REAL ESTATE, A Eevival of Sales by Auction and Prospects of Increased Activity. great Improvements in the South Parks- in the Last , Thirty Days. ‘ Concentration of Manufacturing Infer' ests at South. Chicago. Eatio of Persons to Dwellings in Fifty Cities of the United States. Transfers for tho Week. Notwithstanding there has Boon some decrease in the volume of recorded transfers during the past week or two, w© believe there is more activ ity in the real estate business than there was a month ago, ; Tho volume of transfers recorded is in fact only an index of tlie . condition of the market a month previous, as it takes about that long-to examine abstracts and complete the papers. One thing, however, is quite certain, viz.: That confidence in the continued growth in population, wnd the consequent continued in crease in the value of real estate in and around tbiß city, was never firmer than it is now. In- - dependent of Jubilees, or anything of tho sort, the summer always brings us a great . many capitalists from the South who pass a -portion of their summer holidays - here and invariably make a great number of im portant purchases before they leave. As several magnificent new hotels are now open, Chicago will be able to offer inducements to these visi tors to prolong their stay. The attractions also which city will now afford in the way of fine drives around the parka and boulevards will un doubtedly exercise an influence in keeping stran gers here longer than in any previous summer, and before fall will show their effect in increas ing the volume of real estate business. AUCTION BALES. During the past ten days there has been an endeavor to revive the business of selling real estate by auction. Thus far' the success has been only moderate, mainly, we think, duo to special circumstances in each case that have in terfered with that special auction, hut not in any general.character, unless it bo the fact that the managers of the sales have not succeeded in making it generally known. A sale of lota which took place this week at Clyde, a station on the C.. B. & Q. Railroad, between this city and Riverside, was moderately successful, in the fact that a considerable proportion of the property offered was sold at fair prices to legitimate buyers. The sale by Messrs. ’William A. Butters & Co., on Tuesday, the Sd instant, was not so successful. The property offered embraced some valuable centrally located residence property, which.had to be withdrawn ffor want of satisfactory bids. A sale of lots -on Humboldt Park and the adjoining boulevards, Vasheldby Messrs. C. C. Thayer & Co.,.and, though it was not sufficiently advertised, it was moderately successful, and a total of thirty-two lots, situated on Milwaukee avenuej Humboldt boulevard, and other avenues, were sold. The prices ranged from $14.50 to $22 per foot,-which is considered a fair price, .with the exception of.the boulevard front property. ; -Lots fronting ease on the boulevard 25x200 feet,'sold for from 818 to 822 per foot, terms one-third cash and balance in one and two years with interest at 8 per cent. .Lots fronting on Milwaukee avenue 25x125 feet, sold for from 814.50 to 822 per foot, on same terms. . A few lots on Mead avenue 25x186 feet, sold ’for 814.50 per foot. ' Dealers had expected to do a good deal in the way of sales of real estate daring the Jubilee Week. We think however, that it was an obvi ous mistake to have made any such calculations. People who come to a Jubilee are not apt to nuke important - purchases while they are on a frolic. The purchase of real estate is a matter of more ..deliberation and the managers of auction sales will find that they cannot be made the impromptu incidents of a Jubilee. With ju dicious advertisement, so that the public may be thoroughly notified of the sale, and, above all, that they may know that the sales will be bona fide, and not what are called “wash sales'.’ on the Board of Trade. There is no reason why auc tion sales of * real estate here should not by as successful as they are in St. Louis and many other cities. In New York tho selling of teal estate by auction used to be u eminently suc cessful, but of late have been less so from the fact that the bidding has been notoriously dope on tho Peter Punk system. Thus far this mistake has been, as a rule, avoid ed in sales of real estate m city, and it is to be hoped it may always be so. Among auction sales to come off soon are: One by Elison & Foster, of desirable boule vard property, to be sold on June 17. One by Win. A. Butters & Co., of houses and and also of houses on leased ground to be sold on next Tuesday morning. Messrs. Thayer & Co. will also continue their Bale of lots fronting on Humboldt Park and bou levard, and on the adjacent avenues, on next when about 100 lots will be offered at section. Sale to take place on the ground. I NEW BUSINESS BUILDING. 0. H. Colehour, Esq., is about to commence the erection of an elegant office building adjoin ing Exchange place, east .of the Chamber of Commerce. The building will cover an area of 90 by 181 feet, and is to be four stories highabove a well-constructed office basement. The fronts are to be faced with Ohio sandstone,, end the openings filled with polished French plate glass. The style is Italian, and the estimated coat of the structure 6100,000. There ..will be offices all along Exchange place, and in the rear of them a fine hall 60 by 100 feet, with entrance from three sides. The contracts will be let during the coming week, -and the work pushed forward without delay. Otto H. Matz is the architect. OREAI. IHBOVEHEJiTS OK THE SOUTH PABKfI AND - • • BOULEVAUDS. 'Any one who has driven around the South Parks and boulevards during the last three weekawill be agreeably surprised in the chance made in the appearance of everything alone the route during that time. At the entrance to the South Park from the Grand boulevard the road ways, which a month ago were narrow and rough, have been widened and made smooth. She whole north 40 acres of the park has been Bet with trees, walks have been laid out through the northern end of the park, and will soon af- Jford pleasant strolls for pedestrians who get oS the dummy train at Fifty-first street. About SO seres of greensward have been made, partly by seeding and partly by sodding, in the grounds bordering these walks. BATABD ATESUE i> a continuation of the Grand boulevard through the park, hut immediately on entering' the park changes its name and character, and, instead of the arrow-like straightness of the boulevard, becomes a winding real, the general course of which is toward the southeast. This will be the first good driving road through the South Park. yet it is in good driving condition, for only about half-a-milo from the entrance to the Park, but it is the intention of the Park Com fiuaaonors to extend it as rapidly as possible down the eastern side of the park, and through the midway “Plaisance” (which French fi* lll ®! by the by, onr- Western s®°P“ -are not likely to . adopt as readily as they did the word boulevard) and •hence across the Sonth Shore Park to the beach “outi half-a-mile south of the Hyde Park Hotel.

B. Sidway 'of. the Park Commission, on whom this task devolved by common consent of the Board. The opening of . OAEWOOD BOULEVABD to.connect the Grand boulevard with flDrexelV boulevard is probably the greatest improvement the Park Commission have made in their whole system this spring. This is now 100 feet wide, and has ofie good carriage-road its entire length. With tho opening of this connecting link, the boulevards and park afford a continuous drive of nearly nix miles from Thirty-fifth street down Grand boulevard, through tno park, up ‘Xroxel” boulevard, and west ou Oakwood 'boulevard 1c Grand boulevard again. Over the. whole dis tance the roads are smooth, and on either side' the hand of art has smoothed the rough coat of nature just enough to make it Pleasing to look at. • _ * - SOUTH CHICAGO. . Much has been said about South Chicago and itsimportance as jm objective point, toward which the city must inevitably reach out and finally consolidate to make