The diversity prevailing in different nations if refaraace to articles of food jeems to confirm in it* literal sense the proverbial saying that "One man's meat is another man's poison." u... .. r^A .ki.k i.:_t , Mm,yj au nivicwi ?vw "mvu io IU uigu 05106111 in one country is regarded in others with abhorrence. which even famine ean hardly surmount In the Shetland Inlands it is said that crabs and k>b?ters abound, which the people eatch for the Lond*n market, bat refuse to eat even half-starved. The John Dory is reckoned by epicures one of the choicest of fi*h; but in Devonshire, where it abounds, and also in Ireland, it used to be thrown away as unfit for food. There seems to be aome superstition connected with this, as it is said that a Devonshire oook flatly refused to dress it. Eels, *hich are abundant and of good quality i n Cumberland and Westmoreian i, and also in Gotland, are regarded f y the people there with as much disgu.-- as snakes. Skato, which is in high estimation in England in Ireland is hardly ever eaten except by th fishermen. Scallop*, on the other hand, which are reckoned dainty in Ireland, are hardly ever eaten in England; and, although they are abundant on many of the coast, few of the English have any idea that they are eatable The cuttlefish (that kind which produces the inky fluid), although found on our coasts, is not eaten by us. But at Naples, it is highly esteemed, and travelers report that it tastes like eal. Cockchafers are candied, and served up with other confectionery, by the Italians. The hedgehog no one thinks of eating in England except the gypsies, and some who have joined them, report that it is better than rabbit The sailers in the English and Dutch whaleships do not eat the flesh of the whale; but those in the French whalers (with their wellknown skill in oookery) are said to make a palatable dish of it. By almoet all the lower classee in England venison and game of all kinds are held in abhorrence, and so are fresh figs By the Australian ravages, frogs, snakes, large moths, and grubs, picked out from the weod?all of which the English settlers turn from with diszust?are esteemed as daintioa, but they are shocked at our eating oysters Milk. as an article of food, (except for suck I ing babies,) is loathed by the South Sea Islanders Goats have been introduced into several of the islands . but the people deride the ?ettiers with using their milk, and ask them why they do not milk their sow?. On the other hand, dogs and rata are farorite article* of food with them. Those last, as is well known, are often eaten by the Chinese, who also eat salt earth-worms and a kind of sea ?iug, which most Europeans will tarn from with disgust. In tfee narrative of Anson's voyage is a full account of the prejudices of the South Americans (both Creoles and Indiana) agninat turtle aa poisonous The prisoners capturod on the prise ships warned tho siilon against eating it, and for some time lived on bad ship beef; but seeing our men thrive on the turtle they began to eat it?at first sparingly and at length heartily. And when aet ashore and liberated they declared they blessed the day of their capture, whioh had introduced to them a filentifui supply of wholesome and delicious 004. Horseflesh, which most Europeans would refuse to aat, ezeept in extremity, is preferred by the Tartars to all other; aad the flesh of a wild ass'ocolt was greatly esteemed by the Romans As for pork, it is on religious grounds that Jews and Mahommedans abstain from it, as the Hindoos do from beef. But the Christians of the East*eem to have nearly an equal aversion to it; aad the like prevailed till lately in Scotland. The large shell snail, called csoargot, was a favorite dainty with the anoient Romans, and Still il SO in A ffrMt ntrt r?f fKn hah K *\t I -- "? " v. HOIUp*, though moat Englishmen w >uld be half starred 1 before thej would eat it. In Vienna the large wood ants are aerved up and eaten alive. Small land eraba are ealen alive in China. The igauana. a large epeciea of liaard. is reckoned a great dainty in come of the Weat India Islands. Maiae (the Indian corn of America) haa been introduced into New Zdland bj the missionaries, and the people cultivate and highly esteem it. But their mode of preparing it for food is to Europeans moat disgusting They ?teep it into water till it is putrid, and tben make it into a kind of porridge, whioh emits a moat intolerable stench tHaaaan flesh haa been, and atill is. eaten in many parts of the world, and that by people considerably above the loweat rank or (?such M the Fijii Islanders and an Indian people called the Batta, who are said to have a written language And even in cannibal10m there are great diversities?wme nations at their enemies and some their friends. Herodotus relates that a Persian king asked the Indian soldiers that were in hi* service what reward wonld induce them to burn the dead bodies of their frienda, instead of eating them They replied bj entreating him not to mention anything so shocking. vu iae omer nana ttte Acw Zealanders? before their conversion, who seeuiad to havecin idered that the proper diet ot mankind is mwi?seem to have eaten only their enemies. Among the Australian cavages, on the contrary, it is said that if a mother finda a young baby troublesome to carry about, she will eat it although she would not allow any one else to do so) under the full persuasion that she has merely deferred i? birth, aad that the next child she bears will be a rMppearanoe of the eaten one. When remonstrated with, she will reply " Oh, masM. he plenty come again."

