The managers of the Vienna Exposition, whose notions are rather feudal, innocently sent to Chicago for a copy of its municipal coat of arms. The mayor was not to te ι bluffed, however. He sent for a sign-painter, consulted with him, set him to work, and shipped the result, whatever it may be.

Paul Akers showed that courage of ideas which becomes an American. He ventured to depart from the received model of the face of Cicero and produced something which gave quite a shock to the preconceived ideas of the world. A gold medallion has since been found, struck during the consulate of Cicero, which quite justifies the American sculptor. A Chicago clergyman announced to his congregation the existence of a place in that city where ·ηβη are drugged and held for ran som, and "tossed out into the stre t that it may appear as if they had died there sudden ly." The question is why the reverend gen tleman doesn't give this information to the police, instead of keeping it for the idside of his church, where none of the city authorities are likely to hear of it. Little Jenny is five year old. Her un cle give her a doll. Jenny cherished her doll with all a mother's care. The other day she was nursing it on her knees ; she started sud denly, the doll fell, and the head was broken off.

A bill in the Interests of New York oyster men was before the Legislature at Albany, the other day, and Senator Pierson innocent ly remarked thit if the backers of the bill wanted it to pass they must send up a barrel of oysters. The oystermen made the mistake of supposing bim in earnest, and a few morn ings ago he was surprised to find that a bar rel ofoysters had been sent to his house. Not being a Congressman lie was so newbai em barrassed, but finally placed then at the dis p >sal ot the Senate, to be put on the clerk's desk during the vote on the bill. The sensation acts iu Philadelphia theaters are so complicated that the strictest accuracy of time and position on the part of the per formers is essential to complete success, and, if any great "hitch" occurs, the resu.ts are setious. For instance, Wednesday evening,a boy, Leo, was to be shot through a pneumat ic tube and to catch by the left eyelid of M Leopold upon the flying trapeze, but the man who did the shooting failed to time exactly M Leopold's winks, and projecting the boy at the wrong time, the little fellow didn't get bis grip and fell upon the stage, 30 feet below, breaking his leg and occasioning much ex citement. M. Thiers, in conversing recently with an American g ntleman on the characteristics of the late Louis Napoleon and Bismarck, said : "Bismarck as a diplomatist has had his schemes, and plots and str; tagems. But in the ma.n he seems to have been distinguished by a certain brutal frankness. It was this startling and unusual quality which deceived men like Napoleon III., men who, never meaning what they said, were quite over powered and amazed to find that Bismarck did mean what he said. It is because the German chancellor has not been a conspira tor that, dealing with conspiratois, he has gained his astonishing succejs." The Truth about the Haunted School The Blne-Hyed Cibo»«—W hal ihe laTnl . gating Cammilfrr Feinil Oat—τ h« Cm feuien ef «he B«j·, nod the Ck«l Tkc·. rγ Kxplad<-<l. [Correspondence of the Springfield Union.] Newbcrypobt, March 17. Returning to the city of my nativity and home after a few months' sojourn in the vi cinity of Spr-ngficld, I fonnd the whole city excited and moved by the wonderful gh st stories which have been making so much of a stir recently. When away from here the first question askeil nie, when my residence became known, was '-do you know about the haunted school house? ' and I naturally made an examination into the matter one of my first duties upon my return. Despite all that has been written upon this subject, there i« one thing connected with the Newburyport ghost story that hag never got into priut, and that is a fact that many year» ago a stern teacher punished a little boy by putting him into the small cellar under this entry, referred to in the accounts of the manifestations, and went home, forgetting to release him. His cries at last attracted the attention of a ntighbor who found tje boy much exhausted and in a cold perspiration from his fright. He cared for him kindly but the child never .^covered from the fright and died soon afterwards. Here was a charming basis for a "blue-eyed ghost," and I could wish that ail the victims of torture, whether in district school houses or else where, might have the power to return and frighten their tormentors. But the more I have looked into the mat ter, the better satisfied I am that the Jis turber of the peace of the teacher and schol ar! of the Charles street school came not from the spirit-world. The present teacher is a well-educated and energetic young lady, beloved by both parents and pupils, ana only one of the sixty-three scholars permanently left the school, although the manifestations have been increasing since the aatumn term. Once, only, the teacher was thrown off her guard, and lost her presence of mind for a moment The school house was daily thronged with curious visitors and the excitement constant ly grew and wideued until the school board thought test to appoint a committee of