Marat. Marat was the editor of a paper which he named ihe J- ' ricnd of the People. It is as difficult to write without disgust of so grotesque a being, as to believe in the sort of worship with which he was regarded at Paris during the latter portion of his life, and after his death. Still, it is impossible not lo admit that nil we know of him is through the traditions of his enemies, of royalists, who never could forgive him the twenty-first of January, of Girondists, who could never forgive him the twenty-seventh of May. At any rate, his intellect, clouded as it was by a constitutional insanity, was probably not so mean or despicable as they have represented it. Vollaire was even so struck by a pamphlet of his, on the respective influences of the mind and the body, as to have reviewed it. Timon (M. Cormenin) says of him : "Marat was not an orator—- he was not even a mob speaker. But he was not without ability as a polemic; and he had shrewdness enough to tear it off" His ut...

The Equity Court in Alabama, When the Creek Indians inhabited Alabama, there were several magistrates appointed who had extensive jurisdiction to try causes without a jury. One of these magistrates was a well known character who resided in Turkey Town, an Indian village on the Coosa river. ' He had a marshal who was known in his tribe as " Moneycries." This magistrate was remarkable for his contempt of legal opinions,' and judicial fornix. " E-quily" was his hobby—iitnl when his notions of right and justice cauie in contact with law, the latter was forced to give wav. He thought the . ' customs of the Indians more " E-quilable" in many cases than the law of Congress, and he never (ailed in such cases to set aside the latter. <¦¦ Monevcries" cooperated heartily with "the court"—and by their combined efforts they managed to deal out justice, with certainty, hut sometimes with r. al In linn s.-v. i;\-. !"h.

Economy—What is it? . It is not economy to burn green wood. The water contained in the wood requires n certain proportion of fuel to drive it off, which must be doneas combustion proceeds; so that there is not only a loss of so much heat, which instead of . passing intoT the room, passes up the chimney, but the extra hauling amounts to abdtu one- sixth.of the whole. ' . It is not economy to keep a smoky house. The smoke blackens, the paint,, plasteringor papering—if there is any ; at any rate it gives a dingy and disagreeable tinge to the whole interior—spoiling- the complexion of the women and children, which is Worth something—causing weak eyes and uneasythroats, a great wear and tear of temper, ahd this makes life more uncomfortable than there is any need of. .

miscellaneous Selections. Touching Incident at the Land Office A Wisconsin paper relates the following interesting narrative of one of those real struggles ot the young, to assist their parents, which sparkle like diamonds along the pathway of human life. In trails like these there is a moral heroism manifested, which marks the pure golo\pf human character:— Business called me to the United States Land Office ; while there, awaiting the completion of trfy business, a lad apparently about 16 or l^LjWrslold, came in; and presented to-the recei\er/i certificate o( purchase /or 40 acres of land. I was struck with the countenance nnd general appearance of the lad, nnd inquired of him for whom he was purchasing the laud ; the reply, was " for myself, sir." I then inquired where he got the money ; he answered, " I earned it by my labor." Then, said I, you richly deserve the land. I then inquired, where did you come from ?— " New York," said he.

I almost see the warm blood seek The blue veins on thy brow, And glow upon4by pearly cheek—So life-like secmest thou.

* Music in Man. The Universaldisposition of human beings ^ from the cradle lo the death-bed, to express their fueling in measured cadences of sound, nnd 11011011, proves that otir bodies are constructed on musical principles, and that the harmonious working of.their machinery de-f pends on the movements ' of the several parts being timed to each other, and tlmrAhe destruction of health, as regards both bodjr and mind, may be well described as being put out of tune. Our intellectual and mortal rigor would be better sustained if we more practically studied the propriety of, keeping- ' the soul in harmony, by regulating the moven ments of the body; for we should thus .see and feel that every nffectiori which is not connected* with social enjoyment, is also destructive of individual comfort, and that' whatever tends to harmonise, also tends to promote happiness and health.

But he comes into his hig h office wilh the avowed purpose of endeavoring to carry out the principles and policy of Washington, and this should commend him to the affections of the American people.
