'Ibb aa KwaWlim Halt". FBI DAY !JUE 8, 1881 THE INMICiRANTN. The New York Bulletin the other day gave a graphic description of the appearance in the street of that city of crowds of ininii grants just landed,- and who were wandering about in group gazing at the novelty of the new and, to them, often strange nights offered by the metropolis of "the Dew world." They were principally Scandinavian!, with many Swim, German and Italian, but were moBtly Sweden, Dane and Norwegian. Many were iu whole families, with the old grandfather and grandmother and the young children. Their quaint costume often no out of keep ing with our own fashion of drew their bronzed and weather-beaten bat bale and hearty faces, told of toilsome labor, and the women, like the men, showed by their hard bands and worn faces that they, like them, knew what it was to slave diligently and continuously, in the sunshine and the wind p rj ..owu aaa aarc HVIUS; DUt they were usually in neat and com fortable attire, and were, as general tning, evidently not mere poor laborers dependent day by day upou the day's work. From our consular agents and others we know that the people at pres ent coming lrom those countries are com monly of the "well-to-do" claim people who had means, which they found melting away spite of their industry and parsimony and hard, scanty living. So they took their lit tle capital and will buy lands in the Went and settle and live well on the produce of their own land, and flonriHh and leave good, patriotic American sons and daughters lie himj them. It was touching to observe that tlie- countenances generally wear a sad ex pression, a sort of weary hopelessness, as if grinding toil and bondage to exacting and overbearing "superiors" had crushed the fount of joy within them. The very boys and girls walked hand-in-hand with a quiet old-man and old-woman sort of sedate ness that was depressing to look at. There was little of that unrestrained glee young people usually exhibit when new sights in new cities are before them. Bat this will all be changed when they have put up their cot tages in the teeming West, jiivl the cow is lowing by the door, and flowers are bloom ing and vegetables flourishing iu the little garden, and the wheat and the corn In the Gelds are giving promise of a bountiful har vest. The grown-up eople will sometimes think ot the village far away beyond the salt sea, but aa they pray for friends left behind they will utter hosannas that they are in a plenteous land, resting under their own vine and roof, and none daring to make them afraid. THE LAID BILL AN U THE LOR DM. The great difficulty which every party in Kugland finds before it on reaching power, when it has vanquished its opponents in Parliament, is the Irish question, i Kugland is governed by a monarch who comes to his ofliee by birth, by Lords who succeed to their position in the same manner, and by com mons elected to Parliament by the vote of the people and representing their will. The monarch and the Lords come to their placet whether it is the will of the people or not. The Lords, as peers of the realm, have an equal .hare in the legislation of the country T ... M. .. . . t I wuu iue commons; iney lorm a instinct nouse i as our Senate is distinct from the House of Representatives. The Lordscollectively hold a large portion of the land of Great Britain, and therefore have a strong personal interest in all questions affecting the possession of that species of property. Many of the members of the House of Commons are also large landowners, but the House being largely made up of representatives from towns, a a whole it has not the personal interest in land that exists in the House of Lords, This explanation is sufficient to show that the Irish question, connected as it is so closely with the tenure of laud, is one of pe culiar delicacy for the Lords to handle. Their conduct as legislators is naturally biased by their position as landlords, and their proceedings on questions affecting the landed interest! are therefore scrutinized with peculiar jealousy and mistrust. Deli cate as the position of the Lords is as judges and jury in their own case, they have never shown any delicacy tn dealing with it. Un hesitatingly they have used their pwer for the security and advancement of their own interests. -They constitute what we should call a "land ring," and hare always legisla ted for the benefit of the ring with all the unscrupulous selfishness common to rings in general. The Commons, notwithstanding the impolitic attitude of Mr. Parnell and his followers, will pass the Irish laud bill of Lord Gladstone, but what will the Lords do with it? If the bill pass it curtails, not only the power of raising rents to the utmost which, to do them justice, has not been a general fault with them, though there have been shameful instancts of unconscientious grasping ou the part of individuals among them but their dictatorial privileges as land sovereigns over feudal tenants, whom they hold in actual though not avowed and legal vassalage. The bill reduces them as holders of land to a mere business standing, receiv ers of the rent paid by the tenants, and the teuant having his legal rights a well as they themselves. Here is a coming down from the lord to the mere man of business that they consider derogatory to their posi tions, and an unbearable curtailment of their privilege. Shall they reject the bill then? As hereditary and irresponsible law maker they have the power to do so, but, as matters stand, there may be danger iu exercising their power in the directiou they would pre fer. Ou two or three occssiuus of late years, when Irish questions of an important character have been before them, they have remorselessly refused the relief that had been voted by the House of Commons, and bills passed by the Commons to rectify oppressive abuses exist ing in England also have fared no better at their hands. These proceedings have raised up a strong feeling against the hereditary, irresponsible legislator who think more of their own interesU and privileges than of the welfare of the people. Curses both loud and deep have been fulminated against them on both sides the British channel, and everywhere the dan gerous question has been asked: What is the use of a house of legislators that holds iu position not from its fitness, or their abil ity, bat from the mere accident of birth? After they had defeated a bill last summer giving certain relief to Irish tenanU, Mr. Korster said in the House of Commons that if au.'h a policy was persisted in it would be come necessary to change the constitution of the House of Lords, and another member of fered a motion that it was no longer expe dient to offer any measure for the improve ment of the condition of the people to such legislators. The spirit shown by these speak ers has not died away. What then is to be doue? The House cf Lords are in this position if they do not pass popular aoaasurss they becoma liable to saodifica- tioB, if not atinctioa; if thsy habitually pass what ths Hons of ConateDa has pasted thsy become, what they have often been called of lata years, a mere debating society. Sncb is the dilemma in which they stand, and the lribb land bill, when it comes before theui, will bring them and their pusitiou and their fn ture to the tost. The signs are that they will with the fatuity so common in aristocracies, dure all, "stand by their order," and reject the bill. The leader of the House of Lords, who has recently been chosen as the succes sor of Beaconsfield, i Lord Salisbury, and he calls upon the Lords to throw out the bill. He casts down the gage of battle boldly, and savs: "It would be better that the House of Lords should cease to exist than that its functions should be merely to conform to th decisions of the House of Commons." All this Bhows that the pending question that is so momentous to Ireland is an impending danger to England that may lead to the uioct serious contentions and the most dire disas ters, for, if the hereditary legislation of the Lords should be annihilated as the ending of the trouble, where would be the safety of the hereditary throne? Should a future mon arch become as unpopular a the Lords will be if they "follow their leader," what would be that monarch's when the House of -Lords was gone? MISCELLANEOUS PEUSONALS. A foot-ball match in Edinburgh between team of ladies representing England and Scotland recentlv resulted in favor of Scot land. The ladies wore tielits and knicker bockers, and many of them had the 'appear ance of ballet -dancers.

