TUESDAY EVENING, MAY 2, 1871 Street Sprlnkllnst Viewed In is Sani tary Mght. WIT FILTH MORE DELETERIOUS AHD PEB- TirKROtTS THAN DRY—OTHERWISE AN ANNOTANCE AND NUISANCE. We present to-day an article from the pen of an eminent physician of Rochester, New York, on street sprinkling. The views of our gifted correspondent are new here, but are the fruit of profound and in telligent investigation aided by observation in all parts of the world: It is only a few years since the first rickety sprinkling cart was seen in our oity. For several seasons the institution barely survived, and ventured to convey its supposed bene6ts only a little way from Aqueduct street. Now its numerous prog eny are finding their way into every con siderable avenue of the city, bringing to the inhabitants, it is to bo feard, evils much greater than the augmentation of taxes levied against thousands, and with out consent. It is worth while to inquire into the utility of this method of contend ing with the evils of ...

[ The Alabama Claims Treaty.—The , publication of the leading features of the | treaty between Great Britain and the 1 United States), which is to be submitted to 1 the Senate on the 10th instant, has created a great deal of excitement among Senators now in Washington, according to the state ments of the correspondent of the Phila delphia Press. He says there seems to be a strong feeling against that part of the treaty which recognizes the so-called Eng I Hah claimß as an offset to tho Alabama i claims. These English claims are general ly for property seized or destroyed in the South by the Union army during the war. The majority of tho Senators are of opin ion that the owner* of these claims were generally in sympathy with the rebellion, and did all they could to aid and abet it. In i borne respects the...

®\mim iftatr f aurna! THURSDAY EVENING, MAY 4,1871 The Complaint of I.nlior Against Cap ital. Labor asserts that under tho present condition of affairs it is deprived of a!! its rights. The free use of tha means which nature has so bountifully supplied for making it productive are denied it. Capi tal monopolizes tho land and the sea. It wrests the land from the tiller, and en grosses the trade between nations. It mo nopolizes the business s>f the world, aDd forces Labor into its service, at its own terms. By monopolizing the land and ex torting unrighteous ronts, it prevents men of small means from engaging in business. The great fortunes of the world are built out of the labor of others, thus proving that tho laborer does not get the righteous profit of his labor. The idle, the extravagant, non-producers of all sorts are supported by the hard toil of men who are daily robbed to support these parasites. All these injustices labor com plains of, and demands to havo removed ; but t...

Bryau, of Silver Hill, Mary laud, brought a. very interesting subject before tho association in the shape of a new beetle in the family curculionidrv that he had discovered, and which has proved a very destructive inbect. He noticed that his strawberry blossoms were drooping in many places and rapidly turning brown. An examination showed this insect at work in large numbers—they sting the stem just below tho flower. His earliest strawberries were injured most, being the Wilson's Albany. In some places two-thirds of the blossoms were de stroyed. Professor Glover, of the Agricultural Department, bad not met this pest, and was highly pleased in gotting a specimen for study, a...

Now, how ever, because a correspondent of a North ern Democratic paper has exhumed the speech, and because ho reports it to contain a few good pro-Southcin ideas, the General is being lauded to tbe skits by the friends of tho Ku-Klux, and tho enemies of tho Republican party, some of their papers even going so far as to nominate him for the next Presidency.

dMttittfl J. tat* journal BRIDAY EVENING, MAY G, 1871. AORICULTCRB at HDRTICTJLTVRK Deep vi Shallow Plowing. The agricultural papers of the country have for years been discussing the ques tions of deep and shallow plowing and tbe level or ridging process of cultivation.— The misfortune is that many of the opin ions advanced come from men with no ex perience in farming, and their ideas are beautiful in theory, but prove false in practice; and ag3in, the mistake is made that their plans are susceptible of general adoption, when only particular localities are suitable for their application. Upon our river low grounds and rich al luvial bottom lauds, deep plowing will answer and no doubt prove of great advan tage, but practice proves that upon onr tbin highland farms, where the soil is about as thick as a case knife, deep plow ing does not answer. New grounds, just cleared of timber, when ploughed never do well ; whereas, if the soil is scraped np into a hill about tho siza of a man's h...

Little people have been delighted with fairy stories ever since fairies were thought of, but I can tell you something far more wonderful than your fairy stories, and true, besides, which makes it more in teresting. If you think small peoplo two or three Inches high are amusing, what would you think of a little creature so small as barely to be seen by the naked eye ; so small, in deed, that he and thousands of others havo pleuty of room to live, and grow aud travel around in a tiny puddlo of wator ? And what sort of a house would you think such an atom of a thing could build ? What if 1 should tell you that he can build a brick house : that he selects from the water in which he lives the neces sary materials, shapes them in a mould which he has in his body, and piles up a regular bouse for himself?
