termitiutiou of llm uiHiiner of distributing llic
money appropriated by the act of Match "A,
1691, for tho payment of French spoliation
claims were last week decided In the Supremo
Court of the United Mate. Two of them came
from Massachusetts aud ono from Connecticut,
and iu all of them payment of thu money was
ordeiod to be made to the devisees and legatees
of the original claimant. From those judg
ments those next of kin nt the presout time
nprnnled to tho Supremo Court of the United
Tho conclusion, iu thu Supreme Court's opin
ion, was that il was the intent of Cong res that
the money should go to the next of kin living
at the time of -tho pnug of tho act March 3,
lfeOl and that tho distribution was to be made
according to tho statutes governing tho distri
bution of estates iu the iscvcrsd Staler. The
next of kin were th:o ncaiest of blood at that
date. The judgments of tho State courts were
reversed, and the causes remained for further
proreudiugs not inconsistent with this opinion.
The decision is important, affecting, as it doe,
tho distribution of this fund among claimants
iu several States.
The Venezuelan Commission held a meeting
bust week, at which reports were re.'id from tho
individual members upon the progress they are
making with tho pattieular matters of investi

can. Word has come from Loudon to tho effect
that tho British Government is preparing a
supplement to tho Blue Book containing trans
lations. of documents generally referred to in
tho first volume, which is expectod to reach
Washington very soon.
Tho Houso Committeo on Military Affairs
last week decided to report favorably the plan
fostered by tho Maumeo Valloy Monumental
Association, and other organizations, for tho
purchase of battlefields of the Maumeo Valley.
A bill introduced by Mr. Southard, with an
appropriation of $1.1,000 for beginning tho work,
will bo reported. The plan contemplates tho
acquirement by tho Government of Fort In
dustry. Fort Mofcs. Fort Miami. Fort Defiance,
Fort Wayne, the battlefield of Fallen Timbers,
and tho piece of ground at Pttt-in-Bay, on
Luko JSrio. where soldiers and sailors of tho
war of 1812 are buried. Under tho hill the
Secretary of War is authorized to inclose riio
pieces of ground acquired, and to erect suita
ble monuments and tablets to the memory of
tho men who fell there.
ARMY AND NAVY.
Tho Special Board, consisting of Capt. Pick

Rosp, which was appointed to mako tho trip
from Port Royal to Hampton Roads on tho

A statement issued by Chief Constructor

M.-ij, Gcorgo H. Amies has again been called

beas corpus from imprisonment on tho ground
of writing an improper letter to Gen. Schoflold

and is still under charges for insubordination.
His wifo has now tho second time sued him for
divorce, having, as sho alleges, only withdrawn
her first suit becauso of his promise to bcharo
ill a more kindly manner towards her. Sho
sets forth iu her bill that bo is of a temper
furious and uncontrollable; that he is always
in ditliculty, aud has for somo lime continued
a systematic course of brutal conduct, so as to

Tho darkies hero have a great love for flowers,
aud their gardens aro overflowing with blos
soms, from tho first timid little crocus in tho
Spring to tho last gay chrysanthemum in tho
Autumn. Ouo darky who has tho sorriest
looking old cart-horse that ever was a dirty,
gray-white, thin, unkempt crcaturo with
mournful eyes aud a dejected tail decorates
tho steed with pear-blossoms iu tho Spriug, and
it's tho most whimsical effect to sec tho fresh
white blossoms tricking out tho old horse.
Tho market men, too, havo a fancy for using
flowers, but their efforts havo not tho touch of
pathos that tho other has. Tho butchers deco
rate the beef aud lamb and other meats with
nosogays of blossoms littlest iff piuk-aud-nhito