the lake front a continuous line of improvements from tho mouth of Chicago River to the mouth of Calumet River, and yet, notwithstanding all that has been said, wo hardly think that our own citizens fuUy appreciate the fact that the Calumet har-, bor must soon - take .a portion of tho increasing transportation business that is boro transferred from railroads to vessels on the lakes, and vice versa. Manufacturers are. however, beginning to see the importance of f.hia fact, and within the last six months no less than four large manufacturing establishments have been located. there. The woolen milL* of Messrs. Sinclair & Co. will be probably tho larg est in the West, and now employs 125 opera tives. - Tho establishment of a factory of woolen machinery and tools by Messrs. Kent, Baldwin & Co. will probably employ fifty operatives. The match factory and planing mill of Messrs. A, J. Griggs & Co. will employ probably fifty more. The Illinois Steam Forge Works, whoso buildings aro now being erected, will employ perhaps a hundred men. The Chi cago X*ou and Steel Company are also about to erect works. Messrs. Itedfield & Sargent are erecting a building for the manufacture of grist mill machinery. Besides those, we hear of alarge canvheel manufacturing company having bought ground for works to bo erected thiq summer. The extensive lumber enterprise of Messrs. Par dee, Cook & Blanchard, who expect to tow rafts of logs across Xake Michigan, from the Great Sauble River, .of Michigan, and saw them up into lumber on the banks of Calumet River, has been de scribed at length, by The Tbiduke and other citypapers. The above mentioned establishments will,in all probability, all be in operation at South Chicago before fall, and by next spring will be employ ing not less than 1,000 operatives there. These iwith their families, and the population Already there, bid fair to give Sonth Chicago * a population of 6,000 people within a year, even if no other manu facturing establishments than those above men tioned should he located there within that time. It is probable however that a .good many other establishments of one kind or another will be drawn there within tho year. The Company who own South Chicago and a vast extent of adjoin ing land are offering large inducements to manu facturers, and will undoubtedly induce a good many more to come. With as attractive a point toward which to reach out it is reasonable to expect that tho eleven miles of distance between the month ’of .Chicago and Calnmet Rivers will within a few years be a continuous lino of streets and houses, and that Chicago, instead of having only one over-taxed outlet for vessels as now, will have two which will eventually be connected by a canal from Blue Island to tho Stock Yards. BATIO OF PEBSONB TO DWELLINGS IN FIFTY *WTTP.q OF THE UNITED STATES. . The following table, mode up from the census report of 1870, shows.some interesting figures relative to the ratio of dwellings to population in each of fifty principal cities in the United States. It will be seen that Philadelphia, though she has a much smaller population *b*n jfew York, has nearly twice as many dwellings. Chi cago has a great many more dwellings than St. Louis, and nearly as many as Brooklyn. The secret of it is that here land is comparatively cheap ; dwellings in the outskirts of the city are small and cheap, and their ownership is within a mechanic's reach. Persons who are acquainted with the facts will see, on looking over the figures, that the cities that are growing the fastest are the ones where there are the few est persons to each house, showing that the houses ore cheap and that the possession of homes is within the reach of a greater propor tion of tho population. On the contrary, in places like New York, where the population is crowded into tenements, there is no hope for tho laboring man to better his condition in that re spect, and land is so high that the tendency is to concentrate it into monopoly by a few rich men: FIFTY CITIES IN TUB CENSUS OF 1870. to 'S to "a s S- -■ s as ; s:- S a s s orrr - i | f |2 i • •• •: i o New York 1 185,7891 64,044 1i.73 •Philadelphia...’