any but local offices, was active and ef

Potter has declined the chairmanship
ef the house committee on the Pacific
railroad, solely, as he states in a letter
to the speaker, because his interests in
railroads in Pennsylvania, of which
Colonel Thomas A. Scott is president.
This, he thought, would be regarded as
unfitting him for service on that com

have accepted the position. His letter
of declination was sent to the speaker,
and- will be submitted to. the house,
which alone can excuse him.
RICHARD GRANT WHITE.
He Becom3 an Idol of Clay to His Ad
mirers. Mr. Richard Grant White is accused
of seduction by a young woman in Jer
sey city, who says that five years ago,
when she was but 10 years old, she
met Mr. White, and before a year was
passed she fell a pray to his wiles.
Since then, she represents, she has liv
ed with him as his wife, and bourne
him two children, one of whom is still
living, A 3-ear ago Mr. White began
to grow cold toward her and refused
her support for herself and child. Her
first knowledge of Mr. White's being a
married man was brought her by Mrs.
White, who upbraided her for taking
Mr. White from his family. This is
all a sad story, both for the young wo
man, who is said to be a pretty, inno
cent, and friendless girl, and for Mi.
White and his family. Now, in his
55th year, Mr. White has won an en
viable fame for his masterly efforts to
ward the ultimate and elementary pur
ification of English speech. As a schol
ar and a man of gentlemanly qualities
he has ranked high. His persistant
and able writing in the endeaver to in
ject into our language the sturdy vital
ity of the old Anglo Saxon stock of
words has done much to elevate Amer
ican scholarship, This tragic disquisi
tion on the etymology of the Scarlet
Letter i3 a lameutable and disgraceful

