The cars had emptied out their cargo of passsengers, and one greenish, country-looking chap stood apart from the crowd with carpet bag ia hand, evidently at a loe as to what he should do with himself. He had not stood long betore Joe "went for him." "Five feet nine high; two feet eleven across the breast: eighteen inches through," said Joe, looking the new ar rival in the face, not cracking a smile, and drawing from his pocket a tape-line with which he was about to rerify his es timated measurement.

From the New York Times. Nov. 21. We published on Saturday an official report of the' examination of Mr. Geo. Jones before the grand jury, respecting the complicity of Mayor Hall in the Tammany frauds, of which Mr. Jones was understood to say that ha knew more than any other man alive, with the ex ceptions, perhaps, of Boss Tweed and Cantuin Matthew J. U Itourke. Mr. Tones, our readers will not have failed to observe, knew nothing at all; and the Jainful suspicion waa aroused that Mr. ones and his newspaper, the Times, had all along been bitting in the dark, ihe Times assured us yesterday that, during the examination, a reporter in the pay of Mayor Hall was concealed in the grand jury room, either under the table, or up the chimney, or in some other convenient place, taking notes for the Tribune. With great trouble and expense we have secured this enterpris ing person, and are now enabled through his means to present a much fuller and more accurate account of the great Jones-IIall-Oliver inquest thnn can be found in the ollicial transcript ot toe1 evidence. Mr. Jones entered the room with a firm, quick step,- and an air of profound mystery. Folding his arms, and looking at the jury from under his eyebrows, he was beard to matter some thing about "Tammany tools," and to address the District Attorney as a "cai tiff villain:" at which several of the jurymen visibly shook, and Judge Gar vin reached tor a heavy mahogany ruler. Mr. Jones, however, restrained himaell, and, tranquillity being restored, the ex amination went on as follows: Q. Mr. Jones, you are the principal roprietor, I believe, of the New York )aily Times? - A. No, sir; I am an individual. Q. Have you not an interest in the paper? A. lhere ia a ditlerence between mo as a person, and me as a Times proprie tor, and I refuse to give you any infor mation about the interior workings of either of me. Q. Have too read the editorials in the Times of the past two or three months? A. 1 decline to answer mat question on the ground that it might disgrace me. O. You are aware. I suDnose. that your paper has charged Mayor Hall with tbett. Do you know whether that cnarge is true? A. That is a professional secret. Here Mr. Jones winked at the foreman. Q. But. Mr. Jones, we want informa tion upon which to base an indictment. You profess to have evidence. Will you not give it to as? A. Yoa have The Times, and if that ia not good enough evidence for you, rou must all be lammany thieves. Spoken with some excitement. 0. We don't undervalue the Times; but you know that ia not legal proof. A. If you will not believe the Times, you would not believe though one rose from the dead. 0. Well. then, who is the chief editor and proprietor of the Times? A. l am. . . Q. When yon said in your paper that Hall was a thief, did you know that to be the case? A. No. Q. Why did yon Bay it then? A. I said it as a newspaper: and I re fuse to tell aa George Jones what I did when 1 waa not George Jones, but a nowspaper abstraction. 0. Can you help us in any way to fas ten this crime upon Hall? A. 1 can, bat 1 won t. Q. Why? A. Because it would be unprofessional. Q. Do you believe that Hull is a thief? A. I don't know whether he is or not? Q. Do you believe your own articles in the Times to be true? A. That is a professional secret. 0. Do von know any more about these frauds than all the rest of the world? A. No. I don t. I Here Mr. Jones be came extremely violent, and seized an ink-stand with the apparent intention of throwing it at one of the jurymen, Mr. Isaac J. Oliver. A pail of water being poured over him, he grew calmer; but his answers to the subsequent questions were somewhat incoherent. C. When rou aaid that Uall was a swindler did you speak from positive knowledge? A. There is a difference between mo as George Jones and me as the Times. 