33W ONLZAW8. BUDAT. TBRUtARY 1, 1874. Another Revolution Proposed. BOME OF THlE THOUSANI) EVILS FLESH IS HEIR TO. Thackeray, in one of the delightful little essays he was wont to scatter so profusely through his stories, points out the enor mous power of little things. The novelist was specially illustrating their force in the boausehold, as factors in making the happi aness or unhappiness of life. Men rise to the dignity of great calamities or great sorrows, and, with a certain large mastery of their natures, bow with submission and patience. But the minor, teasing things of ilfe, the small antagonisms, the petty irritations, the distorbances that arise from causes too insignificant to acknowledge-it is these experiences that fret the brain and nerves, as dropping water wears away the marble, and render so many conditions of life almost intolerable. There has been a great deal of force and enthusiasm expended in the name of liberty. Revolutions have risen, martyrs have fallen, tyrants have been overceme, society has been convulsed, all to secure a political boon which we have assumed to be indispensable to our personal dignity, our happiness, and our welfare. And yet how little government, even in despotic countries, touches the individual person ally! Men not aspiring to political careers have pursued the even tenor of their labors, rarely knowing by actual experience whether they were ruled by a king or a parliament; whether the voice of the whole or the authority of an individual presided over affairs. And yet we know how the world-has been repeatedly convolsed by the struggles of people to assert what is but little more than an abstract principle, while all the time their real felicities have been dependent upon a hundred minor things, which they have left unheeded or submitted to with patience. We have had religions revolutions and political revolu tions, but have never organised a revolu tion to reform many things in domestic and every-day life that have really made up the distorbing conditions of our !ives. Whether tea should or should not be taxed, possibly involved a very high prin ciple, hut wlmat was it to the question, con sidered as to our practical comfort, whether our neighbor shall or shall not empty his ash-barrel T What was it to the question now before us, whether we shall be per mitted to buy real tea, or only ironfilingsY But let as assome that taxation in tea, and all other acts of unlawful authority, involve all the important issues they are believed to do these high principles are at least settled; our liberty is established, with the stars and stripes floating from our liberty poles; so let us, having no other king to overthrod, censider some of those social tyrannies and minor evils that daily affect our personal comfort and peace of mind, and which a popular uprising ought to ex tinguish. It is presumably the privilege of the free and independent citizen of this great re public to walk the streets of the city where ee abides, or even the city where he is a guest, without fear of man. The law can not interfere with his rightful pursuits, and the law is bound to protect him in his rightful pursuits. This would seem to be the crowning glory of liberty. But the law fails to protect him from a hundred nuisances that render the pursuit of his rightful purposes a very great vexation. Why, for instance, must ubiquitous ashmen be permitted to gather their refuse at all bours of tihe day, and at their pleasure cover his well-brushed coat with the flying contents of their recklessly-emptied bar relst Let us have a revolution that will compel ash and garbage gathering to be done at night. But, when the ashmen neglect to dust bis clothes in this fashion, the street sweepers are toleraly sure to perform the operation for him. The street-sweepers are popularly supposed to make use of the watering-cart before beginning their tasks, but usually the preliminary sprinkling is a tradition, and the clouds of dust that are blown into our parlors, lodged in oar lungs, ard arrested by our linen and broad cloth, bear witness to our mouch saffering from the flagrant disregard of our rights. The method and the processes employed for the sweeping of our streets are exasper ating enough to put every citizen into hos tile attitude against the powers that be. Let as have a revolution that will compel street-sweeping to be done at proper hours, under proper restrictions, and by methods that have in view the rights and comforts of the people. Sometimes there is rain. In winter there is frequently snow. Two well-known facts, but we state them for reasons. Now, whether we have rain or snow, we are ex posed to a hundred annoyances from a chronic disregard of our privileges as citi seins of a free republic. One man permits his water-spout to go unrepaired, and it deluges every unsuspecting passer-by. Another permits the accumulated snow to remain on his sidewalk, which, in a thaw, : accommodates us with wet feet, and when frozen dislodges us from our perpendicular. The streets often remain for days nearly impassable after a snow, even while we have an expensive machinery under tite city government for cleansiog and keeping oar thoroughfares in