But its unfinish ed condition, together wi th want of adequate means for its completion, renders It absolutely necessary that a general effort should now be made to help forward a charity, which will reflect honor upon the State, and prove a blessing to its citizens for all time to come F The Executive Oornmittee have therefore designated Sub-Corn nittees in various localities throughout the State for co-operation in this matter, and to them is com mitted largely the charge, audio groat measure will depend the success of this enterprise. The special purpose of this appeal is. however, to awaken enquiry among the people, and stimulate contributions in money or articles suitable for the Fair, facilities for collecting v,hich, through the local committees, will be rendered easy ana practicable in every section. J Men, women and children of Maine: this is your Insiltution, and to you we now appeal for aid in this emergency.

A young lady recently, on being requested to sing “The Maiden’s Prayer,” immediately favored a Rockford audience with “Mother, may I go out to swim?” Mr. Carlyle is reported to have spoken of the Dublin University bill as “an amorphous botch, out of which nothing endurable can ever be made.” Certainly the force of imagination is won derful eitlie'to beget iu us an ability for the doing of that which we apprehend wo can do, or a disability for the not doing ot that which we conceive we cannot do.—Bakewell. A retired actress has been teaching elocu tion to the children in Carsou City, and the old people declare that all the young folks say “beeyoutifool skcey,” and “nobul juke.” r riends must be used with shuteyes, am as objects of prime necessity, just as we ea our daily bread without prying curiously t< j see who makes it or how it is made. With every one the expectation of a mis fortune constitutes a dreadful punishment. Suffering then assumes the proportions of the unknown, which is the sonl’s infinite.—Bal zac.

Tis a mournful hour in life when a man comes to the conclusion that fame, love, and happiness are not worth a good cigar. ‘Tis a still more mournful hour when a man comes to the conclusion a cigar itself is worthless.

This anecdote is told of Proudhon, the great French socialist, and illustrates most forcibly the intensity and exaggeration of his radicalism. In conversation one day with Prince Napoleon, the prince asked him what was the form of society of which he dreamed. Proudhon said: One in which I shall be guil lotined as a conservative. A correspondent ot the Charleston News says that at a private entertainment, given by Mr. Marble in honor of Professor Tyndall, he and Henry Ward Beecher had a regular set-to on the subject of spiritualism, the re sult of which was that Mr. Beecher “over whelmed and silenced his less voluble antag onist.” It is thought that a twenty pound pressure steam-whistle could have accom plished the job in half the time.—Commercial Advertiser.

