The various shades of green in the foliage, intermingled with the purple blossoms of the China trees and the golden of the wesaohie are beautiful beyond descrip tion while the flower gardens are blos soming like a house on fire. The old City of the Alamo is almost hidden in roses. Although Galveston is a city of 40,000 Inhabitants, such thing as the free de livery of letters, or letter boxes on street corners, are unknown. The reason of this is that the city, having failed to number the houses and place the names of the streets upon the corners as Is re squired by law, the government declined to furnish letter-carriers, but as this defect is now being supplied, the dent sens of "Island City" will soon enjoy the metropolitan distinction of having their mail matter brought to their doors. The Husk Observer thinks there should be bloodhounds used in the West to capture robbers.

They will trail him as well if he is mounted as if he is on foon, and he may have forty eight hours the start of them, and yet they will follow his track. . . .. . . . . . A ..AME AND A DISGRACE. Tile Manner in Whleh tihe Engravimt 3 Ireau HMa Been Carried On. ([incinnati Enquirer.] WASHINOTON. May l.--8ome days ago John Sherman appointed a committee to investigate the working of the Bu reau of Engraving and Printing of the Treeury Department. The committee examined witnesses under oath, and took the testimony of a large number of the employee of the bureau. The outcome of the inquiry was the dismissal of Jewell, the chief of the bureau, and I the appointment of McPherson. This dismissal Implied that Jewell was turned out for cause, and pressure has been brought to bear on Sherman to give out the report of the committee which made the investigation. Yesterday he gave out an extract from it, merely reciting why the force in the bureau was re duced; but he withheld for reasons not satisfactorily explained, the more im portant details. If rumor be true, the committee paint Jewell, the ex-chief, as a monster of hideous mein. It is alleged that the testimnonyof some of the female employes was to the effect that they were appointed, not because their services to the government was an object, but either because they had yielded to the sensual appetite of the head of the bureau, or were the objects of his designs. The testimony tends to show that the government had been sup porting a harem for the use of Jewell and such friends as he saw fit to invite to share with him its benefits. Sherman is said to Le so much surprised at the evidence adduced that he is inclined to keep it from the public if he can. His course is denounced by some, who inti mate that he is trying to shield some of the platonic shortcomings of the late Assistant Secretary Conant, and one or two heads of Divisions of the Treasury who still retain their places. In taking this course he is doing an injustice to such estimable women as are in the department and they are quite indig nant that they should be open to sus picion; for while the report of the com mitte is kept quiet, they feel that the good suaer with the bad, especially from the shafts of scandal hurled at them by innuendo, at least from the gossips. If the Treasury has been run as a bagnio John Sherman has no right to shield those who patronized it, no matter how highly plumed may be the birds who will flutter. THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ASHED TO HELP THESE EMIIGRANTs. [Courier Journa.] Pennsylvania designs sending out of her limits the lawless population of the mining regions, or the surplus thereof, not needed for actual service in the mines. Hon. Hendrick B. Wright, of the Luzerne District, is going to try to secure government aid when Congress meets, to enable a large number of these people to "go West." The bill which he proposes to introduc provides that the government shall furnish teams, implements and money to the emigrants, to enable them to settle on farms. This enterprise will cost about $5,000, 000. No such special legislation is likely to receive the attention of Congress. If the government goes into the business of settling up paupers as farmers and furnishing everything, it will soon have its hands full. There are thousands of men besides the Pennsylvania miners who would like very much to be given such a "lift" In life. If such a measure was to pass' Congress, the government would next be required to enter upon a vast system of public works for the ben efit of the unemployed. If the State of Pennsylvania wants to get rid of her unemployed population, she should raise the money herself and purchase lands for them in New Mexico and else where. Wearlng of the Green. Under the viceroyalty of the Duke of Marlborough, Ireland is getting too much of the wearing of the green. At the banquet of the Lord Mayor of Dub lin, on Saturday night, the viceroy was present with the Duke of Connaught, all green from crown to toe. The duch ess and the ladies of her court wear dresses of green Irish poplin or silk and green bonnets and parasols. At some recent races the Duke of Connaught ap peared with his drags, the grooms decked out in green breast-knots. All the English are full of what the Herald calls mild Irishisms. If the mummery continuP another Napper Tandy may say with different significance, "they're hanging men and women there for wear. ing of the green."
