The criticism of the skating rink has
not only become conspicuous in the
press and pulpit, but it has joined to
gether curious forces. A humorous
paper describes the sober colloquy of n
saloon-keeper and minister oxer its
evils, each looking iqion it with long
faces, and equally serious concern. In
some states the institution has become
the subject of crudely drawn legislate
acts, that will cither fail of passage, or
fail of respect and attention in case they
should become law. Hut this criticism,
to be sure, is not all on one side ; for,
the rink has the large majority still in
its defence, and, il doctors and pulpits
pronounce against it, there arc doctors
and pulpits too on the other side.
Meantime, in Richmond, Indiana,
alone, nineteen factories employing a
thousand operatives, are turning out
daily a vast mimber of roller skates,
while in Centteville, Illinois, six new
patents hac been taken out for im
proements in the rolling gear, or in
the body of the skate itself. In spite
of adversity, and perhaps on account of
it, the rink flourishes ; and by a pro
posed substitution of huckwood for box
wood in this manufacture of the wheels,
it is believed that the price of the
skates, which arc now at least six dol
lars a pair for good ones, may be greatly
reduced. Chicago, it is said, uses now
six thousand pairs of skates of a single
make, and Elmira four thousand pairs
of the same, or another favorite style.
It would seem, therefore, as if the vio
lent criticism and anathemas against
roller jkattne are not, as yet, subduing it.
Out of the collision of argument on
the subject, though, the truth about it
will probably be attained in due time.
It is no argument acainst cnurcnes
as a writer remarked the o.hcr day
because it happened that . deacon of
one lately ran away with the minister's
wife ; and, if similar irregularities have
occurred at the rink, it is simply; be
cause human nature will show; itself
wherever people arc wont to congregate
together in masses frequently, no mat
ter how good or bad the cause may be
which draws them together. The wise
way is, to see what rules or methods
can be adopted to prevent such evils as
have happened, and not suppress what
is itself, in moderation, a, harmless and
delightful exercise and pastime.
In pursuance of this idea the repre
sentatives of the different rinks in
Chicago met at the Grand "Pacific
Hotel, in that city, a few days since,
and oreanized The Chicago Roller-
Skating Rink Association. One of the
speakers, as reported hy the Tribune
of that city, thought that the more
serious evils complained of "do not
exist in Chicago" ; but the constitution
and by-laws offered were made strong
enough to cover what has happened
The following gives a synopsis of the
me&ures it was resolved to adopt as
law and etiquette :
1 (1.) No person attending a rink
sltall approach a girl or woman in any
war. excent on a proper introduction,
unless it is done to aastst her in case of
. aa accident (and even then, we suppose,
'the tact of such assistance as m?y be
proffered shall not confer any bond ot
(.) The skating sessions shall not
exceed three hours duration and two
and u half hours is recommended. An
evening teuton is to dote at 10:30
o'clock at the latest, and ten o'clock is
uftesttd as even better. At either
one or the other of theie hours all
riakt must be dosed.
(j.) No test of speed to exceed a
distance of ten miles is to be permitted,
aad the fite-mile limit is favored.
(Setae strongly favored the abolition of
iH speed tests). Any test of endurance
Itvar saust not go beyond a three
. (4.) No liquor can be told in any
rink. Bor nd back-door access to
a ' . t .. r
ton near oy uauoweo. sraomng
1 otfjr be done Tn a room set apart
1 the roll the nna.
(5.) Ib addition to the abote, there
at to be a committee of censors ap
peialtd toy the association, which shall
"govern the aaorab of the rinks, so to
Mak." This coraaittee, on having
wek otiMoM endorsed by the president
f the aanrrielrrr. "has power to forbid
m awiertiinaifnt deemed objection
that." Ifaay rink BMnager "disregards
thai rowilirr'i decision" he "shall be
hy patents," and not by state law.
Nothing it taid in the report Moxc us
of the Attempt in some legislatures to
make the rinks a subject for license, as
liquor viloom are licenced, and for the
reason, perhaps, that there is little fear
that any surh provision will he likely
I lie idea ol the association, as the
Tribune is. is "to maintain roller-
skating at an amateur amusement, and
not permit it to degenerate tn such a
manner that it can be used as a money-
making scheme by professionals and
those who bark them. The standard
that they hae attained morally, in
Chicago, is declared to be high, and it
is the purpose of the association to
keep them "upon a plane where no ob
jection can be raised to them by the
press, the pulpit, or society,;
The step taken in Chicago will be
watched with interest, and may possibly
iccurc a universal and highly popular
sport from the condemnation of its
present enemies. Its friends, too, will
ie equally glad to see it protected from
abuse, for they do not deny that, like
other good things, it has had to contend
with some eils. The tendency it has
to absorb half the time of some people
will be checked by the reduction of
time to be established, which does not
necessitate any reduction of the profits,
as the admission fee will not be altered.
We notice that in the Black Hills,
Dakota, there is a continuous series of
sessions in the rinks. I here are not
only morning and afternoon sessions,
but an evening session follows, lasting
until midnignt and alter, l'robably the
frequenters of the last one are persons
who can welt be spared from those
which arc held at more discreet hours.
The rage which affects some oung
leonic who eo to the rink lias devel
oped some cuiious anecdotes. A girl
in the west sold her grand-mother s false
teeth to buy rink tickets with the pro'
cecds of them, and a devoted husband
in the east gave up house-keeping and
went to a hotel to board, in order that
his young wife might hae unlimited
liberty to enjoy herself with her roller
skates. Certainly, nothing but the
passion for alcoholic drinks can well be
keener than that shown for this amuse
ment, as illustrated by these instances,
and others no less touching.
We have seen it lately stated that
roller-skating although the first known
skates on wheels can be traced back to
1810 has come upon the word by
steps, in the progress of modern inven
tion. I he hrst wheel skates, were not
capable of the free and easy motion of
those now used. 1 tic perfection or the
idea on which they arc based is Amen
can ; and yet the earliest and most ex
tensive skating on wheels as they now
exist was done under American
patents in England. They were used
in Newport nearly twenty years ago,
but the first well-established rink of the
present type, and run as the present
rinks arc conducted, was established in
Cincinnati, in 1867
In Wisconsin, an artificial elephant,
composed of two men working under a
Irame and appropriate drapery, and ex
ceedingly life-like, Ins been making the
circuit of the rinks in that state, and
doing curious feats on wheel. In
battle Creek, Michigan, a Shetland )ony
has been taught to do fancy skating on
wheels, and is to exhibit himself during
the coming summer with a circus. By
another winter, his owner is to show
him off" in various leading rinks. As
horses luv; been taught to walk a rope,
there is no reason why a horse may not
carry his rider on wheels, and do other
curious things with the skates.
The horse will not escape the benefit
of the moralized rink, if the Chicago
rules generally prevail, as his exploits
will not be permitted an undue con
tinuance. But nothing hat been sug
gested, as yet, for the prevention of ac
cidents, or for their alleviation, but pa
tience and arnica. the managers
claim, however, that only one in rive
thousand who skate meets with an ac
cident What consolation there may be,
though, to the person who is seriously
hurt by a fall, in knowing that 999
who were skatinir at the same time, sot
off without injury, is difficult, says a
Uoiton paper, to imagine. A. Y. Hour,

