DISTMCT SAFE BURGLARY. wrr uuttzji airsy ix ciiajige of TUEJVUY. TAITING FOR THE VERDICT-SCENES IN AND ABOUT THE COURT-nOUKE-fiPEC,U-T.ATIONS OX THE JURY'S ACTION-NO MiP.EEMENT AT THREE O'CLOCK THIS JUKKLMi. Tie safe burglary trial was resumed aadcon laded yesterday. Mr. Kiddle opened by making a correction of an error Into which ho saia the dercneo fell yes terday. Tho defence had said that the Solicitor's fflee had sent Dant away. Now, Dant was not Mat away, for he was In the employ, or under the eiuitroi, of the solicitor's office. He then took up a number of telegrams, with a view to show that they eoa8raed.the statements of Hayes. On tho Itth 01 May Whitley was telegraphed by Solic itor Banfield to find JlUte Hayes. Now, Whitley knew well enough that "dike Hayes was In Can ada, hat ho telegraphed back, "I will do my best to find him," and also for a subpoena. This was leers trick to gain time. And on the same day his subordinate (Nettlehlp) telegraphed to Mike Hayes In Toronto. They were not willing the eommitteo should get Hayes until he sent Jtftttleshlr to End out whether Hayes would sake an affidavit exempting the secret ser vice and charging the whole conspiracy upon loorgo farter. Xcttleshlp went, but was deceived and sent back the telegram, aid get Hayes to tell the truth, and if he wonld alt cone to Washington then to get his attidavlt. ut Netileshlp s teleirara was wrong; securities were not good. The plan failed, and they did not eend Hayes to Washington. Now to account for Whitley's knowledge that Hayes was in Canada. Applegate. the stupidest man by two full idiots that had ever been upon the stand, was brought fcrw-r-i. knave could bo depended upon; but a foci forcait down on your hands la the very worst plaoe He commiserated the defence with this supreme, superlative fool on their hand. He , A , saw Whitley fish out r a waste basket in J alj '.he lramcnt- uf a drip le tcr by wh'cn he would bare the jury believe in the April Do fee Whitley was inlornied ol the whereabout ellaies. He was willing to swear to anything thai was de-ired. but he was a inoRth and a halt too late in his data. He asked bow did Whitley Sndojt'hat Hayc was in Canada if the telc icram did not give him tho information This lelegTarc was tho key wkuoh had been agreed on lo giro tho information that Hayes had agreed to mane tho affidavit. Ncwcombe did not swear be fore the eomm ttee that he had shown Hayes: tho while' fth.s confidential letter, but a part ol It. Mr Pavidge. Is that In; did yon prove it? Mr. Kiddle. Ye", it is in. Ilr. Dav.dire asserted that It Lad not been ahown. ilr I! ddle asserted that he bad put in so muii 1 the testimony of Xeweoaitie as to show this. Mr Davldge. Will your honor settle IiT Mr Hiddle. It Is already settled. The Cocrt. Well, go on- with the argument. Mr. Kiddle reuuiod, and, referring to the tele gram in which Hat.cs saia he has mado a full affidar t to Lawyer ".. said that Whitley knew who Lawyer " was. Whitley did not telegraph tc the .nalrnun of tho committee until Ore days ai'er he had the lnfarmatlon, and in the mean time jb had ent two ol his agents to Canada, whe ktc unsuccessful Mr. Riddle argued that Hayes was in Canad i In pursuance ol an arrange co' with the 'ecrc: ten ice. He referred to the tan4iCK ordor of the service 'to arrest Michael Hayes, ' and yet there is proof that the agents of thalserciee saw him, took messsces from him asddcl'tered them, and mado no efijrt to arrest hlrs Hayes then went to Nettleehip's house a hcuso of mourning and rcccired 0 from him. He(N had said that he paid this money to send a thief t" W ashirgton. Mr. Kiddle argued that is et lehip pa1 1 the money to Hayes t leave the ee-untry but he disappointed them by coming to T'asi rtjn, oommuulcatlng with Downs, and Being Tjiuntarily before the committee. He did sot daro to sneak -enaratelv as to A. B. Wil- Uame, after what had been said en Saturday Ikere was but little doubt 11 Harrington was In It.

