Sunday, says the New York Evening Mail, has become the fashionable reception day. Missionaries for Fifth avenue arc much need ed. The waistcoats, after the fashion of a gen tleman’s vest, which were worn by the ladies some yean ago, have been taken into favor again. Young ladies do not like the spring shape of hats at all. They declare them to be “very trying,” and say that hardly auy one looks well in them. A Vermont paterfamilias has sued his next neighbor for giving his family small-pox, and the defendant threatens a counter suit on the ground that the plaintiffs took it from him violently without his permission. A Michigan paper boasts of a dentist who can extract fourteen teeth iu fifty-five seconds We know an old lady who can take out that number of teeth in half the time, aud she isn’t much of a dentist either. A young English clergyman in a country parish thus reveals some of the secrets of the clerical prison house: “Oh, there are four of us whose churches are neighboring, and we have a whist party every week, and the loser writes the Sunday sermon for the party.” The Connecticut Historical Society has re ceived a tasteful gift, in the shape oi'a clock, cased in a conical bombshell used in the Ger man siege of Paris. What this has to do with t ie history of Connecticut is not appar ent, nor-why a memento of war time should be turned to a time-piece. One of the younger officers of the lava beds received a letter from his “br ght particular’’, which contained the following touching pas sage: “And if anything should happen to you, do make some arrangement to have your hair recovered and sent on. It is the ex act color of mine, and I can’t get a pair ot curls of the right shade any where here.” Matthews’ attendant in his last sickness in tended to give the parent some medicine, but a few- moments after it was discovered that the medicine was nothing but ink, which had been taken from the vial by mis take. “Nevermind, my boy; nevermind,” said Ma thews faintly;’‘I'll swallow a bit of blotting paper.’’ The Danbury News says: “A Thomaston reader complained to us of his pastor, who persists in praying with one eye open.

SYNOPSIS OF THF BILL FILED AT HARTFORD. A special despatch to the Boston Traveller from Washington, gives an abstract ot papers in the Credit Mobilier suit filed at Hartlord. The bill recites that the United States of America, by George Henry Wdliams, their Attorney General, bring tbis bill of complaint against the Union Pacific Railroac Company, which is located in Boston President Horace F. Clark, of New York. The Credit Mobilier of America, President Sydney Dillon, ot New York; the Wyoming Coal and Minlug Co.; the Atlantic and Pacific Telegraph Co., Presi (lent, John Dull', of Boston; the Pullman Palace Car Co., President, Geo.

The bill then states the provis ions of the act of Congress authorizing the suit, and the different acts creating these cor porations, the ' rganization of the company and construction of the road, Ac. ;c’ams that the conditions and stipulations for making lb works more complete, in conformity with said acts ofCoogres , have not been conform ed and complied with to the satisfaction of the United States; that the comp my h is fail ed and refused to pay the interest which has accrued and is accruing on the currency bo ds issued by the United States, and the same lias been paid by the United States as it fell due, to the amount of $0, i93.60l>, while not a dollarofthe bonds thernse ves, upwards of $20,000,000, has been ledeemed, while the whole amount of fitst mortgage bond. $27, 000,000 more, is also still outstanding, the interest alone thereon having been paid ; that land grant bonds have been issued by the company to (he amount of $10,400,000, of which $8 811,000 are still unpaid, hiloit in tends to go on selling said Dnds and claims the right to s 11 them and apply the pro ceedstothe redemption of the land grant bonds, to that extent exhausting the se curity of tho United States for the repay ment of their bonds; that one million ol in come bonds are issued and outstanding; that bridge bonds amounting to $2,468,000 are also outstanding; that there is a floating debt of $2,000,000 and stuck to the amount of $36,782,300; that the coal contracts and teases are illegal; that the arrangement with the Atla- tic Pacific Telegraph Company is a fraudulent device to make for the managers more profit than they could lawfully make. anutouepriv me united states oi its law ful security and advantage from said tele graph : that the arrangement witn the Pull man Palace !ar Company is one by which the car compai.y obtains privileges and profits tiom tli3 railroad company not jbr the inter est of the company to give, and by which the managers and stockholders of the railroad company, or some of them, fraudulently <>t> tain lor themselves profits for the use of the road, which in equity, belonged to the rail road company; that the agre ment.w,‘L"1,e Omaha Bridge Transfer Uompa yw fraudu lent; that the Union Pacific Bailroad Com pany is insolvent; that the cost of tbe rail road and telegraph lines was considerably less than one-halt tbe sum represented by tbe ag gregate ol the stock and other pretended lia bilities of the company outstanding; that tbe larger part of tbe stock and bonds of the company, before mentioned, was issued in the name of tbe company by its managers, not in tbe interest of the company, but to en rich themselves in a manner and for purposes unthorized by law; a large majority of the stock now habitually voted u|ton as ol right, in electing officers and Controlling th affairs of the compauy, is stock issued in a manner not authorize i ba law, which was never paid for in cash, or in any other thing of an equiv aleut value to the company; a large part of its income is used habitually in paying its managers high interest on the hoods issued unnecessarily, without lawful motion or ade quate considera'ion; the earnings have not been sufficient to pay accruing interest on its floating debt, or tbe s* veral classes of bonds issued bv tbe company; $10,000,000 of its in come bonds, so far called, will be due in Sere teinber.

