It is tltc rercral opinion in Jlaine tliat
Governor Garcrlon tvill not submit to the
Suprctr.e Court the questions propounded hy
cx-Gov. Merrill. The KepuUicans are pre
pared for this and an Ausutadespateli says
they "will present the question through a ma
jority of the mcmliers of the lost Senate, as
it is thought such 1 roeeedings would con
f nrmwWi ti'e 1 uv. Their disposition is to
exhauft every leal picans before others arc
rx-GorcnsoK 5Ioi:i:li l has submitted to
Onve.-i.or Garcclon a list of fourteen ques
tions ri1 i:'r.!r:o the technical points at issue
to be sub-.iitteil to the Siprcnic Court of

Tu: bill ijlroducrU in Congress byth
Optnl-u-Uer V.Yav.". to pjy all persons who
served in the army or navy during the last
war the dJTer'iiee ictwccn the value of the
ere. n'ae!;' in which tboy were paid and the
iab. of -n'd at that time, if it should be
crnic a vfould proba'oly nial;c the great
est raid ;:p n tli.- Trcamry ever known. x.x-
j-crts who hu e cvarnincd the provisions of
t're bill, and who have had access to me rcc
rrd of t'e Government, say that the bill
wyj'.d n .jure neaily a thousand millions of
dolltrs. Mr. Weaver asks for what the
Grcciibacl'-rs censi lcr a bagattlle of 5100,-
000,000 to lifgin it!i. Tlic average dc-
pn cation of greenbacks during the war was
about forty per cent, and on this basis the
a jir.imt to 1 e pii 1 by the Weaver bill to sol
di rs in. round numbers would lie $440,000,-
0 ) Hut the bill proidcs that interest shall
be computed on the difference in the value
cf greenbacks anil goldat six per cent, winch
would amount to fKiOOAOOO, or a grand
t tal under the bill of 6T92,OO0,00O. This U
for the army alone, and does not include the
navy. AdJing the navv, it is estimated that
the total required by the terms of the bill
would be iOOO.OW.fiOJ.
Tor Greenbackers, who think that all the
G ivcmmcne has to do to raic any quantity
of money is to run a few more printing
presses, the issue of a billion or two more
or less of greenbacks is a mere tnfle. But
other people, vlio believe that something
more than a Government sump is needetl to
make parcr into moi'cy, will be somewhat
staggered by the proportions of this scheme.

Tj the Dlaor or the Free Tres and Times :
An article copied in your paper from the
AtLtntic Monthly on the condition of farm
ers in Kansas led me to think, perhaps, your
readers might be interested in knowing some
thing of the tondition of that cla"s of people
in Southern California. The Atlantic
writer said the State officials of Kansas were
consulting as to the hot means of prowding
for the support of the destitute families the
coming Winter. But in this State now suf
fer for food, and the mildness of Ihe climate
precludes all ideucf MilTerirg from cold.
The population is made up of pen-ons from
every State in the Union, and from nearly all
quarters of the globe, and from all clasps
and conditions of society. Th? Vermontcr
is living neighbor to a ltuvuan, and Ihe re
duced banker, fioni an Eastern city, next
door to a Swiss peasant, a Swede or perhips
a native Californinn of the -'greaser" persua
sion. Of course from such a heterogeneous
mas U is hard to lay the foundations of law,
order and good society. A large projortion
are here for health, very few brought much
capital with them, and many, especially from
the Southwestern States of Tetis and Ar
kansas, had nothinar, being stripped by the
ravages of war, and were ii Ihe condition of
refugees uou nae-hiug this Stale. But near
ly all came with high hopes, not of being
contented with a comfortable livimr, but of
amassing a fortune ly some lucky stroke.
This is partly ihe fault of the local papers
which mainly paint only the far sid of ihe
picture, and chronicle the successes, but are
very tetieent upon the subjtct e-f
failures. Tlie diy for amassing wraith
speedily h past, and nearly all
who expeet it are doomed to th-appointmeut.
And from this fact, that clas who lack the
elasticity to recover fmm ill luck, as they
call it, join the great army of ehrcuic grum
blers, to he found everywhere, and stltlu
dow n in hoard lxies on the plfin-, a U Kan
fas ami live in comfortles-J, uninviting
homes whit nothing pleasant or attractive
alioiit them, and apparently determined that
thtre never shall be.
But alargcclasa lottt by experience and
learn to adipt their wants to the capabilities
of Ihe country, and nowhere in the United
State, I verily believe, can a family live
withies cxim-usc, so comfortably, and in a
measure, luxuriously even, if they will divest
themselves of the idea of Incoming rith,
an I be content with a inrnleratc but Meadily

