THE LAWYERS AND JUDGES OF ENGLAND. BY HENRY DAY, ESQ. The profession and practice of the law in England and Scotland, is di vided between eoliciters and barris ters. The solicitor is employed by the plaintiff or defendant." He pre pares all the pleadings and papers and evidence in every suit, uecess-ary for a trial. He does all chamber business; such as investigating titles to real estate, drawing wills, deeds, and ail kinds of law papers. He is an officer of court, admitted after an examina tion, to practice In court, and is sworn in before open court, tie has no robes, and. while solicitor, cannot act as barrister. He cannot open his mouth in court. Some solicitors in London employ over one hundred clerks, i be barns ter is employed by the solicitor to present bn case to the court, and to try and argue causes before the court. He has no partner antr generally nut one clerk. He wears a gown and wig while in court. He can never act as solicitor or do any of tbe solicitor's business; if he does, be loses caste at once. He cannot consult with the plaintiff, defendant, or witness. There is no act of Parliament prescribing Uie qualifications of a barrister. He becomes a barrister from immemorial customs in this way: Via inina tiin-iaalf tn nn nf IHa frill t Inns of Couit in London, and after he has been connected with tbe same for a specified time, the Benchers of the Inn call him to the bar : that is. they callout his name on a certain day uft-r .tit.nar anri wiarA him ,i lo.t to the bar. The Benchers then give the student a certificate that he is nolloH tn tt.o liar nnr) with this in hit h.n,i .n,i with . rrwn and wiv nn he presents himself to the court atd I inxrnrn in and hemimes a barrister, Rut thorn is no at-t of Parliament for all this nlvciibrm. Heretofore, no examination of a student was required to obtain a certificate Irom tne bench- ers. The onlv requisite being tnatne has been present at a certain number of dinners during a year, at the Inns of Court. If he was a good eater, he was likely to make a good lawyer; sucn was the presumption Tbe Bencners are aiming at a more thorough legal training of tne candi dates for tne bar. In America there is much more knowledge of tbe law required in the candidates for tbe bar, than in H.tig' land; and it is my judgment that the lawyers of America, as a Dooy, are better educated in their profession tnan the barristers of insland, as body. The American lawyer must have bad three years study lu tne law and pass a rigid examination, before lie can be admitted to practice. 1 n n his practice combines that or tbe En isb solicitor and barrister. He draws bis own papers, examines bis own witnesses, prepares his own case, and consequently he better uuderetaiui aud is belter able to try bis case. The English barrister knows nothing of or 111s case. sel, the ber lor i.l-health. ol has It bis client, his witnesses. pTrvnt from nanra rtllt into his hand in court. English lawyers see their disadvantage, aud I think they are at --radnallv to abolish the t'Utuction between bairister and so licitor. In ancient times tbe barris ter was supposed to serve his clients Wltnout any cuarge, dui mis remar kable disinterestedness did not pie vent him from receiving a present from the client, and for this purpose there was a small pocket cn the bacK of his robe or toga, into which this present was ouietly slipped by the admirinc client. To this day, no bar rioter in Euglaud can recover at law any charvts for his services: and therefore, as is very proper, he re ceives bis fee in advance, when the papers on which he is to act are put into his hands: but even now, so strong is the power of an old custom thai iu his gown will always le seen the back the little pocket, re mnd nig the clients generally, that there a way in wmch a lawyer suisinter eted service can be rewarded, even while he speaketh. There are four Inns of Court in Loudon, which have the sole atitbori of calling men to the bar. Tbe In tijr Tern uie. the Middle Temple, Liu coin's Inn. and Gray's Ian. To oue the be the is real will that son ber he high ple vice age. that en these luns. all the barristers of ruie, England belong. Tbe Jnn is a corpo- of ration cousistinit of barristers. Their and Trustees, who hold legal title to their nil property and manage their affairs, aud who are elected from time to time, are called Beuchers. A descrip tion of one of these Inns will describe the whole : Tbe loner Temple is a very ancient corporation, supposed to be tbe legal successor to the rights, privileges aud rooerty of tbe Knights Templars in roudou. They are a corporation with large tract of land of about thirty acres, between Fleet street and the Thames, the heart of London; on which are erected numerous buildings like our modern college buildings, aud divided like them iuto chambers. These rooms are rented only to the barristers belonging to tbe Inn. The revenues from them amounts to about in the ble The uixu of same is afveutv ihnuuaiid rwiiinda annuailv. ject, r . . y . I tug. sion with He was to years man They haveiu their grounds oneoi tbe nueat churches in