It is a remarkable fact that, although com mon sheep delight in verdant field*, religious flocks are r.ot anxious for green pastors. The Father of Witers is complained of for keeping his big tows in bis mouth.— Boston Post. The wild man of the woods is in Georgia now; under the favoring Southern sun. he has shot up to the stature of eight feet. The Indiana Democrat makes this confess ion: “If any antiquarian wants the skull of a ‘mound digger’ he can b.i accommodated by calling at this office.” The action of a Swedish woman in Minne sota in attempting to po'son her husband and three children is attributed to “religious fa naticism.” Swedeu-Borgian, probably. This is a Detroit slander: Sines the strin gent temperance law in Massachusetts,barbers use more bay rum than ever. It filters through the scalp. If the average Massachu setts head wasn’t so thick all would be lovely. The nervous diseases fashionable nowadays render apropos the remark of somebody that “sawdust pills would cure half the ills of humanity if every man would make his own sawdust.” When an Oskosh editor runs away with a man's wife, the bereft husband conies around and stops his paper. Some men will with draw their subscriptions for the most trivial reasons. The Saturday Review pronounces “Old Kensington,” which is the longest story Miss Thackeray has written, to be one that gives the highest impression of the richness and power of her genius. George Faulkner of Dublin U3cd to sit a whole night with a solitary strawberry at the bottom of his glass, over which ht used gen erally to pour four bottles of claret, doing it, he would say, “because a doctor recommend ed it for its cooling qualities.” A Kentucky man has evolved out of his “dark and bloody” consciousness a gnu which will discharge three hundred shots in a minute, and they are now at work raising a company of three hundred minute men to man one of them. The Saturday Review thinks that an Eng lish household, as compared with a house hold of the corresponding class in maU con tinental counflies, is a model school in the art of throwing away money for an inade quate return. A London correspondent states that Wilkie Collins feels troubled about the publication, in England and this country, of some ol his earlier works, which he would be only too glad to consign to oblivion. . “The Prelates Puzzled; or What will they di with it?”—Archbishop of Canterbury:— “If I know how to deal with the question, may I be—ahem!—disestablished!”—Arch bishop ot York: If I know what to say in the matter, may I be—ahem ?—disendowed.” —Punch. The Spectator praises Mrs. Grota’s Life of her husband 3s being exceedingly agreeable and entertaming. It says egotism in a clever woman generally has an interest, and Mrs. Grote is both egotistic and clever, and her egotism adds greatly to the interest of the book. The flag which floated over Fort Sumter In 1861 is in the possession of a Stamford man. Please remember this, because other men in other towns ail over the country will be claiming to have that ancient piece of bunting in the next six months. It is well to know where that flag is, though we doubt if it is in a condition for further use. A Baptist paper in Ohio was sent for nine years to a subscriber who never paid a cent for it. The other day the newspaper was re turned to the patient and long-suffering pub lisher with the affecting pencil note on its margin: “Gone to a better world.” The publisher is a very pious man, but it is repor - ed that nis faith is terribly shaken with regard to the accuracy of the information. Schneider very justly remarks that no lit tle sartorial art was required in the Eliza bethan age. “The close-fitting leg-wear ot those days,” he says, “must have caused deep thought and intense anxiety to the Poole of three centuries ago. Shakespeare recognizes this when he puts into the mouth of Ophelia these words: “Pants is for thoughts.” » “A few days ago,” says the Journal do Lyon, “tbo director of the Great Theatre, in view of the speedy opening of that establish ment, wrote to Geneial Bourbaki, offering to decorate for him a front box, which should be henceforth appropriated to the general command. That officer replied, ‘I should willingly accept your kind offer if I had not promised myself not to return to auy theatre until I shall recover possession of the box which I possessed at Metz.’ ” Recent Publications. A Strang* Story; By Balwer, Lord Lyl ton. Another volume of Harpers’ Library Edi tion of Bulwers’ novels. Like other works of the author—it has the wellknown brilliant traits that have given him his high place among eminent novelists; and like them it has also the fatal gift of power without sin cerity ; of genius that fails to move its hear ers because itself remains unmoved, that stands on the brink of the abyss of unknown things and peers curiously down, trusting to its steady brain and coldblooded indifference to keep ik from the danger and terror to which another would fall a prey. Lord Lytton's mind seemed to walk always near forbidden paths; to delight in speculations upon the shadowy borderland between this world and another, safe in the knowledge that selfish ness and skepticism would preserve him from the poison of the upas tree of which he offers us a botanical analysis. The hand that wrote these wild romances is nerveless, the busy brain has ceased its strange work—and we would unwillingly write a harsh word of the dead. But where in Bul wer’s novels is the strong, clear and healthful tone of the Waverly novels, the overflowing humanity of Dickens, or the sympathy and insight of George Eliot. Among the thou sands that mourned for the loss of Charles Dickens, and to whom his name is a house hold word,how many are there who have giv en more thought to Bulwers’ death than a passing temark culled forth by some newspa per notice. The book-reviewer's column is not the place for a homily, but in the inter ests of literature at least, we may say that no power of pen, language clear as crystal, or scope of cultivated intellect can make a writer a living force among the people, with out the manysided sympathy, readily respon sive to every “touch of nature that makes the whole world kin.” “A Strange Story” is too widely and well known to require especial notice of its plot, incidents or characters; and the present edi 1 ion is excellent in all points of mechanical execution.

