It ia n deader hope, relying upon tht morel integrity of a Republican Return ing Board in Southern Statca <■■1 Tn widow Butler should take off her weeds, now that .aha has found her lo* leva—a re-election to Oongress. Tana humous of war which some in peratc people a mocii t a with the present critical condition of political affairs, an hastened by no more inflammable agency than those who state that Mr. Tiiden if de mand elected should not be allowed to take his seat. This is an open boast, or threat, whichever yon may be pleased to oall it. with the Republican party, and soma of the loudest who proclaim it are reridents ot Wilmingtan, tmder the influence of party newspaper counsel. Tub action of the United States Mar shal ia thia city waa a usurpation of power, without warrant and without authority. In the first place there waa no law underlying such action, and in the second place it was not warranted by any or the slightest pre text of turbulent action. In this usurpa tion of power, the Marshal, his deputies and those who manipulated the action were the violators of public peace and 1 such are amenable to law, and to then, sooh laws aa apply should be folly extend ed. Taw* corn*LB of peaoa which come from seme of the papers are dough-faced and nniptentiooal of any good. The lead arin this work ia the Naw York Herald.

The Senate at the last session did n re-adopt it, nor did th# Hsus*. Indeed, qther body appears to have readopted any got rules, and Mr. rtWHiall says that in u day it has not been done. But even i the joint rule is dead,how ego that infiuece the inquiry aa to a grant of power to eah boas*, in the Constitution, to prevent r regulate the counting?

The ■eeond danse of the fifth artide of the Constitution 'says that 'each house determine the rules of its proceedings.'

How can the Returning Board of Lou isiana be restrained from returning it for Hayee and Wheeler (?) u a queation per tinently aeked every day. There iano way to do it The power ef returning the vote ii entirely in the hand* of the Re turning Board. Thia Board consists of the collector of the port at New Orleans, a can didata for the United States Senate, and two negroes. If there is possibility of getting an honest count out of such a Nazareth as thia, we would like to know it. Moral judgment from the people will not influence them. Committees or delegadons from the Democratic citizens of the North can have no effect or power with them. It is direct ly ex prewed in the laws governing the Re turning Board, that its sessions shall be conducted in secret, and, behind this, the highly-principled gentlemen who compose this Board will take refuge, and a delega tion of Democrats will get no nearer a su perintendence oi the count than to listen at the keyhole, or to button-hole the members as they come out. What restraint can be placed upon these men does not transpire either In law or moral suasion, for they are beyond the reach of either. in Visibility of Colorsd Lights. Experiments have been recently made st Triste for the purpose of determining how for different colored lights penetrate darks are a* follows: Six lanterns, with carefully .f -iiawyuSaAlwgw, M.J All nished with wick* and oi) of the same quality, were lighted on the beach, and observations were made by parties in a boat. At the distance of half a league the light blue lament was invisible. At the same distance the dark blue lan'.ern was scarcely visible. The white lantern was °eeu at the greatest distance of them ail. The red lantern was seen at the second,and :he green lantern was seen at the third grea'e-t distance. White, red and green tigbu have the greatest power of penetrat ing darkne**. Red and green lights are particularly recommended for lighthouses and for signals. There is about a green light a peculiarity which is this: that at a short distance it begins to look blue, and often deceives persons. For this reason, they who made the experiment suggest that, as a signal, a green light should never be used except in conjunction with red and white lights. The result of the experiments - -i~ —j Shouting thw Wrong Ntmu. (From the New Orleans Democrat.) Texas street. Sbrevep-ri, was enlivened last Saturday by s company of some hun dred negroes riding up the street shouting: "Hurrah for Tiiden and Hendricks i" They were on the way to the radical meeting in that city sod intended to be good radicals, but only mistook the names of the candi dates. The gang was shouting in this way for Tiiden, when one of the marshals of the procession dashed up to them and broke out angrilv: "Them ain't the fellers, Tii den and Rend rick*, no; its Hayes and Wheeler. You're shouting for the wrong fallen. Tha horsemen looked a little troubled and disconcerted at first, but soon recover ed and wereahouting tor Have* and Whsel er with all thir zeal, "or any udder feller dat provides da barbecue," one of them mgamouiiy remarked. At e public dinner given by the Anthro pological Society of Paris, a proposal of a singular nature, rigaed by M. M. Hovelsc que, Daily, Mortillet, Broca, Topinard and others was circulated for additional signa tures. Each of these gentlemen promises to write a will directing that his brain be sent to the Anthropological Society for inspec tion and dissection. It ia thought that by procuring the thinking organ of persons whose habit- and works are perfectly known, some light might be thrown on the laws of physico-mental organization. The scheme having been published in several Parisian papers, haa provoked a lurious at tack from the ''Universe." x A seizure has been made of a large quantity of currants, of the value of be twceen 7,000 and 3,000 pounds sterling, which had been brought to Bristol, Eng land, by a steamer from Patras. It ap pears that the vessel brought, in addition to the fruit and other produce, a quantity of lead ore, which vn stored in the ship's hold with the current-, and, in the rolling of tbs ship at sea, some of the ore,in which arsenic and antimony are found, had enter ed into the cases ofeurrents.

