The Hop Reg%Orli or Wisconsin—Hop
Pickers and Who They .4 re.
A correspondent of the Chicago Republi.
tan, writing, from Bamboo Wisconsin de
scribes the great hop growing region of Sank
county. We make a few' extracis
For many years the only hop-yard in thi
county was one of three or four acres, in
the Village of Lyons. In 1861.62 the peo
ple hereabouts began to awaken to a 'knowl
edge of tho enormous profits to be derived
from that branch of agriculture, and, with
a rapidity almost beyond comprehension,
the farms and gardens of a hundred town
ships have, since that time, been converted
into hop yards.
In Sauk, l Tuneau, and Coluthbia counties,
the number lof acres to be harvested this sea
son eiceeds that of any previous year by
more than one hundred per cent.,
"All the world and his wite"—aye, and
his wife's "relations," and his children,
and grand children, too, are hop pickers
here, It is a Matter of economy, of abso
lute necessity. A coinpetent nurse, em
ployed at from $2 to s3'per diem, will take
charge of a half dozen babies-in-arms and
save a corresponding number of hands to
to the hop growers. That the crop be
promptly_ gathered'concerns not merely the
producer-and the dealer, but every citizen
to an-equal extent.. The gold of the banker;
- thegoods, and exchange- of the merchant;
the lands and homestead of the speculator;
the pauper's crust, and the poor laborer's
daily bread, hang on: the vine-circled poles;
and all these are equally periled by delay.
• Yet not alone is it this necessity which,
attracts the women so universally to the
hqp yards. A very Large` shareof these go
for the.wages. A considerable number are
enticed by, the certainty of enjoying a season
of roistering fun, :with plenty of company.
But, to complete the list, the wives and
daughters of the wealthy go hop picking, as
they allege, solely for "the benefit of their
health." The expression has become a cur
rent joke among the pickers • generally.
With a praisewerthy spirit-of martyrdom do
these hopeful seekers for health pursue their
object. Cold, foggy mornings, and dismal
rainy days,. damp not their courage,' nor
shake their resolution. Toothache, neural
gia, rheumatism cast not a shadow o'er their
confidence. Nothing short of a sudden re;
- duction of the' wages paid, strange as it may
appear, can effect that object. '
Yet all the resident Pickers, old and young,
form but an insignificant fraction of the
force requiredto gather the harvest The
entire population of this county town,
numbering some three or four thousand, are
employed ivithin a 'wilds of one and a half
-or two miles from their homes. Several
hundred are - engaged in the limits of the
Last year, as was 'estimated from the most
reliable sources, 40,000 people—the greater
number women—came into Sauk county
alone, during the hop picking season. At
this time,--the presenl season being nearly
twice as large as the lasi : it is generally con
ceded-that there can be but few less than
75,000 strangers in this One county, and
from 140,000 to 150,000 in all the hop
The vast army of harvesters come togeth
sr from every point, near or remote in the
State, and from
,hundreds of places in
Northern Illinois.. .A very large majority'
ofthose who come only from adjacent man
ties, within a range of, say, fifty miles in
either direction, have been engaged by con
tract, by some of the most extensive grow
ers, since mid-sunimer,or earlier, and many
since the picking of last year. There were
agents Who made - a point to travel through
remote, counties, east and south, - and se
,cure hands in this way, but they soon found
that the advantage of this cohrse - promised
to be mainly found on the side of the pick
ers, in view of 'a decline in wages at harvest,
time and they accofdingly closed the con
-tract-business. Thirty bents per box was at
- that time offered, then forty cents; and many
thousands would have been secured at that
price, hut :that 'they indignantly refused
these terms, expecting filly or sixty cents,
.and willow to work for' no less than the
former at anytime. Those who were fool
ish enough to= engage. for less, have &re
saxded their contracts since, and get full
pay. The hop growers are completely at
Fully one-half of the harvest' is ripened
and ready for the box at one and the same
time. It must be gathered as promptly as
the greatest number of hands who can work
in the yard and 'be accornincdated in the
house can do_the work. Delay is perilous;
lice„ rust and mildeW they begin their ray
-ages at any .moment and destroy thousands
of capital, while hundreds only can be se

The Singular.Phenemenen of theEruptlon.
