The following is Mark Twain's re sponse to the toast ''Babies," at the banquet of the Army of the Tennessee, at Chicago, whieh was the humorous event of the occasion. The fifteenth ami last retrnlar toast was ' The Ba bies—As they comfort us in our sor rows, let us not forget them in our festivities;" anil to this Samuel L. Clemens responded. He said : I like that. We have not all had the good fortune to be ladies. We have not all been Generals, or poets or statesmen, but when the toast works down to the babies, we stand ou com mon ground [laughter] for we have all I been babies. [Renewed laughter.] It is a shame that for a thousand years the world's banquets have utterly ig nored the baby [laughter] a-* if it didn't amount to anything. [Laugh ter] If you will stop and think a minute; if you will go back fifty or one hundred years to your early mar ried life [laughter] and reeontemplate your first baby, you will remember that he amounted to a good deal, and even something over. [Roars] You soldiers all know that when the little fellow arrived at family headquarters you had to hand in your resignation. [Laughter.] He took entire command. You became his lackey ; his mere body servant, [laughter] and you had to stand around, too. [Renewed laugh ter.) He was not a commander who made allowance for time, distance, weather or anything else. [Convulsive screams.] You had to execute his order whether it was possible or not [roars] and there was only one form of marching in his manual of tactics, and that was the double quick. [Shouts.] He treated you with every sort of in solence and disrespect, [laughter] and the bravest of you didn't dare say a word. [Great laughter.] You could face the death storm of Donaldson and Yicksburg, and gave back blow for blow, but when he clawed your whis kers, pulled your hair and twisted your nose, you had to take it. [Roars.] When the thunders of war were sound ing in your ears you set your faces toward the batteries and advanced with steady tread, but when he turned on the terrors of his war-whoop [laugh ter] you advanced in the other direc tion, and mighty glad of the chance, too. [Renewed laughter.] When he called for soothing syrup did you ven ture to throw out any side remarks about certain services being unbecom ing an officer and a gentleman ? [Bois terous laughter.] No, you got up and got it. [Great laughter.] When he ordered his "pap bottle," and it was not warm, did you talk back? [Laugh ter.] Not you. [Renewed laughter.] You went to work and warmed it. [Shouts.] You even descended so far iu your mental office as to take a suck at that warm, insipid stuff, [laughter] just to see if it was right, three parts water to one of milk, [tumultuous laughter] a touch of sugar to modify the colic, [laughter] and a drop of peppermint to kill those immortal hic coughs. -3P[Roars.] I can taste that stuff. [Laughter.] And how many things you learned as you went along. Sentimental young folks still take stock in that beautiful old saying* that when the baby smiles it is because the angels are whispering to him. Yery pretty, but too thin; simply wind on the stomach, my friends. [Shouts.] If the baby proposes to take a walk at his usual hour, two o'clock in the morning, [laughter] didn't you rise up promptly and remark, with a mental addition, which would not improve a Sunday School book much, [laughter] that that was the very thing you were about to propose yourself. [Great roars.] Oh, you were under good dis cipline, [laughter] and as you went pattering up and down the room in an undress uniform [laughter] you not only prattled undignified baby-talk, but even tuned up your martial voices and tried to lung "Rock-a-by, Baby, in the tree-top," for instance. [Great laugh ter.] What a spectacle for an army of the Tennessee! [laughter] and what an affliction for the neighbors, too, for it is not everybody within a mile around that likes military music at three o'clock in the morning. [Laugh ter.] And when you had been keeping this thing up two or three hours, and your little velvet head intimated that nothing suited him like exercise ami noise, [laughter—"Go on"] what did you do? You simply went on until you dropped in the last ditch. [Laugh ter.] The idea that a baby doesn't amount to anything ! Why, the baby is just a house and front yard full by itself. [Laughter.] One baby can fnrnish more business than you arid your whole Interior Department can attend to. [Laughter.] He is enter prising, irrepressible, brim full of law less activities. [Laughter ] Do what you please, you can't make him stay on the Reservation. [Great shouts.] Sufficient unto the day is one lately. [Laughter.] As long as you are iu your right mind, don't you ever pray for twins. [Laughter.] Mr. Clemens is the father of a pair. Twins amount to a permanent riot, [laughter] and ain't any real difference between trip lets and an insurrection. [Uproarous shouts.] Yes, it was high time for a toast to the masses to recognize the importance of the babies. [Laughter.] Think what is in store for the present crop, fifty years from now. We shall I all lie dead, I trust, [laughter] and ! then this flag, if it still survives, and J let us hope it may, will be floating over a Republic numbering 200,000,000 i souls, according to the settled laws of j our increase. Our present schooner of State [laughter] will have grown into a political leviathan—a Great Eastern, i The cradled babies of to-day will be j on deck—let them be well trained, for I we are going to leave a big contract on their hands. (Laughter.) Among j the three or four million cradles now rocking in the land are some which | this nation would preserve for ages as saered things, if we could know which ones they are. In one of these era dies the unconscious Farragut of the future is at this moment teething. (Laughter.) Think of it, and putting in a wort! of dead earnest, inarticulated but perfctlv justifiable profanity over j it. too. (Laughter.) In another the tl ir _I future-renowned astronomer is blinking | at the shining, milky way with but a : liquid interest—poor little chap—and wondering what has become of that other one they call the wet nurse.

