A gentleman who, twelve years ago, passed on from a series of visits among the aristocracy of birth in England to be the guest of several members of the aristocracy of wealth, said that he was much impressed by the signs of money in the latter case as compared with the former. In many of the stately homes of England faded damask and thread bare carpets may be found in conjunction with beautiful old elate and fine pictures. Everything is of good quality, hut it is frequently well worn out; whereas, in tbe houses of the great money magnates the upholstery is new, fresh and resplendent, for that ready money which my lord and the 'squire so often lack is at hand. The aristocracy of birth have, however, had hitherto at least one signal advantage as compared to the others permanency. The fleeting character of even the most splendid commer-cialfortunes is bemgpainfully exemplified just now in the north of England. " The home of Air. Vaughan, of Bolchow & Vanghan whose father bequeathed him a palace in which the smoking-room cort lSO,00u and a single mantel-piece S10,0CO was in the market last month, and three weeks later a fruitless attempt was made to sell Gray Towers, the princely seat of another great Cleveland iron-master. The house had cost 250,(X)0, but only 8150,000 was bid for it, inclusive of the estate, 390 acres. Onlv those who have seen such places can realize bow completely they illustrated the auctioneering phrase, "defiance of expense." To fancy and to realize were one. These great northern commercial persons very rarely liave houses in London, and, unles3 in Parliament, seldom make any' effort to "get into society" there, but live in a world of their own around the seat of their business. The Modem French Sorcerer. The Paris correspondent of tbe Boston Journal writes : I spoke of the unhappy fate which befell the individual who was supposed to be a sorcerer in the old days, and how he was burned. The modern sorcerer fares a little better, but bis way is still hard. The courts in one of the departments have just sentenced to fifteen months' imprisonment a man who was making a living by goins about among the peasantry, persuading them that they were sick, and tfien pretending to cure them by means of sorcery. His processes were extremely simple, such as placing a little snuff or tobacco on a person's head, or hanging a charm about the neck. He was very successful until he fell in with an old peasant who lost his temper and had him arrested. In this case the sorcerer had asked a feet of twenty francs, but the peasant said he had no money. "But you have some ducks or chickens that you can give,'' said the sorcerer. "Not for you." answered the peasant. "Ah! if that is the way that you treat me," said the sorcerer, "I am going to enchant you. Now, if you move ten steps from where vou stand ' you will oe a dead man." The- peasant moved, however, far enough to make a complaint to the Mayor, and the unlucky sorcerer is in durance vile. His methods of procedure were about as ordinary and vulgar as those used by the negro magicians and quack doctors in our Southern States. RETUitNED to Her First Love. Schoharie County has produced another curious elopement case. Last Jlarch John Casper, a married and well-to-do farmer, eloped from Cobleskill with the wife of a farmer named Earls, also well off iu worldly goods and the father o interesting children. Casper took something like $2,000 in money with him. Nothing was known of the whereabouts of the runaways, and the matter had ceased to be neighborhood gossip until last week, when interest in the affair was re-awakened by the sudden return of the woman in company with her husband. It seems that a detective tracked the pair into Canada; the woman has grown cold of her second-hand love, and being placed m communication with her husband, ave Casper the slip, after pocketing $1,700 of his money and leaving him with $12: she went to 2uagara Falls, met Earls, fell upon his bosom, and handed him Casper's money, and the now reconciled pair returned to their classic shades of Cotileskill. leaving Casper completely undone.

