Charles Ulrica, the notorious and accom

Court, yesterday, pleaded guilty, after with

authorities as the most accomplished and

detection and conviction at this lime arc
mainly dne to the efforts of Cob Wood, Chief
United States Detective, of Washington, now
In this city.
Charles Ulrlch was born In Westphalia, and
received a liberal education, but early In life
developed remarkable talents as a draughts
man. He is about thirty-three years old.
At the commencement of the Crimean war he
went to England, and joined the royal rifle
brigade as draughtsman, served throughout
that warfaltbfully, and received an honorable
discharge. He then came to tbls country,
and settled In New York, where ho com
menced the business of an engraver, and car
ried it on for two years successfully, having
realized enough to purchase a nice little resi
dence in that city, which one of his wives
now enjoys. Ulrlch commenced extensive
counterfeiting about two or three years ago
in New York, and made as much as $30,000
on United States bills, according to his own
statement. The authorities soon discovered
a connection between his establishment and
the most expert counterfeiters, and thence
forth his course was precarious and down
ward. He was arrested In New York first,
and imprisoned, but escaped before trial.
lie was arrcsica next in uacuaa uy ine
United Statu authorities, but before being
broncht Info the States broke jail In Toronto
and escaped. Knowing bis daring character,
special watch was kept upon his actions,
even to calling him every half hour during
bis connnement mere, dui in spito oi tue pre
caution he succeeded In outwitting his keep
ers and effected bis escape Willi a shoe
maker's awl picked up in the eboeebop of
the jail, Ulrlch made a graver, and with it
fashioned a key for bis cell ont of the iron
hoops of the slop-pail. He made a rope of
his blanket, scaled tbc jail walls, and escaped.
When he reached the Niagra River the officers
were on bis heels, lie crossed mat liver a
little above the falls in a lickety skiff, and
came near being drifted Into the Irresistable
current a little above where It takes its fear
ful leap. He made for this city, and com
menced or continued operations as a manu
facturer and dealer in counterfeit United
States bank bills.
While serving out a term in the Sing Sing
Prison, New York, he contracted an intimacy
with the jailor's sister-in-law, and when re
leased' married her, having at the same time
a wife living. About that time be became
acquainted with James Colbert, an English
boxer, who keeps a "crossman's" den in
New York, and through him with Mary
Brown, a shrewed German! girl living at
Colbert's house. The value of Ulrlch as a
counterfeiter was recognized at once by
Colbert, and he kept him close at work on
I plates, allowing no one to nave access lonim.
Ulrich Is a good-looking fellow, and soon
won the favor of Mary Browu, who reci
procated his allection Dy communicating ma
alias Harwood. a notorious New-York coun
terfeiter, and he, In conspiracy with Mary
Brown and Kate Gross, took Ulrlch into
full companionship ana started Hesiwaru,
, in pursuit ol lortunc, on tneirown response
Ulrich'a original wife came with him, and
tbc entire party arrived In this city, 'lhey
rented a tv o-storv frame house at Clevea, in
this county, and set to work issuing $100
counterfeit bills. .Mrs. Ulrica was sent oacK
to New-York as unnecessary, and the adven
turous Charles mado love to a pretty German
gtrl in this city, then living witn ncr iatncr,
an industrious tailor " over the Rhine." To
make a long story short, he married her and
set her to worK snoving me new -nun
dreds." Marv Brown not realizine sum
clentiy from the business, suspected Burdcll
of treachery, and tent Kate Gross to Phila
delphia to act as the Eastern agent lor me
new "hundreds." of which she procured any
quantity from Ulrich on the scoro of their
hrst love. Col. Wood was watching the opera
tions closely, and discovered at last that
the counterfeit mouey reached Philadelphia
irom umcinnau turougu Auams express
Company, and accordingly put a detective In
the Cincinnatfofflce to watch the forward
ing operation. Burdell was arrested, first,
and kept in the room of a hotel for 'some
time. Ulrich turned up next, was arrested
and also taken to tbc hotel. He made a
partial confession, and promised to tell
where the plates were If bis wpmcn were
allowed to go Unpunished as accomplices.
Ulrich was taken to New-York on promise
of the authorities to do so. lie was then
transferred to Brooklyn, but escaped to
Canada, and passing, through there, as al
ready shown, reached Cincinnati a second
He was betrayed here by his women, who,
with that unaccountable perversity of de
praved feminine nature, cling to the object
of affection and seek at the same time to
destroy It, Ulrich made frequent attempts
to break jail here, the last only tbc night be
fore last. He succeeded in procuring small
files and had cut through his window-bars
and unscrewed the nuts on the hinges of his
cell door before being discovered. From all
accounts Ulrich is the counterfeiter of, the
Seven-thirty bonds, about which there was
