Besi.lo the cliuraot.-r common to the group known as exantlionmtii, scarlatina is almost always utteuded by sore throat, huiI the soitrlot riinh or eiuj tian, which f;ive the name to the disease, breaks out as early n the socon J day uftor the .ilpnrnnc! ol tho fever, and ends on tho wxth or deveuth day in the separation ol the eutielo. Xt nrl.y all intJicnl writers niontiou threes vnrioties of tho disease scarlatina simplex, in which scarcely any throat trouble attends tho fever anil the rash ; scarletina anginoho, in which throat trouble is more prominent than iu either of tho other alt'wt;onn, and scar latina nm.'if tia, in which tho system is Immediately overborne by the violence of the disorder, aud tho patient exhibits treat weakness aud lo;s of vitality. The disppso begins with chilliness, lati tude., he ;d:K'he, rapid pulse, dry, hot akin, flushed face, loss of appetite and fnrn'd tongue. Pr. siutly the throat feels irritated, grows rid, and ia often fwoilen. Tim email points of tho rash so inorua.se that tho skin soon seems al mtt uuiforuily red, extending from the tiu'e, nick and bn.iut to the trunk and extremities. rihe separation of the cuticle iu the scales umuIIj nils iu a fortnight or mora from tho declaration of the disteaiper. The fever continue with tlie rottli ; is .metiiutis a-j. omj uuiod with delirium, even coma. I.i the maligijfuit, or Hunt f inn, the riwli conies out Into ami piir tijtllv, beinjj at times barely perceptible. At other tiiue it may abruptly recede, or bo mingled witii livid epots. The skin is coid, with feeble pulse and ex treme prestation, and drain niny occur frequently from bloud-pcisoniiig in a few hours. In such esses liie tongue is dry, brown, tremulous ; the throat is livid, swollen, uicrutod, gangrenous; breulhing ). iajpe.lert by viscid mucus that collects about the fauv", end medi cine avails little. Even in scarlatina unginoMu tliere is con.sidero.lile danger. It may prove .fatal irom the inflamma tion or fh'usion within the head, or from diaorgsuiitrttion of the tnroat aud slough ing olT of adjacent parts. Teeming women are iu imminent pord from the mildest phase of the fever. When it seems to be cured its consequences are hazardous. Children, to whom it is main ly con fined, of course, are subject after a severe attack to permanent ill-health, and to some of the many forms of chronio scrofula, as shown by boils, sores behind the earn, inflammation of the eyes, glandular swellings, and stru mous ulcers. Scarlatina is oltcn followed by a peculiar dropsy, afl'ecting the sub cutaneous cellular tissues and larger serous cavities. It occurs, like all the exanthemata, as an epidemic some times in Tory virulent type. In the Rim pie variety, remaining within doors, non-stimulating diet and regulation of tlie bowels are generally fouud suflicient. Iu the second variety, leeches are often employed, especially where delirium supervenes. The two principal sources Oi dimmer in the malignant variety are from the primary effect ot the contagious poison upon the body and from gangre nous ulceration of the throat. The tlnaj r-'sult is always uncertain. Whether it is contagions throughout its course, or at one period alone, has never beeu as certained ; bnt that the power of con tagion rt mains in clothing, furniture, tto., is nnquebtioneJ and unquestion able.

In the swamps and bayous of the moist regions of the South pure vegetable mat ter, having the appearance and proper ties of peat, may often be found in the very act of accumulation. It frequently occurs in immense beds, and it requires no trained observation to see that, in ad dition to the remains of the ordinary low marsh plants, it is made up of the ruins and refuse of swamp-loving forest trees. Now, all about the flanks and spurs of the Rocky mountains, with greater or less intervals, from New Mexico to fur beyond the northern limits of the United States, there aro found beds of coal of peculiar (u ilily. This coal is covered up with hardened mud containing Bhella and bones ot aquatic animals, and everything about it suggests that tho cool-making material was somehow sunk beneath the waters of un old lake, and was buried un der the gradually-increasing bed of mud with which the old lake-basin yas fiualh tilled. But the point cf interest is this : that in many places the Rocky mountain coal has reached a stiigo of decompositi 'U not so very allien in advance of the hu mus and peat of enr modern swamps and bnyous. We might, indoed, hesitate about calling some portions of it coal ai ill for the oiij;iual structure is nlmos' perfectly preserved yet it must be ad mitted that for tho mc;st part the decom position has advanced far enough to pro duce an article tha deservedly ranks as coal. In the lisht of what may be ob served going on in every favorably situ . ated swamp to dny, the source of t!i material and the method of aconmntatioi. of tho Rocky rnnuLtiiin coal can bardh be doubtf'd.

In a fashionable saloon on Kearny street, two distinguished- looking militia men were recounting their numerous campaigns at Sacramento and San Bru no, when a man with one sleeve of his coat empty lounged up to the bar. As he did so he touched the elbow of one of the bullion-bound warriors, and at once apologized to the tierce military glare fastened on him. " Beg pardon," said he, " but Tm al ways kind of careless wnen any of the boys in blue are 'round. I used to be one nivseif." The warriors in blue and gold did not eleign to respond, but the stranger was uot on the alert for any obvious slights. " I lost this arm," he continued, "at Vicksburg. Aud this ough," he add ed, as he sho. k on a spasm, " I got in the same place." " Rathef a poor recompense, wasn't it?" askeel one of the militiamen. "Couldn't you get anything better?' ' Yes," said the wr ck of humanity, with a touch of genuiue. pride, "I got ihis, too," and he threw back the lapel of his insty coat to exhibit a small medal. As he nuclasped it ,wid handed it over for inspection, he saiel: " I got it for i icing tha be'st-elressed soldi, r inth Thirt enth Army C rps at Miiliken's Ueud, b-fore tho capture of Vicksbmg.

It was about as good as any other uniform in the corps, but, ot course, that wouldn't amount to nothing; I winted it to be bcttdr. What do you ehink I did ? " ' Bought a new one, I suppose," said tho barkeeper. The veteran smiled. "I went down and stcod up to my chin in the Yazoo for an hour before parade, I'd bur nished up all the buttons and blackened iny shoes with a peoe of burned leather aud pork fat, and when I walked up with my wet suit I ju.t paralyzed the crowd.

Thomas Dick puts the hoarding of wealth in this striking way : Suppose a man could lay up a stock of clothes aud provisions sufficient to last mm tor 300 years, whit would it avail him, since ho can live at most but from seventy to 100 years? Suppose he laid up in a stoic-house 70,000 pans of sin es, to what end would it serve, if he cou.d make use, during his whole life, of only the one-hundredth part of them? Ho would be iu the same condition as a man who had 100 dishes placed before him at dinner, but who could partake of only one ; or of a person who had 100 mansions purchased for his residence, but could occupy only one. How ridicu lous it would appear if all that could bo said of a man while yet he lived was Biniply this that his whole life had been spent in collecting and laying up in a storehouse C0,0j0 mahogany chairs which were never iuteneled to be used for the furniture of apartments, or 70, 000 pairs of trousers which were uever to be worn ! Aud where is the elifference, in point of rationality and utility, be tween such absurd practices and hoard ing thousands of guineas and bank notes which ure never brought forth for the oeuetit of mankind. There ia no conduct connected with the pursuits of human .icings th. t fppeais more absurd t nan inch praciicea (however common) if ex- mined by the elietat s of reason.