Its principal managers treat it as depending o.i their personal credit to save it from bankruptcy, and make a pro fit by loaning it money fo. high interest and commission. From the Lonilou "Spectator. The Progress of the Spanish Revolu tion. Spain i3 evidently in for much more than a a ’* el'an8es °f government. She is un verv a century later, s metliing derwent ini same process that France un tollTwL voi" ‘Tat of 1789 and the form—milder dmu* undergoing it in a milder acter of the social movPTn.mts'^\!Lnhe < hfr'i so much wonder, enth^J,”1^^ then, partly on account of the more phiee inatic nature of the Spaniard, which does not seem to take the malady of suspicion nearly so violently as the nature of tiie French man. There was—as De Tocqueville very well brought out in those latest chapters of his book on the Fiench Revolution whieh Mb. Henry Reeve has just added to the sec ond edition of his excellent translation—a universal expectation of completely new so cial forces and new possibilities of govern ment, pervading Europe for year* before the French Revolution, an expectation which added enoimously to tue exciting character of that great event. Throughout Europe men believed that they were on the eve ot changes in which society would be quite trans figured, and this belief, which, curiously enough, pervaded most completely not those classes whieh were most miserable, but tlio-o which were far above want and living in lux ury, stimulated every wave of emotion and passion which spread over France, and intox icated the actors in those great scenes. Spain has at least the advantage that tho changes whieh her political and social life seen ed destined to unde go, are no longer wailed for with aw?, as il'tbev were the re suits ut the inspiration of asorl ofdivine muse. The excitement of the drama has been in great degree discounted by the history of the revolutions of 1789, 1830 and 1848. Spain knows that no goldeu era of society i > to be expected from any changes, however funda mental; that the alternative between anar chy and strict taxation under some form of government s the only alternative to be hop ed for; that the most enthusiastic republics have once ami again been much severer suf lerers than even despotic states: that if a fed eral republic is to succeed, the federal repub lic must not have to restore a social paradise, but must drill its troops, impose discipline, resist riot, adjust taxation and eufoice jus tice. There is now, thanks to France, no vast il lusion, no rainbow of imaginary hope, to dazzle the eyes even of ignorant Spain. There may be great changes for the better, or great changes fo*- the worse—and for a time,at least, we fear the latter aie the more likely—but there will be no such wild intox ication as alone rendered the gieat French agony of iiope and fear impossible. And for tunately, too, Spain takes differences of po litical opinion easier (ban France. Carlists, Alfousists Radicals and Republicans get on very fairly together, except during the crisis of a physical straggle. Thai '‘fear" which M. Gambe'ta justiv tills us is the great curse of France does not seem to take root easily in Spain. The danger rather is of an apathy too great to admit of the people taking any side definitely, so as to render organization possible. As the French have always had a genius for centralization —which it is a pity, by the way, they did not manage to impart more effectually to the Spaniards during their occupation of Spain—the Spaniards appear to have always had. and slill to have, a taste for decentralization, and tbe fear is that this will so favor disorganization as to render the pro cess of uew political crystallization difficult, tardy and inadequate. The example of Madrid has none of the fascination for the other great cities of Sp in, for Barcelona, and Seville, and Malaga, th t the example of Paris lias for Lyons,and Marseilles,and Bour deaux. This indeed is the argument for that ‘•federal” republic which is now apparently in the ascendant. But tbis fact makes the political future of Spain even more uncertain than the political future of France ever was. Spam is like a ship built in cellular compart ments, less easy to wreck as a whole, more easy to break up into distinct paits. Now that the army is