Naw YORKERS are testing the question

- THE Chamber of Commerce will to-day
wrestle with the Texas Pacific subsidy
Auestion. If, as the friends of the road
claim, the project is a feasible one and
'the road sure of being a paying institu
tion, there are capitalists enough read y
to take hold of it without any Govern
pent complications in the matter. The
shape in which aid is asked by this coin
,. pang is the worst which the Govern
. , anent could become a party. A direct
donation is much better in the end than
- going security.

them to free telegraphy over the West

pst as potent as one in any other form.
Would it not be well enough for an In
- guiry of thia kind to be made? It is an
' Sounced that President Grant, on re
seiving one 'of these passes, at once re
turned it to the company, but it was re
!narked at the time that of a large num

Aidering that part of the testimony in re
lation to the MOO mortgage on Beech
. srls house to secure money borrowed for
- the support of that paper. Beecher said
be wanted to help Tilton; and lest tbe
!Reedy proprietor of the Golden Age
Should refuse any assistance from that
' !porter, under the circumstances, the
looney was banded to the "mutual
friend," upon whom Tilton was constant
ly drawing. In this way Beecher's
stoney was paid out on the express
account of the paper- The point
clinterest is the fact that the Golden
Age was an infidel journal while Tilton
controlled it; and the question arises,
bow could the great orthodox Doctor
conscientiously support such a paper?.
Mit should be asserted that the great
philosopher, Dr. Reid, subscribed for 100
copies of Ilume's Treatiseof Human Na
ture, no one who knows the doctrines of
, . that work, and who Dr. Reid was, would
believe the statement. It is not in the
mature, nor according to the fitness of
things, that an Evangelical Doctor
should support the propagation
doctrines. But Beecher did con
tribute a very large sum to the Golden
Age, and Moulton says that he ,aided
ton la other sums of money.
Wby did he do so? That is the ques
- lion. There must have been powerful
reasons for such an inconsistency and
Incongruity. We look upon this matter
al equally mysterious with the letter of

1 slow in- the pursuit of news. Papers
which denounced Irwin as a thief and
charged him with pocketing the money
which as spent in Washington have all
ceased, and, strange to say, Irwin is to
day ecarcely criticised.
"Developments of the investigation
have produced an ominous calm, and a
sudden disposition to check further in
quiry is noticeable.
"A strange rumor is afloat regarding
Beck and the Pacific Mail subsidy. Al
together Irwin is the only self-collected
man in this dirty business, and to-night
be is practically master of the situa
tion." Now the point we make is, that while
Reid was treated with the greatest po
liteness, Wetmore ' was shamefully
abused by the committee. Reid's of
fense was much greater than Wetmore's.
Reid had freely made "flings" at the
committee through his leading editorial
columns, conspicuously leaded, while
Wetmore had only the use of a solid re
porty's column of a California paper.
Readers always discriminate between
the two departments.
Much allowance is made for reporters,
while the editorial miters are expected
to exercise greater deliberation and care
in positively asserting anything that is
not true. Wetmore's offense was, there
fore, very slight in comparison wtth
Reid's. Indeed, it does not appear that
he was guilty of any offense at all, while
Reid did make charges and insinuations
of the truth of which he should have
. been informed. . .
It is a riporter's duty to give not only
facts but important street, bar and club
room gossip touching matters of public
concern:. It is the duty of the editer-in
chief to exclude from his leading columns
mere rumors, unless he knows them to be
well loundect.
Now contrast the treatment the two
men received. Reid was treated in a
gentlemanly inanuert and when one Of
the Committee insinuated that editors
should know whereof they write, the
whole Committee were reduced to sil
ence by the following utterance:
"Mr. Reid remarked that great injus
tice was done to Journalists in suppos
ing that they must have personal knowl
edge of everything they write, which in
the nature ot things is not possible pbr
haps once in a thousand times."
Mr. Reid testified teat the two mem
bers to whom the Tribune had referred
as "unfit to sit on the committee were
Dawes atict Wood;" and yet he swore
that he had "no reason to suspect Dawes
in the least!" It is clear that Reid had
nq reason to suspect 'Wood unless the
money had been found in his boots, since
be fought the subsidy from beginning to
end, and there was no motive for tender
ing him a "swag." On the whole, Reid
was a failure before the committee.
The manner in which Wetmore put his
statement was proper. A mere-reporter
is not supposed to know everything nor
to be a profound logician. And yet be
cause poor Wetmore did not feel at lib
erty to give the name of the person or
persons wliom he bad talked with on the
subject he was treated in a most brutal
manner. His statement WitS denounced
' as a ,,lie," "a baseless, malicious lie,
when it was no lie at all, because it was
given as a rumor. Wetmore refused to
give any yimes and he was hurried
away to prison. Look back and read
again what he did report, as quoted by
Mr. Beek in a speech on the subject, and
see how slight was the pretext for this
rough treatment.
Now why the difference in the two
cases? Because Reid is at the head of
one of theleading journals of the eoun
try and is likely to be a permanent editor-in-chief,
while poor 'Wetmore - is
merely a reporter to-day and may be a
,,jour,, printer to-morrow i Reld stepped
, from tollege to the press and has rap
idly risen in his profession; while in all
,
probability Wetmore has been a school
master, or perhaps a shoe-maker or
"clod-hopper."
1 We set this forth to show how short
the world is in true politeness. and men
, hood; and how abusively the aristocracy
feel at hberty to' treat a common mortal
1 who has little influence, while they will
&Inge and creep before one who occu
pies a position of power. So it.is also as
I between wealth and poverty; betw4en
those who do no work and those who
labor; 'between those who have influen
tial relatives and those whose associa
tions are humble; between those who
, are richly draped and those who are
plain in their apparel ; between those
who are expel fenced . and can protect
themselves ana those who are inexpe
1 rienced and easily confused; and be
tween those who are edudated and tal
ented, and those who are of mare. moder
ate capacity and 310 education.
The people. should remember such in
cidents, and every time they think of
them say to themselves, "Gentlemen, we
will bide our time with patience, for a
day of reckoning is coming."

