A few weeks since, while at Crescent
City, we met our old friend, Sir. J. L.
Burton, who, while bravely preparing to
amend the damage ho had sustained in
the loss of his orange crop, was neverthe-
ess very blue over the outlook, and was
fearful lest his bearing trees had been
killed. Yesterday he was in town, with
a smiling face and a pocket full of sound
oranges taken from his trees, blues all
gone, the trees are all alive and doing as
well as could be expected, which facts
seemed to have made hini very happy.
Election for Alderman.
Mayor Donnelly h us by proclamation
ordered an election for an alderman on
the 8th inst. to fid the unexpired term
of the late Alderman A. W.Mann. So
far there has been no candidate brought
forward for the place, and no interest
whatever has !een manifested. There
has been some talk to the effect that tho
mayor had no authority to order such an
election without the co-operation of tho
city council, but the statute so far as
we can learn, is 6ilent on that poiut, and
the question seems to be open for debate.
However if the election is to be held, it
is important that a good man be ee
Iected for tho pobition, as it is essential
that we have none but good men to con

Under the above head the Ocala Item,
of Saturday last, gives this account of
a shipment of oranges from that town
to .Liverpool. England : On tho first of
December, 1(5. Dr. S. W. Moody, the
owner of one of the best orange groves
in the state, picked and prepared a box
of oranges for J. II. Clayton, who want
ed them to ship to Liverpool, England.
Dr. Moody made an agreement with Mr.
Clayton that if the fruit did not arrive in j
good condition the oranges should coat
him nothing. The oranges were Dr.
Moody's finest, and were packed by his
son, Edmund Moodv, who deserves the
praise for careful packing. Yesterday
Dr. Moody received notice of the arrival
of the orocges at their destination, and,
with the exception of one 6lightly de- I
fective orange, the whole box was in
perfect condition. Tho parties to whom
they were sent are enthusiastic, and Dr.
Moody and his son can feel justly proud
that they have demonstrated the fact
that the exportation of Florida fruit can
be successfully accomplished.
Mrs. Sparks, wife of Mr. Zacariah
Sparks, died in this city Monday morn
ing at about 2 o'clock, very suddenly.
She has been ill for a long while, but
her death was by no msans expected at
the time it occured.
Mr. Sparks came to Palatka from Butts
county, Ga., 6ometimo since, in the
hope that his wife would regain health,
but not so, and her spirit has taken flight
and gone to its eternal rest. In his be
reavement, Mr. Sparks has the sympathy
of his acquaintances and friends here.
The remains will bo interred in the

So sliurt awhile ago aud we were full
of hope and gladness, for there grew in
the garden of our hearts a sweet little bud
of rare and dainty beauty which promis
ed to bloom in our home, but alas! the
wind of desolation blew cold over us,
and the icy lieath so chilled our tender
treasure that it drooped and faded from
our adoring sight. Gentle Master, we
are heart broken and alone forgive us
that we cry aloud in our agony for one
glimpse of our little flower, one sound
of our baby 'a voic. and mercifully care
for our bleeding wounds, so that we may
lose sight of the awful grave, and see
only our darling's radiant blossoming in

Theae pages are generally shrewd

acters of senators and members, and get
things down to a very fine point. No
sum of money can bribe them to ap
proach a certain senator or member for
his autograph unless the signs of zodiac
are favorable. Success with them is tho
touchstone. "Can't ask Senator Blank

Alexander Hamilton, when secretary '
of the treasury, had an indtcreet flirta-1
tion with the wife of one of him clerks, ;
who successfully blackmailed him. His
political opponents heard of it and start- i
ed a rumor that lie was speculating in
stocks through the clerk. When this
came to Hamilton's cars he published an
account of the whole transaction in a
pamphlet, admitting that he had been
t the dupe of a designing woman and her
rascally husband, but denying that'
while secretary of the treasury, he had
speculated in stocks, basing his inside
knowledge of government finances. In
an appendix he published the letters of
his fair friend, leaving uncorrected her
queer blunders in spelling, as, for ex
ample, when she rote that she hoped
soon "to see her dear Col. harmilton, she
is alone, and begs he will rite to her
whosgrateest fault Is Lovin' him, and
clear up her doubts."
The publication of the pamphlet gave
Mrs. Hamilton great 6orrow, and when
she came to Washington to live in her
old age she had purchased a considerable
portion of the edition from the second
hand booksellers, paying them $1 for
each copy. All at once she began to re
ceive a dozen, or even more, every week,
and it leaked out that a New York book
monger had caused the reprinting of the
pamphlet, thus receiving $1 for what
i had cost him 8c. or 10i There is an or
