' Francisco Serano was born near the close" of last century, and acquired his military reputation in the war of inde pendence, Devoted to the interest of the Queen mother, he assisted in the overthrow of Esperatero in 1843. After the restoration he coalesced witU;Nar vacz in the attempts of .he latter to break down Olozaga, and shortly after the marriage of Queen Isabella in 1846, he acquired such influence over the roy al niiud as te occasion differences be tween the king consort and herself, and even to excite scandal outside the pal ace.i The 'Ministry of the Duke of So- tomaror,-which attempted to destroy Seraao's power, was defeated by him, but that of Salamanca, which he sup ported, was forced to yield to the popu lar clamor. After this he turned liberal, and just, previous to the accession of Zsarvaez, he accepted the position of Captain Oeneral of Grenada. - Becom ing implicated in an insurrection at Sar agossa in 1854, he was exiled, but re turned uie sauiu year, ana toot part id the revolution of July as an active ad herent of the U DosttjU -tsaartero Cab inet.

Workiiigwomen labor from seven A. M. until six F. M., with but ft few moments' intermission for dinner Many of the girls take work home with them, and do not cease toil until midnight. In the best shops they can make a dollar a day. Their room reuts are not less than two or three dol lars a week. Iu shop work, girls sel dom earn more than their room rcnt.ex ccpt by overwork. In. slack times their suffering is extreme, girls having 'been known to work weeks with only .water and bread or crackers for food, and for tunate if able to procure an ouiue of tea. In dull times many have lived for weeks on five cents' worth each of stale bread per week while seeking work." The Lodgers' Ilomd-kccpcrs charge working-: women higher rates than men, and many refuse to have them in their houses at any price. Hence they rre often obliged to live.and sleep in localities where they would W ashamed to let any one know they ever weut. In the factories the re quirement of women is much greater than it was twenty-five years ago. .They have to attend six looms now instead of two then, while a. week's work will not procure as much comfort as when- she attended only one loom.

Tliev. are, almost without exception,' delicately made, and in this respect very different from the robust type of the English girl of the period, with her ruddy color, her full form, and her deep, masculine voice, aud still more different from the heavy, angular girl, who combines 6o mysteriously an im mense amount of sentimentality with an unlimited appetite- . The neck and the extremities are uniformly so small "that European establishments have to make collars, gloves and shoes especially for the American market, certain sizes of these three articles being utterly unsaid ble iu Europe. Hence, when the Amer ican girl reaches her natural heaven, Paris, and has been a few weeks in' the hands of French artists, sheris simply perfection. She outshines tho .Parisian ou her own privileged ground. Elder ly men will remember a fair New , York beauty, who visited Paris when thc,Em- peror was still President, and the furore her exquisite' toilets created whenever she appeared at the opera, at the Elys ees, or at the Bois.

Jno large increase of production is an ticipated for the next few years.although it is thought that mining will become steady and recognized American indus try in the future, the same as manufac turing and agiiculturw.

The . nigger dreamed that he was at the polls, and, thrusting forth his hand to vote, as he . thought, knocked the lamp off the table, and thus was started a fire which consumed the entire business portion of the town But the saddest part of the story is that the nigger wasn t consumed himself.

