Light mists roll over the river, And cover her dreamless rest; Wind guest hath a sweeter chamber? What chamber a lovelier guest ? —ATor them Ltght*. ntlruiUM. Some time ago a friend sent we, with his compliments, a very curious preaent. 10 oit ward appearance it was a box ot cigars. I was lather surprised at this, lor the reason that I do not smoke, and moreover my Inenu. hav ing been an editor lor the last ten years, is not in a pecuniary condition which would render it prudent lor him to make very nu merous presents ol cigars at the current prices. X opened the lid and discovered that the Imjx was filled with small slips of printed paper, neatly tied into little bundles and closely packed. 1 cut the ribbon of one of the bun dles, aud spreading the slips on the table found that tbev were twenty-five conundrums. In fact, it was a box ol conundrums. My friend had taken the fancy to cut them from ex changes, of w hich he looked over piles every <1 mv, and to pack them in this peculiar man ner. i counted the bundles, aud made v inous computations iu reference to them. 1 do not remember the exact results—I have no mem ory tor ti gin es—but in a general way mated that I could supply a country weekly paper with a column of conundrums for each issue during the space of four years and six months. 1 judged, however, that one-eighth of a column would be as many as an ordinary reader would heartily enjoy in each paper, aud, at that rate, I would have been able to keep the journal supplied with conundrums for thirty-six years. i must confess that I was at a loss what nse to make of this present. To attempt To Wad all the contents of the box was out ot ques tion. Could I make them marketable? Could I induce some magazine to publish nothing for several months but conundrums, with ‘‘to be continued” at the dose of each number? Could 1 sell them at so much a dozen, as mot to verses are sold ? Or could 1 be still more choice with them and procure a run of cus tom from gentlemen who are required to keep up a reputation for wit to secure luvltatidhs to social dinners, alter the manner ol the per son who wrote that art icle in one of Dickens s Christmas stories, which explains the manner of maxing conundrums from the dictionary ? That person’s idea, X may remark, is old, lor my friend ir,forms me that at one period11 of his life he was timed, on a bet, and pioVtd himself able, with the aid of a dictionary and spelling-book, to make two and a halt eonun diums per minute, for sucli a length of time (being allowed intervals for meals and sleep), that it was quite evident that he could con tinue doing so as Jong as the .English language held out. indeed, he was not limited by the number of words in tbe language, tor fie found it possible to make a great .nauy conundrums on one word. To give me some idea of his method of ope ration, my tvieud took the pains to make as sorted packages illustrative of distinct, styles of couundrums, For instance, there were two packages (fifty) on the single word Tie.” As, tor instance, when is truth falsehood? WJign it lies in a well. There were three packages about ships. You will find in your .spelling book a list of words ending with ship. Ever; oue ot them is capable of a conundrum alter the following style: What ship would be freighted witu knowledge ? .Scholarship. Take ail the technical words used on shipboard (ii you have a complete spelling-book you will find them in one list), and every rue ei those words is capable ot oue or more conundrums. How easy u is! V\ by is a man who marries twice Use a ship ? Because he has a second mate. When may a ship be said to be in love ? Notice how many answers may be made to this: When she wants a mate (there it Is agaiu); when she wants to be maimed; when she is struck aback by a heavy sued; when the carpenter re-guards her; when she makes much of a last sanor; when she ts tender to a man-of-war; when she is a ship of great size (sighs; when she hugs the wind; when she runs down lor a suiaek; when she is alter a consort; when she is attached to u buoy. Bet me begin at the beginning and illus trate some methods of constructing conun drums. Tbe student should commence on the alphaliet. For instance: Why is the Id ler « like dinner? Perhaps you give it uu. The triumphant student answers, because it comes beloref. Here is oue more iugeuinus, on ac count of its associations: Why is China called the celestial land? Because a little l mrses an immortal life out ot an immoral oue. The practical hand can make a these at the rale of one in tnirteeu seconds. Thus. Why is « a strong letter? Because it is al ways in health, if the alphabet were alive, why would you find it difficult to lad it? Be cause you could not put 0 out ot being. Why is c a iurtunate letter? Because it is always iu luck, i ou will perceive that the whole alphabet can lie used in tbe last tiorm. L, n and k the same as c, aud the other letters in this manner: Why is a au untorlunate let ter? Because it is always out ot luck. A la dy asks a gentleman to whom she is engaged, At by is it like a ring? He gives it up. Be cause we can lie vred with it. Again, Why is d likely to be drowned ? Because it is un der tbe sea. W’by is i the happiest of vow els? Because it is always in buss while e is hell aud the others In purgatory. Agaiu you can use aiorra like this: Why'will fne letter s long he remembered by the Americans? Because it is the begmmug of secession and the end of Davis. These conundrums are easily made, and il limitable; but they are only to be used by be ginners, or lor the sake of variety. 