Vjykil.soma, Agent, jali 4aSl Advertisers wtao want to reacla tbe people of a State mast advertise In tbe best papers printed In the leadinsr towns. Tnere is a constant call upon ns te make a selection for advertisers and to name favorable prices at which adver tising may be secured. Xnere is a wide difference between tbe prices demanded by newspapers for an advertisement to be inserted a month and one whlctt is to appear for a year. Experienced and successf nl advertisers contract for tbe lonsrest period; bnt there are many who are prevented from dolus; this by the nature of their advertisement, or because the adver tisement is one which they wish to try experimentally before . mahlns; con tracts for any extended time. Bearing: in mind the wants of adver tisers we have agreements with lead in if local papers In every State by which we insert advertisements for a single month at prices approximating the yearly rattw So great is the reduction from regular monthly rates, that advertisers do not understand how the advertising can be secured for the price which we name. For instance : in the State of Connect! cut, a list of IS selected Dally and Weekly papers, wbich would cost ggS.17 if contracted with singly, we are able to offer for fiS. We secure a paper at the State capital, one in each town having as much aa 5,000 populatlon,and at the court house town In populous and wealthy conn' ties.

The announcersent that the work of piero iog Mount St. Gothard is satisfactorily com pleted again calls pnblio attention to the great tunnel that is to be so important to the trade of Europe. The function of this tunnel is to establish easier intercourse and cheaper freights between Lombardy and Switzerland, between Italy and Germany, between the Mediterranean and the German sea. The scheme of which it 'forms a part inoludes railroad which begins at Immensee, on the western shore of the lake of Zag, touches Schwys, runs along the eastern shore of the lake of Lucerne, touches Fluelen and Altdorf , runs along the Beuss, enters the tunnel at Goschenen, leaves it at Airolo, runs down the valley of the Ticino, and ends at Fino, a Til lage on the eastern shore of the La go Mag giore. There it enters Italy and joins the great railway system which centers at Milan. This trunk road has a length of 147.6 kilo metres. The subsidiary roads, Cadenazzo Locarno and Lagano-Chiasso, 39 kilometres long, produce a grand total of 186.6 kilome tres, or almost 116 miles, the whole of it in Switzerland. The cost is estimated at 227, 000,000 francs, or about $45,000,000. The shareholders have paid in $7,000,000; the bondholders $16,000,000; the rest is paid foods pordus," as the phrase is, by Switzer land with $6,000,000, Germany with $6,000, 000, and Italy with $11,000,000. The tunnel itself is 9 miles long, more than a mile longer than the famous Mount Oenis tunnel and about 4J miles longer than tne tioosao tunnel. xne excavation is straight through the mountain, as in the oase of the Mount Cenis and the Hoo sae, but in both the European tunnel? sharp grades are rendered necessary by the nature of the country. Work was begun on the St. Gothard tunnel in 1872, and it was one ot the conditions of the con tract that the perforation should be done within eight years from August 7, 1872. It will be seen, therefore, that this great work has been done in less time than was original ly allowed for it. A comparison of the time it has taken and the money it has cost with the time and money spent on other great tunnels is interesting, and Bhows the rapid advance which has been made in drilling machinery, etc. Tbe Mount Oenis tunnel, length eight miles, less a few yards, cost $15,000,000, and was constructed in the thirteen years from 1857 to 1870 ; the Hoosac tunnel, length 4? miles, cost $13,000,000, and was finished in eleven years from the time the work was proper ly begun. The St. Gothard, length 9 miles, has been bored in about seven years and a half. The contract prices sum up to a total estimated cost of $9,700,000. This amount was to cover all expenses, whether direct or accessory, and all risks and contingencies from whatever cause arising. If this part of the contract is held to, the St. Gothard will be much the cheapest of the three tunnels in cost of construction, in addition to its other and sufficient distinctions. For the present, it is stated, but one track will be laid in the tunnel, but a seoond track can be added at any time without interfering with travel. The profits will all go to the shareholders and bondholders, the three inter ested States having merely reserved the right of being represented in the management of the road and the regulation of the tariff.

