Under t.Uo Elliott House, THE KNIGHTS OF LABOR Some nneasinees has been felt concerning the oharaoter and objects of the secret organi zation known as the Knights of Labor. The order has been said to number a million and a half members, to have Bach effective and thorough machinery that it oould overthrow the whole system of the United States Gov ernment in twenty-four hours, and to have such purposes as to make it not unlikely that it would ultimately direot its powers against the Government. ' And many other preposter ous statements concerning the Knights and their aims have been made. Those who have been lying awake nights in rexpeotation of an uprising by this alarming and powerful organization will be somewhat reassured by the aooount of it and Us objects, given by Grand Secretary Litchman, a mem ber of the Massachusetts Legislature, and ap parently a man of peace. It seems that in stead of 1,600,000 Knights there are at most only 500,000. The order has been in exist ence eleven years. It is a secret organization, not, as has been' charged, for unlawful pur poses, but to shield from oppression those members who, in the infancy of the ordsr, were compelled to assume positions of lead ership, and to proteot them till such time as the operations of the organization furnish the means for employment to those o are "black-listed" or victimized by their ' em ployers for participation in the order. The order is divided into three branohes Local, District and General Assembly. The looal or ganization is intended to be an association for productive distribution and saving co-opera tion. The District Assembly, which must be oomposed of not less than five local bodies, is intended to be, in like manner, the productive, distributive and saving agency of the seotion of country covered by the looal bodies under its jurisdiction. The General Assembly is the supreme head of authority in the order, and oomposed of representatives of the various District Assemblies, meeting annually. It has already held three annual meetings. The of fice of the General Assembly is to have a gen -eral supervision of the workings of the order, and to form a grand wholesale agency, by which, through the Distriot Assemblies, the local co-operative agencies are to be supplied. The theory Is that, in time, if necessary, the General Assembly shall own and operate mines, railroads,'f actories and farms, and thus produos and supply at cost prioe everything that can feed, clothe or shelter mankind. The position of the order in relation to strikes is thus described : "We do not ap prove of strikes ; in faot, we resolutely sot our faces against them. We regard the strike as a relic of the past, which it would be well to bury from sight forever. One grand aim of onr order Is to educate working men and teach them that there are better and cheap er jnethods of attaining the name dbda which they formerly thought the strike could reach. We believe that the money spent in making a strike can be much more advantageotfsly employed in developing and extending the prinoiple of co-operation. Our plan is, if a difficulty occurs, instead of sustaining the strike, to take if need be, the branch of labor represented, invest sufficient oapital in the name of the General Assembly, and make the strikers producers Instead of consumers of the bread of idleness." The order is not political in its aims In the sense of being a political party, for men of all the parties belong to it. Bnt,in the judg ment of the Grand Secretary, three-fourths of the members would work heartily for the candidate of the Greenbaok party, if nomi nated upon a platform which opposed monop oly in land, labor and money. It has been said, on the other hand, that Mr. Blaine has a strong hold upon the Knights. From the above it does not seem that the workings of the order are contrary to the in terests of the general public When thsy are the faot will no doubt be speedily discovered, and until then the timid ean rest in peace, so far as the Knights of Labcr are conoerned.

