The Tunisian slde of tliis mouutaln range Inhablted by a tribe of berdsmen and farmers called the Krouiulrs. lietwoen thls tribe and the French colontsts disputcs cul- mlnatlng ln deadly border forays have occurred. Under pretext of chastlslng the Krouiulrs, French soldlers crossed the fron tler and invaded TunUlan territory. The bey is said to haye oxpressed not only a readiness to punlsh thls tribe himself, but to have sent an army agalnst it whlch in- flicted summary chasttsement for lts depre- datlons uiin the Algenans depredations nto mhlch it is alleged they were artlully decoyed by quarrels purposely fomented by the French. llut France, under pretext of protectlng French Interests ln Tunls, pro- ceeded early in the present year to take pos- sesslon of Tunisian porta and to occupy the country with a large rnllltary force. Not' wlthstandlng the protests of the bey of Tunls and his appcals to Kuropean powers for thelr interfereoce, the French troops coiitiuued thelr advance during the early nrlug inonths toward the capital of Tunls itself aud on the l'Jthof Maycoupelled the bey to slgn a treaty with France, under the terins of vvhlch Tuuls becomes toall intents and purposes a French colony. The ad vance of the French and the surrender of the bey was the slgual for revolt among the Arab tribes aud commumties, and the r.uro pean settlers In inland localities have either lled to the protection of the guns of the Ku ropean powers or have been massacred. The disaifection extends to the tribes of Algeria aud also to the nelghborlng pro- vince of Trlpoli lying between Tunls and ''gyr'" The distance from Tunis to Italy seems but a step.

T. VUI.I.Klt, l'rlocltwl. The Moral of Ouitoau's Crlinc. Tlie Chrhlian llegisler says: "Had Gui- teau shot the jiresldent of the Bolton Life Insurauce Compauy who refused to employ him as ageut, or the chalrmau of a lecture bureau who decllned bis services as a Irc turer, would uot a cry that the systems of life iusurance and lecturing, aud the meth ods of engaging agents and lecturers were thereby ehown to be very bad aud needing thorough reform have been regarded as fool- isli and childish in the extreme ? Were the ideal civil-service rules in operatlon, and had Guiteau undergone a competitive examlnation for the oflice he desired, and, failiug, then shot the chief of the exam- ining board, or, os now, the president himself, would that have pointed a moral agalnst such examlnation and a reformed civil serviceV if not then, why now? C.in the " irresponsible act of an insane man " be falrly brought forward as an ar gument agaiust auy systeru V it does not appear from the published account that he had rendered any Bervices that would en tltle blm to ollice on auy politlcal grounds. Ue seems to have had au iusaue desire for notoriety, and to be one of those intellectual and moral monstrositles who sometlmes come to llght.the cause of whose production only Infinltu wiedom kuows. The civil ser- vice and inodes of appointment may be os bad au its severest critics declare ; his act prores uothiug, and the attempt to hold them responsible shows a lack of well con- sidered reasous for their hostility lu the miuds of those who make it. It is either thoughtless or dishouest, and a clear case of trying to make capital out of the sad event that has shocked the nation is a gravo of- feuce agalnst any htgh code of morals, and is calculated to destroy the respect of think' Ing men for the intellectual clenrness and falruess of those who make it, while It can not permaneutly help any good cause. It is a striking manifestatlon of the strauge in tellectual and moral obtuseuess and confu sion which seems U have seized upon many of our cultured men during the last few years, notably iu their comments upon publio affairs (some of our Unitariau clergy are striking examples), which Is at least as de moraluiug iu its general influence as ollice seeking." l'rohlbltlon lu Jfainc. Kx-Uoveruor Uingley gives some facts and fig'ures in response to some random shots at tbe 1'ine Tree state as to the worklng of the Malne liquor law. He does uot claim that the mlllennium has dawned on tbe state, or that criminals are not found there, but he does claim that prohibition has closed every brewery aud distillery in M aiue, and such is known to be the fact. In the second place, the same autbority says, pro hibition has closed tbe open dram-shops in Malue. Thls is a great galn, since it re moveatheopen flaunting temptation. Driven under grouud, Malne hai a third less grog' sbops of thls character thau the average of the states of the Unlon. That average is one dram-sbop to every '.'30 iubabitants. In 1838 Malne had one dram-sbop to every 225 inhabitants. The average in Malne to-day. at the outslde, is one secret dram-shop to 700 inhabltauts. There are only 750 !! censes issued ln the state, and of these 200 are druggista. More