The Nashville (Tenn.) Banner, of the 2d, says that
t no period of this season, which is without a pa
llel n the history of the country, has theheatbeen
ore oppressive. Our vegetable market presents a
orlorn aspect. The tomato vines are dead. The okra
talks are dried up. The cabbage plants are with

The Boston Times argues that the great drought is
ndoubtedly caused by the extension of the telegra
bic wires throughout the country, which the editor

those sections of country where no telegraph wires

y former period.
The anti-slavery conference at Manchester, Eng

A Washington letter writer says that within the

so by fraternal affection, is simply "our brother."
he honor conferred, by assigning to the remains of
tor Gardiner a place in a national cemetery, is
rhaps explained by the epitaph. For, from the
pular estimate of congressional honesty, and the
inerous committees raised to investigate charges
ainst its members, the acknowledgment of those
whom the congressional cemetery is dedicated,
t this unfortunate felon was "our brother," has a
elancholy and satirical significance.
It is stated by Raspail, one of the best French
emists, that a solution of alones, washed over the

A married man was dragged from a carriage, from

Phillips, who is now in jail,had applied to a black
smith to make a key for the jail at Coffeeville.
Stores and dwellings have been robbed, the outlaws
evincing a reckless daring, which has led to their
detection, and the breaking up of their camp. The

The Jackson (Miss.) Flag of the Union, of the 1st

Fulton, of Canton,on Friday night last, while fast
asleep in his lodging room at Cooper's Wells. Al

The ex-postmaster of Boston is in Germany. He
sends home an account of a dinner to a railway con
gress, at which a locomotive appeared upon the ta
ble, to which was attached a train loaded with the
choicest and most solid food. The succulent train
advanced slowly, in imitation of the passenger trains
upon all German roads. After having made the tour
ot the table without stopping, in order to give a view
of the good things with which it was freighted, the
train again started, making a station in front of each
guest; permitting him to fill his plate according to
his appetite and fancy. The trains followed each
other in quick succession for two or three hours, de
parting each time well loaded with edibles, and al
ways returning empty to the depot. This is exactly
the thing for our American eating tables, where the
fashion, according to English authority, is, to gulp
every thing with railroad speed.
The Buffalo Express states that the body of a Ger

found to have fired the vestments: of the deceased,

Captain Klockgether, of the ship Windsor, which
arrived at Baltimore from Bremen, a few days since,
_met quite an incident on the passage over. When
forty days at sea, the weather being clear, an open
boat was described in the distance, with, as was sup
posed, no one in it. The captain immediately bore
down upon it, when, on examination, it was found
to contain four human bodies, or, in other words,
skeletons, as the flesh had been entirely stripped
from the bones. 'The boat was filled with water, but
being of a light, airy structure, had continued to
float for days, perhaps months, upon the turbulent
deep. In tybtbat were a large number of fish,which
no doubrf.reyed upon the bodies. A few remnants
of clothing were found in the frail bark, but so much
torn as to preclude the possibility of telling whether
they belonged to seamen or passengers. There can
be no doubt that the bodies were those of some of
the many unfortunates who were wrecked in some of
the missing vessels. Is it not probable that they I
were a part of the crew of the missing steamer City
of Glasgow?
Gen. Harney, of the United States anny, who has

The Toronto (Canada) Colonist says, we are in

and kept from time to time eating small quantities

Arrangements are made for erecting an additional

dation of pupils, a philosophical apparatus and library.
Thegovernment and discipline of this establishment
will be administered by the principal, with a kind, but
unbending rigor.
The teachers will consist of the principal and such
other professors and adjuncts as the interests of the In
stitute demand. Occasional Lectures will be deliver
ed by the clergy, and members of the legal and medical
faculty in Shreveport.
The principal will, in future, give his personal atten
tion to the recitation of all the classes int the establish
ment, assisted by Prof. ELIAs HALL, A. M., So. Ca.
College, and Prof. T. HEMPsTEAD, A. B., Delaware
The course of study will embrace t-he fundamentals
of a thorough English education, with the Latin,Greek
