C., May 14.—Can wo not take from the New Testament a cognomen for this Capital, and call it "Golgotha, which Is, being Interpreted, The Place of a Skull." What other city could hnvo furnished upwards of 9,000 dead-heads to attend the opening exer cises of the Centennial I And who, besides tho complaisant Col. Totn Scott, would have fur nished free transportation for this noble array, taking them by a circuitous route through tho rural districts of Pennsylvania, because tho hard-hearted Boston Directors of the Baltimore /c Philadelphia Road refused to "pass" tho free trains? Without this costly liberality, which enabled eu many to visit Philadelphia AVofMrcc, the grand opening ceremonies would have been deprived of the presence of nearly oil of our Congressional Solons, with their retinue of hundreds of newspaper dead-beats, who were out In all their glory and shame. BRAZEN-FACED WOMEN AND MENDICANT MSN, who had never been known to write a lino for publication, swarmed by the hundreds around Scott’s agents, clamoring for the "open scsrufio ” to the free trains of cars. The scml-ltftmthly correspondent of the Scowhcgan OUidiator, the fair writer of society-letters for the Suit Luke Ladle*' Mirror, the compiler of election-statist lea for the Duluth Democratic Clarion , ami the Sen* ate reporter of the Pensacola DaUaiHum of Lib erty, with scores of other representatives of equally well-known Journals, demanded and re ceived the coveted blffc of pu.-li-hoanL The man who sells stole doughnuts and sour beer In the basement of the Capitol was on hand; nor were alotof prettyTreosury elerkesses, who frank the speeches of the Representatives who keep them in office, forgotten. Of course, the onuses of Col. Tom Scott were In every mouth; and It now remains tube seen whether, next winter, when the elections are over, he will he gratefully remembered by the Congressmen and corre spondents aforesaid, and his Southern Pacific bill Jiut through with commendable haste. If bo loos not receive his desired legislation, after this lavish generosity, ho will have good reason for denouncing those who rode on his trains os nn ungrateful set. The propriety of this Con gressional demand for expensive courtesy on Obi. Scott, and of the acceptance of It, is for Public Opinion to decide. That It wffs unblush ingly demanded and accepted, is a mutter of record. . THE DEAD-HEAD EXCURSIONISTS were a Jovial set on their way to Phlladplphla,* Gen. Farnsworth, of Illinois, was taken out on tho car-platform at several Pennsylvania stop ping-places, and Introduced as Dbm Pedro, lo the great delight of the assembled yeomen Those who had ‘‘worn the gray "joined heartily In tho chorus to "John Brown's Body;” while those who had “worn tho blue” vocally wished themselves “Away Down South, In Dixie”! Lum-h-baskets mid whisky-bottles were generously passed around, and every one appeared to enjoy tho trip, except tho lion. John Adams Hyman, of the Second North Carolina District, to whom a Conductor said: “ You must go forward into the smoking-car. Wc don’t allow no niggers In the Pullmans I” Fortunately, the brother-mem bers of Urn dusky Congressman intervened, and tlio Conductor retreated to his small closet to study the Civil-Rights bilk 1 don’t propose to attempt a description of the discomforts, extortions, and fatigues which this distinguished party experienced at the Cen tennial Show, or of the hungry, tired, and cross (date of mind in which they returned. Just let Gen. Hawley cornu here again for an appropria tion but then it was so kind iu Col. Scott to pass the party to Philadelphia and back. THE PRESIDENTIAL CALDRONS arc boiling, and bubbling, and steaming. Not a day passes but that some rumor, or scandal, or suspicion is thrown In, and stirred up, that some candidate may be injured, aud consequently some other candidate benefited. Thu last sen sation is the blackballing of Mr. Bristow at tho Union League Club, iu New York, by a snobbish young sugar-refiner, to avenge a Treasury de cision against him. To-morrow Mr. Riddle’s letter to Mr. Blaine Is to appear: ami by Tues day there will be something to the disadvantage of Mr. Coukllng, I dare suy. Those who aro keeping slates of the relative chances of thu Republican candidates think that Mr. Conkllng’s prospects of leading on tho second ballot are good, especially if—as Is intimated— the Morion strength Is turned over to him. But lirivate citizens who como here from oil parts of he Union agree that, amoug the pcoplulu their respective localities, HRISTOW* IS GAINING STRENGTH, with hero and there a crystallization which will tell at Cindimutl. It is also certain that the iullucncff’of thu Administration Is being exerted against Bristow, and In furor of the man who, In each locality, is tho leading anti-Bristow can didate. Tims, in Boston the Custom-Home people arc for Blaine, in New Y’ork they are for Coukllng, aud lu the Southern cities they aro for .Morton. Wo liavo liad a visit from Col. Orowulow, of Tennessee, who says that Ids father, the ex- Governor and cx-Senatur. butter known os Par son Brovmlow, will be a delegate to the Repub lican Convention at Cliiclmiull, and WILL Dtf ALL HE CAN FOR MORTON. He has lived to*sce his old opponent, Andy Johnson, In his grave; and he Mllu cherishes un relenting hostility to the Democratic party. Ho Is missed from the Senate, where he usea to ait helpless for hours, after having Ixscn curried like a child lo his curulo choir, unable to raise n glasa of water to his lips, or to vote audibly. Hut his smooth, small. Intelligent features were calm and Inflexible, while the concentrated gaze of his dear eyes displayed his absolute iron will. No living American has waged such vindictive and vituperative political warfare, uml forgiveness Is to him unknown, ua he tramples relentlessly aud remorselessly upon a prostrate foe. TUB DEMOCRATIC WIRE-PULLERS are even more at ecu than the Republican managers, and there ore bitter feuds among tho Congressional supporters uf the rival candidates. TBdeu's friends made a spurt for him a week or so ago, aud an unnuuncumcut that bu was anxious to .donate one million dollars to tho vamp-cheat, sltould lie bo nominated, rallied quite u horde of camp-followers to hi* supjKtrt. Indeed, he has good nrosjiecu of securing the Maryland delegation tost. Louis, to the disgust of Senator I'inckncy Whyte, who hod wanted & Western candidate fur President, with himself os tho Democratic candidate for Vice-President. Hv an accident, Whyte unearthed that marplot, Montgomery Blair, as having instigated Tflden articles In distant newspapers, that they might be copied lu Baltimore os “public opinion.” Maryland politicians, of all parties, have become heartily sick of the Blairs, father and son, with their intrigues and schemes, and Montgomery finds himsdf hoisted with hia own petard.

