TRIAL OF THE VIRGINIUS. '"-The Department of Justice lias decided that the Virginias will be -proceeded against in. the District " "Court of the Eastern District of New York at Brooklyn Judge Benedict " The trial will be for the forfeiture of the vessel for violation of the reg , istry law. Patterson, the reputed . owner, is liable for prosecution for perjury, and he and those associa ,tedyith him for violation of the , 'neutrality laws, but at present no ; .steps are being taken to commence suits under these branches of the . question. , ,. . : NEW TRADE DOLLAR ABOVE PAR. The Treasury Department has re loaJved advices from Peking, China, rthafctbe new trade dollar of the Uni- a ed States has been assayed by the Commission of the Chinese Empire, j and reported to be more intrinsic j. than the Mexican or Dutch dollar, which have been the standard coin .. among the Chinese for more than i.icentury, and a royal edict has con " sequent been issued making the United States silver dollar a dollar ' for all Chinese. The demand in this ' country for Mexican silver dollars use in UieChina trade has sometimes been so great .that they have sold 1 higher than gold, and are now i paR and a little better in San Fran cisco, being exported to China, and -1 Japan by every steamer. METHODS OF REVISING ESTIMATES. The departments, at the request . of the President, are all engaged revising the estimates. It has been ' decided that the .least, complicated 'method will be to take the book estimates, as printed, and send " Congress a statement referring each item in order by its title, and .give the number of the page, and state whether it must stand, or (whether it can be withdrawn or re- dnced. These, statements will be . seat : directly to Congress by the President, and will not be consoli dated at the Treasury Department ,Mr.. Parker, of Missouri, member .the Committee on Appropriations ati. work revising the estimates for the Indian bill, independent of the 'revision to be sent by the Depart ment of the Interior.' He feels con fideqt that at least one million and ahalfcaa.be saved over the esti mates submitted. ... NEW HAMPSHIRE GRANGES. The Grangers of New Hampshire tave perfected their State organiza tion, and have put forth a declara tion-of principles essentialy similar to those promulgated by the Order in Jther States. . In one respect the ew; Hampshire Granges have, how ever, gone a little in advance of their brethren . in the Western ' States, wiiere the Order has become most generally popular.- That is in de claring that the admission of wom en to equal rank in the member ship and offices of the Grange is an acknowledgement of the "rights" which are f claimed for the weaker sex. 'This action is easily account. ed lor by the statement that the Matrons were present and assisted the Masters in the work of perfect iBg the organization of the State Grange. . "' "! ' ' :.' , EX. MAYOR HALL. The acquital of ex-Mayor Hall, in New lorit, is not surprising. He whs ''Mayor during the time of Tweed's reign in that City, and member of the Board which passed the bills ..through v which Tweed swindled the city; but, although he was presumed to know all abont what was going on around him, it has never been shown that he profit ed personally, by the rascalities of the men .associated with him. He ought to have known that Tweed, and Sweeney, and Connolly were cheating the city, and it is hard, from the evidence, not to believe that he did know; but his hands were otherwise clean, and the fact that he iiad handled and received none of the stolen money has oper ated to bring about his acquittal. His. offence, at best, was a technical one; anil as he has learned a good lesson from bis experience, he will probably, be more careful hereafter, and keep out of 6iicu scrapes alto gctiier. . . , r . .i- - , l"JThe Howard Association of Mem phis has struck a balance sheet, and finds itself the possessor of $33,000, which it has decided to hold in re serve for future emergencies.