Tbe au thor lias devoted much attention and thought to the subject ot fires, their causes and the management of them. Having taken for his motto tlie good old proverb that “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound or cure.” Mr. Bird gives many valuable bints as to necessary precautions and the various simple means by which fire may be prevented from spreading. In particular he urges the use of safety elevators in warehouses, as great'y les sening the danger of fire; and without con demning the Mansard roof, warns buiide.s of the inevitable dangers which must result from using such and combustible mate liais in tbeir construction. He strongly ad vises that preparations against fire be made in every building, such as small engine*, buckets, hatchets, etc. The peiusal of this book cannot fail to be useful to every one, and should have a wide circulation.

By JIi»ii Tbnckrrny. aa> • l.orof ‘Tke Villege on Ibe CIHT.” Few novelists have the power of expression, the delicate touch, the exquisite refinement anc depth of feeling, that Miss Thackeray possesses in so great a degree. To read "Old Kensington” is like walking in a sunny old garden, sweet with mingled, undefiuable per fumes of old-fashioned flowers with quaint names, where birds call to each other from the gray boughs of mossy peartrees, and thought is a dream. It is a novel thoroughly human in its interest; and in the delineation of character, Miss Thackeray displays finest instinct and original conception. The story goes on quietly, never, for a page, lacking interest, and when at length we come to the happy ending of the romance, we lay the book down with regret that we must part with people whose story we have followed with so much sympathy. Want of space, and indeed tbe difficulty of selecting passages among so many exquisite bits of word painting—prevent 01 r making extracts from this charming book. Bo we must be content to advise our readers in se lecting volumes for seaside or mountain read mg, in tne approaching summer vacation, by no means to overlook “Old Kensington.” Published by Harper Bros., New York. For sale by Loring, Short and Harmon. A Chance Acquaintance, tv. o. Unwell*. Mr. Howells is undoubtedly oue of the most genuine, genial and elegant of Ameri can writers. His »tyle is always bright, graceful and finished; while his descriptive power and an unfailing fund of refiaed humor form a rare combination. “A Chance Acquaintance” is the story of the adventures of the Ellisons, husband, wife and sister— whom the many readers of Mr. Howell’s previous book,“Their Wedding Journey”,will recognize at once as old friends of whom it is pleasant to see more. While on the way to Quebec, they encounter a Bostonian, Mr. Ar buton—a type of those elevated and disagree able tr—its which equally are the pride ot some of the jcunease doree of the modem Athens.Ot course with acharmiug naiee and warui-heart ed heroine like Kitty Ellison, even the disad vantage of such an uncompromising hero could uot prevent the author from building a ro mance from his materials. To those readers who may be a little disap pointed at the rather abrupt ter termination of the rtory—we would suggest, as a word of comfort, that we are sure Mr. Howells will not leave things at loose ends, ' but will gather up the threads of his story in a future volume; which,like “Their Wedding Journey,” and “A Chance Acquaintance,' ’ shall be a delightful mixture of guidebook and novel.