It is now made known that the biographi cal sketch of Lord Beaconsfield, which ap peared in the Iaondon Times, was written by Sir Vernon Harcotirt, Home Secretary in the present Liberal Ministry. Two hundred pounds were paid for it, more perhaps be cause of its authorship than of its real worth. Stephen Massett has just issued two bal lads, one, The Dying Jioy's I'Tayer, dedicated to Mr. Sam Ward, the words by the London puet, Austin Dobsou a touching story with an admirable musical setting and the other, Jy Darling Shoo, both the words and music of which will doubtless touch the popular taste. Princess Malhilde, Bister of Prince Napo leou, maintains her state at - Paris in the midst of fashionable and literary society. She still keeps the gayety of heart and many of the grace of youth, and never meddles in politics. Her profile is still handsome, her elderly figure retains much of its beauty, and she dresses richly in brocades and laces. The following epitaph, written by William Winter, will lie inscribed on the monument in Greenwood that "marks the grave of Brougham: , ' .,, i I lira or, that every sorrow could beguile.

Here is a story about an English Lord, well known iu the theatrical world.

General Wright says also that Mr. Davis is a very poor man. tie bad to borrow money to pay off the debts on the Beau voir estate, and his own plantation he lias leased to hi old laves, who never make more than a living from it. The Empress of Russia is described as looking like a corpse rather than a living being, sitting speechless and unmoved( as though neither seeing nor hearing anything. It was, perhaps, a premonition of Nihilist terrors that made poor Dagruar so depressed when, as a bride, she traveled to meet the Czarewitch. The girl had to have her white face painted, it is said, before she entered the native city of her future husband, that the people might not notice all the misery of her expression.

Keane, D.D., Bishop of the Richmond Dio cese, whose rapidly failing sight has been re cently noticed, returned to this city from New lork rriuay night, where he had been to consult a prominent oculist. The bishop, who had been informed by his physicians that he was threatened with total blindness, and must rest from all kinds of study for one year, returns somewhat encouraged. The New York physician informed him that a three montlis rest would probably restore his failing sight." Dr. luring, the new Commissioner of Agri culture, is the sun f a clergyman who lived at North Andover, Massachusetts. The story is told that he and his brother were gaunt boys. Their father sent them one day to an adjacent cattle show with some very fat hogs to exhibit. The boys were rather proud of the many compliments paid to the hogs, until a farmer came along and said to an ac quaintance: "Mighty uice trogs, these of Par son Loriug's; but why don't he give his boys more to eat and his hogs less?"

