The Milton Gold Jewelry Com
pany have thus far enjoyed a career of uninterrupted,
yet well deserved success. Thousands of personshave
daily visited their show-room, the Winter Garden Pal
ace, No. 667 Broadway, under the Grand Central
Hotel, and all have been amazed at the magnificence of
the display, and the profusion of goods exhibited for
Bale at the uniform price, One Dollar.
Milton is now worn by the ELITE of thia
country as well as by the middle classes. Its merit is
universally conceded. The guarantees of the company
have been realized; their goods retaining their color
and brilliancy, and wearing as well as the virgin gold.
The company flattered by their success in this city,
have originated some elegant designs of purest Milton
Gold, finished in a style to compete with the most cost
ly jewelry especially for the American trade. The finest
invoice of these goods, far superior to any yet offered
for sale, will be opened to-morrow for the first time,
and the agents will take pleasure in exhibiting them for
the approval of the most critical. For elegance and
newness of designs, and for excellence of material they
surpass any jewelry ever yet offered to the public. Be
side the larger assortment of jewelry, the agents at their
store-room, the Original Dollar Store, No. 667 Broad
way, opposite Bond street, have for sale at the uniform
rate of One Dollar each, a full line of fancy goods,
fans, parasols, ladie’s undergarments, dolls towels,
silver ware, vases, brackets, pen-knives, meerschaum
pipes, &c. Particular attention is requested to the
“Book department,” in which will be found the stand
ard and latest works.

[NOTICE.—For want of space, many questions received
remain unanswered for some time. Each qu jry, if legit
imate, will in its turn receive proper attention. We must
request our correspondents to write plainly and state
their wishes concisely, if they would receive concise an
swers. M any notes that are received are so nearly illegi
ble that they find their way at once to the waste-basket.
Enquirer.— The Marseillaise Hymn
was the production of Rouget de Lille, a French officer
Of Engineers, who was quartered at Strasbourg, in the
year 1791, when Marshal Luckner commanded the army,
at that time entirely composed of young conscripts.
The Marshal was to march on the following morning of
a certain day, and late in the previous evening he in
quired if there were any men of a musical or poetical
genius, who could compose a soul-inspiring song, to ani
mate his young soldiers. Some one mentioned Captain
Rouget de Lille, who was immediately ordered into the
presence of the Marshal, to receive his commands upon
the subject, which having been given, and a promise
made by Do Lille that a song would be ready on the fol
lowing morning, he went to his quarters; and during
the night he not only wrote the song in question, but
also set it to music, and next morning the army marched
to its tune, and carried everything before it, with an en
thusiasm only equaled by absolute frenzy. The original
composition is said to have been in the possession of the
late Louis PhiUippe. The name “Marseillaise” was
given to it long after its first use, when a body of troops
entered Paris from Marseilles, playing the air.
Adolphus.— We cannot sympathize
with your alleged grievance. On the contrary, we think
that the young lady’s father was perfectly right in ob
jecting to you as a son-in-law on the ground of your
being an idler, and living on your industrious relations.
That is a perfectly valid objection. The idle man in
such a case is a sponge upon the world, and a curse to
his fellow creatures. Every man that thus remains
idle, is adding to the misery of the world—is really
injuring the morals and happiness of the human family,
and should be held responsible for it. What would be
our fate, if we were all to become idlers ? Thp humble
wood-sawyer is a better member of society than the fop
without brains or employment. Every one should be
employed in fashioning some article of use, or extend
ing tho dominion of thought—in simplifying the means
of subsistence, or in some other way to be beneficial to
his fellow creatures. The idler is apt, sooner or lates* to
become a fit candidate for the penitentiary.
J, li. T.— The following is a copy
of Section 43, in Article 1., of the Revised Statutes for
the State of New York, and gives you the information
you require:
“Whenever any ship or vessel shall have been run
down or run foul of by any other ship or vessel, through
the neglipence or willful misconduct of those navigating
such other ship or vessel, and shall thereby have sus
tained damage to the extent of fifty dollars or upward,
the owner of said ship or vessel so sustaining damage,
shall have a lien upon the ship or vessel causing such
damage in manner aforesaid, ner tackle, apparel and
furniture, to the extent of such damage. The master,
owner, agent, or consignee of the ship or vessel so re
ceiving damage, may make an application in writing, io
the same officer authorized under the third section of
title eight of chapter eight of the third part of the Ro
vised btatutes, setting forth the name of the ship or
vessel causing the damage, and the manuor in which
said damage was done, and the amount of said damage;
and said application shall be verified bv the owner or
