SUNDAY, MARCH 81,1567, TUB OB RUSSIAN AOBBICA. Bqpbcranccmcnt of the negotiation of a treaty between the United Slates and Has •U, by .which the latter cedes all her Amer- Jean possessions to the United States, will be tialled with plcasnre by the whofcjhnerican people, and will give new near to the friendship which has hitherto made the two nations allies voder all circumstances. The United States has never hid a friend among the nations or Eu rope save Russia. In peace and In wsr, in prosperity and distress Russia has confronted the nations of the world as the devoted friend of the United States, That friendship she has made practical by her magnificent cession of her vast American domain to the American Union. The territory which has thus been ceded Is of about 400,000 square miles, or more than eeven times as large as the State of Illinois. It contains over seventy thousand Inhabi tants, And more than doubles onr Pacific ®oast. it locks tbe. Sriihb possessions on the Pacific, leaving bat a comparatively small distance of coast be tween onr present and oar newly acquired possessions. The United States tor tbe first time has her territory disconnected by ibrehm soil, and In order to reach the new dominion, her people most go by water, or acquire the right ol way over the British possessions. Since the acquisition of Louisiana, by which the possession ol the Mississippi Hirer and the vast regions now covered with organized Stales, no cveat has occurred ol such Importance with legard to the extension of our bounda ries, at this acquisition ofßussian America. It settles the fruorc of the Pacific coast of North America. The possession of that part of the coast now in British hands is not need ed at this moment, but when the States on the Pacific shall fill up, wnen American en terprlse shall have gathered wealth, com merce. and population there, Columbia will obey the laws of empire, and the laws of gravitation, and be included In that continuous coast cf the United States, extending from the extreme north to the Isthmus. No previous acqulstion of territory by the United States has ever at tracted the attention in Europe that this will do. Texas was essentially an American State before ita annexation. California was regarded as hardly worth the expense of conquering It even from feeble Mexico. But now that the United States have erected strong States upon that coast, have peopled it with her enterprising citizens, in rapidly spanning the Continent with her con necting railroads, and has already opened direct commercial intercourse by her steamers with Japan and China, every inch of that coast has become of priceless value, and the possession ofit a matter of deep national concern- The ces sion by Russia of her possessions determines the fate of the whole. It decides that the Pacific, as the Atlantic coast of this conti nent, must be under the same flag, and that European occupation shall never extend be yond Ita present limits, and that, obeying the laws of detllny, progress and freedom, they must eventually and rapidly pass Into the control of the one great central Ameri can power. TVe publish this morning a description of the newly acquired Territory, which we know will be read with interest. IU ces alonlo us at thta llme may havo a signifi cance pointing to a conflict in Europe. The rcotganlzatlon of Kinudoms and Empires in the old country which has been goingon, what may co.r e ol it onr people know not. and though thef-hearts are always enlisted on the a.-de of human freedom and human liberty, they have i.u* little concern lu the relative supremacy of IhUor that despotism. But, grateful forpast and present friendship, the feelings of the Am: r can people will be In the future, as they hare been in the past with Russia in all iher conflicts with other cations, where the ls-ae is which shall rule and dictate to the other monarchies. TUB ENGLISH LAW up LIBEL Id the 8.-itl.-h Bouse of Commons there was recently nwJer discussion a bill modifv of 111,61 io England and Ireland. A similar Ml was introduced soma years a-o and was rejected by tbe House of iords. In the disetasion In the Commons upon the present bill there was au ernres non given to that spirit of “ Conservatism” I s *? Immovable U that country. and which finds so street a support even In this country, Itwaa conceded by ail that pub lishers of newspapers are constantly bc twdfca two opposing forces. The first Is the popular demand forthenewao! the day and the other, the law of libel which forbids the publication of that news. The law of libel U true, permits a man to plead the trutu in justification of the publication, but as there fs no newspaper worthy of Ita name, that does not every day, in some form-in the pollers reports, tbe torrent news, or other wise—pnhlUli a number of elate monte that ate libellous, the pub lisher, In order to protect himself Is required by the law to be In readiness to prone the trnthof all he prints. A newspaper of the first class, audio* in its hundred of exchanges ns many paragraphs of news'. If it wishes to comply with the lawof libel, must prepare itself with proof of the truth of all of these hundred paragraphs that may contain personal allusions, before it can pnhlis. cither of them. Let those who have erer 1 engaged In a law snlt estimate the cost and the trouble to which a newspaper, according to this rule, under the law of libel, Is liable to he subjected. In this country the law of libel has made some progress toward the l.wofreason.hntit is nevertheless clogged Tel, and heavily too, with absurdities ind oppres-lona that have come down from re mole ages and from daws when papers were published not tor the news or Information they contained, hut far the eepret. purpose oflampooningand