The eastern sky U daahod. j Far up with IhlnhM radiance; and anoj The moon, clearing the craggy mountain height, Pencils the vales with shade, the hills with light. piscellaueous. Sue end Decline of Ohivolfy. The classic ancients knew nothing of chivalry. They did not understand the point of honor, and assassinated instead of fighting dnels. They were equally igno rant of gallantry toward the fair sex, and condescended to kiss their ladiea only for the mean purpose of discovering whether they had been surreptitiously tippling Cbampaigoe or anisette. In their wars they relied altogether on their infantry, and from their sculptures and paintings it is evident they nourished a very absurb breed of horaes. Even the divine Honier vaunts the prowess of his princes and he mes in blackguard pugilistic encounters, and the great Olympic Games were as vnlgar and brutal os the modern exhibitions of Jim Mace and Tom Hycr. The chariot race was inferior in interest to the trotting matches ut our agricultural fain, and there is nothing in history, ancient or modem, to equal in beastliness the public shows of the Roman Colosseum. On the other hand, the Gothic tournament was the most splendid, romantic, and exciting of all the public games and festirals that hare ever been established in any age or eountry; and it was from Asia, that nursery of all that is sublime in imagination, exalted in sentiment, magnificent is display, and thoroughbred in horseflesh, that the chev olereeque idea was introduced into Europe, and took root among the rains of the an cient civilisation; for while a man may be brave, patriotic, and even virtuous on foot, it is impossible for him to be gallant, ro mantic, proud, magnanimous, and, in short, chivalrie, without the inspiration of a noble horse. La Croix says: “Le mot, chevalrie, exprime un ensemble de meeurs, d'idees, et de contonmes, portionlier au moyen age europeeu, ot dont I’analogne ne se ret ton ve pas dans lass aAuales hustaines.' It pise in Europe with tbs Gothic cathe dral. closely intertwined With that sublime religion which united in its service all the courage, capacity, and genius of a romant ic and wonderfbl age. Love, faith, and honor were the white angels, lawless pride, lust, and vengeance the fiends, blazoned un its banners. Orninn and the Xibelnn gm Lied sing of chivalry io its inaty, untrammeled, and heroic youth. When Froissart wrote, the tendency of events had already marked its decline, as the fierce and haughty independence of the feudal noble was quelled by the cen tralizing power of kings, and the purity of knighthood sullied by the corrupting in fluence of courts. Yet, even at that pe riod. the romantic idea prevailed that it was essential to a gentleman's character to pay his debts, that men faced fatigues, privations, and death itaelf rather than fail in their plighted faith. Then comes the discovery of gunpowder, and foreshadowing the fact, Ariosto sings how the bravo Roiatid captures a shooting iron from a felonious governor, and throws the abominable invention into the sea With indignant exclamation: ‘ Go, base and unworthy weapon, that no true knight may over use—forged by Beelzebub—whereby cowardice, weakness, and rascality may triumph over strength, courage, and jus tice I” But the brave Roland was mis taken. Gunpowder only cracked the shell and demanded a change of weapons : in deed, it elevated the role of knighthood by discarding mere brutal strength from the catalogue of chivalrie virtue#, and exalting the power of courage and justice. It was retlly the discovery of printing | that killed chivalry, soul and body. Then the power that comes of knowledge passed over to the unarmed people. The unlet tered prince coaid no longer delegate the writing and reading of his letters to a hired varlqt, ®al the doughty Douglas dared no longer boost, 'Thank Heaven that no son of mine Ssvo.6aWShisverpvnoeaa.BaA* • It became a question of learning to road, instead of learning to ride. Life is ndt long enough for both. Warriors wore superseded by philosophers, tournaments by scholastic disputations; study bowed the stalwart frame, the pen cramped the iron hand, Latin and Greek quelled the pa* sinuate energy, while subtleties and dog mas addled the simple brain of knight hood, incidentally engendering more quar rels than sit the gunpowder, percussion, and nitro-giycerioe since discovered have ever been able to settle. It was the dis covery of printing, then, that overturned chivalry, and is undermining many other ancient systems that people don't suspect. Whatever of knightly spirit remained to the nineteenth century, high-cockod bon iss&swarsr deed past." , -Tbs knhfhts tre -hut. And thefr noon .words ere raw - Their mete am with thv „ tnua. And well may we join wHh Burke and t'olertdg* and all the other orators and poets to lamenting the downfall of an in stitution which, although originating in aspired st least to efuture- , CUMUOtcra la lit ■■■ ■ ; hiving Superstitions. . With the descendants of the Irish, the j I belief in witc6eft, wizxurds, witchcraft, I | signs and amen*, would be beyond crcdi-1 j hilily were It told. We generally expect 1 i the higher the culture and intolligenee, j the greater the freedom from all forms of superstition, and the Americans and | English consider themselves far in the | advance over the Germans ; yet a lady, standing in the very front rank of station, I fashion, and general culture, not long ago, expressed M me her fall frith in the, imp-' her of thirteen at table being significant of some evil. I know also of another ludy turning pale with fright, when, as she was sitting down to her table of twelve, a friend happened in inoUlentally und made the thirteenth, she thinking it would bring ' seiuc calamity her household. The