The Picayune of Saturday, last, ala.,'pens ap, on the Times-Dem ocrat's Washi ngton correspondent. lie will be famous, shortly. It is said that cholera genrms show a decided affinity for humana liip. If a germ ever g tis on aiy of the young folks lips, look out for the spread of cholera. The mechanics and laborers in 4 -the Q(ueen & Crescent shops at Meridian, Miss., went on a strike MUonday, for back pay, for two 4 months and twenty-three days. Charleston, S.

RI. 1i., by which all the cotton l, handled byv the' formr i. ito t , tran.-ferrt. d to the latter road for et w sl.ipm,.tlt to New Orl.;un-, has ScauIsed ceon-ideralle c(ulla(nellt. thalt t is, ini teadl f -hilpplinig the cotton i by ,,boat fr'., IDelta it is taken w across the river and sent by the, rT V'aller road, to New Orleans. T '1'his arrangement, it is suplposed, will seriously cripple, if not break tt up, the New Orleans & Vickshurg 0 packet line. This result, wouldbe te a misfortune. for if the steamboat b opposition were removed, the rail- d roads would have it all their own Sway, and in such an event, the tl freight rates would be, naturally, it increased. Railroads, are neither better nor worse, than any other corporation. I With no opposition, the temptation iI to Itake the most of the situation, f( would be irresistable, and freight c charges would increase. The op- r position of thes steambloats has been cr insufficient, to hold down prices. Local freights are entirely too high, and without the steamboat oppo sition, there would be a bad state , of affairs.. The boats are not the best dis pensers of justice in the world. They, also, when the opportunity presents itself, are, in nowise hash- h ful about elevating prices and they have one trick that should lie Sabandoned. They claim not to be responsible for breakage, and leak 1 age. and it is a far from uncommon thing, for shippers to find packages i .,f things eatable broken open andl some of the contents abstracted.! , Canned beef is peculiarly liable to such mishalps. Canned fruits, are c frequently short in their accounts, even baking powder, has been known to be corrupted by evil as sociations, and has turned out to . e be a defaulter. The list is a long.n one, but enough has been said to I show the demoralizing influence of : steamboats. a And there is no remedy, for this 1 n evil, of leakage. It may seem a little queer for cases of canned goods to spring such a serious leak , as will permit a can of peaches or a box of sardines, to leak out, but - it is a fact, that such things have happened. It has been attempted I to apply the evolution theory to this subject, but it won't work. t n That a can of oysters should dis appear and a can of lobsters, bhe found in its place might do, an oyster might evolute into a lobster, a can of plums might also be evolv ed from a can of whortleberries, but where there is a vacancy, left to represent a can of goods, evolu c, tion is thin. This is all wrong, the boats should be made respon sible for such legerdemain, and if 1 they were, tile chances arc numer ous that, the game would become unpopular. I ORAOAIA LEVEE. A convention comnposed of dele o gates from the parishes affected by 1 Morganza, met in Baton Rouge 4 this week. It was found that only d$40.000 was availalle for tihe en s- tire district. The building of the I it levee was estimated to cost $70.000(X) ig The convention called on the par- I ishes interested to contribute $25, k000 towards the work. If this call i r- is responded to and the railroads act liberally in the matter, the the levee can be built. It is to be hoped it will be done. -- T--- mLa wrITaISK ntLL.s A DOG. t. Mr. Whitmarsh has been very much annoyed by dogs lately, or rather a dog. This dog the prop erty of a neighbor, was not an or Sdinary looking dog, being of a sort of brindle salmon color, and pos Ssessed of one buttenrmilk looking eye, while the other was a decided in dark green. Neither was hlie an at ordinary acting dog. for in addition ke to the common trick of sucking ro eggs, he seriously interfered with Mr. Whitnarsh's dinner on several oceassions; one time, having eaten ' up all the butter on hand, another il time. carrying off a fine roast, Mr. CR Whitmars~h had imlported from ty Vicksburg, and on still another occasion, causing the disappearance v.of a choice lot of b!ane mange, r which had been wprepared for the Ibenefit of some friends of Mr. n Whitmarah who dined with himn is that day. hi It was this last straw that broke Sthe camels back, and Mr. Whit d marsh concluded to kill the dog. lie therefore loaded up a shot gun with a full dose of buckslho', c and also loaded an old army mau ket with a ball cartridge. Forget ting that he had loaded the musket he put another cartridge in it. The dlog was off visiting t!hat daly and (lill not put in :in appearance. It1! along albout eight o'clock in the evening he came tlhr ,ugh the fei'.e where a picket was off, and bezl, nn looking around for soniiFthing to I eat. Mr. Whitmnarsh who was on the look out for him, slipped out to the y| fence anl stopped up the placei where the dog had come in, and returned to the house unseen. Taking up the shot guln, he took aimil at the dog, and lired. The do,, g tumbled over howling, u, t lie sooii got on his feet again, and male for the hole in the fence. As he ran, Mr. Whitmarsh left fly the other I barrel of the gun, but mziissed the T Sldog Catching up the musket he waited for the dog to stop, and then blazed away. He hit the dog, but !he did not know it, for lie went spinning off the end of the gallery, near which he was standing when lhe fired, falling into a winterhouse for flowers, which happened to be convenient, while the musket went revolving