When Bank Superintendent Ltamb, of New York, sent a oircular to aU the savings bank ofSoers in the State calling upon them for in formation ooDoerning certain unauthorized expenditores of money, quite a stir was orea ted. Superintendent Xstmb had become con vinced that some of the savings banks, with out apparent thought about the depositors or their interests, had made free nse of money, to bs charged to "profit and loss account," in bestowing rich wedding gifts upon employes, giving sumptuous dinners to trustees and friends of the bank, for basts of offioers, and for portraits of lines of presidents. Money had also been leaking out of the banks for "funeral expenses," "legal expenses," contri butions to military organizations, charitable gifts to sufferers in Memphis and elsewhere. Mr. Lamb wanted to know how much of this had been done. The bank offioers naturally felt insulted that they should be asked such questions, but as Mr. Lamb was justified by the law in pushing his inquiries he did not shrink from the task he had set himself. The bank offioers finally concluded to answer the questions asked, and their answers show the need of Mr. Lamb's action. We select a specimen case or two as an il lustration. In one bank the first offloer had enjoyed permanent leave of absence for three years, his salary being reduced to $3,000 a year during that time. At his death the Board of Trustees paid his widow $2,000 for "past services," and the amount was charged to profit and loss account. In the same bank the secretary retired and became actuary at a reduced salary. A gentleman who had been the bank's attorney was elected Beoretary, with a salary of $5,000. In 1875 his salary was increased to $8,000 because the treasurer was absent, and some of that officer's work fell npon the secretary. In 1876 his salary was made $7,000, and when, in 1877, he died, the trustees paid $3,000 to his widow "in recognition of his ser vices as counsel and secretary," and the amount was charged to profit and loss ae. count. The same account was swelled in February, 1878, by the addition of $500 paid to a teller, who retired in consequence of ill health. From 1866 to 1876 the profit and loss account had been charged with gifts to clerks, about $100 to eaoh for every year, and in one year two gifts of this kind were made to all the clerks of the bank. The books of this generous bank show' that a gift of $700 was made to clerks in December, 1877 ; one of $800 in July, 1878 ; another of $800 in De cember, 1878, and one of $400 in January, 1879. From 1876 these gifts of the bank's money were charged as "incidental expenses." In February, 1867, the bank's secretary had been presented with $1,000 ; in October of the same year another gift of $1,500 was made to him, on the same day that another employe received a gift of $1,000. The gifts to offioers and employes in this savings institution in January, 1870, amounted to $3,900. Another bank disposed of about $7,000 in the course of ten years in a similar way, another of more than $45,000 in four teen years, another of $10,000 in ten years, and so on. Superintendent Lamb deserves the thanks of the depositors in New York savings banks for his exposure of the extravagant and law less nse of their money. It is stated that in the last eighteen years not less than a quarter of a million dollars have been needlessly spent by these banks. There will not be much more ot such work, for a time at least.

Fillsbury, thearoh conspirator In the Maine plot, has got sick of Maine and will re move to Boston. Maine is also sick ot him. Senator Edmunds, of Vermont, is in daily receipt of letters from all parts of the conn try urging him to enter the contest for the Presidency, but he replies that he is not a can didate and will not lift a finger to beoome one. This is a very sensible course for him to take. Mr. George Maspero, Professor of Egyp tian Philology and Arcbraology at tbe College de Franoe, in Paris, says that the burying of the trowel and stones under Cleopatra's Nee dle was not a departure from the usual Egyp tian practices. The letter "Omega" he thought was a workman's mark. Mr. Ernest Benan sees no significance in the alleged Masonio discoveries and thinks the historio claims of the Freemasons all pure imagination. In four townships of Logan county, 111., bonds were voted long ago in aid of a railroad. The road was built. Then the towns refused to pay. The courts said they must pay. The citizens replied that they would not. The obligation, with interest, amounts to $335,000. The courts have directed the entry of taxes to meet this debt on the county records, and the collectors are demanding them independently of the taxes voted. The taxpayers have held a publio meeting and de clared that they "are opposed to the payment of said railway bonds and will resist their pay. ment to the last ditch." them. Should the fees paid vessels employing pilots prove insufficient 'to make the system self-supporting, a very small tax laid npon vessels not employing pilots would easily make np the deficiency. To so small a tax the steamship companies could make no objection, and the necessities of oommerce and the just demands of the steamship companies could thus be equitably adjusted." Henry Ward Beecher