HALL k BOH, A I "IK I J. the X It A MI'S. evnu states which nave not yet experi enced the blessings of a tramp law will make it hot for tramps naxt summer. Among them is Massachusetts. A bill for a tramp law has been lingering in the Legislature of that State for soma time. Lawyers and a few others have opposed it with the same arguments that were used against the beneficent tramp law of Connecticut, but the opposition seems to have only had the good effect of making its pro visions more stringent. As the bill now stands, and as it is consid- sidered certain to become a law, it provides that any person convicted of being a tramp shall be imprisoned in the house of correction or in the Btate work-house at Bridgowater for not less than six months nor mora than two years. In Connecticut any person convicted of buiog a tramp is punished by imprisonment in the State prison not more than one year. The Massachusetts bill also provides that any tramp who shall enter any dwelling house or other building without the consent of the owner or occupant thereof, or shall wilfully or maliciously threaten to injure or id jure any person therein, or shall be found carrying any fire-arm or other dangerous weapon, or shall threaten to do any injury to any person, or to the real or personal estate of another, shall be punished by imprisonment in the house of correction not less than one nor more than five years, or in the State work-house at Bridgowater not less than one nor more than three years. The similar provision in the Con necticut law is : "Any tramp who Bhall wil fully and maliciously injure any person, where such offense is not now punishable by impris-' onment in the State prison, or shall be found carrying any lire-arm or other dangerous I weapon, shall be punished by imprisonment in the Stato prison not more than thres years " Unlike the Connecticut law, the Masaachu- j setts law will not contain a clause offsrirtg a reward of five dollars to any one who arrests and brings a tramp to conviction. This clause ha3 worked well in this State cud in New Hampshire, but there was a feeling in tbo Massachusetts Legislature that itwasanoecsn sary and was too much like paying a bounty for the, arrest of wajfarers. But the law oau be made effsctive without it. The Springfield Republican says: "Ultra is now a great alarm on the subject of trnaspe in the rural portions of Slassaehusatts, result ing from such outrages as the Groton murder, and tho raeoalu who have infested the State will bo caught and imprisoned when there is occasion for it, notwithstanding the quibbles of lawyers and the reluctance of petty courts to sentence men for long terms upon evidence that seems a little short weight. Public opin ion will now sustain and urge on the local authorities in enforcing the law, r.nd we shall probably see Massachusetts clearer of tramps next summer than at any time for several years." That they will. We congratulate the people of Massachusetts on their approaching deliverance from the intolerable tramp nuisance. If their law works half as well as the Connecticut law has they will have abun dant reason to bless it. umns, whence an enchanting view is obtained not only of the Gulf of Naples, but also of those of Bale, and Gaeta, each dotted with its islands. The charge is directly made by the Wash ington correspondent of the Springfield Re publican that otrtain leading men of the House Committee on Pacific Railroads are working for and with stock-jobbers. The correspondent says : "The attacks that have been made upon the Texas and Northern Paoifio have all been di rected toward the stock of thosa companies, and have not meant anything so far as legis lation is concerned. Chalmers, of Mississip pi, has been the leading man in these opera tions, and it appears that C. P. Huntington of the Central Pacific and Charles Sherill, his rep resentative here, are the men whom Mr. Chal mers is serving. The recent report whioh Chalmers presented to the House against the extension of timo for constructing the North ern and Texas Paoifio railroads was familiar to certain brokers on Wall street before it was presented to the House by Chalmers. Well informed men go so far as to assert that Chalmers was not tho author of the report, but was merely the vehicle by which Hunting ton sent the document into the House." If Mr. Chalmers is in this business he ought to be thoroughly exposed and punished, if there is any way to do it. NEW COJIETSi. ,. EDITORIAL NOTES. The darkest Republican horse that is now in sight is Justice Samuel F. Millar, of the Supreme Court. District Attorney Phelps, cf New York, who knows a great deal about criminals, says he has yet to hear of a single case of a woman coming from the penitentiary anything other than a more hardened sinner than when she entered it. The Litchfield Enquirer is not at all pleased with the meek and unresisting behavior of the Litohfield county delegates to the Republican State convention. The Enquirer says : "Had the Litchfield county delegates fully under stood and asserted their rights, he (Sam Fes- sonden) would never Mv.i misrepresented this district as he now mrjt unquestionably will.' The innholdera cf Chicago are evidently bent on making hay while the sun shines. An Ohio gentleman who wrote recently to one of the hotels in Chicago to socuro "a couple of small rooms, not particular on what floor, but with a communicating door if pos sible," during the sessions of the Republican National Convention, was informed in reply that the cost of such accommodations would be $50 a day.

