THE ST A 11 ROUTE HlXi'S DEFEAT.
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

goes to public places, writes few letters, and
his speeches are as infrequent and as short

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.

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.
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.
