There rcmy Imvo bocn in the past n

tirao when ti gpccnlntor couM ajiproximate

with Dome acciiraoy to

the exnct

fttuonnt of whent, corn, or pork which

C011UI bo thrown upon tlio mnrlcct, bnt

that tloes not exist now.

Tlio nreti of

cnUivatcd land is so mnch greater nnd

tliG crojifi so mnoh moto varied that no

fittoh estimate cnn now bo mnde.

Tlie

WDBtem pe.iplo have learned o lesson

from the experience of tho pnst, nnd

tliey now BO vary iho good crops ot their

fnims tlitt roost of ihcui aro no longer

nhsolutcl/dependent npon tho one firain,

corn, or wheat.

There is a point nf pricp

beyond which tho farmer liiiuks it good

economy to cat somo other food and sell

tliis or that article.

There is a point in

price beyond which the farmers knows

it is nfielcsB for him to hold bin product.

Then tho multiplication of railro.ida enables

the formera rapidly to concentrate

their salable articles at any one

point

where tho price may be hlRhest.

The

Rront whent corner of Ohicago was nn

instance of these facts. Never before

was n speculation gotten up with so little

foresight.

'I'he earth may be said to

bflvc groaned with the burden of grain

and fruits ihe was bringing forth, and

the very men engnged in tliis wild operation

are nraong those who boost that

more than one-fifth of tho railroads of

tho United Slates center nt Chlongo.

It

may trul.y bo said that from tlio four

qnnrtors of the earth the golden

griiiu

ciinio ixmring into Ihnt city ns the price

per bushel touched SI. 55 ; for wheat was

even shipped back

from BufTalo, and

tbe vast resourses of tho railroads became

wonderfully apparent.

It is stated

ns nn instance of thiR that one of these

great lines bronght to tho city in one

day 1,000 car-loads of grain.

It would

Deem that with such experience nnd such

resources plainly evident, the (^hiciigo

operators would be slow lo enter tho field

of speculation iu any agricnltiti-nl product,

hut we have from there the iHtelUgeuce

that they are now engaged in the

ellort to corner pork.

Tho prospective ROCCCFS of this new

corner is based upon the fact that Chicago

demands mess pork to be of a certain

Btandnrd ; that thero nro now only

nbout 124,000 barrels in tho cily, nud

that all iu Cincinnati is controlled by

three firms, and that these two stocks

are tho largo proportion of what is iu

this country. Tlio true standard for

judfiing the prospects of tho success cf

[jiuy corner is the certainty of n demand,

luthis light tho present Chicago corner

is cTcn more illy planned thon the one so

lately collapsed. The corn crop throughout

the whole couuti-y is very large, and

iu most seelions the wild most is excellent.

The patatD bug hns been, compared

with last year, almost Imrmlcfa to

that grciit food crop; tho production nf

molasses from various sources has increased

; the time 0/ tho year wlicu

work ceases is at hand, and the unmbcr

of hogs in the c»uutry 1ms increased over

2,000 in the last year. Tliere is no other

so cheap mode of trausportiug a bushel

of com to market HH when

condensed

into fat of a hog» sides, hcuco with

abundant corn it can readily be seen that

tho farmers of tho West will rapidly turti

their corn into hog flesh, and iu view of

cheap corn nnd high priced pork will

siiaro from their fuiiu stock u few more

thun originally intended for fliis purpose.

This will make a plethora of pork supply

; but it may be enntended that it

will nut be put up at Ohicago standard,

ur rather that tho rules of tho clique

will couteud that it is not of jirimo quality.

On this i»oiut, firstly, St. Lonis will

buy it ChicaRO does not, aud thence tho

American market will bo supplied.

Again, Imyrrs may choose to rastko a

standard of their owu aud not take as a

fiuality the dictum of tlio Chicago clique.

In airy event we can t^('o for this new

combination no better fate than (hut met

ly tho attempted monoplizeia of wheat,

luid jiossibly in its culmiuAlion an injury

lo tbe commercial interests of Chicago

and the trausfermeut of t-omo of her

trade to her rival on tho Mistiissipi)!.—

that no such feelings a^ Mr.

Grceloy describes existed.

Gen. Bumside

the kindly and true hearted gentleman

and soldier who pret^idcd, maid in

Ids opening address :

" I am quite sure wo do not make ourselves

misunderstood to day by cxproasing

any ill feelings toward Jour late on*

9miesin tho field, because we have no

such itl feclinfjs, nnd wo know tbut the

hatchet is buried. * * • gut for

rulprs, comradcF, lot ns fiolect men who,

in tho hour of their country's peril, wero

true.

Let us, of all things, refuse our

support to men who believe there was

right iu secrsRiou."

So thoroughly was this spirit understood,

that the Convention was addressed

by n Inrgo number of ex-Con federates,

from Now Orleona, inalctler expressing

cordial sympathy with its purposes.

In completo hnrmonv with the utterances

of Ofu. Bnrosido were those of

other aponkerfi, wlnla the formni deliberate

resolulionn enthus'fl8''iqil1y itdo])ted

by the Uonveution wero still more emplialic.

The fourth which was greeted

at every chuiso with loud and long npplanse,

read thns:

"4. Wo cherish no spirit of i-evengo

toward our felloir citizens of tho South.

