According to telegraphic despatch and other information, Mr. Stanley is disposed to act on liis own account en the banks of the Congo. The ex-reporter of the New York Herald a.-pircs to found a dynasty. The i a.si is notfjuite impracticable, and we s formed, while in the latter j "" ' - . journalist lane up tne sceptre. lurones have been occupied by sons of advocates and innkeepers, like Bernadotte and Murat; by former sub-lieutenants, like Bonaparte; t . . .4.. v t.: i.Aw.vr.. V,.. j so far, we have never seen a newspaper re porter. It was reserved for the nineteenth century to show the press as becoming a nursery of kings." From the day on which the .Sacred College should have proclaimed Pope some Don Margotts, journalism, which, it has been the fasLion to call the fonrth power in the State, will rise two steps in the ladder and will become the second power. In the meantime, Stanley is actively em ploying the money of geographers to pur chase iii-; crown. Neither does that cause us any vexation, for the misad ventuies or geographical societies do not afiect us be yond measure. If we are to believe tele grams from Am-terdam, Stanley is signing treaties with the pet t3r Kings on both banks of the (.' ii2o. At Uast he signs them; as for the Afiie.iu Monarch?, as thej never learned to write, they make a mark at the bottom of the parchment. We must ac knowledge that Stanley I. is acting very correctly from a diplomatic point of view; his treaties are drawn up in French, which, as is well known is the diplomatic language and are. countersigned by his -lieutenant, named Walk, who probably exercises the functions of keeper of seals on the banks of the Congo. One of these treaties which pas-ed with King Jongo de Selo, recognizes the sovereignty of the Comite d'Etudes Haul Congo, that is to say, with Stanlej'. After that promising commencement the treaties st ipulates a series a series of priv ilege, to Mr. Stanley and the committee. 1 "ir-t. The right to trade and reside in the country. Second. Obligations to furnish laborers, etc. In return for which Mr. St inley and the committee engage to pay Jongo and his de scendant :m annual pension of two pieces of cloth. A similar treaty was passed with the King, or a King a of Manyanga. One of Mr. Stanley's aide- de-camp was thus sible to say, with a little adaptation of the fact-: We are now masters of the coun try between Manyangsi and Stanley Pool." Those were probably the treaties alluded to in a despatch from Lisbon, which states that they have caused some surprise as he represents no constituted government. Stanlei' is, indeed, only the representa-' tive of an international geographical asso- j ciation, but it was probably for that reason i and to meet objections that he hastened to form a government of his own. As chief of his own Government he can make an nexations, and later on he will get his Gov ernment and his annexations recognized. j It is said, besides, that the new King had no idea ol making his subjects happy in j the usual manner that is to say, by grant- ing mem eoii-uuuionai nnerties. as a former journalist, he knows what these are ! worth, and feels, no doubt, a certain con tempt Ii for the liberties of the public he de fended when he was a part .f the people him-ell". A letter we have before us .says in fact: Stanley is of a pi-isionsite and vio lent dispo.-iiion, accustomed to command de.-potiealIy, and treats the natives of the u- Ie-.-r.f hi- Peruvian hark."

Frcm San Francisco per W. G. Irwin Frightful Eartliauake in Java Over 75,00' Lives Lost Full Particulars- London, August 20. The latest advices from Batavia, the capital of Java, show that the vol cauic eruptions in that Island are much more serious than at first indicated. Much of the nor thern portion of the Island was corered with forests, which were soon in one great blaze. The red-hot vomiting from the craters had set the trees on fire and the giants of the woods fell one after another like so many shears of wheat before a gale. As the eruptions in creased in frequency and violence, the disturb ance of th waters surrounding the coast became more and more violent. Three wavr-s came overwhelming over a marshy plain along the shore, suddenly engulfiug rish erniebs' lude huts, and turning swiftly back, swept away almost every vestige of a whole hamlet. A second before it had been a bustling village.

A gale rose from the eastward at 8 A. m., when a hundred dories were away from the vessels overhauling the trawls. Captain Ililler reports scores of dories were turned upside down, and wreckage was strewn in every direction along his track coming east ward. A Freuch bark lost four dories and all the crew.. It is computed from all sources of information that one hundred dories and eighty men were lost in the storm. Most of the dories were swept by waves from the schooners' decks, and the remainder collapsed in the sea. London, August 31st. The Manchester Guar dian, in its commercial article, says ; Sailers find it dirJSciut to make progress. Stocks are accumulating and orders expiring rapidly.

