Monopolies are not bought and aold in this way in the United 8 ate., for which we have reason to be thank ful, but let it not therefore be suppled that we are altogether free from this kind of in justice. The monopoly chartered by congrta. is a monopoly against foreign competition. Suppose some "ring" wanted to sell all the wine that is drunk in the United gtes, or as nearly all as can be ' They apply to congress and: say they can sell M good a bottle of wine for two dollars as can be brought from Korope for one dollar and a quarter, if congress will tax foreign wines a dollar and a half a bottle, and that their wine will be made of California and other native grapes. When the monopoly is granted it is not called monopoly but "protection," that i. the difference for in Turkey It is called the monopoly it is bat the money paid for the privilege dot not go into the national treasury but into the pockets of the individ uals who, by bribery and such trickery as they found suitable, secured the passage of the measure through congress. The result is the same here as in Turkey.the wine consumer mast drink what the monopolist supply, and pay what they charge. In course of time the people get tired of this way of plundering, and they ask for the privilege to be stopped, so that they may get a good article at a fair price. Then the monopolism starta up fierce and flaming and demands, as an act of justice from bis oouatry that he .ball not be inter fered with, "Here," he .ay., "I have plant ed vineyards, raised building., laid in a stock of bottles, and am employing army of laborers, and to take away mv protection would be orjust to me. the vineyards I have stocked will per Ub, the building! I have raised, drop into ruin, and the laborers I employ will be left ' aeHDiuiH. rim w i e.i w. 4k follows the Turkish monopoly syshen when . introduced into the United States. That the citisen. are drinking poor wine and paying a high price for it, is nothing; that labor which could be employed profitably . is producing wine at two dollar, which can readily be bought at one dollar and a quarter, is noth log. Not the interests of the national com merce, but the fortune of the individual mo Bopolists are to be the policy of a great peo ple, and govern the votes of their represen tative. All this, too, is got wiihout any thing of the payment for it which the Turks exact when they do the same thing.- It is probable that some reader, will be staggered at fiodirg such a point of close resemblance between the tree United States and the des potio tyranny of Turkey. Does it really ex utf A huudred proofs could be given, let as take a prominent one.- Three years asro it be came obviously the interest of this country to entsr iato close friendly relation with the Sandwich islands, and a treaty was made with tbem which, among other things, al lowed them to send tteir sugar and rice to this country on the payment of a reasonable revenue duty. Many readers will remember how monopolist sugar and rioe grower bowled out ccmplaint against the measure. Those branches in this country would be de stroyed; the rice fields would beat m 3 noisome swamps; the sugar estate dreary deserts, and then the laborers! It is wonderful how thoughtful monopolists are about their work people only when they pay them; then the rule is, "little miney and no pity." The measure was passed, however, and a week or two ago the San Francisco Herald had the following paragraph: "The Hawaiian trade is developing in a wonderful degree. The arrivals of sugar are large, while the exports during May include six cargoes, and at date four more vessels are on the berth, exclusive of the American G rl, which has cleared with thirty-five thousand dollar, value." Ves sels have cargoes, sailor, have em ployment, merchant have stocks, a great trade is carried on, gOud profit are made and where ia the ruin, the swamp, the deterts, the starving wotkingmen, "the wreck of matter and the crush ot worlds?" The noe circulars and the sugar trade news papers are rtjoioing over prosperity and sat istactory price", that is where the ruin is. So creams the quinine maker, the salt boiler, the paper manufacturer ruin! rain! ruin! nnless the people are wronged by monopoly. It is time a sensible and a rational people despised these interested cries and did jus bo to themselves and to the commerce ot their country. ' WHEAT qCKha'tiNtt, caK&TMO AkU TMIaVIHtt. Wheat has got into bad company this year. Last season it brought in a large amount of money, filled the treasury with gold in fact, and this year the slave of "the root of all evil" gave their souls to it, and those souls are the meanest refuse and vilest loathsomeness oa the earth. From the opening of the wheat season there bave been several specimens of what those operator can do who can get fat off a famine and bee me jolly where the hun gry and anted are dropping into the grave. The lit'.le playful trick of the