BUTTER. -Notwithstanding that tho
riudorpest has more than decimated
the cows of England, butter and
cheese are probably cheaper there at
this time than in the United States.
Cotenvporaneonsly with the appear?
ance of the cattle plague, smart Yan?
kees in this country bought up and
shipped immense quantities of cheese
ana batter to London ami Liverpool.
Handsome profits were realized on
the first shipments, which induced
other and heavier supplies to be sent
over. This was kept up until the
English market was glutted. The
news by every succeeding steamer
now is that butter is "duller.*' lu
fact, it is a drug in tho market. The
effect in this country of these heavy
shipments abroad has been to put up
fifty per cent, and moro the price of
butter, and we fear there will be no
material decline until mid-summer or
Except in time of war, Northern
butter ?ns always regulated the price
of country butter in the Richmond
market, the latter being generally
held at from ten to li ft cen cents
higher. Six months ago the best
Northern butter could be bought here
for thirty cents. It is now worth
sixty. Fresh country butter then
worth from forty to fifty cents was
yesterday sold at eighty cents. This
is the highest price we recollect
butter ever to havo been sold at in
this market. During the period of
greatest dearth during the war the
highest point touched was $2(> a
pound, which, according to the then
value of Confederate money, was
equal to about thirty-five cents in
gold, and forty-five cents iu the pre?
sent currency.-RicJimand Times.
TEXAS.-The New Orleans Times,
of the 12th inst, says Col. J. Mit?
chell, formerly of Boonville, Mo.,
has settled in Houston, Texas. The
colonel has traveled extensiY-ely over
Texas during the last few months,
and he gives the most cheering ac?
counts concerning that State ami its
people! He says that the people
have stopped croaking, and both old
and young ha\*e gone to work with a
hearty good will ; that the crops were
never more promising; that money is
more plenty throughout the State
than ever before; that real estate,
especially in the interior, has nearly
or quite doubled in price since the
war; that he hits found more shrewd?
ness and enterprise there than he
ever before met with;that the impor?
tance of completing tho New Orleans
ami Texas Railroad cannot be over?
estimated by the people of Texas ami
New Orleans, etc. "Tho colonel is
well posted, anti his opinions are
worthy of being placed on record.
THE RIOHTS OP MARRIED WOMEN.
The New York Supreme Court has
just decided an important case under
their law, rn which a married woman,
in business conducted by herself, had
amassed the means of furnishing her
house. In an action for debt against
her husband by a third party, the
furniture Yvas seized and a part of it
sold. She claimed damages, and the
full value of the furniture sohl, with
interest, was awarded her. Tho de?
cision of the court was in effect that
the wife's property, earned by her?
self, was not liable lor the husband's
There were formerly 700 churches
in Moscow, but the Emperor Nicho?

by his order torn down.
