He does not appear to like strongly-accented attentions from the ladies. An exchange says that a young lady of Norfolk was so agitated while dancing with tho grand duk < that she tainted in his arms. The scion of nobiii ty merely passed her over to one of the old ladies with the remark: "Toodem thinovitch," and secured another partner. This expression simply conveyed his sympathy for the unfortunate young lady; and then, with characteristic Cossack gayety, besought another partner, ami was soon whirling away on the light sarcastic toe.

SCANDALOUS DE Dôcvt L'cUkncc of an Offtr to Sell the Vote of Louisiana to the Jiiffh&t Bidder. [Spcclul despatch to the N. V. World.] Washington, January 31—The grand explosion ofthc hidden rascality of the Louisiana Returning Board came out to day in the evidence taken by the House Ccmmittee. It the self-coulcsscd forgeries and frauds of the Republican witnesses were yesterday deemed grave artd impor tant, tliere is nothing which bail give full cflfectto the startling testimony of to-day. It was no more nor less tlian the detailed account of the oder of this infamous Re turning Board to certify to the honest turns of that .Stale for Tilden and Hen dricks, and not to fraudulently report them lor Hayes and Wheeler, for a sidération of $1,000,000. J.H. Maddox, Republican internal revende agent, rep resented Wells and the board to Colonel J. T. Pickett who was to raise the provided it could be raised, from the Democrats. Jlc communicated with Mr. ill-will, Chairman of the National Demo cratic Committee, who informed Colonel Pickett that it was the third overture of the kind, though this seemed authenti cated, but like the others, he spurned it, and requested Colonel Pickett to reply to choso who started negotations through him, that the Democratic party believed they had honestly carried Louisiana, an did not propose to buy themselves through or be cheated out of that result. The witness Maddox persistently refused to tell all he knew,but he told enough,which was corroborated by Colonel Pickett, to make the evidence of the conspiracy quite complete. It was curious to note the ef fect of these revelations to-day on the average Republican mind. Guo Repub lican member of the Ilousf-, with the white ofhis eye in fine frenzy rolling, de clared that, after all, those Louisiana of ficials must be a scaly set. THE EVIDENCE. re con a money Washington, January Jl.—The Select Committee on the Privileges of the House bad before it to-day two witness38 who gavo testimony of a highly important character affecting the integrity of the Louisiana Returning Board. The follow ing is a full report ot the mc|st important af the testimony : John T. Pickett, sworn arid examined by Mr. Field: Q. Htate your age, residence and oc cupation. A. I am fifty-three years of age; I am an attorney at law; I am a resi dent of Washington, I). C, Q. Have you in your possession a letter from Mr. Well«, of the Louisiana Re turning Board z A. I have, Q. Will you produce it? A. ^Handing it to Mr. Field.) It is what purports to be his handwriting; I am not familiar with it. Mr. Field read the letter ai follows: N»w Oulka.ms, November 20, 187(5. To— [Name cut oatj— Mtw Orleans, La, My Dear Sir. You fully understand the situation. Can you not advise with me relative thereto? Yours very truly, Signed) J. Madison Wells. ÇL State the circumstance« of your re ceiving this letter and what was done in relation to it A. It will be rather a long story, but I shall begin at the begin ning. Mr. Field—Do so. Witness—On the Thursday preceding tho last Sunday of November, tho 22d, a gentleman with whom I have been ac quainted for more than a quarter of a century came to my office i|i the city, he having just arrived from Louisiana,where I had known him quite intimately a quarter of a century ago, and gavo me a full history of the state of affairs there arising out of the late Presidential elec tion. He said Mr. Lawrence—I object to your stating what this stranger said. The witness—Then my Htory will be nearly at an end. Mr. Field to witness—1 auk you to say how the letter came into your hands,and what you did under it. You may go on and state anything of that sort. The witness—The person referred to is subpoenaed and is now in this build ing. Q. Whom did you see ifi New York? A. I endeavored first to see Mr. Hewitt; ho was out of town that day (Bunday),but a note was sent in the evening that he bad returned, and 1 did uotjiee him; pre viously I saw Mr. John Morrissey, ho said that he would buy these fellows as readily as he would buy pig«, or words to that effect, in which I coincided with him in the interest of 40,000,000 of people but he said that we all knew Tilden was elocetd, and that ho had just received, or the public had just received, information from Oregon which made it unnecessary to resort to any such measure; that was about the purport of my conversasion with Mr. -Vorrissey. Q. Did you him? A. No1 Q. Did y ou see 3/r. He witt?. A. In the evening I saw Mr. Hewitt and wont over »he whole story to him, to which he listened very patiently and kindly; he said that this was the thini proposition of this kind that had been made to hi m on the part of tbe Returning Board in Louisiana, but that mine appeared tho plausible and authentic, and that, under no circumstances, Would ho en tertain any such proposition: that if we bought them now we would have to buy them over hereafter: that if the country wasgoing into civil war wo «fig let it come, and bo done with! receive auyjinoqey from ot any. bt as well t; but that lie had no apprehension of any such re sult, and the country knew that Govern or Tilden was elected; that was about the purport of our conversation; I said that f Iliad $560.000 I Would lay down the $500,000, which was the minium "oile" those gentlemen wanted, and be content ed to live the remainder oil my days on the $50.000, or to live in"sackcloth .and aihes' i f necessary. Q. How many letters had you? A, I had but one letter—that which I have already produced to the committee, ana in order to conceal the name of the party to whom it was addie.-eil cut it out, hut [ have it with me propel ly ident ified. I arranged with him ctrtain jr. iiminnri^s. Q. Did you see the letter to Senator West ? A. I saw a sealed litter ; I did not see its contents, but this gentleman voluntarily staged to mo its contents, thd chief pertioa of which was that the Democrats had to pay $1,000,000. and SECOND EDITION that the Republicans wanted $1.000 Oho to conteract that. Q. The gentleman with whom you had this conversation is, you say, within this building now ? A. He was here this morning. I came up to the capitol with him. By Mr. Liwrence—who is this gentle, man ?A ,1am reluctant to give his name but of course, I shall do so as you re. quire. His full name is Joseph Harri« Maddox. Q. Did he give you any other paper than this letter purporting to be from Wells? A- Nothing in the shape of n let 1er or credential. We made some notes — to the hast* on which he proposed I should endeavor to negotiate tho affair. vj. What were you to negotiate? A I > as there to negotiate, if possible money enough to pay Governor Wells and his fellow-members of the .Returning Board to do what I considered right and proper that is to say, to determine the • State for Tilden ; he informed me that they would give it for Hayes unless they were paid to give it. for Tilden, under winch circumstances I felt perfectly just ified in doing all in my power, lest i might regret it ever hereafter, to attain that great end; The gentleman witi whom I endeavored to make the negotia tion. I am happy to say informed me that had our positions been reversed, if he had been in my place and I in his h wouldbave done precisely what I did.

