FATTY WAIiSH AND THE TOMBS.
Theßarjjain Which KesnUcd in His i|>|)ointiunnt as W.irdon. New York, Jan. 15.—That pustule on the body politic of New York, Mr. ‘•Fatty” Walsh, who, to the astonishment of the respectable portion ot the population, was recently appointed warden of the Tombs through a bargain made by ex 31ayor Cooper and otters of the “swallow tail” Democracy, still retains his place despite all the clamors of public decency. He is a t&i, jut oratit, audacious schemer, who ears; “I'm a respectable c tizen, 1 am; them ; z knows me hasn’t anyt'ii ig agin me.” He was formerly a i;amtiler and was indicted by the grand jury. And yet he was recommended for his present position by District Attorney Mar tine, who is prosecuting the boodle Aldermen. 1 mention this rose of New York politics because nearly every large city bus its ’•Fatty” Walsh. He owes his success in city politics very lareely to his attention to the Italian ele ment of the sixth warn. He was the boney-tongued of ungrammatical pio neers among the bronzed and macaroni loving so: so! Italy, and they fondly designate him signor Fatta Wallash. It may be of interest to glance at the scene oi this Celtic FalstatTs peculiar triumphs. The centre ol ibV.-ixtn ward swarms with Italians ‘j.gns in Italian are displayed over o'any of the shops; there are cigar stores, liquor saloons, groceries and laun dries kept by the degenerate sons of the land of Garibaldi and Mazzini. of Michael Angelo and Savonarola. There are several buildings, moreover, de voted almost entirely to Italian organ grinders, some of wh'di accommodate as many as fifty of tneso foes of harmony and the auditory nerves, not to mention some two dozen monkeys, who cuddle up like intants to their masters on the hard pallets, and lonn a curious feature in a scene that might better be pictured wita the dark lines oi a Rembrandt than re vealed in the clear light, of day. It Is a scene that suggests ihe unspeakable squat >r and filth of the dark ages, wheuce Issue odors that rival the tabled smells of Vulcan’s stithy. SOME WHO UNDERSTAND ENGLISH. Very few oftne lower class of Italians can speak Etn lish, and they have lew friends among the Irish and Germans, who are nearly absolute in tb- politics o' the city. In Signor Fatta Wallasb, as 31r. “Fatty” Watsb Is not infrequently dubbed, toe lazzaroni and other Italians of New York have found a strong and zealous advocaie. It he does not under stand Italian tie understands human na ture. As we have seen, his hold upon the Italian vote in triat Gehenna ot New York, the Sixth ward, is one of the grtat secrets o! his success as a politician. He is the triend ol the roughs of a!! nation alities and has the impudence to call a Police Justice ofi the bench for private consultation about miscreants wbo-e cases tbe Justice will be called upon to try, and he always appears lor the pur pose oi defeating the aim of tbe, law. H. had a narrow escape from being elected an Alderman in IS$4, and, i believe, now congratulates himself on bis deteat, for it was tiie boaid of i hat year who a 1 e now stigmatized as the “noodle” Alderm n. Such is the present custodian oi the pris oners at tne Tombs. It St enis like Beel zebub keeping an eve on bis friends and relatives. I understand be is anxious to have as many bo< d!e Aldermen as pos sibie 8 nt to the Tombs, so that lie can swell his salary by ciiarging them liberal ly for meals Drought in from outside, and he is said to be a ready figuring up the prospective profits lu boarding his old friends whom the law now has by the nape of the neck. BITE OF THE TOMBS IN EARLY DAYS Speaking oi the 1 ombs recalls tbe fact that in the early days of New York tbi site ol that prison was occupied by a large pond called