Tlio friends of tariff" reform liave clear
foreshadowing of coming success in the ro
rent chano of policy on the part of the
protectionists. Jt was an axiom with
Abraham Lincoln that it is a dangerous
policy to swap horses when crossing a
t-tream; yet that is the policy to which the
protectionists find themselves reduced.
So urgent are the arguments used ly the
leirifr reformers, that it is found necessary
ly the monopolists to surrender a part of
their system in the hope of being able to
secure the rest. No longer is it asserted
that there must not be a tariff for revenue
with incidental protection, but a tariff for
protection with incidental revenue. The
time for such high and mighty claims the
protectionists perceive lias gone by. The
question w ith them is now what is to lie
given up? what is to be thrown overlioard
to save the ship? whose horses are to be
HWiipped while crossing u stream that is
full of danger? The dilliculty is, that
whatever interest the protectionists con
clude to give tip will consider it
self ill-used, and when given up, having
no further advantages from protection, it
will no longer struggle -for a protective
system from which it receives no advan
tage. Worse than this, there is danger
that, finding itflclf deserted and sacrificed,
it may join in tho cry against the men and
the system that have proved treacherous
to it. Here is where Lincoln's prophecy
of danger proves true, and a swapping
policy proves to be as dangerous a trade
ns swapping horses. The Ixmisiana press
is already compluiuing with bitterness at
the injustice and ingratitude of those pro
tectionists who are ready to agree to a
lowering of the sugar duties. Besides
Fiignr there is a weakening in other points,
11 willingness U admit at a low duty many
Kinds of raw material, and to enlarge con
siderably the number of articles to be ad
mitted free of duty. How far this change
.f policy is going may be judged of by-the
lai t that the protection of American ship
ping which lias protected the American
foreign carrying trade from the ocean is to
be surrendered. The St. IOuis (7oit isoneof
the most ardent supporters, "through thick
iinil thin," of the party that constructed and
maintains the high tariff system, yet we
lind it advocating, in hist Tuesday's issue,
changes for which the Ai'i'EAi. and the
tariff- reformers generally have strongly
contended. The Ghbe't article cites from
the recent report made by the P.ureau of
Statistics, the fact that "American ship
ping continues steadily on the decline,"
und that "it wubad enough last year, and
now it is worse than it was then," and
that it is evidently only a question of time
w hen it wi'.l disappear altogether, but that
it seems as it' something will be done this
winter, a bill to that effect having been in
troduced into the House by Mr. IHngley,
if Maine, "who is on general principles a
protectionist," a phrase that indicates
division between partial protectionists and
"whole hog" protectionists. Many sup
porters of the protective tariff1, the t;h,,e
adds, consider that no violence is
lone to the protective doctrine "by
giving relief to an industry which is
being effectually stamped out of exist
ence by the prevailing laws." Will Mr.
Jfourli and his disciples on the shipping
question acquiesce in this "stamping-otil
a ic-w" of their favorite notions? l'.vidently
we may look foran early and stroni; division
in the protective camp, and wheu protect
ive fall out justice will get its own. Onr
St. bonis conl. -iiij.orary proceeds to ac
knowledge that protection cannot drive
uway competition upon the ocean ns it
does on the land ; that to attempt to dis
I iniiiinte ngainst foreign vessels by pro
hibiting them to cany merchandise to and
from our polls, noiiM lead to retaliation
u the purl of loicigu governments which
it would be foolish to provoke; that chip
ers and ship builders must be put on a
plane approaching that of other nations;
that the ships which cost least and olfer
Iho lowest rates will get tho business;
therefore, "unless Americans are permit
led, like other people, to buy their ships
in the cheapest market, they labor under a
groat disadvantage ; also that their lomiage,
Inxcs, hospital dues and gratuities to dis
charged teamen are greater than those of
their competitors that these disadvan
tages have about crushed our shipping
that the remedies are simple and involve
the admission of ship building material
free of duty; that, although the price of
labor here is higher than elsewhere, there
sire probably compensating features to off
net this obstacle and keep our ship yards
busy. At all events, our people must have
cheap ships to compete successfully, and
if they cannot build them asecouomicallv
iis others, they must buy them - from
abroad. The American sailor is disap
pearing, and it will be worth much to
bring him back and gain something from
which the navy ian be reconstituted. The
plan of giving bounties is condemned for
good reasons, and the American people
will never approve of it. At all event,
other plans must first be tried, lor "the
best way to move a man who is bound
band and foot, and is willing to
walk, is to cut his bonds ami give
liim a chance." The habitual readers of
the A itki. will almost think the argu
ments of the protectionist Glole had been
taken from its columns, so identical are
they with those the Arrr.Ai. has often pro
hented in its pleas for tariff reform. If the
concessions of the protectionists can go as
far as wi'here lind, so early as this in tho
contest, how much further they may go,
who can tell? There is clearly ample oil'
our.igement for the reformer to persevere
jsnd to redouble his efforts, and the oxer-
lion of all his vigor will be wanted, for it
must be remembered that nil these prof
fered concessions arc mado onlv under
pressure, and will be at once withdrawn if
the reformers relax their efforts or lose or
lecroaso in their teal.
Among other good works done b? that
eminent philanthropist, Mr. l'eabody, be
Jeft a large fund, the interest of which is
paid annually to schools, w here tho means
( giving education to the citizens are very
limited. The Southern States are profiting
largely by this fund, and thousands of
citizens owo to it an important portion of
the education thev have received, of
course to deprive so noble a charity of any
portion of its resources, to take from the
fund a portion of the wealth devoted to so
commendable an object would bo to cur
tail its power of doing good, and the loss
of every dollar so, abstracted would be the
loss of education to a number of children,
in proportion to the amount of loss. That
every state and every citizen of a Slate re
cciving benefit from this fund should
in every way resinnt and protect
it, will be regarded as an evidently ublig.i
torv duty and a proper expression of grat-
ittido. Hut not only has protection beeu
denied, but the fund itself lias been re
duced by State refusal to pay an important
portion of the money duo from the State
concerned to the fund. The Jackson
Miss.) Clarion informs its readers that,
during the last ollieial year, the Tealssly
Vund distributed $175,000 among tho
Southern States in aid oi education, of
w hich Mississippi received $H0) in addi
tion to what had been dispensed from the
name source in previous years. The Tea-
body Fund amounts to S,0tX),OH, ltil,000
if which are Slate of Mississippi PUnters
T.auk bonds, and $14:1,000 Florida builds;
these bonds, amounting as they do to
5007,000, form a very important part of
the PcalMidv Fund, yet the Stale of
Mississippi, in faith in which these bonds
were taken, pays neither interest or
principal, and thus the Fealiody Fund is
deprived of the power to do one-third tho
good the generous donor intended and
gave tho means for. The CYurtuii says that
the trustee of the Pcahody Fund, in their
. annual statement, criticise and censure the
. fctate for its failure to pay what is duo. to
tho detriment of a good and noble work,
ltoth Uov. Stone and tiov. Lowrv were
urged by them to call the attention of the
State Legislature to the duty of making
provision to pay what was due to the fund,
but neither Governor did so. Year by
year, says tho Clarion, in the reabodv re
ports 'these bonds are alluded to and a
special appeal made for their payment
thus year after year Mississippi is ex
liibited as wanting in honor, and stigma
tized as a defaulter and repudiator."
This is a matter of too much im
portanco, the same paper believes,
to be neglected; if the claims are

