The flames burst from every window, and for more than half an hour ibe scene was truly magnificent, and, not withstanding the Intense cold, thousands con gregated to uehold it.

CANVASSING FOR LIFE INSU RANCE.

ClheTs, again, believed that the taking outofa policy would have a tendency to shorten the life of the party In whose lavor it was firi’rn— in tills respect exhibiting the sarao high order of Intelli gence that is shown by the originals who are cer »eln ibot the making or olsri will andto ument (« ncecf-satily latal to the lire ot the t-stator. Oc- CRficntliy the presence oi a policy in a dwelling bouse lea to family difficulties: a< for instance, in ihiicasoof a young woman who had been fortu nate enough to many an elderly gentleman of considerable means. Tbe old gentleman fearing that he might lose his fortune in business specu lations, aud wishing to make dne provision for Ms handsome bride, took out a policy for (5.003, ami, upon going home, threw It into her lap, say- Irp, as he did so. “There my dear, if I tall to morrow, and die tbe next day, you will have a competence tor Ilf-.” Tbo young wife, supposing the ponderous document was cot more than one degree removed from a death.warrant. iosts>ed that eh* did i ot want It in tbe houV*, and told her husband that she was surprised at him for ttltiklng that she wes anxious to attend his funeral; and the results of the affair were—with hvstcrlcs on one sMe. and scold- inp on the other for several days—that the poller was destroyed, and the amount of premium paid uron it wa*s counted a total loss. W Ithln abont five years, however* the insurance business has paid remarkably well; presidents. secret*rie> and other officers receiving handsome sa arfes, acd the annual balance sheets showing satisfactory dividends. A large share ot this pros* rally is One to outside agerts or canvassers, who receive a percentage on all policies which they are Instrumental In securing. Some canvassers make . a specialty of the business fiom one ycat's end to another, and make a handsome living out of it; others, on the contrary, become disheartened alter a few dare' trial, and abandon the business in a genu* Ine state ol disgust, perfectly satisfied that they bare mistaken their calling. A canvasser bag no business whatever with sensitive feelings, and if not able to take a dozen rcbnils every day, and to laugh at every one of them, he had belter nant up more congenial employment. The successful ones are. to a certain extent, " ease lardened," acd when sharp answers ire given them they charge the subjtct fora minute ortwo, wliha view of getting thetr customer! lack to good humor; and, this point earned, they immediately return to the question of Hie in surance, and coolly argue Its advantages from their own stand-point. If a gentleman, to whom oneoftbexnhas applied, gives a direct refusal, the canvasser bids him good morning or after* noon in a style Dial would have done credit to Beau Hickman In Ms best days, and returns In a day or two. saying in the blandest manner con ceivable, “1 just tnoaght I w onld drop tn and see if you had changed your mind about that policy we were talking of the last Ume 1 waa here." Ills manner la so gentlemanly and self-possessed that the partv vho Was more than hair disposed to order him off the premises a couple of days before, allows him self to be drawn tmo a Irlcr.dly conversation, and very likely asks the canvasser to give him another ca'l at bis leisure. If *>, the canvasser is sure of Ills point, acd a? he leave* the ?place he solllo quire* something after this style: “HI get him to take the policy next time 1 see Mm; good thing, wasn't It, that 1 didn't get mad when I was there flrati" And bis satisfaction, iu knowing tKat be has kept Us laap-’r, and is on the point of gaining his object does him as much good a* he expects to derive from the receipts or bis share of the anticipated premium. Another good card la played in this manner; Ibe canvasser goes to a dwelling house, and. as h expects. 1* told that the head of the family u do* u town or up town, or over (he river. 