At D( witz. in the neighborhood of Prague, there once lived rich and whimsical old farmer, who had a beautiful daughter. The students ol Prague cf whom there were at that time twenty-five thousand, often walked in the direction of Dew itz and moie than one of them offered to follow tbe pluogh, in hopes of becoming ibe soc-ui-Uw of the fartmr. The first condition that the cun ning peasant set on cacb cew servant wan this : "I engage you," he would say, "for a year, that is, till the cuckou sings the re turn ol spring ; but if , from now till then, you ray once you are not satisfied, I will cut t ff the end of your nos.-. 1 give you the same right over me," be added, laughing. And be did as be said. Prague was lull of students with toe ecds ot their noses glued on, which did not prevent an ugly sear, and, si ill less, bad iokes. To return from tbe h.:ai disfigured and ridiculed was well eal ctilaUd : coul the wannest passion I A Yuur-g man by the name of Coranda, j p. nu w tat ungainly in manner, but cool, '-it. and cunning, which art njt had aids :i. m ikuif. une's lirtunc, "cx-k it in his head i. iry tl.e adventure. The farmer received ' . itii " iih : i-i usual good nature, nnd, the , Ij.ii -i in made, sent him to the field to work. ; Ii. t.riaksdst-tnse the other servants were c.iled. !.ut good care was taken to forget j C'urat.da. At dinner it was tbe same. Cor ! anda gayc liimsell no trouble about it lie I went to tbe house, and while tlie farmer's 1 wile was feeding the obickens, unbooked an ' enoTiuous bam lrota the kitchen rafters, took j a huge loaf from tbe cupboard, and went j back to the fields to dine and take a nap. "Arc you satisfied?" cried the farmer, vh muiuvu at iiigua. "Pcrlccdy -tL-fitd," said Coran.i; "I have dintd Utter than you have." At that instant tbe farmer's wife came rushing in. crying that her ham wss gone. Coranda laughed, and the fanner turned pale. "Arc you not satisfied?" asked Coranda. "A ham is only a ham." answered his master. "Such a trifle does not trouble me." But after that time be took good care not to leave the student fasting, Sunday cam-. Tbe farmer and bis wife seated themselves in the wagon to go to church, saying to (voranda, "It is your busi es to cook the dinner. Cut up the niece of meat you see yonder, with onions.carrots. leeks, and parsley, and boil them all togeth er in toe great rut over the kitchen tre. "Terr well, answered Coranda. There was a little pet dog at the farm- bouse by the name of Parsley. Coranda tailed bun, skinned nun, cut bun op with the meat and vegetables, and put the whole to boil over the kitchen tiro. When the iarmcr's wife returnee, she called her favor ite ; but, alas ! sbe saw nothing bat a Uoodj akin hanging by tbe window. j " r bat nave you done 7 ' said sbe to Car-1 anda. What you ordered me, mistress. I have boiled tbe meat, onions, carrote. and leeks end parsley in the bargain." "Wicked wretch : cried the farmer, bad vou the heart to kill tbe innocent creature that was the joy of tbe house ?" Arc you not eatigtan? said lor&cda, taking bis knife from bis pocket. "I did noc say that," said tbe tanner. A dead dog is nothing hut a dead dog." But be sighed. A few days alter, tbe farmer and bis who went to market. Flaring their terrible ser vant they said to him, ''Stay at home, and do exactly what you see others do." " I ery well, said Uoranua. There was an old shed in the yard, the roof of which was falling to pieces Tbe carpenters came to repair it, and began, as usual, by tearing down the roof. Coranda took a ladder and mounted the root ot the house, which was quite new. hinglts,latfa. nails, and tiles, be tore on everything, tract scattered tbem all to the winds. When the farmer returned, tbe house was open to tbe J. , . 