withstanding the highest judicial decisions
to the conliary, the Clarion says, are gen
erally regarded as invalid and their repu
diation by the State as proper. The Clari
on adds: "The bonds whose payment id
a iked by the trustees of the Peabody
Fund are those of the Planters Bank, the
validity of which is conced d by many
who have most carefully investigated the
subject." An amendment to the State
constitution was made, the Clarion contin
lies, "for the purpose of hereinafter elim
inating the question from politics or legis
1 ition, but the question continues to in
trude itself, and we think demands the
attention of the next legislature.
We are of opinion that the matter de
mands the earnest and thoughtful
attention of the Legislature and the
State." This suggestion of the Clarion
is creditable to its regard for the
State's good name, but there is another
way of looking at the subject, and that is
t') regard the claims of the Peabody Fund
from a different standpoint to that of the
claims of speculators who have bought de
preciated bonds in the hope of getting par
for them. If postjioning the general
question of the validity of the bonds the
State would annually devote as much
money to educational purposes as is due
to the fund, and distribute the money as
the trustees recommend, the children of
the poor would not be robbed of the edu
cation they ought to receive because the
State and itfl creditors are squabbling
about the validity or invalidity of certain
bonds. The sacred and patriotic nature of
the Peabody Fund puts it out of the mere
grounds of financial understandings and
disputes, and the money that the State
was resonsible for when the Peabody
Fund was originated, and the benefits of
which Mississippi is itself receiving, ought
to be restored to the educational purposes
for which it was intended. If that can
not be done directly while unsettled bonds
are argued about, it should be done in
directly in the way we suggest, the trus
tees of the fund agreeing to give the State
full credit for the money, the disposal of
which was subjected to tlieir recom
According to the statements of a Cali
fornia correspondent of the New York
Pott, that State, as a producer, is in a con
dition of transition, and has been so ever
since the United Siates flag floated over it.
A little more than a century ago the Span
ish found the land tenanted by wild In
dians; they introduced cattle and sheep,
and the missions cultivated a few grapes,
which were almost the sole eatable vege
table production. Then came a trade of
exchanging furs and hides and tallow from
the herds of cattle that had multiplied,
for guns, powder and rum. The discovery
of gold, in IH'yO, quickly stopped this trade;
passengers, provisions and lumber arrived,
gold was carried away. The flour that was
consumed came from Sew York. When
a settler began to clear a farm on the
Sacramento, he was regarded as crazy
and laughed at. Now the harbors are
yearly crowded with ships that take away
tho vast yield of the bounteous wheat
fields, the plow having succeeded the pick
ax. There are now signs that the era of
wheat exportation is almost over, and that
the cultivation of it will be limited to sup
plying the home market and what can
reach New Orleans and Galveston by rail
road for exportation to Kit rope. The
water lines will be driven out and suc
ceeded by land carriage, in which the
Chesapeake and Ohio railroad will take an
inportant part, carrying products to New
port News, New Orleans and Galveston,
uid bringing back immigrants on low
onus, which will give the labor lost by
he absence nt the Chinese. Hut the time
is near when wheat will become a minor
matter of export. Iti Oregon, Montana and
Dakota wheat cultivation improves the
soil, in California it deteriorates it. In
the near future California will become a
and of fruits and vines, and the vine
yards, the vine-dressing and the merry
vintage will bring into existence a sort of
new France. Where 1, 000,000 spendthrift
niericans are living, ;!0,000,000 active,
saving, tireless Frenchmen would build up
vast wealth from tho kindly soil. In the
southern districts the lemon and the
orange yield their welcome fruit, and they,
added to the extensive vintages that will
n a while fill half the collars of the world,
will help to keep up the fame of California
for riches long affer the search for gold is
iveu up, and the sharp blows of the
st imping-machines have ceased from the
hills, and the glow of the sntelting-lires
from the villages are succeeded by the
songs and merry-making of the happy vin.

