Judge Kelley'a soheme for paying off that part of tbe public debt which becomes redeem able at the option of the government between now and Sept. 1, 1891, has mnoh to commend it, and is said to find favor with many mem bers of Congress. ' He believes that it is beet not to refund the debt referred to bat to pay it as soon as possible, and he thinks it can easily be paid before 1907. The loans which become redeemable between the present time and Sept. 1, 1891, aggregate $1,031,840,900, and include all the outstanding bonds of the government except the 4 per cents., the re funding of which was recently completed, and which will not become redeemable until July 1, 1907. These bonds are the 6 per cents., which incjude the Oregon war debt, $821,300; the 6s of Deo. 31, 1880, $18,415,000, and the 6s of June 30, 1881, $254,164,350; in all, $273,400,550. The 5 per cent, loan, amount ing to $508,440,350, becomes redeemable May 31, 1881, and the 4 per cent, loan, amounting to $250,000,000, becomes redeemable Sept. 1, 1891. Judge Kelly's proposition is to issue no more bonds, but to pay off the $1,031,840,900 in the 27 years intervening between the present time and 1907, by maintaining the sinking fund and purchasing each year one twenty seventh of the total amount above stated, which would require the payment each year, on ac count of the prinoipaljOf $38,216, 330, exclusive of interest. By this plan the sixes would be paid off in six years, the fives in 13 years, and the four-and-a-halfs in six years, thus cancel ing the entire amount of $1,031,840,900 in 25 years, the last or twenty-fifth installment of the principal being $48,216,320. A cal culation on this basis shows that the aggre gate amount which would be paid during the 25 years on account of interest is $596, 441,068, which is about 2r per oent. per an num for the entire amount of the principal thus paid. The aggregate of principal and interest to be paid by this plan ia $1,628,281, 068, and the amount of principal which it is proposed to pay is no greater than that now required to be paid under the Sinking Fund act. . -. Judge Kelley submits figures to show that his scheme would be far more advantageous to the government than Secretary Sherman's proposition to fund the maturing bonds in new four per cent, bonds running thirty years, or Fernando Wood's plan, which provides for re funding with three and a half per cent, bonds running fifty years. By adopting Secretary Sherman's plan Judge Kelley points out that I at the end of thirty years we shall have paid one thousand two hundred millions for inter est alone, aod still be debtors for the entire principal ; while under Wood's plan we shall have disbursed eighteen hundred millions for interest and still owe for the whole prinoipaL Another disadvantage attending these plans is that by them the' government loses control of its loans and could not liquidate any portion ' of the public debt for a period of 27 years un less it went into the market and bought its bonds at the ruling premium. The advantages of such a plan as Judge Kelley's are obvious. By it clean work would be made and the burden of debt quickly dis posed of. But, as the New York Times says, "it most not be forgotten that taxes are paid from the annual savings of the country, and it is a fair question whether a smaller annual drain would not be more advantageous and less a burden upon tbe business of the nation, even if continued for a longer time, than one which should consume a larger amount each year." EDITORIAL NOTES. What a worthless worm can sometimes suo oeed in doing is well illustrated in the case of the cotton caterpillar, which is charged with having caused in the last fifteen years a loss of nearly $200,000,000 to the cotton pro ducers of the South. Small pamphlets containing a biography of Prince Napoleon, with a portrait made up to resemble Napoleon I., are being circulated in great numbers among the French peasantry, and it is pointed out that the circulation of similar lives of Louis Napoleon preceded tbe toup d'etat. Mr. Oliver Dalrymple, of Minnesota, is no one-horse farmer. He says he shall cultivate thirty thousand acres of wheat this year.

