Well, I commenced to tell you of some

grasshoppers some years are so numerous

We bavo wind storms in some locali
ties, blowing up, in dry weather, clouds
of sand and dust, lasting usually about
21 hours. Tlicfo winds, in localities
shielded by tho mountains, are never felt
to anv extent. 1 believe we hove had
only two of theso winds hero where I
iivo for about u year past.
Now, iu regard to tho society. I'am
Korry to tuy that it is not what could bo
desired. In tuc urst place wo nave a
very mixed society, composed of Amen
cans, Moxicans, Indians, Germans, Irish,
Italians, 1' rcucli. Almost every Lation
of Kuropo is represented here. Such
being the caso, we could not expect to
find that harmony of (ecling and social
rtnto that exists iu older communities,
though thcro aro many persons hero of
culturo and refinement ; yet I think there
is more scllishness among the.Arocreicans
than thcie ought to bo. We have in the
city ono Roman Catholic church, (the
Catholic cathedral now building is to
cost 8100,000) : episcopal, Congrega
tional and Methodist churches. No other
denominations have church edifices,
though several others bavo preaching. A
publio school house just completed cost
$20,000. There are good publio schools
generally throughout tho Blatc.

I have written in a disconnected way
what has occurred to mo that might in

find to bo just about the clima'e to suit
me, and expect to make it my home while
I live, yet my advico to you, as well as
others, would bo to como and seo for
yourself. As I know that everybody can
not seo alike, and what suilH one, another

A retired clergyman sends tho "Din
bury News" an account of a little affair
that happoncd in his place. It appears
that tliero was a young woman, a lino
hpiritod girl, cngaicd at a wash tub, op
posite an open door. Just behind her
was a young man, as is generally tho
oiso, and in tho yard was an old buck
that was allowed tho freedom of the
promise, which is not always tho caso,
. i.j ,. .... u'oii ki.
came up to the door and looked in, and
tho yonng man going clofe behind tho
young wstnan, poiuted his fiuger (straight
at the duck, and ino old leilow recogniz
iogat once tho pressing character of this
mute invitation, put down his head and
dashed forward; and tho miserable man
slopped one side and fled, and tho young
woman, all unconsoious of the arrange
ments, recdived the awful shock without
warning, and passed o cr the. tub, and
the air for an instant appeared to bo full
of slippers, and wot clothes, and hot
water and suds. And the next minute
that goat cams flying oat of that door at
dreadful speed, bald the whole longlh
of bis spine, and with wild look in bis
eye. And for an hour afterward ho stood
behind the baru, scratching his chin, and
trying tu recall all tho circumstances in
tbti u'uforttlDste affair.

A eiarj was recently blessed by aft si-
dition to his household. The next morn

open. All wcro nuictly watching the

Tho following was perpetrated on
Henry Clews by Jerome the other day,
at the Union Club : Clews was .-peaking,
as bo always is, of his being a selfmado
nun, in the presence of Jerome, when
the latter gravely said to him : ''Did
you say, sir, you wcro a selfmado man ?"
"Yes, sir," replied .Clews, undoubtedly
expecting a word or two about the great
credit ho had dune himself, Ac; but he
was sorely diappointed, for Jerome s next
words were, as ho rubbed his hand over
Clew' bald bead, "Well, then, if you arc
a selfmado man, why in the world didu't
you stick in a few moro hairs?"
