Tbe following are the resolutions adopted by the New York State Republican Conven tion, at Saratoga, September 7, 1870, at which Convention Gen. Woodford was nom inated for Governor, and Dewitt C. Little john for Lietenant-Govcrnor. The resolu tions were written and reported by Senator Conklin : ' '' RESOLUTIONS. The Republicans of the State of New York, in Convention assembled, report to the people and present the iollowing reso lutions : Resolved, That the national administration under President Grant has in all respects kept faith with the people, and fully estab lished its title to their confidence and sup port by reducing the national debt ; by the unparalleled financial achievement of paying in eighteen months, in addition to alt ac cruing interest, one hundred and seventy millions of principal; by restoring the na tional credit at home and abroad, and with rapid strides bringing near the restoration of specie payment; by largely increasing the revenue of the country under diminished taxation through the honest enforcement of the laws, and at the same time greatly de creasing tbe expenses of the Government, and of the collection of the revenue by pro viding for the relief of the people from eighty millions of existing taxation and lim iting the subjects of revenue as to lighten the burdens of all classes of the people ; by maintaining honorable peace with all na tions, while carefully vindicating our own ' rights, and advancing the name and honor of the American people among the nations of the earth ; by so dealing with the In dian tribes as to avert the chronic wars which have hitherto drawn so deeply lroin the blood and treasure of the coun try; by providing a system for fund ing the national debt, by which its in terest will be largely diminished and a just portion of the burden carried over to the fast growing population of the future ; by encouraging andnally securing tbe adop tion of that constitutional amendment by which the rights and liberties of all classes of citizens, without regard to past condi tions, are placed by the fundamental law on a footing of universal equality ; by comple ting the construction of the rebel States by measures designed to secure justice to all, permanent peace to the country ; and these it has done, without display, but with a firm and quiet hand that gives promise by continued progress in the same direction of sure prosperity and happiness to the country. Resolved, That the Republicans nf the United States of America send congratula tions to the United States of Germany, and heartily join with onr Germen brethren in rejoicing at the righteous victories of the fatherland, and fondly trust that the brave people who have given a republic to France may soon establish free institutions in their own country. ! . Resolved, That we hail with unmingled joy a new republic in France, and the over destruction oi a usurper s ciaim to dynastic power. v Rooked, That .we sincerely sympatize with tbe people of Cuba in their struggle for liberty .against a despotic government, in whose administration they have no share. Resolved. That the Democratic State ad ministration has not shown itself entitled to the confidence or support of the people of this State, because it has put itself into the hands of the close and irresponsible political corporation which has so long ruled the City of New York, and made the wealth and po wer of that city subserveient only to its own selfish and corrupt purposes, and is now seeking to make the State itself a wider field for the same abuses and corruptions; because it has so mismanaged the canals of the State, that while the expenses are large ly increased, the revenues are nearly destroy ed, and deficits have taken the place ol the annual surplus of more than2,000,000,while the tolls have been reduced with such unjust discrimination as to confer the chief bene fits upon the products of the other States, ' while many products of our own State are unrelieved; it has burdened the canals with a host of unnecessary officers ; it bos permit s ted the State claims for damages to be re vived for the benefit of its partisans, and is seeking to transfer the debt now charged upon the revenues of the State to the shoul dere of the tax payers of the State alone, while other States will reap the chief bene fits of the change ; and because it has up held with all its power the acknowledged frauds and crimes upon the ballot-box through which it has been elevated to pow er and enabled to misgovern the State. Resolved, That the common school system of tbe State must be maintained, and that we condemn all appropriations for the es tablishment or maintenance of sectarian schools or institutions as hostile to the spirit of the constitution and the religious liberty uud equality it secures to a". Retohed, That soj long as the people of towns, villages, and cities have the right by law to license tbe sale of intoxicating liquors in their several localities, they also by a ma jority of votes should have the right to pro hibit such sales. Resolved, That it is the duty of all honor able citizens, aud the firm determination of the Republican party, to preserve the puri ty of the ballot-box in such a form that the vote of every lawful elector shall count as it is cast, and not be nullified by fraud or crime: that we demand tbe enforcement of all laws, and especially such as have been enacted by Congress, and may be enacted in the Federal courts, which arc designed to prevent tbe violation of the naturalization ' and election laws oi the country ; that, lay ing aside all individual preferences, the Re publicans of New York will, with one heart nd one mind, strive to redeem our State from the rule of those whose power was fir3t obtained by fraudulent votes, and by a dis honest count of votes which were never p llled. SPEECH OP