libelling- persons loan .thurify. The character and of journalism hare dunged since that day, yet maty of the fetters which were fbrgod orici ually for the professional traduccr, arc br law enforced upon the press of the present day. Tbe law of Borland as it now stands provides that unless the plaintiff recover damages exceeding ar ti cn shillings, the defendant shall not be labjcctcd to costa. lo some of the States of IhU country a similar law prevails, the amount, however, varying. The proposed new law Increases the amount of damages necessary to entitle the plaintiff to costa, to five pounds. This provision Is Intended to relieve publishers from the burden of paying enormous costs where the libel Is purely technical, and where no Jury, nnleaa com the etrlct letter of the law, would give even n penny damages. It la Intended, as was said in tbe debate in the House of Commons, to cut off ail that series of softa for libel where there la no actual damage, hut where the plaintiff, assured of a verdict on technical gronnds, gratlHea his revenge by subjecting publishers to enormous blila of costa. Under the English law'as It stands the publisher ola paper Is responsible In a libel suit If, in publishing the proceedings of any public meeting, there be anything In j any ofthe speeches that Is libellous. The I tlra P° s « w change this by mating tbe •Poech responsible) hows paper, which in the ordina rj publication of the news and events of the day may publish that speech ts ofthe It is hardly fair that the public ehonldex pent newspapers to publUh reports of,hT. may he said and done at pnhUe mmta« and then reqntre the newspaper,, nS£ heavy penalties, not only to prove ihatshl speeches are made as reported, but that all they contain is trac. We do not eapno&G that there Is any breach of the law, elthcrio this country or In England, which has so many Inconsistencies and abtsrditkp as the law of libel, and yet legislators approach it with fear and trembling. It may be that this can be accounted for In the .fact that tbe law-making power in England has been gen crallj composed of men who arc professional politicians and place-holders; these men arc as a natural thing very sensitive. As hot boose plants will perish if exposed to the free air of Heaven, so these men instinctively seek shelter from the nipping atmosphere of a free press, behind the strong defences of the law of libel. How far this laet may ex ist in the Halted Slates we do not know. Oar readera can form their own opinion on that point. Certain It is that as a majority of men elected, to tbs Legislatures accent, their election as the flnt *;sp I* the long ladder reaching to the Presidency, U U bat natural that they should icel an unvilUocness to emancipate the pres* until they hare pasioa all dangers from Its assault*. It is to the credit and honor of the Amer ican people, however, that In Ihclr notions of a tree press they are far in advance of tho statute book. The freedom ot the prcss-4 those essential qualities which mark the dif ferenee between an enterprising nows jour nal and the slow concerns of the past eon. cratloD—ls ■maintained to a great extant by public opinion, nnd In aUrcßardandCcOcncc at tbe taw of libel. The English Homo „r Commons has heretofore, and wUI undonbt- C r pass * conforming tho Jaw lto Bpirit of ike ace; will pass a bill taking from the press the technical letters which save no reputations, bat give opportunities for the gratlficavlon of mean and malicious enmities, and will, by making tbe press free, recognise by law that dignity and power which It holds In defiauceoMaw In tbe hearts and minds of the people every where. . REWARDING DESERTERS, Among tbe many disgraceful deeds (meed borne to Andrew Johnson, none la better calculated to nil the people with Indignation cod disgust with the “iambic individual,” than his action In the case of tbe West Vir ghUft deserters. It seems that prior to the West Virginia election last fall, tbe Copper* head candidate lot Congress In the Second District 01 that State, had a list of a hundred and ninety-three deserters from tbe Federal army made out, which be sent to President Johnson with a letter, saying that If these deserters were pardoned and restored to pay and allowances, they would all vote the Johnson ticket. .Tom. Florence, tbe worst Copperhead In Washington, laid these*** papers before the “bumble Individual” and negotiated the matter, re ceiving a thousand dollars as a fee forhla services. The whole batch of the deserters was promptly -pardoned in a lump and re stored to pay and allowances. This action of tbe President abstracted $75,003 from the fond of the National Asylum for Disabled Soldiers into the pockets ol these Infamous men who deserted tbe hag of their country. These statements were made by General Duller, In the House on Friday. He vouched for their troth, and said the Im. P&'ehmcnt Committee was la possession of tbe (acts. We do not propose to discuss whether In committing this most reprehensible act, President Johnson has legally and technical ly committed a. high misdemeanor. That H a question the Senate of the United I Slates will have to pass upon In Its judicial capacity, if articles of Impeachment shall be preferred against the President. Cut wo have no hesitation in saying bis moral guilt iu this matter, lithe acts are properly rep resented, was of the deepest dye, and de serves the Indignant rebuke of every honest man. It seems that without any examine tlon of the acts, and on the bare assertion or o Copperhead candidate that these deserters would vote tor the Copperjohnson ticket, if Le wonld pardon them, he immediately gran ted the request and p’undcred the fund for the benefit oflnralidUnlon soldiers 0f275 000 m order that it might be paid