To the readers of The Herald we bow our presence, and hand them the first issue of 1890, and of the last decade of the nineteenth century. Ten years trom the date of this number of The Herald, ac cording to the laws of nature, a little more than two-thirds of the present population will witness the com mencement of the twentieth centu ry. By this measurement the age of the world and the christian era are reckoned, and at the close of each a general summing up of events occupy the attention of historians of all civilization. From the account historians give of the developments of the times of which they write, we learn the extent of progress made during the last century, and the causes that lead to great events, and the marked changes in each of these long periods of time, that measure all the past back to the dawn of history, and record the names of those who were not born to die, and contemplate the com parative few of earth's inhabitants that are able to leave behind them foot prints upon the sands of time that will be seen and felt by coming generations. We naturally feel a degree of humility that humbles pride and tends to weaken aspi rations. Yet, when we reflect that the theatre upon which we are playing our roll is so circumscribed, and of such short duration, we can only wonder that there is room for mention of so many names made famous in the world's great drama, as appears upon the pages of histo ry, but our pride prompt us to make great efforts to accomplish something, that may possibly be handed down to those who come after us, that will associate our names and memories with more important events, that make histo ry interesting and beneficial to the present and coming generations. If we have such aspirations, we should spare neither time nor labor in preparing ourselves for the effort, and the commencement of a new year is propitious for this work. Let us try to reach a higher plane of intelligence, and a more earnest consecration of our lives to the ac complishment of a greater good to those with whom we live. We all have duties to perform during the present year, and the question comes up, are we able to meet the demands upon us? We hope to see the present year one of grand improvements and progress in human affairs, not only in this great commonwealth of ours but all over the earth. May peace reign among the nations, and all the battle blades be changed to pruning hooks, and men learn war no more. May all the readers of this number of The Herald be here to read the announcement of many more new years, accompanied all along through the years by a higher de gree of prosperity and happiness than has fallen to their lots in the past. The Hamilton-Burr Duel. New York Independent: Fitz Green Washington, a great-great grandnephew of George Washing ton, has recently described the Hamilton-Burr duel as was seen by his grandfather, Capt. Fitz Hughes, in the following words: "When Capt. Hughes discovered that his friends had gone to fight he took a boat and a couple of slaves both of them good oarsmen and rowed as fast as possible to the battle eround. He got there in time to see the fight occur as follows but not in time to stop it, as was his hope: Hamilton and Burr were to fire twice or thrice at each other. At the word of command for the fire Hamilton fired at Burr and Burr fired into air. Hamilton, of course, missing uurr, out at tne second firing Hamilton fired in the air andBurrshotHamilton. Hamil ton thought Burr meant to kill him as he ment to kill Burr; therefore, Hamilton at the first firing aimed to shoot Burr. Burr, deeming that Hamilton would, of course, at the next shot endeavor again to shoot him, of course changed his tactics and shot Hamilton. Hamilton, wishing not to be outdone by Burr, and presuming that Burr would again make no effort to shoot him, fired his pistol off in the air. This is the true history of the duel fought by these two great men. AtWetumka, Alabama, on the evening of the 27th of December, while dancing a Miss Marie Bates slipped and fell, her head striking the floor with tremendous force.

