Gossip and Gleanings. Oue of the most successful of burglars is light, it is always breaking iu on somebody. Edwin Booth, it is rumored, will appear next season in a superior melodrama, enti tled, ‘‘Aaron Burr; or, Dreams of Empire.’’ The New York Herald thinks that J. T. Headley has written more forgotten books than most meu living. Man may be a worm; but a glance at the dandies proves that he is not the worm that never dyes. The training and discipline our lawyers go through, in my judgmeut, tends, after a time, to unfit a man for an accurate determination upon the facts.—Georue Hoar. An orphan, under age, married his female guardian in Illinois the other day, and was compelled to get her written consent to his marriage before the wedding could take place. “Will you venture on au orange ?” asked a hostess of Leigh Hunt, at dessert. “Not without imminent danger of falling off, mad am,” was his reply. They have local option at Danville,Pa.,and crackers arc ten cents apiece. But crackers are dry eating, you know, so appropriate bev erages are served alongside. Theodore Hook was once asked for a con tribution to the treasury of the Society for the Conversion of the Jews. He said he was quite unable to give any money, but if the so ciety w'ould send him a Jew, he would do his best to convert him. It is said that “necessity is the mother of invention,” but go to the Patent Office, in Washington, and they will fell you that in vention is the mother of necessity. Niue in ventors out of ten die poor; the other tenth die mad. _ At the Garrick Club they were disputing whether Mario or Lord Castlereagh first pos sessed the affections of Madame Grisi. Thackeray solemnly exclaimed, “Mario sat down on the ruins of Castlereagh.” “Most extraordinary,” said Sergeant War ren, the author of “Ten Thousand a yeer,” who was always boasting of his visits at great houses; “dined at the Duke of Northumber land’s on Monday, and there was no fish for dinner.” “No,” cried Douglas Jerrold, “they had ate it upstairs.” The youthful mind is observe nt and in quiring, but it lacks experience. Young Tomkins borrowed a gun to go sparrow shooting, and not understanding the breech loading system began to ram down the car tridge. He has since frequently observed how lucky it was that in an idle hour be learned to write with his left hand. Mr. Ruskin. the champion fault finder of the age, attributes the reason why weekly bills in England are now double, to the pro duction of the following articles, which are enough to alarm the least nervous pater fa milias: “Iron plates, iron guns, gun pow der, internal machines, infernal fortresses floating about, infernal fortresses standing still, infernal means of infernal locomotion, infernal lawsuits, infernal parliamentary elo cution, infernal beer, infernal gazettes maga zines, statues, pictures.” The Loudon Temple Bar, in review of For ster’s biography of Dickens, says, “Without impeaching Mr. Forster's sincerity or respect in any degree—without imputing to him a particle of the treacherous ingratitude, aud deadly damaging cunning which made Leigh Hunt’s ‘Life of Byron’ notorious—it may be gravely doubted whether the little poet dealt the great one’s memory a more cruel blow than Mr. Forster, in the character of a mourn g mentor out of work, has dealt the memory of Telemachus Dickens.” Rouud the World on a Wager. Translation for the Press of “La Tour du Monde enQuartre-Vingts Jours" of Jules Verne. CHAPTER IV. At half past nine Phileas Fogg, having gained twenty guineas at play, took leave of his honorable colleagues aDd' left the Reform Club. At forty-five minutes past nine, he opened the door and entered hU mansion. Passepartout who had conscientiously stud ied his programme was surprised to see Phil eas Fogg appear at this eh warrantable hour. Following his own rules, the occupant ot 8a ville Row ought to return at midnight pre cisely. Mr. Fogg went to his room—then he called, “Passepartout.” Passepartout did not reply —the call could not be for him—it was not the hour. “Passepartout”, called again Mr. fogg without raising bis voice. Passepartout entered the qhamlier. ‘‘It is the second time that I have called you”, said Phileas Fogg. “But it is not midnight,” replied Passepar tout, notice in hand. “I know it,” replied Mr. Fogg, “I do not find aDy fault. We leave in ten minutes for Dover and Calais.” A sort of grimace spread itself over the round face of the Frenchman—it was evident he did not understand. “Monsieur leaves home ?” asked he. “Yes,” replied Phileas Fogg, “we go to make a journey round the world.” Passepartout, astonished, murmured “a journey round the world ?” “In eighty days,” replied Mr. Fogg, “so we have not a moment to lose.” “But the trunks?” asked the servant, who swayed himself unconsciously from right to left. “No truuks, a carpet bag only. Inside two woolen shirts, three pairs of socks,_so much for you, we will buy as we go. Have some good shoes—some where, we may be obliged to walk. Bring do wn my rubber coat and traveling map. Go.” Passepartout wished to reply-but he could not, and left the chamber—went to his own room, and fell upon a chair. “Myself who wished to lead a quiet life,”he said to himself, ah well! and mechanically began prepara tions for departure. “The tour of the world in eighty days? Was he the servant of a fool? No—it was a joke—they would go to Dover —well— to Calais perhaps.” After all it waa lot entirely disagreeable to the youth, who lad not, during five years, trodden the soil >f his native land. Perhaps .they would go o Paris, and he woul 1 see again with pleaa lre the grand capital. But. certainly, a gen lernan so considerate of his steps would itop t'lere. Yes, without doubt, but it wis io less true, that he went away—that he ourtieyed—this gentleman so domestic until low. AtlOP. M. he had prepared the small traveling bag, which contained his own and ms master’s wardrobe, and, wi’h a distorted Mnnt’ he carefully closed the door of hi* .room _> *<,lt m l*'s master. Mr. Fogg was ready tineniainnli?udcr hl8 arm “Bradshaw’* Cou a' Guide ” Stea,n Transit, and Geuer Jhewith all took the bag from *e ‘ rian? j0Un,ey; H placed within a large bundle of ff ^oto current in all countries 0 k notes “You have forgotten nothing?" asked he “Nothing Monsieur.” 