COMPANY MANNERS. A well-bred man has _always thesame manners at home and in soeiety, and what is bad §a _t&us former is only worse in the latter. It can never be pardonable to swagger and lounge, oor to carry into the family-circle the Actions proper to the dressing-room.

A PHILOSOPHICAL CAT. Be la Oroix relates the following instance of sagacity in a cat, which even under the receiver of an air-pump discovered the means of escaping a death which appeared to all present inevitable. "I once saw," he relates, " a lecturer upon experimental philosophy place a cat under the glass receiver of an air pump for the purpose of demonstrating that life cannot be supported Without air and respiration. The lecturer bad already made several strokes with the piston in order to exhaust the receiver of its air, when the cat, who began to feel herself very uncomfortable in the rarefied atmosphere, was fortunate enough to discover the source from wfience her uneasiness proceeded. She placed her paw upon the hole through which the air escaped, and thus prevented any more from passing out of the receiver. All the exertions of the philosopher were now unavailing;. in vain he drew the piston; the cat's paw effectually prevented its Operation. Hoping to effect his pur...
