TOPEKA, KAN., July 14, 1870. Editor Chronicle : Perhaps, during the hour of leisure I have this morning, I may note down some things of interest to your readers, and it is extremely suggestive to dis course firstly of weather suggestive of light clothing, wilted collars, ice water and a passion for catching the glorious southern breezes. Yesterday was more than warm perhaps the warmest day of the season, with occa sional puffs of hot air, which in '00, during the long drouth, compelled the Kansans to retire in-doors and close the house, as the coolest place to be found. This hot air is a feature though a rare one of the atmosphere, which, as a rule, is moderated by the refreshing breezes from the south. This, with the cool nights, makes life enjoyable. All that is needed in Kansas to make sleep a refreshing luxury, is to secure a draft through the sleeping chamber from south to north. We have had two good thorough rains this week, which will ensure good so fall. to in (seal. and a CROPS. Where the conditions of thorough husbandry have been complied with. The wheat crop has been secured in fine order, and, as a whole, will be one of tne best ana the largest crop Kansas ever produced. The dry weatnenn the spring threatened sen ously the entire crop, but opiortune rains developed the berry wonder fully. The straw is short, aud there may be no such enormous yields from exceptional fields as has been nrevi- ously reported ; but a much larger breadth has been sown, and the gross amount will far surpass last year, and be of much better quality. Upland wheat will not, probably, average more than fifteen bushels per acre, but I have seen bottom lands that will make twenty-five and some over tntrty busnels. Oats are snort, and will not come up to the average of previous years. I think the average will not exceed twenty-five bushels the smallest crop Kansas ever made. There was, however, a large breadth sown, so that the supply will be abun dant. Late rains have made the corn crop a sure thing unless some unfore seen plague changes the very flatter ing prospects. I wrote to riends at home, under date of July 14, men tioning some fields which were higher than I could reach on horseback. The Haw valley, from Lawrence to this city, is almost one solid corn field, with very fine pospects. Pota toes are good and abundant, the new crop selling at one dollar per bushel. Gardens are flourlsDtng when prop erly cared for. The fruit crop i. e. the larger fruits will be light, owing to a hard frost, or rather freeze, just as the peach trees were in blossom. The smaller fruits, including grapes. in produce wen wnerever culti vated. Wild gooseberries and straw berries were very abundant. I can not say whether the wild raspberries and blackberries are plenty or not, having no opportunity to observe. Hay, as yet, promises only a moder ate vield, but will be of much better quality than last year, and will only require mowing over a few more acres of somebody else's land. All mat is unrenced is-, practically, com mon property, so that you not only have free range for stock, but hun dreds of acres of prairie to select your, meadow from. The grass is unusu ally nutritious this season, and stock of all kinds looking well.

Which litis ju.st leen organized un dur the direction of the United (ien eral Assembly of the Presbyterian Church. This Synod has already a history worthy of mention.

The southern front, only, is begun, and lacks as yet the facade of steps leading up to the main entrance, the accompanying col umns, and entab'ature above. The walls are built of Junction City mar ble, or white maznesian limestone, and present a very fine appearance. The interior is finished and furnished go id style.

The view of the city of lopeaaanu surrounuing country are very tine from the capitol. The citv lacks compactness, as a matter of course, and many things look new and crude. A vein of coal five feet thick has recently been discovered within six miles of the city. Topeka has about the same population as Warren, aud far less wealth; but I think her capitalists will not lag in hesitating footsteps of her Ohio 1n developing the mine of wealth, and procuring cheap trans portation to the city.

From the Eufala (Ala.) News. Mk. Editor: Last Saturday morn iiiff I was the witness of such a scene as I pray Uod I may never see again. I beheld a combat between a young man and a rattlesnake, in which the former was bitten and died in ten minutes thereafter. The particulars of the terrible alhiir are as follows : On Friday last a young man named Gruynor asked me to sjiend the night with him and go coon hunting the next morning, to which request I readily assented. We started out about three o'clock, A. M., and near day the dogs oeiied on a trail iu the swamp of Rear creek. Just after sunrise the deep baying of the dogs informed us that the game had taken a tree. We proceeded to make our way through the bogs and tangled brush and vines iu ihe direction of ,I,a .

