A fow New Vorkurs throw out a hint occasionally about (taverner Hill, upon thu ground of his ability to carry that pivotal state. NRw rona's IMPORTANCE. Tho importance of tho Km pi rc Mate in tho political balance is admitted all around. With its electoral vol Iii* Ro publicOUS could eleet their <? iud ida te and win back tho control of tho ? xcculivc branch of Uio government, without ?i.. vote of Connecticut, Imliana or Now Jeraey, or a Bingle State south i ; Muson and Dixon's lino and thu i >i . , river.

It is obsorvablc in tho conversation of these returning political prophets that Democratic HCiituncut throughout thc eonntry is becoming reconciled t*> thc superior sagacity of tho President in his efforts to elevate a Democratic adminis tration al?i\e die old ?di a that tho public offices aro the rewards of political ser vices, regardless ot every Other COUSill e ration. uni TALK A nour lir.AiNK. Tho friends of Mr. Maine return with afresh supply of enthusiasm over bis iirospects, especially sinco tho election in daine.

Gonorol Logan is oxpcctcd here early ni \f mouth. His champions olahn Un?t lu Pnciilo ?lope trip has added much strength to his position ua a candidate. Ilia notion on thc Paine investigation ia c aimed to have lost him friends in bia party in Ohio. Jt is not likely, however, that ho would pick up any delegates ibero, us I ilalno and Sherman cover that ground. Thom is much talk of Foroker as a posi ?bk? dark horse in event of an irreconcilable coldest between Blaine ami Hhermnu. Thc status of Ivlmunds is a matter of speculation. The chances ot Harrison, of Indiana, arc coupled with tho result of his present Senatorial con test Summing up the situation ut this carly ??'.nit of observation the senti ment of nepublicans is very generally in favor of a \Vcstl VA man at tho he ad of tho ticket with an Kastein man, soma strong por 8 >U from New York, for the second placo. Judging from tho talk of politi ciaus on both sides the meeting of Con grot I will witness the laying of thc wires lor the picking up of delegates by the diirorenl aspirants for nomination, so as to enter the convention with as good a how.ug as possible. From present in dications Blaine's friends will control tho convontion to a greater extent than any oin candidate, but whether he can control it as against the hold may be considered doubtful, after the experience of tho mismanaged interests of tho can didates in the iiehl in 1881.

So great a commotion has been caused by tiiese repeated jail deliveries, that a special connssion hus been sent hi Siberia to inquire into their causes, and io rc irgnui/.o thc entire system of prison jo> ornmont. A number of high officials, under whose charge the escaped prisoners were, have been suspended, and some uftieors, who wore either criminally neg tigunt or else assisted in releasing the prisouors, have been arrested and thrown into prison.

