That makes one lamp post for about every fourteen drunkards. The Memphis criminal who wants a pic nic given to raise funds with which to pay his fine, should be gratified. A select series of dog-figbts is announced among other allurements for the beau rnonde at Saratoga this summer. A New Orleans girl ate a box of castile soap to get rid'of freckles. The mourners remark ed a very peaceful expression about the mouth, at the funeral, but the freckles were as numerous as ever. Six thousand stars are computed to be visi ble to the naked eye on a clear right. Lord Rosse’s famous ‘‘Reflector’’ increases that number to millious, and so do a couple of glasses of Cincinnati whiskey. The Somerville, Tenn., debating society will settle the divorce question and Chinese immigration next week, thus taking an im mense load from the shoulders of the press of Indiana and California. •‘Pretty bad under foot,” said one citizen to another, as they met in the street. “Yes, but it’s fine overhead,” responded the other. “True enough.” said the first, “but then very few are going that way.” Two little girls were lately prattling to gether and one of them said: “We keep four servants, have got six horses, and lots of carriages; now what have you got?” With quite as much pride the other answered “We've got a skunk under our barn.” The least desirable kind of persons for pic nic excursions are those who have a taste for natural history and persist in taking some snakes and poisonous fungi In their lunch baskets. As the season has just commenced it is proper to put people on their guard agaiust such dangerous imbeciles. lor seaside and couutry no prettier hat cau be found than the now fashionable “>.'rols ette,” after Sophie Croisette, a popular ac tress at the Thea.Te Prancals, Paris. They are in reality the old Florida palmetto, twisted and knocked into a very fascinating and jaunty shape. A Shelbyville gentleman tells a pretty story about a snake which he saw cut in two by a train of cars; he says that the head crawled off to the woods, but spoils the whole interest of the romance by tamely adding that the tail lay still. Now he might just as well hare had that tail crawl off too, or arise up and swear at the murderer, or do something ani mated and interesting. Tha most awful case ef being haunted of which we ever read Is reported from Mormon dom. One of the saints who has tried to do his whole duty by the doctrine of polygamy is said to be haunted by the ghost of his wife. What ten-fold horrors must he feci at the sight of this multitudinous spectre, and the thought that perchance he will be at Us mer cy hereafter. A Stage Driver's Remialsceaee. Everybody in Calirornia knows, or ought to know, or at least knows of Col. Andrew Jack son Gambill, familiarly called, by his friends, “Jack Gambill,’’ tor short, iu early times a pioneer packer iu Trinity and Siskiyou. Aware of the fact ’hat the colonel had in ear ly life fi led the responsible position of stage driver in Tennessee and Alabama, the writer once asked him if he had ever known Land Admiral Reeside. “Knowold Reeside, judge? Why, I never knew auybody else; he was a trump, you bet P’ Haring struck a favorite theme, he continued; ‘ I druv stage for the admiral out of Montgomery the whole of the winter, and it was mighty rough, I tell you. Thar bad been a power of rain, equal tu Cali fornia, aud the roads were awful heavy: in fact, in some places it was just as much as a four-boss team could possibly do to pull an empty stage. Veil, in addition to the regular mail under lock and key in the leather bags, there was always a lot of canvas sacks fllle i with about a tou of documents and seeds, mostly the latter,franked by memners of Con' gress. I’d start out about two o’clock in the morning, with all this deck lo*d, making things awfu.ly heavy. As I would be about startin’, the admiral would take me one side, and confidentially remark, ‘Jack, you’ve got a big load of passengers and a tremendous larsemail; you'd better distribute the Con gressional matter as soon as you ean.’ ‘Ail right, says I; and sbo’s you're born, about a mile out of town, in crossing over a creek swelled by the late rain, overboard went ev ery canvas bag. They floated down stream and lodged in a pits of drift /oo4 on a sand bar three-quarters of a mile below. The wa ter iu the branch (ell early in the spring, leaving a large pile of loam about the drift pile, and as the warm weather cum on them congressmen’s seeds began to sprout, and by the middle of summer you ought to have seen my truck patch. Thar was punkins and squashes by the million; parsnips, carrots and all kinds of beets; ruty-beggars and other sorts of turnips. And gourds rundin’ all ov er the driftwood and up into the trees; you'd ought to have seen them gourds I The nig gers from all the plantations tharabouts was in clover. They cum from all quarters and gethered gourds until they couldn't rest. I s'pose you remember the old saying, ‘A fool for luck, a poc man for children, a French man for dogs, and a nigger for gourds.’ Well, judge, the seeds they gathered from that ere truck patch of mine that fall was scat tered all over northern Alabama, and al though my mede o’ distrubutin’ them tbar congressional documents may not have been exactly according to Gunter, jet I consider it did the country at large a powerful sight more good.—San Francisco, Cal. The Nkwspapeb.—Rev. Robert Collyer preached a sermon last week upon “News papers,” his text being from the second chap ter of Daniel, verses 81, 82 and 33, in which he said— As the newspaper makes tributary to its purpose the finest results of science and dis covery, so also it captures the finest power of the current thought and life. Dr. Chalm ers said, many years ago, that the best think ing and the best writing of his day was done for the newspaper. It was a perfect wonder to him how such matchless essays as he read every day could be written on the spur of the moment, in the clash and clang of the imens ed life of the world, and wh n each question that came up for discussion had been sprung then and there on the writer. It is not too much to say that the newspaper article, on the average, is as much better now as the papers are better than those of thirty years ago, on which Chalmers based bis wonoer. It is the result of this devouring enterprise, fed by ample means, which searches through every corner and cranny of the land for men and women of the finest ability, and then fastens them with golden chains, as the old Roman conquerers fastened kings, each in their own