A conscience stricken Paltimorean
contributed SIOO to tho conscience
fund of the treasury department.
If all the radicals who have plund
ered the government during the last
twelve years were to become con
science stricken, what a blessing it
would Ik for the country, enough of
funds would find their way back into
the treasury, from which they were
stolen, to pay off" the national debt.
The Legislature.
A correspondent of the Reaver Ju
dical, in his Harrisburg gossip says
that Senate and House will be organ
itcd as follows.
Hon. George H. Anderson, of Pitts
burg, will be elected Speaker of the
Senate, and Hon. Russell Krrett,
Clerk. Anderson was the Republican
nominee last Spring, and was defeated
by Col. M'Clura. lion W .Elliott will
be re-elected Speaker, for the Speak
er, of the House does not become Gov
ernor in case of death or resignation,
aud is selected at the meetiug of the
Legislature. Selfridge and Shurlock
ot vour ceunty, are candidates lor
Clerk, and the contest will be close. "
The same writer makes up a list of
candidates for the United Slates feen
atorship, in case Geo. Cameron de
clines to be a candidate. It includes
lion. 11. Bucher Swope, Judge Sco

and a host of others. There will be
no State Treasurer to elect this winter
Mackev holding over until a law is
passed providing for an election by the
people in accordance with the amend
ment to the constitution just adopted.
It is fortuuate that it is so.
He also says Hon. Wm. Meredith,
Isaac Hazlehurst, Col. Wm. B. Mann,
of Philadelphia: Hon. Wm. Arm

The Power to Seixe Property for
School Purposes,
Last Monday ISth, in the Supreme
Court Judge Agnew delivered the
opinion of the Court in the case of F.
J. Feme vs. the School Directors of
the Sixth ward, Allegheny, in which
the judgement of the Court below was
a writ of error to the Court of Com
mon Pleas of county, and the actioD
was brought to determine whether
School Directors have the right to en
ter upon improved property for school
purposes* Feme owned a dwelling
house adjoining the school property in
the Sixth ward, and the Board having
failed to negotiate with the owner for
it had viewers appointed, and then it
took possession of it for school purpo
ses. The case was brought in the
Court of Common Pleas to recover the
property, and a verdict for defendents
was rendered. The case was then car
ried up to the Supreme Court and the
directors again sustained.
South Carolina.
ELLIOTT, the negro candidate for
United Statee senator in South Caro
lina, iudignantlv denies the report
that he has withdrawn. In a letter to
one of the newspapers of that state he
"I am a candidate for the poeition
of United States senator from this
state, and shall remain a candidate
until the final vote shall have been
reached by the general assembly*
Underlying my candidacy is a ques
tion of principle, right, and justice,
which lam determined, so far as I
am able, to have asserted, I am de
termined to have the anestion at once
settled as to whether the lack of mon
ey shall exclude men from office, or
whether those qualities alone which
can conscientiously appeal to the
higher sensibilities of oar manhood
shall prevail. My every effort shall
be to have the whole of the people of
this state, as well as of the entire
country, understand whether or not
the performance of the pledges recent
ly made by the republican p*rtf shall
be foreshadowed by the blighting in
fluence of a purchased seat in the sen
ate of the nation.
The negroes are in the majority in
both houses, and they can elect one of
their own color, unless, money induces
them to discard color. J. J. Patter
son, very recently from Juniata coun
ty, is also a candidate, and has plenty
of money to tempt the black members.
It is supposed that the democrats will
vote for Elliott.
—-FlßE.— Again we have tfio 'great ca
lamity of Chicago. October, 1(171, repeated
at Boston, November. 1872, and it is with
uleasuie that we herewith annex a partial
list of the old and reliable Insurance Com
panies, that Tiave successfully passed
through these liery ordeals. Although
having heavy losses, they have their capi
tal unimpaired

sylvania Fire, of Philadelphia, established
1825, Chicago losses nothing, Boston losses
$300,000, being paid. After paying Bos
ton losses, assets $1,000,000. N lagara, of
New York, established, 1850, Chicago loss
es $256,000, Boston losses, $300,000, being
paid. After paying Boston losses, assets
$1,000,000. National Fire & Marine In

