How Dr. Bcrtelgli Get Into Tsralle T Moncmgaiela In tie XemosaA. lunfaiff twmrmr roa the DtsrATCH.1 Tor 12 consecutive years I oecupied the position of Chief Clerk TJ. a House of Ecpresentatives. My term of service covered the most interesting period of our national history, embracing a portion of the war period and the whole period of recon struction. The House of Representatives during this time, in my .judgment, compared favorably in point of ability, not only -with the legislative bodies of other countries at any period in their history, but also with any of its own predecessors. It was con fronted with questions wholly unique, for Its guidance in the solution of which there were absolutely no precedents, and it was compelled from necessity to make pre cedents. Recourse was wisely had to those great principle of natural law which the Old Eomans, thoe masters of jurisprudence, al ways recognized a lying bnck of all consti tutions, institutions and forms of govern ment, such, for instance, as the great right of eelf-defense, .applicable in its operation alike to nations as to individuals, though never written in any human statute book, and, bv the pToper application of which to the exigencies of the times and the peculiar circumstances by which we were surround ed, we were enabled to suppress the mighti est rebellion that ever shook the earth, and preserve our national unity unimpaired, let us hope, for all coming time. The Congress of that period will be judged in history br the magnitude of the questions withwhict it has to deal, and the manner in which these questions were settled. Noted Names in Those Days. It contained many men of marked ability, some of whom were called to a higher service in the Senate and Executive Depart ments and have achie cd an enduring repu tation, and others 'a reputation that was ouite ephemeral, among the latter of whom was notably Tom Fitch, of Nevada, who burt upon the Congressional horizon like a meteor in a clear sky in a speech of surpass ing eloquence, but whose subsequent career has not justified the promise of its begin ning. There were others who came to the House with a reputation already acquired in other walks of life, but who added noth ing to it by Congressional service, among vhom were notably such eminent lawyers as Koah Davis and Lyman Tremaine, of yew York ,Judge Woodward, of Penn sylvania, and Henry J. IUymond, of the Sinus. "It is quite worthy of note, that the men who attained the greatest eminence in Con gress were those, with some notable excep tions, who came to Congress in their early manhood, unheralded by previous reputa tion. Theour youngest members, at th'e time I write of, were Garfield, Blaine, Alli son and llandall "the boys," as they were often designated, all of about the same age, mud all of whom have written their names Jin inefiaceable characters on the page of uiistQry. It is unlortunate, that, owing to the want of a competent fortune perhaps, there are so few oi the young men of tho country that can afford to enter upon the duties of public life at "Washington. Can't Aflbrd the Opportunity, The salary of a Congressman is manifestly inadequate to his proper support, and public opinion does not tolerate his taking advantage of any knowledge which the position gives him to in crease his fortune by even strictly legitimate methods. The result is that he often finds the situation inexpresibly gall ing. I know of no sadder sight thai that -that of a really able and useful member of Congress "shinning around" "Washington in search of a cheap boarding house, and yet to such bae uses have many come. And this recalls to my mind an amusing incident in the experience of a ptrsonal fnend, a member of unexceptional character from one of the rural districts of Pennsyl vania, whom I was assisting to find suitable accommodations. "We called at a fine-looking house, which had on its frost the well known notice of "Furnished rooms for rent" The member was highly pleased with them, and was about concluding a bar gain for them, when he happened to men tion that he was a member of Congress. The lady started back in apparent con sternation, and said: "Did I understand you to say that you were ft member of Con gress?" "Yes, madam." "Then I would not like to rent you my looms." "TVhynot?" "Oh, these members of Congress are a rowdy set, and have their friends in their rooms late at night, drinking and carousing, and I don't want them in my house." It was in vain that he tried to assure her that he was not that kind of a person. She was inflexible. John 3Iorrl8sey in Bbyme. Miles O'Keilly seemsto have fairly caught the spirit of the situation when he says, in the concluding stanza of his ode to John Morrissey: John Slorrissey, my Jo John, My heart wi' terror beats, For you're got into unco company, A gang o' patent cheats. You have lought and gambled felr S oan, But to Congress now yon go. And I fear they may corrupt you there, John Morrissey, iny Jo. There is a good deal of human nature ex hibited by the people's representatives in all its varied phases, and, if the men sent to Congress aro always, what they are supposed to be,true representatives of their respective constituencies, they afford strong proof of the trite maxim that "it takes all sorts of people to make the world." A correct' know ledge of theEnglish language might be suDposed essential in a representative of. a first-class nation, and yet the frequent "murdering of theKing's English" past the best efforts of the reporters to restore it to shape, shows that this is by no means re garded as an essential requisite. "The alle gation is false," said