Mx$MlUm. RULES FOR COURTING. The following good advice on the above subject is from the pen of John Quill, who seems to have.rathor a blissful experience in relation to such matters -:' 1.. Never go courting the girl's pa-, rents. You'd better edge up to the clwiHer,horself at once ; for you can't rilarry her if you don't try, unless she wants you, and you may be able to even if the old folks are hard on. you. 2. By_.aU means get the, girl's ma down on you as much as possible. If the Mil lady is* always blowing against you, the little dear begins to take your part, and can't-help loving you. I did this way, and my present mother-in-law used to throw brooms and washboards at me, and teach tho dog to bite me in the trowsers as I climbed over, the fence. N. B. She's got over it now, and lives at my house without paying hoard. If remorse festers in her soul in conse- qnence of her conduct, however, I qayenft bbtieed it yet. 3. If you see any other fellows prowling about, always euchre them if you can. If you see one of them buy tickets for Tlie opera, .go aaght up and make an engagement with the girl, and get your tickets afterwards; and when they visit the house always act as.if you wefe at homo] anjd fcfiey fveS-6 only visitors', and never leavVfirst. I always did this, and have frequently sat until .daybreak, while thefair one snored away^on'lhe sofa. You can't bluff me. No, sir, ha! ha I I guess not.- I would have been there yet if the fellow had stayed. 4. If the old man has worldly wealth, express a dislike to. greenbacks, and a hankering after love in a small hause. 5. When you inquire if she-will have you, don't fall on your knees—it's ridiculous, Upsides being rough on trousers. Just take her hand and speak out like a man. 6. When you are engaged, don't go off like an old jackass, and begin buying teaspoons and wash boilers and candles. It is very unwise and excites comment. Why I recollect, I was so glad That I went right off and purchased a baby- jumper and a gum ring. It was a long while ore those things were necessary, the baby-jumper had shrunk so and that when we put the first of the little Quils into it, it suddenly jerked up, and came frightfully near battering the devoted child's brains out against the ceiling, while the gum ring, having been kept Jn a box with cockroach poison, threw the baby into fits, and he (it was a boy) had spasms in the orib for four days. 7. If a girl refuses you don't give it up, but try it again. Becausertwo negatives make an affirmative in grammar; however, don't consider yourself accepted when a girl jilts you twice. I asked one female forty-one times, and at last she got to expect it whenever I came, and sometimes would holler out " No I " from the top'of the stairs before I got fa-My in the house. 8. Kiss all the little children in the house, erven if they are dirty, and do smear molasses candy in your hair. Let the boy play horse with you and make a fool of you generally. It is a trump card if you play it right. 9. And finally, if there are two sisters, and the old one is jealous, get some one to choke rherofTwhile you go in for the younger.' I did that once, and used to get my friends to -ask the senior girl out every evening; but she found me out and used to arrange hair pins in the sofa cushions before she went out, so that it was extremely uncomfortable. If any further information iswanted, send me a letter enclosing stamp '(fifty cents), and I will cheerfully give it gratis.. A LEGEND OF THE GREAT EASTERN. '- There is a wild sort of legend in connection with the Gr&at Eastern steamship, the origin, of -whwjh I do not know, but the shiprights firmly believe in it. So much has been written about the construction of this famous vessel; that the slightest allusion to it here will suffice. She is a ship with two cases, orskins^as they are called ; that is, she; is almost like one ship fitted inside another. Between the inner and outer skin workmen can crawl for repairs. Dreadfully dark and sepulchral, of course, it is in there, for, from the nature of the space, • the workman must be completely closed in, excepting the spot where he enters. Very few smiths or shipwrights would care to work in here alone, for two terrible spec ties are supposed to haunt the place. Almost all the men who were engaged in the construction'of the vessel believe that, somewhere there in the darkness and thick air, lie two skeletons, which never can be found till -the vessel is broken up. These are'the remains of a'smith and his riveter, the latter being a lad. During the construction of the vessel these two workmen all through the week, kept full time ; and their work lay. in between the skins. The smith was an elderly man, of a moody