" The polit- cal pimp and prostitute from Nemaba county is out with his mud battery and firo-i a volley at thu head of the editor of this paper because ho declined to bo cajoled or threatened into supporting that notorious jobber , and legislative blackmailer for the congressional nomi nation in the First district. According to Church llowo , the editor of the Bin ; is not fit to live and is in no condition to die. Wo cannot reciprocate in terms. llowo Is not only in condition to die , but ripe for burial. Ilia political obsequies will bo largely attended by a thankful public before the idfla of November. i'iNC is out of jail and once moro upon his native hcatli. AI < > dina , the Mex ican whom ho had libeled , having waived his right to a civil unit for damages , thu court hold that the proceedings were thereby ended , and Cutting was given hU freedom. An imprisonment of two months having apparently moderated Ills temper , ho accepted the decree , but not without a little show of bravado in ask ing n ropy of the decree "for future use. " This , of coursu , has reference to ; i de mand for indemnity. Cutting after re gaining liberty , wont with a number of Americans , including Consul Urigham , to the Casino , whore his demonstrations nearly got him into further trouble. Uolng regarded as an agitator and a dangerous - gorous character , ho will not be permitted to romuiii on Mexican soil. CONSUL IlitioiiAM Is evidently well ) > lon > .cil witli the notoriety ho has ob tained from the Cutting all'air , and is ap parently not unwilling to increase it.with very little regard for methods. It will occur to most people that It was neither lu the line of his duty nor consistent witii the dignity of his ofllco to parade around with Culling after his release and make himself a party in a public report to a wrnnglo between Mexico oillcials and a crowd of Americans , why may not bo en tirely roprcaontativo in their character. It is not understood ihal there was any * domatul upon the pnrsonal services of the consul to escort Cutting bafely out of Mexican territory and having per formed all that was required of him in Ids oDicial capacity the obviously proper course for Mr , Hngham was to have kept aloof from Cutting and not to havn personally identified him&olf 'with ' him in any way. His having pur sued a different course might very justly bo regarded by the Mexican authorities an nti intentional affront. The state do- partni'.nt professes to have entire couli- dniicu in Consul Urigham'fi intclliguncu and discretion , but in tide , as in most plhcr matters , tlio views of the depart- mentnre not shared by the Weil-informed public. An llmiost Mtm AVIM Win. The succcn of republicans In the First dl&trlnl depends upon thoelmrnotorof the candidate whom they nominate to repre sent the parly In the coining congres sional canvass. Other things being equal the countie- ) composing that district have ii safe anil largo republican majority. Whatever tlio popularity of the demo cratic nominee : m honest republican of clean record and average ability can bo icasouably certain of an election. The HEI : will cordially support such n choleo of : i republican convention. It Itni no other plans and no other wish than lo fceo n clean , hon est ami Mroug republican nominated at the coming convention. It has cu- tenul into no bai gains and made it.sr > lf a party to no scheme looking to any other end. Us iullncnco and its voice are at the disposal of the republicans of thu First district for thli purpose. Unlit will not assist in furthering the schemes of the most disreputable , the most dlihonusl and the most shameless political cormorant in Nebraska. It warns good republican * that llio nomina tion of i'hureh llowo will bo u danger ous ami fatal experiment , No voter , ir respective of parly , can nll'ord to set the peal of popular endorse ment on ; v man whoso record is black with political iniqultv. blained with broken pledges , dyed with bribes mul reeking with the stench of long yearn of corruption. The brawn uudanUy of this scoundrel in daring to enter into a contest for national honors when his name is u bye- word and reproach among decent men everywhere in his own .state Is so amaz ing aa almost to reach the holght of the sublime. With a full knowledge of his position in tlm estimation of the public ho is scheming to corrupt the primaries , cap ture the county conventions and foist himself as a candidate upon the republi cans of the