An absent-minded man who went for a square mejl was absurd enough to call for three rounds of toast.

When Brigham Young's children siug "Father, dear father, come home," the effect is said to be wonderful. The old man comes home without delay. "Floating down the sea of matrimony, by the light of the honeymoon," is the way a city editor touchingly alludes to the marriage ol his son.

"Do you like Browning?" asked a reading man of a young lady whom he had taken down to a dinner. The fair creature by his side (who was no bookworm) answered, "Tes—that is, I like crackling."

The latest novelty in skirt trimmings is the "circle flounce," which, be>ng cut bias in a circle shape, has no fullness at the top, but hangs full at the bottom like a circle cape. It is necessary to have a pattern to cut this flounce. It is a curious fact, remarks an exchange, that the early English kings used to lie in state after death. It is ι-ven more curious than the (act that later Christian statesmen can't wait untii death, but lie in Congress, and out of it, upoi. the slightest provoca tion. There are evidences of a growing civiliza tion in Texas. Her towns are beginning to enjoy the excitements of the oldest and best established cities of the Atlantic coast. A banker in Denison lately absconded with all the deposits on hand, amounting to nearly $100,000, aud yet the people are not content ed or happy. Mr. Wright Johnson, a venerable gentle man of six years, and Miss Bertha Sykes, whose locks had beeu thinned and sil vered by the fligh', of five years, arrived by rs ilway in St Loui:·, recently, having fled from the tyranny of their parents in St. Charles, Mo., with the intention of being matrimonially united. A kind-hearted po liceman who kuew how, took them in charge and dosed them with lollypop and sweet things until they c >uld be sent back home. The importations of pictures for private galleries in New York last year were enor mous, reaching over $1,000,000. One gen tleman paid duties on his importations to the amount of $10,000, and the disbursements of others were almost in equal proportion. It is estimated that about $2,500,000 was spent by persons residing in New York and other cities throughout the United States last year for oil paintings and statuary alone, a large portion of which amount weut to Eu rope. In speaking of Bev. Dr. Moses Stuart, the veuerable Bev. Dr. Todd of Pittsfield says, "Protessoi Stuart was a decided dyspeptic; and I now can see that he was injudlcous as to the amount, and the violence of his exsreise, and also in the time of day when he took it. I have no doubt that he and the good Dr. Payson often mistook the miseries of a weak digestion for the hiding of God's face ; and that they uttered many groans of agony over their sins, which groans were really the re sults of a morbid state of the stomach." Large and attractive signboards are a great feature of Chinese shops, and the words upon them are a strange mixture of the flowery literature of the land and the advertising in stinct of a commercial people. One or two Pefein signboards will illustrate their general character; "Shop of Heaven-sent Luck;" '•Tea Shop of Celestl Ί Principles "The Nine Felicities Prolonged "Mutton Shop of Morning Twilight;" "The Ten Virtues all Complete;'' "Flowers rise to the Milky-way." In these signs we see that the Chinaman can combine the soul of a poet with the pocket of a shopman. A "reg'lar built" vampire came on hoard the steamship Nevada, somcwheic on the Pa· cific, and a daring sailor bagged him. He is said ίο resemble a pterodactyl, but that is rather indefinite,as no pterodactyls have been observed about here for several seasons. It is moie satisfactory to learn that it closely re sembles a blaek-and-tan terrier dog, with wings stretching three or four feet from tip to tip, and teeth half aa inch long, with the use of which it seemed quite familiar. It resent ed all attempts at familiarity, and is supposed to be a full-rigged vampire, of the species that put a man to sleep with their wings and then suck his heart's blood.

In the parlors the narrow range of thought and conversation is even more noticeable than at the clubs. Here the ladies set tbe tone ; and, kiud as they usually are, bright and pretty as they often are, there is unmis takably among them an unconsciousness of all outside certain narrow limits that custom has prescribed for them. The freedom and gayetv which are not uncommon In the par lors of Americans of the best class will bo hard to find in the drawing-rooms of English iashicnahles. They talk, professedly. Up^u those common topics which should form tn ordinary conversation they do very well, and, among the brighter of them, a kind of wit and wisdom is permitted But that is apt to be α ία mode. The wit is badiy watered. I am not sure, however, that fashionable wis dom and watered wit are peculiar to London. All society-wit is somewhat diseased. The wit th r,'cl1 all(1 i(lle men is poor.

