Ww ix ii Epidemic.
The causes of war are n?>rc dr less *
involved in obscurity, like those of i
epidemic diseases; they sometimes- ?'.
remain.latent "ml smouldering for a
long period, until some chance spark 1
kiudlcs!a conflagration, which spreads ]
swift ruin far beyond tho boundaries 1
of tho country where it first blazed <
forth. That tho mind is liable, like 1
tho body, to epidemics, is shown in
religion, in politics, in monetary
affairs and in fashions. Opinions and
fashions spring up, prevail and sub?
side, like a genuine epidemic. In
politics, the revolutionary agitations,
in tho. latter half of thc eighteenth
century, and the reform movements
in the present century, were epi?
demics. And to the latter, we may
add tho pestilence of war, which so
lately raged four yeai-3 throughout
our own broad country, devastating
the cities and plains of the South.
Tho recent European war was an
epidemic which spread with marvel?
lous rapidity from the shores of the
Baltic to those of the Mediterranean.
Its contagious influence threatened
at one moment to overspread all
Europe; and, suddenly, as it seemed
to subside, after having swept through
Prussia, Italy, Austria, Bavaria,
Saxony, Wurtemburg, llanover and
the little cluster of Northern States,
there is no telling how soon at may
again burst forth with fresh and re?
doubled fury. With thc guns of
Candia booming again on ouu ears,
we listen for Russian cannon that
may roar in a new Crimean campaign.
In thc busy hum of industry in all
the armories and arsenals of France,
in thc universal armament? in pro?
gress throughout Europe-Russia
swelling her ranks by 300,000 recruits,
Prussia organizing for new coi ps,
Austria remodelling and reforming,
all States, large and small, infected
with the mania for "big battalions,"
testing new weapons and discussing
new military systems-in all these
sigus of the times, we see premonitory
symptoms of another epidemic of
war. Insurrections in Spain, . and
last, not least, the Fenian outbreak
in Great Britain, together with dull
rumors of an impending war between
that country and the United States,
aro additional illustrations of war as
epidemic. The millenium which shall
cure it has not yet dawned.
AN OCKAN YACHT RACE.-Tho New
Yorkers go it on a grand figure. Thc
papers state that a good deal of in?
terest is felt in the forth-coming
yacht race across tho Atlantic. Three
yachts-the Fleefcwing, owned by Mr.
Osgood;-the Vesta, by Mr. Lonnard
and the Henrietta, by J. G. Bennett;
Jr.-start from that port for Cowes,
on thc 11th of December, thc one ar?
riving first to be entitled to the sun
of $90,000, which has been staked oi
AxTi-RiruAii MOVEMENT.-A num?
ber of tho - Episcopal clergy in Nev
York aro engaged in a movement t<
modify very materially, if not abo
lish altogether,, the ritual of tha
church. The movement seems to b
co-operativo with the efforts of a simi
lar character in England. The prc
sent ritual undoubtedly needs revi
sion. The morning service is prc
tractcd and heavy. Many obsolet
words are retained, and some tha
arc used now mean precisely opposit
their original meaning.
A bill riassed both branches of th
Mississippi'Legislature restoring a
lands soh'' for taxes of 18G1,1802 an
1SG3, to their owners, provided tho
wcro in 18G1 citizens of the Stat?
and still continuo to be, upon pa;
ment of costs, and any amount <
county tax the State may have pa:
sineo she acquired title. This is
very judicious measure, and if su(
an one is demanded in this State, v
hope tho Legislature will pass i
Whatever can bo legally done for tl
relief of the people should enlist tl
attention and prompt action of tl
ORANGES.-Tho Louisiana Plante,
Banner says: "Oranges now lo
many trees in this Parish, and th?
golden fruit looks tempting to t
passer-by. No fruit tree on earth c
be more beantiftd than the oran
tree, loaded with it? yellow, li
cicna, autumnal crop, hanging up
branches amidst thousands of gloj
leaves of tho richest h nc." Weshoi
LOSSES OF THE UNITED STATES j
FROOFS Dvjxgxo THE WAK.-Tho re
^ort of tho United States Provost
Marshal-Gencrai, which has recently
t>ee? published, contains some enn?
ui;! statistical information, it sccm3
?hat, under the Act of March :*>,
?-,?Ji?4,Ot>5 men were enrolled in thc
"loyal'.' States, exclusive of 1,000,510
then under anns. Tho deserters ar?
rested andreturned to thc army num?
bered 70,520, tho highest ratio of
desertion, per thousand, being in
Connecticut, whereat reached 117.23.