sportive wheat dealer, are not yet over by any means. For this week shipment cargoes are engaged at the four principal eastern port for seventy fita vessels for wheat. . This ia said to bs a " ball-clique " operation, and to be a portion of nice little arrangement among the knowing one by which the -"shorU" will be cornered on their Jane op tion. There ha been a "scare" at the New York produce exebaag on the subject; the cltq je-holder of wheat refuse to sell unless for export; they have also refused to settle "hort" contracts at anywhere about present rate. All this betoken a Jane "quers," i't opening pressure is early looked for, and the "insiders" are warm in their self-gratu-latioa. The amoant of contract i. under stood to be unusually lare, so that we may look fjr news about wheat price about these times. Toe Chicago Tribute con firms the expectation, of a iqueti . The last wetk's movement of grain there was unprecedented two and a quarter mil lioa bushels new spring wheat; also about twioe as much corn as during May of last year. The receipt of last week alone was above four million bushel. The controlling parties ia the wheat deal are believed to be the owners of nearly alt the surplus No. 2 spring wheat in the country. Ia Chicago the question is, will there be a Jane sqaeese, or will the market be broke by the wheat being delivered? These detail show something of the operations that are going oa now for the cost of persoLS who are engaged ia the wheat market, and who absorb and develop the spirit that animates it. Ia Baltimore, for a full year past, there bave been most wonder ful disappearance of large quantities ot wheat spirit seunees could show nothing . f qua! to them. The operations cover values to the amount of from twenty-five to filly five thousand dollars. The shippers at the pert were charged with shortage of grain, accusation coming frcm all quarters to wbv2- stupa had nailed.

How could the astonishing feat be performed? The explanation gives a lofty idea of the honor, uprightness and hon esty of the folks connected with the wheat trade. A Baltimore telegram thus tell, the story: "Although during the loading of a vessel by one of the elevators the tally of ev ery bushel of grain was kept as it passed from the barge into the elevator and then over into the ship, it was discovered that, by contrivance, large Quantities of the grain, after it was measured, instead of passing through the chute into the vessel, slipped down into the bottom of the elevator.

' The New York Herald, in a lenothy sketch of the art's', aad dramatist, tells ns that John Brougham was bo-n ia the city ot Dub lin, Ireland, May 9. 1810. being a pes hum ous child. Tbe eldwr Brougham left a fine landed estate in Ireland, which wes adorned by all the elegant appurtenance which eouH render it attractive to the "possessor. But, before tbe infant heir reached an age to ai preciate the importance and value of his property, the agent employed by the widow proved treacherocs to bis trust, and absconded after cheating her and her sou out of the irreater part of their state. Fortunately there remained sufficient to enable the widow to live well and give her son au excellent education. - John's school day were passed at . the preparatory collegiate school of Rev. Dean Hamilton, in the pretty little town ot Tnm, County Meath. Dean Hamilton wss a sedulous teacher, ' and bis pupil being unusually apt the founda tion f the future actor's scholarly education waa laid with loving care. Naturally bright, young Br.mgham made such rapid progress in bis studies that he passed his examination with eclat at a very early age. Immediately oa ! tic Hammond's scbool BroOKham entered Trinity college, Dublin. Among his college mate. Brougham found L-ver, and some of tbe pranks described in Harry Lorrequer may safely be set down to John, who, though ft studious lad, was always up to some mischief. Those who have seen Brougham in his prime can easily imagine him taking aa active part in the deviltry that was constantly going on in tbe corridors of old Trinity. . Graduating with honor and rank. Brougham left the college with high hopes and expectations. 8TABTS IN uyjg AS A SUHQKON. Finding him unsettled as to his future course, the friends of the family insisted that John should enter one of tbe liberal profes sions, and he selected tbe vocation of a sur geon. ' That question settled, Brougham went al his studies with all bis accustomed impetuosity. Bat the dry details of practical investigation proved too much for evet his ardor, so, after "walking" the wards of the celebrated Peter street hospital for a period of six months, he abandoned the scalpel and the dissecting knife forever. Dublin society was at that time very gay, and tbe young man found, himself surrounded by hosts of thoughtless companions, wbo were only too willing to asBist in raining him. This career of dissipation con Id only have one ending, and