Chat the postmaster had been running
short for twelve months past, and dis
regarded entirely tho request of the
postmaster general to settle up, but
thought he could make better use of
the money himself. The result was
that when the books and accounts
were cast up, the postmaster was found
short about 18,000, which will be made
good by his sureties, all of whom, with
one or two exuepuous. upe uuie-ouuicu

wo found a tract of ground one hun
dred -by two hundred feet with a grad

and substantial panel fence, ciiriosiiig
the olllco building, the factory build
ing, the quarters for the workmen and
tho stable. After a reception by the
proprietors, which would have electri
fied brother Xowton, of the Signet, we
were shown tho enigma of soap mak

six hundred gallons of lye, with due

the admirable nerve and unflinching

over to thu olllce, passing the quarters
for tho factory men, which were com

office cosy and nicely cqulped for the
clerical duties of the business.
Messrs. Cotter & Lachappello have

The committee appointed for the pur
pose begau yesterday the work ot
counting the tags which aro to go into
the great wheel at the drawing for the
benefit of tho public library of Ken
tucky, March ill. These tags aro oval
pieces of leather, all cut precisely alike
by the sumo die. They arc an inch
and a half in the greater, and three
fourths of an Inch in the lesser diame
ter. They are made of leather so as to
stand the friction to which they are
subjected iu the revolutions of the
wheel which mixes them. Numbers
are printed upon them with huge type,
so that they ,'ie easily seen. One of
those tags is put into the wheel for
every ticket sold. There will conse
quently be OiyiOO of (hem used at (he
31st of March, and they will be num
bered from 1 to (J0,0l 10.
Tho committee are governed by the
most rigid rulea in tho count they
make and tho care they take of the
tags. They have a room for their work
to which there are sepcrato locks, and
to which one can not enter without
tiie others. They must all go in togeth
er, and work together and come out
together. And, when their counting
is done, they stow away tho tags under
sepcrato locks, and superadd thereto
the guard of seals, which aro only
opened at the time of placing the tags
in tho wheel. With such scrupulous
care a mistake is impossible, and all
who buy tickets may rest assured that
their numbers will bo represented by
tugs in the wheel at tho drawing.
It is hardly necessary to add that
this committee consists of gentlemen
who aro in 110 way connected with the
public library in any of its depart
ments. They are disinterested citi.ens-
whose duty is to see that every ticket,
holder has a fair and equal chance for
the prizes. That this will be done the
eniiiiont cljaraufor and spotless integ
rity of tho committeemen are sufficient

doubt but this magnificent zoological

popular favor, and that its performan
ces give the most unbounded and uni

not only extensive and well selected,
but embraces many rare and heretofore
unseen specimens from the luiimal

bear, pumu, and monkeys and birds,
are particularly lino. This part of the
show is attractive, and affords lessons
of useful instruction to students of nat
ural history, and, in fact, everybody.
The circus part of the programme is
given by a double corps of performers
in two riuirs at the same time, and
embraces many old and web-known
celebrities. .Among them will be found