Daring the whole of July Mount Vesuvi
us has been in a state of greater or leas erup
- tion, and has exhibited a- most magnificent
'spectacle. - For four months within a few ,
' . days, it has continuously _pouring,
forth lava'in spite the , predictions of the
learned that the-end was -drawing near; so
: that our 'professors are'under 'the' . .necessity
of distinguishing three phases of the erns
. tion—the first extending_from the night of
'thel2th or 'l3th of November to the 15th of
- January; the second frOm the 15th of. Janu•
cry to the 11th of February,:during which,
interval,it exhibited, great varieties with less
activity; the third from the 11th of Februa
ry to the present thne, a period of diminution
. according to. Palmiera, though appearances
and daily reports are such as to refute the
hypothesis: About the beginning of this
latter period little lava flowed, and the im
'fression was that the eruption was about;
over; but on the 12th greater activity,which
continued" 7to - ; the 15th of February,
was observed; M.'S detonations were loud,
generally in , the morning and evening;
some , stones werei:thrown out, and then
comparative silence ensued. During these
two or three days sev eral shocks 'of earth,
-quake were registered , and: the apparatus of
variation was disturbed. A few , sublimates
wers,collected on the summit, but not suffi ~
cleat to Mark the end of the eruption/1 On
;the 17th , yet greater activity was percepti
and its pe riodicity . was confirmed;
twice a day Vesuvius put forth' all its ener
...,4141, Interesting equally the scientific and
- the curious. , The guides of Vesuvitie'w,ho
itiaide in Resins say.that In their town great
shocks were. felt,. sufficient ,to make their
doors and windows ;.t*mble, Coluirms
stones, they add, were shot into the, air, at
the height of three hundred metro, some-,
• 'thing littlii.'ShartOrnine hitndred fellt, :The,
lava, too progressed conelderablyv:foraiiPi
.at the foot of the crone; five different stream's,
Which-,,potiFed over like cascades., •On.the
— lBth the great cone began again to roar with.
considerable ',violence, audr two shocks• of
earthquake were, felt, -distinctly in Resins,
" the very summit - cif thEcone fell in; forming
• by the obstruction of the , matefial three,
..oreaters, which threw oat large quantities
of stone, and offered, as It were a mogul&
cent display of fire-works. The entire cone
- trembled, too, as if shaken• by an earth
quake, for four or five seaside, while later
in the day, the lava forced an opening in
the direction of the Piano delle Ginistere,
and flowed onward in a' stream of full ten
metres in width. From this time to the end
r:e ^ r
of the monthAlle mountain inis continued
to thunder, and to throw out masses"of red
hot laya,which, dividing into many streams,
presents:at a geat distance a:spectacle of
great beauty.' Frequent, though slight,
shocks have been felt at' Resins, and, in
deed, other places in - the immediate neigh
borhoOd, but they create no alarm, as the
people are so accustomed to their return.
Oaths night, however, -of the 27th, there
was one unusually 'strong: It seems now
to be confirmed that the volcano acts under
lunaiinfluence. In truth, the periods of its
greatest eruption get every day about half
an hour later, coinciding with the evolu
tions of the planet. I have only to note the
nature of the materials which have been
thrown out during the - third phase. The
ashes and sublimates have been-in small
quantities, which, according to , Palmiera's
own assertion on several occasions, indicate
that the eruption is not near its termination.
The sublimates which have appeared, how
ever, on the smoke holes, have been chlor
ide of copper and lead, while the absence of
chloride of iron has been noted as remark
able; although on the top of the cone it has
been united with "oligisto" iron. The con
course of visitors is greater than ever.
