Tlhe Now York Herald, of the l"7th, has
the following remarks on the health, crops
and atmospheric phenomena of the sumn
nler
During no summer, probably, within
the imemory of the living generation has
this country enjoyed more uninterrupted
good hea:lt than tihe present. In the mil
tropolis tihe iiortality returns show :a nmost
gratifying diminutiol of ' deaths ec::el week.
fromu the return: of last year andi the pre
vious ya:trs; while thr1h glhout tflie enire
cotllitr', froml Nho'th to l Sottii,not a single
ca:;ie to epidemic disense of any kinld hal.
occurredl. 'Th'ii is certainly vtry remirk
able, antd is soimethinig to feel grattiul Iir.
In like manner the clops were in.ver beflo e
- got! all over the contlilent; and in coni
nection with thiese: cir in-lttlnce.4 it is a
curious fact that we never bell re had pre
sented to us so many atlmospheric pheno
mena as this year.
The air seems heavily charged with
electricity ; tihe Inort.lerln lights have beein
freque:tly ilulminiatiig thle skies with
singular brilliancy in v ;rious q .uai ters; ter
rific tornadoes have swept over the face of
the land : thmunder stormns hate becen hie
quent and violent ; a comret is at irsent
visible in California ; we have had an
eclipse of the sun, visible nearly all over
tihe country; and, to crown all, tihe greatest
meteor that was ever seen has visited us.
In short, we have this year the best health,
the finest crops, lthe heaviest tornadoes and
the biggest meteor ever known.
What connection theme natural pllheno
mona may have with the health and the
crops of the country we leave to t lie learned
pundits to discover, and it is a very inter
esting subject for investigation.
A' City Treasury " Dead Broke."
While the legislative commission at Phil
adelphia, or that portion of it which did
not think it proper or advisable to resign,
is solemnl, sitting and arranging plans
fbr sp ,dinig betweetl'two and three mill

money, to furnish enormous and extrava
gant public buildings, the city treasurer is
unable to find money eno.ghi from this
year's assessment to pay a live dollar war
rapt due for, labor or other service to the
city. The ordinary expeiises tit the gov