American Ins. Co., of N, Y., Assettc-s,
$1,272,000, Boston losses, 109,000 Orient,
of Hartford, Conn. Assetts, $600,000
Boston losses, $170,000. The losses at Bos
ton are now being paid as fast as adjusted.
The above well known companies have
therefore fully sustained their positions in
the iront rank of first class companies.
The lessons learned by the insuring pub
lic, in the bitter experience of Chicago and
Boston, has certainly taught them to ap
preciate the value of Policies in such reli
able companies as those, which are all rep
resented at this Agency.

—The horse disease has disappear
ed from Pittsburg.
The election returns begin to pre
tent a curious subject for political i
speculation. It seems likely to turn
out that Gen. Grant, notwithstanding
his overwhelming majority, really re-,
ceivcd fewer votes ill l8 r 72 than in j
1868. Tho negro vote, being now !
first fully counted iti a Presidential
olectiou, is of course excluded from
the comparison.
The population of the United
States, must have increased nearly
three millions, in the last four years;
and the ftill vote which** Presidential
election draws out should naturally
show an increase of not loss than eight
per cent over the vote of 1868. If
Gen. Grant were only relatively as
strong as in 1868, his vote then should
be eight per cent heavier. Put his
majorities are so much increased iu
the ditlcrent slates, aud he makes so
nearly a clean sweep i f the states, that
his aggregate vqto would seem sure to
be vastly greater. Yet the returns
tell a curiously different story.
In his own state of Illinois, for ex
ample, ho has actually fewer vote#
than were cast for him in 1868. Tho
official returns are not yet all in, but
those received all point in that direc
tion. In New Hampshire, he had 88
191 voter sin 18t8 : iu 1872 he had
but 37,235. In Vermont, he hail 44,-
167 in 1868; in 1842, he has about
41,475. In Connecticut, ho had 50,086
in 1868 ; in 1872 he had 50,699.
Pennsylvania affords still more sug
gestive figures. In 1860, it gave Lin
coln 268,030 votes. In 1864, it gave
him 296,391. In 1868, it gave in the
October election 331,416 for the Re
publican State ticket, and a month la
ter, 342.280 for Graut. Instead of in
creasing about 30,000, as wonld have
been uatural if the parties had remain
ed about relatively the same, the vote
of Hartranft only rose in 1872 to
353.557, while the vote for Graut ac
tually fell ofl'in November to 349,589
or barely seven thousand more thau
in 1868. And yet, with this falling
off in his vote, Grant's majority was
nevertheless swelled to over a hun
dred thousand more thau llartranft-.
In New York the returns do not
yet permit an accurate statement.
Gen. Grant's vote is probably -light
ly heavier than iu 1868, but by no
means up to the uatural increase. He
gains iu the cities, (where the Tweed
and O'Brien regime in 1868 stuffed
ballot-boxes,) aud falls off'slightly in
the rural couuties. New-Jersey alone
appears to show a gain equal to the
natural increase.
Fewer people voting for him, and
