Senator Bayard undoubtedly, has his eye on the presidential chair; he is becoming so nervous about beingin- terviewed. The war agitation in Italy has bad the effect to cause Austria to build new fortifications in southern Tyrol, ready to resist any attempted inva sion. The chairmanship of the national republican committee is now agitating the minds of some of the leading po liticians. Both Cornell and Arthur are anxious to obtain this honorable position. Thirty-Four is soon to be enlarged so say the editor tlicreot. Tins ísen couraíííng news and shows that this rapcr isVvinning its way to success It is a live sheet and worthy oí id kinds of good fortune. As will bo seen by the omcial re turns in to-days issue, the republican ticket, in New-York, has been pretty generally successful, though with small majorities. Seymour was elect ed, in place of Soule, for surveyor. Grant now finds himself personally popular. During the war he was po pular as a military man. And during the latter part of bis administration he was popular as a president but un til now he was not personally popu lar o Old tilings are passing away aud things generally are becoming new Mr. F.

'From his boyhood Lincoln hada presentiment that he would be Presi dent," says a late biographer. A si milar presentiment is being indulged in at the present time by at least a dozen American statesmen. A year hence they will think better of it. There is only room for one every four years, and nominations go by accident. Congressman Felton of Georgia has come out in an open letter, announc ing that lie will not act with the de mocratic party in the coming session, lie has made the discovery that the northern democracy is as little in sympathy with the south as they were durng the war. Felton has come to the conclusion that the southern mem bers aro being used as a cats paw. to dig tho chestnuts out of the political lire. The prospects are fair for tho gain of a republican vote in the United States senate, from a quarter least ex pected. Tho vacancy wh'ch will be Mused by the expiration of tho term of Ií. E. Withers, of Virginia, will be lllled by the legislature just choscu. i . , 3 ; . -,. ., , mu me ucmocrauc party is mviueu ; between the debt-pavers and rc-ad justcrs and neilhcr is sufficiently strong to elect a senator. The 25 re publican members will therefore hold the balance of power and by the aid of one or the other wings elect their seuator. A'Karrovr Escape. Col. Boyle, who has. been connected with the N M & S. P. railroad at this dace for some time past, had a very I narrow escape 1 rom being irozen to death a few davs since, so we are in formed. The Col. has been having some mines prospected and, opened north of Elizabethtown. lie in company with several others had started to go up to the mines to see how the work was progressing. While on the wav up, tim company was caught in a very severe snow storm. hev continued their jouriiev however but by some means separa ted two of the party going together and Mr Boyle going on alone. After a time Mr. Bovlc became confused and lost his way. For several days and nights ho wondered alone in the mountain storm, with but very little covering or anything lo cat. Finally be came to where some hunters had killed and bung up some game. Know iug that to rcmaia there until the hunters came for their game was his only hope of salvation, he put in the intervening lime as best he could until the next day, when the hunters came as he had surmised and was thus saved from a terrible death in the midst of the mountains, lie was so weak when found that he had to be carried to camp on a burro. We can reasonably expect no such a rush oí imigrauts to this country as was witnessed in Kansas. The grass of New Mexico does not grow to a highth nor are the slreems large enough to invite the stranger. The fact cannot be disguised that to a tenderfoot fresh from tho states everything that is bleak, chcarless and forbidding is manifested at first sight. The pastu rage upon which herds and flocks fat ten is brown and stinted. But for the cattle no one could be induced to believe it a cattle counlryjand but for the sheep ripenning into suculeut mutton upon the mountain sides no one would believe it a sheep country. But the sheep and cattle are here v or the present it is only the mines from which vc can hope for good re turns. boon nowevcr icriuity wilt wave in the valleys and culture span the hill?. Then after it is the Switzerland of America, fruited dccp,the foreigner will behold "what heaven has done for this delicious laud." nit i ins is a neaiiny country, as is evinced every day by the rapid im provemeut in the physical condition of nearly all the invalids who come here. It has the elements in it to build the human frame up. It is a country which improves on acquaint ance. At first the impression may not be favorable, but time will creat an attachment for it in the sojourner. There is plenty ot it. The vast plains and immense extent of mountains ex pand the ideas, the "rugged outlines and pronounced characteristics tend to infuse vigor, boldness, courage and strength in tho inhabitants. Tho bold outline of the