Recesses the Features Both the Houses. in John Sherman of Ohio Makes Short Speech. Washington, Angust 5.—Tho first session of the Forty-ninth Congress ended this afternoon at 4 o’clock. The session died as it had lived, devoid of incident, interest or activity. Tile oldest member of the House had never seen such a peaceful ending. Tho all-night sos-ions, the rush and clatter of legislative machinery,tho haste to be dono with important work, the sharp rattle of live minutes’ dobate, the leave-taking, tile quiet lunches and sly clink of friendly glasses all were missing. Tho applause that followed tho adjournment, sine die, was almost pathetic. t In tile House the early scenes today were a good deal like the sudden breaking up of a hard winter, stormy and turbulent. They were in marked contrast to those in tho Senate, where there was scarcely a ripple to disturb tho placid flow of tho proceedings. In fact, a stranger going from the riotous hubbub in tho House to tho sleepy precincts of the Senate would almost involuntarily inquire whose obsequies were in progress and where tho corpse was. Soon after the reading of the Journal Mr. Pruden appeared nt tho door bearing a Hies ago from tho President. It conveyed tho intelligence that all were so anxiously awaiting, that that the President had approved the sundry civil, tho deficiency, and the river and harbor appropriations bills. Many grave doubts had been felt concerning the fate of the latter and the announcement was greeted with loud applause. It settled the question of adjournment today. Mr. Randall asked unanimous consent to print in the Record a speech on his tariff bill. Mr. McMillin of Tennessee objected. Mr. Randall appealed to him to withdraw his objection, but with loud words and emphatic gesture he declared that he would not. Randall weut over and sat down beside McMillin and earnestly communed with him for a few minutes. This had the desired effect, as the gentleman from Tennessee withdrew his objections, and Mr. Randall’s request was granted. Mr. Curtin had prepared a long speech on the labor question, in connection with a report on tho investigation of the strike on the Missouri Pacific railroad, and lie asked leave to print. Several members objected, but the ex-governor was not to be battled iii that way. Securing the floor, be spoke live minutes on tile subject, and then asked leave to ‘‘extend his remarks” in tho Record, which, according to usual custom, was granted. The long delay caused by the Baker matter seemed rather to please Mr. Randall and Mr. Holman, as it has prevented the hasty passage of many measures, a rush of which always occurs in the closing hours. Mr. Holman tried still further to cut .these off by moving a recess of an hour, but this was voted down. About 2 o’clock the Houso agreed to the Senate resolut ion to adjourn at 4. Randall, Morrison and Hiscock were appointed a committee, with Edmunds and Harris of the Senate, to wait upon the President and Unform him that Congress was ready to adjourn, provided ho had no further communications to make. The remainder of the time in the House was spent in passing such hills as members were able to call up by unanimous consent. Few bad tho temerity to attempt this without first coddling Mr. Holmes, who stood at his post as objector to the last moment, He was as powerful as tho President Siimself. Anything he did not like tho ooks of was promptly vetoed and that was the end of it. Whenever there was an opening twenty members were on their feet, shaking their bills in the air and shouting “Mr. Speaker.” Happy was he who secured recognition and having placated the Indiana stateman succeeded in getting tjis bill through. The actual closing was exceedingly tame. It was a sort of ‘‘petering out.” Everybody watched the clock, arid at the instant tho hands indicated 4 o’clock the speaker, with a few farewell remarks, brought down liisgaVel and declared the first session of the Forty-ninth Congress at an end. The Senate did but little business today. Several recesses were taken just to pass away the time. The senators had pleutv of time to have gone down to the National Club’s ground and played a game of base ball. The only disturbance in the Senate was created by Mr. Riddleberger, who made a most ridiculous and unseemly exhibition of himself. It is enough to say, in explanation, that he would avoid such performances by joining tho Prohibition party and living up to its principles. When Mr. Harris of Tennessee offered a resolution complimentary to Mr, Sherman for the ability and impartiality with which he had presided over the Senate (Mr.. Hawley being in the chair) Mr. Riddleberger loudly objected to it, voted no, and then called a quorum. A friend led him into an ante-room, where he was soon asleep on a sofa. At 3.57 Mr. Sherman arose and made a few farewell remarks. 'Tile Chamber was so auiet, It seemed like a preacher pronouncing the benediction. Mr. Sherman began a little too early. His speech was not so long as he thought it was, and did not hold out to cover the time. At 3.58 lie declared an adjournment. Most of the statesmen had trunks packed ready to “pull out” By the first train. Tomorrow’s sun will find few of them in Washington. SENATE HOIN OS. Edmunds Objects a Little—Takiae .Recesses—Sherman's Speech. Washington. August 5.