A great many people in this vicinity ' and in other parts of Connection! are Interested in hipping, and are, therefore, interested in the vigorous attempt which is bow being made to prevent the pirates (or pilots as they call themselves) who infest New York harbor con tinuing their depredations. The abuse at tacked is one of long standing. In 1853 the pilots had a law passed by the New York Leg islature establishing compulsory pilotage, and this was accomplished in spite of the protest of all the leading merchants of New York city. Sinoe that time the pilot system of New York has been a close corporation and a mo nopoly. In 1863 the pilots succeeded in get ting another law passed increasing the rates 83$ per oent.,with the distinct understanding, however, that there should be a return to the old rates just as scon as the inflated war prices then existing were over. Thus, having fixed it so that a pilot must be employed on each vessel, and having got the prices arranged to suit themselves, the small bat powerful band of New York pilots addressed themselves con tentedly to the task of preying upon American and foreign commerce. They-have been very successful in carrying out their well laid plans, and have profited thereby. In 1873 the gross earnings of the port of New York, as given by the Pilot Com. missioners, snow an average of f 3,639 per pilot. In 1878 the average was $1,449. In 1879 the average was $4,707. Shipmasters who navigate through long voyages are paid from $75 to $100 a month, and steamship commanders from $1,000 to $2,000 a year. The working of the system has been replete with absurdity and wrong. Many companies who run vessels have more confidence in the piloting skill of their own captains than in that of any ohanoe pilot that may offer him self. Neverthleess the pilot demands pay for services which are not wanted or taken and gets it. It ia shown that on one of the Havana steamers, in one year, a pilot was paid $2,872 in pilotage for 108 hours' actual service, or $472 more than was paid to the captain of the steamer for his year's servioes and the responsibilities aod risks of eighteen voyages. On another steamer of the same line the captain was con sidered as competent as a pilot, and although pilot was not employed, under the' com pulsory law the same amount of pilotage was paid as on the other steamers. Other exhib its show that the pilots reoeive for their servi oes at the rate of $54, $39.58 and $46.97 an hour for piloting steamers, and $9.50 an hour for sailing vessels. The Hell Gate pilotage especially is considered a fraud and an impo sition by everybody exoept the pilots. Tho Government has spent large sums of money in opening Hell Gate so as to improve navi gation there, and it has so far succeeded that nearly every vessel can go through without a pilot. Sailing vessels are towed through in most instances, and the servioes of a pilot are not needed. But the thirty-five pilots who infest that region row about in their small boats, hail vessels and take their names, and then charge half pilotage because the New York law permits them to do so. On one day, two weeks ago, 273 vessels passed through Hell Oats, and if each vessel required a pilot the thirty-five would not have been sufficient, yet half pilotage was collected on all of them. Those who are working for a reform in the pilot laws of New York make three apparently very reasonable demands : First, a redaction of 33 1-3 per cent, on the present rates of pi lotage ; second, the total abolition of compul sory pilotage ; third, the dispensing altogeth er with the Hell Oate pilots. They are hope ful tbat the present Legislature will grant the desired relief. It certainly ought to, for there is abundant evidenoe that the New York pilot system is a system of extortion.

The -post-mortem showed plain traces of arsenic, but nobody is suspected and there is no reason to suspeot anybody. She was accustomed to take patent medicines, and it is thought that these contained the arsenio found in her. Such cases will tend to make willful poisoning by arsenio harder to than it is now. prove Business is decidedly picking up in Europe, if we may judge by the activity of speculation in various cities. At London, Vienna and Paris there are stock booms, and in the latter city an immense one. The aggregate net ad van oe of the securities quoted on the bourse from December 31, '78, to December 31, '79, was $546,765,888. Nearly one-third of this, $160,728,377, is in the appreciation of French rentes or Government bonds, but French rail road shares have increased in value $103,000, 000 and the funds of foreign governments $120,000,000, net. The advance of railroad bonds in this country in 1879 was probably four or five times as large as in France, but then the railroad system of this country has cost three times as much as that of France. - Some very startling statements were made in a recent lecture by Dr. B. K. Gregg before the class of the College of Physicians and Sur geons of Buffalo, New York. The lecturer has charge of the Department of Tuberculosis, and may be presumed to speak from well authenticated statistics. He announced tbat in each generation "one-fifth of all mankind die of consumption alone, and one-third of all from the ravages of tubercles upon all the organs' of the body, including the lungs." Comparing the mortality from this source with that from yellow fever during the year 1878, he stated that