Saturday, IVovemtoer 15, 18S4. THE FBACB IN VIRGINIA. There has been a good deal of wild talk by hot Democrats about Bepublican frauds In New York, but none have .been discovered yet, and none will be. It might bo well for honest patriots wboare so afraid of fraud to turn their attention to some of the perform ances of the Democrats in the southern States, notably in Virginia. Hon. J. S. Clarkson of the Iowa State Regis ter, who was in Virginia during the progress of the election, says the Democrats have stolen Virginia by a series of frauds hitherto un known outside the gulf States. Under the State law the county judges appoint the judges of election, three for each precinct. In the strong Bepublican counties of Charlotte and Halifax, the county judges elected by the re adjuster legislature two years ago went with the Democrats and appointed two Democrat ic judges and one Bepublican for each pre emct. Under the law, each political party Has to be given representation in each election .board. But the Democratic county judges throughout the State invariably evad ed this law by always appointing as the Be publican member either a negro who could neither read nor write or else some hybrid Bepublican who could - be bought. In this way partisan election boards were thrust upon ' the Bepubl lican counties of Charlotte, Halif j and others. With these judges and by the device of "sleeping" ballot boxes in some precis jts and tissue ballots in others, and by desy&ig United States supervisors apcesa to tha poll iag roorng either tlnring tbeelejetfcra, or 1 wr ing the coqiit afterwards, Halifax with 800 Bepublican majority was: carried by 500 for the Democrats, and Chariot ta with 600 Be publican majority was carried by nearly 500 for the- Democrats. The' leepingjAllbt box was one prepared peforehanc exactly like the one used during ejection day, and ballots put in it in such quantities as Demo crats desired. " This was kept concealed in a valise in the polling-room and at night at the closing of polls was substituted for the bal lot box used during the election and the lat ter destroyed, Xn these and other ' counties the votes were reeeivfld through windows ' so high that voters couldn't see the ballot box. By these bold and successful devices of 'deeping" ballot-boxes in most of the pre cincts of these two counties and tissue bal lots in the others, Democrats gained oyer 2,800 votes, over one-half the so-called ; or manufactured majority in the State that they now claim.1 i In many of the counties negroes were boldly intimidated and kept away from the polls by thousands. Another method suc cessfully employed was to- delay the voters by many questions and so prevent many ne groes from voting at all. In the city of Bich mond in all the wards 'where there are many negroes this plan was adopted and many Re publicans cheated auL, of their votes. In Jackson waM it -was sdNsaccessf ally employ ed that when the" polls elosed74 colored men were in line with ballots in their hands ready to vote and others were disfranchised, They have all made affidavits to this effect, and the affidavits are in the hands of United 8tates Attorney Waddell. By this method of delay over 5,000 colored men throughout the State were deprived of their vetes. Notwithstanding all this work the State went Bepublican, and the Democrats had to "fix things" after the election. Perhaps after the Democrats get through talking about "Re publican fraud in New York they would do well to pay a little attention to the case of Virginia.' j EDITORIAL NOTES. It is now charged that the brewers contrib uted liberally to St. John's campaign fund. If this is true it is a fine " illustration of the eternal fitnesa of things. A German paper estimates that France at present owns 600 miles on the went African coast, England 850 miles, or after the annex ation of the whole of the Niger delta, 1,300 miles; Portugal, 800 milse; the BepubEc of Liberia, 350 miles, and Germany 750 miles. The remaining 900 miles is owned by the na tives, but will doubtless be seized by the European powers in a short time. The eoast is chiefly valuable as opening a way into the fertile interior. . r " The business prospect is gloomy every' where. A Richmond -correspondent says that well informed business men in that city who have extensive "correspondence North and West predict that more new industrial enterprises will be started in Virginia1 this year than during any .year since the war. They base this prediction upon information derived from their own correspondents and what they hear en the subject from their business associates. Miss Lelia J. Bobertson who has won a good reputation as a lawyer