"A little drop of water , a little grain of sand , makes the might ocean , &c. " Yon can't most always tell which way the cat will jump. At the hour of writing (12m. ( ) the announcement comes to us that the senatorial game has been brought down by the unerr ing aim of Paddock. _ LINCOLN is to have a grand mas querade on the 28th. AVe appre hend there will be phantom figures and long faces , as well as false faces' enough among the political visitors there to require no special masks for that occasion. Variety stores should take this warning , lest they may invest in articles which may not command ready sales this season. IT is to be hoped Legislature will desist from too much law tink ering. "We are Tisuna TO navn a Constitutional Convention in a few weeks. Prudence and common sen&o would dictate that the fram ing of new laws bo deferred until after the new Constitution shall go in force. "Wirn the resolutions of the State County Commissioners Convention before it what does the Omaha JTcr-i aid think now of its repeated asser tions that Nebraska does not need any more aid. What does that stu pid organ think of the unanimous endorsement of the BEE and its course on relief matters by that con vention ? JouxBAKNKS , the miserable trai tor , who , with uplifted hands , called God to witness that he would vote for John M. Thayer as long as any other man would vote for him , has gained for himself the unenviable notoriety of being the meanest man that ever filled a seat in a Nebraska Legislature. The people of Doug las county , whom this scoundrel temporarily misrepresents , will give him a very warm reception if he ever dares to show his Judas face among them. Like Benedict Ar nold , the name of Barnes will for ever be execrated by all honorable men. THE Cheyenne people haye no reason to complain of dullness of business , judging from the re ports of the Leader of that city. It claims that not a tenement house can now be had there , and advocates the organization of a building so ciety to put nr > structures enough to accommodate the existing demands for buildings. Cheyenne has now a population in the neighborhood of 3,000 , which , from the prospects of an increased northern and southern mountain trade , will rapidly in crease foi some time For a town which could not boast of a single if habitation eight years ago , Chey enne has just cause to feel proud of the progress she has made. " the proceedings of the "county couimRR'ueTA-x&nvention just held at the capital , we notice a recommendation to abolish the office of district attorney , and substitute salari county attorneys in their stead. Thisi > roposltlon7 if adopted , lo would increase the expenses of the various , counties very materially. to At present three district attorneys , at a salary of fifteen hundred dollars lars per annum , are prosecuting the criminal cases in the three dis ka trict courts. If the new judicial bill should become a law four addi tional district attorneys would have to be created. The salai ies of seven district .attorneys would sum up 510,500 per annum Sixty-four is county attorneya could not be induced - duced to serve for less than $25,000 h per annum. It is self-evident that : the proposed chauge would be very expensive to lax-payers. * a ' * .3 f * * - v LEGISLATIVE EXT2AVAGAKCS. The present Legislature is in many respects the most extravagant legislative body that has ever as sembled in this State. .Notwith standing the general outcry of the people against increased taxation , and the universal demand for econ omy in the public services , our law makers are exhibitine a singular de gree of recklessness in the hiring of supernumeraries. Thirteen clerks , each drawing a salary of three dollars lars per day , have been voted by the two houses to serve on the var ious committees. .No legislature ever dispensed their charities so liberally for imaginary services. Four years ago the legis lature carried on th voluminous la bors incidental to investigation and impeachment with but two extra clerks , and , if wo are correctly in formed , the last legislature only em ployed two committee clerks during aportionof the session. There can % be no possible excuse for the uncalled for extravagance. A majority of the thirteen clerks employed in doing nothing at three dollars per day are not grasshopper sufferers , but , on the contrary , they hail from the river counties. "What does the committee on buildings want with a clerk ? In all probability not more -than four or five bills will come under Its consid eration. The clerical labor in that committee , and in nearly every other committee , will simply/be to write on the back of any bill that its passage Is recommended or dis approved. The members of the committee will fcimply attach their X marks to the few lines written by the clerk , and then the labor ends. What do the people's servants in the legisla ture mean by voting $2,000 out of the State Treasury lor supernuma- ries ? "We sympathize with many of the clerks , but nevertheless doubt exceedingly that the