A letter from a high source in Madrid
says: King Alfonso has not recovered from
the deep melancholy into which the death
of his wife immersed him. He has made
elfurts to throw off his grief, but they have
been unavailing, and lie daily remains for
hours in profound seclusion. It is feared,
from certain obscure hints he has.droppcd,
that he contemplates following the example
of his ancestor, Charles V., of abdicating
thu crown and retiring to a monastery to
spend the remainder of Ids days in prayer
and self-mortification. Hu appears to take
pleasure only in the company of liis sister,
to whom he is greatly attached.

AOITATION IN ITALY ENDED,
As intimated in theso dispatches some
days ago, the agitation in Italy is found to
have no substantial basis, and is rapidly
subsiding. It is believed at the legation
hero that it w ill soon cease completely.
The movement, such as it was, was wholly
confined to the Republicans and a few of the
opposition politicians, and the Catholics
had nothing whatever to do with it. It is
understood that after the publication hy
the German government of a correspond
ence lx'tween the popo and the emperor and
the crown prince, negotiations were re
sumed, and that they have proceeded so far
t J 1 fit little remains in the way of an amic
TIIK PAPAL NUNCIO
at Munich, who is shortly to repair to Ber
lin, is understood to bo charged witli thu
mission of completing these negotiations.
They do not embrace the rejiort of the Falk
laws, hut they do involve such an adminis
tration of the enactment as will enable the
church to permit its prlesU and bishop to
pay nominal oliedienco to them. In other
words the laws aro to Iw allowed to fall lu
to disusii and not lie unforced.

Bradley's Expedition, on the Little
Missouri, July 21!, via Dead wood, July
20. General Sheridan arrived here Wednes
day and left Thursday. He is making an
extended tour of inspection of the various
xsts of this department, with a view to
learn all the Indians news, nlso to decide
ti 1 kii the loca'.ity for the new military post
to be built near the Black Hills. So far he
believes Sitting Bull mid his Indians will
remain over the British border, and that the
Bannocks will soon he subdued. The new
Hist is likely to be on the east side of the
Black Rills, near the mouth of the creek.
From Harpor'a Weekly.
Gen. Grant is to be nominated, not as the
representative of a policy of administration,
but as a savior society. He is not to carry
out measures that have been argued before
thu people, and which have been approved
hy them at thu polls, but is to protect us
against anarchy and the impending disso
lution of social order. But if he be the one
man indispensable to our continued peace
ful national and social existence, we must
keep him in the position of savior as long as
heaven graciously spares him. We can not
ufford to take the risk of the dissolution of
society at the end of four years; and if we
cun spare him at the end of four years we
are not in any danger of such dissolution,
and his nomination is not necessary.
The reasons urged for the nomination of
Gen. Grant are typified in a picture of a man
on horseback withstanding a host of anar
chists. Those who do not think that this is
the situation, who do not believe that the
American government is on the edge of
chaos, and who, therefore, are not desirous
of summoning a dictator those who are
not yet tired of free popular institutions,
and who know that agitation is the atmo
sphere of liberty will naturally oppose the
call for a savior of society. We do not do
Gen. Grant the injustice of supposing that
he lias authorized this nonsense, or that it is
especially agreeable to him. Hu has always
shown himself to hu an officer loyal to the
laws, and this presentation of hint as the
imperial hope of America is excedingly com
ical. There is, however, a serious side to it,
and we beg these heady Republicans to re
member this: That the chief and vital ob
jection to the Republican party in thu
uiinds of many most patriotic and intelli
gent citizens is the conviction that it has
come to regard itself as the country and thu
rightful government, and to consider oppo
sition to itself as treason, if not 11 wrong of
fered to human nature, and that consequent
ly it holds all means of perpetuating its
power to be permissible if not imperative.
This conviction is immeiis"ly strengthened
hy the ground taken by Republicans for thu
nomination of Gen. Grant. That ground is
that he alone can save us from de
struction. Even' honest, honorable and
patriotic American rejects with scorn such
an assumption. We have laughed at Dem
ocrats who argtio that Gen. Grant has the
ambition of Louis Napoleon, and enjoys
royal dinners because he wishes to iiu a
king. But here is a Republican paper
which says of his nomination. "We have
reached the point where n firm, steady
hand is needed to guide the nation." That
is the tone of Louis Napoleon's toadies. Thu
duty of an American president is to exe
cute thu laws, not to guide tho nation thin
ly. Those who vociferously, and upon
such grounds, demand thu nomination of
Gen. Grant are doing their utmost to extin
guish all hope of Republican success.
REMINISCENCES OF VIDOCQ.
A curious letter of Vidoco, tho lamous
French detective, lias just been unearthed.
Ho writes in it to a friend in tho country
that, having been a widower for some years,
he wishes to tlm I a homo during Ins declin
ing days, lie wouiii iiKc, lie says, to tln.l,
in a pleasant and healthy locality, a house
hold of (jitiet middle-aged folks that would
receive linn; or elsu to lind a wife 40 or 45,

