The young folks who dwell on the classic banks of the Hudson are about to renew the exciting pleasure of sailing in ice boats, or ° . Tn Eriit „ n f mdar waves yachts on bkates. p - 1 I aQ( j ai j the power of the Frost King, those w who take delight in sailing on that river in spring summer and autumn, are not to lose their 'sailing parties. Formerly, and not many years ago, ice sailing was limited to planks with skate-irons attached, w r ith a single sail of rude construction, capable of running only before the wind. Now elaborate 3. a One of these and costly craft are employed is described as follows: She is sloop-rigged, and built of clean white pine, the side pieces being cased wit a black walnut, ornamented with gilt beading; the center keelson is strengthened with a black walnut truss; the deck is of narrow, closely jointed strips of red cedar and while the ironwork throughout is all hand somely nickel plated. Ia every particular ^j this is as fine a specimen of a Hudson laver ico yacht as can be built. The dimensions of this ice yacht, which has been nameff Whiff, are as follows: length j of boat proper, 10 feet 6 inches; length over all (end of boom to top of bowsprit), 41 feet; width of runner plank, 16 feet; canvas to be carried, 316 square feet She is named the " Whifl," and is intended for exhibition at the Centennial. Another " cat rigged " ice boat called the Flyaway is thus described : Tue Fiyaway, like .he Whiff, i, bhill.l.o «hi,e L V deck« of .her««, »trip. , of of black walnut and pine, and she is furnished ; constructed, are as follows: Length, 19 feet; 0 f pUnfe, 15 feet 6 inches; boom, 24feet; to q a inches- hoist 17 teef snread of g alî > 9 leet 0 inches, noist, It ieei, spreau in queerest of all the queer ice yachts ever yet gall, 9 feet 6 inches; hoist, 17 leet; spread oi j canvas, 312 square teet. ...

Bulletin: Dear »Sir— I have observed that since a series ot years the greater part ot the large floats doing the hauling in this city have no license attached, and consequently it must be supposed that the owners ot such vehicles do not pay any license. Anyb-dy that goes on the levee, or any street near the levee, such Peters, TchoupitoulftS, etc., and looks at the pasniuo vehicles for about twenty minutes, w jß observe: i. That out of twenty large floats, doing the hauling on good paved streets, there is 2 . That ne.rly all ihe drays owned by pdor me D, who do most of the hauling iu the back part of the city, where the uupaved and bad streets exist, have the license mark duly at tached.

Ho thinks Senator Mortons proposed investigation will be fruitless for . reason s mes6 reai>ons - in in it " I was iu Mississippi during the latter part of the campaign and until after the election.

Senator Morton is astonished at the rapid growth of the Democratic vote. He suspects ballot-bcx stuffing. At no election heretofore have the Democrats polled their fall vote. This is notorious. They have labored under a degree of discouragement equal to that cf ihe Democrats of Vermont. The registration tells the story. The registration of whites in every county during tue last campaign was from 10 to 40 per cent above previous regis trations. On election day they all turned out. At no election in the history of the State has there been such a white vote cast. Y'ou can ride froan one end of the State to the other without finding a white man who did not vote. If there is no other object in view than to prevent bloodshed, for that r-.ason alone it would be best for the Senate to let Mi-siosippi alot e. An attempt to set aside the late election will result in bad blood, „ violence, riots, shot-gun arguments, and the poor blacks, who really are interested very little in any thing but good cotton crops, will be the chief sufferers." j, as teen progressing at 100 Canal 8 t re et, is now in its last week.

There was held yesterday in Antoine's pri vate office a joint caucus cf the Republican members of the House and Senate. U. B. Senator West attended the caucus, and mode a speech. He spoke of Pinchback's fight, and related what Pinchback had done to get in, and told how the case stood now. In dwelling on this last he turned, as it were, the oold shoulder to Pinchback, and inti mated that Pinchback's chances were small. Oa being questioned as to what, in his opinion, would be the result it Pinchback wa» rejected or resigned and the Senate refused lo go into joint session with the House, he is reported to have said to a Democratic Senator that the Democrats had a majority on joint ballot, and the Senate must meet the House in joint session. ne referred to the case of Trumbull, of Illinois. Iu Illinois there was a Republican House and a Democratic Senate. The House elected Trumbull, but the Senate retused to meet ly joint session. Trutribull presented his credentials, and, while Jjie case was pending. Congress passed a law 'making it obligatory upon the State Legislatures to go into joint session at speci fied times, and elect a Senator. The Democratic Senate of Illinois met with the Republican House, and the Republicans having • majority on joint ballot, Trumbull was eleoted. This law was still in force. As regards the United States District Judge ship he said Billings was the coming man, and after eulogizing Billings he prevailed on the caucus to indorse him. After transaciing soma unimportant busi ness the caucus adjourned. ? IGHVVAY ROBBERY. An Old Woman and Her Daughter Attacked and Robbed of $303. of a I of of Thursday morning, about 5 o'clook, Mrs. Peret and daughter, residing near Carrollton, were on their way to the Ninth Street Market 1, in their milk wagon, and, when opposite the old Sedgwick Hospital, Greenville, the horse was stopped by three negto highwaymen. Two of the men immediately jumped on the cart whiie the third one held the horse, and took hold of Mrs. Peret and jerked her out.of j at the cart into the road, and took from her : , o pockets 350. 6. Mrs. Peret, during the scuffle, succeeded in taking a double barreled-pistol from one of t j the garroters, but before she had time to use it they made their escape. This is altogether one of the boldest and most daring cases of highway robbery on record, and it is hoped : that the police will exert themselves in find- f ing out and bringing the perpetrators to jus tice. __ Something More About the Suicide in Algiers. We are reliably informed that the young man, A. H. Stenhauser, who, it is alleged, committed suicide by taking morphine at his residence in Algiers, was not engaged to be married to the young lady to whom he ad dressed a note and package before taking the fatal dose. The acquaintance was merely a friendly one. The package contained a lot of letters, which he asked the young lady to re turn to New York and Chicago, and the letter addressed to the lady was a request that she should see that the document were safely re turned, and not a letter in relation to a disap pointment in marriage, as was stated.

