German has been made an optional study in the place of astronomy and latin in the first term of the senior year at Yale College. Tho Arch Duccos Sophia Mother of Tho Lato emperor Maximilian has not been to visit their in Poisal majesties on their journey to Salzburg. This has Boen remarked upon and the German press has to various speculations upon Tho Causo of her abstention. Tho correspondence generals of Vienna supplies the reason As follows a a her Imperial highness Sulik in profound grief by the sanguinary event of quere Taro has vowed As a sign of her unutterable / sorrow to Wear mourning for Tho rest of Hor Sho did not go to Salzburg but was certainly there in spirit and in treasures. There is an inherent disposition in Man to a a Hunt a to Hunt lost treasures and the following speculations from one of our exchanges Are Only equalled in Absurdity by the proposition of one of Chicago a enterprising citizens who has started a company for. The purpose of recovering the immense sums sunk in shares by the emancipation proclamation of president Lincoln the desire to get Rich by other than the slow but sure Means of Industry and Economy has prompted Many laudable enterprises and at Tho same time Many wicked and a As Many foolish ones. The. Recovery of lost treasures is a tempting bait to hold out. Money enough has been wasted in the search forbidden wealth to have made Many fortunes in legitimate enterprises. These treasure seeking speculations seem to teas attractive As gift enterprises and really they require As much credulity on the part of the investors. Some wag in Engllind hit off the Salvage mania there a few years ago by issuing a prospectus for a joint Stock company to Drain the red sea to recover the valuables the egyptians lost when pharaoh and his hosts were overwhelmed by the a a Waters in their Pursuit of the children of Israel. Hardly More reasonable is Tho undertaking which has assumed Active shape again of re covering the Gold on Board the British frigate Hussar which was sunk at hell Gate on Tho 25th of november 1780. The Hussar was reported to have had nearly five millions of Dol a Lars in Gold on boards a big prize if they can get it. Efforts have been made periodically during the past three quarters of a Century to recover this treasure but without the wreck of which Little remains lies in. Eighty feet of water and the current is very rapid still the present company is Sang line of Success. So was the Kidd Salvage company which for nearly a generation searched and dredged the bed of the Hudson River to find the buried treasures of Captain Kidd. The pirates ill gotten Booty has not yet been discovered. In past Ages the belief in buried treasures. Had better foundation than it has now. In times of oppression men were More accustomed to turn their wealth into what or. We Mick called a portable property a and to hide it away in Tho Earth or elsewhere to save it from spoliation. But Monte Cristob have always been very rare. People Are not Apt to lose sight of their buried treasures. There is a vast amount of wealth buried iii the sea Vrzich we have not yet found any Means of getting at but having Laid a Cable on the bed of the Atlantic Man May yet discover Means of traversing these Depths when we shall have our enterprising citizens a organizing companies. To recover some of those a a Quot Gunis in Rene the it Laik unfit Liomel Cave of Ocean Joule. The following is a better exemplification of the above title than can be found in the Laboured pages of Rowan Hinton helpers new Book a. Branch railway in the Madras presidency in India runs through a wild Region the inhabitants of which Are unsophisticated Savages addicted to thievery. The first Day that the line was opened a number of these arcadians conspired to intercept the train and have a glorious to accomplish their object they placed some trunks of Trees across the rails but the engine Driver keeping a very Sharp look out As it happened to be his first trip on the line in question descried the trunks while yet they were some considerable distance from him. The brakes were then gut on and when the locomotive had approached within a couple of feet of the trunks it was brought to a stand still. Then instant like Roderick dhus clansmen starting from the Heather natives previously invisible swarmed up on All sides and crowding into the carriages began to plunder a everything they could Lay their hands upon. While they were thus agreeably engaged the guard gave the signal to the Driver who at once reversed his engine and put it at the top of its Speed. The Reader May judge of Tho consternation of the robbers when they found themselves whirled backward at a Pace that rendered escape from the carriages utterly impossible. The few who attempted it were killed on the spot. Thus were our arcadians nicely caught and As they were transferred from this novel Man trap to the jail they were no doubt convinced that the a fire Brandy can move progressively and Retro Gres sively with equal facility. Purgatory to this heading a writer in an italian journal undertakes to. Prove mathematically that there is no longer any use for Purgatory. To estimates the entire Catholic population of the world at one Hundred and fifty millions. Then ten thousand one Hundred and Twenty five catholics a die every Day. "fle�?zj3.np.pqes.Tho-Bxtr eme Case that they All enter Purgatory. A now if a plenary indulgence is gained every Day by one of every ten thousand catholics then fifteen thousand souls Aro daily saved that is one third More than the number received each Day into Purgatory. But these preceding numbers do not give any idea of the fabulous Quantity of souls delivered each Day from Purgatory if there. One example will prove this. Quot the 10th of april 185g, Pio in. Grant Edall indulgences of Tho holy land of the seven Basilico of Rosmo of the Santa Porciuncula and of tie Sau Giacoino i Campostella to each of Tho faithful wearing a Blue scapular every time they repeat the Pater ave and Gloria Bix times without the obligation of either confessing or communicating. Now Tho indulgences Quot in question Aro prodigious in number. St. Liguori in his italian work a Tho glories of Mary a vol. In Devotion 0, says that the plenary indulgences amount to five Hundred and thirty three and the partial ones Aro innumerable. Thus ten devout men repeating the above mentioned exercises ten times in Twenty four hours save each Day fifty to lire thousand three Hundred souls that is forty three thousand one Hundred and seventy five More than Tho number of