Perhaps there will be a railroad across the Desert of Sahara by or soon after the time whan the toot of the locomotive's whistle is heard in the Holy Land. The exploration of the desert with a view to the construction of railroad across tt has now fairly begun. Colonel Flatter's expedition left Wargle on the 5th ult on their southward march. In addi tion to the leader, the party oomprisss nine soientifio officers and twelve Frenoh soldiers, besides numerous camel drivers. Those who saw the famous Island No. 10 in the Mississippi river during the late war and have not been there since, would be greatly surprised at the present appearance of the island. In war time it contained two or three fertile plantations, and on it the rob els placed three thousand men and erected earth works to obstruct the passage of the federal gunboats, but most of tbe island has been awept away by the river, and there is now left nly a sand bank overgrown with cotton-wood and willows. The land on the shore where th rebels had their batteries has also been washed away. Where Arc itio Itailroad Commission- To the Editor of the jouenai. and uotjrieb : Your note concsrning the Derby railroad crossing a few days since has been highly en dorsed by niapy of our buslnoss men. A day's experience will show tbe astonishing and outrageous fact that such a business centre and thoroughfare as Custom House Square is used daily aa a switching yard for tho Derby railroad, and long trains blook up the square for many minutes at a time. Where are the Railroad Commissioners ? O. B. O. Capitalists are just now supposed to be paying a good deal of attention to the slate that exists in great abundance in various parts of New England, and it is said that the more investigation there is made the better the promise of profit. It is certain that there is any quantity cf slate in New England, and that it is of superior qual ity. The demand for it is constantly increas ing, and it can be cheaply prodnced. There is also much less risk in investments in the slate business than in ordinary mining com panies, because every stockholder can see the mine with his own eyes, and is not obliged to take anything on trust. Now for a slate boom. The American double iron rope system has been adopted by the oonstruotora of the rail road up Mount Vesuvius. Tkere are two lines of rails, each provided with a carriage divid ed into two compartments, and capable of holding six persons. While one carriage goes up the other comes down, thus establishing a counterpoise) which considerably economizes the steam of the stationary traction engine. Who incline is extremely steep, commencing at 40 , increasing to 63 , and continuing at 50 to the summit. Every possible precau tion has been taken against accident, and the railroad itself is protected against possible flows of lava by an enormous wall. The as cent will be made in eight to ten minutes. To obtain the necessary supply of water, large cisterns have been constructed, which in the winter will be filled with the snow that often falls heavily on Vesuvius. " This snow will be quickly melted by the internal heat, and, be sides the water thus obtained, the frequent rainfall will also be conducted into the cis terns. An elegant cafe restaurant, capable of accommodating 100 person?, will be attached to the station. Above the entrance to the latter is an ample terrace supported on ool- Durbaiik- Biblical liecluires. To the Editor of the Journal and Coobieb : In an article in Thursday's Coubieb entitled "Mr. Burbank's Lectures,' there is a refer ence to the meaning of the word "soul" as distinct from the body, li is claimed to mean only lifo. From our reading of the Scriptures we infer that soul or spirit some times means a conscious intelligence able to feel joy or grief, as in Job 14, 22 : "But his flash upon him shall have pain and his soul within him"- Ehall mourn." "Beloved, I wish above ail things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth." (3 John, 1, 2.) There are many other pas sages of like import. That the soul can ex ist without the body we have two witnesses, the appearance of Samuel after he was dead, in the Old Testament, and the appearance of Moses at the Transfiguration, in the New Tes tament. - B.