Oraml-Mastcr John 11, Hopkins, who {shore ns the representative from the Pittsburg District of Pennsylvania, has selected Washington Com mander}*, No. 1, os his escort and body-guard at the Grand Encampment of Knights Templar. They will go 100 strong, with the full Marine Band, and wilt lie In admirable drill. This Coiife nmndcry was organised Id 1825, It has conferred the orders of Knighthood on 840 Royal-Arch Masons, and It has on 1U rolls over SIX) mem- Iters. Columbia Commnndery, No. 2, will also visit Philadelphia during tho Grand Encampment, and expects to present ns line an appearance as it did in 1871 at Baltimore, when it won the prize for excellence In drill. Eleven members of the present Congress nro Knights Templar, sixteen aro Royal-Arch Ma sons, and upwards of thirty aro .Master-Masons.

Among them aro Kadi, n brother of Tom Ochil tree, and credited with the fastest I lino for one mile on record; Spindrift, the best son of Bon nie Scotland now on the turf; Tom O’Neill, a full brother of London; and Other nags of note. On Tuesday next there will be a sice plo-chusc, over a course which will test tho strength of the bdrses and the courage of their riders. ~. SOCIETY-MOVEMENTS. The presence of the Diplomatic Corps and others at Philadelphia, during tho past week, has made tho city rather dull; but tho young people hare enjoyed several strawberry-feasts, at which there Is carpet-dancing, with the lus cious (terries and ico-cream for refreshments. The SMtii Inst. Is the birthday of Quo 1 beg pardon, the Empress Victoria’s birthday, mm there aro rumors that Sir Edward Thornton in tends to give n ball at tho British Legation, to which the Foreign Commissioners at Philadel phia will bo invited. Dom Pedro was not at all acceptable to the society people here, who didn’t fancy Ids uncer emonious way of trotting about while here. Tho Brazilian Minister, who had expected to havo had tho management of a grand reception at the Arlington'Hotel, is not happy; out tho Empress may eomo hero and aUmo for her hus band’s Incivility by tier observance of etiquette. Speaking of tho Empress, there has been some curiosity manifested hero to know why sho was selected to open TUB WOMAN’S CENTENNIAL PAVILION, when Mrs. Grant was ou tho ground. It was probably a freak of Mrs. Gillespie, tho Arch- Tycoon of tho Woman’s Centennial Committee, wlio is tho only absolute ruler on tho Centennial grounds. Even tho mighty Direetor-Goncral Gushom has to succumb to tho imperious nod with which sho shakes her head disapprovingly, her cup-frills vibrating in unison with her rapid utterances. Joe Hawley retires, tho eloquence of Dr. Loring is hushed, and the Finance Committee open their money-bags for her use.* Nevertheless, sho should have in vited Mrs. Grant to open the performances in tho Woman's Pavilion. EXIT FITZHUOn. The gallant Doorkeeper of the House, who so glowingly portrayed his triumphant condi tion to u friend in Texas, wishes that he had never been taught how to write. A few weeks since, hu was a “biger man than old Grant.” with mem iters imploring olllces from him: hut now lie Is a humble, crest-fallen supplicant fur con tinuance in Ids posit ion. He is another exem pllticalion of the old proverb. “Set a beggar on horseback, and he'll ride to the dickens.” AMUSEMENTS. Those hard-worklngpcoplc, the Voltes family, havo drawn good houses here during tho week; hut next week both tlto theatres wilt bo closed. On tho £M, iMitw Mary Anderson is to make her first appearance here, at thu National. An at tempt has been made lo produce os a prodigy a clever little chap named Shannon: hut It was “ too thin,” although the boy might please old maid aunts by mounting a chair,'and declaim ing, “ You’d scarce, expect onu of my ago to speak lu public on the Htage.” Kaconteuil THE lIECOHD. SENATE. Washington, May 19.—1 n tho Senate, after thu introduction and reference of several bills, aud thu presentation of a number of petitions, legislative business was suspended, and tho Sunatc resumed consideration of the articles of Impeachment against William 11. Belknap, late Secretary of War, with dosed doors. At 4:45 the doors were reopened, and legis lative business resumed. The Choir laid before the Senate a communi cation from the Secretary of the Treasury, In dosing a report of the Director of the Mint, in answer to a Senate resolution showing tho an nual product of gold and sliver In the United Btales from lH4r» To 1875, Inclusive, and an coll niato of the product of other countries.