Brougham awoke one morning to find all bis money and his wild friends gone together. The money lenders tqoetzed their victim dry, and he was penniless. Aa bis fond mother h id only her j rinture left to live upon, young Brougham applied to his maternal uncle for assistance. This relative being high in the confidence of the British cabinet, secured for his nephew . an aopointment as treas ury clerk. Oerjiyed at this good fortune Brougham started for London with a light heart and a lighter purse, only to find himself six hours toa late, for while be was enduring the rough passage of the Irish g'a a . idden change in the ministry had taken place and h s trecs iry appointment was worthless. . In this cr sis, rather than be de pendent on the chilling bounty of reluctant friends, he determined to enter the ist India company service, and did actually v sit the office for the purpes) of enlis'ment. His youth and manner induced a kind old official not only to dissuade him from taking such a ruinous s'ep, bat to volunteer and pn si upon him tbe loan of a sum of money. Finding bimself compelled to earn a living somehow he adopted all sorts of novel expedient to keep the wolf from the door. One ot the most romantic was his becoming dr. wing master (tor which h;s knowledge of and fa cility in the art well qualified him), where he contrived to fall into flirtation and love with two of hi fair pupils at once, and, on their comparing notes and palling caps which disclosed the anair to tbe seniois received his diemits! long before the arrival of auar ter-day. FX BRCOMES AM ACTOB, Matter had now become desecrate with the young man, and his fortune, seemed to bave fallen to the very lowest ebb. Too Droud to appeal to his mother, and determined to make his own way in the world. Brougham finally decided to adopt the stage as a oro- fession. He had always betraved a fondness tor pnva e theatricals, and being a good sing er, thoroughly educated in music, and pos seseing a handsome presence, he hoped, through diligence and hard work, to win suoceaa as an actor. . This was in tbe vear 1330, and Brougham had just entered bis twenty brat year. Ibrouub a Mr. Jones, wbo was a writer on tbe London Dress, he obtained an introduction to the manager of a little weater in lottembam Uourtroad, a concern that had ruined many a lessee, but which afforded a very acceptable field for an aspirant to dramatic fame, wbo, of coursfit would nave to mount tbe ladder from the lowest round and do without salary. The manager was known as John Kmble Chap man, and baa just married a sister of Mrs. Cnarles K-an, then known as Miss Eden Tree. He was also an attache of the London Sunday Times. Mr. Chapman accepted young Brougham as an addition to his com pany, and aa tbpy were about to produce a new play, called lorn arid Jerry, the new comer found, himself called upon to play a variety of characters. In after life Mr. BfOUtfK&m aaed tn nl.t y ii.li arewtnlec 111 at he appeared in tbe piece as a countryman, a costerminger, a .weep, a siilor, a jjcWey, a gentleman and a. a beggar tbe last two character, representing his own condition. , It was a rough school but it gave the young actor confidence in his own powers, and be gained also a good knowledge of stage busi ness, so indispensable to success on the boards. EARLY SUCCESS AND PROMOTION. So well did he get on that durinir tbe next season be was given a position in Mme. Yes tris's company at ber theater, the Olymmc, where be remained as utility man until 1832, wben he j ined tbe Haj market, making a most successful first appearance. For the next eight years Brougham played a round ot engagements, and made so many friends by his refined manner, and geniality that be was enabled to assume the lesseeship ot the Lyceum theater, London. This was the be ginning ot many attempts at theatrical man agement, for Brougham was always itching to bold tbe reins, and, as in all bis ventures in that line, proved unprofitable, for he was too generous by nature to be successful as the director of a theater. Never knowing the value ot money, he invariably found tbe balance on the wrong side ct the sheet. In fact, he was so true an artist tb.it be sefra-d and felt cut of place in the business t liice. About the time he essoined the management of the Lyceum Mr. Brougham married, se lecting as hu helpmate Mrs. Copleaon Hjdgea. The lady began her career as a singer, and. strangely enough, she made her fiist bow before the footlights at the old Tottenhbm theater during tbe time time her future hus band was a member cf the company. At that time she was a Mis. Annette Nelson, and bad been a pupil at tbe Royal academy, London, where .he gained the reputation of being a very prom ising songstress. The meeting between Mr. Brougham and Miss Nelson happened in thia wise. A gentleman of some celebrity among tbe historians and newspaper men oi London, and well known by the soubriquet of "Gentleman George." was