A iSTHOXJ APPEAL From ArrlihiMliop Croke for Redress of (he Many Wrongs Under Whirl. Ireland Now SnfferB. His Able Exposition of the Objects of the Land League Resort to ; Force Discountenanced. . " Pl-BUN, June 2. Archbishop Croke con cluded at Thurles yesterday one of the most extraordinary campaigns ever known in Irish ecclesiastical history. His Grace brought l.ls labors lo a close with two speechea con taining several passages of the highest im-IHirtanc-e at the present moment. In the fore noon lie made a remarkable appeal to Glad stone, in out a eton to evictions. His Grace ttfiiil "I n. . tn that preat statesman solemnly as an Irish patriot, as an Irish bishop, in the name of Tipperary and in the name of Ire land, to let his fiat go out that there are to be no more evictions during this present time. Great cheering. It is a curious fact that the word eviction, in the sense in which it is used here, is scarcely known in any other countrv in - the world. There is no such word and no such thing elsewhere. It is t word of evil omen. It is a word that im ports depopulation :$ur country; that imports degradation of ; our people; that imports the flying of them beyond the water to foreign lands in quest of means of liveli IkuhI, m"T""g iii betrr Hplrlt of ven-s-esuce against what is certainly the greatest empire in the world, but which is no less certainly an empire which has treated Ireland worse than ever an empire treated a dependency. Loud cheers. There fore I Would sav to that erreat statesman: 'If yon value the friendship of Ireland, if you value the good name of Ireland, if you value the lives of our people, if you don't wish to eretuate the natioual feud and sanguinary traditions that have rule 1 in this country for ages, blot out from the statute-book the name of eviction, and let no man henceforth be turned out from his land unless it is quite clear that the money which should have met liisengagements was wastefiilly and foolishly dissipated.' Loud cheers. It was only the other day that the venerable par ish priest ot .May car key told me that when he became priest of that parish it contained twelve hundred families. There are at present only four hundred. Iet me ask Mr. Gladstone what has become of the eight hundred families once so happy in their humble homes, who hare been driven from the parish. Many of them have gone into the grave, many to the workhouse and many to the creat Kepuulic of the west, bear ing with them undying hatred for the country that banished them 'from their native land. .Great cheering. . "At the same time, if the evictions are to go on, 1 would advise you how to act. Don bring yourselves into collision with the an thonties; they are too strong for you. If not even for conscience sake, for our own pres ervation, for the sake of expediency if not of principle, wc must act on the defensive. We must oiler passive resistance M those opposed to us, and in that way they will get tired of the contest; because a whole united people hare never yet been deleated. In the evening His Grace entered fullv into the present position and acts of the Land League. He declared that the agitation was not due to Davitt, nor i'arnell, nor their fol lowers, but to the fact that there was mighty grievance, and that the Irish peopl had contemplated it manfully, and were de termined to remore it. . "Without the priest hood ot Ireland, it would have been impossi ble," said Hi Grace, "for the movement to have reached its present mighty dimensions." It had been said that I'arnell did not wish the co-operation of the priesthood, but the Archbishop declared authoritatively that two years ago I'arnell waited on him in Dublin and literally went down on his knees to him to ask him to use all his influence to have the priests join in the movement. THE ARCHBISHOPS SECOND ADDRESS IN THE EVENING. His Grace concluded with the following remarKaoie declaration: l have to say that tins movement is not a revolutionary move ment in the strict sense ot the word, it is a constitutional movement; it is a lawful move ment; it is a movement which we intend to push forward by moral force alone, Cheers. e do not intend to violate any law; we in tend to exhaust all constitutional remedies; we are perfectly certain that the elasticitv of 1 the constitution will allow us the means ot "... ... ,, .. - . I working energetically to the last, and finally achieving the result we aim at; we wish to produce an effect upon England not by phy sical force or by any manifestation of physi cal force, but by moral means; we want to make our grievances known before the entire world; to tell France, and Spain, and Italy, and -the United States, and the great colonies that acknowledge the sway of Great Britain, that as in this country we have been kept down by bayoneU to. the present time, ind as by bayonets we are kept down at present, please God we are now fully determined, bayonets or no bayoneU great cheering, to proclaim at all evenU all of our wants, and stand to proclaim that we will not be satisfied until we get our rights, and that we will enlist in our behalf not the swords, nor guus, nor cannon of Frauce, or of Spain, or of Italy, or of the United States, but the intelligent opinion of all the intelligent uations of the world. Therefore this is not a revolutionary movement, nor is it an irreligious movement, because it is con ducted by the most religious people in the world and backed up by the best, most holy, most 1 1 sacrificing, most faithful and most uncompromising priest hood in the world. Great cheering. It is not an unjust movement calculated or drsigued to do injury to anybody. We repu diate that charge. We say we do not intend to do injury to any mortal man. We recog nize the rights of the owners of the soil, and we recognize our own rights at . the same time; and while we give to CVsar the things that are (.'a-sar's, we will assert for ourselves the things that are ours. Ixmd cheers. What we want is a chance for our lives in our own couutry, and we will forget the past. We will forget the numberless tyrannies of England.. We will forget all the tears we have been obliged to shed. We will forget the massacres that have been committed, the extermination of our race, and the downfall, so far as it was possible for them to accom plish it, of our dear country, and we will be gin a new score with the dominant country; we will let them see that we are not only able to flourish abroad, but that in our land we cannot be suppressed. Cheers. I hear of disagreement among the leaders of the eople, but these things are exagger ated. Our phalanx is unbroken, our spirit is unsubdued, and the result is therefore as clear as dav we must succeed." The Yonaareiit Soldier II umbo a;. . Milwaukee Jb'piibtiean: "A number of eastern newspapers have been deluded into the belief that the youngest person to enlist in the army of the Union, during the war of the rebellion, was a llt'teen-year-old Massa chusetts Ih.v. The man who started the claim in his own behalf could not have seen much service, else he would have known that there were thousands of boys in both armies who were no older than the age that he gives and boasts of. The Nineteenth Wis consin Infantry enlisted several boys who were only fourteen years old. Colonel Ar thur McArtbur, Jr., went out as adjutant of the Twenty-fourth Wisconsin, and tiecame a colonel of his regiment liefore his twentieth birthday anniversary. Major Clem, now of the regular army, wa undoubtedly the youngest private soldier of the Union army, and he was but twelve years old when he killed a rebel colonel at C'hickauiauga. Wis consin furnished scores if not hundreds of boys but fifteen years old when they enlisted. A Kentucky regiment was commanded by an eighteen-year-old boy. A drummer-boy, who was but ten years old, received fire or six different wounds at Perryville. The Con federate army enlisted thousands of loys younger than the Massachusetts self-constituted hero. I leputy United States Collector James, of this city, brother of Henry James, Jr., the novelist, could not have been more than seventeen or eighteen years old when he assisted to lead the assault on Fort Wagner. The 'youngest soldier' business, as paraded iu the eastern press, is a humbug." Oaie of Bonanu Marker's Srhemea. New York, June 2. A dinner was given last evening to Governor Thomas S. Young, of Ohio, bv John V Mackev. of Bonanza fame, at which were present Senator Jones and i-.x-(.ongressman . Daggett, oi Nevada, and others interested in the muling business.