My son, if you do a mean thing, if you are guilty of a small spiteful action, if you wreak some paltry, shabby vengeance on your neighbor, if you do anything supremely little and cowardly and hateful, and still hold op your head and want to be respected by the world, just lay this flattering unction toyour soul you are the only man deceived ; no one is fooled save yourself. If you are mean everybody knows it, the rest of mankind as well as yourself. Your neighbors may not it is more than likely they will not tell you of it. They will not express their honest opinions on the subject to your face, but when you lie down at night and blush over your meanness by yourself, in the dark, don't you add foolishness to your wick edness by hugging to yourself the flattering delusion that nobody knows it. They all know it, and they all talk about it. Don't you know every mean thing your neighbors do ? Don't they all tell you all the mean things they know about each other ? And do you suppose they don't know all your little nesses, if you have any, just as well ? My dear boy, you must know that this shrewd old world is too sharp for any of us, and that you can't fool it. It will hold you at your own es timate of yourself ; not your publicly ex pressed estimate, maybe, bnt at your own pri vate, honest estimate ; the estimate yon hold yourself at when you have turned out the light, and crept into bed, and know that there is just one being in all the universe that is searching your heart as closely as and far more honestly and purely than you can. And so, if you want the world to think yon really honest and manly and noble, my son, yon have got to be honest and manly and noble. Otherwise, I don't oare what it says it thinks of you. Be honest with yourself, my boy, so that when the day is done, and the blessing of the right falls upon yon, yon can shake your self by the hand, and say, "Old boy, yon have made a fearful mess of it to-day ; yon have stumbled and faltered ; you have blotted the record, you have just bristled with faults, but you did it all in honesty, in human ignorance and wilfulness, and you havn't lied to any body, and when you go out on the street, no man's accusing glances can make your eye drop."

A great deal of red is used on black dresses. AU tints and shades of mauve are fashiona ble. Full scarf drapery for the skirt is among tne coming styles. Heliotrope and cream is the favorite com bination of oolors this season. Threads of green, blue, yellow, black and white make up the oolor called serpent. Small sunflowers, from one-third to half the natural size, are popular as corsage bou quets. Gilt and silver balls, both plain and facet ted, form the heads of fancy pins for the hair. New dress buttons come in two sizes one intended for the coat and the other for the dress waist. The fancy stuffs of the spring and summer will be employed for both relief effects and for combinations. Beaded passementeries will ba largely used for trimming silks and satins used in costumes and wraps for the early spring. Dragons, bees, butterflies and birds in in definite forms appear among the plain leaves and other Eastern designs of lately imported spring goods. Tne most exquisite or grenaaines are tne new ribbon stripes whioh present alternate bands of plain black and of bright color bar red with black stripes. Tbe SDamsh colors, mingled with red and yellow, find much favor in flowers and Mare chale Neil and bright red and jacqueminot roses are used in the same culster. One of the New York dry goods firms has recently displayed a gown embroidered with moss rose buds, in which real moss was used to make the calyx of each flower. The long overdress, which has recently been revived, is nothing but a gracefully draped princess polonaise, which requires only a flounce to complete the costume. The foulards which have dots as large as a quarter of a dollar are used for street suits, but there are plain foulards for quiet women who object to looking too much like leop ards. Evening dresses are made with the bodice open, in the shape of a square or an oval, and trimmed with draperies, lace and fringe. The sleeves are finished at the elbow, and trimmed to correspond. The latest novelty in the way of making up velvet is to have- the dress composed of a per fectly plain corsage, plain coat sleeves and a plain demi-tratned skirt without flounces, tab lier or overskirt. All sorts of feathery ravelled ruohes and fluffy trimmings will be in vogui in the sea son's millinery.