The tzry then retired to their room. WAIT1NO TOR TIIK VERDICT. F-otn the time that Judge Humphreys closed his charge to the jury up to tho boar of twelve o'clock anxious crowds were pacing up and down the ftdawalk "walling for tho verdict.' The newspaper fraternity wero well represented, -pedallythalooalirres-. Among the crowd as eabledla froatortlre; City Hall were several members of the bar, x-ofDcers of the lata Dis trict goveromet,and a goodly number of those -he tT opposed la every shape and fona the late Beard of jjcb.le Vorkt. This assembfage T-etng - heteffceaeoas one and diverse in opinion, -pero- Utioas as to the Tcrllst er the jury were freely Indulged In. Various oplnltas were expressed as to the guilt cr innocent? of tho aeccied, but tho general Im pression seemed to bo that the jury would bring In a verdict of acquittal, while a great many con tended that the jury would not agree, A few, whofo prejudices led them to the conclusion, be lieved that a verdict or guilty would bo returned. 'The majority of those present were loud In their expressions cf sympathy for Sir. Harrington as 1 his frieeds. tnd many hope's were entertained that they might coiro out all right. RUJJPKS. Among the rumors Cylng around la tho neigh borhood of the eenrt-house was one that tho Jury stood ten for acquittal and two for conviction, and another that It stood seven to five In favor of ac quittal, but no reliance can be placed ontheso ru mors, an there was no means of communicating with the Jury room. The enly maaner In which Information could bo obtained was when a mem ber of thojury spoko In a loud tone, and even then tho sentences of the speaker could not be connected very well. In connection with the lis. tenlng for utterances from the jury room, a fanny Incident occurred, which tended for a whllo to re lieve the monotony of the dearth of sows from above. Some of the parties waiting Imagined that by placing tho ear to one of the pillars supporting the east portico of City Hall that It would act as a means cf commusI-aUos. with the jury-room above, but on trial it was found that the expe dient would not work. It 'was then proposed to mount one of the party in waiting, who was pos sessed of '-a quick car," on the shoulders of a few others, and find out if he. In his elevated po'Itlon, could hear anything of Interest to the anxious watchers below, but this process cf obtaining In formation failed as slrnally as the first. wno wrr.E rnrsrxT. Among the anxious watchers during the even ing were Ms;rr. Harrington and William-, two of the alleged conspirators: Mr. Wm. Evans, or the District Attorney office; Mr. John Boras and Mr. Columbus Alexander. All seemed de sirous to hear what conclusion the jury camo to, b at their curiosity wa- not satisfied up to the time the reporter oi The National Kcrcnu- , v le.'t tho neighborhood of tho City Hall. The probabil t.es aro that tho jury will not agree, In which case a now trial will, take place. Times a. v. At this hour a renewed interest was felt in tho rendition of the verdict. Several of tho personal frl'nds of Mr. Harrington tad assembled at tho City Hall and beneath the lights of the jury room. They, to say tho least, felt tho imprcsslve ness and gravity of the occasion, and really wanted to know what the jury had to say. They wcro not alone by any means. AH over the city gcEtloaen were congregated, hoping to combine in a general congratulation to Mr. Har rington, whom they knew more anxious than all tho rest, was waiting la tho Diitsict attorney's oaloe for sorao sign of relief from the terrible anxiety oppressing Lire. He seemed les agitated than h.s friends. He. a well as many others, knew that at this hour tho voto Jf the , ury was 10 to a, in his favor, and he had the assurances or his staunch friends thct In any event all would bo well. Still, over this sceno near by the cosgs, and not tho vtting of tho jury, were heard. Hinging out over tho cold morning air was tho sound of their voices in such hymns as "Jesc- sought mo when a ftrangcr" and "Tho year of jubilee bis come." Perhaps it was all right; wo cannot qucstiot that here: 1 ut what was most wanted was a ver dict of sorao sort. The brave young man, In wfc deb breast a dishonorable thought or a wrong Intention never found lodgement, wanted a defl nito voice one way or the other, and if against him, he was rrcrarcl, and if undecided, he was equally prepared to demand all his rights for a new trial. It was at this hour the determination of Dick Harrington, and he was calm, cool and collected, to throw to the winds a hung jury, and to agaiu ge befvrc nl j countrj men tor his rights. THE COLUMBUS UNIVERSITY. a mv iacts roi: EARNEST consid- EKATION. Mr. Corcoian'f generous gift of M9,ooo to Co lumbian c llcge, Washington, B.

