BILLINGS, MONTANA. THE OYSTER. Oh! n jolly old bird is the oyster fish As lie sits in his pearly shell, A-thinking how many a delicate dish He can make when cooked well. Broiled or roast, Served on toast, Or raw on a dainty platter; . Escallop or stew, Either will do, Or fried in crunms or batter. And a knowing old fish is the oyster bird, ^ As he slyly seems to doze; For he drops not a hint, he speaks not a word O fall the secrets he knows— Blissful hours, Shady bowers, Whispering low and sweet; Table delights, Merry old nights, Winn jolly old cronies meet. GLADSTONE AT HOME. Sketches of tlie Home I.il'e of the Prime Minister of t lie British Em • pire. Hawarden Castle, the seat of the Rt. Hon. O. E. Gladstone (says an English writer) forms one of the greatest attrac tion» the county of Flint. The house is distant about two miles from Queens erry Station, on the Chester and Holy head Railway, and from the Broughton Station on the Chester and Mold Branch, but the greater number of tourists prob ably proceed by road from Chester, which is a drive of just six and a half miles each way. The castle stands in grounds of its own, with a park outside, to which visitors are freely admitted. More than one-third of the entire county is owned by only thirteen pro prietors, of whom the largest is Lord Hanmer, with 7,318 acres, while Mr. Gladstone is the next largest, with 6,908 acres, of which many are immediately round about his resi dence; and there are very few properties of similar extent which comprise more .agreeable and diversified scenery— charming vistas can be seen among the oaks, limes and elms, interspersed with pleasant peeps of ivy-covered ruins and mossy walls. It is a matter of notoriety that Mr. Gladstone delights in wielding the ax, and in performing the rough manual labor ot common woodman. He has here abundant materials on which to exercise bis skill, and if the visitor arrives at a favorable moment, he may perchance see a tree, several leet in diameter, which lias been felled by one of the most intellectual men of the time, or view the prime minister of England, with shirt sleeves rolled up, •engaged in chopping timber or cutting firewood, for Mr. Gladstone is in no way ashamed of his pursuits, and has even had himself photographed stripped to The shirt while engaged at his work. His axes, which are said to exceed thirty in number; many of them costly presents from ardent admirers, are, however, too sacred to be exhibited, and are among the few things at Hawarden which are not open to the public gaze. The church at Hawarden is at the northern end of the village, and externally is a plain old building, with a low tower and a dwarf spire. As almost all except the bare walls was de fstroye by tire about a quarter of a cen tury ago, the interior is new, and it is trim and well kept, as a church should he. The principal approach to the churchyard leads through rather el egant iron gates, bearing over them the inscription, "Enter into his gates with thanksgiving," and passes a venerable yew-tree close to the church porch. On entering this the visitor has almost in front of him the reading desk at which Mr. Gladstone reads the lessons whenever he has an opportunity, an*! on his right the bare, uncushioned fam ily bench—for in this church there are only open benches, and none of those comfortable old family pews with cur tains, where a man of a quiet turn o mind can take a nap. In a nook close to the chancel there is a fine recumbent effigy in white marble of Sir Stephen Richard Glynne, Bart, (born September 22, 1807; died June 17, 1874), through whom the Hawarden estate came to its present possessors; but the other slabs and orn iments are paltry, and have no public interest. The living of Ilawar tien is stated to be worth £4,000 per annum, and it is held by the «Premier's son, the Rev. Stephen Glad stone, who lives at the rectory, hard by the church gates, a building which has a most repulsive exterior, though it is said to bo a comfortable house to live in, and is often used by the rector's father as a residence, in preference to his own larger and more pretentious house. This latter is a half-mile away, well hidden amongst lofty trees. There are several approaches to the park and house, of which the upper one, in tiie middle of the village, close to the Glynne Arms, is the most im posing, and the lower one the most picturesque. There are two castles, the old and the new. The former, now a venerable, ivy-covered ruin, is a build ing of great antiquity , having a history extending back earlier than the Nor man Conquest; and it looks down upon its modern castellated neighbor, with its formal parterres and neat surround ings. The best general view of the new castle is obtained from the slope leading downward from the old ruins; and look ing from this direction, three windows will be noticed at the end of the ground floor of the modern struclure. The two on the left belong to the