It is estimated that the total valuation
of property in t'ae county under
the assessment of 1S30 will be about $91,
0!)0,0;)0, :;i compared with $94,000,000,
last year. Tjis rale for 1870 was 2 mills,
from which about $'J:."3.000 revenue was
derived. The sum was found insufficient

liquidate debts for contracts made and
work done under direction of the
former beaid of .i:ninissieners. Hence
the necessity for. raising the rate te
:: mills, which will increase the
revenue te about $27:3,000. The
estimated county expenditures for the year
ending.Ianuary 1, 18S1, (including between
$20,000 and $::0,(i0i) in old debts)are $275,-0-!').

!teu the C lebratien Originated Something
About its Observance.
Saturday next will be St. Valentine's
day. Tradition has it that this day was.se
called in honor of a piiest or bishop named
Valentine, who sulfeicd martyrdom under
the Ihup.'ier Ckndius II., at Heme, A. 1).
271, and for which fact he was sainted by
the Hely See. It i-; also stated that en or
about the middle ' IVbmary the Luper-
ci'iau fca-ts began that were heldin honor
efthj licathen deities, Pan anil June, at
which time it was the custom, amidst a
variety of ceremonies, te place the names
of young women in a box. from which they
were drawn by the young men as de
cisive in matrimonial matters. And
tradition also has it that the priest re
feired te, becoming convinced that the
custom was prejudicial, was zealous in
overthrowing it, and that he substituted
therefer the names of saints in billets en
that day, who. when drawn, were te be
regm ded by the person obtaining the same
as his or her patron saint throughout the
year, and hence the day became St. Valen
tine's day, mere from accident than design.
However true this may be, it is quite cer
tain that St. Valentine's day, or the 14th
of February, was early set apart by cus
tom for observance by the young people of
all civili.ed countries, and that the romance
therewith has te a greater or less degree
kept the custom from becoming obselete1
In England and Scotland te the present
day a ceremony is observed en the evening
of St. Valentine's day similar te the
ancient Ueman custom. An equal number of
the young people of both sexes assemble
at the home of one of their numbers for
the purpose of drawing one of the opposite
sex, who is te be. his valentine for the en
suing year. This custom often ended in
obtaining a partner for life. Frem the
custom of cheesing males, it is believed
.that the subsidiary custom of writ
ing love episues leek, us origin, nnai:
speare and Chaucer refer te the day as
duly observed by young men in the send
ing of courteous letters t young ladies
containing professions of attachment
and geed wishes for the year. This method
of observing the day seen after became
very general, and continued in favor for a
considerable period thereafter. The day
is new almost everywhere a mir;h degener
ated festival, and its approach is usually
heralded by the appearance in the shop
windows of a great v.iuicty of ridiculous
colored caricatures of the in -lie and female
figure, with a e-w burlesque lines below.
Anether Stable Iliiruc.l Last Night.
Last night a stable situate en the west
ide of North Queen street, near Clay
street, was burned te the ground between
10 and 1 1 o'clock. The building was of
very geed size and it formerly belonged te

and Jehn Strohl. of Millway. and was leas

an acre and a half of tobacco belonging te
H. S. Shrcincr, in the building, and it was
entirely consumed. Mr. Dift'cubacli re
moved his crop of tobacco, which was there
also, a few days age. The night being
very dark the tire made a brilliant light
and it could be seen in every section of the
city. The tire companies were en hand
very promptly, but were unable te save
the building, which was entirely frame,
and burned very rapidly. There was an
insmance of $e00 en the barn.

The Edisen Light.
Applications for the charter of electric
light and fuel companies, in Philadelphia,
having been made te Gov. Heyt, the Har
burg correspondent of the Jlccerd writes te
it as fellows : " Thus far Governer Heyt
has net ordered the charters te be issued.
Several days age he had before him repre
sentatives of rival electric light atid heat
companies iu Lancaster and Pittsburgh,
each of whom claimed precedence in the
matter of applying for a charter. The
Philadelphia parties were also en hand te
present their application in a favorable
light, but the governor postponed hearing
the arguments until a future time, in
order te have decided certain legal
questions connected with the mat
ter in the cases of the Lancaster and
Pittsburgh companies, as the governor is
undecided as te whether both light and
heat can be embraced in one charter. The
Philadelphia company, however, asks for
two charters, each covering separate points,
and if there be no legal obstruction, the
charters will no doubt be granted. It is
slid that certain parties in 'the
larger cities of this state are mak
ing applications for charters for
electric light companies, with no in
tention of going into operation, but for
the purpose of forestalling Edisen, should
his invention prove a success and be appli
cable te the lighting of streets, as, Under
the law, two charters are net granted te
separate parties in a city for one and the
same purpose. Should the company
owning Edisen's patent seek te introduce
its light into these cities it will cither have
te purchase the charter secured or give up
the intention. "
B. F. Eshlcinan, esq., of this city, re
presents parties who are interested in a
company for the whole county and city ;
J. Hay Brown, esq., represents and has
asked for a charter for a company whose
operations are te be confined te the city.

