THURSDAY EVENING, JULY 14. A Music Box in Her Bustle.?Said a Custom-house inspector the other day to a reporter of the Ei Paso, Texas, Inter-Repub can : Very few peopie think it is wrong to smuggle, and if they can manage to slip a few little trinkets over the line unobserved they have no hesitancy in doing so. About a week ago there was a little excursion party in Paso del Is'orte, Mexico, and I kept a pretty sharp lookout; but one of the ladies would have passed almost with my eyes, shut she was such a pretty girl and bad such an innocent, babyish face. I bad just asked her if she had any dutiable articles, and she had just said, "Ob, no, sir," when 1 beard a peculiar mufiled and whirring sound, and then something tingling out the old tune, "My Dream of Love is O'er." It seemed to come from under her skirts, and then I re? membered hearing of a clock striking once in a woman's bustle, and tumbled to the situation. You see, that innocent little thing had bought a tiny music-box in ...

? - %.. ! %\ W \* ?^^^^ ? E h:XANDRIA. FRIDAY EVENING, JULY If,. N'oTwithstanding the tariff on iron ore, considerably more than a million tons of it were imported last year. American iron manufacturers finding it impossible to bavo ttiMr demands .supplied, have had to send Hhioad, and pay not only the freight but the duty. Of course they added the extra cost to the price of their products, and ex? acted the whole of it from American con? sumers, as, with that additional cost, it was impossible for them to sell any of their prod? ucts in foreign markets. It is readily seen, therefore.that the tariff on iron ore not only restriots the manufacture of American irun, and raises the price thereof to Ameri? can consumers, hut, by confining the mar kels ofthat iron to those of this country, les nens the demand therefor, and necessarily reduces the demand for, and consequently the wages of, American labor. Mr.. SHERMAN says he will uot be a can? didate f >r tho republican nomination for ...

& ? -t mMm teilte. FBIDAY EVENING, JULY 15. "There Were Great Men in Those Days.''?An opinion was current in the last century that our ancestors, at some time in tlie past, were the equals or superiors in size to the largest men now to be found. M. Hetirion presented to the Academie des In? scriptions, id 171S, a memoir on the varia? tions in the size of man from the beginning i?f the world till the Christian era, in which Adam was given one hundred and twenty three feet nine inche?, and Eve one bun? dled and eighteen feet nine and three fourths inches. But after the first pair, the human race, in his imagination, suffered a regular decrease, so that Noah was only one hundred feet high, while Abraham phrank down to twenty-eight feet, Moses to thirteen feet, the mighty Hercules to ten feet eight and a half inches, and Alexander the Great to a bare six feet and a half. The commu? nication, it is said, was received with en? thusiasm, and was regarded at the time as a "wonderful dis...

A ? \ ?tuu&w t?mitt. SATURDAY EVENING, JULY 1G.

An inquest wa3 held, but it brought out nothing definite. While a verdict was being rendered by the jury a young man named Davis, who had been drawn by curiosity to pay a second visit to the spot where the corpse was round, dashed among the jurors with badly tattered clothing, a bloody club, and a solu? tion of the mystery. The unknown man bad been killed by field rats. The young man had himself been attacked by them while working in a hay field, and had to fight for his life. When he approached the fatal spot he said the vicious little creatures sprang upon him from all sides, and al? though he killed many of them it seemed only to whet the courage of the survivors.
