Special Correspondence of the Heputillozn. Washington, D. C., March 8, 1880. Mr. Ferdinand Del.esseps, tbe dis tinguished Frenchman and proprietor of the Suez and Panama ship canals, who arrived here yesterday on the limited express train from New York, has since his arrival in this country been the re cipient of distinguished honors, aud he will certainly receive a cordial welcome to Washington. He is seventy-five years of age, and few meu years his his junior, can show such a useful and active career. The suocess of this great undertaking has been steadily growing and all mouarebs have united in hou orlng DeLesseps. The distinguished visitor will remain in Washington but three days. A social scandal is now on the boards. Senator lien Hill of Georgia is the principal character in the drama. "For much love" is the result of the sla 'ders. He should have " lieu " instead of Ben " Hill "—and avoided this unpleasant story. Cap tain Jack, Wass, and Saw a-wioh, the Utes who came here with Oruay, and went back to Colorado to negotiate for the surrender of the so-called guilty Utes, have returned to this city, ac companied by SbavaDS, Veratziz Ti>o, Johnson and Thomas. T.ie two latter Indians are prisoners, hut are under no more restraint than their compan ions. Miss Josephine Meeker was re quested to visit them ami see if she could identify the prisoners. She hi .v • ever, failed to recognize them. The employees of the Government Printing Office, to the number of one thousand, were granted an indefinite furlough yesterday, as tbe appropria tion bad run out. It is however ex pected that the Government printiri will be reimbursed by Congress at once, so that the work of the office can go on, and the discharged ones reinstated. The old Carroll Place, ap old landmark of Washington, is passing away. The celebrated Carroll family, who were once the principal owners of tbe original Districts, have become gradu ally reduced in circumstances, until now it is stated, they are so strained that it will be neoeseaiy for thera to part with their old homestead, which was the scene of so many notable gath erings, and ;-o much grandeur iu the oldeu time. A number of spiriLod citi zens having heard of these facts are making an effort to preserve the prop erty from the auctioneer's hammer. As it now is the high brick wallst are crumbling away, and tbe fine old man sion itself shows signs of decay, despite the efforts of its proud occupants. Several petitions are in circulation for signatures and are being numerously signed, asking Congress to order tbe opening on Sundays of the Smith sonian's Institute, the Congressional Library aud the United States Medi cal museum, so that the working peo ple can derive benefit from them with out losing time. General O. 0. Howard is iu the city. Tbe General has been summoned, here to tebtifv before the Senate Committee ou the Freedman's Saving Bank, rela tive to the original management of the Bank's concerns. The committee ha3 agreed upon a bill which cots off large yearly expenses that are now eating away tbe substance of tbe injured de positors. Tbe aggregate yearly reduc tion of expenses amounts to $ eluding $0,000 paid to tu commissioners.

