DEL T. SUTTON, Fublisher. BROCK WAY C EXT Ell, MiCII GENERAL XOTES 'Just before leaving his old ho,me, Liberty Hull' Crawfordayille, for the Executive. Mansion at Atlanta, Ga., the other day," the Hon. Alexander II. Stephens went through the house with the gentlemen who hail come to escort him to the capital, and talked freely of the history of the place. "I bought this house," he said, "in 1812; and to day for the first time it is to be closed up. We are packing up everything and the house will be closed except for Mr. O'Xeil, an old friend of mine, who is now approaching his ninetieth year, and who will contiue to live here. . . Tias room (i bedroom adjoining the library) was occupied the nifcht it was finished by Smith O'Brien, the last of the line of the Irish kirgs of Munster the grandest man in some respects I ever knew. I never entertained a greater man." ' Mr. Stephens was un mistakably sad on leaving the old place, and sadder still were ,his tenants and neighbors to see him go. Crowds greeted him at every station on the way to Atlanta. Passing Madison he exclaimed: "There is where I spent the most miserable, part of my life. I had just left college, and, full of aspir ations and ambitious, had to settle down into the life of a pedagogue. It was intensely distasteful to me, and the three months I spent at Madison were the darkest of my life." The re ception given him at Atlanta is describ ed as one of the most imposing demon strations ever known in that city. . If the French nation had any con science, the death of the Bey of Tunis wmild ni!ik them uncomfortable, But it is not likely to cause them a single qualm. The Bey ruled his people with good intentions, and for a Mahometan potentate did pretty well. He made numerous promises to his subjects of religious liberty and equiliy before the law, and he did not break them all. It was an unlucky day for him when he first began to indulge in financial opera tions with France. The loan which he negotiated In Paris in 18G3 gave the French a grip on his affairs that they have7 been tightening ever since. The death of the Bry was undoubtedly hast ened by the mortitlcatiou which his troubles have caused him. He fails a victim, first of the bondholders' greed, and finally of French fioanclal diplo macya diplomacy thoroughly unscru pulous, mendacious and downright wicked. A detactimlnt of ''harmless" luna tics from the State Insane Aylum for Convicts in Auburn, New Yoik, has been tent under the charge of keepers to a large farm in Fleming and set to husking corn on shares. Their share will ba used to fatten swine at the asy lum. The work is agreeable to them and profitable to the state, and the en terprise will probably be succes&f ul un less some ''harmless" busker should suddenly develop a murderous propen sity and make matters very unpleasant for those about him. Recent ex peri, ences have tended to confirm the belief that there is no such being in existence as a harmless lunatic. It is believed that Mr. Alcott's illness is, in a measure, due to the Journey he recently took to Connecticut to revisit the scenes of his youth, which was too much of a strain upon bim, physically and mentally. On returning to his home he said that probably he never again would leave it. Thereafter Bos ton was the limit of his endurance in traveling, and it was while preparing to go there that he was stricken down on Tuesday last. On Friday morning he recovered consciousness so far as to motion for his spectacles to be brought to him, that he might see whether he could still read. Contrary to the usual experience in similar cases, later reports of the floods in Northern Italy are more dis tressing than the first accounts. The King contributed 100,000 francs to the relief fund and the people in all parts of the realm are nobly imitating his example. The worst feature of the calamity is that in many places its re sult will be permanent. Charity will keep the sufferers from starving, but it cannot redeem the land which has been burled beneath a deposit of clay and rocks. The grave of Emerson is kept con stantly covered with flowers by the young girls of Concord Hawthorne's with a stone, at head and foot bearing simply his name, is thickly overgrown with glossy myrtle. Thoreau's is un adorned, save with a thick sod of green grass. It is stated that certain difficulties will prevent Sir Garnet "Wolseley ' re ceiving any higher military rank in recognition of his service in Egypt, so that he will remain on the roll of lieutenant-generals and enly be pro moted when his turn comes in regular course. He is now fifteenth on the list for promotion to the rank of general. . Nearly 400,000 immigrants haye ar rived thus far in 1882. MICHIGAN.