library, or "Mr. Gladstone's room," his study and sane turn. Should you be permitted to enter this—which is, liowever, by no means the only room in the castle in which books are located—you will find in room not twenty feet square, neither lofty nor imposing, crowded up with books, papers and f urniture, busts, china, medalbou», and other articles indicative of a man of' culture and taste. In this there is a 'little room left for moving about. The ever-growing books, con stantly encroaching on the limited space, are disposed irregularly on every side, and are mainly held hack to back on what may be described as elongated tallboys, an arrangement of which Air. Gladstone, is said to be exceedingly proud, but which is by no means pecu liar to this bouse, and is adopted by many literery men, as a convenient method of storing many volnmes in a small area. The nature of the books in this room indicates a man of wide and various tastes rather than a bibliomaniac. The eye does not light upon masterpiecer of binding, or upon tliin folios, which are valuable more for their title pages than for their contents. The reception and dining-rooms of Hawarden occupy the side of the house facing the garden, and just outsiee of them is the gravel walk, which is the favorite walk of the great man when he can get no further abroad. The apartments, as a whole, are respect able rather than magnificent, and many retired grocers have larger rooms and for more gorgeous furniture. Mrs. Glad stone, it is well known, has been a val uable assistant to her husband through out his life. She lias helped him in his work and shared in his triumphs. One of the most interesting things to be seen at Hawarden in connection with this lady . is the Orphanage, a building which lies close to the house, in the stable-yard; and it is pleasant to see the well-cared-for children returning home with rosy cheeks from their ram- bles in the park, and to hear the walls echo with tneir laughter. Simplicity of life is seldom associated with persons of great distinction, and so it seems strange to have in one week the same individual shouting excited addresses at the hustings, or addressing a rapt audience in the house of commons, and then laboring with the axe; or a lady standing on the balcony by the side of her victorious husband, thank- ing a gesticulating and noisy crowd, and then quietly returning to care for her - f ' - - ■ fatherless children; whilst it is even more difficult to believe that at the sim ple desk in the library, which is called the',"politicai;table," many of the schemes have been evolved, and the passages penned, which have carried the name of Gladstone throughout Europe, and far beyond ROMANCE OF POCAHONTAS. From the Century. From her. first meeting with Smith she became devotedly attatched to the English, and rendered the settlers many services. She often secured supplies for them, and indeed seems to have haunted the fort, utterly naked as she was, after the manner of little girls among her people, who wore no clothes and showed no modesty until they were twelve or thirteen years of age, at which time they put on a deerskin apron and were very careful not to be seen without it. The agile little barbarian would per suade the English lads to make wheels of themselves by turning upon their hands and feet, whereupon she would follow them, wheeling as they did, all through the fort. Her real name was Maotoax; but, by order of Powahatan, this was carefully concealed from the whites, lest by then supernatural enchantments they should work her some harm. When Richard Wyffin was sent from Jamestown to ap prise the endangered Gapt. Smith, envi roned bv foes among Powhatan's people, of the death of his deputy, Air. Scriven er, and his ten companions, by drown ing, Pocahontas hid him, misdirected those who sought him, and, by extraor dinary bribes and maneuvers, brought him safely to Smith, after three day's travel in the midst of extreme peril. So, also, when Radeliffe was cut ofl with 30 men, she saved the lad Spilman, whe was then living with Powhatan, and seul him to the Potomacs. But the most touching Siory of all precedes in order of time the other two. In the same dif ficult adventure among Powhatan's peo ple, in which Capt. Smith was engaged when Scrivener wai dix» wned, the treacherous chief had ar ranged to surprise Smith at supper, and cut off the whole party, when Pocahon tas, the "dearest jewel and daughter" ol the aged chief, "in that dark night came through the irksome woods" to warn the captain of Powhatan's design. Capt. Smith offered to repay her kindness with such trinkets as the heart oHm In dian maiden delights in; "but, \#th the tears running down lier cheeks, she said she durst hot be seen to have any, for, if Powhatan should know it, she were hut dead ; and so she ran away by her self as she came." In 1G13 Pocahontas was among the Po tomac Indians. Capt. Aagall, a man ot much shrewdness and