July ?5, 1887. President and Mrs. Cleveland have returned from their pleasant tour o: northern JNew York, looking auu feelinic all the bettr for the delightful outing and cordial reception tin ough out tho trip, , but more espec ially, at theboyhood home of the Pres ident, whtr3 his old fi lends an I neigh Lore eagerly thronged about him, glad to honor the man who had risen, like a meteor, fromtho humblest to the proudest position on earth, and who greeted each end all with a good word and a kindly smile of recognition. , At the White House, it is not yet known what other summer "plans Ihe President has arranged only the At lanta visit in October having been pos ltively decided upon but I do not think ho can refuse assent to the im portunities of St. Louis, Louisville, and other western cities. Some alarm was felt at the White House the other day at the discovery that the lathes and rafters, in the southern portico were decayed, and it was thought that the mansion was in danger of a collapse, but an examina tion lias dispelled all fear, as only slight repairs will be necessary to stay the defacing hand of 'time. I learn that the Administration regards with the liveliest satisfaction the deliberations and nominations of the Ohio Democrats, and, that the President feels that his course has been substantially endorsed. , The receipts of the Post Office Department for the third quarter of the last fiscal year was 813,012,497; expenditures, $13,272,508; deficiency, $260,021; but the latter will perhaps be reduced to about $100,000, by the receipt from international money order. A comparative statement of the business of this Department for the first three quarters of the years 1885-86-87, ' show that the receipts have constantly and largely increased and that there has been a correspond ing decrease in tho deficiency so that it is very probable, the Post Office Department will be on the self sus taining bas:e in a year or two. The count of the cash and securities in the Treasury which began two months ago incidental to a change of Treasurers has been completed and found correct to a cent, with the ex ception of the deficiency of $2.40, though a formal report will not be made till next week: Iu reply to a great many inquiries, tho coinuiisbioner of pensions replies, that, under the Mexican Pension Act, pensions can be paid from the date of the passage of the Act, Jan. 29tb, 1887, only Alien pensioners were sixty-two years old previous to that date; in the exceptions to this rule, the payment will begin on tho day when the pen sioner is 02 years of age, unless in cases of dependence and disability. Tho Secretary of the Intt rior has won additional claim to the admira tion of the fair sex by the important ruling that married women have the right to enter and buy timber and stone lands under the laws zoverninz the sale of such lands in several of the States and Tei ritories. There was no surprise in the In terior Department when the resigna tion of the chief clerk of the Patent Office who is one f those so-called "indispensable" Republicans, holding office under a Democratic Administra tion, was announced, though the Washington newspapers either sup pressed or were profoundly ignorant of the real reason, which was the Chief Clerk's relation to the Bacon defalcation it being the former's duty, nnder the law of the United States, to examine the accounts of th financial clerk every month, and certify whether or not they are correct And the Chief Clerk regularly certified to the correctness of the financial clerk's ac counts, for four years the latter be ing a defaulter all of that time, " And no sooner is thj chief clerk shown the door than he epsars the difficult task of "whitewashing" his corrupt associate in office if in nothing mora There is no doubt but what the various Departments arc literally hon eycombed with Republican rascals and thieves who should be sent on with Forger Harvey, who will serve his country twelve years in an humble capacity at Albany. In one of the Departments, a certain prominent hold over Republican, has been so urgent in insisting on the destruction of some official papeis that lie Las been piaceu uiuier surveillance as a suspect because such great solicitude must be of much significance either to this in. dividual or to his associates. Most men are content with holding one office, but I know cf several, whose ambition caunot be bound in such narrow limits, and as my intelli- genl friend,-the reader Us divined, DOUGLAS COUNTY Is Situated in Southern Oregon, and is a veritable empire of 4,950 Square Miles, being larger than the Great State of