citizens, wu handed us for publication
EDITOBS GAZETTII:—No little excite
went wu created on our streets yesterday
when the news of the defeat of our
townsman M. NAMacker, fox quo
war, warflashed over the twines.- - Many
who took no part in politics, but who
.have great pride In our city, were loud
in their denunciation of that traitorous
sheet, the Commercial, for its onslaught
on Mr. Mackey. It Is seldom that Pitts
burghers are honored with the gilt of a
State oMce, and when one of their num
ber wu fairly nominated, and then

under the thumb of Democr4s, and

funn our citizens, and fOr no other rea
sons, except personal spleen and malice,
It Is time all wbo have any local pride
should know what the "squatters" who
ran the Commercial get out of the "sub
stantial advantages' for their share In
the defeat of Mr. Mackey. We suppose
this flip flap skeet. will claim all the honor
in defeating a worthy , Pittsburgher and
electing a man who is pledged to give the
spoils to the Democrats, and run the of
fice in behalf of that party. Pittsburgh
rat, this Is a matter that Is humiliating.
I hope it will mot be forgotten. Letnone
forget or calmly submit to Diehl:mitt. ion
of one of our own citizens.
• A Dange'r trnanitttecee.
A writer in the London Spectator has
taken some pains to point out what he
believes to be "the tree danger of tobsc.
co." After reverting to the general use
of this weed, welch might, he alleges, be
considered a harmless luxury but for one
exceptional fact, be asys ~.,"Has not to
bacco a property
'belonging! to very few
substances, which makes its use excep
tionally dangerous—the property, when
administered in an overdose, of effecting
some permanent change, probably in the
spinal cord, which renders the victim
forever after liable to injury from the
minutest dose 1" Three Cases are quoted
froni Dr. Drubeahr work on tobacco as
pointing to the real danger arising from
its nee. - - The first ease was that of a Mr.
T., a lawyer, thirty years of age, of ath
lete frame, who, for five years, had
shown symptoms of a, spinal affection,
which had resisted all parades. Oa the
'recommendation of Di. Druben, this
person Jpive up the use of tobacco, in
which no had indulged to excess. The
result was that "all the symptoms direp.
peered, as if by enchantment, and at the
end of one month the cure was com
plete." The restoration ,to , health lasted
some time, and until' one day, dining
with the doctor, he indulged himself,
contrary to the earnest remonstrances of
the tomer, in a cigar. No sooner had
be finished the second one than be felt
that all his old sensations .had returned.
Warned by this deciarye. intimation, the
gentleman henceforth grid up his cigar,
, took tonies for a month, and baa ever
' csince enjoyed excel ent health. The sec
ad cam was tha l t of a person (IL M.)
who felt his energies declining, lost his
. appetite, and only found comfort in amok-
Sag very strong clocri. He complained
of acute pain bide region of kis stomach
every afternoon, which only ceased at
night; trembling of the limbs, palpitation
and eemtimes sickness. On his ran.
gnishing the use of tobacco for one month,
the symptoma disappeared; but prefering
the pleasure from tobacco to health, he
resumed Its use, and had in,rettart a re

VOL. TXX XV

Citizens of Pittsburgh, on the subject
of the Water Supply for the Proposed
I have read with eardthl Oblation the
,views of W. W. Reed, Esq., Superinten.
dent of the (Pennsylvania) Erie Canal,
published In the Erie Dispryth and re
published in the Commerdal of January
:3d,-relating specially .to the =bled of
,water supply for the proposed enlarged
'canal berieen Pittatoirgh and Eile, and
a number, of gentlemen connected with
the cold and shipping interests of this city
•have requested me to give them my opin•
'ion of the same for publication. with any
views of my own which may be appro
priate at this juncture, when an effort is
about to be made to establish a ship canal
•between the head of the Ohio and Lake
• Some or willreco ect that

the y through their
,filu W. W. Reed, to
notion, of the said
-of its proposed enlarge

Mr. Reed, and a report submitted, dated
December 23d, 1867; which was pub.
Sahel by the Company at the time. • It is
known also to many persons here that I
was the principal engineer in the service
of the State engaged in the construction
of that canal and its appendages., inclu
ding its feeder from French Creek, from
'1839 till 1841, and that afterwards, when
.the State transferred the works to the
Erie Canal Company, they, were comple-,
ted and put In use in 1845 under me di
rection as their Chief Engineer: , .
The matter or water supply being vital
in connection with canals, it received my,

Mr. Reed In his excellent papers above
referred to, sets forth clearly the reason
why they resorted to the construction of
a small lift lock on the summit. In order
to 1)0e a constant mu depth of water

was beanie the Company had never cut
down the summit level to the depth
originally planned. I cone= In opinion,
• with Mr, Reed from apeeleet- familiarity
with the ground and with the question,
that it Is entirely practicable to dredge
the summit, say seven feet lower than it
is now, and to maintain it at that depth.
With the canal completed throughout as
originally designed, with the enlarged
size of locks and canal as now proposed,

These locks, with seven feet depth of
water in the canal, will have : sufficient
capacity to pass boats a 'tn•ydirgXltred hun

suming for a perfectly safe calculation
that they should in practice carry on an
average but two hundred and fifty tons

and for 290 boating days 9,000,000 tons;
an enormous tonnage, one third of which
would be ansgniflcent. trade.