It is, of course, considered probable,
by the Provost Marshal-General, that
nearly all thc deserters -.vere foreign?
ers, and he states that thc great mass
of tho bounty-jumpers were noto?
The casiy?*ies in the entire military
force of the United States, during
the Avar, as shown by tho official
muster-rolls and monthly returns,
include 5.'221 commissioned ofliccrs
and 70, SOS .enlisted- men killed in
action, or died of wounds while in
service; 5,321 commissioned officers
and 182,320 enlisted men who died
from disease or accident; making an
aggregate <>[ 2S0,739 officers and men
of' the army who lost their lives in
Among the negro troops, the deaths
by disease were largely dispropor
tioned to those by the casualties of
war, bein;;- 141.39 per thousand,
against 42.27 per thousand in the
white regulars, while in battle tho
ratio was bat 10.11, against 35.10.
ANOTHER REASON FOE DEFEATTNG
THE AMENDMENT-A JORI:.-In tho
recent Women's Rights Convention
at Albany, Mr. Pillsbury offered the
'Resolved, That the introduction
of lhe word'male,' threo times re?
peated iu the constitutional amend?
ments now pending before the States,
is a gross insult to all womankind
everywhere, and au outrage on the
genius of the nineteenth century; and
on that ground alone, were there no
other reason, we earnestly hope those
amendments will bo repudiated."
This resolution was adopted with
GRAND RAFFLE FOR A PLANTATION.
-Thc great feature of the Louisiana
Agricultural Fair, was the grand rat?
tle for the Cola Spring Plantation,
valued at $40,000. The plantation
contains, 2,400 acres, 1,000 of which
aro cleared, and is situated in tho
finest cotton region of Louisiana.
There is a largo and commodious
dwelling ou tho place, nicely furnish?
ed throughout, with kitchen and all
necessary out-houses. Tho quarters
capable of accommodatingfifty hands,
with the stables, gin house, grist
mill, smoke-house, blacksmith shop,
etc., arc all in splendid repair.
Thc plantation is well stocked in
horses, cattle, hogs etc., and has
corn, hay, fodder, etc., enough for
the next season. The tickets were
fixed at S5.
CHANGE OF TACTICS.-Gen. Forrest
recently addressed the citizens oi
Little Hock, on thc subject of thc
railroad iu course of . construction
from that city to Memphis. Ile is
reported to have humorously said
that lie had changed his policy in
regard to railroads; that ho had de?
voted much atteusion in the past t<^
learing them up, but that he wishet
to devote all his energies hereafter tc
laying them down. Here is an argu
ment l'or practical reconstruction.
We trust it will be favorably receivet
by such papers at thc North as pro
fess to believe that the "rebels" o
Hie South are unwilling to eugagc ir
thc work of reconstruction.

How A YOUNG WOMAS STOW.
ANTAT.OONS.-A young lady by tlie j
ame of Herbert was caught the other j
rening in tho act of stealing pants in j1
ready-made clothing store iu Mon- j
.eal. Her modus operandi was, after .
trryiug tho unmentionables (which
ie made up at home fur the firm) I '
ito the back store, sin would draw on !1
?vo or three pairs, and by tnrniug up j
lie legs so that they could not be j
Ben below* her dress, she would pass

Two young fellows got to bantering
ach other, the other day. Finally
nc of them exclaimed, "Well, there
3 one thing, you can't put your bend
uto an empty barrel." "'Oh, nou?
euse," exclaimed the other, "why
an't I?" "Because," dryly rejoined
no first, "it is impossible to put a
dogshead iuto a barrel."
