GRECEO AND TURKEY. Tle Smouldering Eastern Question Likely to Blase Up at Any Moment-Bis marok Still the Arbitrator-The Perilous State of Europe. ATHENs, April 29.-The Eastern question has again entered upon that series of kaleido schopic changes which in the days of the telegraph are the despair of co: respondents. I can tell you exactly what the political situation here is at this moment, but the only thing I can predict with certain ty is that it will be entirely different when this reaches you. If we believe the universal opinion of the diplomats, the question of the Greek frontier is us!tled, by the fact that the Turks have agreed to give up Thessaly, and the Greeks have agreed to take it ; and the Times and other leading organs of public opinion in England have committed themselves to con gratulatory articles in this sense. One would have supposed, with the experience or Dulcigno fresh in their recollection, they would have hesitated to take a sanguine view of negotiations whi...

PERSONAL AND IMPERSONAL, Sixty steamers on the Mississippi river use the electric light, and report it an important factor in precautions for safety. The Sultan of Turkey has pronounced the deposition of the Bey of Tunis. The French declare their intention to uphold him. France does not intend to occupy Tunis. The rich golden crown intended for the new king of Roumania has been declined by that monarch. He wishes a steel crown, made out of the cannon taken at Plevna. His sceptre is to be of the same material. The Governor General of Charkoff has is sued a proclamation forbidding the persecu tions of the Hebrews, and stating that the Hebrews, with all other faithful subjects of the Czar, are under protection of the laws. The Swedish government is becoming alarmed and contemplates legislation in view of the emigration, which is assuming the proportions of of an exodus. Several coun ties are partially denuded of able-bodied in habitants. The Lawrence (Mass.) American says that Samuel S...

FLOATING FANOIES. Thelily now is blowing sweet and pale, The weather's getting lovely for a sail, And in just a month or so, When the oleanders blow, The dog will have a kettle on his taiL Delilah was the first female barber, and got Samson where the hair was short. Once they started a girls' seminary in Utah. It flourished well ; but just in the hight of its prosperity the principal eloped with the whole school. Some females have just been arrested in Kentucky for the manufacture of illicit whisky. This is the first recorded instance of a woman keeping still. Falstaff asks, "What's honor ?" as though it was hard to tell. But let one woman sit behind another in church and she will tell what's on her in less than two minutes. The editor of the Hackensack Republican went to call on his girl, when he saw on the front steps a sign which said, "Bleware of the paint." He went away sighing, "I never before knew that she painted." A lady engaged to be married, and getting sick of her bargai...

WHAT MY LOVER SAID, By thelmerest chance, in the twilight gloom, In the orchard path he met me In the tall wet grass, with its faint perfume, And I tried to pass, but he made no room; Oh, I tried, but he would not let me! So I stood and blushed till the grass grew red, With my face bent down above it. While he took my hand, and he whispering said How the clover lifted its pink, sweet head, To listen to all my lover said! Oh, the clover in bloom! I love it. In the high wet grass went the path to hide, And the low wet leaves hung over, But I could not pass on either side, For I found myself, when I vainly tried, In the arms of my steadfast lover. And he held me there and he raised my head, While he closed the path befofe me; And he looked down into my eyes and said- How the leaves bent down from the boughs o'erhead Oh, the leaves hanging lowly o'er me. I am sure that he knew, when he held me fast, That I must be all unwilling! For I toied to go and I would have passed As the night was...

MONSTER FOSSIL ANIMALS. Some Specimens at the National Muse um at Washington. [New York Sun.] The new building that is soon to be thrown open to the public in Washington as the na tional museum is probably one of the finest in the world for the purposes of exhibition and investigation.. That the two terms, Na tional Museum and Smithsonian Institute, should cause confusion in the minds of many is not surprising, as to the visitor there is no visible difference; but the workings of the two institutions under the same roof are widely divergent, and the rapid growth of the one and the development of the resources of the other have necessitated a division. The functions of the National Museum and the Smithsonian Institute are entirely differ ent. The object of the former is the estab lishment of a collection of specimens, nat ural and artistic, which shall exhibit the re sources of the country, or present at a glance the material essential to a high civilization which exists in the diffe...

