The reports of the condition and prospects of business are very cheerful reading much more cheerful than the everlasting political diatribes with which party organs are at present filled. The trunk lines centering at New York report their western-bound busi ness as from 25 to 40 per cent, in excess of last year at this time ; while on east-bound they say the increase is at least 10 per cent. The coast steamers, through to New Orleans aad Galveston, have as much outward freight as they can handle, and the increase over the business of last year at this time is estimated at fully 10 per cent. A still greater increase in the trade this way will appear when cotton, rice, sugar and tobacco begin to move. The eastern lines have their hands fulL" Dry goods sales for July and August are reported at from 20 to 30 per cent, above last year for the same months. . The New York Bulletin looks over the whole ground and says : "Gro ceries, hides and leather, iron and hardware are all confidently held ; the future of cotton and wool, perhaps, is not so well denned. On the whole, however, tho situation is eminent' ly encouraging, and none the less so because of the almost total absence of the spirit of reckless adventure and speculation which characterized the memorable sudden business revival of last year." In New York city, it is stated, there is at present a far greater num ber of buyers from the South and West than there has been at any corresponding period since the close of the war, and merchants are overrun with business. Not the least pleasing feature, of the talk about business and its prospects is what the southerners now in New York in great force to buy goods say about affairs in their sec tion of the country. More money will be realized ffom cotton this year than ever be fore. The crop is large and good and the prices are satisfactory. In Louisiana, the sugar crop, which is nearly mature, promises to be good, and prices are from a cent to a cent and a half higher than last year. The rice crop is large, prices axe good and prom' ise to remain so. In Texas, wheat, which was a failure last year, yields more than an average crop this year, and the growth of cotton (1,300,000 bales) is a large one. It is stated that there has been less money lost in the southern States during the last five years than in any other part of the country, and that the southern buyers in New York are ready to pay cash for what they buy, not withstanding money is scarcer at the South at this time of the year than at any other. The home manufacture of cotton and other goods at the South has already reached large proportions, and the prospect is good for an indefinite increase. In Alabama, it is esti mated, there are 60,000 spindles and 900 looms in operation, employing 2,500 opera tives and a capital of over a million of dol lars. Georgia has 200,000 spindles, between ,0()0 and 6,000 looms, employs 10,000 hands and nearly $5,000,000 capital. North Caro lina has over 100,000 spindles and 1,500 looms, and Mississippi has 30,000 spindles and 800 . looms. The total capital invest ed is somewhere near $10,000,000 and the numbers of employes about 20,000. They are running principally on Southern capital, with a Northern holder here and there inter ested enough to secure an account. The motive power is principally water and the labor wnite. ine macmnery in use is mostly new and from New England- South' ern men are in the North constantly watch ing for new inventions in machinery and tak ing advantage of their observations. Mills in the South are going up rapidly, and so great is the demand from all quarters that an order for a complete outfit for a mill could not be executed within a year. Taking into consideration all these facts, the immense crops in the West, the general activity all over the country, and the millions of gold coming across the ocean, it appears that there is abundant reason for congratula tion on account of the present condition of business and for hope for its future. In con clusion, we leave it to our readers whether a change that would give the Democratic party chance to test its doctrine of "a tariff for revenue only" and to tinKer tne finances would improve the outlook. EDITORIAL NOTES. Yesterday was not a very good day for the race, and there was more anxiety than usual ta have the last heat over. General Grant's refusal to serve the pro. moters of a mining scheme as president of their company is additional evidence that he is a wise man. On Wednesday evening of this week Hon. Joseph R. Hawley and Hon. William C. Case will address the Republicans of East Haven on the issues of the campaign, both State and national. New Haveners who wish to hear an able and forcible presentation of those issues will find profit in attending the meeting, which is to be held in the town hall. There has been a vigorous effort to show that no confederate flag was displayed during the recent . Democratic .demonstration in Washington. It is now said that the flag which was reported to be a rebel banner was the national flag of Liberia, displayed from the stand. But the reliable Washington cor respondent of the Boston Advertiser says that the Confederate flag which wm display ed hung from a private house near for some hours before the meeting began.

A survivor of the wreck of the "Vera Cruz A. S. Owen, a civil engineer has given s very graphic and coherent account of the disaster. From this account it seems that the ill-fated vessel might not have been prop erly loaded, that she was not built as strong ly as she should have been in her upper part, and that a proper drag was not among her provisions for safety.. The behavior of the doomed passengers was heroic, even the chil dren being quiet and reasonable. Brave General Torbert who was washed ashore deadp went about among the passengers be fore the vessel went to pieces trying to keep their Lope alive and helping them to put on their life preservers.