—The Senate was In a caustic frame of mind when it assem-' bled, as was evidenced by the discussion following the motion to consider tho final adjournment resolution. The absence of President Cleveland was harshly criticised by some, and pending his arrival the Senate went into secret session, and there amended tile final adjournment resolution, fixing the hour at 4 p. rn. It was then adopted and Messrs. Edmunds and Harris were ap- fointqd a committee to wait upon the resident aud inform him that Congress was prepared to adjourn. At the close of tli9 recess Mr. Edmunds reported that the. committee of tho two nro the great ports of tho United States. The rejection of the Senate amendment was simply a declaration that no matter how unprotected tho country might be, absolutely nothing would be doi e. The government was actually embarrassed with riches and overburdened with surplus revenue. A party had come into power without a definite policy, not agreed concerning finance, not agreed concerning tariff, hut in search of a war cry. What did tho Democrats mean bv rejecting an idea of this sort? The very man who was now waiting for his grave was one of the strongest advisers in favor of coast and naval defences. He believed that nothing more acceptable to tho American people could bo done. And yet lie doubted very much whether the Houso of Representatives would be allowed to take a vote on the question by some singular combination of reasons. Mr. Allison corrected his statement of yesterday by making the appropriations of the present fiscal year exceed thoso of last vear by 846.000.000 instead of $33,000,000. Then Mr. Edmunds changed his motion for a recess so as lo make it extend to 3.64. and entered Into a discussion with the chair as to the parliamentary practice and rule iii case of tho absence of a quorum. Tho question could not bo decided by submitting it to the Senate, as tile same difficulty about a quorum would arise there, and so by general consent there was a suspension of any attempt at business until the hands on the clock dial indicated 3.45. At that moment a message from tho President was announced. Mr. Edmunds interposed against tho reception of the message cfh tho ground that no business could be done in tile absence of a quorum. Tho chair decided that tho message could be received. Mr. Edmunds—I appeal from tho decision of tho chair. The chair—The chair cannot entertain an appeal in the absence of a quorum. (Laugh-ter.) Mr. Edmunds —Let that be entered on tho journal. Tho message was then received. It was a mere announcement that tho President had signed certain bills. After another short delav the moment of adjournment arrived, and tho chair said: Senators, before announcing the termination of this session of the Senate, I beg leave to return to each of you my grateful thanks for your uniform courtesy and kindness to me as your presiding officer, and especially for the resolution of today in which vou have expressed your approval. This session hasbeen distinguished by the great number and variety of subjects which have been considered and by the marked absence of political controversies The varied needs and aims of a rapidly growing country have occupied more of the time of tho Senate. A short recess will enable you to greet your constituents, and I hope and trust that carli ofyou will return next December with renewed health and strength to your important duties. In pursuance of the resolution of the two houses of Congress, I now declare this session closed sitio die. HOENE HOIN ON. Ensuing Small Rill*. Taking Rc-eciies, ami A cl juiirniug. Washington, August 5.—In the House today a quorum did not appear till 1.45 o’clock. Tho adjournment resolution was taken up and the amendment of the Senate fixing tho hour of adjournment at 4 o’clock today was concurred in. Oil motion of Mr. Lutterworth of Ohio, a Senato bill was passed appropriating an additional $35,000 for tho selection of a site for tho congressional library. At 2.25 the committee appointed to wait upon the President and inform him that Congress was ready to adjourn appeared at the bar of the House and announced that it had performed its duty, and that tho President iiad nothing further to communicate to Congress. On motion of Mr. O’Neill of Pennsylvania, a Senate bill was passed accepting the gift of tho Grant relics. Tho House at 3.15 took a recess for half an hour. Then Mr. Hiscock of New York inured to suspend the minutes and pass the bill iegu-la'ing lite duties on tobacco wrappers. Mr. Hiscock spoke in support of bis motion until seven minutes before four. Tho next throe minutes were consumed in attempting to secure consent to have the majority report on the tariff hill printed in the Record, and then the speaker, without any preliminary remarks, declared tho House adjourned sine die. THE FOKTY-JfJVTH COMO RESS*, and it* IieiU- and sailors; authorizing the temporary ap- I poiutinentof an acting assistant treasurer of the United States in the absence of both tho treasurer and assistant treasurer; to direct the commissioner of labor to i tnako an investigation as to convict labor: to establish additional life saving i stations at various points on tho I Atlantic and Pacific coasts and on the I great lakes; providing that manufactured ! tobacco, snuff and cigars may be removed j for export without payment of tan, and repealing the law providing for inspectors i of tobacco. In addition to the foregoing the subject ; matter of various special bills lias been enacted into law in tho several appropria- ! lion bills as follows: tho commissioner of agriculture to purchase and destroy dis- j eased animals whenever in his judgment ! it is essential to prevent the spread of pieuro - pneumonia from one State into another: the sundry civil appropriation bill, authorizing tho secretary of the treasury to issue silver certificates in denominations of 81. $2 and $5. also appropriating $40,000 for the eatablishniofit of an industrial homo iii Utah for women who renounce polygamy and for their children. Of the more important matters submitted for the action.of Congress, upon which further action is necessary before they can become laws, tho Cullom interstate commerce hill passed by the Senate and amended in the House by the substitution, of tho “Reagan,” or House bill, is now in conference. The Mexican pension hill passed the House and was amended in lite Senate and sent to a conference committee, where it is still ponding. The Morrison tarifi bill was reported favorably from tho ways and means comthittee, but its consideration was objected to in tho Houso and it remains on the calendar. Tito Randall tariff bill was reported adversely from the ways and moans committee, but was placed on the calendar, whore it remains. The Blair educational bill passed tim Senato early in the session, was referred to tho Houso committee on education, but has not yet been reported. Bills to establish a uniform system of bankruptcy were