A WRITER in Blnckwood's Magazine
conclusively calculates that if tho pub
lic debt of tho civilized world goes on
increasing at lis present rate, in a quar
ter of a century tho entire revenues of
all thc nations will bo insu (Vicient to

Hie American team competo for tho
Elcho shield at Wimbledon. Tho dis
patch says they aro willing . tu iiavo a
special match, to bo shot between tho
Americans and eight selected from thc
(hrco English teams.
IT is feared that tho new direct
cable is a failure. Though some time
has elapsed since its completion was
announce!, it cannot bo learned that
any Hignuls have been transmitted.
This would provo a great misfortune, as
tho other eau hardly do moro than half
tho business offered.
Tin-: government of tho little kingdom
of Greece, being without money, has
hit upon an oxcellent means of defray

Clich of its legations abroad, informing
the heads of those legations that they
aro at liberty to continue to manage
affairs as heretofore, provided they do
it nt their own expense !
FRENCH journalists maintain that
England nm*t raise a bigger army if

Illinois, tho champion pigeon slayer,

man matched to shoot with him, and
now, of course, he challenges all Eng

Tnk GuelphS mid ?hibbelinos of tho
Cherokee nation have succeeded in get
ting up twenty-seven murder cases,
which were recently tried before the
United States district court nt Fort
Smith, ark. As a result of tho trial,
seven of tho semi-civilized will be
banged in a batch on tho third day of
September. This will be tho largest

of tho thirty-three Sioux ludiacs At
Mankato, Minn., in 18G2.
THE recent abrogation of three
articles of tho constitution of tho Ger
man empire which brings tho Bom an
Catholic church in Germany in com
plete subjection to the government, and
the severity of the Falck laws passed
in 1S7H are showing results in the flight
of German ecclesiastics to the United
States. Tho telegraph announces thc
arrival in New York of a largo numbor
of priests and nuns, who propose to
settle in Illinois, where Bismarck and
Dr. Falck can not curtail their ccoloai
astica! freedom. Tho Prussian ecclesi
astical hills, in cflact, banish every
Roman Catholic from Germany.
TUB ravages of the small-pox aro in
creasing in New York, nod it is also re
lier I ed that thero is greater danger than
.lsiial this summer of a visitation of
yellow fever. This disease is said to "he
racing with great virulence throughout
tho West Indies, and many cares have
been takeu to Key West, Fla. Tho
season has been peculiarly adapted to
ibo spread of yellow fever in Cuba, ns
there hove been none of tho usual cold,
heavy galen called " Northers," which
have acted aa n check to the spread of
the disease. Vessels aro now duo at
New York from ports where yellow fever
is known to be raging.
Tun San Francisco Chronicle predicts
a heavy Italian immigration into tho
United States, aal a consequent acces
sion to tho number of organ-grinders
and plaster-cast vonders. Hitherto tho
Italians have been pouring into Uruguay
. 'ind tho Argcntm? Republic, tho Italian
population there now numbering n half
million semis, and constituting the chief
business element. Tho unsettled state
of affairs, kowover, in these countries,
has led tho emigrants to turn their at
tention to tho United States. And th?>
Chronicle citee. tho fact that un Italian
agent has recently been buyJncr large
tracts of laud in California for his coun
trymen to settle upon during this year.
THE postoflico department is much

congress, at ouco endeavor to secure
tho repeal of the law in rolation to

mails. Tho law regulating tho pay
ment of postage, will, however, bo re

though the rate haB been reduced, tho
department now receives as much as it
did'tvheu it had; it higher rate, but col
lected tho postugo at tho office of de

Mexicans on the Rio Grande nro at
loggerheads about tho arrest and incar
ceration of Cortina. Tho dispatches
iudieato a high degree of exeiteinoufc in
Matamoros, which doubtless extends
measurably throughout tho stato of
TamaulipuG. Tho capturo of their
leader is regarded is an unduo inter
ruption to their smuggling operations
bythopeoplo of Matnmoras anti vicin
ity, and President Lerdo evidently has
an insurrection on his hands which will
require tho preBcnco of moro troops.
Matanmras, where tho troubles now
center, is immediately opposite Browns
ville, Texas, and contains a population
of about 12,000. As an effort will bo
made to carry Cortina to Vera Cruz, a
conflict between tho citizens and tho
Mexican troops is probable.
DISPATCHES from the Black Hills
geological expedition indicate that near
Hamey's Peak gold has really been
found in paying quantities. Thu cor
respondent of tho New \ork Tribune
accompanying the expedition writes
that, after the party entered the unex
plored region from the east, they struck
a ? granite formation and gold-bearing
quartz^ besides finding gold in flakes in

