Philadelphia lleeord: Arnontr the (ruesti at the Cent ml station la -a niht was one James Cooley, who, instead of occupying a cell, occupied a teat in the ash-pit, directly in front ot the furnace. With the exception of a sbirt, Jarnesj was dresed in tne t'arb of Adam previous to eating the foi bidden trait. II is inner and neth"r ffarments were strung around the furnace iloor. James said his residence was in Camden. Further than th s he laid nothing but "excuse me," and this very ineoherent'y. James bad been ecjoy ing himself in tho ci'y, and was returning to hit native heath, but, on react i ig tun wharf of the Baltimore steamers at the foot i f CaestiiUt htreet, be gyrat'd too heavily in the direction of the D-laware, and in an in stant be was struggling in the water. Mi chael Manning, a watchman in the employ of the company, heard the spliub, and, seiz ing a boat-hook, ru-died to the spot, and bid ding the drowning man take bold of it, kept him above the water until assistance came to him, when the drenched Jerseyman was hauled out and taken to the CVntral station. Thin i tho thirteenth trophy tor the faith ful watchman, who, in sixteen yeais of ser vice, has saved thirteen lives trom death by drov70iog. "Without counting my own boy, a 1d six yeara of age," added ASicbael, "who caru down hpre to stop all night with me. I don't count him." "I remember a case that happened about five years ago, when the women used to wer large hoop-skirts. A woman came down Chestnut ktrei t and ia-t jumped right into the water. I ru-bed to tho wharf log and reached a boat-hook to her and tJd her to grab hold of it, but, lx the powers, she would not do it. 'F.f you don't tak hould the hock I'll bate you over the hid wid it,' gays I, to frighten her, and fhe took hold of it. Then I got down on to a raft, hollering for help all the time, and pulled her near enough to mo to ret hold of her, when she caught me rist in hr teeth and held me so tight I could't get away. By this time an tfficer got there, and he hit her a rx It in the jaw, which made her Pt go of her hold. She said she wanted to be let alone; that ube waa going to drown herself. Git out of thin, you blackguard,' nays I, 'you are not going to drown yourself here, and we pulled her out and the officers took her oil'. "Yes, ir; it's as truo as I'm telling you; the man laxt niht makfri thirteen I've saved from drowning, and I don't count me own boy, either," conclu-lil M'chael. THE JSOTilMENTOF HOUSES. Kerne atercattnc llaoTerIa Hade by Sleann f he InBtantancoua Fkato jrupli. San Francisco Call: "Eu-tcrn horsemen are Ukinit mere interest in the instantaneous photttgraplia of Muy bridge than is the case with the people bore. Many inquiries and orders are received, and when the present are supplemented by those which it is in tended to take, the question of action will be defiaitely settled. Ex-Governor Stanford has authorize Mr. Muytridge to go on with the experiments, though the C06t will exceed three thou-and dollar, tho only return from which will be the satiblaction ot clearing up tt which has hitherto Ixx-n little under stood. The whole expc tise of tho series will be upward of six thout-and dol.ara, but al though it .VM entirely n one man, the ad vantages wil" I commnsuiatB with the ex pense. The inistwn is to tuks pictures of men and different auicjala besides horses, so that a critical corapa.V?B can be instituted. The most puzzling so f the action ot the race-horse, and the rrpresentationa of Sallie Gardner, whose runn.l? ft th rata of a mile in one-forty r ave HicitMl comments of all who have studied it. Those who have been engaged for many years in trainiiX race horses are unwilling to admit that they' bad not the slightest knowledge ot tbe actuiCJ movements of horses, and heucd are pioae to disparage the pictures. To deny their au thenticity after witnetsing tbe manner of tak in if them, or after that method had been explained, is an evidence of ignorance and obstinacy which is difficult to account tor. Ladies have doubted tbe correctness of the mirror which reflected a faca once beautiful, but which betrayed the marks of Father Time, and the hesitancy with which the ver dict of the camera is received may arise from the same feeling. A few days ago some expe riments wpre undertaken to prove whether the tootmarks on the ground would corrobor ate the positions given in the picture. A horse was (run for a sixteenth of a mile on a track where tbe impriots could be distinctly ieCi the striJes measured, and tbe di.