A. orresiondent -tells the folkew
.ng story of a well known railrond
officer whose headquarters are not
one thousand miles from Pittsburg:
His private secretary found it nec
essary to leave home for a few days
on business, and it was oarrasniged
that a younng man should take his
place in Mr.-- -'s office during
his absence. The secretary liav
ing a kindly feeling for the young
man suggested that lie had better
be on hand early each morning, as
his lord and master was an
early riser. Our friend (who had
been in the habit of going to his
office about 8 A. I.) made an ex
tra effort and appeared at 7 o'ceock,
reandy to disclarge his duties.

is something pleasant and of soft

incapable of any such by-play,.

but women have always some little a
ha'ndiwork ready to fill the tin,
gaps of every vacant mament. Ar
queen, no doubt sometimes plic s

it as adroitly as her pen, sending
the little instrument gleaming along

IEP'ORT OF THE HOGSE COMMITTEE.
WASirsNGTON, April 5.--The report of
the sub committee of the I[ouse conunit
tee charged with the consideration of tihe
methodt of electing the Presiduent and
Vice Preidenl t was submittoted to the fuill
committee last night and( agreed to by one
majority. The most important feature
in their proposed asmeandmaert to tmhe con
stitution o the U:nitetd States is that the 1
.t..ctr -mt dv . tan id i rti, t jq it m th rt,,,"
each person voted for s 1'residunt re
ceives in any State shall le ascertained
by multiplying his entire popular vote
there by the whole number of the electo
ra- votes of the State and dividing the
product by the aggreate popular vote of
the State for all persons voted for as
l'resident, and the quotienlt shall be the
nnmber of electoral votes ald fractions
thereof to which such persons shall be
entitled, using for such fractions three
decimals and no more. The amendmentlll llt
is designed to preserve the relative pow
cr of the smaller states. The colmmittee
.say on this subject : "The small states
are now overslotiglwd by the present
electoral system.- It has happened ial
ready that the vote of New York cast
sqlid by the general ticket has decided
the election by.a few thousaul, majority
and has ziot only settled the question for
the niillion voters of the state of New
York, but against a majority the. other
way of eight millions -who are voters of
the United States. The practiciilef.aet of
the electoral system has been to iuee'ase
the relative importance and power of the
large states, and 'the practice of voting
bygeneral ticket Watt intrgdunod by the
large states for that. puirpose, and when
ntroduced all were compelletl to follow
it." ReDresentative:-oiaton, of t'the com
mittee, proposed an Qobindnmelit in situ-.
stance that ill case of a dispute in any
state as to the electoral vote, the election
shall bio deciedo by the highest judicial
tribunal of such stiate, and the vote shall
be counted unless both houses shall ex-,
chule it. Although no serious objection
was intcrprosed by the committee to this
a-nieuaost.t the ooihmanitce did not vote
on it. It is the opinion of the mucmbers
of the commlittee that the proposed
amendment to the constitution will not
receive.the approbation of Congress, two
thirds of both bratiches being required
to propose it to the states for adoption.
