Autographic telegraphy, or the pro
cess of transmitting messages in the
actual hand-writing of the sender, has
occasionally during the past thirty
years constituted the special study of
scientific minds. So long since as
1850 F. C. Bakewell invented a copy
ing telegraph by means of which auto
graphic telegraphy was effected, and
this -was probably the first time it was
effectually accomplished. In this in-
stnnm trip mpssnrm 'was written bvrh I
" : TV " "T"". """"7
beuuer im u guuiuijr ma. ur vuriiian
on metallic paper or tin foil, and this
writing was by the Rid of mechanism
used to actuate electric currents in
such a way as to produce a record at
the distant station by the chemical de
composition of a solution with which
the receiving paper was damped. Both
the written message and the paper
were fixed around cylinders of similar
form and dimensions, one being placed
in the transmitting and ths other in
the recording, instrument and the cvl-
inders were caused to revolve with cor
responding velocities. Each time the
gummy, and consequently, raised lines
of. the writing -vere crossed by a point
er under "which the metallio paper was
traversed in the transmitter, a mark
corresponding in position was made on
the prepared paper at the receiving
end. It therefore followed that the
sum of all the marks reproduced the
writing itself. Mr. Bakewell success
fully REPRODUCED THE WRITING
In white on a blue ground, but the pro
cess failed to-become one of public util
ity owing to. the extreme slowness
with wbich the apparatus worked, and
the difficulty that was experienced in
maintaining uniform and synchronous
motion in the instruments. In 185G,
the Abbe Cassell, in Italy, endeavored
to solve the problem of autographic
tele; ;raphy in a similar manner. His
ripp: ratus was exhibited in England,
Marseilles and Paris and
Lyons. Plans, drawings, autograph
sketches were faithfully reproduced at
distant places, but it was found that
the apparatus had not only the defects
of Bakewcll's, but it was very costly
and complicated. Two other subse
quent workers in this direction were
M. Meyer and M. Lenoir, who tried to
accomplish the same results with ordi
nary ink. They, however, pursued
their investigations quite independent
ly of and unknown to each other. We
have recently been afforded the oppor
tunity of examining the latest example
of this class of apparatus at the Gene
ral Postoffice, where it has been sub
mitted to the authorities for trial.
This is the invention of M. d' Arlin
court of Paris, and its general princi
ples are similar to those which govern
Bakewell's system. The distinguish
ing feature in D'Arlincourt's apparatus,
however, is the introduction of an ex
tremely ingenious synchronous move
ment, by means of which the speed
of travel of the cylinders is rendered
uniform, both in the transmitting and
the recording machine. The message
to be sent, which may be either in the
ordinary hand or shorthand, is written
with a thick, gummy ink upon a strip
About twelve inches long and two and
one-half inches deep, which is wrapped
around the cylinder of the transmitting
instrument. A strip of white paper,
chemically prepared, and of similar
dimensions, is placed on the cylinder
of the recording apparatus, and the in
struments are placed in electrical con
nection and started. The raised writ
ing, actuating the .electric current,
causes a reproduction of the original
message in facsimile on the paper in
the recording instrument, which may
be hundreds of miles away from the
other. Upon the occasion of our visit
the two instruments, although in the
same room, were practically placed
200 miles apart The writing can be
reproduced in estlier blue, brown, red
or black, according to the chemical pre
paration of the paper, but always on a
white ground, and a number of copies
can be taken from the original In the
same way sketches, plans or drawings
may be faithfully transmitted; some
sketches were, in fact, accurately re
produced on the occasion of our visit.
Although the apparatus is perfect in
its action, it still has one drawback,
which was common to its predecessors
that of slowness of reproduction.

