A satirist says that modern society misses two “lost arts,” conversation and blushing. The publication of an inedited work of La martine is announced. Life is like wine; lie who would dri >k it pure must not drain it to the dregs.—Sir H'. Temple. Three steamers and a Boston ship named Atlantic have been lost within the memory of the present generation. All economical parents will do well to put new binges on the front gate and double line their daughters’ dress sleeves pretty soon. Mr. Froudewlll reply, in a' preface to the second volume of “The English in Ireland,” to the critics of the first volume. Most men like to see themselves in print. Ladies like to see themselves in silks and vel vets. The inmate of a hoarding-house in Hoboken describes the programme of his breakfast as “bells jangled out of tune, and hash.” Society may congratulate itself on the fact that feminine fastness ha9 gone out of fashion entirely. God is glorified, not by our groans, but by our thanksgivings; and all good thought anil good action claim a natural alliance with good cheer.—Whipple. Mark Twain will sail for Europe on the 17th of May, taking with him the manuscript of his new volume, which will be' published si multaneously on both sides of the water. God's image slumbers in our souls till sharp-edged grief cuts here and there, when, lol the semblance of bis form appears sculp tured by the woes of time. The time to look for and cherish compen sations is when t roubles come. If the thorn wounds your finger, consider the beauty and perfume of the rose. Douglas Jerrold, for a long time one of the editors of Punch, said that ths man never lived who could make 366 jokes a year—or even half the number. One a week he thought a very good allowance. A chance may win that by mischance was lost; That net that holds no great, takes little fish; In some things all, in all things none arc cross’d; Few all they need, but none have all they wish. Unminglod Joys here to no man befall; Who least, hath some; who most, hath never all. Southurell, 16th Century. Somebody wants to know whether “light ning calculators” can predict thunder storms, and if so, why Professor Hutchins is not at tached to the Weather Bureau at Washing ton. A student, undergoing bis examination, was asked what was the mode of action of disinfectants. He replied, “They smell so bad that the people open the windows, and the fresh air gets in.” Mr. George Dawson,'the English pieacher, lecturer, and editor of the Birmingham Morn ing Neves, an extreme Badical paper of a high class, is coming to this country to lecture on Shakespeare. The Athenseum says that that there is some prospectof a revised edition of the “En as the information in the last edition (the eighth) is a quarter of a century old. A San Francisco newspaper indulges in the alliteration of “Diabolical Dissection of Dizzy Dignitaries, remorselessly roasted by our roaming reporter,” as the caption of an article on city officials. A fiddle run by steam is the latest Des Moines novelty, and all the inhabitants are trying to invent a contrivance to make them run by steam, loo. Ordinary muscles don’t take them out of hearing fast enough. The use of Credit Mobilier stock one can readily understand,but what our Congressman manage to do with “four gross of stay-laces” isaproblem past human comprehension. They certainly didn't employ them to diminish the great waste at Washington. The proverbial ingenuity of lovers has re ceived a fresh il ustration in an Iowa town, two young men having each invited the wrong young woman to ride, and once away from home, have changed partners and been married. “Fragments from the Parable of the Unjust Steward Applied Specially to Life In surances”, is what a San Francisco clergy man recently preached about. And now we should like to know what company he is agent for. Association with great people sometimes in stigates weak-minded folks to put on a'rs. AnJ alogous to this is the case of a ricketty cld shanty on tbe rocks near Central Park, which, since some grand new houses have grown up close by it, has actually put a brass knocker on its door. Pigasoff knew of only three misfortunes— Sleeping in a cold room in winter, we iring tight shoes in summer, and deeping in the same room with a crying child which one can’t whip. The same cynical indivilual re marked, “There is nothing more disagreea ble than a piece of good fortune th3t comes too late.” Spring on bongbo sltteth, Swcetlie sunne ahlneth; Sumer bringes smiling. And soe tbe jere waxetb; Autumne's colde aires All leaves doe nlppe; Winter alle waeteth And waneth tbe yere. The dogs of Illinois have achieved a decided victory in the Legislature of that State by tbe defeat of a clause authorizing any one to kill them (the dogs, not the legislators) on sight. But they they lose on mutton, owing to the passage of a bill enabling sheep owners to re cover damages for losses sustained by canine indulgences in animal food. Another victim of the use of tobacco is an nounced. He skipped into eternity at three .0 clock on Tuesday afternoon. He was a win some youth, whose brow had been fanned by the gelid airs ot eighty-tour Winters; but last week his treacherous consoler, Nicotine, in troduced him to the ancient enemy Paralysis, and the greeting was so hearty that the wretched victim never left off shaking till he dropped into his grave.—Commercial Adver tiser. Spring Isn't very far advanced, but jet children are out digging up roots to put the blood in order. That is a great notion peo ple have about fixing up the blood when spring comes. They are very particular about their blood. They want to get it in good order. When mosquitoes get round they will regret what they have done. An exchange believes that “if Grant has the cast iron back-bone we think he possesses there is likely to be war between America | and England. Gerald Massey, an English poet, is coming over here to lecture on spirit ualism! There Is no use claiming conse quential or any other kind of damages for such outrages. War is the only remedy. A contemporary states that “the Bey of Tunis recently had four tax collectors put to death by the most excruciating torture. Pub lic morality is said to ran high in that Ma hometan country.” As it is generally the tax collectors who inflict excruciating torturo on the taxpayers, the Bey seems to be obey ing the laws of averages and correcting the balance. The posthumous opera of Balfe. “II Talis mano.” which is to be produced by Mr. Ma pleson, in the approaching opera season, will probably be the best and most enduring proof of the powers of the lamented composer. Unlike most of his previous works, it re ceived lull ccnsiderat;on, and to it all his fac ulties were devoted, exempt from the pres sure of writing to time and to order. We be lieve that the opera was left in all but a com plete state,the conclusion even being sketched out. This sketch Sir Michael Costa has kind ly undertaken to perfect. We need not say with what ability and consciousness the task will be performed. “New Knighthood.” In discoursing of the “New Knighthood'’ in the Independent, Miss Phelps gives a vivid picture of the treatment generally ac PfirdoH tn wnmpn in nnKli/t enn<>...