In these days it is hard to know when to call anything really cheap ; the " bottom is knocked out" of prices altogether, as the phrase goes. The-ISFew Haven ladies have testified in a most ttnequwocal manner to the fact that our Cloaks are cheap any way, whatever else may be. But really, of all the cheap things in dry goods the cheapest we have yet seen is a line of fine French Twills that we bought last week. 7 hey are all wool colored dress goods of 5-4 width and in aesira-tle shades. Unless we are very mzich mistaken there is nothing superior to them offered anywhere in JVew Haven at less than 80c. We could get that price for them, btit can take less, and will do it. They izre for sale at . 60c. a Yard. When you come in to see them, ask also to have shown - to you the magnificent Venetian Cloths at 85c thatwe mentioned last week ; they are the ordinary $1.50 goods. Other things you ought to see are the "Bull Bison" cloths at 55c and the Bird's Kye Matelass at 60 c. These are both 5-4 all wool goods. for tailor-made dt esses we have regular lines of Cloths and Tri cots, but our genuine ScoIcL Suiting) are the most ''stylish goods for that purpose..

Some of the inhabitants of this great, glorj ions and free country ara as much excited over the political situation as if there had never been a close election before. But there have been other close elections and other States than New York in which the re sult has depended upon only a few hundred votes. " - In 1840, for instance, Maine gave Harri son only 411 plurality and Pennsylvania only 45, while in the same year Arkansas gave VanBnren but 889 plurality. In 1844 Clay carried Delaware by only 252, New Jersey by 828 an,d Tennessee by 113. The same year Polk had only 699 plurality in Louisiana, and more than this number of votes were fraudulent. In 1848 Taylor -had 533 plurality in Delaware, while Cass car- ried Alabama by 881 and Mississippi bv 615. In 1852 Pierce had only 25 plu rality in Delaware and 686 in North Carolina. In 1854 Myron Clark, the whig candidate for governor of Now York, was elected by only 309 majority. The can didate for lieutenant-governor carried the State by over S8,000 and his election was known in a couple of days after the polls closed, but it was several weeks before the election of Governor Clark was settled. In 1868 Grant had only 500 plurality in Califor nia and Seymour carried Oregon by 164. In 1872 Greeley had 908 plurality in Maryland. In 1876 Hayes carried Oregon by only 547 majority. The situation in New York this year is re markable because the margin is so small and the total vote so large. Of course a plurality of one is just as decisive as a plurality of ten thousand, "But a plurality : of ten thousand makes itself readily felt. EDITORIAL NOTES. The American people are not left long without something to interest them. The election is over, but Hon. John L. Sullivan, of Boston, is again conspicuous. And still they come. Austin Brainard, of Haddam, who was the candidate for Middle sex county last year for the position of as sistant clerk of the house of representatives, will be a candidate for the same position this year. Pork amounts to something "out West." It is estimated that during the ensuing four months the amount of money which will be disbursed for pork in the West will approxi mate 100,000,000, besides the transportation charges of the railroads, the compensation of labor employed in packing, the purchase of cooperage and many other incidental dis bursements. The British board of trade by its returns shows that in the month of October, 1884, the imports of the kingdom were twenty-one millions, eighty-five thousand dollars less than for the month of October, 1883, and that the exports for October, 1884, were three millions, six hundred and twenty-five thou sand dollars less than for the corresponding month of the preceding year. . These are the estimates for one month, and they follow a similar proof of depression of trade which has been made for months. Captain Nathan Appleton, of Boston, the American agent of the Panama Canal com pany, tells a very different story about the affairs of the company than those which have been going the rounds. De Lesseps, he says, will visit the Isthmus next spring to open the-first section of canal from Colon to Gatun, and he expects to have the work fan. ished by 1888. Two things have been accom plished during the past summer; nearly all the $24,000,000 bonds have been taken, and over one-fourth of the canal has been let out to an American dredging firm. The money thus far raised is about $140,000,000, nearly half of which has been spent. Beet sugar making in Europe is not paying as veil as it did. The $44,000,000 paid in subsidies by Germany and similar encourage ment bestowed by Austria expanded the sugar beet industry to an abnormal extent. At first the dividends of the factories were enormous, ranging in some cases from 60 to 175 per cent. , but the markets of the world became overloaded and prices dropped 50 per cent, in six months. At present a krasch," or panic, is impending in Austria; the