Chinese Diuner4 and Weddingr.
A correspondent o! the Norristown Herald gives the following account of dinner and a wedding which he at tended in Shanghae : After traversing the oify for some distance, we entered a narrow street from which we were soon ushered bj a stone-paved and covered entrance (fall of sedan chairs) into an upper room. Here a lot of gentlemen were awaiting oar coming, and lay around on opium couches and sitting on chairs, a few of whom could speak a lit tle English. At 12 m. we sat down to dinner. The table was provided, as well as adorned, with a quantity of fruit and vegetables piled in pyramids and cubes. The courses were brought on in regular order by servants, and we soon learned to use our chop-sticks and enjoy the dinner. The courses were served aa follows: 1st. Watermelon seed. 2d. Ohickon breast piled in pyramids. 3d. Roast veal piled in pyramids. 4th. Roast mutton piled in pyramids. 5th. Pigeon eggs. 6tb. Dough balls and mixture. 7th. Boiled bacon. 8th. 8 tewed chicken. 9 th. Shark fins. 10th. Rioe ballp. lltb. Mixed stews. 12th. Sliced ham. 13th. Crab stew. 14th. Shrimp salad. 15th. Cabbage stew. 16th. Fomelus, pomegranates and grapes. 17th. Sliced pears and apples. 18th. Green olives. 19tb. Peanuts, almonds and filberts. 20 tb. Saki and cake, also confections. Tea served at all times. The latter part of the dinner the lady friends come in, play music and play games of forfeits. At 2 A. m. the dinner broke up, and we went on board well pleased with what we had seen. Shortly after one of the Chinese gen tlemen of this dinner's acquaintance got married, and I was one of the few foreigners to go to the wedding. About seven o'clock one evening three other officers and I went per invitation to oall, see the ceremonies and pay our respects. On our arrival the band out side the residence played furiously, and we entered to meet the bridegroom in his full dress suit, which is most gor geously loud. lie was a mandarin of rank, and his button glittered oa Lis breast, while a peacock feather waved on his cap. The peacock feather is held sacred, and can only be worn by dignitarieB. We went through a long dinner after being introduced to innumerable China men and being treated with the greatest respect. The rooms were hung with Chinese lanterns of the largest size and the walls adorned with picturesque, suitable mottoes, all in Chinese. A band of singing boys were in the center of the dining-room, who sat be fore an ornamental framework made in imitation of the bridal couch. There were some dozen tables in the room, and the endless dinner was plen tifully interspersed with games and aki. This over we went up-stairs with all hands to tease the bride," which is a custom among Chinese. If any one can make her laugh she will make a poor wife. Notwithstanding all the jests offered, this bride sat in her bridal robes as immovable as a statue. We took a look at the beautiful bridal couch, and then retired from the scene to allow the Chinese to enjoy themselves unconstrained. A Slow Train. The lion. O. T tells a good story of a slow railroad in the northern part of the State. He says he went there gunning, and came to a short line of road on which was run a single car, the forward end of which was partitioned off for luggage. He took his dog in the car with him and put him under the seat. Presently the conductor came along and insisted that the dog should go into the baggage-room, which, after some altercation, was done; but here the the baggage-master demanded a fee of fifty cents, which was denounced as a "swindle," a "put-up job " between the conductor and the baggage-master, and that sooner than pay it he would tie the dog to the train and let him work his passage. The conductor as sented, and the dog was hitched to the reai of the train. The dog, so T says, kept along easily with the train, but the conductor began to get uneasy, making frequent trips to tho engineer, urging him to increase the speed of the train, and back again to watch . the effect npon the dog. The latter began to show signs of fatigue, but after a while caught his -eoond wind," aud was keeping along as before. The con ductor now ordered the engineer to heave all the coal into the furnace and utir up the fire, which being done, the speed was perceptibly increased. The cond act or again went to the rear of the car to observe the effeofc, but the dog had dis appeared, whereupon he triumphantly called T 's attention to the fact. The latter, after taking a glance at the situ ation, quietly pointed ti a crack in the floor of the car, "and there." said he, "was the do,?, oomfortably trotting along under tho car, and licking the grease from one of the axle boxes I" Harper $ Magazine. A Remarkable Murderer. Charles Peace, who ts hanged, at Leeds, England, for a a9irder commit ted some years ago, v" one of those characters who, in spite of an absolute moral repulsiveness, attract such atten tion to their careers that they pass easi ly into what is loosely termed the ro mance of crime. Here was a murderer with a price on his head coolly taking up his residence in quiet and respecta ble suburbs of London, passing himself off as a British householder of easy means and refined taste3 particularly addicted to costly violins aud at the same time pursuing a career of burglary which mingled audacity and success in equal proportions. Like all criminals of his kind, however, he fell at last into the toils. He who had baffled all the deteotivea and hoodwinked whole com munities waa arrested on one of his rob bing expeditions by an ordinary police man, though after a desperate struggle.' He was sometime in custody before it waa known who ho really was. Ho will recall to Americans the equally strange career of the murderer Ruloff, executed at Binghamton, in this State some eight years ago, who pursued burglary aa a means of livelihood, not stopping at , murder, but who devoted his spare time to profound philological studies end was deeply versed in the whole body of modern science, New- York Herald.

