TBB ELECTOKAL COUNT'- " Unfortunately the dreary debate now going on in Congress oyer the electoral count is not likely to result in any satisfactory solution of the problem. The rule which will doubtless be adopted, and which will be followed in the counting of the votes which have elected General Garfield, will not be accepted by thS Republicans, and as soon as they regain con trol of the lower branch of Congress they will reopen the question, and then there will be another dreary debate. There is no necessity for such work as this, as there ia none for half tbe contests that take place in Congress. What both parties ought to be seeking is simply the most strict ly equitable and honest ascertainment of the vote of every State in future, elections, and security that the legal electoral votes shall, and that the illegal votes shall not, be count ed. This, as fihe Boston' Advertiser truthful ly remarks, cannot be had by leaving to the Vice President the privilege of determining whether or not -the returns transmitted to him are genuine and accurately represent the vote of the people of the several States, or which, if either, of two rival certificates is truthful in that regard. It oannot be had by entrusting the same power to the two houses acting in concurrence. f Still less by authori zing either house to put a veto upon the counting of a particular certificate, and so disfranchise the State. There may be, however, and have been, disputes about the result in some States the manner in which these disputes are decided may affect the gen eral result, and decided they must be The problem, therefore, is to create or dis cover a tribunal in which there shall be gen eral confidence, to which all such disputes may be referred as they arise, whose decision shall be final, so that the functions of both the Vice President and Congress, either or both branches, may become purely ministe rial, as the framers of the Constitution, who never anticipated contests over electoral votes, clearly intended them to be. The Advertiser proposes what seems to be a simple and adequate solution of the diffi culty. This is an amendment of the Consti tution giving to Congress the right to pass laws directing inquiry into cases of contested electoral votes by the highest court of each State, or by the district courts of the United States, and making the decision when ren dered binding ' upon Congress. Saye the Advertiser: "If such an amendment was adopted and a law passed in accordance with it, a contest over the result of the election would be impossible. In general the elec toral votes cast by persons certified by the Governor to have been chosen would be ac cepted without question. All contests based upon illegal voting, intimidation, false count ing, or the ineligibility of electors must have been raised before the time for counting ar rived, they could be tried only before the designated tribunal, the decision of which would be final, and no matter not referred to such tribunal, affecting the right or the vote of any elector, could be brought to the cog nizance of the Vice President or of Con gress."- - Some such mode of depriving Congress of all right to act judicially upon any question concerning the electoral votes ought to be adopted. Until it is we shall be exposed to dangers like those of 1876. EDITORIAL K0TES. It is not probable that "honest" John Kel ly feels any better than he did day before yesterday, but he knows more. By the death of ex -Lieutenant Governor Winchester, New Haven suffers a great loss. He was public spirited and generous and has done much for this city in many ways. Such men can ill be spared by a community. Secretary Schurz is preparing a letter ad dressed to Governor Long of Massachusetts, in which he will review at length the whole proceedings in the Ponca case, with the view of vindicating his course in the matter, which was so severely criticised by the Governor. The letter will be interesting reading. This excellent standing ticket for the South is proposed by the Conyers (Georgia) Weekly : For President Cotton. For Vice President Corn. Cabinet Officers Secretary of the Treasury, Hoc : Secretary of State, Horse : Secretary of Interior, Cow ; Secretary of War, Sheep ; Postmaster-General, Mills, Gins, Factories, Fac tories and Factories. The motor upon which John W. Keely has spent so much time and money since 1871 is once more attracting some attention. It is now said that an entirely new engine for the utilization of the motor is being constructed, and there will be a public exhibition of its ac tion at an early date. The friends of the en terprise says that it has already been tested as a projectile in gunnery, in ascertain ing the strength of metals, and as a press, and has given wonderful results, and that the successful application of the power as a motor is only a question of time. With in the past few years expert scientists hare examined the motor and condemned it. Stock holders of the company met in secret session the other day and all they will publish is a resolution declaring their undoubted . faith and belief in Mr. Keely's invention ; that he will, "at an early date," utilize it, and that he will, "at an early day," have it "under his entire control." This will hardly send the stock up much. The sixteen Nihilist prisoners who were sen tenced in St. Petersburg on the 10th of No vember constituted a part of the terrible Ex ecutive Committee. Of the sixteen prisoners, two were gentlemen, two artisans, two peasants, one son of a privy councillor, one merchant, one servant, one doctor, one son of a priest, one, Sofia Ivanoff, "the rath er