We hear such a good one on
John Hammond that we can't keep
it, and yet scarce durst tell it. We'll
risk It, however and stay out of
town a day or two. Somebody got
into. the boat the other day "to cross
the ferry," and when in mid water,
the current was bo swift that the
boat went down stream. "Ding
bang you," said John, " why the
bang don't you row across? Point
up stream." Finally, John was so
concentratedly interested in the mat
ter that when the passenger did at
last come to land, John jumped in
and pulled for the opposite shore.
No sooner had he got into the cur
rent than the boat began to observe
the laws of force which require that
thn mninr'itv shall do the Principal
part of1 the ruling, and down stream
she was going. All the on-gazera
remained quiet. Not a word was
lisped; not a ripple of laughter
floated to John over the surging
waves of the forceful Loup, but ev
erything was as serene as the sunny
April heaveua above them, except
ing the fat man in the boat who was
rowing and puffing, and puffing aud
rowing for dear life to head that
ding-banged boat up stream and get
across, but all to no purpose, and
the Captain, in despair, jumped out
and walked to shore. Seeing the
unruffled counfeuancea on the bank,
he shouted, as ouly John can shout

There appeared in last week's
Journal, published by request, an
article headed !'Awful," concerning
what was to take placo on the earth,
between 1880 and 1887, according to
the notions, of a professed astrolo
glst. It was published by us,-not as
a matter of news, not,aB a matter iu
which we believed, but as giving the
whole of an article that had been
quoted by our exchanges, here and
there, by1 pieces, without connection
and as entitled to some credence.
At this time in the life of tho Jour
nal, it ought not be necessary to say
that its editor Ib not a believer in
aatroloerv. witcEcraft, conjuration, or
any such lhingfk"WeL had" often been
asked, "What abotit this awful pre
diction concerning tlie perihelia?"
and we concluded to simply give the
whole of it, as we found it in circu
lation. - But it-is w6nderful, isn't it,
that in this age of the world, and in
this Country of schools, and books,
and teachers j in thla age of science
when tbeatoms of things are almost

that there should be such a fearful
amount of superstition ; such believ
