Stewart's Saratoga Investments.
A corre spond?nt writes from Sara
toga to the Philadelphia Times : A. T.
Stewart is just now our biggest lion,
and a great sensation he is orcatiug
here just at present among the local
merchants. You see, after spending
$400,000 on hi8 big hotel, the Grand
Union, he found that he had two ele
gant stores to lot With characteristic
enterprise he fitted them np iu elegant
style, and is moving in a stock of goode.
Now the storekeepers he-e, notwith
standing that this very day should re
mind them that ours is a frc a country,
declare that A. T. S. haB no business
to r come here to undersoil them and
rule their trade, but the big merchant
does not see the thing in that light, and
laughs at the terribly exercised mer
chants. Stewart is indeed a remark
able man. Ho is a little, thin, wiry
fellow, with a pale, thoughtful face,
light blue, reflective eyes, reddish, gray
short whiskers, and very quiet in man
? ner. He dresses in black, and goes
I peering into every nook and corner of
the store in a way that makes bis em
ployes very nervous. When talking ho
invariably twirls.his eyeglass on his
finger or pats the palm of his hand
with a black glove. When you speak
to him he looks at you searchingly for
a moment before he replies, SB if to
read you through, a habit that, arises
from his wonderful' faoulty of reading
human nature. He is not BO serious
aS he has bec i painted ; on the con
trary, ho is fond of a joke, and yester
day, while superintending the arranging
of tho goods in his store, he frequently
laughed at tho idoos presented by his
managing man. He came up on Friday
night and passed the entire day in his
store. Indeed, I saw him there as late
as half past eleven o'olcck at night.
That is how he got rich, by attending
to his business in person. Stewart
bought the Union a few years ago for
$550,600. Since then he has spent as
much moro upon tho structure in enlarge
ments and improvements, until now it
is the most extensivo and perfect car
avansary in the world. He and his
wife oeeupy a suite of three rooms in
the hotel directly over the main en
trance. They have been finely but
not lavishly fitted np for him, each
window being provided with a little
balcony, nicely shaded by the fine old
trees that extend along the entiro front
of the hotel. Mrs. Stewart is a mild,
unpretentious lady, with an exceedingly
amiable countenance, and converses cor
dially with her friends. They aro, in
fact, the most undemonstrative couplo
here and one would hardly imagine, to
judge from their, manner, that they
were, with ono or two exceptions, the
wealthiest people in Am?rica. Mr.
Stewart says he intends expending a
further large sum on the improvement
and enlargement of the Union next
winter. It is ono of his pet projeota,
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 be a great benefit, to
our people, but whether it succeeds or
fails, we know that bass and jack will
flourish in our waters, and au effort
should he made to obtain a legislative
apporpriation for their propagation.
Nothing can be done in this direction,
however, until the professional fisher
men who depend upon what they catch
for their subsistence, learn that all
game laws which prevent the extermin
ation of gam? .fish .**e in their own
interest ; and'that instead of trying to
evade, it will pay them bettor to prose

just after the war, all tho creeks and
rivers, wero* swarming with bass, or
trout, and jack, and tho fishermen sold
them -readily at fifteen and twenty
cents per pound. A few fishermen
placed gill nets at the months of the
creeks aud the consequence is that
scarcely any bass or jack have been
brought to tho market hero this ye nr.
Nothing is seen but catfish and drum
whioh' find a slow -sale- at eight cents
Thus the fishermen can soo that tho
greed .of a few who own gill nets, havo

INDIA RUBBER SPIRITS.
The JSuddi t Departure af Mu? Kate Kino from
? Brooklyn Socictv,
Mrs. Jennie Holmes, the materializ
ing medium of Philadelphia, has re
cently resumed operations in Brooklyn, '
and tho last issue of tho Spiritualist
Banner of Light contains an account of
her -devious and wicked ways, os ob
HPry?d by the Brooklyn sooiety of spir
itualists. A committee of the sooiety
spends six evenings at her seances,
furnishing her with the necessary
cabinet, at the society's hali, on Falt?n
avenue. The ..conditions"'were simply
n muslin bag, loosely stitched together,
?which the medium drew arouud her,
and its mouth was tied over her
head. Then she was seated in the
cabinet, and put out tho arm of John
King through a hole in the door.
