Mr. Louis Mt'Lane, of Delaware, was
Secretary of State, Franco seutueertalii
dashing minister to Washington, a
young man just elevated nbovo tho
grade of Charge, whoso passion was
display. Ilia outilt of equipage, grooms,
postillions and gold laco was magnifi

Monsieur lo Ministeur mistook as to
tho placo of calling. I lo thought ho wm
to call at tho President's mansion at 10
o'clock A. M. Accordingly, in full pa

with attendants, grooms, postillion?,
out-riders and iootmon, at the hour ap

fast as they could, and tho ilro was red
and tho ashes hot, and tho whole room
was so obfuscated that one could hardly

usual modo of sitting while smoking,
was with hi3 loft leg t hrowu across tho

tho right tendon-Achilles, and tho long

FRIDAY, JUNE 7,
Thorn aro In tho United Stales travel
lug through tho Summer season no loss
than forty-four different circus compa
nies. Tho fitting out of a first-class cir
cus, oxcluslvo or nny menagerie, costs
fully $100,000. Tho expenso of a now
tent, with poles, ropes, seats, lamps,
banners, cntranco curtain, is a llttlo
short or $5,000. Tho baggago wagons
rango In valuofrom $270 to $700. Tho
extra horses needed for them aro from
$G0O to $000 per pair, and tho great
golden chariot for musicians costs rrom
$1,500 to $2,000, and tho ring carpet for
tumbling costs from $200 to $500, ac
cording lo slzo and quality. Trick
horses rango rrom $1,000 to $3,000 in
value, pad horses rrom $1,200 to $2,200,
horseback act horses from $1,200 to
$2,200, trick ponies from $100 to $1,000,
and tho trick mules often coat $1,000.
FIrst'Clnss stock gymnasts nnd riders
recelvo from $77i to $100 per week nnd
tholr board or tho traveling season.
Firslchiss men and women riders recelvo
from $00 to $200 per week and tholr
board ; clowns rrom $00 to $100, and tho
mass or riders from S25 to $o0. Eques
trian stars rccoivo from $500 to $1,500
per month. Six to ton ncrobats, six
riders and half n dozen supernumera
ries, usually form tho complement of a
clreu, In addition to tho stars. Tho
dally expenses or such nn establishment
nro rrom $000 to $1000.
Acrobats nnd gymnasts begin their
education for tho ring at six or eight
years of ago, when their young limbs
nro pliable, and sometimes earlier, and
continuo their violent exorcises until
nearly fifty, when their mu?clc3 bo
como loo rigid ror tho work. It is n
mistake to suppose that circus men lead
dissipated nnd spendthrift lives. Tho
oxcrciso or their calling requires relax
ed sinows, a clear head, and n body In
completo health. A miscalculation, or
a railuro or strength during n leap,
might entail death. Thoy aro, thero
rore, very sparing, or entirely abstoml-,
ous, in tho use or strong liquors, and
very moderate in nny gratification of
senso whatever. Retired showmen
may bo round in many parts or tho
country and aro esteemed citizens.
Their mildness for horses naturally
leads them to a country life, whero they
can maintain their fiworites cheaply.
Tho amount-invested in tho mrly-rour
circuses and menagcrio3 is $2,500,000. A
town or 2000 inhabitants will requlro
about $200 rorndvanco po3tcrs,and largo
cities $500 to $1000. Circuses do not
travel during tho Winter in tho North
ern Slates. Thoy cither lay up until
tho Spring, and start upon their tours
from tho 1st or April to tho 10th or May,
or thoy travel in tho Southern States,
beirinnlntr tholr marches from tho 1st
to tho 10th of November. About ten
of the forly-rour proprietors aro wealthy
but the majority or them nro in tlio
hands or sheriffs from two to twenty
times during each season. Tho weather
is their greatest enemy, n rainy day
sotting them back badly.
A PVNNiNei correspondent or tho
New York Sun recently visited n ro-
malo seminary, nnd hero is his account
Tho bess fechool-inasler showed mo
round, and tho swectcht lot of lasses I
over saw wero those Ias-ses. Thoy beat
lasses candy. It was liko looking at a
great big patch of ripo strawberries, all
of 'era sweet, but hero and thcro ono of
'om a llttlo bigger thnn tho rest, and
somehow I liked tho biggest ono best.
I told tho boss that I didn't think this
could bo a good school.
Says ho: "Why?"
Said I : "Thoro nro too many misses
hero ror correct lessons."
Then ho called up a lovely girl in
green merino, with a yellow silk string
round her neck, and she stepped up to a
nlco clean blackboard nnd took a pleco
or chalk and daubed 11 nil up. Then
tho bof3 exclaimed: "What do you
think or that?"
I told him that any fool could mako
whito marks on to a blackboard with a
pleco of chalk. "Givo her a picco of
charcoal," says I, "and ir sho makes
them whito mnrks with that, then alio
will bo smart."
Then ho said it was rrom memory.
"Not" Fnid I, "you don't say that Is
rrom memory ; what in thunder is tho
thing anyhow ?" It lookr d liko a spo
cimcn or knl.somitiing.
"Why," said he, "that is tho map or
"Drawn by a minor," said I; "that
makes it Aeia Mi'jor."
Thon ho psked mu what I took it far,
and I told him I tool: It for a skating
pond. That ended tho geography les
son and wo went to mathematics. Tlio
boss told mo to givo 'cm n problem to
solve. I did, nnd 1 don't think they
havo solved It yet. I got up and I
"My dear young Indies, I proposo to
you tho following problem, nnd I'll
givo you ten minutes to stick your fin
gors In your cars, aud rock to and rro
to solve it: If it takes ono hundred
years for a hard shell clam to hop ono