inveeti gation. Two members of this committee wert ministers, aud as their action and report have teen pretty sharply Titicised in some quarters, I will sketch the men as they appear to cue after a long personal acquaintance. Rev. Dr. Spauldir.g, the pastor of the White field church, has resided here twenty-six years, is not a grave, sour preacher, but a man full ot energy and public spirit, a jolly man, fond of a joke, never cut out for a fireacter, though he has been very successful η building up bis church, but more through his administrative talent and his love ot busi ness. He is a man to whom sedentary, studi ous life is abhorrent; he can eccomplkh a great amount of work, and should have been a business man. He bas a clear bead, little bigotry and quick sympathies. His friend. Rev. Mr. Johnson, the rector of the Episcopal church, was born to the sur plice, a handsome man, regular profile, of a poetic temperament, quiet, gentlemanly mann< rs and with a calm, firm faith in all the thirty-nine articles. They were agisted in their investigation by Richard Plnmmer, a man wholly unline the other two, quick, im pulsive, somewhat free thinking now, but formerly a zealous Calvinist, and >ery active in revivals. Atterwar Is he was so firm a be liever in Millerism tbat he made all his prepa ations to ascend on a certain day. The re port of this committee and a personal iuter view with the rentlemen themselves, have prepared me to give your readers -what may be relied upon as the authentic history of the haunted school l.ouse. The first thing which the comic ittee did was to make a thorough examination of the premises, and they found the baildinfg in great need of repairs, a notable characteristic of "haunted" houses every wbtre. Patches of plaster ng bad (alien from tbe ceiling, the cellar was easil.v accessible irom the outside, tbe iront door was usually left unlocked, aad from the trout entry the attic was reached without the slightest obstacle of lock or bolt The cellar small, extending only under the entry. The attic is not floored. A ledge ex tends under tbe building, so that the chop ping of wood in a neighboring house, can be distinctly heard in the school room. The comii. ittee caused suitable repaiis to be made, so that now the cellar cannot be entered ex cept by unfastening the bolts on the inside. A trap door has been placed at tbe head of Ue attic stairs, secured by a padlock, and the front door is Kept locked. After the repairs many of the disturbances ceased, though it Is well known that ghosts, like Cupid, laugh at bolts and looks. The principal manifestations have been: A boy neatly dressed in a suit of b.own, trimmed withjbraid and buttons ot the same color,who, when the teacher tried to grasp him, sudden ly disappeared ; five minutes atter the return of a boy sent to hang up the brushes in the attic stair way, th. ee raps came upon the stairway door, and on openinz it,toe brushes, long and short, came falling off the nails, and tbe dust pan came tumbling down into tbe school room; a ball rolled around the attic, making such a noise that it was necessary W) close tbe ventilator; the appearance ot hand· and taces at the wind >w looking into the en try; laughter and voices sounding as if in the school room yet not proceeding irom the pu pils; rappings at the ventilator and cellar stairs. If any readers will note these statements carefully, and compare them with the follow ing confessions of the boys,they will, perhaps, be able to solve sotne of the mysterious ap pearances. A, confessed that he repeatedly went into the entry and put up bis hands be fore tbe window, passing it back and forth ; B, that he played ghost, covering hit face with a white cloth ; C, taat i<e was kept from school by his mother on account of a sore foot, but went to the entry, that the teacher came out of the school room at the dour far thest from tbe attic stairs, and finding be could not escape by the front door, retreated vp tbe attic slairs, followed by the teacher, that he slipped by her, ran down the stairs and escaped, tbe teacher, he Bald, being much frightened ; C and D said they both played ghost to frighten the giris in a neigh boring school, and two or three others stated that they had often climbed the trees and tried to throw shadows and bright lights Into the room, and that they have often rapped on tbe cellar door from tbe inside. Balls of elastic cord were found, and alio a spike suspended in the collar way, so arrang ed that it could sive troublesome rappings, and a joist, formerly used to fasten tbe trap door, fixed so as to strike tbe floor above. Nobod/disi utes the ''cutenese" of Yankee boys, and bovs in a New England seaport town are su mucl< like fish that it takes an old hand to catch 'em. Tbe newsp per re porters who came from Boston to tni* place did not know where to cast their bait, aud failed. Had they employed an old salt, they might have found the truth sooner, had they desired it. There are still some of our citizens who are reluctant to part with the blue-eyed gh"?t clad in brown, but iu the light of what the investigations have reveal ed, it require* a deal of credulity to believe that the manifestations had any more ghtstly origin than very wide awake ard roguish school boys. niftCBLLANEOCII NOTICES.
