HON. A. K. McCLURE, Philadelphia, Solicitor. ,
The Chinese Government having (through the
Hon. Anson Burlingaine) concerted to this Com
pany the privilege of connecting the great sea
ports of the Krnpire by submarine electric tele
graph cable, we propose commencing operations
in China, and laying down a line of nine hundred
miles at once, between the following ports, viz :
Hang Chean 1,200.000
These ports have a foreign commerce of $900,-
000 000. and an enormous domestic trade, besides
which we have the immense internal commerce of
the Empire, radiating from these points, through
its canals and navigable rivers.
The cable being laid, this company proposes
erecting laud lines, and establishing a speedy and
trustworthy means of communication, which must
command there, as everywhere else, the commu
nications of the Governuiont, of business, and of
social life especially in China. She has no postal
system, and her only means now ofcommuuicating
information is by couriers on land, and by steam
ers on water.
The Western World know 3 that China is a very
large country, in the main densely peopled ; but
few yet realize that she contain; more than a third
of the human race. The latest returns made to
her central authorities for taxing purposes by the
local magistrate make her population Four hun
dred and Fourteen millions , and this is more
likely to bo under than over the actual aggregate.
Nearly all of these, who are over ten years old,
not only can but do read and write. Her civili
zation is peculiar, but her literature is as exten
sive as that of Europe. China is a land of teach
ers and traders; and the latter are exceedingly
quick to avail themselves of every proffered facili
ty for procuring early information. It is observed
in California that the Chinese make great use of
the telegraph, though it there transmits messages
in English alone. To-day great numbers of fleet
steamers are owned by Chinese merchants, and
used by them exclusively for the transmission of
early intelligence If the telegraph we propose
connecting all their great seaports, were now in
existence, it is believed that its business would
pay the cost within the first two years of its suc
cessful operation, and would steadily increase

FIERCE EIGHT: TWO WOMEN EN
GAGE IN A BLOODY COMBAT
IN TENNESSEE: ONE OL
THEM HI 1.1.ED.
Within seven miles of Dresden, in
Weakly county, Tenn., lives an exten
sive planter named Gobert. lie has
one son, a lad of about twenty, with
long flaxen hair and cowhide hoots.
Gobert employs several colored people
to work his land. Among those em
ployed were two yellowish girls, of
rather prepossessing appearance.—
Young Gobert became familiar with
both, to whom he gave slight tokens
of his peculiar regard from time to
time, but managed to keep each other
in the dark with regard to his inter
course with the other until last week.
An accident led to the full knowl
edge of his faithlessness, and both girls
became violently enraged, not so much,
however, against the betrayer as a
gainst each other. At tirst they had
a slight tight; some hair was torn up
by the roots, and cuts about the face
given on both sides, but the young gal
lant parted them before any serious
damage was done. The fire ofjealousy,
however raged in the. bosoms of the
two girls to such an extent that they
silently and mutually resolved each to
be the death of the other. On Friday,
when the family had gone to Dresden
to do business, the girls met in the
yard, one an outdoor servant and one
an Indoor servant. Both were armed
with heavy sticks. The battle be-
gan at once. According to the testi
mony of the surviving lady, the con
test lasted fifteen minutes, during
which they frequently clinched, knock
ed each other down, rolled over, bit
and scratched terrifically. Sometimes
the sticks would be dropped for fisticuf
fing, and presently resumed again.
The survivor, Jane, has an arm bro
ken, an ear bit off, half her hair gone,
and four or five contusions about the
head and shoulders, and face scratched
all over. The other girl, Kate, up to
the moment of receiving the fatal
stroke, appeared to have the best of
the fight, as she bears no evidence of

and the loss of two front teeth, which
were rained down her throat by the
point of the enemy's stick. Immedi
ately that Jane's arm was broken at
the elbow, she grasped her stick in the
left hand, and, getting a clear and o
pen stroke swung her weapon round,
and came home on Kate's neck with
such force that the girl dropped down,
and never uttered a cry nor moved a
limb—her neck was broken. Jane took
to flight at once, and keeping in the
woods as much as possible, did not
stop until she fell exhausted, about
seven miles from the scene of con
flict, near Westley's farm house, where
she was picked up by a colored employ
ee of the latter establishment. When
the family came home they found
Kate cold and stiff in the yard where
the fight took place, with every indi
cation of a fearful battle having been
fought. The Amazonian duelist was
brought to Dresden, where she confess
ed the whole tiling. Young Gobert

