I it because disappointed gold huuters do not And the precious metals as abun dant as they supposed T The man who writes from the far east to know if the wind don't blow awfully bard, is referred to the buricane reports from New Brunswick and other joints not west of the Mississippi. The fall politician begins to agitate the water, especially the "reformer" who wants the office "to seek the man." He is around "fixin things" so the ofllec will know which man to seek. The bunkers, too, recognize the fact that the "solid west" is coming to the front. At the Saratoga convention they hail the grace to remark, "Western men should also be considered, for from the west comes power." It seems that the magnificent cen tennial building is to be a thing of the past in two years hence. The Fairmount park authorities are dis gusted with the use of the building by opera troupes and Sunday concerts. The Montreal banks are endeavoring to weather the storm of a hard run upon them. Some are succumbing to the pressure, and others have converted an immense amount of securities into bills and cxjHX't to ride into harbor all right. According to testimony before the Cin cinnati investigating committee it takes from f.',(K)0 to f 3,000 for an Ohio con gressman to conduct the campaign. What become of the "poor, but worthy?" It looks as though he might le counted out. Mr. O. Waggoner, a prominent Demo crat of Toledo, Ohio, has joined a Itc publican club, and announces bis inten tion to act with the Republican parly.

The lstok in the Pealxxly library, pub lished Mi 00, is a venerable volume, but there are more than fifty volumes in the Kansas Slate library which are older, one of them tieing printed in 104!), and is two hundred and thirty years old, being forty-one years older than the Pealxdy book. So Spotted Tail thinks he has "his Wily full."

The north pole is now more than ever an object of much solicitation. She must Boon pine for the secrecy she has long maintained as to her immediate dwelling place. Holland, Austria, Den mark, Sweden and the United States, all have vessels searching for the great un known. Furthermore, England is just about to start a fleet of three vessels to seek the northwest passage and the pole of all poles. It now looks as though tho Mormon question would receive the attention it has long demanded. The war is to be ojiencd in two directions. The district attorney at Utah is to enforce the act of congress prohibiting bigamy, which has Itoen decided entirely constitutional, and Secretary Evarts is about to insist on the enforcemct of the treaties with foreign countries, which do not allow that class of immigration which favors the growth of Mormon ism. Recent dispatches from New York show that in spite of jealousy, and in the face of strong opposition, our foreign cattle trado shows a marked increase. Five European steamers recently cleared from New York with 851 head of live cattle, besides 427 tons of dressed lieef and 453 carcasses of sheep in refrig erating compartments. Since the 15th of July one firm has shipped 5,500 head of cattle. The argument of hunger outweighs the apprehension of pleuro pneumonia, and as American beef is bet ter and cheaper than foreign, the nations must have it. Our foreign tnule in live cattle and fresh meat is an assured fact. The agreement between the German government and the Vatican, by which the Catholic bishops and priests are per mitted to return to their sees and parishes. will be accepted with gratification by all Christendom. The condition or return is simply that they obey the constitution and common law of the realm. It is highly probable that Bismark overreach ed himself in this matter. Aside from the matter of religious intolerance in volved the chancellor doubtless discov ert! tli at he needed the aid of the Catholic clergy to repress Socialism, which has assumed such threatening forms in his empire. Catholicism is the unrelenting opxnent of Socialism. A special telegram shows how democ racy is maintained at the south. Mr. Henry M.Dickson, a reputable citizen of Yazoo county, Miss., was imprudent enough to announce himself a republi can candidate for sheriff.

