The Wall street News exclusively gives the Michigan earnings this afternoon, the gross receipts of the road showing »n increase of 92fifl ,O00, and the IfroSK receipts of the Coal and Iron company an Increase of 839,000. This "is a good showing, of course, but April will be still better. The manipulated decline of llock Island just at the end of the day, yesterday, was thought to have been partly the result of bear operations to cover up shorts in Heading and other stock. An intimate friend of Oould's says that .lay will not return here from the southwest until the middle of May. A lioston telegram says that the "Q." dividend may be increased as the earnings for the year now look like "Itf per cent.

It seems reasonably certain that stock* will diminish quite rapidly in the near future. The heavy decreuso in Iiradstreet 's visible, which has been going on for some weeks, amounting to nearly live millions of bushels last week, indicates that country stocks are being absorbed even faster than the oflleial visible. The situation is improving for holders. The weather is unfavorable for spring wheat seeding, and the Impression is gaining ground that next go,eminent report will show little or no improvement in winter wheat. The liquidation in the May option has tended to weaken prices to-day. Colts AND OATS —The uncertainty with regard to the Slay deal in corn grows denser, if possible, and traders are inclined to let it alone and go into iluly. The latter option lias strengthened relatively and is being lHiugbt on its merits. Oats dull and ftitureless.

[Special * -i,ni':.poii (leiue.] WAKKI-'IKLII . N. V.. April 1I.— Adelina Palti is planning a vUir In a Minnie red brick house in the village of Washingtonville, just on the edge of Xew York city, in Westchester county. Her brother Nicola has already been up to look at the red brick house this spring. It is the house in which tho wonderful singing bird lived when she was a growing girl, and whence she went forth, more years ago than it would bo gallant to enumerate, to begin her career of dazzling success. The Pattis went to live atWashing- tonville about ten years after their arrival in New York. Patti's father built the red brick house and lived there along with his wife and three sets of children—those of his first wife, those oi his second wife's first husband, and those bom to him and tho second wife, lime, Patti, the neighbors say, was a woman that made people stand in awe of her. She is very well remembered as a dark eyed and rather stern person whom the few villagers regarded with mixed feelings. The Pattis were all people of the stage and little understood by their Vieighbors. They came and went as they chose—now living for weeks or months in the red brick house, now going oil for seasons of singing or acting. Carlotta was already launched upon her career, and Nicola was known to the theater going world. As to the great Adelina, she was a short, stout, dark eyed little girl, who romped with tho neighboring children mid enjoyed life ju;>t as if she were not destined to make the-greatest operatic reputation of the century. Her ordinary schooling wa« obtained in Fourteenth street. New York, but she was devoted to music, and it was her habit to have the children of the neighborhood come to the house and play singing school. Even then her voice was marvelous, and according to the biographers .she had already been heard in concert. The little Patti's very toys contained hints of her future career. The widow Elizabeth Brown, now a very old woman, but often employed by the Puttis in ner youth, has r.-no of Adellna's toys. It is an odd looking theater, stage and auditorium, made of cork. Onco it had seats filled with manikins and other manikins that appeared upon tho tiny stage, but these are gone. For years the widow's late husband used it as a receptacle for his pipes. Now it hangs in the widow's barn. The whole toy is perhaps eighteen inches square, and tho cornice over the stage must be rather more than a foot high. The Widow Brown treasures in her best room three little oak chairs once the property of the Pattis. She remembers the whole family very well and speaks familiarly of tho daughters as Carlotta and Adelina. The little Adelina often visited tho Browne, and the widow heard many times the undeveloped voice that was to entrance tho world. Half a dozen other residents of Washingtonville recall the Pattis, and especially Adelina. A daughter of Thomas T. White, who bought tho red brick house of Patti's father and still occupies it, will have it that Adelina Patti made her first public appearance while living at Washingtonville. Tho tradition is that the little girl, then only twelve years old, went forth from the house to Mount Vernon, a niilo away, and sang in concert at Beck's hotel. This, however, docs not agreo with iuost of Patti's biographers, who put her down as having made hor debnt at the age of eight years. But then many residents of Washingtonvillo believe that tho diva was born in their village instead of in Madrid. At any rate that is current tradition, though Patti's former playmates are less at odds with history in this matter. The Patti house was built in, 1851, a year after tho village was laid out, and for a long while it was tho most conspicuous building in Washingtonville. It is still highly distinctive, though not by reason of its beauty. It stands on a hillside, surrounded by a garden with trees and plants. The roof runs to a peak in the middle, and there are ugly porches front and rear at the hoigh. of the second story and approached by uncomfortably high and steep steps. The house is almost square and three stories high. It has no architectural pretensions, but it must have cost Patti two or three thousand dollars, and it has a sufficiently commodious air. Within, the rooms are of good size. About tho only relic of the PatttB remaining in the house is an enormous kitchen table that was deemed too heavy to he removed, and has since occupied its original position. The house has recently been sold by its present occupant. E. N. VALLANDIQHAM. Ills Great Deslro.