it "would require 450 years of such epidemics of yellow fever to equal the devastation wrought by consump tion in a single generation in this country alone, and 750 years of such work to equal the mortality caused by tubercles in one genera tion in this country. " The London Standard gives some harrowing statements regarding the sufferings of the people in parts of Ireland. In Connemara the suffering almost baffles - belief. The ap pearanoe of relief at onoe revealed the misery of the poor creatures who thronged to obtain it. Hungry and half-naked, without do the and without credit, they had cowered for weeks in their cabins, ashamed to appear before their neighbors in the open day, and only ven turing to move about when the friendly shades of night came to veil their wretched ness. But now the news was abroad that bread for the hungry ones might be had for the asking, and in the wild rush to obtain it all other considerations were forgotten. Wo men and children, half-naked, rushed through the streets and besieged . the doors of the committee rooms and provision stores. The women were wrapped in pieces of old patch work quilts. An old blanket or piece of sack ing was substituted for a cloak, and in some oases an old corn sack was used for the same purpose It was manifest that every article of clothing on which money could be raised had been disposed of. At one shop door up wards of a hundred of these poor creatures, who had previously obtained relief tiokets. might have been seen struggling for admission and clamoring loudly for the scanty dole of meal or bread to which they had suddenly be come entitled. The Standard thinks there is not a village in all the Western distriot which would not, if relief were publicly distributed, present a similar spectacle. The scheme by which the Mormons monopo lize most of the tillable land in Utah is just now attracting some attention. Wherever they have planted a colony they have planted a "city," and these so called cities have been used to take up vast tracts of land. The Ter ritorial Legislature has incorporated 37 cities in Utah. Although all bat two of the thirty seven have obtained patents from the United States for the land upon which theystiBifl;and an additional quantity for their speculative growth, according to their population, yet they exercise corporate authority over the whole area specified in their Territorial char ters. For example, the City of Moroni was incorporated with 40 square miles, or 40 sec tions of land, containing 25,600 acres. It was incorporated in 1866, but in 1870, four years later, its population consisted of only 633 per sons. When it sought a patent from the United States in 1872, its residents were so few that only half of one section, or 320 acres, could be secured for them as a town site. To-day this so-called "City" of Moroni exeroises cor porate authority over the whole 40 square miles included in Us Mormon charter. Salt Lake City's corporate extent is 49 square miles or 81,360 acres. Under the act of 1867, tbe maximum amount of land whioh could be patented to a city was 2,560 acres. The authori ties of Salt Lake City represented that this would not be enough for its municipal neces sities, and therefore Congress, by special act, gave the city a patent for 5,720 acres. By the organio act of Congress under which the Ter ritory of Utah was established, the Legislature was forbidden to pass any law whioh would interfere with the primary disposal of the soil of the United States, and it is a question whether the aotion of the Legislature in incor porating these cities pn the public lands has been Btrictly legal. It is certainly contrary to sound policy. RECENT PUBLICAT10SS. 'The Pathology of Mind," by Henry Maudsley, M. D., is the third edition of 'the second part of the "Physiology and Pathol ogy of Mind." It has, however, been so much enlarged and rewritten as to make it in substance a new work. Some entirely new material has also been added, including inter esting and suggestive chapters on "Sleeping and Dreaming," and "Somnambulism and its Allied States." The author devotes three chapters to the important subjects of "The Causation and Prevention of Insanity." The other and kindred subjects treated are "The Insanity of Early Life," "The Symptomatol- ogyvjf Insanity," "Clinical Group3 of Mental Disease," "The Morbid Anatomy of Mental Derangement," and "The Treatment of Mental Disorders." A full and analytical in dex is added to the volume, whioh makes ref erence easy, and which, the author thinks, "will enable the reader to judge what sort of fare be may expect if he is minded to make trial of it."

Its titles, instead of being put in alphabetical form, are classified into the three general di visions of the Mineral, Vegetable and Animal kingdoms; and the subjects belonging to these several divisions are treated in course as suggested by one another. Thus, com mon salt naturally suggests other salts, such as nitre, alum, etc., and nitre leads to gun powder and sulphur. The topics, too, are not treated cyclopsedically, but are arranged in the form of questions and answers. There is a great deal of useful information in the book.

The book takes its title from the opening incident, which describes the two boys surreptitiously making a breakfast upon rolls stolen from where the baker has left them upon the doorstep, and which they are dipping into a pitoher of milk left in the area by the milkman.

