Applf.ton & Co., by West & Johnston, we have the "Genesis of Spe cies.'' This is an admirable book, both in spirit and execution. Strictly scientific in method, it proceeds to unfold its plan, call ing io witner-ses from nature to prove its positions, getting the organic forms and manifestations to speak in favor of a libe ral charity on both sides of the hotly c< n tested question of specific organization. "The problem as horn stated is by what combination of natural laws does a new 'common nature' appear, »'. «., How is m individual embodying such new char acters produced ? for the approxima tion we have of late made to its solution, Charles Darwin and Alfred Wallace are to be mainly credited. Nevertheless, if the views here advocated are correct the solution will not nntinrely present that aspect and character with which it has issued from tho hands of those writers. Neither, most certainly, will the solution agree in substance or appearance with tho more or less crudo conceptions which have been put forth by tho opponents of Darwin aud Wallace " This book should bo read by both sides in the controversy. The growing interest felt by all intelligent thinkers of our day in these questions is a cheering sign of sound intellectual progress. The book is finely illustrated and ia appreciable by general readers as well as naturalists. Southern Claims Commission.—A par- tial examination was had on Monday of the claim of Philip Kpstein, of Columbia, South Carolina, who, in 18G4, while en route from Richmond to the North, was, with several companions, captured on tho James river by tho guard boats of General Butler's command, anil railroad bonds,, bank notes, specie, jewelry and tobacco, to the alleged value of $16,000, taken from him and confiscated for the benefit of the government by General Butler, on the ground that the parties were blockade runners. The claim has for several years been before tho war department and Con gress. To aid in dispelling the clouds that be set the loyalty or disloyalty of the fast multiplying claimants, the commissioners intend to send printed lists of their names to the postoftices aud United States ofticeis io tbe South for general information. The Norfolk Virginian mentions tho case of a young man who went from tbat town to Philadelphia in mu-.-t of business as a clerk. He carried high reenmmendation* of character and capacity, lie applied to many and at last obtained a situation, but his employer had for gotten to ask where he was from. As soon as he ascertained he was from Virginia heat once dismissed him, stating that public feeling was so strong against the South that he could not afford to employ a Southern clerk. — llichmond Whig. To which the Philadelphia Press makes this reply : "Wo believe this 10 be a de liberate falsehood, manufactured tor a pur pose, and in the absence of any name or other corroborating circumstances, brand is as such. So far from there being mch a state of affairs existing here as the abovo paragraph would imply,we know of several instances where men who have lost aieg in the rebel service and have never changed their opinions, work for Republican em ployers. The people of Philadelphia do not carry their politics into business." The Centennial Celebration.—Tho .President has appointed the following as commissioners under the fourth section of the act of Congress of March 3d to pro vide for celebrating the one hundredth an niversary of American independence in the city of Philadelphia :—Asa Packer ar.d DaDiel J. Morrell, of Pa.; D. M. Boyd, Jr., and John L. Campbell, of lud.; Solomon Jj. Spink and Geo. A. Batchelder, of Da kota ; J. T. Bernard and J. S. Adams, of Fla.; E. D. Holton and David Atwood, of Wis. The act provides for the appoint ment of two gentlemen from each State aDd Territory, to be made upon the recom mendation of the Governor thereof to the President. The above comprise all the nominations that have been received by the President up to the present time. More Whiskey Consumed than is Manufactured!—A statement of the number of grain and molasseß distilleries in operation throughout the country, issued from tho revenue office, shows that there are 303 grain distilleries and 6 mo lasses distilleries—an increase of 19 over the past year. The total spirit-producing capacity of these stills is 210,304 gallons (l.tily, and the supposed daily consump tion is 230,000, or 13,646 gallons more than ia made. Tho distilleries fur the year endiDg April 30th, 1871, produced 43,123 gallons more than the past year. , «. -_>~ «.—. The Treaty with England.—Senator Cameron is expected in Washington this week (says the Chronicle) to confer with tbe President in relation to the treaty upoo hy the Joint High Commis sion fov the settlement of our difficulties with England, and which will be submit ted to tho consideration of the Senate in special session on tho 10th instant. Mr. Cameron is to be placed in possession of the material points embraced iv this docu ■ ment, in order that he may be able to ex plain them fully to the Committee on For eign Relations, of which he is chairman. The public debt shows the amazing re duction of $17,135,308 78 during the month of April just passed. It further shows that since March 1, 18ti9, (Grant's term began, it will be remembered, March 4, of the same year,) the national debt has decreased fe2_l,Bß'J,7lo 87, or. at the ij'e of nearly #9,000,000 per month. Can the Democracy answer litiHii cial argument with a sneer 1 The aVorlhcomlnar Treaty. With nil the attempts at secrecy, the main points' of the treaty, which it is understood has been concluded, between tlio United States and Great Ilritain, arc gradually coming out. The correspondent of the Philadelphia Press says