SUNDAY JULY 2G. 18S3
The best time yet made between
New York and Liverpool is six days,
nine hours and fifty minutes.
The German authorities, with a
view to discourage emigration, have
forbidden the railways to carry emi
grants at reduced rates.

This is at the rate of 13,000 a

HALr-PESNT dinners can be ob

The clerks of the first assistant

who have been denied the usual

a Washington dispatch, for an extra
The Oreyoitlan thinlcs that the
state exhibit at the New Orleans ex
position did no material good and
that it would be a foolish waste of
time and money to repeat the experi

The trip from New York to Boston
via Hartford, distance 229 miles, was
made by a train a few days ago in
five hours, deducting about seven
minutes lost in slops. This is con
sidered a great feat in railroad trav
eling. A sextimen't in favor of tariff pro
tection is making considerable head
way in Great Britain, and has devel
oped itself in the suggestion that a
royal commission be appointed to in

President Clevelaxd anil the
members of his cabinet have lately
received a good many telegraphic
messages obviously written by insane
persons. There is only one sane feat

A German newspaper contains an
obituary in which occurs the follow fellow follew
ing: "Our dear eon Gustavo lost his
life by falling from the spire of a
Lutheran church. "Only those who
know the height of the steeple can
measure the depth of our grief."
Lewis Purdy of Shrub Oak, West
chester counly, Virginia, probably
the oldest postmaster in continuous
service in the United States, celebra
ted his forty-fourth year last week.
He was appointed by President Har
rison in 1811, and has never missed a
day in the performance of his duties.
Duitixo the last hundred years the
English race has multiplied fivefold,
the Eussian fourfold, the German
two-and-ahalf fold, and the other
European races in a smaller propor
tion, Italy haviug nearly doubled,
and Prance and Spain having added
only about 5o per cent, to their pop
ulation. Men should always yield when
their wive3 wish a new dress or any
other article of wearing apparel. A
negro in Yirginia refused his wife a
new pair of shoes, and she went be
fore the magistrates and informed of
his committing a murder some twent
years ago; and now tho husband is
behind tho bars awaiting trial. A
warning to married men.
Sir Richard Caktwktgiit places
Canadian finances in rather an un
favorable light. IIo declares that
there has been an increase of S100
000,000 in the debt, for which there is
nothing to show bat two railways,
one of which has been given away,
while nobody cares for the other.
Since 18G7 tho population has in
creased bnt 30 per cent, while the debt
has advanced 200 per cent, expendit
ures 150 percent and taxation 150 per
Ox tho day of the failure of Grant
& Ward, May 6th, 183i, Jesse 11.
Grant had on deposit with the firm
$113,415, which he had deposited
with it at various times as his bank
ers. A demand was mado for the
payment of tho amount, but, as it
was not paid, suit was brought in the
supreme court for its recovery. The
defendants put in no answer or de
murrer to the complaint, and on the
11th judgment was rendered in favor
of Jesse R. Grant for 8121,472, being
the amount claimed together with
interest and costs.
In 1801 the population the United
Kingdom, exclusive of the Channel
islands, and the army, navy and mer
chant service abroad, was 15,902,0G0.
In 1SS1 it was 31,931,000. This growth
has been pretty evenly distributed
through the decadeB. It has been
greatest in England and "Wales, the
population of which has grown from
9,001,000 in 1S01 to 27,499,000 in 16S3,
or more than threefold. In Scotland
the increase has been from 3,52.,G00
The N. Y. Herald's Alexandria,
Egypt, correspondent has had an
interview with Hussein Pasha KhalhT,
the former governor of Berber, who
was present near Khartoum at the
time Gordon was killed. Hussein is
the special commissioner from the
Mahdi to the Khedive, this being the
only way in which ho could return to
Egypt. He says there is no truth in
the report of the Malidi s death. The
idea of Gordon having escaped from
Khartoum is preposterous.
It would appear to bo settled that
Gen. Grant's remains are to be buried
in Central Park, Now York. It is a
mistake to bury him there, and savors
loo much of the show business. The
place for the hero's sepulture is at
Arlington cemetery near Washington,
where lie the bones of tens of thous
ands of Union soldiers. There he
should be buried and there should
stand a handsome memorial .monu
ment. A statue of Grant would be
appropriate in Central Park, but the
natural feeling3 of all will protest
against his burial there.
