Banklnr Influence lu Confess.
The Chemical National Bank of New
York.has a capital of ,300,00). ;On this
it pays six per .ceit.dividends at the end
of every two months, making 36 per
cent per annum. Besides this dividend
it has accumulated a surplus of $2,000;-
000. ! ' -. i -. " :-f
. Such banks can well afford :to keep a
lowcrful lobby and an Immense corrup
tion fund at Washington to defeat meas
ures for increasing tlie currency. It is
not certain that' any 'other, baiik yields
sucli enormous profits, but it is ccilain
that they are abundantly able to defeat
any . measure before Congress which
threatens their dividends.
Wherever the iuterests of Uie people
and those of the banks eomo iucoirflicr,
it is Very obvious which must go down.
This will W letter whenever the people
send to Congress no more-bankers, and
no more men that bankers' can buy.
The McFarlaud Trial.
This celebrated trial has. taken a
rather peculiar turn for a prosecution for
murder. .. ' . ' i. i- 5
In the first place' an' attorney for the
prosecution is employed ty certain out
siders who belonged to -Richardson's
circle, and who' are more or lp'ss iropli
cated in Uie seduction ..which led to' the
homicide. This attorney most of the
time leads in the case, and -conducts the
trial with a view to exculpating those
implicated parties rather than to a. legiti
mate prosecution of the prisoner., .-
The worst feature of the affair is that
these parties among whom arc said to be
Mrs. CAi.Houx, Mr Greelkt, Mr. Sin
clair, Mr. Beichrr and others appear
to believe that thc-conviction of McFar
land is necessary to their completo via
dication. ' ;" '''' ' ' :-

the connection of these outside parties

Farland's conviction or acquittal is a
subordinate affair, important only as it
bears upon the reputations 'of Mrs. Cal

' ' The Ex-Rcgcnt of Spain.
' 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. Iii the "rupture 'Srhieli soon follow
ed between these chiefs, he'' sided with
the former, and having been nominated
Uaptain-ueneral ot JNew Lastile a po
sition which held virtual control of Mad
rid he joined O'Donnell in the coup
d'etat of 1856. . The following year he
wa3 sent Embassador to Fans ; in 18o9
he was appoiuted Director and Colonel
General of artillery, and in J uue, 1865,
Captain General: of Madrid. Scrano's
instrumentality in the" expulsion of Isa
bella and the Bourbon dynasty is famil

Condition of the Laborer iu Mas
sachusetts.
Tutf "Bureau of Statistics of Labor in
i cityl Massachusetts has lately made art elabo
!city rate report tx the Legislature. It ifivc
a dark iiietrire of the condition of the
industrial classes, and indicates that the

joins abroad
for it We are informed j
that the present law in
relation to
ployment of. children' in maiiui'actuiing
and niecbanicid establishments . in the
State is a dead' letter. 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. Few of them
arc exempt from diseases, caused by
scarcity of clothing, insufficient, innu-
tritious food, aud long, continued labor.

Cross street, between Nps. 100 and 102
Hanover street. ' A three-foot passage
way led into' the yard, '32 by 12 feet,
wherein lived fourteen families. There
was one privy, too horrible to-be descri
bed, fsr the whole tenantry. Some small
places, partitioned off in the yard, and
intended for fuel, were covered with hu
man excrement. The buildings were
three stories high, wretched tumble
dawns, and not fit for cattle. iThe Spec
imen room we visited was 14 by 14 feet,
and 7 feet post, occupied by four . per
sons, one in bed and sick. The floor
was perforated by rat-holes, and patch
ed up by inpourings of anthracite ashes.
This room vielded a rentage Of 81 To

dark, winding and rickety stairway, we
came to a room occupied by a Mrs. R.
She stood at a tub, washing. In the

and a stove. Every ihing denoted the
owest fat age of poverty 1 The officer at-
tcnding.us said that he once found here
family starving. Mrs. R. appeared
cleanly and industrious, but thoroughly
disheartened. In less than a week f rem
our visit she was stabbed and killed in a
quarrel with a -neighbor about : the loan
of five cents." ...
There are many pages devoted to ill
ustrations of the condition of the labor
ing people in the old Bay b'tatc. They
arc read with minKled horror and dis
gust. It is pretty evident that if wc are
to have a Bureau to look after the work
ing classes, to see that they arc comfort