over to the miscreants who had been convicted of basely deserting their comrades and the Union flag ia the day of peril. If this is true, it was as gross an abnee of power, jt was as much a corrupt bargain morally, If not legally, as If he had covenanted with each of these de serters to give him a pardon on payment of a hundred dollars in money. And whether it be or be cot a technical misdemeanor, it is an act so revolting to every sentiment of honor, and every claim of decency and patriotism, that if guilty of It the people wonld say he deserves impeachment, even l£ he is saved from It on mere technical grounds. There is a natural bond of sympathy be tween Andrew Johnson and the Union sol ves who deserted the flag In battle; who turned their backs upon their comrades at. the sound of the rebel bullets, and left them to bear the heat and burden of the day alone. Acdrcw Johnson is himself a deserter—as base and infamous a deserter from the Union flag and cause assoy of the hundred and ninety men in TV est Virginia, whose vile crime he rewarded with enfranchisement, and Indi rectly with money. He came totho helm at a time when more depended upon hU con duct than ever depended upon a single General on the battle-field. He detected the colors ofthe loyal party which had confided in him ; he betrayed the Cause to the extent of his power, and had his power been measured only by his boundless malice and shameless treachery, ho would have turned over the Govcrmrcnt itself to the traitors who bad fought four years for Us destruction. There is no instance of treachery'on record more infamous (lufa tbe treachery of Andrew Johnson ; and nothing (s more natural than that he should reward close of the session of the Senate, offered a resolution appointing a CommUslon ol three persons to consider and report upon the feasibility .of adopting nbonelic characters for the Latin alphabet now in general use lu Europe and America. TLfcj resolution baa not becn'aclcd on : It however remains over among the unfinished botinesa, and may come up at the next sea* slot*. There Is another bill before Congress establishing as a governmental institution a Bureau of Education. It there lie anything to lie done hr the Government upon the subject of phonetic (.rlbography, we mink U might be deterred uulU such Umo as the Bureau ot Education shall ho organised, when the subject miebt he committed to that office. This subject la not u new ono. It has oc. copied the deliberate consideration of the beat ortbocplsts acd educators for half a century. There is, however, a prefty gen eral coincidence of opinion among those who have given thought to the question, and that opinion is adverse to any change in tho present Boman alphabet. Tbla conclusion Is forced upon tho mind by a variety of considerations, prominent among which are first, the Increase of tho alphabet to at least forty signs; and second the impossibility of framing a practical phonetic script. The majority of the Chris tian nations of tho world, and all tho com'- mcrclal countries, have adopted the Latin alphabet. Uniformity is desirable, if possi ble, and to adopt a new alphabet would be SB far as the rest of tho world U concerned, to make tho English tongue, as written in this country, more mysterioiS than it is now. The alphabet as it stands can be made to serve nil practical purposes and as long as this is possible the adoption ol another Is unnecessary and unwise. What Is needed is the revision of our orUSoyranho. and the adoption of a simple system of nota tion, aa recommendedjliy Dr. Noah Webster by which the reader can distinguish at a glance the distinction between'the tone and the short sounds of vowels. Had we this system the orthography 0 f almost every word conid he made absolutely phonetic • snperflnons or silent letters which now em barrass the mind and distract the learner -*° 4 cobbUMS other Irregularities could easily bo cured without appearance of the printed page. It e use extra consonants now in order to Indicate the long or tho cf Towels, and the consonants thus naed areas various as they are numer- Bf tbe adoption of n uniform system of notation, this end could be remedied with. out any change of the alphabet. This rale or method has been adopted In the writing and printing of other languages, and can beadopt edwltb even greater success by those whouse Ihe English vernacular. It, moreover. Is just as esslly adapted to manuscript as it is ■O print, and the change doing no serious vi fence to established rules ot printing and writing, as would be the case if a new alpha bel was adopted, would gradually and rap. -dly be accepted by all. We do not propose to dlacnssthls question now; our object is merely to suggest that •he Commission proposed can do bntliltle ‘?™ Kr “‘ ob i«t sought, the refine at°?r..>rtJos»phy to a phonetic eye. > *°d that the repudiation of the Latin alphabet for an enlarged and new one, even if practicable at ail, wUI not accomplish any practical end that may not bo aa satisfacto rily reached without any change of al pnanct. _ Booiuis nimt. A 9 we anticipated, the re-elation of the lict that a diary was taken from the body of the assassin Booth, and tamed over to the Government with the other contents of his pockets, has awakened the liveliest curiosi ty throughout tho counuy. It seems, from the remarks of General Bntler, that the Im peachment Committee have had It before them, and we may therefore expect that when that committee reports, its contents win be given to the public. Probably no document relating to the history of the re bellion would be ao eagerly sought after, if It were accessible to the people. In its pres. H Is acknowledged, it contaloa the memoranda of ht, own move- P'TP'Iri.GM of his haunted <r Z ‘£ e , t,mC .

