From the riotous tendency of many young * Grceleyites here, after the mantle of darjfa- c ness falls over law-abiding citizens, it*is j probable that Greeley money is being ex- J pentled here in profusion.

Fall of an Aerolite—\ Solid IVlelnllle Globe Plunges Thirteen Fret lino the Earth. [From the St. Louis Democrat, August _.] A year ago this summer Mr. John J. Murdock, who lives near Laclede Station, mentioned casually to Mr. Frank J. Bow man that he had discovered a peculiar hole in the ground in a meadow near his house, and said that for the life of him he couldn't imagine What made it. It was twelve or fifteen inches in diameter and seven or eight feet in depth. Mr. Bowman suggested an aerolite, but that was laughed at. To mark the place a fence rail was thrust in it, and it enclosed eight feet of rail before the bottom was reached. This summer the matter was again discussed, and various speculations were indulged in to account'for the peculiar opening. After the hay had been cut Mr. Murdock consented that the workmen should examine it. They immediately set to work, and, after digging down not eight feet but thirteen came upon a spheroid globo of metal, which was evidently an aer...

Goon Nature.—(loot" nature is one of the most precious commodities of life, both to tho possessor, and to all that come in contact with him. One may own an ex quisite picture, and yet, locked in his house, us beauty is sequestered, and few derive any pleasure from it. One having precious stones may -lash a moments Admiration upon spectators ; but good nature brings happiness to scores and hundreds ; and the bait of it is that it takes nothing from the possessor. There is so much care in life, so many that are victims of low spirits, so much of sorrow, so many that ore languid through sickness, or grief or watching, or want, that any one who can throw a ray of light upon their spirits is a benefactor indeed. Good nature is the most practical of all kinds of benevolence. It gives itself forth without measure. It shines like tbe sun into all places, high and low alike. It chooses nothing, but blesses all, without dis •rimination. It allays strifes, pours oil upon friction, lightens the...
