Tae Postal committee of the U. S.
Senate has reported a bill to carry
into effect the President's recomenda
tion that the government establish a
system of postal telegraphy. The bill
reported is the one known as the
Hubbard bill. It contemplates the
creation of a corporation to be call
ed the Postal Telegraph Compan,
which shall be the agent of the gov
ernmeut in the management of the
business. The main previsions of the
bill are that it fixes the price at one
cent per word for messages sent to
any point within a circuit of two hun
dred and fifty miles no message to
be 6ent for less than twenty-fire cents,
and puts the press rates down to sev-entv-five
cents per hundred words
within the same circuit of two hun
dred and fifty miles. Every postof
fice with which there is telegraphic
communication to have a telegraph
office attached. The bill is being
steadily opposed by the owners of the
present telegraph line, who have a
inoBopoIy, and the newspapers be
longing to the "associated press" who
shut out from their combination a
greater portion of the papers of the
country, thu making them tributary
to the journals of the association for
all their late news. The people are
entitled to cheap telegraphing as we!Iiof
as to cheap postage, and as the gov-
ernment conducts the transportation
of news by mail, more cheaply than
can be done by individual enterprise,
we are anxious to see communication
by telegraph placed on the same

A WHITE CHRISTMAS.
Christmas day was very quiet and
cold in the capital. The morning was
dull, nnd a snow storm commenced
here about one r. M., which continued
all night and most of the following
day. An old-fashioned winter is upon
us, the juercury lying lower and re
taining its downward tendency more
persistently than for several years
past, during the past six weeks. The
moisture or our climate, as compared
with that of northern and north-western
localities, causes us to suffer from
cold, and to require equal care in the
use of warm and heavy clothing
though the mercury seldom reaches
zero. Snow, with us", is nastiness, as it
affords little of the pleasures of the
sleigh, and many of the inconvenien
ces of slop and slush, besides many
limb-breaking invitations to strike fcr
ra firm a involuntarily. While the.
sleighing lasts with us, it is indulged
in by the favored few at $5 to $10 per
hour for indifferent turn-outs. Little
expectation and no certainty is enter
tained that any winter here will anord
a single opportunity to indulge in the
luxury. 1 lencc, few preparations and
the exorbitant charges. The snow
which has fallen has bee,n mingled
with rain and hail, and, from present
appearances, will stay with us but a
few neetinjr hours. Last Christinas
we sat here with raised windows.

They occasionally rush into print
when their peculiar views ore not
maintained in administration circles,
and then their extreme captiousness
and want of logical consistency be
travs the collar thev wear. In a re
cent communication to the Chronicle,
one of their number tried to use fig
ures in support of Warmoth. For
getting that figures never lie, he ad
mitted that the colored population
was at least equal to that of the
white in Louisiana, and that the reg
istration of IS JO showed a preponder
ance of the colored vote there. lie
then makes no allowance for tue
white Republican vote, but proceeds
to deduce the reasonableness of the
Warmoth majority from the fact that
in an equal division of the white and
black vote, a few voting the fusion
ticket would sustain the Warmoth
count. No better exhibit of the ab
surdity of the Warmoth claim of 7,
93G maioritv for Grcelev need be ask
ed. His conclusions depend upon his
mplied allegations that there were
no white votes polled in opposition to
Greeley and that all the Democratic
votes were polled for Greeley. Nei
ther of these propositions were true,
as is well attested, and the white Re
publican was at least ten times that
of the colored vote diverted to Grce
lev. This conclusion is arrived at by
takinff the figures and admissions of
the Warmoth committeemen, but it
is much safer to be governed by the
said registration of voters which
showed 20,000 more black than white
voters, but to give verity to the result
of the regularly constituted and re
cognized canvassers, viz: 14,024 for
Grant, it is not necessary that there
should be one more black than white
vote legally polled. The result in
other Southern States shows a crite
rion that accordin? to the proposition
of this delegate would more than ver
ify the regular return in favor of
Grant It is to be hoped that Con
gress will soon send these gentlemen
home, with fleas in their ears.
REVOKING POWF.RS or ATTORNET.
The order of the Secretary of the
Treasury, allowing claimants to re

fect only in the smaller class of cases,

A conference of attorneys here has
resulted in an agreement to put an

It is alleged that the telegraph

composed of attorneys and corres
pondents of leading Metropolitan

If this allegation proves true, and be
comes known soon enough, it will
probably effect an early passage of
the bill. In this event the price of
telegraphing will be reduced to the
public and the press generally about
two-thirds of the present rates, nd
the duty of promoting telegraphic fa
cilities will full, not upon the Govern