The Republicans In Indiana are harmonious and enthusiastic The Congressional distriot conventions held last week showed the party to be in excellent working condition. Disaf fected Kepublioans are returning to the party. Indiana has now six Kepublioans in Congress, and it is thought that with aooept&ble candi dates in the next election they can easily carry seven districts and perhaps eight. There is a rush for nominations on the Bepublioan State ticket. Mr. William H. Vanderbilt's Investment in Government bonds hag turned out to be a profitable as well as a safe one. According to the Treasury books he is now owner of thir ty one million five hundred thousand dollars of registered four per cent, bonds. It is said that he purchased twenty million dollars of these bonds at par. As their present market value is 107, Mr. VanderbQt has already made a profit of one million four hundred thousand upon his investment. This doss not include the amount paid him for the year's in terest, whioh is eight hundred thousand dol lars more. The astrologer Zadkiel hit the mark 14 pre dicting the Czar's peril in his almanao and al so tbe accident to the Princess Louise. Un der his "Voices of the Stars" for this month he has written : "Denizens of San Francis co will be full of exoitement. The Chinese will be involved in many troubles ;" and to that extent Zadkiel may be said to hold the winning cards. But the same "voices" whis per of "fluctuations on the London Stock Ex change and of a panic between the 20th and the 31st inst." Between the same dates the "voices" exclaim that "Paris will be greatly disturbed and martial exoitement will prevail there." The Bev. Dr. Board man, of Philadelphia, a Baptist, comes out in favor of parochial schools. "The Constitution of the United States," he says, "guarantees absolute free dom of conscience ; accordingly, to force the Bible on the non-Christian, or the Protestant version on the Bomanist, or the Kew Testa ment on the Jew, is an invasion both of the Constitution and also of tha rights of con science. Right of conscience la not thus a question of majorities or physical force. So long as the Church abandons to the State the work of educating the nation, the expulsion of the Bible from our schools is only a ques tion of time."; 1 Therefore, he argues, the only right way to educate the children under religious auspices is to do it in schools ' main tained by the churches. ' The town of Shawangunk, New York, is in fair way to discover that repudiation of an honest debt is not looked upon with favor by the United States courts. The town has late ly been trying to avoid payment of a portion of its debt, after paying interest on it for ten years, on the ground that the bonds were il legally executed, althought it was not denied that the town had and used the money. Some of the holders of the bonds, who were citizens of New York, proposed to transfer their bonds to the citizens of New Jersey, in order that Baits might be brought on them in the United States court.- The town, alarmed by the prospect, applied to ont of the State courts for an injunction to prevent the prop osed transfer. This somewhat impudent applica tion has been denied, and the bondholders are at liberty to seek their remedy in that way if they choose. Henry Ward Beeoher made some remarks in a sermon Sunday which must have stirred up some of his hearers a little. Said he : "Among the evils to be guarded against and against which an influence should go out from this and other ohurohes are lying and dishonesty. Unless you get rid of these you will be eaten out by dry-rot. Churches ought to take care of the taxation question of Brook lyn. There is more dishonesty, more lying, more seoretiveness about the value of proper ty than you can imagine, and by' professors of religion too, and it is a shame. I am in favor of taxing churches and ministers and everything through the oommunity excepting institutions of charity. There is no reason why a churoh should not be taxed, the same as a bank president. We are sneaks in this matter of evading taxation." Such words would not be out of place if spoken in other cities besides Brooklyn. An appeal is mad. in New York for the starving people of Brazil. The famine began in 1877, and was caused by drought. The chief suffering has been in the province of Caara. Out of 900,000 people inhabiting this province 200,000 have died of starvation and 300,000 of pestilence. Two-thirds of those left are fed at public expense. The Brazilian Government has done all it could do, and its treasury is about empty. In 1878 a credit of 9,000,000 was voted by the Government to the refugees from the afflicted provinoe. These refugees are still fed or employed on any work the Government has ; but their sit uation is so bad that thousands must starve if help is not obtained from the world out side. The drought continues and the suffer ing was greater last year than the year before. These statements are made by Herbert H. Smith, who has traveled extensively in Brazil for Scribner's Magazine. Vera Sassulitch, the celebrated Nihilist who has recently been arrested in St. Petersburg, though only thirty years old, has led a re markable life. From the time she was seven teen to the time she was twenty-eight she was in the hands of the police, without being guilty of any crime, and then, in revenge, she tried to assassinate a high offioial, w&s arrest ed, tried and acquitted. She then disap peared and the police have since been search ing for her. She has been reported as resid ing in Geneva, London and other places, but it is quite possible that sinoe then Vera Sassu litoh has been all the time conoealed in the Czar's capital, under the very noses of the po- lioe. The story of her life since the trial will, when known, prove at least sensational read ing. She is described, by a correspondent who recently saw her, as a woman of medium height, slightly built, prepossessing, and fair in complexion. "Her eyes," he says, "are nearly gray chestnut she called them herself and her glance is ordinarily slow. The dullness and restraints of the prison have driven all the youthfulness out of this hero ine. Her hair, which is of light brown, done up in two braids, is simply coiled into a hand some plait at the back of tbe head, tied up at the tips apparently with delicate blue ribbons. Her voice is full, coming from the chest. A poet would say, perhaps, that it comes from the heart. She seems to have only very slight regard for her personal appearance. She was attired in a black silk robe, very simply trimmed with white and blue. Later I saw her don a long brownish mantle, a broad brimmed straw hat, without flowers, but with a long ostrich feather. She did not put on her gloves, and her features were hidden be neath a short veil, reaching just below the lips." The Supreme Court of Miohigan has just delivered an opinion on an important ques tion relating to the law governing juries. When the jury in the oase before the court re tired to consider their verdict, an officer ac companied them and remained in the room during their deliberations. This fact was made the ground of a motion for a new trial, which was overruled by the court below, on the ground that the offioer did not converse with the jury. His mere presence, the court ruled, could not affect the result of the jury's deliberations, and henoe was no groand for setting aside the verdiot. The Supreme Court now overrules this de cision, and holds that the presence of an offi oer, or of any person, when the jury are de liberating on their verdiot, is unlawful, wheth er he does or does not converse with them, because such presence must operate as a re straint upon their freedom of action and ex pression. The very object of the jury's re tiring by themselves is that they may have op portunity for private and confidential discus sion. Tne presence of a single otner person in the room is an intrusion upon this privacy and confidence, and tends to defeat the pur pose fast which they are sent oat. In their private deliberations, the jury are likely to have occasion to comment with freedom upon the conduot and motives of parties and wit nesses, and to express views and beliefs that they could not express publicly without making bitter enemies. The law considers this privacy essential to an unrestrained and impartial verdict. "The public is also," said the court, "oonoerned in not having the de liberations of the jury reported tor tha news gatherers and scandal mongers outside. Ju rors are generally expected to keep their own counsel, beoauss they have an interest in doing so ; but the officer is under no corres ponding restraint, and it is through him that what takes plaoe in the jury-room is moot likely to leak out."

