S writing from Fort Desmoines, (where young people are ?' gathered from all parts of the states,'' and where, as we may well judge, there is " a good deal of fun going on,") gives us an amusiDg account of two young men go ing home from a convivial party, late at night, who " cut up" the subjoined 41 shine," which was witnessed by a friend whotollowed them, unobserved, and which we condense: They saw a doctor's horse standing, saddled and saddle-bag'd, before a patient's door. One said to the other, in a slightly paraljxed and " unknownfow^wr" "7je*giion!u "Good! go ahead! There's tteo horse*?' Yougitoit' fust."' They both moanted the same beast, and rode off An angry discussion arose: " I got the beet horse," chuckled the forward rider " No, Sir-r-r! ' said the other: "you f)t a saddle?I havn't?ridin' bare back d. oujust wait, and see trhieh'llfomeoutfust: Go-o-o l-aa ngItii not yet known ?? which beat!"- -?* ? ?- ^m pri i CIll. |y inuring the Harrison campaign, an elo ? quent orator in the western part of Vir ginia vu holding forth to ar immense unb< blage io favor of the hero of Tippecanoe, and Tyler too. Especially the speaker was expa. tic4 up?>n General Harrison a courage, tact, and success as a military commander. While in tbe midst of hi* discourse. e tall, gaunt man. probably a schoolmaster in those parte, aruse from the crowd, end said, in a voice which penetrated the whole assembly : *' Mi'ter?aii*ter, I want to ax you a ?,ue? tion." lfce speaker paused, and begfed him to pro pound 4' We aie told," the man went ou, " fellow citixens. that Gineral Harrison is a mightr great gintral ; but I say be is one of tbe veiy meanest sort >.t ginerale We are told here to uight that he defended himself bravely at Kort Meigs ; but 1 tell ynu that on that ocoa j-ion he was guilty of the Tail ?anti, and 1 challenge the orator here present to deny it." The orator declared his utter ignorance of what the man meant by the *? Small Tail Movement,1' and asked him to explain him self " I 11 tell you " said the man " I've got it here, in black and white. Here is Ohm sha*;\? History of tbe United States"?hold ing up tbe book?4' and I'll read what it says This is it: ' At this critical moment Gtnrrat Harrison rztcuttd a xovel mowwi//.' Doe* the gentleman deny that " No, no?go on " Well, he executed a aovrJ movement. Now, here's Johnson's Dictionary"?taking the book out of his focket and holding it up? "and hero it pays 4 Novel, a smalt tale.' And this was the kind of movement Gineral Harmon was guilty of. Now, I'm no soger, ar.d I d n't know much of milentary tictack?. but this do 1 say : a man who, in the face tf an enemy, id guilty of a 4 Srnfcll Tail Move ment' is not fit to be President of the United Sta'rs, and Le shan't have my vote." The orator ?f the evening could make no headway against such an argument, and gave j it up in despair. Comparative Elasticitvok Wbought a*p Cast Iko* ?The mean ultimate resistance of wrought iror. to a force cf compression, as use ful in practice, is 12 tons per square inch, while a crushing weight of cast iron is 49 tona por square inch ; but for a considerable range, under equal weights, tbe cast iron is twice as elastic, it compresBe? twice as much as the wrought iron A remarkable illustration of the effect of intone strain on cast iron was witnessed by the author at the works ? Messrs Kanion i Amu. The subject of the experiment was a cast iron cylinder, 10i inches thick, and 144 inches high, tbe external diametor being 18 inches It wad requisite, for a specific purpose, to reduce the internal diameter to 3J inches, and this was effected by tho insertion of a smaller cast iron cylinder into the center of the large ono; and to injure some initial strain, the large cylinder was expanded by beating it, and tho internal cylinder being first turned too large whs thus powerfully compressed. The inner cyhnlcr was partly filled with pewter, and a steel piston being fitted to the Pore, a pressure of 972 tons was put on tho steel pistcn The steel was '? up?et" bv the pressure, and the internal diameter of the '.mail cylinder wv increased by full three sixteenths of an inch?that is, the diameter became 