WRY A BOOTBLACK SOLD HIS "KIT.
From tho Detroit Free Prom,
It surprised tho shiners and newslxtyg
around the post oflico the other day to seer
'Liiiipy Tim" come among them in a quiet
way, and to hear him say:
"Boys, I want to sell my kit. Here'
two brushes, a hull box of blacking, a good
stout box and the outfit goes for two
"Goin' away, Tim!" queried one.
''Not 'ziu-tiy, liys, but I want a quarter
the nwfullest kind just now."
"dom' on a scursiour asked another.
"Not to-day, but 1 must have a quarter,"
One of thu lads passed over tho change
and took tho kit, and Tim walked straight
to tho counting room of a daily paper, put
down his money, and said:
"I guess 1 can write it you 11 give mo a
With slow moving lingers he wrote a death
notice. It went into the paper almost as ho
wrote it, but you might not have seen it.
Died Litul Ted of scarlet fever; aiged
three yeres. Funeral to-morrer; gon up to
heaven ; left olio bruther.
"Was it your brother!" asked the cushicr.
Tim tried to braco up, but he could not.
The big tears came up, his chin quivered,
iind hu pointed to thu notice on the counter
"I I had to sell my kit to do it, 1 but
hu h had his arms aroim1 my neck when
hu d died !"
Hu hurried away home, but tho news
went to thu Isiys. and they gathered in u
group and talked. Tim had not been homo
an hour belbru a barefoot lioy left tho kit
on the doorstep, and in the box was a
bouquet of (lowers, which had been pur

A DEGRADED SON-IN-LAW.
From the Sun Francisco Pout.
Revenge is a degrading passion, undoubt
edly, but now and then we hear of a case
with which we can manage to sympathize
a little. A young surgeon in Baltimore:
suffered under thu worst case of mother-in-law
on record for eleven years. Finally
the family autocrat died and the memory
of his wrongs goaded tho surgeon to the
perpetration of a (leep design. Instead of
really leaving thu body out at the cemetery,
he had it secretly sent in again to a
dissecting class, ainl shortly after
ward the nicely prepared and mount
ed skeleton of his former foe was hanging;
in his study closet. Of course his wife
knew nothing of this, and now, whenever
the latter goes out to strew flowers upon the
supposed grave of her parent, he locks all
the doors, jerks the old lady down from her
peg, takes the servant girl on his lap, and
together they eat peaches and shy the stones
at their osseous enemy. Tho icrform:uiee
conclude with dragging tho extinct old
party's remains around thu room by one leg,
and banging her into the closet again head
first. The heartless wretch even says "she
looks pretty much as she did in life, too, ex
cept that her jaw is wired shut."
TYPE-SETTING IN JAPAN.
It must be no joko to be employed in
Japanese printing-otlice. In our town and
most other countries of thu world, except
China and Japan, the language is written by
means of an alphabet of sepanitu letters.
Among the Celestials and their next-door
neighbors, on tho other hand, each word hast
a distinct character. Tho compositors dif
ficulties in either instance are obvious al
most at a glance. In setting up this note
hu has thu letters conveniently arranged lie-
fore him in what is known as thu "case."
But iu Japan, according to an Americaa
contemporary, a full front ot type com prises'
ulLOOii characters, ot winch 0,000 are incon
stant use, and for 2,000 more there are fre
quent calls. Instead of being compactly
arrayed lieforo him, tho type is disixwud
about thu composing room on racks, and the
untoriunato composer lias to wander up and
down thu room setting his "copy" and
stretching his legs, though he would prob
ably be quitu villing to'dispenso with the
greater part of his enforced exercise. It is
for this reason that it is impossible to apply
the system of single-character words te
telegraph, that inestimable boon to civiliza
tion is apparently unavailable to the inhabi
tants of Japan and China.

organ of tho whole human system, as it con
