A Sign of thc Times.
[From the New York Express, Dem.]
We call this meeting a sign ol the times,
it is a very marked one, but lt ls hardly i

lng with, controlled by nor to any extent
Mci pated In by some three millions of An

as patriotic men, they respect, sympat
with, mose heartily endorse and hope tc
victorious in the end.
The Five Pointa,
[from the Boston Post, Democrat.]
It now looks more favorable than ever 1
nomination al Cincinnati upon a platform i
taiaing the five essential points ot lib?rai
form-the constitution, revenue reform, JJ
eral amnesty, civil service reform and li
self-government. On sucha platform, v
judiciously chosen candidates, there it
strong hope of terminating ihe present
ploranle and dangerous condition of fbi
within the brief term of another year.

?[Frc m the N. T. Commercial Advertiser, Adn
The meeting at Cooper Institute was Is
-and active, but lt would be folly to claim l
it was composed of those who sympatl
with the Liberal movement. In this c
there was a coalition of strange and inc*
pa ti ble elements, sure to come to open hos
ty. and the adroit manner in which the Dei
era ts abetted the movement and kent in
background is worthy of their excellent re
tat ion of capacity for intrigue.

Ile ?nljr Effect.
[From the Ohsclnnati Gazette, Adm'n.I
The only effect of the Cincinnati Conven tlc
If it shall have any effect at all, will be to p
the Democrats, with their anti-war reooi
with their opposition to the amendments, wi
their hatred of human liberty, with their ba
ner, upon which will- be inscribed, "To t