In crossing a trestle bridge about

up the train. As far as can be learn

Tho Scranton Iieuubliean on the
question of minority representation
and cumulative voting says :
There is minority representa
tion now ; if it were not so there
would not be a single Democrat in
the House of Representatives or Sen
ate. Notwithstanding the fact that the
Republicans carried the State by an
almost unprecedented majority, they
have only a majority of twenty in the
house and three in the Senate. It
must le conceded that the Democrats
are vastly in the minority in the
State ; they have nevertheless a good,
strong representation in either branch
of the Legislature. If this is nit mi
nority representation we should like
to know what is. Tho best remedy
is to choose district representatives.
Philadelphia gives Republicaaniajor
ities with great regularity, but she
does not send a solid Republican del
egation to the Legi.-lature. Although
Philadelphia sends eighteen members
to the Lower House of the Assembly,
no voter in the city votes for more
than one, for the reason that the city
is divided into eighteen districts,
ami the voters in each elect their own
carfrdidatcs. Thus both parties are
represented in Philadelphia. That is
the kind of representation we are in
favor of throughout the State. In
stead of a "mixed up" system of vot
ing, such as the cumulative system,
give us diilriil representation. We
have the district system in that city,
but it should be extended to every
county in the State. The number of
members of the Leri.-lature will
doubtless be increased by the new
Constitution, and the number of dis
tricts should correspond with thenum
ber of members, each voter voting for
but one man. This would be direct

