Delays in tho United States Mails. Crrr of Mexico, Mex., via El I'aso, Tex., April 24. Kuccutly the mails from ilitf Uuitcil States liave been renf.-liin this city with the ;rcatt-t iriegtilarity. An cxplanHtinii of the annoying statu of af fair has len ask il of 1'ostinai.ter Nava, of this city. This morning that gentle man aaiJ the Mexican Post Oflice Depart-, inent had lit-cn uitij the International Railway as far as has beon - practicable ever since the 1st of March, but upon in quiry of the postmaster at Eagle Patia it ws found the United States Post Office Department hail taken no measures for making use of the shorter route furnished by the International road, and that the Eajle Pass Pout Office force was not suf ficient to handle the American mail and the European mail sent from Mexico by rail. Hence the 3Iexican postal authori ties were only able to nse the short route to a limited extent, and though the force in Piedras Negras office had been some what increased it was found necessary to retain a considerable force at the Paso del Norte Post Office, since all the mail from the United Btalcs and a part of that to that country still continued to pass through that office; but when Mr. Bell, Superintendent of the Foreign Mail service, announced, on the 30th of last month, that orders had ben issued for all th mails bound to Mexico from the jfroatcr part of the United States, and that passing through the country frwm E'iropo, to be sent via Eagle Pass and the International Railway, tho force at the Paio del Norf.o office was very much diminished in order that the service at Piedras Xegras .might be made thorough ly efficient. In other words the principal part of the force at Paso del Norte was transferred to Piedras Negras. Supt. Bell's ordii have sot been obeyed, and nine-tenths of the mails which should come through Eagle Pass and Piedrns Negras continue to cross the Rio Grande at El Paso. Mr. Nava says some little mail comes by the fhort route through Eagle Pass and Pie-iras Negras oiHce3, but that fully as much is sent into Mexico at Laredo, which is not yet connected with this city and the principal points of the republic by rail. In consequence of the Mexican postal autoritirs acting on the supposition that Supt. Bell's orders would be c arried out, tmd weakening the force at Piedras Negras, it js pow found that the clerks in the last named office have nothing to do. while those at Paso del Norte tun ne t handle the heavy mails which con tinue topass through that ofTc;.', appa rently in violation of the orders of the pastal authorities of thu United States. The Americans of Mexico are not only annoyed at the delay of their mail, but they are m tifisd the whole troublo i with the postal authorities of the United States, wl'o will not avail themselves of the new route by wlrch from one to two days' time i3 gained, and this the Super intended of Foreign Mails of the United States hadjinnouuced with a flourish of trumpets that orders had been issued for the immediate use of the new route. The most patriotic and euthusiastic Americans ere compelled to admit on this occasion that tho postal jjuflioritjs of Mexico have shown theoiseire3 iaoe enterprising and business like than thosa of the Unit ed States.

Windham it Davies. The Village of Cub a. Cuban villages or pneblos have always I interested me deeply. They are of littio i importance as we measure thinps. There le nothing about them in architecture or human activities te make them worthy of account. " They are seldom populous and are never busy. In them and between them, enterprise, rivalry, aspiration, are unknown. But on this great earth are not other spots so full of simplicity and effortless rest. There are just enough people in them to make human presence an agreeable consciousness. There is never any labor done in any way that tires. Nobody buirius. There is no fritting or fuming about anything. 1 Ko one is supposed to be in haste. Nor could any such notion ever come to surprise and annoy tho mind. Every animate or inanimate ob ject 5ems at rest. If yon desire to set u Cuban village in an uproar of indignant wonderment, yoa have only to hint of do ing, oy of desiring something done quick ly. Even the winds that bluty mpvo in soft and soothing breezes, eloquent of llsti less dreamfulness. The birds sing in subdued notes as if half asleep. Univer sal siesta rests upon everything. The very air wings narcotic, and pulses balm, to the sense and bouL Despite your own contempt lor Cuban inanimation, after a little, your best efforts are overcome; yau yield to the Insensible sirens of scene and scent and sound; and the enthrall rnent possesses you wholly.yEdgar L.

