This state of a Hairs went nloiijr smoothly for about two years, the onterprisinu: teller enjoying dU t ho privileges as to coupons of a oloateil hondhohler. Shortly after the Obey Owen ilefaleation became public, tho directors hii'l a swlilon spasm of vigilance, ami one ilay, without a ino cncnl's warning they ealleil upon tho a'ller for his keys, ami were about to institute a count of cash.

I will jrivc 'you my written fesinii.ition, iioconlinj; to tin; terms of our "contract, but you shall not have the keys to the safe." The gentlemen were taken complete ly by surprise, ami knew not what to say or ilo. Arrest was threatened, but the teller was obdurate, and the Direc tors finally withdrew to talk the matter over. This jjave him his chance, and slipping out with the surreptitiously purchased bonds he speedily converted them into cash, and the ri;j;lit amount was deposited in the vaults. I5y that lime the objection to the surrender of the keys was removed and the Directors and the bondsmen, who had been non plussed and thoroughly frightened by the refusal, found their heaped-up thous ands secure, and the bank on as sound linaneial bed-rock as it had ever been. The fact that the teller had just disposed of a larie amount, of bonds, however, led to the discovery of the way in which ho had been u.simrtlio funds of the bank for his own einoliipient, and the resifr aation went into e fleet. During the time between the purchase and sale of the bonds, they had largely appreciated in value, so that during the transaction the teller had cleared between .."j0,000 and 00,000 from the rise in value and the coupons. The bank was none the poorer from the operation, and at tempts made to compel the employe to diso;or-e his prolits were unavailing.

If he had had tim nerve of the man from Arkansas, he would have subscribed himself a genius, or a man that turns the world upside down. There is unquestionably a reluctance on the part of all of us, whether poets, or American humorists, or men of ;en eral genius, for since I am not going to sign this paper, lam as bold as Snug the joiner, there is a reluctance, I say, on our part to lie elassilied. A guild of authors eould exist only as a mutual burial society; though there would seem to be many interests which authors might combine to defend or resist, as a matter of fact there is, I believe, but one literary club in the country which makes the authorship of books a condition of membership, and this Author's Club has been derided for its arrogance, as if it iverc another instance of the three tai lors of Tooley Street. When any move ment is to be made which affects the whole body of literary men, what mein Ler has the boldness to marshal his fel lows into any phalanx of remonstrants or petitioners? Kven in the matter of international copyright, the views of au thors have been reached only by indi vidual solicitation from publishing hous es or tradtf journals. The truth is that this individuality of authors, which seem to some to spring from jealousy or a suspicious habit ol mind, iti an essential characteristic t their vocation, ami a necessary result from the material conditions of their profession. There can be an associa tion of artiuU, with the object to main tain a school of painters, or to couduet on exhibition of paintings: thorn can bo an historical society to collect material for history, to diacuw and criticise his torical writings, and to priut papers, but there cannot bo anything more than a social basb for an authors league, be cause the individual interests of everv ...... .intlior are vastly civatur io mm man ..' m 11 . 1. . . the comliineil interests or. an Humors, but chiefly because there exists for him already a complement organization which no voluntary association with other authors could supply.