how long will it tako n locomotlvo go

They couldn't ono or 'em do It. Ono
wanted to know how old tho clam was,
another whero tho destination ; In fact
they wauted mo to do tho sum for 'em,
nnd I got disgusted nnd left.

or several liniinpeachablo witnesses, es

up tho caso. But no ; ho was an obsti
onto follow, whom tho defendant's
counsel hud mado mad, and, moreover,
ho "had no uso for" tho defendant any
way, and arguo tho caso ho would.
Court adjourned till tho next morning.
Mcnnwhlle our attorney-general spent
n good portion or tho night In ransack
ing tho books for "bloody cases," moro
especially tho&u In which tho Judges
had Indulged in a vast deal or rhetoric
in their descriptions or tho horrible na
turo or tho crlmo or murder. Thoao
extracts ho read to tho Jury in his speech
tho next morning, quoting also rreely
from the Old Testament as to tho prop
er disposition to bo made of the mur-
dcrer, and closed up in a perfcet confla
gration or English adjectives In giving
his own notions as to the indescribable
heinousncss or tho crlmo or murder.
Tho Court then charged the jury briefly
who, after a fow moments' retirement,
brought in a verdict or "Guilty of mur
der in tho first degreo !" Of course a
now trial was granted. Defendant's
counsel, however, was nnturally curi
ous to know how tho Jury could havo
found that verdict, and so, walking up
to ono of tho most intelligent or tho
twelve, ho said to him, "How on earth
did you find that verdict ? on what ev
idence did you baso It?"
"Oh I" said tho Juryman; "thar
wa'n't nothing In tho evidence that
teched him ; but, you sco, the law wan so

