THE TIMES - PHrLADELPHIA. 3IONDAY MOIttTCNG. MAECH 24. 1884 NOTES OF NEW BOOKS. A good many people will be inclined to give a kindly welcome to the "Life and Poems of Theodore Winthrop." edited by his sisterand published by Henry Holt & Co., Xew York. Twenty - two or three years ago the portrait of Theodore Winthrop, which now forms the frontispiece of this volume, was very well known throughout the entire country. It is a pleasant lace ; in fact, one of a group of that circle of refined JiewEDgland faces now known and read of all men as representing the creators ol American literature. Theodore Winthrop's, though Derhans not one of the strongest of these faces, Is one ol the finest and most clearly marked of the group. In some features It reminds one of Hawthorne s, as the type of genius louna jn "Cecil Dreeme," one of the most characteristic of Vinthrop - s books, is a hint of that which fascinates in "The Scarlet Letter." The present sketch, edited by Major Wintlirnp s sister, must De accepted as a token of atJeetion rather than as a critical estimate of the man. W itn paruonauie lonriness and nride it names the relation Between Theodore and the famous Governor Winthrop, of Massachusetts, and liisson, Governor W intnrop, of Connecticut. In fact, there was "a third Governor Winthrop.and then thefamily rested from its Governors and had a quiet period of comfort." Still there were Judges and professors; and it is good slock all through. Theodore was born Sep tember:!.' 1S2.S. His lather was Francis liayaro. AVinthrop and his mother was K'.izubeth Dwight Voolsey. So the liayards, the llwights and the Voolseys all came in and gave llieodorea very fair start in the world. The sister says it was what "Oliver Wendell Holmes admirably calls the Brahmin caste of New England." The mm lly traditions were all of culture. And so Theo dores early schooling and training ana later traveling, and finally his disastrous love - making, all took the shape of so niucli discipline, and in omo cases of bitter inspiration toward the pro duction of "John Brent," "Edwin Brotuertoft nud "Cecil Dreeme," which have given him some fame. The first movements of our civil war found Theodore Winthrop among its volunteers. In the early days of the month of June, lMil, be was on General Butler's stall, acting as private military secretary to the Gen cral, and at the " sharp scrimmage, or half bat tle," of Big Bethel, " Major Winthrop was dts tinctly seen leading a body of men to the charge against the enemy. One report says a North Carolina drummer boy borrowed a gun and shot him deliberately; another that Major Winthrop was shot by a Louisiana rifleman. ' At all events, from that day his letters to his mother ceased and reporters telegraphed their papers that the cool, brave gallantry of the man was the theme of universal admiration among the Fed eral and Confederate forces. Major Winthrop a poems, a good many of which are given in this book, are nothing like as good as his prose or his righting, but they all together mark him as one of the choicest sacrifices made to liberty in the early days of the war. To THIS generation, which is so rapidly forgetting the painful facts of our war and talking only of its meaning and philosophy, a litllo volume of "Echoes from Hospital and White House, being a record of Mrs. Uebecca It. ronv roy's experience in war times, by Anna L. lloyden, published by D. Eothrop & Co., Boston, will reawaken may painful recollections. When the war broke out Sirs. Pomroy was a well - known and respected resident in Chelsea, Massachusetts, and finding herseli a widow, with many good impulses to help care for the brave boys that had gone to the front, she offered her services as nurse, and on a Monday morning, late in the month ol September, 1S01, Mrs. Fomroy started alone on her mission of mercy and reported herself on the following day at Miss Dix's headquarters in "Washington. Her services were accepted, and lor three years, with a few intervals of rest, sho did her arduous work of ministry to the sick and dying in the Washington hospitals as only a noble woman can do such work. Anna L. Boy den has written the story with appreciation and modesty. Naturally there are many thrilling in cidents in it incidents in fact which have grown too thrilling for this generation except they come to us in sonic pleasant guise of fiction. But how Important and bitter they were twenty years ago Is plainly shown in this tribute to the memory of a devoted woman. Two volumes are added this week to the Bcrlbners' revised edition of Donald G. Mitchell's works. The first contains "Dr. Johns," a story of New England life and character, both interest ing and wholesome. The other volume Is a collection of essays and addresses, some hitherto imprinted, which are given the undistinctive title of "Bound Together." One Is a