The Missouri river has been on a

The water is subsiding.
If the prediction of old Mother
Shipton isn't verified and the world
don't come to an end in 1881, it isn't
because the elements are not trying
hard enough to confirm the old lady's
prophecy. With the terrible and
everlasting winter, the snow blockades
blizzards and floods, there have been
inroads enough alreadj' made on the
surface of the earth to unsettle ite
ballast. If this sort of thing is to be
followed, by cy.-lones, thunder and
lightning storms, and great tidal
waves there is no telling how the year
will end. Bee.
A local Texas paper says: On Sat
urday last some fifty or Bixty leading
stockmen of this section assembled at
or near Middlctown and ordered
seven men, whom they charge with
crooked dealing in stock to leave the
country at once. They were confron
ted by tho other party, which number
ed about thirty men, and for a little
while the appearancecs were warlike.
Finally a compromise was effected and
writings drawn up, binding the second
party to refrain from handling any
other stock than thtir own, and re
quiring them to call on a responsible
ktockman to examine each herd as it
was driven out of the country. Stock
men claim that they have been robbed
of a great many cattle, that their only
protection lies in organization against
thieves, and they are determined to
protect their property.

Birds are ringing, and all nature is
smiling with the freshness of the new
life of Spring. Thousands of happy
children full of glee and mirthfullncss
while away hours in most healthful
sport, as they glide on roller skates
likcsylplu over our smoothe pave

great numbers are seen moving in
grace and elegance with the fleetueas
of the wind over miles on miles of as
The cry is still they come ! Legion
upon legions of patriots who fiael sure
they are fore ordained to have a good
fat office somewhere under the new
administration. They are hungry for
loaves and fishes that their despera
tion leads them to harras Senators,
Cabinet Officers and the President bv
calline at all hours, seaaonable and
unseasonable. The poor officials find
the starving applicants like the frogs
in Egypt everywhere. For clerkB in
the departments the candidates arc
too numerous for calculation. One
has the handsomest daughter in
America, another was in Garfield's
regiment, another managed the ward
caucus, and secured the nomination of
the Hon. Billy Muggins, and so on to
the end of the chapter. Every Con
gressman has all the way from a doz
en to fifty to provide for. Meanwhile
tho worry on tbe President is begin
ning to tell. His appetite is failing,
his sleep is disturbed, and his general
health is breaking up. Under the ad
vice of his friend, he is taking out
door exercise on horseback. At 3
o'clock he leaves the White House,
accompanied by his private secretary,
mounts a spirited horse, and rides out
into the countrj. He lopks jaded and
worn. The President sits on a horse
well, riding off at a full gallop. He
looks neither to the right nor left.
After the experience he has had for
more than tliree weeks with the appli
cant for office, he is in no condition
of mind to prcparo the message
which he promised in his inaugaral,
making a fixity in the tenure of
The question of an extra session of
Congress is the subject of a diversity
of opinion. If the last session of the
last Congress had proceeded to the ex
ecution of business, instead of wasting
its time, the extra session would not
have been necessary or thought of.
Had the funding bill been passed early
enough to have had reconsideration
after the veto it would have leen
amended and passed ; and if it had,
the apportionment bill would have
had room to breathe, so to speak. It
was smothered between tho appropri
tion and funding bills, and so neither
survived. The responsibility for the
extra session lies in the stupid delays
of a democratic Congrcts.
The country will have occasion to
rejoice if President Garfield appoints
Dr. Geo. B. Loring of Massachusetts
as Commissioner of Agriculture He
is an eminent scholar, has bad large

ability would raise that department to
the high rank it should occupy as a
disseminator of advanced methods
among the cultivators of soil in all
parte of our national domain.
The appropriations for the District
by the last Congress were most gener

to replace old wood pavements, and
$133,000 of last year's appropriation is

In no city are there such rare oppor
