was a mor? unsatisfactory condition of ihe f
cane business known in consideration of th*,
excellent prospects at one time shown, when
one, hundred and forty-five thousand hogs?

-It ls said that washerwomen in Washing?

picious customer that lt requires from'six tb
ten days to properly wash and Iron his clothes.
The work ls usually accomplished on the Ant
or second day, and then the lady of the wash?
tub hires ont io others euch garments as they
may seiec: for a day's or night's wearing.
This system of hiring ls said to be carried on
can earn from five to six dollars a week extra
In tills way.

who is not charged with any crime, should at

-A woman preacher bas created a great j
sensation In Ihe Brooklyn Presbytery. Sae is j
a member of the Society of Friends, ls a
mafd?n. lady, and her name is Sarah F. Smiley,
a native or Philadelphia, aged about thirty
years. She started out as a preacher about
foua-yearg ago, nnder.the auspices ol the Soci?
ety of Friends. In 1809 she visited Great
Brlhria- -and - held meetings in the Orkney
Islands and in Scotland, where' she preached
In the Presbyterian, Methodist and Baptist
Churches. In Brooklyn she has appeared in
Dr.Cuyler's, Presbyterian; Dr. Buddington's,
Congregational:Mr. Meredith's,Meth jdist; and
Mr. Pentecost's, Methodist, Churches. Her ap?
pearance has excited home doubts among the
Presbyterians as to the propriety ot permit?
ting a Woman to teach In their pulpits, and
hence the excitement in the Brooklyn Presby?
-The order in which the muscU-s, lose their
power ls worth knowing. The muscles which\
move the arms and legs usually become re .
laxed before those which maintain the body in
an erect position. In relation to the social
senses;that of sight ls first lost-the eyelids j
forming a barrier between the retina and ex?
ternal world; but Independently of eyelids, If j
they, had been removed by the surgeon,
cou'd not be closed by disease, (his ls still the
first sense whose function is abolished. Some
anima's, as the hare, do not Bhut their eyes i
when asleep; and In case of somnambulism,
the eye3 remain opec, although the sen. , ol'
sight ls temporarily abolished, but their
acuteness is much lessened. Tos e is the first
to disappear, and then smell; hearing follows,
aud touch is the most persistent of the senses.
So, conversely, a person ls most easily awak?
ened by the sense ol touch; next In order by
sound, and then by smell.
-Mr. Charles Reade is in hot water again.
It seems that the "kleptomaniacs" are after
him once more, and fierce ls his wrath thereat.
The chief offender this time ls "George Eliot"
Inhere qw serial. As becomes a gentleman
when dealing with a lady Mr. Beade does not
say the lair novelist "steals," or even that she
"conveys" bis ideas; he asserts, with Barcas,
tlc moderation, thut she "borrow?" them.
This exposition is piloted lu Oncea Week,
and on a first and hasty examination Mr.
Beade's case looks very strong. So many
points of similarity are cited, thPt is to say,
that lt ls hard lo believe them altogether ac?
cidental. But on the other hand, the alle?
gation is so Intrinsically Improbable that we
could only assent to lt on overwhelming evi?
dence. "George Eliot," in the literary and
creative sense, ls rar more fit to be a lender ]
than a borrower, and lt is aim.** incon?
ceivable that a person of her strong brain
should be guilty of the offence attributed to
-Prime Min ster Iwakura and his Japanese
companions arrived at San Francisco about
one day earlier than was anticipated, and the
formal reception was consequently performed
Ina hasty and unsalisfattoiy manner. The;
hospitality subsequently offered, however, has
been amply lavish to atone for that con tre?
te mp?, and the Asiatic visitors are evidently
having a most Jolly time. The greatest curi?
osity prevails among the San Franciscan ladies
and gentlemen to become acquainted with the
members of the embassy, especially the
females thereof. These-number Ave, being
daughters o? high officials, and genuine l'i In?
censes. What ls more to. the purpose, they
are represented os possessing remarkable
beauty and intelligence; and one reporter has
been rendered so ecstatic that be maln>ains
that their loveliness ls absolutely unrivalled.
They dress In a gorgeous yet tasteful manner,
affecting parti-colored silks. The belle of
the beautiful bevy has dark and., languish?
ing eyes, which, we are startled .ito learn,'
"have within them all the light and depth
which one may see in an autumnal sunset."
The faces of the ladies are "not oval, nor yet
are they long." Ravishing smiles dwell per?
ennially on their lips, their complexions are.
faultless, while their minds seem to be as
superfine as their perso ns, and their intelli?
gence is covertly estimated ai fir excelling
that of the average belle Am?ricaine. When
these antipodal maidens reach Vassar, it is
not unreasonable to suppose they will be re?
ceived with awe and admiration, not unmixed
with jealousy. So that before long the mas?
culine youth who pay their surreptitious visits,
at properly regulated intervals, to certain fair
"cousins" at that excellent Institution, will
be apt to desert thc customary Angelina for
the more attractive almond-eyed damsels: and
only a few months will intervene before we
shall have countless poignant poems and ve?
hement valedictories emitted from Celestial
lips, with an accompaniment of sadly-sweet
smiles In the nature of autumnal sunsets.
The Connecticut Democrats?
The State Convention of the Connecticut
Democracy, which met at New Haven on
Tuesday, very clearly feres* idowed the
position which the Democratic party of the
country will occupy in the approaching
Presidential Campaign. The Convention
adopted as the main elements of its plat?
form in regard to national aflairs the same
doctrines recently pat forth by the Liberal
Republicans of Missouri, adding thereto a
strong resolution in favor of the indepen?
dence of Cuba, and others relatlong exclu?
sively to the local affairs of the State!
From this it ia plain that the Democracy
of Connecticut intend to make a vigorous
effort, so far as fundamental principles are
involved, to take the State out of the
bonds of the Grant Republicans at the
April election. In furtherance of this pur?
pose, they have pat in nomination a strong
ticket. . Toe Hon. Richard D. Hubbard,
the candidate for Governor, is the foremost
lawyer of the State. He is a War Demo?
crat, having taken an active part on the
Bide of the Union daring the rebellion ; ls a
Progressive Democrat, and a gentlemen of
the highest'character for honor and integ?
rity. The field will no doubt be strenu?
ously contested; and if the anti-Grant Re?
publicans of the State do their duty, the
close of Governor Jewell's official career is
In his opening speech, Mr. Barr, Presi?
dent of the Convention, advocated a union
of all parties in opposition to Grant, and
referred to the possibility of Mr. Trumbull
being the anti-Grant candid tte for the Presi?
dency in eloquent terms. These sentiments
were greeted by the Convention with tho
Ix consequence of the retirement of Colo?

