graphies of General Grant, it is stated, are in
rapid preparation by authors and printers for

-Smugglers have been introducing silks,
opium and cigars into San Francisco, by con?
cealing the articles in hollow logs, shipped, it
is stated, from Victoria, British Columbia. The
logs are bored as if to be used for water pipes,
and the ends are then tapered off until the Une
of union with the plug which has been insert?
ed is made as indistinct as possible.
-In schools in Germany, it is reported, the
art of housekeeping is taught thoroughly. Es?
says aro written upon the subject setting forth
the prices of fowls. How much a fat fowl
should veigh. How much a lean one. A reason?
able pri-je. What food fattens fowls best. What
sort of fowls they are, and how old. The price
of cabbages, of carrots, of apples; their sorts,
tho quantity produced; the daily expenses, the
bargains., the shops, are all discussed.
-In France, thc laws are very strict against
persons in civil lite carrying weapons. An in?
vention has recently been made, however,
which, while conforming to the law, is a par?
tial aid as a means of defence against midnight
robbers. It consists of a small horn inserted
in the end of a cane, which contains an electric
battery and a small lamp with two powerful re?
flectors. The intensity of this light, it is said,
temporarily blinds any person at whom it is
pointed. The lamp is kindled at will, by press?
ing a small knob at tho other end of the stick,
which communicates with an electric wire.
-Prince Alfred, whose attempted assassina?
tion is announced from Australia, is Queen
Victoria's foiirih child. HJ was born in 1314,
and is consequently now about twenty-four
years of ase. From his earliest years he has
been regarded as the most intelligent and sen?
sible of the royal family, aud has been far
more popular with tho English people thau
any other of the Queen's childreu. He h sids
the rank of Duke of Edinburgh, and is a cap?
tain in the English navy. He has ttavelled ex?
tensively over the world, but whilst he has
been in the Canadas, he has not yet visited
the United States. Tho Cable reports the !
Prince in a fair way to recover, and adds that i
ho is to bo sent homo to England.
-A Washington letter says: "On the morn- ,
ing of tho recent election in Chicago the Ratji- i
cal organs made the most earnest appeals to
their partisans to turnout, and urged that it
would never do to allow the National Republi?
can Convention to bo held in a 'Copperhead' 1
city. The Chicago Tribune said that as Chicago 1
went that day, tho whole Southwest would go j
in November next. When the news came here j
on Thursday that tho Democrats had gained ,
the day, tho Radical Congressmen from Uli
nois would not believe it at first, and only gavo
in on tho most convincing proofs. The Radi- '
cals are slowly awaking to the fact that there 1
is not so much maxie in Grant's name as they ]
imagined. They emblazoned hie pic ture on their \
tickets in Now Hampshire and Connecticut, (
and the results were not very encouraging. <
When it was claimed that the Wcsi would go
for him in a whirlwiud of enthusiasm, and yet
in an important election in the metropolitan 1
city of his own Stato his party are overwhelm- t
ingly beaten, and this in the face oi the fact i
that they have triumphed at all the elections in ,
that city for years past.''
-It is allowed to but few men to survive
such a mass of obituary comments, and all
cast in thc high phrases of admiration, as Dr.
Livingstone has outlived. He will be the real ]
redioicits of our century. The very jaws of <
the gravo could not release one whose returned <
presence would furnish greater surprise and
moro general satisfaction. His will have been
tho only living eyes in the head of a white niau
that have surveyed thc lands and the inhabi- '
tnnts of the heart uftrnkuown Africa. His the '?
only faco that has leon bronzed by the fierce ;
buna of that vague and vast tropical inte- !
rior. Tho geographical societies will want
almost to de vom- him, in order to pos?
sess themselves bodily ol the treasury
of his rare knowledge. The ethnologists
will feel iiko pulling him limb from limb, roy?
alty will make haste to do him honor, whose [
own highest proof ol royalty is to be found in
bis mteJligent courage and undying fortitude.
His return, which may now be looked for in Entr- ;
land as not very far off, will create a social and
scientific stir to wir ch the Parliamentary de?
bates w?l be as nothing in comparison. And ;
all this, not simply because an individual has
succeeded in safely crossing the wilds of Alfi?
ca, but because a large knowledge of that
enigmatical continent has stretched and in?
formed tho thought of every man who aims
seriously to grasp a:id realize all the possible
conditions of tho human race.
-In noticing the arrival of Hon. Anson Bur?
lingame and suite at San Francisco on thc 31st
ult., tho Alta California says: ,;The arrival in '
San Francisco o; a special embassy, clothed 1
with extraordinary powers, from the oldest 1
empire in the world to the great treaty powers i
of America and Europe, is in itself an event j
deserving tho marked attention which it is ,
B?ro to attract. So long has China remained a
sealed book to the rest ot the world, so long
have the meshes of her perverse and impene?
trable diplomacy baffled the advance of all J
Christendom, we^cannot fail to regard tlr.s ?
mission as one endowed with peculiar signifi?
cance and importance. Added to this, how?
ever, is the fact Ithat the head of the embas?
sy is an American citizen, who returns
to his own native land clad with extraordinary
functions and hol(liii<r the .confidence of the
Imperial Government of a mighty and wealthy
people. This is the first substantial compli?
ment ever paid to American diplomacy, and
Hr. Burlingame may well be proud that he
has been thc first foreigner, as well as th ; first
American, to secure such a mark from so
haughty and exclusive an imperialism as that
ol' China. It is nothing less than introducing
Chinese to the great family of Christain na?
tions. In years io come the Courts of St.
