TO CLASSIFY THE LAWS. The ork that the Commlstlun Ap pointed Yesterday la to Do. A TALK WITH MR. LOVEJoT THE COSETSED STATE or LAW* PREVALINO HERE ?THE OLD MARYLAND STATUTE*- THE LAWS NOT TO BE CODIFIED BCT ARRANGED IN CONVKNItNT FORM. It was stated in yesterday's Star that the Court in Generul Term has appointed Messrs. W. Stout Abert and B. O. Lovejoy. of the Dis trict bar. to compile the laws of the District. This action was taken under authority of an act of Congress approved March 2. 1*19. which di rects the Supreme Court of the District "to ap point two persons learned in the law as com missioners to compile, arrange, and classify, with a proper index, all statutes and parts of statutes in force in the said District, including tlie acts of the second session of the 50th Con gress. aud relating to all such matters as would properly come within the scope of a civil and criminal code; and the said court shall have power to till any vacancies occurring in said commission." The law further provides that "each of the said couinn -loners shall receive for his services such sum. not exceeding Tl.fiO?. as said court shall deem reasonable: said sum to be paid upon the completion of the work and the approval thereof in writing by the court; which sums, together with the reasonable costs incurred by tlie commission for clerical assistance and in cidental expenses. not exceeding the sum of ?1.0*10. shall be paid by the Secretary of the Treasury out of any moneys not ottu rwise ap propriated. one-half to be paid out of the rev enues of the District of Columbia: that of said compilation, when completed, upon the order of the supreme court of the District of Colum bia. ther> shall be printed 5.000 copies at the government printing office, said copies to be sold at 10 puree ntum above cost." A TALK WITH MR. LiOVEJOT. Mr. Lovejoy said to a Star reporter last eve ning that he had not been officially notified as yet of his appointment. The work of the com mission is not. he said, to codify the laws of the District. " In a general wav a code means." he said, "the collection of the body of existing law. their condensation and modification. When adopted it becomes the law. llut the dntics of the commission in this instance, as defined by the law. is to compile, arrange and 1 classify ail laws in force in this District. That j is a laborious work, and is so because of the j anomalous condition of affairs in this District. , V?. have more common law in this District , tii.in l- in for.-u anywhere else in this country ] or in England. Ali Mh old Knglish laws appli cable to Maryland as a colony are in force. | All the colonial statutes and the statutes of Maryland np to the time of the cession of that p.?r!n-:i of Maryland lying within the bounds of th- District to the I'nitt d States! In the session j of the District to the I'nited Stales, which oc- j t arred .n lit?, it was provided that all existing i la a s of Maryland should contiuue in force until repealed or modified by Congress. This has I never been done. All the old body of law in j fon t in Maryland in the last centurv has been j continued with such additions asTongress has from year to Tear made. These latter laws are contain* d in the Revised Statutes for the Dis trict of Columbia. The burden which this condition of affairs has laid upon the court and lair, the confusion and uncertainty which ex ists. has Wen frequently represented to Con K'i-si.. Various attempts have been made to induce Congress to adopt a code for the Dis- | trict .is has be* n no generally done in the states. I think no less than five orders have I been prepared, but Congress has failed to 1 adopt item. The classification of the law. if th-- work is properly done by the commission, will bring together from the different sources I i:av indicated the entire body of the laws applicable to the District. It will, as I have S....I. involve a great deal of work and the ex amination of all the English statutes from the settleim nt of Maryland, all the colonial laws and ail the Maryland laws down to the cession of the District. Then the laws passed by Con- I gress for the beginning down to the present 1101 e. MANT Books and MTch work. "Under the present conditions." continued Mr. Lovejoy. "a District lawyer in preparing a caw is obliged to consult the English books for the interpretation of Knglish statutes in force here, the Maryland t>ooks to find out the mean ing of the Maryland law atul then the U. S. Statutes at Large to ascertain the meaning of the I'. S. Staflites in force here. As you may , readily understand from this very imperfect and hasty sk. tch of tin field of the laws appli- I cable to the District the judges and the lawyers ] must have at hand a large collection of books and consume much time in ascertaining what the law really is. The present measure Willi have the t tfect of simplifying th:s work and bringing together in compact form the body of ' th> law. Next to a code it is the best thing j that could be done." As to the time that would probably be occu- ' pied in the work Mr. Lovejoy said that he thought it would take a year. From Washington County. WHAT IS IMI50 ON IN HAllEKSTOWN AND VICINITY ?

