A TOUCHING TRIBUTE TO TLTE HEJIORY
OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN-
A correspondent of the Chicago Tri
bmie, writing from Florence, Italy, says :
"Among tbe first incidents which met
my eyes as I entered Italy were one or
two, which are perhaps not altogether un
worthy of being read, and one of which
in particular may have a peculiar inter
est for American readers. I was walk
ing through the narrow streets of the lit
tle town of Lugano, when my eyes were
attracted by a well known portrait sus
pended in front of a small bookstore.
The portrait was that of Abraham Lin
coln; aud you will not wonder that the
i'bt alone ot tbe laminar leaturcs ar
rested one's foot-steps, as they hang there
in that quaint, mediaeval, out-of-tbe-way
pla3e, looking round upon . a scene so
wholly foreign to that other wot Id, of
which the late President of the United
States was so vividly the personification.
I went up by an irresistible impulse of
respect to lo,k at it, aud I was glad I
did so, for I fouua beneath it in writing,
and in Italian, an inscription which show
ed that the little portrait had in fact been
attached to bis house by tbe owner like a
sacreJ image, ax once a testimony of his
own faith acid feelings, and an appeal to
those of his fellow citizens. "This,"
said the inscription, "is a portrait of
Abraham Lincoln, and so long as the sun
shines on men, so so leng shall the tame
of him who redeemed fout millions of
slaves from captivity, of bim who, clut
ching to his strong breast tbe facet of.
the American Union, fell a vict:m to
horrible assassination so long shall his
name resouod great, venerated, and bless
ed throughout tbe world."
THE KUMBER OF LANGUAGES-
Tas least learned are aware that there
are many languages in the world, but the
actual number is probably beyond the
dreams of ordinary people. The geogra
pher, Babi, enumerated eight hundred
and sixty, that are ectitled to be consid
ered as distinct languages, and five thou
sand which may be regarded as dialects.
Adelung, another modern writer on this
subject, reckons up three ' thousand and
sixty-four languages and dialects existing
and which have existed. Even after we
have allowed either of these as the number
of languages, we must ' acknowledge tbe
existence of almost infinite minor diversi
ties,' for alrdost every providence has a
tongrfe more or less peculiar, aud this we
may well beiicre to be the case through
out the w'oild at Kire' It is said there afii
little islands, lyicg. close together in the
bouth bca, the inhabitants of which do
not understand each other. Of the eight
hundred aud sixty dintinet sanguages enu
merated by Babi, fifty-three belong to Eu
rope, one hundred and fourteen to Africa,
one Btiudrcd twenty-three Asia, four hun
dred and seventeen to America, one hun
dred and seventeen to Oceanica which
term distinguishes the vast number of is
lands t trschting between Ilindostan and
South America. .

Strange as it seems, this is literally true.
No special tools even arc needed. Any
amateur, who has operated on either of
the metals may chuck a piece of glass cn
his lathe, and turn it with tbe same tools,
and in the eame way as he would a piece
of steel, only taking care to keep tbe chips
from bis eyes. This strange discovery
was made, almost accidentally, in the ear

