A judicial storm is brewing. The
Judges of our several Courts will hold a
meeting to-day and resolve themselves
into a committee of ways and means,
with a view of investigating and deter
mining the momentous question-how
long they can subsist without meat and
bread? In other words, can they coun
lInue to administer justice without
price? Their salariesp. have not been
paid for six months. When they are
paid, it is in warrants which pass at a
discount of fifty per cent. The judges
havse discoveled that they dannot live
upon air or the honor of their position,
and they will meet to-day to determine
whether they are bound to hold court,
or dole out justice any longer without
compensation. It is a momentous ques
tion to a great many people.-[New Or

A Chinese almanac is a most extraor
dinary publication. The days for plow
ing, building, travelllng and marrying
are laid down in it with the greatest
minuteness. The whole period of four
seasons are divided into twenty-four
solar terms, each possessing some char
acteristic name, and corresponding to
the day on which the sun enters the
first or fifteenth degrees of one of the
twelve signs of the zodiac. As the Chi
nese is a uInar calendar, the places of
these solstices, equinoxes, etc., which
regulate the three great festivals of the
year, are changed every year. There is
also the iutercalculation of the arrears
of the Chinese year of 3534 days, which
in a period of every thirty-two or thirty
three months, amount to a great month
of thirty days , which is accordingly in
troduced, every two or three years, in
such a way as to preserve the order of
these twenty-four periods.
A LABOR OF Lo'VE.-A California
story tells of a man who resolved to quit
drinking, and went to a notary to get
him to draw up an affldavit to that effect.
The document was drawn, read and
proved; the party held up his hand and
murmured the usual "s'elp me." It was
promptly sealed and delivered.
"What's to pay?" asked the pledger.
"To pay-to pay!" exclaimed the no
tary, "nothing, of course; that is a labor
of love."
"Nothing to pay!" exclaimed the grate
ful, but very forgetful afflant. You're
a brick. Let's take a drink."
Columbia Phsuenix says: The list of del
egates stands 03 negroes to 34 whites.
In three or four districts the delegates
are all black, and in many others there
are three or four of that color to one

rant, brutal, field hands, and will go to
the extremest lengths of diabolicalism
that their bedatly passions and the wick
ed suggestions of the fiends who control
them suggest.

TEn GAAtE oF EUCUIRI.-A friend
who has been spending a year in Eng
land, informs as that the John Bulls
have become much addicted to the
American game of "Euchre," of late,
and who have made some improvements
upon the Americau game, a description
of whiflh, no doubt, will be interesting
to Euchre players.
For example, with every pack of play
ing cards sold there is onle blank card at
the top of the deck, used in this Coun
try frequently as a "marker." But the
English make a better use of this white
faced card. They include it in the suits,
making 53 to the deok, instead of 52;
and to the euchre deck 29 instead of 28
cards. This blank card at first was
called "Louis Napoleon.," but has been
subsequently eo rupted into the less em
phonions title of "yerker." The yerker
then is the highest ranking card in the I
euchre deck, having capacity to capture
either of the "boeers" or the ace, so
that a man may be euohered with the
ace and two "bowers." Whenever the
"yeroker" is tuned up by the dealer,
that person has the privilege of "mak
ing the trump," and can "make it to the
most advantageous suit in his "hand."
The game is a novel one, and, we under
stand, affords much diversion to the
playeras.--asNriUe Baascr.

The followinlg aphorisms on. love are
oommunicated to the Galaxy:
WoVnen like men who flatter them;
but love those who despise them. Every
-n&n, iby, the general law, loves all wo
nuent~t wome .loves one man. Men
are by nature polygamists; women, mo.
nogatnists. Magnificent lovers make
wretched husbands, and excellent hus.
bands the worst of lovers. Women be.
come attached to0 men not for what men
do for them, bpt what they do for men.
Gratitude payes the way to their esteem,
but selfshness opens the way to their
love .The smallest: tenderness out
weighs with'.a woman the greatest sac
rifee. She will forget the hero who
w.ould die in her behalf, for the mere
gallant who would give her caresses,
sud nothing more. When women's
hearts are touched tha- are all kindred.
The merest dowdy then becomes the
sister of the proudest duchess. Women
desire to love, primarily, and men to be
loved; hence, women idealize and men
analize, the objects of their affection.
If a woman will not love you, make her
hate you, and she is half yours; for hate
is too unnatural to her to last, and its
first rebound is tenderness, and the so
cond passion. Men never love women
whbomthey do not, and women never
love menou whom they do, unhdrtsand.
"'Forever," in the rhetoric of a woman's
affection, is a sentimental hyperbole
meaning a period of exactly two months.
How SooN FORGOTTEN.--So lately
dead! So soon forgotten! 'Tis the way
of the world. Men take us by the hand
and are anxious about the health of our
bodies, and laugh at our jokes, and we
really think, like the fly on the wheel,
that we have something to do with the
turning of the earth. Some day we die
and are buried.. The sun does not stop
for our funeral; everything goes on as
usual; we are not missed in the streets;
one or two hearts feel the wound of af
diction; one or two memoiries still hold
our itames and forms; but the crowd
moves in its daily circle, and. in three
ieays, the great wave of time sweeps
over our steps, and washes out the last
:estige of our lives.

A HORRIBLE CnOmAT.-There is no
telling the ways that men, greedy for
gain, will not avail themselves of to ad
vance their fortunes, especially during
nd since the war, as men have been
ounid willing and anxious to sell soul
and conscience for a httle tilthy lucre.
A few days since an incideat occurred
which very forcibly illustrates this. An
rishmnan was employed to dig up and
emove some of the bodies of Union
soldiers in the Wealeyan cemetery of
this city. In lifting the coflins he thought
they seemed unusually hollow in their
maond, and opening some of them dis
-overed that no bodies had ever behen
placed i. them at all, nothing but planks
or square blocks of wood. The mystery
to the honest Hibernian was great, but
swhen it was told him that the Union
soldiers were buried by contract, the
ndertakers receiving so much per cof
in, and then that the bodies could be
sad at a handsome proft to some med
al college, the doubt was at once re.
moved, and the avenue to a wealth

his bed in the first diitch or filthy corner

grunting way for a little more to drink.
The fourth is puppy drunk. He will

and hug you in his arms, and kiss you

much he loves you. You are the best
man be ever saw, and he will lay downl
his money or his life for you.
The fifth is owl drunk. He is wise in
his own conceit. NTo man must differ
with him, for his word is law. He is
true in politics, and all matter must be
taken as authority. His arm is the
strongest, his voice is the sweetest, his
horse is the fastest, his turnips the lar

fox-drunkman. Lie is crafty, ready to
trade horses and cheat if be can. Keen

cunning, peeping through cracks, listen

that they should be passed in phlnting

fleeing from all those pleasures which
lay up bitterness and sorrow for the time
to come! Take good care of thie first

against it by 17,000 majority.
In O)hio there are 1,171.720 white and
only 18,442 black males; in Kansas the
I,'opoaltiou is 58,852 white to 286 black;
in Minuesota, 91 S04 white to 126 black;
in New Jersey, 322,183 white to 12,312
black. This is from the census of 1860,