their well known objections to the natioc

A Desperate Game.
[From the New York Times, Ad mm .j
Under the caption of "Tho Liberal Republl
cant and Copperhead Meeting," the Time
"The meeting in favor of the Cinclnnat
Convention last night was of a piece with th
elaborate political manoeuvring which ha
preceded it The policy ot the leaders bel nj
to alienate Republicans from the Republlcai
party, nothing was done or said that was con
aldered inconsistent with that policy. Th?
political fortunes of these men are staked or
that die. They must break up the Republlcai
party, or go out of sight In defeat, bumtllatior
and disappointment. That Is the prime con
.dillon lo obtaining the Democratic support
without which they are lost. Considered witt
reference to this end, the meeting last eve?
ning waa a modified success."
An Auspicious Beginning.
[From the New York Tribune, Rep.]
Responses to the Cincinnati call multiply oi
all hands. But we reckon this ihe most sub
fitantlal Impettis the good work has yet re?
ceived-the most auspicious beginning ant
great political campaign has had for many a
year. It means mat the Cincinnati Conven?
tion ls to bea succf ss alike in numoers, rep?
resentative character and generous purpose.
Let lt be equally wise, and lt will name the
next President of the United States. And
now, fru-nd s In New York and every State !
to work ! Ot numbers, resolve, enthusiasm,
we have enough. But we confront a compact
band of office-holders, with their office-seeking
allies and dependents, holding in their grasp
the splendid organization of a noble party,
whose name has been for a dozen years the
.unfailing watchword of victory. They were
-already alarmed; last night will arouse them
to their most desperate efforts. We must or?
ganize, and at once. The campaign ls to be
.aggressive- attack Is the key of the situation.
>' The Aggressiv? Reformers.
[From the New York Would! Dem.]
There Is now strong reason to oelleVe that
the Cincinnati COD ve ni ion will be a success,
and that lt will hold In its hands the destiny
of the republic-for the ensuing four years. It
wiri not be a mere advisory bodv intended to
act upon and Influence toe Grant Convention
at Philadelphia; but a thoroughly hostile body,
meeting io organize a canvass .which will
?weep away the prevailing nepotism of cor?
ruption, re-establish kindly relations between
all the Si aies, reform the civil service, check
centralization, and restore the right of local
self-government. It ls- now cerium lhat the
Cincinnati Convention will nominate a ticket,
and unie-s some great blunder is perpetrated
in the selection ot candidates, that ticket will
unite, in a dose, compact phalanx, all the ele?
ments of opposition. If ibis ureat and spirited
meeting ls a foretaste of Cincinnati, the Dem?
ocratic pait.v cati weil afford to walt and
. watch. It will put no obstructions in the way of
a movement which scuts to stand on so
strong a basis. 'But tc must nevertheless re?
serve Its Anal judgment until the present
hopeful anticipations shall ripen, by the pro?
gress of events, into established facts.
The Two Great Speeches.
[From the New York World, l em.]
Mr. Trumbull was strong, pertinent and
courageous; but, excellent as his speech was,
we iuoiine to think that Mr. Schurz's was the
happier effort of ihe iwo. In polut of intre?
pidity, the ureat quality ol all, we can per?
ceive no difference; but Mr. Schurz lays a
stronger, or at least a more skilful, band on
the moral convictions and sensibilities ol ihe
people. Both speeches were admirable, and
many Democrats will perhaps esteem Mr.
. Trumbull's th? better ofthe two, as contain
JUfe leas from which they would be inclined
to dissent. But lt must be considered that
thia was a Republican meeting, in the Interest
of a movement In which only Republicans are
participants, and whose success depends on
Republican support. It was. therefore, with
great wl?dom that Mr. Schurz sought to ele?
vate lt above the level ol a mere political con?
test into that high moral region in which
honest men of ali parties can find common
Btanding ground. But it is perhaps invidious
to make any comparison between the two
speeches, when both were so bold, so pertl
nent, se seasonable and so truly excellent.
Baritina; their Slilps.
[From the Washington Union, Dem.]
Impulsion will be given to the convention
by the distinct committals of Senators Tram
bull and Fenton, who, while sympathizing
with and co-operating in all its objects, had
not, until now, placed themselves clearly
the side of Cincinnati. They have at last
burnt their ships, as Mr. Schurz and Mr. Tip?
ton did when they first separated and
threw away the scabbard. The silence of Mr.
Sumner at the New York meeting, where his
friends mustered in force and echoed, as
were, his notes of defiance, uttered with
much solemnity and decision a few short
months ago, has excited much comment. We
do not accept it in the sense that has been at
tributed to his recent reserve by a portion
the press of his own State, which has some
times claimed to speak by authority concern
lng his Intentions. Mr. Sumner has commit?
ed errors of judgment, and may repent them
but he is hardly capable of voluntary sell
abasement, or the snerender of that respect
which ls the life-current In every honorable
man. He may not go forward, as was expect
ed by the associates who followed In his first
footsteps, but he cannot go back without
worse than personal discredit. It Is too late
to retreat, even If be bad the inclination. The
dictator at the White House neither forgets
Tbe Two Sides.
[From the Richmond Dispatch.
The merits of the two sides are as wide
apart as can be, and ii the nation is not
blinded by prejudice and passion the Libeial
party will sweep the country at the e?eclions
It Is vitally Important that they should. This
New York meeting is the most Important
sign we have had of a revolution in public
sentiment. It has already exerted a power
tul Influence. It bas created much uneasl
nesB and agitation in Washington, and
for the first time the administration
and Its supporters feel that tbe founda
tlons are giving away beneatb them
Indeed, there is an hourly rising confi?
dence in the Cincinnati Convention. There
ls that sort of belief or fear that lt will name
the successful candidates that will almost cer?
tainly give It the victory. There ls always an
Immense party In the land which abhors being
in the minority. The moment that party finds
good cause to think that the Liberals will tri?
umph, lt will go over and Bwell the majority
on the Liberal Bide. " Everywhere, we believe,
the Democrats are disposed to give up tbe
question to the Cincinnati Convention. They
are ready to await Its action with the almost
settled conviction that it will name the men
for whom ? all In the opposition can vote lor.
The prospect grows rapidly brighter and more
THE LAST SENSATION.
Toe Mysterious Brunette Said to be the
Widow of the Hon. J. T. nason.
Another correspondent of the New York
World Insists that Mrs. Mason is the widow of
the Hon. John Y. Mason. He says:
Last evening I heard the following about
Mrs. Mason, and give it as gossip, for the
truth of which I cannot vouch. Mrs. Mason,
it ls said, claims to be the widow of the Mason
of Mason and Slidell notoriety. She claims to
have married bim in France. She was In
Washington during Mr. Johnson's administra?
tion, and being believed by many to have "In?
fluence" at tne White House-she herself
representing such to be the case-was often
employed lo transact business there. When
this little game was discovered ' it was
promptly broken up by the President's secre?
taries. Later still, she bas figured, though
not conspicuously, aa the friend and adviser
of a certain Cuban general. It Is probably in
this way that she learned that arms were to
be sold, and so made the attempt to sell them
to Mr. Wlard. She bas been in France, on a
visit of short duration, at some period during
the past three years. This ls all that current
gossip has to say Just now, but, as the commit?
tee expect to see Mrs. Mason on Monday and
question her, more may be expected. It
seems, however, scarcely possible that she can
claim to be the widow of either John Y Mason,
of Virginia, who was minister to France dur?
ing Mr. Pierce's administration, and after?
wards again sent there by tbe rebels, or of
Senator James Mason, also of Virginia, as each
of these gentlemen lett a widow, and these
Mrs. Masons, if now living, are very old ladles,
and not lo the least likely to be engaged In
the sale of arms.
TINKERING THE TARIFE.
The Protectionist Blind-Proposed Re?
duction of the Internal Kevenne Datles
-The VB'ree Breakfast Table.*'
- WASHINGTON. April 16.
The prepared bill by Representative Kelley,
and which was to-day ordered to be printed, is
entitled "An act for tbe further reduction of
taxation, and the- promoting of commerce,"
and ls designed to be offered as a substitute
to the tar i ff-ia nd tax bill reported to-day ?rom
the committee of ways and means. Mr.'
Maynard unites with Mr. Kelley in thia
measure, reversing the order of the com?
mittee of ways and means. Mr. Kelley's
bill gives the precedence to the Internal
revenue feature instead of the tariff feature.
It provides a uniform tax of sixteen cents a
pound on tobacco, and a consolidated tax of
sixty-five cents on spirits; but abolishes the
tax on sales, both on spirits and tobacco.
The changes proposed will, lt is said, enable
the treasury practically to disband the inter?
nal revenue service, so far as assessors, col?
lectors and assistants are concerned. It makes
provision for the maintenance ot the tobacco
bonded warehouses under euch regulations
as may be prescribed by the secretary
of the treasury, and abolishes about one-half
the stamps Included In schedule B. The tariff
section adds tea and coffee to the free list, to?
gether with other articles which enter Into
general consumption, but are not produced In
this country. It also adds the ten per cent,
reduction ot the Senate on iron and manufac?
tures thereof; on woollen, worsted and cotton
goods, and Borne other articles. This joint
measure makes a reduction of fifty millions of
dollars from the two sources of revenue, and
provides for the diminu? ion of the force of
the Internal revenue service to the extent of
one-half the Humber of employees and ex?