Loudon; also a magnificent law library, an immense diuiug hall aud kitchen. There is an annual tax laid on each membei. The Inns are very.much like a mod club. Tbe Benchers are tbe Di rectors. The funds are disposed of in keeping up tbe library, which is pKibably the finest law library in the wor d; in supporting the church cho service; aud in paying for fine din ners, which are daily provided in its immense halls. The dinners provi ded for the Benchers, always at a separate (able, are proverbi.tl. The present Lord Chancellor has express ed a determination to inquire iuto the manner in which the immense reve nues of the Inns are expended. Evi dently biutinir that too much eat i up and too much wine do not nectssariiy maa.e gooa law or gooa lawyers. - In The Benchers of the different Inns 1 j: . l . . 1 . are greatly uis-yuhiru at tue prospect of havinir their immemorial rivlits and pmetices interfered with. The pmfeion of the law in Knelund elves an entree to all good society and pre ferment in jiolilics aud literature. Thousands join the Inns and become barristers who never intended to prac tice lnw, and really have no knowledge of law. Having once become members of the Inn, they occupy the same cham bers generally alJ "their lives, and if they are bachelors tha chambers are their home. Dr. Bamuel Johnson, Goldsmith, Thackeray .and other lite rary nien, had their chamber.-, at the Inner Temple, where most of their great works were written, and where frost of their lives were Epent. The judges and barristers wear, while in court, a very unbecoming wig made of white horse-hair, with three rows of curls around it and two pig.tails hanging down the back. The regard ot the Briton for all that is ancient, induces them to hold on to these abominable wigs. But it certainly disfigures the man very much. The practical American is ul ways asking, when he sees nuch customs, cut bono? what pood? What's the use? The English lawyers are not as good aud ready speakers as the American law yers. They are constantly interrupted by the Jude, who often discusses the points of the ause with the counsel, and which makes a connected argu mem impossible to thecunsel. The judges in .England are always appointed from the barristers, and are regarded with great deference, and often with subservience, much more thau will be seen in American courts; and, indeed, a subservience to titles and authority is a thing which, every-1 where in Knglnnd, strikes au Ameii-1 can unpleasantly. lne court rooms or .London are miserable little dingy rooms, which a police justice in 5ew York would be williug to occupy. Ordinarily there are not seats enough in tbe whole room for the barristers, aud many of them are obliged to staud. No spectators can ordinarily find seats. The lawyers, even while seaking, are crowded into narrow peus with high backs, like the. pews in an old-fashioned church. The three foremost lawyers in Great Britain, and I may say, aside from Mr. Gladstone, the three most influ ential men are Lotd Chancellor Mel bourne, late Sir Rounriell Palmer, Lord Cairns, the Lord Chancellor of the last conservative administration; and the Lord Chief Justice Cockburn; (pronounced Cobum). Lord Chancellor Melbourne is about sixty years of ace, and were it not tor his wig, would beaniie-lookingJudie. He is tbe sou of a clergyman of the English Church. He is a very reli gious man, aud he does not scruple to let tne world Know it. i-ie is very High Cburcb, at least to the extent that lie has ucver been in a Presbyte rian chinch, and will not allow his family to go there. Sol was Inform ed by a friend of his family. Since bis elevation to tbe woolsack, his ten antry in the country were iuvited by him loan entertainment, on tbe occa sion of tbe consecration of a new church erected mainly by him. The speech be made to them might well have com- from the lips of a humble ana aevout i,nristian minister, lie 8P.Re ?f l.he vanity of earthly honors aua ea.,u tlJ.e highest ambition or any man should be to honor nisOod and do good to his fellow men. The best collection of sacred hymns in England !las ben compiled by Sir Rouudell Calmer. Before his elevation to the wool sack, he was the first equity lawyei at 'he bar, and hl3 income Was not l ss "inn nity tuousana dollars annually H' income as Liora L-Uancelior is twelve thousand pounds. He is a r"""""""" mn. viuwUr, nu 1"urlw " !"", " "cieu lPe OIDCe . "V" nancenor a long time since, out ne declined tue Honor, Fne "ignest, in most respects, in .ng lund, because be could nut approve of tbe bill for tbe disestablishment of the Irish Cburcb. But bis labors as Couu at the Geneva Conference, have afforded another opportunity for his advancement, and he lias accepted honor. Ue ha perhaps, more power than auy mau in England. He apuoints all the judges and all the great dignitaries of the Church; pre sides over tbe House of Lords, and is Supreme Judge in all the equity cases in the realm. England appoints very best men to wield such power. .Lord Hatherly, tbe Chancel just retired on account of ace and is also a very religious man, high tone and noble character.

