'Last and least' can no more be applied to

In answer to a correspondent at Helena,

leader of the Irish home-rulers was born in
Ireland, as were bis forefathers for several

Stewart, "Old Ironsides," as he was called, of
the American navy, and reside with her
daughters on an estate near Bordentown,
New Jersey, left her by her father. Tarne'll
is of English descent, the founder of the fam

AcvorU'lNq, to the New York Tti the

lectorshipof the port of New York, though this
has been hinted at; not even a scat in the
cabinet for himself or one of his friends,
though there has bten a suspicion that way;
but that the object of his ambition is only a
vulgar mail contract, and iu order that he
may get it, the appointment of a party asso

The New York Public nays that, except
Ntw Orleans and Providence, where there
was a slight decrease, every other city

cities uiuounted to $l,l.l5,2S5,f.01 against
$.13,317,05 the preeediug year, an increase
of 30.9 per cent, of which increase 7.7 was at
cities outside of New York. The volume of
business, spite of weather, floods and snow
blockades, was greater than lu February of

ful expansion of business. The hanks and
treasury gained from $1.14,500 to $139,S40,
082 in specie. The banks reUiued less than
$200,000 of the iuerease, while the treasury
gain was partly a mere transfer from the
Philadelphia miuL The money market was
working a little closer. An increase of
nearly 20 per cent, in e ports, with a de
crease of 21 per cent, in imports, give prom

A Memphis! Institution.
Holly Springs Jleporter: On a recent visit
to Memphis, we had occasion to mingle very
ireely with the business community, and
taough many feel more or less disappointed
over the results of the last season's business,
the usual preparations are being made for
the spriug lobbing trade. 1 his is especially
true of some of the larger houses whose solid
ity is not disturbed by the business ot a month
cr day. In the very front rank of the best
houses, not only in Memphis but in the south,
we unhesitatingly place the hrin of -Menken
Bros., whose career of aquarter of a century
has been as remarkable for enterprise, public
spirit and intelligence, as tor splendid and
enduring success. We had the pleasure of
going through their wholesale department
lately. and one ot the wouderlui things about

can be shown under one root. 1 lies and

aggregate appropriation of the bill, which t' e

feuling the bill. The committee is lighting
steadily against the amendments, and sav
they will report the bill next Wednesday,
then only seven days will he left for its con

The Cattle Dixcasen Bill.
Washington, February 21. The special
committee on cattle diseases will report this
afternoon a new bill drawn last night, and
designed to meet the objections raised against
the original bill last Saturday. The new
bill relates only to pleuro-pueumonia, which
is not satisfactory to the western and south
ern senators, who will otlcr an amendment to
include Texas fever and all contagious dis
eases of cattle. If til is amendment be
agreed to, the bill will probably pass the
senate, but the chance of its pacing the
house also is very poor.
Where Waa Hooker, of Mississippi?
Washington, February 21. The congres
sional temperance society held their forty

The t'outest at llarrisbura;.
IlARRisiiVBG, Pa., February 21. The

An Uxulanal ion from Etsmarck.
Berlin, February 21. In the upper house
the Prussian diet to-day, before the debate
on the local administration bill was com
menced, Prince Bismarck said that the state
ment read by llerr Rommel yesterdav, had
been erroneously interpreted. It was only
intended as an instruction to Ilerr Rommel,
and was not to be react word for word. No
real difference of opinion existed between
him (Bismarck) and Count Von Kulenburg.
There was, therefore, no ground for a minis
terial change. Prima Bismarck continued:
"I assumed that a kiiowU dire of my views
would lead to an agreement between the two
houses. I could not euppone tiiat a flairs
would take the present turn, and the assump
tion that material diflerences of opinion ex
ist in the state ministry is incorrect." The
house by a vote of 50. L 4 then passed a
paragraph of the bill in the amended form
in which it was sent up by the lower house.
Prince Bismarck Toted 'with the majority,
thereby attesting bis adhesion to the views of
Count Von Eulenberg.

American Pork In France.'
London, February 21. A dispatch from
Pnris states that the importation of pork
Irom America was loroiauen because ot the

tion of American pork by the lower classes,
the French government will try to devise a
less stringent but sufficiently protective
method.

$15,000, and some real estate.
Alleired Real Cause of the Dispute.
Berlin, February 21. It is stated that
the real cause of the dispute between Von
Kulenberg and Bismarck is the former's dis
like of the measures tending to socialism
and Bismarck's desire to have less scrupu
lous cflicers to manage the approaching
elections. As the emperor, however, has as
yet declined to receive Von Eulenberg's res
ignation, it is not impossible that he may re
tain his post.
