Mr. Hninin’s Experience. Philadelphia Jtuttetln. Mr. Sniflln sends us tho following: When I bought my present place tho former owner offered, as ono of the inducements to purchase, the fact that there was u superb sugar uiiplc tree In tho garden. It was a uoblc tree, and I made up my mind that 1 would tap it some day mid manufacture some sugar. However, I never did ho until this year, liut a few weeks ego 1 concluded to draw the sap, and to have what Mr. Hangs calls “a sugar-blUnV’ My wife’s uncle was staying with us, and inviting tome friends to come and cut the sugar, ho and I got to work. We took a huge wash-kettle down Into thu yard and piled eomo wood be neath It, and then wo brought out a couple ot buckets to catch the sap, und the auger with which to bore a hole in the tree. My wife’s undo said that *iic backet ought to be set about Bfeet from tree, as the sap would spurt right out with a good deal of force, and It would bu u pity to waste any of it. Then lie lighted the jro while I bored the bole about 4 laches deep. When I took the auger out the sup did not follow, but my wife’s undo said what It wanted was a little time, and so, while we waited, he put a fresh armful ot wood ou the lire. Wo waited half an hour, and as the sap didn't cornu I concluded that the bole was not deep enough, so 1 began boring again; but I bored too fur, for the auger went clear through the tree aud penetrated The back of my wife’s uncle, who was leaning up against tha trunk trying to light his pipe, ilu jumped nearly 40 feet, and 1 had to mend him up with court-plaster. Tliuii ho sold ho thought the reason the sap didn't come was that there ought to bu a kind of spigot In thu hole so us to let It runoff easily. Wo got the wooden spigot from Uie vinegar barrel In the cellar and Inserted It, Thun, as the eap did not come, my wife’s uncle said ho thought the spigot must bo lamed In so tight that it choked the How; and, while 1 tried to push it out, liu fed Uie lire with some Kindling wood. As the spigot could not be budged with a hammer, I concluded to boro it out with the auger, aud meanwhile my wife’s uncle stirred thu lire. Then the auger broke oil short In the bole, and 1 had to go tialf a mile U) the hard ware store to gut another one. Then I bored a fresh hole, and although the tap would not come, the company did, and they tumbled witli much Interest that kettle, which now rod-hot, and which my wife’s undo was hying to lift oil the lire with the hay-fork. As |ne »itp still refused to come, 1 went over for Bings to tell mu how to make that exasperating tree disgorge. When he arrived he looked at uo hole, then at the spigot, then at the kettle, wd then at the tree.

Philadelphia, Pa., May 23.—Tho Centennial grounds tills morning allowed prettily under the bright sun, the verdure having assumed a Btifl brighter tint after the heavy rain of last evening. The attendance has not materially In creased. THE FRENCH DEPARTMENT today received several valuable acquisitions of goods, and the work of arranging them will still further delay the completion of the exhibition lu the Main Building. AUSTRALIA. Victoria and South Australia, In tho British section, are making excellent progress, and espe cially In the space allotted to the first-mentioned. Sontb Australia has uncovered several large cases of beautiful birds, but what the other big packages contain remains to bo seen. TURRET appears to be in a comatose condition. The boxes and packages which have been In tho building for a number of weeks are still unopened, and much anxiety la entertained to know the nature of their contents. JAPAN. The Japanese bazaar, situated lust coat of (la department of public comfort, fa being rapidly brought to completion. It is expected that it will bo ready for opening about tho first of next week, and lu it will bo samples of Japanese manufactures and staple products fur ealo in 1U exterior. It presents the name peculiar aspect os the Japanese Government building, and exhibits the same beau tiful and unique workmanship. tub judges or award have been called to meet to-morrdvr for the first time, In the Judges’ Hail.

