as it ought to do. One Mr. Stebbins Peer
a rope-walker, who has had a cable stretch

sensations combined, conceived the bril
liant idea of taking a cat on the rope, and
starting it on ahead of him. When about
thirty feet from shore, he put the cat on
the rope. Tabby, instead of making a
bee-line across, turned upon Peer. climled
upon him, and listened her truth in his
shoulder. Puss stuck fast ; Peer lost his
balance-pole, and had to scramble back to
shore as best he could.
We tmve nothing In America that com

London. That functionary is chosen an

to $10,000 a year. His outside expenses
are as much more. He resides in the Man-Eion-IIousc,
which is sumptuously fur
nished, and provided with plate and jew
eled ornaments said to be worth .20.000
to 30.000. His household consists of
twenty gentlemen, including the Sword
toarer. the Common Hunt, the Common
Crier, and the Water RailiiT, all of whom
have the title of esquire. He has a splen
did retinue of servants, and keeps three
tables. He is provided with a gorgeous
state coach, but not with horses, and he
finds the dress carriage and horses for the
Lady Mayoress. He is expected to give a
certain number of state banquets during
the year, in addition to bearing half the
expenses of the inauguration dinner at
Guildhall on the !)lh of November.
Something new is the musical tree. It is
owned by a resident of New York City,
who purchased it in Europe, and is quite
positive it is the only thing of the kind in
America. It is ati artificial tree or bush
about five feet high, set in a large square
tub of russian leather. It looks very nat
ural and beautiful, every leaf, sprig and
twig being absolutely perfect in tlie work
manship of copying nature. Touch a
knob on the side of the tub and instantly
the tree is literally filled with small birds
of every imaginable hue and color, includ
ing those represented in the rainbow.
Each and every bird begins to sing, and
very sweetly, too, their soft notes blending
beautifully in harmony. Touch the knob
again and the birds disappear mysterious
ly, to reappear whenever summoned by
pressure of the little gold knob. And this
is the musical tree about which so much
is said in fashionable circles up town.
Old Mr. Crabapple is very much pleased
with a gentleman whom he had engaged
to saw wood. "When he piles the wood,"
said old Crabapple to his friend, "if one
stick projects Itevond the others, he
pounds it in with the ax." "lie's a
slouch," replied old Mr. Stubble; "you
should see my -woodsawyer. When he
gets the wood all piled, he takes off the
rough projecting ends with a claw-hammer
saw." "Does he ? Well, he couldn't
Eile wood for me," broke in old Spiken
urg; "my sawyer piles the wood care
fully, then goes over the ends with a jack
plane, sandpapers them down, and puts
n a coat of varnish before he ever thinks
of asking for his pay." Then they all
went into the Grand Hotel after a big
drink, before Syntax could tell how his
woodsawyer silver-plated all the ends of
the wood, and nailed a handle on each and
every stick to pick it up by.
A Scene in the Mammoth Cave.
The "Rail-Room " is a mighty chamber,
admirably fitted for the dance, with even a
rocky gallery, in which an orchestra has.
Irom tune to time, leen placed, when gay
parties from Iouisville and other neigh
boring cities have engaged in festivities
with music and torches. A short distance
beyond looms up a huge mass of rock
known as the Giant's Collin. Passing the
deserted chamber, the " Wooden Bowl
Cave," where oxide of lime and iron are
sprinkled on the floor, and crossing the
" Bridge of Sighs," we came at List to the
Here our guide had prepared a genuine
surprise for us. Mysteriously command
ing us to be seated in a dark corner, he
suddenly seized tlie lights, and saying that
he would return to find us on the morrow,
withdrew. AVe heard his sonorous voice
echoing along the galleries as he hurried
back over the pathway, and while we were
yet wondering what was the object of this
sudden maiwuver, we saw above us
twinkling stars, and seemed to catch a
glimpse of the blue sky from which we had
thought ourselves shut eut by the solid
rock. Indeed, so strange was the illusion,
that we fancied we could feel the fresh air
blowing Uon us. and, for a few moments,
imagined that the guide had conveyed us
bv 6ome roundabout wav to the mouth of
the cave, and then had hastily left us, that
he might enjoy our surprise. Rut pres
ently we heard kis voice, confessing the
cheat which he had practiced upon us. The
dark ceiling of the Star Chamber is cov
ered with a myriad of sparkling incrusta
tions whieli resemble the stars, and the
artful guide, by a careful display of his
lamps and the use of Bengal lights, had
produced a magical effect. The ceiling,
which was not more than forty feet from
our heads, had seemed remote as the heav
ens. It was like the early dawn, when
the stars seem no longer to belong in the
sky, and when they are gradually fading
aw-ay. The guide, in the distance, imitated
to perfection the crowing of the morning
cock, and then burst iute loud laughter as,
removing the lamps, he took away with
them the deceit, and returned to us. Ed

A Legislative Story.