introduced iii both Houses. That introduced into the Senate by Senator Hoar was reported favorably, and is on tho Benito calendar. That introduced in the House by Mr. Collins was also favorably reported, and is on tho calendar. Tho bill to prevent members of Congress acting as attorney for railroads passed tho Senate, but that action was afterwards reconsidered, and tho measure sent to the judiciary committee, from which a substitute measure was reported which is pow on tho Senato calendar. The Edmunds bill to give the President tho power to appoint postmasters and a largo class of subordinate Federal officials under the several departments of tho government without consent of tho Senate was referred to the judiciary committee, but no further action on it has been taken. The Senate resolution for tiro consideration of executive nominations in opon session adversely reported front the committee on rules aud debated at length early in the session, was made a special order tor December 8. Cleveland and the Surplus. Washington, August 5.—Tho surplus resolution lies in the heap of debris. The President did not veto it; he simply killed it by not signing it. This course was just as effectual as a message of disapproval. The great number of speeches mado on both sides of tho resolution will nor bo wasted, as they will be used as campaign ammunition. Few of those who advocated the resolution believed lite President would sign it, but all had the opportunity to put themselves on record. The President evidently believes that tile secretary of the treasury, with the discretionary powers conferred upon hint by existing laws, is able to grapple successfully with the surplus question. 500,000 Pounds of Paper Wanted. Washington, August 5. — Bids wore opened at the Treasury Department today for the purchase of about 500,000 pounds of paper for use in printing internal revenue stamps during tho present fiscal year. Tile bidders were Alex Balfour of Philadelphia, the Fairchild Paper Company of Boston aud William J. gingerly of Philadelphia. The contract will be awarded in a few days. New England Postmasters.

Resume of the scion lutive Wark. Washington, August 5.—Tho first session of the forty-ninth Congress, just ended, began Monday, December 7, 18S5, and has lasted seven months and twenty-eight days. or 241 days, exclusive of Sundays. The Senate was in session 104 and the House 185 days. There wore introduced in the two houses 13,202 measures, 10,014 being House bills and 314 House joint resolutions, and 2801 bills and eighty-three joint resolutions of tho Senate. The measures proposed for enactment exceeded in number by 2949 those introduced at the first session of the Forty-eightli Congress, which sat for seven months and four days, or 165 days of actual working time. They covered all sorts of subjects, but comparatively few were of national importance. A very small percentage of the whole number introduced became laws; a comparatively small number succeeded in getting through tho committees to which they were referred, and reaching the calendars of the respective houses. The total number of measures that passed both bouses was HOI, being 241 Senate bills and SCO bills which originated in tho House. Of those 1095 were received by the President, and of that number 814 were approved, 159 became laws without the President’s signature, 115 weie vetoed and nine failed for want of signature at tbe time of adjournment, ten days not having elapsed since they reached tbe President. Of the new laws 746 were House measures and 241 Senate measures. The laws that became such by limitation were, with two exceptions, private pensions and relief bills. Of the measures vetoed by the President thirty-six were Senate and seventy-seven House bills. Twenty-eight ol the Senate bills vetoed were private pension bills, three were for the erection of public buildings, one was to grant to railroads the right of way through the Indian reservation in northern Montana; one to make Springfield, Mass., a port of delivery, one to provide that the bodies of paupers, criminals arid strangers dying within the District of Columbia, unclaimed within a specified time after death, shall be turned over to the medical college, one to give quit title to settlers oil the Des Moines river lands, and one to provide for the construction of a bridge over Lake Champlain. Of the seventy-seven House bills disapproved ny the President seventy-four were private pension bills and three were for the erection of public buildings. The number of measures vetoed during the session was four more than have been vetoed from the foundation ot the government to tho beginning of the session just closed. One bill. granting a pension to Joseph Romiser, was passed by the two houses over the veto. Among the measures of general importance that have been enacted into laws in addition to the regular appropriation bills are: The presidential succession bill, the bills to provide for the study of tbe naturo and effect of alcoholic drinks and narcotics, to remove the charge of desertion against soldiers who re-enlisted without j* having first received a discharge from the regiments in which they had previously served; to legalize the incorporation of national trades unions: to give tho receiver of a national bank the Ijower to buy in any property of the bank sold under foreclosure when necessary to protect his trust; to extend the immediate delivery system; to increase the pensions of soldiers who have lost a leg or an arm; to permit the owners of United States merchant vessels, and of any property on board thereof, to sue the United States for damage by collision arising from mismanagement of any government vessel; to provide that surveyed lands granted to railroads coterminous with completed portions of such roads and in organized counties shall not be exempt from local taxation on account of the lien of tbe United States upon them for the costs of surveying, selecting or conveying them; the oleomargarine bill; the bill for the increase of the navy; to re-j Floyd of the first division to the dace the fees on domestic money orders for * scene.

