A CARPET-BA6GEBGN THE WING.
Frankfort Springs, Jan. 17, ’73.
Editor Radical: When I first went to
Boston about three years ago, a graduate
of a prominent Eastern college learning
I was from Pennsylvania, asked me how
far it was to my nearest neighbor ?
Whether there were any Indiana . ; near
os? If our -Western colleges were not
about the same grade of a Massachusetts
high school ? He, spoke slightingly of
Pittsburgh, and said be supposed it was ft
bustling Western city of about twelve or
fifteen thousand inhabitants. I humored
bis whim and amused myself by drawing
on my memory for incidents of the early
history of our State, which I related as
transpiring to-day. accepted
as, literal facts, by the verdant collegian.
To many in the Bast country trip
through Pennsylvania is a journey of in
credible hardships, and not to be assumed
unless lor very pressing reasons. Several
of my friends opened their eyes in wide
amazement at my foolish idea of a four
weeks’ yaunt through New York, Penn
sylvania and Ohio, by land, /water and
rail, simply on a lecturing tour. Despite
their kind advice 1 started and here I am.
Although my life is heavily insured for
the benefit of my family, yet I did not
hesitate to ride fifteen miles on the Pan
Handle Railroad. 1 have taught myself
to believe that the stockholders of that
road would not bold their stock one day
that there was no accident, and the direc
tors and officers would not take a,com
fortable night’s rest, if at the tea table
they could not sum up a cheerful list of
“smash ups” culled from that day’s doings!
With some quaking I bought a ticket and
ventured. Four miles out from Steuben- :
ville we were delayed by an engine, .of a
freight train being thrown off the tmck?
A gang of men had taken up a nil,- tnd:
had left a boy of twelve to flag the train?
He forgot it and
shuddered as, I tb&b
doubtless have run
and I might have been now burrowing
my way out in the neighborhood of Pe
kin. I reached the place, by persever
ance. The mud was in fine condition,
but I triumphed over it, and arrived safe
Many of the citizens of Beaver county
are without doubt in great ignorance of
this place. It formerly was a favorite
summer resort on account of the mineral
springs in the vicinity, from which it
takes i's name. Owing to its being such
a distance from railroads, and that rail
road being the Pan Handle, the busy
crowd of pleasure seekers and mineral wa-'
ter guzzlers has been turned aside to more
pretentions resorts.. Yet there are still a
few who appreciate the advantage of
a country summer resort, and come here
to rusticate careless of hops, chignons,
crinoline, and satin slippers; more careful
of fresh air, early rising, thick boots, and
heavy water proofs. At present the prin
cipal feature of this place is the Frank
fort Springs Male and Female Academy
and Normal School, Prof. J. H. Veazy,
Principal, and Prof. W. F. Purdy, Assist
ant Principal. It is a bright, thriving
school of about sixty scholars- It is in
tended to be a Classical, Normal and Com
mercial, for both sexes. The Principal and
assistant are able and experienced teach
ers, and succeed in imparting thorough
Instruction in every branch they teach.
The Academy is a regularly incorporated
institution, and is doing a grand work in
preparing the young of the neighborhood
for college, and at the same time affording
practical instruction to those who intend
to teach. Considerable pride is
ed by tbe villagers in the school, and it is
well worthy of it. Young people
desire a thorough college preparation or
practical normal instruction would do
well to open a correspondence with the
Principal, J. H. Veazy.
This morning the mod has thickened
to a considerable crust through the kind
interference of Jack Frost, and it is try
ing to snow, but is making a miserable
failure. I must close and try to gather
together enough animal vitality to cn
dare an eight mile buggy ride over most
lunmerciful rough road, then, my fifteen
miles on the Pan Handle again. Don’t
be surprised if my next note is headed
"Pekin, or thereabouts,” as it all depends
whether that boy who is on duty finds a
rabbit track or hot just about train time.

