AS A corrective The question of flogging, as a part of the school system, has lately been discussed in our city, and we see from our exchanges that it !«the subject of discussion in other cities. Here, as elsewhere, the subject comes -up periodically, just as does that of hydropho bia, or the odors of Bridgeport. Occasion* ally a dog goes mad, bites a hoy, the boy sutlers fearful agonies and dies; public in dignation is excited, and forthwith all no muzzled dogs are killed. Occasionally a teacher, afflicted with moral rabies, in flicts a brutal punishment upon a child in the public schools; the public arc justly indignant, there arises a fierce discussion upon the subject of flogging, and in time, unless the child dies, the matter dies out until the next case arises. Now the proper way of preventing hydrophobia Is to make it the permanent law fbr the police to kill all dogs they find at large, whether muzzled or not; and the best mode of preventing bar barity In the public schools is to prohibit ccrporal punishment entirely. l\ is a remarkable fact that in a majority of eases cf excessive corporal punishment In flicted In our public schools, the victims arc not only of tender years, but of slight phys ical strength; ard it is no less remarkable that the castlgators arc generally women. ■Women, and especially young., women, read Byron at some stage of their existence, and it !s pos'i We that they adopt the advice giv en them by that naughty gentleman iu one of hi* naughty poems, wherein he says : *• Ob, ye! who teach the ingenuous yomb of'na tions— Holland, Fiance, England, Germany or Spaiu— I proy ye f.c*? them upon a'l occasion?, it meeds their morals: never mind the pain/' Toon" women are generally the most cruel la the punishment of the little beings placed under their charge. Why this Is so we do not know; and. If the records of the public schools of ibis city be overhauled, it will be found II at those who are regarded as “old maids** arc nri half so chargeable with se verity and cruelly as are those who nrc yc crg enough to have reasonable hopes that in thus they will hare children of their own. Jltri till* cruelly is not confined to the female teachers. Occasionally a Principal tries his baud at the business, and we have in our mind that some years ago there' was one of these men who thought nothing of kick ing bis pupils In the most brntal manner, or ot pitching them headlong down the stairs. There never was a more fitting subject for Karev than that man, and the enormity of hfs uTeiice may be judged when we state that even our conservative Board of Educa lion thought he was too severe In his disci plire,ard informed him that he might resign! Wc arc not disposed to nrcss the question whether roporal punishment ought to be wLclly abolished in the public schools; that is a question upon which there will always be argument, and as onr Board of Education Is evidently ou the side of flogging, we have no disposition to dispute the wisdom of that system, ol which the members arc doubtless examples. But there Is one ques tion of which there ought to be but one side, and that is the prohibition of cruel, excessive, barbarous and unusual punish ment. The teacher , male or female, who is guilty of such conduct is unfit for the office .of teacher, and should be dismissed with no more consideration or hesitation than is necessary to establish the fact. The administration of red pepper as a corrective ol bad habits; the lying of the arms at an elevation above Ibe head; the application ol the ferule upon the tips of the fingers; strik lug uprn the head with the ruler ; the appli cation of the rattan indiscriminately to all parts of the person, are means of punish ment, the employment ol which should be followed by tbc immediate dismissal of the teacher. Kicking and knocking down arc ah .mt as sensible means of correcting ahoy as they area horse; and teachers guilty of »>uch acts ought not to wait to be dismissed, but should at once inform the Board Of Edu cation of their coLsciousncss of being un fitted for the ofiicc of teachers, and lorth with resign. There is more of this cruelty practiced than h ever nnde public. It is a serious ihirgfora boy or girl to complain ; and tin re is many a child, and tinder ten years of ngc. who prefer* to hide the black and brubed upon his or her person from parents'eyes, than undergo the ordeal of a complaint, ol investigation, of an eventual whitewashing of the teacher, aud then a life of misery at the school. There was, tome years ago, a rule or regulation in the public schools whereby all offenders con tK-mncd lo corporal mmL'hmcnt were pnn l«licd privately in a room provided la each 1 school for that purpose. The absence of wilncsti'fi had i<s effects ; children came oat of these rooms bearing upon their persons the evidence of os great brutality as was ccer exhibited as the result of a ruffian as fault on Wells street. The regulation was abolished, and teachers were prohibited from Cogging except in the presence of witnesses.' We do not know what the rule Is now, but do not believe tbe tori arc-room has ever been reestablished- • Teachers arc required to report all cases of flogging, statlmr tbe name, ago and offence of the victim, aud the nature of the punish ment Inflicted. This is very well so Cir as it goes, bet U docs not tell the story of tbe flogging as it occurred. It may tell that Mary Jones, aged nine years, was punished with twelve blows upon tbe baud for whis pering, or letting her slate fall ; but It docs not state that twelve blows upon Mary Jones’ little hand were equal to fifty upon the band of a lees delicate child of the same age; nor docs it tell that Mary Jones' hand and arm were swollen for a week; that during that time she could not sleep at night, nor play In the day time,’and that between the pro tracted physical pain and the reproaches and scoldings of the teacher. Utile Mary Jones thought that her brother in hU grave was happy, bccanfic not subjected In the barbar ity ofa teacher who substituted the rattan for kind and encouraging smiles and words of affection and love. We have stated already that we do not Intend to have aoy controversy with the Board of Education ufon this subject of flogging; we do not question the paternal cj:c which they exercise over tbe 15,003 pupils io the public schools. Flogging may be iiercs‘aiy to make good boys and girls, but we bare never read of It being made a j>art of the discipline of the Sunday Schools, where the especial object is to make child ren good, obedient, and attentive to the Christian virtues. Some of the Board of Education, ].orliaps all of them, are teachers, t'ujx.