Paris May 4) Correspondent of the London Timet.', Clubs, toe, are cropping tip on all sides clubs for discussion of political airairs clubs for dlsseminat tlng Inflammatory and irreligious sentiments, clubs Tor men and clabs for women. There have appeared in corners of several Ked newspapers of late short notices that places of meeting would shortly be esta blished where "citoiienne might congregate" and let off the steam of their enthusiasm. Two or three pre liminary assemblies were held with closed doors at the Maine of Passy, I suppose, as rehearsals of a forthcoming performance. Wlthn the last week, however, fa. . vwnvu rauiuio 1V1U1, UCrtttiU lUdltiS make a circuit of the rflfferent arrondlssemenU, lay. Ing down their articles of faith, and inviting all women to join In a common canse. I was very doubtful as to whether a member of the sterner sex would be permitted to enter the hallowed precincts, but, thinking the attempt worth trying, I got into a carriage yesterday evening with a friend, accom panied by a femalenewsvender who occupies one of the kiosks upon the boulevards, her mission being to smuggle us into the place nnder her protection and defend ns from rabid "cltlzencsses" In case of danger. The meeting was to be held on the Boulevard d'ltaile. in the lowest quarter of Paris, soma distance be yond Montrouge. After a drive of three quarters of an hour we reached a kind of outhouse, sur mounted by a red Peg, and through the carefully closed shutters of which came murmurs of subdued voices, and long streams of light spreading across the road. We entered the building without knock ing, and found ourselves In a fllthy room, reeking with evil odors, and crowded with women and chil dren of every age. Mot of them appeared to belong to the lowest order of society, and wore loose untidy jackets, with white frilled caps upon their heads. At the end of the room was a table littered with papers and books, and behind It sat a row of women, with red scarfs over their shoul ders and red belts about their waists. None took much notice of ns at first, being too much occupied with the oratory of a Una-looking young woman with streaming black hair and flashing eyes, who dilated upon the rights of women amid ejaculations and shakings of the head, and approving pinches of snuff from the occupants of the benches near ns. "Men are laches," she cried ; '-they call them selves the masters of creation, and are a set of iolts. They complain of being made to fight, and are always grumbling ovr their woes: let them go and join the craven band at Versailles, and we will defend the city ourselves. We have petroleum, and we have hatchets and strong hearts, and are as ca pable of bearing fatigue as they. We will man the barricades, and show them that we will be no longer trodden down by them. Such as still wish to light may do so side by side with ns. Women of Paris, to the front 1" She sat down out of breath and rather confused, having had to bear np against considerable tittetlng on account of the Imperfection of her French and the strangeness of her similes; but she looked very handsome, and might have sat for the portrait of one of the heroines of the first devolution ; but there was that tn her eye which made me think as .1 looked at her that I should not like to be her husband. . REMINISCENCES OF AUBER. Ills Personal Peculiarities. The death of Auber has created great regret in musical circles. A personal friend of the late composer furnishes the N. Y. Post with some Interesting reminiscences of the man and of bis mode of life. The writer says: Anberwas but a poor sleeper. He actually took less sleep than Napoleon I. He retired at one In the morning and rose at four in the summer and five lnthe winter. He then went through the Important operation of dressing, which he periormed entirely without the aid of a valet, ane" with the greates-. care; for he was very particular about his linen and the general appearance of his person. He dressed simply. In sober colors, but yet there always was about him a touch of the past beau. His toilet ao compllshed.he would sit dovn to his piano and com pose until six or seven o'clock, at which hours his doors were open to visitors. He received all those who asked admittance to his presence. Then for a couple of hours or so he went through the very tedious and fatiguing task or listening to the applications of parents dedrlng to obtain the ad mittance of their children to the Conservatoire of Music, of which he was director; or hearing the complaints of pupils as to the mode of singing they were forced to adopt by their irofessors; or again glvinrjhls attention to the denunds for changes of clauses ; or listening to the singing of those who wanted to obtain his opinion and bis advice. In the latter case be often accompanied the applicant on the piano himself, seeming rathir pleased if the pieces chosen were from his own operas. ; In aummer, on fine afternoons, it the fashionable hours of 4 or 6, he could be seen in the Champs Ely sees, seated in a "flue" a kind of light carriage driving a pair of spirited, hlgh-stepjing, black Eng lish hones, two beautiful animals with swan-like necks and limbs as tine as those of antelopes. Uls English groom was on the box behinj him, with hla anus folded and as stiff as English rrooms usually are. On the seat to his left sat a little black and tan terrier, very small, but a great pet Of his master. This turnout had a stylish but quick and genteel appearance which denoted the retluei taste of its owser. At half-past 6 he took his only mea. of the day, his dinner. He neither breakfasted mr lunched, but Binply partook of one ropaat, and tiat a very light ind simple one. After his dlnnei he would regularly go to the Grand Opera, from which he re turned at I o'clock in the morning alone and quite unprotected. He always very much patronized the ballet corps, assisted la Its selection, tad was a 1 1 great iarorlte with the ladles who composto. it uuvt was, iii i lie tun bciibo ux iii6 wuru,auuisneu j VEutlemsu.

