TUE French utilize chicken feathers
in the following way, which is pro
nounced a decided improvement ou tho
old method : The plume portion of tho
feathers are cut from tho stem by means
of ordinary hand scissors. These are
placed in quantities in a course bag,
which, when full, is dosed and anb
jected to a thorough kneading with the
hands. At the end of live minutes the
feathers disaggregated are felted to
gether, forming a down almost homo
geneous and of great lightness. It is
Baid to be lighter than natural eider
down, because tho latter contains tho
ribs of the feathers, which gives extra
weight. About one and six-tenths troy
ounces can bo obtained from ono pullet,
and it pells in Paris for about two dol
lars a pound.
A FARMER boy in Ohio, observing a

following them uniformly to thc oppo
' site end, returning in the same rnaunor
over tho next five rows. They contin
ued in thia course until they had ex
plored the greater portion of the fiold.
Tho lad, suspicious that thoy wore pull
ing up tho corn, (ired into the Hock,
killing but ono of them, and ho pro
ceeded to examino tho ground. In the
wliolo space over which t icy had trav
eled, ho found but one stalk of corn dis
turbed. This was nearly scratched oui

vine bugs, and ono hundred chinch
bugs, but not a singlo grain of corn.

Stewart's Saratoga Investments.
A correspondent writes from Sara
toga to the Philadelphia Times : A. T.
Stewart is just now our biggest liou,
and a great sensation he is creating
here just at present among thu local
merchants. Yon seo, after spending
8400,000 on his big hotel, tho Grand
Union, he found that ho had two ele
gant stores to let. With characteristic
enterprise he fitted thom np in elegant
stylo, and is moving in a stock of goods.
Now the storekeepers he~e, notwith
standing that this very day should re
mind them that ours is n fri o country,
declare that A. T. S. has no business
to come here to undersell them nnd
rule their trade, but tho big merchant
does not see tho t hing in that light, and
laughs at tho terribly exercised mer
chants. Stewart is indeed a remark
able man. He is a little, thin, wiry
fellow, with a palo, thoughtful face,
light blue, reflective eyes, reddish, gray
short whiskers, and very quiet in mini
ner. He dresses in black, and goes
peering into every nook and coi ner of
the storo in a way that makes his em
ployes very nervous. When talking he
invariably twirls his eyeglass on his
linger or pats tho palm of his hand
with a black glove. When you speak
to him ho looks at you searchingly for
a moment before he replies, as if to
read you through, a habit that arises
from hill wonderful faculty of reading
human nature. Ho is not so serious
as ho lins been painted : on tho con
trary, he is fond of a joke, and yester
day, while superintending the arranging
of the goods m his store, he frequently
laughed at tho idaaa presented by his
managing mau. He carno up on Friday
night and passed the entire day in his
store. Indeed, I Raw him there ns late
ni half past eleve* o'clock at night.
That is how he got rich, by attending
to his business in person. Stewart
bought tho Union a few years ago for
8050,600. Since thou ho has spent as
much more lipon the structura in enlarge
ments and improvements, until now it
is the most extensive nnd perfect car
avansary in tho world. Ho and his
wife occupy a suite of three rooms in
the hotel directly over the main en
trance. They have been finely but
not lavishly fitted up for him, each
window being provided with a little
balcony, nicely shaded by thc fine old
trees that extend along the entire front
of the hotel, airs. Stewart is a mild,
unpretentious lady, with an exceedingly
amiable countenance, nnd conversc-i cor
dially with her friends. They are, in
fact, the most undemonstrative eouplo
here and ono would hardly imagine, to
judge from their manner, t.hnt they
were, with one or two exeoptions, the
wealthiest people in America. Mr.
Stewart says he intends expending a
further largo sum on tho improvement
and enlargement of tho Union next
winter. It is ono of his pet projects,
and he proposes giving it corresponding
Fish Culture in Tennessee.