The other evening, at a residence only a few miles from this city, a cat was discovered sitting upon the chest of a little boy four year* of age, her mouth pieced close to the child's ling an/i tKm mm# asil Jew ?l- ??? ? -?L r?' ?? ? luouuj tci/ uucu ?o* ?ort?d in the operation.

L'om # PREKTirEARA. The rebel Government, finding thai its troops are chieflj remarkable for running, ha* hit opon the happy expedient of obviating the trouble by enlisting cripples. The rebels threaten another irruption into the ipountains of Kentucky The mountains might not fell on them, but the mountainpatriots would# There is but one Bull Run, but the rebels have made a good many bully runs. The rebels don't bury their dead more than eighteen inches or two feet deep. They even begrudge the poor fellows a respectable hole in the ground. The abolitionists seem to think that our treat war is not against tbe rebeLGovernment bat agairst Gen. McClellan. The re'oel soldiers should oover themselves with glory if they can, for their Government furnishes no clothing to oover them. Peace and prosperity spring up in the progress of the U S. armies as flowers are said to spring in the foot-prints of angels. Our troops ran from Manassas, and the rebels didn't follow. The rebels hare run from Manassas, and oar troops do follow. Never in any country was there snoh a rapid succession of victories as the United States troops have won. And yet men complain thatoar armies don't move fast enough. Xhere**re persons who, upon a railroad train that moves rorty miles an aoar, will bend their bodies forward to the speed. The rebel soldiers are exhorted by their organs to die for their country. But the soldiers, like the organs, prefer running away for their country. Probably they think that the organs, if any dying is to be done, had better begin it themselves. A person, supposed to be a rebel emissary frona the mountains, attempted last week to get an immense quantity'of oloth od oredlt. We suppose Humphry Marshall has some difficulty in covering his flanks. We hear a great deal about the wretched eondition of the Southern troops, and no doubt 'tis all true, but jet, whenever our forces come upon a rebel stronghold, they are very sure to find the rebels tvelf of. The Rev. Mr. Baldwin, a Nashville rebel, was to have preached on oowardice in that city on the 2'id ult , but he preferred to illustrate his theme bv running iwit TTint. w?? than a sermon. The Confederate Government at Richmond atill blusters us to its ability to maintain its position, but it keeps its carpet bag packed and handy. Gov. Rector or Rectum (or acme such name), of Arkansas, calU upon the whole people of that Stare to take up arms in the rebellion. Tho running time of the Southern railroad cars is about ten miles an hour. That of the rebel armies on foot about eight. The rebel* threaten to susp nd diplomatic relations with England They had better watt till they have a few. The Southern Government hu just about aa much money aa the wool of uollin's ram would sell for. Jeff Davis aays that the time la pregnant with great events. Ay. but he eanrt be the father of them. In a double sense the flying and pillaging rebels atop at nothing. It is very true, as the abolitionists say, that, if there bad been no slarM, there would hare been no war. But may it not alao be true, that, if there had been no abolitionists, there would have been no war??Lou. Journal, OS arch 16. If there had been no slavery, there could hare been no abolitionism ; cause preoedes effect. Logic. True, if their had bean no slavery, there conld have been no abolitioniam; and, if there had been no property, there could have been on robbery ; and, if there had been no house*, there could bare been no arson ; and, if there had been no marriages, there oould have been no adultery; and, it there had been no people, there could have been no murder. Wendell Phillips oome out to learn something about Western manners, and Cincinnati gave him an egg-Mmple. It is too bad. Folks are getting to oall the Confederate armies the Considerate armies. The Southern Confederacy, out of gas, out of sperm candles, out of lamps, has got to tmpering. The rebels like to fight on the tops of hills a a ?? * ... on mquniiiDB, ior men mej can easily slops. A correspondent of the Norfolk Beacon predict* that Humphry Marshall will yet fill the Presidential ohair of the Southern Confederacy. He will break it down unless it ia bomb-proof. The Norfolk Day Book says that, when the Merrimao goea out, she "will carry everything before her*/," Ac. Let her go out with an "if,'' and the Monitor may dispose of her with a butt. If Gen. McClellan were to fall in his mighty enterprise, we know not which woald exult moat?hii Southern or his Northern enemies. It i> said that the Iojral prisoners at Mem pan are covered witA vermin and nearly starved?a great deal less eating than eaten. Floyd said some time ago that he would give his last drop of blood to cement the South. The La Croase Democrat thinks he oonoluded to tare his cement when he found that Foote had so maoh mortar. Whenever oar troops march upon a rebel force, the latter, who probably never heard of Chesterfield, are guilty of the gross rudeness of turning their backs upon their visitors. Our forces played a winning game at BowII ?V ?. >* * iiuk vjjoo*} u'4b ibbj unvon I J01 031(16 ft 1U strike in the Mississippi. The rebels, wherever they go, seem to have k passion for barning everything under heaven exeept gunpowder. A Tennessee paper says that Floyd, "far from being disooaraged, is all animation." Then, if we catch him, he may tarn out to be a ease of suspended animation. The rebels say that their armies, if defeated, will retire for aefenoe each to some mountain fectaees. We have been admiring their fastness for some time.
