He was tried in Springfield on three indictments and sentenced to fifteen years' hnpris-onment.and the payment of $3, 000. The population of Madagascar cumbers nearly six millions. 1 ' The principal tribe, the Hovas, ' said Lieutenant Schufeldt in a lecture in New York the other evening, ' are men of Malay origin, with fair complexion, black and sparkling eyes, aquiline noses, numbering about 900, 000 and far in advance of the rest of the inhabitants in intelligence and the arts of civilization. The women are often handsome. Some of these advantages can be attributed to climate, the region inhabited by them averageing 4, 550 feet above the sea level, and affording a bracing atmosphere. Kest in importance and intelligence he placed the Betsileo tribe, the men possessing lithe and active frames, but the women, unlike the Hova, are seldom or never handsome. The Barra people, iu the southern part of the island, are distin guished by their utter lack of ennobling qualities. ' ' The morality of the Rajra. added Lieutenant Shufeldt, might thus be summed up: "Give me my gun and my spear, my rum and my wives, end mr oxen let m steal, plunder and destroy everybody ; let no body molest me and I care not who ia my king.

But, perhaps, the neatest thing, and se that touched the fancy of his audi ence most perceptibly, was his allusion to jLlnalma Lincoin as "the man who made I: white.

The Journalist gays that James Gordon Bennett has sold one-third of the HeralcHo G. W. ILiCkay at a price which fixed its val uation at 3, 250, 000. This sale, to the same authority, was necessary to enable Hr. Bennett to pay his assessment on the new cable stock. The indirect consequences of conduct are well illustrated by a story told in the recently published life of Nathaniel Hawthorne. He was once the victim of a Salem coquette who after having gained his confidence ' presented him with the startling information that his friend Louis had been guilty of an attempt to practice the basest treachery upon her ; and she passionately adjured Hawthorne to champion her cause. ' ' The result was that he challenged Lotus to fieht a duel. Louis being cognisant of the deceit practiced on Hawthorne explained it to him and the affair between the two men had no serious consequences to them, but it proved fatal to a friend and classmate of te novelist named Jonathan Cilley. "vYhe1 Ciiley was challenged by an impetuous Kentuckian to fight a duel, he hesitated, but as soon as some one said, ' If Hawthorne was so ready to fight a duel without stopsping to ask questions, you certainly need not hesitate, ' ' he accepted the challenge and was killed. "When Hawthorne was told of the indirect part he played in the tragedy, his remorse was great and he could not shake it off. It inspired one of his most sombre short stories, in which he discussed the problem whether the soul may contract the stains of guilt from deeds that have been resolved npon, but which physically have never had existence. called a philosophic statesman. He weight out the fundamental principles government and attempted to put them in practice. But he was, not always successful, and Mr. Gay points out several instances. "While it is impossible in a brief notice to follow Mr. Gay through his book, it may be said that he has produced a most excellent monograph on Madison. Ha is accurate and judicial, and in his style, clear and compact. His story of Madison's life is highly entertaining, and his comments on the fact3 that he sets forth eminently fair and impartial. IJxper the title of 4 Sketching Rambles in Holland" (8vo. pp xvi. , 342, gilt top, uncut edges. 2Tew York: Harper & Brothers. Rochester: Scrantom, Wetmore & Co. ), George II. Boughton, an English artist, and Edward A. Abbey, an American artist and his friend and fellow traveler, have given the joint results of their visit to Holland. The former furnishes the letter press, and although he feels called upon to offer an apology on the ground that he is not a professional writer, there is no occasion for him to do so. He has given a bright, picturesque and wholly unconventional account of what he and his companion saw in Holland. The illustrations number about 100. Speaking of them, the Kew York Commercial Advertiser says: 'Some of the illustrations are splendid examples of artistic skill, and do more toward the accurate presentation of the inner phases of Dutch life and character than would volumes of description. Both Mr. Boughton and Mr. Abbey have been particularly successful in portraying the peculiar Dutch type of beauty with its soft lines and absolute freedom from angularity of any kind. Dutch women have not the reputation of being beautiful a statement which puts the matter mildly, perhaps