Themngnnnimityof our late Commander

in Chief on the field of Appomattox was

n sullieieut pledge of the Union Army

that the ' bloody chasm' of Iho war was

dosed, and with maliCo toward none,

but with charity to ill, wo- extend tho

right hand of fellowship to nil those who

accept in good faith the reanlts of the

war, and who will exteud to every American

citizen, of whatever race or color,

tho rights which are solemnly guaranteed

by the Conslituliou of the TToitrd

SLut*fB and tho lawn made in imvauunco

thereof.

It was in tho face of this overwhchuing

evidence that Mr. Greeley inado his

false declarations.

Why did he make

them? Why did ho single out for abuse

the veterans who had gathered from tho

avocations of peace to pledge to each

other their fidelity to what they believed,

to be tho causa they fought for in tho

field 'i Wliy, of ail the seven millions

of voters iu our country, slitmld these be

set ujfon by Mr. Greeley with baseless iu

^iunations and charges notoriously nn*

ti1|o ? Has ho so soon forgotten the

pride and sympathy with which wo

watched our regiments marching to the

front tlinuigh streets crowded with their

admiring countryuieu ? Has ho still

sooner ceased to feel lingering thrills of

that joy and thuukfnineas with which we

welcomed them us they marched back

again, with thinned ranks under their

torn flags ?

Certainly the nation has

not forgotten them, and the

soldicrx

know and ttekuowlcdge that it has not.

Why should a Presidential

candidate,

pleading for votes, heap upon tho veternus

ini-nltiug phrases without a color

of truth to justify them 'i

Tho secret is uu opiMi one. Mr. Greoley

desired to "conciliate" the unrepentant

porliou of the seccssiimi&ta of the

South.

He is their eaiulidiite, and he is

not above serving them in any way he

deems most acccptidde.

Every stage iu

his Kcll imi>oscd pilgrimage has been

marked by somo effort to win the approval

of this class.

At Pittsburg, in

the same speeeh iu which hecalumuiuted

tho Northern soldiers, he reiterated his

liructiciil acee]>NliR-e of tlie doctrine of

Bpcesaicm in IBOl. uud professed that under

similur circumstances, ho would jirefcr

to "take the chancei'* of a vote of

tho States on secession lo au attempt to

preserve tho U,uion (us it was preserved)

liy force.

At Hurrihburg ho »lfclared

that his purpose "above ull thing'i" in

becoming a caudiduto was to secure the

removal of the disabilities which keep

Jefferson Daris and Robert Toombs out

of tho Uuited States Senate.

At Warren,

Penu., he avowed that his motive

in bailiuf; the arch traitor wus to open a

Wliy to the Southern heart.

At Corry,

Peuu.j ho preneuted the Ku Klux out^

rages in-u mild form, and pleaded that

there were " excuses und provocations"

for [hem.

In the same address he denounced

unqualifiedly the State Governments

of tho Stiou, nud classing ull together

ill tho rebel slung as " carpet buggers.*'

At JeO'ersouville, Ind , ho even

uckuowledged thut his ox>i)(tsition tu

slavery " might b.ive beeu a mi.s!ake."

Wu cannot err in beUeving that iu

thus electing tu uddress these humiliating

pleas to those of the Suutheruers

who were original and ju-e still uorepent^

uut se:;ebtiiuuists, Mr. Greeley has despaired

of supi>urt Iram the luyal purtiuu

of tho North, aud ebpeciully from the

noble body of citizeus who served iu the

Union Army. Ho must know that

gratuituus iusults tu our veterans will be

resented, uut by them only, but ''V the

greut muss uf the pi-oplo of the North,

aud when he co3clud(^d tu ulTcr those iusultfl,

bo must have ubundoucd ull bojic

of loyul suxjport.

Having thus mode

his bed, he must be cunteut to Ue in it.

—Kt ut Vork

Thme.

be Be inforced ns 4o cru^h out the villainies

at which it is aimed."

Mr. Greeley tried, In his recent speechcf*,

to keep np a greater show of consistency

with feferenee to tho doctrine of secession,

tte doolnrcd (Xov. 9, 18(10), that if

''the Cotton States shflll decide that they

can do better out of tho Union than in' it,

we InMst on letfinfj them fja in

peace:''

and so ngflin he said, "If ever seven or

eight Slates send agents to Washington

to say, 'We want to go nut of the Union,'

wo shall feel constrained by onr devotion

to human liberty to Fay 'I^et them go.' "

There is no heating about tho hnoh in

these expresMons.

The fln«t of tho above

pnflSflgea Mr. Gredoy deliberately reprinted

!• Ids "History of tho American

Conflict." Mr. Greeloy goes ns far to

vindicate the right of BecoPsIon as Jeff

Davis could do.

At Pittehurg, during his

recent

tour, ho practlcallv re-ofllrmed

these viewfi.

Ue snid: "And now, today.

If tho nation where to be imjicriled,

and there wcre.bi8t two modes of saving

it, to tnist to the chaneea of civil war, or

to tho chances of a free Vote for the

Southern people, I would

very greatly

prefer tit take the latter chnnco rather

than the former."

This is hut an echo of

tho endless talk wo heard on the Southern

(piostion before the war.

Suppose in the

case Mr. Greeley Imagines, the vote was

for seceaslon ?

What course would Mr.

Greeley take then ?

It is, however, when Mr. Grceloy caine

io tho shaking-hands and cliflsm business

that his ditty became most wild nnd heartrending.

Ho could not bear to see an exsoldier

anywhere on his route. The

.Soldiers' convention at Pittsburg he denounced

as having been brought together

"for tho single purpo e of rekindling the

bitterness and Iintred, the animosities and

antipathies, the fears aud exuitntlons ot

civil war"—a studied insult to tho soldiers

who met in that Convention, nnd who, ns

we have before insisted, have as much

right to meet together to exchange their

opinions as any other body of men in the

country.

