'I ho stomach may bo laboring hard to digest your dinner, your kidneys may be �weak, also your liver, your bowels may bo constipated, you may be startled by somo bad ruiws, or stirred up by worrying over money matters or family cares. You Iiavo always overworked yoursystora and your general nervous system is debili tated. The pain in a sympathetic headaoho is neur.algic in character, shoots about in your head, occurs mostly at night and in tho early moniing. There is ofteii dizziness. The treatment, of course, is to look carefully at the condition of the stomach and other organs, try not to worry, breathe pure air, have pleasant surroundings and tououp tho general system with tonics.

You are probably con.stipatod habitually, and your stomach rebels at somo of tbo kinds of food that you are particularly fond of. You cannot oat this, nor that. Tho pain comes on in tho morning, there is a fearful pressure in your head, you feel sick, you want to be by yourself and you cannot bear any noise. As soon as the stomach is emptied you feel relieved. One of the main lines of treatment Is to evacuate tho stomach and bowels. You ought always to haxe a free movo-mont of the bowels once a day. It may be that there is a Dositivo cause for the constipation. If there is, it must bo attacked and removed. ^ For iramoaiate relief Roohelle salts the first thing in tho morning ia a useful remedy. Another is tho tincture of rhubarb, phosphate of soda, five to 10 grains, with or without Vicliy .water. Appolinaris water might be kept In the house, blue pill 10 to 15 grains.

Tho fh-emen still continue their interest in The Globb contest, and from the number o� coupons that havo come in the past week it is evident that "tlio cause is still progressing." Gapt, Martin of engine 7 is still in tho load, although Gapt, "Atty" of the Waltham steamer is making him hustle. Steamer 15, steamer 1 of Quhioy, and the Torrents of Hingham are making n desoer-ate struggle for tho lead. Gapt. Crrady of truck 3, also chief of the pompier ladder service, must certainly look witli favor on the now improved folding scaling ladder. Which has just been introduced in all Western cities. The difficulty by reason of tliolr length, of carrying the pompiers, except on ladder trucks, has to some extent stood in the way of adoption in this city. This objection has now been met by the production of tlio patent folding pompier. These ladders are made of Norway iron, and the folding part of steel aud gtm metal. Thoy are tested to carry 800 potmds. They are no heavier than our pompiers, a 12-foot ladder weighing 24 pounds. As Gapt. Grady oon.sidors a 12-foot ladder qtuto suflioiont for offeotivo sorvioo, so it will bo seen that the now device v.'hon folded is but seven feec long, and can be carried on hoso wagons aiid chemical ou-gines. Tho advantage will ba that ovory piece of apparatus can be equipped with a sealing ladder. Of the hundreds of pompiers now in use not one v?(is over known to break. Brockton's fire appropriation has given out. Gardner has a now fire alarm telegraph. Chief Co email ot Tamiton expended all but S200 of his appropriation this year. Nevi' Bedford and Fall liiver firemen will send delegates to tho next meeting of tho Veteraiia' League in this city, Gapt. Williamson of tho salvage corps, has again declined the ollice of chief engineer of tho Worce.'itor fire don-irtincnt. Cambridge has ordered a first size Amos-koag engine. It will bo of the latest pat-torn, German silver jacket, improved now pumps and painted in ultra marine blue �ndtli gold stripes. Supt. Endicott proposes to make the engine of his life, whicli surely moans that it will eclipse anything over turned out at his shoi), not exoepting tho one recently sent to Concord, N. H. The recent disaster by tire at Nashua, N. H., has caused the business men oC that city to note tlio fact that thoy are far behind the age in modern fire service and that somo-thing must bo done to improve it. A firat-class engine, Hayes truck and 10,000 feet of hose are wanted, .and it behooves Chief �\Vhitueytomakoknown his wants to Mayor-elect Boasoin in order that ho may include tho roeominendatlon in his inaugaral. The business men of Brockton, like those in i\io Gr.anite State, domoud bettor fire protection. Tbo city owns three Sllsby and and one Anioskcag engines, of which three are bunched in one house and tho other at Gainpello. At a recent firotwo engines wero dlsnliled, leaving but oiio second-class ougino in tho city projior. Had a fire occurred the loss would have been oiior-inous. If Ghiot Eaton cannot get enougli apparatus the public and press will not blame him lor iiisuihoieut iire protection.

