Three of the lair officers of§ _iarman Government have heen appo's ito pre pares report on the San boundary Question. - EThe Baltimore Gazette, whao sf first op posed the Cincinnati noire 3ns, comes out in an editorial urging -National Convention to / nominate ' Greeley and Brown. H Monterey has not been captured yet; but tbe poor city is poorly defended by a guard of SOO, and there are 8,000 revolutionists out aide, anxious, and of course confident, of £oon taking an inside position. The Saginaw Valley (Mich.) lumber milla are still silent, and employers and employ* -es have each declared their firm determina* lion not to budge. All has been peaceable thus far ,* but the several millß are strongly ■guarded to insure against possible damage. General Hancock has written a letter de ‘Uning his position on the Presidential ques tion. He declares that he will cheerfully support the person who may receive a two thirds vote at the Baltimore Convention, 'Which means that he intends to work and •.Tote for Horace Greeley.

The French National Assembly, on Satur day, ratified the treaty recently concluded by the Ambassadors of the French and Ger 2nan Governments for the final evacuation of i'rench territory by the Germans. The Com mittee to 'which the treaty was referred gives all credit for the successful negotia tions to the Assembly, bnt'studiously avoids mention of Thiers in connection therewith. The persons most prominently mentioned an connection with the temporary Chairman chip of the Baltimore Convention are John B. Baldwin, Thomas S. Bocock, and Jefferson Randolph, of Virginia; and Governor Eng lish, of Connecticut. The names of General James Shields, of Missouri; Senator Casser ly. of California, General McClemand. of Illinois, are talked of for permanent Presi dent. _ Hon. Charles Francis Adams having been interviewed by a New York correspondent, is reported as having said, in answer to a question as to what he thought of Mr. Gree ley as a candidate for the Presidency, that lie believed him (H. G.) to be an honest man; that the holding of public office would tend to temper the acerbities characterizing Mr. Greeley's life as an editor of a powerful journal. Mr. Adams also inclined to the opinion that Mr. Greeley's theories regarding Protection will undergo a radical change. General Howard has made his report about liis recent visit to Arizona. The General, taking a sensible view of the case, recom mends that General Crook be allowed to nee hall instead of blank cartridges, when ever, in his opinion, the exigencies of the case may require. In other words, the Gen eral believes that peace will he restored and secured better by the thousands of soldiers cent to the frontier, and ujurt for tb* sup pression of Indian hostilities, than by gen eral orders from Washington, providing for Peace Commissions to visit and negotiate with intractable savages. The trouble in Dr. Honard's case* now is, that the American Minister will not request the Spanish Government to pardon him be cause of the position he (the Minister) has assumed, that Honard is guilty of no crime’ Sharp official notes are said to have keen exchanged recently between the two Gov ernments. Mr. Secretary Fish seems to have muddled matters in this case as much, if not more, than he did in the Alabama Claims business. Early in March the Secre tary telegraphed our Charge d'Affaires in Madrid recognizing the citizenship of the .Doctor, and directing a remon strance against the proceedings of the Cuban Court-Martial as a violation of treaty stipulations, and demand ing the immediatejreleaseiof the prisoner. Three days later, Mr. Fish, in a letter to Tice President Colfax, declares that the evi dence against Dr. Honard was of a charac ter as would have convicted a party ac cneed of like off ence during our war. The Democratic National Convention meets in Baltimore to-morrow. Already there are gathered there delegations from a majority of the States, The dis organizing gad-dies, spawned from Admin istration patronage, are also on hand, eager lo take advantage of any possible hitch in the Convention proceedings. This element will, of course, fraternize with the small body •of irreconcilables and irresponsibles that are to meet in parlor council under the name and style of “Anti-Greeley Democrats,” and 'this conglomeration of odds and ends may attempt the nomination of aNatiou al ticket, composed of either gentlemen who will have too much sense and pride to ac cept, or too little of either of these qualities to command, the votes of a respectable mi nority. The Convention meets to indorse .and ratify the nominations made at Cin cinnati. and any side-show business, Whatever shape it may assume, will he pro ductive only of defeat and chagrin to its originators.

