The "Apportionlent (uestion.
5lle~ ber,; of Congress lhave begun to
figure on a new apportiomment on the
basis of the new census, now nearly
completed. So many States are averse
to losing Representatives that it is high
ly probable the number of Representa
tives in the House will be increased to
two hundred and seventy-five. Reap
portionment under that figure, it is
claimed, will make even such States as
Ohio lose a portion of their weight in
the Electoral College and in the Nation
al Assembly, while New York and
Pennsylvania would experience a heavy
decrease. Taking the population of the
country at thirty-nine millions, and it
is found that, tvo hundred and seventy
five as a quotient, the only States that
would lose Represehtatives would be
Rhode Isiland, Vermont, New Hamp
shire and Maine. These figures seem
to b)e those pretty generally agreed
upon as to the number to constitute the
A New York correspondent writes:
" If you live on Fifth avenue you must
pay either $75,000 for a house (perhaps
$100,000), or you must give an equiva
lent rent. Think of $8000 rent to begin
with. You cannot furnish this house
at a less expense than $10,000, and if
pictures and statuary be introduced, you
may treble that figure. To this is to be
added your carriage and span of match
ed hors's, worth $5000 at least. Then
look over your pay roll of servants.
Here is the coachman, who, with his
family, lives in a furnished room over
your stable. He must have $800 per
year, and will have it, even if he" be
obliged to rob the oat bin in order to
meet a deficiency. Next is the footman,
who on public drives is perched on
the rear of the carriage and wears the
same uniform as the driver. He must
have thirty dollars per month and
board. Add to these the cook at sixteen
dollars per month, chambermaid at ten
dollars per month, and nurse (for the
children must not be neglected) at
twelve dollars per month. The house
keeper caps the list, for a fashionable
lady would as soon take care of her
children or do any other unbecoming
work as to attend to housekeeping du
ties, and no housekeeper can be got for
less than thirty dollars per month. I
have only put down a half dozen ser
vants, which is a moderate number;
but when we consider that each may be
a thief, it is as many as you really need,
and if you can meet the expenses and
the peculation which your establish
ment involves, you must have an in
come of twenty-five thousand dollars at
Ex-Presidant Jeffe.ea Javis was in
Jackson last Sunday and while there
addressed the children of the Presby
terian Sabbath School.
The Clarion says of it: Having been
earnestly requested by the Superinten
dant of the school the evening pre
vious, to visit and address the children,
Mr. Davis consented; and just after the
recitation of the morning the distin
guished gentleman entered the room,
accompanied by a few intimate friends.
The school, as a mark of respect, arose,
and continued to stand until he had
taken his seat. After the usual an
nouncenments, and the reading of an in
teresting letter from Dr. J. S. Copes, of
New Orleans, accompanying the pre
sentation of a beautiful silver medal to
the school, Mr. Davis was introduced,
and for a few minutes spoke to the chil
dren words of love, approval and coun
sel. He referred especially to the pres
ence of so many ladies engaged in the
Sabbath School work, remarking that
the women of the land hadul never falt
tered in any goodl work, and how ap
propriate it is that the sex which wa
first at the cross and last at the .elpul
chre, should be thus enlmplloyed in leadl
ing children to the Saviour. At the
close of the exercises, teachers and
scholars \were presetntedl, by classtes, to
MIr. D)avis, andl each retired after a
friendly gras~p, a kind word or affro
tiolnate kiss from thte distinguished vik
