L . jest Keports from Leading
Shys ilo Philadelphia Tints: A telegraph
company which promises to tlo jreat things in
the way of sending messages rapidly, safely,
cheaply aud correctly has published notice of
its intention to apply for a charter in this State.
It is a New York organization, is called tho
Postal TeleerapH. Company, and intends pri
marily lo build a line irom Xew Yorlc to Chi
cago, taking in Philadelphia, and afterward to
extend its system all over the country. It was
organized in New York June 21, 1331, and, it is
said, already has about 700 miles of poles
erected, on which wires are being strung as
rapidly as possible. It is expected to have tho
line completed as far as Cleveland by the first
of January. This company announces that it
will work on new principles, one of which will
lie a wire compounded of a steel core, heavily
electro-plated with copper, thus securing a con
ductivity seven times as great as can be hud by
an iron wire of the same thickness and securing
also freedom from rust, with great tensile
strength. Another improvement will bo tho
use of the Leggs automatic and Gray harmonic
system of telegraphing, -which secure the same
results as the duplex and quadruples systems
now in uf but to a greater degree. It is
claimed that by using these appliances two of
the Postal Company's wires will have a, greater
capacity than sixty iron wires operated by the
Horse system, and also that messages can be
sent direct from Xew York to Pan Francisco or
can be repeated automatically, as may be found
desirable. The new system is called the " Postal
Telegraph," because among the objects proposed
is a plan by which long messages, letters, etc.,
mav bo sent over the wires and delivered
through the post office, tho rates being put so
low as to make this practicable. It's officers say
they intend to bury tho wires in passing
through every city thoy touch, aud laugh at
the idea that they willhavo any trouble in
A London dispatch of the 4th instant says:
Tho English syndicate, which was represented
in the "United States recently by Sir Philip H.
Clark, to-day completed the purchase of 32,000
acres of laud from the Florida Land Company
and the Okeechobee Drainage Company. This
is in addition to the purchase of 27,000 acres
made by Sir Philip last month. The lands are
situated in Polk aud Orauge counties, Florida,
and the price paid is $1.30 per acre. Other
capitalists in England have offered to buy
50,000 shares of tho Okeechobee Drainage Com
pany's stock, and a prominent banking house
here has written to the United States for tho
best terms for from 100,000 to 200,000 acres of
land belonging to the companies headed by Mr.
Disston, Mr. Huey, and other Philadelphians.
Sir Philip Clark, accompanied by A. B. Liuder
jnan, who has represented Florida enterprises
in London since 1SS0, returned from tho United
States last week.
The annual meeting of tho stockholders of
the New York, Lako Erie and Western Kail
road Company was hold in New York city on
Tuesday. President Hugh J. Jcwett's annual
report showed the gross earnings for the year
ended Sept. 3th. 1S32, to havo been $19,975,773,
and thf net c;:7iings$'G,S37,G30. Receipts from
other sour-"s bring the total net income of
the couopa-iy u; to $7,227,010. Tho working
expenses w-re Gi3 per cent, of the earnings.
The bonds ou;. standing which mature March 1,
1&3, arc i-1,852,000, and bear 7 per cent, inter
est. They w'.ll be extended for forty years at
4 percent., which will result in an annual
saving of $121,00. The old board authorized
the payment of the interest on the income
bonds and a dividend of G per cent, on the
preferred stock for the year 1SS2.
The New York, Pittsburg and Chicago
Hailroad Company is about to begin work upon
a road which will virtually give a new trunk
line between the East and "West. A line is
completed from Pittsburg, Pa., to Marion,
Ohio, a distance of 177 miles, connecting at
Marion with tho Chicago and Atlantic Rail
road, now almost completed and under the full
control of the Erie Railroad. The company
also contemplates a direct lino to Drift
od, Pa., and Salamanca, X. Y., thereby se
curing a short-line connection with Philadel-
hia and New York. The company has pur
chased a large amount of steel rails, and has
f00 men en route to complete the road between
"YVaupun, Pa., and New Lisbon, Ohio.
At the beginning of November the reduction
of the publicjdebt for the twelve months im
mediately preceding that date had been more
than $157,000,000, or an average of more than
$13,000,000 a month. For the four months im
mediately preceding that date the reduction
had been more than $30,000,000, or an average
of $15,000,000 a month. The public debt state
ment, issued December 1st, shows that the re
duction last month was only a little more than
$5,500,000, aud the average monthly reduction
during the remainder of the fiscal year will
probably not exceed $S,000,000.
Two Cincinnati tobacco factories have stopped
operations, and others will follow their exam
ple. Some of them may run to the extent of
one-third or one-fourth of their capacity, but
there is a general understanding that the pro
duction of manufactured tobacco is to bo re
duced to the minimum. The reason for this
course is that fears are entertained that the tax
-will be taken oil' of tobacco, and manufacturers
do not dare to carry heavy stocks.
Three of the departments of the Jolict (111.)
Steel Company shut down on the 1st. The
Converter Steel-Rail Mill and tho Merchant
Iron Mills' great blast furnaces are still going.
About 700 znan are thrown out of employment.
Notices are posted up that the departments
named would be closed until the first of the
year. No doubt the mills will resume work
then, provided a satisfactory adjustment of
wages can be made with the men.
The number of hogs slaughtered and salted
by Chicago packers since November 1 is GsD.OOO,
against 860,000,000 for the corresponding period
a year ago. The receipts at the Chicago livo
stock yards for November were 107,593 cattle,
733,733 hogs, (W.570 sheep, aud 2,100 horses
As compared with tho same month of last year
there is an increase of 29,931 cattle, and a de
crease of 125,'iGl hogs.
The National Dairy'Fair at Milwaukeo was
opened Tuesday. Ex-Gov. Win. E. Smith, of
Wibcon&in, and others delivered addresses,
whi-h w- re responded to by Austin Belknap,
of V. t :i. Tho arrangements are completed
in v. r detail, and tho exhibits of butter and
elite j viil be the finest ever seen there. The
cash prises aggregate $5,000 and there are two
gold melals and diplomas for dairy products.
The St. Louis Republican, from considerable
data which it regards as reliable, estimates this
gear's cotton crou at 7,000.000 balos, against
G,436;000 last year aud G,5S9,000 bales the year
before. The largest crop raised before the war
was that of 1S39-'G0 -i.SGl.OOO bales. The work
of picking is going actively forward, but there
is a scarcity of hands.
Jlradsfreet's Journal reports -12G failures last
week in the United States, 15 more thau the
preceding week, and 23 more than in the cor

