What Happened. A very respectable Kangaroo Died week before last In Timbuctoo; A remarkable accident happened to him; He was bung head down from a banyan limb. The Royal 1..0n made proclamation For a day of fasting and lamentation, Which led to ■ curious demonstration: The elephant acted as if he Were .hunk— Be stood on his head, he trod on Ids trunk; An over-sensitive she-tin ilia Declared that the shock would surely kill her; A frisky, guy and frolicsome Ape Tied up his tail with a yard of criipe; The Donkey wiped his eyes with his cats; The Crocodile shed a bucket of tears; Tbe Rhinoceros gored a yonng Giraffe Who had the very had taste to laugh; The Hippopotamus pulled Ulld blew, To show bis respect for the Kangaroo; and a sad but Indignant Chlmpansee tJuawed all the bark from the banjan-troc. —St. ATiehdat.

I cant meeting last Friday night, during the course of which Kearney made a speech, saying that one hundred thous and men were arming and drilling in the Mast to support their follow work ingmen in California, and that the time for action was near nt hand, Upon reading this information the question naturally arises why are these men aiming, and who are they going to tight! There are no other armed men in the country except the regular U. s. army. To attack them would be treason and rebellion, and so great n patriot as Kearney would not dream of lighting the United States. The time for action being near at hand, Kearney's armed forces, then, are about to precipitate themselves upon women and children, unarmed citizens, Or places of business. There ear. be nothing else to attack: the arming of these men can only b...

Arthur Pendannia in describing the Ives of country gentlemen snvs: "They spend long calm days, tilled with mystic reverie.'" which passage as 1 read it re cently, drew from me a smile partly of wsduess and partly of amusement so an tipodal to Pendennis' picture was the life S»fcare and bustle ami responsibility that sur Virginia country gentleman had now ■days.

A Section of Victor Hugo's History of a Crime. The high hills were suddenly invaded by an immense black army. Not a cry of command was heard. Two hundred and fifty thousand then came, in dumb uess, aud formed a circle about the Fond ' de Givoune. The circle was composed as follows: The Bavarians, right wing, at Bayeilles, on the Meuse; near the Bavarians the j Saxons, at La Moncelle aud at Daigny ; opposite Givonne, the Royal Guard; the Fifth Corps at Saint-Menges and Don chery, the Wurteinbergers; Count Stol berg and liis cavalry at Donchery; iv frout, toward Sedan, the second Bavarian Army. All this was achieved in spectral fash ion, in order, without a breath, without a noise, through the forests, the ravines, and tlie valleys. A sinuous and sinister j match. A dragging along of reptiles. Scarcely was a murmur audible be- i neath the thick foliage. The silent battle ' ■warmed in tbe darkness while awaiting daybreak.. The French army slept. Suddenly it awoke. It was ti captive. Th...

A citizen was near Lac Court O'Reilles looking up some land, and while passing down an old logging road leading to the lake, came upon the carcass of a large black boar ly ing in the road. Upon examining it he discovered several wounds upon the head and body as it' made by a knife. Continuing Ins journey, a few rods Trom the Bear lie found the body of an Indian, mangled and torn in a most horrible manner, lying; a little to ime side of the road. One side of liis lace was completely torn off, and the body, stripped of most of its clothing, being lacerated in a frightful manner. The ground for •Ome distance around had tlie np pearance of a terrible struggle. Near the old Indian was a rifle barrel cov ered with blood and hair, tlie stock broken off and lying in several pieces upon the ground. He evidently tired one shot, and before having time to reload the bear had grappled him. I n liis right hand he had a bowie knife, which probab...

Is it Possible to Fly? An interesiing lecture on the above subject was delivered by Mr. Brearey, the honorable secretary of the Aeronautical Society in London, a few weeks ago, in which he explained the principles upon which aerial navigation must be conduct ed, and indirectly condemned the pro posal to reach the pole by means of bal loons. Flight, lie said, was merely a me chanical action, capable of imitation, that it was unassisted by air cells or other con trivauces for affecting levity, and that the balloon as a means of locomotion was useless to man, except in the waftagc. Having explained the rudiments of aerial science, and detailed the various experiments made by English and foreign inventors, showing what their progress had been, he pointed out the curious fact that light as the atmosphere is in pro portion to the weight of water, the rarer medium was capable of supporting a creatine much heavier tli in itself, while water, 8(10 times heavier, only sup ported a fish of abo...

\ ANCOU VEII IN DEPEN DE \T. THURSDAY, MAY 16, is:s. THE KKDSKIX. I'ttiler the surveillance of the mis sionary policy of our Government, the Indians of Moses' band are becoming restive, and anxiously inquire, "oh! why does the white man follow my path," or words to that etlect. Moses no doubt feels that he is abundantly able to take care of himself, and that his people, if let alone, will take care of themselves the same as white people do. Thev are opposed to confinement upon reservations and very reasonably de mand the privilege of doing as they please, so long as they do not meddle with the rights of others. The Indians of Oregon and Washington would do well enough if let alone. There would lie no trouble if all this reservation nonsense were done away with. If they were treated as men, able as they are to take care of themselves, and put upon their good behavior, permitted to go and come the same as white people, and punished in the same way for their offenses against the law, o...

"V ashon Island.—The Intelligencer 1 gives the following description of this prominent landmark of Paget Sound: "Thislarge and heavily timbered island, which is eleven milles long, with an average width of two and a half miles, is now contributing its full quota to the lumber product of the Sound. Its dark, shading forests reverberate with the crash of the woodman's ax. while its shores are skirted by loggers' booms. | There are now, and have been during ; the entire wintei, five logging camps on the island in active operation, i These have an average force of about 1 eight men each. Some eight years ago a logging camp was started there, but by some means the parties chanced to locate in a patch of rotten and conse quently refuse timber. They got out a large boom of logs before discovering the fact that they were comparatively worthless. The iogs being unmarket bale, the project ended in failure.
