The rigid secrecy heretofore observed in relation to the pro ceedings of the tribunal is strictly main tained, and nothing of the least Importance concerning the meeting of to-day can be ascertained. Geneva, July. 26. No session of the Board of Arbitration was held to-day. Geneva, July-27. The recent interruption of the sittings of the Board of Arbitration oc curred through a necessary re-examination ef the English law on .questions regarding the construction of privateering vessels in BritiBh ports, and also the investigation as to whether the British Admiralty used suffi cient diligence in preventing these vessels from going to sea. Of the four cases ad vanced, England repudiates three, and in the fourth she contends that the Admiralty acted promptly, although the police hesitated to take the proper steps to prevent her de parture. The Court is also considering the question of allowing interest on the amount awarded. It is stated that a majority of the Board are unfavorable to such allowance. It is regarded as probable that after a careful investigation of each case, the Tribunal will fix the amount of indemnity to be paid by England at a gross sum. Charles Francis Adams preserves a firm attitude in maintaining the claims ef the United States. A conciliatory disposition is universally manifested by the American representatives. It commands much admi ration, as also does their assiduous labor in behalf of their cause. Geneva, July 29. The Swiss . Times eon firms the report th-t the Tribunal of Arbitration has decided in favor of America in tbe case of the privateer Florida, on the ground that the British Government did not ubo sufficient precautions to prevent the de parture of that vessel from English ports. The Board to-day took up the case of the Alabama. The Board have not allowed the claims of the American Government arising out of the depredations of the Boston, Jeff. Davis, and several other smaller Confederate cruisers. The reasons are that the charges of neelieence on the part of the .British trov ernment concerning these vessels were not proved. Brussels, July 29. The Independence Beige states that the awards in the cases of the privateers Florida and Alabama will to gether amount to 1,560,000. Geneva. July 30. The Board of Arbitra tion met at 1 o'clock this afternoon, and, after a three hours' sitting, adtounred un til next Monday, to give time lor the con sideration of Bpecial questions which have arisen. Geneva, July 31. There is complete har mony in the Board of Arbitration, and speedy settlement of all questions before the Tribunal is expected within a lew weens. Geneva, Aug. 1. Nothing definite can be attained regarding the proceedings of the last sitting of the Board: It is reported that all the grave questions have been set tled, and that the arbitrators are now studying the details of the prospective ad iuBtment. No official communication will hawever, be furnished to the press until the final settlement, which is likely to be reached much sooner than is expected. It is stated that the English representatives have presented to the Hoard a supplemen tary case establishing, in the belief of ihe signers, that England faithfully executed her laws in connection with the Uonteder ate cruisers. The American agents have in consequence submitted a retort to the effect that the questions cannot be judged from the mere local standpoint of English law alone, and arguing that England's liability lor the ravages committed by privateers arises principally from her non-fulfiilment of the maxims ot international law. Death from Overwork. No doubt much of the great mortality from sunstroke can be traced to cul pable carelessness. Thus, as the New York Tribune correctly remarks, it is not the lazy or rank-blooded man who is so often struck down, as the working man, ignorant of the ordinary precau tions, or the student or excited business man, whose brain is already on fire, and whose nervous system is prostrated by overwork. Our ordinary murderous high-pressure system shows its nature nowhere as in the records of last week's mortality in the chief cities. Directions for care in exposure, dress and diet are well enough in their places ; but why should we invite death at every moment ol our adult lives to give him this cold shoulder at the last? The proportion of children among those stricken down by the heat last week is appalling. Yet the heat was not worse than our fore fathers bore and lived to tell us of, and it is quite true that the children carried about with them neither exhausting cares in mind nor too hardly worked bodies, but they bad nothing to oppose to the fiery test but the flaccid limbs and rasped nerves bequeathed to them by ancestors who made the stimulant of energy and overwork their master all the while. Paternal Instinct. The paternal instinct has seldom had a finer development than in the follow ing, sent to us lrom Faribault, Minn. by a party