Mrs. Dr. Mary J. Studley ranked third in a recent competitive examination for five positions on the house staff of the New York Charity Hospital. She will not have a place, however, on the ground that the medical board "deem it inexpedient to appoint a female to such a position." A Boston bride, whose groom remonstrated with her at the wedding for indulging in a rather indiscriminate bestowal of her maiden kisses on a number of her male friends, remarked with natural naivete that the gentlemen in question had been in the habit of kissing her all her life, and she didn't see why they should stop now.

Through the mercies of a kind Providence, we were all saved, and none of us were seriously injured, not even our pre cious children. We conclude, though, that Sunday is not the aay for dinners and boat excursions and that if we are able to go anywhere on that day, the proper place to so is to the house of the Lord, to learn of His goodness and feast upon His pleasing word.

A woman ought to study, in everything, the comfort of those who are passing their days shut out from the pleasant green fields and shady lanes, toiling Where the sunbeams cannot reach them, to cheer their sinking hearts, in order that she may live in comfort ; such a thought should guide the actions of every mother, wife, and sister. Cleanliness and a judicious expenditure of funds are most admirable qualifications in a wife, yet do not constitute entire happiness ; they are only parts of the ingredients employed in forming domestic happiness. Many women never think of conversing on . ahyrsubjecfcbeyo tho father, husband, or . brother, goes out in search of a friend with whom he can discuss more interesting matters, is a great" loss" to females not to be able, on all occasions, to converse on general subjects. -- Wc are happy to state that children of the working classes are now, i n many towns, amply provided wi th the means of securing an excellent eduqation, despite pecuniary deficiency ; an education that will fit f-I- t - them to hold, with credit, superior situations. They are taught to think and to reason upon all learned subjects as children, so that in the days of maturity they may enjoy and add to the enjoyment of an intelligent circle of friends." THE COItONADO ISLANDS. One of the first sights that attracts the stranger on his arrival here, and one that the old residents of San Diego never tiro looking at, is the group of islands known as the Coronados. In plain view from every portion of the city, with nothing beyond them but the waters of the immense Pacific, seems a pity, sometimes, to sea persons who are highly gifted with a noble portion of intelli gence, give way to evil passions, yield to the voice of temptation, and fall into vice. The query very often arises, How can they, knowing so well the difference between the proper and improper course, act as they do ? But the question is easily answered. They lack integrity; the' love of truth, the appreciation of justice and riiht Yet. br their eloquence, their ingenuity, the pleasing display of their superior intellectual abilities, they often win friends and obtain favors, where others, possessed ot genuine integrity and trustworthy principles, but less brilliant in ideas and consequent appearance, arc passed by unnoticed. Where both these elements richly abound and arc finely cultivated in one bcrncr. we find suncrinr- ity indcedr And that superiority all should, and all may, obtain, by carefully cultivating the fundamental parts of these two preeminent, principles. For, certain it is, the Lord in His infinite wisdom and mercy has ordered a seed of each to be planted in every little perfect human form, tliat all who desire it, may be both wise and good. L. they form an attractive and graceful contrast to the high hills south and east and the mesa land north of the town. They, are always beautiful, but are especially so when the atmosphere is intensely clear, as it was yesterday. The first day of May was, even for a San Diego day, unusually lovely. Its pleasant breezes made every one feel cheerful, and drew many into tho open air away from their occupations to sit and gaze with delight on the islands, which seemed, al though miles away, to bo within a hundred yards of the beach, and looked as if nothing intervened between them and the shore but a narrow strip or blue water. But a still more attractive phase under which the group ot islands can be seen, is when the atmosphere causes them to change their appearance, producing the most beautiful mir ages imaginable. On Tuesday an opportu nity was afforded- - to observe these atmospheric effects. The rapid changes in the appearance of tho Coronados as seen from the city on this day were wonderful ; and the shapes were as puzzling and the opinions of observers as conflicting as were those of Polonius, who saw a camel, weasel and whale in the same cloud. These curious mirages are not rare, but may be seen freAnother peculiarity connected quently. with these islands is that at times they are iioLvbdblc from the city, although with thc exception of a slight and almost undiscerni-- ble haze,f the day may be perfectly clear, with not a single cloud in the sky.
