Special attention jrlven to tiie designing and building of COURT HOUSES and PUBLIC BUILDING 3. In doing the same amount of work of the same kind. In Magdeburg, Germany, a widow of seventy recently married her seventh husband. This unusual circumstance naturally recalls the question of the Sadducees; whose wife of them all will she be? A man in Portage county, Ohio, has scirruosis of the liver. He has been tapped forty times in eighteen mouths, and yielded between six and seven barrels of water. He would be better than a camel to travellers in the desert. Keverdy Johnson has been photographed recently with a group of his new English friends. The artist is supposed to have had some difficulty in getting a distinct picture on account of the constant shaking of Mr. Johnson's hand. Melbourne, Australia, is badly drained and during the heavy rains is dangerous, numerous instances being on record of children being drowned in the raging gutters and their bodies being carried out to sea and irrecoverably lost. Lesseps, of Suez canal fame, is a veritable iconoclast; he actually wants now to destroy the classic, heroic, poetic and historic peninsula of Greece by putting a canal across the Isthmus of Corinth, thus making an island of the peninsula. The obelisk in the Place de la Concorde in Paris, is said to be decaying. It withstood the climate during thirty centuries in Egypt, whence it was transferred, but under the action of the weather in Paris it is beginning to crumble and pulverize. Miss Louisa M. Alcoft. who wrote the most successful and the most original juvenile book of the last season, has already completed the manuscript of the se-qael, which is to carry the fortunes of her 'Little Women" to their proper dramatic conclusion. An Omaha paper says that "the scene last night at a mass meeting in the Academy of Music, in one of the passages of Mr. Train's speech, where, on bended knee, he took an oath to devote his energies, fortune and life to making Ireland free, beggars all descriptive powers." It is the fashion now to sneer at and run down everything new that Lord Lyt-ton writes. Whether it be because he is a Lord or because he don't write as weil as formerly, or because tastes have changed and he has not, we shall not undertake to decide, but certainly he was once the most popular living author and now is by no aatans so. The famous poisons of the Borgias were very simply concocted. With a few cents' worth of arseniate of soda any one may manufacture a quart of them without claiming to be considered an eminent chemist. The poison employed by and the proudre de tuectisitn were merely arsenious acid, the effects of which vary with the manner of administering it. The Philadelphia Ledger savs The following vessels cleared from this port during the past week with petroleum Bark Ann and Alice, for Bilboa, with 91,000 gallons; brig Van Horn, for Antwerp, with 114.S03 and brig W. II. Bigelow, for Cork, with making a total of 203,007 gallons. There are now loading and chartered in the same trade ten barks. The police of Paris recently arrested a young man who wa3 drunk and beating people over the head at the station house. He proved to be William Alexander Louis Stephen Hamilton Douglas, Duke of Hamilton, Marquis of Hamilton, Marquis of Douglas, Marquis of Clydesdale, Earl of Angus, Earl of Arran, Earl of Lanark, Baron Hamilton, Baron of Aven, Polmont, Machausiure and Innerdale, Baron of Aber- nethy and Jedburgh Forest, Duke of Bran- don and Baron Button, aged twenty-three. One Albert is the new hairdresser of Paris. Albert begins his rounds of heads at 10 a.m., but Worth never sends in a toilet lor ball or soiree more than ten minutes before it has to be put on. A toilet de livered on the morn of a fete wouia cease to be a new one before night, and the belle -who has had to sit erect all day for fear of d'mrranging Albert's edifice has such implicit faith in Worth that she does not mind waiting. I have seen some thus wait until two in the morning, while the beauty's husband was snoring in lull dress on tiie sola, the coachman freezing on the box, the footman wrapped in his Utly's furs in the servant's hall, and still the wife and mifctress bo serene and calmly secure that it was like a sermon on resignation to look at her. And this faith in Woith was so immense that when the things did come they were put on without inspection; and lien they were on, although the Countess could not sit down on the carriage seat because of the pannier, but had to kneel forward, nor lift up her head because of the roof, still when she entered the blazing ball room victory was on her features and hopes of an ice and biscuit within her heart. INotlung more than an ice and biscuit, for everything else would add color to her complexion and anything less would be too great a tax on human nature alter a day's fast or so little nourishment that it amounted to absolute fasting. 1'arin Cor. Nasuy has lectured one hundred nights this season, and is said to have received tifiy thousand dollars therefor. The New York San remarks: This is a good deal lor one journalist to earn in a year, even if he is as smart as Mr. Locke and as good a fellow, and it may excite the envy of the inexperienced. But when we rellcct upon the tough beefsteaks, the corn cotfee and the leathery buckwheat cakes that the devoted lecturer must swallow in awful haste; when the imagination conjures up the cold and cheerless spare rooms at deacons' houses, where he is put to sleep in unaired sheets.and where the water is frozen solid when he tries to wash his face in the morning when we think of the tea-tables where he is lioniz.ed by the old maids of the hole neighbor, hood, who interrogate him about theology, or the last number of the Atlantic Monthly, we must cease io look upon his hoard with any feeling but compassion for the dreadful sacrifice and the alarming labors by which it is amassed.

Boston is going to move the Hotel I'elham fifteen feet westward from its present position. A monument to Sam. Houston is proposed In Boston, to cost not less than five thousand dollars. Some Virginian young ladies have been having a good time and a rifle shooting match at Stanton. Natchez has a hairlesssqairrel with a oft, smooth skin, which evidently never had any bair on it. One of the gentlemen of the jury which tried Aaron Burr for treason is still living at Chillicothe, Ohio. The Micado of Japan left his palace in November, the first time such a thing has happened in 2,000 years. The New York Cooper Union has established a school for the practical instruction of women in telegraphy. Mr. Thomas Carlyle has carefully revised all of his works, and will soon issue a new and complete edition of them. Providence has a one-legged skater. The ways of the skater, like those of the city he dwells in, must be inscrutable. During the present year, Newport, 11. has lost fitty-eiiEht citizens who had lived more than their allotted three score and ten years. Cincinnati proposes to change the names of some of her streets so as to have twenty-three, instead of nine, numbered streets. Great damage has been done by the tn th nranire p-roves in Florida.

The Darien canal will be about thirty nvles in length, including a seven mile tunnel, and the estimated cost is about An Indianapolis paper diecloses the secrets of the sanctum by stating that most "editorial quills" are "stubs of pencil chewed at the end." Cyrus W. Field slipped and slid down an icy hill at Irvington the other day, striking a tree at the bottom, and receiving severe but not dangerous injury. Prussia is thinking seriously of having a World's Fair at Cologne, knowing probably that it would then bo sure of prizes for cathedrals and unpleasant odors.