'Milam : 1 ' eaia ne, "west new tries nave you played me?" i nave oneyea you. master, ausvtereu Coranda. "You told me to Co exactly what I saw others do. Are you not estUfied?" And be took out his knife. 'Satisfied !"' returned the larmc-r ; "why should I not be satisfied. A few shingles more or less will not ruin me." But be signed. .Night came : tbe farmer and bis wife said to eaeh other that it was high time to get rid ot this Incarnate demon. As is always tbe case with sensible peoiile, they never did anything without consulting their daughter, it being the custon in Bohemia to taink that children always have move wit than their parent'. "rather, ' eaia Helen, "l willLtfc in toe grcst tear tree early in the moraine, and call like tbe euckoe. You can tell Coranda that the year is up, since the cuckoo is sing ing ; pay him, and send him away." harly in the morning we plaintive cry oi the cuckoo was heard through the fields. Tbe farmer seemed surprised. " N ell, my boy, Spring is come," said be. "Do you bear the euckco singing yonder? I will pay you, and we will part good friendr. "A cuckoo !"' said Coranda ; "that is a bird which I havealwavs wanted to sec" lie ran to tbe tree and shook it with all his might, when, behold ! a voting girl fell from the branches', fortutmtely more fright ened than hurt. "Villain !" cried tbe farmer. ""Are you not satisfied?" said Coranda, opening bis knife. "Yretch ! you kill my daughter, and you think that 1 oubt to be satitfied. lorn fur ious. Be gone, if you would not die by my hand." "1 wfll go when I have cut off your nose" said Cora mis. "1 baye kept my word ; do you keep yours." , "fT1- cried the farmer, putting hii hwJd teforc bis lace. "You will eurcly let me redeem mv nnM" "It depenason what yon offer," said Co- l&UUOa " WiHjou take ten sheep far it ?' 'Ten oows?" "No-; L would rather cutoff yBUr uom." And ho ehErpcned his knllo on tbe door-step, "Father,'1 said IIcloi, "the fault wai mine ; it belongs to me to repair it. Coran tls, will you teko my bind instead of my j father's note?" "Yes," replied Coranda. j "I mike one condition," said the young girl We will make tbe same bargain ; tbe first of us that is not satisfied alter mar- tiace shall liare his noso cnt off by tbe Otncr. "Good," replied Coranda. rather it was the touguc ; but "I would that will ooaic next." Never was a Goer weUdit seen in Prague, and never was there a happier household. Coranda and the beuatiful Helen were a model pair. Tbe husband and wife were never heard to complain of each other ; they loved with drawn swords, and, thanks to their ingenious bargain, they kept fur long yeais both their lore and their uoees.

"Isn't there a dog here?" said sbe pres- l euuy. "Yes, darling," said the dog's owner, as sbe banded it to the child, looking uncom fortable no longer ; tbe blind face turned to hers seemed to charm away its nervousness. "What a dear little fellow?" said Clytie, and the rough terrier grew popular. "Do tbey let you go far slonc?" said toe cross woman. "O.ycs." The little one gave s low, glad laugh of triumph. "I've been to the blind school ! I can do everything fur myself " uuid you nund saying that again, my dear?

"Have you many sisters and brothers?" asked lbs young lady. "Mo, only Envy, and one brother, baby Tom ; he's such a great, fat fellow, and be laughs you can't think how be laughs?"

