The following Senate committees will meet
this morning: The Judiciary Committee at
10 o'clock, the Committee on Auditing the
Etx.enses of the Henate at 10 :10, and the
O(Jmmcttee on Agriculture and Commerce
at 10.
The Nebraska Democratll convention In
etrnoted the delegates to Clncinnati to vote
for the two-thirds rule.
One of the able staff of the OlCncinnatI (Ibm
mereal haee made an Interesting discovery.
He has found an Old Linn WIig, and the ()ld
Line Whig thinks that John Sherman would
be a good man to nominate for the l'reil
dency. Is his name Key?
The Rhode Island Renate is determined to
ineur the enmity of the woman's rights peo
ple. It has again--11 to 17-voted down the
House resolution extending the right of suf
frage to women. Rhode Island, It may bie re
marked In passing, is the State where a nat
Uraliaed citlzen is no cltizen unless he owns
real estate.
A meeting of representatives of the colored
race was held in Washington the other d,.y,
at which the exodus quesUton was discussed.
it was asserted by a delegate from Indiana
that about 5000 negroes had settled in that
State In the past six months, and that these
were about as many as it could stand just at
present. The general bellf expressed by
those present at the meeting was that if the
exodue movement revived, it would be to
Wards Ohio, and that "the buckeye 8tteo"
Would get a consilderaille colored addition to
its population,
Victoria, the old Apache chief who has led
the troops such an unprofitable race during
the past two years, did not appear at the
recent peace meeting in New Mexico, called
for his accomodation, but sent a message In
aeead. He stated that if his wife and children
were sent to him, and the soldiers would talk
straight he would make peace. The mes
sage concluded with the exasperating, if
truthful, statement: "We have made the
soldiers cry and we can make them cry
asain." It is evidently time for Major Mor
row to ask for reinforcements. The troops
now in the field only number 700, while Vic
toria's forces are not less than 200.
Roger A. Pryor's application for relief from
political disabilities not only recalls the past
but oclls forth some interesting present In:
formation concerning a man who, twenty
years ago, was the most widely reputed
me mber of Congress. Since the war Gen.
Pryor has reolded in Brooklyn, N. Y., where
he has ignored polities and confined him
eelt to the practice of law. As a result he has
a large and lucrative practice and an enviable
reputation in his profession. He is said to
look as young as when in the Thirty-sixth
ongress. His tall thin figure is as erect, his
eye as full of fire, his movements as active
sad his long black hair as untouched with
hrost as then, says a special telegram. Hils
applic ation for a removal of disabilitiee at
this late day creates much comment. It is
probably his intention to enter political life
once more.
A curious case of forgery is that of Dr.
Whiteford, In England. One Chas. Shurety
was under sentence of death in Newgate
prison, the day for the execution being fixed
for January ,5. Dr. Whiteford, who inter
eated himself in the case, was convinced that
Shurety was an innocent man, and that if
more time was given him he would be able
to prove this innocence. The result was that
on January 5 the warden at Newgate who had
the execution of Shurety in charge received
only a few minutes previous to the time ap
pointed for the execution, a stay of proceed
ings, purporting to be signed by the Under
Secretary of State. This document, upon
examination, was shown to be a forgery, exe
outed by Dr. Whiteford, purely from philan
throplo motives. The case is being proee
Onted, and the doctor is likely to spend a few
weeks with his friend Shurety in Newgate.
Apropos of brutality in jail, the case of the
abelR of Sandusky, Ohio, might well be
looked into. One Wilson Is in jail there under
sentence of death. The other day when
agered his meal by the wife of the sheriff he
refused it and cursed her roughly. The
a.erif being informed thereof resolved, as he
said, "to take a little of the cussedness out of
Wilson." The latter had his arms extended
through the Iron grating of his cell and was
handcuffed. He was then strippedand given
twenty lashes on the bare skin which brought
the blood at every stroke; in fact the blood
streamed down his bare legs on the floor.
To ordinary persons this torturg of a pri
-Soner under -entence of death would seem
.,tel, and some might even hint that a sheriff
S not legally entitled to cowhide his prison
re whenever he sees fit. The people of San- I
dinky, however, think differently and, the
eorrespondent of the Cinntonati Ehquirer who 1
gives the facts in this case asserts, "generally
sanotion the aheriff in the manner he pun- 1
inbed Wilson and some say he did not give I