executive force, but infamous for his dishonest practices, happened to be trading in the river at that time. He quickly sawthe advant we the English would gain in negotiations with Powhatan for the return of the white prisoners held by him, if he would se cure so valuable à hostage as the chief's daughter. With a copper kettle lie bribed Japazaws, the chief with whom she was staying, to entice her on board the vessel, where lie detained her, much to tlie sorrow of the daughter of the wilderness, whose life hitherto had been as free as that of the wild creatures of the woods. To Jamestown, where she had frolicked as a child, anu wheth er she had so offen come as a friend with food, she was now carried ns an enemy and a prisoner. She had refused to enter the town since the departure of Capt. Smith This transaction, not very creditable to the gratitude of the English, accom plished its purpose in causing Powhat an to return with the least useful of the stolen arms. But hesti.l contrived to evade some of the demands of the Eng lish, who therefore retained his daugh ter until the affair took a new turn. John Rolfe, who seems to have been a widower, became enamored of Pocahon-. tas, now growing to womanhood, and' wrote a formal letter to Sir Thomas Dale, proposing to convert her to Christianity and marrv her, which pleased the gov ernor, as tending to promote peace with the Indians, and was likewise acceptable to Powhatan. The chief sent an old un cle of Pocahontas and two of her broth ers to witness the marriage. This mar riage brought about peace during the life of Powhatan, who, on one occasion a least, sent a present of buckskins to hia daughter and her husband. A free in termingling of the two races took place, Rnd Englishmen were accustomed to hire Indians to live in their houses and hunt for them. This amity lasted eight years. In 1615, more than two years after their marriage, Rolfe and Pocahontas went to England with Sir Thomas Dale. Powhatan sent some Indians with his daughter, one of whom was commissioner to count the number of the English. The arrival of the Lady Rebecca, as Pocahon tas was called after her baptism, proved a great sensation. 8he was received by the king and many distinguished people, went to see a play, and, by help of tier naturally quick wit, bore herself very well. But it became necessary to desist from calling her the wife of John Rolfe, for the kin» was very jealous, and it was seriously debated in the privy council w hether, by marrying the daughter of a foreign potentate, without the king's consent, Rolfe had not committed trea son. The climate of London, and perhaps also the uncongenial habits of civilization, affected Pocahontas very unfavorably, and she was taken to Brentford ; where Smith, then busy with his pre parations to sail for New England visited her. In the suc cessful efforts of Rolfe and others to win her to the Christian faith and to marriage, they had not scrupled to de ceive, her by telling her that Captain Smith was dead, probably because they knew she would not marry another white man while she believed that great warrior alive. When, therefore, she saw the "brave" who had been the ob jeet of her maidenly admiration, she turned her face away and refused to speak for the space of two or three hours, When she did it was to claim the privilege of calling him father, which Smith granted only after importunity, afraid, perhaps, of incurring the king's displeasure. Pocahontas went to Graves end to take ship for her return to Amer ica much against her will, for she had become weaned from her savage life and greatly attatched to the English. At Gravesend she died of small pox three years after her marriage, leaving one son, from whom some of the most prom inent Virginian families trace their de scendants. It Was Mullett. From the New York Tribune. I sometimes see a slender, womanly faced, perplexed man in a poor gray suit of clothes walking around the post office building, as if he might have a let ter in there necessary to him, but not the money to get it out, and I say to mv companion: 'Whom do you guess yon der son of weariness to .be?" "A clerk out of a job," my companion will reply or a crank inventor, or a credulous picked duck from Wall street." No mv friend, that is Mullet. If you want to see his monument look around you He built the postoffice. He raised more ponderous architecture than Vanbrugh In every large city of America he built the greatest edifice. The mighty gov ernment citadels of Philadelphia, Cin cinnati, bt. Louis, Boston, Chicago, the San Francisco Mint, the State Depart ment at Washington, and nearly a hun dred lesser buildings which are the boast of minor towns. He was the engineer of the beautiful streets of Washington, where now, a friend relates to; me, his wife takes boarders to support her children. He who has built $&,000,000 worth of public architecture is next to homeless and the wandering child of need." Hon.