ton ?nd Dr. Lam-, of tho government
expedition, arc said to bri sidisfied that
gold exists thero. Whether it will be
found in sutlioient quantities to fill tho
pockets of tho thousands who uro wait

difference. Tho people will go, in spite
of restrictions, and possess the land on

A month after his arrival, he headed 1
a rnbscription list with tho sum of 1

Count Porragi humanely took upon
himself tho task of soliciting the. sub
scriptions, and, incredible as it niny
seem, collected the sum of ?5,000 in
about twenty days !
One morning Perragi suddenly dioap- :
penrod. Suspicions having arisen, the
police authorities were instructed to :
lind out M'mo Cartenagg. But, alas
for human credulity ! the police swore,
by tho beard of Mohammed, that Ma- .
dame was a myth, r.nd the Orescent i
City knew her not ! Done, by Jove ! 1
Done to tho tune of .?.'5,000 ! Thus end? ;
the hrrt act in this strange dramu. \
Now for the second net, Not far from

Opposite to this extensivo depot of pre
cious stones stood tho pharmacy of Dr.
Jacob Valpnss. Five minutes' walk :
frota theso two establishments stands !
tho Hotel do l'Europe.
lu the latter placo, M'mc Estello
Doorest and her sickly pon, Albert,
had hired a magnificent snito of rooms i
for tho winter. Sho was a quite
melancholy sort of a lady, and about '?
thirty. AU her thoughts scorned cen
tered in her boy. But oh ! how Rur
passingly lovely sho was ! They say
thar, the waiters of the Europe made
tillite a handsome thing out of her by
allowing sundry "sparks" to peep nt
madame through the key-hole, as she
sat in her elegant, morning costume at
breakfast, She paid her bills regularly,
saw no visitors, and received nu letters.
So much for madame.
M. Dograuti junior (tho jeweler),
was a rather fast young fellow, very
rich, and very fond- of horses. The
older brother, at this time, was absent
. Dr. Jacob Val pass was a mau of
thirty-two, and considered very clever.
His father had left him BOIUO contider
able property, but, as bo was passion-1
ately devoted to his profession, he still
continued in practice. Wo have now
suflie.icutly describid tho four principal
actors in tho drama.
It was after len o'clock one night,
and Dr. Valpass sat in his study. A
person requested to seo him. A tall,
deeply veiled lady entered. Dr. Vnl
pups politely offered her a chair, and
asked her the nature of her busiuess.
With a deep sigh, she throwback her
veil, and tho doctor's weaker human
half surveyed that dazzling beauty in
bewilderment. She told her story in
a qjtict, brief manner. ?r'ho had an only
son on whom sho doled passionately.
Ho was subject to lits of monomania.
And, most extraordinary as it miyht
seem, his desires to lay in the fact that
nothing but diamonds placed about
him would satisfy his cravings. She
had consulted tho best medical men in
Europe, and they prescribed chango of
scene. She had traveled a great deal,
but without any.salutary effect upon
her hov. Sho hat! be en advised lo con
sult Dr. Valpass, and, as her son had
just recovered from ono of those pe
riodical li's, she earnestly requested
him to visit her at tho Hotel do l'Eu
Dr. Valpnss took charge of this curi
ous caso, and soon becamo very inti
mate with Madame Dcorest, To bo
brief, poor Valpass fell deeply in love,
mid a month after their acquaintance he
proposed to her, and was accepted.
Thus steed matters in Deeembti, 1851,
and so closes the second act.
Tho last scene onens on tho 1th day ol
January, 1852. Dr. Vrdpnss was put
ting on his gloves preparatory to enter
ing his cai ringo, when ho saw his afb
anced brido rm liing madly toward him.
ne ran out and met her.
" What is ttio matter. Estollo ?"
"Oh, ho is worse ? Oh, como to him !
como to him !" cried tho frantic
" Ono moment ; step into tho onriago;
I wili bc with you immediately."

