Difficulties Encountered by Stanley. Stanley's narrative gives us a vivid idea of travel in Africa under its best conditions; that is to sav, through a country fairly known, which has been visited by white men, mid is now tra versed by frequent caravans. Some times they crossed "broad and bleak plains, where food was scarce and cloth vanished fast," anil sometimes they came to hilly countriis, where the people were civil and hospitable. Sometimes they were in troublesome districts; where there were warring tribes, where the people were treacher ous or hostile, ami then Stanley could only sleep with his hand on his rille. There were furious tempests, "and some days nature and man alike warred against us. while on other' j both seemed combined to bless us." Other troubles came to the intrepid j commander and his small army, ' more especially that potent and j untiring enemy of all African travel typhus. This vas the enemy who me liunced Stanley at Zanzibar, and never left his footstep...

Caught by Bandits. Sig. Egitlio Sarconi, deputy vice chancelor in the ministry of grace and justice, set out from Rome about tho middle of August last to enjoy his month's holiday lit Corleto Perticara, a hamlet in the Basilicata, and about half a day's journey south of Potenza, tho chief town of the province. His family li.id preceded him thither, and in his eagerness to join it with the least delay possible he stayed no longer in I'o tenzii thf.n to hire a vehicle, accepting, infact, the first that offered itself. On ho went, anticipating tho joyous re ception in store for him, ami—high legal functionary as ho was—thinking nothing of tho law and as little of its breakers, when suddenly, some six miles from Potenza, he was roused from liis reverie by two gruff voices bidding the driver pull up. Presently two sinister faces appeared at the win dow; two ritles wore leveled at him; and ho was told to alight immediately. Unarmed himself, with no assistance near him for miles around, an...

Gen. Grant in China. ]>v authentic information received at Sin "Francisco by the last steamer from China it would appear that thero is a probability that one result of General Grant's visit to China may be a settle ment of the vexed question of Chinese immigration, and thus much evil be averted tr> our Pacific Coast It is said certain propositions have j been made through him to the United States Government by high officials of the Imperial Government, that offer means of settlement without a new treaty. To explain this fully, it is neces sary first to narrate certain facts regard ing the Government of China that not all arc acquainted with. The present Emperor of China is an infant of about five years, under the care of two women, that may be called the Empress Mother and the Empress Dow ager of former Emperors. As nearly as can be explained to foreigners— these two old women may be said to ret as Regents during the minority of the child. The Prime Minister, who has been in p...

The argument is that the people In the down Sound counties arc greatly <>i>- prosnod l>.v being compelled to go to Olympla to attend to land business, and therefore something must be done.

Washing the Hair. Those who wash the rest of their body often neglect the head; the practice of smearing it with oil almost universally prevail:.. Tho Easterns do the reverse —they shavo it. A greater comfort there cannot 1# than a bald pate. Washing tlio head is in no way prejudi cial Unless you wash the head, the washing of tho body is neither complete nor satisfactory. The refreshment of washing the head may often be procured when it is impossible to wash the body. Soap and water are injurious, not to the hair, but to the hairdressers. The men of tho East have no hair to show; but if soap and water injure the hair, whence comes the luxuriant abundance of that of the women f The hair of tho head, like the fur of animals, is made to bear rain and wind, and to he a protection against them. You cover it up. The fur of animals thickens and straightens when exposed to air and wet. Your hair falls oft", end you oil it. If it grows weak, ohange its habits. If it is not washed, and if it ...

The Oregonian should he more particular and state how the waters of Huron climb into Brie, and it should also state whereabouts in the straits of Mack inn w the waters of Lake Michigan drop off 232 feet into Lake Huron.
