8o much has been said about the flow
of popnlatiou from the mousrchiee of
Enrope to the broad acrea of the Amer
ioau. republic, that further mention of
the ever-increasing current seems like
supererogation; yet the prospect for the
coming season ore so wide in scope that
the subject foroea itself into prominence.
A Berlin correspondent says a late ad
vertisement of the Lloyd Company
stated thnt in the four months then in
the future, from March 1 to June 30, it
would send out from Bremen to New
and Bnltiroore not lees than 67-steamers
—namely, 18 in March, 17 in April, and
16 each in May uud Juue—that is, more
than one large ship every two days. The
correspondent adds: Suppose that each
of them takes ont only 600 steerage
passengers on the average—in my opin
ion, the number will amount to at least
750 bend per vessel—there will be more
than 40,000 passengers from one Ger
man port within four months. And
what is still more interesting is the fact
that the passage money for the greater
part of the emigrants has been sent over
by friends and relatives from the United
States to Germany, or that a ticket has
been bought by them, which has been
sent over here. A similar lively 1, busi
ness is done in Hamburg; and apart from
the smaller towns of Havre, Antwerp,
Rotterdam and Liverpool (the latter as
far as German emigration is concerned),
the German emigration for 1882 may bo
set down at 250,000 alone. Our protec
tionists are quite alarmed. Who will
work for us, who will eat our breadstuffs,
they cry, if small farmers, servants and
mechanich go to America? To help
themselves, they insist upon strong emi
gration laws; bul it will l>e of no use.
They may hurt Bremen and Hamburg
for a short time, but they will further
the shipping interests of Rotterdam,
Antwerp, Havre and Liverpool. This
mighty migration cannot be stopped by
precautionary measures of the police,
the factors creatiug it beiug too power

With a view to relieve the congres
sional calendar of the long list of private
claims which act ns a serious obstruction
to the transaction of business of public
importance, Senator Edmunds has framed
and presented a bill which provides that
any citizen of the United States who
makes a claim against the government
which has become complete within the
four years preceding the passage of the
bill, or which shall have become com
plete subsequent to that period, may ap
ply to the department of justice for leave
to sue the United States for the enforce
ment of such claim, all claims growing
out of the relicilion being specifically
excluded from the action of this bill.
The bead of the department of justice
shall examine the petition and shall
grant the same, unless be shall be of
opinion that the claim is frivolous or
has already been passed upon by the two
houses of congress or by tbo court of
claims, or by tome court of justice. If
leave to sue be grnted, the petitioner
may bring a suit, giving reasonable se
curity in case he shall fail in lus suit.
The district attorney will appear for the
United States and defend the suit, and
special counsel may be employed to as
sist him. If judgment is rendered
against the United States the amount
shall be paid nut ol the treasury. The
English Parliament is so overrun with
bills of this description that its public
business is seriously neglected, and there
is little doubt that some system of dis
posing of such claims outside of parlia
ment will lie eveutually adopted. Under
the present arrangement the injustice is
two-fold: wrongs of private persons
which ought to lie redressed are ne
glected so long that when the remedy
comes it is too late, and private bills oc
cupy the calendar of legislative bodies to
the exclusion and jiostjiouement of pub
lic basin < ss.

