THK great Italian naval steamer I talis, the largest iron-clad war vessel in the world, is on her way to this country for what purpose ia not known. MAIJT arrests HARE been made in Germany lately of persons suspected of being connected with a conspiracy to betray the secrets relative to the Ger Mian military organization o the ene mies of that country. HAD A cyclone swept ever ihe great "American bottom" of Illinois, or had a wave of tljme swept over it, greater devastation could hardly have been the result than that caused by the destruc tive flood that now covers that fertile region. The losses are estimated at million* of dollars, and many people have been utterly imiwivc-i-hed. EGYPT, SO receutly aiH.ctc with war, is now the victim of cholera in its most virulent form, and it is spreading rap idly. There ie danger that the fleeing refugee" who crowd all the outgoing steamers will carry the pestilence into Asia and Europe, and that to all the other calamities of this disastrous year will be added a world-wide prevalence of the cholera. IF the merchants of St. Louis intend to secure the Mexican trade, they had better keep their eyes open and act aaickly. The Mexican government seems to be trying to establish direct relations between Philadelpnia and Vera Cruz, and in order to further the project, by more efficient direction, the Mexican consul at Pniladelphia is made the equal of the consul general in New York. If the Mexican trade does slip away out of the hands of St. Louis men they will have only themselves to blame for it. The early bird proverb applies iu trade as well a* in natural history. GOVERNOR BCTI.ER takes as much de light making his enemies uncomfor table as a'^y other man in public life, After the Harvard College Trustee* had agreed not to confer the degree of LL. D. upon the General, a compli ment that it has usually bestowed upon the Governors of Massachusetts, he felt more anxious than ever to attend its Commencement exercise 1 Wednesday, and was present in all his glory. The report is that Senator Hoar refused to sit at the dinner-table with Butler, which, if true, would make the valiant Governor enjoy the meal all the more. In that case the Governor showed more sense than n t'"" s vi r. Secretayy DrartTK Secreta^v." Fielinfjbwyeen's endeavors, Uvrit ^couTi5*t.'bH Utile pros nerta peace between Chili aud Peru. Heiyr^f Elmore, Peruvian minister at W^Liiington, says thai late advices con firm «he report that no treaty hae ye» Ceen signed. Chili, he says, doea no1 want peace, but on the contrary is glad of any pretext to continue tne occupa tion of Peru. To this end she is tryiti,? to set up Iglesias, in the hope of setting the Peruvians at loggerheads amonjt themselves. Animated by the sam desire, bhe is seeking to make an ar rangement with Brazil and the Argen tine Republic, which will prevent these two governments from interfering with her pl&nB. The Peruvians are still firm in their recognition of the C-jlderon and Mentero government—Frelinghuysen's proposition, E more thinks, would have been acceptable to Peru, but Chili would none of it. He has faith, how. ever, that the good offices of the United States, combined with the force of pub lic opinion, will finally be bticcessful. RKPOKIH of fresh disasters keep coming from the regions of the Missis sippi deluge. Oa Sunday night the St. Mary's levee broke, and 20,000 acres of wheat in this bottom alone are said to be under water. Other levees axe breaking in various places. Thousands of acres are covered to depth of from ten to twenty feet, and thousands of families have been rendered desti tute and forced to flee for their lives. Hopes are entertained that the Hoods will aiion bejjin to subsido, but as yet there seem to be few indications of it —indeed, in many places, the water is still rising. Already there is great suf fering among the poorer classes, and appeals for aid are being sent out. Ihe resultant poverty and destitution that will be left as th* legacy of the deluge is sad to contemplate and charitable ':itizeas, who responded so generously to the appeals for the aid of the Rhine suuerers last winter, will now have a nearer and more uifcent duty to per form. The losses range from a hun dred to thousands of dollars and un fortunately, it i3 those whose losses are only hundreds who, ill Ihe majority of cases, lose the most. NEWS SUMMARY.

Mr. Cooper wx$ always a careful aud prudent business man. He was always opposed to the methods of many mer chants who launched out in xtrava gaut enterprises on borrowed money, lor which they paid exorbitant rates of interest. Once, while talking about pn ject with an acquaintance, the lat ter said he would Have to borrow the money for six months, paying interest at three per cent per month. Why do you borrow for so short u lime?" Mr. Cooper asked. Because the bro kers will not negotiate bills for longer." Well, il you wish," said Mr. Cooler, "I will discount your note at that rate for three years." "Are you in earnest?" a*kcd the would-be borrower. Cer tainly I am. I will discount your note for $10 000 for three years at that »ate." "Will you do it?" "Of course I will," said the merchant. Very well," said Mr. Cooper "just sign this note for tKMHX), payable in three yeara and give me your check for $SU0, and the transaction is complete." "But where is the money for me'! asked the astonished merchant. "You don't get any money," was the reply. Your interest for thirty-six months, at three per centum per month, amounts to 108 per centum, or $10,800 therefore your check for $800 makes us even." ^The force of this practical illustration of the folly of paying Much an exorbitant price for the use of money waastich that the merchant determined never to borrow at such ruinous rates, and he frequent ly used to say that nothing could have su fully convinced him as this rather humorous proposal by Mr. CoofMHT.

