The New Northwest has a.
.correspondent in New York who
writes as follews: "In the retire
jnent of John Kelly from the office
of comptroller, Samuel J. Tilden
has complete revenge at last.
When Tammany opposed his nomi
nation in 1S76, though afterwards
acquiescing in it, Tilden made a
-row that he would have satisfac
tion. This is Kellv's death blow
as a political boss, but his friends
say that he will sign numerous
aflrfieath- warrants yet."
The Boston Advertiser, in its
annual review of the trade of that
city says: The past year has been
& prosperous one generally to those
who haTe confined themselves to
legitimate trade, and the various
industries which are prominent
here have been mainly satisfactory.
In the early part of the year the
advance in prices of Tarious com
modities led to more or less specu
lation and over-tradings but most of
those who were tempted to specula
tion had made money the previ
ous year and only suffered the loss
of what they had previously gain
ed, so that there were comparative
ly few failures. The exports of pro
visions and breadstuffs have moved
briskly, and the provision trade has
been eminently satisfactory. The
boot, shoe and hide and leather
interests are highly satisfactory,
and show a large increase over the
previous seasons business. The
drygoods trade has been profitable
and satisfactory, and the. clothiers
are closing up the seasons opera
tions much better than they antici
pated. Many of the woolen mills
have suffcrod during the fall and
winter for the lack of water, but
they will have the satisfaction of
closing out their joods at a better
price than they would if produc-'
tion had not been curtailed. The
wool trade h:us labored under tome;
disadvantages, but the coming year '
opens more favorably, and all the
prominent interests are in good
condition to share the prosperity
which has come from bountiful
crops and good markets.
The law to enlarge the rights of
married women, passed by the
Oregon assembly at its last ses
sion, seems to have favorably im
pressed Gov. Perkins of Califor
nia, lie recommends its adoption
in that state.
The Detroit Times thinks that
the best thing Canada can do vrith
its unfinished railroad is to bank
rupt itself by buildinp: it. and then
come into the United States to get
out of debt. As an independent
dominion, Canada is not a success.
Previous to the late election
Senator Davis of Illinois, though
professing to be an independent,
was accused of leaning about two
thirds over towards the democrats.
Since the election he has voted in
the senate on every important
measure with the republicans. It
is said the senator would like very
much to be reinstated on the Supreme-bench;
but of course his
change of front could not be influ
enced by any such conditions.
