-A fashion correpondent writes: "This sea

Tho new are inter wrought with jet and pearl

Straw may be braided ever so elaborately, but
it'dhould not be worked np with materials for
which it has no sympathy-of which it has no
suggestion. Ita freshness and breezeness
souvenir of the fields wherein it grew-should
-be allowed to assert itself, instead of being
-smothered by the vulgar fripperies of the
-New York thieves have in training a num?
ber of dogs for summer operations. They are
taught by repeated endeavors to rush into t?
room and seize from a counter a parcel and
quickly bring it to his master. Their counter
is made so as to resemble those in banks, and
the parcel is covered with yellow paper, and
trade to look like the packages of bank notes,
that are exchanged from one bank to another.
Tba design is to take or send by a confederate
one of these dogs to the door of a bank or
broker's office, where a parcel or package of
bank notes is seen to be lying on the conuter,
and send him in. The trained animal darts in
and seizes the valuables in his mouth, and
rushes ont to the place where he expects to
find his master.
-The real reason why the President signed
the Tennre-of-ofiice bill is generally under?
stood to be that ID the presence of Congress
he behoves himself powerless. He admitted,
jj n so many words, on Saturday last, that he
was to blame himself for the non-snccoss of
"fha foll repeal, which he would greatly bavo
preferred. He cosiders that when he gave in
to Messrs. Trumbull, Edmunds and Conkling,
of the Senate Judiciary Committee^ by agree?
ing to their amendments, tbat then repeal was
1 osl from that moment. The President irealy
?nd frankly admits this to have been a mistake.
Now that the thing is signed, tho anomaly is
presented of two constmotions being placed on
this act-one by those compelled to accept it,
and the other by those friondly to its tcrm.3.
-The moat wonderful velocipede exploit on
record is thus described in the Jacks JO ville,
DI., Journal: "On Saiurday evening there
was quite a largo number gathered in Profes?
sor Grover's velocipede hall to witness tho
proficiency and skill of the professor's pupils
on the wooden horse. Ic appears that a few of
the professor's most advanced scholars have
been practicing on an inclined plane, which
has heretofore been placed on the south side
of the room, but in cleaning the hall in the af?
ternoon the decline part had been removed,
and the i nc Uno part was moved close to the
east side of the hall^so that the highest part
rested on a window-sill, the window having
been removed in the afternoon. Several of the
new beginners had been showing their skill in
riding round the room, and when Mr. Dunlap
came into tbe hall he was called upon to ride,
and immediately complied, mounted the ma?
chine, and away he went at lightning speed
around the hail. As soon as be had got
(he velocipede np to fall speed, ho went
straight for the incline plano, (all who were
posted in the movement of the plane supposed
that Mr. Dunlap knew of the change, and was
only trying 'some new trick,' but, as the se?
quel shows, he was entirely ignorant of the
change,) np he went like a bird, and did not
disoover bis mistake until it was too late.
Away he went, through the window, like a
flash, and disappeared 1 . stood spell-bound
for a second, and then rushed to the windows,
expecting to see his mangled body on the
ground below. But he waa not 'born to die,
in that way, for the speed at which ho was
goinT carried him acioss an alley ten feet r ide,
aud he alighted 'Tight side up" on Gaiter,
Beesley & Co.'s drug storo, a two-Btory build?
ing with a very steep roof; down th<?r roof
and over the edge he wont, sailing on to tLe
roof of Ayer'8 bank, whore he vnm.&ge^ to fall
offbi9 machine in time to save irn-s^f from
going over to the ground. As soon av :>o??ble
he sprang to his feet, swung his hat, ...A -ave
throe cheers, which were responded to with a
will by tho excited crowd, which filled all the
windows of thc ball, and had watched his de?
scent with silent horror. Dr. Dunlap thinks
ho is ontitled to tho champion modal as the
most daring velocipede rider in this section of
SATURDAY MORNING, APRIL 10, 1869.
Kc present at i ve Hogc.