Jet a bigger majority,—that seems to
avo been the rule iu (leu. Grant's
last election. We do not believe that
the signiticant fact will be lost, either
upon the President himself, or upon
the shrewd ami able men who have
directed his canvass. —Tribune.
Valuable Meteorological Discov-
From Washington comes the intel
ligence that the researches of the sig
nal office have just been rewarded
with a beautiful and highly impor
tant meteorological discovery on the
coast of England. From time im
memorial the phenomenon of the great
November atmospheric wave has been
the speculation of scientists and sea
men, but Sir John Herschel aud oth
ers have supposed it was confined to
England and western Europe, which
it reached from the south Atlantic,
and over which it rolls in long contin
ued undulations from October until
January, constituting an important
element in the phenomenal character
(of European winters. Ou the 12lh of
November, a similar atmospheric
wave began to break over the shores
of Oregon and British Columbia, as
shown by the weather telegrams. By
the evening of the 13th, it had spread
over nearly all the Pacific states and
the territories of Utah and Nevada,
and at midnight was passing through
the passes of the Rocky mountains.
On Thursday, the 1-llh, it descended
upon Colorado, Nebraska, Kansas aud
Indian territory. On Friday morn
ing it extended, in apparently unbro
ken magnitude and magnificence, from
Oregon and Washington territory
eastward through the great trough or
depression of the Rocky mountains'
back-bone, in Idaho ami Montana,
and stretched thence to tho lower
Missouri and lower Mississippi valleys
and over the western shores of the
Mexican gulf.
This discovery will enable rnetror
ologists to anticipate by many days
the approach of winter as it advances
from the Pacific coast eastward in the
.great current of westerly winds. It
serves to clear up the old mystery of
American winter storms, showing that
they originated in the Rocky moun
tains, against whose cold and loftiest
summits in Nevada, Utah and Color
rado, and Southern Wyoming, the va
por laden air of this wave is now soon
to be forty-first parallel. As this vast
aerial wave Crossing from the warm
Pacific is probably like the English
wave cumbered in successive undula
tions for two or three months, it may
assist in explaining the comparative
high temperature and light precipita
tion in winter along Puget'e sound and
Paris, November 14. —The affairs
ofthe French government arc again
threatening, and are likely to become
complicated by the movement contem
plated by the opposition party in the
assembly. The monarchists have be
come considerably agitated over the
annual address of Thiers, read ou tha
reassembling, yesterday. They pro
posed a combined movement ou the
part of tbo members in the assembly
opposed to the preseut policy of the
administration for the adoption of an
address to be promulgated in oposiliou
to the message of Thiers, declaring
that "France is not repuolican in the
present form of the government."