A gentleman who holds a seat in the
upper branch of the New York Legislatue,
but at the time was a member of the As
sembly, relates the following:
Perkins was as honest a man as ever
set toot in Albanv. Money wouldn't buy
him. and I knew "it: but I thought I would
have a iittle fun with him: so I went down
into his room one e-ening and said:
" Perkins, what do you think of that
underground railroad bill? Are you go
ing to vote for it V
"Well," said Perkins "I havn't made
up nit mind yet exactly. 1 am inclined
to think it a good bill. Rut why do you
" I thought you were in favor of it," said
L, "and as longa you have concluded to
to vote tor it. I just wanted to say to you
that the men interested in it are paying
Ave hundred dollars for rotes, aud as it is
coming up on its final passage to-morrow,
you can Jnst as well have the money as
not; you'll vote for the bill, any way.'
"Vote for the bill! I'll be hanged
first !" cried the irate Perkin. "No. sir I
If improper means are being taken
to pass this thing as you say, 1 lor one
will vote against it every time. 1 ou can
put me down, no I"
" I don't care any thing about this bill,"
said I. "I was only trying to do you a
favor, and I think I can yet: lor, to tell
you the truth, the rival companies are in
full force and are moving heaven and earth
to defeat it. riiey are paying the same
sum fr 'noes,' and as long as you are
bound to vote that way, I'll get you the
five hundred dollars all the same."
"Can suc h things be?" exclaimed Per
kins, rising from his seat and tearing up
ami down the room in a whirlwind of
righteous wrath and virtuous indignation,
" What a st.it e of things this Is! A plague
on txjth of vour houses; I won't vote at
" All right," said I, as I laid my hand
on the door, " I'll get you five hundred
dred dollars for being absent !"
And as tlie lollv Senator brought to
mind the horror of perplexity in which
this last projosiUon involved Perkins, he
roared with laughter.

The Formal Transfer f the Fiji Is
land to the llritlftb t'ronn.
Correspondence of the New York World.!
Lkvi-ka. Fiji. Octolier 3. The project
of annexation, w hich has been the absorb
ing topic of discussion lor many montns,
has linally culminated, and these islands
are now a dependence of the British Crown.
The event is hailed with satisfaction by
the white residents of whatever nationali
ty, for every interest of this splendid coun
try, wi ll its unrivalled climate and prolific
resources, must receive an immediate im
pulse with the inauguration of staple and
etleetivc government. To the present time
the islands have been in wretched condi
tion for the want of government, and al
though the whites have maintained undis
puted control, great abuses have existed in
all part. A great proportion of the na
tives have been practically held In slavery
through a system of peonage, fostered by
the assumed government. As an illustra
tion, the Fijians have been taxed out ol all
proportion to their abilities. They are re
quired to contribute to the support of the
government, and in addition pay a liberal
tribute to the active officers of the districts
in which they live. If the native is delin
quent with the cash, and which in the
greater number of instances he finds it im
possible to gather together, he is treated
as a criminal, and forced to labor at four
shillings a month, that he may make good
his dues to the government.
The work of preparing the country for
annexation and converting the king and
his advisers to the scheme has been accom
plished by the professional residents of
this metropolis, the merchants and plant
ers taking little part in the scheme. When
all was readiness. Sir Hercules Robinson,
the governor of New South Wales, was
com missioned to represent the crown in
consummating the plan. His excellency
arrived here on board H. B. M. S. Pearl on
Wednesday, the 30th of September, and
the session occurred on the same day with
little ceremony. He was attended by
Commodore Goodenough, G. L. Inncs,
attorney-general of New South Wales, and
Mr. Hutchinson, the British consul.
The governor was greeted on shipboard
bv Mavor Cudlio and the counsel of the
city of Levuka, and his majesty King
Cakobau, now shorn of his royal preroga
tives, waited lamb-like on shore, to offer
himself and his kingdom a willing sacri
fice to the insatiable maw of a British do
After landing, the governor proceeded
to the government buildings at Navosa,
and was met by King Cakobau, in the au
dience hall building.