. 2 127,746112,306 6.01 Brooklyn 3 80,066| 45,834 8.64 Chicago 4 69,497 44,620 6.70 St. Louie :... 5 69,431| 39,675 7.84 Baltimore 6 49,929; 40,350 6.63 Boston 7 48,188 29,623 8.46 Cincinnati 8 42,937 24,550 8.81 New Orleans 9 39,139 33,65$ 5.69 Sin Francisco .... 10 30,553 *26,905 6.77 8uffa10....'..; ; U 22,325 18,285 6.44 Washington 12 21,343 19,545 6.69 Newark 13 21,631 14,350 7.32 Louisville 14 19,177 14,670 6.87 Cleveland 15 18,411 16,692 5.56 Pittsburgh 16 16,182 14,224 6.05 Jersey City 17 16,687 9,867 8.37 Detroit 18 15,636 14,668 6.42 Milwaukee 19 14,226 13,048 6.48 Albany 20 14,105 8,748 7.94 Providence 21 14,775 9,227 7.46 Rochester 22 12,213 11,649 6.36 Allegheny .• .....23 10,147 8,347 6.37 Richmond.....* 24 9,793 8,033 6.35 New Haven... ,*...i25 10,482 8,100 6.28 Charleston 26 9,098 6,861 7.14 Indianapolis ~27 9,200 7,820! 6.17 Troy 28 9,302 6,893 7.88 Syracuse 29 8,677 7,088 6.07 Worcester 30 8,658 4,922 8,35 Lowell 31 7,649 6,362 6.43 Memphis...., 32 7,824 C,4CB 6.28 Cambridge... 33 7,897 6,348 6.24 Hartford 34 7,427 6,688 5.56 Scranton 35 6,642 6,646 6.21 Reading : 36 6,932 6,294 6.39 tpatterson;... 37 7,048 4,603 . 7,22 Kansas City, Mo 38 6,685 - 6,424 6.95 Mobile 30 6,301 6,738 6.58 Toledo.*. 40 6,457 6,069 6.20 Portland, Me 41 6,632 4,830 6.50 Columbus, O 42 6,790 6,011 6.24 Wilmington, Del 43 6,808 6,398 5.71 Dayton 44 6,109 5,611 6.43 Lawrence, Mass 45 5,287 3,443 8.40 Utica*...... 46 6,793 4,799 6.00 Charlestown, Mass .... 47 6,155 4,396 6.44 Savannah ...48} 6,019 4,561 6.19' Lynn.,.......; 49 6,100 4,625 6.10 Ball River |SO[ 5,216 2.687 9.96’ Commenting on these figures, the New York Journal of Commerce says: “If there is any one of the nomadic tribe of Manhattan who does not understand' why rents are so high—and constantly advancing—on this island, he can now learn the reason for it by studying the figures given of families and dwell ings. and the ratio of persons to houses. It seems, from a table of fifty cities of the United States, that the number of residences on this island was, in 1870,64,044, and of families, 185,- 789. and an average of 14.72 persons occupied each house. This is by far tne largest ratio of persons to dwellings in the United States, the cities which come nearest to it being Fall Biver, CincmnatLßrooklyn Boston, Lawrence, Jersey m Worcester, and the highest of these (Fall Biver) is only 9.56. Brooklyn, whoso rents sympathize acutely with those of New York, has a ratio already as high as 8.64, leading in that respect even the crowded City of Boston. All about New York wo remark the aame scarcity of tenements in proportion to human bemgs. As, for example, the ratio in Jeree jCity IS 8,37, in Newark 7.82, and in Pat erson 7.22. In regard to the lesser suburbs we have no statistics, but if they could be furnished they would doubtless toll the same story of over crowded dwellings and high rents. Mark the contrast in Philadelphia I She has 127,746 fam ilies and 112,866 dwellings, and a proportion. of only 6.01 persons to each. This should mean a higher average in the health of Philadelphia than that of l{ew York—though we are not sure that she is entitled to boast in that respect; bat it does signify far cheaper rents and a greater de gree of comfort for people in moderate circum stances than is found in New York. Her miles upon miles of' small, tidy dwellings, brick with marble trimmings, or plainer, are the admitted envy of every New Yorker of limited means who passes through that beautiful city. This condi tion of things, as everybody ought to know, cannot possibly be reproduced in New York. Beal estate is so high here that owners can af ford to erect but two kinds of dwellings on which they can hope to make a profit in rent: one, the firstrcdass boose, for the occupancy of the ricn •mho are constantly flocking hither from all parts of .the .United States to spend their money, and the other, the tenement house in which the thrifty.poor may hare a cramped suite .ofippma, at a really moderate price.

