LIVI1I0 BY OJfE'3 WIC. FROM Till GSRMAN, Br MBS. ST. SIMON. Nine person, sailed from Basle down the Rhine, A Jew who wished to go Schalamp,. was allowed to come on toard and nuraej with them on condi tion that he would conduct himself with propriety and give the captain eighteen kreutzers for hn passage. xNo w.i t is true, something jingled in the Jews pocket when he struck his his hand against it: but the only money thera was tuerein was a twelve kreutzer piece, for the other was a brass button i ^withstanding this he accepted the offer with gratiti de : for he thought to himself, ?? something may be earned, even upon the water. There is many a Rhine ? Sr<>wn rich upon the Dur ng .he first part of the voyage, the passengers were very talkative and merry, and the Jew, with his wallet under the arm?for he did not lay it ande was the object of much mirth and mockery, as, alas ! is often the case wi h those of his nation. But as the vessel sailed onward, and passed Ihurriugtrn and Saint \ eit, the passengers, one after the other, grew silent and gaz*i down the r.vrr, until one spoke out: Come, Jew, do ycu not know any pastime that will amuse us ? Your fa thers must have contrived many a on* 'luring their Ion* stay in the wilderness." '? no* is the time," thought the Jew, "to shear try sheep!" Aud he pro posed that they should sit round in a circle, and propound very curious ques tions to each other, ani he, with their permission, would sit down with them, rhose who could not ansW the ques tions, should pay the one who propound ed them a twelve-kreutzer piece : an a those who answered them pertinentlv, should receive a twelve kreutzer piece/ The proposal pleased the company; and hoping to dirert themselves with the Jew s wit or stupidity, each one asked, at random, whatever entered his head. Thus, for example, the first one asked '' lJow many soft-boiled eggs could the S1*11* ca' an empty stoiu ach?" All gaid that it was impossible to an swer that question, and each paid hi.s twelve kreu'zers. But th? Jew said, ?? One ; for he who has eaten one egg c: nnot eat a second on an empty stomach." And the other pa;u him twelve kreutzers. The second thought, Wait, J:w. and i will try you out of the New Testament. ^ ttiiuk 1 shall win my piece. "Win* did the Apostle Paul write the second epistle to the Corinthians ?" The Jew said : " Because he was not m Corinth, otherwise he would have spoken to them." So he won another twelve kreutz-r piece. W hen the the third Paw that the Jew was so well versed in the Bible, he tried him m a different way. "Who pro longs his work to as great a length as possible, and yet completes it in time?" The rope-maker, if he is industrious," said the Jew. In the meanwhile they drew near to a village, and one said to the other, "That is Bimlach." Then the fourth a*ktd: ? In what month do the people cf Bam lach eat the least ?" I he Jew said: In February, for that has only twenty.eight days." i i fa;fth ?a'^? " There are two natu ral brothers, aud still only one of them is my uncle. lW faitl" "The uncle is your father s brother, and your father is not your uncle." A fish now jumped out of the water, and the sixth asked, "What tish have tb?r eyes nearest together lhe Jew said ; ?? The smallest."" lhe seventh asked: - How can a man rue from Basle to Bern in the shade, 8hines?"8Ummer wLen the su" The Jew said: ?? When he comes to a p.ace where there is no shade, he must dismount and go on foot." 1 he eighth asked: When a man rid * nm,K*'Dl4r ^e from Bern to Baale and has forgotten his gloves, how mu~t fre<T??"ge 80 his hands khall not ?mXtmS'iJ: "U? muS' mike fists nflkif. n.in.\h was the ,ast- Thi" ?ne naked. How can five persons divide ve eacl* man shall receive one and still oue remain in the dish ?" : must take the dish with the e?g, and can let it lay there as long as he pleases." But now it came to his turn, and he determined to make a good sweep. After many preliminary compliments he asked, with an air of mischievous friendliness, w can a man fry two trouts in thi ?e pan8?"60 U tr?UL lie iD e*ch No one can answer this, and one after e other gave him a twelve kreutzer piece. But when the ninth desired that he shculd answer it himself, he frankly ac knowledged that be knew not how the *rout be fned in ^ch away ? Then it was maintained that this "was unfair in the Jew; but he stoutly affirmed that there was no provision for it in the agreement, save that he who could not answer the question should pay tbe kreut zers, and he fulfilled the agreement b\' paying that ;:um to the ninth of bis com i ades \> ho had asked him to solve it him self. IJjt they all being rich merchants, and grateful for the amusement which had passed an hour or two very pleas antly for them, laughed hear'ily o\ei their loss and at the Jew's cunning.