laid a pipeful of tobacco and the matches
alongside his pillow. And how loving

brOwn Moors and withered lea,
The angry winds were sweeping;
Over the great gray northern seas
The masted waves were leaping; ,
And you and I stood close together,
In the chilling gleam of the wintry weather,
As the bare gatmt branches overhead
Shook their lingering. leaflets, gold and red,
While in every faltering word we said
Rang the pitiful wail for the days that were
dead;
For, by the sad peas, 'neath the storm-beat
trees,
Our last tryst we were keeping. 1 0

I scarce could hear the words you tiebbed,-'
' Antid''your passionate weeping,
And the giow from my eager prayer WAS
, robbed
By the chill around us creeping;
From the silent paths, where In summer
weather,
Youth, joy, and music bad met together,
From the cry of the sea-mews flitting past,
O'er the white wild waves in the bitter blast,
From the breakers that crashou on the hoilow
Band,
From the sough of the breeze o'er the dull,
damp laud,
From sea and shore rose "No more, no more,"
As our tryst we were keeping.
There was not a mile butt left, in sooth.
1 tinul the dry leaves round us heaping;
The tter harvest of reckless youth,
Time's Iron hand Was reaping;
Our lips still said, "Forever, forever '0
As the trembling fingers clung togeater.
But even then each sad heart knew
What fate and circumstance meant to do,
, And the mighty billows boomed like a knell,
As wo turnett apart twin that iong farewell:
, And to wind, and ram, and the moaning main,
Lett the last tryst of out keening.
MAUDE WENTWORTH.
"Mother,,do you think be Win come to
night?" Ihe voice was low and tremu
lous, but it refuelled the ear of the lady
who stood gazing anxiously outof the
window. She crossed the room at the
sound of that voice and bent tenderly
over the hod.
"I Mist so, my child; but Ile still and
try to sleep. I want you to get welljutit
as last as y'ou can, for I am going to take
you back to your old homebaby, Char
ley and alland we will be so happy ouce
more, won't we?"
"Mother, I can not deceive you longer.
Ere to-morrow dawns yotir poor Mary
will be sleeping her last long sleep. On,
it Is so bard to dieto leave you child
less; but death would be sweet could I
but feel his arms around me once again,
and my head pillowed on its old resting
place, as in the days of yore. Olt, I A as
so happy! Charley was so good, so kind,
until. the tempter entered our home.
Then came the changelong, long nights
of bitter anguish atm words that hurt me
worse than blows. Oh, how I prayed,
plended tor bun to relorm; but it wais the
same old storya promise et amendment
until all hope died out of my heart;
and you can not know the agony I en
dured as I baw him Atach day sink deeper
and deeper in disgrace.
Her voice died away in a sob, and the
mother, pushing back the long, dark
waves of hair teat in her excitement bad
fallen over her lace, gently laid her back
on the pillow. Hour alter hour she lay
there, unconscious of all around her, and
it was not until one o'clock rung out,
kmd and clear, on tbe iniunight air, that
the invalid was R1'01180(1. Then she star
ted up, gazed wildly around the room,
and exclaimed, "Oh, God, not here!"
mullet' back sobbing in her wrettlicd
110M "Mother, I am dying' Bring me baby;
let me look on its dear little lace once
more before I go. Poor little one!" she
said, clasping it in her arum "Mamma
will never hold you again; never look 1
into your bright, laughing eyes, or leel
those rosy little lipa pressed to hers. Oh,
my child, why can you not go with me?
