BOTANY is a division of natural science which treats cf plants, and a study of Vegetable f'hisiologv must be the foundation of botanical knowledge a study only possi ble by the improvements in the microscope and iu organic chemistry . As plants are not scattered haphazard over the earth, botanical geography must be studied, and, with this, plai.t history. Botany may bo applied to the wants of evcry-day life, as in Agriculture, Horticulture, or Medical Botany. Animals often exhibit a man clous instinct in select ing medicinal herbs, and an observation of their habits has often, even in the present time, led to most v&luublo discoveries. And should man, with his knowledge and appli ances, fail to discover less than the brutef It is of Medical Botany wo would speak, or of tho HEPATINE PLANT, discovered in Southern N: bin, the Flower of which changes its color with every change of tl:e atmosphere. The remarkable changes and variatious of this plant and tlower have neen lor years our special Btudy, resulting in tho discovery of its possession cf wonderful medical properties, tho existence and val je of which have heretofore been entirely unknown to medical science.

The Senate is divided between forty-two Republicans, twenty-nine Democr.ts and two Independents, giving Republicans a majSrit' of eleven. The nest Senate will con sist of seventy-six Senators. If the Democrats hold their present seats and elect nine others of the twenty nine Senators to be chosen, then, with a Democratic Vice President in the chair, the- would control the upper house of Congress. The six teen Republicans whose terms ex pire with the present Congress are from the States of Arkansas, Illi nois, Iowa. Kansas. Louisiana. , - , Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Jersey, Rhode Island, South Carolina and Wisconsin. The nine Democrats going out are from Alabama, Dele- ware, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Vir ginia and West Virginia. One of the retiring Senators Hamilton of Texas is classed as an Indepen uent. in aumtion to these the new State of Colorado, whose politics are in doubt, will elect two Sena tors, and Louisiana will elect a sec ond Senator to fill the vacancy for which Pinchback contested. The liostou Transcript, in referring to this matter, says; "The Democrats are certain to make more raius. and it would not require a great deal of careless independent voting to give the government entirely over to Democratic control in the event of the success of the Demo cratic National ticket."

The Pio neer Press and Irilune will to-mor-morrow publish au interview with an old trapper, named Ridgely, who has been for a long time in the Yel lowstone country, and claims to have witnessed the Custer massacre, bekig a prisoner in Sitting Hull's camp. Previous to Custer's attack' mounted couriers from Sitting Bull's camp for eight days watched his forces, its division into small detachments being noted with de light. Ambuscades were immedi atel' prepared, while the Indians stood readv for attack. Many of them clambered on the side of the hill overlooking Custer's line of march. The Indian camp was di vided by the bluif, a point of which ran toward the Rosebud and in the direction of one of the available fords on the river to the camp. THE AMBL'SH. Bv this ford Custer followed their trail down to the water's edge There were but twenty-live teepes visible to Custer, but there were seventy five double teepes behind the bluu" not visible. Custer at tacked the smaller village, and was immediately met by 1,500 or 2,000 Indians in regular order of battle Every movement was made with ilitary precision. Ridgely says that he stood on the side of the hill den. Custer began the fight iu a ravine near the ford, and fully half of his command seemed to be kilipd at the first fire. The soldiers re treated towards the rear ana were shot down with astonishing rapidity the commanding officer falling from his horse in the middle of the en gagement, which commenced at 11 a. m., and did not last more than 45 mavll-tf WM.

Ileyond the idea suggested in those facts I can not, MUST NOT GO.

