Bergh's Good Work—How the Rich Men Live—A Wonderful Work of Art —The next Democratic Candidate— Taxes—Beecher. Taxes—Beecher. BERGH'S GOOD WORK. to of Henrv Bergh's new Societv, for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children is doing as good a work as his old one for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. He has turned his atten lion to the thousand and one shows in the city. At the Tivoli Gardens, in 8ih Street, is a boy acrobat, ad vertised under the name of "Prince Leo," who nightly performs the most difficulty feats on the tight rope, tie is a little, wee cinui, not over six years of age, delicate and pretty as possible. A man named Leonard, a brute of a fellow,- owns Lim, and has taught him not only the common feats of tight-rope per formers, but many more startling and dangerous. Leonard compelled him to walk the tight-rope bhud folded, to ascend and descend a rope fastened at an angle of forty-hve degrees, and a score more of feats which the oldest equilibrists decline to undertake, and all without any netting underneath to save him in the event of tailing. Bergh stationed a few officers in the audience, and when Leonard and the boy appeared they sprang upon the stage and seized them both. At the examination the next moi it was shown that the child was the son of a drunken rag-picker in Phi ladelphia, that the father sold him to Leonard, who has trained him. Leonard has habitually beaten, starved and abused him. When practicing, if the child failed in the slightest particular, the brute would kick and braise him, without mercy, He performs none of the feats wil lingly ; in fact, there is terror in his face from the moment he is forced upon the rope till he is through. He trembles so with fear during his per formance that tbe chances of failure are largely increased, but he does it because he knows that if he fails he takes the chance of being killed by the fall, and that if he escapes that, his brute of a master will half-kill him with beating. Think of putting a boy seven years old, on a small rope stretched from floor to ceiling, a distance of sixty feet, at an angle of forty-five degrees, and compelling mm to crawl up the terrible incline ! And then when at the top, sixty feet from the stage, to slide down the steep descent with frightful velocity, grasping the rope only with his toes, bringing up in the arms of his master. Judge Donohue, will put the child in the charge of the Society, who will find him a home. Bergh will go through all the shows, and take every one of these children out of the hands of the brutes who own them. It is estimat ed that there are three thousand children in the city similarly employ' ed, in the cheap theatres and in beg ging on the streets, who are slaves ra every sense of the word. JVlr. Bergh proposes to emancipate them. HOW THE RICH MEN LIVE. Because a man happens to be rich n aoes not ioiiow mat ne lives in gorgeous style. Indeed the "bloat ed aristocrats" of New York, or the most of them, live as quietly as other people, and a great deal more so than thoBe whose wealth is of more recent date. Vanderbilt. whose wealth runs up a long way into the milllions, lives on b ourth street, a most unfashionable neighborhood in jn ew i oik, in a very plain house. nam maen lives on 20th, near 1 mi a " - Fourth Avenue, Peter Cooper, on the corner of 22d and Lexington Avenue. Cyrus W. Field, on Gra- mercy Park, and Hamilton Fish, on 17th and second Avenue. Daniel Drew's abode is on the corner of 1 7th and Broadway. All these locations have been abandoned by the fash ionable, years ago, but the old fel lows love their old homes, and stay in them. Peter Goelet, one of the richest men in New York, lives on the corner of 18th and Broadway, in a oia uouse with ground enough bdoui it io pasture a cow. and he keeps his cow on It. '' The ground is worth crobablv 8500.000. hnt ftnelnt. ia fond of milk, and he wants it fresh and good. Counting the interest on the ground, the old gentleman's mi k costs mm about $10 per quart, but he doesn't care for that. He wants good, sweet milk in 'his ooffee and e gets it. A. T. Stewart, has a wonderful mansion on 5th avenue, but I rathor think he built it more for an adver tiement for his business than any- wing eiBe. ihe shoddv aristrinrata t.h mid- denly rich all live on 5th avenue, ana tne streets that run into it above 25th.