order. We want a revolution that will compel both citisens snd officials to regard the rights and welfare et the community in this particular. Shall we go on and enumerate the many minor matters which affect our comfort so .sentlally, and yet which are so common ly disregarded I Do we not all know about the sidewalks lumbered with deal ers' goods ? about the neighbor whose un fastened window-shutter, in a high wind, keeps us awake all nght I about the vehicle that comes whirling swiftly around the corner, bespattertig our coat with mad, and even damaging the integrity of oar limbs? about the fellows who smoke on car-platforms, and send their nauseous exhalations into our langs on the pro menadet about those who expectorate without reserve on the sidewalk ? about the rudeness of the crowds on the terry bosts and at the theatres? about ten thousand irritating experiencea-the num ber Is scarcely too large-that every one has to undergo in consequence of public or Srivate heedlessness I We canoot quite devote all oar space to this topic, and a , full list of these evils would require it, a while we have not said a word about the , *little tiinges" that torui-t us in the desehord; so let ihe reader recall all that o undergoes from minor veratious, no tiog the real supremacy of lonslgnioant matters in lit., and join with as in de manding a revolution for their reform. The time is entirely ripe for such a de monstration. We have settled the mat ters of kings and bishops and parliaments 5 and dictators, and so we are not so busy that we cannot give our time and service to a general social upheaval-to the over I throw of incapacity, the deposition of In r f diffetenoe, the punishment of negleet, the Sarrest of recklessness, and the banishment Sof all those selfish habits that prove so Sdestreuctive to the peace and comfort of Sothers in every day affairs. Let as have a general revolution for the purpose of re Sformin little things.-Appletn. i Publicity in Christisan Work. f SIt is a trite remark in matters of every a day life that few men seem able to stand t popularity and fame, and in higher things I it would perhaps be difficult to Pay whether > the fear or praise of man is the greatest f snare. The connsel: "Let not thy left hand know what thy right doeth" is surely I as much needed in these bustling days, as f when first uttered by our Lord, when he B taught his followers so emphatically to Ssound no trumpet before them, and w~en He compared the Church of the new dis Spensatior, not to an "army of banners," but to the mustard seed cast into the ground. SThe four authors of the Gospels have well learnt this lesson of their master. It a might also seem as if they knew by ex Sperience how subtle was the temptation to Sto self-glorification, and were constantly aI careful to avoid any occasion for it, either as regards themselves, or those to whom I they wrote. Would it be possible for us V have better guides as to the way in which we should write of the details of mission a work than the Gospels, and the Acts-so s fall in their simplicity of all that could en s force their lesson-so free from all that r might exalt the creature. r It has often been remarked that even d she whose deed of loving thankfulness - was declared by our Lord himself to be - worthy of being told for an everlasting Smemorial of her, is only spoken of as a D .'certain woman," and this is not a solitary instance. e It is related of Father Taylor, the sailor - missionary of Boston, that on one occasion, - when a minister was urging that the names r of the subscribers to an Institution should s bepublishcd, in order to increase the funds, and quoted the account of the poor widow - and her two mites to justify this trumpet Y sounding, he settled the question by rising I from his seat, and asking in his clear, B shrill voice-"Will the speaker please give I as the name of that poor widow I" t This remark hits the true solution of Sthis question of publicity. The account to which he alluded may seem to warrant Sas in recounting and publishing the Adetails I of Christian labor, in so far as they will t encourage and help others in similar cir cumstances. But it will be found not un necessary to guard carefully against such a reliance on outward help and sympathy, as t may weaken that individual responsibility Sand independence which are so essential; Sand above all, least any echo of theirlabors Scoming hack to scholars, teachere, or work era, should crowd out of the minds of any, ,what should be the constant thought of all Sof us. "Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, Sbut unto thy name be glory." For "we are unprofitable servants, we have done that I wiich it was our duty to do."