Charles Francis Adams on the Presidential Question. General Hancock Defines His Posi lion in Regard to the Rall!u«n> Nominee# TO-MOKEOW’S CONVENTION-FACIS AND SPECULATIONS. Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune. Baltimore, July 7.—Although but one working day intervenes between now and the assembling of the Convention there has been, yet, but little excitement developed at this point* About one-half of the dele gates have as yet arrived, although the bal ance are expected on the Southern and West ern trains to-night, and Eastern trams to-morrow morning* There are enough dele gates and representative men here, however, to forecast how the main body of the Con vention desires to act, uninfluenced by other portions* Since the Greeley movement was inaugurated, and beginning at Cincin nati itself, the politicians have Buttered one constant and oon- succession of defeats, where tney have sought interference, and it would fie ® m that this Convention is but to follow out this singular law of events in again overwhelming intrigue by giving Greeley a straight-out nomination* Ever since the .Cincinnati Convention, even those pol iticians who were the most favorable to Greeley have been engaged in making nice points as to whether it would benefit the Democratic party the most or hurt Greeley the least to indorse him, to make no nomination whatever, or to openly «”■?, iim the vote of the Convention, u hue these schemers and manipulators have been engaged in this pleasant, intellectual, and political curiosity,the general movement has gone on, and gained in strength, until now it would seem as if the Convention would not listen to any other policy than that of a straight-nomination. How ever, this is to he gathered only from the outside talk of the delegates and from the real sentiment here, which ran Greeley ward with a tremendous force. The old heads have not come toeothw, nor has there been any opportunity for the exercise of party discipline for the influence of cau cusing the entire delegation. A very great number of the delegates chosen to the Con vention are young men, who. for the first time, appeared on the Isational theatre, and whose opinions as to the mode of managing the Convention, save on the one point of indorsing the Greeley and Brown ticket, remained to be found and developed* On this point, among delegates of stronger influence than in numbers, there is a very great preponderance of opinion. The number of delegates favorable to Greeley is estimated, after careful count, as high as 000 out of the 702 delegates who compose the body, and even higher figures are claimed by some of Mr. Oxcclcv’o enthusiastic friends. TUe must formidable minority is that of the Pennsyl vania delegation, hut a decioed major ity of that delegation, including Gov ernor Bigler, is for the Cincinnati ticket. The question most discussed to-day is not whether Greeley shall be supported or not, hntwhat mode is best adapted to secnre him the largest Democratic and Liberal Re publican vote. On this qnestion there is a great difference of opinion, and a good deal of quiet discussion without any acrimony. As before stated the prevalent sentiment seems to favor a straight-out nomination.bnt the Vir ginia and other strong Greeley delegations are understood to prefer the form of indors ing Greeley by a resolution. It is argued that this mode will quite as effectually bind the party as the other, and, at the same time, will tend less than the other to repel Republican votes from the ticket. On the other hand, the advocates of straight-out reflations say that this formis best adapt ed to concentrate the Democratic vote on Greeley, and that the Republican dis posal to go to his support will be more likely to do so when they, have this guarantee of his election. Delegates from North Carolina, Alabama, and Missippi favor a straight-oat nomination; but it may be assured that the balance of the Southern delegates on this point will favor whatever line of action is deemed most advisable by the Democrats and Liberal Republicans from those States, such as Pennsylvania, Indiana, New York, and Illinois, which are regarded as the battle-ground of the present coolest. The Pennsylvania delegation, as usual,is at logger-heads inregard to platform, candidates, and about everythiog eLe. Thirty-six delegates from this State, headed by Governor Bigler, are for a straight-out nomination of Greeley. The other twenty iwo, headed by the Hon. Wm. Wallace, the Chairman of the delegation, are in favor of only an indorsement. Wallace argnes that it would he both unwise and impolitic to make a straight-out nomination; as it would be difllcult under such circamstauces to get the Republicans of bis State to recognize and support it. The delegation will have a meeting to-morrow to settle its differences. The situation in regard to the permanent Chairmanship of the Convention is very mnch mixed. The temporary Chairmanship •will certainly go to the South, if that sec tion can unite on a candidate. As to the permanent presiding officer it can only be averred that it Trill be given to that State which the Convention considers the most important battle ground in the coming Pxesidential contest. Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune. Washington, July 7.—The Patriot to mor row will urge upon the Baltimore Conven tion the regular nomination of Greeley as the candidate of the Democracy. There are many of the Southern delegates passing through here who desire only the iuGorecmcnt o£ tho Cincinnati platform without a nomination. Private information is to the effect that a number of Now England delegates are on the way to Baltimore pledged to bolt in case Greeley is either to be nominated or in dorsed. [To the Associated Press.] New York, July 7. — A Baltimore special mentions as a change In the programme, that, neither Phillip Francis Thomas, or Governor Vance stands a chance for Tempo iary Chairman of the Demooratio Conven tion, and that John B. Baldwin, of Virginia, is now prominent, while Thomas S. Bocock and Jffferson Handolph, of the same State, and Governor English, of Connecticut, are also spoken of. The names of General James Shields, of Mis somi, and Senator Casserly, of California, are talked of for permanent President, though General McCiernand still has the inside track. Tbe New York delegation have appointed v?*X eri ? or Hoffman, Chairman. There seems uttie doubt that Greeley will be nest to unanimously nominated on the first ballot, it is not believed that the Bolters' Con vention will even assemble.