The great composei enjoyed ao income of a hun dred and fifty thouBmd francs. He washumue and generous, and aways ready to oblige. The numerous appllcatlons'or help which were made to him were always listened to and granted. All lis attendants were old people who had watted upon him, some for about titrty years, others twenty or twenty-five. The port of the lodge was at least seventy to seventy-live years old. Auber had In habited the same house in the Rue St. George for thirty years or more. He never left Paris, w.lch he loved, even once during the hut twenty jears of hut existence, not even in the summer. The Chaplain of the Connecticut Legisla ture prays 45 minutes.

""uul There were in the office two portable safes of the company, containing valuable packages for the next run out; among others one sent down from the Franklin National Bank of this city early n the evening, containing $i,ooo, and consigned to the paymaster of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. The keys of the safes were la Bradley's pockets. The only fastening in the doors was by a bolt sliding oyer from one door past the other, the first door being braced Inside at the bottom. It was probably balf.past 1 o'clock before the messengers were asleep, and between that time and the arriving or Cincinnati train the robbing was accomplished. The train messenger found the daor open, and the two men, Collier and Bradley, In a state of stupefac tion from chloroform, with which drug the air ol the room was still loaded. A large sponge lay near Bradley's nostrils, and the two men were onlv aroused by a great deal of shaking. The keys were In the safe, and the floors strewed with mutilated remains of packages, which had been plundered Some packages had been carried off entire. As the way bills are missing in many cases.it Is impossible to state with any degree of certainty what amount was realized by the thieves, of whom it is unlikely there were less than two or three. The estimate of 160,000 is believed by the officers of the company .here to cover the outside figures. Where it has gone seems to be so completely covered as to give no chance for conjecture. Mr. Weir, agent of the company at Cincinnati, arrived from Cincinnati to-dav, and Mr. U-orton, evening, and have commenced a thorough lnvestlga- w wivumnwimicn ubieuuiug iue roooery. The men have been somewhat attlicted all day by their enforced sleep, which, had the doors of the room not been left partlaliy open by the robbers, might have proved fatal. . Collier has been In the service of the company about seven years, and Bradley over a year. They were In charge of the depot ofllce day and night, taking their sleep there as they could catch it. A WHIRL WIND IN NEWARK. A Column of Dust from Earth to Sky. At half-past 11 o'clock this morning an extraor dinary sight was seen at the corner of Bridge and Broad streets, which for a few moments caused con siderable excitement. At first a small quantity of dust was seen to gather In the middle of the street upon the right hand, going towards the horse-car track. This gathering was about the size and shape of a bushel basket, aud appeared as If a strong cur rent of wind arising from the inside of the earth was forcing It upwards as though In a compact body. In a few seconds, however, It began sensibly to in crease in size and to rise higher. Although no wind was perceptible It seemed to be whirling violently around, and it was soon moving so rapidly as to almost appear stationary. On approaching close to the body an Impression of fear and awe was irre sistible. As it still grew and grew the dust collected on all sides of this centre and came Into the moving column In sheets, but on becoming part of the body remained with it as a solid mass, from which es caped, seemingly, not a particle. At this time its size was that of a sugar hogshead and of about Its form, being apparently solid. From the mass came a moaning noise which grew la volume with the increase of matter. Presently it took a conical shape and then began to stretch up wards, the base or open part becoming wider on the ground as the point ascended, its progress upwards was then most rapid, and in perhaps a minute the eyo conia not perceive tha ami of the tapering point, bo great was its altitude, and it appeared to have de creased into a thread. The spire of the Reformed creased into a thread. The spire of the Reformed Church and the flag-staff In the Park, between which the whirlwind was, seemed less than a fifth of the height of the column. By this lime the street was packed with astonished and alarmed people. A horse-car coming up, its driver would have driven right into the whirl, but was stopped by trie passen