master navigating the vessel so damaged, and the tacts
contained m said affidavit shall also ba verified by one
or more disinterested witnesses.”
Poor Jersey.— “l am a resident of
the State of New Jersey, and 1 am compelled to resort
to law in order to collect a sum of money from a person,
a resident of and carrying on business in New York.
Will you please inform me to which of the courts I will
have to apply for redress, and will I have to give security
for the costs, &c- ?” You will require to take the case
into either of the following courts, viz.: Tho Bupreme,
the Superior, or the Court of Common Pleas. As you
are a non-resident of this State (New York), you will
require to give security for the costs.
Scottie. — The battle of Bannock
burn was fought on the 25th of June, 1314—the Scotch
were victorious; those of Halidonhill, July 29,1333, and
August 26, 1346—the English were victorious; that of
Nevill’s-croas, in 1347—the English were victorious; that
of Otterbourne, July 31, 1388—the English were victori
ous; that of Flodden, September 9, 1513—the English
were victorious; that of Dunbar, Septembers, 1650—the
English were victorious; that of Culloden, April 17,
1746—the English were victorious.
II F.— A’s security for B ceased
When the latter had judgment given in his favor in the
lower court, unless there was a special clause to the con
trary effect in the bond which A originally gave for
costs. As soon as B’s opponent took the matter into the
Court of Appeals, he was the person to give security for
costs. When judgment was given in favor of B in the
first instance, A’s bond for costs ceased to exist; his re
sponsibility expired with the favorable judgment. Yes.
Briton. — The Duke of Edinburgh
was born at Windsor Castle on the 6th of August, 1844;
entered the Royal Navy, August, 1858; became lieuten
ant in 1863, captain in 1866; served on board the Eury-
Blus, 1858-61; the St. George, 1861-63; the Racoon, 1863-
66; and was appointed to the command of the Galatea
in January, 1867. He was introduced to the Privy
Council, May 9, 1866.
Housekeeper.— To clean black cloth,
dissolve one ounce of bicarbonate of ammonia in one
quart of warm water. With this liquid rub the cloth,
using a piece of flannel or black cloth for the purpose.
After the application of this solution, clean the cloth
well with clear water; dry and iron it, brushing the cloth
Crom time to time in the direction of the fibre,
TF. and ll.— College place was
never called West Broadway. It has borne its present
name since ever it was a street. Chapel street ran from
Chambers street to somewhere in the neighborhood of
Leonard. In 1838 or 1810 it was widened and lengthened
to Canal street, and re-christened by the name of West
Broadway.
Goodenough.—“ 1. What time was
Barnum’s Museum at the corner of Broadway and Ann
•treet, burnt?” On the 13th July, J 865. “2. When was
it burned when it was situated on Broadway, near
Spring?” On the 2d March, 1863. “3. In what year
was the nickel coin struck ?” In 1856.
A. J.— “l served as a corporal in a
New York State Militia regiment three months, on the
outbreak of the war. Is there any pension money com
ing to us for three months’ service ?” Three months
men are not entitled to any money under the Equaliza
tion Bounty Law.
Polly.— The best remedy for super
fluous hair is shaving; but by a patient and judicious
use of the tweezers, hair growing in places where it is a
disfigurement may be extirpated. The Indians destroy
their beards in that manner.
Ignoramus.— Muller, who murder
■ed Mr. Briggs, in London, was executed at Newgate on
the 14th of November, 1864. The five pirates of the
Flowery Land were hanged also at Newgate on the Ist
Of August in the same year.
Dickey.— Richard 111. was the
only king of England, after the Conquest, who fell in
battle. He was the second who fought in his crown—
Henry V., Shakspere'B Hal, being the first to do so at
Agincourt.
J. L. — The grandfather being still
alive at the time, the grandson would still be called
Robert Brown, Junior, occupying the same position in
that respect which his father had held prior to his de
cease.
F. B. S.— Madame "Jenny Lind’’
made her first appearance in London, in the part of Alice,
in Meyerbeer’s opera of “ Robert le Diable,” at Her
Majesty’s Theatre, on the 4th of May, 1857.
Abeonego.— We should think, in-
Btead of bis being a “crack” lawyer, he was a cracked
one. He certainly could not be very much of a gentle
man, and yet be a very good lawyer.
Lady's Man.— The proper arm to
Offer a lady when out walking is the left one, the right
being by etiquette supposed to be kept at liberty for her
protection.
Inquirer.— G-eorge Stephenson was
torn in the year 1781, in the village of Wjlam, North
umberland county, about eight miles from New-castle
pn-Tyne.
J. Squires.— Please put your ques-
Hon in a more definite form, stating to what particular
proclamation by General Grant you refer,
■Lotus.—The Prince Imperial is
now m his sixteenth year, having been born on the 10th
of March, 1856.
In order to conform to the present
fashion of diminutives, Minnie, Vinnie, Lottie,
and the rest, it is proposed to modernize the
too severe Scriptural names. Ruth should
be changed to Ruthie ; Boaz to Boozio ; Hagar
to Haggie; Job to Jobbie; and the Apostles to
Mattie, 'Jarkie. Lukie- wl Johnnie.

