The present nituatien in regard to the Preai dential niaddle reminds ns of the old story of the two bulb that got to fighting on the bridge. One butted the other over the nde of the bridge into the river below, and the victor, from a mixed feeling of amazement at the sudden and unaccountable digappearance of his adversary and fear that he might fol low, snddenly backed over the other side and fell into the water, no better off than the boll he sent before him. The Radicals have butted tke Democrats into the Florida lakes, but in backing out, in amazement at their vic tory, they will plunge themselves into the Oregon maelstrom. There is certainly no cause for the despondency that seems to par alyze the Democrats of the south. The prec edent that the hih commission has already established elects Tflden, beyond all question. It gives him Oregon, which secures his elec- J tlnn.

The high commis ion cannot be guilty of the infamy of discriminating between Florida and Oregon when precisely the same in involved. The course of the judges in making their decision accord - ins to their particular predilections has occa- ! jned much surprise and unfavorable com ment. But whatever may be the final verdict of the commission, it was the best that could be done under the "circumstances. It will prevent oar country from being Mexi can ized. The danger of war was imminent. Anarchy and revolution seemed inevitable. There were m:my and seriom disputes aboat the votes; the whole proceeding of choosing a President, from the deposit of the individual lul!ots to the certification of the votes of Stat;, was brought into question in various localities, and, to cip aiJ, there was scarcely an authnry in the land that was not dis-putedwh'-nitwx-proposed by one or the other f : ie to iuvok? arbitration by any of the con F'ituted authorities.

In The couuueror caiitUe train who ex EMPIRICISM. Our able and efficient member in the State legislature. Dr. Maddux, has introduced bill in the legislature to prohibit the practice of medicine by only those licensed by a board of State examiners. It is to be hoped the bill introduced by Dr. Maddux will pass. Quacks and ignorant pretenders to medical skill should be denied the privilege of experiment ing on human life. Men without a reg ular professional education should not be allowed to impose on the ignorant, who have as much faith in the charlatan as the scientific physician. We have numerous sanatory laws for preventing disease, and we should have others to prevent quacks from killing the pa tient after the disease has made its appear ance. There is no incentive for spending many years ana much money in acquiring a scientific knowledge of medicine if the graduate is forced to come in contact with the pretender and his tansy-tea nostrums, used as 'a specific for every disease. The dog law was passed to protect sheep, and Dr. Maddux's bfll should pass to protect the hu man family from the wolves that are destroy ing it. Next to newspaper men, it is a well authenticated fact that doctors are gen erally the worst-paid laborers in the worms vineyard, and those have prepared themselves, hv pending time" and money, should be protect- ir-unsi ine empirics who know no more about disease or the medicine prescribed for its cure than the blacksmith, the carpenter or the brickmakon.

An imper --a --"---"a uainruuua, ana con- i or me same reason a qnack should be condemned and not al lowed the orirtrtuiJty of killing.

Londvn Hhop-Glrls. London Glob : A formidable the not invariably rosy path throneh lite of the industrious artisan the good, plodding family man, whose matrimonial anion has been blessed by a numerous progeny is what to do with the girls when thev arrive nf. nn age to quit the paternal abode and provide for themselves. Several courses nre mvn tn him, but mainly there are but three. He can have them instructed in the art of sewing by machinery, and thus enable them to earn a livelihood as in-door or out-door "hands" at some city warehouse; he can have them ap prenticed to a shopkeeper as counter assist ants; or he can consent to their joining the ranks ot domestic servitude. Rather than adopt either of the other courses mentioned. his young daughter goes into some respect able house of retail business some linen- draper s, oi fancy stationer's, or milliner's establishment 'to become apprenticed, and become eventually a oounter-wonlan. There are many plausible reasons for this selec tion which carry great weight, especially with parents of young girls whose one aim in life is to appear "genteel." It is not a menial occupation. One may appear in it fashionably attired, and with hair arranged after the latest mode. Ear-rings and a brooch are not objected to, and more precious than all it is .the invariable rule at such places never to address employes by their christian names. In domestic service this is oft-times the bitterest part of the portion a high-spirited young house-maid is made to swallow. She is expected to bear her baptismal cogno men just as she is made to wear a cap and apron; nay, some mistresses show themselves so arbitrarily disposed as to insist on the new servant, whatever her name may be, taking that of the last, because it comes handier1 and the children are used to it. But at the estab lishment of the linen-draper every female assistant . is a "young lady," and is addressed in public, as well as in private, as "Miss." But, H.las! when these few advantages, con siderable though they may be, are. enumer ated, the bright side of the picture is exhaust ed. It is a fact as umleniftl'l as it is dis graceful to an age when grown working men have such tender regard for themselves, and are so je-.iloasly watchful lest their charter of "ten hours a day" shall be iiifrintti-d, that the shop-girl is one of the most hardly used of the human creatures compelled to labor for bread. The terms on which they are commonly engaged are of themselves prepos terous, and atl'ord melancholy evidence of the state of the girl labor market. The ordinary practice is to insist on a young woman first entering the business to serve from one to two years as a "learner," during which time she receives no remuneration, excepting her food and lodging: after which, if she has " . -- --!