Dry goods clerks with $100 cash capital can take courage. Sir Hugh Allan, the Dominion capitalist and steamboat man, now worth from $10,000,000 to $15,000,000, began life for himself as a olerk in a dry goods store, with $100 as his available resonroes. It seems aiittio queer that the life of Ed ward Coleman, a New York thief, should have been saved by a copy of the Gospel of St. Matthew, which he had In Ms pocket; and which turned away the bullet aimed at his heart by a pslioeman. A pack of cards or a whiskey bottle wonld have been the regular thing. The Springfield Bepnblioan says it is an open secret that Professor Tyler of North ampton took to Worcester a letter from Presi dent Seelye saying that college duties would probably prevent his going to Chicago, and protesting against the use of his name. "Some of the most patriotio men in the com monwealth nnited to persuade Professor Ty ler to suppress this declaratien, feeling that Dr. Seelye owed a greater dnty to' the ooun-try." That which was facetiously predicted con cerning the telephone that people wonld sit at home in their parlors on Sunday and hear preaching by it has already come to pass to a limited extent. On Sunday a telephone was placed in Plymouth, church, Brooklyn, and connected with a house in New York and one in Elizabeth, New Jersey, and a great part of the morning sermon of Mr. Beecher was" dis tinctly heard in the two houses. When Mr. Beecher thnmped his desk a sudden croaking as of a frog sounded over the line. Stephen D. Bingham, of Lansing, Miohigan, ohairman of the Republican State committee from 1870 to 1878, is sure Grant's nomina tion would make the State doubtful, as well as Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, California and Oregon. Mr. Bingham counts sp 15,000 bona-fide Michigan Republicans who would bolt, besides the Independent and Greenback wings of the party, and uses his statements to back up the magnetio Blaine as the' man to unite on. The Blaine men don't want Grant anyhow.he says, and would unite on Edmunds, Garfield or Waahburne to beat him. A curious ease has been unravelled by the Treasury officials. A man got the number of some United States bonds held by a friend and applied to the Treasury for duplicate bonds, showing, apparently, properly indorsed letters of administration fer the original owner, who, he stated, before his death gave the bonds to his brother, who with them was lost at sea on a vessel which investigation showed had gone down with all on board. The duplicates were accordingly reissued and at once redeemed. Now the owner turns up with the original bonds and asks their redemption, and it is found that the letters of administration were forgeries. The original bonds will, of course, have to be redeemed, and the question is, whether or not a special appropriation will be Br. Freeman Clarke charged some friends of the temperance movement In Massachu setts with undue haste in critioising the St. Botolph club of Boston, and Wendell Phil lips makes a most effective reply to the charge. The following is the closing paragraph: "Fashion in Boston imperiously orders the use and offer of wine. The city government is created and ruled by rum. Trade, wealth, the press and society defer to it. Blind habit fancies itself sci ence, and parades as suoh in supporting it. The pulpit, dabbling in all politics except what touches reform, and reading Shakespeare to idlers while some of the finest genius of the oity is dropping into drunkards' graves, contents itself with insulting temperanoe men ; and panders, like a cringing lackey, to the drinking fashions of the pews, both by precept and example ; now and then trying to hide its degradation and throw dust in the world's eyes by some empty rhetorio about the awful evil of intemperanoe." We fear there is altogether too much truth in this hard hit, and that Boston is not the only oity where it applies. The plan of night medioal service laid be fore the New York Academy of Medicine by Dr. Henri Nachtel, which was favorably re ported upon by a committee and referred to the Board of Health, has been put in the form of a bill and will be short ly introduced in the State Senate The main features of the plan are the keep ing of registers at the polioe stations of tho names of such physicians as voluntarily pledge themselves to respond to any night oall made by a policeman detailed from the station to make such call in behalf of the per son applying to the preoinot offioer In oharge. The physicians' fees are to be $3 for eaoh visit, which may be collected from the Board of Health in case the patient does not pay, and that department shall endeavor to collect from the patient. The plan proposes the ap propriation of a sum not to exceed. $3,000 a year, and that the expenses for suoh service shall be a regular item in the budget of the Board of Health. Provision for the calling of consulting physicians is made. Any phy sician who shall twice fail to respond to oalls made under these conditions, without valid exouse, shall have his name stricken from the lists. RECENT PUBLICATIONS. Few reoent publications have created suoh a stir as the "Memoirs of Mme. de Bemusat," who was lady in waiting to the Empress Jose phine, and consequently an inmate of Napo leon's household, and a close observer of his personal life. She begins her work with ob servations on the character of the emperor, prefacing them thus : "I am far from saying that Bonaparte always appeared to me in the light in which I see him now ; my opinions have progressed, even as he did ; but I am so mar from being influenced by personal feelings, that I do not think it is possible for me to de viate from the exaot truth." After giving an idea of Napoleon's personal appearance she represents him as "deficient in education and in manners, and although remarkable for oer tain intellectual qualities, no man was ever less lofty of soul ; he dreaded the ties of af fection ; he endeavored to Isolate every one ; he never sold a favor without awakening a sense of uneasiness ; he could not pardon vir tue till he succeeded in weakening its effect by ridicule ; he cannot Jbe said to have truly loved glory, for he never hesitated to prefer success to it." "A cowardly act," she reports Bonaparte to have said on one occasion, "what does that matter to me ? Understand that I should not fail to commit one if it were useful to me." "I am disposed," the writer goes on to say, "to believe that Bonaparte, almost al ways exclusively occupied by politlos, was never awakened to love except by vanity, yet he had some affection for his first wife ; and if he was ever really stirred by any emotion it was by her and for her." And so on, the pic ture being always far from flattering. Mad ame Bonaparte is represented as of an exceed ingly jealous disposition, but with naturally gentle and pleasing manners. Thus the nar rative progresses until the year 1804, when comes a description of the foundation of the empire, of the effects and causes of Bona parte's aocession to the throne, of tho new court, and (in the same year) of the pope's arrival in Paris, the religious marriage of the emperor and Josephine, and the coronation of the empress. The stirring eveDts of 1805, when war with Austria was declared, are re counted with many details. In 1806, we are entertained with descriptions of the court eti quette and of the slate of literature and arts. The reminiscences for 1806-1807 include tho reasons for the war with Prussia In 1808, we hear about the war with Spain and the emperor's projsots for Josephine's divorce. The standpoint from which this tale-bearing but fasoinating writer viewed Bonaparte is one from which it is given the world to look at few great men of history, and perhaps it is just as well that It is so. But people will read this story, entertaining in style and inci dent, aside from the scandal it retails, with great avidity.

