Marvels of Japanese Jugglery.
' The frjlowing will be read with interest
by the curious:
I will mention but one or two items, A
grophio writer upon Japan some time since
made the world acquainted with the most
graceful and boautil'ul, nnd at the same time
wonderful, of all the feats performed by the
jugglers of i!iat country. Tliey were the
top and butterfly trick. A top is et spit
liiniT in he air, on its descent it ii catizlit
on ftwfA'i'j of a jword, where it whirls
merriiy; men u is orougm aiong uie Keen
edge to the handle; then it renews its flight
to be again caught, and ultimately it is sent,
like a minature Bloudin, across a silken
thread which Is invisible to the audience;
meantime it descends the slack, sometimes
ascends the hill, but is always sure of foot,
and waltzes its way over the narrow path.
from the boxes of a theatre to the back of
the stage ns readily as across a drawing
room. The butterflies are cut out of many
colored paper, and fly about as if endowed
with life. In obedience to the wave of a fan
they fly high or fly low; now they flutter
over a lady's boquet, now they light upon
the spray of a wreath, now they gyrate
mo'J.-!ike. round a gas-jet. This feat alone
is si ilicietit to take the town by storm.
Ti c Houston (Texas) Telegraph praises

was raised by German labor in Austin

V learn from reliable authority that the
Gern ans in different portions of the Stat
are making great preparations to plant larg
field of cotton next season. Many have
rented lands from planters who are willing
to allow them their use for a reasonable

from tlio German States will be encour

Gamblers in Smoking Cars Beware of
Genteel looking Persons who Invite
to Play Euchre.
From the Cleveland Plaindealer.
There are many pests t hat infests trains
and railroad depots, bul'nune more despic
able and tj be avoided than the ' poker
players," to be found in the smoking cars
on most of the trains of many of our roads.
Tu the credit of some railroad companies,
be it said, these nuisances and pests have
been hunted out. They usually go in com
panies of two and three, and put on the opt
pearance of strangers' to eaeli jollier. One
proposes a friendly game fur pastime. The
accompliceseonsentaiid generally manage
to draw a stranger in with them. The
game progresses, becomes monotonous, and
another proposes a small stake to give in
terest to the game; The story issoon told.
Tho stranger is fleeced. A gentleman ar
rived here yesterday on one of the roads,
having lost all the money he Lad, -,$175, in
this way.
From the Buffalo Commercial Advertiser,
A day or two since a person who travels
on one of the roads leading into the city
called upon us with the request that we
a'ould say something about the evil com
plained ot above. He says there is a trio
of genteelthieves who go over the road two
or three times a week for the purpose of
fleecing verdant passengers, and they are
gtihtrally successful. The triclt to which
they generally resort is thot of getting up a
friendly gamo of "euchre," having prevail
ed upon one or more of the passengers (o
join in, "just to relieve the monotony."
In the course of the game'one of the sharp
ers compln'ns that he has no luck in hold
ing "euchre" cards, but that if the game
was "poker," his hands would always win.
A bet is made between two of them, and
the braggart loses. By and by one of the
innocent passengers, w ho has seen the game
of ' bluff." or "poker," finds that he has
got "four of a kind" in his hand, and when
the gentleman who proposed the game offers
to bet that he lias gut " the best bluff hand
round the board," passenger cannot resist
the temptation, as he regards " four queen3
and an ace" ns a "sure thing." Twenty,
fifty, perhaps an hundred dollars, is put up,
(we know a late instance where the stake
Decrease of the Alps.
A modern writer on Nature and Art has
spoken of the gradual but sure decrease of
body in the Alps mountains; his thoughts
and observations the traveler may easily
verify. It is written of men that they ell
do fade as a leal". The hills, also, are
wasting and wearing awoy, and slowly run
ning down td the sea. The valley is a wit
ness to the mountain s weakness; me
glazier pulverizes the rock, and every
mountain streamlet carries down its contri
bution to the plain, perhaps each drop a
sand grain. The waste of the mountains is
forming new earth. Nearly every Alpine
lake is a proof of this. The Rhine depos
its in lake Constance have formed a largo
delta. What was formerly a lurae bay in
Lake Lucerne is now a marsh, and in other
part the rocks that one little brook has
brought down have nearly stopped naviga
tion. The earth that .the Ilhine has gather
ed has shortened the southern horn of Lake
Geneva nine miles. By observing and
weighing tho amount of sediment in a cer
tain quantity of water tuken from a glazier
streamlet, the number of tons which Mont
Blano annually loses was at once estimated.
It thus becomes a matter almost within the
range of mathematical calculation to com
pute the number of years when the moun
tains shall have yielded their strength, and
when the "hill shall have been made low."

The departure of Lieut. Gen. Grant
for Richmond has occasioned considerable
conjecture, The prevailing impression is
that he has been deputed by the President
for a line of duty connected with high polit

Charleston and other Southern cities, while
the suggestion has been made that it may
extend to New Orleans, and even further
beyond the Mississippi.

gave a shrug w ith h's shoulders by which I
understood he meant if his companion was