8 a8Ked “My rubnbercoat aud shawl?” “There they are.” “Well, take this bag and take care of it, there are £20,000 in it,” The bag almost escaped from the hand of Passepartout, as if the bank note* had been gold, and very heavy. The master and ser vant descended then, and the street door close^with a double bolt. They found a car riage at the extremity of Bavilie Row, which took them rapidly in the direction of the Gate of Charing Cross—terminus of one of the brances of the south eastern railway. At 10:18 o’clock, the carriage halted, and Passepartout descended. His master follow ed, payiug the coachman. At this moment, a poor mendicant bolding a child by the hand, approached Mr. Fogg anc asked for alms. He dr w from hi* pock et the twenty guineas gained at whist and gave them to the poor woman—“I am glad to have met you,” he said, and passed Tuto the station. Passepartout felt a tear in his eye—hi* master bad touched bis heart. Mr. Fogg gave the servant an order to take two tickets —first class— for Paris, then, turning, he perceived his fire colleagues of the Reform Club. "Gentlemen—I go,” be said, “and the different ‘visas’ on my passport, will enable me to prove my journey/’ "Oh! Mr. Fogg,” rtflied Walter Ralph, “that is useless—we will answer on your honor as a gentleman.” “It is better so,” said Mr. Fogg. “You do not forget when you are to return?” ob served Andrew Stuart. “In eighty days,” replied Mr. Fogg, “Sat urday the 21st of December 1872, at 10-36 o’clock in the evening—1 shall see you again gentlemen. ’ At 10 30 P. M., Phileas Fogg aud servant , took their seats in the same c impart men*. Five minutes later, the whistle sounded and the train left. The night was dark, a fine rain was falling. Mr. Fogg leaning on his arm in his comer did not speak. Passepartout, confused, grasped absently the bag and bank notes. But tbe train had not passed Sydenham, when he gave a despairing cry. “What is the matter?” inquired his man ner. “There is—that—in my hurry—in my con fusion—I have forgotten.” “What?” “To put out the gas iu my chamber.” “Never mind,” replied Mr. Fogg coldly, “it bums at your expense.” chapter V. Phileas Fogg in leaving London did not dream, doubtless, the grand sensation bis de parture would cause. The ne vs of the bet spread among the members of the Chib, and produced great excitement, Id tha tHon. circle. The excitement passed from the Club to the journals, aud through them to the London public, and alt the United Kingdom. Tbs ques'ion of the tour of tte world was com mented on discussed, dissected with as much heat has if it had been auother Alabama af fair. Some took sides with Mr Fogg, while others—and they formed a large mgjoriw— pronounced against him. Tbe lour of the world to be accomplished ft) this minimum of time, except in theory or ou paper, with the means of communication actually in use—it was not only impossible—it was absurd to think of it. All the journals declared themselves against him, except the Daily Telegraph. He was called mad, eccentric, tool, and his colleagues of the Club were generally blamed for having taken the bet—which showed evidently a mental weakness in the au.bor of it. During the first five days which followed the departure of the gentleman, many impor tant liets were made upon the probabilities of his enterprise. We know that the race of bet tors in England is more intellectual, more elevated than the world of players. Betting is a part of tbe English character. Not only the members of the Club made considerable bets, but the mass of the public generally en tered into the movement. ‘Phileas Fogg’ at prime or premium was bought and sold— and some large sales were made. But five days after bis departure and after the adverse article in tbe Bulletin of tbe Geo graphical society, Phileas Fogg stock began to mil. Duly one partizan remained to him—the old paralytic Lord Albemarle. This honora ble gentleman, confined to bis chair, would have given his fortune to be able to make it in ten years even—bet £5,000 on tbe side of Phileas Fogg and, even when the foolishness of the project was demonstrated to him, con tented liimselfby saying—“If the thing is feasible, it is well that an Englishman should be the first to accomplish it.” Seven days after his departure, an incident completely unexpected, changed the whols aspect of aifairs. About nine o’clock in the evening the Chief of Police received this tele gram: Suez to Yxudon, Rowan, Chief of Police, Central Administration — Scotland Place. I track tbe thief of the Bank—Phileas Fogg. Or der warrant at Bombay—Euglish India. Tix, Detective. Tbe effect of this dispatch was soon appar ent. The honorable gentleman disapp.ared to give place to a thief of bank notes. His photograph deposited with those of his col leagues of the Reform Club, was examined aud presented line for line tbe mau whose description had been Airnisbed by tbe police. They remembered that the life of Fogg was mysteiious—his isolation, bis departur>, and it appeared evident that this man bad, in making the journey round the world, under the pretence of a foolish bet, no other object, than to mislead the police.