. LONDON, April 16.
Toe following statement gives only the au?
thority and foundation, so far as can be ascer?
tained, for the reported differences between
France and Germany, mention of which was
made In these dispatches yesterday:
The London Telegraph, of Monday, basing
an editorial article upon the assertions made
by Its own Paris and Berlin correspondents,
said : "We regret to learn that the fact of the
relations between France and Germany being
in a critical condition, as made known through
these columns, ls causing the greatest anxiety
to those by whom it is best appreciated. -It ls
only by the exercise.of discretion at Paris and
Berlin that grave complications may be
The statements of the correspondents upon
which the foregoing was predicated are, In
substance, that Germany distrusts the good
faith of France, and is displeased at the ex?
tent of the armament and military organiza?
tion which the Thiers Government is carrying
forward; and that Prince Bismarck is about to
enter a formal protest against the course
France is pursuing, in which protest be -will
declare the necessity for prompt and decisive
ac lion on the part of Germany, even to the
extent of reoccupying the departments of
France lately evacuated by the troops ot the
In addition to these slatements of its cor?
respondent, the Telegraph asserts editorially
that it knows on the highest authority that the
speech of Thiers, at the adjournment of the
French Assembly, created a grave Impression
Neither tbe letters nor editorials of any
other London newspapers give 'confirmation
or countenance to the assertions of the Tele?
graph, and while lt has been hinted tbat that
journal ls In someway In the service and in?
terest of the German Chancellor, the more
general impression ls that the whole story was
fabricated either as a sensation, or with the
design of aiding some speculative scheme.