The districts most seriously affected through want of employment on farms, and failure of the potato crop, arc Sligo, Ballina, Swinford, and the greater portion of Galway. There is also mucti des titution in West Clare and Connaught. Ow ing lo the continuous heavy demands upon Irishmen in America to support the Land League, there has been a considerable de crease in remittances to the struggling na tives in Ireland, and it has reduced many to the condition of being unable to purchase new seed. In reference to a report that two Ameri cans have been murdered on the west coast of Madagascar, it is learned that one was killed and one seriously wounded. The name ot the former was Emerson, and of the latter Hüllet. A native attendant were also killed. An expedition ordered to punish the trilies who committed the murder was prevented irom sailing by the French con sulate. The Rhine is rising rapidly. The rain continues. The Rhine at Mayence lias reached the highest (»oint oT the century. Railway traffic is entirely suspended.

Removal* of Officials Charged With Aiding and Abetting the Star Rout ers. Last Saturday evening the Presidert directed the removal of Charles E. Henry, marshal of the District of Columbia; D. B. Atnger, postmaster, and Myron N. Parker, assistant postmaster of the city of Wash ington; M. D. Helm, foreman ot the Con gressional Record, and George E. Spencer, government director of the Union Pacific railroad, upon charges made by the attorney general and Col. Bliss, that the above mentioned officials interferred with the end of justice in connection with tiie star route trials. These offices will all ba filled im mediately, so there may be no interruption to the public service. To prevent any embarrassment in affairs in the marshal's office, tiie suspension of that officer will be withheld until his successor is ap pointed. Attorney General Brewster in a letter to the president eccommending the removal of the above named officers recapitulates the spe cific off enses of each. He says of Marshal Henry: "As an officer of the court and an officer » f t!;o government he was etiilty in this of an offense which has been punished by courts as a gross act of contempt. I leccommend his immediate removal. He is mi unsuitable person and lias injuriously interfered with the proper conduct of this star route case, and given his personal sym pathy an lthes.vmathy of his office to indict ed defendants. And in reference to the others lie says; "No men holding public appointments should be permitted to use the influence and power of their position os tiiey have used theirs, or be permitted to interfere with such precaution or any pros r.cutioh urged by the government in vindi cation of tiie law." Mr. Bronson concludes: 'T desire to call your attention to the fact that the officers of the law and those who have directly been ordering me in tiie discharge of my duty in this business have been from the first en circled v\ iih snares, pit-fails and every species of vile device that could be invented to harm them, binder their usefulness and prevent tiie administration of justice. Some por tions of tins community who surround these defendants and who have enjoyed or do still enjoy minor official positions, know no rllcgiance to any one but this band of robbers, and render no service to any one but these evil employers. From motives of gain or other corrupt, considerations, they are saturated with affinities for these bad men, anti they have contributed by every means in their (lower, at the bidding of their masters, to obstruct public justice atul to defame its officers, with the hope of secur ing the acquittal and escape of the worst hand of organized scoundrels that ever ex isted since tile commencement of Wie gov ernment." The star route men are quite taken by surprise and feel greatly disheartened by the dismissals. It affects them indirectly by indicating the more vigorous proscution of the star route cases. HIGH-PKICliD DR. HAMILTON. His Bill of $25,000 is Only to Indi cate a Minimum Compensation. Dr. Frans H. Hamilton, of New York, in submitting to the board of audit,, bis bill amounting to $25,999, foi services rendered to the late President, James A. Garfield, wrote to Judge Lawrence as follow« : I received y otlr note of the 19 h ultimo, calling my attention to the fact that the board ot audit is awaiting the presentation of any claim against the estate of the late President; * * * Availing myself of your suggestion that I may make to the board any further communication which I may deem props say : That in presen tation of a claim wbicli I know cannot be paid out of