who calls himselt " one of that class styled drummers, gorillas, commercial tourists, missionaries, etc. As the cars stopped at a small - town in Minnesota, an honest-looking Ger man and family came on board the train. The "family" consisted of numerous bundles, a wife, and a quantity of chiljj dren ot assorted sizes, irom tne babe in arms up to a boy of .twelve. The Ger man, alter stowing his bundles in the forward seats of the smoking car, pro ceeded to place his wife and offspring near them. This accomplished, he seat ed himself for a smoke. All at once, as the signal whistled for starting, he dashed out of the car into the station, returning with another child in his arms that had been asleep, barely catch ing the train before it moved. As he passed, one of the passengers said, laughingly, " You came near lorgettmg that one. ' " No," replied Hans, " I don't foreet him : but den I count dem and I miss one " Harper's Magazine. Out of the four hundred students at Zurich University, eighty are women. Of these, fifty are in the classes of medi cine, snd are chiefly from Russia, though England is pretty well represented. Miss Atkins, of the latter country, has just passed a brilliant examination, and received the degree ot Doctor of Medi cine. Dr. Hermann, who conferred the diploma, it is said, did so very grudg- ngly, and his remarks, which plainly showed his doubts of her practical suc cess, were received with " unequivocal marks of approbation " by the male students. A-few weeks ago, in the investigation of Italian ruins near Rome, the out bouses of an ancient Italian villa were discovered, and in a hole in the wall of one of them several e?7s. which had been there two thousand years. Opium Slaves. It is said that in New York city there are five thousand confirmed opium eaters. They come from every ' social class of the city. The mild -eyed melan choly inebriate? are known at once by the druggists, who fill their orders with out a physician's prescription, each drug store averaging three daily cus tomers. So desperate are those once enslaved by the fatal drug that they will steal it rather than leave the store with out it. In its crude form it is oftenest bought by the Chinese, though by the better classes sulphate of morphia is the favoi-ite form. Millions on the Strike ! In spite of the enormous amount of capital invested in the promotion of intemperance, the Missionaries of Sobriety have no reason to be disheartened. The strike against alcoholic drinks is not confined to the ordinary liquors of commerce. It is ex tending to all medicines of which ardent spirits form a component part. The belief that stimulants of this nature are slow poisons gains ground everywhere. Eminent physiologists preach the doc trine, and the diesectinc knife and the microscope afford post mortem evidence of l.s truth, .fortunately at the very time when our distinguished surgeons were making the experiments which led to this con clusion, a eapraciouB member of the prof espion. Dr. Joseph Walker, of California, was perfect ing a vegetable tonic, possessing all the restor ative properties claimed tor tne spirituous astringents and free from their deadly sting. To those demoralizing, health destroying potions his famous Vinegar Bitters seem to be giving the coup de grace. The demand for them declines, while the commercial and sani tary success of the new medicine is complete. And we hear daily of cases of dyspepsia, biliousness, malarious fever, rheumatism, con- , J l 1 jnui:. kidney disease, etc., etc., that have succumbed to the trreat restorative after resisting all others.

He was a very corpulent gentleman. Upon being desired to squat on the floor in Jap. fashion, whether on "account of his Falstaffian proportions, or because he considered it derogatory to a repre sentative of " Her Most Gracious and Christian Mnjesty," is not known, but the fact was that he utterly refused to do so. He finally left the presence with head erect and straight "on his pins," and no doubt immediately sat down to indite an indignant letter to Earl Gran ville. It is said the Japanese Ambassa dor, Terashima, will not be received at the Court of St. James until this little difficulty is settled. How a Famous Bridge was Built. The following legend relates how a certain Grand Duke of Florence built a bridge without expense to the State : The Grand Duke issued a proclamation that every beggar who would appear in the grand plaza, at a certain designated time, should be provided with a new suit of clothes free of cost.- At the ap pointed hour the beggars of tha city assembled, whereupon the officers caused each avenue of the public square to be closed, and then -compelled the beggars to strip off their old cloth s, and gave to each one, according to promise, a new suit. In the old clothes thus collected, enough money was found concealed to build a beautiful bridge, over the Arno, still called the .Beggar s bridge.