Mother, to you I give my babe. Be a
mother to it; love it, far the sake of your
poor Mary. And now,. Charley-7-oh, be
kind to him wheu I nin gone; plead with
Dim to slitin the cup that has been his
ruin;. ask him to strive, for the sake of
our little Maude, to be a man, and to live
true to himself and to his God. Oh, if I
could only see Ifini once more: But tell
him my last thought, my lust prayer,
shall be for him, and to remember some
times her whose young life was given all
in vain."
She ceased speaking, a slight shudder
ran over her frame, and the.soul of Mary
Wentworth, the drunkard's wife, was
with the angels.
do not think that there is a man so
utterly debased but that there come, in
some period ot his life, seasons ol re
morse.: and only those who have passed
ihrough the same experience know what
Charles Wentworth's feelings were as
be bent over that still beautiful form,
and gazed on the wreck he had made.
Long he stood there, communine, it
may be, with his conscience; but anast
he went awayL-to reform, you think ?
No; but to drown again the thought of
his dead and of his cruelty alike in the
maddeniag potion that had already
proved his curse. And in few mouths
we lind hitnwhere F.sleeping beside
his angel wile ill a drunkard's untimely,
dishonored grave.
Long, weasy years have passed away,
and our little Maude is a child no longer.
She has more than lulfilled the promise
of her girlhood, und grown up the light
and joy of her grandmigther's heart.
Very beautilui is she BOW as she gazes
up into the haughty, handsome face of
Linn Meade, and very sad and tentler is
his voice as be asks:
"And this Is my an8wer, Maude?"
"Yes, Linn; I eau not trust my luttire
in yeur hands until you teach to taste
not that, which broke my mother's heart
and caused my father to fill an untimely
grave."
"011, Maude, I heed 'you so much. You
with your pure lite could learn me to
live for a higher, holier purpose. 01), as
you value my soul's salvation, give ine.
your life to purify mine."
"No, Linn; God alone min do that; go
to Him, and in good tiine HS will gave
you victory."
"Oh, you do not know what you ask,
but I shall light and struggle, for I know
my reward is great. I go now; nor shall
I return until I am able to claim you."
Once again in society, it was a contin
ued effort for Linn Meade to resist the
temptation that constantly haunted him
and tried to drag him down; - lint he bat
tled on and in a year found his victory
coinplae. Ile went back to Maude,
then, and to-day, as be looks back, he
does not regret that long, weary year of
Waitilig, for it gained him anoble wife.
A Friend appeared in coust recently
during a trial, and stood, as Quakers are
accustomed to, with his hat on. A 'very
efficient marshal, employed for this oc
casion to assist in preserving order, re
garding this as an insult to the court
and to himself as her 'representative, ap
proached the - Friend and demanded
imperatively that he should uncover.
The friend explained that he meant no
disrespect, but it was the custom of his
people.' ..lt would not do. The brave
special marshal raised his cane and
knocked the offending broadbrim on the
floor. The Friend paid no attentionto
this but retnalued motionless. In a little
while the marshal returned, picked up
the bat and handed it to the Quaker,
who took no notice of it whatever and
the marshal deposited It on the ?able.
But the marshal was not at his ease, and
shortly after Able he again appeared,
took the bat and placed it very gently on
the Friend's bead aud the last we saw

