A Philadelphia woman broke down four before she could haeg herself Algernon Glydon Griswold carries bricks up a ladder in Chicago all day, and when the peaceful evening shadows fall he goes home and beats his wife. A Cleveland child ran away the other day, and one of the local papers says that the “cause of her disaffection is not known.” Disaffection is an expressive word. A Florida Alderman told his vote for au oriode chain and a circus ticket, and his friends are naturally ashamed and indignant. They i.now that he might have obtained a jack-knife by simply asking for it. A religion of the bare intelligence makes everything disputable; of the feelings, every thing vague ;_of the conscience, everything rigid. Intelligence in religion gives form to feeliug, feeling gives warmth to conscience, and conscience gives a firm basis to both.— Kerr. Ex-Secretary Boutwell has some mysteri ous grudge against the City of Chattanooga. He declares that it is “destined to become the Pittsburg of the Southwest.” It is rarely that a man surrounded by such powerful moral influences, attains such a refinement of sptte. A fellow walking through a church-yard, stumbled upon the inscription: “I am not dead but sleeping.” Disgusted at what he deemed a manifest attempt to impose upon travelers, be exclaimed: “Well, ifl was dead, by thunder I’d own it I” This is the season for brass bands to puff themselves up with the idea that people have to keep awake all night to fight bugs and mosquitos, and that it is pleasanter to per form such duties to the accompaniment of war-like airs and funeral marches.

In the midst of the gloomy feelings that equally possess the inhabitants of town and country, when Winter slops over tco outrage ously In the lap of Spring, It is some comfort to hear that one of those ssemingly Invinci ble prize-package fitnds has just been killed on a Western railroad. It is recorded of that suffering saint. D. Pratt, Esq., that once while addressing a small but enthusiastic crowd in a close room filled with tobacco smoke, the old man stop ped for a moment from contemplating “The specialty of all specialities,” and In his own characteristic way remarked, “Gentlemen, your speaker ain’t a ham.” It is now definitely settled that the theat rical and amusement managers generally, to gether with the “stars” and leading members of the profession, are to assemble in New York, in July next, in convention, to take action in relation to obtaining special rates and better facilities on the principal railroads. It is proposed to form themselves into a co operative society, elect officers, and meet each July in New York city, in furtherance of their interests. Corporal chastisement is sometimes good for a school boy, and if he can be induced to take it without a fuss so much the better. There arc various ways of bringing this about. A school ma'am in Haverhill, Mass., finding a boy one more than she could handle persuaded him to take a deserved flogging without resistance by' arranging that he should have his choice from a litter of bran new puppies. That teacher is a woman of expedients, and will get along with the school if the supply of puppies holds out. “Georgey, boy,” said the grandfather to the future father of his country, “Benjy Franklin-i father is a soap boiler, and he is goiug to grow up aud call down fire from heaven. Yonrs is not, yet you are not whol ly uninstructed, my son, in the science of chemistry. Tell me, thea, since I have now leached these cherry-wood ashes tor mors than a week, is the liquid ready tor the addi tion of soap grease” ? The hero of Mon mouth, Trenton and such, let up for a space upon the stick he was whittling to reply, with all the ingenuonsness of childish igno rance, “Father, I cannot tell a lye.” After that he passed into history. The Winged Han. FAGLIN, THE BIRD-MAN OF AtTVERW*.—A SINGULAR STORY. Paris has a Revue des Merveilles Scienti fiques, and, if all its articles are as startling as a recent contribution from the pen of Jf. Harnois Condamine, it certainly has good claims to the title, This gentleman has dis covered actual evidence of a new departure among the human race by which man is eventually to take to himself wings and fly through the air. The application of faith |in the Darwinian theory of the selection of spe cies to the phenomenon that Mr. Harnois Condamine describes is all that is necessary to forecast an ostrich-iike creature as the the coming man, half striding, halt flying through the world. The addition of wings to women will, of course, make them aDgels in stead of ostriches. It was iu the mountains of Auverne that the embodiment of the first evidence of the new departure was discovered. His name was Andre Faglin. He was an athlete, a famous swimmer and a great s. alker. He ap peared to walk as much with his arms as with his legs. The motion of the arms In creased as he ran until, as be is described, “he seemed to be actually propelliLg himself through the air like a swimmer who goes through the water hand over hand.” He insisted that this increased his speed. When Andre died M. Harnois Condamine, assisted by M. Bravais, a physician of the conservv tive school, dissected his body. Abnormal developments were found, which, taken sep arately, might be regarded as deformities but, together, pointed directly to a new type —thefbird type. The arm was certainly the beginning of the frame work of a wing, ac cording to these gentlemen. The formation of the breast, the lengthening of the shoulder blade, the inclosure of the thorax and various other developments indicated the same ulti mate condition of a human being with wings. At his death Faglin left a child, about a year o'.d, that shows the same development# in a more pronounced degree, with two ad ditional features ot the bird typfe. On* of these is a very distinctly marked, though ru dimentary third eyelid; the other to *JoaM and flappy mass of skin that folds bet* of the arm when this member Is at rest.
