THURSDAY EVENING, AUGUST 18. A Relic of the Lost Asm?Over 300 years ago an Indian chief, who ruled over a t ribe on the Nopo River, near the the head waters of the Amazon, died. In accordance with the custom of the tribe bis head was cut off and the skull split up the back. All the bonea were then removed from the head and the eyea were taken out. By some pro? cess known to the Indiana of that locality at that time, the head was shrunk to one-tenth of its original proportions, the face retain? ing its color and the iiesh becoming bs hard as stone. By reason of the shrinkage the hair became matted so closely together that it is impossible to part it sufficiently to reach the scalp. The head has been sent to New York. The knowledge of how to preserve the heads is not known to the In? dians of the present day; that it is one of the lost arts. The bair upon this miniature head is black and luBtrous and about four? teen inches in length. The lips protrude and are punctured with boles, fr...

FBir AY EVENING, AUGUST 19. ! Communicated. A Leaf from the Note Book of a Pri? vate Gentleman. With a political bee in my bonnet, [ have been waiting for many a year, While i've been enticed by many a hope, And pursued by many a fear: i've hoped that at last tho time would come When i my debut could mako, And of political honors strewed around I'could my choice take. But I fear that if I wait till then That my head will hoary be, And a desire to be up aud adoiug Is what has got bold of mo. I have set my sail, bnt alas! in vain, To catch each popular breeze, For whenever i fully expected a thaw Wo were sure to have a freeze. In the State debt issue I thought I'd found A hobby that 'twould pay to ride ; But all of my foolish county men thoy Took straight to the other side. Then I swung my sails and took a tack, And to the democrats camo right back. Wheu the local option boom was up i thought i'd make my jack, And rido into some office Upon his watery back.

SATURDAY EVENING. AUGUST 20. As was predicted, and as is only natural, Gen. Mahone's vanity,as recently exhibited by his groundless assumption of the credit for moat all the appropriations inado by C.ngreBS to Virginia since the war, will do hiui more harm than good with his own party. The Valley Virginian, the leading republican newspaper in tho Stale, Fays: "If Gen. Mahone's claim is well ground? ed, then the republican members of tbr House from Virginia have been a mere col lect ion of idle blockheads, without brains, energy or iufluence.

SATURDAY EVENING, AUGUST 20. The MOON and the Wkatheb.?During ii long storm persons who are well versed in weather lore are often heard to console themselves with the prediction that there will be a change of weather when the moon changes. Nasmytb and Carpenter charac? terize as a popular error, in its most absurd form, this belief that the gradual turning o. the moon's face toward and away from the sun could, at certain points, upset the exist? ing condition of our atmosphere, generate clouds, and pour down rains. Ia England (and the same may be said of much of Amer? ica) the weather changes about every three days, and there is a change of the moon every seven days, so that many coincidences must occur. Those who believe that "the moon rules the weather" always credit such coincidences to lunar inlluence. But theory is untenable unless it applies to every case and unless the same effect is always pro? duced by the same cause. To euppose that a change of the moon will turn dry weath...
