The idea is said to have flashed upsn the intellect of a lady of fashion while she was observing the winning ways of the big ostrich in Central Park. A fond father recently wrote : "It gener ally takes ten years of training to eradicate the word 'riice' from a woman's vocabulary. The Falls of Niagara, the Psalms of David, and the progress of the Luman ra e were all "nice' to my eldest till she got married. It must be evideLt, to every one who has given the subject much attention, that but few writers know how to spell Megg Mer reelees correctly. Our own method will clearly indicate that Sir Walter Scott himself was as ignorant in this respect ad the major ity of them. Quill pens, which a few years ago were de spised as being of the old fogy order, are com ing into favor again. This is partly owing to the very inferior quality of many of the kinds of steel pens now in the market ; partly to the tact that most writers like to show that they are "sound upon the goose." It was Daniel who said "Many shall run to and fro,and knowledge shall be incieased." He clearly referred to reporters in this re mark, and this suggests the idea tbat Daniel was in that line himself; it is certaiu at all events tbat he was allowed to pass in free to see the lions. • - Harriet Prescott (Mrs. R.

The noble earl bas man aged to compress what he has to say on this comprehensive theme within the compass pi a single octavo volume. > A man In Detroit was recently found over come by whiskey, and had to be carried home on a sleigh. A boy, who supposed the man was dead, ran on and informed his wife, who met the crowd at the gate, and, in broken ac cents, iuquired of one of the men, "Do you think I ought to present this life insurance policy to the agent this afternoon?" She seemed quite disappointed when she learned the truth. The Junior Bar Association of San Fran cisco is reported to have recently discussed the Cain-Abel case of alleged homicide in the light of modern uiiminal jurisprudence. Af ter much deoate as to whether any impie ment used by Cain could come within the le gal definition of a "deadly weapon," or whether the evidence showed sufiicient time for premeditation to make it murder in the first degree, or whether Abel didn't really die for want of proper sursical attendance, or whether most of the testimony should not be excluded on technical grounds, it was finally determined that any competent counsel of the present day could easily have secured » disar greement of the jury on the composite plea of self-defence and emotional Insanity.—Jf· *· World "The Watch-dog'ofthe Treasury." Very probably he is occupied iu construct in^ specimens of that mysterious signature which ornaments all our paper moi ey, and i· to most men a liddle more unsnlvable than any that (he Sphinx ever propounded. Trans lated, it is E. F. Spinner. We observe that the pen with which it is written is of pecu'iar construction, and lias three points, and that the ink used has the thickness and consistency of mud and the blackness of Egyptian dark ness, and is "piled up" on the paper to a height ol which we would be incredulous had we ι ever seen it, and which, having been seen, renders us more incredulous still. Thl· * delightful quality in the ink, the messenger informs us, ts produced by long exposure to an open vessel ; to be accurate, in an old pitcher with a broken nose. It is astonish ing we are turtber told, to note the number of people, principally from the country districts, who stray into the Treasurer's room during the course of a year for the purpose of shak ing hands with ''the man who makes that funny signaturer' and of looking wondeiing ly on to see ho «. he makes it- We are quite sure to be affably received, unless some cir cumstance of an unusually disturbing nature has occurred, for "the General," as he is fa miliarly called, notwithstanding his reputa tion for the use of stiong words, is really a man of uncommon good-nature. Even when provoked to one of his ebullitions of righte ous wrath, his bark is .>roverbially worse than his bite, and the goodness if his heart usually leads him to make reparation for vio lence of language by lenity of action. So it happens that applicants for tavor» at his hands are sometimes told by their friends, who know the old gentleman's peculiarities, that it is a favorable circumstance t at ou the first presentation ol their cases they have been roundly scolded, since the chances are, that after the first heal of temper baa cooled, penitence tor undue harshness will lead him on second consideration to erant their re quests. Not even the General's most aident admireis—and no man bas more—will claim , that he is a handsome man. And even should they have the hardihood to do so. the tignetle on certain fifty-cent notes, of which there are many still in circulation, would furnish a complete refutation of their assertion. But to be fair, the shin plasters do not do bim justice, mere is an expression 01 nonestj and openness of nature about bis homely features, and a twinkie of humor in tbe eye, which the artist baa failed to reprod ce, and which lender the face, like Lincoln's, kind and genial and far from unpleasing. A griz zly