-rinlciidcnts or pastors of large and flourishing Sunday Schools, and perhaps they know why the Divine admonition should be rendered literally In the one class of schools, end in tbe other should be ren dered, “Sufferlittle chlldicnto come unto rnc, to be flogged if necessary, and forbid them not, for of such is the Kingdom of lli-avcD.” The parents and guardians of the fifteen thousand children attending the public schools, however, have a right to know that when they send their little ones away in the morning, those children will not be mal treated and abused by persons appointed over them as teachers. If a childls so Insub ordinate and bis example so vicious as to render him beyond the ordinary correctives of a mild discipline, the remedy is an easy one ; it is prompt and efficient. The teacher has the power by law and regulation to dis ml.-s that child and keep him from the school. The public schools are not rclorma toilet; and they should not be degraded to the level of the Bridewell, even If the uncon trollable infirmities of teachers incline to that style of discipline. Expulsion la the proper remedyl for another reason. A boy or girl who may be fit subjects for tbe disci pline upproorialc to a Reform School, should nut be allowed to attend the public schools, corrupting by their example, and by their conversation the other children attending that school. There la a remedy for those parents whose children have been or may be cruelly treated Ly teachers ; and though we should regret the necessity for an appeal to It. still, such an oppeal, If necessary, Is belter than to leave barbarity mastcrof the field It usurps. That remedy is an appeal to the law. If a man or woman was to assault a child oa the tired, and Leal that child with a rattan on the head and shoulders; or so bruise and lacerate the person astodisfigure it, that man or woman would be taken to thePollce Court and punished as he or she deserved, and bo also subject in a civil action for darooscs. Now a teacher has no more legal right to Inflict any cruel or barbarous punishment upon a pupil than has any other person; and the exhibition at the Police Court of a child with the flesh upon her per wm cut aud blackened by the blofrs of a rat fan or otbcr Instrument,.or of a hand black* oncdwlthsuflhaea blows, the result offer* ruling open the tips of the Anger nails would be os condemnatory of n teacher as U would bo of any other person guilty of like cruelty; and Justice would consider the re lation of teacher and pupil as aggravating the oflcnco rather than extenuating it. Anar.* If”' to the l«w perhaps woali) carry c mvlc tton to the minds of those who think other* wise, that the office of teacher confers no an tuorlty to violate the laws of humanity, and that cruelty in the schoolroom is as much within the reach of the law ana its penalties ftsitls when committed elsewhere and by those who are not official teachers. ES ,ll<sn Taxation protection. The able, astute and affable editor of the Peoria Transcript in the midst of some 'pro lonnd and courteous remarks on the subject of the tariff, says: _ werstnat(Lc shiftless charac lues last an lucreaaed duly on a certain article does not Icrd totho benefit of (he Ameri can producer of that article. Is really new. The Trueuk* ought to got a patent on It.’* The able editor inadvertently falls into a slight error In denominating opposition to an Increase of a tariff already far .higher than any previous one ** free trade diatribes.” In Henry Clay’s time, a tariff framed by himself which averaged thirty-three per cent, was called by friend and foca “ protective tariff,” but our talented friend in Peoria, has pro gressed a great way beyond the old fogy notions of Clay on that subject. The “idea,” he says, “that on increase of duty on an article docs not tend to the ben efit of the American producer of that article, is really net r.” IVe don’t claim to be its originator, os it was borrowed from the Hon. Justin S. Morrill, Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, who la the leading "pro tectionist” in Congress. He declared, in his elaborate and carefully prepared speech, of January 24,15C7, ‘‘ that the year ISOO, just previous to the war, tea* fhc most prosperous one, in all respects, that our country ever expe rienced,” which Is undoubtedly the fact. The value of the manufactured products of that year exceeded txco thousand millions in gold. The tariff then levied was only twenty per cent., with a large free list besides. Since then tho tariff has been Increased eleven time.*, and Mr. Morrill has been an Influen tial advocate of each addition to It. The twenty per cent rates of the prosperous year 16C0, have been swollen to upwards of tidy per cent. Including the late wool and woollen addition toil. How much hare these (keen increases of the tariff benefited or “ pro tected” the “American producers of arti cles J” How much more flourishing and prosperousoreour manufacturers now, with OU|»er cent on Imported products, than they wcic when the impost was hot 30 percent, or onc-lhlrd as high f Let Mr. Morrill answer the question. In his recent speech on the Internal Revenue tax bill, be said: “Jf there are aaygeaUemen who disbelieve the recital* concerning idle factories, forget, fur naces end foundries, rad who think that we are tiill on the top ware of prosperity, rad ao may be » riling uj vectors a fleecer ca' into onr revenues, 1 iotTc them to look at tbs comparative retains rf feme of onr principal railroads, to the present foie of onr navigation Interest*, to the decline of the commerced oarcrasls.tooarrflwri/il*R«f extort trade in cattle, horses, hogs, beef, batter, corcn end manufactures of coUoo,lroa, copper and bras*, together with nmnerons oth*r articles. Thl* Is an expoti'ion of which Ihace the d*‘aile, l ut which I fhcll not, unless compelled to do so, place upon the records.” Kow, If eleven additions to the tariff In the short space of six years, being one every *lx mouths, have wrought this disastrous effect on the productive Industry of the country, is It rational to suppose that a twelfth increase of the tax will restore pros perity or “protect” the Interests of the people? The necessities of the Government require high duties to produce sufficient revenue for its support, nod It is useless to dispute and wrangle over the abstract or relative merits of “tree trade” and prohibition. The Gov ernment can afford to adopt neither system, for either would be dUtructlvo of revenue from Imposts. For seventy years the Gov ernment has been mainly supported by duties b-vlcd on imported property, and we presume will be for the next seventy. With the interest and principal of a national debt of $2,500,000,000 to pay; with a pension list caused by the rebellion, of S£O,OOO. (XX) per annnm ; with two or three > hundred millions yet duo and unpaid to our veteran soldiers to equalize their bonnties; j with the cost of our great California rail- 1 ways and other projected works of inter- 1 State improvement to be provided for, be- , sldcsthe army and navy to be maintained, and all the other expenses of the Govern* ! meat to be met, the proposition ot free trade or prohibition becomes an abstraction for j professors of political economy to discuss