by those who have them. Keepitig pace
with the polities of the day, Fashion can
neither decide to accept boldly what it
has or to resist resolutely what It has
not. -
The association of two shades of the
same color, one very dark and the other ,
very light, or else of two different colors,
will be largely used during the coining
spring. Very dark blue-gray and very
iight blue-gray are the fashionable
shadds. Amon the different colors that
are combined in a dress, those which
are seen oftenest together are gray and
blue, olive bronze and blue, flesh pink
or salmon and garnet, and -violet and.
light green. The dressmakers of the day
are forced to study painting, or at least
the works of Colorists, for the least
doubtful combination would make this
fashion a ridiculous fright.
If every dress nas a different trimming,
it must be added. that there has never
been so great a diversity in the sliape of
waists and sleeves. Although the cui
rass or armor waist Is universally worn
for street dresses as well as for evening
toilettes, it must not be concluded that
these are all alike. It is true that all
participate in the same style; but us
ery lady has a number of dresses, she
naturally wishes them to vary in style.
Ile waists tire .therelore made with
1 round points in front and basqu es turned
up with revera single or double
breasted, and buttonatit the side; with
heart-seeped or square necks, or closed
at the throat and opening below over a
vest; but always, and above all, with a
prolusiou of jet embroidery or jot braid.
And this is by no means the old-fashlotted
passementerie braid mixed with 11
jet, but the braid is enurely composed

' Bonnets are decidedly, though intper
ceptibly, increasing in size. Each new
bunnet is a little larger than its prede

The visit of the Empress of Russia to
Paris, short as it was, exercised an lin
mediate inlittenceon the fashions. We
saw large eloaks sprieging up in all di
rections. 0110 ot those, the Czarina,
edged with tar and furnished With huge
sleeves aimost as long as the cloak, with
small, almost tight, inner sleeves; has
the most cattan-like, Russianotud Ori
ental appearance that can be imagined.
aping out to see something ot Paris,
the Empress covered her bead and ears
under her bonnet with a long scarf of
white tulle, tied under the chin where
upon this scart at once became t'he fash
ion, and even received a name of its
own, the Frilease.
The fashioa of woolen fr.bries cep
tinues, and is adapted to all occasions.
For theta nee, a dinner drese which I liftW
yesterday in preparation, and which is
destined for a very yvealthy and ex
tremely 'elegant young married May, was
composed as follows: Very long skirt of
pink faille, trimmed with ruches of the
same faille, ravelet out on each side al
most their entire width thus resembling
so many bands ot featlere, but iighter
even than feathers themselves, and, at
all events, more brilliant. in front of
these ruches were arranged ,iu curves on
the bottom of the skirt, while In the back
they extended up very high...Tablier of
cashmerti,of a paler bhade of pink
than the skirt,' trimmed witit slimier
ruches, and tied behind under a bow of
pink faille ribbon three-eighths of a yard
wide. Corso:go open en carve, but ar
ranged in slice a manner as to simulate
a faille corsage over which was wurn a
cashmere corsage shorter than the first;
Faille ateeves, with cashmere trimmings,
reaching to tne elbow, With full under
sleeves of fine lace. The same lace edged
the neck of the corsage. The dress WIIS
completed by a parure of diamonds and
garnets en cabochon, composed of a neck
lace with peudants and a large breast
plate. These garnets are considered as
representing the dark shade of the
toilette. In the hair wait worn simply a
rose supporting a biltterfly of diamonds
and garnets.
Stufis. laces, passementerie, fur, and
feathers are no longer deemed suilleient
for the trimmings of dresses. Metal
even is mixed with them. Large plates
or buckles of gold and silver are ueed to
lasten the drapings of over-skirts and
tabliers. And even these are not
enough: little chains of lold aDd silver
are added, according to the dress and its
ornaments. I mention the fact only to
fulfill the.duty which makesit incumbent
on me to chrouicle everything that is
morn, but I refuse tny approbation to
this strange fashion, and hope and be
lieve that it will continue to be stamped
as au extravagance. It would be strange
if we should choose the instant when we
have become a republic to cover our
selves with chains.
The fashiou of flower garments be
comes more and more marked at this
season of ball toilettes. , To the täblier
of flowers worn over a tulle dress has
just been added strings of ilOWCTS which

