The battle over the "Star" route bill in tbe Honse terminated in the discomfiture of the Fostofnce department, the contractors' ring, an industrious lobby and the many members of Congress who seemed to feel it neoessary to defend the pernioions poliey that has been pursued bj Seoond Assistant Postmaster Gen eral Brady. That Mr. Brady has been able to secure such powerful support as he has is not altogether pleasing, but it is matter for congratulation that straightforward, honest men of both parties have united in the fight gainst him and his backers. Mr. Brady's course has been most reprehen sible. He has assumed the right to spend public money without regard to the limita tion of the appropriation made for the depart ment which he does not adorn. Take his own showing. According to his own figures sworn to by him before the investigating oommitlee he admitted that upon the twelve largest routes alone he allowed a total increase of $934,990 a year. He attempts to justify this extraordinary act by stating that the rapid growth of the country rendered this step neo essary. The revenue obtained by the Gov ernment postoffices on the line of these routes should be a test of the business transacted. The following are the receipts together with the expenses on five large routes: The Fort Worth and Yuma route, increased by Brady from $134,000 to $299,000 a year, yields the Government a revenue of $38,194. The Vinila and Los Yega route, inoreased by Brady from $6,330 to $150,542 per annum, yields a revenue of $5,120 a year. Ths Preseott and Santa Fe route, increased by Brady from $13, 313 to $135,975, yields an annual revenue of $10,168. The Bock Creek and Etohetah route, increased by Brady from $10,507 to 18,765, yields a revenue of $2,493. The preceding routes then, which were originally let for $166,500, and were increased by Brady to $744,544, produce to the Government, on acoount of the increase of business, a revenue of only $63,716. This hardly sustains Mr. Brady's principal plea. The public money having been thus ex travagantly and unlawfully used, it is not to be wondered at that the appropriation for the Fostomoe- department was not sufficient, and that the sum intended for twelve months lasted but nine. But the coolness with whioh Brady took the exposure of his mismanagement, ths assuranoe of the department in asking for $1,700,000 to supply the deficiency, and the efforts made to get it are, under the circum stances, calculated to exoite a mild surprise. It does not add, for instanoe, to one's admira tion for the Fostoffice department to read that among the lobbyists on the floor of the House during the discussion of the deficiency bill was Assistant Fostmaster General Tyner, busy, with the agents of the contractors, in trying to induce the members of the House to vote the full amount demanded by the Post offioe department. But in spite of the efforts of Tyner and his companions the House granted but about $1,000,000, and the star service will probably .not be as extravagantly conducted during the rest of the year as it has been, though we should feel safer about it were General Brady removed from its control, as he ought to be. Prominent among those who have shed light upon this abuse in the Postoffioe depart ment, and worked hard to defeat the schemers who would continue it, is General Joseph B. Hawley. He has not hesitated to speak his mind ooncerning the conduct of General Brady, which he has denounced as an "open, defiant and shameless infraction of the statutes of the United States." It is nothing else, and General Hawley did his duty in thus charac terizing it. EDITORIAL NOTES. What is the matter with Canada ? There has been a great increase of crime there not less than 25 per cent. within two years. In another column "Woman" attempts to help the men out of the difficulty they find in picking out she best man for President. She would have President Hayes asked to take a seoond term. President Grevy of France, is almost as silent a man as General Grant. He seldom goes to public places, writes few letters, and his speeches are as infrequent and as short and pointed as politeness will allow. There are two sides to speculation in stocks, and occasionally one of them is a very bad one. A Brooklyn man who lost all he had in Wall street was unable to endure his disap pointment, and died Thursday from the ef fects of a dose of laudanum. Men should keep out of Wall street, especially if they care more for money than life. Bussia and Persia are a long way off, and therefore the miseries of the parts of the hu man family which inhabit those countries can not be realized here. But a faint idea of them may be gained from ths statement that in Bussia, since November, 40,000 people in two provinces alone have died of diphtheria, and whole villages near Walk! have become almost depopulated ; and in Persia there are 0,000 starving families near Oroomiah. Tbe Committee on Constitutional Amend ments have repotted favorably on the pro posed amendment giving the Governor power to nominate the judges of the Supreme and Superior Courts. The friends of this