Mr. John Roberts, while out hunt ing last fall, found a hornet nest 28 inches long and 40 inches in circum ference. He took it home and hune it up in the wood house. The other day he was looking at it when to his surprise he found the nest occupied by mice. A friend lately called upon the historian, Runke. in Berlin, and observed: "Well, Professor, I suppose you work as hard as ever in your old age." "Yes," replied the veteran, tenderly: "my wife is dead now, you see, and I have less annoyance and can accomplish more." A man will carry five hundred dollars in his vest pocket, but a woman needs a morocco portinonnaie as larue as a fist, and too heavy to carry in the pocket, to escort a til ty cent script, a recipe for niakiou jelly-cake, and two samples of dress goods down town and back, every pleasant afternoon.

The saucy Titer soon appeared and grumbled at evervth ng in the stable except S:im, who looked too big'.-md resolute to insult By .-.nd by the smart turnout bowled away; the landlord bowed, and thanked Mr. Rapid tor his patronage; and Sam remained more or less absent all the day. In less than the time he had fixed. Fly- way Hall wasafuin the scene of Mr. Hammer's toil. Aijain all that valuable furniture, pictures, wines. etc., went to the highest bidder, and Mr. Rapid disappeared from view. Some time alter a f?:iunt, emaciated man kuocked at Sam's door. Of ; course we know who it was no one else than Rapid, broken, weary, dying. He had no friends; tho-e who had helped to ruin him were scattered every one to his own, nnd uo one cared lor poor Jack Rapid s soul. So he bethought him ol the kind-hearted-Old hostler, who had belrietnled hiu in the adversities of his youth, and had given him the best of advice in his mad career of prosperity. In the house of that good Samaritan poor Jack Rapid breathed his last, conscious of his folly, and taught by Sam to go as a penitent to the Cross, in which the broken-hearted find rest and hope. And when he meets a young man given to loose and lavish ways, he contriTes to conluct him some quiet evening to tho church ard, where besides Ripid's grave, he oints the moral which the prodigal's short lite : supplied; and often so sharply that several young men can thankfully date the abandonment of their follies from the still and solemn hour when old Sim's words seemed to go into their very souls, ana made them con- I.lnrtley Mnrrny. As many spoke of Robin Hood who never shot with his bow. so many hear of Lindley Murray who know nothing of him but that he cotupjsed a book of Kngiish grammar. He was an American native ot Pennsylvania and realized a competency at New York, partly as a ban ister and partly as a merchant. The necessities of health obliged him to remove to En gland, where he spcut the last forty years of his protracted life at Hold- near jcork, a teeble invalid, but crate. ietohrd enough 4o stock a farm; yet . resigned and happy. Besides his well- my iora oniy paia nis creunors six- known Liiammar, he wrote a toofc on aud-nincneiice on the pound. Mr. Rapid seemed rather disconcerted by these remarks. It was not pleasaut to think of poor Lord Oakes flouudering in the deep waters of shame and ruin; but 31r. Ripid laughed the thought away, and g.ving his white beaver a j iunty toss, he look out n cigar and beg in to smoke. "Well, but, bum, continued Mr. Itipid, "will you leave this moldy old inn and live with me? For auld lang syne we'll take a cup o kindness yet, and say, "Good wages and light work.' By the look of things you must be doing a seedy bu-iness here. My pair seem to be the only horses you've had in the stable to day. Come, now, out with the secret! How many nags have bitten your corn since last Wednesday a week ago? Why," said Mr. Rapid, laughing at his own conceit, "you've cot your hands in your trowscrs pockets, as if they were at home there, and had nothing else to do!" Aud Mr. Rapid tittered away at his owu wit. ' Never mind," said Sam, somewhat huffed at the insolent allusion to the declining fortunes'of the old"Angel.'' but pulling his hands out of his pockets at the same time. "Never mind, sir, we are doing well enough for my contentment, and I must decline with thanks your well-meant offer to find me easy work and good pay at Flyaway Hall." "Well, every man to lire tasle !"" exclaimed Mr. Rapid; "But remember, Sam, in spite ol your refusal, which is rather affronting, 1 mu.-t say Flyaway Hall will be always open to you. When you have got to your last shilling, I'll be your friend for the sake of old times. I can always do with an extra hand, and I think of increasing my stud. One knows, you see, so many good fellows, and one likes to Bee their happy faces about one, and they are generally as poor as rats; so I have to mount them all, and the rogues are not content unless they have the best horses and are in at the death." "Ah,'" sai-2 Sam. turning away his face and speaking low, ht y won't be in at your death, depend upon it." "My death? - What do you mean ?" asked Mr. Rapid, rather sharply. "I mean, sir, your rrin, which, if all you say is true, is not very far distant. Your friends will suck you dry, like the oranges you used to be so tond of when you could get them, and then they will leave you. Fljaway Hall will want Mr. Hammer again, firobably in a year or two, and if 1 eave the old inn on the moor.another will step into my shoes, and when I want them again, I shall have to ask in vain. No, Mr. Rapid; I'm not a belting man, but I'll wager a crown you are in the court paying your angry creditors so much on the pound before I have to part with my Pitt guinea."