SEW YORK, JUNE 18, 1871.
THE NEXT STATE SENATE? -
For the past two years, the Democratic party
has had full control of the State of Now York.
Governor, Senate, and the Assembly were
against ue, and the changes resulting have
been considerable in number, radical in char
acter, and, in the main, disastrous in result.
This Fall, tho Republican party have an oppor
tunity to put a check upon Democratic misrule,
extravagance, and corruption. True it is th fit
there is no Governor to be elected until No
vember, 1873 ; but tho co-ordinate branches of
the Legislature undergo an entire change.
The members of tho State Senate, thirty-two
in number, are all to be passed upon by the
people at the next election. The question of
Senatorial succession, therefore, is one of great
importance, because with a Bepublican ma
jority there, no little influence would be exor
cised as against a Democratic Governor and a
lower House. To tho Senate our party lead
ers should look with the utmost care ; all per
sonal prejudices which may jeopardize ulti
mate victory; all bickerings resulting from
previous dissensions ; all local differences and
petty revenges; all disturbances of faction,
should be laid aside and lost in the more im
portant work of securing Republican ascend
ancy in the State Senate of 1872. Admit, for
argument, and for that only, that the Repub
licans lose the State ticket next Fail; admit,
also, that the popular branch of the Legisla
ture shall be lost to us by the fraudulent can
vassing of returns, as it was last Fall, even
then, and more than ever, must we carry the
Senate.
There is this time an extra reason for un
usual endeavor. The thirty-two Senators
chosen next Fall hold over to 1874, and the
Legislature of 1873, on joint ballot, will select
a successor to Roscoe Conkling in the august
Senate of tho United States. The State Senate,
secured next Fall, will therefore give the Re
publican party in tho State more than a fair
chance to carry the Assembly of 1873.
This advantage is obtainable, but the strug
gle, therefore, will be long, fierce, and per
haps doubtful. The opposition will not scru
ple at the means ; a million of dollars will be
ready for such saleable commodities as the
Chatauqua Winans; hordes of ballot-box staff
ers, repeaters and dishonest canvassers, will
be pressed into service, and almost any crime
committed to secure the desired result—a
Democratic successor to Conkling.
Now how to secure the Senate. New York
has five districts and Kings two, which are
pretty strongly Democratic. The first dis
trict Suffolk, Queens and Richmond counties
ought to go Republican, but without that there
are seventeen districts which are sure for the
Republican party in a fair count. The Oneida
county district was carried two years ago by a
Democrat (Sanford) by twenty-two majority.
Isaiah Blood, now deceased, carried tho Sara
toga district, a result perfectly surprising, and
not likely to be repeated. The Erie, Albany,
and Westchester county districts added to the
seven other mentioned, will give the Demo
crats ten out of the thirty-two. With careful at
tention and good nominations, these are all
which they can carry. The want of organiza
tion and work should not jeopardize these re
sults.
THE OVATION TO HORACE GREELEY.
The reception to Horace Greeley on last
Monday was the greatest gathering in num
bers that has ever been collected together in
this city, to greet any man other than a Presi
dent of the United States. The gathering
was notable, not alone in consequence of the
great numbers present, nor from the en
thusiasm with which Mr. Greeley was received,
but, also, because of the men who were pres
ent to show their respect for the man who
has done more than any other man in this
country to lead the people away from their
early prejudices, and to clear the high places
of our land of those who believed that one
class of men had no rights which another
class were bound, to respect. The rooms of
the Lincoln Club were crowded with faces
which have been familiar to us since the
Republican party put its first Presidential can
didate in the field. There were the old sol
diers of the part?—the men who had severed
themselves from tho parties of their youth,
because they saw that Republicanism repre
sented right and justice, to the weak and
lowly as well as to the rich and mighty ; there
were the younger, no less staunch fighters in
the good cause, who joined the Republican
party when tho old flag was in peril, because
the recognized that party as for the “ Union,
one and inseparable;” and there were those
who have but reached manhood, but who are
yet to fill places as the leaders of thought,
now held by such veterans as Greeley, Grin
nell, Slosson, Evarts, Hutchins, etc. The
gathering was in every way worthy of the
man in whose honor, without effort and with
out parade, the sound and trusty Republicans
had come together; and the speech to which
Mr. Greeley treated his admirers was frank,
wise, and statesmanlike, filled from beginning
to end with peaceful counsel and hopeful
wishes for the future good and prosperity
of all parts of our common country. The re
ception- which Mr. Greeley got from the Re
publicans of this city on Monday, sets at rest
all doubts which some may have entertained
as to the estimation in which all loyal Repub
licans hold the man who has been, as Moses
H. Grinnell gracefully said, tho Ine-long
“champion of right and justice, regardless of
popular clamor or the blaiidishments of
power.”
Mb. Thurlow Weed and daughter
departed yesterday in the steamer Manhattan
on a visit to Europe. Many of the veteran
politician’s old friends were present to bid him
good-by and a god-speea. ‘ On Friday evening
Mr. Weed was serenaded at his residence. We
wish Mr. Weed a pleasant voyage, and sincerely
hope he will return to us sufficiently re-estab
lished in health to once more aid his old politi
cal friends with bis wise counsel in future
campaigns.
NEW YORK DISPATCH.
WHAT WILL OHIO DO ?
New Hampshire and Connecticut each took
a “.departure” this year. Let the one offset
the other. The next indication of popular
feeling as recorded by a popular vote will come
from the States which hold elections in Octo
ber next. Pennsylvania and Indiana have not
yet set a squadron in the field. The strong
state of Ohio has. The Democrats have nom
inated as candidate for Governor, General
George W. McCook, and he has accepted in a
speech calculated to iqake the “new depar
ture” resolutions almost non-understandable.
Until his opponent is placed in the field, the
campaign will not wax warm; but the indica
tions are that McCook will be terribly trounced
in October. Ho is known to be tricky; his
speech proves him blatant and indiscreet. His
nomination was understood to be in direct op
position to the feelings, although not the
efforts, of the late Hon. C. L. Vallandigham;
and now that tho latter is dead, tho feeling of
revulsion natural in the event of a sudden
death like his, will set in strongly against
McCook.
In New Hampshire, recently, by a mis
take, from general apathy, inattention, neglect,
and tho folly of Federal officials, tho Demo
crats saw daylight. In Ohio they will not re
peat this. McCook will be beaten not loss than
15,000 votes on the total white vote, with fully
15,000 colored voters to roly upon as a reserve.
For certain reasons, McCook is weak, and will
prove so. At the New York Convention, where
Ohio was strong for Pendleton, McCook flirted
with Chase. Better, thought he, to have the
Democratic national ticket defeated than for
Ohio to remain unconsidered, unfelt. AU the
West, except Ohio, was strong or persuadable
for Hendricks ; on the last ballot, Hendricks
was in reality nominated before the State of
Ohio was reached in alphabetical order. Then
rose General McCook, determined that tho
West should not have tho candidate, if that
candidate was to be Hendricks, and he pre
sented, in a short, forcible speech, the name
of Horatio Seymour, of New York. This was
one of bis tricks, and his colleagues, in the
main, were left unconsidored. The Convention
swung for Seymour, while that gentleman ran
away. Nearly every Democrat who left Tam
many Hall on that day, felt that party success
was impossible. The result proved so.
Hendricks was cleverly cheated out of a nom
ination, the Democracy out of a chance for
victory, and the entire blame rested, and still
