muda potatoes he made one hundred and sixty
tubers from one planted, ono hundred and forty

Where seed is costly, or new varieties are

of planting is worthy of attention.
0fTho following ia a list of (he persona
who have been killed in duels in California:
Edward Gilbert, by Denver, in 1852; Dr.
Crane, by a Mr. Tobey, in 1853; Major Wood

Governor Weller, of California, pur
chased a fine farm in Alameda County, and
will make his home there after the olose of his
official term. He purchased tbe farm of Mr.
John Ludling, who belongs to a party of So
cialists and iree-lovers, and it is said that the
funds obtained by tho sale of his farm are to
be spent in carrying tho party to Nicaragua,
and establishing them there. The climate of
that country is supposed to be congenial to
tbe doctrinea of freo-love.
jjJTEdwin Forreat is lying on his oars,,

the managers, and some of bis personal
friends, when urged to accept engagements
and again appear in public on tbe Btage,
that he will not do so until all his difficulties

jSS-Tho Boston Trantcript denies the as
sertion that the Emigrant Aid Society waa in
any way connected with the recent disturb
ances in Virginia. It Bays: "Tho direct
charge that the arms of the Company were
used by Captain Brown in his insurrection at
Harper's Ferry, is equally devoid of truth.
We nave the best authority for stating that
the Company has never invested a dollar in
cannon or rifles, in powder or lead, or in any
of the implements of war, for use in Kansas
or anywhere elBe."
E3The corn orop has matured pretty gen
erally throughout the entiro West, and none
of consequence has been injured by the late
frosts. In Illinois there is no doubt that tbe
orop is a large one; some correspondents esti
mate it three times as large as that of last
year. In Missouri there is no doubt that the
oroo is very good, both as regards quantity
and quality; andlettera from various parts of
the State indicate that tne yield is aouoie mat
of lait year, and the quality of oorn very su
perior. pg M. Bouieson, a Frenoh writer, has
marie some very remarkable researches npon
the danger of smoking. He states that oanoer
in tho mouth has grown so frequent from the
use of tobaooo that it now forms one of the
most dreaded diseases in the hospitals. From
1645 to 1859, he has bimeelf performed sixty
eight operations for eanoers in the lips in the
Hospital St. Elol. The ubo of tobacoo rarely
produces lip oanoer in youth. Almost all of
Bonlsson's patients bad passed tbe age of lorty
The disease Is also more frequent with Individ
uals of the humbler elans, who imoke short
vines and tobaooo of inferlorauallty, while with
tne orientals, who are oaroiui to preserve tne
coolness of the month-piece by the transmis
sion of the smoke through water, itis unknown;
showing that it ia generated mors by the eon
stantapplioation of heat to tbe lipt than by the
inhaling oiBioeunt, hi.. , . .
Brussels Lace.
Some idea nmy be formed of what a sumDtu-
ona article of dress in thia laoe, from the fol
lowing pargraph in a letter to the Boston
Journal;
Tho peculiarity of this laoe. in addition la
lis fineness, which distinguishes it, is that
many of the ohuicest pattorns are worked
separately, with the most mlorossopis minute-
ueis, anu are sewer on. ine flax employed
mi ius uiauuiaoiure grows near a place called
Hal; the very best, however, comes from
Bobeque, and eosts from $60 to $80 per pound.
We were told that much denends unon the
tennity of the fibre. We were offered a yard
of the most expensive quality of the laoe for
tne mortost aum ot fiv, but a very good quality
oould have boon purchased for $12. We saw
some even aa low us $3. Handsome sets, em
bracing ladies' collars and sleeves of point
lace, are sold from $12 upward.
Beautiful applique sets are Bold as low
as $6. The prioes perfectly astonished our
ladies, who had so often been sold by the