Put these men in nomination, ballot for CHARLES FRANCIS ADAMS ON THE PRESIDENTIAL QUESTION. Special DespatoU to Tie OUcago Tribune. Aew York, July 7.—One of the New York correspondents at Geneva, having failed to extract any information from Hon. Charles Adams regarding the Alabama Arbitration, proceeded to question that gentleman about American politics, and succeeded in striking up quite a conversation. The following is an extract: Correspondent. I have been ashed to as certain your views, in regard to the coming i ie.Hidential election. Your candidature at me Cincinnati Convention was, no doubt a surprise for you. Mr. Adams. In one sense it was, certainly a surprise; namely, that it was wholly un solicited on my part. I have the greatest ob jection to what I .may term managed candidatures of any kind. I have made it the guiding principle of my career to decline no ofler of public employment that I could accept with honor and credit and a prospect of being useful, and never to become an of fice-seeker of any kind. My unwillingness to intrigue, or even to acquiesce in the in trignes of others, with a view to my own promotion to a post of dignity is so great that I feel sure I could never over come it, and besides that there is nothing even in a candidature for the Presidency that wonld induce me to at tempt such a conquest of my own inclinations. Correspondent, "Would yon have accepted the nomination had it been offered by chafe Convention! , ?'. r - Adams. Your question is a somewhat diliioultone to answer. My views, as you will remember, were laid before that Con vention by letter, and inasmuch as that let ter laid down a programme of otinciples. it at least, contained an intimation of my will ingness to accent a candidature under cer tain conditions. Go/reepondent. In the event of the Dem ocratic Convention at Baltimore deoidiog to nominate a candidate not of its own party would you accept its nomination of your self? . J Mr. Adams, x must; again refer yon to my letter laid before the Cincinnati Con vention. 1 have nothing to add or to take irom the declarations I then made. I am certainly not prepared to say that I should decline a candidature which would not re quire of me any sacrifice of the convictions I have always substantially held. - Correspondent, What is your opinion of Mr.'Greeley’s strength in the canvass, and what kina of a President would he make ? Mr. Adams, in reply, said he had no per sonal knowledge of Mr. Greeley. He believ ed him to be an honest and well-meaning • man, but referred to his impetuosity of temper in a controversy with brother editors his readiness to accept the ories. and to hold them Office, however may have a sobering influence upon him, as it has bad, ere now,jOn many other men of his disposition. Correspondent. But what most one think ol the prospects of • the i ree-Trade move ment, in the event of his election i Mr. Adams. lam inclined to believe that Mr. Greeley will consent to temper the rigor of hm principles on that question; that he will show himself more tolerant, more for bearing than he is generally when the views of others clash with his own. True lie will Lave learned this great . i i aomowbat tardily, but will be better for tbeknowl eclee, however late it came. The correspondent touched on the present tendency of the United States to centralism, on which subject Mr. Adams continued: Yes, I can hardly say how strongly I feel on the question of State Eights. The prob lem is, of course, to maintain a proper bal ance of power between State and country; but, where any doubt arises, Ithinkweonght always to give the State-the benefit of it. We cannot be too careful not to weaken that local energy and independence, the main tenance or creation of which is now the problem of all enlightened statesmanship ol all the world—the leading question of European politics from the Danube to the Seine. If events have any positive teaching, what we have lately witnessed in Europe ought to be conclusive, as to the soundness ! of those views on the subject which I hold in common with many others. Strengthen the ties between separate parts of the conn try as much as you like, bat do not let it be at the expense of the vigor and vitality of any of those parts. Bind the fagots firmly together, if you will, but remember that too much tension will snap the cord.” THE NEW YORK WORLD’S VIEWS AS TO THE PROGRAMME TO BE FOLLOWED AT New York, Jnly 7. —The T VorhVs special from Baltimore says : The question whether Greeley will or will not be accepted by the Convention has, of coarse.-ceased to be seri ously entertained. Still the sham is kept up of debating the question, and, for this pur pose, it has been subdivided. Three proposi tions are before the delegates : First, the Missouri proposition to make no nomination and leave the whole party to swing over by force of inevitable attraction to. the accept ance of the Cincinnati ticket, Second, to simply adopt a resolution indorsing the Cincinnati candidates and platform. Third, to nominate Greeley and Brown, and vote for them, and adopt them as the regular Democratic candidates. The last proposi tion will undoubtedly prevail, and there seems to be little donbt that Mr. Greeley will be next to unanimously nominated on the first ballot. There was a rumor this afternoon that Governor Hoffman might possibly accept the responsibility of pre senting Mr. Greeley’s name to the Conven tion, but itnow seems more probable that either he or Lieutenant Governor Beach will have to return to Albany by Monday morning. rN'DIANA. POLITICS. Special UcopntcU to The Chicago Tribano. Indianapolis, July 7.