Jupiter comes at that epoch 46,000,000 miles nearer the great cen tral orb. . He is then, however, more, than 450,000,000 miles from the sun, fortunately far enough away to counteract and mollify the increased force of attraction between two such mighty masses: Those who have been expecting the end of the world at this time can feel more cheerful, for the days . yet re maining before the 25th count as nothing in a revolution requiring twelve of our years.

Jupiter turns on its axis in about ten hours, so that an observer on his equator would be carried round at the rate of nearly 500 miles a minute instead of the seventeen miles that mark the comparatively moderate progress made by an inhabitant at the earth's equator.

The chairman of a political committee in Mississippi has in a public statement made the very sensible assertion that "secession was revolution and folly." True and obvious as this is, it could hardly be expected to find general acceptance in Mississippi. And it does not. The Meridian Mercury, for in stance, says : "The chairman of our com mittee has committed the canvass to the pre position that 'secession was revolution and folly.' To admit that is to half condone all the wrongs the Repulican party has inflicted upon the people of the South, and still fur ther contemplate, a remembrance of which makes the South solid and binds us together to oppose it. To admit it is to admit that Jefferson Davis deserved to have been hanged upon that 'sour apple tree,' and only was saved by the magnanimity and forgivingness of the conquerors. To admit it is to confess that every willing Confederate neck might rightfully have been claimed by the halter. To admit it is to admit that Andy Johnson uttered a patriotic sentiment when he said, 'traitors must be punished and treason made odious.' It is to admit that the punishment that has been inflicted upon us reconstruc tion, carpet-baggery, negro supremacy, plun der, spoliation and all has been deserved, and that we got off well in saving our necks. " Whether the Mercury and those who think with it ever change their opinion or not the fact will remain that secession was revolu tion and folly, and that those who led in it did get off well in saving their necks. Olive Logan, who claims to have personal knowledge, thus writes of Adelaide Neilson's proposed career, which was cut short by death: Socially she preferred England, natu rally enough.. Outside of New York there is no society in America of that peculiar kind generally classed under the broad name of Upper Bohemian a society as elegant, re fined, lavish in its material surroundings as that of the highest nobility, far more intel lectual and spiritual than that, gay, bright, entertaining and yet thoroughly unconven tional asking no questions, telling no lies- Persons penetrating it are requested, so to speak, to like it or lump it. I think almost everybody in the world likes it, but a great many are forced to lump it on account of the conventionalism in force in their own local district. Yet Bohemian or not Bohemian. Adelaide Neilson was about to fix the final gem in the circle of brilliants her beauty and her genius had won her. The necessity for keeping her secret no longer exists and I now publish it. She herself told me lost summer that she was engaged to be married to Rear Admiral Glynn, the naval officer who took the Prince of Wales out to India, and whose standing at court is of t he very highest. As his wife her life would have been a delightful one. Certain circumstances would have barred her presentation to the Queen, but there are many ladies of fashion and standing who do not enjoy this honor, and yet who go freely into brilliant and aristocratic society and hold their own there. This would have been Neilson's position. She would have had gentleman of birth and distinction and one who adored her for a husband, and her house would have been a rendezvous for the bright est, gayest and most entertaining in all classes of London's multiplex life.

