A 7l1T(.OTOMLNION SKETCR. Count Sckolinek,, a Polish noble, had aken part in one of the last insurrections u f Poland. Beaten, and made prisoner, he e as soon condemned to death. Heo had a 0 ife, and a son ten years old, whose name ti as Stanislane. At the terriblenews that sI or husband was about to die, the Coun- o0 esg, overwhelmne with grief takes her ai hild by the hand, and, retiring to her ora- IC ry, kneels with him before a statue of T or Lady of 8orrows. "Blessed Virgin a ary !" exclaims she, in a voice broken ci ith emotion, "pray for us! protect us ! P ve us restore a husband to his wife, ae her to his child I Thou oughtest to take a ty on our tears, thou whom none have al er invoked in vain I-thou who lovest so nderly thy Divine Son I-thou who hast 1' suffered so much I" Soon after, Stan- t and his mother rose from their o er. A secret hope has calmed their c The Countess, escorted by a man- hi srsat ud accompanied by her son,leaves fe eo oase and repairs to the prison where e Count was detained. By the help of a few t ieces of gold, slipped into the jailor's hi and, she succeeded in obtaining admis- hF on into the dreary dungeon. What took lace during the agonsaing interviewis not wen us to tell. But, three quarters of an tur afterwards, the unfortunate Countess, H iding her tears in her handkerchief, with Ci or face further concealed under the im- th ense bonnet she had adopted for the oo- th ion, and her figure bowed down with rrow, passed again before the jailor, rawing along with her by her side, her eeping child. The cell of the condemned an not.reopened until the night. The ch or then made his inspection; on doing he uttered a loud cry, called for help, p d vociferated treason. " * * In the of the man condemned to death he Seldthe Countess, his wife ! " * nt Sckolinski had escaped, taking with -tanislaueos.

We love you, and we pity you Sstill more.n" The day appointed for the First Comm. alon was approacshing. Stanislana bad not mentioned his letter to either his father or his masters; he bad spoken much about it to God; he had counted the days and the boars; he bad said to himself, " Beforemy First Communion, I will make a novena to the Blessed Virgin ; I will so time it that it shall finish just as I am about to receive absolution, and I will pray so hard and so well that our Blessed Liºdy will be obliged to give me back my mother." Tie eve of the" great day "had arrived. According to pionus custom, the parents of the children had been requested to come and give their sons the blessing they de sired. Count Sckolinski came with the others. Statislaus ran to him and embraced him; then devoutly kneeling, he received the paternal benediction. " I have now your blessing," said the child, '" but I hope also to have my mo ther's." The father said nothing. "You know mamma is to come back," continued Stanislaus. The Count only sighed. " I want her to be present at my First Communion and she will be there. And now I must tell you all about it, father dear. Do you see, I have made a novena to the Blessed Virgin-it finishes at five o'clock ; I shall go to confession and receive absolution at four ; then I shall be as pure as the angels, and I will entreat the Mother of our good God to give me back my mother this evening or at least to-mor row without fail." "' Ah I" sighed the Count interrupting, and trying to smile ; but being unable any longer to endure the conversation, he went away. It was five o'clock in the evening; Stan eilaus was going to the poitei'e !o ig, when be was met by one of the priests beiungieg to the house. " Where are you going, child t" " To see if anybody has called for me." " But your father came this morning." " Ah, sir, I am expecting some one else; I expected mamma." " But your mother is vot in Paris." " She is coming back, I am sure." " My dear child, I quite understand your desire and your prayers, but let as have no distractions to-night; my dear boy, the hour for receiving visitors is gone by; so return to your companions." The novena was finished, and the child imagined that the proper thing for the Queen of Heaven to do was to give him back his mother there and then. Not to go to the porter was therefore an im mense sacrifice; he made it however gen. erously. " After all," he said to himself, " when my mother arrives she will ask for me." Sx o'clock strikes, then seven, then eight, " * * " no one. Supper is over, and all the boys are preparing to go to theirirdormitories. S:anialauswas a little discouraged. " " *While all this wasgoing on, a woman, badly dessed,' looking worn and haggard, had entered the porter's lodge and asked to see young Sckolinski. The porter, taking her to be an impostor, and being, moreover, suspicious on ac count of the lateness of the hour, refused point-blank to call the child. At last how ever, overcome by her importunity, he con sented to allow to the Countess (for it was I she) to go to the window, and just look at the pupils