ANIONELLI AT HOME.
An English correspondent who has been to
visit Antonelll thus describes the Cardinal:
He was in a tiny, comfortably-fitted study,
lighted only by a silver table lam pof the famil?
iar classic shape weil known by the Imitations
ot Pompeian examples to be seen lu every
Bhop window. The writing table, strewn with
papers, bad no other ornament than a lull
length image of the Virgin some eighteen
Inches high. On the wail, at the back ot the
Cardinal's writing chair, waa a small but ex?
cellently-painted copy In oils of Murillo's Im?
maculate Conception, the crowning glory of
the Louvre. The statesman's personal appear?
ance has been made well known by photo?
graphs. He ls slight ia figure, and his habit of
stooping makes him look shorter than he real?
ly ls. His complexion ls of that sallow tinge
generally seen in men of strong nerVius tem?
perament, while bis black eyes, tull of vivacity
and Ure, thick eyebrows, aquiline nose, and
broad mouth, are all Indica1 Ive of energy and
power. The Cardinal's rank was denoted only
by the very narrow scarlet red border in his
black robe, bis scarlet stockings, and small
scarlet Bkuil-cap. His manner is remarkably
cordial, and he has the habit ot laying bis baud
on the arm of the person addressed whenever
he grows epeciallv Interested in the eubjpct of
discussion. His Eminence talked wlib the ap?
pearance of complete freedom on all the topics
that presumed themselves IN tbe course ol' a
long conversation-which, however, seemed
very Bhort while lt lasted, so sparkling and
pungent were many of the veteran statesman's
observations Beierring to the rumore about
the dangerous stale ot his health, he said:

