Dtmisa the hot weather if one knows bow many church steeples there are in a place it is easy to compute the number of inhabitants, as there are always so many people per-tplre. The Cincinnati Commercial has repu diated Greeley and come out for Grant a being the only Republican in the field since the Philosopher formerly ac cepted the Democratic leadership. As Item forProbibItioni3t.

One of them Mr. I'odgaoo, Astronomer-Royal is on trial with closed doors, charged with hot pre venting late disastrous cyclone. To those people wh delight In aphor. Urns the following is commended as being the onlclal expression of an English Justice. . Whatever may be the curses of great cltie, there can be no doubt that inr "villages and small towns, the greatest .euree of human society Is that of gossip. TaGen'eseo (111.)1 Republic says, on authority which It vouches for as reli able, that the Swedish population of that State are, with hardly an exception, for Grant snd Wilson, sod that no per suasUhfS "of "appliances can turn them from their purpose to vote the straight Republican ticket., A cotemporary referring, to the in flicdoir of Corporal Pnnlshment,' re marks that "the flogging of an incorrig- ablewltU a small birch , will certaluly break no boucs and may do a great deal of rood " A doubt naturally arises if a boy is "incorrlgable" how can this or any other sort of correction do any good. Ax the" recent Greeley-Brown ratifica tion meeting held In this place, William Hiedley, of Cleveland, said in his speech that file had always taken everything that had been prepared for bis party by Democratic doctors, from quinine to rhubarb, but that he lound Horace Greeley the bitterest pill he had ever been called upon to swallow." Yieoe lieved him. At Us last commencement the authori ties of Harvard College, honored, President Grant, who was present at the exercises, with the degree of L L. . Inasmuch as Mr. Grant's attainments, tasks and habits are so notoriously the reverse of scholarly It might not be amiss to question whether the exhibition was one of "complimentary flunkey Ism," or a sycophantish offering made In the hope of receiving some substantial bene fits in return. ; Dr. Mary Walker was made very much enraged on Wednesday because tht United States Commissioners of Patents would hot permit her to place the mili tary eoatume she accoutred beTSclx in during the war in the glass cabinet con taining the garments of Washington and Lincoln. ' The clothes were labeled, "Worn by Mrs. Dr. Mary Walker dur ing the war," and as an historic relic for the-inspection of future generations would have been invaluable. Diu Bridges,' the English Poaltivlst, lately delivered a lecture on women, in which (speaking of the un desirability of letting the fair sex meddle with politics) he remarked that it Is a waste of mate rial to use the energies of women In the rough, .'coarse work suitable for men. It might be compared to taking the beau tiful Elgin marbles from the British Museum and using them to build houses, when there is plenty of rough material for that' purpose. Will Susan B. An thony feet delicately flattered by this pretty compliment, or will she get ln- oi otcv 1 nnriiiMi mine?" Lakdkd proprietors in Germany have recently been holding meetings at which means were discussed of ameliorating the condition of the laboring classes con nected with the soil. The NorddeuUche Alige ZeUung thinks that if the ooudltion of these-classecan be bettered thus, the proprietors will not only have done service to the laborers, but to themselves and society geuerally, by meeting In the best possible way the propaganda of so cialist and communest agitators among the inhabitants of the rural districts. At these meetings the Government of Prussia and the two Mecklenbnrgs have been asked to facilitate the acquisition of small lota of land b the laborers. Tra totally abstemious Good Tem plars of Wisconsin have been puzzled to decide whether the manufacture of cider by members of their , order be quite : Compatible with the temper ance tenets' which they are pledg ed to promulgate. As is not unusual where principle, and profit pull differ ent ways, a - compromise was ultimate ly effected in favor of profit, in the shape of a resolution that members "may make cider, without knowledge of the purpose for which, it la to be used." For all they are bound to know to the con trary, their product may be purchased only for the purpose of beiug converted into vinegar, which fluid Is not likely to produce Injurious results unless drank to excess. The only question is whether the same argumeut would not apply to cider itself, or even to wine or whisky none of whieb are harmful if excess be avoided. The diamond field3 of South Africa have just experienced a sensation, not of the most pleasing sort. It appears that the postmaster of De Berrs, New Rush, the richest spot In the diamond district, after making up his mail on the Otbof May, left -the bag near a window, and stepped out for a moment or two. When he returned he found that some one had quietly raised the window and walked off with the bag. The plunder Is said to have amounted to 80,000 or 100,000 (between $400,000 and 1500,000.) The largest part of this enormous sum was the value of six pounds of diamonds which were on their way to Cape Town. This postal robbery excels any ever ex perienced In that part of Africa, and rivals those ot more; civilized portions of the globe. The pious opponents ot capi tal punishment may well pray that the robber may not be caught, for if he Is his fate Is sealed Judge Lynch pro nouncing the sentence. A cofeBESPOKDKST of the Washington Suitday