--U.nce between, the foot-prints carefully noted. Horsemen ba all agreed that tbe tride was liom where tho 'leading' fore-fot lelt th" ground until wheie it fi st struck sigain. Toe hoisa se lected made a sti.Vte of twenty one fort ten inches, which neai'.'T corresponds with that of Saliie Gardner, as fc'iowu by the pho tograph. From tbe point or ioot the lead ing fore-foot to where the hinu -foot struck was eight teet and one inch, the pOit:on of the next hind-foot being tl rje feet an ten inches in advance ot that, and the fore-loot-five teet, with a space of lour feet and eleven inches between the marks of the fore-feet which complete tbe stride. The longest space is when the body is hurled through the sur, for the greatest portion of which the j-ett and legs are Joubled up, and are twelve inched 'rom tno ground. The spaces in the u -pbs are. approximately, seven feet. three feet "'i0' '"cS 'i fet nine and tour difference from the mauure- foet six. mente on the h !" different stride; S JaIU0 e;jr, ln one, which covered tenty-one leet. the dis tant we,e seven feet mcfa" three imhes. aix feet th. onr feet four inches. Tne third is iae to the next in length to the one wb.ii. air. is when one hind-foot and one froL J on the ground at the same time, TiJ greater distance which Sallie Ga ra covered is owing to her being lon1' in the body than the Lo?e wit,, which the experiments were made. There cannot be a question but that the teachings of these instantaneous pictun'8 will U of great value in the training of horses, sug gesting methods to obviate dillk.-ultit's which have heretofore been insuperably con.iected with training. 'Breaking down' the rap turing of the sheathing ot the tendon, in ex treme cases the fibres being torn apart. The back tendon, or suspensory ligament, is usually the seat of this difficulty, and the photograph shows plainly the cause. In one position which the inat'.nment records tbe l weight is entirely sustained on one fore-leg, which it has to supptrt while the body is car ried torward tuliy five feet before it is re lieved by the body being thrown in the air. Just before leaving the ground, a perpendicu lar froin tho toe of the foot will strike back of the saddle; and thus, in ad lition to the weight of the bore and the riiler, there is the leverage of all tho weight which is for ward of that perpendicular line, excetptiu so much of it as is balanced by tbe parts which are behind the perpendicu lar. This is so little in comparison to the chest, shoulders, neck and bead, that tbe strain on the tendons and ligaments must he far beyond tbe mere support of tho whole weight. Though the hind ler re ceives the first shock from tbe recovery from the bound (and this is a point which the photographs establish), there is nothing lik tb (train upon that that there is on the fr.mt ler. At ti e moment of impact it is thrust wall forward, so that it is under the rider, but as it propels tbe body forward the center tA gravity changes, and, wer it not that the other hind-foot comes to the relief U-fcre tho fore-foot touches, the animal would not i-tand training at all, the fore-legs and feet bt-inr sure to give way. It has long been a mcoted question whether the strain on the lunbs ot a race-horse or a trotter was the greatest. It was evident to those who gave much tliought to the subject that tbe legs of race-horses were fur more arduously tried, but the c in verse bad many advocates. Ihis is fettled by these pictures as definitely s that twice two are tour. There are two bounds n the ntride of a t: otter, and the bind and front foet are called into the euppcrt of the body so nearly at the same time that it is practic ally simultaneous, and thus two perform the work of one. There in a very singular featur. in the ttride of the race-horae, which would never have been dicC'iv-red witbout the aid of the photograph. Tno pictures were tak;n with tbe instruments twenty-seven inches apart, eo that the body was noved that distance fur eve'y iucces-ive representation. Notwith standing tbe advancing of the body.the hind foot is further luck in So. 8 (ban it is in No. 7. In the last picture it has jist left tne ground, and tbe caue of the retrogression is apparent. When the last vigorous eifjrt is made to send the annu.il torward, the for.t has a more rapid motion forward than the rate of speed to advance, and it has also to be elevated in order to be thrust far erougb torward to take its place in tbe stride. When the foot is on the grouud the t astern is bent so that the ankle touches, but as it leavf s ;t is straightened, which throws the foot that much lurther back. The position given in the picture is corroborated, but without the cue which it gave no one would have antici pated such aa apparently retrograde move ment. These pictures completely upset the artist's idea of Rpeed, and when the series is finished they will afford more knowledge of action than a man could have discovered if he were to devote every day of his life to the study."