centennial " address upon Irving; one is a lecture on Tithm ; others, and among the best, aro on the "Procession of the Months" and a group of short articles on such topics as "Highways and Parks" and "House Interiors." Mr, Mitchell knows a good deal about a good many things and he is always an agreeable writer, in whose company time may be spent with pleasure and profit. Lewis H. Bisbre and John C. Simonds, of Chicago, have prepared a compact and useful work giving the "History, Methods and Law of the Board of Trade and the Produce Exchange, ' published by Callaghan & Co., Chicago. The authors have endeavored to do for the general subject of commercial exchange what Messrs. Bicldle and Dos l'assos did (or the Stock Exchange. The history ol the institution of the Board of Trade isaliko Interesting and Important. The present book is equally adapted to the wants of the lawyer and the layman. It covers the entire Held of the laws and usages of commercial exchange and has a great collection of facts that aro worth knowing and remembering. Curri.ES, TJpham & Co., the Boston publishers, have made a very neat book out of the Bketches of Henry P. Fellows' descriptive of "Boating Trips on New England Rivers," and the Illustrations, by Willis H. Beals, have a plain quaintness about them quite in keeping with the subject. In a prefatory note the author belays a suspicion which the public will probably share with him that his sketches are niaiuly for private circulation. Without being overly clover the descriptions of skiiringon the Concord, Merrininc, Housatonic and Nashua rivers are interesting, especially to those who have spent any part of their leisure In the neighborhoods of the streams described. O'DoNOVAN KossA's Irish story of "Edward O'Donnoll," published by S. W. Green's Sons, New York, will in no way plcaso the most fastidious English or American literary taste, and as it is written avowedly to illustrate the various phases of British injustice In dealing with the personal rights of Irishmen, it will naturally offend ninety percent, of all Englishmen who, out of mere curiosity, may be tempted to read it. But the author shows a good deal of vigor in his composition, and, being thoroughly familiar with the native wit and native brogue, he has written a story that will be enjoyed by thousands of his countrymen. A new generation of readers has arisen Bince the " Cloveruook " sketches made a reputation for Alice Carey, but those who can appreciate simplicity and purity in unaffected narrative will tlnd this work as Iresh and true as ever. A. C. Armstrong & Co., New York, have Just reissued the two volumes of "Clovernook " in very good form and they are very well worthy of this revival. The humor and pathos of American country life have never been more tenderly and Eweetly described, - and unafiected as the volumes are Mr. Whittier was right when he said that they " bore the stamp of true genius." BAliNES' "New National Renders," published by A. S. Barnes & Co., New York, illustrate the great advance that has been made of late In the methods and appliances of teaching. The 'First Reader" is full of very nice pictures, with descriptive words beneath, the modern method ot learning to read being based upon words rather than on letters. The " Second Reader " Introduces the spelling lessons and excercises on the slate, and so on progressively. The printing of theso books, and especially of the illustrations, is of a quality that was unusual a few years ego In costly gift books. "The Penal Code of Pennsylvania" is the title of a carefully and elaborately prepared work by Isaac H, Shields, of the Philadelphia bar, and issued in two volumes by Ilees Welsh & Co. It is an exhaustive presentation of the criminal procedure, statutes and decisions of Pennsylvania, and will bo a most valuable aid to the profession. It is carefully and fully Indexed, the Index filling two - thirds of the second volume, but the chief value of the work is in the completeness with which the Index classifies th8 statutes, decisions, etc. Librarian Spofford's "American Alma - nao " for the current year preserves the essential features which have distinguished its six predecessors. Everything is brought down to date with such cure and accuracy as to make it a necessity for the student, the editor, the man of affairs or the family. It is now the only publication combining all the elements of a hand - book In small space. The work could not have fullen Into belter hands. Tiie April number of the Art Amateur gives a critique and portrait of Habert - Dys, the clever young French designer whoso ornaments, initial letters, tail - pieces nnd so on add so much to the attractiveness of VArt; some account of the Castellanl collection, now on sale at Home, with cuts of some notable objects, and a great variety of Interesting matter about