The complication growing ont of the killing of Italians in the New Orleans pris on has reached a very serious stage. On account of its. dissatisfaction the Italian government has recalled its minister to this country, Barou Fava, and he has ex plained the situation to the State depart ment. It is not, perhaps, greatly to be wondered at that this step has been tak en. It is not surprising that Governor Nichols' letter to Secretary Blaine was very unsatisfactory to the Italian minister and to his government. It did not offer much hope of such reparation as was de manded. But we think that, in spite of all the provocation, the action of the Italian government has been hasty. Of course it knows the difficult position occupied by the federal government in this matter. As things go in this country, the general government can do very little toward redressing wrongs done foreign powers by a State. It is not to blame for the delay of Louisiana in answering Italy's demands. Under the circumstances it is no wonder that the State department was surprised by Minister Fava's action. What the next step will be remains to be seen. VI conrse the general government will do all it can to give Italy satisfaction. But it is not to be denied that the condi tion of affairs is well calculated to exasper ate Italy. NEW YORK'S WAR CliAIlU. New York city has a big war claim against the government, and an attempt is to be made to collect it. The corpora tion counsel has been instructed by the board of aldermen to attend to the mat ter. When Major Anderson evacuated Fort Sumter he and his command came to New York city, and on the day after their arrival there was a great mass meet ing in Union square. On the day fol lowing, April 21, the common council appropriated one million dollars "to fit out volunteers and to aid in the provision of their families during their absence, to raise troops, fit out regiments, and fur nish arms and ammunition and military stores in aid of the government of the United States." The amount thus appro priated by the common council was raised by the issue of bonds of the city of New York, and was expended for the purposes named by the Union Defence cominitloc, which was composed of General John A. Dix, chairman, with the mayor, the comptroller, the president of the board of aldermen, anu tne president ot the common council. Only a part of the sum thus ap propriated has been repaid, the sum amounting to $104,429.79. Some of this was paid in 1862, more in 1868. None has been paid since that time. The re mainder of the million-dollar appropria tion ($895,570.21) still remains unsettled; and in addition the sum of $1,397,089.52 was paid by the city for interest on the bonds before their redemption, making the actual total expenditure, which has not been refunded, over two million dollars. There is justice in the claim that New York city onght to share in the general re funding, but it will probably be hard work to push such a claim through congress, even a Democratic one. EDITORIAL. NOTES. Don't be yourself. fooled to-day, and don't fool To-day the duty goes off of sugar. It looks as if the Sugar trust and Spreckels mean to get their share of the benefit. An East Boston man advertises for fleas. He wants them to train. It as if he might find fleas enough without advertising, even in Boston. Make way for Merced, Colorado. The Snn, of that town, says: "Merced, the starlit city of amphibions commerce in summer a paradise and in winter a flower garden possessed even now of the bones and sinews and arteries of a mighty city- the pride of the State and the apple of every eye shall assume all the charms of rarest beauty with the power and luxury that wealth can give. She sits to-day at the feet of her own possibilities, while passing stars sing together of her comiDg glory." It is often asserted that Woman is not an inventor of anything bnt plausible stories, but among the unusual inventions patented by women are improved bottle- stopper, improved method of fastening door knobs to their spindles, an appliance for plucking hair to be used in the dress ing of furs, improved method of prepar ing leather for the soles of boots and shoes, for improvements in electric arc lamps and for more reliable indicators, specially applicable for use on the rolling stock of railroads. A commendable bill has been introduced in the Pennsylvania legislature. It might be called the anti-freak bill, and is de scribed as "an act to prevent the exhibi tion of physical maladies, infirmities and deformities as a source of pecuniary gain." It is one of the strangest things in the world that any one would be willing to pay money to see such objects, but the most revolting malformations, the most repugnant freaks of nature,appear to have a powerful attraction for a large class of people. There are great changes. When coal was first used in England the prejudice against it was so strong that the house of commons petitioned the king to prohibit the use of the "noxious" fuel. A royal proclamation having failed to abate the nuisance, a commission was issued to ascer tain who burned coal within the city of London and its neighborhood, to punish them by force for.the first offense, nd by the demolition of their furnaces if they persisted in transgressing. A law was finally passed making it a capital offense to born coal in the city, and only permit ting it to be used by forges in the vincini- ty. It is stated that among the records in the Tower of London a document wi found, according to which s man wi hanged in the time of Edward I for no other