WEDNESDAY MORNING,MAY 28. 1873 Gossip and Gleanings. — The agricultural market being flaccid, Kan sss is cultivating flassced crops to meet it. a’I Hombay-stlc Yo 'styie'0 ^ tUey “re n0t at Little girl at the b^t .. this is very old rutter—I’ve r, » 1 Mamma, in jt». 'e found a gray hair With admirable inconsequence the rural press is deducing a scarcity of champagne be cause the French vine crop is a failure. Memphis, Tenn., doesn’t wish to appear too boastful, but really thinks it has had a case of genuine cholera. The religions we call false were once true They were the affirmations of the conscience correcting the evil customs of their time.— Emerson. It is said of Captain Jack, that he never takes anything to drink. Probably he’s the only temperance man in the country who docs’nt. There is a good deal of 9onnd wisdom in the suggestion of the fanner, “I*' you wan your boy to stay at home, don’t bear too hard on the grindstone when he turns the crank.” ' a The Louisville Courier-Journal thinks that the most remarkable thing in the history of journalism is the fact that not a single Ameri can newspaper has spoken of any of the Benders as a “Borgia.” The bare-footed season opens well, al though the boys report a scarcity of these de sirable two-inch hemlock slivers, but th> en gineers ot the Boston, Hartford and Erie road expect to sink a numOer of stakes n this section this summer so we hardly think the Slivers will be missed.—Danbury New$. A united family in New Hampshire consists of four brothers, the shortest of a bom is six feet four. They have Jived together sirce cliildnootl, and, it is almost needltss to add, hold their property giantlv. Brown patronizes a restaurant kept on the “E.iopean p'au.” He goes into the back room and quietly flaps the cover of bis left eye. In a tew minutes a foaming mug of beer appears, ot the g..od old Continental fla vor. An Elm street boy, while under the pain ful hallucination that he was a Modoc, bnried a pin headed arrow iu his father’s leg, on Saturday, very much to the surprise of that individual. The old gentleman recovered sufficiently, however, to impress that scion with tbe belief that he had actually sat on a lava bed. The young men are becoming every day more discourteous, so the girl say. They take theit dogs instead of their lady friends out riding now-a-days. There are advan tages about a dog as a riding companion we must admit. He doesn’t take up much room. He doesn't mase remarks when torses are ac’ing in a manner which requ res your whole attention, aud get enraged be cause you don't answer him. He don’t wear long veils and streaming ribbons to get into your eyes every time the wiud blows. He doesn’t grab at the reins every time your horse shies orstu.nbles aud, moreover,“ma” don’t expect him home at hall-past five. Government and People.—The (Lon don) Pall Mall Gazette, alluding to tbe large emigration from England to the United Stab s, queries why, now that the British ex chequer is full, tbe government “more than paternal” aud every disposition shown to please everybody, the rea bone and sinew of the population should be seeking new ho- es in a foreign land. The Gazette do-s not quite state the situation. The gieat increase of the emigration from Eugland lias Seen in the agricultural population. Por a long series ot years the operatives in tbe manufacturing districts, in suite of nil tbe discru agements under which they have labored, have b<en re ducing their hours of work and increasing the amount of their wages. Meanwhile the ag ricultural laborers have remaineu substantial ly in the position they have occupieo for gen erations, just above the condition of seifs. They have at last awakened to a compaia ti.ely clear idea of hat they are, and what, as men, they are entitled to and might be. It having taken tnein years to arrive at their just view, it is, of course, n it likely that any tem porary argument or fact is likely to weigh much with them in contradiction to their life long experience. For the immensely large majority tbe removal U> this country will prove advantageous. The prospec* opened up to their children will give greater value to their own gaiu. They wii. be able to see in the future what they never could hope lor in the old c lunti-y, a home, owned, and a posi tion dependent only upon character for its re spectability. The youthful and healthy do well to come here; they will find a remuner ation they never l ave known before, and they will be es.eemed—as they esteem them selves.— Providence Journal. A New Game.—Kreigspiel, or “war-play,” is the rage in the English army. On every hand the officers may be seen with little boards befoie them, something hketbose used in chess, but containing maps ol the different Countries. On these maps are placed, con cealed from each other, two armies, with cav alry. artil Vry, and intan try properly represent ed. The maps arc six inches to tbe mile, and follow aceuiately the suiveys of England. Hills are marked by shaded lines, and woods are all defined The length of the moves va ries according to the nature of the troops. The pieces having been arranged, the game commences. Say it is the invasio . ot Eng land. The generals on each side draw up their plans, and toe moves begin according to a defined system. The invading army is to attack London on certain road-, and included in the geneial plan there are some positions of acknowledged impartance. A special idea of th invaders night be that a force of given strength is detached to ry and s cure an Im portant railway jnr ction, while that of the de fenders may be that a torce is sent to bold tbe junction, if possible, and, tf overpowered, destroy it and tall back. According to the skillfulness of the moves, this object is attain ed or defeated. An umpire decides the fact of victory lor eilher side. Number of the Two Sexes ih the Uni ted Statfs.—In numbers, the two sexes are ^erv nearly equal in the United States; males 19,493,555, females 18,064,806; but the distribution is not even. The greatest ex cess of males is found in Idaho (12,184 to 2.715 females) Montana (15,871 to 3,815), Wyoming (7219 to 1899) and Nevada (32, 379 to 10,112). Femtles are in excess in Ala bama (504.560 to 482,470). District of Col ombia (61,287 to 55,159), G .orgia (600 856 to 572.126), Loui iana (336.345 to 328.743) Maine (290 600 to 287,434), Maryland (355 I 246 to 342,226), Massachusetts (568,180 to 585,852), New Hampshire (147,698 to 140 991), New Jersey (363,668 to 353,485) and New York <1.647,214 to ll967.192.) Virginii Vermont, both Carolinas, Uhode Island, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and New Mexico show a like excess ot female population. la Utah there are more males than letnales—28,994 to 2i,090.—From “Galaxy" for June.