Travellers on the Metropolitan Rail way in London have been greatly annoyed recently by "Howling Swells," a party of noiav gentlemen who amuse themselves by veiling and shouting fearfully whenever the train they are in enters a tunnel. Two of the gang were captured and given into custody, but got off by the payment of three shillings each. A vessel sailed from Montreal the other day laden with Canadian manufactures, mostly of wood and iron, and including furniture, form implements, steam engines, and many other articles of utility, which have already found a market in Australia. The shipment is understood to be the pio of an extensive trsde for which ar rangements have already been made. Mrs. Cameron, of Hillier, Canada, ia en titled to a place among the brave women of the world. A few days ago she seized the ring in the nose of an infuriated boil, while in the act ef goring and trampling her husband, and led the animal away the dying man into an adjoining She then carried her husband to neer irom field. :he house in her arms, but be was dead. 1 he patron of a vacant benefice near Freistadt in Germany, Freiherr Paul veo Dyherra, had recently, to the great horror of the Ultramontanoe, bestowed the bene fice on on Old Catholic priest An appeal made to Berlin, but the authorities there declined to interfere, on the ground that the Falck cnurch laws of Prussia make no distinction between Catholics and Old Catholics. The Thames tncnal was flooded to such an extent, a tew days ago, aa to necessitate theeuspenaion of the entire traffic on the East London line between Wapping and Deptford Road Station. The inundation is attributed to a defect in some docks re cently opened, the foundations of which are said to be higher than the level of the tunnel. The permanent pumping appara tus hu proved inadequate. • was A sum of £1,500,000 has been allotted fn the construction of the French exhibi tion building of 1678. An aitificial waterfall will be arranged at the Troca Hero. Water will be pumped out of tii* Seine by colossal engines, which will inemaelvesbe an attractive part of the exhibition. The waterfall will be illumi nated every evening with colored and electric lights. The late Mia* Martinean left in her will a special injunction against the publication of any of fur private letter*. A London orreapondent of the Leeds "Mercury" also •vii'es: "I understand that Mias Martin eau had not only completed her autobiog raphy previous to her death, but she bmi also had it printed and corrected. All that remains to be done, in fact, is to have the ?heets bound and issued by a publisher." If they do not have very good news papers in Paris, they have plenty of them, and new one« are frequently making their appearance. On October 15. the Petit Partisien, a cheap evening journal, and Le Ralliement, with M. Tolasn as director, were issued, and a little later, L'Homme Libre, one of those Louis Blanc, was star November 1, the Revolution made iu first appearance. A rumor having reached the Imperial Foreign office in Berlin that the Colorado potato beetle had already appeared in po tato fields in Great BrittiaD, the German f overnment promptly instituted inquiries t was ascertained that the report originat ed in the fact that numerous captive potato beetles had been received in England, packed in little boxes, for entomologists to study. No live specimens have yet been found loose in garden or field in that couu principal editors is ted, aid later still on try. Some time ago an extensive excavation of the banks of the Iroquois river at a point two miles northeast of Watseka, Illinois, left exposed to view several bones of a mastodon partly petrified. The lar gest was the os temoris of the left leg, and measures seventeen inches in circumfer ence at the smallest part, now all decayed, but the bone most at time have been nearlv four feet long. All were ten feet below the surface of the ground. A peculiar horse transaction took place at Remscheid, in Germany, the other day. It waa agreed that if the horse should weigh 1,000 pounds or less, the purchaser should pay nothing for him, hot that it he weighed over 1,000 pounds, 300 marks (about $15 1 should be paid for each pound over the 1,000. Tht hor*e,on being driven on the scales, was found to weigh 1,1-18 pounds, which, under the agreement, made his price 44,400 marks, equal to about $ 11 , 000 .
