Then* are three aromatic beverages?tea. cof fee, and coco*?which are generally used in all parts of civilised Europe, Asia, and America In the countries of China. Thibet, Russia. Hol land. England, and the various States and pro vinces of North Amcrica, having an aggregate pipula ion of five hundred million human be ing". an estimated quantity of two thousand mil lion pounds of tea?four pounds to each individ ual, is annually used Coffee, which is preferred bv many people to tea. and which is indeed the staple minor luxury of Mahomedan life, is yearly becoming more and more generally used. It is estimated that six hundred million pounds of the coff<#e bean are consumed every year by one hundred and twenty millions of men. Cocoa, the least popular ef these drinks, is still a favo rite beverage in Central America, Italy and Spain, and is probably consumed to the extent of one hundred millions pounds a year among a population of fifty million. An article in the April number of the Edin burgh Review gives some interesting facts in relation to the chemical properties of these three tea table drink-", which are common upon every table in our land, and explains at length the reasons why they are always so refreshing to the weary and so apparently nourishing to the hun gry. It says that the tea. coffee and cocoa all contain in "the roasted state in which they are used, aromatic oils, in minute proportion, to which the peculiar ar6ina of each is due. They contain also a proportion of an astringent sub stance resembling the tannin of gall-nuts or oak l ark. In the tea and coffee is found a variable quantity of a white crystalline body called theiue, and in c<?eoa a substance ot nearly a sim ilar character known by name of theobromine. Of these three constituent parts, twooi them, the volatile oil and the theine arc known to cxcrcise peculiar influence upon the system The oil possesses nareoctic properties, intoxicates, oc casions headache and giddiness, and sometimes paralysis in those who. as tea tasters, are much exposed to its influence. New tea contains this oil in largor quantities than old The small proportion of it which exists in tea as we get it from China it harmless. The theine which is found in coffee and tea and the theobromine in cocoa, are Bitter, strengthen ing substances, distinguished particularly by the peculiar property of retarding the natural waste of the animal body. The faster the waste the larger the quautity of food which must daily be consumed to make up for the loss which it occasions. The theine. or theobromine, there fore. by lessening the waste. lessens also the amount of food necessary to be eaten within a given time. The volatile oil produces a similar I eflect in a somewhat less degree, and when old age comes on and the powers of digestion di minish. the infusion tea. which contains both these ingredients, by lessoning the waste, aids the digestive powers to maintain the strength and bulk of the weakening frame. Pr. Johnson, the author of a work upon ? the chemistry of common life,' says in connection with these im portant properties of the theine and volatile oil, that? ? It is no longer wonderful, therefore, that tea and coffce should be favorites?on the one hand with the poor, whose supplies of food are scanty, and on the other hand with the aged and infirm, especially the feebler sex. whose power* of digestion and whose b-wiily substance have to gether begun to fail Nor is it surprising that the aged female whoss earnings are barely ?ufli'Ment to buy the common necessaries of life, i should yet st>are a portion of her small gains In procuring tnis grjteful indulgence. She can .-ustain her strength as well with less common food when she takes her tea along with it; while she feci? lighter at the same time, in spirits, more cheerful and fitter tor the dull work of life, because of this little indulgence lioHon Journal. HOW A CALIFORNIA* GOT INTO A RE LIGIOl'S BOOKSTORE. A short time since a returned Californian came on to this city frou New York, in the night line, with six thousand dollar* in gold He was up bright and early on the follow ing morning, and clutching his treasure tightly, he strode up Chestnut street to the mint He arrived there about two hours before the opening of that institution, and sat himself down upon the steps, muttering something about the la ziuess of Uncle sam's servants. Costing his eyes across the street, he 9aw a large sign, with the words ??' Presbyterian House He rushed over, and went up into the second story, where, findingoneof the office"open, he took possession, and locked the door. Flinging his bag down on the table, he proceeded to take an account of his st<ick While thus busily engaged, one ! of the gentlemen belonging to the building ha l oocusioQ to go into the room. He was much surprised to find the door fastened, as be had left it open a few minute" before. Peeping through the key-hole, he espied our '? unkempt and uncombed" California friend seated at the table, inuring out the dust lrotu the small bags iuto a larger one. He at oncc mistook him for an escaped lu natic. particularly as he had a large bowi? knife and revolver lying along side of him. Hastily l summoning assistance, he knocked at the door, taking care to keep out of the range of the re volver. ?? Who's thar'" demanded the Californian in a stentorian voice. ??Open the door'" replied the gentleman in the white neck-cloth. "No' I'm ble*s'd if I do,"' returned the Californian: - I've beam too much about gar roters and Peter Funks. I know wlia*. you are after?you want to rob me. " ?k No my g *od friend, we do not?we only want you to open the door." meekly and timid ly replied white neck-cloth. "Now, look ee hear, strangers?I'm an hon est man?but cuss me if I'm going to let any such varmints as you get a sight at my pile." Finding expostulation in vain, white neck cloth invoked the aid of the police. They soon brought the unruly Californian to terms, and he opened thed??or As the party runhed into the room, the Californian stared wildly around, and seemed to think that things were not ex actly all right ?? My dear friend?come, like a gr*?d man. and go out with these gentlemen?tl?ey will n>t harm yon.' oaxingly said white ne k cl dh, keeping a watchful eye on the implements of , war which were lying on the table. "Thunder and firelocks?where am I."* demanded the Californian. grasping with a firm hand his bag of dust ??