i different# la the two peopbe, as 1 have ’ observed, is that where the German refers his spells and incantations to the power of 1 God, the Irish refers his to the power of - the devil. I could give many ludicrous illustra > lions. I will only give a few. In a ftm i ily of my acquaintance, of usual intclli . gence and standing, and who have nut au i element of German in the household, when , churning butter and it won't come, they ■ heat the iron spit of the red . hot and plunge it through the cream, in , the full faith that they are spearing the , witches that kept the butter from coming. , When a child, at a country school in au t English settlement, in going from it. if a 5 poor helpless old msn of the neighborhood, > who was called a wisaard, would appear on the road in sight, we children would f scatter as nimblygas a flock of partridges, • hiding in fence corners aud behind trees t or bushes until be had passed out of sight; , or should he happen in a house, we would r hide under a bed. Bo entirely had our I childhood been corrupted by superstition. | Cows, when shedding their hair, are apt , to lick themselves. The hair, passing into I the stomach by a rotary motion, forms . into a little ball, which ia ejected. These ] are called “witch-balls,'' and are believed . to be shot by witches, eit her to injure the , eow, or the owner, through the cow; and , any subsequent misfortune happening in . the family is believed to be tbs consequence , of the power of the witch. i I was well acquainted with a lady of , culture, daughter of a Presbyterian cler , gyman. herself an earnest professor of I religion, who, if she happened to meet a j cow, while walking on au errand, or to ■ visit n friend, would tern from her pur . pose and go back, and especially if it s bawled, on account of the ill-lick it might i bring by its presence. If a little salt was . spilled at table, she would think the ill-luck I done nsray if she could throw a little pinch ) of it over her left shoulder. Bo it was an I omen of good luck, if the first sight of a . new moon eonld be accidentally seen over , her right shoulder. Her whole life was controlled hy omens of good or bad luck, f The only time I ever knew or heard of i a potato carried in the pocket as a core f for rheumatism, it was by a Presbyterian . gentleman brought up in a Sooteh-Irish f settlement; but I have seen published in a . paper as a remedy, to wash the part affec ted in the water in which potatoes had I I been boiled. r Germans are given to belief in the vir , tue of “blowing,” for burns, bruises, and - i stopping of blood. I once witnessed a case. An infant child, of a German fam , Uy near us, pulled a large dish of boiliag i fat over itself- The mother iu attempting . to remore the clothing, brought the skin i with it. In their consternation they sent , for me. The sight was truly sickening, I to see the raw, quivering flesh of the little r sufferer, from the chin down over the r! whole breast, and extending to one ear. i \ When a man was brought to “blow” it, it' . I was ia in agony of suffering; during the .: operation the child became perfectly calm, | i and soon fell into a sleep. I insisted that . something more should be done. The r parents acquiesced, but 1 saw evidently i only in deference to ne. I dressed it wHh 5 simple eerate, and went twice afterward to wash and dress the wound. In the course ; of n week it had healed over, leaving , hardly a scar. The case staggered my | Scotch-Irish incredulity a good deal. The custom of sitting with the hat on . during a burial service is of purely Oer , man usage in our part of the country, and , ia universal with them. I once asked a scholar, learned in ancient customs, what was the origin of it. He said it was of great antiquity, and was done as a sign of . humiliation and mourning, answering to • the idea of “sack-oloth and ashes/' For 1 Biblical authority for it refer to 2 Bam. > 15:3®; Jer 14.3; Esther 6:12. i -C *i - - - , (jy i A Defense of Large Feet. A Philadelphia lady writes to the New York Graphic :—l protest against all this talk about small foet as if they were s sign of beauty. In the first place, this is not , true. No lady who is of average height and weighs 160 ought to wear a smaller [ shoe than No. 38. A smaller fool than . that—at any rate a shorter foot—becomes ■ a personal blemish. If the foot be well t formed, not fleshy, with tolerably high instep, a moderately large foot is best, both for beauty and strength and durability. A short foot, with very high instep, is a deformity, and looks tee much like s club foot. People with such feet are apt to be olnmsy sod to fall readily over any oh -1 atractioo, or from say misstep. 1 Ibish 800,. —They have been relehra ■ o*l for ages at simply immense basins of > till within a few yean.

To nu merous inspections made fur myself and friends I have- invariably found the “Alla Safety" to stand a higher Fire test than that you claimed for it (namely 160%) and have also found it in uniform purity and general good qualities, superior to any other oil I have seen, and as such, recommended it to my friends and the public generally, as the most rtliaffU oil for family use now tn the market. As Heffners, I congratulate you upon your signal success in manufacturing an oil posses sing the very best qualities, Safety, rarity, and the production of a most brilliant light. In using the“AltaSafety*’ Oil in my household 1 have found it to give a light fur rending or writing superior to gas and believe with ordi nary care, that an accident with this oil is impossible. Wishing you continued success with the Alfa Safety, which you so justly merit, 1 am Very respectfully. J. ADDISON SMITH. Inspector <'rude and Heffned Petroleum, •1 South Gay St., Baltimore.
