M. M. Ham, one of the editors of the Dubuque Herald, is a member of the lowa Semite. Me delivered an eloquent and aide address in that body a few days ago, favoring the abolition of the grand jury system. The several “hops” given in this city during the dancing season passed oil very pleasantly, and to the credit of those having them in charge he it said that more pleasant social gather ings could not have been gotten up any where. The masquerade parly given in Kn gel’s Hall on Monday night was a very pleasant affair. The costumes were first-class; the Matthews P.ro thci'e furnished good music and every body who participated enjoyed them selva! exceedingly well. It’s a pity the bill introduced into the legislature making insanity “an offence punishable wilh death,” didn’t pais and become a law. IVK ‘ l| .v ” 1 ’ poor follows whose clarion tones were hoard in (lie halls of legislation would know those halls no more forever. The predictions of (ho “weather prophets” wore correet for this w inter with a few exceptions: Instead of iiavimr cold stormy weather, and snow several feet deep, as predicted, we have had warm weather during the whole winter and scarcely anv snow at all. The editor of the ITairiodu Obion Courier .says that I,ho Courier is the spiciest paper in I,ho Northwest.

The eoliimns of a newspaper should not bo used for l!n purpose of repeal ing scandal, 01 for wrangling over pet ty grievances. We believe our cor respondents understand this, as very few of tin in Head in anything for publication which is not of interest to their neighbors and tin l public gen orally.

The editorial notes oi the Tribune are first-class but it is a singular co incidence, that they always appear in some of the daily papers several days before the Tribune is published. At the last meeting of the Reform Club, i'uesday night, a vote of thanks was passed tv the committee and all who took pud in (lie pupllc enter tainment of the With ult.

Th.‘ people have at last, after mature de liberation consented to take cash for the things they have to sell. But for tlio commodities tl.cy have to bay they are not so particular, hut are willing to pay out of their own pockets such articles as ready-made clothing, that has been ready for the last t-.vdity years; fresh sugar from the sand banks of Newfoundland; boots and shoes manufactured out of split doth, with pasteboard soles <ak tanned; fur bats and caps made from beav.-rs that have been killed for million; prints with f;-t colors, so very fast you < a n’t keep you eye on ilu m: butter made from the under side of milk; eggs that have been weaned fur the last six months. I say they have adopted the cash system after mature deliberation; for responsibilities of infinite magnitude surround the commerce of the world, and any one who presumes to make innovations; on the established laws of trade incurs a fearful risk, and should not attempt it without fasting and prayer. j Suppose when the I). vil ;fc up his I apple stand and opened up bu-dm: s in his jungle tent on the hanks of the Miiphiales, that ho had adopted the cash system, where would the modern lape-atrclehers aiwl butter chuckers.bu to-day y When live, went to the store with her market basket to pet a few apples (•) make a pic and bird’s-nest for Adam, if the clerk bad told her they hail adopted the cash system, I hat house would have been thrown into j involuntary bankruptcy in less than seventy-two hours; and no time since that data would there have been any demand for ready-made clothing or dn ss roods. The commerce of the world would from that day forth have consisted in ambrosial fruit, growing i spontaneously in every man’s door | yard. There would now be no stim ■ ulus to labor or enterprise. Ministers of the gospel and school teachers could play all the day long in the shade of their rtspective temples and towers without lining obliged to earn their bread by the sweat of their wits. The turtle dove and young lion could lie down and eat grass together and a j little lamb could lead them. The soft ; eyed missionary could walk through I the islands of the cannibals, jingling I bis penny contributions in his pocket, 1 without the smell of lire on nts gar* j meats. to and fro in j (he o,utli and walk up and down in it j without having his life insured; mid i the Jew and the swine could walk arm inarm together up to the synagogue without being obliged to dodge the stone tablets of .Moses; and Aaron’s calf would have continued to bud and would have escaped the voracious ap L petite of tin' prodigal son, .lob’s skin-worms would have developed into charitable ravens that would have fed him on tin;cast wind; and there would have been no necessity for the Indian to change his*skins for government rations, or the Klhiopian his sp its, The wh ale world would now he smiling likea ten rent Christian who lead escap ed l he contribution box,and a thousand years to Sunsan i>.