Ah Accident at Harlans. Washington Gauze, residing at No. 817 Madison street, and employed at the Harlan & Hollingsworth shops, cut himself badly with an adze on the left leg, below the knee yesterday afternoon. Dr. Simms rendered medioal aid. WAUKM OF WflEHmuMM' R.Mrlke. reared, Much Less An ticipated—An Increase of for Taking Piece-Very Little 111.. e.tl.rncttnn Existing Between Employe and Employer. A day or two ago a man announced It for a fact that some of the wood workers in the oar shops of the Jackson k Sharp Co.would strike. About the same time it was given out that the tanners aud beamsmen in W. Jones k Co.'s morocco factory would repeat their nn snoceSBful demonstration of a few months ago, and demand $10 a week, inquiry however shows that the first statement originated through the boastful declaration of a dissatisfied la borer, who hired for a medianio and could not do his work, and that the other was wholly without foundation, la both shops the greatest harmony exists, and the workmen profit by the intelligent view which Wilmington workmen have always entertained,that strikes never pay. A careful investi gation by the Republican reveals that among certain classes of skilled labor ers there exists a feeling that their wages are inadequate, and there is of course a desire for au increase, but there is no disposition to loudly complain, inasmuch as the advance usually made at this season of the year, when the time of out door labor in creases, is taking place. There is no dissatisfaction, except among certain unpracticed workmen, who are not worth good wages, and the feeling does not amount to anything like unpleas ant relations between labor ana oapitol. At Jackson & Sharp's wages are re ported as having an upward tendency, aud might increase somewhat if work continued as plentiful as at present. Seven hundred meu are employed, and car work and ship work both show au improvement over last year. Painters average $8 and $8.50 per week, but Hist class workmeu command as high as $10 and $11. In the wood depart ment about the same prices exist and some good machanics work for $8 per week. The advance in wages over last year is 10 per cent. No serious com plaints appear to come from the tuen. it is likely that at this place the a.en will be able to make considerably more by over-work in a few weeks, though this is not official. The above was about the state of af fairs at the Harlan k Hollingsworth works, where there has been some ad vance in wages over last'rear. Tbe workmen in iron, who suft'ered more than any other class of laborers by the depression following the crash in 1878, begau to look far better wages toward the close of the year, aud iu many cases they have leceived them. At the McCullough Irou Company's Mill over one hundred and twenty men are employed. Wages have gone up here from 15 to 20 per cent. No com plaint comas from the workmen. The e is no likelihood of wages going any higher, for the prices of iron, by which they are regu'ated, has a tendency at present to subside, and will oe.aainly notoontinue upward. The pay of labor at the Diamond State Rolling Mill is understood to have increased fully 50 per cent, since bard times, i further addition is not ex pected, and none of the workmen are dissatisfied. Indeed the pay in some departments is said to be bighe" than the present stale of the iion business will prudently allow. However while an increase is not expected a reduction is equally unlikely. At the Lobdell Car Wheel Company tlxe wages of the men were not reduced when thev were cut considerably iu other establishments, and iu conse quence no rise has taken place of any account aud none is anticipated. "We employ from fourto fivehnndred meu," remarked Mr. George G. Ljbdell to the reporter. "And we are not doing as ranch work as we can do nor as much as we expect to do soon. We are right busy ihongli, aud will manufacture as many wheels this year as during any previous year. The workmeu are not dissatisfied." W. Jones & Co,, morocco manufac turers, are very busy and think the prospects for a continuance of woik quite good. It was Lets that tbe beamsmen struck some time ago, hot without success, borne of tbe strikers returned to work at old rates and oth ers found situations elsewhere. Wager have not increased much here for they did not decline during the sla Finishers are making over $1; and the cellar beamsmeu, $3 par week. Inquiry at other morocco factories showed that work was not at all s'ack, aud that dressers average $12 per week end the cellar men make $10. No in crease was expected. The carriage manufacturers reported an exceedingly pleasant outlook,which was so pronounced as to iudicate a turn of the unprecedented prosperity which the Wilmington manufacturers once enjoyed. Wages are slowly Im proving, though no decided rise was probable, but the men were Eatisiied, and good workmen exceedingly scarce and in demand. Carpenters and bricklayers are in demand and are able to command in creased wages. A conti .ctcr has said that he thought that workmen of both of these trades would