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"

Report of the Majority.
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.

understood, that in regard to the essen
tial features of the election and canvass

stantial dispute between the members

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
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.

A Real Blessing to Wcn.en.
Mm. 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. N. Y."