Is Ella Wlieeler Advice. Wilcox's Critical Pcrioi! is That Between tlie Sclioolroom and tiio Altar. . Oaustio Leoture to Girls Who Are Over Dressed and Under Trained. FTEN the most memorable time in tho life of a woman is that period which lies between the schoolroom and the altar, writes Ella Wiieolcr AVilcoxfWn Homo �Journal. It is tho time toward which every schoolgirl look �n'ith eagerness, and to which many f mature woman casts a backward glance o regret. It Is tho hope-laud of youth, the memory-land of age. To the American girl e-speolally is it a harvest season of pleasure. Allowed greater liberty than her foreign sisters, she is not obliged to marry to find fifeedom, and a longer girlhood prevails as a oonsequenoe. When the girl enters the world after her education is "finished" she does not always find it what she expected. The schoolroom is one thing, Che world another, , She may have been popular with her teachers heoauso she was a diligent scholar, and carried- off the honors of the school But she finds that book knowledge does not make her popular or successful socially. Some of tho most intellectual people havo known have been among the most disagreeable. A woman whose intellect Is aggressive, who parados hor knowledge bo-fore those of inferior iutolloot ot education, ia an object to be dreaded. Mere learning in a woman is never ot-traotivo. It is, on the contrary, offensive, ttnlesa coupled with feminine graces. School learning should sink mto the oharaoter and deportment, and only exhibit itself as the nerf ume of a flower is oxhibited-in a subtle, nameless and unobtmsivo manner. A woman's knowledge of grammar shomld not make hor talk like an orator In d&ily lif e-i t should simply make her conversation gracious and agreeable. Mathematics should render her mind clear, and her judgments true; her 200-graphical studies' should toaoh her that the world is too small for falseness to find a hiding place; and history should Impress upon her that life is too short For trmwovtlxy Aniliittons. The timo bet^voon tho school-room and tho altar should bo not n mere liar-vest-tlmo of pleasure, but a sowing-time for all tho seeds of kindness and self-saorifloo for others, and of unselfishness and henavolence, which alone can make her a successful wife and mother. Tho young lady who comes out of school realizing wliat an e.xponse her education has been to hor parents, and resolves to repay them in aocrifioiug sonic pleasures for their sake, and strives by self-denial and obeerfnlnoss to lighten their burdens, that young lady Is seldom found later iu life in tho divorce courts, a martyr to marital incapability. The good and thoughtful daughter makes the good and thoughtful wife, os a rule; she does not expect the man she marries to be a god and her slave in one; she has the patience and tact to cultivate in him tho qualities slio desires, and to keep his love and rospoot. 1 never see a potted, pampered girl who is yielded to ui ovory whim by servants and parents, that I do not sigh with pity for the man who will some day be her husband. It is the worshipped datighter who has been taught that hor whims and wishes are supremo in a household, who makes marriage a failure till her life. She has had her way in things great and small, and when she desired dresses, pleasures or journeys which wero beyond the family purse, she carried tho day with tears or sulks, or posing as a martyr. Tho parents sacrificed aud suflfored for hor sake, hoping finally to see her well married. They carefully bide her faults from her suitors who seek her hand, and sho is ever ready with smiles and allurements to win the hearts of men, and the average man is as blind to tho faults of a pretty girl as a nowly-liatolied bird is bhml to tbo worms upon the trees about him. He thinks lior little pettish ways are more airUsh moods; but when she becomes his wife and reveals her sciflsii and cruel nature lio Ss Oriovcd and Slurt to think fate has been so unkind to him, I once heard a man complain of tho stubborn selfishness of bis wife in small, daily matters, which completely ruined his home lite. luslted Itimif ho had not caused this trait to develop through some carelessness on his own part. "Oh, no," lie said, "I knew hor from her early girlhood, ami sho was always terribly selfish with her parents; her will ruled fiither and mother in all things, and she always had her way in everytiilng." "Then you wore tho bbndost of men to marry her," I said, "f-or while I havo known one or two selfish sons to bo trained into fairly good husband,'; by oxcelleut wives, I never know it solilsli and thoughtless daughter to m.ako a good wife." ]5\'ory girl dreams of tha timo when she will become a loved wife; but how can she expect to bo lovod if s!io ia not loveable?