He was a man of mild and temperate nature, entirely beloved by ad connected with him. In a series of autobiographical letters, he gives statement as to the nioder.ttion of his desires, well worihy ol being brought under general not fee: "My views aud wishes with regard to property were, in every period oi my lite, contained within a vcrv mod eratc compass. I wis early persuaded that, though a competence is vital to content,' 1 ouht uot to annex to that term the idea ol much property. I determined that when I should acquire enough to enable me to main tain and provide for my family in a re-peetab;e and moderate manner, aud tins according to real and rational not imaginary and fantastic wants ' and a little to share for the necessities ' of others, 1 would decline the pursuit ' of property, and devote a great part of ! my time, in some way or other, to the i beneht ot my tt-ilow creatures, witli;ti j the sphere of my abilities to serve 1 them. 1 leiceived that the desire ol great pose.-eioDs generally expands with the gradua aeequisit:on and full attainment of them; and I imagined that charity and a ecm-rous applica tion do not sufficiently correspond with the mcrease ot property. 1 thought, too, that procuring great wealth has a tendency to produce an elated independence of mind, little connected with that humility which is the ground of all our virtues; that a busy and anxious pursuit ol it often excludes views and reflections of infinite importance, and leaves but little time to acquire that treasure which would make us rich indeed. I was persuaded that a truly sincere mind could be at uo loss to discern the just limits between a sate and competent portion and a dangerous prolusion of the good things of hi These views of the subject I reduced to practice; and terminated my mer cantile concerns when I had sicquired moderate competency. Uook o Days. The newspaper is the handmaid o civiiization. No family can maintain its place in society without it. The man needs it for information about markets and politics; the woman needs it as a diversion from her tiouse-hold cares and family duties; the young need it for both amusement and instruction. Thousands of families can take but a single newspaper; and that, one should be commended to their consideration which best meets all their needs. all was over, she confronted a los? such as has been et perienced by few women. For the next few weeks it wis doubtful whether she would ever enieree from the shadow of death in which ;he lay. Rut everything the did or said 'n that delirium of de-pair wickedly and shameluliy used against her j.fterwards. It was the duty ot the country, out ot regard to its own h-iiorand dignity, to provide for her future.

Sumner forced a bill through Congress civing her tho pi til u t pension of i?3,000. it only passed after malicious and scurrilous opposition, in the course of wh'eh her enemies luoted every utterance and act which had proceeded, alter her troubles. from her disordered bruin. She was entitled to the gen'lest and most tender consideration from every de cent man; but she was attacked by Congressmen and vilified by a portion of the press, as if t-he had been an able-bodied politician, courting votes and criticism. There is no doubt that this treatment had its cfleet hi preventin? her recovery from the great shock which had shattered her lite. The death of her young boy, whom she idolized, tilled up the measure of her sorrows, and finished the wreck of her intellectual faculties. As long as it was possible her son, the worthy inheritor of his father's character, bore with a touching patience and devotion the consequences of this misfortune. Rut it became evident at last that to prevent worse disasters the unfortunate laiy must be put under restraint, aud the pro - ceedings in court were taken, with which our readers are familiar. Ihe ittempt upon her own life the next day was a terrible confirmation of the justice ol the decree of" the court.