Special Corretpondenct t\f The Tribune. PniLADELrniA, Pa., May 20.—Philadelphia never docs anything by halves, and any of her citizens will tell you so. Whether it Is a church picnic or a prize-fight, a wedding or a burglary, a foot-race or a meeting of tho Peace Society, tho city comes out strong and gives its whole mind to tho matter. When it comes to the natural elements as well, you will find that tho Quaker City is no slouch. In the early part of the week, it rained,—not an uncertain, intermittent rain, hut a regular downpour, as though the Clerk of tbe Weather was giving his whole mind to it. It rained not only cats and dogs, but now and then there was a fall of rats min gled with foxes and mud-turtles. It was cold ut the same time that it was wet, and you had to take along your spring overcoat to save yourself' from suffer ing. At the Centennial Grounds, the roads and walks became lanes of mild, and top-boots were a necessity in locomotion. The way from the gates to tho Government Building, as near as I could estimate It, was 1,500 feet long, 40 feet wide, and 2 feet deep. There were variations In the depth, but 2 feet was about tho average. A good many boot-soles were torn in the straggle with the plastic soil, and black clothes gave to their wearer an indication of attempting to rival tho hues of a spotted ’ * yalicr dog." Wo bad this sort of thing down to yesterday, and then there was a change. Night before last, tho sky became clear as tho conscience of a church going Philadelphian (which is about tbe strongest simile 1 know of), and yesterday morning tho aun came out as ho does on the Desert of Sahara. It was warm in tho morning, it was warmer at 10 o'clock, and it was hot at noon. By 3 o'clock It was hotter, and you conld sec people all around . you sweating like prize-oxen lu a race. The stoke room of a steamer, or thu furnace of a foundry, whs suggested, and some persons thought of getting into a steam-bath to coo). But every Philadelphian said, “Fine day to-day 1 Charming—cool—delightful! Wo shall have warm weather hy-and-by, and then we Hhall look bock with pleasure to those cool days. ” They dou’t cull It warm now: wonder what it will be like when it gels sultry t X fancy the Exhibition build ings can then be turned Into bakeries without cost ing anything for fuel. The Turks, and Egyptians, onuTunlaiana may like It; but It won’t be so with people from tho Northwest, and especially those who ordinarily breathe tbe air wafted from the Great Lakes. VISIT OP BOSTONIANS. Yesterday was mudo memorable by the visit of the Boston Commercial Club, which is an offshoot of the Boston Board of Trade, whose chief end and aim la life la to bavo a good dinner once a month. Ordinarily they meet in Boston; bat this lime they eonctadud-to dine in Philadelphia, and invite Ucn. Uuwley, Director-General Uoahorn, and other officials, as well as thu leading city offi cers, to meet with them. They came, they saw. ami last night they concurred In having u good time. Your respectable Bostonian Is as straight as a string at home,—ho otherwise and be respectable,—but. when ho gets away, bo sometimes lets himself out. It was so yesterday among those leading merchants of the moat dlgnl lied city in America. They rode round thu Exhibi tion. bad a reception at the Massachusetts State Building, and then adjourned to a neighboring res taurant which they had chartered fur the dinner above-mentioned. And It was a dinner,—pro gramme on silk; three kinds of champagne; birds, and ilsh, aud hush, and leu-cream with two spoons for each man; white wine, red wine, blue wine, green wine, and red wine; and hammocks slung in the buck yard for such us gut drunk early. Of course tho hammocks were nut needed, as no Bos ton man ever takes enough to mnko bis throat ferffsky.or prevent his pronouncing the word “ccnl as" with less than three syllables. One of the Boston party told me they weru very Indignant that those hammocks had been slung at all; though he said It was au old Philadelphia custom, and they would not Interfere with 1C; but they had informed the proprietor bo needn't go to Umt expense again when the Commercial Club conics here. If there Is anything that I like, It is modesty,— that quality so excellent In woman, and not oat of place, ihoughoccaslonally Inconvenient, In u man. And I adore Boston for Its modesty in speaking of itself and what It hasaceompllahcd. In uie speech making at the dinner last night, I don't suppose any on# of Uio orators alluded more than twenty times to the greatness of Boston, to her proud Kisltlon as thu centre of learning and education, the enterprise of her merchants, to the grand old Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the Bay Btato, and all that sort of thing, lu the aggre gate, not mure than half the speech-making was exclusively confined to these tuples.