before their classes, hut neither would be ] possible to adopt in the existing condition i of Federal affairs. The amount of duties 1 levied by any tariff whether high or low Is 1 ultimately paid out of the pockets of the consumers of the goods and not by the for- 1 elgn manufacturers. Whatever rate the tariff may be, it is a tax on ourulves. Some ! people think that American industry derives an incidental benefit from this tar on our ' imported properly. They have an idea that the doty in someway hinders and pre vents importation, and causes more articles to be mauo In this country than otherwise would be but for the tax, and this supposed obstruction to the acquisition of property of foreign production is called “ protection,” and is deemed beneficial to tbecounlry. But another class of people equally numerous, as well as sincere in their convictions, hold to just the contrary opinion. They deny that protection to industry is found in a tar. iff, and contend that a tariff is nothing marc or less than indirect taxation of the people, and should be no higher than Is sufficient to furnish the necessary amount of revenue for the support of the Government; they admit that with the present needs of the Government the tariff must contiuuc for a long time to come to be very high. But they insist that It is already at high water mark, and should be reduced rather than increased. These opposite views of the effect of a tariff on the industry of the country arc held with equal sincerity and tenacity. Nobody has an interest in being deceived as to the truth of the matter, It may be possible that each side is partly right and partly wrong. The Chicago Tnmuxc believes, from all the lights it can collect and Investigation it has made, that a higher tariff than the existing one Is not needed for revenue purposes, and would he injurious to the public weal. We cannot discover that an Increase of indirect taxation “ protects” industry or- promotes pioductlon, nor can wc comprehend how the interests of the people arc benefited by en hancing the cost oflivlng or making manufac tured products dearer to the consumer. It is on undeniable fact that after each addition to the duties, the makers and sellers of do mestic goods advance their prices to corrcs | pond with the increase of the tariff, and that i.o additional market for domestic articles is obtained, for the simple reason that the pur chaser has no pecuniary inducement held out to him to prefer the domestic to the for eign article. This advance in the prices of both homo and imported goods causes an ad vance in the cost oflivlng, and in the rates of wages, and consequently an equivalent in crease, in the expense of subsequent produc tions of fabrics. Therefore it Is, that foreign goods flow Into the country just as briskly un der the present fifly-slx per as under the twenty per cent, duties of. 1800 ; and the present high tariff proves In practice to be even less “protective” or effective In hindering Importation than the low tariff of six. years ago, while It is almost destructive to exportations of our manufacturers. From this survey of the “subject would it not be proper and advisable for papers like the Transcript to modify their epithets, and restrain their Inlcmnciate zeal for excessive duties? The Chicago Tbibcxe has perhaps forty times greater pecuniary stako than the 2V<wfcHpt In the material welfare of the* country, and consequently forty times great er pecuniary reasons for advocating that tar iff system which will do the most good and least harm to the people. Whatever financial system injures them also injures it, and rice rena. The Thiucxb’s opinions on the tariff question arc not warped by old chronic prejudices or controlled by partisan rims; but it Is a sincere seeker after the tiutb. The Republican party is not com mitted either to free trade or prohibition, to a high tariff or a low tariff; therefore In the discussion of this topic there should be perfect toleration of opinion and candid and dispassionate investigation of the subject in ml its aspects and relations to the public good. TDK IRISH RKVOLT. The Intelligence from Ireland iq very meagre. It comes of course from British ‘ sources, and has to pass under governmental censorship. Sufficient, however, is known to justify the belief that the ‘‘rise 1 ’ is in various parts of the country. This rising and the attacks upon the local constabulary force is only a prelude to a general union of the forces under some one head, and the concen tration ot the whole under some organized discipline. It shonld be remembered that the Irish are very numerous in all parts of England, particularly In the large cities. It has been estimated that there one hundred thousand-able bodied Irishmen In London alone. This will account for tbe precautions employed in England to suppress insurrec tion there. The Irhh Directory arc of coarse unknown except to the Initiated; fhtlr plans and schemes, os well as their resources, arc of coarse hidden from the public eye, bat look ing at this whole thing in the light of the past, and with n knowledge of the constitu tional Inability of the race to agree among themselves upon any subject pertaining to themselves alone, we cannot but regard the present as a hopeless contest. We know that Irish Independence is the great object of all Irishmen. Bat in the fail ure of that end is It not the daty of rational mea to undertake to make existing things oa cudu table as possible. The great bulk of the people of England and Scotland are seeking political reforms; they are sub jected to jVolitlcal oppressions which they wish to have removed. They are striving to take power from the few and place It hands of the many. In the event of the failure of all efforts for Irish independence, wonld it not ho the part of wisdom fir Irish men to make common cause with the Radi cals of Great Diluln and Scotland in the overthrow of the Tory power, and the cstab. lUhmcnt of popular liberty! The enfran chised voters of England and Scotland, thousands of whom arc Irishmen and the descendants of Irishmen, would make the equality of Ireland their- cause, and while Ireland would continue to bo part of the British Empire, it would have the same free dom, and the people would havo the same political and religious rights that the people of the other Island would have. John Bright and his reform legions arc the beet friends that Ireland has, and If Ireland would devote herself to reform, If her hun dred members of Parliament would veto against oil Ministry* that did not give re form. thot measure of political regeneration would be accomplished in a short time, and Ireland, though not an Independent nation ality would cease to be a prison bouse, and her people would not have to Uco the land which rcAises them food, a habitation while living, or a quiet resting place when dead. THE LATEST “DEVOURING IttON- STCR.” The New Tork World, in an article of the most rabid character, and which