Amci'taid tho book was in the bands of
hit countul, ilornce F. Clark, at the
Arlington hotel, but ho would send for ltf

Half an hour 'later Clark appeared ls
counsel for Ames, and made a ipeecb

In reply to a question Ames laid ho had

that Patterson paid him in August, 1SG7,

In no repect was ho working in tho in

so it will not exclude thoso country weekly
papers having n portion of their editions
printed in largo letter.
Mr. yarnsworlh explained tho bill nt
length ns to tho prepayment of newspaper
postage, and made tho following state
ment: Poalago revenues last year were,
letters $10,3" 1,000; newspapers and
periodical.", $035,010. So tho revenue for
letters was twenty times as great ns that
for newspapers, while newspaper malls
wero twenty timet tho weight and bulk of
lettors. In 18T0 thero wero in round
numbers printed, of daily papers, in the
year, eight hundred million copies, or nn
average of over two nnd a half millions a
day; of wcctly papers, six hundred mil
lion copies, or an nvorngo ol ovor elevon
and a half millions a week ; of monthly
periodicals, ono hundred million
copies, or an nvcrngo of ovor
eight nnd a third millions a month.
TWa" Jowe-rt;rto oT pottage on' these pub
lications was $1 SO a yoar. On weeklies
'JO cents, and on monthlies 12 cents. He
thought It not too rno'.h to say that 10 per
cont. of tbo dallies, and 80 per cent, of tho
wocklies and monthlies passed through tho
mails. If that were to and tho postago
had been collected on it, it should havo
yielded n Utal of $2,953,015, whilo the ac
tual receipts from those sources wero only
$035,010. It was theroforo manifested
t'jat but n small part of the post
ago nn that which constituted tho great
bulk of weight of mails was never received
by the department.
Mr. Roberis of Now York moved to
amend the bill making postago on daily
newspapers not exccodini: four ouncos in
weight 15a por quartor. After discussion
the amendment was agreed to..

wero agreed to and the bill then patted.

HATS AND lltiNKCTS.
In this important part of the street
outfit very littlo cliango in" shapes has
neon maua slnco tho opening ot tbo
season ; but a moro novel and even eccen
tric intermingling ol shades is now pro
vailing. One of these freaks of fashion
is a mixture of deep plum color and
muzarino blue, in velvet and silk royal,
anu irimmeu witn garlands and coronets
of tlowers nestled down with soft laces and
ostrich feathers. Watered ribbons, which
wero so much worn tbe tint of the teaton,
are now suporseueu uy plain ana trros
grain ribbon. Twoshailnaof anydoaldd
color aro aito mucn worn in bonnets.
Somo of those chaptaui uro composed
of deep bronze and lizard croon volvet.
and trimmed with foathor and ribbon two
shades lighter. The foathor ure In form
of a coronet, with a drooping willow
plume falling over loops of soft-finished
ribbon. French bluo and Indian sky aro
tuiiuea mucn worn togetner, and It a most
artistic bienuinir ol snaucs.
Tho Michael Angclo bonnet Is a great
fovorite, and is exceedingly stylish when
composed of velvet in dark and
light ;)iim tints, with loops and ends of rib
bon of samo shade, and a coronet of jiaou
tinted laurel leaves.
An approved and much-adopted stvle
of hat is the Henry III. This is usually
composed of black velvet, with white split
ottricn leatners over tue tun ot tue crown.
and from this Is appended a graceful wil
low pitimo lulling noarly to the shoulders
'1 ho richness or material, gorgeous or
naments and rcchtrchc designs in oporn
cloaks outrival the costumes worn in the
play of "Lullu Rookh." The latest nov
olty In theso are zephyr or silk and satin
woven tpgelbcr in stripes; and In tho
zephyr stripes are sprigs of gorgoous flow
ers dotted over it in rich chintz colon.
These aro mado in tulma form, with
pointed hood, and cord and tassels
at tho bottom of tbo Dolnt.
Tho edge Is trimmed with silk and bullion
frlngo. Another It composed of armour
silk. This is puro white, nnd heavily
dotted or seeded, nnd is a thick und spongy
fabric, lined with plain silk and beauti
fully quilted. It is in circular form nnd
trimmed with knotted fringe. Ono in
mantle form, tho ends crossing in front
und passing under tbo arms to tho back,
wnere it is lasteneu in mails, wuicn form
tho skirt of tho clonic. The matorial of
this cloak is fine white cashmere, and
heavily braided with silk floss. At tho
bottom of tho wulst twist of whito silk
cord aro looped in rosotto form, to which
are appended heavy tassels and tho gar-
iiioiu is iiiiiniiuu nu rounu wun siik
frlngo. Others aro composed of French
broadcloth, which has a peculiar yellowish-white
shade. Thcso are trimmed with
woolen bullion frlngo.
A new stylo of carriage clonk in white
lambskin cloth is trimmed with folds and
bands of flno grain velvet, of which two
or three- rows aro put round tho bottom
and up tho front of the basque. This
garment is tight fitting with full back,
and trimmed with chiuollo nnd worsted
fringe, wovon together, tho worsted part
of which is whito, and tho cbinelle of the
sumo shade, as tho velvet with which tho
cloak is trimmed. Narrow velvet loop
mixed with whito worsted cord, also
looped in diamond form, rosettot are put
upon the shoulders, from which fall
heavy tassels. Tho sleeves aro half flow
ing and trimmed with bands and folds of
Velvet and braided cashmoro polonaise
and tunics, mado very long, aro worn
with skirts of differont materials.
Cashmoro mornlne wrappers and other
of satin, lined and quilted In diamonds,
aro most worn. The satin quilted ones
aro made without trimming of any kind,
and fastened from the throat to tho bot
tom of the skirt with velvet or satin but
tons. Tim waist nre made to fit the
form closely, by coring, srlTinir amnio
fullnesit to tho skirt. Thoso .composed of

