A book is soon to bo published en
titled "The First Families of the
United Slates," vrealtb being the
determining consideration. The
trouble "with such a book "will be the
necessity for a revision every time
there is an important fall in stocks.
Ihere should bo an appendix for the
Yestebdat's London Daily Tele
graph publishes a dispatch from
Berlin, stating that Eussia refuses to
yield an inch of the territory she has
occupied on the Afghan frontier, and
the czar intends to express his ap
proval of General KomarofTs action
by appointing him commander-in-chief
TiiK senatorial deadlock in the
Illinois legislature is again broken
bv death, for the third time. This
time it is a Democratic legislator
that the grim sergeant has sum
moned, and as it must be three
weeks before the vacancy can bo
filled the friends of Jno. A Logan
think the chances are in his favor.
It is stated on the authority of a
naval officer at Washington that the
Russian minister to the United
States has endeavored to secure the
services of a naval officer there in
purchasing a number of small vessels
nsed between San Francisco and the
Sandwich Islands in transporting
sugar. These vessels are to be used,
the officer says, in preying npon En
glish commerce in Japanese and In
dian waters should war be declared
between Russia and England.
GENKRAii STEPnEXsoN, commanding
the British forces on the Nile above
Cairo, i-eporta to the government that
il'ivilf be nraticallv impossible to
move the British troops from Don
gola during the summer, because
they "will have to proceed so slowly.
The Nile, he says, is not navigable
from March to July, and deprived of
water transportation the soldiers
would have to march along the river
banks, over mountain spurs, bare
rocks and shelterless bluffs, under a
sun that would be simply destruc
tive. Le Noi'd, the most rabid pro-Rus-sian
newspaper in Belgium, now pre
dicts "war between Bussia and En
cland. Le Nord is regarded as the
semi-official organ of the Russian
govern tnent,and this article is believed
to havo been inspired. The paper
has hitherto expressed sanguine
hope3 of peace, but now says war is
impending. It now says the open
threats and continued insults to Bus
sia containod in the toasts of Ameer
Abdurrahaman and Lord Dufferin
were equivalent to a declaration of
war, even while England was appeal
ing for conciliation.
The N. Y. Tribune says: At a
meeting of the execntivc committee
of the Oregon Railway and Naviga-
toin company it was agreed that the
declaration of the usual quarterly
dividend should bs postponed one
month in consequence of the loss of
business in January by snowstorms.
It was a question with the committee
whetuer.it' would 'recommend a de
lay or a reduction in dividend rales.
It was admitted by all that business
in that month was really nothing,
and that the loss should be recog
nized in somo way. It is understood
a dividend of one and one-half per
cent, will be declared next month.
Ak order for six fast iron cruisers
of tlie Esmeralda pattern, was re
ceived in Philadelphia last Thursday.
These vessels are nominally ordered
by private gentlemen just as they
might order a steam yacht, but they
will bo for sale whdn completed, and
the offers of only one European gov
ernment will be entertained, and it is
thought that government will be Eus
sia. Three paramount features will be
insisted on, nineteen knots speed and
coal-carrying capacity for twenty-five
days steaming, and buoyancy for
three steel-rilled canon of large cali
bre. The Esmeralda is registered
by prospective owners of these ves
sels as the highest type of war vessel
that floats. It was built for Chili in
England by Sir William Armstrong,
and is about 4000 tons register.

A committee appointed at a meet
ing' of representative Democrats of
the territories waited upon the presi
dent last Saturday, and presented a
series of resolutions, earnestly re
questing him at his earliest conven
ience to look into the political and
. administrative condition of the terri
tories. The resolutions set forth that
the people of the territories are not
well -governed, and the president is
requested to afford relief by placing
..."good men, citizens, respectively of
ihe territories, in office. It is said by
,ome of the interested Democrats
that the rule of choosing governors
from actual citizens will bo adhered
to in every case, but in the selection
judiciary, customs and revenue
land office appointments the field
not be restricted. For Buch po
sitions citizens of the states, as well
as territories will be deemed eligible.
The gradual decline of the human
nose is said to be the result of the
introduction and general use of the
handkerchief. The Romans never
used handkerchiefs, and their noses,
we all know, were of the largest and
finest types. Moreover, they were
less liable to colds in the head than
any people of the present time, and
their noses enjoyed almost a sinecure.
As civilization advanced northward
from Italy the inhabitants of the cold
and variable climate of northern
Europe found that their noses were
constantly called into activity, and as
a consequence the average European
noso fell below the Roman standard.
"Within modern times the handkerchief
was invented, and a now and potent
factor in the reduction of noses came
into existence. Constant friclicn will
wear away the hardest stone, much
more the soft and cartilaginous nose.
Under the friction of handkerchiefs
the nose3 of the present century have
steadily diminished, until small noses
are worn almost as much as specta
cles. Chinese advertisements are not
much behind those resorted to among
so-called civilized tradesmen. Here
is a translation of a Chinese inkmak
er's shon bill at Pekinc: "At the
shop Tae-shing (prosperous in the
extreme), very good ink; fine! fine!
Ancient shop, great-grandfather,
grandfather, father and myself make
this ink; fine -and hard, very hard;
picked with care, selected with atten
tion. This ink is heavy; so is gold
The eye of the dragon glitters and
dazzles; so does this ink. No one
makes like it. Others who make ink
make it for the sake of accumulating
base coin and cheat, while I make it
only for a name. Plenty of A-kwant-
saes (gentlemen) know my ink my
family never cheated they have al
ways borne a good name. I make
ink for the 'sons of heaven1 and all
the mandarins in the empire. As the
roar of the tiger extends to every
place, so does the fame of the 'drag
on's jewel.' "