— W. C. Depauw, the Democratic nominee for Lieutenant Gov ernor, has assured all of his Methodist brethern who have asked him whether he intended to accept the nomination and re- U'ain on the ticket, that, under no circum stances, would he do so, yet ho does not decline, and it is now being given out by the leading Democrats that he will neither decline nor accept, and that he will b© voted for as all other candidates are. This is an arrangement to draw Methodist support from the Republicans, and use that vote so faras possible to aid in putting Mr. Hendricks into tho Senate cf the United States again. Senator Morton left for tho East this even ing, and will be absent same days. A Convention, to be composed of one dele gate from each county in the State, will meet in this city on Wednesday of this week, to put in nomination a candidate for Con gresa-at-Large, on the Republican State ticket. The candidates spoken of are Hon. Wil liam Williams of tbe Tenth District, Gener al Ben. Spooner of the Third, and General Nathan Kimball, of this District. The Republican State Central Committee will meet on the same day, and arrange a large number of appointments for dis tinguished speakers for other States. GENERAL HANCOCK DEFINES HIS PO SITION. New York, July 7.— General Hancock haa written a letter to a friend in this city de fining his position in the coming canvass. He will cheerfully support any one who may receive two-thirds of the support of the Con vention at Baltimore, and, in any other con tingency, he feels that he conld be silent until the extent of any opposition to Greeley is developed. Telegraphic Brevities* Governor Smith has leaned an order to the colored military organizations of Savannah, Ga., known as the Lincoln Union Guards, to hold an election for commis sioned officers. This is the first instance of the kind in that State. —A break occurred yesterday in the Erie Canai, at Port Jackson, which will require five or eix days to repair. —Ground will he broken for the North Pa cific Railroad at Saneilito, opposite Sin Francisco, to-morrow. —The Harvard and Yale Freshmen crew, have withdrawn from the coming regatta at Bobton. This will have no effect, however, on the University race, in which centers tbe chief interest. —Three of tbe boys who were injured by the explosion of fireworks at South Boston, Friday evening, have since died. them in the • usual way, and so establish their title to recognition aa representatives of the Democracy, and, by this bold and necessary step, bring up the whole of the party to their support. It will not become yon to throw on the rank and file a responsibility from which they look to yon to relieve them, and which it is your bonnden duty to assume. It is the manifest course.” The large hall of the Maryland lustltnte baa been engaged forlthe meeting called by the circular issued from New York, feted the 20th of dune, and signed by Joseph R. Flanders. Chairman, and John J. VanAUen, Secretary. This circul »r Invites all Demo crats, in every part ot the Union, opposed to the nwnination of Horace Greeley at Baltimore, and who will not support him if nominated, to attend at Baltimore on the Bth of July (Monday ), to confer and take such action as may be deemed advisable. The preliminary meeting under this call will be held at 2 p. m. to-morrow, at the Institute. Mr. Van Allen, who signed the circular as Secretary, who is from Schuyler County, New York, is here, and lays that all the States will be represented in their preliminary meeting to morrow. BALTIMORE. CHICAGO, MONDAY, JULY 8, 1872—SIX PAGES. FOREIGN. The Release of Dr. Houard Still Delayed. Ratification of the Evacuation Treaty Between France and Germany. SPAIN. Madrid, July c. —The delay which has taken place in fulfilment of the act of Dr. Houard's release from prison by the Spanish Government is occasioned by the fact that SenorMartos requires, on the part of the King's Cabinet, that the United States Min ister in Madrid shall ask that Honard be pardoned by His Majesty, Amadeus. The American Minister refuses to do this, be cause the position he has assumed ie, that Honard is not guilty of crime, and is unjustlylheld in detention by the Span iards. Sharp official notes have been ex changed between the Spanish Foreign Office and the American Legation, and Ministerial telegrams have been received from Wash ington on the subject. New York, July 7.— Secretary Fish, on March 0, telegraphed our Charge at Madrid rrecogniz’Dß the citizenship of Dr. Houard, ana directing a remonstrance against the proceedings of the Cuban Court-Martial as a violation of the provisions of the treaty, and to ask the immediate release ef the prisoner. Three days later, Fish wrote, in a letter to \ ice President Colfax,which is pnolished to-’ day. reviewing Dr. Howard's case in a man ner by no means favorable to the prisoner. TheSeoretary shows that the loag residence °| Dr* Houard in Cuba, and his enjoyment of certain privileges, to which are attached the right to become a Spanish subject, in some degree justified the authorities m regarding Dr. Houard as sub let to their jurisdiction; while i other hand, he says nothiugwhatever had been brought forward in the Doctor's behalf to illustrate, to prove, his assertion. * at any time, of American citizeuohip, until the misfortune of his arrest and imprison ment occurred. Secretary Fish, in this letter, mes on to review the evidence against Dr. i D. Jdouard, and declares it was of a character I that would have convicted a nartv I accused of offence during our war. The. Secretary adds : “ The strong point which prevents the interven tion of this Government in behalf of Houard from becoming efficacious for his release is the fact that he has been regularly tried and lound constituted tribunal m the Island of Cuba.” FRANCE. Paius, July 7.