$4.00,000 baa been raited to aecuro the

amount! to two hundred million dollars,
and the oatimated profit In 1871, twenty
million dallars. In 1872 at least seven
nundred thousand macblnea weru made,
and allowing that two hundred thousand
of them were exported, tho several comp-
um mm nave received ai lean twenty
five million dollar for the flva hundred
thousand, $5,000,000 covering the cost of
uianuiaciuring anu patent rees. it Is
well known that the eewing-macbino
patenU are about to expire, and there is
formidable combination of interettt at
"Washington to lobby tbelr extension
through congrest. There aro about
twenty-five sewing-machine companlot
in tbo United State, flvo of thorn manu

the machines produced. The nominal

about twentv million dollar, and. in .t.

A PROBLEM FOB "WOMEN.
Jean Ingelow bat written a letter to
Lucy Stone Blackwell in which the re
marks, that to bar thought, one of the prob
lems, on which depends to a great degree
tha welfare of women, It to discover bow
domestic work is to be combined with high
culture. It will la discovered that Miss
Ingelow evidently regard the tphere of
woman at a domestic ono at a home one,
and instead of inquiring bow the may be
lifted out of it, tbo aims to discover how
the may become tliebapptostand the inoit
useful in it. And Miss Iogelow's question
itself lets in a great deal of light on the
subject of household labor and household
discomforts. "Domestic work" it never
done by (killed bands. The teatuitrcu,
the tailor, the boct-maler, the milliner,
the shirt-maker, r.ll past through a' proba
tionary courte of preparation before they
enter on the particular work in which
they expect to engage, and a pretender
or an imposter who would attempt to
practice either of the foregoing trad,
or many not montioned, would at once be
detected and pay the penalty for audi
Imposition by lost of patronage. The
knowledge household servants may have
of the work required or them, is knowl
edge picked up here and tbera al chance
may direct. Many servants, in fact the
majority of foreign born or colored ser
vants, can neither read nor write, and
cook-books and other aids to healthy
economical and tasteful house-keeping are
sealed books to them. It it fact that a
woman whe) cannot read may keep well
cotrat floor, or nwy table-clothi
ay bake good bread and palatable loaves'

distent' Mr U of home-keeping together,
and causa them, lika a fine and complicated

wall, mutt coma from a cultivation
of tht ' Bind for tha task, and
M iu auccetaful attainment depend
thakM4aaMor aaltery of tbt family re
lationship. Jean Ingolow writes a qualLt
but sensible latter on tha subject, tl a
rullag sentiment of which is that home
keeping in all its branches, should ba
made ths study of women, And when It
Is, when It It regarded at a trado to ba
learned, at an occupation which most
woman are called on to practice, and as
one which, in all its details, is only dft-
graceful as it It ill-dono, the real elevation
and emancipation of women will fairly
have begun. Women need to be emanci
pated from many foolish customs, to out
grow many false ideas regarding them
selves, tbelr capacities and tlioir aspira
tions. Toiuob, a happy homo is an aim
worthy af any woraau, and a higher ono
she cannot reach, though sho tread tit