First ttlslriot. Jt will he a criminal mistake if llio parly permits itself to bo led to Inevitable defeat by thai tricky schemer who has du.iortud U timu ami again to proatilutu himself lo Its enemies , and whoso record as a professional corruptlonisl and leg- Islatlvo blackmailer stamps him as the im t dangerous and disreputable politi cal mountebank in the slate. Dilemma. Governor Hill , of Now York , is un doubtedly in a moro perplexing and anxious situation at this timu than any other aspiring politician in the nation. The troubles that harrass the governor proceed from the disclosures in the case of Squires , the commissioner of public works of New York city , who was re moved from ollico by Mayor Grace nnd is now under indictment charged with crimes hardly less scandalous than those which scut Tweed to a felon's cell. The action of the mayor in removing Squires requires to bo confirmed by tlio gov ernor , anil this is the hard nut which Mr. Hill is now trying to find a way to crack without smashing his lingers. The dan ger that confronts the governor is that the political odilico that ho had so care fully constructed , with Squires , Flynn andO'llrieu as its pillars , threatens to tumble to uiocos and bury him iu tlio ruins , and how to escape the seemingly inevitable disaster is the very serious question that troubles him. There is not n shadow of doubt respecting the guilt of Squires. All the circumstantial evidence and the confession contained in his letter to Flynn arc conclusive of that. Thcro is also very little ground of doubt that O'Urien is Ueoply involved , though the disclosures as to mm wore not so definite and direct tx to warrant his in- dictmont. Flynn will receive his punish ment at the hands of the couvts , but not being in office his ease is of only inci dental interest to the governor as all'cct- ing his political inlluonee. There is a ge.ncrivl demand from the democratic press of New York that the removal of Squires shall bo confirmed , and these papers call upon O'Brien to resign the chairmanship of the democratic state committee , a position lie owes to the favor of Governor Hill. Now it is evident that to confirm the removal of Squire1 ; would bo an acknowl edgment on the part of the governor of his belief in the guilt of this trio of poli ticians who have been the most favored recipients of his high consideration , nnd upon whom ho has in a very largo meas ure rested his hopes for the future. Only a few days ago wo quoted from the New York World the statement that "tho friends of Governor Hill control the party organisation com pletely"ami among the most faithful of those friends aio the throe men whoso otlicial rascalities have boon exposed. The present party organization in New York is the work of Mr. Hill &vl no- placed O'lirlen ' at its head as his repre sentative. In many ways the governor has strengthened the hands of lun chief henchman and thereby helped the other two who were associated with him in managing the machine and pocketing the spoils. How heavily this mat lor weighs iinon the governor may bo seen in the fact that with the most convincing evidence before him of llio guilt of Squires ho has been deliberating on the question of confirming his removal for nearly two weeks , hearing daily the calls of the democratic press upon him to do his duty , ami knowing that every honest citl/.ea expects him lo place his condem nation upon Squires. Hut ho still iiesi- tatcs.and it is beginning to bo feared .hat ho will find some way to avoid the disa greeable duty at least until after thn fall election , and perhaps altogether , u.low- ing the indicted olliclal to remain in ollico ptnullug tlui determination of his case in the courts. The situation shows how strongly the ring is intrenched , and how ( irmly Gov ernor Hill is bound uu with It. That ho is making a very grave mlstako in ids present course ought to bo apparent to him , Ho ought to sco that ho cannot without the risk of disaster to his politi cal hopes defy the honest and decent pub lic sentiment of Now York. If ho cannot - not in all respects emulate thn example of Mr , Tildcn In dealing with the Tweed ring , for the reason that , unlikeMr. . Til dcn , he is himself a ringstcr , ho ought to bo able to go far enough in the only di rection which he can properly pursue to demonstrate Ihal ho will nouhield or con done rascal.I ) * , oven when committed by hits mot > t favored linnolur.on. A givat many people ftcl a Tory deep