II is uverreil In the IPoiM that "flee

cardinal tenet of the Democratic creed."
As tills assertion l contmry to the pre

looked back into the national platforms of

Tills re.-olvo was renfllrmed by tho Con

is no doubt that this could be tnken by

ner, aflliiiud nnd muiutaiued tliu doo
trinu of frco tmde, nnd hns never
iu tlie whole of its career plainly nnd
unequivocally preeiited that Issue to tliu
puoplu for decision in nuy election.
It is true, however, Hint there have

There Is scarcely a variety of fruit, from
the orange to tho I'ngll'li while currant,
which docs not grow in abundance In tho

grapevines produce as luxuriantly ns in
tlio south of France, while apples glow as

and the facilities for raising live stock are
superior to those of thu Free ftnto or Capo
Hut what will chlelly Influence the emi

Is thu discovery or gold Iu that country, In
regard to which there i.t now no doubt.
About u j ear ago we published an account

ore nnd coal deposits have been discovered
In the snmo region so near en eh oilier that
the ore can bo smelted on the spot w here

There can be no doubt that Trnnsviuil Is

Wbiit We Might Know nbout Insects.
Of tlio many works on scientific subjects
which havo been written by tho Fronch author,
M. Louts lWmir.it, the entertaining volume Just
published by 1). Appleton Co. of this city, en
titled 'i7ie Imeel H'ortd, Is probably tho most
strictly accurate and trustworthy fn all Its de
tails. When a Frenchman undertakes to wrlto
ou popular science ids Imagination Is apt to run
away with him. Wo do not know that M.
Flguler has suffered such a mishap, except In
so far as relates to his latest and weakest book,
"ThoT'o-morrrowof Doath"; but it Is never
theless satisfactory to know tliat the present
work, In Us llngllsli dress, has boon revlso.l and
corrected through out by Trof. V. MAnTin Dun
Can, T. II. 8., of Klni's CollC'C, London, an ac
complished entomologist, ami himself tho
author ot a recently published book on thu
transformations of insects.
Probably most persons, if asked to give ex
amples of tho tmects more commonly met with
In this climate, would mention spiders and cen
tipedes as among them, and when wo know that
neither a spider nor a contlpeds Is In reality an
Insect at all, this fact onablos us to appreciate
tho popular need: of Jujt such a work as
that beforo us, presenting some of tho load
ing truths of entomology In an attractive and
vivacious style, with many Interesting anec
dotes by way of Illustration. In every chapter
one Is surprised by the strange facts hitherto
unknown lo him concerning the most familiar
Now, whstarothe exterior characteristics of
an luieet? In tho ant placo he belongs to tho
groat prlm-vry division of tho animal kingdom
kn.iwn as tho .trftciitdta ; thnt is to say, animals
of a ring-like structure, among which aro Includ
ed tho cridace.i (lobsters, crabs, Ac), the
nraohnld.1 ispl.lers, from the Greek ururMlf, a
spldori: an.l tho niyrlaiuda (cntlp?doj, i-c,
froniaOrcek word me mini myriad-footed), as
wil ns Insects. Ills body Is covered with toush
inle'umsnts, and Is divided Into three parts:
First, tho head, with oyes, in juth.aud two horn
1IW" sppenliecj cilled antonn; second, the
thorax or trunk, consist. nt of threo segments,
which always lini six legs underneath It. and Iu
most casei two or four wings abovo It; and
third, tlio abdomen, in nlno segments, some of
which are freipientlr not to bo detocted except
upon close ex imlnatton.
Tho circulation of tho hlood In Inscts was dls
covered Iu 1S27 by a German naturalist namd
Cams. Tho circulatory system, however, is In
complete. Thero nro no arteries or veins, but
the process Is carried on by means of ths hevl'a
action In distributing tho fluid through tho
dorsal region, whence It returns between tLe
membranes and fibres of tha principal internal
organs, or throuj-h tho gaps which separate
these organs. Tha nervous centres consist of
ganglions or bundles of nervos, placed In tho
bead, and aloiu tho under side of the body.
Membranous duets or great tenuity, called tra
chea, constitute tho essential portion of tho
brcathiii'appvratus Into which ulr psustrates
from the sides uf tho body.
All hii-reU have six truo logs, though In snmo
casus every one may not bo d:volopod. They
have two sorts of eyes, shnplo and compound,
each of the latter made up of many facottes,
varying In number from fltty tn tho ant and four
thousand in tho common houso fly to more tlisn
twenty-flvo thousand In tho vSrnrii'xriis htetle,
Tho requlromonts of each particular order nf
Insects determine tho type on which tho mouth
Is formed. It is adapted to suction In such as livo
upon ll'pilds, and to biting In tho caso ot thoso
that reed upon solid substances. Tlie antenna)
or horns, of which thero aro alwav two, aro
usually placed Just In front of the ees. They
nro frequently termed feelers, but their 'unc
tions In this rospect aro IkjIIovo.I to bo subordi
nate tu others not yet under-tood. It haibeen
conjectured that they may be organs d hearing ;
they certainly having nothing to do with tho
taste or smell.
Tho classification of Insects Into orders, of
which thero aro nine. Is based upon tho d'stlact
Ivo features of tho wings, except In tho case of
ono order which has no wings, and thero It is
based upon that fact. Tlio name of each order
ends In p(rm from tho (Ircek word plrroit, u
wing. Thus wo hats thu Apttra (without
wings), comprising fleas, audllco; tho Dlplcm
(two winged), gnats, Hies, and uiusqultoos; tho
frmfpfmi (half-winged), bugs, cicadas, and
plant lice; tlio LrpMoplrrrl (scaly winged), but
terflies and moths; tho Orlhopfcm (straight
winged), grasshoppers, locusts, crickets, and
cockroaches; tho fmnnipffrei (membraneous
w lnged), bees, humble bees, wasps, and hornets ;
tho ;fiinnp(ri-.i (with fringe-like wings), small
black flics; tho .Yritropfmi (with nervo-llke or
lace-llko wings), dragm (Has, May files, and
white ants; and tlio Oofroptrni (with sheathed
wings). Including the various species of lief ties.
Of tbcio nlno orders tho ffumciinpbTiJ rank
highest in Intolllgenree. The honey beo af
fords a familiar example of this preeminence.
Our author status that the Hebrew nauio for
bees Is Deborah. Its nlso oontends that It Is In
correct to ascribe thu Invention of tho art of
embalming tu the an-imit I'gypliaus, saying
that bees wero really tho first 1 1 prncllso It,