GEN. WOODFORD. Gen. Woodford, in accepting the nomina tion, spoke briefly, as follows : , Fellow Republicans : With grateful heart I thank you for this generous welcome. I accept tbe trust you offer and take the flag of tbe old Kcpuoncan party on tne canvass on which we enter. With your sympathy and help, with the votes and prayers of the honest and true men ot tne Mate, we win bear that flag to victory in November and plant it once more where it rightfully be longs upon tne state uouse at Aiuany. So often and so long has the honest vote of tbe rural districts been overborne by the frauds of tbe two great cities of New lork and Brooklyn, that our mends have natu rally become discouraged. But in the name ot the good men of those cities I promise jou to night that we will eniorce the Jaws, protect the purity of the ballot boxes in November, and meet the country with a vote from the metropolis that shall redeem the State and secure au old fashioned union vic tory. In this contest men are nothing. We seek to crush corruption, to enforce the right ot the people to honest elections, and to sus tain the administration of our pure and brave President Let us, one and all, lorget every difference, take the old touch of elbow, all heartily resolve to do our duty, and rev erently commit the result to that sure Prov idence which rules alike among men and over States. For the Standard. Mb. Editor : As " fcrary curiosity I send you the proceeun w the new Conser vative commissioners of Randolph who qual ified the 5th Sept, inst. Sheriff Trogdon tendered his official bond on said day and the said commissioners re fused to accept said bonds on the ground that Trogdon's term of office expired on this day and that Z. F. Rush having been elected sheriff on the 4th of August last was in law the sheriff of Randolph county. There was no objection tb the penalty of the bonds or the sufficiency ot the securities, an objec was, however, -made to the bonds on the ground that the securities qualified before the chairman of the board of the former commissiohers, but the main ground of ob jection was the first that Trogdon's term expired on the 5th of September, 1870, and that by virtue of the act of Assembly, rati fied in March 1870, that Rush was elected sheriff. On the evening of the 6th September and after Trogdon's counsel lelt Asheboro' there was another record made relative to the sheriffs, to wit : That the office of sheriff, held by R. F. Trogdon, be declared vacant by reason of the refusal of said Trogdon to renew his of ficial bonds in accordance with Sec. 3, Chap. 169, ot the acts of the General Assembly, ratified March 28th, 1870, and by reason of the failure of said Trogdon to produce the receipts ol the Public Treasurer, &c. It i3 ordered and adjudged that Z. F. Rush be appointed to fill the vacancy created by the failure and refusal of said Trogdon to com ply with the provisions of Sec. 3, Chap. 169 of the acts of the General Assembly, ratified March 28th, 1870, and Sec. 9, Chap. 103, Revised Code, in the event that the said Trogdon could hold over as claimed by him." The above is not a full copy of the non sense as the record w'ril show, but let us see : 1st. Trogdon's term expires and Rush is the sheriff by act of the General Assembly. 2nd. Trogdon's term is declared vacant and Rush is appointed sheriff. 3rd. Trogdon tendered his bonds and did not tender his bonds. If this is Conservative rule, if this is the virtue and intelligence of the county, save us from ignorance. Randolph is rising. I might further add that all these records were made at the instance of the lawyer, Samuel, whose dictates are a law to the pre sent commissioners. God save the State- Citizen. For the Standard. Letter from Robeson. Mr. Editor. Had the developments of the last two weeks of August appeared dur- T -1-1 , IV-trKCoiut party oiioru ftrtiiiawoaid ha'.c made u. far different record from the one which trea son and supineness have done for it There is, however, enough, thank God, of recu perative power remaining to restore all that has been lost, and to leave a surplus of un expended vitality sufficient, if properly managed, to buna a citadel ot principles, which in all coming time, the murderous waves of the " Invisible Empire and White Brotherhood," will in vain strike against Tbe signs of the times are propitious. Straws are nothing but litter, but straws otten in dicate the direction of the wind. The Sen tinel, with a peculiar gusto, appends to the names of its friends recently elected to the Legislature, the significant letter D, and the Sentinel is right. What else are tbey, if not Democrats, and therefore the very men whose nnholv bands are yet red with the blood ot slaughtered patriots whom they slew when defending the temple of our lib erties. And yet its confere ot tbe twinkling eastern Star having in itself more light as to the traud by which these political incendia ries engineered themselves into power, re moves the obnoxious D, and inserts in its stead, the more euphonious C. The Star evidently is not prepared to raise the cur tain and expose the farce behind, to the gaze of the public at present. Its sympathies evi dently are not Democratic, and it is not therefore prepared to become one ot the con spirators without some quid pro quo. The Star man has not received a public ovation. No one bos as yet dragged .him in a trium phant chariot from one end of Wilmington to the other, with some of the truculent darkies of that famous city harnessed to its wheels. He has not received bis quota of buttermilk and other " fixins." Nor has he been purchased to sing pams for murderers and crimioals. by a new press and palatial residence. When these things are done, it' will be time enough for him to acquiesce in the Sentinel's D's. We doubt very much if he will do it even then, for he is made of