interest in the action Governor Hill shall take in this matter , nnd vrobably none more than the gentleman who is renting nnd Hailing in the Adjromlacks. THAT bill to make gambling a felony , whiph Church Howe introduced in the last legislature and afterwards killed when the collection taken up by the sportlnp fraternity warranted the mur der , will haunt the legislative black mailer from thn hanks of the Neinaha for ninny years to come. _ lintCHt The Insidious character of Russian diplomacy received another striking illus tration In the deposition of Alexander I. , Prince of Bulgaria , consummated on last Saturday. This latest mow in the com plex and somewhat mysterious came that IJussia Is playing possessed all the char acteristics of a eon.ipiniey , but while Us eflVct upon some of the Kuropean courts was .startling , the fact that no such Im pression was apparent at Vienna or Ber lin warrants the belief that the aHiemo was wtill understood there and acquiesced in. So far a * as tlio people of Bulgaria arn concerned , It soeins not to have been regarded by them with any dissatisfac tion. There was no popular disturbance , bul on llui contrary the people accepted the .situation with an apparent feeling ot relii'f , and the dispalohes represent that they rejoice at llio event as ending an in tolerable situation , whllo anticipating the to ) < t uxsuits from Kusdiau domination in the probable union of Bulgaria and Kastwn Uoumella , which the people have eagerly desired since the division and autonomy of the furmor was established by the trinity of Berlin In 1878. It i.s not onsy to forecast what may bo the political consequences of tills action of Russia , although Ihero is n wide range of possibilities in connection with it. Tlio force of th'i ' blow tails upon Turkey , to which Bulgarl- : was n tributary principal ity under thi : suzerainty of the sultan , and the cour > e of that power in relation to the mattni * will have n great deal to do with determining future ovouts. It is also a menace ! , indirectly at least , to Kug- land's ' inlluencc in the East , although public expression in Knulnnd professes to regard it as nn event in which that nation has hs3 ; interest than any other. The one evident faet is that it is an extension of Russian power , and In a direction that bodes no gooil to Turkey , while it appears evident that it was accomplished with the previous knowledge and concurrence of Germany and Austria as the price of maintaining the triple alliance , The Business Situation. Whatever the conditions elsewhere , Hie condition of trade in Omaha shows a gratifying and steady advance. Last week's clearingsplaco us eleventh in the list of commercial centers. Business shows gradually increasing activity at leading business centers throughout the country. The recent gain in b'ltik clear ings and railroad earnings and tha ad vance in interest rates for money are tin- nmlablo evidences of the revival of con- fidcncn and growth of enterprise in commercial circles. The improvement is but slight in some departments , but it is apparent to some extent in nearly every branch of business. Ono of the moro encouraging features of the situa tion is the renewal of something like o'd limo activity in the ex port trade in wheat. The legiti mate trade in this cereal is bettor than it has been for some years past , and its effect upon the country's exports is llkolj- to bo supplemented shortly by 'larger shipments of now cotton , which will soon be. in sullicicnt supply to admit of in creasing foreign sales. Tlio distribution of all kinds of merchandise to interior points is steadily enlarging in volume , and there is a hopeful and cheerful fool ing as to business prospects in all parts of the country. Cotton and wool remain dull. Manufactures of wool arc fairly active , and mills generally are well employed on orders. Cotton goods stocks continue under good control , as deliveries on baclc orders and a steady new demand arc taking up the bulk of production of loading mills. Tlio general outlook for business in the dry-goods market contin ues satisfactory. Jobbers at all points nro gottinc larcror and more frequent orders. The price of wheat in the seaboard market is 1 } to 8 cents per bushel higher than it was a weolc ago , and better lig- uros have been recorded in the interval ; but in the Chicago market the net ad vance for the week is only J of a cent per mishol. The rise in price is the reside of sustained activity in the export demand All cable reports indicate n decided shortage in the out-turn of European crops and an increase in imnort require ments during the year that is variously estimated at 75,000,000to 100,000,000 bush els. English and continental markets have sharply advanced on unfavorable harvest conditions and a good homo demand , and large purchases have bciin made in the west and at Atlantic ports for immediate and future shipment1. ; . By far the larger share of these o.