' THE CONGRESSIONAL SEASON. it The Cincinnati Commercial very pertinently calls attention to the (act as shown by the record of Con gress for twenty years past that no legislation of any consequence has been done at Washington during the three weeks that intervened be tween the opening of the session on the first Monday in December and the beginning of the holiday recess. It is an understood thing that this recess shall be given each year no matter what the exigencies of legis lation and beyond the details of or ganization, nothing but preliminary and ineffectual sparring is ever at tempted. It is therefore proposed that two important changes be made in the Congressional business, first that the sessions of Congress shall begin on the second Tensday of Jan uary each year, and secondly that members elected in the fall shall take their seats at the first assem bling of Congress thereafter. As now is the Representative elected in October wait until the following March, then goes to Washington, answers to-the roll-call of his name as the new Congress is polled, and returns home to await the real as sembling of the session on the first of the following December, a year and two month after his election. Meanwhile important changes have gone on. The whole financial and political aspect of affairs may have changed. The representative which a constituency may have chosen during the autura of 1872, may ut terly fail to represent the controll ing sentiment of bis district four teen months latter. It is theoreti cally true of the House of Bepresen tatives that it comes direct and fresh from the people. If this is really desirable it would probably be diffi cult to show any good reason why the members might not better take tneir seats within three months af ter election rather than after a whole year has passed. Concerning this point, there will be, of course great a to at in of to to of difference of opinion. We have given the main reasons that are urged favor of the new plan. Concerning the wisdom of omitting the frag mentary part or the session that comes before the Christmas holidays, there can be, one would suppose, but one opinion. It it true that Congress can not get throngh that part of the year with the simple cessation of work on Christmas and New Year's day, like the rest of the world, then it would by all means be better to save to the country the expense of three useless weeks, and to members expense additional trip home. The Parli ment of Great Britain meets about the first of February, and sticks its work week after week until about the first of July. Then, when the growing heats of summer impel the Lords and Commons to seek rest and a cooler atmosphere, the business is closed up and the mem bers are off for the summer vacation. There is none of the hasty and dis graceful rnshing through of month's work on the last night of sesion that must close at a fixed minute. There is no building home for a fortnight's junketing just as Parliment gets thoroughly settled to its work. Economy of time and money and generally effectiveness are important considerations in the management of a legislative body. The present Congressional schedule is sufficiently defective to make the dicussion of improvements interest ing and pertinent. ANOTHER GRAB. The Constitutional Convention assembled with greater pretensions of a retrenchment and reform than any like body within our knowledge but we are sorry to record the fact that their actions does not -conform with their professions. Previous to to adjournments vote was taken on the question whether the members should draw pay during recess. The following is the vote. The names of the Scpudlicans are printed in Roman type, those of Democrats in in Italics, and the Independents in Small Caps. Those who voted against drawing were, Juessrs. jsaoer, Ulose, jsyai, Cook, jETtH, Hitchcock, Hostetter, Humprenlle, Hunt, Johnson, Kerr, McCormick, Merrel, Miller, ieal, Page. Phellis, Keilv, Semple, ishaw Townsley, Tnllut, Van Voorhis, Weaver and Young of Campaign ' Those who voted for pocketing pay were much more numerous, as fol lows: .' Messrs.

