Can a i.v has indulged in the past some exceedingly lofty lniasting as to the sujKTiority of her buildings over those j erected on this side of the frontier. The I bursting of the grain elevator at Pelle ville, however, is calculated to check such Iioasting in the future. The struc ture was of the " cheap and nasty" order of architecture, and its fall scattered 40,- xxi bushels of grain to the winds and t lie pigs. The old sury of the camel entering the house by inches at a time, is repeated in the Sandwich Islands. Some of the merchants there imported Chinamen to lo their work, but many of the latter, :ifter saving a little money, set up for themselves, and are now edging their old masters out of every trade. There are more than live thousand Chinamen in the id-uids, and they have driven many of the native and foreign merchants into bankruptcy. A noticeable thing aliout the monthly meeting of the Massachusetts Total AlvMin-.Mcc SK-iet, held in Fioston, was a little speech by William RSpooner on the prevalence of drinking among h igymcii, more than one-half of whom, he said, drink w ine. A large majority of the Uoniau Catholic clergy drink; a majority of the Episcopalian and of his wn denomination the Unitarian, some .f the orthodox and Iaptit, but very few of the Methodist or Universalist. Tilt: Ilritish commissioner to our cen tennial has suggested, according to For ney, that the iermanent buildings of the exhibition should be kept filled with in teresting objects, contributed each year, s that there may be a bi-centennial ready made in 197i. This would be a good thing for Philadelphia, perhaps, but there is no certainty that the rest of the country would find it cither pleasant or profitable. The coining centennial would be an awful Ure if we had deliberately begun preparing for it a century ago.

The dispute arose from the setting up of a billiard saloon and Urn ling alley on the grounds 1 ist summer. The advocates of these sinful games argued in vain that they would attract to the grounds just the class w'.iich needed most the spirit of a camp meeting. Their opponents wouM not listen, but seceded and have formed another association. There is considerable iliscussioaucad dillerenee of opinion as to how rapidly fish grow. A recent letter from England says that a salmon weighing eighteen, pounds was caught in the Severn, wear- ing a silver lalx'l. This was identified and proved the fish to le one which was caught six mojitlis lx Cire and returned to the water. At tl time it weighed nine oimds. That is, it had gained a jHiund and a half for a montfi, or nearly an ounce a day right along. Valmasepa has origninated a new method of squeezing money out of the loyal in Cuba in order to provide one of the recently arrived regiments with horse.-.. He has decreed that a 'sacred contribution" of 16 per cent, on each individual's taxes in Havana must forth- with lie handed in.

It is estimated that the sugar crop of Louisiana this year will be 4.",000 hogsheads greater than for any other season since the war. . Kentucky paid $9,022,630 government taxes last year, which places her fifth in the line of states. ' Illinois paid the largest amount, $17,027,658. The bonded debt of St. Ixniis at the beginning of its present municipal year was $2j,W2,000, and is now $16,270,000. With the floating debt added, tho entire liabilities of the city foot up $17,417,000. The Alexandria committee appointed to examine the books, papers, wheel and tickets belonging to the Moutpelier Humane Assc ciatinn, reported that a most glaring fraud has been practiced on the ticket holders. The committe cannot designate the guilty parties. Over fifty additional arrests have re cently been made for illicit distilling ia the Virginian mountain region, and the frauds against the government there are in a" fair way to be completely checked, as they have already been in the west. The Gainesville (Ga.) Southron re ports that the mining news in Georgia is very encouraging. Nearly all the companies are vigorously at work and doing well.

The lattinal revenue receipts n?w aS iiierease for JuJy, August, September and October of S2,400,i:9, and it is exacted the increase for the present month will be one million and a half of dollar. The ta crease in the receipts front the inerasfcd lax on distilled spirits ai not been as large as Pticbaled, but there has been an increase of receipts from tobacco and snuff, owing to tfce change of the tax from 20 to 22 per cent. per pound. - The following report upon capital de osits, and banks and bankers) appears as the sHpplcttent to the report of the eommis sljimef M Internal revenue: Sinee thf orgaft iaation of national banks, lie amount real ijed from th Sources to the close of the tt fiscal yea, otaa $6487,374 ; realized dur ing the last fiscal year $7,270,758 ; amount paid by national banks o deposits alone dur ing the period of their existence up to June 3, 1875, $30,018)28; amount paid during the last fiscal year f 3,2i "JjTS.