Marriage Portions for Everybody.
Many yeara ago, Oliver Smith, an old bach
elor who resided in one of the towna in Hamp
shire County, Mass., left the bulk of his prop
erty to be managed by trustees until it should
amount to $400,000, when one-half the inoome
was to be annually given to twenty-one boy a
who should faithfully perform oertain con
ditions of the will, one-fourth to eighteen
girls, one-eighth to fifty-four young women
tor marriage portions, and tbe remaining
eighth to the same number of indigont and
deserving widows. The required aum waa
reached last week, and accordingly abont ten
thousand eight hundred dollars will hereafter
annually be distributed among the boys about
five hundred and fifteen dollars apiece making
quite a prize for those who are lucky enough
to eeoure the prize; and as this distribution is
to be an annual thing, an army of boys will
in time be furnished with a handsome Bum to
start life with. The sum of $5,400 will be dis
tributed among the g'rls $300 apieoe; $2,700
for marriage portions making $50 apieoe,
which will pay for many of the neoessBry
"Aixinsj" and the same aum ($50 apiece) to the
widowB. The trustees of tbefund areannually
elected, like all other town offioers, and the
principal of the fund is mainly loaned npon
real estate in ths various towns of the county.
We are unacquainted with the prescribed re
quirements for obtaining tbe priiea.
The Fish Trade. Lake Miohigan ia quite
oelebrated for the excellent quality of the Sab.
oaught in its waters. One village that of St.
J osepha, Michigan, has thirteen fishing amacks,
and the produot this season baa been an aggre
gate, aooording to the Chioago Democrat, of
20,190;half-barrels of fish, netting the round
sum ef $100,800, or nearly $8,000 to each
boat. " At New Buffalo, in the Bame county,
about 4,000 half-barrels have been oaught the
present season, making $170,000 as tbe value
of the fishing interest of two villages alone for
a single season," The principal portion of tbe
fish are white, though many are trout, and
other excellent varietios. Nearly every city
and village bordering on the lako has its fish
ermen, and, oould ths statistics of tbe fish
trade of Miohigan be colleoted, we have reason
to think that they would make an exhibit
somewhere in the vioinity of fifteen hundred
thousand dollars.
Ely S. Parker, Chief of the Six Nation
and an engineer in the employ of the Federal
Government, at Galena, Illinois, started on the
13th Instant for Buffalo, to pay hla annual
visit to the Six Nations. Tbe Dubuque Ilwald
says :
Captain Parker gooa every year, dl vests him
self of the habiliments of civilization, puts on
the garb of the Red Man, and as their Chief,
listens to their complaints, adjusts their griev
ances, and harmonizes their diverse opinions.
Captain Parker looks about half-and-half In
dian j he is portly, aa if fed upon turtle soup,
has a dark but pleasant eye, long atraigbt hair,
the copper complexion, highly softened with
white, and generally dooa not present any ap
pearance suggestive of tomahawks or soalping
knives.
Otstsrs and thkib Eskmiis. -Oysters have
but three formidable enemies, namely : The
wire-worm or drill, the inseot whioh has honey
combed so many of tbe Great . Eastern or
Eaton's Neok oysters j the star flab, and in
some oountries the monkey, who, at low tide,
walks out to their beds, and thriftting a stone
between their two shells, readily scoops them
out with his paw. We have heard the same
etory related in regard to the crab aud lob
ster. When the wire-worm reaches tbe body
ef the oyster, probably boring tbe shell by aid
of some aeid seoretion, be stops, and never
leaves it till be entirely eonsumea It by suc
tion. The star-fish fixes blmsolf ovor the end
of the oyster, and patiently waita for It to
open, whioh it must occasionally do. At each
and every such time tbia insidious enemy ex
hausts, npon pneumatio principles, a portion
of the air within tbe bivalve, until it literally
diet for want ef breath.
Monument to Maffit.
Tbe Mobile Xriluns contains an article en
titled "Monument to Maflit," It says that
the Nashville Chrutian Advocate- declarea that
there ia evidenoe of a disposition in the public
mind to revive the memory of John Newland
Malfit, and that many are bold to say that the
verdict wbich doomed his last days to ob
scurity, and leaves his name unhonored, was
"wrong, all wrong."
A lady passing through Mobile, on her way
from South Carolina to Texas, writes as follows
on this subject:
"At Mobile, Rev. Mr. Andrews, the pastor
ui mo ot. cranois-sireet tnuron, was ao mna
as to bring a carriage and take us to aee poor
Maffit's grave. It was sad to stand (beside it,
and tee tbe grave of him who peculiarly loved
the beautiful, marked only by a few bricks,
and not even a rose or a violet or a forget-me-not
planted there. Aa I gated npon it the
thought noourred to me, 'If every peraon whom
Mr. Mailt has received into the church, or who
has In any way received spiritual beneQtfrom
ma pro&umng, anouia oontribute tna email
sum of one dollar, I wonder if it would not
build him a very nioe monument; aomething
better, at least, than this briok pavement?'
Would not the experiment be worth trying?
And as be reoeived me into the ohuroh, may
I not have the pleasure and the privilege of
subscribing the first dollar? If there are any