Ledyard of the Michigan Central, returned from New York after an absence of 10 days, and was found at his office brim full of business. The plans and specifications for the NEW MICHIGAN CENTRAL DEPOT were adouted while Mr. Ledyard was in New York, and are now to be seen at his office. The desigu is by an east ern architect, and provides for a build ing that will meet all the demands of the roads to occupy it, and at the same time be an ornament to the city. Its dimensions over all will be 180x400 feet and three stories high, and will oc cupy that part of the present site imme diately od the corner of Third and Wood bridge streets. Adjoining tliis on the west part of the whole will be a two-story building ana a one-story coach, or train shed. EIGHT TRACKS will enter the depot, and instead of a monster shed covering the entire track room there will bo sheds covering the passenger platforms between the tracks and the latter will be covered. This is the latest idea in passenger depots. Passengers will pass from the wa.ting rooms aud ticket oOlces of the main buildine through a vestibule to the trains, which will be separated from the depot proper by fences for greater security and regularity. The entire building including sheds and annexes, is to be built of brn:k, with brown etoue trimmings, and in a thoroughly sub stantial manner throughout, and is ESTIMATED TO CcST 1175,000. The work of removing the present building- to commence the new begins at once, and the latter, with all Its ap purtenances, will, it is thought, be com pleted and ready for occupancy in lets than 10 months. froof tnat Floats in Air.

Mr. Hodgmau of Climax has prepared an alphabetical index of all the roads in that township, with an exact descrip tion and location of each, from the legal surveys. The same thing is be ing done in Kalamazoo township; and the work shows that roads originally surveyed and opened five rods wide have been narrowed to three-and-a-half rods by illegal overreachments by pro perty owners. This is a work of so much importance for the preservation of legal records, maps. etc.. for the future, that it would be a good thing if it were reduired by law Id every township in the state.

There are many phtces In tbe city of London where a statue of Longfellow would arouse no dis cordant feeling. The abbey should remain a place ot natlenal, not of Cosmopolitan, memo rial.

Mather and Just at the up per edge.of the rapids, four miles below Ijiw rence, tbe steamer ran upou a rock and stuck there. It was indispensable that Gen. Butler should be at Lawrence at au early hour and small boat carried by the steamer was bi ought alongside and Gm. Butler, Mayor Breen, Hon. Cabel Saunders and Capt. Homans took their place In it. The water was running very swiftly and a soon as the boat was loaded tbe current began to suck it undjr the counter of the steamer. In endeavoring to push it clear th boat was partially swamped and each ef fort to right matters only made them worse The current was so wif t that only an extraor dinarlly strong swimmer could escape being drawn Into the rapids and whirled down the river a mile or two before still water could be reached.

