10 SPARKS OF SCIENCE. Flora Round About Chicago—Tbo Rose Family. Tho Rainbow-Fish, and How Ho Bnllds a Nest. Exhibition of Scientific Apparatus- Flora of South Australia. JxonA ROUND ABOUT CHICAGO. Tub Kosb Family.—'There Is not In all the floral kingdom a more useful family than tho JioMW* which affords the most valuable fruits produced In temperate climates; nor Is there one celebrated for greater beauty, for does it not contain the rose, justly acknowledged the queen of flower’s? The family comprises several sub-orders, viz.: the AmywMta (Almond- Tribe), the Xoaaeea (Hose-Tribe), and the fomea (Pear-Tribe). The Almond-Trlhe embraces the Peach, Nec tarine, Plum, Cherry, Almond, Sloe, Wild Cherry, Choke Cherry, etc. The species Inhabit almost exclusively the cold or temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere,—an Insignificant number occurring In South America, and In scattered localities lu the Torrid Zone. It Is now agreed by tho best authorities that the Peach barf never been found In a wild state. The Plum originated in Caucasia and Northern India; the Cherry also In Asia; tho Nectarine Is an offspring .of the Peach; and tho Almond Is referred to tho same genus AmyrjdaUu t If not 'o tho same species. The only representatives of the tribe Indige nous In our vicinity arc the Dwarf Cherry {Vrunia which grows along tho lakc uboro; and the Choke Cherry (A Virfjtntana), which Is found on toe banks of running streams. Doth species blossom in May, and are easily recognized by their white flowers,—in the last named terminating tho leafy branches with long racemes. Of the tribe liotacat, there irro In our Chicago flora seventeen species, divided between seven genera. The Wild Strawberries {Fragaira Hr l/inbvia and J , \ Ve*en) were In blossom several weeks ago. Doth species alTcet dry soils, but ncithcrlscommonhcrcabouts. The F. Vesen may be distinguished from the A l . Vlrghthuia by its thinner leaves and more slender habit. Several of the Potentfllcu arc already In bloom. The Silver-Weed (7*. antertm ) Is covered with brig lu ycllow flowers, down on the lake-shore; and Its rich, handsome foliage—each leaf lined with a coat of silvery down—ls waving in lush luxuriance in the wind. The Common Cinquefoil (7*. CamdensU) is equally advanced in Its development, and is abundant In dry grounds. Its live leaflets give it the common name of Five-Finger. The Jt‘. Xorva/ica, a homely weed, Is common in Helds. The JK frutirasa, a shrubby species, which grows in damp places north and south of us, will come Into blossom tills month. The Marsh Flve- Flngcr(7’. paluttrU), which has purple instead of tiie yellow flowers home hy most of the other species, blooms from June to August. The plant abounds near tiie swumps at Miller's station. . Of the Gtnm, we have hut one species, the O. album, or White Avens, which is now in blos som in wooded lands west of the city. It Is a slender-stemmed plant, with 3-5 lobed leaves. Tiie Agrimony (Ayrimouia JCnmtoria) puts forth its racemes of small yellow flowers In the month of July. The weed is common in the borders of the woods. The pretty Spirant are in their prime in June and July. The Nine-Bark (S. opullfolla), a shrub from 4to 10 feet high, with tliree-lobcd leaves and corymbs of white flowers, is n deni zen of the swamps at Graeclnnd and Gibson's Station. The Common Meadow Sweet (S. mild folia), which under cultivation is esteemed an ornament of the gardens, grows wild in low, wet grounds, and la in blossom in July. Thu Hardback (.S', tometdomi), which has dense pantl elcs of rose-tinted flowers, is less common, but may be found at Gibson's and Miller's. Of the genus Jtubu*. which contains the Rasp berries and the Blackberries, called indiscrimi nately Brambles, we have two species, tiie High Blackberry (li. vUlonu) and tiie Low Blackberry {li. Vnunaeunls), both of which are occasionally met with in the botanist’s saunterlngs. Eight species of Roses are included In the flora of the United States east of the .Mississippi, and three of these arc tobo found here. Specimens of the Early Wild Rose (7fc«i Wamfu) arc already adorn- Inpthc low bushes on which they grow. This species Is less common than the Dwarf Wild Rose (li. luclda), which closely resembles It. The Swamp Rose (It. Carolina) must be looked for Irt'damp grounds cost of the city. From the one climbing Koso which growswlld in America, the Prairie-Rose (It. Sel*;/era), have Iwcn derived by cultivation the beautiful Prairie- Queen, Baltmnru Belle. Rosa Buperba, etc.; and from the Wild Sweet-Brier have sprung the Clementine, the Malden, Royal, Scarlet, Tree double, and oilier elegant varieties. Mustof the Roses prized In our hot-houses and gardens are either natives of the East, of Asia, Japan, the Levant, or of Southern Europe, or nave been produced by the florist's arts from stocks originally derived froti| these foreign countries. The third tribe united in the Rose-Family, \)\*i J’vmttr, or Pear-Tribe, lias live representa tives in our Horn. Tiie Scarlet-Fruited Thorn WraUnju* cocelmt), and the Black or Pear Thorn (O. tomadu/ut), are among the loveliest ornaments of rural scenery during the month of May. When the orchards are in bloom, they 100 unfold their wlilto or rosu-hued petals, delicately tinted as the lining of a sea-shell, and attract all the merry insects that fly. by their delicious perfume. The wild Orali-Applu (J’ijrua eownarta) expUnds its large, fragrant blossoms at the same time; but tho Choke- Berry (7*. arhuttfoUa) Is u little lotcr. This last will he found at Calumet, but the other inhabits thu glades to the north and west of tiie city. Thu earliest bloomer of all thu Rose- Family is tills, which wu mention Inst, tiie Shad- Bush (Atndanc/iUr CanadeiuU), widen received its name In New England from the fact that it unrolls its long, Bmp, whltu petals at thu sea son when the sliud arc swimming in thu streams. Tiie tree grows on the margin of rivers mid wet places, and Is very conspicuous when in blossom, looking lihu a soft, whltu cloud entangled among tiie leafless brunches of tiie forest. To thu Pear-Trilm belong tliO Apple, thu Pear, the Sort, thu Medlar, thu Quince, tiie Service, and thu hamlsomu Motm tuln-Asti. Tiiu trlhu consists wholly of trees and rhinitis, mid is dlstrll>- uted over Europe, Northern Asia, North Amer ica,'and thu mountains of India. Thu wood of certain species is very hard and durable, suit able for the use of engravers, and for purposes reqnlrlng’toug'uness and strength. The Rose-Family includes about I,ooospecies: and, frum thu fruits wu have enumerated, and tiie varied useful qualities at which wu have but hinted, it will 1.0 veer, how high thu order ranks in the service of matudml. TIIK HAI^BOW-nsn. In the