of Messrs. Degranti,

"But doctor, thcso aro worth mil

" Give mo pen, ink and paper. Hen
? my note of hand for tho articles.
How much aro they worth ? "
" Afc a rough calculation, live mil
ions of francs."
"Very woll ; hero you aro. Now,
?nick, the articles."
Ton minutes after tho doctor and tho
n?dame reacbed tho hotel, and found
klborfc in tho arms of two domestics.
Tho medical mau took chargo of tho
?rolling boy and disniiescd tho servants.
110 drew forth his treasures and placed
diem about the boy. It was wonderful !
The boy danced with glee, clapped his
[muds, and gradually became pacified.
He thou slowly left the room with down
last head. The enraptured mother
[lung her?e*lf into the arms of her savior,
iud, with tears, in her beautiful eyes,
I banked him from her h ?art. Then fol

The facts of tho two murders com
mitted by this boy aro only too well
known. For months an immense press
uro baa been brought to bear on tho
governor and members of tho council,
by parties in favor of meeting out to

i. e. haugiug instead of commutation
of senteueo to imprisonment for life.

to tho public have been given at the

causo whatever. Ho did not rob them
of even n pin ; he had no qunrrol
with them, whereby his paasiouB might
have been excited; he suffered no re
vengeful feelings towards tho parents of
tho victiniB. Tho children and their
faniilies were perfect strangers to bim.
No cause for these murders aro known.
He was visited at Ibo jail where ho
has been confined sinco Iris conviction
by members of tho council, who eon
versed with liim on the subject of hi"
crimes. They found him to bo on llh
uhiudly bright and intelligent lad ; his
answers were given with promptness
and decision ; there was no wavering or
hesitation in them, but right to thc
point. When asked how many murders
nc had committed his quick reply was,
"Two, sir !" Ho was asked why ho
killed tho little boy, aud replied that
"ho did not know." He said that "ho
was standing with others looking at the
working o? n fire engine, when ho
noticed a pretty lookiug littlo boy
standing near. Ho suddenly asked the
little fellow if bo wouldn't take a walk
with him, and upon consenting, ho was
led across marshes a distauco of at least
a mile, when suddenly he felt a flutter
ing in his head and mechanically lie
took his pocket knife from his pocket,
rapidly opened it, and stabbed, stabbed,
stabbed it into bia littlo victim, having
no consciousness of what ho was doing
at tho time, and never that day fully
ioaliziug what ho had done. That in
all the time he was walking with tho
boy ho did not have it in his mind to
inj uro him, his only notion in having
him with him was for companionship,
and it was only when suddenly seized
with this uncontrollable impulso that
he did tho. deed, and it all occurred
within II minute. Tho boy was a pretty
child and that was what attracted him

- At tho Central market yesterday a
)oDg-hnired man mounted a box and
commcnoed : "My friends, who hath
redncBB of eyes ? The drunkard. Who
bath woo ? The drunkard. The Lord
sent us pure cold water. There's noth
ing like w-." At that moment a boy
who was throwing water from tho gar
dcn-hoRo used around there aooidently
turned the stream against the stranger's
bnck, mid ho jumpod down and said it
was a enso of assault, and ran after a
warrant. He said that no human being
could throw cold water over him with
out being made to suffer for it.-Detroit

Ono of tho great orrors of tho age is, wo
mcdicato the body too mnoh. More
.persons aro destroyed by eating bio
much. Gluttony kills moro thar, drunk
orinoss in civilized society. Tho best
gymnasium is a wood yard, a clearing,
or a corn field. A hearty langh is known,
tho world over, to be a health^promoter;
it elevates the spirit, enlivens tho circu
lation, and is marvelously contngooos in
a good sense. Bodily activity and
bodily health aro inseparable. If the
bowels ar? loso, lio down in bed, remain
there and eat nothing until you are well.
Tho three best medicines in the world
aro warmth, abstinence and repose.

more favor. 'Can I moil this letter
hero?" " Why of courso." "Gani?
Hero, give me your hand, young man 1
I've lived, around and about for over
forty yenrs, and I've seen hard times.