Two of our neighbors have mentioned In
complimentary terms the name of this din
tingulshed gentleman in conneetion with the
selection of a commissioner to act for the
United States in the indemnity treaty with
It is not probable that this gentleman
would abandon his large and lucrative prac
tice to arr-pt a government appointment, as
he but lately declined a position upon the
Supreme bench for similar reasons; but his
emtinent fitness for high and responsibie
trust is so well recognised In the community
in which he has lived and labored for forty
years, that we also venture the suggestion of
his name to the government, which would be
honored by his service.
It is sald that this duty should fall upon a
good lawyer, a Union mnan, and one who is
versed In the French Ianguage. No gentle
muan within the clrcle of our acquaintance
more fully meets these requl rements.
M r. Itoler is a native of M issourl. After
comupleting a classical Lcurse at; St. Mary's
(lolle ge, he visited Paris, where he remained
for two years engaged in the earnelt study
of the civil law, and where his pro
gress was greatly facllltated by his
aequirements as a Latin and French
scholar. Upon returning to America Mr.
Roster studlied the common law under
Judge Nathaniel Pope, and removed to New
Orleans in 1819. Having studied the civill
law as a science, tracing it from its source,
through European jurisprudence, and par
ticularly in France, where he became thor
oughly familiar with the French commenta
tore on the civil law and the Code Napoleon,
he has added to this store of knowledge an
active practice of forty years in Louisiana.
Mr. Rosier was an earnest opponent of se
cession, belleving It to be against the best In
terests of the State, but, although true to the
lUnion, he was active in ameliorating the
condition of our people during the war and
throughout the period of reconstruction. He
was the trusted advisorof lGen. Hancock, who
tendered him the position of Governor of
Louiselna In 1807, which was declined.
The chief distinction which Mr. Itosler
wears, however, is a reputation for in
tegrity which is unsullied by a single act
unbecoming a patriotic clllaen or an
eminent moember of the bar, and which has
won for him the respect and confidence of the
entire commnnlty. Such a man would reflect
credit upon any government, anti would dile
charge with fidelity and inflexible justilee any
trust that may be committed to his care.
In comparing the list of Senators and Hlop
resentatives In the Thirty-ninth Congress
(8l(i) with that of the presrnt Congress, we
find, as might be expected, many changes in
the strength of parties as well as in the mem
oership. Twenty-five States were repre
sented in the Senate and House In 1865, but
the eleven Southern States having been ad
mnitted to representation and two new SHttes
admitted into the Union, the whole num her
now is thirty-eight. In 1805 the Democrats
had 22 per cent of the Senators and 22 28 per
cent in the lHouse; now they have 55 2; per
cent In the Senate and 50.17 In the House. In
1865 the House had 184 members; In 188'0 it
has 293.
The most noted Senators in 1805 were Sum
ncr, Wilson, Reverdy Johnson, Zacli Chand
ler, Ben Wade and John Sherman, all of
whom have since died except Sherman, who
is now Secretary of the Treasury. Doolittle,
of Wisconsin, and Trumbull, of Illinois,
were In 1865 with the Republicans, hut are
now with the Democrats. Thomas A. Iien
dricks was Senator in 1865. Anthony, of
Rhode Island, is the only Senator of 1(465 who
1i now a Senator.
In the House were Blaine, Rollins, Dawes,
Conkling, Garfield, Voorhees, Allison, Win
dom and Ferry, all of whom are now Sena
tors, except Garfield, who is a Senator elect.
President Hayes, ex-Vice President Colfax
and Speaker Rankall were members of the
House In 1865; and so were Justin Morrill,
James W. Patterson, N. 1'. Binks, George oS.
Boutwell, W. B. Washburne, Win. D. Kelley, I
Gen. Schenok, John A. Bingham, I'had.