As long ago a 1815 Elkanah Watson, Port Kent, published some statistics of the growth of the United States, and some esti mates drawn, thercfrom.o fits further growth. The latter were ridiculed at the time by many ; but time has singularly verified their correctness. Jlr. Wstion's estimates for 1820, 1S30 and 1840 ilo cot in any case vary- 00,000 from the actual census. He estimat cd that oar population in 1SC0 would tc 23.135.3C3. It was by the census 23.191,- S70. lis placed our population in 1SC0 at 31,753,821. The cen.;s of 1SC0 makes it 31,145,080. His calculations cxtcnied to the year 1900, Ins enimtto for which was 100,350,985 ! Keiaembcriog that the ponulation of Great Britain is but 29,000,000; of 1'ranrc 37,000,000, or Austria 35,000,000 ; or all Kurope 286.000,000, and or tho World 1.01,000,000, it will be allowed that if the estimates for the future approximate any where near as cljsely to the truth us those ior tbe past, we arc likely to have here a "great Country." That it will be one I country 'or a generation to cotne, tecni cer ' tain ; that it will offer ir renter attraction insn ever to immigrants irotu otner lands is likely ; and it is by no means a wild antici pation to conclude that many who have been mourning in years past over tbe ruin of the Country may live to see it contain one-tenth of all the population of th. lobe, and stand ing confessedly the mightiest nation of the World. Thi Pesmox or Co.ncits. In a lecture in Boston on the 27 ult , Hon. Geo. S. ltoutwell, of Massachusetts, said : "From what I know of the purpose and opinion cf Congress, I do not hesitate to My, that the great majority of the loyal men hers" of the two Houses are in favur of declarine - br solemn resolution or public act, that the governments 1 t up in these ten (Southern) States are ittnpil ! "'d invalid, and shall exercise authority no nger; and by lezislative authority establish L'uvernnwnts in those districts, call them terri t rial governments, or what you will; and in t!.? set establishing those governments decide tnatstl loyal male citizens shall be entitled to b right of suffrage." This is an important statement. That the n-tjority of (.'ongms, bclicic that there lias I). en undue assumption of authority by tbe President, in the reconstruction of the Situthern States, is unquestionable ; that tbey propose that Congress, not Mr. Johnson, si'all establish tbe terms of admission, k ; m undoubtedly tbe case. But that Con g. est would formally adopt the doctrine of '- State suicide," and undertake to legislate fvr tbe late rebel States a? ttrritoriis, we 1 are not believed, nor do we, Mr. lljulwell I., tbe contrary it that is what he means n twithstandio;. The governments which C -tigress will organise, will be, we take it, Siote governments, based on tbe loyal pop ulation. Washington dispatches say that tbe Gov ernment is in possession of advices which leave no room to doubt that the British Cab inet will recognise the A Is hams claims, and, in return, our own Cabinet will recognise t) British claims against this country. Indus Hostilixs Despatches from Fort L ramie report a grand coalition of twelve tribes oi Indians, for hostilities against the whites in Dacotab and Montana territories. Tliu uumlcr of warriors w estimated as high as 11,000 ; but ibis is doubtless an exager ati n. The recent massacre near Port K'..rneT is confirmed. Cul. Feltermac and ni ty men went after the Indians, and were g lually drawn on until at a point four m. is from the fort they were surrounded at. . slaughtered. Not a man escaped. Tbe bodies were stripped of every article of cloth ing, scalped and mutilated. Thirty bodies were found in a space not larger thau a good sited room. Nearly all tbe bodies were re colored and buried in fie fort. i.nator Eosr.vns introduced in the Seri al iict week, a bill to l .-event illegal voting in ' e Disttict of Columbia. It punishes wi i impris nment ol not less than two ni .'.I'S or more than mx months any attempt to - .tc without being duly registered as a vo' r, or the voting or attempting to vote m -e than once, end further disqualifies fr in voting thereafter in tbe District, any one who so offends against the law. The bill, if it becomes a law, will render it diffi cult for reVis to evade its provisions; and t iere is no reason why it should not piss. Ine bill establishing equal suffrage in the Di-trict of Columbia has been followed by th.-adoption of tbe resolution of Mr. Stcv enf providing fcr tbe organization of free scl wis in tbe District of Columbia, in which no distinction shall be made on account of col Mr. Trumbull, of Illinois, made a speech, in the U. S. Senate, about a week ago in which he showed that the tanloning power could not be taken from the President of tbo Uoitcd States by any action of Congress. His power to grant rcpricvts and pardons comes frmn a provision of the Constitution; and by judicial decisions he can grant pardons Lc tor. as well as after conviction. r.o Washington IitpuHiean says that Cul b Lyon of Ljonsdalc, N. Y., late Gov- cm r cf the Territory of Idaho, who reports , , . , .-. linrt r. tbi" be w'18 of 4' ,n GoTcrn- mt nt funds in the cars a few nights ago, has ncv r accounted for about $100,000 ad va'.'td to him by tho-Government at various times. The Admission ol Excluded States. From the Richmond Examiner. WasniMrrox, Dec. 20, 180C. A very important movement is on foot for the cdmteion of excluded States upon the I ad ption of the Constitutional Amendment, ! Tl.- South Carolina Legislature will receive, I in a dav or two, ample assurances mat sen- at, ;g and Representatives from that Stato, di.lv qualified, will be admitted upon tbe atN at of tbat body to tho Congressional Amendment. Mr. Wetherby, came here a day or two ago as a Deputy' fiom members ol tbe Legislature frcia Sooth Carolina, to Inruire whether the Stato would be' restored if she ratified the Amendment, there being am mg the members of tic Jigtilaturc a iloiit.t uron the subicct. . V. . MriVtlbcrbvjhad! a conference -with loiding'Radical Senators and members upon the subject. (lie returned last niht, on bis way to Columbia, with sitirfactory assur ances that the State s!i -uld It admitted upon tlio terms mentioned.

