Rio JANEIRO is |in a ferment. The
Minister of the Interior having been
dismissed by the Emperor of Brazil,
the Chamber of Deputies, in discussing
the matter, was interrupted by an
unruly mob, and the President ordered
four hundred troops to preserve order.
This step caused great excitement, and
a riot was imminent; but the troops
restored order after shooting a few
i ioters. What would the immortal
George Washingtou say if told that1
while the use of troops to overawe the
people in a South American Empire
raises such a commotion, the leaders 1
of a great party in his own North
American Republic boldly assert the
right of the government to exercise
military supervision of elections and
to use the armyj to maintain the su
premacy ef a faction ?
Mn. HENRY. WA TTERsoN, of the
Courten-lournal, has of late been
pouring hot shot into) Conkling, accus
ing him, among other things, of treat- I
ing his wife so badly that she is on the i
p,oint of seeking a divorce. A Wash- ~
Ington correspondent, wrote to a Phila
delia paper that the Courjer-Jour-1
nal's attacks are cau'sed by the fact <
that Copkiing refused to associate I
with Watterson, and declined repeat
ed Invitations to dinner while the lat
ter' was a member of Congress. A
demand for the author of this exp)lana
tion evoked a promise from the cor
respondent to divulge the name pro
vided WVattersonm made an anidavit
that the charge was falso. To this i
WVatterson replied that the anthor of
the statements was a scoundrel, adding '
that lhe left tihe correspondent and
Senator Conklinfg to determine to ]
which of themi his epithet applied.
Tihe correspondent repeats the
charge, and concludes: "From thle
time when you were first brought to
the notice of the public by your antics
in tile rear of tile rebel army as pow..
der monkey, your reputation hats been
such1 that you should not be surp)rised
that your society is not considered
desirable by gentlemen." WIatterson
says that Conkling is the author of the 4
report which lie p)ronounces a slander,
and prOmises to tear that gentleman (o
pieces in his paper. We may there
fore look for some choice English
-The Duty on Quinine.
For many years one or two- firms
in Philadelphia enjoyed a monopoly
on quinine, in consequencee of a duty
of twenty per cent. on the imported
article. Repeated efforts to repeal the
duty failed, until on the last day of
the sessionl Congressman McKenzie, of
Kentucky, prepared a bill providing
that "hereafter the importaltionl of
sulphate of quinine or salts of quinine
shall be free of customs," and rulshed
It through before the mlonop)olists
could say a word or raise a
finger in opposition. 'The feat
has been' generally extolled as a
great victory ; .but the Augusta
Chronioce and ConstituHionalist says
that there Is a eat in the meAltub some
where which will defeat the" objpot in
tended. We hope, our conteiporary
will be more explicit, in 'pointing out
the # foect In the law, as iI; I all right
upont Its fte. "A seming paradox Is
the CeUtnnstande that quiine just nokV
brings a higher price thain It did be
*fore' theaboliioni bf thie duty. :This
IsQexplained by the,'elreumsatance that
the Atnaorican 'firms areo vithholding
thel wareu, hI46thd o0rQIi supply
inrj!yed i f.em to 'meef tle de.
tmand. As soon as Enropean tiinn-.
facttret's can send further shipments,
the price is bound to full, tnless the
Chronicle's alleged detection of a
loophole be correct. As several nil
lion dollars' worth of quinine Is sold
in the United States, and especially in
the South, every year, Congressman
McKenzie, if his bill be really"bonib
proof, will be entitled to the thanks
of the public. The people of the ague
ridden and miasmatic regions of the
United States should present him with
a testimonial of gratitude.
The Grant Boom.
General Grant's friends, who ex
pected to give him a grand ovation in
San Francisco this sumner, have be
conic alarmed at the prospect of hav
lug him tacked on to the tail of a huge
hippodrome, traveling at excursion
rates, and have announced that the
date of his return is very uncertain.
Mr. Boric, one of the great unknowns
whom Grant placed in his first cabi
net, and who, although seventy-four
years of age, has traveled twenty-six
thousand miles in five months along
with Grant, ani yet never had an op
portunify, he says, of mentioning the
third term once, has hied him back to
Philadelphia to stop the boom. H[e
ilso is responsible for the assertion
that Grant would rather not have the
Presidency again; but then, you know,
f it was spontaneously &c. ofler
id to him, he might be prevailed upon
to accept. It is the business of the
'boomers" now to work up this
spontaueous uprising of the loyal
people of the North." But Sherman
s fixing the Southern Radical na
ihines for a spontaneous Sherman
boom, and this is causing great dis
,uietude among the third termers.
Between the threatened traveling hip
,odrome across the continent, and the
3hermanizng of the Bread and 'lutter
Brigade, George Washington Childs,
Borie, Zach Chandler and Conkling
ill have their hands full in coaching
hat spontaneous boom.
A NEw BUSINESS.--A new business
las sprung up in New York. At ear
y dawn there appear within certain
marrow and well-defined limits about
he ferries, ticket offices, and other
places where people in a hurry have
ccasion to take money from their
pockets, men whose occupation it is to
ceek for whatever may have been lost
he night before. One of these "find
;rs" said to a Sum reportcr that "there
ire probably fifty men who make a

Snake stories of wonderful propor- t
tions are told here in the valley. They
are vouched for, too, which makes
then all the more interesting. The
hills for miles around are Just full of
rep,tiles. To the east of this historic k
od town stretch the Blue Ridge Moun
tains. To the west the big North
Mountain, a spur of the jagged Al
leghanies towers above its neighbors.
ltattlesnajes, moccasins and copper- f
heads abound. They crawl out from
under every rock. They lie in the 1
pathway-if there happens to he a

live singly, in pairs, in whole droves, I

true that they very seldom come down

FIslIING FORl A SNAIcE. at
There are lots of whiskey distillers
around the mountains. "Moonshin- i
ers," the men who distill in a small
way and evade taxation, are very
scarce in this district. The deputy
collector keeps a sharp look-out, is
thoroughly fimiliar with all the signs k
and quick to follow thein up, and it in
takes a moonWiner of the sharpest g
stamp to elude his careful search. The la
distillers tell some marvelous tales, ?
and are ready to back them up with d
affidavits at any time. "Talkin' about w
snakes," said one of them, who in- B
habits the Blue Ridge, near Leesburg, A

snakes hung by their tails from the Ili

Touch one of themtt and the peculiar i
sound of the dry rattles would send a I
