both branches of Congress as taken down by reporters,
equal, at least, to ally corps of 'short-hand writer, in this,

be able to report, verbatim, ten thousand words an hour,
while the average number of words spoken by II 'tent
sp:iikers rarely exceeds seven thousand five hundred
wolf:, an hour. When the debates of a day do not make
more than forty-five columns. they will appear in The

royal sheet, in book fortu, royal quarto :ice, each number
coataining sixteen pages. Thc whole will make, it is be
at least 2.000 pages. This is acktowledged to be
the cheapest work ever sold in any country. wheiltot a re

Camp Scott thare was a lot of T.T. S. sojers,
hosstensibly sent out there to jine the. Mor•

games. I got acquainted with sum of the of
ficers. They look putty scrumshus in their
8100 coats with buttings onto um & ware
very talented drinkers, but so far as fittin is
consarned Ide willingly put my wax fingers
agin the hull party.
My desire was to exhibit my grate show at
Salt Lake City, so I called on Brigham Young,
the grate mogul amung the inormins axed
his permishun, to pitch my tent and onful my
banner to the jentle breezis. He looked at
me in a austcer manner fur a few minits &
"Du you bleeve in Solomon, Saint Paul,
the immaculateness of the Mormin Church,
and the Latter day Revelashuns ?"
Sez I, " .T.rne on it 1" I make it a pint to git

sed I mite show.
" You air a marrid man Mister Young, I

"1 hey eighty wives, Mister Ward, I ser

" How du you like it as fur as you hey

He sed "middlin," and axed me wouldn't

that I wouldn't mind minglin with the fair

interestin wives.
He accordingly tuk me to his Scarenm.—
The house is powerful big & in a exceeding
large room was his wives and children, which

" Which ?" sez I gittiu up & starein at
" Sealed, Sir, sealed."
" Whare bowts ?" sez I.
"I sed, Sir, that they was sealed !" He
spoke in a traggerdy voice.
"Will they probly continue in that stile to

" Sir," said he, turnin as red as a biled

In a private convershun with Brigham I
lernt the follerin fax: It takes him six weeks
to kiss his wives. He don't du it only once a

don't pretend to know his children, thar is so

times when he went in swimmin theyed go
to the banks of the Lake and steal all his

by a scircootius rowt, dresst in the Skander
lus stile of the Greek Slaiv. "I find that the
keel's of marrid life way bevy onto me," sed
the Profit, " sumtimes I wish Iclc remained
single." I left the Profit and started for the
tavern whar I put up to. On my way I was
overtuk by a large crowd of Mormins, when
they surrounded me an statid they was goin

Ballet mentions one hundred and sixty
three children endowed with extraordinary
talents, among whom few arrived at an ad
vanced age. The two sons of Quintillian so
vaunted by their father, did not reach their
tenth year. Eermogenes, who at the age of
fifteen, taught rhetoric to Marcus Aurelius,
who triumphed- over the most celebrated
rhetoricians of Greece, did not die, but at
twenty-four lost his faculties, and forgot all
he had previously acquired. Pica di Miran
dola, died at thirty-two ; Johannes Srcundus
at twenty-five, having at the age of fifteen
composed admirable Greek and Latin verses,
and become profoundly versed in jurispru
dence and letters. Pascal, whose genius de
veloped itself at ten years old, did not attain
the third of a century. In 1791 a child was
born at Lubeck, named Henri Hoinneken,
whose - precocity was miraculous. At ten
months he spoke distinctly, at twelve learned
the Pentateuch by rote, and at fourteen
months was perfectly acquainted with the
Old and New Testaments. At two years he
was as familiar with ancient history as the
most erudite authors of antiquity. Sausson
and Danville only could compete with him in
geographical knowledge. In the ancient and
modern languages he was proficient. This
wonderful child was unfortunately carried
off in his fourth year.

~ . ►A
Let us first sketeh the story of a Jinn's life
—beginning with his marriage, which takes
place towards the end of January. Ile was
first to seek his wife ; but as the males are
far more abundant than the females, who are
often cut off in infancy, it is not rare to find
a young lady pestered with the addresses of
three or four gallants, who quarrel with the
acerbity of jealous lovers. If one of them
does not succeed in disabling or driving away
the others, madam, impatient and dissatis
fied, leads them into the presence of an old
lion whose roar she has appreciated at a dis
tance. The lovers fly to him with the temer
ity of youth and exasperation. The old fel
low receives them with calm assurance,
breaks the neck of the first with his terrible
jaws, smashes the leg of' the second, and tears
out the eye of the third. No sooner is the
day won and the field clear, than the lion tos
ses his mane in the air as ho roars, and then
crouches by the side of his lady, who, as a
reward for his courage, licks his wounds ca
When two adult lions are the rivals, the
encounter is more serious. An Arab perched
in a tree one night, saw a lioness followed by
a tawny lion, with full-grown mane ; she lay
down at the foot of the tree—the lion stopped
on his path and seemed to listen. The Arab
then heard the distant growling of a lion,
which was instantly replied to by the lioness
under the tree. This made her husband roar
furiously. The distant lion was heard ap
proaching, and as he came nearer the lioness
roared louder, which seemed to agitate her
husband, for he marched toward her as if to
force her to be quiet, end then sprang back
to his old post, roaring defiance at his distant
rival. This continued for about an hour,
when a black lion made his appearance on
the plain. The lioness arose as if to go to
wards him ; but her husband, guessing her
intention, bounded towards his rival. The
two crouched and sprung upon each other,
rolling on the grass in the embrace of death.
Their bones cracked, their flesh was torn,
their cries of rage and agony rent the air, and
all this time the lioness crouched and wagged
her tail slowly in signs of satisfaction. When
the combat ended, and both warriors were
stretched on the plain, she arose, smelt them,
satisfied herself that they were dead, and
trotted off, quite regardless of the uncompli
mentary epithet.
This, Gerard tells us, is an example of the
conjugal fidelity of milady ; whereas the lion
never quits his wife unless forced, and is
quite a pattern of conjugal attention.— West-
Mi2lSter Review.