as they crossed the yard. Stan islaus, who still hoped for his mother's re turn, stepped a little out of the ranks to I cast up a glance at the porter's lodge. The mother had only time to exclaim: " There he is-there I there !" and uttering a cry, fell fainting. But how did the Countesearrivejust at the time appointed by the child She I had escaped from the men who were taking f her to Siberia; she had fled towards t France, and in disguise, without resources, without money, she had reached Paris. f Where was she to go in this vast city I Happily, in his letter to Peter, which the I Countess had received, Stanislaus had put the address of his school; and thus it was the Countess had gone straight to her son. The next day the Count and Countess r Sckolinski, reunited, happy and transport-t ed with joy, were present together at the d First Communion of Stanislaus, their only child.--1r. Y. Freeman's Journal. d PUBLIC CHARACTERS AT WASHINGTON. a PROCTOR KNOTT. a Proctor Knott, of Kentucky, is one of the score of men in the present House of Rep resentatives who have a national reputa tion. He is supposed to be the great hu morist of the body, and is commonly allu- t ded to as the funny Chairman of the Judi ciary Committee. It may look like an af- t fectation for putting paradoxes to say so; but I am free to confess that I never saw a more matter-of-fact, serious person in my c life. I had a preconceived notion of him ° as a tall, dashing young Kentuckian, with 8 a fine voice, fiery manner,exuberant imag t ination and unlimited control of language; d the reality is a strange contrast to the pic ture drawn by the fancy. Proctor Knott p is a very common-place, oldish looking 0 man, who wears plain clothes, uses plain language, and draws as little public atten tion to himself as any one occunpying his place can. He is rather below the middle size, has abundant gray hair and a small F gray mustache, which lacks the elegant a droop of Fernando Wood'e. His eyes are c not good, and indeed the only remarkable feature about him is his forehead, which is very broad and full, appeal ingactually much wider than any other part of the face. It g is not very high, but indicates intellect. r Thus far in the session the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee hasspoken main ly on business topics, and spoken like a p• business man. He has made no attempt at w oratory, asimply answering questions or Is making explanations, as if he possessed no a] suech faculty as imagination and was ut- c, terly devoid of the sense of humor. His w voice is not very strong, and his style of te delivery is unpretentious, so that he might d be set down as one of the driest and dul- t lest members of the House were it not for It the brevity and conciseness which charac- tc terize his remarks. In this hie constantly al betrays his first rate capacity as a lawyer. si Mr. Knott made his reputation as a wit .1 by his speech on Duloth, which is familiar he to every schoolboy in the country. It was al delivered while he was a member of the re Forty-second Congress, late one afternoon, hi when matters were unusually dull, and it H made an immediate bit. The members dl orowded about him to listen, the news- Ii i-spotters wore eapivd, ad thel ta -Swb wa* mE on say that in tone and gesture the speaks made his delivery set off the discourse .- Hsa argument on the national debt, wbicl ad presents the extent of it, illustrated b, er every possible whimsical method, wasi at a more masterly production, but is not -s be popular. The Kentuckian's humor is no y an ever flowing tountain. It is a matter o to thought, elaboration and study, and ths at disposition which prompts him to exercise e it comes but rarely. This Is true of hi, so private as well as his public life; anc id those who know him intimately can onlj recall rare instances In which they have d. enjoyed the play of his imagination. He of must therefore be set down as one of those e sad and melancholy wits of whoen. liters. e. tore has said so mi:ch; and there was no. . thing incongruous in the appointment ul himl to the Chairmauship of the Judiciary , Committee, which struck the people at first as a sort of farce. It would be diM e cuolt to find a more painstaking, methodical man. He seems so' by nature rather than from policy ; and the spirit of fun fnds ex pression in the use of the pencil rather than n the tongue or pen, for he is one of the most 9 skilful caricaturists in the country, rivalled it by only one or two of the leading profes ie sional artists. it It is to be regretted that Knott, having Ie the faculty of humor, should not make more frequent use of it-not merely because d the proceedings of Congrese are so dull e thatit would be a public benefector who e would ealiven them, but because humor is k such a powerful weapon in the hands of one skilled in its management. It is a rare gift, and those who possess it seem in some measure ashamed of the endowment, and y arealways