Aw EIGHTH 818 IK MAW.— Mr. Perrin
makes a communication to Nature in re
gard to the occasional occurrence of an
eighth true rib in man ; although it has
been generally considered that seven
form the absolute limit. This eighth rib
is sometimes fauud on one side
only, still more rr. ly on both tides,
and i*su£fmted by Mr. Perrin that cases
of this abnormal character possibly occur
more frequently than lias been suspected.
The maximum normal number of sternal
ribs appears to In? ten, but in the higher
primates the tenth, ninth, and eighth are
successively lost m the transition from
their lower to the higher forms. In the
earuivora the sternal ribs are usually
nine, although the Esquimaux dog, the
arctic wolf, and the weofefes have only
eight. Th common badger of Europe
has ten true ribs.

I would exempt front the latter qtiaHflea
tion the singular hero we describe, for
he added oourtiinea* to his other graces,
1 and has Ih-cu credited with uo little sue
oeaa with the fair.
Wrv early in life Allen was unlucky
enough to kill a mnn in Shelby County,
Kentucky. It is but tight to say that
the community it-gaoled hta set as one
lof self-defense, and that the jury, when
he was tried for murder, acquitted hiui
on that ground. The affair, neverthe
less, embittered him, and he soon after
started for Missouri. Subsequently,
with a single companion, he went clear
through the Indian Territory and thence
into Texas. War was then going on
with Mexico, and Allen plunged '"to it
with characteristic daring. He was with
Ham Houston at the battle of Sau Jaciu
to, w bieh ended the atrtgglc, and after
this returned home. For a time he be
came a farmer. Hut the bugle* sen
sang ou the bonk* of the Rio Grande,
and beginning came of that end which
saw Taylor the victor of many bloody
tlattice, and Heott dictating peace from
the -'halls of the Montesumaa." Allen
straightway raised u company of cavalry,
and, with a splendid tnuly of follower*,
helped Humphrey Marshall to out tlte
cnetuv to pie ea at Huetta Vista. At the
cud of the war, Col. Allen was ou his
oars, and quite at a loss whut to do.
Like many other of the wild spirity of
the South-west, he was too re*tl<-*a ami
fond of excitement for a life of were
agriculture or trade, and was soon cast
ing uuenaily at-out in annli >f adven
| ture. We And him accordingly, loon
niter the jience, raising a lnd of
Keutuckian*, and beeoming conspicuous
among the leaders of the cclebratc.l
'•first Cuban expedition." He got off
with his men from a Southern port, nhu
made his way to the ialut-d of Coutoy,
near the coast of Yueatnn. The theory
of this expedition wa* that the Culssa
Creoles, in great unmliers, wefe r. adv
to revolt, and would rise at once on the
alveut of the " filibusters" from the
Cuited States. But when, after three
weeks' stay at Cms tor, Allen sailed to
Cardenas, his rebel ailie* informed him
that his force was too tm dl to be effcctwal
and he had better go lmck again. Thi*
fCol. Allen would, doubtless quietly have
done. The Cuban authorities, however,
had other views, aud, advisetl of the
plans of the itiviulers, down upon
them with a heavy force. Allen here
pained uudeniable'laurcl*. He repnlswl
in handsome style every attack of a
greatly superior command, and, with
trifling loss, got away in safety. Ho
then sailed for Key \Y< st, and when with
in a few mile# of that plai-e, was attack

" In the railroad station at Holyhead,
on the Welsh Coast, I was witness to a
j scene painful to any one who believes ail
men are born free and equal. The m ill
service betwren Dublin and London,
only carries first and second-class pas
sengers. One of the spleicUd sen-going
boats that cross the Irish CbanueL took
ns safely, and, strange to wry, pleasantly
to Holyhead, where the train is *iunde

only the tint-class refreshment room was
open. Into this nearly all the passen
gers hurried for a sandwich, cup of coffee,
or a glass of wine, for we bad started on
our jonroey at six A. II. ; it was then
eleven o'clock, and we should not stop
anywhere for refreshments until we
reached the magnificent station and
pretty town of Crewe, at two r. M.
Among us there were three reapeeta
ble-looking bnt poorly clad members of
the working classes, who stepped Up to
the bar, askrd politely for a glass of ale,
and met witb a fiat refusal. The pert
and pretty barmaid answered that sh"
would be pleased to serve them, but It
was against the rules to deliver any
thing to workiugmen. They ex;>osiu
lated with her ; then applied to the pro
prietor of the restaurant ; remarked i
that they were ' hungry and thirsty " ;
said 'the third-class refreshment room ;
was not open,' nnd asked ' if their money
was not as good aa another people's ?' I
But argument was unavailing. The bar
maid was politefbut; firm her employer
supported her, and the workiugmen
left the room unrefreshed and dejected.
Hero were three honest-looking, sober,
well-behaved men, refused meat and
drink because they were not arrayed |n
purple and fine linen. An American
present proposed to obtain and convey
to the men outride the refreshment
room some ale and sandwiches ; but, be
fore tlie excellent idea could be carried

France gives the following rule for esti
mating the calorific effects of a given
sample of oil, which, although it makes
the theoretic amount a little larger than
that found in practice, is near enough to
ascertain the relative values of oils <f
fuel. First, the amount of carbon, hy

sample is found by analysis. Second,
subtract from the hydrogen one-eighth of
the oxygen, then multiply the difference
by 844.62, and ald to the product the

New York Post Orncr, —An ideaot
the immense amount of work that has
beeu done upon the New York Port
Office building, may be fonued from the
following statement of material* used,
aud lalxir expended to the present tune,
vix i 2,476,961 brick*, 13,701 lHirrel* of
cement, 144. 87 h-et of cube pranits.

and the magnitude of the undertaking

art- now engaged at Dix Inland 1.0H2 per
sons in tlo preparation of granite nhuic.
of whom 704 are employed in cutting
the granite for the government, and
in qtiariying the atork and otherwise for
the contractors. Three hundred and
twenty •ecveti thousand one hundred and
■dxty-nine aud one half dnya' lalor have
already Iweu rxieudcd in cutting and
boxing the granite after it has been
fpirfmed, and it fa estimated that 300,000
days' labor will be required to complete
that branch of the work. The first story
of the building ia yel a long way from
I'SKIXP Worn*.—Do the doctor*
know that half the wives in the world
die of thia complaint ? "Ho never
apoko nn unkind word to hia wife." Yea,
but did he remember, now and then, to
speak a kind one ? Did he have any
sympathy for her bodily or mental ails ?
Or was he blind and deaf fo both, treat
ing tbuui with cutting in difference, which
in time chills the most loving heart, aud
silences its throlva forever. Men are
verily guilty in tins regard. They take
a young girl from the warm atmosphere
of a loving, cheerful home; and after a
few brief weeks of devotion, leave her
to battle single-handed with new cares