A KO.HA.MK LOVE STORY.
The Count de St. Croix, belonging
to one of the noblest families in France,
became engaged after a long courtship
to a lady his equal in position and for
tune, and famous for her beauty.
Shortly after the happy day was ap
pointed which was to render two lov
ing hearts one, the Count was ordered
immediately to the siege of Sebasto
pol; so he girded 011 his sabre, and at
the head of his regiment marched to
the battle-field. During the Count's
absence it happened that his beautiful
affianced had the small-pox ; afer hov
ering between life and death she recov
ered, but found her beauty hopelessly
lost. The disease had assumed in her
case the most virulent character, and
left her not only disfigured but seamed
and scarred to such an extent that she
became hideous to herself, and resolv
ed to pass the remainder of her days
in the strictest seclusion.
A year passed away, when one day
the Count, immediately upon his re
turn to France, accompanied by his
valet, presented himself at the resi
dence of his betrothed, and solicited an
interview. This was refused. He,
however, with the persistence of a lov
er, pressed his suit, and finally the la
dy made her appearance, closely muf
fled in a veil. At the sound of her
voice the Count rushed forward to em
brace her, but stepping aside she then
told him the story of her sorrow, and
burst into tears. A heavenly smile
broke over the Count's handsome feat
ures, as raising his hand above he ex
claimed: "It is God's work! I am
It was even so. When gallantly
leading his regiment to attack, a can
non ball passed so closely to his eyes
that, while it left their expression un
changed, and his countenance unmark
ed, it robbed him forever of sight. It
is almost unnecessary to add that their
marriage was shortly after solemnized.
It is said that, at this day, may often be
seen at the Emperor's receptions an
officer leaning upon the arm of a lady
closely veiled, and they seem to be at

was known by the entire congregation
to be greatly in want of a husband, was
praying with great fervency. "Oh,
Lord, thou knowest what is the desire
ol my heart," she exclaimed. "A

ry broad accent. It was wicked, but
we are sure several grave members
smiled on the occasion.

THE DTTCXKAKO'G CASE.
Some months ago, says an exchange,
a gentleman advertised that he had
discovered a sure specific for the cure
of drunkenness. He would not di
vulge the secret of what compounds
he used, but furnished the medicine at
so much per bottle. He did not have
so many applicants for his cure as he
expected, considering the extent of
the disease. In fact the more malig
nant cases did not seem anxious for re
lief. They rather enjoy the malady.
A few, however, plaeed themselves un
der treatment, and some were cured—
whether by taking the medicine or by
not taking strong drinks we are not
prepared to say. One of the cured ones
had faith in the medicine, rigidly car
ried out the directions of the doctor,
and now lias not the least taste for in
toxicating drinks; whereas, one year
ago lie was an inebriate, and could not
get along with less than a pint to a
quart ol whisky per day.
He said that, at some trouble and ex
pense, he had procured the receipt for
the preparation of the medicine, which
he had published for the benefit of suf
fering humanity. It is as follows:
Sulphate of iron, five grains; pepper
mint water, eleven drachms; spirit of
nutmeg, one drachm, twice a day. This
preparation acts as a tonic and a stirn
lent, and so partially supplies the
place of the accustomed liqour, and
prevents that absolute physical pros
tration that follows the sudden break
ing off from the use of stimulating
drinks. It is to be taken in quantities
equal to an ordinary dram andasoften
as the desire for a dram returns. Any
druggest can prepare the prescription.
It is :aid this preparation will soon re
move all longing for intoxicating
drinks. Try it, you who honestly
wish to break away from a habit which
is hurrying you to a drunkard'sgrave.
JUST THE SAME.—Some years ago
(so the story goes), a farmer living not
a thousand miles from New York,
gave one of his sons some money, and
told him to go out West and remain
two years ; at the end of which time,
if he would return to a specified place,
one of his brothers would meet him.
The young man went, and returned
and met his brother according to ap
pointment, although no communica
tion had taken place between them
duriJJJg the time. While going home
ward together, the wanderer, after re
lating some of his adventures, inquir
ed whether anything had happened
since he had left home.
"No, not a single thing," replied the
other, "everything is just the same as
when you left, except the old crow
"Indeed," said the wanderer, "and
is the old crow dead? What killed
"Why he ate too much meat when
the matched horses died."
"Good gracious! are the matched
horses dead? What killed them?"
"Well you see when the house and
barn was burned, they overdid them
selves in hauling water."
"Good gracious! are the house and
barn burned down? How did it hap
"Well, you see, when daddy died,
they were carrying lights about, and
"Good gracious! and is daddy dead ?
"What was the matter with him?"
"Well, you see, when Sal ran away
and got married against daddy's wish
es, he just pined away and died."
"Good gracious! so nothing has hap
pened since I've been away ?"
"No, everything is just the same."
How SHE KNEW.—Two young mis
ses discussing the qualities of some
your.g gentleman were overheard to
"Well, 1 like Charley, but he is a
little girlish ; he hasn't got the least
bit of a beard."
"I say Charley has got a beard, but
he shaves it off."
"No, he hasn't either, any more
than I have."
"I say he has, too, and I know it,
for it pricked my cheek."
That's how she knew.
"llo.w many children have you ?"
asked a gentleman of one of his labor
ers, looking around in surprise upon
"Better than a dozen , sir."
"I only make out eleven," said the
"Faith, an' isn't that better than a
dozen, sir, when one has to feed 'em?"
'SISTEK,' said one of the brethern at
a love feast, are you happy?' 'Yes,
deacon, I feel as though I was in Beel
zebub's bosom !' 'Not in Beelzebub's
bosom!' Well, someof the patriarchs,
I don't care which.'

other day, driving a "porker," hold

what he was doing, replied that he
