prosperity in Texas.
-Sea island cotton is being grown extensively
i n Texas.
-There arc twenty thousand tenement houses
in Now York, occupied by seven hundred thous?
-Northerners are arriving in Florida In large
numbers, and many have purchased land and
gone to work.
-One of the Boston street cars has cords attach?
ed to the bells, and running along each sido of
the car, just above the heads of the passeugers, se
that any one can easily ring the bell without ris?
-The Cincinnati Catholic Telegraph states that
an effort will be made at the (Ecumenical Council
to issue a decree prohibiting any music but plain
chant in thc services of that church. The Tele?
graph opposes any change.
-A boy in San Francisco recently sat down on
a leaky can of nitro-glycerine, contrary to his
mother's express orders. The lady placed the
. youngster on her knee for the purpose of spank
. lng him, but at thc first blow a frightful explo?
sion took place, whereby thc woman, her ill-rated
son, and her house were shattered to atoms.
-A young lady of Wheeling who had been wo
' fully fooled by a young man of the same place,
under promise of marriage.caned on him Thursday
to. fulfil his vows, and as he refused she shot him, i
- and surrendered herself to the authorities. The
gay deceiver was to have married another girl in
a few days.
-Great excitement recently prevailed in Wa?
bash, Ind., ovor the enforcement of the Sunday
law. Men, women and children were indicted for
fishing, sewing and blacking boots on that day.
About one hundred indictments were returned
into court against the best citizens of the town,
.including several ladles.
-The British Cabinet have nearly agreed, lt ls
said, to settle the Irish land grievance by a mea?
sure which will omit the Irish demand for fixity
?of tenure and Mr. Bright's scheme of peasant
proprietorship. We hear that they will attempt
mainly to guarantee leasehold and adjustment of
the relations between landlord and tenant by
means of the courts.
-It is announced that the Democrats of Cham?
paign County, Ohio, arc running Harry Ford, a
colored man, for State senator from that district.
The tickets have printed upon them the aphorism
that "If he ls white enough to vote, he ls white
?enough to be voted for." It happens that the
district ls very strongly Republican, which fact is
the only thiug calculated to throw suspicion upon
the earnestness of the nominating party.
-Mr. Benjamin Baker, of Key West, Florida,
has sold bis crop of pineapples this year for near?
ly seven thousand dollars. The crop was gather?
ed from less than an acre and & half of ground.

a New York boarding-house, and last week ex?
hausted nearly all bis means, so that he no longer
paid Tor food, but lodging only. He paid his last
.quarter on Christmas night, when thc woman
told him he must go, but he was unable to move.
Another lad pitied him and paid for Sunday night.
Thc woman, thinking he would die, carried him
?ut In the street, where he was found by a ueigh
.*?or, who conveyed him to the Five Points House
. of Industry. He was unable to stand, being rain t
.::rrux hunger, as he had eaten nothing since Fri?
day morning, and during Christmas day he was
suffering the agony of starvation, without a soul
to minister to him in that city of wealth and
-The Prussian needle-gun, it is said, has a for?
midable rival In the form of a zundnwssergexcehr,
or knife-gun, the new breech-loader invented by
Herr Mayhorer, or Kauscher, East Prussia. At a
recent trial in Konigsburg, twenty-live rounds,
with full cartridge, are said to have been fired off
per minute. The missile penetrates at a distan' ;
of two thousand yards. The piece carries with
xreat precision, and has the great advantage of
oft* a minimum of smoke. The invention extends
. Sothe cartridge as well as to thc gun. The in
ventor had repeated his offer to sell his patent to
.the Prussian government, but it has not yet been
-accepted. He has spent his whole fortune or
twenty-five thousand dollars, in the production
or the arm, and threatens to go to Austria or
France if Prussia does not give him an answer
-The memorial of certain residents in British
- Columbia, briefly referred to in yesterday's NEWS,
was presented to the President by Mr. Vincent
. CoUyer. lt purports to be signed by property
holders and business men in Victoria, many of
-Mern British subjects, and ls to bc rollo wed qy
another bearing the slguatures of residents of
other British Columbian towns, who, lt ls said,
desire thc transrer or that province to thc United
Stales. The President replied verbally that he
had read it with interest, and had sent it to thc
Secretary of State. The memorialists, while pro?
fessing loyalty and attachment to the Queen, lu
.view of the proposed severance from the mother
country, are constrained by duty to themselves
and their families to seek such political and com?
mercial connectionsaswill insure future prosperi
ty. They set forth the disadvantages under which
they labor, and view with alarm thc intention to
confederate them with the Dominion of Canada,
for thc reason that it can afford them neither pro?