'The Emotions," by James MoOosh, D.D, LL.D., is a careful analysis, description and classification of the emotions as separated from the feelings that is to say, from the sensations. Contrary to the now popular mode, and in direct opposition to the funda mental position of Dr. Maudsley's book, the analysis is made from the standpoint that mind is essentially different from matter and is to be studied not through physiology, but through self-examination through the study of the emotions as they actually exist in psy chical action. Their physiological concomi tants and effects are, however, not neglected, though they are not closely worked out. . The vagueness of the idea of feelings and emo tions generally entertained, Dr. MoCosh thinks favors the tendency on the part of the prevailing physiological psychology of the day to resolve all feeling, and our very emo tions, into nervous aotion, and thus gain an important provinoe of our nature to material ism. The result of his analysis is that there is an idea, or a perception, as the nucleus of aU emotion. Published by Charles Soribner's Sons, New York, and for sale in this city by Judd the bookseller.

How the Preparations are ISade-Eni. D&rraesment os tne Actors Enihuii asm of Ike Free Ticket Holders and Levity ol tbe Critics. New York Letter to Phil. Times. I think there is nothing more interesting to a student of human nature than an audience in a New York theatre on the night of a first performance. The average manager, with all his care and caution and experience and anxiety and risk, naturally desires to present the play as nearly perfect as possible. To that end he summons, weeks and weeks prior to its prodnction, his artists, has the play read to them, cives his ideas, allots his parts, has his first, second, third readings, and then, calling letter-perfect rehearsals, insists that his people shall come as well prepared as though the audience sat in front. The stage carpenters and artists have their orders and their rehearsals follow. Night after night, when the theatre is as dark as a pocket, the stage is lighted and the scenic rehearsals go on. This is done not only night after night, but week after week, sometimes, as in the case of the Union Square Theatre six or eight weeks, until every member of the cast is sup posed to be as dead-letter-perfect as he ever can be. And yet, in spite of all this, in spite of repeated performances with the manager sitting in front, in spite of the scenic prepara tions long completed, when the first night oomes, ninety-nine times in one hundred the artists are shaky in their lines, waits are in terminable and sets are as difficult cf place ment as if no such thing as a rehearsal had been known. The public, anxious that the manager shall score a success, interested for the author and enthusiastic about their fav orites on tbe boards, turn and say to one an other, "Admirable." "Beautiful." "When this is cut and has been played a few times, and they are perfect in their lines, and the carpenters understand their business, this will be a delightful play." And the press on the following morning says: "With ju dicious outting here, and necessary pruning there, this play bids fair to be an unquestioned success, and when the artists are more famil iar with their lines and everything is working smoothly the public will find, etc., etc." Now, why under heavens it is so I fail to under stand. Tbat the fact remains no intelligent observer will presume to deny. It is custom ary here and, I presume, everywhere, for our managers to send tiokets on the occasion of a first performance to the several newspapers, and it is also customary for our leading jour nals to give, on the following morning, even though the curtain may fall at twelve and the paper must go to press at two, elaborate and carefully-considered criticisms, including the plot and story of the piece, the novelties in situation, the beauties in dialogue and the merits or demerits, as the case may be, of the artists engaged. That now and then, the best-intentioned critic may make a mistake should not be considered strange. Indeed, in view of the harry in which these articles are prepared, I am free to say that, as a rule, they reflect credit upon the head, the hand and the heart of the men who write them. The heart ? Yes, the heart. If a man goes to the theatre and sees a bad play, which by tinkering may be made a partial go, knowing the nervousness of the manager, the trepida tion of the artists and the positive misery of the author, he holds his hand. No critic was ever yet thanked for a courtesy or a kindness; no critic was ever yet left uncursed for a stern report and reoord of a failure. The mana gers, the authors and the artists, as a rule, want puffery and slobbery and slather or noth ing. How many times have writers been begged to say nothing ; contrary to Barnum's rule, "To say what you please, but say some thing ;" contrary to a note received by a man now somewhat advanced in years and in jour nalism, but then young in both, from - Mr. Wallaok, who, a day after a careful and con scientious criticism upon a performance in Wallaok's Theatre, wrote thus : "Your arti cle gives evidenoe of thought and study. I thank you for the suggestions, and will en deavor to profit by them." In this first-night housey in addition to tbe press men, who, as a rule, occupy tbe aisle seats, and knowine each other well, feel at liberty to express their opinions and interchange ideas, are a number of other people to whom tickets are sent, very largely men connected with journals, not as critics, but