The speculiishcn in wool, into wieh the Diniocmy uv the South rmharkt come months ago, hez, I regret to say, resulted disastrously. The nigger ain't fitted for eo-opcras)ien with the Dim oerisy. Instill uv linugin on to us like the ivy onto the oak, he diskivcred that, in the South at least, he was really the oak and we the ivy; itistid uv lookiu up to us, he contracted a disa greeable habit uv look in down onto lis. Thero wuz other reasons why he coodent be made available for our uses, and therefore it was decided to go back onto the Afrikin, and to agin attempt his roduck.shen to as near his normal specrez the abnormal coiulishn uv the times wood admit. The direc ters uv the college met and changed the name uv the Instistooshn back to the "Southern Military 'nnd Claseikle Institoot," and the Corners wuz itself agin.

Ejs I took my scat and wuz a wipin the pcrspirashen from my class iklcbrow, feelin that I lied settled that question, Pollock riz and desired to say a lew words and make a sugges tion. Sed he : "I hev listened with interest to the cfokent snooker and am happy to say I hev learned fax wieh is new to nte.

"But I want it demonstrated to the satisfackshen-uv the most obtoose I want rite here a measurement uv the average Afrikin and the average white man, that all the world may know the difference.

Filially Joe- Bigler sed he saw Napo leon Johnson, a nigger wieh wunst bc lomred to Deekin Pop-ram, in the au dience.

Napoleon, nothin dasht, stept tip, and Pollock, Baseom, Bigler and I measured him with the followin re sult : Height 5 feet 8 inches. Weight 1")0 lbs. nverdupoise. Length uv foot 12 inches.

To those who are accustom ed, not necessarily from ba I motives, but from tliotiglitlcn-iitcss, to speak light ly of ladies, we recommend these "hints" as worthy of consideration : Never use a lady's name in an im proper place, at an improper time, or in a mixed company. ..Never make assertions about her that vou think un true, or allusions that you feel she herself would blush to hoar. When vou meet with men who do not scruple to make use of a woman s name in a reckless and unprincipled manner, shun them, for they arc the very worst mom bcrs of the community men lost to every sense of honor, every feeling of humanity. Many a good and worthy woman's haractcr has leen lorever ruined and her heart broken bv a lie manufactur ed by somevillian, and repeated where it should not have been, and m the presence of those whose little judgment could not deter them from circulating tho foul and brajryrinii report, A shin ier is soon propagated, and the smallest thing derogatory to a woman's charac ter will fly on the wings of the wind, and magnify as it circulates, until its monstrous weight crushes the poor un conscious victim.

Ripe and mellow apples fed careful ly to cows, will produce an extra se cretion ot milk, tweet apples arc doubtless preferable for this purpose to sour ; yet the latter, when not too acid, are a valuable feed, and should be given in small quantities as long as they can be preserved sound and free from rot. To apply the produce of the orchard in this way w much more economical than to make it into cider, which, as a beverage to be drunk com monly, cither at meals or other times, often produces very unpleasant conse quences, but rarely, it ever, docs much good.

On making in ouiries. wo learned from Chief Con stable Harrison the following facts, as given by Messrs. Moore and Dood, constables lrom .Lima s "A woman named Gibson, living near Towbrulge, had lately received a sum of money from her husband, who resides in tho States. A his, ot course, became noised abroad among tho neigh- rs. On Saturday evening last four men entered the house in her absence, but not being able to find anything, In the cvemncr the same parties came again ; tins time Airs, Uibsou was at home. On their demanding admission she refused, as the children had told her of the previous occurrence. 1 hey then attempted to force their way in. Airs. Liibson warned them to desist, at the same time threatening to shoot : but they still persisted, when she fired tho gun and shot the foremost in the face ; the others withdrew for a while with their companion, but short ly returned to the house, antl burst the wiridow open. The brave woman seized an ax and buried it in tho skull of the man who was attempting to limb through the window. The other two immediately decamped, taking their wounded companions with them. Ihc alarm was not given till morn ing, when the neighbors turned out nnd followed tho tracks, which were easily list-inguished by the pools of blood which lay along the road ; but it was found tho parties had got into a con veyance and drove oil". Up to going to press we have not learned that any were captured, It is almost certain that one of the ruffians was killed, and the one that was shot must have been severely wounded, as the woman saw them carry him away m-loro returning to their second attack. The W nitca of Women. The custom from time immemorial seems to have been to pay a woman , ., i. i 1 1 less tnan a man ior doing tno same work. Doubtless this relic of other iigcs arose from tho fact that work as signed to women in other tunes was oi a less skilllul character than that of men, because mechanical pursuits were not so varied, and, with some few ex ceptions, arc unfit avocations, on uc count ot want of strength, lor the weaker sex. Sedentary employments, lighter and better suited to their pow ers, aro jewer ana promiuiy not so profitable, and in consequence v.'n have had foisted upon our better civiliza tion, and more varied demands for labor, a system evidently iimitst and partial, because the standards of com pensation in labor should be skill and industry; partial, because it makes a listinction for which there is no loun lation but that of false custom, It is time we were standing out of our own light in this matter, else the time may come, even in prosperous America, when subsistence, not competence, will bo the only object attainable hymen or women ; because gradually women will bo employed at the low rate of compensation, and men will bo obliged to starve or work tor the same reiinin oration. Another light in which wc may look at this matter, and an im portant one, is its bad tendencies. Morality demaiKU that wc shall not, by our abominable stickling for the customs of the past, force women to resort to lives ot degradation, as wc arc doing now, in order to escape lrom tho clutches of starvation. Justice, interest and morality demand that the skilled lalwr of women should receive the same reward as that of men. niaeaaea Produced by Mlceping Toethrr. During the night there is consider able exhalation from our bodies, and at tho same timo wc absorb a large quantity of the vapors of the surroun ding air. Two healthy young chil dren sleeping together will give and recieve healthy exhalations; but an old, weak person near a child will, in exchange for health, only return weak ncss. A sick mother near her daugh ter communicates sickly emanations to her; if the mother has a cough of long duration, the daughter will at sonic time also cough and sutler by it; if the mother has pfumonary consump tion, it will be ultimately communi cated to her child. It is kuown that the bed of a consumptive is a power ful and sure source of contagion, as well for men as for women, nnd the more so for young persons. Parents and fricntls ought to oppose as much as is in their power the sleeping together of old and voung persons, ot tho sick and of tho healthy. Another reason ought to forbid every mother or nurse keeping small children with them in bed Notwithstanding the advice of prudence, no year passes that we do not hear of a new involuntary infan ticide. A body full of life, health and vigor in the evening is found dead the pext morning, suffocated by its parents or nurse.