better and sterner stuff than is infamous Joe. The 8tar is honest in believing and acting its Conservatism, so-called, and when be awakes fully to tbe deception which, has been practiced on him and on other good old line " Whigs " tn this State, the present Democratic conspirators will bate to stand from under. . And this awakening will not be long deferred. Tbe Whigs have lent themselves for a season as beasts of bur den, to carry the Democrats into power. But even the patient ass will not tarry long before an empty crib without giving utter ance to some of their sonorous solos, pecu liar to its race ; accompanied by some vig orous indications of dissatisfaction, from the hinder pendals. - The Star1 emendations arc at least suggestive, and we hail them as the one swallow which, if not Spring itself, is the harbinger thereof. The course of its cotcmporary, published in the same city, is in striking contrast to that of the Star. The Journal is the true exponent of the Democratic party in this section, and it must be said in its favor, that it never emits an uncertain sound. It al ways has the key of the Democratic heart Ot JNortli (Jaroiinb. ine oenunet is a mere parasite, the outgrowth ot the putrefaction of the political bodies that died with Calhounism and secession in 1865. And true to its instincts the Journal, not long since, blew its bugle to its adherents to en ter upon a war mf social ostracism upon Senator Pool and Judge Settle. It takes its ground manfully and declares that it is now prepared (of course since the election) to deny to a Senator and a Judge of the Supreme Court tbe courtesies due to gentlemen in their native State. We cannot but admire the manly openness of this declaration. Though all the tapers of his party in the State entertain the same sentiments, there is not one among them who is fearless enough to avow it as the Journal man has done. Wc thank him for his candor, and could wish thai all "Conservative" editors in North Carolina would imitate his example. It is well, however, in view of the declar ation alluded to, that the Republican party should scrutinize closely tbe events of the day and their connection with the Journal. We all know that the editor oi the Journal brought out as candidate for Congress the member elect, Col. Waddell, that he backed and sustained him throughout, and that the Wilmington Journal is the home organ ot Col. Waddell, necessarily speaking bis sen timents. At all events, from the intimate relations existing personally and politically between Col. Waddell and tbe editor, tbe presumption is strong, amounting almost to demonstration, that the Wilmington Journal would not utter anything to which Col. Waddell, ot Wilmington, member elect of Congress on the Conservative ticket would object. Is not this fact a warning at this time to our Representatives and Senators in Congress to beVare how they lavish their gifts upon those who are prepared, as they become relieved from political disabilities, to impose the most revolting of all disabili ties ? because they pursue a man into the social circle, and deprive him of all that makes life pleasing or desirable. Ought our people, at this time, in their official capaci ty in Congress, to allow the disabilities of Waddell, under these circumstances, to be removed We think not And we think, moreover, that any Republican who will tavor it is digging bis own political grave. Whatever may be the fate of that party in the luture, the man who will vote to remove tbe political disabilities of the Journal man's' candidate, is as dead in that forty as Julius Coesar is in Kome. Tbe JournaTs spirit is the spirit of the In visible Empire, and ol the White Brother hood. It prevails in this County because it is fostered by the public press. In McEach ern's Township, in this County, the col ored people, by the advice of their friends, selected their Township officers without regard to party. They were instructed by their friends to vote for those in the Conservative party in whom they had tbe most confidence. They did so, and elec ted tor magistrates Dr's. McDougal and McLean. The latter President of Edinboro' Medical College, and the former an eminent practicing physician of the township. Both are high toned North Carolina Scotchmen of intelligence and ability, and both arc members of the Presbyterian church. They arc men in whom the colored people have confidence, and never were known to have anything to do with politics, and least ot all with Republican politics. They were chosen for their moderation, honesty and capability; but because they were moderate and not im bued with the persecuting spirit of the In visible Empire, and were elected by the col ored people, all the other Conservative township officers resigned and refused to act officially. Dr's. McDougal and McLean are also attacked by the Euklux papers in all this section of country and are being charged with having sold themselves for a mess of pottage to tbe Republican party. They are arc now being injured in their proies sional capacity, as well as in their social relations. It is very doubt ful whether they can reside much longer in that Township; for every effort is being made to injure and destroy them with the'r fellow citizens. These things are hard to bear, but they are encouraging indications to the party, the barbarism of the Demo cratic party will come to its rescue and save it from tLc rcruJ cf ;ts "cv.'n blt"ww tbe past Let us gird on our armor afresh for tbe conflict. Let us quit mawkish senti ments about political disabilities, and leave these men drinking the bitter waters which they have pressed to their own lips. Wc can save the country if we will. l ours, BLUE SPRINGS. The General Assembly. We eive below a list of members elect to the next General Assembly which we believe to be correct. SENATORS. 1st.

