Rather an unique - station-house item is thus reported by the Jersey City Journal: Last night a neatly attired young lady stood up at the Sergeant's desk in Oakland avenue station, and asked for lodging. Tbe Sergeant pnt np his pen, pushed back the ledger, hang his cap on the other peg, took np his pen, dropped it on the floor, went to the telegraph box, wound np the clock, told Uncle Ben to put on some wood and stop the fire, and as if remembering some thing, looked at the young lady and said: "You wish?" "Lodging, if you please, sir." "Oh, yes, excuse me." Then the Sergeant put the. usual questions of nativity, age, married or single, read or write, place of birth, trade it was all printed and he 'must fill the blanks and the neatest and best cell the tombs could afford was nervously placed at the pretty visitor's disposal Nothing further was neara trom tne tree lodger until just at daybreak the next morning, when her fair face appeared again at the Sergeant's desk. 1 "Can I see my husband now, please?" she -said. ; "Certainly, madam," was the po lite reply, and for three minutes the spooKisn suence oi tne eany morn was unbroken. . "Well, won't you please call him up for me?" she said, trying to bore a hole through the floor with the Leel of ber right foot, ne came in lust after I did last night," Oh, your husband Is here also, is he? What is his name?" ; "I've forgotten what name he told me he would give. It wasn't his right name; but he is here." And the Sergeant went to the door of the men lodge and called out for the husband of the young wife. The seventeen lodgers raised up on their elbows as one man, but neither came to claim tne lady. "Guess he isn't . here," said the Sergeant, returning to the omce. The girl insisted that he was, and would not be satisfied until tbe sev enteen tired travelers were made to come out and stand in a row for her inspection. . She ran her glances down the line and began to cry. Pauses here and there in the flood of tears, gradually let out fb wJl8 secret, She had been married at noon the day before, a New York justice receiving the combined wealth of the pair for his official service, and tne young bride and groom bad Btarted on their wed ding tour on foot. In Rah way they had some well-to-do friends, ' who would make them welcome, but the journey was too long a ' one for a night, and he pairjiad conoluded to stop over, unuer assumea names, in some police station. Oakland Tombs was the one selected. The PD8 p4 th story hadj thus far progressed whep the'street door hurriedly opened, and 8 young man, who had declined the lodgers' ac commodations when Bhown him the evening before, hurriedly entered and said: "1 was lust outside wait' ing." The young bride stopped cry ing, both politely thanked tbe Ser geant, and with faces wreathed in smiles the happy pair walked lightly away. Frog Soup. Mr. Breck's father was a rich mer chant in Boston, who was agent for the French government, and brought into close connection thus with the French officers attaohed to the squadron which for a time was an chored in Boston Harbor. His house was the resort of the foreigners, who were looked upon with unbounded curiosity -by the Boston people, brought for the first time into ac quaintance with a nation uniformly traduced by the British, It wag in- creaiDie to mem mat persons wno were popularly supposed to subsist mainly on frogs should be so plump ana weii-iavoreu; Dut the original facts were stoutly maintained and supported by the rumor that they had been discovered hunting for their favorite food in the Frog Pond on tne common. I "With this last notion in his head. Mr. Nathaniel Tracy, who lived in a beautitui vuja at Cambridge, for merly Washington's head-quarters, and now -Mr. Longfellow's house, made a great feast for the admiral and his officers. Every thing was furnished that could be had in the country to ornament and give varie ty to the entertainment. Jly father was one of the guests, and told me often after that two large tureens ot soup were placed at the ends of the table. The admiral sat on the right of Tracy, and Mt Pe t'Etombe on the left L'Etombe was Consul of France, resident at Boston, Tracy filled a plate of soup, whioh went to tbe admiral, and the next was hand ed to tbe consul. As soon as L'Etombe put his spoon into the plate, he fished up a large frog, lust as green and perfect as if he had hopped from the pond into the tu reen. Not knowing at first what it was. he seized it by one of its hind- legs, and holding it up in view of , , J tne wnoje company, discovered mat it was a full-grown frog. As soon as he had thoroughly inspeoted it, and made himself sure of the matter, he exclaimed. 'Ah! mon Dieu! une grenouillel' Thsu turning to the gentleman next to him. gave him the frog, Ha received it and passed it round the table. Thus the Door erapaud made the tour from hand to hand until it reached the admiral. The company, convulsed with laugh ter, examined the soup plates as the servants brought them, and in each was to be found a irog, I he uproar was universal. Meantime Traov kept his ladle going, wondering what his outlandikh quests meant bv such extravagant merriment. 'What's the matter?' asked he; and raising his head, discovered the f mgs dangling by a leg in all directions, Why don't tbey eat them?' be ex claimed. 