ing manufacturers to label their packages
with a correct analysis, is one of great im
portance both to dealers and farmers. Tho
adulterations aro so common that it is now
with tho greatest risk that piuchcx. art
made. Even tho soap factories mix coal
ashes with what conies from their leaches
and sell tlio whole. Wo havo suffered iv
this way together with several of our
neighbors who wore considered as sharp as
the average of men. Our farmers ar.
disgusted and bewildered. Tho local deal
ers often meaning lo bo honest aro them
selv • imposed upon by dishonest manu
facturers. The great loss resulting from
tho sale of worthless material aa a fertilizer
can only be realized by farmers and hortl
cultura'ists. The first outlay for tho stuff
is but a small part of it. Tho uso of tho
land, expensive preparation, planting and
cultivation of the crop is often a total loss.
Lands utterly worthless in a natural stato
will often become highly remunerative
with a good fertilizer.
Our finest melons aud cantolop — aro
raised upon barren sands, by manuring in
tho hill. Much of our corn, tobacco, and
other staples, havo to be raised upon worn
lauds; and if the fertilizer is uot what it
purports to be, n total loss of all the labor,
seed and time may utterly ruin tlio culti
vator. A man who sells an adulterated
article, is not merely a thief, but ho is a
public enemy, a conspirator, who ought to
bo proceeded against in tlie most summary
mauncr. Ho ought to bo compellod to
mako good a" tho losses that he has
caused, aa well as to suffer tho severest
J penalty for his ciitno. Wo ho'po this law
I will havo a healthy influence upon the
public, and lead to honest deallug iv mino

that inc't of the articles of this kind

Tho bill providing for tho salo of tho
State stock in tho Richmond and Peters
burg railroad to Messrs. 11. K. E'lyson &
Co., it is thought, will bo reported to the
Senate to-morrow for action. Ino strategy
of its enemies will be to attempt to hitch
on to it an amendment of some kind, no
mattor what, if it should on*y be the alter
tion of a word, that it may—in case It
should be caniod—be forced br ik into the
llouso, where tho desperate baltlo of the
past week would havo to be fought over
again. 'Inc first intimation of this sys
tem of trickery, is in the outgiving
of tho purpose of General Mahone
to offer two hundred dollars a share for
tbo stock. Of courso, ho can offer four
hundred or a thousand just as well aud
for the satno purpose. lie knows and
everybody knows that ho would not give
that amount for any honest purpose
Wo know that extravagant prices are
somotimes paid for things apparently
valueless. If he can givo this sum for a
road ovor which he has all the privileges
ho cau ask, aud over whose road bed ho
could lay another track for one-half the
money offered for the State's interest, do
not the peoplo see that thero is a deep
design concealed under the offer, —that
there is a very large "black cat in
the meal tub," —a conspiracy to ruin
tichinoud and tho entire Stat; —save,
perhaps, that nanow strip through which
Goneral Mtvhone's road passes. Our friends
must, therefore, bo on their guard whon
ho bill comes up iv tho Senate Thoy
must press it to its passage just as it camo
rom tho House, aud take care that no
mendinents or alterations aro made—not
veu tho crossing of a lor the dotting of
nf. It will bo fatal to tho bill, perhaps,
lould their strategy succeed in throwing
t back into the House at this late hour of
ho session. Mahono will promise any
ling—offer everything—all that Satan
empted tho Saviour with—to accomplish
lis purposo, If ho sees a prospoct of tho
ill passing the Senate by the roquisito
vote ; therefore, beware of his gifts, and
tand firm for the right.
We know that the corporations against

Trapping (lie Black Dear.
Thero aro numerous speci —■ of bears,
some not larger than a Merino sir :p, and
others weighing as much as the largest ox.
Tho American black bear is found in all
the largo forrsts of tho Northern and
Western States, and Canada. They bring
forth their young in eaves or hollow trees,
In May or June, generally two at a birth,
aud during this period it is dangerous to
approach the dam. At other times, they
will not attack a man, unless in celf-dr
fenco. They are great ea'jrs, devouring
corn, oats, gra s, acorns, roots, fish, flesh,
fowl and honey. Thoy seem particularly
partial to the lat' it, and inter dining on
fat pig, nothing affords them moro satis
faction than to rob a bees' nest. This rich,
carbonaceous food, enabl- s them to store
up large quantities of fat during tho sum
mer and autumn. On tho approach of
winter they retire to a cavo and tako a long
sleep until tho advent of warm weather iv
tho spring. Liko other hybemating ani
mals, they live during this poriod on tho
fat Btored up during tho previous summer
and winter. It fares ill with a well bred
pig who happens to bo neighbor I > a bear,
hutigry for a breakfast, after his long
Mr. Trasher, author of tho Hunter and
Trapper, says: "Their modo of eating the
hog is to take him up in their arms and
squeczo him some, commencing at tho same
time to take thoir dinner out of tho shoul
der and neck at tho back of the hog, which
is alive, and squealing as only a hog cau
squeal. A bear will carry a hog as heavy
as himself. • • Ho is a great natural
boxer, and it is not easy to hit him with a j
club, for he defends himself liko a well
trained pugilist. He is a great hand to I
fight dogs, sets himself upon end and cuffs j
them right aud left, ono clip being enough
to make a cripple. The bear is very fond
of sweets. It is ono of thoir curious trick
to climb a tree where bees navo stored
their honey, and gnaw them out ; their
constant growling about tho bees'
stings, ofteu showing their where
abouts to the hunter. Aud they are
often butrayed at the hog-pen by the
squealing of tho hogs. Nothing suits
them better than to find a hog iv a pen,
aud no one to oppose them. Thoy will
climb in and out again, hog and all."
Thero are several ways of trapping the
bear, but the one now generally adoptod is
to set a steel trap near some place where
tho bear has been committing depredations,
such t's robbing a hog-pen. The trap i»
set, if convenient, under water, or iv a
swampy place, covering tho trap in either
case with moss, bo as to look as natural as
possible, and hanging a piece of fresh pig
or sheep over tho trap in such a way ihat
the bear must step ou the treddlu iv order
to reach it. A short chain and olog, with
tbroo hooks, is attached firmly to the trap,
which impedes the progress of the bear
after ho is caught.