Per ULAR LIFE OF GENERAL ROBERT EDWARD
LEE. By Jfimlly V. Mason. Dedicated, by per?
mission, to Mrs. Lee. Illustrated by Seven?
teen Original Designs. Baltimore: John
Murphy & Co., No. 182 Baltimore street,
This life of General Lee cannot be accepted
as a standard work; but it ls cordially and
pleasantly written, and throws a flood of
light upon the personal character ot the great
Southern Soldier. Miss Mason traces ihe
genealogy of the Lees of Virginia, describes
their Tamlly seat, briefly sketches the career
of the immediate ancestors of General R. E.
Lee, and gives a highly interesting account of
his school life, his success at West Point, and
his brilliant services in Mexico. The story of
lils mighty deeds in the Confederate War is
chiefly taken from the works of Major Cooke,
Mr. McCabe and Mr. Swinton, but Miss Mason
has been abie lo lend new zest to the narra?
tive by introducing anecdotes and extracts
from private letters, lew of which had pre?
viously been published. Ia describing Gen?
eral Lee's early days, and his conscientious
and able discharge of his arduous duties at
Lexington, Miss Mason ls especially happy.
The volume ls well printed, but the illustra?
tions are caricatures. We may add .that the
book is published for the benefit of the Lee
Memorial Association, of Richmond, Ya.,
which tact, apart fi om its own attractiveness,
must commend it to the Soutbern public.
BLADE-O'-GRASS. By B. L. Farjeon, Author of
Joshua Marvell. New York : Harper &
Brothers, 1872. Charleston: Holmea's Book
Tui? touching story teaches by the example
of the twin sisters-Ruth aod Blade-O'-GraBi
that education, (or the lack of 1' association
and example determine whether the forlorn
child of the streets shall become a social
pariah or a pure and useful member of society.
Besides this, lt shows the temptations of the
starving outcasts, whom we are all too ready
to condemn, and administers a severe rebuke
to them who heedlessly denounce what is
called "indiscriminate charity." It exposes
the canker at the root of modern civilization,
and preaches eloquently upon the one great
text, Man help the poor. And, as a mere
novel, lt ls lull of grace and power. The
blending of humor, sound sense and deep
feeling In the description of the early days ot
the piteous heroine, the eccentricilies of Jim?
my Virtue, the loving weaknesses ot "Noth?
ing Particular," and the practical philanthro?
pic of the Silvers, with the vivid pictures ol
the London by-ways-these make tip a book
Which is absolutely free from cant, and is
healthful and humanizing, while of great in?
trinsic Interest. It ls handsomely Illustrated.