place. And, not content with the best thought, It secures, at the same time, the keenest enterprise. It sends news to governments of earthquake and fire, of bat tles and revolutions, far ahead of tneir own swiftest messengers. It sends one man to the heart of Africa, and another to the heart of old Assyria, this to find a lost man, that a lost library, and they both do their work as it could not be done apparently through any other agency, and come back to tell all the world what they have done, in swift clear sentences, which he who runs may read. Nothing escapes this ever-present and all present eve, or, shall I say, this elephant's trunk, which can pick up a pin or wrench down a pme. It mirrors the great m»rket? ®» on® page, and on the other chronicles a strawbeiry festival under * ! reports impartially a murder and a sermon, the small gossip of society, the froth and foaui on the chalice of life* and the vast movements that grow out of all the centu ries aud belt the world, for “it Is the abstract and brier chronicle of the time; showing vir tue her own feature, scorn her own Image, and the very age and body of tho time bis form and pressure.” Whitewashing and Color-Washing. When spring returns and paints ane y the grass with its lovely shades of green, and throws a crimson garland over the branches ot the maples, and covers the elms and oaks with tiny quivering leaves of every emerald tint, we cannot but notice the contrast between the brightness of nature and the blackness of our farm yard fences, barns, stables, and the like. It costs something to paiut such things, and money is often a scarce article in the spring time, b..t hy a little expenditure of time and money we can whitewash or color our prem ises so tliat theyjwill present a very fresh and clean appearance This will also prevent the decay of both out-houses and the fences and destroy the vermin which lurk about the poultry houses and stables. You can prepare a whitewash that will not rub off with everything that comes in contact yvith it, and will also present a glossy appear ance, by using skimmed milk, in lieu of wa ter, for slac >inc the lime, reducing it to a proper consistency. If you desire to apply it to the ceilings af your rooms.(and every room should be thus cleansed and renovated every spring.) take halt a bushel of unslacked lime and slack it in a firkin or pail with boiling hot milk. Then to reduce it to a proper thick ness, add one peck of fine salt dissolved in water, and one-hail pound of powdered whit ing. This mixture makes a most excellent whitewash, which will neither peel nor flake off, and cannot rub off. tor putting on the wash, a pail or bucket with a wire fixed across it is the most suita ble, as you can press the brush upon it, and only take up a small quantity of the wash at a time, and then you can spread it on more easily. In addition to a long handled white wash brush you will require a paint brash to use in the corners of the buildings, and be tween the pickets on the fences. Before commencing to whitewash walls and ceilings, they should be cleaned by pinning a strong cloth or towel over the broom, and wiping off all the dust and tiny cobwebs. It on y requires a little practice to make any one a skillful whitewasher, and saves a few dollars which would have to be paid out to a regular workman. Tobesure.it is net the easiest work, for it will make both your neck and arms ache, but the superior appearance and the cleanli ness r’ill repay you for the pain. A good work, tan will never let a drop fall upon the carpel, but will put his brush perpendicularly into the pail, and press off all that would easily drop. Be careiul not to put too much on at one brushing,and apply it in parallel strokes; then let it dry, and put on another coat. If the ceiling is badly discolored, a little indigo dissolved thoroughly in hot water will give the wash a bluish tint, which will aid in con cealing the 6moky surface. If other colon than white are preferred, they can be obtain ed by adding various pigments to the lime. Thus, for stone color, you can add to half a bushel of lime, four pounds ot raw umber, and two pound of lamp-bl ck. For a fawn color, four pounds of umber, one pound of jamp-black, and one pound of India red; this is an excellent color for out-buildings and fences. For a light pink, you should stir in Spanish brown until the tint is suitable. For a lemon colored wash, add chrome yellow— kalsomine is much used now for nice work. It is made from Paris white and glue sizing. Twenty pounds of the lormer to one pound of the latter. Dissolve the glue In boiling water and add the whiring. Then dilute the mixture with water until of a creamy thick ness. It requires a little practice to know just bow thick to make it, so that it can bo well applied, and it is well to try a little at first upon the wall, so as not to hare it too thin. It is the best coating for walls which are covered with hard finish. How Verdigris Is Made. Verdigris is termed by chemists a “tiibasic acetate of copper,” and is formed by the ac tion of acetic acid upon metalic copper in the presence of oxygen. There are several meth ods of conducting the manufacture; in one the refuse of grapes after the expression of the juice in wine making is used as the source of the acid vbich rises in vapor from the de composing residuum. In another vinegar is used, the copper being dipped in it at inter vals; in a third flannels are wrung in vinegar and wrapped around the copper which tsfhen laid where it will be acted upon by currents of air. The grape refuse is nsed at Moutpelier, in France, in the following manner. The cop per in very thin sheets is rubbed with vine gar and laid away for a time in wa m boxes where the requisite corrosion 1« merely ii i tiated. In the meantime the crape refuse is packed in brrrels and allowed to remain until it begins to undergo acetic fermentation. This accomplished, a portion of the material is spread in the bottom of a ditch lined with brick. On this is placed a layer of the pre pared copper, then more grape refuse, then more copper, and so on, until the pit Is lull. When the grape residuum becomes white its effect is spent The sheets are then re moved and exposed to the air. As soon as they become dry they are wet with water and again exposed, and so on six or seven times in succession, until the layer of verdi gris having become sufficiently thick is scraped off. This done, the plat« is again rubbed with vinegar, and in the grape refuse, etc., undergoes again the same treatment un til completely exhausted.
