Purging the Eye of Recent Impressions. Every one knows, (says a writer in the London RlnUler.) that ow ing to the peculiar relation that colors have to each other, it is difficult, in arranging a collection of pictures, to prevent them injuring one another ; but the fact is not "so generally familiar, that the impression produced by a color upon the eve- does not ceaSC IDimediatl !y tho eve is removed from the color."

Settling a Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 25 May 1856

Settling a Bill. Mr. Thompson, proprietor of the " Atlanta House." (Atlanta, (ia..) Ls well known as a votary of eccentricities. We were highly amused bvtey at the recital of the following tat hnnge of civilities between the Doctor and a traveler, who called at the office to "settle his bill," when the Doctor happened to be behind the counter. " What do ymi charge?" asked the traveler. " Well," rct'lied the Doctor, humorously, " if we charge your bill, it w ill be a dollar, but cash down, only fifty cents." " You may charge it, then," said the fellow, coolly turning on his heel, and passing out he took his seat ill the cars. The Doctor, half amused, half angry, followed, and confronting the stranger, asked if he did not intend to pay the bill. " Certainly not —I told yon to charge it." wattle bland reply. The Doctor was non-prossed ; but placing his fore-linger for a moment thoughtfully beside his nose, " Stranger." said he, •■ when you come this way again, bring your box aud stay a...

One of the Climates. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 25 May 1856

One of the Climates. The climate of the Khasia mountains, which lie northeast from Calcutta, and are separated by the valley of the Burrampooter river from the Himalaya range, is remarkable for the inordinate full of rain —thegreatest.it is said, which has ever lieen recorded. Mr. Yule, an Knglish gentleman, established the fact that in the single month of August, 1811. there fell 261 inches of rain, or twenty-two feet, of which twelve and a half feet fell in the space of five consecutive days. This astonishing fact is confirmed by two other Knglish travelers, who measured thirty inches of rain in twenty-four hours, and during seven months above live hundred inches. This terrific rain-fall is attributed lo lhe abruptness of the mountains which face the Hay of Bengal, and the intervening Hal swamps, two hundred miles in extent. The district of the excessive rain is exceedingly limited : and but a few degrees west, rain is said to Ik 1 almost unknown, and the winter falls of .-now sel...

Dahlins and Pinks.

In Dr. Dihdiu's" Hibliomnna," 1811, I find the following, to which I call your attention, as being a curious result of the dilltgence of a calculator anil lhe cruelty of a schoolmaster : " A Herman magazine recently announced the death of a schoolmaster in Hiiahia, who, for fifty-one years, had superintended a large institution with old-fashioned severity. From an average inferred by means ol recorded observations, one of the ushers had calculated that in the course of his exertions, he had I given 911,500 callings, 151,000 floggings, 'JOiMioo custodes, i:iG,(l()0 tips with the ruler. 10,200 boxes on the car, and 22,700 tasks by heart.

Women and Men. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 25 May 1856

Women and Men. If we draw a parallel between woman and man, t is the former who gains throughout by the comlarison. A poet would say. that if Cod had made vomui! smaller than man, it was in order to finish icr more perfectly. Her superiority has no need 0 be demonstrated : it is read ut first sight on her ■osy and velvet cheeks, on her line und satiny skin, vhich is without a vestige of animal pilosity ; whilst he skin of man retuins. by its hairiness, all the diameters of the covering of a beast. (hi this ac;ount. woman alone bears in her aspect the stamp )f humanity. Man then is more animal; woman, nore Itiiititin. Man is more carnivorous ; woman nore herbivorous, and. therefore, less impure : for larillieiuaaaets is an abcration of humanity and a ■mi-return to the diet 0 f beasts. Cood sense, and wit, which is tbe gaiety of good icii-o. are essentially feminine. The Uennans call pod sense mutterwrtr —thai is. mother-wit.
