This distinguished lady has received marked attention during her stay here. We had a social call yesterday from Mr. Samuel Fox, of Jacksonville, a prominent young attorney of that city. Mr. Fox is a genial companionable gen tleman and has our permission to call again. Mr. J. M. Siegler lias returned from South Carolina and will agaiu throw his indomitable pluck and energy into the service of the Florida Southern, lie re ports the service as steadily growing bet ter and the time faster. Capt. William Betsworth, who lxnight Mr, C. B. White's splendid orange grove, is in town and says he will try to boom Crescent City for a w hile now. His head is full of schemes and in him Putnam h;ts a valuable citizsn. The man who re places our friend. Mr. White, now of Daytona, needs to lie a first-rate. Our friend Fred Hughes, of Jackson ville brought in his uncle to see us when we were at leisure, for it was Sunday. So old times were discussed, and new ad ventures planned for a delightful future when work shall he no more and weari ness only the dream of a dreadful past. These gentlemen came in on the Gem City Route and rejort a large numler of passengers and a delightful time. Como again. Messrs. Rastus S. Ransom, Ellis S. Ya tes, Abram Kling and J. Sanford Potter, a distinguished party of young attorne s from New York are visiting our state on pleasure, and are stopping, at present, in our city. The party was in charge of Benj. Putnam Calhoun, Esq., yesterday arid we dare say were pleasantly enter tained. Mr. Ransom was the law part ner of R esident Arthur at the time of his election to the vice-Presidency and Mr. Potter is a son of one of the judges of the the supreme court, of the state of New York. An Unruly Team. A team of horses, belonging to the Pa latka Transfer Company, got frightened on the docks yesterday and ran away. The bus to which the team was at tached came in contact with the Kenner ly dray and upset it, the collision at the same time smashing cine of the wheels of ominubus. After a pirouette or two more the scared animals were captured by Mr. A. Week, and no further damage re sulted. The horses sustained no injury of consequence. The Avocado pear crop will not be as plentiful tliis year as it was last. ABOUT SNAKES. Ancient and 3Iodern Serpents Dis cussed by the Clabber Club. CANTO I. "I will tell you gentlemen,' remarked Judge Vertrees, of Tennessee, to a little group of Graham's philosophers and naturalists who sat enjoying a Sunday evening siesta under the fragrant orange laughs of the sidewalk; "I'll tell you I have baen acquainted with a great many snakes in the grass and otherwise, and lam piously prejudiced against them. 'Why am I piously prejudiced?' Because I get it from the law of Moses the Old Book. Moses was a suakist and what he didn't know about the snake of his time was hardly worth putting in the Five Books. Indeed," pursued the Judge, 11 w ing a whirlwind of Havana from his I mouth, "according to Moses, the Divinity j their interest to consult it. himself was also an expert among serpents j Messrs. II.

'Am I not righty I appeal gentlemen to your cleat sense of understanding. "Am I not cor rect';, Of course I am. canto i I. "Of course you tire," remarked Major Och iila Royal 1, of Virginia; '"I well re member Judge, to have read somewhere, or heard it read, that the snake started the first horticultural society and deliv ered the first original inaugural ad dress called Fruits ami Flowers, ami after this address, which, by the by, 1 am told, was a success, lie was stricken to the earth and eat dust "Upon thy belly shalt thou go and dust thou shalt eat all ) the days of thy life I believe is this scripture, and this proves to my compre hension that if the snake was not a ser pent previous to this curse, that he be came so from that moment. It also helps to prove, 'continued the Major, "ihe evolution, liecause if the snake, being a serpent, ate dust for a constant diet in the time of Moses he has evidently evo luted since, for the snake of to-day does not, cannot and will not eat dust. He won't eat it because he has no taste for it and he does not eat it because it clogs up the salivary of his swallowing appa ratus, in which dust is about as needful as sand in the eye." CANTO 1 I I. "Tut, tut," remarked Governor Towns, of Georgia, who had been a somew hat impatient listener so these observations and who was eager to get a whack at the subject. "Look at Egypt to-day full of war and snakes just as it used to be, and as we probably get our faith from India and from Egypt, the serpentine mytholo gy of Moses is accounted for; but that does not account for the sacred subtlety of the snake. Egyptian literature is full of snakes. Everylxxly has certainly read of or seen the engravings of the ser pents in the ancient coronets of the Nile. Everybody has read or heard of Mrs. Ptolemy and the asp, which is a very an cient story, a very salacious yarn, and therefore pawed all over by the poets. I care little about old Mrs. Ptolemy, but I am interested in the asp, hence I give the true story as follows: She put him to her bosom. Then she pinched bis little tail; The serpent frave a wijrjrle And the sorceress a wail. And then she cried "O Antenj !" And turned exceediii;;- eaie Hut the serpent died instninei'. While the Ptolemy wens to jail. The story shows conclusively that; Mrs. Ptolemy (nee Cleopatra), although .1 stu dent of reptilian sorcery, as Moes was. did not sabe real snakes: because, when .1 small serpent is sufHciently calm and amiable to permit itself to be placed, on a bad old woman's bosom, or upon a bare, warm arm. it is not going to strike that boscm or that arm.