Mr. S. L. H?ge, Radical, who was not
elected to Congress from the Third South
Carolina District, has been admitted to a
seat in the House of Representatives, and
Mr. J. P. Reed, Democrat, who was elec?
ted, has had his trouble for his pains.
The manoeuvres by which H?ge obtained
his seat were characteristically ingenious.
Accidentally, and to his own surprise, elected
Justice of the Supreme Court of this State,
he so hid his native sagacity and legal
lore, so disguised his profound knowledge
under a mask of twioe-sixteen-year-old
simplicity, that the benighted Democrats
looked upon him as a mere puppet and the
wily Radicals regarded him as a fool. So
deftly did he play bis part that the Radical
leaders determined to thrust him from the
bench and set up in his stead any one who
was less a dummy though more a knave.
A proper place for H?ge seemed to be the
United States House of Representatives,
where he oonld have excellent opportuni?
ties of indulging his passion for perquisites,
and where, if he did choose to act the har?
lequin, he could have plenty of excellent
company. But H?ge had been routed in
the fight for election in the Third District,
and his opponent, Mr. Reed, had been
eleoted by a thumping majority. There
was no overcoming this fact. Even the
Prince of Liars could not give evidence
enough to overcome 3008 votes, even at the
rate of a lie to tho vote. So nothing re?
mained but to take advantage of the fact
that Mr. Reed was disqualified by the Four?
teenth Constitutional Amendment, and to
exclude him from the contest before the
case was tried. This was dene promptly,
a resolution being passed forbidding the
consideration of the olaims of any person
who was ineligible to hold office and whose
disabilities had not been removed. H?ge
wat? at once deolared to have a prima facie
right to his seat, and on Thursday was reg?
The point of this lies in the application.
H?ge wt .s squarely and fairly defeated by
Mr. Reed; but Mr. Recd v as barred out
and Mr. H?ge takes his seat. The number
of votes had nothing to do with it. Mr.
Reed received nearly 12,000 votes, and ir
H?ge had received but 5 votes he would
still have been elected. This is the Con?
gressional game of "Heads I win, tails
"you lose." It is a monstrous tyranny. It
deprives the people of their constitutional
rightf. and makes an eleotion a foregone
conclusion-a mockery, a delusion and a
However, H?ge has taken his seat, and
will sit amicably by the side of Whittemore
and Bowen until there can be admitted to
complete the quartette ?. S. S. Wallace,
who was thrashed as soundly in the Fourth
District by Colonel Simpson, as H?ge was
in the Third by Mr. Reed. Then will the
four rejoioe and be exceeding glad, thank?
ing the blessed stars whioh have given them
the pockets of thirty-eight millions of peo?
ple to pick, and three hundred thousand
white people in Sooth Carolina to abuse
Thc Nevr J a ry Law.
It seems that the palladium of oar liber?
ties-the trial by jury-will henceforth,
like charity, cover a multitude of sins; not
so much sins of malice and revenge as of
ignorance and inexperience.
The act to reg?late the drawing of juries,
passed September 28, 1868, requires the
Seleotmen of every town, onoe in every
year, te prepare a list of such inhabitants
of the town as they think well qualified to
serve as jurors, "being persons of good
"moral character, of sound judgment and
"free from all legal exceptions." This list
(Seotion 5) is to be posted up in two public
places ten days before it is submitted for
revision and acceptance, "and shall then
"be laid before any regularly called town
"meeting, and the town meeting may alter
"it by adding the name of any person lia
"ble to serve, or striking any names there
"from." To this section, at the scs3ion of
the Legislature just closed, the following
proviso was added : "Provided, always, that
"the number of white voters thereon shall
"bear to the number of names of colored
"voters, as near as may be, thc same pro?
portion as the whole number of white
"voters bears to the whole number of col
"ored voters in the township, city or coun
"ty, '?8 the case may be."
