C. t May 6.—Barney Caulfield jsceived to-day an affidavit from J. Bussell Jones ibont tbe Tourtelotte testimony. Caulfield, jeferring to the affidavit, said that be intended to give Jones and Campbell an opportunity to le beard in reply to Tourtelotte’e and Monson’s leatunony, and kept Tourtelotte here at Govern ment expense for that purpose, but aid not to increase the expenses of the Committee by summoning Jones and Campbell. Caulfield flays that the Committee could not assume that the character of the witnesses was bad, and that the persons interested wore the ones to attempt to prove that it they desired to do so. Caulfield added that he has found nothing whatever of a crimi nal nature in the administration of the Marshal's office, bat that he has found what he calls some iiregoiarities. Caulfield evidently does not in tend to summon either Jones or Campbell. , THE AFFIDAVIT. * Tbt following is the affidavit: gniudStaUilf Avtertea, Farther* District of Illinois, *»..* Joseph B.

Deponent farther states on oath, as aforesaid, that he was Marshal of the northern District of Illinois for the term of eight years, ending in 18C9, during which period he received the aggregate com pensation, as such Marshal, of Sii.oJl.t9, and no more; that the Marshal’s salary during (hat period, as established by law, was s‘A>o per annum, in addition to which he was entitled to retain from the fees arising from the service of pro cess and otherwise an aggregate sum, including the lalary aforesaid, not exceeding $6,000 per «^nnTn | and that be did not receive during any one year of said period any sum in excess of $6,000 as his compensa tion for such year. It is the universal custom of Marshals throughout the country, in order to obtain a reasonable compensation for their services, to employ their deputies, either upon a fixed salary to be paid such deputies, or to allow them such a percentage of the fees earned by them as would secure to the Mar shal the sum allowed him by law, viz.: $6,000 per uinnw Deponent finally states that he is unaware of a sin gle illegal or improper transaction during the whole of his administration of tbe office of Marshal, or one Which will not bear the most searching investigation.

KILBOURN. ANOTHER KNOTTY QUESTION. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune, Waihxnqton, D. C., May 6.—The question of •a appeal in the case of Kilbourn to the Su preae Court of tbe District in general term, involves an interesting question of law, which Is exciting some attention among tbe members of the legal profession in the District. The case is this: After the decision rendered by Chief- Justice Cartter in the matter of the habeas cor poa in the case of Kilbourn, the recusant wit ness, notice for an appeal to the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia in general term given by counsel for the respondent, John I* Thompson, tbe Sergeant-at-Arma of the House, and a demand likewise made that tho tuxna should be prescribed by the Judge upon which the appeal might be bad. Since then, al though the Judiciary Committee of the House had agreed to report a resolution directing the horgeant-at-Arma to prosecute the appeal, it jet been reached in the Housefor action. Aba question growing out of the right of appeal A NOVEL ANT) PERPLEXING ONE, Mcauae of the anomalous character of the Su preme Court of the District, which has both tho powers of a Circuit Court of the United States and a iS E S!