CORRESPONDENCE. A Trip Throng! tlie PemlgewalMt For- ; ' est. i RiDGEFnxD, Ct, Sept 1 To the Editor of tbe Jodbhai. and Cocanca : To the enterprising White Mountainers I heartily recommend a trip through the. Pern' igewasset forest. . I. am aware that the mountain enthusiast (a weak-minded indivi dual who goes up Mount Washington by rail, and sneers at anything under five thousand feet,) will not look with favor upon an un dertaking so "stale, flat and unprofitable," but to the sportsman and artist, and Bo hemian of every degree, I plead the charms of Pemigewasset. Jt COljtjanjndeAjul scenery that can properly be styled soul- stirring. The traveler who is ambitious of only such sensations must seek them on the crests of the presidential range, or in the gloomy depths of the great ravines. The journey is rich, however, in picturesque and charming effects ; and noble mountain views are by no means wanting. One great advantage of the route through the wilderness is that both start and termi nus are convenient. Having visited the Fronconia Notch the tourist finds this a di rect and interesting way of reaching the White Mountain range. The entrance is at Pollard's, about twenty-one miles north of Plymouth. This will be found a plain, un pretending house, with nothing of the hotel about its appearance or fittings. Judging, however, from a sample meal, I am inclined to think that one could spend a few days there very comfortably. The house commands a fine prospect toward the west, where Moosilanke, tipped with its scarcely visible hotel, bounds the horizon. The party to which the writer was attached appointed Plymouth as a rendezvous, and having spent an afternoon in climbing Mt. Prospect, proceeded next morning to Pol lard's. Before going further, let me say a word about Prospect. I know that the before-mentioned enthusiast who has traveled in Switzerland and been up the Rigi Kulm, you know, and all that sort ofjthmg will smile at the mere mention of a little hill scarcely two thousand feet high. On the other hand, the really appre ciative and artistic mountaineer knows very well that the best panoramas are not ob tained from the highest mountains. That from Prospect is one of the most charming I have ever met with, and I advise every tour ist possessed of sufficient funds and patience to endure a short stay at the Pemigewasset House for the sake of it. We reached the summit about 4 p. m. The day was some what hazy, just enough to soften, without marring the view. To the south lay the country we had just traveled, the lake dis trict of New Hampshire. The glittering sur faces of the lakes were contrasted with a rich landscape of forest and meadow, while groups of farm houses, with here and there a church, gave evidence of man's occupation. To the north, how different. Not a house to be seen. "Not a shadow of man's ravage." The forest-covered mountains extend on every side, growing continually higher until they culminate in the scarred peak of Lafayette and the shadowy summit of Washington. But to return to the Pemigewasset. We , started from Pollard's at about half-past three, with an average of twenty pounds on our backs and attended by the younger Mr. Pollaid as our guide. It gives me great ; pleasure to add that we found him, througn all the vicissitudes of our tramp, and they were by no means few, exceedingly obliging and agreeable. He is probably as well ac quainted as any man living with the ways and byways of this region. Yet, so difficult and , extensive is this forest that even his knowl edge is, in a great measure, confined to the course of the east branch and its principal tributaries. Our first stage was a very short one. We camped on the banks of the river not more than a nine from tne nouse. uur guide, having pitched the tents and cut a quantity or firewood, returned to spend one more night in the bosom of his family. Our first night in camp was a decided suc cess. The night was warm and dry, and everything, even to our meal of salt beef and pilot bread, bore the charm of novelty. The fire, that indispensable element of camp comforts, blazed gloriously, throwing shower of sparks into the overhanging foli age, and lighting up the forest with a weird fantastic glare. A few yards away the river wag rushing and plunging along, with its lit tle cascades and pools gleaming in the light of the crescent moon iust sinking over dis tant Moosilanke. Altogether it was a picture worthy of Uerard JJow a scene to be re membered rather than described. I remem ber well the delightful sense of warmth and comfort with which I fell asleep. How fra grant, I exclaimed mentally, this couch of balsam and hemlock ! , How fresh and sweet the mountain air ! I believe I finally dropped off with my head full of mad pro jects for a woods life in the future. Alas, how transient is human happiness ! Scarce two hours later I was crouching, a miserable being, over a heap of smouldering ashes, numb with cold and aching m every loint. The bed of evergreen boughs had proved a delusion and a snare, and that famous moun tain air had been whistling about my ears in a most uncomfortable way. I looked out upon the river. The pole faced moon, like other pale faces, had gone west, and the Min nehaha "laughing water" had given place to a monotonous "swish" that made my blood run cold- The rest of the night was spent in vain attempts to keep up the fire and sleep. In the woods one day is like another, and it is not my purpose to give any detail of our pilgrimage, i our days were required to reach the White Mountain Notch, but the greater part of one was taken for a vain at tempt to reacn tne summit, ui juuuuv gam, by way of Ueaar llroolc, an attempt against which I warn the future explorer. A good pedestrian might doubtless go through in two days, and three would under ordinary circumstances be ample time. For the first eight or nine miles a trail is followed ; at first broad and plain, but growing at every step more difficult and intricate, until finally it is lost in the underbrush not far