II IS PORTRAIT IS NOT QUITE READY OR IT WOULD HAVE RE EN HERE. Let me take you by the hand." The boys of Giles College and other high schools in this section would do well to note the Govern or's style. minutes. IIOKKIBLE TORTURES. After the massacre of Custer's force, 'the Indians returned to camp with six soliers and delirious with loy over their success. Ihese fix were tied to stakes and were burned to death. V hue the names were torturing them to death, the boy fired red hot arrows into their quiv ering flesh. Sitting Bull was met after the fight, and he exultingly remarked that 4;he had killed many soldiers and one damned Genera) but did not know who he was The Squaws then armed themselves with knives and visited the battle field, murdering and robbing. KEXO'S ATTACK. While these soldiers were bcin burned, the Iudians turned tneir at tention to the forces likely Reno' who were attackiw the lower end of the village. Ridgeby says that Custer's command had been slaugh tcred before a shot was fired by Reuo's force attacking the lower end of tho camp, which was about 2 r. m. They returned in the eve ning, and said that the men had fought like' the devil, but Ridgely says they did not state their losses. They said that the soldiers had been driven back twice and then piled up stones and the attack was unsuccessful. The prisoners were kept burning over an hour, but Ridgely was not permitted to speak with them, so he Is unable to state who they were. One was noticea ble for his small size, and gray hair and whiskers. Reno killed more Indians than Custer, who fell in the midst of the fight, and two captains, believed Gates and Keogh, were the last to die. THE SCOUT'S KSCAPE. The night after the massacre the Indians were wild with delight Many were drunk on whisky stolen Irom the whites, and the squaws performed duty as guards for the prisoners. Becoming drowsy, Ridge ly and two companions escaped, se cured pouies and began a long jour nej homeward. The part' ate game and laid in the woods four days to avoid the Indians. On the way his horse stumbled, and Lulge !y's arm was broken, but the party finally reached Fort Abercrombie, and thence Ridgely came here. He describes Sitting Bull as a half- breed, of large size, very intelligent, with a peculiar gait. M ETIIODIST FIJATEIINITY. Some Mistfkeu Notioiis about the Plan of the Joiut Commission. The Nashville Christian Advocate, organ of the M. E. Church, South, says in its issue this week: The plan of Fraternity agreed upo j by the joint commission, as might have been expected, is vari ously understood or misunderstood, commended or censured. - The Richmond Dispatch has been pub lishing some articles severely criti cising and others highly approving the Plan. We hope there will be no controversies about it in any of our church papers. Many of our friends of the secular press persist in blundering about it. For therr behoof if they please aud for that of others, we simply state: 1. The Plan of Fraternity was not designed to supercede the Plan of Separation, indeed, it recog nizes everything in that Plan, ex cept the boundary line between the two connections, with which the commissioners did uot feel at liber ty to meddle. But if all the rest is cariied out in good faith the other niavbe recognized in due time. z. lhe I'lan of I ratermty was not designed to effect rganie un ion. If any such utopiau scheme had been proposed at our General Conference no commissioners would have been appointed. Our North ern brethren have manifested no intention to retract from their"nov el view of Episcopacy viz., that it is the creature of the delegated general Conference, whereas we hold it to be of co ordinate rank, uot to be set atide or essentially changed, except by a convention of the whole church called for the purpose. We are as much as ever wedded' to the episcopacy a3 we re ceived it from our fathers, and to the presiding eldership which de pends on it, whereas our Northern brethren have been getting farther and father away from there old landmarks. We do not say this by way of censure, but merely to show that an organic union is out of the question. There are other points of difference, as the change in the conditions of church membership, etc., together with the prodigious growth of the church, which make organic union not only undesirable, but also impossible. Let nothing more be said on that point. 3. The plan of Fraternity is in tended to be a finality, so far as the points agreed .upon are concerned. We expect to keep it in good faith, as we did the Plan of Separation But we are not sure that the North ern General Conference so intended, or, if it did, that its successor iu 1SS0 will be bound by id. -We arc reminded of 1S44 and ISIS. Be this as it may, we hope our breth ren everywhere will abide by the Plan, and scrupulously carry out all its provisions. They do not in volve anything which would be of fensive to them, such as would take place if they were organic union It is not necessary, in this irenic ar tide, to be more explicit. We want peace at least an armistice, with out limitation of time. COUNTING AT FOUR-SCOSE. An Interesting: Marriagre Cere mony in Massaehsetts. I Haverhill Dispatch ir. Boston Herald. Last evening an unusually inter esting ceremony took place at the residence of Mr. Daniel L. Sawyer, No. 20 Green street, Rev. A. A. Williams ofHeiatinir. The bride groom was Ebon. II. Little, Esq., 82 years old, a native of Hempstead, N. II., and a successful Boston mer chant. The bride wa Miss Je rusha Palmer, Si years old, a weal thy maiden lady, formerly residing on Beacon street, Boston, but of late of Somervillo. The grooms man was Master Anson Ayer, 14 years, and the bridesmaid, Nellie M. Sawyer, a Miss of 13. The wed ding party consisted of about Uni ty persons, relatives and friends, including ages from the infant of 13 months, with its suggestive, prattle, to those of three score years. The! partita to the union are hail and hearty, with no abatement of natural fervor save that which attends ad vancing years. Mr. Little has been married once before, and several years ago passed the period of his golden wedding. To the bride "the elations were new. The early hours of the hona3-moon are, to day, being spent in an excursion down the river in the Queen of the Merrimack, the party being joined by Odd Fellows and daughters of Rebecca, to whom they will present a practical illustration of how the odd are sometimes made even. The romance of the affair is that Mr. Little, "longing for a kindred spir it," and yearning for a heart that could commune with his own, made proposals to Miss Palmer several months ago, which were not then looked upon with favcr. Within the past ten days, however, an an swer was received, reversing the former decision and assenting to the proposed union, to the manifest oy of the suitor. The maiden be came his affianced, and the necessa ry preparations for tho nuptial cer emonies were hastened, so that the event took place last evening. - The venerable pair are to make their abode in this city.