mustache, cut unreasonably short at tbe corners of the nouth does not help to supply ibe lack of beauty in tbe features. The wide, determined mouth, aud tbe square, heavy chiu, suggest tbe irreverent idea that personal appearance, no less than watchful care, of the nation's treasure may have led to tbe be stowal of the sobriquet of "Watch dog of th· Treasury," by which the faithful Treasurer is bo well known. Toe room is of moderate size and plaioly furnished, and gives evidence that of the vast amount of money which has passed through bis office, but little bas been ustd to minister to tbe Treasurer's comfort. A door opens into a still smaller apartment in which the Treasurer sleep». Tbe responsibility of tbe safe-keeping of hundreds of millions is too great to be devolved upon others, and tbe General therefore re .ts where he can in a moment asture himself that tie public trea* uie in his kevping ϋ safe. Once, befoie be began sleeping at tbe Treasury, he was awakened in tlie nlgbt by ast.ong impression that something was wrong at the Depart ment. He lay for a long time tossing uneasi ly on his bed, and trying to close bis eyes and convince himself tbat it was a mere freak of an over taxed brain ; "but it would not be driven away. At last, about two o'clock in the morning, in order to assure himself tbat bis impression was at lault. be arose, hastily dressed, and set out for the Tn asury. On his way he met a watchman from the De partment, hastening to arou»e him w.th the iuformation tbat the door ot one of the vaults had just been found standing wide open. A careless clerk, whose duty it was to close and lock tbe door had failed to perform his duty that night, and the watchman on going bis rounds had discovered bis neglect. Since that night tt>e Treasurer bas inspected the doors and locks of the vaults himself, and has satisfied himself, by attempting to turn the handles, that they are securely locked. The inspection is made twice every evening— once soon after tbe departure of tbe clerks, and again before retiring to rest. There are few public officers whose sense of duty and responsibility constrains tbem to thus sacri fice their own time and comfort in the inter ests of the government. The moneyed re sponsibility is indeed tremendous, and such, we venture to· assert, as never fell on the shoulders of one man before. Tbat we do uot exaggerate is evidenced by the fact that the notes, bonds, and securities id tbe vaults of the Treasurer's office amount on an av erage to eight hundred million dollars.— from "An Hour Among the Greenback* Scrith nef » for April. Clean Hands. The world moves. It is not to respectable as it was a lew years ago to be a rascal. People are learning the lesson that clean hands are desirable, both for personal comfort and pleas ant social int-rcourse. Tiny really seem to be learning that purity pays, and that person al honor and incorruptibleness are a good in vestment. Rogues and rings are having a tough time of it, and it is their own fault if the yonng and ambitious men iho are now coming upon tbe stage of action do not learn to place so high a price upon themselves that neither wealth nor power can buy tbem. Tlje rascalities of the New York Ring are >11 ex posed, and the members of tbat Ring bave either ruu away, or are staggering before pub lic opinion and the law, disgraced ana de graded men. Bribery in Congress stands ex posed and rebuked, while names thai were pure have received a tarnish that can never be polished i.way Men who hVI2 1 · d their heads bigh in the nation b w those heads in shame < ve." 1 a ids which are soiled beyond cleaning. We call no names, but, scatter >d up and t own the land, great reputations lie lu ruins. Meu who had wealth which they stole, and men who used their public office to push their pri vate schemes, are thrown high and dry out of influence, aDd lie all ex,<osed upon the rocks of disgrace, where they are sure to rot or go to pieces. If tbe young politicians of tbe country will learn the lesson that the fact· which we have recounted are so well calculated "to teach, better times for the country lie in the future. Personal advantage is a mean mo tive to appeal to, wbee so viu.1 a question as personal purity is concerned, but, as there is no dauger to morals from any other appeal, it well to meet temptation on its own ground and fight it with its own weapons. Tbe lesson of the recent exposures is really needed by none but those who fancy that they can" compass their ends best by ba.-e means; and if these shall learn from it I hat, in the long run, nothing pays so well in wealth and power and safety and com ort as virtue, they will learn that which will be of incalculable benefit to them and to the country. No money was ever won by treaci-ery to trust that did not barm tbe win ner, No power was ever achieved by bribery or retained by falsehood that did not scotch the palm of him who held it. Tbe conscious ness of ill-desert, the loss of self-res pect, tbe fear of exposure and the self-commituent to a life of deception, which go always with possessions un worthily won, are poison in the blood, and the exposure, sonner or later, is as sure to 'ome as death.—Dr. J.
