Dear Sir : D. F. A. Getuh, whose Analysis of the Guanahani Guano you have shown me

have no hesitation in endorsing any analysis from his laboratory. A.nd I think the an
alysis jastifies his statement that tho'substance examined by him is a VALUABLE MAN
URE. From his report, and that of Prof. Wilson, it is evidently a TRUE GLANO, both :n
origin and compisition, and its action on crops uuy b- expected to hi the same in kind

How to account for this difference
I did net know until at last, I
found that the trouble lay in the
fact that these congenial unconge

Dear Sir : I have drawn samples of the Guano, as it has arrived m cargo lets, and find
it exceedingly uniform in the amount of Phosphoric Acid it cor:

value equal to from 2 to 3 per cent, of ammonia, w ith toe alkalies Potash and Soda, and
valuable proportions of Sulphate of Lime. The who'e forming a very desire.ible coniza
tion for all crops, and when applied to land, the crop receiving- proper tillaa". innl in my
opinion, give as good results as any guano oliared to the farmer.
Being of animal origin, the organtic matter ha undergone partial decompoMtio;:. and it
necessarily contains a valuable amount of II umu-, which mak its fertiiiziuj pow er much
greater than fertilizers which are compounded largely of Peruvian Guano, which, beyond
ils ammonia and small phosphatic value, ha little or no powe in absorbing t orn the at
mosphere and retaining in the soil the movable elements absoibe 1 by moisture and brought
down uy the rains as the guano yoa a: e now placing upon the market. A" of the
components of this Guano ate very soluble in the soil, and possess such physical proper

"Does your arm pain yoa ?" ask
ed a lady of a gentleman, who, in
a mixed assembly, had thrown his
arms across the back of her chair
and touched her neck. "No, Miss;
it don't: but why do you ask?"
"I noticed that it was out of place,
sir, that's all." The arm was re
moved. "7t is ceitain that overfeeding
as well as over-drinking is a great
evil, and produces its yearly heca
tombs of victims, who are looked
upon as innocent sufferers, while
their colleagues, the over-drinkers
are severely dealt with in respecta
ble society." Thus writes a recent

A Question of tiie Proceed
ings in Bankruptcy. Attorney
General Williams, on a question
submitted to him by the Secretary
of the Treasury, decides that a pay
ment made by a debtor to a creditor
who has committed an act of bank
ruptcy, and against whom proceed
ings in bankruptcy have been
instituted and are pending, but who
has not yet been adjudged a bank
rupt, will not be valid iu the event
of ac adjudication of bankruptcy in
such proceedings if the payment
transpired subsequent to the filling
of the petion therein; second, that
a payment made by a debtor to a
creditor who is knows to have com
mitted an act of bankruptcy, but
against whom proceedings have not
atthe time been .taken, is valid in
so far as it i3 affected by existing
Bishop Johns, Bishop of the Epis
copal Church in the Diocese of
Virginia, has written and published
in pamphlet form, a reply to the
letter of Mr. Latane, of Wheeling,
in which the Bishop takes the
ground that Mr." Latane has left the
Church (according to his own show
ing) without good cause; that the
doctrines of the Church are Scrip-
tural, but that they have been mis
construed, which is do reason for
withdrawal. The." letter is -very
kind, and the Bishop seems deeply
pained that Mr: Latane should have
left such a Church for such reasons.