The altitude of the Stevens mine on Mt. McClellan (Cal.) is 2500 feet. At the depth of from 66 to 200 feet the crevice matter, con sisting of silica, calcite and ore, together with the surrounding wall rock, is a solid frozen mass, says an exchange. McClellan is one of the highest eastern spurs of the snowy range ; it has the form of a horses- shoe, with a bold escarpment of feldsparic rock nearly 2000 feet high, which, in some places, is nearly perpendicular. In descending into the mine nothing unusual occurs, until a depth of 80 or 90 feet is reached, when the frozen territory begins and continues for over 2000 feet. There are no indications of a thaw summer or winter. The whole of the 2000 feet of frozen walls is surrounded by mas sive rocks. The miners, being un able to excavate the frozen materi al with pick and drill in the usual way, found that the only way to mine in this peculiar lode was to kindle a huge fire against the ' 'face" of the tunnel, and in the morning take out the ore that had thawed loose during the night. In fact, this was the only mode of mining used while going through the frozen belt some ten or fifteen years since, ine tunnel is now many hundred feet deep, and still there is no diminution of the frost. There is, so far as can be seen, no opening or channel through which the frost could possibly have reach ed such a depth from the surface. Besides this there are many other mines in the same vicinity in s like frozen state. The theory is that the rock was deposited in glacial times when there was cold .enough to freeze the very earth's heart. In that case, the mine is Sn icehouse, whose stores have remained unthawed for at least 80,000 years. The phenomenon is not uncom mon or inexplicable when openings can be found through which a cur rent of air can pass; but cases which, like the Stevens mine, show no opening for air currents, must be referred to imbedded icebergs of the glacial period. Sitting Bull Mad. HE WANTED TO VISIT THE GREAT EATHER, BUT WAS LEFT OUT. Chicago, Dec. 28. A dispatch from Bismarck, N. Dak., says: Sitting Bull, the notorious Sioux chief, is very much incensed that he was not taken to Washington with the delegation of Sioux chiefs who recently had a consultation with President Harrison regarding their lands. Bull now fully realizes that he is unpopular with Agent McLaughlin and all in authority, and he is vehement in his de nunciation of the agent and the more popular chiefs. It is a par ticularly bitter pill for him to have John Grass and Gall, his two great est enemies, recognized as leaders while he is ignored. He says that Grass and Gall have been traitors to the Indians, and they sold out their people in the conference which resulted in the ceding of their land, which will be soon open to settle ment. In an interview since the departure of the Indian delegation for the East ho said: "I have al ways been a friend to my people, f have not been like Grass and Gall who sold them out. I am no good with white men, but the time will come when the Indians will realize that I am right." The last straw that broke the back of what little consideration Agent McLaughlin had for Bull was his attempt to stampede Indians away from the conference just as they were about to sign the treaty. Since then the agent has been disciplining him with good effect. Bull can no longer influence the Indians for evil, and it is the peace and harmony on the reservation that worries him. Th Congressmen from this State have been placed upon different committee a follow: Hooker, on foreign affairs; Stockdale on public land, also on levees and improve ments of the Mississippi river; Morgan, on agriculture; Allen on Indian depredations; Catchings on river and harbor, also on labor; Anderson on postoflices and rail roads; Lewis, on invalid pensions, and also on alcoholic liquor traffic, and on publio buildings and grounds.

It had been given to him years ago by his grandfather. The glass was shivered to atoms and an old yellow piece of parchment was disclosed to view for the first time in a century and more, as was proved by the nature of the document. For seventy-five years Mr. Roll and his relatives have been endeavoring to gain additional evidence with which they could lay claim to a wide stretch of land in the Mohawk Valley, along the banks of the Mohawk river. Mr. Roll knew perfectly well that his Holland Dutch ancestor, Jacob Roll, had owned a large tract of land there which had been abandoned during the French and Indian wars, but he never found any papers by which he could fix the position of the land. The document which dropped from the mirror back four weeks ago, was an important miss ing proof that the heirs of Jacob Roll, of whom there are 150, have been seeking. Having found it, they will press their claim to property near Shenectady, N. Y., valued at $6,000,000. The piece of folded parchment was a deed from the Indians to Jacob Roll, giving Roll a clear title to a tract of land four miles in length along the Mohawk river, beginning in the City of Shenectady and running back from the river nine miles. The whole town of Amsterdam is believed to be included in the In dian deed, as are also valuable properties of the NewYork Central Railroad. An Indian title or deed of land is almost impossible to set aside in NewYork State. The validity of this deed is declared to be un questionable, as C. W. Manning, of Cincinnati, O., was in Albany, N. Y., on Saturday and found the deed recorded in the old Dutch records in the year 1683. Mr. Manning went to Elizabeth on Saturday night as soon as he proved the genuineness of the title, and there joined a committee com prising representatives of over 100 heirs. Charles W. Roll, of Newark, N. J., was chairman of the com mittee. The other representatives present were C. W. Manning, Cin cinnati, O.; G. R. Mitchell, Newark: R. Franz, Newark; Walter Roll, Linden, N. J.; W. M. Roll, Cincin nati, andMauriceStatemeyer, Eliza beth, N.J. These men subscribed a sum of money with which to push the claims of the heirs, and assess ed each of the heirs a certain sum as a