Tbat portion of the police force represented by Sergeant Gunfl aim bis active squad of men whose U(toilers arc at North Avenue Sab-Station, were on Friday night puccetsful to brloplog to Justice one of a nett of scamps engaged In theneiarloas business ol counterfeiting, within one hour after a complaint «as lodp- d at tbe station. Tbo cur cmni«iance» in connection with the affair, so far aa they have been rath’red, are nesrlf_sj fallows: About eight o’clock on Friday crating a young man giving the name of William Howard, an en gineer, residing on Klozle street, went to the grocery store of Eugene Dally, at No. USHarlbut sued, wbero he called for some candles. Alter they were pat up for him. be offered in payment a ten dollar note anon the Flour City National Bank of Rochester, New York, receiving la exchange $9.6-1 in good money. He then left the store, and was noxi seen at the gro cery of George Zcringable, situated at tbe corner of Mohawk and Linden streets. At this store : he loand some much coveted arti cles, but tin- merchant dll not like tbe bill pre sented, which was another nolo oi tbo same de nomination on the same bank as the one offered at DufiVri Bis patronage was, therefore, respect fully declined. In the meantime, Mr. Duffy bad satisfied himself beyond a doubt that the note he bad lecetved trom tne stranger was a coonterleU, aud be quickly reported it at North Avenue Sta tion. Correctly supposing that a persistent raid was being matte upon placer of business bysotno industrious person m "nhovlnc the queer. Ser geant Good at once put bu men on track ot the scamp, wi'b the happiest res nits. At toe grocery etore of a Ur. Dcttscb, located at the corner of Larabcc and Division streets, officer Hogan found Mr. Howard impatiently awaiting . the slow motions of a clerk who was doing up another pound of candles for his customer. Can dles seem to have been a weakness with Howard, nnd It is prtma facta evidence that he makes light of the cotfbterfeiuiig business. Another counter feit ten dollar bill lay noon tbe counter trying to look honest and momentaiily expecting to pass Into tbe drawer in exchange for genuine green backs. Howard was in a burry as he was going to a ball, and would be late. When the officer came in and cast a glance at the tdmaUOD he knew his man. and “made for him ” at once. Howard started back ana attempt ed to jump though a window, at the same time making a half concealed motion in throwing away another of the tenuoUar bogus notes. Hogan had no Idea of losing hlsprisoner.andetraigbtivaT knocked him down, after which he secured and conveyed him to tbe But ton. Tbe prisoner had in his pockets a revolver and a bunch of keys. Ho drew the w< spon pari way from his pocket once, but Ibe motion was observed and be was thwarted in his blooey intention. Jhe spurious hank notes oQcred to the three tradesmen, as also tbo one cast upon the floor by illegality man, are all upon the Floor City na tional Bank, of Itochcster, New York, and each orars the same number, “Ti.&CS.” The bill oi feredaifrudy’e was meek better executed than either of the others, and for that reason was prob ably selected to test the success of tbe undertak ing. Ibis is farther corroborated by the fact, as afterwards remembered by panics In tbe store, ibai two men were standing outside when Howard was trading, and tlat upon going out he joined them, and tbe three went away together. Tbe purported signature of the President, upon tbo-c bills, in ibe lower right hand comer is very black and coarsely done, and that of the cashier is writ ten with miserable ink, leaving a very indistinct impression. It may be safely presumed that this id an outcropping of an extensive gang of coon terfeltvre, for whose depredations the public should actively on tbe lookout. Howard was examined at the Police Court on Satnrday mom lug, and hold lor trial In ball of $3,000. DEPIIATIir. Dissipation aao Crime—Small Forgery.