rests, upon the personal spite or ill-advised
action of Gen. McCook. Will Hendricks forget
this? Will his friends hesitate to avenge
themselves ? By no means ; and the early sun
of next October will look down upon a Repub
lican victory in round thousands, as is the
fact that it will look down at all. But worse
than all this, there is now a cry out among the
Democratic faithful that McCook was nomi
nated on a false count. This shows, if it shows
anything, that he has false friends, unsatisfied
supporters, and enemies oven in his own party.
Vallandigham is dead, but he is scarcely more
so than will be McCook on the day after the
votes for Governor shall be counted in October
next. Pennsylvania and Indiana will feel the
result of this Democratic defection, and if all
three declare against tho Democracy, Pendle
ton, Hancock and Hendricks will be practically
out of the race for tho Democratic Presidential
nomination in tho Fall of 1872.
THE SOCIETY INTERNATIONAL.
Surely nothing more atrocious than this
proclamation of tho Society International has
ever been given to the public :
We are disarmed, but not conquered, and are still one
hundred thousand strong. Favre and Trochu were the
authors of our misfortunes, aided by capital and the
priesthood. Wo accept the responsibility of the con
flagrations. We must have no interior deputies; no
divisions at the polls. Reaction took away our arms,
but not our votes. Vive la Social Sepublique I Vite la
Commune I
Can these men, who “ accept the responsi
bility of the conflagrations,” be aught but lu
natics or assassins ? No more wanton or in
sane crime was ever committed than the at
tempted destruction of the entire city of Paris.
How is it possible that the men who tried to
deprive their unoffending fellows of habita
tions, who murdered in cold blood all who did
not join them in their mad revelry, and who
spoke of the Almighty as “ the person called
God,” should claim to be republicans, or ex
pect to get tho sympathy of republicans, is
something which we cannot understand. A
republican is one who,while trying to convince
others of the justice of his views, still has re
spect for and acknowledges the right of others
to entertain whatever views may seem to them
the best. Republicanism, as understood at
tho present time, means liberty based upon
just and equitable laws. Laws cannot be equit
able which permit but the expression of one
set of opinions. The government of the Com
mune in Paris was of the worst sort of mobo
cratic despotism—a meaner, viler, more blood
thirsty despotism than has existed in any
country in Europe since the death of Bomba,
King of Naples. Under the Commune, no
opinions whatever were uttered. Tho mob
took up a cry, and ali within their power had
to shriek it out, or take the consequences—
usually a speedy and brutal death. It is ut
terly futile for tho madmen of the Society In
ternational to attempt to got the sympathy of
republicans of this or any civilized country.
Their short rule in Paris has allied them for
ever in infamy with the wretches of the Reign
of Terror, and no man who hates murderers
and thieves can regard them with other feel
ings than those of undisguised horror.
BOWEN AND T^e’ FEMALE RIGHTERS.
The abiding and enduring love of a true wife
for her husband, in good or evil fortune, has
been sung by poets, praised by orators, and
even enthusiastically dilated on by preachers
and philosophers ; but we have never heard of
an instance where the love of one woman for
another woman’s husband was regarded as an
exhibition of true womanly heroism. Our own
time, however, presents a case of this kind.
Congressman Bowen having been found guilty
of bigamy, was sentenced to State Prison for
two years. His second wife, who wasn’t his
wife at all, clung to him, declaring that if he
was guilty, she was equally so, that she was
anxious to accompany him to his prison and
share his misery, and that she would be true to
him till he returned to her loving arms. Most
people were disgusted at this exhibition—this
announcement that the lady could sec nothing
wrong in a man breaking the laws of religion
as well as those of tho land. The action of
this wife, who is not a wife, would not be re
garded as of any consequence, but that the
pernicious Female Righters have commenced
deifying her, calling her heroic and noble
minded, and praising her in extravagant lan
guage for her moral daring in setting the “ un
just” laws of man at defiance. Of course, they
have not a word of sympathy for the true wife.
She is like the law, an obstacle in the way of
Mr. Bowen’s indulging his Free Love peculiari
ties, and she has shown herself an enemy to
free and easy interpretation of marital duty.
The infamous scolds, the immoral women
righters, have already sot about procuring a
pardon for Bowen. The petition isn’t likely to
do him much good. Tho President is well
aware that the public will resent any interfer
ence with a sentence in every way so just as
that which Bowen has received. He knows
that the endorsement of the character of any
man or woman by the Female Righters is
equivalent to telling the public that such per
son is immoral, for these miserable hags make
heroes only out of such material Laura D.
Fair, C. C. Bowen, and Mrs. Cunningham.
They seek in the dunghill and hulks for mate
rial for hero-worship. Tho President cannot
afford to ally himself with this gang of immor
al women by pardoning Bowen.
The recent earthquake at Valpa
raiso ought to be ashamed of itself. One
young lady, living near Plaza Victoria, was in
the bath when the shock came, and rushed
into the square entirely naked. After the
shock had passed, and subsiding terror per
mitted her to realize her situation, she found
herself standing near a man who had nothing
on but his shirt. In an agony of shame she
clutched at tho man’s shirt, tore it from his
back, and, wrapping it around her waist,
rushed into the house, leaving ths man as en
tirely naked as a moment before she had been
herself
DEATH OF C. L. VALLANDIGHAM.
Our readers will learn with regret that Mr.
Clement L. Vallandigham died yesterday morn
ing, from tho wound he had given himself the
day before, while explaining to his fellow-coun
sellor in the McGehan murder case, how it was
possible that what was thought to be murder
was most likely accidental shooting. We have
always disagreed with Mr. Vallandigham on
matters political; but have invariably found
him a frank, outspoken opponent, who did his
utmost for bis side in the contest, but never in
a base way. Mr. Vallandigham was a lawyer
of erudition, a political speaker of pleasing ad
dress, and a gentleman whose private charac
ter was irreproachable. He was a man whom
the country could ill afford to lose, for though,
to our view, often wrong in the course which
he took, there never was a suspicion that he
was actuated by any mean personal motive.
He loaves in his own party few men who were
his peers m mental ability, and none who sur
passed him in straightforward frankness of
character. He will be regretted by mon of all
political parties. ' Wo extract from tho Even
ing Post, of Saturday, the following brief sketch
of Mr. Vallandigham’s career:
Mr. Vallandigham was born in New Lisbon, Columbia
county, Ohio, in 1822. He received a liberal edudation
at Jefferson College, and spent a few months in Mary
land as a teacher. In 1840 he began the study of law, and
in 1842 was admitted to the bar in Ohio. He entered
public life in 1845, being elected to the Ohio Legislature.
From 1847 to 1849 he edited a democratic journal at Day
ton, and from that time until his death he has been a
prominent leader of the national democratic party.
Mr. Vallandigham was first elected to Congress in
1856. and served on the Committee on Territories during
the Thirty-fifth and Thirty-sixth Congress. He was re
elected to tli-e Thirty-seventh Congress, and was prom
inentinhis bold defense of the rebels and defiance of
the Government. In 1863 he was arrested by military
orders, and bpmshed to the Southern States. He. how
ever, escaped from there byway of the West Indies and
Canada, and returned to Ohio after an absence of a few
months. During his banishment the democrats nomi
nated him for Governor, but he was defeated at the
polls by a majority of more than one hundred thousand.
Since then he has been practicing his profession, and

