WI LLIAMS, - - - - - - -- EDITOR THEY will not let poor Beaconsfield rest, now that he is dead. The Radicals are op posing a monument to his memory on the grounds that it is in nature too partisan to enter into the national sympathies. TaIE Missouri is 22 feet 8 inches higher than it has been for 37 years in Ray and La fayette counties, Missouri, which the tele graph says are being rapidly depopulated, and a fearful loss of property has ensued. One of the most difficult tasks the wood en graver has had to perform this year was to "plug" the campaign woodcuts of Hancock and English so that enterprising newspapers might palm them off as accurate portraits of the murdered Czar. THE balance of trade in favor of the U. S. from August 2d to April 8th, was $82,000, 000, or $10,000,000 more than during the pr...

A French Fire. [Puck.] There was a fire in Paris the other day. It destroyed a large dry-goods store called "The Printemps', and $1,600,000 worth of prop erty. It cannot be said that the Parisians are al together unused to fires. They had a pretty good supply during the brief reign of the Commune, and they occasionally have a little one now; but a million and a half dollar flare up is something quite unlooked for, and the means at their disposal for fighting such a thing are quite inadequate. Not that Paris hasn't pompiers enough for the business of extinguishing fires, but their appliances are not quite so extensive or as useful as they might be. The Parisian fire-brigade is a regiment consisting of 50 officers and 1690 men. The French are a military nation, and are inclined to carry their military methods into every thing they do. They never feel perfectly comfortable unless they have a sentry mount ing guard over something, if it be but a heap of dirt, and they make fires no exce...

THEOAVE OF ADELSBERG, An Fnderground Wonder of Southern Austria-The Weird imagery of its ;Maze of Dark Galleries-3-agic tChamlbers of the Subterranean WVorld-Stallactites of Unequal led Splendor and Caverns of Unknown Depth. [Cor. N. Y. Sun.] VIsNNA, March 13.-At last I have leisure to describe, so far as any description is possi ble, ray glimpse of the solitary natural won der which Southern Austria can boast-viz : the stalactite cave of Adelsberg. A night mare of Milan Cathedral turned upside down, or a glance at Gustave Dore's ghostly vision of the "frozen circle" of the Inferno, would convey a clearer idea of it than whole pages of high-flown word-painting. Though it possesses neither the mighty expanse of the Mammoth Cave of Kentucky, nor the delicate beauty of the Blue Grotto at Capri, every part of it is filled with-a stern and gloomy grand eur which is indescribably impressive. As early as your first starting from Trieste the enchantment begins. Curve after curve you wind yo...

Letter From Dr. Turner. It is said by some knowing one who pre fers to believe a lie rather than the truth, that Dr. Turner should sue somebody if he has been foully dealt with by a designing few. Handle them with the law, etc. is eas ily said, but not always so easily and success fully done, and if from the very obscurity of cases of conspiracy in general, it is obvious that it is not easily proved, even against the principals, let alone those who remain in the background and urge on others. I will state the facts and then let others judge of the case: Three different tribunals have I sought redress from, and advised with the prosecuting attorney, and am told by them all that while my case would be clear with the evidence I can produce, unfortun ately one of the conspirators would now be my best and chief prosecuting witness for subornation of perjury, blackmailing and conspiracy. She being guilty of open per jury in another case, the Grand Jury was prejudiced against her oath, and...

When steamboat passengers talk too much to the captain he can always find relief by shouting : "Man over-bored :" Chicago doctors spell so badly in their pre scriptions that the druggists go off to visit country relatives every time the grand jury meets.

NOOTURNE. The Thames nocturne of blue and gold Changed to a harmony in gray; A barge with ochre-colored hay l)ropt from the wharf; and chill and cold. The yellow fog came creeping down The bridges, till the House's walls Seemed cdanged to soadows, and Si. Pau_ Loomed like abubble o'er the town. Then suddenly arose the clang Of waking life; the streets were stirred With country wagons; and a bird Flew to the glistening roofs, and sang. And a, pale woman all alone, The daylight kissing her wan hair, Loitered beneath the gas-lamp's flare With lips of flame and heart of stone. THE END OF THE WORLD.

