Han is tenacious of life even when most sorely afflicted, "the drowning mail will catch at a straw." When age oppresses us and the measure of our years be full, here is still hope that another may be led. When the most grievous misfortunes assail us, instead of yielding, we combat hem, and so these poor fellows, fearful that a ruthless, instead of a humaoi, foe pursued them, longing to protract their lives, even f they had to hobble through them and bear the reproach of being cripples, dragged themselves to the rear. What an immensity of woo was saved these men by their Provi- dential capture. Even now we can sae their dreadful gaping wounds exposed and bare" to tbe cooling shower. Yet can we fap' their piteous cries and shocking impreca- tions as the heavy wagons jostled into fomu gulley, and still is audible their exultation over our capture. They seemed to take a fiendish delight in scoffing at us. >Yo watched one poor fellow as he crawled along almost on bis hands and one leg, for other knee-joint was terribly shatteted. We could not feel enmity to a man in so wretched a plight and our eyes must have told him of our pity for they were filled with tears.

THE following is an extract from a private letter written by a. lady in New York .Cfhen Dickens curne on the I had a little aback of disappointment. I had im- agined him rather tall and large not fat, but shapely and elegant in figure. Instead, he looked small and slun-letrged a dapper li'.Ue fellow. He is veiy bald, but has pro- fuse locks .combed out on each side beyond his eara, a featUory goatee, a very red face I think be uses the ditrk screen 'to relieve it and small eyes, bint-like, glancing and restless. His side look is bird-like. His toice is not good, rather husky nnd mo- notonous in cadence, because he rnrely uses tho downward slide, but almost always tho at the close of a sentence. His gestures are few and not very graceful. He hardly ever gesticulates from the only from the elbow, and generally affront oft a sort of twisting of his hand, ftsJjEjto were winding up an imag- jnarrwatch-ftiside his xraistcont.

It retains warmth Vor some hours, and 'teepa the skater's foot in a comfortable sort of porta- ble stove, which is handj and effective. As an evidence of the stagnation at ent existing in business circles in New York, it is reported that a leading carpet house in that city only paid their female hands last week an average of S3 90 each, which wns insufficient to pay tho board of many of the employees. UNFAVORABLE news as to the slate of the Pope's hi-alth is confirmed by letters from Home. It is laid that during the last tew days tho sanitary condition of his Holiness has excited considerable anxiety. The en- ergy and firmness winch he displayed during the recent politicil events having been cceded by a reaction which ban occadiouid great debility. v As Albany woman went to Hudson after m of the people in the vicinity have left their homes, fearing an earthquake or othor ca- lamity. No such eruption has probably cnrred iu Vesuvius for centuries, ani the spectacle is regarded as one of the most magnifiuent and publjme ever witnessed in nature, A party of Detroit burglars laet wook gagged a'woman by stuffing an apple in hor mouth. her husband, who was on a batter." Sho succeeded in finding him, and persuaded him to go home with her. Just as tho cars were starting, however, he changed his mind and jumped from the train. She did tho same, and tailing, broke her leg in two pla- ces. THE Pope is visiting condign punishment on all his subjects who evinced any thy wilh Garibaldi, nnd as many as Konians are in the -jrisons of Rome. Tho terror of tho peoplu is such that they are Qeeiug by hundreds to the Italian territory. HRT.EKA, Montann, reports a curious in- stance of the Chinese mode of trial. A fire took place there recently, aud all the Chi- nese residents were summoned to ballot for the offender. Tho one receiving the highest number of votes wai to be punished. it has lately been ascertained, is of German descent. His grand-mothor was a beautiful Weitphalian lady, M'lle Von Neuhof, who her brother, a dis- tinguished physician, L. Corsica, and mar- ried the giandfather of the old patriot, Af- ter the death, the grandmother moved with her children to Nice, where Gar- ibaldi, fifteen years afterward, was born. A couple was recently married in Great Harrington, Massachusetts; whose united ages were one hundred and thirty-two years. They were old enough to know perhaps there is no better. A London Review says of the author of that a man may be a fluent preacher, and a brother of a clever woman, and yet break don n when he attempts to write a novel. Ax appeal has been made to the national banks to contribute one-tenth of one per ccnt.'of tho amount of their capital stock to- wurds the completion of the Washington tfatiodal Monument, in Washington. This, with the appropriation expected from Cou- p-ess, will be sufficient to complete it. A genteel family was found a few days ago n ono of tbe suburbs of London, literally starving or starved to death; the furniture and clothing gone, tho father dead of hun- jer on the floor, the wife and mother dying on tbe bed, the children perishing, the est girl crnzv with hunger, and moaning, "It is the last bit of it for baby."