family uf listm there are a few species that have the singula* habit uf building neats to shelter their ollsprlng, The little Stickleback that Inhabits English waters Is one of these, and Is especially prized as an Inmate of the aqua rlum, where Its skill lu arehU*ntnre may he plainly observe*!. We have some time ago described the domestic structures built by this liny Ush. which are remarkable for their curious workmanship. Lately there lias been Introduced Into Europe a tropical species, culled, from Its vivid coloring, the “ Rainbow-Fish,” which rivals the Stickleback iu the art with which it constructs a receptacle for Us eggs and young fry. Cfiatnbcru* Journal contains uu Interesting abstract of a paper read by Monsieur Carbon tiles before the Furls Acclimatisation Society, in which the author describes the operations of the Kainbow-Fish throughout the whole process of nldlficatlon. As with the Stickleback, It is the mole Ualubow-Flsh which Is the neat-builder,— bis male taking uu burden upon herself In the provision fur her young. This is one of the few Instances In the animal world where the cares of parentage arc properly divided. As the breeding season approaches, the tints uf the lUUnbow-Hsb deepen in Intensity, and, is It darts In bewildering mazes through the water, tbu flash and play of the light units ic-ules create uo ever-shifting change of color that U singularly captivating. When the hour has come for It to commence the work of build ing, the tinny carpenter chooses Us materials (rum the aquatic foliage by which It Is sur rounded. According to the authority already quoted. Monsieur Carboniiler states from his own observation that’ 4 * the .weeds growing In the aquarium lu which some uf his specimens were eontlucd were of u kind which would not float. '1 he tibia lore oil bits of the leaves In his mouth, and expelled them towards the surface; but their b]M.clilc gravity was too great, and Ids elforU were unavailing. Monsieur Carbunnlcr, with a quick perception of the fish's wauls, re placed the plants with others uf a liner texture, and then had the pleasure of peeing the fish re new Its attempts with complete success. “ Rut the fish was too cunning nti architect to trust to the natural flotation of the building materials, and, offer placing a few nieces to gether In position, lie formed several mr-lmhhles in a viscid secretion, which he was able to eject from his month, and placed them In contact with his floating nest. Just, In fact, as engi neers among ourselves have proposed to raise the Vanguard by means of Immense air-bags, the Kalhlfciw-Flsfi, wiser than ourselves, formed Ids air-bags and attached them to Ids ship ns a pre cautionary measure, to nrevent Its sinking from natural Instability, collision with piscine Iron Dukes, or other untoward causes. “ Day by day, the work of knitting together the little morsels of weed progresses, till u floating domed Island 3 inches In diameter is formed (the llsh itself is not more than half that length): but this Is, bo to speak, only the foundation of the edifice, the roof being In reality constructed before any other part, beneath tids roof a com plete circular best Is built, which the fish welds together with the greatest Industry and pa tience; and not till It Is complete does he seek Ids companion. All tldsthne the female haa kept aloof, neither assisting her companion nor encouraging him by her presence in the work of nidlllcation. lint now she Is induced to visit the home of her future progeny, and the tabors of the exemplary parent are redoubled. When the minute' eggs arc laid, he collects them In Ids mouth, and places them carefully within the nest, which lie continually supports with fresh bubbles, lest the precious‘cargo should over weight it. When all Is safe, he stations himself on guard before the only opening In the nest, atm awaits the course of events, ready to defend Ids handiwork against all comers, while his hotter-half retires altogether from the scene. In about three days the eggs begin to hatch out. The parent flsh then destroys a number of the supporting air-bubbles, causing the neat to sink deeper into the water, so that none of the young ones may bo ‘drowned’ for want ol water. As long as he can, he prevents them from escaping from the paternal roof,—the title is hardly appropriate, however, for neither father nor mother has Inhabited the house,—but their strength rapidly Increases, and, just as hoys and girls leave home to better themselves, the young Rainbow-Fish burst from the father’s apron-strings and are soon ufulting hi their ucw-fouud freedom." SCIENTIFIC APPARATUS. Saturday, Mny 13, the “Special Loan Collec tion of Scientific Apparatus ” nl the South Ken sington Museum, London, was formally opened hy the Queen. The collection embraces twenty one different departments, fu which 15,000 ob jects arc displayed by 1,000 exhibitors. The countries represented arc the United Kingdom, the Austro-Ilungnrlun Empire, Belgium, France. Germany, Holland, Italy, Norway, Russia, ami Switzerland. Spain is expected to contribute to llio Exhibition, but the United States will not be represented. The “ Centennial ” 100 exclusively employs the energies of our nation. Two volumes, comprising together nearly 1,000 pages, have been prepared ns guides to the collection. One of these contains merely n descriptive list of titles, but the other presents a “series of descriptive and historical articles on the various sections, by some of the most eminent living British men of science. In value,” says Xature, “ the Handbook should be nut alongside the Admiralty Manual is sued to the Arctic Expedition: though proba bly no such unique collection of scientific me moirs was ever before put within reach of the public.” _ SOUTH-AUSTRALIAN FLORA., From a brief notice in Aafiirr of “The Flora of South Australia,” we learn that “The most pre dominant natural orders in the Colony are ffumlnastr, Jfyrtacece, Compotllce, J'roUacea , Cm~ ci/erlcr, Jinbiacca , and Grauduta. Tiie genera and species arc remarkably circumscribed In area; many arc found in one spot alone. The Colony is singularly devoid of native edible fruits and roots; on the other hand, It produces übdndiim-e of valuable timber trees, and of plants suitable for the manufacture of paper anil other llhres, and for the production of ayes; hut most of the valuable crops are naturalized plants, Intro duced from Europe or other ports of thu world.” BRIEF NOTES. Late advices from Australia state that M. D’Albertls has been provided by the Governor of Nuw South Wales witti a steam-launch for the exploration of Fly River, New Guinea; and that a meeting had been called at. Sydney to provide for tlio expense of tlio expedition. Dr. T. M.

