Joaquin Miller's new volume of poems is dedicated “to the Rosottis.” X^St; Louis physicians arc styled “Mo. cat fight aT'VyievT^? 10 th° *peetacle of * *ew °* fur-in-parts.” The insinuation that Fv<. issue at the creation, is a rib’Lw ^ * S‘Je Peoria, III, wishes to be made a signal station, guaranteeing to furnish the most as tounding weather on the continent. May two people be sail to be halfwitted when they hare an understanding between them? Torturing rats is expensive amusement in Lancaster, Penn. The courts charge $10 per rat. Delavan, III., is waiting to go mad, baring found out that it bad eateu bogs which bad been bitten by mad dogs. It is thought that Victor Hugo’s fo-tbcom ing poem, “Satan,’’ will be a devilish good thing. The mortuary records of Kansas show that horse-stealing is one of the most unhealthy occupations in the State. Parasols with long, heavy silk fringe, and hiving knobs and handles of pure gold, are all the rage among New York fashionables just now. i A Washington doctor asserts that “bald headed men die young." He probably con founds cause and effect, and means that those who dye young are apt to become bald. The Boston Post says that Mrs. Sherman is allowed to take care of the plants In Ibe Connecticut State Prison and that she poi sons the bugs beautifully. A Troy woman says that If death really loves a shining mark, it is singular that he has not aimed at her husband's nose before this. A medical writer says the healthiest posi tion to lay in is with toe head to the North People who own hens should bear this fact in mind. The favorite boutonniere with society men is a single pansy, emblematic, no doubt, of the shrinking modesty so characteristic of that class of the community. Donald McKay thinks 'oston Charley was killed in the last fight. Probably there is no man in the country whose thinking appara tus needs repairing so badly as Donald Mc Kay’s. The well-known artist, George CruikshaDk, is thus referred to in t German biographical dictionary: “A famous caricaturist and ar tist in London, whose real name is Simon Pure.” The young married man who found him self at the theatre, the other evening, with feet encased iu st -el-colored hoots, from a liberal applica ion of stove-blacking in the dark, wants to know “how tong tiiii house cleaning business is going to last, anyway.” The Tooth of Chief Justice Chase. Mrs. Stowe, in a pleasant sketch of Mr. Chase, contained in her book entitled “Men of Our Times,'1 pub’ished a few years ago, says that he received his name, Salmon Port land, from an uncle Salmon Chase, a disting uished lawyer of Po tland, who die ■ sudden ly while pleading in court. She also gives the following incidents ol Mr. Chase’s early years: “In regard to Chase’s early education, re have not many traditions. lis parents were of the best class of New Hampshire families; Bible-reading, thoughtful, shrewd, closely and wisely economical. It is said that iu that re gion literary material was so scaice that the boy’s first writing lessons were takeu on strips ot birch ark. When bis father die!, there was found to be little property tttr the support of the family, and only the small sepa rate estates of his mother was left. She was of Scotch blood--that blood which is at once shrewd, pious, courageous ant energetic, and was competent to make a little serve the u is ol a great deal. Bu* an education,and a college education, is the goal toward which such mo.hers in New England set their faces as a flint—and by infinite sayings and unknown economies they compass it. Wht n Chase was fourteen years old, his uncle, the bishop of Ohio and Illinois offered to take; and edu cate him, and be went to Ohio along with an elder brother who wts attached to Geu. Cass’s expedition to the upper waters ot the Mississippi. While al Buffalo, the seniors of the party made an excursion to Niaga ra, but bad no room in their vehicle for the boy. Young Chase upon this, with characteristic energy, picked up another boy who wanted to see the falls, and the two enterprising young gentJemen footed it through the snow lor tweuty miles, and saw the falls in company with their elders. He temained two years with the bishop, who was a peremptory man, and used bis nephew as be did bimselt and eve ybudy else about biro; that is, made bint work as hard as be could. The great missionary bishop bad so much to do, and so little to do it with, that he had to make up tor lack pf money by incessant and severe labor, and with such help as he could get. H.s nephew being his own flesh and blood, he Ht pet haps at liberty to drive a little more sharply than the rest, as that is the form in which the lamily instinct shows itself in people of bis character The youth was near sighted, atd troubled with an obstinate lisp. The former disability was incurable, but the latter he overcame by means of a long and persevering course of reading aloud. On the whole the bishop seems to have thought well of his nephew, tor one day n refusing him leave to go iu swimming, he did so with the Compli mentary exclamation: ‘Why, Salmon, the country mlgLt lose its tuture president, w re I to let you get drowned.’ Af.tr being fitted under his uncle, Chase entered Dartmouth college. One anecdote ot Chase’s college life is characteri9 ic as showing that .'courageous and steady sense of justice which formed a lead'ng feature ot bis after life One ot bis classmates was sentenced by the faculty to be expelled from college on a .'barge of which Chase knew him to be wholly innocent. Chase, alter in vain agning the case with the president, finally told him that he would go too, as he would Dot stay in an institution where bis Irieod* weie treated with such □justice. The two youtbs racked up their goods and drove ofT. But the faculty scut word to them almost before they had got out ot the village, that the senteuce was rescind ed aud they might come back. They said, however, that they must take time to consid er whether they would do so, and they took a week, haviug a plea-ant vacation', alter which they returned. It will be seen Irom the following that Mr. Cha«e, like some oth er distinguished lawyers, did not burst upon his profession with any extraordinary brill iancy: “His early days of legal practice were days of waiting and poverty. The only pro ressior al work he did for a considerable time was to draw an agreement tor a man, who paid hint half • dollar, aud a week alteiwaid came and borrowed li back. Mr. Chase’s first argument beloit a United States court was at Coiumbus, O., in 1834. Tbe case was to him a ve y imp-ntant one, and when he arose to make his argument be found bimselt so agitated that he could not utter a woid He had theielore to sit down, and after a few mo ments tried >gj;iD’"‘^fjudgel esme to he was through, one or tue js . him, congratulate y disagreeable, inquired Tub congratulated lor? “on you? failure.” answered the judge, who added: “A person of ordinary temperament and abilities would have gone through bla part wi'bout any such symptoms ot nervous ness. But when 1 see a man break down once or twice in that way, I conceive the highest hopes for him.”