amend ment claim that it would be of great benefit to the State, but there are many who think it not worth while to make a change. The members of the General Assembly should bs very careful to take the right action in so im portant a matter. If the ' Washington correspondent of the Springfield Bepublican may be believed, the aeleotion of Cincinnati as the place for holding the National Democratic conven tion was not only not a victory over Tilden, but it showed that he con trols the machinery of the Democratic or ganization. The correspondent says that ex Senator Barnnm, whose personal wishes were toward Chicago, found when he reached Washington that the Tilden group at Wash ington and in New York had fixed on Cincin nati, and he brought his friends from his own section to the same way of thinking. As 6very one must have noticed, the num ber of defaced coins in circulation is large and seems to be constantly increasing. Oat of five dollars' worth of silver change, two or three coins will generally have been clipped, bored, or otherwise mutilated. The nuisance has grown so great that the Government has instructed its agents not to accept inperfect coin, which is an example that every one will do well to follow. In no other way can mu tiated coin be driven out of circulation, and the operations of the petty swindlers who bore and clip the silver currency be checked. The Bicbmond(Va.1 Despatch comes out in favor of the retention of the two-thirds rule in the Demooratio National convention. It thinks it renders it next to impossible for a shrewd, wire-working aspirant to control the action of the convention through a large mi nority of the delegates, and also says : "If justice were done, such States as Vermont, Pennsylvania, Wisoonsin, and a few others that never vote the Democratic ticket, would not be allowed to be represented in the Na tional convention ; bat inasmuch as there are always so many doubtful States which may or may not cast their votes for the Democratic candidate, it is in practice founj necessary to allow all the States to be represented, as per chance some favorable turn in the wheel of fortune might give the Democrats a State whose vote they had not counted upon. Al though the Bepublican States are thus allowed to be represented in the National convention, they cannot nominate a candidate so long as. the two -thirds rule is in operation." People who live in cities expeot to find a great many things in their milk, but neither city or country consumers of milk will be pre pared to find that fell disease consumption in it Nevertheless several medical men cf prominence, both here and in England, have lately maintained that tuberculosis is often Imparted to human subjects by milk from dis eased cows, and Prof. Otto Bollinger, of the Munich University, one of the highest author ities in Germany, has snstained their position in a paper recently read in that city. He said that repeated experiments show that the milk of tuberculous beasts has a very decided con tagious influence, and reproduces the disease in various animals, and that its noxious prop erties cannot be expelled even by boiling. While the tuberoulosis of man is not com pletely identical with that of the cow, it is very similar; hence, there is constant dan ger to any community where milk is freely used. Tbe Professor ejoins upon farmers the necessity of taking the strictest care of their stock, and upon people generally tbe greatest care as to the quality of milk they use. Bigid measures should be adopted everywhere to exclude distempered cattle from dairies. This has been done in the as sociated dairy established recently in Munich, and will have, it is believed, excellent hygi enio effect. All cows are there kept under the closest medioal supervision, and at the slightest symptom of tuberculosis are imme diately removed. It is estimated that nearly 10 per cent, of the oows kept in towns are more or less diseased. This information, fol lowing so closely after Professor Johnson's lecture on food adulterations, is cot at all cheering. Perhaps milk that is not milk is the safest after all.

A big six-footer was lifting for all he was worth on a wagon wheel, which was stuck, when a little two-foot mite of humanity, nearly as broad as he was long, and just out of long dresses and into pants, with his hands in his pockets and a swaggering air, sang out : "Mister, do you want me to help you ?

We have heard of a great many extraordi nary advertising tricks, but never did we bear of one equal to this : Harley is an hon orable inhabitant of New York. Harley, furthermore, manufactures shoe-blacking. Harley took an airing the other day along one of the Hudson Biver piers, just as a large ocean steamer was putting in, and the pier was crowded with people. With his nose in the air, Harley walked innooently into the wa ter. Harley was not a swimmer, as could ba seen by the awkward manner in whioh he flapped the waves with bis arms. Cries of horror and terror rent the air, and from every quarter flew small boats to the rescue of tbe unfortunate Harley, who continued to floun der about.