the flue arts and artistic decoration. "Clear Light From the Spirit World" Is the title of a bright blue - covered book by Kate Irving, published by G. W. Carlcton & Co., New York, in which the author, with evident sincerity and purity of belief, describes a great many seances, the results of which satisfied her of the truth of Spiritual manifestations from the other world. A cnKAP edition of Professor Rawlinsou's well - known Hampton lectures, on "The Historical Evidences ol Ihe Truth of the Scripture Kccords,1' delivered in the Oxlord I'nlverHlly pulpit In the year ItSif), has boon published by John B. Aldon, New York, CAUSE OF CnRIST'9 DEATH. Occasioned by Rupture of the Heart Caused by Mental Agony. " The most remarkable event in the history of the world was the death of Jesus Christ," said llev. Dr. Thomas A. Hoyt, pastor of the Chambers Presbyterian Church, yesterday afternoon, in beginning a special sermon to the medical students. " Its hidden meanings," he continued, "are transcendant aud It was, without parallel, the most sublime tragedy ever enacted." The speaker had chosen his text from St. John, 31, 19. John, he said, slood only a few feet distant lrom the Saviour and subsequently related what he saw. The subject discussed by the speaker was, " What was the physical causeof Christ'sdeath?" Several eminent physicians had devoted years to the study of the question and a book on the subject had been published by Dr. Stroud, of Edinburgh, about thirty - five years ago, in which he ascribed Christ's death to rupture of the heart. During a convention of physicians in Scotland several years ago the deductions arrived at in this buok were presented lor their consideration and they were confirmed. There are, the minister said, many cases on record where death has resulted from violent passions ol joy or grief. Pliny tells us of a Lacedamonian who !c!l dead from lnv at hearing that his son had won a prize at Hie Olympian games. The speaker read several medical opinions on the subject ol" heart rupture and continued : "There is no pretence mat me spear Lnrusi, 11110 me Saviour's side caused death. In fact, lie was dead before the wound was received. Christ was crucified al 9 o'chu - k in the morning and expired at ;l o'clock in the alternoon, or two hours before the centurion dealt the blow with his spear. The crucified usually lived from two to three days and sometimes as long as five days on the cross. There is no evidence that disease might have caused His death and no reason to believe that He was not of perfectly sound health. Some have thought that He might have died from exhaustion, but we are told that lie was miraculously sustained during His trials. It was not weakness. Sumo declare that He voluntarily gave up life, but He did not lake - Ilia life; He simply submitted to tho comlltions'under which He died. The answer to the question, ' What was the physlnoi, cause ot Christ's death?' is, 'Rupture of tlie ft, caused by mental agony.' laterally, Ho died of a broken heart." The speaker read extracts from many letters from eminent physicians giving their opinions on Dr. Stroud's book and on his deduction as to the death of the Saviour. They all indorsed his con - elusion that Christ had died of a ruptured heart. "John says," continued the speaker, "that when the spear was thrust into the Saviour's side 'forthwith came there out blood and water.'" Dr. Hoyt then proceeded to explain this from a medical point of view. He said ihat when the pspear - head punctured the pericardium the blood and serum from the ruptured heart escaped. He said that all this was simply a fulfillment of a Scriptural prediction, as was Ihe parting of His raiment and the casting lots among the soldiers lor His vesture. " But what was this mental anguish that broke our Saviour's heart?" asked the speaker. "It was not the tear of death, for He looked towards that with longing. ' If I be lifted up,' He said, I will draw all men to me.' He anticipated death as the consummation' of His labors. Reproach hath broken my heart," He said, and then died. He died lor us. The weight of human guilt broke His heart." FA YOKING FIVE HOURS' WORK. A Fiery Wood Carver "Whose English Needed Considerable Pruning. The wood carvers of Philadelphia, who number some 250, held a mass meeting yesterday at 807 Walnut street, to consider plans for organization. They desire to obtain rooms for models and drawing and a reading room, In order that carvers may be encouraged to more intelligent interest in their work and that they may have opportunity to study the best designs in their art. Owing to the smallness of the attendance, nothing was done about organization, but several speeches were made. Thomas Dean, the chairman, advocated only eight hours as a day's labor and the abolition of the contract system. Five hours a day ho thought