tion was broken up in tho Legislature
of 1872, all for the pUrtJose of feather

by that means, had tho appointment

The Senate was Democratic and if
that body refused to go into joint con
vention, none could be held. It was
supposed that one Democrat would
vote with the Republicans, and to pre
vent that, our informant was ap
proched by the "ring" as spokesman for
the Grover interest, and his influence
solicited to prevent this Senatcf from
voting with tho Republicans and so
create a majority. The) "ring man"
explained all the importance of the
matter. What Grover wanted to do,
who he would appoint and what was
to be made by it. Our informant told
him that he could guarantee tho break
ing up of the convention for one thous
and dollars. Six hundred was offered
and a bargain was made at that figure,
and a leading Democrat was called as
security, whose word was as good as
his bond, and got him to give his ver
bal pledge that in case the convention
was broken up the 600 should be
Our informant happened to know
that the Senator in question had con
eluded not to go into convention, had
just heard as much from his own
mouth, so he waited until the conspir
ators were out of sight and dropped in
to the Belvedere to take a quiet hand
at a game, of pedro, never troubling
himself about the anxieties of the Gro
ver dynasty any further. While he
was of course broken up as he had just
guaranteed it would, and the legisla
ture adjourned without ejecting Cap
itol Commissioners. Grover made the
appointments and the money was ex
pended in his interest, and it is thought
secured him one vote for the Senate
from Marion county. The ring Was
satisfied with the result" and the re
sponsible man who had gone security
for the 600 finding the next day that
the "ring" man had not, paid it, did
the square thing and handed our in
formant the coin, according to agree
ment The object of investigation should
be to find out how much besides this
S600 it cost Grover to break up that
convention. The lieople ought to
know where they found money to use
for such purposes, and a disclosure of
all the facts would convey a whole
some lesson if they could show the vo
ters of our State how they have been
habitually sold out and played by that
miserable ring of politicians.

T2IE CABINET .IAD THE CUIXE3E QC3-TIO.V.
Washington, January 3d-Secretary
Evarts to day brought the Chinese
question prominently to the attention,
of the President and other members of
the Cabinet, and'lpwas made a topic
for general interchange of views dur
ing the greater portion of the timo oc
cupied by the meeting. Evarts, after
referring to the passage of the resolu
tion by both houses of Congres, seven
months ago, recommending the Exec-jitive-ta
institute diplomatic negotia
tions on the" subject, explained that ac
tion ou the jfart of the State Depart
ment had been delayed to await the ar
rival of tho Chineso Embassy, whose
coming was expected last summer, it
being believed that timo would to
saved and the results more easily ac
complished by conducting the negotia
tions with them in person. This was
considered desirable, also, in view of
the fact that Minister Seward had al
ready been'granted a leave of absence
from Pekin to come to Washington.
Evarts next remarked tliat after the
Chinese Ministers' arrival it was deem
ed courteous and proper to allow them
a littlo time to become settled before
urging business upon their attention,
but although they have been informed
of our desire to open negotiations con
cerning Chinese immigration, and have
had ample opportunities to respond to
the verbal suggestions made to them
that our Government would be pleased
to receive somo expression of their
views upoii this subject, they have
manifested no disposition to discuss it,
and ho therefore thought the matter
should, without further ceremonious
waiting, bo explicitly brought to their
attention by a formal communication,
requiring official consideration and
official action. The President and all
other members of tho Cabinet pr esent,
Secretary Sherman being the only one
absent, agreed to this view, and were

done to our industrial interests, an
great danger threatened to our coun
try in many other ways, by the unre
stricted immigraticfn of the Chinese for
purposes of gain, and not to establish
homes and assimilate with our people
and our institutions, like other immi
grants. It was thereforo' unanimous
ly agreed that 'some cheek ought to be
imposed upon this influx, and ascertain
the provisions of the Burlingame treaty
standing in the way of Congressional
action on the subject, although it was
considered by Evarts and others that
Congress has a constitutional power to
override those obstacles. It was next
agreed on all hands to be highly desir
able to remove them if possible by di
plomatic negotiations; at all events, in
the opinion of the President and Cab
inet, this course" should be fairly tried.
Secretary Evarts was therefore author
ized and instructed to make the effort
with tho utmost possible emphasis and
urgency, and at tho earliest possible
date, frt the course of the of the dis
cussion some reference was made to the
political aspects of tho question, and it
was quite evident that the Administra
tion will privately have no objection
whatever to any action which the Re
publican members of tho House and
Senate may tatto secure for the Re
publican party an increaso of political
power by carrying through some mea
sure that would restrict Chinese immi
