The music which should be used, just now, to soothe tbe savage breast, is :he nhia < f a mintiie ball, and the ball should make a hole so that the music can g.t in.—Springfield Republican.

Actingon the pulpit axiom that man is a worm, a despondent resi ent of tloosick Falls last week tried ineffectually to commit suicide by swallowing several dozen vermi fuge lozenges. The Prince of Wales is growing economi cal. He is said to have saved £500 out of his last yearly allowance; though it is whispered that he found the sum in a pair of cast off 1 trousers he had forgotten all about. The largest hailstone which the public has been requested to put confidence in is 6ne “measuring thirteen inches in circumference and four and a half in diameter,” which a Georgia paper reports picked up in Marsbal ville a fortnight ago. There is a good deal in the remark of the Buffalo Express— “It is all very well to talk about the dignity of‘he United States; but the truth is, Indians are a good deal like bumble bees, and the man that stands on bis dignity with a nest of humble bees is a fool.” The Norfolk Journal suggests that Secre tary Kobeson .‘hall engage Sergeant Bates to carry the American le—lag through the Mo doc country, and promises as a reward that the people will ris ■ up an l call the Secretary blessed— “especially if C iptaiu Jack kills and scalps Bates.” - We regret to see that there is a tendency to say “damtily” when “damnably” is intended. How frequently we bear people who are edu cated say “You are damuly mistaken.” These errors in spee h are growing more numerous all the while, and our language is consequent ly losing that purity and tone which are char acteristic of it in the original. A cold, pale ghost is in the habit of visit ing the kitchen of a Detroit house, each night at midnight, and there cooking himself a square meal. He tries to bamboozle the tenants of the property with the story that when he was a man, he was murdered in that very kitchen. “Do you like chickens?’' asked a remarka bly modest Nashville youth of It’s sweetness, as he was walking about two feet from her on his way to churcb, Sunday night. “Cer tainly I do,” she replied; “Why do you ask such a question as that?” “Because! thought if yon liked chickens, you wouldn't object to takin’ a wing, ’ and he crooked his arm in an irresistible maimer. Sweetness took a wing. A posthumous volume of essays from the pen of the ouce fatuous William Godwin has appeared in London. They were written in best years of his long am! laborious life, and contain the matured thoughts of the author of “Political Justice” and a score of other volumes. They deal largely with religious and social questions, and are interesting as the frankly-expressed notions of a remarkable man and a contribution to the history of scepticism. Man’s finest workmanship, tlie closer yon observe it, the more imperfections it. shows; as in a pit-ce of polished steel a microscope will discover a rough surface. Whereas, what may look coarse and rough in Nature's workmanship will show an it.finitely minute perfection the closer you look into it. The reason of the minute superiority cf Nature's work over man’s is, that the form r works troin the innermost germ, while the latter works merely superficially. An Eastern fireman arrived in Detroit the other day with his bride and a big dog. An alarm of fire struck while the loving trio were out for a walk. The man stood it pret ty well while the City Hall bell clanged away, but when the others struck in he began to get out of his boots. He yelled “fire I ’ at the top of his voice, and passing the cord over to the woman he shouted: “Here, Susan, hold the dog and follow on slow. I ve got to run with the masheen I” Here is a saying of Leigh Hunt’s, which we commend to tlnso who have not become demoralized by “false fronts ’ and chignons: “Hair is at once the most delicate and last ing of our materials, and survives us like love. It is so light, so gentle, so escapiug from the idea c* death.that with a lock of hair belonging to a child or friend we may aim st look up to heaven, and compare notes with the angelic nature—may almost say, ‘I have a piece of thee here not uuworthy of thy be ing now.’ ” aiacBLLsifswits noticbs.
