The Republican National Conven tion ou the 6th inst., nominated James G. Blaine of Maine, to be • President. His vote was larger than the vote of any other candidate on the first ballot and continued to increase until the fourth, when Illinois transferred her vote to him quickly followed by other States and nominated him, giving him 544 votes of the 820 delegates. In the evening John A. Logan was nominated on the first ballot. Ar thur received the next largest number of voies as a candidate. The nomination of Blaine is a victory of the most radical wing of the Republican party. Men blackened by crime and infamy like Blaine himself, controlled the proceedings of the convention.

Teaching a Dog: to Read. Sir John Lubbock, the distinguished physicist, as we not lo:ig ago explained is trying to teach his dog to converse. It seems from a letter which Sir John sends to the hist number of Nature, that Vau, the dog, is making very satisfactory progress in his studies. He is, indeed, displaying such aptitude for learuiug that his master intends soon to put him into arithmetic. The method of instruction adopted is a very simple one. Sir John prints on pieces of card hoard, about ten inches long by three inches broad; as "food," "bone," "water," "out," etc. A number ol these cards are placed on the floor side by side, so that the dog Las several cards to select from, eacli bearing a different word. Van has now learned to distinguish between those cards, and to regard the bringing of a card as a request. For instance, "When he is hull grs he will bring a 'food' card time after time," says Sir John Lubbock, "until he has had enough, and then he lies down quietly, for a...

We give much of our space in this issue, to the letter of Mr. Tilden, giviug his reasons for declining the nomination as the presidential standard bearer of the Democratic party. Mr. Tilden being the almost unanimous choice of our readers as the candidate for the presidency, both by reason of their opinion of the eminent abilities and the purity of the man, as well because throngli him, they would like to see the great wrong perpetrated in 1876, righted,nothing that emanates from him can fail to in terest them. A perusal of the letter will strengthen their convictions, that he of all others is especially fitted to be our next PresiJ dent—it breathes a spirit of such lofty patriotism and in it there is so little of th 4 politician and so much of the statesman, tjat no member of the Democratic party can read it and fail to regret that "l...

Little Nations. While the tendency of modern times is to extend the boundaries of great countries—for Great Britain, Kussia, and the United States are steadily adding to their possessions—the fact remaius that some very small oountnes preserve their autonomy for long periods of time. For instance, the little republic of Andorra is a mere eagle's eyrie nestling up on the top of the Pyrenees. It is only a stone, as it were, to mark the boundary between France and Spain. This it has dope for a thousand years. It contains 12,000 people, who are said to be very primitive ftnd moral. It is governed by two Vignurs and twenty consuls. San Marino, another dwarf nation, is still smaller. It consists of, five small villages with 10,000 inhabitants, and is situated in Central Italy, San Marino dates back to the Diclerion persecution of the fourth century, when, as the somewhat legendary history has it, a pious stone-cutter by the nameof Marius and a few fellowchristians sought escape from marty...

When three years ago we first presented THE ENTERPRISE to the public, it was a seven column paper with few advertisements.— The needs of the business soon compelled us to enlarge to eight columns thus giving to our business friends four more columns, which we are glad to say have been kept crowded. The increase in circulation from a few hundred has been steady until with-this issue we send out 1608 copies. The heavy demand upon time made by this constant growth compelled us more than six months ago to abandon our lever press, for a power—thus economizing time and labor. We are prepared to make further additions to meet greater increase of business, and offer an office furnished to do the best job work to our friends.

Chewing the Cud. Every child in the country has stood and watched this curious operation, and wondered what the lunjp was which he saw come upin the cow's throat, and then go down again after she had chewed it for a certain length of time. And per-/ haps he may the anxiety and turmoil produced on a farm l/y the report that some one of the cows had "lost her cud," and as the result of this excitement he may have seen the absurd attempt to ••make a new cud," iu the hope, that the cow would by such means be restored to good condition. There is in the minds of a large propor tion of the readers of the Scientific American (which simply means the community) so little correct under standing of the nature oi "chewing the cud," that a few words concerning it may not be amiss. A very large tribe of animals, of which sheep and cows are only familiar examples, are called in works of natural history Jiuminantia because they all ruminate, they chew the cud. They do so because their peculiar organ...

Anecdote of Washington Irving:. Many years ago—in fact, back in the forties—Dr. Grant, of Enfield, whose reputation as a physician in Connecticut is still in the memories of the first rank, alter years of retirement from practice, was traveling in South Carolina, his native state, going by stage from Savannah to Augusta. At a certain stopping place it was found that there were more passengers than the stage could carry, and an extra w.\s ordered for the accommodation of five passengers. These passengers were John Forsyth, of Georgia, John Branch, postmaster-general, GeorgeMcl)ufOe,of South Carolina, Dr. Grant and an unknown gen tleman. The party soon became talkative, and by degrees all knew who each one was, with the exeep tion of the one silent stranger. As the stage creaked along, the attention of Dr. Grant, who was a lad n't that date, was attracted by a little dog following die stage, which rein inded him of one described by "Washington living in Astoria, which he had just been...