the sum ($35,999) placed at your disposal by congress, my intention is only to indicate to you what I would regard as as the minimum compensation for similar service in case of a private person who was pecuniarily responsible and who would not be embarrassed liy payment of such sum. * * * * I will Further say, that while I do not make niyseli any relative claim, I must protest against the presentation on the part of one of the physicians in attendance, of a relative claim, to tiie effect that he is entitled "to receive double the fee of any other physician in : ttendance," which claim was laid before the House committee, and may have been laid before your board. The letter was accompanied by a specific statement of the nature of the services ren dered, at the conclusion of which Dr. Ham ilton said : These circumstantial statements I make with great reluctance; but they seem to be rendered necessary by the Fact that there are intimations to the contrary, contained in the report of the House committee, and ob tained apparently Irom sources which the committee considered reliable. Moreover Congress has chosen to place the payment of tiie medical attendants upon a purely business basis ; and your board has there fore properly instructed the claimants to describe fully the services rendered. * * The sole item which I have to represent to your board as the basis of my claim in the longa ttendance upon the late President as a wi h its consulting surgeon wi h its accompany responsibilities which, God forbid, I shall aver again be called upon to bear.

It is said that tiie Southern Democratic con* gres-men will encourage all tiie debate possible on the reduction of internal revende taxes add modification of tariff, but the will not permit any action this winter.

THE CKDVV RESERVATION. Gen. Sheridan Report* tile Results ot His Exploring Trip in the Yellowstone Valley unit .Makes Some Recommendation«« Chicago, Nov. îlO.- Geu. Sheridan lias just completed the official report of liis tottr of ex ploration through tiie Yellowstone Valley. Un the subject of the CroV? reservation and its relation to the settlers along the Northern Pa cific raiiroad, the générai says: In the Crow reservation there are 6,000,000 acres of valuable land on which nothing is n,»w grown. It is used by the Crows only to gather a few berries and for grazing their small amount of stock, The Crow nation numbers 3,470 souls. They cannot keep this body of good land much longer for such purposes, and I would like to recommend that the government give 80 acres to tiie head of each fam ily, buy tiie balance fiorn the Indians, paving them say »50 cents an acre, if thought proper, then purchase government ' bonds witli this money aud each year u-e fur flieir support, through thé i omhiissiöner of Indian p(Tairs and their agent, the interest upon the bonds, Without to»icliiug the principal. In fact, if all Indians and fhvir f. serra tions were treated in this way a better system of government for the Indians could be obtained. It would also lie a good bargain for the govort ment, as the purchased laud could be sold to actual settlers for an advance, and be occupied by people paying taxes, to say nothing of the opening up of the country. The Indian would be satisfied, as he would then receive a fai« compensation for what we ackuowl dee be long" to him. On arriving at the railroad. I re gretted to learn that the National mirk had been rented out to private parties. The plate is worthy of being a national park, the geyser phenomena and tiio Yellowstone canyon having no parallel in any nation. The improvements in the park should be national, the control of it in the hands of an officer of the government, and small appropria tions be made and expended each year f >r tlie im provement of roads and trails. It has been now placed in the hands of private parties for money making purposes, from which claims aud con (iitious may arise that may ho hard for the govern ment and tile courts to shake off. I would like to see the government extend this park to the east as far as a north and south line through Cedar mountain. This would ba due bast abolit forty mile«! at tiie same time placing the southern boundary of tiie park at the 4ltli parallel of latitu ie, which would be due south ten miles. This wouid increase the area of the pafk by 3,344 square miles aud would make a preserve for the large game of the West,- now so rapidly de creasing. This extension would not be taking any thing aivav from the people, as the territory thus annexed to the park can never be settled upon. UJHTUARV. Conffrotfsrifim Updegrail. Cincinnati, Nov.

