VYe have received the third niiii'iler of
an interestiap; newspaper, recently started
at Bellevup, Nebraska Territory. It is a
good-sized, miscellaneous family paper,
independent in polities, and devoted prin
cipally to literature and general intelli
gence. It is published by S. A. Stkick
iiHD, formerly of this village, and speaks
well for the enterprise of the Publisher
ami the community whioh sustains him.

patrons will find a Counting-IIotise Al
manac, the value of which will be appre
ciated by nil.
Tall Pistol Shoot t hi;.
Colotvl Hay, of the British army, re
cently tried his hand with the Vulcanic
Repeating Pistol, a Yankee invention.
The pistol used on the occasion was nn
vight-inch barrel, which discharges nine
tails in rapid succession. The Colonel
fired the arm twenty-seven times, making
a number of shots which would do credit
to a rillemnn. lie first fired at an eight
inch diameter target at ouo hundred yds.,
putting nine balls inside the ring. lie
then moved back to a distance of 20i) yds.,
and fired nine balls more, hitting the tar
get seven times. He then moved back
one hundred yards further, a distance of
three hundred yards fr cm the mark, and
placed five of the nine balls inside the
ring, and hitting the "bull's-eye" twice.
The man who beats that may brag.
63" How little we know of the esc of
the various unemployed vermin surround
ing ns. That an immense amount of
motive power is annually wasted by neg
lecting that very elastic, industrious and
lively animal called a flea, is undeniable ;
and it was, therefore, with considerable
pleasure, we read in an English paper
A gentleman in Kirkaldy, Scotland,
has trained a couple of mice, and invent
ed machinery enabling them to spin cot
ton yarn. The work is so constructed
that the common house mouse is enabled
to twist twine and reel from 100 to 126
threads per day. To complete this, the
little pedestrians have to run 10 1-2 miles.
A half-penny worth of oat meal, nt Is. 3d.
per peck, serves one of theso treadwheel
culprits for the long period of five weeks.
In that time it makes 110 threads per
day. At this rate a mouse earns 7s. G.
per annum. Take off 5d. for board, and
Is. for machinery, there will arise (is.
clear for every mouse, annually. The
mouse employer was going to make an
application for the lease of an old empty
house, which would hold 10,000 mouse
mills, sufficient room being left for keep
ers and some hundreds of spectators.

.The Shell rish Traile in South-
The village of I Iambic, says the Lon
don Daily News, has for more than a
century been celebrated for supplying the
London market with the monster shell
fish, such as lobsters, crabs and crayfish,
which are caught near tho channel is
lands and along the French coast. They
are kept alive in sea water on board ves
sels, and by eating one another until they
reach Hamble; for as soon as one be
comes sickly and weak, it is overpowered
and euten by its more healthy comrades.
As soon ns the shell fish arrive at Ham
ble they are placed in a tidal walled dock,
where they are revived and fattened with
the offal of butcher's meat. Even here
the powerful make war upon the weak,
and devour them. Feeders and keepers
are employed at the dock', who, with long
poles hooked at the end, drag the fish
from their marine menagerie when they
are wanted for the market. The instant
the pole touches a fish, the latter grasps
it savagely with his claws, and does not
loose his hold until it is landed. When
large mainlines are required, the pond is
These shell fish are enormous crea
tures, the body with tho claws being as
long as a man's arm. As the lobsters
and crayfish climb nimbly up the sides of
their watery caravan, they look like a
collection of purple-colored monkeys or I
stunted baboons ; and there is something
frightful in tho appearanco and noiseless
ness of these chatterless creatures, climb
ing about their liquid den, and approach
ing tho surface to look at the spectator.
Close to Southampton quay, portions of
the flats are enclosed by banks, and are
called parks, into which ehipiouds of oys
ters are thrown in the course of a year,
where they are raked into layers and fed
and fattened. Care is taken in packing
them to allow the sea water to flow over
each oyster, impregnated with as few
rnuddy particles as possible, for if the lat
ter get inside the shells, when the fish
open thein to driuk or feed, the shells
cannot be hermetically closed again, and
the fish sicken and die. When the parks
were first formed, the inhabitants of South
ampton' were alarmed, and the local papers
declared that the rotting carcases of the
dead oysters would cause a plague. The
alarm, however, was unfounded, ns ex
perience proved, and the fish vanished
instantly and mysteriously as they died,
and nothing but the harmless shells re
mained. To account for this iatter phe
nomenon, it was rumored that the ghost
of Dando, the once celebrated oyster-eater
visited Southampton in the dead of the
night, and supped on the departed bivalves.
An old nmphibious creature however,
who was employed to park the fish, de
clared that the young crabs cat the dead
'tins, for he zeed 'em go in artor 'em.'
This turned out to be the fact. The shal
low water in the vicinity swarms with
iniuuto crabs. As soon as an oyster sick
ens or dies, its shells open, and these
small crabs attack and devour the invalids
or corpses. Sometimes, however, tho
marauders are deceived, and

Disregard of Death.
It is curious to watch, as I have done,
the utter contempt of death with which
the Turkish soldier inarches to meet the
foe; he knows that his di.tiny has been
fixed since the day of his birth ; he knows
that he must die whenever his time comes,
ond that a whole park of artillery would
miss him, if his destiny so decrees it;
finally he knows that if he fall in battle,
he will go straightway to Paradise and
won't he be better oil" there than in this
world of cares? The same feeling, indeed,
predominates wilh the Turks whenever
the approach of death is felt. I have seen
them dying here in the hospitals, and the
calmness of their demeanor would shame
many a Christian ; let tliein once bo per
suaded that they ure booked for another
world, and tho surgeon may lock up his
medicaments again no persuasion will
induce the Turk to attempt to frustrate the
designs of Providence. Correspondent,

extravagance had been for some years n
source of constraint in fantilics ;" and it
was noticed no marriages were contracted,
since the young men, frightened nt the
bills that loomed up in the distance, pre
ferred to live in celibacy. The mothers,
recognizing the inconvenience of a stato
of allairs, encouraged by themselves, have
resolved to bring about a salutary reform,
and with this view they hare formed n
Committee, which meets once n week.
They have declared open war with extra
vagance, ami every inemher announces
Dlibliclv. the retrenchments made in her
own household expenses. They say that
happy results have already been obtained,
and that similar associations arc to be
formed in the neighboring towns.
