ODDS AN LT- ENDS. The average age of the twelve Eng? lish bishops is 7i> years. "Strange how wet it is!" "Be stranger still if it wore dry with such heavy rains." The king of Spain took his first soa bath at Sa:i Sebastian two weeks ago. His eldest sister, the princess of iho Asturias, aged 9, carried him in. During a session of the grand lodge of Odd Fellows at Rome, (Ja. Aug. 21, Col. Adolph Brandt, a prominent law? yer of Atlanta, while sneaking on a resolution, fell dead from apoplexy. The prophecy of a mad man that a disastrous earthquake would shock London on Aoril S. 1730, caused thou? sands of persons, particularly those of raid* and fortune, to pass this period in their carriages and in tents. A starling was discovered at the bottom of a coal pit near Airdrie, and on being taken to the surface it next day returned to the bottom of the shaft, some 900 feet. The building of big steamships is said to be overdone. The result will probably bo sharp competition ami a redaction...

THE SCHOLAR IN Afv*iRICA. His Honl Vnlao Is Not Appreciated by tlie Muxs of the IVople. In his judgment of the scholar the average American citizen has usually only one definite idea?that he is a tlreamer quite out of contact with ac? tual, life. Consider for a piotnunt the genuine amazement and uismay with which the average citizen regards a serious attempt on the part of educated men to exert their due influence in the Solution of a great political or ceo-; nomic probtont. He seems to look upon them somewhat as he would watch a group of monkeys escaped from their cage and engaged in some mischief; the effects of which they cannot be made .to comprehend; or, to substitute a simile somewhat more complimentary, that a throng of ex? cited pa-1 senj^ors had attempted to dic? tate the management of a great ocean steamer. Of course no such view of scholarly activity in the |x>litical field will be submitted to. The men who devote their lives to the study of the records of human experi...
