OTJS SATURDAY NIGHT.
Once more ! Another Saturday
nicht ! Acrain has the raven borne
it load of seven bundles back to
the shelves of the past, to be en
tombed till the final settling-1 An
other i weekly volume bound and
laid away each of the seven chap
ters the book contains sealed for
ever. No matter how many blots
or wrong figures, we cannot open
the volume to erase or change
the record is complete so far.
Our past is His present ! It is
Ills safe wherein is locked, beyond
the reach of our opening, or genius
of our keys, life records to be look
ed at whenever He wills. And
He calls i to settlement whether
we are ready or no. Oh ! that none
but good records were against any
of us ! o
But no more of this to-night. It
is not of the past, and yet it is !
All the week we have toiled with
brain and hand, till head and body
be weary, -lint now we can rest,
and lift from the cooling spring of
memory beadlets strung with pearl
drops, wherein and whereon are
beautiful pictures.' We see a thou
sand faces thus. Faces of those
who little think we sec them. We
hear the laugh, the voices of friends
us we shape the pearls thus drawn
out together we feel the earnest
grasp of heart warmed hands, and
live over again the years that are
lost, as jf traveler would retrace his
steps, and stop only at the most
beautiful places he visited in the
And as we look these scenes over
we feel lonely to-night. 5Xo one in
the room save ourself and the un
seen spirits which fill the air, and
which come and go at our heart-
stilled biddincr. The white dial of
the watch before us seems to-night
so much like a farce we know, often
have our eves rested thereon. We
listen to the " think-quick thinJc
quielc" of the heart-work of this lit
tle mechanism, and cannot half
The loved guests we hadiwith
us have gone. There were spirits
of those who have crossed the riv
er before us and the spirits of
thOjSe who to-night are dreaming.
1 or do you not know that when
we sleep our souls journey. Some
times to lands we know not of, as
we live. Dometimer to greet spirits
over yonder.! Sometimes wander
ing with spirits from over there !
And sometimes we wander amonr
old scenes known before we became
-of earth, as in the future state
we will roam the aisles of the
past whichls our present. When
we sleep, school is out, and spirits
play ! And sometimes we sleep
while awake and start, we know
not why 1 It is only the spirit
the soul which has been playing
truant, visiting miles away, return
ed to its penance ! (
When the old house is worn out
we move into another one ! And
this is all there is of death. And
were it not that all we love cannot
go at the same time with us to the
new home, we would not care how
quick the old house might fall.
At times we feel sad and
lonclv. Waves run not smooth,
like placid water, nor does life. It
may " over yonder," and this is
our hop? our full faith.
But to-night we miss somebody.
Our thoughts are with some one
else. The room seems very still ;
Nevtr so still before. We long to
be there, to be away from here to
look into certain eyes ado wn whose
depths are traced characters others
cannot, but which we can, read.
We would feel the soft, sweet
breatlVof some one-w wait the
pen for a hand to touch ours for
live fingers to rest as before on our
almost bursting temples, but alas !
the eyes are not before us only as
they glide jith the pen point across
the paper on which we write ! And
the dear fingers will not still the
throbs which pain us. The sweet
lips we have so often pressed the
very soul jipon and into will not
come to us to-night, nor can we
feel the throbbing of that heart
wherein we know our image is en
shrined as an emerald is surrounded
by diamonds pure and of wondrous
Did you ever wish somebody with

