THE EVEKIFG GAZETTE: TUESDAY, JANUARY ,7 1838. Evening Gazette. f> pr TKRHS! lo cm. I Per Year— DBT.IVRRBD BY OABR1KV TCE3DAT, JAN. 17. IBS. BEX BUTLER when in the Hou«a was terribly aggressive and there was no man,not even Mr Blaine. who la so ready in debate and so quick at repartee, who cured to tackle him. His attack upon ThornaaSwann, of Maryland, fairly broke that man's heart. Ho he scored terribly Sam Cox, Fames- worth and others. Perfect master of language and having complete control of his temper he was without a peer in hia line. What Butler was in the House eighteen years ago, Ingalls, without being at all like him, is in the Senate. To be sure there is not so great opportunity to combat In that utald chamber, but he is ready for it when it comes. Never did brother Senator throw down gauntlet, that the Kansas Senator was not ready to pick it up Not is bis sword of Damascus edge or Saladln's sharpness. His periods are tolerably rounded but they often cut with saw-like raggedness. He asks DO quarters and he gives none. H« deems himself peer of all and will take no insinuations from the gentleman from the southern bailiwick any quicker than from those living in colder clime. He is tall, dignified, wears his coat well : buttoned about his throat, is slender, wears glasses and talks with rasping energy when he gets warmed up to it. It is hinted that he has Presidential aspirations. DAKOTA FEELS that Indeed she is out in tl-e cold just now, the weather bobbing down so low that the mercury freezes in the thermometer and bursts the machine. She has been knocking valiantly at the temple of States, seeking permission to enter, but the powers that be will not have it. So, now, she has to endure the untinctured Manitoba blasts, cold as the faces of unrelenting Congressmen, and lament her fate. ' One ia hardly prepared to say that her admission into the Union would cause her winters to become less vigorous, but it is certain that her people would feel that winter would be less dreary if only they were the 39th of the then 39 States. Of a truth, there is no reason in the world for keeping Dakota out, except the single one that her vote would count at a presidential election, a thing not at all desired by those who have the say-so. Nevada has not a twelfth of the population of Dakota and Florida not a fourth and Delaware not a fourth, and Colorado not a third, and still these are all States. But they happened to be In sympathy with the dominating party when they asked to . be let in. If Dakota would change her politics, she might get in; but, no, for the Senate would then be against her. It Is only her bard luck that she has grown up at a time when Congress is of one party in the House and of another party in the Senate. NOTHING CAN be" more ridiculous than the jealousy of the House for the Senate. The former body resent Indignantly the claim, of the latter to be the upper House and declare that both are equal, with the slight advantage in their favor that they are fresh from the people and elected by the people, while the Senators are elected by a few politicians at the State capitals. The Senators elected for six years and in no sense dependent upon the people do lord it somewhat over the members chosen but for two and likely not to be reelected. Kvery time an appropriation IB made for the Senate then again is renewed the fight. The Senators pay their clerks higher salaries and have twice the amonut of help that the House does. But they are not likely to be able to carry this extravagance " much farther, for the House has re-' solved that it will have in every case all that the Senate does. It was not Intended when the Constitution was made that either House should be superior to the other. The fact that two Senators should come from each State did not show so disparagingly as now, when several of the States have upwards of flfteeen and one has thirty- four members. New York, Pennsyl- rania and Virginia and possibly North Carolina were then the only States that had any number of representatives and of course they hacLn t nearly so many as now. Senators from New York, Illinois, Pennsylvania and other States of great population naturally feel that their representation is of infinitely greater • importance than those from other States. And it la human nature for them to show their superiority. It is only a few members who ar e reelected, and it not being certain who they are, it follows that member* do not feel it worth their while to cultivate the acquaintance of any members outalde of their own States, except(it be.those of note. Of course a Senator Is different. He has six full years before him; time enough to get acquainted and time enough to make a reputation. Besides, more Senators are reelected proportionate than members, although Mr. Edmunds and Mr. Sherman are the only men serving out four terms. Mr. Hansom is serving his third, but quite a number are serving their second. Asa fact, Senators ought to bo there for life. That body Bervea as a superb check upon tb'e impetuosity