Morning Chronicle, writing to that paper, from Edinburg, Scotland, ays: ''It ia announced here that the daughter of President Grant who is now visiting Europe is about to be married to a well-known Scottish Karl of ancient family and great wealth," thus securing a continuation of the present friendly relations between the two coun tries by means fo a "Scotch-American alliance." The writer very carelessly neglects to state what reasons the Scotch people have for believing that a mar riage with Miss Nellie Grant would pro mote good feeling between their coun try and the United States, any more than would that of MUs Jones or Miss Smith, and leaves the reader in a most unpleasant state of uncertainty as to the reliability of the information. But the mere existence of the idea is an evidence of such change in the views of other na tions with regard to our government as to be worthy the attention of those ad ministration pxpers which laugh at the idea of "the dangers of centralization," and declare them nothing but the bug bears of a "Liberal" imagination. In a month from this time, when the huzzaing and fire-crackering and con gratulatory speech-making shall have subsided, there will be a much better opportunity for observation and political propheaving than at the present. Just uow there 'Is too much buncombe and too little positive information on either side for any satisfactory decision to be arrived at. On this account we should simply advise everybody to disbelieve the partisan newspapers and wait until the Baltimoreau rebound has settled into quiescence. One will tiien be much better able to decide whether there is really that "great torrent of a popular uprising" which is to sweep Grant and Corruption out and Greeley aud Purity in, or whether it is simply a very bitter personal contest. It is true that there are a great many Greeley clubs being formed but it is equally true that there are fully as many Grant clubs being organized and while it is foolish to assert that the Philosopher will receive no support it is finite as idle for the Liberals to attempt to show that such enthusiasm exist as will bear all before it. Undoubtedly there was originally a strong feeling of popular sympathy with the inovement that culminated in the Cincinnati Convention. Many people honestly believed that President Grant has made too many mistakes If nothing worse to be a At candidate for re-election. Still others saw corruption en trenched in many places in the Republi can rauks and possessing a strong in fluence over the party organization. Both looked to the new party for relief and espoused its cause as the exponent of Reform. But the Cincinnati conven tion proved to be as perfectly under the control of wirepullers and professional politicians as the most dishonest gather ing that had ever been held. The insin cerity of the leaders of the Reform party was so conclusively demonstrated by the men whom they placed at their head that those who had honestly gone Into the movement began to feel the shame of failure and the disappointment of defeat. The wholesome lessons which had been demanded and expected on the subjects of revenue reform, civil service reform, amnesty, the purity of the ju diciary, executive encroachments and all the other abnses which were enumer ated in the original call, were not forth coming and the Liberal cause began to lose in breadth and dignity. Of those who fostered the move in the begin ning, many returned to the Republican ranks as finding there, if not all, at least more that they desired, than they could among the Liberals, and from that moment the contest as sumed the simple proportions of a po litical bargain and sale without being elevated by a single one of the princi ples that had originally been the motive power with the many. As it now is neither the Cincinnati nor the Philadelphia platforms repre sent much beyond aperies of glittering generalities, and without any real vital izing issues embodied in them the con test is narrowed down to a personal fight which is all the more bitter from this lack of other Ingredients. For that reason, as we said before, it is all the more difficult at the present time to Judge correctly of the future until the imme diate fog of the contest shall have so far subsided as to allow the real strength of the opposing candidates to Sir Exchanges Harper's Weekly and Harper's Bazar have neither of them anything of especial interest in the numbers for the current week, although the latter has an unus ual ataUUIlb Oi LIIUC UlSbCriUllTf IWUU things wuicu they can patterns, and may on that account possess some more than ordinary interest for the fem.'ile portion of its readers. , f .. ,;'..,,, Godey for August comes to band with its pages replete with articles and illus trations fully up to the average.

There are also three sterling articles by well-known writers on the vital question Prof. Comfort's "Should the Study of the Modern precede that of the Ancient Languages ?" Amasa Wal ker's "Labor and Capital in Manufac tures," and Charles Dudley Warner's "What is your Culture to Me?" Among the illustrated articles are an interesting account on "The Graphic Ara," by Ben eon J. Lossing, and "The Island of Cor fu," by Charles K. Tuckerman late Uni ted States Minister to Greece. Hans Christian Anderson tells the suggestive story of "The Gardener and the Manor" and Miss Aman relates in a very fresh and striking way that of "Hebe's Jumli les." There is poetry by Louise Chand ler, Moulton,1 Mary J. Serrano and Charles S, Gage. Dr. Holland writes about the recent strikes, and discusses "The Wine Question in Society," and "Novel Reading."