Fire Conservatives are absent, but will

Interesting Insurance Case.
An interesting case growing out of a fira
in Homcrville hat recently been decided
by tho Massachusetts Supreme Court A
building belonging to the Metallic Com
pression Casting Company was on fire.
The engines wore at work puling it out
having their hose stretched across the
track of the Filching Railroad Company.
A freight train came along and severed tho
hose, and the buildihg and tho contents
wero burned. The owners sued the rail
road company to recover the loss. The
principal questions involved in the case
was whether the hose was rightfully put
across the track, and whether the loss by
the fire was not so closely connected with
the negligent act of the company as to pro
cludo n recovery by the plaintiffs. The
.Supreme Ceurt decides that the negligent
act of tho company was a direct and effi
cient cause of the loss.
On Sunday last the people of Switzer
land celebrated the five hundred and sixty
fifth anniversary of their independence, an
occasion which doubtless inspired every
Bwitzor with.lho most lively emotion* cf
patriotic prido. And there is good reason
why tho citizens of that sturdy littlo re
public—which, surrounded by somo of tbr
most powerful and despolicgovernments of
the world, has maintained its freedom for
nearly six 'centuries in defiance of aisaults
from every quarter—should cherish pride
in such nationality.
Jay Gould has been arrested en a war

charge of robbing tho troasury of tho Krie

After having a good night's sleep in a
foreign land, the Brat object my eyes be
held in the morning, was the Suspension
1 bridge, which span# the "river about two
mile* below the falls and i# a nobla and
stupendous structure. It was built by J
A. Koebling. of Trpnlon, N. J., and was
begun in #862. This bridge is of cnor-t
mous strength and forms a communication
between Cnnada nnd America, over
which the trains of the Great Western and j
the Naw York Central K. K , pass over
> without causing the slightest vibration
The cost of iu construction wai $600,<100: I
tho first Engine crossed it on the Bth of j
March, IW#>. Tho road for carriages is
suspended 28 feet bolow tho railway line
The hightof the towers on the American
side is 88 feet, those on the Canada is 78!
feet high ; this bridge is 800 feet long, 24
feet wide, and 260 feet above the river, and;
suspended on four mighty cabels 101 iach
es in diameter. From this bridge our ere*!
first beheld the falls of Niagara. After)
1 crossing over on the roadway we retraced
our steps on top ef the bridge to the Cana
da side and strolled down the banks of the
river to the Whirlpool, about three mile*
below the falla, whore tho river Ukos an;
abrupt turn and shoots with great violence
against the cliff on the Canada side form-;
ing tho mighty whirlpool. The scenery!
around this oaldron is exceedingly milo
nnd picturesque, W c tupn return to th
bridge and up along the banks of Ibis
rushing, foaming, looking stream, till we
reach the falls, where wo #Und in amaxe
mcnt and are swallowed up in our own in
significance when beholding there the
mighty worka of Nature. Tho falls of
Niagara may Justly bo c assed among the
wonders of tho world. Tbsy are trully the
prido of America, and their grandeur, mag
nitude and magnificence, are well known
to all tho civilised world-
If the reader will bear with me a little,
I will hero give you a short description of
Niagara Fall*, Saiporfoct though it may
be :The great lakes of North AmericaSupe
rior—M ichigan—Huron and Erie,pour the
flood of their nccummulatcd waters into
lake Ontario, through a channel of about
36 miles in length called the Michigan riv
ar. Twenty two miles below its commence
ment at lake Erie, occur the famous falls
of Niagara. The ;American falls are 000
feet wide by 164 feel high. Tho Horse
shoe or Canadian fall la 2000 feet wide and
169 feet high. Over thismagnificont preci
pice the Irresistible tide rushes at the rate
of 100 millions tons of water every hour
as computed by scientific men. The tola
descent from lake Erie to Ontario is 334
feet The falls of X iagre were first seen i
by a white man nearly two hundred years i
ago , father Hennepin, a French Jesuit i
missionary, first saw them when on nucx- <
{.edition <>Y discovery in the year 1678. It I
was not till lcamain tabic rock i
on the face of the bright green watar, that i
it cam* upon me in its full might and maj- (
city. The Niagara is forever stamped i
upon my heart an image of beauty to re- |
main there changeless and indeliihle un- t
til all trouble oftdaily life .receded from i
my view and lessened in the distance dur- t
ing the dav I passed on that enchanted 1
ground. What voices spoke from out the
thundering water, what face# faded from i
tho earth, looked out upon mo from lla \
gleaming depths. What heavenly prom- i
ise glistened in those angels' fears the t
drops of many hues that showered onus I
there. To wander to and fro all day and i
see the cataract from all point* of view, t
Wo first proceed to Horse-Shoe fall. The 1
view here is awfully grand. Repairing to c
tho museum, vro are clothed In a water t
proof suit, leaving nothing visable but our *
phiz ; we then follow opr guide down tha
long flights of stone steps, down, down, et s
we gaxo upwards at the frowning cliff that
leems tottering to its face, and pas# under y
;he thick curtiu of wafer to near that it u
leems as if we could touch it. and hear the C
Hissing (pray and are stunned by the deaf- h
tiling roar that issues from the misty ver- o
ex at our feet, an indiscribable feeling of h