even preferable to eight, and nothing was too good for the workinginan. " Exaggerated newspaper reports and the Shy - lock presses of t he country, that hound legitimate labor organizations as they would dynamite associations," were shown no mercy by the fervid orator, who handled all corporations and capitalists rough 1)'. An earnest appeal was made lor tho better education of carvers, who, as yet, know only the rudiments of their business. Mr. Mcl'lieely, who was introduced as a member of tiie Knights of Labor, followed in a long, rambling speech upon the rights of the workingnian. James A. Wright, the chairman of Assembly No. 1, of the Knights of Labor, in this city, gave his hearers much advice as to their duties and discussed the economic questionsof theday from the Henry George point of view. The carvers were urged to organize and to equip themselves in the best manner possible for their work. AN ANOMALY IN JOURNALISM. Industry and Genius Find Expression in Every Department. From the Pottsville Chronicle. The Times justly prides itself on its exceptional success. It has unquestionably been an anomaly in American journalism. During the first year of its existence it stepped Into the front rank aud has maintained its place at the head of the class lroin that day to this. It has deserved the rich reward of popular favor it has reaped from the slart for tho very good reason that it is one of the brightest and most readable newspapers in the country. It fills a peculiar sphere which is not likely to be occupied by others. The far - sighted political sagacity and genius for leadership of Its distinguished editor - in - chief, Colonel A. K. McCiure, have impressed themselves upon Its every column and guided it safely through many a storm. With a rare knowledge of men, Colonel McCiure has gathered around him a corps of nble and brilliant newspaper workers second to no other newspaper office in the country, whose industry and genius find expression In every department of the paper. Nine years ago we hailed the advent of The Times as the promise of better things in Philadelphia journalism, and that promise has been more than fulfilled, not only in the brilliant record ofTHK Times itself, but In the Impulse given to Its Philadelphia contemporaries, which to - day may justly claim rank with those of any other city of the Union. Feeding Six Ilundred. The exercises yesterday morning at tho Sunday Breakfast Hall were of more than usual interest. Six hundred chairs on the main floor were filled at an early hour and some applicants were turned away for want of room. Three hun dred quarts of milk, lSlquartsol coffee, 70 pounds of pressed beef and 2,500 rolls were consumed. The meeting was led by I. Newton Pclrco and addresses were made by Rev. D. Vanhorn, D. D., iicv. u I' . Turner, D. D., James Pollock, Colonel William P. Drow, Rev. Mr. Gonzales, chaplain U. S. A.', and Alfred H. Love. All were listened to with the most marked attention. Solos were sung by Mr. and Sirs. Bisbee and Miss N. Bar rows, with tho usual selections by the Sunday Breakfast choir. Many persons came forward to sign Hie pledge. And many, who had becomo reiormeu inrougn mo inuuence ol this association, were present, enjoying tho service aud at the close expressing to somo of the managers their gratitude for what had been done for them. Tho managers intend having only two more breakfasts this season. The place will then be closed with a public entertainment and supper on the 17th of April. How a Bootblack Played the Hero. From the New York Morning Journal. Dou't jump, lor God's sake; don't jump," shouted some one in the crowd, and In an instant a bootblack named Harry Powers, of No. 11)3 Mott street, scrambled up a treo like a squirrel, sprang on to a little veranda at the second story of the house, and then with wonderrul agility climbed on a shutter, through blinding smoke, to the third - story window, whore the woman was just about to leap down. As he stepped Into tho window he grasped tho frightened woman firmly by the arms nnd drew her gently but forcibly away from her dangerous position. At the same instant he was greeted with u ireiiienuous cueer uy inose w no naa watcned his hazardous course from below. Thus was the life of Mis. C. M. Maxwell saved from the burn ing building at (12 East Twelfth street last night. The Cream of a Capture. K This ico cream tastes doubly good when I think how near we came to losing It," said a hoarder at Mrs. Margaret s. Remington's, 1514 Arch street, when dessert came on the dinner table yesterday. Then one of Mrs. Remington's sons told how he had captured John Davidson. or i27 christian street, red - handed in the act of stealing the two freezers full of cream for the boarders' dinner from the yard in the morning. Davidson was taken around the corner to the Filbert street station house. Guilty