Last evening the Sabbath school at

The fir Kprenda to Other Building
-The Sloat iInr;li AilmI IVrlsih.
New York, December 24. The
Hippotheatrion, formerly occupied by
L. B. Lent as a circus, and leased
this season by P. T. Barnum, was
burnt to the ground this morning.
The fire originated in the engine
room. The whole structure was in
flame's in a few minutes after the fire
was discovered. Shortly after four
this morning, the watchman, Andrew
Nelson, discovered flames in the
boiler room among the apparatus for
heating the building. He first saw
smoke issuing from a trap door, and,
ignorant probably of the extent of the
mischief, attempted to extinguish the
fire by throwing water upon it. The
flames were seen by officer Raymond,
of the fifteenth precinct, about four
o'clock, over where the giraffes were
kept. The officer immediately ran to
the nearest box, and sounded the
alarm. The second and third alarm
was sent out. When the alarm was
given, nine men, who slept in tho
building and had charge of the men
agerie were immediately aroused, and
the most strenuous efforts were made
to save the unfortunate animals, but
cage the flames spread toorapidly. The
containing tho giraffes was broken
open, but the beasts were too fright
ened to escape, and even if they had,
it is thought they would have perish
ed of cold before they could have
been housed elsewhere. Had there
been ten miuutes more many of the
brutes could have been set loose.
The performing elephant, Jeannette,
and the little one, Gypsie, were saga
cious enough to avail themselves of
the opportunity afforded them and
were both rescued. A large elephant
recently imported, refused to stir and
perished in the flames. Two camels
were also rescued, although with the
greatest difficulty. A very short
time had elapsed since thj discovery
of the fire, but the circus building
burnt like tinder and it v as impossi
ble to remain in it. The Fire De
partment attended with its usual
promptitude and worked zealously
and well, but the flames had ' gained
too powerful a mastery. U was a
fearful night, the cold was intense, tho
thermometer standing four degrees
above zero, while a biting wind swept
through Fourteenth street. It was
soon apparent that tho adjoining
buildings were in greiit danger, in
cluding the Academy of Music, and
the second alarm was given. Fresh
engines soon arrived ou the scene,
but the lire continued to spread and
the destruction of the entire block
was imminent At this moment
THE DIN WAS Al'PALUNU.
Tho roars of the lions and tigers, as
they writhed in agony, mingled with
the deatb-shriekes of other wild ani
mals, while above all were heard the
deep trumpeting of the unfortunate
Meanwhile tho fire was raging with
increased violence, the whole building
being wrapt in flame, and it became !
evident that there was no ehanco for
the escape of edifices that stood con
tiguous to it 1 he fire continued to
rase fearfullv until nine o'clock this
morning, when it was controlled by
the firemen. The first buildings to
catch were the workshops of Miner
& Stevens, 115 tol21 East Thirteenth
street. The.ce ; were followed bv
Grace Chapel Protestant Church, and
then Grotcs' billiard and ivory goods
show rooms caught. The Academy
of Music was on fire at several points,
where the wood work caught, and
only the direction of the wind and a
plentiful supply oT water saved it,
while the roofs o houses to the
leeward of the fire on Thirteenth
street aayd on Third avenue caught
and forced tho police of the Seven
teenth and Sixteenth Prccinct.1 to
alarm the occupants of every house
within several blocks of the fire. The
fate of the east side of the town was
not decided until nearly seven o'clock
when the firemen became aware of
the situation. The losses can scarce
ly be even approximated at present
The animals destroyed arc invaluable
as they cannot be replaced, and Mr.
Barnum laid out $50,000 a few
months ago on the building. The
great showman is, however, heavily
insured. He is at present in New
Orleans with his othep show. The
losses of Mr. Grote are estimated at
$150,000 ; Grace Chapel was worth
at least $50,000 and is a total loss.
The dwelling house adjoining Grace
Chape -was valued at $20,000; the
loss of Miner & Stevens is suppos
ed to be heavy, probably alwut $40,
000. Tho loss of Mr. Barnum is es
timated to-day by Mr. S. B. Hurd, his
treasurer, at $300,000. His insurance
it is impossible to ascertain at this
hour as the safe with the policies arc
in the ruins. Of this proportion
about $fi0,000 was expended recently
in reconstructing the buildings. The
natural history collection, it is claim
ed, was the most valuable in ' this
country. The giraffes burned cost
$80,000, and were the only ones in
this country. The sea lions were
also the only ones at present in the
United States. Mr. Barnum gave
employment to one hundred and fifty
persons, one hundred of whom were
employed in the ajrenio department
None of the horses were burned as
they arc stabled in Thirteenth street
An elephant belonging to Geo. F.
Bailey's circus which was imported
but last week, was also burned. The
wardrobes of,, the members of the
company were also burned. ..Follow
ing are the greatest losers: James
Melville, Dalzell and Millson, Wash
ington Antonio, Augustus Lee,
Madame Doervillc, - Phillo Nathan
and wife, and Liss Brothers. Fol
lowing is the list of animals burned :
lour giraffes, two white polar bears,
two monster sea lions; one horned
horse, seals, Alpine goat, ostrich, peli
cans, two Abyssinian lions, two
Bengal tigers, one Asiatic vak, one
eland, one llama, leopards, serpents,
apes, gorillas, two dromedaries, one
elephant, a happy family, and other
minor animals, amounting to one hun
dred specimens. Mr. F. Grote & Co.
arc insured for $140,000. Their two
buildings cost about $05,000, but
their chief loss was en the immense
stock of ivory. The safe fell through
to the cellar, and is now in debris.
I hey claim that thev could have
saved many thousand dollars worth
of stock had the firemen permitted
tucm, but tuey were compelled to
leave, large bodies of billiard balls,
etc., to burn. The aggregate loss by
fire is about $1,000,000. It is rumor
ed that Barnum had only $50,000 in
surance on his animals, and that the
two elephants saved will cover half
that amount Mr. Barnum's insur
ance on building and contents is in
the neighborhood of $90,t)00. Mr. S.