a distinguished repre sentative from Pennsylvania, "and the alie nator knew it was false when he made it." If there is any one thing for which many a member seems to prize a seat in Congress above everything else, it is the opportunity it affords for air ing some peculiar theory, or exhibiting the paces of some cherished hobby, and his con temptuous disregard of all the teachings of human experience, and sublime confidence in his ability,. to evoke something better out of the depths of his own personal wisdom challenge our wonder at least, if not our ap probation. The Man "With a Hobby. The facilitywith which such a member could adjust all the difficult and complicated problems growing out of the war, and settle the respective rights of the white and col ored races, and bring about that era of mil lennial peace when the lion and the lamb shall lie down together, without the lamb being inside the lion, was something marvelous. During the discussions in regard to a permanent financial system after the close of the war almost every member had a plan of his own, which was chiefly remarkable in that it differed from- every other man's, so that it was no wonder that an anonymous wrltter in New York sent a letter to Secre tary Richardson inquiring, "why the deuce don't you fix np this financial business? I nevermet a man yet who can't tell youhowto doit." The problem, it must be confessed, was somewhat perplexing. It was how the Government could furnish every man all the money he wanted, and yet not so in crease its volume as to diminish Its purchas ing power, and make it always redeemable in coin on demand. No wonder that one Representative went mad over it and had to be committed to the National Insane Asylum where he ended his days. The character of the House as to sobriety,' during the period of my connection with it was not of a character to meet with the un qualified approval of "The . Sons of Jonadah." Though there was a'joint rule of the two Houses which prohibited the bringing of any liquors into the Capitol, it was construed, by some members at least, as not prohibiting the bringing of it in their skins, "Prohibition did not prohibit,'' and this was especially observable on The Last Nlgbt of a Session. I '1 recall an amusing incident in this con nection. A ceatain member had managed to get drunk "clear through." He was the biggest man physically then in the Houe, and the drunk -was correspondingly large. He was very much bewildered at seeinc the sun shining through the ceiling about mid night, and evidently thought that the world, instead of himself, was standing on its head. He recovered his equanimity somewhat when I explained to him that it was the gas lights instead of the sun that he had been OD80CVing. The tendency to go wrong in this direction was corrected in great measure during the latter years of my term of service, by -the introduction of iced teaandlcmonade,under the sanction of the Committee on Accounts, but which was disallowed in the succeeding Congress through the influence of a granger Democratic chairman of the committee, who. regarded it as a useless extravagance, but who, it is said, would go over to the Senate, when he got drouthy, and regale himself at its expense, and so got credit for economy without anv-deprivation of his persona comfort The world is fulTof justi such re formers. Strengthened tho Lemonade. One of the best practical jokes ever per petrated upon Congress, -but which, strange as it may seem, was greatly relished by its victim") generally, was by Dr. Bur leigh, the well-known delegate from Dakota. He had received a present of a gallon of old Monongahcla whisky from some friend in Western Pennsylvania, and it occurred to him that it would be an act of sincere benev olence to use it in giving some strength to the lemonade, and managed surreptitiously to convey the whole of it into the big tub of lemonade in the cloak room. It so happened that the first member to take a drink of it was a gentleman well known as a most ardent opponent of "the ardent," and the effect of it was probably somewhat similar to that experienced bv Petroleum Nasby when Bascom fooled him with a drink of water the first he had ever tasted. Our Congressional friend was so outraged that he wag bent upon having an investigation to find out who the culprit was, and inflict condign punishment on him, which, however, Colfax, then Speaker, managed in some way to prevent until he could mate a private inquiry into the mat ter. Suspicion pointed strongly to Bur leigh and the Speaker took the first oppor tunity to interview him. Burleigh pleaded guilty, but with justifying circumstances. Tho Democrats Needed It He said he had traveled round the world several times, and, in the course of his four nevings, had encountered the smallpox, yellow1 fever, cholera and many other dis eases, all of. which he had escaped taking by the timely use of proper preventives; that he had observed some alarming symptoms among members of the House, particularly on the Democratic sideband a looseness in the proceedings generally, that called for very prompt action, and he felt it incum bent on him, as a man and a physician, to prescribe something that his personal ex perience had proved to be valuable in such cases; that he had therefore got np a pre scription in true medical style and phrase ology, and, that there might beTio mistake about it, had compounded it with his own hands. And this was the prescription as he gave It to Colfax, which it would be well for the readers of this article" to cut out and pre serve for future reference: Spiritus vini, several gallons.