gers. In the car a devout ladv (Catholic) told her be,ads In terror, while other ladles were much terri fied. By this tiitfe the column had by Its size swept np the dust from all sides, aud stones as large as a man's fist were drawn to Its base, but did not, as far as seen, rise. The revolutions became slower and more graceful, till at length the magnificent column fairly waltzed to slow measure round and round. Occasionally It would change to the right or left of Its position a few feet, while Its breadta spread out over a large surface of ground, or nearly the whole width of the street. With graceful motion the speed decreased, the dust from the heavens began to fall, and the column fell little by little to its natural place. For many minutes afterwards the dust con tinued falling from the clouds. A smaller column was raised a minute or two alter wards on the side walk, but bad not dust enough to form Its strength. Some pieces of paper were, however, picked np and carried over the way: to the top of the flag-staff, touching the pole as theywent np. A piece of ground at least thirty feet square, swept entirely clean, showed afterwards where the base of the column had been. Rework Advertiser, yesterday. DISTRESSING AFFAIR. A Father Accidentally Kills Ilia Son. The Richmond Dispatch of the 18th instant eave: One of the most distressing accidents we have ever been called on to record occurred In this city on yesterday afternoon, at about half-past 7 o'clock, resulting in the death of a son from a Eistol in the hands of his father. About the our above named a number of small boys of the neighborhood were standing In front of the grocery 6tore of Mr. Vincent Lucas, at the cor net of Franklin and Twentieth streets, one of whom had a small single-barrelled pistol in his hands, with which it appears that the boys had been playing. Mr. Lucas' attention was at tracted to the circumstance, and he took the plbtol to see if it might not be loaded and en danger the lives of the boys. In the act of examining it the pistol exploded, and the ball which It contained struck the breast of his own eon, Andrew Lucas, passing obliquely through his heart. He instantly fell, and died without having uttered a word. Young Lucas was be tween nineteen and twenty years of age, of prepossessing appearance, popular manners, and highly esteemed by a large circle of youth ful associates. He was the idol of his parents, who fondly anticipated that their son, just en tering upon manhood, would be the stay and comiort of their declining years. Alas! that in the very act of trying to save his neighbor's child from harm the father should see his own son fall a, yjctjm to the generous impulses of hla heart. Our whole community deeply sympa thize with the bereaved parents. The opium trade In India will net 140,000, 000 next year. There are forty-three aspirants for the Pre sidential chair in 1673.

Mny 20 The Senate met at half-past 11 o'clock. Anions tbe lew auditor in tbe g&llsriea were the delegation of Indians now on business with the Gov ernment. Mr. Morton, rising to a personal explanation, caused a letter to be read from Oanimissionor Williams, snowing advance copy of the trea'y was Beat to him (Mr. Morton) at Indianapolis, about tbe tirtt of Mny, and that some changes were made therein about the itlx instant, in tbe twelllb and twenty second articles. Mr. Patterson inquired whether what the Tribune pub lished was tbe same as the official copy of the treaty!1 Mr. Morton replied tDat it was, witb the exception that one of tbe articles ws omitted by mistake. Major McDonald, Chief Clerk of tbe Senate, at the re quest of Mr. Morton, made a statement tbrougu tbe Vioe 1'remlent to theetlect tbat on tbe day on wbicb tbo treaty was communicated by tbe Preident. not wishing to send tbe official copy to tbe printer, he aeked and received from Mr. Morton tbe last proof of tbe treaty for tbat purpose. Mr. Morton remarked, from Wednesday at 'J o'clock till Thursday he had no copyof the treaty in his possession. He repeated that tbe hrst copy was sent to him at Indian apolis, and that afterwards he received a revised or cor. ret-ted copy, and in this coon action he c&ased to be read a letter from Dr. Charles 8. Taft, saying thut he was in the Senator's room before the treaty was sout to the Senate. The (Senator took from a larce envelope a printed paper, and asked hira to put it into the tire, which he did, the Senator remarking to him that ho had no use for it, ax he bad received a eoinpieieenpy of the treaty. Mr. Stunner said be received a copy of tbe treaty from the State Department fifteen. minutes after twelve o'clock on Monday, the 7th instant, alter the ottioiul signatures bad been attached.