Among those present were the chief
justice, the attorney general, the Hawaiian
consul, the nuance minister, Majors
Harding and Thurston, and tlie native
chiefs R.itu Abel. Ratu Joseph, Ratu
Savanea, llatu Isekcli, Tui Ran. Tui Le
vuka, Roko Tui Bau, Buli Yendua, and
The secretary read the memorandum of
cession first in the Fijian language, and
then in English. " The king signed the
document and handed it to Sir Hercules
Robinson, who said that he, on the part
of the queen, accepted it in the spirir. in
which it was offered, and that the king
had. bv this act. performed the part of a
truly great chief, consulting, as he had
doubtless done thereby, the test interests
of the country. He assured the king that
he wished prosperity to t ni, anu peace
and happiness to her people.
Another long document was reau in
Fiiian and English, which contained the
articles of session, engrossed on parch
The king then made his first present to
tlie aueen. five turtles and a new canoe
and it was accepted. The governor and
king then shooK hands, and me proceed
An annexation ball was given on Thurs
day 'night, which was attended by Sir
Hercules Robinson and suite and King
Cakobau and his retinue. It is expected
that a troop-ship will arrive during the
present month with a troop of 400 marines,
to fasten practically the ban of British au
thority. Meantime, in the midst of all the re
joicing, and quite indifferent, if not ob
livious to its purport, the powerful native
chiefs, Mafu and Tui Cokan, are engaged
in sanguinary strife to settle the sovereign
ty over the best half of Ovalu. The ex
lected troops will have plenty of work at
the outset in chastising and subjugating
these and other refractory tribes who
know nothing about the cession of their
territory, and have not been consulted in
the matter by the august Cakobau.
The latest announcement is the appoint
ment of Major Thurston as acting gov
ernor of Fiji.
Of the general news of the island there
is but little to write. A malignant form of
leprosy has been discovered prevailing in
different native tribes, similar to that in the
Hawaiian islands, and immediate measures
for the colonization of the affected are be
The schooner Daphne, just arrived at
this port from the New Ilebrides, reports
that the American schooner Zephyr, com
manded by Captain Alfred Clarke, of San
Francisco, was captured by the natives in
Port Resolution, on the 11th of August,
and all on board were murdered and eaten.
Tlie crew of the Daphne attempted the
rescue of the ill-fated men, and after a
sharp skirmish with the cannibals drove
them to the bush and discovered the re
mains of their horrid feast,
A Run of Bad Luck.
A New York correspondent of the Bos
ton Journal says : "There are men on the
street with whom every thingturns to gold
that they touch. There are other men
who are shrewd, talented, Industrious,
sober, who never get ahead in anv tiling.
We have an illustration of this bad luck in
one of tlie heaviest wool dealers in New
York. He began life cautiously, worked
his way up, and amassed a fortune. Three
years ago he made his will. He had $G00,
000 to distribute. Had he died then or
gone out f business, he would have been
a rich man. Every thing went against
him. Every body that failed affected him.
Loss followed loss. Wave after wave struck
his craft, flis losses were fearful and con
tinuous. His partner he took into his
store as a boy. When his property reached
$,V)0,000 he wanted to give the youth a
start. The young man repaid his consid
eration and thoughtfulness by defrauding
him on the right and on the left. Finding
himself the victim of circumstances that he
could not control, he succumbed and pass
ed away suddenly, leaving only a w reck
A fetrifted ring-dove has been found
in Reading, Pa., and the Times describes
it thus: The bird is now composed of
stone, but the form of the body, head and
neck is well preserved. The place where
the eyes were can even be noted. It is in
a sitting posture, half reclining on the
right side, much compressed in the. mid
dle of the body, and the head turned to
one side. The ring around Its neck is
plainly dlscernable, aad there can be no
mistaking it. . .

Temporary Ice Ponds.
Ice is no longer a luxury for the farmer.