Two pleated pieces of point d esprit, or of crepe lisse ruching, a man of midule age, blase, with many expe riences in such affairs, who should have told this foolish girl that she was making ship wreck of her life, instead of rjursuinc the ac quaintance and playing npon her romantio tendencies. This was in 1873. The clandes tine acquaintance ripened into a passion ; the man was eooentrio, fasoinating, of good birth, of considerable fortune, and possibly as scru pulous in such matters as the average of his class. Friends objected in vain. All the idealism of a young girl, and all her hatred of humdrum, were enlisted. She refused to hear anything to the discredit of her new ac quaintance. In 1875 the pair took a trip to Florida in each other's society. There is no evidenoe of illicit relations ; but the e3oapade compromised the young lady irrevocably. It is to the honor of the man that he married her in Philadelphia on their return; to his dis honor, that he allowed her to compromise her self by romantio devotion to what she sup posed to be her ideal. Three months later, having seen her idol shattered, her ideal brok en, the poor girl applied for a divorce in Utah, with the oonnivance of the husband, who found such romantic devotion oppressive. The divorce was obtained ; and her life and sooial position wreoked, she tried to redeem herself. How vain such a struggle is every person of experience well knows 1 In her de spair, she drowned her regrets in opium ; a few years of sad experience followed. Her equivocal position made her a prey to the ra pacity of land-ladies and hotel proprietors. Debt, disgrace, disgust of life, sickness, and opium languor finish the picture. An attempt to break the habit was followed by a fatal dose, and the brilliant girl of 1870 became the ' subject of a coroner's inquest in 1880. The tale is not a new one; but it is.rnfortunately, a true story of the peril of inserting a Derson- al in a daily newspaper, and of th disaster that may follow the impracticable pursuit of a morma laeai.

Zuila, who hung head downward from a trapeze, and while the great audience wero breathlessly watching the feats of the wonderful Davene family, consisting of one man and three women, who were going through their daring trapeze acts, above the London ring, Miss Luoy Davene, who had just launched herself from a pedestal nearly twenty feet high to make a swinging leap and be caught in the arms of her father, who hung head downward fifty feet away, was seen to quit her hold on the bar of the flying trapeze and fall with a sickening thud to the ground below. Men groaned and women shrieked and hid their faces. For an instant one turned up and tho other down, with arib- j tae Poor 8lrl J stretched out upon the j (jiuuuu u&a uutj ueuu, Have iur n Biigac ire j mor of her limbs.

A costume of blue watered silk is worn with a deep brown sacque having a cashmere border two inches wide, and has a frill of the same ribbon all around its collar. Shirlev Dare tells of a pretty dress which has no kilt plaiting or shirring about it, except in a plaited satin belt, which hangs in front. The underdress is cut into points on the lower edge, and so is the ovsrskirt, and neither is draped. The waist and overskirt are cut to gether, and the sleeves are of the bishop shape. Urepe usse is still usea to soiten tne enect of lace ruffles at the neck and wrists, but it is hardly needed with the soft plaitings of Languedoc lace. It ia not considered proper to use it by itself except with mourning goods or with evening costumes in diaphanous ma terials, but some of the new styles are tempt ing to any one. A handsome dinner dress, lately made, is en princtss, the tablier being of violet faille, oovered with narrow side plaitings, and the train of violet velvet. The waist has the Pompadour neck, and opens on a vest of violet satin. The side -forms, of the velvet, run into deep paniers, which are attached to tho train. The cheviots of pure wool loosely woven are among the favorite fabrics for early spring costumes that will also serve for traveling dresses during the summtr. They have what was called last year the "fUnnel finish ;" are evenly bnt loosely woven, and are without luster. They are in small pin-head checks of cream with brown, two drab shades, pale olive with darker green, and two shades of gray. Figured materials are now used for entira dresses, being oombined largely with material of one shade, which is used for the folds, flounces, revers, vest in a word, for all the trimmings of the dress. This combination, however, is not so pretty as the reverse, which consists of a plain dress with accessories mads of figured fabrics. Pretty percales ana camorics nave aarK blue, lavender or gray grounds, strewn with white polka dots. They are trimmed with narrow gathered mfflss edged with Kussian braid edging or with torchon.

