PROVISIONAL MINISTRY OF FRANCE.
Gabriel Claude Jules Favre, who has
been placed at the head of the Provisional
Government of Franco its Minister of
Foreign Affairs, is an eminent lawver and
politician. He was born in Lyons, March
21, 1802. At tha age of twenty-one he
took a prominent part in pnblic r.ffairs as
the optonent of royalty andhe had just
attained that age at the crisis when Charles
. X. was hurled from power and gave placo
to Louis Fhillippe. No man in France
. has been so earnest, so eloquent, and so
consistent an advocate or lteimblican
principles as Jules Favra. After ihe revo
lution of ISIS he took office as
the Secretary-General of ' the : Minis
try of the Interior, but resigned his place
on uemg elected to tho Constituent Assem
bly. He officiated for some time as Under
Secretary for Foreign Affairs, and voted
for the proterntioa of MM. Louis Blanc
and Caassicli-jre for their complicity in the
insurrection of June, 1843. lie opposed
tbe Roman, expedition . in tliat year, and
refused to unite in tho vote of thanks to
Cavaignac. He proposed, a preamble to
- the French constitution, making it obliga
tory npon the state to assist all working
nxnwhohad been thrown out of employ -msut
and were unable to find other occu
pation. From "the day of tho covp d'etat
he has been at once tho most determined
and the ablest antagonist of the Emperor,
and indeed his opposition may be said to
have begun from the election of Louis Na
poleon to the Presidency. Elected as a
member of tho General Council of tho De
partments of the Loire, and .Rhone,
he refused to. take the oath to
support the -new constitution. In lSGti
he excited the liveliest sensation through
out France by his bold, defense of Orsini
for his attempt on the life of the Emperor,
. in which the. intrepid advocate proclaimed
- his unalterable attachment to free institu
- Lions. In tbe same year lie became a mem-
ber or the Uorps LegisJaiif. and soon -at
terward, ins April, 165D, Le vehemiaenlly
exposed the inconsistency of the Imperial
' Government in seeking to establish by ihe
. war with Austria that .freedom for Lorn
bardy and Venice' which 'had been over
thrown in France. Inl8G4he niado a se
vere attack on the policy of the Imperial
tjovernment in the Mexican war. Jl.

Emanuel Arago, the new Mayor of Paris,
a lawyer and politician; was born at Paris
in 1812. lie was the oldest son of Francis
Arago, and at first manifested a disposi

1832 he published a voimnn of poetry. The
authorship of some vaudevilles is asenbed
. to him, in connection with MM. AycarL
Monnais and Rochefort. 1 In 1837 he began
the practice of law and in 183'J he was one
of tho counsel for the defense of Martin
Bernard and Barbcs. In . 1848 he took a
prominent position among the revolution
ists ,and on tbe 21th FebM entere3 the Cham
ber o'Depulies and protested against the Ro
gency and demanded the dethronement of
the Orleans family. On the 27th he went
to Lyons with the title of Coniniissaty
General of the .Republic. . He was soon
elected a Representative from the E:urtini
Pyrenees, but appeared rarely in the Cham
ber. May 25, 1843, he was sent to Benin
as Minister Plenipotentiary. He inter
vened in behalf of the Polea in the Grand
Duchy of Posen,and obtained" the liberty
of Gen. Mierolawski. He protested against
the Roman expedition, and after the couv
d'etat gave tip political life, but did not
leave FranceT He resumed, later, the
practice of the law at Paris, and in 1SG7

raes, in 173fl He was admitted to the bar
in 1817, and practiced in Lis native TiiliiC.
His well-known liberalism did not prevent
his defending one of the Ministers of
Charles X, M. Gnernon Eansville; but
after a long exodium he fuinted, And Lis

of Louis Ptallipp2, and -always Toted with
the reform party. - He advocated the most
comprehensive principles of free trade.
When Count Duchatel made his memora
ble declaration that no reform could be
granted that the Government had re
solved to pat down the reform banquets
M. Cremieux said: "There is blood in this.'
Encountering Louis Philippe and his
Qaecn in the Place de la Concorde, on the
day of their flight, M. Cremieux recom
mended tneni to depart ' immediately, "non
hope for them being left," and proceed-d-to

formation of a provisional government, and
was made .Minister of Justice. . Ha is one

