Kx-Sunator M ihono, of Virginia, scored another failure this week Ho sent out invitations for a mini bur of Southern republicans to im ct in conference here, his object being to get himself endorsed for a posi tion in HarriHou's cabinet. When tho conference met it was soon learn ed that about three fourtliH of them wero bitterly opposed to the little ex-boss, nnd it was nil that he nnd his friends could do to prevent them from endorsing soino other fellew. A joint resolution re-nflirining tlio Monroe dootrinu" in connection with the building of tlio Pan una ca nal, has been iutro bicod in the Sen ate. In view of tho report that the French Govern men t would under take to compluto the Pinanu canal, such a resolution was neodo I, and tho sooner it iu unanimously passed the better. Huiiator Call presented an iinuionsn petition from residents of Florida asking for tho institution nn 1 main- tainanco in that state of a Federal system of quarantine, Ho also made a Htrong argument iu favor of such n system. Kx-Sunator Warner Miller seems to be getttng nlannod nbout his chanco of getting into II irrison's cab iriet. Ho wan here this week, con ferring with his friend iu order to get them to bring their inlluenea lo boar on Senator Q'lay, who is said to favor Piatt, in order t have him ro- main neutral during his visit to Har rison, wiiat succoas no met wnii nobody knows, as Quay ono of the fow men who do not announce bo- foroliand what they intend doing. There is n belief hero, however, that Quay will impress upon Hirrison the necessity of providing for Piatt, un less ho wants to get a little tiibto of the Garliold Colliding businoss. A curious thing happono 1 hero last week in connection with tho Union licilio Hiilro'id bill, Mr Ingalls hav ing decided that the bill for the fund ing of the debt of that road had the right of way, to the exclusion of ev erything else alter the tan I)' bill is disposed of. ('. P. Huntington, president of the Central a. id South ern Pacific, railroads, came hero nnd held a consultation with certain Sen ators, whom rumor says he controls. The nest day Senator Mitchell, of Oregon, introduced a bill which is particularly favorable to tlio Central and Southern roads. And now some people arc uncharitable enough to say that Mr Huntington wrote tho bill which Senator Mitchell introduc ed. A beycl llenilcil Voiinir Woman. h.'mM or i . nit it. A fast young man decided to make to a young lady a foimal offer of his hand and heart all he was worth hoping for a cordial reception. Put he was a cautious young man, nnd felt Ins way by putting a few quest ions to her. Did she lovo him well enough to livo in a cottage with him Was she a good cook? Did she think it a wife's duty to mako home happy 1 Would she consult his tastes and wishes con cerning her associates and pursuits in life? Was she economical 1 Could she make her own clothes? etc. The young lady said that before she answered his questions sho would asMiro him of some negr.tivo virtues sho possessed. Sho never drank, smoked nor chewed ; never owed a bill to her laundress or tailor : nevvr stayed out all night playing biiliirds; never lounged on the street corners and o;;li d giddy j,'irls ; never " stood in" with the boys for cigars nnd wii o suppers. " Now," said she, rising indignantly, " 1 am assured, by lho who know, tli it you do ad tlicM) tiling, and it is r itlmr id. surd f.r you to xpeet ail the virtues in ii: win!.! y.ui do n it MWess nn v vni II. j cm never le . your wife." and kIi b iwc I hi n out j and left him on tho c ! 1 doorstep.

Tlio Aiiiiexalli.il Question l.ooiiilnir l'i Over 'I lien. Slowly, but bitioly. publio interest from ono end of tho Dominion to tho other is being aroused over the talk of annexing Canada to the United States. Ten years ago the proposi tion would have been regarded as treasonable here, but there has been a marked change even il the past twelve months. The unntxntion question promises to dwarf all other political matters. It is practically the sole topic of conversation on tho streets, while the newspapers are do voting a great doul of attention to tho subject. The movement will meet with the greatett favor in tho maritime prov inojs of Ontario nnd Manitoba. Que bee, though populated by French Canadians, will be the greatest oppo nent of the scheme. This is attribu table to the conservatism of the Hu man Catholic church, which claims to enjoy the greatest liberties grant ed at the French conquest The Pro testants of Ontario very largely ts ponso tho cause, while another cle ment of the same reliirion will op pose it, owing to the sympathy of the Canadian Irish (JatuolicH, wuo, in large numbers, hate Pritish institu tions. Touo.nto, Ost , Oct. 5 Mr; Bras ilia Winian, whose announcement to tho Canadian press last Saturday that ho was informed that tho Senate Committee on Foreign Relations wero considering a proposition for tho annexation of Canada created such a Hatter, says that the informa tion came to him from such nn un doubted sourco and was doomed by him of such importance that ho con sidered it his his duty to soud the dispatch. Mr. Winuin also makes public a letter he received from John Sherman in which the Senator writes: "Your opinions are certainly cnti tied to great weight, and will receive full consideration. My own opinion has been for luauy yearn that political union between the United States aud Canada was inevitable, and that statesmen and patriots ought to look to bringing this nbout peacefully up on terms of perfect equality, nnd so as to promote (he interests of both countries. As to commercial union, I s(;o no practical way to bring t about. Wo will havo ainplo timo to think of this, as the subject matter will not iiL'ain bo bronirht up in the Senate until next session." Ho admitted that Senate commit tees were discussing a scheme for tho annexation of Canada, nnd said it would bo only n question of time whon it must become a part of the United States. Dili Electoral System. Tho Marshall Messenger, ono of the brightest among tho local news papers of Texas, takes strong ground against the proposition to abolish the electoral college and allow tho people to vote direct for president. "Such n change," insists tho Messenger, "would mean the complete destine tion of our present form of govern ment and the building up on its ruins a vast, centralism. Stales would bo converted into arbitrary divisions with no more sovereignty than counties, Washington would be the center of all power, like tho city of Mexico or Paris. State legislatures would not long-bo permitted. In fine, such a change would make the foundation of a despotism nnd wo would have a republic merely in name." Evident ly the Messenger labors under a mis apprehension with regard to the pro visions contained ill the proposition to chnngo the National election machiu- mi I 1 lt erv. Tlio cliangcs proposed, as illus trated recently by Mr. Carlisle, need not and would not in any way interfere with State lines. Each State would cast its vote precisely as it does at present, the different being that the popular voto would bo apportioned as cast between the difference candi- laies. These returns would be sent to Washington and consolidated, nnd the candidate fer president having the greatest number ol votes would be de- cl ro 1 elec'od. There could be no more centralism in this than there is iu the present system, and far less oppor tunity for fraud. The incentive to buy States would begone. Besides, the new system vonld in every elec tion have the effect to place in the presidential chair tho choice ot the people. The uecessitv which gives rise to the electoral college as at pres ent operated has passed away with the building of railroads ond tele graph lines, and there is no apparent good reason for longer clinging to what might pertinently bo termed a useless tradition. On the contrary, if th' csrcneo of p puhir government is to be feiind, ns claimed, in the pmieiple that the majority shall rule, the chanco mg-j.-sted should be madivHo.i.'.ton Post.

The lay of tho laud is what dark ness broods over. Times. Senator Palmer is writing a novel Cliinpso Ca.ro of tlio Body. Tho Chinese feel tho utmost repugnance to any mutilation of tho body, not on ac count of tho pain or tlio four of death, but beciuiso of the sentiment that It is a man's duty to keep intact, us far ns ho can, tho body which his pnronts havo be queathed to him. It forms part of that system of filial piety which is tho or thodox religion of China, nnd has ha-.l its slmro in producing the Chinese dislike of wars and revolutions.
