Two corporation lawyers were made
immensely rich during the closing hours
of the late congress. One received a ten

George Bancroft s library is reputed
lo be one of the best private collections
of books in the country. It contains
about 12.000 volumes, among which are
nany works in foreisn languages, and
every book in the collection has a value
aprt from its s-lling price. The books
were closely packed in the four rooms
that comprised Mr. Bincroft's workshop,
and there never was any attempt made to
Mentioning the advent of the electrie
fight in the holy land the Pall Mall Ga
zette says: A decided sensation has been
caused in Jerusalem by its introduction
into a new and flourishing flour mill late
ly started there. The building in which
the lighj has been introduced is near to the
supposed site of Calvary and close to the
Damascus Gate. It need hardly be said
that the Arabs and Jews are much puz
zled to account for a light in a lamp in
which there is no oil, and up to the pres
ent time, while gazing with wonder, have
been keeping at a respectful distance.
It is expected that Hon. William
Prentiss, of Macomb, will be a candidate
for circuit judge in that district at ths
coming judicial election, next June. The
Bushnell Record (republican) pttys him
this compliment: ,
If such is to be the case the Record is
for McDonough's candidate, Hon. Wil
liam Prentis. While thin paper is fer
ninst" Mr. Trent fs politically, and be
lieves be is tugging at the wrong end of
the tariff question, and all that, it would
sooner see him elected judge than any
other democrat it knows of. Mr. Pren
tiss is an able lawyer, a man of one ju
dicial mind, and a gentleman and a
scholar withal. He would grace and re
flect credit upon the bench.
Tub ex-speaker of the house of re pre
aentatives sailed on Saturday for Europe,
whither he is accompanied by the good
wishes of all his personal friends, includ
ing many of his political enemies. The
first report about Mr. Reed's projected
excursion was that be intended to divert
himself by a systematic study of parlia
mentary methods at the various capitals
of the Old World where constitutional
government obtains. The New York
Tribune now announces, apparently with
authority, that Mr. Reed will not haunt
the strangers' galleries of the parliaments
of Europe, but will proceed directly to
Italy and remain there during a vacation
devoted to purely esthetic and archaeolog
ical recreation. Surrounded for several
months by the crumbling remains of a
once haughty and powerful ciyilization,
the ex-speaker will so far accustom him
self to the spectacle of magnificance in
decay and insolent authority brought to
the dust, that upon his return to Wash
ington at the beginning of the Fifty-sec
ond congress h? will be able to contem
plate with equanimity the ruins of the re
publican pirty in the house of representatives.

monies; also an appendix by way of a
critique of the memoirs and a
personal tribute to General Sherman
by Hon. James G. Blaine, Webster Co.
warn the public against spurious lives of
Gen. Sherman, lately written and usually
most unreliable. They say that one es
pecially is being sold on the strength of
its being written by Gen. O. O. Howard,
but the general repudiates the statement
that be is the author of the book. Jhe

is a blood or constitutional disease, and
in order to cure it you have to take inter

is no quack medicine. It was prescribed
by one of the best physicians in this
country for vears. and is a regular pre
scription. It is composed of the beet
tonics known, combined with the best
