Clearing Home Transactions.
New York, Nov. 3 The Public gives
the following table oi clearing nouse ex
rluinfrp transactions for the week as com
pared with the same week last year: New
York lias lost v.d per ceni, boston, 4.4;
Philadelphia, 1G.8; Baltimore, 12.1; San
Fr.mnisco. 34.7: Milwaukee. 23.2, Kansas
City, 17.7; Cleveland, 8.8. The following
have gained: Chicago, S.l; Cincinnati,
22.1; St. Louis, 14.3; New Orleans, 22.4;
Pittsburg, 4S.1; Louisville, 21.5; Provi
dence; 27.4; Indianapolis, 61.C, -ew iiaven
IS: Lowell. 35.4: Syracuse, 2S.1. The Pub
lic comments thus: Public attention in
all parts of the country has been so en
grossed bv the political content that bus-
in pss has been comparatively inactive
during the last week and has certainly
been considerably affected during the
month. While speculation in stocks has
been active, at times assuming unusual
proportions, the other exchanges have
not been materially lamer than they were
in Orinher '70. The fact that they have
been so large in spite of the political ex
citement that they compare not unfavor
ably with tne most active months last
vear, notwithstanding some decline in
tirices show a remarkable volume 01 bus
iness and gives reasons to believe that
the removal of political uncertainties
must bo followed by a period ol great
prosperity. In one respect the business
of October ISsU has been muen more sat
isfactory than that 0 October 1870. Then
a large proportion ot transactions were
speculative, prompted by an unrsual ad
vance in prices. The collapse of specula
tion Miiio sneedilv and then it Lecame
annarpnt. that much of the .eeuiine: in
crease in business has b2en unwholesome
and tpmnnmrv. This vear there has been
but little speculative excitement except
m stocks, and trie demand ror cominocu
ties and the prices of them have not been
so affected as to mischievously disturb
the natural relations of supply and de
mand. Tn short, business seems to be
much more healthy than it was one year
atro. and the volume of business which is
strictly legitimate and neaitny 1 11 charac
ter is much larger.

New Yonic, Nov. S. An evening paper
has the following: A Washington special
reported the. loss of Bennett's arctic ex
ploring steamer Jeannette, with all on
board, telegraphed from San Francisco.
It is doubted here. It is explained that
in October 1879 two New Bedford whal
ers, the Vigilant and the Mount Wollas-
ton, with 4h miMi on board ol each, were
caught in hack ice to the south-west ward
of Herald island, since which time neither
vessels nor anv traces ol them have been
reported seen by anybody. The whalers
were not constructed nor equipped for
wintering in the arctic, and no doubt ex
ists in he minds of other whaling cap
tains that the two vessels and their crews
were destroyed absolutely. The remains
of the men or part of the missing winder--,
as seen bv Esquimaux, might readily be
mistaken for portions of the Jeannette or

of the arctic in safety.

He had been out lor 29 days and was

The King's Death.
Mr. Macready was fond of telling the
following story as his experience of
American Independence, exemplified in
a western actor of the self-satisfied kind:
"In the last act of Hamlet," said he, "I
was very anxious to have the King, who
was rather of a democratic turn of mind,
to fall, wheu I stabbed him, over the
steps of the throne on the right hand
side, with his feet to the left, in order
that when I was to fall I should have the
center of the stage to myself, as befitting
the principal personage of the tragedy.
No objection was made to this request on
the part of the actor; but at night, to my
great surprise, he wheeled directly
around after the sword thrust and
deliberately fell in tho middle of
the scene,' just on the spot where I
was in the habit of dying. Well, as
a dead man cannot move himself, and as
there was no time for others to do it, the
King's body remained in possession of
my place, and I was forced to find an
other situation, which I did, and finished
the scene the best way I could. When I
expostulated with His Majesty for the
liberty he had taken, he coolly re
plied: 'Mr. Macready, we Western peo
ple know noching about kings, except
that they have an odd trick of doing as
they please; therefore, I thought, as I
wbs a king, I had a right to die whenever
I nleased, and so, sir, I foil back
upon my kingly rights, from which, you
perceive, sir, there is uo appeal.' I re
tired," said Mr. Macready, "to my
dressing room to have a hearty laugh
over what I felt more like crying over a
moment before." J. E. Murdock's

