Lake Champlain th:catena to siilnncrve all the real plains in its jicinity. The mania for house-moving at this season has been well characterized by a satirical vic tim of it as “ ’motional insanity.” The u e of fasting, in a religious sense, probably lies in this, that it gives one a realiz ing sense of tlie “emptiness of things below.” Whether tobacco is injurious or not has been definitely settled in Ilartford, where a hogshead of it rolled from a dray and broke a teamster’s leg. A little fellow who had just commenced reading the papers, asked his father if the word “Hon.” prefixed to the name of Mr. P-, a member of Congress, meant “hon est.” It b not “the thing” now to wear the brid al veil over the face at all. It is twisted about the head in a manner strongly suggestive of a burlesque actress about to have her photo graph taken. It begins to look as if the immense “circus tent” suu umbrellas of two years ago were go ing to be fashionable again. They are much more useful and iar prettier than the r!ub handles. A live rattlesnake was found last week in the aqueduct at Rochester, and several citi zens now understand that certain optical de lusions were caused by mixing water with their whiskey. The sudden death of a citizen of Siawson, on Tuesday, made a deep impression upon one of his neighbors. The day he was buried was the day he was going to show this neigh bor a good spot for sassafras.

Owing to Mr. Curtis’ severe illness, the Easy Chair of the coming number of liar per';: Monthly will be filled by Dr. Samuel Os good. “The Diary of Louis XVI.,” the MS. oi which was recently discovered in the Nation al Library, has just been published in Paris. A new Berlin edition of the “Imitatio Christi,” with fac-similes, is expected to es tablish finally the authorship of Tho nas a Kempis. Mr. Story, the sculptor in Rome, has writ ten a comedy which was recently performed by amateurs at a private eutertainment in that city gotten up by Americans. It is stated that Max Muller, Froude, and Charles Kinsley are all brothers-in-law, hav ing mariied the three daughters of a rich London merchant. Mr. Michael Reese, a citizen of San Fraur cisco, furnished the necessary §2,000 to pur chase the library of the late Dr. Liebor, for presentation to the University of California. A Conversation Club has been founded in London by Mill, Fawcett, M. D. Comvav, Dr. Appleton, Major Evans Bell, Mn Sidney i Colvin, and others. Dr. T. W. Parsons’ translation of the “Purgatorio” will be published in the fall. Is it likely to be better than Longfellow's? though it is scarcely to be expected that a life-long student of Dante should make no use of bis results because another poet has the start of him in publishing. Virot, the celebrated Paris miliner, has sent the ex-Em press Eugenie one of her new fashioned spring bonnets heavily trimmed with crape.

C. Stedman of Walter Savage Landor. The Insanity of Cain. The following arc the closing paragraphs of a remarkable article iu Scrib: er’s for May, on “The Insanity of Cain:” In judging of Cain, look at the situatiou. On the oue hand, a terrible family mystery, no schools, no churches, no lectures, no so ciety, no amusements, no apples! On the other hand, the whole burden of humanity borne for the first time; paternal discipline; undue phrenological developments; mono tonous employment; antediluvian monsters; antediluvian parents, and an antediluvian good brother in whose mouth butter would have remained intact for ages. Undoubtedly that brother had an exasper ating smile. He was happy because he was virtuous. He had a way of forgiving and forgetting that for a time would deprive the offender ot reason itself; above all, he bad a cool, collected manner of his owr, added to a chronic desire to be an angel. His offerings always fulfilled the conditions. His fires needed only to be lighted, and the smoke was sure to ascend with a satisfied, confident curl far into the sky. Cain’s, on the contrary, refused to burn. Wc cau see it all. Tbe smoke struggled and flopped. It crept along the ground, and clinging to his feet, wound about him like a serpent. It grew b.'ack and angry, shot side ways into his eyes, blinding and strangling him— And there stood Abel beside his pile, radi ant, satisfied, wanting to be an angel! It was but the work of a moment. The pent-up, disorganizing influences of a life time found vent in one wild moment of emo tional insanity. Abel was no more! Why dwell upon the tragedy ? The world is familiar with its sickening details. We shall not repeat them here, no>- shall we question the justice of the punishment that came to Cam,-the remorse, the desolation, the sense of being a fugitive and a vagabond on tbe md thVno enth IIe had killed his brother, and the penalty raust .be