Early in the last century there lived In Dublin a famous conjurer whose name vas Harvey, and by no other name was 10 ever known to man. Nor did man sver know when or where he was born or died, and none of these facts or other of a social nature touching his life has yet been found on parish register. But Harvey's personal appearance was known to many. He was tall and round shouldered, pale faced and lynx eyed, and, as became a man who was given up to the itudlesof , the black art, never laughed —except, oho may presume, when he thought how easily tho world was hum- buggod. Harvey know*-all about the planets and their inhabitants, and through his disclosures we know that Mars, Mercury and Venus aro peopled by courtiers,.soldiers and the polite'world, who have nothing to do and lots of time to do it in, as they live for several thousand years. Free from sorrows as well as from cares, they pass their days 'in feasting and vary tho monotony of their existence by trips In aerial chariots between tbo three planets. In Saturn knaves only abound, and very common sort of folk are described on the directory of the moon. We shall know more about these things when the big Lick telescope Is set at work. . • Harvey,, like all well regulated disciples of the black art, rejoiced when he heard of the birth of a monster and wept when informed that a, promising babe had come into the world.— He had a liigh respect for the sun, and uncovered at mention of the name of that valuable body. He was sound and solid in the classics, and liberally patronized tho circulating libraries by hiring from them all books that had the stamp of learning. He was pious, moreover, though he went not to church. In politics his ideas wer.e mixed, or rather, like the hero of John Phoenix's story, ho had no politics. When Harvey paced the streets he trudged slowly along, carrying a long black etick, and, bent nearly double, his eyes fastened to the ground, talking to himself In a low tones; went his way, heeding no one though heeded by all. And this was hia picturesque attire: A long, hanging coat of good stuff, buttoned its entire length;, a broad slouch hat, a wide neck band with tassels, broad toed shoes, the latch- eta tied with stout twine, no waistcoat, and no gloves. TTIa biographer has recorded some of tho prophecies, among which are the following: In A. D. 6000 the tallest man will bo but five feet high; in A. D. 7GOO (these dates should be carefully noted in order that the verifications may bo observed) he will be reduced another foot la height; tkrough tha remaining BOO years of the world's existence—for in A. D. 8000 Proapero's prediction will bo fulfilled—be will bo cut down to two feet six Inches. It la interesting to know, too, that tho day Is ccnuisg when Mahomet will be considered aa Tho Prophet by a good part of the world beside Arabia and tho eaot, and hia standard will wave from China to Peru, and even float over Now York city.

Hcudder relates a case of Oriental justice that coiild hardly be outdone for uliarp and subtle discriminations. Four men, pai'tiierx in business, bought some cotton bales. That tho rata might not destroy the cotton, they purchased a cat. They agreed that each of the four should own a particular leg of tho cat; and each adorned with beads aiuV other ornaments the leg thus apportioned to him. The cat, by an accident, injured one of its legs. Tlie owner of that member wound about it a rag soaked in oil. The cut, going too near tho fire, set thu rag on lire, and, being in great pain, rimhed in among tlio cotton bales where slie was accustomed to hunt rats. ' The cotton thereby took fire and was burned up. It wan u total loss. Tho three oilier partners brought an action to recover the value of the cotton against the fourth partner who owned the particular leg of tbu cut. Tlie judge ex- ctnined the case and di'cidi'il Ilium "Tlio leg that had tlie oil rag on it was hurt; the cat could not use that leg—in fact, it held up that leg and ran with the, older three legs. The three unhurt legs therefore carried tlio lire to tho cotton, and aro alone culpable.' Thu. injured leg ia not to bo blamed. Thu tlireo partners who owned tlie tlireo k-gfi with which tho cat ran to thu cotton will pay the whole value of the bales to th? partner who was tlie proprietor of the injured Jeg."—Onco a \Vcu-k.
