There never was a time when fio many buzz trds were gathered together nt the national capi tal as at the present time. There i3 scarcely a bloated monopoly in the land that not ngents, with their pockets full of money, hanging around f he capital and the Presidential mansion, using their influence to prevent any change in the revenue laws. Through their influence nnd money no leg islation will take place that will in the least prevent their employers from' continuing to pocket the hard earnings of the people without consideration. The monopolists control the White House, and the White House, through its patronage controls Congress; and nothing whaiever will be done that will in the least iniure the chances of Grant for a re-nomination. The grand' Trunk Kailwny in Canada is now laying down steel rails at M5 perNton, de livered. On this -side of the la'kes the Americans are laying steel rails at $100 per ton.

" it was all about a pair of pantaloons, and is to, end in a divorce .suit.' The case in hand is as follows: lor instnnce.a Davenport legal gen tleman went out one evening last' week to' have a quiet game of billiards." He stack to his Cue for several faithful hours, convivialized with hiri friends still longer,- and then went home. ' On retiring to rest, he was most' - ihgtik4y iwieaay, Unci loaded about r Voine time without dropping into' that peaceful slumber we usually derive from a clear? conscience. His lady was annoyed and com plained kindly. It w as no use however; something droVe sleep from' his eyelids. At this juno ture his lady wa3 suddenly ta ken ill (how fortunate that he was awake;) and he was ap pealed to to hasten to the nearest drug store in quest of a fe'stors ative. He hastily attired him self, double-quicked down street rushed into a store, ob tained the articles so urgently required, and. produced his pocket-book. : Great Caesar! what had transpired? He had never seen that wallet before; and the pants! they were not his own.. Conld.it be possible he was in his right mind? Was it not rather -all a distempered dream? lie resolved to see, and without stopping to take the remedy with him', he rush ed back to the wife of his bo som. He did not flourish a re volver; He did not smash furniture, lie did not strike attidudes like a gladiator. He simply took part in the follow ing conversation: "'Jam-?' 'Yes; dear.' 1 'How are you feeling,, 'Better. Much better. I think a good sleep is all I now need. How kind of you to go to so much trouble. ' 'Very kind,' wasn't it?' 'Very kind, honey.' 'Jane, shall I turn on tlie gas? If you like dear.' The gas was turned on. Jane?' 'Yes, dear.' 'Does 'these loot like my pantaloons' ' 'Why, what can you mean, dear!' . . 'I mean, do these resemble the trousers I wore home this evening. ' .. 'Why, how can I tell, dear?' and Jane raised up with some surprise- and reluctance, and gave a quick glauce,and scream ed outright: 'Husband !' said she with some embarrassment,1 'you're made a ri'diculous mistake, somewhere, while out with your friends. What on earth have you been doing to-night?' . 'That's rather thin, Jane; we do' not usually take off our pants to play billiards. When I went to bed. to-night, I laid my proper pantaloons on that chair. When I dressed lo go out, the pair I have on first fell in my way. I put them on, and discovered at the store they were not mine. I return ed at once, and now I find the pair I left on the chair are mis sing.' ; Jane began to sob, weep-and protest her innocence, while the husband paced the floor iu deep reflection. 'Jane,' nt last he said, "I guess you can go home to your parents to-iuofrow. You and I ..have gotten along very well, for a year or ' two, but the thing's played. And down stairs he went with a deaf ear to the frenzied appeals and prayers she': show ered after him. An investiga tion on the morrow disclosed the fact that the mysteriously procured pantaloons contained just four hundred dollars more than the pair bad so myste riously walked off. J'nne left on the first train for ber Illinois home; abill of divorce has been filed, and no one has called to exchange pantaloons and pocket-book. GERMAN CITIZENS. Carl Schurz in Reply to Aspersions on German- on German-American Citizens. Carl Schurz,' in one of his numerous speeches on tlie French arras swindle, was in terrupted by one. of the Grant Senators with a small sarcasm in regard to his German nativ ity. The taunt struck: fire, and Schurz responded id this bit of eloquence: Let me tell the Senator from Kew Jersey that although certainly am not ashamed of having sprung from that great liermau nation whose monu ments stand so proudly upon all the battle -fields of thought; that great nation which, having translated her mighty soul in fo action, seems at this moment to hold in her hands the desti nies of the old world; that great nation which for centuries has seufc abroad thousands and thousands of her children upon foreign shores with their intel ligence, their industry,"their spirit of good citizenship; while 1 am by no means ashamed of being a son of that nation, yet I may say I am proud to be an American citizen. This is my country. Here my children were born. Here I have spent the best years of my youth' and manhood. All the honors I have gained, all the aims of my endeavors, and whatever of hope and piomise the future has tor me, it is all encompass ed in this my new fatherland My devotiou to tins great lie public will not yield to that "of the benator from JNfevv Jersey, nor to that of any. member of this body, nor to that of any man born in this country.. I wo'nid not shrink from it. And, sir, for