raw arBL s., rm.rXrA, S-PTM s 30as. 131M ateresting lmall Talk about 01 EngUlish Law yers and ltatesmen. The recent publication of the life of the fa pons English lawyer, BoSrlet, whose fame 1lled that country towards the end of the last kstury and the beginning of this, and who Wam, as an attorney, the peerit not the superior Erskine, Brougham, Lyndburst, eta, gives k-sion for the publication of the following tereeting small-talk conoerning English lwyers and statesmes of that epoch: When Boarlett began practice at sessions, ponrt business was transaoted with a dispatch rhioh contrasts strikingly with the present tate of things. In those days counsel did not nake long speeches. A good example of revity is supplied by Erakine, in an action rought by a gentleman against a lady for orrowed money. After observing that love sm over or out of the question, Etrkine said should simply read the defendant's letter : *ir, when convenient, you shall have our uineas. my ase, said Erekino. "I shall prove the hand rriting." At one time Garrow, leading for he defence in a slander case, pulled out his ratch with, "There, gentlemen of the jury, rithin ten minutes by that watch I will prove o you that my client has spoken nothing but he plain truth." They found for the defence. qually brief was the reply made by Taunton afterward Justice) to Charles Phillips, the rish orator, in an assault case. "My friend'e loquent complaint amounts in plain English o this: that his client has ree ve a good, ound horsewhipping; and my defence is as hort; that he richly deserved it." The in roduction of long speeches on Circuit may be raced to Wilde (Lord Truro). whose example ras strengshened by Crowder (afterward rustice). At the end of one of the latter's re ilies a juryman was overheard reproaching he foreman with having been asleep. "I rarn't, was the indignant rejoinder; "I can land as much of Mr. Crowder as another. I've erved in Berjeast Wilde's time." When Scar itt went on the Northern Cironit, the only in -ance of a speech an hour long was one by _aw (Lord Ellenborougb). but the very first peech Brougham made was three hours and a alf. The fashion, once set, could not be de arted from, clients and attorneys being apt o think that they did not get their money's rorth unless every topic was exhausted. The perating cans- could be inferred from what ook place recently before an eminent Equity edge who had patiently endured a speech rhiob was not ended when the court adjourn d. But the next morning, when the inflio ion recommenced, he quietly addressed the ounsel, "Pray Mr.- , is your client here to ay " "'No, my lord." "Well, then- " He aid no more, but he had said enough. Soarlett's unrivalled dexterity .in the man gement of a jury was not unalloyed with beer trickery. His quiet, friendly, but ex nlsitely crafty method of entering into con ersation with a jury is delineated by the an bor of "Ten Thousand a Year," whose sleek, miling Mr. Subtle can be no other than James ·arlett. The Duke of Wellington said of im, "When Boarlett is addressing a jury there re thirteen jurymen." A more striking ribute to his adroitness was paid by a York. ire juryman, who, being asked after his at dance at the Assizes what he thought of leading counsel, said, "Well, that Lawyer Irougham be a wonderful man; he can talk, e can; but I don't tbink nowt of Lawyer arlett." "How is that ' said his interloou or, "yoe have been giving him all the ver its." "Oh, there's nothing in that," said the oror; "he be so lucky, you see, he be always n the right side." The truth is that the sueo ese of a popular leader in getting verdicts iay be partially accounted for by his being enerally retained for the plaintiff, who is first n the field, and who-such is the result of rofeesional experience in England-is more t :equently in the right. Lord Brougham recounts a notable instance f8carlett's acting in the place of the jury at be critical moment of their beginning to con ider their verdiot. He had defended a gen eman against a charge of an odious descrip ion, and had performed his part with zeal and kill. As soon as the Judge had summed up, he cont sel tied up his papers deliberately. od with a face smiling and serene, rose and aid loud enough to be heard by the jury that e was engaged to dinner, and in so clear a asethere was no need of waiting what most e the certain event, He then retired, bowing >the Court, but one of the Juniors having oo ssion to follow him found that all this confl snee and serenity had never crossed the bresbold, for behind the door stood hid Soar t trembling with anxiety, his face the color his brief. It may be questioned whether an ifice of this kind falls within the limits of itimate advocacy, or whether it be