London, March 19.—Evontsof tho most
unfortunate character havo takon place in
Paris, and the situation is hojrly becoming
graver. The government, following up
the proclamation of President Thiers, at
midnight on Friday sent a detachment of
! troops and gendarmes f j occupy the porii-
J tions of tho insurgents in Montmartre. A
considerable number of cannon were re
moved, and the gendarmes made some 400
I prisoners. In the morning the National
Guards of B-llevilleand Montmartro, with j
many unarmed soldiers of the lino, arrived
on the sceno aud released the prisoners.
Gen. Vinoy, who wrs in command of
the government forcci, had posted a ccr
don of troops around the hill of Mont
martre, and planted mitrailleuses at tho
approaches, and his sentinels prevented
all persons irom ascending tho hill. Bat
tories of mitrailleuses were soon surrounded
Iby angry groups, who demanded to know
why the authorities distrusted tho proplo,
! aud if it was their intention to massacre
j them. The soldiers when psked if thoy !
i meant to fire on the citizens mado no reply,
I and si an a general fraternization com-
A SANGUINARY MFLIiE.
At tho samo hour a serious conflict oc
curred in Place Pigalle, at the end of a
street leading from the heights. Some
artillerymen and chacseurs were surround
i Iby an angiy mob, who accosted them
with shouts of "Gi tnl tho Prus
sians." A lieutenant of chrsseurs, while
oudeavoring to disengage his horse from
the crowd, drew his sabre. Ho was in
stantly drugged from h ; a horso and killed.
A melee followed, in which an artillery
man and two nationals were woundrd, but
tho fn ing soon ceased.
Tho toldlers abandoned their pos's and
minglod with the crowd, distributing
among (hem tho cur ildfea and relinquish
ing their chatsepots. Tho ar.illerymm
_______ tho people to retake two mitral
, levies, making no further show of resist
ance. Tho gendarmes alone proved faith
ful to tho government, but wore too few

THE GOVERNMENT FOILED.
At II o'clock many battalions of nation
al guards, fully organized, marched into
Mont,mnrlre, shouting "vivola'republiquc."
Tht) district was then wholly in possession
of the nationals, tho soldiers having de
serted. Not a gendarme, nor a regular
waa visible. All tho national guards were
amply supplied with cartridges, and ap
peared determined to retain their caunon
and hold their position on the heights.
PURPOSE OF THE INsUROENTS.
Tho purposes of the insurgents aro Btill
indefinite. Their main object just now is
resistance tn the government.
Startling facts connected with tho events
ofthe morning have become known. Gen
eral Paron was surrounded for several
hours by a mob in Montmartre. His trtops
proved faithful. They charged and took
tbrce barricades, using the bayonet, and
finally cut their way out and escaped.
Genoral Lecompto and others were not so
fortunate. Abandoned by thoir men, thoy
wero mado prisoners by the rioters, and
aro now detained in Chatau Rouge. Gen
eral Patuxal was wounded'
In the morning the troops succeeded in
capturing forty cannon in Montmartre. Of
theso the peoplo retook five, without
fighting. Tho remainder wero removed
to a place of safety. Tho rebels killed,
cut up and ato the horso of a staff officer
who was mado prisoner. Tho rebols aro
now building additional barricades in
Montmartro, Rellovillo and Faubourg St.
At 9 o'clock P. M. it was roported that
Generals Lecompte and Clement Thomas,
tho latter formerly commander-in-chief of
the National Guards, who were captured
iv tho morning, had been shot by the in
surgeuts after a summary trial. The news
spread consternation throughout the city.
Goneral Vinoy's staff and tho troops of
the liuo, and tho entire force of gendarmes,
have retired to tho left bank of tho Seine,
leaving the National Guards to restore
harmony on the right.
