English Castle Distinctions. The distinction between persons who are "in trade" and those who are not is insisted upon with constant vigilance. This discrimination is perpetuated and deepened by the etiquette of the court. If there are any American ladies who value their privilege of going to court (and at the United States legation it is believed that some such remain) it would be well for them to remember this abso lute law when they accept the marriage proposals of british subjects. I know of a case in which one of them was married to a wealthy British merchant, and, going to England.lived very luxuriously; but as the wife of a British subject in trade Bhe could not go to court; while her unmarried sister, being what Pepys wonld have called a she-citizen of the United States,- was solemnly and triumphantly presented. This distinction is carried to absnrd extremes by some persons, generally women, who. although within the court circle, are of snobbish natures, and generally of new-born gentility. It hus been told recently of an English lady, whose married name is of the most ""base and mechanical" origin, that, having had one interview with a governess whom she thought of engaging, and having been much pleased with her, she on the second interview informed her that she was sorry that she could not engage her, as she had dis covered that she had lived in a family the head of which was "in trade," Sir Bashe Cunard. The governess was the gainer by this manifestation of vulgar pretense and fastidiousness, for her ser vices were soon afterwards engaged by a duchess. But in aristocratic society, no less than in a barber's shop, a line must be drawn somewhere; and the England of to-day draws it at a trade. Nor does the consciousness of the consequent distinction, ever present with those who are either above or below the liae, imply arrogance on the one part or subservance on the other; It is recognized and in sisted, on by no persons more than by domestic servants, who, as I have re marked before, are great sticklers upon rank and precedence. A lady who was of rank both by birth and by marriage, and who was the mistress of a great house, told me, as she was kindly ex plaining to me some of the details of such on establishment, that she had once seen a very nice-looking young woman who offered herself for service.and being much pleased with her appearance had expressed, a wish to he housekeeper that she should be engaged. But after a quasi-dompetitive examination of the candidate, the housekeeper reported and said, "That girl is a nice girl, but she would not suit me at all, my lady. . She has only lived at rich merchants' houses in town, and at their little trumpery villas; and she knows nothing of the ways ojf great houses." The lady yielded; for in Such matters a person of her rank submits entirely to housekeeper and to butler who are held responsible, and to whom jail orders are generally given. Atlantic Monthly. A Marriage Procession In Naz.ireeh. While we were r3Sting under some olive trees to-day a marriage procession passed as. It waslod by about fifty men, in their best clothe., mounted and armed, who were escorting a bride home. Some of these men played upon curious musical instruments. In their midst sat the bride, astride upon a white caparisoned horse, led ty a man in flowing robes. Her wonderful garments were Btfff with embroidery, and she was laden with magnificent jewels. She wore the usual jacket, shirt, tunic, fall, and loose trousers, and was attended by four very ugly old hags of bridesmaids, who were nearly as smart as herself. But these an tique damsels( or dames) were distinguish ed by extraordinary head-dresses, com posed of rolls of silver coins about the size of a florin, piled up like the money on a money changer's counter, and arranged around the front of a sort of cap, something of the shape of a great sausage. The prroesslon included a host of women and children, and the rear was brought up by a solitary camel, bearing a huge scarlet and freen box aloft, which box contained the ride.s trousseau. The journey was a long one and to beguile the tedism they sang songs and played upon their queer uium cal instruments, and every time they came tojever so small a plateau beside the rocky path, the men broke out of the order of march and held a sort of miniature tournaments, performing all sorts of intricate evolutions. They would tilt at one another with their long lances, and fire off their lonr guns. Now and then one of them would detach himself from the rest, and really seem to fly up the steep mountain side, his horse clambering over thej rocks, and all the others rushing after him in hot pursuit, shouting and shrieking at the top of their voices.

A Public Revenue Boom. .There was a Aery large increase of re ceipts at the treasury during the month of February over the corresponding month a year ago. But the increase during the first half of March has been even larger. The custom receipts tor the first 15 days of March were $9,000,000, or S3,500,000 greater than for the corresponding days of last year, while the internal revenue re ceipts were over $800,000 greater than for the same time last year.

This is a most extraordinary showing, and if the receipts keep up during the month, the secretary will be able to purchase at least ten. millions of 6 per cent bonds for reduction of the public debt duriug this month, after retaining a sufficient amount of these surplus revenues to meet the de mands of the pending deficiency bill aud to pay the $6,000,000 interest due on the 6 per cent, bonds on the 1st of April.

