It contains several minerals if not
more, and among them quite an ex
tensive amount itf copper; and it is
thought by sonic that this was what
attracted Mr. Seward's attention to
it, and made him ho anxious for its
acquisition. He does not seem to
regard the reevut developments iu
this line Iu Connecticut, as sufficient
to raiso democratic stock to par.
Our English friends are a little jeal
ous iu regard to this move, thinking
perhaps it is a strategem to capture
Gibraltar, or some other stronghold
on theeasterti continent. Wo can't
blame them much, for since the Fe
nian attempt to release Ireland by
taking Canada, their ideas of strate
gic movements are somewhat con
fused.
Perhaps this new acquisition is
not quite arr Eldorado; hut it Is

and if not a great country of itself,
it becomes part of a great couutry,

that he had one ewe sheep which

13 years old which had raised him

which brought one lamb in January,
1S41, another in June, and a
third in March, 1M7. This spring
tweW of his sheep brought him 120

Ni;yn- Oki.k.yns, March '-'0, 1SC7.
To Ihe Editor of the -V. (. Times :
Acting upon your suggestions, I
have' ventured to offer a few
thoughts upon the present crisis.
As C.eii. I.ongstrect remarked, much
that is now said and written is not
pertinent to the real question at
issue. Too many see nothing but
the mere accidents, the accessories
of the occasion, and overlook cntiie
ly the great question. This as Cov.
lirown says, had its origin at the
time when the C.overument was
! established, and this quest ion is.
! whether we are one people or a mere
! conf. deration f Stales li.-ld togeih
i er as by a rope of sand. It is thi.-.
question solely which has run
' through the whole inteiiectuai i on-
test t the century, and which cur
minuted in the late terrible strile.
tutional amendment were correct or
not, for this is ol no consequence to
us now that we have to ileal with
the result of Ihos" impressions, any
one calmly considering the subject,
could as certainly have predicted
the result as he could that the sun
w ill rise to-uiorrovv.
Unfortunately, however, we did
not consider the inattir proposed to
us in that constitutional amendment
iu its proper light. We lookek up
on ii simply as a gross imposition
upon us, in some instances as an in
sult to our manhood. In itself it
was not so objectionable, and iu the
future it will be generally admitted
that iu anil of itself, it presents no
hardship except to the lew, say one
thousand, not more, 1:1 cacti State,
w ho w c disqualified from holding
office. The light in which we should
have viewed it was that it was a
measure deemed necessary by the
victors in the late great contest to
secure the fruits of their victory.
As before said, from our conduct, or
at h ast the lcpicscntalions made to
them of our conduct, and which
they believed, the masses at the
North became impressed with the
idea that we had not given up the
contest; that we still held to the
idea of our not being one people.
Had we vv i.shcd to have put an end
to the matter to havt disabused
I he minds of t he people, we could
ha e done it by adopting the pro-
ed aiuciidln.'hl. i

of Miss Ida Hall, who died froHi t:!(.
disease recently ill Springfield
M ass. Dr. Hitchcock of Aiuhi-ist
College examined portions of th(j
muscle taken from tliev body after
death, and found trichina in ' hirrro
numbers. He furnishes the follovr.
ing descriptive account ofthedis.
ease :
The disease known as trichiniasis
is eausivd by the presence of a mjr.
ute parasite infesting the voiunta r
muscles. The name of this aniiM;,!
is trichina spiralis, and in its pn)U
lar acceptation may be Cidlletl j
minute worm, somewhat like the
common vinegar eel. This animal
was first made known to tan world
by Prof. Pi. hard Oiveil et tin Lilt
ish Museum. London, in is:,., ;ihl
lots been subsequently studied mi;,,
utely by lr.. lo,vditeh and W'v
man of liosiviii, and Dr. Dahoii f
(New York. Tiie animals whii;h the
tiieliiua most comuionly infests are

it hits been loiilld ill other d')liies!ii:
animals. It is, however, most cum
monly introduced into the huiinu
system by using some prcp.(rat:.,a
of pork as uu article of food. Itpiv
bably can be introduced on v
through the intestines, and nor la
the skin. Its tenacity of life, like
f hut of some of the lower animals,
is not a little remarkable, since u