but the examples of them shown in the 'Frontispiece' and in 'A Fan-Daughter of Holland' certainly will do much to make current opinion more careful in it3 dogmatizing on that point. set of pic tures illustrating Dutch life would be complete which did not do justice to the humorous side of that life. In this respect, 'An Idyl' and 'A Sketch at Schellingmonde' will satisfy the most exacting. ' ' Beee and wine are equally dear to Bis- Barck's heart. In reply to two Prussians living in Warsaw who had made a bet on the subject, his secretary replied ; ' ' His High ness directs me to inform you that you are both in the right, inasmuch as he is equally fond of good wine and good beer, and, with the exception of his sick days, partakes of sue as well as the other. ' ' NEW BOOKS. ' The Usages of the Best. Society, ' by Frances Stevens, is an addition to the innumerable books on etiquette. Nevertheless it is an admirable little book and contains as much information as any of them. The publisher is A. L. Burt, 105 John street, New York. These i3 a field in China for American .-ailrwiil contractors. The present war with France has convinced the Chinese of the absolute necessity of railroads and as soon as the siruggie ceases, they will begin the construc tion of these great modern conveniences. As the Chinese themselves know but little about railroads, they will be forced to call upon foreigners to build them. Kara Berardt's ill-health is now attributed to a disappointment in love. It is well known that her last alliance was with il. Bichepin, a writer of some ability, but tiring of her, he has left her. That an abandoned reprobate like her should be thrown into fits by a disappointment of this ort is little short of a revelation. Few supposed that her heart was anything but a Hint. "A North Country Maid, ' ' a novel by Mrs. H. Lovett Cameron, ' ' Beauty and the Beast, ' ' a novel by Sarah Tytler, ' ' Sir Moses Montefiore : A Centennial Biography, with Selections from Letters and Journals, ' ' by Lucien "Wood, have been added to Harper's Franklin Square Library. Francis Lathrop, whose fame as a decora tive painter is well known in connection with the Metropolitan Opera house and other public and private buildings, has made a handsome and striking design for the cover of Cassell's Fami y Magazine. The new cover will ap pear on the first number of the new volume for January, 1885, and will be ready De cember 12, 1884. The bound numbers of the ' Magazine of Art" for 1884 make an extremely handsome volume. They include woodcuts that compare favorably with the work of our best engravers, an etching by Macbeth, color prints of pictures, etc. F. A. Bridgman, Mr. Sargent, Mr. Danoat and YVyatt Eaton are among the American artists whose work3 are treated of. Mr. Eaton's "Portrait of a Lady" is reproduced in wood-engraving, as are Mr. Dannat's "Spanish Quartet," in this year's Salon, and Mr. Bridgman 's ' Moorish Baby Taking his Bath at Home. " Other remarkably good prints are ' ' The Cast Museum at Cambridge" and the "Diony-S03, ' ' illustrating an important article on "Hellas at Cambridge;" "The Evening Star, ' ' a print in monochrome, after Burne Jones ; cuts of the cloister and other portions of the Certosa of Pacia ; some striking portraits of Egyptian types, by George Seymour, and several portraits of Carlyle, after Thomas "Woolner, Mr. "Whistler, Georje Frederick "Watts, the etcher Legros, and the sculptor Boehm. Two of the most picturesque parts of London are shown np in an article on "The Lower Thames, ' ' and one on ' The Inns of Court. ' ' Probably the richest collection of the world in modern masterpieces, that of Constantine Ionides, is illustrated in a series of articles devoted respectively to the realists like Degas and Regamey, idealists like Corot, and old masters like Van Goyer and Ruysdall. There are articles on the "Country of Millet, " and others interesting to students of painting, and articles on 4 Art in the Garden, ' on Venetian glass, on a wonderful Greek dressing-case or cista, which will attract the attention of those who are occupied in any way with the decorative arts. The monthly record of art, foreign Jand American, makes in the complete volume a summary of the year which is both readable and useful. WILLIAM H. SEWARD. His Valet's Recollections of the Eminent New Yorker and the Trip Around the World. Washington correspondence Cleveland Lender. There is a colored barber working at the chair nearest a window in a shop on F street not far from the Ebbitt house, whose talents and education merit a better position. He is about 40 years of age, nearly six feet tall, and his features are of the Caucasian tvpe. His negro blood is shown only in his complexion, which is a