PERSONAL AND IMPERSONAL. It is said that in Cincinnati they propose to send a man to jail if he reads the Sunday papers on Sunday. The tunnel under the Hudson river, between New York and Jersey City, is being pushed at the rate of five feet a day. The Pacific Railroad syndicate has bought for $200,000 the line of of steamers running from Victoria, B. C., to Puget Sound. Negotiations are reported to have been begun by M. de Lesseps, for the construction of a canal through the isthmus of Corinth to the .Egean sea. The largest cotton crop the South ever pro duced was that of last year, which aggrega ted 6,250,000 bales, or about 2,000,000 more than the crop of 1860. Eighteen transatlantic steamship com manders have been indicted by the United States authorities for overcrowding their re spective vessels with steerage passengers, contrary to law.

BENTON AS A BUSINESS CENTER, The Enormous Stocks and Extra Quality of Goods on Sale-Every Line of Com mercial Enterprise Fully Represented. It's Superiority as a Purchasing Point Plainly Descernible. An examination of the stocks of goods and the business done by the various firms in Benton will disclose what our most sucf cessful business men concieve as the part Benton is to take in the commerce of the Territory, and the class of business they are catering to, more than any set of words can convey. Not only in the magnitude of stocks carried, but in their varied nature, their rich es, and the extremely low prices at which they are offered, they tell a story of a fu tuze that long exper:ence in the needs and knowledge of the resources of the country has shown will be prosperous. Our mer chants are vieing with each other as to who shall carry the most extensive and finest goods, and sell them for the least, and with a vim that is certain to make of Benton the most advantageous market...

TWILIGHT ON THE PRAIRIE., Beyond the level the sun is sinking, Leaving his train like a painted fan; Dim in the blue sky the twins are blinking Out at their golden-shod caravan. Over the prairie the twilight's falling, Gloomy and gray in the fading East, Mellow, the tones of the herdsman, calling The lagging cattle to leave their feast. Down by the seough, the startled plover Plaint'vely calls thro' the purple glow; The wild duck squadron seeks nightly cover Where the iris nods his plumed chapeau. The blue-cranes treading a stately measure, With outspread wings on the velvet knoll; The prairie-hen with her pearly treasure, Hides deep in the heart of a grassy stool. God's tigh Altars. (Corr. Chicago Times.] I cannot dismiss the scenery on the line of the Colorado Central railroad with a mere paragraph. The man who can travel in the charming month of May from Denver to Cheyenne without feeling in his inmost heart the majesty of that battle line of giants, known as the Rocky mountains,...

FLOATING FANCIES. Platt and I are out.-R. Conkling. The beauty is not as bright as she is paint ed. He must have a big spoon that would eat ice cream with a young lady. Judging from his name, Prof. Dragaman off would make a good policeman. As an orator Mr. Moody doesn't claw the air. He talks rapidly, and as offhand as a ranchman trying to swap horses. "No kiss ?" he said, pleadingly; "no kiss from my darling to-night ?" "No," she said emphatically, "no kiss; I hear that there is mumps in your family." Pretty girl--"How much is this a yard ?" Draper's son (who is desperate "spoons" on her)-"Only one kiss." P. G.-I will take three yards; grandma will pay you." An old angler says a fish does not suffer much pain from being hooked. Of course not. It is the thought of how his weight will be lied about that causes him anguish. "How could you think of calling Auntie stupid ? Go to her immediately and tell her you are sorry." Freddie goes to auntie and says : "Auntie, I'm sorry you are so ...

THE DERBY RAOES, A Grand Triumph Acohieved by Iroquois. LONDON, June 1.-For the first time since the Derby stakes have been run for, they have been carried away by, an American horse, and the whole world of London is ask ing itself to-night what it all means. At the meeting on Epsom Downs this afternoon, Mr. Pierre Lorillard's b. c. Iroquois snatched the victory from fourteen competitors, among which were some of the most famous horses on the English turf, covering the mile and a half of the course in 2:50, and winning by a good half length over the favorite, Per egrine, owned by R. W. Grosvenor. Many thousands of pounds were staked on the Eng lish horse, and those who had the courage or sagacity to back Mr. Lorillard's stables have taken fortunes from the pockets of the English turfmen. The betting yesterday against Iroquois was seven to one, and when a rumor was circulated to the effect that Fred. Archer, known as the "Demon Jock ey" on account of his numerous victories on the cou...