\port sales have been made to French buyers , who seem to bo disposed to make good tlio deficiency in their homo supply by immediate purchases in advance of requirements. The strong foreign demand has imparted a very firm feeling to all domestic markets , which has hardly reflected in the moderate ad vance in prices that haa occurred tins week. The extraordinary legitimate de mand now apparent would ordinarily have set the speculative- market wild with excitement , but Us effect has been measurably counteracted by the Iniluonco of leading Chicago operators who are heavily interested on the fchort side of tlio market. Between the opposing interests tiia country has profited by a healthful ex pansion of Its export trade , which might have been seriously crippled if the specu lative market had taken its usual course fu the presence of an activa foioign de mand. Tlio diversion of attention to wheat has dwarfed the dealings in corn tocomparntivo insignificance in all grain conters. Prices are 1 cent lower hero in the west , whe.ro the rains in the corn belt have induced a moro bearish feeling in spoeubtivn circles ; but the eastern mar kets RonUnua ( inn under light slocks of merchantable corn and a good demand for homo consumption , Export demand for corn ia light. Hoc ; products arn moving fairly for export , but the liomo distribution is less active. TJIK proclamation of Mayor Boyd , culling for a general conation of business in Omaha during the hour of Mr , E/ra Milhifd'a funeral , wan a graceful and lilting recognition on the part of the city government of the high character and generous life work of a man who had done much for Omaha.

In llu-M ) days of srenornl .suspicion , of breaches of public tmd'prlvnte ' trust , of an intenseeominercjal competition which too often places shrewdness and success , however attained , above simple honesty and honest niaullne. * ? , it is emin ently fitting that n whole city should be called to witness the fuel Hint respect for the coed old fashioned virtues , which made the "God's noblemen " of history , is not yet extinct , or that the class which evokes that respect Is not yd gone out of existence. _ i llio brewers" was Church Ilowu'.s fiivonlo side tap nt legislative sessions.

' ' This is distinctly tho'j-'ra ' f the amateur. In till branches of literature and the arts , llio amateurs , by merci Joreo of numbers , nro crowding the proftiMiouals , The do- volion of the average 'Voulig woman lo various polilo aecoinplshJlenls | | is no now lliingi but whereas f jlien. , grandmother wrote nice letters to lior ftlcnds and her own journal without thought of publica tion , and embroidered hor''ciisiions ! and made her water-color jlrawings for the decoration of her nrivajo apartments , the young woman of to-day makes these fu tile ellbrts a serious matter of business. In painting pictures , plaques and panels , decorating china , hammering brass , writing novels and plays , and especially in aetintr , tlio young lady amateur is all- provadmsr. ft is 011)3' ) ° " the stngo that blio has Miado much pecuniary success , the charms of her BOX having a direct value there ; hut she does not hesitate to claim all lor sex's privileges and exemp tions in other iields us well , and in her sulilimo self-satisfaction sails happily along on troublous sous from which a man would shrink. ThoA'tut nu moor of amateur writers by whom editors and publishers arc con tinually assailed lias lately become a subject of wondering commeut. Theeu aspirants nro not nil women. The man amateur , indeed , Is n much moro opin ionated and loss traellblo animal Mian the woman , but he Is. happily , less num erous. This is probably because a man w ho can read and write can u ually llnd i-mploymout as n car conductor or in seine other honorable calling , while fern n woman there is no Hold open but plain sowing or literature. The former requires - quires an education Mint but tew women nowadays i'o * e s , nnd she accordingly takes to literature in