Tho cultivation of shad and salmon
in our rivers is an experiment. If it
succeeds it will bo a great benefit to
our people, but whether it succeeds or
fails, wo know that bass and jack will
flourish in our waters, and au effort
shonld be made to obtain a legislative
apporpriation for their propagation.
Nothing can be dono in this direction,
however, until the professional fisher
men who depend upon what they catch
for their subsistence, learn that nil
game laws which prevent tho extermin
ation of gnmo fish TC in their own
interest ; and that instead of trying to
evade, it will pay then better to prose
cute every violation. For instance,
just after the war, all tho creeks and
rivers, were swarming with bass, or
trout, and jack, and tho fishermen sold
them readily at fifteen and twenty
cents per pouud. A few fishermen
placed gill nets at thfl mouths of tho
creeks and tho consequence is that
scarcely any bass or jack liavu been
brought to tho market hore this year.
Nothing is seen but catlish and drum
which find a slow sale at eight cents
Thus tho fishermen cnn see that tl.'.o

for tho professional fishermen. All
that is heccessary for success is to con
vince tho fishermen of this fnot, which
their own experience in this country
has already done, and they will be

INDIA RUBBER SPIRITS.
77/.: &W<?VM Departure nf Min Kuli! Kin-i from
Brooktun Soci? ';/.
Mrs. Jennie Holmes, tko materializ
ing medium of Philadelphia, has re
ceutly resumed operations iu Brooklyn,
and tho last issue o? thu Spiritualist
Banner of Eight contains an account of
her devious and wicked ways, as ob
served by tlie Brooklyn society of spir
itualists. A committee of the society
spends six evenings ni her seances,
furnishing her with tho necessary
cabinet, at tho society's hall, on Fulton
avenue. The "conditions"'were simply
a muslin bag, loosely stitched together,
which the medium drew around her,
and its mouth was tied over her
head. Then she was seated in tho
cabinet, and put out the arm of John
King through a bole in the door.
Then she put out his other arni, and
then his india-rubber face, with its
black whiskers, well known to Philadel
phia fame. Thou she put out Katie's
face, hoing her own, namely ; but no
one fouud it out at the first seance. At
the second seance two of alfi. Holmes'
black curls bung down over Katie's
face, and this "gave rise to tho sus
picions." Therefore the bag was ex
amined, and was found to have trick
seams which opened and closed by
pulling a thread. It was sup gos ted to
airs. Holmes at tho third seance that it
would be woll if tho lady present could
bold her hands while tho manifesta
tions went on. Auother lady olVj-red to
pin her to thc door carpet tu sro if
Katie would walk forth materialized
under those conditions. Mrs. Holmes
declined to alford these aids to awak
ened thought. An extremely skeptical
geutlemi n observed that John King
did not walk forth, aud that Ins india
rubber face had no breath in its nos
trils, while lovely Katie on the other
band, always came forth iu a white
muslin bag, and had a warm human
breath. At the sixth seance, therefore,
Mrs. Holmes was sought to he searched
by a committee of ladies desirous of
discovering spirit-faces concealed about
ber persou. I hit to that she demurred,
and being disencumbered o? her muslin
bag for the last time, became suddenly
faint and must have air. Therefore
she tottered from thr> room very sick ;
but the fresh air immediately beyond
the door so revived her that she ran
away like the wiud, and never was
beard of in that place again. " Where
fore," concludes the committee iu its
report, "wo think she was a fraud"-or
words to that effect.
Von Moltke on West Point.
I am asked why neither side in the
civil war in Amoru a produced a very
distinguished general. Even their re
spective partisans hardly claim auy
leader of transcendent genius. Iii so
long a war, and where so many men
fought, does it not imply a lack of
military talent in the Americans? I
answer, no. The truo reason was be
cause their field of selection was so
limited No oflieer could hopo to
attain thc supreme command of their
armies unless be had been a student at
their military academy, called West
Point, on tho Hudson riv"r,?.. thr
State of New York. Tko mincer of
these students, deserving as they might
be, was ami is extremely limited.