fort to induce the democratic party to take a ’new de

former political teaching.
THE FUTURE OF GREAT BRITAIN.
A work has recently appeared in England,
and caused great excitement, which purports
to be a conversation held in the twentieth
century, tolling how Great Britain lost its
prestige among the nations. It shows how
the Prussians wont to England, captured Lon
don as they recently took Paris, and reduced
the British lion to the most spiritless and
tamed of animals. All this might happen, of
course, if the government of Great Britain did
nothing to prevent it. But Great Britain has
never been accused of undue amiability. Her
statesmen have always been jealous of her
rights, and probably always will be. The re
cent war has put a new look on tbe map of
Europe. Prussia is now master of nations,
and Franco humbled, defeated, heavily in debt,
torn by civil conflict, and reduced to a second
rate power. Previous to this, Prussia would
never have thought of attempting to humble
Great Britain. Bismarck has not yet studied
up tbe subject, Von Moltke has never mapped
out the situation. Suppose they now begin
the work, will not England also begin a work
which shall servo in tho event of defense? If
so, what is her probable course of action ?
In India she has millions of subjects, who
could, in a few years, be drilled as soldiers, fed
on rice, and willing to serve in an army for
next to nothing as wages. Wild, strong,
healthy, tractable enough under proper re
straint, they would make a military force under
English officers which would enable Great
Britain to hold all Europe in check. All this
would cost nothing as in comparison to the
usual expense of a military force.
Great Britain has the money, ships, powder,
and munitions necessary. India could be made
to fill her armies to the number of millions of
men. Malta, Gibraltar, Canada, and various
points in India can be used as training schools,
and thus before Prussia could get ready to kill
her own subjects in a war of conquest, Great
Britain could meet her with armies of her East
Indian subjects, in comparison with whose
fierceness the vaunted Uhlan would pale in his
ineffectual military fires.
Taking tbe one supposition as against the
other, Great Britain does not seem to be vry
badly in need of a council of physicians.
Prussia was humbled by France in 1814; she
avenged herself in 1871—more than fifty years
later. She will hardly risk the results of her
unexpectedly wonderful campaign by attempt
ing new victories until fully prepared. Great
Britain could well afford to exchange the cheap
lives of half a million barbarians for such a
slice of Prussia as fte great Napoleon once
compelled King William’s father and mother
to relinquish.
BOSTON AND THE NEW YORK NINTH.
We think that the authorities of Boston have
shown much churlishness in their treatment
of the Ninth Regiment of this city. Every
favor which Colonel Fisk has asked from them
for his regiment has been denied, and that,
too, in curt language. Boston need not have
been ashamed to have shown the Ninth Regi
ment all courtesy, for there are few regiments
of militia in this country which have achieved
a reputation for equal soldier-like qualities.
In May, 1861, the regiment departed for the
seat of war, from which it did not return until
the Summer of 1864. During its services in
the field, it gained honor for its bravery, Its
discipline, and the excellent character of its
men and officers. It participated in many o-f
tho most fearful struggles in the Valley of the
Shenandoah, and always won the commenda
tions of the commanding general. It returned
to this city with riddled banners and shat
tered ranks, and then it reorganized. After
a time, the regiment chose James Fisk,
Jr., who has shown himself a capable offi
cer, and generous, genial gentleman in all
his relations with the mon under his com
mand. Since Fisk has been colonel, the regi
ment has been greatly strengthened in num
bers, and there are few of our regiments which
equal it in tho perfection of its drill, and none
which surpass it in the character of tbe men
composing it. Boston would have honored
itself by showing courtesy and kindness to a
regiment with a fame so well-known as that of
the New York Ninth.
The Grand Duke Alexis of Russia.
—Dispatches from St. Petersburg!] announce
that the Grand Duke Alexis will leave Cron
stadt in August, on his visit to this country.
This announcement will create a sensation
among our ladies of the upper crust. If there
is anything that our aristocratic republican
dames admire, above all things, it is a live
lord. We can’t forget how disgustingly toady
ish they acted to the Prince of Wales and Jap
anese Tommy. We hope they have learned
a little sense since those days, and that they
will never again bring the blush of shame to
tho cheek of the men of this land by their con
temptible snobbishness, their foolish deifica
tion of titled asses, and their silly aping of
foreign subservience. Tho Grand Duke Alexis
should be treated with courtesy by everybody
if he shows himself worthy, but American la
dies and gentlemen should bo above servilely
flattering him because he is born to the purple.
Beaten at His Own Game.—Every
thing is not entirely lovely in the ranks of the
re-organizers. Already troubles have sprung
up between Messrs. Schultz and Orton on the
one side, and Tom Murphy on the other. The
two first gentlemen did not form the districts
entirely in Mr. Murphy’s interest, and he is
very indignant. After all his work, he finds
thathe has been euchred—that Messrs. Schultz
and Orton have imitated tho “heathen Chi
nee,” and beaten him at a game which they
“ did not understand.” Murphy, like Bill Nye,
thought the cards “ stocked,” and that all he
had to do was to pick up his hand and play it.
He found, however, on raising it, that the
cards had been “stocked” to give Mr. A. B.
Cornell the winning hand. And so Murphy is
now out in the cold in his own reorganized as
sociations. Will he call on tho State Central
Committee to order another reorganization, or
will he acknowledge himself beaten at hia own
game, and accept the situation ?
The author of this is sound: “Any
body who supposes that lacking a girl iu a
back room will prevent her from knowing what
love means, might as well try to keep straw
berries from blushing in June, by whispering
in her ears about the snow we had last Winter-
A Pigmy’s Attempt.—Notwithstand
ing that it waa given out in tho Custom House
that any of the employees who should attend
the Greeley reception would be instantly dis
missed, tho meeting was very large in num
bers, and many customs officers wore present.
These men do not care to lose their positions,
but they admire Mr. Greeley, and have been
in too many hard fights, under his leadership,
to abstain from doing him honor when tho oc
casion presented. When a man of Tom Mur
phy’s calibre undertakes to crush men of Mr.
Greeley’s stamp, ho gets a bigger job on his
hands than he can handle. It’s as though
Tom Thumb were to attempt to carry tho
Welsh giant. It is useless, however, to warn
Tom against doing foolish things. When ho
stops them, he’ll be a candidate for a position
in a grave-yard.

