Opficiai. statistics regarding German J]
emigration, which have just been pub
ltahcd, show that there Bailed from Ham- jj
liurg, Bremen, Stettin and Antwerp during
lS7S-'79, 21,217 Herman emigrants. H
From theso points the number coming to r
tlio United .States was 20,373, tho remain- jt
?!er going to Australia and Brazil in about fi
equal numbers. It is a Curious feature of d
the German emigration, as compared with f(
that of other countries?and yet readily i
understood when looked into carefully? f<
that the per centage of males predomi- ^
nates greatly. This is owing to the inllu- j]
ence of the military system of the Fatherland,
those aubjes/t to its provisions taking e
advantage of the opportunity to avoid it. c
During the past eight years nearly 52,000 J

Tiif. railroad investigation jn progress gi
at Nesv York, ordered by the la?t New 1
York Legislature on the petition of Sow n
York- merchants, has been conducted so fj
fur by' a highly competent man, Simon fi
Sterne, and promises good results. The r
examination of the New York Central's j
freight agent has brought out, as might p
have been expected, that tho road like fi
others has a "special" freight rate for eve- 0
ry shipper and to every destination. The ?
regular tariff is established only to be broken,
and contracts departing from it arc t<
wade for every conceivable reason. Kail- ?
os'l men consider it impossible to do ^
otherwise, and most business men are f,
Jirmly persuaded that these secret contracts
for special rate3 aro profitable, al- J
though in the long run they always give
large operators an advaatage over smaller j
ones. S
Oua friend, Charley l'ranzheiui, tells us H
that when lis was in the City of Mexico \
he noticed in passing along the streot two [
handsome wine glasses in the show case
window of a china store, and was struck g
with the similarity of the pattern to one r
that he had it) his possession iroin the Cen- e
tral Glass Company of Wheeling. He j
stepped into the store and examined the j
pattern more thoroughly, and found that
it was exactly the same, and moreover *
that tho glasses had been made in Wheel- <
ing by the Contral Glass Company and j
exported to Brcmon in Germany, and i
from thence imported into Mexico. TIy?
prico in Mexico was $135 for a pair of the
glasses, whorcas in Whoeling they were i
sold at 40 conts per dozon.
This incident he told us as showing the }
immense profit at which goods are sold In
Mexico. (
Tub Legislature of Ohio has boon at
work for sorno time on an amendment to t
the present Sunday Amusement law. The t
hist state of the proposed amendmeut is as t
Whoever, being over 14 years of age, engages
in spoiling, rioting, quarreling,
liming, lishmg, or shooting on .Sunday, or ^
?m said day exhibit? oris concerned in exhibiting
any interltufr. tragedy, comedy, (
o|>era, ballet, play, farce, negro minstrelsy, (
dancing, or any* other entertainment of |
the stage, or any part or paru? therein, or (
nnv equestrian, circus, or dramatic per- ,
iorinance, or any performance of juniors, \

