MSMAlil'K'.S LATEST JCHEME.
[Dispatch to New V-rk Graphic.] WasaiNftTON, Dec. 30.—The report-* in one ®| the New York papers tffat our government j v»a »kwi the asKiniauce of toreign nations to ocoifiOHe the d.lSculliea in the I-iland of Cuba ita without any warrant The only grain of wheat in the bushel ot chaff is the fact that fb»documents reliving to Cuban affairs, in si tiding the I'resi<lenl's message, have been sent to foreign governments, as is usual in *as*s of international disputes. But there is no lalenti' r: >a the part ot the administration 5o abandon the Monroe doctrine or to tolerate nay European intervention in American affairs. There is, however, a very startling rumor a Suât which may involve tue very gravest con sequences, and which explains, better than any difficulty with Spain, the activity in naval »Stirs and the declared impossibility of cut ting down the army und navy estimates. Ihe Teel difficulty seems to be here. Bismarck is anxious te ootain colonies uud create a great ütnuao marine. Ho has had his eye upon 2 'orto lii<mid negotiations have been in progress between the Gentian and Spanish Govern tut nt r, ^ith a view to the intervention i»f ihe luriuer in Cuban affairs, the price to 3 « Ihe cession to Germany tif the Island of ftjrto Kico. This is the real cause of the mysterious Hurry which has recently taken pbtoe in our army aLd navy affairs, and I have resist n to believe that our diplomatists have been at work tor some time past to meet Huh very formidable s;a e of affairs. Strictly spoaki.-.g, the surrender of Porto ILeo would not be a contravention ol the Slonroo doctrine as it was understood when ■enn&eiated ; but it would ho the cause of a greut ileal ut (imoarrassment to our govern ment ii so s' r.mg a military and naval power is Germany should gain a foothold in the Weal Indii a so very near to our coast. The rtiuua^v- inff. veil upon our commerce through tirei»'. Britain ho.ding possessions in proxim ity to our co.i-l during the late war will be xtuurtingly remembered, and, iu case oi an other iiminnal trouble occurring, to hive Ger many within sight ot our shores would be a serions di.sadvant.ige. Wi»h Spain alonu no trouble is to be appre hended Indeed everything is in process of adjustment with that government in a satis hetory manner. The real complication is in this intrigue of Bismarck's to obtaiu posses sion of ,< uav tl station and form a German ookrnj in tiic West Indies. Wh» Kit us This Machine ! Gran*, through the Washington Chronicle, ins given Secretary Bristow to understand, that his position in the Cabinet depends on ttie will of the President. This notice can be intended as nothing loss than an intimation— -and the country will so understand it—that Mr. Bristow must be careful how ho moves, as his official head is liable to be chopped off at any moment. Such au intimation would be eminently proper if the Secretary could be .inspected Oi neglecting his duty or transcend ,*f; his powers, of conniving at fraud or fail ing to punish crime. It is not alleged that he has sinned on the side of corruption, and his it nit, if there be any, lies in the other direc ikon. The warning of the Washington Chronicle makes plain the fact, which has tor some time Aeon sp|>areut, that the President eutertains no friendly feeling tow'ard the Secretary of Alie Treasury, aud c uld more readily be per •joftded to put obstacles in his way than to re move those which already exist. This ill-will is excited by Bristow's course in pressing the vhkky prosecutions, in breaking up one of Ahe greatest organizations for public plunder Mail have arisen under Radical rale. Up to a certain point the President claims Ad have permitted the prosecutions, if h# did not actually encourage them, and for this he ifeeb he deserves praise. Being Grant, he aertuinly should receive credit tor hiving so tar curbed his natural propensities as to allow Jbe prosecution of his tnends who have been proven^ to be political offenders. Another man would uot expect praise fer having re fmiced from obstructing the course of justice. —SSL Louis Times. Coloring Leaf Tobacco. A method for altering colorless tobacco to a isalor that will make it sdable, is claimed to have recently been discovered by a St. Louis .kdncconist. If, as is claimed by the dis coverer, colorless or spoiled leaf tobacco c m lb* thus changed to its natural brown shade, and to all appearances make nndiatinguiah »bk from Havana, important results may be looked lor. As a means of profit the method tankas excessively costly, is of no meagre ao want. At the present time colorless tobacco can Ü*> zeidily purchased from eight to twelve cents per pound, while the sound and per feti colors command sixty to eighty cents. There have been a number of examinations of Johncco after coming from the process, all the ctports of which favor the entire success of the invention, as regards turning out a good jarodnot from au article that would otherwise have been worthless. The process of trans tanning the tobacco requires about six hours, »»d Uie method is kept a secret, at least until »patent is obtained for the discovery. liottled Light. Countless accidents, as every one knows, arise liom the use of matches. To obtaiu light without employing them, and so with cut the danger of setting things on lire, an kogenions contrivance is now used by the watchmen of l'aris in all magazines where «xplcsive or inflammable materials are kept. Any one may easily make a trial of it. Take an oblong phial of the whitest and clearest glass and put into it a piece of phosphorus about the size of a pea. 1 'our some olive oil, heated to the boiling point, upon the phosphorus, till the vial about >ue-third, and then cork it tightly. To use Him novel light remove the ccrk, allow the air îo enter the vial and then recork it. The *mpty space in the vial will become lumin ous, aud the light will be equal to that ot a kunp.