From Putnam's Mngazino
Beauty of American Women.
Nature has endowed the American la-
dv with a profusion of rich gifts far be
yond her less favored sisters abroad. If
really great beauties ,are .comparatively
rnre arid pvnii on this noint the diver
sity of tasSe'may lead to a difference of
opinion te majority ; or women arc
merely fair. 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. Younger men need
not be reminded ef the recent riva'rj
between one of their beautiful country
women and the brilliant Mettcrnich, and
the desperate hut futile effort . made" by
the great arbiter of fashion to wrest the
crown of victory from her hands. Com
biuinff crcat natural advantage, in beau
ty aud grace with admirable taste 'and
an almost instinctive perception oftthe
becoming,Amcrican women abroad very
easily outstrip ail competitors ill thwart

13P"California papers
us some
curious facts m regard to the
gold ;pro
duction. In eight 3'ears it has fallen oft"
from $33,000,000 to $23,000,000, and
has now become a legitimate .business
yielding no more average remuneration
than any other, if as much. The busi
ncss has fallen into the control of asso
dated capital, aud the miners themselves
receive wages averaging about $4 a day.
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. Just at present
there is a difficulty between the mininjr
companies and the laborers. The for
mer assert that they are unable to make
flividencs with wages as at present.
while the men are strenuously resisting
any reduction. The consequence
that very many of the mines are not be
in worked, aud those that are do not
offer the proprietors any inducement for

The Document Translated into

Rome, April 11. The following high
ly important document has been adopt
ed by many of the Bishops in attendan
ce H the Ecu.nenical Council, and pre
sented to the Pope on the subject of in
fallibility. The paper is headed by the
name.of the most reverend Archbishop
Puree!!, of Cincinnati a fact which
gives its promulgation, if possible, ad
ditional importances
"Mc st Holy Father Humbly pros
trate at the feet of your Holiness, we
most earnestly supplicate that the ques
tion on the definition of the infallibility
.of" the Sovereign Pontiff as a dogma of
faith may not be proposed to the Vati
can Council. ' '
"Among other reasons of this suppli
cation wc beg to adduce only three, which
appear to be sufficient :
"First Because the discussion ofthis
question will evidently show a want of
union, and especially among the Bish
ops. "Second Because on account of the
circumstances in which wc are placed in
countries where heresies not only exist
with impunity, but are dominant, this
definition, instead of attracting, would
alienate those whom we seek bv all
Christian meaus to lead to the true-fold
of Christ
Third Because wc anticipate end
ess questions win arise wincn may m1
tcrferc with and prevent the work of our
miillstrv, and cause the fruits of this
council to be lost to those who are mem
bers of the holv Catholic Church. Hav
ing laid bare our hearts and sincere in
teutions, wc implore Almighty Gcd to
avert all evil from the Church, and that
he may illumine and direct you

resentatives from Missouri, is holding

of a Supervisor of Rcgistration.by which

.jyA nigger got drunk in Medina,
Ohio, on the night of April 14, went to
sleep resting his woollv pate upon a ta
ble. There was a kerosene lamp burn
ing ou the table. 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

and the members wore ciape upon their

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

and business men is stronger than eyer,
and prominent and influential Republi

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.

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

When the women of Iowa vote, there
will be decent - roads . and bridges, and
trains in friendly relations with each oth

that dispatch means send quickly and
not lay on the shelf.

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

"The first man that McFarland be
came jealous of was not Albert D. Rich

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.

look out told him so in Tilay. He did
look out in earnest, and feund that gen

both guilty, and they were sentenced to

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.
