from the honest firms or companies who
have been in the failing line this lively
season of bankruptcies seems to be in
the non-payment of capital or indebted

Van Buren Brown will be compelled to

for Capt. McComas, of La Grande,

There is evidently work for the Good
Templars at the hitherto quiet town of
Wheatland. A few days since a" half-

in the road who had in his pocket the
snug little sum of $1,330 gold. A friend
went through" his pockets, took the
money and locked it up in the safe for
his inebriated. friend. The next morn

Mr. Blaine proposes to forever settle
the possibility of any danger tl .at might
arise under tins discussion of what might
be termed the religious phase ot the
school question, by an amendment to the
Constiution of the United States, forever
prohibiting the appropriation of one
dollar of the school funds for, sectarian
purposep. Oar State Constitutions
would then be uniform, and the matter
would be lifted out of politics.
By the personal solicitation ot Presi

Statistics of toe Speakers. Readers
with a morbid taste tor statistics will pro
bably be interested in knowing that Mass
achusetts has .had the honor of supplying
the Speakers during 10 years, all told ; Vir
glnfci during 13 years; Kentucky daring
16 years; Indiana has had the Speaker 8
year3; Pennsylvania, Maine. New Jersey
and North Carolina 6 years apiece ; Ten
nessee 5 ; New York and South Carolina 3
apiece , Georgia and Connecticut 2 apiece.
The first Speaker, Muhlenberg, of Penn
sylvania (elected April 1, 1789), seems to
have beeu chosen purely on personal
grounds, as were Trumbull, of ConnectK-nt
(175)1). and Dayton, of New York (1795),
Muhlenberg was called to the chair a sec
ond time in (1793). by the way. Sedgwick,
of Massachusetts (1799). was elected by the
Federalists on the party issue.- In 1S01 he
was succeeded by Macon, ot North Caroli
na, a Democrat. Since and including his
term the Democrats have held the chair 49
years, the Whigs 7, the Republicans 18.
Joaquin Miller has been giving the story
the story of his life to a correspondent of
the Louisville Conrier-Journal. lie says
he came "from a God-forsaken, impecuni
ous, wandering racf," that his isther "is a
gentleman, a tender, soulful man, so mild
that he would not kill a squirrel, so knit
with peaceful instincts that he wouldn't
participate iu a Fourth of July celebration.'
As near as he can tell, the poet says he
was born in- Cincinnati in 1841. lie ran
away from home iu Calilornia, was capt
ured by the Modocs. lived with them near
ly Ave years, loved them, learned their lan
guage, fought with them, and escaped
trom them to San Francisco in 1353. He.
then went, to Oregon, studied law, aud
was admitted to the bar in 1S00. His
practice of law was "not worth a cent,"
and he soon became the editor of a news
paper tor a short time. In 18G6 he was
elected District Judge ot Oregon, and
served In that position four years. Of his
marriage he said: "I was married at Port
Orford in 1SG3. I don't khow of one
pleasant moment after that for years.
Kvery man and woman will have his or
her say about that part of my life. If I
read a certain book eorrectly there is but
one who arbitrates finally. But that sort
of sentiment aside, I leave no scandal to
feed the world on it loves it. Uon t it?
nor have I anybody's forgiveness to ask.
1 may De mistaKen, but I don t think the
world will, ever look in Joaquin Miller s
face expecting him to give it what he has
buried." When asked about bis first poem
le replied : "1 think my hrst poem, my
very first poem, was babbled at my
mother's breast, tor I never looked at
her, or think of her, but I thought, and
in song, I've a blessed mother." He is
at work on a new poem, called "Adrianne:
A Dream of Italy. '
An Illumination or Tbe Pyramids.
Dr. Kussel sends to the London Times
the following description ot an illumination
ot the Pyramids on the occasion of the visit
ot the Prince ot Wales to Egypt :
'A sumptuous dinner was provided in
the chalet or kiosqm? that was bnilt for the
convenience of the Empress of tlie French
at the time of her visit. After dinner
came the event of the evening tle illumi
nation of the Great Pyramid. It was a
bold undertaking the lighting lip of a
pyramidal mass four hundred and sixty feet
high, presenting two sides, each seven
hundred aud thirty feet long, and broken
into constantly recurring shadows oy over
two hundred courses ot stone, each forming
a ledge or platform round the pyramid.
However, complete success rewarded the
courage of the two Pashas. First, Bengal
fires placed at short intervals around the
hyramid were lighted and each stone shone
out as clear as day. Rockets, Roman can
dles, and othcrinore complicated eux d'r
tiflen filled the air with many colors. Then
lights of all imaginable colors' which had
been placed on every course of stone and
up each angle or the pyramid were so sim
ultaneously lit that the blaze seemed to run
up the vast mass aud in a moment envelop
it in one great niaze oi variegated nre,
while magnesian wire shone out bright and
clear trom the apex. Every sort of fire
work crackled and blazed and made cascades
of colored stars in the heavens. The sight
was marvelous. The Prince and his suite
expressed themselves greatly pleased. But
still more emphatic was the hum ot appro
bation trom hundreds of Bedouins who were
squatted about like statues in white dra
pery on the sand. - Soon all was gray aud
cold again, and the desert and Pyramids;
and the lonely sad-eyed Sphinx were left
behind in th gloom, while the royal party
gal lopped off to their paraee to drees for a
seeiai representation at the opera house
given by the French theatrical company,
lately arrived iu Cairo for the winter