Wherever Mr. Greeley wont

his heart was wrung by reflections on the

cruelty, the implncabllity, the revengeful

passions of the North.

As for the Ku-

Khix outrages nt the South, he could see

"excHses and provocations for them"—a

startling admisBion for a man in ^Ir.

Greeley's position to make.

Probably lie

has adopted tho views of some of his

newspaper supporters, that the negro

gives great ''provocntlon" to the while

man by persisting in living at nil, and affords

a perpetual "eieuflo" for outrages in

daring lo have an opinion of Ids own.

It was by one of these {onninls (now confidently

predicting n Greeley victory in

Pennsylvania) that Mr. Frederick Douglass

was recently dubbed a *'cidlud pnsson,"

and rebuked for his impertinence

m

presnininpr in nddi-poo an nitdlunCO of

free meu.

Certain it is that Mr. Greeley

franlily admits the possibility of his having

been nltogethcr wrong iu attacking

slavery.

IIo said at JclTcrrionville, Ind.,

(Sept. 2'i :> "I was, in the days of slavery,

an enemy of slavery, because I thought

slavery InconsUtent with tbo rights, tho

dignity, the highe.it well-being uf free

Isbor.

That might hate been a mistale !'*

This was about tho lost heresy advocaled

by Mr. Greeley iu former years which ho

had not recanted, nnd he left Indiana

without a thread of his former political

garments hanging to him.

He started

out afresh into this wiekcd world, like a

sheep just shorn, to continue his melancholy

bieutings on the subject of peace

and roconciliatiou.

A Wostcru luchlrut.

A target shoot was a grnnd thing among

tho rough i>i6neers ; there wero some

visitors from beyond tho mnur.laiu.'!, nud

e.ich rifleman was particularly anxious to

di.splay his ouo necomplishiueut before

tho strangers.

Mike Fiuk was among

fhem—the very prince ot marksmen.

But on thia occa&ian he was nuusitalty

quite and reticent.

After exhibiting their skill by "cutting

the center,"

to tho snlisfuctiou of

the viKilors, it cnnio (o Fink's turn to

perform the grand final feat of the occasion.

This consisted in setting n Un cnp on

the head of ouo of the party, and placing

him at the distance of fifty paces, shooting

the cup off tbo hca.l of the person

supporting it.

Mike ns usual selected

Joe Stevens us cnp bearer.

All knew

hl« skill, and no one would have hesitated

to have performod the service. Tiiey

did uut know, however, that but a short

lime before thia Mike had fallen

out

with Joe, and hud patiently waited tho

lime for his revenge.

Joe accepted the

honor with alacrlly.capecially gratified at

Mike's commendalcry remarks„ns lie requested

him to perfoim the Bcr"^c.

Pink expressed himself confident

that

ho could " plug the foremost nide of tho

cui>, providi'd Joo would hold it up, for

he alius liild klndo' stidy like."

The distance was measured—the cupbearer

tuok his stJitiou; the shining helmet

was placed upon his head.

Mike

took Ilia ** peg," pricked bin flint, primed

his firelock, poised his rifle, took uim

end fired. The ball cruahedthntUEli the

brain of his foimcr friend uud comrade,

aud .Too St«iveus fell prone to the earth

and expired without u groan.

Mike's

vengcuuce w-as satiated.

But .Too had u

brother there that day.

He, us We'll us the other persons present,

knew that "Mike Pink had played

foul."

Sfarcely lia^ the the light smoke

wreath from Mike's fatal rifle vanished

iuto thin air, when Dick titeveus, the

brother uf the murdered Joe, brought

his unerring rifie to bear upon th« murderer,

and iu an iiiBtantaball was craUiiug

thruugh the skull of Mike Fink, and

he fell dead in his place at the peg from

whence he had sent the messenger uf

death to a Icllow being ouly a few

seconds before.

A deep nnd wide pit was dug, and into

it tho rude backswuodsmeu lowered the

lifeless fiu'ins of murdered and murderer

aud there—through long ages forgotteu

—the two silently moulder to dust.

The same result is obtained if you

raise tho numbers so changed to their

squares or cubes. Starting with 02, begin

tho sum over again. By reversing

the digits we get 20, which, subti'acted

from 62, leaves 30, or 3 plusfl =9. Tho

squares of 26 and 62 are, rcsi)ectively,

670 and 3644, Subtract one from tho

other aud you get 31G8 ~: 18, and 1 plus

8 i: 9. So with the cubes of 20 aud 62,

wliieh are 17576 aud 238328. Subtracted,

they leave 220762 ~ 18, and 1 plus

8-9.

Tho powerfully bo-n/«c influeuce of

this figure is exemi>lifiud in another

Write down any number, as, for

example, 7549132, subtract therefrom

of the product will always come to 9.

liiVUll :; auu of dlgita 37, Mtd 9 pint 7-9.

A very good puzzle has been based

on this ]]rincij>le as follows : Get another

person to write down a horizontal

row of figures, as many us he likes,

without letting you see what he is about

from beginning to end of tho whole performance.

He is then to reckon up the

sum of the digits, and subtract that

from Lis row of figures. When he has

done this, bid Lim cross out any figure

Le pleases from the product, and tell

you how much the figures add uii, without

tLe crossed-out figure. From the

numbers so gi%'eu you will bo able to

tell what figiye he bos crossed out, by

only bearing in mind the fact learned

above—namely, that if no figure at all

had been crossed out, tho result would

necessarily be 9 or a multiple of 9.

