Well. I was saying that the discovery of
bidden eggs wm always an excitement, and
there bate been times when the excitement
was prolonged and extreme. It chanced
in tin's wise, and in the goodly State of
Xo nv re neat, careful, exact and scrupul
ous housekeeper ever was seen ia tbe Hoosier
State, than oar fair landlady, who bad ua
in special charge during tbe absence of our
proper bead anil queen, who sought health on
the seaboard. An old-laabionea barn there
was, huge in the middle, with a variety of
beds, lean-tos, stables and carriage-houses,
projecting on every side of it as if the barn 1
had settled a family ot little larne all around
it. It was a faniilv liarn, beloved of hens j
and boys: for in its roomy interior, and in
the passages, bins, nooks and corners, all
sorts of frolics might be carried on, while an
occasional " peak " at tbe erects would keep
tbem informed when the old man was
But bens, who have a secretive tendency,
modesty of tne nest, find their paradise in
such a voluminous barn. Here they may lay
in silence, and proclaim it in vociferous j
cackles, bringing down the whole barnyard
in chorus, and making echoes in the neigh
boring hen yards, and jet the searcher finds
" That peskv hen ! she lays every day,
and yet wc are" none tbe better tor her eggs, j
I wonder where the creature hides ' If Har
vey was half as smart as his father. I know
he ooulo una inai nest.
Again and again came the exultant cackle,
and again and again wc were without
And so, one mellow autumn day, we wan
dered through the garden and strolled into
the barn. It was not so foil but that it had
tbe sense of great peace. It was lestooncd
with cobwebs and had all the tribes of
spiders tbat bide in haif lights. We climbed
the beams, we janiped down from far up on
tbe hay, and finally, after sundry amuse
ments lay down by the side where tbe shrunk
boards gave us an inspection crack, from
which we swept the neighborhood saw and
were unseen. Soon we heard the least possi
ble sound of a foot on the hay. Turning
our head wc ltcocld the produethc but un
profitable hen stealing toward her secret
nest. It was tbe one time too often. We
knew as much as she did.
How rapacious are all conquerors ! There
was tbe rounded nest, well sunk in a corner,
full, brimfull ol eggs thirteen, besides one
for a nest egg ' As oriental kings despoil a
captured city, rob its people, pull down their
choice architecture and quite discrown its
beauty, so wc iound the nest glowing white
as marble, and left it like hay.
Is there not a providence for bens ? Is
there not a fate tbat follows the most obscure
and onwatcbed i iolence '
We put the eggs safely in our coat-tail
pecket. and walked cauti msly. It recalled a
piece of disreputable carelessness on our fa
ther's part, who once sat down on a dozen
eggs, and went up as if every egg was a
bomb, and every bomb in explosion. But
then be was a notoriously absent-minded
man. Ilw very example was our own safety.
And yet we dwelt, with some inward mirth,
as we walked to tbe houte, on tbe ludicrous
igurc which our father cut. Dinner ws--spread
as we came in. Sjmc question came
up which diverted our thought from the dis
covery of the nest indeed we forgot that we
bad eggs about us, and drew to the table and
set down with an alacrity which was only
equaled by the spring with which we got

I drew my hand from my pocket, streaming
with liquid chickens, never to be born, and
tbe disgusting secret was out ! That woman
was a saint! My pockets were duly cleansed,
without one cuttmgword. I can imagine the
process, but I never like to dwell upon it.
Would you believe it, the same thing hap
pened in a few weeks again ? It did. and to
the same person ' But never since then, no
never ! From that day to this wc do not
remember ever to have even taken an egg

mail by sending for it, so he visited the post
office with the following results -
I found a little sandy-haired, heavy-jawed,
fuU-stomaebed man pegging away at an old
boot on a cobbler's lieoeh. I asked this in
dustrious son of St. Crispin for the postmas

lie might be a Sam or a him, but I looked
incredulous upon toe fact asserted or referred
to, of postmastership. He continued to
drive in the pegs, whistling as shoemakers
are wont to whistle, in a waxy way, a tune
that, when accompanied by their proper
words, refers t't souie sot t ot eccentricity of
the weasel when popping, whatever that may
be. I looked at this vegetahlo production
with carroty hair and reddish cheeks, as he
pegged and popjcd, an.! finding that he in

was told, briefly, in words, to wit :
" Ain't nothing for yon," and then be took
up the extraordinary weasel. I remonstrated,
and asserted that 'there must be some mis
take. " Well," he said, " go look for yourself.
There's tbe P's."
1 did as directed, and found eighteen letters
and a pile of newspapers.
" What tbe devil do you mean by saying
I had no mail?"
' Is that your name?" he asked, coolly.
Certainly it is."