Great efforts aro cak ing to raise the f"0,000 required by January 1, IKS.-Czcltcnse. J The above Includes the truth In a nuliell: yet all public spirited cltiicns of Washington, and especially those Interested In the enlargement of is educational facilities, will read expanded and more sreciso Intorraation with pleasure, Yikf 5ir. Corcoran presented the eiM,0M for the curposo of permanently endowing Columbitn t'nlvcrslty. ho said, in his Ie'ter accompanying the gift- "But If tho said sum of 4100,000 bo not raised on or before January Tc, 1875, the donation will fall, and tho property will bo otherwise dls pocd of." Tho property referred to Is known as the "Trinidad track," and Instead of being worth -a,000, it is really valued at JM,ooo, maklnz the gift all the more princely. Other friends of tho university have made tono fide subscriptions towards the $1W,0J of $70,000, leaving t9J,cXI more lobe raised. Now this fact is plain; estimating Mr. Coreoran's gift at Its real value of t-J.'O.OtO, aud adding to It the $70,000 sub scribed, we sec isi'0,0. placed In absolute peril ol being lost lost lo the cause of education In Washington; lost to the prosperity or the national capital; Iot to the advancement of civilization and progress for tile want of $30,000 more. Re garded la this light, and in tho blaic or Mr. Cor eoran's princely munificence, It Is a "paltry sum, and ought to bo subscribed before sundown on this TliacksgUing Day within the limits of this District.

FIVE BOYS COMMIT A SERIES OF ROB BERIES. For some tlno past there has taken placs In this city a series of small robberies, consisting of tlll-t-pp!ng, cleaning hall-racks and stealing articles of small vilno from different business homes. First It was a cigar storo that was en tered, then that of a dwelling-house would coen follow. This sort of business became so frequent as to cause complaints of this nature tq multiply at police headquarters, and developed theja-t that the perpetrators were working with consid erable success, and becoming bolder la their operations, evidently thinking that they would so well cover their tracks as to avoid suspicion, much less arrest. The affair finally culminated Into actlvo work by tho detective ccrps on tho robbery or the (run.hopof Mr. Henry Gaseb, a few days ago. whon the eases were cleaned of pistols or various patterns, ganlocks, nippers and several other valuable articles. Detectives Me Elfresh ana Sargent Immediately took hold of tho matter, and were not long In ferreting out the parties who .did the work. Mneh to their surprise, It was discovered to be five boys, rang ing between the ages of ten and fourteen years, who had banded together and were doing heavy business la the burglar Rne. It was found that they showed considerable smartness and cunning In plying their nefarious calling, and were rapidly progressing la a path that would ultimately land them In the peniten tiary. If not on the scaffold. TheoBcers succeed ed In securing four of the boys, bat as all ef them are respectably connected, and tnelr conduct was unknown to tbelr parents, who feel deeply humil iated aad mortified at the discovery that has been made, their names are withheld from pub lication. Tho cider of the party was the mas ter mind, and gavo directions with a Judgment and astuteness that would have done erodit to an old and professional hand. Ills manner of surveying the places to be entered, how they wero conducted, the werk to be donoand the dis posal of the stolen goods, showed a planning brain that would bring honor to Its possessor If used for a respectable and legitimate pur- nn.H SIMM .Iffinitwh .. .- !. t --.A t- jrvBVa h..., uvuBu hUiSttfU IV USA SKOUUU', lb cave evidence that tho young thter with a few years of knowledge gained In that pursuit would become a dangerous man to any community. The other lads appeared pliable as putty in his hands, could be pressed Into service at a mo ment's notice, and would carry out his lnstrue tions to the minutest particular. In this manner mey maoe a weu-organizea Dana 01 young piun- derers, working with a system, becoming bolder as success attended their attempts, and finally left off light pilfering, and picked out more val uable helds of oncratioc. The leader acknowledged that they had robbed. In different ways, about a dozen places. Their cigars had been of a fine quality, and smoking delicious. Their funds abundant, for many or the tills visited wero well filled, and as all were taken their exchequer was seldom at low ebb. They commanded many friends among tho youth or their age, gaining their friendship by tho dis play of money and spending generally. On them wero found several keys, which had been romoved from different doors, and used to fit locks whoro they wished to enter. Some of their schemes have been exceedingly bold, and many an experienced robber would have hesitated to undertake carry ing them out, but It was owing to this boldness that suece's was achicred. Nearly all of the property stolen has been se cured, and the money taken will. In all probabil ity, be mado good by the boys' parents. It Is thought that they will be sent to the Reform school for better instructions, and be deprived of the evil associates they have had around them. BO W SHALL WERE GO VERSED f SYNOPSIS 01 THE JOINT COMMITTEE'S BILL A STRONG CENTRALIZED GOV ERNMENT PROPOSED. Tho following dlsratch appeared In the New York Times yesterday: The joint committee of Congress to frame laws for the government or tho District or Colum bia expect to be prepared to report shortly after the opening of the session. The general outlines of a scheme of government wero practically de cided upon