STATU QUO. Everything regarding the fever re mains in statu quo. -No new cases have been reported and the general impres. eion is that the fever will not spread, but be confined to the family where it is at present located.

"l'TliR is the dynamn-e.lectric mee! chine," said Professor J. II. Rogers to, the Post yestedl:1y, as it Ieall to explain the, nintlner in whiich the iap itol is anon to le illutlinated with the electric ligh!. The replorter was glad to know it. It looked something like the half of a lour barrel. But how did it work ? ''I u ill show you," sai'! the pro fessor, and so, both metaphorietlly and liteirally, lie relieved the dense ignorancei of the quill diivel h1% tluri. ilng on the enitrelnt and ignitiiug the ca bon points. 'The altlil:itus wis downll in the rooltl where are pHi'ed the boilers that supply the enlgines underneath the house, and the bril liant glare of the light contrasted strongly with the usual gloom of the subterranean chanmber. The ma chine is of the kind made by Arnoiux & Ilochhausen, of New York, and, as explained by the professor, consists of many helices connected together by soft iron bars worked around a imag netic center so as to have a cylindri cal shape. The revolution of these helices produces a continued streanm of electricity, which is conducted by means of copper wires to the lamp situated about sixty feet distant, through the low dark corridor. This dynamo-electric machine is set in motion by beitng connected with one of the engines anid is capable of mak ing 700 revolutions to the minute, and of producing a light equal in brilliancy to from sixteen to twenty thousand sperm candles. The lanimp was next visited, and the leporter saw a procelain globe resting on small bars of copper, fastened to a metal ting that encircled the globe. There were four narrow cylinders which contained the carlton pencils, and they projected from beyond the edge of the tiug and converged till they met equidistant from the center of the globe. This obviates one of the objectionable features of other elec tric lamps, which is that the carbon points do not always remain equidis tant from each other, andconsequent. ly there appears a stalagmite on the negative pole, which obstructs the brilliancy of the light. There is also another irregularity that is prevented by using four carbon points. When only two points are used the positive pole becomes concave, causing the light to burn as in a crater; but by using the four points the carbon in each cylinder is let down equally and simultaneously by a small weight running over several pulleys, con necting with the carbon. It is con sunted on all sides in the same quan tity, thereby doing away with all ir regularity The Focault burner, tlle one heretofore used, was regulated by clock;-'ork, which could not be de pended upon, and hence the light flickered and became paiutful to the eyes. But Mr. Rogers' light is soft, brilliant, agreeable sanll steady, mak ing no glare, and burning perfectly. The price of one of Focaults lamps is $140, while Mr. Bogers' invention costs only $15. The expense of lightin up the hoease alone, where there are ,10). gas jett, is $@ per hour, while the electric lamp can produce a melb better light for fifty cents an hour. Mr. Clark, thIe archbi.. Stect of the capitol, intends to place four of these lamls above the glass ceiling of the house, and has white washed the real ceiling labove tie baill, so as both to refleot and retract the light. The engine which will run the dynamo-electric machine is in process of construction, and the hlons of representatives will soon be light' ed up with an electric blaze that will necessitate exceeding caution by eve ry muember of congress during the night sessions. , NotQW .. .., We defy tbe Democrat of Alesan dria.or any otleer repudiation journal in Louisana to. point out a particle of evidence to prove that the Constitu tional Convention was called to scale or repediate the debt. It was called to reduce taxation and it has done that, while It preserved the credit of the State, to the amount of a mallion dollar per year ! Armstreog Arresmted. We clip the following from tihe 'Shreveport Times: In reference to the late affair at Pleasant Hill, Larry Armatrong, after hAdviig killed Wytt FEoster made his eas;ape, thoubaglh wounded.

Am Old Woman on Tilte.. (Lockport Union.) When Tiheodore Tilton lectured here recently an old lady with great efort dragged herself up to a gallery seat, bat after sitting afew monments and listeaning to an exposiation "HIeart's Ease," wended her way slowly back to the box office and demanded hler money on the ground of fraud.