— wheiithere was nothing to prevent their monopoly of thu talk. You could never mistake that parly of last night as any but a Boston party, and yoa couldn’t bo long among them without knowing it. X often think of what a Xtnsslan lady, who had been In New England, said In my hearing, “I like the Boston people very much," she said.' “They are very polite and very kind; they show you every thing In their city; but they are very much con vMai of their own Importance." A GOOD STOUT latot(3of a partyof New-Yorkers thatcame hero last week for a vacation,undbadit. They weroinforall the good tbinga that could be had around the Cen tennial Uruuml!, and their drafts upon the stock of champagne ou hand were so heavy as to threaten its exhaustion. They did not got into the station house; but their efforts In its direction were decid edly earnest, audit Is almost u wonder that they kept out. Their first night here, thoy didn't re turn to their hotel until a o'clock. 11 was raining, and one of the party Insisted on washing his face in a mud-puddls in front of the house, and drying it on the door-mat; and then be was thought to be drank. One of their amusementa included a ride op an elevator Just outside the grounds, whence there la a fine view over Philadelphia and Us vicinity. Two or three dared not lake the vertical journey, as their heads were slreody sinking; sud one who did try it Imagined be was on a steamer, and became seasick. Naturally, he wcut and leaned over the rail: and naturally—you can Imagine what followed. Many of his friends were standing below; hut they concluded to change their positions only when it was too late. “Obtew ardl Steward I bring mu a cocktail,—yes, two cocktails! Where the d—lckens la the Steward? ’ be murmured, like the gnrgllnguf a small brook beneath the lea; and then he sat down and asked to bo put ashore. 1 wasn't there, and can't vouch for the whole story, as people will exaggerate, and I obtained my information from one of.lbe party who was not In a condition to edit a Bible dictionary at the time hu talked to me. Doubtlcr* tbs Centennial will be (he excuse for a great many com ivla) parlies this year from all tbe dries of the Union,—at least, from most of them.

I have already given the reasons why the railways will not make a general reduction; and there Is no necessity of repeating them here. urmum.lo apparatus. The hydraulic apparatus In Machinery Hall Is far more extensive In quantity than, and superior In quality to, the similar exhibit at Vienna. It Is In a sort of annex Just off from the great hall, and has In Its centre a largo pond, where powerful engines are constantly drawing water out and throwing it in again, homo of them work with immense force, and show what they could do In a real matter of business. Pumps seem to he one of our strong liolnts, and our exhibit In this line beats all that tas ever been done before In any part of the world. As you enter (he hydraulic department, you come first upon several steam flre-englncs, some of them very elaborately finished, and plated throughout with nickel. They appear toe nice for practical use, and probably the owners will have some trouble In selling them at cost. These engines are not In operation, and sows are left to conjecture their power; hut there is no reason to doubt that they could do soma excellent work. The hydraulic department is approached through an avenue of cases filled with faucets, hose, and other mailers usually associated with water-works; and some of the cases have a very attractive appearance. Here, as elsewhere, all the mschincs are not yet set up; and one of the most powerful, which Is intended to throw a young Niagara Into the tank, has not thrown Its first bucketful. There are several atcam-heaters on (he left-hand side of the tank, and beyond them were some English pumping