nean ports supplied most of the import
ed ore, which it is claimed is of super : .
for quality and is almost wholly used in
the manufacture of Bessemer pig 4ron
near the Atlantic Coast. Twenty-three
States are making pig iron, while there
are only eleven works making Bessemer
steel ingots, and using twenty-sil l con
verters. The rails were first made here
in 186714 fill orders: It is pro bable
that this year the'number and capacity
of these works will be insreased, and
1,250,000 net tons of rails will be- pro
duced, to be increased to a quarter of a
million the year following.
The Thomas-Gilchrist basic pricess
has not yet been practically introduced,
though at two establishments its early
c. use is probable. More Bessemer steel
is now made here than in Great . Britian.
Street rails figure conspicuously in the
production of the year, amounting to
16.894 tons, of which 8,055 tons were
Bessemer. The Elmira Company uses
silicon tops. Nineteen States and one
Territory made rails last year, the in
" crease in this State being one-half the
increase over the entire country.
Blooms and billets from ore are made,
chiefly in the Champlain district of
New York,and from scrap and pig iron
in this State.

The Philos°PAY of EheielaiNg•
It is not often that arty one invents a
new kind of.swindle, but,the career of
the "PrOfessionat polnamist" who was
arrested a few days ago shown that the
very oldest forms of imposition can - by
new "combinations", be putln'enols

Bigamy and forgil.ere both very old
Omen !NOE - is a new thing for any one
to to bigatay as a basis, for for
gery, though when It is explained the
thing seems simple enough. Women
are,.it is well-known, easily deceived
by adventurers who have a goes/ ad
dress, and consequently there, is noth
ing remarkable in the fact that such .s
man should succeed_ in getting a- wife
in- the first instance. But when this
was once acoompliahed all the rest was
plain sailing. The subsequent wives
on discovering that they were not leg-.I
ally married, were only anxious to do
all in thejr. foyer to hush matters up,
tad their male relatives appear to have
cordially' seconded them. If it had
been merely a qfiestion of I bigamy they
might not have done so; but in every
case the swindler, appears to have made
use Of hfis mat:Mond schemes as a ba
sis for pecuniary impisture, -and in
every case the self-love of the men he
had imposed upon led them, • after dis
covering the deception, to maintain a
discreet silence. In this way the man
was able to marry a dozen. wives, and to
maintain himself in great luxury for a
number of years, although it wu in the
power of a multitude of people to have
him locked up at any time. When his
.career of imposture was finally brought
to a close he was' an elderly man, and
had lived so long without detection,
and managed to have so much 'money:
always at commend, that he had • very
nearly established a character and
tion for himself in the community upon
which he preyed. i •
siindlespi no country
presents such ti )field`, as the United
States,`owing to the entire freedom of
women from restraint of any kind. In
England, or atilt; more in France, it
Would have been impossible for a "poly
gemist" to make much headway with
his victim without a pretty searching
inquiry being made into his history and
position by her friends. His plan of
offering to "settle" a considerable ends
of money upon his intended wife would
neoewsarily have' led to a request for an
interview, with his lawyer, and as ex
posure could hardly have been avoided.
But American Women's idea on the sub-
ject of, marriage are very, vague, and ao
far from their families being able to
shield them from an adventurer, their
sense of independence is so strong that
they resent the idea of interference
from any quarter, and, as a general
thing, take the matter entirely out of
their families hands. We are accus
tomed to look upon this liberty and in
dependence as among the strong points
of American women; but they have
their bad side. In the ease of women
only hulf euneated, as the majority of
our women are, it makes them an easy
prey to plausible a¥turers.
The career of be "polygamist,"
however, would have been impossible
if he bad had only feminine weakness
to work upon. He swindled a vast num
ber of men as well, , and their unanihng
nese; to expose him seems to be one of
the .itrikinc features of his case. We
cannot help thinking that what lay at
the root of .this unwillingness must
havebeem not merely a shrinking from
publicity and scandal. but also a posi=
five symyathy with the skill, audacity
and success of the swindler. Ina com
mercial age the faculty of getting mon-
ey is a quidity highly prized, and the
difference betefeen an honest and a de
praved ingennity in - this field is one
which to a great many people looks
rather conventional than otherwise. It
is so- common for people, for instance,
in Wall street, who have been uni3E4-
eallY denPunoed as reprobates at one
time, to turn up afterwards as "emi
nent financers" that any one may. well
be pardoned if he is consideyably con
fused as to the dividing line between
swindling and financiering, and if he
inclines in his secret heart to the be
lief that there his no difference but suc
cess. This sort of feeling about busi
ness must affect every one's mind more
or less and probably prodiice a tend
ency to look upon all brilliant and in
genious swindles with a sympathetic
eye. The sort of horror with which
pecuniary dishonesty was once looked
upon seems to have disappeared in,
great measure from the Anglo-Sazon
world. It is met with now chiefly a
mong "old-fashioned" or "conserva
tive" people. With most of us amuse
ment or curiosity is generally the feel
ing aroused by any new and startling
swindle. It II hard to understand how
the "polygamist" could have carried
on his operations so long unmolested,
unless a great many people thought
rather well of them, or at any rate
thought rather well of him for being
clever enough to carry them on.
Tire ABUSE OP POSTAL Cs#&—Ac
cording to the advices from Washing- .
ton, the Post Office inthorities have
determined to put a atop to the detesta
ble practices of that contemptible class
of persons who in their spite end
use the postal card tend the
mails for the purpose of annoying, in
sulting or injuring their acquaintances,
neighbors or real or supposed enimies.
Those who have recourse to this meth
od of gratifyibg their hate and aninlog
ity are the hyenas of society, and it is
a pity they can not be effectively pun
ished by denying them the privileges of
the Post Office altogether. In taking
ineaettres for their repression the Post
master Genend will receive the thanks
of the whcd country —the thanks not
:only of the inhabitants of the large
cities but of those of the smaller towns
allover the ' continent. The • smsdler
the community the larger the field of
,oPprations of- these social assassins.
One of the oreat objections made to
the introductlon of the postal card was
the facility its was likely to afford to
evil disposed: persons to indulge their
malicious , propensities in this way.
In devising n , plan to defeat • the pur
poses of these ,people Mr. James hie
effected a very wise reforM. As )anon
as the contemplated order is issued
postmasters will be required to deStro3i
all offencive cards upon notioe from.the
person to whom they-are addressed,
so that a repetition of the annoyance of
being made the recipient of one will be
hardly possible. The officer either at
the point of mailing or at the point of
delivery,' or both, may be notified, it is
ithder — stood, by the aggrieved party, and
they will thereupon exercise the ut most
vigilance in excluding the offensive
missive from the mails, : The ads-