-London Sifriend. Cardinal Cullen on Catholic Unions. Besides praying, it is desirable to have recourse to other lawful and useful means, in order to promote the welfare of the Church, and the safety of the Supreme Head, and to secure spiritual advantages for ourselves. You can do so by establish ing branches of the Catholic Union in your respective parishes, and assisting that usneeful organization in promoting the reli gious objects for which it has been called into existence. If we unite and co-operate with each other, we shall be able to do much good, and as the objects proposed by the Union are all praiseworthy, and all in fall conformity with the teaching of the Catho lic Church, Catholics, who are really such in principle and practice, will do a merito rious work if they enrol themselves in the Union. Of course, these who are only Catholics in name, who do not ful81fil the duties of good Catholics, or who are not obedient children of the Church, are not invited or expected to join in a work emi nently Catholic. I shall merely add that the parochial branches of the Union, under the direction of the clergy, can do much good by estab lishing societies for the promotion of tem perance, and by inducing their members to sanctify themselves by attending to all religious duties, and especially by tre quenting the Sacrament of Penance and of the Blessed Encharist. Temperance societies thus founded on the solid basis of religion, will contribute very much to check the growth of drunkenness, which is the source of innumerable evils in Ireland. The branch unions may also be made useo ful in founding circulating libraries where they do not exist, or in improving and en larging them where they have been already introduced. * YoL' WII.L BiE WANTED.-Take courage, my lad. What if you are but an humble, obscure apprentice-a poor, neglected or phan-a ecoff and a by-word for the thoughtless and gay, who despise virtue in rags, because of its tatters ? Have you an intelligent mind, untutored though it be ? Have you a virtuous aim, a pure dealre and an honest heart? Depend upon it, some of these days you will be wanted. The time may be long deferred-you may be grown into manhood, and you may even reachyour prime ere the call is made; but virtuous aims, pare desires and honest hearts are too few not to be appreciated not to be wanted. Your virtue shall not always hide you as a mantle-obscurity shall not always vail yon from the molti tode. Be chivalric in your combat with circomstances. Be ever active, however small may be your sphere of action. It will surely enlarge with ever moment, and your inluence will have continued in creaseement. -Exchange.

The first of these displays of which we have a careful and scientiic accounst, Is one that occurred A. D. 1560; but the particulars were not published till ninety years afterwards, when they ap peared in a book called "A Description of Meteors." In 1621 the name of Aurora Borealis was given to this phenomenon, by Gassendi, the French philosopher, on the occasion of a remarkable display visible over a great part of Europe. None seem to have been observed after this till the year 1707; but during the last century it has been by no means uncommon. It occurs generally in the spring or autumn, particularly after a dry year. In the Arctic regions, however, it is the usual accompaniment of a clear winter's night, and is familiar to the inhabitants even of the Shetland Isles. Lights of a similar character have been observed towards the South Pole. Mr. Forrester, in a voyage with Captain Cook, had an opportunity of observing the Aurora Australia, as it has been termed, and thus describes its ap pearance: " It consisted of long columns of a clear white light, shootiag up from the horizon to the eastward almost to the zenith, and gradually spreading over the whole southern part of the sky. These columns were sometimes bent sideways at their opper extremities, and though in most respects similar to the northern lights of our hemisphere, yet differed from them in being always of a whitish color, wbhreas ours assume various tints, especially those of a fiery and purple hue." It is, however, in the northern hemis phere that there havebeen mostopportuni ties of taking minute observations of this phenomenon, and it is from these that we are able to form some idea of the natural operations to which it owes its existence. The flashes of light which constitute the aurora are now generally allowed to be within the region of the terrestrial atmos phere; though they were at one time con sidered to be far beyond it, as it was thought that they could not otherwise be visible at such a height from the horizon, over such an extended area. It would appear, however, that the aurora covers a larger extent of sky than an observer would suppose. All is invisible to him except a certain are with its flaming and streaming off-shoote. Its visibility has, perhaps, some analogy to that of the rain bow, which, as is well known, appears to two observers to be of a different height, their positions requiring the light to be re feoted from different parts of the sky to make the angles of incidence and reflection equal in the case of each. There are circumstances attendingtlhe aaroral pheno mena which may be accepted as proofs of their electric nature. It is supposed that the lights seen are flashes of electricity passing through the higher strata of the at mosphere, which are, of course, highly rarefied; and an experiment whereby a stream of electricity is passed through a glass tube from which the air has been exhausted strengthens this view, appear ances similar to those of the aurora having been noted. The position of the