The majority report of the Potter oommittee, which has been adopted by a vote of six Democrats to three Repub licans (Mr. Butler being absent), says that the confessions of conspirators who have become dissatisfied are worth little. bnt points to the fact, not generally understood, that in regard to the essen tial features of the election and canvass in Florida and Louisiana there is no sub stantial dispute between the members of the committee the .Republicans hav ing called no witnesses in Florida and only a few in Louisiana, except as to the conduct of the visiting statesmen, and incidentally about intimidations. It dismisses entirely the testimony of An derson, Jenks, Mrs. Jenks, Weber, and that class of witnesses, and deals with the case upon what it regards as the general and controlling facts alone. The report then reviews the election in Florida, declaring that the State voted for Tilden, but was illegally counted for Hayes. It then deals with the con duct of the visiting statesmen, and par ticularly that of Mr. Noyes, as contrast ed with that of General Francis O . Barlow, whose fidelity to all his obliga tions, and integrity, independence, fair ness and truth the report especially commends. The report draws attention to the fact that suoh a wrong might be repeated in any State at any presidential election, by the. canvassers withholding the an nouncement of the result of the election until the day fixed for the meeting of the electoral college, and then declaring persons who had never been voted for to be electors, when, according to this decision, suoh electors would be entitled irrevocably to cast the vote of the State. It therefore recommends a law provid ing that where there is dispute as to who are the real electors of any State, the judgment of its court of last resort, if certified to Congress before the meet ing of the two houses of Congress to receive and count the electoral vote, shall be conclusive as to the right of the disputing electors, and which vote from the State shall be counted, unless the two houses of Congress shall other wise agree. The report then takes up the case of Louisiana, comments on the powers of the returning board, speaks of its trick ery in getting up false affidavits, and refers to the registration frauds in New Orleans, and tho alleged Republican conspiracy in East Feliciana. The re port says that the returning board would never have so outraged the people but for their encouragement from the visit ing statesmen, and the support which they and the troops gave them. Then follow details as to how some of the visitors were deceived by the local man agers, and innocently "co-operated in the frauds of the returning board, while others did not. It refers very briefly to the alleged bargain by which Hayes, who had three thousand votes less than Packard, got counted in, while Packard went out; and mentions Mr. Sherman's offer to prove intimidation, but says that whenever the committee offered to receive it the evidence was not produced, and they were met by some sham excuse for not producing it; how they had ex amined many of the witnesses that were before the returning board, who, in al most every instance, recanted and ex plained how they came to make their false affidavit in the first place, and how suoh statements aa they made before the returning board were totally unfounded. Reference is then made to the Sherman letter, in regard to which the report simply gives the facts as they stand, stating that a letter was act rial ly written and largely influenced political action iu Louisiana, whoever signed it; and draw ing attention to the attempt charged to be in the interest of Mr. Sherman by Mrs. Jenks, whose husband and brother are employed in the treasury depart ment, to induce the committee to pro duce a forged letter. , The report closes with a reference to the danger of returning boards, and the greater danger of controlling eleotions and protecting canvassing boards by federal troops, and, above all, to the crowning danger with which the coun try is threatened by reason of the enor mous patronage centered in the presi dency, which makes the presidential office a prize so great that in order to control it the grossest frauds and viola tions of the law may be expected on the part of those who tlesire to profit by that patronage. It concludes with the finding that full effect was not given to the electoral votes of Florida and Louisi ana ; that Noyes, Sherman and others encouraged this result ; that the second certificate from Louisiana was forged as to two of its names, Kellogg and Clark being privy to the deed, and that Til den and Hendricks received a true ma jority of the electoral vote and were the real choioe of the people of the United States at tne last presidential election. The Minority Report. The miuority report of the committee is signed by tne tnree .Republican mem bers. The report compliments Chair man Potter upon his fairness and equit abJ lulings, but dissents from many of tue views presented in the majority report. : The report says that the Republicans confined themselves to the task of trying to make the inquiries instituted by the majority something more tnan a .Democratic in vestigation of Republicans, so that what ever was put before the world might have some of the elements of an exam ination of both sides. The original subject of the investiga tion was the honesty or dishonesty of the election in Florida, Louisiana and South Carolina. For two years prior to October,. 