straining after a reputation for t solid learning or respectable dulness. They fling aside the rapier which they can handle with perfect mastery, to grasp a clumsy mace which they cannot swing. It g is hard to understand why men who have wit consider it a kind of weakness, when they cannot but perceive what an element ,, of strength it is in such a mind as Shakes peare's, and when their own experience teaches them its potency among men. Even in the gravest assemblage the audi ence becomes alert and attentive when a man of humor rises to speak, and his origi nal and whimsical presentation of argu ments gives them a force which vehemence and brilliant rhetoric cannot bestow. In Congress we often hear quick repartees, ill-natured sneers and intense irony; but that playful, fanciful ridicule, which comes into a fierce debate like a cool shower on a hoteummer's day, is as infrequent as the blossoming of an aloe. There are dozens of Representatives who can make an elo quentepeech, but only two or three who can make a witty one; and as scarcity is an elemept of commercial value, wit is consequebtly m.re precious than eloquence. Only those who have sat for hours listening to overstrained voices, overstrained bursts of passion, overstrained arguments, c in appieciate the relief which it cool, airy, humorous eveech affolds. The great ne cret of Sam Cox's power lies in his hun:or, and the fact that he cannot help giving way to it. If he could restrain his pro pensity for fun he would doubtless be as heavy and as ineffective as his neighbors ; but his whimsicalities break out in spite of him, and when he rises the House becomes hushed and men yield to ridicule who had steeled themselves against invective. Itis the old fable over again : The sun and the wind contended as to which was the more powerful and tested the matter by attempt ing to take away the traveller's cloak. The wind howled fiercely about him and snatched at the corners of the garment and tugged at its folds, but the more it bluster ed the more closely the traveller wrapped himself up; the sun shone out warmly and he cast aside the cloak as useless in the genial heat. No better illustration of the force of humor could be asked than was af forded on the debate on the Consular and Diplomatic Appropriation bill. The Re publicans who had been stoutly contending against is provisions as enforced by the appeals of Holman, Singleton, and others for economy, actually gave way under the rollicking ridicule with which Cox held up the services of Read leading the country - dance with the Qieen of Greece and the Consul at Tripoli defending the national honor against the soldier who wanted a drink out of his well. They grew ashamed of the cause which had been so laughed at, and only two of them voted in the opposi tion to the measure which many had made speeches against. The moral of all this is that humor is a faculty to be encouraged, not repressed. EXTORTION AT THE CENTENNIAL -Ex tortion on the part of the restaurants on the Centennial ground is already attracting the attention of the Dress. The New York Tribune puts the French restaurant, the " Trois Freres," as conspicuous in this course. A late letter of its correspondent says: ' A distinguished member of Con gress, with a party of friends, took a light lunch there. There were five of them and they drank no wine. The bill was twelve dollars. Two bunches of lettuce, that cost perhaps three cents apiece, were charged one dollar. APhiladelphia journalist went with a lady to this temple of high living and paid four dollars for a very small chicken, a little bread and butter, and a bottle of claret that would have ranked in France as vin ordinaire, and been included in the menu without charge. A New Yorker went in and, astonuded at the charge of ninty-five cents for a cup of colf fee and two cakes, refused positively to pay. After a conesultation between the garcon and the restaurateur the bill was reduced to thirty five cents." A FEARFUL SITUATION.-A lady of this place says the Whitehall (New York) ~imes, was quietly sitting at her sewing, one day last week, when she observed a neighbor approaching the house whom she did not care to see. She quickly dropped her work, and stepped into a closet, so as not to be "at home" to her caller. The closet door closed with a spring and imprisoned the lady. The caller, finding the lady ab sent, did not stop, but when the lady tried to open the door she discovered. alas ! that she was a prisoner. The lady realized that she was consuming the air very fast, yet she was powerless to release herself from her prison. She remainedl in the closet about four hours, and when her husband returned home at Supper time, he missed his wife, but thought nothing about it. Having occasion to look into the closet, be discovered his wife lying inbensble on the floor. He quickly drew her llnanimate form out, woen the air revived her, and -.s i s pseesets wihs a Lw he, e a. MISCELLAINEOUS.
