Curiously examining a handful of French Coin recently—for even edit ors have money sometimes—we were struck, although not for the first time, by the mute testimony they bear to the fickleness of France in her choice of rulers. On one five franc piece we observed the profile of a royal Bour bon legitimate—he who lost his head to appease the fury of hit mercurial subjects. On another piece was stamped the calm, firm face of poleon—Corporal, General, Consul, Emperor, exile. The next coin, dated one year later, bore the gross features of Louis XVIII, who could learn nothing from experience, and who fied so ingloriously when Bonaparte re turned from Elba. Next comes Charles X, and following him the late Louis Phillip—the history of which royal couple was drolly told by Punch, in a single stanza after the style of Mother Goose: “ Charles and Phil’ Went up the hill, In France across the water; Cba hi fell down And lost his crown. And Phil' came tumbling after.” Next is the coin of the second Re public, bearing the hopeful legend of “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity,” and that poetical group which personifies it. Lamartine, the Poet-President, un equal to the burden of government, was succeeded by Louis Napoleon, who soon executed the coup d ’ eiat , and now figures on the current coins of France as Emperor—Napoleon 111. All these momentous changes occurred within a period of time that might have been embraced in one long reign of peace. The jingling coins that chronicle them now lie peacefully together, none of them bearing marks of age though so elo quent of mutability. But the Amer ican coin, like American institutions, is always the same, —for though our rulers change, the Constitution never changes, at least in its vital form.— Faction may croak, and the timid dread, and disloyalty prophecy the fulfillment of its own wishes; but the Constitution, and the Union with it, is firm. The federal currency bears no imperial upstart’s head, nor that of kingly ruler, but simply the maiden face of liberty, girt with stars, fit emblems of stability— “ Which gaze on tempests bat are never shaken.” To a foreigner, the subject of a despotism that brands all free expres sion of opinion as treason, the strife of party in the United States must appear full of dangerous threatening to the existence of our Government. But to our own citizens, who boldly canvass every public measure, and who know how trifling are some of the questions which have agitated the whole nation, this strife seems only the natural offspring of liberty and its best protector. And even should the confederacy be divided— which heaven forfendl—the blood* bought privileges of freemen would remain inalienable, and the coins of the land be ever typical of their ex istence. Ambergris.—ld the intestines of a whale which was lately captured by Capt. Hussey, of .Nantucket, was found the extraordinary secretion of about six hundred pounds of amber gris. The largest piece before known! weighed one hundred and eighty-two pounds. The lucky Captain sold his prize to a Boston firm of Druggists for SIO,OOO, and the purchasers will probably realize $60,000. It is' mostly used in making perfnmdry. The Tehuantepec Route. —lt is estimated that about $1,000,000 will be necessary to put this route in such a condition that mailannd passengers could pass over it in sixteen boars with certainty-and safety.* The road is now in ..course of construction. According to contract it was tobave been completed in October. Woman at Table. It was one of the affectations of Byron that ho did not like to see wo-, men eating. In his opinion no beauty could stand that test, or come from the ordeal of a feast without mitiga tion of her charms. He refused to at tend a supper at the house of Rogers, so that poet tells us, because women were going to be there. Allowing something for exagger ation, the noble bard’s aversion to witnessing women at their meals may be considered not unreasonable nor absurd. The spectacle of a fair creature whom we have been accus tomed to surround with poetical graces and the halo of an exquisite tender ness, indulging an avid appetite, soil ing her red lips with unctious viands and working her slight jaws just like any common mortal, must be trying indeed to one’s reverence. She seems a creature “ too bright and good For human nature’s daily food,” and the extravagance of sentiment leads one to wish that she could be nourished in some less vulgar and more etherial mode. Yet there may be grace in eating, as in anything else. Some women of refinement can so conduct themselves at table that, without an ill-bred watching of them, it shall not be known they eat at all; and this modest demeanor they main tain without the slightest appearance of affectation or effort. What can be more beautiful than the manner in which an accomplished housewife presides at her own tea-table, serving her guests with charming self-posses* sion, ease, and grace, and, between the intervals of her attention to their wants supplying her own in a quiet, unnoticed way. If she is addressed she is evsr ready to reply without awkwardness, not being compelled to make the uncourteous pause resulting from a full mouth hastening to void itself through the throat. Such a woman we feel to be a lady, a good wife, a creature worth dying for—if those days were not over. In the early times, when floors were strewn with rushes for carpets, and when the thousand appliances were un known which now distinguish man when at his repasts from all other an imals, the process of eating must have been greatly more repulsive to sen sitive gentlemen than at present. The noblest lady in the land was compel led to put her fingers into the food and convey it thus to her mouth. Im agine, oh ye delicate feeders of to-day —ye happy wielders of knife, fork, and spoon—the gross spectacle of a heroine of old romance togging at a greasy bone! But there was such a thing as table etiquette Oven then. We know not whether the knife-and fork era had begun ere Chaucer’s time, but message in the prologue to his Caflroburjr Tales proves not only that he had a nice observation, but that there was an idea in those days of good manners at table. De scribing a nun— “nprlorewe That of her smiling was fail simple and coy,” - he mentions as one of her charms her decent mode of eating: “At meat-e was she well y-tengfat witball; She let no morsel from her lip-pea (all, Nor wet hdr fingers in her saucer deep. Well could she carry a morsel and well keep, Tbat-te no .drop e’er fell upon her breast. In curtesy was set full much her lest, [pleasure.] Her orer lip-pe wip-ed She so clean That in her cup-pe waruo'smaU spot seen. Of grtas-e when she drunken had her draught.” The text as given here is slightly modernized in point of orthography, and the syllables of some words sepa rated in accordance with the rythm, for the convenience