The fset thatltmsynot h,~ been, technically, legal evidence as to tho guilt or innocence ot tho party tried aa fcl. low-coneplratora In the great crime, can detract nothing from tho absorbing interest that attaches to It. The cariosity ot the pnhllo it heightened by tho fact that the existence of this dtary wm kept a profound secret by the Govern, ment, and by the other tact, of which there no longer appears to be a doubt, that it is now incomplete—that a number of paces have been cut ont- These pages. It la shown by tbe margin, were written foil, and clear- Jy related to a period prior to tho murder of Mr. Lincoln. Trequcstion Js.whctherthcso pages were cnl oat by Booth himself; or by somebody alter his death; aod If by somebody else, whoNt*cd what was tho motive? There ought to biv one man who can throw light on this point, and that man Is Lieuten ant Colonel Conger, who took. this diary from the person of Booth, together with a knife, pair of platols, belt, holster, file, pocket compass, spur, car bine, cartridges, and hills of exchange. With tho exception of the diary, all these articles were shown to Lieutenant Colonel Conger at tbe time when bo was on the witness stand, and by him identified as having been taken from the body of Booth. Tbe diary, however, was not shown to him; and he was questioned in suchamanocrthat he bad no occasion or opportunity to allude to it in hla testimony. Kow, It is pretty cer tain that Lieutenant Colonel Conger exam* Ined that diary alter taking ft from Booth’s pocket. It is altogether certain that he knows to whom he delivered it alter arriving in Washington with the re mains of the assassin. If eighteen psges bad been ent out at the time ho found It, he could hardly hare failed to observe the • fact* And if be delivered it whole to any officer of the Government,the name of that officer shonld be made known, that the mutilation may be traced to the party responsible for it, and the motive for an act so extraordinary be' brought to light. Until this la done, the Imperfect Information which the public has now received will give rise to numberless theories and suspicions, and only render darker the mystery of the assassination. WDE ADJOURNMENT OF CON. cress. Congress adjourned on Saturday to meet again, If necessary, In July. The resolution provides that If, on the day fixed for meeting in July, there be no quorum present, then the Congress will stand adjourned until the first Monday In December. This means that tf anything ocenrs, between now and July, requiring the action of Covgtesa, the mem bers will bo expected to bo present. If not, then the members are not expected to bo present. The recess Kill be of ninety days duration, end daring that time the Reconstruction Law will have been put in operation. From July to December, should Congress then ad journ* there will be a recess of fire months. Before July, the military commanders will hare arranged all the preliminary business for holding Conventions* and the preliminary requirements of the Beconstruction BIU will have been compiled with. It la with these that there was the most danger to be antici pated from Executive interference. With the machinery once In motion, it is not likely that the President will undertake to produce u collision of bis will with the law. The provision for a meeting of Congress in July if necessary, was a wise one. It puts the President on his good behavior for that time. Even if disposed to be rebclUoas, he can accomplish nothing within that time save Lis own destruction. After July It will be too late for him to interpose to defeat the law. He is powerless. Except, perhaps, In New Orleans, and some of the other cities of the South, there is no purpose on the part of the rebels to encase in actual hostilities. They may murder Union men, and drive out loyal people, but they have no intention of renewing the war with the United States. They have lost all confidence'in Andrew Johnson’s powers. They know that in case of a conflict his official position wonld not serve them. They will therefore submit to the law, and do the best they can. Hts power is broken, and he now enjoys officially the contempt of the people of both sections and of all parties. Andrew Johnson will not do anything between now and July to defeat reconstruction that will require Congress to -assemble at that time to meet, Impeach and depose him. tsf" The Indians claim to have discovered a sliver mine in Texas. It Is ststed by feta advices from Boerno that a large body of In dians, numbering about eight thousand, are encamped on the Rio Concho, about a hun dredand eighty mJldsfrom Camp Verde,and that the commanding officer, General Hatch, sent» message to them from Port Mason, to the effect that they must leave. In reply to this message the Indian Chief told the coar ler “to-tall the white Chief at Mason that he might associate with the bad spirits; that the Indians bad discovered a silver mine on the Concho, and that they intended to remain and work it.” On receiving this message the General wont forward with , H*ff/?M?ii? 0 jsavages, commenting on thwe " a fact.