Hence you will see that the crossed-out

figure must needs be tJiC one rcfjuircd

to bi-iny tlic vuni to tlic next tnuUipte

of 9. Supjjusiug, for instance, he gives

Lis result at 37, you may be sure he has

robbed the product of 8, that being the

figure needed to restore the total to the

next multiple of 9—namely, 45. His

sum would stand us under:

iiiMntiain z KUUI of di«iu u.

AtiM)T(U5Zit7.

There is only one cose in which you

oan be ut fault, uud tliut is iu the event

of a multiple of 9 being returned to you

OS o product Of coujrse, then, you will

know that vHJier u 9 or a 0 must have

been struck out iu the above instunoe,

tho result would Lave been 36; hod it

been the U, the product would Lave

been i5. Both btting multiples of 9, it

would be impossible to tell with oertuiuty

whether the luissiog figure were

9 or 0; but u good guess muy generally

be formed, beoanae, if the figures sppeur

suspiciously low iu proportion to

the time taken to xoftke up the SOID, yoo

may upeculato that yoni- product has

most likely sustftined tbe loss of the

bighoT Eumber.

There is a clover Persian story about

Jlohamrocd All and tho camels, and

though it will be familiar to many of

my readers, they will scarcely bo sorry

to bo reminded of it. A Persian died,

leaving seventeen camels to bo divided

among threo sons in the following proportions:

tho eldest to have half, tho second

a third, and the youngest n ninth.

Of course, camels can't bo divided into

fractions, so, in dispair, the brothers

submitted the difficulty to Mohammed

Ali.

"Nothing oasier," said the wise

Ali; "I'll send yon another cnwl to

make eighteen, and now divide them

yonrselros." Tho consequence was,

each brother got from on o eighth to

onodmlf of ft camel more than he was

entitled to, and Ali i-oeeived ?dti camel

back again ; the eldest son getting nine

camels, the second six, and tho third

two.

Johann August Musnius, one of the

most popular Gorman Btory-writcra of

the last century, in his story of *'Libnssn,"

makes tho Lady of Bohemia put

forth tho following problem to lier

throe lovers, offering her hand aud

throne as a prize for a correct solution.

"I Lave hero in my basket," said the

Lady Libnssa, "ft gift of iilums for

each of yoti, picked from my garden.

One of you sliall have half and one

tooro, and tho second sliall again havo

half And one more, and tlie third shall

again Lave halt aud three more. This

will empty my basket Now tell mo

how many plums are in it?"

Tlio first Knight made a random

guess at three-score.

"No,"' replied the lady.

"But if

there were as many more, half ns many

more, and a third as many moro as

there are now in the basket, with gvo

moro added to that, tho number would

by so much exceed threescore ns it now

falls short of it.

Tho second knight getting awfully

bewildered, speculated wildly ou fortyfive.

" Not so," said the royal ready reckoner.

"But if there were ft third ns

many moro, half as many more, and a

sixth as many moro as there aro now,

there would be in my basket as many

moro than forty-five as there now aro

under that number."

Prince Wladomir then decided the

number of plnma to bo thirty; and by

so doing fibtalned this invaluable honsokceper

for Lis wife. Tlio Lady Libnssa

thereupon oountod out fifteen plums

and one more, when there remained

fourteen. To tho second knight, she

gave seven and one more, and six remained.

Tu tho first knight, she gave

half of those and ftud threo moro; nud

tho basket was empty. Iho discarded

lovers went oflT with their heads exceedingly

giddy, and their mouths fuU of

plums.

Double Position, or tho rule of false,

by which problems of this sort aro

worked, ought to demolish the eommonptooo

nbout two wroiiga not lonking a

right.

Two wrongs do make a right,

//firurcatively speaking, at all events.

Starting with two wilfully false numbers,

you work each out to its natural

conclusion.

Then, taking tho sum of

your iniquilios as compared with the

falsehoods with whioli you started, you

havo only to multiply them crosswise

to get turns whiclk. will bring you

straight to tho tmth.

To bo moro precise,

after tho cross-multiplication, if

the errors aro alike—that is, both grater

or both less than tho number you

want—take their diflTereuco for a divisor,

and tho dilTercnco of their products

for a dividend. If unlike, take their

sum for u divisor, aud the sum of their

products for a dividend. Tho quotiou

will bo the answer. This is good arithmetic,

aud, for those who can receive

it, not bad philosophy. There is an

enormous self-rigLting power about error,

and if wo oonld only manage tho

oross-multii>lication properly, we might

get some surprising results.

The number 37 has thid strange peculiarity

: multiplied by 3 or auy multiple

of 3 up to 27, it gives tliree figures

all alike. Thus threo times 37 will bo

111. Twice threo times (.6 times) 37

gives three tLrees; four times threo

times (12 timey) 37 threo fours; and so

on.

OAHBAOKS.—Tills Is one of the qtilekcst

dcRiiying vegetable^ if kept in A warm

plnne; nnd llio nsnnl prnotiee in this vlciiiiiy

is to set tho heads in a fnrrow,

with the roots np, and then coror very

Hulitly with pflrtli. In e«oh n position

they remain frozen nearly all winter, and

como ont in f^prlng almost as fresh as

when gntherod in antnmn.