of Princess Aprons. The waist and

A recent writer speaks thus of the
possibilities of the granges in the obtain
ing of accurate statistical iniormationt
The National Grange might open corres
pondenee each year with paid agents in
Russia, Hungary, Poland, France, Eng
land, Germany, etc., snd obtain positive
and reliable information as to the quan
tiiy of wheat raised; and at the same
time each subordinate grange in the
United States dud Canada might report
to the National Grange each week, dur
ing the growing season and harvest
time, the amount of wheat on hand or
harvested in their respective localities.
These reports could be tabulated and
suimuarized, and furnished weekly to
every subordinate grange in the United
States. The farmers would then have
reliable information based upon actual
data, and not be compelled to accept the
guesses of the itAricultural bureau; or
the gaveled reports ot interested bulls
and bears. The National Grange could
also give, in these weekly statements,
the amount of wheat consuming popula
tion in each nation of the world, and the
average consumption of Wheat per cant-.
ta; and could ttitn calculate to a cer
tainty the relation of supply to demanO,
and what the Price of wheat shpuld be.

The case of ex-Postmaster Thomas
Foulds against Wm. Lutlistrom money
order clerk, to recover $825 stolen from
his desk, was before Judge k'orce yes
terday. The testimony showed that the
package lay near the edge of the desk,
and that it was probably taken by per
sons in the crowd on the outside. Foulds
clainied that there Wag a box provided
to put tile money in, but the witness for
the other s!tte showed that the box was
only for distributed inoney, and not for
packages, and that Luthstrom had no
other place to lay the money, aud that to
open and stint the box whenever be paid
an orderwould have caused him to lose
more than an hour's time every day,

most practical relations of life. How to obtain
subsistence for the body and the means of com
fort for the household is the first question that
concerns the mass of men. and ought to be the
first question with every young pers'on. No one
ought to consider his father rich enough to
raise him above the necessity of applying tbe
first efforts of his early mamma to the purpose
of obtaining a living.
Tile Lyceum method can be fully understood
by a single Illustration. Suppose we lire .en
tering upon the topic of Labor as an element of
pmduction. The Professor glies a lecture
chiefly for the purpose of showing the class
how to investigate it for theinsolVes. , He then
assigns the leading authors to the members of
the class; to one, Adana Sm Bli's Wealth of
Nations, to another, Say's W ork, to another, Elie
montli, to a fourth, Senator Tracey, to a .fifth,
J. S. Mills' Work, to a sixth, Thornton on La
bor, to a.seventh, Cathy, tp the 'eighth, List, to
the ninth, the Work by Horace Greeley, and
so on through the whóle class. Probably three
days should be given to preparation for the
recitation. Each one is required to condense
into as brief a compass es possible the most
important viks and facts given by his author,
and deliver his synopsis either orally or front
manuscript to the class. Three days are given
to the preparation, and the recitation weepiest
half a day; the same topiò to be continued up
til thoroughly mastered by the class. Most of
all, the students areAtiged to have opinions of
their ONIT
So, also, when the subject of Money and
Banking comet up, it is investigated in the
same way. The authors are distributed to the
class, and all Views that have been urged are
brought under consideration. The professor
introduces it with a lecture in, which he ex
plains the function of money, the different
kiwis et money, such as metalic, mixed and
paper, the nature of banking, the experience
of nations with the different currencies, dc..
thus enabling the students to search the au
titers to the best aavantage. After three days'
preparation, with several Kither studies en
band, End half a day's recitation, the class wilt
lied all the fog that hangs between the subject
anti the vision of the people dispelled, and the
comfort of a lifetime of intelligence on this
subject, so dark to nearly all the people, is se
cured. So of every other topic in this science. -
addition, it is seen tliat the students have
practical composition, oral speech, grammar,
rhetoric, independent thought and free diseus
sion while learning Political Economy.'
The superiority of the LyeautebMethed
therefore, clear enough. The wonaer Is that it
has not, long since, been geeerally adopted.