LSpecUl Correspondence of the Chicago Tnbone.) yyw Yob*, March 27,1367. THB TTIUjrKT O? BASS-CULOTTB ISM. There are certain dispensations of an im providence that we, of the metropolis are obliged to accept with sj good grace a a poa alble, one of which is a perennial attack of St, Patrick’# Pax. As sure as the year rolls round, the sun dawns upon the 17th bt March, when New York loses its ordinary characteristics and Indulges In a general "wearing oflhe green," .Native Americans shat themselves Up, and Broadway breaks out In shamrocks, sunbursts, T. A. B.’s, the ‘‘ Harp that once thro* Tara’s Halls,” green shirt# and green people—all of which and of whom drag their slow length along, in a procession extending over several miles. Go where you will, In any direction, you will collide with the beginning, middle or'end of a winding, wriggling mass of humanity, and will quickly discover that the public have no rights which St. Patrick’s Day is bound to respect. Broadway stages are found running up and down strange streets, In the franctic hope of reaching their goal without becoming entangled in the tolls of a huge boa constrictor that swallows np every thing, Cars along the route of the proces sion cannot be quite so accommodating; consequently, they do not ran at all, but qnietly and without complaint stand still fir hours, until the constrictor takes Itself out of sight. Bat what if you are bound on Important business, or must reach a certain point at a certaln'tlme, or somebody’' Is dy log ? Well, the business must be left un done, the point cannot be reached, and the dying must go on without you. As for stop ping the procession every few miuntes, thereby making an opening by which cat riages, cars and other vehicles can pass through and go on their way rejoicing—lAal is an infringement upon the democratic idea which no true lover of equality will tolerate for an Instant. Sometimes, I think Punch was not far wrong In stating that England is the land of liberty, and America the land of liberties I How, at the corner of Grand street and Broadway, an unfortunate teamster was at tacked and beaten because bis dray had in nocently invaded the precincts sacred to the procession, how a dozen policemen were overwhelmed and severely wounded by clubs, paring stones and sabre cuts for daring to come to the teamster’s rescue, are facts well known to you. That the policemen were not killed is owing to no scruples against unprovoked murder on the part of the assailants. Brooklyn, not quite so magnificently regardlass of the righta of such of-her citizens as do not take part In the celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, has a law against rendering highways impassable, a law so objectionable to a certain portion of the procession wandering through IU streets Monday before last, that when ordered, to leave a space for travel, they prepared for a fight, and were only brought to terms by a sight of policemen with drawn revolvers. Dost thou like the picture ? Evidently a small portion of the community that have no sympathy .willT good old fashioned riot ing, such as blessed the city In 18G3, have suddenly waked up to a realization of what an outrage it is upon the public to permit processions to take complete possession of the streets ; and If such, on abominable onslaught .as (hat in • Grand street Is the only means of bringing the authorities sufficiently to their senses to modify existing laws, the teamster and Metropolitan Foiled will not have suffered in vain. In feet they should be regarded as public benefactors. Even foot passengers are subjected to the , annoyance of unnecessary delay. Hurrying loan engagement down town, I was told by a policeman at the corner of Twenty-third street and Sixth avenue, that it I attempted to cross the street (the procession was pass ing) I would bo knocked down. It did not seem to occur to this gentleman Inmumcl jal livery that it waa his business to Shield ••1-bad, 'ood cro«ißK, stclog no rol . u mao assistance I should bate obtained from the preserver of the peace In other parts of the city I am told, the police absolutely forbade foot passengers to cross the path of the coaatric (or. This was after the affray, in Grand street, und may hate been caused by a fear of more bloodshed. Bren this view of the matter Is so humiliating as to All every ro fcpeclablc man and woman with disgust at the weakness and rottenness of city rule. Iho filth of the streets seems to find Us counterpart in the souls of Iho powers that HBV. 0. D.

J I Picking my way through a heavy mow storm last Sunday, I took a seat In his cbnreh, which is far tip town, and heard a sermon so original in interpretation, so lofty in idea that I came home with it in my thinking, knowing how welcome a portion of It would be to the readers of the T&inpjfij'yet In making extracts I tear asunder what, to be properly appreciated, should-bo read as a whole. However, the iota Is a foundation on which every inteUi. gent mind can build Us own superstructure. a 6BEMON TOB TUB TIMES.

