Lincoln, United States Minister to Great Britain, was about to resign bis position There are practical jokes whioh are criminal. Such a one vas "played" by that Delaware Bcoundrel who induced his friend to drink from a bottle of ammonia. With tb� complete success of Tammany to the north of them and a solid Democratic South on the other Bide, the Pennsylvania Mugwumps may rub their hands and congratulate themselves on the suooess of their efforts. They ought to be happy. The lew use of ohief importance to whioh electricity is to be applied is mining, and to this end the eleotrioians are bending their energies.

A Tammany alderman was aiok on election day, and when news came that he was defeated some one with a poor idea of what a joke should be hung crap* on tbe alderman's door.

Two months commutation may be earned each year by good oendnot. RerORTS from California indicate that the most gigantic mining scheme ever attempted, even in that country of great enterprises, is on the eve of a grand success. The Feather river, an impetuous mountain torrent, has been deflected from its bed by means of two dams and a long tunnel, and its old bottom is now ready for the pick and. cradle of the gold hunter. It was expeoted that this bottom would be found very rich in gold, but the first trials indicate that it is much rioher even than supposed, and that the gains of the projectors of the enterprise* will he many millions.

Acoording to a statement made by a prominent physician a few days ago there has been a greater number of deaths from typhoid fever within the past three weeks than for a long while before. The faot should behoove every family to use extra care in the way of oleanliness, every person should be extraordirarily vigilant, for the above disease is truly one to be feared. While there is no danger of it becoming epidemic, yet the old saw of "an ounoe of prevention being worth a pound of cure" holds good in this case, and is tbe prinoi. pie by which all should be governed.

Fish and poker ara probably tbe most indefatigable and pretentious enemies tbat truth baa to enoounter.