"He was chosen to the Thirtieth and Thirty first Congress by tb3 Dem ocrats of Berks county, and m 1857 was elected to the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania by the same party; but his decisions given there foi more than ten years were singularly fret frmn partisan bias. In 1862 he separ ated from his democratic brethren o the court and decided the nations conscription act constitational. and the same year he voted for Curtin for Governor against Judge Woodward, bis associate on the bench. In 1865 be separated from the republican Judges and joined the democratic judges in deciding the deserter disfranchis ing act of Congress unconstitutional He made no public declaration of his position in the presidential contest o; 1864 between Lincoln and McClellan, -bulbe was regarded as a war demo crat with republican sympathies gen erally, in 1868, having resigned from the bench he quietly hut avowedly favored the election of Grant. That Judge Strong will be wholly unrelia ble as the oracle of any political pa: - ty on the commission is quite true, and the same we believe to be true of every one on the bench."

A Lonuou dispatch says rayai advice of January 17 report that the brig Hed wig lauded at that place the crew of th American ship Dakota, Captain Da> from New Orleans December 17 for Liv erpool. The Dakota was struck by light ning January 7, during a thunder storm, when 400 miles from tlie Azores, and was soon in flames. All hands, including the captain's wife and two children, took to the boats. Several of the officers and crew burned their hands badly while lov ering the boats The party numbered SO in all. They were well supplied with provisions. After being in the boat« three days they were picked up by tbs Hedwig. The ship's papers were saved. The Dakot a was ol 1,670 tons. SOWING CLOVER ON GRASS. The Agricultural editor of the Reading Times and Dispatch says: Farmers ma» succeed in making clover grow on gra^s lands, without plowing the land, it the sod is not thickly covered with grass, open in places between the tufts, so as to admit of harrowing in the seed. Saw tlie seed quite thick as early in the spring as the ground will admit, and bo dry. Then run a fine tooth harrow over th« Land till the seed is covered, or the mo-* of it mixed with the loosened earth then roll the laud, and in due time o crop of clover will appear; but it will l»» in danger of being smothered by th* grass, perhaps; and if it be, when tb** grass has grown high enough to be cur by a mower, it should be cut and feed green to stock; and if plaster be sown on the land, as soon as the clover appears it will get such a growth in a few week'» that the grass cannot check it. Field' that are not well-covered with grass, may be improved in this manner, or other grass seed may be sown instead of clover, and several kinds of grass seed would be better than one kind. Perhaps it would be better to pasture such land' till the new seeding gets a good gr rather than cut the grass when itls Sow inches high. There is no good rea son why farmers should not experiment in this way sometimei. Then let them teed down a plowed field to grass nexr spring, without the usual grain crop. ( have known a good crop of hay to bn cut the first season on fields thus soèded and be sure that you seed with several kinds of grasses, which produces a firme sward, and one that will stand tho frost of winter better than one kind will. owth but a Kalsomine vs. Whitewash.