about to have a benefit, and he had secured a powerful ar ray ot volunteer talent to aid ia the enter tainments ot the ev.ntng. Among the per formers assembled for the rehearsal of The Marriage of Figaro waa a lady of much beauty, with fine eyes, dark, luxuriant hair, and a lorm fitted to inspire a painter with ex static "visions ot Hebe, Ariadnes, and a va riety of other beautiful and bewitching crea tures. The lady in question, besides being young, fair com pit xioned and graceful, had a sweet voice aad was accounted a most pleas mg singer. She was there in her place in that little Tottenham street theater a place oooe frequently honored by the presence of George the Third, his queen, and their fifteen children, who went there to listen to sacred music in the days of its concert-room glory to practice the music of tbe part of "Cber nbino," th9 page, in The Marriage of Fi garo, in the role in which she was to appear on that evening. This waa Miss Nelson, and she found in the cast a young, fun-loving gentleman, who seemed fond of making harm less love to every pretty girl in the company. From that night their paths diverged, for the lady mnrntd soon after and cms to the Uoited States playing at Caldwell's theater. N-w Orleans; the old Chestnut street theater, ' t niladelpLia, and at tbe oil Park, in this, city, under the name ot Mrs. Hodge. He taring to England a widow with a young son, who afterward became aa actor, she met Mr. Brougham and became hi wile. A Mrs. Brougham her name became associated with a line of characters which she rendered exceedingly well. To "Lady Franklin" in Balwer'a play of Money she gave all the archness, mock solemnity and charming vi vacity blended by the author in the character of the prettv widow. She played "Susan Nipper" at Burton's theater in 1849 in ber husband's dramatized version of Bombey and Son, and the critic, of the day gave her praise for a natural and most captivating interpre tation of D ckens's impulsive hut generous and noble "household heart." Mrs. Broug ham'. "Mr.. Candour" was also a noteworthy performance. When Dickens' David Cop perfitld was produced at Barton's Chamber street theater in this city Mrs. Brougham en acted the part of the faithfal nurse of the little "Davy" the good, the pjttient "Peg gotty" tbe woman with the uncivilized name and loquacious lover. Mrs. Brougham played "Peggotty" with a heartiness and quiet genuine bumor pleasant to behold; and ber merry laugh wben she received the an nouncement from her peisistent and trouble some admirer that "Barkis" was "willin'," lead the listener to suppose that "Peggotty" herself was really there, and that a large quantity of buttons might be found in her immediate vicinity. - BROUGHAM e LAST STARRING TOUR. The old gentleman was turning three-score and seven when he made his last journey through the country as a star. Will E. Chap man was tbe manager of the company, and the plan was that Brougham should play in all of his own pieces that were at all adapted to the circumstances of the journey, the ca pacity of the company and the old actor' advanced years. Playini with Fire, Good Bye, dramatization ot Bboda Broughton' novel. Good Bye, Sweetheart, and hi adapt ation ot the familiar larce. The Serious Fam ily, were tbe particular attractions in tbe repertoire. The fortune of the company were launched on troubled waters. Leaving tbe city in September, 1877, Mr. Brougham played first in Troy. After the last perform ance tome of the members of the company, coming into the dressing-room, found the old pentiemau stretched upon the fl rot senseless. He had been attacked by vertigo, and had fainted. It was resolved that he should take a rest, and the company was laid up in ordi nary at Albany. Mr. Brougham came home a week later and reported himself ready for the road. He played with great success and much of his old time fire and vigor in several of the cities in central New York. Ooe night in Auburn the eurtain tell at tbe end of the first act of Playing teith Fire, but Mr. Brougham, wbo was on tbe stage, did not move. Mr. Chapman came up and spoke to him. "I bave a great pain in my left leg and foot," said the old man; "give me a chair." They brought him a chair, and when he was seated he was unable to rise. Tne stage was set with a bux scene that is, inclosed and it was necessary to take it down in order to wheel Mr. Brougham off. That was the beginning of tbe illness that has followed h'"m with painful persist ence until now. Tne trouble v. as acute rheumatism. Mr. Chapman went on himself, at Mr. Brougham's solicitation, and played the part that night. Tbe old gentleman, anxious that the audience should not be dis appointed, sat in the wings, and, although suffering excruciating agony, prompted the act. From that time out the tour of his com pany was an unbroken chain of misfortune. He expected and hoped from day to day to be able to appear each night, but sunset in