He supposed everyone had his tbeory, and he had his, nd that was than the treaty could not get out excepting through a Senator.

FENKSYLYAX1A LEKISLITURE. Senate. Habrisiitjko, May 80. The S.nate met at 10 o'clock. Ilonse resolution to adjourn nine die on the ltitu of May was taken up and amended so as to adjourn on the 23J of May, at 4 o'clock P. M., and was then passed and ordered to be sent buck to tbe House for concurrence Mr. Davis (Dam.) olUred the following preamble and resolution : HVerta , Tbe House yesterday, in its action upon the. amendments made y tbeSosate" to the' House bill rela tive to i be Philadelphia, Registry law, has violated the courtesy uue from one branch of the Legislature to an other, in tbctit peremptorily lefused to take any action whatever upon sa d aiu.ndn.ents commonly known as tbe K gistry law, and has neither informed tbe Senate of its action thereon nor taken tie usual steps to confer upon tbe subject of the ditfereaces between the two houses thereon; and Wherea, The said amendments made by the Senate are of inestimable valuo to tie people of tLe State, in that they provide for the purity ol tbe ballot-hox and restore te tbe minority of the voters in Philadelphia tbe ritht to a voice in tbe solection of their due proportion of election officers, of which right tley have heretofore been unjustly deprived, by providtog, first, tbat the return judges of election slull meet in the presence of tbe Court of Oonunon Fleas to count un tbe returns thereof, and tbat said Court may summarily prevent fraudulent counting of returns second, tbat thesaid ciurt may restore to the eanva,s list the name of any qualified voter fraudulently or un-' juttly stricken oil tbo said list, and tnua prevent dis qualification of voters bypartisan decree; and third, that the minority of the people through their reoresentatives en the Board of Aldermen shall have the right to select their due proportion of itspectora and judges of election instead of the majority of the Board of Aldermen appointing all t tbe said officers.aud thus giv ing to one purty the absolite control ol tbe ballot-box in the city of Philadelphia, ant tbe said amendments being vitally necessary to praventthe recurrence of more blood shed, hereto! ore oecurnro at tbe meeting of the return judges as aforesaid, aa well is te put an end to the grow und infamous frauds heretotore perpetrated inoounting the votes of the people and in forging the returns thereof therefore ' hnolmd, by the Senate of Pennsylvania, That until the House shall rescind its unparliamentary, unjust, and dis courteous action upon tha bill aforesaid, and take tbe usual steps for a conference oi the disagreement between the two houses thereon, the Stnate will appoint no com mittees of conference upon ani billa upon wbicb there are disagreements, and all Senau committees of conference now in existence are hereby diicharged from tbe subject matters committed to tbem by the action of tbe Senate and that tbe clerk communlotte thia resolution to the House. Mr. Munima inquired what effect the passage of this resolution would have on the appropriation bill, now in the bands of a committee of coiterence. The Speaker replied tluit it wiuld discharge them from any luriuer uvuBiuDriuim ui tutsuojeCb. Mr. Billingtelt doubted the power of the Sonate te legally discharge any conforeuol committee. Mr. Evans said that the resolttion waa simply intended to destroy the independent actiin of a co-ordinate branct of the government. 1 Mr. Rutan was not surprised the resolution. It had been indicated by tbe oourse of the Democracy from th first day of tbe session. Tbe Republicans were ready to accept the issue and go before tie country on it. Intact they were gratified that the resolution bad been off ered, because it placed the party u ascendancy in the Senate in its true revolutionary positiia. If the Democrats could a fiord to do without the appropriation bill so could tbe Republicans. Jjur. Davis remarked at this point "and may God save tbe right." Several Republicans enceattred to gain the floor, but there were other critis from tie Republican side ot "lot tbo resolutions pass." Mr. Rutan asserted that it wis absurd for the Senate to attempt to charge disoourtesyupon the House tor doing a thing now which bad been douMi least ouce before during the session on tbe raid bill. Mr. Muinnia expressed bis fonder tbat any party, led by such experienced leaders asthe Democracy, were will ing to go belore the people ci such an issue as tbat of stopping tbe Appropriation 1 and preventing supplies to tbe soldiers' orphans as il as other charities, lie scouted the idea either that ,us House would recede or that the Governor would callaa extra session. Mr. Osterhaut moved to ptpone the resolutions for the present. Not agreed to. Mr. Kuian again expressed the hope and belief that the Uvuse would never recede fum its position on the Regis try law. i Mr. Randall inquired hrw tie gentleman dare assert what action the House wouU take until William li. Mann, of Philadelphia, had been ejueUuu!' he had been In the House. i Mr, Kutan said he spoke i f auhority of some mombera of peaoe standing aiound biu. Mr. Allen denounced tlii resolutions aa being entirely partisan in their aim. Air. iirooke denied thatthe Hotse had committed any difciorteus act.

