The author of this admirable little work has, for many years, been closely connected with Mr. Thos. Edison in his marvellous electrical experiments and inventions.

Six editions have already been sold in America and three editions in England.

In Congress-In the Senate: Blair Education Bill; Anti-Trust; Interstate Commerce; Pensions; Public Buildings; Boring wells; PorkPacking.

-In the House: Pensions; Interstate Commerce; Fortifications; Federal Elections; Utah; World's Fair; Tariffs; Speculation; Pacific Railroads; Coinage; Lard; Telegraph; Subsidies.

The Blair Education Bill having been disposed of for the present, it is unnecessary to describe its provisions now. It met with an adverse majority of 4 in the Senate on March 20th, 20 Democrats and 16 Republicans voting against its passage. Two years ago the bill passed a Senate smaller by six members than the present, with a majority of 10. The vote then stood at 39 to 29, total 68; now the decision is reversed by a vote of 36 to 32, total 68. Yet four of the new Senators voted for the bill this time, so that, neglecting persons and considering only the states represented, 8 votes have changed sides on the question. The Senators who voted both times with the majority were: Sherman and Payne of Ohio; Sawyer of Wisconsin; Cameron of Pennsylvania; Jones and Berry of Arkansas; Walthall of Mississippi, and Eustis of Louisiana. On March 22d, Mr. Blair introduced another Education Bill, which indicates, perhaps, the abandonment of his avowed intention to move a reconsideration of his defeated measure.

The so-called Anti-Trust Bill introduced by Mr. Sherman, resembles, in its amended form, measures which have been before several Legislatures. Certain combinations are declared unlawful and void, and the kind referred to is

defined as "contracts, agreements, trusts or combinations" between citizens or corporations of different States, or between them and citizens or corporations of foreign countries, "made with a view, or which tend to prevent" competition in the "importation, transportation or sale" of imported articles, or of articles of house production. The Attorney General and the District Attorneys are directed to prosecute the parties to such combinations, and something is said about the jurisdiction of the Circuit Courts over cases arising at common law or in equity; from which it may be inferred that the intention of the Bill is to produce criminal prosecutions. Section 2 provides for civil damages, the amount recoverable being double the damage sustained, with costs and fees. This Bill (a substitute for the original one) is reported from the Finance Committee of the Senate, from which it appears that "Finance" is a very comprehensive term.

By Senator Cullom an amendment to Section, 12 of the Interstate Commerce Act was introduced. The Commission is given authority, by this amendment "to inquire into the management of the business of all common carriers, and to keep itself informed as to the method in which the same is conducted." Upon request of the Commission, the District Attorney to whom it may apply, may commence, under direction of the Attorney General, proceedings for the enforcement of the laws.

Pensions came in for their usual share of attention in both Houses.

In the Senate a bill was introduced by Mr. Ingalls "providing that a soldier who has lost both legs or one arm and one leg, may get married at any time he may so desire, to some one to take care of him, and at his death the widow