It is true the "bloody Iudians" have been driven from their hunting-grounds a few times within the past two hundred mid fifty years, and there have been some other irregularities in the treatment they have received; but these matters do not form issues in this campaign. They arc lest in the more important question : How has the Republican party treated the whites ever since it came into power? Cuffy has been the bject of its especial interest, and now Lo comes in for a share of it. The Re publicans don't seem to like the scent of the -white folks. The pe culiar odor of the negro and the Indian suits them better. Well, there's no accounting for tastes, vou know. . ..--- . The Republicans do not deny that the Chairman of the Republi can National Committee is paid S 000 a year out of . the Treasury ,,f iIip United States. That's the way the money goes. Bishop Marvin's Farewell. Au interesting service was held last evening, at St. John's M. E. Church, corner of Ewing avenue and Locust street, being a farewell to Bishop Marvin, who is about to take a trip around ihe world. It having beeu decided by the general Conference of the Methodist Epis copal Church that some Bishop should be selected to go to China and visit the missions there with a view to ascertaining their needs and studying the best mode of sup plying them, the choice fell upon Bishop Marvin, and to night ho ex pects to start on his journey which will probably take him around the earth before lie returns. The church was crowded last evening, and the occasion was made a most affecting one. Several clergymen officiated Dr. Bond "conducted the opening exercises, and Rev. W. V. Tudor delivered an address, in which he explained the nature of Bishoi Marvin's projected work, and also the situation of the India missions as it is understood. Rev. D. Lewis nod Bishop Kavanaugh were also present. Communion service was held and participated in by a re markablv large number of eommuni cants. St. Lou it liejiuLIicarij Aug. 22 Peabody School Fund in the South. The Trustees of the Peabody Ed ucational Fund, at a meeting at the Greenbrier White Sulphur Springs, in West Virginia, severely rebuked the administrations in those South era States where the Republicans are in the ascendency. Dr. Sears' report showed a generally flourish ing condition of tho Public School in all the Southern States except in Florida, South Carolina and Louis lana. Mr. George Peabody Russell, of England, who spent the last win ter in the South, in discussing the report, expressed his opinion that nothing could be expected from those three States in the way of ad vancing their educational interests until there was an entire change in their State governments. Mr. Rus- Ye men of Giles, beware of wiles 1 bateau all beartsdisarm. Or you'll be won bj this fair one W ho can moat sweetly charm.

He saw plainly that the Republican party in the South did not foster or encourage education, and that only in the States where the intelli gent Democracy were in the ascen denc', did a creditable system of education exist. Over 1,000, 000, children in the South are attending the schools in, part sup ported by the Peabody " Fund. Some $1,000,000 were last year ex pended from the Peabody Fund, and much will be expended the en suing year.