COXKLING'S CHANCES Do not Improve Result of Two Ballots Takes Yesterday Prospect of Adjournment. Real Policy of the Half-Breeds Said to be the Succession of Cornell to Piatt's Place. Albaitt, June 2. One of Conkling's vols (that of Astor) was withheld through a pair with fonder. The First Ballot Yesterday. The following is the result of the first bal lot to-day to hli tJonklings vacancy: (Jonk ling, Si; Jacobs, 02; Wheeler, 1; JKogers, 11 Cornell, 21 ; Fenton, 2; Pomeroy. 1 ; Kdick, 1 Folger, 2; Crowley, 1; Bradley, ; Tremaine, 2; Chapman, 1; Dutcher, 1; Lapham, 1 Fish, 1.

A resolution to adjourn fine die on Satur day was lost in the Assembly to-day by J9 to CS, only Democrats voting for it A concur rent resolution to take a recess from Friday until 1 uesday was adopted. Programme- of the Half-Bred. New York, June 2. The Commere.iaV Albany specials says that the real policy of the half-breeds is now declared to be, farst, the election of Governor Cornell in place of Piatt by the aid of enough of Conkling's present supporters to give them the required eighty-one votes. Before this is done the half -breeds are to require the assent of their allies to the proposition that they (the half- breeds) are to have the absolute riirht to name the successor of Conkling. Should this be ' - ... ... .. . confirmed, the half-breeds are to name Reuben E. Fenton as Conkling's successor, which the allies, with their hands tied by pledges, will be in no position to oppose. Trouble in I he Administration ramp. The Graphic' Albany special savs there is trouble in the camp of the administration men, growing out of the multitude of candi dates. The difficulty is to find a stalwart who can break the Conkling column. The Depew men want Cornell, ud others want Crowley or Lapham, and there is intriguing ?na nermining m eacn direction, ine f,end,, of Coukling are bolder this morning Ihan f a..vt.n,0 than at any time during the contest. The stalwart organ calls upou Republicans to re tain Conkling as leader ot the party, and asks his opponents to name their uiau who is to take Ins place as leader. It is in the failure of the half-breeds to unite upon a candidate that the stalwarU see their oppor tunity. It is suspected that Conkling has had several members acting with the half breeds, who are kept there for the express puriiose of preventing any agreement ou candidates. Half-Breeda la a Quandary. The special of the Eiprem, Democratic, says: "the halt-breed Kepublicans are in a terrible quandary. In the beginning of this tight Senator Kobertson and his stall mapped out a programme which was not to be ex tended, aud which provided only for the de feat of Conkling. That, of course, would al so shelve Piatt aa well. The day and hour rolled around when the most sanguine of Roscoe's friends were forced to acknowledge that their leader was defeated. The admis sion induced the halt-breeds to not only abuse the ex-boss, but amend their first programme by attempting to replace Conk ling and Piatt with two pronounced enemies of stalwartism. It is this amendment that has exhibited their first mistake and forced a halt which may inflict irreparable injury. It is to get out of this unfortunate quandary that the secret meeting was held last night. One thing is certain, if the determination to land two half-breeds a winner is the programme, it will be futile, and for this reason. Conkling has thirty-five members who will cling to him until he retires from the race, and after that to any two men who are in sympathy with bim. Besides these, there are thirteen members who are anxious to cast their ballots for Conkling, but dare not do so and accept the sentence of their indignant con stituency.- This, then, makes a total of forty eight votes for the stalwarts, wlijch is twenty- two more than is required for a dead-lock. Should Robertson aud Woodin break that dead-lock, extend the olive branch and ac cord two, or even one of the vacancies to Conkling's friends, it would le regarded as a virtual back-down and weakness, which would tend to rebuild the waning power of the opposition." THE TKI.BGBAM'S SPEC'IAL SAYS: The balloting so far leaves the situation a great a puzzle as ever, and should the stal warts, acting like the 'MXi at Chicago, keep up an unbroken front from day today, there is no chance whatever of the Administration can didates being elected. Silas B. Dutcher, about the prospect for Conkling and Piatt, said: "It is satisfactory enough to us as it stands. We have sufficient voles to com mand the situation, and the developments expected to-day and to-morrow will give us increased strength. The votes for Cornell and Crowley will not stay with them, but will come back to Conkling and Piatt at the first break. The prospect is more hopeful for the stalwart side than it has appeared since the beginning of the canvass." HENATOR FORSTER, speaking in behalf of the Administration side, said: "It is impossible to tell, at this moment, who will be the choice of the con vention for our side. I should not be Bur prised if the developmenU were such that a stalwart and a half-breed would constitute the ticket. It may be Cornell and Depew, which would attract support from both wings. I don't think the stalwarts are so mad with Cornell as they pretend. They would certainly rather have him than a half breed, and the half-breeds are favorably dis posed to him."