Wonderful Baby-Tender* to Bo Seen in tho Women’s Pavilion* YKSTKUIIAY. ACBNTRNNIAL SAPB. Special IhijHiteb to the Tribune, Philadelphia, May 10.—Tlie latqst Centen nial novelty comes from New York, mid It Is In the shape of an Iron sale, and designed to con tain memorial articles for tho edification of tho next generation. The safe will contain photo graphs and autographs of all the prominent officeholders in the country, and will bo locked up on the Diet day of December, not to bo open ed for n century. The closing up of tho reposi tory will be performed with appropriate cere monies by President Grant. It will then bo conveyed to Washington and placed under the rotunda of the Capitol. GOOD ATTENDANCE. The attendance to-day at the Exposition was larger, owing to the pleasant weather. There were about 80,000 visitors. A LITTLE SllAimr. The foreign Commissioners have become dis gusted at tiio slowness of tho Centennial Com mission In appointing tho foreign Jurors. These jtfrors, it should bo stated, ore.nomlnated by their respective Governments, but, us they draw pay from tho United Slates for their services, they have to bo continued ns otllcinls by the United States Commission. Many of them nro hen; m>w, but have received ho official notifica tion as yet of their confirmation. Tho foreign Commissioners held nn indignation meeting this afternoon In the British Government Build ing, and talked very strongly about the shabby way in which their Jurors have boon treated. CENTENNIAL JOTTINGS. DEADHEADS AND REPEATERS —TUB CENTEN NIAL GUARDS AND TltßlU LAUOItS—THE WOM EN’S PAVILION—-WHAT ONE SEES TIIP.RU— FINE WORK OP VARIOUS KINDS. Special Correspondence r\f The Tribune, Philadelphia, May Hl.—The Centennial Commission Ims found a new mare’s neat. It has discovered that a great many persons bolti ng posses have been using them to get! their friends Into the grounds without the proji cr contribution of 50 cents at the gales. Tills was particularly the case on the opening day, when passes were only looked at, and not punched or otherwise marked. The holder would go through the gates; then he would retire to a previously arranged spot In Ilia fence, mid pass his tick et through one of the numerous crevices, where his friend outside would get it. The friend would enter as boldly ns n donkey mUrehlng to a haystack; then, by tho same pro cess, the friend’s friend would enter; then tho friend’s friend’s friend, and so on up to the tenth or twentieth multiplication of that much abused and abusing word. The money Hint should have gono into tho Centennial treasury’ was then expended In congratulatory beer or other drinks, ami tho cause of Immoral ity was iu every way advanced. IT 18 WUONO TO CHEAT (unless you can honestly make something by so doing), and it is doubly wrong to waste the suit stance thus obtained In riotous living. If people will defraud, let'thcm give the proceeds thereof to tho church, tho missionary cause, or the poor, or, at any rate, make a fair “divvy” with those charitable enterprises. Since tho opening day, It has nyt been so easy to get ahead of the gate-keepers as on the great occa sion; but still there is n way of doing It. Every complimentary ticket Is now punched at the gates, so that it cannot hu'used again tho same day. But, If the holder wants to go out and return again, he can obtain u cheek at tho gates, and he can do this several times In the day. Now, there have been exhibitors and oth ers who have secured passes, and have them slipped away without going outside. Tho check would be pushed through a crevices in the fence, and the waiting friend would secure It and enter. In many places there Is much more crcvlec than fence, so that the swindle Is not at all difficult. The Commis sion thinks that several thousands of dollars which should he in their coffers have thus been diverted from their proper course, end they have taken means lo stop tho evil. They now require u muu to go outside when he has obtained his cheek, and then hu may do with It whatever ho like# 1 . The evil can not be altogether stopped, for tho reason that a man going outsldo early In tho afternoon, with out the intention of returning, may take a check, and then give It away, or sell it u reduced price. Of course we will all admit that It Is wrong to do this, but human nature Isn't very high-toned any way, and the limes were hard. There are many men In this world, ami many who have gone to other worlds, who delight Iu “cheek ing” their way through the'door of a theatre, circus, or lecture before the Y. M. C. A., and then spending the money for something to put Into their mouths to steal away their brains Into some other act of dishonesty. • TUB OBNTBNNIAI. GUARDS, os tho special policemen ore called, are a fine lot of incapable*. They were selected with consid erable cure, and were uniformed at Centennial expense, and they receive Id a day each for their services. They huvu about us much idea of discipline as u troop of wild monkeys in Algeria, and are gloriously Inefficient. Borne of them are civil, and .some are surly; they are Improving somewhat in this respect, hut there is any quantity of chance remaining for progress. They have beats like policemen (some of them are worse beats than policemen), and arc expected to walk back and forth after thu old-fusliloncd custom, lu theory, this is well; the practice is, that two them, meeting at the end of their routes, will stop ana talk an hour or ed, without so much us troubling themselves about their business. If there Is a log or box at this meeting of the waters, it Is apt to prolong tho Interview, us the two heroes prefer sitting to 1 standing, and they can beat the best here ever known.ut sitting. Do not suppose that all these men are worthless, as there arc some good ones among them. But tho whole force, us a force, is Incompetent and without disci pline. They