We deem it Dot intrusive to say, also, that the only surviving son ot .Mr. Lincoln deserves, in this calamity, the respect and consideration of every one. He has borne himself always with irreproachable dignity and decorum.

The woods across the pond echoed back the sound. Paugus trembled as he applied his powder- horn to the priming. Chamberlain struck his guu breech violently on the ground the rifle "primed itself ho aimed and his bullet whistled through the heart of Paugus. He fell, and as he went down, the ball from the mouth of his ascending rifle tomhed the hair upon the top of Ch imherlain's head, and passed ofl into the bordering wilderness, without avenging the death of its dreadful master. Chamberlain, after recovering from the shock ol such a fearful and imminent encounter, cast a look upon the fallen savage. J he paleness ot death h:id come over his copper-colored forehead. He seized upon hi rifle, bullet-pouch, and powder-horn, left him on the lealy sau J,and sought again the lessened ranks of the white men, as they wearily defended them selves against the encircling savages He shouted to them of the fall of Paugus.. The Indians looked about them the tall figure of their chief was nowhere in sight. In grief and despair they ceased their lire, and withdrew into the woods, leaving Chamberlain, and the few who survived the conflict, to retrace their steps to the distant settlement.

He was elected President of the road July 3. 18-18, and by dint of p. effort and untiring energy of diameter, rnised nearly a million of dollars in subscription for the completion if the road.

Vice President Wilson, who passed through Toptka, Kan., a few days ago, is thus "summed tip." personally, by the Commonwealth of that city: "Mr. Wilson looks like an honest man, who, while he does uot pride himsell on his having started in life a shoemaker, is not as-hamed of that fact, and still entertains a brotherly feeling fur men who work with their hands for their daily bread." The other day a man in Milwaukee found- four boys playing cards on the hay-mow, and he was proceeding to give them "fits," when one of them spoke up and said: "We wan't playing kcerds. Tom Lester's mother is dead, and we were up here showing him the pictures ou the kcerds so he would not feel lonesome."

A Chicago poet, upon hearing that Neilsnu was about to erect cow sheds upon her Peoria lots, has burst forth into the following verse: "Christine, Christine, thy milking do the morn and eve between, and not by the dim religious light of the fitful kerosene; for the cow may plunge, and the lamp explode, and the fire-fiend ride the gale, and shriek the knell of the burning town in the glow ot the moulten pail!" A lady was telling a iriend from the country of a very grand party she had given recently. "We had two generals, one judge, a popular author, and a play writer.' "Yes," chimed in her wicked son, "and there was a deputy sheriff too. who said he wanted to see dad, and they went out before supper, and dad hasn't come b:ick yet." When that youth went to school the next dav with his head all tied up, he told the boys he had a dreadful toothache. There are seventy little waifs in the Indiana Orphan Asylum, aud they stick like little waifers. ed by hostile Indians and ravenous beasts of prey, he feared uo danger and felt no harm.

