Thu Pillowing resolutions were then pi’opos id. It.solved, That thof-voi-recurring depres sion of trade,the chronie poverty <>f the in dustrial < lasses,and the difficulty of finding work, even on starvation wages, are in tolerable evils, which ought not to be tamely endured by those who sufF'r from them, and cannot safely be ignored by any class in the nation. Resolved, Th it these evils are the re sults of the denial of equal rights to men in the el meins provided by their Creator for the employment of labor; and that wo, therefore, pledge ourselves in every way to imperatively demand the restoration to the whole people of their birthright in the land. Henry George was then introduced ns a foreigner whose name was to them a household word. The sc. no was almost indescribable. The vast multitude sway ed with enthusiasm, while hats were frantically waved, and cheer after cheer rent tlru «ir. It was some minutes before Mr. Gcorgi could proceed, and when he did, his short, e isive sentences were pro jected by a resonant, thrilling voice a much further distance over the surface of’ the crowd than any ol the other speakers had been able to penetrate. Additional foice was lent to bis words by the dram atic gestures ot the speaker. Addressing bis vast audience as “Men of London,” Mr. George made a happy hit by disclaiming the title of “foreigner," lie gi eeted them us fcllo ot that republic which was greater than any pol itical division —as fellow-citizens of that world-wide federation they hud yet to make— a federation not ol kings, but ol people. [Cheers. 1 Mr. Miller (continued the speaker) has pointed to the vast area now under the flag of the British Lm piro—one seventh ot the habitable globe. , Tct, as 8,000 yeMsago Tiberius Grac- j chi said to the citizens of another world-* j wide empire, “Men of Rome, they call , you masters ot the world; yet there is not one inch of oil you can claim as your own,”so say Ito you. [Ch rs,| Men of Lon don, un not England, what rights have you? None whatever, except as you buy them from day to day, from mouth to mouth, from year to year.

'>y the sin ot the denial of justice. A bishop t!ie other day, in a letter to the Lord M tyor. dec! tred that misery always ■\isted [Derisive laughter.! So it did, mil! so it would until men fallowed the commands ot FI ui whom the Bishop Oi ' IL*' lord professed to follow, hut whose ! Gospel he did not preach. That wus not J the Gospel ot Christianity, 5* was the Gos- I pci of Judas, who sold his M ister tor thirty pieces of silver. Let th, m distrust the men who wanted simply io lie kind to them,. Kindness i was n good thing in its way, but what was needed for social regeneration, t° raise wages, audio put an cud to pau perism, and to give every men an oppor tunity ol earning a good living by his la bor, was not kindness but justice, I would, therefore, call upon you to stand up and demand your rights—to ask not for charity, but to ask for that which is your due —that which the Tjord intend ed tor you, God had not brougnt men into this worjd, Mr George went on to say, that one man might be charitable to another, but that every man should work for his own living; and how could men work unless the natural opportunities were open to than? The principle which went to the very root and centre of ali reforms whs this — that all men were crea ted equal, with equal right# to the land on which they were born. Let them stand up for that and assert it in every way. It fhey were in earnest, each man in his way could become a missionary for this truth. They must show the govern ing classes that they had right to be considered in this matter, and that it whs one of vital importance to them; anil lie believed that if they were of one mind, and determined that they would have their rights, they would be sure to succeed* There was a power which, if once awoke, all the forces of the State must quail be-' tore it—that was the power of public opinion. It would be worth fighting for, even though tills great city were laid in dust and ashes; it would be right if that was the only way of accomplishing these reforms, and of putting an end to that iniquity which lodged one man in a palace and another man in a hovel. But until men knew wh it they wanted, and how to obtain it they could not fight; and if they stood up like men there would be no omission to resort to any violent mea sures. If only the workingmen of this country were deteimined to gain their rights, no one would dare to refuse them. Charity could not aid them. At Glasgow the merchants raised £3,000 by charity, but that only amounted to about 2s. per head of the unemployed, and ihat did not include women and children. Let them stand up for right and justice, and they would not only be standing up lor their own rights, bm for the rights of men all the world over. FL* came to them from Skv*.