aro far behind thu special police at thu Vienna Exposition, or any other special police iu Europe. Thu fact U, thu class from which such a force is recruited has not thu Instinctive discipline about It that you would find In the aanfu class In Europe. Tho free and Independent air of thu Amer ican docs not give the material fur a ready-made army or pullce-sqaiul, and tho work of discipline Is more difficult. But they arc the best lu the world when thor oughly trained to their duties, and I supposes the Centennial Guards may be all right by the time our Exhibition oomes to an end. THE WOMEN’S DEPARTMENT. I devoted a part of yesterday afternoon lo a visit to tho Women's I’avßiou. You know* all about tho building, as It has been fepoutodly ihiscribwl and represented by Illustration. Like all other ports of thu, Exhibition, It Is not yet ready. There are many vacant spaces that stare ut you, and there arc many show-eases whoso principal at tractions arc tho nothingness of their Interior. Workmen aro busy in several localities, and thu ladles in charge of thu jdaco are harrying about in an Indefinite sort of way, us though they liavu more uu their'hands than they cun utlasd to conveniently. Slate and national lines arc not drawn here very dulluitely.thuughthere has been uu attempt to pul things from certain countries where they tan be scon together. 1 hud ex pected much—perhaps too much— of tho Wom en’s I’uvillon; and so I was disappointed; but, nevertheless, 1 am glvl to say that the women have done a great deal, and luoileunuxccedlngly creditable display. They promise to have much more when all their goods are in, and 1 may have something more to say of them In a week or two. In the show-cases, ut preform, there U a great deal Of loco and embroidery,— the kind of work that has been the province of feminine Ungers from lime Immemorial. This work comes from all coun tries. ‘and from women In all ranks of life; much of It is from those who wrought fur pas time, but much mure, and the brat part of It, is from women wLokc work Is their means ut livelihood. Threw of the Kit f’llsh Princesses— Ifcatrieu, Alice, oral Helenur— imve contributed to the Exhibition; their work, good enough iu Its way, Is nothing extraordi nary, and I presume thu Royal ladles cannot afford tho lima necessary \u a ttiorangh knowl edge of the uses of tho needle. The Belgian laces are the beat, os they come from profes sional w orkers; but there are some specimens of American work that give a thorp competition to Utc Brussel* product, “We have auiueUdug bare from run uaw os py tuv qubew,” MIS. QoX*£voyc# to fi£ Qhh£ a* *hV. led me ts a casd contaihlng siomo twenty-five Or thirty' etchings inado by Victoria Regina. Most of those that I saw were good ; n few would bo open to criticism nn the score of drawing, ami some of them ou Mint of shading. But we don’t often get any thing of tlds sort from Royal albums, and It won’t do to be too particular. Ons Is reminded of Dr. Johnson’s remark about the dog that danced on Ids him! legs, that It was a veir poor sott of dancing, mid you wondered, not that the beast danced badly, but that 1m danced at all. But please don’t, semi tv copy of thin paper to the QilCen, or I may never he Invited to dine at Buckingham Palace or spend a week at Bal moral. There Is a fine lot of artificial flowers from Brazil,-—some of them made of feathers, like tho Honors In the Brazilian Department in tho Main Building. Cnnadn/cnds some painted velvets that look very pretty, and cannot be dis tinguished from embroidery when vim are a few steps away, Sweden sends some pretty work In flsh-senlcs and bones; and It also sends figures of a group of peasants, which never falls to attract a crowd of spectators. A young man Is engaged in pulling a flower to pfcces, to as certain whether his girl loves him or not. Bhc is looking over his shonldtYs, quite ns anxious, probably, as be Is, to know wbat the flower will say. In tho Japanese show-ease there are some fans and fire-screens, unit also some embroidered gar ments of various kinds. There are also sumo specimens of painting after the Oriental style, but none of theln are more remarkable than the works of art In the Japanese section in the Main Building. The Massachusetts, the Pittsburg, and the Cincinnati Schools of Design liavo some excellent work: as I cannot go Into them tin detail without the risk of rousing that pceullarly-fcmlnlno quality known us envy (no envious man was ever heard of), I won’t Indulge in particulars. The real truth is, that, by thu lime I got around lo these things, 1 was too tired and too much In a hurry to give them any more than a passing glance, and, until 1 havo looked at these more carefully, it would bo uujufil (or tno to attempt any comparisons. Cincinnati lias some good earring in black walnut furniture of various kinds. There Is a bcdstead.whlch was curved by two young ladles, and Its history . UOUDBRS ON TUB ROMANTIC. They learned wood-curving as n pastime, when their lather was wealthy: now ho has lost his property, ami they 11 mf the occupation a good imu to assist (hem in supporting themselves. There aro a parlor-organ, also fn black walnut; a piano of tho same material; and u cabinet in imitation of the antique. The metal hinges of this cab inet arc the work of women, and they are mado Just us well ns men could make them. There are other things in black wal nut, " too numerous to mention," ns tho advertisements say; and there is a pretty bust in marble, representing a girl bolding a dog In her arms. Tnero is u pair of lace coverings, for pillows, mado by a girl 14 years old; and there Is a covered bedstead, with lace covering for the bed, all made by a grandmother for her gramlclUld. Tliev have in this department some laces from Fayal, mail from the fibre of tho aloe; they have Tunisian curtains and table-covers; ana they have