To PnivE A WAT BED-Buns.—An oxchnnpo

gives Iho following na a snre way

in drive nway bed-lraes from old beds :

" Tnko green tomato vines, pnt tbcm in

ft l>.i«;in or Irny, ponnd Ihcm to pioceaas

flue nR poRsiblc, then atnin the bedstond

which they inhabit with the juice, fill

Iho crevices with pieces of vines, and

lay leaves under .the ends of the slntfl.

IMhiB is practiced twice a year not a bng

will remain in tbo bedstead."

Oxioxs.—Onions will

withstand f»r

more cold than is nsually supposed. If

pncl:ed dry in tight barrels, and all interstieos

filled with chaff, they may he kept

in a harn, or where they will freeze qnito

hard, and not he injnred, provided the

barrels are closed tight nnd not opened

until tlio onions are again thawed. Onions

stored in n w^arm cellar are very likely to

spront in winter, and then decay, emitting

aiiythini; but an agieeaWe odor.

CRACKEH PIES.—Roll six crackers flno

nnd put tlicm in n four-quart pail or

keltic, pour over them threc-foniths of a

pint of vinegar, two cnps of molasses,

nnd a quart of boiling water,

adding

more water, if noceKsiuj, to make quite

thin.

Add salt, raisins aid all kinds of

spices, nnd mnke short crusts for four

iiirs.

Bnko twenty nilnntes, or until

tlio rrnst is done. A little sn;jnr may bo

aildoil before tho top crust is put on.

BUTTER.—Butter is sometimes

effeclnnlly preserved from tbo

Suiuiut'r to tho Winter time by mixing

it with snlt nnd by Merely enclosing

it ill canvass wmppers and putting these

j " Jars containing a quantity of brine.

Tiio biino dues not enter into tho substanco

of tho butter or render it in any

w.'iy disagreoablo. In the preparation

of brino lor butter we find it best to Iicat

tlio brine senlding hot, skimming it nnd

tliin idlnwing it to eool and settle, pourinr;

off the clear, cold brine, which is

then tit for use.

Tni: BiuiN OP A Homn.—We find

till' following in the S^iiftilijlc

Anifriran;

Tho briin of a horee- seems to entertain

but one thought at a time ; for thiw rcnfiiiU

continued Tvhipping is out of tho

tjneitinn, and only confirms his stubborn

n Holve. But if liy any means you can

change the direetiou of his mind, giving

bim II now sulijoct to think of, nine

times ont of ten you will have no further

trouble in starting him. As simple a

trick as a little pepper, aloes, or tliolike,

tlii'own back «m his tongue, will often

flueeeed in turning attention to the state

of his mouth.

lloo KILIJINO.—Weliavo given several

old hoi'Res their quietus witli A gnn, and

HO ^uddcnly nnd complettOy were all the

j)on'oi-s paralyzed that there was not the

slightest evidence that nny pain was expeiieiiced.

They fell slowly foped hero to honornblo employment.

Wo are clamoring for iramipfrnnts

all the 'time wlien every California boy

well trained would be worth AH A mAu,

as much ns four Average immigrants.

Not long Ago tho pnlpit to some extent

in this city, took np the subject of

"hoodlums," but mifised tho most vit4il

point.

Boys need sometimes Altrnctive

piacea of resort.

But forced idleness is

lo-day the source of tlie creater part of

jnveiiilo vagmney and ciirao. What

hope is there for a boy brimming over

with activity who can find no honorable

work to do? There never WAR a more

blind nnd brutal cmsado waged against

boys than that inspired by some of the

labor leagues nnd unions of the country.

If you want hoodhims nnd vagrants, limit

the admission of boys to one or two hero

and there, among master mechanics and

mannfneluring

cstAblishment^ nnd Sftt

the rest adrift

«If these boys nre to be saved, this omsade

Against them mnst be stopped. ^Tho

incorrigible hoodlums may bring up in

tho penitentiary. But tho hostility

which makes boys drift in that direction

is n thing not only to bo bo deplored.

but to be abolishod if possible.

There

is not A single mooIiAnicAl or other industrial

employment in CalifoniiA where

any other limit shoukl bo prtscribod for

tho employment of boys than tho ability

of the employer to find work for them.

Any other is cniol, cowardly and criminal.

"Wo cannot kill off the present generation

of boys, make hoodlums of them

nor banish

them from tho country.

There is no place in tho world where

they ought to be worth ns much ns hero.

Tbo employer who turns a boy away

with tbo i-xcnso that he is limited lo the

employment of two or three, nnd cannot

employ any more by tbo rule of some

lengiic or organization, has enlisted in

A war against the boys of this State.

Tlicro IS not an employer who cannot

say: "I am master of the situation. I

will give as many boys places in my establishment

ns I can mnlie room for, in

dependent of all dietntion." It may

cost somcthingto take this stand, bnt it

is on solid ground. There arc a thousand

boys in this city with nothing to do who

ought not to be drowned to get tbem

out of tho way, ought not to be banished

from the State, and ought not to be

turned into hoodlums.—Sau Francioco

La PaMa, of Florence, gives a loig

and intc-TGsting acconnt of nn encfonntcr

between an Amerienn traveller nnd two

robbers in nn infamous resort known ns

the Leone d'Ovo, whitlu-r the Ameriean

was lured by an nceidental ncquAintance

formed in a r.iilrond coAch while mnning

from AncouA to Foggia. Tlie AmericAn,

whose nnmo is Stnyvennnt, found tbe

Ijconr d^Oro to bo peopled by rough-looking

persons who impressed him with

grave snapicions.