'If thev knew the con founded trouble I had to catch them. in order to treat them to a dish of their own eountry, they would find that with me, at least, it was no jok ing matter.'" From "An Old Gen tleman's Recollections,1' by Horace E. Sccotkb, in Harper's Magazine for May. Anecdote ot President Lincoln. The following original and char acteristic anecdote of rresident L,m coin comes to us from a Western corresnondent: I am reminded very forcibly of an interview which I once had with the martyT President by reading in the .Editor s Drawer ot vour Aiagazine what one of your correspondents re lates in regard to a similar interview, I called upon Mr. Lincoln soon after he was hrst installed in the V bite House. In the room where Mr. Lincoln granted interviews, etc., were several persons who were wait ing their turn to speak with him. i listened to the requests of several men and women, and I saw that very few were granted what they solicited.- I had a seat at the other end. - Soon after I was seated, in walked several officers ib the Span ish navy to pay their compliments to Mr. Lincoln. By some means they were d rected toward my end of the table, and I saw tbey took me for the President. Mr. Lincoln saw the same thing, and hastily signaled me to "go ahead," as he expressed it, and receive them. . I rose, shook hands with each officer, and ex changed a few words with them, which would have been, 1 suppose, appropriate, had 1 indeed been rres ident. The moment their backs were turned I looked toward Mr. Lincoln. He was shaking with laughter. I thought now I had paved the way to win the position I had come to ask. I made up my mind to address the rresident in new way, and thus add to the hold I already bad upon mm. so, when my time came, I stepped up to Mr. Lincoln and said, : "Sir, I have seen the annoyance to which you are subjected by so many and often-repeated requests for in numerable positions, etc. Now if vou will Detroit me to shake hands. I will try and smother my desire for a certain position which 1 bad come to ask from you., . Mr. Lincoln jumped up, and grasp ing my hand, said, "Sir,"you are one man in a thou sand. I am doublir indebted to you. You have been the means' of conveyT ing to those Spanish officers that the President of the United States is a very handsome man, and then you do not even ask an office.' But," he added, "hurry home. You may re pent." It is sufficient to add that I hur ried. Editor's Drawer, in Harper's Magazine for May. " A Slight Mistake. f The present Archbishop of Dub lin, tbe gifted author of the work, so widely known, on the Study of YVQWI&, Is pot in very robust neaitn, and has been for many years appre hensive of paralysis. At a recent dinner in Dublin, given by the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, his Grace sat on the right of his hostess, the Du chess of Abercorn. In the midst of the dinner the company was startled by seeing the archbishop rise irom his seat, and still more startled to bear htm exclaim, in a dismal and sepulchral tone, "It has cornel it has come!" "What has come, your Grace?" eagerly cned. half a dozen voices from different parts of the table. "What I have been expecting for twenty years, solemnly answered the archbishop fa stroke of paraly sis. I have been pinching myself for the last twenty minutes, and find myself entirely without sensation." "Jr ardon me, my dear arch bish: op,'' said the duchess, looking np to him with a somewhat quizzical smile "pardon me for contradicting you, but it is I that you have been pincn- ing.n Editor's Drawer, in Harper's Magazine for May, Wouldn't be Pleased. Some time ago tljere lived in Ed inburgh a well-known grumbler named Sandy Black, whose often-re curring tits of spleen or indigestion produced some amusing scenes of senseless irritability which were highly relished by all except the brute's good, patient little wife. Une morning sandy rose, bent on a quarrel. The baddies and eggs were excellent, done to a turn, and bad been ordered by himself the previ ous evening, and breakfast passed without the looked-for compliment. "What -will you have for dinner, Sandy?" said Mrs. Black. "A chicken, madam," said the husband. . HRoas'ted or boiled?" "Confound it, madam, if you had been a good and considerate wife you would pave known before this what 1 liked, sandy growled out, and slamming the door behind him left the house. It was in the spring and a friend who was present heard the little wife say: : "sandy's bent on a disturbance to day; I shall not please him, do what i can, The dinner time oame and Sandy and his friend sat down to dinner. The fish were eaten in silence, and, on raising the cover of the dish be fore him, in a towering passion he cried out: "Boiled chicken! I hate it, mad am. A chicken boiled is a chicken spoiled." Immediately the cover was raised for. another chicken roasted to a turn. "Madam, I won't eat roast chick en, roared Sandy; "you know how it should have been cooked I" At that instant a broiled chicken, with mushrooms, was plaoed on the tsble. "Without green peas?" roared the grumbler. "tlere they are, my dear." said Mrs. Black. "How dare you spend my money in that way?" - 'They were a present," said the wife, interrupting him. Rising from his chair and rushing from the room, amid a roar of laugh ter from his friend, be clinched his fist and shouted: t"How dare you receive a present without leave?" Washington Reporter.

