is true that General Lebouz intends to
drop the scheme of a Garde Mobile and
propose the suppression of general com

At certain specified hours each day, the
'member*-of tha—Exchange assemble in
their room to buy and sell gold. None but
members are admitted to these privileges,
though a gallery is set apart in which spec
tators may locate themselves to witness tho
transactions. The president, or.ino of.tho

and constantly announce the fluctuations
of tho market. Another ingenious tele
graphic arrat gemont flashes the tidings of
every change instantaneously into all tho
principal bankers' and brokers',offices in
the street, recording the information in a
legible manner on au endless slip of paper.

an Outsider, all ia confusion, and the spec
tator is utterly unable to distinguish a
single word in the deafening medley of
voices. One calls out, "I waut fifty thou
sand at an eighth another. '.'A quarter
for twenty-five thousand." 'Sold," cries a
voice from the .opposite side of tho room.
"Twenty thousand at a half," is«houtsd.
"Give three-eighths,'' c6mes from another
source. "Make it fifty and sold," shouts
another. Done," cries the first voice
And so it goes on for ab.hour or more.
To render this intelligible, it must be re
membered that these dealera in sterling

than the money they buy and sell. They
never repeat the full prioe they give or take,
but merely the fraction abovo the unit, un
less the raise makes a full cent Thns, if
the last rate was 131. a man offering or ask
ing "an eighth" is understood to offeror
ask 1311-8. So with a quarter, a half, five
eights or seven-eights. If the last price
was 131 7-8, and a dealer wishes to advance
to 132, he cries out, "Tliirty-two," or more
frequently only "Two."

Mr. Smith may remain the nominal owner
of $500,000 gold as long as he pleases. He
is "long" to that amount. When he thinks
gold will advance no higher, he orders his
broker to seH. The broker sells, we will
suppose, at 135, and realizes $675,000 in
currency. With this sum he first pays his
loan at the bank, and receives back the cer

Atthe same time the prOceBsion entered,
preceded by one of the young pupils of the
convent bearing the processional cross.
First, came, the white veiled novices, and
alter them the professed, each carrying a
wax light. Passing slowly up the asile they
entered the choir, and took weir respective
places on either side. Lastly came tho
young aspirants in their bridal attire. They
knelt in front of the altar, and each recei\«

had been previously blessed. The bishop

which each aspirant in turn demanded the
habit of the order. They then retired, ac

orange blossoms were exchanged for the
black habit of the order. Approaching the

The Catastrophe at Broadbrook, Conu.—
Seven Lives Lost.
The Hartford. Courant of the 6th gives
the following graphic account of the ter
rible scenes at Broadbrook, Conn.:
At about 2| o'clock Monday afternoon,
the breaking away of Belcher Fond, just
this side of Ellington, sent a terrible flood
of water down upon the Beaseley dam, half
a mile below* which was instantaneously
swept away, and the roaring torrent thus
formed soon Btruck the upper dam of the
Broadbrook Company, tearing out one side
first, and gradually sweeping around the
outer-works, brought np agawst.the stone
bridge, which was tornfromitp sound foun
dations, andthen carrieaoff the lower dam
and the machine shop dam still further
down. Just- below the lower dam stood
what was called the'told factory building,
which waa occupied betyw as a shoe shop
and above for Unement purposes. The wa
ter, which had passed uound the outer
portion of. the lower dam, flooded thenorth
side of this building before any of the in
mates were aware of their danger. So sud
den was the breaking of the dams that no
one in the neighborhood apprehended dan
ger till the deluge with ita overwhelming,
force came rtithing madly down :Jipou
them and there waa no spare time
to. provide for the safety of anything which
atood in the ifcy of the torirent. In the
tenement-house were Albert Shephard, a
young man Charles Davenport, Mrs. Kil
oonners, andr two children—one a girl of
eight yeaia and the other a babe a child of
Mrs. Watkins, asleep in the basement also,
a child of Mrs. Fitzgeraild in the -second
story, two boys in the lower part of the
•building, and two mon-^eleven jn all. Mr.
Shephard, Mr. Davenport Mrs. 'Kilcon
ners, with the latter'a children, stood in
the doorway of an ell, and several men. got
into ashed neir by'Mid threw a rope to them,
which was caiight andfastened to a partition
iasid^ Shephard then started'to crosathe
rope by going hand over hand, uid had got
about naif way over when the main part of
tho buildup went to pieces, being crushed!
a spectator cays, "like an, egg Mell," and
the concussion was so great, though the
rope held to its place, tbat he lost his hold
and fell into the gulf below, and passed,
from sight His body was found in the
pond, about ten rods distant, yesterday
morning. Davenport was still standing in
the doorway when the shock took place, and
he fell into the water, but swam ashore.
Mrs. Kilconnera and her children went
down with the. ell, and their bodies were
found in it when the flood subsided. The
child sleeping in the basement and the one
in the second story were drowned. A man
in the third story escaped. About five
minutes after the building waa demolished,
a spot ol bare ground and a portion of the
foundation appeared, and, to the surprise
of everybody, two m*n appeared, having
crawled from beneath a mass of broken
timber. One waa a German and the other
ait Irishman, and the latter, though
but just escaped from death, attd
still perilously situated, took out his pipe,
and in one minute's time wss quietly smok
ing aa if notking had happened I Beyond
the tin shop, a man, woman and child were
overtaken by the flood, and awept away,
but fortunately lodged by a fence and wore
saved. All the bodies of those drowned—
seven in all—were recovered yesterday, ex
cepting the child of Mrs. Fitzgerald, and
the daughter of Mrs. Kilconnera. The lat
ter's husband was at work in the mill, and
.witnessed the sad calamity. His case is a
peculiarly distressing one. He came to
this oountry last year, and commenced
work for the Broadbrook Company in
August, and* having saved a little sum of
money, sent to Ireland for his wife and
children, who reached here last July. Only
a little girl is left to him she was at play
when the building was surrounded, and
thus was saved. When the water first be
gan to make in the ell of tho building, two
boys—the. eldest sixteen years of ago—
were on the first floor, and got on to
the shelves in a pantry, going
higher as tho wutor gained, till they had
reached the upper shelf. Hero it WAS life
or death with tnom, bnt the eldest, making
a desperate effort, pushod his head through
tho coiling above, and both were enabled
to work their way to the upper floors, where
they remained about two hours till taken
oft' on a raft. Each received considerable
injury ono having a bad cut in his ankle,
and the other a severe bruiso iu his wrist
The damage to tho property of tho Broad
brook company will be considerable.