paid. Sane or in sane, a teirible retribution must have overta ken him. But how about his guilt? Would it have been the same in either case? Are hereditary organism, temperamental excita bility, emotional phrensy not to be consider ed? No, a thousand times NO 1 Wliat “com petent juror” would acquiesce in such a pron osition! K Friends, the time lias come w hen this case must be taken up. Its mighty issues can no longer be set aside. It Cam was not sane at the moment oi the killing, the stain of mur det must be wiped from his brow now and forever. Ibis tardy justice may at least be done him. Our children and our children’s children must lie taught to speak of Cain the mandaughtcrer; Cain the mcntallv-excitable: Lam the pcculiarly-circumstancedl ButCain the murderer? Never! ?-own testimony shall not convict ot acquit lmn. But are wo not to take into account, as indicative of hi; state of mind actions and declarations coincident with the emuim si m of the crime alleged against him ? It at oi about the time ot the fatal deed there was positive evidence of incoherence— what then ? Witness the last recorded words of Cain : Every one that findeth me shall slay me! . Is this the utterance of a sane mind? Every one that findeth me shall slay me? Gentlemen! Cain, at this point, was not on ly crazy—he was the craziest man that ever existed! No ordinary lunatic, however pre post .tous his terrors, expects to be killed moie than once But to this poor creature, retribution suddenly assumed a bydra-bcad ed form. His distract, d brain, unconscious that Adam was the only o*ber man in the wide world, instantly created an immense population, lie saw himself falling again and again by the strokes of successful assassins, even as Abel had fallen under bis hand. His first dazed glimpse oi death expanded and in tensified into a horror never since conceived by mind of man. His happiness overthrown; his reason a wieck: a prey to fears that stretched before him forever, with no possi ble hope of final destruction,—the only con solation is that he could not forokuow the merciless verdict oi posterity. He lid not recognize in himself The'First Murderer. Ilather than dream of such ignominy as this, was it not belter that lie should cry in his ravings: Every one that findeth me shall slay me! We leave the question to the Intelligence and the justice oi this faithful and enlighten ed century. Brother Newton.—When Newman Hall was in Philadelphia in 1870 he lectured the sliort time lie speu- tbere constantly, some times on Sundays preaching four or five times. Your correspondent, with a party, started to bear him at an evening service. He was announced at six at a church tar up town, ami lor eight o’clock at St. Thomas’s. Though we none of us knew the church by name, its location and the hour were so con venient, we decided upon hearing him there. Arriving an hour before the lime, in the hope of thus securing seats, we found St. Thomas’s to be a colored people’s church, and the ser vices fully under way—having their own ser vices beforehand, we discovered upon getting in. . We were received at the door by ushers in dress-coats and white ties and gloves, and taken to seats in tlie galleries, the rest of the church being already packed, aisles and all, with a mixture of wbit‘ and black folks. A moment after we were seated, as a pray er was ended, “Brother Newton” was an nounced—and it is to record some of his pun gent utterances this is being written. Among other things, lie said: “We are going to beg to-night, while we vo got a lot of you of both ctilors here, for some kinds of mixtures is good and wholesome. We’re a-begging in the int'rests of the church. What inf rests, do you say? Why, the int’ rests of keeping of it good and warm and light; goodier than that, comfortable for all of ye to ctmic into and worship the Almighty. We want to raise the money for the fire and the lights. What, do you say we oughtn’t because the Bible says salvation’s free? So it is, so it is! Who’s' agoing to say it idn’t? Salvation’s free, thank the Lord!” (Then there was a responsive shout all over the church—“Thank the Lord! Yes, yes!” "Amen!”) “So's water free,thank’he Lord so’s water free; but ye have to pay for the pipes and the buckets what ye get it in. don’t ye? Yah! now don't ye?' Never circum stanced that, I suppose?'’ Constantly through his remarks there would be a surge like a wave, the effect of which was very singular, beginning with the leaders around the pulpit, and spreading as quick as thought over the church—“Amen,” “Thank the 'Lord,” “Yes, yes, bress His name.” When he said something comical, as he constantly did—little unrepeatable things— . there would a low gurgle of laughter go through the audience, when, quick as a flash, lie would turn upon them sternly: -Laughin', are ye ? Better weep, the lot of ye—a-laugbin’ in the house of the Lord, sins and all! sins and all!” He gave an account of having the week be fore attended a convention in New Haven. “And I went regular, and the fuss they made over me was great. It was Brudder Newton here, and Brudder Newton there, and Brudder Newton every where;and I began to believe I was a great man, you may bet. But wIkmi that convention was broke, I met them members in tlie street, and they cut me dead. So I concluded it was brudder in the meeting amt nigger on the street.” Some one behind him pulled his coat, and whispered something: then he announced: “The brud iers tell me 1 must stop my talk, cause they mean to tune up in the ‘chor.’ All right. I cau sing, though; and if ye pay me twenty-five cents a yard for the good cause of a liglitin' aud a-war in in’ this burdened church I’ll measuic ye as many yards as ye choose. But now while ye listen to the ‘chor’ perform, ye will come for'aid to the altar and deposit yer money. And as the people in the galler ies can't get down because of the crowd on the stairs, the bredren will pass the baskets round to the reserved ‘corpses' up there. And you amen sisters down 'yer, you’ye been a shouting and a-groaniug; let's see if you know as well about giving.” Then the "‘Black Swan,” who, was in the “chor,” sang divinely, and Mr. Hall, having arrived, “spoke his little piece.”—Kditor b Drawer, in Harpers Mayazinefor May. Moths in Im-niture. There are two species of moths which in fest furniture. One is a large liy of silvery white color; tho worm of the same is shaped like a chestnut worm, and is familiarly known. It rarely infests furniture. The other is a small lly ol a dark drab color; the worm is about one-fourth of an inch long, and taper ing from the head to the tall. It was observ ed" by upholsterers about thirteen years ago. This fly p netrates a sofa or chair, generally b'tween the hack and seats of sofas, or under tho seats, where the vacancy among the springs affords a sate retreat. It may make a lodgment one week after the turniturc is placed in the house. If such should be the case, in two mouths the wotm will appear; and the continual process of procreation in a few mouths incicases the number to thou sands. This moth has no season. It destroys in winter au i summer alike, as it is kept in active life by the the constant heat of the house. We find at the same time in the same piece of furniture, the fly, the worm, and the eggs—thus showing that they are breeding and destroyiug a’l the time. It does lioteat good pure curled hair, hut fastens its cocoon to it, the elasticity ot which pre vents it from being disturbed. The inside of furniture is toed by it only for purposes of propagation. The worm when rendy for food, crawls out and destroys the covering, if of woolen or plush material, and falling to the cat pet de stroys it. They rarely cut through plush from the inside, is it is of cottou hack, hut there are instances where they have cut up muslin on the outside backs ot sofas. There is no protection against it hut continual care. New furniture should be removed from the walls at least twice a wees at this season of the year, and should be well whisked all rouud, and particularly under the seats, to prevent the lly from lodging. This is an ef fectual preventive, and the only one known. Cayenne pepper, Scotch snutf, camphor, tur pentine, and all other remedies for protection freui the large moth are of lutle or no avail against the furniture moth. Saturation with alcohol will not destroy them when in a piece of furniture. If the furniture is infested they may he removed by taking off the mus lin from under the seals and off the outside ends and backs, where they congregate most and expose it to the air as much as possible! licat well with a whisk or the open baud, and kill all the flies and worms which show themselves. This done often will disturb them, and may make them leave the furni ture, as its desire Is to be left quiet. When the furniture is free from moths and is to he leit during the summer months without at tention, it may be protected by camphor in small bags or highly coneentiatcd patchouli. The safest way is.to have the furniture whisk ed twice a week! .. , .. ... If the moth attacks the carpet, which they wili first do under the sofas and chairs, spread a we- sheet on the carpet and pa--« a “ot aat iron over it quickly-tbe steam ly destroy both moths, the is delivered in a dwejh"o free » and ail m" t0Theretaro /ase "/.here the furniture has fejen in use ten or twelve years before being attacked. It would be as fair toho.dthe tailor responsible for the safety ofclotbing at to hold the upholsterer responsible for the « of furniture.