Ingenious people have collected the
particular weakness. Good men whn
djing may often giro utterance to tbe
keynote of their lives, but with a homi
cide we think it a nice psychological
point that hia keynote can best be taken
ut or about tbe lime he takes a life not
his own. Wo do not propose going back
to the time, about twenty year ago, of
the murder of Bill Poole bv Faudhn
McLaughlin a'.Stanwix Hall. Thero i
something very suggestive, however, in
that cato of an invitation to murderer of
ho fired hit
commence our quotation from tbo modern
murder classic with that unfortunate
prophet of the murderer' Arcadia, who
loarned in hit person tho disbelief that
overtakes prophets generally in their own

These, we imagine, should uffice for
examples. Thoy aro barely ono in six
among tho slaughter of the past tbree
years; but thoro is much material for
thought in thcso phrases that in each caso
aro Indentified with a scene of vlolonco,
blood and death. There Is no
necessity for us supple
menting these ejaculations with the storie
of tho murders themselves. Tbe effect
can be as simply and accurately reached
by ulways bearing in mind that close to
the time of utterance of these phrases, by
night or by day, there could be found a
lllelcs form, a white face with a horrified
look, a pair of (tony staring eyes and ono
or mora gaping wounds, with blood all
ciottod around tneir moutb.
THE HOOSAO TUNNEL.
For eighteen year past, from time to
time, notices concerning tbe progress of
work on tho Hoosac Tunnel have been the
rounds of tho press, and thousands of
readers havo nover known where tbe tun
nel is located. Hoosac Mountain is In
Uorkshiro county, Massachusetts, and is
an obstruction to transportation between
tno vaney oi inn Connecticut and Hud
son rivers. Tho tunnel is for a railroad
and will be four and one half miles in
lungth when completod. Work wat com
menced on the tunnol in 1855, by
tho Troy and Greenfield Railroad Co.,
aided by the date of Massachusetts, and
was carried on by contract. Several con
tractors worked on tho tunnel until they
tailed, so intervals occurred when no pro
gress was mado. The present contractor,
aided by modern inventions, such a dia
mond drills, nitro-glycerlne, etc., has
been successful in working from the east
nnd west (Bit of the tunnel, and east and
eatt and west from the abaft about tho
center of tho line, and tbe "great bore" has
been again brought prominently before tbe
public from tho fact that on Thursday,
Docembor 12, the parties working
from the east ond and from
tho central shaft toward the
East healing effected a junction about
I COO feet under ground, and opened a hot
largo enough for men to pas through.
Tho distance excavated from the But end
to tho cuntral shaft it 3,168 feet more than
two mile. West of tbe (baft, a little over
half a mile of excavation is yet to be
made to complete the tunnel. It i ex
pected by tbe contractor tbat tbe great
work will be completed by November,
18T3, and tbe tunnel opeaed for burin.
When completed, the lloosao will be the
loo aett tunnel in the United State, and
