Mr. Iragoyt, chief of the department of
general staUstica of France, In nn interest
ing report published in 13G8, upon the agrl-
,Uluru of France at different periods, says
that (he increase in the production of wheat
in 1863, compared with 1810, was thirty
three per cent, and tbedecrease in the pro
duction of rye twenty-five per cent. In
iLc Fame period the avcrageyicld of wheat
per acre Increased from 13.9 to 103 bushels,
and potatoes were more largely cultivated
by thirty-four per cent.
A refereneo to official customs statistics
will show that Great Britain and her colo
nies constitute our main reliance for a
market of our surplus wheat. Few may
Ira aware bow small the quantity taken by
other countries actually is. The amount
ol wheat exported in the fiscal year ending
June 111. 1868, waa 15,940,809 bushels; of tills
but three per cent. (161,193 bushels) failed
to reach British or colonial territory. The
paucity of these exportations illustrates
the futility of attempting to grow grain to
feed the millions of Europe and Asia, as
follows: France. 2GO,763 bushels; Portu
gal, 83.190; Belgium,31,736; China, 29^83
Venezuela,23361; Peru, 20,289; Holland,
7(000; Phillippine Islauils, 1,119; Cuba, 560
Hutch West Indies, 400; Mexico, 5 bushels
—Hotel, 161,103 bushels. The practical de
duction from these figures is, that there Is
but one country in the world to which wc
can look for a market for wheat, and to
that one only for a small portion of her
supply, and that portion at prices compe
ting with the markets of the entire globe.
Tlra prices of 18C9, as compared witli
those of 1863, represent a reduction in the
aggregate sent to Great Britain of eight
mill ions of dollars. If, as is asserted, the
prices of exports control domestic prices,
the reduction of the value of the home con-
sumnllon is equivalent to far more than
Che amonnt received from the entire ex
port* of 1869, and the farmers would have
received wore money if tills surplus had
been allowed to rot. While low prices arc
not regarded as an unmlxed evil, the pres
ent depression of the wheat market is
shown to be a natural result, in part at
least, of over-production, for which farm
ers have only themselves to blame. It is
belter to have abundance than scarcity, for
the present good of consumers and tho ul
timate advantage of producers themselves;
hut when all other farm industries aro neg
lected Ibr one favorite crop, tho resultant
depression and discontent should be attrib
uted to its proper cause, and not to taxa
tion or other political influences.

Taking tho Census.

districts and the appointments for taking
tho census are at last completed, and the
work will be commenced Wednesday, June

Paris speaks a little of picratc of potash,
Greek fire, nnd fulminating shells, but the
fair sex arc not much disturbed, for the
milliners’ shops aro not mined, and tlfc
warehouses, full of spring novelties, are
bomb-proof. The aristocratic Faubourg of
St. Germain has adopted a new mourning

Duchess of Berry—just as formerly, when
the Porte St. Martin thcatro was burned,

tho repose ol the Duchess' soul, step out for
home, “like an Anduiaslan girl from mass
returning,” protected by “Jeame*,” but
follow by the eyes and sighs of the mala

sede knots of waist ribbons, by
buckles, but bns failed, and 1 swear by
Mahomet, long robes have not become

Yesterday, certain amendments to the
Legislative Appropriation bill bcin..

were, on this occasion, represented by
Yates and Harlan,) got a black eye. By
a. vote of 42 to 10 an appropriation was
made for extending the Capitol-grounds.
Tho next amendment received was that
of Mr. Sumner, appropriating $100,000 for
an expedition in the interests ol scienco to
the North Pole.
Mr. Sanlsbury moved to amend the
amendment by adding u with n view of
discovering said pole, measuring it, nnd
bringing it to this country, if practicable.”
Mr. Drake. For a liberty pole.
Mr. Sawyer. Is this expedition to pro
ceed until it discovers where the parallels
of latitndemeet? [Laughter.]
Mr. Cole said the recent Alaska treaty
with Russia had given us a kind of title to
the North Pole. The expedition would be
of much advantage to science, and would
help to open Up a great commerco for the
country. There arc immense quantities of
whales, seals, fish, etc, in that region, and
great trade Will spring up.
Mr. Patterson suggested to Mr. Saulsbury
that the North Pole could be used as a fish
ing pole, and bring in all these fish.
Mr. Sanlsbury. Or it could be used to
knock down persimmons. [Langbter.]
Mr. Howard thought wc had got whale
enough when we got Alaska, and lie did
not intend to vote for any more whales.
Some further debate ensued, in the course
of which it was stated that animal life
abounded in the Arctic regions; that proba
bly nine thousand of our citizens were en
gaged in whaling, fishing, etc., in these
waters; that from ignorance of the locality
many vessels were lost; and that among
other important advantages to inure from
the expedition would be to obtain an accu
rate knowledge of the waters.
Mr. Saulsbury then withdrew his amend
ment, and the amendment of Mr. Sumner
was concurred in by—ayes 28, nocs 25.