such a pow-wow In Washington some time
ago, and it Is believed that he has made more
plates than any other five counterfeiters in
the country, lie is highly intelligent, with
agreeable and plausible manners, cool as a
steel trap, and always sclf-pussessed and
ready. It would be difficult to say who is
most entitled to credit for his detection,
but with it the great gang of large counter
feiters in the country is broken up, and will
cease from worrying until an equally bold
spirit arises to reorganize them, if, indeed,
Ulrich docs not again escape and pursue
his counterfeiting career. t'incfiinarf Com.
Correspondent of tho X. Y. Times.
In resuming the description of the recent
excursion of the officers and guests of the
Chicago and Northwestern and Union Paci
fic Railroads to tho heart of the Rocky
Mountains, I find that in tbc haste of writing
my first article, I omitted to mention an ex
ceedingly interesting, and, perhaps profound
ly Important discovery, which has been lately
made at Antelope, a station 450 miles west of
Omaha. Iu digging a well for the railroad
company, there was readied, at the depth of
sixty-eight feet, a layer of human bones
undoubtedly human, from tbc fact that there
was a scull and jaw, as well as other bones
from tbc extremities and trunk. I know
very little about the discover', other than
that bones are this day visible in the earth
that has been thrown up from the well; and
I should think that tbis extraordinary cir
cumstance for 6uch It seems to me would
attract the attention of geologists and scien
tific men. Fpr if it be correct that human
bones are found in tho ordinary line of for
mation in the tertiary vein, I suppose there
will have to be a revision of current scientific
opinion, both as to the origin of the human
race ana the date of its existence upon tbis
planet. The subject, as I have said, is of the
profoundest interest, and it remains for our.
tavanf to dctermino whether these human
bones were covered so deeply by a cataclasm
or were deposited there In prehistoric times.
Some of the army surgeons at Fort Saunders
or other posts on the line of tbc Pacific Rail
road would probably aid in this investigation,
II no other means of getting information
could be obtained. I may add that a friend
or mine in this city, who has passed over the
road, has a femoral-bone in his possession,
which proves beyond question that tho relics
are of the human race. The excavators as
sert that in the process of digging they have
found layers of bones in Which the remains
of elephants and tigers were unearthed, it
being known to everybody that these animals
are extinct species on this continent.
These remains were the subject of a rather
amusing inquiry at Laramie, by a hirsute,
slouchy, very rough and yet highly theologic
al frontiersman, who said to the possessor of
the strange relics, looking at them curionsly
as he spoke: "Oh I some bones 1 What
sort, eh?" "Well, I Ihiuk, .the femornl
bono of a man," was theanswer. "What?"
drawled out the rude man of the plains, with
terrible emphasis. "A man's hip bone," re
plied my friend. "How you suppose tliey
got there?" "I don't know," "You be
lieve they were buried there?" "Yes."
" When?r' "Well, say a million yearsagot"
"Ha! hat" roared ont the frontiersman,
"You're one of them'feilows that don't be
lieve the Bible." "Why not?" said my
friend. "Well, don't you kuow, the Bible
says Adam made the world out of dirt 3,000
years ago?" "Well, yes!" was the reply,
" I believo the Bible does say something of
that kind" the last speaker evident ly having
in mind the maxim that " it is dangerous to
argue with the master of thirty legions,"
and his opponent In this Instance having In
foil view an Arkansas bowie-knife and a
brace of revolvers.
Extraordinary ITehoibx or x Ror. The
Rev. E. J. Beck, the Bishop of Newfound
land's Commissary, relates an heroic incident
furnished bim for that colony:
A poor boy, whose name no one knows,
but we may hope it Is recorded in the Book
of Life, found three little children, who, like
himself, had been washed ashore from oueof
the many wrecks, wandering along that
dreary coast in tbc driving sleet They were
crying bitterly, having been parted from their
parents, and not knowing whether tbey were
drowned or saved. The poor lad took them
to a sheltercdpot, plucked moss for them,
and made them a rude, soft bed, and then,
taking off his own coat to cover them, sat by
them all the night long, soothing their terror
until tbey fell asleep. In the morning, leav
ing them still sleeping, he went in search of
the parents, and, to his great Joy, found them
looking fur the children, whom tbey had
given np for dead. He directed them where
to find them, and then went on himself to
try to find some place of shelter and refresh
ment But when the parents were returning
with their recovered little ones, tbey found
their preserver lying quite dead upon the
snow, not far from where they parted with
him. The long exposure. In his exhausted
state, was too much for his little strength,
and having saved his little charge a stranger
to them as they to him he laid down and
Sas Frascisco, July 8. The proprietors

