It is jrenerally supposed that the bones of Christopher Colum bus, the great explorer, are at Havana, in the island of Cuba, but recent investigations have brought to light the fact that it was Columbus son who was re moved there. Let us go back to the first resting-place of Columbus, for death did not end his voyages. He died in 150G in Valladolid. north-central part ef Spain, where lie was buried. Then he was re moved farther south to Seville, and a handsome monument erect ed by Ferdinand and Isabella; on it were engraved these werds: To Castile and Leon Colon pave a new world." Columbus had made a request in his will that he should be buried in his beloved Hispaniola; and now this idea was brought forward and his remains deposited in the cathe dral of Santo Domingo, Hayti Here also his son Diego and grand son Luis were interred. At the close of the war between France and Spain, in 1 79", it was stipulated that Spain should cede to the French "all the Spanish part of the island of Sun to Do jningo,' or Ha-ti. Accordingly Columbus was once more as then thought exhumed and conveyed Ns, to Havana with great pomp and ceremony. And a slab which marks the plnee has engraved in Spanish, "Oil. KM inee.

Learned scholars are thinking- of erecting a monument which should belong to the world, ami not limited to the gratification of local or national pride. But such things move slowly, and perhaps it will never be accomplished. Here is a funny item from the New York Pest: "A geutlemnii the other evening objected to playing cards with a lady, because, he said, she had such a winning way about her.

LIVINGS AT LIMA. Some Curious Effects of the Protrac ted War with Chili. Inm the ew Yrk miu. A gentleman who has just arriv ed in this city from Lima told a Sun reporter yesterday of the curi ous effect that the war has produced upow the price of commodities in I'eru. The paper currency of the country has depreciated to such a degroe that it takes $11 of that liHMiey to buy one of gold; and many articles leing purchasable only with gold coin or its. equiva lent, their cost has been in conse quence enormously increasea. This is the case with all articles sold by the foreign merchants of the country, they have determined to conduct tleir business only upon a coin basis. A pair of slaves, for instance, will cost all the way from S2." to SCO or $?(). The gentleman who imparted this infor mation said that the passage for himself and his wife, from Callao to New York, cost 8,000 in Peru vian currency. Ordinarily the pas sage would cost In gold, for two persons, something over 700. With the price of native product-., however, and with the wages of labor, rents, and hotel and res taurant charges, the case is differ ent. "While these have advanced somewhat, the increase has been more trifling in comparison with the depreciation In the currency. Board at the best hotels is not over S-i a day in paper, restaurant charges are the same in propor tion, and rents have advanced but sliirhtlv. The result of this singu lar disturbance in the equilibrium of prices is a condition of things decidedly favorable to the for eign mercantile community and to strangers well provided with coin. A shopkeeper will sell a hat for 0 in paper, and get two weeks board for the same amount at a good hotel, or he will seil a 50 watch for "5), and pay a year's rent of a good house with it. The experience of a party of oflicers of the United States war vessel Lackawanna, who took an excellent dinner shortly after their arrival at the best restaurant in Lima, was mentioned in illustra tion of this peculiar discrepancy. There were six in the party, and j they had, besides a very good din ner, several bottles of wine. The bill for the wliolc entertainment was 00 p"er, which they ettled by aying less tlian $0 in gold. The wine alone would liave cost more than tliat in New York. The native jmpulation are com pelled to yield to the necessity of the situation, and accept the pa per currency without changing their prices in proportion to the market value of the money, but tlie foreign population refuse to do so. A foreigner going to Lima now with little gold could live comfortably for a small outlay. He could board at a first-class lotel for thirty-five cents a day, hire a horse for the same amount, a servant for that much a week, and rent a house for $3 to 4 a month. The Peruvian bouse owners who remain in Lima can get along for the present, since if their rents are cut down so is the cost of food and service; but those who have tjuit the country in con sequence of the Chilian invasion dn not fare so well, with their in come, reckoned by the gold standard, reduced to about one- tenth of whnt they were a vear or two ajo.

Miss Susie 1? was desirous of becoming an acttcs. Tliough not over seventeen summers, she had for years jmst been or opinion that she possessed histrionic talent slightly inferior only to that of the illustrious Bernhardt. About a year ago she applied to Manager for a then vacant situation, deemed by the profes sion to be scarcely above that of a dresser. Tlie manager at first en deavored to dissuade her from en tering a stage career, but subse quently, at the opening of the present season, gave her a posi tion, the arduous duties of which, he imagined, would create in Miss Susie's mind a distaste for the theatrical life. In this the clever manager was mistaken. The young lady's ambi tion was proof against the call boy's sneers, and the super's jokes. "With her talent was its own fruition. She had neither the mental or physical ability to quali fy her for any prominent role, but out of the ineffable courtesy the manager allowed her to retain her situation some six or seven weeks. By this time the jokes of the dif ferent members of the stock com pany and tlni gibes of the under lings had become so intolerable that the lady amateur expressed her complaints. They were re ceived in a becoming spirit by the power that is. ami remedied by an intimation that owing to the dul ness of the season the complaint's services would be no longer re quired. Had the matter ended here ail would have been well, but as he saw a small rivulet coursing down the girl's face the manager added he would probably be able to employ her again in a short time. The maiden wiped her eyes, picked up her skirts and left. For a month no one heard of her. At the end of the month she tripped into the manager's office and reminded him of his promise. That functionary was busy, and rashly told her to call again. To his great consternation and the in- s- tense amusement of his friends, she did call again. iut twice only. ii,t- fiiir.nt tKtf. tituAt i.i! rA i v.,.v, ....v ...,, ,v-i several weeks. She became a ventablo I;urboMr. lc haunted the stage and bored the aetoi-s. She was the otic great, constant trouble of the manager's life. Some days ng a gentleman, who had become somewhat familiar with tle situation, suggested to Chief Mf-Dotfougli the advisability of- detailing a detective to deter mine whether the lady was not mentally unbalanced. The detec tive reported a mania for the stage,. and encouraged by liope of reward, laid a plan to cure the patient. He spent much time in forming the lady's acquaintance. lie gained het confidciiee. Jle told her tales of the French drama, where he had figured as the detective of the play, and told her of the stage beauties and leadinjr artistes with out number. He told her of girls that had aspired to histrionic fame and who, because not possessing such wealth of talent as she was endowed with, had drifted to a lower social josition. lie enlisted her sympathy in behalf of these dramatic wrecks, and undertook to show her tlie life of those whom the stage, as he said, had made members of the under world. He' took her to .several variety per- foriuances, the better mes first, the worst ones last, and thou by etsy gnidntiows Jw reached house where the srirls were deddediy ?.',.,, or' disreputable. At each plnee tbey we toUl by j girls, who liad been previously s thoroughly drilled by the detec tive, sad stories of their fall from grace, due to their pitssiou for the tinsel ami glare of the stage. The ruse was successful. As the de tective led her out of the last Ikhisc, the girl with eyes full of tears tremulously but earnestly framed her renunciation of all de sire to be an actress or a star. As tlai blaze of the footlights burned dimmer she saw higher the light of iKine. She resolved not to be her own temptation, and determined to lead a humble if necessary, but at all hazards a pure life. The detective's report concludes with a statement that although to effect his task he had wrongfully slander ed the stage in general, he had re lieved the theatre of a serious bore, and perhaps saYed the virtue of a freakish girl.