Not content with blaming him, upon very- InsuUlclenl evidence, lor floflcleucy in quail* ilea to which ho luht no api-clai claim, and Ibr hit Irjurious action in demoralizing young people by pages which he never meant them to read. Indignant censors, whose lives do not quality them to atone sinners, arc often beard to condemn him for faults that cannot be lolrly laid at his door. The “Letters,” no doubt, contain many precepts that arc dangerous, and sonic that are abominable. Coming irom a Wilier who lived in times when thuChristiau virtics were out of fashion, and in a class tbat knew nothing about self-sacrifice or high purpose, they reded the frivolity and t-cififehnces oi a vicious and faithless period. Dnoucttionably a man might realize Chcs* tcrlield’s Ideal of a perfect gentleman so faros that ideol can bo ascertained from ibo cpls* lies, and yet conceal beneath his veneering of refincmect tbe viler wood oi which libertines, ruffians' and sneaks aro made. All this may bo granted; and yet it is impossible to believe that Chesterfield was tho unami&bio and heartless crea ture that tbo caricaturist would have us believe him. The man who made the art of pleasing his continual study may have been marked by meanness and wicked pro pcusilics, by vanity and love ot self; but be must have possessed many lovable qualities. Again, the kuowd tacts of bis domestic life disprove the accusation of heartlcssness. Tho . very “Letter*” which supply tho materials for tho charge are are also its re futation. The utTcctionate Solicitude which they display for a sun—the offspring of a dishonorable and sinfhl connection, a son vrhomeveu kindly men would have dis owned . without compunction so long as they provided for bis education and prosperous outset in a bumble way of life—is conclusive proof that he was a mao of tenderness and true feeling os well asof taste and accomplishments. Bow many fathers who exclaim against Chesterfield's immo rality do as much for their lawful heirs? So aUo, in old age—when natures that in their }<nth auepmne maoiltsted generoua Impul siveness are too often nipped or the frost of morosity and discontent—he displayed the same paternal fondness, took simitar trouble, for his godson and dL-tant kinsman, Philip Stanhope, the little lellow who inherited his wealth and honor. Even the disap pointment which ho experienced from the buomhness and nnfillal conduct of his ille gitimate ton did n« t take from him the po»cr and inclination to busy himself about the nurture and happiness of the little boy to whom he addressed the let ter* on “ The Art of Pleasing.” When re membrance Is made of the scandalous rela tions that notoriously existed in the eight eenth century between fathers and sous,lords in ppssessiou and next heirs, within the high est clicks of English society, it is not too much to say that, at least in one respect. Chesterfield was a model oi virtue os well as of politeness to his contemporaries. Moreover, it we undertook to write Cbes itfffleld’s vindication, we should say much about the usefulness and beneficial conse quences of his example in an age when men of rank could openly violate rnles cl decency without losing social caste, when sots could be men of fan, and people of quality were often prodigies of boister ous vulgarity. Chesterfield’s pea did something for as in producing a collection of epistles firm which every student of literature derives enjoyment. But he did far more for bis own time and the next bnn Orcd years in reclaiming high society from a state of tavern savagery, and In giving ns a school of manners which, notwithstanding Us mannerism and obvious artificiality, has not been followed by a better. What man of the world docs not experience gratifica tion on encountering one of those lew men of the retiring generation who can ho stately wiihoot displaying hauteur, cordial without making noisy demoostra t one of friendliness, urbane to inferiors with out a suggestion of condescension, calm to equals, hat la no degree frigid, complaisant to those greater than themselves, but never obsequious? These courtly and thorough gentlemen, yearly becoming more rare, are usually spoken of as “ men of the old school,” though It would be niote correct to call ibem “mm of Chesterfield’s school and such Is the charm of their exhilarating graclousneca that wc never meet them without gladness, and never part from them without a sigh for the repulsive iciness of the new mode. -THE TJMTEU STATES SENATE.