continued his advo cacy of a third term and General Grant at a Linooln Club meeting in New York Thursday evening. He said General Grant had been criticised, but coming into office when he did, with the country in a state of exoitement and speculation, when corruption, engendered by the anomalous times, had spread over the land, his only wonder was that he had done as well as he did. After eight years of experi mental agitationhe came out without a spot upon his personal integrity, and from the time of his inauguration down to the close of his administration the affairs of this country were steadily getting back into a sound and natural condition again. "If I oould have my own way, continued he, I would vote for Gen. Grant to come back, partly because I should wish to bear testimony against that heresy of 'No third term,' which has taken such a strong hold of some of the people. I refuse to allow any party or any political or ganization to take away from me my right to call again to office a man who, while' in office. has ably fulfilled his functions, who is the choioe of a majority of his countrymen, and say that he shall not try again. I protest against going into an election handicapped. I should select Gen. Grant, beoauBe I think ro tation in office is the curse of our affairs. What we want is more stability and continui ty. It is a point of weakness that our Presi dent is eleoted every four years. It is an un necessary exoitement and disturbance of our community, and yet to have an army officer eleoted for life would be going to the other extreme. The best thing is to re-eleot from term to term the man who is fonnd to be com petent and able to discharge efficiently the functions of his office. So that I hold that a man should not only be eligible for a third term, but even for a fourth term or a fifth term. I don't see why if a judge is eleoted for seven years, and re-elected repeatedly if he is an efficient judge, a President should not be re-elected in the same manner likewise. I should elect Gen. Grant if I had the casting of the whole vote of the country. I should elect him be cause I think he is, perhaps, the most remark able man our age has ever produced in any country. He is a man who is very little- un derstood." Mr. Beecher's remarks were heartily applauded. KECEJiT PUBLICATIONS.

HALL SON, - The New York Times sees a possible way out of the difficulties attending the pilot sys tem of New York, concerning which so muoh complaint is justly made. It asks, Why can not the government, which recognizes it as duty to keep the harbor in good condition, assume the duty of supplying vessels with pilots ? "Two small steamers, carrying twenty-five or thirty pilots each, could supply every vessel with pilot when his services are needed. If we make the acceptance of pilot optional with captains, and substitute steam for sails, fifty pilots oould probably do all the necessary work which one hundred and eighty pilots now do. There would thus be saved the cost of keeping in commission the twen ty-nine pilot boats, whioh now cost $250,000 annually, and the large number of pilots who are able to make s living only while piloting is compulsory. Vessels whioh need pilots oould obtain them, and vessels whioh did .not need them would not be compelled to employ The numbers of The Living Age for the weeks ending February 7th and 14th respect ively have the following contents : The Foroe Behind Nature, by Dr. Wm.

About eieht years ago an alarm reached the chief of police in London that jewels of great value had been stolen from a lady of high rank while a guest at a quiet northern country house. A Handsome reward was onered, ana not long afterward it became known that the property had been recovered. Astound ing as it may seem, it is nevertheless true that the temporary appropriator of these fine things was a millionnaire peer, who, albeit in nowise penurious, its singularly simple in his personal habits, and does not spend one fourth of his income. The matter was all hushed up, and very few persons outside the family knew who the thief, if we oan so oall him, really was. This was a general case of kleptomania, and proves beyond doubt that it really exists. - An English earl of high distinction had this weakness from boy hood, and it involved his leaving Eton. When, in after years, he entered the Cabinet, it was rumored that Lord had entirely conquered the propensity, "except that at a Cabinet council he never oould resist 'Dizzy's' new green kid gloves." The alarming disap pearance of wax candles at the Traveler's olub. London, some years ago, caused muoh dismay. The mystery was at length solved by member of the committee seeing the old Duke of U., (with a clear $750,000 a year; ambling along a corridor with a candle stick ing ont of his coat-tail pocket. His family ware communicated with, and his sraoe ceased to come to the club. Possibly, a simi lar tendency may perhaps explain an unto ward incident which occurred last season at NawTjort. and has latelv been recalled by a concatenation of curious circumstances. There la doubtless a great deal of sham kleptomania. but it is not the less true that sometimes it is perfectly genuine. It is, however, very un fortunate to bs at onoe kleptomaniac and im pecunious.