A Bird's Feak of the Dead. It is
not mere sentimentalism that pleads in
favor of tho most merciful form of death
being adopted in the case of the slaugh
ter of annuals luteuded for human con-
aumption. There is no question that
much suffering would be spared cattle if
they were not allowed to see each other
slaughtered. Not easy is it to conceive
the kind of torture they feel and cannot

express, jaow ousorvant are ammaia is
proved by a case which came under my
own observation. Among the inmates of
mv house is a jackdaw, an all-graine3
and vituperative bird as ever accepted,
under protest, human companionship
and human attention. He prefers so
distinctly sleeping in a cage where no
enemy can assail him while he is off his
guard that he is allowed to have his own
way in the matter. Ono day, while he
was in the cage, some dead xdieasants
which had just arrived in a hamper,
were placed beside him. His dread of
these was remarkable to witness. A bird
whose whole time was passed in defiance
of things "trongor than himself, in ag
gravating a mastiff that would not make
two bites of him, or in pinching surrep
tiously the flamboyant tail of his arch
enemy the cat when it came within reach
of his cage, went at this sight into an
ecstasy of terror, which could not be ap
peased until the uncanny objects were
removed. What instinct caused this
strango demonstration in tho presence of
death shown in one of its own raee,
albeit of so differout a species, is not to
be guessed. Much food for reflection
and speculation is, however, afforded.
Pleasure. It is not earthly pleasure
that liieth soon away, which the soul
calls for, but it is an indulgence in our
duty to God and our fellowmen, that
will brighten our path to the eternal
shore, and secure abundance of pleasure
which none ever kiow of until they
have passed the gloomy veil dividing
time and eternity. It is sacrificing our
own momentary pleasure for the promo
tion of the happiness of others and deny
ing self of all immoral lust aud working
for the advancement of purity, which
feed the soul ou the "bread of life" and
nourish it with tho waters of the living
fountain. It is the working of an honest
heart of purity for the salration of sin
stained souls, and surmounting many
difficulties, and forbearance of injustice
for the reverence of a high and holy Ono,
in order that we may have an inheritance
in the Elysian fields of glory, where
pleasure reigueth king, and joy, peace
and gladness are stationed on every
hand, which brings us true pleasure.
Cost of li ringing Up a Boy. A cler
gyman who has been discoursing about
boys has devoted considerable attention
to the cost of these somewhat necessary
individuals, and he estimates the oxpense
of bringing a good boy with all the ad
vantages of city life, to ti e age of fifteeu
at about $5,000. These figures are about
doubled by the time the boy is of age, if
lie goes through college. A bad boy, ar
rived at the age mentioned, costs fully as
much, even if he has not been to college,
and the computation, as the reverend
gentlemen suggests, does not include the
value of the mother's tear's and tho
fathor's gray hairs, Most men who
have brought up boys will agree that
the estimate is not too high.
The condor of the Andes is said to kill
his prey with his lull. The condor's must
be a "heasv prev." If our creditors
could have "come that dodge on us we I
would have been deaii long ago, as it is
we go one better on Saucho Panza and
feel like remarking "God bless the man
who invented the process of receiving

