It may not be generally known that the
United States is the greatest raisin-con
suming country in the world, and uses
I annually more raisins than the whole of
Europe. The market is mainly supplied
from Spain, the raisins known as "Mala
gas" being considered the best. They
come from a comparatively narrow strip
of country in the south of Spain, which
has hitherto been regarded as surpassing
all other regions for raisins of that char
acter. The annual yield of Malaga grapes
averages2,4so.ooo boxes of twenty pounds
each. It sometimes reaches 2,<50,000
boxes, and last season about 2,000,000
boxes were marketed. Of this enormous
yield the United States takes fully one
half, on which it pays a duty—as on all
other raisins—of two and a half cents a
With the continued improvement in
the California and other American vine
yards that will uecessairily follow on cul
tivation and acclimatization this large
import will soon be supplied by domes
Marriage brokers are quite important
busieuss men in Genoa. They have pocket
books filled with the names of the marria
gable girls of the different clases, with
notes of their figures, personal attract
ions, fortunes, etc. These brokers go
about endeavoring to arrange connect
ions; and when they sueced they get a
commision of two or three per cent, upon
the portion. Marriage at Genoa is quite
a matter of calcualtion, generally setteled
by the parents or relations, who often
draw up the contract before the parties
htvc seen one another, and it is only
when everything is arranged, and a few
days previous to the marriago ceremony,
that the future husband is introduced to
his intended partner for life. Should he 1
find fault with her manners or appear
ance, he may break oil' the match on con
dition of defraying the brokerage and any
other expenses incurred.
One of Senator Wallac's staple argu
ments against Republican administration
was the great growth of the civil list and
the excessive number of employees on it.
It was his custom to parade this fact in
every campaign from 1875 to 1879. lie
sides, Democratic papers pointed to the
great extravagance of the Senate and to
its long list of officials and the small
amount of duty performed. It is a fitting
comment on these attacks that the pres
ent Democratic majority in the Senate
have not only not reduced the number of
employees of that body, but on Thursday
actually added three to the number. And
Senator Wallace ottered the resolution.
The force before this increase was more
than twice as large as it 1800. Mr.
Saulsbury raised a protest against the in
crease, but Demorat!? zeal carried all
It seems that the Republican members
elect of the Maine Legislature, who arc
about to be counted out by Governor
Garcelon and his Council, are without
legal remedy. The petition for the writ
of mandamus against the Secretary of
State to compel him to permit the returns
to be examine has been dismised by Judge
Virgin. The dispatch from Augusta an
nouncing this result does not mention
whether the writ was refused because the
Court had no jurisdiction in the premises,
or because the Secretary of State proved
what he averred in his answer to the pe
tition, namely, that he was not the custo
dian of the returns, and that they were
not under his control.
The clerk ot the committee which went
to Lousiana to find out whether Spofford
or Kellogg was elected Senator, has deci
ded that neither was elected and that the
seat should be declared vacant. A com
mittee clerk like this is just as handy as
can be. Next time when an investigation
is needed in Louisiana it won't be neces
sary to send along anybody but the clerk. I