Ho din not deny that they night have been treated as alleged, but asserted that be knew nothing of it. Mrs. Ouray was stiil more non-comratttal, and the committee were unable to exact any in formation upon subjects under; inquiry. Jack was then tried, but with no better success. At first he positively asserted that he did not understand and could not speak English. . Several questions were put to him in English, but be preserved a most stoical appearance of indifference. Tbe questions were then put to him in Spanish through an interpreter with no better result. - Tbe committee were about to abandon the examination, when Jack suddenly surprised them by stating in very good English that he was not present at the fight and knew nothing of tbe cirenm siances attending it; that he met the sol diers three days before the fight and tried to persuade them to turn back, and that, failing in this and fearing trouble, be had gone away; that be had no hand in the Thornburg fight or tbe Meeker massacre.

The New York HeraliFt special from Paris, March 20th, says: Our correspondent communicates by telegraph to-day facta which will re vive in a still higher degree the interest excited among students of Egyptian mys teries some two or three months ago, by Lieutenant Gorringe's discovery of Ma sonic emblems underneath the pedesta of the obelisk at Alexandria, destined for transportation to New York. Interesting and important as were the discoveries of Commander Gorringe and Dr. Fentor, they were not exhaustive, and the prac ticed eye of another distinguished Masonic dignitary, has just detected an additional series of emblems of a value and signifi cance far greater and more unquestionable than those previously reported. Mr. S. A. Zola, grand commander and president of the Scotch Ancient and' Accepted Masonic rights for Egypt and Egyptian ex-grand master of symbolic Masonry, has exam ined the foundations of the Alexandria obelisk and has discovered another series of stones which not only bear all the existing Masonic emblems, but furnish tho key which has heretofore been lack ing to "explain the entire dimensions and proportions of what proves to have been: an elaborate Masonic edifice including the obelisk itself, the pedestal, the staircase and the hidden foundation. Mr. Zola, professes to be able by his discovery tq throw a vivid light upon the ancient. Egvptian origin of Masonic symbolism,' w hich is so energetically disputed, and it is expected that the publication of bis de tailed drawings which have been secured for the Herald, will finally settle more than one of the problems which lie at the very foundation, not ouly of Masonry but of the obscure and complicated religions system of the early Eyptians.

Later The fire is in tbe hold amongst the cargo and not in the steerage as at first reported. Its origin is unknown. No fires were kept on board the ship and the cargo is not of a combustible character. Thh firemen have now got at the fire and the safety of the ship is considered se cured though extinguishment of the fire will be tedious. ; THE LATEST. At 11 P. the fire in the City of Syd ney is still burning, with no immediate prospect of being extinguished. As far as can be ascertained the fire is just forward of amidships, either in the lower hold or on the lower deck. There is lumber and a lot of Honolulu freight in that part of the ship. Water is being poured in rap idly, and it is probable that the steamer will have to be well flooded. Arrange ments are not yet determided for replac ing her on the line, and there is likely to be a delay of several days, and perhaps a week, in the sailing of the next steamer.

TRIED AXD TRUE. In the midst of a pleasant conversation with his hostess, Harold Arleigh abrapt ly paused, a sudden flush on his fine face, a strange, startled look in his handsome dark eyes. ' , - What he had been about to say no one ever knew; of his ungraciousness he was not conscious until he saw Mrs. Golds by's glance of pohtely-sfirprised inquiry. , rardon me," he said, turning toward her with a winning and apologetic smile; "I saw a lady tmnnir vnn, tmaata now so like a dear friend I knew and lost long ago.that the resemblance quite ex- uieu me.

