To-night the new opera boutfe o" "One Hundred Virgins." Scalping Knives kokIndians? Editors ar In jour edition of this afternoon you state that the "the purchasing commission of the bo ir.l of Indian commissioners have contracted for 1,503 dozen butcher knives, and 1JU skinning kr.lvet-, among Oiher articles to be furnish d the Indians." As a cognate, interesting, and historical fact, it may he mentioned that air ing our revolution iry war, on? of the items of tb> expei s< s thereof.'in a schedule presented to the British Pai liamt-nt, was.for "live gros-< o1' sent, . tup knives." See Baekleon civilization, vol. 1. page "44. (extract from Parliamentary History.) April 2t;th. J. McG. The Daii.y Chronicle in Its issue of the 24th inst. said with reference to the proposed n.w postal treaty between the United States and France: '? T.iere u no prospect of agrc-inent between the To t office Department of the United States and thai of France upon the adojrtion of the postal treaty. Our department will not accept the high rates of postage proposed by the French Minister, and there th matter twit." On the same day The Star corrected this statement by saying what was and is the fact that negotiations wire still in progress. Th ? Chromcie has since made several feeble attempts to prove the accuracy of its original statement, but tliu- far has signally failed. It now foolishly 'juotes from the United States I'vital Gazetf as follows: "A? satisfactory results hare ng ytf b"ii reached, a nit it is extrrmslii doubtful if any cmicntion <ril! Ot emuluded, although the negotiations are still going on." That is precisely what The Star 1, anJ the Chi much deuied, thai "negotiations are still going on.,; If -'fie matter ended" when the Chronicle says it did what mean the nego i atfons still going on? The Funeral of Commodore Aclicr took place at noon to-day from hs late residence, corner of 18th and I streets. There were pres ent the Secretary of the Nary. Admirals Par ter, Goldsborough, and Powell; Commodores Almy and Kodgers; Commander Kane, end a large number of naval officers at present ii. Washini<on, a'l in full dress uniform: General Sherman, Col. Audenrled, of his staff; General M. C. Meigs, Col. Dunn, and many other offi cers of the army, besides a large concourse ot civilians. The remains of the Commodore were encased in a magniticent burial casket, decora ted w ith the American tiag and an anchor of b. -util ul tlowcrs. The Kev. W. F. Watkins, rector of the Church of the Epiphany. read the burial service of the Episcopal church, after which the procession moved down the avenue

to the Congressional cemetery in the following order: Batallion of the marine corps, (headed by the full marine hand,) Capt. Tiltan, com manding, with arms reversed and drums m ti lled; the hearse, escorted by a guard of honor, consisting of eight sailors from the United States steamer Tallapoosa. under command of Mate C. H. Cleveland; carriages containing tbe pall-bearers, consisting of Admirals Porter. Goldshorough and Powell. Commodore Rodd ers, Major Slack, and Dr. Erersfield. Maj. A. S. Nicholson, of the marine corps, had charge of the funeral arrangements. Cheap Labor in St. Loots.?Be tween fifty and sixty Chiuese were set to work in the cooper shop of daynes & Co., St. liOuis, yesterday. Considerable'indignation was mani fested by the coopers. A number of them en tered the shop and indulged in rather threaten ing remarks, and intimated that a strike would occur, but there being a strong police force on the ground, no demonstration was made, and the probabilities are that no distxrbance will remit. There are now nearir 1,000 Chinese en gaged in various occupations in St. Louis. Koad Aoektb at work in Nevada.?The stage from Hamilton for Pioche. Nevada, wa^ robbed Sunday uight near Hamilton, and the driver killed, by three men, painted to give them the api>earance of Indians. The driver stopped the stage wheu ordered, and on demand handed out Wells. Fargo Co.'s treasure box. It is supj>osed that the shot which killed the driver was lired unintentionally through the nervousness of one of the robbers. The passen gers, five in number, were unmolested. The loss of the express company is triliiug. Strike or Crispins in New York An other secret meeting ot the St. Crispin and Ger man shoemakers' societies was held in New York last night, but no general action was de cided on. It is rumored that two bouses having declared their intention of not considering the question of increasing the pay of their work men. the latter struck yesterday. An early and general strike is not considered probable. Ef forts are being made to get the German shoe makers' societies to act in full accord with the St. Crispin societies.

He open vl It, not without difti cultv, and fount! it co: rained some hairs of h red beard. This was a revelation. It became evident that the unfortunate Rugin, in strug gling with his assassins, had seised one of them by toe beard. The next step was to discover what individual haying access to Raglo's hon* wore a red beard. It was then remembered that the servant of Rugin had a lover, a dyer, named BergamatcUi, whos j hair and beard were red. He was arrested, and his house searched. Under a stove nearly 1,000 francs were discov ered, and several nortion* of his clothing were found to be stained witb blood. Thb Modoc Chahov of Basb?