of Murder In the Second Degree. Milford, Pa., March 23. The jury iu the Greening murder trial, alter remaining out all night, brought in a verdict at 1.30 o'clock this afternoon of murder In the second degree. Greening sat unmoved when tho verdict was rendered. C. W. Bull, his counsel, moved for a new trial, claiming that the verdict was not In accordance with the evidence. The verdict is disapproved in the community, the general opinion being that Greening was guilty of deiiburato murder. Morse's Theatre Rededicated as a Church. New York, March 23.Tho old church building in West Twenty - third street, which was transformed by Salmi Morse into a theatre for the production of his Passion Play, was rededi cated to - day as a house of worship. It will be known as the Twenty - third Street Tabernacle. Rev. A. B. Simpson, a lormer Presbyterian minister, is at the head of the organization. Logan's Lament. We never speak as wo pass by Me to Jim Hlnino nor him to I; Twlxt us there llouts a cloud of gloom Since I have found he's got a boom. We never speak as we pass by, We simply nod and drop onr eye, Yet I enn tell by his strange look The reason why he writ that book. We never speak as we pass by; No more we're bound by friendly tie. The cause ol this Is very plain He'i not for mo; he's for Jim Blaine. Chicaio Ifewt. FROFF.SRIONAL confidence is awarded Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup. 25 cents a bottle. AN ENDURING FAITH. Kev. Dr. Stern Sketches the History of the Religion of Israel. "The Religion of Israel and Its Straggles " was the theme of a lecture delivered yesterday by the Rev. Dr. Stern at the Temple of the Congregation Keneseth Israel. It was impossible, the rabbi said, to speak of the religion of Israel without recalling the desperate struggles it cost toestablish It. - It was, In its Inception, a radical revolution against the religious ideas of those by whom it was surrounded, and its progress was marked by a constant struggle against the idolatrous worship of fanatical and warlike tribes, who defended their religion at the point of the sword. Long after Israel had established the worship ol the true God her prophets and teachers were forced to wage perpetual warfare against the devotees of Baal. Dating the origin of the conflict at the time of the Prophet Elijah, probably in the ninth century, " before the commonly accepted era," the speaker traced the history of Israel through the dark days ot tho captivity, and then spoke at considerable length of the influence of the Mosaic code as giveu to Israel by the Prophets Ezra and Neiieiniah. As a civil code he characterized tho Mosaic law as worthy of all honor, but as a religious system he regarded it as a conspicuous failure, burdened as it was with obscure forms and ceremonies. Its Influence, the speaker said, had isolated Israel from the rest of the world and built about her a wall as impenetrable as that which held the millions of China in the bonds of ignorance and superstition. "The intervention of tho victorious Alexander opened a breach and let in t he light of Greek thought upon the religion of Israel. He was one of those providentinl messengers employed by Divinity for breaking down the artificial barriers between the races of men and compelling intercourse of thought among the nations. The speaker traced the struggles of the religion ot Israel no further than the beginning of the Christian era, but argued that a faith thus established through adversity would survive tho struggles ol the future as it had those ol the past. ROCKY ROAD TO CHICAGO. The Matthew S. ytiuy Colored Republican Club Struggling to Raise Junketing Money. The piano stood silent in a corner of " Gill " Ball's dancing academy last night. A meeting of the Matthew Stanley Quay Club had been called for the purpose of listening to the report of the " committee on ways and means to get to the Chicago Convention." The committee on transportation had been discharged a week ago when they had brought in the discouraging report that the railroad rates to Chicago and return were so high that the members of tiie club would probably have to walk if they wanted to go. During the past week, howover, a scheme has been devised. A ball is to be given early in May and the officers and members of the organization aro now striving to sell three thousand tickets, at one dollar each, among the polllicians of the city. The tickets were placed in envelopes, ten in each, and handed to tho members of the club last night. It is expected that every politician to whom an envelope is presented will not hesitate to buy at least five of the tickets. Besides this, envelopes containing tickets have been addressed to different persons of prominence, accompanied by the following circular : Matthew Stanley Qi - ay Ci.rn, ' He a no i' art Kits, 720 Lomhakd Strkkt.