A'ew York Observer. 1 to go All it, tell ENGLISH JUDGESHIPS. connection with, .tbe foregoing, the following facts are interesting:: Mr. Juslice Hannen, who has just been appointed to succeed Lord rVn znnce as Judge of tbe EnglUh Probate and Divorce Court, is the youngest judge on the bench. He never " took silk," as it is termed 1. c, was called within the inner bar as a Queen's counsel but was raised direct from being a stuit'gown barrister to a seat on the bench, lie win be the third judge appointed to the Court cf Pro bate and Divorce since its institution, in 1S6S. Tbe salary atfached to this office is the same as that or the ordinary judges- $25,000 a year with a retiring pension of $17,500 alter fifteen years' service. The position is difficult and arduous, but the temptation to take tbe post is that the judire of this court is an autocrat, and is always appoint ed a member of the Privy Council, aud has more patronage at his dispos al tlian all the rest of tbe judges put logetli-T. When the English probate system was remodeled, in IS-IS, the various ancient courts, both civil and ecclesiastical, for proving wills, were, at a stroke, superseded by the Court of Probate, and in their stead forty ' district registries" established over the country, at large towns where wills are proved. A new will must now be proved within the district in which the testator died, or at tbe prin cipal registry in London. The judge of thecotnt appoints all these regis trars, both in town and country, and in this way has patronage to the ex lent of about $350,000 a year. In former days the judges sold their patronage, antl the first Lord Ellen borough was offered $400,tt00 for the reversion of the place of clerk of the King's Bench. He declined this of fer, and gave the apKintment to his son, who died two years ago, having held the office worth 3o,000 a year about forty years. Thesto y is well known of how bis father beard of the vacancy when out riding on horse back, immediately dismounted, told his groom to hold the horse, and tak ing a pencil from bis pocket, wrote bis sou's appointment on a scrap of paper, the groom being witness, and the saddle serving as table. Then be mounted and rode comfortably home, secure of a splendid provision for bis son, even if he should himself be tli row 11 and killed on the spot. Nearly all of the great legal sine cures iu Ei. gland are now gone, but the gieatfst yet- remains in tbe shape of two offices wortli $60,000 a year, which have been 1 eld for aboutfifty years by an old clergyman who has nothing on earth to do in return save to sign hit nuine in receipt. This venerable ecclesiastic, to whom such an amuzing share of legal loaves and fishes have fallen, is a Mr. Tburlow, nephew of the celebrated Lord Chan cellor of (lie time, tbe school compan ion of Cowper. to whom there is such frequent allusion in that poet's letters, To leather tbe nest of bis familj was an otject which Tburlow never lost sight of. When be asked for ttie bish opr.c ot Durham, the great pecuniary prize of the Jiriiish bench of bishops, and then worth $160,000 a year, George tne Third said: "Any thing else, my lord ; but the bishopric of Durham has always been bestowed on gentle men of high family and position.-" " Then, bire,,' said Tburlow, " I ask it for tbe brother of the Lord High Chancellor of England." And the King had to give in. Sales of offices are now and long have been completely at an end, and the judicial bench is utterly free from all suspicion of complicity in such proceedings.

