They perhaps cauyht the idea from the practice in tho army hospitals during tit a lato war of the surgeons aud nurses, who habitually, drank all tho whisky and atu nil tbe delicacies. A in Elgin, Illinois, was killed by the cars while drunk thj man, uot tho cars and his wifc brought suit against fifteen sa- loon-keepers end of a building in which a saloon was kept. Non suit entered, aa to eleven ot the saloon-keepers, but the suits against tun other four and tho one landlord went to truil, and the jury, oa Tuesday last, gave her a verdict of IT appeals as jf Mr. Ca.kins, of Indiana, was endeavor CK to gee a caulking job in on the national government when he introduced a bill to aid in making further Arctic explora- tions aud detailing Master Lucien 'Voting as dommanc.er. Ho wants and tJOO for expenses. If thti Indiana congressman will only heavily insunj Young's life, there' ia some early future in it, THE Crapo bill to extend tbo national brink charters comes'up to-day in the national Houst' of Representatives. As tho bill is sim- ply a of cotivonienca to the banks and tbe butJiM'ss public, and does not enlarge their privih gcs, it is presumed it will pass without dovelc 'jinjj formidable opposition, tbough there be congressmen wjlio would strike tbe sj'Sterj.i out of existence and go back to Wild- catting. TUB offer of a reward of by the presi- dent 01' the Lund League of America for the arrest'of tbe Dublin assassins, is au encour- aging addition to the resources of civilization, and may serve to calm the excitement of Eng- lUh conservatives wbo would set aside the cL rjl rights of a whole people toy an act that Ireland herself ought to have the rightoous satisfaction of punishing, as Uie is undoubtedly prepared to punish it. THE Boston Htraid, reiimrluuj; on tho gen- erally supposed fact that Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson are both suggests th at if they should reaprear in the flesh Jef- ferson would fail to recognize hi; party and Jdckson would wear ont the toes of his mili- tary boots in kicking its incapable leaders to ibe rear. Rather a grave criticism, but it is licrt the first time a truth was ever dug op the bowels of tho earth. SEVENTY-EIGHT HUXDHKD is tho number of bills that have been and are still weighing down the present session of the Forty-soronth Congress. About 7500 of them are in tho na- ture -of buncombe for home conimmptfon. Each member wants to be returned, and if he can do nothing to win a national reputation ho is not such an idiot as neglect his rear. These bills ke3i> a place for him in tbe affections of his constituents. TOE New Orleans Price Current aanouncef that the Louisiana Gnn Club have found a substitute for pijjooos to be shot at in their contests, in bats, of which they can get an ample supj'ty.

TuCrMomt luuranos Company of New Orleans has diseoTcrcd that ftiuala ara qalto M expeditkms and accurate as young Utmen, aud eight lady clarks aavo been for so many youns who are thrown out upoa the cold obaritlM of a salflsn world to aetJt a lirelihood in soue more colliM Tccation.

THB New Orleaas Prouuca E robing a was formally opewxl on tha 1st, with fair attend- ance and good bidding. The secretary an- nounced that the minimum quantities thai would be sold! were; pork 30 barreli, lard ttarces, and grain of all kinds 1000 bi There will be two a day, and it itei- peeted Itis feature hi the will soon grow to large proportions.