A cotempobaey says : “ A Western
sportsman was asked recently what kind of a
place he thought heaven to be, and ho replied :
‘I would have it a boundloss prairie, with an
eternal September, and I’d have with me an
everlastin’ gun and a nevor-dyin’ dog.’ ” Each
one has his own opinion of heaven and hell.
The people near the North Pole think that
heaven is a place of eternal sunshine and heat,
and others think with Tennyson that it is a
place
“ Where fells not hail, or rain, or any snow,
Nor ever wind blows loudly; but it lies
Deep-meadowed, happy, fair with oronard lawns
And bowery hollows crowned with Summer sea.”
Others think it a place whore wings are put
on, and where there is no employment but the
singing of songs of praise. We remember
once being in a lager beer saloon in company
with a stout friend. The walls of the saloon
were frescoed, and one of the pictures repre
sented angels flying about, and playing on
harps and lyres. Our friend looked at this
picture meditatively for a few minutes, and
then burst out with : “ That isn’t my idea of
heaven, at all. Now how would I look flying
around heaven, dressed in my own innocence,
with a pair of wings on my shoulders, and
singing Methodist hymns ? My idea of heaven
is an immense lager beer saloon, with attentive
waiters, cosy chairs, an occasional game of
euchre, and no score to settle when the time
comes to take your winks. That would be
comfortable and jolly, and a never-ending
pleasure.”
Miss Delia Roberts, a Kentucky
school-teacher, twenty-two years of age, hung
herself, recently, because of her love for one
of her boy pupils, a lad not yet fourteen. On
the evening before her death, she wont to the
boy’s house, and, calling him to the gate, said :
“Ned, you will never see me again. When
you grow to be a man, and marry, tell your
wife about a woman, old enough to be your
mother, who died on your account.” Thus
saying, she clasped the object of her strange
passion to her bosom, and was never seen
alive again. After considering this young
lady’s case very profoundly in all its bearings,
we are convinced that she did the wisest thing
possible under the circumstances. Had she
lived much longer, it is likely that an asylum
for first-class idiots would have received her.
The work of restoring the long
buried theatre at Pompeii is at length com
pleted. Tho impressario, Signor Lannia, has
posted on each side of the entrance a petition
begging the public to accord him “ the same
patronage as that awarded to his predecessor,
Dominus Marius Quintus Monitius, Who sud
denly quitted his post one thousand years ago,
driven out by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius,
in which it is feared he must have perished, as
he never returned to the theatre.” The open
ing piece is to be “La Figlia del Reggimento.”
The papers suggest that it ought rather to be
“L’Ultimo Giorno di Pompeii,” with a sensa
tion scene which might include the audience.
A rather novel proposition is that
mooted by the Houston correspondent of the
Galveston News. Announcing, or, rather,
"hailing” the advent in that city of a tide of
“strong-minded tailors,”he adduces tho sin
gular conclusion that “this is the kind of men
needed to develop the abundant agricultural
and mineral wealth of the State." This isn't
exactly clear to us. Still, the correspondent
may have sources of information which are not
open to the common herd, and may have
learned that the tailors are going to Texas
with intent to rip open the seams of tho earth,
and thus let out the hidden minerals.
Walter L. Clark and Isaac B. Con
over have established, at No. 274 Third avenue,
a store for the sale of blank books, stationery,
music, piano-fortes, parlor organs, and other
musical instruments. If attention to business
and courtesy to customers will have their due
effect with the purchasing public, we are con
vinced that Messrs. Clark & Conover won’t
have a blank book to exhibit, nor a stationary
trade to growl over at the close of the year.
They are both practical business men, honest
in their dealings, and worthy and capable of
doing the biggest sort of business. Call, and
you’ll “know bow it is yourselves.”
That “ wonders will never cease ”
is not a novel nor very profound remark, but
occasionally it fits so well that we have to use
it. Tho occasion in this instance for its use is
the following paragragh from a Virginia paper:
“A colored man, who found a pocket-book in
Petersburg, Ya., a few days ago, containing
something over $l5O, returned it to its owner
the same afternoon. And a Richmond negro,
who bought a pair of old trowsors of a lady for
a dollar, found, on taking them home, a $5
greenback in one of the pockets, and took it to
the lady at once.”
The Sioux City Times tells of a
Norwegian girl “whoso chastity heretofore
has never been questioned, and who is and has
been for some time employed as a domestic in
tho family of a Sioux City clergyman. She
gave birth to a beautiful femalo child a few
weeks ago, and on being questioned as to its
paternity, solemnly declared, and still persists
in declaring, that its existence was merely a
freak of nature—in other words, that it has no
human father.” If that young lady hadn’t
lived so long in a minister’s family, we should
hesitate about believing her story.
A Calieorkia lady tells with a rel
ish how she gave mortal offense to one of the
secondary joints of the High Commission.
She was praising the Golden State. “Aw,
yes,” said the gentleman; “fine place, no
doubt, but shouldn’t lil:o to live there, you
know. You have earthquakes there, and they
are such shocking nuisances.” The lady
laughed, and said io a bystander : “What an
excellent joke I He calls earthquakes ‘ shock
ing nuisances.’ ” “ Madam,” said the sup
posed wit, moving away -with offended dig
nity, “ I never pun. It’s so dused vulgaw, you

An acidulous old girl, who has
worn out her temper and lost her opportuni
ties for matrimony by running to hen conven
tions, has at length located herself as teacher
in a female seminary. She goes on awfully
about the little darlings under her oare, de
claring that if a young man could only live for
a month at the school, among the grown-up
girls there, and witness their daily quarrels,
their many small vices of character, their
dirty personal habits, etc., he would never
marry or believe in a woman so long as ho
lived.
A Democrat who was electioneer
ing at the recent vote in Frankfort, Kentucky,
met an argument which he could not answer.
He was abusing the Republicans, and was
urging a negro to vote the Demooratio ticket,
when the latter exclaimed : “ Now, colonel, it
may be that dere’s a good deal in what you’ve
been saying, but den, colonel, you knows, and
I knows, and all tho colored people knows,
where we niggers would be if the Democrats
was king again.” The “ colonel” thought he
would go and vote again.
The word “gentleman ” occurs 452

