Mulligan, of Chicago, the cele brated Fenian leader, is again at work stirring up the Irishmen, with the view of marching into Canada in the event of war between England and Russia. Although Canada might be able to take care of herself in that emergency, yet there can be no doubt that in case of war such a raid into Canada would be attempted. Of course the United States Government would be in duty bound to quell any Buch disturbance from our Irish-Amer- can citizens, and no such expedition would be allowed from this country, yet it would be very difficult to pre vent it and a very unpleasant task for us. We have too many good people in Uncle Sam's dominions that deeply sympathize with the Irish patriots. While their cause may De a hopeless one, stilla Russo-English war would give the best opportunity for a strike for liberty. Col. Mulligan thinks that 100,000 men armed with Remington rifles could be raised in thirty days to march on Canada. LE DUCTS TRIUMPH. Le Due is the name ot the Com missioner of Agriculture at Washing ton, and he's a clever fellow too. He will send the seeds if you ask your Congressman, though he may be a little slow sometimes. But here's what the New York Tribune says : "The House bits voted that we are hereafter to get our seeds from the agricultural de partment, as we now get appointments ia the treasury department and expla nations of the civil service order by Congressional districts, for each dis trict its share, its whole share and nothing but its share. No district is to be favored more thau another; slips of the jub-jub tree are to be distribu ted with the sternest impartiality, and every Congressman will be supplied with a daily bottle of cold tea from ! the department of gardens. The per nicious practice of manipulating polit ical conventions by secret aud corrupt distributions of pumpkin seeds one of the most demoralizing forms of pat ronage will now be brought to a stop." And the Chicago Times says : 'The United States of America will know no peace until the government plants Le Due." " There is something in the wind, as the St. .Louis Republican is getting one of its violent fits on again. We can always tell when it has something in view, or as the boys say, when it "has a hen on," for it can say meaner things about decent people than any print in the State. We rather suspect it is trying to get the good graces of the ir reconcilables so as to fight Hutclrns when he begins his canvass. Hutca it the bloodiest kind of a bloody shirt to the venerable old scold, and if he should be Senator we really believe the Republican will take something or has taken it already, perhaps. The State Democratic Central Com mittee will meet June 1st. The con vention will probably be fixed for the latter part of June.

The war party in England are known as "The Jingoes." from the song which they have adopted as a war cry, heginning thus: "We do not want to fight, but by jingo if we do, etc." The Pnucess Teck, formerly Princess Mary of Cambridge, the cousin of the Queen, from her out spoken zeal for war, is known "Queen of the Jingoes."

Among the transients at the Palmer louse yesterdey were a pair of nota bles, whose appearance on an vearthly scene since antediluvian days would be enough to nttnict public attention. They were registered as Cap. and Mrs. AL V. Bates, and thev were escorted to the largest parlors in the hotel. The hackman who brought them from the depot charged double fare, and the middled sized man who attempted to shield the lady from the wet discover ed that the handle of his umbrella was a half a yard too short. Mrs. Bates is seven feet and eleven inches high, and her husband the captain, is with in a hali an inch of eight feet, lhey lave been traveling together for eight years. Mr. iiates is a native ot Ken tucky, and his wife ras born in Nova Scotia, of Scotish parents. The exact light of a giant is about as hard to ascertain as the exact age of Henry enkms, Old 1'arr, or the numerous body-servants of George Washington a few inches or a few years more or ess will not be scrutinized bv the reader, and the claimant for pre- mm eminence in ae or in height usually gets the benefit of a doubt. There is no doubt about the hight of Mr. and Mrs. .Bates. lhey are the longest couule on record. United, they stand within die inch and a half of sixteen eet high. The giant is a genial son of Anak, who likes to take his ease in his inn and talk over his manifold experience in this world ot wonders. Unlike most giants, he is well propor- oned, firmly knit, with no supernu- . ous nesh upon him although he weighs 478 pounds and with an opeu intelligent countenance. He savs that when he visited the Tower of London he tried on the suit of armor worn by the famous Og, who is claim ed to have been eight feet four, and found he could not stand up straight in it, the helmet and foot pieces only being too large for him. He also had his suspicions about the real dimen sions of Murphy, the Irish giant, after measuring himself against the skeleton in the British museum, and the armor of Guy of Warwick, who was said to be nine leet three inches, was found to be several inches short of the measure of our Kentucky champion. Neither Murphy nor Guy are on hands to contest these points, and it may be as well not to raise this controversy. It is enough to say that the cap tain is away ahead of Long John. He is not posted as to the cause of his elongation. lie is one ot twelve children who are all of ordinary height. In a general way he is inclined to think the lime water of Kentucky has something to do with it, but he did not give his opinion with the assurance of a scientist, so the interviewer did not press the point, hut turned to look up to his amiable wife. She rose, and kept on rising, on being introduced, until the visitor began to ask internal ly, "Will the line stretch out till the crack ot doom?" This is the tallest woman who ever traveled on a railroad, The first impression is almost bewilder ing, giving the impression that you are looking at a being through a mag, nitying glass. As yet she is not a raon trosity, but quite shapely, and withal most ladylike and well bred in man ners and conversation. At the age of six she was as tall as her mother something over five feet and she did not attain her full hight till the age of 21.