Appalling Catastrophes The Storm in Appalling Catastrophes The Storm in the Northwest-Setters swept into Oblivion-Cattle and Horses Destroyed Oblivion-Cattle and Horses Destroyed-Death and Disaster. Reports continue to come in from Mankain, Kew Ulm, St- James, and other points in tbe western part of the mate, as we'I as Irom w Ulnar, ivirk hoven, and other places on the North Pacific road, giving gloomy accounts of suffering and death by the late storm. From a gentleman who was ct Mankato during tbe storm, we learn that it was first beard of at She! don, then at Worthington, St. James and tbe different points of the Hiou City road, traveling at the rate of forty-eight miles an hour, or three-quar- teis of a mile a minute, sweeping over the prairie with relentless fury. A man came into Mankato from Madelia, on Friday night, and report ed that he saw oue sleigh witb three men and four women frozen to death It was also reported that six section hands on the Sioux City road, west of Munkato, bad shared the same fate. The-wood train on tbe Sioux City road, between Madelia and bt. James was out after wood, and while the men were loading the cars, the engin eer ran his engine down to St. James to taru around. After be got there he was unable to return, and the men had to walk into Madelia. All them save one got In, though more or less frozen. That one has uever been heard from, and was probably lost. A woman is rt ported to have frozen to death in ber house, being unable to cet out to get in wood. A team was lound lasteneu to the trestle-work no the Winona and Si. Peter road, the horses but just alive, being neaiiy buried in the snow. The man was found a few feet away, frozen suit. At Waseca, a man who lives on the outskirts' of the town, started to go bmeas the stxrm-came on, and has ut Dee 11 heard from. It is believed that many more than have yet been reported have perished along the Sioux City road. On he fatal Tuesday wlien the storm burst upon the settlements, the day opened unusually hue, and many of the set tlers bad started out for wood having to go from live to twenty miles. The stor.n coming on cut them oil', and it is feared that many of them have per- ht-d. Twenty-one deaths have tbus far been reported at jMSuaato.

The first discovery of the partf was made by a little girl, who calkd her moth er's attention to a shawl lying on tbe snow. This led to investigation, when the entire party of thirteen were re moved from their snowy tomb. A woman was found dead on Fri day, near Madelia, in her house.

In addition to these cases we are In receipt of still further news ; but time ana space compel us to close the sad and gloomy chapter. [Published by Request.] HOW ARE THE DEAD TO BE RAISED! We do not propound this question in relation to the bodies of dead men resting in the earth. The matter of their resurrection has already been established by tnt-Ir Creator, and due time they who are now dead shall come forth to li.'e. But our inquiry made in reference to living men who are dead in spirit. How these are to be raised does not appear; and wbetb er they can be, is far more than we can divine. We supposed they had been made alive by Christ ; tbey pro fessed to be so, and we verily thought it was so; and being made alive would give proof of this by a lively sympa iliv tor those who are pealed au killed all the dav long. We are dis apjioiuted, it is not so. Tell tne story of tbe wrongs and sufferings; show them the sulierers; point out to them as nearly as human torgue cau do. bow dark, deep aud terrible tins stream of sorrow is, aud tbey stare with tbe blauk indinerence of dead men What mortal man could have predict ed that the millions of God's professed children in our laud are dead in spir it, as events and conduct have proved V hat has killed them so I It certain ly is not tba religion aud spirit that Christ gives to men that has done this. Other powers and agencies are to be charged with this spiritual horn icide and suicide. W bat are tbey We will Dame some of them ; an among these we mention as tbe most damaging, that of political party ism wherein aud whereby crime is upheld and protected, by the aileuce and in dirfereuceof part as to tbe crimes com mitted, and of another part who com mit crimes. It is a well settled fact that no one person, nor number of persons associ ated, can serve two masters, or two causes, by the same act. Xow the man who professes religion or tem perance who owus a pa' ty, or a party uirn, need never proclaim himself with the tongue to be an enemy ol that system of crime which any party may shield within its organization when be casts a ballot" for that party which covers tbe crime. His ballot will belie all be may say or do other wise. The evil