In a day or two Bill comes up before Alderman Gripp for a hearing. Bill says smart things, ana so does Gripp,butin the end Gripp will say: "Bill, I fine yon 510 and costs, and commit yon to the work house for 60 days. Bill looks gloomy, but Nancy looks gloomier. She sees the pos sibility of losing JBill for 60 days, also the little bit of income he does bring her. She has a family of small children, and the next minute she relents and withdraws the suit Now, who is punished? v"hy, Nancy and the children, and possibly in, a very short time she gets another beating to remind her of it "But do you 6ee that iron pole out there?" and Mr. Marshall agtrfn pointed out of his window, this time to one of the poles of the electric railway, planted at the corner of Grant and Diamond streets. "Well, every time Bill beats Nancy he should be tied to that post and given so many lashes on the bareback. The next time he flares np and thinks of beating Nancy he will remember the beating he himself got in public, and I'll venture Nancy will escape her dose. At least, to have Bill punished she won't need to lose him for 60 days, and therefore she won't relent so easily." t mJBiLJIU CitronL several gallons. S&Charini, several pounds. Vaterlni, not a drop. Colfax exploded, and so did theproposed investigation. CuitTOir Lloyd. Copyright, 189L HJiW ATTTOUATTC P0STOFFICES. The Novel Enterprise Now Being Given a Test by London Authorities. The English Postmaster General has con sented to allow the Stamp Distribution Syndicate (Limited) to attach their auto matic machines forthe sale of postage stamps to certain pillar-boxes in the metropolis, thus giving the company in question a unique opportunity of securing the favor of the public by supplying a much needed convenience. So far Mr. Eaikes has per mitted an experiment, and nothing more; but there can be little doubt that, it the 20 machines which are in public use fulfil the ectations oi the syndicate, their use immediately become universal. 0 M i LUL The automatic machine which has been made for the Stamp Distribution Syndicate is a most ingenious one.' It is about 20 inches high and S inches deep, and can be affixed by screws to any pillar box, what ever its pattern or shape may be. At the top is a slot into which the would-be pur chaser of a postage stamp drops a penny. In a second or so the desired purchase is in his hands. The operation of extracting a stamp from the machine is complete in four steps. In the first place it is of course necessary to drop a penny into the machine though a two shilling piece will answer the purpose equally well. In the next place' the purchaser must pull out a handle at the side, and that handle must in the third place be slowly pushed back airain. Nothing then remains but to take np the stamp, which will be found at the back. The stamp, it should be added, is not servedin purls naturalibus; it is care fulry stuck in the cover of a small note book, the notebook itself being contained in a closely-fitting envelope. The customer therefore obtains not only a postage stamp for his penny, butalso a memorandum book which might in an emergency serve as a piece oT writing paper and what in the same emergency would prove an equally useful envelope. The Syndicate hopes to obtain its profits from the advertisements which find a place in the little book. Nothing but the test of public usage can show whether the machines are likely to work or not They have already been severely tested, and so far have not been found w-flting. Wheeling, TT. Ta.