handsome daughter of a major," one, Gri aznovai, "a very dark, pinched, and unlovely peasant woman," and Figner, a gentlewo man. Five of the men were sentenced to loss of all civil rights and to be hanged ; the other eleven, including the women, to loss of all civil status and penal servitude from IS years to life. But the sentences of the gen tlewoman and the peasant woman were com muted from 15 years penal servitude to exile to Siberia, while Sofia Ivanoff instead of 15 years penal servitude has four years hard la bor in a factory. It is thought that this will end active Nihilism. An indication of the possibilities of the telephone is furnished by the formation, of a company in New York which has for one of its objects to connect New York city with various other cities and towns. The articles recite that one line from the city will be con tinued to convenient points on the Hudson river, and thence across the river to conven ient points on fhe New Jersey shore ; that another will be run by way of Yonkers, Poughkeepsie, Hudson, Albany and interme diate places to Troy, Saratoga, Whitehall and Plattsburg, and thence to the Canadian bor der ; that a line connecting with this win run through Schenectady, Utica, Fyracuse, Oswe go, Rochester and Buffalo to the' Canadian border; that another line from 'New York will go by way of Goshen, Port Jervis, and coming to Rochester and Buffalo, and thence to one or - more convenient points on the Pennsylvania State line ; anoth er irom JNew iork by a convenient route or convenient routes to one or more points on the Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont State lines ; another from New York by other convenient routes to Kingston. Newburg, Utica, Syracuse, Oswego, Auburn Rochester, Elroira, Lockport, Buffalo and Ni agara Falls ; and that still other lines shall run from New York to Brooklyn, various towns on Long Island, and to and throughout Rich mond county. Great improvements have lately been made in transmitting over loDg distances, and the company expects no great dimculty in sending messages over its long est line. The collapse of houses on one of the Paris boulevards the other day caused a panic, but the reports presented by engineers who have been through the underground passages served to allay anxiety. Money is to be spent in alterations which will p revent a recurrence of the catastrophe in any other part of the city. For several centuries the stone used in building most of the Paris houses was taken from quarries extending from the village of Chatillon to the Seine. These extractions, earned on without method, led to severe ac cidents about a hundred years ago, and ii 177C a royal decree ordered that plans should be prepared of these underground galleries, and that the quarries and catacombs should be placed under the control of a special body of engineers. This service, which has been continued ever since, is now attached to the Prefecture of the Seine and comprises a first class engineer of mines, an ordinary engineer and nine inspectors of mines, the money re quired being provided from year to year by the Municipal Council. The principal part of their work lies on the left bank of the Seine, where a large proportion of the houses are built over galleries having an average depth of from fifty to seventy feet, the quar ries underneath four of the principal arron dissements on that side of the river having a total area of over eight million feet. The soil on the right bank of the Seine it not honeycombed to anything like the same ex tent, the group of underground galleries not exceeding 422,000 square yards, and there is no passage under the Seine connecting the two networks of galleries. Altogether, the underground passages formed from the quar ries of the city cover an area of about 3,700, 000 yards and the length of galleries con structed at the present time is over thirty miles, nearly as much more remaining to be completed. The celebrated catacombs, the walls of which are formed of human skulls, are beneath the Montsouris Gardens and cover an area of 74,000 feet. FOR THAWING OtTT WATER. PIPES.

Royal Victoria Hotel, Nassau, N. P. December To the Editor of the Joubvax. and Coubzeb : This beautiful place has been much written about, and your readers will, many of them, remember the interesting letters of our towns man, Hon. Charles Ives, who has visited Nassau the last two winters. We arrived here a week ago to-day, Thanksgiving day, on the steamer City of Austin, after an un usually rough voyage. Capt. Stevens said he didn't have a "dry deck" three hours be tween New York and Nassau. When we reached the island the surf was too heavy to cross the bar, and we lay "off and on" out side from midnight until 1 p. m. Then we came up in fine style. I suppose the scene is about the same to the passengers of every steamer. Certainly it is one never to be for gotten by one coming here for the first time. What astonishes one most is the apparently unlimited number of colored people waiting on the wharf, of all sizes, shades and condi tions, and the perfect wilderness of straw hats. Everybody here wears a straw hat, and, among the colored people, the ladies wear the same kind as the gentlemen. There was not depth of water enough for our steamer to reach the wharf, and it was an amusing sight to see the colored boys in the water shouting f!hiick us a dime, boss." and tnen to see them in the perfectly clear water catching the coins before they half way reached the bot tom. The passengers tired of this before the boys did. The proprietor and staff of the "Royal Victoria" came on the steamer from New York with