almost incredible rapidity. Tbe undulatory

-A Washington letter says: It ls generally
known thai the patent for the Wheeler and
Wilson sewing mach!ne soon expires. Dur-1
lng the last session of Congress there were
eeygral noaocoeaarol efforts made to have lt
axtajadftrt, but the application tor extension of J
the patent ia san before the Senate commit?
tee on patents, and lt ls not likely to be re por
ted this session. In case the extension ls de
fea.* ed it Is the opinion of many posted la tbe
manufacture of sewing machines and other
pat8ata. that the price ol sewing machines
??1 he bronght down to from twenty dollars
to twenty-five dollars. In the testimony filed
. before the committee, and given by skilled
mechanics, lt,la stated that the average coat
of manufacturing sewing machines ls from
seven dollars to twelve. This machine, like
many Others, Is owned by what ls known as the
"Sewing Machine Combination." and the ap?
plication lor the extension of ibe patent la j
in the name of A. B. Wilson. Many of the
smaller sewing machine companies oppose
the extension with all their power. Tb ere ls
on fie'before the committee petitions signed
by over twenty thousand persons, many of
whom have from one to fifty maoblnes In op?
eration in manulaoiurl ag es t&Ulsh me nts, ask.

-As aras to oe feared, the recent calm wblch
prevailed to the latitude o? Mexico bas proved
illusory, and DOW the usual tempests of revo
lutlottsaod conspiracies have recommenced
their laminar sway, It was majestically an?
nounced, that under the beneficent rule of
Lerdo de Trejada Mexico was destined to en?
ter anew era Of peace, quietness and pros?
perity, the Hon and the lamb were to lie down
together, and the desert blossom aa the rose.
Porfirio Dian, the unconscionable freebooter,
was to be forgiven to tears, and returned to
his post ot honor to the army. The brigands
were to be scoured from hill and dale, and the
places that knew the horse thieves were to
know them no more forever. The dream was
too ?weet to last and tbe obronio disorder too
strongly entrenched In the Mexican body poli?
tic to be exterminated by pacific proclama?
tions and mild-mannered m an lies toes. And
now they are at it again, tooth and nail.
Zepada, reputed to be a bloody-minded man,
has been removed from office by Commander
in-Chief Booba, and In accordance with cus?
tom and tradition has organized a revolution,
which will end no one knows how or when!
The probability Is that the disaffection reported
at Bal?Uo will spread and strengthen until
active hostilities are again rendered necessary,
nod that a very fair sized war will be apt to
defer the date of Lerdo's millennium.
-Th? personal appearance of tbe Mikado of
Japan is thus described to the Japan Gazette:
"It is difficult to give an explanation of the
Mikado's attire, as lt was so totally different
from toy costume known to any foreigners
that the very terms seem wanting. Suf?
fice lt theo, that commencing at his feet,
he wore shoes much resembling Ch?nese, but
handsomely embroidered. Descending to
these wer? the wide trowsers, called h ak am aa
to this country, made of rich white silk, and
from bis neck to a little below his knee a tu?
nic of rich brocade ol a kind of amber or light
chocolate oolor fell. Athis back was a kind
of obi, springing over a light frat
waist, and flowlog la two long rt
trains into the hands of traln-beai
hair, drawn tightly back Irom his

the very top of bis head, and from

j ernmont should assume exclusive a
j the telegraph, and manage it as i
I the postal system. The Postmaste

"But, though not anticipated or fori

which onr ancestors were familiar. * *
The same principle whioh justified an
maoded tbe transference of the mall, on
chief routes, from the horse-drawn coa
common highways to tbe sleam-lmpelle
bides on land and water, ls equally pote
warrant the calling ol the eieotro-mag
telegraph In aid of ibe postofflce In diner
of Its great funoilon of rapidly transml
correspondence and intelligence."
And again :
"Should the arrangements Into wblo

with private Individuals or associations, s
late exclusive rights In their favor, lt ls o
fest how greatly government and pc
wonld He at their mercy. Having In i

to this subject, that the people will never

monopoly or establishment whatever,
loss ot revenue will co-operate with the c
plaints and Bufferings of ihe people to do v

The committee dwelt with mach emph

Tho immediate cause of Mr. Creswc
movement now is a disagreement betwc
him and the telegraph companies as to l
terms on which tbe Government shall i

