A PIiOTAO
J0ger,141414.
! I was down at Old Castle, Delaware, last
week, and Mr. and Mrti.'" Wilkins occupied the
room in the hotel next to mine. They talked
;very loud, and as I could not sleep, there was
••• nothing for n3e'• to :do' lnit•lie EitilVand listen.
This is about what took place :
"I tell you, Mrs. Wilkins, you've got to put
a OtoP to , ; wan% baseit: •This thingf. has
been" going on: long' enough,' ild it's about
played out. Ilere you've been going to that
gymnasium now. nigh nearly six months, and
you're getting to ,be a perfect she-Sampson ;
you're getting more muscle than any woman
who moves in good society's got any right to
have. I don't want to be married, to . an Ama
zon, I tell you; I don't want my wife to be
going about trying how many fifty-siX pound
weights she can lift ; I don't want to be tied
to a woman who hits from the shoulder, do I?
and who can knock an ox down with her fist,
and smash a door panel with one blow ? Not
much I don't, and I say I won't have it."
"But, Mr. Wilk—"'
~tOh, there's no use of talking, for it's got to
be stopped. Ain't you ashamed of yourself,
and you a mother of nine children, to be dress
ing yourself up in Bloomer costrune and
showing your thick ankles-,".
"Mr., Wilkins, you !"=
"Shoiving your clumsy ankles—you needn't
get mad. for they are thick, and you latow it—
and swinging dumb bells and sticks, and
dubs, trying to dislocate your arms, so as to
give me another doctor's bill to pay, and re
duce me to bankruptcy; 'sue for a divorce,
I will, by George, if it is'nt stopped ; • I won't
put up with it any longer; if I do, hang me."
"Mr. Wilkins, do stop swearing."
"I tell you it ain't respectable for you to go
to that gymnasium, and let that teacher put his
arm around you all the time he is pretending
to show you how to move your elbows."
"Mr. Wilkins, this is scan—" •
"To move your elbows, and then for you to
come home and then begin exercising yourself
on the joists in the garret, pulling yourself up
'to see how many times you can touch your
chin. In my opinion you'd better be down
stairs practising with a bar of soap and a wash
board—a good deal better than doing that, or
'going `out into the yard and trying to balance a
clothes prop on your chin."
"Why, M-i-s-t-e-r Wilkins, I never—"
"Don't Mister Wilkins me• ' you can't say you
never did it, for I know you did. Didn't I see
you the other day while I was at the back par
lor window ? You'd better say next that you
never tried to catch the dining-room chairs by
the rounds and hold them out at arm's length ?"
"Of course I never d—"
"But I know you did, though, and I tell
you lam sick of it. I don't want to lire all
my life with a woman who can whip me. I
expect you'll he practising on me next—l ex
pect nothing else than you'll be trying to see if
you can throw me. But .I don't want to have.
anything to do with you. If you come wrestling
around me you'll get hurt. i give you fair
warring,; I won't stand any of your nonsense."
"Mr. Wilkins, I declare you're too bad, for—"
"I know I am ; I know I don't suit you; I
know you wish you,were married to another
man. You'd like me to haVe a plug muss
ith you every day, and have me try to beat
you at lifting, and get me to go around this
community and brag on your muscle. But I
ain't proud of you; I'm mortified about it. It
pains me to think that you are so depraved. I
know you ain't satisfied, so you'd better apply
for a divorce and go and get married to the
Belgian giant, or some prize fighter, and spar
with him, and crowd him to the ropes, and
sluice him in the aob, if you know what
that means, and I dare say you do, for you
learn all that low slang down at that gymnar
slum."
"Mr. Wilkins, I won't stand this any longer;
it is perfectly—"
"Oh, I know it is, I know you won't stand
it. I expect now you will get up out of bed
and try to throw me out of the window and
break my legs, or upset the stove on me. I
expect that ; this is the chance you've been
laying for all this time; I know it; I'm your
victim ; kill me, murder me, put me out of my
misery, and then go down and marry that
prize-fighter, that's what you want. But
there'' one woman who will shed tears over my
grave; you'll be glad to get rid of me, but
there's one woman will be sorry."
"31r. Wilkins, who do you mean?"
"Oh,never you mind; you'd hate her if
you knew she liked me, and maybe you'd ex
ercise yourself.on her, but I won't give you a
chance."
'•lt's that horrid, nasty Maria Browne, I
know ; she never puts her foot in this house
again.
-,, Yes, there's one woman would be sorry to
see me go, and if you ever die I'm a going to
marry her---" 7.
