New York, Jan. 10. The steamer
Rhiamendela, which arrived to-day
from Cardiff, reports heavy gales
during the entire passage. On the
7th of December her port bulworks
and stanchions were carried away,
hatches and saloon skylight stove,

cluding the binnacles, were washed

Cincinnati, Jan. 10. Heavy snow
storm visited southern Ohio yesterday

It designates the resumption of specie
payment ''as one of the grandest
"achievineuts in the financial history
"of the nation, and as an evidence
"of the -wise policy and enormous
"resources of the country."1
aEH'Goods speak for themselves,"
hut it is onlv alivr they are bought that

speak for the goods.
S"Do hogs pay?" asks an agricul
tural correspondent. We know of some
that don't. They subscribe for a paper,
rend it for a few years for nothing, and
then send it back to the publisher with
the P. M.s inscription, "refused." Such
hojrs as that pay nothing to anybody, if
they can help it
jS&To discriminate between what
is news and what is advertising in an
item is often a difficult task for a pub
lisher. Newspapers, to be on the safe
side, must sharge when the item brings
inoney to others. Such is but justice,
and in compliance with the laws of bus
iness, and without this discrimination a
liuwspaper wjl fail, financially.