A petition is now in circulation in Cana da, and a similar one will probably be pre pared and circulated in the Lower Provinces, asking the Sovereign of England to appoint eleven commissioners in England to repre sent her interests ; eleven commissioners in Canada to represent the interest of the Do minion, to meet in convention in November next, in New York or Montreal, with eleven commissioners to be appointed by the Pres ident of the United States. The topics for discussion by the Commission will be the relations between England and her colonics in America : between the Colonies and the United States; between England "and the United States ; and, lastly, as between the three countries, "the question of the future of North America." The aim of the convention will be " to obtain the sense of the three peoples as to, first, the retention or modifi cation of the present system ; or, second, the establishment oi an independent dominion, with or without British alliance, or under the protectorate of (Mat Britain, or that of Great Britian and tife United States ; or, third, the union of British America with the United States, England consenting." It is proposed that the commission shall be paid only their actual expenses; that the deliberations shall be public, and that no general report be adopted, " unless by a ma jority of every delegation, but' each delega tion to report upon the entire subjection to the government of its country, such reports oecoming thus the ground work of future action.'" : . . These are the general objects of the pe tition now in Circulation in Canada, to which it is proposed to secure the signa tures of at least one hundred thousand of the people of that country before it is car ried to England and presented to the Sov ereign and British Parliament Marshal McMahon. Marie Ed me Patrice Maurice, Duke of Ma ecnta. and Marshal McMahon, whose death in the heroic defense of ' a falling empire may well have been envied by the Emperor himself, was of Irish descent, but was born at Autun in 1808. Educated at the military school of St. Cyr, he entered the army at an early ace, and won his first laurels in the Algerian wars. In 1832 he participated in the siege of Antwerp, on the staff of Gen. Achard. Subsequently, in the African cam paign, he signalized himself at the storming of the sate of Constantine, a scene of car nage which has been brilliantly put on can vas by Horace Yernet Rising successively in grade, he became a brigaoier-general in 1848. Upon the return of Canrobert from the Crimean war disabled, - McMahon .was appointed to succeed him as general of di vision, and had the great glory of carrying the Midakoff by storm, for which service he was decorated with the Legion of Honor and made an honorary Knight Grand Cross of the Order ot Bath. His title of Duke of Magenta was derived from the battle of that name in the war in. Italy, where he showed conspicuous gallantry in command of the Second Corps. He was personally known to Ring William of Prussia, having represented France at his coronation at Berlin in No vember, 1861. Hi3 ill-starred but gallant career in the conduct of the ThircfFrench Army Corps, during the disastrous chances of the past six weeks, is too fresh in the mind of the reader to be retraced. What might have been the result of thecampaign had he been unembarrassed by xie incompetent master, it were idle to speculate. . He was fortunate at all events, in - the time of his ileath,and as to a soldier he would proba bly have desired not to survive the annihila tion of his army. ' ; J ' ; .-. .