Thei-d died in this city yesterday a woman so little known, even to the people on the block in which she lived, that the crape on the door was tho first warning many of them had that she had been ill. It was the Widow Hutley, and living in the same cottage, and made a widow at the same time, was Mrs. Ebberts: As the trial of John D. Lee brought brvck to public recollection the horrors of pioneer life in the west, the death of Mrs. Hutley may again uncover that page of his tory on which was written the Indian massa cres of frontier settlers in Minnesota. Both widows were victims of that brief and bloody strife which desolated so many cabins on that pickets-line of civilization. History forgot to record tbeir names and their heroism. Let both be chronicled here. When the frontier troubles began the two widows were wives and mothers, bving in log cabins about a mile apart. These two cabins were the only ones for three or four miles either way, and when the conduct of the Indians became so suspicious that prudence counselled removal from tV frontier, the Elertj family left their home-? aiiu' consoli dated with the Hutleys for mutual de.'; EacH family had two children, making eig..r-net-sons in the cjiWn. The Indians had tfiil- l'ar molested no one, but thev wore fierce and no maid-of-all-work who ever drudged single- nanaea tor a lamily ot seven has such a hard time of it as the shop-girl who is to be iound at the present time in every part of London. Of course, there are exceptions. Ir is gener ally understood that at the most important establishments, where, perhaps, two dred or three hundred young peo ple of either sex are employed, ev ery possible attention is paid to their domes tic comfort and moral welfare that baths and books and all manner of healthful enter tainment are provided for them after business hours, which close early in the evening and allow a half-holiday on Saturday. But where there is one such wholesale place of business, there are in the metropolis a hundred of the paltry sort, where the number of "hands'' employed does not exceed half a dozen or so, and where it is found necessary to adopt a rigorously-calculated "cutting" system in order to make business pay and keep pace with equally Bharp competitors. It is at such daces where the roor shoD-cirl is made to pay the pains and penalties which attach to the business of her choice. Eight o'clock in th 'morning is the ordinary nour at which these shops are opened, and they remain open until nine or ten at night. jNmety hours between Monday morning ana Saturday night of daily work, incessant, were it not for the brief time allowed for meals, which shon-room being the first considera tion in the arrangements of the house are usually taken in tie more or less unwhole some kitchen. Crowded with goods, in the summer Hm rh third or fourth-rate draper's shoo is nnVienmrilv close and oppressive, and if the Diane is constantly crowded with cus tomers, the air of course suffers in propor tion.