A well-known young lady of North
ampton, Massachusetts, caused some excite
ment at that place a few afternoons since by
appearing on Main street, in her usually ele
gant attire, leading a cow. It seems that her
grandfather had jokingly promised her his best
cow if she would lead it from his house to that
of her father, one-half of a mile distant, and
ber father also promised to “throw in” a fine
gold watch. The feat was promptly performed,
and the young lady now rejoices in the posses

Senator Wm. Sprague, of Rhode
Island, was, on the Bth of June, elected Presi
dent of the Providence and New York Steam

as Senator Sprague is one of the clearest

Odell still continues to be the agent in this
city of tho company. So efficient and trust
worthy an officer could not well be spared by
any company which had experience of bis
worth.
A little girl, not yet twelve years
of age, was brought before a New Orleans
magistrate, recently, for street-walking. She
told her story in just these words : “I was
pushed into tho street by my aunt Jane, three
years ago, and have been forced to look out
for myself ever since.” Let us continue to
send missionaries abroad to convert the
heathen, for isn’t this child’s case a proof that
there are no heathen in our own land ?
The latest dodge in the thieving

The latest way the ladies of Chi

give up their seats in cars is, by sitting down
in their laps. The very heavy and old and
ugly find seats in plenty now when they enter

men seem to take their punishment as though
it were a good joke.
The sad story of Cleopatra is thus
told by a truly rural poet :
“ She got a little p’ison snake.
And hid it in her gown;
It gave ita little tail a shako,
And did her job up brown.
“She tumbled down upon her bed,
Where she was wonk to lie,
Removed her chignon from her head,
And followed Antony.”
A clergyman at Cairo, 111., ex
pressed lately his contempt of nickels in his
Sunday collection, and positively forbade any
of his congregation from contributing anything

your cents,” said the good man, “until you
have five before you put your hands to this
box. The widow’s mite business is played out

In Rochester, a few days since, a
prominent lady of the Woman’s Rights per
suasion stopped into a tailor shop, and re
quested the tailor to take her measure for a
suit ot clothes. Tho cutter, who is a very mod

take her measure for a coat and vest, but it
would embarrass his feelings too much to take
the measure for her pants.
An Illinois woman made a fair
agreement with her husband to commit sui
cide if he would, so they both held their heads

the funeral expenses, and married again in two
weeks. How that poor drowned husband
must feel now about the inconsistency of the
fair sex!
The St. Lous Dispatch is shocked

A woman suffrage lecturer in lowa

DIGNITY IN OFFICE.
HATS OFF IN THE APPRAISER’S DEPARTMENT
—A SERVANT OF THE PEOPLE TOO BIG FOR
HIS BOOTS.
There is always noticeable among the higher ser
vants of the people, particularly in New York in the
public offices, a supercilliousness and assumptive
dignity, which is very annoying and exasperating.
But the acme of this thing has been reached by the
perfect
SUBLIMITY OF IMPUDENCE
indulged in by the Assistant Appraiser in the Seventh
Division (drugs) in the Appraiser’s stores. The As
sistant Appraiser is emphatically a martinet in his
dealings with the canaille. He the servant of the
people 1 Not much! Isn’t he Assistant Appraiser of
drugs ? and hasn’t he partitioned off a private office
for himself, where he is lord of all he surveys ? Woe
be to the man who approaches his sacred presence
without removing his hat. The indignation of the
doctor is dire, and his rebuke is swift and sure.
He refuses to transact any business with those of
the citizens of New York who comes necessarily in
contact with him, unless
THE HAT 18 REMOVED,
and a respectful look and attitude assumed.
A tew days ago, a gentleman called upon the As
sistant Appraiser to transact certain public business
connected with the department, and in his hurry he
did not consider it necessary to remove his hat.] The
Assistant Appraiser remarked, after an awful silence,
during which he eyed his man from head to foot:
“I admire your hat very much, but it would look
better if you took it offl” The hat was removed
histanter. But the
ASSISTANT APPRAISER CAUGHT A TARTAR
on one occasion. He asked a gentleman who entered
his sanctum ;
“ Do you belong to the Quaker persuasion V *
*• Why ?” the gentleman asked.
«• Because I see you wear your hat.”
“Yes, sir, and I am going to do so,” was the re
ply. “ Don’t you like it?” At this unheard of in
solence thcjAssistant Appraiser was thunderstuck,
and being entirely thrown off his guard, transacted
his business courteously. Tha assumption and
super-dignity of this Assistant Appraiser has become
so marked that it is the subject of general comment
among those who transact business with the Seventh
Division, and complaints are daily made to the other
Anprisei’s department.

TOM MURPHY’S ENROLLMENT IN THE ElW*
TEENTH ASSEMBLY DISTRICT.
On tha 6th, 7th, and Bth of Juno the Murphy wing
of the Simon Pure Republican Disorganizers, met at
No. 107 East Twenty-seventh street, for the purpose of
making a new enrollment of the Simon Pure Repub
licans, and eleminating from the party all those
Tammany Republicans and Democrats who have so
long “polluted” the party by their presence and
their operations. This now organization is, of
course,
IMMACULATE IN THE WHITENESS OF ITS
ROBES,
and the purity of ita radicalism, Murphy, the Ool<
leetor of the Port, leads the van, assisted by such
pure characters as Honest Chris. Pullman, Spences
Kirby, George W. Lyons, Barney Biglin, of the
Internal Revenue; Capt. Wm. O. McQuade, a worthy
Inspector of Customs in the New York Custom
House; Bill Grogan, also Internal Revenue; General
0. A. Arthur, of whom report speaks much (not
always to his credit), and others. The enrollment
commenced on the 6th instant, and proceeded
quietly until Honest Chris. Pullman discovered that
McQuade, Barney Biglin, and Tom Kelly, the
Whisky Man, were
iRUNNING IN MURPHY’S DEMOCRATS
by twos, threes, and even eights and tens at a time.
Honest Chris, did not like the look of the thing, be
cause he was an aspirant to the Presidency of the
new Simon Pures, and as he saw these Democrats
enrolled, he saw that his chances grew small by de
grees and beautifully less.
MURPHY’S CANDIDATE FOR THE PRESIDENCY
is Mr. Geo, W. Lyon, who will undoubtedly be elect
ed, because Murphy is noted as an organizer, partic
ularly when assisted by Terwilliger and Grogan.
The employees of the Custom House, Internal Reve
nue and Post Office mustered in strong force, and ev
idently meant business. The enrollment, when com
pleted in tho Eighteenth Assembly District will be
composed of as devoted and enthusiastic a “bread
and butter brigade ” as can be found in the city.