crime than having been caught burn ing coal. The publication of Talleyrand's memoirs has led Philsdelphians to bunt for traces of his residence in their city. None of the houses in which he lived are now standing, however. The Philadelphia Times says: "Talleyrand was entirely deprived of any income from France while here, and it is well known that he was quite poor; and there is a tradition, which has been given considerable credence, that he kept a shop for the Bale of buttons. Bat it Is unlikely that he engaged in any business, as his residence in this city was not sufficiently prolonged. It is to be surmised that this tradition might have been founded on the fact that his rooms at the corner of Second street and Drinker's alley were overs store where buttons and other commodities were sold, and it is probable that in the absence of the proprietor the diplomat might have attended shop occasionally." The census will show the astonishing in crease in grape products which has taken place in this country. The grape indus try already represents an outlay, for land, improvements and machinery of $155,- 661,150, and famishes employment to 200,780 persons. Iu 1389, 401,261 acres were devoted to vines, of which 307,575 acres were in bearing, producing 572,139 tons of grapes. Of this product, 267,271 tons were table grapes, 240,450 tons were made into 24,206,905 gallons of wine, 41- 166 tons became 1,372,195 boxes of raisins and 23,252 tons were dried. California is devoting increasing attention to raisins and the yield is expected to reach 8,000t 000 or 10,000,000 boxes during the next five years. - The wines of California are fast making their way in competition with Enronean wines.' and Arizona claims to turn out sherries which equal the best im ported from Spain.

Some of the elegant evening toilets are studded with mock gems, and white silk chiffon dotted all over with French brilliants and draped over white moire shot with silver is one of the "art" crea tions sent from a noted English house. The French corsage witbont darts, save those in the tight waist-lining, is very gen erally adopted for thin summer toilets. It has usually oniy two seams visiuie muse under the arms; but when the figure is stout a gracefully arch side seam is added in the back.

This silk is an exact reproduction of the old-fashioned glace revived in company with the pinked ont ruches of other days. A flounce in panier effect falls from the waist and is headed by a shell trimming of cut jet. Special let ornaments are on tne bodice and sleeves. There is again a rage for trimming laces of every width, device and line, and very beautiful dress-nets can be purchased to matoh nearly every pattern of edging or flouncing lace. JNew uses are made or white, ecrue and black designs in laces 01 various patterns. They are oddly or gracefully disposed on skirt and bodice; tK.v fnrm rn.f. fronts, biohon or mutton- lec sleeves, collars, cuffs and points; and, nrettiest of all. they are made into dainty church-capes for country wear, in fichu form, ot exactly after the fashion of the cloth eapes now worn. When the cloth or princesae gown is made up without a foundation skirt, with it are Invariably worn sheath petticoats of surah or taffeta silk matching the color of the dress. These are closely gored and finished with a rrche or triple-pinked frills that are made very narrow and placed at the extreme edge of the hem. Jeweled buttons of high price are im ported this season to be used on the cor sages that are garmtured with the in creasingly popular gem-set dress trim mings. These jeweled passementeries are used with artistic moderation on expensive evening toilets of tulle, India gauze, silk crape, crepe de Chine and similar textiles. Translucent and exceedingly brilliant iri dsreent beads, which appear in all the colors and effects of gems, are also wrought in intricate and beautiful pat terns, in the form of stripes and sprays, on foundations of silk net, and thane ar. arranged to form fichu-foMs, berthas and Kecamier draperies on bodices and com pose sleeves entire. Similar embroideries in pearl and opal are on bridal mint of Bemraline, faille, veiled with crepe lirae, crepe de Chine, Sicilienne and mousaeline de sole.

In the creation of very special and elegant toilets for next season, French ateliers are making great use of certain rare tints of mauve. For more eeneral uses are anv number of tones indifferently so called. as, tor instance, hyacinth, uansr. dahlia. rhododepdron, and even the fruity magen ta tints inconeeqnentiv annear in the nn list. The most delicate tints in mauve are found in the brocades alluded to above, the crepes de Chine. India cashmeres, and upon some of the wonderfully beautiful nower aevices to De tonnd this season among stamped silk muslins and real French challies. Toques and capotes of rummer textiles are made flat and slender in effect with dented or fish-wife points in front. The wire 1 rames are covered with a soft roll of pale-tinted velvet or silk, and the love liest of Frem-h flowers are added, both front and back. One model of pakft ca nary chiffon has a roll of canary velvet al the edge, and in the indented front nestles a cluster of pale-yellow rose-buds and fo liage. A few of the blossoms and leaves are set upon the edge of the toque front and back, and on each cluster rests a but terfly made of the finest black thread- lace. The hat is made on a cold wire foundation, and its price is eighteen dol lars. Corded silk capes matching hanuixime costumes are among the lint of t-tvlit-li wraps for fall women.