At Louisville, Kentucky, last year,
tho canvasser for tho City Directory,
visited, among othor places, tho ofllco
or tho American Merchants' Union Ex
press Company,and mado n careftil nolo
of nil names and residences of the
clerks, officers' and attaches or tho com
pany as they wero given to him. In
tho list appeared tho following : "Ter
hune, Peter, with A. M. U. Ex. Co.,
bds. Louisvlilo Hotel." Tho namo or
tho ngent was to appear in largo letters,
tho extra chargo or ono dollar being
paid at tho time. In duo timo tho di
rectory appeared, with Peter Terhuno,
Esq., as tho agent or tho company, in
largo typo. Tho canvasser had, how-
o yer, mado a mistako in tho namo. Po-
ter was in reality an attache or tho of
ilco, but was a dog, belonging to ono of
tho clerks, who had given tho namo to
tho canvasser in fun. Strangers in tho
city, who havo business at tho office,
Invariably ask for Peter Terhuno, and
letters or all kinds on business or pri-
vato matters, como addressed to tho
dog, who, it Is reported, bears his blush
ing honors with great meekness.
Moue novelties aro tho result or ac-
cidont than is generally supposed. Tho
origin or blue-tinted paper camo about
by a mero slip or tlio hand. William
East, an English paper maker, onco up
on a timo set his men to work and went
away on business. Whllo tho men wcro
at dinner Mrs. East accidentally let a
bluo bag fall into ono or tho vats or
pulp. Alarmed at tho occurrence sho
determined to say nothing about It.
Great was tho oslonlshraont or tho
workmen when they saw tho peculiar
color of the papor, nnd great the ntiger
of Mr. East when ho returned and
found that a wholo vat or pulp had
been spoiled. After giving tho paper
mado from it warehoiiho room for four
year, Mr. East sent It up to lila ngent
In London to bo sold "for what It would
fotch." "For what It will fetch!" said
tho agent, misunderstanding tho mean
ing; "well it certainly Is n novelty, but
ho must not expect too much." So ho
sold tho whole at tm advance upon tho
market price, nud wroto to tho mills
for us much moro as ho could got. Tho
surprlso of Mr. East may bo imagined.
Ho hastened to his wire, who found
courage lo confess her share In tho for-
tuuato accident, and to claim n reward
which sho received in tho shape or n
now cloak. Mr. East kept his secret
for a short time, supplied tho markot
with tho novel tiut, until tho demand
Air exceeded tho supply, and other ma
kers discovering tho means used, com
peted with him.
A Sliout Mistake HY a Hunter,
This is what happened loaNorth Caro
lina 'coon hunter whllo "tho brilliant
November moon was riding In tho azuro
vault, affording her queenly light ." Ho
was out hunting in what aro termed tho
"low lands," when tho hoarsb Sotos of
his dog told him that tho varmint, what
ever It was, had takon to a treo. An
prouchlug, und not wishing to spend his
strongth In foiling tho tree, ho conclud
cd to climb It. No sooner said than
done; up ho went nud Just about tho
timo ho was making ioady to givo tho
"critter" a shako out, down tho aulmal
camo with a sudden rush, and avoiding
tlio dogs, reached another treo and en
sconced himself amid Its branches.
Nothing daunted, our hunter again pur.
sued him ; this timo ho obtained a clear
vlow of tho unknown, and camo to tho
conclusion that It was tho lilggce rac
coon that ovorhofauw. Again tho some
thing descended with fearful rapidity