Woman. An. Wise Serpent, From the Hsmllton (Qa.) Journal. Mr. M. of our sister city, West Point, was down on the river fishing last summer, when he discovered a very wise serpent. He was sitting near a rock, under which was a snake's den. The proprietor of the den came gliding np from a foraging expedition, and was disap pearing in the hole under ths rook, when, with a dexterous movement, Captain M. seiz ed him by the tail and threw him twenty feet away. The snake hardly knew what had hap pened, and again essayed to enter his domicile in the same manner. Again he was treated as before. Never despairing, for a third time the wily serpent approached the rock. This time he came deliberately, as if carefully contem plating the situation. Arriving at the mouth of the hole, this time he deliberately coiled himself up and put out his long tongue, as if to take in the full situation. For a while he maintained this defensive position, when he carefully began to uncoil, at tbe same time disappearing tail foremost into the den. This story is fully warranted by Captain M , who stands ready to testify to its correctness. COKEESPONOENCE. A Letter from New York How Wash lns;toil Hirtbda.y was Observed Mr. Rulckkoldt's Fowls Tueir Sale How Lest Is Not Kept The Bal masque de l'Opera. New Yobk, Feb. 27, 1880. To the Bditornf fAsJotrsKAi. and Coubxeb: New York keeps holidays after a fashion. In honor qf Washington's Birthday a large proportion of the stores and offioes were olosed, especially in the down-town quarters. Wall street looked like a "deserted village," and was as silent ai one. Buildings like the Evening Poet building, which are -inhabited mostly by bankers and lawyers usually found in company did not even roll np the ponder ous iron shutters that seal the main entrance. Nevertheless, the people who do not believe in holidays are always present in great foroe, which gives to the city generally an aspect of doubtful loyalty. A day of absolute suspen sion of business is never seen. Sunday ap proaches nearest but never attains that ideal condition. Strolling up Broadway, however, I was able to discover signs of a jour de fete. Flags floated and flapped in bewildering numbers; very seldom did one disooverabare staff. The theater lobbies yawned and dis played the words "Matinee To day" conspic uously at the entrance. The sidewalk was trodden -by a Btraggling, leisurely-moving crowd, quite different in its character from the solid columns of the ordinary business day. Arrived at Union Square, I encountered a multitude that lined the curbstone and choked the doorways, patiently waiting for the appearance of the Eleventh regiment, which had announced a parade. At length it marched into view, resplendent with hel mets, plumes and white gloves. In the evening the Ninth regiment held a reception at Madison Square Garden. The review of the regiment and the presentation of a new stand of colors were followed by a full dress ball The fantastio decorations on the occasion of the ball of the Arion Sooiety last week still remained, and contributed to the brilliancy of the scene. THOSE CELEBRATED NEW HAVEN BBAHMAS. Never did a family of fowls reach snoh a Napoleonic height of notoriety as those Brah mas attained which a citizen of your city sent here to be Bold for the Irish famine fund. During their sojourn in the metropolis they were courted by the npper ten and admired by the lower ten thousand, and the Herald de voted a column daily to sounding their praises. Their Bale at auction in front of the Stock Ex change was attended by thousands. A stage was ereoted in the middle of the street and deoorated with bunting for the use of the auctioneer, and Mr. Levy, who had promised to be present, accompanied by his cornet. Being a person of note, it was justly supposed that his presence would lend prestige to the occasion. How large a share of the attend ance the illustrious fowls owed to his presence cannot well be computed, but at noon, the hour of their sale, the stand and truck bear ing the coop were tha cett-r of a vast con course that filled the street to the doorways and fences on either side and overflowed upon the lofty Bteps of the Sub-Treasury. Mr. Levy opened the exercises by playing some lively airs of Erin, and was greeted with tha enthusiasm that he never fails to excite. Then, while their; good humor was at its height, the auctioneer took the audienoa in hand and made a forcible appeal to tbeir char itable feelings. When he turned and pointed with an eloquent gestnre to the noble Brahma cock (who had been taken out of his coop and introduced to the audienoe from the top of it) ana saia, "xnere Btanas tne harbinger of success in this laudable endeavor," his cock ship gave an exultant crow and the crowd cheered. Mr. Levy was very obliging, disre garded the formality of the concert room, and introduced a tune whenever the speech maker got out of breath and paused. A rollicking, noisy, boisterous street assembly requires a very different style of oratory from the polite, quiet and attentive audience of the lyceum. One needs the qualities of the bully to make a successful curbstone orator. Wendell Phil lips polished elocution, with its delioacies of enunciation and inflection, would scarcely be appreciated by such a gathering as surged around the auctioneer