?The rascally Johanna men, who ran away
from Dr. Livingstone and told such whoppers
about him, have had the impudence to send in
their claims for payment of wages.
?Six women, in various parts of England,
have been elected to parochial boards, and
it is becoming not uncommon for women of
the Established Church to preach on Sunday.
?We know that acordwainer is a shoemaker,
and that a wife is very apt to be as you make
her, bat that ia hardly a sufficient reason for
making an atrocious conundrum, and we de
cline to do it.
?A libel suit is impending over the Chicago
Tribune. A reporter brought in at a very late
hour a report that a certain well-known firm
had failed. It was published as a rumor, and
this suit is brought to recover the trifling sum
of one hundred thousand dollars.
?A Prussiai) woman has revealed the fact,
upon her deathbed, that she substituted her
own child for the infant of a countess, in whose
employ she was some thirty years ago. Both
are alive, and married in accordance with their
widely different stations, and the muddle is as
bad as can be.
?The Germans are beginning to print their
books in Roman type. It is found much clear
er and less ttying to the eyes. Ophthalmolo
gy?which killed half the poor compositors be
fore they had been ten years at the business,
and caused a German printing office to be the
funniest assemblage of pale faces, small forms,
and big green goggles ever seen?will be ban
ished by the change.
S ?A new machine for navigating the air, in
vented by a Scotchman, will be brought out
un?er the auspices of the British Aeronautic
Society. It is a sort of bird, with a body fif
teen feet in length, and wings stretching ou*
to the width of thirty-five feet. A tail reaches
ont behind to give direction to the movement,
while the wings are flapped by an engine of
forty horsefpower. This, it is thought, can be
made to proceed through the air at the rate of
forty miles an hour.
?The devotion of some sacans to science is
illustrated by the testimony of a medical expert
in a poisoning case lately tried in France. He
found no difficulty in detecting poison in the
stomach of the deceased, and acknowledged
that he had observed symptoms which he at
tributed to this cose, before the death of the
gentleman, whom he had attended. On beiug
asked if he had administered antidotes, he re
plied: "No, for their presence in the stomach
would have masked the presence of the poison,
which could hot, therefore, have been proved
at the inquest."
?The result of the election in Chicago last
week is peculiarly gratifying when we recall
the fact that the Democrats have made a gain
of nineteen hundred and four votes over the
last Congressional election in 13GG; and in
another view, as showing the importance which
the Radicals attached to it ; for we learn from
the Chicago Republican of Monday that "To
morrow's results in Chicago wiil be t&keu as
an indication of how the West stands political

