Our impression of yesterday contained the announcement that the Prince of Wales and his suite had sailed for Earope. His visit seems to hsve been anclouded by any disaster or drawbaok, and has s gnally failed to verify the propheeiee of the croakers. There seems •very prospect that he will in a few weeks be once more in the midst of bis remarkably happy domestio circle. It wonld be well if as much could be said for all who accompanied hi—- One of them ie, on the contrary, destined to find that his wife has taken ad vantage of bis absence to forget her marriage vows, and to assist in creating the greatest Mandai of the kind whioh has occurred in English society since the revelation as to Lady Mord aunt Five years ago there were celebrated in Westminster Abbey, gt the same time, the ntarrugee of two beantifal sisters, the young out daughters of ihe Duke of Abercorn. Lady Albertha Hamilton, the Prince Consort's god daughter, became the wife of the Marquis of Blaudford, and Lady Maude, Marohiouess of Lansdowne. Nothing was want ng to give oelat to these nuptials, whioh had a strong •romaof historic interest about them. The brides were of a prinoely house, renowned in Hoottish story, and the ancestors of the bride grooms had played no inconsiderable part in the page of English history. The heir to the throne and his beantifal wife wore among the crowd of notables pres ent at the ceremony in the Abbey, and when the bridal party adjourned from that vener able fane it was to a feast in a stately and no ble mansion, fall of associations—Chesterfield House. No marriages could have com menced, apparently, under brighter auspices, but, unfortunately, so far as one of them was eonoemed, the happiness was of very brief duration. The misconduct of Lord ß land lord toward his wife has for a long time been a matter of olnb and drawing-room gossip. Of latf they have been living apart, though without any formal separation, and those ac quainted with his character will feel small surprise at the announcement of his elope ment with the wife of another man. Nor will there be any exoees of sympathy for that other man, inasmuch as he is the Earl of Aylesford. A weaker, more inferior speci men of hie own or any other class opnld scarcely be found. When a little over age he married a giddy, extravagant girl, one of a family whioh has f ud a most pernicious influence on fashion able society, and soon after succeeded to his father's title and estates. It was then found that he had 'been for years borrowing on poet-obits to snob an extent that had his lia bilities to the Jews been paid in fall, he wonld have scarcely had an income to sup port himself. So he sought the aid of Chan cery, and the Lord Chancellor quashed the exorbitant rates charged, bat at the same time amde reflections ot the most catting severity on Lord Aylesford. Lord Sslbome's com ments, however, served to neither make Lcrd Aylesford prudent nor to oool the friendli ness of the Prince of Wales toward him. In 1872 the papers announced that the Prince, aooompanied by CoL Williame, Lady Aylesford's brother-in-law, had gone down to Paekington Hall, Lord Aylesford's seat, where a very "fast" company, a battue, and a great ball awaited him. It was from Paekington that the Prinoe and Princess last year pro ceeded to pay a state visit to Birmingham. Wore farther proof wanting of the Prince's regard for Lord Aylesford. it may be found in ihe ehoiee of him as one of his companions in India. It is the most nnfortnnate feature of the Prinoe of Walea's life that he makes such a very bad ehoioe of friends. A rascally card sharper like Major Hat bord, and a foolish spendthrift like Lord Aylesford, are ad mirably oalonlated to bring any one intimate with them into disrepute, and these are only two ont of many, little superior to them, with whom the Prinoe has been wont familiarly to It has been often said that a far lower tone for the last ten years prevailed in English high life than in the preceding de cade, but the torn for the worse is rather in the sbape of the growth of a certain small, excessively vioions section of the aris tocracy, whioh hae unfortunately surrounded the Prince, than in a general deesy of moral ity in the upper class. But, without a doubt, the death of the Prinoe Consort and the re tirement of the Qieen have had a very bad affeot, by removing an admirable example in the highest place. This lsst scandal can hardly fail to result in a doable divorce, and it is to be hoped may bavo the efifeot of •wakening the Prinoe ot Wales to a sense of the necessity of breaking finally away from 'that disreputable circle which brought so mach discredit on him as "'the Marlborough Hoorn set"— N. Y. Times. Monster Guns. The London limes, in a late able artio'e, <>.h«t it is gradually becoming apparent that every addition of weigbt oarried for the gftf ftpaa of a ship most be attended with a cer tain diminution of armament, unless the size of the vessels, in the present model, be cor respondingly increased," or, in simpler words, the construction of tbo gnns as to sizs and deatruotiveneaa of projectiles has advanced twyond the methods of defense. England hoc bas gnns mounted on shipboard weigh ing thirty-eight tons, firing 800-ponnd pro jectiles, with 130-pound charges. The mnz ale velocity of this 800-pound shot is about 1425 feet per seoond, whioh represents a muz ale energy of 11,260 foot tons, or 289 foot tons per inch of the shot's oironmferenoe. As to the penetration