temper, who made no friends; and was not popular with his mates. No one had seen him leaving woric; nobody was interested in him. But one pay day both he and his lad failed to appear at the pay table to draw their monejf. '-'They were never heard of more by any one who worsted on the Great Eastern. Of course their iab- senee had been noticed by the time Keeper and other officials; but the missing men being, as I have said, unpopular with their comrades, there had been very little inquiry about them until it was found that their money was not claimed. It was then soon noted that the last time they had been seen, that they were at worK" in the " case " of the ship, and before long it became a fixed notion that by a fall, or by the -effect of some vapor, the two had been Killed, or stunned until closed ia'; and all the hostof meriwho worxed at the great ship believed thatvsome- where m the 'vast IiuIk there lay two sKeletons, which, for some.. reason, could never be found; the.\prosaic idea that the old fellow and his helper had left without warning for a better job, finding, of course, no favor. ■ . LOOK" ALOFT. -When in a perilous position it is dangerous to look down. The sight.is very apt to create dizziness and fright,; and lead'to a fall. A boy on shipboard was sent out on one of the long, high yards to do some work. He finished his task, but as he walked back to the mast- on the single round 'yard, he looked down' to the deck, dizziness came over him, his head began to swim, and in another moment he might have fallen, and been killed. But the Waft;!*-. ful eye of $}e rcaptawi' saw ;tbe: lad's danger, and he cried out to hdm, in a tone that could but be obeyed,'" Look rfioft, boy, look aloft I " The astonished boy looked up, recovered his poise and self possession and reached the deck in safety. " My boy," said the captain," "when, in danger remember to look up." It is always dangerous to look down on things and people below us. ■ Your head may not swim.with .dizziness, you may not be paralyzed with fright, but by looking down on bad. persons and unworthy things your heart may grow dizzy, an,d in spite of good resolutions you may fall almost before you realize -your danger. The desires and feet usually follow the lead of the eyes. Look rriuoh at wicked companions and impure objects' and you will almost surely go downward and become bad too. It makes an immense difference boys, whether you look down or up. Many of the best young men have fallen, because they looked constantly at companions •and scenes that were unworthy and degraded. Many of themost promising boys have failed in life because they had no high aim—because they looked not above. The only safety for you, boys, in this world, so full of perils, and pitfalls, is in looking up to persons and things above you. The upward look steadies the heart, and keeps the being sound and strong. The more you think of. great and good men, the more will you wish to become great and good yourselves. The more you associate wi£h those, the wiser and better will you become. Heart and hand usually follow the eyes. Look up, you will most likely ascend. Boys, I give you a motto to-day— Look aloft. When you are tempted and your heart grows dizzy with wrong desires, remember the sailor boy, and look aloft. In your private hours, in your walks, plays, conversations, keep your eyes fixed on men and things above you. Look aloft in your meditations, and He who dwells above will reward /your upward look with . the prizes and prospects He has reserved for only those who look aloft. A Very Peculiar Case of Hydrophobia- From the Detroit Free Press, July 6. Sixteen years ago last Wednesday, James Bay, then a,resident of Pontiac, was bitten by a rabid dog, but experienced no serious effects' from the bite, until one year from the day ori which jhe was bitten. He then felt some sym- toms of the terrible disease, which soon developed into a most frightful attack. For six weeks -he was a raving maniac, and all hope of his recovery was abandoned; but an iron constitution, and skillful nursing, brought him out from the shadow of death, and he rallied, |the disease finally- passed off. He pur- su'd'd :the even tenor of his way until the second anniversary, when he was again attacked, but with less severity than on the first occasion. The 26th day of June in each succeeding year has been the occasion of a hydrophobic fit, the last of which attacked him one week ago yesterday, at Sandwich) where he was employed as a brickmaker. The usual symptoms were felt during the early part of the day, and Bay requested some of his friends to tie him in order to prevent personal injury. Being frightened by his personal appearance they refused to -do so, and