New Haven, Conn., August 5.—The mystery concerning the body of the supposed murdered man found in the drifting catboat today <* by Captain John W. Clark of the fishing steamer Eugene Price of Greenport, L. L, off Morris Cove, is now revealed. From evidence now found it is certain that it is a case of suicide. The body is identified by David Clark as that of Willard Pierce of IGO Pine street, Fair Haven, aged 50 years, and a carpenter by trade. Peirce has been out of work for two or three months and has been rather despondent iii consequence. He took to drinking. Clark was probably the last one that saw him alive, with the exception of White, the boat owner. Only yesterday he told Clark that the boy cotters were after him to kill him and that they intended to drown him. Clark tried to argue him out of his delusion. Pierce leaves a wife and no children. Ho formerly lived in New York, and has been in Now Haven about four years. TO VISIT HALIFAX FIREMEN. Chelsea, Rancor and Calalu Companies doing to the Tournament. Halifax. N.

Tho cat-rigged yacht Fearless sailed from South Boston yesterday, on a short pleasure trill. CaptEllx Kidd held tho tiller and navigated tho little craft which ho owned. With him wore Harry S. Wilber, Mrs. Sarah Stewart and Thomas Budge. Down tho harbor, past tile familiar landmarks, they sailed, until tho approach of evening warned thorn they must return. Captain Kidd put his holm about, and back up tho harbor tho little yacht flew before the breeze. At about 7 o’clock, when about half way between Long Island and Moonhead, a sudden flaw strucK tho Fearless amidships, causing her to caroon badly to otto side. Every one on board instinctively jumped to windward, hoping to right the boat, but all in vain, for in another moment the little yacht’s leeward rail was under water. Another flow completed tho work, and the boat slowly settled ami sank, leaving four people struggling desperately for life. Captain Kidd and Wilber were excellent swimmers, and though thoroughly benumbed with tim cold and encumbered with their clothing, they managed to keep Mrs. Stewart’s head alleve water. Thomas Budge was unable to help himself, and, after a few spasmodic struggles, he sank before tho eyes of his companions, who were powerless to assist him. With tile cry of ‘Tm drowning! Great God! can no one help me?” tho unfortunate man went under. Upon perceiving their comrade’s fate tho others struggled Arith zoal born of desperation, for help was at band. A passing boat hailed them and then mado toward tho slowly perishing trio. Kind bunds reached overboard and tenderly lifted tho woman out of danger. Wilber and the skipper were next nulled aboard, aud their preservers brought them back to tho city, Deep sadness "reigned in at least one South Boston home last night. Tho nows of the calamity was broken as gently as nosslble to Budge’s family, who Tive at 74 Emerson street. Budge was a tailor, and employed in tho tailoring establishment at 763 Washington street. He leaves a wife and family, IT WAS PERFECTLY EXQUISITE. Prince l.copnltlo Ranee* at the Eunhluu-able Casino Hep. Newport, R.

Tho prince came in a carriage with Charge d’Affaires Da Costa, while his brother-mid dies came by themselves without carriages, His Highness appeared about 10.30 and immediately went upon the floor, where lie was introduced as Prince Leopoldo. He danced with but two or three ladies, oho of whom was Miss Post, who was chaperoned by Mrs. J. J. Johnson, and it was those two ladies who received most of his attention. Among tho distinguished personages noticed in the ball-room was Miss Brady, who hasbeen the acknowledged belle of New York society during the past two seasons. Site beld her ‘‘court” as usual, there were many other noted beauties present, with whom she was forced to share Tilden as an Intellectual Power.