The new Minister is both a profound' lawyer and a brilliant jour nalist ' He has been at the bar since 1830, and at one time edited two papers cotempo raneously, the Journal, du Palais and Le Droit, the latter a daily low newspaper. . Al ways anxious to enter political life, be suc ceeded in 1841 in being chosen deputy for Sauthe in the legislative assembly under Louis Pbillippe. There his open and ex treme republicanism at once gave him noto riety, and led him into difficulty. He was fined 3,000 francs and sentenced to impris onmcnt on the charge of exciting sedition, but on a new trial obtained an acquittal. In 1845 be issued a violent socialist mani festo, and thenceforward led tbe ranks of tbe daily increasing republicans, and when, in 1848, Louis Pbillippe sought safety in exile, he became a leading mcmbe of the provisional government, and secured the ad hesion of Lamartine. The reddist of repub licans, his extreme views caused much diffi culty to his associates. At the first presi dential election under the national constitu tion be was tbe presidential candidate of the red republicans, but did not make a heavy poll, the vote standing : .Louis JNapolean, 5,000,000; Gen. Cavaignac, 1,500,000; M. Ledru Rollin, 370,119. He opposed the Roman expedition with great vigor, and, after the coup D etat, be attempted to oppose force by force, but fail ed, and escaped to England, where he re mained until the past week. He was noted there as the confrere of Mazzini and other red republican leaders, and was accused of being concerned in an attempt against tbe life of the Emperor. He steadfastly refused all amnesties, and returned to France when Napoleon bad- lelt it. He will doubtless re ceive a warm welcome here as the represen tative ot a people anxious to follow the ex ample ot the great Republic. National Re publican. . " The Cotton Crop of 1869-'70.

I have learned some interesting details of blonde manufacture. I heard much this summer of manufactured blondc3, and one was pointed out to me as unquestionably a manufactured article. I believed it vugucly, but my interest in the matter was aroused one clay recently, when I called on a friend in the city and saw a most wonderful change in her. Her hair, a week aso a lieht brown, was almost light, with a decided tinge of red in it. I asked explanations, and they were frankly given : she was undergoing the process of being changed into a blonde She told me something of the process. The hair is first shampooncd to clcane it thor oughly of all grease and dirt, and then the. liquid is applied to a few strands of hair at a time. The liquid is colorless and war ranted harmless, ot course. The hair first turns red, and then gradually grows lighter. My friend logically and good-humoredly le plies to remonstrances, that her hair is her own ; her husband likes light hair ; that she is assured by tbe highest authority among hair dressers that the application is not in- iurious to hair cr health. The process costs. where a long, thick suit of hair is to be colored, one hundred and fifty dollars. The German Empire Present and to Come. In view of tbe certain result of the war, it becomes of interest to know the ex tent of the domain which it is proposed to increase by the addition of Alsace and Lorraine. The North German Confederation em braces Prussia, Saxony, Mecklenburg, Schwerin, Saxe-Weimar, Mecklenburg-Stie litz, Oldenburg, Brunswick, Saxe-Meiningcn Saxe-Altenburg , Saxe-C6bur;, Gotha, An- halt. Schwarzbura-Souderhausen, Waldcck, Reyss, Schaumburg-Lippe, Lippe-Demi ld,- Lubec, Hamburg, JJremen. ana tne upper province of Hesse-Darmstadt, with a total population in 1864 of 20,318,722, of which aggregate Prussia is credited with 23,580,- 701. Tne area ot tne conierterauon cm braces 489.940 square miles. If to this we add the South German Confederation, viz Bavaria, Wurtemburg, Litchcnstcin and Hesse-Darmstadt, excepting its upper pro vince, which comprise a population . of 8.524.560. These, with Belgium and Holland and German Austria would complete German unity. The United Germany would have a population of 81,176,796 souls, and would exceed in territorial extent all the powers of the world, except the United States, China, Russia, Turkey and Brazil The only Euro pean country which could at ail approach it in population would be iRussia, but even that populous empire would fall 0,000,000 in the rear ot new Germany. "Under such circumstances it is , not likely that the neutral powers will consent to a very large addition to the territory of North Germany. Nat.

