CAN A WOODElf MAIf BE MADE TO WALK AHD TALE 1 For some time past it has been report ed that a wonderful achievement in'sci ence and art had been accomplished by a mechanic of this city. Ue had. in fact, invented an automaton that could walk and talk. A number of gentlemen had seen the figure operate exactly as de scribed by the inventor, but they weie inclined to think that there was collusion in the case. Yesterday afternoon we witnessed an exhibition of the automaton in a private room in Broadway. It was an awkward looking thing, weighing, it was said, three hundred and fifty pounds, with a huge bronze head, a monstrous body painted red, and short legs. The resem blance to a roan was very slight. Its general appearance, we should say, was more liLe that of a monster. Lpon our entrance into the room in company with several gentlemen, the figure stood near the wall between two windows. The operator read a descrip tion ?f the invention, stating that it wai moved by machinery. Before he finished reading, however, the automaton began to vibrate iu a very Eicgular manner. 1:0 motion continued some seconds, and the spectator began to suspect that there was somebody inside the monstrous sto mach of the figurr. The machinory w:.s wound up at last, and while the operator steadied the figure, it shullltd its elephant teet along the lloor lor a short distance and then stopped. Ihe screws were put to the figure again, and it backcd towards the wall, at the same time liftirg its feet in tbt backward movement much better thac going forward. The operator then prepared the figun for speaking, by the use of an air-pump this, some of the lookers-on hinted was to give air to the person ccncea'ed within the figure. While the operator was proceeding with his " punipings, ' the gentlemen closely scrutinized the automaton, in order to detect any deception. Small windows are placed in its body, to allow a view of the use of the machinery in iide. But these appertures, anfortu nately. though a person can cce directly through the body apparently in a straight line, do not throw any light into the chamber. From these openings nothing can be determined as to its mode of oj>e ration any more than by looking at the : unsightly exterior. Barnum, of the Museum, two or three other showmen, and several members of the press were present. None of them, it seemed, were favorably struck with the invention. The greatest point was now to be fet tled. Ko one doubted that the figure had walked. The oj>eratcr seized the air pump, and moved some keys on the out side of the body, when the figure said, with pauses between the words : 44 Ladies and gentlemen, you sec before you a triumph of science and art.1' Many more words were spoken, but we couid not understand them. The voice seemed to sound as if proceeding from a living body through pipes. The operator assured the spectators that anv body could make the figure speak, and that there was no collusion Barnuro moved the keys and the figure answered, but as he could not see the interior he was not satisfied. The impression of these who were present was that there was a man inside of tbe figure. If there is nothing of the kind, the inventor ought not to be secret about its construction.?Act* 1 ork Evening Post. HjMS A?fD W'HAS. Our homes?what are their corner stones but tho virtue of a woman, and on what does social well-being rest, but on our homes ? Must we not trace all other blessings of civilized life to the doors of our private dwellings ? Are not our hearth stones guarded by holy forms conjugal, filial, and parental love, the corner-stone of Cnurch and State : more sacred than either, more necessary than both ? Let our temples crumble, let our public edifices; our halls of justice crum ble, and capitals of state be levelled with the dust; but spare our homos ! Let no socialist invade then* with his wild plans of community. Man did not invent, and he cannot improve or abrogate them. A private shelter to cover in two hearts dearer to each other than all iu the world; high walls to exclude the profane eyes of every human being; seclusion en'.u:rh for children to feel that mother is a holy and peculiar name--this is home; and here is the birthplace of every secret thought. Here the Church and State must come for their origin and support. Oh ! spare our homes! The love we experience there giv?S us our faith iu an infinite goodntss; the purity and disinterested ness of home is our foretaste and our iarnest of a better world. Iu relations there established and fostered, do we find through life the chit fsolace ai J joy of existence. What friends deserve the name compared with those whom a birth right give us ? One mother is worth a thousand friends; one sister truer thaa twenty intimate companions We who have played on the same hearth, under the light of the same smile, who date back to the same scene and season of in nocence and hope, in whoue veins run the same blood, do we not find that years only make more sacred and more important the tie that binds ? Coldness may spring up; distance may separate; different spheres may divide; but those who can love anything, who continue to love at all, must find that the friends whom God himself gave, are wholly un like any we can choose for ourselves, and that the yearning for these is the strong i spark in our expiring affection.

