Jennie &an?r Forty Tears Ago.
The Jenny Cramer mystery ! in
some points n repetition of tho Mury
Rogers case, which is ono of tho mem
orable tragedies of New York- Forty
years have elapse I since it occurred,
and yet it holds its place among the
mysteries of crime. Mary Rogers, like
Jenny Cramer, wa a pretty cigar girl.
She tended store for John Andirson,
who kept the finest establishment of
the kind on Broadway. Mary was gen
erally attractive, but it was uot known
that she had any special suitor. She
llred with her mother, who was a poor
widow, dependent on her daughter's
earnings. One Sunday afternoon in
the summer of 1819 she left her' homo
and never returned. Some persons
who knew her said they saw her in
company with a man dressed in naval
uniform. This was tho last seen of
her alive. Her disappearance was re
ported to the policy, but noimmediate
clue could be obtained. Four days af
terward, howevi -, a nude corpse w.us
found floating in tho waters of tho
Hudson near the Jersey s'loro. and this
was identified ua the missing cigar
girl. It was evi lent that she had been
foully dealt wit.'r, but this was all that
could be ascertained. A yawl boat,
which was also found floating idly in
the bay, was no doubt connected with
the tragic affair, but on this point there
was no certainty. The police mado
every possible search, but it was of no
avail. Tho old mother dioJ broken
hearted, and years have passed away,
throwing no light upon the mystery,
whose solution has now passed beyond
hope; and hence the sad tale of Mary
Rogers holds a prominent place among
the bloody secrets of New York.
A Sporting Parson.
A curious story is told by Land and
Water of an English parson of tho
sporlincr school: A marriage ceremony
had been fixed; bnt it wa a fine Sep
tember morning, the clergyman loTed
his gun, and so, forgetful of tho mo
mentous knot be was to bo the instru
ment of tj ing, he sauntered forth into
tho stubbles of his glebe. He had not
been out long before he got a shot;
but scarcely had he done so when he
heard the well-known voice of the par
ish olerk shouting after him, "Sir, tho
young people be ready, and be at tho
"Bless me," skid the old gentleman,
'I forgot; I'll bo there in a moment."
He hastily picked up tho partridge he
- had shot, and putting it in his pocket,
he hurried to the church.
In tho midst of the ceremony, some
thing was seen to be fluttering under
his surplice; and in a moment, to tho
astonishment of every body, out from
iU folds flew the partridge, for it had
been moro stunned than killed.
"O, dear! there goes tho bird," in
voluntarily exclaimed tho vicar. "It's
all right, sir," replied tho clerk; -Sho

Philip Bloch. of Toniea, 111., had a
couple of horses sick with a prevailing
distemper. He was advised to trv blis
tering as a remedy, by wetting tho
horses' legs from the knees down with
kcrsosene oil and setting it on lire. Ho
tried tho experiment in the stable.
Tho legs of both horses flashed in an
instant, and the animals began to
dance for pain. The inflammable oil
blazed up with fnrj-, sotting fire to tho
Btnblo and burning it. to the ground.
With great difficulty Mr. Block man
aged to get the horses out, and by
hard work several haystacks near by
were pulled down and saved from de
struction. A Southern negro, an ex-slave hired
a liel 1 from his old master to cultivate,
ho to receive one-third and tho master
two-third3 of the crop. Tho old negro
was honest, but not up in arithmetic.
Tho field yielded two loads, both of
which he put in his master's crib, and
reported to the astonished landlord:
"Dar is no third, sah; do land am too
poor to produce the third, sah."

Must Take Lower Prioes
In tho three fiscal years ended the
80th June last the United States ex
ported breadstuff to the value of $749,
480,445, or say 150,000,000 in round
figures. The greatest export as regards
quantity has been in tho year just
closed, but the highest in valuo was in
tho preceding jear, so that tho chief
effect of the rather better harvest in
England as in parts of the continent
last year was a lowering in prices.
United States farmers obtained less for
their grain, but, as European stocks
were very low last year, they sold moro
at the reduced price. This year stocks
are still low, but the harvest in most
parts of Europe will bo earlier, and in
tnany of better quality. Wo should
therefore expect to see the UnitedStates
compelled fr take lower prices still for
their crop, and probably they will sell
a smaller quantity as welL Tho enor
mous figures of tho past three years
serve, however, to explain in great
part the wonderful expansion in their
wealth and productive energy. Pall

