A Slanderous Telegram.
From London Court Circular.
Otto of the peers of England
lately made himself very seriously
and needlessly wretched about the
fidelity of his wife, though tli ere
was some excuse for it.
During the Army-bill debate,
the lady's noble husband, who is
as proud and fond of her as he
should be, was about to deliver a
violent attack, upon something or
somebody, when a telegram was
put into his bauds, lie read it,
turned pale, and quitted the house,
called a cab, drove to the Charing
Cross station, and wont to Dover,
and was not heard of till the next
day, when he returned to his own
home, and to his first inquiry was
told that the countess was in her
own room. lie hastened to her,
and a terrific row ensued, the ex
act words of which no one knows
but themselves. At last, however,
he burst out :
"Then what did you mean by
your telegram ?"
"Mean ? What I said, of course.
What are you talking about?1'
"Head it for yourself," returned
the still unappcased husband.
She did read :
"I ike with Mr. , to Dover
straight. Pray for me."
For a moment she was startled,
but then burst into a hearty fit of
"Most dreadful telegraph people.
Xo wonder you are out of your
mind. I telegraphed simply:
"I tea with Mrs. , in Dover
street. Stay for me."
His lordship was so savagc at
he laugh he had raised against
himself; that he was at first in
clined to make a parliamentary
question of it ; but listened to
more judicious advice, refrained.
Two Kinds Take Torn
Choice. There are two kinds of
girls; one is the kind that appears
best when abroad the girls that
are good for parties, rides, visits,
balls, Arc., and whose chief delight
is in such things. The other is the
kind that appears best at home
the girls that are useful and cheer
ful in the dining room, sick room,
And all the precincts of home.
They differ widely in character.
One is often a torment at home;
the other a blessing; one is a moth,
consuming everything about her;
the other is a sunbeam, inspiring
light and gladness all around her
pathway. The right kind of edu
cation will modify both, and unite
the qualities of both.
A Good Rule. Back yo ur
friends and face your enemies.
A Great Farmer's Maxims-
The successful life of Mr. Jacob
Strawn,the prince of American
farmers is attributed to the close
observance of the following max

Woman Suffrage. A woman,
writing a sharp review of the wo
man suffrage doctrine as advocated
by the notorious Mrs. Woodhul,
concludes with the observation
that "one of the -evils to be dread
ed when women vote, is that few
besides courtesans will be able to
obtain oflice." This seems to hit
the case. In the same article the
writer, referring to Woodhull's op
erations among Senators-and mem
bers of Congress, says : There is
no telling what these modern Cleo
patras may do, according to Mrs.
Woodhull's own testimony, how
ever 'cold and distant they may
be at first, they soon send to her
to visit them at their lodgings,
after which they come out flat
footed for woman suffrage.'

We have been pained to hear of
not less than two weddings knock
ed into cocked hats during the
pas two weeks in the one case by
the lady "skedaddling" while her
swain was riding night and day to
wards Kerbyville for a license; in
the other, by a sudden change of
mind on the part of the lady on
the wedding day. Now it be
comes our painful duty to chroni
cle another marriage knocked into
"pi" this time, however, by the
faithless swain, who, by-the-by,
happens to be a preacher. It
seems he took an affectionate leave
of his lady love for the purpose of
proem ing a license. She desired
to go with him, but out of consid
eration for her comfort, lie protest
ed he could not allow it, as the ride
to Kerbj'ville would be too fa
tiguing. Well, he rode off gaily
after the piece of paper which
should authorize him to enter into
the "holy bonds of padlock" that
veiy evening. But, alas! he never
returned. The last heard of him
he was crossing the mountains in
a direction different from Kerby
ville, to fill an appointment. The
most charitable construction to be
placed on his conduct is, that he
forgot his pastoral duties in the
midst of liis love-making, and only
remembered them when about to
consumate his nuptials when he
haun t time to send back word to
his forsaken damsel. So many of
these little breaks occurring so close
together constrains us to say, with

A Tidal Wave. Of course the
subject of universal interest just
now is the predicted tidal wave,
wiucn is to break: upon us the
night of the 5th proximo. The
anxiety about it, especially in the
recently inundated district, has
risen to a feverish heat. The peo
ple gather at the street corners,
and discuss the matter excitedly
whilst many plans, looking to an
escape from its effects, are pro
posed with ingenious and elaborate
cunning. Uiic person, an ancient
matron from Ethiopia, has gone
to work with energy, and, like
Noah, will be prepared for the ad

when the tide comes in, and save
her chickens as well.