An Interesting Question for Moralists to Consider. Fp>|j' tbe .San Frati'-isro Sew* Letter Is the world wickeder than in the days of onr forefathers? in a <|U< stion that frequently pre sents itself to the thoughtful mind, and one that is often discussed by the moralists of the day. We have been asked our opinion on the subject. and therefore will try to consider it justly and impartially. I* vice more apparent? Yes, and no. In the time of Lonis XIV of France and Charles II of England, the court life of botn of these monarchs was one of un bridled profligacy, but it was confined to the court and its followers. We read of as high standard of private virtues in those days as in any other before or since. In fact, it must be always so. that a glaring exhibition of dissolute habit* brings a counter action and revolt and disgust, fully verifying l'ope's well-known lines: Vice is a monster of so fritrUtful luien. That to be hateU needs but to be seen. So far as the example shown by the higher classes, sorely at no time since th? days of ali en nt luxury and license have thrre been more striking illustrations of immorality than exhib ited by the court life of the Second Empire of France, and the doings of the present I'rince of Wales and his coterie. Therefore, we say ??uo" to the question. "Is the world wickeder now than ever before?" Where we answer ''yes'" is that vice is more apparent? in our land, at least?by the coarse ness with which it is paraded. In older coun tries and more polished circles, refinement and culture gilt and gloss over irregularities of conduct and morals. Here, 011 the contrary, it is gold alone that serves to gild in such glaring tints the offenaes committed against propriety, and even decency, by tin- possessors of coin. It only serves to make the wickedness more distinct, until people have grown to think and act as though millions of money, like charity, cohered a multitude of sins, and the social crimes of the rich are condoned bv society where ostracism would be the penalty of the poor. There is the whole matter in a nutshell. The vulgar itourtau richr considers he may sin against every code of morals and rrmvetumee, if only he (or she? pays enough for their so do ing to grant them immunity from censure. We think these lapses from a straight path and conventions! line of action, that so often become the telk of our community, are the more disgusting from the fact that they are pa raded before the public gaze with a coarse in difference which would be absolutely shocking in any city of the old world, and not tolerated by polite society. '1 liat immorality pervades the highest circles in Europe is true, but it is at least veiled under the semblance of decency. /The proprieties are strictly looked to and maintained, but with us they are thrown aside. The "go-as-you-please" gait indulged in by husbands and wives is an outrage upon purity or morals. Then. too. another great cause of the wickedness of the day may be found in the society literature, where uncontined. untrammeled nature (!) is taught to be the mark of originality and genius, ltooks deal with topics which in our grandmother's days would have brought a blush to the cheek of an old stager. Ques tions are boldly discussed by men and young women of which said young womeu ought to be in profound ignorance. Look at the so ciety life of to-day. Enter any draw ing room, social gathering or quiet home circle. What topic is most generally in conversation? (iossip. Does art or scit lice ever find place in the talk? is a high standard of principle and life, both public and private, held up as the re quirement for position and esteem? Is it not rather true that success, whether political or social, is awarded the brightest smile, most cordial approbation. 110 matter by w hat means it has been won? I'urity of mind and morals is regarded as something one used to read about and theorize of 111 glowing terms. But, alas ! one does not even read of such things now. Ap parently the more impure the fiction of the day the greater the sale of the book. The charge is sometimes made that men Bre not as courteous to ladies as they should be. If this be so. is it not the fault of the ladies themselves? The gentle deference and rispect shown women in past ages cannot be expected when the freedom of speech and freedom of action allowed our young girls result in a loose ness of tone in the social system deplorable U> view. Unless a woman respects herself she cannot expect to receive that tribute from men. and so long as the lax code of morals exhibited 111 the present day fashionable life obtains, one cannot stop to query. "Is this the wickedest stage the world has reached?" The lii'lirins'sSra Proclamation. AMERICAN BIGHTS D!S,TSSKD IX THE CANADIAN SENATE. In the senate at Ottawa. Out., yesterday Mr. Macdonald. of British Columbia, interrogated the govt rnuient regarding the recent procla mation of President Harrison respecting Behring's sea. Senator Mclnnes, also of liritisli Columbia, read an editorial from u United States paper to the effect that one-half of Behring's sea belonged exclusively to the United States. In conclusion, he urged the government to ask the imperial government to settle the question at once ami forever. Mr. Kaiilbach spoke in a similar strain. Mr. Mc Innes interrupted him to state that the United State* had put forth a pretension iu 1X87 to ex clusive priv ilt ges in the sea, and had seized liritisli vessels. Mr. Abbott, leader of the government, said he did not understand the proclamation to assert any new right by the United States, or any right over Behring's sea. He believed the American government contended that certain