Divorce In France Tho Paris correspondent of the London Dnttu Ttlffjraph writes to that journal on .Mar 4 : “M. Daniel de Fwllcvlllc, Professor at the University of Doual, Ims just publbhedupamphlct entitled A Muni on the I‘rlnccst de liauffremont'a Cme, which is likely to do more toward advancing thu question of divorce in France thou miy of M. Alexandre Dumas’ recent works. M. De Folle- Vlllo considers that a wife who I* legally separat ed from her husband has a right to become naturalized in a country where divorce is au thorized by the law, »ud then to take advantage of ll to marry again. lie gives very sound arguments in support of his opinion, which is shared by many distinguished jurisconsult* and iu course of tlmo must make its way into thu French code. Tho sail case of the Princess de liaulfremont has revived the discussion on divorce, and public opinion bus very generally taken up thu Princess* side of the question. Nevertheless, were sho to return to France at present, sho would at oncu be arrc|tcd and prosecuted for bigamy and adulter)-. The Princess’ conduct during thu war was admirable. Before leaving Paris with her mother, the Princess do Chhnuy, whose advanced age and delicate state of health would not allow her to undergo tho hardship of the siege, Mine.

EVANS-CALLAGIIAN. The Petition for a Writ of Quo Warranto Denied, On tho Ground that There Has Been No User of tho Offleo. Had Thero Hern, a Frlmn Fade Case Would Haro Been Made Out. •fudge Moore, sitting in tho Criminal Court yesterday, delivered his decision In the case of the application of Michael Evans fora writ nf quo warranto against Iternard Callaghan, Col lector nf youth Chicago. Tho prayer of the petitioner Is denied. The decision Is substan tially ns follows: After slullng that the Court must ho satisfied that probable ground for tho application exists, tho Judge goes over the familiar facts In tho case, and then says: According to well-settled practice, In this State anil elsewhere, the defendant has produced and Hied ex-parto nfthla*iln containing tho probable ground relied upon by the petitioner. The proof thus made conduces to show that fraud was prac ticed ol the election by persons other than Evans. This evidence Is of such n character as entitles It to the highest consideration, and yet some of the most important witnesses may lie mistaken tn what they honestly believe and state they saw. On the other hand, some of the witnesses who arc Introduced to sustain the view taken by the relator must know the truth; and if their testimo ny bo true, then some witnesses Introduced by tho respondent must be mistaken. If tho vntiU-door was opened, ns la claimed by the respondent, then tho«c who claimed to be keeping watch must have known It. They sny It was not so opened. It is not. however, necessary at thin since of the case (a determine the truth. The petition need not .mnkooutnu undoubted case. It must show only probable ground. If, at this stage nf tho case, doubt exists as to the rights of the parties. It should be resolved In favor of the relator. Tho Invariable course Is to allow tho Information In lie (lied where a question of law or fact In tn dispute and doubtful. Leave to flic the Information Is not granted ns t matter of course, when asked, but de pends upon tho sound discretion of tho Court. It will, however, usually be granted where the right, or the fact on which the right depends, is disputed and doutfu). This is (he view mentioned by tho relator, and tt Is a view so well sustained by au thority and precedent that It cannot at this day be questioned. If, then, this application depended only upon the question ns to whether there was a fair election on the first Tuesday of April,—lf the application depended on the question as to whether at the time of the appointment by the Town Hoard there wn* a vacancy In the olllcc of Town Collector, It must be determined In favor of the ap plication: and for the purpose of this motion It must he determined that prlina fade tho election was fair, and there was no vacancy to be filled by an appointment. If the user was averred and ad mitted, and nontherquestion was raised at this stage of the case, then leave would be granted to file the Information. In order that an Issue of fact might be made and tried, and the right of tho de fendant to this ofilcc determined either for or against him, as the truth might require. The next inquiry considered is, whether the user Is averred. The various averments are stated ami the authorities cited on the point of user discussed In order to see If Callaghan Is actually “usurping” or “using” the uillcu. The petition. It is said, relies upon tiie fact that tho defendant hail taken tiie oath pre scribed by the Constitution, us the act, tiie fact that constituted user; that that amounted to taking possession of the ufllcc. From the authorities cited, it Is found that the Court will deny the request made for leave to tlio tlio Information. unless His made to appear that thu de fendant had taken actual possession of the olllce, mid unless it appears that he has not merely ac cepted tlio olllce. He must have used thu office, lie must have done something that manifests an actual use. In this connection it must be ascertained wlmt may be required by the law of this Slate. Howls a Town Collector inducted inloofficc? How docs he take the possession of the office? Wlmt must he do in order that it may be said lie Ss in thu office, and that he is using the officer TUB WHIT DENIED. The various statutory requirements arc staled and the following conclusion arrived at: Before the Collector enters upon (no duties of his office, before he can use the office, before bo ran possess lim office, before he can hula or execute thu duties of the office, tiiu Collector must give the bond and take the prescribed oath. U is not pretended that thu defendant has either