early In the summer, though the fr mal action of the commltteo by which Its work will be completed has not yet been taken. The nature of the committee's report has been suc cessfully guarded from the public, so that the statements which havo been published In regard to It are not only Inaccurate, but absolutely un founded, particularly the paragraph which has been aolnz the rounds of the nresstn the enee t h.t the administration ef District affairs was to ba distributed to tho Departments of the General Government, assigning to the Treasury, for m tance, the collection and disbursement of tho revenues; to tho engineer corps, the control of public werks, fcc, which has gained eurrcacy as truth, and has been discussed In that view. It Is whollT erroneous. The meet promlnont feature In the new government proposed bytheommlt teorfillbo the appointment of a commission or board by the President, which will constitute tho cverufive and administrative authority of the Distil.. This board will appoint all the subordinate of ficers and commissions. It will havo very com jprcbenslve powers, and, correspondingly, great responsibilities. Tho method of administering the government will be based on the most ap iJtuivj ail's SUVCC--31UI utmyus Waters JirtYv Pyu 1 su wjn;i iivu iu cim umcr large cities 01 tue coun try, and the utmost efficiency and economy will bo sought. Thero will be, ror instance, following the plan of other municipal organisations, a p lice commission, a school commission, a commis sion in puollc VcrVS and a board of health. It will bo observed that a roTorntncnt established on such a basis as this will be exceedingly strong and centralized, and will, therefore, bo widely different from anv government which the District has ever Bad. Local self-government, through unlimited -utfrago and representation, has been thoroughly tried, and Its railuro Is still fresh In mind. Tho plan of the committee, which would seem to leave very little to the people of tho Dis trict, goes cry far in tho opposite direction.

The usher did not notice him, but seated sovoral well dressed persons who presented themselves, when finally the man addressed tho usher, saylog, "Can you tell mo whoso church this 17" "Yes, this Is Christ's church." " Is ho In?" was tho next question, after which a seat was not so hard to find. Mocking birds can Imitate human actions as well as human voices. It seems. On F street two pets of this stripe got jealous or each other, and undertook to fight It out to desperato fashion.

This Is the day of "stuffing," not exactly that kind which tho boys froquently threaten to "knock out" of each other, but or stuffing ducks, turkeys and geese, preparatory to roasting, aad then of stuffing our stomachs with them after wards. It is the day to send somo of your good things to thoso of your neighbors and friends whom yon know aro not likely to bo bountifully provided with tbo substantlals and dainties. It is tho day to go to your house of worship, and there. In company with your Christian brethren, dovoutly thank God for all tho mercies of tho past year; that yon live and havo means of sub sistence, and tho health to earn more; that you have not been tempted beyond your strength to indulge your appetites and passions to a fatal extent: that you have not been turned out of of fice without means of support and ability to get a living outside of Government "pap;" that you are neither a conspirator nor a safe burglar nor a Columbus Aloxander nor anewspaper reporter. You should be especially fervent in your grati tude for the last-mentlonod favor. This day is a good one, as you will havo seen by this time, although It was Invented by the Puritans, near Plymouth Rock, over two hun dred years ago. It Is a tunny fact though, tn this connection, that it was first invented as a day of fasting, humiliation and prayer for deliverance from a horrible death by famine, or a miserable exlstonco upon fish diet, when a ship camo to their rclier before they began their fixed day or prayers, and the Governor changed tho order or proclamation Into a day of "thanksgiving." And that is how It came about. Wo almost for got to add that It Is also considered a good day generally for pics minco and pumpkin preferred.

Ho went to tho Park hotel, whero he was well known, and seemed to bo In such agony that the clerk was alarmed. Mr. Bellow would say nothing about tho causo of his trouble. At length ho threw two Eapcrs upon tbe desk and hurried out of the ouse. The papers were telegrams from his two sons In New Haven, telling him ttut his wife had dropped dead fa the streets or Buffalo, and that he -nasi como homo at once. When he arrived in New Haven be found too corpse awaiting him, and his poignant grief dethroned his reason. At his wife s grave he said to his friends that bo should not live 1cd2. A few days after the burtal be returned to the Park hotol. The pro prietor and the day and nlgbt clerks tried In vain to cheer him. He took no nourishment, and sat dav and sight In bis chamber, his race burled In his hands. On Friday Mr. BcIIcw's llttlo son, fourteen years old, came from New Haven to ask his father to return with him. Leaving tbe boy at tho hotol, Mr. Bellcw started Saturday altcrnoon for hfs employers In Broad street to get money to pay his fare to Now Haven. Ho wandered to 41 Broad street and fell Insensible to the fioor. As ho was thought to be Intoxicated a policeman took him to the New street police station, where he lived less than five mlnutos. After an au topsy tn tho Morguo yostcrday a coroner's deputy said that pneumonia was tho cause ordcath. At tbo tlmoorthowar Mr. Bellow was a mer chant In Washington city.