Hecause of the recent appearance among hursts ol tin dread and invariably latal disease known as glanders, and its alarm ing prevalence in some portions ot the State, something about its nature and means for preventing contagion may prove prolitable. A well known and thoroughly informed veterinary surgei n was inter viewed yesterday by a reporter for the Timcum this subject. He said: "Of all diseases among live stock this peculiar fin iu of glanders is the most to be dreaded. When an animal is afflicted with it there is absolutely no hope of recovery, and the only thing to be done is to limit it to the one patient if possible. This is rarely, it eve r, possible, however, for with great ra pidity the whole stable becomes infected, even to the building, harness and litter. In fact, everything iu the barn becomes pregnant with the germs of the disease, and it is almost impossible to eradicate them. There is only one sure way known to the profession, and that is to destroy all the horses, and then burn the stable with its entro contents. The attendants upon saicli eases very frequently contract the contagion, and it opera'es with as deadly effect upon a man as upon a hois:;. 15y the most systematic disinfection, however, a man may, witii comparative safety, treat eases of glanders, lie must make an abso lute change of clothing upon leaving the stable and take a thorough bath if he would not spread the disease or contract it him self." "How may the disease be detected iu Us pi unary stages?" "In the earlier Mages the symptoms are similar to those of ordinary distc.iuber, and it is very apt to be mistaken for that dis ease even by experienced veterinary sur geons. Within a tew ilays, however, the changes are very pronounced. The glands of the throat become swollen, and malig nant eating ulcers form in the nostrils. In a short tune a dropsical swelling of the joints appears, attended by ulcerations on the lymphatics ol the skin. The lungs finally becoiiv; intecte.l, followed by a d is trcs-ing cough, unit before long the ani mal dies." "How long has thediseasc been known to exist?" "For many years, but it appears period icaily. During the war cavalry hmses were killed by sroies liy glanders and It was no unusual o.-curreaee for the horses of an entire regiment to In: destroyed be fore the Contagion could !e checked." "Does the disease ever originate spon taneously '" "It is claimed by some thit it (Iocs ap pear without spicilic contagion, hut I iliink tliui such an idea is crrouc. us. I neer heard of a ease that originated with oiHihrict contact with a previous ca-e. To prevent contagion too much impor tance cannot he aitac!u d to a most rigid disinfection. It should be even more ex acting than in .smallpox." 'Do ou think the disease is liable toex ml lay o:ul the district at presjut infec ted?" "That vv ill depend entirely upon the care ihi.' in cserciscd by the people in tho-e districts. It is si cHsily transmitted in clothing and in almost any article that a quarantine is the only method that will insure absolute safety". Chiftyo Turn. James V.

Tlte N"'W Sugar Industrie. ll is estimated that the total b i t sugar product of the world tUis year w ill he 2, OT.j.UOO pouuds. Ot this amount Germany will produce 77.VIOO pounds, France 110, 000, Austria and Hungary 500,000, Russia JT.yoOt), IloiUud, etc., ;i.j,000 pounds. Our Pennsylvania colemporary "The Sugar licet" from which we quote, says tlmt no less than six new beet sugar factories will this year lit'gin operations in Russia. A letter from the beet sugar works at A I vard:, California, sys the last beet cam paign (the 4th) win not as successful as that of the preceding year on account of ruins, at a critical time, causing a second growth of bee's, thus redticiug the percent ago ol saccharine product. Profits, how over, were satisfactory. The letter is hope, ful in lone. The wi iter, who had just re turned frout a visit to the licet producing regions ol Kunpe snys: "I know i.y per sonal observation that we have a better soil and climate fur the production of sugar tieets than the most favored localities in Europe, and our beets if raised on soil adapted to their proper development, prop erly cultivated, will exceed in every part licular those raised In Europe. Hut our farmers must be educated t rti-e beets for sugar, ami our people must t,e taught to build factories and to undersUml fully the technical and gent-rel mauagenunt re quired to iMsnuf.icturc them into sugar in tne most economical manor before wp run hope to succeed to atiy creat extent in this country." He further remarks: "We art more firmly convinced than ever that by the exereise of common sense ami suffic ient capital we can produce the sugar need ed in the United States on eur own soil at as small a cost as in Europe. But in order to do this proper locations must be selected combining suitable noil, chenp fuel, and abundant supply of water; also there must be good technical and general manage ment. Without these failure is iucvituoic, and the lack of one or all of these, has the numerous failures in this ci'iintry " Information from the concern at WeM Funiham, Canada, while not conclusive and rather apologetic for not having real ized expectations, is by no means discour aging. "Considering the many total and partial failures that have overtaken the beet sugar enterprise in this country during the past twenty years the information here given bi-arsau air of encouragement that is not a little refreshing. As with sorghum, pro tress is slow, but the history ol the sugar industry with other nations, and at the South, shows as yet, no unfavorable com purtson tm the purl of the new Hurts.

Coronation of the Czar. The elaborate festivities at Moscow, Rus sia, in honor of the coronation of the Czar Alexander 111 , which commenced on the 10th of May, terminated on Sunday, the 'gTlh, in the gorgeous ceremonies of the coronation and anointment ol the new Czi'r and Czarina. The coronation occurred on Sunday, because it is strictly a religious rite, all the ceremonies being minutely pre scribed in the ritual ot the Greek Church. The event was ushered in on Sunday morn ing by the ringing of 1,000 bells ami the thunder of us many pieces of artillery. The ceremonies took place in the great Cathedral of the Kremlin, and as compar atively few ot our readers, we imagine, were there t: witness them, a brief distrip lion may not be without interest. The large city dailies Lave been tiiled w ith from two to ten columns a day, for a week past, but the following brief extract covers the central point: The services commencal as enriV as S o'clock a.