Laws of this nature, intended to interfere
with the proper enforcement of the Fugitive
Slave Law, have been passed by the legisla
tures of several of the Northern States. They
should never 'have been passed, and they
should, in good faith to the Constitution of
the United States and the Laws of Congress,
as well as in justice to the South,be repealed.
We say this without reference to the present
rebellious position of the South—which, in
our judgment, is without justification—on
the ground that the acts themselves are
wrong, and *therefore should not be permitted
to remain on the statute books. An of this
character—not exactly a personal liberty
bill, but nearly as objectionable—was passed
by.ourown Legislature in 1847, which we
trust the next legislature will wipe out. The
South have a constitutional right to reclaim,
without hindrance on our part, thin slaves
who escape from them and come into this
State. They are fugitives from labor—their
masters have a right to their services, and no
good citizen would encourage or harbor them;
nor would any legislative body, mindful of
the oath they take to 4 ` support the Constitu
tion of the United States," throw legal ob
stacles in the way of their recovery. Such
laws, we cannot but think, are all the offspring
of excitement, and we will not permit our
selves to doubt that the error committed by
the legislature of this State in 1847, will be
corrected by the legislature of 1861. Let us,
as far as we have it in our power, take from
the South all reasonable grounds or dissatis
isfaction ; and then, if still yielding to the im
pulse of passion, or conjuring up imaginary
grievances either present or prospective, she
persists in her unpatriotic course, and precip
tates revolution, we shall feel free from blame,
and be better prepared to meet the dreadful
issue with sternness, and determination. All
grievances removed, let the choice rest with
them whether they will be friends and at
peace, or enemies, and at war with us.—Har

The Scientific Anzerzean,in noticing a new
patent bier, for lowering coffins into graves,
indulges in the following strain in reference
to patents:—" The life of this stage most as
suredly, moves on patent invents Ons. For in
instance. The infant is wrapped in linen
woven on a patent frame, and he draws his
first drop of nourishment from his mother's
breast through a patent nipple shield. The
girl fondles a doll, the boy whirls a patent
top, or plays with a ball which is made un
der one of the cost valuable patents of the
age. In later life we put on a French yoke
shirt, which with the rest of our clothes, is
sewed on a patent machine, with a patent
thread, with a patent needle, which comes
enveloped in a patent wrapper; and our very
boots are made of patent leather. We rise
in the morning from a patent eliptic spring
bed, undo the patent fastenings of our win
dows, roll up our patent curtains, open the
patent locks of our doors, which were con
structed by patent machinery, and go down
to our coffee, which is made in a patent old
" Dominion" coffee pot. We write with one
of Morton's patent pens, which we dip into
our patent ink-stand. Thus surrounded by
patents; we pass our life, which is filled with
gorgeous dreams of making a splendid for
tune by some patent invention of our own,
till we are placed in a patent burial ease,and
lowered from a patent bier into our final place
of rest."