We have had fur sever .1 days u,on our table a rcly from a deuttirat in New Ynrk, to a refent article in the Keki Put.-, in which we alluded to the niuVimeot of the Chicago Tints, Boston Post, and utber de moeralic journals, in favor of universal suf frage, as an evidence of the d miiralixatioa and coming break up of the Democratic patty. "Acnlis," stoutly dinies, with more word than uc can vu-11 find room fur, that there is any prospect ol such a break up, or that the papers alluded to are true representatives of tbe demoetatic party. He g ics on to say : No journal, bowevtr it may have aeo rded with their previous opinions, may be raid to lead tbem (the Democracy). When tbey discover a sheet, hitherto their friend, advocating the cidw of their oblical adversaries, tier east it asttte anet transfer their patronage to cne more worthy of it- So far from producing the ethane of political teatiment which ? on predict, sueb a one only brings upon itself the rccrn of those who once almired and favored it. It will be denied aeeess to the households whose doors had previtmilr been open to ainiit itacd iecricd.by a thousand tongues, gratified, not long since, to declare Its praises Its influence will be gone ; its popularity as an exponent cf Ivmocratie sentiment will have fled ; and, ai a cn-suciu. it will 1. 1 powerless to produce the results, to whua ; ou look forward with so mueh of evident exultation. It can have no hand in producing, ahile it holds its place in oar ranks, that tuetaed day of social repose, which you so classically term the " Political Millenium "which is. in met, nothing more, in your conceit, thaa the complete triumph of the Kadical cause. L'ven could it under these circumstance, re tain hj mfiuenee over the Democratic Party, and bv its arts persuade its nnwilliog members to enter the Radical fold, wo u!J yeu dare to draw taiUt'ul picture of the " millesium." whose approach it would thus assist to acceler ate? That you might, perhaps, 1 1 prevailed upon to make the attempt I shall not dispute ; but I would be little incline 1 to credit its truu- fulntu upon its completion. If its con templation b- as repulsive to you as it a to me, you would certainly hesitate to disclose its most oharaeteritMe features. If the Radicals triumph without bloodshed, a ' Millenium " will follow which we would willingly avoid. It way be characterised by repose ; but it will be the repose of a people held in bonJjs. by the chains which they have forged with their ova hands, and too unambitious to aspire to a better condition. It will arise, not from the reciprocal affections of a magnanimous people, but from tbe aisolute necessities of our pal Ui eal condition. It will be a result, not of mu- fu7 conproatw, but of tbe entire alsenec of public spirit and psUriotic impulse m the na tion. It will come when the American spirit shall have left our bosom ; when our r rerenct for the Constitution shall be directed to a less worthy object ; when all the barriers, erected in 1738 against oppression , shall be levelled ; and when tbe power, now running through a thoutand well ehcsen-ehannels. shall paw over the bed of a single wide and swollen stream. Its blessings (!) will te deferred, till ne are in uaisisfe and unable to appreciate them ; till we are apathetic and disinclined to tnjoy Iktm; till we are efrerruoWand powerless to oianaai cat' them. Such an issue ot the struge!e, now going en in this country, may be dulant ; but, unlets tkc work of tke last Jite years be undone, it is inevitable. Agitation originated it ; the late civil strife, brought on through Radical agency for that exclusive purpose, has invigor ated il ; it derives new energy from the oppres sion of ihc South, the prtluie to the ertnlual oppremon of the whole people ; and half of the citiztLS have, at the late election!, unooLscioas ly, I hepe, jiren tktir terdict in its fucor. Itea-cn as wc may, but little more will be re quired to consummate