The court and other olllcials, foreign ministers, and distinguished per sonages from all parts of the Empire and principal nations of the world having as sembled in the uaiiieurui, mo i.zar ami Czarina entered the Cathedral, walking under a canopy to the dais. The Emperor wore a General's uuilurm und the Order ot St. Andrew, lie looked calm and self pos sessed. The Empress wore a silver brocade robe, bordered with ermine. After the pro cession had filed through the Cathedral and all had taken tho places assigned to limn, T1IK COllONATION SliHVICES began. The Metropolitans ot Movogorod and Iviell'e presented the Imperial pair with a cross to be kissed und sprinkled with holy water, tlrst bv the Emperor and then by the Empress. Rel'ore the sacred images which Hanked the doors ot the ( athedral they kneit and bowed their heads, after which they were conducted to the ancient thrones of ivory and silver. Alter their Majesties had been stalled, the Metropoli tan of Novogorod asked the Emperor In a loud and distinct vo.ee: "Are you a true believer?" The Emperor, lulling on his knees, read in reply in a clear yoic.; the Lord's prayer and the Apostlea' creed ol the Greek "Church, the Metropolitan res ponding: "May the grace ot the Holy Ghost remain with thee." Descending from the dais, the following customary summons was then three times repeated by the Bishop: It there be anv ol Vim hero nrescnt be any ol you hero knowing any linpeillineui lor WHICH Alex- under, son ol Alexander, should not be crowned by the grace of God Empereror ami Autocrat ot all the Kussias,ot .Moscow, t Kiell'e. of Vladimir, of NovoL'orotl.

The Emperor was then invested iu the Imperial mantle of ermine, the Metropoli tan of Moskow saying at the same tune, "Come and protect thy people as this robe protects and covers thee."

Green drive well patent, is probably a tnlle ' too previous;" besides that the decision, if sustained, would really involve a gross injustice. This at least is how it looks if the following history of the invention, as given by the Sri,-iitJi-- .nurt'sun, is cor rect : I lie invention ot the drive well was made in ltll, by Nelson V. Green, an ot ticer in one or the New York regiments then serving in the war. There was a rumor that the enemy had poisoned thej wells, in make sure ot a pure supply ot water lor his own regiment, anil lor the L'nion forces generally, wherever they might march, lie conceived the idea ot driving into the earth small tubes ot iron, perforated at the bottom, and attaching a pump to the upper end of the tube. He reasoned Hint, when the pump was worked and suction produced, the water would rise in the tube, and thus serviceable wells might be made anywhere, by a tew min utes' work, at small cost. His invention was foun t to he completely successful, was immediately adopted m tin: army, and our troops seldom lacked for good water wher ever it was practical to drive down Colonel Ureen's tubes. From the army the inven tion quickly spread through this country, then to foreign countries; it was adopted by the llntish army; it is now au adjunct of the military equipments of all nations, and is in common use throughout the world. Tho patent to Col. Green was not issued to nun until lsijS, owing io the inability of the inventor to attend to the business of taking tin; patent until alter his relations with the army were llnally closed. Such, in brief, is the history of the drive well patent. It is one of the most useful inven tions of the day, ami has eonlcrrcd vast benefits upon the people of this country and the world m general. When Col. Green received his patent, he became entitled to demand conipensa tion for the use of his invention from that time onward for seventeen years, and he es tablished a general tarilf or patent fee of ten dollars for each well made iu accord ance with his discovery. Many thousands ot the (Ircen drive wells were put into use belore his patent was granted; tor such prior use he could make no claim; but for the continued use of these wells after the grant of the patent, he was entitled to de mand payment. There are regions of country where ev ery farmer lias from one to ten of the Green wells on llu'ir premises; where, in fact, people have them in their kitchens, cellars, yards and fields; wherever they want water they drive a tube and put on the pump. These people knew nothing about the patent when they put iu the wells; and the ippearaneeot the patentee s agents, asking mr ten nonius pa) mem on (,atai nine, mi the threat of a law suit if payment was re fused, naturally excites surprisu ami indig nation. They feel as if their rights as American citizens were being invaded.
