"How will you do it, Mr. Seoretary of

there was reserved to her for souool
purposes every sixteenth and thirty
sixth suctlou of every township in the

tory had been set apart by tbe Govern
ment as Indian reservations. Lately
these reservations have been oe led back

BAD FOR NKW ORLEANS.
The committee, examining into tbe
Custom-house affairs ol New Orleuus,
make the discouraging statement that
in former years its business was one
hundred aud fifty per cent greater than
at present. It also costs a larger per

other cities. Mtfre than one-ual! the
merchandise arriving there is trans
ported in unbroken packages to interior
r foreign ports. The lacts snow oauiy
for the present prosperity of the Cres
cent City. There is to be an immediate
reduction in the number ot employes
equal to twenty-bve per cent. Many of
the employes are incompetent, having
received appointments ior political ser
vices alone. Tbe Committee insist 011 a
rigid application of the new civil serv
ice rules to that city.

Duchess of Marlborough on Monday lett
Mount Stewart, County Down, tbe seat
of tbe Marquis of Londonderry, and
drove across to Dangor. They there
went on board the steamer Antrim aud
sailed to Lame, where they ware re
ceived with loud cheers by a vast as
semblage 011 the pier. Hs Grace was
presented with au address by the Town
Commissioners. The Viceregal party
then proceeded 10 the spacious edifice
close to the harbor, where tuey met a
large aud lashiouuble company at
luncheon. The chair was occupied by
Mr. James Champ, M.F. The Chair
man proposed ''Tue Lord Lieutenant,
and Piosperity to Ireland." The toast
was received most enthusiastically, and
in responding his Grace referred al
length to the wurmtu ot tbe reception,
which had been accorded him iu the
north of Ireland, which reception, he
said, was peculiarly Welcome so soon
alter his arrival in Irelautl. The Vice
regal party afterwards traveled along

and declared the Ballymena and Larue
Railway opened. The Lord Lieutenant
and her Grace then proceeded to Suane's
Castic, the scut of Laid O'Neill, wuere

Irish Prosperity The IHth report of
the Local Government Board in Ireland
snows that the poor-law system is being
carried out with the utmost attention to
economy, and the number of paupers,
indoor, last year was a little over lot ly -three
thousand, the smallest number
ever registereu. A slight iuorease took
place in those receiving oul-door reliel,.
but this was in cousequeuce ol an in
creasing desire to ex end it to all per
manently disabled from age or sickness,
and to widows with legitimate ouildren.
The recent increase iu the lolal expen
diture is accounted lor by tue sum 01

increased saiaiics ol uaiional school
teachers, and a charge of 11 070 under

come within the purposes, ior whucu
loans cau by this easy process be ob
Lamed. The Commissioner report more
favorably than iu the lormer year of tnu
working ot the Pub iu Health Act. The
total expenditure on Irian Poor Laws,
lor all purposes whatsoever, was
1,000,OOJ yearly. A lewer number died
in the woidv-uuuse hospital s lhau in any