One of these coins bears the likeness of Philip of Maoedon, crowned with laure's, on the side; and on the other side a rep resentation of his horses winning ths race, under which is his name in Grssk perfectly legible. The other coin bears the likeness of Alexander the Great, wearing his helmet; and on the reverse side is a standing figure with wingj, holding a bow and ar row ; t so the name cf Alexander iu ?ireek, sufficiently distinct to be legible, but not so plain as in ilie case of Philip. These coins are just as fresh in ap pearance as the recent gold coinoire of the United States. Their value is about *' ?*ch. About three thousand of the^e coins were found on the oecasioo re ferred to, hermetically sealed up in boxes of copper. These two were procured by our fellow-citizen. Dr. Deforrest who has been engaged in missionary labors in Syria for some twelve or fifteen years, and who has within the last fcw months returned to his former home. These little pieces of geld are invested with rare interest. Alter lying buried for more than two thousand years, they turn up in all the frohness of youth, and gire us. in all probability, correct likenesses of the wonderful men whose name ttey bear. It is worthy of re mark that, judging from their phyoiog noiny, we should take Philip to be tho greater m:n of the two; though it may be our judgment was insensibly swtved hy opinions of long standing.?J? oeAes/er Union. A Mixed Fooi? Neckssaey.?If I only bend my arm, or more my linger, ther? is a certain portion of the tissues de stroyed. w?nch must be supplied bv my food; the more work a man perforin's, the more of those myogenous subsiances he requires. So far as supplying the w aste of the tisscee, it is a matter of indifl'sr ence whether we give an animal food containing gluten or albumen; but it ex cretes a considerable influence on the character of :he animal. Take f>r ex ample a hunt, at which we have on om nivo ous animal, man, riding on a gram inivorous animal, a horse, accompanied by a carnivorous animal, a dog, follow ing a herbivorous animal, a hare. Even the character of nations is Vv-ry matenail y affected indeed by their food. The oihtr class of food serves a very important bat totally different purpose?namely, that of supplying animal heat. The temper ature of our bodies is, in tempi ratc^.i naates at least, higher than the surround ing air. Now in order to keep up ti ls temperature, a combustion goes on simi lar to that of an ordinary fi.e. The same products?carbonic acid, water, aud am monia?are evolved from tho mouth of he furnace of the body and the mouth of a common chimney. In cold weather, a certain portion of heat is gradually ab stracted from our body, which must be supplied by the combustion of our food, or of the ma ter of our bodies; the bolder the climate, therefore, the more heat giv ing materials must b.- supplied iu ths food.?Fro'. Pla\jjair. An Amusing Scene.?The iiule steam er M??hawk, says a Detreit paper, vai lying in St. Ciair river a few days since, surrounded by ice, and immoveable. It occur red to her captain that he could res cue thecrai. from her icy chains by blow ing up the frost n mass with gun-powder. Accordingly he prepared his torpedo by tilling a bottle with gun-powder, attach ing a long piece of water-proof fuse and sinking the contrnance through ?hole m the ice. All beir.g prepared, the gallant engineer tired his train. Now, everyone who has seen the safety-fuse used, knows that it bums quite 6lowly under waier, though as quick as powder in the open air. The explosion not foiliwir.g imme diately on the caj tain's application of his cigar, he became anxious, stepped for ward. and applied his nose to the ice. and "look ye what betel." There was a tumbling explosion; ice, water,Laptain and spray ascended in a halo of glory towards the ae^ith. The captain, hav ing "gone up like a rocket." followed out the metaphor, and 44 came down like the stick," lerunately floating like it, taid struck out for thore.

We h*ard of one that took place a short time since, which reminded us forcibly of hu man inconsistency. A large, two-fisted, brawny fellow who had come down from Detroit by the Great Western, on the stoppage of the train on the other side of the bridge, openel a window to take a survey of the last "won ler of the world." His eyes rested on the awful c'na-m. and the apparently frail bridge over which he wts soon to pass. It was t-?o much for him. D>wn went the window, and cur hero sprang from his seat, made a con vu'sive grab for his carpet-bag, umbiilla, and other paraphernalia necessaty to a traveller, with an ejaculation?'"Look h*re? 1 'I be if I'm going over that thing in those 'ere cars. < *utbe bolted, and started to "foot it" across the lower bridge. As the train reached the middle the individual was observed pleading along bcueath. doubtless muttering to himself, *4if this tmng breaks I am all right." On reaching the other side, he was the source of a great deal of fun, but concluded by settling the matter, bj "treating alfaround."'?Buffalo Commer cial Advertiser.
