Editor THURSDAY, JUNE 6, 1879. The Rev. Lyman Abbott, editor of the Christian Union, bnptlzcd in Farmington, Me., a few weeks ago an Infant (laughter of the young wife of the Rev. Jonas Burnhnm of Farming ton, who is eighty years old. A writer in the New Orleans Timet who has talked of late with many negroes in the disaffected dis tricts of Louisiana says that the mania for emigration is rapidly increasing and threatens ultimately to result in half of the colored men of the State going to Kansas. Mrs. Ellis, of Ithaca, N. Y., has In her house a large room the floor of which is covered with sawdust and witli two leafless trees and many bam boo perches in it, where she keeps more than a hundred canary birds, raised from a singlo pair which she bought a few years ago. She can identify almost every bird and tell its nge. Representative Murch of Maine says that the Maine green backers will renominate Joseph L. Smith, their last year's candidate, for Governor; that they Mill ignore any coalition with the Democrats, audthatthey will make an out-and-out greenback plat form, and then if the Democrats want to stand on their platform and vote for their candidates they can do so. It is said of Haynes Hinman, living two miles east of Utica, who died recently, aged sixty-six, that although possessing the faculty of speech, he had not uttered two con secutive words for fifty years. When sixteen years old, hearing his father swear at a member of the family, he mode a vow that he would never speak again. This vow was kept for seven years. He then met with an accident, Which bruised the fincrers of hln loft hand, the pain drawing from him the exclamation, "O!" On but one other occasion was he heard to speak. This time the word "See!" was called forth by a snake that crawled ovr n sleeping child. A column might be nueu by a recital of Hinman's excen tricities. Some of his devices to avoid conversation were crafty in the ex treme. He was a close student, and he has left a voluminous diary during ms sixty years of silence. He left a fortune of $24,000 to a nephew, with the admonition "Keep your mouth shut." It will be seen bv the hiirhlv Im portant report of Treasurer Noyes to me estate benate. regarding the condi tion of the treasury, that then, is mi actual deficit of over two millions of dollars, and that the outlook is any thing but encouraging. With this startling exhibit of the financial con dilion of the State, is it not time for the Legislature to halt In its mad ca reer and introduce the most, rigid economy? The present session has been enormously expensive, because It lias been continued twice as long as there was any necessity for it, and many wild schemes have been in dulged In which only increased the burden on the treasury without any corresponding benefits. In addition to this enormous cost, the greater part Of the sessson has been spent in trying to devise some plan for taking several millions of dollars out of the treasury, apparently without any regard as to how the money was to be raised. If some plan is not speedily devised to raise money to meet the present deficit, the treasury will be in a most lamenta ble condition, and the great State to which we have always pointed with such pride .will be virtually bankrupt. The time has come for action on the part of our law-makers. Williams port O. dc B. Death of General James Shields. Ottumwa, Iowa, June 2. General James Shields, late United States Sen ator from Missouri, died suddenly in this city at 10J o'clock last night. He had appeared in his usual health on Sunday, and ate a hearty supper at C o'clock, after which he wrote several letters, but just before retiring he com plained of a pain in the chest, and shortly afterward said to his niece that he was dying, and in thirty minutes expired, sitting in his chair, remaining unconscious to the last. He lectured in this city on Wednesday evening last, and had remained here visiting relatives. His remains will leave here as 5 o'clock this evening for his home in Carrollton, Missouri. Twenty-seven Children Poisoned. Boston, May 29. An Island Pond, Vt., dispatchtates that there have been nine deaths so far of children who drank from a poisoned brook, viz: Edward Morse lost twoof his children, John Aldrich three, Fred. Simpson one, L. Wilson one, Mr. Park one, and John Cole one, the others cannot live. Potato tops poisoned by Paris green were also thrown Into the brook, caus ing the belief that the latter Is the prim cause more -than the carcasses of dead animals. There is terrible distress here. Work is suspended, and there is great excitement. Another dispatch states that twenty-seven children were poisoned by drinking from the brook, and that the farmer who allowed the carcasses to be thrown into it will be arrested. The bodies of the dead children soon decomposed, and had to be buried forthwith.. Island Point, Vt., May 30. Two more children of John Aldrich died from drinking water from (he poisoned brook, making 6 his entire family. Mr. Aldrich is insane. 