To show that the Cru, cent is improving is the tone of its preos, we have merly to say, that they now present, for every day as well as Sunday reading, such ele. gant matter as we may well ooo ceive to appear under the follow. ing heads : *'lighway Murder in Jefferson City-an Unknown Man Killed and Robbed."

Tan Frmo or KnaveMs.-In ille. tration of a positk. neasumed in this paper the day before yesterday, We and the following in thl coel sines of lat excellent newspaper, the New York l)hlrAsCmrn ! In this great city there are many thousnes of ,persons who entigte to live, in what they consider Iux ury, without any legitimate meWisT of upplo-rt. Tlhcy wear dashing elIthes, sport fancy hate, are hing with clhitis and starred with gems -true or fale as thei ncae may le -cat and drink as taste or tlhe want or it may dictate, and reside --peos1hl1y the police know where. I Now how do tlhe, people live? The answer is very simple. Their t fod is Iools. Fools sunpply them with all the necessaries and luxur. ies of life. Once upo,le N time, many of these flashy individuals were as green as their present vie time rie; they have been taught craft by experience and are profit ing by a lessem learned perhaps at the cost or all they possessed. Are the "greeedorns" victlmtjed by this worshipful brotherhoe8 of swindlers, deserving of much pity? We think not. lie who pays ten dollars for a pocket book full of Cad bills supposing them to be good, or looses his panh at the pia tent sale game, or buys a "bargain" at. a mock auction, is, in pnrpo. a cheat. lie intends to owcr-rarA the poLrket-book dropper and the ptent safe man-ier buys the watch, in ferring from the price that it has been stolen. We might ask the press to pass the item 'round for the leaefit of their readers; but this would be unfair to the large sad reepeats. lWe class of knaves, here, there and everywhere. The Dnuthman fur nilhes a valuable. receipt which should not be pasred About for nothing. Let those who have ex perience, pay for it, and then it will be appreciated. There is a wonderful amodnt of sympathy for the young man who goes for the first time to'se the elephant, and *its at the table to play with him, in the hope of teaching the animal some now trick. Such deserve no sympathy ; they set down to win, flattering themaselves, that they thoroughly understand the "books." There isn only one class of poor fools for whom the Dutdhman has any sympathy, and they certainly de serve it. They are the political fools ; they who are allowed by the political knave to hold -primary meeting; fill unimportant places, and go into caucus to be used by their superiors. Poor fools, we doubt not your honesty, nor the sincerity with which you believe that you settle the affairs of the nation, when you have no power to move, or dance to the music, un til commanded. Such are foolsabso lute. IfIAn ON JUDAS Iscaior.-Arte man Ward, the " grte American Showman," relates, in his peculiar istyle, the following : Insido, in Ulmky.-In the Faul of 1866 I showed my show in Utiky, a trooly grate aitty in the State of New York.

Among them is an old withered mummy, whom We call' Commodore,' from the fact of his being the best fisherman n on th Idake. At some time in ear. f ly life he must have become de ranged ; and on his recovery of mind began life as a new creature -his recollection of what passed before his lunacy entirely obliter ated. His theory of his advent into i this world is that he was, at about r the age of seven hundred years, ejected from the planet Jupiter for some violation of the laws in that t orb, and, on recovering from the of r fects of that tremendous fall found r himself on the shores of this lake. At first, he says, the food of this earth did not suit him, he having subeasted, before his fall, entirely 'i on electricity, the only food known 1 in Jupiter I However, after havy h ing nearly perished from starvation, he discovered that whisky, and gin so nearly resembled electricity in their effects on his system, that he " has made shift to support nature a by using a plentiful admixture of them, with fih flesh, and fowl, veg etables, and tobaco ; which last ar ticle, he thinks, is suffioient to ren 1 der life, in this miserable, raw cold new world, tolerable, even pleas ant.