The Colorado Silver Mines.
Tho editor of the Central City Register
furnishes the iouowuijr items concerning
the new silver region recently discovered
northwest of Denver, and already creating
intense excitement in mining localities.
Parties are starting from Danvcr with
stocks of goods, and there seems to bo no
doubt of the permanency and richness ol
the mines. - .
"Oar reporter has jut returned from
Grand Island." "The district is fifteen miles
northwest of Central CiSy, on the western
boundary of Boulder county, and forty
mile l from Denver. About thirty ledges
have been struck, and six or eight have
been uncovered, showing true fissnra sil
ver veins, bearing pay rock crevices," from
two to five feet in width. Cariboo, Idaho,
Boulder County, Grand Island, Sovereign
People, Carter, Trojan, Monitor, Cooger,
and Comstock are among the most cele
brated mines. About five hundred men
are on the ground. Buildings are going
np rapidly. Tons of rich ores are hauled
from the mines to Prof. JJall s smelting
works, at Black Hawk daily.
."lhreo regular, coaches run from here
each day, besides many private convey
ances. Tho passengers runiber about one
hundred per day. The excitement is great
and steadily increasing. The veins so far
developed give the impression that this is
one of the richest silver regions yet dis
covered on the continent. Prof. Hall con

Cause Variegation of Leaves.
According to Mr. Morren, the difference
in the color f the varieguted plants, which
form so ornamental a feature of our green
houses, is due to a disease which is at once
contagious and capable of being transmit
ted from one Epecie3 of , plant to another,
by a kind of iaoenlatfuii. He considers
that the alteration of the cbloropbyl
(which he compares to tho red globules ot
the blood,) or green coloring tnr.tter, gives
rise to variegated leaves, which consist of
Jk'iaikture of crexii rsrts with 'ethers more
riHcfes fellow. ' "If th'eirvcoloration is p-tn-
eral, it produces death. Among the higher
order of plants only those which are para
sitic can exist when entirely deprived of
Variegation is a sign of organic disease;
the discolored or variegated portions of the
leaf hate lost their power of reducing the
carbonic acid of the atmosphere; the plant
are generally weaker, smaller, their flowers
and frait much poorer, and their power of
resisting cold diminished. Variolation
may be propagated by means of Livers,
bods or grafts, slewing that the bads
themselves are iDfected. The 6C3ds, how
ever, from variegated individuals usually
produce normal and healthy plants Har

