Vanity of Xlfe The following from a late speech of Mr. Benion, is avouching exhibition of the vanity of political ambition r I have gone through a contest lo which I have no heart, and into which I was forced by a combination against life and honor and from which I gladly escape. What is a seat in Congress to me f I have sat thirty years in the highest branch of Congress, have nade a name to which I can. add nothing, dnd I should only be^ anxious to, save -wlliat has been gained? I have domestic afferjtions sorely lacerated in these latter times; a wife whom I have never neglected, and who needs my allention new more than ever; children, some separated from me by the expanse of oceans and continents, others by the slender bounds which' separate time from eternity. I touch the age which the psalmist assigns as the limit of manly life, and must be thoughtless indeed, if I do not think of something beyond the flitting and shadowy pursuits of Ihis life, of all .of which I have s...

A Model Baby There was only one baby among the members of the late excursion party up the Mississippi to the falls of St. Anthony. That baby was only six months old—a son of Henry Farnam, Esq., the engineer of the Chicago and Rock Island Railroad. When I he baby was first brought on board the Golden Era, some of the company shrugged their shoulders and others said " humph." One crusty old bachelor muttered, " we may look for squalls now," a man with mustaches, who passed for a wit, sighed for the days of good King Herod. The baby meanwhile looked about and crowed a little, and then quietly entertained himself with sucking his St. Well, from the time we left Rock Island on Monday evening till we returned on the. following Saturday, not a cry or the suspicion of a cry was uttered by the baby. He was indeod a charming little fellow, always bright and placid, and ready to meet half way those who were disposed lo be attentive. Of the sensation of fear he seemed to be utterly igno...

Crows pah Coqnt Three and no ' ' ' Iflore. A few months since we were riding in a siage coach with several genilemen, when the conversation turned upon the subject of crows, and many .interesting anecdotes were related. One gentleman said that he knew that crows could Count—at least as far as .three—for he had ofjen 1 proved it. ' Being troubled with crows in the field, he had often al tempted to shoot them. But they knew what a gun was as well ap he did, and therefore kept out of his reach. t He then concluded to put up a small booth in the field, and .place some dead carrion—a dead horre, within gun shot. From this place he supposed he could fire at them when they flighted to eat. Whenever he entered the booth, the crows would all sit on the distant trees, and not one of them would come near until he was gone. Then all would alight except the sentinel, who remained to give warning if danger approached. The gentleman finding his plan to fail, thought he would deceive them. ...

" Mrs. Jones," said a gentleman one day last summer, when' railroad accidents were so numerous, to a lady whose husband was a brakesman, " Mrs. 'Jones , do you not feel Worried about Mr. Jones while he-is on the cars, in view of the many accidents (hat are now daily occurring?" i«-^fo, not at all," replied the contented lady, " for if he is killed I know I shall be paid for it, ' because Mr. Williams got forty dollars for his cow that was run over by Ihe cars a few days since." The Danville Herald has a devil who thinks this is a great world. He says lhat at the office they charge him with all the pi they do find, while at the boarding-house they charge him with all they don' t find. He seems lo doubt the propriety of (be proceedings.

Kissing Hardly any iwo females kiss alike. There is as much variety in the manner of doing it, as the faces and manners of (he sex. Some delicate creatures merely give a slight brush of the lip. This is a sad aggravation. We seem to be about to " have a good time," but actually get nothing. Others go in to it liko a hungry man to beefsteak, and seem to chew up our countenances. This is disgusting and soon drives-diway a delicate lover. Others struggle like hens when burying themselves in Ihe dry dirt. The kiss ' is won by greatexerlions, and is not w6JTt(f-as much as the trouble it cost. Now. we are in favor of* certain shyness when a kiss is proposed, but it should not be continued too long; and; when the fair one " gives it," lei her administer it with warmth and energy. Let there be soul with it. If she close her eyes, and sigh deeply immediately after it; the effect is greater. She should be careful not to " slobber" a kiss, but give it as a humming-bird runs his bill in...

I The Slave Trade is by no means abolished, though almost every Government professes to view it with displeasure. Into Cuba and Brazil (and the devil knows what other places) hundreds of poor Africans are yearly introduced. A few weeks ago, the American vessel," Gray Eagle," was captured upon the coast of Cuba, but not until several hundred slaves had been landed. In five years ninety-five American vessels sailed from Rio Janeiro to the coast of Africa, for a freight of human flesh and< blood.

Quickest Route from London to Shanghai. Collins has won for the Uniled States greater victories upon ihe ocean than ever did Nelson for Great Britain. His line of sieamers has contributed more lo establish our supremacy in steam navigation than any fleet which ibis Government con ever arm and equip. The crossing of the Atlantic westward under his auspices in nine days and a half, the time of the Baltic's last run, gives to our nanon a substantial fame—one that will prove more valuable to it than would be the storming of Sevasiopol lo the allied pow¬ ers. We believe that in a few years Collins, or somu other of our enterprising citizens, will build steamers that will make ihe voyage from New York lo Liverpool in, seven days and by making his line a weekly one, carry two-thirds of the mail matter that crosses the Atlantic. Cunard has a decidedi advantage over him at present by having a weekly contract with the British Government, for which he receive per annum $750,000, or thereab...