OuxfiK of Ponuc Opinio IX .VUL1.P A
London letter of a recent date says: "The
change of public opinion in nngland respecting
the war is sttrprising. The Times has not only
taken up the defence of the Emperor, and proved
him to be the most unselfish, deToted and heroic
cf sovereigns, but it now declares that the French
position is improving every day, while that of
tbe Germans is every day growing more difiioult ;
and yesterday, in an able leader, it strenuously
opposed the dismnberment cf France as useless
to Germany and a cause of future wars rather
than any assurances of peace. Either the
change of public opinion in England mait be
even greater than appears on the surface, or the
Government is prepannr to take some action .
The empathies of En eland are verv deenlv
t stirred. Nearly two millions of dollars have
l already been contributed to the relief of the
wounded It begins to be seen that a porer
that can destroy the armies of France and in
close Paris in a line of steel, might also, if it
wished, scatter its Chlaas over England and oc
cupy London. Every country in Eurooe is nt
the mercy of a power that can conquer a'cd dis
member France, whenever ambition or greed
shall set it in action. Every power must arm
against it ; and if that is not sufficient , every
other power must combine to limit its encroach

Emperor and his army at Sedan He was sen
cf Garnier de Cassagnac, the eminent journal
ist. He was not thirty when ne died. He was
famous for his equally expert and reckless use of
his pen and his sword. The former was con
stantly employed in resenting the attacks of
Republican editors upon the Emperor, whom he
served with no half-way nor mercenary fidelity.
Tbe other was never relieved from the task of
defending himself in the duels which haughty

thear.s of jM-'ace require a much larger use of
tbe explosive than the arts of war, and that con
eeqaently France and Germany will burn A

of the owners of a Urge powder-mill in this
State infoimed us recently, that he could make
at his establishment before breakfast any
morning all tbe powder that was consumed at
Gettysburg. General Butler stored more
powder in his "bomb ship," which he ex
ploded agiins: Fort Fisher in North Carolina,
than was urcd in some of our most important
battle. War takes from mines, manufac
tories, farms, etc., tens of thousands of men
who are constantly engaged in consuming gun
powder for various purpotes. In the army they
pais months, perhaps years, in idleness, and no
occasion is athrded for its use except in salutes,

Mr. Wood of FairiuTtn, said tbey reported in
favor of the bill because it is a mutter of oom- 1
pla.nt throughout the State, that some towns
did not want an agent appointed, anl this bill
provides that such towns may elect at their
March meetiegs not to have such agent.
Mr. Hinckley of Chelsea, was opposed to the
bill in committee He thoaght it would work
unfavorably, and its effect would be to nullify
the law of the State in regard to the traffic in in
toxicating drinks. He was opposed to opening
such questions to be decUed in the heat of town
i meetings. Minorities have rights which major

ride the rights of the minorities ia such tons as
woull vote to do without an agenL'There should
be a place in every town where liquor can be
obtained fir mechanical aad medicinal purposes;
and this bill would favor those ho wish to sell
illegally, enabling them to get out their friends
i under the cry cf no agent, and by ote of the '
oppose any open
regard to the sile of intoxicating liquors.
Mr. Bisbecof Newport, said he was with the
majority of the committee on this bill. We he
lieved its provisions were wholesome, and that
it was much better to let the towns decide the
nutter for them scire?. We hare a good and
wholesome law, but majorities rule, and if the
majority of the voters in town do not desire an
agent appointed, let them have the privilege.
Mr. Drake of Rnjalton, said ne believed the

Mr. Bison of Mendon thought th bill woni.l
be productive of no good in community, and he
hoped the bill would not pass. We had better
place more restrictions upon the commissioner,
and strengthen rather than weikea tbe present
Mr. Bull of Hancock, briefly fit ored the bill.
Mr. Hinckley said that one town needs an
agent just as much as another ; there are people
ia every town that need liquors for medicinal
purpose, anl they have the right to have them
without being compelled to go out of town after
them. Minorities nave rights in this matter as
well as in all others, and we should not leaieit
in the rower cf majorities in a particular town
to completely nullify a wholesome law of the
Mr. Buell of Middletown, favored the passage
of the bill, because it put in the power of the
towns to curtail the traffic in liquors. If they
do not want it in towns let them vote it out, and
not let us, as legislators, forje it upon them
when they do not want it.
Mr. Groutcf Barton, said tbe bill did n:t al
low the towns to vote rum out of town, but only
to vote not to have an agent in town. The ten
dency of such action would be to increase the
illicit traffic in liquors. If the agency in any
town is allowed to become a tippling shop, it is
wesaw we awru Hnuowa 01 tae town allows ' 11 tie toon pat tbe wmcnttce itseir wouhl u

of population that will prohaMe entitV u-t still

thought we ouh; not tj -jo so far as t admit

Mr. Irake svd no bill now bef re tbe Legisla

it would cot !dimifwd. Let us Jel. berate
upon the matter and not act hastily
Mr Brown of Riehford was apposed to the b.I'
as being orrreesive to the great farming inter
ests of the Mate, in that it w ul I f .'-ce the pay
ment of a h'gher rate of interest by a class of
men who wen oom pel led to purchase their farms
on credit. He wanted to kill cS the wade batch
of these b lis at once
Mr Wood cf FairhaveB, fivored the passage
cf the bi'l is being really in the interest of the
farming com-nunity. Money will seek its mar
ket where it will command the highest rate of
interest, anl if we deny to moneyleaders the
right tn ik and receive a higher rate than 6 per
cent, we compel mAney lender to carry their
money out of the Sae. In Massachusetts they