partion ly creditable to the actor. Whatever may be thought of such devices, Is palpable that wit, humor, and sarcasm e not. supeifluous in a jury speech, provided, course, the tendency of counsel's sallies is to ance his cause. This was invariably the e with Erekine. When, for instance, he s defending a man named Bolt, assailed for honesty by the opposing counsel, who inted out that the defendant's very name seigni8cant of evasion-"Gentlemen," re ed Erakine, "my learned friend has taken werrantable bertites with my clieut'a good me. He ii ,o strtkingly ot an opposite t racter that he goes by the na,.e of Blt right." This, we need not say, was pure in ution. Again, in an action against a stage ach proprietor by a gentleman who had suf red from an upset, Erakine began: I eutlemeu of the jury, the defendant is oprietor of the Swan with Two Necks in Lad e, a name emblematic of the number of ioks people ought to possess who travel by s vehicles." Wheh, on the other hand, he defending the proprietors of a stage h in an action brought by the keeper of a ensgerie for the los of a trunk. "Why," 7 ked Erekine. "did the plaintiff not take a P eson from his own sagacioos elephant, and avel with his trunk under his eye t" Perhaps 0 neatest thing, however, aecrlbed to a rkine was net addressed to the jury, but c ivately to the opposing counsel.

Erskine scribbled tee lines on a slip of paper, and threw them u rer to hise learned brother : ti Garrow. forbear ; that toegh old Jade. Will never prove atender made. Finally 8oarlett was promoted to the peerage id seecured a seat in Parliament. Although his rat speech there was creditable he did not e looeed in Parliamnut, and of course he had a 0 leory to aooount for the alleged incompati- s tty of great achievement at the bar and in h SHoose of Commons. Equally of course, too, s' pquotes Burke's statement that "the best u Slawyers bring us in this House is but the a ag of their empty bottles."' The fact Sthat a plenty of lawyers among Soar itt's contemporaries had succeeded both in U arliament and st the bar-Romilly, Dandas, eroeval, Brougham, Lyndhurst, for instance. Y ir William Grant's ability as a parliamentary I ebator may be measured by the anecdote re- ci ted of Fox, who, finding his attention dis- t acted by the conversation of some members ar him while he was listening to Grant, arply turned to them, exclaiming, 'Do you ink it so very pleasant a thing to have to swer a speech like that?" Erekine's oom rative failure-it can only be oalled compa Itive when we remember that his competi ra were Pitt, Fox, Sheridan, Windhaun and a ray-may be accounted for by his peaculiar ai mperament and accidental causes. He was a so snesitive t at he was once confused and put out in an impassioned address to ajlry by ' a yawning attorney plaoed by maliee pro. Spens exactly in bhi line of view under the jory box. On another oooasion, arrested in hie own s despite by the absent or despondlng look of Garrow, who was with bim in a oano, be whisperh, "Who do you think can get on with i that wet blanket of a faoe of yours before him," a There is no doubt that his maiden efort in the H Boose of Commons was marred by the real or affected iadifference of Pitt, who, after listen ing a few moments and taking a note or two r as At intending to reply, dashed pen and paper s on the foor with a contemptuousa aile. Erahioe, it is said, never recovered this ex I preston of disdain. In another semlon Pitt rose after Erskine and began : "I rise to rr ply to the right bonorable gentleman (Fox) who spoke last but one. As for the honorable and learned gentleman who spoke last (Erskine), be did no more than regularly re peat what fell from the gentleman who pro. ceded him, and as regularly weakened what he repeated." Brougham administered a similar snub to Soarlets in the debate on the case of Smith the missionary, where the question torned on a multifarious mass of evidence filling a blue book. Moarlett, with his habitual self-complaceno be a ory, y saying that he had not looked at the evidence before he en tered the Hootse, but that his opinion was clear against the motion. When the time arrived for the reply the mover (Brougham) observed that be would hbarve believed almost any improbability on his learned friend's bare assertion, but that the strange state ment with which he began required some thing more of proof to make it credable. -" And accordingly that proof had been amply provided by his speech, every part of which chowed the strict truth of hie affirmance that he knew nothing of the evidence." A man who saw the partial destruction of the Omaha bridge by a cyclone describes It as a dense black cloud coming down stream, carry ing forward a water column standing on the