Be Asis How the Keforms Suggested by Mr. Warner Could Be Brought About "Wlth , ont Giving Officials Powers "Which Would Often Result In Oppression. . As one of the Judges in the Allegheny county courts, Hon. Thomas Ewing has had wide exper ience in the punish ment of law-breakers. He was solic ited for his opinion .on the point raised bv Mr. "Wnmer. and he renlifid with thpsSf SPw vLKs following communi cation: In answer to your request for my views on Henry Warner's Eugges- jwiga Ewing. tions on penal reform, Lwould say: In the main features -his views commend them selves to my judgment His practical knowledge of the subject entitles nis sug tions to serious consideration by our law makers. There are two general classes of habitual offenders, who, when unrestrained, are in jurious to the community and usually do "no good tor themselves. First The vicious class who from in herited proclivities, evil associations and other circumstances, engage in no honest occupation, but whenever opportunity offers commit crimes against pcrsuu .mu piujjun. The proper course is to hide such men in prison as long as the law permits. It is only a question of the time of expiration of sentence as to when they will renew their course of crime. It is singular, but never theless a fact, that a large number ot tnese confirmed criminals are the most orderly and best behaved of prisoners, usually earn ing full commutations by their good con duct Second The clas who are not specially vicious by nature, but who having no power of sell-control, no habits of industry, be come drunken, disorderly, and often mere vagrants, and who, when out of prison,commit petty offenses, and who are of no use to themselves or to the community, except when under restraint by some power out side of themsehes. Their evil, worthless habits become fixed, and the hope of their reformation is so slight that it would be better for them and for the State to keep them permanently under restraint xne serious question is not tne theoretical one, but the practical one. All men love liberty, and especially desire it when deprived thereof. How can these reforms suggested by Mr. Warner be brought about without lodging in courts or police magistrates or prison authorities powers that would result infre quent cases of Injustice and oppression? Thos. Ewesto. THE EXPERIMENT TRIED. An Interesting Story of the British Colony for Convicts on Norfolk Island, and in Ireland A Turbulent, Brutal Hell Trans formed Into a Feaceable, Well-Ordered Community. "Such a colony of criminals would be a living hell. This was the remark of a lady who was privileged to hear the substance of the plan suggested by Mr. Warner. Her observation stimulated me to some research, and I find that many interesting facts are related in the article upon prisons in the International Cyclopedia, edited by Richard Gleason" Green. It states that the originator of the ideal system to which ourprisons are making gradual approaches called the system of progressive classification was the English captain, Alex. Maconochie, who, 40 years ago, perfected a system, and on his own ap plication was made Governor of the British penal colony of Norfolk Island, for the pur pose of putting it to a practical test There were then 1,500 convicts on the island, made np of the worst malefactors from Britain. Maconochie called his plan the "social plan of prison treatment" Its basis is the belief that a state of cheerful ness, hopefulness, and kindly treatment is essential for improvement and reform among criminals. His system proposes four main aims and methods, as follows: Points of 3faconochIes System. First A labor sentence instead of a time sentence, so that prisoners know at once that they can shorten imprisonment in propor tion to industry. Second To enable th"em to have their punishment further lessened by their good behavior, daily recorded and cumulative to their advantage, thus placing a constant premium on self-restraint Third By giving degrees of social liberty in proportion to the good use made of it, and encouraging the exercise of genial qualities. Fourth By giving the prisoner a part of me wuges oi ms xauor, to oe put in nis is calculated to lnsplroby at once mpos ingthe prisoners to be ready" for It, but divided the terms of their sentences into three periods. During the first, or punish ing, the men were subject -to close surveil lance and discipline. A Partnership of Criminals. At the expiration of thissterm they could divide themselves into companies of six, by mutual consent only, however. Each six were to have a common fund of marks, into which all their earnings were to be paid, and from which the fines of any and all that company must be 'paid. This is perhaps the most original reform of the whole system, and at once mokes the germ for the growth of all the qualities that are essential to a good member of society. Each man becomes interested in the industry and .good behavior of his associates in a manner so direct ana paipauie in every way inai tne effect of the voluntary partnership is to keep all the partners in a continual state of watchfulness and emulation, or of shame to the one who may be derelict to the interest of his immediate companions. Dishonest and selfish as they might be, they are thus made to feel that shirking by any one of them hurts all; so that a majority must all the time use a pressure' for industry and fair play. As they had no way of pun ishing each other for shortcomings, the con sequence was the creation of an honorable conception of mutual duty and forbearance. In the third period of the sentence the ird pc ) to be prisoner was to be thrown on us individual character and to be permitted under the same svstem of marks, or waees. to profit or lose for himself alone according to his indus try and good behavior. Were