The southerners adopted the same per
nicious system of exclusiveness, as
many of these West Point ollicers had
joined their side, and their president
bad also been at tho academy. It was,
perhaps, fortunate for the north that
tho south did not seek for talent among
the mass of its people. It is said, I
know not how truly, that the genius of
a civilian, Ericsson, by the invention of
a monitor, alone saved the northern
navy from destruction.
It is evident that tho chance of ob
taining a distinguished general in
creases as the field of selection widens,
and diminishes as it contracts.
In our army every soldier may aspirt
to the snpreme command, but in the
American armies the line of delimit
ation was drawn as deeply as between
thc former slaves and their masters.
Tho volunteer who represented tin
great bulk and strength of tho people
might, indeed, attain distinction in a
subordinate position, but the highest
place of all was forbidden. In readiug
tho records of the American civil war,
it really appears as if the whole contest
was between a few ollicers of West
Point, and the mighty heart of tho
nation bad never throbbed. This uris
tocratic system, which tho Americans
still follow, was formerly thc practice
in all European armies. In thc revel
ution of 171)3, Carnot, tho French min
ister of war, first abandoned it, and wi
For the sake of example, and not.
binding ourselves to any exactness of
ligures, except that tho one is very
small, and its opposite, with which it is
compared, very large, let no suppose
the number o? Weit Point olliccn? to !>;:
five hundred, and the number of Prus
sian soldiers ii vu hundred thousand.
Evidently, as wo have a furn! a thou
sand larger to draw upon, to render the
chances of obtaining a great general
equal, each American must possess a
thonsand fold tho talent of tl Prussian,
which is absurd.
A Desperate Duel With a Bowie
A most frightful and fatal affray oc
curred at Eberhardt City on Saturday
last, at about. 5 o'clock p. M., between
two mon by tho name of Jackson and
Beck. Tho fernier was recently from
Arizona, and tho latter has been a resi
lient in Eberhardt City for the past few
mouths, eugagod iii keeping a saloon.
Tho two had a quarrel some time before
tho fatal meeting, in which Jackson
made an assault upon Beek with aknifo,
but was driven off by Beck with a fire
shovel. Some three or four hours niter
this Jackson returned to Beck's saloon,
and, while the latter was standing in
the doorway, Jackson plunged an eight
inch bowie-knife to the hilt in Bock'?
Bide, and tho two clinched, and a very
fieros encounter ensued, Jackson utting
his kuifvj and fatally stabbing P,p<*':,
who, however, succeeded in freeing him
snlf from Jackson, and ran aa far as
Dana's saloon, a distance of sixty yards,
when bo was overtaken by Jackson, who
waa pursuing his victim with a bloody
and fiendish intent. Beck at thin placo
called for protection, but before tho as
tonished bystanders could render him
ssistauce, tho human fiend hntl dono
is work ; ho had given poor Beck flvo
ital stabs. At this junoturo, n party
y th i name of Brown, seeing what was
oiug on, knocked Jackson off from tho
orch into the street with u chair, and
?bile he was down, Beek, whiln actually
yiug, crawled to Jackson, and taking
iio knife which had boen used upon
im, he plunged it into Jackson's breast,
iviug him a fatal wound. Beck died
Imost immediately after hoing sepn
nted from Jackson, aud tho latter was
rought to tho county jail, where lie
Tigered until Wednesday last, when
oath ended his career. No ono hero
bouts knows anything of the former
areer of Jackson ; all that is known is
is statement that ho was from Arizona.
Jock was considered a peaceable man,
nd loaves an invalid widow to mourn
is untimely end.
The Sacrifice of Human Life.