CHAPTER HI. “ Now, sir, step up lively, if yon please; there is no time to spare.” Such was the admonition addressed to myself as I struggled up tho gangway of the steamer Baltic, in New York harbor. Under the circum stances, the exhortation was aboat as absurd as an invitation to a one-legged girl to dance the polka. I carried a valise in each hand, a bundle of nnbrellaS under one arm, and a can of con densed milk under tho other ; while Angelina and Clementina held fast to my coat-tails. Mrs. Adam, Jack, and tho faithful Kate toiled after, each heavily encumbered. We present ly reached a .breathing-place, where we could rest, and look down upon the crowd which came streaming in “ jnst like,” said Clementina, “ the animals in my Noah's ark.” Everything was in uproar and confusion. The most heterogeneous articles of baggage came tumbling on board: trunks, band-boxes, ex tension-chairs, rocking-chairs, sewing-machines, barrels of shell-oysters, demijohns of whisky, and such like. People harried to and fro as wildly as the occupants of an ant-hill that has just been kicked over. Dignified merchants and fashionable ladies were jostled at every torn by stevedores and porters. .Everybody called for the Steward, and seemed to think that that in dividual should be, ** like a bird,” in twenty places at once. Hackmen were swearing; passengers expostu- lating ; old maids gesticulating; but, amid all this din and disorder, my.admirable wife retained her composure, and occupied herself by count ing the children and bundles every three min utes to be sure that none were missing. In one corner of the cabin Hero and Loander •were bid ding each other a tender and sorrowful farewell. In another, tho Hon. Joshua Blowhard and a party of select friends were drinking champagne with great lularity and enthusiasm. The hon orable gentleman’s constituency had.acted the Lovito at the last election, and passed him by; but a paternal government had poured oil and wine upon bis wounds by appointing him United States Hinister to the Court of. * Siam; and he was now setting forth upon his mission. A notorious stock-broker, who had fleeced “ the street,” and thought it prudent to visit Europe until the affair should blow over, was also at tended by a coterie of admiring associates, who wished him, if not exactly “godspeed,” at least a pleasapt journey and a speedy retain. Gradually the chaos was reduced to something like order. Stragglers and camp-followers were sent to the rear; or, in other words, visitors and interviewers were summarily sent ashore. The cables were cast loose; the steamer * slowly moved from its mooring; a feeble cheer was raised by the crowd standing upon tho dock. Handkerchiefs were in great request for tho purpose of waving fare wens, and o.f wiping away some unaffected tears. Presently there nelched forth a salute from the Baltic, which was presently returned by a steamer of the Cnnard line > (whereupon several old ladies stuffed their ears with cotton, under the impression that wo would have a continuous cannonade all the way to Sandy Hook) ; and our voyage was prosperously begun. The {prosperity, however, did not . long con tinue. As soon as we got out of tho harbor the breeze “freshened” considerably, which had quite the contrary effect upon tho passengers. Hany of them had emphatically proclaimed their intention of not being sea-sick, and declared that it. was wholly a disease of the imagination. “Ko imagination, -no sea sickness,” seemed to bo their theory, which, if it were only correct, would make Baoj ing quite a pleasure for the writers on tho Even ing Journal. But the facts would not corre spond. The most prosaic of our faUow-voyagers soon began to imagine that something ailed him; and ho was very shortly convinced that ho felt uncommonly queer. Odd, shooting pains were the first symptoms, —very like a stitch in the side, but a little lower down. Then the patient exhibited much pallor of countenance, with fixed and glassy eyes, over which seemed to brood the sense of some coming.calamity. The expression was like that of the old gentleman in Eunch who exclaims with dread, “X hope—yes, X hope—that lobster-salad which I ate isn’t going to disagree with me I”; The firmi symptoms usually cour eifcted of a convulsive gasp, and a rush to the. side of the steamer. .-•* On onr way down the bay, everybody had for-.' tilled himsolf or herself for the impending crisis by disposing of a good deal of supper. The knowing ones took nothing less substantial than hard-boiled eggs and plum-pudding, with the sensible design of stowing their cargo so tight it should not shift from stress of weather The less experienced had an idea that “ brandy and soda-water, were good for sea-sickness ” rand so indeed they are, hut not so good for the pa tient) ; but,' after drinking a few pints of this mixture, it would wabblo about ao violently that only by the most heroic endeavors could the un lucky owner retain possession, and keep himself outside, of lihr property. 