FLOATING TANOIES. An honest man is not so suspicious as is a thief. Card parties for ladies are becoming popu lar. He who makes no mistakes is not yet on earth. Mary had a little lamb with which she used to tussel; she yanked the wool all off its b'ack and crammed it in her bustle. Love is a severe critic. Hate can pardon more than love. But a full, forgiving love is the grandest thing on earth, and enobles the po-sessor. "Don't you think that Miss Brown is a very sweet girl?" asked Henry. "Oh, yes, very sweet," replied Jane; "that is to say she is well preserved." HIe who turns against one who has done him personal favors and oft befriended him is worse than the one turned against, n.o mat ter how bad the latter may be. "Think I'd live in that building ?" ex claimed the lady who ran a boarding house. "Not a bit of it. Why all the doors fasten with bolts. There isn't a keyhole in the building."

ROSZJCRALNS VS. GARFIELO. SemeU.hhig About the Latest Sensatise at Washingten. CHIcAGO, March 9th.-The Time.' Wash. t ington special says : Some time during the i last political campaign a paragraph was pub lished, in which it was stated that General t Garfield had, during the war, preferred ser ious charges against his old commander, I General Rosencrans. Charles A. Dana made t the original charge. This brought out a note i from General Garfield to Rosencrans, in I which he distinctly said he had never been untrue to his commander in word or thought. Dana or any other liar to the contrary. Mr. Dana, to sustain his original statement, has printed a confidential letter from General Garfield, addressed to Salmon P. Chase dur ing the war. This letter, if genaine, gives the direct lie to Garfield, and for that reason has attracted much attention here, and shows him in the light of a double dealer and false friend. It is said that Fitz John Porter is partially responsible for the publica...

A YOUNG LAWYER'S. ADVENTURE. "Can I sit with you ?" "Certainly, sir." "Nice weather." "Splendid, indeed." "Crops growing finely'?" "Yes, couldn't do better." I was sitting in a passenger coach on a Wisconsin railroad, one day, years ago, when a good looking, pleasant-spoken man came along, stopped at my seat; and the above conversation took place, the latter part of it after I had given him a part of my seat. Now I'am regarded as a social man. I like a joke, a good bit; and I think a sour,-morose man, wiho uses his tongue only when obliged to, is bound to die of some terrible disease, and go to pome place of red-hot punishment. On entering a railroad car I always look about for a talkative man, and then get as close to him as possible, and drain him dry, if the journey is long enough. And I want to state one thing more. Left an orphan before I could realize the event that made me one,'I got kicked here and cuffed there, and "grew up between folks," as they say. I ought to have had, ...