MOODY AND SAN KEY are not- the sensation they were when they began. You can get into the rink now, without the slightest trouble, and unoccupied seats beo-in show, otul the evangelists keep up their efforts with as much vigor as ever, and the religious ele ment of Brooklyn seems to be in no wise discouraged. While their sue- cess is not what we anticipated, there can be no question but that they have accomplished much it good. They have succeeded in awakening the professing christians to a more keen Rense of their duty. They have brought back backsliders, and have alarmed thousands of sin ners. The requests for prayers come from every state in the Union. Moody's method is peculiar. ' He se lects a subject for each meeting and compels the attention of the audi ence to that one subject, and noth ing else- For instance the other morning, the subject was "love," Frequently a good brother would get at some other phase of Christian experience, but the moment he did so Moody would bring him back. He had to talk of "love" or nothing. They now hold five meetings each A WONDERFUL WORK OF ART. A memento of interest is the por trait of Washington, woyen of silk by the Jacquard loom, in Lyons, 20 years ago. JN ot a dozen copies or this curiosity exist, and the marvel ous skill of their workmanship, to gether with their rarity, put a high value on those in private hands. The owners of the Jacquard loom wove pictures in the same manner of the crowned heads of Europe. Napo leon I, Josephine, Victoria, the Pope, and Charles X., among the rest which were always reserved as pres ents for Sovereigns, one copy being made for each member of a royal family, after which the frames were destroyed so that no more could be produced. The United States Con sul at Lyons seeing these portraits, suggested to the manufacturers thu there were millions or sovereigns in our country, and it would be well to present them with a picture of their Washington. Thenrni, ronson, rni lippe & Viberty, agreed, if the Con sul would send an authentic portrait of Washington; an engraving after Stuart's Washington was selected as a model. The labor of making one of these silk pictures is some thing incredible. It took two years to construct the loom, three engi' neers worked at the design, and 28, 000 sheets of cardboard were used in the weaving. The chain is of white silk, the filling of black and white. t;ach stitch, guided by passing through a perforated bit of card which as it was used, rose to the top of the loom and was cut off. The best of the finest silk is used for these woven pictures. An expert selected from a hundred pounds of the choicest raw silk only ten pounds fit for the purpese, the rest going to make superlative dress silks. Of the portraits made, the hrst was tor Mr. Goodrich, whoso idea it was to have this imperishable souvenir of Washington: three others were pre sented through him to the cities of Boston. New York and Philadel phia. One now hangs in the Boston Atheneum, the New York copy is in the Governor s room at the City Hall. A few others found their way by gift or exchange to private hands. Consul Goodrich entreated that copies bought be multiplied and sent here, urging that a fortune might be made by the sale of them, but the Frenchmen shrugged their shoulders, obstinate on a point of pride which was with them to keep these weav ings unique.. Mr.. Ctoodrich was lately offered $5,000 for his picture by a millionaire of this city, who is a collector of curious things, but this offer was no temptation. A copy of this silk engraving is in the pos session of Mr. O. S. Baldwin of Brooklyn. Ihe picture has every appearance of a steel engraving in line and stip pie, is peculiarly soft and rich in shading, and an admirable study of Stuart's portrait. Of the thousands who have seen one of the five first copies in the Governor's room, not one in ten thousand has nad tne slightest idea that it is one of the marvels of the 19tn century inven tions. No one detects the fabric except by closest scrutiny, but it is silk, and well nigh imperishable. THE NEXT DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR THE PRESIDENCY. Gov. Sam Tilden, a few months ago, was confident of being tbe next Democratic candidate for the Presi dency. He had it all fixed. His programme was to help to beat Al ien in Ohio, which would settle him; to help elect Pershing m Pennsylva nia, which he could afford to do, Pershing having no Presidential as pirations, and then to make his name the rallying cry of the Democracy of New York, which was to carry the State by 60,000. A pretty pro gramme was it not But somehow it didn't work. Allen was barely beaten in Ohio, rershing was un mercifully beaten in Pennsvlvania. and the cry of "Tilden and Reform" was beaten 0,000 in the city of JNew xork, and escaped defeat in the&tateby only 17,000! Where does that leave the calculating Til den? Allen is as strong as ever he was, and if there is a man on earth who has earned the undying hatred of Western Democrats that man is Tilden. Pennsylvania Democracy owes him nothing, for with his help they were beaten out of their boots, and no man from New York need enter the ring who has Tammany stuok to him, and who came so near sinking his party in the State. Exit Tilden. If he ever had a chanoe it is gone. Small men should never undertake large combinations. The Democracy must look elsewhere for a candidate. And when it comes to a point, the people of New York are not as fond of the Democracy as they were on general principles. Now THAT TAXES ARE HIGHER THAN EVER, they remember that the city has been under Democratic rale for years, and for whatever is bad in the government, which is to say the entire government, that party is re sponsible. When business was boom ing, and when the property-owner