he continued at his work all day and until midnight, his usual time for quitting. Going to a neighboring barn, he-tried to sleep off the dreaded attack. After a while his companions heard a noise in the barn, ahd learning that it was as Bay had declared, went to his aid. An appalling sight greeted them. The poor victim was foaming at the mouth, biting at various objects, and to all appearance suffering the most horrible agony. As soon as he caught sight of them, with eyes glowing like fireballs, and uttering an unearthly yell, he made a rush for them. The party at once retreated, leaving Bay alone in the gloomy hay- loftj-wrought up to the highest pitch of. maniacal frenzy^ and battling With an enemy that no mortal man can subdue. In one of his convulsions • he lifted a portion or the roof completely off, which evidently exhausted him, as nothing more was heard, and when his friends finally ventured to look after- him, he was found in a sound sleep. He was at once secured and taken to a safe place, where he was kept for several hours, and when he awoke nearly all traces of the previous night's awful experience had disappeared, and with the exception" of the exhaustion produced by his great escape by that means all would, be drowned. After many hours of laborious efforts to raise the boat, the hoisting machinery broke, and the attempt was necessarily abandoned. About the middle of the afternoon of the second day the bubbles commenced to grow fainter and more rarej and before sundown entirely ceased. The boat still lies where it went down, and passengers arriving by the steamer are _told by the boatmen, as they row towards the shore, the painful story of these ten men's fate, and of the females who still mourn in Valparaiso for their fath* ers and brothers,in the iron coffin- at the bottom of the sea. sultenngs was as well as usual. TEN MEN ON THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN. The -Herald's Valparaiso correspondent sends the following: After the bombardment of Valparaiso and while the Spanish fleet was at Callao, a man, residing at Valparaise, constructed a submarine boat for the purpose, of applying torpedoes to" .the bottom of the Spanish frigates. The boat was forty feet long, and was propelled by a screw worked by hand. So confident was the builder in her efficacy that at the first experiment in the bay he took with him into the boat his son and eight friends- After sailing about a few moments on the surface, the boat was made to sink without the precaution of having the cables atached for use in case of accident, or even a buoy to. mark the spot where she went down. Several hours elapsed, and the boat failing to return, the spectators crowded on the mole began to fear that all was not right, and as the day passed away, the conviction became general that the adventurous party had gone to the bottom. Late in the afternoon the mail steamer from Panama -came in and fired a gun near the spot where the boat disappeared. As the small boats were passing to and from the steamers with passengers, etc., bubbles were discovered rising upon the surface of the water where the submarine boat was last seen; and as they came up at regular intervals and in small numbers • it was supposed that the party was still alive, and hearing the steamer's gun, and knowing that a great many boats would be going.to and fro, was signalling for help by ejecting air. A diver belonging to one of the English men-of-war Was at once sent down', and after half an hour's anxious waiting he returned with the intelligence that the boat was on the bottom, in thirty-three fathoms of water. Chains arid cables were immediately attached to the boat, and repeated efforts made to raise her, but without avail, her bottom seeming to have been sucked into the oozy bed of the sea, and become firmly fastened. All night and the next day, until afternoon, the bubbles kept coming up like signals, ■ sometimes not appearing for half an hour at a time, and then suddenly rushing up for a few seconds with great force. The feelings of the popu- lac»/asse'mbled to rescue the party from their terrible fate may be imagined;' but what must have been the reflections of the men during these awful hours at the bottom of the sea, knqwing as they did what little hope there Was for them. They could have heard the divers working on the sides of their, boat attaching the chains, and, perhaps, -,j&$fr the strain as the cable drew taut; but as time sped away without their being raised, dispair, worse than death, must have taken possession of them. Doubtless they tried hard to signal through the sides of their boat to the diver hammering outside, but he, in his diving dress, could hear nothing. The apertures-to