So'Mere' Pay and Bounty.
As an evidence of the immense
&d , disburse
ents of the Government during the past
fiscal year, occasioned by the war, and par
tially accounting for the increase in the pub
lic debt, as per last statement, a few figures
have been obtained from the records of the
Treasury Department. It is ascertained
that the pay and bountFdivision of the Sec
ond Auditor's office, during the past fiscal
year, adjudicated 102,000 claims of deceased
and discharged soldiers, involving an
amount of $19,500,000. The number of
claims of the same class rejected—durig
the same time was 41,000, making a total of
293,000 claims disposed of, carrying money
ranging in sums from $25 to $5OO into 162,-
000 families—mostly the poor. More than
500,000 letters were written, in addition to
the numerous printed circulars and blanks
mailed fromthe office. No frauds were com
mitted,, and the mistakes will not amount to
one-tenth of one per cent. of the amount
collected. Of the 900,000 claims filed in the
Departinent since the war began, 80,000 re
main yet to be disposed of. These are most
ly complicated cases, difficult of settlement,
and many o 1 which hare been suspended for
additional evidence. yn the Ist of Septem—
ber there were twenty-six thousand addi
tional bounty claims on file.
AY attempt was recently made at Chalons
to poison Marshal Bazaine and a number of
other prominent French Generals. An in
vestigation led to such startling results that
the whole force hitherto employed at the
staff kitchen was replaced by other men, and
several of the military, cooks are still in cus
tody. Bazaine -- t — extremelyunpopular
among his brother officers. When blunt
old general Husson 3 ecently entered the
staff-tent where Marstial Bazairie and half a
dozen Generals were assembled, the veteran
exclaimed, "How do you', Generals ?"
shook hands with all the Generals, and took
no notice of Bazaine. The' soldiers
shout, whenever Bazaine makes his appear
ance, "How do you, Generals ?"
To ILLUSTRATE the wonderful rise in the
value of property,iand the great changes
made in New York in a short time, Signor
Blitz relates that fifteen years ago he hired
a house and seven acres of ground where
Fifty-third street now is, at $2OO per an
num. The entire property was offered in
fee to him for $5;000, an offer which he re
jected. Had, he accepted it, his $5,000
would have grown, by this time, into half a
million or more of dollars. -

from the use of tobacco by the mere exercise of the
will. Something is needed to assist nature in over
coming a habit su tirmly rooted: with the help of the
preparation there is not the least trouble... Hu
ndreds have used Lt who are willing to bear witness
to the fact that ORTON'S PREPARATION com
pletely destroys the appetite for tobacco and leaves
the person as tree from any desire for it as before
he commenced its nee. It is perfectly safe and
harmie l ss in all cases. The Preparation acts directly
upon the same glands and secretions affected by to
bocco, and through these upon the blood, thorough
ly cleansing the poison of tobacco from the system,
and thallaying the unnatural cravings of tobacco.

, BANGOR, Me., April 24. 1868.
I hereby C t rtifv that I have used tobacco for thir
ty sears past, and .for the last fifteen : years I have
used two pounds per month. I have made attempts
to leave off at dinerent times. I have left ott one
year at a time, but always continued to banker fur
It until I used Orton's Preparation, which has coal
pledely cured me of the appetite for tobacco. I
woad recommend all who are affected witu this ter
rible habit to try the preparation, which will cer
tainly cure it if the directions are followed.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn.,August 5. 1867.
This is to certify that I had sed tobacco to such
an extent that , tny health had become greatly im
paired, and my whole system deranged and broken
down. In June. 1867, I purchased one box of Or
ton's Preparation, and after using it 1 found that I
was completely cured. I have not had any hanker
ing or desire for tobacco since using the preparation.
I believe it to be all that it is recommended, and I
would advise all who wish to quit the use of tobacco
to try one box of Orton's Preparation.