thau half the towus of the Btate have not a secret groggery. In I.ewiston and Auburn, where tbe law is en forced, there is only one secret groggery to 1,000 inhabitants. In llceuse clties the average is one grog-shop to 200 iuhabltauts. Then, as tocrlme, Malne has 1U0 convlcts ln state prison, whlch is one to 11,000 Inhabit ants i Alabaina, one 1,100; Callfornia, one toCOO; Connecticut, one to 2,100; Massa chusetts, one to 2,200 ; New llampshire, one to 1,000; New York.oueto 1,100; Vermont, one to 1,800. The law, wherever falrly ad uiinUtered, supplemeuting moral agencies, has, the goveiuor concludes, greatly alded iu luitlgatiug the evils of the dram shops. T iif. peculiaritles of Mrs. I.incoln are the subjectof some remlnisceuces by the Hart ford J'oil, whlch says that wheu they went to Washington iu 1801 Mrs. Lincoln ran up a dry goods und f urnlture blll at New York for $25,000, greatly to Mr. Lincoln' embar rassmeut. They wero paid for out of the contlngent account subsequently. Slio brought slxty trunks of goods and rellcs home f lOin Kurope, aud took au ecceutrlo iuterest lu their couteuts. She used to an noy Mr. Lluciilii very inucli by her Jealousy, dlsplayed upou very iuopportune occaslous aud alwajs wlthout cause. In the analysls of fertllUers the ingredi ents of principal commercial value are nitro eon. nhosphate of lime and potash. The dlfTerenceiu form, combination and mechan ical conditlon in whlch these substauces are found creatly atfects their value. The present method of analyzlng fertlllzers recog- nizes these distiuctlons only in regard to phosphate of lime, and the values founded upon these analyses are altogether false and erroneous. ln regard to nitrogen, the most costly, we are notinformed as to the amouut of soluble or insoluble, but it is usually stated os organic substanco " ylelding ammonia,' but we are left in Ignorance as to when these changes take place ln the soil. As to the other constituents contained in fertll lzers, no mention is mado of them, as they were valueless, although they usually comprlse nlne-tentbs of tbe whole weigbt, and are of value. When giving an analysis, the whole should be given, with the form and condition in which they exist Then it will be known what the fertilizer is com- posed of, and an estimate of its agricultural as well os its commerclal value can be found otherwise, by the present methods, which do uot recognize these distlnctions, the conclu sious drawn from them are uncertaln, uure liable and of nuestlonable value. A fertil izer can be made containing every element of plant food in abundance, and yet be prac- tlcally worthless. The potash of feldspai thephosphoric acid of massive apatite, and the nitrogen of leather scraps, are nearly in nutritious for crops, because they are locked up in insoluble combmatious. In commer cial fertilizers tbe nitrogen is estimated at from fiftecn to twenty-five cents a pound This is tbe commercial value, for the reason that it caunot be obtained ln a form suit- able for commerclal purposes for less thau that ; but it can be obtained ln the form of fish scrap, dried blood and meat scraps, at about teu cents a pound. Tbe agricultural value is quite another thlng, aud it should not be estimated at a higher rate than it can be produced for in an agricultural form. 1'eat contains two and a half per cent of nitrogen, and there are but few f arms whlch have not an abundance of it on them or in their vicinlty. As it is dug out its nitro gen is locked up in insoluble combinations, but by composting the peat with any alkali (soda ash and wood oshes at the present tlme are the cheapest) ln sutticient quautlty to neutralize ita acid properties, will render it soluble, and &l it for food for planU at a cost of about two cents a pound for nitro gen, os is well explained in " Dana's Muck Manual." It is a well recognized fact, that, next to temperature, the water supply is the most influential factor lu the product of a crop. roor solis glve good crops ln seasons of plontiful and well-distributed rains, or when sklllfully irrigated; but InsufOclent molsture in the soil is an evil that no sup plies of plant food can neutrolize. l'eat properly composted with an alkali is a great absorber of moisture. It tends to keep tbe soil molst even ln tlmes of drouth, and as it decomposes it gives off carbonio acid gas, a powerf ul eolvent of the soil, thus liberatlng and rendering soluble other ele- ments of plant food to nourish the growing crops. Frofessor Stockhardt of the Hoyal Academy of Agriculture at Thorend (Ger many), in his chemlcal field lectures says: " If a farmer deslres that a mauure met with in commerce should undergo examlna tion, he will act wisely lu proposing to the chemlst who is to institute the analysis the following questions : Flrst, what quantity does it coutaiu in oue hundred parts of nit rogen ? Second, what quantity does