Gillera in the field, but from Gen. Sherman's hoadquarters at Washington. Did Gen. Shermin ever hear of the recipe, beginning " first catch your rabbits." - The Detroit Tribune insinuates that anti-milk ndulteration petitions were 80 manipulated as make their names do duty in praying the passage of the park bill : and tjiat other petitions were so couverted and used. - " The King and Quaen of Denmark are to visit London in May." That's oue of the very iuipjrtant items of news which oainu over the cable a few days since : and the cable is not yet reported broken. - Hon.

Y.) Opera Houso has been arrested on a charge of ej eet ing John F Payno and wife, colored.

IT HAS been frequently said that there was a marked resemblanco between Gov. Felcii, of our city, and the late Uorach Geeley; and in faet we onoo knew a person not acquainted with the Governor to pronounco his portrait as that of Mr Geeeley. And now tho Governor relates an incident in tho samo line.
