Aunt Sophy's Slave Hnsband. A MEETING AFTER TWENTY YEARS' SEPAR ATION —WHAT AUNTY REMEMBERED. An interesting dram ma was enacted at noon tho other day in the baggage room in the Union depot, Old Aunt Sophia, the stout, good-natured colored woman who sweeps out the Union depot and waits upon the female passengers in the waiting room, was standing up with her hands behind her against a post in the baggage room. Two colored men entered. One was a well known ex press wagon driver; the other was a well dressed colored man about forty or for ty-five years of ago. Police othcer Han lon followed them into the room and pointed out Aunt Sophia. "Aunt Sophy, does you know this man?'' inquired the express wagon driver. The well dressed stranger peered curi ously beneath the old sun-bonnet and waited anxiously for the expected recog nition. Hut the old colored woman af ter a hasty glance at the face of the stranger, responded shortly and gruffly. "No, Bar;I don't know tho gem'man." "What! Sophy,...

The Independent. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1577. Justice Bradley Chosen. Justice Bradley of the U.S. Supreme Court, has been choseu as the fifth Judge ou the Electoral Commission. Republicans iv New York are congrat ulating themselves on this choice. Dem ocrats are correspondingly despondent. It is not saying much for public faith in the public men of the country, when it is supposed that political patizanship will invade the high and sacred realm of the supreme judiciary. But it might be profitable to ask the question, where is this lack of faith most apparent ? Ev idently among party politicians and ex treme partizans who, estimating all men by their own selfish standard, suppose that personal honesty and official integ rity are not any longer realities, but good old traditions of the past; well enough to speculate about, but of no consequence in modern politics. The masses of the people, through their po litical exponents at tbe national capitol, have in this crisis determined to appeal t...

Fun and Sentiment. A smart thing—A mustard plaster. Congressional motto farttho Winter —Oh, let me be jawful. Society journals mention that bridal trips are becoming unfashionable. In Brazil diamonds are found on moun tains 6,000 feet above the sea. This is what makes them so high. An Alabama baby of negro parentage has exactly one-half of his body white and the other half black. Count him in. What is the difference between the death of a barber and a sculptor ? One curls up and dyes ; and the other makes faces and busts. In carving a turkey in the presence of strangers it is a breach of etiquette to stop moro than twice to spit on your hands and get a new holo. Gen. Shekman is credited with saying that hereafter a new course would be pursued with the Indians. Why not pursue die Indians themselves.

Not at Home. Many ladies whose time is well em ployed in the necessary duties and de tails of domestic life, whose families are large and whose income is limited, find it is hard to bestow many hours in a week to visiting or receiving visits. Perhaps they may be teaching the younger children, or supervising the lessons of tbe elder ones; writing, mak ing up accounts, marking or mending linen, cutting out or manufacturing clothes, or, in short, making every min ute of the day available for work of some kind, in a thorough, honest house wifely manner. They may bo kindly, genial women, and delight in society, but will not neglect their domestic du ties. What are they to do when a loud knock at the door announces a visitor ? It may be an intimate friend, but quite as likely a mere acquaintance: which ever it be, she must be denied. Friends, however welcome, are at times an inter ruption, and the good housewife cannot afford to ofiend them, neither does she for one instant desire to do s...

A Wonderfal Mine. About ten miles southeast of Cracow, the former capital of Poland, are situated the famous salt-mines at Wieliczku, in Galicia. The area of this wonderful mineral deposit, as at present defined, measures two ami one-half miles in length, by a little more than one-half in breadth, and its solid depth • is about 980 feet. It is intercalated in | strata of the tertiary formation, con- j sistiog of compact fossiliferous clays, and rests at the base on a foundation of I sandstone. The principal minerals as- j sociated with it aro gypsum, bitumeu, a&hjdrite, and the sulphates of baryta, strontia, and sulphur. The quality of i the salt varies greatly —ono portion of j it, named "green salt]" containing from 5 to 6 per cent, of clay: another, called gpiza. being mixed with sand, and a third, known as ssyftfr, and occurring ehietiy at the lower levels, being per fectly pure, and deposited ia large crys talline masses.