MATTERS OF INTEREST Discus : ' by the Sew York Chamber of iterce Yeslerday Custom house Appointments. Con The Cao of Hie Sugar Importers Con sider d Collector Merritt and the Steamship Newport. New York. June 2. At a meeting of the Chamber of Commerce to-day Mr. James M. lirown, hanker, presiding, a resolution was adopted declaring that the system of exam ination for the appointment to place in the customhnuse which has ruled during the last few years has been of substantial value to the mercantile community, and should be continued and extended. The committee appointed to prepare a re ply to Secretary Sherman's letter to the Chamber last Februarr in reference to the col lection of duties of sugar, presented their re jH.rt. They declare the Secretary's letter evasive, as no attempt was made in it to re fute the fact set forth on behalf of thi-aim- porters. Keterring to the trial of the test case of Welch against Merritt at the last term of the United States Circuit Court, they say: "In the trial of the test case the importers offered no evidence whatever in rebuttal of testimony of the Treasury witnesses. Then they claimed that they were conducting their business within the law, and were sat isfied to rest their case solely ou the law Tln Court sustained the importers, and not withstanding all the evidence introduced by the Treasury directed the jury to find a ver dict for plaintiffs. We make the point of the result of th;s trial because it is a direct refutation of the allegation set forth by Mr. Sherman in his letter, and confirmation oi the position taken by the Chamber. It i conceded on all hands that it ia fraud to color sugar, after it becomes sugar, for the purpose of evading duties, Scientific Treassrv ai;enU told the Secretary that sugar became sugar aa soon aa crystal formed in the entire product from the cane; but of course this was not the sugar of com merce, and so far the court has sustained the position of the merchants upon which, as a matter of law, ret their case, namely, that so long as the article in question is the sugar of commerce, its color by comparison with the duties standard is the sole test of dutiable classification.. In conclusion, the committee remark that the Treasury department cannot "secure the kindly aid and good will of the merchants," for which Secretary Sherman ex pressed a desire, when the merchants are, "in a wholesale way, charged with fraud, and without any evidence in support of the charge." Colonel Frederick A. Conkling, brother of Ex-Senator Conkling, made a long speech, in which he upheld the course of Kx-becretarv Sherman in refusing to rescind his order of Septemlier 2, 1871, or refund the alleged ex cess of duties on sugar collected under its provisions. 1 he committee s report was then adopted. Colonel Conkling alone voting the negative. A letter was read from James E. Ward Co., inclosing a copy of a letter written by them to Secretary Windom regarding the refusal of Collector Merritt to grant a clear ance to their steamship NewjHirt, on the ground of smuggling by members of the crew. Ward & Co. say: "We claim that the interpretation given to the United States laws by the ollicers administering the law division ot the customhouse is, to say the least, an unfair one, as we cannot believe it was the intention of any government or legis lation to make the innocent suffer for the guilty. Further, " the officers decline to prosecute men caught in the act of smug gling, but claim the right of holding the ship and her master for the offense, when the written report of the officers making the seizure stated that cigars were found upon the person of some of the crew, who were at 1. . , i.i rni ir tempting to mnu tueui. nius iuey uesire 10 make our captain and ollicers revenue ofti cers without pay, and our ships virtually bondsmen for them." The letter was referred, and the chamber adjourned until October. GOOD O K ED IT Enable Ohio to Borrow All the Money Mie Want. Coi.VMBl'S, June 2.

