SATURDAY, - DECEMBER 14, 1872. JilES I. CHAMBERS, - - - Editor. EDITORIAL PABAGB1PM8. ' W shall read someday of a tremen dous row in France. As certain of our own poets hath said, "things Is a work in," in that delectable country. Thiers will be compelled to die or resign before long, whether he will or not. The mon archists are on the qui vive for the con. vulslon that must follow. The Repub lican party of the country are becoming discontented, and are demanding the dissolution of the Assembly, and an ap peal to tU .people .by new election. Then wilTcome trouble," And without will come trouble. So that trouble is ahead in; any erent.

A promise made at I Chiselhurst not to disturb the cession of Alsace and Lorraine, and to fully pay the balance of the . Indemnity money, would go far towards gaining German favor to the attainment of that end. .- With the very opening of Congress there has been manifested a disposition to indulge in lavish extravagance, which,1 when public feeling in regard to reform and economy is taken into con sideration, shows a singular blindness, or.a.reckloss disregard of popular opin ion... Among other projects is one em bodied in a bill brought before the House to provide for the building of ten sloops I oi war, one nan w ue cuusiruuwu iu i private yards, and although the number was cut down to six before it passed yet the fact of it being entertained at all serves as a good illustration of the pre vailing disposition to embark in lavish prodigality. The subject of the bill it self but brings this out in the strongest light. Iu plain words our Navy is an expensive, humbug. As managed at present the system serves only to fit out a fleet of pleasure yachts for the nse of naval officers, whereby they may see the world, dance at aristocratic balls, give fetes to distinguished visitors, and withal draw good pay from the Treasury for all their hardships .and dangerous services in this behalf. Building naval vessels iu time of peace to be prepared iu time of war has been proven so unless that our Congressmen might do well to heed, and find some more useful way of spend ing money than' by appropriating mil lions to build "stoops" which we fcave every reason to believe will share, the common fate and. rot upon the stocks before completed. Throughout the Country the notices accorded by the Press to Mr. Greeley have been most numerous and kind but possibly none contain more suggestive truthfulness than the following which is from the N. Y. Nation. "The close of his career has been so pathetic In so many of its incidents as to excite deep and general sympathy and to incline the hearts ' even of his opponents to peace - and forgiveness, and it will therefore probably contribute power fully - to .the , production of a year .. of political calm. The leading events of his life are' too well known to all our readers, to make any recurrance to them necessary now. In reading the. glowing eulogies passed on his life and works, however, by some of onr eotemporaries, one can hardly help asking why these enceniums which are now passed out so freely, should, have been reserved for "the dull, cold ear of death" why some of this ardent ap preciation of Mr. Greeley's talents and character and services, if not proffered tor ' him directly ' in his lifetime, should not . have been allowed, at least to make denunciations of him. de cent and restrained t The mysteries of "journalism" are numerous and deep, but we think the most puzzling is that which makes Journalists wall or chant praisealike "Keeners' at an Irish fu neral, over the coffin of a dead brother, whom, in the days of his strength and activity, they never wearied In describ ing as a knave, a liar and a cheat. Self- respect, at least, seems to require either that journalistic controversies inter vivos should be conducted with greater de cency and toleration, or journalistic lam entations of his death be made more sober. , " . -.It : BOOKS AND PAPEB8.

