The rating of vessels as now carried on by
the agents of Certain Insurance companies,
Without the vessel owuers having a voice in
the matter, is the cause of dissatisfaction and
eomplaint among vessel men. The result of
such ratlng.ls thought to be arbitrary, to say
the least, and sometimes, perhaps, governed
by caprice. Vessel owners have no confidence
fa this system, and have good reason to know
that In some cases, at least, they are made to
suffer Injustice." The agitation of the matter
now, is to secure a new survey and rating be"-
fore the beginning of business the coming ses
sion , with the desire to make such an arrange
ment, as will place the matter In the hands of
a committee so constituted as to have both the
owner aud insurer s interest represented. The
feeling is such, that there Is little doubt but
that a more Impartial, equal and just system
Will.be Inaugurated, one in which vessel own
ers will feel that they haye a voice In rating
their vessels, and thereby fixing the class of
freight they shall carry, and thereby the re
turns made to the owners pockets.

he shares largely In the pleasure he confers.
This is an inducenent for taking his train

Inducement There is another of equal, If not
pf paramount importance. It Is not, however,
of a social character. It concerns your com
fort In another direction, and not only your
comfort, but your security and safety. It
arises from the skillful manipulations of the
throttle valve of the locomotive, and a master
ly control over the propelling power of your
movements. From the moment of starting,
and all along the route, and at every success

you, that the man whose hand rests upon the
lever that regulates your motion, Is no novice
In bis calling. The steady, unwavering uni
formity of your velocity, becomes forcibly ap
parent, and as you think of it, you say to
yourself, "there is purpose and design in this
result The man to whose watchfulness and
care It Is due, understands his business, and is
Impressed with the importance of the trust
committed to him." The signal note of the
whistle is beard, and the brakes are applied,
and you become sensible of the gradual and
agreeable approach to a station. The momen
tum of the train Is lost so gently, that you
hardly realize when you come to a rest, un
less, perhaps, It is detected by the relative po-
slton of the train. to the station. You are re
minded again of the docility and obedience of
the Iron steed to his master's will. Having
come to a stand, it Is the right one, and there
is no need of short successive starts and stops

On Thursday evening, Deo. 11th, a few citi

M. Brettelle was made permanent President,
Mrs. Harrington Vice President and Dr. N. L.

hour at each meeting with reading, and one
hour In criticism and debate. It was voted
to meet again at H. R. Latimer's on Monday
eveulmt, the 15th inst i Mrs. Latimer and Mr.
Fetch wero appointed to read allowing them
to select their own pieces. 'Long before the
time for commencing the exercises of tbe eve

meeting was called to order, and after the
reading of the minutes of the previous meet

Ralph Waldo Emerson on '""Friendship."
Whether she designed it or not, the selection
certainly waa very appropriate for the com

("Washington dispatches intimate that onr
controversy with Spain over the Vlrgtnius af
fair Is not yet settled that the Government
will not be able to establish the fact that the
Virglnlus was entitled to the protection of tbe

tbe English authorities sustain the Spanish

-Mr. Douglass, Commissioner of Internal
Revenue, is represented as saying that the
Government receipts in his Department are
now as large as they were before the panic,
and as believing that they will exceed tbe es
timate by three million or four millions
by the end of the fiscal year. Secretary Rich
ardson has estimated the falling off of total
receipts at forty-two millions, but, if Mr.
Douglass is right, this estimate will be reduced
by internal revenue receipts some,' twenty-five
million and the natural increase on customs'
duties from now on will make the deficiency
ty When Coroners grow dishonest and
small-pox doctors swindle, there must be
something "rotten in Denmark." The latest
instance of this sort is the Coroner of Brook

gus Inquests, tbe papers being made out upon
physicians' certificates, and charged for as if
the inquests had been held upon tbe bodies.-
In addition to this sepulchral dishonesty, tbe
tax-payers have just discovered that they
have paid, during the year, 623 bogus cases of
small-pox, in view of which it is very clear
that some members of the Brooklyn Board of
Health need a thorough vaccination with tbe
virus of honesty. The Coroners and small
pox doctors have canght the mania, we are
now prepared to believe even tbe sexton and

Profound excitement has been caused
in Washington by the arrest and con

The difference between the French
and English systems of dealing with
the great disasters is aptly illustrated in
the case of the Ville du Havre. About
the time that a requiem mass was sung
in Havre with imposing ceremonies, the
Authorities ordered a formal investiga
tion into the responsibility for the dis
aster. The French started a public
subscription for the benefit of the un
dioiplined crew, who might have saved
more passengers had it not been' for
their demoralization. . While this was
a very generous thing tcj do, it was not
so just, nor so much in the interest of
publio safety, as an official inquiry in
to the cause of the disaster; The state
ment made by Captain Robertson, of
the Lock Earn, strengthens the impres
sion, already given by others, that the
disaster could have been averted if the
YiUe du Havre had been managed with
Ordinary prudence and skill ; and that,
after it ooourred, many more lives could
have been saved if the crew had been
under proper discipline. Publio safety
demands the fullest investigation of this
matter from France, which exercises
jurisdiction over the Company, officers,
and crew pf the Ville du Havre, ,

A very determined feeling prevails in
Administration circles, says a Washing

the future, tbe sailing of fillibursting ex
peditions from our shores for Cuba must
be prevented, and, if statements of per

steps have already been taken which will
arrest any movements which Cubans re
siding in tbe United States may have in
progress to extend to their friends in
The Administration is also determined
to extend all possible aid to Castelar's
Government, that the Republicans may
be firmly established in Spain, and will
act as an ally to that country in resist
ing attempts to overthrow the Republic.