that tho American a>m_issiooeril are highly pleased with the result of thcif labors, General Sclicnck*, in conversation with Mr. Sumner a few days ago, said, "I think you will like what we have done." Judge Hoar and Judge Williams are equally sanguine that the treaty will meet tho approval, not only of the Senate, but of the people. Tho points of tho treaty are : First. TLc Alabama claims art left open for the action of future commissions, to be ap pointed in tho manner specified. The prlnci« pies upon which they are to be settled, the laws to be applied, are, however, agreed upon. It is provided that two commissions shall be appointed, each to consist of five members, one to audit and allow the claims of Americans against Great Britain, and one to audit allow the claims of Great Britain againist the United States. These commissions aro to meet in neutral territory; that is, they will neither meet In England nor the United Sates* Second. Tift fishery question is settled satis factorily to the United States, with the pro viso that our government shall pay a certain sum of money for tho privilege of fishing in Canadian waters. Tho amount to bo paid has not been mentioned, but it is said to be a com paratively small sum. Third. The San Juan or boundary question is referred to an arbitrator, understood to be the President of Switzerland. It is tho opin ion of the American commissioners that tho case is so even as viewed by the British, in our favor, that the arbitrator cannot fail to give us the boundary so long claimed by us and heretofore deniod by Great Britain. ' It is just possible that tho arrangement made about tho settlement of the Alabama claims will excite opposition in tho Senate. The admission that the English claims, or alleged claims, against the United States, shall offset to any exteut the Alabama claims, is regatded as dangerous, to say the least. Senator Sumner, who has ex amined the whole subject with his usual exhaustive research, says our people have no idea of tho amount of these so-called claims which English citizens hold against tho United States. They are estimated all tho way from twenty to thirty millions sterling. This being tho case, tbey will, if admitted, not only complet ly offset our Alabama claims, but leave a large balance in favor of Great Britain. Mr. Sumner has iv his possession an official list of these English claims. They cover several print ed pages, folio size. Mr. Sumner said to day that if tho treaty on this subject is as he has been informed, and allows the Eng lish claims to bo audited and settled, we shall be lucky if we get out of the busi ness without having to pay Great Britain a large sum out of tbe national treasury, after taxing our people to pay for a war for the prolongation of which Great Bri tain was directly responsible. The United States is allowed the free navigation of the St. Lawrence and the use of the Canadian canals by paying the usual tolis. Moore's Rural New Yorker sparkles as usual with its gems of rcadiDg matter aud illustrations. Harper's Weekly is superb as always. Frank Leslie is full of good things. All for sale by Johnston it Seidell. Appointments.—The President has ap pointed Robert Boiling assessor of iutornal revenue fur the Second District of Vir ginia, in place of 11. M. Bowden, deceased. Also, Wiflard Billiard collector of interna' revenue for the Ninth District of New York. Deaf and dumb clerks seem to bs pre ferred in tho departments at Washington, as they are less likely fo ho distracted and cannot disturb others by their conversa tion. A test of their efficiency will short ly be made in the treasury department. Agricultural Machinery—lt is stated that $20,000,000 per annum is expended in the United States for reaping and mow ing machines, 125,000 being annually turned upon tho market. Johnston & Selden send us the Hearth and Home for this week. It is fresh as a rose, and contains a splendid resume cf horticultural reading. Hon. James H. Platt, Jr.—Wo tako especial pleasure in acknowledging repeat ed favors from the rising young statesman whose name appears above. Major Platt is the member of tho Petersburg district from Virginia in Congress, and secretary of the National Republican Congressional Executive Committee. In the latter capa city he proved himself an Ajax during the late Presidential campaign. As a repre sentative in Congress he has won golden opinions, and justified the high confidence of his constituents. Direct in his purpose, he acts upon the motto of Davy Crockett .• "Be sure you are right and then go ahead." lie aims* at the right aud pur sues his convictions with boldness and en ergy. Knowing his talents and merits as we do, we bespeak for him a yet moro ex tended influence iv shaping tho destiny of his country.— Ala. Slate Journal. Schooner Sunk by a Collision at Sea. Tho United States corvette Ticonderoga, from New York, arrived at Boston ou Monday. She reports that ou that day at 11 A. M., off Capo Cod, she was in colli sion with the schooner A. A. Andrews, of Providence, from Alexandria, with coal for Boston. The schooner was so badly injured that she was abandoned in a sinking condition, and her officers and crew were taken on board the Ticoude roga and carried to Boston. Drowned. —Two children, sons of Mrs. Castell, ono eight years and tho other five yeats, wrre drowned iv the rivor at Fairmount, W. Va., 08. Saturday. They were in company with another boy, about twelve years old, in a skiff, and being una ble to manage it, it went over the dam. The oldest boy clung to the skill'and was saved. Mr. Thomas Boyle, who died iv Phila delphia on Saturday, was au eccentric old miter. His sole aim appeared to be to leave a large amount belurid at Imh death.