The following is a synopsis of the fourth annual report of the Board of Indian Commissioners: After three years of working of the peace nolicv the Board find cause for congratulations him meir anticipations oi success In their attempts to civilize the Comadin tribes have been so far fulfilled that mere is now a reasonable assurance that the object in view is being rapidly at- tolniul TI,a r .u . r tem nave caiiou jnro Hie confidence In tne justice ot the whites. The Indians, therefore, are more disposed to help themselves. Nearly five-sixths of the Indians ot the united States are now either civilized or partly civilized. The very fraudulent means bv which ae-en cies were formerly made fruitful sources rrom wnicn large fortunes were speed lly drawn, are now nerlv abandoned Instead of paying for thirty-six pertient more than Is received, the government receives full value for the money appro priated, and the Indian ets nil he Is tairly entitled to. Various religious de nominations have expended large sums in cnristianizing tne Indiana, and the! supcess has been marked. The Board during the three years of its existence, have traveled, in th performance of their duties, more than twb hundied and fifty-six thousand miles. The Sioux and other tribes on the Northern Pacific Railroad are generally well disposed. The Indian territory, with a smaller area than any the territories, has a pop ulation exceeding any with the excep tion of jyew Mexico and Utah. It nas more acres of land under cultivation than any other in the United States. This effectually disposes of the state ment tnat tbere n an unreasonable amount of land lying i lle there, as com pared with other portions of the Uni ted States. The Board deems it a. mat ter- of congratulation that the public opinion of the country is so crvstalizinz into purposes, of justice and humanity. A wo delegations nave arrived Irotn Alabama, appointed respectively bv the two bodies calling themselves Legisla tures in session there, to -consult with the President relative to Alabama poli ties. 'rh statement of the Repablien delegation is substantially this : That the State la overwneimingiy .Republican is Droved bv the maioritv of 10.000 for Grant, which was acknowledged by the. uemocrauc state omciais. ' a cnange of eigne votes alters tne political complex- ion or tne .Legislature, xo secure the control of that body the Democratic State officers gave certificates to four de- reated democratic candidates from Ma rengo aad four rrom Barbour county, and reiuseu cernncates to tne eight He puoiican members irom tnese two coun ties, who were notoriously elected by large majorities. The Democrats then initiated a course of intimidation and violence, foreshadowing intended usurn- ation of State authority. The Republi cans, consequently, being advised that it was tne uaiiot and not the certificate which gives the office, met in the Court room witn tne eight Republicans law fully elected from those counties and organized what they consider the law ful Republican Legislature of a Republi can State. The whole issue turns upon tne legal question as to the certificates for these eight members. On Wednes day the Cabinet held a protracted ses sion, oevoted to tne consideration of the Alabama Dual Legislature, but no defi nite conclusion was reached. "Southern Republican members who nave arrived state tnat since the election there are manifest signs of a speedy dis solution oi tne democratic party In the South ; that especially in South Carolina to oe a .republican is no longer a dis honor, and that the words, "scalawag" and carpet-bag Republican," in their old time contemptuous usage, are be coming rapidly eliminated from the so cial vocabulary. The Senate Resumed for the week end ing Dec. 10th On Monday the 2d the Senate met at noon, the Vice President in the chair. All the leading Senators were present. The chaplain, in the opening prayer, alluded to the death of Mr. ureeley as that or one whose pen had given direction to public thought. and bad been a benefaction to mankind. The House was notified of the Senate's readiness for business. A number of bills were introduced, among them one oy sumner, to strike rrom the United States flag and army register all record oi oatties lougnt witn reiiow citizens. The rest of the day was passed in pre senting credentials and making the us ual preparatory motions. After a re cess a message was received from the House announcing the adoption of concurrent resolution in regard to the ueatn oi Horace lireeley. The annual message was then brought iu by Gen eral caucocK anu read oy tne Cleric, un Tuesday the Senate merely met long enough to adjourn until Wednesday. wn-en Mr. Anthony was elected Presi dent protem and another adjournment was made until Thursday. On that day several motions were made and a few bills introduced but no business of im portance or interest was transacted. On Friday, on motion of Mr. Frelineuuv- sen, tne senate suspended tne rule re quiring the election of Chairman of standing: committees by ballot, and standing ana select committees were then elected, but lack of space prevents any list of them. The balance of the day was passed in general business and aud at an early hour the Senate ad journed until Monday, at which time it again adjourned until Tuesday. On that day, alter a number or resolutions and motions, the calender of business was taken un but most of the bills passed over. Without doing much bus iness tne senate finally adjourned me Mouse itesume for the week end ing nee. low. on .Monday the 2d. the House was called to order at noon by- speaker Blaine. The attendance of members was very large, and the gal leries were crowded with spectators, The proceedings were opened with prayer by the chaplain, Rev. J. G. But ler. The roll of members was called and one hundred and forty-nine mem bers answered to their names. The only business done was the adoption of a resolution to appoint a committee to investigate the Credit Mobilier business and another relative to the death of Hor ace .Greeley.' On Tuesday there were several unimportant motions made and bills introduced bnt nothing of interest or importance. On Wednesday there were come bills introduced and the bal ance of the day spent in discussing the bill to provide for building ten- steam stoops oi war and tnat relative to Gov ernment Telegraphy. Thursday and Friday were also spent in discussion of tnese bins and in general debate, and at an early nour or tne alter noon adiourn ment was had nntil Monday.