TriE Polite Xew Londoner. The Providence Star i elates a pretty story tfius: After ail, sincere politeness the sweettst and most acceptable. The other day 1 saw a Xew London man in Providence a Xew Londoner not noted for his urbanity, but rather for his grisly au.iteiity. At bume, he nev er lifts his hat to anybody. Well, he was on tbe Paw tucket horse cars, when there came throbbling up a poor de formed girl, plodding along by the aid of a rude crutch, bhe was hunchback ed and had a hip infirmity; in fact, it seemed sif all the corporeal afutctions had devastated her delicate little body, Xow what did this grim old Xew Lon doner do, but dismount and help her aboard, and what did he further do but unpin his button-hole bouquet, and hand it to her; and what did he still further do, but raise his hat and make hr theprofoundestof bows; in return for all of which sne beamed upon him one of the s iddsat of smilesa smile so sad it seemed to have caught the sweet melancholy of tbe Octoler sun shine. He was a gentleman of the old school a Fdiool that ought never to have beeu dismissed. The Fatiiek of a Family. A reg ular poser a clincher is the case of an Irishman named Dennis, if true; if not true, the Annual Register must be responsible, lie aiea at Atnenry in 1 804, at the age ' of one hundred and seventeen; he had been married seven times, the last time at the age of nine ty-three, lie survived the births of forty-eight children, two hundred and thirty-six grandchildren, four hundred and forty.four great-grandchildren and twenty-five great-great-grandchil dren. All the Tear Hound. Prudence. Over-caution and over- preparation do not seldom defeat their own object. Washington Irving tells us of a Dutchman who, having to leap a ditch, went back three mile?, that he might have a good run at it, and found himself so completely winded, when hs arrived at It again, that he was obliged to sit down on the wroag side to re cover his breath. , Hald-a-dozn of Baton's cultund youths having risen to give a prety tirl a seat iu a crowded horse car. and t dead still when a poor old colored w.iman. loaded down with a heavy buudle, came in, a plasterer in the. jor ner rot up, and motioning to her,aid "Plaze to take this seat, num. I ffei ed it to the young leJdy over yander when she got In. but she took one that one o' thim byfsaloDg-sideglve to her. So you take this, for, begorra! if ( should knape it from yei afther offer ing it to the other leddy, the folks abaord the car moight think I was a masher, and I've got a charackter to sustain." There being nothing to say, nothing was said. Abdul Kerlm Pasha, an Intimate friend of Arabl Pasha and one of the best educated of orientals, is to visit Ameiicain the interests of Egyptian Immigrants to this country. About Proachers, Churches and Iteligion. Somebody has discovered that cati are nowhere mentioned in the Bible. Cardinal Manning has warned En glish Roman Catholics against the Sal vation army. Dr. Moffat, the veterau African mis sionary, is still in good health, though la his both year. . . The Itev. A. E. Ives, of Castine, Me.. has been elect ed to me" bf rbhip in tha -. Maine legislature. Mormon emissaries continue to se cure many converts In Europe and wherever they preach their doctrine. It is proposed to erect a memorial church to Daniel O'Connell in Cahir civeen, Kerry, the native parish of the Liberator. They do say that the first question asked by a deacon visiting Egypt was, "Jnow, what were the ieal facts of the Potiphar scandal?" Prof. Gould leaves theXewton Theo logical Seminary, a Massachusetts Bap tist institution, because his views have swerved from Calvinism. St. Martin's, Canterbury, is believed to be the oldest church in Great Britain but the church in Dover Cab tie is a candidate for the distinction. A clergyman, in a lecture on temper ance, was reported aa saying: "Last Sunday a young man died in my neigh borhood, while I was preaching in a beastly state of intoxication." Prof. Gulliver, of Andover Seminary, complains that the institution is quot ed in Universalist pulpits, grog shops, and other low places as teaching a doc trine which we abhor. He declares that no Andover professor believes in probation after death. The London Guardian church paper says that in some cases canons of cathedrals whose salary was $4,000 a year are now only getting' $2,000, in consequence of the decrease in the val ue of land. In China there are two dozen mis sionaries who are also physicians. Eight of these are ladies. At Canton the Presbyterian hospital has treated as many as 60,000 out-door patients in a year. A pretty sight in the evening service of a church in Xewport, Vt., was the unfolding of a night blooming cereus, which was carried in by a parishoner. The blossoms attained their full size near the close of the service. The Itev. Dr. Hay Palmer, the best known of American hymnologists, will shortly celebrate his golden wedding. It is proposed by some of his friends to present him with a suitable testimonial of the occasion. Dean Burgon, preaching from the Cambridge University pulpit, recently said : "Foi my part, 1 am quite content to seek my ancestors in the garden of Eden ; let others, if they choose, ask for theirs in the garden called Zoological" Dr. Xewman Smyth's opening ser mon in his church at Xew Haven was from the text, "Arise, let us go hence." In the principal newspaper office of Xew Haven somabody blundered to such a frightful extent that his text was rendered, "Amen, let us go home." Thus are the best intentions of the most eminent clergymen sometimes per verted. "What salary do de Lord call you from, Mas'r V" asked a clergyman's col ored servant. "I get a thousand dollars hei e," said the clergyman, meekly. "An how much de Lord call you to?" was tho next question. "I expect $3,000," was the reply. "Mas'r,"- said the ser vant, solemnly, "whende Lord call you back from t'ree thousan' to one thou sand I spec He hurt He's voice before you come." Dr. Tresson, a Roman Catholic, was married in St. Louis, to Miss Duncin, a Presbyterian, and, in order to satisfy their religious scruples, two marriage ceremonies were performed by their re spective pastors. This is not counte nanced by tbe Roman Catholic official journal of the diocese, and it says the doctor has made "a covenant with hell and a league with the devil for a Prot estant wife." It appears that Protestant ministers are equally exempt with Catholic priests, under the statutes of Quebec, from revealing, in the witness box, private and confidential conversations with members of their flocks. Rev. James Bray, Congregational minister,' declined relating in court, something a member of his church had told him, , when J udge Jette declared he was le gally exempted from answering. The reverend gentleman was a witness in a divorce case. Economy )a Wealth. A father, accompanied by his little son, called at a drug store on one of the avenues and asked for a cheap sponge. He was one of our rich citizens, and as he spoke he fumbled with his massive gold watch chain, and looked worth a million. Tbe druggist put a lot of sponges be fore him, and he glanced through the lot ftnd asked how much they were. "All the way from 50 cents to 81," said the drug man. -Oh, but I want it for the boy's slate," said the citizen;. "it is hardly worth while to pay so much." " Well, then, these are what - you need," said the druggist, as he put out a collection of small hard sponges. "These are five cents each." The wealthy citizen fingered them over, and examined them one bv one. and still did not seem satisfied. 'Here are some at one cent each " said the druggist, who began to know his man, "rou might find something among these." ; : : ' ; Tbe citizen examined each one and still hesitated. At last he selected a small dark fragment, and holdln? itun said: . , . "This one seems to be imperfect. How much will it be?" "Xothlng," answered tbe druggist shortly, as he re-arranjed his stock of . sponges. "Have it done up?" Xo, said the citizen, handing it to the boy and following him out, when the youngster was heard to ask : Say, pa, ain't you going to give me the cent?" And the mournful answer floated back to the dragfctst: Mv son, do you think I am made of money?" The exercise of the will has very much to do in determining our physical condition.