It is unfortunate for America that the
weakness of morala existing the world
over in varyiug proportions, should crop
out among her citizens in a special
branch of mercantile trade whereon the
eyes of the whole world are particularly
directed. Fraud of all kind should be
considered a base crime and speedily
punished, but when the act jeopardises
the integrity of a nation's trade, the per
petrators should lie ferreted out and
made to suffer a double punishment.
The lately reported frauds in the Amer
ican cotton trade have caused quite a
stir iu trade oircles in Great Britain, and
the American consul at Manchester haa
investigated the matter to his sorrow,
judging from the following from the
Loudon Daily News: •' The reportfrom
the American consul at Manchester that
the charges of fraud in the packing of
American cotton are true is frank and
fair enougii. Mr. ttbaw has, in the fig
urative language of the far west, ‘ac
knowledged the corn.' Lancashire haa
long complained that the weight of cot
ton is increased by putting sand
and water into the bales. Hun-
dreds of tous of sand are paid
for at ih« price of cotton every year.
No moderation appears to have been
experienced iu this species of fraud for
the sand seems to have been thrown in
by shovelfuls. This it very dishonor
able, and demands caution uu the part of
the buyer; but we may remind the spin
nan of Oldham that it ia one of the old
est nod moat vulgar kinds of frauds of
which the commercial world is cognizant.
To increase the weight of a valuable arti
cle by concealing withiu it some article
of greater weight aud less value is one at
the moat ancient kind of rascality. The
'augmentation of mercury,’ aa it waa
culled, was a feriiUe fraud of the last
century, aud the augmentation of ailk by
the addition of dye ia so familiar iu nor
own day al to bare nlinoti ceased to be a
fraud at all. Everybody knows that a
yard of ailk can lie dyed to uuy required
weight, aa a yard of oottou cloth can be
'finished’ to uuy extent desired. It ia
also fairly known lust u retd ,4f cotton
' warranted ' to contain so many yards
doss not always contain that measure.
These instant*.* rmu&bk that .of
‘ jewelers’s gold,’ the proportions
whereof are said to be a golden guinea to
a oopper ooal-acnttle, and albeit diacredit
ab’e are of the nature of the mild tricks
of the diplomatist who ' lied always but
deceived nobody.’ The ‘ sanding ’ of
ootton like the ‘ sanding ’ of sngar is of
the earliest form of swindling, to be
sought (or in the primary strata of raa
oaldom. The ‘ noble savage ’ is clever
enough to introduce stones and other
weighty substances into lumps of gutta
percha god india rubber. But this pre
historic method of robbery is hardly
worthy of a * smart' country, and might
have been disbelieved had it not been
for the manly and straightforward avowal
of the American oonsul at Manchester.’’
Hoctal economists who hsva drawn
various inferences from the beer-drink
ing habits of civilised races, says the
New York Times, and moderate temper
anoe reformers who have urged an in
crease of beer consumption as a sort of
antidote or substitute for stronger and
more dangerous beverages, will find
much to interest them in the brewery
statistics which an industrious person of
Vienna has recently oompleted. His re
turns cover the whole of Europe, save
the southeast and southwest, and our
own country besides. Tc Great Britain
he accords the honor of pojrcssing more
breweries than any other oonntry, she
having 26,114 of them, while Germany
ranking next, has 28,940; the United
States, 8,293; France, 3,100; Belgium,
2,508; Austria-Huugary, 2,297; Holland,
560, and Russia, 460. Similar compar
ative results are shown in the figures of
production, Great Britain leading here,
with 49,000,000 hectolitres; Germany
coming next, with 37,000,000, and then
following the United States, with
14,000,000; Austria-Hungary, with
11,000,000; Belgium, with 8,000,000;
France, with 7,000,000; and Russia, with
3,000,000. That Russia should jiroduce
nearly half as muoh beer as France, and
yet have less than one-seventh
the number of breweries, shows
bow large her establishments must be:
we learn, in fact, that they arc the largest
in the world. Denmark ranks next to
her iu this respect, and then follow Aus
tria Hungary, the United States, France,
Great Britain and Germany; in other
words, statistics of production per brew
ery in the order of countries are about
the reverse of those for total production.
But more important than these facts are
the returns of production per head of
local consumers. Here, the various
countries, if uot restored to their first re
lations, are very nearly so. Belgium,
instead of Great Britain, heads this list
with 151 litres for each individual in
habitant. But Great Britain is next,
producing 140 litres; Germany next, with
83; then come Denmark, with 76; Hol
land, with 52; the United States with 30;
Austria-Hangary, with 20; France, with
20, and Russia, with 4. No < sport or
import returns are furnished, else it
would be interesting to see hew they
modify the inferences concerning home
consumption which one might though
hash draw from these figures. Ger
many’s 83 litres, agaiDst the 140 for
Great Britain cud the 151 for Belgium,
are anomalous without such returns to
explain them.

Apportionment and rearrangement of
congressional districts bring into fre
queat use tbe term gerrymander. Tbia
ia a designation invented seventy years
ago. In 1811, for the first time in many
years, the republican-democrats of Mas
sachusetts elected a governor and both
branches of tbe general court, and to pre
serve their power they rearranged the
senatorial districts and made them of ir
regular shape so as to give them a major
ity in as many as possible. The scheme
met with great opposition, and Elbridge
Gerry, then governor, came in for a
share of the wholesale denunciation of its
promoters. One diatriot was made of a
line of towns on the westerly and nor
therly sides of Esses County, forming
something like an irregular let
ter F. The Boston Centiuel was the
leading federalist paper, and Butaell, its
editor, to show what wss being done,
took a map of the county, oolored the
towns not included in the peculiar dis
trict and hung it up in hia office. One
day Gilbert Stuart saw it and and say
ing that it looked like some monstrous an
imal, took a pencil and with a few
strokes indicated upon it head, wings and
daws, so that the new diatriot looked
like some kind of a strange dragon.
“ There," hi said, that will do for a sal
amander." ** Salamander I" exclaimed
Bussell, “ call it a Gerry-maoder 1” The
election m the apcmg ef IMS revealed
the sffaieaey of the scheme, bat it (we
aled aucb an uproar that gerrymander
ing was not allowed to stand.

