THE U. S. S. MARION. Her Arrival at this Port From Aca pulco. The U. S. S. Marion, under command of Commander N. M. Dyer, arrived yes terday afternoon, and was anchored on the Ewa side of the Vandalia. The Marion was 32 days from Acapulco, Mexico, and experienced pleasant weather, but no trades the entire pas sage. She arrived in splendid condition, her decks having been newly varnished. The Marion is a wooden vessel of 1,900 tons register, the same size and class as the U. S. S. Mohican, and was built at New Hampshire in 1876. Her engines are of 1,000 horse power and can attain a speed of twelve knots an hour under fa vorable circumstances. She carries eight guns, including six 9-inch smooth bores, one 60-pounder breech-loading rifle and one 8-inch rifle. The Marion's complement of men is 185, exclusive of officers. Following is a list of her officers: Commander N. M. Dyer. Lieut.-Commander C. T. Hutchins. Lieutenants C. F. Emmerich, D. L. Wilson, J. C. Gilmore and W. G. Hogg. Ensign W. G. Miller. Chief Engineer Jas. Butterworth. Physicians Dr. P. Fitzsimmons and Dr. Louis Atlee. Naval Cadets W. G. McMillan, A. H. Scales, F. M. Russel and C. S. Craig. Paymaster Jno. Macmahon. Past Assistant Engineer R. D. Tay lor. First Lieutenant of Marines L. C. Webster. Assistant Engineer E. Stuart Smith. Boatswain J. Glynn. Carpenter G. Davis.

These offices, if he has any. to splendid fields of compensate him for dures. But he must i -,i large yields per acre will become less every year unless the farmers manure their lands. In Minnesota and Iowa thirty-five bushels of wheat to the acre were not uncommon when the lands in those states were first broken, and now I suppose that they do not average more than sixteen. The American farmers neglected to farm scientifically, and worked the land for all it was worth. It is just the same with us. The summers are short and hot. It is hotter in Winnipeg than it is in New York. But here, too, we are ahead of you people in some things. As we dress for the winter in furs, we dress for the summer in a becoming way. Down here a man is supposed to shiver in a tall, black hat and kid gloves in winter, with a pair of earlaps making him hideous, while in summer he is expected to change the color of the hat only, while he roasts under an overcoat which he calls a duster. It is very different with us. In summer we wear thick helmets with good ventila tion, and we keen the sun off our heads while we have plenty of air. light clothes, suited to the We all wear season, and flannel shirts with flannel collars attached are general even among the wealthy. When these are white they are becoming, and nothing else is so cooL Then we wear white canvas shoes, and if we dress for comfort we also dress with taste. But we are worried with fiies. They come in inilliciis. There are black "flies, mus quitoes, bull-dogs, and sand-flies, or "bite and can't see 'em, " as the Indians call them. The Early Days of Central Park. Ger. Egbert L. Viele. I first drew up the plans for Central park in 185(5. My report wTas printed in full in several newspapers, taking a whole page. William Cullen Bryant, in an editorial article, praised my scheme, but declared that I would never live to see it carried out When the driveways of the park were thrown open to the public in 1862, there were no public conveyances to that part of the city. The lot now occu pied by the Fifth Avenue hotel was used as a circus ground, and a tombstone yard adorned the spot upon which the Albe marle and Hoffman houses now stand. There were no buildings in Broadway above Union square. It was about the year 1856 that the Lenoxes and Astors abandoned Second avenue, which was at that time the fash ionable quarter of the city, for Fifth avenue. Everybody was laughing at the absurdity of the movement. It wasn't long, however, before nearly all the high toned families had left their establishments in the old, for the more spacious buildings in the new, fashionable quarter. Many people living down town hardly ever heard of Central park until several years after it had been opened. The great breathing place of the city is now com pleted with a few changes according to the plans which I drew up thirty years ago. The Toilet of the Snake. Good Cheer. Prior to shining forth resplendent in fresh attire, a serpent seeks retirement. He becomes blind for a few days, refuses food, and appears to be in a melancholy state generally. When all is ready he be gins at the lips to extricate himseif from his old dress, rubbing against whatever may be in his way. The first part of the process is tedious, but as he progresses he works more rapidly; when he reaches the ribs they assist the operation, until finally the old skin is shed entire, turned inside out, and Mr. Snake revels in his new suit. His eyes, covered by a perfectly transparent layer of cTiticle, are bright and beautiful. It is only while this cuti cle is forming over the eye that the ser pent is blind. Their toilet is made in the spring, but not, alone at that time; any un usual circumstance is apt to make them wish for a new suit of clothes, beginning when they are infants from one to two weeks old. Some are so fastidious as to require a chauge once a month, and even oftener, while others, more plebeian, will wear the same garment for six months. .Forrest's Tragic Dietary. Brooklyn Eagle. The relation between food and artistic eminence probably exists rather sub jectively than in primary form. What a man eats can scarcely be converted into passion, imagination or fervor by any known chemical process or any subtle transformation that can be stated in lan guage. It is truer than most stage traditions that Forrest did regulate his dietary by the theatrical programme in his later years at least it is vouched for as truth by more trustworthy authorities than generally father these professional legends. Macbeth looming up before him his midday meal would be beefsteak very rare. Fried eels wTas dietary pre paration for Iago; lamb and Lear went together and when, in his basso prof undo he shook the air with a demand for roast beef, rare with a tremendous tragic roll of the rs, the initiated knew that he would that evening "launch the curse of Rome" with his accustomed adjustment of sound and fury. " A False Weather Prophet. Lime-Kiln Club. Extract Hastings offered the following preamble and resolution: Whereas, De weather prophet now in de employ of dis club has all along pre dicted an open winter, an' led us to be lieve dat robins an' blue birds an' roses would almos' prove a nuisance between December an' April; an' "Whereas, We has bin baseiy deceived, an' frozen hitchin' posts hev take de place of singin' birds an' climbin' roses; now, darfore, "Resolved, Dat Prof. Pendulum Back water, de prophet above referred to, be giben de grand bounce widout pay. " Pickles Smith explained that man was liable to make mistakes, and that the pro fessor should be given another trial, but on a vote being taken the false prophet was decapitated in good shape. Old Stamps to Order. San Francisco Chronicle. A wholesale manufactory of Swiss stamps of old issues has just been dis covered in Zurich. The forgers have gone about their wrork very thoroughly. They have collected scraps of old letters bear ing postmarks with various dates from 1843 to 1860, and the better to deceive the unwary, they have stuck the stamps on to these pieces of envelope.