Miln's dramatic work so far is Hie re markable interest manifested in his performances by men of brains and culture. In Minneapolis, nine clergymen were present at a single perform ance, while five were counted ou a Hamlet night in this city. Messrs. Gannett and Wechsler called on Mr. Miln aud expressed their delight at his imper sonations. A •The Traitor Despised. The traitor is used in war and then ! despised. London society never treated , Benedict Arnold as a soldier and a gen- j tleman. A «Mexican officer, speaking of j Col. Lopez, who betrayed Maximilian the 1 Austrian, said, "People like him are made use of and then kicked out." j Lopez was Maximilian's bosom friend j and counsellor. Maximilian was god- j father to one of Lopez's children. Yet for ten thousand dollars this false friend opened at night the gate of Queretaro, where Maximilian was besieged, to the Republican army. "And I decorated that man oti that very night with tiie medal of valor," said Maximilian, with bitterness, on learning of Lopez's treachery. Even those who used the traitor, as the quickest way of ending the war, did not conceal their contempt for him. "I regret that the city had not been taken by assault," said president Juarez, thus showing he was not reconciled to the method of its capture. Some of the Mexican officers, though hostile to Maximilian, openly insulted Lopez. At four o'clock on the morning of the betrayal, a gentleman of Queretaro, who was also an enemy to the Usurper, was wakened by two officers of the re publican army, friends of his, and a stranger whom he did not know. "What is this?" asked the surprised host. "Are you prisoners? How came you frem the besieging army into the city?" "The city is taken!" replied Col. Rin con. "I am dying of exhaustion; give me some coffee and brandy my friend." This was hastily prepared, with tluee cups and glasses» But when the host of fered one to the stranger, Rincon called out,— • "No, no! I do not drink with a traitor. If he drinks, I do not!" The stranger was Col. Lopez, and not a word did he say in reply to tiie insult. »Subsequently, Lopez was present with several persons in this same gentleman's house, when the Republican Gen. Mar tinez came in and shook hands with them all. Presently he asked the host,— "Who is that stranger i shook hands with among our friend??" "That is Col. Lopez." "What!" he exclaimed; and going up to him, cried out in vehemence, "Col. Lopez! I gave you my hand without knowing who you were, and I will now wash it, for it is stained." Lopez shrunk away from thecompany. The noble conduct of the Indian, Gen. Mejia, was in striking contrast to Lopez's treachery. He had been one of Maxi milian's devoted aids and was captured with him. When Mejia was taken prisoner, aloa-g with Maximilian and Gen. Miramen, Escobedo volunteered to save his life. The noble Indian replied to this temp ting offer,— "I accept, ifthe Emperor and Miramon can l>e saved also." "Nothing can save Maximilian," ans wered Escobedo. "Then," replied Mejia, "they shall shoot me along with His Majesty." And they did. A Manufactured Panic. John Thompson of the Chase National bank of New Y'ork say: "There is nothing in the financial elements of the country that should cause the present depression. The panic has been a manufacture . one tor t ie express purpose of enabling a certain set of speculators to sell short, aud make a hig profit by frightening rite country. The money market also lias been damaged by the government receiving money faster than it disburses it." He thinks the bank ol England, perceiving the shipment of gold to this country, will increase its rate of interest from 5 to G (»er cent. • THE MARKETS. ST. PAUL. Flour— 1 Trade has been rather quiet, mostly local. Price» easy, though now firming no on rate cuts. Quotations: Tatents, $Gi 36 . 