Production and Destruction.
On looking over recently somjof
tho newly mado incomo tax returns,
wo wero struck by tho.io attached
tj two names in particular. Mr.
MeCormick, of Chicago, ugiicullu
ral implcmonl n.aker, and inventor
of a wry useful reaping machine,
gets credit for l:st year's incomo at
tho very respectable figuro of about
n quarter of a million dollars. It is
gratifying to soo Mr. McCorn'.ick
thus basking in a brilliant prosper
ity. It gives nssurauco th.Ungii.

Htato. Hut Mr. MeCormick is alto
gether distanced in tlio raco by the
Colt family, ono of whom is the
widow of o late member of tho firm.
Thoy return the stupendous sum of
two millions of dollnrs for their
ycar'y gains. Tho success of that
well-known instrument Coil's re
volver, accounts lor much of this
vnstnesa of acquisition. It is la
iitonlablo, tbo St. Louis Republican
soys, that tho rewards for improvements
in tlio implements of death,
should so far exceed those obtained
for facilitating tho means for tho
sustunanco of human life. And yet
tho rago fur increat-ing tho powers
of destruction is, if anything, be
coming more intense. Millions up
on millions aro being spent upon
iroiisiding slops, constituting mon
itors, rifling guns, great and small,
woighing in tbo scales of experi
ment the comparative powors of im
pact nod resistance, Thus it is in
this nineteenth century, rich in tho
accumulations of tlio experience and
wisdom of tlio past, and boasting
an advanced civilization, tho groat
rivalry among tho nations is to ob
tain tbo most cllicicnt menns to de
stroy; Thero is but littlo roasou,
too, for hoping that u stugo for rest
is about being ultJincd. No, the
probability is,. that what may bo
called malignant scicnco nod vic

rich rewards behtowed upon thorn,