"But you can't get home if the wind is
dead against us, can you?" inquired the
nearest passenger. "Oh, yesf" replied
tho Nantucket skipper. "Oh, yes, I had
the boat made with two sides, so that
when she couldn't sail on one tack she
could on the other. It is the only boat
in these waters that is built that way."
And the passenger was reassured and tho
Clara got in on time.
England's Religious Condition.
Papers were read at the Church Con-
-. 1 r
gress yesterday wnicn connrra m u. 10
markable manner the truth of Mr.
Bright's epigram that "the working
classes care as much for the dogma as
the upper classes for the practice of
Christianity." Canon Barry, reporting
on "the religious condition of the nation
as represented by the upper classes of
society," says that "uulimited skepti
cism, the positive license of a conscious
ungodliness, and a resolute self-trust
and self-will are their only rule of life.
The Bishop of Bedford, who reported on
the industrial classes, stated that, without
much speculative unbelief or hostility to
religion, "the feeling of the masses is
that of simple indifference." The speak
ers had, of course, no intention of vindi
cating Mr. Briirht. and their testimony
is all the more valuable on that account.
Their gloomy picture of the two extremes
o. society is hardly relieved by tno ac
count given in another paper of the re
ligious condition of the middle classes..
Thev contain, we are told, the religious
might of the Nation, but they "display
deplorable moral weakness in reference
to commercial transactions." The ad
mission that the most religious part of
the community is deeply tainted with
commercial dishonesty is at any rate
courageous, and if it be true it compli
cates the kuottj' problem which the
Church Congress has sej itself fcqjjaco.
31ucli Plugging.
According to the London Medical
Record, an American physician, Dr. Far
rar, has calculated that about half a ton
or jnire gold is annually packed away
into American teeth ; and ho goes on to
assert that, at this rate, within 300 years
as much pure gold will have been buried
with the teeth into which it is packed as
there is now iu the whole gold circula
tion of the earth. Perhaps Dr. Farrar is
right, for half a ton of gold is only 17,
020 ounces avoirdupois, aud supposing
that ono American in a hundred has his
teeth stopped with gold, that would give
each an average amount of annual stop
ping of something like oue-sixteenth of
an ounce, which is not, perhaps, a very
extravagant amount. But we are not in
clined to spend wonder on these trite cal
culations "of how much gold all the
stuffed teeth of the ages may be event
ually supposed to contain, any more than
ou liow many wasted minutes all the use
less calculations of te ages may be sup
posed to uave accounted for. You might
just as well calculate how man' yards of
artery there are pulsing a way at a Guild
hall dinner, or how many multiples of
the present JLord Mayor would reach to
the moon. It is always easy to astonish
people by manipulating the insignificant
facts of lifo with the aid of the multipli
cation table, but the astonishment is bar
ren, not to say a little imbecile. The
Paris Unhealthy and Unsafe. The
unhealthiness of Paris has been so
markod rocenUy that it has excited the
attention of tho authorities who are care
fully looking to the drainage and other
matters of civic hygiene. Among other
reformations, the old laws are to be
again put in force as to the keeping
within the city not only of animals such
as pigs, cows, sheep, etc., but also' the
more domestic jiets, like dogs, cats and
birds. The number of dogs and cats in
almost every street in Paris is something
enormous, and their presence in the liv
ing rooms of the poorer quarters must
be very detrimental to the public health.
An inspection will shortly be made as to
the domestic pets of each family, and
strict regulations made as to how many
each house may be allowed to keep. In
the matter of safety of the streets tho
police are equally vigilant. During the
last six weeks, in one quarter alone, that
of St. Vincent tie Paul iu the tenth
arrondissement, there have been 273 ar
rests of vagabonds and night prowlers,,
and the numbers are pretty much the
same for the other quarters, making alto
gether some 250 arrests every night.

Courageous was a woman of the Com

had worked day and night in the hos
pital, assisting a certain surgeon, whose
services were freely rendered to men
with whose cause he had no sympathy.
When the insurrection was quelled, the
doctor was arrested and marched off to
be tried by drum-head Court-martial.
As he approached the door of the tribu
nal, he met his lato female assistant com
ing out between two soldiers.

and forebore appealing for his aid,