dark mahogany. As to his manners and his language, they are as good as those of any man in "Washing - ion, ana nis satin on lnlortnation is equal to that of many a man who ranks high in official life. Since his boyhood he has been closely associated with prominent men. He went round the world with Secretary Seward as his valet, and ha occupied the same position in regard to EUhu "Washburn while Mr. "Washburn was our min ister to Paris. There is hardly a country with which he is not familiar, and he has visited the different parts of Europe more than once. When he was a boy he shaved the senators of the days o 1850. and later. at tne old Kirkwood house, and his razor lias often caressed the shaggy chin of Sam Hous ton, smoothed the cheeks of Andy Johnson, and wandered gently over the faces of a score of other noted men who have since passed away. As I sat in his chair to-day, I asked him a question or two about ex-Secretary beward. He said : My brother was Sena tor Seward's servant at the time he was about to start out on his travels, but as he had just been married he did not wish to go with him, and he got the senator to take me in his stead. It was a pleasant trip through out. "We had our own cook, and were well supplied with all the necessaries. Mr. Sew ard was A GENTLEMAN, and ha always treated me very well. His health was not good most of the time, and this, of course, kept him from alwavs being in the best of humors. Secretary Seward did not like doctors, however, and I remember an incident idustrative of this which occurred while we were stopping with Lord Napier, the governor of Madras. One morning when Mr. Seward was feeling especially bad, the doctor called at the governor's house to see one of Lord Napier s family. His lordship hearing Mr. Seward complain of feeling ill. asked him if he would not like to see the doctor. Mr. Seward replied : 4 No, gover nor, 1 cannot meet a doctor to-day. 1 am not feeling well, and I hope the doctor will excuse me. ' Mr. Seward never f ullv re covered from Payne's assault. It shattered his nervous system, and he bore the e fleets of it to the day of his death. ' ' By the way, a curious example of office seeking was that cl tne servant wno let m Pavne that night. He afterward applied for a position under the government, and alleged as a reason why he should have it, that he had been working at Secretary Seward's at the time the assassination was attempted. He failed to get the office. ' ' Did not Governor Seward write a book of travels during the tour ?' ' 4 'Yes, or rather his adopted daughter wrote much of it at his dictation. It was largely her enterprise, you know, and Governor Seward gave her all of the profits of its publication. It sold well, and must have netted her many thousands of dollars. During his travels the governor worked a part of every day. He wrote some and read a great deal. ' ' ' 'Governor Seward, ' ' continued the man, ' 4 was a man of In addition to the staff of Intmct th are in every department certain local commissioners who have the power of visiting the workshops and reporting whether the inspectors' instructions have been carried out. Una system, however, does not appear to have answered very well in the provinces, though it is more successful in the depart ment oi lu oeine, wnere eighty commissioners carry on the inspection. The number of summonses for contravention of the law was 255 last year, of which veniv-v took place in Paris. These snow a constant diminution since 18S1, and there is every-where a due recognition that the provisions" of the law must be obeyed. Indeed, in 1 883 tnere were only two instances of any flagrant defiance of the inspectors orders. Horsford's Acid Phosphate FOB OVERWORKED PROFESSIONAL KES. Dr. Charles T.

Edward Starwood, a Boston journalist, has contributed an interesting and valuable book to the political literature of this country. It bears the title of "A History of Presidential Elections" (12mo. pp. 407. Boston : James R. Osgood & Co. Roches ter : Scrantom, "VTetmore & Co. ). The author has compressed in this moderate sized vol ume all the facts in relation to our presiden. tial elections. This he has done in language noticeable for its clearness and perfect fairness. He begins his book with an account of the origin of our electoral maehiney as it appears in the constitution, and then proceeds with a historical narrative of its workings. The congressional caucus, the party platforms, the nominating conventions and the other features that now characterize onr electoral machinery receive full and satisfactory attention. In a word the book is the best that has ever been written on the sub ject and should be in the hands of every per son interested hi American polities.

