The salmon fisheries are very productive, and tlie yield of furs is far surpassing the ex pectations or those who gave attention to the matter at the time of the purchase. The London (Stole has lately published the re sults of ome inquiries made by an English man familiar with those regions, which lead that newspaper to the conclusion that our government in purchasing Alaska made a bargain in everyway creditable to that Yankee shrewdness which is supposed to animate all our public transactions. It appears that two of the Aleutian islands St. Paul's and St. George's, alone rent to the Alaska Commercial Company for 55,000, and that a tax of three dol lars is paid to the treasury of the United States on every seal skin which is carried away from the islands the number being about a hundred thou sand a year. ...

Henry Ward Beecher, and that shortly after she resuscitated her defunct "YcekIy" for the sake of repeating in print the same indecent accusations. It was for this pub lication, and others lite it in the same num ber, that Mrs. Woodhull was indicted on the charge of printing and publishing obscene literature, and shut up in Ludlow street jail for a number of weeks, till she finally procured bail. As long as this slander was confined to the utterances of a woman whose trade was, by common report, blackmail, when it was not something worse, the charges found no credence among resectable people, and most of...