as writers in other departments, correspondents of out-of-town papers, bogus or otherwise ; men about town and people prominent in society, to give tone to the au dience. But there are also scores and scores of people who go to the theatre on the first night quite as much to see the noted people in the audi ence as the play upon the stage. These are as well known as the regular first-nighters. There are families who have certain seats set aside for them as regularly as the press men have their seats set aside for them. They call a day or so before the production of the piece and pay for their tiokets. On the night of the play they are-on hand in full dress, and really do their share towards making the piece a go by their kindly greeting to artists upon the stage, their liberal applause and their vehe ment calls for painter, manager, author and so on. The State farmers have united to fight the collection of fraudulent notes secured under various pretenses by confidence men. Experiments Willi a "Mad-Stone. Its Remarkable Efficacy In the Moat Poisonous of All Snake Kites. II. 8. Olcott's Letter from Bombay in N. X. Bun. I promised to tell you something about our first experience with the mad-stone as an anti dote for tbe cobra bite, and I will. A fort night ago there wandered into our present se cluded compound, a juggler of striking ap pearance, indeed. He was evidently a Raj poot, for his complexion was swarthy, he wore his beard and brushed it from the centre of the ohin each way after the Rajpoot fashion, and his shining ebon hair hung in heavy tresses to his shoulders. He had two baskets of snakes, and carried a stout staff in his right hand. A Hindoo gentleman, who happened to be calling at the moment, recognized him as the cleverest snake charmer in Bombay, so he made him weloot ;e, as you may believe. His first care was to hand me to read a num ber of certificates from former natiyino recti fying to his cleverness as a snake catcher ; among them, one from a rioh Paraee, who certified that the bearer, Bichu Natb, had captured and removed two cobras from his grounds at Lenowlie. This looked well. Bichu Nath, through an interpreter, ex plained to us that he would play first unon his vagouday, or pipe, and then produce "for us a cobra from any corner or spot, inside the bungalow or in the garden, we would indicate. So, throwing off the cotton wrap that he wore over his shoulders and leaving upon his person no other covering than his dhoti, he took his gourd instrument of music and began to play. It was unexpectedly sweet and smooth in tone, and really seemed quite cal culated to exeroise an attractive influence over a serpent. But no wriggling ophidian came from his hiding place to twine about the charmer's legs principally, I suppose, for the reason that we have none in our neighbor hood. Bichu Nath looked hither and thither as though waiting for them, and then 'shook his head to signify that the service rendered to the Lenowlie Parses would not hare to ba repeated here. He then turned his back to us, as if for decency s sake, and unwound and held out his dhoti to show tbat there was no chance for him to hide anvthice about his yerson, bad he so desired ; and then, readjust ing the dhoti, grasped his long staff and stole stealthily toward the spot outside the bunga low where we had told him to produce his first cobra. He was at that moment a most artistio figure, with his swart, spare body, in whioh the muscles were sharply defined; his thick suit of glossy hair shaking in the wind, and his outstretched hands clutching the staff. He was repeating to himself in half-tones what seemed to be a mentram, and glided forward by long strides, in a panther-like way,much as an American; Indian is supposed to do when in the vicinitv of an enamv. Wo all k-ft the verandah and followed him ; I close after his heels, so that I might watch his tricks. When at the chosen spot he made a sudden stroke forward with bis stick, and in tbe next instant there was a veritable cobra di oapello on the ground, erect on its coil, with head extended and hissing at us. Our first thought was to run, but as I saw the man's naked' foot and leg within a foot of the crea ture's fangs, and ho not diecomnosed in tha least, I concluded tbat the danger was more apparent than real, so did not budge. By a dexterous movement the charmer caught the reptile just under the head, and, sliding his thumb up under the jaw, held it firm, and fast, though it wrapped its coils about his naked arm and wriggled to free itself. He parried this snake to his baskets and slipped it in, whereupon he returned to our orann and went through the same performance again, lhis time he produced a much larger and finer snake than the other one, at the foot of a banana tree as requested. We then adjourned to a large room in one of the bungalows, where the Rajpoot appear - eu vu inaKo u coora arop out of a towel that hang on a nail : and. havinsr bv this tim sat isfied our curiosity for this branch of his art. ne osKca us to oring a chioken, so that we might be satisfied that the stakes had not had their fangs drawn. While a servant was gone in search of the fowl the man crasned tha last cobra, and opening its mouth by squeez ing ii uuuer tua lower jaw, ana pressing a splinter of wood transversely against the zrgomatio muscles to prevent the iaws from closing, showing ns its large, needle-pointed tangs. Once when Dr. H. O. Trumbull, the Hartford philologist and librarian, was da- scribing to me tha fats ot Knakj charm6r,t Cairo, Egypt, he affirmed that the serpent's fangs had been