SUBSIDIES IN MEXICO. Serious Troubles Anticipated as a Re. suit of the Enormous Drain upon the Mexican Treasury. N Ew ORLEANS, May 4.-The Picayune, us ually~considered authority on Mexican affairs, anticipates trouble from the enormous sub sidies which her present rulers are granting to railway schemes, it being utterly impossi ble that she can meet the heavy drain on her treasury and resources, or that the people will remain quiet under the strain. At the lowest calculation, one hundred million dol lars are already granted railways, the Gould line from Laredo to the City of Mexico alone taking $20,000,000 out of the treasury within the next two years: Other subsidies swell the amount to $75,000,000 or $80,000,000 due before 1883. Where the money is to come from, with an average annual income of but $19,000,000 to meet $29,000,000 average an nual expenditures for the ordinary expendi tures of the Government, is a problem which it it is morally certain will speedily engage the attent...

LITTLE BLUE EYES. Or Why I Joined the Detectives. ",Can I sit with you ?" "Certainly, sir." "Nice weather ?" "splendid, indeed." "Crops growing finely ?" ,yes-couldn't do better." I was sitting in a car on a Wisconsin rail road one day, years ago, when a good-look jng, pleasant-spoken man come along, stop ped at my seat, and the above conversation took place, the latter part of it after he had taken part of my seat. Did you ever meet a man who, though a stranger to you ten minutes before, could wrest from you secrets which you had sworn to yourself never to reveal ? Well, he was such a man. It was not long before he com menced asking me questions. He did no seem trying to quiz or draw me out, but he asked me questions in such a sly, roundabout way, that before I knew it I was giving him my history. I was at that time just on the point of being admitted to the bar of Wisconsin as a student of Law & Law of Briefville. The firm were old lawyers with a lucrative prac tice, and it ha...

WASHINGTON NOTES. MONDAY, May 9. Black and Blackman, charged with de frauding the.government in mail contracts, were arraigned on Monday before the United States Commissioners, and were held in $5000 bail each. The Commissioner of Internal Revenue thinks the receipts will aggregate about $10, 000,000. This increase is due to the large production of cigars and cigarettes. It is stated that the Governor-General of Cannda will return to England after his Man itoba trip, resigning his position. Neither Gen. Mellikoff or Millentine will succeed the Grand Duke Michael. The Senate judiciary committee this morn ing resolved to report adversely the nomina tion of Stanley Matthews. The nomination will be accordingly reported in executive session. It is understood that Lamar favor ed the nomination. Of the rest of the com mittee Logan, Ingalls, McMillen, Davis and Bayard opposed, and Conkling and Garland were absent. The Republicans are working hard to pre vent the impending contest between Co...

Liars ? Well! well! that Buck, Hunt & Co. should be so prejudiced against one who is a gen tleman, which is more than they have shown themselves to be since as rattle-headed boys they assumed charge of the Record and pro ceeded to become dirty contemptible liars for a little more bread and butter, and hang on to the indictment they so becomingly gloat over of which I am quite well assured they did all they could to cause to be found, and themselves and a blessed few of their ilk are the only ones in the community that regret that the first false swearing was ever set at naught. You are a cowardly set at best and put your great trust in your numbers, whereby the personal res ponsibility could not be found. That Buck & Hunt, when they allowed, or wrote, or in timated that I opposed or voted in favor of removal of the military, knew personally, as they sat and stood next to me with no one intervening between us, and all that I said or did by voting was in favor of retaining the...

REVERIE, "N" for Nannie and "B" for Ben, I see them now as I saw them then, On the barl of the oak tree wed; She sat waist deep in the clover white, And the squid gold of the June sunlight Swept over her sweEt young head. And I stood carving the letters twain, That time and tempest has all in vain Striven to blur and blot; They live in the oak tree's dusky grain, Stamped as their memory on my brain, Changing, changing, and fading not. Oh! the vows that I vowed that day! Their broken shards in my bosom stay, Wounding it hourby hour; Could I be false to one so true! Dared I be cruel, my love, to you! Oh, Nannie, my lily flower? Ere the snow had whitened those letters twain, In the old church porch you bid your pain, As I and my bride passed by; Your eyes were brave, but your cheek grew white The cheek that I should have pillowed that night. Where it never now may lie. Litle Nannie, you are at rest, The buttercups growing over your breast, Close by the graveyard gate; But ah. I live to...

I COULDN'T. Alas, I'm in such sad disgrace ! I tried to pencil off her face, But couldn't. She kindly sat an hour the while, And archly faced me with a smile, She shouldn't.

He came in gently but firmly, and felt in his pocket for something. Finally he found what looked a little like an egg-beater and some like a new kind of speed indicator.