The two lectures recently delivered by Pro fessor Aba Gray to the Theological Sohool of Yale College are published in a book whioh bears the title "Natural Soienoe and Religion." In the first lecture Professor Gray traces the changes that have been wrought by investiga tion in tbe beliefs of scientific men during his own lifetime, with respect to the order of nature, and especially with respect to biology. Ha shows precisely what is the modern scien- f w "k Jaeme, bo to speak ; upon what It rests ; ar it is certain and how far conjectural, hy the tendency of changing soientifio belief has all been in one direotion. Having carefully distinguished between modern scien tific conceptions of natural order and the speculative deductions that have been drawn by certain individuals from these conceptions or from the facts upon whioh these conceptions rest having, in a word, explained what mod ern science actually teaches he passes, in his seoond leoture, to the consideration of the re lations of soienoe to religious belief. Con cerning this matter he says, among other things, that to a certain extent the attitude of thoughtful men in respeot to scientific be liefs, tendencies and anticipations may well be a waiting one. Of his own attitude he says: I accept substantially as facts, or as ap parently well grounded inferences, or as fair ly probable opinions according to their nature and degree the principal series of changed views which 1 brought before you in the preceding leoture. I have no particular predileotion for any of them ; and I have no particular dread of any of the consequences which legitimately flow from them, beyond the general awe and sense of total insuffic iency with whioh a mortal man contemplates the mysteries wbich shut him in on every side. I olaim, moreover, not merely allow ance, bnt the right to hold these opinions along with tbe doctrines of natural religion and the verities of the Christian faith. There are perplexities enough to bewilder our souls whenever and wherever we look for the causes and reasons of things ; but I am un able to perceive that the idea of the evolu tion of one speoies from another, and of all from an initial form of life, adds any new perplexity to theism. It might suffice to show that evolution need raise no other nor creator religious or philosophical difficulties than the views which have already been accepted, and held to be not inimical to religion. This book will be widely read and will give most of its readers a muoh clearer idea than they have had of what modern soience really teaches.