Mr. Hutley had not been ome an hour when the children, rendered nervous and irritable by their close confine ment, engaged in a quarrel. The eldest chdd was only five, so that no great physical damaere could have been inflicted, but the i ouarrel anirered the mothers; harsh words would not remain in the Hutley cabin another hour. Her husband was foolish enough to ol.-.iw in her feelings, and at once prepara tions were made to return and occupy his nvn rahin He took the bed on his back. nnd the oldest child by the hand, and started frr Vinme lpnvinor his wife to follow on with his nfle and the other child. Anger brought such a spirit of recklessness that the man no ivn,wr fonred any dancer. Mrs. Ebberts did not immediately "follow, having to make up a bundle of little articles, and tne nusoann nau about twenty minutes' start of her. While both women were heartily ashamed of their silly conduct five minutes after their hot words had been spoken, yet neither would be the first to make conciliatory advances, and Mrs. Hutley stood in her cabin door and saw Mrs! Ebberts and child disappear in the for est Just as she lost siglit oi uuem sne neara the report of rifles and faint yells in the di rection of the other cabin, and she instantly divined that the long expeciea mow naa fallen. Forgetting everything but the fact fhnf her neighbors were in peril, she took down the spare rifle which her husband had provided, and which she knew how to use, LoJ Vior ehildren not to leave the cabin. and in two or three minutes she was running i.,,Vi thft woods after Mrs. Ebberts. it Z-a v,of vhliprta had iust reached his homTwhen he was attacked by a band of at it c linns. The chdd was shot dead at the first volley, but the father prolonged his life for a few minutes by dodging from tree to tree. His wife was within eighty rods of him when he was killed. She heard the firing and whooping, and, while prudence warned her to retreat, her love forced her on to join her husband. The Indians had caught sight of her and opened fire when Mrs. Hut ley came up. History will never record a braver deed. Rendered desperate by the al most certain knowledge that her husband and one child had been murdered, Mrs. Ebberts was like a tigress. She had her husband s rifle, and for a time the two lone women t.oi.1 ihof. onlire band of eavaces at bay. Nay, more than that, they killed three of the redskins and wounded two more, as the In dians afterward admitted. When they found that the plan was to surround them they fell back. Between that point and the cabin the child was killed. The women car ried the body for a few rods, but the close pursuit obliged them to drop it. A new hor ror awaited them as they entered :he cabin. The demons had already been there. The oldest child was dead on the floor, its head almost severed from the body, and the young est had been carried away. Two In dians were still in the house, mak ing preparations to burn it. One made a safe escape, but the other was shot down by Mrs. Ebberts as he cleared the doorstep. There j was no time to reraeinucr tne seaipeu ana mutilated bodies in the forest. The Indians were at the door almost before the chirk body at the step had cease quivering, it was a stout cabin, having more strength than con venience. Logs and roof were not yet sea soned enough to burn, and the single window was protected by a heavy blind. The red skins knew that there only two women in the house, and they dashed at it and swarmed around it as wolves would surround a helpless doe. "Mrs. Hutley was as pale as deuth and her hand trembk-d H hLe loaded the rifl-", but her eves t-hone like lire. nnl she bit her lips till the blood came. I suppose 1 was half crazed, for 1 wanteJ to opea the d'-or and fiirht the whole band." Thus Siiy the bur vivor, whose story of the terrible afiair i as clear us the page of a book. The exeitement was too great for the women to plan a de rr,oo, l.nt lKth understood that the Indians must be beaten olT. Tucrc wn two loop holes in the door and others in t'ue w.Uis. While the savages were masting- agunst the door two of them w-r badly wound ed from within. and soon there after one was killed from a loophole in the wall. Discovering that they had perilous work on hand, the Indians drew oil" and took cover behind logs, stumps and trees, and for an hour they fired at the loopholes, hoping that a chance shot might kill or wound. Their bullets were simply thrown away, and the effort to fire the roof was time spent for nothing. All day long the siege was main tained, and when darkness fell the women re;dized that it was to be the longest night of their lives. A child dead in the cabin, another carried away, a husband and two children dead in the woods, and the little clearing was alive with human devils seeking the blood of the two desperate defenders.

Upon his arrival here he presented a letter of introduction, purporting to be from Governor Powell, recommending "Mr. Baron Harry DeKalb, Esq.," as a wor thy fpntleman, eossessine rare scholastic at- tamments etc. The way in which the letter xrnf addressed caused many to wnonti it was presented to set the bearer down as a fraud: but having an oily tongue, fine conversational powers, and representing that he was a nephew of the 'distinguished Baron DeKalb oi revMitionary lame, ne managed 10 ingra tiate with a latnA rmmber of our citizens, got up classes in French and German, rented two rooms at the iSourbon nouse, tuition money was advanced, and for a while all went smooth. But alas, for the "baron, there ar rived at the same hotel one day, Archibald Williams and son, from Warsaw, Illinois The son recognized the pseudo-baron as a teacher under whom he had been a pupil, and addressed him by the name he had bore in his town. The "baron" protested he was not the man; said it was a case of mistaken iden tity, but the boy insisted, whereupon the "baron" threatened him with arrest if he again addressed him by a name that he did not bear. The boy then brought his father to Iris aid, who, after a close scru tiny, said, as Nathan did to David, "thou art the man." The Messrs. Williams then made known the fact that DeKalb had left their town for having been discovered as the man who had figured at Baton Rouge, Louisiana, as Count Nesselrode, but had to leave that place for trying bis hand at forgery, or en deavoring to increase his exchequer by ob taining money under false pretenses in some manner. Finding that exposure and dis grace were inevitable, DeKalb took advan tage of the darkness and fled, getting a Ger man; friend to hire a buggy, stating that he had accepted a challenge to fight a duel near Frankfort at sunrise next morning, and wanted to be promptly on the spot, or his courage might be called into question. His friend complied with the request, drove to within a few miles of Frankfort, where, un der some pretext DeKalb got out, telling the diiver to wait a few minutes and be would re join him, but he saw no more of the "baron," and, after waiting an hour or two, began to third: there was something wrong, and drove h'-eji to P.irw.

