A seafaring saint in Ohio, whose son had in some way occasioned him grief, used to say, “Ah! children, when they are little, tread on our knec3; but when they are old, they tread on our hearts.” A reverend orthodoctrinaire in Beatrice, Neb., proclaims his unqualified disapproval of a public library which contain* works by Herbeit Spencer, Darwin, Tyndall, and Hux I ley.

All through the life of a pure-minded, bnt feeble-bodied man, his path is lined with j memory s grave-stones, which mark the spots where noble enterprises perished for lack of physical vigor to embody them in ; deeds.—Horace Mann. — Sir John Lubbock believes that “La Belle j Ilelcne,” of Troy, is mal'gncdby popular tra I dition. His present Eastern journeying and j the study of Homer have vivified his chlval : rousness, and he is now trying to convert the j Royal Society of Antiquaries to his belief.

The New York Commercial thinks that the proposal to compel all hotels to supply their upper stories with rope ladders is nothing but a device of Satan. What a provocation to the lofty hut curiou3 spirit of some unquiet American, to set the building on 'fire, just to see liow the derned things would work. Is a signboard a vested right? This ques tion is now before a Chicago court. There are in that city two hotels named the Brigcs House; and each wants the other compelled to get married, or resort to some other device for having its name changed. The judge has th? matter under advisement. Why is it that young ladies seldom object to their beaux smoking; very often remarking that they enjoy so much the flavor of a good cigar, but do object when their brothers do the smoking? This is an idle question, hut one which is calculated to furnish food for reflection. The Nashville women, a little while ago, announced an intent'pn of being economical aud wearing calico to church. At last ac counts they had only succeeded in making a dress cost $19.50, but they are now going to trim them with Valenciennes, and do not de spair. Sir Henry Bulwer ouce asked a French hoy seven years of age, what profession ho intended to follow when he grew up. “I will be a doctor,” said he. “And what will you be, my little man ?’’said Bulwer to the lad’s elder brother, nine years old. “I will be the cure,” said he, adding, “My brothor will kill the peoplo, and I will bury them; and be tween us we will have, the village.” The Saturday Kevicw 3ays, “It is a familiar trick of a certain school of poets to represent the landscape as sympathetically responding to the feelings of the person who is gazing on It. If you are merry, then all nature is gay and frisky, too; the sky smiles, aud the tree* nod with quite a waggish air. If you are sad, the scenes mourns with you, the foliage droops, and the very sunshine is pathetic.” Many persons, besides schoolboys and col lege students, use the phrase “He Is a brick,” without the least idea that it is supposed to be of classic origin. It is said that King Agesilaus, being asked by an ambassador from Epirus wby they ha 1 uo walls for Spar ta, replied, “We have.” Pointing to his marshalled army, hff said, “There are the walls of Sparta; every man you see U a brick.*’ The learned and ingenious Max Muller has recorded that “no language can be inflection al without having first passed through the the agglutinative and isolating stratum.” Wc had always been of the same opinion our selves until wc came to 6tudy Arabic, or, as it is vulgarly called, Gnm-Arabic. When this language was passed through the “ag glutinative and isolating stratum,” it stuck fast, and nobody to our kuowedge has ever been able to thaw it out. Mr. A. Bronson Alcott, having returned from a talking tonr in the West, says that for conversation he prefers a Western company before an Extern. There appears a disposi tion to deal with things at first hand, a cer tain robust handling, rough, perhaps, but ready and respectful, that more than com pensates for the daintier and more decorous book-training common to Eastern people. And yet the West liughs at Mr. Alcott’s ec centricities. Goethe and Lessing.—Goethe’s poetic sense was the minotaur to which he sacri ficed everything. To make a study, he would soil the maiden petals of a woman’s soul; to get the delicious sensation of a reflex sorrow, lie would wring a heart. All that saves his egotism from beiug hateful is, that, with its immense reaches, it cheats the sense into a feeling of something like sublimity. A patch rf sand is unpleasing; a desert has all the awe of the ocean. Lessing also felt the duty of sell-culture; but it was not so much for the sake of feed ng fat this or that faculty as of strengthening character,—the only soil in w hich real mental power rati root itself ard find sustenance. His advice tohis broth er Karl, who was beginning to write for the stage, is two parts moral to one literary. “Study ethics diligently, learn’to express yourself well and coricctly. and cultivate your owu character; without that I cannot con ceivo a good dramatx author.” Marvelous counsel this will stem to those who think that wisdom is only to he found in the fool’s para dise of Bohemia!—Lowell. The Season.—Signs of Spring are multi plying in the city. Old Winter apples polish ed up with old handkerchiefs and cast-off un d*r-c!othes, are appearing at the fruit-stands, bananas, ready to be cut from the stem Dy the toba.co-stained jack-knife of ' ’ swing in the breeze; and P>fden oraosfij» brought up to full color by J* R f hjg between the have the^etirriug pantaloons, • ,,d|es 0f the curb, who £avcnsbirered on pleasant Winter day. the pist season over their roast-chestnut s ands, are already looking up their second-hanu uaur brushesfor the peach season.