WABiiixaTox, December 20. Special to
the Cincinnati Commrraal Gazttle: The
presentation by Mr. Morrison of the ad
journment resolution, naming Monday as
the day, practically announcing that the
list of committees would not be ready till
then, is accepted as evidence that the
Sneaker has his hands full of serious work.
The prominent members on the Demo
cratic side, as well as those who believe
they are prominent, areengaged in a lively
Htruggle for recognition. Already H has
placed Mr. Morrison in a Democratic storm
center, as the Speaker has for some days
denied himself to almost every one but
Morrison, and it has put the latter before
his side of the House as the one mainly re
sponsible for the advice on which the
Speaker has acted.
Quite a number who have sufficient in
formation to cause the belief that they are
to be what they ca l "left," are beginning
to sneer at Mr. Morrison for his Presi
dential aspirations, of which they pretend
to see abundant evidence. They say be is
becoming dignified, silent and mysterious,
under the spell which is creeping over
him, and already his Presidential boom
has received a decided check. The scheme
of adjourning Monday is well arranged to
prevent much of an outbreak, for in the
first place a largw number of members will
not be able to resist the temptation to start
home this week, and in the next place it
was agreed that no business should be in
order after the announcement of the com
mittees, and so there will be two weeks
without a session, where members might
eather and rehearse their woes. In this
time a good many will cool down several
Another View or "Rill" Morrison" Am
bition. Special to the New York Tribune: "Xo
man need expect to get decent recognition
unless he is willing to say that 'Bill' Mor
rison is his candidate for the Presidency"
said a Southern Democrat to-day, who ex
pected a place on a prominent committee
which he finds he is not to receive. He
continued: "You need not be surprised if
little Perry Belmont secures the chairman
ship of Foreign Affairs, after all, instead
of Cox who deserves it and is dying to
have it. I think Carlisle wants to appoint
Cox, but Belmont is for Morrison for Pres
identat least Morrison thinks he is and
so, of course, Morrison is for Belmont.
When the committees are announced, you
will find that all the Morrison men are iu
good places." Other Democrats talk in a
like strain. One of them said: "I am for
the nomination of 'Joe' McDonald, and
when 1 voted for Carlisle I supposed he
was; but it seems that he is willing to let
Morrison helphiniself all he can at the
expense of the AfciT&nald men."
This remark seems unjust to the Speak
er, who is regarded as a sincere man, and
who is also looked upon as friendly to Mr.
McDonald's aspirations. The lielief is gen
eral, however, and to all appearances well
founded, that Col. Morrison is exerting a
most powerful influence in the composi
tion of the committees. So great, indeed,
that every man who suffers disappoint
ment will abuse him as the author of it,
w bile every man who is satisfied will give
Speaker Carlisle the credit.
But Col. Morrison is not the only Dem
ocrat in the House who aspires" to the
Presidency. A good many of the men who
favor theappointment of Mr. Blackburn
as chairman of the Appropriation Com
mittee, declare that to give Mr. Bandull
tho place is not only to olfer him the op
portunity he covets" to prevent tariff legis
lation, but also greatly to promote his pros
pects as a Presidential candidate, Some of
them say: "As chairman of Appropiia
tions Kandall will bo able so to strengthen
himself with the so-called 'business inter
ests' oi the country, by obstructing tariff
legislation, ns to gain their solid support in
tho National Convention and by paring
dow n the appropriation bills to proclaim
himself as the apostle of 'economy' in the
administration of the government."