As the former re ports of their Condition have indicated, the states bordering on the Atlantic all show re duced products, and those on the Mississippi valley an increased yield. The area of the great September storm in southern Texas proves less disastrous than was at first appre hended. The amount of lint in comparison with the weight of seed cotton is quite favor able, ranging from 25 to 33 per cent.; but to ! far as reported appears to be less than in 1874. The state per centages representing the aggregate quantity as compared with last year, are as follows: North Carolina 91, South Carolina 94, Florida 00, Alabama 102, Mississippi 111, Texas 114, Arkansas 130, Ten nessee 116. The crop of Arkansas is a good one, but the figures are increased more by the fact of last year's poor yield than by the excess of this year's crop. These figures point to a small advance upon last year's ag gregate if November and December should be favorable to the opening and picking of the top crop. roETT-rounni jcosjee.ss.

In the afternoon an inquiry was lliat 1 r 11 f tui Iwt tha nnniinol onH and a short time an eight year old boy, the son ot respectable parents, said he had taken the sacque and hidden it under his coat, but cn his way home a boy had snatched the sacque awav. This story was corrob orated by the brother of the contested thief, a boy only six years old. Ihe principal of the school, the boy's parents and the police took the matter in band, and the youngster promised to show where the sacque was hidden, describing the place; but on the way there he gave the oliceman the sl.p and ran home. He was then taken to an engine house, to the station house, and finally locked up in a dart room, but he retused to say where the sacque was. lie did not whim per or cry, but retained the utmost com posure ; and when asked now ne liked his place of imprisonment, said "it would do well enough. At the approach ot evening he was taken out, and appeared no more alarmed or disturbed than if he had been in the parlor of his home. He was sent to his parents, and policeman, teacher and parents were puzzled over this strange case. Ihe sequel, however, was stranger at ill. The day following the boy's confession the sacque was found under circumstan ces that showed it to be utterly impos sible for the boy accused or his brother to have had anything to do with taking it away or to have seen it. In short it was shewn conclusively" that the boy's con- tession and his brother s corroboration of it were without any foundation whatever; and all" efforts thus far made to ascertain by what motives, if any, they were actu ated have been unavailing:. Both of the boys have been considered more than or dinarily truthful heretofore, which only adds to the mystery. The case is not the first of the kind in the history of the country. Thei-e was a man in Vermont, Y$ars ago, who was accused of m'u'rderinKnis neighbor and who was convicted upon his own con fession, in which he gave the most minute details of the murderous act. He was sentenced to death, but his life was saved by the sudden appearance, on the very dayjixed for his execution, of the indi vidumsupposed to have been murdered ; and hiaiiarrow escape has been of inesti mable value to innumerable criminal lawyers with clients in danger of convic tion on circumstantial evidence, who have used tho Vermont case with telling force upon the jury. There was the case also, ot a bank note engraver in New York who accused himself of stealinc a bill of the denomination of one thousand dollars, which was subsequently foUiid adhering to the printing press. There was a Bofcton gentleman, too, who ac cused himself of deliberately embezzling a large sum of money which, it was after wards discovered, he had secreted in his kjvrn house in a fit of somnambulism. It is not safe, however, because of these cases, to conclude that confession is no longer of any value as evidence. The very fact that such occurrences strike the jHipular mind as remarkable, shows that they are out of the common course, and that the truthfulness of confessions, when made by parties charged with crime, is a safe assumption as a general rule. "How are you getting on at your new place?" asked a lady of a girl whom she hnd recommended for a situation. " Very well, thank you;" answered the girl.

So, with a woman's decision she caught up a pair of tongs from the chimney piece aud dashed the costly ca-e into fragments. Shortly atterwara sue con fided it. with a lartre sum of money, to a faithful official, with orders to nna the Emperor at V llhelmshohe anrt give them to him. The official lost his head, and, instead of setting out at once, went to liis apartments in Paris. There he put the monev and the talisman into an arm or ie, the key to which he had lost, and the double" doors of which he fastened together by jiinning over them a map of the fortifications oi 1 aris, witn iour pins: lhcncame the 'events, one-after an- o.hcr, with tremendous rapidity. The I official, caught one day out of (Usir, was J county. Pa., will be brought to certain iron works in Pittsburgh. The work of laying a pipe, six inches in diameter and seventeen miles long, i3 said to be con tracted for, to tie finished within a month. It is further reported that a project is being mooted to purchase all the gas wells in Butler county, and bring their product to the Pittsburgh manu factories. This last scheme, if success fully realized, would work quite an in dustrial revolution. But, whether feasi ble or not, the agitation of the subject is an indication that the. question of utili.r ing the enormous volumes; of vatuaoie heating gas which have, until the present, been allowed to go to wast, is at lengin receiving the attention it deserves. .

