BaflUd by loe, AN ENGLISH OPINION OP THE FAILURE OP THE LATEST ARCTIC EXPEDITION —FURTHER ATTEMPTS AT EXPLORING THE REGION IMPROBABLE. In its main point, or at least in that part of the enterprise which most ap pealed to the imagination of the public, success has beon denied. They went out to endeavor to reach the pole, and Capt. Nares reports in two words, the re sult of this part of the undertaking. "Pole impracticable" is his summing up of the position. The next sentence in the telegram, "No land to northward," explains the reason why the pole is held to be impracticable. It was never hoped that either of the ships could sail to the mysterious center where it would be south all around the horizon. The plan to be acted upon was that the two vessels should go together to the highest latitude which could be attained before last winter, which it was hoped would be somewhere on the north shore of Lady Franklin strait, in latitude 82 de grees north, or thereabout. Here the Discovery wa...

Woman's Clothing. Of late there have been many signs that women, at least, are becoming alive to the strong control of clothes upon their fate. From time to time we hear of revolutionary associations instituted to free them from the weight of ruchings, and burst for them the fetters of Valen ciennes and ribbons. Now it is a band of sedate English women who are pledg ing themselves to a convenient, if dole ful, livery of perpetual black; now it is the patriotic and contrite ladies of Prus sia who, under imperial patronage, swear resistance to their too fondly obeyed ty rants aud natural foes, the milliners of Paris; now it is a fiery squadron of American amazons who are enrolling themselves to do battle with the hostile world for health, happiness and trousers. We all find food for mirth in such as sociations, for we are agreed that dress is a trifle, and the idea of an association at all about such an indifferent matter, reminds us of tho famous tempest in a tea-cup—and when trouser...

SATURDAY, JANUARY 20, 1877. The Court House. Under the above head we are not going to say much about the crazy old building back on Reserve street, dignified with the name of Court House. That building has long ago outlived its day of usefulness, and become the fit abode of owls, bats and rats, instead of being the com fortable and convenient building it should be for the transaction of pub lic business and a safe depositary for the public records. For the present, and until the county can do better, it will answer very well as the place to hold the semi-annual terms of the District Court. This court is not long in session and comes but twice a year. Clarke county, in view of its present financial condition, is not prepared this year to begin the con struction of a Court House with such dimensions and architectural beauty as would be a credit to the county. But it is prepared, and can better af ford, to provide a building suitable for county offices and a safe place to keep the reco...

The Mew Utopia. AN ENOIBH SCIENTIST'S PLAN FOB A MODEL CITY. Dr. Richardson is an English scien tific person who has invented a new style of scientific city, which is shortly to be built upon land already secured for the purpose. All that remains to be done is for Dr. Richardson to build his city and to invent a population will ing to live in it. It is to be hoped that he will succeed in both theso endeavors, for the plau of this new city, as set forth in an elaborate pamphlet, is extremely ingenious and attractive. Hygeia, as the model city will be call ed, is to be built on the slope of a hill, so as to afford ample facilities for drain age, and for sliding in icy weather. It is to be laid out in rectangular form, and tho streets are to be paved with wood set in asphalt. There will be no street railways, but underneath each of the principal avenues will be under ground railroads. The houses, of which there are to be exactly 27,000, will be built of brick, and placed on vaulted fou...

[Continued from Ist page.] ferent tribes with which treaties have been negotiated, and rh the promises of protection against their enemies. The Indians are the wards of the na tion. Though in past years they may have been cheated by agents, yet the Government made ample provision for their protection and maintenance, as an equivalent for the land taken from them, The suggestion has been made that the Indians be deprived of their arms, and thua rendered incapable of injur ing the whites. Such a suggestion savors more of sentimentalism than of wisdom. For which mouse would tie the bell to the cat's tail? What agent, unless protected by a strong military force, would dare to make such a proposition to them? The merits of William Perm would not save him from being a burnt offering. The hint of such a measure would be instantly followed by the most fero cious Indian waY that ever disgraced our history. Nor is this all.

A range of hills clothed all with bare, black A blackened by December frost, Its eastern limit by a dark stream crossed. That now o'erflows, and murmurs, ill at ease A low chant, chiming with the wistful breeze; Then, farther, dead, dark pines with trunks gray-mossed, And wide, wide wastes in the flat distance lost, And a sad sky close-bending over these. I know, dear friend, 'tis not a pleasant land, And vet, niv heart is touched to sea it so, For it hath other phases, fair and grand ; I've seen the summers grace it long ago.

Pulpit Peculiarities. One good lay brother found difficulty in mouthing the names of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, and when he came to them said naively: "Please, the samo three as before." One who had resolved he would take people by guile said in expounding, "All the world went out to be taxed," etc.: "This is a figure of speech oalled by the learned a hyperbole, a sort of ex aggerated statoment," and added by way of application, "If I said you were all asleep it would be a hyperbole, for not more than half of you are now in that Condition." Great care should be taken to be very exactly truthful in pul pit ministrations. A great gun of a popular body, in one of his sermons, said "A striking illustration just comes to my mind," which was very telling, but a friend of mine, a physician, hap pened to hear the preacher deliver the same discourse again, when the same apt illustration came to his mind in the same place in tho sermon. My friend got into a way of skeptical suspicions th...

SATVRDAY, JANUARY 87. 1877. Wayside Notes. **Toke" is a very easy hone, light footed a* a doe and fleet enough for anybody, at least he was for us one day on the Fourth Plain road, when sud denly frightened he bounded away at tbe rate of a mile in about 1:80. But there is nothing vicious about him, and if handled with care will prove faithful and true to bis rider. We turned his head last Monday towards the East, and facing the driving wind cantered through the woods on the Mill plain road. Tliofthi»;h wind which blew so fiercely the night before, had Itrewn tbe road with quantities of twigs, moss and small brush from the lofty tops of the firs, and occasionally a king of the forest was found prostrate across the road. It is wonderful how well these tall bushy topped tirs will resist the force of a heavy wind. Their top* will sway through an arc of twenty five or thirty feet and still their roots remain*firmly in the ground. It seems •till more remarkable when iv a storm, one has fa...

Burial Customs. When a student, in Germany, I was buying soap one day in a shop at the Rhenish town of Bonn, when a funeral came down tho street. That particular cake of soap —pink it was, and almond scented —and that particular funeral w as ever connected in my mind. Evon when the last small fragments were slipping i through my fingers, melting away alto gether in the diminutive German wash ing-basin, they recalled to my imagina tion the brown frocked monks, the cross bearer, the boys white-robed and singing, the voices of the priests, and the wreath of flowers upon the pall. Pious people crossed themselves as the train passed down tho middle of the street, w here ev erything made way for it —not that there was then, or ever is, much going on in Bonn, or much traffic to be disturbed by death passing through its midst. Some one was taking the last journey that day with befitting solemnity, and it set me thinking of others I had seen pass along the same road. In Italy 1 have met fune...
