Two grand transverse aven ues—extending to the roof, hut not continued across the central garden -divide the whole pile into fonrquad rant-shaped sections. Twelve inter mediate avenues, radiating in like manner from the center, three in each section, again subdivide the whole into sixteen grand national departments each covering about two and a half acres. Passing from the center, outward, through any of these avenues, the visitor will in spect thirteen successive departments of the civilization of that nationality assigned to uitherside of the avenue; the first being that of fine arts, and the second a museum of the his tory of labor, from the rudest ages.

I THE " BLESSTN' PLATE."— Little Tommy K could not often find a seat at the first table, there being quite a large family ofgrown persons. One day, some member being absent, Tommy was allowed to take his place. The plates were of white stone china, and as was customary, were turned upside clown, thus show ing thejrnde-niark and maker's name on tho bottom. " Well," said Tommy, " I'm glad I've got tho hlessin'-plate for once." " why, Tommy, what makes you think you have the blessing-plate '<" asked his mother. " Why, don't grandpa read the blessin' oil' the bottom of the plates ?" wiid Tommy. Sword blades resembling those of Damascus are made at Sol ingen, Germany. A faggot is first formed of alternate bars of iron and steel. It is drawn out, doubled and twisted several times,ami thc-n formed into a ribbon. Two such ribbons arc welded together, enclosing be tween them a thin blade of tho host cutting English steel. After polish ing it is dipped in diluted sulphuric acid to give it a pattern. A Connecticut Yankee has cleared his house of rats by catching one and dipping him in red paint. He then let him loose, and the oth er rats not liking his looks, left ini mediately.

These springs cover an area of ahot t ihreo acres. Tho wa ter is hitiling hot, and tho escaping steam can he seen for several miles before sunrise, and the atmosphere it* the vicinity is tilled with tho smell of sulphur. Tho water cures the rhenmat's n effectually. There tre crevices in the rocks where tho wa ter can be seen boiling at a depth of thirty feet. There is also a spring which is called the BreathingSprin<j. It is shaped much like a well. Tho water recedes to the depth of ten or twelve feet, and remains calm for live mimics, and then commences to boil, and rises until it shoots in the air above ten feet, and in five min utes it begins to recede. Tt'iUvisit PHOVKIUJS.— A small stone often makes a great noise. A fool ish friend is, at times, n greater annoyance than n wise enemy. You'll not sweeten your mouth by saying " honey." If a man would live in peace ho should bo blind, deaf, and dumb. Do good and throw it into the sea, if the fish know it not, the Lord will. Who fears God need not fear man. If thy foe be as small as a gnat, fancy him as largo as an elephant. A man who weeps forev ery one will soon have lost his eye sight. More is learned from conver sation than from books. A friend is of more worth than a kinsman. lie rides seldom who never rides any but a borrowed horse. Trust to tho whiteness of his turban who bought tho soap 011 credit. Death ia a black camel, that kneels before every man's door. psjf It is a curious fact connected with deep mining, that from tho hours of twelve ut night till three in the morning tho disturbing influence in the bowels of tho earth obtains increased activity. At that time it is observed by miners that water falls from places where none is ob servable during the day. Tho vol ume in tha wheel is perceptibly in creased, the atmosphere U charged willi gasses which often prevent the lights from burning, and small par ticle-: of earth and rock arc observed to tidl from the tops ot the drives.

THE TALLOW TREE.— The tallow tree of China, which gives rise to a vast trade in the northern parts of that em pire, has been introduced into In dia. It grows with great luxurance in thoDihocns and in the Kotistan of the northwestern provinces and tho Punjab, and now there are tens of thousands of trees in tho Govern ment plantations Kowlaghir, Ilawul Baugli and Ayar Tolle, from which tons ot seeds arc available for distri bution. Dr. Jameson prepared from the seed one hundred pounds of tal low, and forwarded fifty pounds to the Punjab railway, in order to to have its properties as a lubricator for railway machinery testod. For burn ing tho tallow is excellent; it gives a clear, bright, inodorous flame, and is without smoke. Tho tree fruits abundantly both in the Dhoons and plains, and grows with great rapidity. Many trees raised from seeds intro duced eight years ago, being now six feet in eircumforonco at tnrce feet from the ground. The timber ia white and close grained, and well fit ted for printing blocks. Tho leaves, too, are valuable as a dye. FRIGHTENED SNAKE. — Two young Nimrods, seeking what they might shoot in ehnpo of birds of prey, es pied a woodpecker just making his entrance into a sassafras stuuip at a point some twenty-five feet from the ground. Not being quick enough to " bring him down" with powder and shot, one of tho hunters pro posed bringing him down by climb ing to his retreat. lie had ascended to within a few feet of tho nest, when, to his infinite amusement, a black snake that had taken up his abode in the same treo, projected his head and forked tongue almost in tho climber's face. Thore was a " sudden gone ness," not only about tho stomach, but in ever limb of tho aspirant, when his downward teudeucy was truly alarming. But the earth was soft and with returning breath came consciousness. To his companion's enquiry it lie was much hurt, he re plied. don't be alarmed, I'm all right; but if yon want to see a scared snake, just climb up into that tree about twenty feet.

Tlie chi'd whose go "1 nfliecs are always readv when wanted to run up stairs and down, j»et chips or rock tlie cradle, to run on an errand and right hack, all with a cheerful look and please it temper, has a reward along with such duties. If a little girl cannot tako her grand father on her lap, «3 he takes her on his, she can get the slippers, or put away the book, or gently comb hia thin locks: and whethersho things of it or not, these little kindnesses that conic from a loving heart are the sunbeams that lighten up a dark and woful world. BELIEVE THE BEST.— lie who thinks better of his neighbors than they de serve cannot be a bad man, for tl.e standard by which his judgment is formed is the goodness of his own heart. It is the base only who be lieve all men base, or in other words, like themselves. Few, however, are all evil. Even Nero did a good turd for somebody—for when liome was rejoicing over his death some loving hand covered his grave with flowers. Public men are seldom or never fair ly judged while living. However pure, they cannot escape calumny ; however incorrect, they are sure to find eulogists. History mayjdo them justice, but they rarely get it while alive, either from friend or foe. KISSINU. —Josh Billings says there is "one cold, bluo, lean kiss, that always makes hiiu shiver to see. Two pcrßousF(ov the femuil persua sion) who have witnessed a grate menny yunger and more pulpy daze, meat in sum public place, and not heving saw each uther for 24 hourir, they kiss imtnegiately—then they tulle about the wether and theyung man who preached yesterday, and then they kiss, and then blnsh and larf at what they say tu ech uther, and kiss again immegiately. This kind of kissing allers put mc in mind of 2 old Hints tryin to strike fire." THE LOCAL PAPER. —The following well-told truth is from the Chicago Republican: " Whether the people will it or not the local paper is their representative abroad, their embassador in foreign I >arts, by which they mast be judged, jet them, then, take a patriotic in terest iu giving it news, co-operation and patronage. Like every.' other duty performed, it will p*y in the lopg run."