0. Well. then, did you, speaking as the Times? A. I can t tell you anything about the interior workings of the Times. y. Did you as Ueorge Jones f A. I cannot tell von anything about the interior workings of George Jones. Q. Why? A. It might disgrace me. Q. Can you refer me to anybody who does know anything? ... A. Not in our oihee. Q. I didn't suppose yon could in your office; but out of it? A. You see there is a difference be tween me aa George Jones and me as , Qi Yes, yon need not mind that any more, wnicn are yoa now, at tnis moment? . A. I am the Times now. - Q. Well, did the Times tell the truth when it aaid that it had proofs of Hall's thefts? A. Oh, I can't tell you anything about the Times. I am only George Jones. Q. Did George Jones, then, tell the trutliT A. I can't tell vou northing about him. I am not George Jones; f am the Times. Yon see there is a difference hetween me as George Jones and . filers Mr. Jones, sitting on the edge of a table, and illustrating his argument hr forcible demonstrations with the thnmh of his right hand upon the open palm of his leit, became ao profoundly philosophic that the reporter lost the thread oi nis aiscourse. no uu uu neak-ine? about ten minutes, when aev- rJ inrvmen intarrnoted him. and pro posed to send tor the other editors of the Times. On Mr. Jones remarking that they were all jnst like him, this eng. sreatinn waa hastily abandoned. The witness waa then dismissed. In the lobby he was heard to remark that he bad given " moat damning evidence against Hall," and if the jury failed to find a true bill they "were all Tammany Bepubucaoa. j , . A new book from Miss Mnloch, " Ha nab," is announced ia Londaa.- What a Marmots Wife Ha. 7 SJnya, The Syracuse Courier guarantees the authenticity of the flattering picture of domestic tmss coutainea in toe ioiiow ing letter. It was written by a Mormon lady to a friend residing near Syracuse: Mr Dkah Martha Yon know I have never written to you since I came here to the land of promise and joined the Mormon faith. You know we used to talk about Joe Smith and his twenty wives, and what a terrible wicked thing it was for a man to have so many wives, aud that all such women ought to be put to death; and we wondered how they could ever agree to live together, and all that Now I will toll yoa some -of my experience.. Yoa know I went with a company of sixteen, some from New York State, some from Connecticut, and two from New Hampshire, and wheu we got here a great parade was made over us. We were taken into the tabernacle where ourVpiritual Lord and master made a fine prayer and speech to us, giving his thanks for coming so long a distance to be with them and enjoy the only true religion and happiness. The next day I was married to my husband, who is a farmer, is as fine a man as you ever did see; he is noble and generous; he had then only six wives. I became the seventh; he has married two more since, and we were all glad he did, it is so pleasant when we all get together and tell each other of our former experience before we came here; how we used to think it a mortal sin for a man to have more than one wife, and all such foolish nonseuse. Our dear husband often laughs at us when we tell him of the silly notions we had in our younger days. Our husband is ono of the kindest of men; if any ono of us want money all we have to do is to ask him for it, and the horses and the carriage is always ready to take ns wherever we wish to go. We have thirty seven children altogether: only three are mine, and most of them are old enough to go to school. I tell you it is mighty pleasant to see them all in the playground together, enjoying them selves hugely, and their father in their midst as happy aa any of them. I tell you he ia as nice a man as ever lived. He says he is going to have all the boys learn a good trade or profession (we have only nineteen boys), and we must learn the girls to work, so they will be useful when they become wives. I tell you, Martha, we have no old maids in this country; no illegitimate children; no abortion1; no coroner's inquests over lit tle babes at every half-mile along the line ot the canals, as yoa have in your country. There are no houses of ill fame in our country. In short, my dear Martha, we are a happy and prosperous people, and we enjoy life in a proper aud Christian-like manner. 