We do not want the name for publicatio&j bat we must know the real name of a person sendins us a commniucationi Tbe wheat crop this year, according to the returns of the department of argicul-tnre, are thirty-one million bushels greater than last year. Bnt we may prudently be modest in boasting of that fact as it is offset by the further fact of decrease of the yield per acre. That is, we have augmented onr wheat product by adding to the number of acres under cultivation but we have not, in this, blessed mankind " by makinc two blades, grow where formerly only one grew." This shows that we cannot always grow wheat for export, and we must more and more cultivate varied industries if we would attain the greatest possibilities ot national wealtB. Aha-a! Now we have it! "Revenge is sweet" and it is ours. For years and years the Atlanta Contliiution has gone on heaping up obloquy and one thing and another on the republican party and unreleniingly placing the blame on The Hawkeyk Time has its retributions. One of the ed tors of our esteemed contemporary, Mr. Joel C. Harris, who writes those quaint, unique and always intensely fascinating pen sketches of negro character, is abont to publish in book form " Uncle Bemns: His Songs and His Sayings," including "Tbe Folk Lore of the Old Plantation. B to be profosely illustrated from designs by Mr. Frederick Church and Mr. James H. Moser, and every member of The Havtkeye editorial staff ia to be supplied with a copy 0/ the book with the author's autogiapb. This latter remark may bo somewhat in-teijectory, irrelevant and premature, hat it aone the h s� important " Uncle Remus " bae become a national character. His sayings have gone up and down the land until they are familiar in every honaehold. His " Folk Lore," in our jndgment, ia one of the very best of con temporary contributions to English literature. It opens a new field in the literary world,and is as enchanting os new. Toe book will be issued by D. Appleton & Co. on the 20th instant, and we predict will have a wide sale on both continents. TTe idvise every reader of The Hawkeite to bay a copy. Leastwise none of our copies will be loaned. is three huiTdred thonsand dollars. A Fpecial dated at 4 a. m. says: The scenea of the burning of the south winn were heartrending. Bo appaling a sixht has rarely been witnutaed, and I trust may never be again. Many patients refused leave tho building at all. They ran and down the halls screaming crying and acting like bedlamiied They were, of course, those who could not be coaxed nor forced out of tbe bailding and became the unhappy victims of the flames and suffered a horrible death. Others were eaved bj ladders and some by leaping from windows. Some were nearly nude, some shoeless and hatless, and all were exposed to the exceeding cold of the night Many of the poor., denlented and cmzed inmates d passage of | boats after JJecember 1, had escaped the flames, were large, half clothed, and were to be seen in all directiooF, flying in wild fright from those who at tempted to save ibem. The air was bitt cold, aad the poor wretches, with half naked bodies and bleeding feet, were flying about, biding in allies and dark places. The flames spread very rapidly il-om the basement; filiiqg tue halls completely will srookej and making it impossible to do any thing at saving the inmates of the nortli wind only by putiiog np ladders and prying off the fire serenes from the doors, taking them out and actually bringing them down in tbeir arm: without clothing iu many cases, while tbe other windows there were three four begging to be saved from death, whil9nt to New York this week. RIFLES FOE lEELAND. London, N.�v. 16.-A dispatch from Bros sels says there is good reason to believe i that eight thousand, rifles were shipped ' riceotly, at several Italian ports, for Ire^ land.