machines, apparently of great power. Connecti cut has a good display, and so has New York. Munacbnsolls senoa a pump that Is said to be very powerful: but It has & curious motion, which la rather Inclined to give one the headache If he con templates it for nny length of time. One firm ex hibits a lot of wooden pumps of the old atyls, with a patent arrangement of some kind that makes them suck water without half-trying. There are { tumps and pumps here till yon grow weary of ooklngatlhem; and then, as you go along, you find pumps more and more numerous, llalr-a dozen establishments have whole lots of pumps fenced off and yarded in; they are of all sizes, from the kind large enough to supply water for the most extensive milk-dealer in New York, down to those which would amuse a small boy by enabling him to spoil a carpet while exhausting the baby's bath tub. Yon can have anything hero that you want in the pomp line, and more than you want If you get at the end of one of the big pipes leading Into the tank. VBNTILATORB, Air baa a certain relation to water, and so it is proper that ventilating and blowing machines should bo in this exhibit. An Inventor, or exhibit or, saw me taking notes, and thought he might make a point by interviewing me. “ (lood morn ing, sir," said be. “You see before you the greatest blower In tho country." “Clad to make your acquaintance," I replied: “I have long been looking for him." “I allude to my machine," be answered, with evident anger, which be made an effort to conceal. * 'lt ia the greatest blower ever known." “You forget Gcorgo Francis Train." I respond ed, and also"——bnl by this time be had gone, and 1 woe loft In peace to pursue my Investiga tions. But, joking aside, these blowing-machines are excellent, and I wish we had more of them for tho ventilation of public and private buildings. They throw an enormous current of air, and throw ft steadily hour after hour, as long as the machine Is turned. If the law their attachment to every theatre andlcctnre-hali in the country, it would do a good thing for the public health. One of them la spcclallydealgned for ventilating mines, ami many of them are said to be In use in the coal mlfilngdlstricts. There are several machines for drying clothes in laundries; and thoro is a machine whose use 1 could not determine, but It stood among the pumps os though It had a perfect right to bo thertv It is customary to find fault with the Commis sion, and 1 looked around in the hydraulic annex for something to complain about. The only point I could light upon was: that the water in the tank is dirty, and the Commission ought to supply fil tered water in its place. And, If they can’t get that, they might put In whisky, or beer, or some slmtlarly-attroctive fluid. I will warrant that tbe crowds in attendance woula bo larger than they are now. Clone by tbe hydraulic annex there is a lot of files on exhibition,—savers! coses of them. One company has a neatly-painted picture represent ing a lot of beavers ut work, and, os their teeth become dull, they resort to some of tho files that are scattered around. A snake has also come for ward and lain bold of one of tho instruments; but whether to improve bis dentals, or simply to file tho thing away, lam enable to state. Vices, Or vises,—you may spoil tbo word Just as you like, and! won’t got mad,—ore also on exhibition In considerable variety, and you are invited to insert your finger and ascertain bow bard one of them can squeeze. These instruments or tools, orwhat ever you dhoose to call them, have a variety of shapes and styles, and are not bad to look upon. They compel you to admit that tbe poet was wrong when bo said: Vice is a monster of such frightful mien That to be hated needs but to be seen. It isn’t so at all. I looked at vice in all Its forms yesterday, and didn’t hate it worth a cent. After all, there Is a good deal of blag ue about the hid eousness of vice,— the kind that was in the poet’s mind,—if we may judge by tbe way it flourishes. I know lots of mon who have been band-ln-glovo with wickedness for quite a number of years, apd, barring headaches next morning, and occasional, twinges of gout or rheumatism, they seem to like It rather than otherwise. At all events, they stick to it persistently, and would rather play draw poker and win than read the best compilation