Nobody means to suspend feeling or giving thanks till ccxtyear, anu it isn't out of placa ! to remind onrselves of some sje^ial occasions i of feeling good the pro-ient ye^r. There hen 1 been talk of war, wh:i*b has been well checked | by the strong hand on the reins of power. | Ten yearn ago or more, this talk would have been followed by dacgerous action, and every i woman who reaps this may feel glad that her 1 sous or hrotLers are spared to pursue peace-ful courses, and the sword which has pierced many women's he.irts within the last decade is turned away from hers also. New York knows too well what democratic rule m£ans, and the hearty thank God, and the thrill of relief all over the city when the news of ! Knyes' majority was received, after the gloom j of tbe Tilden accounts, effaced even the do- I prossion caused by the heavy slate of busi-ness for tho tini?. "It is true business has | been bad in the city, and thousands of people i are ia distress, but business men have wor- I r:ed through some how, and there has been | no more suffering than nvaal. At least "we . have had no epidemics,;tha health of the oity i hefi been good, an 1, altogether, if we can't be j thankful that we have had a prosperous year I we can be that it has been no.worse.

Ha next tried brick-bats. After piling up a vast aud inteusely in-teresting collection, tbe former difficulty su-pervened ; his great heart broke again ; he hold out his soul's idol to ihe retired brewer wbo possessed the missing brisk. Then he tried flint hatchets and other implements of Primeval Man, but by and by discovered that the factory where they were made was sup-plying other collectors as well as himself. He tried Aztec inscriptions and stuffed whales— another failure, after incredible labor and ex-pense. When his collection seemed at last perfect, a stuffed whale arrived from Green-land and an Aztec inscription from the Cun-durango regions of Central America that made all former specimens insignificant. My uncle hastened to secure these noble gem3. He got the stuffed whale, but another collector got the inscription. A real Cundurango, as pos-sibly yon know, is a possession of such su-preme value that, when oncc a colloctor gets it, h8 will rather part with his family than with it. So my uncle sold out, and saw his darlings go forth, never more to return; and his coal-black hair turned white as snow in a single night. Now he waited, and thought. He knew an-other disappointment might kill him. He was resolved that he would choo?e things next time that no other man "was collecting. He carefnlly made up his mindr and once more entered the field—this time to make a collection of echoes.—Mark Twain. THE CENTENNIAL BUILDINGS.—The Kansas aud Colorado building, one of the largest of the centennial headquarters, estimated to have cost $12,000, has been sold for $600 to Ken-nedy & Wilson, hotel keepers of Ocean Beach, •N. J., who are reported to have made ar-rangements for its re-erection at that place. The expense and trouble incident to removals, and the prohibitions against the erection of frame structures within the fire limits of cities and towns, have doubtless operated to dis-courage the purchase of buildings of tbe char-acter of this one, the result beigg. that, with all their centennial reminiscences, aside from their comparatively substantial build, the amounts realized from their sale represent not more than from one-sixth to one-sixteenth oj their cost. The New Jersey building, costing $12,r.OO, is offered fo»$4,000. This, like the Michigan building, has been pat together with bolts and screws in such a manner as to. lif- Of course there is no business now, hut it is reasonable to expect a-revival bttwc-en this and the holidays. And then, for a month or two, we cxpcct lively times. TRICES o r LIVING. In the present state of business it is fortu-nate that living is very cheap. Coal is only half of last year's pricc^, and m?at? are way down. Thanksgiving turkeys sold tor la cents per pound, chickens for S and 9, and fruits and \egetables are as cheap as could be wished. Good beef can be had for 12 aud lf> cents a pound, and everything else in propor-tion. Still bec-f at a cent a pound i3 dear to the man who has net get the cent. The man who has work, at no matter what wages, ii comfortable, but there are so many out of work. An advertisement for a bcok-keeper in a morning paper, recently, brought over a thousand applicants before ten o'clock. I have within a week s-^en men of thirty, com-petent book-keepers, applying for positions as errand boys at a week ! Heaven aend tbe revival of business that these hungry men may find something to do. PIETBO. A F R E N C H V I E W O F T H E E X H I B I - T I O N . In relation to the centennial exhibition M. Louis Simonin thus sums up the results of his .observation in a letter to the Bevne den Deux Mondes: "America can feed Europe with corn,wheat, preserved meats and liv4 stock as it has sup-plied it with cotton ; it has clothed Europe and it can nourish Europe. It can get along without Europe as far as regards iron, steel, copper, machinery nnd most of the manufac-tured products. It will not cease, however,to give Europe the gold and silver whioh is need-ed for all transactions, for the mines of the United States yield more than the mines of tho whole world. As for coal, America will soon produce as much as England, that is, as much as all the rest of the world, and its car-boniferous deposits are twenty times greater than those of England. America will learn more and more how to get along without Europe, but Europe will not be able to get along without her. It is trnly a new England which is rising across the sea*, and. which already threatens the old England in all her markets. The commercial interests of France are also threatened; even American wines are competing with ours. The connoisseur alone demands the wines of France. But what is still graver is th9 fact that the Americans are getting hold of the processes, the sleight of hand of our workmen. Already in the manufacturing .of jewelry,- watche% capable of being rapidly taken apart and re bronzes, furniture and artificial flowers they t i t : ' S S Bullions and other!

Tho gaudy Moresque pa-villion of Brazil, in tho Main Building, is to be taken down and shipped to Bio Jenero, where it will be re-erected aa a memorial of tbe centennial exhibition.