An Italian Stone-Cutter's Queer Experiences and Connection With the Stewart Body C3se. Inspector G. TV. DOks, of the Second Inspection District, has been quietly working on the case since last November, and his experiences J. have been highly interesting, ran, oi mese hinge on the following story, in regard to which Mr. Daks is non-committal Shortly after the robberv in St. Mark's Church-yard Judge Hilton was visited by Giuseppe F. Sala, an Italian sculptor, who now has a studio at No. 141 West Thirty-fourth street, on the site of the old Gospel tent. At the time referred to his ofSce and marble-vard were at No. 131 West Thirtv-fourth street. Sala speaks English poorlv, and when he' visited Judge Hilton he" tried his patience by his in-abilitv to talk as quickly and distinctly as the Judge, who is at times impatient, desired. Sala, however, tcM part of his story to Judge Hilton, and the rest to a person in his confidence. It was an extraordinary one, and its entire verification involved the expenditure of a large sum. It was, however, considered of sufficient importance to warrant an outlay of about $75, to enable Sala to go to Troy and point out some persons, who, according to him, were implicated in the grave robbery. Sala went to Troy but failed to do what he promised. He said that he was erlv protected, and that what he was doingi demanded better guarantees of reward than he had from Judge Hiltou. Sala returned to New York in a grumbling mood, and Judge it:,. . . l : l . . - .' t ' ! - him, sent him to Inspector "Dilks, who, after repeated interviews, learned what he was disposed to tell of his history, and heard his version of the robbery of the Stewart vault. Sala's story up to a certain point is ampiy corroborated. He was the author of- the stone hoaxes, the Cardiff and New Hampshire giants. He laughs when he tells the history of their, imposture, which has been frequently published. Sala was backed by several persons, who had made up a pool to defray expenses, and they were . connected with others with whom Mr. Sala had ng dealings. In 1-S76 Mr. Sala met several people who, according to him, were implicated in the stealing of Mr. Stewart's body. One was a woman of rare beauty, who was the banker of the clique and controlled it The others were men, three in number. The woman has a notorious history, and was, and is yet, controlled by a man who is notorious, but not criminally so, although some time since he got into a scrape in a city in this State by attempting to Jalfan impure woman in an evil resort. Sala, in . addition to being a clever stone-cutter and a good anatomist, says he possesses the secret of rtrifying; bodies or bofcs, and that be is as adept with a corpse dismteired after centuries as with a subject dead only a few honrs. The- woman end her companions soon showed Sala that he could talk freely, as they knew of his connection with the giants, and that he was willing to make money. They discussed various schemes based on the dkittterment of bodies, or the substitution of the petrified body of . a human being for that of some celebrity. The subject of resurrectine bodies for a ransom was also touched, upon and there was some talk in regard to visiting Ireland for the purpose of disinterring stone subjects to be prepared by Sala. They parted, to meet again- in a few days, and finally Mr. Sala agreed to do as he was bidden for a round sum in advance, all expenses and a contingent reward. Then the plans were matured. The first scheme was to steal the remains of the traitor Benedict Arnold, which are interred in a quiet little graveyard in London. Thither they went, and as soon as possible made preparations for the resurrection. The police, however, were more vigilant than in the Seventeenth Precinct, New York, and they gave up the attempt after many weeks' watching, owing to the surveillance they were placed under. They then separated and landed in Ireland. Here they decided on two schemes. One was to disinter a stone image, to be called the true St. Patrick, on the property of the Earl of Leitrim ; the other to dig up on the lands of a Mr. Coleman, at the' Giant s Causeway, the petrified' body btPinnMc-i Cool, the Giant of the Causeway. The first scheme was abandoned, owing to a quarrel about the land with the Earl's agent The second scheme was partly successful. The Giant was unearthed, but the Irish press, backed by scientists, made short work of him, and the plotters returned to America. On the voyage "other plans were discussed, among others the resurrection of Gen. Putnam's remains. Arrived in New York the discussion was renewed, and Sala avers that the feasibility of robbing the Stewart vault was canvassed. The clique met several times in Sala's presence, and the Stewart matter was brought up on each occasion. Sala does not give precise dates, but he brings them down to within a few weeks of the grave robbery, when he made a demand for money, which was not immediately complied with, and a coolness arose between him and his lady banker. When he heard of the grave-robbery he fixed the crime on her and Eer assotiates, one of whom, by a slip of the tongue, Sala designated as a Mr. Ford, and determined on getting Judge Hilton's reward. Inspector Dilks heard Sala's story, the substance of which, so far as it refers to the Stewart affair, i3 given above, patiently. Finding that Sala told the truth about many matters, Mr. Dikes endeavored to trace ths persons that Sala denounced as the resurrectionists, and discovered that the man Ford, and the woman who was' banker to the cliaue, lived in the neighborhood of Tfov, and that they were alert and had persons, who kept' them well informed, in this city. In this work the Inspector was aided by members of the Troy police force. Mr. Dilks kept Judge Hilton informed of what he was doing, but received little encouragement, and last March, finding that were he to spend any money to continue what he had done, it would be at his own risk, he, to use his own words, "let the matter rest" As before stated, Mr. Dilks does not comment on Sala's story or the discoveries that resulted therefrom. Mr. Sala has been talked to" recently about it, but he is uncommunicative and says that when he again takes a hand in it he will succeed, bnfc that will ha wlim .TnHm Hilton furnishes him with money sufficient to rfafm 11 J tj; . . ueiraj mi expenses, including t hose necessary to secure to him (Sala) personal Drotection aiidJ. ample guarantees of the published reward for arantees of the published reward fori me apprenension ot the robbers in case of success. New York Times. A Trunk Explodes In a DapoU A singular explosion occurred at the depot 01 the Boston & Providence Railroad at 4 o clock yesterday afternoon, and the escape from fatal results to two human lives was almost miraculous. John , Coles, a transit express messenger, called for a trunk at the inward baggage room. Presenting the check; the baggagemaster showed bim the trunt and' Coles took hold of it by the handle, and was in the act of dragging it to his wagon when an explosion, which resembled the discharge of a cannon, took place, reverberating through' the tram-house and causing a momentary panic among the passengers. Coles was blown into "T. ,a , '-jstAnce of twenty feet, and alighted upon terra Anna 'with only the -strap of the trunk in his hand.' A little boy who was passing at ths time was blown across the street, being picked up insensible. A crowd of people soon gathered, and investigation showed that there was nothing but small pieces left of the trunk, which had been filled with gunpowder shot cartridges and other sportiug materiais,, including a douMe-rmrrT!l ,nf--i...i J- Are ?aa? o the explosion is supposed to be the ignition of theoowdnr m-rn -Un charge ofa cartridge.

