fnuul nud corruption existing In tlio

Bcarccly a deputtmcut in that vast es
tabllshmcnt In Which bribery iind cor-

to exist In any public office. And yhit

Tiir first mercantile vesel which
passed through the Sue. Canal was
wrecked Immediately thereafter in the
Keel Sea. Tho superstitious might ac
cept thU as an omen or ill for tho great
work. Tho shipwreck was an unfortu
nate evout truly but only to tho owncrp
of tho vessel and cargo. Numerous suc
cessful voyages, which will soon take
place, will oblitcrato tho dlsastor of tho
ploneor shlp.IMs n matter of speculation
whether the Suez Canal will provo of
any benefit to cither tho Unitod States
or England, though it undoubtedly
will to France. Tho canal tolls will so

Kksimxt for tho Constitution is not a
weakness common to many United
States Senators, in fact most of them
appear to regard it merely as a conve
nience upon width to hang amend
ments, but thero is ono Senator, Charles
I). Drake of Missouri, who really has
no opinion of It tit all, or lor tho bu
prenie Court. This profound statesman
is desirous of preventing, by law, the
Supremo Court from declaring uucon
stltutloiial any act of Congress, right,
Justice, or anything else to tho contrary
notwithstanding.. Ho thinks tho pco
plo know moro law than tho Supreme
Court and thai tho Constltutloius u stu

too. Tremendous mind has Drake !
Oun now Russian possession", Alaska,
has been described so frequently and so
variously thnt wo nro in a hopeless state
of mystification regarding It. First
comes a report, presumed to bo authen
tic, picturing tho natives as savnges,the
land a sterile desert, untenanted even
by fur bearing animals and on whose
rocky and frozen bosom no grain or
edible vegetables can bo persuaded to
grow. And now, Just as wo have set
tled down in this belief, comes'a chap
who has been there, and consequently
knows all about it, who says that the
aborigines are splendid fellows, living
in well built wooden houses, and per
fectly devoted to agriculture. Tho land
produces barloy and other grains in
fabulous quantities.nnd precious stones
areto befoundlylngaround Ioose,vhilst
furs aro a drug in the market.
Now, somebody lies, for it i3 impos
sible to have the same ground at once
sterile and productive, tho Inhabitants
savages and civilized, and furs plenti
ful and not to bo bad.
Wo hear that a Delegate lias been
sent to Congress from this isolated re
gion, which reportis promptly denied at
Washington. .Cannot sorao one give
us a reliable account of our proper

On ! dear, dear! here has tho legisla
ture of Wyoming Territory, gone nnd
passed an act, which tho Governor has
approved and signed, conferrlug the
right of suffrago on women. Just think
for a moment of tho swoct bribery which
must havo been used to secure this boon.
io uso was made of glittering golil or
grimy greenbacks, but tho potent in
fluences of sparkling eyes and rosy lips
were tho means employed. Think of
tho delicious fllrtations,tlio warm kisses
the proflers of marriago which must
havo had existence,and think also tor
resco referent,) of tho blighted hopes,
tiie broken hearts, which will result
from shattered engagements, or, fulling

Ix Sidney Smith's abvlco to his pa
rishioners lie addresses a tow words, to
young women, to this effect : Don't be
lieve In any thlug but the parson and
tho ring I If your lover nays that you
can bo as well without the form as wltl
t, tell him ho is rt scoundrel." It would
be better for girls overywhera If they
would remember that hint. In tho
BIssell divorce caso the woman was
told by tho man thai they might bo
married without any ceremony mar
ried as safely as if" thrco clergymen'
performed tlio service. Tim oxponont
of tho law In this case, John U. BIssell
of Brooklyn.took thoglrl n dri voto O.n
tral Park ono day, and putaringon her
finger, saying, "This Is your wedding
ring; we aro married," Nothing could
bo simpler. Afterward they went to
live Jn n boarding house, where BIssell
acKnowieuged the woman to bo his wife.
Who could not supply the flnlnh to the
story? Just before tho wife became- u
mother, John Ii. BIssell abandoned her,
But In his Interpretation of the law to
his Intended dupe he 'was. nearer tho
truth than he supposed. Judgo Barn
ard has ruled that tho marriago was re
ally valid according to tho laws of this
Stute. "All that Is requisite Is that tho
parties should bocapabtaof contracting.
and that they should actually contract to
defenco which tlio Court stigmatized In
very strong languago, will havo to make
provision for tho woman ho says ho
"only" intended to deduce. So much
for ouo cu.o of rascality but wo advjse
young women to take BJdeny Smith's
counsel, and Insist on having the parson
and the ring at their wcddlog.
