Iad the earth Been .l.ashed with blood of grapcs from every edie, Tinted from topel to dim carbuncle, Or orient ruby, it would not have been Drenched with such waste of rolor. All the bass The rainfow known, and all that meet the eye In tflowers of field and garden, joined to tell Each tree's dose folded secret. Side by haid Rose sister maples ; some in amber gold, Others incarnadlinc or tipped with flano: And oaks that for a hundred years hbad stood And flouted one another through the storms. Boating their might-proclalmed their pique or pride In dun, or dyes of Tyre. The sumac leaves .linted with such scarlet that the crimson fruit Which hung among their lames was touched to guse of dim and dying embers; while the bills That met the sky at the horison's rim Dabbled with r ne amonu the evergrseaa, Or stretching of in swoops of clouted crimeon-glowed As If the archway of sunset clouds, By squads and fierce battalion*, had rained down Its barbed and feathered fire, and left It last To advertise the exploit. --Fhro Dr. Hollaad's ". r.atrt."

Dear little Dsmp4l, we eld4r folks, too, irop our old treasures to reach for the new. Bcfeuwe of tne Rocky Molnutains. At the recent meeting of the American 8cientflc Association, Prof. C. C. Parry read a paper on the Rocky Mountami Alpine re gion, which attracted much attention: lie said that the Rocky Mountain Alpine region was of special interest on account of its extensensivenss as compared with anything which they had in the East. Hitherto It tlad been mostly inaccessible, bat now that railways were making it accessible, further exploration would reveal its tisra, and tihus it could be compared nith ahe Alpine flora of Europe. The woody belt of caniferous trees begin at an average elevalicn of 6,000 feet. Its densest growth was at between 7,000 and 9,000 feet elevation, and its termi nation waes at an average height of 11,800 feet. The superficial extent of these bare Alp ino exposures in Colorado Terr.tory had been ruglily estimated at from 1,200 to 1, 500 square miles. After a brief al!useon to the fau.ta of the region, the paper stated that when accessible it would doubtless af tfod a favorite resort for summer pasturage and eventually yield choice dairy products, equalling those of the Swiss Alps, and pro duce delicate fibrous tissues rivalling tl' tee of the looms of Cashmere. As a summer resort it was unexcelled in the purity of its atmosphere, and clearnessof its streams, and its picturesque and extended views. Professor W. H. Dall road a paper on the Trend of the Rocky Mountain range, north lattitude 60 n, and its Influence on Faunal Distribution. The paper stated that the Rocky Ihountaln range, between lattitudes 50 o and 64 , bends trending with the east. ern coast; so that Instead of there being, as represented on the old maps. a straight line of mountains up the Arctie Sea, there is an elevated plateau, only broken occasionally by a very few ranges of hills. This bend of the mountains prevents the characteristie birds of the west coast coming north, while the eastern birds come chkar to Behring's Sea, north of it. over the plateau. He also stated that the elevation of the bottom of Jkhring's Straits 180 feet would make dry land betwen Asia and America, but that a deep ociso valley astended southwest fro. Plover Day, just west of the Straits, along the Kamtchatka eosst.

That the buimtbs esmunity begins to undeseaad the refoer Is shown by the fact that the Boards of Trade or Chambers of ommerscs of thes *liking cities have unanimously reoe ed i l e ror:-Borston, Philadelpdua, Dldtmos, Ne*a Orleans, BL Louis, Obicago, Clann.t Providence, Satvannh, Mobile.