the interior were so small that but one person could pass through at a time, and that very slowly, so that if an attempt was made to DANIEL WEBSTER'S CHARACTER. Mr. Parton, the historian, in a late magazine article, thus portrays the character of-the late Daniel Webster He says : In surveying the life and works of this eminent and gifted man, we are continualjy struck with the evidences of his magnitude. He was, as we have said, a very large person. His brain was within a little of being one-third larger than the average, and it was one of the three largest on record. His -bodily frame, in all parts, was on a majestic scale, and his presence was immense. He liked large things—mountains, elms, great oaks, wide fields, the oeeaii, the Union, and all things of magnitude. He liked gseafc Borne far better than refined Greece, and reveled in the immense things of literature, such as Paradise Lost and the Book of Job' Burke, Dr. Johnson and the Sixth Book of iEneid. Homer he never cared for—nor,, indeed, anything Greek. He hated, he loathed the act of writing.. Billiards, ten-pins, chess, draughts, whist, he never relished, though fond to excess of out-door pleasures, like hunting, fishing, yachting. He liked to be alone with great nature—alone in the giant woods or on the shores of the resounding sea—alone all day with his gun, his dog and his thoughts—alone in the morning before any one was astir but himself, looking out upon the sea and the glorious sunrise, r What a delicious picture of this' large healthy son of earth Mr. Lanman gives us, where he describes his coming into his bed-room at sunrise. "Awake, sluggard ! and look upon this glorious scene, for the sky and' the ocean are enveloped in flames!" He was akin to all large, and slow things in nature. A herd offine cattle gave him a keen, arr inexhaustable enjoyment; but he never "tasted" a horse, he had no horse enthusiasm. In England he chiefly enjoyed these five things, the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey. Smith- field Cattle Market, English farming, and Sir Eobert Peel. Sir Robert Peel, he thought, was "head and shoulders above any other man " he ever met.— He greatly excelled, too, ih describing immense things. In speaking of the pyramids, once, he asked, "who can inform us by what now unknown machines mass was thus aggregated to mass, and quarry piled on quarry, till solid granite seemed to cover the earth and reach the skies ?"' His peculiar love of the union of these States was partly due, perhaps, to this habit of mind- He felt that he wanted and required a continent to live in; his mind would have gasped for breath ia New Hampshire. PUT TO HIS STUMPS. . About forty years ago there lived in Western Pennsylvania two farmers named Wood and Osborne respectively.-. They were near neighbors, but inveterate enemies; and it is said they almost lived in sight of each other. Wood one day went out with a mat- toCk to dig up half a dozen stumps that had never yet been removed from his meadow ; but he -finding it pretty hard work, and, -moreover, not being very fond of work, he gave it up arid returned to the house.. On the way it occurr. ed to him that by a cunning device, he might induce his friendly neighbor to uproot the little annoyances. Acting on a bright idea that occurred to him, he entered his house, got his writing materials; and in a disguised hand, wrote : «*•--_« " Mr. Wood:—I am an old man, fast approaching my end, and I cannot go to my grave without revealing to you a seeret. When I was a young man I helped to rob your grandfather of a large amount of money. I and my partner in crime buried five thousand dollars of it under a tree in the meadow that now belongs to you. No doubt these trees have been cut down by this time, but the stumps may still remain. My companion was soOn after hanged for a murder he committed, and I was sent to jail: for highway robbery. I was but lately released; and I wish to do all I can to atone for past misdeeds, I send this letter by- a person who says he knows where you live, and he will throw it; into your house. •■ " A Repent ant Criminal" vMy. Wood sealed this bit of fiction, addressed it to-hinjjself, and when night came crept stealthily to Osborne's dodr4 opened it, tossed in the letter and ran as thong*h satan were after him. On reaching home he retired and slept soundly till'morning. When he rose he cast a glance toward his meadow and to his satisfaction, discovered that every stump in it had been dug up and pulled out by the roots. After breakfast he went to work and'piled them up ready to burn. . Imaeioe-Qsborae's bitterness of heart as he passed on his way to the village that morning, saw Wood thus, engaged, and knew that he had been duped by him.