When the Minister of Foreign A11 airs was asked in the Cortes for a statement of what really happened, he declared that for the honor of the Chamber of the Council of tlie Republic lie was obliged to refrain from mentioning all that happened. Ac cording to his account, the insurrection was got up by the Interuationlists and commenced in a strike, or a series of strikes. The workmen demanded a large rise in their wages, ns much as fifty per cent., and when it was refused, they left their work and assumed a very threaten ing attitude, interfering everywhere with work and spreading an alarm among the peaceful inhabitants, especially those be longing to the well-to-do classes, and seek ing the resignation of the Town Council and the substitution of a Council of their own nomination.

The little garri son was sooti overpowered the assailants burst in, and then followed a scene which the Minister declared it impossible for him to describe. The defenders of the Town Mali, after being subjected to other horrible instills and injuries, wcrfl slrip- naked and held up from the balcony, n full view of the howling mob below. Their names were called out one by one, and the mob was asked whether it would have them dead or alive. According to the answer, either their heads were cut oft' and their mutilated bodies thrown down from the balcony, or they were thrown down still alive, the mob below trying to catch them, as they fell, on bayonets and pikes,and everybody then rushed to assist in dispatching what remnants of life were left or, if too late for this, to further niaugle and disfigure the breathless bodies.

When welcomed to Paris he replied: "Here I see tlie sun again, and am re minded of my native country." This lling at London was positively cruel. England did her utmost for the royal Persian. True, she could not supply htm with sun shine, but she gave him an immeasurable quantity of gas. —The London Times of a recent date says Mrs. ('line, the authoress, was writing iu her boudoir on the evening of the pre ceding day, when a spark flew from the lire and ignited her dress. Before assist ance could arrive, the unfortunate lady, who for years had been a confirmed in valid, was burned most terribly. She died on the following raorping. —A wife of Bath. England, recently distinguished herself bv her demonstra tions of grief for the acath of her hus band. She tore the shroud from the corpse and triod to pour rum down its throat She delayed the funeral procession by sit ting on the colHn and refusing to have it removed. The united strength of three men was necessary to keep her from jumping into the grave after the coffin. —The English official who told Mrs. Fawcett that ladies were not permitted in the free public reading-room found that he had waked up the wrong woman. She appealed to the authorities, and extracted an official declaration that there was no legal authority for excluding women and she raised such a breeze of discussion that gYery library in London has since been open as freely to women as to men. —Near Lorient, France, a father aged seventy has been sentenced to ten years' transportation for barbarity toward his son, aged thirty-four, who had a mania for switching off the heads of flowers. His father sent for a blacksmith, ordered a chain to be made, which he riveted round his son, and then to the wall of a pig-sty. For three years the unfortunate thus lived his bed was a heap of manure, and his only companion a pig. —The Paris papers are amusing their readers with the Shah of Persia. His Persian Majesty travels with 30,000 kilo I grammes of luggage, not including his i horses, one of which, tbe royal charger, has his tail dyed red! The Shah makes presents of jewelry and precious stones to all the princesses he comes across. The Queen of England is to receive a necklace of brilliants worth half a million. Ac cording to the Koran, he is forbidden to tread anv other soil than that trodden by Mussulmen.

She supplies the Garden of Acclimatization in Paris with food for the pheasants, which food consists entirely of ants' eggs.

These generally last three or four days, during which she sleeps on the field of action, in order to watch the insects at dawn, and to find her way to their treas ures. She is almost devoured by the ants, an inconvenience of which she takes little notice, but at the end of her harvest-time, which lasts from the month of June to the end of September, her whole body is in a truly pitiable condition. Her servicA are, of course, highly valued, for, as there is at present no competition in this line of industry, it would be difficult to supply her place. —Dr. T. 8. Bell, of Louisville, Ky., has given to the public, through the Courier Journal, several instructive articles on the origin, nature and distribution of the cliol era, in which particular attention is called to the fact that tbe disease generally at tacks persons in the night time or early in the morning. He regards cholera as ma larial in its origin. In the Courier-,!mir nnl of a recent date he says: "But the main force of my statement is untouched. It is an important one. I repeat it. No case of cholera has ever yet occurred, ex cept as the result of sleeping ut night where the cause is, and no amount of ex posure in Ihe day-time, without the sleep at night in the locality, ever |rave the dis ease. No mere sojourner during the past 800 years has ever slept at night in the malarious season, in the Pontine marshes (near Home) without dying. The Abruzzi mountaineers, who put iniiuch crops as are raised there, sleen in day-time, but never at night. All testimony that litis spoken on this point in reference to yellow fever testifies that no amount of exposure in day time is perilous, but that the only danger is in sleeping in the locality at night." —The rural editor of the £iOuis Democrat has discovered an insect that will destroy the potato-bug. The new bug bores into the potato and strategically lays in wait for the other bug. The dis coverer's attention has been directed to this, as the potato still suffers, but he has yet made no response. He is supposed to be chasing after another bug that will de stroy the bug that destroys the potato bug. BOOK AOEN^ can overcome the obstacle of hard times on the new and liberal system adopted by E.