His physician is positive that he died from apoplexy. New York, August.5.—A strongly divided public opinion follows Mr. Tilden to tho grave, lie was an old New Yorker, having had to do with this city from boyhood, and his rather amateurs appearance in politics when he was not a candidate for any office, but kept charge of tile Stafo committee, brought him into contact with all sorts of people, many of whom grew hostile to him, and I recollect saying to Mr. Williams of the old shipping firm of Williams & Onion about 1874 that I thought Tilden could hold his head up very well With tho fames of Seward, Silas Wright, Marcy and Van Buren. Mr. Williams looked at mo with astonishment almost like dislike. "How can you make such a statement as that?” said he. Yet Tilden did become as great a figure iii his way as Seward or Van Buren, botli of whom were also rather kickers against their own party and its basses. 'lumen a* a .Lawyer. In Tilden’s career as a lawyer lie ran against tho interests and sometimes against the ideas of honesty and candor of a good many prosperous men. He hid a way of burrowing, as it were, to get a piece of evidence, somewhat iii the naturo of a detective’s point. This would leave tho impression on some reputable old merchant or railroad trustee or bank president that Tilden had not the upright stature that ho mixed with tho Kentish puritan something of the Spanish Jesuit Iii short, Tilden’s intellectual rise was in spite of agreat deal of unpleasant personality. Tim devious things ho did, whether from natural temperament or a kind, moral stratismus, wero of no help to him whatever, except, perhaps, to make his private fortune; but his reading, his research, his careful editing of ti public case, so as to turn it into a strongly administrative case, and probably above all his literary inclinations, made him a candidate for president, and toward the last a sort of Nestor of his party. Ho dies enjoying tho rare distinction of being tbe only presidential candidate who was not allowed to take his scat. This will single him out beyond any eminence lie could have achieved in his office. As it has been said of Abraham Lincoln J tiiat it was well he died at tbe climax of lim , war, so Mr. Tilden taking the presidential I offico, according to my perception, would have dimmed rather than brightened his fame. A Rind of Parallel Preuident. Rattan chairs and rockers cheap. Cash, weekly or monthly payments. Boston Furniture Co,, 790 Washington street Ho lias been able from a position of privacy to be a kind of parallel president running down several terms, issuing his proclamations about tile fortifications, etc,, and as iegularly praised and applauded at the national conventions as was the name of Thornes Jefferson after he had retired, hut continued to put the strings on his successors. Cleveland supplied a right arm for that enfeebled arm of Tilden’s, which he could hardly raise to shake one’s hand with. The incentive of Cleveland’s administration continued t o be Tilden, the younger man boing a pupil of the older one, but tho strong hand of Cleveland has been as distinctively his own,as after creating one person the arm of another one had been mortised into that will so as to do clenched work. The Finest Contrast*. Thus the lives of all these men present a continual series of tho finest contrasts. While Tilden was holding the attention of the whole country thero was no such man as Cleveland. When Tilden relaxed into the situation of a martyr the unknown man walked forward and carried off the honors, and half resented the idea that Tilden still pretended to have some claim on tho government. That John Kelly and Tilden should have died so near each other is a subject of almost superstition about Tammany Hall. Tho very day that Tilden dies tho Mayor of Now York city is calling before him Air. Squire of Boston, upon charges which have thrown the town into nearly as much consternation as when tho vouchers were published against Tweed Sc Company. Hence, where we think there is progress we sec nothing but tbe re procession of evonts. The great reformer die3 and the great purloiner is at tho bar. Mr. Tilden as a literary man was the superior of most of .tile presidents, and this gave him an influence over the politicians of the next generation, who had not his art in subtle words. Tike Intellectual Creator of Mm. He was the intellectual creator of Governor Hill, of President Cleveland, of Secretary Manning, and to some extent of Mayor Grace. These four men now constitute tho unorganized regency of New York Slate, as Van Buren made a similar regency in tho days of Tilden’s youth. Tilden met Hill in the State Legislature and got his oar and talked management into it. Mr. Manning, without the whooping-up which Tilden lent him, would have been like John F. Silty the or Draper, one of tbe bosses of the city of Albany. Tilden got his ear, too, arid showed bim that it was possible to make a new Democracy, ing out tho errors of the past and bottomed upon assistance to tho great laxly of tho taxpayers. Manning waaslowly won over and tie became secretary of the treasury, an office Tilden would have rejoiced in for himself. Cleveland came alougfrotn Buffalo to be governor and lie had, while mayor of that town or one of its politicians, been somewhat taken with Tilden’s rise and mentality, particularly where he battered aw'ay against the canal ring; so after hesitating Cleveland concluded to join the Manniug-Tilden, Fairchild-Apgar