Among the great events of last week was the entrance, the performance and the exit of French's Oriental Circus. The performance was good, rather better than the usual run. It is a positive fact, however, that circuses, unlike everything' else in our country, do not make any progress ; in fact, they are not as good as they were thirty years ago, though we have to admit the influence of age upon our tastes. Oh, what a pleasure-destroying, life-chilling thing is old age ! How it robs us of our sweet dreams, of fairy forms, delightful groves fragrant flowers, pure fountains .and sweet singing birds, and peoples our visions with hideous monsters, dark caverns, black foaming torrents, bleak and desolate deserts and unearthly sounds! Put the best phase you can on old age, and it is unlovely. We fully realized this fact as we sat, solemn and silent, where all were convulsed with laughter. We had a full view of that sea of human faces, which had gathered under that pavillion last Wednesday evening; and listened to that merry laugh which burst from a thousand joyful hearts at the stale witticisms of the clown, which would at one time have electrified us in the same way, but under which we now could sit as sullen and demure as a supperless owl. When we were quite young, such things as circuses mid caravans were not known in that wilderness country, Ohio. If there had been, very few of the boys in those days would have been able to raise a quarter to get into the pit. We first gathered our ideas of such things from our neighbor, Captain Jonas Ward who had in his early days lived in Boston. The Captain was our neighborhood shoemaker, and many a long winter evening have we sat listening with eager curiosity to the marvelous things he had seen in Boston, while he was putting a new sole on our cowhide shoes. Oh, how we longed to be big, so that we could go where they had circuses, theatres and caravans. We have now been big a great, while, and have seen all those things, and like the preacher, we are ready to cry, "Vanity 1'.' Age is the only thing that will make a man cry "Vanity?" Youth cannot see it. We were probably the first boys in our neighborhood to visit a caravan or circus. If we had any enterprise when we were young, it lay in that direction. Probably we were, to some extent, indebted to the tales of our neighbor for this enterprise.—The first circus we ever visited, we went to Painesville. twenty miles-, -on-foot, to see.—We had- but twenty-five cents, just the fee in those days to get in; but we had a brother- in-law in the vicinity upon whom we could forage. Upon our return, we, like our neighbor, the captain, had marvel? lous stories to tell tc tho boys in the neighborhood, who, with gaping mouths and dilated visual organs, listened to our rghearsal of the sharp jokes the clown had got oft* at his master's ex pense. But it was our first visit to a caravan that has made the most lasting impression upon our mind, ' It was late in the month of November, 1826, that news reached our neighborhood that there was to be a caravan in Burton, the principal village in that section, situated nine miles from our house, and containing about one hundred inhabitants, and looked upon as a large place by us. Our mind was,, of course, made up to be there on that occasion, without taking into consideration the difficulties, whiqh we have since learned, await us whenever we attempt any great enterprise. In those days,'in that section of the country, boys could not have bnt one pair of shoes a year, and for two resons they could not get them until late in the fall.—The first was, the tanners could not get the leather out, and the second was, the shoemakers were always behind. Therefore, when the day of exhibition came, we had no shoes. But that was no particular-drawback to" us, for our feet had got scaled over and nearly as hard as a hoof. They would stand anv kind of cold but snow, and they could thaw that some. The day was extremely cold, and threatened snow; but we were bound to see the lion, and made up our minds to brave the difficulty. But when we got ready to start, another difficulty met us, which nearly wrecked bur hopes. We had two and sixpence in money left out of three shillings, which we had got for our share of a bearskin, which another boy and ourself had kUled. We had spent six cents on general training day for gingerbread, which we divided among our poor playmates. We took the two and sixpense and rolled a piece Of pa-, per round it, and stuek it in a cradk in the old log house—the only place of deposit we had—and when -we got ready to start we had forgotten whete we put it. Well, you, can imagine that there was some foaming about that shanty. But it was of no avail; the change could not be found. ~ After a fruitless search until almost noon,, our father, seeing our distracted condition, loaned us a shilling, and we broKe for the show, and we never stopped the run until we reached Burton square ; but; tcuour dismay the caravan had not arrived there, and it was doubtful whether it would, h*i "consequence of a breaK down a few miles out of town. The snow was beginning to fall thick and fast. We started for home once or twice, but could not .give up the idea of seeing the lion. At last, just at darx, the show came in. They did not have large tents those days. They usually got under a shed, and hung up canvas in front. It seemed to us that they would never get the thing ready. But, finally, just at darx the fiddle and triangle struck up, the show was ready, and the ground was getting white. We handed our shilling to the doorkeeper and passed in. There was a lion, a buffalo, a pony and three or four monkeys.—We have no recollection whether we indulged in any romantio. refiections concerning the wonders of nature, or not. We recollect distinctly that when we emerged from the shed it was dark, and the ground covered with snow. We took a survey of our situation and let on steam, and we never broke the jump until we reached home. But before we reached there, however, the snow was two inches deep. The next day, all along the road there was great excitement among the old hunters about the tracks of a strange animal which could be seen coming all along the road from towards Burton, and, of course it was soon rumored that the lion had broke loose and had been tracked to within a mile of our house, where, fortunately for us, it was blotted out by a drove of cattle. The general opinion was that it was a bear, though some declared that the animal made a track larger than a bear's—it must be an elephant. There was great consternation in the neighs borhood. We were consulted as it regards the shape of a lion's foot. We gave it as our opinion that it was not a lion. The man who followed the track through Bridge Creek Woods,(where we were serenaded by a pack of wolves who broke out within a few rods from us,)said no bear ever made such leaps as this animal made for about a mile through the woods. It would be tedious to tell the strange stories that circulated around the country concerning the tracks of the- strange animal that had made its appearance in our very midst. Hunters who had never quailed before the. panther, bear or wolf^ entered the forest with a suspicious look for a long time after the discovery of the misterious tracks. Exaggeration ran wild through the sparsely settled country. A short titne after the occurrence we went to mill about three miles from home. While there we overheard* some men talking about the mysterious tracks. One man said he had seen a man who- had seen the track. He said the track was over three feet long, and that the animal jumped over eighty feet- to a jump, all through Bridge Creek Woods. We took a look at our feet and slipped into the mill. This story has remained a family secret ever since, but we never heard the last of going to see the lion, at home. We wonld say in conclusion, that the two and sixpense was found about two years after that by a younger sister, in a crack, as above stated. Notwithstanding all our mishaps, our ardor for seeing circuses and caravans was not in the least diminished. ' But age is doing what neither hardships nor privations could do when we were young, and we can sifrTinmoved amid scenes that would once have moved us to tears, or caused us to shout with joy. The brilliant but antiquated jokes of a clown can no longer provoxe us to laughter ; nor the tales of unrequited love make us weep. Yes; old age is ringing " Vanity !" into our ears ; but, thank Providence, it is mostly confined to circuses yet.—Racine Journal. WOWDEREFL HAIR REPRODUCER. Dr.- later they were common, for sad-eyed Dante sings to their strixing. And hence have sprung all horological curiosities, from the great clock of Strats- bourg, with its pedestrian, gymnastic saints, down to our curious mantel ornaments of,Prussian handiwork, which tell their owner hour/day month, year, tides, weather—almost everything except the condition of his bank account and the state of his wife's temper. The watch is- a lineal descendant of the clock, and lixe most sons a trifle more flippant and pretentious than its honest father. Perhaps with cause, for it is a wonder of wonders, a pocxet planetary system. It-was born in Nuremberg 400 years ago. Henry the VII of wife-xilling memory, carried one.