Special to the New York World: A
prominent Blaine Kepitblican said to
night: "Do you know -Mr. Blaine is tbe
absolute master of the political situation
so far ns the Kepublicans are concerned ?
He is sitting back quietly studying the
political field, perfectly confident that the
Republican leaders must come to him in
the end."
"Is it true that Blaine intends to go to
the National Convention in Chicago as a
"lie maw At least it suits his purpose
well enough to have it so understood. The
mere mention of the fact has been enough
to take all tho color from t he faces of the
other candidates. The political situation
is regarded by Mr. Blaine as a very pecul
iar one. Ho does not regard the fiepubli
can chance as a particularly good one, and
believes that if the Democrats should pur
sue a conservative policy this w inter and
nominate a man of sound views upon the'
tariff question they would have long odds
in their favor. Now Blaine is not a candidate
and would not consent to take the nomi
nation from the National Convention un
less his terms of unconditional and hearty
support from all the Bepubliean leaders
should le given him. There is a general
fear of Blaine among tbe Republican lead
ers, and this fear is bringing them over for
the purpose of securing harmony. Grant
and Ixigan aro now friendlv to Blaine.
Conkling alone is not. That was all stuff
about his consenting to a reconciliation
w ith Blaine. He is out of politics, and
will not be counted in our present consid
eration. I take it for granted that Blaine,
Grant and Ixigan are in harmony upon the
one ground of their opposition "to the re
nomination of Arthur. Bevoud that there
need be no alliance. In the end everv-
thing must come to Blaine s hands. But
Blaine will not accept unless he is begged
to take up the Republican forlorn hope."
"Is that not a neouliar wav of nuttin' it ?
Conventions are not in the habit of beg
ging candidates.
"It will be true in this case. Yon will
witness this spectacle when June arrives,
and Blame will not consent to lead the
tight unless all his old foes bend their
knees to him in loyal allegiance."
'"Hut politicians do not kneel easily."
"Well, thev bad better begin nrnct'itting.
then, because they will need Mr. Blaine to
such an extent when June comes that
thev will be readv to give any terms Mr.
limine demands.
The above is the breeziest claim that has
vet been made in the interest of anv can
CniMlia'jtry for the Kcnnlicjn Tioxnlna
I ion In I HH4 - II I Opponent.
Special to the New York Herald: Many
signs concur to show that the sttuirle in
tbe Republican party next year will be
between President Arthur and Mr. Blaine.
By this it is not intended to sav that Mr.
Arthur is a candidate for the Presidential
nomination anv more than it is pretended
that Mr. Blaine is a candidate. Mr.
Blaine's friends assert pointedly that ha
will not have the nomination on any
terms, air. Arthurs lriends say they
nave no Knowledge in the matter, hut they
say thev believe if the partv would agree
to nominate torn he could be more easily
and certainly elected than anv other can
didate now thought of. The Republican
summon at this time is very singular. .Mr.
Arthur was nominated in ISNOasthe. "ma
chine" candidate. Ho was the favorite of
tien. til-ant in the interest of the then
Senator Conkling, and was so liereely
hated bv the anti-Conkling Kepublicans
all over the couutry that his nomination
for the Vice-Presidency almost produced a
mutiny. A number of furious Republi
cans were quieted only by tbe reflection
that lion, tiarrteld was a young and vigor
ous man, and that the Vice-President had
not even a remote chance of the succession.
That was in the summer of lsso, less
than three years and a half ago. To-day
tbe machine leaders in the party have al
most as strong a dislike of President A r
thtir as the other set bad wheu he was
nominated. So strong is this antipathy
that tien. tirant is ojienly quoted in pre
ferring eren Mr. Blaine to Mr. Arthur: and
as to Mr. Conklinc ho does not conceal bis
dislike of the President, with whom he
has for some time ceased to lie on even
terms of acquaintanceship. Gen. tirant,
Mr. Conkling and Mr. Blaine arc said bv
their several friends to be united in their
approval of the candidacy of Vien. I-ogsn,