The oity editor of the Dubuque Times is a woman and quarreled with the city editor of the Dubuque Telegraph, who is a man. The latter got married the other day, and his female rival wrote np the wedding, the ceremony, the guests and dresses, but omitted all mention of the groom's name.' When the Mayor of Augusta recently or dered the liquor shops, in that oity closed there was immediate inquiry as to how any liquor shops happened to be open in a State where the Prohibitory law was said to be striotly enforced. Neal Dow writes to the Tribune explaining that there ' are still some liquor shops in Maine, but he expects that by and by the machinery of the law will be so adjusted that "when it strikes a rumseller he will think a horse kicked him and will be en tirely squelched by one experience of its pow er." "In all our rural districts and in our smaller towns and villages," says Mr. Dow, "the liquor traffio is absolutely unknown, where it was universal and open before the en actment of prohibition." Tbe teachers in the public schools of Jersey City seem to know their rights in the matter of salaries and dare to maintain them. They have issued an appeal to taxpayers in which they complain that the government of the city, having recently increased Jts laborers' wages 20 per cent., has simultaneously re duced the salaries of teachers 17 per cent thus making both ends meet and touting for votes at the expense of the children of the people. The address of the teachers contains a tabulated statement from which it -appears among other things that in 1876, whioh was year of depression, $184,000; were expended for teachers' salaries, against $145,000 in 1879, whioh was a year of returning prosperity. And this although during 1879 three thousand more pupils were taught than in 1878. The English railway commission, whioh has heretofore interfered in an effective way to secure from the companies under its super vision proper accommodations for passengers and freight, has received a check from the Queen's Bench division of -the English high court of justice. Borne three years ago the corporation of Hastings complained to the commissioners that the station accommoda tions at that place' were defective, and prayed for aa order directing the. Southeastern iiaul way Company to improve. Ihem. -After. a tearing an order was made requiring very ex tensive improvements. Hastings being a popu lar watering-place, mnoh resorted to by inva lids, the company was directed to cover its platforms, to enlarge its waiting-room capaci ty to more than double the present area, to provide a refreshment room, and to do sever al other things for the benefit of passengers. The company resisted the order and applied to the Queen's Bench for a prohibition. The case stood over from the last session, when it was heard, for decision, and the Court has now determined by two judges, Lord Chief Justioe Cockburn and Mr. Justice Manisty, against one, Mr. Justice Lush, that the com mission had no right to issue such an order. The opinion goes the length of declaring that the commission may not require any change in a company's arrangements whioh require the expenditure of money in building, and that the only real authority the commissioners have is to see that as good accommodations shall be furnished to all passengers as are fur nished to any. This decision leaves travellers to the tender meroies of the railway compa nies, and is generally regretted by the Eog lish public It is probable that some law will be passed under which the commissioners can make the companies treat passengers better than tbe Southeastern company seems inclined to at Hastings. - KECET PUBLICATIONS.

Nev Vork Dispatch. COMMUNICATIONS. A Complaint ln tne Interest of Taur . Payers. To the Editor of the Joubnai. and Cousins: It is easy to be generous with other people's money. That the court would have allowed the savings bank receivers all that they claimed there is no reasonable doubt, not because the court is corrupt, but because they were ap pointees aud friends, and they would have made such representations of arduous sacri fice and vastly important services that what ever misgivings the court might have, rather than refuse and give offence, their claim would be allowed. The Governor and Legislature did not think the interest of the depositors safe even- in a court of jastioe, and made a law for their protection And if the interest of depositors is not safe before a court of jus tioe, is the interest of taxpayers safe in the hands of commissioners ? We do not ques tion the integrity or ability of either the court or commissions, but the influence is all on one side Commissions are mostly com posed of men of large incomes and expendi tures, whioh has an irresistible influence in favor of large salaries. j Incumbents and appointees have access to commissioners and can plead their own cause. Taxpayers are unknown and unheard. Commissioners have