It begins to look as if he might go out, and even per haps resume control of his great railroads. What a lark it would be if the Commodore, on whose death brokers have been gambling for mouths, should turn the tables and once more put ins hooK into the jaws of that Wall street behemoth ! The newspapers, by the way, are geting very tired of keeping the old man's obituary in type, and they are becoming still moro tired of keeping a brigade of futile reporters around his house. The Vanderbilt illness will cost almost as muc? as the Beecher trial. Every morning paper in New York employs three reporters whose exclusive business it is to "do" Vanderbilt. They serve in relays of eight hours each. and one for each paper is constantly on guard. There are some'' fifteen at a time in the aggregate. At first they hung around the front gate, questioning the doctors, visitors and servants, interviewed'the butcher, baker,, candlestick-maker and oth ers, or climbed the lamp-post iit vi vacious rivalry and obtained furtive glimpses through the blind when zephyr stirred the curtain. Now they occupy two rooms assigned them in the university opposite, and they Lave a festive, not to say con vivial time. They dispatch a picket of two to patrol in front of . tin- house ami get the news, and the rest send out for peauuts, ginger ale, lager, and even more euticing luxuries, anl they play poker with unflagging zeal. It improves the environment. When the Commo dore looks through the blinds now, instead of seeing a platoon of pink faced reporters, impatiently waiting for him to die, he hears the cheer ful click of chips, and eager voices remark, "Ante!" 'Pass the buck!" "Straddle the blind!" "Ten better!" "Claw in the pot!" and other plain tive observations which show that this is, .ndeed, a vale of tears. "Twinkle, twinkle, little star, How I wonder what you are!" Right over there to-night, above the southern horizon, a trinagle of three bright stars shine like dia monds in the sky. The brightest one is Sirius. It was the watch-dog of the Nile. It rose when the great Nile flood rose every year. As they had fever then, they thought the dog-star Sirius warned them of fe vers. Aud some people here be lieve the rising of the dog-star, dog days, are fever days. How brilliant it is! Wonder how. far off it is? Let's sec; how shall we come at it? The tailor measures by tho yard ; but the yard measure will not do. Railroad measure will not do. Railroads measure by the mile. Well, that ma3r do to start on. Let's get a few distances From New York to Chicago, is, say, 1 000 miles; to Denver, Col., 2,000 miles; to San Francisco, 3,000 miles A pretty broad country, that. But this will hardly do for the stars. It may do for the star worlds that belong to our Sun. The moon is 210,000 miles off. About 500 times as far eay 100,000,000 miles and we come to the sun. It is a little less, but that will do 100,- 000,000 miles to the sun. Now, that bright, blue star, Si rius, that looks so little b' our sun, is over 100,000,000 as far from us as the sun- that is, 100,000,000 times million miles, or about 10,000, 000,000,000,000 does not get much knowledge into our heads. Let us try another way. The cars run about 30 miles an hour. To get to the moon on the cars would take 333 days sa' one year. To get to the sun we would have to go, if we lived long enough, 37G years. And now for a long trip. If we could ride to Sirius on. the cars, at the rate of 30 miles an hour, we should get there in about 370,000 000 years, allowing for no way stations at the moon and the sun. But that's a little more time than most of us can spare for a pleasure tiip. Let's try another plan to find out how far off Sirius is. If we can't go, may be we can see. Light trav els faster than the cars. Light joes at the rate of lbl.oou miles a econd. In about 8J minutes the first ray of light reaches us from the sun, after he rises in the morn ing. Now, although that is travel ing pretty fast, yet it would take a ray of light, starting from Sirius, 23 years to Fcaeh us here; it will take the Sirians 23 years waiting to Der vos hafing some lifely dimes oudt to der "inile-d racks der odor day, und Coppitz asks didn't I vould like to go oudt und see der races; so I dells Katrina I vas going to be ava3' a leedie vhile, und to dopk cood srare of der schon vhile I vas goue.