Informally renominatinu- Greeley and Brown, and re-adopting the Cincinnati platsorm, departs slightly from the strict Missouri policy, but a policy which has reclevea so many in dorsements of its substantial points, and achieved so many successes, can well aflord to acquiesce in their trifling de. parture from its strict letter. The De mocracy will give the ticket the full bennet of three million undivldde non- nlar votes, and the electoral vote of the fourteen adraittebly Democratic States, and it the liberals shall with the aid of the Democryay, do no more than effect a change of five per cent in the popular vote of a few othar States, already half estranged irom me administration, the campaign will end in a triumpu. The Timet says : That the Convention decided to indorse the Cincinnati ticket by a nomination is unquestionably the wiser course. It settles all doubt as to the full Democratic acceptance of the ticket, and pledges the party to its sup port. It will serve more than anything else, while retaining entire nnity of the parti' north and west, to bring the south up to the cause in almost solid phalanx. To argue that the nomination of Greeley by the Democratic Convention will af lentato fastidious Republicans from his support Is to argue that the Republi cans who brought him out as a candidate do not want him elected. Whatever course, is best calculated to unite the conservative vote of the country at the election is the course that all of Gree ley's friends will most heartily approve and that the convention adopted just that course, of all others the most judi cious, we cannot entertain a doubt." The Democrat says: "Greeley Is now iu form as well as in fact the caudldate of the regular Democratic organization and by accepting the Baltimore nomination he will not only sever bis connection with the party w ith which lie had hith erto acted, but he deliberately repels the support ot that small body ot well mean ing but misguided Republicans whom ne nau endeavored tonoodwinK aud leau blindfolded into the Democratic camp. We are neither surprised nor disapointed at the result, for in all political calcula tions it is quite safe to assume that the leaders or the .Democratic party will pursue the course most likely to secure tneir del eat. It would indicate a rever sal of the rules of human conduct to find prudence and sagacity in a class of men whose councils have placed their party In the attitude of opposition to every measure that had been proposed during the last twelve years preservation of the Union establishment ot national credit and extention of ; civil . and , political rights."; ILLINOIS.

The Express calls it a farce, a contempt for common sense. Hereafter, it says, murder is no crime, but a little trial, a disagreement at fits and finally an acquittal. The Cmnuter cial blames the law, which allows no. in termediate verdict between murder in the first degree and manslaughter iin the first degree The Post says we are near ing. If we have not already reached, that point where the taking of lite ts not to be considered mnrder except in the case of vulgar burglars, who have- tresDaased on the rights of property, and sacrificed life to reach it. The following particu lars of the proceedings of the jury 'are given : On Saturday evening, when they first retired to deliberate, a ballot was taken, which resulted in seven for murder in the first degree, throe for ac quittal, and two for manslaughter In the the third degree. The names of the seven for murder are Clever Homhiirpei-, Bennett Williams, X. M." Cornish, Hy mn Stone, John K. F. Band, Peter E. Hopkins and M. A. Lcfierts, The juror for acquittal were Roderick Hoga'n, M. H. Thompson and John Tucker, anil the two for manslaughter were Theodore Klamme and Henry C. Whittle. This state of affairs remained until the jurv came into court and got Colonel Visk's clothes. The clothes were all tried on one of the jurors, and thev arrived at the conclusion that Fisk had both arms en veloped in his military capo at the time l Stokes fired, and consequently that the theory of Fisk --drawing a pistol was n humbug. This lntluenced the three for acquittal to veer round for manslaughter in the third degree. The medical Testi mony was thrown out altogether, all be lieviugthe wound mortal from the first. ' The question of insanity was barely re ferred to. There was a long discussion as to premeditation. All the jurors were i of the opinion that Stokes never went to the jrraii'l Central Hotel with the pre meditated ilesiiru of meeting and killing isk. The seven juror? who were for murder believed -that when Stokes met Fisk on the stairs in a moment lie formed in his mind the design of killing Fisk, and that this second was sufficient time for premeditation. The live jurors stoutly maintained that Stokes pulled hi pistol in the heat of passion, being scared to Irenzy by the sight ot risk, and that his crime was only manslaughter in the third degree. The debate tin this point became quite excited, and some harsh words were used on boih sities. l line. and again a poll was taken, hut all to no purpose. Firm to their opinions they all remained, and at last fell asleep, but woke up in the same stare of mind. Fin nally they gave up the dispute, seeig there was no hopes of altering their opinion. - , ; franc-. Thiers entertained General Sherman and party at dinner.