through the dinning room window, and knocked a water cooler oil of a stand, breaking the : faucet offl; and plilling all the ice at water, (Mr. Whitniarsh made a ' present of the cooler, to the TIMES w office next day.) g' The dog while badly hurt, was " not killed, as Mr. Whitmarsh per- ti ceived when lie climed out of the d flowerhouse, and having made up t his mind to kill the dog. Mr. Whit- n marsh seized an axe from the wood d pile, and running up to the dog, t. struck at him with'it, but, the dog 01 dodged, and the handle of the. axe IV striking a log lying there, broke off ti in the centre. Then Mr. Whit- ft lmarsh got a club, and proceeded to II beat the dog to death, which he 1i succeeded in doing, assisted by the g cook with a hatchet, and reinforced S1 by the hired man with *an ,iron 1 poker. a Mr. Whitmarsh killed the dog n he also bought a new window, he d has no water cooler,. it will take U half a days work to repair the e flower house, and he has an old hl army musket that lie is anxious to t give away. I The Age of the Mounds. r Dr. Cyrus Thomas, who is in " t charge of the division on mound exploration of the Bureau of Eth- i nology, has in the last three years t Sobtained about 15,(100 specimens of, C the handiwork of the mound build- - ers, the study of which, with tile i e survey of the mounds themnlselves and their surroundings, is gradual-1 ly leading to a solution of certain arebleologic riddles which a few years ago seemed insolvable. 1 While some of the mounds are doubtless very ancient, others similar in character and equally interesting have certainly been ý built up since the advent of Eu- t ropeans. A string of sleigh bells · much corroded but still capable of I tinkling, was found among the flint and bone implements in a mound in Tennessee, while in Mississippi, at the point where i)e Soto is sup , posed to have tarried, a SpanishI e coat of arms in silver, one blade of y a pair of scissors and other articles .of Europaan manufacture were e found in lpositions which indicated that they were bunriod by the origi Snal builders of the mounds. In a Georgia mound two copper 1 plates were fjund, upon which s were stamped figures resembling e the sculptures upon the Central e American ruins. The workman. ship is vastly superior to that dis played on the articles of pottery, Sstone and hone found in the y mounds, and their origid and pur r pose are not yet explainable. '- Aside from these plates nothing - has been found to indicate a con-' t nection between the mound build - ers and the Aztecs or the Pueblos, g while on the other hand, there ap-i d pears many reasons for not going n beyond the Cherokees and their n fellow red men of the Ohio and g Mississippi valley to find the origin Ii of these curious erections. SThe purpose of the mounds still n remains in some cases a mystery, r but in others they are known to r. have been made sometimes for bhurial places, and sometimes as r foundations for Indian villages :e secure from the floods to which the e, low lands were periodically sub.! e jected.-Norristown Herald.

A consultation was held yester day between lHealth Oflicer Veale alid l)r. lHenry Lefi'nan, and the views of Chlemist Charles Bullock were considered at length. Both gentlemen expressed great indig nation at the rumor that the inves tigation on the adulteration of drugs was the outcome for a sensa tion and a desire on their part for newspaper notoriety. Major Veale declared that it made no difference to him what Mr. Bullock or any one else said, for he felt that hip was in the right. Had the drug for this investigation would never have arisen. "The trouble is lust herc," he said ; "hundreds of drug gists make their drugs under the standard of 1870 instead of tliat of 1880, as they should. This makes a vast difference, for many of the most important drugs are a great deal weaker under the old standard than under the new, hence the cost of their production is much less. Now I don't propose to let the drug trade impose on the pub lic if I can help it. The Pharma coprei, of 188 is the standard which they all should adopt and mn object is to compel them to do so. It is my opinion that a drug gist who comlpounds a prescription undc r any other than the standard of 1884) is liable to criminal prose cution. The sole object of our investigation is to compel the drug trade to live up to the stand ard of 1SSO." Dl)r. Leffman said: "We are doing this work simply because the drug trade has failed in its duty to the public. If the Pharmaceut ical Association would pass a resolution in conjunction with the drug trade, agreeing to live up to _ the standard as laid down in the Pharmacopmia, it would cover the whole ground. The variations we have found in the strength of drugs examined is due to the fact that no single standard is followed. A very few recognize that of 1880-the only correct one-but the majority fol low that of 1870." The latest re sults of the analysis made by Drs. Leffinan and Cresson show rather startling results. The eleven sam m ples of laudanum anal yized vary in Sstrength from 5.56 per cent of morphia to 40 per cent. The sam- ( ples of chlorated soda were found exceedingly weak and far below the stqndard, some being as low as 1.8 per cent, while the minimum quantity demanded by the stand ard is 10 per cent. Out of thirteen samples of mercurial ointment only e Ave were found anywhere near the required standard- Many of the itwenty-seven samples of tincture 1 of iodine were found to contain - only one-.qnarter of the required strength. The examination of milk showed it great variation in tthe quality sold, but many of the g samples were found to be very good. # okm_ beeo b t or u 11 -~ e*o.I or otrw..
