The Rev. Mr. Carroll, of Asbury

finished last Sunday evening, that wa

He said that it gave the appearance oi

if an uncivilized character to it, foi
pipons to begin to stampede and leave
the i-lmreh before the benediction was
pronounced and the services concluded.
We notice that only one person leit
churi'h last Sunday evening before tlu
last words of the benediction fell from
thi pastor's lips. It is charitable t(
cnnnise that the person that left waf
called away by sickness in his family,

within the range of what Mr. Carroll
said would be an excuse for a person to

At set of sun lifo in Peking, as "far
as the streets aro concerned, ceases to
exist; doors are closed, shops shut, and
tbo inhabitants retire within their
houses. Kot even the most important
thoroughfares are illuminated; at cer
tain comers, where the police have
their stations, miserable dirty paper
lanterns are lit up, which shed no light
whatever. Every one-who goes abroad,
whether on foot, in Sedan-chair, or by
cart, muBt carry a lantern. TJie streets
of the Imperial and Tartar cities may
be said to be entirely deserted; it is in
the Chinese city only that there is
anything going on at night. Each city
is shut off from the others at sundown,"
and the gates are not again opened un
der any circumstances until daybreak.
I resided in the Tartar city, and it was
in the Chinese city that I wished to
make my nocturnal ramble, so that
there was no remedy but to make a
night of it. My companions declined
to accompany me, so I had reluctantly
to undertake the excursion alone.
My guile hired a cart for the whole
night, and we started from our hotel at
about half-past six in the afternoon.
It was necessary to set out thus early In
order to pass through the gate before
it was locked. I had not yet dined, so
I directed my interpreter to conduct
me to the best hotel in tho place, and
gave him carte blanche to order for me
and himself the best dinner procura
ble. I need scarcely add that an inn
of European character was entirely
out of the question; the only European
hotel in the whole of Peking is that
kept by M. Vrard, in the Tartar city,
where I was staying. I knew this per
fectly well, and had made up my mind
for a Chinese repast, served in Chinese
fashion. It was in the narrow court
yard, then, of a thoroughly native rest
houso that the cart stopped. My con
ductor, a most excellent and thought
ful fellow, had taken the precaution of
bringing my travelling-rugs, which, if
useful to alleviate the bruises caused
by the jolting of the cart, were now
equally so to. obviate the hardness of
the brick couch in the rest-house. He
spread them then on the kang, and I
was not sorry to lay m6 down and take
a short repose after a long ride. "With
book and cigar I whiled away the time
until my dinner should be ready. In
about half an hour it was served, and
copious enough it was in its way; fish,
chicken, mushrooms, becJie de mer (a
species of edible sea weed, brought, I
believe, from Japan, of which the
Chinese are exceedingly fond), all in
separate dishes, or rather small basins,
with two sorts of gravy in little bowls,
two kinds of pickles, and soft, un
leavened rolls of white flour, quite hot.
Tho drinkables were samsJiu of two
different strengths, the one to iinuibe
while eating, the other at dessert the
former was flat, mild, and rather fla
vorless, the latter rpugh and potent
both, to my palate, disagreeable. Sam
sJiu is a spirit distilled usually from
rice, although it may be made from po
tatoes, beans, or sugar-cane; it is of a
whitish color, and not altogether unlike
bad whiskey much under proof. It
.serves the Chinese in lieu of wine,
which they never make from the grape.
Some fruit was brought, and the repast
concluded with the inevitable tea.
Chopsticks were the only implements
supplied, but as I had already become
tolerably adroit in their manipulation,
I was quite able to get my victuals into
my mouth without the use or any other
instrument. I can not say that I en
joyed my meal. It was not the first
time that I had tasted pure Chinese
cuisine, so that the food was not alto
gether foreign to me, nor wers the
viands in their way badly cooked, but
the taste of almost everything one eats
is more or less acquired, and a matter of
education; as my tongue was unschooled
in the language, so my palate had not
yet been tought to appreciate the
Anything more primitive, strangef
and weird than the Chinese quarter of
Peking by night can hardly be imag
ined. "Dim darkness" in the tortuous
streets, unbroken by a single ray from
the sombre houses, and unrelieved by
the paper police-lanterns, posted at rare
intervals, looking in the distance like
spectres, or by those of the few pedes
trians, which, bobbing up and down in
the obscurity, have the 'appearance of
so many will-o'-the-wisps; the rumb
ling of an occasional cart, for which
one has to make way at the risk of
falling into a yawning cess-pool, the
black depths of whicl as I held my
lantern over the brink, looked still
more horribly black in the gloomy
night; the monotonous sound of the,
watchmen striking together the pieces
of bamboo with which they announced
their presence; the groans of the men
dicants crouching in the doorways; the
cries of the ambulant venders of food