surpasses in denunciation the fnlminations of “Admi ral” Semmes, holds up the Reconstruction Law to the horror of mankind, and for rea sons which it will bo well for mankind to study. For instance, it says; “ Iu South Carolina, where the black pooalaiioQ is largely to excess of the white, the State Govern ment is. for all effective purposes, made over from the white to the black race: and also In every other Slate where the naion of the white citizens U not so compact and unbroken that no while faction can he found to co-operate with the ne groes.” Is it not horrible that in this nineteenth century, while allttbe nations ofthe'earlh are throwing off the chains which restrain tho iiberty of the people, South Carolina—aye South Carolina, should feel tho hand of ren ovation, and that the Government of the State should be taken away from the minori ty and actually placed In the hands of the majority! This offence excecdeth human endurance. The Kingof Prussia has decreed universal suffrage throughout Nothem Ger many; bnt for the United States to extend the same privilege to South Carolina, and place It iu the power of the majority of the voters to elect tho officers of the State, Is an •unprecedented outrage for which there can bo no extenuation. The World continues: ‘•Judge Comstock state? that n-'gro suffrage la 'be rear hinge of the entire controversy; but be Tails to recognize that negro suffrage Is so ex plicitly enacted In the bill as to leave to the Sooth no other choice than how they will manage it. Jf bis advice I* followed, the State Govern metre will be Africanized by the defection of uhite? enough to make the negroes a majority, and control their vote in the interest of the Radicals.” Is it not atrocious that negro suffrage is so explicitly enacted that it cannot be repudia ted ? And is it not homblo to contemplate that, In those States where the whites arc In a majority, a sufficient number of the whites will inevitably vote with the negroes, and thusrulethe State? The fact that a majority Ought to rule may do very little In a city where the constituency elect such mcn’as Brooks, Wood and Morris«cy, but whoa that tale Is applied to a State where tbc ma jority will elect quite s different class of representatives, then the majority rule becomes insupportable, and It Is “infamous” to require the minority to submit to be de prived of a supremacy which they have In herited from their ancestors. If those negroes would vote the rebel ticket, then the “ Africanization” of the South would be no wrong, because it would show a people united lu tbe cause of treason ; but wbco these colored men will rote tbe Union ticket, then the tyranny Is unendurable, and “ liber ty lies bnrlcd In the grave of the Consti tution.” The World proceeds: “Would It were true, (bat the Southern peonl« Mill rcUla por-esMnuoriliclr S ate Governments I Hut the negro suffrage monster is let loose atrorgst them, and no choice i« left Imt ekhcr to manage It, or be devonrcJ by it, Further oppo rllicn to U Is Idle, becm*c It carnot beprevemed: cay, it» wor#e than lulu, bccau-c opposition will ►our and repel the recto mind, oed into It over to the control of tbe lladicsis.” Tbe “monster’ is certainly loose, and that it will “devour” the last vestige, of treason and rebellion Js’lho prayer of every friend of the country. The policy of “managing*' a monster of that kind is certainly the best, If it is possible; that It Is possible there is no no doubt. Let every man prominent in the rebellion and notorious for his treason re tire from political life; let him give place to some other man’who can show recommenda- tions not written In his country's blood, and a record unstained by treason to bis country; then, the monster will cease to devour be cause of the want of something to be de voured; then the monster will be disarmed of bis tenors, and can be led by a child. Having exhausted its rhetoric upon the de vouring monster, the World changes Us figure, and styles Impartial suffrage a “dag ger,” and U then gives this advices: “If a robber stabs at you wlih a dagger, we bnmblr submit that ii is no recognition ot lua ileht. If you promptly setre his baud, reverse tuc weapon, and plunge U Imo Ll« own heart. Such a weapon Is negro snfliage, and such the advice we give to the bomb.** The “dagger” business has been tried. The “ Northern robbers,” the World should remember, “ invaded ” the Southern “sov cicigntles" sometime in ISOI, ami contin ued to “invade” them until tlioss Sov ereignties collapsed. Since then the South ern heroes and statesmen have been sucinc, on bended knees, to the rohbets for pardon for attempting to “stab them to the heart.” Still, If the rebels can seduce the negroes to vote for them; if they can succeed lo making tbe “Africanixed” Slates vote the Democratic ticket; if they can make the negro majority vote with the white minor- ity, Jet them do it. Impartial suffrage ad mits the right of all men to vote as they please; and all the Radicals demand is that all men shall have that privilege. “ 1 he columns of the Times of Friday contained two articles, one of which embodied the partlcn jara °t a dog-flpht, and the other those ot a man tUrpt. Comm? tuns tocetner, the occurrences afford an excellent opportunity for a comparative estimate of the parlies engagea.*'— llm*s. The “managingeditor” of the Times has cither been shamefully Imposed upon by his local reporters, or he is a parly himself to a sbamefnl fraud on the readers of his paper. Neither “the dog-fight” nor thc“man-Qgbl” occurred in Chicago. The “embodied par ticulare” were stolen bodily from Eastern flash papers. Nothing of the kind described occurred in this city. The Times, wo regret to say, has a chronic hahlt of concocting and stealing such sensational reports, and palm ing them off on Its readers. It is a villainous practice, and should be made an indictable offence. Those horrible lying stories are eagerly caught up by the prints of rival cities, and republished with editorial com ments going to prove that Chicago la a per fect pandemonium of all that is vile, wicked, abandoned, lawless and demoniac. The ob ject of the Times in Inventing, purloining and pnblishingthis infamous trash, Is to force the sale of a few extra copies of Its issnes. For the sake of a few shillings or dollars It maliciously defames tbe character of the city. As cupidity or impcconloslty is the cause of these roobacks, we suggest to the Common Conceit the propriety of appointing a com mittee to ascertain the amount of profit de rived per year from the publication of these lying sensations, and that an appropriation be voted to the Tours concern of Ih&t amount, on the condition that it will thereafter cease Inserting them. CeTTt is announced that a new daily paper is to be started In New Orleans, to be called the Jiepulliean. Ex-Governor Michael Hahn Is to have charge of it, Which Is a sufficient pledge that it will be on tbe right side In politics.