The Metropolitan Fire Extinguishing Company, which proposes to extinguish Ores by meaus of carbonic acid gas Instead of water, completed their organization yesterday afternoon. The company claim that carbonic acid gas oan be delivered through tbe stealers at present used by the Fire Department as easily as water, and Hh far greater effect. To prove this to be the case, they propose to make a public trial Of their invention on a grand Bcale. At the last session of the Legislature a law was passed authorizing the company to lay pipes three leet beneath the level ol the streets for the purpose ol conveying their gas. it is their purpose shortly to avail themselves of this permission by carrying pipes from one of the reservoirs of the Manhattan Gas ( ornpany to a vacant lot distant two miles and a half la the upper part of the city, upon which au ordinary three-story building is to be erected and filled with material of the most combustible charac ter. The building is then to be tired and engines summoned in the usual manner. On their arrival the hose will be attached to the gas pipes of the company.and the Bremen will proceed to extinguish the fire with carbonic acid gas. This experiment will, it is estimated, cost f.10,000, bnt so great Is Hie confidence of the managers in the success of the scheme that they feel justified tn the expenditure of this large sum on a public test. The Fire Commissioners, the heals of the different city departments, Governbr Hoil'ium aud other prominent citizens are expected to be present on the occasion, in additton to deputations from other States, A. 1'.

Xews savs: A singular and most extraordinary accident oc- i-urreu on jtionaay evening last, wnicn resulted in the death of Mrs. Ida Wittman, and the serious and perhaps fatal injury of her two children. It appears that Mrs. Wittman went to the barn for the purpose of setting a hen, and, as is the custom of some farmers, she desired to mark the eggs. Accordingly cuoiciuuii-u iu mo uouae ana asaea ner nusoauu Where he had tlUt the nencil used for tlmt nnrnnu He told her she would find it on a certain shelf in the barn, and she returned for it, followed by her iwu unio cuuuieu. uu tue larm is a Btone quarry, and blasting powder is oi course used. A can eon. talning powder was on the shelf on which the pencil lay, and also some matches. The unfortunate woman in reaching for the pencil, knocked down the can and the matches. The matches Ignited and an explosion ensued, burning both mother and children terribly. On Tuesday Mrs. Wittman suf fered terribly, but before her death, which took piacenn w eanesaay, ner agonizing pain was over, une oi tne cniniren is in a very precarious condl turn. HHOiir. XNZ23LLiaZ3Zt7CZ2. The St. Clement's Church Difficulty. Court of Common Pleas Judge Ludlow. The matter of the application for an Injunction to restrain the vestrymen of St. Clement s Church from dismissing Rev. Mr. Battcrson, the reetor, and nis assistant. Mr. Stewart, camo up this morning. Judge Ludlow stated that he had received a letter from a Justice of the Supreme Court, setting forth that that Court could not take dd this nueHtton. nnri that it would not be considered a want of respect ior hub i,uuii, to near me matter, lie tnernrnr requested that the argument should be proceeded WllU. Affidavits Of Mr. Ttatr.prnnn unit nth - vvuvin ifVIO i cavi In which it was charged that a number of those voting for the acting vestrymen were members of other chnrches and not of St, Clement's; that no tenure of service was agreed upon or stated at the time of the entry uoon the mlnistrv of th cinii-.-h of Messrs. Batterson and Stewart; that a majority of the congregation desired Messrs. Batterson and Stewart to remain, and that the vestrymen had no BDtndrttjr to Hoiora UiMn. -s.