For twenty-three years, old Jake Willard
has cultivated the soil of Baldwin county, and
drawn therefrom a support for self and wife.
He is childless. Nut long ago Jake 'left the
louse in search of a missing cow. His route
led him through an old worn-out patch of clay
of about six acres in extent, in the cen
ter of which was a well, twenty-live or thirty
feet deep, that at sonic time probably, had
furnished the inmates of a dilapidated house
near by with water. In passing by this spot,
an ill wind lifted Jake's " tile" from his head,
and maliciously wafted it to the edge of the
well, aid in it tumbled.
Now Jake had always practised the virtue
of economy, and he immediately set about re
covering the lost hat. He ran to the well,
and finding it was dry at the bottom, he un
coiled the rope which be had brought for the
purpose of capturing the truant cow, and
after several attempts to catch the hat with
a noose, he concluded to save time by going
down into the well himself. To accomplish
this, he made fast one end of the rope to a
stump hard by, and was quickly on his way
down the well.
It is a fact of which Joke was no less obliv
ious than the reader hereof, that Ned Wells
was in the old dilapidated building aforesaid,
and that an old blind horse with a bell on his
neck, who had been turned out to die, was
lazily grazing within a short distance of the
NO. '2 4 .
The devil, Limself, or some other wicked
spirit put it into Ned's cranium to have a lit
tle fun, so he quietly slipped up to the horse,
and unbuckled the bell strap, approached
with slow measured " ting,-a-ling' the edge
of the well.
" G—d clang that old blind horse !" said
Jake, " he's a-coining this way sure, and ain't
got no more sense than to fall in here. Whoa,
"But the continued approach of the ting-u
-ling, said just as plain as words that Ball
wouldn't wkoa. Beside Jake was at the bot
tom, resting, before trying to shin' it up the
"Great Jerusalem !" said he, "the old cuss
will be a-top 01' me before I can say Jack Rub
inson. " - Whoa, G—d clang you, whoa."
Just then, Ned drew up to the edge of the
well, and with his foot kicked a little dirt into.
" Oh, Lord," exclaimed Jake, falling upon
his knees at the bottom, " I'm gone now,
whoa. Now I lay me dawn to sleep—whoa
I pray the Lord my soul tu—w•h-u-a
now. Oh I Lord have nicrey on me,
Ned could hold in no longer, and fearful
Jake might suffer from. his fright, revealed.
Probably Ned didn't makc,‘ tracks with his
heels from that well. Maybe Jake wasn't up
to the top of it in short order, and you might
think he didn't try every night for two weeks
to get a shot with his rifle. Maybe not. I
don't know. But Ido know that ifJake finds
out who sent you this, it will be the last squib ,
you'll get.
A cat mania is a singular thing; yet it ex
isted in Mrs. Griggs, of Southampton Row,
London, who died on the ltith of January,
1792. ller executors found in her house
eighty-six living, and twenty-eight dead cats
Their owner, who died worth 5150,000, left
her black servant ,5750 per annum for the
maintenance of the surviving cats and himself.
Popo records an instance of a famous Duchess
Of It—, who bequeathed considerable lega
cies and annuities to her cats. In the Arcycnte.
Crarai:`e there L ay be found a recortl of a
famous lawsuit, relating to a cat of Madame
de Puis, a celebrated performer on the harp.
This lady's will, in favor of the cat made a
great noise at the time. It settled a large
pension upon her, and directed that so many
visits should be paid her every week. In the
suit carried on to set the will aside, MM.
\Veaurier and Vautier, celebrated lawyers,
were engaged to sustain it, while M. de Perri
ers, equally famous, was retained on the oppo
site interest. But it, of the gentler sex, there
are those "who cradle the blind offspring of'
their Se limas, and adorn the pensive mother's
neck with coral beads," some also of the re
markable among our s:erner race have shown
an extraordinary fondnes3 fur these luxurious
quadrupeds. Moliammed,for instance, had a
cat to which he was so much attached that he
preferred cutting off" the sleeve of his garment
to disturbing her repose, when she had fallen
asleep upon it. Tetrarch was so fond of the
cat that he had it embalmed after death and
placed in a niche in his apartment. Dr.
Johnson had a feline favorite, and when it
was ill, declining its usual food, but greedily
seizing an oyster when it was offered, he was
accustomed to bring home for her daily some
of these tempting molluscs. Mr. Peter King,
who died at Islington in 1803, had two Tom
cats, that used to set up at table with him at
his meals, and, as he was a great admirer of
fine clothes, richly laced, he thought his cats
might like them too. The grimalkins were
accordingly measured, and wore rich liveries
until Lath.
I have noticed that a married man falling
into misfortune is more apt to retrieve his
situation in the world than a single ono,
chiefly because his spirits are soothed and re
lieved by domestic endearments, and self-re
spect, kept alive by finding that, although
abroad may be darkness and humiliation yet
there is still a little world of' love at home, of
which he is monarch. Whereas, a single
man is apt to run to waste and self-neglect ;
to fall to ruin like sonic deserted. mansion fur
want of inhabitants. I have often,had occa
sion to remark the fortitude with which wo
men sustain the most overwhelming reverse
of fortune, Those disasters which break
down the spirit of man, and prostrate him in
the dust, seem to call forth all the energies of
the other sex, and give such intrepidity and
elevation to their character -that at times it
approaches to sublimity. Nothing can be
more touching than to behold a soft and ten
der female, who had been all weakness and
dependence, and alive to every trivial rough
ness, while treading the prosperous path,
suddenly rising in mental force to be the
comforter and supporter of her husband under
misfortunes, abiding with unshrinking firm
ness the bitterest blasts of adversity.
As the vine which has long twined its
graceful foliage about the oak, and has been
lifted by his sunshine, will, when the hardy
plant is rifted by the thunderbolt, cling
around it with its caressing tendrils, and bind
up its shattered brow, so, too, it is beautifully
ordained by Providence, that woman, who is
the ornament and dependent of man in his
happier hours, should be his stay and solace
when smitten with dire and sudden calamity,
winding herself into the rugged recesses of
his nature, tenderly supporting his drooping
head, and binding up the broken heart.—