(Laughter and applause ) TRAITS OF A NIMALS. A bullfrog recently caught at West chester when opened was found to have swallowed a full-grown mouse. A cat was sent by express, carefully boxed, from Dansvillc to Rochester, a distance of fifty miles. Not many days afterward, tabby came walking into her old home. When a good housewife of Kirkaldy went for a ham that had hung from the rafters, it had a fair exterior, but it was a perfect shell, skin and bone only remaining to show its form, while the rat after living so sumptuously, had built a nest in the center, and was cap tured. A parrot belonging to Capt. Eichel bcrji i?r, of Baltimore, was always pres ent at family prayers. One morning when in the garden, a hawk flew down and seized the parrot, when it shrieked : "Oh, Lord, save us! Oh. Lord, save us!" which so frightened the hawk that he dropped his prize. At Priest's Hotel, on the road from Calaveras Grove to the Yosemite, is a dog who one hour before the arrival of the stage goes leisurely down the road to meet it, then bounds back to the poultry yard, catches chickens, bites their heads off, and takes them to the cook. He takes one chicken for each gentleman in the stage, never making a mistake. An expert in antique coins in Paris is a poodle. The money being placed upon a table the dog is introduced, and after nosing among them will knock off the table all the bad pieces with his paw. After acquiring great fame it was found the whole thing was a trick. His master took care to han dle only the bogus coins, and the poodle's decisions were arrived at by faculty of scent. A wandering "chippy" was picked up by a St. Louis lady and placed in the cage with her canary. In the morn ing it was released, and then the canary mourned as if it had lost its mate. In the evening the chippy re turned, j and was allowed to nestle on the cage, when the canary struck up one of the liveliest notes and seemed gratified. This was repeated for three days. Then chippy failed to return. The canary drooped and soon died. An enormous eagle in Georgia, swept down upon two little girls aged 3 and 5 year.*, throwing them to the ground. It buried its talons in the face and arm of the elder and attempted to carry off the child, but was pre vented by her struggles. A little brother 7 years of age came to her as sistance with a carving knife, slash ing the eagle's legs, when it turned upon the bov, who was soon released by the appearance of Joe Betzler, a neighbor, upon the scene, who shot and killed the bird. It measured seven feet from tip to tip of wing A spider is a glutton, as was evinc ed by an experiment recently made. A gentleman arose at daybreak and supplied a spider, who had an exten sive web, with a fly. This was at 5:55 o'clock, a. nv, in September. The spider was then feeding on an earwig. He came for the fly, rolled him up, and returned to his first course. At T o'clock his earwig was demolished, and the flv at 8 o'clock. At !» o'clock he gave it a daddy-long-legs, which he ate at noon. At 1 he greedily seized [a blow fly, ami during the day he counted I'2o green flies, or midgets, all dead and fast in his net. WHAT WE ARE DOING. [Ainerii-un Manufacturer and Iron World. 1 Probably never in the history of the world have mechanical invention and scientific discovery been brought to !>ear so universally and effectually to cheapen and improve the products of industry as in the past ten years. Es pecially has this been the ease in this country, until, with our manifold labor saving appliances, we have been ena bled to place our wares in all the lead ing markets of the world, competing favorably with the poorly-paid ami cheap hand-labor of the older countries. The iron and steel industries are won derful examples of the progress lpade, every step, from taking the ores from the mine to tin- finished product in tool i r machine, being cheapened by labor saving inventions ; while science comes in to utilize what was formerly con sidered worthless and magnify results in increased values. * Wast furnaces now turn out double the product of former years without increasing the size, and from many parts of the country we have been told that iron was made at from sll to sl4 per ton. Considering these facts, and the facilities now known of util izing our abundant lean and cold short ores, many of our conservative and solid manufactures look with alarm upon the persistent efforts of some of our dealers to "talk up" prices and urge a yet greater advance. If pig iron can be made for sl4 per ton, or even at $1«, it is thought that it would bo best for the interests of trade that the prices ruling for the