catholics who this is putting a Genius for statistics to an Odd use. Of course Tho Reader will understand that Only catholics go to Purgatory. Protestants and other heretics go further and fare York timing parsing. The parting Between Napoleon and Eugenio and Francis Joseph and Elizabeth a thus described by the a a Jenkins who does things for the London times Elizabeth and Eugenie kissed Ono another repeatedly and Shook hands Over and Over again. Just before getting into Tho Carriage the Empress of the French turned round again went up to Tho Empress Elizabeth and without raising Tho Vail she had just lowered Over her face kissed her once More on the left Cheek. This Salute was received very quietly and not returned. Francis Joseph Bent his lofty head Over the pretty Little hand of the French Empress and led. Her to the Carriage into which she sprang with Tho lightness and agility of a Young girl. Napoleon who wore the ribbon of Tho Golden fleece followed her slowly ascending the Steps apparently with some difficulty and both took up places by the door where they remained standing and nodding to their Lato hosts until the train was fairly a oat of sight. single cheer was raised either out or inside the station. Napolz on Shook hands very cordially with Baron Beust and Counte Andrassy and Festetics. The emperor of a Austria took a Friendly Farewell of general Fleury and Madame do a Sling. Eugenio Shook hands with the princes Schwarzenber and Lichtenstein and with Archduke Ludwig Victor. Of course the band a Strong one played a spa rant Quot etc., the whole time of Tho. Leave taking so that not a word could be heard of the Farewell greetings _ although Napoleons movements were its stiff and Laboured As on the Day of his arrival he looked very Well indeed but i remarked that to scarcely smiled once during Tho whole ceremony of his departure. His grave and impenetrable countenance seemed set in n look of studied Gravity and to spoons Little a he smiled. The Empress Eugenie on Folio contrary was All graciousness her tight fitting Low bodied Black travelling do ass showed off the luxuriant beauties of her to great advantage and her tiny Fefie Viand Ankles were liberally displayed As Bra ran up the Carriage Steps the said Blu travelling dress being very Short and decidedly what believe is bouffe and so they Are gone and there is the end of my Salzburg a Story a the would seem that Tito Salt Lake people Are entering upon a new Phaze Tivey having., apparently concluded to defy the United states govern Mont find a a abide the the Tabernacle has resounded to the Yin Leali a a harangues of some of Tho Groat lights tin onto the latter Day saints and one and All have announced in the most positive manner that they were polygamists and that they intended to remain such. One fiery gentleman said hot a had violated and would continue to vib Lafe the Laws of Congress on this subject and denounced the government As tyrannical and unjust and As having no right to impose regulations upon Tho saints. He advised the latter to adhere to Poi game Asthon enhancement of their salvation and Tho foundation of their institutions. Elder Kimballs he of the Many wives and the oily Tongue followed in Tho Walia of the More fiery brother and asserted Tisz a Oit the subject of polygamy he k is he has fathered seventy children already and calculates that in seventy years Alcor Ding to their Powers of reproduction Tho Kimball family will outnumber the present aggregate of the saints. We Are at a loss to account for this sudden excitement Oes the part of the mormons not having heard Quot or any recent measures adopted it by Tho government in opposition to their Peculiar systems and must conclude that it has Bee warm in Salt Lake and that the ebullition of Wrath above referred to were the result of the dog Day temperature unless indeed we Are to suppose that Tho brotherhood Are about to declare War against us and let Force decide whether to or they shall take the upper hand a new York express. Indian Cotton at Liverpool. The latest mail advices 4�?Trom Liverpool give the Stock of Cotton at that port thus it 1867. 1866 Stock of Cotton aug. 17.680,100 938,270 proportion of Indian Cotton. .156,140. 389,470v the imports of Cotton from India to Liverpool from january 1 to Date had been 578,810 Bales against 1,036,321�?TBales in 1866. Tho decrease shown Here in the amount of Cotton received from India in 1866�?the first year after the end of Pur War was so great As to encourage at 3first the idea that the production in that country would fall Back to its. Former comparatively Small amount and Leavo to our Southern states Tho supremacy in the. Liverpool Market. It has since appeared however that the a Cotton production of India has been so greatly stimulated by Tho High prices of Tho past. Few years that there is every Prospect of its. Continuance and in the present year Tho Export to great Britain will to Largo. The report of or. Walton the Cotton commissioner of the presidency of Bombay in India which was published in april last gave. Accounts of a very remarkable increase of the crop of 1866-67 Over that of 1865-66. To quote from the times Quot of India of april 1 having now Given the particulars for Tho two divisions it will suffice if we merely give Tho totals for the whole presidency As the aggregate shows an increase in every item. There Are now under Cotton in Tho whole presidency 2,978,182 acres of land of which. 741,-814 Aro planted with a a exotic Cotton a subject to the important qualifications required in the Case of the Berar Khan dish these figures show 54 per cent More land than last year 18g5-66 cultivated for Superior varieties and something less than 1 per cent. Increase for the native Plant. Tho total out turn for 1866-7 of clean Cotton is estimated by the Cotton commissioners aided by the opinion of the various collectors at 148 a inn 3eii?s equal to nearly 300,000 Bales. Of Tho total number of candies 05,389 consist of tie exotic or acclimatized varieties the remaining 103,059 Beins Tho unimproved though a Large proportion of it the bettor class of indigenous Cotton. These figures show for 1866-7 an increase of 125 per cent of out turns of the Superior varieties of the Staple and a Little Over 3 nor cent increase in the Quantity of native Cotton. To need scarcely remark that thi3 estimate of three Lakhs of Bales of new Cotton Reiers strictly to what is grown within Tia presidency and takes no account 6f Tho increasing Quantity that May be expected from Tho Central provinces and from Berar a new Orleans times