C., May C.—A delegation of past-office officials from Omaha has arrived here to testify before the Stone Committee. The delegation consists of Foray, Special Agent of the Post-Office Department; Hammond, Postal Agent on the Union Pacific Railroad, who have been summoned to testify with regard to 'the weighing of the mails; Boeewater, editor of the Omaha Bee, and Seth Cole, former postal clerk, who are summoned in connection with the in vestigation of the Omaha Post-Office, It ia.a significant comment nDon the Democratic methods of economy, that the post-office nos joit been investigated bv Postmaster General Jewell, and that Postmaster Yost was entirely exonerated.. • . schenck. The Schemes Oommittee is engaged in prepar ing its report, God. Schenck would have fared much better at tbe bands of the Committee if tbe report could have been written before the evidence of the last week was taken'. The evi dence, if, as Scbenck’s counsel sneeringly assert ed it did, consist of dead men's letters, showed very conclusively that Schenck has moat inti mate confidential relations with the brothers Fisher. Tbe last week of the testimony pre sented Park and Schenck in a much more disfa vorablo light than tbe general reports havo made thorn appear. Up to the last week nothin g bad been discovered which seemed to question Gen. Schenck’s voracity, but the later evidence of the Fisher correspondence seemed to show that Scbenck’e connection with tho mining company was UOHE INTOIATE AND CONFIDENTIAL than bo has been willing to admit There is reason to believe that the report in course of preparation will hot he long, and that the Com mittee will brash away many of the irrelevant matters with which interested parties have incumbered tbe issue, and pronounce a spoody verdict, No one who has watched tbe investigation carefully doubts that tho Emma Mine was sold in England on tbe strength of Gen. Scheack’s name, and there is reason to bolievo that tho Committee re port will say as much, It probably will exoner ate Schenck from intentionally guilty acts or knowledge. The testimony taken thus far before the Bout well Mississippi Investigation’Committee shows a terrible state of affairs in Mississippi. From the testimony it has been made clearly to appear that the Democratic minority controls the State to a groat extent. A part of tbe policy of some of tbe Democratic managers has been to enforce the exile of Republican leaders. IMPEACHMENT. LEGAL QUESTIONS. Washington, D. C m May 6. —ln the Senate, consideration of the impeachment artiolee was resumed. Mr. Conklin" submitted the following ques tions to the managers: First. If.two persons guilty of crime in office cease to be officers at the same time, one by removal and the other by resignation, is one, rather than the other, sub ject to impeachment afterwards ? If a distinc tion between the two cases exists, please state it. Second. Is a private citizen liable to im peachment under the Constitution of the United States, if his having previously bold an office distinguishes him iu this respect from other citizens ? Please trace the distinction to a clause of the Constitution, or to the principle in which it is found. Mr. Mitchell, of Oregon, submitted the fol lowing question: The Constitution provides that when the President of Che United States is tried on impeachment, the Chief Justice shall preside. Suppose that a late President were im peached for high crimes aud misdemeanors, committed while ho was President aud present ed at the Bar of the Senate for trial, who would preside, the Chief Justice or the President of the Senate? Owing to the continued indisposition of Man ager Knott, he was granted leave to conclude his argument on Monday. Manager Jenka then read a long argument in favor of the jurisdiction of tho senate, when a recess was taken. Upon reassembling Manager Hoar began bis argument, maintaining tho jurisdiction of the Senate. Mr. Hoar concluded his argument by a perora tion which elicited storms of applause from the galleries, and on motion of Mrl Sherman, the Senate soon afterwards adjourned. CONGRESSIONAL TOPICS. BViT.r. CHANGE. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune, Wasihsoton, D. C., May 6. —1b0 Treasury Department after Monday next will commence to pay Treasury checks in silver to all who de sire it. The officers of the Treasurer's Bureau maintain that there is good authority of law for this, end there is plenty of silver to do it. It is very probable that tbo Frost joint resolu tion authorizing tbo issue of §10,000,000 of silver to relieve tbo small change strin gency will pass the House on Mon day on a suspension of the rales. Payne, of Ohio, who has charge of the bill, thinks that there will not bo more than ten votes against it. The Hawaiian treatv bos been set for consideration on Monday, bat Fer nando Wood, who has charge of iC has arranged with Payne to yield the floor for