A WITTY LITTLF. SPEECH FROM MR.
JOHNSON', OF CALIFORNIA-A RADICAL,
SKINNED.-In tho House, on Friday,
Mr. Johnson, rising to ii personal ex?
planation, referred to a remark mudo
by Mr. Pile, in objeeting, some
weoeka ago, to a resolution offered
by him iu regard to tho citizenship
of the Chinese in California-tho
objectiounble expression being that
the resolution wan ti burlesque ou
commou sense-and said that ho had
not heard the expression at tho time,
or ho should hnvo repelled it. In
reference to tho gentleman's ability
to set himself up us a censor, he had
only to say that that gentleman
ought to be courteous to members.
He know nothing of his qualifications
for the high office he hud assumed,
but he did know, by looking at the
"Congressional Directory," that that
gentleman was a minister of the gos?
pel and a brigadier-general-a sur
pliced hero and a fighting priest.
(Laughter. J He said this to the gen?
tleman's houor, because ho admired
his buttons and reverenced his cloth.
[Laughter.] The Judiciary Com?
mittee, to which tho resolution was
to be referred, had seen no danger
lurking iu it. But it was not tho
first, timo that the eyes of wisdom had
been closed to threatening danger.
He recollected, in sacred history,
that when tho augei of the Lord stood
in the way of Balaam with his Haming
Bword, turning and threatening right
and left, Bilinara had no eyes to sec;
"Hut the poor ass saw it, and blurted
out vehemently, j Laughter.]
THE SUGAR PRODUCT.-A recent
' speech of Hon. Mr. Barnes, of New
York, in the House of Representa?
tives, gives some statistics of South?
ern crops, from which it appears that
the silgar crop of Louisiana, which
in 1860, was 449,000 hogsheads, was
in 18ti6 only 3U.0?0, and at the pre?
sent time there aro iu that whole sec?
tion but 317 sugar plantations. In
the English Market Produce Redete,
there is published a full roview of the
sugar trado of tho world for tho last
your, from which it appears that the
United States and Great Britain aro
much tho largest consumers of sugar,
using 1,420,000 tons annually, or say
about forty-one pouuds for euch in?
habitant of those countries. Thc
total annual consumption of France,
Spain, Italy, Belgium and Switzer?
land, is no?.OOO tons. Thc total an?
nual consumption of Germany is
2C3.O00 tons. Russia, Poland, Tur?
key and Greeco consumo only 1?5,
000 ton?, or MO pounds per hoad. It
is thought that, with the advance, of
nations in civilization and wealth,
there is every prospect of a continued
i increase iu tho uso of this product,
as tho sonn;es of supply nro HO nu?
merous and tho crop so remunerative.
lt is to be regretted that, at a period
wiitin tho.cultivation ought to bo ex?
tended in our country to meet the in?
creasing demand, this, like all our
other lending interests, is in such a
I Queen Victoria is enid to have
! cleured ?10,000 by the publication of
j her book of mild twaddle about
"dearest Albert." His death is quite
lucrative to his bereaved relict. A
London correspondent says they do
say that Her Majesty is already worth
about ?-1,000,000. "A wretched
1 idiot named Neill or O'Neill (I forget
j which) left her ?500,000 in rfne lump
I some years ago, not one penny of

most thrifty Majesty ever touched."
Renewed persecutions of thu Jews
aro reported in Moldavia. Their
houses aro burned or torn down, their
stores sucked, and their persons hor?
ribly maltreated. In somo cases
they have been obliged to escape
secretly to save eveu their lives. It
is said that the authorities did not
even attempt to prevent these out?
rages. All who attempted to defend
tho Jews were treated in the same

iiKAii I SI MINI)-When disease has
undermined tho health, and tho physical
system IIBH become prostrated, a stimu?
lant that will not only strengthen, but re?
move tho caiipo, should bo immediately
resorted to. Mental distress is also a
fruitful source of the breaking down of tho
constitntion, and the ravages of tliiB enemy
to health are truly alarming. For all Puch
maladies HOSTETTEP.'S STOMACH BIT?
TERS have been found unsurpaaaed. By
acting directly upon tho digestivo organs,
they remove tho heavy, disagreeable feel?
ing after eating, SJ often complained of by
persona of a dolicato temperament. AH
Hoon as digestion is restored, tho patient

Thousands of perseus certify that it may
bo relied on iu all cases of weakness or

habits. Tho generality of Ritters aie so

objectionable to a weak stomach. Thia ia
not tho case with Hoatctter's Bitters,
which will bo found mild and extremely
pleasant. Balaamio plants, barks and

Ita basis is tho only puro stimulant which
! baa ever been produced containing no fusil

analyzed the Bitters, and pronounce them