and rawness of the House, »nd if it were composed exclusively of experienced men and if they were there without fear of being retired, they would do better than now. Oftentimes party dictation rushes a bill through the Senate when the better judgment of the Senate protests and when it would not be done if that body had no fear of party before lia eyea. Of course, though, it id not po»- oible to nave Uie Senators elected for Uf«; Out wtn ugaiuit American pol- icy. What can b^ done, though, Is to tmiUte Vermont, which keeps Judge Kdmunds in hia place and Ohio which retains Mr. Slierman and North Caro- iliia which keeps Mr. Ransom there. \Ve venture to assert without fear of contradiction that three of the most able and useful members of the Senate are these three oldest members. But foi all that we have said about the Senators, the House would protest vigorously. It dislikes it that Senators have longer terms than they and they protest that they should be elected by the people just as they are. THAT MORAL little Journal, Our Sunday afternoon, is always a welcome visitor. It it just the right kind of reading for Sunday afternoon. IT 19 A burning shame that Lamar should have been confirmed, nor could be have been but for landgrabbers and railroad Influence. lie is not a lawyer, but he Is a boastfully disloyal man to his country. Four more of his stripe on the bench would undo all our war legislation with a vengence. Why not send in Jeff Davis for the next vacancy? He is not one whit more disloyal than Lamar: besides, he is some years older and will die earlier. THIS COUNTRY is to have"^ fish commissioner at a salary of 85,000 per annum. Hitherto, until his death, Hon. Spencer F. Baird discharged the duties of this office without pay. He did a great and noble work, enough, had he done nothing else to place him among the great benefactors of the earth. It would require columns of this paper to tell what Incalculable good Mr. Baird did and how easy be has made it for his successor to get along in the office. Thousands and thousands of private ponds owe their supply of Qsh to Mr. Baird. He has excited interest in the subject all over the land. To his agency Is due the fact 1 that many rivers and lakes teem with fish. It was his hope and expectation that a time would come when every farmer would have his pond and grow his nsh as he grows his poultry. It is easier, far less trouble, he insisted to make a pond, getting a water supply from one's well, and thus supply the family wita Qsh, then it is to care for a hundred head of poultry. Indeed the fish, once the pond was constructed would really be no trouble at all. Fish is an excellent article of diet, and serves admlrablj_to break the sameness of bill of fare in country places. In summer it comes in capitally, when it is too warm to eat much meat and when one feels that a purely vegetable diet is insufficient. Mr. Baird like other innovators suffered from the ridicule, banter and sneers of smart-Alecks all over the land, but he lived to receive the apologies and homage of these men. Now Congress considers his work of sufficient importance to be presided over by a man with a salary equal to that of a Congressman. It need scarcely be hoped that the peer of Mr. Baird can be found to take his place. —"Do I look used up V enquired a man who came into our office this morning, "I feel so, anyhow. Let me tell you my haps and mishaps during the past three hours. In the first place my horse kicked me when I went in the stable to feed him this morning. A fact; and if I had been a foot or so further off he'd ha' killed me dead. I afterwards hitched him to a cutter and started down town. Before I had got three blocks, blamed if I didn't come so near to running over a woman and child that tny heart got up in my throat. A little further along in turning a corner, my cutter upset anil I was spilled Into the street. Before I bad proceeded a block further I collided with another cutter and got spilled out a second time. By that time I found out that this wasn't a good day for sleighing and so I turned the horse ab ut and started for home. Yes, sir. I did and what's more, in passing through the gate, I ran against a post and nearly ruined my cutter. Then I started to walk down town, and sure's I'm a sinner, I fell down three times, and in crossing Third street, I was so close to being run over that one of the runners of a cutter passed across the toe of my right foot. I'm that sore and bruised I can hardly walk and I wish to goodness I was home without walking there. Something's sure to happen to me before I get back. I just feel it in my bones." —Last night's session of the city Council was presided over by Mayor Elliott. Alderman Lawrence turned over 87,000 of bridge bonds duly canceled, which were placed on file The city attorney read an ordinance in relation to the driving of sleighs without bells within the city limits, and affixing a penalty for its violation. The ordinance was adopted unaminously, and goes into effect ten days after next