LONDON, Jaioe 29. - The Star, com?
menting on the reported departure of
Ryan's expedition for Oohs, brings the
circumstance to bear upon the claims
now pending between the United States
and Great Britain. It says: "We are
interested in the conduct of the United
States Government in this matter.
America now stands iu relation to Coba
exaotly as England did in relation to the
Southern Confederacy. Uer neutrality
laws must be thoroughly and effectively
enforced, or she will lose the hold she hos
gained on public opinion, which insures
a fair consideration of Alabama claims.
The Alabama escaped unarmed, with on
ordinary merchantman's crew on board,
and we are justly held to hnve incurred
a high degree of responsibility for the
consequences. The departure of a party
of 800 men from Now York, as far as can
be judged from present accounts, ap?
pears to be on infraction of tho neutral?
ity laws just as flagrant ns the escape of
the Alabama, and one which could have
been much more easily prevented."
DUBLIN, Jone 29.-At the meeting held
last night to urge upon Government the
release of the Fenian prisoners, 4,000
ficoplo wen present. Butt, a prominent
awyer, said the motto of nil true Irish?
men ought to be, "Bide your time; put
your trust in God, aud keep your pow?
der dry." If the British Goverument
persisted in keeping these men incar?
cerated, all its professions of conciliation
would be useless. Williams, of Dungar?
von, declared the Feniaa prisoners
would not accept mercy. They demand?
ed justioe from ministers. If the latter
refused it, let blood be apon their own
heads. He would not, however, advo?
cate a resort to the sword, for that doc?
trine was out of time.

-unmarked, unhonored and unknown.
They wore onr countrymen-of our

FRANCE.-The New York Herald be?
lieves France is on the eve of a crisis, and
Napoleon in danger. It thinks Napoleon's
idea of "reconciling strong1 power with
sincerely liberal institutions" is incom?

Emperor in tho second elections, the re?
sults of which aro now known to ns, but
does not think that the men elected on
this second test of French eeutiincnt,
make his position moro secure than it
was before. True, the Liberal mn jori ty
is somewhat reduced, but still tbs Libe?
rals have eighty members. It says:
Tho Empire began with u majority of
7,000,000 of votes; it has now barely
800,000 moro than tho opposition; and
wheu tho Government machinery for
colliding ami securing votes is taken
into account, tbe 800,000 may bo taken
at a discount.

A check or suspension in tbe growth,
of tv pig at airy time in its life is a heavy
rosa to the owoor. Nothing ia better in
summer for young pigs than rich, undi?
luted sour milk, fed regularly in uniform
quantities, with added corn or barley
meal, to make up any deficiency. Clo?
ver out and thrown into the neat and
clean pen, in addition to the milk and
meal, is excellent, but hogs that run over
a large clover field will not fatten or
grow so fast.
Experience is strongly in favor of good
and thorough cultivation of the Boil, es?
pecially for the first years of orchards.
Good treatment of this kind bas afforded
large, high-flavored fruit; while neglect?
ed orchards, or those io grass, give
small, scabby, and poor crops. Wo do
not recommend excessive manuring, but
clean mellow culture, particularly during
the earlier part of the season, with a soil
of fair fertility and with a good natural
or artificial drainage.
There aro many varieties of tho whito
bean, mostly well adapted to field cul?
ture. If the seed boons now used wero
raised last year, they will bo fresh, good,
and will germinate well; if more than
two years old, it would bo better to uso
them for some other purpose. The
ground should bo well prepared, well
harrowed, clear of weeds aud mellow.
The seed is to be planted like corn, an
inch or two in depth, but two or three
times as thick-say twico as thick as
Northern norn, and throe times as thick
as Southern. If planted with a drill or
corn planter, they may bo in rows three
feot apart, and about three inches apart
in the row; if in bills, tho hills may be
fifteen or twenty inches apart in tho row.
If planted by hand, they ate dropped
and covered ns commou corn, and buried
to tho sarao depth. After the crop is up,
it should be kept clean and well culti?
vated, taking care not to do the work
when the leaves aro wet with dew or rain,
avoiding throwing earth or dust ou the
leaves, aud bruising or twisting the
plants. Beaus are usually planted about
lue samo time us corn, but as they ripen
in much less time, they have succeeded
when put in as lato as mid-summer,
when the soil is moist enough to sprout
them. The yield is variable-sometimes
as high as forty bushels per acre, but
more commonly fifteen or twenty, while
badly managed crops have not given five

The modes of pucking eggs are various,
but nil iuclude tho all-essential requisite
of placing and keeping the eggs on end
-the smaller cud down commonly pre?
ferred. Keeping them cool and at a uni?
form temperature is the next important
requisite. Packing them in salt main?
tains them in position, and in a dry cellar
preserves coolness. Charcoal powder is
also good for packing, but more difficult
to obtain in largo quantities. Silted
ashes would probably do well. Saw-dust
is liable to beat, unless previously baked
or well dried. Fine chaff would bo con?
venient. Some prefer first to immerse
the eggs in boiling water for a minute,
to cook and thicken tho exterior; others
grease them all over with melted mutton
suet before packing.