After retiring Ito was

Aroused by a noise nt tbo folding doors

which seiinrntod his sleeping from bis

sitting Apnrtment, Mr. StnyvosAut arose

adjusted his pantaloons and inspected

his revolver and and a pAir of brass

knuckles. Nearly an hour elapsed without

further noise, when the sonnd of

footsteps, in the adjoining apartment

attracted his attention,

rretending to

sleep soundly, Mr. Stuyresant heard the

folding doors grndnally drawn

apart,

nnd then the whispering cf men's voices

iMjsido his bed.

One said, *' don't fear,

he is Asleep," whereupon the gm was

lighted. Two robbew of huge build and

fici-co expression met Mr. Stuyvesant's

f fnzo. They examined his valise, and,

laving searched his coat pooketi, were

about to take a package of papers with

tbcm, when the lieroic foreigner bounded

from his bed nnd demanded an explanation.

A dagger wns Instantly aimed

nt him ; but tho Amcrioan disposed of

bis nssnilnnt by a shot which penetrated

tbe Intter's shoulder blado. Tho other

robber brandished his stiletto furiously

and aimed a terrible blow at the stranger's

heart, which bo pared with his

right arm, receiving a simple

flesli

wound. A blow from the brass knuckles

and another brought the villain to the

floor.

After a number of roughs had

gathered around Mr. Stuyvesant's door,

the Iatt«r insisted on no one entering

except tho master of tho hotel. The

American, having locked his door, presented

bis pistols nt tho landlord, onlcring

him to keep quiet while ho unlocked

I window. From the window he jumped

upon a little wooden

building and

escaped tothcstreet, whescohehaslencroud of

tlioir appoarancQ a moment boforo and

taking so much pains to do well, wore

now careless, reckteu and chargined.

The oompan.y commanders brought

order out of coufntion, and tho^^Omont

moved ngnin in order, but the men

never forgave *lie Major f»r tho mistake.

Ever after they called him *' Old Present

Arms," and shouted it nt him whenever

opportunity occurred. If lie rode

through cnmp, men would run inside

their tents nnd shout, " Present nrma I"

On a night mnreh, if he passed to the

head of a column, hundreds of men

would fihont, "Present Arms!" Ho

came out of the service with little more

knowledge of tnctics and maneuTers than

ho bad when he entered, and with the

improssion that "common sense" did

not mnke the soldier.

AnouT FnoGR.—Tho editor of " Harpers's

Hciontiflo Becord" gives some

credence to a singular fitntemont from

New Zealand. It is said that

surfaeo

water is entirely gone from large trncis,

sometimes covering five thousand square

milcE, ft»r months.

The region becomes

so utterly dry as to forbid the possibility,

apparently, ol any survival of frog life.

And yet these reptiles seem to boat tho

cat for tenacity of life, for whenever

rains falls sufficiently to fill tho water

holes, they aro found to swarm witti

frogs, and this vhen immediately previous

one might dig for ten or twenty

feet without finding any trace of water.

A recent writer offei-s a solution. His

statement is that on a reeent tour be

became alarmed for want of water ; that

a native called for help, went immediately

to a dry wiitiH'hoIe, found acrooked

and indistinct track on what had

onco been land, uad followed it up to

the shado of a mimll bush.

Hero he

commenced digging, nud soon found a

ball of clay about eight inches in diameter,

and quite dry on the outside, but,

when broken, it was found to contain

about half a ]iint of clear, cold water, iu

which a frog was Iiiding bis time, awaiting

the riiiuy season. A number of

similar bidls were exhumed, and tbo

travellnrs made free with both the water

and the frogs.

This is a man'ellous

story, and one may well woit for verification

; and yet such a disi)kiy of protective

instinct is not more marvellous

than many which aro certainly known.

SDi'QtJLAit MONOMANIA.— An extraordinary

case of monomania is related in a

French exchange, A well-dressed, educated

gentleman recently appeared before

a magistrate and gave the following

account ol himself : " My name is L—.

lama teacher in a college of tho department

of Gel's, and have como to pass

tho vacation iu my native town. I came

to ask you to be good enough to put mo

iu somo asylum until I can overcome a

dangerous mononLinia which jiosscsses

me.

I am not mad, but nm simply

faoized with an irresistibledesiro to strangle

a child.

During the long nights, as

1 lay Bloeplesslir in the dormitory of our

college, listening to tho breathing of

t1i(t Bcholaia confined to my care. I have

felt the most extraordinary Bcnsatioo's.

Often havo 1 got up and gono towards

tho bed of one of the boys with the lull

intcution of strangling bim to death,

but at the moment that I was about to

euize him by tho nock I havo succeeded,

by appealing to my rou&ou and all the

resources of iny nature, in avoiding the

committal of crime. I happily managed

to ward ofl the dreadful impulse until

vacation came.

But to-day I feci that I

can no longer resist.

Even in coming

.hero to you I larefiilly avoided meeting

; any child, lor, bad I done so, I must

have killed it." At this luoincntnboy

of fourteen 3'cara happened to ho brought

heforo the majiistrato to answer some

charge against him.

At tbo sight uFtho

boy a mud glare seemed to dart from

the eyes oi tho monomaniac, and bo

rushed forward to seize him, and was

only prevented by tbo ofllcera of thelaw.

The magistrato immediately

sent tbo

unfortunate man to tho lunatic asylum.

AN EoYiTiAN FESTIVAL. — A Cairo

letter in the Pall Mull Gazette

furnishes

an interesting description of tho cutting

of tho Nile, near Cairo, whieh^ takes

place every year, 'and ia an occision of

grout rejoicing and festivity among all

CIRBSCB. Tho bank of tile canal is cut

just after daybreak and the watere

allowed to cover tbo parched

land.

