Polly Pembroke's Baby. "Dear me," said Polly Pembroke, "what a noise and eonfusion ! I am quite sure I should )h> crazy if I lived in the crty." Polly Pembroke was a farmer's daugh ter, who had came down to New York to buy the material for the first silk dress she had ever owned— u real deep blue, to l e trimmed with velvet of a darker shade. And Polly's golden head was dizzy with the thunder of omnibus wheels, i"d the rattle and rush of elevated rail ways, and the snow ssion of brilliant thing* in the shop windows and Polly Hat holding on to her parcels in the great echoing depot, and wondering why everybody wan in such a hurry. For the express train was just going out, and Polly and Miss Jones, the vil lage dress maker, who had come with her to help select the important dress, were obliged t<> wait fifteen minutes for the way train, which condescended to stop at "Whip-poor-WiU Glen," when Polly lived. She was a pretty little primrose of a ii aiden, with large, wistful bro...

The St. Betersburg correspondent of the Boston Advertiser, gives the follow ing description of the christening of the third son of the Czurovitch : When the chapel was filled the service began. AJHfr much chanting and reading the water is blessed, the child taken out of his clothes and plunged 'into the font, head first, three times. The priest closed his eyes and nose with his fingers, but the "august new-born," as he is styled in large capitals in the programme for the day, screamed like an ordinary baby, and evidently did not like it. He was then given to the godmother, wrapped in blankets and dosed quietly while another prayer was said. Me was only left in peace for a few moments, the priest anointed his ears,eyes, mouth, hands and feet with holy oil, that none of these members should do any harm in life. When the little fellow had re covered from this interruption and just began to quiet down he was again dis turbed and all his hair cut offj thrown in...

Zulu Warfare. The rumor that the native troops serving with the British troops i:i South Africa, have massacred theii officers and deserted, gives voice to tin- fears of the English officers who haveseen service in Cape Colony. Lieut. Edgeeome, an of ficer in South Africa, and recently ar rived in New York, does not hesitate to pronounce the Pingoallies of the British unreliable, cowardly and treacherous. In the previous wars it was their custom, as soon as a battle opened, to retire be hind their European supports and fire in the direction of the enemy without re gard Tn their friends in front. This always made them dangerous friends, .uid caused the regulars to look on thorn with distrust It was claimed that they shot more of their own officers in an en gagement than did the enemy, and that in many cases the officers of a native regiment were the only ones to remain on the ground. If this story is true, it is easy to be lieve the rumors as to desertion and massacre. The Kaffirs in...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, MARCH 90, IS7'.». The latest news from Alaska is peaceable. No outbreak by the Indians yet, who are awed by the presence of the gunboat. The late great wind storm extended from California far into British Columbia, and, so far as observations show, in a narrow belt of longitude. The extra session of Congress opened Tues day, Randall being re-elected speaker of the House. It is expected the session will be mostly devoted to politics and president making. The great walking match in New York re sulted in a victory of Rowell, the English champion, closely followed by the two Amer icans. O'Leary was closed out early in the contest. Gen. Howard and Governor Terry suc eaeded in securing Moses and some other chiefs, ami started this way on Monday. Moses and the others will go to Washington, It is now thought there will be no Indian war in the Territory this year. The city of Szegediu iu Hungary, 100,000 inhabitants, was almost entirely destroyed by a flood l...

The World's End. Two miles from Fair Haven, across the line, in Hampton, wo found the old residence of Prophet Miller, who fore told that the world would come to an end in 1848. The place has passed out of the hands of the family, but one son lives near by and a number of grand children. The Adventists, a« they are called, now have a small chapel on the old farm, in which services are some times held — whenever astray preacher comes along. The old Baptist church which stood near by thirty years ago, and which all of the Millers formerly attended, has been pulled down. A plain n arble shaft marks the prophet's grave in a cemetery near by. He died in the Winter of 1819, and we attended his funeral. H iuies of Host on preached the sermon, which was more then two hours long, in the Congregational chureh at Fair Haven. He began by saying : "I ought to be with yonder mourners, for I am one." Himes at that time published an Advent journal, but we are told he has tince a|>ostatized. He w...

A New Kind ot Steamer Trials are about to be made at Mar seills, France, of a vessel on an entirely new principle, propelled without either screw or paddle-wheels. The craft is of the dimensions and form ot an ordinary tug boat, and is worked by means of a steam-pump of ir» horse power, with a horizontal tubular boiler. That pump is of enormous power, and draws in con siderable quantities water, which by the force with which it is expelled against the sea at the stern sends the vessel for ward. The ship is furnished with two pairs of tubes, the one acting at the stern and the other at the bow. During the ordinary progress of the boat those in front are closed by stop-cocks, but if oc casion arises for making the steamer retrograde, the after tubes are closed and the others opened. The water to supply the pump is taken from the sea alongside, but that communication can alsa be closed, and a system of barrels filled with water is provided in the bold to sop ply the pump in case of any...

I have no doubt that you will all do me the honor to taste it" A perfect shower of tobacco quids and half-consumed cigars fell on the big utove hearth, and the crowd had its mouth already when the agent scrutin ised the bottle and said: "Well, lam mistaken. I left the wine at the hotel, and brought along my hair invigorator in place of it! Gentle men, please remain seated while 1. go and fetch the old wine."...