—Ratifications- of the Treaty wiih Germany for the evacuation of France, were exchanged to-day. The bill to raise- a loan to meet the financial obligations of tho trenty will be introduced in tbe Assembly to morrow. • • OHIO. Further Particulars of the IWHne Disaster ■«ar JLtmaville. special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune Alliance, O, July 7.— The following are' farther particulars of the mine-disaster near Limavillo: The mine is a new one, and the shaft tops towards the vein, striking it at a depth of seventy-live feet, and following the vein as it slightly ascends for a short dis tance. In tbe depression near the junction of the elope and shaft a furnace is used for expelling foul air. On Wednesday the foal air and gas caught fire from tho fnruace, and the fiames communicated with the wooden supports to tho roof. The boy, aged about J. wbq was attending the furnace, ran into the mine to alarm his father and the nine teen miners msido. Ten men in tho outer shaft were notified, but the boy and ten further in were .cut oft, A fire engine was brought from Ravenna as soon as possible, and the llames extinguished. A portion of the roof of the mine fell in, owing to the burning of the supports, which made the work of recovery slow and tedious. Yestefday evening seven bodies had been recovored, when a fresh i hrq occurred, and this was finally extin- I guished at 3 o'clock this morning, and the j remaining three bodies, including that of the brave boy, were brought out. 1 bey wore found as far back as they could ?et in tho rooms of the mine. They were tinned soon after their removal. Their corpses were blackened and almost indistin guishable. The excitement is intense, and crowds from all over the country are Hocking to the scene of the disaster. The following is a . the . victims : Joseph Evans, John Wells, foreigners; Thomas Mann, Joseph Cqtry, of Limavillo ; Georco Halford, boy, of Atwater. O.; Wm. Roberts.

A Yomh ef Twelve ITlardered by a Man of £jßfa‘7'Blx-Faiher Gb7<zzl'b Lectareii Cincinnati, 0., July 7.—A shocking trage dy wan enacted here thisafternoon. in which a boy 12 years old, named Frank Sohikk, the son of a widow, was shot and killed by the Kev. Samuel J. Browne, an aged local minister of the Methodist Church. It nppcais that Mr. Browne has bean for some time annoyed by boys, who, in solte of repeated remonstrances* have entered his premises to take his fruit and commit other depredations. To day a nnmber of boys were playing ball outside, when the ball was thrown into Mr. Browne’s yard. Young . Sclnkk entered the promises to recover the ball; when the old man Heed at him with sings, one of the pieces striking him in the breast, indicting a wound from the effect of which the boy died. Browne was arrested by two officers, and was subse quently released in $50,000 bail. The terri ble affair has created great ex citement in the neighborhood of the Brighton House, near which it occurred. A large crowd assembled to-night in the vicinity of Browne’s house, which is guard ed by a detachment of police, and there is danger from their temper that they will take the law into their own hands should Browne be found. It is a most remarkable case, and appears hard to account far, save upon the presumption that Browne is not in his right mind. He is 86 years old, ope of the oldest citizens, and has been con sidered hitherto above reproach. For some time be has been qnite childish. He owns property to the amount of several hundred thousand dollars. Father Gavazzi, of the Free Church of Italy, spoke twice to-day to immense con gregations, it being necessary on both ocea ns toprovido extra accommodations for the audiences. Collections were taken each time for the Freo Church movement. He will remain here until Saturday, probably speaking each night, and will go hence to Louisville, and thence to Indianapolis.

Mr. Callahan, in Reynolds County, by a Band of Disguised Pirn. St. Louis, July 7.—A few days ago a re port reached here of the severe flogging of rbe Rev. Thoe. Callahan, near Centerville Reynolds Connty. Mo., on the night of Jane 23. by a band of disguised men. Yester day Callahan arrived here, having walked from Centerville to Rolla, a hundred and twenty miles, where he took the railroad for this cit.v. He made a long statement to United States Marshal comb and United States Commissioner Ea ton, to the effect that he was Chaplain of the Forty-eighth Infantry daring the war; went to Reynolds "County about a year ago from Clinton, lowa, and was a strong Republican in poli tics. His troubles first originated from pol itics, but the whipping grew out of the fact that last November the Court House of Reynolds Countv was burned, and again in May, destroying all the County Rec ords.