over made by tbo American Tract Society. I have shaken hands somewhat with Vico on my oWn accouiit, as I have been to the theatre and tho minstrels, and once In a while I tako In tho circus, especially when there Is a fair prospect that somo bare-back rider or ground and lofty tumbler will break bis nock. Many peonle say that tbe minstrels, and theatres, and circuses are bad (I know many of them are frequently so); and so I suppose 1 most stand up and be catechised. TUB BUNDAT QUESTION. And this reminds me that the Commission played it sharp on the Sunday-opening qoesUon by post f onlng the matter until tbolr next meeting, nod hen adjourning until the Ist of July. Tbli was a neat dodge,—one of the prettiest I have known la a longtime,—and It does credit to somebody’s acuteness. So wo may settle down into the con clusion that wo have no Sunday-opening for the present. July Is a long way off, but meantime wo must not allow the matter to rest. Itemembor the advlpo to ‘‘Posh things, "and don’t fall to kocp pushing on tho Sunday-opening question. SUNDAY NOTES. A QUIET ASV QUAKES SUNDAY—A TENDER POINT WITH TUB NATIVES—UOW TO WJN A PHILADELPHIA HEART PAIRMOUNT PARK AND LAUREL HILL—A RESTAURANT fcODQB. Special Corretpondenee Th* Tribune. Philadelphia,- May 31.—Tho whirligig of Time bos again brought us around to Sunday, which occurs now with unfailing regularity as often os once a week. It Is hot enough to-day to suggest something not usually connected with Sunday mottoes, and perhaps it Is quite as well that the Exhibition is not open today, as the Commission would ran the risk of l>eing mulcted fora few dozen sun-strokes, and the oost of these cases would seriously dimin ish the prospective profits of tho Great Show. In point of quiet and Sab bath observance, to-day will com pare favorably with lost Sunday; perhaps it Is a trifle more quiet, for the reason that It la some what hotter, and people don’t like to circulate too much with the thermometer pretty nearly up to p&r. The streetcars were doing a good business, and so were some of the excursion steamers on the rtvora, and tboasands of people were oat to take a breath of fresnalr, which they cannot easily take during the week. Everywhere yon are reminded that it la Sunday. The people have ajerlous air, and the churches are open; as for that matter, the bar-rooms are also open through their tldo-doora, and if the/ don't have os large congregations as the churches do, they have them around much later In the evening. The poor and tha drunkards wo have with us always, though I am happy to say that, since I came boro, I havo not seen half-a-doxeu Intoxicated men, aud proba bly a goodly portion of those were from New York or tome other village. WEAK POINT OP A PHILADELPHIAN. Them is a tender spot In the heart of a Quaker City resident, and It is well for the intending vis itor to know It. As the young Roman wan trained (o say every morning with his orisons, and every evening with bis bed-time prayers, ' •Delends esl Carthago," so the young Philadelphian Is trained to look frownlngly and with despite upon New York. The nncontb and ribald native objurgates the City of MantheUa with phraseology a setupbstic as It Is brief; it begins with a capital D and ends with a diminutive u. The dignlded resident Is more po lite, but none the less emphatic. His ancestry Is supposed to data from the time the honest William Penn bought the ground of the Indians, and. as some history has it, got much the beet of them in the bargain: and therefore ho cannot swear even when New York is the topic. You onn win your way at once Into favor, ami, If you do the tiling nicely, yon can reduce your expense! several per cent. You meet a native In the strect-car. and break the ice by ask ing if Market street Is parallel to Tenth street, or hew you can get to the corner of Chestnut and Walnut. Ho sets yen right and observes that you are a stranger: sad, it he doesn't observe so, It Is well to make that remark yourself. Then the con versation takes a turn something like lha follow “ How do you find Philadelphia, slrf Is tills the drsl time you have been beret" You—‘'Yes, this is the dm rime I have over seen your beautiful city. 1 like It exceedingly, aud my chief regret in life is that 1 have so long delayed my visit” Ut~ • ‘ Buangere always And Philadelphia charm ing.

