A DEAD LOSS TO THU MISSIONARY FUND.
Tbree hundred long-faced, sanctimonious,
humble followers of tho JLord, yesterday,
called upon President Grant, to congratu?
late him. Grant said, "Thank you." Tho
conversation then turned on shaking hands.
Grant said to shako hands with all the par?
sons in tho United States would bo tire?
some. All the clergymen then smiled, and
the interview ended.
It is interesting to make an estimate of
how much loss this has been to the mission?
ary fund, for instance:
Three hundred boiled shirts. 880 00
Boot blacking. 30 00
Fare from Baltimore to Washing?
ton, exclusive of dead-heads.... 100 00
Hotel bills, exclusive of quartering
on friends.1,000 00
Odds and ends. 150 00
Return to Baltimore. 400 0'J
Woar and tear in running around
to tell people what they had seen. 200 00
LOBS of time. 1 50
Being of a philanthropic turn of mind,
it is painful to ns to contemplate tho ex?
penditure of $2,000 aud over for such a
purpose when thero aro sc? many poor
heathens suffering for tho lack of Bibles
and Gospel teachings. Just think of tho
number of pennies it will require to replace
this from tho poor Sunday school boys who
will be asked to contribute something for
missionary purposes overy Sunday.

THE DANGER OF TUE STREETS.-In ono
evening three persons were run over and
killed by :ho street oars in Now York and in
Brooklyn. Two were killed by horse cars,
and one by a dummy. So that steam in tho
streets is clearly not worso than horses. In
Brooklyn, tho car ran over a boy, cut him
in two, and went on.
The fact that Gen. Grant carried with him
into Hie White House his persona] staff, is
complained of as a stride of military power,
having no preeedont in the history of tho
country; but, as if this were not sufficiently
startling, Gen. Sherman has eclipsed it in
? the issuance of his order assuming command
j of the armies of tho United States. Ho
j therein announces his staff to embrace thc
! head of every bureau attached to the War
I Department: The Adjutant-General, ItiBpec
' tor-General, Quartermaster-General, Com
missary-Geueral, Paymaster-General. Chief
of Engineers, Chief of Ordnance, and Judge
Advocate-Genernl, all of whom, heretofore
subordinates of tho Secretary of War, a civil
officer, are thus swallowed np into tho mili?
tary by being declared staff officers of tho
General Commanding tho army. This anxi?
ety on tho part of tho now Administration
to intensify the military power, followed up
as it has been by tho appointment of only
personal adherents to important offices,
smacks so much of European l'usage, as to
give the moro timid Republicans grounds
for the betrayal of a little nervousness,
which correspondents unite in saying is so
cretly whispered t hrough the political under?
current which surges around tho Capitol.

ARCTIC EXPLORATION.-Dr. I. I. Hayes
lately delivered, in New York, an interest?
ing address on Arctic explorations. Thc
lecturer notieed the course of Franklin's,
McClure's and Kauo'a explorations on the
maps, aud explained wherein ho had devi?
ated from their course until he reached
Cape Union. 100 miles North-west of the
limit of Dr. Kauo's expedition, and whence
ho (Dr. Hayes,) within ?50 miles of tho
North Pole, gazed in admiration on the
open sea which surrounds it. Ho then de?
scribed, with much effect, his approach to
Greenland-the people, their dwellings and
habits of life; their island iceberg*, rising
300 feet above the level of tho sea, ana
buried seven times that depth beneath its
surface, three miles in circumference, and
300,000,000 tons in weight; enough, he said,
if made marketable in tho city of New York,
to pay off the national debt; the /cords or
bays, thirty milesiu depth and ton in width,
in which these icebergs ure formed by the
thawed snows of the high interior until,
breaking from the laud by their own weight,
they float on in imperious grandeur, uutil
melted away in their journey to tho tropics.
Other Arctio expeditions are now fittingout
in England and Germany, and we may yet
hear more of this open Polar Sea.
OFFICERS RETIRED.-Among the fiel 1 of?
ficers retired by tho recent order consolidat?
ing regiments, are: Cols. S. P. Heiutzelmau,
Daniel Butterfield, Gordon Granger, John
J. Reynolds, Daniel E. Sickles, Wagei
Swayue-all lately aciing as brigadier ol

Lieutenant-Colonels Adam J. Slemner, (ol

Maloney, Frederick T. Dent, (a brothor-in
law of tho President,) George A. Andrew,
and others. Several of these latter havt
also ranked as brigadier or major-geuerali
of volunteers. A list of about twenty ma?
jors aro also retired, among whom aro Maj,
Thomas YV. Sweeny, tho famous Fenian
Seveu hundred and sixty-four officers of al

Two Germans had a very peculiar case iu
Court, at New York, last week. Uetweei
thom they had invented a whale as large a:
life, which they exhibited to the public as;
veritable livo one, at so much admittance
per head, four assistants being placed insidi
lo work tho monster. The deception wa:
complete, but at the conclusion of a per
formalice, some spies in tho audience waitei
hehiud, and observed tho four Jonah
emerge from tho vhalo's belly, whereupoi
they attacked them, and cut the whale t(
pieces. The suit was brought by tho manu
facturer of the whale to compel tho ownc
to pay for him, which tho Court decided hi
A MIXKD DINKER,-A dinner, called ;
press dinner, was given at Delmonico's, ii
New York, on Saturday night, at whicl
ladies and gent lemen sat down and ate, am
drank, and toasted, and spoke, until 1
o'clock at night. Tho women paid fo
their own dinners, and did their share c
tho talk. There was no smoking, but ai
immense amount of puffing-mutual ail
miration. Tho ladies wero of tho litorar
ami strong-minded sort, and tho gentleme
wero artists of the Bohemian order, allow
ing nothing to go unappropriated, an
making tho most ot the situation.
FIVE MURDERED MEN FOUND.-The bodi?.
of thc five men that wero taken from th
Kinston jail and murdered by a mob, som
weeks ago, have been found. Two wei
seen fioatiu.,* down tho river, a few da}
ago, and wero picked up and buried; au
since that timo thc other three havo bee

THE SEEDS OF SICKNESS-Baron Mun?
chausen tolls ii Htory of a post-boy's born, which
had a hnmbcr of wicked tunos blown into it ono
frosty night, but made no response. Neverthe?
less, when it wat hung before a hoi Gre, tho tunes,
which had been frozen in, thawed out, to the -
amazement of all present. Just HO tho human i
sybtem, subjected to injurious influences during
the winter, sometimes give no token of tho effect
they have produced upon it, until the moist at?
mosphere of spring developes their fruits. Many
spring diseases aro the result of winter impru?
dences, anil great and especial care should be
taken of the system in tho cold season, so that it
may bo in a sound and vigorous condition when
thc malarious fogs of March and April make their
appearance. To this end, strengthen tho stomach
and the general organization at this season with
HOSTETTEft'S BITTERS. Tako this pleasant
vegetable antidoto in advance of tho uprising of
the mephitio mists and vapors, which produce
chilla and fever, and other miasmatic diseases.
Remember that it is a preventive medicine-as
powerful to protect aa to restore. Tho stomach is
apt to be overtaxed at this timo of tho year. It is ?
H, period devoted to dinner and supper parties,
and luxurious living generally. Feasting and late
hours weaken the digestive organs and disorder
the liver. The effect of tho Bitters is to invigorate
the one and regulate the other. There is no
month in the twelvo wbon a tonic and alterativo is
more generally needed than in this, and there is
no preparation of that nature so thoroughly salu?
brious, so bracing, auden entirely free from nndue
exciting properties, as thia celebrated vegetable