landscape, trimmed with modest hued flora, gives plcn sure to the artistic eye. After ah is said il is the land lo live in aud en joy life. Fitz John Porter. The rehearing of Fitz John Porter's case turns out to have been an ex pensive luxury. Already the expen ses have reached $15 000, not includ ing cost of printing, .which will be several thousand inoro. The cntiro mass of papers m the case was trans mitted to both houses of congress by the president on the 5th of Juno last, aud in both houses was referred, to the committees on military affairs. The subject will be token tip by tho committees as soon as possible "after the beginning of fhft next session. Whatever report my bo made upou the case will be sur q give rtyi tp angry discussion. It is probable there 59 subjeci connected with the war on which divisions of opinion are so radica, ami bitter. Gen. Porter lost a most unrelenting and implacable foe when senator Chandler died. There is no man left in cither house who will or ean fight against Gen. Porter as Chandler would have done. A Wild. Cat Disabled With a Ramrod. A buge wild-cat, nearly four feet in length, was killed on Friday morn ing last on the opposite side of the river from Hilton, by colored man named Fisher. Alter the niau had shot and mortally wounded the ani mal the latter closed in with Fisher's dog, seized his head between his two fore paws and was clawing hhn with the others in a furious manner, when the hunter thrust the end of his rani rod into one of the beast's eyes and caused him to desist from his violent assualt upon the dog, upon which he was quickly dispatched. The cat had been committing depredations for some time past among the pigs ranging in that locality, which caused the people lo be on íhc lookout for him. We notk-ed one of the enormous claws of the animal at the city hall yesterday morning. Ex. iai No E'ooiii in the Schools Superinlendent Jasper reports thai more than eleven hundred children of this city, who have applied this au tumn to our public schools for ciernen tary instruction, have been turned awav because there is no room for them. Yet this city is paying $150,000 a year for the support of the college of tne city of New York, where young men arc instructed in the lancy bran ches ot study. Upon what theory ol the common-school system is this money diverted to tho purposes of a so-called college wheu, because it is so used, moro than a thousand children are deprived ofthe purely elementary education for which they ask? - - The Eee yign. Bee-keeper3 aud farmers who have observed the motions of the little in dustrious insect, predict a mild win ter. They say the bees are working harder than ever ñiorc so than they did in the summer while sucking ti e sweets of the white clover. They have only just commenced killing off the drones, which is said to be a sure sign of a mild winter, as they usually kill them off on the first approach of cold weather. Peop'e who have studied the habits of the bee say they never make a mis take. It such be the case, the winter wiil be a mild one, JAXtli. and LaTior. If the boy who exclaims, ''Just my luck!" was truthful, he would say, "Just my laziness!" or ''.hist my inat tention!" Mr. Coddcn wrote proverbs about "Luck and Labor." It would bo well for hoys to memorize them Luck io waiting lor something to turn up. Labor, with keen eyes and strong will, will turn up something. Luck lies in bed and wishes the postman would bring him news of a legacy. Labor turns out at 6 o'clock, and with busy pen or ringing hnminer lays the foundation of a competence. Luck whines. Labor whistles. Luck relies on chances. Labor on character. Luck slips down to indigence. Labor strides upward io indepen dence. Last evening the 'particulars of a shooting affray iu the vicinity of Ba rcia inwhich one ofthe participants was seriously 'wounded, comes to us just before going to p -ess. It np pcars that a man named Tomlinson has, on several occasions, had words with a parly answering to the appel lation of IJiullilF. Yct.:rday evening the parties came iu contact at a conn t ry store where I hoy wero in the habit o t'd o i i) g 1 1 1 c i r t r ad i ng. Wo r d s on s u t d and the parties went outside to settle the difficulty. A few minutes after leaving the store a pistol shot was heard, and Tomlinson rushed into tho 6tore exclaiming, "I'm shot," and and dropped into a chair. Upon exa mination it wa found that he had received but a slight flesh wound, and no serious results are apprehended. Biiitiifl', who fired the shot is still at large.

Another bridge Accident. Chicago, Nov. 15. South bound freight train on Chicago and Alton road went through the bridge at Kiverdale, near Alton, this morning, six freight cars tailing into the river. Brakcman was killed and engineer and fireman injured. The officers can not account for the accident, as the bridge was new and extremely well nude. Damage $7,000. No delay will be experienced in trains. i 9 1 The Cuban insurrection. Havana, November, 5. It is official ly reported that Captain General Blanco left the district of Manzanillo completely pacified, and his forces arc now pursuinir the insurgents in Jirpiani districts.