fortunately tbe tables were turned, and tbe
fire extinguished tbe aunlhilator and turned

was trifling, as tbe ship had been stripped

Richard M. Hoe, Esq., is one of tho most
successful business men and manufacturers
of New York. His fame as the inventor of
tbc great American cylinder printing press is
now world-wide, and his factories In this city
and in England give employment to a large
number of people. All the great dally news
papers and many of the weekly Journals of
New York and other cities, in tbls country
and in Europe, are now printed on these
presses, llialnventionhas contributed more
to tbe general diffusion of knowledge among
the masses by means of the dally newspaper
and weekly journals than any other agency,
and It justly ranks among the greatest
achievements of the age. He was born in
humble life in the city of New York, Sep
tember 12, 1812. His father was an English
machinist, who came to the United States to
seek his fortune, In the year 1803. After fol
lowing the occupation ot a carpenter for some
years, he finally commenced the manufacture
of printing presses In 1825. A brother of the
elder Hoc also came out to tbls country and
followed the occupation of a mason. Both
of these brothers were nen of great reliabili
ty of character, and were held in much es
teem. Richard succeeded his father in busi
ness in 1SS3, and in association with his
brothers, he continued It to the present time.
They have established the largest manufac
tory of printing presses in this country, and
bucIi is the demand for their presses abroad,
that they have been obliged to establish a
factory in England. They also manufacture
a great variety of other presses. Their ofjlco
b in narrow old Gold street, on the site where
their business was first made successful.
Mr. Hoe's first patent was in 1S42, for im
provements in single and double cylinder
pres6cS,Vwbereby six thousand Impressions
per hour could bo obtained. He patented
other improvements in lS45,andinJulyIS47,
patented bis celebrated type-revolving print
ing press, which is now admitted to be the
best in the world, and by which twenty-thousand
impressions per hour can bo given. As
few of our readers probably know what this
press really is, wc will attempt a brief descrip
tion of it, premising that a type-revolving
press was patented by Nicholson, in Eng
land, in 1700, but the invention did not suc
ceed In holding the types.
Some time since the Messrs. Hoc stated to
us that one-hundred and thirty-three presses
bad been made In the United States. Of this
number, sixty-threo arc in use in tho United
States, tbirty-flvu in Eugland. eight in Scot
land, one In Ireland, one in I ranee, and five
in Australia. Besides these, four have becu
made In England under the jiatent, and two
Iu France. The London Timet, and many
other leading journals of Europe are printed
on tbe Hoe press.
Mr. Hoe has passed considerable time in
Europe, called thither partly by the introduc
tion of his press there, and partly by a love
of travel. Ho bas given to this press the
study of a lifetime. His aim has not been to
produce a machine of ingenious construction
as much as it has been to invent one of the
most practical utility in the achievement
Like all inventors, he has met with all man
ner of discouragement on his road to success,
but being a man of remarkable perseverance,
of rare Inventive genius, and understanding
thoroughly what was wanted in a fast print
ing press, he devoted energy, "talents and ex
perience to the accomplishment of his pur
pose. The result Is the Hoc press, which,
perhaps, more than any modern machine,
has received the encomiums of the world.
Mr. Hoe Is a quiet, unassuming gentleman.
He never made himself conspicuous In any
way save by his invention. He Is a man
noted for his sterling traits of character. His
great press is not more truo to mechanical
laws than be is to those of honor and justice.
in :act, me popuiarcuaractertstics or toe man
have bad much to do with tho success of the
invention. He has been found reliable in all
his statements, and while enthusiastic In fa
vor oi ins press, never promised more than
It could readily accomplish.
He Is a well proportioned, flue looking man.
His head Is large, with regular and promi
nent features, which are full of expression.
His eyes are full, and his brow is Intellectual.
You see at a glance that he is a man of men
tal and moral force, and not less personal
energy. He Is courteous and affable, and In
tho truest sense a high-toned gentleman.