something like a tragedy. 11 is term in the
Senate will expire March 3, and he
has, therefore, Wfore him the problem of
securing a Presidential nomination next
June without, in the meantime, flinging
away his chances for re-election to the
Senate in the winter in case he should not
become President- There are people who
say that it was cruel of Gen. Grant and
Mr. Blaine to expose Gen. Logan to temp
tations which may, unless he shows the
moat skillful generalship, land him where
those who attempt to sit on two stools at
the same time too often land.
It is odd that of the three Senators who
composed the notorious "Senatorial third
term syndicate" in 1879 and 1SS0 Mr.
Conkling is already iu private life; Mr.
Ikmald Cameron has ao entirely lost inter
est in politics that he is "pending tbe
winter in Kurope, and is not believed to
have any hopes of a re-election, his term
also expiring March. 1885; Gen. Logan,
the third member of the syndicate, turns
up as the anti-administration candidate
for the Presidency, with Gen. Grant and
M . Blaine as his ostensible backers, and
with a grave possibility of losing the meat
of the Senatorship while he is trying to
seize the big shadow of a Presidential
- The contest between the Grant-Blaine-Legan
combination and the administration
represents, in point of fact, a straggle be
tween the old .and more or less used-up
party leaders, who aim to regain control,
and the more conservative part, which is
well satisfied with Mr. Arthur's prudent
and unadventurous administration, sees
that he has given and is giving great satis
faction to the country, sad is pleased to
see that the eternal and disgusting politic
al squabbles which disfigured and dis
graced the administration of Grant, Hayes
and Garfield have ceased under Mr. Ar
thur. Those Republican leaders who object to
Mr. Arthur do not hesitate to acknowl
edge that he has made a good President for
the country, but they say that he is a
"poor President for the party." That
means, of course, that he has not advanced
their political fortunes ; that he does not use
orlices as party plunder ; that he has given
the country rest from injurious and mean
excitements. He has neither rewarded
friends nor punished enemies, they say,
and such a man quietly doing his duty to
me country ana making an honest and
economical administration, in their belief,
injures his party.
If those who think thus control the Chi