1( to* viicd to ell down and wait for the return of the gentleman of the bouse, he accepts the imitation, ard ccmmeoccs withcnl a moment's delay to make love to the baby. Ever since that particu lar 1-aby was bom, iu mother has, of course, be lieved In ils superiority over every ether taby in the State, bnt after the canvas >cr has done praising it, rhe feels ccosldcrahly annoyed wlthberaclf for overlooking numerous peiftctiocs. vbich.previouriv invisible. Vet now pointed out bra stranger, add Ivtotbc Inapproachable beauty of that “dear, blessed bab*. The canvasser, satisfied with the edict which betas prodcreA. makes his business krowr, and says be has not lime to wait for the gviitlemiu's return; but he accepts the lady's In vilallon to “tail again when hsr hnsbvna’a at heme," and the chanc s of fu*ni«h‘ng the husband ulihapollcy arc greatly ta his favor. In case ot his success In this particular is gener ous enough to give the Vabv ill the credit which it Is cntlt-ed to for helping Mm along ta the trans ection Cut the business is not so profitable for can tatters as formerly, u has in many places boon merdose, acd none but the rao-t expert stand UjP least ch*n<v of making anvthlag more than a hare subsistence. Mill, some dr*t<ts» can vassers make very good wages—better, perhaps than Ihcv could at anv other employment requir ing no ‘capital and the same amount o r labor. Then there are'other* who might be courted as belonging to the Brst-dass men who are on the go from hrcakfa«t tlmellU a late hour in the evening, whose weekly receipts, when summed up on Sa’ordav night, suggest to the recipients that they are doing no better than when they workedbv the day for starvation wage*. Seme * canvasser* arc engaged la other btuU-eis, to which thev de vote a portion of the r Ume. and make tiriwanee a secondary consideration. The re*ait Is about as encouraging a« waa arrivea »t by the MsckrmUb, who put more Iron* in the tire than he was ab'e to manage, TJ*c every other kind of busltcss, that of life Insurance canva««lng ie tinirea close attention and bard labor.

Tbe complaining "vic tim " was one John C. IferkL who stated tnat be was a and waa a porter for Ihe Wis consin Bouse, a hotel not very widely known, lo cated at No. I'JI Van Bures street. John tried to be a policeman for a short Time, but proved to he eminently unfit for the po sition. and waa sP sight way discharged. For t«o weeks past he boa been earning hie board at the "Wisconsin flocae," by “run ning" for it at the can and securing the patronage of the emigrants. Friday night some oi the trains were belated, and when Merki was retiming from the Galena depot, Els condition appears to have been somewhat more than salubrious. Tbe uight was cold, and, to keep bis aiilrits up,-ho tnd poured spirits down. Instead of returning to tho hotel, about four o'clock yesterday morning he sought admission to tie house of Marla Severance. Be told them he was a railroad conductor, and that be had been a po liceman. Do wanted to remain only two or three hours, and he did so, the two girls first mcutlon-id sharing hu society. About se'en o'clock, when he was getting ready to leave, he alleged th*r he had been robbed of bis money, fllsu m green backs and a certificate of deposit for SM), Ibe property of one William Teadll, a Canadian, un acquainted with tbe wiles and stratagems or cji~ sharpers, who had placed tho money in Mt-rkl’s hands for safe keeping. This mcney waa enclosed In a little flannel sack, and' iletkf said he bad it npon bis person when he re tired; sow be hadn't ft: thcreforehe was robbed. Tbe girl* entirely denied any kno 'ledge of It, and bade him examine bis pockets and clothes In the most searching manner. Thl* be seemed to do. Lnt no money was found; whereupon he waxed vrry wroth, and was going to have the girls ar rested and punished to the full extent of the law, and he went so far as to intimate that he coold use a pistol which be had, with most shocking damage to any one who Inter tered with his pnrposes. Miss Severance was called and she at once sent for a policemen. Merki wasvery anxious to leave the house at once upon tho same errand, be alleged, but they refused to let him go—the matter should be Inves tigated then and there, and if the girls bad stolen it they should be punished. The officer* came but found no money and the "household" was as rested and taken before the P-.lice Court. Up on an examination of tbe case there appeared to be to evidence azalcst the girls and all were dis charged : bnt tho unfortunate ilcrkl was arrested and charged with larceny. This "change of base" old not aocm to surprise him greatly, hut he prcslstcd in saying that he bad lost the money. He was committed for tml in lull ol (9t). He was takes down stain to a private room and thoroughly searched, (.occealoiodoiv two shins npon hi* left shoulJ'T was found the little flannel sick containing (in In Government notes and the certificate of depodt tor $2Ol. One of the officers who searched him : staled that a moment before be found tbe money Merki exclaimed, "1 am lost." and seemed In clined to fall upon his knees. He was again taken before tbe Police Court chitiycd with per jury and committed tur trial In bail of SI,OOO, " buch is lile." LODGINGS WANTED.

