latest Reports from Leading
An important suit in regard to the responsi
bility of u-legraph companies has jitst been
decided in Louisiana. James Craugle sued the
Western Union Telegraph Company for a loss
of $210 which he had sustained in consequence
of an error made by a telegiaph operator in
sending his message. The counsel for the com
pany claimed that the original dispatch, which
Avas produced in court, was so badly written
that tho operator was not responsible for the
mistake in transmission, and also claimed pro
tection tinder the printed contract on the mes
sage, particularly that portion regarding tho
repeating of the same. The court decided that
a telegraph company cannot by special contract
relieve itself from responsibility for the faults
or negligence of its servants, and also that "a
condition in a contract that a telegraph com
pany shall not be responsible for errors or neg
ligence of its servants unless a message is re
peated, and then only to the extent of the cost
of repeating such message, is an unjust and
unreasonable condition, and cannot bo en
forced." Tho bill introduced in the House by Repre
sentative McCoid to provide "forthe regulation
of commerce by rail among the States, and for
the protection of the people from extortion and
oppression, and for tho protection of capital in
vested in railways from maladministration and
railway wars," provides that each railway shall,
on March 1 of each year, publish a schedule of
rates. Fifty per cent, of the schedule of rates
shall be the minimum of rates, and 50 per ccut.
above the maximum allowed to be charged in
any case. These rates are to be fixed upon tho
principle of impartial service for a fair corpo
rate profit from honest public service. Consoli
dating, discriminating, and pooling are prohib
ited and to be punished. A committee of nine
members, one from each judicial circuit in tho
"United States, shall be appointed by each Con
gress to supervise, investigate, and report to
Congress as to the management and control of
Tail ways under the law, and recommend amend
The Ce isus Office has issued a bulletin giving
the statistics of illiteracy in the various States.
There arc 36,761,607 persons in the United
States of ten years of ago and upwards, and of
these -1,223,451 (13.4 per cent.) cannot read, and
fi,239,954 (17 per cent.) cannot write. Of tho
white people above ten years of age 9.4 per cent.
are unable to write, and of the colored people 70
percent. In the Carolinas the percentage of illit
eracy is 4S.2, in Louisiana 45.6, in Georgia 42.3,
and in Mississippi 41.9. The States in which
the percentage of illiteracy is smallest are:
Iowa, 2.4; Maine, 3.5; Kansas and Ohio, 3.G;
Minnesota, 3.7; Michigan, 3.8; Wisconsin, ,4.
The most illiterate population in the United
States is that of New Mexico, where 60 per
cent, of the people are unable to read.
The Marietta and Cincinnati Railroad wa3
Eold at Chillicothe, O., Saturday, under fore
closure of bond mortgages and decree of sale
by order of the Court of Common Pleas of Chil
licothe, Ross county, O. The decree was en
tered by the court on October 24. The road
was rppraised at $6,551,825, and the law re
quired that it should be sold for not less than
two-thirds of the .appraised value. The pur
chaser was Robert Garrett, of Baltimore, the
only bjdd'-r. for $1,375,000. The road, with its
branehi-F, comprises about 255 miles, of which
about thirty miles is seldom used, being aban
doned l)rranoc- of a short cut at the Ohio River
extremity of the road. A reorganization of tho
road is expected.
The Hudson's Bay Company was formerly
the head ol the fur trade, and at one time vir
tually monopolized the markets of Europe and
America, Russia excepted; but tho business of
this company has greatly decreased of late, and
now the corporation known as tho American
Commercial Company takes tho lead. Last
year this company sold in tho London market
about 87,000 sealskins. It monopolizes tho
sealskins of Alaska, under a contract with tho
United States Government, which allows it to
kill one hundred thousand seals a year. Tho
87,000 mentioned, however, were the accmula
tions of other seasons.
An application has been made to tho Attorney-General
of New York to begin an action
against the Western Union Telegraph Com
pany to enforce the legal penalty for the viola
tion of various statutory obligations. In tho
complaint it is proposed that the charter of the
company shall bo vacated and its corporate
existence annulled, and that its directors shall
be compelled to account for the fa management
of the funds and property committed to their
charge, and to pay to tho corporation or its
creditors the money and the value of the prop
erty which they have transferred to others, lost
and wasted by violation of their duties."
Several of tho leading companies and opera
tors engaged in tho production of petroleum in
Pennsylv:mia have signed an agreement to
Flop drilling from December 15 to May 15.