situation is not much better in Germany; and Russia, Poland and other sugar-producing countries of Europe are unfavorably affected. As a result, the sugar-beet crop will be saialler this year, and a larger restric tion is expected in 1885, when, it is thought, the surplus of sweets will have been worked off and prostrated cane-raisers in this coun try and the West Indies will again be given a chance. New Orleans, where the great cotton expo sition is to be held, supports its claims to cosmopolitanism by its comprehensive sys tem of furnished rooms, at which, it is claimed, the average tourist can live more comfortably and economically than at hotels. Near Canal street, the great central boulevard of the city, hundreds of rooms are to be had, with tasteful furniture, abundant water sup ply and all the comforts of a home. Excel lent coffee is served in the morning, and the service is quiet and effective. These rooms rent for from one to five dollars a day during the winter season, and their occupants have a wider range of restaurants than in any other city south of New York. The price of breakfast at these places Varies from the ordi nary twenty-five cent table d'hote to the $20 repast a la carte. Game or fish are of the best, the oysters are unsurpassed, vegetables are always in season and the cooks are said to be admirable. " Mr. Hiram S. Maxim, whose name is well known in connection with a system of electric lighting which was introduced by him a few years ago, has invented a machine-gun which. has lately been exhibited in London, and which gives some remarkable results. This gun has a single barrel only, which is pro tected from undue heating by a water jacket. The cartridges are supplied to it in a contin uous canvas belt, not unlike the belt carried by sportsmen. The recoil of the gun at each discharge is utilized in bringing forward the next cartridge, forcing it into position, cock ing the hammer and pulling the trigger, so that the gun when once set going is automat ic. If its attendant were killed in action the weapon would in fact go on firing its comple ment of cartridges until the last one was ex pended. The rate of discharge can be regula ted from one a minute to the astonishing maximum of six hundred per minute. The same system of belt-feeding has been applied by Mr. Maxim to ordinary rifles fired from the shoulder. The council now in session at Baltimore is the third plenary council of .the Roman church which has been held in this country, The two former, as well as the present, were held in Baltimore, the first in 1852, the seo- nnd-in-lSoQ. The growth of the church in the United States is shown by the number of pre lates present at each of these ecclesiastical assemblies. At the first there were 6 arch bishops, 25 bishops, 1 mitred abbot, 11 superiors of religious- orders, and 12 vicars general; at the second, 7 archbishops, 39 bishops, -2 mitred abbots, 24 vicars general. 19 superiors of religious orders, and 7 rectors of seminaries; at the third, 13 archbishops, 60 bishops, and 5 visiting bishops from Canada, 1 from northern Japan, 7 . abbots, prefect apostolic, 11 monsignon, 18 vicars general, 23 superiors of religious orders, 12 rectors of seminaries, and 90 theologians. Many of the clergy without superior ecclesi astical rank are also present. The council's deliberations are held in private, but the public is admitted to the solemn sessions on Sunday and Thursday mornings, and to the evening services on each day of the week ex cept Thursdays and Saturdays. The council will continue in session three weeeks, dos ing on Sunday, Nov. 20. The general election for the imperial par liament which has just taken place in Ger many was a complicated affair. So far as its results are known they show a great increase in the strength of the Socialists and a propor tionate falling off in that of the Liberals. These general elections for the Reichstag are held every three years by universal suffrage, and the number of registered electors in the empire is about ten millions. At the last elections, in 1881,'barely half of this total went to the polls; but in Berlin the Progress ists, or Eadical wing of the Liberal party, polled a large vote and carried all the six seats. Since then the Progressists have become merged with the Secessionists from the old National Liberal faction into a new party calling themselves Liberalists. In the capital only one of their candidates, Dr. Ludwig Lowe, has been elected. One of the seats has gone to a Socialist, and the other four will have to be contested again at a sec ond ballot, the Liberal candidate being op posed in every case by a Conservative and a Socialist. It is the custom in continental elections for the candidate who has polled the smallest vote to retire before the second ballot, hinting or openly declaring to his snpporters that he would like them to vote for one or other of his competitors. By virtue of this arrangement it is possible that an al liance between Conservatives and Socialists may oust the Liberals from the four seats which remain open in Berlin. SWALLOWS.

