Tho Next Senate. Chicago Tribune. The present senate of the United States consists of seventy-six mambers, of vvheni 42 are democrats, 32 re publicans and 2 independents. One of these independents (Davis, of Illinois) may be classed as a democrat, and the ther (Booth, of California) may be classed as a republican, leav ing the senate divided politically re publicans, thirty-three; democrats, forty-three. The official term of twenty-five sen atois expires n March 31, 1881. These are the following: Democrats. Eaton Conn. Bayard Del. Jones Fla. McDonald Ind Whyte Md. Cockrell M. Randolph N. J Kernan -X. Y. Thurman O. Wallace Pa. Bailey Tenn. Republicans. IJooth Cal. Hamlin Me. Dawes Mass, llald vrin Mich. McMillan Minn. Bruce Miss. Paddsck Xeb. Sharon iev. Burnside 1. I. Edmunds Vt. Cameron Wis. Maxey Tex. Withers Va. Hereford W. Va. Successors t tUesa gentleaoen have already been elected in Maryland, Ohio, Mississippi, Rhode Islam!, Ver mont and Virginia. Maryland has elected Gorman, democrat, to succeed Whyte. democrat; Ohio has elected Garfield, republican, to succeed Thur man. democrat ; Mississippi has elect ed a democrat to succeed Bruce, re publican; Rhode Island has re-elected Burnside, Vermont has re-elected Ed muuds, and Virginia a elected Ma hene, independent democrat, in place ef Withers, democrat. These chanes balance the state of parties and leave it as it was before. Of the states t elect the coming winter the following may be considered as certain to sleet republican senators: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Min nesota, Xfcbraska, Xevada, New York. Pennsylvania and Wisconsin ten; and tlie following as certain to elect democrat senators: Delaware, Florida, Missouri, Tennessee, Texas and West PoMeir! &f elj Vri Kz t MaM3lE ?ATIIT ! THAT EJOHI'T Fa-EST THE nff So & (Do May . m a rm For Vice-President of tne Dnitei States, Gfl,. CHESTER A. ARTHUR, OIT NTD"W Y"OE,K. Virginia six. This will leave the state of parties in the senate after March 3, 1881, as follows: Dem. Rep. Senators holding over 29 22 Alrea ly elected 3 3 Certain to be elected 0 10 Total ' 38 35 Leaving; as uncertain and to be de termined by the close contests Califer nia, Indiana. Xew Jeresy three. The democrats are certain to have thirty eight senators, exactly one-half the senate,- the republicans to have thirty-live senat is, and the other three places ta be heard from. If Indiana shall in October give Porter even 2, 500 majority, the legislature of that state" will be republican. Xew Jersey does not vote until Xovember and that state will iu all probability not sepa rate itself from Xew York and Con necticut, where republican success is assured. In California there would be no question as t the election of a re publican senator were it not for the mixed condition of local politics, es pecially on the question of selecting members of tho legislature. If repub lican senators shall be elected in these three states, then the senate after March"3 1 will be a tie, the vice-president to be elected having the casting vcte. Humboldt tells us that an Orinoco Indian, though quite regardless of bodily comfort, will yet labor a fort night to purchase pigment wherewith to make himself auinired; and that the s line woman who would not hesi tate to leave her hut without a frag ment of clothing on -would not dare to commit such a breach of decorum aa to go out unpaintcd.

One day when trade was dull, a gro cery clerk procured a piece of sole leather from a shoemaker, painted it black and laid it asido for future use. Within a lew days an old chap from back in the country came in and in quired for a plug of chewing-tobacco. The piece of sole leather was tied up, paid for, and tho purchaser started for home. At the end of the sixth day i he returned, looking downcast and de i jeeted, and walking into the 6tore lie inquired lor the clerk. The clerk was called and came up emiling. i As toon as be cast his eye on the old man, he recognized at once his shoe leather customer, and commenced to , feel quite weak in the knees. i However lie kept a sober lace and J awaited develqpmeuts. j Said-the old man : ' 'Member that terbackcr I got here the other day '" "Yes, sir." "Well, was that a new brand ?" "Yes." "Regular terbackcr was it ?" "Yes." "Weil, then, it's me. It's right here in my jaws," eadly replied the old man. "1 kiiowed 1 was gettin' putty old, but I was alius handy on bitin' plug. I never seed a plug afore this one that 1 couldn't tear to pieces at a chew. I sot my teeth on this one and bit and pulled and twisted like a dog at a root, and I've kept bitin' and pul liu' for six days, and thar she am now, the same as the day you sold her to me ?" Seems to be a good plug," remarked the clerk, as lie smelt of the counter feit. She's all right; it's me that's fail in'!" exclaimed the old mau. "Pass me out tome fine cut, and I'll go home and deed the farm to the boys and get ready lor the grave myself." A novel sciieme A proposition to Avrite a romance. An unhappy marriage is like an electric machine it makes ono dance, but you can't let go. "I doirt mean to reflect on you." said one man to another. "X-," was the reply, "you're not polisheu enough to reflect upon anybody." "AVell ! I should er thought he'd er taken the old line instead ol the new one I" exclaimed a Kentucky woman "when she found her hub-and hanging in the barn. A person pretending to have seen a ghost was asked what the apparition said to him. "How should I know?'' he replied ; "I am not verse i in the dead languages." "Mr. Smithers, how can you sleep? The sun has been up these two hours." "Well, what it" it has?'' said Sm.thcrs "He goes to bed at dark, while I'm up till after midnight."

Life iu Lcadvillc is full of excito nicnt even for a barber. The other day a citizen named Plug strolled into a barber's establishment where there were two chairs, both full, and four teen men waiting. If there is ono thing that Plug despises, It is waiting around while a lot of other fellows get shaved. He figured on how to avoid it, and espying a friend in one of the chaii-ij he stepped up to him and spoke a few words in a low tone. Suddenly lie became excited. Addressing his friend he cried : "You third-rate mule whacker, I'll have your gore!" And tho friend yelled back, "You greaser, I 111 shoot you lull ot holes! ' "lean j shoot first," yelled the plug, drawing ! his revolver." "I'll let you ce you can't," roared the lriend, leaping lrom his chair. By this time a scene of wild excitement was taking place in the shop. The whole fourteen wait ing customers were wildly struggling to get out before the shooting began. Tlie man iu , tho other chair, without stopping to' wipe the lather from his face or remove the apron about him, leaped from the window upon tho head of a policeman, who at once ar rested him for a madman. One of the barbers had bumped his hoad terribly and got hi mouth full of dust, crawl ing under a sofa, and tho other barber was promptly concealed behind a bar rel in tlie closet. As soon as the shop was cleared the two friends stopped threatening each other, put up their pisiols and after a hearty laugh coax ed l he barber to come out and shavo tliem. I'hu tried to explain to the head barber that it was all a joke. But," said tho barber, "voure a fighting man." "No," said "Plug, "I am a regular coward and couldn't lick a Ilea." 'Then by tunkct," yelled tho barber, "you've driven over $b worth of trade away from me and I'll take the value out of your hide!" And he got in several lusty blows on Plug be fore the latier-could oiler to settle. And, somehow, Plug doesn't think it was such a good joke after all. captain Acioiplnis (ireeley, com mnnder of the IIowgatcArctic expedi tion, is a handsome young Xew Eng landcr, of Xewburyport, Mas.

It i3 related of Bishop Chase, tho pioneer Bishop of Ohio and Illinois, that he was called to baptize a chiid. The parent-?, who were a little ambi tious, had selected some august Roman name, such as Julius Ctesar or Diony sius Halicarnassus.
