I *Y; Will He Explain? Ex-Senator Jones, of Florida, whose Strange conduct in quitting the Senate before his time expired, and who has since resided in Detroit, Mich , has written the the following letter to the New York World: “To theEditorof the World: It may appear strange to the readers of the World that after so much has been said about me and mine. I have re {named silent for four years. I am aware that I am in the public eye,<and I desire especially to remind ihe con spirators who did all they could to des troy me.that I am still in Detroit.In the language ot that great Irishman, John Philpot Curran, they may assassinate but they -‘cannot intimidate me.” At the proper time I shall speak to my beloved constituency and tell them why I left their service before the ex piration of my second term of office in the Senate. The sufferings and persecutions that I have borne here iione but God and a few devoted friends have any knowledge of “CHARI.F.S W. Jones, “Late Senator from Florida. •‘Detroit, June 2.” No solution of the Senator’s strange Weak has ever been offered. It is generally supposed that his mind is affected, though this may possibly not be the case. It is, however, the most reasonable conclusion. The Heavens in June. The month of June, always an im portant one in connection with the movements of the sun, is doubly so this month, as on the 21st it reaches its greatest northern declination for the year, at which time the almanacs say summer begins, and then the sun starts on its journey south. The other important feature is the annular eclipse of the sun, which takes place on the 27th. This eclipse is not visible in the norihcrn hemisphere as high as our latitude. The path in which the circumstances of the eclipse are best to be observed passes in a curved line from Woolwich bay,south western Africa, north and east, clear of the island of Madagascar, thence into the eastern section of the Indian ocean, lasting about five hours and three-quarters. The next eclipse is a partial eclipse of the moon in July, also invisible here, to be followed in December by a total eclipse of the sun, to observe which, from the west coast of Africa, parties are already being organized in Wash ington and other astronomical head quarters. Among the planets important chang es are also apparent. Some that have been conspicuous thus far during the year as morning stars take their places in the evening skies, while others be gin their turn in pointing out the tl path the un is to follow. The n conspicuous of all is Jupiter. At close of April Venus stepped in to pute the field over which Jupiter reign ed the acknowledged sovereign, and by her greater brilliancy caused her rival to lessen somewhat in importance. On the 24th of the month, Jupiter, be ing in opposition with the sun, will give up the struggle and take his place for the remainder of the year among the evening stars. Mercury changes on the 18th from evening star to range himself under Venus’ banner as a morning planet, remaining, however, in this catagory only until August, when he once again is an evening star. Mercury is in con junction with the moon on the 27, the two not being far from the constella tion Taurus. On the 17 Mars makes his first ap pearance in the evening skies, remain ing there until the end of the year. On the 28th the planet and the moon are in conjunction. As Mercury is in conjuction at the same date, those who are in a favorable situation for observ ing them will see a rare picture. Re cent observations of this planet with powerful instruments have given rise to most interesting speculations re garding canals that are said to exist on its surface. The theories advanced, bold and original though they be, are in many respects plausible, and it may not be unreasonable to assert that our Mar tial neighbors may have means for ac complishing the magnificent works which put our best efforts to shame, and which would only be possible with us after centuries of progress, in spite of the immense strides science is mak ing- Neptune is another of the morning stars, and he will not again join the evening planets this year. Uranus is one of the few evening stars. He was in conjunction with the moon on the 18th.—Ex. .“John wake up! I hear a noise in the kitchen. There’s somebody in the house!” (Jumping cut of bed.) "Don’t be afraid, Mana, I’ll drive him out! Be calm darling,” “Don’t go down that steep stairway with your revolver cocked, John. It might go off before you arc ready.” (Crawling back into bed again) “Mrs. Bill as, if you haven’t any cOn- Jidence in my management of burglars you can take the revolver and go down yourself.” The State of Cotton. Washington. June to.—The June report of the Department of Agricul ture, published to-day, indicates a slight reduction in the area ol cotton on the Atlantic coast and an increase west ot the state of Alabama Nearly four-filths of the proposed breadth had been planted bv the first of May. but germination was slow on account of the cold and generally dry weather. Replanting of the defective stands is general and some fields were plowed up and planted in corn. The following averages are prelimi nary. and are subject to revision from the thorough special investigation now- in progress: North Carolina 80 Florida 100 Mississippi 1°*- _ Texas 10:i.;> Tennessee 180 (Jecrgiai 8S Alabama 8.» Louisiana Arkansas 101 General average 1°1 The nights have been too cold and the seed bed too dry for germination or vigorous growth. Frosts are re ported in May, some as late as the 30. Throughout the cotton belt the condi tion is relatively low—the lowest in South Carolina and highest in Texas, averaging 86.4 The state averages being: Virginia 85 South Carolina "8 North Carolina 8-1 Georgia 80 Florida 88 Alabama 83 Mississippi 85 Louisiana 80 Texas •*.» Arkansas 82 Tennessee *8 General Average 80.4 Replanting was scarcely completed at the date of the reports and on dry land the latter seeding had not germi nated. Rains on the last days of May were expected to improve the condi tion materially. In some districts are reports of the presence of lice and in juries by cut worms.

The confession of faith adopted by the Westminister assembly has been maintained without change for nearly 250 years. But even Presbyterian ism, intensely conservative as it is, has at lasr taken the first step toward revising its standards of faith. The response of the Presbyteries to the questions of the general assembly especially as regard? the doctrine of predestination, cannot fail to excite a profound interest outside as well as within the Presbyterian denomina tion.—Philadelphia Times. m IIy shipping year Green and* Dried FRUITS, MELONS, VEGETABLES, (ktainy thing you may have, to us.
