BUILDING LOTS. Will he sold a: public sale, on the premises, On Saturday, May 15th, 1880, AT TWO O'CLOCK P. M., As in former years the present hot wave comes from the west. It originated in Breckmndge, Minnesota, some time iu the early part of last week, and has been traveling eastward ever since. The signal Service men are of the opinion that it will be followed by considerably colder weather. There was snow in Cheyenne yesterday. Tbis is a great country. Scow in one part, and aiiDos: tropical heat in another, and net extreme points either. WHENEVER the party in power ic England becviines unpopular with the people, and 3oes not have strength enough to pass an important bill which the dominant party thinks necessary, it has to go before the people again for re-election. This has a tendency to make the ius very careful in their mode of government, or they and the outs may change places, as Beaconsfield and Gladstone have recently done. The politicians tbere aje just as fond ol office as we in America. BUILDING LOTS! Krontirg on Concord avcnu 0 . Seventh, Fulton and Washington streets, South ward. Terms at sale. W M.P.EYRE.

This is particularly so in the case of iron. Had the makers beeu content with a reasonable prolit, they cuuld, with the assistance of the heavy duty, nave kept the English iron from the American markets, but in their eageraess to amass wealth quickly, they combined and put the paces to such a height that English makers could realize a handsome profit even after paj ing the tariff. What is true of iron, is also the case in other American productions. NEW BRUNSWICK, XOVA SCOTIA, Prince Edward Island, Ac.- Ac.

A number of carp, of the varieties known as tbe '-leather carp" and the "minor carp" were imported, and in 1878 one hundred and twenty of these were removed to the Government carp ponds, at the National Capitol, constructed especially for the purpose on tbe Washington Monument reservation. The pond covers about twelve acres* and ihe carp have multiplied to such an extent that it is possible BOW to begin the work of distributing them. The introduction and domestication of the new food fish will be of much interest and importance to all luUod communities, as there is not a ditcb, Di'.'i-dam, or any boggy, muddy spot which cannot b« converted into a pond in Wnicb they will thrive. The carp soon become tame, and can be readily handled, and it is tbought that, in a few years, they can be made as common an article of diet as docks or pigeons. Professor Baird says that each of the female carp taken out of the pond will furnish frctfc one-quarter of a million to one million eggs, and by the aitificial system of propagat.oij, which insures the fertilization of all the ecgs, ninety per cent, of them wil 1 be hatched There is no reason why all our farme'S. who have ponds or streams on their places, sLoald not, eneage in the cultivation of fash, wrr.cb will yield *n average profit as great as from any of their other productions- »T»HE OLDEST AND MOST RELIABLE Line on the Delaware.
