The Academy, with the view of in piring and encour
aging a taste for Natural Histor. for the last half
et flinty, has admitted the , public, to its Id neenni, on two
i rhys of the weak, without cost. The A c stemy would
i wish to pursue the same course, but now find it neees-
Miry . for the preservation of Its collections . to limit the
multitude of visitors. The excessive crowds not only
interfere with the progress and comfort of the visitors,
but cause much destruction ofproperty. in the breaking
of glass and wood-work ; and the production of dust is
so great as seriously to damage the collect ions.

The Oxford (Chester county) Press says
Leiper and Lewis are relaying . their railroad
track and adapting it to the use of steam in
stead of horse-power as heretofore. _ This
road connects the renowned and superb gran
ite quarries of .Avondale (in this county), with
'a tidewater landing in Ridley creek near Lei
perville. These quarries, 'together with the
road were r'ecently purcha.sedxThy Messrs.
Leiper and Lewis. Dr. George Smith, in his
history of Delaware county, tells us that" the
first railroad in the United States was indlt in
Ridley township, in 1806, by, the late Thomas
Leiper, for the transportation of stone from . ,
Ridley creek, a distance of about one tulle.
The ascents were - graded inclined, planes, and

railroad in the United States was this one-in

The following extracts from a private letter,
written by a member of the Virginia House of
Delegates to a friend in this city, 'give some
additional and interesting particulars of the
recent catastrophe : • '
9 he ball of the House of Delegates occu-
pied all the north end of •the Capitol, over
a bleb were the executive chambers and the
room of, the Court of Appeals. The latter,
at one time, was in two rooms, and when they
were thrown into one the bridge or truss
bracing which was inclosed in the; partition
was removed. The floors of these , upper
rooms were supported by three girders (truss);
but the,,one in the _ centre,_which broke,-bad
been deprived of all support but its own
strength. Over the House ball was a separate
ceiling, with its joists, &c., and over the-court
room the same.
T be middle girder broke in the centre, and
all,from the roof to the hall floor, fell, striking
three separate blows at short intervals, say a
half-minute in all—filling the centre of the
hall to about the average depth of twelve feet
with a mass of buildin Material in--ruin, in

Tbe company in the court-room was com

ablest judicial minds; who were auxidna - to
test• their own judgment of the law points in

number of the poorer classes, holding or expect-•
ing police and other municipal places; and'
alto a large number of negroas, who, its usual,.
now flock to courts and meetings where they
think any question involving their rights will
be raised. The number of the latter class is.
large, and the families, of a large number of .
the poorer classes are left without means of

I, being the presiding officer of the caucus,
was in the Speaker's chair, and bad only left
it about ten minutes, and .had_only AIMS to

TIL Tribune says
The House of Representativeg has for some
weeks been mainly engaged in, a. revision of
the Cnstoms Tariff; wherein 'every item is
brought under consileration, and most,. of
them submitted to .a direct scrutiny and vote,
A few are increased a much larger number
are reduced ; while the Free-List is very con
siderably extended. But this is not "revenue
reform," according to the' views of those who
are masquerading in the cast-off robes of
Calhoun and McDuflie, becauseiit does not
ignore and destroy Protection to American ,
Industry. -
" IZeduce the Taxes P , —That is just what
don't value it on that account ; for we hold
that the tir^ fr- reducing the. National In
arrived; an
have been funded at a lower
rate of interest. Hence, we are indifibrent to
the fate of Gen. Schenck's bill ; but the fact
that it will, if — enacted, reduce the Reyenue
by many is clear. But .this isn't
satisfactory to the " Revenue Reformers,"
simply and solely because it does not subvert
'When this measure shall have been disposed
of, the Committee hays an Excise or • Internal
Revenue bill ready to follow it: That reduces
some taxes and abolishes others, so as to di
minish taxation by some twenty millions
more. Taken together, these two bills reduce
tho revenue by about likty millions per annum.
But they don't satisfy the self-styled << Revenue
Reformers," because they do not put an end
to protection.
The income tax expires by limitation with
the current year. We think_.t_shottld_nat,h,
reimposed. Congress should maintain.; good
faith • and it was Congress that decided years
ago, that this should be the first tax abolished..
To reimpose a heavy and: odious tax at the
same time that we are reducink saveral taxes
and abolishing others, would seem a strange
policy.' But this is deemed' essential to the
overthrow - of - Protection: so :we MiTsl expect
to see it commended and insisted on ass
measure of " Revenue Reform."

known and hioody incident which occurred
afterwards in his diplomatic career."
After the fainous -Ostend Conference, and
while Smile was Minister to Madrid, occurred
the duels which M. Gaillardet thits'allude.s to:
- - "Soule - , who had been the% soid:of - the
-Ostend- Conference,--had- just -returned from
Madrid, when he was invited, along with
other members of. the diplomatic corps, -to a
ball given '.by the Marquis de Turgot, Min
ister. of -France, on the--occasion -of some
national anniversary. He went, with his wife
and-his son, who was his Secretary of Lega
tion. Madame Soul, on the arniof the latter,
was passing a, group of gentlemen - ,when she
heard the- Duke of of .
say : 'There goes.

so, it could only have referred to her personal
appearance ; for if she were as handsome and
strong as Georges in La Tour de Ye*, she
was an honorable lady, whom Blander had
never touched. But -she did not:Bo - .under--
stand-it, -and her -son -Went at once-. to- the.
Duke of Alba and-demanded an explanation
of the'insult to his mother. .A hostile meet
ing was decided on.
On ICarning. what had passed,.Soule -the
on his part, demanded ;reparation
frommthe Marquis de Turgot; wheal he held
responsible - for — thw - outrage offered te-a-lady
in his houe by the 'brother-in-law of his
master.. -The Marquis vainly protestedibis in
nocence. Nothing could persuade Soule that
the scene was a bit designed for him-by or in
behalf - of — the---Tiiileries, : --They -meant i -in in—
sulting him, to please the Emperor and Em
press, who regarded him as an enemy since
the unfortunate issue of his presentation at
the Elysee. Strange effect of preconceived
ideas! The double duel took place without
serious result to the Duke of Alba or young
bottle, but with a ball in the knee of the Mar
quis de Turgot, which lamed him for life.
" This unfortunate affair made Pierre
S.oule's stay at Madrid; unpleasant and
as General Marcy,-Secretary of State,
did not give him the spport he bad promised,
he requested to be recalled. On his return
home, to show the constant firmness of his
position in the eyes of young America, he

The Grent_Case in New York

The ease of the clergyman who took his gin

be left, like the offence of Brummell's brother

The same quiet humor which .marked the
indictment characterizes the verdict. Tho

This is surely putting it very mildly. The
guilt was in actually inducing, not tempting,
the barkeeper to violate the ExCiAe law.
With regard to the dictum of the committee
that in asking the rePorters " What will you

will be different opinions: A mord:direct and
explicit invitation "to take something" could
hardly have been made to thirsty reporters.
The late ArtenauS Ward s was once asked by

San Franctsco;, and in reply to the despatch;
" What will you take for a hundrednights?"
promptly replied, " Brandy and water." But

In the first place, being unaccustomed' to •

the poor baby had no less than thirty-seven

the poor child ice-cold baths - night and morn- .
ing, and instead of wrapping the little creature'
up in flannel on taking it out of, the bath, She
always extended, the shivering,naked body on. , '
her lap and tried reaction by slapping and rub-.
bing. Of course the consequence was croup,and
the child died. The mother,almost frantic,serit •
in every direction for counsel, although sur-,-