It is very gratifying to know this fact,
since it proves, In the most practical way,
that the calculation of the losalroaCome•

Mr. Ithed, in his paper now under con
sideration, adds one-fish to the daily loss
from evaporation and leakage, for an en
larged canal, and knowing all the cle
cemitanoes perfectly I 'regard this as
liberal and 'ample. This allows for the

cases as one boat passed, out another from
the opposite direction would pan In, thus
emptying the lock oily. once is passing
two boats; but taking the very liberaland
perfectly safe allowance of Mr. Reed, of
a lockful for each of the 144 boats; the
enlarged locks being lhir by 20 feet, and

Mr. Reed states that the lowest meas

during the pest eleven . years was over
15,000,000 cubic feet per day, which por
responds sufficiently with my' , thither
measurements, to satisfy ins that there la
never any month In the year when the
flow In 'French Creek at Remus' dam
averages less than 15,000,000 =hie , feet

with the immense tonnage assumed.
(9,000,000 tars In 250 days)i there would

Mr. SUMNER introduced a bill to ex.

I Led the prompt extinguishment of the
&KU of 1882, and upon a certain period of
notice, say six months, so that distant
holders in Europe may be advised that
the Interest of five-twenties of 1882 shall
cease, and the bonds be forthwith
deemed in coin. The six per cent. five.
twenties of 1882, amounting to upwards,
of 11500,000,00, would be refire-led Into
nye per cent. ten-fortles, whose payment
l ln moth was expressly stipulated by
the act authorising the issue. With a
new' Imbue of the latter limited
to $600,000,000, foreign holders of our
per cent. bands of 1582 would accept 5
per cent, bonds In lieu of coin, and so
media that loan sale hold at home may
be paid In coin, If. preferred by holders,
from the proceeds of an actual
I amount of five-twenties placed In
Europe at par for coin. Our 6 per cent.
bonds being limited In amount, after
being taken id par in preference to coin
will advance in value, so that the invest:
crient will become popular. National
credit will thus be maintained, the offer
being plain bonds or coin, giving the
world assurance of our dehermination.
'The answer will be u prompt as the of
fer, bonds and not coin. In regard to
National banks, which had done so much
to tarnish a uniform currency, two
things were necessary. The bonds de
posited by them with the Government
must be minced - in interest, and the sys
tem must be extended, so as to supply
much needed facilities, especially at the
west and south. The requirement from
all banks of new roar per mot tends at

and twenty-live millions of the national
debt Into four per cent., while the with
drawal of one dollar in greenbacks for
each additional dollar notes wilt go far
to extinguish outstanding green
backs, thus quietly removing Im
pediment to specie payment. The
bill sought to bring national obligations
to a par with coin, and to resume specie
payment , without effort, while our
bonds would be the-mast popular In the

The Lengthening Days and tee Strength
ening told—Now they Expiate It In
"As the days begin to lengthen the liold
begins to strengthen," says the old max
im,which has failed to come trite thus
'far this season. The days began to in
crease in length on the 23d ultimo, and
the gain up to the end of the year was
four minutes. It is true this is hardly
sufficient to make much difference either
way, and Jemmy may be necessary to
Tatty the old adage. Still, as the college
professor used to say, when his retorts
gave out or his apparatnarefusedto work;
"the experiment falls, but the principle
remains." There is a reason in "the
eternal fitness of things," why the cold
should begin to strengthen as the days
begin to lengthen, and as &general thing,.
we may expect such to be the case.,
The earth is a big body, -and, therefore,'
slow to get heated, and slow. to cool, and
it usually happens that the heat absorbed
from the sun during the summer in this
latitude does not wholly nab off till after .
Christmas or New Year. By that
time the latent warmth having dis
appeared, and the northern re, I
gion at least being covered with snow, I
chilling every breeze from that quarter,
winter leapt to set in in earnest. The
so to speak, of the cold is
then such that the heating influence of
the sun Is actually much less than might
be supposed. Oar own bodies, however,-
show an analagons working, since we re
unite less clothing in the autumn thanwe
do at the same temperature in the spring,
because in the one case we have an unused
up stock of heat, and in the other of cold..
I For the present Belson, certainly, the
heat accumulation has hung on remarka
well. The weather during the last
week has been as mild, and very mute
like th at of the middle of April. It ha`,
I been a trying time to regulate furnaces,
so as to keep them going, withoutopentnt

lent time for those who are not troubled I
with furnaces, but Wirer with getting

Justice. is represeited in his judicial
robes, with a scroll in:-his right hand.

Mn. libLnuorm of. the New Orleans
Piayune, has erected a monument to his
late associate, bearing this Inscription
"George Wilkins Kendall, born in New
Hampshire, August 22, 1809; died at Post .
Oak Spring, Texas, October 21, 1867:
printer, journalist, author, farmer—emi.
neat at all; clear head; stout heart;
strong hand; a man of many friends—.
most loved by those who knew him best."
RATS and mice swarm to an alarming
extent in the rice plantations, the potato
patches, the vineyards, and even the so.
ear cane fields of the Sandwich Islands.
Rice cultivation has bean abandoned in
some cases on account of their depreda-
Sone. They set the cats and owls at de
fiance, and poisons do not seem to thin
their numbers. For the purpose of,
exterminating the peas, an attempt was
lately made to introduce the rice-swamp
snakes of Java, but the Kanaka Legisla
ture fearing the coming of the serpent
devil they had read about In missionary
books, ordered the snakes to be thrown
overboard In the harbor of Honolulu.
