[Special New York Letter.] The carrige, a vehicle familiar to the street gamin of to-day, has a history which reaches way buck into the mazes of antiquity. Its first form was very primitive, and the products of the carriage builders of the various ancient nations ware in so far all alike that the box alwnys rested directly on the axles. \Vagons arc first spoken of in. the Bible and many ancient traditions and documents speak about war chariots and triumphal carriages used by' the ancients. The fust carriage used by private persons wns introduced in Rome about 350 years after its foundation. It was called the "pileutum," and was granted by the senate to the Roman ladies who had sacrificed their jewels in the interest of the republic. The privilege was rarely used, however, and up to the time of Augustus, the Roman ladies employed a sort of Sedan chair exclusively "on their travels and excursions. The "wagon of the Romans was called the "Carpentum," and consisted of an arched box resting on two wheels and drawn by one or two mules. The car-, pentum was often richly decorated. At a later period the patrician Romans Whak was the first one. to drive.a. Kix-ih-harid, and the earl 'of Northumberland tried to ridicule the new luxury by putting eight horses before his carriage. . . The. idea of renting out carriages ftiifi horses originated with a Frenchman in Paris, i\ T icholas Sauvage, in 3050, and Eince his house bore the nume "Hotel St. Fiacre" these coaches were generally called "fiacres." Sauvage soon found imitators and improvers, and only a few years later four-in-hands could beared for excursions to the country palaces which the conrt occupied alternately. hl^NISE BOG SMUGGLERS They Loam to Dodgo Customs Housa Officers on "Sight Trained tn a Most Elaborate Maori" tor the Wort of Carrying Contraband Tobacco from Gibraltar Into Spul 11.

P go., New Orleans, La, used a four-ivh'eeled carriage called the "Carrucne," and the Roman "swells" tried to outdo ea-ch other in the elegance of. their turnouts. • • The knightly costumes of the middle ages and the wretched condition of the roads interfered seriously with the use. of carrages at that period and the'noble ladies generally traveled on horseback 'like their lords. Men and women fostered the noblo sport of horseback riding; only monks and, women using donkeys as a matter of greater comfort. As late as the beginningof the sixteenth century the aldermen in the cities went to council meetings on horseback. When covered coaches made' their appearance in Germany, at the beginning of the sixteenth century, they were used only by the noblest ladies, men disdaining to ride in them. The first carriage with suspended box which is mentioned in medieval history served Queen Isabella at her official entrance in Paris in 1405. Fifty years later the envoys of Ladislaus,V.,kingoi Hungary and Bohemia, presented the French queen with a "suspended and richly-decorated carriage," which caused ereat admiration at the French court. This carriage was not imitated, however for under the reign of Francis 1. only .two such coaches existed in Pans, one of which belonged to the queen, the other to the king's mistress, Diofia of Poitiers. Special .permission was granted occasionally. to ladies of the highest rank to use similar vehicles, but in 1503 the 'parliament of Paris requested the kin" to forbid the use of carriages in the. city, and this decree was strictly enforced .afterwards. Even under Henry IV. carriages were, rare objects, the .king possessing only one, for common.use with the'queen. The . carriage in which Henry was murdered was assort of cart, resting on the axles, with u leather roof and leather curtains. The decree of the parliament of Paris was not unique, as other countries also prohibited the use of carriages, some goin"- so far as to make, it a fclony.for the lower nobility and other vnssnls to \n-rnncl tournament in R'-ippin (150°). tinder the Elector Joachim ol Brandenbur"- was attended by the wife of that ruler in a. gilded carriage,.while her suite occupied 12 richly^ccoratcd car- CABRIAGB OF THE TEAR 1660, They, were called: "Voitures pour la suit de 1» cour." . The practical Dutchmen did not regard the evolution of the carriage with much .favor, for in 1603 the use of carriages was prohibited in Amsterdam, "to save the costly'pavement," as the edict said. The carriag-e in which the wiie'ot Charles of Aujou accompanied her husband in