from Cedar Brook. The traveler then takes to the bed of the stream, and for about eight miles more clambers slowly from rock to rock. It ib here that tbe xnapsacKs tire. A step or leap of from four to six feet, easy for the unencumbered, becomes a genuine mmiAtai pas, and the slippery log a pom asinorum. Under sucn circumstances a partial ducking is inevitable, sooner or later, and perhaps the best way is to take a voluntary lmiuenuuu v tuo very in ot. -it. in discouraging to be careful all day and slip just as you reach camp. However, as com pensation lor au tnese inconveniences, nne mountain views are obtained after leaving the woods. Potash, Flume and Coolidge town in the ever receding distance, while Hancock and Canigain on the right, and Bond and Guyot on the left, nearly complete tne en vironment. The most interesting part of the journey commenced after leaving the Forks. For about two miles our course was northerly ; then, turning toward the east, we began one long climb to .Etnan's t-ontt. Deautuui cas cades now marked almost every step. The banks of the stream drew nearer together. and the tall, snow-like -evergreens, sloping athwart its course, touched overhead. fringing glorious views - of Bond ' and Guvot ; the all but un visited peaks of the wilderness. - Varying at every turn in the brook and increasing at every step, the glory culminated at the Thoreau Falls, a cascade worthy of being classed with the Arethusa and Glen Ellis, and surpassing both in the fine prospect from its edges. The hardships and mishaps of our four days in the wilderness are already forgotten ; but in the minds of all the party, I believe, the name "Pemigewasset" will always be a talisman the "Open Sesame" of pleasant recollections. W. W. W. The Mango Trick. Bow it Is Ione Sot m "Wonderful Per. ftrmsBM. From Harperfc "Weekly .J With certain Indian jugglers the "mango" trick is their most effective feat. A mango seed is produced, and a flower pot filled with mould, and after a lot of ceremony (in plain TTrtrrHoh fntnlths seed is tmt under the mould. and several covers of baskets and cloths are placed over the pot Then there is more ceremony and fingering about the covered basket, and the pot is shown with the mango letves just sprouting up. Then it is covered over again, and more hocussing goes on, and the plant is seen to have grown. , The oover : hAjimiainn nnl nnATiino; sToes on. the plant meanwhile having further, grows and become strong enough to bear fruit, the bios som to appear, the fruit to form and finally the fruit to ripen, which is then plucked off and given to be eaten. Now we, for our part, cannot understand how any one can not see through the per formance. Nay, even when to a fellow spec tator, who once viewed this performance, we explained the detaileof the trick after it was over, he would not believe, but recokned the affair wonderful, and even partaking of the supernatural. We can only attribute it to his having been so mystified as to have been ac tually mesmerized, though partaking of con sciousness. The real truth about this feat was that the green and ripe fruits, and every branch and shoot that was exhibited, were actually there, just as much as the seed and the flower-pot all in the wraps and folds and baskets which formed the covering. We wore carefully watching the man's proceedings, and at that time had acquired some knowledge of joggling tricks. As we were not allowed to touch the instruments of the exhibition after the particular performance began, the baskets, wraps, etc., could not be disturbed; but with our own eyes we saw the performer draw out the branches, etc., from the folds of the cloths and noticed him sticking them into the pot beneath the coversng, working away with his hands, and, as we thought, very clumsily. The question may be asked by a doubter of our account of the process, how about a green and ripe fruit, as well as blossoms, being pro duced simultaneously, mj at-a. period when there are no such things; that is, when they are out of season? This, indeed, has been brought forward as a complete Answer by those who believe in these jugglers. To answer this is not so difficult , however, as it appears. India is a vast continent and from its southernmost limit on the Indian ocean, where there is little difference between sum mer and winter, to its northern boundary on the snowy Himalayas, there is existing every variety of climate at any given time of the year. The mango fiorishes equally in Ceylon and in the sub-Himalayan countries. We have ourselves, in passing through the plains into the upper Himalayas, in the course Of succesive weeks, seen the mango season just over the plains; a little higher up mangoes . were just in season; the fruits forming higher up still; the blossoms in fuli flash a couple of thousand feet higher; while higher still the blossoms had not yet made an appearence. With this fact are to be taken two others; the first, the Indian jugglers all belong to one masonic brotherhood, and are in intimate communication with one another, all ever on the "move; and the second, that even they will decline at times to perform this particular feat; that is, when they are not provided with the blossoms, green and ripe fruits, The seeds, shoots etc., are always everywhere procurable. If there still be any doubter, let us only add that after the performance detailed above we took the man aside (unwilling naturally to expose the man, and destroy the credit by means of which he had made his living) and' asked him if it was not true that the branches and f rnits were all there in the wraps. The glance of pur eye told him that we knew every detail in the process, and had watched everything that he did, and so he confessed that what we said was the truth, and apologized by saying that he must make a living. A Harvest of Beetles. The provincial official journals of Russia give some curious statistics of the harvest of beetles in the southern provinces. In many parts of Eharkoff the only harvest reaped this year by the