Professor Humlston, of Worthlngton, Minne sota, described to tbe Triouae correspondent tho grasshopper's mode of depositing her eggs In the soli, a subject which he has had excellent oppor tunity for stodytng this year. Tbe tall of the fe male locust consists of a hard, bony, cone-shaped substance, capable of being thrust into tho ground from one-half of an Inch to an Inch in depth. Just abovo this, on the body of" the In sect, and attached to It, Is the egg-cell. Tho grasshopper Is able to push Its conical tall down Into the ground and leave It there, with tho cell contains- tho eggs. The warm sun in the spring causes the eggs to batch, and the field Is coycrod with millions of young frrasshoppers,notas 1 largo as a kernel of wheat, just whon the tender shoots of grain begin to show themselves abovo the ground. The damage they do ts Immense, for they remain a long time In ono spot, and work upon the young shoots. Perhaps the best mode of treatment is "back-setting,'' or plowtna- the field, and thus turning the surface soil, with It store or eggs, several Inches nndor. This pro vents hatching, and, though not a complete remedy, Is very useful. Galaxyor Vecemoer. There are nearly three hundred coal mines In Ohio, wboso annual production Is ever 5,000,000 tons, though it will fall short of that amount this yea?, every mine snfferlng from the paale. Only two thirds of the mines are working at present, and they do not average three. aaysa week. There are aboat 22,000 men and boys em ployed tn the mines, and 4,100 above ground. SINGERS AND SALARIES. A GLIMPSE AT OPERATIC ARTISTS WHILE GOING. THROUGH A RE. HEARSAL. A writer In tha Home Journal, who recently attended a rehearsal of tbo Strakosh Italian Opera Company In New York, thus gossips about what, be saw: "Alhlnl was going through ber part of GIMa In "Rlgolctto." Tho big house was shrouded In gloom, and only two or three Jets of gas were burnlnf- before tho orchestra to JIgbt tho musicians. Every few moments Muzio would break out In a torrent of choice Tuscan aimed at tbo bead of some of tbe unfortunates be neath bisoafo-i. Here and there sat some of tbe artists of the company the majority on business, others on pleasure. Carpi, tbe ex cellent but not appreciated tenor, was on tbe stage with tbe Diva, go'nz over and over tho extremely dlfBcult duct of tbo second act. She was Introducing a lot of jlorlfure which Verdi bad not dreamed of and which It was no easy thing for tbecA-r'cl'orcAcjfr to seize. Cary, looking pretty aud happy, sat in the balcony chatting animatedly with Cooney; the charm ing Donadlo was with her mother a pleasant old dame, not at all like the traditional stage mother. Bebrens, the business manager, was running In and out, full of business; Ferdinand Strakosch, a brother of Max, was sitting with and launching heavy wit at the pretty HeU bron, who did not attempt to conceal her admiration for, or to rccngnlzo her supe rior Id, Albanl, who, by the way, was singing with her full voice a thing not often done at rehearsals. But she is young and knows noth ing of the necessity of saving her power yet. Gye, the son of the London opera manager, who came over with Albanl, was sitting alone In a comer. Albanl appears to the commis sioner as a charming and pretty little woman. While her features are not precisely regular, (she has the large mouth of great prime donpe,') she has a most expressive and fasci nating expression of countenance, which wins sympathy at once. She Is entirely free from conceit, and bears all her success with simple, girlish pleasure. She is in one respect the op posite of Nilsson, who, in her private life and business matters, was lull of whims and ca prices. Albanl has nothing of all this, docs her business in a straightforward manner, and succeeds in making herself popular with every body In the company; so that, strange to say, her associates aro not jealous of her. She lives at the Clarendon, in a somewhat plain suite of apartments, with her father, who has accompanied her In all her peregrinations through the world. She is not engaged di rectly by Mr. Strakosch. Mr. Gve. the London manager, has an engagement of several years with Albani, and for that period her voice is entirely dis property, lie farms her out to Strakosch at 150 gold per nlght,er $750. Albani receives of this C0 gold per night, or 300, so that she really pockets less than half tbe sum she earns. It is for the purpose of looking after this business that Mr. Gye, the yoanger,is in New York, and there is no truth whatever In the reports which have been circulated, that she is engaged to bo mar lied to this gentleman. She herself says that she has no idea of marry inganybody at present, and there Is no reason to doubt her word. Strakosch Is obliged, according to contract, to let Albani sing eight times a month, but this may 1 o extended to twelve, if ho so pleases, at tbe eame terms of 150 In gold for each time. Thus far she has only sung twice a week, be