THURSDAYMORNING, APR. 24, 1S7:{ Gossip and Gleanings. Tommy wants to know if the backwoods aren’t the lumbar regions? It is rather cool in a San Francisco paper to advise a young man to “go West.” An Illinois paper announces that Edwin Booth will “trazodiato” in a certain town. An unfortunate calf has been bom in In diana without a tail and is as yet all uncon scious of the horrors of “fly time.” John Weston has contracted with Mr. John C. Merrill to build him a commodious house upon his old homestead the present summer. A ghost at the West is stealing coal, which 1 is thought to be a better sign than if it stole j ice. The announcement that truth is stranger than fiction” is said to depend chiefly upon who tells it. The Christian Leader truly declares “that strikers arc, at the best, clumsy and wasteful methods of redressing grievances.” The soldier makes a pillow of his knap: ack, and the civilian makes a nap-sack of iii* pil low. John C. Merrill hag just finished a good dwelling house on the comer of Smith mid Ox ford streets, for Frank Wildy, who will make this bis liotno. A Louisville newspaper notes the fact that since the Indiaua Sunday Liquor Law went into operation the larger share of the male population of New Albany attend morning service on the Kentucky side of the river. Clinton, Wis., talks Buskin about the pro ductions of a lady artist, the chief merit of which is that she paints them with her eyes blindfolded. To appreciate them properly th® spectator should adopt the same precau tion. A Loudon correspondent of the Woman’s Journal says, “A majority of the Scotch members «f Parliament are in favor of the en franchisement of women, and I believe the same might be said of the Scotch clergy, if they were canvassed upon the subject as the members have been.” Mr. Browning’s poem is in type, and con sists says the Athenaeum, of 4500 lines. It is a poetic version of a great tragedy which came before the law courts of a department in the north of France, last year, and the poet has in the outlines of the story kept close ly to the facts, with the view of present ing to the reader’s mind the key to them in human passion. aangstey says: it you wtsu to be miserable, you must think about yourself; about what you want, what you like, what respect peo ple ought to pay you, what people think of you; and then to you nothing will be pure. You will spoil^ everything you touch; you will make sin and misery for yourseli out of everything God sends you; you will be as wretched as you choose. An enterprising California editor lately electrified the pubi c and lengthened bis sub scription list by announcing a new story by Bret Ilarle, “written especially for this pa per;” the story being, in point of fact, an emanation from the teeming brain of his lit erary reporter. Mr. Ilarte, learning of the affair, wrote on for an explanation, and gets In reply the following dispatch: “All right. Wi publish statement tomorrow, and give name of author.” Experiments made in Italy, to show the ef fect of different colored light upon respiration have resulted in showing that green and yel low rays, which are most important to the vegetable kingdom in taking up carbonic acid are also most favorable to the respiration of animals; that is, to euable them to give off the most carbonic acid. Here is a hint re garding the kind of colors best fitted for wall paper or household ornament. The best piece of news, in the literary way, formanyaday, is the announcement that Mark Twain aud Charles Dudley Warner have written a novel in partnership! It will be pub lished about the end of the summer, and will be octavo in form and profusely illustrated. The book deals w.th the salient features of Dur American life of to-day; and,as might easi ly be divined, is in the nature of a satire. Mrs. Thrifty sent up to my room, before breakfast, a raw egg, to be swallowed in a glass of sherry, as an appetizer and strengtli ener. I doubt, though, if she would have sent me an egg-sling so early in the day, if I had not called her attention to the circum stance that slings were known to and patron ized by one of the godliest men of the old Testament. “No less a pe is on ago Mrs. Thrifty,” I said, “than David was accus tomed to sling, and we read that when a morf* sfpinlintr hn tnnlr a «lintr nrwl ioitrirwli. itely thereafter, as you are aware, he sle w Goliath! the sling, probably, gave him strength to perform this feat,” Mrs. Thrifty, hough puzzled, was not convinced, but said she never considered the passage in that light. “So says Barry Gray.” Secrets of the Dyeing Trade.