-The -'pneumatic tube" under Broadway ls
causing trouble. Thc street above it has sunk
from six to nine inches, and there is some discus?
sion upon the subject or closing the street to
travel until thc matter can be investigated, as
danger to human lire is apprehended. Hie
Mayor or New York has attempted to have an ex?
amination made, but thc agent sent by him ror
the purpose was repulsed. Thc work goc3 on
still, and the company ls apparently determined
to defy interference. At any rate no person au?
thorized by the city government is allowed to
visit the work, but the Mayor ls aroused on thc
subject, i id declares his intention to prevent thc
prosecution of the labor unless it shall be proved
not to endanger life and property.
-The English iron-clad frigate Monarch, with
the remains of George Peabody on board, is under
orders to make her voyage under hair steam,
when the wind ls unfavorable, and under sail
alone when the wind ls propitious. This is done
because her coal-bunkers will only hold enough
fuel ror six days' steaming. The United States
corvette Plymouth will keep in sight or the
Monarch as eonvoy during thc entire voyage, and
the runeral fleet Is expected to arrive at Portland
about thc 15th Instant, where lt will be joined by
the iron-clads Mlantonomah and Terror, rrom
New York and Boston. As soon as the Monarch
ls signalled off Portland our iron clads will fire a
funeral salute from their colossal fifteen-inch
guns, which will be answered from the Monarch
-Mrs. Irwin, a sister ol Mrs. Stonewall Jackson,
ha3 secured a patent ror an Improvement lu the
construction or houses which, lt ls claimed, will
create a new era in architecture. Mrs. Irwin
proposes six-walled or hexagonal apartments,
which are not only much handsomer, but really
cheaper thau the quadrangular form. A wall of
eighty reel built lu Hie hexagonal Torni includes a
third more space than thc same length or wall
built in thc square rona; and as these hexagonal
rooms fit into each other without loss or space,
thc gaiu in thc whole building is very great. The
patentee also claims that this mode or building
gives a greater degree or strength than any other,
and that this mode of building, lu thc hands or a
good architect, ls capable of assuming greater
artistic beauty than the square or quadrangular
form. Thc octagonal building attracted a good
deal of attention some years ago, but the hexago?
nal ls claimed to be something entirely new.
The preacher of tho sensational school
must he. like Yorick, "a feUow of inllnitc lan?
gey." He must koop himself well acquainted
witli thc events of tho time?. Ho must
yield us readily to thc changeful public humor
.as thc chnmclion to the color of the object
on which it chances to crawl. He must
possess the gift of sudden surprises, which
ensures the success of the author and actor,
upon quite a different stage. And above all,
he must keep in assiduous exercise a power
of iuvention equal to that of a novelist, a
Congressman, a Radical historian, or the
editor of Harper's Weekly.
In all bliese particulars Mr. Beecher is
richly gifted. His discourses are quite as
novel and entertaining in their way as his
story about Norwood. He can find any fact to
suit any subject, andean draw any subject
from any text within the lids of the Bible.
Thus, for example, on the day after Christ?
mas he delivered a pulpit euloginm upon the
conduct of thc United Stales Government
during the late war. This served to intro?
duce u glowing tribute to Ute memory of
Mr. Stanton, the most irascible and despotic
of public ministers. Aud Mr. Beecher took
for his text the fifth chapter of Matthew's
gospel and the fifth verse: "Blessed are the
meek, for they shall inherit the earth."
He claimed that the unselfishness of thc
War Secretary, and the virtue and endurance
of the American people, entit'e them to the
benediction pronounced by thc great teach?
er. The ono would rank with the greatest
men of his time; thc other would overspread
the Coutinent, if not the whole earth.
We shall have to revise our dictionaries.
This word meek has been strangely misun?
derstood. At present it is a little odd to
say: Mr. Beecher meekly armed the roughs
of Brooklyn, and dispatched them with
Christian philippics and Sharpe's rifles to
shoot some of their fellow-countrymen in
Kansa3. Mr. Stanton meekly imprisoned
hundreds of civilians in tho bastiles of the
government; meekly denied medicine to the
dying prisoners in Andersonville; meekly
urged on thc execution of the innocent Mrs.
Surratt, and meekly blustered and bullied for
years at the war-office-being touched with
tito gracious spirit of the beatitudes. And
'.The American people" meekly overwhelm?
ed thc seceding South in fire and blood, and ?
piously carried oil'ship-loads of rebel furni?
ture, wagon loads of rebel silver, and bush- :
els upon bushels of rebel watches and rings .
and brooches-in obedience to the require?
ments of the Sermon on the Mount, which