This is nothing but another "Sal ary Grab," on a small scale. Laura Fair has married again it was so long since she d lost a bus band. The Kentuckv Bourbons are los ing ground. It is asserted that the new Legislature drinks less whisky per man than any that Has ever necn seen in 1 ranklort. Henrv Koeing, who married Lucy Schleman, in Hamburg.last summer, brought ber to this country and en deavored to murder her, was convic ted at Elizabeth, N. J. of the atroci ous assault, and sentenced to ten ears in the State Prison, and pay a fine of $1,000. A shooting affray took place a few days since iu Lincoln county, New Mexico, between Jack liuuum, for mer Sheriff of the county, and a Mr. Harold, both of whom had been rinkmg freely. An Attempt to ar rest them bv Mexican constables was resisted, and both Guilum and Har old were killed. ENGINEER'S STRIKE. it in is of to At noon on Friday last all the en gineer't on the lines opperated by the Pensylvania Central, stopped service wherever that hour found them. The secret association of lo - comotive engineers, to which per haps, seven-tenths of the engineers in the United States belong, had, through its proper chancls determin ed that beginning with 12 o'clock Friday every engine of the leased lines of the Pennsylvania Central should quit work. By some means the firemen who are not members of the Brotherhood, but whose wages were reduced at the same time with the engineers, were induced to join in the strike. It seems that on the first of December the wages were reduced 10 per cent which is the cause of the strike. On the part of the railroad com pany it is claimed that the reduc tion of business consequent on the panic made it necessary to order general reduction of wages, or to discbarge employes. The former course was chosen, and the pay of all the officers, and all employes was reduced 10 per cent the reduction to take effect, for all but the engin eers and the Cremen,on the 1st ofNo- vember, and for those on the first of December. . The engineers resisted, and also the firemen. The engineers, on their side,claim that a special and written agreement had been entered into with the As sistant General Manager f the road fixing their wages at $4 15 per day that the reduction was a violation of this written agreement; that though they had endeavored to have a consultation with the officers of the company, they have been able to obtain none, and they "could not submit" Assuming that the question has been rightly stated, the simple ques tion, so far as the right of the busi ness is concerned,is whether the en gineers were justified in striking on account of a 10 per cent reduc tion. To this question we think the an swer is clear. First, the railroad company chose both the right and popular way to meet the emergency by reducing wages and salaries,rath er than by discharging employes- This supposes that a reduction expenses had to be made in some way. This supposition is a fair one and will not be questioned by any business man. With one or two exceptions, the strike has been thus far unattended with violence. The following from the Grand Chief Engineer shows that the strike was not authorized : Cleveland, O. Dec 28, 1873. The strike now in operation on the leas ed lines of the Pennsylvania Cen tral Company is in direct violation of the rules of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers. My advice to every member of the Brotherhood that has quit work on account of the strike is, to go to work at once, and to use every influence in their power to induce all persons engaged in the strike to resume work and desist from any .interference with the company's property or m.;n. In my opinion no dishonor will be attached to any man that accepts a situation from the Pennsylvania Railroad Company during their pre sent troubles. GHARLES WILSON, G. C. F. CORPORAL PUNISHMENT. Three years ago corporal punish ment was abolished in the public schools of New York City. Now 12. 00 teachers, male and female, advo cate ics revival. The subject has been carefully investigated by 'the Committee on Teachers of the Board of Education, which has examined many teachers on the working of the moral suasion system. . As the re suit or inquiries the committee re ports that corporal punishment be restored as far as boys are concern ed, but be administered under-care ful reguIations,and only by the prin cipal, or, in his absence, by the vice- principal of a school,on flagrant and persistent offenders. - Under the present regime the pupils are less obedient, more insolent than form erly;more frequently truants, less neat in person, more careless of their books and slates; cases of gross dis obedience both to teachers and par ents have increased, and bad child ren, who might have been reclaimed by some punishment, have been "Worked out" of the schools. ' In regard to children who have no fa thers to manage them at home, the growth of lawlessness is specially noticeable. There is a good deal of local excitement over the question. Some newspaper critics want the girls to be flogged as well as the boys, while others denounce the pro posed restoration as a return to barbarism, and s necessitated only oy tnc inefficiency or the teachers. HUGH MILLER. Hugh Miller, whose fame is world wide, was first brought to notice of scientific men by Prof. Agassiz. At a meeting of the British Scientific Society, Miller.who wns then a com raon day laborer, approache d Agas siz with a specimen of rock in his hand, and began making certain in quiries concerning it. During the conversation that ensued, Agassiz discovered that this common day laborer was possessed of a large fund of geological information, which he had acquired by personal investiga tions, induced solely by his innate love for the science. Agassiz was delighted at meeting him, and in troduced Miller to the members of. the society, explaining tho manner in which he had become acquainted with him. The friendships thus formed continued through their lives and Agassiz wrote the introduction to Hugh Miller's first published work. Outstanding legal tenders, $375,- 403,218.