pa?t few weeks should not continue. The price of iron, like the price of bread, touches vitally so many industrial interests of the world that an advance of from 75 to over 100 per cent., in the face of great reductions in the eost. cannot but react in disaster. INGERSOL L'S RESPONSE. "The Volunteer Soldiers of the Union Army" was a toast at the Grant banquet in Chicago. It was responded to by Col. lugersoll as follows: They were the defenders of humanity, the destroyers of prejudice, the breakers of chains, and. in the name of the future, slew the monster of the time. They fin ished what the soldiers of the Revolu tion commenced. They have relit the torch that fell from their august hands and filled the world again with light. They blotted out from our statute-books the laws passed by hypocrites at the instigation of robbers [loud applause], and tore with brave and indignant hands from the Constitution of the United States that infamous clause that made men catchers of their fellow men. [Applause.] They made it possi ble for judges to be just, for statesmen to be humane, and for politicians to be honest. They broke the shackles from the limbs of slaves, from the souls of masters, and from the Northern brain. They kept our country on the map of the world, and our Hag in Heaven. [Applause.] They rolled the stone from the sepulchre of progress, and found there two angels clad in shining garments—Nationality and Liberty. [Loud applause.] The soldiers were the saviors of the Republic; they were the liberators of men. In writing the Proclamation of Emancipation, Lincoln, greatest of our mighty dead, whose memory is as gentle as a summer air when reapers sing amid gathered sheaves, copied with the pen what the grand hands of brave comrades had written with their swords [Applause.] Grander than the Greek, nobler than the Roman, the soldiers of the Republic, with patriot ism as careless as the air, fought for the rights of others, for the nobility of labor, and battled that a mother might own her child, that arrogant idleness should uot scar the back of patient toil, and that our country should not be a many-headed monster made of warring States, but a nation sovereign, grand and free. [Applause.] Blood was water, money was leaves, and life was only common air, until one Hag floated over one Republic, without a master and without a slave. And then was asked the question, "Will a free people vol untarily tax themselves to pay a na tion's debt?" The soldiers went home to their waiting wives, to their glad children, and to the girls they loved. They went back to the fields, the shops, the mines. They had not been demoralized. Thev had not been en nobled. [Cheers.] Mocking at reverses, laughing at poverty, they made a friend of toil. They said, "We saved the na tion's life, and what is life without honor ?" They wo.k and wrought, with all of labor's royal sons, that ev ery pledge the nation made might be re deemed. And their great leader, hav ing put a shining bond of friendship, a girdle of clasped and loving hands around the glolx;, came home to find, and finds, that every promise mado in war has now the ring and gleam of gold. [Enthusiastic cheers.] There is another question still. W ill all the wounds of war be healed? 1 an swer, yes. The Southern people must submit. Not to the dictation of the North, but to a nation's will and a ver dict of mankind. [Great applause.] They were wrong, and the time will come when they will say that the peo ple are the victors who have been van quished by the right. Freedom con quered them and freedom will cultivate their fields, will educate their children, will weave robes of wealth, will ex ecute the laws and fill their land with happy homes. [Applause] The soldiers of the Uniou saved the South as well as the North. They gave us a Nation. They gave us liberty here, and their grand victories have made tyranny the world over as insecure as snow upon the lips of volcanoes. [Ap plause.] And now let us drink to the volun teers, to those who sleep in unknown and sunken graves, whose names are known only to the hearts they loved aud left, of those who oft in happy dreams can see the footsteps of return. Let us drink to those who died where lifeless famine mocked at want. Let us drink to the maimed whose scars give modesty a tongue. Let us drink to those who dared and gave to chance the care and keeping of their lives. Let us drink to all the living and to all the dead—to Sherman, and to Sheridan, and to Grant, the laureled soldiers of this world, aikl last to Lin coln, whose loving life, lik'; a bow of peace, spans aud arches all the clouds of war.