She is Ermengardo Burroughs, a dear friend, who is ftfjivi nrr wiui me jor a iew weess. auau l intro duce you?" returned the Iadv. "If you wiah if you will be so kind as to honor me, faltered the vonncr man. visibly embarrassed. - His Hostess gave him one keen but covert look. " "ErmeDgarde has made another con quest." she thought. "If I dared I should warn him 1 should tell him that this fair woman, with her alluring, smil ing eyes, her sweet voice and exquisite grace, uas no heart to ie won. "r ive minutes later her two friends were whirling through a waltz together, and she wondered somewhat why Harold had grown so pale, and why Ermemrardo seemed so haughty and coll. "One would think they were lovers who had quarreled," . was her mental criticirm. She was not wronir. for vears before tnose two had loved each other dearly. They had been betrothed, and the mar riage day fixed, when the trial came that parted them. Harold Arleigh suddenly found himself fatherless and utterly pen niless; but idleness and luxury had not spoiled his high and noble soirit. He could cheerfully accept years of toil and study and struggling, but he felt that he could not happily and conscientiously wed his wealthy Ermengarde until ha might regain his worldly equality with her. 'The world says unpleasant things of poor men who marry rich women," he had told her. t "Why should we care for what the world has said or may say," the girl re turned impatiently. "AJi I have, be longs to you, Harold dear. Do not leave me." . - Even in that trying moment, with her dear hands clinging upon his arm. her pleading eyes upon him, he never wav ered. 'I must, mv darling." he had answered her firmly, though his heart was heavy with regret and pain. "And remember though I leave you free I shall remain loyal to you ia heart and deed as the only woman I can ever make my wife. I am not seinsh enough to ask you to wait ior me a lew years, my Hirmengarde, What the girl replied she could never distinctly remember, but she knew her words were cruelly Teproachf ul, for she was mad with tbe agony of losing him for even a few brief years. AxiA. he left her with a look on his white beloved faae she would never for get tinul her dying day. She felt that he hod wronged her gen erous affection, insulted her womanly pride and left her with pitiless indiffer ence to be scorned and mocked as a bride deserted by her bridegroom. She had heard of sweethearts who had waited for lovers who had never come; of women who had wasted the best years of their lives upon loves that were false; and her whole soul cried ont in utter, nnforgiv ing anger against him. Neither pardon nor trust wonld she give him. And yet she accepted that freedom he had given her with a sort of defiant misery which all women feel when sloves of a love that neither time, nor anguish nor humilia tion, nor inhuman eruelty even can ever lessen.' And that night at Mrs. Goldsby's soiree they had met again met after long years as strangers. And during those years Harold Ar leigh had won that for which he had toiled so faithfully. He had ?on an honorable position among the most hon orable of men; he was esteemed, as one of the most brilliant members of the le gal fraternity; and by travel and study he had acquired that elegance and dig nity of manner that commands the hom age of society. If Harold Arleigh chose to wed an heiress, the world could not say he married for money and social dis tinction, nor would he feel that he would barter the noble independence of his manhood by such a -union. "- But for him the wide world held but one woman, sweet and dear, and she, it seemed, was no longer attainable. "Is this the Ermengarde I have loved all my life V he asked himself, as he gazed npon her fair, passionless face; the Ermengarde in whose affections and faithfulness I trusted despite her un reasonable anger against oae ?" . And he sighed heavily as he led her to a seat after the waltz was over. "I did not think to meet yon here," he faltered, as the gay groups swept by, leaving them alone. "We meet many people unexpectedly, Mr. Arleigh," she answered in a cold, serene voice. Her cool tranquility almost matldened him. The years that had passed, seamed to bim but the dreary dream of an hour, and their sorrowful parting but of yes terday. - ' He bent over ber until his hot breath burned her cheek. : . ' "Ermengarde,' ho whispered in hoarse and agitated tones, "are you so changed? Have you qiiste forgotten, or do yon really ignore what we were once to ech other?

The dear fellow has a passion for odd and antique relics, and his study is quite an interesting museum, I assure you. Alan, do bring Miss Burroughs, concluded the vivacious little lady. " . ' Presently Ermengarde came a slim, elegant figure, dressed simply in black silk, with a cluster of white roses on her bosom. - "Here is something you would like, Miss Burroughs," observed Mr. Goldsby taking from his box of relics a cariou neoklace of gold with a pendant of exqui site pearls. "If I could only know the history of all these things," murmured the girl, as she glanced oner them a tiny grotesque bronze statuette, a few coins eentnries old, a cup of silver fantastically carve:!, and among them a small toy pistol with a jeweled stock. "This, at least, is not so very ancient," she pursued, taking up the diminutive weapon. " . ae caret ul, . dear; it may not be harmless," remarked her hostess. The wine injunction came too late. As Ermengarde turned it abont scratiau ingly, there was a sharp click and a re port. The dangerous toy dropped at her feet, and she nung up her shivenng hands with a little cry of fright and p&in. "O, what have you done ?" cried Harold, a he saw tho red blow! trickling over her soft neck and staining the white roses on her bosom.