A last chapter is de voted to comparisons of schylus, Sophocles, Euripides and Shakespeare, and the author oonoludes an essay as simple as it is scholarly, with the hope that the view of Sophocles here 'set forth may not be distasteful to those who have studied him longest and loved him best, and that "those to whom any part of what has been said is new, may find on further study that it is not untrue."

Tliv JKleetric Purifier. A Statement by ?Ir. Kinsralana Siiiltu. New Haven, April 19. To the Editor of the Joukxai. and Courieb : Two articles have appeared in your columns claiming for Mr. Baker, of Had Wing, the honor of the discovery of purifying middlings by friotional electricity. Mr. Bakor charges that I did not originate the idea but stole it from him. Without going into particu lars allow me to state that this charge is wholly false. Before I ever saw Mr. Baker I had oonoeived this idea, experimented, and communicated it to others, all of which I am in a position to sustain and prove beyond a shadow of a doubt, when the proper time arrives. When the description of the Eleotric Purifier was first published here I was 3,000 miles away and hence cannot hold myself responsible for inaccuracies con cerning the time and manner of my discovery.

In Vermont No Snonr Heaittlf nl Scen ery The Cnrtons Frozen Well A Tale of Otter Creek.. Bbandon, Vt, April 16. To the Editor of the Joubnai. and Ooubibb : I left New Haven Tuesday and came up to this region, where I expected to find some snow, but there is no more snow to be seen than there is in July ; not a vestige of snow on the mountains, and tho Connecticut river is quite low. I cannot see how the lumber men are going to float their logs to market, as they depend on the melting of the snow on the mountains to swell the streams so they oan float them down. The weather is quite warm. The ther mometer marked 70 in -the shade yesterday. This is a beautiful summer resort. Up near the top of the mountain is a lake, covering several hundred acres, called Silver lake. You stand on its banks and you oan see the sur rounding country for a great many miles. You look down beneath you several hundred feet and you see another large lake called Dunmore lake. A short distance from that you see another one covering 150 acres. This one is called Hitchcock pond. It has no vis ible inlet or outlet, and is the one that, sup plies this place with water. The water is very dear, and is as nice water as I ever drank. It is 170 feet above this place, so they have a good fall of water. I visited yesterday a curiosity. It is called the frozen well. When it was dug about twenty feet they cameto frozen ground. They dug through the frost twenty-one feet more and oame to water, bnt the well is frozen the year round. I could get so water from it, as it was frozen solid. You oan look down about thirty feet with a looking' glass, and it Is nothing but ice from there to the bottom. They dug down in a westerly direotion and found the same thing, but north or south of it you find water at twenty feet and no frost. It is a worse puzzle than the fifteen puzzle to find out what causes it. Otter, oreek is a river running through Rutland and this place. The water is very clear, so vou oan see things as plainly on the bottom as though there was noj water there; ana speas-mg aooac Otter Oreek reminds me of an occurrence that happened on its banks last summer. Three young men started from Rutland in a buggy to go up the stream about three miles to have a bath in a deep hole there was at that place. They undressed and placed their clothes in the Du8gy to keep them out of the dirt, and one of them jumped into the water and solashed it, when away went the horse and' buggy down the street at a two-minute gait with their clothes in the buggy. The horse got home with a pair of shafts and part of a har ness. The young men did not attempt to fol low, although they were In as good a oondition -to race as a dipped horse is in winter, and they had to stay in that embarrassing oondi for some three hours before relief oame. G. B. A Rustic View of KubinsTteln. From the Quarterly Elocutionist. Well, sir, be had the blandest,biggest,oatty oornedest pianner you ever laid eyes on ; somethin' like a distracted billiard table on three legs. . The lid was hoisted, and mighty well it was. If it hadn't been he'd a tore the entire ineides clean out, and scattered 'em to the