1878, the report says, Mr. Tilden and his agents, in season and out of season, had iterated and reiterated the charges that the canvassing boards of the doubtful States had aoted fraudu lently and corruptly in the discharge of sworn duties. - If these charges had been fortified by any proof, the char ackers of those who made the charges would be of no consequence whatever, But in fact, the whole investigation, with the 3,000 pages of hearsay and falsehood, had not afforded the slightest proof of what was asserted. No man, the report states, had come forward to say that any bribe was accepted, or that any member of any canvassing board had indicated any desire to betray his trust. Every intimation of that kind had been traced to some Democrat and there ended; and that Democrat had csver been brought before the commit. The report rji I T'.Z to Lot3 testimony Mr, Tilden referred, although goaded by sickness and imaginary wrongs, never for ft moment admitted any improper conduct at the time. He only thinks from after-knowledge that be may have been mistaken. Ueneral Barlow, whose conduct has received the compliments of the majority, after full Knowledge oi the workings of Mr. Cow gill's mind, admits his honesty of pur pose and that of all the others. As to the South Carolina board, the report says, the full, free and uncon tradicted testimony of Mr. Dunn satis fied every man who heard it of the ab sence of fraud in South Carolina. These charges, then, of fraud and corruption with which Mr. Tilden and his agents had filled the air, says the report, were nothing except the unsup ported assertions of litigants against whom the courts have decided. The tribunals in the three States decided in favor of the Hayes electors. Straightway the defeated party, with his agents, set up the assertion of wrongdoing. To bolster up that assertion by proof, the report charges, was the object of the original constitution of this committee. The committee toiled until the first of August, and found no evidence. Regarding the investigation of the cipher dispatches, the report scouts the idea that Colonel Pelton, living in the house of his uncle (Mr. Tilden), should have conducted negotiations involving such large sums without word or hint to the man most deeply interested. Precisely what the arrangements were by which Mr . Tilden was kept posted as to the doings of his agents, and yet left in a position to make a general denial if he was so left the report says the committee probably shall never know. In regard to Louisiana affairs, the re- gort devotes the most attention to the herman letter. The majority report, it states, fails to say explicitly whether the testimony sustained the charge that such a letter as Anderson and Weber had testified to had been written. The minor ity declares that it does not, and that the palpable perjuries of bothHhe wit nesses named justify a feeling of deep disgust that they should be trusted as capable of creating a serious attack up on the character of a man who has borne a high character in the most responsi ble service of the country for five-and- twenty years. The conduct of the visiting statesmen at New Orleans is then considered by the report, and that of Messrs. Sher man, Garfield, Hale, Kelley and others is declared consistent and frank. As to presidential elections, the report says the manner of choosing electors is by the constitution bo exclusively com mitted to State legislation that it sees no method of Federal interference. The proposition of the majority, that the election of electors should be passed upon by the hignest court of each State, is regarded by the report as impractica ble, because Federal legislation cannot deal with the subject. In conclusion, the report says the in vestigation is incomplete, because the circular , of the Democratic campaign committee of 1876, advising the parade of armed clubs on horseback for the purpose of intimidating the negroes, was ignored; that neither Mr. Sherman nor Mr. Hayes is implicated in any im proper conduct or corrupt proceedings, but that the cipher dispatches have been confessed to be systematic and deliber ate efforts to corrupt the returning and canvassing boards of the States of Florida, South Carolina and Oregon, by bribes offered in the shapes of great sums of money. The Plague not Sew to Russia. The plague now ravaging parts of Russia is not new to that country, and the epidemic of this year recalls to the people the horrors from whioh Russia suffered a century ago (1770). These were days of trial for Russia; from the south were pressing the formidable masses of Cossacks and peasants under Pugatcheff, who shook the czardom and terrified the serf- holders; while inside the empire was an enemy even more formidable, the plague. The people became reckless and cared for nothing but their lives; they fled from the cities and villages, hid them' selves in