it con tain in one hundred parts of organic mat- ter? Thlrd, what quantity does it contaln in one hundred patts of salts of potash ? Fourth, what quautlty does it contaiu In one hundred parts of salts of sodaY Fifth, what quantity does it contaiu in one hun dred parts of phosphate of lime ? Slxth, what quantity does it contaln lu one hun dred parts of gypsum? Seventh, what quantity does it contaiu in one hundred parts of carbonate of lime Iu counection with maenesia 1 Then ask, In what cotn- blnation is the nitrogen princlpally pres ent ? As au ammonlacal salt 7 As a uitrio acid salt ? As an organic substance of easy, or of diflicult, decay ? lly the reply to the firat luqulry, be Is placed in position to cal culate the approxlinate value in money of the manure iu question, whllst from the subsequont answers ho acquires tolerably certaiu informatlon as to the slow or rapid actiontbat may beantlcipated from its use." Iu tlio Massachusetta Agricultural Heport of 1875 and 70, pago three huudrod slxty four, in rrofessorfloessman's report as state lnlctor of fertilizers, he says : " Agricul tural chemists dlstingulsh very properly be tweeu actual aud poteutial ammonia ; the latter refera to the ammonia whlch, iu the course of tlme, will result from the decoiu- position of tlio organlo malter containing ultrogeu. Iu some instancen thls hapens very rapldly; lu others It requlres inonths, and eveu years, to briug out Uiu full amouut of nitrogen for actlon. Our dcalers ln fer tilizers havo not yet been serlously isked to recognize the great dlfference whlcli exlsls between the value of nitrogen ln the form of ammonia comtounds, guano, meat, flsh, blood, eto., and In thatof halr, hornwoolcn refuse, leather scraps, elc, although ln the form of the latter it is scarcely worlh one- half the amount of the former. lor the farmer's interest, is It not tlme the rjuosllon should bo serlously asked, and not oalf asked, but answered? On pago three hundred xty-seven he says : " Fertilizer denlers are charglng thlrty cents a pound for nitrogen wlthout reference to the form ln whlch it is present." In report of 1870-77, pige two hundred flfty-cight, he ssys : " Thojphos phorle acid lu the hones, steamed and raw, is valued accordlng to the tnechanleol con ditlon of the bone after grlnding ; the aame rule applles with equal force to tbejalua tions of the nitrogen in their nitrogenous matter." On page three hundred (elghty- two (report of 1871-75) he says i "The most important informatlon which the farmer needs, to secure to himself the full agricul tural value of any commerclal valueofforod lorsale, couslsts lu knowing the exacc ind, the amount, and the chemlcal and physlcal cnndltlon of the essentlal artlcles of.tilant- food It contains; wlthout this, aftional system of manurlng becomes imposslble. As tlie laws in regard to fertlllzers do not requlre thls informatlon to be given, of what value are the laws, except posslbly to ralslead? Same report, page three hun dred elghty-onc, he says : " Manuf acturors of fertlllzers ought to take lnto considera- tion that the artlcles they offer for salo have not only a commercial value, but also a pe culiar agricultural value, aud that the latter Is independent of the former, for both are determined by qulte a different standard. The commerclal value depends here, as well os elsewhere, on the relatlon of demand and supply ln the market, and is controlled by competltion. The agricultural value de pends on its pecullar crop-producing capao- ity, and is determined by the judicious ap plication of the farmer. A shovelful of lime may do more good under certaiu clr cumstances than several times lts welght of more costly drled, blood." IIow long wlll it be before farmers have laws framed and passed in their interest 7 Not tlll they bestir tbemselves and look to their Interests (" Who would be free them- selvos tnust strike the blow "), and not leave legislatures, through ignorance, or design, on the part of a few, to pass laws for a favored few at the expeuse of the many. It Is timo the subject was understood and ven- tllated, aud until it is the manufacturers of fertilizers wlll coin money by the sweat of the farmer's brow. Farmers ask no protec tion at tbe hands of the general government, neither should they be made to pay duties on pliosphates or superphosphates, ammouia salts, potash salts, and nitrates. These, to them, are the raw materials from which they manufacture or grow their crops. Thls is one step to be taken ; another is to have the laws in relatlon to the analysis of fer tilizers so made that they shall state the exact kind, the amount, and the chemical and physical condition of the articles of plant-food they coutain. Witbout tbls a ratlonal system of manuring becomes im possible, and manurlng, in New England particularly, Is the most important question the farmer bas to grapple with. Anukkw II.