tho consider ation of the silver resolution, and as Mr. Cox, who is Chairman of the Committee on Banking and Currency, that favorably reported tho reso lution, is also Speaker pro tern, Payne will prob ably got the floor. THE FOSTAL BILL. The House debated tbe Post-Office bill for an* other day. Holman for three hoars discussed the question of transportation and methods of compensation to railroads. He favored the payment per lineal foot of space. There was an animated discussion upon the letter carrier system, and tbe debate was not con cluded. The discussion turned upon the para graph providing that hereafter the free delivery system shall not be established in cities of less than 40.000 inhabitants, and may be continued only in cities with not less than 40,000. The now rule which has given tbe majority so much trouble this session was the less of another acrimonious debate. This proviso is mani festly new legislation, hut under the new' rule it is admissable if it pro vides for retrenchment. Upon the debate Gen. Banks very earnestly maintained that it would not result in retrenchment, and the ex pense of local offices would bo increased. The managers of the hill to make a State of New Mexico have about abandoned their At tempts of bringing tbe bill forward in tbe House this session. Tbe Democrats prefer that final action on tbe bill should bo postponed until af ter the Presidential election. They have given assurances that they will then pass it through the House. OBITUARY. Joseph MacFarland, a well-known correspond ent, died this morning. NOTES AND NEWS. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune, Washington, D, C., May 6. —Speaker Kerr has returned from New York, and goes to Bichmond. He was not benefited by bis trio. His friends say that there is little hope of his recovery, un less be abandons his duties as Speaker for a considerable period. ' WISE MEN DISAGREE. The scientists' engaged to make a report upon the sizing used in the fractional currency are not agreed. The majority of them, however, are of tbe opinion that the sizing is of no prac tical value. FOBGED A SUBPCENA. The Sergeant-at-Arms has discovered the per son who forged the Babphcena by which a wit ness was brought from Now York hero who had not been summoned. He will probably be pre sented to the bar of the House Monday. CONELINP. A further investigation of the story relative to Senator Conkling, which charged him with tbe improper use of his official influence in a patent suit, shows that the story is foundea upon a jealous attack of rival inventors. A. W. Stoughton, a lawyer upon tbe opposite side, publishes a card, in which he states that the charge made against Senator Conkling is entire ly without foundation. TELEGRAPHIC NOTES.

Washington, D. 0., May 6.— Blaine’s friends have been making an estimate of tbe results of tho Republican Conventions. Republican Con ventions have been held in twenty States and three Territories. Tbe remaining sixteen States, with the exceptions of Illinois and Missouri, are the smallest. Conventions already held repre sent 410 votes; those still to be held, 344 votes. Necesaaiy for a nomination at Cincinnati, if the Territories are permitted to vote, as for twelve years they have been, 378. Blaine’s friends claim 135 out of the 378. According to tbe same estimate Morton has 90, Conkling 80, Bristow 40; Blaine has bat 37 instructed dele gates, but claims 106 more uninitraoced. Hor ton has 56 instructed, and claims 84 uninstruoted. THE EE CAPITULATION of this estimate from a Blaine standpoint is : Arkansas; 12 delegates for Senator Morton ; Cal ifornia, 10 delegates for Jewell, 2 for Sristow ; Colorado. 6 delegates claimed for Blaine ; Geor gia, 8 delegates for Conklin?, 7 for Morton, 4 for Bristow, S for Blaine; Indiana, SO delegates for Horton; Maryland, 10 delegates pledged to Blaine; Massachusetts (incomplete), 8 del egates claimed for Bristow, 4 for Blaine, 14 to be. elected; Mississippi, 14 delegates for Morton, 2 for Bristow or Blaine; Nevada, 6 delegates forConkling, the remaining ones of the 10 unknown; Ohio, 44 delegates for Hayes, divided between Blaine and Bristow on tbo sec ond ballot; Oregon, G delegates instructed for Blaine ; Pennsylvania, 58 delegates pledged for Hartranft, all claimed for Blaine on the second choice: Rhode Island, 8 delegates with prefer ences unknown; South Carolina. 9 delegates for Morton, 5 divided between Blaine, Bristow, and Hayes; Texas, 1C delegates claimed by Mor ton ; Vermont, 10 delegates, equal ly divided be tween Blaine and Bnstow; Virginia. 