'There are several other methods for beginners. Take the numeral adjectives. What word is that ot live letters H orn which if you take away two of them only one will be ictt? St-one. What word is that of eight letters from which, it you take away five, ten will still be left t Ten deucy. Tf you look iu the dictiouaiy you will find about a hundred words beginning with the syl lable -ten,” all of which you can turn into conundrums as last as you can talk. There are any number ot puzzles to lie made on the principle used by Arteinus Ward oi putting the ngure 4 lor the word -tor.” That is not nearly as ingenious as the children s method oi spelling potatoes—put one o, put two o s. put three o's, put tour o s, put live o s, put six os, put seveu os, put eight os. But to illus trate : W uat day in the year is au injunction to go forth i* March 4th. Whp is wealth like a j.roolcm iu figures ( Because it is s-otwithiu'' to (cipher.) ounnany with punctuation,, as in the phrases "puttiug a peiipd to your existence,” ‘putting a stop to a woman’s tongue.” ieveu have conundrums iu which comma is twisted into come-ma and colon into coal-on. Then are otner methods which l cannot stop to consider; as, what word is ujw^xh pronounced wrongWily - wrong,” pt course. Wlmt word is pronounced quicker by addiug a syllable to it” tjuick, etc. Take the syllable bee. Wby is making hon ey like whipping > Because it in a bee- • boring business. Take tht same syllable ia" See iroiu what remote jsalut - “S5*’11 conundrum nually couujs 4u,i- following titulary; lv*,> is t\ Insq-filv^ -cl to the dic tate i* 'A. bee-hive is u v o like a retieu po ur is a spectatwr. • ■ nee-holder, abee-hoid to. iu tfie swo-' spectator is a rotten pota p lease til tr -e way the fish said to be most vaJesc-- ->a happy wife is her-iing; a con v-' me dyspeptic is said to be like a re lieved criminal, because he cannot digest yet; a child wuo gets stout as he gets taller is said to be like a newspaper reporter, because be picks up intormatiun, die. Tbe incongruity oi the two subjects said to resemble cacti other is tbe merit ol the follow ing: Why iu an old man like a dogs tail'! Be cause be is in-tirm. in lc50 tbe Universa list Society at Lynn olfered a reward ot a sc-i ol silver spoons ior the best conundrum.

Gen. Sheridan in the House.— The Washington coirespondent of the New York Times gives the following account of the tu multuous reception accorded to General l’hil. Sheridan on the occasion of his late visit, to the House of Representatives: As he ei.tered, accompanied by Geu. Grant, the greatest curiosity was exhibited by the members to see him, and lie was immediately surrounded by a large number who eagerly pressed forward for an introduction. The seats ot mote than half of the Republican members weie vacated, and quite a number from the opposite side thronged about him. Filially* Gen. Schenck proposed a recess tor the pur pose ol a formal presentation, which was agreed to, and Speaker Colfax conducted the hero to his chair, where, in a tew appiopriate words, alluding to him as the brave-t ot the brave and the truest of the true, he formally presented him to the House. The clapping ol hands, both on the floor and in the galleries, was almost deafening and hardly suspended while the General replied: “Gentlemen, i am much obliged (or this flattering and unexpect ed reception.'’ Descending from the chair, .Speaker CoJliix formally introduced the diller ent members to him, as they passed before him in solid column. Radicals, Republicans, Conservatives, Democrats, Copperheads and all, witli the exoeplion of a few ol the latter, ottered themselves for the distinguished honor of a presentation. T he recess having expired, »he House was called to order again and the t vo great Generals took seats on the Republi can side ot me House, sandwiched in between Thad. Stevens and Gen. Scheuck. A number ot Senators anil oilier Uistiuguished persons who happened to be on the floor were then introduced to ibem. A more enthusiastic and unanimously heartfelt compliment lias never before l.eeu paid to any visitor by the Hmisc and “Little i’liil.” will Have reason to lone re-’ memtier the earnest congratulations bestowed on him to-day. .

The unfortunate should be particular in selecting his physician, as it is a lamentable yet incontroverti ble fact, that many syphilitic patients arc made mis erable with ruined constitutions by maltreatment from inexperienced physicians in general practice; for itisu point generally conceded by the best svphilogra pliers, that tlie study and management of these come plaints should engross the whole time of those who would be competent and successful in their treat ment and cure. The inexperienced geueral practi tioner, having neither opportunity nor time to mak himself acquainted with their pathology, commonly pursues one system of treat mem, in most cases mak ing an indiscriminate use of that antiquated and dan gerous weapon, the Mercury.