En glish, French, and Austrian work in con siderable quantity, all from fair bands. There ore ilnting-irons, ami nil sorts of things for laundry-work; and there aroma chines for washing dishes, scouring knives, and doing other kinds of household duties. I was led by one ease which. I was told, contained noth* ingot interest ..to tlie iinuseulino eye; perhaps it was a eolleetion of machines for washing and dressing babies, teaching them not to cry, and behave themselves generally when bachelor rel atives are about. I will go there some time, and Investigate tho contents of that mysterious ease. MR. JONES* SUICIDE. The Particulars of a Melancholy Event. J'hllailelphla ItulleUn, His name was not Alelhiades Jones, bntfor tho sake of avoiding scandal we will call him that. He lives in a certain town in Montgomery Coun tv. Some time ngo ho wooed and lost ft Miss Julia Bangs. He was perfectly desperate over iris defeat, and his friends feared that some evil consequences would ensue. Their apprehen sions were realized. Jones called.upon Peter Lamb and asked him if ho hud a revolver, and Peter said ho had. Jones asked Lamb to lend it to him, and Peter did so. Then Jones in formed Peter that he hud made up ids mind to commit suicide. Ho said that since Miss Bangs luul dealt ho unkindly with him he felt that *lifo was an Insupportable burden, and he could tlnd relief only hi the tomb. He intended to go down by the river shore, and there blow out his bruins and so end all this Buffering and grief,' and hid (unveil to a world that had grown dark to him. He said that he mentioned the fact to Lamb in contldeneu because he wanted him to perform Hume little offices for him when he was gone. Ho Intruated to Lamb a sonnet entitled •‘A Last Farewell.” and adressed to Julia Hangs. This, he asked, should be delivered to Miss Bangs us soon as his corpse was discovered. He said It might excite a pong in her bosom, and induce her to cherish his memory. Then be gave Peter his watch as a keepsake, and handed him S4O with wldeh he desired Mr. Lamb to purchase a tombstone. He said ho would prefer a plain ouc with his simple name cut upon It, uml ho wanted the funeral to bo as unostentatious as possible. Peter promised to fuhill these commissions, and he suggestlid that he would lend .Sir. Junes a bowlcktme with which he could slush himself up If the pistol failed’ But the suicide said that he would make euro work with the revolver, although ho was much obliged for the offer all the huuic. Hu said ha would like Lamb to go uruuud in the morning mid break the nows us gently us possible to his miliappy mother. amPtu tell her that his last thought was of her. But he particularly re nuceied that she would not put on mourning for her erring son. • Then Ju> said that the awful act would be per fronted on the l>eaeh, Just below the (losTWocks, and he wished Peter' to eouie with huiuu kind of a vehicle to bring the remains home. If Julia came to the funeral she was to have a scut iu the carriage next to the bourne, uml If she want ed his hearth it was th be given to her in alcohol. It beat only-for her. Peter was to tell his employers at the store that he parted with them with regret,” but, doubtless they would llud soma other person more worthy of their confidence uml esteem. He said he uldu’t care where ho was burled, but let it bo in some lonely place, far from the turmoil and trouble of the world, some place where the gross grows green, and where tile birds come to carol iu tliu curly spring-time. Air. tamo usked him If he prefered a deep or u shallow grave, hut Mr. Jones said It made very little dlffcriuice—-when the spirit wus gone, the mere earthly clay was of little ueount. Hu owed 71) cents for billiards down at the saloon, and Lamb was to pay that out of the money In his hands, and to request the clergyman not to preach a sermon at* the cemetery. Then he shook hands with Peter, aud went away to his awful doom. The next morning r. Lamb wrote to Julia, stopped in to tell them ut tho store, ami nearly killed Mm. Junes with the Intelligence. Then he borrowed Conley’s wagon, uiul, taking with him tlie Coroner, he drove out to thoocacli, just below* the Gas Works, to fetch homo thu mutilated corime. When they reached tho spot, the body was not there, and Peter sold ho was very much afraid It luul washed away by the flood-tide, bo these drovo up to Keyset's hnun*, about half a mile from the shoru, to aik If any one of the folks there luid hard thu fatal SUtof-bhot or seen the body. Ongoing around m wood-pllo they saw Keyser holding a terrier dug backed close up against a log. The dog’s tail was lying across the log, and another msn hud the ax uplifted. A second later thu ax do*, seended and cut tho tall olf close to the dog, mid, while Keyser restrained the frantic animal, the other mtui touched the bleeding slump with caustic. As they let the* dog go, Lamb was amazed (o sec that the chopper wow the wretch ed suicide. lie was amazed, but before he could tutk any (lueations Alclbhulcs stepped up to bint and sold: “ilubh-oh-ehl Don’t say anything about Uiat mutter. } thought l>ctter of it. The pistol looked so blamed aangerjus when I cocked It tbut I changed my mind, tnd came over here to Keyser'a to stay all night. I’m going to live Just to spile that Hung* girl.” Then the Coroner bald that he didn't consider he had been treated like u gentleman, and ho had half a notion to give .Mr. Jones a pounding. Hut they all drove hum* In the wagon, and, just vs iub.Junes gut duns hugging Aldhhuies, a letter was handed him umeernlng tho bonnet he hud aunt Julio, bho returned 1L with the remark that it won thu awfuleat slusu she ever read, and that she knew lie hadn’t courage enough to kill himself. Then AlrUilades went hack to tho store, and was surprised to find tlmt his employers so little enotlon as to dock him for halls day 1 absence.