doers will count him on their side, notwithstanding his professions aud pretensions. Ibesuf ferers at the hands of these evii-doers will look in that man's face and aay to him. "All your professions are but hypocrisy to me, and as for your bal lot. you gave it in aid of my enemy.' AH men, and every man, who casts his ballot with si cb parlies, serve one master only, and not two. Is it not then consistent that all such profess- itiir Christians and temperance men should be accounted dead ? They com pany with and labor together witu evil-doers, and they have fellowship with wrong. Hence tbe oft-repeated reply of those men vrtiea handed ballot that means the suppression of crime and tbe protection ot virtue, that " this ballot represents a good cause, and tbey hope it will some day triumph, but the present is not tba time to use it ; " and immediately hie themselves to the ballot-box with ballot tbey know means union with and support 01 crime, .every man who speaks thus and acts thus, will remain an open and d-ci ired enemy innocence and helplessness, not withstanding all that his tongue may say otherwise. As a test of these de clarations, bring face to face tbe two most interested parties to be allected their ballots, viz. :- The maker and seller of alcohol, who obtains bis liv ing thereby , aud tbe wife, who in all things is destroyed by the occupation the 3rst pursues. Both are deeply in terested in ana anected by these bal lots ; one for his money, the other for home and life. Now let all these Christian and temperance men cast their ballots. The man-murderer with alcohol stands by and sees tbe mil lions of ballots from this class of men into ttie box, and almost all lor tha parties in alliance with him political These are counted, and, as at the last election, nearly every one went into tbe Republican or Liberal Re publican box, no matter which, td him. We are at the point now where bal lots tell, aud professions are nothing. Couut them. Tbey are counted. Now whose face brightens at tbe result? The murderer or bis victim? Jsot the victim, sure. The black heart of the enemy of all men overflows with joy, by the use of the ballot iu the hands of professed Christian Ken. How is it with the other interested party mentioned by us? The means, acts and agencies that were used to shield and sustain the first iu crime, overwhelmed ber with tbe black ness aud darkness of woe, which is penetrated by no ray of hope or joy. This then 1 the pniiosopny ot mis moral and spiritual death of these dead men; and no resurrection of them take place until they change their voice am' vole from the support ot the criminal to the protection of the vic The same principle and philos ophy obtains here as in the case of the slave and his bolder. There was a period when tbe holder was remem bered by the professed Christians of land, and they showered their bal iu torrents upou him, aud said thereby he should not be molested, the slave, his victim, received f w ballets and many cold-slough profes or regard.

The Wonderful Head that Mr. Hannegan put on Zach. Chandler. At great expense I have obtained a complete narrative of tbe celebrated fight between tbe Hon. Zacli. Chan dler, of Michigan, and Mr. Hanne gan, of Indiana, son of ex-Senator Hannegan, who was Minister to Prus sia. It happened in tbe National Ho tel, at meal time. Zach. took advan tage of the fortuitous concourse of sev eral persons to abuse Voorbees loudly while in his presence. His remarks resounded all over the dining room, such as " Traitor," "Scoundrel," etc., plentifully consorted with oaths. " Dan.," said Hanneean, " 1 would n't stand that foul-mouthed vitupera tion." " I won't," said Dan., and he went over to Chandler and struck him a back-handed blow, which resounded like a whip-crack. Chandler, who had got up wrong end foremost, immediately struck out at Voi rhees, when, Mr. Hannegan, interposing, remarked : "Gentlemen, this is not tbe place fora personal collision a dining-ioom where you disturb the people. Think of your positions, and do not disgrace your constituents." " Who in h 1 are you ? " exclaimed Chandler, and with that he struck Mr. Hannegan with all his force on the side of his face. Hannegan was stunned by tbe blow which he had not expected, being a peacemaker and not a fighter; but be picked up a molasses pitcher and brought it down on Zacb.'s forehead so that be was covered with blood and molasses, wbicb, strange as it may ap pear, seemed to improve his appear ance. He took up the nearest jug be could find to strike Hannegan with it, but Hannegan ducked his head, and Zach. struck an entirely harmless per son in the abdomen, who forthwith got tne cramps and walked out of tbe dining room on bis belly. Hannegan said