He gained the title from the fact of his catchiug a bumble- bee one day as he was shingling his barn, and iu attempting to destroy the'insect with his hatchet, cut off the ends of his thumb and fore-finder, letting the insect go un- harmed. Other mishaps happened to the same old codger in the same barn. In one of his abstractions he shingled over his spare hatchet; and cutting a small aperture in the building to let a littie daylight in, this man actually set in a wooden as beiug eco- nomical aud-not likely iu be broken Oucle T., in one of bis oblivious freaks, nailed his left arm so firmly betwist two boards of a fence be was putting up, that he had to call help to get esiricated from his self-imprison- ment, lie once put a button on the gate instead of tbe post. But tha rarest of'all was when he ran through the streets with his hands about three feet asunder, held before him, begging the passers-by not to disturb him as he had got the measure of a door- way with him. 85F-A correspondent in Sullivan, Maine, details a very curious case. Capt. Tuftsj of that town, having in a Keg in bis store about two pounds of gunpowder, poured the contents into a paper, which be carried to tbe house and gave it to his wife for safe keeping. Mrs. Tufts put the powder in the oven nf a stove in an unoccupied room, with the intention of taking it out when at lei- sure, but forgot to do so. Not long after this, while Gtpt. T. was sawing in a lath mill, one of his hands was nearly out Hij physicians nearly despaired of his life, as every efiort to stop the blood had proved unavailing. In the mean time a fire was kindled in the stove which contained the powder, ia order to warm the room for the reception of Capt. T. Immediately after kindling the Sre his friends proceeded to carry him into the room, and had just reached the door when tbe powder exploded, breaking tbe clock, stove, and window glass, into atoms aad starling from its place one cud of the house. But tbe carious part externally its appearance is not remarkably ostentatious. The interior finishings and decorations, however, ure very superb. In the main eutrauce, there is a vestibule, fit- led for the reception of ordinary visitors, and close by the staircase ascends through an elliptical opening toward a stained glass dome. Immediately beneath the latter, on a massive base, is Kiss's celebrated bronzo figureof the Shepherd attacked by a Panther, and among other bronze decorations are du- plicates of mantel ornaments possessed by Louis Napoleon. The mirrors are rery massive, ic curiously wrought frames; the ceilings are arched, in strong relief, with a ground work of water colors, and the prominent points tipped with The walls are to be laid over with satin, ia neavy folds. Tbe furniture is in 'a corres- ponding style of elegance, and consists, prin- cipally, of elaborately carved oak. A num- ber of articles are veneered with oaken crot- ches, in the most exquisite manner, sow to closely resemble choice varieties of marble. The library case is almost wholly of oak, and has a lofty arched ceiling, ventilated from the top, aud surrounded with casts of Tasso, Schiller, Goethe, and other celebrated per- sonages. Other apartments are provided for various amusements, and all are fitted up with a view to secure the greatest pos-- sible amount of bodily comfort. Probably tbe most elegant dwelling in tho city is that of M. O. Koberts, reputed to have cost in the neighborhood of 000. _ The residence of Moses Taylor is a dwel- ling fitted up in the most gorgeous style, not less than having been expended in four or five of the apartments. One of these was fitted up at a cost of from 525.- 000 to S30.0QO." We will venture to say, that the statement can be gainsaid, that within ten miles of New York there are thousands of humble cottages in which there is more real happiness than ia either of these splendid palaces.