A PICTORIAL THANKSGIVING.
XastneA"er3'oncei'ed a more ef
fective satire than the picture of
"Uncle bam s Ihanksgivmg Dm
ner" Avith Avhich he illustrates
Jlaipers Weekly for November
gOth. It is not intended for sat
ire it is sketched as a picture of
that unrufile9 bcatudc Avhich is to
be the logical upshot of Kadical
socioliCTgy ; but it is none the less
satire for all thatCX A huge table
graced Avith a single turkey,
glass of celery, one or two covers,
and a nondescript piece de resist
a nee labeled Universal bBnrage,
is surrounded by twenty-eight per
sons Negroes, Chinese, English,
Arabs, French, Sioux, .Germans,
Irish, Spanish, Cubans, and one
American female, a fair faced gen
tle girl, Avho, to bear out the spirit
of the scene more perlcctljQ is
sandwiched between a huge Afri
can and a Chinaman. The African
Unbailed Avife and pickaninny are
seated by his side, but he exhibits
that preference for O Caucasian
which the frequent outrages on un
protected Avomen in the Southern
States attest, by directing his cour
tesies to the American girl on his
right. The portraits ot Lincoln,
Washington and Grant smile their1
benedictions on the impossible
abomination Avhite such cheerful
inscriptions as " Welcome," " Fif
teenth Amendment," "Come one
Come all," and "Free and cgual,"
embellish the pictured festival. If
this is Avhat Uncle Sam's Thanks
giving dinner is coming to not
any, thank you. S7 .Louis llepnib-
THE AGE OF OUR EARTH.
Among the astounding discover
ies of modern science, is that of the
immense periods that have passed
in the ccradual formation of the
earth. So vast were the cycles of
time preceding even the appearance
of man on the surface of the globe,
that our period seems as yesterday
when comparedSvith the epochs
that have crone before it. Had we
only the evidence of the deposits
of rocks heapetY upon each other
in regular strata, bythc slow accu
mulations of materials, they would
alone convince us of the long and
slow maturing of God's work on
earth ; but when we add to these
the successive populations of whose
life this world has been the theatre,
and whose remains arc hidden in
the rocks into which the mud, sand
or soil, of whatever kind, on which
they .lived, (hardened in tho course
of time, or the enormous chains of
mountains whose' upheaval divided
the periods of quiet accumulation
by great convulsions, or the change
of a different nature in theconfigii
rations of our globe, as the sinking
of lands beneath the ocean, or the
gradual rising of continents and
islands above or the slow growth
of the coral reefs, these wonderful
sea walks, raised by the littleQcean
architects, whose own bodies furn
ish both the building stones and the
cement that binds them? together,
and have worked t,o busily during
thelong centuries, that there are
extensive countries,chains of moun
tains, islands,and lon lines of coast
consisting solely of heiftcmains :
or the countless forests that have
grown upGflourished andvdecayed,
to fill the store-house of coal that
feed the fires of the human race,
if we consider all these records' of
the past, tl?c intellect fails to grasp
a chronology of which our experi
ence fufnishes no data, and time
that lies behind us, seems as mucf?
an eternity to our conception, as
the future stretches indefinitely be

THE ONONDAGA GIANT.
Profcajor Marsli, or Yale College,
Prononnceg it a. Humbug.
From the Buffalo Courier, Nov. 20.
Prof. O. C. Marsh, Avho occupies
Uollegehas lately examined thH
CardiiF Giant," and Ave are pei-
nutted to publish abetter written
byjliim to a . friend, containing his
views uiereon. r rom such a
source opinions are en
AVeight on such a subject, and it
must be admitted thaj, the testi
mony of Prof. Marsh finally settles
the claim of the monstrosity to btv
of antique origin. The following
is the letter: w
Rochester, Now 24, 18G9.
Dear : I saw the "Cardiff
Giant" last evening, and in accord
ance with your request I Avill tell
you what I think of) it, although I
can npAV only give you my conclu
sionsr The reasons for them Avould
make a longer letter lian I have at
present time to Avrite.
By special permission of the pro
prietors I Avas allowed to make a
more careful examination of the
statue than is permitted to most
A'isitors, and a A ery fcAV minutes
sufficed to satisfy me that my first
suspicions in regard to it Avere cor
rect, viz5-that it is of veryrcccnt
origin, and a most decided hum
bug. The figure is cut from a block of
gypsum, similar to that found in
Onondaga countA and at other lo
calities of the saline formation in
the State further Avest. The pecu
liar position of the body and limbs,
Avhich has occasioned so much re
mark, Avas apparently determined
in a great measure by the form of
the block of stoncAvhieh Avas Avater
Avorn on at least three of its sides
before the sculptor begairhls Avork.
These rough, Avater Avorn surfaces:
Avere not entirely removed Jn cut
tingr) Portions of them still re
main on the sides of the head and
on the feet and limbs, and have
erroneously been regarded as indi
cating for the Avork a high an
tiquity. The tool marks are still A'cry dis
tinct on different parts of the
statue, especially Avjiercjthev have
not boen obliterated by the imper
feet polishing Avhich evidently com
pleted the Avork. On the more
prominent portions of the figure
these marks appear as small pointed
depressions, but in the less exposed
places, Avhere the polishing Avas
more carelessly done, or omitted,
they are nearly as distinct and fresh
as Avhen first cut. In several pi aces:
they arqA'eiy near or immediately
surrounded by the Avater Avorn sut9
faces (e. g., in the opening of the
right ear), and therefore are evi
dently of subsequent formation.
Now, as gypsum is soluble in
about 400 parts of Avivterp a a cry
short exposure of the statue) in the
locality at Cardiff Avould suffice to
obliterate all traces of tool marks
and also to roughen the polished
surfaces but these are both quite
perfect, and hence the giant must
have been A ery recently buried
Altogether the Avork is Avell caE
culated to impose upon the general
public, but I dm surprised that any
scientific observers should not have
at once detected the unmistakable
T 0s.'. . ' . f,
In an old house in Danbury Ct.,
the otheiPday, a well-preserved note
was found, issued under the acCof

the motto, "31ii;d your business,"
and on the reverse side a circle