who wander through, the street, or at
tract stray passers-by to their tempor
ary stalls, pitched for the nonce in
some out-of-the-way nook or corner
all these strange sounds and appari
tions suggested to my mind a home of
evil spirits, the departure of demons
after a Sabbat meeting, or the breaking
up of pagans on a dark "WaJpurgis
night. A thunder-storm now burst
upon us, and added its effect to the
lugubrious scene. The lightning was
vivid in the extreme, and the rain
came down in suchtorrenfe that the
thoroughfares were soon converted
into muddy water-courses, and fur
ther exploration -was rendered impossi
ble. My conductor proposed that we
should return to the rest-house, out as
it was already long" past midnight, I
ordered a trial at the gate. My sug
gestion proved to be good. A mandarin
on his way to the palace had just
passed throngh, and the custodian,
caringjnore for his comfort than for
orders, or thinking perhaps that no one
would be stirring in such terrible
weather, had omitted to close tho por
tals after tKe- official. "We got through,
then, without-nwterance. The storm
had rendered the morning air very
chilly, and I was not sorry to regain
my hotel and creep into bed. '
The employment of the pig in search
ing for truffles (a kind of mushroom )s
probably originated in Italy in the
fifteenth century, and his services are
now highly valued in this connection.
But it is a kind of pig quite different
from the obese animal which is the
pride of breeders. He trots before his
master, and on reaching the place of
search he smells the ground and stops
where a truffle has attracted him by its
aroma. A curious scene then ensues.
The pig begins vigorously to dig his
snout into tho ground, throwing up tho
earth and stones, sometimes kneeling
on his short forelegs so as to obtain, a
betterpurchase. When he has reached
the truffle, however, the gatherer stops
in, and with an iron prong disengages
it from the soil. He generally manages
to save it from the hungry jaws of his
agile auxiliary, but sometimes the pig
will seize it and run off, the'gatherer
pursuing. After much grunting and
resistance, however, the animal is in
timidated into giving up his prey, and
the grotesque struggle ends. The
gatherer is careful not to beat the pig
in case tho latter might refuse his
future services, or become too distrust
ful. The dog is also employed as an
assistant in truffle gathering. the
barbont or barbet dogs of the Milanese
and Piedmont being regarded as the
best. Their use in this way also
onginated in Italy. At one time, in
the German courts, "truffle hunting'
with dogs was quite a fashion. But
where the truffle is largely cultivated
as a lucrative product, the pig is gener
ally preffered on various accounts. He
has greater force of snout, and can dig
up hard ground better, doing three
fourths of the work -of excavation.
The dog is sooner fatigued, is -less
steady at his work, and often wounds
his paws in scraping out the stony or
compact ground ; besides, ho leaves his
master more to do. Still, tho dog is
found a valuable aid to the poacher of
truffles. These men, living by fraud,
are obliged to extend pretty widely the
field of operations, train the dogs just
to mark with their paws the- place
where truffles are to be found.
Tho Hospitable Poles.
The Poles are extraordinarily hospit
able. They entertain without grudge.
At every table in the large houses some
extra places are laid ready for unex
pected guests as they say, "for tho
traveler that comes over the sea." It
is possible in Poland' to go uninvited
to visit your friend, taking your chil
dren, yonr servants and horses, and to
stay five or six weeks without receiving
any hint to go. The Poles are fond of
gayety, of amusement and of society.
They love pleasure in all its bright and
charming forms. The country h6uses
are constantly full of visitors, and in
the winter there is often the " Kulig,"
a gathering which increases as it goes
from house to house. It is taken from
a peasant custom, and the nobles, when
they get up a "Kulig," wear the peas
ant costumes, very beautifully made,
They go over the snow in sledges from
house to house, dancing for two or
three days at one and then going on to
another, taking the people of the house
which they leave with them. At last,
there are perhaps twenty sledges all
full of people, dressed in bright colors,
and singing the songs of the " Kulig."
At very house they dance the charac
teristic dances of the occasion the
Krakomiak, the Mazur and the Oberek.
The first is a very pretty and peculiar
dance,in which the partners continu
ally turn away from each other and
then come face to face ; the Mazur is
somethiHg like the quadrille, though it
is by no means the same ; the Oberek
resembles a waltz danced the reverse
way and with a very pretty and charac
teristic figure, in which the man kneels
on one knee and kisses his partner's
hand. These are all most charming
and pretty, and tho Poles dance with
enthusiasm as well as grace. They
have many national customs and cere
monies which are occasions for dancing
and pleasure. Then, in the autumn
and winter, there is bear-hunting. In
this way, with these varied amuse
ments, the time passes in the country
houses, and visitors- will stay six
weeks or perhaps six months. Temple

