In tho chairs wero a half hundred little colored girls of all shades of brown from almost whlto to obouy, yellow, cop. per colored, sari brown, ecru, all with needles In their pudgy fingers, some with pricked thumbs thrust between their thick lips and all hard ut work. In the north basement room wero an other half hundred litllo girls, not all so llttlo either, for some of them are old enough to wear long dresses, all hard at work, too. Flitting about among thu girls wero ten teachers, and sitting in u chair on ti low plntfqrm at tbo head of tlio room wns a pleasant-faced, white haired woman that the children showed their work to one at a tlmo. Tlio lady with tho whlto hair was Mrs. Judgo Aldis. and tho negro girsl composed St. Luke's Indiiftrial School.

Mrs. Judgo Aldis is thu president of tlio school, and both tho school-rooms wore tinder her kind eyes. SOMU OP THE TATllONKSSES. Tho teachers flitted about from ono to another of the llttlo girls.

"If our young colored peoplo wero taught to work, instead of being taught latin and Orouk, it would bo much better for them, Colored peoplo comu from tho sur rounding farms to this city as to a Mecca. Thoy find all tho callings open to colored peoplo overcrowded, and their only resort is to steal. On tho farms through Vir irlnia and Maryland and tbo Carollnns tho negroes are abused iu every posslblo way.; If thoy wero educated in tlio trades thoyj might easily 'liiid employ ment. 15ut thoy have not yet in this city any place to learn trades, and that is what thoy need. They could easily gut alone without thoir Latin and Greek if they wero practical artisans. 'As soon as wo can ralso money to build a building ou our lot next to the church wo intend to establish a thorough industrial school tbat will fit colored children to mako a living at respectable trades. Hut wo have but llttlo money and wo would never havo been ablo to do as much as wo havo for theso colored girls but for tho help of tbesu good hearted ladies who havo cbargo of tho good work."

HOW THU !OVi:itNMINT T.OST TIIK AI'I'ltAISKIt'S OITICI!. IN No Imputation Out. Upon tho Integrity of Mr. .llaMiilllii IIo Will, llnmirar, Content thn Itlghl to IHxintn IIIui, Nr.w YottK, Jan. 12. Secretary Fair child has ordered that all special Treas ury agents In tho country who can bo' spared from their posts of duty shnll hasten at once to tills city to assist in n thorough, top-to-bottom Investigation of Iho ollieo of tbo appraiser of tho port. Thu Chief Supervising Special Agent, Colonel Jewell, will nrrlvu here from Washington to-tlay, and Coionul Mont gomery, chief Treasury agent at ltostou, lias been telegraphed for nnd will get hero at the samo time. Mr. T. C. Tingle, tlio special agent, ouo of tho three who investigated tlio eiislom-houso two years ago, will bo iu Now York to meet tliein, As fast as tlio other special agents arrivo they .will bo assigned to tlio resticctivo lines of de tective work for which tlio chief super vising ugent thinks them to bo best titled. This important step is thu result of a conference at tbo custom-house yestor day afternoon lu tho collector's olllco be tween Collector Mngono and Appraiser A. 11. Stearns of Boston, who has tempo rarily taken charge of the oflleo mado vacant by Mr. McMttllln's removal. 1'iVldcncu of a startling natitro ns to the corruption and rottenness of tho ap praiser's olllco under Mr. McMullin's mnnagument wns prcsouted. Thero Is not tbo slightest hint rcllecting upon tho peTOiml integrity of Mr. McMullin, whoso unfortunate position, nftor a long and faithful service of thirty-six ycar3 iu tlio appraiser's oflleo, arouses gonoral sympathy among Uio Custom-IIouso offi cials. Hut tlioro scorns to bo no doubt what ever that tho most gigantic frauds havo been ,'pcrpctrated during the past thrco years, iu which ho has been at tbo bead of the most important ofllcc. Certain merchants havo been favored at tbo expense of the Government and of honest importers, undervaluations on im enormous scale havo been permitted, and tho Treasury Department has been de frauded of millions of dollars. That may seem liko a strong statement, but it comes from nn less a poisonago than Ap praiser Stearns. Examiner Hardwell of tlio AVool Di-' vision will also bo called ou to explain. Tho charge against lilm is that ho lias permitted tho importation of what nro known as woolen noils 11 cheap grndo of foreign wool at llvo cents a pound duty, when at all other ports tho entry of the same grade of goods was not per mitted at less than tun contsduty. Tho investigation will begin to-day as soon as Colonel Jewell arrives. One of the first officials to bo over hauled will bo Assistant Appraiser -Moore of tho Damage Allowanco Divi sion, who Is not to bo confused with Ex aminer Moore of the Tobacco' Division, above relerrcd. Appraiser Staarns when asked in whnt division tho frauds were chiefly pjacttced, said: "SoTiir" Ih"oyr'appca'fcd to liuln tlio sugar department. Ilut wc have not investigated tlio others thoroughly yet. 1 havo discovered Unit an immenso amount of new sugar has boon passed without tho payment of duties. "When I say that millions of dollars were save by tho importers, you will un derstand how great a quantity of raw sugar lias been landed hero with In tho past three years without tho payment of propor duties, This could not havo been dono without collusion on tlio Dart of Government employes," "How was tbo scboino worked? By false tests of tbo sugar. I suppose ami fraudulent samples. Tho coming in vestigation will probably throw moro light upon tho method of the swindle." Meantime, it is said, Mr. McMullin in tends to contest tbo legality of bis re moval, which, ho claims, was not iu ac cordance with section 1,707 of tho Re vised Statutes. Mr. Htowo Iteeoverlng.