tbe infamcus scheme. Already tbe rights of tbe State, and Ibe true principles of Republican Government are i-aor-ed ; already the work of concentration is half accomplished. To conclude-, let me nsturc you tbat in what J have said I have intended to say nothing dero gatory to yourself. I am mueh pleased with tbe general moderation cf your editorials.no less than tbe ability which marks the publication under your charge. However I may look upon the intentions of the leaders of your party.I con sider that your advocacy cf their cause consists with jour view of ycur duty to your Country. I exonerate you from any participation in their schemes. I can enly regret that so good an un derstanding and so honest a heart should enlist thetntclvei in to bad a cause. Anus. Wc suppose we ought to doff our hat and make )ur beet bow in recognition of such al together unmerited praise from a political opponent, as well as to tender our thanks for the kind (and equally undeserved) ex oneration from the guilt of a chare in tbe terrible schemes and responsibilities of tbe radicals. Will Acolis " please consider the proper thing done, on our part ! In one thing evidently our correspondent and we agree He sees, as plainly ss we do, inc near and lull triumph ot republican principles in our Country. And if he would look at it rightly it would bo cause with him not for such gloomy forebodings, but for thanks and rejoicing. Ilo makes the com mon mistake of overlooking ono clars ot "lights " in his care for another. What are the rights which will be ' destroyed by he eocecsiof what he calls radicalism', but which is true conseiVat ism ? They aro the right of men with skins ol otic color to hold men of toother color, or whose ancestors were once of another color, in bondage ; right of exclusive possession of civil, social and political power, education and influence, by an aristocratic class, in a dczen States the union : the richt of Secession, or other words, the right of a State t3 dissolve tbe Union, and to destroy the Constitution for the of the Lind ; the ricbt to " wallop one's nigger," and to tar and feather abolitionists. The loss of these "rights" will doubtless bo a great deprivation to a portion of our peo ple ; but bow will the balance stand, it wc gain for the tchok people, the rights of life, liberty, and tiie pursuit of happiness ; the right of education and of suffrage without distinctions of class or color; the right of Irco speech, and ol free travel in every State, for every citizen of the land ; if we' thus establish, at last, a free, intelligent, homo geneous, and truly great as well as power ful ration ? For eueh an end wc labor, with Such powers a God has given us. What is "Acolis" doing to help on the great result ? The Crent Occnn Yacht Hnce. TUK UEXKIETTA THE WIX.NIR. The fsruous yncht race across the ocean, resulted in the triumph of the Ilcnrittta. which arrived at Cowcson Christmas day, at forty-five minutes pas five o'clock. As the yaohts left their starting point at Sandy Hook at one forty-five on the 11th the passage was made by the Henrietta in thirteen days and twenty tteo Aourj.mean time.

James Coedo-v Bennett Jr. the winner of one of the most notable raecs on the water ever known, and puts in his pocket the com r.rtable little sum of $90,000, stake money, tiiougb somewhat different from the antici pations of many of the " knowing ones" and betting men in Xew York, with whom the Fiettmg was the favorite, will be very satis factory to tho public. Tbe Herald baa bean for years stirring up the Yacht Club to an ocean race, and Jlr. Bennett was the only one cf tbe three owners who had the pluck to Mil in his own yacht. He has fairly won bis laurels, and bis triumph will effectually wipe out the memory of " Plum gut."

The Henrietta arrived at the JTcedlca off Cowes at forty-five minutes past five last evening, and the FIcetwing arrived at two o'clock this mor ning, and tbe Vesta at half past three.