not moral power to resist the persistent im portunity of interested persons against having their salaries redaeed or to have them in creased. It is easier to yield to their claim, as they may refuse to serve, and then new ones will have to be sought and selected for appointment. When commissioners have se lected and appointed persons to ofBoe it would be a relief to them to have nothing to do with fixing their salaries, for which there should be a large separate committee of not less than fifteen, composed not of officeholders or office- seekers but of wise, prudent and experienced business men wno Know wnat u as to ea money and to pay money to those who have earned it, to carefully consider the labor, re sponsibility and qualifications neoessary for a successful perform an oe of the duties of every office in the gift of the government, and fix a compensation just to tnose who pay and to those who receive pay. Suoh a committee might be nominated by tbe Mayor and Town Agent and oonfirmed by the joint Beard of Aldermen and Selectmen. The present mode of taxation is a most cruel and oppres sive roooery. JN early one-third of all that can be realized from our taxable estate is taken for taxes, and for what? About $100,- 000 is taken for annual interest on debts which ought never to have been contracted. Those who voted $500,000 to the Air Line railroad should have laid an annual tax to raise $100,000 per year for five years and paid it at the time of the road's construction, and not leave it to those who come after to pay principal and interest. All the sewers oould have been constructed in a few years by what is now paid for interest without one dollar of debt. Those who hold office under the government are paid from 50 to 100 per oent. more than they could obtain, from pri vate employment. Is it just to compel tax payers to pay their publio servants more than the fair market value of their services ? But we cannot expect men and women to reduoe their own pay or consent to have it reduotd. The landlord who could have $20 per month a few years ago does not accept of $ 10 now willingly, but it is that or no tenant The mechanic who had $3 to $4 per day does not accept one half the sum now willingly, but it Is that or no work. If the officers of the gov ernment and their supporters, the taxpayers, submit the matter to competent, disinterested appraisers, it will be just and equal and no cause of complaint on either Bide. There are probably 50 men in New Haven every way qualified who would be glad of a situation as assessor at $3 per day. Why pay $5 when the work could be as well done for $3 per day ? So with respect to almost every office in the gift of the government. The work oould be as well done for less money, greatly to the relief of the oppressed taxpayers. Equity Tle Bonaparteo. Agricultural Correspondence of the Hertford Cou rant Did you see the piotures of the Bonaparte family in December Harpers Monthl'y. They make a most curious study in physiognomy. The faces, barring the dresses, are quite American since Americans have grown to comprise about every human feature under the sun, you know. It was lucky for us that these Corsioan adventurers should have left us these portraits, they furnish such a grand chance to understand bogus or genuine royal -ty. The first couple were a most capital match for farm purposes. Napoleon's father was an easy going chap, but his mother was full of "ding." I have seen exactly such a faoe as hers wringing olothes ont of a wash tub without ever a thought of "ambition," exoept to beat the neighborhood in getting her wash on the line first. The reading accom panying these piotures is first rate and goes far to make amends for the "historical" bosh of Mr. Abbott in former volumes of Harper. This writer says the old lady was "boss" as long as she lived. "When her mighty son ruled the continent, she was the only human being whose ohidings he regarded or en dured." She saved money out of the im perial scrape and had it to buy shoes with after her grandchildren came to want. Her husband, we read "was a poor gentlemau of excellent breeding and character," also a "brave soldier," and "ardent patriot," but Letizia Komolino was only a "romantic girl," parentage not stated, and not altogether to blame for tbe dust her half-breed children kicked in the world. The best view of Napoleon was taken when "first consul." with "bauged" hair, as the girls wear their thatch now. That picture has the thunder and lightning all latent in it, and is a grand face for a young preacher or scientist who means to knock old supersti - tions endwise. Among the brothers whom Napoleon un dertook to make kings of, Lucien has the best face Pity he did not try for an honest liv ing, outside 01 tne t rencn speculation. 