us ; and as laborers had for weeks been giving the hotel a thorough over hauling and cleaning, it was all ready when we arrived, and the first meal in it this season was served that evening. Mr. S. S. Morton, of the Morton House, Greenwich, is the pro prietor, and Mr. T. D. Winchester, of New York, manager. There are only a few guests as yet, the "height" of the season not being reached until February. During that and the succeeding month in thisyear, 1880, the hotel was over full, and some guests were obliged to room in private houses. The hotel a very fine . building, magnificently situated, and it must be a very lively place when crowded with guests. At present, the boys, girls, men and women who crowd around the outer door, with oranges, shells, suger cane, shell-work, lace, turkeys, hens, eggs and almost everything to sell, find but a limited demand among the fifteen or twenty guests. Consequently, as most of them have seen no money since the hotel closed last spring, and are very anxious to get some, ex cellent bargains can be made. These mer chants invariably ask more than they expect. For instance, a lot of shells for which $2.25 was the price were sold tor 80 cents anotner lot for 50 cents brought 20 cents, and other thingsin proportion. Nothing more can De said or nassau man has been written before, but it is certain its attractions cannot be too highly spoken of, especially the temperature of the place. The average of the thermometer last winter was 7 . and during tne week since our arrival it has scarcely varied more than two or three rees from that. One can sit out in tne air at any time without catching cold, except when the wind is southerly, and then in the evening there is a heavy dew. One sheet is plenty of covering any night, and sometimes that is too heavy. Last Monday some of us went over to Hog Island and took a bath in the Atlantic Ocean, and l never iouna tne water more delightful Imagine a bath down at Savin Rock or East Haven shore Novem ber 29th! There is a great yield of fruit this year. Oranges and bananas are ripening and retail at one cent apiece. Two thousand barrels of oranges will be shipped by the steamer day after to-morrow, and a large number of bunches of bananas. There is a species of the orange tribe grown here called grape fruit, of which many of the natives are very fond, but which I do not find so palatable, as it has a very bitter rind. The colored peo ple here are a very peculiar class, and the ma jority of them are agreed in one thing, . e., not to do any more work than they have to. I never saw so many to the square foot (of ground) as can be seen on Bay street any day (except Sunday), especially in the morning, about the market, and it is evident very soon that this must be a very poor place to start the boot and shoe traAa Ttf w;t Sunday, and then you will see that they all have shoes, which some of them also wear Monday, but by that time thev start corns, and so Tuesday morning finds all the darkies just as they came into the world, so far as their feet are concerned. Careful observation convinced me that th average size worn by an able-bodied man or woman is about No. 12. As to education. I think thnv n : ferior to the colored Deonle States. The children are niinnwu1 tn attA school, but I don't know when, for they are about as thick at one hour of tha rtrnr aa an other. This is the queerest spot for money I ever saw. Some years ago when the Mexican sil ver dollar was worth 100 cents it was made a legal tender here for this amount Now.when that same dollar is worth 82 to 85 cents in the States, it still goes for 100 here. A peti tion to the Queen is being circulated and pretty generally signed asking to have that law repealed. Meantime the heat mnna here is the American greenback or national bank note, which commands a premium of 10 per cent. I heard a merchant to-day of fer 10 per cent, premium for a f (0 draft on New York, and it was refused. American 50 and 25 cent pieces- pass better than any other Silver, and it isn't bad to have a stock of onr old-fashioned copper cents, which pass here for a "penny" or two cents. The greatest curiosity here, to me. is Una Island, a long narrow strip, half a mile out side the main land, and which forms a nat ural breakwater, making this an unusually safe harbor, when a vessel gets in, but the narrow entrance and shallow water make en trance for a large vessel difficult. The island is covered with shrubbery and some palm trees, and on the inner shore with many wrecks, which have been floated there. The ocean side of the island is one of the finest beaches to be found anywhere. Speaking of wrecus, it is said many of the inhabitants are actually wretched because there has not been a wreck for five months, and when, two or three days ago, a schooner arrived with in telligence that a schooner loaded with iron, from New York for Galveston, had been, wrecked about 120 miles from here, hope took the place of despair, and now further news is eagerly awaited. This used to be a large and profitable business, but the increase of lighthouses has lessened it. A pretty hard story is told, that when a former governor who had been very active in getting a lighthouse established on the island 25 or 30 miles from here was about to give way to his successor. at a public meeting expressing his interest in tne prosperity of tne Bahamas, and promis ing if ever opportunity offered to do any thing he could with the home government in England for tneir help, the people cried as one man, "Take away the lighthouse on Hog Island. " j There are a good many churches, or chap els as they call them