Two Methodist clergymen were riding to the district 2?ilferny trough a re tired portion of Canada; One wag a ven erable brother, the other a young man just installed in the work of the gospel. An they passed an old oross-roads tavern, the elder brother pointed toward it with his whip, and said: " Mao; and many a day I've been at that tavern, and a mighty handsome wife the keeper had, too. She was one of the handsomest women I ever saw, young, pretty, plump, fine oolor, and such arms. Many and many a kiss I have given her when we were sitting in a big haircloth chair in the little private sitting room off the bar. Well, well, time flies" and the good old man gazed at his companion, whose eyes were as large as soap plates, then blush ing of a deep beet-red he said with some confusion: "Bless me, what havo I been saying? 01 course brother, you will not breathe a word of this; I oannot im agine how I oame to say anything about it, but then the tongue is," etc. The young olergymnn gave the required pledge, and repeated it when ut ttie end of their drive the old man besought him earnestly to remember and not breathe a word of the matter. But during the afternoon the young minister arose in the conference, and declaring that his conscienoe would not longer allow him to bear the burden he had imposed npon it, and that be must tell the tmtb, no matter how terrible the consequenoes, informed the astonished brethren that Brother had that day admitted that he had been guilty of improper and un christian oonduot toward a married woman nay, more, had reoited bis sin with an unotion which showed that it had never been severely repented of. It is needless to say that everybody first stared at the speaker and then at the ao oused minister, who for a hundred miles around had won cn enviable reputation for uprightness and purity. The aoouBed baried his faos in bis hands, aad the chairman desired the young brother to repeat his btartling aeousation, with de tails. The yonng clergyman did so, and when ho staled that the other mem' ber i the " guilty pair ' was a woman whose nnmo be did not know, but whose husband kept a tavern rt Corners, wis electrified to bear tbe Chairman bawl, "Hal ha! ha !" and every mem ber of the conference go off in parol ysms of laughter. "Can you is it pos sible you oanBmile at auoh arevelation?" said the dumbfounded young minister; and as soon as the chairman bad suffloi ently mastered his emotion to speak he said, " My dear young brother, before Brother was converted and entered tbe ministry he kept that tavern!" There after that young minister was loss zeal ous and infinitely more disoreet. The New York World estimates the debts of tbe American people, inoluding the debts of tbe National Government, of tbe several States, counties, corpora tions, companies and individuals, at $20,000,000,000. Of coarse this is ap proximate, and if oorreot in point of fast, it is not so in effect, as a large portion of public and private indebtedness is offset by credits. Tbe nation and nearly all of tha States, most of the oitiea and many of tbe oounties, have sicking funds to partially meet their liabilities. Tbe debts of oities are sometimes given in the total and some times with tbe sink lug fund deduoted. Corporations and individuals, may owe large sums and have larger ones due them. The World's figures are therefore, little more than reminder that as a people wo are some' what heavily in debt. Hometimes tbe servioes of a oivil en gineer are aheap at twioa the money.

XVII. SoOTHEBN CTANIUBD3. In MarOh, J 1861, the confederate congress adopted the so-called stars and bars flag, com- pcs?d of three horizontal ban of equal wdith, tbe middle one white, the other red, wiih a blue union containing nlao stars in white, arranged in a oirole. Tbe resemblanae of this to the stars and stripes often led to oonfusion, and in September of that year a battle-flag waa adopted, whiob had a red field charged with a blue saltier with a narrow border of white, on which were displayed thir teen white stars. In 1863 the "stars and bars" flag was supplanted by a flag witi. a white field, having the battle-flag for union. This flag was found tc be deficient ip service, it being liable to be mistaken for a flag of truce, nd Febru ary 4, 18G5, the other half of the field beyond tbe union was covered with a vertioa! red bear. This was tbe last flag of tbe oonfederaoy. jIai Adelkb on Monkeys. The mon keys seem to amuse the people most. I like a monkey myself. Do you know I believe it's a positive loss to human be ings that they haven't got tails like monkeys? Why a monkey can take bold of anytbiug with bis tail just like you can with your hand. It's really third band. JNow s posen you bad mob a tail? If you had to hang on to a plat form of a crowded horse-car with your hands you could hold your umbrella with your tail If you were walking up and down ttai room at night with the baby, you oould carry bim with your arms and give bim a spoonful of paregorio with your tail, If you wanted to take your family cut airing yon oould grab a child with each band and pull the baby-ooaoh with your tail. I tell yon, sir, it s a dead loss to you that you're not built like a monkey. A rare sight was witnessed on the beaoh yesterday. For several hundred feet tbe surf was a perfeot black mass of young fish (anohovies probably) . They extend ed out about fifty feet from the edge of the surf, end appeared to be guarded by a line of larger fish, among whiob a turmoil would oaoaaioBally occur, as others of a different sort made an attack on the flank of the cloud of small fry. Tbe same phenomenon was visible on Sunday afternoon. They seemed to drift down the ooast with the tide, and wilt doubtless return when the tide rises again. Sun dry small boys made several attempts to oapture some of them in nets, but they failed every time. Tbe fish were so thiek that tbe waves oould not break on the beach. Santa Barbara (Cal.)