Alex. II. (Stephens. From Rev. Dr. George White's His torical Recollection of Georqin: Hon. Aiexanuer n. Stephens was ijom in the present limits of Taliaferro county, Feb ruary 11, 112, altout two miles and a half from Crawfordville. His grandfather, Alex ander Stephens, emigrated from England about the year 1 oU. lie was in Brad iock army about the time of his celebrated defeat. In the war of the revolution he took an early and active part. In 1789 or '!X. he removed to Georgia, and settled on the plantation now owned by the subiect of this sketch. He died in 1813. Mr. Andrew B. Stephens, the father ot Alexander 11. Stephens, continued to live on the same place until 1826. He was a man of small means, of strict integrity, und un blemished character. Mr. Stephens's mother was Manraret Gner. daughter ol Aaron oner, and sister of Robert Grier, the celebrated al manac maker m Georgia, and a distant rela tive of Mr. Justice Grier, one of the present judges of the supreme court of the United States. Upon a division of Mr. Stephens's property, the portion of each of his children was four hundred and forty-four dollars. The part which fell to his son Alexander, aided by a small legacy from his grandfather, was spent upon his education. At country schools he acquainted himself pretty well with the rides of arithmetic, and obtained some smat tering of geography and English grammar, tte.was but nine months preparing for college. university." i-HP'H?e was passed at the S.t,aq as much honor as any member ot his class. He did not take a diploma, as it then cost two dollars, and the state of his finances did not, in his opinion, justify an outlay of so much money for such an object. Education was what Mr. Stephens wanted that he will ingly paid for; but as for the sheepskin, it ii. .p T .1 a; A 1. . A 1- was a matter oi no consiuerunon to mm. -liter his graduation, he opened a school, and realized money sufficient to pay all he had to borrow to complete his college course. His health, which was always exceedingly deli cate, at that time required relaxation. The early part of 1834 was spent in traveling, and in a few months his health was suffi ciently restored to warrant his application to study, lie took up the law, and was admit ted to the bar in Crawfordville on the twenty- second of July, 1834.' In 1836 he was elected a member of the legislature from the county of Taliaferro. His debut in the house was on the bill to commence the Western and Atlan tic railroad. His speech was an able one. and elicited the highest admiration. He con tinued in the house until 1841, when he was elected to the senate. In 1843 he was a can didate for congress. The election then was by the State at large, under the general tick et system. Mr. Stephens was broueht for ward to fill the vacancy caused by the resig nation of Hon. Mark A. Cooper; and he was elected. After this the State was divided into congressional districts, and Mr. Stephens rep resented the seventh district up to the close of the last congress. Upon a reorganization ot the congressional districts, by the legisla ture of 1851 and '52, Taliaferro county was put into the eight district. This election was witnout any distinct nomination or party con vention; and although he had many com petitors, his majority over all of them was over three thousand vote-. the largest ma jority he ever received. It was an evidence ot undiminished popular confidence in Jl r. Stephens, that while he represented the dis trict, his majority was increased at every elec tion. He has never been a candidate for any oihee without being elected. A CIIAR.VCTF.Il.

Proposed Pllxrimace to Rome. New York Times: The hltaeth anni versarv of the consecration of Pope Pius IX will he celebrated on Monday, the twen ty-first of May. at Rome. The Roman Catho lics throughout tbe world are making prepara tions to commemorate the occasion m a proper manner.

O il'agher died at his residence, 646 F street southwest, on Sunday last, in the eighty-first year of bis age. Mr. Gallagher was the oldest editor in the United States. He commenced his journalistic carear when eighteen years of age, and from a position of one of the most competent and best known editors in his native State he came to Wash ington as assistant editor of the old National Intelligencer. He was also for many years an able and efficient clerk in the employ of the government. President Tyler appointed him to the position of third auditor of the treasury department in 1849. This position he filled for a number of years. He was also for fifteen years a clerk in the quartermaeter general's office. Mr. Gallagher has been an invalid for over two years. He died gre; ly regretted and beloved by a host of friends. i davs. suscei cODtferaing' the returning board came- out, .and particularly since the Presi dentrefusa I to recognize the Packard gov ernment, tog ether with the publication of the probability th. at he would ultimately recog nize the Nicl lolls government, the consols have materially stiffened up.