1 would sign my full name, which I am proud of, but hus band says 1 had better sign my original maiden name, as this letter is going to a land of unbelievers. So adieu. Clara.. P. S. I will write you again before long, but husband says I must not urge you to come here; if you come, you must do so voluntarily. Early Hleliia". The English correspondent of the London Nonconformist, who is now "do ing Virginia, writes to that journal concerning the present habits ot John Bull and Brother Jonathan. He says: ihe southerners beat all the people 1 have ever known in the matter of "early to bed and early to rise." For about the first time in a quarter of a century I have been tent to bed every night at eight o'clock, just the time when some aristocratic Londoners are dining or preparing to dine, lo make up tor the outrageous proceeding of sending a civ ilized Englishman to roost at such an unconsionable early hoar, the signal for turning out was given at five o'clock in the morning, aud breaktast followed soon after six. I am hetero dox about early rising. However, when you are in Virginia you must do as Vir ginians do. I had, nolen rokns, to be come a member ot the early retiring anu rising association. Still I am bound to confess I waa not always " up to time." But how sweet is the consolation af forded to poor humanity by the weak ness of good men. A wealthy gentle man staying at .Wylliesburg when I was there a man who had made his own way in the world, and accumulated a large amount of. money in the process thereof had to be almost pulled out of bed in order to get breakfast. He was both "wealthy and wise," and yet he said he had always been used to going to bed and getting up late. He com forted me immensely, end 1 lull that after all my bad English habits were erhaps not so very bad. thanes amb exDloded the old adatre. " It is the early bird that catches the worm," by showing that the worm was in fault for coming out ao early. While oa this subject 1 may just say that many Americans have a prepos terous way . of lengthening business hours. Lawyers anjl merchants start say, at seven o'clock in the morning and keep en until seven o clock in the even ing. Oui bonot They waste hours in the day in dawdling and gossiping, as callers come in and they coll out. A London man who sticks to his business from ten to four gets through far more work. But then it is so pleasant to keep one's office open from early to late, aud feel good for so doing! Here I may say the poor, despised subjects of an English monarchy would not submit to the long hours of business which the " sovereign people of this great republic" accept as a matter of course. The Early Closing AsBOciation is needed in Ameri ca, for the duration of labor exceeds all reason. I know numbers of store keepers who open at five in the morning and close at eleven at night. This sys tem produces "smart" automatic ma chines, but it undermines true man hood. It accumulates dollars and de stroys the higher life in man. Let the association on Lndgate hill try to teach Brother Jonathan the error of his ways. Man shall not live by dollars alone. 1 Kwalrfpial DeleeUvea. ' From the Louisville Ledger. The detective system of the Cincin nati police force is to receive a thorough overhauling by Mayor Davis, and from what has already transpired it is time that the work waa done. Heretofore the Mavor and Chief of I olice have de tailed certain men from the regular force to act in the capacity of detec tives. Thev receive the aame pay as patrolmen and are dressed ia citiiens' clothea, and are employed exclusively in looking after thieves and other char acters who are supposed to prey npon the community. For some time it has been suspected that this special detective force was acting in concert with thieves and receivers of stolen goods, and that citizens need not expect redress without first covering the palms of the detective with a good round fee; thus requiring sufferers to add to the compensation already provided by the taxes collected from the people. A meeting of citizens, who had at sundry times been robbed, was held on Saturdar night last, at which the eiperieneo of eaverai was given in oonnecUoa wila the municipal detective loree. . At tins meeting it was clearly shown that the experience of the victims ren dered it a neceaaity that they become parties to their own robbery in order to recover their property. It was gene rally admitted by these victimized per sons that the municipal detective is one who shares in some manner with the thief, and thrives in proportion as thiev ing is encouraged. The facts brought to light at this meeting in Cincinnati make it olearly evident that there exists a radical wrong in the present organiza tion of the detective force of that city, and it may be the same in other locali ties.1 Instead of being protected by the detective system, it is more than sus pected that the professional detective fiermits robbery, that he may obtain a iberal reward from those who have been plundered. . - JMAN08. 317 3Mn 317 Main I SOW OFFF.aUSG or STEINWAY Pianos from UK to 1800 er HAULER Pianos frotn.....M(iO to t-'tti - VOBB k SONS' Pianos from.. to S500 tr MASON A HAMLIN Organs..! 76 to M0 ALSO Pianos for Sale on Monthly Payments Together with the largest stock of PMKKT MUSIC and MIMICAL ilKRCUANDISKever brought to the South.