Like all«who do anything but float down the stream of time in the com fortable business of aping their ancestors, he had to break tbe pedantic fetters of routine, rethink the prescriptions of his predecessors, make roles for himself, and thus carve a way to the new inspirations of freedom. Dark 1 . and gloomy was his toll.

Two books, the one by the most famous of living female authors, tbe other by one of tbe moat obscure; yet the merits of these col lections ate not so very different. Though some of Mrs. Stowe’s religious poems have found a place in Congregational hymn-books, and though Ticknor & Fields have presented her to the public in the unexceptional at tractiveness of their style of publication, still there is nothing to save her rhymes from mediocrity. The very pretty little book In green and gold, bevelled boards, tinted paper and gilt top, with frontispiece of gothic cottage, a head piece copied from Hucke’s angels, and other bcauiiftil illustra tions, goes forth with the prestige of a great novelist, with deep religious feeling, excel lent measure, happy choice of language, the favor of numerous patrons-and our kind wishes to recommend it; and though no un uncxplored vein ot emotion be found and no unusual thought embellish Its pages, the im pression It leaves is elevating, and those elauzaa of St. Catherine, the Other World, Only a Tear, the Might, and twcnty-slx other subjects, will not bo too frequently read.

To the Editor of the Chicago Tribune: Tour article on^ 4 Servanl-gal-lam” was, doubtless; read lady who pretends at all to read the newspapers, and especially by those who have suffered from the evils of the inn. , There axe a great many things from, /which ■we toiler, and from which we probably al-‘ ways witt suffer, servanjfgaWaoi being not the least or last; still, although the remedy you spoke o! is good, and will do much to ward relieving the ityTerev, I think the true remedy branches off a litilo in another dlrec* tion., ' The present system of semut-gal-iam is bad enough, but tbo present system of mi*trm-Um is worse! That is a bold charge, I ;know, and may make some of your femi nine readers toss their heads and curl their i pretty lips, but wo can get along with all I that, lor right is right, and truth is truth, I and-if the principles of Justice come in con-, tact with high heads and proud'hearts, so much the worse for them. They must yield, and let truth and right and justice prevail. 1 am not ashamed to confess that I have a large sympathy for that poor class called “hired girls.” That we have bad servants is true, and that we have had mistresses Is just as true, and, though the former may not be entirely the result of the Utter, still who will venture to say that bad mistresses do not largely help to make bad servants. I do not propose to go into a lengthy essay on this topic, or even write a homily; but I would like to state a few things that to my mied prove how wo mould lor good or ill the characters about us. In the first place, perhaps not more than one-half of the great mass ol ladles who keep servants know Just bow their work should bo done. Ido not mean by that they have not a general idea of bow the work of a house should be performed, but I mean that knowledge of things in and about a house, , that can tell on the instant when a thing is done wrong, and is able to show ignorant girls the right way. Especially is this true of the art of cooking. Take a girl who does understand It, and she has at once the advantage of her mistress. How, I do not think It Is to be wondered at that an uneducated girl feels a little contempt in her heart lor her mistress, became she knows that, her: skill alone Is able to cook a dinner, and she cannot keep from showing that con tempt a little in her acts and words, for her mistress dare not discharge her at once. For, alas, who would cook and.snperintend the dinner? Dainty fingers can’t, because dainty brains don't know how, and the owner of these two dainty things can only sit down and cry! tVell, suppose that every woman thorough ly understands her duties and, as Solomon says, “looketh well to the ways of her household”! suppose, she would not be in despair if her servant should leave her with out a moment’s notice, and could pick up tbo broken line of order and go on with it, until another help could be obtained—all this would moat certainly help the matter, If it did not cure. If a servant baa dntioi to htr mistress which mnst not be disregarded', most surely has the mistress duties to her servant, binding her just as strongly to the fulfilment. Notlorg since a lady (?) keeper of one of ,ou “ te tlum 100 wcl1 ! yo-J mould use them as yon would catttcr' ])„ rt _ M there, Is the solution of the whole matter. >.ow the question is. how man, of our serv ant girls sro card like "cattle X th'nk it would he lareaslerlotcllhowmany are used like human: being*, possessing smd, feiUnns Aod list here u large Held opens to Ttew, wherein cwry mistress may have s chance to work sod see the fruit of her labors in the lifting up out oi dark ignorance the minds of her servants j but, alas! another truth stares at ns with § a ~i? rrl 2 face ' “ Dd sU)I “Otter and a rdidcr fle d looms up in sight. Dow otic*, fit lhe servant is better educated than the mman for whom she works. This may not ' oe found os' Often In the city as In tho country, hnt it Is tree, nevertheless, nnd tells its own story o/ Mr women of th: , „ jru . irnlh century I Let it stand n lasting ihnme of those of whom it is true. -Another cry Is "if wo could only have girls who would not go out nights ” Yes that Is desirable; right, too. We ought to have girls who rarely ore fonnd away from their homes after nine or half.pasl niao o clock at night.' Let ns look at thla. How many plcatant kitchens, think yon, are in this great city ! How many places where a girl can feel that it is a pleasant room to work In ? I have now In my mind a kitchen where the only earthly objects visible from the window is a bora, nnd a Wood pile. One can- see the sweet bine sky, If - she looks straight np and strains her neck at that. Sow. who wondets that girls fairly aeftt to get out of these rooms, which, to them, are bat pris ona,—achc to get out, anywhere, only to bo oiroyfrom such a gloomy place. Then, again. b 0" Bins have pleasant sleeping rooms? Is It not generally trne that the poorest room in the house Is assigned them the poorest bed put In it, and; if containing furniture at all, of the most miserable kind some old chair or stool that could be nsed oonherc else?

