HOUBB. ;SMjisoFtttD, III., March 8—Following th« reading of the jouvnalin theHotoscMr. Merritt asked unanimous consent to reconsider the vote by which his resolution offered last week, to prohibit the introduction of bills after March 7, was laid on the table. Consent was granted, and Mr. Miller offered a substitute providing that no bills be printed until acted upon by the proper committees, and BO recommended either, for passage or for special consideration by ? the j House. The substitute was 'H'dhpted. ;, t ,Mfi Crafts, from the Committee '-oti Civil Service, repprted back the Civil Service bill, which provides for the filling of appointive officer of the State municipal governments by competitive .-v examination, and recommended its passage. Mr. Fuller, of the Railroad Committee, reported back with recommendations for passage the bill requiring railroad companies to furnish safety heating appliances for passenger coaches, and the bil\ requiring common carriers to give notice to consignees of the arrival of goods .withm twenty-four after their arrival. Mr. Miller notified the House that he would present an amendment tomorrow to change the hour of opening the sessions from 10to 9 o'clock. Mr. Fuller gave notice that he would offer an amendment to provide for the holding of afternoon ses- ' •ions for the purpose of taking up bills 6n the second reading. On motion of Mr. Fuller, the second reading of bills was made a special order. The Age of Consent bill was read, .and the • ommittee's amendment changing the minimum term of imprisonment for male offenders from three to one year was adopted. An amendment offered by Mr. McKinlay, changing the age of males to 16, the same as the age of females as specified in the bill, was adopted. Toe House then a.ljourned. 8ENA1B.

What True Merit Will Do, The unprecedented sale of Bosaheo's German Syrup within a tew years, has astonished the world. It is without doubt tho safest and best remedy ever discovered tor tho speedy and effectual cure of Coughs, Colds and tho severest Luna: troubles. It acts on an entirely different principle from tho usuttl pro- sorlptioua given by physicians, as it does not dry up a cough and leave the disease still in the system, but on the contrary removes the cause of the trouble, heals tbe parts nffeoiod and leaves them in a purely healthy condition. A bottlo kept In tho house for use when the disease* make their appearance, will gave doctor's bills and a long spell of serious Illness. A trial will convince you of those foots.

By what strange and mysterious psychological mqehnuipm doos the swift lenrn that the period for migration has actually arrived P Simply, I believe, by a natural see-saw, dependent only on the alternations of the seasons. Foi when the swift is not in Grout Britain he is off on his other alternative residence in Cape Colony. As some people, keep .up a house lu England and a winter villa at Cannes or Mentouo, so thu swift hits always a summer nest in Europe and a winter nest In temperate South Africa. Or, rather, they are each in their own time summer nests' alike; for, of course, whenever it is winter here it is sunny midsummer in the southern hemisphere. Unwise nd- mirers of tho swift hare ventured boldly to assert that lie knows when cold weather is coming, and therefore goes away from England in autumn before it arrives. When men sjxjak so to yon beliove them not. This is nonsense (with all duo deference to its pro- pounders); the swift knows not when it will be cold, but when it is cold—a much easier matter—like, all tho rest of us. Tho reason be leaves so much earlier than our other summer migrants is simply because food fails him. There is nothing miraculous iii knowing when you are hungry; tho merest infant woll knows that much. The cold upper air begins to feel tho chilling ef- fttot of autumn long before tho basking lowland meadows, and when the supply of tlies , falls short, in tho high circles where swifts habitually- move, the swifts arc prompted by an inner monitor (other than conscience) to flit southward. So they make tracks for Africa in a formed body, devouring the remaining insects as they go, and, in tin; words of tho poet, otherwise applied, "swallow, swallow.flying south." At thu same time I do not deny that the swift ia a bird of delicate constitution,'and that a marked aversion to cold for its own sake Is one of his most obvious personal characteristics, A member of an essentially tropical fmix'ly, ho visits tho northern and southern temperate regions only during tho very height of their slimmer season, and probably loiters long ou the way, breaking tho. journey in Morocco and the "Soudan," like those -wiso invalids who leave Egypt, or Algeria early in February and only roach tho admiralty pier at liover when the English spring 1ms fairly reached tbo summit of May hill. Thou in autumn lie is off again about tlu. miildlo of August, and if by any chance a firw stragglers linger on too 1:U« In Soptemlwr they aro not un- frequently overtaken and numbed by tliD liist frost, in which case they fall bulplinsly llultoring on tli.o unfamiliar ground, and uro Ictt, to tho cruel tender merries of the village children.— Cornhill Manuzinc.
