L;fe is like a roll of costly material passing swiftly through our hands, and we most em broider our pattern on it as it goes.

The omission to include ihe game of base ball among the crimes enumerated in the Ha bitual Criminal Act is what will probably ex cite indignation enough ere long to accom plish the repeal ol the law The admiters of George Herbert will be glad to learn that eight poems of bis, hither to unpublished, have been discovered, and will be published at once. It Is said that they throw considerable light on some of the poets religious opinions. The Rev.

It is made of a very fins thread of gold which, by a sort ol knitting machine, is knitted into a tube. This is alterwarde crushed flat, forming a band.

The British Quarterly puts George Eliot as a novelist, above Sir Walter Scott. “She paints with Mi>s Austen's unerring humor and accuracy, and with Sir Walter’s masco lina breadth. Where are there in George El iot’s stories such fantastic and unreal fi urea as Fenella, in ‘Peveril of the Peak.”‘or Meg Merrilies, in ‘Guy Mannering’ ” i The Paris theatres usually retain a critic's seat for his use, even after his connection with the press has ceased. A gentleman who wanted to secure a vacant seat at the Varie ties, on being told that it was taken, weut to the bookkeeper's desk, who, looking in bia book, found the Inflowing entry opposite bia number of thefauteuil: “Setviee de ptesa, M.

The manager of a Lcndon theatie lately condescended to hear iD his sanctum i young man (who had an jinfortuuate hesitation In his speech) read a short three, the sole condi tion being that it should not occupy more time than it took to finish the weed the man ager badjust lit. Away they both star', the one reading, the other smoking, but as the mild Havana reaches its termination, the worse the young author splutters; they firnsh together. Of course the que tion is imme diately put, “What do you think of it?” “Well,” replies Mr. Manager; “net half a bad idea; father, mother, lover, daughter, all stuttering, will have a novel effect.” The author, furious, exclaims: “Tbev don't stam mer. It’s only my misfortune.” “Oh, thec» the play ain’t funny at all; sorry I can’t ac cept it," replied the manager. Worse than Xodocs. AN UNOFFENDING KEGUO TORTUBED ET “respectable*’ white citizens in TEXAS. The following story seems incredible. It is related, however, by a trustworthy news paper, the Austin (Texas) Journal, ot the 2nd inst., from which we quote it entire: “Between the 1st and 10th ot May, 1813, a party consisting of, say half a dozen, more or less, visited a camp of workmen on the rail road (Texas Pacific) twenty m lrs north of Jefferson, in a stale of intoxication, headed by a Mr. Porter, an old citizen of Cass coun ty. Mr. Porier, tbe leader, commenced an attack on a negro man, wbo, tbe bvstauding white man said to Mi Potter, was "a peace able and unoffending man. The negro push ed Mr. Porter off and kept out of the way. At this Mr. Porter took great offenso, bat not considering himself sufficiently strong, went back home, recruited bis party, and returned in a day or so, and found the duties of the negro as a laborer had caused him to change to a camp some miles distant on the railroad. Thither Mr. Porter and his increased force followed, finding the negro engaged at hi* la bor. Porter assumed to be sheriff, and tbe others of tbe party, suboruinates, took the negro piisoncr, bound him fast, (opened his eyes and spit in them tobacco juice, confined him last to one of tbe horses, started off at a fast gait, compelling him to keep up or drag; order ed the negro to bow humbly to ev ery white man they met on the road, and on the streets, of a town through which they passed eu route. Proceeding on their way to a spot sufficiently retired tor thvii diabol ical purposes, they confined the colored man between two small trees, so placing him that he could only niove his bead. Thus located, they deliberately proceeded to make a cross on his forehead by incision with a knife, and then scalped their vic'.iru. After thus inflict ing on him all the torture of which they were capable, they retired a lew paces and finished their barbarous woik by shooting several load* of ammunition into bis exposed and defense less body. After thus cruelly accomplishing their work, they threw the lifeless body into a stream of water convenieut to the scene of action. Thus ended Ibis bloody tragedy, committed in the open light of day, under a pretended cover of law, and in open defiance of the civil authorities. Tbe perpetrators bad not, at last accounts, been arres ed. The above occurienees took place within thirty miles of the citv of Jefferson, one of the largest cities of Texas, «nd a county settled some quarter of a century. It is staled that the perpetrators were composed of old citi zens of tbe county of Cass, iu which the transaction occurred. A Big Bug.—The largest specimen of the iguana, or tree lizard ol South America, that bas ever been seen in this couutry has recent ly been received at th 5 army medical museum at Washington. It was placed in a box which admitted plenty of air, and arrived safely and in seemiug good condition after his long voy age, though he seems disinclined to be good natured over his confinement, or to make nsw aequai tances in his new residence. Tbe rep tile is almost entirely black, o: a dark choco late brown, is 50 inches long, and on tbo top of the head has a large, round protuberance like a swelling, while or each side of tbe bead, near its base, appears similar immense balls. The eye is prominent, very bright, and is of a bright hazel or yellowish color, leaving the pupil brown. The fore feet, or bantX baro the fingers formed very like tbe human band, while the thumb or toe, corresponding to the human thumb, is quite short and is large and round. The joints are protected and covered by a formation resembling armor, an tbs and tail seem at first glance to b« free rom scales, though a closer examination •hows tbe scales to be small and smooth. I'he reptile has not yet been identified as be longing to any species beretolore known, as t docs not appear In Cuvier. It is the inten ion of Dr. Woodward to kill it and prepare the skeleton for mounting; but it has been suggested that a cast be taken before killing for exhibition in the eollection of the Smith sonian institute.