[from the Philadelphia Press.] This order waa Instituted In ISO 3 by the first Napoleon, with the double purpose of cheaply attaching the bravest men-of tbe French army to himself, personally, and of preparing the way for the abolition of re publican simplicity and the restoration of monarchical rule and a nobility. It was bestowed largely for civil as wellaa military merit, and soon popularized personal dis tinction. It flourished during tbe Empire; was continued, though reduced, by tbe Bourbons after the restoration, ana was so largely used by Louis Philippe that Figaro sain the Frenchman who bad not a cross of the Legion In bis family deserved to bo shown ih a glass case as a curiosity. During the Presidency of Louis Napoleon tho order was altered and improved. Fort of Louis Phil ippe’s property, which bad been restored to the State, was set apart for tbe endowment of the Legion. Tbo cross is now conferred aider restrictive conditions. In time of peace, it requires twenty years of eminent services in civil or military functions to quality for membership. In time of war, acts of valor aud serious wounds. But, oven In time oi peace, extraordinary and voluablc services of any kind may quality lor the honor. In the time of Louis Philippe there were, ofllcers Included, nearly seventy thousand persons wearing tho Cross of tho Legion. There has lat terly been a creation oi only one member for every two who have died, but this rule has not beet) absolutely observed, because circumstance? may sometime* war rant a decoration. In 18WI, after the Crimean war, and In IBM), alter tho Italian war, tho Cross of the Legion was largely distributed. Usually, It Is nwatdcd only twice a year— tho Emperor’s fete day being one. Women are eligible to receive It} sun, indeed, much in* Iciest w*s created not long ago by tho Km* piers Kugculo personally decorating Uosit Panhcur, the eminent painter, with the I.culon Cross Worn by herself. At tho end of IkV., the Legion oflloiiur was composed of OU giand crum os, IKfl giand officers, 1,080 com mandors, 4, R10 othcors, and 4H,fKRI chevaliers. The numbers are not much greator now, ho. Ina RO.UIO. What most particularly attracted our at* tcntlon when mustering these details, was that tho Legion of Honor is very largely represented in the Frouch Legislature. There are libtienators, Including French Princes, each of whom holds hi* appointment for ilie, with a salary of SO,OOO a year, and each of these belongs to the Legion of Honor. In the Corps Legislat it there are 383 members (one to every 35,000 voters), and 2-10 ot these • are decorated with tho Legion of Honor. The President of that chamqor Is a Knight Grand Cross. There are nine grand ofllcers, twenty-seven commanders, nine ty-nine officers, and one hundred uud fourteen simple knights. Thirty deputies do not belong to the order: but some ot these have the Piedmontese order of Bt. Maurice and St. Lazare. These thirty-one aic headed by M. Berryer, and cod with M. Edouard Fould and M. Eugene Perrier, who :>rc still too yonng for tbo honor. Twenty live oi the unoccorated members belong to tho opposition. Six deputies of the depart ment of the Seine are non-decorated; the other three arc M. M. Thiers, Jules Simon aud Dacmion; but tbe last-named is the only «>no of tbo three who received hla decoration Horn the existing Government. M. Thiers, the hUtonau, received his grand cross of tbe Legion of Honor from Louis Philippe over thirty years ago. Tho wearing of abit of red ribbon in the second button-bole on tho left ride intimates that the person carrying It is a member of tho Legion of Honor. There urc more ways of killing a dog, says a Span ish proverb, than by poisoning, him; and so there are other means of weakening opposi tion In the Corps Legislate than by giving money for a member’s vote. In Walter ScotUs “ Qucntine Durward,” wbero Pbllln dcs Comlnca refuses a golden bribe, but Is sou over to tbe side of Cuarles of Burgundy, by some soft words, Louis tbe Eleventh Is made to laugh at him after he retires, sarcastically matter ing to himself, “ And he thinks him self virtuous because he took no bribe, but contented himself with flattery and promises, yud tbe pleasure or avenging aa affront to bis vanity I Why, he is just so much the poorer for tbo refusal or indtuoncy, not a jot the more honest.” Precisely thus must Louis Napoleon, who knows human nature well, lauen in his sleeve at the fact tbat 250 nut 0f283 members of tho popular branch of tbe Legislature wear his badge of the Le gion, and that of tbe opposition, only thirty one ore not thus “"honored.” It is the tashion in France to speak contemptuously of this decoration, but it is tho prac tice to intrigue, work, marmuvre for <t, and proudly exhibit It when obtained. The new membetlis always known by bis -.Ycariog the cross os ostentatiously as possi i.k-; the veteran possessor simply wears a :itllc bit of ribbon. Sucb decorations, which abound all over Europe, and were numerous in tbe petty German States, constitute a cheap way of rewording such public servi ces and hocoriug personal merit such as mere money could never supply; also, of at taching the recipient to tbe sideof the donor uy the tie of gratitude; for tbo decoration, though nominally from the country, actu ally proceeds