Female Operatives. It Is well worth
while to note tho gradual advancement that
appears to have been, made In tho extension
of the field open to female effort, and'gratl-
; iu uc auiu iu ueiieve mat as oia preiu-
Ices die away and tho capabilities of
class of operatives become better understood
ana appreciated, they may rise to the com
paratively independent position now occu
pied as workmen by the sterner sex.
The number of female operatives, as com
pared with that of men, in New York city,
was ascertained some years ago to approxi
mate tbc ratio of thirty-eight to one hundred,
but of late It bas doubtless increased, owing
to the number of new occupations which
of late have been made available them, or
which they have more largely followed, and
among which may be named printing, engra
ving, photograph coloring, and telegraphy.
As compositors tbey have proved very suc
cessful, and earn from eleven to twelve dol
lars per week, being paid the 6ame per one
luuusuuu cms as men.
They are even employed at press work, for
which thei- receive an average of six dollars
per week; and also as binders, book-sewers,
and gliders, for which the wages vary from
five to ten dollars is week. In each of 'these
occupations, it is said, with apparent reason,
that they are steadier and more reliable than
tbe maiu operatives. As engravers, women,
if skilled, can earn about twenty dollars a
week) but this is subject tothe serious draw
back of there beiog no certainty of continu
ous' employment Among the few branches
of work in which female operatives meet
with no direct competition, may bo mentlom
tioncd the somewhat laborious one of bur
nishing silver and gilded ware, at which they
make from eight to nine dollars a week.
The clothing business and the manufacture
of corsets, hoopskirts, etc., probably employs
the larger proportion of labor of which we
are speaking, and the wages paid may be said
to average about seven dollars a wei. As
a fnrorablo contrast to ihla low rate of com
pensation, It may be mentioned that compe
tent saleswomen receive much higher wages,
there being ouo or two instances In which It
Is said that a salary of five thousand dollars
Is cheerfully given ; bnt It must of course be
understood that tbe recipients are persons
having great experience, and capable or con
trolling a circle of customers.
it should be a subject or congratulation
that among our people the demand ror labor
is so great that none of tbe baleful results
that are said to have taken place In England
from tbc Introduction of female labor are to
be feared, for instead of permanently lower
ing the average of wages, it may be said to
liberate an increased proportion of male
workmen for tbe heavier and more arduous
classes of industry. Let employers facilitate
the entrance or females to any field of em
ployment ior wnicn metr strength is fitted;
et Inventors reduce the drn-rcrv of labori
ous occupations, until such are brought with
In tbeir capabilities or performance; let the
thoughtful ones of tbc community at large
ponder tbe subject, not merely as a passing
topic of remark or newspaper comment, but
seriously, as ono of tbe most Imnortant of
all tbe Industrial questions of the time, and
pernaps some aay oromer me Darsn lines of
trade may be swerved and bent until the
wages of women shall aDcroximate more
nearly, and we may add, more Justly, to those
