T 1125 NEW CLASSIFICATION.
The new bull register of the Association of Lake
Underwriters lias been distributed among the
agents representing (he Insurance companies, and
—to use a forcible slang phrase—it has provoked
“a terrible kick "from many vessel-owners, who
consider that they have been unjustly and out
rageously treated in the classification of thetr
crafts. Ono owner who had been permitted to see
how his own and others* vessels bad boon rated
declorcd that it was a terrible slauchtor and an
outrage; and (bat was bat a sample of tho opinions
generally expressed.
It Is estimated that vessels representing 00,000
or 70,000 tons have been thus suddenly dropped
from the gram-carrying class ami placed tn (bo
lumber fleet, wbtcb has too much tonnage for the
business.
Complaints are numerous, loud, and deep about
this new classification. Vessel-owners who are af
fected by it—and there arc very few who are not—
assert In bitter terms that the Inspection was made
lu tho wiutor, when tho vessels were covered with
Ico and snow, nud thulr (Itoiita were stored
away, so time an Impartial Investigation was
not possible, and that thu companies Interested
tn tho inspection gain largely by It; vessel-owners
that insure In a certain company they have favored,
whether (bey deserved It or not, and vessels that
have been classed down should not have been.
It is also reported that tho Northern Transit pro
pellers have been rated down, so that there is
every probability of a vigorous protest from their
owners.
'i'noro is some'talk of legal proceedings In con
nection with the classification, and It has been
suggested that a test case bu mndo and sub
mitted to tho courts to determine whether
tho insurance companies have any lawful
right to make such a classification of a man's ves
sels, and thus decreasing the value of his property
without consulting him, and then publishing it so
that almost any person so desiring can see the
rating nnd valuation of tho vessels so classified.
Last spring there wore similar complaints about
the "Inland Lloyds Vessel-Register," and the
Inspector-Genera), who had gone behind tho re
turns, put some vessels down whoso owners forced
him to put them up again.
On the other hand, it ia said that tho classifi
cation was fairly mndo, ond tho condition of
those vessels that have been dropped a peg
warrant the rating as made. Craft that uavo not
been repaired have been lowered a half in their
rating, audln a few Instances, where repairs and
rebuilds have been made, the rating has been In
creased a half.
There Is every likelihood that the new classifica
tion will oncomlor much ill-fcollug, and result In
bitter attacks on tho autlArs of it.

THE LATE BLIZZARD.
The northeast galo of Wednesday, which was
accompanied by a blinding fall of enow, was a
severe one, and a small fleet of lumber-hookers
got caught In 11, and wero pretty thoroughly shaken
up, aud their docks, spars, nnd rigging covered
with snow and Ico. Fortunately, no serious
casualties occurred, at least so far as has been as
certained. Vessels that left this port Tuesday and
Wednesday wero driven back, ami several of them
dropped anchors outside nnd rode out the muu.
Very curly Thursday morning tho weather turned
colder, and Jack’s hardships were increased. The

Topeka, Knu., April B.—The monthly report
of Die Stole Board of Agriculture, made up of
statistics furnished by local correspondents In
all localities, and showing the condition of tho
crops, etc., Is Just completed nnd ready for tho
press. Beturns from sixty-two counties place
tho condition of winter wheat at an average of
05 per cent. About half tho counties are put at
from 5 to 10 per cent above tho general average,
and few of tho others fall below 80 per cent.
Wheat that was sown early In the full Is In excel
lent condition everywhere. That which was
sown late In tho fall, especially on
sandy soil, -Is at a standstill for
want of rain, . hut a copious rain
within the next two weeks will insure a very
fair crop, tnaugh something below last year’s
average. Spring wheat that was sown so as to
make its appcoranco before the present dry* and
chilly weather has withered to some extent, but
Itlstdought Umtmostof it will still grow and
make perhaps a two-thirds crop if rains occur
soon, say within ten to twelve days.
Theground Is In splendid condition for plow
ing, and a much larger area of corn than usual
will ho planted. The weather Is strangely cold,
with keen northwest winds, and grass and
foliage ore uncommonly backward.
The emigration to the Slate Is far larger than
has ever been known before, careful estimates
placing tho arrivals at over a thousand a day.

farmers. Tho outlook for abundant crops is
very favorable. Tha Increase In acreage of
grain will bo between 25 mid 80 per cent. Tho
weather Is very favorable for tho putting In of
crops, as wo have had two raius recently. In
Saunders County there will bo more wheat nnd
corn than last year. In Colfax County the In
crease la tho acreage of wheat will
bo from BO to 75 per coat; 25 per
cent increase In Platte, Butler, nnd Merrick
Counties. Tho increase lu Buffalo County will
bo 100 per cent. Largo Increase In Dawson
County. Fifty per cent Increase in Lincoln
Countv, uml so on throughout tho State,
especially In tho South Platte counties. Tho In
crease in acreage will bo very large.
There will bo a great deal more corn planted
this year than last, and the same may be said of
ryo nnd barley.
Now settlers are pouring Into tho State very
fast,, and breaking-up land and putting In big
crops. If the season proves favorable, Nebraska,
In proportion to the population, will lend all the
agricultural States Ju tho abundance of her
harvests.

