Never think of enjoying the satisfac tion of seeing others happy; but rather, if you see a smiling face, be jealous, lest another should enjoy what you have not. Knvy every one who is better off, in any respect, than vourself; think unkindly to wards them and speak ill of them, lie constantly afraid others may en croach upon your rights; be watch lul against it," and if any one comes near your things, him like a mad dog.

SNOW AND MOSQUITOES. —TIM manner in which geographical dis tance, as well as time, is annihilated by the magnetic telegraph is well brought out by a circumstance that happened on Monday night last, along the line which tretohes from Cape Breton, an extreme British province, to New Orleans. There was something in tho condition of the atmosphere that night which en abled the line to work to unusual advantange, and the operators at the extreme euds indulged for a while in some jocular conversation. The fol lowing are two of the messages sent, and they will show that not only were space and time annihilated, but even opposite seasons were brought together. Sydney, Cape Breton, to New Orleans—" come good. Glad to hear from sunny New Or leans. It's snowing hard here." New Orleans to Sidney—" It's quite sultry to-night.. We are fighting Mosquitoe*.

DUCTED. —The French mode of con-; ducting mictions is curious. In sales of importance, such as of land, ' houses, etc, theattair is placed in the hands of a notary who, for the time being, becomes an auctioneer. The, properity, whatever bo its nature, | is usualy first examined by compe tent judges, who fix upon it a price, considerable less than its value, but: always sufficient to prevent any ruin ous loss by a concerted plan or com bination of bidders. The property is then ottered, conformably to previous notice, with this fixed valuation

statod. The notary-auctioneer is j provided with a number of small wax tapers, each capable of buruinsr three or five minutes. As soon as a bid is made one of these tapers is placed in view of all the interested parties and lighted. If before it expires another bid is offered it is immediately ex tinguished and afresh one placed in its stead, and soon until one flicker* and dies of itself, when the last bid j becomes irrevocable. Th*is simple plan prevents all contention among rival bidders, and affords each a re son able opportunity for reflection before making • higher otter than bis predeceaaor. liv this mean*, too. tbeauctioreer i« prevented from ex-' ervtaing undue influence u|>on tbe (•Hitler*, or ha*tl» accepting the I <»f a favontr.

It. contains so much truth, that \ve extract it for the benefit of our readers : 44 If the poor house lias any ter rors for you, never buy what yon don't want. Before you pay three cents for a jewshurp, my' boy, ascer tain whether you cannot makojust as pleasant a noise by whistling, lor which nature furnishes the machine ry; and, before you pay seventy dol lars for a coat, young man, find out whether your ladv would not bo just a < glad to see you in one that cost hulfthe money. If she would not, let her crack her own hazle-nuts, and buy her own clothes. When you see a young man spending two or .three dollars a week foolishly,'the chances arc fivo to one that he'll live long enough to know how many cents there are ina dollar; if he don't, ho' 9 pretty suro to bequeath that privilege his 'widdow.

Tell us, Willt&m, who made you ?" William, who was considered n fool, screwed up his face, looked thoughtful, and somewhat bewil dered, replied: " Moses, I s'spose." 44 That will do," said Counsellor Orey, and addressing tho court — 44 The witness savs lie supposes M oses made him. That is an intel ligent answer, and more than I thought him capable of giving, for it shows that he has some faint idea of Scripture. I submit that it is not sutlicient for him to be sworn as a witness, capable of giving evidence." 44 Mr. Judge," said tho fool, " may I ax the lawyer a question ?" " Certainly," said the Judge. " Well, then, Mr. Lawyer, who d'ye s'pose made you ?" 44 Aaron, I s'pose," said Counsel lor Grey, imitating the witness. After the mirth had somewhat subsided, the witness drawled out: 44 Wall, now, wo do read in tho book that Aaron OIICO made a calf, but who'd thought the darned critter had got in here if" The J iiiigc ordered the man to be sworu.

No army, no Govern ment, and no earthly power can com' pel the South to treat four milliona of men justly if the inhabitants, whether rightly of wrongly, regard these men as tlio cause, or even the occasion, of and di« j frauchisement. But no army, or Gov ernment, or power will be required when Southern society is occupied and prospering in the re newed Union. Then the negro will be felt to be necessary to Southern industry, and interest will join with conscience and Icindnes3s in securing for him favorable treatment from his fellow-citizens.