THE: AMERICAN BARO.V. A Novel. By James

With Illustration*. New Yoik: Harper ?fc
Brothers, 1872. Chailestoo: Uolmes's Book
If Mr. DeMille only intended lo write u live- j
ly, mirth-pruvoking novel, he ha? succeeded
admirably; In "The American Baron''there
ls plenty .-of absurdity, but lt ls brim-full of \
hearty muscular fun. Any serions criticism
offthe characters; or of-the plot, would be ont
of^Iace.1 We wish, however, that Mr. DeMllle
would, tor once, draw an American who ls flt
for civilized society. It is a vulgar prejudice,
no doubt, to lasist that valor and worth only
shine the brighter when the happy possessor
ls intelligent and refined, and keeps his hands
olean. But we think that Mr. DeMllle might
avoid making his pet characters-his repre?
sentative Americans-a cross between a Pala?
din and a Yankee Peddler,

MOHAMMED AU AND HIS HOUSE. An Historical
Romance. Bv L: M?htbach. With Illustra?
tions. New York: D. Appleton & Co., 1872.
Charleston: Holmes's Book House.
Miss M?hlbach, in changing the scene of j
one of her innumerable historical novels to
the neighborhood of the Pyramids,, obtains j
more freedom of action for herself, and, be?
fore the Urse chapter is read, enlists In behalf j
of her book all that Interest which, in spite of J
Opera Bouffe at. Alexandria and American
cotton-gins in the delta of the Nile, is still
awakened by the name of the dim (and dirty)
Orient. The romantic career of Mohammed
Ali; "the first free Tlceroy of Egypt," ls a fine
subject, and the reader who is fond of variety
of Incident and picturesqueness of descrip?
tion, coupled with enough historical truth to
give aa air of reality lo the whole, Is not
likely to find his attention flag until the last
page of the book ls turned.

PATTY. A Novel. By Katherine MacQuoid,
Author of Bookstone. New York: Harper
& Brothers, 1672. Charleston: Holmes's Book
More elaboration and a clearer drawing of |
the characters would vastly improve Miss j
MacQuoid'd latest work, but. as lt stands, it is
very charming-one, Indeed, of the pleasant?
est novels of the season. The characters are
not altogether original. As, however, the
book is wholesome in tone, and effective in
treatment, Patty, as a pretty story well told,
is sure to be widely popular.

Two PLUNGES FOR A PEABL. A Novel. By
Mortimer Collins, Author of Marquis and
Merchant. New York: D. Appleton & Co.,
1872. Charleston: Holmes's Book House.
And English critic has kindly said that the
verse of Mr. Collins is better than his prose.
We admit that lt could hardly be worse, If j
"Two Plunges for a Pearl" is to be taken as
a fair specimen of the author's pe wer;. It is
a bald and tawdry story, stuck full of dreary
quotations, and having the sole recommenda?
tion that all the dramatis personae, whose fate
is known, become everlastingly happy. In
style, lt ls stilted and corrupt. Where does
an author expect to go to who allows his hero
to "pervagate" his park, and who speaks of a
short coat as a "succinct Jerkin."