Mable, in the Chrinlian Union: The success of the Greek day means more than appeared to the crowded theater which watched its representations, and more than will be read in any accounts of it. It means a scholarly achievement in which any university might rejoice, as an indication of iu spirit and iu work; it means an advance in the direction of generous learning, which the purely practical and scientific tendencies of recent years have disastrously checked; it mcaus a revival of the human interest in the masterpieces of antiquity, not to imitate slav ishly their perfect art, but to share again iu their conceptions of the vaster life which overhangs and underlies historical fact, and to restore right relations lietween the imagi nation and the undi rstantli'ig. Harvard a d lege has done a noble work for American scholarship, and whenever the beautiful set ting of the play and the sweetness and purity of the Greek accent are mentioned, it should not lie f.rrgotUn that this result was secured largely lyj he efforts of Profs. Godwin and While ot the Greek department, and Prof. Charles Klliott Norton, whose scholarly spirit and elegant culture have been of great value at every stage of preparation. NEWS FROM 0UB NEIGHBORS.

THE FALL OF TWO LOVERS. An unfortunate accident terminated a ro mantic adventure of two lovers in the Rue des Trois Bornes, Paris.

A few days back the young people met by chance the streets, and Aitred persuaded his sweetheart that, if she were willing, it would be easy for hira to visit her in her prison Julie consented, and, as arranged, about 10 o'clock at night tied her sheets end. to end and made fast one extremity to her window rail, letting down the other into the court yard.

THE SPECTRA ..PHOTOMETER. Prof. Vogel, of Potsdam, one of the mos distinguished of living investigators of the secrets of the stars, has recently invented "siectral photometer, by means of which he has thrown new light on celestial physics. He has rendered it certain that the stars I which shine with a white light are far hotter than our sun; that the yellow stars which give a spectrum similar to that of the sun are about as hot as that luminary, while the red stars arc much colder or, rather, much less lint av about the temperature of the elec tric arc Prof. Vogel has also studied the moon "spectral photometrically, and found on its surface several substances which exist also on the earth. Among these aredolerite, yellow loam, yellow sand and a yellowish gray sandstone. SHE PREFERRED DEATH TO THE LOSS OF LEG.

