Vivier, the celebrated honi-player, is one of those men of whom anecdotes are told—an ec centric insister upon having his own way, he ing whimsically peculiar. In England lie made a great sensation with liis first concert, and invitations fo play at pri vate concerts were a necessary sequence. On the day after 'accordingly, a noble lord called upon the artist, and, giving a pull toliis cravat in the English fashion of a salute, with bis hat ou, lie said, in bad French: “ You must come to-morrow evening and play ior the Duobess ot Sutherland.” Vivier looked steadily at the nobleman, and said with a significant gesture: “Take off your hat!” “What'.’ asked the visitor. “Take offyoui hat!” “Ah!—in England we have the custom of keeping our hats on.” “Takeoil'your hat!” Yielding to the pertinacity of these four words, which the artist would have gone on repeating thirty times if necessary, the noble man took off his hat, and said ones more: “You must come to-morrow evening, and play for the Duchess ot Sutherland!” "You speak French very badly,” replied the artist, “instoau of that impolite phrase, you should have said—'The Duchess ot Sutherland wishes very much to hear you play, and she has requested me to inquire whether you will do her the pleasure of coming to the party which she proposes to give to morrow even ing.”’ .m uui in r.n”ianu we express it tne oth er way.” “Very possibly—but unless you express it in the better way I have described to you, I shall take no notice of the invitation.” The Englishman, evidently very angry, re peated the iuvitation as directed. “I am happy to accept the invitation of the Duchess,” said the artist. “They will give ten pounds,” added the nobleman. “There again,"Is an ill-bred manner of treat ing a delicate subject,” said Vivier; “1 should have left it to the discretion of the Duchess; hut, sii ce you have so very uuecieiuouiously overpipped the barrier, permit me to say that ‘ten-pounds’ is not enough.” “All! but in England we only give ten pounds to an instrumeutist. To singers, like Grisi or Mario, we give fifteen.” “I shall not play tor any price less than twenty-five pounds sterling.” “Do you kuow said the Englishman, knit ting his brow, “twenty-five pounds are six hundred and thirty-five francs of your mon ey ?” “My price, notwithstanding.” “Well, you shall have it. Sul do your best, and he punctual.” “1 shall be ready when the Duchess’ car riage calls tor me,” said V ivier. “Eh! do you expect a carriage to be sent tor you? It isnot the custom in England.” " I am very sorry—but I donotiide in hack ney coaches, and it Madam, the Duchess, does not choose to send her own carriage tor me, I shall not come !” “ Very well,” said the Englishman, looking perfectly amazed, hut submitting, spite of him self, to the tone of authority and dignified manner which the artist assumed: “ The car riage shall be sent tor you.” At nine the next evening, punctually drove up the Duchess’ chariot, with its footman in livery, and V ivier was received with very un usual politeness—a result, evidently, of the de scription ot his manners given by iier Grace's envoy. From that time the eccentric horn player became triumphant. What thi: Japanese .Juooi.ebs Do.— One of the leafs of the Japanese jugglers now in San Francisco on their way to the Paris exposition, is thus described : An old man lies upon his back with his feet in the air, a little boy mounts and stands upon them. An oval tub is passed to the hoy, which be places under his feet and upon the man’s, another is given to him which is added to the first, and so on until the little fellow’s head touches the proscenium from the top of the tottering pile, wihch is all the time supported by the strong and muscular chap below. The little lellow makes his salaam to the audience from his dizzy height, cooly fans himself as he surveys the situation, aud ap pears as unconcerned as if reposing on ten a iinna. Suddenly one of the perlormers ut ters an ffSclamatiou iu the Japanese which is responded to by an another. The old man, the foundation of the pile, takes up the cho rus, the little fellow at the top jerks it out like the suapper of a wuip,tbe lbuudation”gives lus feet a kick—thitigs look squally lor little Tommy—the audience tear he will tall and break his neck or be terribly bruised arnoug the boxes; the old uiau beneath appears iu imminent danger also from the falling tubs, hut no, he gives his ieet a kick, throws the tubs entirely Horn him, aud Tommy drops like a cat, ali liting with his ieet upon the old man’s and in an upright position.

Hardly a day passes but we are consulted by one or more young men with the above disease, some of whom are as weak and emaciated as though they bail the consumption, and by their friends are supposed to have it. All such cases yield to the proper and only correct course of treatment, and in a short time are made to rejoice in perfect health. niatld !«*-.% g#*«l There are many men of the age of thirty who are troubled with too frequent evacuation* from the blad der, often accompanied by a slight smarting or burn ing sensation, ami weakening tiie system in a man ner the patient cannot account for.

There are many men who die of this difficulty, ignorant of the cause, which is the SECOND STAGE OF SEMINAL WEAKNESS.

THE AMERICAN PATENTED IMPROVEMENT TANNING COMPANY, of New York, own the exclusive right in the United States for the manutac ture of an imperishable “EXTRACT” from Hemlock Bark for tanning purposes. The Bark Extract is now' extensively used among Tanners, and the de mand lor it rapidly increasing. It commands a ready sale in the Boston, New York and Philadelphia mar kets, at sixtv cents per gallon. The appliances for manutactuiing are simple and not expensive, costing but little more than the onlinary leaches used bvTan uers. By this process, 11 coals of Dark may be re duced so as to Concentrate the entire strength into forty gallons of extract, without in the slightest de gree injuring its tanning qualities, and at a cost not exceeding one dollar per cord. The saving in freight alone, between the transportation of the Extract and the bark, will range from six to eight dollars per cord, so that any one who may get out but three hundred cords of bark per year, may save from two thousand to twenty-five nundreu dollars in the difference in freight. The Company does not propose to sell Territorial rights, but will grant exclusive privilege to manufac ture in certain localities, charging a small royalty per gallon on the amount manufactured. The Company will send competent men to superin tend the construction of the works, where parties de sire to enter into the business, and to instruct in tbc manufacture of the Extract. As a guarantee of success to parties entering into this business, the Company will contract to take all the Extract manufactured under their process at fifty cents per gallon, delivered in Boston or New York.