The Vicksburg Herald, the Democratic organ, thereupon announced: "The Democratic flag now waves over this glorious old county uncontaminated and unchallenged, and longinay it wave!" VOL.. 22. SILENCED. While fleti. Joe (Jeiirer was addressing a public meeting at Columbus, Ohio, a few nights ago, an old Bourlxin Dem ocrat, who had Ix-cn enjoying himself hurrahing for Jeff Davis, sung out : "Where was Foster during the war?" To this Joe, with promptness in repartee full of sarcasm, for which he is noted, replied by asking w here the Ohio Sen ators were during that time, and showing up their treasonable record during those dark days, while Foster supported the war throughout, aided in raising money for the widows and orphans of soldiers, and then put the clincher on by saying that "there were many otli- r good men who did not join in the army, and it was impossible for ail logo; thai some had to stay at home to keep Tuurmau, Pendle ton, Converse and Yallandigham from declaring Ohio a secession Stale." A MISTAKE. Several papers have printed the fol lowing, if not inexact language, in sub stance. It is an error: . The new postal law. trovidiiir that all letter insufficiently sUimietl shall lit; forwarded to their destination, and the amount due le collected of the persons to whom the letters are addressed, went into efl'ect on Monday last. The above would be all right if the proviso had been stated that one full rate (three cents) must be attended to insure the passage of a teller to its destination A letter weighingover a half ounce with a three cent stamp on it goes through marked "three cents due," and the de livering postmaster puts a "postage due" stamp on it, and collects three cents; but with a one or two cent stamp on, it should go to the dead letter office and have some more ml tape wound round it before it is delivered. TYNER ON KANSAS. A special telegram from Washington to the Inter-Ocean gives the following about General Tyner's late visit to Kan sas : During his recent western trip. Gener al Tyner, first assistant postmaster iren- ernl, passed through Kansas, lie re ports the title ol immigration into that state as never before equaled in the his tory of an American state. He thinks Kansas will become one otthe great states of the Union, like Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, it is more tlnui twice as larire as Ohio, and if as densely Kpulated, could support 7,000,000 of people. As to the negro exodus into Kansas, lie says it is but a drop in the bucket, and that an equal number of white men going there would have attracted no attention what ever. I ie thinks, however, that the west ward movement of the blacks has but commenced, and that Kansas will event ually have 500,000 of them, and that they will have plenty to do and make a good living. I le rewrtH numerous crops all over the West, and laborers will be in demand, white and bbtck. A COMPARISON OF WAGES. The following is taken from the tele graphic reMrt from Washington, and shows with what utterly poor grace the disaftected socialist and riotous com munist are circulating their wild fire notions, and making their unwarranted attacks on our American system and in stitutions. This is also nourishing food for the rampant demagogue, who is howling about hard times in the United States and tho Grecubacker who lays it to the financial policy of the Republican party, and the Democrat who holds the Republican party responsible for all the ills with which the body politic and the people commercially are affected : Reports from the United States con suls in Europe show that wages in the United Mates are double those ot Bel gium, Denmark, France and England; three times those of German', Italy and Spain, and four times those of Nether lands; that the price of the necessaries of life are lower in the United Stases tlan in Europe; that more misery results from strikes, drinkinjr, socialism and communism in England and Germany than from all other causes combined. Hard times, including the state debt. adds to the above. A synopsis of the re ports has lieen prepared for publication. The following remarks of the reduced reports reminds us of our naturalized workiugmen who are fierce in denounc ing the condition of affairs in the United States, of the hopeless condition of that labor Irom which they escaietl by im migration to this country ; and who, if tney would open their eyes anew to the superior condition of the workingmen of this country, it would show our na tive workiuirmvn the ditlerence between the lalior disfranchised, impoverished ami hopele.s in Europe, and labor free, independent and honorable, and an equal share i.i the political power in America. STRAWBERRIES. The Hot Varieties rniti Mode of Culture, BY UOBKRT MILI.IKKX. This subject like many others pertain ing to fruit-growing is old, and has been written on and talked about, time after time, but like that "old, old story," of which the minister tells us on Sunday it is ever new. Much progress has been made in the improvement of the varieties during the last few years, and many new ones have been introduced, ossessing merits of size, flavor, productiveness, or hardihood, so that one not actually engaged in growing and handling the fruit, must be wide awake to keep posted on the many candidates for popular favor. I submit the following lists as possess ing the principal merits of the liest varieties in cultivation: First, well known standard varieties for general culture are Wilson's Albany, Charles Downing, Kentucky, Austin, Capt-Jack and Green Prolific, named in the order f their preference. I will not detain you to dweuss the special merits of each variety, but merely re mark in passing, the old well known Wilson possesses more of the qualities that go to make a strawberry valuable than any other, as hardiness, ability to withstand the vicissituMes of climate and seasons, general productiveness, ability to fight its way through weeds, hard soil and other obstacles under the custo mary neglect given to strawberry fields. On the other hand the yield under favor able conditions is not one third that of some of the more recent introductions. the flavor is simply passable, and it does not endure the hot suns to compare with the Austin. For family use where the number of quarts is of less importance than the value of the fruit for table use, or its ability to withstand rough handling on long journeys, than the size and flavor, the following will be found desirable Downers Prolific, Triumph of Cumber land, Boyden's No. 80, to which might be added a number of varieties, the merits of which have not yet been fully developed. The following varieties have not been long enough before the public to have become fully established, yet all