" Well, S ." he coolly remarked. i am going to Kill that snake am going to kill that snake : it nwuiu w a uiuy iu leave sucu a hub fL.ow here ,4 here While Graynor was speaking, I caught a glimpse of the snak e, which, . ,.eariv oa r call iutlire anneared to , .

It ain't everv day a fellow meel3 with aucb ftfine, lar ge snake as this, nml it wo,t do joeeliim." He had picked up a small stick about a yard long, and. while speak an ing, was drawing back the bushes from above the snake so as to get a sight of him. He threw his foot around over the bu lies, and tramped them down in such a manner that the monster was fairly exposed to view ; but just as he did so, and before he had time to strike, the snake made a sudden spring at him, and I turned away my face in horror. The next instant Graynor exclaimed, " I've got him, by George !" I turned to look, and with his right hand he was grasping the snake by the neck, in such a manner that he could not bite, while the monster was gnashing his teeth most furiously, and twisting and writhing his huge folds around G.'s arms. All of a sud den, In some unaccountable manner. the snake freed his head, and quick as ltgnining riiungea nis ueauiy lanirs into ri8l,t cheek; when, drop- IUS crouuu, no giuru a paces anil again coiled himself up, is keeping his head erect and ringing , his fearful rattles. G. turned deadly pale, paused a moment, and then with a little stick advanced toward the snake. As he did so the snake made a spring nt him, but G. struck him with a stick and knocked him back. A second time the snake sprang at him, and he again knocked him off wltn the stlcK, but belore lie could strike a third blow, the snake had made another spring and inflicted another wound in Grayor's arm. This time Graynor again managed to seize the monster by the n.'ck, and dropping the stick, he drew forth his knife with one hand, opened it with his teeth, and then deliberately cut on the snake s bead, lilood spurted from the trunk, and G. still grasping the suake, whose huge folds flapped and writhed around birr, turned toward me, staggered and fell.

Teli them good ," and his features became frightfully con torted, his eyes rolled over as if starting from their sockets, and his biacK, swollen tongue protruded from his mouth.

On the wedding day he had his doubts as to whether his bride was good for anything, (ob tie auch was nntz ware,) and when the ceremony was over, handed thn nsjt- tor, instead of the expected five-tlol- I lar note, a letter. Somewtiat to his astonishment, and greatly to his dis gust, the minister found enclosed a " 'levenpenny bit" and the Infor mation, " Horn's gut geht, komm ich nachstc Jahr wiedcr." (Signed) Henn. (If all goes well, I'll return next year.) Time went on. Other more productive weddings had con soled the pastor, when one afternoon, just twelve months afterward, day for day, a wagon drove up to his door, the driver set down a barrel of flour, handed in a letter and departed. The minister rolled the barrel into the entry, took the letter to the light and opened it. Out fell a bright S-oO gold piece. Written in the purest Pennsylvania German, he read: " Leiber ffarrer !

The rlritition la rrfW-t and is estimated to weigh about ten tons.

THE NEEDLE GUN. A writer in the Chicago Tribune gives this description of Uie Prussian needle gun, which will probably play an important part in the coming bat tles in Europe: 1. The range of the needle gun is irom i,"j to i,j yaws The movements of loading are i executed with the right hand, as fol- lows: An upward stroke with the'. of the right band against the I chamber knob opens the breech, the I eart-idge is inserted Into the cavity of barrel, a push forward and a down- ward stroke of the chamber knob with l right hand clo-se the breach, and another push on the needle chamber (with its spiral spring) completes the loading, and the rille is ready for "Fire." During the movement the gun is held with the left hand at a "ready." 3. The gun is never loaded or reload ed while at "aim" simply because it impossible to do so. 4. The powder is not ignited at the rear end of tb cartridge, but next to the ball, where the igniting matter is placed in a kind of socket of papier mache; and this is what gives more power to the ball, the powder burning Irom the front to the rear. o. The cartridge is madeup ball in front, ball socket with igniting mat ter, powder. The shape of the ball resembles the shape of a cucumber, and is called long lead (lamj blei). 6. The recoil of the gun is only felt when it becomes very much heated, and the air chamber filled with Uie refuse of powder. When clean no re coil is felt at all. 7. In case the needle shi.uld break bend or otherwise become useless new one can be inserted in less than five seconds. Each soldier carries an extra supply of about six needles. It is not so much the superiority of the needle gun over other breech-loaders which has secured and In all probability will in the present strug gle secure, success to the Prussian army, as it is the thorough education each individual soldier and his per fect familiarity with his weapon. The needle gun was first used in Pruseia in 1846 and 149, in Baden and Schleswig, and not having been deem- enecuve witnouc an entire cnange tactics, and especially of skirmii Inatmntinn u.a .