side. The result is Cleveland getting all the inside of the reform pudding. Fsivos-Hee of 'I'll,leu. Grace is the curious inheritor of all the work Tilden and his associates, O’Conor. Andrew Green, Mayor Havemeyer and others did in 1872. After that there was a i line of mayors, and the first of them, Wick- | ham, was especially the favorite of Tilden. The next was Elv, who had only an intellectual respect for Tilden. Then came Cooper, who. though elected by tho Ho publicans was nearer real regard for Tilden than any of those mayors. Grace followed, but ho has some resemblance to Tilden, too much, perhaps, to be his follower. Grace is a strong-minded, astute Irishman, and merchant, familiar with the down-town banks, resolved to he financially independent, and looking to political promotion with as determined a spirit as Tilden ever had. Therefore the city of New York. before Mr. Tilden's death, had passed into the hands of one of his ow n party who did not bow the knee to hint just as the presidential office had passed to a young Democrat who paid to Tilden merely the respect of a strong, hard head to an old and softening one. Tho chief figment of official reverence for Tilden was afforded at Albany by the young governor whom Tilden had coached. Ho. probably playing a little game of cross purposes, wont annually to decorate the bust at Greystono so that mankind should be sure to see tho fact. The lesson of ambition in such a case is severe enough to have lived lust long enough to have the applause of tho crowd and to be In tho way of tho real loaders of tho generation. Tho young element which has come forward merely pays to Tilden the attention that the statue of some saint receives; they bowed when they passed him, and ho slipped right out of their minds. With truth Mr. Beck remarked that in this ago tho death of a man makes no more impression than the pulling of one's finger out of a bucketful of water, the hole whereof closes up so quickly you never perceive it-1(1* It clef Foil Urn I Career. Mr. Tilden lived but a brief political career, which commenced with his prosecution of Tweed, and ended with tho spring of 1.877, In time hardly four years long. Before that period the highest office ho ever reached was a member of tho Legislature, wliero ho cut no figure ami was not popular. Since his curious hesitation about securing tho presidential otfno he lias merely boon thecheatod and retired person, receiving considerable partisan sympathy of the belligerent sort. but only brought forward occasionally by some controversialist in order to diminish tho claims of those who had taken His honors. Pc rum lieut. Invalidism, Tho New’ York Sun looked all over the field w ithin two or three monthsof Tilden’s death, to find somebody to pit against tile President, and could find nobody thero but Tilden, whose death is a curious commentary upon that choice. Ho was already some 72 years old, and has not been in good condition sinco he passed a year in the governorship. The labor hts ambition brought upon him. of exposing first the city ring, then impeaching tile State ring, next making tho presidential campaign, and finally having the whole responsibility put on him of settling it, brought Mr. Tilden to a condition of permanent invalidism; but ho probably had a keen enjoyment or his mysterious and exceptional reputation to be like Jefferson, another sage of Montello, to speak to national conventions by letter like Charles V., after ho had abdicated front tho depth of bis Greystono convent to consider himself as ne walked about his grounds and*amongst bis books. These wore compensations enough for a man vvlto once told me that he never laid any youth, having set at work to ho groat from tho time ho was a child. "I never had any childhood,” lie said in a lone talk I had with turn in the cottage of tho United States Hotel at Saratoga. Upon this, gentlemen, opinions will lie as various as tho standpoints    of individuals, Of course , only a few relatively could ever have known him at all. Some others Stave had tilings told them which ha o given them a btas one way or tho other- Mr. Tilden could at times make a most agreeable impression upon a caller when ho was feeling sociable and,was without any suspicions. I happened to see him at one of those times. It was in the interval before ho was presidential candidate,taking his first summer at the springs. Probably ii’ I had seen him just after his nomination I would have found a very different person, for almost invariably after a man has secured a nomination lits own timidity or his friends shut bis mouth fast. The time to see the candidate at lits best is while he is seeking the nomination, and refuses no opportunity to bo assisted towards it. At the suggeston that I wanted to see him and talk to him especially about matters tit the past, he appointed a time, and there I conversed with him alone two or throe hours, and he asked me what I meant to do after dinner and told me to come back again. Bo I returned and had an hour or two more of til is conversation, which is very powerfully stamped on my mind because of tho subsequent influence Tilden had on affairs and the stormy chapters through which he went. A Purtikiin Democrat. In the first place he was a partisan Democrat, not much capable of appreciating a Whig or Republican statesman who had been tbe opponent of his friend,Van Buren. Ho qualified this partnership somo time after tho war, when he saw that the majority vote