18 dele gates for Blaine, 4 for Morton or Cockling; Wisconsin, 20 delegates for Blaine; Montana, 2 delegates instructed for Blame ; Utah, 2 dele gates claimed for Blaine; Wyoming, 2delegates instructed for Bristow. BTBENQXH Of EACH CANDIDATE. Instructed. Claimed. Total. Gonkling Blaine Briitow Hartranft. Hayes M0rt0n,....., Jewell. Blaine is now endeavoring to have all the delegates instructed. His sentiments are ex pressed by a letter from him, which waa road in the Baltimore Convention yesterday. LETTEB FROM BLAINE. Tbe Baltimore papers make the following reference to Blaine’s request for an Instructed delegation, and cite what purports to be an ex tract from the letter. One report is : John D. Thomas, standing up at his scat in front of tho President, produced aud read to the Convention extracts from a private letter written by Mr. Blaine prior to the assemblage or tho Convention. Mr. Blaine says: “Atonotimo I did not care about tbo matter, but circumstances have arisen which make it desirable that Maryland should stand by me at Cincinnati at this time.” He says tho support of Maryland is of im portance to him. Another report says, when tho reso lution was read instructing delegates to vote for Blaine as long as advisable, Mr. Elisor moved to strike out the discretionary part, and binding the delegation from first to last to Blaine. Mr. Matthews, who spoke at length upon all questions, opposed this. He was unwilling to have the delegation in chains. Mr. O. O. Fulton called Mr. Matthews to him, and handed him a letter. As soon as Mr. Matthews had read It bo said : « I bold a letter in my band, from 2lr. BUlne, asking to have tho delegation instructed. Therefore, in God’s name, let us give the delegation to him.” Mr. John L. Thomas took tbe letter, and said. I will read it; Hr. Blaine says, “A pronounced delegation from Maryland is of the greatest Importance to me at this time.” At this point Mr. Matthews took his hand aud closed the letter up in Mr. Thomas' hand, even as he was reading, and tho balance of this letter is lost to contemporary history. The motion of Mr. Ensor prevailed. Tbe Bristow men claim, however, that the delegation gives no clew to his real strength, and that his voting power in the Convention will not be represented by instructed delegates, hut by the popular pressure behind them. miscellaneous. GEORGIA. Augusta, May 6.—The Democratic delegation is uncommitted, and will vote for any good man that can be elected. Tbe Bepuhlican delegation stands 13 for Morton, 7 for Blame and Bris tow, 2 for Conkhng. KENTUCKY DEMOCRACY.

Burnett presided, and tbe Convection was tbe most or derly that has been held for years, the best men of Louisville taking part. No expression of opinion was publicly proclaimed, hut it is gen erally understood that a majority of tbe dele gates favor the election of S&mnel J. Tiiden, of New York, to the Presidency. HENRY COUNTY, ILL.

Mr. John H. C. Cough presided. Mr. George M. Rogue, of the Committee on Apportionment of Delegates to the County Con vention, reported tbe Grant and Wolcott votes for tbe consideration of the meeting. Mr. John Lyle King moved that tho apportion ment be based on the Wolcott vote, which would give the city 141 and the county 43 delegates. Col. Payne offered the following as a sub stitute : Buoived, That the Chairman of this Committee be and Is hereby instructed to Immediately call a Repub lican County Convention to assemble in the City of Chicago May 20,187 G, at the hour of 2p. nu, to ehooso eighty delegates from Cook County to the Republican Scats Convention. That the primaries be held in the several wards and towns Thursday, May 18, and that each ward and town be entitle to send one delegate for each 200 Republican votes, and one additional del egate for each fractional number of Republican votes over 100 as such ward or towns cast for A. Wolcott In 1875 provided that each ward and tows shall be enti tled to send to said Convention at least tbe same num ber of that It sent to tne last County Conven tion. The substitute was adopted. On motion, tbe question of securing a hall in vUdAto hold Convention v» referred to the following - Committee: Ijesars. Clough, SalshurTi and Mull in. The hour for the city primaries was fixed at from 4 to 7 o’clock in tbe evening of Thursday tbe 18tb inst. With the exception of Evanston. Lake, Hyde Park, and Cicero, tbe time for the primaries m tbe county towns was fixed at from 4to6p. m. Evanston was afterwards fixed at 7:80 to 9p, m.; Norwood Pork, sto 8; Lake, 4 to 7. . On motion, gentlemen from the different wards were requested to report judges and places for holding tbe primaries at the next meeting. Tho meeting then adjourned to Tuesday after noon at 4 o’clock. The First Ward Republican Club held a meet ing in the Sherman-House club-room lost even ing. Twenty-five members were present, and L. L. Coburn presided, and Georgo T. Graham acted as Secretary. Simeon W, King was appointed a Committee to coll on membere.of the other Republican Glob, and other good citizens in tho ward, and invite them to join. A reorganization of tbe Club was effected by the election of tbe following officers: President, L. L. Coburn. Vice Presidents: First, Abner Taylor; Second, Enoch Howard; Third, J. H.