the Collect. It was on this sheet of wateiß surrounded by large maples, oaks and ash trees, that Fitch tried his first experiments with his steamboat about 1790, or some seventeen yeaiß before Fu ton sailed up tbe Hudson river in tbe Clermont. This pond was said in early limes to he unfathomable, and the water risos to this day in the neighborhood of the Tombs and dlls the cellars. It was on this body of water that a son ot George 111., tne Duke ol Keut, then a midshipman in tbe Royal Navv and atterward lather of the pres ent Queen of England, had a severe fall while skating. As the city grew up to ward the Collect great pi'es of dirt and debris were thrown into it, and it finally became a nuisance, whereupon the Ci inmon Council oruered the pond, cov ering about three city olgcks, to be titled up. It remained a waste place till aoout 1N35, when the mud, refuse and rubbish, rotting lor years, blossomed into wnat Nathaniel Hawthorne bas called the black flower of civilized society, a prison. Hut no Hester I'rynne, haughty in spite oi that faietul scarlet letter A embla zoned on her guilty breast, has evi r stepped lorth from the greai sombre gate way o! this prison to endure the taunts of an idle eroivd in sti eole crowned hats and to bear the shame, the exquisite men tal torture ot tbe bartiarous pillory; the horde of criminals who find a lodgment in the Tombs are bard and commonplace and among them a murderer is cousin eted a hero. A VOLUME OF ENGRAVINGS. John L. Stevens, who has lately re turned from a toreign lour, puMisned a volume of engravings which comprised some ol the gloomiest structures known to Egyptian architecture, and it was from this bodge.podg oi Hie ancient schools that the City Fathers chose tbedesign lor the new prison. I stands today a gray granite structure in the Egyptian siy.e, ami probably the most repulsive prison in appearance of any in th.s country; there is not a touch to relieve it of its sullen gloom; of its begrimed, mean and cnllliug aspect. It occupies a solid block, and what a history might be written <u whut had occurred, what has been suf fer and, in that circumscribed ares! Mur der-rs too liiauv to enumerate nave marched to tho gallows, taken their lasi look at the zkv, shi'ered in the cold oi early winter morning* or felt the m ckery ol a day in June ere tuey took the laud leap that kit them in that mysteri ous bourne whence none return; criminals of all sort*, male ami feinnle, have telt tbe Iron grasp oi the law in this dungeon, and among the more recent was a well-dressed, juunty-looking man m a shining beaver v um who lind ext-roisi il not a little power iin the city. It was Henry IV. Jaelin-'. I once Vice Fiesideut ol the Hoard of Al dermen; stdi another was the Iron herved ex-Alderman Arthur McQuade. whose cuurrge In the hour that saw him a leinn won a certain sympathy front those who knew that tbe sentence was just. One of the executions at tne Tombs w inch 1 remember most vividly was that ol John Real Tears ago. James U’Brien, then Sheriff of New York, was un old Political friend ot Real, who was brave enough to shoot down a policeman Iroin behind, but who had so little real c ur a.e mat he had to be halt earned to lb fallows in an Intnxican il siato on the uioi ning that his old irh nd was obliged •>y tne mandate of the law to see him banged, it would laket>o much *i ao* 1 , however, to indulge in any adequate reietonce to the past of this grim old fitbrai charnel house. AN EXECUTION IN 1823. Ever since us erection tho execution ol Cr| ttiinnls has taken place there. Ire 'in .# to this nil executions took place at * Point not far from C*> per Institute, on tbe ~a gl Hide. A prominent -bipidOE merchant now living uw an execution there in 182 J.

