Is wholly erroneous—that the Greek tele

that the ending "graph" had its 1160 re
strietal, by usage, (as in autograph. chirp
graph, holograph,) to the writer or the thing
written, until the close of the last century,
when telegraph was invented—that photo
graph, also a nineteenth century word, is an
exception, but constructed according to strict
analogy—and that, as telegraph cannot now
mean the despatched, instead of Telegraph
Despatch, we should use the word telegrapheme,
instead of telegram, which (Cambridge says)
is a barbarism.
NATHANIEL Lyn, tho mad dramatist, declar
ed, over a hundred years . ago, that
"whoa Greek meets Greek, then Nunes the tug

and flict literary battle about Telegram shows
it: Oxford contends that analogy (as in

Greek word tele, used in the new com

Coll , 7llllfell BOOM, rally, March 211th,1857
Rut : The committee appointed by the Lords
Commissioners of the Admiralty, to inquire into
the expediency of altering the present system of
lights, established for steamers and sailing vessels,
assembled on the 7th of Maroli, and have continued
their meetings until the 28th instant; and leaving
fully considered the subjeet lin which their opinions
have boon required, hero unanimously agreed to
the following roport :
Thu committee having considered the instruc
tions of the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty,
together with the memorial of four hundred and
thirty-five musters of colliers from Shields, praying
that colored lights, red tend green, may be os
tablished in till sailing vcosels, to point out their
respective tacks, and a bright light when going
free; and the committee having also made them
selves conversant with the evidence given before
the committee in 1852, judged it necessary to call
for ouch further evidence no might enable them to
come to a satisfactory conclusion. For which pur
pose, the committee requested that members of
shipowners' associations, the most intelligent
masters, pilots, and other persons, might ho nos
looted front the ports of London, Glasgow, Liver.
pool, Shields, and Bull, and also naval alums,
who had had experience of the working of the
present system, sines its adoption in 1852.
From the information obtained from these per
sons, it appeared to the committee that (here was
an uniform opinion that the system now in use in
I steamers is perfectly oatiofactory; hut with respect
to sailing vessels, directly the reverse; and all
agreed that colored side-lights, similar to those
carried in steamers, should be adopted in sailing
vessels, in order that vessels approaching each
tither might know which way each is standing.
The general opinion also woe, that the Sailing
vessel should not carry (ho bright white light at
the mast-head, the smite no in steamers, so that
this would become a distiognishing mark between
the two classes.
The next consideration was, as to whether the
colored lights, red and groan, should designate the
port and starboard tarb, or the port and starboard
sides, when shown in sailing vessels. Tim first
impression, iu most instances, with the persons ex
amined was. that the run should be designated;
but when it wits explained to them that either
colpred light might, according to the direction of
the wind, denote a sailing vessel going in the 0 1 1-
poke direction to that which would ho indicated
by the exhibition of the seine colored light in a
steamer, and if the white light of this latter ves
sel were not visible, it might toad to collision, they
readily admitted the propriety of the color of the
light designating the side without any roforenoo
to the tack or the wind, and that they would then
instantly know which way the vessel showing the
light was Standing, the same as now in steamers,
and that the same rules would apply to all vessels.
It then became a serious question, whether those
colored lights should be shown only occasionally,
when a vessel was seen, or be kept fixed. It (ho
fo r mer, (oecasionally,l it was feared the present
groat evil of indifference and want of n ' 'good look
out," from which so largo a portion of all the cob
Miens arise, would still exist. On the other hand,
it is certain that the smaller vessels and coasters
could not carry fixed lights in bad weather. After
weighing all the opinions and objeotions on this
subject, the committee consldei that the host mode
would be to recommend strongly that the colored
tights should bo carried fixed, when practicable.
leaving with those who cannot do so the responsi
bility of neglecting to show such lights by band,
when approaching ether vessels. Tf the foregoing
suggestion be adopted, it should be made impera
tive that when the vessels are under Way, those
lights should be on dock "from sunset tostinrise,"
ready for use, and kept en their diatinotire aides
of the vessel, no as to prevent the possibility' of
chewing the wrong light.
In all vessels that Carry their lights fixed, it Will
be twee:vary to adopt Havens, no in steatiorS, that
the light may not be seen on the opposite bow or
side to that intended. In the smaller classes at
vessels, the committee are of opinion that the
weather board in moderato weather may ho made
to answer that purpose; and at other times the lan
terns, when used by hand, may he so screened as
to show a light only in the proper direction.
With respect to vessels at anchor, the opinions
have been very conflicting, varying between car
rying a white light, as at present, or a rod light;
and agate, whether the lights should be fixed, or
only sheen occasionally on vessels approaching
These points 'having been duly considered, the
committee ennui to the conclusion, that it would
be desirable that nn uniform single white light in
a globular Motel n, so as to show nil round the hori
zon, should be continuously dxhibitod at anchor,