The interior of the Church ot the Di vine Paternity, where Mr. Greeley's ob sequies were held. presented A somberly beautiful appearance. Crape was sus pended in profusion, and exquisite floral offerings were displayed, having appro priate designs.- At the rear ot tne pul pit was a heaf of wheat, from Chap pa- qua, in tne lorm oi a crown, anu sus pended over the head a pin and axe. a floral wreath at the head of the pnlpit bore a letter "H ;" also in flowers a plow, from the Tribune office. Outside tite church were throngs waiting in re spectiui silence, fonce stood in iront oi the church as a guard. The church was opened about 10&. although ladies had previously been admitted and nned tne galleries. During , the hour which elapsed betore the arrival or the proces sion, strains of music were discoursed by the choir. At eleven o'clock the fun eral procession started from Mr. Sin clair's house. Forty-fifth street. Many aflecting scenes took place there during the morning. Mr. Greeley's daughters were inconsolable in their grief. The corpse was borne by ten men. Next came the chief mourners, then the Trib une association, next the Herald Club; then followed in succession military and civil officers according to the program me. At twenty minutes past eleven the procession entered the church. The solemnity of the scene was most impres sive. The stillness was. such that it seemed as though the people in the church scarcely breathed. Rev. Dr. Chapin opened the ceremonies by read ing apnropriateselections Irom thesenp- turcs. Miss Clara Louise Kellogg next sang very toucningiy "a .now mat jay Redeemer Liveth," after which Rev. Henry Ward Reechet delivered the fun eral oration. The procession moved down Fifth avenue in the following or der, the police having previously cleared the roadway from curb to curb: Mounted police ; Broadway squad ; Su perintendent Kelso ; Mayor Hall ; In spector Dilks and Walling; fourth pre cinct police, Captain Tillman; one hun dred members oi the ire uepartment. under command or .Engineer bnay ; Key, Dr. Pullman, officiating clergyman at the grave; the pall bearers, consisting of the following gentlemen: Chief Jus tice Chase, Senator Trumbull, Thurlow Weed.

At' Greenwood an enormous concourse had gathered standing about the entrance gates and fringing the winding roads and concen trating about the open grave, so that the mourners, when the cortege arrived, had the greatest difficulty in following the hearse. About one hundred and twenty carriages roiiowcd tne remains to ween- wood. The body was deposited in Mrs Greeley's lot. There was no ceremonies of any kind further than the laying of the body in its last resting place. A fire at Fifth Avenue Hotel, Tuesday night, broke out shortly alter 11 o clock on the second floor. The flames spread so rapidly that servants asleep in the rooms at the top of the staircase were overtaken before assistance could reach them, and were completely shut off from the main building. The firemen who had m the meantime arrived, were too late for assistance, as by this time the apartments of the poor creatures were enveloped in flames. Shortly after one o'clock, when it was found that a number of persons were missing, a po lice officer and a chief of the Are depart ment effected an entrance by means of an iron ladder to the room where the people were supposed to be and there they found the charred, burned bodies .of thirteen persons. Bedding and fur niture were strewn about tne rooms, confused with human remains. The bodies lay at the different places from which the poor people had tried to find means of egress. Some had endeavored to escape through the windows : other in their endeavor to find air had fallen at the head of the staircase. The bodies of two women were half concealed un dcr a bed in a outer room, where they had, evidently, tiled to shelter them selves from the blinding suffocating smoke and scathing flame. . When the firemen and police got into the wing the floors of this room were sound, but the rooi umoers were burned and had fal len upon the floors in a confused mass upon the bodies. Wacer thrown from the hose was several inches deep upon the floor, and was filtering through to the ground. Heavy beams of the roof nad taiien upon burned bodies, severin the limbs and mutilating the remains horribly. The bodies were speedily re moved to xsenevue nospitai. The Herald, editorially, says it said that gross carelessness was appar ent in the condition of the warning ap paratus, and that there is too much anx iety to keep the fire secret, and too little ettort made to save the unfortunate girls. The whole subject will no doubt- be thoroughly investigated. The losses are estimated at from $130,000 to $150,000. HOW CMItOJIOS ABE MADE. Probably very few, even of those per sons who are generally well informed, have the slightest conception of the va rious processes by which those wonders of modern imitative art, popularly known as Chromos, are gradually de veloped, step by step, to a perfection which almost defies discrimination in comparing with the original. The litho graphic, or stone procoss, is that gene ally used in this oountry; but having been found too slaw, and inherently de fective for rendering some of the most delicate tints, great effbrts have been made to find a substitute, by which a higher degree of perfection could be at- . : , i .i , i . . vaineu, uuu tne superior productive ca pacity of relief substituted for the un certainties and delays of surface paint ing. Slany years ago. Mr. Charles Stahl, a lithographic engraver of high repute, directed his attention'to this subject and after years of patient and euthusistic de votion, he has