There was a moment's silence, broken by the Teutonic declaration: "But I speak French, also. Do von?"

"Yes, we were there, but it was erupting fearful that day, throwing up lava and smoke and stuff, and they concluded it would not be safe to go up to the top.

A Spectacular Play In Parle luter estlne, Wondcrlul, and Gorgeo-a Performances A Triumph of Inge ntuty and Splendor. Paris, Oct. 3. To the Editor of the Journal and Cocbier. I do not remember having seen a descrip tion of a first-class Parisian spectacular play for a good while, and perhaps none at a) that was shorn of ihe technical fulminations of our infallible critics. Having had an op portunity to see the perfection of this line of amusement in Paris it has occurred to me to tell, in the homely language that ad dresses itself to the masses of readers, what it was that I saw. I am not familiar with the best work of the Kiralfy Brothers, but I am sure that it is, in the nature of things, impossible for them to more than equal this French "spectacular." I read on the bill-board that "Poule aux oeufs d'or" was having a long run at the Theater du Chatelet. I did not stop to learn what the title meant, or get any synopsis of the piece in English. "Oeufs" meant eggs I knew that, and I would trust to my eyes to interpret the rest. Of course, in the first place, I could not really get the run of the slander thread of fairy plot, and of course in the second place, I can only single oat a few of the more striking features of the perfor mance now from the chaotic throng of mem ories which it has left with me. If I inter pret amiss, the critics may indulge in superior smiles without seriously interfering. trust, with the interest of those common place readers who have a curiosity to know what they would have seen had they gone to the Chatelet lust as 1, a helpless stranger. ma. . - . - - The bills further announced that there were three acts, a prologue, a grand diver- tisement, two apotheoses, and sa tableaux. The Theater du Chatelet is the home of French spectacular drama.lt is altogether the largest theater in Paris, seating between 3,000 ana 6,ow persons--estimates aifier. There are only four galleries, but they are very ca pacious, and the lower one has a liberal border-balcony in the front of it. As seeing is more than hearing, the galleries have been constructed so that every seat commands a good view of the stage, and there are no pri vate boxes. The stage is almost if not quite as vast as the theater itself. Inside and out the electric light is used, although gas is em ployed to some extent also. Although the piece had been running for several weeks, the great theater was packed from top to bottom. The first scene or two were tame, introducing four or five jolly peasant boys to the audience. Then came the scene representing a monster black hen letting in a basket, with other baskets of eggs around her one for each of the peasants evidently. These eggs proved to be regu lar bonanzas, for they had but to be thrown upon the floor, and the greatest miracles would take ulace. The peasant youths found the eggs and began experimenting. One threw an egg to the floor, and suddenly his entire suit of clothes was gone, and he was gloriously arrayed as a prince. At the same instant a band of singing fairies appeared to escort him from the stage. Another tried his luck. The transformation was equally com plete, and a train of Indian coolies appeared with a gorgeous sedan ehair, m which he was borne away. A third was no less successful, and rode from the stagoon an elephant's back amidst an oriental pageant. Each egg was loaded with a mild torpedo, so that its destruction was attended hy a slight explosion. By careful watching I was able to discover that the peasant clothes were removed and pulled down, through the Hoar, even long stockings being thus re moved bat jl was all accomplished in about the time consumed hy an ordinary wink, and I could not detect the . opening of the floor. The same act contained some pretty music, especially after the old hen got off her nest and began stretching herself. T-hen the hen marched OS from xne stage, followed by a long pro-session of chicks, (very small boys) just emerging from gilded eggs. The barn-yara scenery now tolded itself out from sight.displaying the full stage mag nificently set as a court scene, with peacock throne and all the gorgeous paraphernalia of Indian royality. All the lights in the audi torium were turned off, and the whole stage was made intolerably brilliant by means of electric lights. Six powerful focus lamps from the footlight row, and scores of hidden electric headlights above and on all sides of the stage concentrated their dazzling illumin ation upon the scene. The prince and prin cess took their seats, magnificently robed and escorted by an immense retinue of royal ladies and noblemen in full dress. Bands of music lent melody to the occasion, and scores of superbly dressed supernumeraries flanked the stage on all sides. 