"where bust seen," at a height not exceeding twen
ty feet above the hull.
In recommending this system of lights to your
lordships, the committee are aware that some ad
ditional expense will be loured ; but they dd not
anticipate nay objection. Theowners and masters
of vessels who have boon examined by the commit
tee, have themselves proposed the adoption of two
colored lights and a white light; it may, therefore,
be presumed that the cost of ono more light in ad
dition to that now In use would not be objected to
es a means of obtaining a greater security for life
and property.
The eubjeet of lights' to distinguish jrllot•vesaols
having been brought before the committee, it was
found that lights for this purpose were in general
use, but subject to no particular regulation, each
port having its own signal With a view to este:.
fish one uniform system for all pilot-vessels, it is
suggested that, in addition to the lights proposed
fur sailing vessels, they should show a white light
on the eame level with the colored light.
A moulorial from the pilots' coiumitteo of Liver
pool, praying that they may be permitted to have
two lights exhibited by vossole at anchor within
that pert. having been laid before the committee
by their lordships, the committee consider that
such oireamstances have been 'stated respeeting
the numerous ferries; by the persons from Liver
pool who have been examined, so as to justify their
suggesting that this should bo made a speoial ease,
and the prayer granted. And as it appease to this
committee that cases may arise at other ports, from
the crowded state of the anchorage, and the great
length of the vessels, in which it may be necessary
to define both extremities, the committee recent-
mend that, on the application of the toed authori
ties to the Admiralty, their lordships should au
thorize a white light to ho exhibited within the
limits of their port by vessels at anchor, In addition
to that now preposed.
Although not coining immediately under the
subjects of lights, the propriety of establishing sig
nals for avoiding collisions during fogs, has boon
so strongly impressed upon the committee, that
they have given it their consideration, and, submit
that their lordships should recommend an uniform
practice in that respect. The mostecommon instru
ments for this purpose in use at present aro the
stoma-whistle er bell, and tho horn, and the coin
mince think that the use of these might ho ad
vantageously limited as follows, via; that as the
coasting and other smaller vessels do not all carry
bells, it is desirable that their lordships should re
commend, 113 a general rule, that all steamers
should, in a fog, use the strarp•tuhistle or bell, and
all Hulling-vessels a fog-horn, and that these sounds
should be made within short intervals. A pattern
of a cheap and useful horn, known as the Ameri
can tog horn, lies been forwarded to the committee
as one much usod at Liverpool; and the commit
tee think it well adapted to the purpose. The pat
torn accompanies this report.
Iu conclusion, the committee, fully impressed
with the importance of the subject broughtender
their consideration, aro unanimous iu their opinion,
for the reasons above stated—
Firstly—That no alterations should bo made in
the menet system of ateamers' lights
Secondly—That the bright light now exhibited
by sailing vessels, when under sail or being towed,
should he abolished, and that instead thereof each
vessels ehould exhibit, between sunset and sunrise,
to any vessel or vessels, a red light on the port
side and a green light on the starboard side, cor
responding to the colored side-lights now shown by
steamers, without any reference to tacks,
Thirdly—That thou colored lights should ho
fixed, whoa practicable; and that when such
lights are not fixed, places should bo provided iii
ihluh the lights should ho kept on their respective
sides ready for exhibition.
'Fourthly—That ail lights, whether fixed or ex
hibited by hand, should Mese bareetkod as to render
them invisiblo on the opposite bow or side of the
vessel, -which the committee consider quite practi
Fifthly—That the ilghtiproposed tdbo exbibitid
by sailing 111.4015 should in no owe hu of leas siso
or power than the lantern which the committee
recommend, and which shows an uniform and un
broken light oversixteen points of the compass.
Sixthly—That all vessels at Anchor, whether
steamers or sailing vessels, should exhibit "whore
beg seen," between sunset and sunrise, a white
light, of uniform size and power, in aglobular lan
tern of six incites diameter, at a height not ex
ceeding twenty feet above the hull of the vessel.
SevullthlY—The entillitildeo consider it desirable
further to recommend, that the pilot vessels of the
United Kingdom should be designated by particu
lar lights. They would, therefore, submit that, in
addition to the rod and green lights now proposed
f o r oil classes of stank...vessels, pilot vessels should
be permitted to exhibit a white light, on a level
with the red or green light.
Eightlily--The committee having taken inconsid
eration the subject of signals during fogs, would re
oommend, for the regotons stated in the foregoing
report, that SteIIIHOIA 011011111 nee either the steam
whistle or hell, anti that all other roacha should
use a fog-horn.
Finally—The counnitteo taro of opinion that tho
above regulations, if approved of by their lordship'',
should apply to all vesnis of the United Kingdom,
in every part of the world, unless especially ex
cepted by the Admiralty.
The committee cannot close their report7without
stating that the evidence adduced proves that the
minutia' of collisions Is chiefly attributable to the
neglect of a "good look-out," and they submit that
it y6uuld be strongly impressed on the masters of
all vessels that this huportunt duty be more rightly
attended to.