One friend of mine, a lawyer, with an ear for realities, says that it is generally believed tliat O'Shoa knew of the intrigue between bis wife and Parnell, and after that consented that J:"amell should put him in Pitr-liament, and that Mrs. O'Shea in her plea before the court meant to oxpresri just this slate of things. Tltu same gentleman says that while ho was hostile to Parnell's general Irish course, ho for himself would now vote for Parnell if he was an elector in Ireland. My friend takes the general worldly view that it is hypocrisy which underlies tho loud exclamations against the Irish leader. By hypocrisy men of the world believe that a prevalent sin ought not to be a, subject of moral protestation, especially on the part of those who never have Deon above suspicion. My friend says that the morals of tho English Parliament and of the English nation justify no such excitabilitj', and that four-fifths of all those who are now at tho front, saying "tut, tut," knew about this matter two or three j'ears ago, and are only down upon Parnell at present because the verdict has been rendered of "found out," Nevertheless, men trusted with largo onuses, and whoso characters constitute one-half of thoir cause, should not belittle their support by exhibiting this woaknoss for females. It is in Parnell's favor that he is pretty young, and iu that young period when women join in loud adulation for political leaders is tho time for men to go astray. I ivas talking at Fort Washington last Sunday with a iine old Irish gentleman there who collects rents, and has been in this coiuitry about iO years. Ho is iii all things, except loving a glass, a religious pupil ot the Catholic church. Said he, over tlio glass ; "I must say that with .all my aversion to men misbobavlug with other men's wives, I would vole for Parnell tomorrow if I was in Ireland. I like the fellow's pluck. Wo have not rallied around him as a specimen of private nior.ality; we took stock in him because he was in favor of the Irish nation. We have not had a leader since ]�imiel. C'Connell commanding anything like the support Parnell has had; and, by the way," said my old friond, whoso name was Maloney, "1 havo heard Daniel O'Counell speak." "Ob, ho!" "Yes sir; I heard O'Connell in the south ot Ireland, in tho county of Kerry, when I was a little fellow perhaps 10 years of ago. I reuieuiber him distinctly, lie was a great, big, coarso niitii, with a voicelilcoa drum, wlio could speiik about anything, old native iri.sh. "Now, what Itind of man was Mr. 0'Con�' nell as lo morals?" ".lust tho same, sir, from what I have heard, that Mr. Parnell is." "IJo you get that from any publication?" "Kot exactly, sir. It was hear.=ay all over Ireland that ho was a man liitich given to the other sex. Of course he was the idol ot Iridand, and even m that land of excep-tiomil chastity a public leader ijau carry some women off their feet, AVomen like to lock up to a man and admire iu Itim the mighty qualities v.-liicli move a nation, Bui you will find in the tnitiiigs of Sir (Javaii Dtifl'y, who was in the Irisli rovohuion ot ISi.S, aud went olV to Australia, and tlierc became a rulor, some reference, 1 tliink, to O'Connell, as v,-hcia lie saya that Daniel O'Connell failed to amount to much in the latter part of his life, bucause at the atte ot 7U he had fallen in love vvitli a young girl of hanlly 20, and that after that his mind Wits pulpy. "Nov,-, mind you," said Maloney, "that after Duffy v.TOte this, he at the age of 75 married himself ayoiuiggirl of less than 20. Urs, sir, there is no certainty at all about men on tliis matter ot the other sex, --^ncl that is why 1 forgive Parnell. I take it lor gri.'.itvd that the seciei life ot a intui now liiid lilt 11 ciunes Gilt, and that all the liyi"-criies clap their bands or wail liudly, as i, soi!,eil;ijig new bati eveuttiatea to the world," I R.iid to my Irish friend, who lists the reputation in the iiorihcrn part of Manhattan isliiiid of being read uj) on all these Irish Questions, "Perhiips you can tell me who this Mrs. O'tihea is?" "I" iiae-i lave understood, cir, that she is a very iookiiig Euglisli wornaa, tjjo Kistar of Sir Evelya Woods, It seems to me, also, that the Sister of Sir Evolyn Woods is a niece of tho Duke of Cambridge. You know that the Duke of Cambridge, Queen Victoria's cousin, took a ivife outside of tha court laws, and his marriage, therefore, was not strictly legal. From what I understand, this Mrs. O'Shea is of the conneotloh of that wife, perhaps, of the Duke of Cambridge. "Now, Parnell, like many of our Irish leaders, perhaps has an aristooratio mas. He is ft cold sort ot man. more English t^an the English themselves. PIo has never attracted tlie Irish by his warm manners, but rather by his intellect, self-control iuid OQolnoss. It is not unlikely that the favor of a woman thus connected and of the English race might have taken PamoU'off his feet," Ml'. Maloney sipped his slass, and re-mtirked