Grand Duke Nicholas Constantinovitcb, who is accused both of Nihilism and semi lunacy, and who is to be confined in the fortress of Dunaburg for the rest of his life, is described as' a brave, clcrer. exceedingly handsome and fascinating mad. His wife has been permitted by the Czar to follow him to Dunaburg. During his exile at Oren burg he fell in love with the remarkably beautiful daughter of the local postmaster. In spile of the order of Lzar Alexander 11 that he should break the connection, the Grand Duke betrothed himself to the girl and persuaded the priest of a village church to marry them. The Czar was so offended that he ordered the nauie of Constautinovitch to be struck out of the list of the imperial fam ily, which is prayed for, name by name, in all the churches of Russia. Shortly before his death, however, the late Czar rescinded this order. I.ADV ARTISTS IN PARIS. Many ladies of rank in Paris are devoted to art. One of the most remarkable pictures in this year's salon is the work of Mile, de Bashkirseff, one of the belles of the season, who hr.s hidden her artistic identity under the assumed name of "Audrey." The dealers have offered $1000 for the picture, but the young lady refuses, intending it as a gift to a friend. Another little picture in the salon at tributed to "Madame D'Allx-rt" is really due to the brush of the 1 luchesse Albert de Luynes, and "Mile. Routfs," whose name is attached to two water-colors, is the Princess R. de Scylla. There are also several men of title Count de Veil Casttl, Count Arthur de Pas sage, the Due de habran-I'onteves and the Maiquis d'Hervey Saint-Denis among the exhibitors. LONGFELLOW IN LITERARY LABOR. Mr. Longfelle-w, in spite of his many years, is in excellent health, the possessor of a brisk step and unimpaired love for work. His face is full of genial expression, fringed by a wealth of gray whiskers, aud sur mounted by a quantity of white hair. He does not believe that art and literature are following wealth to this city, A correspond ent of the Boston Herald quotes him as say ing that "Boston is really the Athens of America. It may be that art follows the avenues of wealth, for where money is in the greatest abundance artists usually find the greatest Bales for their pictures. It is not so with literature. It requires different sur roundings and conditions than art. Literary labor requires quiet and the opportunity for thought, and the richest people are not usu ally those who invest moat in books. No, the center of literature belongs and must re main with the educational center, for it re quires associations- that are entirely at va riance with commerce, finance, dry goods and banking." CRCRCHTARD BUTTER. Kverv settled minister in the Church of Scotland has a manse and glebe. Among his iH-rquisites is the grass of the church yard, aud Ibis, instead ol being mown, is nlieu eaten bv the ministers sheep and cow. Mr. Adam, an eccentric old bachelor tine famous uiinister of Millfiort, who prayed for tilts island (one oi the Lumbraes) and . the neighboring islands of Great Britaiiranif Ireland" was one 8ay entertaining a party of visitors. Being anxious, like a good host. that his guests should do justice to the crea ture comforts setjbefore them, he made a point of setting forth the good qualities of each particular dish. The running com mentary of recommendation was sufficiently uauBaaig aa.a aaitaug, uui It Bkiaiueu IIS CllfU&X when, turning to a young lady of the party, he pressed her not to spare the butter. "It was weel worth 'the tastin'," he said; "there as nane in a the toon like it. it was en id kirkyard butter." . THE OLD IRISH IJtAV OF "DISTRESS." ' It is rather strange that more than half of the Senchers Mor, which is one of the most valuable lirehon works remaining, is about the law of distress. In "Ireland the debtor I better oil than in Kugland. Iiecause it was necessary for the creditor to give notice before distress. But the most curious rule existed in favor of a person of chirflain grade." Here it was necessary not only to give notice but to "fast upon him." This consisted in going to the debtor's house and waiting there for a certain lime without food. It then the debtor did not give satis faction the creditor, accompanied by his law agents and friends, seized the distress. This custom of fasting to obtain debts existed also in Persia and India, and in the latter country was so prevalent a practice that it had to be dealt with severely by the criminal code. LILIPITIAN MECHANISM. A watchmaker in Newcastle. Pennsylva nia, says a 1'ittsbiirg paper, has completed a set of three gold shirt studs, in one of which is a watch that keep excellent time, the dial being about three-eighths of an inch in diam eter. The three studs' are connected by a strip of silver inside the shirt bosom, and the watch contained in the middle one is wound up by turning the stud above, and the hands are set by turning the one below. But per haps the most remarkable thing about the hlipntian machine is that it works with pendulum, like a clock, aud the tienilulum will act with ease and accuracy in whatever position the timepiece is placed, even if it be turned upside down. mfnkaczy's last ncrrRF The picture of "Christ in the Pretorium," just completed by Munkaczy, is interesting all the art lovers in 1 aris. 1 tic head ol the Saviour is intensely beatiful and melancholy, and the general conception is one ot the loftiest expressions of ideal beauty. TJiat Munkaczy has not attempted to paint what is called a divine figure has given rise to discussion. "1 should never have ventured to paint a divine figure," he says, "for what is divine cannot be paiuted; if it could it wonld cease to be divine. I wished to paint a God who has assumed human form and who could only assume it in its most perfect aspect." This is the best reply to those who reproach Munkaczy with having tried to modernize the physiognomy of Christ. . Shakespeare's baskano. The following letter appears ia the last issue of the Academy: "In an old deed a copy of which is in my jiossession relating the tithes of the parish otSt. Helen, Bishops- gatej in the year l-89, are the following entries: Murke Antonio Riu-siino 8.S tithe.