Miss Elizabeth P. Peabody is living in Boston this winter at the West End with her sister, Mrs. Horace Mann. Miss Peabody is one of the most remarkable women of her lime. She will be eighty years of age on the 13th of April next, on which day her friends intend celebrating her birthday in her own parlors. Her former pupils will be invited to bo present, so far as may be possible, and the friends of her early life who yet remain will grace her birthday festival. Mrs. Oliver Wendell Holmes is one of these pupils of Miss Peabody, and I think Miss Ellen Emerson is another. Miss Peabody is almost entirely blind, but she has devoted tho winter to writing personal letters to Senators and Congressmen in behalf of the Piute Indians, in whom she takes great interest. She writes entirely by the sense of feeling, seldom blotting a page or running over the edge. Sho is extremely fond of being read to and insists on being kept au couraut with all the current events of the day. M iss Peabody is six years older than Margaret Fuller and some four or five years younger than Mrs. Alcotl, Her mind is as clear as if she were eighteen instead of eighty. Perhaps no living woman at date has so much of vital interests In her life as has Miss Peabody. She has known and been on terms of personal intimacy with irustofthe leading people for more than half a century and her reminiscences are very valuable for their permauent Interest as matters of literary history. SPOILING niS SUNDAY'S FUN. A "Well - Known Sliop - Keeper Takes a Header Into the Delaware Instead of a Traiu. A neatly dressed man walked out ou tho Race street wharf, Delaware river, yesterday morning at half - past nine. He enjoyed the view, tripped ou the string - piece and went head first into the river.

Chatting Pleasantly About Plays Facility With Which She Speaks English. Mile. Rhea had just removed her traveling wraps last night, and was twisting her luxuriant black hair into a coll that she pierced with a silver Javelin, when a stream of callers began pouring In. " Ab," she said, " I so like to receive my friends at home," and, judging from the pleasant way in which she chatted with her visitors, she spoke truthfully. "At night," she continued, "I see thousands of friends at the theatre, but there I am on exhibition and the footlights separate an actress from those before her much more than non - professional people suppose. In my own parlorl am more like what I wish to appear." Since her last visit to Philadelphia Mile. Khea has lost much of her French accent and she now speaks English almost perfectly, and the trace of her native pronunciation that remains is quaint, pretty and musical. Around her were grouped a score of actors, managers, reporters and friends In private lue, and she gossiped with them on any number of topics. This is a fair sample of the way her tongue moved in response to ques tions that were put to her: "Ah, so much rain I begin to fear that we will have no spring this year," and she rolled her eyes in a pathetic, last - act - of - Camllle way. Then, turning to another questioner: "Certainly, I have seen Miss Terry, and is she not a charming actress?" Her hear ers bowed in acquiescence. Then she drifted to Henry Irving and praised in unstinted terms his ability as a stage manager and tho artistic taste be displays in arranging the beautiful stage pic tures that make his theatrical productions so eflective. KIND WORDS FOR MAHT ANDERSON. "Iam afraid," she remarked, after a burst of enthusiasm, "that the people of this country, quick as they are to appreciate excellence in play ing, do not clearly understand the merits of Mary Anderson. I know Sarah Bernhardt intimately, She is a great actress and a strong favorito abroad. The average theatre - goer will say that Camille is her strongest characterization. I do not think it is. Her conception of tho part differs from mine, although I must admit that Camille has never been a favorito character of mine. Women, however, love to cry over Camille'a woes and managers Insist upon its production. It is undoubtedly one of the most pop ular emotional plays of its school. I like ' Adilcnno ' much better. Indeed, I may iu time like ' Frott Erou' as well as either of the other plays I have spoken of." Here some one asked her whether she did not find It very difficult to study plays in English after having appeared in the French versions. "Very," she replied; "but tho work is not so difficult since I have begun to appreciate the various shades of meaning of many English words. Even now I find that it takes me about three times as long to study an English part as it docs tocommlt French lines to memory." A theatrical manager, who had up to this point been silently sucking the beaten silver head of his bamboo cane, felt, that he should add his mite to the general conversation and inquired: " Mamzell, how do you like Philadelphia?" The actress smiled at the manager's prehistoric query and answered: "It Is one of my favorite cities. In it 1 have many warm personal friends, who when I came a stranger gave me a generous welcome." These sentiments satisfied tho manager, who nodded, returned the silver cane - head to his mouth and said nothing more. SHE