General Starr crossed Trout River on the
morning of the 27th, and advanced with
tils command. He proceeded about 600
yards when he deployed on the right and
left of the road, his extreme right resting
on Trout River. He had not occupied this
position long when the British troops and
Canadian militia emerged from the woods
a little In front and on the other side of the
Fenians. Line of battle was at once form
ed by the British, and a sharp and steady
fire was opened on tbe Fenians.
There was at the time a small rail
fence in front of the latter, which
was immediately converted into a sort of
stockade. The Fenians, who had been told
by General Starr to keep up a steady tiro
for ten minutes, obeyed orders and stopped
the advance of tbe British. Before tbe ex
piration of ten minutes, tbe Canadian
troops, far out numbering the Fenians,
made a movement as if they intended to
flank and capture the invaders, when Gen
eral Starr formed a rear-guard and a retreat
was ordered. The British continued firi ng,
pressing the Fenians, who managed to
maintain comparatively good order until
they reached the United States line, when
a parting volley was given the British, and
tbe battle or Trout River was over.

saw Colonel Wlnteratqjtb, a friend of Mr.

Editors Constitution: There are associa

soldier is, with tho brave, generous and no-
ble,hallowed ground. Hence tho announce
ment that the graves of tho Federal sol
diers would be decorated by their comrades
and friends, was regarded by the Southron
as “meet, right anti proper.” Every South
ern soldier expected that the Federal sol
dier or union man ln tbe war should deco
rate the graves of their fellow comrades
and friends, and express by their presence
nnd in befitting words, respect and honor
to their memory. Silence, respectful si
lence, was the part of the Southern man,'
for with no animosity in his heart against
the dead, there was none to speak, and the
Southern gentleman is too brave, generous
and noble to throw a straw in the way, or
give a look that would interfere in the least
with the ceremonies of such an occasion.
The predominant color was-decidedly

their Southern confreres, and a sorry look

soldier was ashamed of his company—and
we do verily believe that if the dead could
have risen, they would havo kicked them
off the ground. To • get a crowd—nobody
did it, but tbe darker heard that ho would
have to pay a fine of forty dollars if he
worked on tho “30th ” or failed to be pres

agreed upon between the Superintendents

The Cartcrsville and Van Wert Road

tiiat the material transported over the State
Road in constructing the Cartcrsville and
Van Wert Road should bo at one-half

prices., The State Road promised to loan
sufficient ties to lay the track to the river,
as there were no ties to be had on the line

is only what was done for the Air-Line,
and is common all over tbe country, for an
old road to extend courtesies and render
assistance to new roads being built as feed

