His excellency , Hadji Hassien Ghooly
ahem ! Once more , his excellency
Haoji Hassien Ghooly Khan once and
again ; all togther now. This is a news
itpmand not only is it important hut
it's true : His excellency Hadji Hassien

minister plenipotentiary from Persia to
the United States , has arrived in New
York on the steamer Servia.
Alderman McQuade , a boodler of
New York City , who was convicted and
sentenced to the penitentiary for seven
years , has just been released from Sing
Sing after serving twenty.one months.
He has been granted a new trial on tech
nical grounds. The belief , however , is
current that McQuade will never again
be called to the box for trial. He is
therefore to all intents and purposes a
free man. Justice wi'l ' cry in vain when
technical rubluVh of the legal machinery
protects a guilty man from receiving
his just desert"
WESTERN dressed beef has gradually
taken the place of the domestic article
in the east. The prejudice which once
existed is now gone since consumers
have found that beef dressed in the
west is of better quality and of lower
price than the home product. In the
past few years the beef packing indus
try of the west has grown to great pro
portions It is likely to supply the
whole country within a few yearssince
a better grade of cattle can be slaught
ered in the great corn belt of the Mis
souri valley and laid down fresh in every
city at a nominal price.
The latest is the saurkraut trust
which is monopolizing the business of
the country and running up the price of
that delicacy to a criminal degiee. The
promoters of this monopoly propose to
cultivate an immense farm near St.
Louiand raise their own cabbage. They
will probably change their miiicte , how
ever , as they will conclude that there
is no good of raising cabbages wjien
dead leaves and potato vines are strung
all over the country. With a beer trust
and a saurkraut trust in existence , the
lover of personal liberty has a gloomy
future before him.
The report jf the majority of the
Senate Finance Committee on the House i
tariif bill is a document of remarkable
power. It is the greater pleasure to be .
able to commend this report unreserv-
edlybecause the Tribune cannot entire
ly commend the changes of duty which
the Senate committee has proposed.
But the committee itself proposes to ,
continue hearings and the collection of !
information while the bill is under dis- 1
cussion , and so contemplates that mod (
ifications may be found desirable. Nor j
should this be thought strange , when it
is considered that the Senate committee
had but two mouths in which to examine
the House bill , upon which six months
have been spent , and to prepare another.
It was not to be expected that a task so
great could be performed without any (
mistakes or errors of judgmeut whatever t
in so short a time. f
"Here are these confounded newspa
pers telling the truth again , " is a com
plaint which statesmen have been often
called upon to make. Bismarck is now
reiterating it. against the editors of the
Rundschau for their publication of ex
tracts from the late Emperor Frederick's
diary , which extractsthough Bismarck
at first said that they were garbled , are
now. by the National Gazette , which
has had them compared with the orig
inalsaid , to agree with it. word for word.
The conductors of the National Gazette
will now have to answer to the pr-nce j
for this assertion , and likely enough
they will soon find themselves in jail.
Professor Geffeken , who is charged with
furnishing the Rundschau with the ex
tracts from the diary , has been arrested
and is on the high road to prison. Be
hold how good a thing it is to tell the
truth under despotism ! •
A negro , of Memphis1T/e . , Y7h ° u 'e- '
feuded himself aud family from the as
sault of two white men by killing his as
sailants was discharged by the police
judge before whom he was brought last
Tuesdayon the ground that he had done
perlectly right. The scene in court is
described as "extraordinary , " and we can
easily believe it , as the event itself is
ninstextraoidinary in that latitude. That
a Tennessee court should recognize the
right of a negro to defend himself wfyep ,
his assailants are white men , K a uew
departure whush , ijp.euks volumes for the
cour $ ajid lortho civilization of West
Tennessee. When a like sense of jus
tice is shown by the courts of Mississip
pi , Louisiana , and Texas we will begin
to have less or negro outrages. Wl\i '

the dazzling splendor of the Sovereign

A Woman Burst
into tears and declared she would have
no other stove if she didn't have a new

One Woman Hung
about her husband's neck and besought
him to buy her a Sovereign Jewel for