adopted, declaring hostility to the entire

The Kew Comedy by Judge Barrett. ef
new lorn, wua a i i lie iseieeta, a rsne
ceaa. Xew York Tribune, Wednesday: The
heroine of the little comedy is a lady who
has left the society of her husband be
cause she believes he has been unfaithful
to her, and because she is sure that,
whether unfaithful or not, ho has wounded
her in soul, and has become obnoxious to
her in all respects. After bavins; thus de
serted her married mate she has met with
another man, seemingly more to her taste,
who loves her, and whom she loves in re
turn. But uer husband although be de
testa her, and is a libertine, a rake, and a
scoundrel is not disposed to tolerate this
convenient abandonment, for. the reason
that it inflicts a wound upon his vanity
and deprives him of her fortune. Accord
ingly he has pursued and discovered her
in a rural retreat, and he now commands
her to return to their home threat
ening that unless she obeys he
will seiza her child, of whom the law,
in such a case, would give him the
custodv. In this dilemma she wou':d be
compelled to yield to her cruel destiny
and return to the matrimonial bower, but
it is fortunately made known and proved
that her husband has, in fact, broken his
marriage vows, and, under a false name,
wedded and abandoned another woman ;
so that his wife is now legally entitled to
her divorce, and can contract a fresh mar
riage of course with the new aspirant to
her vacated affections. These persons
and facts, displayed against a background
of domestic commonplaces, are associated
with a villa residence somewhere up the
Hudson river the household of a retired
merchant, with several friends of himself
and family, being slenderly attached to
the main scheme of the piece.
Viewed as a lesson in morals and in law,
An American Wife may justly be desig
nated as a salutatary piece. Its author,
apparently, designs "to imply that married
persons ought not to bo constrained to an
association which has become hateful, and
that infidelity and physical violence are
not the only causes that should be held to
warrant and justify divorce. But, prob
ably considering the infirmities of human
nature and the complications of human
society it would not be possible to frame
any systemsof law whereby the individual
might, in every instance, find relief,sith
out otfenseto the public good. An injured
wife or an injured husband can, under
certain .circumstances, got free from the
matrimonial fetter. Somewhat to enlarge
the scope of those liberating circum
stances might be to assuage many griefs.
Much to enlarge it would make marriage
a farce, and destroy the institution of
family upon which, mainly, the fabric of
society rests. That there is need of the
wisest legislation on this subject; that a
woman (-or a man) may be unjustly and
cruelly oppressed by the matrimonial
yoke, and may deserve relief without
being able to "find it; and that court
ship and marriusrc are far too lightly
regarded in these days, are, seemingly, the
truths which underlie the structure of this
play, and which may be said to constitute
the moral drift of its author. The piece is
therefore salutary. "Many people heed a
song who will not heed a sermon;" and
many, doubtless, might by means of a
drama have their attention drawn to ques
tions of vital importance which otherwise
they would pass with heedless indiffer
ence. In the story, and afterward th play
of Man and Wife, for example, YVilkie
Collins rendered a great service to his gen
eration as well as to literature and art. .
Viewed as a play, on the other hand, An
American Wife misses its mark, through
dullness. , The strongest moral that ever
wa3 brewed will not avail to redeem that
defect in a dramatic composition. Virtue
on the stage, especially in modern plays,
is almost always brought into contempt by
being made insipid; and this is an injury
to the public, and not a benefit. Words
are inadequate to describe the mischief
which has been wrought by (for example)
the Madison Square Theater series of
goody dramas. Innocently wrought, of
course, but not less certainly, for all that !
Judge Barrett's play of ..IwitTicm Wife
has been built upon sucn lines of mere
didacticism that it rises but a little way
above the level of theatrical mediocrity.
The story is trite, the characters are color
less, the movement is slow, the dialogue is
monotonous, the culmination is tame, the
slender plot is encumbered with much
needless detail, ami the conclusion simply
amounts to this that a moral which no
body disputes is urged in a way for which
nbody cares. Scenes such as occur in
actual life colloquies about nothiug,frolios
at a picnic, domestic talks, much writing
and reading of letters, telegrams, etc. are
indeed presented. But the photography
of commonplaces is even less interesting
than moral precept. It ought not ever to
be needful to remind a writer for the stage
that only the essentially dramatic aspects
of life should be selected for a play, and
that even these should be combined ac
cording to a due regard for the delicate
exaggeration essential to inspiriting effect.
Judge Barrett has written with excellent
intention, and liko the scholar that he is
so well known to bo. But his moral ideas
and his legal lore are in excess of his dra
matic invention, and, however much his
play may instruct, it fails to delight.
Translated and Adapted Tor tbe A merl
es Stage, Produced In .New York.
M. Adolphe Belot's melodrama Le Pare
de Paris, adapted and translated under
the title of Tlie Parementt of Pari, was
seen for the first time in this country on
Wednesday night at Xiblo's Theater. The
story of the play, though essentially com
monplat, is dexterously w orked up into
pleasing situations and brilliant climaxes
by the manner of action and the liberal
adjuncts' in tho way of stage properties
and scenic effects. "Marie," tlie heroine, is
the daughter of a wealthy countess, and
is sent into the provinces to be educated.
War breaks out, the Prussians invade the
district, and the child is supposed to have
perished in the general slaughter. Her
uncle w ill be the heir to a fortune in the
event of her death, and on-the covetous
nature of this uncle, Ihe necessary villain
to do the "removal" act and the future
welfare of "Marie" hinges the human in
terest in the play. It is the auxiliaries
only that possess merit in the first two
acts, but in the third the drama picks up
wonderfully, and the curtain goes down
on a good situation. The last act, how
ever, imparts cohesiveness and dramatic
unity to the piece, and gives assurance of
a successful run.