1 My own family succumbed at once to the fell destroyer. Our lot was the common fate of all • into each life.some rain must fail; and so much fell into our lives during the. voyage, that we were, metaphysically speaking, quite drenched. On one occasion we were physically drenched also, through incautiously opening the bulla-eye window, which served to render ‘‘darkness vis •iblo” in on? state-room. Our sleeping-accom modations were not magnificent. Airs. A flam and myself, and the two cherubs occupied one . room, which tho agent in Chicago had assured me Would afford us ample scope and verge enough. Mathematically, two halves are only equal to one whole; and the agent logically thought that two half fares could repose where one whole fare might. But theoiy and prac tice are, as I often have observed, very different things. - One cherub went up aloft; the other took the lower berth; my wife occupied the lounge; and there, was nothing left for mo but tho floor. Upon the floor, therefore, I en camped.. I couldn’t seek other quarters, for the duty devolved upon me of waiting upon the ' children, and of trying to amuse them under the most trying circumstances. Their nurse was, as the Stewardess expressed it. so completely : “ flabbergasted” that she hardly lifted her head during tho ilrst week out. We bad to keep tho door of our state-room open (else we snould have been nearly smothered); and once, daring tho still watches of the night, a Norway rat walked over my face, and poked his nose into my ear, by way of scraping an* acquaintance. I gave the Norwegian a vigorous fling, as a hint that his attentions were too particular. For tho rest of tho night. I could not sleep well, through fearing a second visitation. On the next nighL therefore, I re quested Mrs. Adam to “ take the floor,” keeping shady, cf course, in relation to prowling vermin. Mrs. Adam, undisturbed by anticipations of trouble, slept peacefully, and I slept peacefully, also, upon the lounge; and thus we were both measurably happy. It la usually considered the correct thing for travelers to give a poetical description of the fine landscapes and waterscapes which they en counter. During the voyage I didn't see a groat deal of ocean scenery, except through the bulla eye aforesaid And as this narrative is to be strictly accurate and authentic, I will not write any imaginary descriptions. The evening we left harbor, I did, indeed, remain oh deck awhile to soo the ocean-sunset and listen to tho murmur of the waves. But the murmur grew so much like a snarl, and my legs were ao unsteady, that there was very little en joyment. Near me sat a faded, middle-aged woman, who seemed as though she were about to have a fit, “ What is the matter, ma’am ?” I inquired, politely. ■“ Oh!” said she, “I am retch—retch—retch “ Botching ?” said I ([always willing to give a word in season to one in affliction). “ Quite correct, ma’am.” “ Wretch ed!”. gurgled the ancient spinster, casting upon me.a withering look. “Quite correct either way,” said I, good-naturedly. “You pay your passage and you take your choice. 7 ’ It seems in credible, yet it is strictly true, that,. during tho rest of the voyage, that female ignored me com pletely. If we met face to face, she looked past me into infinite epaco with a stony glare which almost curdled zny blood, and gave me a very odd feeling, as though, like “Harley’s ghost, I had been transparent, and she able to. look right through mo and see my back coat-huttons. Upon that same memorable evening, I had a. pensive gentleman for my neighbor on the oppo site side. We did not get much acquainted just then, for lack of time. I felt a respectful inter est and sympathy for him, because £o looked as though he wore a poet, too. He put his hand to his heart, and signed several times. Then he looked tenderly toward the Jersey shore and murmured: Adieu, adieu; my native land Fades o’er the waters bine; The night-winds bowl, the breakers roar, And shriek? the wild sea m—— “Ugh!” exclaimed the unhappy gentleman, completing the rhyme, and simultaneously dis appearing down the hatchway! SERIOUS CHARGES. The Assignee of tlio Lithographing Company, in Bankruptcy, Cborged with Dereliction of Duty—Property Worth 821,000 Valued at 87,000 Finds Its Way Back to the President for a Nominal Value of 81,000. Some rather seriotiß charges are made against the Provisional Assignee of the Union Litho graphing Company, in bankruptcy, in the shape of objections filed to his application for dis charge and approval of sole of the estate. Bichard Waterman, a creditor for $1,028.50, affirms that he has good reason to believe the Provisional Assignee has made sale of the goods belonging to tbs estate so as to benefit the per- 1 sonal representatives of said bankrupt, to the injury of tho creditors; that J. J. Ormond and others, previous to tho petition for tho adjudi cation of the Company, appraised the estate, with the view of purchasing it, at the valne of $21,207.63, and actually offered $16,000, and $2,000 in hills, payable to Morey, tho President, therefore, said Morey refusing the same on the ground of insufficiency; that George H. Laflin ■was appointed Provisional Assignee on the 12th of November, 1872, and canned an appraisement to be mode, which showed tho same property for which SIB,OOO had been offered as aforesaid to be worth only $12,061.23; that said property was not perishable in its nature, but, notwithstanding, said Laflin sold it to E. Mendel for $7,000, who resold it, shortly after ward, for SI,OOO, to tho wife of Morey, the Pres ident aforesaid, who now uses it in continuing the business as though no bankruptcy and no sales had taken place. The petitioner prays that tho Assignee be reinvested with title to the prop erty, and that the entire proceedings be referred to Begiatcr Hibbard, to take proof on these alle gations. Lateb—Similar objections wore filed by Meyer & Co., with a few additional allegations of an unimportant character.