Ono very sultry evening In tho dog
days. Gnrrlck performed tho part of
"Lear." In tho first four nets ho re
ceived tho accustomed trlbuto of ap
plause ; at tho conclusion of (ho fifth,
when ho wept ovor tho body of Cordelia,
every cyo caught tho soft Infection.
At this Interesting moment, lo tho
aslonishmout of all present, his face
assumed a now character, and his wholo
frame appeared agitated by a now pas
sion. It was not tragic, It was evident
ly nn endeavor to suppress a laugh.
In n fow seconds tho old attendant
nobles appeared lo bo nffuctcd In tho
samo manner, and tho beauteous Corde
lia who was lying extended on n crim
son couch, opening her oyes to sea what
occasioned the interruption, leaped from
her sofa, and with tho majesty or Eng.
laud tho gallant Albany, and tough old
Kent, ran laughing off tho stage.
Tho audlenco could not account for
thlj strango termination orn tragedy lu
any other way than by supposing that
tho dramalli pcrsontts wero seized with
a sudden fronzy ; but their risibility
had a different source
A rat Whltcchapcl butcher, seated in
tho centre or tho front bench or tho pit,
was accompauled by his mastiff, who,
being accustomed to sit on tho samo seal
with his master, nt home, naturally
supposed that ho might hero enjoy tho
samo privilege. Tho bulchcr sat very
far back ; and tho dog finding a fair
opening, got on tho seat, nnd fixing his
forepaws on tho rails or tho orchestra,
peered at tho performers wlthns upright
n hend nnd ns gravo nn air as tho most
sagacious critic or tho day.
Our corpulent slaughterman was
mado or melting stuff, and not being
accustomed to tho heat of a play-house,
found himself oppressed by a largo and
well-powdered Sunday periwig, which,
for tho gratification of cooling and wip
ing his head, ho pulled off and placed
on tho head oftho mastiff.
Tho dog, being lu so conspicuous a
situation, caught thooyoof Mr, Garrick
and the other performers. A mastiff in
a church-warden's wig was too much ;
it would havo proyoked laughter in
Lear hiraseir, at tho moment of hl3
deepest distress. No wonder then that
it had such an effect on his representa
tive. Anecdote of Tom Coewin. When
tho lato Tom Corwln was quite a young
man ho was olectcd a Member of tho
General Assembly of tho Stato of Ohio,
and early in tho session ho brought in
n bill for tho destruction or tho public
whipping post. Ho mado an earnest
speech in ravor or tho measure, to which
nn elderly member replied ns follows :
"Mr. Speaker, tho gentleman Is not so
old as I am, nnd has not seen as much
ol thepractical operation or tho system or

When I lived in Connecticut, if a follow

Mr. Corwin, who novcr railed to carry
his point by a Joko, ir tho argument was
against him, only mado a brief reply :
"Mr. Speakor, I havo ofton boen puzzled
to account for tho vast emigration from

say that Mr. Corwin's bill passed by an

hunter succeeded, just as tho cavornous
Jaws or tho beast touched his skirls, In
swinging upwnrds on n hospitable limb,
whero ho thought ho was secure, for a
time at least. Tho bear, baffled lu his
onset, adopted a Fabian policy, grimly
wultod, sitting on his haunches, in
vicious contemplation for tho moment
when his victim should descend. Bears
liko mortals loso patience, and when
llio hunter was attempting to climb
higher, tho bruto was enabled to eoIzo
ono leg aud tore tho foot almost entirely
off. Tho wretched man rendered al
most frautlo with pain, thrust ono foot
in a hollow placo 111 tho tree, and' seiz
ing his knife, mado a strike at theC bear's
head. Tho bear with ono vigorous
sweep or his paw, struck tho weapon
from tho man's hand; for n moment
tho poor wrotch gavo up for lost, but
suddenly ho remembered that his pocket
was filled with salt, which ho had In
tended for Bhcop. At onco salt was
his safely. As the bear thrust his head
up, a handful or salt was dropped
tquaroly into his wicked oyes, and wilh
howls or pain ho foil scraping nnd claw
ing tho ground. Dealing this out in
homeopathic system at each onsot or

tho next day, tho people, alarmed by
his long absence, searched tho woods
and rescued him from his perilous posi

a gontlcmon of indolent habits, In Sus

season of visiting his friends oxtcmlvo

own immediate vicinity, ho thought ho
would visit an old Quaker friend, somo
twenty miles distant, who had been a
schoolfellow of his. On his arrival ho
was cordially recoived by tho Quaker,
ho thinking his visitor had taken much
pains to como so far to seo him. Ho
treated his friond with great uttontion
and politeness for several days, and, as
ho did not see any sign3 or his leaving,
ho becamo uneasy, but ho bore It with
patienco till tho morning or the eighth
day, when ho said to him
"My friend, I am afraid theo will
uovor visit mo again."
"Oh yes, I shall," said tho vHtor;
"I havoonjoyed my visit very much;
I shall cortainly como again."
"Nay," Baid tho Quaker, "1 think