[From the Cassell's Magazine.] Among women of exalted rank who have been wanting in beau ! y are Margaret, of Sweden ; Matilda, Empress of Germany ; and Christiana, of Sweden. Fulvia, wife of An thony, had few person >1 charms ; nor had Terentia, wife of Cicero, if one may trust to the majority of historians ; but most of these have found some admirers among biographtrs. Neither Anne, ot Cleves, nor Catherine, of Aragon, were good looking, still for a while they swayed tue tickle heart of their blue beard husband. Queen Anne was a dowdy, gracelees woman in her best days. Cromwell's wife was plain. When Queen Anne, of Bohemia, came to England as a bride, there was a pageant at Cheapsidcofa castle with two towers, from both sides of which ran fountains of wiue, and we are told that the bomtiful girls who blew gold leaf in the faces of tbe king and queen caused the plain bride to look plainer; yet she ma e her way in the good graces of the king aud people. Iu France the gay and pleasure-loving women have gained many laurels. Madame de Staël is a memorable in stance, though no one was mofa conscious of her personal defects. Even her name was a power iu itself. The great Napoleon conde scended to'be so jealous of her influence that no persuasion would induce him to allow her to return to France. Aille. De Lespinaisse, one of the most fas cina'.ing women of her day, who exercised a marvelous influence on those around her, was marked with small-pox. Mme. Geofl'rin was a plain woman. Aline. d'Epinuy was neither beautiful nor clever, but most attrac tive. Mme. Da Mailly was the plainest woman of the court. Alaria Lezcinski, daughter of Stanislaus, King of Poland, wife of Louis XV, was good but uninteresting; and that fanions Palatine princess, second wife of Philip, Duke of Atijou, brother of Louis XIV, and mother of the Duke of Orleans, the Regent during Louis XV's minority—a woman who exercised more sway than any other of her time—was coarse of feature, aud so un gainly that her large hands passed into a proverb. She was of masculine habits, cling ing to the customs of Germany, and wore short, close wig. like a man's. - Money Order Business with England. Washington, Dec. 28.—The Post-Office De partment has received a cable dispatch trom the British Postmaster General, saying "Money orders advised on lists from the United States largely exceed the usual amount. Please remit £30,U00 on account" The unusually large balance iS accounted for ua the result of money orders sent for holiday presents. Twelvo thousand pounds sterling had been remitted before the receipt of the telegram, and the balance will be liquidated iu the ordinary course of business. Affairs in Mississippi.— Oae of the first things to be done in Congress will probably be a call upon the Attorney General or Presi dent ior a copy of ihe report ot the agents sent down by the Department of Justice to examine into the condition of affairs in Mis sissippi. This report is still kept in the De partment of Justice, and is treated as private. There can be no doubt that if it had sus tained the allegations of Gov. Morton's recent indictment against the people of Mississippi he would have called for its publication. I am distinctly advised that it doss not bear out the assertion that the election in that State was carried by fraud or intimidation. Tbe negroes had simp'y become disgusted with Ames aud his carpet-baggers.— Courier Journal. President Grant iu his message alluded to depredations by armed bands from Mexico on the people of Texas, but dismissed the subject by saying; "Tue military force of this government disposable for servioe in that quarter is quite inadequate to effectually guard the line, even at those points where the incursions are usually made." The other day, when a drunken row oocurred in Mis sis-ippi. Collector Shanghnessy telegraphed for troops to put down "armed bands," which he said were chasing his deputy, Redmond, around the couutry, and the President at once told Secretary Belknap to tnrnish the requi site war material. Comment upon this is un necessary. — (riu rier-Journal. Have you » piano or an organ ? to Grunewald's and get one.