CROQUETERS ON THE CRISES. low the Politieal Sensation Struck the Femeuine Portli n of the Community. The night before last the Utica Croquet Club-composed entirely of young ladies held its second meeting for the year 1881. Two new members were admitted and two proposals for membership were made. The committee on resolutions made their expected report. The resolutions were written on scented paper and penned with violet ink. After the business of the evening had been finished the young lady sitting on the otto man suddenly exclaimed : "Oh, my ! Girls, did you hear about Conk ling ?" "No, what is it ?" said the four misses in one breath. "Why, he's resigned !" "Resigned to what ? Has he been danger ously sick ?" asked the secretary. "No, no. Can't you understan ? He has given up the Senatorship." 'Good gracious ! Ain't that too bad !" "How much did he get for it ?" queried the girl with an album in her lap. "Why you silly thing ; you ought to read the newspapers. Senator got dissatisf...

tPERSONAL AND IMPERSONAL. The Berlin police are expected to not only read every newspaper, but also every novel. The New York Indicator figures that the wheat crop will fall short of the yield of 1880 as much as 125,000,000 bushels. There were 642 houses burned by the re cent fire in Quebec. There are 1,211 fami lies and 6,028 individuals homeless and most ly without possessions. It is related of Prince Bismarck that nearly fifty years ago he laid a wager of twenty-five bottles of champagne with an American that Germany in his time, would be a un ited country. A New Hampshire former last fall put into a barrel of apples a letter, in which he asked the buyer to send him an answer. He has just received an answer from Birming ham, England. The Italian exploring party which started from Arsov Bay, Abysinia, consisting of a subaltern officer, ten sailors and four soldiers, have been massacred in the interior. The particulars are not known. Secretary Windom has expressed in an interview, ...

A Letter from Ft. leLeod. FORT M.LEOD, May 27, 1881 To the River Press: Since the first day of this month some start ling arrests have been made by the vigilan N. W. MI.:P. They have at last succ:eded in catching the Indian that killed the police man, Greyburn, at Cypress. His name is Star Child, a Blood, and he is a boy about 16 years of age. He will be almost sure to die, for the police have blood in their eye. They also took in two American chaps for stealing horses. The said horses were branded with the police brand, "M. P.," but they vented the brand with a ring. They are liable to go up for ten years. Col. A. G. Irvine and Capt. Cotton raid th s pl-ioe a visit sometime ago and af ter selecting a location for the new post on Pincher creek they returned with Col. Mc Leod to the Cypress mountains. The Cochrane cattle ranch is not creating much of a stir up to the present. They are offering such poor wages that they cannot obtain men. We have a great amount of Indians in this vici...

How Sarah Studlea. One of Sarah Bernhardt's most marked pr. culiarities, says a correspondent, is the man ner in which she is constantly, and almost unconsciously, experimenting with and studying her art, through even the most triv ial and insignificant incidents of daily life. Mrs. Siddons is said to have ordered a beef steak with an air of a tragedy queen, but the Bernbardt avails herself of every chance re mark or action to tent her ideas of natural ness and varise8mblance, and to watch the ef fect of her acting on others. For illustra tion, one night, when she was stopping at Mobile, the hotel servant who responded to her bell was astonished to behold the star start suddenly as he opened the door, turn pale, clutch a chair for support, and whisper h(a sely, though in very broken English, of course, "Great heavens, it is he! Quick ! Conceal yourselves in this cabinet!" fojlowt d by the hasty closing of a closet door. If this had occt r el at a hotel in Paris the waiter would have...

FLOATING FANCIES. The New Testament revisers appear to have discharged their paragraphist. Said Byron: "I hate a dumpy woman." Be meant to say that he hated to see a good thing cut short. A student at Oxford University on being asked who was Esau, replied : "Esau was a man who wrote fables, and sold his copy right for a mess of potash." "Here's a fly in my soup, waiter," "Yes, sir; very sorry sir; but can't you throw away the fly and eat the soup?" "Of course 1 can; you don't expect me to throw away the soup and eat the fly ?" An old couple from Hohokus were walk ing down Broadway the other day, reading sigrs, when they ran across one-"Johnson's Shirt Store." "Well I declare," said the old lady, "I wonder who tore it." A Yankee woman recently married a Chi nese laundryman, and in three days thereaf ter the unhapy celestial appeared at a bar ber's shop and ordered his pigtail to be cut off, saying, in explanation, "Too muchee yank." "Your husband is not in to-day, ma'am ?" said a col...