Where he soon succeeded in obtain
ing! gbod position in a prominent mer
cantile house. Mr. Bigelow Was a widow-
was accompanied by his only
dau|liter, Bertha, then about eighteen
yeatpold, and endowed with remarkable
jperlbpal charms. Her father moved in
theHbest society of bis new home, and the
beauty and grace of hi* daughter were
notion# in attracting admirers. She treat
edtbempolitely, bnt,after all, coldly, until
oneidayshewas brought in contact with |
a dashlng French seaman, the First Lieu- 1
tenant on one of the Marseilles and Ori- <
ental tteamsbips. His name was Maurice
was but little over thirty
yearsWld; tall and handsome, an excellent
conversationalist, and the very man to
win. the good graces of a susceptible
young lariy. He became very intimate
with Misa Bertha Bigelow, and one day
he altbntsbed her father not a little by
askttghim for the'hand of his charming
datTghter. Mr.• Bigelow was at first in-
look favorably upon the suit, of
thC lfiamored sailor, the more so as bis
i seemed to reciprocate his affec-
a close Inquiry into the affair
of M. Maurice Kervel, con
;.vlS||b3 Mr.-Bigelow that he was not a
match for his daughter. He found
turning to depena u*. _
ver/ modest pay. The result of all this
was that he was requested to discontinue
his visits. Kervel left Mr. Bigelow mut
tering threats of revenge.
Miss Bertha seemed to care very little
about the breaking off of this flirtation
with her lover* and in 1868 she was mar
ried to a merchant named Jonvinet, a
man of means, with whom she lived hap
pily for a year. In June, 1869, her hus
band returned one evening to his delight
ful country residence, but to his astonish
ment, did not find his wife in her apart
ments. He questioned the servants about
the whereabouts of their mistress, and
they said that they had seen Mme. Jouvi
net walking in the garden a little before
dusk. M. Jonvinet searched every nook of
the garden and the neighborhood, but
not a trace of his beautiful wife was to be
found. He sent out messengers in all di
rections, but they returned without bring
ing any information. An examination of
the lady’s boudoir furnished no clue what
ever as to where she might have gone.
The husband passed a wretched night,
hoping every moment for bis wife’s Re
turn ; but morning dawned and she had
not yet come. He then sent for the police,
and several detectives began to look for
the missing lady. They were unable to
find any trace of her after a protracted
and patient search. Advertisements, of
fers of large rewards for information con
cerning her, remained without result.
Both the husband and father abandoned
all hopes of seeing her again, and an im
penetrable veil seemed to surround her
fate. Jonvinet, after mourning tor her
loss for eighteen months, applied to the
Court for an annullation of his marriage
with Miss IjMgelow, and he was waiting
( for a rendition 6f the decree, when, on
the 3d of November last, an event of the
most startling character occurred. He
was seated in his counting room in the
Rue Grande, poring over his ledger,
when the door was suddenly opehed, and
a veiled lady stepped in. She drew back
her veil, and displayed a bronzed face, the
features of which he knew only too well.
In the next moment he rushed into her
arms, exclaiming, “Bertha t Bertha!” It
was Kis long-lost wife.
The explanations she gave him while
they sat locked in each other’s arms, about
her sudden and long absence, were so
strange that even the chroniquer of the
Marseilles Nouvdiste, to whose pen we are
indebted for all these particulars, confess
ed he bad rarely met with anything more
romantic in his long Journalistic career.
Mme. Jonvinet stated that on the even
ing! when she had been parted from her
; husband she had gone into the garden to
; breathe * little fresh air. All of a snddeoi
; she had been seized by several men,--who
rtisbed from behind a shrub. In an in
stant they had blindfolded and gagged
her, and carried her to a carriage, which
rapidly drove off with her. Then she
had become unconscious, and when she
awoke again, she found herself in the
cabin of a ship, which was rocking in the
waves. To her dismay, Maurice Kervel
was the first who entered her cabin. He
told her coolly that he had tong ago left the
naval service of France, and was now
master of a bark In the Levant trade.
She then implored him to restore her to
liberty, which be refused, informing her
at the same time that she would hence
forth have to live with him at his villa in
the environs of Alexandria; and be
threatened to kill her in case she attempt
ed to escape. Her prayers, her tears, her
despair, were unavailing, and, trusting to
meet by and-by with an- opportunity to
communicate with her folks, she followed
Kervel to Alexandria. The house to
which he took her; there was situated
about three miles from the city sit was
welt furnished, and she was well treated,
except that she was not allowed to leave
the place. A very strict surveillance was
kept over her by the servants, whose lan
guage she was unable to understand. She
began already to despair, when Eervel
one day told her she must go with him up
the Nile. Two days afterward he brought
her to the country place of a wealthy
Egyptian, Balan Bey, and to her horror,
she found that Kervel had ceded her to
him, and that she was henceforth to be
the inmate of an Oriental harem, filled
with Egyptian and Abyssinian women,
who looked with decided aversion upon
the fair new-comer. For four months she
endured alt the horrors of this life, when
shewas, one day introduced,by Balan Bey
to an elderly man, who was no other than
Nuber Pascba, a noted Egyptian diplo*
| matist, and conversant with the French
I language. She confided herself to him,
and he immediately promised to restore
her to her husband. A few days after-
extradition the pari bf.the
Egyptian > Eervel is said to
be quite a favorite of the. Khedive's, and
a man of the%osl desperate cbpacter.