the woods, and there died from starvation as well as from the epidemic. Moscow, the heart of Russia, was in a state of anarchy, and there seemed to be no ruler but the plague. The victims died by hundreds in tbe r houses, and the streets were strewn with dead bodies. There were not enough undertakers and money could not procure the needed service, and it was at last necessary to employ prisoners, who were promised pardon. The criminals went to work and put the dead into wagons, which they drove to the places of interment; but they often seized the dying, who uttered their pitiful cries in vain, and many persons were buried alive. In those days children were afraid of their parents and parents of their children; everybody : suspected everybody else, and many perished from neglect and starvation. .Theseare the experiences of the last century, now recalled in Rus sia ; - "." : J The Men and Women of the World Summarizing from the census of 1870, the Journal of Commerce answers a question of the relative numbers of the sexes thus: Of the 38,558,371 persons m the United States, according to the last national census (this was in 1870; there are over 43,000,000 now), 19,493,565 were males and 19,064.806 were females, or 983 women to 1,000 men. No census of the world . has been taken, but we have the proportion of women to men in all countries where an enumeration has been made. The highest in Europe is in Scotland, which has 1,096 women to 1,000 men; Ireland has 1,050; England and Wales, 1,054; France has 1,007; old Prussia, 1,000. The lowest in Europe is in Greece, which has but 940 women to "1,000 men. The total of all Europe is 1,021 women to 1,000 men; the total of America, 980 women to 1,000 men, the total of Africa, as far as known, 975 women to 1,000 men; of Asia (including only Hong Kong, in China), 940 women to 1,000 men; Australasia, 985 women to 1,000 men.

There is no modern fashionable notion quite so absurd as the generally-received idea that to be beautiful and attractive a woman must possess a wan, tpirUueU face and a figure of sylph-like proportions a fragility in nine oases out of ten the result of disease. By many fashionable belles, it is considered a special compliment to be spoken of as frail and deli-oate- They forget that the naturally delicate face and petite figure are very different from the pale and disease-strioken f aoes that meet us in the city thoroughfares, look out from the luxuriant carriages of wealth, and glide languidly through our crowded drawing-rooms, if disease were unfashionable, as it ought to be, not a lady In the land bnt would take every possible precaution to secure i he fresh, bloom ing face and well-rounded figure that only health can give. Ladies should remember that much as gentlemen may profess to admire the face and form paled and emaciated by dis ease, when they choose a wife they prefer a blooming, healthful,, buoyant-spirited woman. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is the ac knowledged standard remedy for female dis eases and weaknesses. It has the two-fold advantage of ouring the local disease and lm- ? arcing a vigorous tone to tne wnoio bjbwd. t is sold by druggists: - .- The destructive progress of that insidious foe to life and health, Horoiuia, mav oe arrested bv the ad of Soovill's Blood and Liver Sirup, a botanic depurent whioh rids the system of everv trace of scrofulous or svphilitio poison, and cures eruptive and other diseases Indicative of a tainted condition of the blood.

Walter Hinckley, of Ootnis Mass., called, in oompany with her hus band, on Dr. David Kennedy, of Bon dout, N. T., the proprietor of the medi cine lately introdaoed into this place, happily named FA.VOBITE REMEDY, and made the following interesting state ment: " For many years I had been a great sufferer from what was called a fibrous tumor; had secured the assist ance of the beet accessible medical men and used many of the patent medicines recommended, but without obtaining any relief. On the oontrary, I grew worse, until I had given up all hopes of recovery. Our neighbor, Mr. John M. Handy, came from Bondout and brought me a bottle of your FAVORITE REM EDY. . Before I had used half of it I experienced a marked improvement, and all my neighbors noticed the great change. I have taken some four or five bottles, and am entirely free from pain; gained fleh, appetite good, sleep well in short, feel like a new being. I have recommended the FAVORITE REM EDY to many of my acquaintances, and all, without an exception, are loud in its praise. To say that I feel thankful is expressing my gratitude in the mildest form. You are at liberty, doctor, to re fer to my case; and I hope all will be lieve me when I say that the FAVOR ITE KKMi:iJX nas proved a real Diess ing to me, ond that no woman suffering from any cf the complaints peculiar to our sex can afford to be without it Bnt, doctor, you must take more pains to tell the people how to avoid the mistakes they have made. To this end, request them to remember that your name is Dr. David Kennedy and the medicine is called (what itis.infac)) FAVORITE REMEDY, price only one dollar, and that you are a practicing phvsician and surgeon of RONDOUT.