3 11 16 of an inch! A new piston was accordingly adapted to these dimensions, and m this the cylinder continued to be used, and to resist the pressure ; the extercal layer of the inner cylinder was thu? permanently extended 8 1-50 of its length In fact, it can only be regarded as loose packing, giving no additional strength to the cylinder. Under the?e high pressures, when oonfined mechanically, cast iron, as well as other met als. appears, like liquids, to exert an equal pressure in every direction in whieh iis mo tion is opposed?C7f/rX-'j Britannia and Con way and Tubular BriUgrt. i Pkomiaclocs Batmko ix Japax.?Another 1 extrai rdiuary Summer amusement is in tbe j promiscuous public bathing of both sexes of all I ages; they enter a small room barely fifteen ! feet square, and only partially screened from | the ru ius?wi h uncuitained windows open i ir.g on the streets?and close to other inmates of the hou?e. pursuing their mechanical advo cations and in perleot nudeness perform the operations of the bath?wrinkled age and j budding girlhood nlike unbashed, surrounded and pressed on by sensibility, early manhood, anl fro'.icsome childhood. Sel {-possession, quietness and order reigned as paramount as iu the . cilous of the most civilized people, curiosity fled quickly before the sensations such a bCene naturally creates, though it led me to stand outside and watch the persona is suing from and entering the email bathing h">usr; nnd without the fort? of the great Conde. that of detecting tbe condition, the bathers were not confined to the lowest or dissolute classes The police effectually pre vent all intercour?e between Europeans and the fair Japanese, the loss of the head bein? the punishment fulminated against aey one faund converting with a European; and ail the gallantry of our ailies quartered in the temple was unavailing, 1 heard, to achieve a conquest; though, perhaps, ere this a romance from the prolific pen of some great /rench novelist may be issuing in some /unU'ton at Paris, contradicting tbe assertion, and be etill more wondrous that the romantic nmoura of Dr. Yvan, in Malay, or the adventures de scribed in - Vicgts Anneesaux Philippine." Over the Lkkt ?The following good story is told on lien Harney, by oneof the offi cers who was with him at the battle of Aeh Hollow, and aiierwards at Forte Pierre: At the treaty held at the latter place, at which the General had a great talk with the chiefs of all the tribes, he stood a few step* in advance of his staff, and dictating to the in terpreter what to say, in his usual gruff and authoritative manner: "Tell them,'said be, " that their great father at Washington has sent me here to make them respect the trea ties tbey have made with the whites." 44 Tell them t'uat I am furnished with a great number of braves, horses and oannon. and that I shall make war upon them aa long as an Indian can be found on these prairies if they don't." Tell them that they must not kill or rob any more emigrant, trains that are crowing the plains, or steal any thing from the whites in any manner " 44 Ask them if they remember the fight at Ash Hollow." [It will be remembered that a great num ber of the ludians made their escape through a pass in the hills that tbe General knew nothing of until too late ] , _ ?. Tell them that I left a place for them to escape through, then, to prevent my brmves from killing every one of them," and he con tinued, turning his eyes over hu shoulder to his staff,14 it's lucky for them that I didn't know where it was, or I'd have killed every j d redskin in the hollow." fy it is amusing, says the Boston Post, to hear a small politician |wbo owes his whole importance to the iLtluence of the preas, talk contemptuously of newspapers and editors. There is ?:o stronger proof of the "power of tbe press" than the tact that it can raiee sacb timber-heads into high places Luckily a single pull on the same lever can bring them down again to their proper leval?did they not inevitably fall of their own feeblenees. . An exchange paper says that the girls in some parts of Pennsylvania are so hard up for husbands that tbey sometimes take bp printers and lawyers . *