from tbe ruler. (From the New York Evening Gazette.] One of the most novel, simple, Ingenious and at the same time beautiful inventions which has ever been given to the world, is the recent application of mechanics to tbe fine arts, known as photosculpturc. M. Wll leme, a french artist, conceived the idea of bringing photography to tbe aid of sculp ture, so that by an easy mechanical process busts, medallions and statues as perfect as a photograph can make them can he produced n whatever size desired, from the smallest medallion cut upon a lady’s finger ring or brcast-pln to the colossal statue for a monu ment or park. This invention has proved a complete triumph, having been successfully practiced in Paris since 1903. The patent right tor England has been "hold to a company in London fora fabulous earn, and a New Voik firm is just introducing it to the Amer ican public. The name of Mr. Wlllemo will soon become as celebrated and familiar os that of Da guerre. Hchas placed bustsaadstafuesstrik mgly perfect and of exquisite finish within ihe reach of all, doing for tbe people with bis phototculptnrc what tbe latter did with bis sun picture, or daguerrotypes, as for an ordinary photograph, tud Instead of a plain ■roof on glass or paper, you receive your lust, statue, cr medallion In any form, shape or size yon desire. In Paris the statue which you sit for in the mornicgls delivered at night perfectly fin ished. The same thing will soon he done In New York. Peter Cooper was turned out on Monday. Admiral Farragut on Tuesday, and to-day Horace Greeley Is being immortalized in a statuette. There is but one machine In oj>eration now, hut fifty will soon bo needed to meet the demands. Over fifteen thousand dollars'worth of work has already been or dered, and customers will be served in regu lar rotation. Age. Tbe first room visited In the process of pro ducing a piece of statuary after this new and novel method Is called the rotunda. This Is a circular room, twenty-six feet in diameter, at the top of the boose, wltha conical celling <>r roof composed entirely of glass. In the exact centre of tbe room Is a circular dais or platlonn, four or five feet In diameter, which can be raised or lowered at pleasure; this Is about six Inches blgta, and Is called the “register.” The top of the platform is cut like a pie by black lines, crossing each other through the centre. Into twenty-foor pieces, slices, or degrees; these degrees are regis tered ornumbered upon the sides or circum ference of the platform or register with large black flgnrcs, from one to twenty-fbur. Coming from the centre of the celling is a rod with a ball attached, which bangs suspended directly over tbe centre oi the register. Tbe imaginary Upe which may be supposed to ran from the centre of the ball to tne centre of the plat form or register is called by the artists tbe '•line of departure.” The person who Is to sit for Ids bust or stand for a statue Is placed upon the register, the “median line” of the body corresponding exactly with the “line of departure.” The term “median line,” a hlch la so extensively used by anatomists, may be explained, perhaps, by calling It that Use which Is perpendicular with the centre of gravity, let the body be in whatever posi tion It may. Arranged around the entire cir cumference of tbe room, equally distant irom each other, are twenty-foor corners, the tpace between each corner corresponding to one of the degrees on tbe register. A line drawn from the centre or fbcus of tbe lens of one camera across to tbe centre of the exactly opposite camera wonld precisely correspond wlixi one of the lines drawn across the register, cutting it in the centre. These twenty-four cameras are all on a level with each other, and all produce the same steed picture, They|are also of that height from the floor which corresponds nearly with the centre of the person who Is to be photo graphed. Iftne centre of tbe body is above o>- below the focus of the camera the register ran be adjusted so as to meet the case. Tbe twenty-four cameras are stationary in the walls of the rotudaa, and all open into a dark gallery which tuns entirely around the romnda. Twenty-four gloss sen sitive plates are prepared, and one Is put Into each camera \ tbe covers of tbe whole twen four cameras are so arranged with cords and pulleys that they can be opened and shut with the simultaneous*]ess of clock-work. Everything now being In readiness, tbe man having assumed upon the register tbe posi tion he wishes to occupy In the marble (think -of being turned into stone I) the twenty-four uo eras around the whole circumference of the rotunda fly open and in an instant close again. The man can now take np his hat aid cane and wait home—he has performed his part of tbe work. The artist now has twenty-five small steed photographs of tbe lndlvidualj*ipon glass plates, each one ofwhich shown picture of THE HEW AUT. Pliotoftculptnre. NUMBER 247. the person from a different position, the an* gle being one twenty.fonrth part or a circle. The whole two dozen pictures taken in com bination give the complete circumference of tbe sitter, back, sides, and fitce, from the frill lace round to the full face again. Look ing at tbe pictures in rotation, from one to twenty-four, to the same in fact