NEW YORK, Feb 10 copy of The Rio ews the following statement of uy Barboss, minister of finance of Brazil The national debt left as an inheritance by te monarchy is more than contos reis (about 000 000) This enor- mous total will equal the receipts of the tate for nearly seven years, estimating at our annual revenue Let the ountry, therefore know what it owes upon lis side to tha regime happily extinct, to ow few departments it has a claim from le side of the classes whose labor promotes industry, enriches the souroon of taxation nd develops general wealth 'At the same time the lesson becomes sea sonable to serve as a warning to the gi ow- ing republic, and to Its founders, hose example cannot but influence the baracter of our future hnbite so that we iay learn to escape this reef of prodigality, hich appears to exercise such deep and atnl attraction in our day upon tbe policy f democracies." He urges the pruning of expenses, elimina- lon of useless departments, the filling of ffices by persons of merit and capacity, and "miting aposentados (officials retired on sal' l j) to the cases marked by law Then Mr larbosa continues "Let us not multiply which, drop iy drop, may giow into torrents of ruinous rponio Let us restrict ourselves in ere- .ting new services to absolute necessity jet us fly from republican favoritism, the mmoral and fatal transformation of the >ld monarchical nepotism Let Us not con- rlbute to or continue m force under the tew situation the habits of a nation of place maters.

WASHINGTON, Feb 10 Porte, ol he department of agi iculture, is of opinion hat a process has boon discovered by which tbe ramee plant can be made into cloth at such moderate cost that it will soon become a dangerous rival to cottoa "About a month said Mr Porte in conversation on this subject, "information reached th< department that Mr Thomas Mabbett, e Providenoe mauufaelm el, had-succocded-iH doing with the ramee plant what hundreds t might say thousands, of others had tne< nnd failed to do that is, he had, at smal cost woven ramee fiber into cloth. ramee fiber which he had thus succeeded hi weaving had boon prepared by a process d by Mr Charles Topham, a chernis of Salem, Masa Mr Topham by a socre formula, had turned the fiber into a sub stance resembling fioss This fiber he sent tc Mabbett at Providence for weaving Mr Topham, it seems, had been experimenting with ramee for years, like a great many othe men, and only succeeded after innnmerabl failures "I was ordered by the department to go New England and investigate the discover ies of Messrs Topham and Mabbett. I di so, and what I saw has convinced me that th problem of the utilization of ramee has a last been satisfactorily solved." A Curious Pension Complication.

This was evidently known to the burglar, who must have secreted himself in the house while Mr Floyd was at the bam doing his chores, but strange to relate none of tbe money was taken.