in Boston," has lately removed to Washington territory 'find her prospects are said to be good. The bar of the territory, whioh includes some lawyers of more than ordinary talent and learning, has formed a favorable opinion of her i abili ties, and it is said that she is' likely to be .elected a judge when the people, having ad vanced beyond the territorial stage, can elect their. Own judges. Woman suffrage isat ready established in the territory, and women jurors are seen at every term of court, j , , - : ! The interesting and important question Whether Prince Bismarck drinks more beer than wine has been settled by two Prussians, residing in Warsaw, who taked one hun dred roubles each. and. in order to : settle their differences, addressed the Iron Chan eellor'on the subject.' They raeeived the following reply from the Prince's secretary ''His Highness directs me to inform you that yon are both iu the right, inasmuch as he is equally fond of good wine and good beer, and, with the exception of his sick days, partakes of the one as well as the other." The higher education of Hindoo women is steadily gaining ground in India, notwith standing native 'prejudices. Thus a high school for girls has been opened at Poona, and already claims some sixtyjpupils, several of whom are young wives, while the native community show great interest in the move ment. The Bombay Presidency is decidedly ahead of the other provinces inthisjrespect, but matters are greatly imprc. ving in Madras, where a much larger pecentage of girls now attend school than in previous years. A great increase is also noticeable among the Mohammedan female pupils. r.vt-L' A new smokeless locomotive is on trial on the Chicago and Northwestern, railroad, and is said to give great satisfaction. It burns the poorest quality of bituminous coal, and emits only a white smoke from the smoke stack. The latter is a round pipe, and is placed at the rear end of the boiler, near the cab, instead of being in front, as in the or dinary locomotive. There is a double set of flues in the boiler, a smaller set underneath and larger ones on top. The gases pass through the lower fiiles to the frontand then return by the upper flues to the stack. At the front there is a cinder chamber, with smoke arch, into which the larger particles of coal-dust fall, and another chamber at the end of the larger flues captures the lighter particles that have been carried that far. The New York Herald says : " During the current fiscal year nearly thirty-four million gallons of whisky must be" removed from bonded warehouses and either exported or thrown upon the market. In the latter event nearly thirty million dollars in taxes must be paid to the government by the owners of the whisky. , This tax, if enforced, means ruin to these owners, and, it is said, will involve the fall of many banks which have made heavy loans secured by this commodity. If three or four millions of gallons are thrown upon the market per month there is no limit to which the price may not fall. It costs about 16 cents to make a gallon of whisky, and the tax is 90 cents. There is going to be a heavy loss somewhere." If this means that the Democrats in the next session of congress are going to make another effort to relieve the whisky gamblers it is well to be warned early. Such a scheme ought not to be car ried through. The English customs returns, recently pub lished, show a decrease in the importation to this ceuntry of wool, of cotton piece goods, of jute, linen yarns, linen piece goods and silk goods, during the nine months ending September 30th, 1884, and an increase in the importation of handkerchiefs, shawls, rib bons, silks and other articles, goods of silk and other materials, wool and worsted fa brics, worsted fabrics, coatings and a slight increase in carpets, as compared with 1883. The decrease in the importation of raw wool, from $278,186 to $236,870, while the impor tation of wool and worsted . fabrics has in creased from $890,034 to $993,871, and of worsted fabrics, coatings, from $1,123,672 to $1,430,367, indicates that England, under the recent tariff reduction, finds it more profita ble to manufacture the wool into goods, and send the goods here, than to send the raw wool to the United States. Of course the more manufacturing England does for Amer ica, the less Americans have to do for them selves. COLD. . .. 1 . . - "No" matter how cold the day, Salt Creek" never freezes.