have been patented, but tbe inventor con

A XOTEL LNYENTI05.
Tbe Chemical Acirs states that M.
I'elon bas invented a new beating appa
ratus adapted to tbe warming of railway
carriages, aud called a "beat generator.
It consists of a cone of wood, which is
covered with hemp, and which is made to
revolve with great speed within a hollow
cone of copper. . These are enclosed in a
metallic vessel, through which air is pars
ed, and becoming heated in the passage,
then conveyed to tbe carraige. t The in
ventor proposes to place a generator out
aid? each carriage ; raottcn will be ' giveu
to tbe wooden cono by one of the axles
of tbe carriage ; and the heated air will
be admitted to tbe vehicle by an arrange
ment under the control of the passengers.
The "he'at-generator" is, indeed, io actual
use at Taris, and seems to be really effica
cious. Tbe machine is turned by a force
equal only to about tha twentieth of a
horse power, but, after rotating for about
eight or ten minutes, the air escaping
from the apparatus was found to have at
tained a temperature of 70 deg. C.
THE OLDEST REPUBLIC ON EARTH-
The American Quarterly Revicto .con
tains a letter from 0. W. Irving, Esq.,
giving a sketch of hia visit to San Ma
rino, a small republic in Italy, between
the Apennines, the Po, and the Adriatic.
The territory of this Stats is only forty
miles in circumference, and its population
about seven thousand. , The republic was
founded more than fourteen hundred
years Ago, on moral principles, industry,
and equity, and has preserved its liberty
and independence amid all ibe wars and
dlscods which have raged around it.
Bonaparte respected it, and sent an em
bassy to express his sentiments of friend
ship and fraternity. It is governed by a
captain regent, chosen every six months
by the representatives of tha people,
(sixty-six in number,) who were chosen
every six months by tbe people. The
taxes are light, tbe fafm-bouscs are neat,
the fields well cultivated, and on all sides
are reen comfort and plenty, the happy
effect of morality, simplicity, and frugally-
. A few evenings ago, my little daughter
who bad been spending tbe afUrnoou at
a neighbor's started with me through the
darkness for home, It was tha first time
that she bad ever been out doora in the
night, and everything seemed new and
strange. "Papa, I see lota cf stars in
heaven," said she. "Why, pspa, tee liow
many bouses have got lights in the win
dows." As soon as her curiosity, abated
somewhat, she began to be troubled
about the way home. "I can't see our
honse, papa. I don't know the way;
where are we going ?" she said anxiously.
I replied, "I cau see the road, and if you
keep hold of my band I will take care of
you. Then she said :." Yes j you do know
the way, don't you, papa f You will take
care of your little girl, causa you love
her, don't you, papa?" After this she
only grasped my band a little tighter, and
trudged cheerfully onward, wherever I
lJtheway. ' v

, Labor laving- implements were once
thought to be destructive to tbe interests
of the working man,' jost in proportion as
they saved the drudgery of labor. This
seems reasonable at first, but a little tho't
will correot the error. . How then do the
farm laborers, thrown out of work by the
introduction of improved implements, ul
timately find work t . Plainly by the in
creased amount of tillage , which ' horse
power, machinery and toois make possible
in the country., Io a section where all
the soil is under cultivation of some kind,
i: will lead to mora thorough system of
farming.. In the case of our own country,
it lead? to the faster extension of civiliza
tion westward, tha rapid subjugation of
wild landa. and thm. baiiaa -alttvaUea of
that already under tbe plow. For in
stance, the Western grain grower, who
now devotes 75 or 150 acres to corn and
other grain erops, with the meager facili
ties of thirty years ago, could not have
managed one-fourth part that amount in a
similar manner. This increase of agri
culture, not only keeps good tbe original
number of farm laborers, but creates a
new demand for laborers in every other
field cf industry. More ships and rail,
roads are required for transportation, more
manufacturing establishments, more me
chanics to construct these, and men to
manage tbem, more miners, machinist, eto.
In fact, the whole body politic . thus re
ceives vital refreshment from every Teally
labor-saving invention. This L a forcible
illustration of the fact that whatever fair
ly advaacet tha interests of one class, be- '
eomes a benefit to all classes in the eom
munity. American Agriculturist.
SCRATCHES' LN HORSES
A correspondent of tbe last New Eng.
land Farmer thus refers to "bright rar-
nis'u" as a cure for cuts, wounds, and es
pecially scratches in borset :
"When I worked at my trade in tha
city, I had occasion to use. different kinds
of paints and oils ; among them ia what ia
called 'bright varnish.'. Frequently I
wou'd cut myself, sometimes so severely
that I have been laid np for weeks. I
would try all kinds of salve, . but the
wound would be a long time healing. One
day I cut my band severely, and as I had
nothing at hand to put on it, I thought I
would try some of the bright varnish ; as
it is a sticky substance, and I thought it
might stick tho wound together ; accor
dingly I bound up my band with it and
kept on at work ; tbe varnish relieved the
pain, I bad no soreness in the wound, and
in one week it was entirely healed. My
son was rswing through a board one day,
and carelessly put his hand under the
board. He bad his fore finger bone en
tirely sawed off. I put tbe ends together,
put on this varnish and bound it up. Tha
result was, that after one week the ban
dage was removed, and tbe finger had
nearly grown together. My horse once
had scratches so badly that it was difficult
to get bim to move about. I rubbed 'Se
parts affected with this varnish for two
days, which caused a perfect cure. The
varnish can be bought at the paint shops
for six or eight cents per quart.''
ISTha Blairsville JV'cic Era says : A
few days ago a Mr. William Stitt handed
us a copy of the Blairsville Record, pub