In Male Attire- lava, a field of destruction and ruin. Not a sin gle crop in Java will be saved. At tbd entrant of Batavia was a birye jroun of houses, extending alon the shore and occu pied by Chinam: u. This portion of the city was entirely swept away and of the twt-nty-five thous and Chinese who lived iu this swampy plain it is hardly probable that more than five thousand managed to save their lives. Of thirty-five hnndred Europeans. and Ameri cans iu Batavia, perhaps" eight hundred have prish&d. It is impossible to make any estimate of ths great pecuniary loss. Anjer, the Euro pean and American quarter, was first over whelmed by rocks, mud, and lava from the crat er, and then the waters came up and swtdlowed the ruins, leaving nothing to mark the site, and causing the loss of somewhere in the neighbor hood f two hundred lives of the inhabitants and those who had tried to find a refuge there. Ban tam, once a prosperous native city, but practi e.tlly abandoned by Europeans many years ago, wits entirely covered by water, and there must have been from twelve hundred to fifteen hund peopie drowned there. The Island of Zerand, just oil' the coast was completely inundated, and not a soul remains on it to tell the tale of disaster and dcsith. At Cher ebin there was no great flood of waters, but the loss of life and property by the falling of rocks and the flow of liva must have been considera ble. Duiteczorg suffered very seriously, as did Samaraug, Souraktrtu, and-Sourauya, while the meagre reports from the lesser towns, indicate that their loss was as great in proportion. The 4 Thousand Temples'' at l!rambana were very much damaged and some of them destroyed. All tie:- light hoilM'S in the strait uf Sunda have disappeared and whoro the mountain Kraiuacar formerly stood the sea now flows. The aspect of Suuda Strait is much changed, and naviga tion is dangerous. N-w York, August 31. The Sun's London cabb irmni says: Later report from Data via ure of u more eni on i siting nature, although de tails of thv horrors of the eruption continue to come in. After the subsidence of the distnrbuu cf s in tli- city of Dat ivia on Monday th eruptions seemed to lose tin ir force for a time and the people of Batavia cxperiencoed a feeling of relief in the hope that the wort was passed. The quieter conditions continued n itil about 10 o'clock, when the craters once more began to send up great masses of destructive matter al though without the force of the former action. The eruptions seemed to be moiv violent at night than during the day. J)y 11 o'clock s::ip andayang, which is 1(V54 f-;t in height, was in a" very active state of paroxysmal eruptions. It was accompanied by detonations, I. s i f the land, w::s now but mud, atones, and j who entered their lauuJry last evening on the pb-a of desiring to purchase colla.s. The police heiu-1 the screams of the girls and arrested the PhiiiHiiien. Atchison, Kan., August 31st. The fight be tween Slade and Mitchell was declared off at a very late hour last night. The general opinion among sporting men here is thalE Madden, Mit chell's backer, was determined to get the fight declared off, because he had come to the conclu sion that his man was no match for Slade. The latter is bitterly disappointed. Slade and his manager, Itice, and his trainer, Brightou," are still here, and Je:n Mace is expected to-night. It is reported tli tt Itice says he will back Slade for $5,000 to 510.000 against Mitchell. It is evident, however, that all parties are afraid of the-Kansas authorities, us the laws of this State make prize righting a penitentiary offense Slade received a letter recently from John L. Sullivan, stating that the latter intended to back the Maori heavily and was confident of his success.

Despite the girl's attempt to conceal he r sex, the detective recognized her and said : " Frank, you will have to come with me ; you were told to leave town or else wr ar yonr proper clothes.' Some months ago she was fined $50 for raas ejuerading in the habiliments of the sterner sex, and after a few days stay at the Bridewell she was released, promising to leave the city. The fine was imposed by Justice Kaufman, and as (ranger re fi-rred to it, the girl flew into a high wrath. ''There ain't law enough in the country,'' said .she, " to make me quit wearing these edothes. I told old Judge Kaufman so, too, when he lined inc.