It is a necessity. In many diflerent ways
it enables him to make the most of his
farm products. By usin; it to cool his
milk promptly he considerably improves
the quality and quantity of his dairy pro
duce, and in packing his butter for market
it is indispensable. Many farms are far from
a natural or ready-made artificial source of
ice-suppiy, and to the dwellers on these it
is important to know where the ice is to
come from. Probably there are farms, es
pecially in the West, whese there is no
chance for making a temporary pond, but
by far the greater jtart of our farms include
rolling land, which must somewhere af
ford a depression capable of being made
into a reservoir during the winter. The
best and surest way, of course, is to dam a
stream, no matter how small, at a place
where the conformation of the land is
such that a short dam will flood a broad sur
face. It does not take a very large super
ficial area of water to lurnish ice enough
for a private establishment (half an acre
frozen six inches thick will yield 300 tons
of ice); and no doubt many farmers will
be able to find hollows in their land where
a comparatively small dam will Hood a
sufficient area. It is not by any means es
sential that the dam shall cross the bed of
a regular water course. The long storms
of early winter almost always set little
streams runnmg down depressions, which
receive the washings of a few acres. If a
water-tight dam be made across one of
these, it is probable that a pond large
enough for an ice-crop will be ready by
the time the heavy frosts set in. If the
pond is to be merely a temporary affair, it
is desirable that the dam shall be
to a certain extent portable, and
there is nothing so available and servicea
ble as common fence posts and hemlock
planks. Dig postr-holes say four feet deep
and six or eight feet apart along the line
of the proposed dam. If the posts are to
stand more than four feet above ground
they should be bedded in some kind of
concrete to secure solidity. The posts
should be braced on the down-stream side
as firmly as practicable. To these posts
the hemlock planks are to be bolted, with
carriage bolts, with the nuts on the down
stream side. The planks must be of equal
length (1G feet long if the posts are 8 feet
apart), and of like width, tongued and
grooved. The lower edges are to be at
least three or four inches below the sur
face of the ground with the earth well
rammed around them. In fastening the
planks to the posts, joints should be
broken, the ends and middles of
the planks bearing the same rela
tion to one another as bricks or dressed
stone in masonry. Any apparent
cracks or leaks of any kind should be calk
ed with rags or filled with clay or water
cement, arid however much care may be
fciken it is reasonably certain that the dam,
if it is of any considerable size. 'will leak
somewhere. For this reason it is desirable,
wherever possible, to build it across a na
tural water course, as in this case it is pos
sible to prove its tightness, plank by plank
as the water rises. Where, however, the
dam is small, its tightness may be reason
ably assured by a liberal use of clay or ce
ment wherever there Is a chance of leak
age. A dam of this kind may be taken
down in the spring, leaving tlie posts in
position for further use. -Christian Union.
A BcToIntion In Flonr-Makiajj.
We have heretofore sjwken of the new
process of making flour now coming into
"encral use in Minnesota aud elsewhere,
ft may justlv be calldr a revolution in the
trade. Briefly, thc;process consists in pas
sing the wheat through a smut-machine;
then through the "Decorticator," where
the outer fibre of the grain is removed ;
after this, grinding coarsely and submit
ting to an" air-blast which separates the
finer flour, composed of starch mostly,
from the coarser or middlings, which con
tain all the saccharine and other nutritive
projerties of the wheat. These middlings,
thus purified, are then ground, forming
the "New Process" flour.
The idea is of European origin, but has
been vastly improved, and is still in course
of improvement, in Minnesota. By the
new process, sixteen pounds more of flour
are produced from the quantity of wheat
required to make a barrel of flour. In
quality, the new flour is vastly superior to
the old. Spring-wheat, by this process,
will make superior flour. More stones are
required, as the running is slower, but the
power will make as much flour as form
erly in consequence of the diminished
speed. In price, the new process flour
commands fifty cents more than that which
formerly ranked as the best. Western
To show how love levels all inequalities
of stations. Paris records a wedding where
in the bridegroom was three f-et four
inches in heteh, and the bride six feet and
a half. Which, manifestly, cannot be re-
garded as a "marriage of convenience."
Tablk mats can be made by cutting col
ored flannel in oval or circular shape, pink
ing the edges and sewing common white
buttons opposite to each scallop for an
edge. The same in the center of a mat in
the shape of a star or triangle, will keep
the hot dishes from heating tlie table.
Tapioca Cmeam. Soak 3 tablespoonfuls
of tapioca over night or 5 or 6 hours, in
cold water enough to swe.i it. Jkald a
quart of milk and when boiling stir In the
tapioca, letting it cook 3 or 4 minutes.