Cleveland, J. J. Magill. The President and Abner Taylor were elected as delegates to tbe Grand Council. Tho Club adjourned to meet on the 13th inst. A meeting of tbe Republican Club of tbe Thirteenth Ward was held at Benz’s Hall last evening, tbe object being to have an informal talk about the coming State and county canvass, and to arrange for electing delegates to tbe County Convention. In tbo discussion, the Gubernatorial question was first, and tbe sense of tbe Club was that either Culiom or Beveridge would bo the nominee, and that the former was tbo stronger of the two. Very little was said about tbe rest of tbe State ticket, except the office of Treasurer, which was conceded to the Germans and claimed for ibis county. On tbe county ticket, Gen. Mann appeared to be the candidate for Sheriff, Sidney Smith 'the choice for State’s-Attoroey, and nearly anybody except tbe present incumbents for County Com missioners. The only ebusiness transacted by tbo Club was the appointment of G. T. Gould, P. S. Baird. J. P. Emmert, B. P. Howard. B. B. Hil dreth, Louis Wolfe, and A. P. Bradley as a com mittee to nominate names for delegates to the County Convection, to report at a meeting to be held at tbo same place a week hence.

The Committee appointed to suggest names for delegates to the County Convention announced that next Saturday evening they will report the names of twenty-six gentlemen, ten of whom will be chosen and recommended to the voters at the primaries. The meeting then adjourned. THE PRIMARY ELECTION SYSTEM. THE SOESTITTnOK OP WARD CLUBS* To the Editor of The Chicago lYibune • Chicago. May 6. —The last Republican Con vention appointed a committee to tako into con sideration tho question of primary elections, and to report a plan in lien thereof. That the old primary election boa in our groat cities be came a fraud and a farce, no intelligent man doubts. Whenever tho office to bo filled has. a largo income attached, -whether as salary or omoluonts of various kinds, then the persona who enter the hats for such offices will use all tho machinery, honest or dishonest, known to party managers. Honest men in tho main are precluded from entering into such a contest on account of the dishonorable means used to obtain a nomination. It is notorious, and needs only to be men tioned, that the dishonorable of both parties as sist each other in tho primary elections, and oftentimes ouo political party controls both political conventions. There is a large number of voters in a great city that will vote for the party that offers tbe greatest inducement in tho way of whisky, beer, or half-dollars. f It would seem that there should be no one to day who would dare advocate tho primary elec tion system in a great city. What is to tako its place? Wo answer without hesitation,- “the ward club.” This institution in Chicago has within six months developed a worth and a power in politics heretofore unknown. We speak. . with«. reference to tho Republican Clubs. They admit to membership every Re publican, without charge, and those who neglect or refuse to become members are the same per sons who cannot bo induced to take any interest even in a primary election, and are willing to leave tbe management or control of the party to others. The Club consolidates tbe workingmen of tbe party, and a plan is developed; they meet each other face to face, they become acquainted, and tbeir acts, whatever they may be, will have in them some intelligence. The club of each ward .will possess the intelligence of the party, and those who arb not Republicans cannot control these clubs in the interest of the opposite party. The man who is to be nominated for Alderman is before them, and is not an invisible and un known quantity. The persons to be named as delegates to a city or county convention are present, and aro known to the Club. Their in telligence and their honesty will bo known to all. Heretofore, under the'old primary syateoi, two or throe persons in each ward who had the machine in their bands would come together, nominate a ticket of delegates, usually two tickets, either of which the machine was willing to have elected, and would then call upon their party, or both parties, to come forward and vote for them. Under the Club system no such fraud can be perpetrated. The Glob is too large to be con trolled by tbe machine, and necessarily the best men will be selected for delegates. Tbe vast majority of those composing tbe Club desire no office, and have no Interest in the matter except to see the best moo brought forward. Tbe Club method is tbe overthrow of tbe machine politician. It has proved to be bo id tbe Eighteenth Ward, in tbe First, Second, Third, and Fourth Wards in this city, as well as in many others. Tbe Clnbs are influential in themselves, and do not fear tbe party lash, and if a man bo nominated for an office who is objectionable, the power and tho intlnence of tho Clnb is such that, quietly and without party revolution, such person is easily defeated. 