Tue “Creeping” of Railroad Rails has attracted some attention of late, and while we do not attempt to explain it, we of fer a po’nt on the fact that, on lines runuing north i nd south, the western rail “creeps” than the eastern rail; that is, this strange movement of the rail toward the south is more marked in one rail than in the other on the same track. Furthermore, it has been noticed that on such a line the eas tern rail wears out the fast ‘St. Both of these points, we think can be explained by the mo tion of the earth as it turns from the west to waixl the east. Everything that has tree mo tion is dragged after the whirling globe: every wind that blows, and every tide that moves feels the influence, and our train going north or south is pulled over toward the ealt and naturally presses the eastern rail most n’eavi ly. The western rail, being relieve i of it. share of weight, “creeps” Lra taeVUd quickly. It is also noticed that the wheels on ‘he eastern rail wear out the first, bthtn“ bnt tbink tbat this earth modon cause- The practical side of this j is, tnai the eastern rail and wheels should be i stronger.—Scientific American. Mabvklj.ocs Ending ok a Divobcr i Suit. The Dodge divorce suit at St. Paul j has ended in the most surprising manner. I Mis. Dodge, who was suing for divorce from I her husband on the grounu of his infidelity, j appeared in Court last Friday with a most 1 marvellcmj affidavit. She swore that one ; r inley—with whom she afterward was on the most questionable terms—induced her to bo 1 l!rnLiDodge was false to her, and he I female to substantiate his charges. ! hoi,Mr"' .Dodge brought into her I three to waCOlJSp'r:M,y made up by the i„!v Ib ‘6 alx,ul thc husband's downfall uibutdi.r: d,rlar^ «** «.V»SSSS2I: she swore o h,aV‘e,n0nti',uance °‘ the trial H vore that K nit, ."3- fontrarv- She also swore that Km lev tried to persuade her to poison her husband; that he bought strveh" nine and wished her to place some of It L bon-bons and when she made her Saturday visit to Mr. Dodge s house, to see the chil dren, as allowed by the Court, she was to offer the poisoned article to him. Failing in this, Finley's next plan was to induce 'km. Dodge, wbeu taking the lunch which was usually set for her on Saturday by Mr. Dodge’s servant, to put a biscuit in her pock-. - et, wh cli was to be given to Finley, who, after charging it with poison, was to give it to a dog or eat in the presence of witnesses, and if the animal kicked the bucket, the poison was then to be discovered. Dodge was to be arrested and locked up for attempt ing to murder bis wife, an i then things would be lovely. A nicely laid plot, to be suie, and it might have worked well, but It didn't, for one of Mrs. Dodge’s children took the croup. Dr. C. D. Williams was sent for, who considered the illness of the boy critical, and Mrs. Dodge was thereupon notified of the fact. When she appeared and saw her apparently dying child, her soul was filled with re norse, and in her anguish she ex posed the whole diabolical plot to her hus band in t re presence of Dr. C. D. Williams, who also admits the truth of this state ment. Mrs. Dodge has left St. Paul. Finley de nies the whole story, and says he will be able to prove a conspiracy to destroy him. Johnny Clem. Among the maoy notable persons at the inauguration of President Grant was John L. Clem, of the Twenty-fourth United States Infantry, who reached there a few days since from his regiment at Fort Brown, Texas, in order to place in the National Asylum an in valid soldier. Lieutenant Clem has a nation [ al reputation, and is written down in “Frank ; Moore's Rebellion Record,” andin “Lossing’s , History of the Civil Conflict in America,” as “Little Johnny Clem, the Drummer Boy of Chickamauga,” at which battle he laid aside his drum and assumed the musket the entire day. During the retirement of the Union army from the field he then performed a guerre de mort upon a Colonel of a Texan regiment who had ridden up with a drawn sword demanding his surrender, by suddenly swinging up bis musket from an order arms and emp ying the saddle of his assailant. The daring act of one so young sent his name flying through the count* y. He afterwards had his little horse killed under him. and was wounded in the shoulder at tbe same time, at Atlanta, whilst delivering a dispatch from M jor General Thomas to General Logan. He entered the army in May, 1861, before he was ten years of age, as a drummer boy. aud served with distinction to the end of the war, during which time he was present at Shiloh, and at nearly every other battle in which the Array of the Cumberland was engaged. He is the youngest officer ever commissioned In the United States Army, and Lossing's His tory speaks of him as the youngest persoD, ot whom we have any account, that ever tore arras in battle either in this country or in Europe; and his military record is a mat ter of history upon files of the War Depart ment- Considering his years, he is without a peer either in the Old World or tbe New. Peruvian Women and Their Way*. —JTie life of the young ladies is very retired. It is not considered proper for them to go in to the street unless accompanied by mother or servant. Married ladies have more liberty; for instance, a girl of 15, if she be married (as is often the case), can chaperone an old maid en aunt of 60, while it would be highly improp er for this representative of single blessedness to venture out alone. The manner of dress is very different from our own. Bright colors are worn, and on a pleasant afternoon yon can see all the colors of tbe rainbow "* tbe street, and such a profusion ofj» »«iry I am reminded of tbe old n*“^'r7 rhyme of the woman who had “rins*< on her fingers and bells on her tops-” Mantillas are worn mostly, though the foreigners still hold to their own round hats, and the natives are slowly adoptiug them for they are more becoming, and it is not 1n their power to withstand anything that adds to their attractiveness; but in the early morn ing the streets are filled with these black robed figures going to prayers, with a little negro, about like Rene, trudging along be hind, also in mantilla, and carrying a kneel ing-mat for h-r mistress’s use, as none of the churches are carpeted. There is a church for every saint, more saints, than Sundays, and feast-days far ncarlyevery week, when all the business has to be suspended. A Funny Breach of Promise Suit.— Miss Helena Moses, a New York Jewess, aged 22, pretty, and elegantly attired, most solemnly averred in court, the other day, that Abraham Cohen, aged 18 promised to marry her, after a week’s acquaintance, and that, in honor of the betrothal, she get up an engagement party at an expense of $40, and that she further expended $150 for her wed diug trosseau. But when the wedding day came it didn’t brirg Abraham, so she says that $10,000 is needed to repair the damage it> her feelings. Abraham, strange to say, ut terly repudiates the fair daughter of Israel and her story; he swears he never saw her till she confronted him in court, and that he is a poor boy who works bard for a living, and could not pay a 50 cent installment to ward the appalling sum she claims. He is locked up in default of $1000 bail, and the big wigs will further deliberate. An Interesting Sheep Trade.—At Point Creek, Jackson county, Kv.,a trader had bought a sheep of a resident.