How tho Followers of Zoroaster Dispose of Their Dead. „ ADcscrlpllnn of the Funeral Customs of the I’lirsccs at llombuy. London limn. Mr. Monlcr Williams, Bodcn Professor of Sanskrit, writing under Onto Belvedere, Calcut ta favors us'Vtilh (lie following highly (liter c.'tiug account nf what may he called, though (he expression scarcely applies, tho Parsce “Cemetery” In Bombay: “At a time when the attention of the nrlllidi public la attracted 'lrrcslslnbly towards the Queen's Indian Empire a short account of a visit 1 have lately paid to the Parsec ‘Tower of Sllchca* may possibly be rend with Interest. Your columns have probably already contained a record nf tho Prince or Whales’ Visit to tho same locality, and through the kindness .of Sir JamecLJoo Jejeebhoy the very same privileges of Inspection which his Koval Highness enjoyed were accorded to me. . “Your renders arc doubtless awnro that the Parsecs an; descendants of the ancient Persians who were expelled from Persia by tho Mohammedan conquerors, and who llrat settled at Sural about 1,100 years ago. Accord ing to the last census they do not number more than 70,000 souls, of .whom about 00,000 uro found in the City of Bombay, but cbiclly In Guzernt and the Bombay Presi dency. Though u mere drop In the ocean nf 240,000,000 Inhabitants, (hoy form a most Important ami influential body of men, emu lating Europeans In energy and enterprise, rivaling them In opulence, and Imitating them in many of their habits. Their vernacular lau guago Is Guzorntl, but Pearly every adultspcaks English with fluency, ami English is .now taught In all their schools. Their benevolent Institution for the education of at least 1,0 IX) boys and girls Is In a noble building, mid Is n model of good management. Their religion, os delivered in Its original purity by their prophet Zoroaster, and as propounded Jn tho /cml-Avesln, is monotheistic, or, perhaps, rather pantheistic, in spile of Its phlio-' sophlcal dualism and In spite of the an* jiarent worship of lire and the dements, regard ed os visible representations of llib Deity. Its morality la summed up In three precepts of two words ouch, —* good thoughts,’ ‘good words,’ 'good deeds,’— Kjf which the Parsce Is con stantly reminded by tho triple coll of his white cotton girdle. It] its origin the Parsed system Is allied to that of the Hindu Aryans.—as repre sented In tbo Vedn,—and has much In common with the more recent Brahmanism. ■ Neither re ligion can make proselytes. “A man must be borna BrahmanoraParsoe; no power can convert him Into either ono or tho other. Ono notable peculiarity, however, dis tinguishes Parscclsm. Nothing similar to its funeral rites prevails among other nations; though the practice of exposing bodies on the tops of rocks is not unusual among the Budcl-. hlsts of Bhutan. “Thu Dnkhmns, or Parseo Towers of Silence, nre erected In a uunlen, on the highest point ot Mulabar-hiU, a beautiful rising ground on one side of Clack Bar, noted for tho bungalows and compounds of the European and wealthier in* habitants of Bombay scattered in every direc tion over Its surface. “Thegarden Is approached hy a wcll-con strudtd private road, all access to which, except, to Parsecs, is barred bv strong Iron gates. Thanhs to tho omnipotent Sir SanißCtleo, no obstacles inqieded my advance.’ The massive gates flew open before mo as if by magic, I drove rapidly through a park-llko ih elosurc, and found the courteous Secrotanr of the Parsec Punehayal, Mr. Nussorwanjeo Bry unijee, awaiting my arrival at tho entrance to the garden. He took me at unco to the highest poliii In the consecrated ground, and wc stood together on the terrace of the largest of the three bayria, or Houses of Prayer,' which overlook the live Towers of Silence. Tills principal Sagrl contains tho sacred fire, which, when ouco kindled and consecrated by solemn ceremonial, Is fed day and night with intense and fragrant sandal, and never ex tinguished. Tho view from this spot can scarcely lie surpassed hy any In tho world. Be neath us lay the City of Bombay, partially hid den hy coeoimut groves, with Us beautiful hny and hrtrbor glittering In the brilliant December light. Beyond stretched tho magnifi cent ranges of the gluuts. while immediately around us bxtended a garden, such as can only ho seen in tropical countries. No English no blomau’s garden could bo better kept, and no pen could do justice to the glories of its Dower ing shrubs, cypresses, and prims. It seemed tho very Ideal, not only of a place of sacred silence, but of peaceful rest. “ But what are those tlvo circular structures which appear at intervals rising mysteriously out of tho foliage ! They are simply masses of of mhsoury. massive enough to lost for cen turies, built of the hardest hlac'r. granite, and covered with white chuuam, the pur ity and smoothness of .which arc disfigured hy patches of black fungus-likc Incrustations. Towers they scarcely deserve to be called! for tho height of each la quite out of proportion to Its diameter. Tim largest of tho tlvo, built with such solid grunlto that lift cost of erection was three lacs