A special meeting of the Monocacy Scien tific Club was held on Saturday evening to listen to a paper by Dr. H. E. Licks of Old South Bethlehem on the diaphote, an instru ment invented by him after nearly three years of study, and now so nearly . perfect er" that he feels warranted in bringing some few of the results thus far attained to the notice of tbe publio. There were present, besides many scientists of Eastern Pennsylvania, Prof. M. E. Kannich of the 'Polytechnic school at Pittsburg, and CoL A. D. A. Blatio of the Brazilian corps of engineers, who is now in this country making extensive pur chases of iron and steel. The meetinc su oalled to order by the president, Prof. L. M. Niseate, who in introducing Dr. Licks made a few remarks, saying that he had an opportu nity to witness a few experiments with the diaphote, and he felt convinced that the fun damental prinoiple therein involved was one that would ultimately oanse it to rank with the teephone. the phonograph, and the sub divided electric light, as one of the remarkable triumphs of science in the nineteenth centu ry. Dr. Licks prefaoed his paper bv savin it that the idea of the invention was first suggested to his mind about three years aeo bv readino- aooounts of some of the early experiments with Bell's telephone, and that a little later, when Edison brought out the carbon instru ment, his studies had beoome so far advanced as to assure him of its theoretical practicabil ity, liy the telephone the sound of the -.hu-: man voice may be transmitted hundreds or"" thousands of miles away, and, with the micro phone attachment, even the fainteBt whispers distinctly heard. Why then cannot light be transmitted in some similar way, so that by the use of a connecting wire one may dis tinctly nee the image of an objeot far remov ed ? This, said Dr. Lioks, is the form in whioh the inquiry first suggested itself three years ago, and he felt gratified to be able to exhibit to the club this evening an instrument called the diaphote, in whioh the practical realization of the idea had been in a great . measure satisfactorily attained. The word diaphote, from the Greek, did signifying through, and photos, signifying light, "bad been selected as its name, implying that the light traveled through or along a wire. Although popularly this might be imagined to be the case, it was really no more bo than with sound in the telephone. There the sound waves strike a diaphragm that is set into vi brations, whioh generate induced eleatricitv along the wire, and cause corresponding vi brations in another distant diaphragm, and the latter hence reproduces similar sounds. In the diaphote, likewise, the waves of light from an object strike a peculiarly constructed mirror joined by several wires with another mirror or speculum ; the image of an object in the first mortifies electrioourrentsin the wires, and these currents passing quietly onward to the receiving instruments produce there a sec ondary image. The intermediate wire, as in the telephone, may be hundreds of miles long, yet such is the delicacy and power of the dia photio plates that the transmitted image of a single object is almost as distinct as the orig inal, and Dr. Licks feels confident that after the removal of a few obstacles, of a mechani cal nature merely, the most complex forms will be reproduced with the strictest fidelity in shade and color. The diaphote consists of four essential parts, the receiving mirror, the transmitting wires, a oommon galvanio battery, and the repro ducing speculum. Dr. Licks gave a detailed account of the many experiments undertaken to determine the proper composition and ar rangement of the minor and speculum. For the former he had finally selected an amal gam of selenium and chromium. The pecul iar sensitiveness of iodide of silver and chro mium to light has long been known, and their practical use in photography suggested their application in the diaphote. It was found, however, after many experiments, that their action must be so modified tbat each ray of light should influence the eleotrio current pro portionally to its position in the solar spect rum, and selenium was ascertained to be best adapted to this purpose. At first a small mir ror was employed with only a single wire, but the images reproduced in the speculum were indistinot and confused, so that it became neofssary to make tbe mirror of a number of small pieoes each about one-third of a square inoh in area, and having a small wire attached. Iu the aiaphote extiioilSd by Dr. Licks to the olub tbe mirror was six inohes by four, and had C2 fire wires, whioh were gathered togeth er into one about a foot back of the frame, the whole then being finely wrapped with an insulating covering, and on reaohing the re ceiving speculum each little wire was con nested to a division similarly placed as in the mirror. From a