promise to lie of great value under proper con ditions of climate, soil and culture, Most promising are the Crescent, Seed ling, Forest Rosa, hharpless. Monarch of the West, Springdale, C'h:ii:i;iipa. So which may be added Great Amerie. Duraud's Beauty, Glendale, President Lincoln and several others. As to modes of culture, growers differ. There are, however, two general modes in use, one known as the hill system and the other as the broadcast, or matted row system. In the former the plants are set in rows about 2 or 3 feet apart and the plants 12 to IS inches asunder, all the intervening space being kept clean and free from weeds, and all run ners removed as fast as they begin to push out, so that all the strength of the plant is expended in forming a large stool or plant. At the approach of winter the wh"e surface is covered with mulch which protects the plants from the changes of winter and spring, and keeps the fruit clean from sand and dirt. This mulch may be allowed to remain on all sum mer to maintain an even temperature and counteract the effects of drouth or it may be removed and the soil stirred as in other hoed crops, the runners all the time being carefully cut off during the'season. The latterdiffers from this in allowing the runners to grow and take root around the parent forming a mat of plants in good seasons completely occupying the whole of the space between the rows. The treatment of the plantation will be the same in both cases until after the picking of the fruit with the exception of the removal of the vines in one case and the encour agement of their growth in the other, wherein they should be carefully laid in and induced to take root. After the fruit is ripened and taken off, go over the bed with a very sharp scythe and cut off all the foliage above the mulch and rake off all the coarser part of the mulch, leaves, vines, etc, and stake it up for future use and dig up, or plow up your plantation if of a size sufficient to warrant the use of horse power, all of the lied except a strip from 6 to 12 inches wide of the new or young plants, in the middle of the rows as laid out at time of setting, the width of the strips be ing in proportion to the thickness with which the plants have matted over the surface, this strip being for the purpose of seeding the ground with young plants, w hich before fall ought to cover the en tire surface. The care during the season will consist in keeping the ground clear of weeds with hoe or cultivator, pulling out by hand such weeds as stand in the narrow row of plants left to make a lied for next year. At the approach of winter, after the ground has become frozen, cover with a :ouple of inches of straw, (coarse stable litter by some persons called manure,) or prairie hay, and in the spring carefully loosen the covering over the crown of the plants so that the new growth may come up through, and little more will be necessary than to pull out any strawy weed that may have the temerity to try to grow in your lied until the time to gather the crop of berries. The hill system is adapted to some va rieties, in which the stool or old plant endures from year to year, and has the advantage of producing a few very large specimen berries; also in allowing the surface to be mulched in the dry weath er of the fall months, when unmulched ground suffers for want of moisture. On the other hand, the bed or matted-row system, while it may not produce so good exhibition berries, gives a much greater number of berries from a given area of ground, on account of having the whole of the surface covered with plants, hence yielding a greater profit for the ground and labor expended. In one case a sin gle plant has allotted tfi it about three square feet of surface, in the other meth od there will be 15 to 20 fruit producing plants in the same area. The advantage in labor is decidedly in favor of the broadcast system, especially in large beds where horse power can be made use of, since the amount of hand weeding which becomes necessary is much less than is required to keep the runners removed in the other method, besides the liability of loss from grubs or other causes, makes much larger holes in the beds when the plants are wide than when they arc closer. One of the main essentials to success, however, consists, not so much on the selection of varieties, the character of the soil, or the method of culture adopted, as upon the thoroughness with which the work is done. The care of a straw- berry bed may be compared to the care of a young child, it must hate constant. regular care, and just at the right time, or it suffers. A fruit tree or a shade tree, when properly set, may be left for days, or even at times for weeks, without attention, but this kind of treatment will, in the case of a strawberry bed, result in failure. It requires daily, almost hourly watching, when the task is comparative ly a light one, out once neglect it and let the weeds get a little the start of vou. or, if -you have hill culture, the runners begin to spread, you may as well give it up -strawberry culture with you is a failure, and this is not a cood strawberry country. But never for one moment neglect your beds. Keen the soil well enriched, loose and mellow, the weeds all out, carefully remove or lay in your runners, ana you win De surprised at the nne Iruit you will be enabled to raise. HOW TO FAIL IN BUSINESS. Out on Michigan avenue a man near u years ot age started a small confec tionerv store some montlia sine a anH the other day sent word to his three cred itors up-town that he had failed and de sired to compromise. The trio went down to the store, which thev found in full blast, and the four sat down for a talk. "You see. shentlemens. I do no peesiness, und my family eats up all der pronis," explained Uie tradesman, by way of excuse. "You owe me $12," replied one of the creditors, "and each of these others $ 15 ape ice. That makes $42." "Shust forty-two." sighed the old man "Now, then, how much money have vou on hand T" "Shust sixty tollars, und no more.-- -ery wen, as you nave had bad luck, we will settle with you forone hundred and twenty cents on the dol lar, and you can go on as before." "Yaw, i win uo aoi, snenuemens und I am much obuced for such kind treatment. He got out his money, the twenty per centum was added to the claims and paid, and before the creditors retired he insisted on treating them to ice cream. They had been gone aa hour before the old man rushed out and hailed a police man and said : "If I fails in business und bays 120 cents on der tollar. Tat does it mean r "It means that you dont know how to faiL" was the reply. "Ish dot possible V . whispered the old man. "I should say so." "Vhell, I go back to der shoe peesiness again.