U.1FADI50 EEAKT An old man walked near a time-worn church, having gone thither to visit the grave of one long departed. H? hvl cen weeping; and as he turned his eyes heavenward, tears glistened therein, lie wore in a button-hole a faded ribbon, which ever and anon he looked upon, then again lifted his face to tho skies, muttered some soft words of love, and continued weeping. Some children, standing by, derided the old man. Raying ?? Father, givi* us thy ribbon: it is old and can be of no worth to thee/' But the old man clasped the ribbon in his hands, and thought sadly of one he loved, who di#d w hile her bridal garments still adorned her. They had loved long and truly, and had married in the full vigor of their youth. But as tbey were returning from church they chanced to meet a rush of people, who were being driven before the soldiery in one of those cmcutcx fji which Francc is so notorious. She mar ried pa;r were riding in a car. when the report of musketry was heard, the bridr groom became excited, and s?re?chirg out of the window, he marked the tu mult for a moment, then turned to calm the fears of his wife. Alas ! the quiet of death was already upon her?a bullet had entered her young heart; and thero she leaned, as before she sat?a sweet smile upon her face, her lips still warm, but dead ! On that unhappy morninj, the old man took a ribbon from her breast, and ever - night and day?he had wo*n it mar hi* .eart. Sixty years had passed since then, but he had never sought another love. But, gazing upon the ribbon, he saw her he loved ever by his side. Ard when the children derided him, he meek ly replied?44 The heart, my dear chil dren, is not like a ribbon No! no! be lieve me, the heart never grows old."' SlXGCt.AR CoXDrCT OF Mrs. RoBIKSOV, THE CONDEMNKD MlEDEEESS.?The TrOV Limes of Monday gives the following ac count of the strange behavior of Mrs. Robinson, called the veiled murderess, now in thcj&il of that city: "The intelligence of the refusal by the supreme court to grant the motion for a new trial, made by the common council, was received here by the public official < on Saturday afternoon. The Sheriff, how - ever, considered it advisable to withhold it from the unfortunate woman until the arrival of Mr. Pierson, her counsel, think ing that the intelligence would be received by her more calmly when communicatcd by that gentleman. "Through the medium of an outside friend, however, Mrs. Robinson becas?e Acquainted with the fact about thr e o'clock in the afternoon. She at tir<t manifested symptoms of uncontrollable an^er, stamping the floor with her feet, and launching out a torrent of invectives against all who were in any way connect ed with her trial. By degrees, however, she became moderate, and finally settled down with the exclamation, 4I am glid that they would not give mo the new trial.' "Towards evening she sent the woman employed to do her washing for a larce quantity of provisions, and after build ing a rousing lire in the stove?sufficient ly iarge for the coldest wintry dry?!>:? gan to prepare a sumptuous repast, say ing that she would at lexst have a La.; in honor of the occasion. "Soon after dark Mrs. Robinson pla:c J a number of lighted candles in each win dow of her cell?the illumination bein^ designed, as she stated, to testify' h^r I joy. The affair attracted a large nuaiVti* of spectators in the street, bui she was allowed to proceed with jner amusement uninterrup.ed until the candles barnei out.

It was produced by the bar-tender, creaming over the edge of the tumbL-r. "Thank y?," said the recipient as ho placed it to his lips. Having finished it at a swallow, he smacked his lips, and said: 44 That is very tine alo?very.? Whose is it ? 44 It is Uarmau's ale." 44 Ah, Il&rman's, eh? Well, give u.s another glass of it." It was done, and holding it up to the light and looking through it, the connoissieur said : 44 Pou my word, it is supeib ale?superb!? clear as Maderia. I must have houu more of that. Give me a mug of it.'* The mug was furnished; lut before putting it to his lips the imbiber said, whose alo did you say this was?" 44 llarman's," repeater the bar-tender. The mug was exhausted, and also tha vocabulary of praise: and it only remained for the appreciative gentleman to say, as he wiped his mouth and went toward the door: 'Ilarman's ale is it? I know ilaiman very well?I shall nee him soon, and will settle him for two glasses and a mug cf his incomparable brew!