Daring the summer these pariahs sleep under side* walks. In alleys, sheds and rnthouses—in any place where they chance to find au obscure nook; and It they are somewhat used to vagabondage, they experience no great inconvenience or loss of ship. But wbemhedays login to shorten, and the nights to prow lone and cold, their troubles Incicare, end the bitter nights of midwinter bring more 01 suit'eiinis and exposure to the homeless ones than many {of our comfortably homed citi zen# can Imagine. The winter also increases the number of the shelterless by producing a stagnation and stop* page in many branches uf Industry, and throwing outof employment many who have managed to Itxe till then from hand to month, but now have neither money nor employment to depend upon. Hlr.ce the present severe weather began the police stations bare received large numbers of this class who are picked cd between daylight and morning by the police, as they arc skulking around look* leg for bhelUT In the roar of buildings, or about public places, or who find their way voluntarily to the s’alion bouses and beganigU'*B lodging.

Industrious men arevery rarely found in ihcsc circumstances here, lor labor and good wages can generally be obtained by those who prove themselves reliable and ready to work. Consequently the character of tacac seekers alter ‘•furnished lodgings’' is generally of a low grade. Frequently a man Is found In the bitterest night* lying In the getter, senseless from the effect of (liink, aril his blood fast congealing In bis velus. VTllbont the aid of onr vigilant ponce many a hu man being would freeze to death in our streets by nlgM. Very miserable and ho.•ekes is the appearance of these poor creature*.

Bow Reptiles are Fed at the London Zoological Gardens. George Guyon, in the Science Gossip, gives a curious account of the feeding of tbe .snakes In tb* London Zoological Gardens: “As probably not many of my readers bare witnessed the operation of feeding tbe reptiles at tbe Zoological Gardens, perhaps a short account of what was seen daring a visit a few weeks ago, may be interesting. It must be premised that the sight is not altogether an agreeable one: but, notwith standing, It seemed to exercise a sort of fas cination over tbe spectators, and some la*, dies, who kepi expressing their horror and disgust, were nevertheless as eager as any to etc all that was going on. One might go there many times without seeing the opera tion, as these creatures are only fed once a week; or, as the keeper said, ‘all Fridays In the year except Good Friday.* “It was quite by accident that I happened v uUt the reptile bouse a few minutes be- to enter the reptile bouse a few fare the feeding commenced, which was late in tbc afternoon. Before beginning:, the keeper locked the door, apparently to pre vent persons from crowding in, as not mauy can see well at tbc same time. lie then brought supplies to the different kinds of prev, and cast them Into the serpents’ dens, ihc’doomcd animals being young rabbits, young utlec, white mice, ducks, lowls, spar* rows and frogs, which wore distributed to salt the size of the various snakes, except the Dogs, which were provided for the aquatic species. “ The large lw»a constrictors. Into whose cose three rabbits, grown specimens, were introduced, seemed the principal attraction, but their mightinesses were in no hurry to dine. As‘is generally the case after long watching, I was looking at something else, when there was an exclamation, ‘ lie’s got It I’ and I found one of those large snikes was coiled aronnd- a rabbit. The latter, I thought, struggled a little, but It might be fancy; all remained quiet for a few minutes, and then the huge reptile uncoiled himself, and the rabbit lay perfectly dead. The boa showed no inclination to cat his victim, bat gilded about in a languid manner after the other rabbits, who showed little sense of their danger. It was curious to sec them, in happy ignorance, snlllllng at their dead com* panioD, or putting up their noses to a hand held near tie glass. Two ducks were Intro duced into the den of another large boa; or, rather, I believe it was a python, which is the boa constrictor of theold world, and sim ilar in size and habits. •*Ue moved