Loose Life at Washington.
The Washington correspondent
of the New Yoik Jlerahl gives
a frightful revelation of social
life in certain high circles at
Washington. He says:
The public may have forgotten
that one of the last acts of Presi
dent Johnson was to remove from
oflice, or retire from the active list,
Rrcvet Maj-Gen. 15. W. Brico, Paymaster-General
of the United
States Army. Disobedience to
orders, or indifference to them,
which is the same thing, was the
cause of the President's action.
The clap-trap cry was instantly set
up by lirice and his'claquers that
"Brice was known to be a friend of
Grant, hence disliked by Johnson,"
etc. That was enough whether
true or not. The very first official
act of President Grant was to re
instate Price as Paymaster-General
at the head of the Pay Depart
ment. We are now told by President
Grant's principal organ in New
York, that Hodge's defalcation is
manifestly the result of "the care
lessness of the chief of his De
partment" Gen. Price; that his
examination of Hodge's accounts,
as required by the law and regu
lations of the Department, "was
omitted because of the favoritism,
and from the vicious S5'stcm which
has prevailed in the Pay Depart
ment, whose chief is, by his habits
incapacitated for doing business,
and who lends an easy faith to
others, while he nglccts the affairs
of his own office."
A reform is required in other
channels besides the one Avhich
seems just now to attract the at
tention of certain moral reformers,
the press, and city authorites.
Let the truly moral people of
tuc j-nstrict revive tne great asn
ingtonian movement in earnest,
and appeal to the heads of the
several Departments to sign the
total abstinence pledge anil stop
drinking and getting drunk.
George S. Routwell, the -Secretary
of the Treasury, is the only one of
the Cabinet Ministers surrounding
President Grant who. gets up
every morning with a. clear head
for business, lie never rises intoxi
cating drinks. Let him deliver, as
he can, an address in the House of
Representatives upon the duty of
men holding high and responsible
positions of trust confided to
them by the people.
A Suspicious Husband-
The SVcics Letter relates the fol
lowing good one :
Returning home late the other
night, a gentleman living on Mis
sion street disrobed without ( light
ing the gas, and lay peacefully
down beside the partner of his
-! 11 1 !
joys, linking oacic upon tnc pil
low, he straightway raised him
self again and remarked':
"I say. wife ! how's your pillow?
"Why, what a foolish question,"
returned she, "my pillow is all
"Is it real warm ?" he asked.
"Certainly it is ; I've had my
head on.it for three hours."
Apparently satisfied, he lay
down, and was silent for some
time, when a vigorous nudging in
the side of his wife proved he had
"1 say, wife."
"For goodness sake what do
you want ?" petulantly answered
the sleeping dame.
"I say ! you don t use hair oil,
do you ?"
"Of course not ; you know that
as well as anybody. Do for
mercy's sake, go to sleep."
A hour passed in silence, broken
only by the solemn ticking of the'
clock in the darkness. Then there
was another spasmodic nudging :
"I say, wife ; you didn't put the
calf under this bed to-night, did
"Gracious me !" returned the mat
ron, "what is the matter with you?
Of course the calf is not under
the bed. Will you never go to
"Well," replied her lord, sliding
his legs outside of bed, "I'm d d

There were the sounds of a
scrabbling round, a partial upheav
al of the couch, the quick gleam
of a white garment making for the
open window, through which it
disappeared, a thrashing around
the rose-bushes outside and all
again was still.
The custody of the children has
been awarded to the husband.
How They ahe Corrupted.
How modest girls are corrupted at
the watering-places is thus told by
a correspondent: Our girls have
sharp eyes and nimble perceptions.
They see the sensible high-necks
going to the wallj pushed aside
by the favored belles, who do not
wince at a liberal display of neck
and bosom. These never go un
attended, and are engaged many
deep for all of the dances."
to Clean Oil-cloth. A good
way of cleaning oii-clotji. -is to
sponge it well with skini'miflc. as
it brightens and preserves the
3filJc of 7iO.t's. Bitter almonds
four ounces ; elderflower water,
two ounces. Make an emulsion,
and add oil of tartar, one ounce'
and a half; tincture of benzoin
one drachm. Cosmetic. Beautifies
and renders the skin smooth.
To Mal-e Black Soft Wax.
Take bees' wax one pound, Tur
pentine three ounces, oil of olives
one ounce ; mix and melt them
together, to which add lamp or
ivory black; and when cool, make
it into what form you please.
7b Destroy 'Warts. Dissolve as
much common washing soda as the
water will take ; wash the warts
with this for a minute or two, and
let them dry without wiping; keep
the water in a bottle, and repeat
the washing often and it will take
away the largest warts.
To Care Carbuncles. The fol
lowing ointment is good for simple
carbuncles : Take half a drachm
of opium and mix up with two
ounces of white ointment, spread
as thick as the back of a knife on
a linen rag and apply to the part
three times a day.
7o Cure Stlnys of Tnsects. A
remedy for the stings of wasp,
bees, etc., that often proves effec
tual, is simply to hold a chest key
or any hollow key over the place
stung, press it hard into the flesh a
minute or so, and when taken off
the poison will be on the surface
of the flesh and do no harm. A
thimble with a top will do, but
not quite as well.