cause the manager must utilize his company on off nights. Albanl Is at present engaged Iu studying the roto of Juliet, in Gounod's "Romeo et Julietta," and Elsa, In Wagner's "Lohengrin," and v. hat with rehearsals almost daily, and the programmes, her time is pretty well occupied. The best portion of her tri umph here has been her social welcome. After her singing on the II rat night the upper ten in the boxes went down and waited patiently at the door of the dressing-room of the great singer until sho was ready to receive their greeting. It was a pleasure to see this triumph. Albanl's engagement lasts until April. Max lias made no arrangements for next season with her as yet. He says he'll bo lucky to get through this year. The most prominent member of the Stra kosch company, apart from tho star, Is the tenor, Carlo Carpi, who is possessed of a splendid voice, trood physique and magnetic presence. Carpi's salary is 10,000 francs, goM, per month, and he must sing as often as the manager requires him, to the extent of four times a week. Carpi is unmarried, a pure Italian, and, until this engagement, never sang out of Italy. There he Is a great favorite and a "star' nimseu. Tor several years we have not had a belter prima donna dramatic than Madame Poten tial. In tho line of business which includes the heavier operas of the repertoire the ladles shine with great brilliancy; her Queen, in "Ruy Bias," and her Aida have obtained great applause. Iter salary Is Sl.'JOO In gold per month for twelve performances. She Is married and has her husband with her. Sho is twenty-nine years old. Mile, lleilbrou, who was first introduced to us in "Traviata,"andwhohas madoanvHt pleasant Impression by a light, ringing voice and brilliant vocalise, began her career as an opera boulTe singer, and placed in the Varieties in Paris very often. Maurice Strakosch had her educated to a better standard, and pro duced iu opera at Paris. She succeeded in winning the applause of the most cousplcuo.ts public In the Old World, and wben Maurice failed to get the "Italicns' far a second year, he sent hb prvt'ge here. Tbe success of lleil brou here has been nultc satisfactory. She Is very pretty, stylish, aged twenty-two, dresses very beautifully and in taste, and U a Jewess. Her father and mother are with her; she has lived much in Paris, but 110 breach of scandal has dimmed her reputation, lleilbrou receives 81,500 per month to sing ten times. Mile. Donadlo, the next prima donna, is a French girl, very pretty, charming and -craceful. she is only nineteen, and lives alone with her mother. Maurice brought her out tn Paris last year, and she is under contract to him tome years for i"G00 per month. MaresI, the last of this numerous list of prime donne, re ceives the same as she did the year previous. 3tiss Cary, whom Max Strakosch calls "tho greatest of American contraltos," with some reason, for she cannot, In spite of want of method, tc easily surpassed, has now been with the manager for five seasons, and she in creases each year In popularity and voice. To be sure she has increased also In bulk, and we are afraid, in a short time, will have lost her youthful proportions. Cary is now paid $1 ,200 Ier month, she lives In good style at the Ev erett house, in Union square. Marriage Is a thing which does not seem to havo entered her head. At all events the stnry or the engage ment of Max Strakosch and her was all moon shine, and without foundation. Benfratclli and. DcbasslrJ are two young ten ors, both Jews. They belonged to the Maurice Strakosch company in Paris. Benfratclli has a fine voice, but an indifferent stage presence. Dcbassini has a peculiar organ, which is everything and nothing. He volcallzcs in a wonderful manner, almost like a woman, and has a couplo of notes which sound something like a tenor's. But I wouldn't swear that they are tenor notes. Benfratclli is paid 81,200 per month; Dcbassini, 8S00; Fiori, the bass, U paid SCOO; Scolara, $100. .1 MEMORY OF BULL RUN. General Joseph E. Johnston, In his narra tive of military operationsdiiriDg the rebellion, gives tLe foHowirur as the chicr reason why he did not "push things" after the first Bull Run victory: "Ills soldiers wcro disorganized by victory more than those cf tbe United States by de feat. The Southern volunteers believed that the objects of the war had been accomplished, and that they had achieved all that their country required of them. Many, therefore, In Ignorance of their military obligations, left tho army not to return. Some hastened homo to exhibit the trophies picked up on the Held. Others left their regiments without ceremony to attend to wounded friends, frequently accom panying them to hospitals In different towns." General Johnston recognizes tho skill of tbe Vnlon commander, General McDowell, In using his superior numbers to turn tho Confederato flank which lay towards the Shenandoah, and from which he rightly Judged their reinforce ments to be coming. Tho Confederato