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. A Crazy FrcnK Pi evki.ani). Nov. 3. Yesterday a bright boy four years old, was found lying near the railway track on the J.ako Miore roau, his head between two stones and a heavy railway tie across his neck, holding him rlown." When discovered he was black in the face, nearly dead and unable to walk or talk. Subsequently he was re- vivpil and to id a remarkable storv that he was induced by a woman who lived rear to go to the lake on the promise of candy. Oh the way she took trom him a hoop, saying, "he would never roll the hoop ncTfiin " At the lake the woman endeav ored to persuade him to get into a boat, - .1 L - but he reused because me.e was waier in thp bottom and he was afaid of a if his clothes irot wet. The woman then took him to the place where ho. w'i afterwards iound, threw him en the sround and placed the tie across his A loft, him to ncM'ish. It was learned that the woman was insane and had escaped from home. Garfield nml the Cntliollr Cleveland.

President Hayes said to a reporter regarding the election that California, Oregon and Ne vada rightful) v belonged to the republi can party and that they would doubtless have given larger majoritis for Garfield had it not been lor the enects of the for ged Chinese letter. People in these states were very deeply interested in the Chin ese question and the Morey letter was probably emulated in remote mining camps where it was impossible in the time at the disposal of the republicans to have it thoroughly contradicted and ex posed.

Cosily Experiment. New York, Nov. 7. Stockholders of the Edison Electric Light Co. have been rssessed sixty dollars a share to meet the expenses of Edison's recent experiments. The trustees wili meet Nov. 30th to vote upon increasing the capital stock $480,000 by the issue ol 1S00 additional shares. The stock has risen to SI 200 a share on the report that Edison will make a pub lic experiment with his invention early next month, preparatory to putting the liiiht into uKe in the city.

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 t Capt. Hooper, of the revenue been issued commanding Mayor Kalloch Corwin, does not believe the to show cause why he should not be pun :e is loPt, as she was powerfully ihed for contempt in attacking the grand ier crew steamer Jeannette b jilt, with a special view to ice pressure, and so model-d that it was expected the pack ice would raie her out ui the water rather than cnMi her. tor these, among other reason-, hope is entertained that the Jeannette people will yet come out of the arctic in safety.

Among the accused are the alleged au thors of the explosion on Moscow railway and at the winter palace supposed de signer of the Alexandrosky dynamite mine disaster, and persons who attended the Nihilist congresses at Dipitsk and Tambolf when the above attempts against the life of the 1 zar were icsolved upon. Another prisoner to bo tried is a man said to have given the nihilist committee all his property amounting to lO,000 roubles, and who was tried at Odessa in Fntul Seareli for Gold. Victoria, Nov. 1. A few weeks ago an old man named Alexander Swift, who had gone into the Skagit mines to seek for gold, was found by a miner wander ing in an almost famished state, among the mountains of that inhospitable region. He had been out lor 29 days and was taken into a camp, fed, clothed and start ed oil the way towards the town of Fort Hope, on trazer river. He never reached that place.

The college barrel is loaded with free salvation," an it asks if the divinity students are not taught one thing in theory and another in practice. 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 "Book on the Stage." 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 -r-r 1 1 . . 1 ! .. 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 and filing bills." "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 Spectation. 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. I London Times. m AuCTC. Courageous was a woman of the Com mune, who, during that terrible rising, 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. "Why, Adele!" he exclaimed, "how camo you here V" Looking hard at him, with unrecog-. nizmg eyes, she replied: don't know vnn civ a denial he set down to a fear of acknowledging the acquaintance of a doomed man. No lit tle to his surprise, ho got off and was set at liberty, to learn that Adele had been shot, and was on her way to death when she had repudiated all knowledge of him, and forebore appealing for his aid, rather than compromise him, and render his chance a desxierate one. Chamber's Journal. When you see au article in a newspa per headed "The Political Outlook," look at the bottom line, and if it says "sold by all druggists," don't read it. There is such an article going the rounds which is tho advertisement of a patent medicine. It is a counterfeit well calcu lated to deceive. Don't read a political article unless the owner's name is blown in the bottle. Sala says that he is beginning to think that there are no original sayings at all in the world.