Cooke, governor of the District of
Can it be true that the Seneca
Sandstone Company is making a
great deal of money through vari
ous official relatives in Wash
ington. Ve trust all these questions can
be answered in the negative. Pres
ident Grant has so many political
misdeeds to answer for that wc
should hope that this particular
case of present taking may be kept
off his account. But we have re
ceived a statement of the facts
here intimated from such a source
that we dare not withhold them
from the public.

General Butler and Senator Sumner

We have. seen in the Journal
what purports to be an account of
a private conversation between
General Butler and Senators Sum

We have heard that General But
ler saw Senators Sumner and Wil
son, yesterday, upon the subject of
what was printed m the newspa
pers. Air. Sumner said that while
his language was not given, lie had
had conversation with two editors.
We learned also that a discussion
was had between the senior Sena
tor and General Butler upon the
causes oi difference, Mr. Sumner
saying that his difference with Gen-;
eral Butler was a political one ;;
that General Butler favored San
Domingo, but that Sumner did not;
General Butler favored the rcnom
ination of Grant, and Mr. Sumner
did not. General Butler then said
that, this being the ground of the
political difference" between Mr.
Sumner and himself, the quicker
the fight came olf the better, be
cause he desired the integrity of
the Republican party, wliich'Mr.,
Sumner and Mr. Greeley would
certainly destroy, and General
Butler saw no hope in the future of
the Republican party but in the re
nomination and election of General
Grant. General Butler also stated
that the Journal, having advised
the Worcester Convention not to
endorse the renomination of Gener
al Grant was evidence of where it
stood. There was much other per
sonal conversation, which we re
frain from publishing, even xjnder

Air. Sumner's opinion of Grant we
have,, but ...to repeat what he has
said on more than one occasion:
"General Grant," he says, "is the
lowest , man who ever sat in the
Presidential chair; lower intellect
ually than Andrew Johnson ; low
er morally than Franklin Pierce
and lower socially, because in pri
vatC' life Mr. Pierce was a gentle
man." This is the exact language
used by Mr. Sumner, who does uot
hesitate frankly to say that Gen
eral Grant should be impeached
for his conduct towards San Do-
A Monstrous Womax. At the
fortT -first annual, meeting of the
British Association for the advance
ment of science, recently held in
Edinburgh, Sir Duncan Gibb con
tributed " A Xote on the Fat Wo
man now exhibiting in London. "
As a rule, he said, enormously fat
woman were rare compared with
men. Caroline IIcenan,now exhib
iting in London, is 22 years old,
and weighs 40 stone or 500 lbs;
she is 7 feet around the body, 3
feet 0 inches across the shoulders,
and 2G inches around the arm.
Differing from most fat people,
though the limbs are very large,
they are not exclusively composed
of fat, a large proportion being
due to her muscular development,
which is confirmed by her history
and actual inspection. The chest
and abdomen are of course enorm
ous, but not from simple obesity.
Her growth and enlargement have
been progressive from infancy, and
withal she has been able to sus
tain great muscular exercise that
would have fatigued ordinary per
sons, which is opposed to the
view of pure adipose-enlargement.
At 9 months she weighed seventy
pounds, at 9 years she was eleven
stone, and at 14 years she was
twenty-four stone. She is hand
some, and pleasing, face not fat or
greasy, is highly intelligent, and
not in any "way drowsy. She will
in all probability progressively in
crease as she gets older, and may
become the largest and heaviest
female who has yet been seen.