1 hen tne transformed peasants came in successfully with their splendid retinues and sued in song for the hand of the princess as I took it. The lat- ter was veiy susceptible and wanted to ac- :ept all, but the tussy old prince to whom she was tied seriously disapproved the pro ceedings. Her goneness, his ecoentricity, and the overtures of the rival lovers were taken advantage of for the introduction of some very comical though highly impos sible situations. But the climax of the scene was the en trance of a long procession of animals, whveh were successively introduced in song by the leader. There were representatives of almost every prominent zoological branch that is found in a well-equipped menagerie. There were choruses in whieh all these animals joined, at the same time dancing in their various places. There were white polaT bears, crocodiles, kangaroos, long-tailed blackbirds, tigers, lions, deers, whales, sharks, swans, doves, large fish, frogs, lizards, etc., ad infinitum. The movement of the various jaws, beaks, snouts, and prooocises in the choral parts was excruciatingly tunny. At length the curtain tell, and the vast aggregation of glitter and glamor disap peared. A moment later and the curtain rose, showing a palatial apartment. One of the transformed peasants entered and seated himself on one handsome sofa at one side of the stage. No. 2 entered, and called for a seat as he threw down an egg, ad the sofa lipped out from JNo. 1 to glide over behind him. No. 1 then threw down an egg, and the sofa divided, half remaining where it was and half coming to him. No. 3 entered, threw dawn an egg, and then seated him self on the two halves of the sofa, which had at once gravitated to the middle and united behind him. Then arose an absurd emulation and controversy among the three, simply as an excuse to introduce some marvelous scenic changes. One threw down an egg, and a dozen sections of the room walls revolved instantaneously, com pletely changing the appearance of things. Another was dissatisfied, tossed down his egg, and an equally radical change took place. The third wanted something still different and accomplished a similar remarkable hange. In quick succession boudoirs, illu minated palaces, woodland scenes and ele gant salons followed, illustrating the perfec tion to which stage machinery may be car ried. Only once did a single small section delay in the matter of revolving, and then but for minute. inalty each appeared to be satis fied, and then in came the princess, having eluded her old fogy companion. More egg- breaking followed by way of competition for the fair one's hand, and more strange things occurred, of which I cannot remember the half now. Once a mass ot golden balls en tered by one door, wandered across the stage and passed out at another door, escaping from the actors who had at once pursued it. Then the princess tried her hand at the egg experiment and instantly all her finery van ished. She was now merely a frowsy cham bermaid with a duster at her waist, and the aforesaid old fogy life-partner scarcely recog nized her when he appeared on the scene. The act closed with a grand transforma tion, again showing an illimitable stage set with tropic glories of architecture and vege tation. In the extreme background was a grand double staircase, down which there presently came a rush of green and red tights and costumes ot every imaginable variety. The males were in red with bat-like wings and curious headgear. The green was the female color. - Faster and faster came the double procession, until the lines of color that wound around and around the stage were fairly flying. There were two hundred of these, who were followed by one hundred of the tiniest children in uniforms of the same colors, half boys and half girls, and then fif ty dan -tenses. The stage was now massed with people in uniforms which literally daz zled tne eyes under tne glare ot those power ful electric and calcium lights. The columns continued still to describe the most beautiful manoeuvres to the accompaniment of exceed ingly rapid music, some circles whirling in reversed uirecbiura, ana yec an tne evolu tiona being distinct and perfect. It must have taken weeks of the most arduous prao- wiK? w u .mo complicated diver- tisement. - The curtain fell to the burning of red lights, the booming of cannons and the dis charge of pyrotechnics. Had the play ended right here I should have thought that I had seen enough glamor for one evening or one century, m fact; but I had not begun to see the wonders which have been aggregated (without much coherence) into this one "spectacle." The second act introduced peasant girl who came in where a basket of these wonderful eggs had been left. She tried one of them and a lovely white shoe floated down to her. Another and the shoe had replaced