It is a marked fact that the salmon
this year are fully J0 per cent, smaller

make quite a material difference with

the price at Si 13 per dozen, and this re
duction staring them in the face, the
matter looks a little moie complicated
than before the season opened, and if
continued must result in disaster.

Tlxo Kiuirs Secret-
The Due de Broglie, lately prime
mimsti r under MacMahon. and one of
the leading statesmen ol France, is a
memlKTota family prominent in the
government scrvice'ol thsit country for
a century and a Half. One of the mem
bers, Count de Broglie, a diplomatic
agent of Louis xv. was sent to Poland
and a secret cnrrcsitondcnce followed.
The letters were ordered to 1h destroy
ed by Louis xvi, but were preserved,
and "the present Due de ttroglie has been
the first to have full access to them with
knowledge and capacity to appreciate
their value, and with the taste to use the
information as a basis of historical com
position. The narrative relates mainly
to Poland, its partition, and the wars
preceding it. Avmd picture is given
of the anarchical condition of the coun
try, and the utter helplessness of orderly
government under a constitution betteY
fitted for migrating warriors than for
a nation settled in its habitations, de
pendent lor its support on the arts of
peace. The adventures of Frederick
the Great, the intrigues of the French
court, the dissipation of Louis xv.
and even the doubutful sex of Chevalier
d Eon, are made to contribute to the
memoirs of Count Broglie. for such this
work is in its main purpose. Tne book
is well written and will be praised by
nian student of European history. We
take it for granted that the original
work was published in Fiance and that
this is a translation, though those facts
are not mentioned or direcMy implied
anywhere. The style is fre--.li "ami lorci
ble. It will be sent on receipt of price by
Potter & Galpin, San Francisco.