Something might and must bo done In thla direction, helorc servant girls wM become what we wish them to he.

T .^ re , l ' * ln,th - tat not leaat,_a troth, which if onr American women wonld • wakenp to and understand, it wonld do more lor the evil than anything dse. The Unth Is simply this: Servants have sonlsd There is no getting around tins point—they have souls and woo be to ns as h ™w*f we neglect this one grand tratb, and fall to do what U la*mr duty to do. My chceha hare ttaji riame when I have heard the questions that have been asked a girl on her appllcatlonlor r 1114 “ stoop so low, ao far lencath all the generous, noble Impnlaes of the heart, in trying to adjnata bargain be tween herself and a domestic. And right here, I would ask a few qneatlons. Is It necessary that yon remind a girl that yon don t want her to steal “ everything she can lav her hands to!" Is It necessary to tell her yon shall keep a good lookout" over her sets; and clceely watch the small val uable articles belonging to the table t Is it necessary to remind her that yoa con sider It yonr privilego to search her pockets whenever yon choose, especially if she wishes to leave yon, and then add— yon want to see for yours ell, thereby hint ing to herthaf yon think she will He, as well as steal fjfltdanecessary to tell a. girl all the bad qnalltlcs of yonr former servants, and that you hope she will take warning bv their fate, which late was to be turnedlaway from yonr dear home and good advice. Now.'l inakedipld to saydjtst a mistress has no more right to scarelWke pockets or room oU&retvanl girl than that girl has to do .-o wlth-her. ififjbistress hasany right to tell a girl that she ogpccts she will lie to her no more of a right than.hos tho girl to say so to her mistress, andpmsy I add, no honor, obte woman trig doit. Treat your girl as yoa wonld wish to be treated, were some strange ircsk of ’fortune to cause yon to change places with- her, and, wonderful to hrtte/° a r Wi U yottr * irl3 growing ‘ 1 * 4vi>cat ' DO undue tamll- Urtty, no bandying of Jesting words ao foolish talking or telling ot secrets, in a moment of extreme good nature, no giving up the qhiet dignity that should ever bo* long to a good mistress, and which will over bo respected by servants. Servants throw oat the remark that they ought to' * change place* with Ihelr mistress, but rare ly. wUI a servant do this, If she feels ft con* scions superiority |n her mistress. It & woman lets herself down to rough word* and coarse manners in the presence of servants, she has no reason to expect aught' else than their contempt. Servants are not olmd to these things, and they know that their mistresses often fail to know just where the line is, or, between them. This is an old. subject,—one that has been talked over more. I venture to say. than any other subject ever was since women learned to talk; but the cure for these ills lies back of the servants, is the mistresses them selves. It is time that our American women began to see fAeifr duly In this thing, and to come boldly up to the rescue. Mr. Editor, I humbly pray that your rem edy may be thejlm dose, and let it be fol lowed up by other doses, until weshalibe cured entirely. Let our ChrUtian women set the example and see; if something cannot be done In the right direction. The corse has been on us long enough; the plague spots have marred the hearty of our domestic happiness long enough; but, in Heaven’s name, let Juttice be done. THE WORLD OF’AMUSEMENT.