of the reader; otherwise, this quaint specimen of English maimers remains as WqlaDan” wrote it five cenuries ago. The Whole passage indicates the most dainty cleanliness on the part of the fair young nun, and no doubt die ale with modesty and tem perance. Her behavior at table might serve as an example even at the present day, when it is so com mon to see ladies linger over their plates with a long i continued indus trious application which savors more of a good appetite than of good man hert. Discontent. —In the American character there is a strong progres sive element which may be designated as discontent. This prompts us to be migratory in search of wealth or in dependence. This Las extended civ ilization from the coast of New Eng land to that of the Pacific, from Maine to California. This drove our fore fathers from Europe—produced the Revolution—produced the constitu tion. It has made us all ws are at pres ent, and will conduct us to whatever I greatness is reserved for us in the fu ture. It is not a merely moibid qual ity of the mind—a diseased and causeless fretting against irremedia ble circumstances; but a healthy power that its appointed work. Oftentimes it is a co-laborer with rad icalism, if not its parent, and then it is condemned by the conservatives. This latter class forget the day of their own discontent, —they know not the words of the wise man who saith the radicalism of to-day is the con servatism of to-morrow. Discontent is the synonym of activity, the spur of genius, the master-spirit of ad vancement. It is the destiny of man kind, the curse that fell on Adam— all that ever inspired the idea of a millenium. Without it man would be a prisoner to changeless fate ; his own slothful intellect would exclude him from all healthful, invigorating influences, and be would ultimately fall a victim to bis own impotcncy. Discontent is the conservator of the race. Subterranean Ice-fields.— Amongst the many wonders of that wonderful [country which the over land immigrant traverses incoming to California, not the least marvel lous are those beds of ice which lie in places beneath s the surface of the ground. Cutting down through the warm green [sod, a[few inches only, the surprised traveler dicovers an underlying stratum of unthawing ice at the warmest seasons. It is as if summer had suddenly thrown her verdurous mantle over polar glaciers, shutting them out forever from the warm rays of the sun. The extent of these icebeds is unknown, and equally unknown are the strange pro cesses of congelation by which they were formed. Their existence is cause for much speculation, and they are infinitely suggestive of similes. We have often thought they typified that class of persons who go through life with a smiling exterior and win the reputation of being good fellows, yet whoso hearts are ice, their pri vate characters void of kindness, their conduct towards their fri ?nds and families marked by selfishness and petty cruelty, and their whole careei ungraced by one purely benevolent action. arson Beecher does not think much of politicians. Hear him : “Political life is bad, very bad. There are some good individuals, 1 suppose, to be found in every place —Lot, you remember, was found in Sodom —but I think the angel would be as. puzzled to find ten honest men in Washington as he was jn that old city. This state of things does’nt seem promising, truly ; but yet it is true, the time will come, when Chris tianity will be applied to politics. The statesman smiles when I say this to him, and advises me to attend to my own business, preach the gospel, and let politics alone. Nay* but this is my business, for it is my business to preaeh the devil out of the world; and if you want to find the devil go among the statesmen, or those who are called so^politicians!” And, here is what the heterodox gospeller says about churches : “I thank God for churches, but you must never undertake to estimate the number of true Christians by the number of chureh members, for there sre a great many men Out of the church, more orthodox, more Chris-* tian, than many in.” We concur.

Knighthood—the true knight hood in America —is no longer a thing of caste. The working men of the United States step into the arena of literature, science and art. They claim right, knowledge, happiness, brotherhood for all. Go forth, then, Democratic working men in the true spirit of Knight-errantry, champion ing right and contending against wrong until “A brighter morn awaits the human day. When every transfer of Earth’s natural gifts Shall be a w>mmcrceof good words and works, — When poverty aud wealth, the thirst for fame, The fear of infamy, disease ind woe, War, with its million horrors and fierce hell Shall live bnt in the memory of time. Who, like a penitent libertine shall start. Look back and shudder at bis younger yean.’ California Home Journal* Selfish Wealth.— The punish ments for not using or for badly using wealth are decided and unerring. We pity the miser, or despise him, or we do both. We do not re'speet him. The man who hoards has the respect of no man while he lives, and the tears of none when he dies. There is in the universal human heart a tri* bunal by which such a man is justly judged. On the other band, the compensations for the right use of wealth are marked and certain. A man who livos in the atmosphere of grateful hearts, and takes genuine satisfaction in the use of his power to make men happy, and ministers to the prosperity of great human‘inter* ests, is the only happy rich man the world ever saw. All men bless him) all men love him; and when he disc the world feels that a great grief hat befallen it .—Springfield Republican « Autographs.— When the sweet* heart of Mr. John Junk requested his autograph, and explained what il was, namely, “a couple of lines or so* with his name to it,” he replied, that he would leave it to her in his Will) seeing as how it was “done with gun powder on bis left arm.” There have even been autographs written by proxy. For example, Df Dodd penned one for Lord Chester field; but to oblige a stranger in this way is very dangerous, considering how easily a few lines may be twisted into a rope. According to Lord Byron* the Greek girls compound autographs as apothecaries make up prescriptions— with such materials as dowers, herbs* ashes, pebbles, and bits of coal. Lord Byron himself, if asked for a sped 4 men of his hand, would probably have sent a plaster cast of it.— Hood .

Borne of the planks and heavy timbers bear the marks of cannon balls, and are con siderably shattered. Choate’s Style.—lt is said that the very first paragraph of Hon. Ru fus Choate’s oration at Boston, on the sth July, contained two hundred and sixty-six words, uttered without pausing to take breath. Another sentence contains over five hundred words, is 12 inches long in print, aqd is decorated with about two hundred adjectives. ” '*