and there join the Kussian troops,
whom he meant to' accompany into
Afghanistan, and set up his claims to
the present Ameers throne.
Mail advices from India differ signl
ficantly from official telegrams recently
rcccijajd concerning the loyalty of the
native chiefs and people. Orticul dis
patches have been unwarrantably rose-
colored. I hey have declared that the
Indian princes were impatient to dis
play their loyalty to England. Mail
ad t ices greatly modify the expectations
of gftfial telegrams, and indicate there
i a fceUng existing among the In
dians, which might prove anything but
advantageous to British prestige in
India i the event of a prolonged Anglo

capacity for twenty-five days, and buoy

The czar and royal family received
an ovation from the people at the
Grand Theatre, St. Petersburg, on the
evening of April 10th. Crowds of
people followed the royal party to the
gates of the palace.
Torpedoes have been .sunk jn the
canal binding St Petersburg with the
sea. Cronstadt, St, Petersburg and the
palace at Krasnoe-Selo are now con

A Brussels disnatch of the '1 tin lh)
stant says. The Le Nord, the? most"
rabid pro-Russian newspaper in Bel
gium, now predicts war between Russia
and England. Lc Nord is regarded as
the scmi-omcial organ or the Russian
Government, and this article is believed
to have been inspired.
There is a rumor afloat to the effect
that the Russian Government was
negotiating for the purchase, from the
Occidental and Oriental Company, ol
the steamers San 1'ablo and ban t'edro.
It is also rumored that the Russian
Minister to the United States has en
deavored to secure the services of a
naval officer in purchasing a number of
the small vessels used between ban
Francisco and the Sandwich Islands in
the transportation of sugar. The vessels
are to be used, the officer says, in prey
ing upon English commerce in Japan
ese and Indian waters, should war be
declared between Russia and England.

to the same offence and were sentenced
to three months each. This makes
six w ho have been sentenced to Yuma
this term. Others who are indicted
suddenly left for parts unknown.
Captain John Ay res, who came to
New Mexico with the California