The principal personages of the story are a king and a queen "cast into exile by one of those revolutions of the people which make one think of earthquakes, thunder and lightning and voloanio eruptions." The kingdom of Illyria, over whioh they had reigned in joy, had come to hate its sovereigns, and they were obliged to flee in peasants' garb at night over the mountains to the sea, where a French ship carried them to the unknown trials of exile. They reached Paris, and with their life in that gay city the story proper begins. Here, with their one son and a few attend ants, they set up a miniature oourt, "the king living the idle yet well filled life of a young swell." The queen, now more a queen than ever, and giving her time "to protesting, conspiring and informing all tha oourts of Europe of their misfortunes," be came disgusted with her effeminate, weak, vacillating husband, and though they ap appeared united, they generally had nothing in common but their misfortunes and their child. The two characters are skillfully con trasted, and in the author's subtle analysis and development of each much of the interest of the tale is concentrated ; but the incidents are exciting, tbe scenes of Parisian life drawn with spirit, and the plot contrived and carried forward with so much skill that the reader's interest constantly increases.

The Yale Lectures on Preaching for 1879-80, delivered by Dr. Howard Crosby, are pub lished in attractive form by A. D. F. Ran dolph &, Co., New York, in a volume entitled "The Christian Preacher." There are seven of these leotnres. Iu the first and seoond Dr. Crosby discusses the physical and mental prerequisites of success in ministerial work. In the third he speaks of general knowledge and argumentive power as aids to tbe preach er's effectiveness. In the fourth lecturo he writes of "Disposition, Manner, Habits," de scending with great good sense to the most homely details, in the conviction that the lack of attention to details in themselves petty, causes the failure, more or less com mon, of many clergymen who might other wise have been successful in good work. The fifth lecture treats of "The Preacher's Godward Living," the sixth of "The Preacher and the World," and the seventh of "The Preacher's Relation to His Work." If youne preachers, or old ones either, would follow the sound and sensible advice given by Dr. Crosby in these lectures there would be fewer poor preachers. For Bale in this city by F. T. Jarman.