given or ollcred to give any bond required by law. The de fendant may yet be deemed to have refused to serve as Collector, ns It has been found from tlio statute * ‘ that if he does not give such security amt take such oath within the prescribed time, such neglect inuv be deemed n refusal to serve. ” If ho thus neglects, then no harm results to any one,and no one has any wrong of which to complain. * * Such neglect snail be deemed a refusal to serve, ” —that is to say, such neglect shall amount to a failure to possess or use the office. From ail these considerations,—from tlio fact that the information cannot bo allowed, unless there be a user by tlio defendont, and from the fact that there can be no user until thu party shall have given the required bond, mid until ho shall have taken the prescribed oath, therefore thu prayer of the petition In this behalf for leave to die an information in tiie nature of a quo warranto in the namo of the people of thu State of Illinois Is denied. Thereupon u bill of exceptions was filed, uml au appear taken to the Supreme Court. The work of making up the Collector’s hooks cannot he begun until September, since it In (liirlntr that month that tho CuminihHloncrfl de cide on (ho lunuunt of tuxes to bo raised for county purposes. To make them out requires some, time, uml the County Clerk is given until ten days from Dec. Ito deliver thorn. Thu Col lector is not required to give tils bond until within eight days after hu has learned tho amount of taxes to be collected, which will probably bo sumo time in November. Halt Mountains In Houthrrn Nevada. San Francium Chrwlrte, Beginning ll miles up the Virgin River, moun tains of salt extend for 2k) or morn miles uo the Virgin and .Muddy Rivers, in Nevada. There are openings now made from 0 to 110 miles up tho Virgin River at different places. From I) to Hi mites up, those openings uncover a species of dark gray salt, W per centum pure, presenting to the casual observer the appearance of common coorsu gray granite. These openings are all on tho east side of tho Virgin River, from one fourth to one-half mile from its hanks. At a point 20 miles up the river, and on its western slue, is a mountain of pure while crystallized salt, white as the driven snow and transparent almost os glass. It is at oneu a pleasing mid interesting K|>ec-taclu to seo the great musses of erystai-llku salt us thrown out by uH or -1 foot blast. These pure and beautiful blocks resemble somewhat blocks of the purest leu when prepared for thu leediouse. On placing a mass 0 inches thlc-k over a column of tho Ohrunkle the lino print could las read easily. Thq formation of the salt deposit is no doubt very ancient, dat ing hack in yenfs beyond computation. Long since tho de|M)slt was made thu great upheavals and carlhquaku era have occurred, which have changed the whole appearance of the country for great distances around. These salt idutfs or mountains can lie Identified for a long dis tance by the peculiar color of the surface, which Is of re'ddlsh or orange color. Underneath tills formation, as well us in It, is a peculiar kind of micaceous sedimentary granite. Another very interesting natural curiosity visited mid exam ined here is a natural suit well, a mile northwest of the ferry, it Is on aJiiesu, which extends up and down tho river on fls northern hank. This mesa is adrift formation formed of small pels* hies and bowlders mixed with earthy matter. The well is a large eireular opening in tho mesa, some 2UXJ feet In circumference, with abrupt descent to the surface of tho well, which is 50 feet below the surface. The water is exceedingly salt, far more so than any salt spring, and lias been sounded to a depth of IhOfeet. It Is u splendid natural salt-huth, in which tho bather floats almost as buoyantly as a cork upon u pool of water. 1 * A Pleasant Htory. The Boston correspondent of the Worcester npy relates the following : 44 A lovely story of city uelghborliness touched me the other day, and so T tell it to you. A young lady carried some gilt to a small hospital nearly opposite her own house. Bhe was pitiful and symoathetle, and soon found that two of the Invalid women took great comfort In looking Into the lighted sitting-room of her own home, and seeing nil tho pleasant family life there, and they were sorryjwhen the shades shirt out the sight. After that, oil winter lung, the shades were left up until the hospital patients were In bed, and they grew very fond of that friendly group whom they knew In no other way, but who were so will ing to do their part toward 4 setting the solitary In families.'" A Painted Prisoner. IhtrnU Stirs. A man named Frederick HelmlngcrcmnmlttcA several acts of barii-burnlngund larceny lust fcrtl out near Wayne, fur which he was tried In the Wayne Circuit Court and sent to Jackson State Frloott for llfteen years. Arriving there, he was assigned to work hr tho paint-shop. One day recently, when his overseer Was nut watching him personally, ho daubed himself with light brown paint, and then jumped Into u large tub uf the same liquid, (bawling out, be waited a moment, for the paint to drain oif, and then slipped out of the shop Into the yard, unnoticed by tho overseer. As soou tu ho reached tho yard he fttnrted on tho run for a gateway lending Into tho .