drawn and the corners of its mouth sewed together. I am now able to affirm tbat, at least in tbis instance, the deadly reptilo bad not been so doctored. Our cobra being replaced noon tha comnnt floor of the room, and the chicken given to the operator, the latter clutched it in his hand so as to make the wings partly servo as a shield, and teased the serpent into a rage. It rose upon its coil, drew back, ernanrlnrl Its hood to the widest extent, and hissarl with a sound like the drawing in and exnnllino- of one's breath through tho closed teeth. It seemed hardly willing to look at the poor rowl, but fixed its gaze upon tho Hindoo's band. Presently it plunged forward as quiok as a flash, and struck at the hand whore it was unprotected by the bird's wings. The man never flinched, and the angry snake then struck the chicken again and acrain. Tha charmer dropped it on the floor, when it was again struct, ana then its enemy, as if satis fied, rose again and resumed its hissinc. The chicken staggered about for a few seconds, dropped, turned over on its back, kicked con vulsively, and soon died. The charmer pinchcu the back of his hand, and snueezini? out a drop of blood showed us where one of the fangs had pierced the skin. His coolness at onoe surprised me and excited my suspi cion, though we had just witnessed the end of the fowL He went to a small tin box that he had placed conveniently near, and, turning over what appeared to be some small dried roots, took out a dark, hard substanoe, about the size of a vest button, which he applied to his wound. Its diameter, as I subsequently ascertained, was 17-32 of an inch, itsthickness 3-16 of an inch. Not having any weight small enough to weigh it by, I pat rice grains in the opposite pan of the scales, and found it just balanced eighty of them. Its color above is dark brown ; that beneath a dull lead color, and the two laminte are joined in such a way as to quite resemble a shell came. It teds to tne touch more like a fine-grained horn than anything else. This was one of the fa mous "mad stones" of India. It stuck fast to the wound at onoe. and the Hindoo then turned his whole attention to the hissing snake, which had now moved from its position. He teazed it with a towel until it struck it half a dozen times, but never taking its eye from his face. All this while the bard button stuck to tbe one drop of blood on his band, as I ascertained by taking hold of it stuck fast. After awhile it dropped off of its own accord. I could not perceive that it had changed at all in color, nor was there on the surface that had been applied to the man's hand any gummy or sticky substance that would account for its having adhered so tena ciously. He said that was due to a magical f say magnetic or odio if vou choose) pronert v it had, whioh caused it to attract to itself the oobra virus, and, while so attracting, to oling to the wound. Be this as it may, it certainly did stick tighter than the gumminess of a sin gle coagulated arop of blood would explain. 1 hat this "stone or substance had curious resident properties was now shown in a re markable manner. The Rajpoot, taking it between his thumb and finger, held it toward the serpent, whose rage seemed not to have at all subsided. . As though some electric current bad suddenly struck it, the reptile drew back its head as far as it could, and. without at tempting to strike, hissed less and less violent ly, swayed from one side tojho other, folded its hood, loosened its coil and sank lower and lower, until it lay silent and relaxed on the floor, tho charmer constantly pushing "the mad stone nearer and nearer toward its head, until he touched the skin and held it there. Wo were amazed, indeed, for we could not comprehend that the reptile could so per fectly simulate the state of narcotization or mesmiration. Still, to satisfy myself that we were not witnessing either the effect of the man's own mesmerio power upon the ani mal or a clever bit of ophidian acting, I took the stone in mv own hands, and. first arousing the snake by teasing it until it had risen in rage at me, and was hissing as ven omously as before, 1 moved toward him. The result was as before, the snake coming rapidly under the power of the stone, uncoil ing itself, and falling limp in a heap. The friends present, who bad been ready to pull me back by my coat-tails for fear I might be bitten, now pressed near, and Mme. Blavatsky at once struok a bargain for the snake stone and took possession of her prize for a few rupees. I will not attempt to explain this seeming mystery ; you have the exaot details, and may draw your own conclusions. I am quite aware that Dr. Fayror, in his splendidly illustrated work on the Indian "Thanatophi dia," expresses his entire disbelief in the virtue of these mad stones, and describes his ineffect ual attempts-to save with them the lives of dogs which had been bitten by cobras. I have also been told that a standing reward of some thousands of rupees is offered by the British ' Government for a stone or anv other antidote to this deadly poison. Nevertheless, the inci dents above described aotually happened, and h must De aamittea they are very strange. As to the charmer producing his oobras from saoh places as we indicated, that is a mere trick of sleight of hand, though a clever one, as a aisooverea when he privately showed it to me ; but unless we are to believe that a strance cobra would go through such performance for me as I have narrated, the eff eot of this bonv substance upon his nervous system would seem to be a subject for scientific inquiry.