The Bishop of Peterborough savs that "a society founded uprm mere benevolence and npon a universal forgiveness of ollenses could not hold together for a day. You see that the debtor and creditor are already becom ing both together debtors to the great, inex orable, universal law that binds the creditor to punish aud binds the debtor to stiller. In this aspect you see that human forgiveness is not such an eay thing. The criminal has little to fear from the anger of his judge who is enforcing the law; but, for that very reason, he has nothing to hope from his compassion. It is law that we are coming more and more in contact with and less and less with per sonality. The Uurjf ry tor May. SIKU, PRK.TTT BlttllS. Sine, pretty birds, and build your nests.

Your twilight voices softly tell When Buushiue showers have passed sway. Sing, pretty birds, and build your nests. The fields ate green, the sLtes arc clear: Sing, pretty birds, and build your nests. The world is glad to have you here. "La Blonde 4'amille." Dublin Freeman's Journal : Some years ago "La Blonde Camille" was brought to the Hotel Dieu by her mother, a laundress in the Kne des Pretres, as being a HI ic ted with a mysterious and disquieting disease of the brain which urged her to disclose aloud the secret thoughts of all who approached. The "Blonde Camillo" was pronounced to be a treasure to the doctors, and was seized upon with the greatest avidity. But none of them could form an opinion as to the origin ot the strange and weird phenomenon; and the fac ulty she possessed became so troublesome and dangerous at last she was dismissed by the physicians and sent back to her mother, who, glad to be rid of what she deemed to be a terrible nuisance, made her over to a great magnetizer of Brussels, and she was heard of no more. There is now living near Salisbury a gentleman of large fortune, who has been compelled to relinquish society owing to the development of this strange fac- 1 .1 I.. l t . . . , uny in nis uaugiiter, who win luimeuiateiy relate to the astonished guest (who enters unconscious of all guile) the criticisms and strictures npon the heuse, the furniture, the host, and herself, which have been passing through his brain as he ascended the stairs. The f'omlas; Kenmeniral Council. Philadelphia Pre, 28th: "One of the largest meetings ever held in the little Methodist Episcopal Church of the Sanctuary, on Fifth street below Oirard avenue, was called together last evening by the announce ment ot the venerable l.ishop Simpsons farewell prior to his departure forKurose on Saturday. He goes to Austria, where he cannot preach, for a brief period of rest lie- fore the Ecumenical council in Ixindon, to which he is the senior delegate from the United States. The council will be held early in September in the City Iload chapel, the birthplace of Methodism, founded in 1778 by John Wesley, who was buried close to its walls aud opposite the resting place of John Bunyan. The conference will be at tended by delegates from China, Japan, Australia, India, (termany, France, the Netherlands and the United States alxitit 500 members and will sit two weeks, rep resentatives of Methodism from all parts of the world have never before met in Ecumen ical council." Dorsey Broken Down. Ex-Senator Dorsey is in Washington com pletely broken down. The star route revela tions have prostrated him. He is no longer proud in spirits. It is alleged that for a week his house has been under a detective's eye, who reports to the attorney-general all who communicate with him. It is said there is evidence not made public which will place Dorsey in a more embarrassing position than he now is. In 1876, Dorsev was active and in strumental in exposing lilaine's connection with the Little Kock jind Fort Smith rail road, of Arkansas, which defeated him for the Presidential nomination. Now the scenes have shifted and Blaine is on top. Those who stick to it that Blaine will be uncovered in the further star route exKsure say that it was the money of the "ring," paid out by Steve Elkins, Dick McCormick and others, which made the Territorial delegates at Chi cago solid for the plumed knight. The Nprague Halt. A dispatch from Newport, Khode Island, to the Philadelphia 1'iuiex quotes Ex-Governor Sprague as saying that he did not wish to have his wife's name stricken from the docket, but rather desired that it should remain there. He gave his reasons in substance as follows: "Mrs. Sprague's whole course lias been shaped to shield Ex-Senator Conklinir. That person having by his own acts taken himself out of the way ol political advancement and ruined his own course there was no further need of seeking shelter as he had in the past, in this suit. Therefore a settlement on a business basis could now be made by parlies to both sides, and he believed such a settlement could be made. He was agreeable to a settle ment." The secret of recruiting the vital princi ple is discovered in Tutl's- Pills. In liver affections dizziness, headache, costiveness. dyspepsia, fevers of all kinds, dysentery, flatulence, heartburn, eruptions of the skin, nervoiMneas, bilious colic, loss of a petite and all the troubles of the bowels their curative effects are marvelous. They are truly the afflicted'! friend. . . Blest af B-ellrlnaa Treason. Detroit, June 2. Hon. Isaac M.