as waiting around the IndindnaT wouJffhe, and looking at him from twenty-four different stand points. Thus we bavea complete picture ot tbe entire person, with every Ibid In the dress from head to foot. Now, it to cosy to see that if a point of connection can be found by which all these twenty*lonr pic tures can be brought into ooc, and transfer red to clay, the result will be a. likeness of the sitter as accurate as could be produced by the photograph. This to the very thing which has been accomp ished by tbe inven Uon of M. Willeme. Each picture as it i taken, as a matter of course, registers upon tbe glass plate the number of the degree, o angle of the sitter which It represents: thus number one picture may bo a directly fril front view of tbe man, then number two will be one twenty-fourth of the way round, and accordingly represents a partial side view, while a fourth of the way round, or number six, would represent a lull side view, and half way round, or number twelve, would give a direct back view. Tbe numbers on tbe glassplates or photo graphs correspond with the numbers printed upon the register. Each picture baa a repre sentation of the balL which hangs directly over tbe head of tho utter, both on the plat- Ibrm and In the picture. Now a lino drawn from tbe ballln the picture totbo number at tho foot of the plate corresponds exactly with tho median line, or centre of gravity of the body, nod to therefore to bo the me dlan Unc. or “point of departure” for tho statue. The artist takes these twenty-four glass plates, and with a flno steel point draw-fa line through tho centre of each pic ture, from the ball to tbe Dumber at tho fool. In doing ibis ho removes a part of the preparation on the plate, ami if it was held up to the sun, a One white lino would bo seen running through the centre of tho picture. Tbu twcnty*four pictures on gloss aro all very small, perhaps not more tlian two laches In length. The sitter wishes a statuette one* fourth tho size otllfo. We wilt say ho Is a man sit feet tall: (ben the statuette must be eighteen Inches high. To accomplish this It la necessary that tbo photograph from which the clay Is to bocut should bo twteo the lUO of Ihcstaluette, hence they must bo enlarged from the original two Inches to thlrtr*slx Inches, or Imif-llfo slr.o. This Is done by pul* Unit the glass plates Into a solar camera and magnifying tho picture until It Is of Uio right slr.o upon the papu* upon which It Is thrown Tlio picture on the glass plate having been thrown upon n shoot of wlilto paper In this mngnlllcd condition, It Is a very easy matter for an artist to sketch all tho outlines of It with a lend pencil, Ho draws tho profile of tho (lice, tho outlines of all tho features, cv cry fold In tho clothes, tho buttons, shoulder* straps, etc. When he has completed hts task there aro twonty-lour of these outline sketches, each one of which represents tho individual Irom a different angle, tho same ns the original glass plates did. These sketches aio halfllfb blzu,ur thlrty-slx Inches long 5 If tho statue is to he half luu size, tho pictures roust be full life site, and so on In tho same proportion. Having got tho twenty-fonr models from which the pantograph or moulding machine Is to cut the statue,wo descend to tho mould* lug room. An Iron dais, with a brass regis ter around the circumference, numbered off into twenty-fonr degrees, tbo exact counter part of tbo register In tho rotunda, but much reduced In size, being, perhaps, only a foot in diameter, is placed upon a table and made to revolve by means of cog wheels and a baud crank. An iron rod runs np through the centre of the dais, and Is the '‘lino of de parture” round which the statuette U to be built or cut. It corresponds with the median line, or centre or gravity of the body, aad is the same line which hae been drawn through the centre of all tho pictures, tbo largo lead pencil sketches, as well as the small glass photographs. The artut beans np a mass of clay arotmo the Iron rod, as high as the statuette Is td be, and In diameter largo enough to contain It. Number one sketch of the gentleman who Is to he produced In plaster ot Paris la fastened up on a plane surface at the right of the moulding table. A large brass panto graph is suspended In front of the moulding table,'one arm of which Is made to pass over the first surface of the outlines or tbo pic ture, while the other coulains a sharp needle or a clay saw, as the ease may be, which reaches to the clay. Whenever a movement is made by one arm of the pantograph over the picture a corresponding movement takes place with the needle or saw In the other arm, and tho clay la cut away accordingly. The Invention of Mr. WlUcmc consists la combining the twenty -four pictures, more or less, In such manner as to produce with the E autograph astatne. There Is a regular order i which tho pictures arc used. Wo will *uy>po,o tti« ArtUt ta.fc.oa plalnr* Bnra)M>p. nt>«. which gives a directly front view ot the man. It follows, then, that the outlines of this pic ture represent the piofile of the sides of the head, face, neck, shoulders, arms, legs, «&c. Now, 11 the arm of the photograph is moved over these outlines the other arm will giro the same outlines In the clay. Turn the clay mass one quarter of