• street, at the same lime giving the 1 most hides mis of Indian yells. Tho guard on duty at the gate, Instead nf ln-comlng frightened, calmly awaited his approach. As llclinlngcr neared tho guard he made a desperate spring toward him, evidently intending to overpower him with his momentum. The guard, a cool six-footer, stepped back a few paces, and dealt him a lloenun-Ilko blow squarely between tho eyes, which sent Mm sprawling upon his hack wllh ns much force ns he came. Ilelmlnger’s nose was badly broken and Ms eyes are entirely elosed, ami the guard had two knuckles driven back. Helmtnger thinks the terrors of the In dian warriors and their yells that we read about In the tales of early American life are all fiction,' and calculated to ndslcadtlicmliulsof the rising generation. UR. COBLEIGH’S MOVING. The Effect of Living Next Door to n Second- Adventist, I Diintiurv S'tirt. Mr. Coblclgh moved on the Ist of May. Wo were going through North street when we met him with the Insignia of the aetupon him, viz., a looking-glass, cluck, and lamp. If we had suddenly discovered our own family moving wo could not have been more astonished. Ho had lived In the house whence ho was moving for at least eight years, Hu sat tho lamp on a fence, and propped the clock and looking-glass against the same. t “ You nro surprised to see me at this!" he said with an anxious louk. We admitted ns much. “I little expected It at one time myself." And he sighed drearily. “Any trouble with the landlord!” “No, no." “With the house then!" “Oh, no; good landlord, and good house. I don't know If I’ll ever again find ns good. I’ve lived thero eight years hut fall, and I might’ve lived there all my life If It wasn’t for the (lunged fools in the world.” Wo looked our sympathy. “You see," he went on, “about six months ago one of those eliaps who believe In a series of sudden and unexpected Judgment days— Second Advent they call ’em—moved In next door (where Darker used to live). 110 was u peaceful sort of a man enough to get along with, but ho was a strong Second Advent, and so la Ms wife. Well, they hadn’t lived there two weeks before they got ncqualntml. and began to have revelations." 110 paused and sighed. “ Rut why should .their peculiar religious belief make you dissatisfied with your hutiieC 1 we ventured lo Inquire. • “Why I" ho ejaculated, staring hard at us. “But then you don’t know anytnlng about It. You never lived next door to o Second Advent, perhaps I" “ Not that wo can remember." ' “You’ll remembered It if you had,” liercpllcil, with significant emphasis. “ I’ll never forget my experience. That family got acquainted nitn us, and then It had its revelations. First they borrowed a little sugar, and then a little tea. nml then n little salerutus, und then this ami then that. They said the world was nil going to be burned up In two weeks, und they didn’t feel liku going to the expense of getting n barrel of sugar when eternity was so close, and wouldn’t wo let them have u small teacupful ? We let ’em have It. Then two days after they came In und said that owing to the Immediate approach of the end of all tilings they didn’t tiilnk It advisable to lay in n ton of saleratus, and wouldn’t we just loan them a cupful! My wife didn’t believe, of course, that the world was coming to an end. but she thought the poor critters did, and sue reasoned that when they saw there was no (Ire nor smoke on the day In question they’d pony up willi tlie sugar and saleratus and the hundred and one other things. Hut they wasn’t that kind of Advents. When the time came around and the perform ance didn’t, they professed to have got u sort of postscript with later particulars, and then they come over ns rampant ns ever, and more so. In fact, every fresh disappointment appeared to give them a now xu.l fur victuals und other things, and it got so that they were over every day, and sometimes twice u day, after one tiling or another.” “ But didn’t they return any of the articles?" “Certainly not. If t lie world wusgolng to end what on earth wan we agoing to do with the articles? I couldn’t go through* fire, could I, with the teucupfulfl of saleratus, sugar, tea, etc., hung to me? That’s the way they reasoned. But they'was going to make it nil right on the other shore, was what his wife always said. I told my wife that if we could only get buck 10 per cent of the things on this shorn I’d cheer fully run my chances for the balance when we got over there. Besides nil that, the prospect of so much groceries walling mu on tho other shore began after a while to get very embarrass ing, and 1 kinder hinted to the chap something to this effect, but it did no good. He’d gut that notion bored right into Ids skull, and nlfnu could see was clouds of glory, and angles, mid harps, and my sugar, and saleratus, and coffee, and the like. By George 1 It gut to be just awful, lean tell you 1 Day In ami day out that fellow, or some of Ids folks, was repairing their ascension duds or going fur my groceries, and it did seem us it I’d.go mail mid get up a Judgment-day on my own hook. Why, that chop would couiu on the greatest errands you ever saw. He came fu one day to get rny shaving brush.

Ho came over right away to see If I had another ax. And when I told him I hadn’t ami that I didn’t know how* 1 was to get along without that one, I’m blamed if he didn't want mu to burrow one from some of the neighbors, so he could llnisti the little job lie was at. He said there was no use of my buying a new ax, with the crack of doom staring us fii the face. There’ll bo no use for a new ax in Heaven, for them'd be no jr.ilii there, mi’ no crying, with a lot of other stuff. - This riled me like thunder, tint therp was no use talking to him. 1 was mad, though, about the ax, us mad us 1 could he. and I told him If he didn’t get mo u new* ax I’d bust him In pieces with the right arm of the law. And what do you suppose he said ?” And Mr. Cohlelgh looked at us with grim anxiety. We were obliged to admit that we couldn’t tell. “Ho said he’d go homo and pray forme,” added our friend, with a sigh of despair. “And now what could I do with such a chap ns that! There was no use In getting mod. and you couldn’t reason him out of thu foolishness. And he wouldn't move, and the day of Judg ment allowed no signs of being hi earnest. Bo there I was. Tho only thing I could do was to get away, and I’ve hired a house at tho other end of flic town, mid I’m moving there.