furtlior: "Poor old Ireland has every time, it seems to me. been lost by the conduct of a woman. The way the foreigners got in thero Just after the Norman times was through a woman. McMurrough, one of the petty kings of Ireland, totJk away a girl or the wife of another king, O'Rourka. ITie injured man fled over to Wales, where there were some knights who had become followers of tho reigning family of England; we may suppose m that tliao, sir, Wales was an iudepeudentcountry. " "The injured Irishman showed these strangers how to make a descent upon Ireland and conijtter it. So a woman s folly led the way into Ireland and its subjugation, away b.ack thero in the year 1100 or 1200. Ani3 now we have Parnell, after years of combination, large expenditure of money and tho highest expectations of tho national hopes, letting himself down before tho world on account ot a tvomau." "My dear sir," said Mr. Mivloney, "a large proportion of the eminent men of the world are just next to being found out. Tliose men who are of tliomselves the most cold, formal and ambitious are often persecuted at home by mlsbehavinp wives. I have known in my roaitlenoe in this port of the island lawyers, editors and many sucli, who just escaped big scandals in tho newspapers because in tlioir day the reporters wero not allowed to go so much into private matters. Now and then you have Some lawyer devoted to his books, a thorougli-goiiig bookworm, consulted by all the clients, who loses tho interest ot his wife. She will cut up shines, causa scandal among the servants, make him miserable for lite, aud yet Both ot TJjom Mas- Dlo and nothing over be printed on the maUor. Again, you may see some old man whose desiro for wealth and whoso public aspirations have been fully indulged. Ho will havo married in his youth some half-careless woman, who grows �worse as sho grows older. ",Sho will havo a back door to her house aud her hangers-on a�d parasites como in there and out up shines, and the old m.an who has blistered so many otliors in his day and iimde tho publication ot scandals a terror, may have to spend all tho remainder of Ins days soiuothbig liko a poor old cuckold underbis oAvn roof. Standing by Parnell's side tho most devoted of his adlieroiits is O'Kelly. I recolloftt O'Kelly quite well. � Ho is a stout, broad-shouldered man of natural courage, and the part ho has played to sustain Parnell is what every one might have expected wlio knew him. Circumstances in O'lveily's life would cause him to take an indulgent view of the frailties of his loader. O'Kelly had a desk in the Herald office, and was regarded there as a silent, reliable, and possibly tough fellow. He was polite, riither secretive, and could be interesting. jVbout f S'/ii I went to Cuba, hatdng been at that time a writer on the Herald fretitionfc-ly. Its cuiiduclor said to mo on my return, "Iwiisli t bad known that yo-ii were down there, I would have had you go through the Sp.anish lines into vho rebel luies. .If you had been tiUtou prisoner it would have made a great sensation for tiio Herald," "Th.'tnlc you," said I; "tiiere are a few people at home aitito as important to me as one day's hullabulloo for tlio Herald, When I was younger I miglit havo rushed into that at your invitation." Tho idea, however, of sending somebody through the Spanish lines into the ('ubau rebellion was thus engendered, and a person wlio had volimteerod to do somo exposed work for tho paper was sent to Cuba. He probably iiilt .also llii-vt one could hardly bo well paiii if ho got shot in order that tbo Herald might live one week more; so be wrote something or other which was not nuito the thim;. The conductor of the !iap.;r now worked him.ielf up into a state of heroics, lie was ready to sacrifice all his wife's relatives to have somebody go TUroi-gh lliiit Sctijuiali tUle. He poureo out his soul iu bitterness in tho presence of O'Kelly, who quietly said, "I will go there for you." And go Kelly did. He had hardly made the first step, which had nearly been half the jouniev, v,-licn the Spa;iisli capuu'od bim, and v.-ere about to shoot him as full of holes as a col lender. He then exeCHtr-rl the well-known feat of claiming to be a iiritish subject. Of cotu-se, if ho had been an .A.mei-icah citizen, we should have let him be shot, and rendered a verdict of "si-rvod him right." But the Britisii govemmLnt rescues its citizens, more rarticularly when tliov arc wrong. Tho .Si'ituish had no stomach lor having a (luarrei with England on sttcU a roviig, 6eini-cotnmissin;ic;i quantity as O'Kelly, Mr. O-Kelly, I think, was sh.ipped 10 Siiain under British protection, or per-hati; after be got there, and madebis plea ot once a Briton tthvass a liriton, even when a reporter. He came out with a whole skin, took his place iu tbo Herald office again, aud almost everybody was gbid to make hiB actjualntance. * I remember walldng up BroadwasLwith liim a tow squares soon aftei-w.arr^i �^nd heinffEirtick irith his