Hunger is a great revoluliotiizer. Soup
kettles are provided in various part! ol
the city, for gratuitous supply of the in-
diircnt. But the soup dot. 'I seem to go

it npp' .ired us though everybody had eiz
ed on this opporiuni'y to attempt to ge
rid of his dog; any q'.unti'y of the canine
race of all kizc4lud (jtialkies might have
been bought dog-cheap in that vicinity;
the theatre manager, was of course, rathei
annoyed at being the involuntary center of
such a singular gathering.
New York seems to have become the

since, armed and (quipped, it wus sup
posed for Cuba. They have Ltcly turned
up at St. Thomas, under arrest by the

At half pait our, the coffin was placed

A cloud has settled over all our week

behalf of the gentlemen attached lo the
Third Auditor's Office, addressed the
committee as follows :
Gtntlemm: To jou, who have patient
ly and laboi iolisly guarded the body of our
deceased friend from the wilds of the far
West, we t in commit it, to be conveyed
to his mout.. 'in home in Sou h Carolina.
where his family is, and where his affec

cannot "soothe the dull, cold ear of death,"
und therefore will not be in place here ;
but we cannot let this opportunity pass
w ithout telling yon, gentlemen, that yor
have leen iho wen with whom Col. Bu r
was in official connection for upwards of
a year; aud that among thein all, he left
none but friends when he severed those
official ties that unite! us, to take the du.
lies of Governor of Nebraska upon him
self at the request of the President of the
United States. We all parted with him
with regret: but our best wishes went
with him for lite. You will please make
this fact known to his family.
His journey to the West was but Ids

months since he uhse.nbled us legether to

To which Col. Ward B. Howard, of

plied as follows :

I can assure you, gentlemen, that such re

THE 8XWII0 OIRL.
Hard Times comes to the sewing girl
when the rest of the .working world
t' ought the limes wcro easy. From im
mrmeri.il time she has wrought faithfully
and li ken little money for it. But ther.
business generally grows stagnant, and
rn'Miey becomes unusually senrce, the poor
sewing girl experiences ns sad a depres
sion as if it were a reverse in her rasa
uUo. It is as we all know a touch timo
for her at the best. She wearily stitches
f rotn morning to night to earn a pittance
thai will scarcely pay decent board even
though work never falls o!T. But when
men find money scarcer they buy fewer
clo'hes, and if the wholesale business is
depressed a fraction she is told hc can
not have "steady work."
This Fall, prices have gone down too.
On coats for Ihe Southern market they
arc paid two shillings less than on the
same garment last fall, and n similar de
crease effects wages for other articles of
clothing. These changes for the worst
come very hard upon the girls. Yery ma
ny of them support widowed mothers and
orphaned sisters nd brothers. Their one
needle is to enrn not a living only for
ihemselves but bread for a family, coal
for the household, and to meet beside the
monthly demands of inexorable landlords.
We meet them wrapped in their thin
shawls daily in the streets looking as if
their frail bodies were poorly able to stem
the tide of necessary expenses that will
roll down upon any family, even the smal
lest, that attempts lo winter in New York,
Grappling with a hard world's trials daily,
there must be a curse ready to light upon
his head w ho without good cause deducts
from their small wages or with contempti
ble meanness throws a lrnw in the way
of their making the little they can make
as earily as possible. But many mer
chants who employ them think it no dis
honor lo make them come three or four
times to ihe shop for work which was
promised them at the first call; and if
with eyes sharpened by the prospect of
gain, an uneven s idi can be found, they
bor.st that they deduct largely from their
wiges. Shtme on the fellows who be
have so ungalUntly. They fuwn'with dis
gusting obsequiousness to a pert miss who
bears about her person the tokens of her
exiravagance in dress, but when those
hard-working daughters of Lonevt and
ambitious toil are left to run up nnd down
Jie. streets, wasting time that is exceed
ngly precious to them, to get the jobs,
heedlessly promised to be roac'y many
days before, they excuse ihemselves with
the remark, "Il is only a shrp-girl; sh
can come again." The shop girl is as
worihy of her Lire as any laborer, and he
is shamefully dishonest who adds an un
necessary step to her tedious walk lo get
it, or scrutinize her work more closely
than he is w illing that his own should be.
c;
of Nebraska, he has left an impression
even there, long to be remembered. On
the funeral occasion the day after his de
cease, at which this Committee were pres
ent, the remarks of hi successor, ihe Sec
retary, Mr. Cuming, Chief Justice Fer
guson, und the Rev. Mr. lL.millon, who
had attended Lim throughout his nfflic ing
illn ess, (as did also two of this Commit
tee) I say, the rem u ks of those gentle
men on that occasion were such as lo cal
forth tears from ;-.ll who were present,
including a large concourse of the wild
savages of the west. '
If so brief un acquaintance should thus
impress strangers, how much more grati
fying must it be to the afflicted family and
relatives to receive such testimonials of
respect to his memory as we have wit
nessed in din transit through the City of
Washir.g'eu where he once lasided, and
now receives from hn earthly and per
sonal friends in the Capitol of hi native
State.
Permit me, gentlemen of tho Common
Council of this City, to close my remarks

the Committee and the kind sympv.Lie.i
