AUTOGRAPHS AT GOOD PRICES.
A valuable and fcoincwhat noted
collection of autographs, the pro
perty of the late Mi&s Louisa Ely,
of CScrniantown, Peon., was recently
sold at auction in New York city.
About fifty collectors and dealers
were present at Hie sale and the
prices paid arc considered to have
been good. The following particu
lars will interest those who give
attention to such matters. To the
mere outsider who knows nothing of
the whims of collectors and the ins
and outs of this particular craze,
the varying prices brought by the
different lots seem in some instances
to bear very little proportion to
cither the fame of the writers or the
probable scarcity of their hand
writing: The sale began with the disposal
of an autograph letter of President
John Adams to Mr. Graham for
12.50, and the same purchaser
immediately bid $18 for one of
liencdict Arnold's letters. A mis
sive from Henry Clay was worth $0
to Mr. Graham, and one from James
Fenimoru Cooper was secured for
$11 by a purchaser designated as
"1 II." This latter purchaser bid
$10.f)0 for one of 'Washington
Irving' s letters, $10 for onu of
President Lincoln's, $(!.() for one
of President Monroe's, $8 for a
warrant signed by Queen Anne of
England, $8,.r)() for a letter of Leigh
Hunt, $5.00 for a military commis
sion under the hand of Junius II.,
and 51.25 for a souvenir of Anne of
Austria, wife of Louis XIII. of
.France. A two-page letter, written
by George Washington in 17117,
sold for $7f), to someone who con
cealed his identity under n tender of
A letter fiom Charles I. to
Prince Hupeit was worth 835 to
Mr. Forrest, and an order on u
Sheriff signed by the same monarch
was secured by Mr. .Green for $10.
The latter gentleman also paid S1U
and $11 respectively for a commis
sion signed by Charles J I. while in
exile, and a warrant for garrison pay
signed by him in 1071.
Prince Rupert's signuturc was
worth $10 to Mr. Savage, but a
handful of letters from minor Bona
parte Princes sold from $2 to $3.75
each. Napoleonic documents, issued
(luring the Consulate and after he
became Emperor, were valued nt
83.50 to $7.75. A letter from
Charles V., the Spanish monarch,
was worth S to Mr. Green, who
valued a manifesto of Charles IX.
of France at $25. The documents
of the Louis, from Louis XI. to
Louis Phllippo, sold for fiom $2 to
S3. An autograph score by Mozart
of a trio for pianoforte, clarionet,
and flute was sold for SB0, to Mr.
Savnge, who alo paid $10 for an
order concerning some guns signed
In 17t I by Cnrnot, Pricur, and
The Planters' Monthly for June
is to hand. Us contents arc varied,
and of great value to the planting
interest. Mr. Thurston, the new
editor, is to be congratulated upon
maintaining the excellent standard
to which this periodical Jias attained
under his experienced predecessor.
A Los Angeles paper urges beet
sugar manufacture upon the atten
tion of its constituency. Thcic
seems to be " millions " in the beet,
in its opinion. However, California
farmers arc not likely ever to raise
beets for the highest price that can
be afforded for them by sugar manu
facturers. The Kapiolani Park will never
amount to much as a popular recrea
tion ground for the inhabitants of
the city, until greater facilities are
provided for getting to it. If a rail
way cannot be built, rapid and
pleasant communication by Jwatcr
might be feasible and a source of pro
fit to the projectors.
Speaking of the pioposed choice
of Mr. James Russell Lowell as Pro
fessor of English Language and
Litcialurc in Oxford University, the
New York World remarks: "Mr.
Lowell or any educated American
would be valuable to Oxford students
in teaching them how to speak the
English language correctly.','
It seems some of the planters have
been taken by surprise with a cir
cular from the Immigration Depart
ment, calling upon them to pay in 20
percent of their Japanese laborers'
wages to the Japanese Consul. "An
Indignant Planter," in the Monthly,
advises planters to continue to neg
lect the order, saying, "The Japan
ese have enough to do to pay back
their advance and buy .some decent
clothing in the meantime." The
editor of that periodical is informed
by the President of the Board that
the clause containing the above re
quirement was inserted in the con
tracts by the Japanese Government
without the knowledge of the Board.
The Monthly, judiciously we think,
advises planters to abide by the
contracts in all particulars. The
Japanese Government scores one for
its shrewdness in thus providing for
the return of its people if they do
not desire, upon fair experience of
the country, to remain here.