THKBK !s a period of over two months fn which to get ready for tho State Democratic Convention. Chairman Smith's formal call for the convention, lo be held In Galveston, July 10, is printed tu Tax News telegram from Dallas this morning. It reftocts the ex- preewd preference of a majority of member of the State Democratic Executive Commit too, and doubtless of those who in the pubtf- interest will to attend the convention as The. cool breezes from thu gulf will bo attractive at that seasou tothedoni- Kons of the heated interior. Tha call IB a fair, btuinMB-like document.__________ Air Indiana Coagreshinun Intro duced a bill to provide a and a cash appropriation, to bo used under tbe direction of nn ambitious navigator, to tackle some more icobtirgii. It that tbe genius, of Indiana has at length solved the problem in what way Unolo Sam can keep down his growing cash balance. The capacity of the polar to absorb, expeditions Is both practically and theoretically unUmited, The appropriation bj proporly voted so far as the expense js considered, it tha proper number of picked cranks oould bo ou- Inted ns an force and then left to find their if they could. A REPORT in tlm London Times it to the effect that during a recont public procession in Dublin a man asked to have tho new secretary pointed out to him. This id construed by groat English journal, aflame witb indignation, to show that the assassination was planned by that person. It might bo so, buc it would be a wonder if a number of people did not ask tbe same question simply front iunoceut curiosity on the advent of a prominent public officur who a stranger among them. Tbe public Jonrnalsare sore to contain a great many speculations, and everything that may serve os a Qlew, however ought to be pursued. Tho facts can not long nmmin unknown. The honest hearts of Ireland will repudiate murder and catch the mmMerfln. t THV House Judiciary Committee has Investi- gated seven railroads that unro failed to fulfill the ceoditione of their land and recom- mend forfeiture. These are tho Ship Island, of Mississippi, which was acres in expired in I860; tbo Tuacaloosa and Mobile, of tbe Mobile and N Orleans, of Alabama, and the Mississippi and Louisiana, whose grants expired also in 1SGC; tbe Coosa and Tennessee, in Alabama, gran 140.1CO acres in iu 1S6C; tho Ely- ton and Beard's expired in 1866 the Savannah and Alabama, of Georgia, in expired in 1867, find tho Iron Mountain, of Arkansas, grant expired in 1871. While this in a small bite at the great big ehi-rrr, it shows a deal strictly with the railroads with land grants. FINDING tbe Pond and Smith anti-liquor statutes ineffectual to close tbe saloous in Ohio, the methods of the are resorted to, and dynamics are hereafter to be applied. At 1 o'clock on the morning of the 4th tho saloon of Sweeney, at Cedorvilie, had tbe en- tiro end blown out by dynamite, scattering bottles, decanters, glnssw, etc., promiscuously, and throwing Sw-wuey and bis wiCe, who were sleeping in a remote part of thta building, out of bed to the floor. An attompt was also made to blow up CaWwell's drug store, which was probably in the habit of tilling proscrip- tions on Sunday, but tho charge failed to ex- plode. If the prohibition intemperance leads to tbi? phase of demoralization and insanity, it will soon beconw necwsary for tho friends of temperance to legislate for the suppression of the manut in all its f jnns. MASON'S hopo of A new trial and mitigation of his sentence for the attempted assassination of Guiteau, was dispelled yester- day by the decision of the United States Supreme {Court ruling that the court-martial which nUteud tbe penalty of his crime had.full jurisdiction. Meantime Betty and tho baby will be cared for by the charitable, and the Chicago clerkship, held open' for him to ex- hibit as a curio." That is, of course, if the mites of petition for his pardon does not meet with favorable consideration. In that event the probabilities are that Mason wJll speedily drop out of existence ia the eternal fitness of things and retire to tho merited obscurity from which ho emerged, through on act which, DO matter bow much Guiteau deserves death, is to be universally condemned ax one ot the worst ia tho calen iar. AMERICANS who are living upon hope that some rich Englishman died a century ago, or later, leaving them untold millions in the Bank of England, or In undivided landed es- tates, may derive some interest from the fact that a so-called International Agency, with headquarters at with branches in America as hi the old world, has beau dis- covered to be a swindling institution and broken up. Its system was to advertise for heirs to large estates left them by some rich cinsmau, and the sending of circulars to prom- inent persons bearing tbo name given, inform- ing them lihat unclaimed properties were awaiting ttmiu, aud proposing, for a retainer, to investigate aud report. Hundreds, and perhaps thousands of persons have doubtless 3ecu induced to forward fees and deposits to these bogus agencies, and have at last boon in- formed that tbe rightful heir bod turned up azid grabbed the whole estate. the 4th instant Mr. farnell held tho following to a London reporter: We bad xupp' s-d might have come in _ few weeks, but wo had 110 rtiwm to ituti  view o its solution, and a growing oeitet their part hat upon a sctttomuDl of UM qucit- ioo. after the Und prjb'vm has boea worked out, nust dtpattd the peaco and prosperity of Irdaud.
