D. C. IRELAND Editor.
WEDNESDAY Oct. 24, 1877
Although the Brazilian law recog
nizes the death penalty, the present
Emperor has never yet consented to
sign a death warrant.
A "building has been erected near
Brigham Young's grave for the shelter
of a party of men who keep continual
guard over it.
The faculty of Lehigh University
have just suspended three students and
expelled three others, for hazing a
freshman until he became dangerously
A Spiritualistic doctor in Phila
delphia describes a death-bed scene,
in which those assembled while sing
ing a hymn had their spiritual eyes
opened and saw the dead brother issu
ing out of his mortal tenement, join
ing his wife and children, and floating
The Museum of the royal college
of surgeons has jst received from the
Hon. C. P. Berkeley the skeleton of a
crocodile, shot by him in Egypt, six
teen feet long. These animals are now
very scarce below the Cataracts, and
this particular one was well known as
a man eater.
While it has been generally claim
ed that Manitoba has an unusually
mild climate, the published statistics
of the Canadian government show that
it is one of the coldest inhabited por
tions of British North America in win
ter, and that the summer, although
hhort, is very warm.
The London Economist says that
if any of the foreign creditors of
Greece still entertain the expectation
of dividends, the recent report of Mr.
Wyndham, British secretary of lega
tion at Athens, will go far to dispel it.
The deficit in revenue this year is
double what was anticipated, and the
financial plight of the country is about
as bad as it can be.
The Chinese government has pub
lished the journal of its English am
bassador. The object is to familiarize
the public mind with liberal views.
The government is ahead of public
sentiment, and desires railways, tele
graphs, &c., but is compelled to hasten
very slowly in the prosecution of such
schemes. The journal evinces intelli
gence and power of observation.
Lord Aberdeen blundered terribly
in his address as President of the social
science congress. He argued against
the continuance of a law of imprison
ment for debt, which has, in fact, long
been abolished, and advocated prison
reforms which have been generally car
ried out .already. The London Spec
tator remarks .that this -sort of thing
will never do, and the Timor thinks
the address-inoifensive, butcnot-Tehat
it ought to have been.
The British admiralty have made
several conspicuously unsuccessful at
tempts to blow up the hull of the ship
Forest, which was recently sunk, by
the Avalanche in tho English channel.
Shells were tried first, and then torpe
does, all with so little effect as to bring
much reproach upon the navy; and the
papers want to know what a British
man-of-war could do against an active
hostile vessel, if it cannot break up a
wrecked and motionless hulk.
Mrs. Elizabetli Webber, who died
of hydrophobia in Boston the other
day, was bitten through the nail of
the second finger of the right hand, on
July 31, by her own pet dog. Pains
in her arm appeared on September
28th,, which, she attributed to rheuma
tismt they increased, and the physi
cians" called it "a bad cold." Even
after she turned away from water with
aversion, and her throat had swollen
frightfully, so that uhe gasped for
breath, the -physicians persisted that it
was not hydrophobia. She was'c&rried
to the city hospital, strapped to a mat
trass, and barking like a dog. She
died in,tliree-quartera uf an hour after 1
her arrival- The -hospital physicians
unanimously pronounced the .disease
NEWS OF THE MORNING.
An explosion in a colliery near
Glasgow occurred on the 22d, in which
233 men were killed.
The New Orleans collector says it
is all a confounded lie his business is
not loosely attended to.
Sitting Bull snubbed the commis
sion. Why did n't they shoot liim on

A proposition is on foot to buy

Morton, president of the Phila
delphia Market-street railway compa

in swearing to false returns.
The Woodruff expedition will not
leave New York until June. John
Roach has contracted to build a steam
er expressly for the expedition, as the
one spoken of first is not suitable.
Aarif Pasha, the new Turkish
ambassador to Paris, is instructed to
state immediately on his arrival the
terms on which Turkey would make
peace, if the powers wish to mediate,
in consequence of Mukhtar Pasha's
The Chinese of San Francisco
invite their countrymen to late sup

to pieces with knives and hatchets.
At least that is what was done Sunday
night, to Check Eay.
Through the Benton Democrat we
observe that the Harrisbnrg Nucleus
accuses The Astoria of throwing
cold water on the Wallamet valley and
coast railway enterprise. The state
ment is false, and is as unjust as j is
uncalled for. The Astorian has bat
tered the shins of its brethren of the
press on more than one occasion in de
fense of the railway interests of Ben
ton county. Perhaps if the Nucleus
man would subscribe for The Asto
riax and read its columns, he would
be able to speak the truth upon this
topic. We do not exchange with the
If the Harrisburg Nucleus would
work as hard for the interests of the
people of the Wallamet valley as The
Astoriax does, they could build that
railroad to Yaquina bay themselves,
without congresrional action, perhaps.
Why don't the Nucleus support our
efforts to gain for the farmers of Linn
county the full value of their wheat.