variably found him stretched upon a bed ot pain. For sev ral week. thi. continued. One night in Columbus he played, suffering in tensely the while, bat acting so well that he was called and recalled, and finally mde a speech. It was one of his wittiest efforts, and convulsed the house with laughter. He spoke of the rumor of his bad health and of a more serious rumor that had obtained temporary credence that he had died in Wheeling. He said : "I am not dead. I feel no premonitory symptoms of an early demise, in fact I was never so well in my life." He bowed himself off the stage and fainted in Mr. Chapman s arm. While he spoke the pain was racking him to the very extremity of bis fortitude to bear it. Finally, in Cleveland a few days after tbe Columbus ep sjde, he 'was forced to give over his attempt! to act and travel. Ihe company was sent home and the veteran re turned to New York. Tbe venture had cost him much. He bad Bunk a little nest egg be had put aside for a rainy day, and to add to which he had undertaken tbe tour. Fol lowing his return to New York came the beneht which gave evidence of the high es teem in which the favorite actor was held. He afterward played at Wallack's in one or two pieces that had brief runs, and was one of tbe members of Boucicault's company at Booth s theater last fall. box mcnEST8 nr his lot. Brougham's checkered career affords wealth of interesting incidents. Not one of them, let it be said, are to h a discredit, and all are illustrative of h s genial qualities and his versatility in a word, of the character of a man who.a acquaintances never failed to become bi. trirnds, and whose journey through this world was a continued and suc cessful effort to make others .happy. Chari table with purse and service, oa all pxasiont, no tale of woe ever failed to excite his pity, or was pt s ted by without attention. It is tend of him that some year. airo. while traveling, he discovered amid his fellow-passenger a woman in the greatest distress.-' She was sick and poor. A physician on the train told ber that unless she took f rest and absolute quiet she roust die. "Then I must die, for I bave n-ithsr money nor trunds, she an swered, sad'y. "You aie wrong, madam.' said Brougham, who was standing near; "you have both." Neglecting his own af fairs, he not only supplied her with money to be treated by such skillful doctors a the case demauded, but left the train to see that she received care and good nursing at a hotel. After his b'at engagement as a star in Bos ton. Brougham became a member of tbe Fed eral street theater stock comoany. Before that he had played at tbe National theater in the am? city, although hu appearance as a star had been at the Tremont. The Federal street establishment had undergone many failures before and the presence of Mr. Brougham, John Gilbert, Thomas Placide and others bad not drawn audience that kept the house from its usual bankruptcy. Tbe company had had no salaries for many weeks, and the manager,,. unable to meet these claims, turned - the theater over to the principal people of hi company to oper ate, free of rent, as a commonwealth. After all outside expenses and the salaries of the minor people were paid tne commonwealth divided pro rofawhat was left. For hi, four -wren soinar., Brougham frecewea three dollars' and forty-eight cents, or 'n avarage ot eighty seven c.-nts a week. Jobn Gilbert, as stage manager, together with his wite. who was then acting, drew out four dollars per week, it ia needles, to say tbat tbe com monwealth became uncommenly poor and disbanded, lha anecdotes of troughs ti might ba extended indefinitely. In all of them he appears the same kind-hearted, gen erous gentleman, considerate to his inferiors, gentle and kind to everyone, loved and re spected bv all that knew him aad admired by those to whom he appeared only aa the actor. ' HIS rXLUKSS. Although Mr. Brougham has not been in eood heaiih for the past year be bas managed to keep about with a will that nothing seemed able to br-ak down. He has suffjred from gout, rheumatism and nervous debility at various times and struggled through eaoh with courage and fortitude. The moment he entered tbe theater be forgot bis ailings, and the full flash ot tbe footlights seemed to give him hew life. H'had never been so much applauded as during his last engagement at iijotb s theater, and, although tne venture was not a fortunate one for Mr. Bouotcault, the manager, the genial John, as he was af fectionately called by those who were inti mata with him. scored many a success. Since tnat time he bas been living mainly on his annuitv. and tbat barely sufficed for hu wants. Tbe modern school of acting having driven bis plays from the stage, life those ot most of tbe legitimate writer, of the pres ent day, he was not in receipt of any royal ties from bis numerous dramatic works, and not having been endowed with an over-provident disposition, he was compelled to