The testimony taken by tH4 Chinese Commissioner in Ban Francisco in reference tt the shoe trade was very interesting. On October 28th a manufacturer testifieJ that four years ago the average wages of journeymen guoe makers ranged from $24 to $30 a Week, whereas at present tbty are able to earn only from $16 to $18 a week. This reduction he aUritJbteU to the employ ment of Chinese joiirceymeu. ..The price of Chinese labor in San Francisco, he said, was on a level with that of white labor in New England. As assistant forewoman in a factory in Which 300 Chinese journeyman were hired; slated that 23 young woman were also employed on upperf. They did not like to work with the Chinese, but starvation was the alternative. There are hundreds of unemployed white women in the city who wonld gladly take the place oftht Chinese, and they could certainly work with greater rapidity. Ladies! Your attention a moment!

Hayes sets a pplendid example to his friends by his calm dignity aud readiness to accept the will of the peo ple. Gov, Tilden would but do his duty If ho would put a stop to the reckless mischief-makers among his followers who blantantly insist that returns which do not please them must bi fraudulent, and that a de cision Which does not please them must be resisted. It is not to his credit that, while they threaten, ho is silent. Has he hot the patriotism to tell his followers that the laws must bo obeyed? Has he not the good sense to repeat tho calm advice given by Gov. Hayes, and to remind his fol fowers that the actual results of elec tions are decided, not by hopes or bojtsts, but by official returns?; Y. Iribune; Hartford, November 11. Much ex citement baa been aroused in West Hartford by f'ettorts that Benjamin F. Bissel, a well-to-do farmer, who died last week arid was buried bn tho 8tb instant, had been poisoned. A post-mortem examination by three Hartford physicians, the day before the burial, brough to light some bus picibtis facts which led, them to re move the stomach of the deceased, and it ha3 been placed in the hands of the State tiSfetoist, Professor Hall, of this city, for ad analysis. His report is expected nest Monday, and mean while Mrs. Bissel ahd an Irish laborer on the farm, who are believed to be jointly implicated in the affair, are said to be Under surveillance. Cremation is to be suspended, and instead of destroying a corpee by fire, as the ancients did, or making gas of tho same, as has been suggested, an inventor of Grenoble, France, pro poses the opposite method, and pre serves them forever; "At th e decease of an individual the body is plunged into a liquid invented by him, and in about five yeas the individual is tunied into stoile. Tho gerret of the petrification is known only to the dis coverer. But he ges further. He says that in a thousand years time, if persons will preserve their relatives aud friends, they will be able to build a house with them, and thus live in residences surrounded by their ances tors." Another application Of this process has beeri suggested, namely, to have the petrified corpse nickel plated or electro-plated with bronze, and 11 a statute of oji Individual is de sired, to place the corpse On a proper pedestal, sd M to fulfil the functions of being the' etatuc Of the party deceased. i I MlMSttars'MMBftllBft Rldgwey Public Schools.