this will convey to many of those you

send a present lor the bride, and in
consequence of this, presents ate made
on the part of persons who can ill
afford, from a financial standpoint, to

channel and think, "1 must either do

Smoking on a street car is very
abominable, because it is an evidence
of ill-brexling for persons to smoke in
the presence of ladies. But tho tooth
pick mania is a habit that prevails
quite extensively, espechdly on street
cars, and it is a strong evidence that
there is a lack of training and manners
clore by when you observe persons
picking their teeth in tho company of
others, unaided by a kerchief or napkin.
iSDine persons keep the pick in their
mouths, to Rive the appearance, 'Tve
just lunched," and yet they have not
always done so just lunched. Others
wear the pick to give the appearance of
"the buffer," but the man who gets
right down to digging in his mouth in
public and then sucks his teeth is a
ferocious social beast.

Such conduct as is nightly witnessed
on the Avenue and Seventh street must

the conductor will not protect passen

CONKL1NG IN WASHINGTON.
Mew York Sun: Senator Conkling
was in town during the past week to
argue a case before tho Supreme Court.
Although he was within the very
shadow of the Senae Chamber when
in the Supreme Court room he did not
once enter tho chamber nor has ho ever
crossed the threshold since he resigned
h s seat. Mr. Conkling has more friends
in Washington than a great many per
sons who seek popularity with greater
industry. Louisville, (Ky.,) Post. 9
Indeed you arc right. Uere, Mr.
Conkling is popular, and he is a favor
ite, not only with many of the higher
official people, but with the lowly, from
the hod-carrier on up stairs. There are
a score of under people in this town,
who, when they felt the strong unfeel

time serving the government boss, al

Far be it from a fact that those per
sons on the Moor of Congress who make
the greatest noise, or who have the
largest say in the Record, are the most
serviceable to'their constituency. The

members who do not belong to the

can verify how much real hard work

Mr. Lvnch and General Smalls each
have department work, alone, enough
to keep them busy fully more than
two-thirds of the time that a member

of thinking that a Congressman must
attend to every little minor matter of
detail from legitimate official depart
ment business .to ascertaining price
lists in stores, real estate, furnished
rooms, the hotel prices, and a thousand

Annie Pleasants, one of the sweetest
girls in all Washington. If we under
took to say who was there the least
would make a .column. Suffice. is to
sav that a score of earnest friends
were on hand to throw a shoe, and j
wish Mr. and Mrs. M. all the happi
ness, prosperity and future additions,
such as can only be extended by
genuine and loyal friends.
The President, so it seems, has not
seen lit to nominate a colored man for
District Commissioner. Mr. Milton
M. IIollafTd, wno was a candidate for
the position had an endorsement,
stronger perhaps, than any one of 'im
race ever taken to tho "White House.
Mr. Holland was a soldier of distinc
tion during the war, being one of the
few in number that distinguished
themselves ori the field of glory; and
drew out of the President a medal of
honor as well as one front Congress,
for heroic conduct and distinguished
gallanteV. Notwithstanding that the
President has not thtts far seen fit to
recognize a colored man
reign at the White House we do not
despond; we aTe" riot ready to give
up the hope we have in ii mrfn, who,
up the noj
when it was very dark and dangerous
was then our friend. Time, however,
will settle the matter as to-whether or
not we are to be ignored and entirely
forgotten until we are again wanted.
But there is no rubbing it out, things
sometimes, just now, do look as if the
leaders of the party were about to for
get their "faith fill allies."
If it turns out to be true that the
nevt Democratic House of represen
tatives will appoint several colored
men to the paying, reputable, recognized
and honorable position that rumor
alleges thev will do, then the rail is
sulit : for bear it In mind that colored
men are more than , tired of promises,
made to the head and broke to the
Very tired, indeed, are they of' such
promises as are made just before their
valuable services are needed at the
polls. "We dont want so much patting
on the back, and cant, political, bibi
logieal psalm singing orthodox, aboli
tion, anti-slavery balderdash. What is
wanted is something substantial,
something in recognition of the voting
power, something tlfht is influential,
profitable and honorable from the
hands of the party that Ave so mater
cally assist to power. The time is
yery close at hand for colored men to
begin to do just as the Irish and German-Americans
do, put their votes
where they will do the most good. In
the language of a member of the Vir
ginia House of Delegates, "We cannot
live on herrings and past recollections."
There is nothing that the Republican
managers excell so well in, as they do
in making promises to colored men
before tho day of election and then
breaking faith afterwards. It may be
that colored citizens will be compelled
to break the color line by a Re-Adjuster
movement, or a coalition with
some other managers than Republicans.
There is no doubt but what this
Congress will pass the bill to place
Gen. Smalls; of South Carolina, on the
navv retired list. Several leading
Democrats have signified their inten
tion to vote for it. The bill, when it
comes up, will be fought by the 1
street, army and navy circle, the same
crowd that have sworn no negro shall
ever graduate from Annapolis, if we
can help it. The I street aristocrats ( ?),
we should say "shoddys," are the kind
that sucked the government during the
war, and now run the navy and army
socially, by which means they keep
their relatives and friends and pets in
soft places, and thus set up a class
business which operates in favor of
the chosen few, and against any and
all who are not admitted to the mvstic
circle. What is the reason that some
of our Congressmen, especially those
who begin life as poor boys and worked
their way up stop by step, do not open
fire on this army and navy rjng is a
wonder. The old adage holds good,
possibly, "The nearest way to a man's
heart is down his throat ;" and this is
the method employed by the riabobs of
the army and navy social ring Avhen
they learn that a member is about to
open upon them.
