The pretexts and devices used to sell Teas are unparalleled in the sale of any other article of food. In appearance there is practically very little difference between a Tea worth 50 cents and another worth 75 cents per lh. Hence (with the universal desire of the American, people to get the best) arises the opportunity for deception, and consequent enormous profit, If every housekeeper, who is paying 75 cents to $1.00 per lh., will buy a single pound of our 50-cent Tea (either Formosa, English Breakfast or Japan), the truth of our statement will he abundantly demonstrated.

April 14.—Ton months ago the people of tho Catholic diocese of Providence were lamenting the death of the prelate, who-e veal, industry and loving devotion had reared the magnificent temple of worship—the cathedral. Today they ass sted at that august ceremony of tho consecration of a new bishop, who will take up the work which the Rt. Rev. Dr. Hendricken laid down when death called him away. Ten months ago tho cathedral was bedecked with the sable emblems of mourning. Toilay its magnificent exterior glowed with a wealth of color and light, while the bright spring sun beamed a benediction on the ceremonial. It was indeed an inspiring spectacle—a spectacle which for impressiveness has never been equalled in the city, if indeed in New England, High dignitaries of the church, prelates and priests from all over tile Eastern and Middle States were present and tilled the sanctuary, making the largest assemblage of clergymen that has ever occurred within this State. The congregation was a vast one. and its si/.o was limited only by the capacity of tho church. It was thoroughly representative, for in it were members of every parish in the diocese, while a very large delegation from Boston, the scene of Bishop Harkins’ labors until Saturday last, were present to witness the imposing ceremony by which he was elevated to the episcopal office. Tim city and State governments, aud tho clergy or other sects were also represented in the pews, while the F,eu<lini; sad Ttusines* Men of the city watched with interest the unusual and impressive spectacle. The time announced for the opening of the doors of the cathedral was 8.30, but fully an hour before that time the people began to gather, and they stood on the street waiting patiently until the doors swung back, and they were conducted to the pews. Inside, tho committee of the Brownson Lyceum discharged their duties as ushers with singular ability and with remarkable promptness. The clergymen began to arrive yesterday morning, and all day long and far into the evening they poured into the city on every incoming train. This morning early the Episcopal residence, at the corner of Pond and Fenner streets, was crowded, and the number of clergymen was incre ased by new arrivals up to within a few minutes of the beginning of the ceremony.

The Atlanta had just returned from a six-hours’ spin up the sound to test lier sea going capacity. Tile trip had been made from off Willett's point, up the Middle Ground channel, past Execution rock, under a fine breeze and return. For six consecutive hours of the trial trip tile vessel cleared the white caps with tile engines under full pressure, sometimes reaching sixteen and tbree-fourtns an i at others only fourteen knots the average being over fifteen and one-lialf knots. The engines worked splendidly, but they did not develop that power which was expected. This may, however, not prove a defect when Hie joints of the machinery get toned down by constant running, It is anticipated that the Atlanta can do seventeen knots an hour at a pinch when tile cylinders aud bearings of the engine become easy by working. f __ ____ ____ Sanitary Precautions.

Mr, Edward Barge*® returned from Wilmington this morning and hart a chance for tho first time to look ovor the ( onditions of tile Arrow-May/iower races, as stated by Mr. Chamberlayne in his recent letter. Mr. Burgess said that he and General Paino had consulted about Ute acceptance of the conditions, but owing to many matters pertaining to the now yacht being also under consideration, they hud not yet made their final decision. “I think it safe to say, however,” he said, “that we shall consider tho conditions in their present form as impossible of acceptance.” This means that Hie Mayflower will not go to England unless Mr. Chamberlayne modifies his ( onditions so as to allow of Hie unrestricted uso of Hie cen ti aboard. Both Mr. Burgess aud General Bailie had previously expressed themselves so strongly on tills point that when Hie true conditions were made known there was but little doubt in the minds of yachtmen that their declination of the con litmus was certain. It now remains to ne seen whether the two gentlemen will ask tor nioditi ation of tho terms for a <ae or decline tho race altogether. This decision, Mr. Burgess, expects will bo reached be I ore long, and a suitable answer forwarded to Mr. Chamberlayne. WHICH WAS DRUNK?
