At 87 olllccs the amount of local
postage collected was less than one
half of the expenditure for earlier
Service. These 87 olllccs in the
aggregate collected 220,559.8-1 on
local matter, and expended 583,350.
I5G for carrier service, an excess of
expenditure of $302,798.52. A
reduction of the local rate to 1 cent,
on the present volume of business
would leave the carrier service a
heavy charge upon the general
revenues of the department at every
olllce save that at New York. An
important reduction of postage has
just been effected by changing the
domestic letter rate from 3 cents to 2.
For a time, at least, it will sensibly
diminish the postal revenue and im
pose a burden upon the general
"It would seem to be prudent to
wait until the deficiency shall have
been recovcicd, or at least more
definitely ascertained, before mak
ing a further inroad upon the reve
nues through a reduction of the
present rates of postage. The carry
ing of the mails should not be looked
to as a source of revenue, but the
service should be rendered as nearly
self-sustaining as possible. After
careful consideration I am of opinion
that the unit of weight for rating
first-class matter should be changed
from one-half an ounce to one ounce.
This change, in connection with-the
recent reduction of letter postage
from 3 to 2 cents, would place this
country on an equality with any
other iu respect of cheap postage.
There seems to be a popular impres
sion that 1 cent per copy is the
uniform rate for all newspapers.
Many persons, under this impres
sion, deposit in post-offices- news
papers which weigh more than two
ounces, and not exceeding three
ounces, bearing a 1-cent stamp.
Such papers are not entitled to be
sent, and, perhaps as a rule, are not
sent. , .This creates dissatisfaction
and ethnplnints. iV. Y. Herald.
MARRIAGE OF CIANTS.
Pittsburg (Pa.), Nov. 20th.
Patrick "William O'Brien, the Irish
giant, and Christiana D. Dunse, the
German giantess, weie married in
this city to-day. The ceremony was
performed in the German Evangeli
cal Church, and was witnessed by a
large concourse of people, including
the Mayor of Allegheny, John JVIc
Cullough, Margaret Mather, the
Aztec dwarfs, Indians, and the
snake-charmer. Outside the church
a crowd gathered in such numbers
as to obstruct traffic, in spite of the
efforts of a large force of police.
O'Brien wore n'f ull-dress suit. The
medal presented to him by the Land
League ornamented his breast. The
bride wore an orange-blossom wreath,
and a veil 'that" covered a superb
dress of white satin. In her hand
she held a bouquet of enormous size.
After the service the bridal party
drove at once to the museum and
held a public reception. The wedding
cake was the largest ever made,
measuring nine feet in circumference
and three feet in thickness. A great
loaf of bread,' five feet long, decor
ated the table. This was the first
"wedding of giants in America, and
the second in the world. The com
bined hight of the bridal pair is
fifteen feet three inches, and they tip
the beam at 549 pounds. The
wedding ring weighed seventeen
pennyweights, and was five inches in
BLOW FOR DLOW.
It appears that Germany now not
only prohibits the introduction of
American pork, but forbids absolute
ly tho transportation through the
Empire of American hog products in
sealed cans. This is, Consul Mason
asserts, to protect German dealers.
Tho cry of diseased pork is mere
clap-trap, intended to mask tho real
purpose. In the light of these facts
tho country will approve tho retalia
tory resolution of Representative
Townshend, prohibiting the impor
tation of any goods from Ge; many
which, upon tho advice of experts,
the President shall hold to be in
jurious to health. This is a case,
'evidently, in which tho "turn-thc-oth'er-cheek"
doctrine has no appli
cation. Nations are more likely to
give blow for blow. The President
iu his late message lias indicated that
retaliatory policy would please him,
and that iio will enforce it, if nuthori-