that he now understood that Zach. meant business ; so forthwith he took that great patriot by the top knot, and pushing his bead down to waid tbe floor, dragged him along, planting blows all over his frontis piece, and neaiiy making an Intelli gent countenance out of the Senator's face. Much spent, gasping and froth ing, Zacharias followed his b air across tbe floor, and several ladies rushing in, cried : " Oh, don't kill that man ! " "2o. ladies." said Hannegan. "I just want to keep him from injuring me, and ir you will take care of him, I shall let him go immediately." With this, Hannegan gave Zach. a last shot, which effectually finished him, and tbe Michigan Ajax rolled over on his back, and was wbeelbar rowed away by some of the servants. Chicago Tribune Washington Letter. MARK TWAIN AGAIN. MORE ABOUT THE SANDWICH ISLANDS Mark Twain has written to the Tri bune another of his inimitable letters about tbe Sandwich Islands. We have room for only a few extracts. KAMEHAMEHA V. He was a wise sovereign ; lie had seen something of tbe world ; he was educated and accomplished, and he tried hard to do well by his people. and succeeded. There was no trivial royal nonsense about him ; he dressed plainly, poked about Honolulu, night or day, on bis old horse, unattended ; be was popular, greatly respected, and even beloved. Perhaps the only man who never feared him was "Prince Bill," whom I. have mentioned here tofore. Perhaps tbe only man who ever ventured to speas bis whole mind about the King, in Parliament and the hustings, was the prtsent true heir to tne throne if Prince Bill stil lives, and I have not heard that he Is dead. This go-ahead young fel low used to handle His MajeHv with out gloves, and wholly indifferent to consequences; and being a shade more popular with the native masses than thp King himself, perhaps his opposi tion amounted to something. The foregoing was the common talk of Honolulu six years ago, and I set the statements down here because I be lieve them to be true, and not because know them to be true. A WORD ABOUT "PRINCE BILL." Prince William is about 3o years of age, now, I should think. There is no blood relationship between him and the house of the Kamebamehas. He comes of an older and prouder race: a race of imperious chiefs ana princes of tbe Island of Maine, who held undisputed away there during several hundred years. He is the elev enth prince in the direct descent, aud the natives always paid a peculiar homage tn bis venerable nobility, which they uever vouchsafed to the mushroom Kainebamebas. He is con sidered the true heir to the Hawaiian throne, for this reason, viz : A dying retiring King can name his own successor," by the law of the land be can name any child of bis he pleases, he can. name his brother orany other member of the royal family. The late king has passed away with out leaving sou, daughter, brother, uncle, nephew or father (his father never was a king he died a year or two ago), and without appointing any successor. Tbe Parliament has power now to elect a king, and this kiug can chosen from any one of tbe twelve chief families. This has been my un- erslacding of the matter, and I am ery sure I am right. In rank, Prince William overtops anv chief in the Is lands about as au English royal Duke overtops a mere earl. He is the only Hawaiian outside of the royal family ho is entitled to bear and transmit title of Prince: and be is so popu that ir the scepter were put to a popular vote, he would "walkover track." He used to be a very handsome fel with a truly princely deport ment, drunk or sober; but I merely peak figuratively he never was runk; he didn't hold enough. All features were fine, and lie bad a Roman nose that was a model of beau and grandeur. He was brim full spirit, plack and enterprise; bis was lull or Drains, and hisspeecb facile aud all alive with point and vig mere was nothing underhanded two-faced about him, but heal wajs went straight at everything he under without caring who saw bis or understood his game. He was potent friend of America and Amer icans. Such is the true heir to the vacant throne if he is not dead, as I Derore. 