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. The Senate Bi'l pro
poses to abolish the commissioners, and
give the management of the bank io
the comptroller of the currency.

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

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

A in u nr me n (n— An Arabian Night.
Dalny's new comedy, "An Arabian
Night" was given at the Opera H^sef
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
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
"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. It
was first brought out at ChestDut street

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.