CiriuiL's Itlrth. To-day is the 7 (lth anniversary of the birth of Gen. L'. S. Grant, the hero of the late war. Appropriate exercises have been conducted in many cities of the Union, and the deeds of heroism and daring of that great general have been the theme of thousands of tongues. In this city there was no public demonstration of any kind, but the da3 T was iittingly commemorated by Mr. Wiener, of the Grand, who decorated the south window of his store with a large picture, of tho dead hero, while around hang the folds of the Kansas City.

The fact that Royal Baking Powder is, in all respects, the best baking powder offered to the public has been established beyond question. Prof. H. A. Mott, when employed by the U. S. Government to analyze the various baking powders of the market to determine which was the best and most economical, after an extended investigation reported in favor of the Royal, and it was adopted for government use. Prof. Mott has continued his examinations of baking powders sold at the present day, and affirms it as his deliberate judgment, arrived at after most thorough research and a careful examination of the principal brands of the market, that the Royai is undoubtedly the purest and most reliable baking powder offered to the public. Prof. Mott, in his report, says: " The Royal Baking Powder is absolutely pure, for I have so found it in many tests made both for that company and the U. S. Government. "I will go still further and state that, because of the facilities that company have for obtaining perfectly pure cream of tartar, and for other reasons dependent upon the proper proportions of the same, and the method of its preparation, the Royal Baking Powder is undoubtedly the purest and most reliable baking powder offered to the public.

Take Medicine unci Die. The curse of drugging is upon the people, but the truth is in the air, and its silent utterances, like angel whispers, fall upon the tympanums of the nation's ears, warning them of the follies of their present modes of life. Header, student, invalid, have you considered the laws of life and motion in your own bodies? If uot, then commence at once to snatch one hour of twenty-four and apply it to this most important consideration. Why are we sick? Why are our cities the stamping grounds of walking human pest houses? Why have we to support a death-dealing drug store in every city block? The only answer is a people's ignorance— an utter ignorance of the laws of life. Were these laws understood by the people we should not meet at every turn a pale faced, listless woman or a decrepit, half made up embodiment of manhood. The human race, under the curse of drugs, has become a menace and an insult to our Creator's masterpiece—man! Nervous prostration with all its horrible concomitants is so depleting the human family that nature stands aghast at its owuward march. The failure of schools of medicine is best seen in the utter helplessness of a constantly growing nation of invalids. One of America's most eminent physicians stated to his class thut "The present system of medicine was founded upon conjecture and improved by murder." Every honest physician will tell you to-dn3' that medicine is uot a science—it is but one grand experiment. This is not of chemistry, botany, astronomy, electricity and magnetism. This is xn'oved by the wonderful achievements of our Roscoes, our Frnnlclins. our Morses, our Hells and Edisons. .lust as these men have awakened the world to the truths of commercial science as seen in our stenm ongiues, our telegraphs, our telephones and electric lights, all of which were opposed by bigots of past tiroes, so in the domain of human health and life Professor Wilson has demonstrated that disease in every form may be successfully combatted without the use of drugs. Nervous prostration in man or woman is the precursor of all other forms of disease. Our divorce courts tell the world in the plainest possible language how the canker worm of human happiness is eating at the vitals of our race. Prof. Wilson's wonderful discovery of ever constant magnetic currents, as produced by our Magneto-Conservative Belts, Lcggins and Suspensories, is a revelation to the people. Hy their •use man and womanhood aBgert their prcrogative, and that heaven-born injunction of God to Adam and Evo In the Oarded of Hden must be maintained morally and physically. With a weakened nerve force begin all the miseries of life. With these forces maintained a perfect Eden may be regained. Therefore sec to your future happiness by securing perfect health. This must be the only result of wearing our Magneto-Conservative Belts and other appliances. N. B.—Wc are the only manufacturers of Prof, Wilson's genuine Magneto-Conservative Garments. All others are frauds, and must, if used, lead only to disappointment. Those garments cure all diseases which the flesh is heir to.