Add the yelks of 3 eggs, well beattn, a
teacupful of sugar (minus a few teaspoon
fuls which should be reserved for frosting)
and flavor to taste. Reserve a little of the
milk cold to put with the eggs, and stir in
very quickly just as it is set off from the
tire. The whites should be beaten still
and flavored slightly and sweetened a lit
tle, and dumped lu stoonfuls on the top
after it has been poun d in a pudding dish.
Now set in a warm oven and brown light
ly on the top.
To Make SnEKPSKiM Mats. Wash
while fresh in strong soapsuds, first pick
ing from the wool all the dirt that will
come out. A little kerosene, a tablcspoon-
ful to 3 gallons ol water, win am
moving the impurities. Continue to wash
the skill in fresh suds till it is white and
clean. Then dissolve pound each ol
salt and alum in 3 pints of boiling water,
put it into water enough to cover the
skin, which should soak in tlie solution 12
hours, and then be hung on a line to
drain. When nearly dry, nail it wool side
in on a lmard, or the side of abarn. to dry.
Uub into the skin an ounce each of pulver
ized alum and saltpeter, and if the skin is
very large, double the quantity. Hub for
an hour or two. Fold the skin sides to
gether, and lay the mat away for three
davs, rubbing it every day, or till peifcct
ly drv. Then with a blunt knife clear the
skin of impurites, rub it with pumice or
rotten stone, trim it Into shape, and you
have a ditor mat that will hist a lifetime.
Cider. To have good cider, says the
Maryland Farmer, the apples ought to be
sound, clean, and somewhat mellow, and
there should be perfect cleanliness in all
the operation of grinding, etc. The bar
rels ought to be clean and free from all
taint or bad ssiell. Keep the barrels full,
during fermentation, with cider of the
same making kept for the purpose. As
son as it ceases to actively ferment, draw
it off into other barrels and at the same
time strain it through a blanket of muslin
common cotton and when it ceases
fermenting, add to it 4 lbs. of mustard seed
or, as some recommend, suljihite of lime;
then bung down.- A small gimlet-hole
might be bored through the bung to let oft
for a few days any excess of gas, and then
stopped up tight. To have it extra fine,
it should be racked off the third time.
Good cider always commands a high price,
and it is admitted to be a wholesome and
The Prollls of Farming.
The farmer who resides within reach o
a good market, where every thing he can
produce will command a ready sale at fair
prices, and where nothing goes to waste,
has a decided advantage over the farmer
who lives farther from market and only
depends upon such staple articles of pro
duce as grain, stock, etc. The perishable
articles, which he cannot handle, yield the
largest profits. The advantages of a good
home market are well illustrated by the
following table, taken from the last vol
ume of the Agricultural Report, just is
sued. It shows the average cash value ol
farm products per acre in each State and
in the Territories :

'I he Eastern States, which are not half
so productive as those at the west, yield
double the returns, in cash, to the fanner.
Nevada and the Western Territories, not
producing a supply equal to the home de-
mauu, pay xne iariner irom two io me
prices foridl he can raise, which makes his
business profitable. The value of the land
must be determined, therefore, not so
much bv its productive qualities as by its
market facilities. The farmer who can get
as much money out of ten acres of grou nd,
with half the labor, as can be obtained by
his brother from twenty acres, can afford
to pay very much more for his ten acres
than his brother pays for his twenty acres.
The saving of one-halt the labor is not for
one year only, but is a perpetual advant
age. The farmer, therefore, who goes far
awiy from market, in order to get cheap
lands, will discover that the purch .se
price of lands should not be considered so
much as the market facilities.
Let us Consider. Since the introduc
tion of distilled spirits in the Sixteenth
Century, they have been habitually pre
scribed as remedies. We know that alco
hol, in all its forms, is pernicious to health.
Knowing these things and that under the
system of treatment which includes their
use, the mortality among the sick is, and
ever has been, enormous, is it not worth
while to try the effect of a remedy which
combines in their highest excellence the
qualities of a Tonic, an Alterative and a
Regulator ; contains no mineral bane or
murderous alkaloid or alcoholic poison ;
does its curative office without pain and
with uniform certainty? Dn. Walrus's
Vinegar Bittkrs fulfills all these condi
tions, and is now effecting the most ex
traordinary cures, in c ises where every
" specific" of the faculty has ignominious
ly failed. Consider, in view of these f;icts,
whether any sick person is justified by rea
son and common sense in declining to test
the virtues of this undefiled and irresisti