JarWhile the world is almost appall ed bv the late horrible accident in the court room at Richmond, Va., it may be interesting to notice the sensation produced by the terrible calamity in that City oy Uie purnwg .ot 115 incaire iu 1811. By that occurence the children of two members of Congress were burn ed. viz : those of Mr. C. M. Clay and Mr. Yenable. , The House of Represen tatives adjourned as a mark of respect, and the members wore ciape upon their left arms for a period of thirty days. jtiTThe New Haven Register "If the House of Congress shall agree with the Senate that ueorgia is not a State but a military district,' what be comes of its vote for the Fifteenth amendment, cast as a State?" If the American Congress is to be embarrassed in its reconstruction labors by such dis loyal questions us this, it is high time we arc seriously thinking of curtailing the liberty ( f the press or trying the fx- 1 perimcut of an absolute monarchy. JCLcading Democratic politicians of Washington say that, whcie the Radi cals will gain ono negro vote by the Fif teenth Amendment, the Democratic par ty will gain five white Republican votes. Throughout the West the opposition to negro Eufl'rage among the professional and business men is stronger than eyer, and prominent and influential Republi cans have openly declared their inten tion of supporting a white man's ticket A correspondent ; of the Lafayette (Indiana) Journal thus unburdens him self : "If there is a hot place in purga tory, I think Mrs. Calhoun will find her self duly installed as mistress of it 1 only regret that McFarland had not had a chance to administer the same pill to Mrs. Calhoun as ' he did to Rich- ardsou, and with tho same result." lustiness , The Washington correspodent of the Chrtlcalou N&iif saySY Thereis afTcf. fa!r PP ules the iTestfgiition is rendered grdssly rlsrtisan, Hhab joa ' llownrd.l in ( nmmiRAiOner ot 1 he freec- men's ifiieaiuvill be thorouglily shown up as the most complete hypocrite of the age. The "whirligig of time," sooner or later, reaches just such men, and in this case it haslready been proven that he had thrown the cloak of religion over some of the most remarkable rascalities ofjhe day. . The evidence thus far ta-' ken shows that he appropriated nearly a quarter of a million of dollars out of the Frecdman's Bureau fund of the Uni ted States Treasury to pay for the erec tion of thc .negio institution here,known as the Howard University, and that he did this without a scintilla of law, or construction of law, authorizing It. Hen are serving terms in the penitentiary for "appropriating less sums than this out of the public treasury. But lib has not stopped there. He had a pet church here he wanted to foster, and so he took B18,000 more out of the United States Treasury, without authority of law, and bought the bonds of the church. These bonds have no marketable value whatev er, and even ii they did, it would ue, ncverthelcss,a misappropriation of funds to buy them. But Howard has not been the only guilty officer; for the evidence shows the existence of a regular Freed men's Bureau ring, all of whom have suddenly grown rich. From the Revolution.' Women as Railroad Conductors. Being informed that the special train would leave at 6, I , was - ready -at that hour, but the conductor? being drunk, had gone off an hour before, and was anxiously inquiring for me at every stop ping place along the line. At the end of the route a large audience waited my coming, juy son and lyceum managers telegraphing. "Where is the train?" H here is Mrs. Stanton t At the otu cr end, I stood, tired, disgusted, indig nant, replying, "Here I am, but .where is the train ?" At 8 o'clock, as no train returned, I went back to the hotel bag, and baggage, (in a good state of mind to say damn it,) while the audience at Monticcllo dispersed at 9 o'clock, curs ing all womaukind. My son overhear groups here and there say, "Just like a woman ;" "Never can depend on them." Please remember, dear sire, that such are the results of your own management. Women have not one word to say about railroads, stages, . bridges. When we have, oh, what order and harmony will reign ! With 6ober women for engineers and conductors, there will be no smash nps nor running off before they are sent. When the women of Iowa vote, there will be decent - roads . and bridges, and trains in friendly relations with each oth er, and telegraph operators who know that dispatch means send quickly and not lay on the shelf. II ays and Ilia Tally. . The attention of the Democratic press of Ohio is called to the fact that Govern or Hays and hisparty,who secured pow er last fall upon the pretense . of being in favor of honesty and economy in the administration of the State government have openly violated every pledge iaade upon the stump and in convention : and instead of introducing economy, they have gone far beyond any precedent in extravagance; increasing taxation and multiplying offices. The Democrats en deavored to modify some of the exor bitant exactions of the officeholders, by reducing their salaries to an approxima tion to tlie coin'Talu'e ef currency, but this was strenuously resisted by all th loyal, and the Abolitionists being in full possession of every department of the government, defeated ail attempts te 111 troduce economy or to fulfill the pledges mouthed by them throughout the State last fall. The people 6hould see know these fellows when they go about peddling their false pretenses this sum mer. Crisis ' - . t Ylce President Colfax. : The Brooklyn Eagle gets off the fol lowing on Vice President Colfax: "The first man that McFarland be came jealous of was not Albert D. Rich ardson. Richardson was, undoubtedly, an after apprehension to him. The first was one who became an object sf suspi cion to the husband in this wise: Mrs, Sinclair playlully told McFarland one spring evening in 1866 that Abby had rurrto her house and bid a long good-bye at the door to a gentleman, and that Abby had told her that - she wouldn't have Dan know it for the world, because that gentleman was very fond of her. Mrs. Sinclair : told Mr. McFarland to look out told him so in Tilay. He did look out in earnest, and feund that gen tleman to be Speaker Colfax, now Vice President of the United fctates,m wuose Indiana home last year Mra. McFarland remained while she was prosecuting her wildcat divorce." O, Schuyler, Scliuy ler !

The meeting was then ad dressed by some of the leading citizens, stating that it was necessary to strike terror to the rest of the band known to exist at this time, that immediate action be taken in the case. A committee of twenty-four was selected to try the case. The prisoners came before the com mittee and confessed their crime. A more cool and premeditated robbery and murder conld not be planned. At two o'clock p. m , the committe reported both guilty, and they were sentenced to be hung at half past four o'clock p. m. Over three thousand people were con gregated at the hangman's tree.

" ' ' ' Rapidity of Thought In Dreaming; ' A verv remarkable circumstance and an important point of analogy is,' said Dr. Forbes Winslow, to be found in the 'extreme rapidity with which ,the menta operations are formed, - or rather with which the' 'material changes, on which the ideas depend.are excited in the hem ispherical gangaiia. ,; It would appear as it a whole series of acts that would re ally occupy a long lapse of time, pass ideally through the mind in ono instant We have in dreams no perception of the lapse of time a strange property ot mind ; for if such be also its property when entered into the eternal disembod ied state, time will appear to us eternity. The relations of space as well as of time are also annihilated; so that while al most an eternity is compressed into a moment, infinite space is traversed more swiftly than by real thought. There are illustrations of this principle on record. A gentleman dreamed that he had en listed as a soldier, joined his regiment deserted, was apprehended, carried back, .tried, condemned to bc.hot, and at last led out for execution. After the usual preparations a un was fired; he then awoke with the report, and found that a noise in the adjoining room had, at the same moment produced the dream and awakened him. ; ' . , . . , A friend of Dr. Abercrombie drea'm edtliat; he had crossed the Atlantic and spent a fortnight in America.