Allowed to Buy or Bell. In the island of Norfolk, where the experiment was undertaken, Captain Maconochie was able to add some privileges to the prisoner in the third term of the sen tence not practicable everywhere. He was allowed a nut and garden, pigs and poultry, which might be sold for his benefit to the ships that touched at the island. Thus by all these means'this great reformer taught the prisoners industry, appreciation of the right of others, the mutuality of rights and obligations in a community, sell-reliance and self-respect Me spent lour i 'years in this and thus states the result: "I found experiment, found the island a turbulent brutal hell; I left it a peaceful, well-ordered community." Sir Walter Crofton succeeded him, and organized the system more perfectly to adapt its discipline and methods to the average grade of the1 persons who have If lower level than would be required were such men as Maconochie in charge! Crof- ton's modified system, also divided into three stages of imprisonment, consists of: First A beparate imprisonment of eight months. ' , Second A reformatory stage propor tioned to the whole length of the sentence, in which the system of Maconochie is re tained in principle, but modified in adapta tion to give the prisoner a progressive or acceding position, and a larger and smaller share ot earnings, as he advances or fails in industry or conduct The Prison at Lust. Crofton also pnt his plans Into full opera tion in Ireland in 1851, where three separate prisons were provided to accommodate the graduate from lower to higher degrees. The ju si. was ill mi. u oy, anu tne seconu was on Spike Island. The third was the social evo lution of the cither two, and was located at Iiusk, 12 miles from Dublin. Thisprison at Xusk is the most remarkable fruit of the system. Here the prisoner has a degree of freedom that puts to test all his previously acquired self-control and self-respect There are no walls, prison bars or armed watehmen before his eyes; no prison arb, physical re straint or check in social intercourse. The prisoners are employed In groups, mostly on out-door farm work, in company '. with unarmed wardens, who work with them. They are not even restrained of lib erty of escape, except by the knowledge of the advantages to be gained by working to the ends of their terms and securing the pay ment of 'earnings in store for them. At tempts to leave before the ends of their terms have been rare among those who reach this stage of reform. The mark system, how ever, it is not continued at Lusk. The ap pearance of pupilage is avoided and men are made to feel .themselves a part of the com munity around them by attending lectures and public worship at the parish church, and in being trusted in various services out of the eye of any prison officer. There is no Shysical restraint to prevent their escape ay or night The number of inmates in the prisons just described, and their cost for the year ending 1874, was 1,130, and the net annual cost of each prisoner 22, 17s and Id. Systems of the United States. Concluding the article in the International Cyclopedia upon prisons, the writer says: "The United States as a nation has no great prison. Each State maintains one or more large establishments, conducted under many different systems, but in general tending to the 'social system of progressive classifica tion, and mating more or less progress toward it Each city also has its special prison. The association of prison man agement with politics, and the facilities in some States for prison officials to have a considerable patronage at their disposal, in cluding tne contracts ior tne iaoor oi tne prisoners, is the most unlortunate feature of United States prison systems. I ' "State Legislatures tend to the most ha. possession on leaving the institution, or to go to his family, and preparing him to re sume a decent place, in society, and showing confidence in him and releasing him from restraint in proportion as he develops self respect and disposition toward good citizen ship. Thus the prison life is regarded as one in which the convicts are to be re-reared as a family of peculiar childrenj each of whose peculiarities was to be considered. It is as sumed that the worst traits in a convict do not prove him devoid of seme good ones, and that the incentives to good life should be made much greater and more pleasant than to a bad one. The System of Marks. The testing, of his system began by "offer ing the convicts pay for their work by marks, with which marks, when earned:, they could buy their own food, clothes and other necessaries, and form a surplusto be credited to their liberation, on the supposi tion that they are sentenced to a specific number of days' labor, or marks. He fixed ten marks as the equivalent of a day's labor then paid by the piece, and not by time.and for every ten T"vlf saved the term of Im prisonment was lessened a day. Prisoners could buy their own provisions at three different rates, paying for them in marks at the supply store of the prison. The poorest fare cost three" marks, the' next four, the best five. Thus the zeal for free dom would stimulate not only industry, but the utmost self-denial and economy. Over work was paid for in extra marks, and mis demeanors of any kind were subject to a fine in marks. .The mark record of prisoners was thus at the same time their industrial and moral spur and their savings bank. He did not attempt to bring about the emulation and ambition which this s; stem mane and tnougntiut 11 Derail ty in providing for the accommodation and reformation of criminals; so that when prisons are making little progress toward the ideal which Mac onochie and Crofton have proved entirely practicable, it is because the officials and managers themselves are not the right men in the right place."
