MONDAY EVENING, august 1. I)b McGLYNNaays "thetimo will speedily r-ouie when there will be so few hours of labor that work will only become a healthy past ime." From the earliest period of re? corded time, and way beyond that, into the dim and undefined realms of tradition, man has bad to earn his bread by the sweat of bis face. What has been, shall be again, and there is nothiDg new UDder the sun. No man wants to work, and no sensible man wou'd work if he could live comfortably without working. But it is the fate of hu mrntty that man must work to live, and all wise men know that to oppose the inevita? ble is worse than folly. How could humani? ty exist if work were only a pastime? The wonder is that people ordinarily sensible about other things, should be so utterly daft about the matter referred to as to counte? nance a man who talk? as Dr. McGlyDU does. _ The State democratic convention, which will meet next Thursday, should recollect, in the preparation of the platform upon whi...

hf m ' A r.KXAJr^DRlX. TUESDAY EVENING. AUGUST "j. Ex I'k ksidknt Jefferson DAVia is op? posed lo prohibitory laws, for tho reason that the world is governed too much. He couldn't have a better reason. To people born and reared under .free institutions, it seems provokingly absurd that they cannot drink a glass of beer, or wine, or liquor, un? less by permission of tho authorities of the com nunity in which they live. If a man's driak cm be governed by other people, so can his food bo, aud so can any thing else which heretofore has been governed entire ly by himself. Tho utmost extent of tin law's restriction upon a mail's pulmonal lib erty should ba to prevont him from injuring or incommoding others. As diunken men do either injure or incommode others, they should be punished, severe!) if necessary; but because they render themselves justly liable lo punishment, is surely r.o reason why nil the well-behaved people <>;' the com? munity in which they reside should be put to inc...

There was a meeting of about forty Catholic priests there a few weeks ago, at which it was decided to issue the call for the convention.

The objects of the convention will be, it is said, a consideration of the diner ences existing between the German and Irish Catholics.

I' mn?m fcettt THURSDAY EVENING, AUGUST 4. A Whopper.?A phenomenon unparal? leled in the annals of astronomical science occurred at Clayton, Ga., one day last wees, which, from the light it throws upon the hitherto open question of the habitability of the other planets will prove of great value to scientists. At 7:45 o'clock p.m., there fell near that town a spherical metal ball on the surface of which appear graven charac? ters which give conclusive evidence of its having been molded by intelligent hands. Dr. Beyers, in whose possession it now is, said this evening: "I was returning from a patient's house, situated some seven miles from the town, where I had spent the latter part of the af? ternoon. I was ascending a long hill, when my horse suddenly picked up his ears, and, on glancing ahead, my eyes were dazzled by a brilliant white flash, resembling a light? ning stroke, and immediately following came a sharp hiss, as of escaping Bteam.