river with its bead in the clouds. In front the air is filled with hail, streams of fire run along the iron bars and columns of the bridges ; but the moment the whirlwind water column strikes it the whole is lit up by a blinding electric glare, the bridge vanishes, shoots up to a great height above the piers, and then is dashed with inconceivable velocity back into theriver. Large stonesare torn out of the rip rapping, and shoot up perpendicularly slxry feet to the top of the railroad grade. This de soription is regarded by many as fanciful; but Prof. Tice, of St. Louis, says it is not, and adds: "I was charged with laboring under an illusion when, in the summer of 1853, I as serted that the steeple of the Baptist Church first shot up into the cloud. Not until the architect declared that it must have been so. and could not have been otherwise, was the correo'nese of my statement admitted. The architect's opinion was based upon the fact that the steeple, when constrocted, was let down by braces twelve feet long into the tower, and this braced frame was pulled up and out without disturbing a stone in the tow er. The large stone cross in the Calvary Cem etery, weighing several tons, that went down in the North St. Louis tornado last year, went up first, for there was the upright iron dowell that had been in the socket of the shaft. Houses always go down when caught in the vortex of a tornado, but those caught in the centre invariably first go up. When, in the East St. Louis tornado, the cloud snatched up a locomotive, carried it over a pond, and drop. ped It down, right side up, the wise by tradi tion pooh-poobhed at the assertion that it was oarried, and declared that it was blown into the pond, notwithstanding not a trace of such action could be seen in the smooth and level sand over which it moust have rolled if such had been the fact. How did it happen, then. that the tiny electric cloud that was arrested over Langley pond, South Carolina, on the 12th of August, 1674, formed a waterspout, which lasted for about ten minutes, in which time it lifted to the clouds over 214,000 tons of water, and the cloud, immensely enlarged and dis tended, walked off with it without spilling a drop t' THE JINJKISHA IN JAPAN Japan is indebted to an American, if I am correctiy informed, for due of the ourious speo taoclei it presents to strangers. Down to seven years ago the modes of travelling on land were not numerous. You could walk, you could be carried by men, or you could ride on horseback. There were good roads and streets, but no wheeled vehicles, with the ex ception of a few clumsy concerns of snail-like velocity. A sharp-eyed American-I wish I knew his name-invented, in 1869 or 1870, the jin-riki-beh, or man-power carriage. It is, as tts name implies, a vehicle drawn by human arms, and a very good speed does it make. It is like a two-wheeled chaise, newly hatched and just from the shell ,or a baby-cart of more than ordinary proportions. Ordinarily it is drawn by one man, but if the roads are rough or bad and the way long, two and sometimes three men are taken. The carriage is built for one person only, but two individuals, if small and compre1sible, may be crowded into it. The coolieo that draw it are generally power. ful fellows, and seem to enjoy their occupation. They have astonishing endurance, and are capable of a speed that woald wear out a horse. I have made several 'excursions with these carriages, and like them very much. Lost week 1 took a trip into the country in: company with a friend, and we had three men to propel each vehiele. Going down, we stopped several tulnes, and lcitered along, sight seeing, but our return journey of tw..nty three miles was mado in four and a hflf hours, with one halt of fifteen minutes and two stop pages of perhaps three minutes each at way side sprirg" dSince I arrived here a medical friend of wnine at Yokohamna was summoned by telegraph to a place fifty-two miles away. With three men to his jinrikisha he made the journey in twelve and a half hours, including three halts of ten or fifteen minutes each. These carriages are found here by hundreds, yee, by thousands, and are quite as numerous in the cities as cabs in London or Paris. The first used here were made in America, and cost from $100 to $150, delivered here. The Japan ee make them now for much less; a good one can be bought for $30, while $10 or050 will secure something grand. Many individuals and business houses boy their oarrisges, and then hire coolies at $6 per month to draw them, the coolies boarding themselves. For $8 a month you can have at your call, from morn till midnight, a coolie with his own vehicle, or one that he hires and is responsible for. Cheap carriage hire, isn't it ?