Lohdim Nov. 16-A di.-ipatch from Bol-Hnrobe says the eom'raander of the troops thete has bien ordered tn be ready to proceed at a moment's notice. TUE EEIDtSH GEAIlf TEADE. London, Nov. ig.-The Mark Lane EX' \presa ih its rfeview of the Briti.'jh grain trade, toys: " The weather has been mild but rainy, and alfC2*ither a large proportion of the wheat sowing Kas been accomplished under very favorable dfcam-ataaces. Deliveries of Emilish wheat show a very indifierent cooditton. Good samples of English red sold comparatively readily. Values have been relatively highef in tbe provinces than in London. At the beginning of tbe week prices were higher in mafly of tbe provincial markets, but the tendency wfis weaker at the closA. Inferior samples were heavy, and the same may be said otToreign wheat. Floating cargoes of America;n improved from nine pence to one shilling Tuesday and \^edilefiday,- and �ast India one ahil-liog ; hut Ut the tloae of the week American had logs thS advance and the cargo trade was nominally rfeaket. English Great Excitement Uver a Darlns; Bobbery. Galveston, Nov. 16.-A special to the Ddllas News says: This city wag thrown 'oto great, excitement hy the arrival of a quad of forty armed faimers bringing in too body of a dead man, and recounting rhe boldest robbery ever eoacted in thit. section. Marion Johnson, a planter, was met twelve miles from hereby two masked men and knocked down and robbed. Be-mg overtaken by a party in pursuit he joined these, and fivo other farmers were met ^ho had also been robbed Hud they all joined in tho pursuit, and the outlaws were overtaken within ibree miles of this city, where a general tifibt occorred. One robber, recognized as � Corley," of Nashville, Tennessee, was killed. The other escaped, carrying eighteen bucbabot in his body. Eleven farm ers are known to have been robbed. Bo'L he men are thbuKht to be implicated in he robbery of the Adums'and Leonard's bank recently. CRIMINAL -MATTERS. Rmbr'zzlement by Boston's City Cashier. Boston, Nov. 16-The official report of ,he investisation committee which has leen examining the aecounta of the de-t'auliiug city cashier, Woodward, places he total amount of the defalcation at 589 2:14. It is also shown that when �vVooLiward was promoted from a clerkship 'o tbe cashier's posiiion in August lSi5j bis accounts were short 54,879. The cooj' >nictce finds neglect on the part of the treos' arer to perdonally examine Woodward's acconnts which gave Woodward his oppor tuniiieit, and while expressing confidence m the treasurer,*holds him responsible for the amount stolen. HOUTICAL MATTERS. The Omolal Vote of California for Presidential Elcctrtrs. San Francisco. Nov. 16.-Full oiBcial re-ruros of the state show that Henry Edger-�ed fooEaod ankle. Bat this is nob all. The features of tbe child's face were perfectly pftrirayed with the exception that there was tbe harelip which had so frightened the moihera few months before. When she learned the affliction from Which she had been saved she was truly grateful. The physician who atttended her prevailed npon her to allow him to preserve the fetua, and he atillhasit to prove the mostwonderfnl la-atance of double malformation knowntothe whole medical world. Wereferto Dr.G. T. Herren, of 601 Freeman avenue, where the fetus waa seen andatndied by the reporter who pens these lines, and who knows every one ot them to be noihing hut the' absolute truth. The fettered bands, the liall severed ankle* the hare-lip, all were there, anbstantiating the truth of tho strange story. This event occurred somo yearsago,hut the mother still livea in a. city not far from here, where she has borne another child.and this one in natureVown way. The inatances are common where moth' ers, frightened by fire, bear their children marked with a blood-red dash npon their . faces or bodies, never to be effaced; bnt the idea of an occurrence such aa the one related in the above recital would be langhed at in derision had not one seen and heard for himself. Many a physician has examined the child, but the wondera and jnys-teries of nature are beyond the scope ol man's unraveling. Above it all the lesson should be given of the delicate treatment which woman deserves and the care which she should receive in these great periods of her life. When the '* boy- fish " were here last spring some of Cincinnati's physicians advanced the theory that their mother had been frightened by an alligatot This was the way they accounted, for the |>ecu1iar formation of the scaly "substance" which took the place of skin upon their bodies, A Story From Paris. During the last year I waa in Paris I beard a very pretty atory. A party of merry, bright-eyed American girls were at � window looking on to a court-yard. Soon a seemingly old man owed the yard. " That's tho marquis of X" aaid one of the girls. " He lives io a garret of the hobse and livea by giving French lessons " " I'll begin lesaons with him tomorrow, then," said one of tbe youngest girls. And she did so. She soon perceived that her master was one of the . moat polished men aha had ever met He waa not over thirty. Want and grief alone had bent him into premature old age, for he had an aged and sick mother to keep, which his earnings could not always do. What did our little American girl do? She quietly proposed to marry .the marquis. I need not tell yoa how readily he accepted. This is the happiest mar-riaee between a poor French nobleman and a rich American girl that I know of. I can give tbe numt>er of tbe house and tbe street where the first act oftfae'com-edy took place. The marquis walks now as straight aa any one, and the dowager marchioness may frequently be seen at the Buis sitting by tbe side of ber brilliant danghter-in-Iow, whom she worships, as ' well she may;_ wintry Weather. Deadwood, Dtfc., Nov. 16.-A terrifio atorm of snow and wind has been raging thronghout the hills for the post two days. The weather is intensely cold. The thermometer is fom d^rees below zero.