Fanfrelurhe was produced at the Renais
sance last night, contrary to all Parisian
traditions against bringing out a new work
on Sunday. Perhaps the management was
afraid to produce the piece before a traie
talle de premiere. The plot and action was
involved, and at times almost incompre
hensible, but the music throughout is
lively, elegant, and very taking. Jeanne
Crranier, in the double role of "Brezette"
and. "Panfreluche," was animated and
charming. She changed her dresses,
which were' superb, everv ten minutes.
Her toilette in the second net consisted of
a charming white china silk bodice, em
broidered in relief with a hundred tiny

applauded. M. Germain, as "Bijou," le

carried off by the regent's police, he
offered a passive resistance, 'recalling the

delicious air, and was hummed by a great
portion of tbe audience on leaving the

A startling innovation is to be intro
duced into the histrionic world in the
shape of a floating theater company. A
certificate was tiled in the county clerk's
oilice in Xew York incorpoi aline the com
pany, of which the trustees are Mr. Win.
It. Stone. Mr. S. (Jonant Foster, of the firm
of Otis A Co., Mr. Ross C. Stone. Mr. Rob
ert W. Fryer and Mr. Sydney Xeergaard.
The company's capital is placed at $l,0tX,
000, to be divided into 100,000 shares. The
tirst boat, designed by Mr. li. M. Fryer, is
to be built on the catamaran principle,
and the structure will be supported by
two steel cylinders of twenty feet each.
The diiiieesioiis will lie 276 feet in length
by sixty-nix feet in width. The motive
Kwer will lie a compound engine of 210
horse-power, w bile the draught will be
seven and half feet State-room accom
modations for a company of 100 will be
provided, while the seaUng capacity of the
theater itself, including parquet! e and two
balconies, will be for 1500 people. The
parquette is to be on the front oi the Tea
sel, taking op a little more than one-third
of its length, and the stage will be
in the middle. The engine-room, state
rooms and dining-rooms and kitchen will
occupy the after part. The boat is to be
built by contract in this city, and will cost
$250,000. It is to rejoice in the title oi
the "Gladiator.'' "We have the sympathy
of some very eminent theatrical "people,
said one of the trustees last night. "I may
say that thev are enthusiastic on the sub
ject. Our objact is simply this: There are
2,000.000 people outside - i Xew York and
Brooklyn, distributed in towns of from
10,000 to 26,000 inhabitants, who have no
opportunity of witnessing a good per
formance without coming to the great
cities. This is always inconvenient on ac
count of ths late return at night. More
over, great actors will not go to small
towns. Do you think Booth would playj
in is e war it 7 - lie would positively decline
to do so. We shall visit such towns as
Newport, Albany, Newark, Paterson, Ston
ington and Fall River, anchor alongside
the dock, and give them a first-rate per
formance, such as could never be heard in
the miserably-appointed theaters of such
towns. We shall have a regular stock
company, who shall live on the boat all
the year round. The appointments of
the- theater will bo simply sumptuous.
All that art and modern theatrical im
provements can suggest will be found
on board the tiladiator. We shall rival
Wallack's and the Fifth Avenue in point of
completeness, while our company will be
a second Madison Square troupe," and con
ducted upon exactly the same principles
as those which govern that theater. We
can move from place to place during the
summer months, but we shall keep the
company in action 305 days in the year.
The cost of rnnning it will' not be nearly
so much as that of managing a theater on
land. There will be no land taxes, and
we can therefore afford to build a very fine
boat and a theater which will be one of
the beat in the world. This will be only
our first structure, and we shall not ven
ture upon the ocean with it. Later on we
shall have boats to take in the Delaware
and Chesapeake bays. .We shall elect our
officers about the beginning of next week,
and next spring we hope to be able to
launch the Gladiator."