Tnursday, or on January 29th next He H!SO read an ordinance in relation to vagrancy, to the effect that tramps shall be brought before justices and fined; falling to pay which they shall be committed, and ordered to leave the State for a period of one year. This ordinance was also passed unaminously. The plans of the proposed city building were presented by Alderman Werntz. The city attorney reported that the case of Mrs. Merrill vs. the city of Sterling had been decided by the Appellate court against the city, and added that the previous council had directed if the city was beaten in this said court it should be taken to the supreme court. Members spoke at some length upon the question of taking it to the supreme court. It was anally ' referred to the judiciary committee! with power to act. Without coming to any vote upon the matter, the sense of the aldermen speaking was that the payment of the money to Mrs. Merrill [ should be realated to the utmost; hence that it ihouid be taken to the supreme court. P!nppln(£ a Ladj'n Tiu**. Unfortunately tho mnshcr Is not the only mule iiTi'sanco In Urooklyn. A distant nnd much more offensive relative of his la the unknown rufllnn. who, a few months ago, made his practices, although not his personality, notorions by maliciously soiling eipenslre gowns with tobacco Juice In tbe neighborhood ot Dr. Talmage's church. A few nlghta ago an equally offensive and ruffianly, but much more practical and dangerous, Individual made his appearance on Fulton street. Hia victim was a young lady who resides within c:i«y walking distance of the bridge. She had crossed from Jew York In a bridge car between 7 and 8 o'clock in the evening and was walklag up Fulton street alone, not dreaming of Insult and still less of Tiulenco on that thoroughfare at BO early an hour. Less than halt a block above Sands street she received a sharp, stinging slap on the face. She turned, surprised and frightened, andjsaw that her assailant was a well dressed, gentlemanly looking fellow. "I beg your pardon, miss," he said, "It was a mistake," and he darted oft without another word. A dozen men witnessed the assault, but the only one who took apparent notice of it confined his attention to the young lady and not to her assailant. "Oh, that was a terrible blow, mlsa; did It hurt yon?" he said. "Yes," replied the still frightened and confused girl, and wishing to avoid further notice she hnrrlod away, wondering, when she began to collect her senses, If the man who slapped her face really mistook her for an acquaintance, and, if so, why he chose to greet an acquaintance in so startling a fashion. She learned all about It when she reached home, for she then discovered that the fellow had stolen from her ear a valuable earring. "Did I report the occurrence to the police?" she said to the Rambler, after ho bad heard her story. "No, of course I didn't. That wouldn't bring back my earring, and besides I don't think you would find many girls of your acquaintance who would care to see their names In the newspapers In connection with such an occurrence. I am glad enough that notoriety hasn't been added to my fright and my loss, but I don't think I shall ever feel safe again when I am out alone after dark."—"liambler" In Brooklyn Eagle. The Distance of the Starn. The distance of the star Alpha Contanrl may be stated In round numbers to be 20,000,000,000,000 of miles. Now, a billion' means a million of millions, so that the distance of Alpha Centauri may be stated to He twenty millions of millions of miles. Let us now try to form some conception, however Imperfect, of the amazing distance. Let us suppose a railway train to leave the earth traveling day and night at the rate of fifty miles an hour without stoppages. In six months It would reach the moon, in 200 years It would reach the sun and In 6,000 years it would reach the planet Neptune, the orbit of which forms the extreme known limit of the planetary system. The same train, however, would not reach the star Alpha Centauri In less than 42,000,000 years. One more illustration may he useful. Comets, in general, revolve in very eccentric orbits. When a comet Is in the perihelion of Its orbit It is comparatively near to the earth; on the other hand, when It Is at the aphelion It Is remote—in many Instances very remote—from the earth. For Instance, the celebrated comet of 18f>8, known as Donnti's comet, one of the greatest comets of modern times, at the time of, its passage of the perihelion was distant from the sun 60,000,000 miles; but when it has attained the aphelion of itg orbit (which will occur In about 1,000 years hereafter) its distance from the earth will not be less tlmn 80,000,000,000 miles. Now our typical railway train starting from the earth would not reach the aphelion of the orbit of Donati's comet In less than 00,000 years, and yet the aphelion distance of Dnnatl'g comet Is only one seven-hundredth part of the distance from the earth to Alpha Centauri, the nearestof thelbced stars.