We take tbe following from a report or a recent meeting or the Farmers Club or Westminster, Vt. in thc Bellows Falls Times. A petition was presented for tbe consid- of the Club, asking Congress "to levy such duties upon forekn Wool and Woollens 'uring the present session as will give equal and ad. quote protection to the Manufactur er and iol Glower, that tic Utter may in bis attractive pursuit, pursue it with profit. ani not be obliged to abandjn the same. A law stable, plain, brief, specific, and that s'lall take effect from its passage." In dis ousting tbe petition, the following facts were mmtioned : English JIanufaciurers import wool chiefly from Australia, Cape of Good Hope, British India and South America. The three first, the English control ss ooknies, tho last mainly through English capitalists engaged in wool growing. Six years ago no fine wooled sheep were fvund in iiuenos Ayrrs. but now as a re sult cf tbe investment of large capital in the enterprise sbe exports yearly several million pounds of tine merino wool, ami her numerous nocks are in a fine state of perfection. American capital also is Sowing to lsuencs Ayies. Two men, citizens of the United States, produced there the past jear, -iAI.vvv poutuis of wool.

Tbe whole United States produced tbe past year 120 million Its. nhich is about one half of our present consumption. At tne port of .New leik alone there were imported this year 32 million lbs. cf wool or 13 million lbs. more than were imported into the wholeoountry in 1861. The amount of Woolen machinery has doubled in this country tince 1S6I. Only one or two factories in this vicinity will manufacture wool for tbe firmer but several far mers ol the town had hail their wool so worked un the rait vear and the cloth cost them $1.00 per yard, and was ioW by them at once for 5I.QO per yard. line te shown the unequal protection to thc raanut:turer. Jlr. Great opposed the petition. The manu facturers and a few wtcl-groweis were desirous cf monopolizing great profits. He thought tho petition illiberal lie feared Vermont would be turned into one great sheep-pasture. Men rich with a thousand sheep and a thiueind acres were parceling cut between thegi the whole State. Jlen of moderate means must move oat. The State would be depopulated. One formsrly populous School District in Westminster had been reduced from this cause ss reoorted by the Town Saperiotendant, to having a school of oniyour children, i ne uci was sjmpiy iai; The wool-eTowinc tutiness was overdone. Too much moner had been made in it. There must be a collapse, and capital must Sow into ether channels. A tariff would only apply aa unnatur al stimulus, and wouu at loliowea oy aaaiuouai demands. Jlr. Farr and Pierce replied to these etrie- tures showing how closely every induainai pur suit in Vermont was allied to the wool-crowing interest and that fears cf injury "to Iho State by 'her success in this bracch, were groundless. At the doss of the discussion the club adopted the petition almost unanimously, and commit' tees were forthwith appointed for circulation. 1 Kcmascs ix Keal Live.

A Washington despatch says a member of the South Carolina Senate recently bad an interview with President Johnson, when thc "xeeutive gave it as his opinion that the Soul: r-a States should reject the Constitu tional Amendment, and mid that such action would, he hoped, he sustained by tbe Su preme Court. Another special says that the President expresses the opinion tbat the Constitutional Amendment will be adopted as a portion of tbe fundamental mw of tbe country. Still another states that on Jlonday last, the President " expressed unabated confi dence in tbe final triumph of his restoration policy." Our readers can bavc their choice of these reports. Horace Greeley pronounces untrue the statement tbat be ever proposed tbat tho Rebel States shell b: restored to all their former rights, yet allowed to withhold thc right of .suffrage from their blatk citizens. Mr. Greeley does not quote in this connec tion, the recent declaration made by him over his own initials in the Tribune: ' I am for universal amnesty so far as immunity from fear of jittnisbiaent or eonfiacation is concerned even though impartial suffrage I should for tho present be resisted and de- I feated. The Fenian Trials. Tbe trials at Sweets burgb, progress pretty rapidly. The prison ers arc defended by Jlr. Devlin, assisted ty Jlr. O'Halloran. One of tbem. JIadden, who was shot by the oficer arresting him, and etill carries two balls in his neck, was tried last week and sentenced to be bung. Thomas Smith was declared guilty by the Jury on tbe 2Ctb, and scntenoed to be hung on thc 15th of February. James Reardon was declared not