Effect of Cold on Iron nnd Steel Kail-..
Some interesting experiments have been
made in England and Sweden, under the su
pervision of eminent scientists,relative to the
effect which the cold weather exerts upon
the rails of iron and steel which are used
for railroads. Coutrary to the popular im
pressions, it is found that, when the ther
mometer is at zero, the iron and steel are
about three per cent, stronger, and capa
ble of bearing about that proportion more
of weight, than at sixty degrees fahrenheit,
or ordinary temperature.
The reason assigned for tho more fre
quent snapping of rails in the cold season
is that they lie embedded in frozen ground,
and the impact of the weight on the rails
and their connections is increased by this
rigid support. These experiments may
possibly lead, at some future time, to some
means of prevention for this frequent cause
of railway disaster.
Colonel Mosby has certainly vindicated
himself from the unjust suspicions so freely
expressed before the late election as to Ins
motive in favoring the election of General
Grant instead of that of Mr. Greeley. He
went with his state once to its damage and
his own, and he thought it but right that
his state should go with him in repairing
the wrong. Ho regarded the rebellion as
played out, and believed that the
sooner Virginia identified herself
with the loyal sentiment of
the country the sooner the scars of the
war could be effaced and the chasm closed. !
He received, in consequence of his action, •
from some of the still disloyal men of his '
state, the treatment usually accorded to '
Republicans iv the south, although he made '
no professions of Republicanism. In again '
declining public office at the hands of the '
President, as he did a few days since, he '
admitted that one motive was to vindicate '
himself from unjust suspicions at home.—
Hands Off.—The Roman correspond
ent of the French Journal Univers writes I
that the Pope has received communications
from several powers, informing him that
the powers in question look upon the re-es
tablishment of the legitimate monarchy in !
France as only a question of time. All
Europe is beginning to see the necessity ol
curbing the ambition of Prussia and bring
ing Italy to reason, and this can only be
done by the restoration of Henry V. This

The Case oe W. J. Anable.—The
jury in the case of W. J. Anable, cbaiged
with obtaining money under false pre
tenses, returned a verdict of guilty, this
morning, and ascertained the punishment
at three years in the penitentiary, the
shortest time allowed by law. We under
stand that the jury stood last night five
for acquittal, five for conviction, two doubt
ful. They reported themselves unable to
agree this morning, but after instructions
from tho judge upon certain points
involved, returned the verdict of guilty.
Defendant's counsel immediately entered a
motion for a new trial, which will be ar
gued on Saturday. If this motion is over
ruled, tho case will be taken to tho supreme
court of appeals.
C. Ciiauncey Burr's Lectures.—
C. Chauncey Burr, esq., of New Jersey,
will deliver a course of six lectures at
Asssem'ily Hall, in this city, beginning on
the 10th proximo, on the "Typical Races
of Men." Mr. Burr is one of the ablest
lecturers and boldest thinkers now in the
field, and is everywhere greeted by large
audiences. In Wilmington, Delaware,
where he has been lecturing recently, he
received the highest compliments from the
press and the intelligent public. His lee- '
tore refuting Darwin's theory was espe
cially well received. One paper says he
spoke for two hours, and there was no
person in the audience who would not
gladly have sat two hours longer. We
feel sure that large audiences await Mr.
Burr in Richmond.
Petition to Abolish Capital
Punishment.—A committee consisting
of Asa M. Janny and Joseph Nichols, of
Loudoun, and 0. Gillingham, of Fairfax,
appointed by the yearly meeting of Friends
at Baltimore in October last, visited both
houses of the General Assembly yesterday
afternoon, and presented a petition for tbe
abolition of capital punishment. The peti
tion was properly referred in each house,
and the Friends met the committees this
morning for consultation with regard to
the maitcr. We are reliably informed that
the Senate committee will report in favor
of leaving the matter discretionary with
juries, but that the House committee will
report against granting the prayer of the
Personal.—Rev. Dr. A. S. Bettel