The present legislative body of Franc consists of about 900 memaberse Of thes. 250 are decorated with the Legion et Honor only forty members are without this order. Soie of these are too young for it. There are nine grand o.eers, one of whom is tfpe celebrated M. Thiers. deputy, journalistl pamphleteer, essayist, orator, politician, Ktatessman. and historian. He wasdecorated thirty years ago by King Louis Philliprse In the Legislative Chamber there are eight other Knights of the Grand Cross, who are privileged to wear a star on the left breast, with a red ribbon. There are twenty-seven commanders, who display a large white ea amel eross, banging from a narrow ribbon round the neck. There are ninety-nine of icers, wearing asmallcross withl gold moun tings drooping from a rosette at the left bnt ton-hole. There are 114 simple Knight., with a cross in silver mounting attached to a strip of ribbon. Except on State ocasions, the actual insignia areurely worn. A small bit of red riband tied to the butoton-lmoe on the left, or a little red rosette, (denoting superior rank,) is all that is worn going through Paris. No one dare wear a earna tion in in his button-hole. because, at a little distance, it might deceive the eye and be taken or mistaken for the red ribbon of the order. The military have to salute, as he passes by each one who has a bit of red rib bon in his button-hole. The penalty for wearing the ribbon without being entitled to it is very severe. In 1802, when Napoleon was First Consul and there yet remained the name, and ome thing of the form of a French Republic,be founded the Order of the Legion of Hono-r to recompense military and elvil services. Originally there were three clas;cE-Grand ofB.eers, commanders, and legionaries. On Napoklon's coronation, 1804, ho divided the first class into Knights of the Grand Eagle and Grand Officers. On Napoleon's fall. in 1814, the Bourbons retained, but remodeled the order, changing the eagle into a eross, and substituting the effigy of Henry IV for that of Napoleon. In 1817 oficrs were in troduced. Under the present Ensperor it has regained most of its original features. The cross has ton points of white enamel, edged with gold. These points are connected with a wreath of laurel proper,iand in the centre, which is chased with his name and title, is is a head of the present Emperor. The cross is connected with the imperial crown of France, in gold, and worn attached to a red ihbbon The number of decorated persons Is great. In 18ti there were O.GO0; but salce 1851 only one nomination has been made for every two extinct ones. Still it is estimated that over 50.000 persons are possessed of the Or der. Some of the number receive pensions, and as much as $ 1,900,000 have been paid, on this account fn a sitgle year. No ignoble punishment can be inficted on a member of the Order, while he belongs to it. No Frcacbhan can reach a higher grade with out passing through each lower one. The Emperor is Grand Master. There are estab lishments for the daughtens, wives, and sis ters of the members, The education is very superior, and something like military dhci iline is nmantaJnod. This is a cheap way of eutisfying suiters. The Cross of the le glon of Honor is greatly desired by allclasus es in France--even the Republicans do not disdain it, declaring that the Order was founded before the Emnplr was established. Sometimes very poor persons are entitled to wear the insignia; few wear the cruoss, escept on great occasions, but 80.000 per. sons wear the little bit of red ribbon. "An Earthquwake VOmtCbnr . A Caljeorai &8aent predicts a HMesy &*-k ing-up of Thi'agena &epresbsar or Octobser. The San Francisco Chronecle publishes the following prediction made by a loca philosopher, W. Frank Stewart: Durinw the past eighteen months the earth and other planets completed the most re markable conjunction which has ever oc curred ; and on the night of the 14th of last November we again Witnessed the grand thirty four-year star-swarm. Every intelli gent person is aware that for a period of nearly two years our globe has been subject. ed to violent perturbations, such as have not before occurred for many centuries. These perturbations have been generally over the surface of the planet. Storms, typhoons, volcanoes. earthMeaues. Intense cold. and sorching winds have alternately spent their fury upon the denioens of every hemisphere. By careful observation, astronomes have found that in a period of about eleven year the san turns towards us a remsarkably spot ted disc, and it has also been observed that any sudden changes of light and shade upon the sun during this spotted period nlstantly a.ect terrestrial magnets. It i. well known that an the autumn of 1869 one of thubespot perturbations was mmediately followed by one of the most brilliant Aurora Borealis ever witnessed nla the northern hemisphere; and still more surprislag the magnetic Bseet of the aurora was s great that ssumgs were freely sent over telegraphic aUes with ot connection with the bettries, and by means of the amoral current alone.