wodcisty a'sd Mi'esi a .luicmoas. It would take about 200 years Ijo unmake the Colt in that man, or to roll his brogue out so th.tt it would stay rolled. A little while afterward the small �world around about the New York newspapers, which is a miniature ot the British Parlia,. ment at the present time, felt horrified to read what should havo been the headlines to a story about O'Kelly, namely, "Found Out." It soems that this hero's performances in Cuba and Spain had attracted the attention of various females, upon hia return Mr. O'Kelly married the sister ot one of his desk associates in the Herald office. According to the published stories,, however, the hridcgrbbm did not come home �with much regularity. Before his mari-iage ho had been favored by some outside lady, and upon balancing the joys of marriage under a certificate and maiTiage under the rose, he had decided against the certificate, especially on hia way home from tho office, Ti'hen it was the habit of all good Herald men to stop once or twice and talce a drink. The distress of the �wife being conveyed to hor brother iu the Herald office, this brother faoea O'Kelly one night when they had come together To Try Hie 'Woria, newspaper fashion. It �was a good deal like �the battle between Macbeth aud Macduff. Both men wore broad-shouldered, heavy-hipped, dark-oomploxioned, bristling, pugnacious. They did not wipe the floor up with each other, but fears wore entertained in the sur-rotmdiug buildings that the whole Herald would come down after thoy had fought a round or two. The ohivalrio competitors of the Herald published the whole mattoz-. Thereupon,, in consideration of his past services, the Herald sent Sir. O'Kelly oil to the Carlist war, or to Ireland, or some other place, and Parnell picked him up and nominated him for Parliament and put him down on the roll. Mr. OIKelly, therefore, has been standing at Parnell's side remarking to Justin McCarthy, Healy. Sexton and others; "The next thing you follows know you will be wallcing on your uppers, for when the Irish nation gets at you thero �won't he enough left of you to make a shaving brush." . , It is str.ango how this most natraal of men's errors should bo made by the prurient historians to occupy so largo a space in biography. Nero has become a familiar subject on the operatic and dramatic stage, and there is an .apparent tondonoy to give him a little whitewash in our day. Ho is stiid to havo disposed ot bis mother and kicked his wife so that she died. Considering, however, that ho wos derivative from Marc Antony, and that he was the child of au uncle and a niece, it is to be hoped that the morning papers in N ero's day were not too much excited when he was found out. I was iu the bookstore of Ah. Francis, a former Boston man, long resideut in New York city, only about a fortnight ago, w^hen he said to mo; "Here is t; life of Wash showed you zino ot about iiat suppressed chapter m the Ingtoii. You remember that I Tho Town and Country Maga-jut 1777, some time ago, in v.'hioli was a letter from America relating to ail alleged episode in Wtishiiigton's lite while lie was commander-in-ehiof in the State of New York. 'Well, hero is something further on tliat subject." It seems that this court-martial took place at about Dobb's ferry on tho Hudson. I found that the JPamplilot Hii* Boeii Pu'bllslied by John Campbell of Philadelphia, some 20 years ago. Campbell kept a second-hand bookstand, and he was perhaps the first person in this country to republish Alexander Hamilton's "Observations," relating his intrigue with Mrs. Ileyucws. Campbell's son is now a prominent Democratic pohticiau in Philadelphia. 1 took up this pamphlet about Washington, aud found that it was a mutilated sketch of tho testimony before a oourt-martial atDobb's Ferry, where certain persons wore tried its spies and traitors for having obtained from Gen. Washington's person somo p.apcrs or instructions 'which they had communicated to tho enemy. Tlie context seemed to show what Tlio Town and Country Jhi(fa'.^ino Jiad clinrged in London, iianidly, tliat whilst in New Jersey, Washington had become familiar with a girl, who crossed the river to Ke-w i'ork, and there was taken into tho pay or confidence of somo disallouled ofiicor or Tory, who am-l>loyod her to take out of Washington's pockets the reports made to him upon the difitio.sitiou ot the troop.s, their location, etc. Tlieso papers were slipped to somebody else, who hastily took copies ot them and sent them within tho British lines. Washington fotind that his dispositions wero so exactly comiterod on the British side that he began to sttsp'jct some of his secretaries, liciiia watclicri, however, the secretaries were fotind taulthss, and so tho invostiea-tion was turned upou this woman, and slie was traced after she left Waslungfon, and the parlies with whom she communicated, .and sho as well, were arrested, Tlio principal male offeudor was condemned to be liang,5d, but it was thought advisii,ble not to make too much excitement on the subject, and he was sent to Connecticut and kept in captivity there for the rest of tlie war. I asked .how it was that if such a thing as this had bjippened, all the historians, such -.15 irparlts and Irving and Ltissing, had never referred to the matter at all, Idr, Francis said, "Well, because these tilings have been printed there is no clear eridence that Gen. Washiugtou was gtulty." A few days after the above examination of the Campbell booit I happened to bo at Dobb's Ferry at rlie house ol^Mr. B. J. Smitii. v.