'I If WHISKEY'S ANTIDOTE. have suggested that William drinks. That is not an objection to a Sandwich Islander. Whisky cannot them ; it can seldom even tangle leg"or befog the brain of a prac ticed ive. It is only water witb a flavoVlo it, to Prince Bill ; it is what is to us. Eoi is the all powerful that protects tbe lover of whig Whoever eats it habitually may Imbibe habitually without any serious harm. Tbe late king and his late sis Victoria, both drank unlimited whisky, and so would the rest of the natives if they could get it. The na beverage, awa, is so terrific that whiskey is mere foolishness to it. It a man's skin to white fish-scales are so tough a doe might bite him. he would not know it till he read in the papers. It is made of a 01 some kind. The "Quality ' this to some extent, but tbe ex cise law has placed it almost beyond reach of the pleblans. After aira, is whiskev ? EMauy years ago the late King and brother visited California, and Sacramento folks tbooght it I it of be if t vou be and aud a thau would be fun to get them drunk. So they gathered together the most re sponsible soakers in the town and t-s-gan to fill up royalty and themselves with strong brandy punches. At tbe end of twnr or tbree hours tbe citi zens were !1 lying torpid under the table, and the two princes were sit ting disconsolate and saying what a lonely, dry country it was! I tell it to you as it was tod to me in Sacra mento. WHY WE SHOULD ANNEX. Xow let us annex the islands. Only think how we could build up that whaling trade. Though under onr courts and judges it might soon be as impossible for whale ships to rendez vous there without being fleeced and "pulled" by sailors and pettifoggers as it now is in San Francisco a place the skippers shim as tbey would rocks and boals. Let us annex. We could make sugar enough there to supply all America, and prices would be very easy with the duties removed. And then weshouk' have such a fine half way house for our Pacific-plying ships ; and such a convenient auoply depot and such a commanding sentry box for an armed squadron; and we could raise cotton and coffee there and make it pay, with the duties off and the capital easier to set at, And then we could own tbe mightiest volcanoon earth Kilauea! Barnum could run it be understands fires now. Let us annex, bv all means. We could pacify Prince Bill and oth er nobles easily enough put them on a reservation. Nothing pleases a sav age like a reservation a reservation where he has his annual hoes, and Bibles, and blankets to trade for pow der and whisky a sweet Arcadian retreat, fenced in with soldiers. Bv annexing, we would get all those 50, 000 natives cheap as dirt, with their morals and other diseases thrown in Xo expense for education thev are already educated ; no need to convert them they are already converted : no expense to clothe them for obvi ous reasons. e must annex those Deorle. We can afflict them with our wise and be DtQcent government. Weean intro duce the novelty of thieves, all th way up from street car pickpockets to municipal robbers and government defaulters, and show them bow amus ing it is to arrest tb m and then turn them loose some for cash and some for "political influence." We cau make them ashamed of their simple and primitive justice. We can do away with their occasional hangings for murder, and let them have Judge rratt 10 teacn mem. how to save im periled Avery assassins to society. w e can give them .Barnard to keep money corporations out of difficulties. We can give tbem juries composed entirely of tbe most simple and charming leatherbeads. We can give them railway corporations who ill buy their legislatures like old clothes and run over their best citizens and complain of the corpses for smearing the track with their unpleasant juices. Inr place of harmless and vaporing Harris, we can give them Tweed. We can let tbem have Conuelly; we can loan tbem Sweeny ; we can furnish them some Jay Goulds, who will do away with their old lime notion that stealing is not respectable. We can confer Woodhull and Clafiin on tbem. Aud George Franei Train. We can give them lecturers! I will go my self. We can make that little bunch of sleepy Islands the hottest corner on earth, and array it in moral splendor of our high aud holy civilization. Annexation is what tbe poor island ers need.

The death of the ex-Emperor Xa poleon recalls an incident of tbe great Southern rebellion which has not hitherto been made public. It is well known that tbe late Emperor of the French was an active and earnest sympathizer with the South; that more tban once he seriously medita ted material intervention in its be half ; that tbe invasion of Mexico and the enthronement of Maximilian in the seat of the Montezumas was a cart of a deliberate plot to break uVthe American Union.

The story of his purpose is short but suggestive, and was told by Mr. Sew ard to a few personal friends at a din ner party, among whom was the wri ter of this article. Xoone who was present will ever forget the intense earnestness and animation of the great statesman as be related the mo mentous incident. Tbe exact words, so pregnant with eloquent meaning so .solemn ana impassioned we cannot in every instance reproduce, but the general import is given be low : "It was," said Mr. Seward, "in tbe earnest days or the rebellion.