Th? effect of this proviso in Charleston
judicial county (Charleston and Berkeley)
will be to make the list contain three times
as many negroes as white men, the registra?
tion of March, 18C8, being 13,683 colored
voters and 4602 white voters. But the Se?
lectmen are directed to select persons "of
"good moral oharacter, of sound judgment,"
and as the proportion is only "as near as
"may be," it might happen that the list,
when completed, would contain less than
eight blacks out of every dozen persons.
And, in any case, the jurors are drawn
from the list by lot, and, although the
chances are in favor of colored names being
drawn in the ratio of their numerical supe?
riority, it might occur that all whites or all
negroes, or half of each, would bo drawn.
In oivil cases, however, there is a loop?
hole which will enable suitors to esoape a
trial by jury. The third seotion of the
"Act to regulate the practice of the Circuit
"Coarta in certain oases," is as follows :
"Issues of faot in oivil cases, in any Cir
"cuit Court, may be tried and determined
"by the court without the intervention of
"a jury, whenever the parties or their at
.Uorucys of record file their consent, in
"writitg, with the Clerk of the Court,
"waiving a jury." This enables the par?
ties in all civil cases to avoid the jury.
And, in regard to criminal cases, it must be
remembered that if the jury consists of eight
colored jurymen against four white jury?
men, there is every probability that of the
persons to be tried criminally at least three
fourths will be black.

NEW YORK. November 3? 18(13. j
To tile People of tile Southern Stn tes t
WHEN THE T?RE MEDICINAL RESTORATIVE,
now 60 widely kno?n as WOLFE'S SCHIEDAM
SCHNAPPS, was in rod aced iuto the world under
thc endorsement of four thousand leading member?
of the medical profession some twenty years SRO, tts
proprietor was well aware that it could not wholly
escape the penalty attached to all new and useful
preparations. He, therefore, endeavored to invest ii
with strongest possible safeguard ' against counter?
feiters, and to render all attempts to pirate it diffi?
cult and dangerous. It was submitted to distin?
guished chemists for analysis, and pronounced by
them the purest spirit ever manufactured. Its puri?
ty and properties having been thus ascertained, sam?
ples of the article were forwarded to ten thousand
physicians, including all the leading practitioner? in
tbe United States, for purpose? of experiment. A
circular, requesting a trial of the preparation and a
report of tbe result, accompanied each specimen.
Pour thousand of the most eminent medical men in
the Union promptly responded. Their opinions of
tho article were unanimously favorable. Such
preparation, they ?-aid, had lone been wonted by
the profession, as DO reliance could be placed on tbe
ordinary liquors of commerce, all of which were
more .r less adulterated, and therefore unfit for
media., purposes. The peculiar excellence and
strength of the oi of juniper, which formed one of
the principal ingredients of the Schnapps, together
with an unalloyed character of the alcoholic ele?
ment, give it. in the estimation of the faculty, a
marked superiority over every other diffusive stimu?
lant as a diuretic, tonic and restorative.
These satisfactory credentials from professional
men of the highest rank were published in a con?
densed form, and enclosed with each bottle of the
Schnapps, os one of the guarantee? of its genuine?
ness. Other precautions against fraud were Uso
adopted ; a patent was obtained for the article, the
label was copyrighted, a Jae simile ot the proprielor*s
autograph signature was attached to each label and
cover, his name and that of the preparation were em?
bossed on tbe bottles, and the corks were sealed with
his private seal. No article had over been Bold in
this country under the namo of Schnapps prior to
the introduction of Wolfe's Schiedam Aromatic
Schnapps, In 1851; and the label was deposited, as
his trade mark, in the United States District Court
for thc Southern District of New York during that
It might be supposed by persons unacquainted
with tbe daring character of tbe pirates who prey
upon the reputation of honorable merchants by vend?
ing deleterious trash under their name, that the pro?
tections so carefully thrown around these Schnapps
would have precluded tbe introductions and sale of
counterfeits. They seem, bowover, only to have
stimulated the rapacity of impostor-. The trade
mark of th: proprietor hos been stolen; the Indorse?
ment which his Schiedam Aromatic Schnapps alone
received from Hie medical profcsaioD has been
claimed by mendacious humbugs; his labels and
bottles have been Imitated, his advertisements para?
phrased, his circulars copied, and worse than ali,
dishonorable retailers, after disposing of tbe genuino
contents of his bottles, have filled them up with
common gin, the most deleterious of all liquors, and
thus mode his name and bond a cover for poison.