here, and all seem to be well attended, the colored- people of course being the majority of the membership. And how they do sing ! Sitting in my room I hear the hearty singing of the choir "practising" in the colored Baptist chapel, scarcely 150 feet distant. I led a "service of song" there last evening, and have an appointment for a similar service in the Methodist chapel to morrow evening, "liospel Hymns No. 3" is new here and they seem to enjoy the Bongs, and one not in No. 3, entitled ' 'Deliverance Will Come." Much more might be written concerning this wonderful place, but I fear my letter is already too long. It is certainly just the place for over-woried, tired-out people wno are able to endure the ocean trip, and who are willing to come to a place with which com munication can only be had once a fortnight. The hotel is fine, the scenery varied, and the air such as the poet might have had in mind when he wrote : ''No chilling wind, nor poisonous breath. Can reach that peacefushore." The Voyage of the Victoria. Chief Officer James Neish and Purser Burnside gave to a World reporter the following account of the twenty-five days' voyage of the Victoria: "We passed Gravesend from London on the 14th. Besides on passengers we hod on board Blue Gown and two breeding mares. It was at first proposed to build a box stall on deck for the horse, but it was finally decided to put it down on No. 3 deck, where comfortable quar ters were fitted up. The seas we encountered in the Channel would certainly have swept a deck-stall away. Westerly winds with very heavy squalls of nights met us until Thanks giving day. On some of the days we made no more than one hundred miles, but we lost nothing, and all were well on board. About nine o'clock on the night of the 25th, when the weather had moderated a little, the chief officer, who was on the bridge, noticed that the ship did not keep the course and sharply reprimanded the man at the wheel. It was soon discovered that the trouble was with the rudder, and a lantern lowered over the stern showed that the rud der had parted on the water line about a foot below the spur. The sheet-iron plates had been torn and the lower half of the rudder resting on the lower pivot was in position, but beyond control. We set the fore and aft sails and managed to keep on our course. Backing the ship wouldjprobablyhave broken our propeller. Our last observation, taken at noon on that day. put us in lat. 44 56' north, long. 45 20' west, about fifteen hun dred miles from this port. We set to work to rig a drag to give us some control of the steamer and got it overboard on the morn ing of the 27th, but it did not seem to work. We played out more hawser and then brought the drag up close to the vessel, and by shift ing the lines to it from one quarter to anoth er did get some result. About six o'clock on the evening of the 28th, after we had pot tered for two days with the drag, we sighted the Volmer and signalled her. The mate of the Volmer came on board and Captain Mur ray went back with him," the two vessels be ing half a mile apart, with only a small job ble of a sea on. We had a 13-inch and a 15 inch hawser, and the Volmer a chain cable, and we made the vessels fast about six hundred feet apart. We parted the cable about 3:40 a. m., and had to get them on board again. We made them fast to the port quarter, and then we started out. We went ahead because we only wanted a drag to keep us on our course. They steered, and if we went 'off' the controlling vessel forced us into the course again. We steamed up, but the Volmer only steamed enough to pre vent her from becoming too much of a dead weight. We had a very good run after that. We were lucky in freeing the Volmer, for we did not see another craft of any kind until we arrived off Sandy Hook. The weather continued to be of the worst sort, snow squalls coming up on several occasions and the blows being very heavy at night especially. One of our cables parted on the 1st and delayed us six hours. The passengers were not in the least alarmed. Three children were born in the steerage and all are well, thank you. Blue Gown died of exhaustion early on the morning of the 25th. He cot to be very fractious, and piungea ana reared when any one went into his Btall. The motion of the snip increased nis irritation and he fairly worried himBelf to death. There were two men in charge of him, and Hewitt, a i. . wlin VtnA hMn with the horse for LiJO iwiu, several years, sat down and had a good cry who he found that the racer was dead.- The sailors rigged up a tackle and lifted the body out of the hold and over the bulwarks and let it drop into the sea. Both the mares are all right, though one of them slipped a foal a leW Utl V I UMU I'lUU .vnu , foal of course died. The Consolidated railroad is cutting ice at Windsor, and it is fine, clear, and was ten inches thick Wednesday. A drunken man fell asleep on the Valley railroad track, in Middletown, Wednesday afternoon. The 4:48 train south was nearly upon him when a young lady, Miss Nellie Goodrich, daughter of Edward Goodrich.dis covered his critical situation and with great effort pulled him from the track. The annual meeting of the trustees of the State Reform school was held Wednesday at the institution in Meriden. President John lu Houston presided. Their report to the Legislature says the school was never in a more satisfactory condition in every depart ment than at present, and they suggest to the Legislature the propriety of making a liberal appropriation for further improv raits that are needed, and that will add to thewexternal appearance of the institution.