stalls look dainty with blossoms among the
wares, butsomojiow tho flowers and tho beef
aro a horrible combination, and yet it is com-
mcndablo in thebutclier to like flowers and to
decoralo his stall, and one likes him to do it
whilo bewailing the effect.
Recently there lias been considerable discus
sion iu tho papers as to what coustitulcs an
ideal wife it isa'n bid question, aud one that
always excites interest. Jt seems a little odd
to limit her ideality in that fashion to her
wifely duties. It would seem that an ideal
wife, mother, sister, friend, cousin, auntie
tho ideal woman is ail tho same. As she has
to sustain these other connections as well as
tho matrimonial one, she probably can find
tho same qualities that make her dosirablo iu
one capacity will servo to make her so in the
others. WitkotiMttoinptitig to dofino entirely
what this ideality.may bo for every woman has
apparently a different "kind yet there aro cer
tain characteristics (hat endear a womau.toher
friends, and these, according to my lights, may
be summed up in well, to make it as short 03
possible, cleanliness and simplicity. Cleanli

be simplo enough that sho can chat and g03sip

that they-have a part in tho sweet philosophy
of life, but that their interest is short-lived.
Tho date of Johnny's vaccination, or that Ma

fow dayp, from tho conversational topics. Sho
will do well to havo an interest in hooks, china,
art, botany, history, music, or something im
personal to give her opportunity to work off
her ''tempers" or "blues." Thero is noth
ing like an outside interest to dispel personal
grievances. It is well for her to learn to bo
abio to eco beauties and graces in tho people
arouud her, even iu those whom sho does not
like. Of courso wo aro bound to liko somo
folks more than others, hut dislikcsaro usually
quite as much whimsical as thoy aro deeply
founded. Very few out-and-out villains and
very sew saints are placed iu our midst, and it
is well to I e charitable in regard to tbo faults
of others with a bit of memory for our owu
misdoings. If alio add to this charity for her
neighbors, a certain onthusiasui and loyalty

It is a difficult matter to keep palms green
nnd thriving; ono rather oxpectsvtrrcm to dio
after a Winter in tho house, but occasionally wo
find a woman who keep3 hers growing year
after year, with new leaves coming out fresh
aud vigorous. As palms aro rathor an expen
sive luxury, it is well to hoed the ad vico of suc
cessful growers. Water the palms a little every
day; wash the leaves, upper and under sides,
onco a week with a soft cloth or sponge and
with plenty of lukewarm water; keep the soil
looscaround tho roots; never allow ittobecomo
dry and caked.

A description of Boj.i Bonhenr's latest work
is most .interesting. Thu picture, which 13
called "Tho Duel," has been put on privato
view in London. Tho work depicts tho com
bat iu 1731 -between the celebrated stallions,
the Godolphin Arabian and Hobgoblin. The
scene is a sunlit paddock iu Lord Godolphin's
stud farm at (log Magog, near Cambridge. The
niagnificout black Arabian ha3 already almost
overcouio hhi hardly loss handsome antagonist,
tho nearlywhito Hobgoblin. IJeariug up and
biting furiously, tho victor is not only striking
Hobgoblin with one oT his fore feet, but with
his enormous' chest he is pressing upon him.
He is about to throw the weaker animal over
ou tho meadow, and, although Hobgoblin
vongefully bites his enemy's right shoulder, it
is manifest that ho cannot long resist an utter
defeat. Tho design is not only one of tho most
lifeliko of tho great artist's making, hut iu
the masculine drawing and accomplished mod
eling of tho horses, equals any of her former
productions. Mile. Hon hour's rare sense of
stylo is manifest at its very best in this pow
erful picture, in which, the horsc3 being nearly
half tho sizd of life, tho effect brilliant' sun
light and tho coloring rich and limpid, 'that.
scnao hai full play. Tho result is a triumph
not tho less wonderful when wo remembor
that tho artist has just pasjed her "1th birth
day. "The Dual" is beiug engraved. K. Y.

Tho Johnson projectile, which went through
seven inches of harvoyized platc-arraor re
cently, when tho ordinary projectiles would
scarcely dent it, is a peculiarly shaped thing.
It is forged from steel under a heavy hydraulic
pressure. Over its sharp point is placed a cap
of soft hat tough steel that looks liko the cover
of a milk-can. Tho resemblance has given the
projectile tho name of tho "milk-can,"
Tho object of this cap is to protect the first
impact against tho hard harvoyized surface, as
it is thero that most projectiles aro turned aside
and broken up. Tho cap spreads out liko tin
foil a3 the sharp-pointed mas? forcc3 its way
through the remainder of tho plate.