NEW YORK, A Fagot of Personals. filußio, Art and Literature iu tLe Metropolis, The Comfort of Small The atres. Adelaide Phillips ns a Lyric and Dramatic Artist, The Hegira to Paris. (Special Correspondence of the Chicago Tribune.] Nsw Yobs, February 87, isci. * THE COMFORT OP SMALL THEATRES. “It is not always distance that lends en chantment {g the view,” said a party of four, recently, while sitting in a box at the French Theatre, listening to tho well-known strains of 11 Trovatore. If dramatic or lyric art is good, the nearer tho audience is to the stage tho better; yet people do not seem to realize this fact, if one may dnyv conclu sions from the immense size of most of tho modern theatres. The beat of acting U boraly worth looking at when an opera glass is the only medium through which facial ex pression may be cangbt. Half of Ristorl’s success la New Tork was owing to the mod erate size of her theatre; In Boston and Phil adelphia, whore she performed In immense Academics of Music, her acting was not nearly so satisfactory. So it mast ever be, and so it happened that wo were drawn nearer to the Trovatore tho other night. ADELAIDE PHILLIPS. It was a revelation, so far as the role of Azuecna was concerned, and it was a revela tion because of the beautiful acting and singing of Adelaide Phillips. It is not often that one experiences a sensation In going to the opera now a-days. Maretzek succeeds in making people believe that they are listen ing to fine singing, for tho reason thkt the majority cannot discriminate between yhat Is good and what isn’t. The Jndicious know that they go through a great deal to get at a very little, and consequently stay away. So long, then, have we been accustomed to the pinchbeck that Adelaide Phillips’ Azuecna took us by surprise. It was a great performance, and one that in Baris wonld have excited a .furore, as It did several years ago when she made her (Übut at the ItalUnt, and held her ground, though In a strange land and without friends, by the side of Mario and the best artists of Europe. A prophet is not without honor, however, save in hla own country. It ill-becomes ns to throw up our hats and shout ‘‘hallelujahs ”in the presence of Ris lori, and yet not bo able to recognize dramatic ability of home manufacture. Not so often do we come in contact with it that we can afford to pass it by, and, therefore, arc we the more anxious to record a real work of art that has not met with the proper recognition. A Bostonian by birth, a dausense and actress In the Boston Museum from child hood, her beautiful contralto voice attracted universal attention, and, aided by Jenny Lind, as well oa by many other friends, Ade laldcPhQllpps was sent to London, where she studied her profession under Garcia, thebrotber ofMallbran, and, teacher par rx ccllcnec of Europe. Ucrschool, consequently, Is admirable, her execution fine, her voice so rich and round as not to have suffered by comparison when in company with Albonl, Unlike most American women who are built on too slight a frame for voices of heavy cal ibre, her physique Is large and generous, and In listening to her, one experiences the im mense comfort of knowing that the singer Is in no way exhausting herself. There is wonderful repose In ft sense of reserved power. , As an actress, wo do not know a contralto that Is Miss Phillips' equal, and her versatility takes so wide a range as to enable her to embrace with faculty both tragedy and comedy. Her success In Arsace {Saniramidc) ami in La Favorite, at Amster dam, was very great, while at Prague, Ibr which critical city i?on Oiovanni was written, her Zerlina was greeted with enthusiasm. Sec Adelaide Phillips in the Barber of'Seville , and the nnetuonsness of her acting and sing ing wUI send a glow of satisfaction over you. It is art. She knows how to sing Rossini's music, she- has a thorough appreciation of humor, and forgets Miss PhUlips in her role— a feat which few prime donnas rarely accomplish. Her laugh in music Is tbe most real and Irresist ible that wo have ever heard. Nor should it be forgotten that Miss Phillips also excels in oratorio. No one in the country, saving Parcpa, can Interpret Handel, Haydn ond Mendelssohn as docs this fine artiste. Mbs Phillips made a great mistake in re turning to America before fully establishing her reputation la Europe. Our cordial wish Is that she may go back to Paris as soon as possible ond by her recognition there show berown countrymen how little they havoap prcclated the only real lyric artist America has ever produced. THE HEGIRA TO PARIS. The Paris Exhibition is too powerful a magnet for prosperous souls to resist, and gradually social, literary and art circles arc becoming small by degrees and beautifully less. France olrcady has become the tempo* rary home of William Hunt, of Boston, the finest portrait painter in America; of Ellhu Vfdder, the possibilities of whose genius ore unequalled ; of Charles C. Coleman, J. Fox croft Cole, and Winslow Homer, all artists of pogjtivo ability. A recent steamer had among its passengers Eugene Benson, a young artist better known as a contributor to the GaJaxy, who goes out with the intern tlon of furnishing this enterprising “ fort nigbtly” with articles apropoa of the Exposi tion. Mr. Benson will soon be followed by John La Farge, who for culture stands pre-eminent iu his art, and who, il allowed Jo “enjoy” tolerable health In the future, will do work at which America will greatly rejoice. W. J. Hennessy, also, one of the best among our young artists, talks very strongly of exiling himself for several years. Great as Is the vacuum made by the absence of all these clever men, our loss will be their gain, both In personal experience and in art education. Journalism has sent Mr. Frank Leslie and Charles B. Seymour, dramatic and musical critics of the Tima , to the Paris Exposition, os United States Commissioners. Both sail* ed last week, with the Intention of being absent nine month?. Mr. Leslie has left tbo editorial department -of his “weekly" in charge of Mr. Robert?, whose ability is a guarantee of far cleverer articles than one is in the habit cf flndingin pcriodlcaisdevotcd main ly to illustration. In saying this, however, there must not bo forgotten the high-toned influence of George William Curtis over the destinies of Harper'* lleefcfy. Mr. Leslie has recently ensnared a rara aria In the per son ol W. J. Linton, the celebrated English engraver, who, coining to this country on a visit o(inspection, has received such induce ments as to have well-nigh persuaded him to remain. Mr. Linton is » very enthusiastic Radical, and consequently finds much to sympathise with here. That bis presence will be ol Immense advantage to the greatly abused art of engraving, is a foregone con clusion. Jolla "Ward Howe "was to accompany her husband to Europe, bat we believe the inten tion has been abandoned. Dr. Howe goes to Greece, as the agent of the Cretan Commit tee, for the purpose of depositing the Ameri can ftmd in the hands of responsible parties. The sum subscribed amounts to about SSO,(XX) —not enough to pour much balm upon the * brave souls of that noble little island, yet enough to demonstrate that Americans arc not totally void of sympathy with foreign revolution. You will regret to learn that J. Russell Young, the Managing Editor of the Tribunt, has been obliged to go Somh t for the benefit of bis health, which has been much impaired by excessive application to a most arduous post. Mr. Young is a very young man tor so responsible a position, yet fills U to thceatistaction of. the Tribune corporation,—a difficult U-ak,' considering how many heads there arc to that large body. As a political writer, Mr. Young is strong and vigorous; It Is not often one reads In a newspaper so graphic a bit of character pointing as his review of Horace Greeley’s "History of the Rebellion," which ap peared m the Tribune last October. Per sonally, Mr. Yonngis very popular, and it is to be hoped that he will return to Printing House Square with a long lease of renewed health. K. F. FOREIGN ITEMS. The French Journals arc alarmed at the rapid extension of absinthe drinking iu France. Absinthe is declared by the medical faculty to be a direct and powerful cause of apoplexy, of affections of tbe heart, lungs, nervous system and stomach, and especially of brain disorders. The chances are that an absinthe-drinker will become either a maniac or imbecile. A Turin Journal slates that there Is a fami ly In that city, consisting of five persons, who, for the last year, have lived upon cats’ flesh. The French Connell of State Is said to have agreed upon the scheme for the reorganiza tion of the army upon the following basis: The military contingent to consist of HJO.OCO men, divided into two classes, of which the one will servo five years in active service and four In the reserve, and the other four years In the reserve and five in the National Guard.