prelereiice. And this in the face of the fact that has been pointed out again and ngniu , that there if no industry inhich over-production is moro marked than in that which has been nptlv called the making of maim- tcript. I'rofe.ssionnls Inirdlv do moro than mnko n Jiving nt it , and the most that thu amateurs can accomplish is to bring down the standard of prices , just as they hnvo done in many branches of art , without any teal advantage to them selves. .So much of the cheaper work as they may divide will possibly vluld them the wages of n housemaid , but it will fccaroolj gain them as much credit. And yet Micro never was n time when the good nnd thorough woric of trained piofo.ssionai writers was. more In request than It Is now. The rewards of whiit wo call genius have always been unccttalit ; they me sometimes largo nnd sometimes small , and there can "be no rule for the compensation tor great works of litera ture anymore Mian for their composition. But in what wo may call applied litera ture for tlio work of mngaT'.incs and newspapers bears somewhat the relation to belle lettres thntindustrlal art bears to Hue arts-wo do not linil nmnj trained journeymen or master workmen unom- ployed. This is why the work of tun haste to bo entrusted to nppruuticos , who nro not competent , but who at least have some serious concentration of purpose mid the power of ready mlabtability that makes ovun tholr imporfoet literary equipment moro readily available Mum the ? elf-cons.oions olVorts of the amntuur. There is abundant room in this business tor those who prepare themselves to fol low it seriously , but it is n poor trade to take up as a diversion. A. New Dopnrturo In Politics. JVnr Ynih fiimiiicrrffil * \ < lterttfr. Our Washington correspondent reports that Senator Van WyckVs singular appeal to the. voters of Nebraska for ro-olectlon to the senate is attracting much attention at the capital , as indicative of a new do- pnrturo in politics that may have impor tant results. It appears that , by pro vision of the constitution of the state of Nebraska , the United Stales senators are elected , or supposed to bo , by the popular voto. This provision , wlueh was in serted in the state constitution to servo as a bulwark a.gaitibt possible manipulation of the legislature , has never been called into play until now , but Van Wyek in tends it shall bo given a practical trial next fall. It will be inter esting to see how the experiment turns out. Senator Van Wyek challenges one and all who aspire to his scat lo meet him on the stump and present their claims. Wo suspect that few will care to pick up the glove , for Mr. Van Wyek is a wonderfully good speaker , resembling one. of his local blizzards in Mic volume and lorco of his oratory. The grounds on which ho justifies his novel eourso are also such us will commend him to tlio horny handed masses. There is a growing jealousy of corporate in- Ihiunce in the senate , so that the shrewd Van Wyek leads with a trump card when he proclaims to Mm voters that ho must look , to them to protect him nnd them selves together against the machinations of monopoly , which i.s planning * to cap ture the state legislature in order to send to Washington a senator who will bo Us hired agent. _ New York Politicians at Saratoga. Charles Dudley Warner , in Harper's Maga/.iuo for September : There is a cer tain sort of life whether it is worth see ing is a question that we can sco no- wheroolso , and for an hour Mr. Glow and King and Forbes , sipping their raspberry shrub in a retired corner of a bar-room , were interested snectators of tlio scene. Through the padded swinging doors en tered , as in a play , character after character. Each actor as ho entered stopped for a moment and stared about him , and in this act revealed his character his conceit , his slyness , his bravado , his self-importance. There was great variety , but practically otic prevailing type , and that the Now York politician. Most of them were from the city , though the country politician apes tlio city poli tician as much as possible , but bo lacks the exact air. notwith standing the black broadcloth and the white hat. The city men are of two varieties the smart , norky- nosed vulgar youmi ward workor.and the heavy-featured , gross , fat ojd fellow. Ono after another they glide in , with an always conscious air , swagger oil'to the bar , strike attitudes in groups , one with his legs snread , another with a foot be hind or. tiptoe , another leaning against the counter , and so nose , and uriuk "My respects" all rather solemn and still' , impressed perhaps by the dccoroiisiiuhs of the place , and conscious of their good clothes. Kutcr together three stout men , a yard across the shoulders , each with aii enormous development in front , waddle up to the bar , attempt to form a trian gular group for conversation , but find themselves too far apart lo talk in that position , and so arrange themselves side by side a most distinguished-look- in" party , like a portion of a swell-front street in Boston. To them swaggers up a yonng.sport , like onu ' in Irish Sketchbook of Thackeray's ligures the book short , in white hat , poor face , im pudent manners , poses before the swell fronts and tosses off his glass. About a little table In one corner are three ex cessively "ugly inuirs , " leering at each other and pouring down champagne. These men are all dressed as nearly like gentlemen as the tailor can make them , but even ho cannot change their hard , brutal faces. It is not tlinir fault that inoiioy and clothes do not make a gentle man ; they are well fod.vnlgarly prosper ous , and if you inquire you will llnd that their women are in silks and luces. This is a gooil place to study the rulers of Now York ; and impressive ) as they are m appear ance , it is a relief to know that they un bend to each other , and hall one another as "Billy" and "Tommy. " Do they not ape what is most prosperous ami suc cessful in American lifur There ia ono who in make-up , form , and air , even to the cut of liia Biiio-whibkors- an exact counterpart of the great railway king. Here is a heavy-faced young gentleman in evening dross , perhaps endeavoring lo act the part of a gentleman , who lius como from an evening party unfortun ately a little "slowed. " but who deus not know how to sustain the character , for presently ho becomes very familiar and conliihiiitial with the dignified colored - ored waiter at the bullet , who requires all his native politeness to maintain thn character of a gentleman for two. If these men had millions , could they get any moro enjoyment out of life ? To iiavo line clothes , drink champagne uud pose in a fashionable bar-room in the height of the season is not this tlio apolh costs of the "heeler" and Mm ward "worker ? " Tlio scene had a fascination for the artist , who deolarnd that he nuver tired watching the evolutions of the for eign clement into the full bloom of American citizenship , United SlatoH Docks. In the course of the rehabilitation of Mm United States navy , says Koar Admi ral Simpson in Harper'oMi'gaziuo ' , docks ami navy yards require very serious con- hidoration , for , after ships and guns , there are no requirements of more im portance for naval purposes. The ca pacity of the government yards for dock- nge is very inlgnifionnl , owing to which the bottoms of our ships are but seldom subjected to scrutiny , nnd this above all others , 13 the part of llio integrity of which wo need to bo most assured. The few docks that we have are generally ap proprlatcd by vessels under repair , nnd the cruising ship Is debarred the use of this means of guarding her safety nnd providing for her speed. A very slight accident may uMurb llio copper on llio bottom of a wooden ship , which may result in serloii.s consequences if she bo sent lo crul e in waters where she will be exposed to the inllucnee of llio leroilo , and the norfh'cl to clean the bottom when loaded with gin-s or barnacles might so impair ' peed us 11 malic thedlrt'crenci'between capture and failure in a chase. Docking for such purpose * as inspecting and i leaning the liottom is the exception In our practice , as thn demands of repairs arc considered paramount. A ship ( n which the repair * approach or lie lielow the water line mu.st be placed In a dock , and months Icing otten requlrdd to complete- the unrl. , the dok is closed to all other purj pose.s , and our ships are frequently sriii Immune navy yard lo another to lake advantage of a dock that may be vacant. The embarrassments that have at tended this course in the past , while our fleet lias consisted of copper-shonthcd \\ooden ships , will bo Increased by llto introduction of iron and steel hulls , which demand much moro care and moro frequent removals of such hlnderanco- speed a- > will attach themselves to their bottoms. Tim government has at present but three stone dry-docks and ono lloaling dock. The latter