It la a ruined city, and not worth a moment's consideration." //e—.“Of conrae yon will spend days here. If yon aro not engaged for day after to-mor row come and dine at my house. I will Invite aomc twenty or more of the leading citizens, who will be pleased to meet yon. Yon will see the Hon. , apd also the lion. —; and the rest will be hardly lesa noted than they. I shall counton you as my guest for that evening." He leaves the car nnd yon at tho next comer, and you are In for as rood a dinner as yon could wish to rat. You have hit the right key-note by abusing New York, so far at the average Philadelphian Is concerned. Don’t Imagine that all ore like him, aa there arc hundreds and hundreds of men here who ran see mile* and rude* beyond their mms. and have no petty Jealousies. Why th'-rc should bo so much of this feeling I am unable to understand, when I remember that Philadel phia Lae four-fifths as many inhabitants aa New York, and has a prosperous and productive coin* mere*. There la no reason for any jealousy: New York ha* none, and a New Yorker ia very unlikely to take offense If hla city la run down In hla hear- Ini'. Not ao the ordinary Philadelphian: he can* not endure criticism of the Quaker City, and you can throw him into a regular c-vt-lron sweat at any lime by a few wild wnrcTa. They live well here. They hove comfortable houses, happy families, and all that should make home agreeable. Just aa much as have the people of New York. They love their wives, or the wives of other men, very much aa do the New Yorkers; they have distin guished statesmen, eloquent divines, skilled burglars, accomplished cabmen, gifted lawyers, and whole stores full of rcudy-mtde clothing; and why they should feet so sore alwut New York la a conundrum 1 must surrender. TUB SUHL’RDS OF TUB QUAKER'CITT. I know of no city in the Union that can boast of firclticr suburb* than this. The country surround* tig Philadelphia Is charming In the extreme, aud Uie people have every reason to be proud of It. I have taken two driven to and beyond F&lrmount Pork, through the lovely Volley or the Wlsnohldc* on, and I solemnly over that it Is very hard to find on pretty a npot near o great city. The stream rolls along a rocky bed in the midst of o forest primeval; and, were It not for the broad road and the car riage mr ages whirling along, you need not stretch your imagination very far to |int your>ctf a hundred nr live nundred miles fromany human habitation. Von can hare several miles of this sort of drive, and yon have It varied at frequent intervals by glhn]Mtea of landscape that rival in beady the .famous rural scenery of England. Germantown Is a fa vorite residence for people whoso sards of life are nearer run out than their bunk-accounts, and you Mill find there scores and scores of houses that the best and most fastid ious of ns need nut hesitate to occupy. And the country all around Is equally pretty and adapted for the establishment of luxurious homes. It is not prettier than tho country along the Hudson, but you arc not obliged to go so for as on the shores of that river to And a comfortable spot that has not been taken up already. Fairmonnt Hark Is a gem In 1U way, If such a wide extent of field and forest, bill and valley can be called a gam; and the people might devote all their rime to Its praises without suylng too much. Central Park in New York dot s not conic ap to It, and, ns for Doston Common, it Isn’t worth mention in the same day. It is a thing of beauty, and without doubt will be a joy forever to every Philadelphian. Laurel-Hill Cem etery is a delightful burial-pliicc, and I have never beard of a single occnpunt complaining of Ids lot, or asking to be taken up and Inhumed elsewhere. It is full of shade-trees and monaments, and in more thickly inhabited than any other part of Philadelphia. Old people here are anxious to die In order that they may go to Laurel Hill to live, and young peo ple about to pass In their checks do so wlthentlru satisfaction when they think of Laurel Hill und the gorgeous cavalcade that will escort them thither. They have nice hearses aud other funeral equip ages here, and, If a man has monev enough to puy the bill, tic can have a silver door-plntc nbd knobs on his coffin, and be carried away to the cemetery In fine stylo. They don't do things by halves In this city. A BURDAT COMPROMISE. As a partial concession to the desire to have the Exhibition open on Sunday, the Commission an nounced yesterday that the chime of bells In Machinery Hall would play this afternoon, so that the crowds outside could listen aud fed that they were having some part of tho affair. It was further announced that they would playeacred music only, so that those who had expected tho strains of Gounod nr Offen bach were likely to be disappointed. 1 doubt it you could induce the most secular hand-organ in tho world to pluy anything but sacred music on tho seventh day of the week in Philadelphia. If It should venture to do otherwise. It would be arrest ed aud lined, or perhaps It would get three mouths on bread and water. The playing of the chimes on Sunday is a concession to the public demand, and wo may look for something mure in course of time. Who can predict the day when the gales will be opened at &0 cents each admission, and we can take our Sunday in good, honest sight-seeing? My season-ticket Is good for but one admission dally, and every morning, when 1 enter, the on- 3 raved date is punched. 