An author, writing on Madrid, ays: " lla;i tres iws de invicrno u mt.ve de injferno" There are three montnsor winter and nine of hell e anee tust oe mane lor exaggeration. I I This, however, is Spanish, and, lik. 1 1111 tua i Spanish, due allowano must, however, say a few words about the heat of Madrid in summer. The sun's glare is truly African : at mid day the sky, without the smallest speck of cloud, is the color of molten lead. The ground has a dusty trrav i appearance, and interspersed, as it is, ' with an abundance of mica, glitters as if it were scattered with brilliants. In movinz about in the day tira if von wish to avoid the sun's burning rays, you must follow the very scanty shade afforded by projecting balconies and porticoes. The pavement literally burns, so that if you should accident ally drop your matches or fusees they ignite. Those who have to make visits and do not sport kids must ap ply their hankerchiefs to the knocker and bellpulls, or else burn their fing ers. Compared with the heat of Madrid in the early part of the after noon that thrown out by a baker's oven is almost refreshing ; for at that time of the day a shower of fire ap pears to be continually falling from the leaden dome or vault of heaven. The ground you walk on cracks like overbuked earthernware, while the grassiioppers, without any grass to hop on, grate their corslets with the utmost vivacity. If a little air should reach you it comes as if from a blast furnace. When the streets are water ed a mist rises from the ground like that at Niagara Falls. Shops are closed, and for a while business is at a standstill. The good folks of Madrid seek the innermost and coolest chambers to take their ttefta, and your correspon dent, acting on the old lady's advice. When vou go to Turkey do as the Turkeys do," takes his tiesta also, finding it extremely lonely to be awake while all are wrapped in sleep. The Manzanares, that in spring and autumn rushes down from the Cua darrama Mountains with the impe tus and fury of a cataract, carrying all before it, now winds its way through its sandy bed in tiny rivulet proportion and goes singing along like a babbling brook. The madrile nos dig pits on its margin and coax the cooling waters into them to refresh their parched skins. THE EXPLOSIVE BULLET. A Fearful Instrument of Warfare. The last and most destructive of the death-dealing projectiles the ex plosive bullet, designed by Perfuiset and executed by a French artisan in the firearms factory of Devisme is described iu the la."t number of the Army and ay Journal. Exter palm nally quite similar to the original Minie, a cylindric - ccrnical mata of lead, it is discovered, by an unscrew the ing of its' length, about midway, to be internally a magazine of ful the minute. The explosive compound dynamite power, condensed powder. or whatever it may be has an ex plosive force six times that of gun powder. Experiments which have been made under the patronage of the Russian, Prussian and Austrian governments, aud last by our own War Department, demonstrate not only Its effectiveness, but the singular properties its inveutor has given to it. "Being given the distance of the target, its density, the quantity of charge in the gun and the same of the ingredients constituting the projectile," he has established a most exact relation, by calculation, between the force necessary to ex plode the projectile and in its pene tration before subjection to this pres sure. Thus the magazine can be so constituted that the passage of the bullet through a sheet of paper will explode it, or so that the severe impact of iron or hard wood is needed for such a result. It is comforting to be assured that " a ball which would not explode in the body of a soldier or of a horse, if not at a very lim ited distance, would explode in the more resisting body or an ammunt tion wagon." The Influence of Woman. Thackeray says it is better for you to pass an evening once or twice a though, the conversation is rather ' slow, and you know the girl's songs by heart, than in a club, tavern or the pit of a theatre. All the amusements of youth to which virtuous woman are not admited, rely on it, are delete- avoid femaIe , t have dull percep- - cions, or gross tastes, ana revolt against, what is pure.