Vermont is full of iugeuious men, and many of them are farmers. Very many val- uable improvements of various sorts orlgin ato here, and not the least among these are tho improved varleties of potatoes, graln, etc, that result from the palient labors and careful experlmentatton ot our farmers Nearly all the leadlng varieties of potatoes, and not a few of wheat, corn, oats, etc, were produced in Vermont. Mr. I'ringle of Charlotte alone originatod the Snowflake, Alpha and Huby potatoes, and the Cham plain and Defiauce wheats. Of the latter the introducers, 1). K. llliss & Sons of New York, have had orders by the cargo for for- eign markets, particularly for Australia. They were obllged to supply tbemselves for the flrst year or two from Vermont farms, but these cargo orders have to be grown iu the west because wheat ls lald down ln New York at a cheaper rate of freight by the car load from Minuesota than from Addison county, Vermont. Vermont farmers were ready to grow the wheat and deliver it to the cars os cheaply as the Minnesota farm ers, but the cheaper freight gave the job to Minnesota. In the same way potatoes orig- inaling in Vermont are grown for New York seedsmen ln Northern New York ratber than tn Vermont, on account of the greatly less freight charge there from the farm to tbe New York warehouses.

It was the State Ilcgulatlon of Kallioads. An excliange, noticing an artlcle in the July North American Jleview upon the above toplc, written by Mr. J. M. Moson, says truly that it throws a good deal of light on the question whetber the state has the rlght to reg- ulate railway charges. It is one of the main arguments of the railroad managers that the management of a rallroad ls a business, in no way different from any other busiuess; tbat tho question of charges should be de- clded by the law of supply aud demand regulated by natural competitlou ; and that for the Btate to Interfere with this natural method of regulating charges ls os iudefen- sible as state interference with any other kind of business would be. Iu other words, it isurged that the state has no morerigbt to ssy at what prico a bushel of wheat shall be carried than to say at what price it shall be sold. This is certaiuly a plausible state ment of tbe case, and the author of the artl cle referred to labors to show that it is fallacious and untenable. After showing that, merely as a corpora- llon, a railway company differs in no respect from any other corporation, Mr. Mason says that ln order to determine the powers and immunttles of a railway we must ascertain the specific rlghta conferred on it by legisla- tive charter. Tbese riglibi are riglits of publlc properly as dlstinguished from rights of private property, and are two iu number the eminent domalu, or the power to take private property for publio use wlthout con sent of the owner, and the rlght to take toll It is this second right wtth which the artl cle ls malnly concerned. The allegation that a railway is purely a busiuess, and lts charges to be regulated by business princl ples, rosts on the assumptlon tbat the rail way is private property, and the charge made and paid is a consideratlon for the use of such private property by other per sons. llut the legal vlew ol the case, Jir. Masou urges, is that the rallroad is a hlgh way, and as such publio property, and tbat the charge demanded and paid la strictly and emphatically a toll. If this latter vlew ls souud law, it follows as a matter of course that the state may and should fix tbe maximum ot these tolls. llut even in its capacity of common carrier, Mr. Masou holds that the rallroad's charges are subject to the state. The carrier, accordlng to law. may name bis own price at bis peril ; if it is unreasonable, he is Uable for damages Whether it is uureajonable or not is a ques tion for judicial declsiou, but it is compe- tent for the legislature to pass a schedule of rates whlch wlll be obligatory on the courls as a rule of evideuce. llut it is further urged by the railroads tbat thelr chartera are of tbe uature of contract, and cannot be impalred by subse quent state leglslatlon about charges. Mr. Masou replies tbat the statutes whlch con ferred the charter conslst of two clauses flrst, the glft of the right to take toll ; aud secoudly, a legislatlve declaratiou ot the amouut of toll to be consldered reasonable. The polut at Issue has never been declded, but it is competent for tho courts to hold, iu tlie present state of the law, that the glft ot the rlght to take toll Is a contract which cannot be impalred by subsequent legisla. tion, but that the Bchedule ls only a rule of evideuce, aud as such may be modifled at the discrctiou of the legislature.

I)ut the occurrence is so rare that a small volume would probably contaln the records of all such lives in a generatlon. There are more churches dyiug for want of worklng pastors than there are pastors dying through excesslve work for their churches. There are Sabbath-schools that are lauguishing because of want of energy in those who conduct tuem. inere are classes that make no progress because lazy teachers Bit before them, and yawu through a lesson which they have not pre pared, and which they have not earnestness enough to teacn li tney were preparea.