The public, thc medical profession and tho sick,
for whom the Schiedam Aromatic Schnapps is pre?
scribed as a remedy, are equally interested with the
proprietor In the doted iou and suppression of those
nefarious pt ac tices. The genuine article, manufac?
tured at the establishment ol' the undersigned in
chicdam, Holland, is distilled from a barley of tho
finest quality, und flavored with au osscntial extract
of the berry of tho Italian jumper, ol unequalled pu?
rity. By a process unknown in the preparation ot
any other liquor, it is (recd from every acrimonious
and corrosive clement.
Complaints have been received from the leading
physicians and families in the Southern States of
the sale of cheap imitations of the Schiedam Aro?
matic Schnapps in those markets; and travellers,
who are in thc habit of using it as an Antidoto to the
baneful influence of unwholesome river water, tes?
tify that cheap gin, put up in Schiedam bottles, ls
frequently palmed off upon the unwary. Tho
agents ot tbe undersigned have been requosteu to
institute inquiries on thc subject, and to forward to
him the names of such parties as they may ascer?
tain to be engaged in the atrocious system of decep?
tion. In concludion, the undersigned would say that
be has produced, from under tho hands of the most
distinguished men cf science In America, proofs un?
answerable of tbe purity and medicinal excel?
lence of the Schiedam Aromado Schnapps ; that
he has oxpended many thousand dollars in sur?
rounding it with guarantees and safeguards, which
he designed should protect the public and himself
against fraudulent imitations; that he has shown lt
to be tho only liquor in tho world that can be uni?
formly depended upon as unadulterated; that he has
challenged investigation, analysis, comparison and
experiment in all Its forms; and from every ordeal
the preparation which bears his name, seal and trade
mark, has como off triumphant. He, therefore, feels
it a duty he owes to his icllow-citizens generally, to
the medical profession and the sick, to denounce
and expose the charlatans who counterfeit these evi?
dencies of identity, and he calls upon the prose and
the public to old him in his efforts to remedy so great
The following letters and certl?catea from tho
leading physicians and chemists of this city will
prove to the reader that all goodB sold by the under
signe 1 are all tbat they are rcpre' en ted to be.
I feel bound to say, that I regard your Schnapps
as being in every respect pre-eminently pure, and
deserving ot medical patronage. At al! events, lt is
the purest possible article of Holland Oin, hereto?
fore unobtainable, and us such may be safely pn
scribed by physicians.

In this Community,
THIS ASSOCIATION WAS ORGANIZED ON THE
22d of June last, OD y nine months ago, and has al?
ready secured au annual revenue from premiums on
existing policies of nearly $600,000 (Five Hun?
dred Thousand Dollars). Its new business for the
month of December was $72,393 36, insuring the
amount of $1,107,000. Iis new business for the
month of January wa3 $30,524 71, insuring the
amount of $1,049,000.
One month's business being greater than that done
by tho largest and wealthiest Life Insurance Compa?
nies in the United Slates during the entire first
year of their existence.
.The association was first started by the most
wealthy and influential citizens of St. Louis, for
thc purpose of changing the current of Lifo Insur?
ance and Life Insurance capital from the East to
the West and Sou'h, and as its plan is liberal and
just to every section, State and district, tho wealthy
men of the West and Sou h generally are insuring
their lives hi it, to thc exclusion ot' other companies.
This is shown by the fact tbat the policies Issued
during the mon:hs of Dccembar aud January are of
an uv? range amount of $7 3JS 42, drawing an aver?
age annual premium of $418 20.
The largest average attained by any other compa?
ny in the United Stares Is about $40 0 to each poli?
cy, while the average size of all policies existing in
this country ls only about $2500.
These facts speak tor themselves.