common galvanic battery wires also ran to eaoh diaphotio plate, and thus a circuit formed which could be olosedor not at pleasure. The theoretical action of tbe in strument appears now to be the following: The waves of light from an object are conducted through an ordinary oamera, so that they fall on certain of the divisions of the mirror when tbe electric oirouit is closed. The light and accompanying heat produoe momentary chemical changes in the amalgam of the mir ror, which modify the eleotrio current and cause similar -changes in the corresponding partitions of the remote speculum, thus re producing a Bimilar image, which by a seoond oamera may be readily seen by the eye or thrown upon a soreen. Dr. Licks explained how the pror-crtions of selenium in tbe mir ror and speculum .ohculd be scientifically ad justed to tbe size of tbe divisions and tbe re sistance of the electrio circuit, bo as to avoid any blending of tbe reproduoed image: This he said bad been tbe problem whioh bad caus ed him the most difficulty, and which at one time had seemed almost insurmountable. At the close of the paper an illustration was given of the powers of the instrument. The mirror cf the diaphote, in charge of a committee of three, was taken to a room in the lower part of the building, and the con necting wires laid through the balls and stair ways to the speoulum on the lecturer's plat form. Before the mirror the committee held in succession various objects, illuminating eaoh by the light of a burning magnesium wire, since tbe rays from gas are deficient in aotinio power, and simultaneously on the speculum appeared the secondary images, which for exhibition to the audienoe were thrown on a soreen considerably magnified. An apple, a penknife and a trade dollar were the first objects shown ; on the latter the out lines of the goddess of liberty were recogniz ed, and the date 1878 was plainly legible. A watch was held five minutes before the mirror, and the audience oould plainly par oeivo the motion of the minute hand on the soreen, but the movement of the seoond hand was not satisfactorily seen, although Prof. Kannich by looking into the camera thought that it was there quite perceptible. An ink bottle, a flower, and a part of a theatre hand bill were also shown, and when the head of a little kitten appeared on the screen the club testified its satisfaction by the moBt hearty applause. After the olose of the experiments the scientists extended their congratulations to Dr. Licks, and the president made a few re marks on the probable scientific and industrial applications of the diaphote in the future. With the telephone and the diaphote it might yet be possible for friends, separated by the wide Atlantio, to near ana see eaca otner at. the same time, to talk, as it - were, face to face. In connection with the interlocking switch system it might be used to enable sig nal men or the oentral office to see hundreds of miles of railroad traok at once, thus lessen ing the liability to accident. In connection with photolithography it might be so em ployed that the great English dailies could be printed in New York a few hours after their appeal an oe in London. We learn that Dr. Licks will lecture next week on the diaphote before the American Sooiety of Arts, and that he will make defi nite arrangements ior tne manuiacture xor the instrument as soon as the seven patents for which he has applied are formally issued. Tbe Celtic's "White Owl. Picked Up JSIght Hnndred miles From Land, The White Star steamship Celtio, which arrived from Liverpool on Wednesday last, brought a strange passenger who had boarded that vessel in mid-ooean. A large white owl dropped on one of the forward spars in an exhausted condition one evening when the vessel was about 800 miles off the coast of Newfoundland. When brought to the deck by a sailor tbe owl was found to be nearly dead from oold and hunger, and almost too weak to eat. It had beoome greatly emaci ated, and trembled violently in endeavoring to swallow the first morsel of meat whioh was placed in its beak. The owl slowly recovered, and is now perfectly well. It is a land bird, and is supposed to have been blown off the coast of Newfoundland by the westerly galea whioh had for some days previous prevailed there. Finding itself onoe out at sea it had probably ceased making efforts to reach the land, and had drifted before the gal' , its only efforts being to keep above water. The bird must have possessed remarkable powers of endurance, the offioers say, to have kept up so long. The Celtic's owl, whioh is now quite tame, measures nearly five feet from wing to wing, and is white with, the exoeptioa of a few small specks of dark oolor. It will probably live for some time to corns on board the vessel which it seleoted as its home while in mid-ooean. Land birds have rarely been seen so far on, at 1