Hector Davis, of Goochland county, is

Deaths Last Week.—The number
ot deaths in the city for the week ending
Saturday last is reported at forty-eight,
besides three stillborn. One death from
small-pox is reported.
The president of the board of health
made tho following report yesterday:
"Eight cases of variolous disease reported
for the week ending 25th instant, of which
four were small-pox and four were
varioloid—five of these patients neglected
to avail themselves of vaccination, and all
in one house; two of the other cases
occurred in a family where tho disease
The Report about Joseph Bam
ber.—We had a conversation this morn
ing with Colonel Strother, superintendent
of the penitentiary, and was glad to hear
him deny in the most emphatic manner
the reported severe whipping and death of
Joseph Bamber, a convict from Rocking
ham county. He says Bamber has been
an exemplary prisoner ever since his in
carceration, and has neither deserved nor 1
received so much as a cross word from ,
any one in authority about the institution.
Arrested and Discharged.—Mr. !
Cornelius Mantillo was taken before Com- 1
missioner Pleasants to-day, charged with
passing a $20 counterfeit note on A. Koss
low. Mr. Mantillo said he got the note
from a gentleman named McGhee, which
Mr. McGhee corroborated, and the latter
gentleman got it from "a fine, gentlemanly
looking man" at the Chesapeake and Ohio
railroad depot, who asked him to change
the bill for him. Mr. Mantillo was hono
An Explanation.—C. T. Smith,
esq., member of the House of Delegates,
writes us a note to say that the embezzle
ment bill was passed by the House by a
largo majority, and not dismissed, as re
ported in this paper. A bill of similar
import was, however, dismissed. The bill
in relation to the property rights of
women, reported by us as having been
dismissed by the House, was dismissed
because another now pending accomplishes
t le same objects.
Amusements this Week.—The
amusements offered to the Dublic of Rich
mond this week consists of the fine vocal
and instrumental concert at the Theatre
to-morrow night, lor the benefit of a former
citizen now ill with consumption, and two
concerts, Friday and Saturday nights, at
Assembly Hall, by Dunrez & Benedict's
minstrels, notices of which will be found
under the appropriate head in our paper.
Session to be Extended.—The
Conservative members of the General
Assembly, in caucus last night, deter
mined to extend tho session beyond the
fourth of March for so much of the thirty
days as may be found necessary to com
plete the important legislation. Both
Houses to-day resolved to extend the ses
sion not to exceed tvirty days.
Inspector of Buildings.—We do
not pretend to pass judgment upon the or
dinance reported to the council Monday
night creating tho office of inspector ol
buildings, but unhesitatingly say that the
interests of the public demand that an
ordinance of that description should be put
in force at the earliest practical moment.
Inquest in the County.—Esquire
Jacobs. Atlee held an inquest over the
dead body of an unknown man found in
tho James river soma distance below the
City, yesterday. The verdict of the jury
was that he came to his death by drown
ing. The body was interred near lehere
it was found.

Louisiana Affairs—President's Me>.
Washington, rebruary 25.—The
President sent the following message to
"To the Senate and House of Representatives I
"Your attention is respectfully invited
to the condition of affairs in the state- of
Louisana. Grave complications have
grown out of the election there on the 6th
of November last, chiefly attributable, it
is believed, to an organized attempt, on
the part of those controlling the election
of officers and returns, to defeat, in that
election, the will of the electors of the
"Different persons are claiming the ex
ecutive offices, two bodies are claiming to
be the Legislative assembly of the state,
and the confusion and uncertainty prodced
in this way fall with paralyzing effect
upon all its interests. Controversy arose
as soon as the election occurred over its
proceedings and results, but I declined to
interfere until a suit involving this contro
versy to some extent was brought in the
circuit court of the United States under
and by virtue of tha act of May 31st,
1870. entitled'an act to enforce the righ'g
of citizens of the United States to vote in
the several states of the Union and for
"Finding that resistance was made to
judicial process in that suit without any
opportunity, and in my judgment without
any right, to review the judgment ot the
court upon the jurisdiction or the ques
tions arising in tho case, I directed the
United States marshal to enforce such
process and to use, if necessary, troops for
that purpose, in accordance with the 13th
section of said act, which prevides that it
shall be lawful for the President of the
United State 3to employ such part of the
land or naval forces of the United States or
of tne militia as shall be necessary to aid
in the execution of judicial process under
"Two bodies of persons claim to be the
returning board for the state, and the cii
cuit court, in that case, decided that tho
one to which Lynch belonged, usually de
signated by his name, was the lawful re
turning board, and this decision has been
repeatedly affirmed by the district aud the
supreme courts of the state. Having no
opportunity or power to canvass the votes,
and the exigencies of the ca.>e demanding
an immediate decision, I concluded it to be
my duty to recognize those persons as
elected who received and held their creden
tials to office from what then appeared to
me to be, and has since been decided by
the supreme court of the state to be, tho
legal returning board. Conformably to the
decisions of this board, a full set of state ■
officers has been installed and a legislative
assembly organized, constituting, if not a
de jure, at least a de facto government,
which, since some time in December last,
has had possession of the offices and been
exercising the usual powers of government;
but, opposed to this, has been another gov
ernment claiming to control the affairs of
tho state, and which has, tj some extent,
been pro forma organized. Recent investi
gation of tho said election, has developed
so many frauds and forgeries as to make it
doubtlul what candidates received a major
ity of the votes acually cast, and in view of
these facts a variety of action has been
proposed. 1 have no specific recommen
dation to make upon the subject, but if
there is any practical way of removing
these difficulties by legislation, then I
earnestly request that such action may be
taken at the present session of Congress.
It se».ins advisable that I should state now
What course I shall feel bound to pursue in
reference to the matter in the event of no
action by Congress at this time. Subject
to any statisfactory arrangement that may
be made by the parties to the controversy,
which of all things is the most desirable, it
will be my duty, so far as it may be neces
sary for me to act, to adhere to that gov
ernment heietofore recognized by me.
"To judge of the election and the quali
fications of its members is the exclusive
province of the Senate, as it is also the
exclusive province of the House to judge
of the election and qualification of its
members; but as to state offices, filled and
held under state laws, the decisions of the
state tribunals, it seems to me, ought lo be
respected. I am extremely anxious to
avoid any appearance of undue interference
in state affairs; and if Congress differs
from me as to what ought to be done, I
respectfully urge its immediate decision to
that effect ; otherwise, I shall feel obliged,
as far as I can, by the exercise of legitimate
authority, to put an end to the unhappy
controversy which disturbs the peace and
prosperity and the business of Louisiana,
by the recognition and support of that gov
ernment which is recognized and upheld
by the courts of the state."