ildph Osborne, fist'., M. P., Secretory of the
Scalping a Woman on the l'inlns.
Some m coke ago none from Carson Valley was
published which told of the almost total destruction
of no emigrant train by the lndians. A woman,
who was one of the train, was scalped and loft for
dead. It turned oat, however, that she was not
dea 1, nndshe has since recovered to tell the extra
ordinary story of her sufferings and hor resolute
endurance, which deceived the savages. The lted
Bluffs Bearers, of the 10th of September, thus NHS
the story :
An instance of the most remarkable fortitude
nod heart-rending cruelty wo over heard of is
related to us by a black man by the name of Scott,
who has recently arrived hero from Missouri, by
the way of the Plains. He informs us that a short
time before ho arrived at Stony Point, on the
Humboldt river, the Indians attacked n train of
six mon, one woman, and a child. The moon were
all killed but one, who made his mope. The
child was also killed, and its mother shot in seve
ral places with arrows, evolved, and left for dead.
All the while they wore scalping her and strip
ping the clothes front her body she was perfectly
conscious of what they were doing, hut feigned
death, and lot them tear the skin from her bona
without even giving signs of life, knowing that if
she did they would either despatch hor at once or
Luke her into hopeless capthity. At one time,
when they had left her fur a moment, she ventured
to ehange her position, in order, if possible, to re•
limo herself from the uncomfortable posture in
which she was lying; but on roturning they soon
discovered that she had moved; and, for fear that
life might not be extinct, they took hold of the
arrows that were still sticking in hor heel, and
worked them about in her wounds, and pushed them
deeper into her flesh, and stamped upon her with
their heels.
All this rho endured without uttering a groan
or drawing a breath that could be perceived by
the savages; and in that condition was loft as food
for the wolves Fortunately, howevor train
came along bolero eho had lain long in dint condi
tion, and dressoil her wounds and hreught her
along with Ihmn; and not the least remarkable
fool attending the whole matter is that she is fast
recovering from hor wounds. liar head, wo aro
told, is nearly well, and Um arrow wounds doing
better than nay one expected.
Amount of Specie In the Country.
It becomes important et the present time to as
certain how much specie there is in the country;

cannot he depreciated or in any way disturbed by
any explosions. The specie basis of the banks it
stated to bo about mxty minions, and tine unpiny
turns to the mould in goners! (*lodation among

American says :
Win have taken the pains, for our own satisfac
tion, to look over the official figures for a series of
years, in order to approximate a safe opinion upon
this subject, and they develop some results of stri
king littered, at the present janoturo, which ought
to inspiro feelings of encouragement, oven in the
most desponding. Notwithstanding the enormous
depletion of precious metals during the last seven
years, it will be seen that the coinage in that po-
Hod exceeded the exports by an amount almost
equal to the whole coinage during the preceding