A Practical Test of a Flying Ma chine to ba Made at the Opening of tbo Permanent Exhibition- Philadelphia IUcorl. The reopening of the Permanent exhibition on to morrow a week will as be a signalized by the first public ex hibition ot a flying machine. In America, during the past ten years, over two hundred flying machines have been invented, and all have failed. In London a joint stock company has just given up the ghost, after having expended some $25,000 in experimenting with a 'patent flyer,' which the inventor still insists, lacks but one essential to become the acme o'f perfection. Considerable attention has also been given to the subject in France, aud at various periods the government has been induced to grant heavy appropriations to self-styled inventors for the purpose of construct ing machines which have invariably turned out utterly worthless. A few years ago a couple of inven tors, French and Belgian, succeeded in putting together contrivances by which they could float through the air for a limited period. I heir triumph however, was of limited duration Both came headlong to the ground in . . a a a the midst ot what tnev believed was to be the climax of their glories, am their untoward fate has had the inevitable effect of inducing the Con tinenal inventors to refrain from risking life in the cause ot science. And now an American has pro duced a machine which, it the reports of repealed experiments and the opinions of exports are to be relied upon, is the par entuence ot Hying machines, iu. r. lutchel is the name of this genius. Thirty five years ago he was born in Corry, Pa. Of late he has resided in Bridgeport, Conn. Since early boyhood he has been en gaged in inventing nnu periectiug a f - various kinds ot labor-saveing ma chinery. Seven years ago he directed his attention to aerial navigation, and it is the result of these seven years of toil which will be submitted to the criticism of Philadelphia's citizens on opening day. liitchels machine diners in almost every detail from all previous inven tions. Roughly described, it consists of a black silk cylinder some twelve feet in diameter and twenty-four in ength. The cylinder will hold near- y o.OOO feet of gas. Susiended from this by jneaus of cords and rods is n car composed ol slender brass rods which extend the whole length of the cylinder, tapering to a point at cither ! end. The platform upon which the operator sits is attached to the centre of" the car. Two crank- attached to the wheels, frout the seat. The wheels connect with an upright haft, and to this at the lower end is attached a fan closely resembling the screw of a propeller. The fan, which is constructed of thin brass plates, is evel with the bottom of the blatform, Another brass fan is affixed to the rant end of the car, and this is so constructed that it can be turned to any direction by the occupant simply moving his feet, while at the same time he can comfortably work the centre tan with his hands. When the operator prepares for his trip the silk cylinder is filled with ivdrogen gas. this will sustain, he says, all but a fraction of the weight to be carried, and the rest, lutchel claims, will be lifted by the central an, which presses upon the air with movement similar to that ot a pro peller wheel in the water. A man of ordinary strength can,hc says, revolve the handles at the rate of about 00 a minute, which will give the fan about 3,500 revolutions. Mr. Ritchel, the inventor, chatted pleasantly with the Record yesterday. saying: "All l contend is possible lor a human being to move in the air like a bird. And that my machine will ac complish this. I don't pretend that it will rival the balloon, going through the storm or above the clouds.but I o assert that it will keep you moving in the air until vou want to come down, and that is more than has ever been accomplished yet. We have had several satisfactory experiments be fore experts, aud I have myself sailed about in the air for four hours at a time without descending to terra firnia. Ritchell's machine has already been patented in America, Canada, Eng- and and France. Two are in course ot construction for permanent exhibi tion at Niagara Falls, where they will be operated from the waters edge to high up in the air. Another is shortly to be sent to Paris for exhibition at the Exposition. The fame of the in vention has already reached the con tinent, and only a few days ince Zi. Ritchel was surprised at his Connrt icut residence by three Italian engin eers, who had been delegated by the Italian government to report upon the merits of the contrivance, in view, it is thought, of adapting it for military purposes.