four winds of heaven. Played well? You bet he did ; but don't in terrupt me. When he first Bit down, he 'pear ed to keer mighty little 'bout playin', and wisht he hadn't come. He tweedle-leed'ed a little on the treble, and twoodle-oodled some on the base just foolin' and boxin'the thing's jaws for bein' in his way. And I says to a man slttin' nui to me, says I: "What sort of a fool playin' is that ?"And he says, ' 'Heisb! " But presently his hands commenced chasin' one another up and down the keys, like a par oel of rats scamperin' through a garret very swift. Parts of it was swoet, though, and re minded me of a sugar squirrel turnin' the wheel of a candy cage. "Now," I says to my neighbor, "he's show in' off. Ho thinks he's a-doin' of it, but he ain't got no idee, no plan of nothia'. If he'd play me a tune of somo kind or other I'd" But my neighbor says "Heish !" very impa tient. I was ju3t about to git up and go home, bein' tired of that foolishness, when I heard a little bird waking up away off In the woods, and call sleepy-like to his mate, and I looked 1 up and see that Buby was beginning to take some interest in his business, and I sit down again. It was the peep of day. The light came faint from the east, the breezes blowed gentle and fresh, some more birds waked up in the orchard, then some more in the trees near the bouse,and all begun singm' together. People began to stir, and the gal opened the shutters. Just then the first beam of the sun foil upon the blossoms a leetls more, and it techt the roses on tho bushes, and tho nsxt thing it was broad day ; the sun fairly blazed, the birds snug like they'd split their little throats ; all the leaves was niovin', and flash in' diamonds of dew, and the whole wide world was bright and happy as a kins. Seemed to me like there was a good break fast in every house iu the land, and not a sick child or woman anywhere. It was a fine mornm . And I says to my neighbor : "That's music, that is." But he glared at me like he'd like to cut my throat. Presently the wind turned ; it begun to thicken up, and a kind of gray mist came over things ; I got low-spirited direotly. Then a silver rain begun to fall. I could soe the drops touch the ground; some flashed up like long pearl earrings, and the rest rolled away like round rubies. It was pretty, but melan choly. Then the pearls gathered themselves into long strands and necklaces, and then they melted into thin silver streams, running between golden gravels, and then the streams joined each other at the bottom of the hill, and made a brook that flowed silent, exoept that you could kinder see the music, specially when the bushes on the banks movod as the music went along down the valley. I could smell the flowers in the meadow. But the sun didn't shine, cor the birds sing ; it was a foggy day, but not oold. The most curious thing was the little white angel-boy, like you see in pictures, that run ahead of the music brook and led it on, and on, away out of the world, where no man ever was, certain. I could sse that boy just as plain as I see you. Then the moonlight came, without any sunset, and shone on the grave yards, whore some few ghosts lifted their hands and went over the wall, and between the black, sharp -top trees splendid marble houses rose up, with fine ladies in the lit -up windows, and men that loved 'em, but oould never got a nigh 'em, who played on guitars under tho trees, and made me that miserable I could have cried, because 1 wanted to love somebody, I don't know who, better than the men with the guitars did. Then the sun went down, it got dark, the wind moaned and wept like a lost child for its dead mother, and I oould a-got up then and there and preached a better sermon than any I ever listened to. There wagn't a thing iu the worid loft to live for, not a blame thing, and yet I didn't want the music to stop one bit. It was happier to be miserable than to be happy without being miserable. I couldn't understand it. I hung my head and pullod out my handkerchief, and blowed my nose loud to keep me from cryin'. My eyes is weak anyway ; I didn't want anybody to be R-gzin' at me a-snivliu', and it's nobody's business what I do with my nose. It's mine. But some several glared at me mad as blazes. Then, all of a sudden, old Rubin changod his tune, fle ripped out and he r.ired, he tipped and he tared, he pranced and he oharged like the grand entry at a circus. 