MYSTERIOUS MRS. MASON.
AN OLD A CQ VAIN TAN CE IN NEW GUISE
The History of a Beautiful Eirnnctte
Her Perils by Flood and Field.
- A correspondent of tbe New York World
gives the following history of the mysterious
Mrs. Mason, whom, no doubt, a good, many
Gharlestonlans bare reason to remember.
Mrs. Mason ls cow said to have been con?
nected with tb? sales of arms to the French
Government-hence ber reappearance In
print. Tbe correspondent says :
Mrs. Mason was born in Virginia, nome thirty
years ago, aud grew to womanhood there and
in Baltimore, in which last city sae became
engaged to be married to a distinguished Call
fornlan, wbo wounded Broderick in a duel,
and who. dying before their marriage, left her
a handsome Income of which ?he was defraud?
ed. Her family having removed lo Washing?
ton she resided here several years before the
war, and until ehe was allowed upon a pass
specially granted by General Scott, in the fall
of 1861, to cross tbe "lines" Into Virginia upon
Important family affairs. Crossing the Poto?
mac In a small, trail boat, her Journey to Rich?
mond was full of hardship and romantic Inci?
den! s, for she was suspected by the rebel au?
thorities, who for some time regarded her. as
a spy. Her stay in the South wan short, how?
ever, for she was taken under a "Hag of truce"
to Norfolk or Fortress Monroe, and turned
over, according to the newspapers of ihe day,
as an "alien enemy" expelled from the Con?
federacy. It ls alleged, however, that this
was a mere cloak to conceal an Important mis?
sion with which she bad been entrusted at
Richmond, and for which her peculiar talents,
studies and Inclination appeared to flt ber.
One thing Is certain at least. She did not enter
?Virginia on any other errand than personal
Returning to Washington Bhe resided ap?
parently at one of the principal hotels, attract?
ing a good deal of attention from prominent
military men and politicians, until ti nally ar?
rested and thrown Into the "Old Capitol
Prison" upon the charges or being In direct
communication with the rebel authorities and
having beguiled Information irom a high staff
officer. Curiously enough, lt ls thought she
owed her arrest to a rival emissary, the fa?
mous Mrs. Greenough. After several mom hs'
Incarceration, no proof having been found
against her, she was released, but required to
return to the South, presenting In the person
of one delicate woman the strange spectacle
of being expelled alternately from the territo?
ry of two giant belligerent powers, or tossed
like a shuttlecock (rom one to the other. She
was even sent under tbe escort of an officer to
the Confederate lines on James River.
A3 an Illustration of ber cleverness, It ls
told on good authority tbat, having a hand?
some Confederate flag for General Beauregard,
and finding that her baggage would be
searched as she was leaving Federal territory,
she folded lt within ber shaw], which was
proudly and gallantly carried upon the arm of
tbe officer (General Buel) intrusted by the
government with ber expulsion from the terri?
tory ol the United States.
For the rest of the war Mrs. Mason seems to
have resided at Charleston. 8. C., where she
was wheo that city fell Into Federal possession
In February, 1866, and soon after which she
was allowed to return to her family In that
city, with whom she bas been resloiog ever
HER PERSONAL APPEARANCE.
She ls a brunette of the most decided type,
with purple-black hair, dark brown eyes, and
although of small, delicate figure. Is of singu?
larly striking appearance, with the air and
manner of a French rather than an American
woman. She has read a great deal, although
Irregularly, and Is exceedingly well informed
about matters that do not generally Interest
women, especially political affairs and histori?
cal subjects. Thoroughly feminine In appear?
ance, ber turn of thought le masculino. She
converses with fluency and earnestness In a
musical, seaitctlve volet*, and ls most attract?
ive for clever men. with whom the ai traci lon
arises from mental rather than physical quali?
ties, although at times she ls very pretty.
It has attracted general notice that a woman
should have been found mixed up In these
arms Bales; but in reality lt would have been
strange had no woman been thus connected,
as In all other human affairs from birth to
death-In the redemption as well as the fall of
man. We have all heard the trite but charac?
teristic story ot the French Judge, who, when
any one was arraigned bet?re him on any
charge, was wont to ask, "Who ls the
woman ?" This, however, bas always been
the practice of man. For aid not Adam, even
in Paradise, resort to the craven device of ex?
claiming: l>The woman whom thou gavest to
be wita me, ehe gave me of the tree, and I did
HAVANA, April 16.
The death of General Edward Agramonte ls
fully confirmed. The Spanish Irlgates Aripiles
and Gerena have left St. Thomas for Venezue?
la. The Spanish shlp-of-war Tornado bas gone
to Aspinwall. The purging house on Pocy's
plantation Is burned. Loss one hundred and
fifty thousand dollars.
A DIABOLICAL OUTRAGE.
CHARLOTTE, April 16.
The latter part of last week a squad of
Federal cavalry shot and killed a poor coun?
tryman by the name of Parla while fishing in
a boat in Broad River, in York District, South
Carolina. The soldiers allege that they shot
only to terrify him. The squad was under
command of Lieutenant Benners.
TWO HEN KILLED IN YORK.
[From the Columbia Phooix of Yesterday.]
A gentleman from York County, yesterday,
iniormed us that on Friday last, a eqhad ol
United SiateB troops, engaged in arresting
parties suspected of violation of the enforce?
ment act, shot and killed two brothers, named
Craig, whom they were endeavoring to catch.
The troops, as our informant beard the story,
where In chase of tbe; Craigs, and were close
upon them, when, reachlug '.he Broad River,
about fifteen miles from Yurkville, t he pursued
party plunged in, end were t-hot while swim?
ming across. One of the brothers was shot
and sink instantly, and no more has been
seen of bim. The other was fatally wounded
through the thigh, was captured and brought
on shore, but died on Saturday. Let us bave
A USEFUL ARTICLE.
Ammonia, or as lt ls generally called, spirits
of hartshorn, is a powenul alka.I, and dissolves
grease and dirt with great ease. It has lately
been recommended very highly for domestic
purposes. For washing paint, put a table
spoonful in a quart of m> flerately boc water,
dip in a tunnel cloth and then wipe off the
wood work; no scrubbing will be necessary.
For taking greasy spots from any fabric use
the ammonia nearly pure, then lay white blot?
ting paper over the spot and Iron it lightly. In
washing lace put about twelve drops ina pint
of warm suds. To clean silver, mix two tea
Bpoonluls of ammonia lu a quart of hot suds.
Put In your silverware and wash, uslbg an old
na l-omah or tooth-'Tush for the purpose.
Forcleanlng hair-brwshe?, Ac, simply snake
the brushes up aud down In a mixture of one ta?
blespoonful of ammonia to one pint of hot wa?
ter; when they are cleansed, rinse them in
cold water, and stand them In th? wind or in
a hot place to dry. For wastilng finger-marks
Irom looking-glasses or windows, put a few
oro ps of ammonia on a moist, rat; and make
quick woik of lt. Ii you wish your hi use
plants to flourish put a few drops of the spirits
In every pintof water used in watering. Atea
ppoonful will add nvicu to the refreshing effects
of a bath. Nothing is better than ammonia
water for cleansing the bair. lu ?very ca<e
rinse off the ammoula with clear water. To
which we would only add, thar, lor removiag
grease sp ts. a mixture ot equal parts ot am?
monia and alcohol is bett- r man alcohol alone;
and for taking out the led stains produced by
the strong acids ia blue and black clothes
there ls nothing better man ammonia.-Prov