How Thl Extraordinary Mixture Killed a Tonus Woman. Pi"rkl and milfe- were the staple of her diet, with lemonade and ice-creams, on that hot af ternoon, and yet the unhappy young woman, v. . - . . j " 1" a .1. - after much uneasmess dedared I she ( wasj poisoned. So possibly she was, but not m her way ot loosing at it l ney oiamea tne picmca and the grocer, and tried hard to find copper 'dye in -the one and collnsion in the other. While thev were about it they might as well have subpenaed the ice man and the cow, the apothecary who sold the lemons, ahd the confectioner who got up' the ' ice-creams. There was death in all their tubs, or rather in the mixture that this extraordinary young person in New York appears to have made for herself from them "all. Anybody who undertakes to devour four and a half good-sized cucumber pickles after a day of indulgence among ice creams, lemonade and iced milk, is simply inventing an infallible form Of suicide. It is not on record that this girl was tired o? life. She had probably gone to a good public school and had learned all about the Drimarv colors and the rules of arithmetic. But sha had not learned the chemistry of common things, nor what sort of foods will agree jn the stomach and what not A little of this sort of common sense people are expected to pick up.for themselves. Bat it is more valuable and necessary than many other thints, : musical notes, for instance, that Ithey are not left to pick up, but are taught with great assiduity. The brute creation, except, perhaps, the civilized one in the Zoo, who may be overfed and tempted, but dumb anim-ilg at large seem to have it without picking up. How to get some lessons in the public schools!' that . shall bring boys and girls up to tbe level of the dumb animals in this knowledge would be a more profitable subject for educational associations than some of the topics discussed last week. : The young woman in New York died of her folly or appetite, or ignorance or all three. The war of acids and ices was as bad or worse than copper poisoning, in her case ; and yet for a hot day's diet, any one of the articles was good and refreshing in its wav ; and the cucumber eaters would insist on the pickles being included in the wholesome list How to inix foods and how to choose diet is more important than the choice of colors, and yet every school girl nowadays can tell what colors agree together and what not The New York girl's ignorance onlv took herself out of life ; but how many mothers are there who know no better, and who help the hot weather this season to kill their children bjj reckless feeding. A sip of beer and a taste of ereen apple, when a sick child cries for it, or any other unsuit-iable food, may stop its crying, it is true, but :often in a sad way enough that makes the mother cry. Philadelphia Ledger. A Xervous People. Excellent medical authority asserts that the constant strain of business, added to the dryness of our climate, has so changed the constitution that it is impossible for us to do what our fathers did before us safely. "W e are," says Dr. Beard, "ten degrees more sensitive to cold than they were," as the cases of sunstroke and heat prostration bear evidence. There is an immense increase in neuralgia, sick headache, hay fever, nervous exhaustion, and especially in dyspepsia, in itself the potent source of a host of physical and mental irritants and distresses. . Now with such systems as we have, high-strung, nervous and irritable, the use of stimulants cannot be otherwise than injurious. It is impossible to use them as they were used in the days gone by. There is hardly a man of middle age who does not remember that hospitality ana a sideboard of wines and liquors were synonymous terms. Both men and women drank freely, and professional men and the clergy indulged in the same habit It would be folly to say that what is a vice now was a virtue then, but it can be safely asserted that people did indulge then without the same injurious effects that follow the practice now. The predominant nervousness of the present time had not been developed. Our ancestors could drink freely, smoke extravagantly, indulge to excess in tea and coffee, and yet live to a serene old age ; now it is simply impossible. True, the traffic in ardent spirits has enormously increased, but so has the population. True, people yet drink to excess, - but they do not do it with impunity. Circumstances have altered cases, and two-third of the present terrible effecte flowing from intemperance are due to the changed physiological conditions of the human race, and especially in this country, where people are strung up to a tension that will no more allow a tree use of strong drinks than a barn filled with straw will permit the introduction of fire.