Callahan further stated that there is a corrupt Court* House ring in Rejmolds County against whom he was strongly opposed, and who were inter- i ested in the destruction of the county rec- I olds to cover up their frauds inland titles.

Among the many graceful things in na ture, unnoticed by ninety-nine out of a hundred persons, aro the elegantly-easy cotillon parties of the gnats. True, the ac tors do not move on “light, fantastic toe”— they are too ethereal for that—but on the wing; nor are they paired off into couples, for each seems to act independently of every other, yet in concert with the rest; nor is the set confined to eight or eighty, or even eight hundred, but is as numerous sometimes as a swarm of bees; but no one can watch their movements without being convinced that they are en gaged :iu amusement, and that, so far«mg is possible for gnats, the amusement is''a dance. Noy is this amusement confined to any one species, but extends through the whole Cahx family, from the almost invisible sand-fly. the hrulot, or burning-fly, of one Southern Be A*board and of the West Indies, —the most, venomous creature. *2 r • size * . m existence, —to the galbnipper, or gigantic-belted mosquito that,fortunately forhuman oomfort con fines himself usually to the dark swamp or uncultivated wild, and may be observed practised sometimes bv vinegar-gnats house flies, ichneumon flies, and others * Their favorite time for indulging this sport is the warm season of the year, when the sun sends his rays aslant through the moist sir beloro the day is wholly exhaled in the morning, or after the evening damps are preparing to descend. Then a person, with an eye for such things, may discover them over almost every quarter of an acre of the world's surface, sometimes a dozen parties of pleasure, of various numbers, within the limits of an ordinary garden, wheeling joy oi sly around their several centres, as if eager to throw off some of the exuberance of life. Looking at them simply as objects in mo tion, without seeking to know their species or their aims, the eye is charmed with an endless variety of graceful movements. The actors are bo swift, that it is impossible to distinguish their forms, or to more than guess at their size. Nothing is discernible bnt a multitude of silver-like streaks which mark the several tracks, and combine to form a gauzy tissue in the air. . The tracks are all more or less circular and involved, no two having the same plane of revolution, but inclined to each other at ev ery angle, while they all-recognize a general centre that is by no means fixed, some of the gyrations being horizontal, some verti cal, some oblique, while many of them are in a direction the reverse of toe majority. sometimes, as if by universal consent, the animated globe suddenly expands to many times its former diameter, making one think of an explosion: then, after ale w seconds, or perhaps more than a minute, the mass con tracts to its normal dimensions. Sometimes, again, the movers so reduce their several or eeei?; almost a compact mass, while the capidityof motion continues the i same, as is attested by the silver-like streak, ana yon are puzzled to conceive how they manage to move without colliding:, indeed, 52® 1 - confidently to see some of them iiuuenng with broken wing to the earth; but they never fall, they never collide. Their exceeding quickness of motion is such that, it is said, they can glide nnwet between the drops of falling rain when overtakes by a shower, and, after the rain is over, that they will come together as before. HEDICAL AND SURGICAL NOTES, Increase of Insanity. —Dr. Mandsley, ■writing in the Mtdical Journal, ad nnis that there is more insanity, and more installcea of its occurrence, in proportion to the population, now thanjformerly—say gen-- erations ago; but that so many more persons should oe going mad now than twenty-five years ago, is a snppofition which he pro nounces not probable in Itself, and not sup ported by facts. There is. he says, abundant evidence of a gradually, improved registra tion of insanity, and a great increase in the returns in consequence of that improvement; but he denies that there is, as yet, any satis* factory evidence of any more. Bullet in the Brain —A most singular case is recorded by Dr. Howard, iu a recent number of the American Journal of Medical science. The patient was a soldier in the I’orty-fourth Indiana Infantry, The bullet entered the skull at a great distance from the point where it penetrated the scalp. It made at first a sort of tran-door fracture, and gave rise to but few symptoms. When, two weeks afterward, symptoms appeared threatening death, the presence of the bullet in the brain was diagnosed by a hair which was found sticking out of the aperture iu the bone, and which the ballet had evi dently carried with it. The skull was trepnined; the ball was found deeply buried in the brain, and was removed. The patient made a complete recovery, and snbseqnently etjovea robust health in the cavalry service. A Professional Memento.— An interest ing memento of tne discoverer of vaccina tion has recently been presented to the Royal College of Physicians, England, by Sir John W, Fisher. It consists of a cow r s horn, beautifully polished, presented to Sir J. W. Fisher, in the year ISIS, by Dr. Jen* ner, and polished by himself. Tne gift was made in grateful acknowledgment of ser vices rendered to Jeuner’s sick children by Dr, Fisher,, then a medical assistant in Soho. The horn is now mounted in silver, and bears an appropriate inscription stating the circumstanced under which it was presented to the college. Dr. Borrows, the President, in asking the acceptance of the horn, stated that it had probably beau taken from one of Dr. JennePs favorite cows on which he had made his experiments in vaccination, Vaccinati on and- Re vaccination.