Destruction of the Vines. An evil only inferior in the best me naces Italy from the north. The phyl loxera vastatrix, which has already par tially destroyed the vineyards of France, is now very near Italy, ;md if energetic measures are not implored will continue its march. It has been observed about thirteen miles front Ventimigha not far from Nice, and at its usual rate of pro gress ihe incursion ot this i;ise.\ may be expected in lta'y next year. Those who have studied the character and habits of the phylloxera assert that its progress is slow, but sure. They rec ommend burning the infected vineyards as soon as it arrive; in Italy as the only means of arresting its progress, and even that relief would only be temporary Bat in the interval thus gained, agricul turists hope that some effectual remedy will be discovered. As yet this has been sought in vain. The vines have been kept wet and dry; they have been fumed with sulphurate of carbon, with carbonate of potash, and other disinf...

The Folly ot Virtue. A very good and pious-looking young man applied for a position in a well known store, last week. After he had introduced himself and made known his wants, the proprietor informed him that he would like to have a cleik if he would get one that would s-uit him. "I suppose you to church, eh?" he commenced. "Yes, sir." "Do you drink?" continue; the mer chant, eyeing Mm sharply. "Never!" "Do you use tobacco in any form?" Here the young man pushed the quid into the roof of his mouth' and replied with a smile that was childlike and bland: "Inever use the weed, and never did. I consider it the lowest and most shock ing habit that a man can be addicted to." •'Do you frequent the pollicy shops?" "No, sir; never!" "Do you go to the National Theatre, dog fights, or boxing exhibitions?" "Never was at any in my life," was the emphatic repiy. "Can you tell the ace oi diamonds frsm the king of clubf?" "I know nothing whatever of cards!" "Do you ever bet?" "No, sir, I don't!" K ...

A Child In » Pnnther's Jaws. [Yreka J ouriuil, April , - !d. | Last Thursday eveningabout dark, Mr. and Mrs. George Campbell and Dick Mannon were sitting on the porch of the Soda Springs Hotel, at Soda Springs, on the Sacramento river, while Mr. Campbell's little boy, aged about 3 years, was across the road, about 50 or 00 feet distant, amusing himself by cutting bushes •with a little hatchet. Those on the porch were startled and horrified by observing a panther spring upon the child, and at the time supposed he was dangerously injured, which would have been the case, no doubt, had not the child screamed anil had not those on the porch shouted excitedly, which prevented the panther making a deadly spring, as be was evidently watching and fearing the parties on the porch. As it was, the panther seized the child by the chin, one of the tusks of the under jaw cutting his neck, while the paw of the beast struck and scratched him in the breast. The shouting and rushing toward the child b...

Characteristic. Bome one has brought to light a pri vate letter from Lincoln to Hooker, when the latter was entrusted with the command of the Army of the Potamac. The letter is so characteristic that we give it in full, as follows : General —I have placed you at the head of the Army of the Potomac. Of course, I have done this npon what ap pears to me to be sufficient reasons, and yet I think it best for you to know that there are some things in legard to which J am not quite satisfied with yon. 1 believe you to be a brave and skillful sol dier, which, of course, I like, f also believe that you do not mix in politics with your profession, in which you are right. You have confidence in yourself, which is a valuable, if not an indispon sible, quality. You .ire ambitious, which within reasonable bounds, does good lather than harm; but [.think that dur ing G*n.

The Secrete of Snake-Chaxming. In India the favorite snake for exhibi tion is the cobra, partly because of its more striking appearance, and partly be cause, its deadly character being so well known, any trilling with it appears to the uninitiated public the more wonderful. Nor, indeed, do the performances of the Hindoo snake-charming lose, on belter acquaintance, all their rnarvelousncss, for courage of a high order, arising partly from the confidence acquired by long practice, is manifested in seizing and bag ging the dreadful obhidian. In most cases the charmer renders th reptiles harmless by drawing their poison fangs, and the exhibition becomes then merely one which exhibits the snake's highly trained condition. On the other hand, it often happens that the basket con tains the veritable death-deaier, and a cobra with his fangs undrawn is nearly al wavs forthcoming if the temptation in mon ey be sufficiently strong. But in the hand ling of the creature when once exposed there is...

A Way Tney Have. Young ladies in Moscow think noth ing of shooting a fellow in polite society. Three weeks ago a young nobleman named Bairaschewski was seated at home in his salon, entertaining a few in timate friends. In the midst of a lively conversation the door suddenly opened, and there entered a young lady named Yraskowia Katschka, about nineteen years old, handsome and prepossessing, a member moreover, of a well known and very noble family in the Wilna District Perfectly calm and self-pos sessed, she gracefully saluted the vis itors present in the chamber. Then, drawing a revolver from her pocket, she deliberately shot Bairaschewski through the head, so that he fell to tho ground dead instantaneously. So rapidly and coolly was the deed committed that all was over before anyone in the salon at tempted to interfere. Vrnskowia made no attempt to escape and permitted her self to be arrested without the slightest resistance. It is said that two days be fore his assassination Haiia...

The Second Veto. The Cincinnati Commercial, a paper of Republio.ui tendencies, says; The President lias acted upon a sense of duty, and refuses to yield to the impertinent demand of the Con federates that he shall surrender his power as the executive of the nation and commander-in-chief of the avmv. He makes clear the fact that the em ployment of the army will be scrupu lously constitutional, but against the comfederate requirement* that he shall surrender his sword or the army shall be starved, he stands with a resolute refusal. Now let the heathen rage. The democrats can caucus again, and within the caucus, two-thirds com- , posed of old confederate soldiers and politicians, it will be decreed that the army shall perish. The Confederate! hare been trying to get at the army to j reorganize it in their own interest. They would be glad to break it up, get into trouble with Mexico and reorgan ize upon a confederate basis. They have congress, and want the army. The question is not whet...

The rains east of the mountains up to this time have been more abund ant than usual, and there come re ports of splendid crop prospects.