Opium comes principally from Turkey, and the war with Russia, if it should be protracted, will materially interfere with the world's supply. Agriculturists have begun the culture of the opium poppy in New York sad California, and have netted twenty or thirty pounds to the acre, worth seven to eight dollars per pound. It re quires no more cultivation than any garden crop, and a boy can cultivate half an acre easily. Besides tbe opium, the plant yields an oil from its seeds superior, for table nse to olive oil. A Pennsylvania doctor is making arrangements to go into the cul ture on a large scale in Berks county, in that State. American opium is said to yield fully as large a per cent, of morphia as the foreign article, and under the stim ulous of a short supply of the Turkish opi um, its culture may become an important item in the list of American industries. BLACK HILLS AND NEBRASKA. Resources, Relations, Railways— Rush of Immigration, Etc. Messrs. Eds. Sidney, the new point of departure for the Black Hills,in the south west corner of Nebraska, on the Union Pa cific Railway, 414 miles west of Omaha, is just now the scene of great building en terprise and business activity. The town is amply supplied with a stream of pure, cold spring water by the government aque duct from Lodgepole Creek. Since the completion of the substantial new bridge, 1,500 feet long, across the North Platte, 14 miles north of the town, and the recent es tablishment of a daily stage line from Sid ney to Dead wood; with such ample milita ry protection that no Indian depradations have yet been committed on the route, Sid ney has become a great outfitting point for the Black hills country,- which undoubted ly "comprises the largest and richest gold fields ever discovered. Capt. Miner, of Deadwood, showed me a nugget of pure gold worth fifty-four dollars, and says that he washed out 360 there last summer in less than a month, and that every claim in Deadwood Gulch pays welL During the few months this country has been open, the area of placer and gulch mining territory that has been sufficiently developed to prove its unparalleled richness, is more than three times as large as that of Cali fornia. But like all good gold mining dis tricts, tbe Black Hills has very little good farming lands, and must secure food sup plies from some other locality. South eastern Nebraska is the nearest, and is a superior farming and fruit-growing eoun try, as the innumerable small streams which rise a few miles south of the Platte, flowing south and east forming the Weep ing Water, Nemaha, Big Blue, Little Blue and Republican rivers, give more rich valley land, in a very mild and healthful climate, than can be found in any equal area on the continent. In a colony of about fifty families near Lincoln; there has been but one death during the last two years. While traveling less than five hundred miles over the Burlington & Missouri Riv er Railroad, last week, I saw more new dwellings, stores, bams, bridges, school- houses and churches, than in eight thous and miles through Texas, Arkansas, Kan sas and Colorado, during the last year. From Lincoln, Lowell, Havard, Hastings, Fairmount, Crete and other towns along this road over six thousand car-loads of wheat were shipped during 1876, and a larger quantity of corn is now cribbed along the line. At Platsmouth and Oma ha this road connects with the C. B. & Q. and runs west, crossing the headwaters of most of the rivers above named, connect ing with the TJ.