portions of IJehring's sea were exclusively under American jurisdiction. The Canadian government would continue to act in accord ance with the opinion of Lord Salisbury. The just demand of British subjects for compensa tion for damage done by these illegal seizures' would not be abandoned. f ? . lSruwn County's Wonder. A TE5-YEAR-OLD Bo* WHO IS A PERPETUAL CAL ENDAR. yuiury (111.) S[*cial to Cliicwro Tribuue Drown county has a prodigy in the shape of a ten-year-old boy with a talent for days and dates. Hoy Odenweller. son of Mr. S. 1*. Oden weller, of Industry township, is the infant wonder. Give him any date in any month of this year, last year, or next year, and he can at once tell you the day of the week upon w hich it falls or has fallen. For example, ask him 011 what day of the week will the 17th of October, lnxy. fall, mid he will promptly answer "Thursday," which is correct. And so of any date of last year or the year to come. How he arrives at the solu tion he does not know. Numerous gentle men of undoubted veracity have repeatedly tested his strange power. The little fellow is a bright youngster, but does not exhibit any unusual precocity lievond this peculiar lft. He says that boonil the three years?the urrent. the last, and the next he cannot give Correct answers. Next year he will lose all power over IS** 1 with which he is now conver sant ?. and his mind will grasp that of 18111, of which he now knows nothing. He has no rule or method, nor does he know how he arrives at the true answer, but it is certain that he is cor rect when answering. ? ? Arguments for the I'urnellites. In the argument before the I'arnell commis sion in London yesterday. Sir Charles Itussell contended that the objects of tlu- Irish Na tional league were justifiable before God and man. The issue before the commission de pended upon proof that Mr. Parnell and his colleagues, under the cloak of a land move ment. had planned murders and outrages. If 110 such evidence was produced, the commis sion must declare the accused to be men who were earnestly endeavoring to lift an intoler able burden from the shoulders of their countrymen. The examination of Mr. I'arnell has been fixed for 'l'uesdav next. Hi ? The Soubrettc's Kevenge. From Doalap's SLatfe Ne At The cleverest soubrette on the London stage had a magnificent black cat. the admiration of all who saw that "Enemy of the Evil One." One night an ungallant lord, her neighbor, cruelly shot the cat. and a few tlays after she received the stuffed skm of her pet. Miss Sou brette immediately colltcted ail the mice she could secure -about two hundred -and had them carefully boxed to the address of his lordship's wife in the country. When the box arrived at its destination her ladyship opened it herself, expecting it to contain some of the latest fashions. As she raised the lid the mice jumped out and literally filled the house. Of course there was consternation. At the bottom of the box was a note, which read: "Madam, your husband killed my cat. I send you our inice." *?* ? Good Prospect* or Peace is Hayti.?Mr. Haustedt, of Jemmines, Haustedt A Co.. the New York representative of Hyppolite, said yesterday that it wna very probable that peace would soon be declared in Hayti. Information lias reached him. he said, that the commission recently appointed by Legitime to visit Hyp polite and bring about au end to hostilities had seen tbe leader of the north. Hyppolite had expresaed himself as well pleased with the terms submitted by Legitime. Within a week Mr. Haustedt expected that Hayti would be at peace. DOES HOUSEKEEPING PAY? What a Western Society Ijady Has to Say on the Subject. In nine cases out of every ten. ves. savs a lady of fashion in the Pittsburg iJearlrr. Un fortunately. when visiting friends who have not the nerve to hamper themselves with house hold rare*, I have found that boarding is sim ply a method of shifting all domestic duties I upon the genial boarding-housekeeper. I have met several of the species, and from my heart j I pityi and at the same time hare a thorough contempt for them. Your comfort is to them an unknown quantity; ail they desire of vou is to remain invisible only at meal times, and at the proper time present your check, or its equivalent. ? Last summer I was obliged to place myself lJ?,.?r obligations to one of this class whom I uialiked at first, and positively hated before I left her hospitable roof. Naturally, one does not expect anything of a home-like nature in a ooarding-house (I am not speaking of an np :?wln. hotel), but I was ignorant, and thought that in exchange for the. to me. big price paid for room and board I should have pleasant quarters and plenty to eat. A BOABDINQ-HOCSE experience. My room (by no means situated in the center of the metropolis) was the second story front and boasted of an antediluvian bed lounge, a curious and deceiving folding bed that one# ? i me UP strong embrace, and had I not been a person of rather strong will power X might have still been there. However. I 1 escaped with a few bruises and a decided anti- [ pathy to folding beds. A queer wash hand stand, with a dresser to match, a few chairs with playful tendencies, an impossible carpet ! billiard table completed the furnishing i of the room, unless I mention a chandelier of | several beautiful globes and glittering pend- < ants, but, alas! no gas after 10 p. m. However. I I would not let a little thing like that