Monkey's in Their "Cups." The ape family resembles man. Their vices are human. They love liquor, mid fall. In Darfour and Senar the natives make a fermented beer, of which the monkeys are passionately fond. Aware of this, the natives go to parts of the forests frequented by the monkeys, and set on the ground calabashes full of enticing liquor. As soon as the monkey sees and tastes it, he utters loud cries of joy that oou attract his comrades. Then an orgie begins, and in a short time thej all show degrees of mtoxication. Then the negroes appears. Some of the drinkers are too far gone to dis trust thein, but apparently take them for a larger species of their own genus. The negroes take some up, and these begin to weep and cover them up with maudlin kisses. When the negro takes one by the hand to lead him off, the nearest monkey will cling to the one which thus finds a support, and endeavor to go on also. Another will ciutcn mm, ana so on, until a negro leads him, and so on, until a negro leads a staggering line of ten or a dozen tipsy monkeys. When finally brought to the village, they are se curely caged, and gradually sobered down: but for two or three davsm gradually diminishing supply " of liquor is given them, so as to reconcile them by degrees to then state of cap tivity.

The Stock and Grain Transporting Boutes of tha West and Worth west. DOT. I'ajier No. 4. Less than Cut-en years ago there was only ten miles of railroad track in the State of Minnesota. The Stale to-dav numbers more than thirty railroads; all are not completed, but to project a rail way is to build it, nine times out often. Looking at the top of a uernrr ph- ically roriect map, we see a line stretching the entire width of the State and half the length of a tenitory. It is an iiis'gnificant little line, a school-boy could draw as good nn one on a slate if the slate was 450 miles long. Theie has been a good deal of wrang ling over this little black streak known as the Northern Pacific K. II. This Northern l'ai:6c Company waschariered by Congress on the 2nd day of July, 18ti4,and authorized to contract a railinad fioni Lake Superior through the Stale of Minnesota and the Territories of Dakota, Montana, Idaho and Wadiiiigi'in to I'll get Sound, with a branch ij the vhlley of the Columbia rivet to I'..rl and, in the Stale of Oregon. Io aid of its construction Congress m de a grant of al ternate scclisns of land for foriy miles on each side of the line of the propwed road, or an aggregate nmftiint (estimated by the Coin iiii.ioiivr of the Public LuuN) of 47, 000,000 acie, or 74,42 square miles.

This great benefactor (?) of his race would show the world that there was a cure for consumption. He would establish an Italy of his own, where the hack should cease and the crimson rose of death should fide. not into paleness but into a healthy pink ; where attenuated forms vhould as sutne rounded proportions and where the suffering of both sexes should rise up and call him blessed. But alas, fur human hopes. Jay Gould found, when the" first spadeful of dirt was thrown up from his utqieopled dominion, a base of alkali that no vine or fig tree would grow upon, and so his 'uramer Isle of Eden" scheme had to be abandoned. He has lately taken a hand in the management of the Chicago and Kock Island and Chicago and Northwestern rail ways. His connection with the last named road began in 1872, when he enrnertd the stock. Atthit time he held all the com mon stock and was unable to find a market. L. M. Mills mananged to sell 20,000 shares for him. The remainder was held by Gould and the members of the Northwestern pool until the panic of September, 1873. Then his associates were compelled to dispose of theirs, the price breaking from 75 to 38. Gould bought up the stock thrown over by his associates, at panic prices, and when the re-action occurred, upon the opening of the Stock Exchange, he sold oat his immense line at a profit ; the price rnn from 38 to 62, and the last share of his stock was sold for that figure. Not long ago be became in volved in a quarrel with the Chicago, Bur lington and Qnincy people, because of their hostility to the Union Pacific, aaothcr road in which he is largely interested.

This company boasts that it once had in it employ, a brakeman, who rose step by step front that hutuhle posi tion and wages amounting to $325 per year, to the General Superintei.dency o the Central PaciSc railroad, of California, with a salary of $20,000 per year, and the control of nearlv $2.0 mil of trick: the name of this prodigy is Adrian N.

The erain shipments over this line have been immen-n:; three million, five hundred thousand bushels of wheat were shipped over the main and branch lines in 1S75, in '76 the shipments were still heavier. In no state, except California, is the soil so adapied to the growth of wheat, and in Minnesota alone, enough might be raised to feed the entire population of the globe.
