A Otitious Hog Story.
The correspondent of The eineinnalge.
Thrum with Gen. Mitchell's command is re
sponsible for the thllowing yarn.
The hogs in this part of the country are
musically inclined, and all come up to break
fast to the trine or "Pixie." On every plan

',Lying music to the hops for about an hour
every morning: and from • the very moment
when he commences, till the end of the piece
the shrill, piercing notes of the hogs are
heard coining from all directions, and blen
ding With the music of the darkey, from the
full grown sow to the smallest of the litter ;
these notes are audible a mile distant. I
can never ftwget When I first witnessed - the
scene. and for the life of me I could not tell
or make omit what it meant.
"I asked him what tune he liked best and
played most to rally the hogs ?" he respon

can it be possible that the Southern chivalry
and Southern hogs march to the same tune ?

Largest city in the World,
A very .eironemis idea is indulged in by
many people in relation"to the hugest eityin
the world, many coufidently , „asserting that.
London, or, us it is frequently torttrod, the
Great Metropolis, is far superior, both in
size and the number of its inhabitants. But
such is not the ease. Jeddo, the capital of
Japan, is, without exception, the largest and
most populous city in the world.
It contains the Vas . t number of 1,500,000
dwellings, and 5,000,000 of httneui souls.—
Many of the streets are nineteen Japaneser
ies in length, which is equivalent to twenty
two English miles.
The eotnincret of Jeddo far exceeds that
of any other city in world, and the sett along
its coast is constantly white with the sails of
ships. Their vessels sail to the Southern
portion of the empire, where they are laden
with rice, tea, sea coal, tobacco, silk, cotton
and tropical fttiits i 'fill of Which can find e