Stkwaktsville, N. J., December 17. On
what is known as the old road, standing
about 300 yards from the old burying-ground-s,
on the outskirts of this village, is
a dilapidated old house, one of the ancient
landmarks of this section. About the
middle of November strange noises were
heard to issue from its weather-lieaten
walls, and superstitious peoplesawstrange
lights dancing in the windows, and in
other ways convinced themselves that the
place was haunted. Some very sensitive
people claimed to have seen strange fan
tastic forms in stranger and more fantastic
attire holding high carnival in the place
at midnight, and in course of time the
gossips had invested it with all the weird
and unearthly traditions of "Alloway's
auld haunted kirk," or even worse places.
Children obliged to pass it on their way
to school invariably hugged the fences oil
the opposite side of the road, and even
grown people were glad to be away from it
as far as possible.
Sunday nit:lit beine an ausnicious one
for.investigation, according to the old le
gends, the moon shining through an oc
casional rift in the clouds and the wind
blowing in fitful gusts, two young men
started out fully prepared to meet "man
or devil," and determined to find out the
cause of the strange apparitions. They ar
rived on the grounds about 11:30 o'clock
and selected shelter in the corner of a
high board fence, which partially inclosed
the property on three sides. They watched
patiently for a couple of hours, and finally
invaded the place with a lantern for closer
inspection. They found that a harmless
ohl tramp had taken possession of the
place, ins occasional groans and grnnts
hail been magnified into demoniac shrieks
and his clumsy groping about in the dark
ness into midnight revels. At the armear-
ance of his visitors he shuttled ont through
a back door and took to tlie woods, and
the gossips at the country store have noth
ing icit to get irignteneu over.

A summary of the report shows that the

Capture of the Jiorderer of Brnee Hnnt.
Denver, Col., December 21. The ne

son of Ex-Gov. Hunt, at Durango, last
week, was captured Wednesday, on the
the Southern Vte reservation. As the
pursuers came suddenly upon him, about
daylight, sitting by a tire he had just made,
he'jumped and ran like a frightened deer
to a precipice forty feet high, over which
he leaped. He was found at the bottom,
terribly bruised, hot alive, and brought to
Durango last night. All talk of lynching
has subsided. Among the pursuers were
seventy-five Indians. The negro says lie
had tw'o accomplices injthe bank robbery,
but refuses to give their names.
Aboct two years ago my wife had a very
troublesome cough, of so serious a charac

deed, it seemed that we had but little to
hope lor, as the lungs were affected. We
tried various medicines, but very little
if any benefit seemed to be derived from
any of them, so that it appeared the dis
ease had complete mastery, and nothing
but death would bring relief. I was then
adyised to give Dr.D.Jayne's Expectorant
a trial, and doing so, to our surprise found
great benefit from its use. Persisting with
it, she gradually commenced improving,
until the principal symptoms disappeared
entirely, and she has enjoyed reasonably