"You brute, how can you talk so 9"
"Marry her and see if I can't have some
peace . of my life. She . on't go to any gym
nasium and behate as you do,—" •
"It's that Browne, I know,"
"Because she don't approve of such things,
I know,,for she said so, and she thinks that
you—"
"Has she been daring to talk about me to
you? the.vile minx." . •
"Yes, she has ; and she says for her part she
thinks that—that—" . .
"Well, out with it."
"Oh, that- - -that--that you—oh, I guess I
won't repeat it—it ain't necessary."
"But 1 will know."
"Well, then—but no, it was told me in con
fidence."
Phugh 1: I - don'ts care what Idarla.Browne
thinks; she may say what she pleases, I don't
care a cent."
"Butjt wasn't Maria, but the other woman,
and she observe&--but no—"
"I won't hear it; don't you dare to tell me;
I wouldn't listen if you were to bellow it into
my ears." ,
"Well, then, I'll tell you ; she said that—"
"Shut up, or I'll stuff a pillow down your
throat."
" That of all the Jezebels she ever did bear
of—"
"I tell you I won't listen to you."
" Ever did hear of, you are the worst, and if
she were me she'd give warning to the store
keepers not to trust you, , and-make you wear
old-fashioned bbnnets for the rest of your
natural life."
"I ain't listening ; I don't hear a word you.
• "And she said she didn't wonder I was mis
erable, for any man would be who was mar
ried to such an old 'beifer—"
"John Wilkins, I'll be the death of you
Take that, now."
Here there was a' series of thumps. upon,the
floor, the itoise of a scrimmage, then a groan,
and I turned over and went to sleep, while
Mrs. Wilkins came down to breakfast the next
morning dressed all ready to go to the gym
nasium' and reported that Mr. Wilkins was
taken sick during the night and couldn't leave
his room, , . • ,
OUR 'WHOLE COUNTRY.
t '
Now that Italy has a new-born prince, it is
well to know something about "him. His
nurse, it seems, is a young peasant woman,
who'receives 200 francs a month. He was bap
tized on tbe 14th ult., In one, of the halls of,
the royal palace. All the dignitaries were
present: The lady of honor %to the - Princess
iijargherita—Marchesa • di Montereno—en
feted the ball, carrying the ro,vat Want, which
shelaid on the table. ThenresidentbftheSenate,
Count Cassati, after verifying the gex,drew. up
the act of birth, and gave this to the secretary
beside him to read aloud. Immediately after
wards the Minister of Foreign Albers, acting
as crown-notary, affixed the prescribed ac
knowledgment of its legality. Then, followed
by all present, the lady of honor carried the
Prince of Naples into the ball-room, carefully
transformed for the occasion into a chapel,
hung with blue and.white. The royal chaplain
then baptized the child by the names Vittorio
Emmanuele Ferdinando Maria Genuaro,the
Syndic of Naples standing close at the right
hand during the ceremony, as godfather,
representing the city of Naples. The munici
pal/oes in honor of this royal godson were
postponed till the 27th, !&.th, and - th ult., at
the request of the young mother, who was de
sirous of witnessing as much as possible the
popular diversions from her palace. The
Toledo and the principal squares of the city
were illuminated for three nights; there were
abundance of fireworks ; gratuitous represen
tations at all the theatres ; grand gala night at
San Carlo ,• and horse and foot races in the
Campo di Marte.
Mr. Shirley Brooks tells the Illuxtrated Loa,-
don News a rather singular story of a bit of
meanness and the appropriate revenge which
followed it. When the Prince of Wales lately
visited Hull there was a desire to ornament,iu
his honor, the montunent in that city erected
to the Memory of Wilberforce: But the column
was lofty and not easily climbed, and it was
hard to find any one to make the ascent and
wreath it with flowers and foliage. The au
thorities offered a money reward to any man
who would accomplish the task. • After some
time, two. sailors from one of Her Majesty's
ships undertook the job, and performed it
well. They applied for the reward, but the
local officers refused to pay it, on the I,rround
that, being, servants of the Queen, it was
no more than the duty of the sailors
to decorate the shaft in honor. of the 'Prince.
Beer was offered in lieu of the expected
guineas, and the sailors drank it and went
their way. But daring. the night before the
arrival of the royal guest, all the ornament
was torn away, by the same strong and skill
ful hands that had carried it aloft. Moreover,
a small ladder, decidedly not an ornament to
the column, was left sticking there, where no
one could get at it. The loyal authorities of
Hull could only hope that the Prince did not
observe the barrenness and disfigurement of
the Wilberforce column, as he passed it.