-nwana_in Massachusetts—and says her note-book offers the following comments on the winter’s trauel: Pretty, healthy school-girls, well ruffled and humped, perfectly able to stand and per fectly expecting a seat, receive it. I have thought that, after all, there may be a subtle relic of masculine tenderness for genuine need in this selection, when one pauses to consider the amount of weight car ried by these suffering creatures, in their panniers, chignons, and kilt plaiting. I throw this out as a well-intentioned attempt to be as candid as the circumstances re quire. Wash-women with bundles stand. Old women, so frequently as to lead one to say, at a venture, generally, are seated by the courtesy of their own sex. A young mother, who always goes down town with three children and a bag, usually ohtaips a seat, and usually by the prompt pushing and plotting of another mother, who espies her a halt a dozen car-lengths ahead. A woman with a very little baby in arms Is never allowed to stand by either sex. An old and feeble gentleman is more likely to yield bi9 right to a seat than a young and energet c one. Little Irish boys will not allow a little lady to stand; but do not offer the courtesy to her expressed gratitude, slipping outside shyly In the dignity aud delicacy of untbanked ser vice. A deformed dwarf whom I wot of on “our road” is fond of assistiting cripples up the steps, and apt to be upon the platform If the car is full. The tegulatiou number of passengers upon a side being nine, ten gentlemen will crowd one lady (she being among the earlier arriv als, and there being no more ngrceablc seat for her elsewhere) till for very deeeucy’s sake, she is driven to stand and leave the field to them. The passengers being divided on the true Boston principle of separate education of the sexes, nine men will sit and expectorate upon the dress of nine women (for the use ol the straw as a spittoon amounts to that) the whole way into town; and neither the arm of the law nor the soul of the co-operatkn will grant the clean-mouthed side of the car redress. I intend no gloomy pun, gentl -J men. I have had too many dresses spoiled. “I wonder what you would think,” said a young lady to me the other day, “of wbat I see every day ot my life. My sister and I go into town on the business train. (They are school-teachers.) Where we get upon it there is no platform. We take ‘the long step’ from the ground to the car. Every morning the gentlemen of Ginger • [ill stand in file and push their way b-fore us. When the last man is upon the car and seated wc can get on; not before.” “Why don’t you take your turn with the rest? You are not so physically weak as to be driven to submit to such treatment.” “I wouldn’t touch such men. I wouldn’t push my way through such a crowd. I’d rather wait till I can get on without brush- * ing so much as my dress-hem agaiust them.” This happens every morning at a station not many minutes out from Boston, on the Providence road. I refrain from giving the real name of the place only out of considera tion for the ladies, who object. These are not “Woman’s Rights women.” it will be understood. They do not go Into town to at tend suffrage conventions. They have no de sire for the ballot. They have left no neg lected homes behind them. They pursue their professions as quietly, as modestly (and at such a disadvantage) as a woman may. They have never petitiored in the green room on a hearing for the consideration of fie fact that one-eighth of the teachers in Massachusetts, being men, average half as much again in salary as seven-eighths, being women. They do not ask for the nomina tion of a female school committee, to avenge them of their wrongs. They do not strive nor cry, neither is their voice heard in the streets. They do not in anywise infringe up on those conditions on which tie gallantry of men is supposed to rest. And this is their testimony to it. A Remarkable Murder Trial In France. One of strangest trials of recent years has just taken place at Bordeaux, France, re sulting in the conviction of a man for the murder of five persons. The convicted man was a country postman in the wild flats of the “Landes," and he was convicted entirely on the evidence of his own son, a boy only eight years old. While this postman was away from home his house was broken open, and his wife, her father and mother, and two of her children brutally murdered. No sus picion fell on him, as he was known to have gone t - bed in the post-office, 24 miles away, on the fatal night. Soule time alter the event, the little Bon was found sharpening a knife, and said he wanted it to kill his father for killing hi* mother, his grandfather and grandmother, and his brother and sist.-r. The boy gave evidence against his father with a good many contradictions, as the presiding judge confess ed, but he adhered to the statement that his father had killed his mother. He was exam ined three times, and on the third time waa confronted with his father; but his evidence, whether it was on'y an- in erence of his own or was actually true, was not shaken. The boy caught but a frightened glimpse of the murderer, and then, as a child might, hid his face in the bedclothes and was too much alarmed to answer when the man asked if he was asleep. It is hard to believe that the child would fail to recognize his father’s voice; yet a state of speechless terror was net one in which eveD a prodigy of eight years old could judge with certainty. There was absolutely no confirmatory evidence, and the later was convicted solely on the testimo ny of his little son. The jury, however, felt some doubt, and gave expression to it by find ing the man guilty, “with extenuating cir cumstances.” A more unsatisfactory verdict was never given. If the boy spoke the truth, there were no extenuating circumstances; if liis evidence was false, there was none against the prison er at all. The jury were probably reluctaut that a man's life should be taken on the evi. dence of his own child, and they therefore brought in a verdict which condemns him to hard labor for life. The case is altogether a most painful one, and it is hardly possible to believe that the conviction will stand. NIICELLANEODR NOTICES.