New York Tribune: The wa3- in which the war order of the Presi dent and his Secretary has been re ceived is highly encouraging. Generally speaking, it has wn the decided approbation of nolKnty. On the other hand, it has aroused the decided disapprobation of many who have long been defenders of the Administration. Upon the whole, we are inclined to think that contempt is the prevalent sentiment which it has awakened. The Charleston (S. C) Journal of Com merce calls it "a game of bluff." "Calculated to do more harm than good," says the Boston Daily Ad vertiser. Here are opinions from both ends of the Union, and ihev are (air samples of the universal comment. If tho order could been forced it would be mischievous; considering the military resources of the Government, it is most ridic ulous. Not to, however, the l.Iun dering animus of the order. That is a serious matter, or would be if the White House were not about to change its tenant and the War Department its Secretary. see the glories of our one hundredth liberty year, and the splendid 6how of the Centennial at Philadelphia, the gathering of the fruits of the great republic, and the gathering of the fruits of the nations of the earth will not dazzle their eyes un -il about the year 1900. If Sirius were blotted out to-day, yet years its splendor would gem the Southern sky, and only when 23 -ears had gone by would we know the dire catastrophe by a dark space eclipsing the brilliant star. What a great blazing sun it is, pouring out its white heat away into the untrav- eled immensity ! We think some people and some things big in this world of ours. But w"hcii we look at this mighty sun, mightier than 2,000 of our suns,, and then remember that the eye can see six thousand of them in the sparkling sk-, and that the glass can sec 20.000,000 of them, some of thc-in smaller, but many of them far mightier than this glorious Sirius, we begin to feci our own dimen sions, and, though we can never takes its measure, yet we can look with awe and reverence on the mighty universe of God.

Joe What should I do there I'm no member of the club. Bill But you are a Republican, and all 3 011 need do sign the con stitution and then you'll be a full member. Joe Yes, I'm a Republican, that is so, but then I have been a think ing I'd just hold off this time. Bill Hold oil! What do you mean by that? Joe Wh3 just not vote, and let the thing take its own course, or else votfl for the other fellows. Bill Now, Joe, I don't want you to talk tliat wa3', but come along to tho meeting and stick to the good cause. Joe What do you mean by good cause? Bill Why I mean to stand by the party and keep the rebels out of power. Joe And who are rebels? Bill Oh, what's the use of such fooling? You know what I mean Joe No, I don't know what you mean when you talk about sticking to the good cause and keeping down the rebels, for I certainly can't sec any good in these times when I have not hal a regular da3''s work to do for the last eight weeks, and as for rebels I'm beginning to sus pect that as we have had no rebel lion for about twelve years, that sort of clap trap is onhy kept up by the office holders for the purpose of catching gudgeons.

New York Sun: We published yesterday a sensible and moderate letter, written by the Rev. J. W. Dungee, a colored clergyman of Richmond, Va., in which he set forth very clearly his reasons for beliving that the best interests of his race required the abolition of the color line in politics, a distribu tion of tho colored vote between the two great parties, and the culti vation of friendly relations between the whites and blacks of the South. The boldness of Mr. Dungee in maintainig such heretical opinions has brought upon him a sea of trou bles. The Board of Home Mis sions, represented by a rabid polit ical person ia New Hampshire named Curtis, has remoubtrated with hiru for his declared intention of voting for Tildeft, assuring him that he would ruin his usefulness as a minister of Christ by uoTng so, and intimating that he need expect no more money from the Board un less he would agree to support Zach. Chandler's ticket; his Sunday School in Richmond has ' been broken up, his life has been in danger from mob violence, and finally, the policy of insurance on hi? dwelling having expired, the in stance companies refuse to renew it, because the Republican negroes in Richmond have threatened to burn him out. And yet Mr. Dun gee is a man of unblemished char acter, who for twenty-seven, years was a slave, yet managed to obtain an excellent education, aud fcince the war he has devoted "himself en tirely to working for the elevation of his fellow lrevdmen. Such is the treatment that intelligent colored men receive in the South when they Bill But cf course I didn't mean I "are to follow their own convictions to call you a traitor.