Monkeys at Horns.
Some nionk"ys are pre-eminently a
sylvan race, and never abandon th. ir
native forests. "Each tribe or family
has its own particular district into
which individuals of other tribes or
spocies are nover allowed to intrude,
the whole commjtnitv nniting promptly
to repel any agression f this nature,
either upon their territory or their in
dividual rights. They are high'y gre
garious, never leave the recesses of tho
forest, generally take up their quarters
in the vicinity of a running stream, and
seldom approach tho habitations of
men. It is this spirit of unio.i and mu
tual defence which prompts the monk
eys to collect around travellers, anl,
by their chattering, grimaces, and v-ry
other means in their power, endeavor
to prevent them from intruding into
the little territory which they regard as
their especial property."
Sometimes, indeed, regular pitched
battles take place between two tribes,
such as thoso between the Geladas and
thellaraadryads, described bySchimper,
the well-known traveller, when sticks
and stones are freely used. Most monk
ey tribes, however, appear quite satis
fied if permitted to remain in peaceable
possession of their own localities, there
to carry on their customary occupa
tions. Some idea of their mode of life
may be gleaned from snch scenes as
those portrayed by Margrave in his ac
count of a species of buflbn termed
"Every day, both mornins: and even
ing," says tho traveller, "they assem
ble in the woods to receive instruction.
Wheu all coma together, one among
the number takes the highest place on
a tree, and makes a signal with his
hand to the rest to sit round, in order
to hearken. As soon as he sees them
Idnced, he begins his discourse with so
oud a voice, and yet in a manner so
precipitate, that to hear him at a dis
tance, one would think that the wholo
company were crying out at the same
time ; however, during that time, one
only is speaking, and all the others ob
servo the most profound silence. When
this is done lie makes a sign with his
hand for the rest to reply ; and at that
instant they raise their voiees together,
until, by another signal of the hand,
they are enjoined silenco. This they
as readily obey ; till at last tho wholo
assembly breaks up."
What the nature of this diseour-c is,
not knowing t lie speaker's language, we
have no means of ascertaining. Wheth
er he expounds tho laws of the commu
nity, or preaches morality to his hearers,
cannot even be guessed at ; but it may
be noted that in many manners and
customs somn tribes of monkeys are far
better behaved, according to European
ideas, than many tribes of men. Among
the higher types of monkeys, domestio
morality appears to be well preserved.
"Several kinds." says Darwin, "are
strictly monogamous, and associate all
the year round with their wives;" and
this tamo authority quotes the anecdote
of an intelligent Kandyan ohief, of
course a polygamist, who "was per
fectly scandalized at tho utter b xrbari
anistu of living only with on wife, and
never parting until separated by death.
It was," ho cynieally observed, "just
like tho Wanderoo monkeys. n
Although e.i h family lives separate,
it appears to bo n social terms with
the other families of tho tribo ; aid
when they remove their habitations,
all travel together in lar,c bands. Let
us suppose that the little orphan previ
ously mentioned, now grown up and
become ono of tho leaders of the tribe,
has taken unto himself a wife from tho
most attractive females of his species.
Let us supposo that they are a happy
duple, living in th; social freedom of
their native wood and know ing nothing
of the doings of the outer world, when
suddenly a party of travellers appear
upon the scene and ruthlessly despatch
tho young bride. The sequel, to quote
Forbes iu his "Oriental Memoirs," was
as follows :
"On a shooting party one of my
friends killed a female monkey and
carried it to his tent, which was soon
surrounded by f.rty or fifty of tho
tribe, who made a great noise, and in
menacing posture advanced toward it.
On his presenting his fowling-pieca
they retreated: but "no stood his
ground, chaptering and menacing in a
furious manner. He at length came
close to the tout door, and finding that
his threatenings wore of no avail, be
gan a lamentable in aning, and. by
very expression of grief and supplica
tion, seemed to beg the body of the de