tection, a market, nor population-their great
want-nor can lt satisfy any sentiment of loyalty
or devotion, and that their interests are opposed,
and the Canadian tariff would ruin Columbia;
and, on the other hand, they detail the advan

-A new steam plough, recently invented lu
anchester, which has attracted great attention
among the farmers in that region, is described
as follows: "This steam plough is an ordinary
double cy lintier steam engine and boiler, mounted
on two main wheels, Ave feet in diameter, or
eight Inches in tread-two smaller ones being
placed in iront for guiding-and weighing alto?
gether about two tons. The distinguishing feature
l?es ia thc main or driving wheels. The rim of
oath wheel ls perforated iu twelve equi distant
places, and through the apertures twelve spoon
shaped "anchors," each seven inches long by five
inches wide, arc made to operate in thc following
way: As the wheels rovolvc, thc anchors are
made to protrude from them and enter the
earth to any desired depth, withdrawing as they
pass under the centres of thc wheels, and thus,
it is asserted," obviating all back strains, and its
consequent waste or power. Tho hohl taken on
the ground by the anchors is reported to beso
meat as to withstand almost any strain; and in
case they meet with an obstruction through
which they cannot penetrate, the springs which
hold thc cams and levers in position recoil to
allow Hiern to withdraw into thc whoels until thc
resisting object has ticen passed over."
Tlic Irish Qucstiou.
A? a grand scheme of pacification, the bill
to disestablish the Irish Church is an titter
failure. There may have been a faint sem?
blance of gratitude, but this was short lived,
and Ireland is now more restive and more
resolute than it was a year ago.
The Catholic clergy condemn Fenianism,
and all that they get for their pains is cen?
sure and dislike. Cardinal Cullen himself
is assiduously and bitterly denounced by thug
Fenian press. And a new element of disor?
der is added to the many that previously ex?
isted. Orangei?mi has split up into two fac?
tions, and what is known a3 Democratic
Orangcism is becoming the bosom friend o^
Fenianism. These Orangemen are working
assiduously for a repeal of the union-per?
haps only that they may then have a free
light with their Catholic fellow-countrymen.
Their representatives talk the tallest possible
language. They rejoice in the election of
Rossa and long to see Luby returned. They
are not ready for a fight just yet, but they
intimate that they hate England like poison,
and ?viii bc ready some day to do somebody
All that England has gained so far by her
vaunted liberality, is the alienation of the
Irish Protestants of the North, while the low?
er classes firmly behove that any concession
may be wrung from the government, by suf?
ficient violence. At the same time the pro?
tracted discussion of the question of Tenant
Rights, and the pledge of the government
that they will introduce a measure for the
protection of the tenant-farmers, have filled
the Irish with hopes that will not be fulfilled
as long as England makes the laws that gov?
ern the Emerald Isle.
"We have no idea that either church bills
or laud bills will produce any marked effect
in pacifying Ireland. This pacification, if it
comes at all, must be the result of long years
of liberality and justice. England may walk
steadily in the broad path of equity and right,
hoping that time will be her vindication and
reward. But thc trish people do not trust
the English Government. They have been
deceived so often, that they scout Hie smooth
,.words of the alien and stranger. If they
stood alone, if there were none to help them,
they might grow uneasy; they might aban?
don hop^and have, faith at last, in the honesty
of their ancient foe. As it is, however, mil?
lions of Irish hearts in the crowded cities of
tho Eastern States, in the mellow fields of
the South and in the prairies of the West,
throb in unison with the hearts of Irisnmen
"at home." This is the strength of Fenian?
ism, and, as long as it endures, nothing will
content the friends of Ireland but actual in?
dependence. The lips which demand a Free
South, demand a Free Ireland. Without the
moral aid and material help of America, an
Irish Republic must continue to be a dream
of the future. But the Irish Democracy in
the United States wield a tremendous power,
and the time may come when the battle-cry
at the hustings will be, not universal suff?
rage, or negro reconstruction, but Irish inde?
TUE Saturday Review has but a poor opin?
ion of General Grant as a political economist
in an article upon the message, we find this
striking passage: * 'In commercial policy, the
"President, in full accordance with the Repub?
lican party, adheres to the narrowest doet
.'rines of iso lation and protection. He anli
"cipates with complacency that the spread of
"American manufactures, under the encour?
agement which they receive, will cause a
"diminution of imports; and, with amusing
"ignorance, he affirms that the restoration of
"trade with Canada could by no possibility
"benefit any citizen of the United States, ex
"cept a few actually engaged in the trade.
"The head of the greatest of democracies
"has never heard of consumers as interested
"in the abundance and cheapness of com
"modities. When the President says that
"no American citizen could profit by the in?
troduction of Canadian timber, he means
"that no grower of American timber would
"obtain an addditional price for his goods.