- .t , .... in opening me argument ror the plaintiffs, Rev. Mr. Batterson and others, Mr.Hansoin Bald that this cue was peculiarly iree irom a dispute as to facts, and the Intervention of the Courts was mk tnr tk protect certain property righta in the Church, and to prevent an illegal act which would work Irrepara ble Injury to the congregation and tne Church. It la known that there Is pending a suit in the Supreme m ucrauiiuo uio very eAistence oi mis vestry, and yet, notwithstanding the pendency of that suit, these vestrymen have undertaken to perform one of the gravest acts that could by any possloillty fall within their sphere. So far back as the reign of Edward VI tbe power or the vestry to discharge a pastor waa denied. Judge Ludlow suggested that In the case referred to the question was a financial one, but in this case there was a question behind all that, viz., whether a vestry de facte, with the sanction of the Episcopal vuuiu uuuer mo cuuuua oi me i-piacooal Church remove the rector. v Mr. Hansom argued tbat the rector was an Integral ui uio iigiuu nun i uicuiuer oi tne vestry, and ' j uuua muiuui uu presence ana consent was voia. une power to disfranchise a member rests with the body itself, unless delegated, and nowhere In the canons of the Church can there be found vesting the power of dismissal of a rector iu me veMry. job pansn or congregation can alone remove the rector, and that removal must be approved by the ecclesiastical authority of the diocese, In this case an attempt was made to re move the minister of the church without any charge or trial a proceeding unwarranted, and against juDia-Q auu iiguu In reply Mr. Biddle said It was painful that the case waa oeiore tne court at all. It would have been more decorous for the parties, instead of rush- iug into court to nave tried to nave the matter arbl iraien ouisiae or tne court. This is the riret time w ithin half a century that any of the members of this denomination have had resort to civil tribunals to determine their disputes. It waa a matter of priue mat, nowever tney may nave differed in the Episcopal Church as to discipline, etc.. thev h,i kept out of court. Mr. Batterson Is not complalnlmr n b uioiiiiBnai iiuui mo liuuisiry ei tne rrotestaut Episcopal Church, but for the rectorship of this cuurcu, auu ins lesort siiouia oe to an action at law to receive salary. As to the power of the vestry, he argued that they are oillcers in a body to perform their work fully and not bv halves. The election of a reetor tn caae of a vacancy is vested by the charter and by-laws In the vestry, and, ex necesHitate, the power of removal must reside in them. This is but the severance of a connection that Is without term, aud it cannot be pretended that when he has an action at law tbat he can by Injunction tie up the hands of the vestry, and coutlnue these disorders In the church for another year. He recognized in the fullest tense the right of men to worship according to their consciences, but It struck him as being mobi extraordinary that persons becoming members of a church, accepting its rules and formulas, should, the moment tliey become so associated, act contrary to those rules and formulas and when trouble arises, as in this case, say "we are martyrs to the cause of faith." If they do not like the formulas there is a very simple thiug for them to do let them depart in peace. It la no business of the court how the veatry are acting, so long as It appears that they are acting wlthiu tne scope of their powers. And In thla case they acted with great caution, and their action received the approbation of the ecclesiastical authority. At the close of the argument the case was held under advisement. FINANCE AND COMMERCE. EVeNINO TBLIOBAlfH Offio,i Saturday. May Mi, 187L J TLe condition of our money market continues easy and greatly in favor of good borrowers, but lenders complain loudly of tbe lack of spirit among tbe former and of the low scale of rates obtainable for accommodations. There Is a fair amount of business doiug in loans on city real Cfctate eeenrities, but with this exception there is an entire lack of spirit in the market save what is exhibited at the Stock Board. Some lenders who would not otherwise touch such securities are now turning their attention to loans on country property. Rates are very easy anl almost nominal. Cold Is qnlct, steady, and rather weak, selling at mfo,113, closing at the latter. Uovernment bonds aie quiet but firm at last nif-'at's closing prices. At the Stock Board there was a good demand andjurne dealings at some advance. In bute and City loans there was nothing done. Among the rallread stocks Camden and Am boy was the chief attraction, owing to the report favorable to the proposed lease of the road, and the stock sold from 130a133. rennsvlvania K.iilroad was quiet, with some DOUBLE SHEET THREE CENTS.