In all cases where the defendant is found guilty and sentenced to pay a fine and costs of prosecution, or give security to pay the same within ten days or go to jail, and defendant goes to jail and comes out under the bond act, the county is liable. LETTER FROM SCHWARTZ. PABKER, Dec. stb, ,1879. Messrs. Editors —A friend has for warded me a copy of the Butler Eagle dated Nov. 26, in which is a marked article from Cherry township, dated Nov. 7, by one "Timothy Tugraiitton," being an attempt at a comment on an article from me in your columns of my trip through Butler county. I say '•an attempt to comment" and a very poor one at that, as the writer exposes his ignorance and stupidity in more ways Than one. First, he spells my nom de plume wrong every time; will forgive him for that, as he perhaps cannot spell anything longer correct. He raves incessantly about "Dixmont," "tramps," "crazy people," which I can only account for on the purely philo sophic principle, that a "burned child dreads fire," and "insane people see many terrors." "Timmy" has been there himself, consequently knows full well how it goes. He thinks I lived on acorns and chestnuts while out there. Well, he is mistaken. I bad lots of good wholesome hash, chicken and turkey, bread, pies, cakes, pud dings, pickles, Ac, to the full. The friends where I stopped had plenty, had good things, too, and gave freely of what they possessed. The only danger was eating too much. I saw many, but did not see "Tim," or if I did I failed to recognize him, or I would have made a capture for the benefit of Barnum. 11c says that "some of the folks I spoke of are Over seers of the Poor and authorized by law to arrest tramps, Ac., and have them cared for." I must conclude one of two things, either he is a very poor judge, or they are very derelict in their duty, and the latcer is not presumable, as there would have been "money in it." "They have made arrangements with the proper officers to arrest me, &c.," "next time Igo out." Well, I am going soon, and if they me sooner tell them to come and get me. Again, about the date of my letter, the liverymen of Parker'had the police out in Cherry- township on the hunt of a man named "Swartz." Does he know he lies? at least Chief of Police, W. P. Barr, says so. He told me so to-day. They never wanted any such person, in that place or arty other. "Tim" is raving again. He doubtless refers to the visits of the Butler Sheriff and constabulary about six or seven weeks earlier, on the hunt of nearly the whole of Cherry township and a few outsiders to appear in proper per son before His Honor, Judge Bred in, aud, generally, they went, toq, for I saw them in Butler by the, dozen. „ Next, he proceeds to eulogffce Mr. Blnvk's boys, all except a "Black sheep'.' of that flock, at present in or near Parker, who is running a well on his own gas and, he intimates, etarv iug or near it. Well, let me say that "black sheep" is all O K-; is making an honest living for himself and family; has a few cents in ready money, and would to-day have more if some of the Cherry township citizens would pay their honest debts, as he has account* against a few of them that he will sell for thirty cents on the dollar, "on time" and without interest, to a reliable party. Further, I don't tramp; pay all honest debts as fast as presented; don't charge anything for advice ; don't feel bad if it is not taken. Also, I pity poor Timothy T from the soles of my boots. 1 will gamble cents to j>earl buttons that he is u Democrat; that he is, or some of his friends have been, in an insane asylum someplace or, at least, should tie. His best hold at present is to keep still and not expose himself any more; think of the past, aud prepare fbr the future, and by the time they cau "run and support" a Sunday School in that corner, he may get a few ideas fordbd on him that will show him what an asinine creature he has been in the past. As Josh Billings would say, "His muchly," SCHWARTZ. P. S. —l will give one dollar for his original manuscript copy intact, ft ia doubtless a literary curiosity. SCHWARTZ. AMONG the many scattering votes at the late New York State election was one in Syracuse reading thus: "For Gov• enor, The Devil." It has been said of many men that they would vote for the devil, if regularly nominated; this is, |»erhaps, the first case of actually-voting for him. JUIKIK JENKH has refused to hear % motion for the further postponement of the case of the Commonwealth against the Standard Oil Coqjpany now pood, ing in Clarion, and it will 1m called ufa Monday, December 15th. ft is iiigfe * time to make an end of that. —Love is lowliness; on tbe w«d» ding rirjg *ptrV« ao >rwel.