see his wants wait the slow arrival of the quarterly payments doe from the ' re- suits ot tbe great oenenc given bim three years ago at Wallack' theater. With faith in Providence for tbe future, and with tbat reliance on himself for which he was so remarkable, he kept on hoping against all sorts of ills and mishaps, and went to work upon a play. His latest previous efforts of tat kind had been a dramatization or adap tation of Let Scandals d'HUr, which he called- Slander, and presented to Mr. Frank Evans, lie told his ever-faithful Ship, who has been bis other self for msov years tLronph storm and sunshine, that his latest play was nia Deal, ana wouia mage such a success as would provide comfortably for both of them in their old age. "Ship, old man," he said to this constant attendant only a few days ago, "yon must not show the white feather. While there s life there a hope." His pas sionate love for the stage kept his ambition alive, and he felt he should be at work up to the last movement. One of the reasons that so few knew about h illness. was the new play. He intended to produce it next fall, and he did not wish that the report of bad neaitn should be spread to mar its reception. No sooner was tbe report of his being dan gerously ill whispered yesterday than the re ception rooms of his house were filled with professional men. Lester Wallack went there and afterward sent bis doctor. He was S3 overcome by griet at the eight of his old frier d and associate that the tears cursed readily down his cheek. Mr. John M Culloagh was next admitted to the aick chamber, and remained a tew minutes with their sufferer. Mr. Gilbert, Mr. Floyd, Mr. -Beckett, Mr. Frank Mordanat, . Mr. James W. Marrissey, Mr. Frank Lawlor, with many other gentlemen as well aa score of ladies, naid tbe.ir reanepfa tn r ha dvinir tnr nrwn whom each looked aa a particular intimate, i Only a lew were admitted to the invalid's I room. During tbe early hours ot the morning he was considered to be in a very precarious condition, but as the day wore en he im proved and toward one o'clock fell into a quiet sleep that lasted tor several hours. When Dr. Qaackeobush called after four o'clock he pronounced .him much better, yet he reco -amended the greatest possible care. The invalid's left arm and part of his side were then paralyzed, and the py.icians did not Mem to entertain strong hope, that he would last much longer. Mrs. Louisa El dndgeand Mme Ponisi were tbe last visitors at the house, and they left word they should be immediately sent for if anything hap pened. A. tscnnKB DAT.

A nre having been mads in the furnace, and a poisonous compound dropped in, the top is securely closed, tbe chamber placed over the gopher or squirrel bole, and the air forcing machine started, when all the smoke and poisonous vapors are forced down into the hole, killing, it is claimed, everything animate with which it come, in contact.

The Travel of m Needle. A few weeks ago. as a young lady of Salis bury, Maryland, waa getting into a carriage a sewing-needle was by some means torcea into her thigh, but being considered a trifling matter, little or no attention was paid to it at the time. Several days after this occur rence, however, her ankle pained her very much, and on examination it was found that tbe needle was the cause of it. In ber ef fort, to gat it out it broke and she only suc ceeded in getting one part (the eye half) of it out. Tbe point part remained and two day. atter she telt tbat juet below the Knee, but was still unable to get it out Two weeks then elapsed and she felt something in her throat, but the obstruction was 'supposed to be a fish-bone. After several efforts to re move it she at last succeeded, and it proved to be the point of the needle. Thus, in a few weeks time, a common eewing-needle enters a person at tbe thigh, makes it way down to the ankle, then retraces its steps, and goes op the body and comes out at the throat. This may appear to be an incredible story, but it is true nevertheless. It is vouched for by a gentleman of unquestioned veracity. SC fals Cattle Market. St. Louis. June 7.

San Francisco, Jane 7.

At the market on Monday the first ears shown were grown in Sussex, from red winter American. Unless there is some unexpected change tbe harvest pros pect is fairly promising. ' The deliveries of English wheat at the provincial market have been less than half those of tbe correspond ing week last year. They were aleo very meager at Mark Lane. Holders show con siderable firmness, which prevented any decline being caused by the im proved appearance of the growing crop. The imports forcing to London have been moderate.

Relative to the announoed intention of the American " nncr " to force up the price of red winter before tbe end of June, tbe prob ability of a material advance is remote, as tbe London trade has hitherto shown extreme disinclination to follow the American specu lative fluctuations.