She said that early in life her mother died, and the cruelty of her father drove her from home. To her mind women had the worst of it all through life, and failing to secure any opening where her s-.x was usually employed, she changed her atiire and resolved to engage in work performed by rug-ii. She is twenty-one years old and qnite pretty, and for the past eight j-ears she says she has worn masculine clothing. Early last Spring she was jailed in Detroit for twenty-one days. Sion after she was arrested in ihe same place a second time, but on showing the officers hrr ticket to Chicago they let her go. She then gave the name of Aura Seott, and said her parents lived at Elniira, New Tort. She al.-o admitted that for two years she drove & street-car in Cincinnati, but had mostly followed the lakes.

Three distinct columns of flame were seen to rise from the mountain to a vast height, and its whole surface appeared as if covered with fiery streams, which spread t great dis tances on all sides. Stones fell for miles around and the black fragmentary matter that was car ried into the air caused total d irknoss. A whirl wind accompanied this eruption, by which house roofs, trees and men and horses we're car ried into the air.

He passed masses of float ing pumice stone seven feet eleep. It is esti mated that 10,000 persons lost their lives at Tjiringiu.

Why is so much ex pended for mere gewgaws ? Not one lady in the world at least not oue young lady cares to tell. Men leave their deisks and cmutiug rooms where they have passed a busy, toilsome elay, and " perchance he visits a house and sees a daiutity appointed woman,'' says the News Letter. She looks so placul, bo sweet, so per fect there below the light that she spreads over his tireel soul a feeling of ineffable rest. There is nothing to remind him of the world, detest ableness, and the man sighs to see that soft pic ture at his hearthstone always and forever, The little s.tuev god transfixed what is called the heart ' of the man, and he is going to h ive that woman for his wife. Then come the long months of courtship (so much nicer than matri mony;. He calls iu the morniug, at noon, at night. Never does he see an untidy head. White jackets anil blue bows loom out upon his enraptured eye. Dainty slippered feet peep out from trim skirts, sending him crazy, while u pe rpetual smile sits on the rosy mouth (Chiuese saucers being cheap) only for him. Then come wteldiug bells, aud under tho golden peal the lady bride, looking like some white statue, pure and fair, takes up her place by his side forever (i. e till ilivorce comes ink For a long time the Watteau wrappers and elainty poiguoirs, the lofty ilressed hair, and the lattice work slippers, are there, aildiug a perpetual charm over the breakfast table. As the woman sits there eloing the honors, the man feels at peace with the whole world, and hates to leave that enchanted morning room. But eveuing brings a still more beauteous change. Dressed in falling silk, with the trail of laces aud no end of ribbon, flowers in the coiled braids and at the soft, white throat, the lady of his love- appears eveii Swaeter thau under the blush of the moruiug. And so they go drifting on for a few months, until oua day, my ladj- having been out late, comes home to preside at the table with many a hair-pin stick ing in her head like a porcupine at bay. She eloes not look her best, and the first bloom is swept from the cheek of the peach. The ice being broken, things get mixed up. This con stant familiarity breeds carelessness, and the dainty white wrapper i3 possibly not so clean, not so well effected with. blots of color, a half soileel handkerchief sticking out of the torn pocket iu fact, a general disagreeableness pre sides over the breakfast table, and the evening sees no array of garments donned to please the husband's noticing eye. This -is the way you lose your husbands, ladies, while other women, with more tact, pick them np " on the fly." Yes for most men do not look si much for mind aud heart qualities as a pretty, soft bundle of loveliness to gladden their eyes and make them proud after the day is done Yon know a man's greatest pride is in his wife's personnel. but do not mistake me. The woman who cau hold her hfcsband the finer senses is far more worthy than she who has only her dress effects to go upon ; but, in any case, let me implore you to look after your elresses, for if you were each a Madame de Stael, Countess of Blessing ton, or any other great-brained womau. and you appeared before the man of your heart minus all those pretty nothings that make women so re poseful to him, he would in time grow weary. I expect I shall get no end of abuso from the women, but then the men will uphold me, and let ma have their good wore! in preference every time." "What you sitting there half an hour for,star iug at vacancy?'' said the grocerymau to the bad boy, as he sat on a stool by the stove one of those foggy mornings, when everybody feels like quarreliug, with his fingers clasped around his knee, looking as though he did not know enough to last him to bed. "What are you thinking about any way?" "Say, do you know what I think is the most beautiful thing iu the Bible?" "No, I don't' said the grocerymau, "antl if you want to tell it I will listen just five min utes, and then I am going to shut np the store and go to breakfast. You make me tired." ,rWeIl, I think the finest thing is that story about the prodigal son, where the boy took all the money he could scrape up aud went out west to paint the towus red. Ha spent his money in riotous living, and saw everything that was go ing on, and got full of benzine, and struck all the gangs of toughs, both male and female, and his stomach went back on him, and he had Ma laria, and finally he got to be a cow-'aoy, herd ing hogs, and had to eat husks that the hogs didn't want, antl got pretty low elown. Then he thought it was a pretty good scheme to be getting arouml home, where they had three meals a elay, and spring mattresses, and he started home, beating his way on trains, and he didn't know whether the old man would receive him with open arms or pointed boots, but the old mau came elown to the depot to meet him, and right there before the passengers, auel the conductor and brakemau, he wasn't ashamed of his boy, though he was ragged, and loeiked as though he had been ori the war path, and the old man fell on his neck and wept, and took him home in a hack and had a veal pot pie for dinner. That's what I call sense. A good many now days would have put the police on the tramp and had him ordered out of town. What, you are going to close up the store? Well, I will see you later. 1 want to talk to you about something that is weighing on my mind," and the boy got out just in time to save his coat tail from being caught iu'the door, and when the grocery man came back from break fast he found a sign in front, "This store is closed till further notice.