The sacrifice of human lifo during
he past six months has been simply ap
talling, as will be shown by tho stivtis
ics which we print below. lu makiug
ip this record we have made HBO only of
he great disasters which have been re
torted by telegraph. Tho minor casu
alties it is impossible to estimate. Epi
lemies have beeu the most severe de
troyers of life, although neither the
iholera nor the plague has ravaged any
?art of the world. In tho Fiji Islands
doun 50,000 peoplo have perished by
hcasulS and other diseases introduced
lince thc annexation of those islands to
Jroat Britaiu. This unusual fatality
rom a comparatively innocuous disenso
he London Times explains upon the
jronnd that the European nations have
lecome hardened to it, aud that it was
lo8tructive to these islanders because
bey wero haviug it for the first time
md wero not accustomed to this boon of
british civilization. Earthquakes como
lecond in the list of destroying clements,
mving killed ovor 20,000 people. Wo
nive no record of tho loss of lifo by the
econt earthquakes and accompanying
rolcauic disturbances in Iceland, but
here have been four other earthquakes
rom which tho loss of life has been
riven approximately ns follows: In Now
.ramula", 1(5,000; iii Asia Minor, 2,000;
ti the Loyalty Islands whore the earth
quake was accompanied by a terrible
idal-wave, 2,000 ; and at San Cristobal,
\Iex?c ), 70. A famine in Asia Minor dar
ug the early part of the year swept off
?0,000 peoplo before relief could reach
he o filleted region. Floods como next
v. the disastrous catalogue, thoir rav
ines having been almost exclusively con
5ucd to Europe. Tho overflow of tho
3aronne in the southern part of France
lest roved 3,000 lives, and that of the
Danube in Fes th (?00. While our own
xmutry was severoly ravaged by doods
luring tho spring, especially in tho
louthwest and in Pennsylvania, their
lestruction was couliued to property.
Wo cnn find no evidence that more than
ux lives were lost by them, although
nany of them were very sudden and
iwopt everything before thom, being
iccompanied, as they wore, with hugo
nasses ol' ice. The marine disasters of
tho past six mouths have been pecu
liarly destructivo of life. Fifty-four
vessels, nearly all of them steamers,
aave gone down, taking with them 1,003
persons, the most prominent of which
ur, tho following : Tho Schiller, ofi*
ho Scilly Islands, 310 ; tho Gotten
icrg, oil'the Australian coast, 166 ; thc
Judiz, 02 ; tho Fu Sing, a Chiueso
iteamor, 50; the American ship Violetta,
12; the Vicksburg, collision with ice
>ergs, 10; tho Thoriuibiu, 20; tho
fortes, 26; the George Batters, 21 ; tho
Bride; Berat*, Berlin (Japanese), and
ho Alice, 20 each ; and tho Loch
lager, 10. There have beeu other
lovoro disasters on the South
Vmerican, Chiuone, and English
?oasts which involved a serious
os8 of lifo, but it is impossible to esti
mate them, as tho telegraph furnishes
io record. The season has been un
usually characterized by tornadoes and
mrricnues, and of these there have been
.ighteon which have been accompanied
>y loss of life, as follows : In Hong
Kong, 500; Georgia, 817; Chili, GO;
Louisiana, 20; Franco, ll ; Missouri,
i; Mississippi, ll ; Arkansas, 5 ; Mich?
gan, ll ; Wisconsin, .'5 ; Illinois, 3 ;
South Carolina, 2, and Kansas, 1 ; total,
)11. Thirty-five fires have been re
ported, hy which 304 lives have been
iticrifieed. Only three of these have
L>eeu accompanied by a heavy Joss of
life, being the burning of a match fac
ory at G< Ittenberg, Sweden (50 ;)
dca mera at New Orleans (75); and the
.?canfc Holyoke (Muss.) church disaster
02). Explosions, mainly in this couu
?ry, have killed 207 people, ns follows :
Fire-damp, 122 ; boilers, 18 ; gunpow
ler, 21 ; Oro works, 9 ; nitro-glycerine,
I ; chemicals, 3. Tho railroads^ in thia
jouutry at least, have not beeu eo pro
lific in the destruction of life as usual.
Ml hough 17 disasters havo boen re
ported, but 43 people have beeu killed,
ho largest number iu any siuglo disas
ter being but 7. The list of injured,
