Greatness stands upon a precipice, and if prosperity carry a man never so little beyond his ρ <ise, it overbears and dashes him to pieces.—Colton. Men are often capable of Kreater things than they perform ; they are sent into the world with bills of credit, and seldom draw to their full extent. Little differences between men in Georgia are amicably adjusted by the application of a four-pound weight to the eyebrow of one of th-im. Δ youn? couple were married at Crestline, Ohio, six years ago, and the secret only came out the other day. The wife's mother has quit boxing her ears. Parchment paper is the correct material upon which to write your invitations, and you must have a huge wax seal on the en velope. The Western press avows its willingness to accept the theory of spontaneous generation, if potato bugs appear after such a winter as the one we have just passed. One of the differences between millinery establishments and oysters, is that the for mer have only two opening days in the year, while for the latter every day ia an opening day. According to the Spanish proverbs, four persons are wanted to make a good salad—a spendthrift for oil, a miser for vinegar, a counsellor for salt, and a madman to stir all up· The Young Men's Christian Association of Chicago propose to supply all of the trains going out of that city with Bibles. It would oe tar more reasonable and encouraging to supply all the trains going in.—Coinmertial Advertiser. A worthy citizen, not altogether posted in the etiquette proper to such occasions, lately hung his door-bell with white s lk ribbons, to indicate that his daughter's wedding was go ing on inside. A Southern publisher complains because some of his subscribers understood the print ed words "received payment" on the dun nrag bills he sent them, as an intimation that he forgave them their debts. In the case of "Reade against the Morniug Advertiser,' it is announced that the govern ing body of the Society of Licensed Victuallers have come to a unanimous determination to move for a new trial. A Danbury family which is sustained by charity almost perished from hunger on Fri day night. The little girl who daily makes the rounds in quest of food was prevented from going oat, that morning, by losing one of her ear-rirgs. The Chicago Post prints this: The boy who forged his mother's name to a shingle with a piece of chalk, aDd bought five cents' worth of candy with the bogus order, now languishes and slumbers on all fours at night. The mother got possession of the shingle. It is the belief in St Louis that all ques tions of international law have been referred at Washington to Caleb Cushing, for three centuries past. He also drafted the Declara tion of Independence, and got his clerk, Thomas Jeffers.n, to engross it.—Commercial Advertiser. Ex-President Hopkins, of Williams, is not deeply interested iu college boating schemes, but expr:sses tisprefereuce fora skull race, the effect of which shall be to develop the cerebrum and the cerabellum, rather than the biceps. The Saturday Review takes the Nation to task, with severe and scorching irony, for speaking of "commencement addresses'; and gravely supposes that "the Nation means beginnings!'' Nothing could be finer than this. ''La Parisienne" is a new bustle. It is very light, and is formed of sleel springs encased in a thin n aterial. Over these are three flounces made of thin goods which will starch well, and these can readily be removed for washing. It does not extend over the hips, but is very bouffant iu the back. A society statistician Calculates that if all the yards of silk in ruined "last season's ! dresses" were sewed together they would form a band as long as the Pacific railroad. This is most important for the world to know; we don't know why, but that's what the statistician says. The Owle, α blrde of worthie gravity Upon a boughe, perplexed by day did sitte And merrie little fowies about him flew Mock ng and pecking him, to show their witte : But when the ni^hte came and each blrde of day Would laine returue her to her quiet neste The Owle diJ eprcade hie wings and flie abroade, And make a sorrie ende to allé their jestc. A Democratic paper says Gen. Grant is anxious for a war, so his son's militarv ad vancement will be more rapid. In case be succeeds in bringing one about, Sheridan and Sherman will be at once assassinated, and young Grant at once made General of the Army. We must keep a lynx eye on our lib erties. The average Vermont widow, after burying her husband, takes satisfaction from the thought that she knows where he sleeps nights. The extent to which this is capable of softening the keen agony of separation, can only be appreciated by those whose mar ried life is not blessed by such perfect knowl edge. W. J. Hennesey, the well-known American artist, is receiving warm recognition from London critics. He has made rapid progress within the last two years, aud sold his Royal Academy picture before it was exhibited. Furthermore, the painting (an American au tumn scene) gave so much satisfaction us to secure the sale of this year's exhibition pic ture, which, of course, at that time was slumbering in the artist's braiD. Edmund Yates has discovered a wonderftil likeness between the face and figure of Gen eral Sheridan and those of Napoleon the Great. As, excepting Eastlake's, which was very fiatttering, the only portrait of N&poleon that had anything like photographic accuracy was suppressed for that reason, it is very dif ficult to ascertain exactly how the First Con sul really looked, and there is hence a deli cious intangibility in these alleged resem blances. It Is said that a woman got a divorce from her husband in Kentucky because he went to a meeting of the Good Templars, leaving her at home to take care of the baby. And this show* the evil of too much temperance. Had not a great prluclple intervened the baby might have been brought up on the bot tle, so permitting the mother to attend the meeting of the Good Templars; and the husband might have gone quietly about that other business which has nothing to do with the lodge. A Syracuse gentleman and his wife left home, a few days ago, for an extended South ern tour, intending to visit Florida. They got as far as New York, and in visiting one of the theatres there the gentleman, was robbed of his wallet, containing the several hundred dollars with which he was to defray the expenses of the trip. In the rear of that gentleman's Syracuse house may be seen a thoughtful man chopping wood in his shirt sleeves, while a sad-eyed woman within spat* butter and sighs. This is tilt manner in which the famous "Wild Bill" met his death, according to a Iter from Salina Couuly, Kansas : "—you remember him?