Thrown from a Cart. —Wednesday morn ing about half-past 9 o'clock, Airs. Banman while on her way to the French Alarket, and when at tbe corner of Danphine and Bar tholomew streets, Third District, was violently thrown from her cart on the street, caused by the Cart colliding with one of the City Iirilroad cars. The unfortunate woman was serionsly injured about her body by the fall She was conveyed to her residence, corner of Burgundy and Forstallstreet, and attended to by Dr. Simoneand, who pronounced her in juries dangerous. No blame is attached to the driver of the car. Had Hls Leg Broken. —About 8 o'clock Thursday morning a boy named Jacob Dorsey 14 years old, while passing on the sidewalk in front of the cot on press on Burgundy street, netr Press, accidentally had his leg broken below the knee by a bale of cotton falling on him. He was conveyed to his home on Burgundy street, near Piety, where he received medical attention. Shooting.— Baptiste Sherry was arrested on Chartres street, between Dumaiue and St, Philip streets, for shooting at Ephraim Powers with intent to commit murder. He is also charged by the officer with carrying a con cealed weapon. A Carnival of Fist Fights. —Charles An gelo and Alarm Davis, two Italian oyster veu dors, engaged iu a free and easy figut, at the corner of Basin and Bienville streets, about the sale ol some fi-,h. They loft their knives at home, and consequently no blood was spilt. Ernelia Mitchell and Bony Early had a fight, corner- of Franklin and Customhouse streets. Bony got a bonnie blue eye. A photographer, Darned Frank Wentson, attacked a young clerk, named Victor Jeager, and got bis head mashed, at the corner of Ala rais aud Bienville streets. The last of the series was an encounter be* 1 tween two women, named Alary Paul and So phie Parker, in a den corner of Treme and Conti streets. They were all placed together in the haunted cells of the old Treme Sta tion. Rescued from Drowning. —About 9:15 o'clock Wednesday morning a boy named Jules Samuel, while playing near the Old Basin, fell into the water, and would have been drowned but fer a citizen, who rescued him and h.d him taken to the residence of his parents, on Carondelet Walk, near Aliro street. Stolen Pe jperty Recovered.— Officer Jor dan arrested two men, named Louis and Wm Pierce, on Dublin street, between Second and Third, at the instance of Air. Christian Kann, who charges them from information rec-rived with having one coat aud one gold watch, valued at $35, in tbeir possession, knowing the same to have been stolen. Police Notes.— Airs. Cloe was arrested for insulting and abusing Mrs. Aloore. Airs. Moore was treated likewise for insulting and abusing Airs. Cloe. James Duncan was found in a vacant honse on Canal street, between Kocbeblave and Dorgenois, at 10:30 o'clock on Wednesday night, under very suspicions circumstances. A youug man named Eli Nell hems was brought to this city on the Rteamer Mary Bell, from tbe State of Mississippi, where he was taken sick, lor the express purpose of having him sent to our Charity Hospital. Edward Livermore was badly used np Wednesday morning at the corner of Ph'lip and Alagnolia streets, by a young man named John llapp. The office of Temple S. Coons, No. 61 Ca rondelet street, was found open Wednesday night. The doors were secured by the officer on the bt at. Another broken bridge is îeported at the corner of Dumaiue aud Claiborne streets. Alayo Brulette was picked up in the Second Alunicipal Police Court for assaulting Louisa Alurray with a dangerous weapon. The bridge corner of St. Andrew and Lm rent streets is broken and in a dangerous condition. Numerous complaints have been made in regard to broken and dangerons bridges in tbe rear part of the First District. The at tention of the proper authorities is called to this fact. Mrs. Alary Finnan, an old lady, while stand ing on the corner of Rousseau and Washing ton streets, Wednesday morning, waH in sulted and abused in the most shocking man ner by a crowd of bad boys; one of them, a yonth named J. Dillenkoffer, went so tar as to strike Her with a rock, and afterwards re tired iu the Sixth Precinct Statien. Mary Cronan was surrendered by her se curity. Strangers should not fail to visit Grune wald's splendid stock of pianos. It would be well enough to have a few more doctors ot laws. Most of the laws in this country are ailing half the time. The mysteries of Chicago's "crooked" whisky will soon be laid before the public. The modes of cheating the government dif fer but little from those employed - in St. Louis. It is, however, plain in all cases that only through official connivance have the frauds been perpetrated. " Let no guilty man escape."— N. Y. Herald. EDWARD L.