1 think that snch a phenomenon in party politics was never before seen in Chicago asthe defeat of Mr. Lipe. Oat of 28,000 Repub lican votes cast, 10,000 were cast against him. It was done by the intelligent work of the Club, and in opposition to tbe party machine. The Clnb gives an opportunity for tho development of patriotism and honesty rather than more partyism. While it works for party, that la only a secondary consideration; it is only a method of reaching what the voters desire, and not tbe end to be constantly sought. A proper City Government la of much more consequence to tho average voter than is the success of his party. It will be found that every man in a good office, from United States Senator down, who has obtained such office without merit on his part, will be in favor of tho old primary election system. It is the most loved piece of machinery, by all of them, ever invented. They will never consent that it be overthrown. Rat the people do not like it. They desire something that will produce statesmen and honest men in office, in stead of blowing politicians, defaulters, and whisky-thieves. I confidently assort that it is only by means of the Club, which should be constantly kept alive and ready for action, that reform inside of a political party can be accomplished. The politician by profession will be unable to manipu late it, and his appointees to office aro not sufficient in number to control it. An Acting Governor cannot write a personal letter, upon Government paper, postage paid by the State, to each of the 200 or 800 members of tbe Ward Clnb. Nor can be personally visit them. It will be useless for him to seek out the machine boys, for he finds them all ignored. It was by means of this Club alone that the City of Chicago was enabled, at Us last election, to select tbe best men ever sent to its Council. And why should not tbe vote for Aldermen or delegates be taken in tbe open meeting of the Club, instead of being taken at a primary elec tion ? The one'vote mast be honest.

The Sad Mishap of a Theatrical Manager. An Audience with the Pope—Ths Household of the . Grand lurk. A MANAGER'S MISHAP. ; A cmrious incident baa. just been recorded bero (says the Paris correspondent of the Now York Times), the hero of it being one of our confreres of the press, 11. Hjpolite Nazet, late editor of tbe Gaulois. 'When the new Theatre Taitbout was organized he was taken as Secre tary, owing to his familiarity with tbe critics and with tbe official world entitled to share in tbe distribation of gratuitous tickets, or billets de faveur, as they say here. Owing to some difficulties in tbe management, the direction of tho theatre was ultimately confided to 21. Nazet. Ho began under very auspicious circumstances. Bo bad u La Petite Comtesse ” offered to him. tbe mu sic being b? Eecndier, the words by Bicci, one of tho authors of *‘Crispin© ola Comare.** Suc cess appeared certain, and our confrere gave up tbe pen be bad so long wielded with honor and devoted himself to bis new profession. He en gaged some of tbe best artistes, bad tbe piece mounted in fine style, and when all was ready issued bis tickets for tbe premiere representa tion. At night he appeared in all bio glory, in swallow-tail and white cravat, prepared to receive bis colleagues, with whom be is a general favorite. But not a journalist ap peared. None of tbe critics came,but in their places bo saw a lot of persons wbo did not look like tho people ordinarily convoked to these re cherche first representations. Nazet was greatly chagrined, and thought for the moment that bia confreres bod played him a trick by sending their servants in tbeir places, as one of tbe American Ministers was reported to have done a few years ago when tbe Minister of Beam-Arts sent him a box, 'On- inquiry the—next- day, Nazet found that not one of the tickets bad reached tbe person to whom it was direct ed. Tbe mystery was cleared up the other day in the Police Court. Tbe tickets were sent out by tbe usual messenger of tho theatre. It happened to be election-day. and be was an elector. There would seem to be nothing equal to voting for making men thirsty, and wnen tbe messenger bod bravely performed his'civic duties be retired •to tbe nearest moo-scop with bis