Bands of plain blue gingham border the ruffles of strip ed blue and white cambrio dresses. New York cloth suits are mads np with plain underskirts and overskirts that look like aprons in front, but have the ends hidden be neath the soft draperies of the back. The basque is a double-breasted coat, and has a bow set on the postilion at the back, and another at the throat, matching the satin pip ings of the garment. The collar is of open worked embroidery and the cuffs match it. Plain red oil calico is imported to make up in combination wim ngurea gooas. ins Scotch ginghams, sometimes called Madras ginghams, are egain provided to make the uFeful, pretty dresses that came into favor last vear.

In seleotine velvet it is desirable to get that with elastic pile that will be least easily flat tened by use. Some of the richest velvets with thickest pile are often the most easily man-ad. The wav to test this is for the pur chaser to obtain samples and crease them by pressing a snarp-eagea paper-itniit, ngauin the pile, or in other ways, and also moisten ing it slightly. If the pile does not come up after the pressure is removed it certainly will not resist that whioh comes with even the most careful usage. Ruined by a "Personal." Sad History of a New York Belle. From the New York Times. There is something so well fitted to point a moral in the suicide (or possibly accidental death from opium poisoning) of Mrs. Harriet Van Buren, formerly Mrs. George F. Dutch, that brief reference to certain facts not yet published may be pardonable. Ten years ago Miss Harriet Van Buren was a familiar figure in one of toe oldest ana most exclusive circles in New York society. Young, beauti ful, highly cultivated, and accomplished, al though her income at her father's death was small about $1,500 a year she was the pet and ornament of an extremely exclusive circle. As is the case with most young ladies of her age, she was as romantic and visionary as she was accomplished, Had there been some real work in life npon which to wreak the su perabundant sentiment inoident to young women of her age, the tragedy that ultimately ensued might have been avoided, and a long and useful life substituted for an erratic ca reer and an early and tragic death. Idleness, one of the misfortunes of opulence ana an as sured income, is as sure to develop the latent capacity of a young girl for morbidezza, as it is to develop a kindred state of mind in a young man born to affluence and laziness. In an evil hour, this gay, accomplished girl, with noble possibilities before her, mserteaa per sonal in a daily newspaper, soliciting the ac quaintance of some accomplished gentleman. The mystery, the dash of romance, about ac quaintances thus formed is one of the elements calculated npon by designing rascals, whose proverb is that heroism and desperation are so nearly allied that few know the difference be tween tnem The personal was answered by held by his feet Davene, who was to have oanght the girl if the leap had been success fully performed. The woman forgot that she was a cirous performer and that ten thousand eyes were upon" her, and only remembered that she was a mother. Davene dropped to the ground, and his wife freed herself in an incredibly short time aud followed him, and both almost flaw after the swift gymnast, who carried the bleeding girl out of the sight of the horrified audience. While this was happening Dr : Freak Muhlenberg of 1,009 Chesnut street, Dr. T.Hewson Bradford of 1,005 Pine street, aud Dr. H. Earnest Goodman of 1,427 Ches nut street, left their places in the audience and disappeared behind the curtain which hung in the passageway through which poor Lucy Davene had been carried. AU this oc cupied but a few seconds, and the audience Lad scarcely time to comprehend what had oc curred before word came ouf'She is all right," and in a minute more Fish and Melville were whirling around the ring in their lightning bareback acts, in friendly rivalry, and the per formance went on as though nothing had oc curred, so far as the audience oould see. But just behind the curtain which separated the unemployed performers from the public, on a rude stuffed tick used for tumblers to alight upon in their prodigious leaps, lay the unconscious girl, presenting a sight whioh made old showmen turn away sick and shud dering. Her blonde wig was gone and her brown hair, dripping with ice water, was brushed back from her face, from which every particle of oolor had fled. Her eyes were closed, and her breath came in short, quick gasps. On her left temple a great blue lump, nearly as big as a man's fist, had raised up, and to this one of the physicians was