In regard to the advanced prices of raw material for the manufacture of beer in Munich, the breweries there have raised the price considerably : but the fun is that the. public of that capital will not submit to it. In consequence there is a regular beer strike. On the ist of April—the fa'rst day of the advance —publicans who sold seventy to eighty liters at working men's dinners only sold ten liters. Six hundred laborers in an ironfoundry agreed they ■would have no more beer, aud nono was allowed to go into the foundry's canteen. The beer also sent to other large factories was returned, and only light wines were used. The landlord of refreshment rooms on the Munich Railway, where there are fully 1000 working men, returned his beer to the Royal Lion Brewery, and from similar causes the best and most frequented beer-houses in Munich are empty. No doubt, as ohe Bavarian Government derive a large revenue from the breweries, !^a settlement will be effected shortly. A " real good Bavarian," as the saying is, rise 3in the morning a beer barrel, and goes to bed a barrel of beer. Raise the price of his pet luxury, and he will soon be a democrat of the first class.—(Translated for this paper.) A telegram from New \'ork says some months ago two Mormon elders were sent upon a proselytising mission to Florida, and settled in the district of Vernon. At first they attracted little public attention, hut they made a number of converts, especially among the younger women. Arrangements had been made by the ciders to start with about a dozen of their fair converts for Utah, but the male relatives of the. latter resolved to prevent the emigration, On the 12th May just as the party wore about to start, the men appeared, thrashed the elders in an unmerciful manner, and drove them into tfte swamps. The girls were then compelled to strip their backs and flagellate each other with switches as a warning to all southern women to have nothing to do with Mormon missionaries. The two elders were unable to extricate themselves from the swamps and they perished of exhaustion and exposure. IS DEAFNESS INCURABLE % J.