The Swiss Times says that at the menagerie of 8ignori Bidel and Far nali, at Turin, on Monday evening, December 13, tbe audience were treat ed to performance not announced on the bills. Signor Bidel, the famous lion tamer, entered, as usual, a large cage in which were lions, lionesses, bears, hyenas and a lamb. After the feats of leaping, &c., ordinarily shown in such exhibitions, the grand feature consisted in tbe simultaneous ap proach of the -wild animals to the iamb, and the exchange of the "kiss of fraternity." This waa accomplished successfully, the animals methodical lo touching noses, then gravely stalk ing back to their places. The per formance was to close with putting the lamb's head iu tbe mouth of the lion. Xo sooner had the jaws closed upon the head of the lamb tban it was evident by the eyes and movement cf ihe tail of the lion that foul play was threatened, and before a word of com mand could be given streams of blood were running from bis mouth. Chil dren screamed and women fainted, but fortunately the panic was of short duration. Signor Bidel, with a tre mendous blow on the throat of the li on and a shout of command, forced the half wild beast to relinquish bis victim, and, although roaring fear fully, sullenly obeyed tbe fixed eye and gesture of his master, retiring to a corner of the cage. But, 10 tbe re newed horror of the audience, in deal ing with the lion he bad turned hia back on tbe lioness, who, with ahcwl of rage, leaped upon his back. Fortu nately for Bidel, her claws and teeth entered his clothiogoniy, and, with a spring and cry, he leaped from under her, at the same time striking right and left with his loaded whip, forcing the animals to the front of the cage. There was an instant of hesitation and submission on the part of the latter, during which Bidel, revolver in band, unfastened the cage and backed him self out of it. Seeing him safe there action of the audience was tremen dous, and the cheers which greeted his appearance were deafening. Al though perfectly quiet, the deadly pallor of bis face gave evidence of the danger be bad passed. BEN. FRANKLIN'S BIRTHDAY. Printers are a singular class of men. They seem to be compounded chiefly of misanthropy and humor. Yester day a reporter, perceiving one of tbem leaning lonely against an Indian, out. side of a Fifth avenue tobacco store, approached and inquired if tbe craft intended to - celebrate Franklin'a birthday. Gently cornering his nuid. so as to permit of easy elocution, the intelligent compositor placidly re marked. "I guess not. Union print ers won't celebrate over Franklin worth a cent" "And why not?" the reporter in quired. "Well, he was an old 'rat' Frank lin was we don't recognize him." "How do you know he was a "rat ? There were no union in his time." "Well, we know this much, that he advised people to work whenever they could evea if they only made fire cents by it and that ain't our style. That ain't no sort of union princi ple. Finding that the intelligent comp. warmed up on the subject, the report-, er proceeded to souls d him upon Franklin'a personal history asked him what remarkable things Frank lin had ever done. "I don't know as he ever did any thing very remarkable. He wouldn't make a decent living any rate if he was here now. The only thing ever heard of him doing was that he walkeu from Boston to Philadelphia, and used to go looning about the streets there with a bunk of bread un der hia arm, instead of settling down regularly to respectable boarding." "That's small loundation for fame. He must have doue something more than that." "Yes, I believe he discovered lightning- (not the 'forty-rod' Jersey quality, though, that the Union takes to.) He was also given to flying kites, and other vagaries." "So iheu tbe union compositors will not celebrate his birthday to night?" "Xo, I guess not," was the reply, thft infrvipn7&rfl flArl t;mBir easeoncn more against tho tobacco store Indian. "Xo, I guess not ; we -don't wan't no such man for our pat tern, it ne was here to-day be could make a decent living, and our 1 : 1 . wumu eAcummunicate mra anyhow." "One Thing at a Time." The National Live Slock Journal notes that the history of stock hus bandry in Europe and in this country satisiactorily proves that few men succeed in any marked desrree as breeders of more than one race of s mestic animal, or of more than one Tariety of a single race.