1 Washington Letter. From our regular Correspondent. Washington, D. C, April, 2 The Ways and Means Committee of the House has reported a resolution to adjourn June 10, and a great many people wish Congress would take it self off at that time. But I guess it won't. The general impression among members of botli houses is that some days or weeks longer will be re quired, especially as no definite plan has been agreed upon for disposing of the appropriations. Baring the pas sage of the Warner silver bill and the veto of the legislative bill, the situation with reference to business is pretty much the same as it was a week ago. There has been a good deal of inter est here in Ohio politics for some time past. Indeed, it looks almost as though the Washington end was rather run ning the machine. Up to the meeting of the Republican convention there was a strong impression here that the Governorship question would finally settle down to a contest between Sher man and Thurman, but the nomine tion of Foster changes the aspect of things. The Interest of Presidential candidates is what complicates mat ters from a Washington standpoint, and, as far as Ohio is concerned, the Grant movement has received acheck, while Sherman "takes the cake," as the boys say. It is an Administration triumph. Secretary Sherman is the Administration candidate for Presi dent. His friends and theAdminis- tration's friends expect to see him beat Grant fortlie nomination. Blaine is doing positively nothing in the matter of his own candidacy. He says he came so near the nomination once that he Is sure lightning cannot strike him. If the nomination should come, he would no doubt be very glad of it, but he will not incur animosities and subject himself to the annoyances and the anxieties of being a candidate. Of course his friends will urge his case as they did before, but I really do not believe that Blaine has any hope for himself. He thinks Sherman is stalk ing ahead very rapidly. Pennsylvania is no doubt for Blaine, but what will the Camerons do? Until Sherman be gan to loom up as a candidate,' Don Cameron was heartily for Blaine, after Grant. He has been disposed to be for Grant against everybody, but now ho may switch around and go for his uncle, John Sherman, in whose house he courted his charming wife. But Don will never try any more of the Hartranft business. The probability is that he will be for Sherman first, then Grant, and then Blaine. He has given up Conklingasan impossibility, Ramsdell, of the Philadelphia Times. relates the following anecdote about Don and Blaine, which will be under stood by those who remember how Don, by main strength as it were, kept the Pennsylvania delegation from voting for Blaine in the Cincinnati Conven tion, when two-thirds of them were for him, and a few votes would have nominated him : The other day, when the recommendations for the appoint ment of a Pennsylvania Judge were ready to be sent to the President, Blaine, Don and another Senator, who shall be nameless, stood together in the Senate Chamber, one of them holding the envelope addressed, "The Presi dent, Executive Mansion." A page stood near at hand ready to take the recommendation to the White House. The nameless Senator, who held the envelope, placing his hand the young Senator's shoulder aud said: "Don, Blaine ought to be in the White House receiving papers bearing that address." "Yes," answered Don, "and he would have been if I had not been a d d fool," and he and Blaine shook hands on it. One of the well-known women of Washington is Mrs. KateSprague, the beautiful and accomplished daughter of Chief Justice Chase, who married Senator Sprague, of Rhode Island, when the Spragues were wealthy and powerful. She is now living here at "Edgewood, "her father's suburban residence, and seems destined to al ways occupy public attention in one May or another. Last year she suc ceeded in getting a bill through Congress exempting this property from taxation, and also won a lawsuit of some sort here in the Dis trict courts, Senator Conkling appear ing as her attorney. Now she has Just won another suit, the circumstan ces of which have caused considerable comment. A photographer sued her for a bill of $55 for photographs and views taken to illustrate a biographical sketch of her father. The photographs were made by her order and submitted for her approval, but she placed the financial responsibility uion the au thor of the biography. The photog rapher sent the bill to her husband, ex Senator Sprague, who replied that he had nothing to do with Mrs. Spraguo's bills. The court refused to give judg ment against her on the ground that a married woman is a nonentity in the District, and cannot be sued. It com plicates matters somewhat, as the position that she does not own separate real estate don't consist exactly with the exemption of a fine piece of prop erty from taxation because the owner of it is a woman, and the daughter of a man the country has loved to honor. Mrs. Sprague was the observed of all observers in the Senate gallery last winter, aud, altogether, her caeer bos been a 'ittle notorious. General Sher man accompanied her In her recent at tendance at court. Don Pedro. fc3S A WEEK in your town, and no copl. pJJ tal risked. Youcau give the business atrial without expunge.