On the lllh of January, 1770, at tho feast of tho Epiphany, there occurred on hoard the French frigate Heron, ns she lay at the pier pre vious to her departure from France, a scene piquant enough to merit recital. All tho officers whose services were not In ac tual demand were promenading the quarter deck, smoking, chatting, and otherwise whiling away the time, when suddenly a young Midship man mounted the gang-plank from thn pier, crying, “Hals off, gentlemen! hats off I—tho Queen approaches.” Yet, strange to say, Marie Antoinette had not quilted Versailles, for at that moment site might have been found In a corner of tho chateau, under the shelter of etiquette, playing high comedy cn famine, tak ing the cue from'Count d’Artols, and having for prompter thn Count do Provence, her brotliers (n-law. She filled tho principal role In “Lo Dcvrln du Village."—Tho Village Soothsayer,— and sang with feeling— J’nl perdu mon scrvltcur J*al perdu tool in on bonhenr—, words which she had occasion aflownrd to re pent often enough,—poor, unfortunate Queen I Who, then, was the usurper I Who, twelve hundred leagues from Versailles, had taken up tho sceptre which tho legitimate Queen had for an Instant abandoned fur a shepherd’s erookl I.et us hasten to ussdro tho reader that there was no imposition, no crime, nor high treason there; the royally that honored tho Heron with its presence was only the fugitive “royalty of tho beau." which, by chance, had fallen to a pretty Orcolu of Martinique, a relative of tho Captain, who.undcr tho charge of an aged aunt, was Journeying lo tho metropolis lu a vnguo search for fortune and Inheritance. In truth, it was to ho regretted tlmtthcyoung Queen was only playing Queen, fur she carried her high and novel honors with a grace which Catharine 11. or Mario Theresa might have envied. “On your knees, beautiful page,” Bald she, addressing the youth who had announced her: “ do you nut see that I have dropped my glove I Approach, my Ministers, and do not smile, for the question to bo discussed is n grave one. 1 love my subjects, and—do you hear f—l desire übovo all tilings that my subjects love me in return; we must, then*.decide as to whether I shall wear a blue or a white rosette to gain their homage. How is this ? It seems that my Prime-Minister permits himself to pull the smoke of tobacco Into the nostrils of his sover eign In lieu of Incense.” And thus, with a thousand Innocent sallies, with a thousand little cuouctries, did she cause the old sailors to laugh so heartily ami long that the Are of their pipes died out, anil they forgot to light them. Hut one who seemed to enjoy the sport more than the rest was Pierre Hello, a native of Breton, an old with more sears than wrinkles, who upon tiiat very morning had re ceived u medal of honor.—a tardy acknowledg ment of his lung service.—and who, fur that reason, had been admitted as u guest to the Captain's table for the day. Mario Bose, as the little Indy was called, listened breathlessly to the wonderful stories related by the old man-of-war's-mnn, and had complimented and caressed him until the heart of the old sailor palpitated with ns much emotion nt the praises of ttds young beauty as at the moment when lie received his medal. He alone waited upon her, and. indeed, upon him devolved the entire care of the child, owing to the fact of her aunt’s being a sulterer from gout and unable to leave her comfortable chair, where she spout most of her time reading the life of her favorite saint, Augustine, only looking up, from time to time, to cry, “This way, Minetlc! this way, Mario Hosel” ns she saw her cat or her niece chasing a sunbeam. Hut Marie Rose, with that daring and perfect freedom possessed by most young' girls of her age, one moment would climb up the cordage, balancing herself on the ropes, while brave ricrre watched from below, ready to catch her in his arms should she bo blown down to the deck, or to Jump overhonm should she fall into the sea. Then, tiring of that, she would amuse the unemployed olllccrs or men with n song or dance, until attentive Viorru seemed suddenly to have found Intelligence enough to compre hend tiie verses and appreciate the grace of the little el/. The day following that of her mock coronation, Marie Hose seemed sad nml dispir ited, and her old friend Fierro was at a loss to know* whut trouble affected ids favorite. She, observing his questioning looks, took him lulu her coDllilenco, nml 'told him her sadness was caused by a prediction made to her by an old negress, said to ba a witch, who lived In the forest near her home, and to whom Marie Hose hud been in the habit of secret ly bringing food. The words of the prophecy being so strange, the child fully re membered them. They were os follows: “Good little missy, mo saw* in the night a great bird mount up—up—very high In tho air, with u rose In Its beak. Vou are that rose; you will be very unhappy—you will be a Queen—then comes great tempest, and you perish.” “And yester day,” said she, “I was Queen, and now I am expecting the tempest which Is to carry me away.” “Never fear, mademoiselle,” replied Pierre; “if anything happens to the Heron, you have only to seize hula of my belt,—like this, see!— mm, with the help of God and tny patron saint, you will b« towed ashore as gently as a sloop u three-master I” Marie Hose, someylmt reassured by tbo words of honest IMcrrc, rewarded him by singing u song the words of width embodied the propheey of the old negress. But hers was an ngo when melancholy thoughts impress thu mind hut lightly, uml thu following day she was dancing ns gayly ns ever, utterly unmindful of thu no* gress mid her weird prophecy.- Days mid weeks passed without wearing away thu high spirits of thu child, but. nlusl not without wearing her little siioes. The last skip of a fnrandolo carried away the fragment of thread whjeh held them together; and, the wardrobe of thu Indies being very scant (they having delayed purchasing until their arrival lu Paris), poor Marie Hose was soon forced to spend tier time seated by the side of her aunt, hiding her little huru feet In thu folds of her dress, nolo only to move her head.