We hope and believe that Judge Bennett's standing may not be affected by the unscrupulous course of a clique who liaye no use for a fair and impartial court Articles of impeachment have been re ceived in the house against O. P. Bradford, late vice consul general at Shanghai, China. The articles charge that Bradford became interested in a railway in China contrary to treaty obligations that he deceived the Chinene authorities respecting the road for pecuniary gain that ha was cruel, unjust and extortionate as consular judge that he opened businesi letters and vouchers for larger sums than he paid out that he took Mexican dollars as postal agent at Shanhai at par and charged the government premium therefor that he embezzled $2,600 due the government. The senate of the United States is en deavoring to undo the work of the house, by declining to concur in its amendment to the appropriation bill, providing for the nu merical reduction of territorial legislatures. The senate does not disturb tbe house pro vision cutting down the per diem to four dollars, but strikes out the clause limiting membership of the council to nine, and of the house to eighteen. This is the proposi tion contended for in the house by the dele gates from tie various territories, and if the bill passes in this shape it will be generally acceptable. Territorial legislatures have been, to a considerable extent, composed of men who procured their election because they wanted the salary connected with the position. The proposed reduction will have a tendency to keep this sort of talent at home. JUNE MAGAZINES. 8CRIUXEII. A N•TTAiit.E feature in the June ScitniNEit is the resumption by \V. J. Linton of the tccent controversy in the New York pa pers over the question whether an engraver should be called an artist. Mr. Linton's position, as probably the most celebrated of living woouenumvers, gives espccial weight to what he lias to sny. Those who arc ac ciut mert to think an engraver's work mere ly the cutting of so many lines of a ceitain lenglli near or far together, will find much information in this essay respecting the pe culiar difliculties with which he has to con tend. Mr. Linton's paper is entitled, "The Kograver: his Function and Status." Mr. Russell Sturgis, aconnoisseur in engravings and etchings, writes concerning the word of George Cruikshank, wiith over twenty illustrations of his various styles and sub jects, selected from Mr. Sturgis's large Cruikshank collection. The services of Mr. Marsh and Mr. Cole are enlisted to en emve Mr. IlioHan's drawings which ac company Dr. Brewer's second paper on "Bird-Architecture," which is devoted to the weaver-birds, including an account of an oriole with two wives. One of tbe cuts exhibits this unique and happy family at home. "That Same Old 'Coon," by Frank R. Stocton, plays several characters, being a story of Virginia life,—a study in two kinds of dialcct, and a practical treatise on 'coon and possum hunting it is, moreover, illustrated with a number of pictures by Mr. W. L. Nheppard. "The story of Les ken," by Miss Anna Eichberg, finds its hero in a musician of Wallack's Theater and its scene in Holland, and is illustrated in silhouette by Howard Pyle. "Misery's Pear Tree," a translation of a Flemish legend by Dr. W. Nichols, has two sketches by Charles F. McKim, the architect. "Tbe Eleventh Hour," a story, by Emma Lazarus, and the two Berials, "Rosy" and "His In heritance," complete the fiction of the num ber. Other papers are: "A New American Industry," by Charles Barnard, descriptive of fruit evaporating "A White Day and a Red Fox," bv John Burroughs .-and "Lying as a Fine Art," by W. Kingsley of The New-Englander who examines the claims of Rev. Samuel Peters as an' artist, basing them upon his "History ol Con necticut" from which curious extracts are given. According to Mr. Kingsley, Peters is the chief authority for tbe popular mis conception of the so-called "Blue Laws" of Connecticut. Mrs. Piatt, Edward Kjfg, Caroline A. Mason, Maurice F. Egan, and others contribute the poetry of the number. In tbe departments, Dr. Holland discusses the political significance of Bayard Taylor'a appointment, "Crime in its own Element," and "The Art of Speaking." "The Old Cabinet" relates to the principles of taste, "Literary Art-judgments and tbe Literary Element in Art," "The Academy Exhibi tion," and summarizes and further discusaaa "The Rcccnt Controversy about Engravers." The other departments contain some spe cial articles, such as "Improved Dwellinga" for working people, with a ground-plan, In -'The World's work," and suggestions about the planting of "Annuals" in "Home and Societv." Mr. II. C. Banner has In "Brie a-Bric'' some humorous verse in tha old French metrical forms now attracting at tention in England. ST. NICHOLAS ^pens with a striking |frontarpiece, drawn Iv J. E. Kelly, depicting the brave deed of girl in saving a blind man from being run over. Tbe first story in the number is a abort brisk one by Sarah Winter Kellogg, illus trated by Sol. Eytinge. It Is called "One Saturday," and tells of the pranks, and jokea and mirbapa of eight lively boys and girls on a picnic by tbcmselvs. Next comes a funny account of the adventures of "Mrs. Peter Piper's Pickles," with laughter mov ing illustrations by F.

On last Saturday an ap plication waa made to the U. 8. court of Yankton lor the aeizurc of the goods of E. E. Hudson, trader, on the grounda that ha waa operating without the proper licenae.