The ring is supposed to be from eight hun dred thousand to thirteen hundred thDusaJKi short on consols sold at from sixty-two to sixty-five, contracts closing from the eighth to the fifteenth instant. The intention is to make a raid simultaneously in New York and JN ew Orleans by raining a question as to ine validity of the consolidated loan by pleading want ot legality m the legislature which passed the bill, and m the governor who signed it; also to circulate a rumor, upon the authority of Kellogg, Packard & Co., to the effect that it is the intention of the Nicholls government, m the event of its recognition. to repudiate that loan, or at least to allow the interest to default and to contest its validity in the courts, It is also the intention of these conspirators to circulate a report upon the New York stock board that a confederate ring in Louisiana has bought up what are known as the Chattanooga railroad bonds at Bominal rates, and that the first act of the Nicholls legislature will be to fund these bonds, which have been virtually repudiated for some time, with a new preferred State loan, whereby the indebtedness of Louisiana would be increased several millions and the value of the securities already on the market materially depressed, lnis, m bnet, is the history of the conspiracy to which the cipher telegram from UlarK to neuogg aitords a key. Of course, after this publication it will be impossiple for the ring to create the panic they desired on the stock board in New York. This conspiracy has only recently come to the knowledge of the Louisiana Democrats, and they are taking all possible precautions to head it on. It is not the in tention of the Nicholls government or legis lature to interfere with the present financial arrangements of Louisiana, except in so far as it may be necessary to make further and more adennate provision for the payment of the interest on all just and lawful debts of the State.

