Johnxtotie made in duly 18.0 '2 from which it
will appear that the estimated cost of grading

at that timo to construct the road upon the

lic of Mexico and the United States of Amer-
ica desiring to remove every cause of disa-
gi cement which might interfero in any man-
ner with the better friendship and intercourse
between the two countries and especially in
respect to the true limits which should be es-
tablished when notwithstanding what was
convenaiited in the treaty of Guadalupe Hi-
dalgo in 1848 opposite interpretations have
been urged which might give occasion to
fpievioiiM of serious moment: To avoid
these and to strengthen and more firmly
maintain the peace which happily prevails be-
tween the two Republics the President of the
United Slates has for this purpose appointed
James Gadsden Knvoy Extraordinary and

was like a boot-mater. Tho latter some-
what puzzled gave ih up. Why says the
other ''because the oneeold the nailo and the
other nails the souls."
JC2"Many persons:are now anxiously ex-
amining the mans to Wnd tho "scat of war."
Tubbs says he louriu tc last summer without
a map. The discovery was made by sitting
down upon a yellow wasp's nest in a hay-field.
A TnuE Remaiuc. A witness in a recent
gambling case said in reply to-a question by
tho court "I do not consider liquor as an ar-
ticle of value." There was a laugh upon
which he added "and for this reason I never
knew any person to become rich by consum-
ing it." There Was mudi for reflection in the
Uy Punch makes' female Physicians the
subject of tho following parody 1
'Oh woman 1 iriour hours of caso
Uncertain coy ar hard to please;
When pain ana' aguish wring the brow
A ministering I) thou."
U3TSwedenborg says 'that "though the
virgins he saw in heaven were beautiful the
wives were incomparable more beautiful and
went on increasing in beauty evermore."
That is certainly an encouragement for the
girls to get married. What girl would will-
ingly remain single in this world at the ex-
pense of her beauty in the next.
