Marshall of Illi- nois, is improving in health. Hooper, of Massachusetts, shows in his face, as well aa in the rotundity of his person, that he is the besl liver in the House, while McPherson, the Clerk o! the House, looks like the ghost of a starved corkscrew. He is so thin that he has to stand up twice to ninke a'shadow, and yet he is a first rate liver. Genera!

Following one of them for tomo distance, he .sees him coma up to renew his breath in the manner above described.

The Po-vver of Music -An Anecdote of Mendelssohn. There is a pleasant incident, related of Mendelssohn, who went one summer to rest his overtaxed brain in Xuricli. There he was besieged by eager admirers, but would accept of no invitation, until hearing lhat the blind pnpiU of the blind school were anx- ious, us they said to "see him.'' He spoke to the Mglillcss assembly in the kindest words, and listened to their songs and chor- uses, some even of their own com posing, with interest and pleasure. And then the great musician asked permission to sitdovn at their piano, and wandered away into one of those wild and tender strains of epcaki i We hev agreed and we in other, our words and pennies to find which has the rian.

General Schcnck and Gen- eral Butler talk by if they really believed what they said, and expected every- body to be convinced of tho correctness of their views, the moment the words leave their ino'ilh. Butler wears a broad-rimmed slouched hat, tilled on one side of his head with a rakish or brigand! :h air, ivhile his make-up oiherwise resembles a well fed al- derman. A Strange Dream. Among the victims of the Angola disas- ter was Mr. J. P. Hayward, of the Stale Line, who was in the employ of Ihe railroad company as their agent at that place. The Painsville, Ohio, Advertiser gives an of a strange the correctness of wh'c-h it Mr. II. had just six moths before he loft his life. It says "He dreamed that he was. away from home, in a (li-sf-i'l, when suddenly he heard a ter- iQc crash, .saw a bright light which seemed to reach to tha heavens, and heard screams and yells of the most frightful character.
