On Wednesday evening of last week
the steamer Stonewall caughtfirewhile
on the Mississippi river, about one
hundred and thirty-five miles below St.
Louis, from a candle which the deck pas
sengers had near some bay whilo play
ing cards. There being so muoh hayloons,
on board, the boat burned like tinder.
The pilot ran the steamer on a gravel
bar, supposing the passengers could
wade ashore, but a slough at one endmorrow
prevented, and it was here that most
were drowned. Cout of two hundred and
fifty-two passengers over two hundred
CO-OPXBATIVX housekeeping is one
of the sensations of the period. Its
raeoess in any one desirable particular
remains yet to be demonstrated. It is
a kind of lasy make-shift for indoL at
housekeepers—those who take no in
terest in the routine of home cares,
either lrom indifference or from a long
ing to soar into higher atmospheres.
In a sensible article in the Independent
on co-operative kitchens, Mrs. Mary
Clemmer Ames cries, "heaven forbid I"
and says it would be better for many
women now-a-days if they would imi
tate their grand mothers more closely
in their personal interest in their kitch
ens. She adds:
••It is for the woman of tbe nineteenth
eantnry to hold la her development the
equal balance of physical and mental cul
ture. 8he cannot do this and neglect her
kitchen. No matter how far at times she
maj rise above it, it will always do her
gooJ to come back to it."
IN connection with the numerous and
terrible steambost explosions on tbeto
Mississippi, it is remarked as a curious
faet that, daring the put thirty years,
dating back to the beginning of steam
boat navigation, with but one single ex
ception not a steamboat accident has
occurred on the Upper Mississippi.
above the Rapids, involving the loss
of human life. This is doubtless du*
loth* greater care exercised by thebut
officers of our upperriverbeats.
IH an .article upon the frequency
with which women are exposed to in-with
sults in the ears and on tbe streets, the
New York Timer suggests the lash as
the most effectual remedy for the evil.
Lei the vile dogs be taken tea jail or
prison snd severely flogged. Nothing
probably would have a more salutary
effect in checking tfcese outrages.
Tan report of tho Department ol
Agriculture, a ayoopsis of which is
published elsewhere, says tbe potato
crop was "unusually good iu the West
with the exception of Minnesota."
The erop in this State was very large,
unusually large, the only complaint
being the rot caused by the wet weath

streets by four *hitc hor es and soon

possible speed, and color*, aud decora

that a full thousand of these and mostly
young men, with as many bones, have
been seen to-day between my hotel and
the fair grounds.
Iu Kentucky a fair means one thing,
in Minnesota another. In the latter it
means an exhibition and competition for
premiums ot horses, cattle, products
•I the farm and various handiwork.
In Kentucky it means chiefly and
principally a show of the young men
and the handsome women of the entire
surrounding country. Especially of
elegant bonnets, and rich silks, and
the latest fashion*?, and above all bright
eyes and fascinating figures. So, if I
wanted to note the dress, fashion, and
looks of the people, aud to do it ex
actly from observation, when they could
be photographed to tho best advantage,
I would go to a Kentucky lair.

would you think to see four or five
hundred ladies' "side saddles" in a row,
of all sizes, shapes, workmanship and

to-day is said, by the best judges, not
to be remarkable. And yet there are

finer display. (I am speaking of what
experienced horsemen say.) Tbe pacers
shown are all mares ot remarkable
beauty and spirit. They stand in blan
kets, except when in the ring. All are
led and tried by negro men, who seem
have an aptitude in that line. Those
ugly animals, mules, seem to command
most attention. There are several here
valued at four* hundred dollars each.
Tbey make tbe air hideous with their

is over, and the local estimates are com

Had the spring wheat been equal to
the winter, the whole crop would be
enormous. Throughout the South, the
yield is unusually large, and the quality
excellent. Texas snd Mississippi are
somewhat less conspicuous sharers in
this improvement than the other States
in that section. In Illinois, tbe coun
ties reporting an increase equivalent to
10 pei ceut. or more are almost without
exception in the southern part of the
State, below the 40th parallel. The
winter wheat regions, those claiming
eight-tenths of a crop, or less, are, with
or two exceptions, spring wheat

portion of winter wheat, and conse

of the counties return high figures.