To lie Editor or the Chicago Irlbone: Ristori has been to me the Alpha and Omega ol alUnblunary things, not to speak of the Betas and Gammas and other letters between them, and I am afraid that my appetite has been spoiled for the ordinary attractions of the theatre as Terrenay spoils yonr appetite for cider. Ido not mean to include the compa ny proper in this eologium. Ton constantly ; hover between inexpressible admiration and | a desire to Indulge in unlimited profanity. Ton bare on tbe one hand a great artist S'andlng at the very head of the dramatic profession; on the other, a pack of worse than second-rate players, no one better than the other and all os bad as can be. If they are distinguished for one thing more than another, ills for the astonishing equality of their bad acting. The actor who takes first paits Is no better than the supernumerary and tbe supernumerary is 'no worse than the first actor. This Is handy for the management, for where all arc equally bad, tbe parts can be dis tributed round indiscriminately. This Is what gives one the -temptation to indulge hi profanity. The step from the company to Kistori is immense. It is the distance be tween Heaven andjTopbet, netween cold bosn and one of Blot’s best entrees. It is only her greatness that prevents you from con signing the balance of them to the dramatic failures. During this week we have had but-one new character—Judith— but a beautifully rendered character, one of the best in Ristori’s repertoire. Next week we shall have Victor Hugo’s great play of Angelo, the Tyrant of Padua, and Macbeth. The latter will draw an immense house as everybody is familiar with it and is desirous to witness the conception of the greatest of dramatists in the hands of the greatest of artists. On the 15lh of April the Mendelssohn Quintette Club; assisted by Adelaide Phil* lips, who Is par excellence the beat anlst America has yet produced, and Camilla Ur so, the violinist, will commence a short sea son of concerts. The Quintette Clnb will create a eensatlon here. They have been as sociated together lor many years, and have thus had the advantage of practice togeth er, which is an indispensable condition to good playing. Five good players, five ac knowlcdgcd artists, even, may associate to gether to play quintettes andmake a fiwlure Bhs Einst did with his quintette, magnificent artist although he was. The club is composed of Wm. Scbultze Carl MaJsel, Thotnas Ryan, tVolf Fries and- Mr. Heimdt. SctmlUe will be remembered by oil who heard the old Germania orcbcsta, os the first violinist of thatsoclety, andHeimdt is undoubtedly the best flutist in tbo country. I warn people if they mUs these concerts, they wfil miss some magnificent music. I am in receipt of several letters from iq dlgnont ladles, on tbe piano question, com plaining of me with a sort of delightful ygshS#?a{pJ“‘ will keep St onlhat moTo^a/l object to bating a bottle of Mm, wins lows sootiling Fjrop, or a coal hod or. cottage bedstead In the bo mu'.

I hare received some other letters which arc oddities in their way. A woman seeking a divorce front her husband, without money to car a lawyer, writes to me wanting to corrc spend ‘with your paper” and lake “part pay in advance,” concluding with a pithy post script—'‘Please send me ten dollars ” That woman la coo) enough to melt an leeber*. My dear Madam, under no circumstances can I eend you ten dollars, w to mention that .Mrs. Peregrine * would object to It, and that I haven’t got len dol lars, and that lam opposed to eneoanelas divorces, you don’t offer to pulppany ert laterals.

The ladies of New York have introduced a .new fashion—nothing less than tho placing of little silver bells on the dress, which will be charming in a polka. By discreet initiations, a l&dy can Untlnnabn late her bells so as to express any Idea. A sudden jangling would express to young Booaey that she is engaged for the next set, while a careful wiggle would bring out a delicate trilling peal which would ox press unutterable things to John Augustus. The clash that would ensue as Matilda passed Anrelio,between whom there is a little sulkiness, would he delicious, and a rush in a horse car wonldhe worse than a pagoda in a high wind. Mrs. F. S. B.

If the reader will look at the horses’ tails all tied up with ribbons in Rosa Bonheur’s Horse Fair he will save me tho trouble of telling it. The latest culinary novelty Is alphabetic soap. Instead of the usual cjiindric and sur ehaped morsels of maccarod which have hitherto given body to our broth, the letters of the alphabet have been substituted. These letters of paste preserve thdr forms in pass ing through the pot. These will be very handy. -At the Ladies’ Sociables ouo can hare tbe Decalogue and several psalmswll float log- in the same bowl.

They are said to taste &s they smell, but 1 should as soon think of breakfasting on fricasseed cherubs* wings as these little blue eyes of spring. The Fejee’s method of embracing missionary truth by eating up the missionary is hot half so cruel. A second , attempt is being made, in Paris, io introduce the fashion of throe* cornered haisfor ladies; but it does not succeed very well, apparently because such a style of bat only suits a very young and vei y pretty woman, ami, in Paris, a largo number oi the fair sex ore neither one nor the other, which is much the samo In every place except Chicago, which has the hand, somest women in the world.
