THE DKDT STATEMENT.-De Tocque?
ville thought tho mo?t sublimo spectacle
lae eyer witnessed was when ho beheld a
great question ot territorial rightB, that
had nrisou between two States, submit?
ted to the amiable adjudication o? n hnlf
dozen legal gentlemen, ut the city of
Washington, culled tho Supremo Court.
If Do Tocqueville had lived a while
longer, say until tho 2d day of Ootobor,
Anno Domini 1871, be would bavo wit?
nessed something ?till more remarkable
in that same city of Washington, for ho
would bavo soon a single individual ut
tho head of tho United Stato3 Treasury
Department publishing to tho world that
ia a single month of twenty-six secular
days be bad, iu pursuance of a policy
entirely his own, and by the meru force
of his own ideas, wruug from one of tho
most powerful natious on tho fuco of tho
earth tuxes enough to enable bim to dis?
charge of the national indebtedness tho
vast sum of 813,453,020, or rather moro
thau a half million per doy. And the
curious part of the matter would bo, not
that tho Secretary of tho Treasury would
.do this, but that tho whole pooplo, be?
lieving that bis policy was a wrong ono,
because calculated to destroy tho indus?
tries by which they lived, would quietly
permit bim to do it. $13,500,000 on au
unduo debt paid in a single mouth,
every material interest of tho country
suffering from it, and yet no serious pro?
test madel That certainly is a spectacle
not often seen.
QUEEN VICTOIUA.-Some days-ngo wo
beard that Queen Victoria was sick unto
deatb. Tho Prime Minister, Gladstone,
and tho Prince of Wales were both sum?
moned to ber presence. Hours nud days
bave elapsed and we bave had no news.
Does it mean that the Government is
determined to preservo silence at all "ha?
zards, or that tho Queen's condition is
so precarious that silence is deemed
wisest in tbe premises? To us the
sileuce is ominous. It seems tu imply
that the Government is fully aware ol
the fact that a crisis has been roached.
The British people, with all their faults,
are conservative. Tho present genera
tion is bound up in Viotoria. Wo an
willing to hope for tho sako of oui
British cousins that the lifo of thi
Queen is good for many years to como
for, so far as wo can see, after tho Qoeei
must como tho deluge. Nothing likt
this hus happened Mince Gcorgo tin

THE TB?ESXIAL CONVENTION OP . Tin
PROTESTANT EPISCOPAL. Cnuitcu.-Tin
Triennial General Convention of tin
Protestant Episcopal Church of tin
United States, which met iu Ballimore
on Wednesday, will be a most interest
ing session, and is tho subject of mud
talk and speculation amongst tho clorg;
and laity of that church generully. Tb
Sun says: Among tho questions to b
considered by the convention will be tb
report of the Committee on Rubies
Amendments, which is likely to provok
a discussion- on some of tbe principe
points on which the high church an
low church parties are at issue, Tb
difference botweou Bishop Wbitehous
and the Rev. Mr. Cheney, of Chicagc
and the relations of (it is presumed) th
Rev. Stephen H. Tyng, Jr., to bi
bishop, will also have to bo settled, o
woll as the recent now departure of Re)
Mr. Thrall and other ministers and coi
gregations, with respect to tho revise
book of commou prayer. There at
forty dioceses to bo represented in tl:

KALSOMININO VS, WHITEWASH.-The
inconvenience of ordinary "whitewash"
is that it rubs off with the slightest
touch. Many recipes aro afloat to pre?
vent this disadvantage of using simply
suspended lime. The kalsominicg pro?
cess is simple, cheap, and forms a fine
finish. The following process:
Soak four ouuoes of fine white glue in
ono quart of warm water for twenty-four
hours; then add a pint of water, and
place the vessel that coutuius the glue
into a vessel of boiling water, until the
gluo is perfeotly dissolved. Put five
pounds of good Paris white into a buck?
et, add hot water enough to make it of
the consistency of cream. Add to it tho
glue water, and mix thoroughly by stir?
ring. Tho beauty and success of the re?
sult depends much on the application of
thc compound. It should be put on
evenly with a good bi tish, no Btreaks ho?
ing left. The cousistenoy may bo pro?
perly produced by the addition of hot
water. Two coats should be given, and,
if well done, it is equal to any other
more expensive finish. Paris white is
common chalk that has been ground to
fino powder and thoroughly washed. It
is a cheap article.-Our Home Journal.