There were high hills In the tieigoborhood then which have since been leveled in the phenomenal growth of ms city, and from tlms", as the executions took place In the open air, there was every opportunity to witness the fearful spectacle This infrequency ol executinns.however.helongs to a lortner period of New York. Within the last few years there have been as manv as four murderers in the Tombs at once under s-ntence of death. The public, from the day that it was finished, about 1940, has always called it >he Tombs, although its official designation is the Ciry l’rison. One of the most curious events In lt his tory is tho installation as Warden of that human pponv of the Sixth ward. Mr. “Fatty” Walsh. Oscar Willoughby Riggs. MAKING HONEY. Visit to the Bureau of Knjjraving and Printing. From tho Waohinq'on 1 'ritic. In point ot fineness of workmanship, delicacy and beauty of finish and diffi culty of counterfeiting, the hank note en graving turned out by American en gravers is not equaled by the work of any other engravers in the world. At a time w hen the Bank of England was using rude wood cuts for the printing of its notes. American engravers had already made rapid strides in the improvement of en graving by the introduction of copper plates for printing notes. The signal im provements in tbe art of eugraving have been made bv Americans, and it is Ameri can ingenuity that has brought the art to such perfection that to-day the notes and bonds of fifteen European and South American nationalities are printed in the United States. The work for these coun tries is done by the several bank note en graving companies in New York city. A model of system, The bank notes, greenbacks, bonds, sil ver certificates and gold certificates and revetine stiVnipe used by the United States are printed at the United States Bureau of EneraYingaart Printing in this city. Tho nnveau is a model of system, and the immense force of 9(10 employes work as one person. Tbe bureau is now engaged principal I v in vetting out the new goid and silver certificates, which will be the handsomest production ot the engravers’ art ever turned out, and will be next to impossible to he c unterfeited. The en gravers have been busy tor months on the plates, giving the most careful attention to details of finish, in which lies the saiety from counterfeiting. THE SILVER CERTIFICATES. The denominations of silver certificates are sl, $2 and $lO. Tne $lO certificate is adorned with tbe portrait of tbe late Thomas A. Hendricks, set in a square panel, an entirely new design in bank note printing. Tne Pack of tbe note is a solid mass ol lathe-work surrounding the let ti rs and numbers describing its denomi nation. Thesl certificate bears the por trait of Martha Washington (a copy of Smart’s famous portrait) set in a frame oi intricate lathe work. This is the first tune a woman’s portrait has ever ap peared on a government hank note. The general workmanship ot tbe note is beau tilul, and the counterfeiter who can imi tate it w ill be a prodigy ot skill. Tne face of tne $2 certificate bears a portrait .of Gen. W. S. Hancock in the full dress uni form ot Major General of the army, and, with numerous new features of the en graver’s skill, will be a handsome note. AN INTERESTING WORK. All the notes are profuse with lathe work. consisting of designs composed ot curved lines of geom trical precision made on a rnaohine. A lathe costs $5,000 and upward, and cannot be bought by ir rosponsinle parties. The process of en graving plates and printing money is an interesting one. The bureau has a staff ot engravers representing a selection from the skill of the country. Tuey are paid salaries of $8 a day and upward, and are sure of life-long employment as long as they preserve their skill. The engraver takes a plate ot soft steel and covers It with wax. Upon this is transferred the portrait or the vignette to be engraved. He scratches tbe lines of the portrait on tbe wax and puts the plate in a batn oi acid, which eats into the steel through the Hues out in tho wax. Tbewixiis ibeu removed and toe plate touched up. Next, the plate is put in a fumanee and hardened. A cylinder of soft steel is rolled over the plate, leaving the portrait in outline on the cylinder, which is then hardened, and is called a die. From this cylindrical die any number of plates can be made. Another plate bearing the lathe-work and figures jis made in tbe same manner, and alter both are “proved” and carefully inspected by the superin lendent, tuey are sent up stairs to the printer. THE PRINTING PROCESS. Elates for several notes are made on one large sheet of steel, so that a number of notes can be primed with one im pression. The printer has a young lady assistant who feeds tho press anil takes out the work, car. Hilly examining each piece lor detects. Th re being two colors ot ink on a noie, it must be printed twice. Usually tbe tint or outside edge ot lathe work is printed, alter which the she t is sent up and and ii and, then dampened for sev eral hours and sent back to the printer to nave ;he pom alt or vig lie. to put in. i hen it i-, sent to the numbering division, where the number ot the note is inserted, thence it goes to a lady operating a litile ma chine which clips oil the while edges. It is then pitt under a powerful hydraulic press anil smoothed out, after which it is ex .m'ltbtl and sent to the Treasurer of the Uniteu.lVates. When be affixes the great seal to the note it is a legal tender. Or, il a na io uil bunk note, it is