slowly after the birds, which - showed more fear than the rabbits, but made no attempt to seize them. While leaning over the bar to observe better, two or three loud thumps sounded on the class front near my head, and some bystanders expressed fwr lest tbe glass should be broken. The attack was so sudden that it was only when the keeper requested me to keep further back that I was conscious that the big snake preferred me to the ducks. Tbe blows sounded like those of a man’s list, and would probably throw a person down If they took effect. By the quick repetition of the strokes it seemed the reptile wa»slowto learn that the plate glass was too strong for its efforts. 1 regretted afterwards not hav-' lag estimated the size of this python at tbe time, but from memory should imagine It to be nine or ten feet leug. “ Next to these large snakes the venomous kinds scorned to attract most .atecnlion. Some rabbit?, so young as to be almost help, less, were dropped Into the eases of the rattlesnakes and puff adder. They were soon struck, but the venom was much slower Id Its action than I shonld have expected. The bite of both of these species is said to be fatal to man, yet these small animals sur vived about twenty minutes. The bites were effectively given, as In one instance blood oozed from the punctures, and in another it flowed from tnc nose and mouth. 1 paid particular attention to the act of Birikirsr, having understood that oar Eng* Hill viper docs not, strickly speaking, bite— that Ib, docs not close the jaws, but with the mouth wide open, drives In the fanes by a downward stroke of the upper Jaw, like the blow of a hammer. The puff adder, however, appeared to seize Its prey with a momentary grip, leaving go immediately. “A half-grown rabbit was glvcp to another venomous species—l think a ‘horned viper ;* but, though the poor little animal was re peatedly pushed up against the reptile, the latter would not strike. Every effort was made to Irritate it. and it frequently turned round vcogefully, hissing like a small steam engine all the time, hat it would not use its weapons. The 'glass snakes* appeared more ready to feed than most of the o'hera ; mice were* provided for their refection, and one of them disposed ot two or three in rapid sue cession. Shortly after, happening to pass the python’s den, a bang on the glass ap prised me that my Ophidian friend was still bent on making closer acquaintance. “A stout gentleman, woo frequently ex pressed bis antipathy to the whole serpent tribe, took occasion by this fresh attack, to : utter some words of warning, reminding me of the keeper’s ■rcqncat to keep back from the case, and re-marked that the clashes I had on at the time were probably the attrac tion. 1 replied that the reptile was appi rentlv In a slate to strike at anything tbit came* within reach, and two minntes bad scarcely elapsed when my friend, with h’s little boy. crossed in front of the den. the python made a similar blow at him. His alarm wasludicrous; with an exclamation of intense horror be staggered back half a dozen paces: but I fear his activity would have availed little but for the stout plate glass between. The evident desire of this monster to get a human victim, while it Ignored -the docks within its retch, seemed to Indicate a longing for larger prev. It was difficult to Imagine that’ the snake conid really swallow a man, but the peculiar structure of the jaws in the boa tribe, and their immense power of expansion, enable them to get down animals of a bulk much exceeding theirown. When these creatures were glid ing about their dens, great play of muscle was observable through the skin. “ During those performances -a large box was brought in by two laborlWi It had apertures for ventilation, and c&ftalned some large rock snakes. The keeper raised the lid, and touched one of the reptiles, which were in a half-torpid condition. This excited the curiosity of one of the workmen, who in quired anxiously. ‘They be'ant alive, sir, be they?* ‘Alive! yes,’ said the keeper; do von want to have' one out?