" Z,” tlio Washington correspondent of
the Baltimore Gazette, gives tho following
statement of tho facts concerning tho re
coct proposed duel botwoon L. Q. Wash
ington, Eiqn correspondent of tho Now
York World, and Colonol B. T. Hutchins,
at present of Georgia, and which affair
caused to much osoltemont In Washington
circles. Tlio writer says:
There have been so many misstatements
of tho late difficulty between Mr. L. Q
Washington and Colonel Benj. T. Hutch
ins, that I deem It proper briefly to state
tlio actual facts. The quarrel began by
Colonel Hutchins undertaking to speak to
Mr. Washington, with whom ho had
no acquaintance, and urging tbo dlsfrsn
chfsemcnt and military enslavement
of tho Southern pcoplo. Mr. Wash
tngton answered by saying that if he had
bis way “lie would bang him; that be did
not know lilm, and did not want to know
him." Hutchins seemed desirous to bandy
words .further, but as the affair occurred in
tbe Senate gallery, Mr. Washington declin
ed further conversation, feeling also that
be had said enough to Indicate his own po
sition. Colonel Hutchins, a few moments
after, laid a pencil note upon Mr. Washing
ton’s tabic, informing him that be should
hear from him, and the next day addressed
a note requesting an explanation of tbe re
marks which, without specifying, he de
scribed generally us "personal.” Mr. Wash
ington answered him, stating that he did
not recognize the right of any one, especi
ally a stranger, to address remarks to him
which necessarily reflected upon himself
and the Southern people, and that when
Tlio Washington Chronicle and
For the edification of the organ, wo re
produce a neat, wcll-oxecuted summary of
the part played in the Georgia matter by
the Washington Chronicle. As it comes
from high Radical authority, the Chicago
Tribune, tho most influential Republican
journal in tho great Northwest, wo hope
it won’t hurt the organ’s feclings,and doubt
not that its political orthodoxy will bo
admitted. No heretical Democratic Ku-
Klux fathers this tidy and taking synopsis
of tho matter. It is no political bastard,
but is legitimate in the highest degree:
This is tbe exhibit made by the testi
mony. The inference is that (Ac Chronicle
was to manufacture public opinion for Gov
ernor Bullock, and to be paid for it. The at
tempt to patch upan account forwork done,
to cover the amount of money drawn from
tho Georgians, wan a weak device, and it
failed at the first question. Forney’s refusal
to show his books; his previous prepara
tion of a statement purporting to boa faith
ful copy; tho enforced production of the
books, and the disclosure of their altera
tion, exhibit a state of fads utterly dis
graceful to journalism. ln the light of these
disclosures, the thrilling editorials pointing
out the masterly statesmanship, logical
force, and tho pure Republicanism of the
speeches which were published at 25 cents
a line, were very flat in the first place, and
must now seem still more so to the Sena
tors whose speeches were thus presented.
The unusual patriotism of the Chronicle t'n
the matter of the Georgia bill; the fervid seal
it exhibited in protecting the rights and in
terest* of the loyal people of that State; the
burning eloquence with which it annihilated
the Edmundses, the Carpenters, the Thtm-
bulls, and the Fenrys,it now appears cost
25a50 cents per line, or in atl $3,508 50.
But that is not the worst of it. The al
teration of the books, and the preparation
of false statements, show that Air. Forney
teas ashamed of what he had done, and
sought to conceal the facts. He must have
known, when lie was summoned before the
committee, that lie would be required to
tell what be got the money for. Being re
quired to tell that he had charged Governor

Tbo “ Sleeping Heauty ” of Ten
nessee—A iteinarkablo Case.
A correspondent of tho Louisvillo Com
mercial, writing from Union City, Tennes
see, gives tho following Interesting partic
ulars of tho celebrated “Sleeping Beauty,”
of Tennessee, whom ho recently visited:
So much has already been written in re
gard to the lady known horo as tlio “ bleep
ing Beauty,” that I can scarcely hope to
gtvo you anything new, but will add my
testimony to that already given, and make
you a plain statement of foots sal know
them from her mother, brother and friends
who now have her In ebargo In tho same
house In which 1 am stopping, and from
which 1 am now writing to you, Miss
Susan Caroilno Uodsay was born In Obion
county, Tennessee, aud within ten miles of
this city, of poor but rcipcctablo parents.
Her father ha* boon dead for over twolvo
years. Her mother still lives and watches
over her lovod child, and tho eunken ayea
and furrowed brow stiow very plainly the
trials and sorrows sho ba* exporluneed
In her duty for twenty-one yean, bho is
very poor, and, to somo extent, dependent
upon tho contributions of visitors Pi take
caro of mid procure proper supplies for tier
Mlsi Uodsay was taken slok when about
four year* of age, witli what was supposed
to be chills and fovor, but which balliod
thoskll! of nurses and physicians fur more
than two years, at which time she fell into
t nervous sloop, from which sho lias not
awoko sinoe for a longer tlmo than twelve
minutes. She usually slcopi soundly from
eleven o'cloek at night until about six
In tbo morning, and through the day
awakes about onco an hour. Her waking
spoils aro never of loss then four nor raoro
than twelve, but usually about tlx minutes
duration. In hor waking moments she
speaks both pleasantly and Intelligently,
answer* promptly any qnostlons asked
her, and appears quite happy aud content-
One of tlio strangest points of this
strange case is the seemingly total abscnco
or anything like respiration. A piece of
the finest polished glass held to her lips
falls to discloso tlio slightest traoe or
breath. Her pulso is perfectly still, and
but for a nervous or tremulous motion
of the body, which never ceases, you
might at any time call her deatl. Sho has
grown during her alllictiou from a little
child to about the average height of her
sex, and weighs ninety-six pounds, and
although her body and hands show her
very poor in flesh, her lace is full and
smooth, and her features well developed-
Indued, such a rare style do liur features
portray- tiiat shu is not inappropriately
called tho Sleeping Beauty of Tennessee.
