Mr Brvdges, Manager  of the Graud Trunk Railway, says : "/There  have been this year about 200 to 300 families  who have gone West by the Grand Trunk,  with no apparent intention of returning, and  in-addition there has I>een an excess oyer the  usual emigration to work in factories and  brickyards, of probably not less than 3,000  persons ; but it is the intention of nearly the  whole who have thus gone to return in- the  fall, bringing back with them the fruits of  their labors."

Such land is scarcely  fit for anything else, owing to the- abundant  proportions, of alkali if contains, and 'can be  pre-empted  or   purchased at a low figure.  Would it pay a company or a capitalist to  engage in manufacturing sugar fro ui beets,  for the supply of that part  of   the   colony  alluded to?" The cost of the machinery and  the amount of sugar consumed would answer  the question, out we have no reliable data on  which  to  form .an estimate.

English Registrar-  General publishes a remai'k&ble Illustration  of the .", infallibility" which seems to belong  to some statistical calculations. It is calca-  lated, from the experience of many years,  that the number of persons who ought to be  killed by- horses in London in the first 19  weeks of the year is 74, . Iu the first 18 weeks  of 1869 only 66 were killed, and it seemed as  if science were for once at fault. In the 19th,  however, 8 were killed, and tho number made  up as completely as if it were part of the law  of nature that some four persons a week  should be killed by horses.  Whit-tlers���������Therei are only two marrlaWe*  aMe girls at Cobs, Oregon:? On Sundays half  a dozen or more young fellows sit all day on  the^verandahs in front of- the ladles' houses,  wWle each fair one: looks at her fpUowprs  through the half-opened window. The lovers  all the while are whittling bits of'white pine.

NEW ADVERTISEMENTS.  A Great Idea.���������Some far-seeing individual, in view of what was done in Lake Haarlem, Holland, has suggested that Lake Erie  be drained for occupancy by man when all  our other lands shall have been taken up.  This enthusiastic individual says the time  will come whoa the land under Lake .Ecus  will be of more value than the water within  it and when that time comes, man will say to  the waters, ���������'March," and they will go, leaving the land for man's occupancy. Its  greatest depth is but two hundred and  seventy feet, and its drainage would be an  easy matter.  -  Yellow Fever ix Soutu America���������The  yellow fever is very severe in the southern  part of Peru.

It is also proving very  fatal at the Chincha Islands, and among the  persons who have died from the fever there  are several American and English ship cap-  tains. In tbe northern part of Peru the fever  has as yet prevailed very little, and Lima  and Callao have been almost entirely exempt  from its fatal ravages.

The heat now surpasses anything I  have ever felt in the warmest time in Sacramento.   It is dangerous to remain any time  exposed to the sun.  Several old San Francisco men are here.  Dr. Cole owns a block or two, and is building.  Col. Henley is also interested in real estate.  All the property owners speak as if this place  would be' a  flourishing city soon.    Peter  Owens is here, after being at White Pine.  Several have returned sick from White Pine ;  many, I believe will never'again see San  Francisco.   In the hope of making a fortune  at White Pine they ^contracted disease that  will soon carry them off.' Pneumonia is the  prevailing disease.   There have been several  cases of small-pox and some deaths.  The people up here have been much disappointed at the few passengers arriving from  the East... We had a Chicago merchant to  .visit us. He brought along with him twenty  barrels of whiskey. After much solicitation,  fcftso\dit,at $1 pec gallon, laid down. Bis  losses were some hundreds, of dollars.'

Important   to   Traders  ? r  Chief Justice Chase has ruled thafc the  United States Governmeht cannot collect  Income-taxA.from --forelgaers who hold its  bonds, and-thai the suins already collected]  must be refunded.A}'A*''AA'.:  * Great activity seems to prevail in the telegraphic world, besides ttie French Atlantic  Cable  and  the British Indian Submarine,  whicb Is being rapidly proceeded; with, we  read o fa scheme for .connecting the North of  Scotland with. Canada,.-by means of a line  from "Wick, turoiigh the Orkrieys; Faroe, and  Iceland.   Numerous other telegraphic enterprises are reported in the English; papers,  Professor Pelizzari, of Florence, has hit  upon a. cure for somnambulism. It simply  consists in winding once or twice round one's  leg, on going to bed, a thin flexible copper  wire, long enough to reach the floor." Eight-  een somnambulists treated ia this way have  been either permanently or temporarily cured.  The Oazzetta Medica, of Venice, whick reports the; fact, says that copper wire is known  to dissipate magnetic somnambulism, and that  this circumstance led the professor to have  recourse to this strange remedy.  A Society bas been formed in the States  which calls itself the Anti-taxation Society.  Its ideas may best foe explained by an extract from the speech of the President of tbe  Society  at a recent meeting ia New York.  <*If, for instance, funds sufficient were not  aised to pity the Governor's salary, we should  bave no Governor ; if funds were not raised  fco pay our Judges'salaries, we should have  no Courts of Justice,   People would pay for  what they wanted fo have, and not, as now,  for a great deal they did not want.   At the  game time the stealings would be stopped,  and an army of officials would be dispensed  with."  LL "FREIGHT COIsSlC.SEO TO J. C. BBEDY,  s-JL Ya>c, B.