must partially come out of the Republican ranks. The reputation ho had gained as Tweed’s prosecutor from tho Republican press and leaders materially modified his mind and made him see that it was possible to beat the old favorites of his party by straddling the issues. His first movement of a public nature at Albany, which preceded tho occasion of the visit I am describing, was to invite William Cullen Bryant to a public reception. Bryant had commenced life a Federalist, drifted along to become a regular partisan Jeffersonian editor, supported Franklin Fierce as late as 1852, and after that supported tho Republican then against Tilden himself. Mr. Bryant, with obdurate caution, would not allow this special honor which Tilden did him to divert tho columns of his paper to Tilden’s support when he ran for president. It was rather strange study to see these two literary men playing for each other in the executive mansion at Albany. Tilden desired to capture that mercantile newspaper, which had so much influence with the moneyed class down town. Bryant had got tile itch for money, and did not mean to have his paper embarrassed. Bryant had said near the commencement of hts life, when lie wrote tho embargo, that ho would never put himself en record again concerning an individual,lor fie had to take it all hack anti have it stuck at him by other editors for years. Hi* A«i mi Tint iou for Van XBiirru. Mr. Tilden had an intense admiration for no other public man whom ho know but Martin Van Buren, lie told me that Silas Wright and Marcy were able men, but did not possess the many-sidedness, the political system aud the personal grace of Yan Buren. Van Buren had done bim. a rather obscure farmer’s son, the honor to make him an inmate of his house and finally bis trustee. When Van Buren did this lust act lie was a very old man, mentally weak anil with no more interest in this world. He was thirty-two years older than Tilden, but came out of tho same county, and it was, of course, a tremendous thing for a boy of avast ambition beginning to live in the immediate neighborhood of a man who had been attorney-general, senator, governor, vice-president, secretary of stato and minister to England, and three times up for president. Next to Van Buren Tilden thought the highest of Azariah Flagg, a man we know but little about. The old gentleman seemed lather surprised that I did not know more about Flagg, anil advised mo to hunt up his story, saying that lie was one of the great spirits of New York State. About Seward, Mr. Tilden said unceremoniously that fie had always played one game victoriously, and that was to find a distant subject of sympathy and agitate in that direction, so as to divert attention from the realities which might be agitated in his own Stato. Seward had commenced by agitating on Freemasonry, ami wonton next to slavery, etc. He expressed his admiration of Charles O’Conor by saying “I think ho is a superb lawyer.” Church, Seymour unit Iteniun, About his own contemporaries, in New York, Seymour, Church, Kernun, Mr. Til-den did not say one word,and if their names •were mentioned ho made no reply. All three Of those men unquestionably disliked him sincerely. The late William C. Kingsley of Brooklyn, who Chiefly created tho Brooklyn bridge, had a long talk with me I on the subject of renominating Tilden iii .,I I 1680, and lie said: “It is strange that three ' 11 men. so intelligent asCimrch, Seymour anil Eonian. should give Tilden so little credit I for goc intentions. I can understand Church, si;id Kingsley, “because Im bas been crossed in His prospects by Tilden and his friends in the canal’s cut off. Mr. Seymour also holds that Mr. Tilden is not fair iii his methods of warfare. As for Kernan. I think his sympathy with .Seymour must lie, because of his uroiudices.” THE MOCHETTE BDG. A Living Entomological Curiosity, Mended to Serve as an Article of Personal Adornment Life and Habits of a Prisoner in Golden Chains. Ii man is an inventive creature, woman is initiative, and generally she is sufficiently Dilative to take advantage of all the inventions of her brothers. Men fond of fishing vury the attraction of flies made of feathers, and minnows and angle worms made of rubber, by occasionally offering to tile wary fish a genuine repast of live grasshoppers or other insects or small fry fish, and woman who are fond of fishing foe admiration havo followed suit by adding live beetles to an already largo assortment of artificial aud defunct insects and stuffed birds used for personal adornment. Two weeks have not. yet elapsed, however, sinco tim pioneer moehette mig made ii is advent in Boston, bent on a mission to adorn tho bonnet of some fair Rostonienne, while wandering at will over his luxurious domain and viewing the sights of the modern Athens.   