The wife of a farmer residing near Buffalo recently became so much enamored of a cow doctor, who went to attend to her husband's cattle, that she proposed to elope with him to a distant State. He informed the husband about the matter, and, much to his surprise, the latter told him to gratify her little whim. It was then arranged that he should meet her on the outskirts of the farm on Monday last In tbe meantime the husband persuaded -bim to exchange clothes, and when tbe time arrived tor the elopement, he (tbe husband; was promptly on hand. (In the darkness she mistook him forher lover, and the 'joke" was not discovered until their arrival at one of the Buffalo hotels. Tbe cow-doctor was on band with his own wife and between the four of them tbey managed to do justice to an excellent supper and make away with several bottles ot wine. If elopements were usually to have such a jolly termination, the divorce market would soon be obliged to close from lacK oft, business. Many a poor horse gets well nigh used up while he is alive, but wnen ne is dead the process is completed, surely, judging from the account of his end given in the col umns of an exchange. To say nothing of edible purposes which horses are made to serve in Paris, all sorts of dispositions are made of the different parts ot his carcass in the interesis of mechanics, the arts, and the various wants of humanity. His blood goes to the albumen manufacturers, the sugar re finers, and the burners of lampblack ; his mane and tail to the weavers of hair-cloth and makers of sieves and brashes; Lis skin to the tanners and curriers ; his hoofs to the comb factories; his flesh to the rendering vat for its oil ; his stamach and intestines to the makers of strings for musical instru ments, and his bones to the button makers. Even his teeth find their way to the ivory shops. In fact nothing is left of him but bis old iron shoes, and even tnese are naueu up over our doors for good luck. Alas! poor Dobbin 1 Much as yon were worth in the traces, on the road, sensitive to lash and spur, you are worth no less in the sheds and shops of manufacture and trade. Is Sumac Combustible ? As sumac is a very important article of commerce with us, and a number of our citizens arc largely en gaged in preparing it for market, the ques tion whether it is liable to "spontaneous combustion" or not is an interesting one. A week or so ago a large lot was Burned at Tappahannock, and the impression there, Is already stated in the Whig, is that the fire was occasioned by the combustion of the sumac. The Fredericksburg Herald says that some years ago Mr. Hurkamp, tbe pio neer in that business in this State, lost a quantity in this way, and had in conse quence his storehouses so constructed as to give the sumoc free ventilation. Enox & Brother and another party of the same town found that this was the case with some they had stored away before it was prop- eilv cured. It the sumac be property cureu before stored in bulk there is no danger, it is said, of combustion. Richmond Whig. Grammar in the Backwoods. "Class in grammar may come on the floor now.

From Fnend Ellis' weather article we quote the following : " - A private letter received just after our review of Seventh month was closed, and oeanng aate bantee Indian Agency, Nebraska, Seventh month, 20th. contained the follow- ' ing paragraph : . - . -. " We have had a great deal of hot dry weather. Yesterday the mercury rose to 112 . degrees in the shade, and at half past six . o'clock in the evening, when the sun got around to- shine on it, it rose to 123 degrees. To-day it is quite cool the mercury - did not reach 90 degrees. . This Agency is one of those under the care ofFiiends. It is strted that the effect of this beat on the crops is and will be such ' that, were the Indians who have been fondly looking forward to the result of their agri cultural labors left to depend for subsistence on these, without outside aid, they would positively starve." The Chinese. In teaching the Orientals shoemaking at North A" ams one of the in - structors, getting poor nails, broke off three in succession ; in driving them.' Of course he put other nails in immediately beside the stumps. Some time after what was his sur prise to nnd that bis pupa had followed bis example literally, and broken off three nails in the heel ot each shoe. This story is vouched for as literally true.. About 'fifty -of the seventy five Chinese are said to attend meet- - Ing regularly on the Sabbath, the number being divided among the Congregational, the Methodist and tbe Baptist churches. A letter in the traveller from Hong Kong, confirms a recent statement by one of our own contributors, that the families left be hind, by Chinese who come to this country, are sometimes actually sold, to cancel tho debt incurred by the father and husband in securing money to pay his passage to America. Out on tbe Pacific Railroad, the other day, a Eickapoo Indian saw a locomotive coming down the track toward him at the rnto.of forty-milps (in hour. . He though it was 'an'- imported breed ot buffalo, and he was anx-T ious to secure it so as to take the prize at the annual exhibition of tbe Eickapoo Ag ricultural Society. So he fastened one end ot bis lasso to his waist-belt, and when tbe engine got near enough he threw the noose nicely over the smoke stack. Perhaps it is not necessary, but we may as well relate that the locomotive did not stop. The engineer and breman witnessed the most successful attempt to do the flying trapeze made by any Eickapoo Indian upon the plains since the first of last January. There was an abo riginal funeral at tbe next station when the engine arrived. The grave was not large, lor tbey only buried a small piece of copper- colored meat tied to a string and enclosed in a sardine box. The police of London are cautioned "not to use irritating language, even to those offending the law." They are not to inter fere unnecessarily, but when it is their duty to act they are to .do so with decision and boldness. "The police," says the order, " are not to use language to ward persons in their custody," calculated to provoke them; such conduct often crcatesa resistance in in the prisoner, and a hostile feeling among tbe persons present toward the police." And again ;. "The more respectful and civil tho police are on all occasions, the mora they will be respected and supported, by the pub lie in the proper execution of their duty." Paeis. The population of Paris, accord ing to a census taken in 1867, amounted to 2,150,916 souls, of whom 2,028736 were born in France ; that is, 733,478 in ' the depart ment of tbe Seine, and 1,295,258 in other departments.