1 ne rest are a rather cheap lot. They would have made fair farmers or country squires except Louis. He was a sort of a "lunk-head," I be lieve. Napoleon's taste in wives was good, bub he had plenty to select from. Josephine is the popular favorite, beoause she was the least of a queen we may suppose. Maria Louisa was a good sample of the other style tbe product of generations of undisputed royalty, with such a necs as Uie guillotine tnirsted for at one time. Remarkably fine boy, that of here, and makes one sorry he oould not have had a decently humble start in life. ' The Bonaparte women three Bisters of the first emperor were high steppers, spoiled by their opportunities, and taking to thrones where they could get them as ducks take to water. That view of royalty is a queer one. Your bogus kings, when lifted into a high plaoe, take everything they can lay their hands on precisely like common thieves. The anti-royal spirit refuses to take, and refuses to give, too. Tbe last Napoleon had small "hog eyes," but corrected that failing by marriage in the sub sequent generation. He was able enough, but crazy on the empire subject. His snarl ing query of one of our folks who was telling him how rich and strong we were getting as to whether we were going to fight over our property conveys a valuable lesson for farmers. The last empress had a pretty face, but nothing ia it to command respect 'above the common. Poor business, the queen bnsinees is, except on the smallest scale. (Let tbe would-b e queen secure one obedient subject first.) And what a softy that boy of hers was, so bred that he oould think of nothing better to do than hunting Africans. The world is altogether too full of this royal place hunting stock. Get Harpers for December, and see if it isn't. I know a faoe like that boy's which belongs to a butcher-cart. It seems a bit sorrowful, like "Napoleon IV.," and possibly might be brought if meat-buyers were foolish enough to think so to think itself out of place, in vieof its royal pre rogative latent in every worker-egg, you know; but this butcher-boy sticks to his bus iness, and I give him more glory than I can to most of this poor, forlorn, Bonaparte fam ily, now out of date. If Demosthenes ever said "kill the man who wantsto be king," he was right. It is not neoessary to shed any blood though Just drop the foolishly ambitious ones and let them alone, and they will die a natural death. The king business is played out. We shall continually need men, of course, to give point to progress and whet the edge of law ; men to step up and do their duty ; men to fire and fall back, like good soldiers, but we needn't breed any kings or queens. They can always be bought, like milkmen's calves, cheaper than we can raise them. All men and women are kings and queens by instinct if the people will let them be. Napoleon L said one thing which excuses his existence: "The State that is me!" Every citizen should say that. A Trail of Sawdust. A London paper says that a few days sinoe a young lady who is the belle of a certain sub urb not 100 miles from Charing Cross, and is renowned not only for her charming figure and exquisite taste in dress but also for her grace and skill as a skater, was fascinating 8 host of admirers and maddening with jealousy a host of rivals by her feats upon the ice, when she suddenly stumbled and fell. A score of chivalrous gallants sped to her rescue, but before one of them oould reach her she had regained her feet. She was wearing a Canadian skating costume. It unfortunately happened in this case that in endeavoring to save herself the lady ripped her stocking with the point of her skate. She was not, however, aware of the mishap, and glided away from her rescuers with her usual graceful rapidity. As she sped along in . conscious triumph a strange sound reaohed her ears, ominously like suppressed laughter. She cast a quick glance back, and Heave you to imagine her feelings when she saw that her course was marked by a long trail of sawdust. The shapely limb to which the wounded Stocking belonged was fast losing its symmetry, and the secret of its shapeliness stood revealed. Enough; I will draw a veil over her blushes. But I doubt whether she will skate much in publio near London this winter.'1 ScrapinjrJHoars by nacnlnerr. Two young men of Indianapolis have just invented a new machine for scraping hogs, which does the work of many men, and that the most tedious and exhausting , work in the whole packing business. The hog, hook ed by the jaws, is drawn through nine circles of separate scrapers, the pressure of whioh is regulated'by spiral springs, so that every part of the hog, except a small space under the hams, is attacked and cleaned. . The hog then passes out through a chute to the bench, where the cutting up is done.. On Monday last, the machine was first put in operation, and 1,000 hogs were soraped at the rate Of 420 an hour, or seven a minute, and the ma chine can be made to clean 7,000 a day. The ooneern using it say it will' save them $30,000 a year. Child Songs. Tne City Cnild. ST ALFKID TEKNYSOH.