HomeKoloblo Wedding* in lite Karly l*nn or tho Otiliiry-..Matrimonial Connections of Washington, \iinnix mel ilel?cruou. (Otek in Gloolnnit' Kcqulror.) Even our I'residents have poor luck with their marriages. Washington mar ried ins adopted daughter, who was his wife's grandchild to Jus own nephew, and the last I heard ol' them was the sale to the government of some of Washing ton \s old furniture hy the posterity. John Adams had a daughter named Abigail, who married a .young r?volu* tionnry officer named Smith. Intaking care of Smith, who was but mediocre, Adams incurred ?nany enmities. The ladies may he further interested in the subject of the marriages of im portant peoplo. JUr. .Jefferson had very interesting daughters, and they married Virginia politicians around him, to very little satisfaction in at least one case. Maria, the best looking of these gi.ils, died in 1804. Uer husband had bee:: a sporting man and horseman, and it ap pears that both the sons-in-law of Jeflor Bon required endorsements, cte., which brought the old man's gray hairs down to mendicancy, in addition to his own financial errors. Aaron Burr, on tho other hand, had ono dnught< r, and she made n brilliant marris go, but it was her father who in volved nor and her husband in his un scrupulous financial and political tricks, ruined her husband, and when she em barked from South Carolina with her child to seek her father,^ she met some where in this world an agonizing death, lt is a legend that pirates took the vessel and made this brilliant young woman and her child walk the plank. No evi dence, however, exists on tho subject, except hearsay ; at that tinto there were privateers and pirates. The most brilliant marriage ever madl in the political circles of the country in thc tina's of .Washington was that ot' Ann Willing to William Bingham. They married carly in those, days, especially where there was money, and Ann Will ing married at sixteen. Her husband was descended from a (Quaker black smith, hut his family hod for four gen elations made prosperous marriages, and during our revolutionary war the hus band got out of tho country and held a position of hall British, half American consul in ono of the West India islands to which privateers resorted. He came home very neb, and received as well tho Bingham moneys, and he choose the > daughter of Willing, who was president of tlie United States Bank, and business partner of Uobort Morris. Tho Willings wore tho finest people in Philadelphia. Secretary Bayard is desconded from ono of them. Freshly married in her bloom, tho bride and husband went to Europe and remained away live years. They were introduced at thc coin!, of thc French king by Minister Adams, and j thc young tuan w?is greatly admired us ? tho first American ever seen abroad. When he returned, at tho commence ment of Washington's administration, they built tho finest house ever seen in | Philadelphia up to that timo, and not excelled perhaps in the present day. It was Illicit with tho best furniture to be bought in France and tho best pictures from Italy. Along caine young Baring, tho English banker, and saw the daugh ter of this pair so superbly brought up, with a town house and country house, and ho married her; and tho larger por tion of tho Bingham proporty, which amounted to $1,200,000 in money, w ent j to swell tho capital of tho Barings. The young mother, however, having lost herself in fociety, caught cold in an im perfect dress one night, and was seized with consumption, and she died in the West Indies at an early agc She ha a sister of whom great things was expect ed, but along came a dissolute French nobleman, without any standing or pro priety, and ho tempted this girl to go out with him one night, and ho kent her out all Light, to the horror and wonder of the town, and then made a compro-j mise with her parents whereby they yave him money to send her home; she was divorced by the Legislature, her father having become United States Senator, and so little was m ado ot' tho matter by the Baring family that she was solicited in marr' jo by her brother-in-law Bar ing, and tftor living w ith him until his decease she married another French nobleman and passed out of notice. President Taylor's daughter run away with Jefferson Davis. President Mon roe's daughter married lier cousin, and they have left some descendants at Washington and some in tho State of i Maryland. Nellie (Inuit is tho last President's daughter to draw attention. She saw a young, bright faced English man on a steamship and fell in love with him without much reason or inquest, and ho turned ont to bo apparently a sort of boys' Oom pan ion, hardly ever looking up to tho dignity of acquaint ance with grown men. Ho therefore seeks his pleasure up in Loudon, when ho has any money to Spend, and she stays at homo with her baby. Tho marriage of Blaine's son is il tea tiraony to tho beauty, modesty and sweotuosa of Mrs. Nevins, tho mother of tho bride, who has been too much es teemed on all these points for her (^nigh ter to puss into nothingness. In this case we know what tho poet means when ho says: A thing of beauty isa joy forever; Its loveliness increases; it will never Poss into nothingness, but still will keep.

Thc hardier email grains, srach as rye and barley, may bo sown during this and tin; next month. They aro valuable tu soding crops iu early spring; barlej richer ami more rolishcd oy stock, rye hardier and bettor adapted to poor html. Whoro there is moro rye than eau be fed in its green state, it i.s'cut ami cured us hay, provided tt is cul before tho head? aro out. Jt becomes woody and hard SOOQ after the heads form, and is thou of little value. Harley may be allowed to ripon, and bo harvested and fed Uko oats. There is a general impression that the beard is in the way of doing this, but a gentleman recently informed us that ho has fed barley in the sheaf to his horses for twenty years without injury; that sometimes the beards collect be tween t ho lips and jaws, but are easily removed l>y tho finger, and tho animal suffers no special inconvenience. We aro also reliably informed that unthrosL ed barley is quito commonly fed to horses in California. Whore one lias pretty good land, therefore, barley might be sown as a substituto for fall oats, in localities where the latter is very liable to bo winter killed. But our special object in calling atten tion to these crops is to present their claims OS means for preserving tho fer tility of soils. In the first place, a very largo portion of our lands aro Iv if baro through the winter, with nothing lu pro tect thom from being washed away by tho heavy rains td* that season. A grow ing crop, especially otic with numerous roots, tonds to hold the soil firmly. For this reason alone, woro there no other, it would pay a farmer to sow from a half bushel to three pecks of rye per aero in his cotton fields at the last ploughing ol' the crop. Tho rye, after having done its work of holding tho soil, might be grazed, or cut in the sining for soiling purposes, or might bc plowed under to enrich the soil. But there is another very important work which a green, growing crop has to perform, which is not generally or fully appreciated, lt is a great anli-leacher; it prevents tho washing out of tho avail able nitrogeu in tho soil by rain water. The ultimate form which nitrogen as sumes in the soil is nitric acid (aqua fortis) and is found in combination with potash, soda, lime, etc., forming salts known as nitrates. Now all nitrates are soluble in water, and besides aro not held by rocks as phosphoric acid and potash are. Tho nitrates arc very easily washed or leached out. This is not only capable of demonstration in a laboratory, but has been abundantly shown by collecting tho water from uuderdrains (tiles) anti analyzing them. It has been found that where the water ?.Mine from tiles undera bare, naked piece ol' land, the nitrates in it exceeded by a considerable quantity that from tiles overlaid by a greet:, grow- | ing crop. Thc grow ing crop appropri ated and held thc nitrates-thc bare, soil let it go. Hut this is not all. Thc frequent plowing and .stirring of the soil encour ages tho formation ?d' nitrates-the in soluble, inert forms of nitrogen in the soil, aro thereby changed into soluble nitrates. J lenee in autumn the soils of our cotton fields aro comparatively rich in nitrate i, and continue so until the winter rain leaches thom out. A cotton Hold is not utily, therefore, most liable to washing, but most exposed also to greatest leaching. Above other fields it needs: tho protection of a grow ing crop through tho winter and early spring, lt is not too late yet to give it this protec tion. Sow rye now, and continuo to sow, if needs be, till the first ol' fc)CC0m bor. Sow southern raised or home seed-that from tho northwest will not give satisfactory results. Evon if a field IS intended for corn thc next year, sow it in rye now and turn it under next spring. Farmers think it right to sow and plow in peas for enriching land in summer j let thom try tho same thing with rye in winter, lt will cost no more, and probably do more good. Peas in- I crease thc supply of available nitrogen in tho soil; rye will hold that already present and prevent it? loss. Fields cov ered with winter grasses arc neither washed nor leached they increase in fertility. Lot us bring our summer cul tivated lands as nearly as possible into tho same condition by clothing them in winter with a carpet of green, w. :., j. V Uorgeoiin lllval of r>cnator Tabor.