The Colombia authorities have se cured a torpedo boat to sail for Cal lao. Ships loading guano at Lobos have been ordered to discontinue work". In tho case of a liveryman against Father Dufrcsne, on trial at llolyokc, Mass., the uiry returned a verdict against tho priest for $3,463. The priest had lorbulden his parishioners to patronize the Hvcrvman for tho reason that the latter had disobeyed the wishes of tho priest. The busi ness of the liveryman had in conse ouence fallen off one-half. The court held that while tho church authorities had a right to excommunicate the of fender, their power ended Iherp, and any interference with bis business, or anv attempt to injure his custom, was malicious and unlawful. The priest did not exceed his authority in forbidding his parishioners to ride to church in plaintiff's carriages, but when he undertook to prevent them trom patronizing the livervman in secular matters he became amenable to the law. The jury staid out two hours and found for the plaintiff, as stated. Monday next is the time fixed by Judge Ilallett for the reopening of the Atchison, Topcka Ac Santa Fc and Itio Grande railway cases. The 'alter has applied to the supreme court of the United States for a writ of man damns to compel Judge Ilallett to en force the diceo ot that court in re gard to the prior right of way through the grand cañón of the Arkansas. The hearing of argument upou the appli cation has, we understand, been post poned until January. Whether Judge Ilallett will adjourn the hearing of the suits pending in his courts until after the supreme court shall have rendered its decision on the applica tion for mandamus, or proceed to try tbein, remains to be seen. Denver Times. . The account of the naval combat between the Pcruvi.m iron-clad and the Chilian rams, faintly indicates to what dread perfection science lias brought huge death-dealing machine ry. It suggests how, in modern war fare, tho least scope is left fore coura ge and heroism, and how conflicts, upon which the fate of nations may depend, seems bciur redufcd to mere mechanical problems, admitting of but one solution, which, without bloodshed, might be ascertained by a calculation of the armaments ofthe respective disputants. i i A father never thinks his ten-year-old son is stronger than a horse until he employs him to turn the grindstone to sharpen an old ax that is about as sharp at one end as at the other. The oid man bears on until tho lad's eyes bulge out and his trousers buckle flies off, and just before he bursts a blood vessel his father encourages him with tho remark, Does it turn hard?' Thousands of boys have run away from home and become pirates and grcenbackers in order to escape, a siege at the grindstone The preliminary examination ofthe Tndian murderers has commenced at Lou Pinna.

Mrs. Duuiway, of the New North west, at a literary reunion at Salem, Oregon, "toasted" the gentlemen as follows : 'God bless cm! They halve our joys, they double or sorrow, they treble our expenses, they quadruple our cares, they excite our maguanmity, they in crease our sclt-respcct, they awake our enthusiasm, they arouse our affec tions, they coulrol'óur property, and out-maneuvcr us in everything. This would be a very dreary world with out 'em. In fact I may say, without prospect of 8iiccossful contradiction, that without 'em it would not be much of a world anyhow. We lovo em, and the clear beings can t ncip wo control 'cm, and the precious fellows don't know it. "As husbands thev arc always con venient, though not always on hand; as beaux thev are by no means match less.' They are most agrceabie visi tors; they are handy at state fairs, and indispensable at oyster-saloons. Ihcv are spfendid as escorts tor some other fellows wife or sister, and as friends they are better than women. As our fathers they arc inexpressibly grand. A man may be a failure in business, a wreck m constitution, not enough to boast of as a beauty, noth ing as a wit, lcs3 than nothing a a le gislator for woman's rights, and even not very brilliant as a member ot Hie press ; but if ho is our own father we overlook his shortcomings and cover his peccadilloes with the divine mantle of charity. Ihen, as our husbands, how we love to parade them as para gons! In the sublime language of the inspired poet . 'We'll lie for them, We'll cry for them, And if we could we'd fly for them, We'd anything b it die for them." When you have alo .ved a monto employ your knife to pare a pear, you should not confide to him the se cret that the particular blade he used is a ripper to pare corns. Somehow it makes him wish ho had not eaten the peach. The question of having women as factory inspectors was discussed at the Trades Union congress in Edin burgh, last month. W. 11. SHUPP.