Strange Discovery on the Potomac.
Frum te.'fi'ailiiiiKtoa (D. C Chronicle, Ar. 29.
The constant discovery of things which
appear strange, afford a study for those
who.e inclinations lead thsm to sift out the
mystojdons werking of the natural world.
The Cardiff Giant, whe mighty remains
were represented as bavin!; been dng from
the bowels of the earth, afforded an oppor
tunity to our geologicid savans to expound
to the world the result of the diagnosis and
proguofcis. b to speak, made by them 61
that wondtrinl curiosity, lach tlay brings
with it a succession of new discoveries, and
here, a'most witliin the limits of the Dis
trict of XJolumbiai a tiller of tha soil Las
found cpon his homestead a curious phe
nomenon of nntnro which should engage
tho atiention of tho sciejatilic world.
On the bank? of the Potomac, Hear Fort
Foot; lives one Win. Dart, by occupation
a farmer, and who directs tho manage
ment of a farm of some 200 acres. Upon
tut mg possession of tu;s property, some
time during the year 1869, Mr. Darr found
several Indian relics, such as stone toma
hawks, arrow Loads, etc., and subsequent
ly has found others, in common use among
Indians, which led him to the conclusion
that either an Indian settlement had at an
early day been located near this farm, or
that an Indian warfare had been .waged
Fneteonl - The eastern end of the estate is
bordered by a wooded grove f fine timber
land. Through this grove iLr. Durr had
occasion to, pass almost daily in the pros
ecution! -of his '. usual . work. . His
attention bad some time since
Le n drawn to what, from all ' ap-.
pearancts, resembled a Jarge tono, shnpod
almost in the form of a mound or a gravo.
Many times ho passed it, and seemed
drawn by some nnaccountablo means to
give it more than a passing glance. Coup
ling the fact thct . Le Liul already found
many articles of natural curiosity npon the
place with the thought-that the stone
might reveal something still stranger, he
Li.-t week made np his mind to provide
himself with the necessary tools anil nn
f.tthem the in j Uries it might reveaL On
Tuesday bo commenced operations, and
npon striking ' the stone, : found to Lis
astonishment tliat it Lad" an outer cover
ing of tho sr.me substance, wliieh
y!"liled readily to the hammer, consist
: g of a layer ot white sandstone, varj
ii from one to three inches in thickness,
"sh'-.-b, after having been removed, left a
smoother surface, andrevealed the compar
ative distinct outlines of a petrified bear,
about seven feet in length aud three feet in
heihth and thickness. After further re
search was found tho distinct ontlincs ot a
feinaio fcce and child, and over the forms
of which the Lear was a complete coveriug.
The head of the animal, from the indica
tions ia' the petrified form, had been clav
ed open, and rested between the two fore
paw, it lyuig in that position. The hind
L-gs were .evidently bjok- n off, uo further
out lino of the "grizzly" appearing.
TLo question to bo solved by philoso
pheis is: Was the mother kuiJ child killed
Ly tho bear? or was. the animal killed and
plaaod over tho remains of .tho human be
mgs as a vigilant watch ovt-r the dead?