Henry Lascar is an old hunter who has been familiar with the forests in the neighborhood of Lafayette Corners, Penn., for many years. tie came into the village on Monday, the 12th of January, with torn clothes, the leather of his high boots cut into Btrips,his face seamed with ugly gashes, and his general appearanoa indicating tnat lie had been having a conflict with a threshing machine or grizzly bear. He was reticent, at first, in regard to his unseem ly appearance; but, after being warmed alit tle, he said that about ten days ago he had started out on one of his expeditions, with the intention of being away perhaps a week or two. He built a small shanty of hemlock boughs where he spent his nights, sleeping before his camp fire. The warm weather had not melted all the snow in the depths of the forest where he was, and one morning he noticed the footprints of a large animal, sup posing at first that they were those of a bear. But, after closer examination, Lascar knew that a very large panther had passed. Ani -mals of this species have rarely been Been in this neighborhood of late.many old woodsmen believing that they are extinct, not only here about, but throughout the State. Lascar hesitated at first to follow up the trail, but bis hunter instincts got the better of his caution, and he started. Over the pathless wilderness he wandered for several hours, passing at length a place where the animal had caught a pheasant and left its blood and feathers scattered on the snow. The trail was fresh and the hunter increased his caution, moving watchfully and slowly. In a few minutes he stopped in a narrow ravine having high rocky walls on either side, and trees growing so thickly overhead that the spot was in deep shade. The footprints that he had been following all led to a hole in the rocky wall. Standing at a distance he threw a stone into the hole, getting in response a snarl and a hiss that was not over comfortable to hear. After waiting a few minutes, the hun ter climbed up and looking into the darkness of tbe hole, saw a pair of fiery red eyes glar ing at him. Then he raised his gun and with a hasty aim fired. The next instont he was knocked over and before he oould get to his feet again the animal was on him. It seized the gun with its teeth and breaking off the nipple rendered the piece useless. Then,first with one paw and then with the other, the huge beast knocked the hunter about over the snow as a oat plays with a mouse. Lascar tried to draw his hunting knife, but at every attempt he was prevented by a Bharp blow from one of the animal's paws. His face was scored deeply at every stroke, his olothes soon torn into strips, and his whole body cov ered with blood. At last he managed to draw his knife and plunge the blade deep into the bsast's flank. It bounded away a few feet, looked at the hunter a minute or two, and trotted away lifting one hind leg very care fully and disappearing in tbe woods. Lascar bound up his wounds, and after a journey of nearly a day, returned to his home. Tbe Beheading; of Cbinese Pirates Cbinese Prisons and Prisoners. A correspondent writing from Shanghai says: "I went to see six Chinese pirates be headed yesterday. The open square where all the executions take place was filled with Chinese of all ages and conditions, and a few Europeans among them. The prisoners were the most forlorn starvelings I ever saw, and betrayed no more fear at their approaching fate than if they were to be spectators of an execution. A huge Tartar officiated as exe cutioner. He was armed with a native sword, and stood on a small platform in the center of the square. After the criminals, with their hands tied behind, had been taken upon the stage, the executioner took one of the pirates -by the arm, brought him to the edge of the platform, hit him a sharp rap with his hand on the head, whioh caused the poor fellow to bow his head, and then the executioner's sword went up, was poised in the air a full half minute, and with a sweep the glittering blade descended and the poor criminal's head went flying off in one direction and the body in the other. One by one the others met their death in the same way, the Tartar mak ing a very short,business-like job of it, merely turning to receive the plaudits of the crowd after eaoh head rolled off, and responded by a grin whioh showed every one of his teeth. Bat the stolidity of the poor wretches was beyond description. Not a musole quivered, and even when waiting for the blade of tbe executioner to fall I oould not detect a sign of emotion. The crowd seemed to enjoy the sight immensely, and set up a yell of delight at each cut of the Tartar's sword. I am told that executions are common here Sickened with the sight I went down one of the roads, and, coming to a prison, went in. Of all the places in this world I believe there is not one where so much abject wretchedness can be Been as in a Chinese prison. . The criminals serving out sentence get but one meal a week from the authorities. The rest of the time they are fed by their friends, if they have any ; by the contributions of visitors, or they starve. I had not much money with me on going in, but came oat penniless, the poor creatures so working on my - feelings. Some of the prisoners had lost a hand, others were heavily ironed, and all wore the same pinched and starved look. I saw three women in pro cess of execution for murdering a man. They were hanged by the neok in a kind of wood en stooks, so arranged that their feet oould. just touch the ground, and were left in this condition till dead. Sometimes death ensues very soon, but of tener a day or two will pass before the poor wretch dies, as there la no pressure on the neck, I was glad to get away from this place, too. But the piteous tones of the poor prisoners, begging for 'cumshaw' (a present,) ring in my ears yak"
