SOME ON GRASSHOPPERS

Chicago Times: Capt. Swinburne of the schooner C. Harrison says that while about 10 miles out between Racine and Waukegan, he observed the water in every direction as far as he could see was full of grasshoppers. They were so thick on the surface that it would have been impossible to put one's finger down without touching them, and all of them were alive. As the wind was very strong off the land in that vicinity on Friday morning, the captain concludes that the swarm were blown into the water.