One thing is certain, and th;.t is, that tho
bear (or what is supposed to bti such) cov
ets the entire forms of ho two bodies.
The discovery is ot such a character as
should engag9 tho attention of some of our
leading scientific ni'n, who, no doubt,
could form a conclusion r.nd enlighten
tho:;c who may have a desire for more in
fjrmtin on the mysterious mbject Tee
tarm of Mr. Durr is accessible from Fort
Foote, being but two miles therefrom.
Discoveries Made by Accident.
Not a few discoveries in tho arts and
sciences have been made or sngggested by
accident. Tho nse of the pendulum sug
gested by the vibrating of a'chandelier in
a cathedral; the power of steam, intimated
by the oscillating cf the lid of a tea-kettle;
the rtilityx)f coal gas for, light, experi
mented upon by an ordinary tobacco-pipe
of white clay; the magnifying property of
lens, stumbled npon by an optician's ap
prentice while holding spectacle glasses
between Lis thumb and fi tiger are well
known instances in proof of tho fact
. Galvanism was discovered by accident.
Professor Galvani, of Bologna, in Italy,
gave his came to the operation, but his
wife is considered as actually entitled to
the credit of the discovery. She being in
bad health, some frogs were ordered for
her. As they lay npon the table skinned,
she noticed that their limbs became strong
ly convulsed when near au electrical con
ductor. She called her husband's atten
tion to the fact ; he instituted a series ol
experiments, and in 1789 the galvanic bat
tery was indented. .
Eleven years later, with that discovery
for Lis basis, Frofessnr Allessandro Volta,
also an Italian, announced Lis discovery
of the "volatic pile." ; ' '
The discovery jof gloss-making was effec
ted by seeing the sand vitrified npon which
a fire had been kindled.
Blancort says that the making; of plate
glass was suggested by the fact of a work
man happening to break a crucible "filled
with melted glass. ; The .fluid lan under
one ot the large flagstones with wLich the
floor was paved. On raising the 6tone to
recove r the glass, it was found in the form
of a plate, such as could .not .be produced
by the ordinary process ot blowing.
Glass pearls, though among the most
beautiful, inexpensive and common orna
ments worn by the ladies, are produced by
a very singular process In -1656, a Vene
tian named Jaquin discovered that tho
scales ol a fish, called bleakfish, possessed
the property of communicating; a pearly
hue to the water. He found, by experi
menting, that beads dipped into this water
assumed, when dried, the -appearance of
pearls. Tit ,provea, however, that tho
pearly cat, when placed outside, was
easily rubbed off, and the next improve
ment was to make the beatls hollow. The
making of these beads is carried on to this
day in Venice. The beads are all blown
separately. By means of a Email tube the
iusides are delicately coated with the pea.
ly liquid, and a waxed coaling is plucei
over that It requires the scales of lonr
thousand fish to produce half a vint of the
Lquid, to which a small quantity .of sal
akiiuonia and isinglass are afterw ard added.
Lnndy Foot, tL celebrated suurPmanu

