I have said that Baza ine was low and
avaricious. To justify this1 accusation I
have only to cite what, was well known
to everybody in Mexico.. There was
nothing he would not stoop to to enrich
himself. Among other things, he had
in the name of others, of course two
stores in the city, the one a grocery, the
other a draper house, in which were sold
French stuffs aim ost exclusively. - In
this manner he grew rich very rapidly,
for he found means to avoid paying any
transportation or duty.
In order to account for his rapidly
increasing wealth, or rather to conceal
the means by which it was' acquired, he
gave out that the Mexican lady whom he
married was very rich. This was en
tirely false; the girl he married, and
who is now his wife, was poor.

A few weeks ago there arrived in New
York city from New Orleans, the World
ssys, a dapper little Frenchman named
Paul Msgner. He had l-n a practicing
chemiMt in New OrUans, and claimed to
be the discoverer of a wonderful process
by which, flax or cot tod fiber could be
converted into silk, or into a texture so
nearly like silk as to defy all ordinary
inspection and tents. The results of this
process of which the Frenchman alone
had the secret had already been ex

So thorough and deceptive was the
change which it accomplished, that the
majority of such persons ceroid, only im

credulity at the assumption thai the
specimens submitted to them by the
Frenchman were ' other ' than genuine

Ten years ago Charles Windsor was

he still remains. Previous to . his defal-

from Paterson. Suddenly the French

InjBvery wound of the skin or muscle,
nerves are severed. The restoration of
the functions of feeling, and motion,
with the progressive healing of "the
wound, shows that the nerves are like
wise capable of reparation. The renewal
of nerve connection has been watched
in cases where, as is sometimes neces
sary, a section of a large nerve has been
cut out. In a couple of months after
the nerve is cut, a gray lump appears on
one extremity' of the severed nerve.
Growth proceeds towards the opposite
nerve end until a new connection is
made, at -first more slender than the
original; but by degrees the nerve ele
ments increase .in' size and' whiteness,
until, in from four to six - months,- the
nervous cord is fully : restored. The
process, it is said, goes, on, even when
two inches of nerve has been excised. 1 -

A letter from Mempius. Tena. asyf :
Complaints are rxmrinjr iafrora all the
surrounding, counties of Ihe fearful de-1
struction of horses and mutes cry uunalo
gnats. Many small planters, especially
colored ones, are ruined by having their
only horses or mules killed, sad being
unable to replace tnera at a tune wnea
they are so badly needed. The Ledger
publishes a letter from a planter near
Macon, Fsyeue county, which says :
Not tens than two hundred horse and
mules have died daring the past three
days withia ten miles of this place. I
went down to my farm yesterday, diitrnt
six miles, and counted thirty-eevea dead
on the' way. I have lost four on my
farm; and Dr. Hunter five on bis, while
some planters have lost as high as thirty
head. It looks like starvation to a people
without money. Borne of the farmers
will be compelled to turn out part' of the
crop planted, as they have no caooey lo