To the £ditor of (ha Ch-cago Tribune: j 1 Skelton in h!s 4 *Colln Clout” says; .. —ln holy lenten Person xe will neither Beanes or Reason. Bat ;<rlook to be lu loose To a plgse or goose. In this season of Lent, I do .not regard pigs or geese with covetous eyes. I rigidly adhere to my lentils and pike with anehivy sauce, without a single hanker after the flesh pots. I celebrated the Carnivaljvlth my usual gusto, but when Ash Wednesday dawned, I put off my mask and gov trap pings and donned the sober gray of penance, and I shall not again array myself la festive garb until Easter Sunday, when my Knobby hat will bo the envy of all the young fellow* about town. ’ | . I met Aurelia on Lake street yesterday and the Dear Creature said tome: “Isn’k Lent delicious? I so enjoy this season of rest. Pa thinks It £s splendid.” ... v ’ Nowohder Pa thinks it. Js splendid. Ho can now come home and rcadtho paper with” his feet on the fender. No more “German”; no more music and dancing and flirting and small talk; no more sleepless nights and headaches in tho morning, no more of the eter nally same faces, same tones and same talk ; for the pleasure of which he pays fabulous prices to Wright and Wood and Palmer 4nd the rest who get these up to order. And as it is Lent I must not say much about amuse ments but rather moralize and preach some little sermons. I see by the morning papers that another interesting young creature has kiUed an other man In an interesting manner, and in an interesting place, with an Interesting lit tle dagger, and that several other interest** ing young creatures had Interesting Ultra dreams that she was going to do it. This In*? teresting youug creature having Imitated Mollie Trussell thus far, will, probably carry* out the farce to Its denouement. She will probably be tried, and wc shall have graphic descriptions of her graceful dress, and her black eyes, and the jury will And her guilty and sentence her to one year’s Imprisonment and recommend her pardon, and the good brethren and sisters of tho churches on the avenues, will sign petitions for Executive clemency, and the intcreslingyoung creature will experience o change of heart, and get pardoned and go to a convent 1 Just os Mollie TrusseU did ! Or, to speak tbo exact.traUudoal as MoUie Tmsscll didn’t I *** State prison at Joliet, sentenced for ton years. This German came homo one day aud found a scoundrel in the very act of criminal connection with his wife; and show ed his manhood, showed that he was worthy tho name of man, by shooting him. Straight way we dragged him before outraged Jus tice and tried him, and sent him to prison for ten years, aud we maintain the majesty of tho law by making no proposals to pardon him. The eases arc not parallel you sec. la the one ease It was a poor Ignoratib German who hadn’t any money and hadn’t moved in good society, and hadn’t been educated and didn’t know any better than to shoot a man for violating his wife, sundering bta family ties, embittering his whole life and fastcuingupon him a dishonor for which there Is no atone ment. Ills proper course would probably have been to have apologized for the inter ruption and to have given the scoundrel the freedom of his household from that day forth. But he didn’t, and so we sent him to the Penitentiary fur ten years. But you see, In the other case, it is a woman and a prostitute, without any common fam ily relations to be disturbed, who simply plunged a neat little dagger into a man, by way of diversion. Ton see. It Is different from the case of the German! And then, as we pardoned Mollle Trnsscll, that other Interesting young creature, there is no earthly reason why we should not par don this interesting young creature, and all the rest of tbe prostitutes and town strum pets wbo kill men for the fun of it. When a man erases dishonor In the only way he can, there is no excuse for it. So the German will stay his ten years out, and the strumpets who commit murder without any motive may go scot free. In the meantime U Is now in order to com mence getting up sympathy for this new martyr. Who will move in this natter? I regret very much that my friend Robert Collycr should have deemed it worthy of his notice to pay attention to that infamous at tack upon his private character In the Tines. I rather wish he had taken somebody by the throat, as he at first proposed, and given somebouy a taste of the church militant, as developed by his good blacksmith’s arm. It would have been an eminently proper display of muscular Christianity. It was ozc of the worst features of that nasty Stewart divorce case that It afforded a ready means of vilifying honorable ladies and gentlemen by Insinuation and false hood. Id this Lenten season I suppose I should m>t say much about the fashions, but there U one j*olnt which I most not overlook, and that Is that the women of the demi-monde ore not Koine to surpass the ladies of the whole world. The decrees of fashion In Paris Indi cate that we shall have a very lavish and Impartial display of the female torso, proba bly more generous than has been displayed since we were Infants. Madame G—- of Paris thus decrees concerning the ToildU de rol : “ Lt* denta aont borders <Ttrr.r etojTe trancfian. U par m eoiilntr arte VetojTe de la robe. Lt e»rM<jctrtslnjs % exemletmenibaa % tat aurmwU u'un onicmer.t en roie blanche, garni rf- tuIU tt dejterkf. Damea, HJdut bien gamir unpeu.” When the corsage gets so “ exceedingly low ” that even a French leader of fashion w arns the ladles 44 to trim a little ” we may be assured It Is pretty baa and that dressing has got very nearly down to the basis of na ked truth. Some of the churches In Albany,-N. T., are commencing again that silly crusade against moustaches. There arc some-people' In this world whose capacity fbr swallowing camels and straining at gnats 1* astonishing. 1 will wager fifty to one that those people who complain of moostaehes don’t pay their pew rent, don’t go to weekly prayer* meet ings, and In &ct, arc first-class hypocrites. I don't think It Is worth while to bring np even the conclusive argument that Our Sa vior and all of his apostles wore moustaches, but simply to meet tnem with the point blink assertion that they are hypocrites whose smooth shaven lips pollute the sacra mental wine much more frequently than do the moustaches. I have lately seen In an exchange a touch log 44 pome” on the death of a child, of which the following stanza is a sample: ilv child, soy child, thoo'rt passed From everything leircstrial, And lie who calls the babe Uath made thy home cellestlal. I recognize the grief of parents over the loss of children as something very sacred, but I must submit that grief when expressed In such doggerel as the above loses all sancti ty. Why is it necessary for ns to display oar grief to the public In bad spelling, bad grammar, bad rhymes, bad sense and bad poetry?