ballooning, or in keeping any low, disorderly
house or resort, shall, on complaiiu'inade
within ton days thereafter, bo j
lined not more than $50, or imprisoned not 1
mire than twonty day, or both. j
This bill is aimed especially at the man- j
nor In which Sunday is disgraced at Cin- f
cinoati, where, we may say, the day is
hardly kept at all. To such a disgraceful j
length has the "dangerous element" car- (
rial their desecrations that the whole regions
and mural clement of the eity have '
'fen aroused to that the danger menaces <
them, and henno tho present movement
for a more stringiuit law against all violations
of public decency and prosperity. i
Tin: measures ot economy in tho ail- (
minfetration of tho salaried departments
of tho city, as introduced by the Council
Committee on Salaries, have met with op- '
position in tho Second Branch, while tho '
First Branch has especially championed j
the proposed reform. The coiumittco '
sonio weeks ago reported a reduction of 10
per ceut. on XtiC salaries of the Street Commissioner,
Superintendent of Water
Works, Chief of Police and City Clerk,
but tho Socond Branch, after eo2>o discussion,
finally put the salaries back fe> the
old figures, Tho First Branch, however,
when tho report reached them, made the
reduction as reported by the committee.
The First Branch took a further step.
Tho report of tho Committee on Salaries
made a reduction of 10 per cent, on the
alary of Superintendent of the Water
Works, but retained tho salaries of two
engineers and two firemen at the same
inures as last year, $75 and $60 a month
respectively. The First Branch took the
ground that this was unequal and unjust
economy, mid that the employe* of the
Superintendent should be treated to the
samo economical medicine as lliu Suporlndent
hliuaolf, and consequently made tho
reduction (all upon employer and employe
alike. In support of their
action tho First Drancii took the
ground that tho shriukOHU of values
and tho reduction of salaries in all departments
of business gave them a precedent
(or Inaugurating a reform in the financial
afl'nirs of the city. Tho Second Drench
refused to concur In the amendments at a
previous meeting, and asked fur a Committee
of Conference, and said Committee
reported last evening recommending Council
to refuse to accede to tho proposed reductions.
Tho First Itrunch stood by
lis former action and insisted upon
the amendments, ami naked for another
Committee o' Conference, which was
jraiiteU. Tho committee luilod to come
to nny definite conclusion on the mutter 1
it the time of adjournment last evening,
inri it is not probable that their report
tvill in any measure be agreeable to tho i
First Branch. The matter of the City
Sergeant's salary ha* not boon touched,
md will not be until the bill fur tho inireasoof
the |>olice force, now ponding in
he Second Branch, shall have been acted

The Senate Democratic caucus received
his morning from Messrs. Thurman, McDonald
and Garland a verbiil report of the
ruitless result of their efforts to affect an
irrangement with Bayard for the withIrawal
of his resignation of tlie Finance
Committee Chairmanship, and for an
igreetnenton his part to allow the Warner
liver bill to be reported back for action by
ho Senate in advance of its completed (
lonsideration by the committee.
Judge Thurman, on behalf of the com*
nittec, reported also that Kornan was
ilike indexible in his determination to adtere
to his voto in the Finance Com- j
aittee in favor of postponing the action on 1
ho silver bill till next winter.
Thurman and McDonald after stating '
ho details of the efforts made the com*
uittce to bring about some harmouious
.rrangomeut, proceeded to make brief
peeches of a conciliatory nature, each I
ounsoling that Bayard's resignation 1
hould not be accepted. McDonald took ,
ho ground also that the caucus should <
Irop the whole subject of the silver bill.
Mr. Garland thought his resignation
hould be accepted and the bill brought ;
>eforo tho Senate and passed.
Mr. Coke spoke at considerable length
md with much uarnestness.uonteqding that
layard's resignation ought to he accepted
ind the Finance Committee to im- 1
nediately reorganize and to ac- 1
:ord with the views ot the |
najority of the Democratic Senators on ]
he silver question. lie insisted that no
>nu man ought to be allowed to obstruct I
hp v/ijl of an overwhelming majority of '
)f his party in Congress. Tho bill should j
t\- icjiviivii lur iuc |?uuij>|i yi mu
senate, and if to obtain an opportunity
or action a change ill the membership of
he committee be necessary that change
ihould bo made at once, for ajonor or
5ter it would have to be made.
Gordon replied to Senator Coke in a
peech which is described on nil hands as
me of great fervor and .eloquence J Jo
aid the question before the caucus had
wtb a personal and a political aspect.
Hie acceptance of Senator HayarcJ's resiglation
would be in effect a censure on
hat gentleman, and the adoption of tfye
Joke resolution would be similarly'co;ir
trued, lio was, therefore, oppose<J to
lie other proposition, although it* |oy?l to
be silver cause as any other living man
io would not consent to do anything to
Jrike down a man like Bayard. He
mew ho could speak for every man in
leorgia, and lie b*l?o;'o4 bo could speak
or every Southerner when he tmi<? & efttyft
ranstlxing Hayard's heart would give a
jijnj; to every Southern heart, for through>ut
oil their troubles and trials and opjressions
since the cios>i cf the war Bayird
had beeri the truest oI tty.e tru*/. In
bo next place, as a political matter, Ijo
bought ifotljingcould be gained, but much
loujd bo lost, by tlfo proposed action. The
iare possibility of sowingdjsseifsltjn tijo
sart v now ulinuhl ho enouuh to make the
mucus pause nnd rolled, and upon tho
eHection it would certainly bo j>ercelved
hat there could be uothing gained by
itrjkinga blow which woulu reach not