The only members of the House In 18C,5
who are still members are: Wmin. 1). Kelly,
Samuel J. Randall, Charles O'Neil, James A. I

Representative Ward has Introduced in the
House a joint resolution relative to inter
state commerce slmlar to the one introduced
by Senator Cameron. He says his object is
to have the subject before both branches of
Congress so as to Insure speedier action. Tho
bills now before Congress are, in
Mr. Ward's opinion, exceedingly crude,
and their provisions would be fa
tal to the grain-producing Interests of
the West, now nearly 4,000,000 of bushels
per annum, and a deathblow to the vast ex
port trade of the Eastern seaboard cities.
He says that in the city of Chester, where he
resides, the unequal effects are exemplified.
Two railroads reach Chester, the Baltimore
and Reading. The first is lnterstately and the
second is altogether Pennsylvania. The
Reading has greater length in mileage
than the Baltimore, and yet under
this bill It would be exempt from
its provisions, while the Baltimore road
would be subject to all its exactions
and penalties. Such discrimination, Mr.
Ward thinks, would be disastrous to every
neighborhood in which it operated. He be
lieves that a commission of men who thor
oughly understand the railroad business of
the country will be the safest way to reach a
satisfactory and sensible solution. The de
feat of the Reagan bill in committee would,
however, appear to have been the logical re
sult of the railway interest at Washington.
The power of the railroads, in both the Na
tlonal and State legislatures, is almost om
nipotent. The moderate success of the
granger movement a few years ago in sev
eral of the Western States, proved futile, in
a measure, when reduced to practice, for the
reason that the legislation to which it per
tained was crude, and lacked brains, equity
and uniformity. The railroad people proved
too much for the farmers and shippers. In
1877 Reagan's tnterstate commerce hill pass
ed the House of Representatives, but failed
in the Senate. It is alleged that it was
slaughtered in the committee of the pres
eat House through the subtle influence
of the railway power, which "terror
izad" some of its advocates. The matter
mostly complained of by the grangers is the
cost of transportation of wheat to the sea
board. All the rphi s of theo WWet in order to
find a market at the time alluded to had, to a
large extent to pass over some railroad. The
bulk of the wheat was sent to Chicago and
the lake ports, and to St. Lousle, whence It
found its way during the season of naviga
tion to the Erie canal and Albany, whence all
that was Intended for export was sent to New
York and Boston, conelslerahle quantitles
also finding Its way to Philadelphia andt Bal
timore by Bouthern routes. The cost of trans
portatlon to the East eats up about one-half
the value of the wheat, and the farmPtr' pro
fit Is made small in order that the heavy
freights may be paid and the large profllt of
the middle men be gained. The improve
ment of the mouth of the MIslsseIlppi s as to
admilt the largest class of sea vessels has of
late opened up a new outlet for the grain pro
ducts of the West, but the relief Is far
from teing such as required. in this
connectliol. however, it may be
remarked that the West has given nottee that
with thle nw political inlluieno which It will
poseepe In (!ongress, ulider the next eenustt
atId a new apportiotltllnll,, it will bie able,wlth
the help of a portion of the HMouth, to realize
the main principles of the Iteagan bill. Hitnce
Its Introdutct Ion as a factor In commerce, forty
years ago, the railroad has revolutionlzed
trade and played havoc wit It tast met hlslA of
business, obviated the dtefects and drawlbicke
of water-courses, built up magnifloent sea
ports and created large Internal cities; but at
the same time It has seriously Interfered with
lake, river and canal trafic, diverted an Im
mense business from the Misslsslppi route,
and almost ruined the tradeof the free naviga
tion of the economical water system of the
country. Railroads are the promoters of In
dustry and commerce, but they also invent
and maintain discriminate and onerous
freight rates, which in effect offset the advan
tages of quick transit.
The DI)EMOCnAT congratulates the Supreme
Uourt upon the selection of the Hon. George
W. Dupre as clerk of the new court, and we
feel aseured that the -. lection will be recelved
throughout the Sta ith the same senti
ments of satisfaction that we exr,erlence In
commenting upon the appointment.
Few men In Lousleana have partlcipatel

Whatever dilffererns of opinion lmay have

it cannot be disputed that the party through

fact that the management was fearless, lndo
pendent and Incorruptible, and worked un
ceaelngly for the public good as they under