Then she pat ont his other arm, and
tuen hiB india-rubber face, with its
black whiskers, well known to Philadel
phia fame. Then she put ont Katie's | t
face, being her own, namely ; but no
one found it out at tho first seance. At
the second seance two of Mrs. Holmes'
black curls hung down over Katie's [
face, and this " gave rise to tho sus- T
pioions." Therefore tho bag was ex-'1
amined, and was found tb have trick
seams which opened and closed by
palling a thread. It was supgostod to
Mrs. Holmes at the third seance that it
would be well if the lady present could
hold her hands while the manifesta
tions went on. Another lady oftared to
pin her to the floor carpet to see if I \
Katie would walk forth materialized
under those conditions. Mrs. Holmes
declined to afford these aids to awak
ened thought. An extremely skeptical
gontlemi n observed that John King
did not walk forth, and that his india-1 \
rubber face had no breath in its nos
trils, while lovely Katie on the other
hand, always oamo forth in a white
muslin bag, and had a warm human
breath. At the sixth seance, therefore,
Mrs. Holmes was sought to be searched
by a committee of ladies desirous of
discovering spirit-faces concealed about
her person. Bat to that she demurred,
aad being disenonmbered of her muslin
bag for the last time, became suddenly
faint and must have air. Therefore
she tottered from tho room very sick ;
but the fresh air immediately beyond
the door so revived her that she ran
away like the wind, and never was
heard of in that placo again. *1 Whore
fore," concludes tho committee in its
report, "wo think she was a fraud"-or
words to that effect.
Von Moltke on West Point.
I am asked why noithor side in the
oivil war in America produced a very
distinguished general. Even thoir re
spective partisans hardly obum any
leader of transcendent genius. In so
long a war, and where so many men
fought, doeB it not imply a lack of
military talent in-the Americans?
answer, no. The true reason was bo
canso their field of selection was so
limited. No officer could hopo to
attain the supremo command of thoir
armies unless ho had been a student at
their military academy, called. West
Point,. on the Hudson rivpr^Jki-the
State of New York. Tko nunJoer of
theso students, deserving as they might
be, was and is extremely limited.
The southerners adopted the same per
nicious system of exclusiveness, as
many of these West Point officers had
joined- their side, and thoir president
had also been at the academy. It was,
perhaps, fortunate for tho north that
the south did not seek for talent among
the mass' of its people. It is said,
know not how truly, that the genius of
a civilian, Ericsson, by the invention of
a monitor, alono saved the northern
navy from destruction.
It is evident that tho chanco of ob
faining a .distinguished general in
creases as tho field pf selootion widens,
and diminishes as it contracts.
In our army every soldier may aspiro
to tho supreme command, but in tho
American armies the line of domark
ation WOB drawn as deeply as between
the former slaves and their masters.
The volunteer who represented tho
great bulk and strength of the people
might, indeed, attain distinction in ii
subordinate position, but the highest
place of all was forbidden. In reading
tho records of the Atnerican oivil war,
it really appears as if tho wholo 'contest
was between a few officers .of West
Point, and the mighty heart of the
nation had never throbbed. This aris
tocratic systom, which tho Americans
still follow, was formorly the praotico
in nil European armies. In the revol
ution of 1793, Garnot, the Frenoh min
ister of war? first abandoned it, and we i
For the sake of example, and not
binding oureelves to any exactness of
Agares, except that tho ono is very
small, and itB opposite, with whioh it is
compared, very largo, let us suppose
tho number of W?3t Point officers tb bo
five hundred, and the number of Prus
sian soldiers,five hundred thousand.
Evidently, ns we have a inna, a thou
sand larger to draw upon, Lo roucfer the
chances of obtaining; a. great general
equal, each American must possess a
thousand fold tho talent of a Prussian,
which is absurd. '"

HW Dil-uiiuuu Ux i i ii Iii cm um,.