He was tall higher than the tallest Indian strong tour of them with their tomahawks, were no match lor him with his heavy hatchet, lie was swift ol foot he could outrun tho moose in 'full trot. Artf ul and curi-uing, he entrapped the Indinu iu his ambush, and surpassed him in traversing the pathless wilds. The Iu-dians passed autious1y and harmlessly by the dwelling ot Chamberlain; and a score of them would lie still when they watched in ambush, and suffer him to go on unmolested, less their rifles might miss his body, and bring him in vengeance upon them; for he valued them as lightly as did Samson the men ol Askolon. Around the shores of tho largest lake in New Hampshire, there dwelt, at that time, a powerful tribe of Indians. Their chief was Paugus. He was a savage, of gbtm size and rtveugth, swift, cunning, deadly with his rifle and tomahawk, and cruel, vengelul beyond the native vengeance ol the Indians. He was the terror of man, woman aud child, along the frontiers, and even among the small ! cities on the very edge of the sea. landsol soldiers had ott"n penetrated to the shores of this lake, to find out the retreat of this terrible savage, and. if possible, to iday or take hi.n prisoner. But he was too cunning, aud always eluded their search; though at one time he came so ne8r that he saw the blaze of his wigwam, as they set it ou fire, snd the smoke of it curling among the tree tops that were theu above his head. Olten had Chamberlain sought, in the Indian battles he was engaged in, to find out the form of Paugus. to make him the mark of his rifle, or to encounter with his hatchet the tomahawk of this fearful warrior. But they never had chanced to meet, although Paugus had learned of his tribe the character aud prowess of Chamberlain. A small body of brave men, under the commaud of Captain Lovel!, were on their way through the wilderness, iu pursuit of the Indians, and by chance passei near the dwelling ot Chamberlain. He saw them, and learned the object o their nnrch, he joined them, and was considered by them all as a great addition to the strength of their devoted little band. They traversed the woods, and encountered an" overwhelming bodv ot Indians near Lovell's Pond. This Dentti of S. H. I.'lloiiinirrtten. Claclnnati Commercial, May 27. How familiar this name, and how familiar the living man was on out streets only a short time ago, but S. S L'Hommedieu is dead gone "to j ir? the innumerable caravan that move-to ihA mysterious realm," and man friends will mourn his departure even though he lived the allotted time. Mr. L'Hommedieu had, for some time, been suffering from asthma. Ou last New Year's Day he caught a very severe cold, and was abed for a few days, but was soon able to walk about and to eoine into the city on business. Sincv thai time he whs more or less ill with the old com plaint, which, under the burden of many years, often rendered him help less. Rut with a naturally robust body and a remarkable buoyancy o sp rit, he almost seemed to defy dis ' ease and advancing age. On Thursday last, Mr L'Hommedieu attended ihe Ladies' Ceutennia: Fair, and on the following day started to New York City, to visit his stepsister, Mrs. John W. Ellis. When he len homo he was leeling very well. But, under advice of his physician, he was ol the belief, and expressed it. that in the event ot his experiencing a severer attack of his complaint than those through which he had passed, he would not survive. From New York City he visited West Point Academy, to. see his grandson. Dis-, patches to friends state that while there, on Tuesday afternoon, after a hearty dinner and a long walk, he was taken unwell. lie grew worse until ten minutes before 12 o'clock that night, when he died. Mr. L'Hommedieu leave? a wile, ir declining health, to whom he wa.' married forty five years ago. Hit surviving children are four sons and four daughters, all of whom are married except the three youngest sons. The sons are Stephen S., jr., Charles and Louis, of this city, and Harry, of Milwaukee. Of his daughters are Mrs. General Iiuggles, whose hus band, of the regular army, is stationed at Omaha, and 3Irs. J. J. Slocuin. of Milwaukee. Mrs. Geo. St. Ledgar, of Chicago, is another daughter. Mr. L'Horammedieu's sister. Mrs. M. M. Britton, lives af Hamilton, Ohio. Stephen S. L'Hommedieu was born in Sag Harbor, Long Island, New York, on the 5th of January, 180(5, and was a lineal descendant of a Huguenot family which came to this country as fugitives, after thft battle of Rochelle, at which Richelieu boasted of having engaged the stalwart English. His lather removed to this city in 1810. and engaged in mercantile business, but died in 1813, leaving five children. Previous to his death he bought a tract of pasture, now built over, and bounded by Seventh, George, Mound and Central avenue a piece of property retained by the fanidysand divided between them in 1828. At the age of twelve years, the sub-l'ect of this sketch was sent to learn business with his uncle, John C.

Few people have any idea of the extent of forest land in Germany, and most imagine that of the Black Forest little is left except a tradition and a conventional blister of wood'and, so named. On the contrary, in Hanover alone there are 900,000 acres of wood under State management, while nearly a fourth part of the area ot Prussia ia in forest, although half ot that is in private hands. As is well known, the forest administration in particular districts ha long been famous, especially in Thuringia and the Hartx mountains. In North Germany generally the responsibilities are allotted in districts among a carefully organized body of officers, presided over by a forest director. The London Garden. One of the saddest a things about human nature is, that a man may guide others in the path of life without walking in it himself; that he may be a pilot and yet a cast-awav.