A frightful murder waa committed at Ded
ham, an outlying suburb of Boston, Haas., on
the evening of the 15th. A mill operative
named John Hullivan, 85 year* of age, went
home in a more or less intoxicated condition,
and began a quarrel with lue wife, Bridget, wbe
wee fifteen years hie eenor. The quarrel grew
rapidly bitter, and in a few minutes Sullivan
drew a razor, and with one movement severed her
jugular vein and carotid artery, his mad inten
tion evidently being to completely behead his
victim. Wonderful to relate, however, the
poor woman, with extraordinary vitality, al
though thus mortally wounded, rushed out of
the room, down stairs, and into the village
street, screaming for help. Hullivan followed,
and a most extraordinary race ensued. The
bleeding woman ran to a neighbor's door, and
was about forcing it open when the murderer
caught up with her, and. seizing her by the
hair, trgan earring her head with the razor,
which lie had carried iu his hand all the while.
Bbe broke away and ran, and the horrible pur
suit continued, some say five mumtes. At
leugth the woman, her life-blood drained to its
dregs, staggered on to her own door-step, snd
there fell dead. When Sullivan was assured
bis wife was dead, and before being secured bv
tbe uohee, he made an attempt to Sake Us own
life by cutting a gash in his throat with a razor,
severing the windpipe. Tbe wound was quick
ly attended to, ana will nut prove fatal.

Tricky Device* in Gambling.
[Prom tbe Hi. Loui* Republican.]
One of the newest tools is the poker
ring, on ingenious little contrivance for
marking the cards while playing, in a
systematic manner, so that in a half an
hour one can tell each card as well by the
back ss by the face. Although it ia not
generally kuown, it is in nsc by a few of
the oldest and best professional players
in the country. It is no secret that in
gaming houses marked-back plaving
cards are used. The pattern on the Duck
seems innocent enough until it is held
at a certain angle under the light, aud
then the difference between cards may
be seen. Tbs greenhorn cannot tell the
pack from fair cards iu common use, bat
the professional can tell precisely tbe
cards that his opponeut holds. There
are loaded dice, which are made the ex
aot imitation of ordinary dice. Theu
there is the spy, a reflector about the
sise of a half dollar, which, it is said, can
be used with perfect safety on the table
or on the kuce.
As for “ strippers," another device in
cards, a gambler says: “ The benefit of
these oards cannot be estimated ouly in
one way, aud that ia the amount of mon
ey your opponent has got, for yon are
oertain to get it, whether it ia $lO or $lO,-
000; the heavier the stakes the sooner
you break him and he never knows what
hurt him. • The bog ’ is a devioe for
withdrawing from the pack a number of
cards from which the player can make
up a hand to suit.”