From several Gubernatorial messages,
recently delivered, lays the New York
Times, we take the following figures for
the basis of comparison in regard to
the proportionate burden of the debts
of various Eastern and North-western
The net funded debt of the State of New
York is $25,386,725. According to the
censue of 1870, the population of the
State was 4,382, 759, so th v at the State debt
represents a burden of $5 79 for each indi
vidua), man, woman, and child, of our
The State of Pennsylvania has a debt of
$16,521,039, which, on ,a population of
3,521,769, xepresents a burden per head of
The net funded debt of the State of
Ohio amounts to $8,583,546. For a popu
lation of 3,665,360 this represents a bur
den of $3 23 per head.
The State of Wisconsin has a debt of
$2,253,037, which for a population of 1,-
054,670 is a burden of $3 10 per head.
The State of Michigan has a debt of $l,-
764.293, which for a population o'f 1,184,-
059 is a burden of $1 48 per head.
The State of Nevada has a debt of $379,-
246, which for a population of 43,491 is a
bufden of $8 91 per head.
it will thus be seen, that, exclusive of
the New England and Southern States,
the most populous and the least populous
State in the Union appear to keep the
lead in the relative burden of their in
debtedness. The State of Illinois has,
practically, no debt at all; nor has the
State of lowa. The debt of the State of
Indiana is a little within four millions of
dollars, and represents a per capita" bur
den of $3 34.
Proposed Postal Chances.
The House Committee on Postofflces
and Post Roads on Friday morning decid
ed to proceed with the preparation of the
bill requiring the prepayment of all news
paper postage, and reducing letter post
age to two cents. Postmaster General
Creeswell was in consultation with the
Committee, lavoring both the proposed
changes in 'the law.
The Committee on Postoffices w ill have
a bill for the prepayment of
matter, and the reduction of letter post
age to two cents, ready next week, and
are unanimous in support of it.
• The gradual reduction of foreign letter
postage from twenty-four cents to six
has finally resulted in surplus re-
ceipts over expenditures, aud this, with
other data, has convinced the Committee
and Mr. Cresswell that the two cent rate
on our own letters will increase th&re
ceipts. Bast year printed matter brought
in only $(985,000. Letter postage were
$19,354,000i The printed matter weighed *
seventy times as much as the letters. The
number of daily newspapers circulated in
the country is 800,000,000 annually j week
lies, 600*000,000, and monthlies, 100,000,-
000. From thirty to sixty-five tons daily
are sent out of New York alone three
days of the week. While the Department
should have received on printed matter
transported $3,290,000, it aid actually re
ceive but $980,000, on accoant of the
failure to collect postages. It is thought
the matter can be reached by tbje prepay
ment plan in contemplation. To make
prepayment possible at large, publication
offices are to have an agent to print the
stamp of prepayment upon the whole edi
tion sent. This,' however* is hot definite
ly decided. Mr. Farnsworth, chairman,
is the author of the bill, and is now en
gaged in putting it in final shape.

The Harrisburg =. State Journal thus
refers to Senator Rutan :
“Senator Rutan gave notice the other
day that he intended to object hereafter
to all suspension of the rules to pass bills,
and insist that the business of legislation
shall take its course impartially, accord
ing to the rules laid down for the govern
ment of Houses. If Senator Rutan
strictly adheres to bis resolution on the
subject—and we believe he will, as he is a
man of great determination—he will suc
ceed in accomplishing much good. The
practice of suspending the rules is the
source of nearly all the bad legislation
which has so long outraged the public and
defied wishes of constituencies. In.
this manner measures are rushed -through
the Legislature without discussion. Sen
ators and Representatives being deprived
of the opportunity to do their duty in ex
amining subjects on which they are called
to vote. Let Senator Rutan presist in
his proposed course, and be will do the
people a service not ofle|i accomplished
by an individual legislator. ■-
“Another good resolution would be to
insist on the printing of all bills before
they are allowed to pass second reading.
"Every bill should be printed and placed
upon the files of Senators and Represen
tatives, and no bill allowed to pass which
is not thus printed. Those who have
private legislations in charge have ample
time to prepare it,so that it can be printed.
If they do not do this, their business
ought to be thrown out."