Dur. ing the month of August the decrease of the debt was $8,00.38479. The aggregate de crease since the lst of March, 1800. Is $49, 800,758. The amount of bonds held to the credit of the sinking fund, Including accrued Interest, was $14,6.0,880. The amount of other bonds purchased and held subject to the future action of Congress was $3,811, 085, The coin in the Treasury was $101, 214,966.71. The currency balance in the Treasury was $18,144487.10 as against $8s, 881,654 for the corresponding period of the previous month. This decrease of currency Is explaioed.by the fact that $11,000,000, to be paid out during the present month, has been charged to the pension account. The increase of coin in the Treasury during the past month amounts to $11.161,688. The gold certificates issued by the govern ment amount to $23.847,580. Deducting this from the coin in the Treasury, we have $77,567,486.71 of coin left. The coin Inter est that has accrued, but has not yet ma taured for payment, is $8.96,,599.84. This leaves $41,006,886.87 of surulus coin n tihe Treasury over and above the gold certifi cstes and all the accrued interest. Mouxon XrorALrrt'r.-If the statements just now current, about the mortality among the children of the Mormon polygamists are reliable, they are certainly very noteworthy. It is said that the entire death rateo among the Mormous of all ages, is greater than that of the city of New York, or even of Now Orleans, which Is probably the most un healthy city in the United States. Of 60 deaths in Salt Lake pity, in one month, 44 were of children. And these, it is notice able, are not so much the children of the poorer saints, who are compelled to content themselves with a single wife or so, but of the rich and prosperous "apoetles" and *elders." Thus Heber Kimball, one of the very elect, has lost 48 children out of his family of 68 children. Another dignitary has lost 28 children, another 20, and a third 17; and the famous Joe Smith, the father and founder of Mormonism, with his six wives, leaves to the world only two sons to uphold his name and defend his fame. Now all this looks very much as though the laws of Nature as well as the word of God were against polygamy. Noau Gap.uasorrr.-The Richmond, (V.A.) J.uraal of late date says: A colored man in this city some eighteen years ago bought hia freedom of his master, and, working bard, early and late, soon was able to buy his wife. He has been prosper ing since, and he now owns the finest livery and hack stand in the State. His fortune is estimated at about q$0,000. His old master. who. at the time of the evacuation of Rich mond, was worth half a million, became ru ined. The former slave, being apprised of the misfortunes of his old master, took him to his house add gave him everything he de sired. Shortly after this the olJ man died. His funeral was alarge and expensive one, and be was borne to lot in the cemetery paid for by his old slave, who also paid for his funeral outlay. Over him was raised a handsome monument, paid for with the col ered man's money. The widow of the de ceased slave owner lives in a house present ed by the colored man, who also supplies her with overy comfort. ExrraAoanrDAn SnL IxmOLATrIO. The following statement appears in the Pat Mae (Giesse: All the extraordinary proceedings of the many fanatical sects whose rapid increase has excited so much anxiety in Russia, are fairly thrown into the shade by a terrible act of self-imnolation which is reported from the government of Saratow. A few months ago the prophets of a new religion made their appearance in that part of the empire, preaching self-destruction by fre as the only sure road to salvation; and soread ily was their dreadful doctrine received by the ignorant and superstitious peasantry that in ope large village no less than seventeen hundred persons assembled in some wooden houses, and, having barricaded the doors and windows, set the buildings on Are and perished lan the ames. The authorities are doing all they can to stay the progress of this new madness, but their task is obviously a dAlcult one. The punishments which the law can inflict must have little terror for en thusiasts who deliberately choose a death so horrible as the true roa4 to heaven.

How is it that the latter county is able to poll some 800 more votes than the former? Perhaps the number of tax pay ers in Lewis and Clark might enlighten us upon this subject, and we trust the Berad will not be slow to announce a fact so Im portant in the proposed investigation. A further fa,.t is disclosed by those fig ures which our neighbors of Lewis and Clark should ponder over. The aggregate assessment of Madison, Deer Lodge, Galla. tin and Missoula (counties which voted for the retention of the Capital at Virgina) for the present year is $8,770,800; thatof Lewis and Clark, Moagher and Jefferson (which yoted for Helena) is $p,870,00--showing that the property holders of the Territory who voted for Virginia owned 1,407.777 more in assessable wealth than those who voted for Helena. In this estimate we set off Uhouteau and Beaverhead, though the assessment of thelatter is much greater than that of the former county.-RepubUoan. Spurgeon's Aduice Gratis. Nobody is more like an honest man than a thorough rogue. When you see a man with a good deal of religion displayed in his shop window, you may depend upon it he keeps a very small stock of it within. Do not choose your friend by his leeks, handsome shoes often pinch the feet. Don't be fond of compliments; remember "Thank you, pussy, and thankyou, pussy," killed the cat. Don't beheve the man who talks most; for mewing cats are very seldom good mousers. By no means put yoursulf in another man's power; if you put your thumb be tween two grinders, they are very apt to bite. Drink nothing without seeing it; sign nothing without reading it, and make sure it means no more than it says. Don't go to law unless you have nothing to lose; lawyer's houses are built on fool's heads. In any business do not wade into water where you cannot see bottom. Put no dependence upon the label of a bag; and count money after your own kin. See the sack open before you buy what is in it; for he who trades in the dark asks to be cheated. ACI."NT P.Dl r.sR..sx. -lesading the gossiping annals of English sporting life, one discovers that there were 'waiklsts" In the last century as well as this. I'edestrians used to undergo a course of treatment that the constitution of a horse would scarcely be able to bear. First physic was administered in huge and frequent doses; then followed *'sweating down." until, Instead of elastic muscles and cheerful activity, the "trainee" looked weary and downcast, and quite inca pable of a "spurt" when the pinch came. One of the latest of the last century walking celebrities was Foster Powell, a Yorkshire man, and an attorney's clern in the New Inn. His fleetnes of foot first became know when he performed a journey of 804miles in six days. In 1778 he performed a similar journey for a wager of 100 guineas, making still quicker time, and covering on the first day 68 miles, on the second 79, on the thiud 89, on the fourth 55, on the fifth 84, and on the sixth 5. In November, 1778, he at tempted to ran two miles in ten minutes, but failed by thirty seconds. He made still quicker time on several occasons afterward, and would certainly have been a formidable competitor for the pedestrians of to-day, If he had just been born a few score of years later.