-hn is the iiresidciit ol tho Ajnerieim Press Association. Mr. .Smith came from Terro Haute, lud.. a few ycMS ago. and established supplying iu typo special uiatt,erto many interior newspapers. I should judge that he had been very successful, because he lives, in a rather superb way on tho banks of tns iluason river, and, like many Now "i orlfiTe Ui our tiigo, kemn hie housa warm and ocoupited all winter. He said to lae, a� he lay m bed, suffering from injuriea received in the war, "That follow Parnell is a game man. He is going to ivin, too. No man who stands up under adverse clrcum-stanoes like this oan be beaten." I referred upon these remarks to the Washington episode aforesaid. "I dare say." said Mr. Smith, "that that house across the road, which you see from this window, is the very house Washington then occupied. It was the home of one oil the Livingstons, and it was almost invariably Wasliinefton's headtjuarters when ha wasin this viQinity." When I went out I looked at this house. It is wade of frame. In the good oatfetotry of an earlier day before they had so lhany planing mills and sash factories. A kind of double-roofed poroh, with an arched frame, as it seemed, above tho poroh ceiling', ran the width of the house, which had its 'wide side to the road, aud over the house was a curious kind of lookout, or tower, big enough to contain rooms. The whole was in first-rate preservation and stood on the steep hillside by tho road leading from New York to Albany, that same fatal road on which Andre was captured, within a mile or two of this very spot. Mention of the newspaper press of tho interior calls to my mind a remark made to me by Mi'. Barues of Albany, tho owner of the Albany Evening Journal at the present time. I saw him last week. Ho is a handsome man, the grandson of Thurlow Weed, whoso most intellectual and man-like daughter married a gentleman named Barnes, who became afterward', 1 tiiink, the itisurauce commissioner of tha State of No w York. It was the present Mr. Barnes' elder brother, Tliurlow Weed Barnes, who issued "The Life and Letters of Tliurlow Weed." From the publisher and some of his associates I heard thesinsrulor stoiT that the newspapers of the Interior of New York State have bad a material falling off In prosperity in recent j oars. At tho close of the oMl war it looked as if the newspapers in tho interior of New York State were m a most prosperous condition, Thoy had their own telegraphic press agency in the city of New York under the Associated Press roof. Such papers ns the Buffalo Courier, Rochester Union, Utica Herald and Troy Times were reg.arded as fine income yielding properties. I mauired why these papers had been falling oif. "Tlioy gave too much attention to politics and too llttlo to the business and proper concerns of tlioir communities." This set me to thinking, and I �was met with tbo furfihor remark: "A comparatively small portion of the people want much politics. Our f-jtate newspapers became appmidagesto political machines. Their proprietors vrantod to go to Congress and to hold ottloes. Tlie pubUo lost interest in so much ding-dong about votes and majorities and patronage. Trade papers ran away with tho advertising of the business houses. In that way such papers as tho Utica Herald and the Syracuse Journal havo had to be sold under foreclosed mortgages. In Albany are two papers, eaoh representing a proimnent political party, and ono of these was sold some timo ago as having served its end in electing Unitod States senators, etc., and being no longer, except under a healthier management, property sufficient to keep. The other paper is said to lose a groat many thousantl dollars a year, and to moke up the deficit out of its job office. It is, indfod, the languid Interest in politics which is tho growing foatura in American life. The standard politioians hava occupied too much space in the pubUo eye, considering their mental avoirdupois. As I was coming away from Albany I met a person on tho train associated with tho Stiito government, who said, after -we had talked over tho past and recent governors of New York Stale: "Well, men had much bettor attend to their business concerns than to the accumulation of fame. There are only three men in tha whole history of the United States who have g'ot any genuine fame, Washington, Lincoln and Grant." Qbobqji Ai.riiKr> Towksend. Two Soarf Pins Barred.