of rupees, scorned about forty feet hi diameter and not laoro than tweuty-flvc feet in height. Tho oldcstond smallest of the live was constructed 2W years ago, when tho Parasocs first settled in Bombay, and is now only used by tbo Modi family, whoso forefathers built It. and here tho Imiics of many kindred generations tire com mingled. The next oldest was erected in 1750, and the other three during tho succeeding century. A sixth tower stands quite apart from tho others, it is square in shape, and only used for persons who have suffered death for heinous crimes. Tim bones of con victed criminals arc never allowed to mluglo with those of the rew of the community. “But the strangest feature in these strange, unsightly structures, so Incongruously In termixed with graceful cypresses and palms, exquisite shrubs, and gorgeous flowers, remains to be described. Though wholly des titute of ornament, and even of tho simplest molding, the parapet of each tower possesses on extraordinary coping, which Instantly at tracts and fascinates the cuzo.> It is a coping formed, not of dead stone, but of living vulturw. These birds .oa tha occasion of my visit had settled themselves side hy side hi perfect order and In a complete circle around tno panqxda of tho towers, with their heads pointed inwards, ami so lazily did they sit ihcru and so motionless was their whole mien, that, except for their color, they might havo been carved out of the stonework. So much for the external aspect of the celebrated Towers of Silence. Alter they havo been ooco consecrated by solemn ceremonies no one except ttio corpse bearers is ujlowcd to enter; nor is any one, nob even a Pursue High Priest, permitted to up l*oach within JJO lect of tho immediate pre cincts. An exact model of the interior was, however, shown to mo, “ Imagine a round column or massive cylinder 12 or 14 feat high, uud at least 40 feet In diame ter, built throughout of solid stone, except la the centre, where u well five or six feet across leads down to an excavation under the masonry, containing four drains at right angles to each other, terminated by holes filled with charcoal. Hound the uppetsurfara of this solid circular cylinder, add completely hiding the inferior from view Is a stone parapet, 10 or 12 feet, in height. This It Is which, when viewed from the outside, appears to form one nieeo will) the solid stone work, and being. like It, covered with chuuam, gives the whole tho appearance of a low tower. ' Tho upper surface of the solid stone column is dlvldcu Into seven 4y-two comportments, or open receptacles, ra diating like the spokes of a wheel from the central well, and arranged In three concentric rings, separated from each oilier by narrow ridges of stone, which tiro grooved to net as channels for conveying tul moisture from tho receptacles into tho well and Into the lower drains. It should bo noted, by the by, that the number *B’ is emblematical of Zoroaster’s three precepts, and tho number ‘ W ’ of the chapters of his Vosuv—a portion of the Zend-Avesta. * T. W. K. "Each cfrcln of open stone cofllns is divided from tlie next by u pathway, sp that tiicre are three circular pathways, the last encircling tho central well, and these three pathways are eroded by another pathway, conducting from the solitary dour whluwuluilts tho corpse-hearers from the Interior. *Xn tbe outermost circle of the stone coillua ore placed the bodies of mules, la the mkldle those of fe males, and in thu inner and smallest circle, near est thu well, those of children. .< “ While 1 was engaged with tho Secretary to examining tho model, a sodden etir among tbe vultures made tu rabio our beads. At least a hundred birds collected round one of tbe towers begun to show symptoms of ex citement. while others swooped down from neighboring trees. Tbe cause of this sud den abandonment of their previous apathy soon revealed Itself. A funeral was seen to be approaching. However distant the house of a deceased person, and whether he be rich or poor, high or law In rank, his body U always carried to the towers by the olilclul corpse bearers, coiled A'aMMttfar, who form a distinct doss, the mourners walking behind. As tbs ■bearer* ant supposed to contract impurity to «y tyir dnfa aid itax&A w. lire Bpdrt from tho rent pc tbft community, and ore, therefore, highly paid. ** Uetofo they remove the body from tho house where the relative* nra Msotnblcil, fUncrnl prnycni nre recited, end the corpse Is exposed to the pose of a doc, regarded hy the Pnrsces at a siicrerl animal. This latter ceremony is called Sandhi. • ‘‘Then the hotly, swathed In n while shoot, U placed on a curved metal trough, open at boll) ends, and tho dressed in pure while garments, proceed with it toward, tho towers. They are followed by tho mourners at a distance of at least 30 feet, In pairs, also dressed In white, and each couple joined hy holding a white handker chief between them. The particular funeral 1 witnessed was that of a child. When the two corpse-bearers reached the path leading hy a steep Incline tu the door of the lower, the tnourners, about eight In