Reports have been received from time to time by UieUnltd States naval officers in the China waters, as well as by Gen. Kikkmas, U. S. Consul at Chlng Kiang, which stated, vaguely at first, that some few American citi zens belonging to the General Sher man were still held by the Coreans, the responsibility of their detention being made to oscillate between the Chinese and Japanese. Other accounts assert ed that all the crew and passengers were dead, and that their bodies were buried, but may be recovered. The Shenandoah will be employed lv clear ing up the case. BWINBLKHI. "H.

NEW BOOKS. Messrs. West A Jeii.vsoN, 1008 Main Street, Richmond Vs.,have sent us tho following books, published recently by llmrn & Bsos, Now York. A Treatise on Meteorology; with Mrts-rolegiealTables. By Kllas Loom- Is, L. L. D. In C'omte'a hierarchy ofthe sciences, Heterology is reckoned among the least positive of all.aatl Indeed It hardly de serves to be called a science, being yet In its Infancy. Agassi/ said, not long •go, that ho never (retnured te make predictions concerning the weather, be cause too I'.ttle was known te enable him tedoso with any sceuraey. Nsver thelesi, It :s stated authoritatively that the late tornado and earthquake In the. West Indies were accurately predicted by a French fWanVj M. Deleter, tf we iniitske not. This would lndteate that meteorology hst asade decided and practical advances within Us brief exis tence ef some 40 years, and prevision being the test we may soon begin to claim a place for meteorology among the lets exact sciences. All that has been accumulated by the best meteor ologists has been arranged by Prof. Loonilß in good order and with a clear ness which we eomnarml most highly. The book is Intended for students, ts ncatly.pirin.ted and] illustrated copious ly with excellent plates. It Is badly ' bound. The time has come when even , school-bors may be safely trusted wilh well-bound books. Text beoks for University aiuueatsshould always have 1 the best—it need not be tlm costliest f binding. A book like this deserves a 1 beck that is aoi. ugly and that will an, 1 warp. I The Massacre of Bt. Bartholomew, by I Henry White. Tbe Huguenots, by 1 Samuel Smiles. These books aro companions. They ! difler in size and ens Is print ed on better paper than the other, but 1 both are durably and handsomely bound 1 In green and gold, and their weight, or 1 ••heft," when held In the band, remind • us ofthe best English books. The one ' describes the great struggle which eul ' m'nated in tbe tragedy et St. Bartho'o -1 mew's day, the other traces the history f of the settlements, Churches and ia i dustries Of ths Hague note In England - and Ireland, to which Is appended an - account, much too brief, especially as regards those who settled ia Virginia, ' of the Huguenots in A merles. Both • books arc well, and, so far as we have • been sb.e to eratnlne them, fairly writ- I ten. The authors ars 'no 'prentice f bands, but skilled workmen in the ield I of letters. Apart from the interest ' which aUaehes to the smuggles of nas cent Protestantism, these books have j a pceut'ar worth not arone to the descen datUs of the Huguenots but to the rul ingsec'a.:o.ioftliiscot-nty,forthey show, in strong colors, what cannoi, too often ' be displayed—the wickedness and folly of pcrsecutio.i for opinion's sake. To quote from Al.-. White's preface. "Though there may be little danger - of our drifting back to -he atrocities of - the sixteenth Century, and though we •j no longer burn men, mob law and other „ forma of terrorism are strll employed to stifle free discussion, and cheek in s dividual liberty. From this to the pris f on, the rack, and the stake, the si.ep is t not se wide sa it appea-s." We wish the Uarpess would adopl r the above as the motto for their mon th I ly and weekly papers.

It Is now proved that he Is no ' r importer but lias really seen and he*rU what ke described in bis book on Et.ua torical Africa.

A French Country Fimily, By Madame Do Witt, »k« G uizot. Transla i ted by Dinah Mulock Cruik. t The author of "John Halifax, gentle y man" says, "In introducing to English ehili.rcii this charming picture of ' French family life, I think 1 am bene -1 fitting their elders too. We Britous ] are too apt to believe that French so -5 ciety is only aa modern French novels make it appear; but this book shows ■ that our neighbors across the channel 1 understand "home" as well as our f selvej." How could it be otherwise, when the - Huguenots and other French emigres ; have given to England and America so r many noble wen and pure women— j tlie peers of any men or women on - earth. We doubt whether a more pleas- I ant contribution to English literature • has been made within the century than s "A French Country Family." It is - tnstclully printed, bound and illustra ted. Sooner or Later, by Shirley Brooks. A.i unusually interesting novel—one of j the sort which you can not well put . down till you have finished. Well writ , teu and well sustained. Pity the re , ligious tone U;not better. Tin/pictures hare some merit, but are done in that dark, scratchy stylo, which is all the rage in England now and is as inex plicable as tbe British passion for sheeting bats and shaggy, bob-tailed coats. One oi the Family, by the author of Carlyon's Tear. Although tbe plot is commonplace, thts is quite a readable novel. Fairfax; en, thi: Mastkb or Grkkk wat Court, by John Esten Cooke, au thor of "Surry of Eagle's Nest," "Vir ginia Comedians," etc., is a talc ofthe Shenandoah Valley in the middle of the last century, and introduces Lord Fair fax, former owner of all the Northern Neck of Va., his factotum a Border Captain, Wngncr, and various settlers, each types of the place and period. The aim of the work is to present a picture of wild life on the border, tho supersti tions, adventurous incidents, Indian combats, passio is,habits,manners, etc.. of the period. The details of scenery, and many in the lives of the personages, are strictly true. The drauia of the book Is both humorous and tragic, and will be found, we think, superior iv in terest to Mr. Cooke's list work, which proved a signal success. i .♦■—. lO*Mr. Stamton's resignation of the War Department is said to be ready to be sent in, i nniedsßtrly upon tlie result : of the Impeachment trial—no matter I what the result may be.

Mr. William Pettltt, manager on the Roe Karm Estate, opposite Bandy' Point dn the James river, was in the early part of last week'retii*ruing homo. He was riding a fine blooded mare well known for neetness even In Virginia, the land of racehorses. I On his way:he saw a bilek-gra«.ng'in ; a field not very far from the roadside, and immediately .started in pursuit.— The chase was a most exciting one and was continued for several miles. At last the deer approached a ravine s.nd jumped across; when tlie mare (imped it immediately afterwards and antlcd en the opposite side on tlie deer's bade. Mr. Pettitt then got off Ills mart! and cut the deer's throat.

If you wish to double your crop of com, use a handful ol Poudrette to two or threo hills. Capt. John Baker, an experienced farmer of this, county, in-, forms us that he did so last year oil a, thin piece of land which never before yielded more tlwin four or live barrels to the acre, and that the experiment re sulted in a crop of fid! nine barrels per acre. We know several other farmers who have been equally successful.— Those who desire to test the value of Poudrette as a fertilizer for corn can obtain It from Messrs. Uooe& Wcdder burn, Alexandria.—Worreafon Ind&c. May 6th, '08—4t. • GREENBACKS HOT LEGAL TENDER.