At tho rcqur-t of Col. Mcud. Pi of.
Peter Collier, cf Washington, eketehed
the woik of the department of ngiicnl
tnre. The entomological division looks after
Ihe injurious insects that interfero with
agricultural crops, studies their habits
and seeks to devise and make known prac
tical remedies. Birds are also made the
subject of similar iijvcfitigations, and
their alno as iu'.'H'f-dcstroyrrs made
known. Tho mieroscopist studies and
reports en tho rusds, mildews and other
minute plauts that aflect our crop?, mi
nute insects of the same character, etc.,
etc. The statistician collects statistics of
crops from all parts of the nation, and
has other important duties. Ths chemist
analyzes iiititicial fertilizer, deposits of
urdnral fertilizing fubstantVH. useful and
iujtirious plants and plant prodneta, and
docs n great variety of other work for the
benefit tf tho farming comniuuitv. The
botanist makes a complete collection rf
all American plants, seeds, woods, etc.,
-tc, anil exchanges! specimens of these
with other nations.
Iu speaking of tfco work of thechtmi
cal department. Professor Collier nun
tioned the fingular fact Hint though tho
United States produces upwnrds of J-100,
OOibOOO worth of corn, and at least one
hundred and fifty varieties, no analyses of
corn have been maae uutu wiumi tbe
last few years. Ileccnt analyses mado al

show so much difference between them as
has been supposed to exist. When West

m-oliflhlv been because it was not tirfd

has recently made a soricE of analyses of
grasses to determine their oompnratne

of raising our own sugar, if possible, is a
very important one. the protessor as

Lo- Pixcs. Dec. 2S.- The commision ad-
journed ycstenhiy to meet on the 20th inst.
at Cline's ranche. twenty-live miles southeast
of the agency, there to await the arrival of
the prisoners! Hatch and escort left this
morning at four o'clock in a drizzling rain.
The five days extension expires the20lh,and
if all tho Indians demanded by the commis
sion are not surrendered thn, jK-acc negotia
tions will end. "AH or none" were Hatch's
parting words to Ouray, as he left the com
mission rooms yesterday for his ranch to
hold a final IndUn council, which ere this
has decided the fate of the Ule nation.
Ouray fully realizes tho situation and knows
the ultimatum of the commission h the de
mand of the nation, and if not complied
with the Utes must go. A surrender of the
prisoners is very doubtful. Chief Guero,
second to Ouray, bun a medicine man. has
a large following and has done more than all
ethers to hinihr the commission from accom
plishing its work. He is in favor of war,
and at the time of the White Itiver troubles
wanted to massacre the iople living in the
carrison and was only restrained by Ouray.
When Ouray leaves "for AWhingtcn there
will Ie no one left to restrain the young
bucks, and Gucro is so hostile to the whites
that he is liable to cut loose at any moment,
and thus Los Pino may lecome a second
White Iliver, unless forces are sent here

ammunition from the state arsenal at Bangor
and ship them by express to Augusta, lie

Loxdox, Dee. A iKrl!on of th- bridj-?
across the Frith of Tay was blown down
while a train from Blmburg to Dundee was
crossing last night. The gale was so strong
that stcamlioats were unable to reach the
scene of the disaster. There h no doubt
that the train is ia the water. The passen
gers, who arc supposed to be alldrowned,
arc estimated from onejuindrcd and fifty to
The gale having moderated soacwhat. the
provost of Dundee and a number of leading
citizens started ia a steamer to the scene bur
have not yet returned. The excitement at
Tay bridge station is appalling.
Xew Yoi:k, Doc. 2 . A tlespatch from
London says of the Dundee disi3ter, oa Sat
urday, that the train was bound for Dundee
aad iiad arrived safely at the south end of
the bridge crossing the Frith of Tay shortly
after seven. The bridge was intact at the
time, for !i-nal? were given t allow the train
to cros?. Tlie wires were interrupted a few
minutes thereafter and no fo.rthcr communi

the disaster large quantities of wreckage and
clothing and si London mail bags for Dim

by rine o'clock all the lieac'i wa3
f-trcwa with remains of the broken
carriages and pieces of bridge work. It

of thltrgest girders of Ihs bridge wre
blown down, but the full extent of the dis
aster will not be known until to-morrow.
Several parlies are looking for bodies com

somewhat an effort is being made by some
of the jieoplt of Dundee lo reach the" scene
