" A MiS FISH." TljaCarlaua Affliction al' a Tall Backwoods mail from Tennessee. A blunt time since the Tennessee and Kentnsky newspapers contained start . ling ncoonnt of a wild man lately captured, with great difficnlty, in the Onmbcrland mountains. He was six feet ten inches high, extraordinarily fleet of foot, and excessively savage. He ioa chiefly on raw fish, which he cap tured without artificial aid. He spent much of his time in the water, and after being captnred Jbe had to be frequently bathed. He was covered with shining scales, like those of a fish. His hands and feet were webbed like the feet of water-fowl so the newspaper acconnts. with many embellishments, ran. It is scarcely necessary to say that much of mis utoiy was only showman s talk. uttered to attract the attention of the ourioua and credulous public. j.ne pnysicians of Ijouisville were invited to visit the monster upon his ar rival in the city, prior to his general exhibition.

The call Is for $20,000,000. Pennsylvania's State Treasurer re ports that the public debt December 1 was $21,680,200, having been reduced during the fiscal year $1,008,193. The wife of a farmer of Norfolk county, Virginia, named Ilyslop, was on Saturday frightened to death, being chased by a horse while out in a field. It has been suggested that Presi dent Hayes Would perhaps dissapoint all applicants for the Berlin mission by transferring Kasson from Vienna to Berlin. This would be a promotion for Kasson, and, as the Vienna mission Is not so much sought after, it would not be so difficult to All it. It Is said at the State Department, Washington, that the Mexican Gov ernment has made arrangements for the payment of the third installment three hundred thousand dollars of the indemnity to American citizens, due th...

FABM, GARDES AKD HOUSEHOLD Orchard aad Oardea Note. In making selections (or an orchard, the question should not be, What are the best varieties ? but what are the best grown in yonr locality. If there are any frnit-gTowera in the neighborhood, get their experience. If one is in a new country, where information of this kind cannot be obtained, the next best is the opinion of a nnrseryman of good reputa tion. For family use, the orchard should contain varieties from the earliest to the latest, the greater number of trees being of good keeping kinds. For market fruit, the selection will depend npon whether the market is near at hand or the frnit is to be shipped to a distance. One near a town will find showy early apples, which do not keep long or transport well, morn profitable than later kinds. Protect young trees from large ani mals by oare of fences and gates. Trap or shoot rabbits; smearing the trunks with blood or raw meat of any kind will keep them off. If cions have not been c...

Hie Jul wjlte. Henry A. Parson, Jr., Editor THURSDAY, JANUARY 23, 1870. A bill to tax church property is before the Illinois Legislature and is likely to be passed. It Is a curious fact developed by the last New York census that there are in that State over 12,000 families living in log cabins. It is averred that a five-cent nickel costs only a cent and a quarter, and that they were legalized only for the benefit of the owners of a New Jersey nickel mine. . Governor Porter, of Tennessee, ays in his message, and every good citizen of that State will say amen, that jail breaking and lynching must be put a stop to by the prompt enforce' nient of the law. A candidate for the Lientenant- Governorshfp of Kentucky is eulogized as "the man who put one hundred and thirty-six bills through the Senate In one night, and let 'the boys' out before the barrooms closed." The governor of Montana, in his message, says he has an offer from a responsible person to take the entire bonded debt of the ter...
