[Now York Lotter.j
Come we now to the poets. Their
eyes are not in a fine frenzy rrlling, but
one of themrn is certainly unique. His
name is Joaquin Miller. Since last I
gazed upon that child of nature he has
let his hair grow, and it now falls on
his shoulders in a mass that resembles
molasses qandy ere yet it has been
thoroughly pulled. He wears with this
tawny chevanlre a necktie that is of the
color of the lilac blossoms, to conform
to poetical parlance, and a jewel, as
bright as that dazzling gem which the
miners of the far West would term his
"intelleck," sparkles on the mauve stir
face. To speak as the scribes, and not
as one having authority of close per
sonal communion, I should not hesitate
to pronounce Joaquin too bright, too
beautiful, to last in the good opinion of
society. It is a law of social Inter
course that the general good should be
held against inldividual glorification.
Hence these tears over the Songster of
THE WATER DOG.
A Singulnr end Deetractlie Enemy of time
A new and destructive enemy of the
oyster has been discovered. The Pitts
burg Te'leh'raph says: Ccl. Fricker was
etartled by a cry from oln of his men
engaged in opening oysters, and has
tening to him he saw him holding a
large open oyster shell at arm's letrgth.
Inside of the shell was something mote
animal than flshy looking. The oyster
man was about to throw it from him,
when the Colonel caught his hand, and
the strange creature, which measured
about two inches in length, was turned
from the shell into a saucerful of alco
hol. The animal' very much resembles
what is commonly called a water dog
except that it has no feet. The heal
resembles that of a catfish, with a large
mouth full of fine teeth. Just back of
its head are two large lobes, which give
it a little the appearance of a small
The animal, whateverit may prove to
be, must have made its access to the
shell when small, destroying the oyster
it found as the natural tenant, and grew
up to its present size within the shell.
A similar nondescript has lately been

three years ago one of these orgaolaa

who hid shipped the goode to New 0,
leans via ý8ýna, by a steamer, the only
one available, and which was not very
:ortain of going further than the latter
place. However, the time having been
leornmed ample, it was thought
that a reshipment from Havana
would bhe an easy matter. And so it
woutll have been, had not the Custom
ilouse ant horities Interfered in the mat
eor. This interforence necessitated a
^orrespon(ienco and legal forms which
alve it the complexion of an interna

The New York .Eening Post estimates
that on the let inst. the United States
Treasury held only $7,001,225 in coin
available for resumption. The balance
of coin in the treasury at the date of
the last debt statement was $86,477,680.
From this there should be deducted, ac
cording to the Po.st, in erder to ascer-
tain the available balance, as follows:
Coin eertlflrat rr. ........ .........#.3.3I,.700
atll.ed bonds ovrdur, . . .. ..... .. . .l.,10 as,
Int1IrIe t dfon andl n Ir paid. .............. 9,a s.8 ,e
Int.rct ldu.r and notI 110 inclýll I'id Iil the
debt statennl.lr ... ........ 6,4t,8.
Deducting this from the total coin
balance gives $7,001,255 available for re
sumption, as above stated. It does not
appear how much of this is subsidiary
silver, which of course would not be
available for the redemption of green
backs. Of the coin certificates, 75 per
cent represent coin deposited in the
treasury for convenience or safe keep
ing. The remaining 25 per cent are
issued on the credit of the government,
and are demand liabilities. It doesn't
look much as though the treasury would
be able to resume by the 1st of March.