Venerable and far-sighted capilary producer I We do, and more too. Your Onguent is a big thing. Although in small cakes, it is nevertheless a colossal item. We tried it. Following the printed directions given, we made a lather and applied the brush. The lather was mixed in a glass dish, and in four minutes a beautiful hair, all shades of color, had started from the dish. We applied some to our face, and it took four swift-working barbers to out down and mow away as fast as the beard grew. We put a little on the toe of each boot; in anhour they looked like Zouave moustaches. We put some on a crowbar, and it is covered with long, curly hair like a buffalo, and. in the coldest weather it can he used without mittens. ' A little on the carriage pole, started tho hair on it like moss. We dropped some on the stove, and as the fire- was kindled the hair started and the hotter the stove became, the faster grew the hair, till the smell of burnt [hair became so powerful as to drive all from the room. The stove was set in the barn, and it can't beseen now as the hair, is literally stacked upon it. Only one application. A little applied on a wagon tire has in five days, started a vigorous crop, and now - the wagon can be driven, oyer a plank road and not make the least ■ noiso, so well are the wheels covered with soft hair. Only on© application—dollar a cake. We skinned a goose, put on some of the Onguent, and in two hours the feather-grower was enveloped in. hair like a squirrel, and was seen this morn- ing trying to climb a shagbark hickory in the back yard. A little applied to. the inkstand has given it a coat of bristles, making a splendid pen-wiper at little cost. We applied the lather to a tenpenny nail, and the nail is now the handsomest lather-brush you ever saw, with a beautiful growth of hair at the end Of it, seme five or six feet in length. Only a dollar a cake I Applied to door stones it does away with the use of a mat. Applied to a floor, it will cause to grow therefrom hair sufficient for a Brussles carpet. A little of this Onguent lather was jaocidently dropped .on the head of our oane, which has been perfectly bald for over ten years, and immediately .a thick growth of hah4 formed,, completely covering itj compelling us to shave the head twice a week. Only a dollar a bottle—directions thrown in. A little weak ■ lather sprinkled over a barn makes it impervious to wind, rain or cold. It is good to put inside children's cradle's—sprinkle on sidewalks, anything, where luxuriant grass is wanted for use or ornament. We put a little on the head of navigation, and a beautiful hair covered it.