—Good Words. Jewlih niehlanden In the Caucasus. The Caucasian Jews are Inordinately fond of green stuff, consuming it In quantities that amaze a stranger. In partaking of food, as In the mode of service, the old Jewish customs are strictly followed. A wooden platter (or, if a guest be present, 'a handsome copper dish) is placed upon a carpet on the floor. On this are set two cakes of unleavened bread covered with a cloth—woolen on ordinary occasions, but of silk on Sabbaths and festivals. Salt, onions, garlic and fruit are ranged round the bread, and all sit down, upon the floor. The master pours water over_ . his two hands, recites a blessing, then uncovers the bread, breaks the upper loaf Into as many pieces as there ore males present, and gives each ono piece. The pieces are dipped Into salt three times and eaten. The second loaf is then served in like fashion and distributed among the females. The mistress of the house brings In. the first dish herself; then, if a stranger be present, veils and withdraws. Everything Is put on table, or rather on the floor, at once; and It is customary to take a little of each dish served. When roast meats are eaten, a sharpened piece of wood is employed as an aid to the fingers,' but ordinarily fingers alone are de rlgueur. The highland Jews prepare aa excellent "mountain dew," and drink large quantities of tho spirit without seeming to experience any intoxicating effects.—St. James' Gazette. Morning Walk In the City. Somebody is always asking why business men do not more generally walk part of the way to their business every morn- Ing. There are several good reasons why they do not. First of all, they ore apt to have half a bucket of water thrown on them by some heedless Jeames, who always sets apart 9 a. m., or thereabouts, as the proper time to wash the sidewalks. Then they will probably have to walk past three or four lordly gentlemen's gentlemen who are engaged in knocking the dust out of the familiar door mat by striking It against a lamp post. ' These ore the dangers that menace the morning walker In the Bide streets. Nor is he any better off when he gets to a business avenue. By a sort of sacred tradition, about half the shops on such avenues are violently swept out at exactly the hour when business men are going down town, and the only way to escape from the Intolerable dust is to walk in the middle of the street, tlaliily, New York is not built for the convenience of business men who want to walk.—New York Tribune. Trick of • Bankrupt. An English bankrupt having pleaded that hia failure was due to tho default of the government of San Salvador in paying Ita obligations, the consul of that country has published a card announcing thaiWiis government has never Suspended payment, and has no obligations abroad except a railroad loan, the interest upon which I* paid promptly.—New York Sun.

A reservoir nndcr the car Is UUed with air by the action of the brakes, aud closed by a valve, connecting with pipea leading over the car and into tho chimueys of. the lamps.

ANGRY SCENES IN THE ROYAL HOUSEHOLD OF GERMANY. The Empreu Dornn't G«t Along- 'Well with Her Bniband, and She Detects the Crown Prlncesc— Faotl Not Oener* •Ilj Known. When Emperor William receives a stranger he looks at him sharply and (fives the Impression that he ia turning over In his mind whether the person before him would be more suitable as a hussar, a cuirassier, a dragoon or a mere infantryman. Ills face is wrinkled to an extraordinary degree, and the look of the eyes ia somewhat sod. But the face lightens op with a kindly smile as the old .gentleman gives a military twist upward to hts snow white mustaches. The emperor talks in short sentences. His conversation is of the brusque, stocky nature affected by old soldiers who prefer a hearty shake ot the hand to fine speeches. He used to be able to speak French pretty well, but has now almost forgotten it, only remembering a few set ceremonial phrases, which he uses in addressing the French ambassador or ambassadress. English he still speaks correctly, having learned it thoroughly when, after the sad events of 1848, he was forced to spend almost two years In England. The emperor has never had any pretensions to b« considered a man Interested in science or art. Together with Prince Bismarck and Field Marshal Count Moltke, he takes pride in never having set his foot inside a museum or exhibition of pictures. The only French novel which he has ever read Is tho "Wandering Jew." His table Is covered with military pamphlets, and every week he glances through The London Illustrated News, Graphic and The French Illustration. There Is a certain kind of mysticism pervading the old gentleman's manner nnd conversation. It Is even discernible in the sympathetic tones of his voice. He ascribes everything to Divine Providence. Nor must it be supposed for one Instant that this Is merely a figure of speech to be produced for the benefit of the public. On the contrary, his life shows that ho Is pervaded with the idea that In everything he is the mere instrument of the Almighty. AN