Rebel Bonds In England.
The English holders of Confederate bonds
seem to have arrived at a conclusion relative
to their property, very different from that
which is entertained here. But, of course,
they know best in England. We are told that
the prices of the rebel bonds have "consid
erably improved" in value in anticipation of
the settlement of the Alabama claims. People
who are anxious for the stock ought to have
been at the sale on Wednesday, when bonds
to the nominal_ amount. of two and a quarter
millions were sold at the alarming sacrifice of
$B5. Many Englishmen have quietly locked
up their Confederate bonds, under the idea
that some day or other they will turn out to
be a "good thing." We have not so much
faith in worthless securities on this side of the
water.
The city of Venice has officially thanked M.
Do Lesseps for his courtesy in remembering
Italy by calling one of the principal piazzas of
Ismailia after the distinguished Italian engi
neer and patriot, Palaescapa. The three
piazzas of Ismailia are called after Leibnitz,
Cbampollion, and Palaescapa, representing, as
the Venetian City Council wrote, "three
diverse epochs, which Kiluor is now uniting
into one homogeneons whole." Venice
reason to offer these thanks, for Palaescapa
was one of its most distinguished patriots of
the period of 1848. Subsequently, by the
practice of his profession, he attained such
eminence that he became in Piedmont Minis
ter of Public Works. But this compliment to
Venice will be better understood when it is
remembered what relations Venice hopes to
hold to Ismailia as a sharer in the commerce
of the work.
"The physicians,"says the Gcru/ois, "and Dr.
Ilicord at their head, are unanimous in de
claring that the late illness of the Emperor,
far from impairing his health, has, on the
contrary, consolidated it. 'His Majesty,' says
that eminent practitioner,Thas found in the
struggle with his malady a fresh and unex
pected force. Pay no attention to fantastical
and• malevolent diagnostics; it is not the Ern.:peror,
peror, who is most surprised at this issue of the
crisis ; it is I.'"
Edwin Forrest has been playing " Lear " in
Cincinnati, and the Ehquirer says of him
• ! Remembering the almost innumerable points
of excellence we have observed in former
years, we incline to the belief that at every
new ,presentation there are apparent some new
and subtle beauties of detail in tone of ex
presSion, resulting from the actor's unremit
ted study of the role in which "his brightest
and most enduring laurels have been won."
An lowa postmaster neglected to certify on

A Present for the Pope.
Among the presents brought to the Pope by
the Archbishop ,of Nei'' York is a gold fish,
with the mouth formed of rubies. This rarity
Only opens its mouth to throw out pieces of
gold, and the coin is both of the best quality
and appears , to be almost inexhaustible in
quantitv. Gift fish, it would seem, are not of
the nature of gift horses, but are intended to
be looked in the mouth.
American Artists at Florence.
A correspondent at Florence (if we mistake
not, Mr. Alfred Austin), writing to a London
paper, says :
Our Transatlantic cousins have taken a start
in sculpture, and seem fully determined not to
let the grass, grow , beneath their feet. Mr.
Powers has for many years been established
at Florence and the Italians, no load judges
of a branch of art in which they have few
rivals, are free to confess that the grace and
beauty. aniLlabove all, the elaborate finish
which characterize the productions of the
American sculptor, have powerfully stimu
lated the exertions of their own contrymen,
and contributed not a little to the pr6gress of
a noble art, which, during the present century,
has ,entered upon . a brilliant period of rejuve
neScence. I have already made a cursory'
mention of Mr. Thi)4laB Ball's new statue of
Eve, now on its way to the 'Tatted States. It
is a masterly work, worthily personifying
what may be called an Anglo-Saxon ideal of
* * thelaireat of her daughters, Eve;
Manlike, but ditrreot sex, so lovelyfatr,
That what seenVd fair in all the world sepolid,

Mr.Geuld 'has given its au admirable suble.ct,
executed with grace, freedom., and' 'lightness
of touch, and carried out his conception in a
healthy spirit of originality. What a Sculp,.
tor will principally admire in' this beautiful
work'of art is the masterly dexterity with
which the technical difficulties of the stqi
port have been vanquished, the figure being,
in fact, sustained by what is in appearance its
most delicate and aerial portion, the swelling
folds of the drapery, which seem to float along,
almost without touching the earth. As Eng
land and America form in many respects, and
especially the world of art, but one country,
I imagined that these particulars would' be
equally interesting to English readers.
