Pickpockets at Corry -A Heavy Loss.
On Wednesflay afternoon a gang of pickpockets operated very successfully at Corry, one of their victims losin.i? a diniond breastpin valued at ^500. Tlie transaction uccm-ed—nn—tlie eastern

From all the infoi'mation in my possession, iind from that wliich 1 have recently derived from the most reliable authority, I am induced to cherish the belief that personal animosity is surely and rapidly merging itstdf into a spirit of nationality, and th;it representation eonnecteil with a properly adjusted system of taxation will resultin a hannoni-ous restoration of the relations of the Slates to the national Union. The ih> port of Carl Siiniis is licrewith transmitted, as retpiested by the Senate. No report frem, the lion. John Cov«de has been received by tho President. The attention of the Senate is invited to the accompanying report of Lieut-(ieu..G,nuit, who recently made a tour of inspection through -several of the

Mr. T. did not discover his loss till after the train started. On arriving at Jamestown he telegraphed the Chief of Police at Corry, oflering a reward of $500 for the recovery of his property. It was a gift frorn a near relative, and more highly prized for its associations thai its intriuiiic.value,. . __________________________
Did you over meet any of my 'cchoe^l ^hat elegant lie called "good society" is full of them. They are the most graceful dancers at the Apollinea, tho. very best bouquet holders at the opera. They-never shock your darling prejudices. Oh, dear, niil^and tlicy niHist iipon agreeing with you in every
which nearly drives you crazy. They are of your nvind so entirely altogether that you, with your wildest propositions, can no -tpore startle them than you can kill an alligator with bird shot. 1Í you sht)uld tell them that you Avere about to make a throo inontha' journuy tu thoy would only
express a polite wish that the climate might agree %vith you I They assent -etenially -to cvcryttihig -yoirBay,-thcy fret your nerves and wear out your temper to that degree where it would give you unspeakable deliglit to Üing the tongs at their heads.
Good society has a pet. name for her masculine echo. Do you know what it is ? Whithersoever the echo in pantaloons goeth, he ia that most excruciatingly tiresome of all wretches, a .nice young man." My gentleman friend, as you value your earthlj' good name, never let your acquaintances speak of you as that VemarkabJe-for-nothing-in-particularest of all mankind —a. nice young man. Anything but t ha t. RatlTe Í- e ve ^^^^ le t them c alf yó^íí a Brigadier-General, if thej'will. Rather be a dog and bay the .moon. For a nice young man is the hollowest of all echoes.
The nice young man has his feminine counterpart. Did you ever think what a dead weight of inane mediocrity drags itself behind the expression, "an amiable young lady ?" If not, just do it now. Do people call you an amiable young lady ? It means that your Vvdiele martiil .existence has so far been very much like blanc mange without any sartce. Nota grain of spice; not a bit of either sweet or sour; not a drOp of the red wine of life in you. It means that you haven't an honest, decided opinion of yout'own about any subject in the world. That you are only a reilection in a lool^ng-glass of tho tastes, manners, and fashiona of those around you; a mere walking dressmaker's show figure, nothing more. It means that there is nothing bright and keen and glad in your nature,but that yon are dead and dull and commonplace to the lieart'fi core. Re a scnid, a hoyden, a flirt, if you will but for heaven's sake don't be an amiable young lady. I'd rather be called a
My echo is the person who "hasn't an cnemjMii the world." No wonder. Neither has a dead oak log.

There is another still worse. It is the literary echo, the puny Po1Iy-wants-sn-gar imitator of some leading writer. If a would-be .aspirant after literary hon ors hasn't wit enough to find a style of his own, lie- may take it for an infal'i-ble sign that he- at last has no divine calling to be an author. And if some highfalutui critic tells him that such and such a passage is worthy a Tennyson or a Carlyle, or some other great light in literature, let hifn know it for a dead certainty. An ape isn't a genius dior a parrot an original thinker.
Tho faculty oi inutation is a most useful one. It teaches a young gentle-m:in to smoke and swear, snd a yoitng lady to make "tatting" and to wear waterfalls, Rut I donbt if it ever made an author. j

A day or two after fiha received tho money, a,stranger called lato in the evening and desired to get logings for the hight.

A second man rushed in and fell dead by a second shot. The third appeared and was severely wounded by tho third shot, and turned and ran off, leaving a trace of blood behind Iiim. The men who bad been killed were blackcd, and when the black had been washed off thoir faces, Mrs. Heady recognised with horror her own soihindaw as one of the men, and the Other was a. near neighbor and friend.

Henry Wilson, the notorious burglar and murderer,wa8 executed at Geneseo, N. Y., at 2 o'clock this afternoon. He was conyicted of tho murder of Henry Dc.vdo at Portage, on the 16th day of May.

The wool will usually. coverall the cost of keeping during • year, and often that of fatting too. Taking this view, which is a fair one, no one can fail to perceive that mutton is the cheapest meat that can be raised, iSmall faiii lea can. salt and dry one or both hind quarters, or cook a quarter and eat it cold. A quarter of lamb after it has been cooked, may be kept ten or twelve days,-and^-still lie -good. . Farmers should learn to prepare their own meat, and not sell their animals to ^ bntcliers, wlio sell them~thDr-meat for
their own tables at exorbitaut prices» Furthermore, a great many people who,have only a garden or small farm, can often fatten a few sheep during the winter, and thus liave better meat« at a much cheaper rate than if they purchase M.-^AgricnUurist,

The London times mys: "There -can no Inriger be a doubt about the formidable growth of the cattle plague during tho present month. During that brief period it has been so rapidly and fatally disseminated that tlie prospect hahvbGcome very different fiom what it was a few weeks ago. When the commissioners issued thoir report at the end of October, it was obvious to .argue as it was argued that^ the. ravageii„of___the. plague, as then ascertained, constituted, upon the whole, a slighter infliction than would bo created by the suspension of all the cattle trafiic of the coini^ry. In the four months comprised tween the fittit outbreak of the dis-
ease and the report of tho coinmis sioners the total number; of cases barely exceeded fourteen tjiousand, white the deaths, from plagué and pole axe tógether, were only about twelve thousand.
This gave a mortality of only seven hundred a week upon an aggregate stock of horned cattle estimated at seven millions, and it was asked accordingly wliethersii^ justify the application of such a remedy as was proposed. . The question arose faij ly enough but of the facts as they then^ appeared and as hopds were entertained that we had seen the worst of.the plag.?ic,,,ai,any on, the sweeping measures of precaution proposed by tho conmiissipiicrs foimdlTo^greiiirTavor. ^Btit~ttie"^Hpect of things has beeii seriously changed by the returns of the month now expiring.

The very moment the animal begins to worry, that moment it begins to lose its flesh; but the rate of tliis loss has never been ascertained -it is certainly worthy of an investiga« tion-and can only l^ determined by trying the two modes, punctuality and irregularity, side by side^ under simi-,, -lar circnms^nces, and with the same amount of- food, for some weeks or months together,
There is one precaution to lie ob* served in connection with regular feeding, where some judgment is needed. Aidrauls eat m^ or fi'oity-than li» datnp audi warm weather. —Hence, if the same amount by weight is given at every feeding, they will not have enough when thé weath* er ts'cold, wd^ will be" when it is-wârm and-