Eliot, or sing llko Nlltton.
Washington, D. C, Feb. 11, 1873.
Tho sonata committco engaged in in"
vettlgnting the Louisiana muddlomadoa
partial report yesterday. Tho commltteo
hold that noither tho senate of the United
States nor both houses Jointly have tho
constitutional power to canvass tho re
turns of an election and count tho votes to
determine who havobcen olectod presiden
tial electors; the mode and manner of
chooilng elector's belonging exclusively to
the states. The committee stated that they
were not prepared to report upon the
questions of the existonce of a legal state
government in Louisiann and the admis
sion of a senator from that state. It is
not probable that these questions will bo
settled this 'session, to the aspirations of
the gcntlomon for a few wcoks of senatorial
honor will bo dusbed. Tbo partlsxnsbip
and ill-concealed chagrin displayed by
M essrs. Morton and Carpenter at the dam
ning testimony against tho Radical conspi
rators Kellogg & Co. was tho subject
of general remark, as showing that orders
bad gone forth that tbo friends of the ad
ministration must bo sustained and the
above named tupereerviccablo senators
provod most earnest in the work.
AMES TO TUB FORK.
It was rumored and generally believed
that Mephlsto Ames would not teturn
from Boston, and not a few devoutly
wished it. CoKax for Instance, who has
promised to explain all about that $1,200
as toon at Amet roturned. To tbo conttor
nationof quite a number Amet put in an ap
poarance and brought that inexhauttablo
memorandum book. Quite a tontatton
was created by a rumor that Ame had
another memorandum book in which
diver varlou transactions, implicating
a fresh batch of congressional victims,
wero shown up, and a general wriggling
among conicience itrlcken 31. C a was
the result. It was only by Ames donying
tbo story of tba No, 2 memorandum book
and allowing a confidential poop into tho
dreaded memorandum book, from which
ha so continuously refreshed
his memory, that the congres
sional mind was put at peace, for it was
discovered that ho has nothing new in hi
book; it only corroborated hi previous
testimony. Notwithstanding the extent
of tba Credit Mobilior expose and tbo
sensation it has croated tboro will be no
expulsions; thero may be a few light
words of censure administered on the
Jackassltineness displaped by M. C's. in
not owning up boldly to their "flyer " in
Credit Mobilier instead of equivocating,
denying, lying and then topping off with
downright perjury as a few of the victims
did. No one will be hurt any more than at
present, which amounts to political opin
INCRIASX Or SALARIES.
The bill to increase the compensation of
Justices of the United Slates, members
of congress and other high ofQcla1,wat de
feated by a voto of 114 to 81. This was on
a proposition to suspond tbo rules ; th
bill (may yet pass this session. The sal
aries oi our officials from the lowest up to
tba highest are too small everything hero
in the way ot living being extremely
dear that with tbe purchasing power of
a dollar, about one-half that it used to be,
and salaries no higher, It is a struggle to
make ends meet. There was a deal of
sheer cowardice shown in the
vote givou yesterday, many o
tboso who voted "nay" moant "aye,'
but wero afraid to say so. Tbe Credit
Mobilier lame ducks Amos, Dawes, Kul
ley, Garfldld and Schofleld virtuously
voted against an increase of salaries. Ben
Butler, who at least is not a hypocrite,
was disgusted at the self-sacrificing Mo-
llliors, and laid that they having received
tbelr dividends, could live comfortably
without an increaso of pay. It is astonish
ing how much such as Butler, Nye, Chan
dler and other Radical rusticities have
risen in public estimation since the fall ol
our christian statesmen Colfax, Harlan,
l'atterson, romeroy, Dawes tf. al. The
moral and christian law-maker is way
down below par at present market quo.
THE NEW FOSTAGE LAW.
(From the Cblcaro Tribune.)
Tho new DoiUce bill, pasiod bv tha
house of representatives, is a fitting se
quel 10 me repeal 01 mo iraiiKtng privilege
The new bill, if it pass tbo sen am, will go
Into effect in July, 1878, after which date
tbe rates of poiUgo on all letters not ex
ceeding balf an ounce In weight will bo
iwo cent insieau 01 inree cents. This
will require tbe handling and transporta
tion of one-third mora letter to paoduce
tho present amount ot revenue, but there
is a certainty mai me ifto-cent rate will
produce more revenue eventually than tbe
present three-cent rate.
Tbe great cost of the mail traasporta
tion butines it In tbo case of printed mat
tar, for which tbo postal service receives
little or no compensation. Tbe new law
reduces tba rates of postage on printed
matter, after January, 1874, one-half the
resent rates, tbe same to be propald. Mr.
Farnsworlb, to whose untiring efforts the
country is largely indebted for this bill,
estimates that the government doet not
now receive, one-third of the pottage
properly due and collectable on tho new" -papen
and other nubllcatlon
the mail. Tha government, tbarefora, can
wall afford to reduce tbe rate one-balf.and
by gettjng paid in advance will Kill nearly
double tht present revenue, But tha gov
ernment will find that when tha pottage
oa all priated matter it prepaid tbe rate
of pottage may ba still furtucr reduced, as
in tha caso or letters. Tbe proper mode
of paying pottage on printed matter,
when it Is mailed in large quantities, Is
by weight. Tba daily paper that deposits
a ton of nawspapart in the post oflico in
tba morning can more readily pay the
poittgo on the whole ton at one time than
it can ba done by collecting It, at at pres
ent, once every three montht from 20,000
pertont tcattored in all parts of the coun
try. Tha publishers of magazines
In like mannor thould pay their
pottaga, not by tho weight ol each copy,
but by tho weight of tbelr cntiro mull,
each time they deposit it in tbe office.
Tha rule thould be inflexible, that no
printed matter of any kind thould be re
ceived Into tha office upon which the pott
aga It not prepaid, and then everything
reaching apett-office through tbe mailt
will be free to the person directed. No
man or publisher has any right to tbo freo
ute of the mailt j hat no right to tax other
people to pay for carrying hit letlert or pa
per. Tbit Juttlco Is only attalnablo when
prepayment it imperative Wbon that
is secured, it will bo found upon
a very abort experience tbat tho
rates of poslogo on all printed matter may
bo reduced, not only to ono-half, but to
ona-flith tho prosent rates. It took a long
time to get congress out of tbo system of
charging postago on lottors by the sheet,
and not by tho woight. No one at this
tlmo would think of charging postag? on
letton other than by weight. So
with rogard to nowtpapcrs. Publishers
of largo papers should pay more fur pout
ago than publishers of small paper; each
should pay according to tho actual woight
deposited in tho mail, und no tnoro; and,
iustead of stamping each pupcr, tha pos
lago can bo paid 011 tbo wbolo edition ac
cording to iu weight, wbotbortbat edition
weigh twonty pounds or a ton. When
this system gots fairly to work, publishers
will wonder why it was novcr adopted be
fore and tho rovenuos of the postal tcr
vlco from printed matter will bo found,
like tbat from letters, solf-Justalning.