Truman has undertaken in a book entitled 44 The Field of Honor" (12 mo. pp. 599. New York: Fords, Howard & Huribert. Rochester : Scrantom, W et-more & Co. Price, $:2), to give a comprehensive history of dueling in all countries, in cluding the judicial combat of Europe, the private duel of the civilized world and specific descriptions of the noted hostile meetings in Europe and America. It is the only work extant which pnpfesses to cover this ground. Lorenzo Sabine's 44?Totes on Duels and Dueling, ' ' published in 1855 was very popular, but it is now out of print. Much more comprehensive than these 4 4 Notes, ' ' Major Truman '8 book is certain to achieve a greater popularity. He has been a very diligent student of this phase of civilization, and has collected a great number of facts on the subject, and has arranged and described them in an entertaining manner. After exhausting duels by countries, he speaks of the different modes of fighting and c1 ses Ids boot with two anecdotal chapter- ,a the 4 4 Humors and Pleasantries of tb Field. ' ' The fourth president of the United States ranks in interest if not always in ability with "Washington, Adams and Jefferson. Madison possessed unusual intellectual powers, he was a man of unimpeachable personal purity and honesty, liut he was destitute of that strength of character which was more conspicuous in his predecessors in the presidential chair particularly in Washington and Adams. This is the estimate of Sydnny Howard Gay in his 4 4 Life of Madison ' belonging to the 4 4 American Statesman Series, ' publiahed by Houghton, Mifflin & Co , Boston, and it must be accepted as the true estimate. Madison's work in the Virginia legislature, in the Continental congress, in the federal congress, Lis letters and papers on various subjects show that he possessed an inckive, a catholic and profound intellect.

For many years past Alfred Tennyson h s pigned his name only to letters to his nearest friends. All other communications, including replies to open or concealed applications for his autograph, have been, and are, penned and signed in his name, by "Lady Tennyson, who writes a bold, strong hand, much more masculine in appearance than the poet's. But little happens nowadays to remind the world of Salmon P. Chase, says the St. Louis Globe -Democrat. Yet it was only last Saturday that Ids old partner at Cincinnati, the Hon. Flameu Ball, retired from the active practice of the law, and closed up the office which was opened in 1832 by Chase & Ball, the weather-beaten gilt sign haing hung outside ever since. The career of Madame de Kolmine's first husband, about whom nobody seems to know antyhing, turns out to be as ciu-iou3 as that of his quondam wife. A brilliant officer in the Russian service, he had to leave it for keeping a private gambling establishment at St. Petersburg. He then became a member of the Paris jeunesse dorie, and, although at first scouted by his compatriots, his liberality soon made him very popular at Bignon's, the headquarters of Russian elegants. At last his means, which he annually recruited at Monte Carlo, began to fail him, and then he courageously enlisted in the French legion etrangere as a private. The latest news of him was from Algiers. Prince Albert Victor, before leaving Heidelberg, was serenaded by a native choral so ciety whom the young prince very obligingly entertained at the Uastnaus zum Scluff.

The Journal Officiel states that, in accord ance with the law of 1S74, which provides for the inspection of all industrial establish ments where young people are employed, 47, 817 shops and factories were visited during; last year, of which 21,756 were in Paris. This is a considerable extension of the field under inspection, for even in the metropolis, which naturally contains the lion's share of general industries, the visits only numbered 568 m 1876. The total number of cluldren of both sexes who came under the inspector's notice w3 213,101, a very fair increase since 1S73. when it was 119, 462. In that year Paris had 3330 under inspection, where as last year it was 39, 484. The latter figure is, however, a rather serious diminution from that of 1S82, when it was 42, 957, caused by the long continuance of industrial depression. The legal ae for the children to com mence work is after the completion of the 12th year, though in certain indusiries they are permitted to enter the shops two years earlier. These are fourteen in number and embrace silk-winding, floss-silk spinning cotton, wool and flax spinning:, textile printing, silk throwing, paper making (though not in rrg-picking!, cotton roving;, tulle ana lace-makins, glass-mating, rope- making, etc. The total number of children employed in these occupations is 4234, ot which Rouen contains the most. viz. , 2, 439, Paris only having 130. Twelve hours a day is the permissible term of labor, and all night work is forbidden. Ko child under 12 years of age can be emploved without a certificate that he or she is sent to srhooL public or private. Between 12 and 15, unless they have a primary elemctary certificate, chil dren can only work six hours a day, and are obliged to ro to school during the other naif. The average numlier of children who have the school certificate between 12 and 15 years was 69 per cent, in 1S83, fi-gaiiist 23 per cent in IS 76, and of the Parisian contingent the average ia tVO Tier cent. The number of accidents which happened to children last year was 175, of which Paris was responsible for 42, while, on the other hand, Nimes had not one. At the present time 21 departments' are provided with inspectors act ing unoer the direction ol a ctuet in spector; out it is now proposed to in crease the number to 25, placing them in three classes, with salaries of uOOO francs.
