A Ibferiral Maczise.-An infer
nal machine found in a restaurant in
Mercer street, New York. was found
to contain two pounds of powder in
a cigar box, with matches arranged
between two pieces of saund paper, I
and attached to the cover by a small
cord. A large wA epring, such as
are used by upholeterers, was found I
between the bottom and the cover of a
the box, so as to ignite by friction'
when the cover was removed. No
cinue hasu been obtained to the maker
o this machine, but the scheme is
beliered to have oraginated with t

On the subject of the wheat crop,
i the Dallas Herald says that the
I wheat harvest is now ver, the crop
is the largest ever raised in Dallas
I co,,ty, and in many cases the yil4d
Swill be as much as twenty-five bush
ele per acre. We think the amount
of wheat in this county, for sale will
reach at least three hundred thousand
bushels. and should our farntmers be
able to sell their surplus grain ftn
I anything lik:o a fair price, say one
r dollar per bnshel, they will be all
i right as regards tmuony.
From tlnh best information we hav, I
been able to obtain on the ~lbj.ct,'
i we are sat;sfied that the wheat crop
.in the North Western States will b i
" very light, and as a natural cons.e
Squence flour will command a much ;
t higher price than it has for several
f years. In view 1ot these ficts we!
advise our farmers to hold on to their
grain until they can g.-t for it a good
i price. W\e suppose that the matket
will open at 15 cenets specie per bush
el. Any farmer who sells for less
1than this, will certainly sell at a:
i grat sacriftice.

No Compromrse in Europe -The
attempt to settle, or at least postpone.
through the agency of a cotgrs ofat
nations, the controversy ahich now
threatens Europe with a genr ral war.
is not received with in uch hope oft
success by the English press. Th,
belligerents are all ready 'or the war,
and in their coiufidence in thetr own
'powers, do not relish the i lea of post
poning the fight. The London .-pre
tator thus express. a the views of the
English Liberals:
" The project seems to us unreal;
1and, if' it is real, it is none th.. less
objretionabhl, alike, tr Enagland, be
cause she is not ready to tight for an
arrangement into which she is scar
cely interested, and will therefore'

not remove any of the ancient heart
burnings. but would leave Europe, I
armed and watchful, weighed down
with the burden of troops, nervous
with the sense of insecurity, unable
to move lust a motion should once
more bring down the badly con
structed building. A sharp cam
paign, which must be short, would
be preferablea to the security now
prevailing, and a congress could only
help to protract that insecurity."
There is no arrangement which al
peace congress could propose that t
would be acceptable under present I
circumstances. England, France I
and Rusia. if they could agree, might
require the other powers to accept a
such terms as these three should dic- I
tate, or the alternative of a war to'
enforce them. 'IThis is the onlyt
practical method, and even that
does not eczlude a war as the prede- I
cessor to the ultimate settlement.-- a
Under the eireamstanses, it is possi
ble the safest plan to allow tihe belli
gerents to fight until they have ex- 1
bhausted themselves somewhat andr
then have a congress of nations to t
arrange the terms of settlement.- I

as any p1art of the country by the

much injured. But it was curiousi
to observe how enlergetically the peo
pie were going to work to restorei
matters to their old footing. elhe
road I went along had beeu cordu- ,