"Our Common School System," by Gail Hamilton, is, it is needless to say, a very sprightly and readable book. It contains, also, some sharp criticism of the way in wbich the common schools in cities are con ducted, and though the author is not always just, she hits the mark often enough to make her oritioism well worth reading. She "pitches into" high schools vigorously. "As it ia," gays she, "the State does neither one thing nor another. It does not confine itself to be stowing upon all the education that it re quires of all. Nor does it bestow upon the few whom it selects for especial training any thing to be compared to the education be stowed by private academies and oolleges. It complicates the school system, increases its expense and exposes it to hostility, and after all leaves its few beneficiaries far below, ri diculously below, the pupils of private institu tions. Every argument that applies to the State support of high schools applies equally to the State support of colleges." The book will be popular with teachers, for it oontains vigorous protests against things that hamper them. Published by Estes & Lauriat, Boston, and for sale in this oity by Judd, the book seller.

The last chapter ia devoted to establishing the proposition that the United States should control the Inter oceanic Canal, and the author abundantly suc ceeds in making it plain that such should be the case.

The following, which we are informed was refused publication in the Register, opposes some statements made in that paper concern ing the amendment to the charter offered by Captain Harmon, and shows that Mr. Har mon does not want any policeman unjustly treated. It also states what he really did say concerning the removal of Chief Allen. To the Editor of the Register : It is not often that I care to notioe any misrepresentation or falsehood published in your paper regarding myself, but the article in the Sunday Register headed "Ex-Chief Allen Talks Back" places me in such a po sition that I feel bound to correct some of the misstatements contained therein. Your reporter knew perfectly well that I stated plainly at the last meeting of the Board of Aldermen that I had no intention or desire to introduce anything into the charter revis ion which could in any way prevent any member of the polioe force from having a full hearing on any oharge preferred against him. He also knew that I (not Alderman Driscoll) offered an amendment to my own amendment, providing for the fullest hearing in all cases. Nevertheless you saw fit to fal sify the facts and make it appear that I de sired a star chamber commission. Your reporter knew equally well that Mr. Driscoll (not myself) referred to the Allen trial, in attempting to prove that the Board of Police Commissioners already have the power to remove men for inefficiency, aod that in replying to him I stated that Chief Allen was not removed for alleged inefficiency alone, but that gross negleot of duty was coupled with it, and added that in my opinion if the then Board of Police Commissioners had given him a fair hearing on specifio charges they (the Polioe Commissioners) would stand much better before the publio than they do to-day. Now, I do not desire either notoriety or political preferment. Were I seeking an of fice nothing in my judgment would further advance my interests than to be roundly abused by the Register and newspapers of like char acter at their convenience, but under tbe cir cumstances I must ask you to either let me alone, or stop distorting my statements.

She was to meet her adored one on the 9 o'clock Oakland boat, and it wanted fifteen minutes of the hour. Her hand was on the door to go out when it struck her that she had forgotten to line her left eyebrow. Rushing to the glass to rectify this, she . discovered a small red spot, commemorative of a departed pimple. A dab of lily-white settled that de fect, and she was about to make a fresh start when a backward glance assured her that her new hat was not as becoming as it should be. So she stopped just long enough to give it a punoh over one ear and a "hyke"in the back. Then her"Recamier locks" wanted a little ar ranging,and an inch of blonde must be pinned across her nose. Then she parted her lips to see if her filled teeth showed very plainly, and that started a most seduotive dimple in one cheek whioh suggested a scrap of black court plaster on its very verge to call attention to its dangers, like a sign board on a thinly frozen pond. Then she tipped the glass and stuck in the curling tongs to hold it, and walked across the room with her head over her shoulder to get a back view, gave her drapery a twitch here and a pat there, tried to see how long a step she could take without bursting the tapes, gave herself a little shake like a sparrow after a shower, changed her four but ton gloves for six, sprinkled Lubin's latest on her handkerchief, stamped her little Frenoh heels once or twice to settle herself, and, seiz ing her parasol in the most approved style to show the lace to advantage, started for the ferry, where a smiling offioial, either in fit of admiration or sarcasm, offered her his glass with whioh to watch the fast receding boat, already half across the bay.
