Biding oh the Cow-Catcher.—
Since Willis’ description of his cow-catcher
exploit on the Baltimore and Ohio Bail
road, many fool-hardy passengers have
solicited the conductors da that great
thoroughfare to allow them to try the sensa~
tion. A day or two since, a lady and
gentlemen insisted upon taking a jaunt on
the cow-catcher of ; a train coming jrest. —
Their request wap granted at last, and the
train being slightly behind time, they
were carried along in this unprotected
Way at the rate of fifty nrles an hour. —
lichen relieved from their position, they
. .could not have been pursuaded to try the
1 sensation a second time. The train bad
not gone two miles further, when the pilot
struck a : (Sow and’ shouldered it. If the
'passengers had continued to occupy their
popdtion,they must hare been killed.
JSgr The latest advices from Europe
-state that Prussia is continuing her mili

She has not only armed her flying artil

Jrhole artillery on foot with twelve-pound
ers, hut is going sow to raise her infantry
of the line from sixty-four to one hundred
regiments, which will increase her field
-army to about four hundred and fifty
thousand; not including the “ Landwehr”
of the Second levy, which is destined ex
cluaiVcly for garrisoning the twenty-eight
Prussian fortresses. Prussia, like- Eng
land does not seem to have any extraor

Blondin’s Latest Feat.
Blondih; has given another exhibition on the
rope at Niagara, which exceeds in daring any
thing that he has yei attemped. After first
crossing to the Canada side, laden with fetters,
be Started back with a cook stove swung on bis
back, the culinary appurtenances thereto, con
sisting of; saucepan, ladle, sundry dishes, and
a pair 6t bellows securely fastened upon the.
stove. It must not be imagined that the stove
he bore upon bis back was a full-sized cast iron
“Victor,” neither must it be fancied a minia
ture affair—a disguised spirit-lamp chafing dish.
It was a goodly sized, properly-fashioned cook
ing stovd,; made of Russia sheet iron, and boost
ing of a fcmoko-pipc about two feet in height.—
Arrived jut the centre of the rope Blondin se
cured his pole and proceeded with nonchalance
to .make 'preparations for “camping.” Un
slinging his stove be placed it upon the rope be
fore him, sat down, and with some pitebey,
combustible material built bis fire, exciting it
with the bellows, and soon raising a smoke
winch proved the genuineness of the prepara
tions for. cooking. When a proper degree of
heat had been attained, he produced his eggs,
broke them into his dish and threw the shells
into the; river. The omelet was prepared with
all the skill of a chef de cuisine, and when it was
complete he lowered it to the deck of the Maid
of j \ht Miit , where, we doubt not, it was divided
info the ' smallest possible shares, and eagerly
treasured by the passengers. Gathering up his
“hotel,” Blondin re-adjusted it upon his back,
and quickly landed himself and it npon the
American shore, amid the loud cheers of the
Branding Flour.— The editor of the New
York Examiner has been sojourning in Roches
ter, where he visited one of tile large flour mills,
and was initiated into the mysteries of branding
flour, lie says:—“Branding to us poor outsi
ders baa been a source of a good deal of mys
tery. Ip pur simplicity, we have supposed that
a brand was a true indication of the place where
the flour was ground and the wheat it Was made
from. But this- is an egregious error. There
arp tricks in all trades but ours. Only the
very best flour is labeled by the name of the
mill, where it is ground. Inferior flour is
branded Corinthian Mill, New Mill, or some
other mill that is owned by the man of the
moon. ‘All/these practices - are known in the
coni exchange as. well as the mills, bat to us
poPr consumers, who buy a barrel of flour once
a quarter, it may not be uninteresting to know
that all the best family flour is branded doable
extra superfine, with the real name of the mill
and- manufacturer. Genessee flour is as übi
quitous os Orange county milk, Goshen bntter,
or "relics of the ship Constitution among the
curious. ' Genessee flour is for the most part
made from Western or Canada wheat/