people of .Ne braska can afford at this time to be so generous. SALINE COUNTY. Dsstitution More Aid Weeded. ( Correspondence ot the BEE. ) ATLANTA , JSeb. , Saline Co. , January 18 , 1875. EDITOR BEE : From the midsi of the grasshop per region we write to inform you of the prospects and of how the hard times affect the people of At lanta Precinct. Eumors have been circulated that there was scarcely a case of destitution in Saline coun ty , but ic is a mistake , and the re port eittier circulated through tome one that had no interest in the wel fare of his fellow being ? , or too proud to have it get abroad that he lived in a country where the grass hoppers and drouth stripped many a hard working man of ms all , or else , he is not acquainted with the sit uation that the people are in. But no matter how it came to bo circulated , it is all wrong Nine- tenths of the families in Atlanta - , , _ - . ing time , and already some are en tirely destitute of provision , with not a bushel of wheat for seed , and not clothes enough to keep them warm. A thorough canvass of our town has been made , which shows that there are not near as many bushels of wheat in the town as there are acres of land broken up , which could be seeded next spring. I will give you the report of the committee that madethe _ canvass , who certify that they gave the town a thorough canvass and reported the following ; Number of bushels of wheat in town , 3.460 ; barley , 140 ; oats , 025 ; corn , 13 ; horses and mules , Including colts , 145 ; cattle , 182 ; acres under cultivation , 3,883 ; number of grown persons ICO ; chil dren 164 : number of pounds of pork 4797 , or about 14 pounds to each person , if it was equally divided , which would not last them , wo think , over one month at the out side. We sincerely hope no more false rumors will be circulated , to keep eastern people from sending aid to to those who are iictually needing help. Wo hope f. r better times , but are not ashamed to own that we are In a destitute condi tion , and those who jeer and scoff at us , and try to prevent help from being donated to their fellow men who are ia distress , are meaner than tno meanest , and do not deserve to be recognized as American citizens , but should be sent to the Isle of Tortugus to re main there the rest of their lives.

( From the Louisville Courier-Jourtal , Jan IT ) One of the best actors ia Mr. Ma- cauley's stock company is , at the close ot this season , to leave the stage and fit himself for the profes sion of the ministry , his belief in clining him to the Radical Unitarian Church. The gentleman is Mr. H. H. Wood , or more properly H. H. Oud , who has been playing the posi tion of first walking gent this sea son , but whose versatility has shown him in almost every line of "charac ter , and who is considered one of the best actors in the stock com pany , playing everything that he has undertaken with considerable success. The personal appearance of Mr. Wood betokens the clergy man ; were he to wear the wnite cravat , he would immediately be taken by Canada Bill , the monte- player , "as one of his best game " His countenance is of a pale Intel lectual cast , tinged with a degree of dignified solemnity more distinctly observable in clergyman. In his con versation he is enthusiastic in his opinions , and seems to throw his whole soul m his utterances so much so that a listener could hard ly help from catching some of the spirit of his enthusiasm. He is much the same person off the stage as on it , and impresses one as agree ably in the one situation as in the other. As an actor , his versatility is manifest , in that he has played Hecate in "Macbeth" with a sur prising degree of excellence , and has been equally successful in such parts as Julian in the "Now Magdalen. " During the season he has enacted such parts as Mercutio , Sir Francis Levison , Volauge , Sir Charles Courtly , Eoderigo , Sir Benjamin Backbite and other leading charac ters , all with good conception , indi cating in all careful and thorough study. * A Courier-Journal reporter yes terday had an internet with him regarding his intentions to enter in to the theological arena. He stated that he had been ten years upon the stage , having commenced his the atrical career In his 18tn year , his age being 28. He first started with the Raval pantomime troupe in New i'ork city as a second dancer , at which occupation he was quite successful , appearing in Cuba and throughout the country in ballet and pantomime. About 1867 he left this sort of business and adopt ed the legitimate acting , appearing in Pike's opera house , Cincinnati , as first walking gent Since then he has appeared in most of the cities of the Union. In Boston.he sup ported Miss Carlotta LeClercq as leading man , and was received with favor. He afterward supported her as leading man throughout the country. He has been connected with Mr. Maoauloy longer than with any other manager , playing for a long while in Cincinnati. "The first idea I ever cherished , " eaid he , "was to become a preacher , but when about ten yeara of age I first went to the theatre , and became infatu ated with the stage. I have had a pretty good education , having been under the charge of a tutor in my earlier days. I have never lost sight , however , of entering the ministry , and the reason I have not done so ere this is because I feared I was not sufficiently qualified to eu- ter. The thought has only passed out of my mind when my 'duties on the stage were too pressing. I adore the profession of an actor , and play con amore , but it is not a sell-satisfying love , being a less pro nounced way of doing one's work in this w rld. _ lprefer _ tti jninlstry if thtfro be such a , thing , because Is a Jjlgh calling. Besides , I deslro to cultivate a literary taste , which I have very little opportunity of doing in my present position , thedramat- ic profession being very exacting In its demands. Perhaps there is no better profession in the world if its laborers do their work properly. " "You Intend to become a Unitarian - rian minister , do you not ? " "Yes. I am a Unitarian because I am a radical in my views , and a radical because I am a Unitarian , I intend to preach the northernmost views of Unitarianlsm , such as are are entertained by Eev. O. B. Frolhingharn , Eev. Dr. Stearns , and others Eev. Dr. Heywood ia more conservative in his opinions than myself. " "Have you been making any preparations for your entrance into the ministry ? " "For the past two years I have betn studying very hard , and , as soon as I leave the stage , ! shall proc ceed to Cambridge , Mass. , where there Is situated a theological colt lege , where I intend to perfect iry- self in the classics until thoroughly qualified aa a minister. In the event that I do'not become a suc cessful candidate I propose to enter the field of literature , having been quite a student of the higher stand ard poetry and of the leading prose writers. However , I do not fear any unsuccess. I have lectured three times on my views of religion , once in Cincinnati , and in two other places. " "What is your opinion of the stage ? " "I believe , notwithstanding al ] the short-comings of the drama , as profession at the presentday , that it is co-equal with the ministerial profession. It is a gorgeous and grand profession a study of the human mind in all its bearings. Legitimate artists are infatuated with it as an art , and do not engage in it merely for pecuniary induce ments. What else but the ardent love for it would ever have given men the desire to enterinto its * . ranks ? What but their love for it n could induce them , -when ignominy , nol degradation , starvation , and the olsc chance of being refused burial ia a sc sanclified ground and going to schi theological hell was their lot ? hiC A Journalist's RoTeiige. clot iy A reporter of one of the "smaller journals of Paris asked the manager Whi a theatre to give him two seats le lor a certain performance. The tl manager refused , and the journal m said to him : "ifour reiusal will mbi est you 40,000 francs ( $8,000) ) . " bi For six months alter the paper to biat at which the reporter was attached atbl praised the theatre in this wise : "Monsieur X. is a magnificent di- _ . rector. He has a good company , ? & ind his entertainments are excel lent. His management is intellijc eut. He knows what the people Paris want. What a pity ic is : Jiat the staircases of the theatre are wood. If a fire should break out , lie audience would have little hance of escape. " The result of m .his was that the manager was G breed to build iron an staircase , ot cost him § 10,000. otG ce the JAMES " \V\TLIE , a Scotchman , 3 therwise known as the "herd lad- 3th , " is making a triumphal proces- vibe thvi iion through the United States and beef Canada with his chequer board. of Eitherto his career has been un- shequered , the "Wiley chiel" hav- ng beaten everybody who came in way. ' Cl ] English and American Newspa per. ( Springfield Eepubhcan.J Although the English are not so universally a newspaper-leading people aa the Americans , the proportion tion of the former who either can not read or can not afford to buy be ing much greater , the larger concen tration of populations in Great Brit ain gives to the English press much greater circulations than ours can boast. Probably a one hundred thousand regular daily issue is the highest attainment of any American paper , and the only papers that can boast ot this are the Jsew York Sun and the Boston Herald. .Next to these comes the cheap popular paper of Philadelphia , the Ledger , with eighty to ninety thousand a day ; and after this we supj ese the New York JBerald , with sixty to eventy. From these figures there i $ a quick decent to from thirty to forty thousand , between which rank the New York Tribune and limes. After these and between and thirty thousand may be placed the two leading Chicago papers the Tribune and limes the Boston Journal and th Cincinnati Commercial. Where the Baltimore Sun comes in , we do not know ; quite likely , however , it ranks alongside or