These operators own and control 3,000 acres of
what, it is believed, will be rich oil territory,
in Forest county, and they hold that tho de
velopment of any new field would have a de
pressing effect on the market. They believe
that by keeping this large area und rilled the
old fields will have so far declined in their
production as to make a new one a necessity,
and that prices will then be so much higher
that even small pumping wells maybe operated
at a large profit.

An account is given in Euglish journals of
the performance of a locomotive on the Groat
Northern ILiilroad, which recently carried tho
Duke of Edinburgh from Leeds to London,
1SG? miles, in three hours, or at the rate of
sixty-two miles per hour. This speed has fre
quently leen equalled and sometimes surpassed
for short distances. The engine had driving
wheels eight feet in diameter, or two feet larger
than th- wheels of American engines.
Tho Washington Flnr puts it in this way:
How nijiiy farms arc there in the United
States? 4,00-,U07. How many dwellings in
city and country? 8,955,512. Which State has
the most farms, and how many? Illinois, with
255,741. What is the total number of farm ani
mals? 130,972,673. Whut do they comprise,
and tho number of each? Swine, 47,683,951;
sheep, 35,191,656; milch cows, 12,113,952: work
ing oxen, 993.970; other cattle, 22,1SS,590;
horses, 10,337,951 ; mules and asses, 1,812,932.
The new combination letter-sheet and envel
ope, and folding postal card, which havo been
authorized by the Government, will probably
be in circulation in January. Tho inventor of
tho combination has received an order for
20,000,000 of them; tho price being .$S0,000.
The letter-sheet is about the size of ordinary
letter paper. When written upon it is folded
twice from tho bottom and once from tho right
hand side, which makes it the size of an ordin
ary envelope. The folding postal card is half
tho size of tho letter sheet and has only a
gummed flap at the top.
The Louisville Courier-Journal declares that
last week was a "red-letter week" in tho his
tory of its proposed great Southern exposition,
to bo held in 183. During tho six days the
subscriptions in aid of tho exhibition aggre
gated $100,710; the subscriptions from tho
merchants ranging from $50 to $500, whilst the
railroad corporations and largo manufacturing
firms responded with much larger subscrip
tions. New York having made the Erie Canal free,
there is agitation in Ohio in favor of abolishing
the canal tolls on the canals of that State. Tho
cost of sustaining these canals is only $275,000
yearly, so that tho State would not assume
much of a burden in making their navigation
free. It is probable the question of abolishing
the tolls will be considered in the Ohio Legis
lature the prcsont winter.
THE STOCK MARKET.
Rctlew of the Week in Wall Street and Closing
Special to The Nationnl Tribune.
New Yokk, Dec. 13. Our market to-day has
been entirely in the hands of tho bulls. Our
correspondents will remember that when this
railroad war first assumed a serious aspect their
attention was called to the large purchases
of Omaha stocks which wero attributed to Mr.
Vanderbilt, and that wo had every reason to
suppose that ho on this occasion was on the
side of peace, the war of rates not being of his
own making. We also expected that he would
use his influence to settle the diiliculty. Tho
result of the last few days has proved the cor
rectness of our supposition, and that the whole
arrangement of this trouble has been duo to
his intervention, influenced by his largely in
creased interest in Omaha stocks. The result
of this settlement has been a very strong mar
ket in Omaha stocks, in which the balance of
the list has shared. Wo may call the attention
of our friends to the fact, however, that the
market as it exists is very much of a one-man
affair, which should induce great caution. We
think prices of to-day are as Jiigh as they
should be, granting all the arguments advanced
by the bulls, and the position is now no better
than before the war became a factor. Unless
the great element of public buying commences
again, wo cannot see that much change has
been effected in tho situation. Money 56

Hitherto a low-priced watch has been the very poorest
of Investments; bein; of no value as a lime-keeper, and
a constant source of expense and annoyance to it.s owner.
The WATI'.UmiltY A'H'JI will be found 11
marvel of simplicity, accuracv, and cheapness.
MAI l'l,"C, liei-aiiK1 it ifc((niioMd of less than one-half
the usual uuinlicr of purls in a watch, which are so
arranged as to be easily cleaned or tepaired.
At'CLK ATM, because it will run twenty-four hours,
and keep tune equal to tbe lieiter jirailcs of watches.