An accident, attended with fatal results, occurred, lately, near Brechin, Scotland. A servant had lit a fire in a range. The boiler bad been empty, and, owing to the late frosts, the water in the feeding pipe was frozen, and an explosion took place. The whole of the range was torn out, the roof of the kitchen blown off, and tbe door and win dows of the wing were destroyed. The wo man was severely injured, and was thrown on the floor. Then her clothes caught fire, but she managed to get to the snow at the door, and roll herself in it so os to extin guish the flames. Some men, passing after*, ward, got assistance and medical gentlemen were summoned from Brechin; but the wo man died a few* days after.

These bands are formed of six large scollops, the centre one almost covering the front of the bodice. The dresses at the Tuilcrles ball were for the moat part much less eccentric than those worn at the Hotel de Vllte, which I described In my lust letter. There was greater magnltl etneo and less eccentricity.

At the edge of the front there was a small bow, with three crimson velvet buckles; two plaits of crimson velvet, terminating with jet dropc, descended the back.

These bonnets are much in the same style as the maniillu. The taste for the Breton costume increases; the spring demiivUdU paletots are to be those called the Plonescat.

High Church Innovation* In IVew Pork —A Novel ana Sensational episcopal Service, (From tbe New York Express. March 7.) The recent protest of a majority cl the Bishops ofthe Episcopal Cbnrchseems to have fallen as lightly on the cause of Ritual ism as a snow-flake on the earth. The fact was amply illustrated, to-day, la St. Alban’s Chapel—tbc centre of ceremonial worship, which has been repeatedly honored by the Srescnce and the approval of Bishop Pojter. \ that sacred edifice. Ash Wednesday was celebrated bv the solemn penitential services and ceremonies to which the mitred heads nf the communion have taken emphatic and denunciatory exception. The services in honor of the day commenced In the chapel at ten o’clock this morning, but before that time every seat was occupied by a congregation whose uniform responses and obedience to the liturgical usages of tbe temple, indicated they were regular worship peia In the centre of the altar was a massive golden crucifix, with great tapers on cither side. In front appeared a magnificent anti pendinm of purple cloth, bearing a figure of tht/Lamb and tbc Cross. The Pulpit, Lec tern and tbe precincts of tbe Sanctuary were similarly ornamented, and on tbe Gospel and EpUtle sides were circular clusters of tapers. The services commenced by an Imposing procession ot the clergy and choristers, from the robing room to the chancel, all chanting the old English hymn used during Lent, *• Forty days and forty nights.” When tho officiating priests reached the altar, they bowed reverently before the cru cifixion—tbe congregation following their example. Tbe cleigy, consisting of Rev. Mr. Morrell, Rev. Mr. Noyes, ana Rev. El mcodort, took scats opposite the Lectern, outside the altar, and the Rev. Mr. Elmen dorf commenced Morning Prayer. The ser vices— limits, and Itcnediciie, were sung to Anglican chants i Alter morning prayef Rev. Mr. Noyes pro ceeded to tbe centre of tbe chancel, near the altar rolls, and intoned tbe Litany—the re sponse being of a choral order. At tbe name of Jcsns, he, in common with all present, reverently bowed his head, and at the Gloria all present turned their faces towards the altar, or the Ritualistic East. The rector here announced the Intrott for tbe day—the fifij-fim Psalm, and while this was'being chanted all the clergy retired. - While the last versicle oi the Psalm was being rendered. Rev. Mr. Morrell and Rev. Mr. Noyes, with the acolytes and choristers, moved again in procession towards the altar. The choristers at once filed to their respec tive stalls, and only Kev. 3lr. Morrell and Rev. Mr. Noyes, with a sur pliced acolyte, entered within the rails of the sacred place. The former acted as tbe officiating priest, and the latter as bis assistant. Mr. Morrell appeared in a beauti ful chasuble, surplice, and stole, of purple, and the first of these vestments was orna mented with a lamb bearing a cross, both In the back and breast. Having made a gen uflexion at the foot of the altar, the priest ascended tho triple steps and bowed down before the crucifix, beneath which was a cha lice coveted with a purple cloth la the cen tre of which was a white cross. The assistant priest, or deacon, took his position at the epistle side. When the cele brant bad bowed before the emblem of rc deiffplion, he proceeded to the Gospel side, where the Bible and prayer book had been 'placed, and offered the Initiatory prayer of •the communion service—his “back being to the people." The tapers on tho altar had been previously lighted by an acolyte, and the belle tolled to honor of the service- The priest then turned to the congregation and read the commandments—after which his assistants read tho Epistleandtho Gospel from the respective positions on the altar, after which they are named, tho celebrant occupying a position in the centre before toe “g. priest then left the altar and ascended tbe pulpit outside tbo ohancol. Id a mo* menVbsting opened a Bible, be made tbo elgaof the cross oa hie forehead, breast and arms, and all present followed bU example. In performing tbit ceremony* be said: “ In the name or the Father, and of the Sop, and of the Bo); (JhoaL Amen.'* At the name of tho Father, he placed his hand on his forehead; ut the name of the Son on hia breast, nt the name of the Holy Ghost on his left arlh, and at tho amen, on his right. The reverend gentleman then delivered un eloquent and torelblo discourse on the an. dent observance of Lent aud the necessity of penitence, especially at this holy season. At the close of. tho sermon he ascembd the altar, and officiated In the Eucharistic services, during which ho made solemn gen uflexions before tho crucifix and chaMce. The ceremonies closed with tho benediction, and the Immense congregation left the tem ple apparently impressed by the worship in which they had participated. On lost Sunday morning, a well dressed In dividual entered the chapel and distributed among the worshipper* copies of the pro test of tho Episcopal Bishops against RJtu •nllsm. He was obliged to leave the edifice, but his' conduct greatly exasperated all present! as it was calculated to provoke a breach of the peace by interfering with the ceremonies. THE MYSTERIOUS WOMAN.