[Cheers.] The Overland Monthly for August A personal acquaintance oi Gonercl Grant in his Californian days, contributes a few brief remintscenses of the General to the August Overh.nd; and Warren Gl uey, whoso remarkable account of the Battle of Shiloh, in the June Overland, has called out letters from all parts ot the East, adds an outline analysis « f the mil itary caret rot Giant. The editorials, likewise, com.mint iipm the socrct of his hold upon the popular affection. In the same number of the Overland a Conlcdcr-. ate ofiicer narrates the battles of Lookout Mountain and Missionary Ridge. The spirit displayed in ibis article is yery significant. ' The Overland's marked gain in busi ness and literary lines is attracting com ment in every direction. The present, number contains a large proportion of Pacific summer sketches: “Summer in the Sierra,” “A Hilo Plantation,” “Roses in California,” “Early Horticulture in California,” —the last by C. 11. Shinn, containing much forgotten material, res urrected from journals and reports of early days. The most notable ot more serious articles is a full and scholarly dis cussion, from a practical point of view, ot “Ihc Metric System,” by Professor John Le Conte. This distinguished scholar is unqualified for the system, and gives smur very important figures wich regard to the saving fo be accomplished lay it. The important series, “The Building of a State,” closes the history of ike Pioneer Churches with a sketch ot the “Euly Days of the Protest; nt Episcopal ChU’ch in California,” by Rev. E. J. Lion, sou ol one of the pioneers. The Dairy Business—The capital iu vested in tint diary business iuilu United Stales is computed to be over 200 million dollars and to employ 700,000 men and nearly 1,000,000 horses. A milk producer, who ought to know that the average cow yields about 480 gallons of milk a year, giving for the country a total product of 6,750,000,000 gabons. Twelve cents a gnlldti is a fair price to es tmiate the value of this milk at u total return of £.310,000,000 to the diary tann ers. Fifty per cent ol the milk is made into cheese and butter. It lakes 27 pounds of milk to make one of butter, and about ten pounds of milk tc make one of che. se. There is the same amount ot nutrition in 0J p m ids of milk that there is in one of beet. A fat steer fur nishes .70 per cent of boneless beef, but it would require about 21,000 sleors, weighing 1,000 pounds each, to produce the same amount of nutrition as the an nual milk product docs. AFTEE FEEEX- A friend residing in Baltimore had in fcis possession a small alligator, which had been sent him from Florida Its' habita tion was a tub partially filled with water, kept out-doors. During one of the cold maps of the past winter, in the night, the water became completely frozen, imprison ing the reptile in the ice. with bat a small portion of bis body protruding therefrom. To all appearance the auimal was us dead as one of the stuffed specimens seen iu a museum collection. The want of time pre cluding its extrication in the morning, it was allowed to remain frozen, and was soon forgoLUm iu the maze of the cares of the duv. For forty-eight hours the reptile thus re mained frozen and lifeless, at the end of which time, being thawed out, vitality be came visible, and iu a short time it was as animated as ever, with no evidence of hav ing in the least snlfered by the prolonged frigorifle confinement. Here is an instance In which the vital spark see.ms not to have been extinguished by the freezing, nor the animal's organism to have been mutilated, but that vitality merely remained torpid or dormant during the freezing, and ready to respond to its functions whenever the ani mal's organism returued to its normal con- I dibion. A OtiEKK Woman, says Milnes, in hi a Eotheu, wears her whole fortune oa l et person iu the shape of jewels or gold coins . I believe that this mode of investment is adopted in a great measure for satetj’s sake. It has the advantage of enabling r* suitor to reckon as well as to admire, ihs object of ids ailect.iou.