'Peared to me that all tho gas iu the house was turned ou at once, things got so bright, and I hilt up my head, ready to look any man in the faoe, and not afraicl of notbin'. It was a circus, and a brass band, and a big ball all goiu' on at the same time. He lit into them keys like a tliousiud of brick; ho gave 'em uo rest day or niRht ; ho set every liviu' joint in mo a-gom'. aud not beiu' able to stand it no longer. I jumped, sprang onto my seat and just hol lered : -Go it. Rube !" Every blamed man, woman and child in the house riz on me and shouted, 'Tut him out ! Tut him out!" "Put your great-grandmother's grizzly gray greenish cat into the middle of next month !" I says. "Tech me if you dare ! I paid my money and you jest come near me !" With that somo several polioemen run up, and I had to simmer dowu. But I oould a-fit any fool that laid hands on me, for I was bound to hear Ruby out or die. He had changed his tune again. He hop light ladies and tip-toed fine from end to end of the key-board. He played soft and low aod solemn. I heard the church bells over the hills. The candles of heaven was lit, oue by one ; I saw the stars rise. The great organ of eternity began to play from the world's end, and all the angels went to prayers. . . Then the music changed to water, full of feeling that couldn't be thought, and began to drop-drip, drop-drip, drop, clear and sweet, like tears of joy falling into a lake of glory. It was sweeter than that. It was as sweet as a sweetheart sweetened with white sugar mixt with powdered silver and seed diamonds. It was too sweet. I tell you the audience cheered. Rubin he kinder bowed, like he wanted to say, "Much obleeged, but I' rather you wouldn't interrup' me." He stopt a moment or two to ketch breath. Thou he got mad. He ran his fingers through his hair, he Bhoved up his sleeve, he opened his ooat tails a leotle further, he drug up his stool, be leaned over, and, sir, he just went for that old pianner. He elapt her faoe, he boxed her jaws, he polled her nose, he punch ed her ears, and he scratched her cheeks un til she fairly yelled. He knocked her down, and he statu pt on her shameful. She bellow ed, she bleated like a calf, she howled like a hound, she squealed like a pig, she shrieked like a rat, and then he wouldn't let her np. He ran a quarter stretch down the low grounds of the base, till he got clean in the bowels of the earth, and you heard thunder galloping after thunder, through the hollows and caves . of perdition ; and then he fox-chased his right hand with his left till he got way out of the treble into the olouds, war the notes was finer than the pints of cambric needles, and you oouldn't hear nothin' but shadders of 'em. And then he wouldn't let the old planner go. He for'ard two'd, he orost over first gentle men, he ohassade right and left, baok to your places, he all hands'd aroun', ladles to the right, promenade all, in and out, here and there, back and forth, up and down, perpetual motlon.double twisted and turned and taokled and tangled into forty-eleven thousand double bow knots. By jinks ! it was a mixtery. And then he wouldn't let the old pianner go. He feoht up his right wing, he feoht up his left wing, ho fecht up his oenter, he feeht up bis reserves. He fired by file, he fired by platoons, by company, by regiments, and by brigades. He opened his cannon seize guns down thar, Napoleons nere, twelve pounuers yonaer big guns, little guns, middle-sized guns, round shot, shells, shrapnels, grape, canister, mor tar, mines and magazines, every livin' battery and bomb a-goin' at the same- time. The house trembled, the lights danogd, the wells shuk, the floor come up, the oeilin' come down, the sky split, the ground rokt heavens and earth, creation, sweet potatoes, Moses, ninepenoes, glory, ten-penny nails, Sampson in a 'simmon-tree, Tump, Tompson la a tumbler-cart, xoodle-oodle-oodle-oodle rud-dle-uddle-uddle-uddle -raddle-addle-addle-addle riddle-iddle-iddle-iddle reedle-eedle-ee-dle-eedle-eedle p-r-r-r-rlang I Bang I long ! perland! p-r-r-r-r-r! ! Bang!!! With that bang! he lifted himself bodily in to the a'r and he come down with his knees, his ten fingers, his ten toes, his elbows, and his nose, striking every solitary key on the pianner at the same time. The thing busted and went off into seventeen hundred and fifty-seven thousand five hundred and forty two heme demi-semi-quivers, and I ksow'd no mo.
