No terrible murders, ao cidenls, fires, or scandalous divorce suits. The cold weather has inevita bly brought much suffering to the large classes of needy people, coal coi.; tinuring at such an exorbitant rate tlat they with difficulty can procure sufficient fuel to cook their scanty food. While there is unusual distressand poverty prevailing here this winter, there is also a good deal of gaiety going, for the families of Fortune, for "Some muBt work and some must play; So runs the world away." . The Witherell and Smith nuptials, which lately were held in Trinity church, gave a rare display of wealth and fashion. Miss Smitu borne: a niece of Mrs. A. T.

In reply to this, Mr. Blair stated in tho columns of the Union "we were misinformed respecting Mr. Lamar on the points in question; that from first to last he has entertained di rectly the contrary opinion, holding that is settled beyond controversy by the terms of the constitution, and by the uniform usage under it, that it belongs to Congress to count the electoral vote, and that the duty of President of the Senate extends only to the safe keeping of packages, and to breaking the seals in the presence of the two house of congress. We make the correction with unfeigned pleas ure, and regret very much huving been misled to do Mr. Lamar injus tice We had no distrust of Mr. Lamar, and approve entirely the liberal eourse by which as much as by his great ability, he has attained his high position in the councils of the nation." Your correspondent is no cham pion of Senator Lamar, for we did gainsay his right to ignore the wishes of his people on the 'Silver bill' conveyed through their chosen rep-' reBentatives, but do not approve of this attack of Mr. Blair who simply reiterates what he once "swallowed," NONA.

The Montage Review says Herr Finkel burg declared that should the plague increase Germany would establish a military cordon of eighty thousand men on the frontier, and that the order for their mobilization was ready. . . London, January 25. According to the British Medical Journal, great alarm prevails in Eastern Europe over the rapid spread up the Volga River, in the southeastern part of Russia, of an extremely fatal disease believed to be a plague. It is thought to have been brought to Russia by two regiments of Cossacks returning from the war in Turkey. The dis ease was regarded at first as typhus fever and neglected, but its terrible mortality soon compelled the local authorities to take steps for its res triction. Rigid quarantine was en forced aguinst Astrakan, where it originated, but tha panic-stricken inhabitants of that city fled in all di rections, and scattered the germs of the infection oyer the provinces of Samara and Saratap lying along the River Volga higher up. In spite of all efforts at restriction, it soon reach ed Tsaritzin, an important trading town on the Volga, connected by rail with the whole of ttussia and .Eastern Europe, and finally appeared in Nizhal Novgorod, only a few hours distant from Moscow. Some Russian newspapers consider the disease only a species of malL nan t typhus fever, but the St. Petersberger Medicinische Wochinscbrift, of January 11th. says it cannot be doubted from the tenor of communications to official papers tbiit it is a plague. Doctor Zulekauei and Professor .Butkin conclude from its rapid Bpreud and extraordinary mortality, there being few if any re coveries, that it is a plague .in its worst form. A most rigid quarantine is enforced against the infected towns and villages, which are divided into districts, and not allowed to com municate with one another. Tho Vienna Medical Review states that about one third of the physicians in Russia died during the late war, and insist upon the importance, in the interest of the whole of Europe, of sending medical assistance to Russia and helping her keep down her ma lignant enemy. t'Don't Need your Advice."

I believed him to be a representative man of the South, and subsequent events have shown that I was right. And I be lieved then, and believe now, that if he could have been nominated for president and elected the war would have been saved, and the attempted disunion prevented, for he would have been choson to be president over thirty two States, rather than fifteen, and my experience has been that the north always got more consideration on questions of human liberty from a southern statesman as president be fore the war than it did from a north ern doughface, and that remains true down to the present time.

Instead of waitiug until the plitgue has Bpreud over their countries and then sending a dozen or two commissions to find out how this came- about, the Austrian and Prussian governments have already appointed a joint commission to study the plague be fore it reaches their limits, and to pre pare some plan by which its spread into their domains can bo prevented. In ad dition, Austria has already declared a quurantiue against Warsaw, although the plague is yet a thousand miles from that city. The Austrian government evidently has uo fear of losing the Polish trade; it is more interested in preserving the lives of its people. JV. O. Democrat.

Whenever horses and cows are pl lowed a large range of fertile feed all at once, it is the nature of tbe an- imals not to go quietly to feeding, but t run all over the enclosure, examine the boundaries, snatch a mouthful of feed now and then as they run, and finally to come to tLe yard at night, tired, overfall, having trampled down three times as much as they have eaten. At Watauga, N. C, Major Harri son Osborne shot and killed J. Ii. Martin for persisting in grinding out "Grandfather's Clack" on a violin. This case is at par with that of Bill Longley, who killed a man in a Texas hotel because he would persist in snoring after Bill had politely re quested him to desist. Both cases might be classed a and "killing in self-defence." Nothing can exceed the intense af fection which a girl deals out to her father for a day or two before the time when she's going to ask for a now dress. Bathing Overdone. Tho I.BU'Nl uog M.ir y A New Zealand paper relates the following : J. here is a dog at 1 aupo, and also a young pig, aud these two tillord a curious example of annual sa gacily and confidence in the bona fide of each other. These two animals live at the native pah on the opposite side of Tapuuehuniiu, and the dog discovered some happy hunting ground on the other side and in formed the pig. The pig being only two months old, informed the dog that be oould not iwira across the river, which at that spot debouches from the lake, but that in time be hoped to share the adventures of his canine friend. The dig settled the difficulty. He went into the river, Btandinsr up to his neck in water, and crouched down ; the pig got on his back, clasping his neck with his fore legs. The dog then swam aoross thus carrying his chum over. Regu larly every morning the two in this way go across, and forage around Tapaueruru, returning to the pah at night; and if tbe dog was ready to go home before the pig he would wait until his friend came down to be ferried over. The truth of this story is vouched for by several who have watched the movements of tha pair for some weeks past. A writer in the London Medical Times argues that the general opinion (hut frequent cold and warm baths, ar.J 'wasiiing the skin with cold water, accompanied by friction, are con duuive to health and cun do no harm, is a conclusion that cannot be ad mitted; for, on the one hand, millions of men take no baths of any kind, or at uiont slightly wauli their faee una h.vii.is (jIich ti Wf.ok, i.n ' jet livs- fu old age in I lie eiij- jmeni of good heiill.n. whiie. on run other baud, no one is ubie lo prove Uiat the uae of the various forms of baths wards off d sense, or that washing in cold water furnishes any protective power against catarrh, rheumatism, etc., the diseases which are supposed to par ticuiarly aiise from catching cold. A comparison, too, savs this writer, of the frequency of disease in towns where baths aie frequently resorted to, and in the country, where they rarely can be got, says but little for their prophylactic power; and,' al though it cannot be said that their frequent employment in towns is a cause of the greater mortality there in, neither can it be said that wash ing "all over" with cold water pre vents disease.
