Prom the Tyrol, from Switzerland, from Germany, from Brittany come well ascertained accounts of the popu lar belief in certain wild spirits of the Wood, who are painted in all the most frightful shapes the imagination can suggest, and are characterized by their delight in every possible form of malev olence. They kidnap and devour children, bewitched the catile and lead men to lose their way iu the forest. They can assume anv size, from the most diminutive to the most gigantic; nor is any form of bird or beast an im possible personation of them.

Among all the sports of summer or winter, in-doors or out-doors, there is none that excites more popular inter est, when it can be seen, than the tug of war, and there is hardly one that calls lor more strength and endurance than this game. It has experienced a peculiar evolution from a crude unrec ognized game played by country boys, to one of those sports which take their places legitimately among organized pastimes by reason of their rules and systematic way of going about it. It is a distinct feature to-day of college and regimental exercises, and the great est emulation is aroused, between the different institutions which are repre sented by tug-of-war teams.

We turned inquiringly to our guide, who smiled and asked us to touch, the block of Carrara with our fingers." "We obeyed, and imagine our surprise to find that the enormous mass weighed less than a bundle of feathers: Its history is as follows: A freight train arriving one day from Italy, and carry ing six such squares of marble, a custom-house officer remarked an unusual indentation in one of them, and, sus pecling that something was wron, had the bright idea to break off a corner with the aid of a hammer, when, miracle I the marble was sheet iron and hid 23,000 francs worth of Venice lace! Here in this corner is a pile of logs, ready, to all appearances, for the fire. Error. These logs...