quid curtain everi passing on

caverns. The volume of water tbat'gu#bc>
; over the Horseshoe fall is enormous It Is
oatlmatcd that the sheet is fully'JU feet
[thick in the centre, It is of a deep green '
ootor. We then ascend the locg stairway f
to tho museum where we arc Jivoetod of
thai magnificent robe which changed our
! appearance from that of demons to human
beings This museum which stand# at the
1 top of tho bank near table Wilt, is well '
1 worth visiting ; it contains a fine collection
lof birds, beasts and fishes, besides a cam- !
era obscura. We then proceeded to and
crossed the new Huspeiuiun bridge which
, take# rank with any similar structure In
the world. It is designed more especially
fer foot passengers and carriages. This
- bridge Is 1240 feet in length, and 10 fe. t in
width ; the elevation oftliis bridge above
the water is I'JO feet ; depth of the river
under the bridge 260 feet. A fine view ofi
the fall* and surroundings Is had from this I
bridge while passing over. Being now on !
the American side, we pas# thro igh the
i grove and cross the iron bridge over the
. rappids. Here the noble River I* seen hur
ry ing on toward* its final leap, and as we
stand upon the bridge looking down upon
the gushing flood of water that seems as if
it would iween away our frail standing
' place and hurl us over the dread precipice
whose rounded edge is but a tew yards
further down. This is a fine point from
which to observe the rappids above the
fall*. The fall* of the river from the head
1 of the rappids, a mile above the falls, to
the edge of the precipice is 60 feet, and I
theinadn*## of the water* hurling and)
foaming in billews and breaker* down the {
1 ascent, a# if fretting with impatience, is a!
fine contrast to the uniform, magnificent j
sweep with which at length they rush into
the thundering flood below. Reaching
(ioat island ; a narrow bridge connects
this island we have a fine view of the rap*
pid and the American falls, affording an
opportunity of approaching the very verge
or the precipice where you con k*>k down
into the seething caldron below. Tho cen
tral fall over which we pas* in our return
to Goat ia!and,although a mere ribbon of
j white water when seen from a short d is
jtance in contrast with the great falls, is by
no mean* unworthy of notice. It is lot)
| feel wide and is a very graceful sheet.
| Proceeding along the banks shirt dis
>. laucc, we are pointed out the spot where;
the celebrated Sam I'atcb made nis fauiou)(
1 leaps, jumping over the falls 97 feet into i
the river. A fittle further on vie come to
the cave of the winds, it is situated at the
toot of the rocks between Goal island and
: Lui d island, and is considered by soinc as
' one of the finest and uiost woudeiful sights
r on the American tide. Can't describe the
leave from the fact wc were too much ex-[
I'hausted to descend, and passed on until
' we reached the extremity of the Lland ;
we crossed the bridge to Tereapin Tower ;
this lower occupies a singular and awful
- position. A few scattered ma#a* of rock
lie on the very brink of the great fall seam
>]ae if unable to maintain their position
■ against the tremendous rush of water. I
rpon these rock* the town is built. Wei
f plunged into the narrow dour and up the I
k long winding stair* till we reached the
I sutnuiil where we obtained tha moet mag-'
- nificentvlaw that can be conceived; the,
t.rappids above rolling tumultously to- -
ward you ; the green water of the mighty!
falls at your feet; below you the hissing
■ caldron of spray, and the river with its 1
( Uep bank# beyond, in fact the wholei
t range of the fall# themselves and the world i
■] of raging water* around them, are scan i
I from this commanding point of view.
- While standing on the top of this town, re
- fleeting on the wonlerous works of Nature 1
■you realise a feeliug of the deepest solem- j
nity stealing over you, when you are coin
• polled to adore tho power and majesty of
- Un-Almigfity ruler of the Universe.
We assm descend the crooke d stair j

9 Moss island is a small but beautiful fall
named Hermit's Cascade, where tbe un-'
. fortunate Abbot was wont to repair daily <
r to enjoy a shower bath of natures own

i accessible, are now connected by substan
tial fool bridge* from which tbe grandest
views of the rappids are to be obtained.

others stand in the mi<lt of the raging
; current looking black in the while turmoil
s of surrounding foam and seeming as if
i tbey would fain check the angry waters in
[ their headlong rush towards the falls.
- There is a far-nation about this mighty
i cataract which seems to chain us to the'

us irresistably back again. Even in our
• j frail attempt to dascriba, however inade- >
• qualcly the task may be accomplished, we 1
are loth to lay down the pen and tear our
i selves away from that wonderftil sceno.
The Almighty has invested Niagara
with a power which frail man that 1 am, 1
cannot resist, and those who gaxe upon it
for the fitst time have a new>ra opened up
in their existence. New thoughts andim-;
pressions have been stamped indellibly]