holding a lump of ice. In the back of her head there was a great gash, from whioh the blood flowed freely until it was staunched by another physician. Lucy is a little, slight thing, and as she lay there in her ring cos tume, which was soiled and bloody, she look ed like a mere child, broken and dying. The mother, sobbing wildly and talking incoher ently, bent over the girl, bathing her head in ice watsr, while Davene was running around like one distracted. There was no lack of willing hands and willing feet to lend their aid to the relief of the sufferer. It was a strange and touching sight to see the troops of performers, in their fantastic costumes and horror-stricken faoes, pressing around to offer their assistance. The grotesque painting on the faces of the clowns even could not hide the looks of sympathy and kindly solicitude. There were many expressions of anger and in dignation by the male members of the com pany that women should be permitted to at tempt such dangerous feats. "By ," said one of the clowns, "this whole flying trapeze business should be abolished ; some one is always getting crippled or killed by it. I cannot look at it. I have known so many accidents that the thought of it makes me sick. The only merit of a flying trapeze act is its danger. It should be forbidden by law." ManyBimilar expressions were heard from other athletes and gymnasts, who were stand ing about. It was a long time before the cause of the accident was generally under stood, even by the members of the company. Many said that the girl's hands were sweaty and had slipped. The truth, however, is that as she sprang from the pedestal and went to throw her feet over the bar on which she was holding by hor hands, her head struck, with terrific force, the pedestal on whioh her feet had stood a moment before. This knocked her senseless, and, relaxing her hold, she stif fened out and fell, without the power to make an effort to save herself. After tbe first efforts at restoration had been made, and the flow ot blood had been stop ped, the mattress on which the girl lay was picked up and carried into the ladies' dressing room, where for half an hour longer the phy sicians kept up their efforts to revive the in jured girl, but without success. Many be lieved that she was dying, and word went round that the physicians said she could not live. This was an exaggeration, though atone time they said that her symptoms were very unfavorable and that her pulse was very weak and uncertain. In half an hour six strong men again took up the mattress, and passing ont nnder the edge of the oanvas bore Lucy, ac companied by the physicians, to her boarding house, on the opposite side of Broad street. On the way she vomited freely, throwing np considerable blood. After she had been plac ed in bed the physioians renewed their efforts in her behalf, and her symptoms improved gradually, although she only partly regained eonsoiousnes3, and her face looked like the dead. The doctors said that her skull was not fractured, but that it was impossible to tell what internal or spinal injuries she might have sustained. At one time she showed some symptoms of concussion of the spine. They said last night that they believed she would recover and without sustaining any permanent injuries, but Dr. Muhlenberg said that spin al injuries often did not develop themselves until some time after they occurred. The Pope in Poor Health. A Borne dispatch to the London Standard says : Various statements, more or less erro neous, have been current recently respecting the Pope's health. The truth is, that though no notable malady exists, the holy father's medical advisers are not satisfied with his condition. Every cause of moral trouble that arises and but too many such causes are constantly arising throws him into a state of nerveus prostration. Overwork and want of the exercise and salubrious air to which he has been accustomed are telling npon him disastrously, and those who are around him assert that his health is failing visibly. In vulgar bnt expressive phrase, he is "worried to death," and his nervous tem perament is not one whioh can endure the se vere wear and tear of the position whioh is made for him. His medical advisers are very anxious that he should have change of air this summer ; but it seems that the threats and pressure brought to bear npon him by those who wonld fain chain him to the stake, have hitherto failed to prevent him from taking any such decision. The conscious mendacity with whioh the story of the papal captivity was published, urbi et orbi, for so many years is being cruelly expiated by one whohadnopar in the invention or diffusion of it.