The .sacrifice of human life during
he past six months has been aimply ap
lalling, as will be shown by the statis
ics which wo print below. In making
ip this record we have made use only of
he great disasters which have been re
jorted by telegraph. The minor casu
ilties it is impossible to estimate. Epi
lemics have been the most severe do
it roy era of life, al tho ii git neither the
.bolera nor tho plague has ravaged any
jart of the world. In the Fiji Islands
done 50,000 people have perished by
neasels and othor diseases introduced
lineo tho annexation of those islands to
3 re at Britain. This unusual fatality
rom a comparatively innocuous disease
;he London Timos explains upon the
?rr on nd that tho European nations have
jecome hardened to it, and that it was
lestructive to these islanders because
bey were having it for the first time
ind were not accustomed to this boon of
British civilization. Earthquakes come
lecond in the list of destroying elements,
laving killed over 20,000 people. Wo
lave no record of the loss of life by tho
recent .earthquakes and accompanying
rolcanio disturbances in Iceland, but
boro have been four other earthquakes
rom which tho loss of lifo has been
riven approximately as follows : In Now
Granada", 16,000; in Asia Minor, 2,000;
xx tho Loyalty Islands where the earth
quake wa? accompanied by a terrible
;idal-wave, 2,000 ; and at San Cristobal,
Mex: 03, 70. A famine in Asia Minor dur
ing the early part of tho year swept off
2.0,000 people before relief could reach
the o filleted region. Floods come next
IM the disastrous catalogue, their rav
ages having beon almost exclusively con
fined to Europe. Tho overflow of the
Garonne in the southern part of Franco
destroyed 3,000 lives, and that of the
Danube in Pesth GOO. While our own
oonntry was severoly ravaged by floods
during the spring, especially in the
southwest and in Pennsylvania, their
destruction was confined to property.
We can find no evidence that more than
six lives were lost by them, although
many of them were very Budden and
swept everything before them, being
accompanied, RB they were, with huge
masses of ice. The marine disasters of
the past six months have been- pecu
liarly destructive of life. Fifty-four
vessels, nearly all of them sieamors,
have gono down, taking with them'1,803
personj, tho most prominent..oX which
are tho following : The Schiller, off
tho Scilly Islands, 310'; the Gotten
berg, off the Australian coa?t, 166 ; the
Cadiz, 62; the Fa Sing, a Chinese
steamer, 50 ; the American ship Violetta,
12 ; the -Vicksburg, collision : with . ice
bergs, 40; the "Thornabia, 29-; the
Dortes, 26 ; the George Batters, 21 ; the
Bride, Borar, Berlin (Japanese), and
tho Alice, 20 each; and the Looh
aager, 16. Thero have been other
mvoro disasters on the South
American,' Chin?se, and English
3oasts which involved a serious
IOSB of life, but it is impossible to esti
mate them, as tho telegraph furnishes
uo record. The season has been un
usually characterized by tornadoes and
hurricanes, and of these there have been
?ighteen which have been accompanied
by loss of lifo, as follows : In Hong
Kong, 500; Georgia, 317; Chili, 60;
Louisiana, 20 ; France, ll ; Missouri,
S ; Mississippi, ll ; Arkansas, 5 ; Mich
igan, 3 ; Wisconein, 3 ;. Illinois, 3 ;
South Carolina, 2, and Kansas, 1 ; total,
344. Thirty-five fires have been re
ported, by which 304 lives have bean
sacrificed. Only three of theso have
been accompanied by a heavy loss of
life, being the burning of a match fac
tory at Gottenberg, Sweden (50 ;)
steamers at New Orleans (75); and the
recant Holyoke (Mass.) church disnster
(92). Explosions, mainly in this coun
try, have killed 207 people, ns follows :
Fire-damp, 122 ; boilers, 48 ; gunpow
der, 21 ; fire works, 9 ; nitro-glycerine,
1 ; chemicals, 3. The railroads, in this
country at least, have not been so pro
lific in the destrnction of lifo as usual.
Although 47 disasters have been re
ported,'-but 43 people have been killed,
the largest number in any single disas
ter being but 7. The list ot injured,
however, foots up 2i8. Last in the Hst
some snow-slides, whioh have buried 56.

Large as these figures seem it must bo
remembered that they roproBout but a
small-percentage of the destruction of
tinman lifo from other than natural
lauses. Thoy aro only tho large disas
