The remarkable power of the catbird as a singer is known to all those who give it a safe and welcome retreat. Yet i find even such writers as Baird describing it after this man ner: "An American bird of the thrash fam ily, whose crv resembles the mewing of cat" In reality it is the mocking bird of the north, possettsed of the ability to sing what ever notes he hears. I have them so perfectly at home in my grounds, that their delicious music is heard at all hours of the day, and often in the middle of the night. It is very curious to hear one of them warble in a low ; key to himself what some other bird is sing ing loudly. A few days since I heard one mimic a red squirrel, and he did it to per fection. If he had not enjoyed the fnn so well that he could not keep from hopping about, I should not have known which was squirrel. ldid not, however, intend, except incid entally, to write about the catbird, Mimus Carolinetisis. It, however, makes it easier for ns to conceive the possibility of an evolu tion of superior vocalization in his relatives, when we consider his masterly ability. What I wish to record is a remarkable development in the case of his cousin the common robin, or migratory thrush. Every one knows what a clumsy singer he is, having a rough, see saw note, that he repeats with little vari ation. For some reason the other birds give him precedence in the morning song with which dav light is greeted about 3:80 in June. The first note comes always from the east a faint, far away cry: then another cry leaps out of a tree nearer vou, and then another iUd another. So the wave of robin melodv moves westward, over the house and over the land, preceding the rising sun, probably from the Atlantic to the Pacific. This song is peculiarly adapted to constitute a matin cry, being clear, strong and cordiaL But it is not musical. LIKE HUMAN ARTICULATION. In June of IKS", crossing one of my lawns, heard a cry so peculiarly like articulation that I was startled: "Hear this birdie! Hear this birdiel Hear this pretty birdie!" the last notes being exquisitely rendered, with a wave and upward bend. I had never heard such a sons before, and imagined a new species of bird must have arrived; but after careful examination. I found the singer to be a veritable robin redbreast, and not a new comer at all. The song was repeated all the summer, to the del trht of myself and friends. Of course, I awaited the opening of spring with anxiefv, to know if our birdie would re turn. Almost the first song of spring, sure enough, was one morning in April: "Hear I this birdie! Hear this birdie!" But, better I yet, it was apparent that the babes of this family were singing, not the old robin's see- bnt the new song. And now about my pla 'e are three or four of our birdies. What was notable was not only the remarkable evolution of mu'ncal power, but a love for music; for our birdie, unlike the robins in general, sang alt day, like the catbirds. I could hear one or more at almost any hour. This drew my attention to the cause of the unexpected variation. John Burroughs suggested that it might be the song taught to one that had been caged and afterward escaped; but I am more inclined to think that it is a natural variation or evolution, and that the robin has great and undeveloped power. It is a phlegmatic bird, that takes the world eas v, and is not likely to exert itself in new directions. The cai bird is fond of notice, likes to be whirled to and enjoys answering back- He is likely to develqp all, sorts of new vocal arwmulishmente. JBnt the robin is really lazy, and does as little hard work as possible. His nest isacltunsv affair. a mere daub of mud and sticks. Why has he begun this new song? Is it from being so constantly with catbirds, grosbeaks, oriolea, etc.t for my nine acres are the paradise of birds. They are covered with fruits, hedges, trees. I do not know, but believe, some such cause to be at the bottom of the affair, and that we may look for other developments quite as remarkable. ANOTHER INTERESTTKO CASE. Within the month of June, while driving about five miles from my home, I saw a robin sitting on a wayside fence and singing a set of notes most charmingly unlike any thing 1 bad ever heard ; neither was it at all like our birdie. It was as complex as a cat bird often sings, but not apparently imita tive. TLis has led me to a very decided con viction that an evolution in robin music is now going on, and that some very delightful results may be looked for. I shall be glad to get notes from observers in different parts of the country. Of this I am certain, that our common thrush has a vast vocal power un developed. Evolution with birds must move. as it has moved in the line of music, plumage and night and nest building. Nothing in these directions need surprise us. I subjoin a note taken from a paper pub lished near New York city, over aoo miles from here: "Thomas O Donnell, of Rondout, has a robin which whistles like a mocking bird. This is probably due