850 pages, and illustrated with nearly
200 fine engravings of noted places, life
and scenes in New York.
To Mr. McCabe is due the credit of
laving produced the most complete and
graphic account of the great city, and
its busy and varied life that it has been
our fortune to meet with. His book is

We are introduced into- the home of the

with bummers, thieves, detectives, and

THE OX BUSINESS.
The attempts to substitute oxen for
horses frequently result in ludicrous mis
haps. The principal difficulty seems to
be, how to hitch up the critters. It
should be borne in mind that competent
ox drivers are not to be picked up on
every street corner iu Chicago, uvd
therefore there is much uncertainty as to
the proper manner of addressing au ox
in order to affect his movements, as welt
as with reference to the correct mode of
hooking him to the wagon. He ought
to pull in harness, like a horse, but he
wou't. He insists upon a huge hickory
contrivance known as a yoke, and desires
to be attached to the wagon in the sim-
piest manner cousin- uu iuc i

progression. A party oi ciers on c mo
avenue yesterday afternoon experienced
considerable difficulty iu making the
thing work. They first attached tuo
ropes from the yoke to the whifHetrees,
only to encounter the most uncompro
ruisinz objections from the oxen, whose
feelings found vent ia kicks slow but dis
agreeable. In the midst of their quan
dary came a timely suggestion from a
lobker-on who was evidently well up in
the ox-gear. From him they learned
that nothing but a chain of suitable
lecath was necessary, aud, when this
bad been procure !, they went on their
way rejoicing, at the rate of two miles
The streets were saved from utter de
struction yesterday by a few vehicles
drawn by hardy men, some apparent
ly well-dressed persons, who displayed
on their backs and behind them the ad
vertisement of some weil-known clothing
establishment. But there were more
oxen on the streets yesterday than hu
man beasts of burden or horses. A
large number of ox teams could be seen
in different parts of the city. Every
large business house in Chicago has four
or nve yoke ot oxen at wort now ctoing
the heavy teaming. Messrs. Field &
Leiter had several yoke ot these uselul
and powerful beasts in their employ be

Stofe Moores of the Ibminine sex, in
short ? Tea, verily.
oman are the most absurd creatures,
all owing to the silly fancy that it is lady
like to be a loafer. Alittle time ago one
of my small busy house-keeper friends
asked a lady loafer caller what bad
become of her sister.
"She goes downtown everyday now,
says the lady loafer, hesitatingly.
Is she at work! quoth the house
Well, ye yes, says the lady loafer,
still more hesiatidsily.
"Whatdoesshe do?" asked my fiicnd.
The lady loafer stammered and backed
off painfully two or three times, and
finally made a clean breast of it, thusly :
She she ehe has charge ot the
trimminiis in a dress-making establish
ment. She has nothing to do with the
dress making. She has charge of the
trimmings. It's not a common dress
making establishment. It's one of the
fashionable dress-makers. She won't
make a dress for a poor person."
"Oh, glory ! Fan me with a cabbage
leaf!" quoth my friend, the email, busy
The idea of a body's dress-maker set
ting herself up to be "highstocracy."
The laurels of the lady loafers in the cir
cus chariots are quite faded and wither
ed after that. And yet, why not a
dressmaker? Isn't money made at
dress-making quite as aristocratic as
money made with pork, whisky, hides,
soap, tallow and tobacco? Those are
the material foundations upon which our
American nobility found their airy cas
tles of aristocracy, you know, and I'm
sure dress-making is quite as high and
honorable as any of them.

Ordinarily I do not think it advisable

several of the professed leading news
papers of the state make open, positive,
and direct chages of bribery and corrup
tion in office against some of the federal
officials in tlrs state, and the editors
thereof profess to stand ready to prove
the charges, I propose to give them full
and ample opportunity to do so.
If the charires are true, the officers so
charged are totally unfit to manage the
trust confided to them. The sooner the
fact can be ascertained, the better it
will be for the publ.c. If the charges
are false the sooner they are shown to
be so. the better it will be for the officers
concerned, aud all others who are willing
to see justice accorctel to whGia it is
It is a matter of general notoriety m
one section of this state that a promi
nent individual thire residing openly
slates and declares in public speeches
and private conversations that he, act-
inc with the knowledgo and under the
advice of others, agreed to receive and
did receive from others a certain sum of
money as a consideration for his working
and voting for the nominees of one-of
the political parties at the elections just
now past- If two or more parties com
bined and confederate together, as claim
ed in the case referred to, for the pur
pose cf inducing another to offer a bribe
to an elector to influence his-vote at any
election where a member of congress is
to be elected, then the persons bo com
