THE CITY. rgr i -w. t.MM 1 ; - t IIojcokh.t.'HE irerj'boily of sense is op posed (o all kinds of monopolies even to n tclt'Eranh monopoly. There bas lately been nt-rted an American Press Association, which is founded npon pnn cipk'S exactly opposite to those of the Xew York Associated Press. Its great object is to cheapen news, Every news paper that joins it contributes to build up a svstein, the extension of which has n direct effect in reducing the price of news to all concerned.- Every accession to the resources of the American Press Association aids, first, in extending and perfecting its system of collecting news, and, second, in reducing its price to the several members. In no other sense is it proposed to make any dividends. The association is based on the broadest principle of free trade in news. It gathers news everywhere, and distributes it im mediately, and without discrimination among its members. The field iu which it operates is open to all. It has been oc cupied exclusively, hitherto, by the New York Associated Press, but with all the increased facilities, of ocean cables and land lines of telegraph, covering all sec tions of our own country, there is no reason why the newspapers of America should not collect und publish their own news, independent of the arbitrary re quirement aud expensive exactions of a close monopoly like the New York Asso ciated Press. This opposition to an old monopoly may be the means of bringing us more interesting news by telegraph than we Tiave been in the habit of get ting.' ' i r Nkw Style or History. Professor Draper has written what he calls " a his tory of the war for the Union," but it is the queerest history we ever read. Here is a picture of Sherman and his men, which is quite amusing, and would an swer ery well for -a page in one of Beadle's dime novels: i , Mirny of the regiments were accompanied by gnats, dogs, tut, and other animals they hail adopted. Game cocks might be teen riding on a cannon, or on the pack-saddle of a mule.

Manufacturer leaves with a long face, meets on the street a moneyed man, after his rebuff at the bunk, approaches with diffidence, and asks what lie will charge for a few hu:idred dollars for thirty or sixty days. Moneyed Man " Well, sir, I will take your note at 5 per cent, per month." Manufacturer 1 cannot nnonl to pay tbut much, but as I am needing money very much to-day would be willing . ii o .
