ti I, p THE CZAR NICHOLAS. Wo liavo read with much interest a lengthy and well written letter in the London Morning Chronicle, from Sir Charles Shaw, a military of licer in tho British service, upon the subject, which is now the most engrossing one of all others, of tho Russian and Turkish armies, and the prospect which the Sultan has beforo him of maintaining his position against the Czar in tho existing war. Although the views entertain ed by the writer of this letter aro somewhat dif ferent from those often expressed by us, yet they are apparently, in Komo respects well founded, and deserving of attention. Wo have no doubt that the greatness of Rus ftia in regard to arms is more imputed than real. The military history of that power, when critical ly viewed, clearly indicates that such is the case. Tho Circassians, themselves barbarians, and few in number, have for twenty years defied the power of the Czar; tho Poles of 1830, with raw troops, withstood his veterans, and were at la...

f h THE TURKISH EMPIRE. . The frequent use of the words "Sultan" " Porte " &e., &c.,in the newspapers publishing nccbunts of affairs in Turkey at the present time, are erroneously understood by many per sons. "The Sublime Porle" is the official title of the Government of the Ottoman Empire, and not the title of any ojlcer of the government, as many suppose it to bo. , The Ottoman Emperor is called Sultan or Orand Sultan, or Grand Seignor, according to the fancy of the person speaking or writing. They all mean the same thing. Pacha is governor of a province, and accord in" to the importance of his province, ho in dU. tinguished by one or two or three tails. Every Pacha has his own army in his own province distinct from the grand army of the empire. Pacha of three tails has power to punish with death any agent whom ho employs, or any indi vidual who seems to threaten tho general safe ty. Bey is a sub-governor under the Pacha.

Numerous applications have been, and no doubt ' will continue to be, made for grants of land, In aid of the construction of railways. It Is not be lieved to be within the intent and meaning of the Constitution, that the power to dispose of the pub lic domain, should be used otherwise than might be expected from a prudent proprietor, and there fore that grants of land to aid In the construction of roads should be restricted to cases where it would be fortheintercstofa proprietor, under like circumstances, thus to contribute to the construc tion of these works. For the practical operation of such grants thus far, in advancing the interests of the States in which the works are located, and at the same time the substantial interests of all the States, by enhancing the value and promoting the rapid sale of the public domain, I refer you to the report of the Secretary of the Interior. A careful examination, however, will show that this expe rience is the result of a just discrimination, a...

iVom the Hollander. OUR STATE. She has within herself all the elements neces sary to place hor among the first of the western states in wealth and power. She can boast a right royal domain, nnd n queenly welcome can she offer the worthy stran ger, of whatever climo or kindred, wh eks n home on her shores. Is he a trller of the soil ? For a moderato price, he can choose from the broad prairies, rich as the valley of Nilus, from tlo openings, whose scattered trees and gentle undulations scarcely offer hindrance to the plow, and whoso soil yields the cereals almost sponta neously, or from Iho timbered lands, whose strength of soil is attested by centuries growth of M tall ancient trees." All have their peculiar advantages, and either of Ihcm will bountifully reward the labors of the diligent husbandman.

Yt WHY DO MEN SHAVE 1 For several years past It has occurred to us that a vast amount of time and money is lost in shaving our faces. If a person commence at 18, and live until 70, and if he employs 30 minutes three times a week for shaving, he will have lost 4,056 hoars. Suppose we call eight of . those hours a day for useful pursuits, we find 507 will jiavo been lost. A person can read twenty pa ges per hour in a common size book. In 4,056 hours one could read 324 volumes of 250 pages eachl Now, consider how much valuable in formation might bo acquired in reading that number of good books. Some people shave themselves six times a week ; then double the amount of timo is lost. '.The price of shaving in this country ranges from five to fifteen cents say by average, eight cents. If a man shave three times a week from 18 to 70, it will be 8-, 112 at 8c, is $648 96. If he shaves six times a week, at the same rate, it will be $1,297 92.

IN THE CARS AT NIGHT. When night has closed around the cars, when tho looks must be shut, tho landscape on either side is bidden in tho dark, and there is nothing to do bat to ride steadily onward with folded arras,' talking intermittently ns the trampaty-trap of the train allows you, but thinking mainly, it is curious to notice the different moods of the same engineer, as you run along into the darkness. Here is one, clearly, who is a born conservative. We are already two hours behind our timo ; yet we have tho right of way, and th telegraph says from station to station that the track is ciear. Over every mile, therefore, the passen gers ride grumbling; at every stopping place the accumulating discontent becomes more and more audible. Small difference it makes to the easy going man who is fingering "the machine" at tho head of the train. Evidently he has no 'mind to break his own neck, and don't mean to let the passengers break theirs. Tho loss of time was not on his part of the li...