of those Brahmas. The bulls and bears looked upon the fowls as so much stock, and so they were sold over and over again half a dozen times, and ths total amount realized from these repeated sales was between six and seven hundred dollars. MEBBIMENT IN LENT. A certain element of New York society ex hibits the most profound contempt for Lent and Lenten observances. The frequency of balls must scandalize all good Catholics. On Thursday evening two were given, both on a scale of great magnifioence ; the Purim ball at the Academy of Music, and the Bal Masque de l'Opera at Madison Square Garden. I at tended the latter, it beiDgthe naughtiest. It teas naughty, but it was likewise nice.. If a thing is French, it may be naughty with im punity. This ball and carnival were given under the supervision of lions. Vic. Corini, of the world renowned Bal de l'Opera given at the Opera House in Paris, and was on the same plan and equal to those given at Paris, which are cele brated for their brilliancy and gayety. The vast enclosure of the garden was crowdedjtrith a very picturesque assembly. The costumes were bewildering in number and variety. There were squaws, braves with their bows and tomahawks, zouaves, farmers, jolly tars, hunipty dumptys, knights, clowns, white cats walking upright, soldiers, policemen, girls dressed as pages, and some dressed in a still simpler costume. One lady, who looked as if she might be the fat woman from the museum on the Bowery, was attired like a girl seven years old, short dress with low tied sash,- low neok and short sleeves, and after her she pulled by a string a child's toy, a little bell on wheels. Ihere were girls dressed like peas ant boys, spinning tops. A man displayed a very handsome figure, in pedestrian costume, red shirt, white trunks and striped stockings, and he 6ept getting up impromptu walking matches and strode around the floor, occa sionally making a "spurt," and imitating at one time the style of O'Leary, at another the playfulness of Weston, and again going gracefully like Hart This gentleman after wards fell in with a female companion, also dressed in pedestrian fashion, no skirts to embarrass her stride, and the pair flashed about the garden the very embodiment of sprightliness and mischief. In fact, every body was ripe for fun, and endless pranks were played by the maskers on each other. A man with a nose a foot long had it tweaked by a bewitching damsel in bright colored peasant's costume, and then he chased her, but her agility was such that he had to give np the pursuit. The vast space enclosed by the eighth of a mile track.around which the pedestrians were wont to tramp so indefatigably, was entirely devoted to the dancers, and a grand dancing floor it is. Nevertheless it was almost unoom- fortaby full. When a waltz was struck up five hundred couples began to whirl and glide simultaneously. There were two full orches tras, one on either side of the garden, and as soon as one had finished a piece the other would begin one. It was a queer scene that the long barroom presented. Here the maskers (mingled freely with the general publio ; brilliant costumes flashed here and there among suits of black, " girls in full dress, three quarters dress, half dress, or even a less fraction still, thronged in with their escorts, stood in knots and chat ted and laughed, and went boldly up to the bar and pledged their companilons in the festive beer. Yes, there was lots of freedom, but then it was a Frenoh ball. The grand prooession had been announoed for 10 o'clock, but it was half-past 1 3 when the bugle sounded its approaoh. The track had been cleared, and when the bugle sound ed there was a helter-skelter rush and soramble for good positions that reminded one of an exciting "spurt" between O'Leary and Bowell,. or Hazael and Merritt, dur ing the six-day walks. First came the "halberdiers" with their long halberds. Then followed the floor and reoeption com mittees. Next were humpty dumpty police men, standard bearers, carnival soldiers, com mander, drum major, tin kettle drummers; band of musio ; master of ceremonies in chariot, drawn by four horses, driven by Char ioteer; pages with cushions, carrying large key and money bag ; Sun, represented by a young lady whose face was surrounded by a circle of gilt rays ; Moon, also represented by a young lady, whose ordinary physiognomy had been usurped by a large silvered crescent; Stars by yonng ladies witb silver rays enoiroling their faces ; animated champagne bottles twelve feet high, which sometimes seemed to be themselves tipsy and threatened to topple over on the spectators ; pirates, clowns ; Prince Carnival, mounted on a magnificent ohariot, pulled by four Polar bears and driven by Puck ; harlequins, col umbines, punoh, pantaloon, amazon guards, Oommandant, lantern posts. After the sensation of the procession, the danoera returned to their dancing with renew ed zest and made a night of it with a ven geance. W. E. D. H. R. Woodworth, a New Britain express man, had the knee cap of his left leg broken about five weeks ago from a kiok of his horse, and died yesterday morning. The surgeons who attended advised the amputation of the leg, but he would not allow it to be done. Dr. Sweet, of Middletown, visited him Mon day and then said he could. Ijvf feuf fgW g7S.