London World: At a glance it is apparent that aandnngham is no stately palace, where comfort is a secondary consideration to splen dor, where sumptuous suites of apartments bear the chilling impress of being unin habited and umuhabilable; but a veritable English home, designed not for show, but to be lived in every detail eloquent of unos tentatious taste and of refined domesticity. The kevnote to the theme of dulce domum is struck on the very threshold. In the inner wall of the vestibule above the hall-door is cuf n fnVilet. liearino- this inscription in old English characters: " This house was built Alexandra, his wilej in the yfar'I' 1870." The home-savor of Sandringham begins from the very doorstep, for there is no formal entrance-hall. The vestibule is simply part and portion of the great saloon which may be called the tnmily parlor ot the house This noble apartment has a lofty roof of open cakwork: its walls are covered with pictures. and its area is almost encumbered with cosy chairs, occasional tables, pictures on easels. musical instruments, flowers in stands, flowers m pots, flowers in vases, and a thousand and one pretty tntles, eacn one ot which, has an association and a history linked to it. Peer ing out from under the palm-fronds are two miniature cannon, which were a present from the late Emperor Napoleon to the royal chil dren. Above Zichy's charming sketch in water-colors, illustrative of the various phases of home lite at -uidringhani, is a large pic ture ot the birthplace ot the princess: over the fireplace is Borlasc's recent oil-painting of ii . . i :xi. a c ii..,- ine prince anu princess, wiui iwo oi uieir children. The king and Tjueen of Denmark look down from the walls on tlie scene of tlie afternoon: romp of their English grandchil dren. On one of the round tables stands the casket in which the Sandringham tenantry lnclos-id their address ot congratulation on the prince's safe return from India. Above the arch of the vestibule facing the main en trance is fixed the beautiful fierce head of the Chilling-ham bull, shot by the prince m 1872, with Scott s fervid lines undenteath: Tierce on the hunter's qulver'd band He rolls his eyes of swarthy glow. Spurns with black hoof and horn the sand. And tosses high his mane of snow. From the saloon opens the business-room.oc- cupied by General Sir William Knollys. the comptroller of the prince's household, and by Mr. i runcis Knollvs. his royal higncss s pri vate secretary: and in this room it is where the prince transacts his correspondence, gives interviews to other than social visitors, sees his tenants on questions of improvements for hi3 royal highness shirks none of the ob ligations of a landed proprietor and gives his personal instructions to the land-steward, gardener and head-keeper. A plain room, furnished in pliinand business-like manner, mis apartment has for its sole embellishment -i few portraits, among which may be men i ioned those of Admiral lious and Lord K a Pier of Magdala. Oti the right of the vesti- jide, as oie; enters the house, lies the library, :l p;e;t.s nit room iu blue and ligiit oaK, whose slifclv.-s- are filled with books belonging al most exclusively to the departments of history auu tr.tvi-ls. A wnolo compartment is devoted to works ou the Crimean war, another to bKks many of which are hard enough reading on Indn, bota British and native Ine Grerille Memoirs are sandwiched be tween tne XcIfvii Despatches, and the An-- futire of the Euphrates Expedition and the ttarcn It ee.-s Mar are in close proximity to e lie Jii.se of the .utiffiiiefan lower in India suite, is reacneu ine second iiorary, an apart ment which niigut appropriately bear the name of the "Sera pis room,' for it is full of the belongings to ms royal highness during his voyao;ings in tne big troop-ship, and the familiar feathers in gold between ce.s in riding-dress. Immediately at the top ot the stairs a door opens to the right into tne school-room, where .Mr. Dolton's two young pupils spend a stated number ot hours per (layover their lessons; a light, pleasant room, in which flowers and photographs compete for llpow-roofii with school-books and story books. The impulse is to pause here in this sketchy description of the interior of Sandringham hall, lest the going fur ther savor of presumptuous intrusiveuess. Vet it is hard to shun a reference to that beautiful room on the same floor, with its pale talmoa-colored and French-gray walls; its pink and h e hangings round the deep bav of the bow-window; its medley of old china, photographs, wafer-colors, dwarf palms, flower; its thousand and one pretty knick-knacks; its singing-birds; and with the indescribable, yet felt, al hough unseen, presence of delicate and refined womanhood which pervades the whole of the exquisite chamber. Tuis i.s the boudoir of the Princess the room that so grew into the heart of Her 1 loyal lligliries, because of early grate ful memories associated with it, that when Sandringham hall was rebuilt she made it her especial stipulation that it should be re constructed on "tho ancient lines" in the minutest particular. No excuse is needed for an allusion to a room in tlie hiiuti corri dor, because of the deep historical interest which attaches to it. It is difficult, indeed, standing to-day in the big comfortable home like chamber, whither, through the open door, comes tho song of the linnets in the Princess's dressing room; whither, through the open bay-window in the great recess beyond tlie crimson priedieu on the further side of the bed, with its hangings ot blue and wliite to correspond with the tapestry-paper on the walls, is wafted on the breeze the fresh, briny scent of the se?. it is ,i,rt;,...lt troriK- tn realize the scene to which n, e;i'or.f u'ulla pjiiilil hear witness: what time a strontr man, on this same bed, battled for breath in the very straits of the dark val ley, while his dearest kinsfolk were gathered 1 fnr the sad. solemn duty ol bidding i'ni a finnl furewell. while in the corridor hushed retainers wept sore for the imminent untimely fate ot one not less loved man non ored, arid while, ouside iu the snow-slush, griof-stricken laboring folk longed, yet feared, for tidings of their "master. let there in the ceiling above the bed is the mark of the orifice wheuco ir'-H -h hntHe jjuppxjrting "u.i r ounuingly devised by Huntley, vj the aid of which the prince, when on the slow and weary road toward convalescence, was wont to change his recumbent position, or pull himself up into a sitting posture. Listen to the ripple ot child-laughter and the swift patter of child-feet along the corridor! There is a flash of rosy cheeks and dancing curls as three little maids in riding-habits trip dainti ly down the staircase, on their way to an afternoon ride in the park, in the course of which "Slowcoach' will have a wakening up, doubtless, and tho piebald "Euston" get his head quite to his own lik ing three young ladies, the eldest of whom are "out" after a fashion, so far as the San dringham beau-monde is concerned; for at the tenants' ball in December last was there not a radiant vision of a pair of pretty fairies in scarlet sashes, with head-nbbons and dainty bottines to match? Later, as the shadows are falling, there comes across tlie sward from an outlying copse of the park a couple of bright-faced, frank-eyed, hssom framed lads in kilU and hosen of hodden- gray, on whose bare knees there is here and there a scratch.