Ronton' Six IHntlnct Classes of Theatre Patrons Some Observations of an l.'x perlenced Manager Saturday Night tho Itettt of the Week. Probably few theatro goers of this city realize, as do the theatrical man.-iErers, that there are in Boston six distinct audiences of amusement seekers, and that they have upecial nights upon which they attend the theatres. So marked are the audiences on different nights of the week that one manager in this city has a name for each night, which he lias given to it mainly on account of the character of tlio audience which he expects on that day to see in his house. For instance, Mon day is lithograph night; Tuesday, de ciding night, or assistant critics' night; Wednesday, train night; Thursuny, "night out" night; Fric'iy, prr night; Saturday, everybody's night. Asked to give his reasons for thus naming the nights, he said: "On Monday, unless there has been a large advance sale or the indications are that there will be a good sized audience drawn by the special merit of the performances, we prive out what are known as lithograph tickets. These entitle the holder to admission to the the atre in return for the privilege he has given us of hanging in his shop window or in his store our lithographs and small bills, or, perhaps, aro for the use of a bill board in a good location. ON MONDAY EVENINO. "It is on Monday evening, usually, that the theatres change their bills, and so the opposition on that night i3 generally felt more than on any other, and if there Is room it is desirable to pay off tho lith ograph or advertising debts on that night in preference to any other. There are more of these tickets issued than managers would care to acknowledge, and they are generally well represented on Monday night, and so I call that night 'lithograph night.' Of course, on Monday we get the regular critics and the first nighters, who are always on hand to pass judgment on every new actor or play, but the dead head is plentiful on that night, and I recognize him in my nomenclature. "On Tuesday night we can generally tell from tho receipts how the business is going to be for the week. If the house is larger in money than it was on Monday, wo assume that the performance has pleased the public, aud has been well spoken of, and that the receipts will in crease nightly for the rest of the week. Therefore I call it 'deciding night.' ns it generally decides the business. On that night, too, we get those who never attend the theatre until they have iead their favorite daily paper, and learneel the opin ion of tho newspaper critic concerning the play and players. These are the assist? cut critics, and they are influential as a class. Wednesday nirht is 'train night,' because on that night the late trains especially designed for theatre parties were run and brought into the city theatres crowds of persons living in the surround ing towns. This namo is not so pei ti uent as it used to be, as now on nearly all the roads out of the city there am trains run late enough to permit of out of town people visiting the the:itre, and reaching homo at a fairly reasonable hour. THE "NIGriT 0CTM KIGliT. MWhy do I call Thursday night out night? Well, I do not want to dispar.igo Thursday night, for we get a strangely mixed audience on that night, but we are alwaj-3 certain to have a large contingent of servants on that evening, as that, by some unwritten law, seems to be the even ing when the 'help' have their niht out. The upper tiers av. always well filled oii Thursday evening by stout, healthy look ing young girls, accompanied by their sweethearts, and I tell you they make a ependid audience for the ordinary attrac tion, as the illusions of the stage are to them realities. An actress who cannot make them cry or a comedian who cannot make them laugh should speedily retire from the business. On Friday we expect to see the more fashionable personages, on tbiit daj, (of superstitious reasons oi for other reasons, there are are fewer wed ding receptions, balls and social events than on any other night of the week. Oa Friday night we also expect to see a great many of our Hebrew patrons, more than on any other night of the week, although they are great theatre goers, and are found in goodly numbers on every night. 'Saturday night is the best night of the week for many reasons, and the audience is more mixed on that evening than on any other of the week. The gallery is full of working people who have been paid their week's wage3 and are seeking en joyment; the clerks and shopkeepers -are there with their sweethearts and wives, knowing that they can rest on Sunday, arid the front rowg are fall of Harvard students, more especially if there are heathen gcxldesses on the stage. The nearer the representatives of the heathen goddesses approach the originals in form and raiment, the nearer the students get to the stage. You mustn't ask me why this is. I only state facts. An experi enced theatrical man, acquainted with the city, could tell you what night of the week it was by just looking at the audi ence, if he had no other means of know; ing.i' Boston Herald,. The Best Window Dressers. The other day one of these masters of his art was asked: "Who make the best window dressers women or men?" "Men, by long odds. ' Women are a failure at it, in fact. Strange, too, isn't it, with the average American women's exquisite taste in combining colors shq cannot fit up a window with the resources of a store at her command? I'll tell you why. She cannot execute a general de sign, and, not to appear ungalhint, neither can she appreciate it. Stand with a crowd of women in front of a window which 13 worked into one grand design, and you will find nine out of ten of them have discovered each some particular piece of statf that she iifces, and doesn't see anything else In the window."