UlsronraclnaT Flgnrea In llelatlon to Its .Efficiency in Filling the Vtra-lula Treasury, Eew York Herald Richmond telegram: " The returns of the Motfet system of liquor taxation, embracing the whole State and covering the first fiscal year, have just been made public. They show that the registers and licenses combined only produce eighty three thousand MX hundred and sixty-nine dollars more than the old Ky?tetu, a great disappointment. It wa9 claimed for the regisiers that they woald yield at least s i hundred thousand dollars per annum, in many- localities public opinion has been against the law, and in consequence little real earnest effort has been made to enforce it. Dealers have in many instances neglected to ring the bell upon the sale of drinks, and have not been reported because their custom ers regarded the law as oppressive, inquisito rial and unjust. In Richmond, where the court was certainly active enough in prose cutions, it is conceded that only about half of the drinks ere now registered for taxation that used to be when the regicter was first introduced. This is more especially tbe case with small groggeries. Now, as some offset ti these discouraging symptoms, it should be tii that tbe law is susceptiole of amend ment that will increase its efficiency; and that Mofi'dt has a much better register than the one now in use, but as the liquor dealers are clamorous for a repeal of toe law, and will undertake to prepare a bill that will raise more money by the simple license system, it is doubtful if the Motfet plan will be much longer contirud. Dr. Moifjt is a leader of the readjusters. He is just now in an awk ward position. He would like to e:e his sys tem a success, but it is the policy of his party not to put money into the State treasury. Between these conflicting' interests he is thought to waver; and, in the meantime, the enemies of the bell-punch, relying upon the year's results to prove it a failure, are urgently demanding its repeal." T?e Apache na a Horse Thief. An excharge says: "The passion of a contemporaneous American savage for steal ing is irrepressible. In order for his indulg ence he will risk his life, aud even take lare odda against it, almost any time. The re cent teat of an Apache Indian in Ari zona illustrates this. An American had a ranche ou which four bundreu fine cuttle be longing ti a fort near by, were nightly kept. To seeni- ihem against the Apaches he had built a block-house, and adj jining it a court yard and c orral, surrounded by an adobe wall. Several vain attempts had been made by the Indians to capture the heard while grazing two or three miles from the block-house, but (he vigilant herdsmen had driven the cattle i!i"to the corral be fo.-e they could bo ctm pedetf. One btormy night, however, a solitary Apache, nnarnied and covered only with, a blanket, climbed over the wall, crouched in a corner and waited for the day. Boon after dawn eigbt herdsmen, mounted and armed to the teeth, were ready to protect the cattle. As these panned out of the gate the savage sprang up, vaulttj on the nearest horse, clutched his mane with one hand, and waving his red blanket with the other, yelled like a demon. The horse plunged into the midat ot the herd, which, greatly terrified, ti-.'d pell n-eil, and the Apache, throwing himself on one side cf U:e rushing animal, rapidly disappeared from view. Nothiug could have Btopped tbe wildly fpeedn cat tle. Tbe herdsmen fired at the Indian, but only wounded and killed some of the herd, abotit which two bands of Apaches, darting out from cposjte sides ot the valley, soon closed and drove o,f. irrecoverably, every hoof. This feat will add aasthey feather to the Apache's head, and furnish a theme for an fc.boriginal epic." A Box's Winnptse Cat to Have bis Life. Cincinnati Enquirer: "On Christmas nigbt a young lad named Henry Drinker, who re sides at tho corner of Central avenue and Water street, while eating hickory-nuts, shallowed a piece of the shell of one about ths size of a dime, which lodged in his throat, and res sted all attempts to remove it by coughing or otherwise. He did not experi ence much inconvenience from it, however, aud went to bed. About three o'clock in tbe morning ha wofce up choking and deathly sick, and rapidly fcve w worse, finally becoming almost incapable of btbaLhjng. His fatep father, air. John Schwarte, accompanied by his brother, started out in search of a doctor; Lut, though at that time it was but halt-past thrbe o'clock, it was nine o'clock before tliey could get ona t come to the house. They called on .t Lev, z dozen physicians, all of whom, on one pretends or another, re fused to come to b3 the bvv, Ihonu they told them he was dying. Finally Dr. Davis came, but on seeing tbe lid, the parents say, .old them be waa too tar gone to do him any Cod. He gave them a prescription, how eev, for an emetic, which he told them to adirurKaUi', and left, promising to return at ooa. in ths Mieantime another messenger, wt had been dispatched for a physician, re tnrnfc'f. with Drs. awsod nd M.'.Mechan, and the .'atter, on seeing tho boy's condition, determine t'5 resort t' a sureical operation to save his life.