1 observe that nil the ays of tho month were engraved on the plate from which tho ticket was printed; and so I conclude that tbo engraver, or the man who ordered the en graving, know what bo was about, and that Uto place was to be opened on Sunday by-and-by. TUI! ItBSTAUILUm arc now run at fair prices, and there is no particu lar cause of complaint, unless it be that at tho French Itcstaurnnt they make an extra charge of 10 cents for “ service." This custom is English, and not French; on tho Continent everywhere you are charged for service lu the iiplcls, but 1 have never known them to do so in a restaurant. This custom i» reserved for England, and a very mean swindle it seems to an American. For example: arcAtan raut advertises a dinner for three shillings without wine. You go there, take the dinner ana a bottle of ale, and. when you are through, a little note la brought with these Items: “Dinner, three shil lings; beer, sls-ponco; attendance, four-pence." This has not been mentioned hi the advertise tisement, and yon feel that you have been beaten out of four-pence. You par the amount, and vow that you will not go to that place again. You patronize another restaurant next day, and find that they play the aamc trick. The French lies* tanrant, in adopting iJils trick, has borrowed from the much-hated English; there maybe restaurants in Prance that make a separate charge for service, but, In several visits there, I do not roinemberany. You pay the waller what yon like; it is purely a matter of option, though ft Is always expected, and you would be considered mean or dissatisfied If you should give nothing to the waiter. Hat, in the present case, tho semes is exacted by the pro prietor, and you aro still expected to give some thing to tho waiter. T. W. K. LETTERS FROM TUB PEOPLE. CmCtTMLOCDTIOH EXTRAORDINARY. To th* Editor of The Tribune. Chicago, May 23. Enter with me a police sta tion and examine: First— Tho book in which all nuisances and vio- lations of the laws of tho Hoard of Health are en tered, that are met by tho policeman on his beat, and which he reports*) the station-keeper. The etatlon-koeper will toll you that tho sanitary policeman calls daily and copies these reports. Second—. Another book will bo shown you in which the officer reports all waste of water, burst ing and leakage of water-pipes, etc., which report is sent every morning to the Superintendent of the Hoard of Police, and ny him to tho Superintendent of the Hoard of Politic Works. TAlrd—Another dully report Is made to the Su perintendent of Police of all lamps which have not been lighted daring the previous night, whilst still ■till another report of all broken lamps is made to tlie same officer three times a month. Fourth— A hook in kept in which every broken and defective sidewalk of tho precinct Is entered; and this report la also sent dally to the Superln tundent of the Hoard of Police, who transfers It to the Hoard of Public Works. j We thus ascertain that the police are performing duties which tbe public generally credit to other branches of tho public service. A few questions addressed to tho men, in con nection with tbe cost of the uniform, Its wear and tear during active service, the extra risk of (heir duties, etc., willbo useful, for It is true economy to pay a public servant tbe Jutf value of his ser vices. Justice. “ NATIONAL ANTIPATHIES.” To the Editor of The Tribune. CmoAoo, May S3.—Your recent editorial on "National Antipathies” was a welcome sign of our time. lu thanking you for endeavoring to set the different nations right before their dlslikera, permit me to add Just one point. Ever since I have lived In America I hear from every one, who bos not been lu Germany, that tbe Germans are infidels “by a large majority." This Is not only not true, bat every traveled American will concede that tbe Germans as a claas are pre eminently religious, while Americans are pre-emi nently strict church-memhcrs. SUM, whosoever cannot tell the difference between one and tho oth er. has no right to talk against one or the other. Id Germany, as a rule, the religions people go to church ami tbe non-religioua don't; hero thu majority of church-goers stteud service fur fash lull's »al:e, and in the course of time almost only fashionable people go to church. Although Ger many enjoys the reputation of being tho land of rank ami nobility, yon will on Sunday find the Heron of a village attend the same church in com mon with the humblest laborer on his farm. Just chance to i«ep into thu meekest church in Ger many; listen to the full chorus of the whole con gregation. singing one of the powerful hymns, and compare that with tbe paid ‘ ‘ concertos " of Italian opera style In our churches hero, and then ask where you find moat religion. Yours respectful- TUB ROGERS BAIL CASK. TO the Editor of The Tribune.