Mr. Tilden indicates calmly that he thinks a candidate without a barrel has no show. The regulation democratic witness has been reached in the Cincinnati investi gation, and has sworn at the outset that his previous swearing was false. The breed is not confined to Lousiana.

Yet he was ruin ed before. The cheering news continues to come from Maine that the republicans are gaining accessions constantly from the ranks of the opposition. Their canvass has been begun with uncommon vieor and is already far in advance of the usu al point at this time in the campaign. They are united and earnest and are de termined to win, and will, if thorough organization and hard work can trive them success. GRAVITIES.

Now that yellow fever 'Is attracting much, attention in the city it may be in teresting to trace its history in this coun try, me record oi its outbreaks are imperfect until 1793. At that time, af ter spreading through nearly every southern town, it reached Phila delphia, extending as far north as Que bec. The fever continued to be epidem ic until 1805. In 1817 it appeared again in the Gulf towns: and then in several following years attacked several south ern towns along the Gulf and Southern Atlantic, reaching New York in the ter- :i.i. : .i . i i . . iiuic rpiuemicoi loss, au interval inen occurred in the ravages until 1850. Start ing in January of that year at Rio de Janeiro, it moved gradually northward uiuit it reacneu mooue in ana Philadelphia and New York in 1856. From April to October of that year sev enty-nine vessels infected with yellow fe ver were quarantined at New York. The fever, however, was successfully con fined to Governor's Island and the Long Island shore. 1870 was the next year in which the fever made itself severely felt. On August 13 of that year it was discov ered on Governor's Island. From that time until the 26th of the following Oc- to befit remained in around New York; 159 cases were reported, 52 of which proved fatal. Most of these occurred on Governor's Island. In the city there were only 11 deaths. The next and most severe visitation of this scourge was last year. 1 his is too recent to need mention here. It is said to be a curious fact about yellow fever that it does not appear to be a contagious disease. Dr. Jane way and many prominent physicians are of this opinion. They say that it is of germinal growth ; that yellow fever it self is a living organism. It thus forms a boundary line between contagious and non-contagious diseases ; its poison is not generated in the human system, but externally. It not only attacks persons exposed to the infected place, but under unknown circumstances may be trans ported in vessels, trunks, railroad cars, etc., from point to point, and turned loose to propagate. Lake cholera, it occasion ally assumes a migratory character, traveling over great extent of country, and not unfrequently breaking through the most rigid Quarantine. In these mi grations it seenis to have a prescribed course along which it pays no attention to any impediments placed in its way.1 A singular fact in the history of yellow fever in this country is that it is of older date in northern seaports than in New urieans.

" The Japanese seem to be in no dan. ger of over-building in the way of rail roads. Since 1869, when the railroad from Yeddo to Yokohama was begun. only sixty-six and a half miles have been completed. Japan has abolished export duties on cotton and silk manufactures, silk and cotton mixtures, made dresses, porcelain, precious stones, lacquered wares, bronz es, manufactured copper, paper fans and umbrellas. Tonnage and lolls on the state canals are increasing. The auditor of New York reports, for the week ending July 14th, 191,156 tons and $&5,619 tolls, a gainst 120,175 tons and $20,955 tolls for the corresponding week last year.

For some years foreign mar kets were able to take our surplus, but of late the production has been so large that even that source of absorption has failed to relieve the home market, which explains the extreme low price, forty- two gaiions oi cruue on at uie source oi supply being worth only about half as much as the empty barrel into which it is placed. The low price, however, is opening new markets especially in the countries of the far east, and the proba bility is that the lowest depth of depres sion has been reached. Shipping List.

Crops in Germany and Russia. New York. Aueust 6. The Evening Post has a private letter from a irentle- man in eastern Germany who says, "There has been no summer, but rain nearly ev ery day- The thermometer ranges from 69 to 75 degrees. In some places har vesting has begun, but unless we have some warm, dry weather, much of the grain must rot in the fields. On our way recently irom the mountains, on two dif ferent routes, I observed that at least half of the wheat we passed was lying flat, beaten down by daily rain storms. All will be difficult to cut. and must rot or sprout before it can be secured. Ad ding this immense quantity ot gram and other feed crops to those destroyed by in undations last month, and it looks as if America would be called on to feed Ger many as well as England this winter." The accounts from Russia are not very encouraging for rye. The crops are be low the average in Podlia and Volhynia. The rye will be very light. In Pultama. wnere mere is usually a large yield of rye, me prospects are not much better. Although the harvest will not eaual that of a fairly good year, the outlook for wneat is siigutiy better in some points, but in Kieff there are some fields that will scarcely repay the labor of harvest ing. In short, the yield of breadstufls will fall considerably below that of last year. vnicago's Accident. Chicago, August 7.