JENKINS GOES TO A PIC-NIC. Happened, and What he Thinks About it. - Maria Ann recently determined to go to a pic-nic. ,, , , Maria Ann U my wife unfortu-. nately. She had planned to go it alone, so far as I was concerned, on that pic-nie excursion; but when 1 heard about it, I determined to assist. She pretended she was very K1--",; but I don't believe she waa. "It will do you good to get away from your work a day, poor fellow," she said, " and we shall ao much enjoy a cool morning ride on the cars, and dinner in the woods." On the morning of that memorable day Maria Ann got np at five o'clock. About three minutes later she dis turbed my slumbers, and told me to come out to breakfast. I told her I wasn't hungry. But it didn't make a bit of dilierence, I had to get up. The sun was up; I had no idea the sun began business so early in the morning, but there he was. " Now" said Maria Ann, " we must fly around, for the cars start at half past six. Eat all the breakfast you can, for you won't get anything more before noon." I could not eat anything at that time in the morning, and it was just as well I could not. for I had all I could do. There' was ice to be pounded to go around the pail of ice cream, ana tne sandwiches to be cut, and I thought I should never get the legs of the chicken fixed so that I could put the cover on the big basket. Maria Ann flew around and piled up groceries for me to pack, and gave directions to the girt about taking care of the house, and was putting on her new dress all at once. There is a great doal of energy in that woman ' perhat s a trifle too much. At twenty minutes past six I stood on the front steps with a basket on one arm and Maria Ann's waterproof on the other, and a pail in each hand, and a bottle of vinegar in my coat skirt pocket. There waa a camp chair on me somewhere, too, but I forget just now. " Now," said Maria Ann, " we must run, or we shall not catch the cars." " Maria," said I, " that is a reasona ble idea. How do you suppose I can run with all this freight?" " You must, you brute. You al ways try to tease me. If you don't want a scene on the streets, you will start, too." So I ran. I had one comfort, at least. Maria Ann fell down and broke her parasol. She called me a brute again because I laughed. Maria drove me all the way to the depot on a brisk trot, and we got on tha cars ; but neither of us could get a seat, aud I could not find any place where I could set the things uown, so i stood mere ana held mem. Maria," said I, in winning ac cents, " how is this for a cool morn ing ride?" Said she, "You are brute, Jen kins." Said I, ' My love, you have made that remark before." I kept my courage up, yet I knew there would be an hour of wrath when we got home. While we were getting oat of the cars the bottle in my pocket got broke, and conse quently I had one boot half full of vinegar all day. That kept me pretty quiet, and Maria Ann ran olT with a big-whiskered music teacher, and lost her fan, and got her feet wet, and tore her dress, and enjoyed herself much after the fashion of pic-nic goers. I thought it would never come dinner time, and Maria called me a pig, be cause I wanted to open our basket before the rest of the baskets were open. At last dinner time came the "nice dinner in the. woods," you know. Over three thousand little red ants had got into our dinner, and they were worse to pick out than rish bones. The ice cream bad melted, and there was no vinegar for the cold meat, except what was in my boot, and of course that was of no imme diate use. The teacher spilled a cup of hot coffee on Maria's head, and pulled all the frizzles out trying to wipe off the coffee with his hand kerchief. Then I sat on a piece of raspberry pie, and spoiled my white pants, and concluded I didn't want any more. I had to stand up against a tree the rest of the afternoon. The arlorded considerable variety. compared to every-day life, but there were so many little drawbacks that I did not enjoy it so much as I might have done. NORTHERN OHIO FAIR.
