Tns suicides throughout the United Stktes now average about nine a week. The New York Courier and Enquirer esti mates the value of the crops of the country, ex clusive of coal and gold, at $1,600,500,000. ... ?: Douglas' speech contained 7,100 words, and cost the New York Times precisely seven cents a word, or $+97 in the aggregate. That's the way (ice) newspapers spend the money. Some of the papers put a very uncharitable construction upon the item "that Piccolotnini goes to Russia this winter for a large figure." What signification do they give the.phrase? ^ ? Hugh IIduley, a very respectable family man, and foreman of a soap factory in Buffalo, N. Y., fell into a vat of boiling lye last week arid was boiled to death. Tme New York Independent states that the leading silk and fancy dry goods auction houses in New York "hammered off" last year on six month's credit the enormous amount in value of $3,000,000 of foreign merchandise, consisting mostly of silks, ribbons and printed goods. Tiib St. Louis Democrat censures the citizens for their general apathy in the matter of erect ing a suitable monument to the memory of Benton?an cUterpriso in which some steps were taken shortly after the death, since when nothing lias been done. Tuekb is no end to queer epitaphs. The author of the following, (which the papers say was actually copied from a tombstone in Ster ling, Miss.) must have had a rather matter of fact turn of mind : "As she on her bed of sickness lar. Her friends stood wce'pinir round; She not a word to them coul \ bay. No medicine could they j:et down " The Ladies' Visitor for September announces a "novelty" dress. It is composed of two mate rials-?for instance, red velvet and moire antique, and lias, it is said, a "piquant effect." The "Alice Maude" is a new outer garment. It is made with a deep pointed yoke at the back, and plain in front. The buck is galheicd into three box?plaits upon the y?ke, and the front is fashioned so as to admit of the arm being raised without displacing it ungracefully. Skirts are woin much longer behind than in front; flounces aro altogethei disused for the promenade, and the double jupe is worn on all occasions. Circulars are made of white barege and of white Marseilles; the former trimmed with colored quilting-=, and the latter with white fringe. Walking dresses of black and white plaid or stripe, with dusters to match, will be extensive ly worn. Gaudy culors are utterly discarded by all persons ol good taste, especially for the pio menade. Slippers are always ornamented by rosettes of ribbon or buckles and flat bows, the ends trimmed with lace. Bonnet ribbons are in great variety, the favo rite pa turns being two stripes?one white, and the other some rich figure in colors. Another style of ribbon is in blocks of various colois on a white ground. A Philadelphia correspondent of the Cincin^ nati Gazette has considerable to say about the literary celebrities who have figured about Philadelphia. He commences with the late Judge Conrad, the former President of the ilempfield road, a position by the way, that he never was fitted to fill. It seems that the Phil adelpliians are about to erect a monument to the .Judge, more on account of his authorship of "Jack Cade" than anything else. Duiin^ his life time, Mr. Conrad, as an au thor, did not meet with the estimation he de served. If lie bud depended on authorship for ids maintenance, he would have starved, most probably; for life had loo much brains to be an acceptable coritiibulor to the flash newspapers and fisliion-plate magazines; and he had too much honor, I think, to make use of those piti ful tricks, by means of which many worthless writers of' this country acquire notoriety, (which they mistake for Tame,) and make them selves inaiketable among those traffickers in lit erature who estimate the worth of an author by the amount of his celebrity, even if he has made himself famous by sheep stealing, or some other bhjeciionuble practice. The author of "Jack Cade" was really an able and ingenious writer. Ilis dramatic produc tions generally "played well," to use a theatri cal phrase; and, besides, he wrote capital "Icad ei's" for the daily papers, which very few liter ary men can do." In fact, I would rather under take to "scare up" a score of: good play-weights, (though they are scarce enough, in all con science,) than halt a dozen adepts in the manu-, facture of lending editorials. Conrad was, at one time, principal editor of the North Ameri can, when it was published by George R. Gra ham, of Magazine celebrity. I have heard that Mr. Conrad was in very straitened circumstances for a long' lime, and tliat he was obliged, against his inclinations, to turn politician, merely for the purpose of earn ing a livelihood. Finally, he wosolected Mayor <if?the consolidated city, and received a very handsome salary for several years, which ena bled him to live comtortably during the re mainder of his life. ? Conrad, like most all authors, (especially dra matic ones,) hail some singularities, lie per formed some curious freaks before he died. On one .occasion he attempted to cowhide a big whiskered military officer?and once, while he was.Mnyor, he presented his naked bosom to a gang of rowdvish young men, who had threat ened to- shoot him for his rigid enf.H cement of the laws intended to prcsci ve good order in the city. It is said that this stage-like manoeuvre made a strong impression on the young rowdies, and moved them to apologise for their naughty conduct. A TEtiv peculiar set of fellows those "German students must be, according to a letter in the Ni y. Tribune, from Heidelburg, where seven' or eight hundred of them Jare congregated.? They fight duels by the quantity there, and! here's the way they fix for the fray : The combatants are,well protected from in jury, save their heads which are baro. Their right arm is woundwith cloth until it is" big as a man's thigh, and too heavy to hold : it is sup; ported, when not fighting, by the seconds.? The neck is also .wound with cloth to the adrfi to protect the jugulars. Xfe swords are about four feet lung, three fourtlfs of an inch -wido, blunt pointed, with a rough edge, being regular lencing swords. If all is ready tliey begin, and endeavor to cut each other only on the lita'd or face. If the swords are bent or broken, the parties are stopped by the seconds who exam ine the wounds, sew them up if necessary, straighten the swords, and the fighting recom mences. For fifteen minutes this continues, unless one of tha. parties giyes out, .or< ihuy de-. dare their revenge satisfied. Now and then an ear or a nose is cut off, and always more or less slashes are given across the scalp, forehead or face. These marks are regarded as honorable distinctions, giving evidence of bravery on the part of the beirer. That morning I saw no less than eight duels. At 104 all was finished, ihe cut heads bound up, the parties satisfied, sufficient lager beer drank, when all returned to Heidelburg. The police knew full well when they saw so many students what hud occurred, but, as a German woman said to me, they '.'put their'hands before their eyes when the students go over the river." Seven hundred students could overpower the police in case they were inclined, and hence the dueling i< allowed, as many disgusting things are elsewhere. Cer tainly I haye never seen fighting more iitdica live of cowardice (if endeavors to prevent being hurt would iudii ate it) than in this manner of ?Inrlinir with kclibnj*r? or swords. A. M.

The bnsincs* of manufacturiug spurious gins, and offer ing them as beverages, imdcr the titles, " Aromatic,"?"
