I 1 THE SIGNAL SERVICE. History of the OrpanlJuUon of Tills Use ful Aid-to Onr Milltarr Svstarri. The Signal Service of the United States was first made known in 1859. Major Myer, then an assistant surgeon in the United States army, announced his discovery of a system of signals by which orders of information could be transmitted by sight or by sound over distances varying from one to fifteen mile3 with the most perfect accuracy. The messages could be transmitted either by firing cannon, waving flags, displaying lanterns, throwing up rock ets or even "waving forage caps. Small flags were regarded as the most simple means of thus telegraphing, and with an" equipment weighing but sixteen pounds and an opera-glass messages were easily transmitted seven or eight miles. The system was fully tested by different officers, and in Jnne, 18' ). it was proposed in the Senate to establish the grade of "signal officer," that the inventor might have a su table rank, and instruct others in this ar...

'"'The Civil Service Bccord has ren dered the public a great service in securing and publishing a large collec tion of. statistics as to the changes which have been made in the various executive departments since the new Administration came in a year ago fast spring. The lack of such data hitherto lias prevented any thing like a comprehensive exposition of the facts, and it has consequently been impossible to show with any approach to exactness the real slate of the case. The accord? s tables enable us to get at the truth, and the showing is full of interest. The first thing which strikes one is the evidence that the Civil-Service law has been strictly enforced, which is furnished by the table of removals in the 'ckw lied servico," which is the term adopted to d-sinate that part of the .service subject to thj law of ls:j. -There are bout -O.GOU...

Few things are more simple than v marriage ceremony among the Gypsies, and a description of a wedding as re cently witnessed by the writer, will not. we believe, prove uninteresting.

CHAPTER L There was every appearance of a southwesterly wind. The coast of France was rapidly fading from sight The sun stood within an hour of setting Dcyonti a bleak foreland. The north wind, which had rattled us with an acre of foam at ur bows right away down the river, was dropping fast and there was barely enough air to keep the royals full. The whole stretch of scene was lovely at that moment, full of the great peace of an ocean falling asleep, of gently moving vessels, of the solemn jrathering of shadows. The town ot Deal was upon the starboard bow, a warm cluster of houses, with a windmill on the green hills turning drowsily; here and there a window glittering with a sudden beam of light; an inclined beach in the foreground, with groups of boats high and dry upon it, and a line of foam at its base, which sung upon the shins...

One is in 3. . -pe at Ithiga, Switzerland, and tv. hi the United States, atilauch Chunk, Penn., and on Mount "Washing ton, in New .Hampshire. If one does not wish to use his pedal extremities, as the writer did, there are two ways of reaching the summit of Mount Washington; by the carriage from the Glen house on the east side and by the railroad on the west. Tourists often go up one way and down the other. A very satisfactory way of ,ldoing" Mount Washington is to go up on the west side by the unique railway affording magnificent views of forest yawning chasms and distant mounts. After spending the night on the summit, go down the east side by the stage road. This drive gives one a fine view of the mountains in the pine tree states, and a near view of that chasm of chasms, the gulf of Mexico, aud!.Mouhts Clay, Jeffer...