reserve fund to draw upon. The heirs are scattered in all parts of the United States, but each lineal descendant of Jacob Roll was present at Elizabeth on Saturday night. Prize Corn Crop. Last spring the American Agri culturist, of New York, announced that they would give $500 in gold for the largest yield of corn; and a similar prize for the best acre of potatoes, wheat and oats. Other special prizes were offered, the whole amounting to nearly $10,000 in value. The following is from their repre sentative at Blenheim, S. C, and was written on the 10th of No vember: Among those in this vicinity, who have tried for the $500 offered for the best acre of corn, is Mr. Z. J. Drake, of Drake's, who harvested his crop on Monday of this week. In accordance with official in structions from the editor of the American Agriculturist, the under signed acted as its representative at the harvest. A large number of farmers were present, and there was considerable excitement as the crop was weighed, which was done on the grounds by the committee. The acre being carefully measured by our surveyor, Mr.W. B. Alford, whose sworn certificate accompanies the report which Mr. Drake will send to the Agriculturist. The corn was carefully weighed on tasted scales and, every effort was apparently put forth to have the harveiing honestly done, and resulting in two hundred and fifty four bushel and forty-nine pounds. I am not at liberty to give a full account of the system of cultivation and fertilization employed to pro duce the above results. These facts are embodied in great detail in Mr. Drake's report, which will be duly published in the American Agriculturist. I will, however o state that the orop was grown on sandy soil. There were three murders in were three murders Memphis on Christmas day. Farmers' Alliance. The National Farmers' Alliance, o. T orlnriforl It in session in a. uuu, ur.v. resolution favoring the reservation of public land for actual settlers and administrations in lands in States and Territories by aliens; for the reinforcement of the law against railroad corporations that were not complying with their con tracts as to the disposition of lands; called for tbe 'free coinage of gold and silver, and an amendment to the law which permitted loans to banks on bonded security of money at 1 per cent, while the farmer was obliged to pay 8 and 10 per cent.; favoring the payment of the public debt as rapidly as possible; oppos ing bonds as the basis for loans, and reiterated the argument against the national banking system and in favor of the greenback doctrine; taxes on real estate, mortgages and graded income tax were demanded; economic management of all de partments of the government was called for, and a special declaration was launched against any propo sition looking to the increase of government employes' salaries. The liquor traffic was opposed in all its forms. The Hennepin canal project was indorsed, as was also that of a deep harbor on the gulf coast. Another resolution was pass ed recommending Congress to take some action to compel the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railroads to pay their debts, and objecting to any further extra cession of time The Australian system of voting was enthusiastically indorsed. The resolution on the tariff was as follows: Resolved, That we favor such re vision and reduction of the tariff that the taxes may rest as lightly as possible upon productive labor, and that its burdens may be im posed upon the luxuries and re moved from the necessaries of life, and in a manner which will prevent continued accumulation of theUnit ed States Treasury surplus. One of Mr. Davis' Namesakes. Philadelphia Inquirer: "I once lived in Wisconsin," said a Phila delphian yesterday. ''I was a clerk on an Indian agency there, and it was part of my work to make out the pay rolls. Shortly after taking the position I was astonished one day at seeing the name of Jefferson Davis on the pay roll. I thought it odd, and when pay day came around I watched for him. He was a robust fellow, about fifty years old, and his name was his sole knowledge of the English language. I aeked the Interpreter what it meant, and he said that whenjefl'er son Davis, who has just died, was a lieutenant in the regular army he was stationed at Fort Howard, which was then the headquarters of the Green Bay Indian Agency, which was in charge of an army officer. Lieut. Davis came to know the Indians quite well, and on one occasion he did a good turn for one of the braves, which so delighted him that he named his infant son Jefferson Davis, to the creat disgust of his squaw and his pagan friends, who thought it a disgrace that an Indian should violate the traditions of his tribe to such an extent. But he had his way and his name is still on the payrolls of the Meno minee Tribe of the Green Bay Agency. And, by the way, this tribe of Indians sent a company of troops to the war. They had been mustered in but two weeks when they were ordered to the front. They arrived before Petersburg just two days before the mine was sprung. They were in the van that made the assault. They rushed forward into the crater far beyond the lines and were cut to pieces be fore they could be driven back. Nearly one-half were killed or wounded. Jefferson Davis' name sake was not in this company." Attleboro, Mass, December 23. Rev. Chas. Pinney recently came from East Saginaw, Mich., and was placed in charge of the Second Ad vent Society here. About two weeks ago his nine year old daughter was taken sick with typhoid fever, but the father was an ardent believer in the faith cure doctrine, and did not call a physician or notily the board of health. The neighbors brought the case to the attention i f the board Saturday night. A phy sician was ordeied to visit the child, but the father refused to al low him to prescribe, saying that he was ready to leave the whole matter in the hands of the Lord. The Massachusetts society, for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children has been notified, and will doubt less take prompt measures. NEW ADVERTISEMENTS.
