Yis&ngtke P fe. The follo wing is the etiquette observed when, the Pope receives visitors: After passing through the ante-chambers, you are intro- duced tothe Pope's presence. His Holiness sits at the end of the room, under a canopy, on a small throne, raised one stop from the floor, in mi arm-chair of velvet and gold, with a writing table before him. Yon kneel at the door, again in the middle of the room, and a third time just before you reach the throne. The Pope presents his foot, and you kiss the white slipper where a gold eross is placed. You remain kneeling un- til his Holiness motions you to rise. To men of the world the sign is made instantly, and the conversation takes place standing. To religious persons, monks, and even secondary prelates, the sign to rise is frequently not made at all, and they speak Krhile slill kneeling. Some high personages also speak with the Pope while kneeling: M. de Merode always, though so intimate *sth Pius IX, There is nothing extraordinary...

DAILY MERCURY SATURDAY - JULY 19, 1873. We are informed by Mr. J. G. Andrews, Southwestern agent of the Atlanta and New Orleans Short Line, that the passenger rates were reduced yesterday via the Gulf and New Orleans to all points east from Houston, Austin, Waco, and points fh the interior. Andrews is the representative of a lightning line and is a lightning agent. Although his company sends "sleepers" over the line every n^ght no sleepers are em- ployed. A paying sleeper .can, however, enjoy himself in the Morpheus arms of Pullman, via Atlanta to Lynchburg, without change—we mean, of course, with- out change of cars. The Nashville Union and Amer- ican heads an article with "Be Temperate To-day." In Nashville no newspaper with a regard for its popularity dare propose such a radical reform for more than one day. * v '• I s During the last six months Cali- fornia has gained by immigration a population of 34,416, including 12,000 from China and Japan.

DAILY MERCURY TUESDAY JULY 22, 1673. The Colombia (S.C.) Union-Her- ald, discussing Gen. Grant's suc- cess as a statesman, says: "Count ns in for a third term by an over- whelming rote." , In £ngland, recently, atrial was made of what is claimed to be an nnsinkable boat. It is made of boiler plate, shaped somewhat like a flask, air being supplied through tubes. The boat upon which tie trial was made is capable of hold- ing sixteen people, and is fitted up with lockers, seats and table. The experimental trial is said to have been successful. f Texas will supply the mines of New Mexico and Arizona with - beef, corn, bacon and vegetables exchanging them for gold am silver. The mines on the 32d parallel have long been known to be rich in gold and silver, but there has been no means of bring- ing them into market on account of the hostility of the Indians, and their remoteness from railways. These objections are now fast fading away. In a couple of years more the railway will be built, a...