Tho questions of the day have all been
comparatively silenced by.that The Bish

—even the monarchy itself, h^ve all shrunk
into temporary insignificance' before the
all-absorbing question of Cuba and the
sudden convictum amongst the people that,
if Cuba is not already ':lost she is inighty
near it. Now that the veil of secresy is
partially removed, and the danger made
evident, there is aroused a strong reeling of
patriotism, and the most energetic meas
ures are to be adopted to "crush the insur

upon the result of the efforts now about to

of Marshal Serrano at one of tbo.,sittings

there were two insurrections there, the
"material" and the "moraland that long
after Spain had overcome the first, she
would have to contend with the second.
At any rate, the natibh 'has resolved upon
ono supreme, concentrated effort, which,is
to be directed against the material insur
rection, leaving the- moral insurrection to
be dealt with hereafter. ,• All, this is owing
to General Sickles. He has attained a no

Among these mountains there lived for
ages undisturbed the Indian god Ulala.
On the little plain near by stood his wig

shone into this mountain fortress. A little
beyond the plain, surrounded by towering
walls of granite, its waters cool as an Al

fair bdsom he paddled his' light- canoe
from its sparkling depths, with a line of
sinews, he drew the. frisky trout along,its
pebbled shores he chased the timid deer,
or sped his jasper-headed arrow swift to the'
very heart of the imprudent stag, which, in
native Vanity sported with its mirrored self
along the briuk of its quiet waters and
ever, when the shades of evening fell, he
loved to idmmune With his departedbraves.
Whose spirits, as if conscious of the •sur
rounding grandeur, still .lingered on the
misty mountain-tops, there fo^repeat again
and again his every call.
For bis people he exercised a paternal
care.' He told them whete was found' the
evergreen'hemlock from which their bows
were made ho.pointed out to them the
bidden paths among the mountains he
taught tuem the medicinal properties of
plants, how to bind up wounds, and by
whatmagic to drive away evil spirits he
explained to them tho mysteiy of their ori

wards which awaited only the brave in the
land of the Hereafter.

Fever was ever checked by his simple medi

ian paper gives the following anecdote of
Couut Bismarck: Tho peasants on tho
Count's estate had got into the bad habit
of working on Sundays. The Count heard
of it, and wrote to the bailiff, "There must
bo an end of that." The bailiff answered,
"The people are not to blame. Six days,
from morning to evening, they havo to
work on tho estate, and yet tliey have their
own bit of land to look after, and so they
havo only Sunday loft to do it
in." But the Count will not listen
to snob excuses, nnd writes
back From this time forward
anew order is to be introduced. When
my people havo land, and their corn IN
ripe, they are to begin with their own first."
The bailiff informs the peasants of tho
Count's commands, nnd adds, "Bnt now no
more work
Sundays." The result is that
the peasants say to each other, "The inas
teudiall not lose a farthing by caring for
ns first, so let us work with a will," and
they do it, too. Novor.was tho work done
so well nnd so rapidly, and tbo bailiff could
writo to tho Count a few days afterward,
"That waa a capital hit, nnd nobody has
had moro advantago from it than we. It
was all finished in tho twinkling of an eye,"

SUOAB FOB HOUSES.—A gentleman, .'in
New York is the possessor of: a $1,000
horse, whose organ for approbativenees ls
so- prominently-, active that he can4 be
coaxed,. but rarely driven- against his will.
When the considerate owner enters the sta
ble the hone greets him with a hearty
whinny, his only language, which is equal
to a cheerful expression-of delight. Hals
at once treated to a lump ofloaf sugar,
whioh the beautiful and. sagacious creature
knows is usually carried in a .vest pocket-7
for he rubs his nose directly in there.' On
returning from a drive he! expected two
lumps. As two are.invariably forthcoming
when unharnessed, it is uhmistakeable evi
dence to the horse that bis conduct and ef
forts were satisfactory. The sight of a
whip to that animal would be an insult and
an, outrage to his affectionate regard, for
one who looks carefully to his health, secu
rity and comfort. Such' an instrument of
barbarity does, not belong to that good
man's carriage and may God speed the in

HOMEOPATHY.—The sixth edition of
Hahneman's Organoo, containing the prin
ciples of this science, has just appeared in
Germany, edited by the distinguished Dr.
Lutze of Coethen, who enjoys the highest
and most lucrative practice of any Home

the school, because Dr. Lutze has restored
two paragraphs whioh he claims were sup
pressed in tlio publication of the last edi
tion of the Organon in 1833. These para
graphs authorize the combination of two
or moro medicines in a single prescription
and show the procedure to have been known
and sanctioned by Hahueman. Hence, Ho

tors, both in Europe and Ameria, are vie
in{( with each in endeavoring to suppress
this medicinal heresy there.
