One department is devoted to the re mailing of misdirected letters to their writers, if possible. Nineteen-twen tieths of them are so returned. The remaining twentieth — amounting to about three hundred thousand a year - are destroyed. The **openers'* make no examination of letters, except to see at a glance whether they contain any thing of value. This is all done by six ty lady clerks, who dispose of from two to three hundred letters each per day. In tlie great majority of eases the date 1 ami signature of the letter give ail ; necessary information, and the letter. ! with its original envelope, is soon ready , tor its return trip. There are many in | Avhich the post-ollice is not given in the i heading. In business, as well as social ! letters, the writer often used perhaps a ! name hy which the neighborhood is commonly called, or some romantic name which lit* chooses to apply to his i farm or residence, in such cases the | lack is frequently supplied hy the post- ; mark on the envelope. Intlio,;.-, ulsi^f cases when the letters are between rela tives and friend-. the signatures an of the familiar and a ll'eetionate sort, such as - Dick,"•• Mallie." •• Mother," 4i Sister. ' or •• Ducky." all proper enough in their way. but quite too indefinite to he of any service to the examiner. Such let ters are generally of no real value, and are of necessity consigned to the (lames. When the heading ami signature an* sullieient tin- letter is iA>t read, hut the class mentioned are examined, as the body of the letter sometimes supplies the missing ink. If found to heonl r a letter of friendship, and containing nothing nt imoortanee. it is quickly east aside. If it relates to business affairs, or contains information of importai!« social and domestic affairs, such as deaths, marriages, etc., all reasonabi" effort is made to discover cither tit writer or the person addressed. Fre quent!*. letters of inquiry are written hy tin- clerks, and information thu;. gained may he the means of the letter reaching its destination, lint in east tin* letter furnishes the writer's 11 am ■ and address, no distinction is made as to whether a letter is important or not, allait- returned, it is considered that if a person writes to his friend and get * no answer, i; will he a satisfaction to him to know that ids friend did not receive it. Indeed, the administration of the Dost Milice . partment in every branch is governed by tin- idea, to its fullest extent, that it is wholly for the benelit and convenience ot the people at large. Full Dress in New Guinea. The beaux and belles of New Guinea are hy no means forbidding. Imagine a niau about live feet nine inches in height, his body a nice brown color, covered, if in* he a masher, with red earth, and varnished with oil, his face painted in different colors and a piece of polished stone through his nose, his long hair frir/.y. omannmvd with bird- of-panulist- plumes and cockatoo feath- ers. iiis teeth black or red. his ears weighed down with huge ear orna- ments, liis waist compressed to wasp- ish proportions with a broad bolt of lurk, shell armlet. upon his arms and ilogs'teeth necklaces around his neck, a breast ornament of hoars' tusks or pearl shell, a gayly printed waist rib- bon. with long streamers bi front and nohind, ankh is and kneenù* of colored :lax. and a small, netted hag over his shoulder: imagine all this, and you have ,1 typical New Guinean. The women are like the men for rigginess. The young girls wear a great abundance of ornaments, but after marriage fewer. They areall profusely tuttooed.and wear a colored petticoat which reaches to the knee. ----- ««•-., --- Slit* I Ik* Hüllt*. The sight of the old Church Hildes reminds us of the days of yore, wlien persons sust t-cted of witchcraft were often weighed against them, writes William Am ows. F. 11. II. s., in Home < lûmes. W* iind. in turning over the pages of tin Annual Kt gister. under tlie year 17.7.'. the following allusion to the practice: •• One Susanna Ilannoke*. an elderly woman of V ingrove, near Aylesbury, was accused -\ a neighbor for bewitch ing her spinning-wheel, so that she could not nia.\o it go round.and offered to make oath <>f it betöre a magis trate; on which the husband, in order to justify iiis wife, insisted upon her being tried by the Church Hilde, and that the accuser should be present. Accordingly die was conducted to the parish church, where she was stript of all her clothes to her shift and under coat and weighed against the Hilde, when, to the no small mortification of her accuser, she overweighed it and was honorably and speedily acquitted of tiie charge." The liehet in witchcraft lingered a longtime in hat country: and even as late as 17»VS that great and good man. the Rev. John Wesley, wrote in his journal: "Tli? giving up witchcraft is in effect gi' ing up the Bible." The laws against witches were repealed j j ; j * > J ! j ! I I 1 ! j 1 ; !
