The Vead-Polnt in Kind Tension. It is a common subject of marvel that criminals in presence of immediate exe cution are usually self-possessed, and often exhibit singular composure. The doomed creature sleeps through the nieht before his violent death, and rises 1 . 1 L . 1 1 oouiposeu io pass uiruuKa toe orueai. The exceptions to this rule are few, and there is no reason to suppose that the individuals wno aispiay greater emotion, or who are prostrated by the agonizing prospect of death, feel their position more acutely than those who preserve control of their denieauor. It is a prev alent but groundless error to suppose that tho state of. mind in which most capital offenders meet their doom is one of scare or paralyzing amazement. They retain every laouiiy, lasie, consideration, nd even fancy. They f reauentlv erive tokens of especial thoughtfulness, and are punctilious in the observance of rules and tne aaopuon oi measures to minim' iae their own pain, and the trouble and sympath...

Sanderson deals nt considerable length with tho subject of elephants. Many of his Miitcmuiits about tliu Indian elephant will bo found to differ from the opinions commonly held, and also from the in teresting descriptions of tbo animal published by Sir Emerson Tuunenl. This book, Mr. Sanderson obsorves, bus removed some of the grossest niisnppre tensions regarding the elephant, but " it is full of the errors which are un avoidable when a man writes on a sub ject with which he baa no practical ac quaintance;" and in many plnces theory and fancy are said to be substituted for fact. . Thus, for instance, Sir Emerson Tennent tells a story of an elephant that leaped over a barricade mteon leei nign, whereas the animal can not take its four feet off the gTouml at the same moment, and can neither canter, gallop, nor t...
