' . ; Statistics prove tbatOOJ percent of nil inlutits are horn after candle light anil before dtuvti. liy the ci-eater n limber are born between 1 (ind 2 o'clock ii.ui. It is calculated that a inan'ttiiliawcK of being horn betw een 1 and 2 o'clock, rat her t han at an earlier or Inter hour, are at least seven to one, w hile the chance of being liorii iu the daytime, is so small that no one need feel ntiy auxiety about it.' The truly scien tific mind cannot contemplate, tlris state ot things without an intense desire to know thu reason of it. S.ierates might have cast some light upon the-subject, had it not lieen for an untimely interruption. In tho Xyillth book of the ' Mo- moraoiiia" no is represented as having saito Alcibiades: "Now, I will ask you, )! Alcibiades, why you were born tit J:-L5 a.m., as. 1 am told that yon were I" Without wait ing for a reply lor the sage alwavs answered his own questions, in order to iimke sure that the answers and questions would fit nicely to gether Soerotes proceeded to say: "The Father of the (JoiLs lias willed that all men should eome into the world at night, so that Apollo, be ing iihsent" But just at this mo mentZuutippe sneeiingly remarked from the ton of the stairs, 4 What are you giving us t What, by Zeus, do you know about infants f" and other language to that effect, which put an end to the discussion. - It is evident, however, that the philoso pher had his theory concerning the matter, and if he had been permit ted to unfold it, he might have solved the problem. To come down to later times, Mr. Darwin confidently asserts that, infants are born at night becaviSe their fathers me nearly always at- home at that time, and are hence ready to be scut on tbc usual and necessary errand. This is all very well, but it assumes a skill in the calculation of times and seasons, and a degree of reasoiiinc newer which it is very improbable that infants possess. Indeed, it is less plausible than the theory held by the Shakers, that infants are a etirso, iinu tuat they arrive at un seemly hours in order to inflict the greatest possible anioulit of sulfer ing on mankind. When we com pare these weak and doubtful tlieo-: tes with the truly scieutilto ex planation of a learned physician and philosopher residing iji.aWest-. ern city, we shall at once perceive their great inferiority. The philosopher in question has decided in his own mind .that man is intended to be a nocturnal animal. He argues thateluek-ens tire hatched iu the daytime, and always dccp tit night, and that hence infants which ire born at niciit ought to sleep luring the daw lie points out that men who do the most good in the world such as journalists and doctors are always working at night, while bank presidents and cashiers ply their immoral trade ind altar their books between 10 ind 3 o'clock iu the day. The sun. he claims, is intended merely as a heater, nnd its light is really use less. Tho eye of man needs only little training iu order to enable him to see clearly in the darkest night ami without the aid ot any light whatever. IJy training the ye to see in darkness, we shall be ible to dispense entirely with cas. kerosene, and caudles, and will thus lessen the cost of living, Fi nally, he makes a stronir point con- crning cats, which now keep us unpleasantly awake tit night, whereas, if wo were strictly noc turnal in our habits, we should sleep only during the day, when cats have ceased from howling mid boot jacks are at rest. Unlike many philosopheis, this excellent old gentleman practices what he preaches, and he no sooner formulated the theory that man is meant to be nocturnal, than he be gan to train his eyes to see in the dark. ' At first he used a lamp giving a fair quantity of light, but by degrees lie slowly decreased the light by turning down the wick. In two weeks' time he was able to distinguish objects in a dim twi light almost as plainly as he could formerly have distinguished them at noon, and iu the course of three months ho could give odds to the ablest cat iu perceiving things iu lhe darkest midnight cellar. His where, although he could not bo seen, be could plainly see every thing around him. llu would then test the accuracy of his vision by remarking : "Julia, yon have your head on Mr, Smith's left shoulder,' and lie. has just kissed you;" or, "Mary, Mr. Thompson has his arm around your neck, and I think his neck-tie is untied. I 'lease mention if 1 am right." These and similar remarks were made solely iu pur suance ol his plan of tiaining his eye-sight, and w ithout the slightest intention of nnnnving the young lcoplu; but the latter were horribly avenged. No matter how low the gas might be, the ghl gentleman could always see just how things in the parlor were situated. Xo young man's nerves could be ex pected to stand this stort of strain, and iu the course ot three months. Julia und Mary had seen themselves abandoned by half a dozen lovers eeeh. JiaturnlJy, tlti could not lie permitted to goon. The girls were excellent daughters, clear-headed, well-beha.vcd and affectionate, but they felt that their duty to their sex required uie suppression ot a kind ot father w ho could see iu the dark. Accordingly, they had lhe philosopher arrested as a lunatic w ho fancied that he could see in the dark, and had him eon lined iu an asylum, where he still remains, a:id probably will remain until the girls aie married. llismist'ortuue,however, does not upset ins theory. He has proved that niiiu was intended to be a noe turual animal, and has thus fully accounted for the fact that infants are, born iu the night unless, in deed, his alleged experiments never wore made, and he is really a lunatic, as his duughtersassert that he is. Kxperience of a Liquor Seller. The " reformed clown," Jos. P. English, gave in his experience in New York city a few days ago, from which we extract the following: "I went to l'oughkeepsie and opened a 'gin mill' and lager beer saloon, where I ang ami told funny stories. My wife thought it was a restaurant and nothing but eating and drinking iu it. 1 didn't tell her what it was. 1 thought liquor sell ing was all right. I had a good mural character the government declared I had. If i wanted to go to see the crowned heads of Europe, all l need to do is to show them my .liqiior-liceiiiie. - . 