disturb me, for the city authorities kindly keep the street lamps burning all night. Now, for this elegantly(?) furnished room, with three meals per day?oh! what meals, and how glad I was to get back to my own humble pie again?I paid the sum of .f 15 per week. I maintain this to be an outrage upon an innocent, confiding American citizen. ON THE OTHER HAND. To come down to actual figures. <?15 per week, or ?60 per month, will pay house rent, and keep both butcher's and grocer's bills within proper limits for a small family of three or four. The amount expended for one person for one week in a boarding house, sans comfort, sans prop erly cooked meals, will, if expended rightlv. give peace and happiness to four times tlie number, if the house mother is careful, pru- I dent and, most difficult task of all, economical. ! l'he way to a man's heart is by means of his j palate. Never a truer saying; "and unless one can afford living in a hotel-thereby paving extortionate prices, offset, of course, by ob taining everything the appetite craves?I would seriously advise married people to keep house. Boarding is a necessity to many; in fact it is imperative in cases where the wife is unqualified through illness or natural inapti tude. Every woman should look forward to marriage as the means of making home happv to the one whom she loves the best. The iirs't step towards creating this paradise is not bv engaging a suite of rooms in a fine hotel, but by going to a house, cottage or Queen Anne mansion, it matters not which, and there set the household gods in order and begin the foundation for a happy life. Things will go wrong at first, fearfully wrong at times, but if the fair young bride has patience and the gal lant groom discretion. I'll engage with a parlor cook book the machinery in that household runs smoothly within six months, and boarding will be an unmentioned subject. BUFFALOES OX TIIE~CARS. An Old Bull Undertook to Act us Mas ter of Ceremonies. From Forest and Stream. On the 15th ultimo half of the herd was driven across the prairies to be shipped to their new home; the balance, numbering about fifty, it is understood, will not leave before March next, llie buffaloes themselves had a strong aversion to leaving their old homestead, and considerable difficulty was experienced in get ting them aboard the cars, two days being spent in the effort, hundreds of citizens wit nessing the exciting scenes attending this dan gerous job. Half a dozen expert horsemen, be sides a number of cattle drivers who had loaded hundreds of wild western cattle, found they had a more difficult task before them when en deavoring to load buffalo; however, bv a strategic movement, thev were eventually got into the pens of the cattle yards of the Canada Pacific railway company. How to get them to walk the gangway was a still more serious matter. The infuriated and maddened beasts, when they found themselves caged, commenced to have a little "circus" on their own account. Home terrible combats took place between j them, and when the enormous size and strength of these animals are considered, one can con- : jecture how high one of the younger ones ! would be thrown in the air when caught on the horns of one of these mighty bulls. Every conceivable effort was made, but to no purpose, in endeavoring to get them in the cars, prods w ith sharp-pointed forks, lashes that would almost cut a sheep in two. seemed to be appreciated as a tickle in the ribs or a gentle caress. Eventually a tremendous old bull undertook I to be master of ceremonies, and succeeded i alter every effort of man had failed. There was nothing new in the manner he did it. he only did what buffaloes have done from time immemorial when working up a stampede. He got behind the herd and began making it ex tremely lively for those ahead, prodding, bel lowing at them, and driving the laggards for ward with vigorous digs of his horns in their haunches. They had to travel, and, having no other place to go. they passed over the gang way and into the cars. When the "big pusher" (as the crowd dubbed him) had driven them all in and reached the door himself he seemed to be astonished. This was the most extraordinary stampede ho had ever engi neered. Tossing his head scornfully he wheeled about and ran back into the pen. He next accomplished the feat of jumping a 10 foot fence, and. seeming to like it, bounded from one pen to another, clearing or smashing everything in his way, until he reached the board fence which bounds the west side of the yards. This paling is 14 feet high, but he jumped at it, struck near the top, went through with a crash, and steered for home a much agi tated bull. The Latest Fad In Neckwear. From tlie London Fitraro. Have you noticed the very newest thing in the way of gentlemen's evening ties? The idea suggested is, that having forgotten to purchase a tie, it was necessary to improvise a novel one out of a pocket-handkerchief, but they are quite the latest thing, so. of course, they are charming in their originality. It is the thin edge of the wedge, the wedge being the old fasliioned stocks of our grandfathers. These new ties are the ordinary width of a white even ing tie behind, and then they get gradually broader as they come to the end. When the 1 bow is tied?it should have a very tight middle ?the broad bows and broader ends stand out considerably. and help to make a substantial finish at the top of the shirt. *?* .