just below the .New York Herald , with forty to fifty thousand daily. But this list embraces all the daily papers in the country having over twenty thousand regular circulation. The London papers present much larger figures. The Daily telegraph , a paper larger than the New York Tribune , and sold for one penny or two cents , has a circulation , the last year , averaging 176,000 daily ; the Standard , a. paper of similar size and pretensions and price , comes next with considerably over 100,000. Third iatLe list is the Daily News , the liberal paper , a large penny quarto , aud printing from seventy- live to eighty thousand regularly. The Times , ranking first in power and inll Jence , and charging the ex ceptional price of three pence , or "six cents , stands fourth in circulation , and prints from forty to fifty thou sand dailies. One of these , the Echo , is sold for half a penny , or one cent , and prints' many thou sands , and it is a profitable enter prise. Some of tha workingmen's weekly papers in London hava enor mous circulations one , the Lloyd Weekly Journal , going up to the hundreds of thousands. Ol the provincial journals , those of Manphestcr are the best , and they have circulations about as large as the Boston Journal , and the best Chicago papers. The Edin burgh and Liverpool and Birming ham papers , though much poorer m quality , haye also circulations.equal to our most popular pro vineial news papers. All the materials of newspaper making are much cheaper in Eng land than they are here the "wri ting , the editing , type-sotting , the paper , * telegraphing everything , while the papers themselves are less enterprising and multifarious In their character , Saved by a Ja k. The following story is told aa true I , to show the manner in which juries j sometiines decide a case ; The jury lii the case had coruo tea a dead lock The powerful appeals of the counsel for tno defense had not ] been without effect , and the jury j stood six for conviction and six for i acquittal. Ballot after ballot was taken ; they argued on both sides , but not a sign of a change. As the jury would be out all night , cards were proposed. At midnight one of their number , Colonel , who led the six for acquittal , proposed that they should play ' a of seven the result game up , . _ _ _ _ - * < , , tTh - rnmo y who was for conviction , agreed , and the < proposition was heartily and unanimously adopted , and in'all se riousness , too. Colon pi P ? and the 1 foreman played , and the others were lookers on. The Colonel played 1 to save the accused , while the < foreman plaj-ed quite as zealous ly ' to secure his conviction. The bacters 1 , standing close behind their respective champions watched anx iously , giving advice and encourage ment aud keeping the two tallow candles properly nnuffed that dimly lighted the scene. The game proceeded with equal fortune , until the parties had each score six. At this moment the ex citement was intense. Upon a sin gle card now hung a human life. It was Col. P 's deal. He dealt slowly anu with trembling hands , his lips impressed , and his breath abated , and turned a Jack ! With the turning of this fateful card , which acquitted the prisoner , the jury united in a shout , and in the morning- went Into court and gave the verdict of "Not guilty ! " a verdict which was received with blank surprise by a majority of the spectators. M i Cook County national Bank Sus- c pension. [ Chicago Times , Jan. 20th. ] ar w The suspension of the Cook Coun ty National Bank yesterday created a genuine sensation in this city. The president was reputed to be the wealthiest resident of Chicago. He came here from Iowa several years ago , and owns two banks in Des Moines , besides having a branch house in New York. The Chicago institution , however , was never much of a success. During the panic sixteen months ago it exhib ited signs of weakness , and was only saved from bankruptcy by the most strenuous exertions. For several weeks past it has been oet exceedingly weak , and those who were on the inside expected the de [ nouement almost daily. The causes the suspension are numerous * The president has been speculating somewhat recklessly , and has lost > 37 heavily. In addition he has carried number of the worst dead-beats in Chicago , reputedly wealthy but real bankrupt Jlia advances to this class of men have been heavy. The local business of the bank was insignificant. Its patronage here has consisted of the most reckless - BUS less class of grain gamblers , and the ] losses through their failure to make good their obligations have been considerable. The country business , however , has been large , and several Iowa banks will proba bly be carried down with it. The last statement of th.e bank , published last week , was the most Favorable ever made by the bans , ind there are suspicions that it was Joctored. If this should be the ase , an Investigation by the bank jxaminer will develop the fact. VI Ax old soldier corrects the com mon error in regard to the rank of Qeneral Grant's son.