Swinburne In the Nineteenth Century. Dickens, so often accused of extravagance and repetition, was far more temperate and reserved, had a finer instinct for selection and suppression, than Beade. Here again, as in his apparent unconsciousness that fact done into fiction may easily or may ever be come disgusting and insufferable; he reminds us of th'e too conscientious 'and two assidu ous author of "Nana." What has been so absurdly not to say so imprudently at tempted in the cases of Samuel Richardson and .Walter Scott would be less" an outrage than a service to the genius and the memory of Charles Beade. Their masterpieces may be destroyed by evisceration; they cannot be condensed by compression. More than one or two of Beade's, if taken duly in hand by some less incapable restorer than the mutila tors of"Guy Mannering" and "Clarissa Har lowe," could only gain by the sweeping re moval of much undigested rubbish. The author's own principle of selection may not have been as capricious as it appears; but when he struck out of his longest novel that admirable ' 'Autobiography of a Thief, " which is one of his .finest and most thoughtful pieces of work, it is difficult to understand why he should have retained so much else which smacks alternately of sensational play bills and nauseating police reports. This lit tle record is nothing less than a masterpiece of tragicomedy; the fellow's style is perhaps the very finest evidence of his creator's dra matic faculty which could be adduced from the whole collection of Charles Beade's ro mances. That faculty, however, brilliant and versatile as it is, is never thoroughly or so strikingly displayed in the full completion or consummation of the work undertaken as in the vivid energy of single scenes, the viv id relief of single characters. The same, we must confess, may be said of all his contem porarieseven of the great masters who gave us "Esmond" and "David CopperfieH.'! Mr. Trollope, in his singularly candid and in teresting, as well as amusing, estimate of his own and other men's work, does not pretend to anticipate a survival of remembrance for more than two or three among the well nigh innumerable figures of his industrious and pertinacious invention. I should be disposed to assign a fully equal chance of survival to several others of their kindred, but when he foretells oblivion or neglect for Mr. Beade on the ground that he has left no such living and enduring figures not "a character that will remain" in any part of his work, the judgment seems to me as rash and foolish as his remarks on the rashness and foolishness of Mr. Read's own bearing and behavior on various matters of controversy are sensible and sound. Beade's unhappy and ludicrous habit of sputtering at any objection taken any part or feature of his work, of yelling and foaming at any reflection cast on anyone who had the fortune or misfortune of his friendship or acquaintance, was less injuri ous to his fame than what his friendly rival has justly stigmatized as his amazing mis conception of the duty nay, the very nature and essence of literary honesty. It must be allowed that he was rich enough to have dispensed with borrowed or stolen goods; that the assailant who should attribute his pilferings to the necessity of conscious in competence, to the compulsion or intellectu al penury, would stand self-confuted and self -convicted of stupidity as perverse as Mr. Beade's own fancy that he could honestly buy the produce of 'another man's brain and honorably pass it off as the produce of his own. mechanical Modes of Worship. From the Contemporary Review. One of the earliest and most characteristic sights to be visited by every new arrival in the town of Tokio is the great popular tem ple at Asakusa, to mo a most fascinating spot,' and one to which I returned again and again with eve-Tiew interest. Among the many attractions, all within the temple grounds, stands a very handsome five-storied pagoda, painted deep red and with pictur esque projecting roofs. That naturally drew thither. Very near this tall, quaint bnildisg stands a ..small, .peglected temple. with nothing externally attractive to invite the inspection of the foreigner; and, as the door is generally locked, no one, so far as I could learn, had ever had the curiosity to en ter, and the windows are so closely barred that little can be discerned by peering through them. That little, however, proved to me that this small temple had been built solely to contain one large object so strongly suggestive of the Thibetan prayer wneei mat I felt convinced I had found the object of my search. After considerable delay a very courteous young priest procured the key, nrxmed the ereat door, and revealed a most beautiful specimen of the Scripture wheel about ten teet m diameter ana twelve m height, of the richest scarlet aud gold and blacK lacquer. Tne actual cyimuer j en compassed with tall