the way round, and put np picture number six, which represents a direct side view of the man in outline, giving the form of tbo fore head, nose, mouth, chest, etc., in front; the back of the head, buck, etc., bchiud. If one arm of the photograph is passed over these cm lines, the other arm produces the same effect upon the clay, and thus the statuette begins to assume the form of the original. By the time the whole twenty-four pictures have been gone over In this manner, the result upon the clay Is roandness and portraiture, and the features and form of Che individual stand out in an exact proportion, which it is Impossible for the most skilful artist to ob tain. The great difficulty of proportion, features, position, character, etc., which re quires so many months and hard study af ter the o?d method is oil overcome by this simple process. It takes bat a few hours to ent out the statue with the pantograph, It takes less time to draw the pictures, and but an instant to take the twenty-four original photographs on gloss, two men being able to operate the rotunda. So far, all the process is purely mechanical, and cveiythlneis gained for art by 51. Wille mc’s ingenious invention. Alter the panto graph has done Us work, the bust or statue is submitted to the bands of an artist or sculptor, who carefully goes over the details. This work Is nothing compared with what has been done, and It takes but a little time to dig out the corners of the eyes, separate the hair, put on the finger nails, shape the buttons of the coat, and make a wrinkle here and there. It Is perfect fun for a sculptor to do such work as that, mere play by the eidcof that which bos been done.

But men who arc believed beiurchand to be eloquent will advance their reputation by preserving silence. “sly German friend, how long have you been married? “ Veil, dat Is a ting vot I scl dora don’t Like to talk about,but ven I docs, It seems so long as never ras.” An old bachelor, being laughed at by a party of pretty girls, told them, ** You are small potatoes.” “We may bo small pota toes,” cried one of them, “ but we ore sweet ones.” Taxing Usvbt. —On a certain occsslon,|a noted infidel borrowed money from the late Dr. Lathrop, of West Springfield, Maas. When he came to pay U, be thought to pose tbe Doctor with an argument from the Bible. “You ought not to take Interest for this money, for the Jews were forbidden to take usury.” “Oh, no,” said the Doctor, “you lorget; the Jews were Indeed permitted to take It ol the heathen!” The application tu tco direct to be mis taken, and the man was quite willing to mop the argument and pay the money. Antrci. Piett. —A nice young man, a lit* tic worldly minded, walked to church once with a very pious young lady. Arrired at the church door, worldly minded young man declined entering. Whereupon pious young lady seized bis hat, and, placing it under her cloak, called Into church, leaving the worldly minded young man standing at the door, xnlnns his hat. The last heard of worldly minded young mam be was wending his way down the church aisle as demurely as If nothing bad happened. They have a Judge Id the Blue Bldge Cir cuit, Georgia, named Brown, who not only administers justice In a dignified and Impar tial manner, but Is likewise a bit of a wag'ln his way, as witness the following manuorin which he “done brown*' a Juror : While hearing a case recently, the attorney stated In his plea, that he believed one of the jurora was Intoxicated. The Judge, ad dressing the man alluded to. said: “Sir, are you drunk ? The juror straightened him self up. In a bold, half-dcflant tone,and said: “No, Slr-re-hob I” “Well.” said the Judge. “I fine you five dollars for the ‘ re/ and ten for the *hob.’” The juror “ wilted.” A Docr.x Expressed. —One Sabbath after noon, a Sunday School teacher observed two boys playing at marbles by the roadside- He stopped and told them how wicked it was, and succeeded in persuading the wickedest one to accompany him to school. The lad was decidedly a last youth, of about eight years. In the class, among other things, the teacher told him that “ God made this beau tiful world, and all that was In It; we must thank him for the good things we enjoy. He gives us food, and our clothes.” “Does he give me my clothes, too?” asked the lad. , , , „ “•Yes; he gives us everything.” “Now, that’s where you got your eyes shut up: for mam made these trowsers out of dad’s old ones.” Ertaxtax.

Some surprise was ex pressed that Mr. Monroe should hare been-a facetious man. The story runs something, thus; A Scotch servant, employed about the Executive mansion, who bad a broad accent and a good fund of cold humor, had been charged, by certain persons who bad a pro jected monument in honor of something or somebody, with a message to an appropriate official, woo. It seems,was not the President. But old Sandy sought the Chief Magistrate, In whose personal servire ho was, and con veyed tbe communlcnti.i.- La him. Mr. Mon roe Instructed him u> uddtess the message elsewhere, and ’hereupon S*»:dy,persisting like a Scotchman, said, “■Tour honor, it to about the monument.” “Well, Sandy.” re plied Mr. Monroe, drawing himself np erect and symmetrical, “don’t yoo ace, lam not the mon you nwonf.” JXednetton la JProssttotloa ia Row York city.

