John. Ilempdert, having convinced
himself.beyond all peradventure that
the world was fiat, not round, as com
monly supposed, undertook the arduous
missisonary work of 'converting man
kind to his way of belief. Not making
much progress, by following the ordi
nary methods of private preaching, be
resorted to the expedient of offering a
bet upon the subject. He made a pub
lic announcement, offering to stake
$2,600 againt $2,500 to be put up by any
scientific man, thathe could prove that
the earth wad flat, and not round, as
everybody else believ'ed.
No one appears to have taken imme
diate, notice of this absurd offer, and'
Hampden came out with' another an
nouncement, in hich he boldly de
clared that selent fie men knew they
were guilty of a imposition in pro
pounding the ro nd theory, and that,
in coneequence, hey were afraid to
take up Ills challe ge and stake $2,500,
as he proposed.,
But the challenge having come to the
notice of Mr. Alfred Wallace, a gentle
man of highleputation, and a member
of several scientific Societies, he accep
ted thelconditions, and put up his $2,-
600. T bia amount, together with a' si
milaramount;put up by Hampden, was
deposited, subject •to , the order of the
referees' Mr: Walshi editor of theirield
newspaper per, who Was to • pay over the
$6,000 to the .winning man.
[ The 4mode adepted for settling the
questio4 was planned by Hampden,
the advoeate of the flat theory, and the
experiment appears to have been con
'ducted in all respects as he desired.-=
The ground selected was a six mile lev
el,-on thp Bedford canal. Three long
poles of equal length were provided;
auks phinted,at equal depths, and at dis
tances of three ,nallea apart. A tele
scope was then employed, through
which It was clearly aturunmistakably
perceived that the central pole was five
feet above the level line of the telescope,'
which at once proved that the earth
was not flat, but round. 'Mr. Hampden
expressed himself 'satisfied that he had
lost the bet,_ and the money was accor
dingly paid by the referee to the win
ner, Mr. Wallace.
The experiment and the ielescop
were level, butnot so the head of Mt
Hampden. He that's convinced agains
his will is of the same opinion still. It
was not long before Hampden woke up
to the mortifying conclusion that he
had made a blunder, or that in some
way he had been befogged. His reason
told him that the earth was still flag,
and not round, as that lying telescope
and those [fibbing poles had affirnied.—
He concluded also that Wallace was a
thimble-rigger, ,a pickpocket, a liar,
and a 'swindler, and went about pro
claiming these libels. in the most un
blushing maniter. This so annoyed
Wallace, that lie brought suit for libel
'against Hampden , = and 'the jury lately

The Hotel Clerk.
Some shrewd writer thus takes off
the conventional American Hotel clerk.
" He was young ; he had a neat mous
tache and Well brushed hair; jeweled
studs sparkled on his shirt front, and
rings on his white hands ; a gentle disc
lain of the 'traveling, public breathed
from his person in the .mystical odors
of Ihlang-ihlang. He did not lift his
haughty head td look at. the wayfarer
who meekly wrote his game in the ho
tel register; be did not answer him
when he begged forla cool .room ; he
turned to the board on which the keys
bung, and pliteking one from it, slid it
toward Basil on the. marble counter,
touched a bell for apall,bOy, whistled a
bar of Offenbach, unit; as he wrote the
number :of the room against Basil's
name, said . : to a friend lounging near
s it' resuming a conversation:
' Wejtattle's, r a mighty pooty girl, any
way,: OfittwleY !'

What need to describe it? Do we not
know the absurdity Of its construction,
and how ingeniously it has been do
signed for the destruction of comfort,
and ease,, and grace, in walking, and
also of semblance to a real - wornan's
foot ? When It first came into fashion,
the ladies were told by• a few sensible
men, that. to put their feet into a ma
chine' with% toe like a bird's bill; and
a heel three inches high brought for
ward under the instep,• would insure
suffering and deformity.
But the dear creatures, in' their irre
sistible way, resented this interference
with their pierogative of self-torture
and self...caricature, and asked, 'Would
you have us look like dowdiso, with
broad toes to our shoes, and. low heek
and all that ?'—' all that' meaning 'heels
where nature intended they should be.
The plea was unanswerable. But, the
predicted :consequences have come.—
Ladies' shoemakers (certain truthful
ones) tell us, what •observationTalso re

man now, who regards herself at all
fashionable, who has not bunions, cal
losities, corns and enlarged-Joints; and
that the crop of these ornaments devel
oped within the last four or five years
is astonishing and pitiful. The worst
of it is, that there appears to be no pros
pect of relief, except a turn in the
whirlgig of fashion, and that there are
no exceptions to the rule of torture and
deformity ;—for the good and sensible
of the sex inunolato themselves with
the foolish and the frivolous: No de

A " Potato Race" in N. Hampshire.
A correspondent of the Boston Ad
vertiser -writes from East .Wilton, New
Hampshire, that outdoor athletic exer
cises are the fashion, and one of th
novelties is the potato race, which isf
thus described : A very curious trial
of strength and speed it is. Three lines
of potatoes were laid. ,Each line is of
* fifty—each a yard from each other. Of
course eaeli line is 49 yards long. At
the end of each line is a basket, by
.which at the start a contestant stands.
In this case there aro three competitors;
At the word " go," each one begins
where be chooses on his lint to pick up
potatoes that he may bring them to his
basket.' He must pick up but one on
each trip, and turn to bring it back to
the brisket. Your mathematical read
ers will see that this involves seven
thousand three hundred and fifty feet
of running, with such deductions as
may be made for an outstretched arm
when one comes to his basket; and
with the serious addition of two turns
of every potato, or one hundred turns
in all. Three apirited contestants en
tered, and one of them, named . 'Thrash:
er,' distinguished here as having won
a tub race in the lastsports, which were
aquatic, performed that feat in a li4le
more than nilue minutes. The other
two were elose l behind him. If you
er have any Oeasion to try, let me tell
you that the 4eientitic performance is
'to take your long runs firSlt when your
wind is rood. When you want to re
gain your breath, take your short runs,
which involve the delay 'Of turning,
but are easier for breathing: You see
how good the time was for a distance of
a mile and a half.
The, following account of a Curious
freak in the entomologicalline, we copy
from an exchange:
"Recently myriads of little black
caterpillars .have appeared in various
sections, of Tennessee. On the line of
the Mississippi and Tennessee railroad,
a few miles south of Memphis, they
c vered the railroad track to such an
'e tent, that the wheels . of the railway
t sins refused to pass over them, but
to hided around with such veto - city that
II e trains stood still. Upon reaching
tl e " varmints," the locomotive crush
el them 'With a popping, snapping,
s( nod for a few hundred feet, and when
tl e wheels were well greased with fat,
i t'N6in Id stop ; snd not until the track,
was swept - and sanded, . would th e
wheels perform their duty. Shortly
after passing, the caterpillars again
swarmed over the- rails, and the next
train passing 'had the .same work of
sweeping to perform. They have also
been seen, though less' numerously, on
the A elll phiS }tlld ChfirleStoll and Mem
phisnd Little Rock roads. Out on
the r cc course near , Memphis ) ) during
last r eel:, W
it as' stated that when per

fewotnents elapsed before the 'sate&
was covered with the creepers, which
vseemed to rise from the earth or
other hidden abode.
" It is stated that a little Windt - sheet
of •water, some Seven mites from Afern
phis, is literally swarming with cater-
Pillars, which, having crowded around
its borders in such countless •numbers,
are crowded into the water by force of