the last great election that will take place in
the Northwest before the great national con
?The subject of impeachment is discussed
in an editorial in the Pall Mall Gazette, which
says : "The temper of the House of Represen
tatives, as exhibited in the managers, hardly
professes to rise above excited partisanship
To get the President out of office without the
loss of a day is their declared object, and their
prosecution of it is not retarded by any consid
erations of jus,ice or decency. Ic is even
doubtful whether the managers have conde
scended to noiico the legal points raised in the
answer, and their opposition to the very reason
able request for delay submitted by the Pre vi
?Lut's counsel certainly shows that they either
fail to estimate, or deliberately "'disregard, the
importauco of the issues raised."
?Cannibalism continues in A'jeria. Freuen
soldiers are waylaid, knocked on the head, and
made into broth or potted for future eating.
Two women, o.ich having a child, lived with a
tribe near Tiaret. These unfortunates did all
thoy could for a long time to stave off the hor
rors of famine; but at length all their resources
being exhausted, and public charity no longer
to be relied on, they agreed to eat the children.
A bargain was agreed to, and lots were drawn
as to which should be first killed. The mother
who lost gave up her infant, which was killed
and eaten. This served for a few days; but at
last the hideous supply came to au eud, and
tho woman who had eacrificcd her offspring
claimed that tho other shoukl submit to the
same bss. Tiio latter refused, being unable
to bring her iniud to that extreme measure.
After long altercations both mothers at length
agreed to submit their differences to the deci
sion of the Arab bnre.:u, and in this way the
borriblo facts came to light.
?Narvaez, tho Spanish Minister of War,
whose death nan been announced by a cable
di ipatch, had been four times prime minister
and engaged m two rebellions, thus establish
ing a claim to be regarded as a geuiiine Span
ish statesman. Ho was born in 1800 at Loja
in Andaltis.a, and nrst became prominent in the
war of liberation against,the First Napoleon.
He became brigadier-general by his services to
the government during the Carlist civil war.
Espousing tlic cause oi the Queen's mother,
Christina, he first quarrelled with Espartero
in 1340, and in the folio-wing year attempted
an insurrection to overthrow him. He failed
in this and fled to Paris, but two years later
was successful and became Duke of Valencia.
His administration as the] returned Queen
Mother's chief adviser was adverse to progress.
In 1S47 he was sent as ambassador to Taris,
but returned the same year and was again
made president of the council. His second
administration ended in 1831, and he remained
out of office until 1SC4, when his third term
began and lasted about a year, when he made
way for Marshal O'Dormell, whom he also suc
ceeded in 13CC.
WEDNESDAY MORNING, AFRIL 29, 18G8.
The Latest from the Laureate.
We print this morning the long-promised
poem for which the literary world has
looked with so much eagerness, and which
Mr. Texxvsox has been said tobe maturing
ever since the publication of "Enoch Ar
den.'' It is much shorter than we had been
led to expect, and like most long anticipa
ted gifts, hardly equals our hopes. The
"Lucretius" who is here celebrated is appa
rently the famous Latin poet of that name,
of whom there is little more to be said than
that he was born, probably at Rome, about
90 B. C., and died by his own hand in the
forty-fourth year of his age. The aim of
the Laureate seems to have been to epito
mize the famous poem of Lucretivs, "De
Herum Natura,'' in the shape of a dream
occurring to the poet, after the manner nar
rated in the poem. In dramatic truth and
power "Lucretius" is far from defective,
and there is much of that felicity of expres
sion for which Mr. Texxtsox is so justly
renowned. But there are not wanting also
affectations and obscurities which we can
hardly forgive in so carefully elaborated an
effort of so great a poet. The poem will
hardly add much to Mr. Texxvsox's fame.
His warm admirers, and they are many,
will find much to praise and to enjoy; but
his critics will find hardly less to censure.
If the true measure of the Laureate's great
ness be, as has been suggested, "Morte
D'Arthur'' and "Guinevere,"' "Lucretius"
can hardly be called a step in advance.
The telegraph informs us that the mili
tary establishments of the great European
powers are about to experience a reduc
tion. It is high time. With Ruseia, Prus
sia and France, the army has been a chronic
disease, and if it has been true that Austria
has but to stamp upon the earth to create
an army, the earthquake was certain to be
followed by a financial epidemic. France
became sick of her army before its reorgan
ization had been completed; Italy before
the unification of the Peninsula had been !
accomplished; the Pope before the ranks of
Catholic chivalry were full; England before
the end had been reached by the thousands
whom she dispatched into Abyssinia after
that foolish Theodorus who ruled the Afri
oan Switzerland and Nile-springs, and
thence hurled love and defiance?the arrow
and the javelin?at Victoria Regixa. Tur
key has always been a sick man?that is to
say, ever since he could no longer subsist
his army upon the spoils of conquered na
tions. It is well for Europe's Kings and
Princes that the warlike establishments
they have been lately maintaining and aug
menting, should be promptly and even ;
Except for exigencies, which cannot be
expected to occur frequently, a standing
army is a great evil. It is even a cause
rather of weakness than strength. The !
proverb that "Providence always favors the
strongest battalions," is by no means a
historic axiom. A higher than philosophic
wisdom, on the contrary, leads us to expect
that "they that take the sword shall perish
by the sword." With a few exceptions, a
standing army consists of producers who
have been drawn away from ihe fields of
labor, and made consumers whom other
men's labor must feed and clothe. And for
the most part, the officers are idlers and
loungers?the drones of the human hive.
This host is organized to destroy. Destruc
tion is its busiuess:?the destruction of ene
mies in time of war?the destruction of
patrons in time of peace, as some of the
African tribes devour the authors of their
being:?destruction by the sword that stabs
and hacks upon the fields of giorj, or de
struction by the knife?or shall we call it
the social spade ??that cuts and shovels in
upon the fields of bliss. A standing arm;
is an immense crowd of poor relations?

on every occasion as if each meal was the

worth keeping, for it takes out the heart
and pride t?nd public spirit of a people. It
is worse than war, in perpetuating those
evils, which war introduces only as tempo
rary measures. A force carefully handled,
held back by an unreasoning power, which
to all below is iron, and to some inscruta
ble influence above is war. leaves all the
future in vague uncertainty. A general
visits an immense peaceful city, spends a
day or two there without observation, goes
to church, aud then quietly returns home.
Now it is whispered that he went to confer
absolute power in such or such an event,
upon an inferior officer: to direct where
the cannon should be planted and the broad
sides of the fl;et should roll. Henceforth.,
every night, a gloomy spirit floats over thai
great city?a world in itself!?brandishing
his sword. At a signal, given hundreds
and hundreds of miles away, the glittering
menace will descend.
When government is in weak hands, a
political r?volution, or even a civil ?meute,
miy effect the changes necessary for the
relief of a people. But when a government
:s swayed by irresponsible and unscrupu
lous strength, change means war; and a
standing army threatens the population
whom it at the same time slowly consume*.
It is a torrent as motionless, jet as mighty

less at one instant, at the next it may be
sliding down; silent to-day, it may rage
like a mountain storm to-night; poising
itself, it may let itself go: but when it will
slip loose, and how, and why, no man
knows; for the creature is as portentous
and inscrutable as the fate of a Greek
Europe is tired of national armies. Sc
are we, but with more reason than any peo
ple in Europe. For where else in the world
are there two armies, the one visible, the
other invisible, swaying the same people
and consuming their substance and their
franchises?one army marching and drilling
with bayonets, in the day, and the other
meeiing and drilling with dark "lanterns and
torches in the vaults of night. Unhappy