Special to tbe Cincinnati Enquirer.) Washington-, DocemU-r 26. The com mittee appointed under Blaine's resolution has adjourned to meet at the call of the chair man, which means until after the reasem bling ot congress in January, when they hope to have a fund to put the machinery in mo tion and keep it going. The committee de voted this morning's session to an examina tion of the law mailing an appropriation for the I'otter committee, and unanimously in d irsed the correctness of the first comptroller's dt-cision, tbat that tund could not be used for any purpose other than to examine into al leged frauds in tbe Presidential election. It was first decided to ask tor a direct appropri ation of thirty thousand dollars vhen congress reassc?mbles, but that section was subse quently reconsidered, and it was then agreed to ask consent to apply twenty thousand dol lars heretofore appropriated to the purposes ot this committee. In response to an inquiry from the chairman, 11 r. Bayard said he had no idea that any Democrat in the senate would oppose an appropriation. He cer tainly t-hould advise all his friends to vote for it, and ho did not believe members of the house would throw any obstacle in the way. Teller's question implied a fear that Demo cratic opposition would prevent their getting the necessary funds. AS TO RESUMPTION. Secrstary Sherman and Treasurer Gilfillan are back from New Yoik, whither they went to complete the financial arrangements for tbe resumption of specie payments at tho New lork sub treasury on and a ter January 1st. anil mayhap to have a quiet ralk with tbe First national bank folks. U. tii seem to teet the utmost confidence ct huceess in the attempt to resume, and ta'k more cotfidently than they did before they wint away. If redemption at New Yoik suall prove as successful as is expected, and if tbe government does not find itself obliged to Ujbt a speculative ttfjrt to "earner" go'd, it is the intention ot the secretary, as soon after the first as be considers it fate, to autnorize the redemption of notes at the various sub-treasuries throughout the country, and not confioe it to the sub-treasury at New York. This wou!d require an extra appro priation, to provide against the possible ne cessity for transporting coin from this city to the several sub-treasuties. although the sec retary believes that each sub-treasury will receive a sufficient amount of coin in tbe or dinary course of business to redeem all the notes which will bo presented for redemp tion. A SURPRISING THING. To the surprise ot the treasury officials, the appreciation of tbe greenback to gold has been followed by an increased demand for the standard silver dolars. Two weeks ago, if the department received in any one day orders aggregating ten thousand dollars, it was considered an unusually good day, but the demand has steadily increased, end to day, although the department closed at noon, and only one mail was opened, orders fcr more than tbirfy thousand of the standard silver doMacs were received in anticipation cf resumption. Treasurer Gilfillan has directed all assistant-treasurers to discontinue special coin accounts after January 1st. RADICAL ELECTION BULLDOZEH6. As at present advised, the committee on appropriations will not recommend any ap propriation which will enable the department of justice to employ marshal or deputy-marshals at elections in future. The attorney-general claims authority to employ these officers under that clause of the appropriation bill which raikes aa apfr;pna!ion to defray ex penses which may be incurred in the enforce ment of the act to enforce the rights of citizens of the United States to vote in the several State?. When this clause was put in the sundry civil bill at the last session Mr. Southard and others endeavored to have it so amended and gtiaided as to prohibit the expenditure of any money for the services of the supervisors and marshals. In the debate that took place on June 13th, it was shown that in past years these officers had been ap pointed for partisan services only, and it was predicted that they would be used for party purposes in the future; and now, when it was proposed to ascertain just how this money was expended at the last election, the Repub licans invariably ol jeet. While the appro priation committee will recommend the ap propriation of money fcr legitimate use in enforcing the act referred to above, they will prohibit the expenditure of any part of the money for the employment of supervisors and marshals. Tniy will thus prevent interfer ence in elections through the instrumentality of these officers. BEAUTIFUL HARMONY. A member of the house c inference commit tee on the diplomatic appropriation bill, be ing asked to day whether there would beany serious contest b-tween the two houses on questions of salaries, replied that he thought not. While the house was in earnest in re ducing the salaries of our representatives abroad, and thought the amounts recom mended by them ample, they would not in sist to the extent of jeopardizing tbe bill, especially a.s the senate had not proposed any increase, Members of the house are not anxious for an extra session of congress; hence, while they will go on and make such reductions in all appropriation? as they think proper, they will not insist on them so far as to make an extra session necessary. They will not, however, submit to an increase of expenditures, and if ihe senate chooses to in crease them and insist upot, them, tbat body must tate the re? porsibility of an extra ses sion, if one is m?.-Je necessary.

Liverpool spots yesterday were reported by the cable advanced l,d; arrival opened at l-32d decline, but closed strong. K11 urws to New York were weaker, arid one to eight polrns lower. Galves ton was strong and 13 higher. In our iuaiket the demand was active and stmng, but business was light, owing to factors who were holding at i.r?Uc aoove t he II ures on the board, tales weie 2100 bales, and quotations were revised and advanced ise on all grades as sta ed billow. The New Yoik Bulletin, of Wednesday last, says: "Indeed th" manner and form of the operatloi.s and the general expiession of views among the trade make Ic oifli :ult to t vercoine the Idea that the apparent avantag to the selling liiteres s Is due largely to manipulation both here and abroad, and tuat lew buyers are tak ing boid of cotton ou a belief that It merits Invest ment lor more than temporary turns. The tttte of trade with the consuin ng points, fcoih heie ar-d abroad, fall to make any improvement, and actual co Ion la about as dull as ever, while the cur rent receipt and the prospect for what ts to come show no basts ror a reduced estimate of tbe probable supply. The accounts from Llveipnol, as received to-day through publ'C sources, were construed as less epresslt-u bat private sources continue to con tribute warnings agaiui-t afcepMug general open news in too favorable a light."