Grateful to her Xnrse. The San Francisco Chronicle, of January zoin, gives ine ioiiowiner account ot an evi dence of grateful appreciation of services ren dered a sick lady in Oakland, California: "Mrs. Maria Isabel Toomes came to this city from Tehama county, about twelve months since, and placed herself under the care of Dr. Sawyer, and so remained with beneficial effects, until about 6ix months ago, when she changed her place of residence to Oakland. The climate on the east side of the bay ap peared to agree with the lady, and with each day her strength grew, until about ten weeks ago, when a fatal fever was prevalent in Oak land. Mrs. Toomes was attacked by a typhus type of this destructive nialady, and suddenly became quite sick, which was lenrned by a neighbor, Mrs. Isabella Butler, wife of John S. Butler, an Oakland printer. Mrs. Butler's sympathetic heart was moved to do what 3he could for the stranger, who had i:o one with her but a housekeeper and an adopted daugh ter of twenty years, who is ailing and subject to fits. Under Mrs. Butler's ministering the lady rallied materially, but only to announce that it was temporary, and that 6he felt she must soon die. At her request a lawyer was summoned, and her will was drawn up, after which sue commenced to grow worse, and finally died on the fifth instant. The disclos ing of the will revealed the statement that Mrs. Teomes had no heirs nor any known relatives, and, with an undoubted apprecia tion ot the christian-like interest taken in her ncinururini-iti-a i;..i,i. nf,. n4i.,. bequeathed to her all her real and 'pe.r'iai property, with a proviso that her adopted in valid daughter. .Nellie Toomes. should he provided for and maintained durincr her life out oi tne estate, i lie estate is also charged How the Itlch Naffer la Hard Times.

His money gets to be a reproach to him, and he feels as if he'd like to give tho whole of it away in one lump, and try the luxury of being poor ior awhile. But you needn't say any thing alout that, or I'll have a fresh battalion here to-morrow, and half the idlers in town will be writing me letters.

And the poor don't pity him a bit." Nardou'f Sew Comedy. The old saying that when women are on the throne men reign, and that when the men are in power women reign, is so abso lutely true of the present political situation of France that M. Victorien Sardou has founded upon it his new comedy of Dora, which was produced in Paris at the Vaude ville on the night of January 22d, and was at once pronounced to have taken very high rank among its author's works. If the women are not in parliament in France, they are, at any rate, in the coulisses of the parliament, and their dining-rooms are the hot-beds of ail the politiciJ intrigues that agitate this coun try. To use these intrigues as the background of a simple love-picture, requires a dramatic power as strong as that of M. Sardou. An Austrian statesman, the "Baron de Paulnitz," has employed a political agent, the "Baron Van der Krafft," one of those men who make their living by statecraft of an ignoble kind, having a toot in every camp, an e ir in every salon, a hand in every drawer, to collect a legion of women, mostly foreigners, who shall amuse the Austrian court with their perfumed correspondence and graceful tittle tattle, and who shall, moreover, use their feminine influence to draw diplomatic secrets from lovers or admirers. One of the women who fall into the snares of the "baron" is "Mme. de Kio-Zares," the widow of a Span ish officer who died and lef t her a daughter, "Dora," and a valuable cargo of fin arms for her daughter's dowry; und as these firearms have been seized by tlie French government the "baron" very easily gets an ascendency over the widow by promising to use his influence for their re-tit-itioti. only in tenuing to use this luicend-ncy for the ptir- Eose of enrolling the beautiful "Dora"' among is spies.

I LI a. 4 1 . way back to rmgianu on me urst ui laai, December. The task assigned him was the onenino- of a practicable commercial highway from trm.r. ritv tn the Albert and ictoria lakes. Sir Samuel liaker. who preceded mm. had been compelled to fight liis way back from the extreme point reached in the inte rior of Gondokoro, and had left the newly-explored country in a disturbed state. Colonel Gordon has succeeded in pacifying the hostile tribes, ana nas estaonstieu a line of posts. hfty to one hundred miles apart, from Khar toum to Gondokoro, and thence to the Albert Lake. The communication was so far per fected that English papers were received with tolerable regularity in seven weeks from the date of publication. The pathway to the heart of the continent thus secured is by no means perfect. As the Nile approaches the equator, it becomes a morass. Readers of Sir Samuel Baker's narrative of his expedition will remember his irrauhic descrinti utter disappearance of the river in a tmo-lnl mass of grass and reed3. Colonel Gordon had, as did his predecessor, to cut his way through with infinite pains. At. hnffl; hundred and sixty miles from the Albert lake, he encountered a series of rapids, three miles in length. His little steamer was taken to pieces and carried around this obstruction. From this point to the lake no serious diffi culty was met. The commercial value of this route was proved by Colonel Gordon himself, whose trading in ivory, if the dispatch to the London Times be correct, "enabled him to imr all the expenses of his province, including the pay of his men, his odLiais, 1 himseil. and to bring back a surplus to the Egyptian treasury." The country is poor in food nn- plies, the native raising no more than suffices tor their wants. To establish the connecting Ir.