sent to the hank and ibc tcgi: atur* s of tl.e President and Castii r atemier it a legal tender. PAPER USED. The paper upop whleti the hank notes arc priui. disof n peeulinr texture. Ills made in a mill at Dalton. .Mass., presided over by government officials. During the making of tne paper litile silk threads are inserted in tbe labric by a secret process, appearing like r, a and blue ink marks on tne surface. By a perfect system ol checking ami r ce pting at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, every sheet of paper and sheet oi money is accounted for, and if one d,s appears its mss can be located at once, When a printer is given the paper to print, he receipts for It, and wnen lie prints it, it is sent to tbe examining divi s on, carelully counted and receipted lor. Each printer is furnished a blank pass ev.ry morning, ana on this is entered the number ol she w v.lven bun, the number ne returns, and a half dozen p ople affix Uielr initials to the pass, snowing tbe cor rect return ol the paper CHECKS ON DISHONESTY. This pass is shown the captain of the w.iteli ut tho door when the printer quit* work, and be is not allowed to leave the building unless the pass is filled out. Tho primed money, the unfinished sheets and nil dies and plates are turned over to the custodian ol the vault each evening, anil he receipts lor them. They srelocksd op in the immen.-e vaul , which has two large iron a id steel doors, one ol wbl h lias a time-luck. The two doors have dif iment combinations known to two dii p-iviii people The time-look is set at I p. m., and i he door cannot be onened until the next morning at *. These precautions arc luk n because .here are requeillU stored 111 ihe vaults millions of dollars of finished money and Imnds and the com i,|, to plate* ior printing them. All tbe detadsof ibis immense priming bureau move wiih the regulaiity and precision of clock work, and any nregularity in any one printer’s returns would he telt as readi v as the latiure oi a cog wheel to v. ora in a watch case. SAVANNAH MORNING NEWS: TUESDAY. JANUARY IS, ISS7. Women tn Guatemala. ftotn tho l/otuo Jonmot. Oil the eastern frontier of Guatemala, in British Honduras, there is a stretch of beautiful country very ratcly visited. It is 1,150 feet above the level ot the sea, there is lovely park-like scenery, bub bling springs uml brassy Idlis, where herds of cuttle are graziug all day long. Years ago that was the site of a great empire; here and there foundations ot massive stone wails rise out of the ground, mementoes ol bygone splendor, while every surrounding bill has its le gend. The present inhabitants, descendants of the great Maya nation, lead a life of pastoral simplicity, tending llieir flocks and only cultivating the ground enough to supply their actual wants. Intoxicat ing liquor is not allowed among them, w-bile vice and crime arc almost unknown. The lamest village, Santo Tonhlo, nas about 1,500 inhabitants, and ts called the capital. The government of Guatemala seldom interferes with these villages, the district being regarded as unimportant Indian territory, but each village annu ally elects its own Alcalde. Election day is celebrated with much rejoining, just as it used to be before Eu ropeans caine to America. The Spanish chroniclers tell us that It was then cus tomary for those going out of office to give a banquet to their successors, and at tbe present time tue authorities of those villages alwa\ s spread a banquet electiou day. The entire repast is placed on the table at once, except the tortiyas. Fresh supplies of these are brought steaming hot to the table every few minutes. Only men take part in this feast of the politicians, and boys wait on them. In the evening the hall is cleared for dancing; then the women and girls ap pear. They are dressed in loose, white cotton garments trimmed with colored embroidery, and have bright-colored scarfs around their shoulders. Bulk seems to be their idea of elegance, tor each has several very full skirts,all stiffly starched. Their gold ornaments, ear rings, necklaces, and finger-rings aie very numerous—made iroin ore found in their native soil. Some of the girls are beautiful, though all are short in stature like the men. The musical instrument most used by these people is the marimba, played alter the manner ot a dulcimer, hut made of wood and pieces of bide. The tones of tiie marimba are plaintive, sweet, and melodious. It can be heard at a long distauce in the still night air. The women sit round tbe room, but the men stand In groups. When the dancing is to commence oneof them only advances to tbe middle of tbe floor and nods at the woman he desires for a partner. She leaves her seat and goes to face him, standing a tew teet off. They perform a jig, hardly moving their bodies, though ihe steps a r e varied and rapid; oceasion ally they exchange places, but nevet clasp hands. Without even looking at her partner the woman returns to her seat when the fancy takes her, and tie, with out changing bis position, invites some one else bv a nod, for he is expected to re main on foot till the music ceases. Then another takes his place; so dancing is Kept up until midnight, all conducting themselves with the groatest decorum, but merry peals of laughter are heard now amt again, and.every one seems per fectly happy, chatting gayly as they wend their way homeward in the soit moon light. “Brown’s Bronchial Troche.” Are widely known as an admirable rem edy for Bronchitis, Hoarseness, Couehs and Throat trouoles.