left was beaten back, and, being nnsupported, would undoubtedly have been driven In but forStone wall Jackson's personal exertions; for this was tbe occasion on which that general first displaced his wondrous gift for leading men In action. A CLr.KK in oncof the stores or Detroitlatcly played a practical Joke on a large number of pedestrians by suspending from the third-tory window of the building an effigy of a man, which looked from the street as if It wcro clinging to tho sill with desperato holl. The multitude of persons who rushed breathless Into the store and informed the proprietor of the impending casualty became at last un bearable, and tho Jokerwas compelled to con clude his entertainment summarily for fear of the police. The St. Louis Rtprbtkvii is convinced that there Is no girl like tbe St. Louis girl. To havo 'a lovah in Xoo Yawk," It asserts, Is the af fectlon of the Chicago female. To rccclvo "visits from a Baltimoh gentleman" delights the heart of the LoulsTille belle, while the Cincinnati maiden receives attention from whatever source it comes. Tho St. Louis girl, however, confides In the young man who lives in the next square, and contents herself with him and the St. Louis Rpublkan. Corruption InTruiiia also! Genaral Mol tie's accounts.were recently found to be wrong. lie had drawn during the war one wig and one paper of smoking tobacco for which he had never ac counted to the proper authorities. Demand for remuneration has been made. The plaster model of McDonald's colossal statue of the late Fltz Oreene Halleek, of Gull ford, !s now tn tho hands of the raolderi for re production In bronze.

FALL HOUSE CLEANING LADIES AND Y1NEGAR-WASUING- HOUSEHOLD HINTS USEFUL RECEIPTS. l-AIX HOUSE C1.EANIK. The New York Time gives the following hints as to how to make fall house cleaning easy. It says: We must have all the carpets taken up at once, and the whole house In an uproar, but only devote two days In a week to the operation, or, If more desirable, only one. For instance, take Thursday as the cleaning day, and commence with the attic. Sweep It thoroughly, first brushing down all its walls, and destroying all of the spiders' and wasps' nests that can be found. Wash the windows with weak tea, having saved all the leaves used during the week, and then boiled them for half an hour. This liquid will cleanse glass and varnished paint far better than soap-suds, as It gives them a very bright appearance. If rats and mice lurk In the attic scatter copperas all about the corners of It, and put dishes of It filled up with water about the room. Copperas is the very best disinfectant known for bath-rooms and all places that require to bo kept pure, and It will also keep away all kinds of vermin. If cellars arc infested with rats and mice a liberal coat of lime-wash, made yellow with copperas or sulphate of Iron, will excel the disagreeable intruders, besides making the air of the cellar very pure. If tbe attic Is cleaned om day the next day can be given to two or more cham bers, and If the nails are withdrawn from tho carpets the night previous it expedites the work tbe next morning. Before the windows are washed the walls should be brushed down with a feather duster or with a piece of white cotton cloth pinned tightly tosether over the broom, and then it is used to carefully sweep down every part of the wall. Let the dust subside a little, then scatter tom-up slips of wet paper or tea leaves over the floor and sweep it up, and mop it with a dampened mop. De not let the floor be made quite wet, as It takes pine boards some time to dry. Wash the mirrors, varnished furniture, paint and windows with tho weak tea, applied as warm as possible. Use a flan nel cloth for furniture and paint, and news papers for mirrors and windows, rubbing them dry with dry papers. Paper gives a bright ness to glass that cloth can never bestow. With a flannel wrung out in tho tea wipe off the gas-fixtures, chandeliers and fancy brack ets, etc., then rub them dry with chamois skin. Take the coarsest of whito thread and draw itlhrough the opening in the gas-burners, to remove any particles of dust that have lodged therein while they wero not used. If you have two pairs of hands at work, ono can wash windows while the other cleans paint, etc. A small stick wrapped in a cloth Is of assistance in cleaning the corners of windows. The spirits of ammonia Is also a good cleans ing medium, and a tablespoonfal fo a two quart pail or weak tea or warm suds is a good proportion to use. It will take spots out of marble slabs and mantels, and from carrots and furniture coverings. If you do not take up your carpet, you will need to have a piece or oilcloth or drugget to lay down before the w indows and doors as you wash them, to keep the drops from it. When the room is as clean as bands can make it, bring In a two-quart pail of warm water in which you have dissolved two tablespoonfuls of pondered alum; wring out a piece of flannel In it and wipe over