Pacific and Atlantic Telegraph Company--
The-stockholders of the Pacific and. At
lantic Telegraph, Company hold their an
nual. meeting Tuesday, May sth, •at the
Board of Trade Rooms, Wood street. The
meeting was organized by calling A. F.
Martens to the chair, after which the re
ports of the President and Treasurer were
read. From the reports it appears that
the Company have at present 1,853 nines of
line, 3,244 miles of wire, and have no debt
beyond that. arising .from the current ex-.
pense of the lines, and that the treasury
has in it a handsome sum of 'money. The
reports also•show that although the com
pany have made eleven - consecutive quar
terly dividends, there is over and above
the dividends paid and the expenses, a
surplus of earnings nearly. equal •to the
amount of dividends . paid. On this show
ing comment is unnecessary, the more es
pecially when we reflect that thisprofitable
business is connected with a great, public
benefit which has been conferred by the
management of this corporation on the
business community of the whole country
over which the wires of the company reach,
by the large reduction they have brought
about in the cost of telegraphing. ' •
At the conclusion of the reading of the
reports; the following resolutions offered
by C. B. M. Smith, Esq., and seconded by
Mark Watson, Esq., were unanimously
Be.solved, That the thanks of :he Stock
holders of • the Pacific and Atlantic Tele
graph Company of the United States be and
they are hereby given to Geo. H. Thurston,
Esq., President of the Corporation, and Ed
ward Jay Allen, Esq., Secretary and. Treas
urer, for the very prudent and skillful, effi
cient and energetic manner in which they
have superintended, directed and managed
the affairs of the company during the past
Re.solved, That the thanks of the Stock
holders be and they are hereby tendered to
the Executive Committee for the able man
ner in which they have discharged their
duties during the past year.
An electiqn of officers for the ensuing
year was then gone into, at which was voted
a majority of the whole amount of stock
issued. The election resulted in the unati,
imous election of the following board of .of
For. President—George H. Thurston, of

In the case of Capt., Charles' Gearing vs.
James Malinger, which occupied the,atten
ti3n of the District Court during the past
week, the jury yesterday returned a verdict
for the plaintiff in the sum of $41,958 33, the
larger portion of the amount claimed.
This suit grew out of the failure of the de
fendant to report the proceeds of a large
sale of cotton, run through the blockade,
and owned by. Capt. Gearing, from the
South, And sold in New York _dosing the
rebellien. The plaintiff fought the case
with tenacity and sometime Ago nearly as
heavy a verdict was returned for ;rar
nishees on the same claim.l The trial just
closed hilly vindicated the character of
Capt. Gearing as a goed Union citizen, not
withstanding the fact that he operatedwith
capital in the Southern market during the
early part of the rebellion, where he was
caught with his boats at its outbreaking,
and that he was abused and maligned as a
rebel by parties against whom civil suits
for,tlainages are to be soon brought.

Among the notables are two
BEAUTIFUL CIRCASSIAN' ems,
who. were on exhibition at his museum,
and are said to he the only females of this
race ever before seen in America. Zobeide

termed in the flowery language of the East,
was brought fron t ßisiser, Circassia.

whose marvelou beauty and captivating
manners make her a universal favorite, was
brought' from - • Constantinople, and :was
presented at many of the European Courts,
previirm:to her arrival inthis country. Re

surpasses the old hero by over a foot in

The world-fanied proprietor of the mu

girls who ever saw -him at the museum.

22 pounds. In point of'size a greater curi

Some philosopher once remarked that
things wore only "great" or "small" by com
parison. Adopting this idea Mr. Barnum:
presents us with
A PICKWICKIAN BABY,
Not four years .old, who has attained the
enormous - weight of two hundred and twenty
pounds. He is the ' , Biggest Baby" in the
world, good natured, full Of life and spirit,
and creates more fun among the ladies at
the receptions than the entire' party. Of
course he is net the most graceful infant
imaginable; but he makes up in sport what
he omits in gracefulness. It is with-diffi
culty he can totter from chair to chair, and
two attendants carry him up 'and down
stairs, and elsewhere. • •
Our space will not permit us to dwell
longer on these ' , freaks of nature .r Suf
fice it to say they will hold their first re
ception at Masonic Hall, commencing Fri
day afternoon and evening, May Bth, and
continue one week. The admission is only
twenty-five cents for adults and fifteen
cents for children.
Elsewhere the halls have not been large
enough to hold the crowds who have
thronged these levees. They are moral,
attractive and amusing, and we predict
crowded houses to Barnum's Lilliputian
and Brobdignagian receptions while in
Pittsburgh. Remember they open to-moac
row, (-F'riday) May Bth, for one week, after
noons and evenings.
