A MATRIMONIAL LOTTERY.
J TnnitRjjis an alleged literary tveel

for one of its objects the promo

nan. 4e of alleged literary tastes and,
of &nrse. of different sexes. For one
COrr ispondence' that is productive
ot(SQ A results, it is safe to say that
ttiere are three which end in harm,
and not always do the "young ladies

"Heroines of a recent adventure. They

Meln' tte vein from a romantic young
man i 1 an adjacent territory. In due

ladies leceived the following letter:

Foa the past two months an effort
has been made to bring about a rec
onciliation between Blaine and Grant
and Conkling, looking to, the next
presidential campaign.. An 'inkling
of this has 'already reachedthe pub
lic, but as between Blaine and Grant
the statements have been premature.
"What was most desired, but was still
unaccomplished, was stated as an al
ready existing fact This reconcilia
tion has been sought in the interests
of ex-Senator Chaffee, of Colorado,
who is known to be the leader of the
Blaine forces in that section, and
whose daughter is married to G,en.
Grant's son. The original scheme con
templated the nomination of Blnine
for the presidency, with the induce
mentof secretary of state held out
to Grant, and "the senate to be hand
ed back to Mr. Conkling. It was
thought that under this scheme, if it
could be carried out, the Republican
party would enter upon the next cam

reconciliation letween Blaine and
Grant lias been. effected..
Tnus gently doth theN. Y. Journal
let Yillard drop: It may be interesting
and possibly consoling to those
who have suffered by the wholesale
depreciation of the Yillard stocks to
know that Mr. Yillard himself ap
pears to feel bereaved. While no
profession of disappointment on his
part can offset the losses of his as
sociates and following, proof that he
has suffered with them because of his
enthusiasm, and that they are not the
victims of duplicity, would serve to
mitigate the prevailing feeling regard
ing Mr. Yillard and his enterprises.
The insanity plea was successfully
interposed in a horse-stealing case at
Los Angeles, CaL, whereupon the
San Francisco Post observes: "Any
man who would steal a Los Angeles
'bronco,' knowing that it is a greater
crime in that country to steal a 6
plug than to lall a houseful of China
men for the fun of seeing them kick
must necessarily be insane."

was opened at Ckillicothe, 0., in 1800.
It was one of four ordered by con
gress to be located at Marietta, Cin
cinnati, Chillicothe and Steubenville,
respectively. Land had formerly
been sold in tracts of 1,000 and 2,000
acres. Finally it was possible to pnr
chase small tracts of land at $2 an
acre on five years' credit.