ures, ine report lor November oi

.Thirty Mm ImU
Erie, Pa., December 2(5. The im
mediate cause of the accident at
Prospect Station was a broken flange
on the tender wheel. About sixty
rods west of the station i3 a trestle
work some tweutv feet high, over
which the locomotive and tender of
tho eastern bound express passed in
safety, but the baggage and passen
ger cars, only two coaches being in
the train, were thrown from the tres
tle, fell thirty feet and struck top
downward. The weight of the trucks
crushed in the cars, closing up the
windows, and to render the situation
even . more terrible the passenger
coach was partly tied upon its sido so
that for the occupants of that side
there were absolutely no means of es
cape. Almost immediately the cars
took fire, tins passenger cars burning
at both ends. Some half dozen per
sons waiting at tho station wero soon
at the scene of the accident, but they
worked at an immense disadvantage.
No water could be had, and the snow
that was scrajwd up had little effect
in staying the flames. Only two axes
were available, and thcwood-woi k of
the cars was bolted together so firmly
and intricately that but little head
way could be made with them. All
the time these efforts were being put
forth the flames were steadily gain
ing, and the shrieks of the imprison
ed victims, as the scorching beat en
veloped them, was appalliug to
the stoutest hearts. Now and then a
ropo was put shrough a crevice and
a sufferer pulled out by main strength.
Sometimes it would be a lifeless body,
and charred arms, legs or head would
drop off in the struggle. In three or
tour instances the head was thus sep
arated from the trunk, and in as ma
ny more cases the body was bereft of
its limbs. Tho body of .a lady was
thus rescued from the flames, the
head and one arm snapping off like a
piece of charcoal, while the other arm
was untouched, a dainty kid glove
covering the hand and her fingers
wearing their jeweled ornaments.
The body will doubtless be recognized
by the aid of tho rings. But for
these it would have Wen impossible
to identify it. The bodies of threeother
ladies were taken out, neither of
which it is believed can be recognized
by friends. In ell it is estimated
that fully ten of the nineteen forms
removed from the burning car are un
recognizable. It is supjioseed that
in addition to the bodies recovered a
number of others were consumed in
the burning car, and that nothing but
their blackened bones will be discov
ered when the fire is extinguished and
ashes raked over. Adding these to
the number injured that will die, it is
estimated the total number of lives
lost wiil uot fall short of thirty." The
whole number of persons in the car
at the time of the accident was about
forty-five. Frank Taylor, of Corry,
was leaning against some object, and
seeing an acquaintance passing cuH
ed him by name.: Tho friend turned
around and saw Taylor apparently
uninjured, but suddenly he . said,
"Tell my wife," and fell over dead.
He must have died from some internal
injury, but inmates of the burning
car were shrieking for aid, and Mr.
Taylor's friend did not see him again
until his corpse wub brought in and
placed with the others whilo the
groans of the dying were stilled in
death. The stench arising from tho
burning bodies is said to have been
sickening. With no means of extin
guishing the flames, the heat being
too intense to admit of all the bodies
being, extricated, nothing could be
done by the spectators but to stand
quietly and sec the remains slowly
At the inquest Henry Miller and J.
J. Marka iuuttfied that tho Irain ran
very fast. 1 W. H. Lee and others
contradicted it. The fireman savs
five miles per hour. Orville Swift, of
Corry, who was on the train, has rtt
been recognized. Two of tbc four
bodies unrecognized arc a shapeless
mass. Dousrlas who was in the car
twenty-five minutes says several
were killed outright, others writhing
about until killed by suffocation.
Sonic were conscious till burned to
death. Inquest adjournel to Satur

A Curious Case of Strvtln.
Cincinnati, December 22. Eliza
beth Bciri, a match peddler in this
city for the past twenty-five or thirty
years, and known bs "Match Mary,"
was found dead in her room this
morning. She had evidently ' been
dead four or five days, and according
to the coroner's inquest, died, from ex
posure and starvation. The room in
which she lived was comfortably fur
nished, but at times she made her
bed on chairs, saving a bed plentiful
ly supplied with covering for her son
(a boy sixteen years old), now an in
mate of the house of refuge. The
coroner's examination elicited the fact
that she was possessed of real estate
valued at $0,000, and in an old trunk
was found $5000 in money and prom
missory notes to the amount of $,921.

On Monday morning a murderous
affair occurred on lee Creek, about
fifteen miles from here and two miles
from Marion. For some time there had
been a misunderstanding between the
families of Henry Wilson and his
neighbors, the Broughtons, which
culminated on Sunday in a difficulty,
in which a son of the Broughtons
used violence towards Wilsons chil
dren. Wilson, early Monday morn
ing, started to. the justice of the peace
intending to procure a warrant for
their arrest Passing Broughton's
house, he was called back by them,
and entering the yard soon became
engaged in a bitter quarrel. Win.
Broughton swore he would shoot
Wilson. Entering the house and
getting his gun, he came out evident
ly to execute his threat ; Wilson, who
was a large man, while Broughton is
crippled and goes on crutches, clinch
ed with him and took the gun away,
when Broughton drew from beneath
his coat a large butcher-knife and
stabbed Wiison in the body, the knife
entering its whole length. Wilson
lingered only half an hour and died.
Broughton took to the woods, intend
ing to escape to Kentucky after night.
At night he was very cold and stop
ped at Dr. Kriesley's to warm, where
Deputy Sheriff Miller, who happened
to be in that section on other busi
ness, also, stopped for the same pur
pose. On knocking at the door he
was made to tell his name before
being allowed to enter, and then the
doctor asked him if he had a criminal
warrant. 'As Miller had 'heard of
the case, this aroused his suspicions.
and he soon ferreted Broughton out
and brought ' hint to iail the same
night ' :' ' .