It to expected, also, that the Sanitary Depart ment ofthe Boardof Health will have are port In readiness at the meeting of Thurs day. The police authorities again unite in tho opinion of the most of those who have exam ined the subject, that this evil cannot he wholly eradicated by statutes, and that Its regulation to tho most that can bo effected at present. The Commissioners will make cer tain recommendations, among which tho fol lowing arc perhaps the moat Important: 1. That overy person plying the trade of a J ’restitute shall bo licensed, any person vlo* ailog this requirement to bo subject to a heavy tine or Imprisonment. This require ment must effect a great reduction In (ho number of public lewd woman, there being many now pursuing this calling who would be unwilling to put themselves on record as public and avowed prostitutes. 2. That any propcrly.owticr leasing any building for pur poses of prostitution shall ho subject to a line of not less than ffiOO (probably for cacti lltno complaint Is made and proved against tho house.) The ITtpxlcnii Miaul Dance. In certain Parisian ballots there is Intro* duccd a lO'CAlk-d ilmwl dance, (he effects being produced by the graceful waving* of thaw I* and scarfs. Ily tho late accounts Mom Mexico It would appear that President Juarez has participated in a not dMmilar festivity. His recent Journey from Chllnm* him to Durango led him through a number ofthe smaller towns of Mexico, wheru the people, Impoverished hv war, were unable to provide the means to build triumphal arches and expensive drapery, by way of ox* pressing their enthusiasm at his arrival: so the women ol the town collected all their gnyly colored shawls, and with them adorned Ibcli houses and balconies somewhat In tho old Venetian style. A simitar incident was witnessed (n our own country at the time ol President Liu* coin’s death, when black veils aad shawls served In tho poorer country districts as mourning drapery. Juarex passed along these shawl-decked streets like a triumphal couqucror. lu every village banquets were prepared and genuine welcome was ready. Ills whole party com prised less than a hundred people, and bo could hare been easily captured by Impe rialist troops bad any been In that vicinity. It seems highly probable that the Mexican President will continue his shawl dance un molested until he gracefully pirouettes luto Mexico City Itsell. Whnlwc Breathe In Crowded Theatres* Some one has been making an analysts lately of the air we breathe m a theatre or other close house, containing a thousand or more persons. He carried into a theatre, at ten o’clock at night, a bottle of tee, placed on a plate, and then collected the vapor, which rapidly condensed on the outside of the bottle and flowed down on to the plate. At Urat this vapor thus collected had the smell, the taste, aud, so far as could be de termined, every chemical quality belonging to the waters ot the most deadly fever marshes. Under the microscope this water was at first clear, but soon, that is to say In a week, it was ioond to bo full of fine ant malcnke. A little later on these anlmalcnl® had grown, and the big ones were seen pur suing and devouring the little ones. Still later on, at the end of two mouths, the water was thick with anlmalculae, various forms were seen, and still the work of destruction was going on. At last, but three hideous monsters were seen—microscopic monsters, of course, since they were contained In a -gap ofwater—an d these were still fighting the end of three monCbsYhe wafer oeeame clear and miasmatic again. Bests in New York. [From the New York World, February 5.] For the gratification ofstorc-kecpers It may tic said tbat the probability la that there will be*a lull In the price ol this class or rentals. In and orunod Wall street there will be but little dllTerence. Brokers’ cilices now vary from $2,000 to $4,000 per annum. The Board ol Broken pay $£5,000 per year for their chamber, which is 70x50 feet. The Trinity Building, on Broadway, next to Trinity church yard Is now rented for the enormous sum of (180,000, or over eighty-five percent on its cost. The rent of a sccond'ciass office here is (1,000. The building was erected In 1852, at a cost of (200,000, and when opened let for about (30.000 per year. Of course no reduction is anticipated in the cose ol such buildings as these ; and all the stores on Broadway and others of the principal streets will probably be let nothing below the present rates. Bat the rents of small retail houses will, no doubt, come down. tWWAIT ÜBOTUEKS.