he scarce consid ering the amount of work to he done s of " • to * a % sk aeon, er weet; , including the a r» A He* Appointmant. Governor Hall has re-appointed James C. Wilson Justice and Notary Public for Appoquinimink Hundred. Mr. Wilson is also Deputy Coroner, aud it was charged that when he held the inquest ou Young Rhinu at Fch: toore's Mill a week or two ago, be was! very druuk. Jester Iu Town. Dr. Jester the tootli paste man cf no- 8a ted Temperance fame, is,in town once) more and entertained quite a crowd at the corner of Fourth and Market streets on Monday evening. Ue is a very fluent talker and attracts quite a crowd around his booth. of Peraonal. W. S. Pride of the Georgetown "In quire" was in town yesterday. A in u nr me n (n— An Arabian Night. Dalny's new comedy, "An Arabian Night" was given at the Opera H^sef la of re au af e here last evening to a fair-sized audienoe, and may safely lie said to be the best thing of its kind that baa been given in Wilmington this eeason. It is intensely fnnny, aud full of laugh able sayings and humourous situations. In every respect It is original, and one of the most brilliant specimens of legitimate comedy that one meets with nowadays. Tbe plot is very happily formed. Mr. Alexander Sprinkle, a retired broker, who is also a married man with a mother-in-law, gets into a harm less intrigue with a young lady, who baa beeD left penniless at a Western railway station, and who is no one else than Rosa May bloom, tbe "Wild Rose of Yucatan," a bare back rider at a circns. While Mrs. Sprinkle is away this pet of stars and spangle' takes it into her head to call upon tbe husband and dors so. Tbe wife's mother is at home, and Sprinkle is in a terrible way to get tbe girl out of the bouse without being detected. At last tbe oldhjto comes in and be introduces tbe Wnd Rose as his niece, whom be id expect ing to visit him from Europe. To aid her erratic lover the girl tangles her self in a web of fibs and pleases tbe old lady, who conoeives tbe idea of marry ing the supposed niece to Mh Lafayette Moodle, a foppish fortune hunter. No sooner has the counterfeit niece left the scene than iu comes the real niece, but by fortunate management Sprinkle prevents a meeting at that time. Things go from bad to worse after this. The wile returns, the mother-in-law becomes suspicious, Moodle get hope lessly entangled iu his suit to the Wild Rose, and the two nieces continue to drop in on the almost deranged Sprinkle with surprising regularity. Finally things are straightened out, though no one can imagine how it will end until the close is near. Ou this plot is hung an immense amount of fun, and the audience is kept in continuous merriment all the lime. The play, aside from being a success iu itself, is well-performed by a company that is good throughout. John Drew as Sprinkle exhibits wonderful ability in taking his difficult part—but it is useless to comment upon tbe individual acting, it is all very fine. I'ossibly the most laughable situation in the whole piece is where Moodle comes upou the stage, after his disastrous meeting with the circus agent, who stops his elope ment with Wild Rose, under the im pression that he is the agent for a lival tronpe. "Da. Ci.vna."—Ou Wednesday even ing, March 8th, the exceedingly amus ing comedy, " Dr. Clyde," which is written by Mr. Roseufield will be pre sented. It is a sparkling mirth provok ing comedy and keeps the audience in a roar of laughter from first to last.

TEBItlBLE EX0L0HI09I. : (arlrlilg* naanfuctory Destroyed — I wrnlv-lmir PrrwiM Hilled. Panama, Feb. 28.—A tremendous ox plosion to place in the artillery barracks at Santiago, Chili, on Jan. 27, by which 24 persons were killed. A part of the building was in use as a manufactory of shells, cartridges, and other munitions of war, and it was sup posed that some of the workmen em ployed had carelessly dropped a loaded shell, which, exploding, produced a general catastrophe. The roofs and sides of the buildings were blown to pieces. Fragments of shells and gren ades, arms, and portions of the build ings were blown in every direction, causing many wounas to people, and much damage to houses iu the vicinity. Fifty workmen were in the building at the time, besides sentries, messen gers and others, and of these, bodies or portions thereof, of 24 were taken from the debris. Others among the emj ployes are missing but their fate is un known. A fire broke out immediately, and for a time it was feared that it would extend to the powder magazine, where about 25® tons of that explosive were stored. The firemen worked with great ener gy, however, and Boon arrested the progress of the flames. The barracks were situated on what i3 known as the pampa, which originally was well outside of the city, hut with the in crease of the population streets were laid out aud houses built in the neigh borhood, until it was quite thickly populated. Had tbe fire reached the powder magazine, the damage and loS3 would have been fearful. flic Veteran Alliance. Tbe Amalgamation Legion held an adjourned meeting last evening.