As iias oftenJbeen said ip this depart ment, success Mepcnds ly upon our knowledge of the tlie bee and the adaptation i|^^Lanag« ment of apiary accordingly .^BBfcV ould s u y e e e s y o i i i w read of them, and strive to odv..uce ill* science of bec-culture. A very acute and painstaking apiarist, Mr. G. Bf. Doolittle, of N. Y., givn ussomevejy interesting ov«ervations in an article below, which we ake from the Ameri can Bee Journal and which wiii be ot great importance to all beekeepers: The above heading may bi thought by some to be of little interest, but aa it han much to do with the surplua honey we get, I thought a few words on the subject would r.ot be amiss. Many seem to suppose that the flee ia capable oi going to the liel 1 to gather honey as soon as hatched, or in three or four days at least, but some fac!w proves that they do not do so. Bees may be forced to go to the fields for pollen anil honey at the age of o or days old, but when the colony is in a normal condition, as it always should be to store hone to the best a-van tage, tbe bee i« 10 days old before il gathers honey. If we take comlw of bees just hatching, and place them inft hive witheut any i»ees, as is frequently dotie to introduce a valuablequ-en, we will see young bees not over or odaya |ild go to the lields, being compelled to do so for water, pollen, etc., because there is none of older age to go but tins does not prove the bees of that age usually do so any more than the experi ment of feeding 2.) pounds of honey to bee* confined to the hive before one pound of wax was produced, proves that it always takes -0 pounds of honey to produce one pound of comb. 1 have conducted two experiment since I kept been, to ascertain the age at which beea gather the first honey, and as each proved the same, I believe 16 days to be t'-.-.e time when the bees brines her first load of honey, when «he colony is in a uor^»«l condition., The experiment which I tried was this: A black queen was removed from a colony, and an Italian queen introduced in her place about the mid dle of June. The date was marked on the hive, and as the 'J 1st day there after arrived, a careful watch was kept to nee when tne lir*t Italian bee hatched. When the first Italian had emerged from the cell, a careful watch was again kept of the hive to see when the first Italian took its (light. Tnis happened about 2 p. m., on the eighth day after the first Italian was found hatched, when a few came out for a play spell, but in an hour all had re turned, and none but black bees were seen going to and from the hive. As the days passed on th- numbers in creased at each play spell (*imut o'clock), but none having the Italian markings were seen, except at these play spells, till the 10:h day after the first Italian hatched. At ttiid time a few came in with pollen and honey, commencing to work at about 10 a. m. After this, the number of Italian honey gatherers increased while the number of blacks decreased, unul on ihe 45th day after the last black bee liaicbtil, wiieu nut a black bee wim to be found in or about the hive. If the above is correct, and I believe it is, it will be seen that the eggs, for our honey gatherers, must* be iaid by the queen '67 days before our main honey narvest, if we would get the beat re sults from our bees AS it tak'.s l!l days from tne time the eggs is laid to the time the bee emerges from the cell, and this i*i.ded ,ta the b: 0 37 days. The aboYe & any portion of the country, a certain il ra produces the larger por tion of the honey crop. To be sur^ the beea from the time they are three days old, help to perform tbe labors in tbe hive, such aa budding comb, feed ing the larvte, evaporating nectar, etc., hence are of much value toward secur ing the crop of honey, if we have plenty of bees besides, over 1 daya old, but otherwise all hatching aftor the middle of the honey harvest are Of little use. Another thing I ascertained by these experiments, which was that the beea which gather the honey are not the .mes which deposit it in the cells. I was reading in a bee paper, not loug ago, hosv the loaded bees from the fields carried their honey easily to tQe top of a four-itory hive. This waa used as au argument iu favor of plao ing the empty jmbs on top of the lull ones, instead of raising un thei-eo» ond or third story and placing them between full combs, on the tiering-up plan. As far as the loaded bees are concerned, it makes no difference, aa will be seen when I at&te that on th« fifteenth day after the first Italian hatched, when nono but black beta wrr. going iu and out at the entrance, I found by taking otl the cover aiie examining 'he n^t'ona that scarce a black bee wa* in them, rnt all wece Italians', which were at work there, building comb and depositing honey. After this 1 used an obstrvatory hive containing but one comb. In this a I also hail black bees aa field bees, and young Italians for the inaide work. By watching the entrance through the glass, I could see the loaded bees come in, and when one came on the ncxl side to me I could eauily nee what it did with the load of honey. The bet would pass along on the comb till it came to a yt-uug bee, when it would put out tongu-j toward the young bee. bee had no load it would tj honey, but if it had our field b€ try again till one was found that could take the load, when it was given up to it. The field bee then rested a liul^ while, when it would go for another load. Thus it will be »'ee« that any en trance leading cUp?cri6 the surplus ar rangement, as 'was formerly made in the Langstroth ktve, is of no use, unl, on the contrary, positive daniavje, aa in cool nights it vause- the bees to let I.a iliej un 1 f«icVly girli r«q hoiii'Jjjont jmulant, will I' Bittern btf-f •. I. re the boxes, from flowing too much c, WT air to enter thenf. To "aecure the bfa results it is nej:f sjary to be fcillv quainted with n/ ,,f these minor poirjta of interest abouy th* bees, BO that may combine th|. n all and bring vJ all to bear on Xat which will pri/,lr.uce us the nu*t irjfiey.
