There remain but two pegs on which
to hang a hope that Ouitcau will not him

save the application to the supreme court
for a writ of habeas corpus, on tho ground
that the court below had no jurisdiction
over the case, and, when this shall have
failed, an application to the president for a
pardon on tho ground of iusatiity. Both
expedients will bo resorted to, and both
will undoubtedly fail.

There are now but seven cases of small
pox left in tho city hospital, the last one
takeu there was a negro woman living out
in the barracks near the Mississippi levee,
and who had persisted in nursing her
daughter who was an iuiuate if the hospital,
afflicted with the disease. She claimed to
have had th small-pox once and it was
thought therefore that she could be permit

to herself; hut subsequent events eeiu to

Frank Jenkins and George Ellis, the
two negro keepers of gambling houses up
town, were again brought before Magis
trate Comings yesterday morning to have
their esses concluded. The evidence wus
all taken the day before, and was very con
clusive against the defendants. The argu
ment lasted nearly all yesterday forenoon,
and at the eud the court promptly assessed
a fine of ten dollars and costs in each, mak
ing a total of something over sixteen dol
lars, which each had tn pay for commit
ting a crime out of which they realized per
haps hundreds, and to convict them of
which it took Officers Martin and Mtban-
ny over three weeKS or cominueu ciose
watching aud hard work. A class of crim
inals wh' succeed so well in evading just
punishment, by a refusal of their pals to
testify against them and by perjured evi
dence, as tho gamblers of this and other
communities, do and always have done,
should, when convicted, be made an ex
ample of lor the benefit of their pals, who
watch them to see whether or not the
courts really dare convict. Frequent ac
quittals and exhibitions of leniency have
made them bold and defiant, and freo in
the use of all manner of questionable means
to defeat the efforts of officers to bring
them to grief. A few, quick convictions,
and fines adequate to the enormity of the
crime, would have a most beneficial effect,
both insuppieBsing gamblers ami perjurers.
To assess the lowest fine in a case where
guilt is so conclusively proven as it was in
tho cases in question does not give evidence
of a very strong .desire ou the port of a
court to suppress gambling, nor does it
tend to intimidate tho guilty men,
who are perhaps even now engaged in the
nefarious business just as extensively and
confidently as ever.
One who was there goes into ccstacies
over the little reception -given by Mr. Par
sons to the graduating class at his rooms
Monday night. The rooms which are up
stairs in Mrs. Breibach's building on Wash
ington avenue, above Twentieth street, aro
splendidly furnished, and were, in honor of
tho occasion, beautifully decorated with
greens, and flowers, and plants, and Chinese
lanterns. Six of tho graduates and their
escorts, and Miss Ada V. Scarrett, were
present. Music and song opened tho even
ing's entertainment. Some minutes were
spent iu pleasant, verbal intercourse, and
then tho host brought forth a largo and
varied quantity of fire works, and tho littlo
company repaired to tho balcony where a
magnificent illumiuatioti was had. Return
ing to tho parlors nil were iuvited to sit
lowu toalittlo table, neatly furnished, and
supplied with cake, strawberries, ice cream
and other delicacies, which would have
been irresistable to the most fastidious ap
petite. But tho greatest and pleasantest
surprise atill awaited tho littlo company.
All were seated about tho parlors engaged
in entertaining chat, thoroughly satiated
with the pleasures bo liberally provided by
the host, when that gentleman suddenly
burst into the room with the table upon
which were arranged in a tasteful manner
a number of little silver and glass orna
ments, each labeled with the name of ono
of the graduates, and for Miss Scarrett
there was a huge, elegant boquet of flowers.
Though the cntortainmeut had so
far been a series of agreeable surprises, this
capped tho whole, and the young ladies
were for a time unable to find words with
which to appropriately- acknowledge the
compliment. But it was finally done and
after more music on the piano, moro talking
and laughing, mora refreshments, and
more discharge of fire works the .ittle party
left for home. Those who took part
in the affair will doubtless recall it for
many years to como with feelings of grout
Tho city council met again at the coun

was purely, painfully routine, Perhaps tho
only act of more than ordinary importance

