We were shown a few days since an im
mense boar’s claw the owner thereof having
been killed by Mr. W. H. Langford when
upon the recent hunting expedition in Mis
sissippi and Cross counties. We thought
that Mr. Langford preferred Union county
as a hunting ground, and have heard that
the game is generally dear.
The ladies of Christ Church will shortly
arrange a Bazaar for the sale of rich and
handsome articles of various kinds. They
design presenting for sale some dolls that
will be dressed by mothers who understand
the taste and wants of little dainty girls,
who are so fastidious as regards the hat or
shoe of the pretty doll child they love to
carry. At this Bazaar the little girlie
mammas may purchase for themselves the
beloved little object, resting asstired that
the baby doll will look extremely nice and
keep her eyes constantly fixed upon her
new little mother without dread or fear.
The Concert given on Monday evening
by the Young Ladies Society of the First
Presbyterian Church was in every way a
success, and to Mrs. Allis, Mrs. Cooper,

Mr. Louis Bernays, at his art emporium
and handsome jewelry store, will soon in
vite his friends to some elegant evenings of
opening. He has kindly permitted us to
view in advance some of the beautiful arti
cles now arriving. Among them are choice
vases of rare workmanship, reposse and
hammered ware in lamps, sconces and can
delabra, urns, tea sets and every variety of
beautiful and also useful silver in artistic
reposse work. There are some splen
did bronzes, and clocks that would delight
the taste of the most refined connoiseur in
these choice articles of vertu ; for they are
exquisite. One must wander through the
maze of glittering bijoutrie, gold, silver and
crystal, through the rows of plush toilet
and jewel cases, with a look into the large
oval brass mirrors, a moment then notice the
brass tables adorned with flower's, and then
stop before the choice pictures, among
which we noticed a copy of Mayer Von
Bremen’s “ Peek-a-Boo,” with other pic
tures of excellence and landscapes. In fact,
Mr. Bernay has contributed much to the
artistic taste of the city by his recherche se
lections, and the rare articles he places be
fore his customers.
With the exception of the dean of Christ
Church and Prof. Jewett, master of Baliol,
there is not now a single head of a college
in Oxford who has any reputation as an
author in the world of letters. Oxford, in
deed, seems nowadays to be vying with her
silent sister in Dublin. To what end, ask
the irreverent, is all this learning and the
pecuniary reward thereof.
Honesty sometimes keeps a man from be
coming rich, and Civility from being witty.
—Chesterfield.