overcome all difficulties, and has so perfected his process as to in sure a complete revolution in the art of color printing, Messrs, James Sutton & Co., of 58 Maiden Lane, New York, publishers of the Aldine, adopted his process for the production of Premium Chromos, some three years ago; and, with the increased facilities thus placed at his disposal, Mr. Stahl has been enabled to achieve the most admirable results, ami the firm are now printing Chromas, equal in every respect to the very best foreign speci mens. The picture to be copied Is covered with a transparent sheet of oiled paper, on which a tracing of every outline is made. This outline 13 then transferred to a lithographic stone, known as the " Key." A number of plates, equal to the number ol tints desired, Is next pre pared and an impression from the Key Is printed on eav-h. With the original betore him, the artist fills in with a crayon such portions of the outlines on each plate as he wishes to have repro duce the particular shade assigned to it. The uu touched portions ol the plate are then covered with a peculiar prep aration, aud a galvanic bath nicely gov erned, does the work of an engraver, but does it as no engraver could possibly do it true to a hair, and finer if nec essary, than the naked eye can discover. Each plate Is printed in Its turn on the paper, and every impression must be o adjusted to its predecessors, that there shall not be the slightest variation. When is is considered thatas many as twenty or thirty plates are often re quired and. some portions of the tint are preserved pure to the end, while others are covered and affected by one or all succeeding impressions the mar velous skill and knowledge ot various combinations of color required of an ar tist who essays to lay out and complete the plates for a Chromo, may be fairly magiued bv those who see aud admire the splendid results of his labours. in the Aldine establishment may be seen two immense Cottrell & Babcock printing presses, selected for their ac- curcyof register and perfect distribution. t hese presses are constantly occupied in printing the Chromos to be given as premiums to subscribers to the Aldine for 1873. The process of relief printing has, among many, this very important ad vantage over lithography : the printing is not from surface transfers never per fect, and continually demanding renew al but directly from the engraving itself which being on hard metal, will not wear out. Jfersons wno are sansnea with the specimens shown, may be as sured that the copies they get will be even better, as practice constantly im proves tne adjustment or tne colors. Since the Aldine originated the plan of giviug subscribers Chromos free, nearly every paper of any pretention has adopted the idea, and many things called Chromos have been extensively advertised and puffed all over the coun try. The well-known artistic standing of the Aldine was a guarantee that its Premium Chromos would be everything that the most fastidious could desire, and the specimens of "The Village Belle " and " Crossing the Moor," now before us, fully justify every expecta tion. . The superior facilities ot the publish ers enable them to deliver a large edi tion of these Chromas to subscribers im mediately, and they can keep pace with a .demand equal to 20,000 pairs per month rrom January. it is estimated that beiore J une ist. over 2,500,000 impressions will be painted on each of these Chromos, which would give 100.000 pairs. Such an edi tion of Chromos of such grade and size (14x20 inches each), is an utterly un heard of thing, and a year ago' would have caused our slower cousins across the water to laugh at the projector as fool. But this is not a country of pre cedents ; it is only asked is the thing possible ? and presto l American en terprise does it 2 PLANTS IN SLEEPING KOOJH8. Sad consequences have followed from sleeping in close apartments in which potted plants were kept. Very many in warm tamuy rooms, not very frequently ventilated, may seriously injure persons of a delicate organization especially tnose predisposed to anections oi oron chial irritability. Ail vegetables throw on oxygen an element that supports life through the day, but that function-is suspended through the night. While exhaling oxygen from one side of a leaf, the other Imbibes carbonic acid gas wnicn is prejudical to lite, aud the solid part oi stalk, stem and wood are formed from.it. But while sleeping, as the whole vegeta ble kingdom does, through the night, the absorption of that deleterious gas is par tially suspended, though it colleeta about them by virtue of a law not very well understood, it is that accumula tion in a room, the inhalation of which into human lungs is so injurious. There fore it is always on the safe side not to keep flowering on any other pet plants either in domitories or close family drawing rooms. ., DOE$IIC HAPPINESS. the great end ot prudence is to give cneerruluess to those horn's which splen dor can not gild and acclamation can not exhilerate. Those soft intervals of nuben- ded amusement in which a man shrinks to his natural dimensions, and throws aside the ornaments and disguises which ne leeis in privacy to be useless incum brances, and to lose all effect when they become familiar. To be happy at home, is the ultimate result of all ambition, the end to which every enterprise and labor tends, and of which every desire prompts the execution. . it is, indeed, at borne that every man must be known by those who would nave aiust estimate ol his virtue or felicity, for smiles and em broidery are alike occasional, and the mind is often dressed for show in painted nonor and nctitous benevolence.