He took it up in his arms, eagerly
pressed it to his bosom, and carried it
off in a sort of triumph to his expecting
companions. The artless behavior of
this poor animal wrought so powerfully
on the sportsmen, that they resolved
never moro to level a gun at ono of tho
According to their custom of carrying
away their dead and wounded, it may
be presumed that our hero bore off his
murdered bride and buried her, in
accordance with the habits of his tribe,
beneath a cairn of leaves. These creat
ures, as we know, feel the most intense
and overpowering sorrow for their de

proaching to human intelligence min

Belles and Bachelors.
It takes a Western belle to speak her
mind without fear or consequences.
One of these inevitable old bachelors of
society had been visiting one of these
young ladies, and as he rose to go he ex
pressed himself as charmed with her
society, and hoped to see her soon
again! "Oh, as to that, sir," said the
belle, "since you are not a marrying
man. I think there is no need of your
calling airain!" So that settled the
matter. The fact is, Saratoga is a poor
matrimonial market. There is littlo
use of match-making mammas pinch
ing themselves in purse to give their
daughters a season or two at tneSprings
with the view of securing an eligible
husband. There may eligible men in
the world, but the most of them are al
Society is flooded with wretched old
bachelors and seedy widowers, who
monopolize the company of the belles
to such a degree that a young man is
cast comparatively in the shade. If, as
one lady declares, all widows ought to
be cremated with their defunct hus
bands, then all old bachelors and wid
owers ought to be drowned so as to
bo forever out of the way. It is true
these old follows are handy sometimes
for an escort just as wo take pieces of
cracked china fivm the cupboard when
there is not enough better ware to go
round; but, if a young lady indulges in a
taste for antiques, and allows herself to
be escorted hero and there by a train of
wretched old fossils, who take up her
time and attention, and have not the
slightest idea of proposing, as the years
go by she will find herself fading into
a passe belle, whom tho younger men
will neglect and the more youthful
beauties will deride as an "old maid."
"Great jimmy, Spragglcs! What's
the matter W you? I never saw you
looking so completely worn out."
"Why, the fact is, I do'i't feel exactly
right; to tell you the truth, I'm just
back from the seaside."
Anna Dickinson finds fault because
her name is not mentioned among tho
subscribers to the Lincoln monument
at Springtield, 111., when she gave one
twentieth the whole amount. Certain
ly she has a reason to find fault.
A Rapid Descent.
"You make me think," John Wil
liams said, dropping on a sofa beside a
pretty girl last Sunday evening, of a
bank whereon tho wild thyme grows."
"Do I," she murmu ed; "it is so
nice, but that is pa's step in the hall,
and unless von can droD out cf the
; front window before I cease speaking,
! you'll have a wild time with him, my
j own, for lie loves you not." His de-
! scent was rapid.