VIEWS OF A PLOWHOLDER, Dwioht, m., June i, 1873. To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune : ; Bib : In your paper of May 31, in a very ad mirable article upon the tariff question, you say: “ Free-Traders contend that the object of iron industry is to bane iron and that, if there is any nay that yon can procure two pounds of iron with the same amount of labor as you now procure one, that way is the boat. That is com mon sense. Every man knows that one pair of boots is better than none, and that two pairs are better than one. Is not the whole object of life to. gel something ? Yon make a newspaper to §et money; I raise com to get money, when I uy yonr paper, you never stop to ask me if I can afford it, or tell me that I bad better “ en courage home-industry ” and support my own Tillage-paper, no matter what are the hardships which the countiy-editor has to undergo to print his paper; but, by force of competition, with capital and brains, yon furnish such a paper that I am obliged to take it. An iron stove, for example, has no other busi ness to me except to furnish beat. I care cot whether that stove be made in Pennsylvania. Massachusetts, Illinois, or England, so long as it fulfills the functions for which it was made, namely: to give heat. And sol say that, as the consumers of stoves are far greater in numbers than the producers of stoves, yon have no right to enhance the price of the raw material by a tax for the benefit of a special class of pig-iron makers, so as to deprive mo of the right of pur chasing a stove in the cheapest market. Tins is stealing, and it is what the farmers begin to see • is the foundation and root of all tkeir troubles. While they are robbed occasionally by railroads, they are robbed from early mom io dewy eve by this relic of barbarism, a protective tariff. Piowholdeb. | Diseases of Artisans* Gilders are subject to mercurial affections, They suffer from giddiness, asthma, and very frequently from partial paralysis, which often induces a peculiar hind of stammering. As might be supposed, they frequently suffer from .unpleasant ulcers in tbo month, whish is a true salivation. . Miners in tho quicksilver mines mffer from Tertigo, palsy, and convulsions, and survive gen erally but a few months. ; Pottery-glaziers, who use lead largely, suffer a condition very similar to that described above, with the addition of dropsy, loss of teeth, and enlarged Palsy of tne limbs, especially of the.aims, is a common effect of poison from lead. Consumption is common among these* workers. . r f : Glaes-bloweru are tho victims of ; thqse oneo-i *tions produced by the sudden vicissitudes or temperature —rheumatism and various inflam mations. Their eyes are very weal, while they are generally thin and delicate. Stone-cutters inhale the sharp particles, which apt to produce diseases of the lungs. ■ Plasterers suffer from the gases disengaged and from excessive moisture. They suffer very much from labored breathing, have wau, pallid visages, and digest badly. FUera are short-lived. Whether tho metal bo brass or iron, the fine sharp particles make their way into the lungs, whore they develop disease, sometimes asthma, sometimes con sumption. ' * Workers in wool and cotton breathe a close, unchanged atmosphere, while their lungs are filled with the irritating dost of the material up on which they work. AU indoor occupations, with tho present im licrfect notions about ventilation, are more or ess mischievous. Oat-door occupation—farm ing, goldening, and other similar employments— afford, with an intelligent comprehension of the food question, the best opportunity for health and long life. Driving a stage or express wagon, with frequent leaving for the delivery of pack ages, traveling through the country on foot as a book-agent—these and similar employments are perhaps not inferior to farming and garden ing. . A French religious sect, called “ Derbisla.” has lately become known to Frenchmen at large through the court-martial of a soldier belonging to it for insubor dination, The tenets of this sect are principally em bodied in the doctrine that human life is absolutely sacred, and that the profession of arms is in itself a crime.
