A DESPATCH from Troy, New York, says the heavy rainfall of August greatly injured the potato crop. Farmers Say many hills do not contain a potato, and everywhere is heard complaint of rot. A similar report is sent from Quebec, Canada. IT is expected that the great parade of the trades unions in New York, on the 7th instant, will be the most imposing demonstration of the kind ever seen in that city. THE deaths in this city last week numbered 363, which was 54 less than during the previous week and three less than during the corresponding period last year. A VIOLENT hail storm, covering a track two miles in width, passed over Belmont county, Ohio, on First-day evening. Many of the hail stones measured from six to ten inches in circumference. Window glass was Smashed, a flour mill was blown down, and acres of corn and tobacco were ruined.

INSPECTOR ARMSTRONG, just returned to El Paso, Texas, from an inspection of the Indian agencies in Arizona, reports that the residents of that Territory have no further fear of Indian depredations. The Apaches at San Carlos Agency have raised a large crop of grain this year, and are peaceful and contented.

IT is now announced, but not officially, that the Af. ghan difficulty between Russia and England is entirely adjusted. The Czar of Russia it is said, will visit Merv, in 1886, in the autumn, and will thence go to Samarcand to be crowned Emperor of Central Asia.

THE cholera decreases in Spain somewhat. There were reported on Second-Day 3833 new cases, and 1248 deaths. During last week, the returns showed roughly that there was a daily average decrease of 300 new cases and 140 deaths In Granada and Saragossa this decrease was most noticeable, while in Madrid and Barcelona there was no change. In Valencia, Toledo and Zamora, there was an increase in the number of new cases and deaths. Since the outbreak of cholera in Spain 223,546 persons have been attacked by the disease and 82,619 have died.

W. E. GLADSTONE, the English statesman, who has been on a trip to Norway in the yacht Sunbeam, (famous by the books of Mrs. Brassey wife of its owner), has returned to England. His health is improving.

A DISPATCH from Pisa, Italy, on the 31st ult., says: “A terrible storm visited this city yesterday. The lightning caused great destruction. It struck and shattered the tower of the Church of St. Cecilia and that of the Church of San Giuseppe. The former is so badly split that it is expected to fall at any moment. Although subjected to the hardest storm known in Pisa during the present generation, the Leaning Tower remains uninjured.”

NEWS AND OTHER GLEANINGS.

—“I fear,” said James Russell Lowell in one of his afterdinner speeches, quoted by the Congregationalist, “that when we indulge ourselves in the amusement of going without a religion, we are not, perhaps, aware how much we are sustained at present by an enormous mass all about us of religious feeling and religious convictions, so that—whatever it may be safe for us to think, for us who have had great advantages, and have been brought up in such a way that a certain moral direction has been given to our character— I do not know what would become of the less favored classes of mankind if they undertook the same game.”

—The preachers at Ocean Grove this year have received a circular from the clergyman in charge, requesting them to keep their sermons inside of forty-five minutes at the most. It has been found by experiment, their reverend brother informs them, that sermons of greater length fatigue more than they edify.

—An orchard of cocoanut trees on the ocean front of Southern Florida has cost Ezra A. Osborn, a rich Jerseyman, not less than $100,000. The orchard stretches for sixty miles along the sea, and there are in it 200,000 thriving trees. These trees were brought in vessels from South America, and landed by means of surf boats built for the purpose.

—The blue pond lilies, sold by the florists, come from Boston and the pink from Cape Cod. White lilies may still be bought of boy venders on the streets, but the time of their glory is the second month of Summer. There is fine fragrance in the tinted flowers from New England. The lily ponds at Lansdowne in the Park have been worth seeing since the beginning of the midsummer season, and it may be said in passing that the happiest lot of frogs this side of the Great Dismal Swamp live in those very Lansdowne puddles.—Philadelphia Press.
