A BRIEF and comprehensive view of the Govern ment of the United States and of the State Gov ernments, by J. B. Shurtleff. Third Revised Edition by David N. Camp. This volume commonds itself on account of its comprehensiveness while it treats each topic briefly and clearly; the value of such instruction can scarce ly be overestimated. It gives a sketch of the historv and condition of the Colonies, tho occasion of the Dholaration of Independence, and of the adoption o the Constitution; examines carefully the pywers, leg islative, executive and judicial, belonging to the gov ernment;-describes the various departments with thefc functions, the relation of the States to each oth er and to the general government; the qualifications, duties and powers of officers, home ana foreign. In short, we have in a small, well-arranged volume, all that is essential in order to understand the nature and working of our repulican institutions. While important for the citizen, it is well adapted for tho higher classes in schools, and is used by tho New York Board of Education and elsewhere.

Color d linen is coming in vogue again among young ladies for collars and cuffs. According to a Cretan correspondent of the Decant Times,xu antique statue of Venus had been found near the village of Inis. The season is approaching when drinking men, as well as drowning men, will catch at straws.—New York Graphic. A man in the St. Louis Custom House was lately frighteued at night by a voice claiming to be Lafayette's father. Lafayette proved to he one of the messengers. It is pleasing to know that the most of the muskrats that built slight houses last fall, thereby luring tho weatberwiso to go “short” on coal, are being found frozen to death. A correspondent wishes to be informed if astronomers have foretold the transit of Ve nus by guess-work. Not at all; they node it in the mo3t positive manner. The word “city” has a totally different meaning in the Old World than in the New. In England it moans a place that is or has been the see of a bishop. Liverpool, tha largest seaport of England, is not a city. Oregon is putting on airs about the Puget Sound clams, that weigh from one pound to two pounds apiece. Who wants clams as big as that, anyway ? The idea of saying “We had a clam for breakfast!” Oar reporter in passing through Nelson street, Monday,was surprised to see a middle aged man dart out ol a door way and a woman soon appear with a broom, and shrilly ex claims “Don't you come back to this house till you get your life insured, vou speckled jackass.”—Danbury Newt. A North Blrffcat sits upou its hind squat ters and harks like a dog. The family wouldn’t take 83,000 for that cat, though the neighbors, who are supposed to be in a con spiracy to “Bear” the market, have signified their willingness to part with it for 81.16.— Peoria Gazette. There is a great mania for sculpture just .now among ladies who have nothing else to attend to. It naturally strikes one that the wo man we so oiton hear about,but seldom see— she who is a model for her sex—would be use ful under the circumstances. ■ » We met Miss Kitty-at a ball recently. After talking about the balloon ascension, the weather, and other things, we asked rather abruptly, “Where is your mother?” “Oh,” said the sweet damsel, “I have left her at home. I generally do when I come to a ball.” What is home without a mother? There is in this city an old Englishman who reads all the plays of Shakespeare through every year and takes exactly the year to do it. He has done so for thirl; -seven years, and lias never been able to find the passage, “Charge, Chester, charge! On, Stanley, on!” which he says,was in a Shakes peare owned by him when a boy, but mu^ have been expunged since. The contaminating effect of «*«ds often lies less in the commission tba* the con sequent adjustment of our desires—the en listment of our self-intent on the side of falsity; as, on the other hand, the purifying influence of public confession springs from the fact that by i‘the hope in lies is forever swept away, a*d the soul recovers the noble attitude ot simplicity. Ilenws another illustration of the dangers attending the use of tobacco. On a train be tween Fautucket aud Taunton, one evening, a brakeman threw a quid of the vile weed at an express agent, aud the latter resented the affront by shooting a baggage master. ThU is a case of the indirect effects of tobacco, to be sure, but so far as the baggage master is concerned there seems to be no doubt that it is highly injurious. □ere is a new story of Charles Dickens: An Oxford undergraduate, with the natural modesty of the race, sent to the editor of Household Words, at the end of the Crimean War, a copy of verses on the return of the Guards, with this note: ‘ Sir: Understanding that you insert rhymes in your serial. I send you some.” To which Dickens answered: “Sir: We don't insert rhymes without rea son.” Why will these scieutfic men frighten us so? They are continually trying to bully us with a cornet, or tha conjunction of half a dozen planets or some other horrid thing that does not give us a ghost of a chance. Now Prof. Winchcll says that the earth is continually cooling and, in doing so, it is ab sorbing water, and in time its thirsty crust will not only drink up the ocean but even the atmosphere, and then the dry and shrivelled old globe will go meandering through space without a living thing on its surface. And the sarcastic professcr calls this kind of talk “rccreations in popular science.”—N. Y Mail. _ Dr. Robert Knox, the great teacher of anat omy, began oue of his lectures in this way: “Gentlemen, there are no text books 1 can recommend. I wrote one myself, but it is poor stuff. I can’t recommend it. The man who knows most about a subject writes worst upon it. If you want a good text book on any subject, recommend me to the man who knows nothing earthly about the subject. The result is that, we have no good text book on anatomy. We will have oue soon, how ever; Professor Monro is guiDg to write one.” This Professor Monro wa3 so lazy that be was in the (habit of using his grandfather’s lec tures, written more than a hundred years be fore his day, and students were electrified by hearing him (in T 29 and 1830) drawl out, ‘‘When I was in Padua in 1604.’* This was the signal for fun, and showers of peas de scended on Monro’s head, who could never understand what it was all about. N ivol Beading. In novels llic most serious questions are beginning to be discussed. What made the popularity of “Jane Eyre'’, but that a cen tral question was answered in some sort? Hie question there answered m regard to a vicious marriage wili always be treated ac cording to the habit of the party. A person of commanding individualism will answer it as Rochester does,—as Cleopatra, as Milton, as George Sand do.—magnifying the excep tion into a rule, dwarfing the world into an exception. A person of less courage, that is, of less constitution, will answer as the hero ine does.—giving away to fate, to convention alism, to the actual state and doings of men and women. For the most part, our novel reading is a passion for results. We admire parks, and bigh-boru beauties, and the homage of draw ing rooms, and parliaments. They make us sceptical, by giving prominence to wealth and social position. I remember when some peering eves of soys discovered that the oranges hanging on the boughs of an orange tree in a gav niazza acre tied to the twigs by thread. I fear’tis so with the novelist's prosperities. Nature has a magic by which she tits the man to bis fortunes, by making them the truit of hi* character. But the novelist plucks this event bere, and that fertuno there, aud ties them rashly to his figures, to tickle the fancy of his readers, with a cloy ing success, or scare them with shocks °t_ tragedy. And so, cu the whole, ’ti* a juggle. We are cheated into laughter or wonder by feats which only oddly combine acts that we do every day. There is no new element, no power, uo (urtberauce. Tis on ly confectionery, not the raising of new co . Great is the po'verty ot their in'rentio*. was beautiful, and he fell \ -j and killing, and grtMM* another—these are the main springs; new names, but no now qualities m .TV men and women. Hence the vain en deavor to keen any hit of this fairy- gold, which has rolled like a brook throilfeh our hands. A thousand thoughts awoke; great rainbows seemed to span the sky—a morning among the mountains;—but we close tne book, and uot a ray remains in the memory of evening.—[R- W. Emerson.