in active decomposition, and that the voice of the only actual authority left is favorable to federalism rather than uni fication. it becomes a very difficult matter in deed to anticipate the course of political change. Killing Canada Thistles. The Country Gentleman iumishes the fol lowing directions lor subduing these pests. Advice in this direction is almost as plenty as the thistles on an illy-kept farm. A young farmer inquires how to destroy the Canada thistles which have spread in large patches over portions ot his farm. We give him our own expcueucc, which is s'milar to that of many others. It is founded on the well-kuoirn principle in v getable physiology, thi.t p.ants cannot live umess mey dan breathe through tbeir leaves. Smo'her them for one summer, and they will perish. This will apply to all weeds that spread by the roots. Our first experiment was made many years ago 01 a rough spot of ground selected for a new garden—the only place where on building a new house, the gardeD could be made. It was near y covered with Canada thistles, milk weeds, and many other weeds. In a single seasoi every one was completely eradicated, and the whole -urface left as clean and mellow as a garden bed. Tbe whole prc cc ss was— deep and repeated ploughing. As soon as any weeds began to peep at tbe sur face, or rather a little before, tbe ploughing was repeated. Tbe intervals between the ploughinss were usually three or four weeks. Four raonths are enoviah 10 kill the weed*. But if they are allowed to get above wuwd. they will soon recover all they have lost by buryiur, and tbe work will be interminable. Many years after the above experiment, we had occasion to prepare a six acre grass field for wheat. Most of it was densely covered with Canada thistles. The work was com menced in June, and the thist es, which had already fo med their blossom buds, were turn e deeply and completely under by means of a large sod-plougli. Onceamoinli the ope a tion was repeated, until at the la-t ploughing, late in September, when tbe whole surface was clean and mellow as an ash-heap, the wb >at was sown. No thistles made their a - penrance tb" following year except along the fence, where the ploughing was not done. Many other experiments have since been equally effectual. Some precautions must be observed. Tbe operation is most easily and successtully performed on heavy soils, which tie more compactly, and more effectually ex clude the air. On ttic light soils the opera tion is more difficult—more care must be ta ken to perform the ploughing deeper and more perfectly, and it must be icpeatcd often er. The owner can judge best on the spot, ar d must see that the weeds are kept completely under. Again, if there arc stumps, stone heaps, ot other obstacles in the way of per fect ploughing, it will be tound that the weeds have kept their hold in those places. The obstacli s must 'heretore be removed pre viously, if thorough work would te made. If fences inteifere with the Complete eradica tion of the thistles, ihty should be removed if temporary; or a spade should be used in stead of the plough, if there are post and rail fences which are permanent. Many years ago, when pertoimii g these experiments, and when labor was ch> a), we ascertained that land wholly covered with the thistles might be thorough'y cleaned in one season f>r five di liars per acre; now it would cost teu or fitte n dollars. Tbe purchaser ot a farm covered with tbi-tles should therefore make a deduction of about filteen dollars per acre in price for tbe expense of eradication. A Queer Tale of Infatuatto.n\— Among the many laurels which Build Doble, the fam ms jocky, brought away from Cili Hiriiki after the races, last August, was Mr*. Clara Snyder, wile of a Sau Francisco build er. She was so infatuated with him that she openly avowed hei preference tor him, and she came with him to Philadelphia. A tew weeks ago, she appeared again in San Fran cisco, telling ber husband that she had fallen out with Bund, but that she knew be would follow her, and she presumed she should “makeup with the poor fellow.’’ He did fol ow, and ih i quarrel was nicely made up, and. In spite of the physical remonstrance of Mr. Snyder, Budil brought ber away again, with all her possessions. asncGLLANLOlfl NOTICES.