Connecticut. ' Magnificent Climate. Wonderful Resources. Live Men Wanted. ' The Review is the Medium for Reaching this Great Empire. : these gentlemen are almost invariably, Republicans, as a good Democrat . ia generally satisfied with one office. I was led to these reflections by content' plating the easy grace with which the Hon. Carroll D. Wright, holds the Federal office' of Commissioner of Labor, to which he was appointed in 1885, by Arthur, and the State o3ce of Commissioner of Labor in Massa chusetts. ! "--''' irATEJl-rEDBLERS. In many of the towns on the Mexi can side of the Rio Grande del Norte ("the Grand River of , the North"), which separates Texas from Mexico, water is scarce, although a river flows besidethej2Tli9y Jiaro few cisterns for "rainwater, find , no epHnrja, hydrants, or pumps. ' Quite a number of men make their livinjr by seHiiis WW w water. The city of Matamoras refused to allow a company -to erect watei- works to supply the- city because it would deprive the water peddlers of their business. Every peddler has a barrel with a piece of plank or scantling nailed across each end. In the middle of tho plank is a stont spike or iron pin, to which is attached a piece : of chain reaching beyond the edge of the barrel, and to the ends of : the chains are attached rawhide or other kinds of rope. Ine barrel has at one end two arge wooden plugs.' To fill it the Mexican goes up to his knees, . or deeper, in the water, pulls out both plugs and the water rushes in at one hole, while the air in the barrel goes out at the other. When the barrel is filled, the peddler turns it over on its side, steps inside the: rope, and walks through the town j seeking a cus tomer. The peddlers are queer-looking men ' with dark complection and long, straight black huir, like Indians, They wear wide-brimmed, low-crowned "sombreros" (hats), trousers rolled up to the knees, or higher, and are almost always smoking a cigarette. Some times a peddler saves his money and buys a "buro" a donkey not much higher than a table and, either tying the rope of his barrel to the saddle or putting the rope around the buro's neck, gets astride the little animal, and enjoys a ride while Sfoing around with his barrel of water. Just imagine a man wearing a hat with a brim as wide as a small parlor center-table, with no shoes, with trousers rolled above his knees, riding a donkey so small that he has to hold his knees up to keep his feet from dragging on the ground., and with a barrel of water rolling over the ground after htm! r A little more enterprise and intelli gence would soon give them water for household purposes in a decidedly bet ter way than this. Bat the peopo are ignorant, for tho most part, with little taste for improvement This will not last for ever. Our missionaries are giv ing tho gospel to the people of Mexico, and the result will be forward steps in economy as well as in spiritual life. The Xayflower. The Congregational Sunday School fc Publishing Society began with this year the publication j of a four-page weekly for youngest readers in the primary department j of our Sunday schools, the name of "The Mayflower'', being given it a3 appropriate to the "Pilgrim" Series of j publications for Suuday schools, of which it was to form a part. The Society has recently learned that a newspaper bearing the same name had for some years been published at Yarmouthport, Mass., by Mr. George Otis. This has led to a friendly correspondence, and Mr. Otis, with evident sympathy in the woik of tho Society, cordially acquiesces in the use w h?cb is made of the title, "The . Mayflower," in connection wit.h the . juvenile publication above referred to. Acknowledgements are due to Mr. Otis for his great courtesy in this matter. and it should be clearlv under-slnnd that his right to the title, "The May flower," as applied to a newspaper, is in no way affected by thi3 use which is made of it, with his knowledge and consent, by the Congregational & S. fc Pub. Society. Mr, Otis's "ilayflower" is an attractive -weekly paper (secular) of eight pages, and is intended for the family. It has a large variety of read ing matter adapted to old and young, is carefully edited, and its price, $1 per year, places it within the reach of many readers who cannot afford the higher-priced papers. Congregation alist, May 26th, 18S7. We understand correspondence, is being had with Oliyer Opiic, Jarces Otis, Horatio Alger, Jr., aud other eminent writers for the young, in order to eecuve their interesting con-, tributions for the Mayflower. The Mayflower will tc sent on trial for two -monthj for only ten cents. Try it.