ILL TBMPEBKD EMPKHSS. Early In the morning, about 10 o'clock, tho empress makes a point of visiting the emperor in his study. This is the only tune during the whole of the twenty-four hours when husband and wife see each other without witnesses. Of course, nothing certain Is known about their conversation on these occasions, but presumably politics are not referred to. Since the fall of her favorite Count Arnim the empress has withdrawn from all Interference in the affairs of tho government, and has even become reconciled to her former own particular enemy, Prince Bismarck. It Is somewhat amusing to know that the only newspaper which she reads is Tho Paris - Temps, —which she prefers to all others, even The Cologne Gazette. In the evening, toward 10 o'clock, the emperor makes his way up stairs toward the empress' tea table, where he Invariably spends about twenty minutes to half an hour in gossiping with her and with her pet cronies, the Duke and Duchess of Sagan. He always maintains the most complete equanimity of temper, and If his wife is more than usually Irritable he merely shrugs his shoulders with a smile and mutters something about her "Russian blood," alluding, no doubt, to the fact of her being a direct descendant of the crazy Emperor Paul of Russia. The subject which above all others forms the favorite topic of the empress' conversation is tbo unpleasantness which exists between herself and. her danghter-ln-law, the crown princess, whom, notwithstanding all appearances to the contrary, she most cordially detests. Both the emperor and empress feel and believe that the moment the new sovereign succeeds to the throne most of their old servants will be got rid of and perhaps the whole policy of the'empire changed. The empress Is most bitter on the subject, and often asserts that when her husband dies she will take up her quarters at Rome, since her life not only at Berlin, but even anywhere else in Germany, would be rendered perfectly impossible by the now empress, whom she alludes to as an alien with new fangled notions, whose pernicious influence has already deprived her of the affection and respect of her only son. THE EMPEROR'S SEVERITY. '*[> Meanwhile at the palace of the crown prince the exasperation at the present state of affairs dally grows Intense. So jealous is the old emperor of every vestige of his power, that he makes a point of keeping the crown prince as much as possible a stranger to everything that Is going on. The authority of the head of the family Is one of the most sacred principles of the Hohenzollern dynasty, and until 1858, when the present. emperor became prince regent, both he and his wife were subject to the caprices and often ridiculous orders of the, reigning sovereign, who was an elder brother. In their turn the emperor and empress are treating the crown prince, and especially his wife, with a similar and almost incredible severity The prince i> unable to make a single step in any direction or to absent himself from Berlin without his' father's permission, while the crown princess is not even allowed to name a single one of her own ladles in waiting or to choose a governess for her daughters, or to travel, or even to allow her own children to be present at any charitable fete without first obtaining the sanction of her haughty, querulous and frequently Insulting mother in law. The eldest son of the crown prince, Prince William, who is far from being a pleasant youth, Is not particularly liked by either his father or mother. As a natural consequence be ia made a special favorite of by both the empress and emperor, who frequently show their preference for him lu a manner exceedingly painful and insulting toward his parents.—New York Moil and Express. Eviction* In "New Tork City. There are now each year, and there have been for many years, more evictions of tenants by landlords In New York city, with Its population of 1,500,000, than there have been in corresponding periods In all Ireland, with its population of about 5,000,000. Once every few months the American correspondents in London cable to their papers in the United States vivid accounts of heartrending cruelty on the part of English land owners toward unfortunate occupants of shanty houses and poor farms. Once every few years the New York reporters have to write for their papers a story of the misery of a family ejected from the two or three.wretched rooms in a rickety seven story tenement, because the relentless agent of the millionaire owner must have "the money or the rooms." Ireland's woe is not as great aa is New York's. The sheriffs in Ireland do not have so many cases of eviction to deal with In a month as do the marshals of New York's eleven district courts In a week. From June 80, 1885, to June 80, 1888, there were turned out of their homes In all Ireland, according to parliamentary report, 2,088 families, aggregating 8,817 persons. In a similar period, twelve mouths, In New York city there wer» evicted 23,804 families, or 124,020 pertoBi, estimating five member* to a family.
