a tendency among thoughtful peo

a truth beyond all contradiction,
that no race of people or cla-s o

Congress got finally nettled down to
work ou Monday of last vek. The
j and option bill was brought up in the
btnate, ami seems likely to be tlio
occasion of a. more determined struggle
than last st-SMou. Many petitions, both
for and against the bill, were presented.
Mr. Hoar, from the Judiciary Commit
tee presented a bill providing penalties
against peisons, not a ship's crew, who
aid or encourage riot ou American

Many memorials and bills were pre

lution to investigate charges that the
postal authorities exclude newspapers
from the privileges of the mails without
previous notice to publishers, and of
other irregular pi actices. Several bills
have been introduced upon the currency
question, and that subject will come up
for early action, and will probably be
the most exciting subject of discussion
during the sessiou. A comprehensive
bill to enable national banks to increase
t: eir circulation and to suspend further
pin chases of silver was introduced by
Representative Andrews of Mass.

Five beautiful odalisques, or female
slaves were recently presented by the
Khedive of Egypt to the Sultan of Tur

The odalisques appear to have had a
captivating influence on the Sultan, whe
p.iid so much attention as to excite the
jealousy of the other women. The five
beautiful slaves were found murdered in
their beds a few d-iys ago, having fallen
victims to poison. The Sultan was fu
rious, and three eunuchs and a favorite
co .cubine are under arrest, and will