The prize fight between Dominiek Bradley and S. 8. Rankin, of Philadelphia, for $1,000 a side, came off at Point Albino. Canada West, on Saturday last. This was the " mill'' which has agitated the " sporting circles'* in all the freat Northern cities for some months paft. iradlcy having achieved ouite a notoriety for braggadocia conduct in challenging Tom Hyer. which offer that gentleman refused, declining to mix any further in priie ring contests. The challenge and refusal drew towards it* origi nator the attention of other "fighting men/' and after much "chaffing," as they say in the sporting world, a match was made with Ran kin. who, like his challenger, was a restaurant keeper in Philadelphia. Bradley reduced himself from 204) pounds to 186?his "fighting weight,''?and Rankin is said to have weighed 174 pounds just previous to the fight. '' Con" Fitzgerald, of Albany, and a man named Phil lips acted as seconds for Bradley, and Thomas Davis, with another, seconded Rankin. The manly (') contest was arranged to come off in the forenoon, but the men did not enter the ring until half-past three o'clock They fought 156 rounds in 2 hours and 46 minutes. Ibe Albany Times says : From a person who visited the fight, we learn that both men appeared in excellent condition, but that it was evident, soon after they com menced that both were deficient in '-scicnce." He says that neither Bradley or Rankin showed anything like good training, but that they threw their hands and arms about wildly as street fighters do. and quite unlike men of '?scientific" pretensions. Rankin did not stand up square to his work, but kept continually falling down, or " going down." as it is called, after the peculiar style of Yankee Sullivan. During the 156 rounds there was but one clinch, and in that Bradley threw Rankin, fall ing up??n him with great force. Both men ex hibited great endurance, it they lacked science, for the friends of Rankin desired him to he taken from the rsng an hour before theeontcst ended, but R. refused to go. Rankin was most terribly punished. His nose is said to be broken, and both of his lips cut through and through. Besides this, both of his eyes are closed, and his face so badly beaten that it is swollen even with the "tin of his nose." Our informant says that he withstood a most terrible punishment, infinitely worse than that given to Morrisey by Sullivan at Boston Cor ners, somo years since. Indeed it was reported when the II o'clock train left Buffalo, that Ran kin was so badly beaten it was questionable whether he would be able to go home under a fortnight. Tom Davis, one of Rankin's scconds. immedi ately after the close of the fight, challenged Bradley to a contest for $2,000 a side, but we do not hear that the proportion has been accepted. Davis' weight is but 156. He has. however, the reputation of being "science."' There was an immense gathering of the fancy at Point Albino, and yesterday quite a large delegation of them were in this city on their re turn to New York and Philadelphia. Among tho number was the "Chief of the Philadelphia Killers."' It is stated that Bradley will arrive this morning in the early train. Bradley is a man of wealth, being estimated at $.">0,000, enough, we should suppose to enable him to live without resorting to such despicable business as prize fighting. THALBERG OS THE BANJO. The Courrier des Eiats Unis tells the follow ing good story of the great piano-forte king which we believe is true At any rate, we have ?een an advertisement of Thalberg's teacher on this classical instrument announcing the fact, accompanied by a recommendation from the pianist?not of the instrument, indeed, but of the professor. 44 fhalberg, returned to New York from his triumphant tour in the interior, is reposing gracefully and quietly on his laurels. At the present, he dreams only of a far in rule season at the sea-side, and if. from the force of habit, he must indulge in ?iine musical recreation, it is not with the piano-forte. 44' Not the piano-forte! do you ask. : And what. then, may it be ??