G rmany lost Alsace and Lothringis by
tho treachery nnd weakness of her rulers.
The jrst cities lost were Metz, Tull (Tonl)
and Virten ( Verdun), all three, Dtverthe
less, national French cities, through the
tr.son of the Elector Moatz of Saxony.
They were ceded to France at the peaco of
WeFtpIu-lia, atter attempts had boon mudo
by tho German Emperor to win them
back. Gc-nuany docs not desiro these
cities again; they are French in languago
and character, and as snch they may re
main. But with Alsace and German Loth
ringia, Germany will do htrbest to win
back the.-c l"st possessions. ALsaco was
lost thus: Daring the Thirty Years' War
Germa.iy was the battlefield for nil
F.nrope. Tho Catholic Emperor brought
Span is i and Slavo soldiers; the lrotost
untH w ro aided by Sweden, the Danes and
thoFrt udi. At the peaco of Westphalia
Frar.Ci' demanded, as compensation for
the aid 4river, tho entire German Alsnco
thedtirely German aud the peaco docu
ment reads: Tho Ilonse of Austria cedes
the city of Breisach, tho landgraviates Up
per and Lower Alsace, the Sandgau, aud
the jurisdiction over tho ten free cities in
Alsace, namely: Hagcnau,Coluiar,Schletts
tadt, Weisseuburg, Landau, Oherehuhicm,
Bossheim, Munrter.Kaisersberg aud Turk
heim. AH shall bo incorporated with the
crown of France, and the Empeior and
Empire (German) shall have no inrther
claims npon this land."
The ton freo cities, however, losfrtheir
freodom immediately, for in 1674, in a time
of peace. Franco took thc-ra by force ot
arms. Col mar was taken after great resist
ance; in 1C77 Labrosso plundered the city
of Wcissenburg; soon afterwards ho laid
Ilagenau iu ashcB,bnrning up with the city
women and children. Thus one city and
tho other was burned; and thus they were
made French, in spite of their desire to
remain German. The rest of Alsatia fell
a prey to tho rapacious Louis XIV., in the
year 1C81, in a time of profound peace.
Str.isburg was ouo of the List Alsatian
cities to givo in ; the French be
sieged the city with forty thousand men;
Leopold L, who then sat on the German
throne, being threatened by the Turts,
could render no assistance; and finally the
city gave np further resistance. IiOiv'g
XIV. Lad promised to allow the Strnabnrg
ers lo retain many of their liberties; but
l iif.rat acts wero to rob the Protestants
of their churches, and to give the cathedral
to the Bishop of Zab-rn, one of the great
est traitors to Lis country. Thus tho whole
of Alsnce was lost. Lothringia soon fell
a prey to Franco. Only the northeastern
portion is now inhabited by Ger
mans. In 1733 the land was given to the
Polish King Stanislaus, the father-in-law
of King Louis XV., who resided until 17G6
in N.iuzig (Nancy) and Lnnstadt (Lune
villc). After his death it fell to the French
empire. 'I bus tLe two entire provinces
were lost through treachery and force of
;:ras. The Germans wished to recover
thepo lott territories r.t the end of tha wars
of liberation, but Russia and Ausirii in
tervened in favor ot France, and only L-in-Tuu,
with a few other places, were givim
buck by tho treaty of ISIj.
G1XMANS AND KKllXCII IN ALSACE.
There thus fell into the hands ot the
French, exclusive of the French popula
tion, two hundred and thirty ftjuare Ger
man miles of nrtly German district, con
taining l,3!(,uiX German inhabitant! a
district aa L-rge as tho present Grand
Duchy ol Baden. And though over a cen
tury has gone inco AlFaee and Lolhriniu
wt-r? entirely iost to Germany, the celebrat
ed statistic ia a Bokh (in "Dr Dtutchen
Volkpzahl nnd Spnichgebiet in dm Euro
paischen Stan-ten," Berlin, 1S09,) calcu
lates that in thene lands, previously Gtr
miin, there are still living 1,318,901 Ger
mans. It is a fact thut the
Frcnoh l.irgr.ago, notwithstanding that
ever since lto7 it has been the language of
the schools, Las made no real progress.
The large cities, wLerever tLo railroads
and tho official departments are found,
have naturally been Frenchified; bnt, in
the vilisges, and especially among tho
valleys cf tho Vosges, German is still the
Lmgnago which tho people nso in the ir
own Lnnies. The ALsation peasant does
nnt speak French to his wife, and Lis
children do not know a word of it until it
is forced into thera at school. Even
in Strasbnrg, itself, as every traveller
knows, the people are half German in their
Labits. Iu the cities tbe ieeling towarls
annexation with Germany is hostilo. Iu
the valleys, among tho villages and the
peasants, tlmre is also a real disliue to
Gexmany, though tho traveler would hard
ly know that he was outside of Bavaria or
Badrn. This dislike of Germany is his
torical, Alsace was lost to Germany at a
period when tke tffocts of tho Thirty
Years' War were oppressive to Germany;
the empire Lad been cnt np into a multi
tude of petty states, tbe rulers ot which ex
ercised almost absolate power within their
own territories. The Alsatiann mado up
some of the bravest among the troops ot
Louis XIV., aud soon began to share tho
glories of their now kingdom. Under the
German Empire the Jeasant3 had been
little better than serfs; while un
der France they attained to nu
merous privileges they Lad pre
viously not known, and ia this respect
were better off than the peasants of the re
maining departments of France. Alsa -e
furnished the bravest contingent to Na
poleon's army. Klebor, Lefebreand other
renowned generals were Lor children, and
shared in tho glory of the French arms till
the fall of Napoleon. Germany during
this limo was split up into numerous prin
cipalities, aud was at tha lowest stage in
her history; whilo Napoleon had been t-ik-iug
care in the intervals of war to develop
the iudnstrios of all parts of his country.
Thus were various influences at work con
stantly estranging Akaeo from tho mother
country, producing finally tho feeling that
is now met with iu this previously German
and. X. Y. rout.