coreligionnaires ic politics to drink tbo success of bis candidate. One glass demands another, and then another, and in the end tbe messenger got into such fine humor that be distributed all tbe press tickets among his friends of the wine-shop. Such a lot as appeared in tbe first boxes on the opening night was never seen before. In court Nazet stated that this escapade had cost him over 20,000 francs, for there is nothing like tbe first tam-tam of tbe critics to make tbe success of a piece; no after talk can repair tbe loss of that. Tbe messenger was very bumble and confessed his fault. Or rather, be confessed to the fact, but stated that it was not bis fault, but the fault of tbe wine be had taken so copiously. Tbe Judge said there might be differences of opinion upon this point, but he could bava the benefit of any doubts. So far as tbe wine was concerned, how ever, the Court would show itself severe, and condemn it to confinement with bard labor for two months. As the container could not be easily separated from tbe contained, tbe festive messenger had to go to prison as an accomplice; Poor Nazet will never get over tbe chagrin caused by tbia incident at tbe very beginning of bis career as a director. Nevertheless bis piece has succeeded very well, and visitors to Paris can pass a very agreeable evening with M. Nazet and his “Petite Comtesse.” IN THE POPE’S AUDIENCE-ROOM. Thomas Bailey Aldrich, In the May Atlantic, thus describes a “Visit to a Certain Old Gentle* men”: The monotonous hum of conversation ceased abruptly, the two sections of the wide door I have mentioned were thrown open, and the Pope, surrounded by his Cardinals and a number of foreign Princes, entered. The occu pants of the two long settees rose, and then, as if thoy wero automata worked by tho £ame tyrannical wire, sunk simultaneously into an attitude of devotion. Por an instant I was seized with a desperate desire not to kneel. There is something iu an American knee, when it is rightly constructed, that makes it an awkward thing to kneol with before any man boro of woman. Perhaps, if the choice were left one, either to prostrate one's self before a certain person or to be shot, one might make a pomt of it, —and bo shot. But that was not tho alternative in the present case. If I had failed to follow the immemorial custom I would not have had the honor of a fusillade, but would have been igndmioioasly led away by one of those highly-colored Swiss guards, and, in my dress suit, would havo presented to the general stare the appearance of a pretentious ace of spades being wiped out by a gay right bower. Such a humiliation. wag not to bo thought of! So, wishing myself safely back amid the cruder civilization of the New World, and with a mental protest, accompanied by a loftly compassion for tho weakness and cow ardice of human kind,' 1 slid softly down with tho rest of the miserable I was in the very act, when I was chilled to tEb marrow by catching a sidelong glimpse of my benign old gentleman placidly leaning back in his seat, his hands folded over his well-filled waistcoat, and that same benevolent smile petrified on bis countenance. He was fast asleep. Immediately a tall, cadaverous person in a scant, funereal garment emerged from some where, and touched the sleeper on the shoulder. The old gentleman unclosed his eyes slowly and with difficulty, aud was so far from taking in the situation that he made a gesture as if to shake hands with the tall, cadaverous person. Tnen it all Hashed upon the dear old boy, and ho dropped to his knees with so comical and despairing an air of contrition that the presence of 40.000 Popes would not .have prevented me from laughing. Another discomposing incident occurred at this juncture. Two removes below me was a smooth-faced Gorman of gigantic stature; ha must have been 6 or 7 inches over 6 feet in height, but so absurdly abort between the knee cap and ankle that as he knelt he towered head and shoulders above us all, resembling a great, overgrown school-boy, standing up as straight as he could. It was so he impressed one of the ghostly attendants, who advanced quickly to wards him with the evident purpose of request ing him to kneel. Discovering his error just in time, the reverend father retreated much abashed. All ovos were now turned toward the Pope and his suite, and this trifling episode passed unnoticed save by two or three individuals in the immediate neighborhood, who succeeded in swallowing their smiles, but did not dare glance at each other afterwards. The Pope advanced to the centre of the upper end of the room, lean ing heavily on bis ivory-handled, cane, the