mb. seward's wosoERri't parrot.
Among the many attractions of the hospitable
Washington residence of Mr. Seward, late S
retary of State, we bird-lovers class the parrots
and the beautiful parakeets. Of all these, the
most piquant, lively, and reliable entertainer w:u
a certain stately old parrot, in a handsome live
ry of green anil scarlet the Secretary's own par
ticular pet and gossip. -
This remarkable bird was, and, I trust, is though
in a new home, and under a new administration,
a right "merry old oul," appruaetiabK.. and con
descending, social, lispiacioi;.. and little liable to
the provoking moods and sulks, the eontrarious
and cantankerous always peculiar to his race.
His cage usually hung in the pleasant little li
brarv opening off the hall, where he watched the
incomings anrl outgoings of the household ; where
he saw tuO visitors who dropped in, informally ;
where he heard their iigl.t gossip, their hurritsi
im.-iin--.. uii., or ineir gruvc iiiuinc or- ;i , .-
nients on a Hairs of Mate. In political discus
sions whenever they grew at all stormy, he i-spiv
cially delighted, and seldom tailed to mingle
royally ruling on the storm, and loyally echoing
his distinguished master's seutiiucnls, or helping
to laugh his opponents down.
That laugh of his is the most startingly human
sound I ever heard from the throat of a bird.
It is frightful ftinnjr.j,
Some time last slimmer, while the window
near which the cage stood was kept .open, the
parrot was attracted by the vocal exerci ies of an
infant next door, one of those cherubic babes
that "continually do cry;" and at length he
startled the family by an imitation so dolorous
ly perfect that it was feared some psr little east
away had somehow been smuggled into the house.
At another time, his master Was afflicted with a
cough, and immediately his faithful "ancient"
had symptoms of bronchitis.
Certain voices were sure to excite his emula
tion or his antipathy. On one owasion, when
Senator Sumner wa.i discussing some political
question with the Secretary not by any means
taking pains to "roar him gcntlv," the parrot lie-
came fearfully excited, and I was told, actually j
screamed him down, with all sorts of unparlia- j
mentsrv liootings and cat-caiis. there mav

was reason to expect a general spoilutlon a

Such a system would, in twenty years liave
made France as ssr and barbarous as France
or the Carlovingians. Happily the danger was
averted ; and now there is a desiMitisiii, a silent

I heartily wish von good deliverance. But
my reason and wishes are at war, and I cannot
help forboding the worst. It is quite plain that

at its mercy. The day Will conic when

who hears his children cry for more bread ? I
seriously apprehend that vou will, in gome such

things which will prevent prosperity from re

which we employ is as follows :
Make a saturated solution of the chloride of

sustained inject this into any or all the wounds
made by the teeth of the animal ; let it be done
with a small syringe and with sufficient force to

ammonia, ten grains to the half pint of water,

The longest time which baa elapsed from the
time the person was bitten until the above means
were used were four hours, vet we are of the
opinion, that this would antidote the poison even
ten or fifteen hours after the injury for the rea

The Bcrsino or Bvbos's Memoirs. The
last number of Lippincott's magazine contains
an interesting article entitled, "A Lost "Chapter
of History," which treats of one of Byron's in
trigues. The paper give a remmie of the hi -i ..ry
of his nnhappy marriage, and an account of hut
liamm with Ladv Caroline Lamb, wife of Lord
.Melbourne, and his greater love for his natural
daughter Allcgre, who died at the age of 5 years,
over that of the legitimate daughter Ada. The
lost chapter of history refers to the memoirs of
Lord By rim, written by himself, the destruction
of whici Mr. Dodge characterizes as an "act of
literary barbarism unparalleled since the Alex
andrian library was committed to the flames."
Byron informed his wife of the existence of his
memoirs and offered to submit them to her for
for examination, but she1 refused to see them.
He then put them into Moore's hands and the
latter pawned theni to Murray, the publisher, for
the sum of 2(00. On Byron's death, Lady
Byron's banker communicated with Murray and
offered to pay the 2X10, with interest if Murray
would consent to give up the autobiography.
This the publisher refused to do, but ottered to
submit it to examination, and if it contained
matter unfit for publication, it should be destroy
ed by fire. After much discussion ond many
meetings Moore consented to its destruction, and
it was burned.