From the New York Tribune. There are very few people who have abundance of cream to use who make pro per use of the advantage. All good housekeepers know nowadays that a cup of the best made coffee in the world is stale, flat and unprofitable without t-reaui, unless indeed it be drunk after dinner perfectly clear and strong. It is a barba rism that only a few of our cheaper res taurants are now guilty of, to offi-r toffee with milk. On the contrary it seems to us that tea gains nothiug, but rather loses some of its delicacy of Uavor when served with cream, gaining a body that is incon- siftent with its nature. There are none of the breakfast cereals that are not doubly delicions served with 1 ream. A pasty, half cooked dish of oatmeal served with thin milk is quite a different dish from the same grain when each kernel of the mnsh is swollen out to full distinct perfec tion, and it is served hot with ice-cold cream. 1 litre is something particularly delicious in whipned cream served with any kind of sweet fruit. Preserves of all kinds are excellent with whipped cream, yet wnat a comparatively rare thing it to see them served in this way, except in families where there is a French chef. The use of cream in soups and meat dishes is only beginning to be understood in this country. There are few of the thick white soups that do not owe their perfec tion to the cup of hot cream added just before serving. Creamed chit-ken, or chicken setved in a fricassee in which the yolks of eggs are freely used with cream is especially delicions. There are few dishes of fried fish that may not be appro priately served a la creme, or 1:1 creme sauce. Often a cream sauce is made of milk, and it is very nice made in that way, but by way of variety make use of genu ine cream and see how excellent the change is. Croquettes and many other dainty en trees of meat owe their supreme excellence to the use of cream. Tuns far we have not touched upon the almost innumerable delightful desserts that may be made with a foundation ot cream. Unarlotte Km becomes the Bimplest of desserts when once the art of beating cream is acquired. Ibis can be done with an ordinary rsa whip, but most persons can Bncceed better with a cream churu. The ordinary little churn of tin, a cylinder but two inches across, is of no practical value, and there fore a delusion and a snare, lo be of nse a churn should be a cylinder at least three and a halt inches across and about ten inches long. Cream can be rapidly beaten in such a churn. As the froth rises it skimmed off 011 a rievc, which is placed over a pan to drip. There is always some cream 111 a nnnrt that will not beat to froth, and this will drain into the pan and should be used for coffee or some other purpose. It is not necessary to beat cream to a froth in making ice-cream, or in ninking desserts in which cream is used. Havanan cream and all varieties ot mousses call for beaten cream. That grand triumph of the French chef a art, a gateau St. llonore, is made with a combi nation ot putt paste and the boiled paste nsed for celuirs and cream cakes. Whipped cream properly flavored and sweetened and a suitable decoration of candied fruit completes the dish. An iced or cold rice pudding made with a mixture of whipped cream and boiled rice proper ly flavored is one of the best desserts we have. A Man I nder Cloud. New York Letter to the Chicago News.) At a table crowded with journalistic lights and "literary fellers" I saw a darV eyed man, his face ornamented with very black whiskers, who some one behind me told some one else was Washington Na than. "You all remember the famous Nathan murder, over which there was -so much excitement and such a long trial a good many years ago," this somebody ex plained in a discreetly lowered tone. "Well, sir, Washington Nathan is the son of that rich old man who was killed in his bed. There were ngly insinuations cost about at the time of the trial, but nothing was proved, and when the great Twenty- third street family mansion had been shnt np a sufficient length of time the heirs tried to rent it. The house wore a placard for a number of years, bnt even the toughest-skinned man or woman had crawly feeling when they went Into it. and, as it lay a dead weight on the owners nan as tney pnt it up for sale. A big press company bought it, tore down the old house and built its uptown depot on tne nrst irst floor and turned the upper stories btisiness offices, where the ghost of into mysteriously murdered old Nathan dare not penetrate, .
