Perhaps the very last actress that any one would suppose ever experienced the tender passion, much less suffered from the pangs of unrequited love, was Charlotte Cushman, and yet twice in her life she was ready to sacrifice everything for the man of her heart. Miss Cushman received a oommon bool education in Boston; her deskmate was the daughter of an actor, which led to frequent conversations upon theatrical matters, and to an interest in tltein ta such as extent that Miss Cushman determined us a child that should fate ever compd her to he her own bread winner, it would be in smnc walk of public life. She had barely reached the age of sixteen befoie she was deeply enamored of a young gentleman who had his way to make in the world, and a speedy marriage being thereby prey. Hied, She had little thought or hope hut to do awav with the obstacles which separated them. Circuniitaiices soon compelled lier to east about tor some means of self-support, her mother being a widow with several children to provide for. Miss mailman linda pretty, sympathetic singing voice of no great power, but much sweetness. Mts.

A request was received from the License Commissioners that fifteen policemen be assigned to aid them in the enforcement of the law. I lie muster was referred to the Committee on Police, with an order amending the existing order on Ute subject and limiting the total force of p dice to 715 men. An order was passed establishing a branch I ub-llc Library in the West Roxbury District at a cost of *10,000.    ,    a... No action was taken on the matter of the public parks, ami the report was further assigned to Monday next at 5 P. M.    ,, Among the papers from the Common Council concurred in was the passage of an order fixing the salary of the Inspector of Provisions, appointed toy the Board of Health, at SI500. T lie order for rn estimate of the cost of the Back Bay sewer was laid on the table.    * Alderman Clark offered an order, which was passed instructing the Committee on ordinances t.. consider Hie expediency of reporting ail ordinance amending the ordinance relating to the public health so that members ot the Board OI Health -Inn I be required to devote their whole time to the interests of the city, and not engage in other business. BACK BAY SEWERAGE. The Committee on Sewers reported on the subject of drainage of sewage matter from the Back Bay territory, that it is inexpedient to take action relative to the proposed sewer from Parker street to Charles River. This sewer, if built, will cost *75,000, anil lf the plan of an intercepting sewer proposed by the .Sewerage Commissioners shall be carried into effect, will prove useless, as tile plan there contemplated is not to convey sewage n atter into < barbs River, but to Moon Island. The committee defer to the views entertained by the Board of Health on the matter and approve of the temporary measures proposed to be adopted by that Board. The report on the motion OI Ald gagement in Boston Mils Cushman managed to be introduced to her, and finally under Mrs. Wood s auspices she made lier appearance in the concert; room, being simply announced as “a young lady. Her success was sufficiently pronounced to determine her to continue in that mode of life, or al least until her betrothed should have become able to marry her, but be took great umbrage at what he stigmatized as “au unwomanly proceeding, and declared she had disgraced him. Hot words followed on her side, and after much altercation and mutual pain the engagement was broken oil, and Charlotte Cushman was free to follow-out lier destinv as a gn at. artiste. She went her way and lie went his. After much hard struggling, it led him into the establishment of a store—a sort of trimming store, combined with ready-made underclothing for ladies aud children—in which ho pros pc rad. He is now one of the foremost merchants of the kina iii Boston. A few years ago I was in Boston, and dropped Into his store to make some purchases. It happened that Miss Cushman preceded me by a few steps. As sum as the fio >r-walker caught sight of her he hurried off and returned with the proprietor; a hale, ruddy-faced, white-haired gentleman, of quiet and dignified hearing. They look, rather than shook hands, lie holding liers for a moment, and then side by side they walked to the bark of the store. To see those t wo calm, self-contained, old silver-haired people, one would have Utile suspected the heartrending romance which bung over their youth. It is all very tine to despise money, hut the lack of it frequently changes the destinies of entire lives. Had Miss ( ui-1.man’s lover been only sufficiently well-off to I ave married her ut the blooming of their love, iii all probability the stage would never have kn rnn lier brilliant genius. Altei Miss Cushman had achieved fame in England she made a tour of this country. She was then a woman o middle age, with a remarkably ugly face, but tall and well-moulded frame. She Hayed an engagement at the National Theatre, Cincinnati, Conrad IL Clarke was the leading man. many years her junior. He had been brought un as a gentleman, being the son of a Quaker in Philadelphia. Miss Cushman was struck with his polish and wit. his talent and cultured tone. Hr. un i ©aversation# on acting in tile theatre, Clarke soon began to t all at her hotel to reoeive particular instructions in the parts he was to play with her; then lie escorted her home from the theatre at nights, and it was plainly to beseen that shelooked with marked favor on the young actor. <hie evening she was at the wing, ready to go one# Meg Merriles, I playing the boy, in Guy Mannering.” I was standing by lier side. and Mr. Clarke was a few steps off, flirting desperately with a lovely young actress who had been christened "'Hie Boodle Dog,” from the way she dressed her hair, which was just as they wear It nowadays, but then thought a wild. crazy style.