- MODEL TEMPERANCE HOUSE. A few years ago, when the Maine liquor law was in full force in Vermont-; Judge C, of . was en a journey. He stopped at a tavern in the town-of for the night. After supper the Judge asked the worthy landlord ' for a glass of gis;' The landlord said be was sorry he could not accommodate him. ' "I am obliged by law to keep a temperance house," lie said. , It was late, so the Judge could not go on that night, but told the landlord he would leave early iri . the morning before breakfast. The Judge was taken to a fine room; the landlord said : " I hope you will be comfortable." Theje was an open stove in the room where Judge C. found a bottle of brandy. He then went to his washstand and opened it; he found a bottle of gia, water, glasses, etc. The J udge after helping himselfj went down and told the landlord he would not leave early. After breakfast the next morning- Judge C. paid his bill, and said to the landlord : " I have been a great opposer of temperance houses, and I always refused to stop at one, but I like the.hang of yours, and will call whenever I come this way."' The landlord said:' " I am sorry I could not let you have some gin last evening; but the law is so strict, and my neighbors keep so close Watch, that I am obliged to keep a ' temperance house.' ? ■ " What is a Tare ?"—Many men, although not as exemplary as they should be in their own lives, are yet at much.pains to rear their -children coft rectly. The sentiment with them is; " do as I say, not as I do." Such a father (hot far from Cincinnati) is in the habit of- getting intoxicated, or on a " tare," rather often. He endeavors, however, to hide the fact from his children, "but-" little pitchers have long ears," and children. know more of what is going on than grown people generally suppose. - The evening this exemplary parent was hearing his little Johnny recite his Sunday school lesson. It was. from, the fourteenth chapter of Matthew^ wherein is related the parable of the malicious individual' who went about sowing tares, etc. " What is a tare ? " the parent interrupted to inquire. . Johnny hesitated.. Tell me, my son, what a tare is."- " You have had 'em," said Johnny, casting his eyes down and wriggling his foot. " Had "em," said the astonished parent, opening his- eyes rather white: " why,-what do you mean, Johnny?" " When you didn't come home for three days last week," said Johnny, " I beard mother tell Aunt Susan that you were off on a tare." The Sunday school lesson wasbrougkt to an abrupt close, and Johnny, who knew too much altogether to sit up any later, was sent oft' to bed. Masculine . Etiquette.'—Gentlemen walking should keep their hands in their pockets. It shows their figure to advantage, keeps their hands warrn and out of other people's pockets. In the afternoon congregate in front of hotels and saloons. Then upon ladies passing- set up an equine cachina- tion (translated horse laugh). Keep the centre of the sidewalk. By this means others in meeting you will know fvbich side to pass.; when they attempt it, step iri the same direelvo'ri with them. -This' affords an agreeable variety in a promenade. If you see a' rjerson on the opposite side of the street you wish bo inbefvep't, cry as loud as possible to "him, " Ho, Jones." Of course Jones will "Ho ! " and yon will show people that yam take a great interest in the fate of Joeest When turning a corner, walk rapidly, with your eyes in the opposite' direction. You may meet • somebody, and give them an opportunity to study astronomy by daylight. One of the best stories we remember referring to a stolen watch comes from a French source. In the pit of the old French opera,- One of the audience suddenly discovered that his watch was gone. The 'evening's entertainment had not commenced" and the owner of the property mounted a bench, stated the loss, which could not have occurred above two or three minutes, and begged those around him to remain- perfectly quiet, as his watch strucK th<: hours lixe a cIock, and it then being on the st-riice of seven, the watch would speedily indicate into whose possession it had .fallen. There was a dead silence; lmfc the. eye .of the proprietor detected an individual who was trying to edge away from the vicinity, and he immediately denounced tlie SKubxor as '■ the thief. The latter was seized,' and the watch was found upon him; and as the owner quietly put it into his; poCKet, he romanced: "The watch- does not striKe the hour, but I thought my assertion that. it-did would eUal'J*' me to striKe out the thief. It waS ah apt answer of a fair 3«oup-H ladv, who, being asxed where—-"*^ -**?£. native place, replied^*^. "on?;. * am the daiigh>-«T^Methodist minister." 1 ^^^
