A few days ego a German woman, wife of John Hoffman, a fish erman, died at her home, situated in tbe north part of the city, in tho district formerly attached to Mount Pleasant. Some ladies oi the Samari tan nature, who ore eTer ready to help in casa of distress, sickness or death, went to tbe bouse to prepare the corpse for a Christian burial. In the house everything bore the imprint of the most abject squalor. In a cradle covered with an old piece of oil-cloth lay the corpse of a baby but two months old, on whose body, which was a mass of filth, maggots were found crawling. On the tea, composed of a pile of rags, was tne dead mother, her bands fiercely clutched, as if she bad died in great agony. Upon making tbe prepara tions for laying out the body, tbe hands, by dint of bard work, were opened or unclasped, when a $5 greenback and a ten cent piece, postal curren cy, were found therein, to the surprise of all pres ent, even the deceased woman s husband ; nor was that all: for, upon commencing to remove her garments, upon almost every portion of her body small amounts of money were found, even to 91 bill lving on her abdomen. About the bed were found different amounts of money, rolled up in rags, come of which must hare been boarded for years, as bills on old State banks were found, one ef which was so mutilated and obliterated that it could not be discovered what bank had is sued it : bow much more is hid awar abont the house in out-of-tbe-way places is r.ot known, if any, but the supposition is that more will yet be discovered.

Men may wear a badge of mourning for a time, and then resume light clothes? And very few dan to brave Mrs. Grundy, ana follow out tbeir convictions bv refusing to yield to this abaard demand of ens- . torn. We think it is growing worse and worse. A family will wear crape three years, and black- ' dresses three years mere, for a mother who went straight to Heaven, and who would say to them,. "Mourn not for me. And so strong is the force of example that some one else must do the same or it shows a "want of feeling." Now it in no small thing ' to take away so much that is bright and cbeerfnl in one's surroundings for so- . many year or frhe en smnmtf to a dress that IS hot, heavy and inconvenient.

Why spoil that t -,Tho whole -is a foolish; wasteful and w eked expense, and Is often a burden that ean ill be born by those who' can t y no means afford it, and yet dare not ig nore tbe eustoui.

Soma individuals bave independence, rreciseiywnai ean De aone by concerted action we do not see. Tbe aountry is overrun now with committees, societies, organ izations, clubs and associations.

It is no time to get up extra moral courage under the shock of deep affliction. But one gets weary" of the mockery and semblance of woe, crape, flowers and gay mourning. Can't men help. women out of this bondage by suggesting tome- badge of mourning which shall say, like the band on a man's hat, "I hare lost a fricad T" As it is,, in many eases, the dress is a greater trial than- the loss.

Knott is one of tbe old Bonrhoa leaders la KeSv tueky, and in a recent speech these, he-cbserXed the New Departure as tbe act of some Impatient Bamoerat, who seeing the Radical party going ta destruction on the down grade with tbe Brakes off, have determined to beat them by jumping on to tbe eoweatebee. A special dated London, Auguat 5th, has this A letter of tbe Eruprcrs F.ugcnieto the Czar, jus t published, alludes to a friendly Power lhathad ex pressed a desire to intervene in favor of France, after the surrender of sedan. llmt Power was Russia. Emperor tbe Empress iuiinod Sedan, offering to teerity of French same dispatch, informed the Empress that he had earnestly recommended tbe King of Prussia to open negotiations for peace, and not insist on a cession of French territory, bs the disintegration of France would be tlangerons to tbe peaee of Europe. Tbe hope of Russian intervention, was, however, spoiled t-y the outbreak of the revolu tion of September 4th, and the flight of the Em press which took place a few hours after the dis patch has been received from Empeior Alexander. Hearing tbe news that the Republie had been proclaimed, the Emperor withdrew his proffered intervention and notified the King of Prussia that Russia would remain central. Jules Favre and all former members of tbe Government of September 4th knew of tho existence of the dis patch. It is said to have been found after tbe flight of tbe Empress among papers of the Em peror, but withcld from publication by the Gov ernment of National Bcfenee. Tho revelations are apparently to be made public with tbe consent of Empress Eugenie. ; Republicans, chiefly Jules Favre and bis former colleagues, will probably deny the proposed intervention of tbe Czar., but tbe truth is the faets related can be completely established. . Tat Walla Walla Valley Graix Crops. : The Real Ettate Jleeord for July gives this j To write concerning the crop at present one cannot give as close an ostimare at would le de-sirable, as there is at this time but little that has been threshed. In fact, we are now rieht in the midst of harvest, and there is probably one half that is not yet eut, end but little has been threshed com pared with what is yet to come ; still, some of tbe new crop of wheat is now in market. Farmers tell us that Fall -sown wheat yields very large, but that some of the later Spring-sown grain is rather light, owing to the dry, hot weather in June and a part of July. We have made in quiries of several farmers whi have threshed their grain, all of whom report very favorably. One farmer informed us that his Fall wheat averaged him 61 bushels to the acre. . Another bus seventy five acres of Fall and Spring wheat and oats, and this was the first crop raised on the land ; tho Fall wheat yielded a little over 41 bushels to the acre and tbe Spring wheat 31 bushels. We did not learn the yield per acre of oats. ' Another farmer informed ut that his Fall wheat yielded 40 bush els to tho acre and his Spring wheat 30. - There is now no doubt that the yield of grain throughout this Valley will be a large ono. Take tbe whole grain crop of both Spring and Fall sowing, the above may be taken at about an average. Tbe price, although too low, is better than it opens after some harvests, and there Is a probability that wheat will sell at from 7S to 80 cents per bushel before W inter. , It is true that we bave to sell at low prices at present, but then we ean raise it cheaper than anywhere else, and ean, if neect tarv. sell our products cheaper than sny other valley on this coast. - S "'':,'r' ; Wales asd Louse.