In the campaign of 1879 Mr. D)upre made a
canvass of the State, and labored with great
seal wherever placed. lIe is active, energetcl
anti the soul of honor, and will discharge the
duties connected with his responsible poil

satisfaction to the dilstingulshed gentlemen
composing the court.
In a paper read before a meeting of the Royal
Soolety, Mr. J. B. Hannay, the eminent iootoh
chemist, described the discovery whih led
finally to the artlficial productllon of diamonds.
After showing how he was led to test whether
solids were soluble in gases, he wont on to do.
scribe the experiments he had made with the
aid of a pressure apDoratuls doevisd on pur
pose. With the asslstance of this apparatushe
was able to show a etystal of potawsle Iodide,
dissolving in alcohol gas-by which is meant a
fluid at any temperature above its critical
point. He described experiments with va.
rlous solids and gaseous solvents -experl.
ments in which such non-volatile solids
as iodide of potassium, chloride of cobalt
and bromide of potassium were dissolved
in gaseous alcohol and again crystalized
from It. Some of the phenomena were very
beautiful. When, for example, the pressure
was suddenly taken off the gaseous solution of
iodide of potassium a crysaalline deposit Im
mediately occurred, resembling a snow shower
in miniature. Some solids gave colored gase
ons solutions. Oaballous chloride, for In
stance, gave the gas a deep blue color. Mr.
Hanney concluded his paper by saying that he
considered that in these experiments there is
further proof of the perfect continuity of the
liquid and gaseous states, and also a complete
proof of the solubility of solids In gases. It is
well known to mineral gists that many rat
ural crystals contain small cavities filled with a
liquid. This liquid requires very great pres
sure to retain it; andt it is. In fact. a gas under
ordinary circumstances. So great is the pres
sure exerted by this iquiltled gas that such
crystals frequently burst, and not very
long ago the bursting of a diamond
was reported. These facts find a probable
explanation in Mr. Hannay's experiments, and
it is most probable that many natural crystals
have been deposited from gaseous solutions.
and some of the gas has been entangled In
them. This, on cooling, has been condensed to
a liquid, and as the out-Ide pressure has been
removed since its formation, the crystal is left
in such a state of strain that a slight cause is
sufficient to burst it. It was evident, ther, fore,
that if some solvent could be found to dissolve
carbon when p'aerd under conditions of great
pressure and temperature the problem of the
artificial production of diamonds could be
solved. Mr. Hanna) described how he searched
for a long time la vain for such a solvent.
Hydrocarbon was first tried, then the dissocia
tion of hydrocarbon by means cf a metal was
attemrted. and, at last, successfully, by sub
mitting a hydrocarbon in the presence of a
nitrogeneous substance to immense pressure
and heat. On opening the iron tubs,. in which
the experiments were performed, minute crys
tals of diamonds, or. in other words.crystalized
carbon were found to hae been deposited,
The New Yorkers continue to agitate the
question of "servant galism." and in their dee
peration readily fall in with any plan 'hat
promises relief from the ceaselses conflict with
Ignorant, incompetent, dishonest and domi
neering domes ic. One of the latest efforts to
regua-lat the relation between amelo-vnrs and
employee in the household, to impose dome-tic
service, restore the homo comforts and bless
those who s-rve therein is in the establishment
of a "Protective Union anu] Dtrecto v." a
'training school" to fit a rvnts for their work,
and a home called "Martha's Rest." where those
who are disqualiflid by age or sickness can
find rest, sywR athy and conaldsrate care. The
means devised are intended to supersede the
Sineietent aid demoralltinm da nelee whleh
war salunet the beet Interests of both emlvoy
era and employee. Many 'Intelliaenoe offioee"
have the effect, It Is thought, of encouraging a
class of servants to seek rates of weaee
to do work for which they are partially or
totally diqunalfied. In many cases the
housekeeper finds that she has been deliberate
ly deceived by false pretensions, awl that she
must either dlscharge the presumptious im
poet ,r after an annoying and teaing trial,
or set abut the dinsagreeable duty of drilling a
stupll servant, In the meantime paying the

plare "Mairtha's Rest" would .iter too great a

ser vice. Thie last feature would prove a most
oDrplar one among our colored servants in the
Routh. but there would be a strong demand fr
an enlaremrnent of its provisions so as to admit,
males as well as females. Title might be dine,
however, by a slight change of title so that
while the female doepatment was known as
"Marthi's Itrst.," the male dtlepartment onult

