Oapt. MAitsuAiiii, of the U. S. En
gineers, on the Mississippi river com
mission, in charge of its improvement
a short distance below the Arkansas
lins, reports that at Mayersville chute
there has been a surprising change
within the past year. He says: 'A
pile five feet longer than the rest,
marked to indicate the front of the
dike at high water, still remains
standing upright and firm, but it has
traveled sixty-two feet down stream
erect and firmly imbedded in the
sand. Such cases have been reported
heretofore, but not credited by me.
This case I observed myself It can
only be accounted for on the supposi

TnE Mormon authorities are busy
denying a report that a certain
Bishop Wesi, at a place called Juab,
preached a sermon advising the
assassination of Governor Murray.
They point out feelingly that there is
no longer a Bishop West in the Mor
mon churoh, and that there is no
bishop at all at Juab. This may be
all true, but the fact may be recalled
that there was a Mormon Bishop
West who departed this life some
fourteen years ago under significant
oircumstanoos. Filled with the desire
to be one of the greatest of the saints,
he had gradually added to his wedded
bliss until at last ho had eleven wives.
Now, the economio rule in Mormon-
dom is that the latest wife gets all
the spring bonnets and silk dresses;
but Bishop West knew no such law.
He treated all alike to the best of his
ability witu tne result tnat an were
equally short of the luxuries of the
wardrobe. They all loved him, but
his inability to keep them all on the
Brigham Young level of -fine clothes
broke his heart. His fate is pointed
to yet as showing the dangers of sen
timent in practical polygamy.
The leading English medical jour
nal has been seriously considering
the case of Mr. Gladstone, and pro
scribes a peerage for him. This is an
excellent idea and is in the order of
the eternal fitness of thines. Mr.
Tennyson failed as a poet years ago.
The queen recently ordered him to
write an elegy upon the devoted,
loyal friend of the throne, John
Brown, but he could not summon up
the divine afflatus and was compelled
to send his apologies and regrets.
Nothing was left but to make him a
lord. Mr. Gladstone, too, has fallen
behind in the race of English states
men. He has been beaten in
Ireland and Egypt. The deceased
wife's sister bill is still pending in the
commons and the peers. The -best
thing to do with him is to turn him
into the old paddock of the peers,
where he can dream the happy hours
away. The house of lords is a splen
did cave of AduUam.