Am Irish Arcadia. THE MODEL TEMPEBANCE MANUFACTURING VILLAGE OF BEBSBBOOK. John G. Richardson, the great Manu facturer of linens, seems to have suc cessfully solved the problem of giving employment to a community of 4,000 Eersons, whilst at the same time greatly enefitting them by surrounding them with every incentive to temperance and moral restraint. Mr. Richardson is the owner of (5,000 acres of land at Bessbrook, Ireland, on which are quarries of blue granite and farms that are successfully worked, and in the midst of which is the village of Bessbrook, with the great mill, offices and warehouses of the Bessbrook Spin ning Company. The village is laid out with streets that are lined with little cottages for workmen, with larger houses lor the mill officials, and there is also a beauti ful villa, occupied by the owner of the vast estate. Every cottage has a door-yard decor ated with beautiful flowers; and the propei-ty includes a public square to add to its attractiveness. There a...

The Independent. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 9. 1877. The Electoral Commission at Work. The Electoral Commission has been slowly working away ou the political complication during tbe past week. Charles O'Connor leads the Democrat ic forces, and Wm. M. Evarts the lit tle man with the powerful mind wields the baton of intellectual combat as the Republican leader. The Georgia Elec tors constitute the bone ot preseut con tention. What the conclusion will be no one can tell. The watchers on tiie political battlements are jubilant aud aad by turns. Bettiug on the final re sult has ceased altogether. The coun try seems to have submitted gracefully to the compromise measure, and is now calmly awaiting the result, as it shall be announced by the statesmen into whose hands the case is committed. At the rate the commission is doing their work, they will scarcely reach a con clusion ere the 4th, of March. The time wherein to give the subject the •consideration its improtance demands, is at best limited. I...

The English Workingman's Home. Mr. Charles Barnard has a paper with the above title in Scribner for January, from which we take the following in ro gard to the Shaftsbury Park homes for workingmen in London: On tho streets one meets well-dressed and apparently well-to-do working peo ple. Here is a jolly company of hearty children just loose from school,—living testimony of the healthfulness of the town. Yonder a man is tending one of the gardens, and there a young girl is cutting roses from the luxuriant vines that trail over her door. There are flowers everywhere in the greatest abundance, and every patch of garden is a new conceit in horticulture. With in the houses are supplied with every convenionce of gas, water and heating aparatus, and all save the very cheapest are supplied with bath rooms. The first floor usually contains a hall with stairway, a living room, with one or two windows on the street, a kitchen, a sullery and a closet in an extension in the rear. On the second f...

Harmony In Dross. In costumes nothing is more common than to see colors employed to gether which aradiscordant; for instance purple and green. Now, be the dress or bonnet ever so well made and the wearer ever so beautiful, the effect of anch ignorance will be unpleasant in the extreme. Every color has its per fect harmony, which is called its con trast, and also all other colors which harmonize with it in different degrees. When two colors are associated which do not accord, the addition of a third may make a harmonious group. The same rule holds good with three or more colors. There are two or more kinds of harmony acknowledged in the grouping of colors, namely: the har mony of contrast and the harmony of analogy. When two colors are dissimi lar anil associated agreeably, such as orange and blue or lilac and cherry, they form a harmony of contract. And when two distant tones of one color are associated, such as very light and very dark blue, they harmonize by analogy. Of course, in...

Tho Turkish Army. The Turkish infantry soldier is simp ly incomparable as regards bravery, persistence, sobriety and skill in hand ling his weapons. When under fire he shows a coolness which only comes of tfue courage. If well organized and commanded the Turkish infantry would be invincible. Their arms and other war material are good. Their officers, on the other hand, have no idea of mod ern military science. They are totally ignorant of the practice of throwing out skirmishers, and tb*y do not know how to take the slightest advantage of •inequalities of ground, as was proved by their immense losses in the Servian campaign. As to the cavalry I have never seen them in battle, but I have observed that the generals in command are always escorted by a strong force of cavalry, which seems the more objec tional as this arm of the service is not very numerous in Turkey. A Turkish cavalry soldier never trots; he has only two paces, the walk and the treble galop (triple galop). On the wnolo...
