Si enormous is the world's supply of silver that the amount to be used for our coinage makes no impression on the price.

The Russian army is iv possession of the whole of European Turkey, is for tifying Callipoli, and in a very short time can successfully resist all English encroachments if any should be at tempted. A Congress of European powers will soon meet to contain the peace, and England will probably re fuse to join it, but her say is of no eon sequence now, in or out of a Congress, and Russia is having things pretty much her own way all round.

Love's Queen. BY WILLIAM WINTER. He loves not well whose love is bold! I would not have thee come too nigh. The sun's gold would not seem pure gold I niess the sun were in the sky: Tstake him thence and chain him near, Would make his beauty disappear. Ue keeps his state—do thou keep thine, And shine upon me from afar! So shall I bask in light divine That falls from Love's own guiding star So shall thy emluence be high. And so my passion shall not die. But all my life shall reach its hands Of lofty longing toward thy face. And be as one who srpeechless stands In rapture at some perfect grace. My love, mv hope, my all, shall be To look to heaven and look to thee. Thine eyes shall be the heavenly lights; Thy voice shall be the summer breeze, What time it sways, on moonlit nights, The murmuring tops of leafy trees; And I will touch thy beauteous form In June's red roses, rich and warm. But then thy self shall not come down From that pure region far above; But keep thy throne aud wear th...

Prevention of Aninml Nlttlti. Tho Now York Timet takes up the mbjeot of the prevention of disease In •nimitlH, anil given Dome valuable hints worthy of the attention of all live stock owners. Alter alluding to the wide dam age caused by disease, the article says: There is no doubt that tbe losses of •heep, swine aud cattle, that might be prevented by proper precaution! and care, amount to one lifth of the whole value of these classes of stock. One hundred million of dollars yearly would not more than cover these losses. The greatest misfortune is that much disease is spread by infection and contagion among herds and lloeks that would other wise escape. Animals are subject to all the dangerous influences which affect the health of human beings.