is in Use at Portsmouth , New Hampshire ; the stone tloeks are at the navy yards In Boston , Now York and Norfolk. A sloim dock Is in process of construc tion at Mare Island , California ; this i.s of dimensions capable of receiving ships of thi ) first class. Its length is OliO feut ; breadth , 7 ! ) feel , depth of water over the slll.ST.U feet- , and it will admit a ship ofllii ) feet in length. When completed it will supply n great want on the I'ncilio coast. It requires no argument to show that tlio "ovcrnnitmt needs an increase in ils facilities for dockage ; the necessity of a plentiful supply of docks is recognized by all powers , anil we cannot pretend to bo blind to our own delioiency This is a want that must be provided for , but it is well to .study all points that bear on the subject , ami to mature some plan of operations before wo embark in work which involves great expense , and the success of which must depend on the thoroughness with which all the factors are considered beforehand. ARISTOCRATIC BRUISERS. Tilled Gentlemen of KuglnmlVlio Woi-o-Kontl of Street rights. Tha Into marquis of Waterford , among numerous accomplishments , excelled ns n boxer , and of his aptitude in this art he was justly proud , says the Pall Mall Ga/etto. llo never picked his men : ho used to light conlhc.nvu.rs. dustmen , hod men , fellowship porters , and others of that ilk. and then gave thorn a Dank of England plnister , nnd If ho ever was caught napping and mot a superior bruiser , great was his .superior's reward. But sometimes an insolent jarvcy ob tained nil the thrashing and no reward , ns the following nnccdotc will show : The marquis on ono occasion hailed n , cab rather early in the morning , and directed the cabman to drive him to St. James's square , the residence of Ids uncle , tlio arch-bishop of Armagh. When he arrived at his destination ho handed the cabman half a sovereign , but cabby , In the most insolent manner , demanded more. "All right. " said the mnrquisand , , slipping in the house by the means of a latch key , ho quickly donned his uncle's episcopal robes , and. returning to tiic door , quietly asked what tlio cabman re quired. The jarvcy , not recognizing ihe marquis , and tlfnikinp : to frighten the clerical swell , gave nim some choice Billingsgate , whereupon his lordship in his now character knocked cabby down. Amused at the idea of having to light with a parson , cabby sprang up nnd wont for hi. * ! man in good style ; but the sham prolalo foiled eyory blow and returned turned his deliveries with such vigor that at last tlio cabman , thoroughly beaten , and believing that ho had the devil in lawn sleeves for an opponent , jumped up on his cab and was glad to "hook ft. " The prince of Chatclhcraiilt is a bruiser of the Waterford stamp. Over and over again in the old days ol Haymarkot roys- toring ho has bosii known to throw oft' his coat and go for his man in true pugil istic fashion , and many talcs are told of his grace's excellence in tlio art. With the exception , however , of ono or two members of the upper house , wo thought boxing an accomplishment long forcolten by tlio peerage , hut this follow ing anecdote will show otherwise : A low days ago n noblu carl , an apt pupil of a West Kud professor of boxing , had been dining rather freely nt ono of the. clubs , nnd as ho passed along the Strand in evening dress ho came in collision with a R.vccp just emerging from Drury e.ourt , who , to steady himself placed his sooty hands on his lordship's irreproach able white shirt front. To hit out at the swoop was thu nobleman's lirst impulse , and , landing on ehummy's nasal organ , the carmine and black were soon ming ling. Nothing daunted , the sweep pulled himself together and tried all he know lo got on terms , but in n dhort time ho was so battered and bruised that his pals from the "Lane , " who had now mustered strongly , came tip , and it was n case ot ono down and the other come on. Stimu lated , no doubt , by the boltln or two of porter he had imbibed , hi.s lordship knocked the pride of Drury lane down ono nfUirtho olhor like nine-pins , calmly asking , Jiko Fil/jnmes of Itoderlck Dim's ' band , for one and nil to como on. Wi- do.i't know how it might have fnrcd with my lord had not a policeman arrived on the scone " .ml dispersed the threatening crowd , while his lordship , fooling that ho had earned n drink , sauntered into a tavern close at hand and partook of a modest quencher.