his entry into Naples must have been a real gein. Au old historian says: "She rode in a caretta upholstered with blue velvet, embroidered with g-oJden jleur-de-Hs, the like of which Neapolitans had never seen before. This luxury spread from Naples over all Italy. It cannot be ascertained whether .the extended use of carriages spread from Italy or not, but no nation is as enthusiastic about carriages as the Italians and especially the Neapolitans, may the vehicles be ever so primitive. JSo- where cnn be seen more stylish carriages than in Palermo. But it is said that these elegant carriages which cause so much admiration on the corso ere often owned by several parties, wlio exercise the strictest system of economy in their household to be abls> to in- fiulq-e in Hie luxury of an elegant turnout" It is also remarkable that the occupants of these carriages, ladles and children, always peak out from closed windows and drawn curtains. ' This fact reminds -one of the ' svvert waters," the favorite place for carriage riding with the Turkish ladies of Constantinople. It is peculiar that the cristocratic ladies of the harem use an ox cart of the most primitive construction The box rests directly-on the axel's and the wheels are simple wooden disks Curtains protect_the occupants against inquisitive glances and the slow ,-ait of the animals, as wel^as-a number of black-attendants who surround the carriage, prevent any possibility of a rriisha-p. „. , The coaches in the Flowery Kingdom, which are awkwardly constructed of There is a port of the world where the dog population is largely engaged in unlawful occupation. This is ia Gibraltar and the adjoining Spanish territory, Men who live by smuggling take advantage of the intelligence and docil- itv of the dog to make him do their- work a.nd take thVrisk without sharing in the profits. Smuggling is peculiarly profitable and attractive in this region, because Gibraltar is. a port where everything- is admitted free, of duty, and Spam is B country which imposes a tremendously high duty on cigars and mokes the manufacture of tobacco a government monopoly. Even high officials and members of the Spanish governor's staff smuggle tobacco when they return from a visit to Gibraltar. One ingenious smuggler used to keep H flock of turkeys with which he journeyed between Gibraltar and Spam. Under wieh wing of every turkey was a half pound o£ tobacco. The Spanish' customs officers found out the_trick one day and there was an. end to it. The dogs arc the most successful sraug'g-li'i's of all. They are trained for the work in the most elaborate ma.nner.. Before being actually started on their nmun-gling career they undergo a oovtr?e of training, each being- taken out for a walk in the country, by his master, A friend of the latttr, dressed in an old Cmibinero's uniform, and a.rmcd with a bludgeon, hides himself somewhere on the .route the dog and his owner intends to pursue. The dog is- encouraged to go forward, and immediately he comes within reach of the hidden counterfeit officer the latter catches hold of the animal and gives him n sound drubbing with his weapon. After a few lessons of this kind, the dog's intelligence tenches him to carefully av,oid anybody dressed in the hated uniform, as he has souvenirs of wearers of it on every part of his body. A Sandy isthmus separates Gibraltar 'from the Spanish mainland. It was almost imjfcssiblc to catch all the tobacco laden dogs that ran across this . . Pnenrnonl*. Mri. A. J.

'At the coronation of Emperor Maximilian in 1563 the archbishop of Cologne and his suite appeared in 14 carriages. A.chronicler describes the carriage used by the empress of Mathias ol Austria during hi? entry' into Vienna, (1611) as "covered with perfumed leather," 'while Count Khevenhuller, speaking of the marriage of Ferdinand I., says: "The bride with her sisters rode in a gorgeous, golden- broideVed'carriage, the noble ladies of her suite followed in black velvet, and the rest of the women in neat leather coaches." The fashionable ladies of England at an: earlier period.had J:o-resign all comfort during a .carriage ride until In 1564 a Dutchman, named Wilm Bobnen, introduced the.first coach,- for which the queen ,appoulr.ted him."royal carriage builder.", Several highborn ladies iecelved permission 1 to use the new vehicles; which caused great astonishment, in the rural .counties., wherever one of these ladle's happened to travel.