—Judg ment has been recently given in a suit be tween a firm of dyers in Bradford, Yorkshire, and Paisley, some of the details being as follows, quoted from the North British Mail: It appears that about the year 1856, a class of goods called mohair checks was in great demand for ladies’ dresses, but that the hair or wool of the mohair goat, which constitu ted the weft of the goods at that time. JQfrQ I greatly in price. It became of importance that some substitute should be found which might take the place of mohair weft. A Yorkshire spinner produced a particidarlv hard spun 28 Justrc yard which had all the appearance of mohair, but which owing to curling or snarling in process of dyeing, lost its similarity to it in the finished product. An idea occurred to one of the petitioners that if the yam cloud could be subjected to the hot water while iu a state of tension, and allowed to cool the objection might be reme died. They invented a machine which proved effectual. Mohair checks made with out any mohair continued to please the pub lic, and remained ascheap as before, notwith standing the advanced prices of mohair: The Glasgow manufacturers, it appears, preferred the colors produced at Paisley to those that could be attained at Yorkshire, but the marked freedom of the Yorkshire dyed yams irom cockling and snarling at tracted attention, and caused complaints against Paisley dyers. The retort was that the fault was in the yarn supplied, but in quiry showed that it was not so. Mr. Mac gregor, of Paisley, started for Yorkshire where he discovered the secret, and artanged with the petitioners for the right to use their patent. It was kept a secret in Mr. Mac Gregors work till it became rumored through he trade in Paisley that means had been dis jcvered by which yams were distended in lie hot water. Application was then nado to Mr. Thomas Reed, engineer Paisley, by a Paisley dyer, to invent i machine to effect this purpose, and the re sult was that two machine as inventedibv that gentleman were sold to the respondents, and similar machines were pretty extensively sold n Paisley. Hi* lordship, in his note append ;d to his interlocutor, says it was ti!,L hat the inveutiou of Reed’s machines wal di •ectly traceable to the petitioner WteKd hough made in bona fides hv him . bought he was inventin'*wm/thh,*’ tew, it was piracy from the petitioned q fa vspo^dr4nsUrecei‘iSil0rtl3hip hoWs nachhies or ^! ^ n? to use the ler Tlio PrePjlre the yams in said man put Zj8 resP®pdents had infringed the pa ktoo't. a^e to petitioners in dam iges wmeh he assessed at £150 with ex tenses. j The Rani's Secret or Poetic Reticence [From the Atlanta Weekly.] j Yesterday morning the sub-editor came iu j t > our sanctum and reminded us that we J hadn’t given out any poetry for the fourth i page. So we took out the roll of manuscript ! lift wit 1 us by the Poet's wife, and selected j the following poem, which we read to the suit-editor: KNOWN TO ME ONLY. Mine alono is my secret! I hold it Nor over will te l It; apart From tho woilil and its scoiu I enfold il In the passionate clasp of*my heart; In the thickchanging darkness around it Of hatred and terror and gloom That the world has repaid for inv loving— It hums like a lamp in a tonal'. I shont it to blackshadowed Shasta, To tho sagcbnsh I whisper it low, ^ I write it in rocks of the cauon, And cry it aloud whou thero blow Fierce storm-winds that shake the strong pinstrses. To the stars will I lift up my woe. Tho moon shall grow pale as slio listens; My secret none over shall know! “All that seems to me very improbable’ said the sub-editor gently “but I daresay it relieved his feelings.” At that moment our errand-boy brought in the mail, and we be gin to read our letters. “This is an uncon genial state of things” said wo;“bere is a man who wants to stop bis paper because we re fused to print an article of his, that would have involve.i;us in a libel suit,here’s a bill for ink,and the hill for those types we had last au tumn,and a letter stating that the writcrtliinks our intellectual calibre inconsiderable—this * is’nt pleasant reading.” “Its too bad"said the ' sub-editor, sympathizingly. “We might im itate the poet, and interview the vegetable * world on the subject of our grief,” said we. “or we might go round to the reptile contem porary's office and talk it over with him, or go down to the corner of the street, and but tonhole one of the lobsters in that cart—but on the whole we decline to write up our woes ‘oil rocks of the canon’—like other Hitters.’’ The sub-editor took out the box of brief quo tations and selected some of them for our column of items; while we wrote hastily on a manuscript slip, which we unceremonious ly slid across the table to him. He picked it up, and read the following lines, inspired by our despair. NO ADMITTANCE EXCEPT ON BUSINESS We remarked on oar griefs to the stpiash-vine. To a toad wo confided our woe, Wo chalked it all out on a shingle, And shouted its cause to a crew; None knew it—except those we mention From the cold world wo held it aloof; Of course the compositor knows it, And tho man that corrected the proof; For wc had it run in, in the Weekly, • It was printed in ‘‘proof’ and “revise”— . The Weekly has many subscribers— Bat we couldn’t help feeling surprise That any one fonnd out our secret; And we add a last word to the wise— If you don’t want tldugs known by t he pub’ic, The moral is—don’t advertise! The sub-editor looked at us with much respect aud remarked enthusiastically,” T ou always keep au eye to business, even though the other eye be fixed on the glittering peak of Parnassus.” We modestly declined the compliment, as the obvious de duction would be that we were afflicted with an unpleasant obliquity of vision,which is not the case. The sub-editor carefully smoother, out the Poet’s manuscript, laid it beside ours, and compared them carefully with a puzzled expression on his face. “I don’t see but yours is as sensible as his—but it doesn’t sound so” said he, at length. “It is exactly as sensi ble”, replied we; “if we wanted to talk, one thing is as good as another, a squash-vine is as good a conversationalist as Mount Shasta.” Still, the sub-editor wasn’t, quite satisfied—the fact is, he is young yet, and hasn't learned that the universe doesn't often take the trouble to combine to crush an aspiring and deserving genius. A IIastt WlDDUto.—The Springfield (Mass.) Republican says: “There is.always a charm about weddings—the blissful exincta tions, the little anxieties, and the flutter of preparation interest the prosaic and gild hours to look back upon through life. It is perhaps true, also, that the delights of courtship in tensify as its duration shortens. Wo infer that these things are so, from the circum stances of a union which tool: place in tills city, a day or two ago. At the depot, just be fore train time, numerous hackmen stood chaffing and laughing when a policeman sud denly tapped one’s shoulder and invited him to a brief ‘constitutional.’ Now, it is well known that hackmen never think anything of little sacrifices for others, hence this one fol lowed the overseer of ordinances to the steps of the Mas«assoit House, whero a beautiful girl, whom it would be utterly impossible to describe, stood pctisitely regarding a shallow pool mirror in, the lace of heaven—in short a mud-puddle. ‘Ho you know this lady?' asked the officer, in whose bosom the pangs of match-making already bestirred themselves. The young mar. seemed deeply moved,his lace alternately flushed aud paled with an intensity of delight, and so great was his joy that he would have rushed away to hide his feeliugs, had not the presence of the man in uniform restrained him. The by-standers reverently took otr their hats, and at length the fair one spoke: ‘Well, 1 ve come.’ ‘Will you uiairy her or go to jail?’ added the policeman, and the swain, looking down the vista of years, aud, by faith, seeing his grandchildren prais ing him. responded tremulously “I s’pose I've got to.’ Over the remaining scenes we draw a veil, only waiting to see the city clerk smile politely as he pockets the wedding fee, and the youth, teariug himselt from his bride of an hour, going back to thefbcggarly elements ot back-drivitia out of—the 11PW Wnrlrl info tueold. A “little leaenino” is said to be a dan gerous thing. An incident is at hand to show that great learning is not without its calamitous consequences. A Camden lady grew tired of her husband. She didn’t want to poison him—that was too common, and yet she yearned to have him gathered to his ancestors. One day this paragraph came un der her observation: .. A;;assiz says that any full-grown man can live for ten days by chewing a pair of boots. Her husband was a “full-grown man, ’ and she resolved to try an experiment. She loek 11 p*' trniTut. amt served !iim up an oipftjettorealeulated than either calf ©ncow hide to prolong life, and yet the ungrateful brute died in. just four days and seventeen hours. Clearly Agassiz is almost as respon sible for this man’s life, as if lie had taken it himself.—Commercial Adxertieer. tllSCEIAANEVia NOTICES. Children cry—for Pitcher’s Castoria.

A remedy has now come to them, and the wonder is tha t it has not been discovered before. The Centaur Liniment is as delicate and soothing as a cos metic, and affords such speedy and i>ennanent relief, that we are showered down with tliauks. It is simply a wouderfnl thing for all sores lameness and swdlings.