FrTti50 FLATbs IN llW TOB5,
The constiuetion of buildingl in Now York
on the Fr.lnch systnm nppVars to havoegven
or eat satlsfection to owners as well as tenants;
the former class finding them among tlhe most
proflitabl investments in the city. while the
let ter 'larn speem disposed to pay more for a
flat than for a whole house. Many now apart
rnent houses have iben built in ihe Utper part
of the city, and many old dwellings
have been iconverted Into these flat.s,
Not only are those houllse already finished
'naoltntlI full, bit, many of thian
the fotnIdntlons of whlch hive only jinst eenn
laid. have already every floor rented. From a
statement publshbed in a Now York paper it
would seem that inll th handIRO.nRm flat - hotIes
around Central Park the rent is very hlth in
comparison wl!h that of a whole house. all tro
conmrnorlntiione taken into conlsideration. Bult
personnn who live in flats have this advantage
ov r t whewho IIve in houses: the halls are all
timore or Ices handsomely furnlshed, h, ated and
ilihelld. Hand to. mnny hourehohlders these ate ni,
nsmll eonslderntiions. There Is also a saving
in the matter of hired help; one servant In a
flat will do the work of two In a house, and
thu. peotple who have been In the
habit of employing four or morn Per
vnlts owan, In a French flat, live jtust
as aicely with two. In other ways there is a
saving In the expense, and, therefore. versmon
with esrmal salaries, who wish to live In a rlalr
atle nihboltrhood, find that. they can furnish a
flat for mu-h less than they can an entire
houses, antI, if necessary, can live easily with
out any servant at all. as in all fliet class fltis
there is a janitor who attends to all the heavy
w trk, thus making It no drudgery for a lady to
do her own housework. If any one is desirous
to learn In what esteem these modern dwellinga
places are held in Oothnam. they should start
out In soaruh of a flat with the expertation of
getting one for a Pmall rent. 11H will, it is
saidl, lnd that diont. l1201 eand In100O are not con
sidered high priees at all for unfurnished
apartments; and when he comes to furnished
fl..ts he will discover that the rents range far
above these figures. A very coasy little house
may be hired for any one of these sums. but
they do not seem to be In demand. In fact the
"rage" just now in New York seems to be for
anythlt g that Is forelig,. no matter whether it
is an improvement on home habite or Inslltu
tions or the reverse. It is said that the cheavor
flat houses of New York are always over
crowded. and are situated in undesirable neigh
borhoods on the extreme west or east sldes of
the city, or along the lines of the elevated rail
ways. There are very few flat houses down
town. as that part of the city was already built
up before the French style of living had become
the flashion.
Like the "perpetual motion" men. the advo
ca'es of aerial navigation cling tenaciously to
their pet theory. and adopting the motto f
P'rry. declare their intention not to "give up
the ship." 1 he New YTrk (/raphic of a recent
date had what purported to be a report of an In
tnrview with the renowned Edison. wherein he
was represented as having found out the se
cret of flying on the wina as well as of extract.
Ing gol,I from miners' "tailings." And now
comes Prof. litchell, of Bridgeport. Conn.,
the patentee of one hundred and thirty-five in
ventions in this country, who says
he thinks his flying machine will Drove the
means by whlch the North Pole will be reached.
Ills flying machine, it to said, looks like a bal
loon having a gas bag and a car. but it is not a
balloon because it does not lift itself. The car,
a strong, light, Ingenious contrivance, has two
fans that look like propeller screws. One is on
the end of the car and steers it: the other is a
vertical fan of the same shape, placed under the
seat. and raises and lowers the whole machine.
The gas bag lifts but 9s per cent of the weight.
The operator, by means of the euder fan,
must lilft the remaining 1 per cent. Both
fan8 are operated by a hand crank oppo
site the seat. Prof. Bitohell says that a
balloon is not so good. To lower a bidlloon
you have to let out gas; to raise it you must
must throw away ballast, and so. In time.
nneither gas nor ballast are left. In the flying
machine the gas Is in an air-tight bag,. and is
never let out, and only 5 per cent is lost in
twenty-four hours. No ballast is used, yet the
machine is easily directed and controlled. The
professor says that it has been been made to
fly through adverse currents, but he admits
that it cannot combat a strong wind, although
it can be sent above or below any hostile wind
current. Bis idea Is that, If it is true, as scl
.-ntists pay, that there is no wind at the North
P,1 . or if Ihere are only moderate winds, his
machine or uld brgin the work of exploration
from the 'urtht t point a ship could go.