His first wife, a Russian by birth, and married to him in Russia, was evidently a lady of strong mind and determined will. She would not come to this country where he had taken up his quarters, and tells him she had sworn a sol emn oath not to leave Russia; and it was on this ground he procured the divorce. He was evidently determined to have a wife who would travel -with him. At least this may be inferred; for we know that his first wife pos itively refused to do it; and we know that his present wifo, who is a Homeric scholar, has always been along with him during the re cent years of his adventures in Asia Minor, Greece and elsewhere. We must sympa thize with the original Mrs. Schliemann in her misfortune; but yet, considering Dr. Schliemann 's recent achievements, we can not blame him for carrying out his determi nation to be an explorer.

Never theless he looks very unwell, thin and pale.

This is an agreenble and frivolous ending to a story that promised to be melo-dramatic. Its success will prob ably endure, for it is founded on none of the motives of adultery or shameful passion that have lately been in fathion. It belongs to the class of honest stage-work, which is rare praise. Maddox an a Inellt. Baltimore Sun: "An episode in the early life of Mr. Maddox, which is well romemU'red by many citizens of Baltimore, is his partici pation in a fatal duel during the Mexican war.with Lieutenant M'Pht-rson, of Frederick county, Maryland. The account given by gentlemen who were familiar with the de tails of the affair, is substantially as follows: -During the war. ton regiments of regular troops were authorized to be enlisted by the United States government, which were dis banded after its close. One of these was the rI bird dragoons, commanded by Colonel E. G. W. Butler, of Louisiana, with Major Lewis Cass, jr., son of General Cass. One half the regiment, under these officers, was stationed on General Zachary Taylor's line at Mier, twenty-two miles from Camargo, and the other portion, under the lieutenant colonel, was attached to General Scott's com mand at the city of Mexico. Tlie regiment was considered one of the most effective in the service, all the officers being noted for both soldierly bearing and their social stand ing as gentlemen. One of the companies was raised in Maryland, and two of its lieutenants were Maddox and MTherson. Both officers were fast friends, and highly esteemed for their gallantry and preposess ing appearance. At Mier a sudden quarrel occurred between the two wliile spending the evening in the officer's quarters, over an of fense given in a heated controversy.

New York Herald: Concerning three of the prominent ring agents there can no doubt as to tlie precise nature of their relations with the ring, as they are fugitives from justice. One of these three, "Tom" Fields, was an especial jtrotepe and tool of Peter B. Sweeny. In the assem bly and in the senate he was Mr. Sweeny's particular agent, his "Man Friday," and as corporation attorney he served his master faitbi'ully. By so doing he also served him self. He made sixty thousand dollars out ot one set of firemen's claims against the city, and altogether is reputed to have "feathered his nest" to the extent of over two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. He did not con trive to nut it into available shape, however. and he was one of the earliest tools of the ring who fled. A second exile was Mr. Na thaniel Sands. He belonged to tlie Citizens association, and professed to be a reformer. He was, therefore, particularly adapted to the ring, which believed in being served us well as "whitewashed" by "reformers." He was made tax-commissioner, and then went to Europe to raise six hundred thousand dol lars on city bonds, since which time he has not exercised office in New York. The third of these illustrious exiles, Mr Harry Genet, was the particular friend ot Tweed, whom he took for nis model. Like Tweed. Genet en joyed, and for that matter enjoys still in Harlem, great personal popularity. Mr. Gen et was no vulgar ring tool, but a man of large aouity and ambition, a- minor Tweed.

The friends of Maddox, at his instance, then asked the seconds of M'Pherson that the duel should end, but M'Pherson positively refused. A second shot was fired without effect. M' Pherson was excessively angry at his failure in both trials, and blasphemed the weapons used. He demanded not onlv another i-hot, but that they should take tin ircavalry pii-tols. At that time the old "horse pistol," carrying a full ounce ball, had just lieen improved" by the addition of percussion locks, making it a very deadly weapon. Maddox's seconds ob jected positively to this as altogether irregu lar, und for some time would not allow their principal to accept the proposition. Finally, M'Pherson declared that Maddox had taken duelling pistols onlv because no one could use them. Maddox then said, "Lot him have his way," and the weapons were brought. Before the firing Maddox said that he would have to wound MTher son, or there would never be a termination of the affair, but he did not wish to kill him.