Princes in black and tho Cardinals in scarlet standing behind him in picturesque groups, like the chorns in an opera. Indeed, it was all like a scene on the stage. THE GRAND TURK’S HOUSEHOLD. The Economists Francois (a Paris paper), in an article on the Saltan of Turkey’* household, says: “The Grand Marshal is the head faoo-l tionary of the palace. He has the supervision f and responsibility of all that passes in the selambike. the part of the palace where the Saltan spends the day, takes his meals, and re ceives visitors. The post is at present vacant. The salary is variable. Ferid Pasha, the last bolder, bad 276,000 franca a year, with rations repre renting 57,000 francs. The Chamberlains are not so much administrators as domestics, paying the Saltan all the attention devolving on valets de ebambre in Europe. * He treats them harshly. When in an ill humor he insnlts them, strikes them, drives ; them from tbe palace for the most frivolous reasons. One a few seconds behind in bringing his master bis praying carpet was sent into the palace band. Ha has no turn for music, and is vegetating in second-rate pdsts. The office of Chamberlain is, nevertheless, much coveted, its dis advantages being compensated by large profits. The highest personages seek their friendship in the hope of furthering their am bitions views. These services are handsomely re warded. The Chamberlains announce their ap pointment to the Grand Yizier, the Ministers, and Governors. Custom requires each of these personages to give tbe bearer of good tidings from ll,ooof. to 22,000 f« as a present. The nameroos concessions to the Viceroy of Egypt have always been announced to him by the Chamberlains, who have received 340,- OOOf., 460.000f M 575,000f M and even 690,000 f. Tbe number of Chamberlains varies according to the Saltan’s caprice. Usually there are seven or eight, but at present only five. The Chief Chamberlain baa 82,800 f. a year, a palace rent free, equivalent to 54,600 f» There are I five secretaries.- The Chief of them reads Ito the Sultan the daily report pre pared by a special office, composed of young men of the first Mussulman families. To him the Grand Yizior and other high faoctionariea address the communications intended to come under the eye of their master, who is at each a distance from common' mortals that nobody wonld ever presume to address directly to him any official or other communication. The Jive secretaries and four writers cost 248,i00f. . . . Por the moment the post of Palace Treasurer is a real sinecure. For sev eral months neither employes nor tradesmen have been paid, all the available money being reserved for the Sultan. The Treasurer’s salary is 41,000 f., with rations 11,040f M and four secretaries, 16.560 f. *An astrologer bos 13,300 f. His duty is is consult the moon and stars. He - sets to work when the Saltan is nnwell or is to make a journey. _ His oracles are listened to with respect and his di rections are followed. His influence is great in the palace and out of doors. The chief barber, who knows bow to bold his tongue,—no slight merit, especially in Turkey,—not uttering a word when cutting his master’s beard and bair, baa 5,520 f. The Saltan does not drink coffee, but enstom requires it to be served to everybody re pairing to the Palace on business. The chief cafetier lias 5,520 f., his six assistants 16.560 f.. and the coffee costs 69,000 f. a year. The Mus sulmans, after their meals, have the excellent habit of rinsing the month and washing the hands with perfumed soap. This department, with its chief and six assistants, costs 18,768 f. per annum. LOST HIS BEST CUSTOMER. A wealthy bachelor (says a Paris letter), who brekfaste every morning in one of the most fash ionable restaurants of the Boulevard des Italians, la, or rather was, very attentively served .by a waiter, whose palm he generally crosaed,and never with tbe viler metal. Of course the wealthy bachelor always bad tbe same seat, a scat by a window looking on tbo ever-ani mated boulevard, hot plates, dishes served promptly, but not too fast; in fine. Benedict bad an excellent servant. But during the last week, Benedict bad been unable to get this excellent servant; another servant bangs around him. and tries bis best to supply all his wants ; still tbe new face is not tbe old face, and what annoys Benedict most is, that lie occasionally catches glimpses of his old servant, who gives him most sorrowful glances. Bene dict has examined the matter, and has discover ed that his old servant is addicted to gambJln?, One evening, having lost all bis money, he staked bis beat customer—Benedict—and lost him.