The uniform edition of Chatles Dickens'
Works, with illustrations by Cruikshank, Cat
termolo, and 11. K. Brown, now in enurso of
publication by3fr. Peterson, will be completed
in twenty-live volumes, the nineteenth and
twentieth of which consist of “Sketches by
Box." Twenty-two years ago, when Dickens
was a parliamentary reporter on the London
Morning Chr'onicle, he published, in the tri
weekly edition of that journal, the sketches
signed "Box," which afterwards, collected into
book-shape, introduced Dickens to the reading
world as an anther. For it is a peculiarity in
-English literature, that--with very few excep
tions, Such as Macaulay—scarcely any writer
is recognised as an author sinless he has pub
lished a book. So tboitre h rh/y was this acted
upon, until very lately, at least, that the Litera
ry Fund, out of which distressed authors are
relieved, made it a point of not even consider
ing any case in which the applicant had not
published a book—no matter how worthless.
A lifagazinlst, however brilliant, would thus
ho passed over, and a Were newspaper writer
would bo scowled at. Barnes and Stirling, for
example, the greatest writers for the London
Tinwi, tined not present themselves, if wanting
relief,; to the Fund, , because though they had
respectively Written scores of volumes, as re
.quentity (to say nothing of quality,)
neither had published A book.
The success of the ISketclies" was so great,
that Chapnitui & Hall, Lebdon publishers,
wore thereby induced to employ Dickens to
write an Olustmted serial for them. Hence
came The Posthumous Papers of the Pick
wick Glob." There was this difference: the
"Sketchps'y made their mark by their own
merit alone, whereas every subsequent fiction
by Dickens had the advantage of characteristic
illustratio as. Wonderful aids to publicity and
popularity these have been, for they gave the
readers pt Tamed knowledge, as it were, of the
various individuals Introduced in each story.
litm Pederson has preserved every one of
these illustrations, pre tinting well-executed
repetitions of engraving, and preserving the
spirit, and the grace, and the humor of them
all. Here, in these " Sketches by Dos," are
twenty engravings by George Crulksharik, the
greatest humorist with the pencil and graver,
since William Hogarth, and superior to Ho
garth 'in many points. The paper, typo
graphy, and binding arc also excellent, and
warrant us fully irt saving that, not even the
best European earn; .of Dickens can at all
compare with Peterson's, which has the ad
vantage, also, of being sold at a third of the
English price.

It hi not a part of my nature to kick the dead
lion," or to withhold from the lame dog my arAst
anee in crossing the stile; but when I behold the
position of the New York and Erie Railroad, and
BM fermi to listen to the slanders against the
Reading by the parties engaged in prolonging its
existence—to hear it proclaimed that although they
aro in a very tight place, they "area d—d eight
better than the Reading "—I feel the necessity of
departing from the prinoiples ,that hitherto have
governed my notions, and to show to the public the
actual position in which they stand. In the expo
sition I shall, therefore, confine my remarks to the
work in question, and leave the Reading and the
Pennsylvania Railroads to tako care of themselves.
They, having the location and the distance in their

Were it not the gambling and speculative prepare

exposed to the influence that is crushing the great
mercantile interests of the imuntry. But of this
in the sequel.
In the conception of the New York and Erie the
ostensible'objeet was a monopoly of the trade of the
West. One end of the work was to rest upon the city
of New York, and the ether eventually on the shore
of this NM °, and without considering the later
seeing mountains and the otherwise impracticable
difficulties, "the capital and pride of the city"
was adequate to its accomplishment. It was "a
great living artery." It was , tan imperishable
monument to New York enterprise." It was "our
oottntry's glory." It was, in short, the offspring
of 'Wall street, and all Mankind were called upon
to retmrerime and glorify the projectors.' But now,

of the Camden and Amboy, the Reeding, the
Pennsylvania Central, and the Pittsburgh, Fort
Wayne, and Chicago. On this recto, which here
after is to be the trunk lino between the East and
the Nast, the distance is not only shorter by ninety
to one hundred miles, but the grades throughout
are of a character to enable one engine to do the
work of three in any other direction. From Chi l i
cago to Pittsburgh them is no grade against the
trade exceeding thirty-three feet to tho mile.
From Pittsburgh to the sinewit of the Allegheny
Mountain, the object is attained by a maximum
grade of forty-nine feet, and from thence to the
city of Philadelphia, over tho Lebanon Valley and
the Reading, a distance of too hundred and fifty
six miles, a single engine can do the work of tire
on the New York and Erie. These fasts determine
the course of the trade, and as the distance is ono

which alone will save $5.40 per ton to the producer,
we may recognise another fact, that the forty cents
