Remarks on the Subject of Spring. Tho following first-rato comment on "tho subject of spring," as tint article is now boing enjoyed in Kan ens, wo clip from tho Topoka Com monwoaltb of ft lato dato. It is sur. prising to us how sonsiblo men cun willingly consent to livo in such a country whon thoy aro within two days truvol of this sunny land where spring, without any such drawbacks us prevail in Kansas, is almost per oneal. Wo have so far refrained from s Hying anything on tliis luiparinnt subject, from tho fuel lliat up to the present time it would liaie been unseusonuble. Hut now spring lias come ; it commences ttt is inorn iug tit 7 o'clock and 45 minutes, and lusts ninety-two days, twenty ltouiuand twenty tlueB minutes, as we diacover by Deterring to the beautiful calendar tinnied iu red ud black ink, and presented to us on the firm of Januury by tlio "Killoui Life In surance Company." The Killonis at the tinTof Haiti calendar very judiciously ad vised us to get our precious life insured in their office, su that wo might recover, iu case wo got killed on our summer trip to the watering places, or our proposed jour ney to Leuvou worth to write nu introduc tion to llugli Uuike's "Daughters of the llouiloir," ami other poems. Hut an wo never knew a dead nrnu to recover, we tlidu't gut insured. Well, to repeat our helvea, (as great minds always do), spring in here ; spriug is a liunibugj a fizile; iu fact, it is not what it is cracked up to be. li has acquired a great newspaper reputa tion which it is entirely unable to sustain. It is the must disagreeable of ull the sea sons. The poet Longfelloow, shortfall, or tome other fellow, has said ; "Sim u vui'iuliln an the shade llj tlio dim city gas light uiude." Slio is windy as a ward politician, and Echreeches sharply about our niiricular or (Tiins.seuding a nliiver through our Hercu lean tianies. Especially is this the cas iu March, when the marches proudly iuto nistcuce, howling like a ranting actor iu high tragedy parts at a low theatre. In April she is somewhat more p!acid,and iu May is as luzy as tho president of tho I'o jiuka lualer's league. Tho styles ull chango iu spring, and young ladies stand on tho street crossings aiul keep others waiting while they talk about tho fashions and ask how each other's false teeth fit. Young men-Bland on I he corners and bent timo on a dry goods box with tho front door brass key of the stores they sweep out. Ministers 'al ways expect a good trade when spring coiiiinoucos and the uiarriugo suason opens. CroiUet breaks out in spring, in a mild form however. Spring hats this year has no spring in them, and spring chickens sp ring clear off tho table when you go to dissect them. Spring clothes-pins aro worn this year by polico jwlgOH- while trying coses of vagran cy. Spring robius are now iu fashiou hen-roost rubbin g we mean. Spring fe ver hasalsoputiuanappearance,but isuot much sought after. There ifro frequout inquiries already for spring wheat in a lijuid form,to wash down the dust. Spring cucumbers have not commenced coming in vet, and arrangements havo been made to lynch tho first niau that brings any. l'uinters are now busy at their spring nvlt, including, of course, young ladies Willi beautiful complexions. IV o refrain from any further remarks on spring, from (lie fact that (hero is a snow Btorui com ing up. Caught. Young mon who sit up lato on Saturday nights playing cards and go to church next morn ing with it "full deck" in their pockets, should bo careful about their being bestowed so as not to fall out. Bob IIowo went to the Baptist meeting in Circlevillo and took liit scat with his sweotheart in tho front pow in tho gallery; ho had occasion to ' uho his hand kerchief, and drawing it out rath er suddenly from bin breast pock et, ho drew out tho entire pack of 'Cohen's best linon," which flow about below. Tho minister saw it and knowing whorofo ho spoke, simply opserred : "Toung man, your psalm-book has been poorly bouud. Cumulative Voting'. Tho .expe riment of cumulative voting in Il linois has not given as goncral sat isfaction as its advocates would have tho public boliovo, and an amendment to tho Stato Constitu tion has boon offered in tho Legisla ture abolishing tho now system and providing for a retnrn to the old plan. It is urgod against tho cumulative system that it incroascs thocxpenscs of elections, facilitates cheating in counting, gives greater power to tho caucus by enabling combinations to bo formed for se curing the control of elections, and that under ecrtain circumstances it might bo so managed as to leave majorities unroprosonted, giving the entire representation to minor ities.