I.IKES AMERICA. Mile. Khea was iu a talkative mood and she rattled ou unceasingly. She told in un exceedingly grnphio way tho story of tho Czar of Rus sia's" assassination, which occurred while sho was playing in St. Petersburg. ' Sho likes Russia, but fears Nihilism. In referring to this country she went off In this style: "While I was in Russia I was happy, but I did not then know how much better and sweeter life is in this grand, beautiful America." She dislikes Canada and is enraptured with New Orleans, where she says she saw negro children chattering French as glibly as Parisians. She complimented the taste Ameri can women displayed In dress and declared that in no part of Europe are pretty women as com mon as in this country. At ten o'clock the levee came to an end and the vivacipus actress said good night to her visitors. TIIIIiD STREET CHAT. The Meaning of the Present Demand for Good Kailroad Bonds. About thirty thousand more shares of stocks changed hands last week than during the week preceding, yet there was little, if any, moro real business done in the market. The swappin among the traders was a little more active, and that Is about all that it amounted to. 1 he com mission houses are doing practically nothing in stocks, but it is a noticeable tact that the market for the better class of railway bonds is much more active than it was some months ago, and the pop ularity of this class of securities appears to be consiantly increasing. As bonds are a com mod - Uy which tho shilling - chasers rarely, if ever, trade in and as these securities are gradually be coming scarcer and higher, the inference is nat ural that they are being bought for investment. This conclusion is supported by the testimony of many brokers, through whom the purchases aro made. While it Is not true that business men, as a class, are coming into the street, as they did two or three years ago, to Invest their sur plus profits for tho reason that they have not the same surplus profits to Invest It is said to bo true that many capitalists who cannot readily find a paying market for their money are Investing in railroad bonds that will bear investigation instead of in the stocks of embryo, half - built or superfluous railroads or speculative construction companies, as they were wont to do before the experience of the last two years taught them that that sort of thing, though well calculated to keep up tho circulation of the blood, was wearingon the system and ruinous to the pocket. There is not near so much fun in buying a sure 6 per cent, bond, which may not fluctuate 1 per cent, in a year, as there Is In handling a fancy stock that Jumps up So one day and falls down J10 the Dext, but Is much better for the digestion and not so dangerous to the future welfare of the wile and children. During the last two years some men with money have discovered this great truth and are guiding their financial operations by tho light of it. No doubt this state of affairs Is very vexatious to Mr. Gould and other great men, who have their tin boxes full of stocks that they have been vainly trying to sell for somo months, but the longer those stocks stay in the great men's tin boxes the better It will be for the public. A story was buzzed all over the street last week to tho effect that Ex - Prcsldent J. W. Jones was selling Buffalo common. This report Mr. Jones denied with an energy and directness that left no room to doubt that the story was a lie. Mr. Jones says he has not sold any Buffalo common for two years. It Is a safe bet that he wishes ho had. Not that we have anything to say against Buffalo, but what a pot of money he could have mado by selling it, say at 20 aud buying It back at T The advanco In government bonds last week ranged from to per cent., the latter in the 4 per cents, which sold up to 12 - IJjj for tho coupons. The rise was due to an active demand from institutions, and It is estimated that over $10,000,000 of governments changed hands in New York during the week. The Beauty of tho Frellnghuysen Family, Washington Dispatch in the New York Journal.

If Black Silks are renowned, in the sense .of greatness, it is because certain men who have devoted their lives to their production, have gone to the bottom of the delicate problems that attend their making. How many - thousand threads? How to maintain strength? How impart the rich color, yet not affect the vitality of the fabric? The weave and finish involved many points these men have finally compassed, and while they hold their secrets we sell their goods. They dare not fall back in quality one iota. Their reputation has been too dearly earned. Can we any better afford to guarantee a Silk that is doubtful? We've trusted such names as Bonnet, Guinet and Tappis - sier, and trust them to - day. The prices we are able to put on famous makes might well arouse a suspicion, did we not know our men as well as we trust you know us, and so our guarantee holds good, even at the lower prices. We have made arrano - emerifq with one of the leading Black bilk manufacturers ot Lyons, that enable us to offer his froods at a lower figure than has yet been reached at retail for the nnnlirv that is offered in this remarkable lot.