now OLD IS THE WOULD!
London Academy,
Geologists, astronomers, and physicists alike
have hitherto been bnllled In their attempts to
ect up . any satisfactory kind of chronometer
which will approximately measure geological
time, and thus give us some clow to the an
tiquity of our globe. It Is therefore worth not
ing that Mr. Mcilard Bcadu, of Liverpool, has
lately contributed to the Koyal Society a very
sugpcstlvo paper, lu which ho endeavors to grap-
Plo with the question by employing tho lime
stone rocks of the earth’s crust as an Index of
geological time. Limestones havo Leon in
course of formation from Dm earliest known
geological periods, bur. it would appear that tho
Jalor formed strata aro more cuicarcoua than
tho earlier, and that there has, In fact,
been a gradually progressive Increase of
calcareous matter. The very extensive donosl
lion of carbonate of lime over wide areas of (ho
ocean-bottom at the present day Is sulUdenlly
attested by the recent soundings of the Chal
lenger. According to the author’s estimate, the
sedimentary crust of the earth Is at least one
mllo In average actual thickness, of which proh
ably ono-lcuth consists of calcareous matter.
In seeking the onglo of this calcareous matter.
It Is assumed that tho primitive rocks of the
original crust were of the nature of granite or
basaltic rocks. By the dlslnlegrnllnn of such
rocks, calcareous and other sedimentary depos
its have been formed. The amount of ilmo
salts In waters which drain districts made up of
granites and basalts Is found, by a comparison
of analyses, to be, on an average, about U.7IJ
parts In ibO.OOO parts of water. It Is further
assumed that tho exposed areas of igneous
rocks, taking nn average throughout all geologi
cal time, will hear to the exposures of sedimen
tary rocks a ratio of about one to nine. From
these and other data Mr. Keade concludes that
the elimination of the calcareous matter now
found In all the sedimentary strata must have
occupied at least 600.000,000 of years. This
therefore, represents tho minimum ago of tho
world. Tho author infers that Uie formation of
urn Loareuilan, Cambrian, mid Silurian strata
must havo occupied ab0ut.200,000,000 of years:
tho old red sandstone, tho carboniferous, am!
tho polkllltlc systems, another 200,000.000; and
all tho other strata, remaining 200.000,000. Mr
Readols, therefore, led to bellovo that geological
tlmo imshccn enormously la excess of tho limits
urged by certain pnysidsts; uud that it has
been ample to allow for all the changes which
on the hypothesis of evolution, havo occurred
in tho organic world.
LIPR-TNSUUANCK FOU INVALIDS.
A writer iu the Portland (Me.) J'rett proposes
a now plan ot life-insurance,—a company In
which only Invalids ami weaklings shall bo In

cannot count on him. Ue Is always sure to dlo

utter ruin of many strong companies, and the

Once Iu a while a vigorous young man lives to

KO TIME FOR SENTIMENT,
Utlrall Frtt Prtti,
At a furniture-auction on Gratiot avenue, the
other day, a widow seemed to bo quite anxious
to possess bcrsclf of a second-hand stand; and
the only bidder in opposition was a long-bodied
young man, whose team and wagon were hitched
across the street. One of the crowd slipped
around to Mm and said:
"I presume you have feelings for a poor
widow, who is tryiug to get alone and educate
her children?”
“Yes,” was the reolv.
„ "’dll llicii, ilon't bid oealn.t thl, widow on
that stand. I think she suspects that there is a
secret draw full ol greenbacks in It, mid the

“Two dollars mid u quarter I” called the long

The Pope, us it is well known, has been a mem*
bur of Arcadia for many years. Arcadia Is the
celebrated Illcrary Homan Society that was
founded In this city at the end of the seven
teenth century. Its first meetings were held
In the Palazzo Hlarlo, now Croslna, Luncara;
Inhabited (hen by Christina of Sweden. That
Queen was Its first patroness. The members of
the Society originally were the learned men who
formed the literary court that assembled around
that remarkable woman. The first meeting was
held on the SUb of January. HIM, over 200
years ago. The celebrated jurisconsult, (Jravlna,
was one of the first officers of Arcadia, and drew
up Its beautiful tabic of laws. The main
end of the Society was the study of moral phil
osophy, amt poetry was afterwards added. The
first President was the distinguished Creaclm
bcnl. He wrote a history of the Society, as well
»* tunny other literary works. When the Queen
of Sweden died In HW9, the Academy became an
Independent-society. Its meetings were some
times held In the harneao Dardcos on the Pala
tine, then In the OlardlnoOulnaslu, on the lone
ly and beaut Ifni Avenllne; it wop at that time
the places of meeting look the names of Doaco
1 arraiso and Arcadia, and the Society continued
the custom, still adhered to. ol Imposing Greek
poetical names on Its members In conformity to
the first pastoral Idea.
The first meeting of Arcadians an Inde

the Convent of St. Pietro, In Montorlu, under

longer called President, but Custodc Oenuralc,
mid his name In Arcady was Alfeslbco Carlo.
Ihe office of Cuslode is elective; Its duration is
on olympiad; at the end of every four years the
Custodc is still re-clectca ora new one chosen.
Our first Custodc, Crcsclmbcui or Alfeslbco, be