English and Amerioin English.
An American friend of mine, in re
sponse to the question by an English
man (an exceedingly positive and dog
matic person, as it chanced), Why do
Englishmen never say 'I guess," re
plied more wittily than justly, "bjcauso
tl.ey arc al ways so positive about every
thing." But it is noteworthy that,
whereas the American says frequently
"1 guess." meaning "I know," the
Englishman as freely lards his discourse
with the expression. "You know,"
which is, perhaps, more modest. Yet
on the other side, it may be noted, that
the "down E ist" American often uses
the expression. "I want to know" in
the same sene as our English expres
sion of attentive interest "Indeed.
Among other familiar Americanisms
may be mentioned the following :
An American who is interested in a
narrative or statement will say "Is
that so?" or simply "So !" The expres
sion "Possible !" is sometimes but not
often heard. Dickens misunderstood
this exclamation as equivalent to "It is
possible, but does not concern me ;"
whereas in reality it is equivalent to
the expression "Is it possible?" I have
occasionally heard the expression, "Do
tell !" but it is less frequently heard
now than of vore.
The word "riijht" is moro frequently
used than in England, and ued also in
s- nses different from those understood
in our English usage of the word.
Thus, the American will say "right
here" and "right there," where an
Englishman would say "just here" or
'just there, or simply "hero" or
"there." Americans say "right away"
where we say "directly." O.i the other
I and. I am inclined to think that the
English expression "right well," for
"very well" is not commonly used in
Americans say "yes, sir," and "no
sir," with a sense different from that
with w hich the words are used in Eng
land ; but they mark the differe ice of
sense by a difference of intonation.
Thus, if a question is asked to which
the reply in England would be simply
"yes" or "no" (or, according to the
rank or station of the querist, 'yes, sir,"
or "no, 6ir"), the American reply
would bo 'yes, sir," or "no, sir." in
oiiiited as with us in England. Bui if
the rep'y is intended to be em. ha ie,
then the intonation is such as to throw
the eruphas's on the word "sir" the
reply is "yes, sV," or "no, ." In
passing, I may note that I never heard
an American waiter reply "yessir," as
our English waiters do.
The American use of tho word "quit"
is peculiar. They do not limit the word,
as we do, tothe.Mgniticant "take leave"
in fact, I have never heard an Ameri
can use the word iu that sense. They
generally use it as an equivalent to
"leave cfF' or "stop." (In passing,
ono may notice as rather strange the
circumstanco that tho word "quit,"
which properly means "to go away
from," and the word "stop," which
n;eans to "stay." should both have
come to be used as signifying of "leave
off.'M Thus Americans say "quit fool
ing,' for "leave off playing the fool,"
"quit singing." "quit laughing," and
To English ears an American use of
the word "some" sounds strange viz.,
as an adverb. An American will say,
"I think some of buying anew house,"
or tho like, for "I httve some idea of
buying, etc. I have, indeed heard tho
usage defended as perfectly correct,
though assuredly there is not an in
stance in all the wide range of English
literatuVe which will justify it.
So, also, many Americans defend as
good English the use of the word
"good" in such phrases as the follow
ing : "I have written that note good,"
for "well;" "that will make you feel
good" for "that will do you good," and
in other ways, nil equally incorrect.
Of coulee, thero are instances in which
adjectives are allowed by custom to bo
used as verbs, as for instance, "right"
for rightly," etc., but there c in b ; no
reason for substituting the adjt-ctivo
"good" in place of ttie adverb ".vt- i,"
w hich is as s'.ort a wo.d n I at least
equally euphonious. The tn-jof "real"
for "really," as "real angry," 'real
nice," is, of course grammatically in
defensible. The use of the word "elegant" for
"fine" strikes English ears as strange.
For instance, if you say to an Ameri
can, "This is a fine morning," ho is
likely to reply, "It is an elegant morn
ing," or perhaps oftener by using simp
ly the word "Elegant" It is uot a
pleasing use of tho word.
There are some Americanisms which
seem more than defensible in fact,
grammatically more correct than our
English usage. Thus, we seldom hear
in America the redundant word "got"
in such expressions as "I have got."
etc., etc. Where the word would not bo
redundant, it is wt generally replaced
by the more euphonious word "gotten,"
now scarcely ever heard in England.
Yet, again, we often hear in America,
such expressions as "I shall get me a
new book," "I have gotten me a dress.
"I must buy me that," and the like.
This use of "me" for "myself is good
old English, at any rate.
I have been struck by the circum
stance that neither tho conventional,
but generally very absurd, American f
our English novelists, nor the conven
tional, but at least equally absurd. En
glishman of American novelists, is
made to employ the more delicate
American:sms or Anglicisms. We gen
erally find the American "guossing" or
"calculating" if not even come c arsely
Yankee, like Reade's Jc-shua Fullalove,
while the Englishman of American
novels is almost always very coarsely.
British, even if he is not represented as
using what Americans persist in re
garding as the true "Ilenglish hac
cent." Where an Am rican is less
coarsely drawn, as Trollope's "Ameri
can Senator," he uses expressions
which no American ever uses, and none
of those Americanisms which, while
more delicate, are in reality more char
acteristic, because they aro common,
all Americans using them. An I in like
manner, when an American writer in
troduces an Englishman of the more
natural sort he never makes him speak
as an Englishman would speak ; be
fore half a dozen sentences have been
uttered he uses some expression which
is purely American. Thus no English
man ever uses and no American may
be recognized at once by using sueh
expressions as "I know it" or That's
so," for "It is true," by saying "Why.
certainly," for "certainly"," and so
forth. There are a great number of
these slight but characteristic peculiar
ities of "American and English Eng
