Fresh from the government Drint
ing office i3 received a bulky volume,
the report of the U. S. fish commis
sion, a long account of the fishery
industries of the United States.
Though just issued, the usefulness of
the book is somewhat marred by the
fact that the report is for the year
j.oau eigut years ago. it is believed
that in the course of the next year
the government printing office will
have in type and ready for printing a
report of the crucifixion of Christ,
from original manuscript furnished
by eye-witnesses of that historic
scene. That will be about as enter
prising a3 to send The Astobiax in
the first days of the fiscal year of
1889 a report of the fish commission
of 1880. In this finely printed work,
which 13 on the desk before us, are
pages upon page3 of description of
how they used to catch fish in Massa
chusetts in 1G23, and the Columbia
river salmon fisheries are dismissed
with 32 lines. It is of the utmost
importance that the Cocasset Indians
and the exploits of Massassoit and
bow things were dono in Maine and
Nova Scotia in the year sixteen hun
dred and fast asleep, should havo any
amount of space, but so trivial an in
dustry ns that of the Columbia river
salmon fisheries in the year of our
Lord 1880, only needs 32 linei. The
book is well printed on good paper
and nicely bound, with pretty gilt
letters on the back.

"Tho song that made tho greatest and
most lasting impression on me,", said a
delegate from the south to the Domo
cratio convention, "was ono that I had
heard often, and had become familiar
with. It was not so much tho song that
impressed mo, but tho combination of
circumstances, the time, rriaco and man
ner of its singing. It happened this way:
We were down on a little semi-tropical
river known as tho St. Marks in Florida.
Tho waters are dark and heavy, and the
stream winds along through an impene
trable jangle of palmettoes, live oaks
and cypress trees filled in with a dense
underbrush that nothing but snakes can
get through. It was a good while after
sundown, and we were still far up the
river about two miles from the littlo
steam launch which we had come up the
coast in. Those on the boat felt a little
uneasy at our late return, and decided to
send out somo men to call us home. A
heavy sponge-boat was manned with six
stalwart negroes who were instructed to
row ud a counle of miles and shout for
ns. We were pulling. leasurely down
stream wnen wo nearu tne negroes iar
away singing as they rowed along.
'Suwanee River' was tho air, but the way
thoso negroes sang it I will never forget.
One with a-shrill, waiting voice carried
tho air, while tho other five, with voices
MTminf down to the deerjeat bass, wonld
join in every few seconds with snatches
ol tuo song, wo just dropped our oars
and listened until they canght sight of
us, when the singing came to an abrupt
end, and nothing could induce them to
ropeat the song."
"OLD BLACK JOE."
When Central Turner Hall wa3 rincintr
with German volks lieder and the strains
of Wagnerian marches, when the hoch!
hochl of enthusiasm mingled with tho
gush of the frothy beer, a band marched
into the hall at the head of a column of
singers playing with all its energy the
ancient negro melody, "Old Black Joe."

fact that the young lady's husband had,
two years previously, dropped dead of
heart disease in a theater just nt tho

It was called "Belle Brandon" and had a

sometimes be heard whistling the air as
they stroll along tho street.
