Itbat Germany Mlgkt do.
Berlin, April 18. The Nord
Deutsche Zeitung, answering com
ments of the French press on a
previous article, says: "If mon
archy be restored in France it is
not very likely that Germany
would declare war forthwith. She
would probably await an attack by
Franco, which would soon be
made, under certain conditions.
The restored monarchy would
probably be induced to declare
war on Germany without waiting
ScattHced to Death.
Dublin, April 18. Closing ar
guments were heard in the Curly
trial this morning. Attorney
General Porter, on behalf of the
crown, declared the evidence in
support of an alibi worthless and
conflicting. Though Peter Han
Ion professed to be in Curley's
company four hours, covering the
time the assassination took place,
and claimed during that time that
he met various persons, defence
produced but one of these persons.
One witness swore that Curley
was in a saloon at the same time,
but Hanlon testified that Curley
was in another place.
The judge then delivered his
charge to the jury. He spoke
strongly against the reliability of
the evidence to prove an alibi; ho
pointed out that there could not
be the slightest doubt that the
murders were perpetrated at the
instigation of secret societies, with
which the prisoner was indisputa
The charge was completed at
half-past 2, and the jury retired
immediately, and after a short ab
sence re-entered the court room,
finding Curly guilty, as charged in
The prisoner on being asked if
he had anything to say why sen
tence should not be passed upon
him, said he had not expected any
mercy from the court. It was very
unfortunate that the Irish bench
was never without a Geogh. He
admited that ho was a member of
the invincibles, but declared that
he was not in Phoenix park on the
evening that the murders were
committed. Curley said that he
loved his country, and could suf
fer for her. He declared the wit
nesses who had testified for the
crown perjured themselves. He
also said he was a Fenian.
After prisoner had finished his
speech he was sentenced to be
hanged on the 18th of May.
As the officers were taking the
prisoner from the dock he cried
out, in a loud voice, "God save
Lo on Deck.
"Walla. Walla, April IS. Two
companies of cavalry, the com
mands of Captain McGregor and
Backus, are preparing to mount at
a moment's notice, on account of
rumored Indian troubles to the
north. They think it is Moses'
tribe. The soldiers are awaiting
further orders. Col. Parnell is
expected to leave with his com
mand for Spokane in the morn

PniLADELPiA, April 18. The
30b medals have reached here, at
last, and have been distributed to
those entitled to receive them.
They have been at Senator Don
Cameron's house, at Harrisburg,
for nearly a year. One or two of
the stalwart phalanx, who were at
Cameron's house when the bronze
trophies arrived, were given their
medals with an injunction of
secrecy. The others were put
away until the campaign should be
over. Cameron in overhauling
his rubbish before going abroad
found these medals, and concluded
that it was a good time to dis
tribute them. Boys here are ex
hibiting them as curiosities.
A. herioBS Matter.
London, April 18. The Daily
News' leading article says: In
the event of the affair with Annam
involving France in war with
China, it is understoodthatFrauce
trill confine herself to blockading
Chinese ports, as she is very well
aware of the difficulties of an
expedition to Pekin. The News
adds that it will be a very serious
matter to stop trade between
China and America, England and
Germany, and it will be worth
while for France to consider
whether Prince Bismarck will sub
mit to such action.

Pish ot The Tropica.
A letter from Nassau, in the
Bahama Islands, says: Dame
Nature, in accomplishing her work
for tropical climes, always seems
to have made the sad mistake of
doing everything for the eye. She
gives pure air, but it is full of
lassitude. She creates a vast
range of most luxuriant vegetation,
but her trees are small and their
fibers tender. She begets a huge
variety of fruits beautiful to look
upon, but if we except the orange,
lemon, pineapple and banana,
they are for the most part insipid
and of species which decay so
quickly that they are rarely or
never seen in our northern
markets. In tropical seas her
work is of the sam kind. Her
fish seem made to feast the esthetic
eye rather than the craving stom
ach. In these crystalline waters,
where clean living is the necessary
habit of the finny race, one might
expect every fibh to at least rival
the flavor of the sh.id, trout and
other dainty dwellers of the north
ern streams. But, instead, every
thing seems to run to color. The
supremest tints of beauty gold,
orange, blue, green and red are
lavished wantonly on these tropical
tribes of the sea. Even fish of
northern species wnen tound in
the tropics have some added line
of beauty in gold or crimson. The
porgy, for example, is one of the
fish most abundant in Bahama
water. But here, unlike the
northern kin, he has a scarlet
mouth and deep lines of gold on
his scales. Something in the clear
water seems to generate the vivid
tints, and by the same occult pro- j
cess extract all fishy esculence, for
tropical fish, with one or two ex
ceptions, taste alike. They have
a negative insipid flavor when
cooked something half way be
tween fish and cheap beefsteak
and when first caught they smell
more like fresh meat than fish.
Na-, many of these fish are really
poisonous. I have heard of one
well-authenticated case, where
some passengers on a Bahama-
bound schooner caught a tropical
fish called the batracuda, a fierce
creature, often growing to a great
size, and much resembling in
structure and habit the fresh
water pickerel. The fish was
cooked, and every man who ate
was seriously poisoned. One of
the victims became almost n con
firmed invalid in consequence of
that terrible repast. Nevertheless
the barracuda at certain seasons
and under particular conditions is
eaten freely by the Bahama
negroes, and I have seen it when
sun-dried on sale in the Nassau
markets. Other fish, however,
some of them most beautiful
specimens, and as to some of them
most absurd notions as to their
poisonous qualities prevail among
the negro race. The squirrel fish,
for instance, must never be touched
between the eyes, for yellow fever
is supposed to be certain to

The English millers view- with
anxiety the constantly increasing
imports of flour from the United
States. Each year sees a larger
proportion of our exports of wheat
sent abroad in the shape of iflour,
and the Minneapolis millers are
steadily cutting the ground "from
under their English competitors.
Flour is now shipped all the way
through from Minnesota to Liver
pool and London under a blanket
policy of insurance and on one bill
of lading, and with the improve
ments made in American mills
there is little doubt that our ex
ports of flour will continue to in
crease in a greater ratio than those