'One day a. customer who spent much money at my bar e.ainu in half drunk. While he wasstanding there a little girl entered with a Pen I'ctuiTK of Members of Press. the pail. She wanted a quart of lager. When 1 gave it to her she turned to the man, pulled his sleeve, and said, 'I'a, come home. Mother said she would get you this beer if you would only come home to drink it.' The drunken brute snarled out, 'Get home, or I'll break your back.' I had been to a temperance meeting the night before. All in a moment it flashed upon me that I was the man who was making this father a sot. I "said, 'I have sold my hist glass of rum or lager.' 1 signed t he pledge, and I have done my best for temperance. .Ex. The Musical Phonograph. Professor Johnson lately ex-1 hibitcd in this city a new instru ment supplied by Mr. Edison, which reproduced Levy's " Last Hose ot summer,' uie "t.arnivni or Ve nice," etc.. Every ear was on the alert to listen to the performance of the phonograph. Levy came in front ot the mysterious thing, and blew a blast on his bugle horn strong enough, it would seem, to blow the whole concern out of ex istcuce, und when he fu',sidod Professor Johnson reversed the crank, affixed a sort of horn to a disk ou the cylinder, and ut came all of Levy's music, with all its variations, to the hint note. The wonderment nnd delight of the audience were great in the extreme, and they applauded the articulating phonograph us if it were a living and bieathiiig thing. When Miss Cole sang to it "Comin' thro' the U.ye," there was intense curiosity to hear how it would be returned, as her voice has a birdlike quality in tho upper register that it was thought impossible lor the phono graph to counterfeit. When Pro fessor Johnson turned the crank James A. Stevens, of the Colum bus Independent, with the figure of a beau pole, the mind of a Webster, the eye of an eagle and the pen of a ready writer, gives the following pen portrait of a number of gentle men he met at the late press con vention : Having unexpectedly and at ' a Into hour roralled a delinquent subscriber, and effected a temporary compromise with the ebony duchess w ho superintends the lauudrvingof our wardrobe, the editor last week attended the annual gathering of the editors ut " tho historic city" of Vicksburg. As one is often asked the object of these: reunions, we will here say for the benefit of those who do not know, but may feel some Interest in the matter, that they are made up of about one part of busiuess to four parts of pleature and recreirtioir, ' dashed with u mild sprinkling of " mutual admiration." H1K KOOSTKHS. Enteiitg a city any larger than Columbus always did make i s ieel like a count ty cracker, and the hotel and hack drivers never fail to find it out, but to drop into a crowd of Mississippi editors is to make us ut, home, even iu the moon, and so it w as on this occasion. There was Kupert BarUsdale, of tho Clarion; Walpole, of the Kosciusko Mat; one of nature's noblemen ; Piince Holland, of the Holly Springs Re porter, a marvel of social magnet ism ; rosy Frantz, of the llraiidou Republican, without whose presence a press convention is incomplete a very combination of JJal, bir John and Eardolpb. with the mean left out ; P. hi. Mayers, of the Pas cagoula DKMOcitAT-Si'An, the nc knowledged wag of the "powerful minds," :i charter member, a suc cessful publisher, well dressed, well fed, und always utanding by the Constitution. Then we cannot for get Col. Power, of the Clarion, the embodiment of prue-tical good sense and usefulness ; Col. J. L. McCul- lum, -f the Yazoo Democrat, the Addison of the crowd, and the most kin "lv in nimeai ance : I, nc e iTcorirp Harper, .of the Hinds County (la- zettc, the Horace Greeley of the Mississippi press iu looks, wisdom and experience, spectacled, good natured and kind; the impetuous ANOTHER NATURAL WON DERER. ,".

He had become thoroughly noc turnal, and he set to work to w-rite a profound treatise upon the duty of " N'octurnalisui." Had not the learned philosopher possessed two daughters of much personal beauty ami great decision of char.ioter, that book might have been finished, and the author might be still a free iuhI happy uisn. Of course, the girls had their admirers, w ho came to see them in the even ings, aud were very thoughtful and prudent in saving gas. One pair of lovers always occupied the front parlor, while the other jiair held the Lack parlor. The venerable phi losopher, who had a coul insensible to the tender passion, deliberately used the four lovers in a series of experiments. He- was Noriistomed to steal softly into the parlors, trills imitated by the insensible piece of machinery before her. Of course the song ot the phonograph was nothing to that of Miss Cole, because the voice was metallic and without the attributes of flesh and blood, but its close rendition of the words aud accent was really mar velous to bear.

A special to thu C.nciiinati Commercial from Glasgow Junction, Ivy., June 21, says: Another wonderful oave was recently discovered near fhistowii. It has already been exp'lirred for a distance of twenty-three miles iu one direction, culled tho.long route, und sixteen piilys in another direc tion, called the. short route. Tho avenues arc very wide. A span of horses can easily bedriVeu through for a distance ol eleven miles. Three rivers, wide ami. very deep, are encoivjtered on the iong route; one of them is navigable tor four teen miles, until the passes become Tod narrow to u'd mil a boat. This forms' the third or river route, which has to be explored iu a boat. The cave is wonderful i beyond description, and. tar surpasses in grandeur the Mammoth or any cave ever before discovered. Several mummified remains have been dis covered iu one of the large rooms. They were reposing in stone'coftins, rudely constructed, and from ap pearances may have been in this eavo for centuries. They present every appearance of the Egyptian mummies. Great eKoitement pre vails over this important di'steorerv.