Long before sunset of the day before

tho Nilo is filled with gaily decorated

boats, upon which bauds aro playing,

and iu feasting and merriment the whol«

night is passed, tlie darkness illuminated

by a continual disjilay of

fireworks,

whi'jh even the dawn does not end.

Just at aunriee tho diggers begin theii

work, loosening up tlio f^oil with theii

implements, which arc n compromiBc

between 4 hoc and a carpenter's adz,

then loading it into baskets mado of

pulm leaves. It iscai'ried away by boys

and girls, and thrown into a heap

beyond the ebanuel. In three or four

bonis tbe baud is down and the wut^u*

rusliiug over.

Then comes tho wildest

sc(^-ne of the occasion, tho workers ding

luide their clothing and Bjiriug into the

w-if*r, fitrugjiliug for the *' backsheesh"

which is thiowuHo them by tho (lovcruor

of Ciiiro.

All day the Arabs wabb

in tbe rushing water, rejoicing thut it

Uows su freely and x>romises a rich bur

vest.

OcctJPATioH oFAFnEUCH BELLB.—The

amount of toil n young nnd pretty girl

at Trouville undergoes each day issomctliing

astonishing.

Very Hkely 8h« is

up at G o'clock in tho morning, and with

her bathing dross on, bare footed, she is

running over the sandi, joining a few

scores of girls and young gentlemen in

digging for equillos in tbe sand.

That

done she bathes for half an hour.

Then

she goes to her dtjnmr, a kind of morning

dinner.

Next she walks out on the

sands ; then she drives out over tbe

country ; then sho dresses fot dinner ;

then she passes an hour at dinner ; next

she promenades tho sand

again ; then

sho puts on evening dross nnd goes to

tbe *«/oo», where sho dnnces xierpetually

until midnight if it bo a ball evening.

Tho ball evenings aro' Thursdays nnd

Sundays.

Sunday is the great cveni..g

for dancing; on that day the young

girl will probably dance until aft«r 1

o'clock,—Fmich

htttr.

A DrFFERKNcn.—A correspondent of

the Ji'tihler states that ho bad occasion

to examine rooms occupied by young

ladies for manufacturing purposes, and

ho has observed that while the workers

iu ono room w*auld bo verj cheerful nnd

hcnitby, tlie occupants of a similar room

who were employed on tbo same kind of

business, were all inclined to be melancholy,

and complained of a certain pain

in the forehead and ejcs, and were often

ill and unable to work.

Tho only diflerenco

ho could discover in the rooms was

that tho one occupied by tho healthy

workers was wholly whitewashed, nnd

that occupied by the melancholy workers

was colored with yellow ocbro. As

soon as tbo difference struck him ho had

tho yellow oehro washed off tho walls

and then whitened. At onco an improvement

too place in tho health nnd

bpirits of tho occupants.

SiBBKUN Doo«.~The(id dogiarei^td

lo resemble the wolf—to

have'long,

pointed, projecting noses, shnrp and upright

cars, and long, bushy Inils ; color

various—black, brown, reddish brown,

white and spotted.

Tboy vary also in

size-; but a good sledge dog should not

be less than two feet seven inches high.

IHioir howling is that of a wolf. In the

mcr they dig holes in the ground for

ess, or lie in tho water to escape

^ iosqnitoes. which in those regions,

aro ^ot less troublesome than ono of

Phnrnoh's plagues. In winter they Irarrow

in the snow, and lio curled np,

with their noses covered by their bushy

tails.

The preparation of the-se animals

fot a journey, is carefully to be attended

to.

For a Innnight nt least., they should

bo put on a small allowance of bard food

to convert their suporflous fat into firm,

flesh.

They are also to be driven from

ten to twenty mills ^Inily; after which.

Von Wrangel says, they havo been

known to travel a hundred miles a day,

without being injured by it

"We

drove ours," he Bny% '* sometimes nt tho

rato of ono liundrfetl worsts (sixty-six

miles) a dny.

Their usual food is fresh

fish, thawed, and cut in pieces ; and ten

frozen herrings are said to bo n proiwr

nllownnco for each dog. A tonm consistfl

commonly of twelve dogs, nnd it is

of importance that they should bo nceustomed

to draw together.

Tho foremost

sledgo has usually an additional

dog, which baa been trained as a leader.

On the sagacity and docility of this lender,

depend the quick and steady going

of tho team, as well AS tho safety of the

ravcller."

luuRNSB WHEAT FARWS.—Thero are

three wheat farms in tho San Joaquin

Valley, CaliforniA, with Areas respectively

of 30,0f)0 acres, 23,000 and 17,000

acres.