Blake, of tho new ordinanco reducing the

includes all that portion of tho city enclosed

A SL'MMEU VISITOR.
What with April frosts, chilly spells in
May, and oilier abnormal meteorological
phenomena, the seasons of the year 188 are
in such a confused state, that anything w hich
may be interpreted as a sign of their regu
lar sequence is welcome on that account
alone. This is one reason why we are glad
to receive the Summer number of Eliriehs'
Fashion Quarterly. Another reason is, that
the book is full of interesting mutter, and is
decidedly the most agreeable melange of
literature and fashion that has been issued
from the press in a long time. Tho cos
tumes illustrated are sufficiently diversified
in style and cost to enable every lady reader
to suit both her tasto and pocket; and a
host of well executed woodcuts serves to
show each fair subscriber the last sweet
things iu bonnets, the latest efforts in para
sols, the prevailing styles of fans, and so on,
through the entire range of that delightful
science which the fair denominate "Shop,
The purely litetry features of the maga
zine are excellent. Eben E. Hex ford's poem.
"The Patter of Little Feet," has a tender
pathos ot which the greatest of our poets
might have felt proud. "The Editor at
Home" discusses current topics with a quaint
htluior in which a strain of earnest purpose
is unobtrusively apparent; and a charming
illustrated story, entitled "Hard Times," en
chains the reader's interest from end to end.
Nor is purely instructive literature neglec
ted; the lejsons in China-painting are con
tinued, and a beautiful design for a tile is
illustrated, with full directions for execu
tion; an illustrated article on outline em
broidery introduces a pleasing occupation
for Rummer afternoons; and the laws aud
methods of archery and lawn tennis are de
scribed in a brace of well written articles.
Altogether, we think tho Fashion Quar
terly is a success. Its cost is only fifty cents
a year, and if its publishers propose to give
for that price four books of equal merit
with tho ono before us, they quite deserve
the success wo wish them. The Magazine

FACTS WORTH LOOKING AT.
The course of the Republican representa
tives in Washington deserves very Rerious
attention. Tho first step that was taken in
tho house of representatives, tho election of
tho speaker, nhowed tho character of tho
majority and the sort of influences they were
prepared to bow to. Keifer, a dull, stupid,
ignorant man, totally unfit to be intrusted
with the duties of tho speakership, was elec
ted by a combination of members, mainly
stalwarts, who, though they had seen Gen.
Grant go out of office in disgrace, clearly
show themselves as insatiate for plunder
now as when they flourished under Granl'B
friendly guardianship. Keifer onco made
speaker, the leader of tho dominant party,
who had directed tho choice, promptly
Bhowed himself. This leader was not tho
ablest Republican debater, not tho most
skilled parliamentarian, nor the most rep
utable party manager. Ho was tho keen
est and most experienced robber among all
the thieving hordo that has been devel
oped and supported by tho Republican par
ty during its protracted administration ol
tho national government. Secor Robeson
had been tho boldest nud most successful
of them all, and the leadership of the party
could have beeu given to such a man for no
other reason than because they thought
him the best fitted to conduct their plans
to success. With Biich a loader the course
of the republican majority is easily under
stood. To enact wise laws aud provide for an
honest, economical, patriotic administra
tion of our affairs is not their purpose.
They will not give up a dollar of the great
surplus fund of the one hundred and fifty
millions that will this year bo poured into

the treasury. They w ill hear of no light
ening of the crushing burdens of taxation.
They stand ready to adsorb all this im
mense and unnecessary surplus in extrava
gant appropriations, and in hucIi jobs as
Robeson and his friends are trying to fasten
on the governineiif.
The controlling party is debauched bo
yond redemption. It upholds extravagance
mi 1 robbery in all the public departments,
and unblushingly follows and supports all
sorts of dishonest schemes. Within the
last year the two most disreputable sets of
political renegades, the repudiators of Vir
ginia and the tainmuny men of New York
city have been received into its fellowship.
There is no form of dishonesty it will not
bargain with for the sake of keeping itself
The Republican party is no longer a party
of tho people; nor are democratic ideas its
vital principle. It is a pirtyof centraliza
tion, insatiate ol power; a party of corrup
tion and dishonesty. A party that could
quietly range itself behind tho leadership
of tho foremost of public robbers, and
tolerate tho prominence of such a man in
its councils, deserves condemnation. It
ought to be turned out!