to die a miserable death,
M, Ftguler Insists that the mother beo Is Incor
rectly denominated queen, and that a commu
nity of bees Is not a monarchy htit a republln.
In fids connection he tolls tho following story ;
" 'There la no such thins as a king In nature,'
Jsald Dauljenton one day, In one of his lectures
at the Jardln des Plantes. The audlonco Imme
diately applauded, and cried, 'Hravol' The
honest satVmt stopped, qulto disconcerted, and
asked Ids assistant naturalist tlio cause of this
applause, perhaps Ironical. 'I must, havo said
something stupid,' repeatod poor Duibcnlon,
romembcrlng tho sa) Ingot Phoclon under simi
lar clrctiin'tanros. 'No,' replied his aslstntit
naturalist, 'you havo said nothing but what is
qulto truo; but, without meaning It, you linvo
mado n political alltltlon. You spoko against
kbits, nnd our young republicans thought you
were alluding lo LoillsXVL' ' Indeed.' snld tho
coadjutor of Iliilfon, 'I had no Idea that I was
In power of sustained flight, bees, wasps, and
oilier species of ll-jmrnnptcm, notwithstanding
tlielr apparent superiority In strength, nro sur
passod by tho homo fly and other dipterous In
sects. When they havo passed from tlio larval and
chrysalis states Into their final and perfect form,
the Lrpfdopftni are tho most graceful ami beau
tiful of insects, comprising, as they do, tho
numerous and liandsomo families of butterflies.
To this order also belong tho hawk-moths, of
which tho largest Is tho well known death's
head moth, on whoso black thorax, marked In
yellow, appears tho rough outllno uf a human
skult. Among tho Ignorant such a peculiarity
could scarcely f All to excite superstition, and In
many rural districts this harmless moth ts look
ed upon ns a messenger of death. When caught,
or It teased, It utters a mournful:cry,whlch adds
to the terror Its approach Inspires. "One hears
It said In country places that this ominous In
habitant of tlio air Is In Icatuo with the witches,
and that It goes and murmurs Into their ears
with Its sad and plslntlvo volco tho nimo of tho
person whom death is soon to carry off." In
reality, boos aro ths only creatures that havo
roason to dread tho death's head moth; hs Is
excessively fond of honey, and his ekln Is Im
penetrable to stings, so that Ids entrance into a
hive is followed by most disastrous havoc.
The Colropttra, or beetles, usually occupy the
most prominont placo In collections of Inserts,
because they can bo so easily preserved. Thero
aro believed to bo at least ono hundred thousand
spScles: a first-rato collection will ordinarily
contain twenty-flvo thousand. Among tho
curious Insects of this order aro found tlie rose
beetle, gntlath, stag bectto, nnd Spanlsii Ar
ia ltussli tho rose bectto Is dried, rcilucod to
powder, and administered Internally as a remedy
for hydrophobia. "According to M. llogdinoff.
In manv governorships of tho south of ltursla,
the lovers of sporting are In tho habit of making
their dogs, from time to time, swallow, as a pre
servative, half of a Cttonla (rose beetle), with
bread or a lit tie wins. Lr cry oris In those coun
tries Is persuaded of the efficacy of this means
for stopping tho development of ths disease."
Tlie gollath beetles of the western coast of
Africa are gigantic Insects, which attain a lenpth
of from three to flto Inches, and aro captured
by shooting them from tha trees -.rlth guns
loaded with sand, In tlio manner adopted to
secure specimens of humming birds. The slug
beetle Is called oak-ox In Sweden, from Its habit
of Imbibing the, honeyed liquid which Is found
ou oak trees. "Swammcrdam had ono which
followed li 1 in like a dog when he offered It
honey." Oanthitrldcs, tho Spanish llles of c m
merce, are gregarious, and are caught byshnLlus
them from the trees on which they allg'.t at
night, when they aro bonumbed by lbs eld and
unable to escape. They are killed by Immersion
In vinegar. In gathering them It Is necessary to
take tho precaution of putting on gloves, as ths
naked hand would bo seriously blistered. In
spltoof tho powerful corrosive principle con
tained In cautharldes, other Insocts feed on
them without suffering any apparent Injury.
Kntomology enjoys one great and manifest ad
vantage over other natural sciences of similar
rnnk. It can be studied anywhero and every
where. Insect Ufo Is almost omnipresent. Of
late years It hasbeenthesourcowlicncostudcnts
uf tho modern acleie-o of biology havo derived
many most valuable facts. Thero are these and
other forcible reasons why the study nf entomo

tlio entire population wero rough, long boarded