among the thousands who onco sat enraptured
while he spoke, who are now willing to contri
bute one dollar to this monument, let them
send tbe money to Kev. A. S. Andrews, pastor
of the St. Francis Churoh, Mobile."
The Chrutian Advocate also gives the' fol
lowing characteristic anecdote of an old Ken
tuckian, long familiar with hunting and border
warfare, who, being present at a conversation
wbero MaSt's name was mentioned in con
nection with those of other distinguished Meth
odist ministers, exclaimed: "I tell you what it
is, gentlemen, aay what yon please about your
BaBOombs and Waugha and Capersea, but in
the big day coming Maffit will bring aa many
ileelpi as any of 'em."
Fbznch SnpsasTiTioM. The Paris eorre
ipondent of tbe London Star writes: 1
The death of the Cure d'Ars at Lyons has
caused the whole devout population of tbe
Empire to hurry In crowds to his tomb. The
Abbe L'aoordaire, who has remained with him
for several months, was with him at his dying
hour, and promises the most wondrous revela
tions oonoerning the passage from life to death
of the Saint, wlioso canonisation alroady oc
cupies tho authority of the Church. The
miracles already wrought at the tomb of the
Cure d'Ars exceed, if one may bolieve the tale,
both in quantity and quality, those j once
enacted at tho grave of the Diacre Paris.' The
blind are made to aee, the lame to walk, and
every human ill Is set at nought by a prayer
at the stone which covers the remains of the
Cure d'Ars.
Tho Empress, wbo publicly deolarcd the
birth of the Prince Imperial to be owing to
thia holy man'a intercession, is said to have
been ia olose correspondence with him during
the whole of the war. To show the fanaticism
inspired by the event of his death, the omni
bus service from Lyons to tha village wbero he
lived, and whioh was started to drive straight
to his door, has been doubled since his death,
and drives nowhere but to tbe cemetery where
his corpse reposes. A nine days' vigil is estab
lished for tho different eonreret throughout
France, in order to fuoilitato tho transmission
of miraoleB for the convenience of those who
can not make the journey to Lyons.
The Best Fuel.
Wood is the healthiest, because it contains
a large amount of oxygon; coal has none,
hence, in burning it, the oxygen necessary
for its combustion must be supplied from the
air of the room, leaving it "closely" oppres
sive. A coal fire will go out uulesa it has a
constant and large supply of air, while wood,
with comparatively little, having a large
supply within itself, turns to "live", coals.
Close-grained heavy woods, like hickory and
oak, give out the most heat, while pine and
poplar, being open-grained, heat up the
quickest. Tbe value of fuel aa a heating ma
terial, is determined by the amount of water
which a pound will raise to a given tempera
ture; thus, one pound of wood will convert
forty pounds of ice to boiling water, while a
pound of coal will thus heat near eighty
pounds of ioe-cold water; hence, pound for
pound, coal is as good again for mero heat
ing purposes, and wood is aa good again aa
peat, which is tho produot of sodges, seeds,
rushes, mosses, Ac.
But, if a tun of coal, that is, twenty-eight
bushels, or twenty-two hundred and forty
pounds, cost $5, it is about equal to the beBt
wood at $2 25 a cord. Coal, at $12 50 a tun,
is as cheap as wood at $5 50 a cord. It would
be moro equitable, if wood was dry, to sell it
by tho pound. Such is the custom in France.
For heating sleeping apartments, wood Bhould
be used.
The City of Mexico.
It Is thus desorlbed by Humboldt, who vis
ited it in 1803:
The oapital, reconstructed by tbe Spaniards,
exhibits, perhaps, a less vivid, though a more
august and majostio appearance than the an
cient Tenochtitlan. Mexico is undoubtedly
one of the finest cities ever built by Europeans
in either hemisphere. With the exception of
Petersburgh, Berlin, Philadelphia and tome
(u&rters of Westminster, there does not exist a
oity of the same extent which can be oompared
to the oapital of New Spain for the uniform
level of the ground on whioh it stands, for ths
regularity and breadth of the stroets, and tbe
extent of the publie places. Tho architecture
is generally of a pure stylo, and there are even
edifices of a very beautiful structure.'1 The
exterior of the houses is not loaded with orna
ments. Two aorta of hewn atone, the porena
amygdaloid, called telzontli, and especially a
porphyry of vitreous feld apath, without any
quarts, give to tbe Mexioan buildings an air
of aolidity, and sometimes even magnificence.
There are none of tboae wooden balconies and
galleries to be seen whioh disfigure ao muoh
nil tbe European cities ia both the Indies. The
balustrades and gates are all of Biscay iron,
trnamented with bronzo, and tbe houses, in
ctead of roofs, have terraces, like those in Italy
(.ad other Southern eountries. . '
A Clibgviiah Elopiso with His Friend's
Daughter A correspondent of the Bangor
Union states that gteat exoitement exists in
Dexter, in oonsequenoe of the absoonding on
Thursday last, from that plooe, of Rev. Wm.
B. Cilley, taking with him the daughter of
Kev. J. F. Wetherell, a lovely and interesting

irell has been in pursuit, but has not been able
t get any trace of them beyond Augusta, which
place they left on Friday. We understand
that Cilley oame by the lower route to Yar