— From an official report made on the subject, it appears that in the army of Bavaria revac cination has been cumpnlsory since 1843; and from that date until 1857—a period of 14 years—not a single case of unmodified small pox occurred, nor a single death from the disease. Of the nearly 50.000revaccinations in the Prussian army, only about one-third were perfectly successful—resembling, that is, the results of a primary vaccination so closely as scarcely to be distinguished from it; and the remainingtwo-thirdsbeingmore orless modified, or failing entirely. Inccn nnectioh with these facts, the state ment ,is also made that the distinguished English vaccinators. Dr. Marson, in 40,000 vaccinations. Dr. Sveese, m as many more, Sir Wm, Jenuer. in the cases of 13.000 sick children and adults in London, and Dr. West, of the Children’s Hospital, as to 28,000 children—all concur in saying tbat they have never seen any other disease than that of vaccinia communicated with the vaccine. • Electric Probf. for Wounds.— M. Trouve haslaiely esbib.ted before the Scientific Association of France his ingenious probe for the search and extraction of foreign bodies remaining in wounds. This appara tus consists of three distinct paits, namely, a battery, a probe, and an indicator. In principle, it is founded on the difference m condnctibilit.y between metals and other bodies. The battery is formed of a zinc and carbon element, inclosed in a case of hardened India-rubber hermetically seal ed, the exciting liquid being bisalohide of mercury. The probe is a pipe, flexible or rigid, constructed so that tne preliminary nrobing may be effected, and then the stylets of the indicating appartus may be introdne* ed. Phe indicatoro -ntameia its interior a very small electro-magnet, with a vibrator and two small rods of steel, very sharp, and insulated from each other; and as soon as these points, which are iu connection with the battery, touch any metallic substance, tne vibrator begins to move; if the metal is lead, the trembler vibrates regularly; if of iron or copper, trembler has a ierkv movement. J * Kossuth on a new [Treatment of the Gout.— Louis Kossuth communicates to the A cue Freie Fressc of Vienna the remarkable curative properties possessed by a grotto near Pistoles, in the valley of Lncqnes and .cisa, the virtues of which consist in radi cally curing the gout, the treatment being easily followed, and lasting from eight to fifteen days. According to M. Kossuth’s account, the patient, covered with a bathing gown, decends into the grotto, which is weli lighted. There ho has only to sit and admire the stalactites, or converse with his .friends. After ten minutes he sweats profusely; but not disagreeably. In an hoar he is taken out, wrapped in a flannel cover ing. and. aff or reposing a little, is subjected to a cold shower-bath. The curative prin cipie of this grotto is, however, an enigma. In the warmest parts the air does not show more than S3 to 2-4 degrees (centigrade), and is less oppressive than the air outside; the water Is still colder, bat is is heated by the air, the chemical composition of which re eomblea that of atmospheric air, the only difference being a slight addition of azDte. Kossuth attributes the remarkable qualities of the grotto to electro-magnetic agents, and in this opinion he is probably correct. . Disinfectants.— M. Pille has published in the Archives Medicales Beiges an interesting article “.On the Value of a Disinfectant,” iu. wnicb he says we must not only get rid of olienMve smells, but of all other products of. decomposition, and that any substance which only effects one of those ends is a very imperfect disinfectant. He then passes in review some of the disinfectants in common use. Sulphate of iron, he considers, is useful from its action in decomposing ammonia car- Locate ond enlphohydrato. Percliloride of iron, besides this, precipitates aibnminoid matters, and acts also by its chlorine. Lime disinfects organic matters, fixiag carbonic acid and sulphuretted hydrogen, and decomposing hyarosnlphate of am monia. The permanganate of potassium is a most energetic oxidizing agent, decompos ing sulphuretted hydrogen, destroying or ganic matter, and^ acting upon all fixed com pounds with which it comes in contact. Chlorate of potassium may be used to disen gage chlorine in places like cesspools, that are not easy to reach by other means. Chloride of lime acts by the chlorine it sets free, and chemicaUy decomposes most foal gases. Carbolic acid hinders the formation of miasms, and is, therefore, a good preven tive of epidemics. Mortality as Affected uy Marriage.— In a paper read by M. Bertiiion before the Academy of Medicine of Paris, the author using as evidence the statistics of France. Holland, and Belgium—strongly maintaned the healthful influence of conjugal associa tion as compared with that of celibacy. The figures show that, between the ages of 20and 83 years, 1.000 married men furnished G deaths; 1,000 bachelors. 10 deaths; and 1,000 widowers, 22 deaths. From 30 to 35 years of age, the same classes, respectively, famish 7.11 and 171-2 deaths. From 35 to 40 years of age, the mortality is 71-2,13, and 171-2 per 3,000 respectively. And so on in a series of tables for all ages, the married man has greater longevity than the single mas. The same advantage of the married state obtains in the case of females, though up to the age of 30 the difference is notsoaopar* ent as in the other sex. From 30 to 35 the mortality is 11 per 1,000 for single women, and only 0 per 1,000 for married women: and this difference increases np to the age of 55. Thus from 50 to 55 years of age, 1,000 wives furnish only 15 or 1C deaths, while as many single women or widows furnish 26 or 27. This advantage retains very notable beyond that age. diminishing but little. In France, however, nnder 25, and in Paris, under 20 years of age, marriage, is far from favorable, bnt even injurious, as also in the case of males.' The mortality of unmarried girls of from 15 to 20 is 753 per 1,000; the mortality of wives of the same age being 11 SC. The mortality of girls from 20 to 25 is 8,22; of wives of the same age, 9.92.