remedy for the speedy aud permanent cure for
Consumption, Bronchitis, Catarrh, Asthma, and
all throat aud lung affections, also a positive
and radical euro for nervous debility and all
nervous complaints, after having tested its
wonderful curativo powers in thousands of
cases, has felt it his duty to make it known to
his suffering fellows. Actuated by this motive
and a desire to relievo human suffering, I will

recipe, in German, French, or English, with
full directions for preparing and using. Sent

THE STOCK MARKET.
RctIctt of tho Week In Wall Street and Closing
' I'll CPU.
Specinl to The National Tribune
New York, Dec. Gth, 1382. The market
opened strong this morning, and continued so
during the early hours. Dullness was tho
chief feature at midday, and at the closo the
highest prices was attained. Wo can explain
this condition of affairs by giving the reason
ings which induced the traders and tho public
which follow in their wakes to buy stocks to
day. The morning papers reported that Mr.
Yandorbilt was yesterday a borrower on Gov
ernments to tho extent of $3,000,000 ergo, if
he was a borrower of such a largo amount of
money, ho must have been a correspondingly
large buyer of storks, and it was rumored that
Omaha was the stork particularly receiving his
attention. Assuming this to be a fact, it was
supposed that he had means of knowing that
thcro was a possibility of settlement of the
difficulties in which the Orauha road is in
volved, or that he intended, by appearing as a
large holder of the slock, to lend his influence to
a peaceful solution of the vexed question. We
give this for what it is worth. Money was
somewhat sharper at G per cent.