A FIENDISH NEGRESS. She Poisons a Family of Thirteen. Arsenic Placed in the Drinking Water. From a gentleman wbo arrived in this city Wednesday night from the parish of East Baton Rouge we obtained the following details of a most heinous crime, which, however, did not result as the perpetrator intended it should' The crime was the poisoning of thirteen per sons. On Christmas Day Mr. A- B. Booth, resid ing at Hope Villa, on Bayou Manchac, in the parish of East Baton Ronge, about twenty miles from the city of Baton Rouge, gave a dinner party, at which was present the family of O. A. Bullion, Esq., the book keeper of Mr. Booth, and the Barnett family, number ing, including Mr. Booth's family, thirteen persons. The party, while at dinner, partook of some drinking water from a cask near the house, and shortly alter drinking, were all of them Piken sick. The symp-oms attending the sickness indicated poison from arsen'C, and the usual remedies were administered by a physician, who was immediately summoned, and at last accounts all the persons were de clared out of danger, except ( ne of the Miss Burnetts, whose life was dispairedof. As soon as it became definitely ascertained that the party had been poisoned, suspicion attached to a negro girl known as Araminta, who was in the employ of Mr. Bullion. About a week before Christmas day, Mr. Booth had caught Araminta beating one of his children and he whipped her. She left vowing vengance. On Sunday evening a body of masked men went to the cabiu of Araminta, and she confessed to having induced a colored woman and her son to put arsenic in the cask ot drinking water. She was taken before a justice of the peaoe, where her confession was taken iu writing and properly attested. The woman and boy were arrested, and, together with Vraminta. were on Tuesday taken to Baton Rouge and turned over to the authorities._ authorities._ AMUbEM&M.\ , The Varieties Theater — The beautiful I play of "Damon and Pythias " was perlormed last evening at this tluater, with Mr. John McCullough in the role of Damon. The play hUa very strong one, and appeals directly to the nobler sentiments of the heart, with a language fervent and tender. The character of Damon afforded Mr. MoCullough ample scope for the display of h s great talent, and his rendition was marked by a rare exhibition of power ; antt feeling, rendering it one of the most effective characterizations in his reper toire.

MERRY CHIMES FOR THE NEW YEAR. New Orleans, Dec. 30, 1875. Editor New Orleans Bulletin: Having noticed in the dispatches to the papers of ihe last few days, that preparations were being made in several of ths Northern cities to ring bells and fire gans on the death of the old year and birth of the new, I ad dress yon to know if the proper authorities in our city can not do the same ? The firing of guns can be dispensed with, as it would put the city to some expense, and she can't very well afford luxuries at the pres ent time, but we could have the bells rung; and as the fast dying year has witnessed a part restoration to the people of their rights, it is but fair that they should be rung merri ly, merrily to-night at 12 o'clock.

Ia view of tbe labor and hazard incurred by the Treasurer cf the United States, aad other independent treasury officers, by the receipt and collection of drafts and checks received by them from the natioual banks, public officers, and other parties having pay ments to make into the Treasury, the Secre tary has advised these officers that he thinks it better they should receive in all official transactions only the lawful and proper moneys of the United States as provided by law and regulations thereunder. This will prevent national banks from pay ing their setni-annnal duties; banks and oihtr parties from paying for tractionai currency, and collectors of internal revenue making de posits in the office« mentioned by means of drafts and cheeks, thus doing away with a practice which seems to have crept into gov ernment transactions without Any speoial au thority oi law or regulations, and which has become a burden to the officers who volunta rily undertook to collect for parties theohocks and drafts transmitted lor the purpose of making tbe payments mentioned.