May sy.— lowa Republicans ;d with the “favorite-son” Des Moines, la., re somewhat affect* mania, and it will probably manifest Itself here at the Ktute Convention next week. There are sev eral “favorite suns” talked of, who are con sidered worthy of a second place on the Presiden tial ticket; and It is quite possible they will some of them turn np in the National Convention. Mr. Ulainc stands very prominent with the Republic ans of this State, the population of lowa being largely composed of New England peo ple, whose habits and associations are strongly identified with that section: but they alto recogulxc in Mr. Bristow a person who bos filled bis official trust with great fidelity, and, above ail, as a man of Incorruptibility. This in dorsement is growing steadily and surely. That the beet interests of the party may be subserved, it is not probable Uiat the lowa delegates to the National Convention will be instructed. A CROOKED LAWYER. S. T. Jones, of llopkinton. Delaware County, a few days ago suddenly vacated; and, since. various banks uave discovered that they are the victims of forged checks to tlu? amount of several thousand dollars. He had the confidence of the people, and used it to tsako good his losses at poker. A I.ITTLB TOUOU. At Clermont, a few days ago, a boy named Will* iam McQnllUrt, lets than If years of age, waa knocked down by the,wheel of a wagon on which ten barrels of sugar ami one barrel of simp, and the wheel passed over UU body just above the hips, lie was flattened like a pancake: but in three days woa about his play as If nothing had happened. CIVIL RIOUT9. Keokuk. the metropolis of the 'Democratic stronghold In this Mule. baa struggled against the Civil Itlghls bill) until she has at laal been forced to yield to the inevitable. She refused to allow colored children to attend the public schoole with white children. The mutter was taken to the Courts, and, by the decision of the Supreme Court in two canes, the Hoard of Directors were com pelled to open the doors to colored children. An attempt was mode to ovade the spirit of the law by establishing a separate school for colored children: but the pride of custe lias yielded to the draft on the pocket, the separate school bafrbeen abandon ed. and tho last remnautof “other days” has gone out in lowa. PERILS OP nOUSB-CLBAKINO. -A clergyman Incoming, the other day, Joined in marriage a highly-cstimable couple. Tho stotutes of this State require the officiating marrlcr to make return of the same to the Clerk of the Circuit Court within a certain date thereafter, under pen alty of a fine of SSO. The certificate was made out, and laid aside for a more convenient season to be Hied In the court. In the meantime, the preacher’s wife wob seized with house-cleaning fever. When It had subsided, the certificate couldnothcfound. —- It having probably gone Into the stove with waste paper ami rejected sermons. Here was a dilemma; the recorded certificate Is the only record evidence of marriages. To be sure, the preacher might remarry the couple: but would the second marriage certificate, under Its date, cover contingencies which might arise? And here let me say that the time is coming when the litigation in this State which will arise in conse quence of neglect of persons solemnizing mar riages, mostly ministers, will be heavy and expen sive. In every such case, the rights of heirs to estates are involved. Unless the certificate Is re turned and recorded, no official record of the mar riage exists, and the marriage can only be proven by living witnesses, which will not be easily done a few years after tho marriage. There is probably not a county In the Stale where scores, and even hundreds, of marriages snd estates are not im periled by this neglect: and so important a viola tion of duty should call for the enforcement of the full penalty upon each delinquent; and. farther, persons getting married should see to it that their certificate Is returned to the Uourt-Clerk, or knows the reason why. A DOUBLE RB9PIRATOR. Daniel Jones, residing near Llnevillo, has for several years been the victim of tubercular con sumption.

The other day ho took the wheat to mill, and it was not until tho wheat was ground that he remembered his S3OO In greenbacks. Uo wants hard money. In Atlantic, a few days ago. a gentleman was carelessly tossing a new silver dollar from one hand to the other, in tho presence of ladies, ouc of whom asked him to toss it to her, to see if she could catch IL lie gave It a toss, and It landed be tween her ueck and lace ruff, and went out of sight.
