The British steamer Silvcrtown,
which at tho beginning of the year
left London under contract to lay a
submarine cable between Salinas
Cruz and Payta, by which nn un
broken connection between Galves
ton and Valparaiso and all inter
mediate ports on the Pacific Coast
of Central and South America was
established, is now in San Francisco
harbor. She is the first cable-ship
that has ever visited the port of San
Francisco. She was built in 1873,
remodeled in 1880, and fitted out
with the latest appliances. The
most noticeable feature about the
vessel is her great breadth of beam
compared to her length. The di
mensions arc: Length, 340 feet;
breadth, 50 feet; and depth, 30 ft.
This great breadth takes away fiom
her speed, but ensures the great
steadiness necessary for laying a
cable. Her registered tonnage is
3720 tons, and her gross tonnage is
1035 tons, but she can carry 8000
tons of ficight with safety. Tho
driving engines arc compound of
100 horse power nominal. When in
first class trim she can steam 0
knots an hour, but when her bottom
is foul, as It is now, can mako
but 5 undor the most favorable con
ditions. She will return to London
by the Straits of Magellan, taking a
cargo of wheat. It is safe to assume
she will take 7000 tons of wheal, in
addition to 1200 tons of coal and
000 tons of water ballast. She has
four decks and a hurricane deck

A word of advice to thoso nbotit
to start for China, Japan or those
countries where cholera is said to be
prevalent. In case they should en
counter the demon, lot mo call their
attention to a simple prescription
written by a physician who had great
experience during the epidemic of
'32 and '-18. As death is often in
the pot, so is tho remedy in the
cruet-stand. The medicine is made
up as follows: Mustard, one table
spoonful; salt, one ditto; wator,
half pint. Mix. Dose: one table
spoonful every half hour. I do not
say that better remedies arc not to
be found in the mcdicinc-chcst, but
when stricken down by cholera (and
it always comes suddenly), unless
prompt measures are taken there is
no more hope for the patient tliau if
he had ono of Arabi's iron pills in
his stomach. The doctor is' not
always at had ; my remedy is nearly
always so, and, as the advertise
ments bay, " ask for no other and
see that you get it."
Here is a matter for your military
men to think over. Tho senrcity of
candidates for cavalry commissions
here is causing serious alarm nt
Ilcad-quarlcrs. That steps of somo
kind will be taken for obtaining a
proper How of candidates for com
missions in the cavalry there can be
no doubt. There arc plenty of can
didates for infantry commissions,
but not for the cavalry. Why?
Because the expenses in a cavalry
regiment arc so great as to shut out
that branch of tho service to all but
men with a large private income.
Of the candidates for infantry coin
missions, there are many who would
select serving in the cavalry, if .tho
expenses were not so extravagant.
Competitive examinations and exam
inations for promotion may be re
moved altogether, yet it is doubtful
whether any perceptible increase of
candidates for cavalry commissions
would result. Of late years young
men of property havo taken to trade,
while parents see that the social
position conferred in these days by
military rank is no equivalent for
the heavy outlay of a cavalry com
mission. The deficiency of candi
dates for the cavalry arises in a
great measure from a social cause.
There is little doubt that if expenses
in the field aitillcry were increased
there would be just as many vacan
cies in that branch of the mounted
service. ' , ' .
Here is a good idea for your city,
that entertains so many strangers.
Vcvcy, a charming town on the
Lake of Geneva in Switzerland, has
hitherto being neglected by tourists.
A strong effort is being made to at
tract them and the leading feature
is the formation of a society, com
prising all the chief inhabitants, for
the embellishment of tho town and
its environs. They impress upon
the tradesmen, the necessity for mo
deration in prices aud civility to
strangers. I hope they will succeed
in their wcll-concclvcd efforts.
A good story comes from Geneva,
concerning a lady and gentleman
who recently arrived there nnd
found all the hotels so full that they
ultimately were accommodated with
a bathroom turned into n bed-chamber.

"Animal intelligence" is tho title