A Last Kick.
In the first division, second corps,
we had a mule noted for his wonderful
kicking powers. In fact, he was ready
to give any one a kick upon all occa
sions. On the road to Richmond he
got his leg broken in a bridge, and was
taken out of the team and shot, and to
all appearance, was dead, when a sol
dier ran up, siezed the mule by the tail
" Now kick!"
And the mule having just one kick,
let him have it, breaking the 'soldier's
Jaw, and sent him rolling in the ditch.
The soldier never heard the last of be
ing kicked by a dead mule.
Those that require still more liberty
or larger space are Games, Houdans,
all other French breeds and Dorkings.
Here let me say of all fowls, space or
care is th; secret of health ; that is, the
les3 space the more care. When kept
with full liberty, as on a farm, little
care is required with adult fowls in
summer time; but as soon aa soon as
their liberty is curtailed, more change
of food and cleanliness must be given.
For a farm some of the best fowls for
market are the Houdans, Dorkings and
Plymouth., all large, square-bodied
birds. The two former are far-famed
for the fine flavor and delicate flesh:
they breed large, early spring chickens
when crossed wUh light Brama hen?.
X'or eggs for market, the Leghorns still
hold their own, both in quality quanti
ty and size, all three considered togeth
er. After keeping an equal number of
white and brown in a house partition
ed in the middle, wiih anm at each
end for each variety, giving them all
the same attention, the brown prov?
slightly m.re prolific than ; he whit
duriu the spring months. nni in con
stitution and hardiness the chicks of
the brown ver.i much the strongest.
The circumstances were as good as
could be with both breeds. Pullets of
each were procured from onf party,
and the cokerels from others, of the
finest strains, and the brown cam? out
A Wronjr Font Oyster.
Scene in a South Side oyster house r
A certain well known printer (whom
we shall designate as Footstick) slight
ly intoxicated, is seated at a table per
using the bill of fare.
-Footstick "I say (hie) waiter!"
Waiter (approaching quickly) "Yes,
Footstick "Gimme some oysters
(hie). Stewed oysters ; and don't be.all
night about it."
Waiter departs. In preparing the
"stew" a few clams accidently got mix
ed with the oysters; and without wait
ing to remove them (the waiter think
ing Footstick too drunk to observe the
mistake), returns and puts the dish be
fore him. A few mouthfuls are con
sumed, when the man of types cautious
ly begins feeling about the soup with
his spoon, and presently brings forth a
Footstick (wildly) "Waiter!"
Waiter (returning) "Yes, sir."
Footstick "What did I order?"
Waiter "Oyster stew, sir!" That's
so. Jes' yer look a that! (holding up
the clam). My friend, here's a wrong
font oyster or (hie) the proof lies.
Mathematics and Medicine.
Murk Twain in Atlantic for November.
.Among other talks to-day it came out
that whaleships carry no decters. The
captain adds the doctorship to his own
duties. He not only gives medicines,
but sets broken limbs after notions of
his own, or saws them off and sears
the stump when amputation seems
best. The captain is provided with a
medicine chest, with the medicines
numbered instead of named. A book
of directions goes with this. It des
cribes diseases and symtoras and says:
"Give a teaspoonful of No. 9 once an
hour," or "Give ten grains of No. 12
every half hour " etc. One of our sea
Captains came across a skipper in the
North Pacific who was in a state of
great surprise and perplexity. Said he:
"There's something rotten about this
medicine chest business. One of my
men was sick nothing much the mat
ter. I looked in the book ; it said give
him a teaspoonful of No. 15. I went
to the medicine chest and I see I was
out of No. 15. I judged I'd go to get
a combination somehow that would fill
the bill, so I hove into the fellow half a
teaspoonful of No. 8 and half a spoon
ful of No. 7, and I'll be hanged if it
didn't kill him in fifteen minutes!
There's something about this medicine
chest system that's too many for me."
Refusing a Fortune.
Who would believe it possible, says
the Paris correspondent of the Stand
ard, to find a poor man refusing a for
tune of 80.000 francs? Yet, such an
original being is now to be found in
France. His name is Auguste Eugene
Pothier, and he follows the calling of
a stableman in a hotel at Orleans.
Some months since his mother died at
Paris, and in her will, left him the sum
named, which was duly deposited by
the notary at the Caisse des Depot et
Consignation. M. Pothier was inform
ed of the fact and requested to come
and fetch his, money, but he paid no at
tention to the letter. Again he was
written to, but in vain, hj went on
smoking his pipe and cleaning his
horses wtih the utmost indifference
At length the notary, who wanted to
get the affair off his hands, took out a
summons against him. Still it was of
no avail Auguste Eugene Pothier pre
ferred to be mulcted in fine and costs
for not answering the legal mandate.
And so the matter rests at present.
It is said that the stableman on being
remonstrated w ith for his singular con
duct, replied, "I have always heard
fhat money is the root of all evil, so it
may just as well stay where it is." M.
Auguste Eugene Pothier deserves to
have a prominent place in the exhibi
tion next year.
An Englishman's view of America.
"Mr. William Sanders, the very obser
vant English journalist, who passed
through Omaha a few days ago, speak
ing of this city remarked that its live
ly citizens rather surprised him. No
city of its size in Great Britian could
boast of a single daily Newspaper, and
as to hotel accommodations, few cities
threble its size could compare favor
ably with. Another remarkable fea
ture wa3 the universal intelligence of
the masses, and their disregard of rank
and station. Said he, "when at Tren-
ton a very nice annearincr crentleman.
after giving me information relative
to the geology of the neighborhood,
was asked to show me to a livery sta
ble where I could secure a carriage
for ?. drive. To my surprise that gen
tlemen proved to be the hostler of a
stable, and what astonished me most
was that the inmates of several carria
ges passing by, who appeared to be
quite wealthy, all took off their hats
and bowed to this hostler. In this
country I observe millonaires driving
their own carriages and hitching up
their own horses, while in England
people who can afford fine carriages
always have their hostler and footman."
Somebody has been fooling this in
nocent gentleman, or he mixes his
terms up. Perhaps "hostlers" don't
meau the same in H'england as 'ere.

We were the tlrnt to Introduce this very worthy variety of swine into this country have
tested them thoroughly and we are convinced they are by fur the most valuable hrted'for the
farmers of this country for the following reasons :
Early maturity, iriiiet disposition, (rood breeders, cood mothers, and the very best Urced in
the world to cross with the laijie coarne bleeds. Kiviiijz iliem beauty of form, iiiirovinr their
fattening oualities. and greatly improving tl.e quality of the hams, which are nut excelled by
any other breed. Their color is black, the skin is perfectly smooth, and very thin and white
hence they have no scurf or skin disease which white hogs' are sure to get in a black soil ciiun
try, and they are not nbjt'-t to thnlcrn in common with 01 her swine. They are the largest of
the small breeds, making from three to four hundred lbs in one year sometimes reach W)0 or
700 pound aud can be fatted at any age.
Ve have now a very choice lot of Digs from fix different importations, and are prepared to
mate pis properly for breeding, and warrant every pi pure Essex or no sale.
