UNCLE SAM'S MUSEUM.
SltuUs, KimltcH mid Tonil In tho
Waiunoton, May 8. The Post Office
Department has just opened a museum of
articles which have reached tho Dead Letter
Office, either as undelivered because the
proper parties could not be found, or as"
articles. The collection is certainly
a queer one, and the use to which the
mails aio put, as exemplified by
tho articlos here, is really astonishing.
Tho museum occupies
n good sized room, and tho cases, reaching
from floor to ceiling, nro full, and might
have been so a hundred times over. Among
the articles is n huge rattlesnake coiled in
a glass jar, with open mouth and forked
tongue. Ho was put in the mails alive,
in a perforated tin can. Kcsklo him
is another snake, perhaps four feet in
length, and no.xt to that a couplo of centipedes,
equally as poisonous in their bites,
and almost invariably fatal. They woio
all put into the mails alive. On tho other
sido of tho jar containing tho rnttlesnako
is a baby alligator, and tho head of another,
perhaps a year old. Bolow is a collection
of specimens from various mines
in tho West, tho value of which is considerable.
Ono littlo package among these contains
about $100 worth of gold.
On a shelf abovo is a collection of coins
which would provoko the envy of tho most
self-denying collector of articles of this
nature. Some of theso aro very rare, several
coins dating back full 2,000 years
being among tho numbor. There is a locket
bearing upon tho back tho inscription,
" Mrs. Lucy Randolph, died 1783," a hundred
years ago. The locket contains a picturo
of a soldier, and it is supposed that he
confiscated it somewhore in tho South during
tho war, had his o.wn picturo inserted
instead of the ono whoso name it bore, and
sent it to his sweetheart, who never called
for it at tho office of delivery. Besido it is
another picturo, a gentleman ami lady, in
a gold frame, which has been in the department
for over forty years awaiting a
claimant. Besido this is a set of false
teeth upon a gold plate, and just below
is a bottle of beer whicli somo kind
hearted person had sent to a beer
drinking friend, but which failed to
reach its destination, Thero aro soveral
bridles, various parti of a saddle, horseshoes,
and a light iron
everything, as tho lady in charge of tho
museum oddly remarked, everything, but
" A gentlemen who was in hero the other
day," bIio said, " remarked that wo had
everything but a tomahawk and a Bible,
That samo day I discovered a tomahawk
up thero on that shelf, and a day or two
later a gentleman who was looking at tho
collection pointed out that book as being a
Chineso Testament. Over thero, on that
Eieeo of paper, is tho
ord's Prayer in fifty-four languages."

Dublin, May 8. Farl Spencer, Lord
Lieutenant, has commuted the death sentence
of Patrick Dclancy, who pleaded
guilty to a charge of complicity in the
murder of Cavendish and Burke.
London, May 8. Reports of National
Leaguo meetings in Ireland annoy the
Government greatly, and statements made
by Mr. Harrington, M. P.; T. D. Sullivan,
M. P., and other Irish leaders and published
in this morning's papers, show that
is to be carried on more persistently
that ever if that wcro possible.
Tho Government is openly accused of
tampering with tho detectives, polico and
witnesses, and resorting to the meanest
and pettiest dovices to crush out liberty in
Ireland. Harrington especially says, that
tho system of Government interference is
malignant, spiteful and malicious. Whilo
Englishmen and Americans could not well
be prevented from contributing to tho
fund tho Administration is charged
with intimidating Irishmen from making
such contributions. Detectives aro accused
of bribing confined prisoners with
money and whisky to secure ovidence, and
manufacture evidence and procure informers
to swear away tho lives of innocent
men. They mako definite accusations on
this subject and locato times and places,
especially in tho Galway Jail. The population
of Irclaud according to these reports
is llccing ns fast as it can raise money to
London, May 8. Tho leaders of the
Irish party have, in accordance with a policy
which was indicated somo timo np.
and which hns been gradually culminating,
agreed to such a supervisional iIivimuii
of their own Parliamentary business as, it
is hoped, will lesult to the best advantage.
The division for the piesent will bo only
provisionally, and may be changed at any
time. Tlicio aro to bo three commissions,
tlic first of which will watch public business
in the limine of Commissions so far as it
relates to home matters; the second, foreign
and colonial mattcis, and tho ibiid,
appropriations, climates and financial
matters. The iiamoH ot the members assigned

Cu: KL.v.Mi. O.. May 8. Great excitement
exists lliioiighoui the .Mahoning
over the present .situation of the iron
inaiket. At Youngsniwii, j'ile, 'and
su'veral other point? a number of rt'lliii);
mills havo shut down, and business men
(.enerally along the .Mahoning lliver fed
greatly depressed. Manager Williams, of
the big iron firm of Brown. I'onuell & Co..
two of whose nulls at oungstowu have
shut down, said to-day ' The trouble
is owing to the condition of the iron
market. We will till ordois only at Jl.'.i'i.
when purchasers say they can got iion for
S1.W). We have plumy of orders if we
would fill them at that pi lcc. but iron cannot
bo sold at these tiguies without ruin to
tho manufacturers. Tlic outlook is anything
but encouraging. Tho workmen
seem determined to resist any reduction,
and if they do all the mills will be compelled
to close. We would not stop at nil
if we could got our price lor iron, and will
undoubtedly stay closed till a reduction is
mado in the cost of manufacturing or the
price of iron advances. Wo are refusing
orders at any price to bo filled after Juno 1.

St. Louis, May 8. Judge Van Wagcncr,
of tho Criminal Court, in charging tho
grand jury yesterday, said that if tho law
against dueling had been violated it was
their duty to indict tho offenders, and
added : " Tho day has gono by when this
semi-barbarous custom can bo either tolerated
or vitalizod into respectability, and
tho offender deserves no more morcy thav
any other criminal." This part of tho
chargo grow out of tho fact that a
attornoy of this city recently sent
a clialleugo to an equally limb
of tho law.