of snch projectile at 1000 yards, it would go through the thickest part of any iron-clad. Enormous as may be considered these thirty-eight-ton gnns, they are insignificant, at least when compared with an English eighty-one ton gun, the muzzle loading velocity of whioh is estimated at 1540 feet with a charge of 230 pounds of powder, and a projectile of 1230 pounds. These won derful results are perhaps due to the better knowledge we have obtained of the size of the grains oi powder to be used, and a graduating force of explosive materials. A bag of onion Med wonld very fairly represent the charge of a sixty-eight pounder of 1855, while a sack of potatoes would not be a bad parallel to sug gest the size of the charge in the eighty-one ton gun of 18~6 ___ Wants and To Bentinsertedin the BuLLxnxfor BRUM1DTS BONANZA. A WOHDXBFCL PAINTEB WAXING RICH AT UNCLE SAM'S EXPENSE. [From the Philadelphia Times.] Presidents may come and Congresses may go, bat Brniuidi goes on forever. He is a sort of artiatie Melcbisedec, without beginning or end of days. No man oan remember when be was not painting in the Capitol; no man oan foresee the time when he will not be painting atilL Architects and engineers, ar tists ana statesmen, have raged against him, bat they imagined only a vain thing, for Brumidi has withstood them alL Years and yean ago there was a convention held, a com mission appointed, and Brnmidi's reign ap peared to be at an end; the next winter he was punting away as gaily as ever, and bis impossible CnpidB smile down in flerision upon his enemies. Suoeeseive library oommittees have plotted rebellion,, bat when they went further they usually fared worse, and Brumidi was soon back again. He has covered more square miles of spaoe, with s greater variety of sub ject, than any painter since the world began. Baphael in the Vatican was a fool to Brumidi in the Washington CapitoL High np in the lofty dome, or down in the darkest corridors, where no foot bat that of the watchman ever treads, Brumidi paints away, coveting the walls with men and women, and gods and goddesses, and birds and beasts ana fi-wers. There is nothing that he can touch that he does not ornament, and few places are ex empt from hia touch. Cellar or ceiling, floor, wall or stairway, it is all the same to Brnmidi. By the yard or by the mile, by the week or by the year, he paints on, paints ever. How 'it is all paid for, goodness only knows. That it is paid for is certain, for Brumidi has grown rieh; and that it is paid for by Uncle Sam is equally certain; but under what item of the appropriation bill his remuneration comes, no fellow ever eonld find out. ■ There have been investigations without number, but the most daring Congressman has never pre sumed to investigate Brnmidi. We learn from the Washington papers that Brumidi has just completed another lot of gorgeons paintings in the Senate wing. There is one of Las Casas, surrounded by savage na tives, in the act of writing a letter home; there is one of the French and American com missioners adjusting the cession of Loniaiana; there is one of Colnmbns discovering America; there is one of Lycargos, Justice, and some other aged parties for the edifica tion ot the Committee on the Bevision of the Laws, and so on through a long catalogne. Brnmidi did them all, and we can imagine how exquisitely absurd they must be. One would suppose that, having by this time painted everything that ever happened and many more things that never oonld happen; having painted everybody's portrait and the portraits of all the beasts of the field and foifls of the air and fishes of theses; having filled the Capitol from cellar to dome with the most astonishing creations, Brnmidi wonld be almost ready to lay down .the palette and the brash. But one who supposed anything like that oonld have no conception of the boundless possibilities of genius. There are miles and miles of space yet to be covered. _ There are galleries and corridors, cellars and sub cellars, ante-rooms, coat-rooms, wash-rooms, and out-of-the-way corners without number that have not yet felt the vivifying touch of art, and nnnnmbered chairmen or prospect ive chairmen of committees who have not yet been portrayed; and while all these worlds remain to be conquered and the appropria tions are year by year renewed shall Brnmidi desist ? Perish the thought ! Let him paint forever; and when other centuries have rolled around, and the New Zealander shall come to sit npon the rains of the Capitol, he will find Brnmidi there before him painting sportive little cherabs upon some crumbling fragment of those marble walls. The troth of the classic adage, "Art is long," was never fully shown till Brnmidi came. All art is long, but Brumidi's art is interminable. SPRING WEATHER TO ORDER. It is proposed by a reverend and scientific gentleman in Kentucky to abolish Winter— the very thing which Nature seems to have been trying to do this season. Mr. Wool folk, of Lexington, expects to secure a constant snpply of ethereal mildness by firing gnns. Under the genial influences of his explosions flowers will bloom, sweet showers will de scend, trees will bad, birds will mate, aud early green peas be sold in the market at rea sonable prices. We do not know that we ex aotly understand Mr. Woolfolk's theory, but we have found it highly impressive, like most things whioh we don't exactly understand. However, we are told that in the North Tem perate Zone there are two currents — the tropioal and the polar. The more of the first which we have the warmer we grow; the more of the second we have the colder we grow; we hope nobody at this time of day will dispute these indispat able facts. What yon want to make a lovely, open winter, with no sleighing, no skatjng, and no frozen noses, and with a plenty of fevers, is minus Polar and pins. Tropical. There is a wind blowing from the Tropic of Oanoer, of the southwest sort, and this is nice and comfortable; there is another wind blow ing on the top of this from the N. P., and this means overcoats. The Polar carrent cannot get down to ns and produce that fa miliar pnenomenou, " the coldest day of the season," exoept by cutting a hole in the Tropioal. Through this it "pours its volume," and sometimes a large number of volumes. When it manages to elbow its way throngb, then is the time to bring ont the furs and umbrellas. The P. C. and the T. C., as we nnders'and it, are not npon gqod terms and don't readily mingle in social intercourse, and that ie why we have "convulsions of the elements." The Tropical's way is to rise higher and higher, until it becomes "embanked," being in this respect exactly like a Wall street capitalist This obstructs Polar's flow, and both being "re-inforcedfrom behind," like a Brigadier General in difficulties, the Polar outs through the Tropical, and " discharges its mass through the storm track." Tnis the Rev. Mr. Woolfolk proposes (not being a bit afraid of it) "to confine to a given area." How is be to do this? As many other things are done—"by explosions of gunpowder." All that is needed is " a day's cannonading. " This will always "break a vortex" The tropioal carrent is weakened. The polar current passes peaceably along about its busi ness. All is Berenn The oldest inhabitant says that he never knew snch a mild winter. Goal bills are reduced to a minimum. Opera tions in the principal mines are suspended, and yet the miners, under the sootbiog influ ence of the weather, are as peaceful as so many black lambs. All you need is " à series of cannonades." All yon have to do is to fire away and fire frequently. We have a suspicion that we have not ex plained Mr. Woolfolk's plan very satisfacto rily; but, ct any rate, we are sure of the guns. These will $ive a touch of festivity to the operations, and make the dullest winter day lively. Being asked at what point he wonld ereot his experimental batteries, Mr. Wool folk answers largely: "I would select the Paoific Ocean. I would erect a battery on the Alenin Islands. The southerly wind would sweep constantly the Atlantic, driviDg before it the warm surface waters into the Arctic and out through Behring's Srraits into the Pa cific !" And all this time the Rtv. Mr. Wool folk, with his assistants, is working his bat teries on the Aleutian Islands. "lee and snow," he says, "would soon disappear." We should think so, and be glad to do it. We dare not venture to speculate upon the physical, moral, and social changes which 1 will be produced by Mr. Woolfolk's astonish ing cannonade. Our first impoli if Ute I to look into onr Buckle, to sec if the change might not be followed by earthquakes; m whioh case we should recommend a fortification of the Aleutian Islands to keep Mr. Woolfolk and his gnns from landing and being landed. We are rather doubtful about the expediency of permitting any gentleman, however scientific, thus to take the weather of the world into his keeping. The Meteorologioal Gunner of the Universe would hold a place of great trust; and when a man calmly takes possession of the Pacific Ocean with a view to taking possession also of the Atlantio and Arctic Oceans, not to men tion Behring's Straits, we are not sure that it is not a matter for Mr. Secretary of State, or at any rate for the Weather Bureau. There is no knowing what mischief Mr. Woolfolk may do with his gnns; nor how dreadfully he may disturb the peace of the world by his rash experiments.— N. Y. Tribune. THE TULIP MANIA. Of all things in the world in which to make a oorner, to excite a speculation, to be puffed by brokers, it would seem ae if flowers would be the lsst But that a whole nation should grow mad over bulbs; that the indus try of a people should be turned aside from the pursuit of agriculture to that of horticul ture, and that the mania should spread irom the phlegmatic Dutchman to the phlegmatic Englishman, seems almost incredible. Yet in the beginning of the seventeenth century the desire for tulips had so spread over Eu rope that no wealthy man considered bis gar den perfect Without his rare collection of tulips. From the aristocracy the rage spread to the middle and the agricultural olasses, and merchants and shopkeepers began tb vie with each other in the rarity of their flowers and in the prices paid for them. A trader at Haarlem was actually known to pay half his fortune for a Bingle root, not from any expectation of profit in its propaga tion, but to keep it in his conservatory for the admiration of his acquaintances.