On the largest of these farms ths

wbont crop this year is reputed to bo

equal to an average of 40 bushels to tho

acre, the yield nmningnp on some parts

of the farm to GO bushols. The prodnct

of this tarmforthe present yanris 1,440,

OtK) Imsbels. Tbe boundary on ono side

of tho farm is 17 miles long. At the

season of plowing, ten four-borso teams

wore nttnclied to ten gang-plows, each

gang having four plows—or forty horses

with as many plows were started at the

same time, the teams following in close

successiou. Lunch or dinner was sen'cd

nt n midway station, nnd supper nt the

terminus of tbe field, seventeen miles

distant from tho stariing point The

teams rotur»ed on the following dav,

Tho wheat in this field was cut with

twenty of tho largest reapers, nnd wo

believe bns now all been thrashed and.

tmt in sneka. It would require over

foarty ships of medium size to transport

tho wheat lutsed on this farm to a foreign

market. Even tho sacks required

would make a large hole in tho surplus

money of most farmers. Wo have not

tho figures touching the product of the

oUier two farms ; but presume that the

avcrago is not much below that of the

There aro thousands of tons of

At no former tim« in the history of

the country bns there been so deep, so

widaspread, and so intelligent nn interest

folt in tho matter of mrgralion and

Western settlement ns now. The rapid

eonstniction of railways which penetrate

tho fertile but hitherto unoccupied areas

of our New Northwcstcren Stntoi nnd

Territories, thus rendering aceossible

nnd valuable millions of acres of land

which would otherwise havo lain waste

for scores of years, baa given a wonderful

impetus to the WostwardJ tide of

population.

A largo porti'n of both forwign nnd

American migratitfri will henceforth

naturally and inevitably flow into that

new Northwest, now for the first mado

accessible by tho building of tho Northem

Pacific Bsilrcftd,

Tho belt of conntry

traversed 'by tho route of tho

thoroughfare - { Wisconsin,

Minnesota,

Dakota, Moutaim, Idaho, Washington,

And Oregon) has such clurncteristicR of

soil and climate as to rcn^r its speedy

settlement and prosperous cultivation

ceriain.

Tho Northern Pnclfie Company is

now selling itfl lands in Minnesota, nnd

tho fncilities nnd helps which it furnishes

to settlers nnd colonies greatly reduce

whore they do not wholly reinovo the

" hardslnps" of pioneer life. For example

tranpportation nt reduced rates

furuifihod from nanrly all parts of this

country to tho line of the a, P. Road,

and if a settler buys forty acres or more

of railroad land be and his whole family

arff carried /ree over the N. P. Road

whero going to settle.

Then at three

different points, on tho road large and

elegant reception houses have been built

and fitted np with

ctnvomenees for

single persons, families and colonics.

Settlers, no matter whetbar they locate

on free Oovcnnnent bbmestoads or

purchase railroad lands, enter t'jese

reception houses on leaving tho :;ar3 and

use them free of charge, as n tcmporaiy

home wliilo engnged in selecting land

nnd building dwelling of their own.

Tho company has fixed low prices on

its lands, gives seven years credit to

purolinsers, and receives in imyment at

ten per cent,

premium its own first

mortgage bonds which aro now selling at

par, and which are a favorite investment

throughout the country,

Thero are now few localities In the

West where good Govcrimcnt lands for

free hoinestdad entry can be found near

to railroads and markets.

The Northern

Pacific Road has been so recently built

through Minnesota, ttint thero are, close

to its lino, pIcBty ttf public lands of the

finest qunlltv awaiting homestead settlement;

and Oicy aro being rapidly taken.

Large numbers (.( soldiers who, under

tho now low of Congress obtain

Irec

homesteads ot 100 acres, near railroads

A Nnw JEUSEY

HOKBR THIEF,— A

man named Austin has been arrested for

stealing horses from tbo New Jersey

farmers on the Delaware river and locked

np in jail in Elizabeth. A few days

after his arrest a prepossessing woman,

apparently not over nineteen years ol

age, carrying a bundle, appeared At tho

jail aud asked to see tho prinoner, whom

she said was her husband.

Bho was admitted,

and she conversed witli Austin '

for Bomo time.

After her departure

Sberift Applegale searched Iho prisoner.

Several files, a saw, n jimmy aud three

steel wires for jnckiug locks were found.

On Saturday Ulrs. Austin, carrying a roll

of butter, visited tho jail and nsked to

see her huBband.

Applegato this time

had prepared a trap for her. IIo roquested

her to allow him to examine tho

butter.

This she did under protest and

with reluctance, aud tho result was tho

finding of a bottle of aquafortis in tho

ceutcr of tho roll.

Upon her pm-son was

also found a photograph-case bearing

her likeness, which sue said sho desired

to present to her husband,

Upon examining

the back of this case a steel

knife as thiu as a wafer woe found,

hacked like n saw, two thiu files, another

was mndo from a watch spring, and

another b»tch of steel wire.

She was

locked Up and is now in tho New Riiiuawick

CLOVES.—Clovtm ore the unopened

flowers of a small evergreen tree that reseinbles,iu

appearance the laurel or bay,

it is a native ot tho Moluci?a or Spien

Islands, but has been carried to all tbe

warmer parts of tho world, and is now

cultivated in the tropical regions of

Amorlen. Tho flowers arc small in si^

and grow in largo uumbcu-a, in cluKtera,

to the very edge of tho branches. The

cloves we use are tho flowers gathen^d

before they ure opened, and while they

uru still green.

After being gathered

they arc smoked ky a wood fire, and

then dried iu tbo sun. Each clove consists

of two parts—of a round head,

which is the four petals, or leuvci-, or

flowers rolled m>, including a number

of smaU stalks or filaments; tho other

part of the clove is terminated with four

points, aud is, in fact, the flower of the

unripo seed-vessel.

All these parts may

be seen if a few cloves are soaked for a

short tiiuo in hot water, wheu the leaves

of tho flower soften and readily unroll.

Both tbe taste and the suiell of cloves

depend on the quantity of oil they contain.

Sometimes tbe oil is separuted

from tho cloves befoio they aroso]d,'aud

tbe odor aud fasto aro iu cousctinencc

much weukcued,