Matthew Joliuaon reached Denver City
from Fort Hualapai, and will leave for
hie old home in New York state, there
to spend hia remaining days. Sewtral
years ago he was living with hia wife and
several children near Hualapai. One
early morning, while the father was ab
sent at the military post, the bend of
Mojave Indiana, of which Deiahay was
chief, attacked the ranch, outraged the
mother and tortured her and the three
children to death. When Johnson re
turned biz cabin was in flzmea and tbe
blood of his dying family yet warm.
Almost crazed, he went back to the fort
without even waiting to inter the remains
of hiz wife and children and Briefly told
the awfnl tragedy. Within fifteen min
utes a detachment of Company K of tbe
fifth cavalry were mounted, under the
command of Col. Mason, and on the
trail of the roppenkinned devils, John
son going along.
Ou the morning of the third day the
cavalry entered the Black Hills, at the
beadwnterw of tbe Verdi River, the home
of the wild Apache Mojavee. That
evening the camp was made near the
Verdi aud a scouting party further fol
lowed the trail, which appeared to be
only a few bonra old. In a small clump
of cotton-wooda and near a marshy por
tion of the river the smoke of the Indians
was discovered. It was too late to at
tack the Indiana, as the darkness would
afford them an escape. The had ap
parently located with tbe intention of
remaining a few days and hunting, so
the assault was deferred UDlil the morn
ing, tlie cavalry coming up, however,
and putting out sentinels. On one of
the posts Bohnson stood keepirig vigil
through tbe night. In the morning the
cavalry swooped down npun them. Har
pnsrd in their stronghold, and with their
arms scattered carelessly about, the In
dians conld do nothii g lietter than fly;
and fly they did toward the river, ttt
soldiers picking them off one by one in
tlie chase. Deiahay was more running
iud sclf-possecsed than his followers,
making up the river through the thick
cottonwood The six Indians were killed
before one of them had reached the
stream, but Delshay, tbe seventh, had
such a start thnt tbe cuvalry almost gave
up all hope of overtaking him. They
spread out, however, and made a ski.-
misb through the cottonwood forest.
When they brought np in a little glade
up the stream a ronple of miles, they
were astonished to find Johnson leaning
over the dead liody of an Indian chief,
backing and cutting it with a huge
bowie-knife in insane frenzy. The
laxly lay upon the river bonk as it it had
been pulled out after the infliction of
tbc death-wonnd. The head was nearly
severed by a stroke of the knife, and
Johnaou bad scalped it. It was many
minutes before bis fury had spent itself,
the soldiers never interfering with the
horrible satisfaction which the widowed
husband and childless father wii* taking
for bis wrongs. Filially, nhcu be had
grown calm enough to explain, lie told
how he had seen the Indian making np
tbe river, aud, resolved that none should
escape, he followed aa beat he might.
When lie got through tlie timber lie
fouud the trail, aud although it wus done
with much difficulty, he •luccceded in
tracing it to the river honk. There it
lieciunc lost, and, knowing the Indiau
conld not have crossed the stream with
out having been seen on tbe opposite
side, which was open and denuded of
trees and underbrush, he concluded that
the Indiau was secreted in the bank.
While walking down the bank a head
was protruded from a pcxil near the shore.
It was Dalshay taking air. Stealthily
Johuson approached, aud before tbe In
dian could realize that the avenger waa
nigh, he was grasped by tbe hair and his
throat was slit from ear to ear.
When the fort wits leached. Johnson
►requested to be employed in tbe scouting
servioe, mid was engaged. He became
tbe bloodiest and most relentless of the
border scouts, aud figured prominently
iu all the campaigns against the Apaches
up to the recent <»ne, which Own. Carr

It is generally supposed that the smug
gling business is carried on to quite an
extent all along our Canadian frontier,
but we ere inclined to the opinion that
this is a mistake, for tbe reason that
there is uu longer the inducement to in
dulge in the risk, for good wares and
merchandise can now be had at home al
most as cheap, and in many instances
cheaper than on tbe other ride. As a
natural consequence the “ occupation ”
of a Urge Hst of customs officials would
be gone were it not for tbe fact that once
in a great while some wonderful discov
ery is made—a seizure—a sale—and a
long account nicely written np in some
paper and some government detective
becomes a hero in no time, bat when it
turns oat Anally that it waa "a put up
job," people begin to settle down to the
idea that if these occasional discoveries
were not made there would be no excuse
for such an unnecessary number of gov
ernment officials. Bnt we were about
to relate an incident which occurred
three or four winters ago, not a thousand
miles from this city.
The article of kerosene owing to, the
greet difference in price between this and

a government officer dieoovered, one
pretty dark night, a doable sleigh well
loaded with keroeene winding its way

pursued with bis horse and cutter, and
the race became exciting aa th* officer
gained upon tbe smuggler, who seemed
to realize that unless something wss
done quickly his expedition would be a
failure. Both smuggler aud officer were
lashing their horses to their utmost
■peed, and only a short pace waa
between them, when all of.* oudden the
rear barrel slipped off th# loed aa if by

are attributed to disappointment in love.

says the emperor might profit by a study
of a leaf from the order-book of Napo
leon. Under tbe consulate this tame
tendency had revenled itself, and Napo
leon pubUahed the following order (dated
1801) to the forces under his command:

Kentucky Superstition*.

Journal gives some of the current super

it If a dog lies on its back and howls it
presages an early death in the family. If
thwlongest snake killed in a day’s search

parched field it will bring rain. If it be