* The first tulip seen in Earope was beheld as Augsburg, in Germany, in 1559, and Was imported from Constantinople, where it had long been a favorite. Ten or eleven years after this the plant was in great demand in Holland wnd Germany. Wealthy burghers ot Amsterdam sent direct to Constantinople for their precious bulbs, and piid extravagant prices for them. The first roots planted*in England were brought from Vienna in the year 1600, and were considered a great rarity. For thirty years tulips oontinned to grow in reputation. One wonld suppose there most have betn some virtue in this flower that made it so valuable in the eyes of so prudent a people as the Dutofa. Yet it has neither the beauty frot the per fume of the violet nor the fragrance of the rose. It hardly possesses the beanty of the bumble sweet-pea. Its only recommendation is its aristocratic Stateliness, and this should hardly have commended it to the only demo cratic republic on the globe. But it is by no means the first time that fashion has turned ugliness into beaaty and rarity into wealth. In 1634 the rage for tulips among the Dutch was so great that the ordinary industry of the country was neglected, and the whole people turned to the production of tulips. As this mania increased, prices increased With it, until in 1635 merohants were known to have s pent $40,000 in.the purchase of forty tulips. At this time each species was sold by weight. A tulip of the kind known as the Admiral Lietkio, and weighing 40G grain«, would sell for $1800; the Admiral Von der Eycke, weigh ing 460 grains, was worth $500; a Viceroy of 400 grains would bring $1200. Most precious of all, a Sempef Augustas, weighing only 200 grains, was thought to be eheap at $2200. This last epeoies was mach sought a'ter, and even an inferior plant wonld readily sell for $800. When this species was first known, in 1636, there were' only two roots of it in Holland, and those not of the beet. One belonged to a dealer in Amster dam, and the other was owned in Haarlem. So anxious were tbe purchasers for this new variety that one person offered twelve acres of valuable building land for the Haarlem tulip. That of Amsterdam was sold for $1840, anew carriage, two gray horses, and a com plete suit of harness. * As a specimen of the value of these bulbs we give the actual copy of a bill of sale of certain articles given in exohange for one single root of the Viceroy species: Two lasts of wheat........................ 1179 Two laste of rye.......................... 223 Four fat oxen............................. 192 Eight fat affine........................... 96 Twelve fat sheep......................... 48 Two hogsheads wine..................... 28 Four tone beer........................... 19 Two tone batter.......................... 77 One thousand pounds cheese.............. .48 One Bait otothee.......................... 92 One silver cap............................ 24 Tntal................................. »1,000 Since that day tnlips have declined in value, but wine, batter and cheese have decidedly advanced.— Harper's Magazine.

Hour Dukes and Princes Live« [lohn Paul in the New York Tribune.] Aa for the noble swells themselves, from what Fve seen of them (though perhaps one can very little judge of what people, actually are by simply meeting them in tbe oourt cir cles, aud the glare of fashionable drawing rooms) I should say they are not a bad lot, generally speaking, and that in the main they are well behaved, less given to putting on frills than one would suppose, con sidering all the fuss made over them. Their houses, as a rale, are not at all the palaees which an ardent republican imagination pic tares. The Duke of Marlborough's doesn't begin with the honse I had in Brooklyn. The Bishop of Brooklyn's residence wonld pnt the Bishop of London's to the blush, were the brick of the latter not ro dingy that its red is invisible brown. The Duke of Norfolk's town-house you would inventory as but a cheap boarding house in passing it casually by. Apsley House, famous for the Waterloo banquets given there in the Duke of Wellington's time (bloody good dinners they ought to have been), is a sort of sarcophagus externally, and I would about, as soon think of trying to be jolly in the Bntish Museum, among the Abyssinian antiquities. Evan Buckingham Palace, where the blessed Qieen eats her royal mutton, has no point of architectnral beanty to bang a recollection on. Marlbo rough House. Wales's wigwam (what you can see of it), has rather a jollier face, and pass ing by it the other day, I saw "loh Dien" written on the gate. Supposing this meant that the Prince Was at dinner, I didn't go in to disturb him; but I have since learned (the newspapers let it out once in a while) that he was and is in India. Wales, by tbe way, seems a great favorite with the people, not withstanding that he owes something more than a half million pounds. He is a good fellow and spends his money freely, they say. And there is not one of his specially-appointed wig-makers or p mdowdy bakers probibly who would refuse even now to trust him. But the Duke ot Eiiuburg, who I had supposed was anchored deeply in the popular heart, has no hold there at all. As the "Sailor Prince," a ms j es tic tar, he was onoe in excellent odor ; but now that they have him on shore the savor is less sweet in the nostrils of this commonalty, and they ac cuse him of being " mean "—parsimonious in his mode of life. Certainly he comes of thrifty parentage enough, the private fortune of the queen mother, accumulated by saving, being estimated at some millions of pounds—four or five, I think. With this money on hand, and employing v;r> little of it in business, one would think tbe good lady might dower off her daughters as occasion makes necessary, without calling on the nation to do it« on ' INSURANCE. jyjECHANICS' AND TRADERS' INSURANCE X COMPANY, Ne. 14 Carotatotot Street.] SIXTH ANNUAL STATEMENT.
