"War Opened Asalnit cu Mexican Ocs
jicradecs. Santa Fjj, March 29. E'glity
of the best citizens o Rio Arriba i
county, have petitioned Governor
"Wallace to take prompt action
against desperadoes who disgrace
the territory. Wallace las or
dered Adjt. Gm. Grost to go im
mediately with sixty stands of
rifles and 10,000 rounds of ammu
nition and organize two military
companies to act as sheriff's posse.
The robbers arc led by Ike Stock
ton and have headquarters near
the Colorado line at Durango.
Another Snow Morm in the Weil.
Cincinnati, March 29. A snow
storm throughout Indiana has been
general, accompanied in man'
Tl-ifp; iiv a. stromr wind. At
Kenton, Ohio, snow is twenty
inches, and at Wilmington and
Millersburg six inches.
Dayton, 0., March 29. The
heaviest snow storm of the winter
set in this morning at about 4
o'clock and has continued all day
with little cessation, and is still
falling this evening. The snow
is wet and heavy and has caused
great impediment to business. It
is about ten inches deep.
"Rattle Creek. Mich., March
29. Another alleged wonderful i
case is reported here, Mrs. -Henry
Ingram having taken no food since
October last, when having had
some teeth pulled, she was unable
on account of nausea to retain
food, has taken nourishment by
absorption only. She sometimes
absorbs a quart of liquids through
the pores. Her stomach is totally
paralyzed. The problem is now
how loner will she last.
As the old "red cont" has now
passed out of use, aud, except rarely,
out of sight, like the "old oaken
bucket," its history is a matter of
sufficient interest for preservation.
The cent xvas first proposed by Robert
Morris, the great financier of the revo
lution, and was named by Jefferson j
two years after. It began to make its
appearance from the mint in 1792. It
bore the head of Washington on one
side and thirteen links on the other.
The French revolution soon creatod a
rage for French ideas in Ameiica,
Pretty Girls in a Wiue-Vat.
A resident m Italy vouches for
tlic follewing: In the vineyards
near us the girls mount ladders
and clip the rich branches,droppig
them into the baskets. With in
dustrious workers one day is
enough to clear an average vine
yard. Wlien the grapes arc all
gatliered in they are carefully pick
ed from the stems for the pressing.
Tle last process is the same primi
tive, simple operation that was
performed by tlie patriarch Noah.
The grajes are thrown into an
enormous vat, where the juice is
tramped out of them by the bare
feet. At this stage of the vint
age you may see hundreds of
youug ladies of the city of Perugia
coming forth in groups in the
morning, beaming with pleasant
mystery and excitement.
Your ordinary tourist, whose
only intellectual and instructive
pabulum is gathered from the
guide-books, has not the remotest
conception of their object. He
may think they are out for an
early constitutional. But early
constitutionals are not the rage
with Italian ladies. Shall I tell
you the secret of all that mystery
and excitement? They arc off to
the country to tread in the wine
presses. It is a novel holiday for
them, besides being a most salu
tary exorcise. Even prim old
dowagers are known to "wade in"
and banish the rheumatism by a
half day's exercise in the wine
press. Apart from the healthful
exercise of tramping, the new
inash-act is a bath to the limbs,
while the uprising fumes are
considered eminently stomachic.
After the treading performance
these ladies wash themselves in
hot wine, taking a moderate de
coction internally for the stomach's
sake. The effect is pleasant and
rejuvenating, and is especially
noticeable in the vim with which
they participate in the dance,
J which is the usual sequel to tread-
ins: in the wmc-nress.
Tlie North American Review.
In the North American Review for
April is a noteworthy article by Judge
A. W. Tourgee, in which the profess
ed reformers of the civil service are
mit n the defensive and their schemes
of reform pronounced to be incom
patible with American idoas of self
government, and on divers other
grounds inadmissible and impracti
cable. The same number of the
Reiew contains, under the fanciful
title, "The Thing that Might Be," a
profound philosophical study of tlte
Jaws and conditions of human pro-
gross, by the Rev. Mark Pattison,
rector of Lincoln coJhxlge, Oxford.
The third article is a strong defense
of the Roman Catholic side of the
controversy about religion in the pub
lic schools, from the pen of Bishop
McQiiaid, of Rochester. The great
problem of the governmental control
of monopolies is discussed with refer
ence to railway management by the
Hon. George Ticknor Curtis, who
contends that whon a railway com
pany is incorporated by any state
it agrees to this much and no
mere: that its property shall be sub
ject to such legislative control as
the act of incorporation embraces, to
the exercise of the taxing and police
powers of the state, and to the power
of eminent domain. The same prob
lem, in its bearing upon telegraph
linos, is ably discussed by the Hon.
Wm. 31. Springer. Mr. John Fiske
has an article on The Historic Genesis
of Protestantism, and Mr. Anthony
Trollope, an essay on the Poet Long
fellow. Mr. Desire Charnay, the
author of the series of papers on the
ruined cities of Central America, has
for more than two months been pursu
ing his researches in regions remote
from all avonuos of communication
with the civilized world, and conse
quently neither the presont number
of the Review nor the one last prcced
ingit contain any contribution from
him. In the May number, howevor,
will be published anothor of his vory
In something written we have an
indistinct recollection of having made
reference to a genoral disposition
among boys in their teens, as well as
boys of maturer years, to enlighten
and bless the world with their pro
found knowledge of the horse and his
history. Our books and newspapers
are full of this kind of literature, and
it varies in style from the production
of the child at school, commencing
with: The horse has four legs and a
tail; up to the eloquent tribute of the
scholar when he quotes from Jeb: That
his neck is clothed with thunder and
the glory of his nostrils is terrible.
He smelleUi the battle afar off, the
thunder of the captains and the
shouting. Between these two ex
tremes of the child at his first school
coni03itiou, and the professional
literature, we .have every grade of pre
tention, and each professing to have
mastered the whole subject. As we
approach the close of this nineteenth
century, we begin to look for some
thing hotter in this department of
knowledge from those who assume to
instruct" And it is to be found in
Kendalls Treatise on the horse, sent
by mail to any person for twenty-live
cents, postage paid. Apply to The
