SATUKDAY MAV B, 1883, Hotter, the Beast, has liberally disinfected the moral atmosphere of Massachusetts. "Eu Pkrkins" had better suspend his "Greek jokes." That tort of thing is better done In Texas. Nrw York City has just passed through the time-honored ordeal, now near or quite a century old, of annual house hunting, and moving on the 1st of May. The Stite of Ohio is becoming lively with the bustle and slir of approaching battle. More thin ever there is no telling who will be Governor till after the election. The United States Government is popu lating Lake Michigan with young white fish. There are to be 8,000,000 brought to it during the season. The New York city police have bagged an entire gang of counterfeiters who had the hardihood to counterfeit the Government's 92 cent silver dollar. It is bad enough to have the genuine on our hands, but to send out a conterfcit is a combination of temerity and audacity altogether unheard of. The authors of such an exploit should have the full benefit of the law. l'KISON A HUSKS. We are shown the fearful working of the State prison contract system in New York in a brief pamphlet written by an educated ex convict, giving an account of what he saw and knew while expiating his offense under a three years' sentence in the prison at Auburn. He makes no complaint on his personal account, is modest and moderate in his dealings with those whose atrocities he makes known, and seems altogether a qualified and creditable witness. It is idle and wasteful to spend time and labor in reproaches and criminations of the venal and guilty because it is only a new ex hibit of the old frailties that belong to natute and society with which all are sufficiently familiar already. The fault is in the system . Reform lies in expunging methods. Under the prison contract system 'any State or nation will grow abuses and differ only in the degrees of turpitude involved. It is to be hoped the time is at hand when the sordid rapacity of men that finds victims in every condition of life will yet in all the Ftates be kept out of our prisons, that the penalties of crime which are suffered most by those who are not the criminals, by wiv sisters, mothers, children, wdl not be longer augmented by this flagrant abuse. Until a wider and more comprehensive reform swal' lows up equally our present methods and mo lives in dealing with crime and criminals, and gives us prison homes founded on the principles and faith of the good Samaritan, let us at least preserve the integrity of the system we have, although not 19 founded. A ItOYAI, 15XPI.ANATION. It may not have been generally noticed that Her Majesty Queen Victoria's royal cousin, King Cetewayo, of Zululand, has sent no message of condolence or congratulation to Her Majesty on account of the late ncci dent to Her Majesty's royal knee. It is no wonder on account of His Majesty's engross ing duties in the canvass now pending for his royal office, there being a chief totally un known to the European royal families, named Usiliefs, running in opposition to His Majesty. The canvass is conducted with more than American zeal and with something like the severity of His Majesty's campaign in Ireland, or that of the royal Alexander III. among the sanguinary Nihilists of Russia ; for it Is said the casualties among the Zululanders are, already, greatly in excess of the mortal ity In the late little unpleasantness with Hrr Urilish Majesty in which His Royal High nets, the candidate for sovereign in France under the title of Napoleon IV., lost his life. It is discovered that they do not cuttivate the sublime art of stulfisg ballot boxes in Zulu land, but the obnoxious voter, that is to say, the voter who does not vote the right ticket, is put out of the way somewhat in the American style in the thrilling days of Know Nothing prevalence, and hence finally relieved from further anxiety about the success of his party. The life and success of Hl Msjesty Cetewayo therefore depends upon the pattizans of His Majesty exercising greater diligence than these of Usiliefs, as when the issue is dc termined only the one candidate and one party wilt survive. It is thus seen that His Majesty Cetewayo incurs a risk which is th full equivalent of the European hazard, now so prevalent, of losing his crown and with it his royal life, and the consequence is that the sprained royal knee of Her Majesty the Queen of England and Ireland, has esciped his royal attention. Hut doubtless if His Majesty should evade the worse than Nihilists ofZululand and save his crown, and with it his royal life, he will make the amende royal, and in future give proper attention during convalescence to the royal Urilish knee. It docs seem that royalty is the same every where. Norwegian lletlirothal As soon as a young man and young woman are engaged in Norway, no matter in what rank of life, betrothal rings are exchanged. These rings are worn ever afterwards by the men as well as by the women. The conse quence is that one can always tell a married man, or at least an engaged man, in Norway in the same way as one can tell a married woman in England when she shows her hand. Gold rings are used by the rich, but silver, either solid or in filigree, by the poor. There is no married man in Norway, no matter how humble he may be, who does not bear this outward mark of his submission to the malri monial bond. But this is not all. As soon as a man is engaged, he has calling cards printed, with the name of his fiancee immedi ately below his own. Htiltiu'H Lovuof Flowers. Of the many touching tributes paid to flow ers there is one associated with the closing hours of Henry Heine, the poet, which ap pears to be very beautiful. He was dying in 'aris. 1 he doctor was standine by Ins bed side, when Heine pressed his hand and said, Doctor, you are my menu I ask a last fa vor. Tell me the truth. The end is fast ap proaching is it not?" The doctor was silent. '1 hank you," said Heine, calmly, "Have you any request to make?" asked the doctor, muchmoved. "Yes," replied the poet. "My wife sleeps do no t disturb her. Take from the table the fragrant fbwers 'she brought me this morning I love flowers so dearly. Thanks I'loce them on my breast ' He paused as he inhaled their perfume. His eyes closed, and le murmured, "flowers now beautllul is nature." These were his last words as his spirit took its flight to eternity. Special to Ladle. Tho ladles aro requested to bear in niiiid thut .1.