are is observed to bear a remarkable relation to the magnetic pole; it generally lies east and west, hav ing its vertex on the magnetic meridian, but it appears at all times to have the magnetic pole for its centre. The earth corrents of electricity, which often inter fere with the working of electric telegraphs, are most frequent at the time of a display of the aurora; sometimes causing an entire stoppage in the working of the wires un less the electric circuit can, by using double wires, be rendered independent of the earth. The magnetic compass is also affec ted during the display of an aurora, and often in places where the latter is invisible. Sir John Franklin, who made some minute observations In the Arctic regions upon the variations of the needle, which are often so alight as to require microscopic ex amination, stated that the motions were not sudden; but that after an aurors the needle would travel slowly in a certain direction, and as slowly recover its position after several hours. He also remarked that when the arc was not at right angles to the magnetic meridian, but inclined to east or west, the needle deviated towards that end of the are which was nearer to the magnetic pole; after devia tion, it would be assisted in recovering its position if an aurora occurred in a direction opposite to the former. He observed that when the are seemed to be exactly at right angles to the meridian, the needle was gen erally inclined to the west. The prevalence of pink, violet, and blue in the colors of the lights, seems to confirm the probability that they result from a discharge of electricity ; and the noise affirmed by some to have been heard at the time of an aurora display, seems to have resembled somewhat the crackling sound heard when sparks are taken from a Leyden jar, or the con ductor of an electric machine. The hearers have compared it to the sound made by rob bing one piece of silk on another, and to the discharge of firerorks. Some, however, including Captains Parry ano Franklin, have affirmed that they never heard any sound at such times which they could not trace to ordinary terrestrial sources. Although, of course, diffcult to ascertain with certainty, it would seem that these aurors, the borealis and australis, occur simultaneously at their respective poles, and this would point to an electric actien common to both. It has been surmised that on such ocsasions a discharge of elec tricity is taking place from the poles to the equator, and the apparent motion of the asroral are in that direction seems to con firm this view. There are, however, rea aons for thinking that, on thecontrary, the discharge is from the equator to the poles, and that the direction of the motion is only apparent. However this may be, we may presome that in one or other of these places an amount of electricity accumulates from time to time, and that it is periodically discharged into the other through the me dium of the upper atmosphere; or that the atmosphere and the earth form together a galvanoi circle, which is put into action at certain intervals. Bet it is renarkable that though the earth cnrrents would be expected to run north and south, they are frequently observed to move in a direction from east to west. Like many other phen omena, however, this has yet to be fully inv,-stigated by ohs,-rvation and experi ulcr. The meteor.olegy of the earth will, perhaps, be found to be more under the dPAs ionfluence of this electrio action than is at present supposed. -it no doubt performs some important function, and is destined to be as perpetual as the revolaution of the globe itself. Discoveries respecting it will in all probability assist to confirm the theory that heat, motion, and electricIty are essentially one, that they are the origin of many of the phenomena of the earth. AuERICn BsifArrr.-There are two points, says Mackay, in which it is seldom equalled, never excelled-the classic chas teness and delicacy of the features, and the smallness and exquisite symmetry of the ex tremetles. In the latter respect, particu larly, the American ladies are specially fortunate. I have seldom seen one, deli cately broaght up, who had not a fine hand. The feet are also generally very small 'and exquisitely moulded, partica larly those of a Maryland girl; who, well aware of their attractiveness, has a thou sand little coquettish ways of her own of temptingly exhibiting them. That in which the American women are most de ficient in is a roundness of figure. But it is a mistake to suppose that well-rounded forms are not to be found in America. Whilst this is the characteristic of English beauty, it is not so prominent in America. In New England, in the mountainous dis tricts of Pennsylvania and Maryland, and in the central valley of Virginia, the fe male form is, generally speaking, as well rounded and developed as it is here; whilst a New England complexion is in nine cases out of ten a match fgr an Eng glish one. This, however, cannot be said of the American women as a class. They are, in a majority of cases, over delicate and languid; a defect chiefly superinduced by their want of exercise. An English girl will go through as much exercise of a forenoon without dreaming of fatigue, as an American will in a day, and be over come by the exertion. It is also true that American is more evanescent than English beauty, particularly in the south, where it seems to fade ere it has well bloomed. But it is much more lasting in the north and north-east, a remark which will apply to the whole north of the Potomac, and east of the lakes, and I have known instances of Philadelphia beauty as lovely and en during as any that our own hardy climate can produce. A JEST MADE TRuE.