(Krom (bo Noir York St ir ) The Rev. Win. J. Sherman, tho priest of Red Hook Point, whose murringo witli Miss Tillie McCoy a short time since created such un excitement ia Ro man Catholic circles, yesterday received a reporter in the little house where ho is now living with his wife, and for the first time told UOW he was led to chango his happiness hereafter for tho enjoyment of matrimony in (ho present. Dr. Sherman has lost much ol' his priestly appearance. His hair is longer anti brushed straight up from the foreheud, his mobile bps uro shadowed bv a heavy moustache, and tho suavity of thi s piritual ?ul visor has given piuco to tho fran!;, hearty manner of ro bust youth. "I left tho Catholic Church because I was in love," ho said. "I had known Miss McCoy for sixteen years, and when I was a priest called on her often in a friendly way. When I found that 1 loved her I proposed lo her. She accepted mo, and wo were married. 1 was nol drugged or made drunk, but was married willi my eyes wide open, and have lived happily with my wilt: ever since. Altor our mar riage wo went immediately b> Boston on our honeymoon, anil stayed there until .July 0, when we came back to Brooklyn for a few days. ! then took my wife to Philadelphia, when; I obtained employ ment, through Councilman McCullough, of that city, as clerk in tho Ohio J .ail road office. Wo stayed lhere about two months, boarding in thc ( i irani House. "At the cud of tho second month 1 received a lotter from my wife's uncle, asking mo lo return to Brooklyn, as ho : thought I could do better there. We rc turned on thc 28th of last month, and I found that my wile's uncle wanted mo to go and see a well known Baptist clergy man, whom ho thought would befriend mo. I went to seo the reven u 1 gentle man, and, alter he heard my story, he asked nu? if J wouldn't like to join the Baptist Church. I did not answer this question for some time, until, in fact, 1 thought it over thoroughly. In tho I meantime, l mingled with Baptist peo 1 plo and went to their meetings, and tho consequence is that I am now studying for tho Baptist ministry and expect to 1)0 ordained some time in January, OL course my plans arc not loilnito os yet, and I have no special church in view, but if I am accepted and ordained 1 will go wherever the ConfcronCO decides to send ; mo.

Thc Hight of tht; inst express on the Penn sylvania railway is a marked example of thc possibilities in tho way of sustaining . high rates of speed. This mad now runs the fastest train in America. Nine hun dred and twelve miles, including sovou stops, are accomplished in 25J hours, and tho average time is 36.30 miles an hour. A portion of tho distance is run at the rat? <d 7,"> miles an hour. At a speed of 60 miles an hour tho driving wheels of the locomotivo on this train make 2,">H} revolutions a minute. Wm.

Thirty-one years ago Colonel MeiggS read a paper bef?t e (JIO.

This is part of the future-tho railroad from point to point with a mathematical lino; tho rails ten times stronger than ar?; now used; the loeomotiveu on wheels of far greater diameter; the gauge of n relative breadth; thc signals and times perfectly settled; tho roads on both sides during tho transit of trains having thu gate of tho walls all closed-then instead of traveling 100 miles an hour, wo shall mon; safely travel 800 milos un hour." One of the latest eflbits at improve ment in locomotives is that of a French man named Estrade, who has construct ed an ongino which lie calls La Parisi enne.