—has been killed A gentleman from Texas, whose brother the wild one had sent to the spirit land, came up to Kansas to have a shot at William. He shot the Wild William ro dead that he never quivered. Think of a man's buying a grand horse, riding him nine hun dred miles just to kill a fellow. When the Texan thot Wild Bill, he as ked the crowd in the bar-room, if any gentleman had a desire to "mix in if so, he should take great pleasure in killing bim. No gentleman ex pressing a desire to be killed, the Texan got on his horse, and remarking that he had busi ness in Ttxas, slowly started for the Lone Star State. Recent Publications. Woman in American Society, by Abba Gooi.d Woolson. This is a thoroughly enjoyable and satis factory book. It is one of the few publica tions of late year* which have compelled from us the tribute of being read through at on· sitting. Although the articles of which it is composed were written for a daily journal, yet they group themselves very well into a com pact appeal for a better and truer life for wo men. Although the sympathy of the author with the proposed changes in the political re lations of women is apparent, the book itself is largely devoted to sensible reforms to be made by women themselves and In their so cial relations. And thij is accomplished not by the way of set discourse but in a series of truthful pictures of woman's life as It now is from girlhood to maturity and old age. II opens w-th a bright and loving description of the school girl who has yet to learn the due and diviue superiority of the male of her spe cies and who dreams of a manhood as lofty and pure, as her own thoughts. After grad uation comes thî sense of uufitness, of being out of place, born of the incompatibility of wide hopes and the narrowness of the limita within which society hac thus far ordained that women shall uove. In time the one yields to the many and not a tèw girb who meant to be worthy of their nature· sink to the level of the rest and think the whole duty of woman solved la getting decently married;—and havl· g no other future devote themselves to the sacred private lei "Wild Bill mystery of clothes, charitable fairs and the the duty of looking beautiful and pleasing the gentlemen. Αι the result of too mnch indoor life, of ill-adapted clothing, many lose health, ard, worst of all, take dreary com fort in it, and are respected therefor by their neighbors. The chapters on "Invalidism as as a Pursuit," and the "Physical Education of Girls" are well worthy most careful read ing. But it is impossible in the space we have, to give any full idea of the book. It is not all devoted to questions of social reform. There are besides some beautiful picture· like tlie chapters entitled "A sojourn in Ar cadv" and of "Grandmother's Houses." There is a charm abont the latter which makes you forget the present and takes you back to your grandmother's house and the wonders and mysteries that used to be there until you live over again some of the sweet est hours of childhood. While almost all Mrs. Woolson's views are stated in language as pleasant as It is clear and felicitous she is not incapable of that fine cutting which injures people so that they never know it until they shake themselves and fall to pieces. The irony of the first three pages of chapter IX is delicious. Published by Roberts Bros., of Boston. For sale by Loring, Short & Harmon. The Latest Glimpse of Andt Johnsob is turnished by a correspondent of the Cin cinnati Gazette at Nashville, Tennessee, who says: Ex-President Johnson Is here snuffing the political breeze for some official position doubtless. Mr. Johnson is still elastic in step and firm in carriage, although age is clearly getting a hold on bim, as is evidenced by his gray locks ard the clearly defined crow's feet at the outward corners oi his eyes. I fancy, too, that I can discover a tinge of disappointment in his countenance. He occupies his old room. No. 6, in the Max well bouse where he receives his friends and talks over the pas.., and it is whispered, a>so plotd for the future. Mr. Johnson, aa to per sonal bearing, is, among the human species, something what the eagle is among birds. H· seems to be conscious of his own superiority. When he Is not on exhibition on state occsr sions be moves through the crowd and along the street in a stately, yet becoming manner, and, if he meets an isolated btranger, looks bim in the face as if he expected to be recog nized. If the party tails to speak, be passes on in silence, with perhaps a slight i clina tion of the head. I observed Liim at the Maxwell house the other night. He ettne down from bis quarters into the reception hall, and walking through went out into the portico, and continuing on to the extieme end, and stood for some time alone in the darkness, evidently wrapped in thought—the brooding·*, doubtless, of his disappointed am bition. It is said tbat he has never been sat isfied with becoming President in the manner in which he did acquire that position, but de sires yet to reach the place by a popul ir vote. From the Detroit (Mich.) Advertiser. Not Dead, bot £leped. An aggravated case of domestic infelicity has just come to light in Detroit. The bus uanu, a ncn oacieior, married a beautiful Southern girl, and took her liome in 1869. Sbe soon in form id him that she m rried him only to escape the humiliation· of poverty, and they lived a cold and cheerless life until about a year aso, whea a former suitor of rhe lady appe ared, and again became devoted. A short t me since the woman was taken alarmingly ill, and the husband, being inloim ed that she had the small pox, was dispatch ed to bring her relatives fVoni Georgia. When he got to Nashville. Tenn., a telegram an nouncing her death recalled him, and he came back to be intor tied that Lis wife was buried the day atter she died. His condition was little sbo.t of madness then ; but when, a few days later,he found that the sicknea· and death had been a snare to get hitu out of the way, and cover the elopemem of his wife at d her lover he became a real maulac, and wa· confined in an asylum. Partially recovering, he was set at liberty, and was bent on leav ing the country, when he was informed that his w'fe and her paramour* were living In New York. He Is now trying to find them, and whether the search be successful or oth erwise, it will probaply result in a complete loss ot his reason. «■Sl'KLLANLOlM KOTICH.
