If this be the case and we have no reason to doubt it, because the Associated Press is generally correct the city of magnificent distances must have a population, permanent and temporary, about twice as great as its directory shows at any time in its history, for the attendance of those ing patriots who are ever ready to assume a portion of the burdens of state is always numerous, and on special occasious,like the present, when there are more offices than usual to be distributed, their appearance is strongly suggestive of that of a swarm of bees whose hive has been robbed. Senator Gordon has been compelled to and station polock himself licemen at the entrances to keep the patriots in the street, in consequence of which his premises must be an object of interest to the tourists who happen in that vicinity. The other Democratic members of Congress are of course similarly situated, and the question of the hour with the na tional statesmen is not whom shall we have, but what shall we do to be saved from the surging masses of humanity who will not bo put off or abashed. is a disease peculiarIt begins early in lifo ly American. and grows with the growth of the Its symptoms are varied, patient.

At the same time, a gentle hint from those to whom they look for their positions that they are iioMhe salt of the earth, that they are not the bulk of the population, that they do not embrace within their minds all the knowledge of their respective communities or any considerable portion of it would be salutary and doubtless at times avert the necessity of harsher office-seeker- self-f-acri- Oflice-seekin- weak-minde- d office-holde- Tub United States has been piling up the figures on population pretty fast and pretty high during the present decade, if estimates are worth anything. It is estimated in Washington, soa dispatch to the Cincin-nai- i Commercial s;iys, that the census of next year will show an increased population of 8,.j()0,000, necessitating, under the present apportionment, an increase of sixty six in the House of Representatives, making that body the unwieldy number of 459. The electoral vote will be increased to 4.15. New York would gain five Congressmen, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Wisconsin four each. Tlc. estimates show no increase in the population of Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Tew Louisiana, Maine, Nevada, Hampshire, Vermont and South Car olina. It may bo of interest to our farmers to know how to break oxen readily and effectually. An eastern editor gives the following recipe, which we consider infallible: "If only onoox ft good way would be to hoist him, by means of a chain attached to his tail, to the top of a polo forty feet from the ground. Then hoist him by a rope' tied to his horns to another pole. Then descend on his back a five ton and if that don't break him let him start a newspaper and trust people for subscriptions. One of the two ways will do it sure." pile-drive- ' ' ' ' ' ' Ma job Rkxo was acquitted; Judge Blodgett was whitewashed; Randall was vindicated; Seward got off; Fitz John Porter will doubtless come out all right; and really looks as though the present was a most propitious tinjc for Bro.