We remember once of having heard an amiable but rather radical gentleman declare in a public assembly that tobacco was no better thau liquor, and that not one who useil either habitually could ever get to that sweet laud "where the wicked cease from troubling and the weary are at rest." It was also further argued that to bacco was a poison that shortened the elays of man, notably in every instance where it was used for any consitlerable time, for the incontrovert ible reason that Tol'aoco is an Imliuu weed.

The bc nigtod being who thus thrived on a eleadly poison was an old woman, by name Ann Woods, who smoked her last pipe of tobacco and drew her last breath in the UxbriJge, Eunlauil, Union Workhouse. But what makes the case so in expressibly lamentable is that Mrs. Woods took to the bad habit of smoking iu the early part of the present century, when, as a soldier's wife, she followed the regiment in which her husband served. It cannot, ther -f re, he said that her smoking was of short Munition, aud was thus possibly the actual cause of her death. In youth, iu middie age aud iu old age, Ann Woods still continued puffing away at her pipe, of which she was not eleprived by the workhouse authori ties, who, it is stateil, allowed her to receive the same allowance of tobacco as a male inmate. More provoking still, h; r brain had not been muddled by . uicotiue, lor she retained her faculties to the last ; if, indeed, anybody can be said to retain his or her faculties who persists in outraging common seuse by acting iu elirect de nance of the laws of nature, as laid down by moral and medical authorities.

Kerosene as an Insecticide Paris green, Louelon purple aud other arseni cal compounds are deadly poisons, aud even when used ou plants wi;h" the greatest care, are dangerous to both man and beast. Pyrethrum is effective and safe, but costly. The many ex periments with kerosene as an insect-destroyer during the past two years convinces ladiug en tomologists that this well-known and cheap fluid meets a long felt want. The bet method of applying kerosene is in a fine emulsion with milk, made by a process of churning, and after wartl diluteil to uuy elesired strength. The emulsion can be applied through a fine nose of a watering-pot, or on a large scale by a force pump with a spray nozzle. The kerosene thus showered upon the plants is very penetrating, and will destroy the insects in all stages of de velopmant, even to the eggs. Two parts of kerosene to one of sour milk is a proper propor tion. If fresh milk is not at hand condensed milk diluted tj the same strength may be em ployed. This mixture is successfully used for th scale insect in the orange groves of Florida. A mixture of water and three per ceni. kerosene is deadly to the bugs and does no harm to the ' growing corn. The apparatus for the cheapest aud best application of the emulsion is yet to be 1 devised. By using a cheap grade of petroleum the expense is small, aud wuh the necessary ap- puratus for applying the emulsion, a safe and successful war may bo waged against the insect j enemies.