A SimpIe-SIiisiieil Youth the Victim.
Tliis morningayeung man called at Alder
man Barr's office and handed him a note
which read as fellows : " Mr. Alderman
Please send this boy out for ten days.'' The
alderman told the young man te lake a
seat, and supposing that it was his desire
te be committed as a vagrant, asked the
young man his name and proceeded te fill
up a commitment, and awaited the ar
rival of an officer te take the young fellow
te jail. After sitting for some time, the
young man, who gave his name as Geerge
Michael Simen Becker, get up and said he
believed he would go. "Wait until an
officer comes," said the alderman. " Ne,
I have an errand te go," replied the young
man. " Don't you want le go te jail :'"
demanded the alderman. ' Ne. I want

me a note te you, and he gave me thai."'
That settled it ; the peer fellow, who
seemed te be a little weak in the upper
story, was being made a victim of by two
practical jokers, who had taken position
opposite the alderman's office te see the

CAPITAL SEEKING INVESTMENT.
A Great Purchase of Ceal Land
The largest sale of coal property ever
effected in Fayette ceuuty was consum
mated recently by a company composed
principally of New Yerk, Philadelphia and
Eastern Pennsylvania capitalists, who
own immense bodies of coal in the
anthracite regions where they also carry
ou mining operations extensively. Among
the names mentioned in connection
with this corporation arc these of
Judge A. W. Leiscnring of Mauch Chunk,
Jehn C. Bullitt, Samuel Dickinsen and Mr.
Mullen of the!St.Cloudhetel,Philadclphi:i,
Mr. Potts of New Yerk, and Majer A. B.
Dcsaulles, vice president of the Dunbar
furnace company. The company includes
several ether well-known capitalists,
but they are being kept in the
background just new. The coal pur
chased lies in Dunbar, Franklin and North
Union townships, and embraces within a
fraction of eight thousand acres for which
nearly one million dollars was paid. It
is the very cream of the vast
deposit of Cennellsvillc coking coal,
and is located between Uniontown and
Connellsville, along the lines of the Pitts-1
uurg urvutjuu.uii tun .uaitimurc awn vjiiie
railroad and the southwest branch of the
Pennsylvania railroad. A purchase of
such magnitude as this is destined te exert
a great influence in the coal and coke man
ufacturing business of the region. The
sinking of shafts and the construction of
coke works of extensive capicity will seen
be commenced by the company for the
purpose of getting their product into
Hew an English Princess, Travel.
The account of the departure
of the Princess Louise for
Canada, en the steamship Sarmatian,
Capt. Aird, of the Baltimore and Liver
pool Hue, new in the pert of Baltimore,
lias been printed in the form of a circular
taken from the Liverpool press of January
12, the date of her departure. It says her
royal highness, the Princess Louise,
(Marchioness of Leme,) arrived in Liver
pool by special train, accompanied by the
Prince of Wales and the Duke of Edin
burgh, her brothers, en her way te rejoin
her husband in Canada. The suite of the
princess were the Hen. Mrs. Lang
hem, Lady Pelly, Captain Clutter and
Captain Celins. Cel. McNeill, equerry-in-waiting
te the queen, was iu attendance en
the princess by her majesty's command.
Thousands of people had assembled along
the route. The bridge and the landing-stage
were covered with scarlet
velvet. On the stage were sta
tioned two beats' crews of river police
and 110 men from a war vessel. The
account gives minute details of the em
barkation, and the names of distinguished
persons present, including the Messrs.
Allan, of the steamship company. The
band played the national anthem and "Ged
Bless the Prince of Wales. " The Sarma
tian heisted the royal standard, as the sig-
mil that the princess was safe en beard;
and as the great vessel passed out a royal
salute of 21 guns was lircd. All the
apartments en the pert side of the steamer
were reserved for her royal highness and
suite. The sleeping apartment of the
marchioness was litted up most elegantly
in the French style, and her sitting-room,
immediately adjoining, was a model of re
finement and exquisite taste, the
panels being richly upholstered in
crimson satin. A heating apparatus
was fitted up between the two apart
ments, and there was a bath-room imme
diately adjoining. The circular says the
Sarmatian bids fair te be quite au histori
cal steamer. She was chartered during
the Ashantee war te convey the British
troops te Cape Coast Castle, and en her
arrival at Plymouth at the close of the war,
was the centre of a great ovation. Capt.
Aird had rendered important service by au
unusally quick run from Cape Coast Castle
te Gibraltar, bearer el au important tele
gram from Sir Garnet Wolseley, command
er of the forces en the west coast te the
war office. His conduct excited much fa
vorable comment at the time.and no doubt,
the circular says, had its share iu securing
his selection te have the care of a member
of the royal house for a third time in cross
ing the Atlantic, and at the specially ex
pressed wish of the princess herself.