Dr. Josiah ('ampboll, who lived for many
ye-.irs on tho Western Reserve, ia Ohio,
was ftht-illfnl physician, but withal ono of
the most eccentric and absent-uimded per
sons in tho world, except Margaret, Lis
wife, and she was fully hi.s equal. One
S'inday morning the dtctor was cartcht ont
iu"a trcmendoun shower, which dicuehed
him to the skin. It sooned cleared off,
however, and Dr. Josh rode into hi.s own
yard whero Le took the drippling saddle
from Lid Lonso and let Lim go adrift into
tlie pasture. TLo saddlo he placed on a
stout log of wood which was clovated some
four feet from the ground ou two posts,
where the doctor had begun to build a
platform todry his peaches on.
After Laving got his saddle fixed so it
would dry, he took the bridle, and, putting
the bit over tho end of the log, he stretch
ed ont tho reins, and, hitching them to the
horn of tbe saddle, went in to change his
wet clothes and get breakfast. Josiah, Jr.,

Cookxxo Tomato r.s Tho tomato is . a
vegetable that is difficult to spoil, and is
generally acceptable, even when rudely
cooked. It is capable of so much chr.ng-j
in tho cooking as to- afford a pleasing vari- ,
ety. One way of stewing tora.toes is t3
chooso very ripo ones, t-kin and slice, re- '
jeering any Lard parts. Put in a pun with
salt, butter and pepper, and cook very
sl-ghtly not moro than ten micutes. An
other way is to f-tow fie tou;ato until
thoroughly soft, inb tLcrn througii a seive, '
and then cook them down- to tha desired
thickness. Butter, s.t't and pepper are the
usual seasoning: Tho?e fond of the flavor
of oniou3 will find the addition of chopped
onions while cooking to niako an excellent
variety. Baked tcrrratics are fine. Chooso
large fruit, and cut ont a easily at the stem
end; fill this with a mixture ct powdered
crackers cr bread crumb's, butter, salt or
othrr seanoning, set on a pan and bako un
til denc. Ifmanng?-! carefully, the toma
toes retain their sli?.po. Tomatoes may b
broil ad; cut them in halves crosswise, and
put them cut sidj down upon a gridiron
over tha fire. When the cut snrf'ce is
seared, turn them aud put butter, salt,.

Preparing Hops for Market.
Aside from the importance cf curing
hops properly, there is no branch cf the
culture in which tho grower should exer
cise more care than in picking. All foreign
substances, mch as leaves and stems,
should be kept from tho hops. Instead of
stripping the hops off from tha vines and
tendrils with the hands, as is too mneh the
custom, eoch hop should be picked off
separately even when ia clusters, they,
should be separated. The advantages cf
clean picking were fully experienced in the
introduction and use of foreign hops dur
ing the season of 1S'j7. The quality and
flavor ol the American hop fully f qualed
that of foreign; yet, by lack of ciosu pick
ing, our hops did not briLg as tigh prices
by five cents per pound as the foreign.
Tho rule applies to asy season, and Lo::s,
in order to sell well, should be cleanly
picked. This year them threatens to ba -great
many burrs and immature hops on
the vines at the time of harvest Great
care should be taken to instruct pickers to
reject burrs .nd hop3 jast starting, for by
mixing those with matured linif, tL? val'io
of the stock will be much impaired.. .
Craisa. Nature ni iy do her part well,
and the grower may have secured a large
crop of superior quality, yet, by Lis inex- .. ;
perience ia the art of curing tho hops may
ho mined, either by over-drying or by not
drying enough. The Lops, by bn.-; high ,
dried and scorched, lone their natural rich,
flavor and aroma, while thoso not snfii
ciently dried are liablo to heat in tha bald ,
and become worthless.
The best time to bale is on a ri?iy day,'
as the hops ara moro piiablo and pack bet-
ter. It is important that hops be put np "
in tho beft possible RbRpei ' i-'h'.ggy. loos - '

shape of the bale produced. There would? .
bo uo objection to growers exercising their
inventive powers' in the- construction 'of
hop presses, were moro regard to good .
h:iped bales ttkca into consideration.
Several patent presses, on th.3 lsver plan, ;
are iu use, the cost raneirtg froa $ld to
f 30. Every grower who can affrl it,
should have one of tbo presses. Ia dis- '
Uicts where bnt few hops aro gruwn, .it ,
would bo a good pUa for yrowus to club