thje Scientific Association, gave an account of

where the observers of the Institute are station

Christian men Sometimes fel| terribly foal of
Saeh other,- like th 4 two English ships which
broadsided each other for hours in a mist with- _
out knowing that the British 4*B was flying at
their mastheads. The laxy man was one of the
i biggest sinners on earth ; if he;, did nothing else,
he broke one, of God’s greatest commandments.
I There was a very strict Sabbatarian gardener,
, who was very hard upon his'maater about the
observance of the Sabbath. His master said to
him, “Why, you break the commandments
yourself." “Howt” said* too gardener, “I
don’t work ou t Sunday.’* “ No," quoth the
master, “ nor any other day.! Just repeat the
commandment." The gardener obeyed, and
when he came to “ six days shalt thou labor
and do all that thou hast to do,” his master
said, “There, stop -there ;• that is as much a
part of the commandment as that the “ seventh
day is the Sabbath.’ ” The' stickling for secta
rian distinctions was as absurd as if a hungry
man about to eat some bread were told by a
Churchman, “No bread like the tin loaf, ’ or
by a Methodist, “ You must eat twists." The
hungry man would say, “ Giye me some bread,
and I will settle the shape afterwards.” It-jars
somehow upon the feelings to see the copious
reports which the country papers give of Mr.
Spurgeon’s “sermon*,” copiously interlarded
with “laughter." '
A Man Killed bt a Roostkb.— About three
weeks since, Henry Black, of this place, under
took to sever the bead of a hen, when he was
attacked by a rooster, which spured Mr. Black
on the hand ipto an artery. The wound being
deemed very slight, was not noticed until it be
came painful, when healing remedies were im
mediately applied. The was healed, or
partly so, and Mr. B. considered himself able
to resume his labors again. On the 13th last.,
while Mr. B. was iu company with one or two
citizens, he was suddenly "attacked with intense
pain, accompanied by a sickening sensation at
the heart, and he would have fallen, but for the
timely aid rendered 1 him by the citizens, who
supported him to his home, where a scene of
suffering commenced that it were impossible to
describe. He continued to grow worse until
the Tuesday following, when his pain became
so great that his shrieks were heard at the dis
tance of 400 yards. At this date a remarkable
occurrence took place, which; though to the
general reader may appear incredible, is fully
verified by many who went to witness it. He
drew his entire frame together as though to gain
strength for the act, and his voice broke forth
like the crowing of a rooster. This was re
peated from time to time, and such was the
similarity of voices that outside listeners, (fur
all couldn’t gain admissionJi asserted their be
lief that it was a rooster. TJuring Mr. B's ill
ness he had the best medical attendance, but
withal the sufferer seemed destined to die from
the effects of what was at first considered a
trifle. After four days of indescribable suffer
ing he died on Thursday last. Mr. Black leaves
a widow and four children to mourn his death.

A Living Head on a Dead Body.— Mr. Ar
chibald Campbell, a respectable farmer in the
township of Camden East, while engaged in fin
ishing a dwelling on his premesis, the scaffold
gave way, and he was precipitated head fore
most to the ground, and dislocated his neck ;
but very fortunately and mysteriously did not
kill him. When his head was brought to its
proper position, the vertibrse of the neck re
turned to their place with a dull but distinct
snap. The whole body is paralyzed and dead
from the neck downwards.—He is not capable
of moving a muscle or experiencing the slightest
pain Fortunately the nerves supplying tl>c
muscles used in respiration were not paralyzed,
and he can breathe and lire; had the injury of
the spinal cord been a little higher, he would
have died immediately. The sense of sight,
bearing, smelling, &c., arc normal, and his in
tellect is unimpaired. When last heard from,
however, there were some indications of a re
turn of sensation and the power of motion, and
it is just possible that Mr. Campbell may par
tially recover.— Newburgh ( C. W.) Index.
Singular Disease. —The Gloucester (Mass.)
Telegraph says that an unusual case of sickness
is now in the hands of Dr. Haskell, of Rockport
A boy, about five years of age, a son of Mr.
Eben Knowlton, has contacted the disease of
glanders by climbing in the stall where a horse
affected with tne disease had been kept, although
it was not knoiyn at the time that the horse
was affected. Cases of this kind are very rare,
and most generally prove fatal. The present
case is a very severe one, and will probably Inn e
a similar result.
The Louisville Journal is advocating the
construction of a railroad bridge across the

Ah Evidence or Hard Times. —One night

Church, on Beaver creek, in this county, was
removed, and the coin deposited therein at the
time of the erection of the building, amounting

record, and gives indubitable evidence of hard