this very reason I want, with every means within our reach, to have that spot wash ed off with' which, apparently, the good name of this Repub lic has been soiled. The Senator also intimated yesterday that the German- born American citizens could not entirely forget their old fatherland. Possibly not; but I ask him, should they forget it? Does he not know that those who would meanly and coldly forget their old mother could not be - expected to be faithful to' their young bride$ Manifestations of applause iu the galleries. Surely, sir, the Germau-born citizens of this country have demonstrated their lidelity in the hour of danger. When the President of the United States called up on the faithful sons' of the lie- Eublic to step forward and to rave death on the field of bat tle. methinks the German citizens' were not "among the last to respond to the summons. Nay, in some places they were even among the first, nnd it is with pride that I point to the State of Missouri, the key of the Mississippi Valley, which, by the prompt action and en ergetic patriotism of its German-born citizens, was nt the commencement of the wav, saved to the Union. No, sir; their thought of the old father land did not stand in the way of their fidelity to the new; and even at the time when, by the great events which were' taking place on the other side of the ocean, their sympathies were so powerfully aroused,- when their fears and hopes concern ing those they had left behind !were worked up to the highest pitch;1 even then I may say it with pride there was not a German in1 this country who, in all that excitement, for a moment forgot that he wns an American citizen, and that his first duty was the observance ot the laws of this Republic- No; sir; let not their patriot ism be doubted, even in a case like this they Bhould desire that friendship is to exist between the American Republic and the great tlerman nation on the other - side f the ocean, a friendship which may become so fruitful of good faith mutual confidence; and untarnished honor. 'Runs Out in Seven Years.' There is a prevailing opin ion,1 in certain localities, .that vaccination will "run out" in Seven Years; and that persons who would shield themselves from the small -pox, should re peat the process ofrvaccjniitton once iu every seven years. That this opinion is erroneous, we do not enteitain the shadow of a doubt. As well might we insist that a person would be liable to a second attack of small-pox, or any other con tagious disease, alter seven years. J. he theory of "running out is not founded on pathological principles, hut is strictly a chimney corner . physiology that will not bear the test of ence, reason or experience. We would caution all, how ever, to he careful" to know that yaccinhation has taken once, thoroughly, and when this is affirmatively settled, all may dismiss their fears about small-pox. That varioloid may occasion ally occur after effective vac cination, we admit, but after the patient has had the small pox it may also occur; but in neither case will it be severe nor dangerous. We think the' above views will be endorsed by the medi cal profession, generally; Germans, Read! TKoTsT .aV.1 xir .A. ' I Jk.llAJ-w3 VJ i UUU U orgiiu, aaya "Soliurz left his na tive country tor hid country good." It forgets Mr. Scli'urz resigned a lucrative ministry to come home and engage in the war with the pay of a colonel. The Washington Republi can, the administration organ, call the Germans "Hessian hordes, ever ready to follow where plunder promises to re ward the treason of patrol pa triots like the early Schurz. Tne survivors of Schurz's Di vision of the Eleventh Army Corps are referred to those who thus slander their gallant leader nnd the German name. Schurz, Trumbull, and their associates in the U. S. Senate, are knocking tremendous holes m the hulk of the administra tion party. Grant and his friends gare beginning to feel the effects of the blows, and are alarmed at the riddling the administration is receiviug. The country is rapidly coming to the conclusion that a change is necessary. A petition was presented in the House Of 'Representatives at Columbus, from Union coun ty, for a law to prevent the ex termination of the "animal known as the skunk." Wholly unnecessary elect the animal to Congress; they are preserv ed there. How Trees Breathe. Animals inhale air for the oxygen, which vitalizes the blood. Leaves of plants are lungs of a rudiraental charac ter, but nevertheless very ex traordinary instruments. They absorb carbon from the atmos phere, which is destructive to animals, and expire oxygen, which all organized breathing creatures must have or die. Wisconsin is getting up a first-clas gerrymander,- and it tries the ingenuity of the Rad icals fearfully; .They solved one' of the difficult points by putting 158,000 population in the Democratic district,- and making a Radical district with only 80,000" population. At this rate we will -soon have more rotten boroughs repre sented in the House than iu the Senate Canine Ravages on the Sheepfold. Official reports show iti O; an annual los3 of 3,000,000 in sheep killed by dogs, and near ly $1,000,000 in injuries a loss equivalent to 6,000,003 pounds of wool or tax of two per cent, npon the total sum invested in sheep in that State,' It is said : that in two years, from 1868 to 1870, Illinois sank from the sixth to the ninth rank, among the States in the number and value of its sheep; and 'this great fallipg off is' at-, tributed to; a proportionate in ' crease In the u ruber 'of dogg, and the lack of proper legisla tion to prevent their ravages among the. sheep.