1   ..... A LIVE MOCHETTE RUG, :    von lack: on bonnet wear. : This placard in the window of Shrove. Crump & Low satisfies tho curiosity of malty passers-by regarding a large and healtliv-looking beetle displayed thero, and saves tim time of the beetle and the salesman iii answering questions. The insect is harnessed in trappings more gorgeous than over the homos wore which drew Ute chariot of Casar at one of his triumphal entries into tho Eternal City. Gold and silk arc the only materials used in the construction of tin harness, and the finest of black velvet is none too lino tx) servo for Ilia parade ground. When the little creature was first placed in tim window his name and objects iii life wore left unexplained by atty placard, and passers-by formed various opinions. Somo said that ho was wound up in tile mot tling and would run nil day. while others could see in tim little gold chain ample means of furnishing electrical power to drtvo tho mechanical anatomy of the supposed automaton. To save tho trouble of answering questions, the above card was placed in front of tile bug's velvet-covered stamping ground: THIC MOCHETTE HUO. The hug is evidently a member of die beetle family. Ho is a little more titan an inch and a Half in length, and is of a sort of yellowish-gray color, spotted with black, with black logs. Tho range of his peregrinations is circumscribed by a slender gold chain four or five inches in length. The chain is made fast to tim body of tim creature by moans of two gold bands across its back, connected by another similar land, the ends of the ribbons of gold being connected together by soft silken cords passing around the under part of tile bod y. Tints attired tho stranger sponds his days looking at tim jewels, ricli vases end lirlc-a brae iii tho window and looking out at tho crowd of people, who in turn spend tho day on the siaevvalk looking in at him. Occasionally ho takes a leisurely stioll around tim velvet platform of his prison. Tho chain barely reaches to the edge of tho raised surface, which the bug calls his homo, and just as he reaches the edgo lie generally stumbles in an absent-minded way partly down the slope, being brought up with a short turn as the chain becomes taut, lie then starts for another aimless journey, after a glance at tile crowd to see if they noticed that little misstep of his. A salesman in tho store was asked regarding Ute moehette bug. "I’m engaged in Bio jewelry department.” said bo. “Mr. Blank lias charge of the live stock department, so you’d better see him.” Mr. Blank of the live stock department stated that the moehette bug was a native of Brazil. “Wo havo sold two of them already, and we havo had them j ti tho store only ten days. The first w as sold almost ss soon as ho was received from New York, and both wore sold to some of our best customers. They avo actually worn by ladies and soem to interest ladies very much. T im cost? Eight dollars apiece, including tile chain.” “How long bas e limy been on the market?” “In Boston only tho ten days that we have baa them, but in New York they have been sold for a mouth or two past. Mr. Bergh, of tim Soi iety for tho Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, was interested in them and went in to see if tim bugs were being imposed ui)oi). Ho examined flu* gold and silk i’a> toning*, ami then decided to allow tho trade in tim hugs to go on on the ground that they were not subjected lo cruelty of any sol t.” What do you feed the creatures?” was ask etl. “A box with a perforated cover comes with each bug,” said im, "and when im is not out on tho street with his mistress for an airing ho is supposed to lie kopt iii tho box. Tho box is two-thirds filled With a sort of decayed wood, such is the bugs live upon iii their native laud, and that prevents their getting homesick or hungry. One of thorn died iii New York, and they dissected him to see w hat tim trouble was. They found that ho had hardly anything in Him. but bad practically starved to death : but in his case they seem to have proceeded on the supposition that air was a sufficiently hearty diet for a moehette bug. With proper treatment, however, they will easily live from six months to a year.” "Are they likely to" become popular as articles of ornament, no you think?” “Git, yes, for thev are wally ornamental and as neat iii tHeir habits as can be. There is no reason why they should not lie as popular as imitation insects, only tho fact that they are alive might other points of the carriage for shot lines, cables, breeches fumy and all other implements.

The tumult of Wednesday night was followed by an unusually quiet day yesterday at tho pork packing establishment of .John I*. Squire Sc Ca Even tim streets were to a largo extent deserted. Nothing of any consequence took place last evening as the men filed out at the close of their day’s work. A crowd of peoplo flocked about the several approaches to the factory, but offered not a word in remonstrance sis tim men silently passed through. Mr. Squire refused to hold converse with reporters, saying briefly that he had nothing to say. In tho afternoon a small number of hoes were killed, while a lively business in the transportation lino was done by Mr. Squire’s own and hired teams. No obstacles of any kind wero thrown in the way, so that it would be impossible to tell that everything was not in shipshape order. » It is expected that most of those who stayed home yesterday owing to the trying scenes of the evening before, will be at work today. The vigilance of the police will not,however,be abated, at least, not for tim present. Today will witness tho closing of all tho saloons cast of Inman square, including all East Cambridge. This will nave much to do with preserving good order. T he Homer-Ville City Government took active steps towards rendering assistance in c ase of another outbreak. The men feel that tho wild scenes of Wednesday night will not again be repeated. Both arc just as determined as ever. Few regret tim disgraceful “cones of wednesday night more than the lockouts themselves. They seem to feel as though it had placed them a step backward rather than forward.