guilty, under the instructions of thc Judg?, who were liberally ruled that there was no evidence that tbe prisoner (wbo had been stationed by Gen. Spear at a private house to guard the in mates) was in arms 3gainst her Majesty, or any evidence whether " this Gen. Spear " was a Fenian or British general. In tbe case of Terence McDonald tho jury disHgreed and were disc barged. There bavc been several vigorous scares amonr tbe military stationed at i:wecl3 bursh, and fresh orders were iwued to them on tho 20tb, to prepare for an attack, as an invasion from St. Albans was anticipated. Thc Fenian lenders, to whom the govern ment restored tho Springfield muskets seized in Vermont, gave bunds not to use tbem against any nation at ieuec with the United States. They will keep the agreement to tbe letter, having already exebanged the old muskets for hreech-loading rifles. As stranzr as it may appear, many of Ibe colored people hero cherish the belief that thcro is a class ol physicians wno practice " burking," and are"addicttd to the dissec tion of live human subjects for the purpose of manufacturing oastor oil, and that for this purpose thc doctors prefer bodies with a dark cuticle. This opinion is so firmly im pressed on their minds, tbat no amount ot reasoning will remove it, and wo know many of them, particularly juvenile Africans, who will not budge a foot outside their dwellings after dark. An otherwise intelligent "Top sy," employed by us, describes the modus operandi of these imaginary ghouls, by say ing : ' Dcy steal upon culb-d persons una ware, clap a ilaster over deir moot to keep um from bollenn', and den drag om away to wbar dey lay um on a tablo and cut up, and den bile um down lor ile." This i a cheer ful notion for thoro invalids who use tbe oil of tho palma christa bean as a cathartic. Tbe Annapolis (Mel.) Republican states that a similar belief prevails among the colored people in that section, and it probably exists elsewhere. How it originated it is impossi ble to tell. Washington Star.

Ryer, the Architect of tho tasteful structure now in process of erection on thc North East corner of Church and College Streets, by the Firet National Bank, for tho sub stance of the following description of it. When completed, the building will present two not highly ornamented yet handsome and substantial brick and stone fronts, of 25 feet 6 inches on Church street, by 43 feet on College street. Tho basement story is quite plain, of brick, the openings having segment beads. Thc principal story is relieved Ly a series of brick pilasters with stone bases and caps, from which are sprung boldly relieved brick arches, which sdd materially to the strength and appearance of the whole building. Immediately above the arches is placed a grey stone cornice or bclt-couree, from which start thc upper window openings, tbe main feature of which is that cacb is carried up through the third story in an elongated opening, divided in the centre by an orna mental iron panel. Tbe bead of the opening is finished by bandsomo iron caps. This style of window opening is new in Burlington, Is altogether very pleasing in effect and gives a distinct character to thc entire building. Tho brick work will go about seven feet above the heads of the third story caps at about three feet above thc caps will be a paneled frieze in brick work, immediately above which will te placed thc dentil course and crown of the main cornice, wbicb will bo supported by eight or ten handsome trusses or brackets. The cornice will be carried across both fronts. All tho outside iron and wood work will be painted and sanded to imitate thc grey stone on the first 6tory. which will very much tmprove ihe ap pearance ef thc building. All of thc win dows arc to be glazed with the best quality French pUtc glass, those on principal story to be single lights to tho sash ; thc effect ot this gtasd will be very fine. The interior of the Bank and the Directors Roum Till be finished and fitted up in a most thorough manner with all tho modern im provements. Thc basement, 2d and 3d stories, will be fitted tip as first class offices, with marble wash basins, water closets, steam heating apparatus, gas, etc One thing worthy of notice in this build ing the use of wrought iron beams in place of wood ; tliese beams aro to have brick srehes between them, making the building fire-proof as regards tho walls and floor. The extension on College street, will be put up very neatly, with iron stsro front, urirk above. 2 1 and 3d story openings to have neat iron cipa. and tbo wholo to be finished with a Ustelul cornice. The. interior will be fitted with gas, steam. and water. It will in all probability ho pot up this winter. Vo"D.