number, turned hack and entered one of the prayer houses. * There,’ said tho Secretary, ‘jltoy repeat certain Gatlins, and pray that the spirit of the deceased may be safely transported on the fourth day after death to Its llnnl resting place. • “ The tower selected for the present funeral was one In which other members of the same family had before been laid. Two boanrs speedily unlocked the door, reverently conveyed the bony of ttic child Into the •Interior, and. unseen by any one, laid It uncovered In one of tho open stone receptacles nearest the central well. In two minutes they reappeared with the empty blcr and white cloth; and scarcely had they cldseil the door when a dozen vultures swooned down upon tho body, and were rapidly followed hy others. In five min ntes raoro we saw the satiated birds fly back and lazily settle down again upon Dm para pet. They had left nothing behind but a skele ton. Meanwhile the hearers were scon to enter ft building shaped like a huge barrel. There,, os the Secretary informed me, they changed their clothes and washed themselves. Shortly afterwards we saw them come out and deposit their east-oil funeral garments on a stone reeoptshlu near at hand. Not a thread leaves the garden, lest It should carry defilement Into the city. Perfectly new garments oru supplied at each funeral. In a fortnight, or at most four weeks, the same bearers return, and with gloved hands, and implements resembling tongs place the dry skeleton In tho central well. There the bones find (heir hwt resting-place, and there the dust ol whole generations of Parsecs com mingling Is left undisturbed for centuries. The revolting sight of the gorged vultures made mu turn my back oik the towers with Ul-ebncoalcd abhorrence. I ajkcd the Secretary how It was possible to become recon ciled to such a usage. Ills reply was nearly In the following words: * Our Prophet, Zoroaster, who lived 0,000 year* ago, taught us to regard the dementi as symbols of tho Deity. Earth, fire, water, he said, ought rtfcrcr, under any circumstances, to ha defiled by con tact with putrefying Ucsh. Naked, he said,- wc Came Into the world, and naked 1 we ought to leave 1U Out tho decaying parti cles of our bodies should be dissipated as rapid ly as possible, and in such a way that neither Mother *Eurth nor the beings she supports should be contaminated in tho slightest degree. In fact, our Prophet was the greatest of health officers, and, following his sanitary luwg, wo build our towers on the tons of tho hills, above all human habitations. We spare no expense In constructing them of the hardest materials, and wo expose our putres cent bodies In open stone receptacles, resting U feet of solid granite, not necessari ly to be . consumed by vultures, but tu be dissipated hi the speediest possible manner, and without the possibility ol polluting tho earth or contaminating n single living being dwelling thereon. Go<J Indeed sends the vul tures, and. ns n matter of fact, these birds do their appointed work much more expeditiously than millions of Insects would do if wo com mitted ohr bodies to the ground. In a sanitary paint of view nothing can be more perfect than our plan. Even the rain-water which washes our skeletons is con ducted by chanucls into purifying charcoal. Hero in these five towers rest the hones of all the Parsecs that have lived In Hoinhay for tho lost 200 years. Wo form a united body In life, and wc arc united In death, Even our lender, Sir Jotnsctjcc. likes to feci that when he dies ho will bo reduced to per fect equality wltb tho poorest and humblest of tho Parsec eombumlty.’ u Whuu tho Secretary had finished his de fense of the Towers ot Silence, I could not help thinking that however much such a system may shock our European feelings And ideas, yet our own method of Interment, If regarded from a Parsec point of .view, may possibly bo equally revolting to Pnrscu sensibilities. Tho exposure of tho decaying body to tho assaults of Innumerable worms may have no ter rors for us, because our survivors do not see tho assailants; but let it bo borne in mind that ntilthor' are tho Parsco survivors-permitted to look at tho swoon of the Heaven-sent birds. Why, then, should wo bo surprised if they pre fer tno more rapid to the more lingering opera tion? and which of the two systems, they may reasonably ask, Is more defensible on miultary grounds f” _ Tho Largest Swamp In This Country. The surveying party sent out to survey the Okefeuokeo Swamp report that It measures 143 miles In circumference, and. with the sinuosities, 160 miles around. This vaslfonnatlon, 150 miles long and 17 miles wide. Is the largest swamp in the Unltcd States. It II cs in the southeastern Eart of Georpfa, but partly in north Florida, [cro is the Suwanco River, made famous by the .pogro melody of tho “ Old Folks at Home." It traverses a largo section of upper Florida, is bordered with valuable cypress and other tim ber, and empties Into tho gulf at a point 18 wiles above Cedar Keys.

Tho discovery of a lot of mounds, “probably built by a rate of men existing before tho Indians,’' is also re ported.