Jlinton was the editor of the rival paper. He had lately licen jilted and one night a friend found an oien note lying on the poor lt-IIon's lied, in which he stated that he could no lontrcr endure lite, and had drowned himself in lear creek. The friend ran down there and discovered Hinton wadintr back to snore: lie had concluded hewoulnnt. The village was full of it for several days, but I lih ton did not suspect it. I thought mis was a nne opportunity. 1 wrote an ehdxirately wretched account of the whole matter, and then illustrated it with vil lainous cuts engraved on the Ixittoms of wooden type, with a jack knife; one of i. r. e-il- . i. lucui a picture oi jnnton wadiner out into tne creeic in his shirt, with a lantern, sounding the depth of the water with a waiKing-sticK. i tnought it was desper ately funny, and was densely unconscious that there was any moral obliquity alxiut sucn a publication, jiemg satisfied with this eflort, 1 looked around for other worlds to conquer, and it struck me that it would make good, interesting matter to charge the editor of a neioJiKiring country paper with a piece of gratuitous rascality, and "see him squirm I" I did it, putting the article into the form of a parody on the " Burial of Sir John Moore" and a pretty crude parody it was, too. lhen 1 lampooned two prominent citi zens outrasreously : not because they had done anything to dewrve it, but merely because I thought it was my duly to make the paper lively, jsext 1 gently touched up the newest stranger; the lion of the day, the gorgeous journeyman tailor from Quincy. He was a siiniiering coxcomb ot thenrst water, and the " loudest" dressed man in the State. He was an inveterate woman-killer. Every week he wrote lushy "poetry'' for the Journal aKmt his newest conquest. His rhymes for my week were headed "To Mary in H 1, meaning to Alary, in Hannibal, of course. But while setting up the piece I was suddenly riven from head to heel by what I regarded as a perfect thunder-bolt of humor, and I compressed it into a snappy foot-note at the Kittom, thus: "We will let this thing pass just this once; but we wish Mr. J. Gordon Runnels to understand distinctly, that we have a character to sustain, and from this time forth when he wants to commune with his friends in H 1, he must select some other me dium than the columns of this journal !" The paper came out, and I never knew any little thing to attract so much at tention as those playful trifles of mine. For once, the Hannibal Journal was in demand; a novelty it had not -experienced before. The whole town was stirred. Hinton dropjied in with a double barreled shot-gun early in the forenoon. When he found that it was an infant (as he called me), that had done him the damage, he simply pulled my ears and went away; but he threw up his situa tion that night and left town for good.

I,. Ortfla of the Water-Cure. The water-cure, or hydropathy; oe its origin to the fartility of invention-' mi a Silesian tieasant, Yincenz Priensnitr Having at the age of sixteen sprauieil his wnst, young l'nessnitz intuitively ai- plied ft tr the 'pump ; and afU-rw ard. to continue the relict thus obtained, he u.Udd uiKin it an idhbMivj, or wet Imnil- age. Jiewetuiig ihia as it ix-came dry. he reduced the inflammation, but excited a rash on the surface of the part. Soon after, having crushed his thumb, he again applied the bandage and the pain once more subsided, but the rah reap peared. He inferred tliat the rash indi cated an impure blood ; and thin con cl union was strengthened by tho Nwutt of exjieriments which he was Induced U try upon injuries and ulcers in .the cztue of some cf his neighbors, since 'the. rdi in some instances appeared after the treatment, and in others did not. Thus he was led to frame for himself ji hu moral pathology of all disease, and a doctrine of the elimination of morbific matters by "crisis." According to thia view, the cure of disease are to lie ef fected by favoring the activity of this organs through which the purification of the system is earned on, and, through a regulated and pure dietary and correct reirimen, preventing further morbid ac- I ..? r i . . . cumulations. ju ins iiiiieiet-iun year, lieing run over by a cart, l'ricssnitz hai some rilis broke, and received severe bruises: on leurninir that the din-tors pronounced his case hopt less, he tore off their bandages, and recovered under the renewed applicatioi of the umchbitf and replaced the ribs inflating tlie lungs while pressing the aodomen against a window-sill. This incident confirmed the idea and initiated the practice of the water-cure. A'jleUm o ( yvwjttnui. The (jraugc Meant Peace.