To the Editor of the New York Dispatch:
Sir: Tae Murphy Republicans of the Fourth As»
sembly District, (Seventh Ward), arc running for
President of the new association, under the late en
rollment, a foreman boilermaker in tho Navy Yard
by the name of Collins. This man is, and always
has been a Democrat, and was until lately President
of the “ Cuddy Association,” named after the Demo
cratic Aiderman. Opposed to him are Messrs.
Nevins and Brackett, and a large majority of the
persons enrolled; but this fellow Collins, led on by
John J. O’Brien, Murphy’s private secretary, is try
ing to create a diversion in his favor on tho ground
that he is an Irishman, and falsely claiming that his
opponents are enemies of the Irish. A man who
would resort to such mean business, is a fi.t associate
of such fellows as Murphy and O’Brien.
Yours respectful y,
Seventh Ward Republican.

MUSICAL.
The Twelfth Annual Festival of the
North Eastern Saengerbund of America will
commence on Saturday night next, when nearly
one hundred singing societies, from the Eastern,
Middle and Southern States, comprising over three
thousand voices, will be received at the City Hall, by
the Mayor, and will march in torchlight procession
to their headquarters, at the Germania Assembly
Rooms. The musical portion of the festival com
mences on Sunday morning, when a rehearsal of tha
United Singers will take place at the Skating Rink,
Third avenue, followed by a grand reception concert
in the evening, at the Academy of Music. On Mon
day there will be a prize singing matinee at Stein
way Hhll, by the various contending societies, before
the judges and public. On Monday evening the first
Monstre Concert, of three thousand voices and mam
moth orchestra, will bo given at the Rink; and on
Tuesday evening the second. On Wednesday morn
ing there will be a grand parade of all the
invited corporations. Turner associations, military,
&c., and a review by Governor Hoffman and tho
Mayor; and in the afternoon and that of Thursday
jubilee picnics at Jones’ Wood. This festival only
occurs every sixth year in New York, and the
executive committee have made unusually grand
preparations to give eclat to the coming celebration.
DRAMATIC.
Wallack’s Theatre.— The announcement of
the last six nights of “ Rosedale,” caused tho house
to be well filled during the past week; and many
were the expressions of regret that it could not bo
continued for sometime longer. At the urgent re
quest of many patrons, two more representations
will be given, viz.: on to-morrow and Tuesday even
ing; and on Wednesday “The Long Strike,” sup
posed by many to be one of Boucicault’s bes-t plays,
will be revived. Mr. J. H. Stoddart will resume the
character of Money penny, in which he made such a
hit on its first production at tho Olympic. Mr_ J.
C. Williamson will impersonate Johnny Reilly, the
Irish sailor—a part in every way suited to him; Mr.
C. Fisher will appear as Noah Learoyd; Mr. Ringgold
as Jem Starkey; and Mr. Barry as tho kind-hearted
policeman Crankshaw; while Miss Effie Germoa will,
we are sure, make a charming Jane Learoyd. The
remainder of the characters will be p aced iu suita
ble hands, and the various novel featuras of the play
be carefully represented. We understand that “The
Long Strike” will be followed by Boucicault’s latest
production, “Elfio,” and that early in August, the
Lydia Thompson troupe, re constructed, and con
taining many artists now to America, w*il commence
an engagement at this theatre. A “Long Strike”
matinee on Saturday.
Booth’s Theatre.— Mr. Lawrence Barrett’s
delineation of the poor heart-broken Scottish poet,
James Harebell, has been drawing crowds of delighted,
spectators to Booth’s Theatre since the production of
“The Man o’ Airlie.” After witnessing the imper
sonation a second time, we feel more and more con
vinced that it is the best thing Mr. Barrett has yet
done; that of the many fine impersonations.given us
by this really great actor, none have been more natu
ral, more touching, or more thoroughly artistic, than
that given us m his “Man o’ Airlie.” The support
given Mr. Barrett is more than creditable.. Mr-
Sheridan plays Sir Gerald Hope like a careful and
conscientious actor, as he Is; Miss Teresa Selden is.
a most acceptable Kate Steelman; and Mr. A. Glass
ford a faultless Saunders. The members of tho com
pany who require to speak with a Scotch accent,,
have acquired a commendably perfect mastery of it,
and, without exception, do justice to their respective
parts. “ Man o’ Airlie” matinee on Saturday.
Grand Opera House.— More changes have
been effected in the spectacular pantomime “The
Three Hunchbacks ” during the last few nights, and
its withdrawal after Saturday next is now announced.
The new Harlequin, Winter Ravel, has been well re
ceived, and the comely Sisters Daarden have boon
excellent substitutes for Bonfanti and Novissimo,
Moe and Goodrich have continued to nightly skata
into the good graces of their audience, and. La Petite
Benson, Levy, and all the other favorites have night
ly merited and received due appreciation. On Wed
nesday evening Mr. Charles Abbott, the emperor of
English clowns, takes hisjbenefit, when innumerable
attractions will be offered. Last matinee of tha
present season on Saturday. On Saturday evening a
grand complimentary benefit will be given to tha
management of the Grand Opera House, the entire
company having volunteered their services for that
occasion. Being the last night of the season it