* *Oh no, sir,’ was the quick reply; and he and Ids compan ion were cone in an instant- The cobra ap pears to be one of the most Irritable species; ibe class front of its case is partially white washed, to hide approaching objects from it. but notwithstanding It strikes against the glass so frequently that Itsjsosle was quite raw. “I took the opportunity of asking the keeper If be bad ever observed the boas lick tbeir prey before swallowing It. as they are p. p atari? believed to do. He replied as ex fected, that In several years’ experience, he ad never scon it done. It Is not improba ble. I think, that, while the boa Is examin ing Its recently-killed prey to commence the swallcwiiig operation In tbc most convenient manner. It may keep flickering Its tongue m and rnt as most serpents are In the habit of doinr. and this may give an Inaccurate ob server the idea that It was licking Its prey. I ferr this tccount may appear tediously minute, but 1 send u on the chance of inter leret-lirc some who have never been present at the serpent’* dlnaer-honr.” SCTSE Ef A 3TESAGERTE. right Between a .Wan and a Uoxx. Wombwells's menagerie is now at Leeds, Ecgiard. and the y-mUAire Pod, In giving an account of it. says : “A strange and dan ce reus accident happened last week, when Messrs. Cross, naturalists, of Liverpool, un dertook to forward a huge black-maned Sahara lion to Scarborough. On its a rival there the animal wastakento the menagerie. AU went well till It was atlemoted to shift this untamed king of the forest from the cage In which he had been forwarded into the den built to bold him at the exhibition. Aflrrmany nnsnecessfal attempts bad been made to inove blmout of oueicage into the other, it was at last determined to telegraph their difficulty, and request the assistance of Mr. William Cross, who. at once, oa receipt of the telegram, took the train for Searbo rooch. Upon bis arrival there another trial wa«'made. and after a severe struggle, that lasted some hours, the noble brute was at length successfully and safely denued. But, strange to sav, whilst Mr. Cross was receiv ing the congratulations of the people about him he inadvertently laid hold of one of the bars of the den. •‘ln a moment the huge animal sprang from bia crouching position, and, to the consternation of all beholder?, seized the band of Mr. Cross in bis moots. It is im possible accurately to describe tbe scene at Hus juncture—fear seemed to possess every one present. Several strangers who bad. boon specially invited to witness thff ablflmg magnified tbe accident to Mr. Cross into an etcapv or the lion ont of .bis cage; thus, filled with fear, they rushed out of the me nagerie in great terp dation. The lion still held Mr. Cross fast by hla band, nor could ho be enticed to let gohlsbold, although tempt ing junks of beef and cows’ beans, were thrown into his cage; bat the most surprising part of all was that, daring the whole of the time each was trying to at tract the attention of the lion from him. Mr. Cross appeared the least undisturbed, as, with his eyes fixed upon bis captor, bo scorn ed to be watching and waiting patiently for some expected opportunity. "Finding Ihe lion determined to retain his bold, and the pain becoming very severe. Mr. Cross ashed one of the keepers to hand him a small bar of iron he was boldine ready for use. 'With this Mr. Cross succeeded In striking the brute a terrific blow between tbe eyes. The enraged animal sprang back with a snort, tearing away the flesh from the hand, and mutilating one finger so-serious ly that at first it was thought amputation was an absolute necessity, and was recom mended; but Mr. Cross, with coolness in him characteristic, refused all surgical aid— he thongbt he was sufficiently cat up al ready, and, wrapping up his mutilated limb in wet cloths, walked out of the menagerie as If no accident had happened to him, and re turned as soon as possible to Liverpool." 9Jf p.m. Peter Marie, about seventy years of age, and an old and much respected citizen ol Laracca. Texas, died recently at that place. Tho Commsixial says: " While sleeping tn the daytime he was fly-blown about the nose, which resulted m the Introduc tion of tbe screw-worm. They penetrated the head so os to cause bis death. This is the first human death we have ever seen recorded from that cause; but It Is not at all Incredible." Markets bv Telegraph. New York Markets.