Who Urn “Mrs. Jennie Perry, of Cin cinnati,” is, has been asked us a hundred times within a few days, and the Gautte, of this city, in an editorial, yesterday morning, propounded the same question—a question we shall proceed, now, to answer; or rother allow the woman herself to tell her own story. Some time in the latter port of October last a case came np before the Probate Court of this county relating to the custody of a child, which certain mends of her late hus band had taken in charge. Mrs. Perry claimed the child, which claim was contest ed by Mr. Cooper and wife, and Louis French, iruaidiun of the little girl and attorney fur the Coopers. The first witness called on the stand was Mrs. Ferry herself, who proceed ed as follows: “ i am the widow of William Perrvvlaic aa engi neer In the naval service of the unlttd Suus, ai.<l am the stepmother of the little girl. £tnma Pvrry,now about Cvejeara of age, whose custody I claim to recover from these defendants. la May )a-t Mr. cooper anti Ms wile bad the custody cf the child, order an agreement with me to take cere uf her until my return from Washington, where I had to co on baslcess In connection with the claims of my husband lor prize money amt back pay, and also on bu loess introstea to me by two New York gentleman, Edward It Phelps and T.

A r W«im*a of Fifiy-clgUt se •tnaii u Roy nf Nineteen. I From ;l:e 1 om.-»llIc Coaiier. glares S] A couple ofdujs ago an old man ot about , sixty jeuTs of age, umutd Philo Woods,ar rived in the city from* Henryville, Indiana, in arch of his runaway wife. Nancv Woods, nbo was aged fifty-eight, who had eloped f»om him about I*o weeks previous, taking with her hia hired boy. Stephen Wilson, aged ninetren. and s'* the furniture and alt the portable properly in his house. It appears that the old gentleman is a farmer, and cultivated a piece of land near Henry* ville, Indiana. Some time near Christmas he hired the youth, Stephen Wltson, spoken of above, to cut tor him and help him until spring.’ The boy worked with him very well until about six weeks ago; when he fell off a loot log as he was crossing n creek, and dislocated Lis atm. This accident compelled him to lay □p about four weeks, most of which time he was confined to his bed, tenderly nursed by the old lady, who was easily old enough to be his grandmother. During his confinement to tbc house the old lady fell la love with him—not with that maternal love, however, with which a female of her age would be supposed to entertain toward a boy of nine tecn—but with the genuine feeling itself, which some prosy youib said “laughs at locksmiths. In ibis case there were no locksmiths to be laughed at, but the old man bad to be watched. The youth, touched by the tender kindness of the antique dam sel, could not help but love her, and the vir gin spark that first affected his heart was soon formed into a raging flame by tbc syren glances of bis tempter. Don Juan and 10 , 02 tastM on IJ a small amount or happiness compared with these lovers. They therefore soon made arrange ments to enter Into a new paradise of bliss, from which the old man was to bo excluded, and only awaited a chance to pat their plans Into effect. The opportunity soon pre sented itself. Last Saturday week the old man was compelled to go to the village to lay In bis week’s rations of com meal; and, as soon as he started off Wilson went to a neighbor named Oliver Laws, hired a couple ol teams, loaded up all the household goods and chattels, and, with his charmer by bis side, started to this city, where they set up housekeeping on Eighth street, near Mar ket, living together os man and wife. They have lived happily In this style for nearly two weeks, he driving a streetcar for their maintenance, and perhaps would have con tinued to live happily lor time to come, bad not the old man come to town to look after his furniture. His advent promises to cause them to come to grief, as ne has al ready taken steps to ventilate them, and, to this cod, wrote the following communica tion to us, which he presented in person : iSOTIIIB BTILISOE TOXAK IX SATUUE.

Moov of the readers of tils will live long hear this sub ject discussed in n.tiionui council*. Wc propose now to show that Monday or any other week day U forty-eight hours long; wc mean that during tho whole of forty-eight hours, Monday is on ‘cailb somewhere to be found. The Monday of this city is of course twenty four Lours long, but oefore and alter our Monday there is Monday in some oilier quarter. When Monday beirius lit New York, there have been three hours o»* 31 on day in London, ard for three hour* after onr Monday ends there will be Monday in San Francisco. Thus between these places Mon day lasts eighteen hours. Now if the day line were at our antipodes, Monday would begin their twelve hours before oms, and end twelve boars after ours. Thu?, for the. space of fjrty eight hour? the earth is noi rid of Monday. The fact may be illustrated in another way. Suppose we are at tbe day ilue. Monday there begins, and in twenty-four bonrs along comes Tuesday. But just west (half an inch if you please) Monday began only an instant before It ended east of the line. The Mon day east of tbe line la twcnty-Tonr hours long, and west of the line is tbe same icnzih. and in all, Monday lasts forty-eight hours.— Scientific American. Cholera. At a meeting of tbe health department of the Social Science Association lately held in Loudon, Dr. Bain read a paper on Ids expe rience of four cholera eptdimics. The result of the author’s obseivueions may bd summed up as follows; ** That spasmodic cholera is caused by a special organic poison. That it is commnnl cated by material particles either inhaled or swallowed when diffused in liquids, as wa ter ; In the former case it is communicated on a small scale. That the period of Incu bation is about 40 hours. That adult males are generally flrstatlocked.tben women and children. That the proportion of deaths In the first two or three weeks ofthe epidemic • averages fourjroales to three females. That all persons are not equally susceptible, but, as a rule, It has the most power over the bad ly nourished. That It is not influenced by the atmospheric changes of tbc barometer, or the quantity of ozone, but in this climate by tbe seasons. That the greatest mortality has always occurred during every epidemic in those districts in which the water Is most impure.” A Spoony King* The gossip who contributes the Echoes from tbe Continent to tbe Herald and Stand, ard, London newspapers, in his last commu nication writes as follows about the ap proaching marriage of King Louis of Bava ria with the Princess Charlotte of Austria : Their mutual affections dates from infancy, but it was at the recent ball given by the King to the officers of his army that his Majesty dared to ask tbc bond of the young Princess. The King Ull the hall room only when tbc son bad risen, and instead of re turning to the palace he took a long drive. On his return he wrote for some time, and then ordered a letter to be forwarded at once to the palace of the Duke Maximilian, with pressing instructions to deliver his mis sive to tbe Princess Charlotte as soon as she sbonld awake. At noon the King came him self to the dacal palace, and tremblingly asked the Princess, “Charlotte, will you be the Queen of Bavaria?” The love for bis beautiful cousin-must be very strong indeed, because such a direct question was rather astonishing from hia Maiesty, proverbially so very timid and diffident wlln 1-dies I and yet (adds this dreadful tale-b«arer) ladies have been very partial to tbc King.