BOGY, MISSOUBFS CATHOLIC BENATOL. (St. Louis Messenger) On Thursday morning, 90th lusnet., this distin guished man passed from life into the shadows of Eternity, and before the Jodgment Beat of God. He had been in ill health for months t·ht, but only within the past week were hopes of his reoovery tgiven op. A well-known pub loist, writing of him, says. "There re pro bably not ton men surviving him who have contributed as much to Br. Louis and Missouri as he." This is true, and we feel that Missouri has lost her most prominent and most faithful son. The deceased Senator was of the old school of politicians-honest, outspoken and solid. Most of his life was spent in business and a few years in the public service. Yet in those few years he filled a large space in public life. In privatelife, Col. Bogy was a courteous gentle man, a true friend, a devoted husband and father. He was a sincere and practical Catho lie, outspoken and earnest in his convictions as well on the floor of Congress as in his parish church or in the privacy of his own home. He received all the seoraments of our Holy Churoh on Monday at the hands of P Se, rand submissively re signed his sixty-four years' borden into too hands of his God. Senator Bogy was born in St. Genevieve, on April 9, 1813. He was edoated at the Barrens, in Perry County, hut was prevented by sickness from making a full course. He studied law under Judge Pope, in Kaskaskia, Illinois. On the morning of his departure for Kaskaskia be wrote the following paper, whion is still ex tant: " ST. GONlVsngV, January 16, 1832. On this day I left home, under charge of Mr. William Shannon, an old friend of my father, to go to Kaskaskia to read law in the office of Judge Pope. My education is limited, but with hard study I may overoome it. I am de termined to try ; and my intention is to return to my native btate to pirsettio law if-T oa qualify myself, and, while doing so, to work to become United Statee Senator for my native State and to work for this until I am sixty years old. I will pray God to give me the reso lotion to persevere in this intention. I have communicated this to my mother and given her this paper to keep, so help me GOd. Lawis V. BOGY." He accomplished his purpose to the very letter, having been elected U. S. Senator for Missonri in 1873, a few months before his six tieth birthday. Whilst in Kaskaskia studying law, he was taught Latin by Father Conda mine of that town. In 1835 he was admitted to practice. In 1840 he was sent to the Legis lature. In that and succeeding years he worked hard against Thomas H. Benton. In 1813 he was elected United States Senator, and continued to till the position with distinguish ed ability. He was a credit to Missouri, and hie place cannot well be filled. Relief Withont a Doctor.

In order to enable the Directory to push with renewed vigor the work already so far ac complished to completion. Every facility will be given, on appl!cation at the office, toimpart the information required to convince every one that the sencess of the road is assured as soon as the sum of $575.ts'i is reached, either in sub scriptions to the first mortgage bonds, or to the stock of the Company.

With regard to the flrst'mortgage bonds, no one can doubt their being a first class investment, apart from the collateral advantages which will be derived by the residentsof this oity, and that they will be so regarded by our moneyed institutions, the Company refer to a recommendation made a short time since by the Presi dents of nearlyall cur Banks and Insurance Companies of the second mortgage seven per cent binds of the Company, when such an issue was contemplated. To show the confidenoe felt by these institutions in the proposed road, their eaooere recommend the second mortgage bonds of the Few Orleans Paie Railwsy Company as a "fi Brst-class seven per oent per annanm interest-paying investment," and say "they will be received by their several institutions a security for loeans with as much readiness as any other soven per cent seourity of the State of Louisiaa; they unhoesait tingly commend these bonds for investment." With this inducement, supplemented by the assanr. ances that the Company can obtain all else neceessary to place the entire road in working order when this seemingly small sum shall have been provided for, and further, that instead of second mortgage, first mort gage six per cent bonds are substituted, can any citizlen, who really desires the prosperity of this city, which has been so long retarded by the simple want of proper commun!cation with thealmost inexhaustible resources of Texas, Arkansas and Northern Loluislana, fall to respond promptly to this appeal I E.