I do not desire to take up the time of the House, and shall not do so to any great extent, because I know how many gentlemen are pressing for an opportunity to occu py the floor, and 1 also Know now nearly the patience 01 ine nouse has become exhausted with this de bate. I desire to say only a single word in explanation of the vote I shall give upon this measure My posi tion in regard to tne salary diu is this: I believe that the true thing for this House to do is to repeal, as completely and thoroughly as it possibly can consistently with the Constitution ot the United States, the salary bill which was approved on the 3d of March, 1873. That is the object which I would like to ac complish with my vote, if I can do so. I disapproved at that time en tirely of raising" salaries; I so vot ed, and I am of the same opinion still. I wish to see that totally re pealed. I think it is the right coarse and the course which will best satisfy the country. Having that feelinff. that being my convic tion, I desire so to vote, if possible, as to make my vote effective tow ard that end. I discover that there is likely to be some difficulty in onr so voting as exactly to represent our views and it is for that reason that I felt desirous for one moment in which to state precisely my position and the end which 1 would accompusn. I honestly believe that it was wrong for the Forty-second Congress to raise salaries in the circumstances in which we were then placed. I was opposed to "forward pay, as it is called; I am still opposed to them both. I thought the action of (Jon gress on this subject was wrong,and I also thought it a great error as a matter of policy. I would be glad to see the iaw of last session on this subject wholly and utterly re pealed. That is my feeling in re gard to this matter; and my vote will be given with an honest desire to accomplish this end. I confess that in spite' of the numerous ex planations we have had, my mind is perfectly clear as to what will be the most effective course of voting to accomplish that end; but that with all the light I can get from all these distinguished sources, is the object I shall endeavor to accom plish Que word further and I shall set down. In my opioion the way peace, quiet, and rest for this House upon this question or the salary in is to get rid of the whole of it. That is my honest conviction. I believe that the sooner we repeal the act entirely, so far as-it relates to th question, the sooner we shall have peace upon the subject. If we peal but a part of it, I suspect shall feel a certain lingering tendetj cy to go back to the subject, to troduce new bills, to see whether we cannot finally and completely abolish what in the beginning we had repealed only in part. 1 fear sir, if we do not make a clean busi ness of this matter at the very out set, this measure will haunt us winter. I bis is an additional reas on why I wish to get rid of the whole question; and I hope this House will so vote. I have made this statement simply to satisfy my own judgement and conscience regard to this matter, and to ex plain the grounds upon which my votes will be given. THE ACHEEN WAR. Mr. Cornells de Groot,long resi dent of the East Indies, furnishes the Cimanson, New Mexico, News with the following account of the origin the Acheenese war: : - "On the northern extremity of th island of Sumatra there exists empire, hitherto independent of the .Netherlands , government, whose name is properly'Atieh,',but on one of the maps is called Atcheen.he rulers and people of Atieh are war like and wholly uncivilized, and pay no regard to treaties. Tuey are pi- rates,plundering merchant vessels of every nation at sea, murdering and capturing natives of the islands the west cost of Sumatra,and selling them as slaves elsewhere. . One year ago the English and N therlands government made a treaty whereby the Netherlands ceded their possession ou the west coast of Africa to the English, and they gave the Netherlands government full power in northern Sumatra, where that government,nntil that time.had been unable to do anything to com pel the rulers of Atjeh to keep their treaties. In April of this year the Netherlands t-ast India governmen sent a high official officer, the Vice President of the council of India, to Atjeh to demand an explanation certain acts of the Atjeh chiefs, and to make a treaty with the Sultan Atjeh to put an end to the bad and treacherous conduct of that people. A fleet and troops were sent over at the same time to make war upon them in case they refused to receive proposals for a treaty. 1 he Sultan and his chiefs were ready for bosti nties when the Netherlands commis sioner arrived, and his request to be received as a commissioner was not answered. ' Thereupon the war began. TWO TALLEST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD. Cap. M. . V. Bates great Kentuck giant and his wife (ormeily Miss Anna H.