Our imitative and imprefMble so ciety leaders, seeing something admirable in English aristocratical style, copy tUt accents and gestures, forgetting that they too would seem admirable to others were they to sneak naturally. ^ As a rule, women in English society are re markably natural—negatively natural, I mean. English girls are particularly simple and unassuming. They are innocent of all efforts to impress or astonish. As all woman kind does and should do, they make them selves as pretty as they can ; but as to per sonal superiorities, their educaiors do not lay enough stress upon such things to make them ambitious to excel in that way. All young ladies are taught a certain mode of deportment, which is e> Cf lient to far as It goes. The chief preceptof the code, whether inculcated openly or oy the silent feeling of society, Is that each youn6 lady must do M the rest. That "young English girl," who is the theme of the novelists and the maga zine bards and artists, easily merits all the adulation she receives. Doe* not all the world know, is it not almost an imperti nence to say, that for dignity, modesty, pro priety, sense, and a certain soft self-posses sion, she has hardly her equal any where? But the British maiden Is taught that ambi tion in character is not a desirable thing. The naturalness and propriety which ac company this state of mind are not particu larly adairable. E. S. Nadal In April At lantic. A Queer Fish. Last week when Seth Gre. η was at May ville on busines, his attention was called to a strange fish which had been taken from Chautauqua Lake and preserved. It is dif ficult to give a minute discription ol this fish( as there is no variety well known with which it can be compared. The fish is about six feet in length, and when caught weighed one hundred and thirty-four pounds. There are one back and three belly fins. But the head is what is m ist wonderful and peculiar about the fish. The mouth opens far back and wide enough to receive a nail cask. There is a large falling lip or jaw that sets back and upward as the mouth opens. The inside of the mouth is coveted with a species of coarse hair somewhat resembling the small feathers or down of an ostrich. Projecting for almost fourteen inches from the upper jaw is a >-ort of shovel blade made of a bard tube tance. a His instiument would seem to b« intended for throwing food into the mouth rather than lor attacking other objec's or defending iUelf against assault. As this fish has no teeth, it is supposed that it subsists upon animalcule or otber substances floating in the water, which are drawn or forced into the mouth by the blade attached to its jaw. It is said that only three of these fish bave been seen at Chautauqua Lake, and none of these were seen in full lile and activity. The first was found about forty years ago, the second four yi^ar ι since, and the one which we have attempted to describe was taken from the water a few months since in a help less and dying condition. If the^e fish live to any extent they are in the deep water, and not biting, and being beyond the reach of the fisherman, are rarely seen. When they be come disabled or give out from old age, they may come to the surface and drift ashore as did this. There is no fish reported in the books belonging to the lakes that rtsembles this. The outlet of the Chautauqua has been so obstructed by dams for the last haif century that no such fish could enter that lake by -vay of the Mississippi, Ohio and Alleghany, the outlets of tbe lake. It may be that a lew of these scragglers got in there before the dams were made, and are spending their old age there and occasionally dyit g. It would be interesting to have this fish exhibited to Agassiz or some other eminent naturalist, to eet his idea of its origin and to wnat tribe it belongs—[Rochester Union. A Clerical Joke. There is a gay young Massachusetts preach er in Pittsburg named White who appe re to be fuller of fun than is usual wit j men of hi* cloth. It is said he lately drank too freely of old Monongahela and got on aa unrighteous spree. It would not nave made so much difference if the man White only had got drunk, but in this case the preacher White became tipsy and played tricks upon his office. He was roaming around generally, and at length went to the Western Hotel to take a rest. Here he found a young com fiany enjo , iug themselves in one of the par ors, and he gradually mingles with them and talked himselt into their toleration, if not confidence. At length, to vary the pro gramme of pastimes, he proposed that tbere should be a marriage, and said he was a good preacher to perform the ceremony. They agreed that he was and took up the idea. A young m au and a young woman were found who had never seen each other before that night, and they consented to stand for the groom and bride. Preacher White per formed the ceremony and pronounced the couple man and wife. He then astonished the company and especially the coupla aforesaid, by announcing very solemnly that the marriage was no joke so far as he was concerned, that he was a duly ordained min ister and had lied a very hard knot. In this extremity old Donaldson was sent lor, and before him White testified that the coupl· were legally and lawfully married. Nothing further could be done then. Tbe papers do not state how the young couple finally settled it. At last accounts they were cc&sultiug whether, in their curious predicament. It were better to take their wedding as a joke or a practical reality. Jefferson's Official Delicacy. Jefferson was clear in his great office, and he lived up to his great principles. Being asked bv a neighbor to wnte something that should help him into Congress, Jefferson «aid, "From a very e rlj*moraent of my life, I de termined never to intermeddle with election* by the people, and have invariably adht red to this determination." Much as he loved his old friend and Secretary, William Short, he would not assist him to sell the little pub lic stock which he possessed, saying, "I would do anything my dnty λ ou Id permit; but were I to advise your jgent (who is him self a stock-dealer) to sell out your* at this or that moment, it would e used as a signal to guide speculation." Invited to share In a promising speculation, he declined, on the ground that a public man should preserve hi* mind free from all possible bias of iuterest. When the fugitives from the St. Domingo massacre arrived in 1703, destitute and miser able, he wrote to Monroe: "Ne.er was so deep a tragedy presented to the feelings of man. I deny the power of the general gov ernment to apply money to such a purpose, but I deny it with a bleeding Heart. It be longs to the State governments. Pray mge ours ta be liberal." In bis French package came one :ij> a letter froui the wife of a groom in the stables of the Duke of Orleans in Paris, addressed to ber sister, a pooc wo man who lived fifteen miles trom Montlcello. He was careful to enjoin it upon his daughter not merely to forward the letter, but to send' it to the woman's house by a special messen ger.—James Barton in April Atlantic. .HIICKLLANGOCi NOTICES.