why the Government should own the tc
graph, he proceeds to state many othe
He apprehends that In time the telegrs
will seriously Interfere with the Postofl
Department by curtailing business, and ;
serta that this would be already the cai
had the comptrollers of the telegraph p
perly reduced their rates. He says that (
Government has only saved Itself by I
liberality of Its postofflce policy, and thai
lt bad the telegraph lt would apply ihe sai
liberal policy to that. We make one quot
tlon from Mr. Cres well's report, which ei
bodies the kernel of the answer to tbe cb
objections to bis proposed proposition,
this quotation Mr. Creswell is reciting arg
menta already advanced:
"It was contended, and with effect, that t
business or telegraphing was substantial
tho same as letter-carrying, and that no r;
son could be advanced la favor of gover
mental management ol the one which did n
apply with equal force to the other; that tl
incorporation ot ihe telegraph with the pot
office would not at first add largely to tl
number ol' officials, and that ihe technic
training and experience whioh these officia
must have In order topertorm their duth
at all would preclude their selection for pi
Utica 1 reasons; that the simple precaution
timing the receipt, transmission and dell
ery of messages would prevent their dela
and that their secrecy could be as effectual!
guarded by government under restraint <
law aa lt ever haa been by private partie,
that the name motives exlstedfor efficiei
management on the part of salaried offlolaii
whether In the employ ol the Government c
of a widely-extended corporation; that th
people couid exert a much greater lnflueou
on a government department, through Got
greaa and through ; the press, lhan they ca
upon a company managed in the interests c
lia stockholders, notwithstanding the lees
responsibility of the latter; that ihe consol!
dation ot competing Unes and the removal c
toe ornees into the poatofflces would cause i
large reduction m tbe expense of manage
ment, and that the employment ol one sui
K?&Jhhffi *?dt?eleK*"Pt> service at pe
baps two-thirds of the stations, besides fur
ther reducing the expenses, wouid enable thi
department to pay better salaries than ar.
now received by either class of employees
and secure greater efficiency."
Li the face of practical arguments Uki
these, lt will not do for old fogies to diBmisi
the postal telegraph with the flippant deda
ration that "the evils which would grov,
"out of its adoption far outweigh ari y a d van
"tagee which it might offer." The system
! is now working advantageously in near'y
I every country in Europe, and in some of
them, as in England, for instance, we are
not aware that it has shackled free tbonght
or an independent press. In fact, the
strongest objections apply less to the scheme
itself than to the manner in which ifs oppo?
nents fear that it may be carried out Bat
whether wise or unwise, the postal tele
I graph, we take it, is to be one of the insti?
tutions of the near future; and those who
clamor against lt in the anti-consolidation
and States-rights intered, may make up
their minds for a fight, in which, with less
popular sympathy, they will have the same
saccess that has attended all their recent
struggles against the "encroachments" of
the advocates of a stroDg government
Schurz a? a Lecturer.
Hon. O.rl Schurz has passed from the dis?
cussion of American politics to the lecture
field, In which he makes historical and social
comparisons between the two great countries,
France and Germany, which have been so
hotly contending for the world's favor and
approval as well as individual superiority.
Perhaps Hr. Schurz'a loyalty, so nobly mani?
fested toward the land of his adoption, may
have prejudiced him somewhat In hold?
ing up, as he did at Louisville the other day,
his native land and her antagonist side by
side. He said tbe American had hardly a
fair opportunity of judging of the character
and capacity of the German. He sees him
here under all the disadvantages of having to
oope with a foreign language and foreign
habits. His great peculiarity at home Is bis
love of the true and hatred of all slams.
The family, the source of all that ls valuable
to society, ls reoognized la all its worth
and dignity; the women are neither strong
minded noir frivolous; the virtues ol the house?
wife and mother are prized above all others.
Duty ls the great Impelling motive. In modern
times the Prussian has beoume the ruler of |
Germany. He ls by no means amiable; rather
! conceited, self-oonfident, even arrogant. But
with him the force of duty, of order, of earn?
estness in all pursuits ot life ls the strongest.
After paying a tribute to Bismarck's talents
be passed to the side of France. The French
bad for centuries been the pete of the world.
They had in many respects deserved lt In
politics, In literature, In the exact sciences
they had done their lull share. But they had
always tully exhibited their full merits. Tney
were like a man who exhibits his whole
wealth In Jewels upon his shirt bosom. Borne
ot those Jewels may be pure diamonds, others
may be paste. It was Paris and the great cities
! lu wnloh the virtues and excellences 01
I France were exhibited to the world; lt was
[ Paris also, lu which the vices of France were
developed most intensely. In conclusion,
he hoped that the Uoerty which many centu?
ries ago spread from the forests of Germany
over the known world, would never go down
lo America, where lt had borne Its noblest
Tho Tide of Immigration,
Present appearances Indicate that Immigra?
tion Into the United atates will be unpre?
cedentedly extensive next year. The German
element bids fair to be still more generously
represented In the luture than In the past,
[ and all the wrathful effusions of the Kaiser
tall to produce the desired effect of lessening
the ever-increasing overflow of his subject?.
From the United Kingdom the emigration ol
1873 also promises to be immense. A letter ?
ls printed la a Western paper, written by an
Englishman of Somersetshire, and saying that
j a grand exodus of the bone and sinew ot
j Great Britain ls to take place in the spring.
The English agent, to whom appertains the
! duty ot organizing new colonies, is said to be
overwhelmed with applications. One thou?
sand emigrants are already prepared to de?
part and the agent thinks he is already sure
of capital to the amount of two hundred and
fifty thousand dollars, whloh will be probably
quadrupled at tbe opening of spring. It Is
understood that a very large proportion of
the new colonists will settle in the Northwest,
and they will, of course, add Incalculably to
the already mighty resources and capacities
of that region.