the old one on her foot, while a white silk stocking was where a soiled brown bne had been. A third egg, after a song or two, and the remaining limb was similarly equipped. Of course these " changes . must have been effected through the floor some how, but her feet were visible all the time and it was done in a twinkling. Another folding of scenes out of sight and the full stage appeared. Myriads of tiny children came out equipped with miniature saws, wheelbarrows, planes, hods, hatchets and boards upon their shoulders. A palace be gan to come up out of the floor at the rear of the stage with scaffolding in front ot it. As it slowly ascended the workmen mounted va rious parts of the scaffolding and ascended with it. The echoes of the hammer and saw were heard, while horses with drays of mate rial were led. up to the building that was in process of construction. It was an animated scene. Some of the little ones were engaged in occupations that could hardly be consul ered accessory to the building of the palace, such as blacksmithing and gardening. - At length the pile had reached the top of the stage-loft, and the scaffolding dropped away from it through the floor, ihe basement un der that stage must have been forty or fifty feet deep. Then all the children rose, their day's work done, gathered up the imple ments of their industry and were gone. Each one had the special thing - which he was to carry off, so that in a moment, as it were, the crowded stage was cleared of everything ex cept a single enormous (stuffed) beam. The smallest child of all returned presently and carried off that beam amid great applause and good-natured laughter. Night came on. Presently sparks appeared from the palace, accompanied by smoke and then bv flames. Two little boys came walk ing along, saw the fire, threw up their hands and rushed away for help. In a moment a miniature fire brigade appeared with hand engines, hoso carts, ladders, trumpets, etc. The youngsters wore helmets and uniforms and went to work in earnest. A little later the militia arrived to guard the prop erty and make arrests, as they did in one or two cases where treacherous helpers were carrying off valuables. Then came two real fire engines, drawn by horses that came in upon the stage at full gallop. The vastness of the stage was apparent from the diminutive appearance of these engines by contrast. The twinkling of the lanterns, the leaping of the flames and the throbbing of the engines, which were really "fired up," all tended to' make the scene startling ly realistic. The conflagration scene gave way to a milling scene, and this to a boating scene, I believe. I could not traco the sequence of things at all and presume there was none. The act was closed by a grand ballet and apotheosis that eclipsed anything in either the prologue or the previous act. The reg ular body of dancers numbered about fifty, led by the best talent of the French capi tal; while the three hundred other partici pants were ranged in phalanxes on the sides and at the back ot the stage. The -costumes were so varied and fanciful as to de fy description. How anyone ever had the ingenuity to devise so many novel and pretty combinations exceeds my comprehension. The delicacy of the color blendings was es pecially noticeable. There were pinks and violets, and buffs and lavenders, and purples and crimsons, and creams and sea-greens and oranges all mingled in exquisite confusion. The costumes displayed m me wnoie piece could not have been under fifteen hundred in number, and I do not believe that suh lav- lshness would be justihed m any city in the world except theatre-going Paris. But I started to give some faint impression ; of this divertisement. It seemed to repre sent a carnival of illuminators. Each per son carried some sort of lamp or lantern. There were some bands that carried Japanese lanterns, others that bore lighted torches aloft, others with many armed candelabra, and others with glittering baubles at the tops of long gilt staffs. A phalanx of twen ty damsels had immense brass helmets on their heads and shields in front, the glitter of which was scarcely endurable as their wearers danced down toijthe footlights. Of wings, fancy hats, flags and unique decora tions there was no end. The .music was catchy and the evolutions of the" -dancers were verily the poetry of motion. A stage occupied by three hundred and fifty people, all posing or aancing in bewildering but sys tematic confusion, is a Terpsichorean exhibi tion that is not often seen except in Paris. The apotheosis at the close was a fitting nnaie to sue act. xne cloud scenery in the extreme background rolled away, disclosing a magnincent example oi aerial suspension. The floating fair ones were in the midst of a gigantic star ot J&dispn incandescent nets, made up of stars of the same, that were also made ot stars. When the curtain went down it was hard at first to see