each breadth of carpet, rubbing down the way the nap runs. Wring out the cloth every few moments, as It takes up much soil, and when the water becomes dingy prepare some more. The alum will brighten the colors of green, red, yellow and brown, but be sure to wring the cloth so dry it will not wet, but only dampen, the carpet. When It is clean you will be surprised to sec how much It is brightened. Leave the windows all open until it is perfectly dry. 1. HUES AND VIXECA1I. Taken in moderation, there is no donlit tha ilncgar Is beneficial, but in excess it impairs the digestive organs. Experiments on artificial digestion show that If tho quantity of acid ba .diminished, digestion is retarded; if incr Seed Deyonaa certain point, digestion is ami ted. There is reason, therefore, in the vulgar t otto unhappily oo often relied on that nez r helps to keep down any alarming adijosf.', and that ladies who dread the disappca aro - of their graceful outlines in curves of pi mpij3 expanding into "fat" may arrest so dr adf il a result by "liberal potations of vinegar, but they can only so arrest it at the far more dreadful expense of tbeir health. The amount of acid which will keep them thin will destroy their digestive powers. Portal gives a case which should be a warning: A few years ago a young lady in easy circumstances enjoyed good health; she was very plump, had a good appetite, and a complexion blooming with roses and Hlbs. tbe begauto look upon her plumpness with suspicion: for her mother was very fat, aud c-be was afraid of becoming like her. Accordingly she consulted a woman who ad vised her to drink a glass of vinegar daily. The young lady followed the advice, anl her plumpness diminished. She was delighted with the success of the experiment, and con tinuid for more than a month. She began to have a cough; but it was dry at its commence ment, and was considered as a elfzbtcold, which would go off. Meanwhile, from dry It became moist, a slow fever came on, aud a difficulty of breathiDg; her body became lean and wasted away; night-swelling of the feet and of the legs succeeded, and a diarrhica ter minated her life. Therefore, youngl ladies, be boldly fat! Never pine for graceful slim ncss and romantic pallor; but if nature means you to be ruddy and round, accept it with a laughing grace, which will captivate more hearts than all the paleness of a circulating library. wA-niso Muslin drc-ses, cten of the most delicate colors, can be cleaned tn ten minutes or a quarter of an hour without losing their color. Melt half a pound of soap in a gallonof water; emptj it Into a washing-tub; place near two other largctnbs of clean water, and stir Into thcin one quart of bran. Put the nutslin in the soap; turn it ocr and kneud it a few min utes; squeeze it out well, but do not wring it, let it get torn; rinse It about quickly in the bran for a couplo of minutes. Rinse again well for a couple of minute, in clean water. Squeeze out dry and hamr itbetwecntwo lines. A clear, dry day should bo chosv 11 to ti ash muslin dresses. Half a dozen maj be done this way In half an hour. The List rinse may bo prepared In the same wajasthc rin-e for woolen fabrics. A colored pattern ou a white ground must be blued. The bran may here be dispensed with. When tho dress Is dry make the starch; for a colored maslia white starch, ami unboiled, but made with boiling water, Is best for muslin dresses. Stir tho starch with the end of a wax candle ; dip the dress ; hang It again to dry. Wben dry rinse It quickly and thoroughly in clear water; hang it to dry again: sprinkle and roll it up; afterward Iron it with very hot Irons. Hot itons keep the starch stiff. ThU rinsing after starching is called clear-starching; none of the stiffness, but much of the unsightllncss of the starch Is removed in Uiis way. The advantage of thus cleansing dresses Instead of washing them Is, first, if colored, the process Is so rapid that there is not time for tho colors to run , secordly, tbe fabric Is not rubbed, anl therefore not strained and wont out; thirdly, the process saves nearly all labor, aud is so quickly done that aay lady may manjLgc it for herse-ir In the absence of a laundry maid or a lady's maid. "Iamcoue for my umbrella," said the lender or it on a rainy day to a friend. "Can't help that." said the borrower, "don't you see that I am going out with It?" "Well, yes," replied the lender, astonished at such outrageous Impudence: "yes. but but what am I to dot" "Do:" said tho other, as he opened the umbrella and walked off, "do as I did borrow one." ATorso lady at homo front boarding-school for tho holidays was asked If sho would havo roast beer, when she replied, "Vo, I thank you; gastronomlcal satiety admonishes me that 1 have arrived at tbe ultimate stage of deglutition con sistent with illetetlo Integrity." The young lady was never asked If sho would have anything ever again. m ' The lifting pewerol plants Is well Illustrated hyan oak treela&oitn HdIey.Mas.