"The greater cheapness of houses, of ships,
"of railway carriages, and of half the articles
^necessary for comfort and convenience,
"has not occurred to the President's mind as
"a possible advantage. Iiis training has
"probably not accustomed him to the con?
sideration of economical questions, but Me
"will soon find it impossible to 7-esist the
"clamors of producers who, desiring pro~
"tectionfor their -wares, demand free trade
"in the material of their industry. In fair
"ncs3 to foreigners, and in sound economy,
"America is the most backward of nations,
"but it is also rapidly becoming the weal?
thiest and the strongest. Unlimited la?:d
"is more conducive to prosperity than the
"soundest commercial policy."
Tlie Cuban Fiasco.
There seems to be no reason to doubt that
the intelligence from Havana of the final col?
lapse of the Cubau revolutiou is substantial?
ly correct. Ever since the heats of the sum?
mer failed to give the insurgents that com?
plete mastery over the Spaniards which had
boen so coufideutly predicted, the strength
of the rebellion has been steadily on the
wane; and for many months past something
more substantial in the way of sympathy
than mere recoguitiou, would have been'
needed from the the United States to save
the Cubau cause. The people of the South
will watch with eager interest the fate of
General Jordan aud of the young Ameri?
cans-too many of them Confederates-who
foolishly embarked with him in his Quixotic
IK an article on the subject of cotton plant?
ing on the sea is:ands, written by the Hon.
John W. R. Pope, and printed in TUB NEWS,
there was a typographical error which it is
important to correct. Mr. Pope did not say I
that in his experiment ten pounds of fertili- J
zers was applied to the acre. What he did say
was that he applied three hundred and thirty
pounds of Georgia fertilizer^ worth $10, to
each acre, and that fhe amount of raw cot?
ton made on the fertilized land was double
the quantity on other land in the same field,
which was better land and well cultivated,
but unmanurcd. The experimental field
made four hundred and thirty pounds seed
cotton to the acre, and the unmanurcd field,
from a more prolific seed, made only two
hundred and ten pounds, worth about half
a3 much in the market.
THE PURSUIT OF HOLINESS : A sequei to
^Thoughts on Personal Religion;*' intended
to carry tho reader somewhat further on?
ward in the spiritual life. Hy Edward Merrick
Goulburn, D. I*., Dean ol' Norwich. New
York: D. Appleton & Co.
Ur. Goulburn has won a high reputation
as a popular theologian and devotional di
rector. He is earnest, tender and thought
fui, a divine of liberal culture and fertile
fancy. While deeply imbued with the spirit
of Francis of Sales, he is not thc less a man
of thc Nineteenth Century. He discusses
ethical themes in their relation to thc quos
tionings and the uccds of the present day,
The mind as well aa the heart is quickened
by converse with a fresh, vigorous writer
who eschews all commonplace in dealing
with familiar subjects, speaking as a Chris?
tian to Christians, and as a man to men.
His approach is straightforward, his thought
clear, his style redundant and pellucid. The
circulation of this volume will do good, not?
withstanding some follies about the sacra?
ments iato which he has been betrayed.

ed by Onida, author of Tricotrin, Ac. Phila?

Holmes' Book House.
The "tricksy spirit," this time, is only an
aristocratic poodle,who lives in both hovel and
palace, and if equally at home in the lap of
beauty or the basket of the dog fancier. O'
course "Puck" laughs and grows fat over
thc frailties of poor human nuture, and it
may bc hinted that he seo fis and snarls with
the glee of a possessed puppy. The book ia,
indeed, an apotheosis of dogs and the demi
monde, its centre figure being a masterpiece
of cold-blooded iniquity. But Puck is tin
doabtedly pungent and clever, and as it
^treads on forbidden ground, rewards vice
and makes virtue miserable, it will, because
of its glaring faults, be widely and greedily
read. Trice $2.
TnE Nation says very frankly, that the
Southern senators opposed the confirmation
of Judge Hoar beca-se they wanted "not a
"wise judge, nor a learned judge, but a judge
"of their own kind." And of the adventur?
ers who now misrepresent the South in the
Senate, the Nation says: "The truth must
"be told, that, beneficial os reconstruction
"has been in other respects, the class of
"Southern politicians whom it has brought
"to the surface, and into whose hands it has
"given the reins of government, are as poor
"a race of men os ever manipulated caucuses
"or ?ailed conventions. The 'shriek of lo?
cality' coming from these men is, indeed,
"one of the most amusing that was ever
"shrieked in the political world, because they
"owe their own seats to a party which has
"attained power by disregarding every claim
"of the sort."