-The Swoiss Tmes tells the following story : A foreign creditor went to Liege, France, recently, to look after some of his debtors, and meeting one of them in the street, he observed that he was looking for him, as he thought it high time that the account between them should be settled. "I should be only too glad," replied M. I., " but you cannot draw blood from a stone." " Then," said the creditor, " I shall have recourse to extreme meas ures." " Now I think of it," cried X., " I shall soon receive an important legacy. I will, therefore, give you a bill at three months for the whole amount, and this I promise to meet." "Very well; where shall I find you?" inquired the creditor. " At No. 29, Rne Robermob." The bill having become due a clerk was sent by the creditor to the address given. As No. 29 proved to be the cemetery, the messenger suspected a joke, but, nevertheless, in quired of the porter whether M. X. was within ? " Certainly," replied the man " he lhas been here since yesterday." " I have come about a bill." " A bill upon X i I tell you he was buried yesterday." X. had only intended to play an unworthy trick upon his creditor, but he actually died a little before the expiration of the three months, and therefore ococupied the mournful abode he had named in jest. OUR WEIGHTS.-Somebody who has been " studying our weights " reports that, upon the average, boys at birth weigh a little more, and girls a little less than six pounds and a half. For the first twelve years the two sexes-continue nearly equal in weight, but beyond that time males acquire a de cided preponderance. Thus, young men of 20 average 143 pounds each, while young women of 20 average 120 pounds. Men reach their heaviesat bulk at about 86, when their average is about 152 pounds; but women slowly increase in weight until 50, when their average is about 129 pounds. Taking men and women together, their weight at fall growth, averages about twenty times as heavy as they were on the first day of their existence. Men range from 108 to 220 pounds (the Tibchborne claimant weighs about 360 pounds) and women 88 to 207 pounds. The actual weight of human nature, taking the aver age of all ages and conditiones-nobles, clergy, tinkers, tailors, maidens, boys, girls, and babies, all included-is very nearly one hubondred younds. These figures are given in avoirdupois weight; but the advocates of the superiority of women might make a nice point by introducing the rule that women be weighed by troy weight-like other jewels-and men by avoirdopois. The figures would then stand-young men of twenty, 143 pounds each; young women of 20, 160 pounds, and so on. The Unirere publishes the following ac count ot the really praiseworthy conduct of Madame Bazaine dnrin: the trial of her husband: "It is with pleasure we favor our readers with the true account of the masner in which Madame is Marechale Basaine conducted herself daring her hus band's trial. During the whole time which it lasted she inhabited a convent and attended religious services like a non. Every day she went frem her retirement to the prison of her husband, and when th sentence was passed she remained Arm and tearless. She took her cup of sorrow cour ageonsly acd drank it to the last dregs. On the following day her husband said to her : "I would rather they had condemned me to be shot." Madame Bazaine then gave vent to her grief and cried ont : 'As it is I can live because you are alive; but had they killed you I should have also died.' Madame Baasine is a model for Christain women. Simple, modest, and touchingly pious aod charitable, she knows bow to be gay when gaiety is fitting, and she knows also how to mourn with dignity when grief is near. Out West, where women are running for office, the newspapers whose candidates have been elected no longer place defant roosters at the head of their columns. A I modest hen broods ever the glad tidings of election. Mean spirits under disappointment, like c small beer in a thunder storm, always turn soar. Juwrs SrATrarsca.-There are abeat 7,000,000 Jews living In the world at the present e. Their density is indepen dent of society, religion, or government. There is a Jew to every 446 inhabitantq in England, I in 486 In France,1 in 42 in Russia, 2 in 33 in Austria, 1 in 105 In Ger many 1 in 61 in Turkey, and 1 in about 58 in kurope.

Smith and Brown were talking lately of a young clergyman whose preaching they had heard that day. "What do you thin of him I" asked Brown. "I think," said Smith, "be did better two years ago." "Why, he didn't preach then " "True," said Smith, "that is what I mean..' HOUSE FURNISHING GOODS. FURNITURE....... .........FURNITURE. HUGH FLYNN, 167............