peajants has been that of the Anigoplia austnaca, for collecting which the local assemblies have granted some small sub sidies. The results of this harvest are week ly published in the Kharkoff government VeaomosU,, and the number received to-day contains a long list in continuation of previ ous ones. From this we learn that two tons of beetles have been reapedjin the commune of Veselondskij, five tons at Yasilievsky, seven tons at the German colonies at Eigen feld, ten tons at Belozersk, and fifteen tons at Frishilsk. Such figures as these but faint ly bring home to the mind the ravages wrought by the insect pests of Russia, and their prostrating effects on the prosperity of the country. The visitation, indeed, is as extraordinary as it is beyond human skill to cope with. Fifteen years have elapsed since the waters of the Black Sea first washed on the Russian shores the eggs of the Anisoplia austriaca, and yet, so far from the phenome non being exceptional in its character, it has been constantly repeated since, and the Od essa Vestnik received this morning contains another announcement that fresh "swarms are ripening in the sun on the sands near Sebastopol. " Where they come from is a mystery. The lorvee is first seen floating on the" waves of the Black Sea, the beetles break into life as soon as the eggs get stranded on the shore, and then swarm after swarm of AnivopMa avstriaca pass over the Crimean valleys into the interior ; every year increas ing the area of their ravages, and every year diminishing by millions the sorry earnings of Russian peasants. How to deal with the evil is one of the great problems of to-day in Rus sia. Machines of all descriptions have been tried, but have proved more or less worthless, as indeed must all mechanical appliances against a pest so vast that a single field in Kharkoff was calculated in the spring to con tain 350,000,000 insects. A short while ago it was said that a fly had been discovered with a propensity for killing 'corn beetles; and it may be safely assumed that it will only be by means of some such antagonistic insect or by the agency of birds at present absent from the Russian steppes that the evil will be ultimately suppressed. Tbe Drom-Major. From the Chicago Times. To properly photograph a drum-major would require a complex use of vivid coloring. The plain black with which the face of type is bedaubed can convey no conception of his magnificence. A description of the glorious creature should be printed in red ink on a bright yellow background, to be at all effica cious or truthful to nature. Ignorant and misinformed people have been led to suppose that the recent demonstration was to enable the Knights Templar to show what they could do in the way of a display. This is a great mistase. It was gotten up in order that the drum-major might have an opportunity to prove his greatness as an institution. Twenty-five or thirty thousand uniformed Knights were sandwiched between the hundred or so drum-majors, to be sure, but it was merely to show them oil to greater ad vantage by contrast. When caparisoned for dress parade, the drum-major is a wonderful and awful creation. One look at him is enough to frighten timid children into fits, and two looks would drive them into early graves. His uniform is a thing of beauty and a joy forever. Like Joseph's patch-work coat, it is composed of many colors, and none are sober colors, either. When the firemen were asked what color the "machine" should be painted, they instructed the artist of the brush to paint it any color he pleased, so he got it red. And thus it is with the drum-major; his instructions to his tailors are to rig him up any kind of a uniform so it is of bright gold, scarlet, pur ple,, blue, red and white. He has choice, to be sure, and if left to his own selection, his garb is usually cardinal pantaloons, and a crimson jacket trimmed with red and yellow. There is profuseness of gold braid about his jacket that dazzles the eye, and his epaulets are marvels of tne creative art, -they maKe him look at least three ax-handles across the back. A parti-colored belt and a bewildering sash go far to make the outfit complete; and when he is buttoned up and belted he begins to look as gay as a peacock with his tail paint ed sky blue. But he is not complete until he dons his enormous bear-skin cap, surmounted by a three-story plume, and seizes his ponder ous baton- Then, if he is fortunate enough to have a big mustache, or, better yet, a full black beard, he is ready to go forth and conquer. With that astonishing head-gear, fastened on by a leather chin-strap, and his coat buttoned up tight, he is a perfect specimen of his kind, as big as a skinned horse, and twice as ug'y. He looks for all the world like the picture of huge ogres in juvenilepublications, who are shown in the act of swallowing wicked chil dren, the smallheels only being visible as the monster is gulping them down without chewing. The more ferocity he can get into his make-up the better drum-major is he con- -sidered, and one of piratioal appearanoe is a prize indeed. Me tooK charge ot tne procession yesteraay. and his gyrations during the morning were the .. wonder and admiration of full-grown beholders. He knew the eyes of the world were upon him, and his contortions bordered on the painful. He whirled about with an abandon and reoklessness that was thejacme of studied carelessness, and the vigor with which he wielded his dreadful cudgel was warning to incautious spectators to run' for oover. lie imperiled tne lives of everybody who had the temerity to venture beyond the curbs on either side of the streets, and he was at once the terror and the idol of the multitude. His club and his size 'enforced the respect of the crowd, - and his gorgeousnesa won their love. No man has yet been found who can tell what a drum-major is for, or what purpose he serves in the economy of nature. Lots of people are willing to rob Peter to pay Paul, only they jret tired when their job uhalf done. They neglect to pay Paul.