slender pillars support ing a beautiful wide canopy of lacquer, while the base rests on a stone pedestal of carved lotus leaves the invariable symbol round the throne of Buddha the jewel on the lo tus. This cylinder is. I think, hexagonal, and the handsome panels form six doors for the different compartments of this ecclesias tical bookcase, wherein rolled scrolls are ar ranged in upright order. These treasures are kept securely locKea, wnicn, nowever, no wise lessens the merit acquired by the devout, who (by the aid of spikes projecting from the base, as from a capstan) cause, the heavy ma chine to revolve, sunwise, on its own axis. Afterward I spent several days in this small temple to secure a careful drawing of an ob ject at once so curious and so beautiful. While I was at work various. Japanese came in, chiefly to see what I was doing; several gave the wheel a turn, apparently as an ex cuse tor naving come m, out eviueiitijr nivu out one grain of religious feeling connected with it. Even the priests seemed anxious that I should understand it was only a enri- s relic of an obsolete superstition, m fact, of all whom I saw approach the wheel, here or elsewhere in Japan, I only noticed one who appeared to be in earnest, and he was so, in very traca wonting wui a ri,;n.ii task with resolute purpose a weary man and heavv laden, fox he carried a heavy bur den fastened on his shoulders, and was too much absorbed to remember to lay it aown. Heidelberg. From the English Illustrated Magazine. In the town itself, thanks to the continual sieges and fires, there is scarcely anything that is old, but there is in .the German mind a special sentiment on the subject . of roofs which secures a certain picturesque element even in the modern streets. It is almost safe to say that, except in the fashionable Auloge and other places given up to comfort and abandonment bv, all the 'gods, there are scarcely two roofs of the same height and proportion in all Heidelberg, and the manner in which gables, mansards, projecting win? dows of every description, and roofs of every imaginable slope group themselves in un thought of and spontaneous variety, is an endless pleasure to $he eye, although the houses underneath those brown harmonious tiles have no architectural pretensions what ever. Here is a little square, for example, breaking the line of a long.street in which a vegetable market is held twice a week. A statue, black and uninteresting, upon which, however, the other day theisnow had arrang ed a mantle and cap, which looked -like er mine on the bronze, stands over the heads of the market people with their ; white and red umbrellas, their blue hoods and aprons, their piles of cabbages, that bread of life to the Germans; of itself the scene is pretty in the midst of the wintry gray, full of pleasant tones of color, and the? background of roofs has something in its irregularity, its sponta neous character, its homeliness" and natural ness.which gives just the appropriate setting. The roofs are ' high and low', :broken with high-set windows, striking into each hV per petual variety of pitch and intention,1 and culminating in a distant bulbous spire, and a tall -chimney which looks -like a tower. There is no pictoriaj meaning - in them, no vimhination or considered effect, anymore than there is in the headdress of the market woman, which consists of a small shawl, gen erally blue, closely covering the head, and with one end thrown over the shoulder the most primitive and simple, yet the most comfortable" and becoming of headdresses. Wherever one turns one's eyes the roofs form little pictures fall -of detail - picturesquely simple. We have counted five rows of gar rets in one, and there is no bound to the ee eentricitiea which vet have no air of the ec centric, ,bat,are always natural, upon which we look down from the heights. Architec ture has done little or nothing for the town; but yet a homely grace is secured in this way. Almost the only really old house left is thfevei-r handsome and imposing edifice in the Hanntstrasse. the "Bitter" Hotel, of which there is a popular legend that it alone was spared by "the French," (the impersona tion of all mischief,) because it was built by a Frenchman. It is of architecture similar to that of the existing portion of the castle, and is in admirable - preservation. How it was that Mr. G. P. B. James did not select this gruesome and fine old inn as the place at which his two horsemen alighted in the novel of "Heidelberg," it is difficult to understand. It was a curious oversight on the part of that ingenious antiquary. Cloaks AKD Cloafiis. low is the time to pur chase your Fall or Winter Cloak.
