THE WOMEN AND THE SUPREME
COL'RT OF THE UNITED
CIVIL SERVICE REFORM.
Washi.iuton, D. C. Jan. 18. The war
faro of the senators and members on the
civil-servico reform, was inaugurated by
Senator Carpenter in the senate to-day, in
the presence of overflowing galleries.
Befcroit adjourned the senato presented
the singular spectacle of Morton, Carpen
ter and Sherman assailing the new pro
gramme of the president, and Senator
Trumbull defending. Carpenter said that
the proposed reform would defeat any po
litical party that upheld It. Trumbull re
plied i "Well, sir, I say in my place here,
and I will say it everywhere, that it tho
republican party has not virtue enough in
it to sustain this reform in tho civil ser
vice, that it ought to go down and will go
It is ft safe cstimato to lay that three
fourths of the republican senators and rep
resentatives are opposed to this innovation,
based upon the fact that it utterly destroys
the political patronage which they have
so long cxcrciicd.
Ofllce-holdcru and politicians aro writ
ing to congressmen that tho party will
nevor succeed under tho reform scheme,
nd tho sooner it is nbandoncd tho better.

clauses of the treaty of Washington.
A LITTLE SCHEME.
Secretarv Fish yesterday made an of
ficial visit to the capitol and used his influ
ence to secure tlio favorable action ol trie
houso on a little scheme that has arisen in
his mind. This is to induce congress to
appropriato n. large sum of money to pay
tho travelling expenses of tho Japaneio
embassy, who havo just arrived in this
country, and intend muking a general and
extended trip through it. Why it is that
tho secretary desires to pay mo ohis oi me
Japanese representatives, and at tho snmo
timo pormits a Russian prince, now mak
ing a tour through the country, to pay his
own way, hrs not transpired. Tho wishes
of tho secretary will probably bocomo a
law, and an appropriation win tie made.

Rome (Dtc. It) Correspondence nf the Pll Mall
I mn in a position to furnish you with au
thentic details of the attempts miido by the
emperor of Brazil to bring about peace be
tween the pope and the king of Italy. In
the first interview which took placo be
tween the pope ami the emperor, tho latter
spoke long, warmly, and eloquently on
tho neccibltv ol a reconciliation. Thn
popp, after listening very attentively to
mm. nam mm no w.i very miien surons-
ed to hear such language ucd to him by
the cti'Deror of llrnzll. "I am fm th
nonce," leiilled the emperor, unlv Don
Pedro D' Alcantara, who addresses vou
holiness." "Very well, my dear Don Fedro
U Alcantara, said too pope, "people sav
you are a philosopher, and I blievo it.
Consult your boows, and when you nnd in
any one of them that the day unites itself
with tho night bring tho work to me, and
l shall havo a precedent lor the reconcili
ation you advecatc." To the empress the
pope made himself still moro disagreeable,
and spoke to her sarcastically of her hav
ing acted as cicerone to her husband over
tho roval palnco at Naples, sho beinc tho
daughter of King Francis I, of the Two
Sicilies. "Verily," said his holiness, ''tho
emperor could have discovered no ono bet
ter nualilltd than you, madam, to do him
the honors of tho palaie of your ancestors."
The empress was very much hurt at this,
and did not visit tho popo again even to
take leave of him. But thn emperor returned
to see him immediately before his depart
ure, and commenced once more on tbo sub
ject of reconciliation, and oven went so far
as to say that he would bring Victor Em
manuel secretly to tho Vatican. "I will
get him to come hero in a cab," ho said,
'and no ono will know anythine about ft."
Tho popo was much irritated at this, and
parted vory coldly with the emperor. What
s most original about this aiiatr is, that
tho king of Italy had never authorized
Don rtdro to negotiate an interview be
tween him .nnd the holy father, much less
to drive with him in a cab to the Vatican.

MISTAKEN FOR A JUDGE.
(From (tie Philadelphia Record.)
On Mondav, in the supremo court room,
tvherfl tlie judpes sat in banc a colored
mnn. who woro n soinowhnt dlcnlfled an-
pearnnce, was leaning over tlio bnlustrado
which separated tho tiublio from tho bar.
It was rumored tbat lio was tho chief jus
ticoof tho supromo court of South Caro
liliu; this icleii unteririR tlio licuci of a
prominent mombor of tlie legal fraternity,
becauso tho colored individual seemed to
listen witli unusual attention to tho
learned nrgumcnta in a caeo then ponding.
Tlio rumor reachod tho cars of tho judges
and ti dignified subrosa conversation took
placo be'tweon thum, and all cat thoir
eyes on tlio gentleman in black, A mem
ber of tho bar in order to satisfy himself as
to tho stranger, stepped up to him, and in
tlie natural or practical modesty or tho
profession, said in a somewhat subdued
"Sir," "aro you a judgo from Soth Car
olina?" "Sail ?" replied thocolorod man.
Tho lawyer repented the question in a
louder tono of voice, which elicited the
"No. sir, I'm no judgo; I'm only a lis
tener." The gravo judges in banc endeavored
to suppress a smile, but members of tho
bar wero not quite so fortunate,
Bffi.On ono of tho recent cold nights a
NaJiua liuly put hor two boys In bed in a
cold room, tucked them up. and sat down on
tho edge of tho bed to hear them say their
prayers. Johnny, ngid 7. got through all
right, and cuddled up to Willio aged 0, who
iiau ion commciiceu ins prayor. rrescntiy
Willio began to hurry, the words came
faster than ho could distinctly utter thorn,
aud tho prayer ended thus: "I pray tho
Lord my soul to keep 1 amon take your
nana on i ram mo or I'll warm your oar
for you. Johnny was trying totioklehim.