50 : clears, $4.7535.50; straights, $5(^5.50; common brands, $-1(35 : in bids, 25c extra. Buckwheat flour. $9 («(9.50 per bbl. Byo flour, $4.2534.50 per bbl. Graham, $5(35.50 per bbU Wheat —Since last review prices have advanced 335c per bu. This has been partially incidental to the freight rate cuts by the reads leading to Chi cago, on the theory that cheap eastern rate3 will induce heavy shinments to that market, thus de priving Bt. Paul and Minneapolis of their seeded supplies. The millers are buying steadily, and the outside milling demand is fair. Wheat sales are confined to round lots for milling purposes, and shipping is sjuiet. R-ceipts here are increasing, and what wheat is not taken on arrival goes into elevators on ftorage. On Tues day bids were no, and asking figures were a little ahead of them, especially for No. 1 hard. Soft wheat has been slow all the week. Farm ers'd.«!i vertes will probably be free, and arrivals here «vil! show increase. Stocks are likely to accu mulate, as the cutting roads will not be anxiousto furnish cars for iow freight grains when they can find more profitable use fqr them elsewhere. The market c'osed firm with upward tendency. Quota tions: N<«. 1 hard, $1.07 bid; $1.12 asked: No. 1, $] bid; No. 2 hard, $1 bid; No. 2, 93c bid, 95o asked; No. 3, 70380c bid. Coax—There is but little old corn in the market. The demand i3 moderate, but on scarcity prices tended upward, though showing no material ad vance. Holders were firm on Monday, but weak ened on Tuesday, owing to the fair receipts of new corn that is coming in, the better class of whi<di supplies tiie better demand. Chicago was easier on Tuesday. Closing prices: No. 2, 68o bid. 70c naked; new, G5c asked; old No. 2, ali the month, 70c asked. OATS—There has been a general scarcity al! the week, and on gcod local demand prices have ruled steady to firm, showing for the week an advance of !in'2c, the former for No. 2 mixed.

FLOUR—About the only alteration in the prices of flour yesterday ffom those of a week ago were caused by tiio drop in freight This equaled 25;$ 30c per bbl in local values, current prices being as follows: Patents, $6. 25Ö6.65: sfraiglits, $5.253 5.75; clears, $5©5.50: low grades, $203 per bbl. MillstufFis— Bran was materially higher yes terday than a week ago, closing at $9.50010 in hulk, owing to the drop in freight, an advance of $ 1.5002 for the week. Mixed feed remained steady, and closed at $24.50025.50 for No. 1 stock on track, inside bid, outside asked. Wheat —The business yesterday was of a trifling riiaracter. Dealers were afloat, unable to soe the shore. They were not, therefore, in any condition to trade. It waa reported that the warring railroads had determined to make the equivalent break in wheat rates that had been made in flonr rates and wheat advanced. This was deuiod, and it was stated that no ent was contemplated in wheat rates, aud prices went down again, closing nominally at $1.05 for No. 1 hard yesterday, abottt lc above the price a week ago. In Borne cases ent rates bave t een reported, and in others denied. It is hardly possible that the present method of charging 20c per 100 lbs on wheat to Chicago, and 5c per 100 lbs on mill products, can long exist without inaugu ra' in g a granger war that will be as hard to down as tho war on each other. Nominally price# yester' dav were $1.05 for No. 1 hard, $1 for No. 2 hard, 95c0$l.O2 for No. 1, and 90095c for No. 2. Oats—S old steadily at 34c for No. 2; 35c for No. 2 white, and 33c for rejected.