tnd loyal iienjo^rja^y^o agreed with hirn
ii!;!? linanclal vWs', ahli'who ypr? in
inison witii the rest of their party Art
rreator and more important questions in
his connection.
Mr. Gordon counseled his party lrien<Js I
.0 take pattern by tho Republicans who <
ivero nlso divided 011 tho financial ques- i
;ion, but who stood in solid phalanx on i
ivory other. Besides those considern- I
lions he points out, there is no certainty |
)t obtaining a majority voto for tho llnal
passage of the Warnar bilj pvon if it bo i
Drought beforo the Senate, and tatat thy :
jnly resultof forcing action upon it mlgut
prove to be a loading of the Democratic
Scnijto with an alleged responsibility for
its defeat.
Mr. .Saulsbury made a few rpniarks complimentary
to his colleague and in opposition
to the acceptance of his resignation.
Mr. Voorhees then took the lloor, but
was cut off very Boon aftercommencing by
tho arrival of tho hour for the assemblage
of the Senato a'n.d consequent termination
of the caucus.
An adjournment was thou taken until
to-morrow and tho whole subject weut
overwlthont action.
Indications are very strong that the caucus
will to-morrow decline to accept Bayard's
resignation, and it. will also then be
detormlued by a largo majority to leave
the silver bill in tho hands pftljo Finance
Committee until next winter.
The proceedings qqi} fjqdings of tho
court martial in tho caso of Ool. D. &.
Stanley and Col. W. B. Ilazen, of which
Genoral Hancock was Prosidont, were
madfl public to-day. The court found
Stanley guilty of coi)(}qctto the prejudice
of good ordor and military dlsctpiinc, and
sentenced him to bo admonished in general
orders by the Genoral of the army.
Generai Sherman on reviewing ttyo fjnding
of tho court says: "Thfe proceetflngs,

In reviewing the voluminous record ot

the Judgment o( the Court that Col. Stan*
ley In writing to Ool. 3??niethe'1 ?broad,
tho threatening letter ot September 6,
J877, and afterward |n allowing the
publication of charges In (ho Now York
Timn, committed a breath ot discipline,
llo had n perfect rlxlit to prefer chargos
and areclficatlons, which lie had done
from New York on the nth day of July,
1877, but when advised that the President
of the United States had considered them
and had decided that the best interest of
the service would not bo advanced by a
Sonoral court martial, it was his plain
nty to hare submitted gracefully. Tho
law oflicors of the (government have de- .
cided that tho Un (tea Sfatea cannot arraign
for trial any officer for offenses committed (
more than two years before tho order for
tho assembling of the court. For tills reason
charges against Colonel Hjizen cannot (
bo inquired into by a general court martial,
so that this trial and judgment must |
stand as the Anal decision of all matters ,
raised In the controversy. Both parties i
parties will ue earciul that the servico will
not be injured by a revival of this subject.
The Democratic members of the House
Appropriation Committee hold a conference
after adjournment to-day for the purposo
of agreeing oil a plan of procedure
on tho bill making an appropriation for
tho judicial expenses of the Govorement,
which was amended and passed by the
Senate yesterday, and referred to tho
House Committee to-day. Members of
the committee are authority for the statement
that the majority will roconimend
non-concurrence on tho second section of
the bill as amended by the Kenate and
will submit that section in a modified
form, and ask the appointment of a conference
committee. There will be a special
meeting of tho committee to consider
this measure to-morrow.
The session of tho House Commerce [
Coininitteo to-day was devoted outirely to
tho further consideration of the proposi- c
tion authorizing tho sub committee to in- v
quire into a roport wherein the existing .
laws can be so amended as to relievo the
commercial interests of the country, and j
Chairman Reagan was finally instructed f
to offer a resolution at the first opportuni- "
ty requesting an appropriation to carry
out the resolution of this subject, which v
was adopted by the House on tho lth 11
inst. It proposed to-day that this sub- il
committee should also hear testimony in "
regard to the inter-state commerce bill, .
and this will probably bo the final deter- 1
munition, 'providing tho nouoasary appro- J1
priation shall be allowed by the IJouse, (
