Occupations op French Women ?Did jou oversee a lady play on tho fiIdle rendei ' There is certainly no impropriety in the em ployment. St Cecilia doubtless had a fav"r itc S'raduarins; yet there dots socio to be something indefinable, bizarre, fantastic, out of pla?e, in fair hands taking up the fiddle and the bow. But if a feminine violinist be a novelty, what would you say to a lady car penter? lie re are some hundreds of them hammering, sawing, and chopping away, with tremendous vigor and celerity These eyes .have seen the grandum of eighty polishing off ?a plank with a plane to a nicety They have seen a trim littlu damsel of seventeen, with colored handkerchiefs tied coquottishly round hor head, busily fixing beams and girders, while a groat-bearded, bloused man tat ma jestically by, smoking his pipe, or if he con descended to interfere in bueiuess matters at all, unpacking dolls houses, or dabbling with a glue pot. What labor will not French wo men undertake? They follow the plough; they keep books; they open box doors; tney take ticketc at railways; they drag your lug gage ty tho Custom House; they cut jou your chops ajrid biftecks at the butchers; they danoe on the tight-rope and on stilts ; they bay old clothes; they keep shooting-galleries: they enter lion* dens; thfiy measure you for boots; they shave you.

Paul, in New Haven, Conn , has in one of ts towers two stones cut into forms of the ace <f clubs and ace of diamor^s?devices taken rom a pack of cards. The explanation given s this : the architect first employed in the erection of the building was a Deist, and a nan of bitter cynical spirit. By way of bur lesque. he resolved to cut the stones for the structure into such figures that a huge pack of cards might appear flaming out on the sides of the sacred structure. By means of scaf folding and other concealments, he veiled his design from the building committee till the walls were nearly carried up, and his practical joke nearly played off. The discovery was at la t made, and "the whole structure, of course, t tkca down. In the course of demolition, the architect fell from a scaffolding and was in Bt^u'Jy killed A most luxuriant v*?odbine mantics the present walls and nearly hides the two stones above referred to, whioh being near the foundation of the massive tower, were suffered to remain. 14 Jim WatsoM's Note Book."?On the plan I ition of James Watson, near Port Uibson, Mississippi, may be witnessed an exhibition of memory that is truly remarkable.