blesses them because they are meek, and '
freely gives them the inheritance of the
We beg Mr. Beecher's pardon for saj ing
that these villainously virtuous assumptions 1
remind us of a character of 6ome notoriety 1
in fiction, by name Uriah Heep. The con?
fession made by this worthy in jail is Mr.
Beecher's sermon in brief: "You knew mc ,
"wheu, in spite of my follies I wa3 'umblc
"among them that was proud, and meek
"among them that was violent." The paral?
lel is so exact, that one might almost think .
that Uriah had escaped from the prison
at Pentonville, clear-starched, and found his
way into the pulpit of the Plymouth Church.
Not a Bad Idea.
The German Workingmcn's Union, of New >
York, an association composed of delegates
representing twenty-two distinct 'Trades' 1
Unions, is acquiring a good name for prac?
ticability. Although but a short time in ex?
istence, the association has already inaugu
ted several important measures, among '
others, that of the erection of a Trades' 1
Union hall; tho assistiug in thc good work
of erecting the German Hospital, the board
of directors of which is to contain a Trades'
Union representative; and thc getting up of .
a course of free lectures in German, design?
ed to instruct workingmen in thc great :
principles of thc labor problem now in the
course of solution. The New York Star hu3
more than once urged upon the working?
men of that city the importance of a course i
of lectures designed for workingmen, but,
beyond an occasional lecture, nothing bas
as yet been dono by the English speaking j
Unions, and the inauguration of thc move?
ment has been left with thc German Unions.
The German Workingmtn's Union seldom ?
enters upou a movement of this character I
without carrying it through to u practical '
issue, and it is therefore safe to predict that
the proposed course of lectures will have a
speedy inauguration. We understand that
it is the intention of the Union to secure the
services of tba most enlightened German
Trades' advocates in thc country, who will
select for the theme of their dis.ourses topics
now uppermost in thc minds of tho working
masses. A committee of nine has been ap?
pointed to take charge of thc matter, and it
is probable that thc first locturo of the course
will be given some time in February.
Thc people of the South especially need
instruction upon Free Trade, Trades'
Unions, co-operative and industrial copart?
nership*. These are lite great question? of
the day, and wc wish that speakers could be
found to explain and discuss them in this
State for the benefit of all classes of the
Tbe Catspaivs of Spain.
There are some circumstances connected
with thc seizure of thc steamship "Anna,"
the so-called Cuban privateer, to whicli we
desire to call attention.
The United States Marshal took posses?
sion of the "Anna" on Wednesday, and the
next day began an examination of tho ship,
which might have been completed in four
hours, and was to be completed by this morn?
We are informed that when Captain Som?
ers visited the "Anna" yesterday, he found
that a mun, who appeared to be a Spaniard,
was engaged in searching that vessel. Tho
United States Marshal explained that this
man was his expert, but the mate of the
'.Anna" i-ave information that the man went
down to the ship shortly ufter r> consultation
bud been hud between thc Spanish Consul
ami the United States Marshal. When ques?
tioned closely by Captain Somers, thc man
admitted that "be was a Spaniard, and was
"sent down to thc vessel by the Spanish Con?
bul." This statement was made in thc pre?
sence of several witnesses.
From this il is clear enough that the Span?
ish authorities have been working to gain
time, or to delay the "Anna" until they can
have a trap set for her henoiit. One oilier
fact is very striking, it is that a Spaniard,
an agent or spy of (he Spanish Consul, is
doing thc work which Hie United States
Marshal ought to bo able to do for himself
In American waters, under Hie American
Hag. a Spaniard is allowed to pry and peer
into the cabins and lockers of an American
vessel. This may be diplomatic, but it is
hardly decent. We have fallen low enough,
but it was hoped that tho ofllcers of thc Uni?
ted States would not allow themselves, or bt
allowed, to become tho catspaws of Spain.
We have rere!ved Iront thc Leonard Scott

number, was set on foot as a rival to the Edi

ry department. 3. The Westminster Revicxc
lias just closed its 92d volume. In point
literary ability this Review is fast rising to
level with its competitors. If. is thc advocate
of political and religious liberalism. 4. The
North British Review, now in ito 51st volutu
occupies a very high position in periodical
literature. Passing beyond thc narrow formal
ism of schools and parties, it appeals to a wider
range of sympathies and a higher Integrl
ty ol' conviction. S. Dlarkwood's Edinburgh
Magazine was commonced 52 years ago
Equaling the quarterlies in ils literary and

enliven its pages.