Senator Gilbert of Hampshire showed from the testimony the falsity of many of the reports that have been scattered broadcast over the State in regard to the cruel punishments indicted upon the boys at the institution. Ile most heartily suppirted the report of the majority, and argued that the institution is well managed, and that the proposed changes in the classification of the boys will remedy all the alleged abusee. He defended the humane character of Superintendent Shepherd and tli^t of tho Trustees of the institution. The charge# over which so much indignation has been excited have been proven grossly exaggerated, if not altogether Senator Allen of Plymouth again spoke in favor of legislation to secure more humane treatment of the inmates of the institution. He claimed that the testimony cf the officers themselves was enough ti condemn them. He said that had tho severe punishment In any case resulted in death, the officers would have been liable to a charge of mur- ^ Senator Moors of Franklin again spoke in favor of removing the Trustees and Superintendent in oilier that a proper and humane system ot discipline may bi* secured. He called attention especially to the fact that no record of punishments bv tile under teachers was kept, and that there vv’as no record of the punishment by the sweatbox The Trustees are to blame in that they have not mudc a more careful inquiry Into the methods of discipline. The trouble with Snpewiiten-dt ut Shepherd was that he was a military disciplinarian, driving instead of leading. senator Swell of Essex, one of the I rustles ot the institution, rose to say that certainly hei was one of the most guilty of any of the Trustees, inasmuch as owing to his long experience with criminals he was at the head of the Trustees in this re-k I ie ct He asked no mercy for himself, but he did ask simple justice for himself and associate Trustees. The question of corporal punishment has bein frequently discussed by the Trustees, and they will doubtless abolish it altogether us soon as I tensible. He said that the report of the mum qty of tim committee was a conspiracy, since the investigation was prosecuted by a member of the House who had determined to make a case against the Trustees from I he first. He said a conspiracy was a combination of bad men for a had purpose; an investigation was to show the truth. I he investi-unth ii was so prosecuted as to deceive purity public. Senator Swett, showed character of the boys sent bv himself came from a calm and careful consideration of ail the facts elicited during the long investigation. The conclusions arrived at as to corporalpunishment were but a logical necessity from t be facts made known to the committee,and theTrus-tees having been proved to have been ignorant of the circumstances brought out by the investigation, have not won a right to further confidence, the report was then amended in accordance with the motion of Mr. Washburn, both bills being substituted for the report of the majority. AN EASTERN RAILROAD BILL. The rule forbidding the introduction of new business was suspended upon motion of Mr. Osgood of Salem, and a Dill presented allowing tile Eastern Railroad Corporation to make a transfer of certain collateral security Held by it. The bill provides that tile Eastern Railroad Company, with the assent of the Trustees under the mort.ga,go made in pursuance of chapter 236 of the acts ot 1870, may pledge as collateral security for money any of the property which by section 13 of said aet it Is authorized to sell with tin* assent "(said Trustees; and may give the pledges of the sam right in the property so pledged as ii the same were not mortgaged to the Trustees; provided always that the proceeds of a 'nan so effected shall not tie applied or disposed of except for the PurP°*® Hied in said section ISI, and except with tao < linen t of the Trustees first had and obtained. act is to take effect upon it* passage.

Civilization Responsible for Reversing Nature’s Laws—The Present Evil from Dogs Let Them be Restrained.

No one will deny that hydrophobia is on the increase, and there can be no wonder on the part of those who look at the question in a scientific light.

Hie Members Sustain tho Minority of the Public Charitable C'ommlttee-A Change i ii I he Management at West boro Demanded -A BHI Relating to the Eastern Railroad Introduced. The first and only matter discussed by Hie House wtw the report of the Committee on Publio ( hori-tnble Institutions upon the discipline at Hie Westboro Reform School. 'Hie report, accepted in the senate, gives inexpedient to legislate as Hie verdict ujion the recent investigation. Mr. Washburn of Worcester wa* the first Speake! , and moved to amend th© report by substituting hills, reported by himself as a minority of Hie committee, prohibiting corporal punishment .-it Hic school, except w itll Hic approval of the Trustees and under the direction of the Superintendent or hi* assistant: mid providing tor Hic appointment of a new Board 4 t v* Ti osier* for the institution for five-year terns, one retiring each year. Mr. Alien of Easton followed, and made an attack upon the management of the institution, quoting at length from the report of Hie investigation in support of hisstate-lUMne. Mr. Tompkins of Boston followed, and found a cause for all the trouble at the m-stituUou in the fact that the .State had m ut to Hie institution a set of hoys which he styled “lieu hounds,” meaning the boys from Hie school-ship. He opposed the bills proposed bv Mr. Washburn as uncalled tor mid un-necessary, as the Governor had the power to appoint such persons us Trustees as seemed to him best, as th*1' term* of the present Hoard expire. Mr. Wescott of Boston, of th^commlttee, spoke at length of the results of the investigation, aud sup-1 cited the views expressed by the billa offered a# a substitute for the committee’s report. Mr. I lain ii Boston appealed to Mio common sense ana charity of the lions©, and usked the Benben not to be influenced in their action by the highly-drawn aud over-stated picture of the management at the Westboro school, which had been present co to them bv the curlier speakers. Mr. Newton ol Southboro defended Hie management of the Ketone School mid supported the report ©! Him nia-jeritv. Mr. Thayer of Beaten thought that the Trustees of Hie institution had made themselves responsible tor the conduct of the school, and should be made to feel that the public would not pass over their action without comment. He favored the bills reported by the majority. Mr Sanderson of Mttleton said that he h^ aigned the majority report in good faith and if he did net know that the gentleman from Boston (Mr. Allen) sometimes exaggerated he should feel his eritioism# rather more. He defended the report of the majority. Mr. Washburn of Worcester closed the bate awd said that his support of the bills presented Dr. A. J.