Selby Watson, recently tried at the Old Bailey for the murder of his wife, has* forwarded to- the editor of the London Globe 1 - a document which, it is stated, wan written by Mr. Watson during his-confinement in BorhemongerLane Jail, entitled:- “Dead a Contemplation.” It is divided into several sections, the first of which begins as follows: “She- is dead. She lies motionless. That which animated her, animates her no- longer. The voice which, foreo many years, addressed thee so famil iarly is dnmb. Thou dost address her; thou lavishest, on her the terms of endear ment with which thouwast accustomed to please her ear, but to all that thou utterest the only reply is silence.” Then, describ ing the sensations of awe which crowd in upon him as he looks unon the corpse, he proceeds in the second, para graph to-call to memory the place his wife has vacated by the seat she has left empty. The third stanza treats of the souvenirs of old and happier times which he discovers in her boxes and oases: “A scrap-of paper, a iittie note written in the days of her court ship, a sprig of some plant carefully wrap ped up, and packets of letters.” The next paragraph reasons in favor of the immortal ity of the soul, looks-forward as a believer in that immortality to a future condition of united happiness in “a state free froun crossness;” and as a Christian toiaside in * a place prepared for Christ’s- followers.” ihe rest of this strange rhapsody is in keep ing with these specimens of its composi tion. * Testimonials. I r uppoee It la true that women work for o thers w ith lees expectation of reward than men. and give themselves to labors of self sacrifice witu mnoh less thought of seif. At least this is erne unless woman goes into some public perform ance, where notoriety has its attractions, and BOme 081136 to ride it man-fashion, when I think she becomes lust as eager lor applause and just as willing that self-sacrifice should re sell m self elevation as man. For her, usually, are not those unbought “ presentations," which are forced upon firemen, philanthropists, legis lators. railroad-men, and tne superintendents of the moral instruction of the yoang. These are almost always pleasing and unexpected tributes to worth and modesty, and must be received with satisfaction when the pnniio service rea oeredhas not been with a view to procure them, we should say that one ou<ht to be most liable to receive a “ testimonial,” who, being a super intendent of any sort, did not superintend with a view to getting it. But “ testimonials ” have become eo common that a modest man ought really to be afraid to do hla simple duty, for fear his motives will be misconstrued. Yet there are instances of very worthy men who have had things publicly presented to them. It is the ohEsedageof gilts and the reward of private virtue. And the presentations have become so frequent that we wish there were a little more variety in them. There never wae much sense in giving a gallant fellow a big speaking-tram pet to carry home to aid him in hia Intercourse with his family ; and the festive loe-pltoher has become a too nnlversalefgn of absolute devotion to the public interest. Tue lack of one will soon be proof that a man is a knave. The legislative cano with the gold head, also. Is getting to be i ecognized as the sign or the immaculate public servant, as the Inscription on it testifies, and the steps cf suspicion must ere long dog him who doesnot carry one. The “ testimonial” business is in tinth a little demoralizing, almost as mnoh so as the “donation;” and the demoralization has extended even to onr language, so that a perfectly respectable man is often obliged to see Mmself “made the recipient of” this and that it would bamuehDetter, if testimonials mast be to give a men a bairel of flour or a keg of ovs ters, and let him eat himself at once book into the ranks of ordinary men —From Warner’s Back Log Studies, in Scribner’s for July. > —Beware of the peripatetic scann) who > sells a patent powder to prevent theexplo > sion of kerosene lamps.