to the fact that It was raised in company with a mocker. The robin whistles 'Johnny, get your gun,' and Don't leave your Mother, Tom!' Its powers of municrv are wonderful In the early morning, when things are quiet, the whistle Two Distinct ftrta of "letter Day Saints.' A Brief HUtorr. There are two distinct sects commonly called Mormons, neither of whom recognize the name, but both of whom call themselves the "L'hurch of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints." They both originated with Joseph Smith in the year 1fl. The church under Joseph Smith's leadership suffered persecu tion because they seemed to be misunderstood by the people. In the United States many of them were killed and their homes burned by merciless mobs. In the year 1844 Joseph, his brother Hyrum, John Taylor and one Rich ards, hearing they were to be arrested for treason, surrendered at Nauvoo and were promised a fair trial They were confined in Carthage jail. A mob gathered around and forced their way into the jail, firing showers of balls at the prisoner' cella In attempt ing to escape Hyrum was shot dead, layior was shot in the leg and another ball struck his watch, knocked him dowtvand he rolled under the bed, the mob still firing at him, cutting from his hip a piece of flesh as large as a man's hand. Joseph attempted to jump out of the window, but two balls pierced him and he fell dead. In the excitement which followed Taylor and Richards escaped. At this time the church had a membership of about 85,000. Their leader now being dead, many different ones put in their claims to the leadership, Bngham Young among the number. He did not have much success at first, and out of the iJ5,0U0 only 10,000 ac cepted him as their leader. With these and other proselytes he went to the Great Salt Lake Valley, and there, some eight years after the death of Joseph Smith, he insti tuted, among other evils, polygamy and blood atonement, the latter of which con sisted in killing any member whom they thought likelv to apostatize, so that he might die in the faith and thus be saved. The history of the other organiratlon bearing the same name is not so well known. At the death of Joseph Smith thousands of his peo ple accepted no one as their leader. In the years IStO to 1858, Jason W. Briggs and Zenas Gurly endeavored to get the disbanded people together, but neither claimed leader ship. They tanght the same doctrine that Joseph Smith taught. April 0, I860, at a conference held at Am boy, Joseph Smith, the son of their late president, was placed at the head of affairs, where he remains to this day. Previous to his accepting the presidency of the church, he had studied law and wits practicing his profession at Nauvoo, for which place he was also a justice of the peace. After the organ ization there was some trouble between them and the Brighamites as to who was the owner of a temple, worth about $75.0(10, built at Kitiland. O., previous to the death of Joseph Smith, Sr.. They went to the courts about the matter aud judgment was given in favor of the Josephites it being proven that they were the true church and that the Brigham ites bad largely departed from the faith. The Josephites were incorporated by the United States in the vear 170, and are now growing very fast, numlierinsc about 25,000. "L. D. S." in Detroit Free Press. A Remarkable Letter.

The Lakeside horary was established in Chicago, and 'ts issues of standard novels at very cheap prioes became widely known and appreciated. This wasfollowpd by the Seaside library, pub- lialied by George Mitnro. The Harpers swung into line with the Franklin Square, and were followed by John Lovell & Co. with Lovell s library. All of these libraries were based upon the same plan, the republication of for eign works in a very cheap form. 1 be en terprise bad two elements of weakness in it, one inherent and tne otuer the result or com petition. To take the latter first, there was a good pf silt in t-he busiows fnr one fti in. hut as in order to make it pay hundreds of thou sands of booka bad to be aold, the com pota tion divided the market too much. The Lakeside died first. Then the Harpers announced than tlie Franklin Square was to be published occasional lv only. It is under stood that Munro has sold his library bnai- to Ijovell, leaving the field practically to him. But Mr. Lovell will find that the inherent elements of weakness will have an effect upon him; he will not be able to get books to standard, w hen one remembers that it takes from sir months to a year to write a book, and that the libraries were is sued weekly or semi-weekly in some cases daily it will be seen at once that it was only a question of time when publishers would overtake authors. As these libraries have from the first consisted of works written abroad, upon which there was no copyright, the novels of England have been exhausted. Translations have been made from the French and German until now there are no more good books that is, books worth read ing.