Lon on correspondence of Philadelphia Times: '1 have often thought tbat a brief aescnption of the aressing-room of well known actresses would make an amusing ar ticle wherewith to please the general public, who now and then like to have glimpses of 'behind the scenes.' In the olden time there was not much to note in dressice-rooms. Tney were plainly, not to say, poorly, fur- nisbed, and, unless tbe artist added a few knick-knacks to spruce the place no. the management provided nothing except bare necessities. Rose Cheri, of the Paris Gym nase, was the first actress who really taught her companions to upholster a lea, as thev term it in Pans.-. Her husband adored her; he was rich, and, as she spent six hours ot the twenty-four in and about her dressing- room, be bought her furniture which ' would bave gratified the Princess Badroulbadour. The carpet was of rich Aubusson, the time piece was Gothic; there was a Psyche of Pradier en a bracket; the lounge was in vel vet of Utrecht: there were satin hangings of sheeny texture in poetic cloudy blue in anon, not am g was wanting to make tbe re treat of this gifted little actress a boudoir of beauty. Madame Desclee, wbo came next; stripped this nest of its opulent adornments. Tbe girandoles and the srJendors thev re flected were cast away and dull draperies of Sid-colored cloth replaced them. The logs ot tbe famous Madame Grisi was alwavs supplied with a store of raw eggs, which the aiva sucaea oeiore entering on the scene to sing her great embroidered number. That of Madame Bersiani never tacked the flavor of old cognac which the can tat rice used to strengthen her voice or her 'organ.' as the critics at present elect to term it. Tag lion i, the sylphite, was more temperate. Her little weakness was lemonade gaieuse, a harmless aerial beverage, with stouter brag than body. Madame Guyemard waa more sober still. She, in her logs, was satisfied with a gilt looking-glass and four horsehair chairs. Ma rie Battu received her friends in a room white, clean aad cheerful as a Cheater oouaty farmhouse parlor or a Datch kitchen. You will remember it is only the field officers of the mimic army who are complimented with loots the subaltern mnat anhmit to the accommodation of the green- rcom. Sara Bernhardt' room at the 1 rancaia is expensively decorated and upholstered, and in the latter days of her career at tbe Taneties, the 'Grand Docbess of Gerolstein,' Madame Schneider, - inhabited ft room that might have been allotted to a real bona fids grand duchess. To-day the most luxurious dressing-rooms of Paris are enjoyed by Theo and Judic, -the opera bouffists. and Leonide LeBiano, tbe aotress, has spent ten thousand dollars on her log. In London tbe dressing rooms of the artists are merely comfortable. Henry Irving's toy- comee the-nearest to pretension of elegance, and Toole' little box at the Folly ia quaintly and neatly furnished. The ' dressing-totms of the St. James theater are neatly appointed, but a it is not ths habit of Eoglieh actresses to receive their friends ia their dressing room, but little money is spent in adornments, Madame Patti's to am at Civent Garden boasts of a tew pictures and flowers, and Madame Al bani dresses in a room tbat h devoid of all pretensions to sumptuosity."

In justice to those who may suffer as I bave suffered, and aa a gTBteful acknowledgment of the core I have reeeivea irom uie useoi uiclvih.wm jibwmm I -vnlnntAinlv vnslrA the following statement T hftro ha1 Kalt Rheum on mv bodv and on my leg in m very aggravated form for eight years. No kind of treatment, or medicine, or doctors, during this time, did me any permanent good. My friends tn u.M.n tnd iMvhfni Vtinw tnat I nave been a great sufferer, and that my condition at times has been such aa to make me despair of ever being able to find a cure, or even a relief. In fact, when I be gan the use of Ccnccaa, my limb was so raw and tender that I could not bear my weight on It with out the skin cracking and bleeding, and was obliged to go about oo crutches. I commenced to use tbe Cuticuka in April, and at once realized ita bene ficial effects. It gaadually drew the inflammation and humor to tbe surface, and as fast as it appeared, healed it. At times largequantities would come to the surface, causing burning heaL inflammation, swelling and Itching, which, under the constant use of CunccEA, would rapidly subside and heaL Each time these outbreaks grew less and less severe and finally disappeared, leaving me perfectly cured. I used the Cuncin and So at five months and took the Resolvent most of the time, which were tbe only remedies I used. I think the Rssovrm a very strengthening and purifying medicine to take in such extreme cases as mine, oe la so weakening to the system. I Very grateiullyrour Uauck, Mass..