James, Versailles, Berliu, Vienna, and the cap?
ital of our own country, will receive Chinese
ambassadors and ministers plenipotentiary.
America now stands sponsor tor these budding
diplomats from thc Centrai Flowery Land"
THURSDAY MORNING, AFRIL 30. 1868.
King Theodore Gone to Grata.
The Abyssinian war, which has just
closed, is a curious illustration of English
character. It was not until every device of
diplomacy had been exhausted in vain, not
until bribes had been rejected, ransom de?
nied, and every form of compromise
spurned, that John Bull made up his mind
to fight. The preparations for the war
were begun more than a year ago, and
amid a storm of ridicule and condemnation,
they continued, until at last an expedition?
ary force was organized, more complete in
its details than any which has ever left the
shores of England Troops adapted to the
peculiar service were gathered from India
and the East, appliances for the transporta?
tion of army materiel over the arid sands
and across the Abyssinian mountains were
provided ; and, with all the foresight of
human skill and experience, curious ma?
chinery was mr.de to supply the place of
men and animals. The chemist, electrician
and engineer contributed their wealth of
usefulness, and at last, when the sturdy
chief, with his Scotch caution and unwea?
ried patience, saw that all was well, he
gave the order, and England marched once
more to victory The result fully justifies
both the scale cn which the expedition was
organized and the tactics of its commander.
One decisive blow ha9 ended the war; the
English captives are on their way home?
ward rejoicing, and the voico of ridicule is
hushed in songs of praise. King THEODORE
has died '. in the last ditch, " and we sin?
cerely trust has gone to Abyssinian glory.
He was a half heathen and barbarian wretch
at best, and received just what he deserved
when NAT-IER wrote his obituary in blood.
Mr. TENNYSON'S new poem deserves some?
thing more than a passing notice, whether
it be regarded simply as to its intrinsic
merit, or, less individually, as the last elabo?
rate effort of so great a master. "Lucretius"
has been long expected, and from the form
of its announcement we had hardly looked
for its appearance in the ephemeral pages
of a magazine, a form of publication which
has not of late been conducive to the growth
of Mr. TENNYSON'S renown. But. since its
appearance in "Macmillan" is heralded
with much flourish of trumpets, and warn?
ings against piratical infringements of copy?
right, we are to presume that we have here
the identical poem which has been so long
looked for, and that the poet bas once more
given up his mind to be "vexed by the
shallow wit of the dark-browed sophists"
of the press.
Like most of Mr. TENNYSON'S elaborate
poems, "Lucretius'1 hardly unfolds its beau?
ties to the casual and thoughtless reader.
Carried on by tho wonderful melody of the
verse-and the Laureate's sternest critics
nan hardly deny that he has brought Eng?
lish blank verse to a pitch of rythmical per?
fection unrivalled in English literature
?he reader is apt to pass over unnoticed the
more recondite beauties jf the poem, its
bursts of musical cxpressiou, its subtle
philosophic analysis, its pathetic insight
into the great poet's nature, its dramatic
iruth and power as deduced from what we
?now of the character and history of LU?
CRETIUS. To this last feature of the poem
?ve can hardly do justic? in ii short notice
.ike the present, but all who are familiar
Kith the workings of LUCRETIUS' mind, as
lisplayed in his famous poem "De Herum
Satura," will reccguize the wonderful skill
vith which Mr. TENNYSON has seized upon
ind epitomized the doubts and perplexities,
he pathetic gropiugs alter a truth which
vas hid from the seeker's eyes amid the
?onfusions of contemporary systems, all of
?vhich have made LrcRETica one of the most
utractive names in Loman literature.
The poem is fol! of those felicities of ex?
pression in which the Laureate never fails,
?ven when his other accustomed merits are
?bscured. Some passages there are which
will rauk iu melody and descriptive beauty
with his best efforts. The opening of Lu
:rtr.Tirs' soliloquy is vcr;* fine :
Storm in the night ! for thrice I heard the rain
Boshing, andoneo the dash of a thunderbolt
Methought I never saw so tierce a fork
Struck out the streaming mountain-side and
A. riotous confluence of water-courses
Blanching and billowing in a hollow of it.
No one but Mr. TENNYSON could have
written the following passage :
-the sun ***
**** King of the East although he seem, and
With song and dame a:id fragrance, slowly lifts I
Hi? goldea fee: on those impnrplcd stairs
That climb into the wmdy hall?'of heaven. !
And here he glances on r.ti eye new-born,
And gets for greeting but a wail of pain;
And here bc stay.-* upon a freezing orb
i'nat fain would'gtze upon him to the last;
Anil here upon a yellow eyelid fallen
And closed by those who moorna friend iu vain,
Not thankful that !.is troubles are uo more.
But it is impossible to multiply isola?
tions, and as we published the whole poem
yesterday o ir readers can supply them for
themselves. "Lucretius" has fewer of those 1
verbal ambiguities th.m generally disfigure
the Laureate's poems, and if it does not
?together satisfy those who are jealous /or
ais fame, it will not, at all events, afford
nuch of a handle to the critics who% are
ealous of it. It is perhaps unreasonable
o expect Mr. TENNYSON to surpass the un
tpproached perfection of "Onone" and
'Guinevere." V?'hen a living poet reaches
o lofty a height we must be thankful for
tuyihing which, io! positive retrogression. ?