had merely to put figures on his property, they did not care for tax es. But now it is quite different. Rents are down a half, and thous ands of buildings are standing emp ty, while taxes arc mounting up frightfully. The taxes have to be n.iiil whnther tha husinoss vii'ldq profit or not, or whether the tuild- ings rent or not. And now that they are worried to raise money to pay their taxec. thev becrin to hnJ that pays to pay some attention to iiol- itics, and the more men think the less Democracy suits them, it was this feeling that overthrew Tamma n v this fall it is this feeling that will give the State to the Republi cans next year, sure. The rings that have plundered this city and Brook lyn own the Democratic party, and the tax-payers find that they can on ly kill the rings by killing the party. Democracy in New York is not a corpse yet but the death rattle is in its throat. Let us make a judicious nomination, and there is no trouble about carrying New York. BEECBER may be as popular as ever in his own church, but he is not outside of that body. He attended the Moody and Sankey meetings quite regularly up to last Saturday. The clergymen present on that day were invited to remain after the meeting, to consult as to the best means of carrying on the work, and Beecber stayed with the rest, but, alas! he was coldly re ceived, and many of th reverends did not speak to him at all. He has not been at the Rink since. In his sermons he speaks of Moody as "Brother Moody," but the evangel ist always prefixes the plain "Mis ter" to Beecher's name. There is no getting rid of the fact, the public have lost confidence in Beecher. He does not stand where he did two years ago, and never will. Innocent or guilty, he has lost his grip, and the sooner he withdraws from pub PIETRO. New York, Nov. 17, 1875. Persistent Impostors. Some months ago we took occa sion to call attention to a combina tion of confidence-men located in the city of New York, from where they prosecute an illegal business through the United States mails nnder the guise of the publishers . of a news paper Directory We say guise, for under this ostensible business they pursue a systematic, and persistent scheme of blackmail. Those news papers that are in a position to re fuse to have dealings with the Direc tory publishers are punished with having their circulation underrated in the so called Directory. J ournals that do the bidding of the concern have their circulation over-estimated. The precious Directory com piled on black-mailing principles, pure and simple is put forth as a reliable guide to advertisers, who, not all aware of the disreputable practices of the directors of the Directory, may put confidence in the utterly unreliable publication. Pub lishing the Newspaper Directory is only a small part of the calling of the firm in question. They are adver tising agents entirely superfluous middlemen, standing between the publishers and public, and insisting on a good round commission for their fifth-wheel-to-a-wagon services. Time and again we iave refused advertisements sent us by these ir responsible parties, because we have no desire to have any dealings with them. When in these columns we de nounced the concern as a eeaubina tion of confidence-men, wo thought that we had secured immunity irxsro the importunities of a set of impos-. tors. Being kicked out of tbe front-: door does not in the least affect the sensibilities of the Directory pub lishers. They merely pick them selves up and come around to the back-gate ; and, finding that bolted, they throw insulting missives over the fence. Several such documents have been hurled at us. And as it is rather a long throw from New York to Philadelphia, the conven ient United States mail a channel of intercommunication of which so many confidence-men avail them selves is employed by tbe Direct ory compilers. Long ago we returned some of these insolent letters unopen ed, informing the senders that we desired no futher communication with them. Even this decided snub proved ineffective on the brazen cheeks of the incorrigible confidence men. Last wesk we received an other communication from them, which contained a slip from their Directory containing a false state ment of our circulation. To save themselves from a suit for damages, the wily rogues insert behind the lying figures the word estimated. It is quite as potent as the word al leged, which is made to eover a multitude of utterances that wolud otherwise be legally libelous. If these compilers of the Direc tory of newspapers know anything of the circulation of old-established journals published within a hundred miles of their main office, they know that the circulation of the IHspatck is nearly double the figures they warily publish as an estimate. Now, if we chose to do business with the Directory people, they would quickly put our circulation as far above the true figures as now it stands below. We do not complain of the false estimate, but merely desire to en lighten the public on the inside workings of the concern. . As we refused to have anything to do with the confidence-men. they thireted for revenge ; and the onlv.wav thev could obtain it was to attempt to in jure our business by publishing a gross and wulfully.underrated esti mate of oar circulation. Futher, they inform ua -that the space in their room reserved for our paper re mains vacant ! and they "presume that neglect to send your publication is the result of "accident, rather than of design." Nothing of the sort, publishers of the Directory. And you know it, and have 1vnow it for a long time. You have been in formed that the Sunday Uispatch desires no dealings with your concern iu any way. And your false esti mate of its circulation has not the lightest influeuce on that well-con- sidured and faithfully -adhered-to de termination. To sensitive people, the efforts of this Directory combination to force us into their service, may savor so strongly of blackmail as to demand legal interference on the part of the authorities. Kash individuals might construe it into a highwayman's de mand of : Commissions from you, or your life ! the bogus Directory serving as a pistol, and the lying igures as the powder and shot. a Placed in either category, highway men or blackmailers, there seems to be no danger of overestimating the effronter.y or entertaining too hearty a contempt for the petty tricks and refined rascality, of those who pub lish the Phil. Dispatch. Some time ago there was an order isssued from the General Superin tendent's office of the Chicago & Al ton Railroad requiring agents and other employes connected with the trains upon the road to wear badges when upon duty, designating the po sition they have, that the traveling public might, without mistake,know who to apply to for information or protection required. This order, in due time was sent to the different agents along the line of the road, together with the badges they were to wear. Among the agents that received this order and badge was Mr. J. B. Madison, of Washington, upon the Western Division of the road, who immediately carried out the order. He was very much pleased with the badge, as it was quite ornamental, and showed to every one the posi tion held. He thought it would save many questions as to the rank he held upon the staff of this large cor. poration, so he wore it continually not only around the town, but to church and other places of amuse ment and when he took off his hat he would place it in a very conspicu ous position, that it might draw at tention. The young men of Washing ton began to feel quite taken aback by the attention given to the young railroad agent, therefore they set their heads together to get a rig on him, which they saw full? carried out lately to the delight of all the citizens of the above named city. They purchased a very fine sword and belt down the road somewhere, and tnen wrote a letter purporting to come from the General Superin tendent, informing all agents that in future they would be required to wear the sword and belt, as it would add greatly to the appearance of the leading official at the station, as well as give him something with which to defend the patrons of the road from the confidence men and pick pockets that are always to be found at a railroad station. This was tak en north and given to the train men who, on the arrival of the train at Washington, delivered it to Mr. Madison, who promptly put it on; and he was seen prominading the streets iu full dress, strutting about as proud as a Major General. The novelty of the thing enaated consid erable laughter among citizens, who began to question him about the cause of all this display; whereupon he showed the instructions. Soma one told him that the whole thing was a joke put npon him, and that he had better see if the thing was general throughout the line; so he repaired to the office, and by tele graph asked the agents at Lacon and VYenonaif they had got their swords, &c, to which they replied they had; that they were the laughing-stock of every one, but they did not mind it, as they would soon become nsed to it. Getting this assurance that there was no joke about it, he resumed bis business without any f nrthei trouble. Before night the joke had gone the length of the wires on every di vision of the road, and a ripple cf laughter was continuous from Chica go, Louisiana and Washington, to Chicago, and probably by this time to every telegraph Ime in the Union. If Mr. Madison ever fcrs the end of it he may bless his lucky stars. Cocxdn't See It. A Grand Riv er Aa'enue grocer saw a boy stand ing aromnd his store the other day, and he approvingly patted him on tbe head and &aid : "Boy go to work. George Wash ington was a worker Thomas Jef ferson swung the ax ; HeDry Clay nsed the hoe." "Did they ?" asked the boy. "They did, my son. Labor is grand ; labor is ennobling ; labor is the foundation beams of this country. The boy who cultivates habits of industry will sooner or la ter achieve sucess and independence. -There are fifty bushels of potatoes in there to sort over. Go to work at them, my boy, and to encourage you I'll give you 15 cents a day. In a few days, if you are industrious and trustworthy, I'll let you saw botne wood, and then pick over soaie beans, and it won't be long aft er that before you can run for Gov ernor ,oMichigan. Come, now, go to woi k." The boy went in and worked for about an hour, aad was then miss ing. On a board was a sign he had left behind bin.

The rails are of sugar ma ple, seven inches by four inches in thickness, and about twelve feet in length. The ties are laid down in the ordinary way, notched, and the rails let into them about four inches. They are then keyed firmly with wooden wedges driven on the aides. The cost of laying this track is $450 mile. No iron spikes are used, and the cost of track laying is about the same as for iron rails. The highest rate of speed for locomotives passiug over this track has been fix ed al 16 miles an hour. It has been estimated that a wooden track will last, ordinarily, from three to four years. At a successful seance in Cincin nati the other night, a man burst in to tears when the medium described very accurately a tall, blue-eyed spirit standing by him, with light side whiskers, and hair parted in the middle. "Do not know him?" in quired a man al his side, in a sym pathetic whisper, "Know him ! I guess I do," repiied the unhappy mau. "He was engaged to my wife, and if he Lad't died he would have married her. Oh, George, George !" He murmured in a voice choked with emotion, "why did you peg out?"
