Miss Clara Louiea Kellogg, recognized
as the most gifted and cultured of Ameri
can prima donncs, is filling an engagement
in Philadelphia, this wee!;, at tbe Academy
of Music. Last Friday we chanced to be
in the same car that carried Miss Kellogg to
the city, and in the seat immediately in
fiont of the one in which the distinguished
lady sat alone. In the future if we are to
have one, if our days are not soon ended
we shall write among our reminiscences of
travel, of how on Friday morning of Octo
ber 3rd, 1873, a well preset ved old gentle
man, of perhaps sixty years, employed the
ingenuity at It is command to press his at
tentions on a lady in a seat buck of ours,
and how the refined manner in which she
repulsed his efforts to form acquaintance,
induced us to look bark and so familiarize
our eyes with the cist ot her features that
when we pot into the city and esw the
picture of Miw Kellogg in shop or store
windows, we instantly recognized it as
having beeu taken from the face of the
lady who sat in the seat b ick of ours in
the car. We'd ride or drive a dozen ol
miles to witness tiie looks of lhat old goose
of a fellow when informed of the name of
the lady upon whom he attempted io show
er his attentions that morning.

Treasurer, because, the State

In a case of breach of promise of mar
riage iu Brooklyn, recently, a lady recov
ered (15,001). The case was some hut
pec-.iliar. The woman admitted that her
beau bad not in words asked for marriage,
and that she had not in words promised to
marry him, but that he bad been courteous
and on divers occasions squeezed her band,
and tl vrefore she inferred he meant mar
riaje. Tbe judge charged iu substance,
that "actions speak louoer than words,"
and l.iereou the jury found for the woman.
The man could not think nt submitting to
such a verdict, coustqueutl- hecanied the
case up to I lie "Courl of Appeals." That
tiibunal sustained the court below, mid
now there is no rimed,- for the beau but to
pay oi marry. The case. - it stands, may
throughout be Correct. Be it so or not, so
the veriiict is tbe same, and the question
naturally coni-i up. If it cota so many
thousand dollars to squeeze a woman's
band iu Brooklyn, what would it cost him
to kiss a woman's hand ? and what would
the courts there pronounce on a man for
kissing a Woman's lips? If we were a
lawyer we'd bve the opinions c.l the
Brooklyn courts in that case if it took a
year's practice. It is so very important,
und eft'ec's such a !rge circle of people.
Vote f..r Irwin for the Senate
because, he is a man of solid
worth, and no political jobber.
Donaldson started in his balloon to
Europe on Monday at 9 o'clock, from
New ork, Contrary winds prevented

Beading has bad a new sensation.
This tinia it comes from Alasce town
ship, and relates to tbe domestic affairs
of a wealthy farmer named Isaac Uan-
er, who some yeara ago met a pretty
match girl, with whom be fell in love
and induced her to become Mrs. Beckia
Ganser. He furnished ber with every
thing that the heart of woman could be
supposed to desire, an4 a'l weut as
happy as a whole string of marriage
bells, and the uuiou was blessed with
one beautiful little girl named Katie.
But alas, for the perversity of woman
kind. The wife for some reason be
came dissatisfied, and soou it became
apparent that Eeckie and Isaac were
out, and cn Sunday night of Ust week
she left, and uow the Heading Eage is
informed that Beckie has taken refuge
iu the city of Philadelphia, where she
will in future rsst coutent to live a life
of single blessedness. It has also been
made known that she loaded up all her
clothes and worldly effects on a wheel,
barrow, Sunday night, aud actually
wheeled them the eutire distance
from Alsace to Beading, and up 7th
street, where she remained until ber

The food of the French workman Is, aa a
general rule, substantially inferior to thai
to which the Kncliiihman is accustomed.
Many a French factory hand never lias any
thing better fur his breakfast than a large
slice of common sour bread, rubbed over
with an onion, so as to give it a flavor. For
dinner, some soup, potatoes or carrots, and
sometimes a small piece of pork, which
costs aliout ten pence a pound ; and for
their last meal they eat the meat of which
their soup was composed. With this frugal
tare some drink ouly water, others halt a
bottle wf cider, ber or wine. Bread, veg
etables and Iruit are generally to be obtain
ed in France both cheap and good, but
meat is bad aud dear.
