Richard w.*re's ·alady. One of the most remarkable adflictions, or visitations, that have ever come be fore the medical profession in this city is to be found on Madison Street, four doors above Nineteenth, on the south side, the subject being Richard Moore, who for over thirty years has been a piano-mover in this city. The affliction is a very strange one, and seems wholly confined to his mouth, over which he has not the slighest con trol, and his teeth keep up a constant chattering and clashing together, and, without any guiding on his part or with out the slightest movemeat of his body, will commence and chatter together in perfect tune, as if playing a musical composition. The sounds which they produce vary continually, and bear the exact resemblance of a performer play ing a medley on a pair of bones. A re porter heard of the strange case and went to investigate the matter. Several inquiries and directions finally landed him In front of a nest, two-story frame house, surrounded...

The Slave Traie in Turkey. The other day, as was telegraphed at the time, a girl about twelve years old was publicly sold in the court-yard of a mosqlue situated In the heart of Galata, and through which hundreds of pqrsons hourly pass. It has since transpired that two female children-one already a slave, the other an incorrigible galaboet, whose description answers to that of the little maiden in question-are missing from their homes, having probably been kidnapped by dealers in human fleh. But though this ease is particularly nota ble from the audacious openness with which the crime-for such it is even in Turkey-was committed, the law is fre quently and flagrantly violated, as the columns of the local press bear witness. A short while back, a wretched girl es caped from the harem in which she was confined, and carried her scarified and bleeding shoulders to the nearest police station, where it was clearly proved that she had been stolen by a Cireassian dar ing the refugee panic an...

And If he raves of some "sweet dove," And gazes on a carte at times, You'll know he's suffering from love, Which much affects the heart at times.

THE CHRONICLE. COLFAX, - - - LOUISIANA. GO AWAY! With a bumpy swish and a curdled roar, Sweet Mary's churnl g'es drumming: Young Reuben lcns onl the low half-door, And hopes that the butter's corning: Then sighs and sighs, and drops his eyes What words can his feelings utter ? "O, drop me down In the churn," he cries, "And make me into butter." She rests her hands, and asaing stands At sound of his word's a vagary: Then pliea the staff with a lightsoue laugh "O, go away!" says Mary. If a maiden's word means aught, they say, The opposite sense is in it: So Reuben linds in her "Go awayl" A "Just come in a minute." "I hope," says be. "I may make so tree," With a grin and a nervous stutter. " M answer should be to your ears," says she, "I I could but leave the butter."

His face grew grave, for be had only thought Of wedding cakes and ices sweet; But, if with lss of Auntie it were bought. The feast would be a doubtful treat.