—thu loss of her shoes holding her captive, like the Princess In thu story, awaiting the coming of u cavalier to deliver her. Thu cavalier came in the person of Plcrru Hello. “Allow such pretty feet to go bare I" said he. Indignantly. “ Ono must he without heart.” lint IT. as the poet says, indignation makes poetry, it does not follow that it can make shoes. Pierre reflected and scratched Ids head, turn ing Ids quid from cheek to check. The quid is to the mind of Iho sailor as the hands arc to a clock; when the mind is working, thu quid is turning. And Plcrru had undertaken to think out a problem dllilcuU even to a mathematician,—to make something out of nothing,—a problem Unit (Jchl ulonu has determined. “A piece of leather! My nine and my medal for a piece of leather!” erica Pierre (liftc Rich ard for a horse). He searched all over the ship, and peered Into every crevice where even a mouse might have been concealed, when suddenly he gave il cry of Joy,—a cry such us might have come from u ilarpagoii when he found his treasure, or Rous seau on discovering a new plant. Rut It was neither flower nor treasure that Plcrru had dis covered: it was something of more value In ids eyes. It was a bool I—the hoot of a soldier who had been killed during u gale. And this hoot had been tossed aside, no one knows how, while Its mate was lying at the bottom of the sea, or perhaps In thu stomach of a shark; thinking, like the rat of La Fontaine, ttiat the tilings of earth concerned it not. Rut Plcrru Hello decided otherwise. With the assistance of Ids knife, in lieu of an uwl, he cut and shaped, In the course of an hour, that which we should he glad to call a pair of shoes, Imt cntulor forbids. What he did make vroa not exactly shoe or slipper, buskin or moccasin; It was something entirely new In the art of shoemaklng, some thing original aad without a name: neverthe less, u thing perfectly secure and fully reliable us a protection for the feet. When they were finished, brave Pierre hastened with the ottering to hi* little mistress, and, amid much laughter and great coaxing, persuaded her to put them on; then, placing her on the Hour, he stood with arms akimbo, and admiringly exclaimed, “ Volla! ” An hour later she was dancing away with a weight on each foot, to the vigorous applause of her admirers, having gained a double victory, for there was lu this dance a combination of art uml strength; It was TagUoul and Madame tfaqul lu one body. At last, after a long voyage, the good ship ar rived ut Its destination, and tuo time came for them to disembark. The leave-taking of the little Creole uml the old sailor was really touching. 44 1 will never forget you, and I will keep your shoes us a toiiwi/r, us a relic,” said Marie lloee. trying to console I’lerrc, who passed the hack of his rough hand across his eyes, which looked suspiciously moist. “Oh, no!” responded*he, sadly shaking Ids head; “you are going to Purls, where you will soon forget your old friend und your little shoes.” • , 44 1 will -never forget,” she repeated, as she was led away by heruunt, but continued looking hack as long as Plerro was lu sight. But Pierre Hello never knew whether she kept her word or not, as lie was killed In an aetluu uot many months later. Hut what of Uarlo Kosal lu the midst of our story comes tho great French Hcvolutlou; a flood of war oad canwge, which wo will not dwell upon, lint, closing our eyes, pus* on to the time of the Empire, and proceed nt niico to tlio home of the noble hut unfortunate Jowplilne, n widow In the eyes of the law, caused hy n local separation from Nn polcnn.hut still im Empress, and still adored liv the French people, who hud nut approved of the divorce, flitting In an apartment of the palace, her arm resting carelessly on her piano, she was listening with n smile (» a group of young ladies-oMmnor who were soliciting permission to give some charades In costume nt the chateau. “With pleasure, my dill* dren,” snld the kind Josephine; “I will even see to It that the costumes are furnished. Thanks to the generosity of the Emperor, my own wardrobe Is all-sullhleut; see what u mer chant Inis Just sent me I” and carelessly she spurned with her foot n magnlllcenlly-embrold crcd ruhe which lay upon the Hour. Tlie garment was (ft heimllful that the young est of the Indies, enthusiastically clapping her hands, cried out: “ Heaveual hut your Majesty must ho verv linppyl” “ Happvl f ’ murmured JoEophlnc, with n sigh; “ yes, very happy.” She seemed lust lu thought for a moment; then, throwing olt the memories which op pressed her, she arose, saying, “Follow me. Indies, and select your costumes.” Followed hy the thoughtless throng, she entered the room where her wardrobe was kept. The eyes of the young ladies opened as wide ns did those of the wood-chopper** son when tin entered the cave of All Baba, nt the wonders of lace and llnery exposed to ttietr gaze; everything that art could furnish and money procure was there. “Take your choice, my children,” said the generous Empress; “amuse yourselves In se lecting from nil the beautiful dresses which dnrzlo you so. You are free to take anything you Dml, with one exception, and that is too sacred for any one to touch. But,” she contin ued, seeing the curiosity depleted In their faces, “I may show you this wonderful treasure.” You may Imagine how the minds of those young girls were affected. What new wonder were they to behold I Could it he possible that anything more precious than what they had al-* ready beheld could exist? Smiling at the won der she had herself created in their minds, she slowly drew from the comer of her JtweJ-case, not a present, of Na poleon, not tho gift of a gent, hut tho handiwork of Pierre Hello,—the little shoes of Marie Rose,—for you have guessed ere now that the Empress Josephine and the little barefooted dancer are one and the same person.