I take him home and sows him up in der petticoat of mine vrow, and spose she prake, I prake her head."' Struck with the idea, he rushed for home, and probably found cause to rejoice over his new and safe sub-treasury. BEATIFUL SENTIMENT. The composing room of a printing office is about as productive of various questions, and elicits as much curiosity from visitors as any place of business we know of. First thing a visitor does is to step up to a case where fingers are at work, and watch every motion with ■perfect steadfastness ; looks into the compOwtor's face to see where his eyes are ; the process looks mysterious, and questions follow about like this : " How do you know where to find the letters ? Are they arranged in order ? How do you know when they are right side up ? What is the reason that there is more type in some boxes than -the others ? I should think you 'd . make mistakes ; you ought to have the boxes marked. Don't you get the wrong letters sometimes?'' Looking around, he spies in a corner a lot of " something" that calls forth, " what are these ? " Compositor—'-' Quads. Visitor—" What's quads ?" Compositor explains. Next finds the forms from which another person is distributing. Visitor—" Tearing 'em down, hey 1" Compositor-1-" Yes." - " Can.you do that faster than you oan set it ? What makes you wet the type? (looking at the form.) why, .it's all upside down. Is that the way it always is? You can't read it, can you.?" Next goes round the press and finds the roller, puts his fingers on it, and gets them dyed a shade or two darker than their original color. " What's this roller made of—India rubber ?" Compositor:—" No, of glue and molasses." Visitor-—" Of molasses ? I should think-it; would melt! " Compositor—It will when it gets warm enough." Hisieyes next fall upqn the paper wet down ready for press. Visitor—" Why, this paper is all wet. Do you have to do that ? " Compositor—" Yes." "•What for?" Compositor explains and wishes he would dry up. He looks around and finds a form of advertisements laid aside. He runs his finger oyer the column, and knocks a square of it into confusion. tor looks cross, and says knocked that into pi." Visitor whistles and goes compositor isn't looking. Shortly before the departure of the lamented Heber for India, he preached a sermon which contained this beautir ful illustration: " life bears us on like the stream of a mighty river. Our boat at first glides down the narrow channel—through the playful murmurings of a little brook, and the windings of its grassy borders. The trees shed their blossoms over our young heads, the flowers seem to offer themselves to the young hands; we are happy in hope, ahd grasp eagerly at the beauty around us. But the stream hurries on, and still our hands are empty. Our course in youth and manhood is along a deeper and wider flood, among objects most striking and magnificent. We are animated at the moving pictures and enjoyment and industry around lis. We are excited at some short living disappointment. The stream bears us on, and our joys and our .griefs are alike left behind us. We may he shipwrecked, but we cannot be delayed, whether ' rough of smooth. The river hastens on, till the roar of the ocean is in our ears, and the tossing of the waves is beneath our foet, and the floods are lifted up around us, and we take our leave of earth and its inhabitants until of our voyage there is no witness save the infinite and the eternal."

It was a glass vessel from which water ran through a little aperture at the bottom. It was a sort of household tide. The height of water told the hour. Chaldea, India, .China used it. Plato found itln Egypt. Greexs and Romans employed it in court to limit their voluble lawyers. Julius Csesar found it among the rude Britons. Sand is more convenient and less variable than water, so the hour-glass crowded out the lep- sydra. Good King Alfred burned candles to marx the hours. Einneeus had a more royal luxury. .

Two centuries Joke on a Constable.—A " cute" state constable at Plymouth, meeting a tin peddler, asKed him if he had a license to selL " No," was the cool reply. The constable hastened to procure a wairant, and a long days search found the offending person andbrought him before the magistrate. When, as a matter of form, he was asxed— " Guilty, or not guilty?" - " Not guilty I" he quietly answered. " Don't you peddle goods around here ?" said the judge. "Yes, Sir !" "Well then, sir, have you a license to do 80?"r; "Oh, Yes I" " Why, didn't you tell this gentleman that you had no license ?" tt No, sir," said the peddler.

" Her feet are soft," he says, " for she treads not upon the ground," but makes her path upon the heads of men." We imagine irony here, but the metaphor carries a serious truth. The great bulk of. human calamity springs from human weakness, which crystalizes in the form of habit. Subtle and insidious, with a footfall" more noiseless than snow, and a chain strong- er than steel,'it creeps upon" the firmest and -proudest of mankind, arid oftentimes has them prostrate; and irre-. vocably bound before they have even a suspicion of the sinister approach. Intellect of' the loftiest order rseems indeed quite as frequently to invite as -to- repel the destructive mastery of habit. We have but to remember the awful struggles Of De Quincey, the pitiful degradation of Addison, the helpless slavery of Sheridan and Fox, to be assured of this, and have no need to refer to sadly numerous instances in our, own generation for evidence of the implacable grasp which -habit4 may attain' upon the brightest and best of our species. None, therefore, are exempt from the chance of downfall, and the. only wise course is that which, is directed by an apprehensive circumspection which, conscious on every side, omits no rational precaution to avoid it.— Round Table. peddler in an injured tone, it to peddle with. for I Want During the money panic at San Francisco, a poor Dutchman, who had a couple of hundred dollars in Page, Bacon & Co's., drew it out, and after carrying it about an hour or two, thinking Adams & Co. must be perfectly safe, deposited it there; happening to hear some doubts expressed about them an hour later, he became alarmed, and drew it out;, again; took it to Wright's and opefsfl. a bank account with him, he had n"c* gone Jen yards before he saw a man rushing to his office looking wild.