the gas lets by which the orches tra was playing, so superior had been the electrical display. Upon the rising of the curtain in the third " act, more comedy followed. Glorified peasant number one came in, sang awhile, and then seated himself in a canopied alcove. No, 2 entered, and exploded an egg. The pavilion rose eight or ten feet, disclosing a chair in a Btory below in which No. 2 ensconced him self. No. 3 now loomed up, exploded an egg, and seated himself in the next story be low, whieh had generously come up to the level. The susceptible princess now entered, discovered . No. 3 and began spooning with him, having seated herself in a chair beside him. Princess drops hand kerchief and No. 3 stoops' to pick it up. In the meanwhile chair glides up to second story, princess resumes her love making with No. 2, without noticing the difference for a moment, and No. 3 tries to find someone up on whom to bestow the handkerchief. Sur prises all around. Chair jumps up to third story when the interested parties are look ing away from each other, and more sur prises follow. No. 1 is about to bestow his first kiss, when princess disappears, etc. , etc. Suffice it to pass over the other novelties of the act, and mention the grand carnival of musical instruments with which it ended. There was another full stage flooded with electrical illuminations. The scenery rep resented the porticoes of a palace construct ed entirely of musical instruments. The great staircase consisted of piano keyboards. In came the instruments, huge drums from which the wearer's head protruded, bass viols, immense silver horns with the face looking out of a window, slender flutes, guitars, cymbals, bagpipes, accor deons, hand-organs, etc.. Fifty boys with tiny drums came run ning in, and seated tnemseives on tne Key board steps. Then fifty girls with bright metal saucers around their waists, represent ative of table bells. Then fifty more girls with dresses like church bells and the clappers on their shoulders. Then fifty more with tambourine hats and dress ornaments. Then an immense animated harp, the supports of which were two fair maidens, whose dresses were formed by the gilt scroll-work of the harp, and so on. There were melodious little snatches of orchestral and vocal music attending the ad vent of each class of instruments, and finally a grand pandemonium of singing, dancing, bell ringing, tambourine rapping, &c, as the curtain went down. The final apotheosis was preceded by an exercise intended at once to give an idea of the uses to whieh a stage floor may be put and to give time for the preparation of the last tableau. Elves and satyrs in green tights appeared and disappeared m every possible way. I have seen such exhibitions before, but usually the athletes have popped ud throngh only three or four places in the r ? i- -i :i 1 ii noor anu aisappearcu a oiuiuutijr buiiui number of places. Here there seemed to be not one inch of floor that was not made to swallow a performer or pop one high into the air. The performers dived out of sight, rolled out of sight, doubled up and-went head foremost through circular openings scarcely a foot in diameter, and even somersaulted out of sight. Then they practiced on the walls. They fastened themselves in some mysterious way, and re volved clear around the. loom close to the ceiling, without visible attachment to the wall. They glided up the walla feet fore most (sure death In case of accident); and then the nanel wonld rprnluA taking them out of sight. There were adjustable panels everywhere, some revolving from right to left, some from left to right, some up, some down, and some diagonally. The perform ers would disappear sometimes in a sea of flame. Then, by means of invisible wires, the elves would leap almost to the very top of the proscenium arch, then back again, describing all manner of extraordinary fig- nres. - After these gyrations the scenery folded away, disclosing the final tableau, the "para- dise of flowers." Of course there were the conventional opening rosebuds, parting clouds, gliding cars and whirling windmills, all animated by smiling faces or posing chil dren with garlands and- fountains, innumera ble. Such are my memories of a single Parisian spectacular play. If it was not a case of multum in parvo, then let some American dramatist come forward and construct a more comprehensive spectacle. Emtle. Catarrh Is undoubtedly caused by impure blood. Hence a medicine which purines the blood removes the cause of the disease and oppns the way for a thorough cure. This is exactly what Hood's Sarsaparllla does, and it makes the cure complete by giving the system health and strength and enabling it to throw off the depressing effects of the disease. Catarrh Is permanently cured by Hood's Sarsaporilla. Mr. A. Ball, Syracuse N. says: "Hood's Sarsapa rllla has helped me more for catarrh and impure blood than anything I ever used.