Correnponilenct »m }'ork H’or/rf. Bt. John’s, May 17.—Our lical-llshevy for 1870 la now wound up, nnd It proves to he one of the heat wo have ever had. For a eomilderahle time wo were In the depths of despondency about the results. For seven weeks the bitter cast wind blew, driving the huge Ice-llclih upon our shores, lining all the baya mid harbors with lee. nnd creating a solid Ice-pack which no vessel could penetrate till around the coasts, Thu scallng-llcet were arrested within sight of the harbor, nml held powerless in the grasp of the frost king. Thus matters stood, and wo antici pated n (Ummtnms llshery. Hut Nature has her own way of doing things, and does not mind our grumbling. Our hunters could not gut to the seals, lying In their ley cradles, rocked by ttie heaving billows of the Atlantic, but all the while the oast wind was gently floating the “white coats” within reach of the hunters, till at length they wore separated from some ilctuch inenta of them only by a few miles. A change of wind came at lust, a relaxation of the lee took place, ami the hunters sprang upon their prey. Still they did not come up with the great body of the seols, only with scattered herds, so that no steamer got a “bumper trip,” though many did well on their llrst voyage. The largest num ber brought lu was by the steamer Bear—2o,- 000 seals, worth three times as many dol lars. Others got 10,000, 10,000, 10,000 each. The most lucky hit of all was made by the Mer lin, an old, worn-out steamer which was pur chased hy her present owner, A. M. MaeKuy, agent of the Anglo-American Telegraph Com pany, for SIB,OOO lust year. She was pinned In near the shore by the lee-pack, hut the seals came around her, and she got us many as she could lend—lo,ooo prime seals, value SIB,OOO. 1 may remark that the seals tills year wore not taken till In their full-grown stage, nnd conse quently were, on an average, 20 per cent hotter than hi other years. 8o soon ns the steamers unload their cargoes of fat they start again for the ieo-tlehls oti a second hunting excursion. On this trip they rarely capture many young ' seals, as they have taken to the water about the Ist of April; hut they pursue the old seals, sometimes shooting them on the “ pans “ of lee, sometimes falling in with a herd of them jammed lu the ice nml unable to escape, and “batting” them In multitudes. This year will he memorable lu the annals of seal-killing by the wonderful success of second trips and the vast number of old seals brought In* Let us follow tiie fortunes of the steamer Neptune as an Illustration of the romantic side of eeal-ktlllng. Hhe did hut moderately well on her llrst trip, having brought in only 8,000 seals, value S‘M,OOO. On her second trip she got caught in an lee-puck in Green Buy, and vainly tried to escape. When there the men were sent out over the lee-llehls, ami some of them wan dered so far us 10 miles from the steamer. At this spot a huge herd of old scuts was discover ed caught lu the pack nml unable to escape. The men returned to the ship with the welcome news, and the whole crew*. !luo In number, form ed themselves into Hue, like soldiers charging, ami rushed on their prey. The work of de struction by striking them on the noho with a long club called a “gulf ” was eugurly.pursucd, umTut the end of four hours 18,000 great seals lay dead within a small area. But how were they to he got on hoard, the vessel being 10 miles distant) To drag them over the lee was Impossible. Well, by one of those rare pieces of good fortune which sometimes befall the hunter, the gras]) of the Ice relaxed,—the east wind ceased to press from the outside, and next morn ing the steamer was able to get alongside the slaughtered seals and all were easily put on hoard. The striking thing, too, was that laid they nut been killed on that particular after noon the whole would have escaped next morn ing through the openings in the ice. Thcaveragn value of an old harp seal Is $0; so that the value of this cargo was SIOB,OUO. This Is the most valuable cargo of seals ever taken in Newfoundland. Tills single steamer thus earned $102,000 lu a little over two months. The one-third goes among the men; the Cap tain wiß get $4,000 fur hU share; the remainder belongs to the owners. Several other steamers have arrived with good trips of old seals. Thu Wolf has 8,100; Hanger, 7.000; Wal rus, 8,800; Greenland, 4,1500. The Van guard ami Commodore are also said to have fair trips, but are not reported. When one remem bers that every old seal Is worth s(*. the value of these united cargoes is very considerable. Thu weight In fat of the Neptune’s cargo Is BT>O tons. Ail the Captains unite hi declaring that they never saw the souls mure numerous, so that to all appearances our seal-fishery presents as yet no signs of exhaustion. But I should like to hear what I’rnf. Baird W'ould say to this de struction of tliu young ones. It seems Bin- kill lug tiie goose that (ays the golden eggs. But It Is lu vain to enact restrictions when men are out in those Ice solitudes and herds of seals around. Not till unmistakable signs of an exhaustion ap pear will wo get the killing of old seals prohib ited. Meantime, however, “all Is serene/’ 1 have not yet related the whole of our good fortune this year. Xbe best wine remains to tins lust. The persktent east wind drove the great body of the voung seals up the buys and in upon Islands and bead-lands on our northern coast, thus bringing them within reach of the settlers ashore. Thu whole population of these places rushed out and shuigiitered and drugged the seals osltbrtf. “ Young men and maidens, old men and children,” were eagerly engaged in the work. Nuwa arrived boiuc time ago that in two lo raUtiea. TwlUlngulc urul Fogo, 100,000 Bcalo hint been tUKOit tu tills way—value, tHUU,UOO.