From a Speech at New York. What I have seen and heard daring my stay among you has forced on me the belief that this slow change from habitu inertness to persistent activity has reached an extreme from which there must begin a counter cliango—a reaction. Everywhere I have been struck jvUb the number of faces which told ÎH jJt rong lines of the burdens that hatP^to be berne. I have been struck, too, with the large proportion of gray-haired men, and inquiries have brought out the fact that with you the hair con^monly be gins to turn some ten years earlier than with us. Moreover, in every circle I have met men who had themselves suffered from nervous collapses due to stress oi business or named friends who had either killed themselves by overwork or had been permanently incapacitated or had wasted long periods iu endeavors to recover health. I do but echo the opin ion of all the observant persons I have spoken to, that imruense injury is being done by this high pressure life —tho phy sique is being undermined. That subtle thinker and poet whom you have lately had to mourn, Emerson, says, in his essay on the gentleman, that the first re quisite is that he shall be a good animal. The requisite is a general one—it ex tends to the man, to the father, to the citizen. We hear a great deal about the "vile body;" transgress the laws of health. But nature quietly suppresses those who treat thus disrespectfully one of her highest products, and leaves tho world to be peopled by the descendants of those who are not so fyollsh. Beyond these immediate mischiefs there are remoter mischitfa. Exclusive devotion to work has the result that amusements cease to please; and, when relaxation becomes imperative, life be comes weary from lack ofitspole interest, the interest in business. The remark current in England that, when the American travels, his aim is to do the greatest amount of sight-seeing in the shortest time, I find current here also. It is recognized that the satisfaction of getting on devours nearly all other satisfactions. When recently at Niagara, which gave us a whole week's pleasure, I learned from the landlord of the hotel that most Americans come one day and go away the next. Old Froissart, who said of the English of his,(Lay that "they take their pleasures sadly after the#r fashion," would doubtless, if he lived now, say of the Americans that they take their pleasures hurriedly after their fashion. In large measure with us, and «till more with you, there is not that abandonment to the moment which is requisite for full enjoyment, and this abandonment is prevented by the, ever present sense of mutlitudinous phy sical mischief caused by overwork, there is the further mischief that it destroys what value there would otherwise he in the leisure part of life. Nor do the evils end here. There Î3 the injury to posterity. Damaged con stitutions reappear in children and en tail on them far more of ill than great fortunes yield them of good. When life has been duly rationalized by science it will be seen that among a man's duties care of the body is imperative, not only out of regard for personal welfare, but also out of regard for his immediate descendants. His constitu tion will be considered as an entailed es tate, which ought to pass on uninjured, if not improved, to those who follow, and it will be held that millions be queathed by him will not compensate for feeble health and decreased ability to enjoy life. Once more there isthein jury to fellow-citizens, taking the shape of an undue disregard of competitors. I hear that a great trader among you de liberately endeavors to crush oat every one whose business competed with hia own; and manifestly the man who, making himself a slave to accumulation, absorbs an inordinate share of the trade for profession he is engaged in making it harder for all others engaged in it and excludes from it many who might otherwise gain competencies. ArteinusWaril to tiie Yonngr La dies sit the Seminary. Arteraus Ward, after delivering a lec ture once in New London, Conn., was •asked by the principal of a young ladies' high school in the place to pay a visit to her institution the next day. He went away like "an amoosin cuss," and made the girls a speech. While walk ing to the academy a street runaway occurred. A terrified horse went tear ing over the pavement, with what Arte mtis called "the forequarters" of a wagon clattering at his heels. This incident Artemus ingeniously utilized in hia address. Said he: The vehicular elopement which has just taken place, young ladies, has just furnished us with a timely topic of dis course. Young ladies' seminaries are ever exposed to runaways. Once when traveling with my show, I came upon a female institute. There were ladders, atul lads too, as to that, at every win dow. Many perpendiculars carrying fainting horizontals to the ground. "Fire!" I shouted. "None of that," re plied a solemn voice from the orchard. "There ain't no fire ; these are only young fellows running off with their sweet hearts.". There is moral entertainment for man and beast in this runaway. No horse if attached to a wagon, that is, if sincerely attached to it, will run away with it, but the more a young man is at tached to a young woman, the more he will run away with lier, leaving, no trace, in fact none of the harness behind. Young ladies, since I have stood before your beautiful faces I have lost some thing, and if you or the boy that sweeps out should lind a red object look ing like a coral breast-pin that has been stepped on, you may know it is my poor busted heart. Truth in the Lime-Kilu Club. From the Detroit Free Press.

The auditor in his report condemns the appropriation of a sum gross for the entert »inment of the board visitors for the naval academy, and he makes out a good case by citing several items in tiie last bill. In this interesting bill of particulars appear liquors, wine and mineral water, $589; cigars, $252; news pa papers, $41. The fourth auditor has the call on the visiting committee.
