The ivliliiIiio-iost in llic New Castle
jail-yard had seven vieliins yesterday.
Three boys, wlio had stolen something
like lift ecu dollars, got ten laches ajiieee.
Twenty lashes, were applied to the harks
of four other prisoners who had been
convicted of larceny. Sheriff Clark did
not handle the cat in a particularly
forcible maimer, and the men who were
Mriing up in the pillory didn't seem to
mind the blows much. The whipping-
iost has greatly degenenited m late
years. There was a time when it was
applied indiscriminately lo thieves and
felons of high and low"degrce, Now it
is mainly iicd as :t scare-crow for
chicken-thieves, sncak-lhieves and er-

youths, a time when some of the Blue

put into the pen known aS1 the pillery
and made to expiate their offenses
against the law and morality by" a forced
ombrace of the whipping-post.
As a child the writer remembers hav

were bv law compelled to wearihe let

coats as long as they remained within
the boundaries of that State. Other
people, a little older, will recollect how,

highly respectable citizen, for some .act
of dishonesty was publicly whipped

tended to his business in per.-on. and it
is saiil by those who frequented his

his movement that no one eer caught I
ight of the badge of his di-gracc whilst I

time, when Delaware was more rigid in
her righteousness than .-he is to-day, it
was held by those who made and those
who administered the laws that di-hon-c-ty
was much more heinous when en
gaged in by those placed by social posi

surroundings than when indulged in by
those templed by neces-Hy and evil
companionship. Consequently, when a
prominent citizen was caught stealing
or forging, his punishment vvas always I
made heavier and more severe than tTiat

classes coiuempiousiy kuow ii as poor

Among the most beautiful, highly
cultured and charming women of the
State some thirty years ago wen- the
four-daughters of "a high official who had
the misfortune to be born kleptomani

zens of the town in which they resided
that they had inherited this mania from
their mother, who was :i constitutional
thief. These girls would take anything
I they could lay their hands on, from
' mouse-traps to fishing-tackle. The :t'-

I fore, no particular trouble about the
! peculations of the.-e young ladies until a
, new storekeeper came to town, who, on
receiving the Usual intimation lrom their
father, said to some of his neighbofs:
"Kleptomania be hanged; it's nothing
but thiefomania, and if they were poor
women they would have it thrashed out
of them at "the whipping-post. If they
come into my store to do any stealing
111 have them arrested and whipped as
quick as if they were chicken-thieves."
Xo one believed the fellow would carry
out his threat, but he did. Two of the
sisters came into his place, and after
thev were gone lie missed a bundle
of "gloves. He followed them up the
street, called a Constable, had them ar
retted, searched, and . would have had
them committed to jail as conimo-i

would not be remitted by the ("overnor,

came round the third time. Wild with
pain, the dog leaped aboard the train
and plunged into a crowded car. just as

An Interesting Bialogne.
Ensconced in a corner of a Broadway
-ar. the other morning, on my way
down-town, reading the Daily Viand, I
listened to the conversation of two
oung ladies, which I reproduce through
the medium of Vuck for the benefit of
the world at large.
These girls were well, if not fa-hiona-blv.
drc-s-cd in becoming morning
shopping-dresses. One. the leader of
the conversation, was attired in a dark
red nlusli tbrht-littimr iaeket. with a
shaiu-lv hat mid feather jauntily set on
a head of black hair. She was pretty, ,
i i . . . .
and her face was ifot destitute of intel
ligence, and she could have given jxiints
to her companion in rapidity of .speech.
Th' other was a blonde, with little
curled bangs running all over her fore
head. She might almost have been
handsome had her expression been le-s
doll-like and .simpering. She wore a
cloak technically known as a "circu
lar," which, round a white neck, was
fa-tened bv hammered silver cla-ps.
The voices of both were pitched in a
nither high key, and. as there were few
people in the car, I received the full
benefit of the conversation.

The wonl happy is a relative term;
that is, when we call a man happy, we
mean that he is happier than some
others with whom we compare him.
than the generality of others, or than
he himself was in some other situation
thus, speaking of one who has just
compassed the object of a long pursuit;
"Now," we say. "he is happy''; and
in a like sense, compared with the gen
eral lot of mankind, we call a man hap
py who possesses health and compe
tency. In strictness, any condition may be
denominated happy, in which the
amount or aggregate of ple:isure ex
ceeds that of pain, and the degree of
happiness depends upon the quantity of
this excess. Happiness does not con
sist in the pleasures of sense, in what
ever profusion or variety they be en
joyed, liy the pleasures of sense, I
mean as well the animal gratifications of
eating, drinking, and that by which the
species is continued, as the more re

easurcs oi music, paintin
architecture, gardening, theatrical ex- !

etc. These pk
se pleasures continue
but a little while at a time. his is
true of them all. especially of the
grosser sort of them. Laying aside the
preparation and the expectation, and
computing strictly the actual sensation,
we shall be suqirised to find how incon
siderable a portion of our time they oc
cupy, hovv few hours in the twenty-four
they are able to fill up. ,
These pleasures, by repetition, lose
their relish. It is property of the ma
chine for which we know nt remedy,
that the organs by which we perceive
pleasure are blunted and benumbed by
being frequently exercised in the same
way. There is hardly any one who has
not found the difference between a gratifi
cation when new and when familiar, or
anv pleasure which docs not become
indifferent as it grows habitual. The
truth seems to be. that there is a limit
at vieh these pleasures soon arrive,
and from which they ever afterward de
cline. They are by necessity of short
duration, as the organs cannot hold on
their emotions beyond a certain length
of time; and if vou endeavor to com
pensate for this imperfection in their
nature by the frequency with which yon
repent theni, you suffer more than you
gain, by the fatigue of the faculties, and
the diminution of sensibility.
These pleasures, after all, have their
I value: and as the young are always too
' eager in their pursuit of them, the old
J are sometimes too remiss, that is, too
studious of their ease, to be at the

of tin Maeev brothers were lo-t, but
the National Line did the right thing
by them, and they were transferred to
the Kngland, arriving safely at New
York, as said.
The brothers Maeev wore plain but
comfortable clothing, and an air of j
great confidence. Their whole lug- '
gage was contained in a leathern satch-1
