ENGLAND AND THE UNITED STATES.
-The New York Tribune remarks.that
the British members ot' the joint high
commission, which have arrived in this
country, como in the interests of pcapc
at an auspicious time, and under cir
cumstances more promising than have
ever before surrounded the vexed ne
gotiations which two great ami kindred
nations evpect them to bring to a happy *
close. It predicts that they will be 1
met everywhere with thc courtesy and
cordiality of a people grown old enough 1
to have lost some ol its hist sensitive- 1
ness, and grown too great to be eager
for quarrel or slow to reconciliation. It c
is to be hoped that this prediction will c
bc realized. Mr. Disraeli, the conser- 1
vative leader in tho House of Commons, 1
.complained in a late slashing speech in
tho Hotjse, t))#t the tone of the Ameri- (
can Government towards thp Goyern- 1
ment of England is different from that j
used toward? the Government of any
other country, and although he had
once attributed it to "the rude simplic
ity of Republican manners," it was not
that, for nothing could be more courte
ous than the American tone to the Rus
sian Government. He referred also to
speeches in the House of Representa
tives, and said .that if there is to bc a
commission, " it will be a good oppor'u
nity for us to come to a clear under
standing ou that point-that England
cannot be insulted or injured wi tn im
punity ; and, although I should look
upon it as the darkest hour in my life
to support or even to counsel in this
House a war with the United States,
the Urti tod States must understand that
we will not perinitoursolves to be treat
ed differently from other countries."
In the same speech Mr. Disraeli denied
that the cause of the Southern States
during our late civil war was taken up
by either party in England Mr. Glad
stone, the premier, in a brief and point
ed replv, expressed the opinion, which
was received with cheers, "that our
(their) best and safest course is to trust
to the judgment and good sense of the
American nation." This is Bound ad
vice, and the confidence will not be
thrown away, so far as it assumes a
prevalent disposition here among the
people tobe just and expect justice, spitp
of demagogical politicians.
GENERAL MAGRUDER.-The Mobile
Register thus touchingly mentions the
death of this eminent Confederate : The
telegraph has already informed us of
the death of GeneralJohnB. Magruder,
at Galveston, Texas. He was a dashing
and gallant artillery officer -(faring the
Mexican war, a bril liant man of fashion,
and a general officer in the late war who 1
did some valuable service to the South, j
Socially he was exceedingly urbane and]
courteous, and with all of his convivial '
faults, had a nice sense of honor, a brave
spirit, and the manners of the soldier of
the old. school.. Peace to the ashes of

.? Narrow" Guage Railroads. .
Hon. :L. D. Dibble recently addressed
a large audience in the State Capitol of
Michigan on the subject' of narrow-'
guage railways. The Detriot Tribune
gives tfce following summary of his
"The.common American guage is
four- fee?eight inches and a half, and
the leasjj... cost of .construction of any
road of-fijich width is $25,000 per mile.
Roads.?y&se.guages range from two to
three an4 a half feet, canoe constructed,
equippepMand operated at one-third of
the sumyreq.uired for the same purpose
by. wider guage lines, and as tributaries
to trunk lines, or for opening up new
countries,, are fully as .useful as the
broader.xoads. They have lighter- lo-:
comotivea, smaller cara, narro wer wheels,
lighter ties; cheaper rails, steeper grades
and shatfper curves, and connected with
these-peculiarities are savings in the
cost ot excavation, in tne material used
in bridges and culverts, in the value of
the irjcu?r,#B=the amount of dead weight
per passenger pr per hundred weight of
freight .earned in each train, in the
length, o^ ihe line, and in nerlay every
other item-, of expenditure. Moreover,
railways .of. this class have been and
are practical successes. There are two
now in .ute in our Upper Peninsular,
ane of -which is eight miles in length,
.ind transports 450 tons of ore daily.
In Wales,,a railway with a guage, of
but one foot eleven and a half inches,
ivhich was incorporated in 1832, has
some.gradients of one foot in 60 feet,
:ias reversed curves of such a character
;hat trains sometimes run upon three of
:hem ata^time, and so short that the

Der cent."oh its original capital. Simi
ar roads, now exist in Norway and
Canada, ?jnd one is about being con
itructedin Pennsylvania from Allen
own to Harrisburg, which will have a
juage of ' three feet six inches, and, it
s estimated, "will profitably transport
reight at the rate of one cent per ton
)er milor. ; Mr. Dibble also presented a
arge collection of estimates, showing
hat in-J&is State railways with a
;uage of-about three feet could be
milt anjfc operated foi-, at the most,
ine-thirdjl?of the cost of the usual
ty le of.rbad, and he explained that
he measure introduced in the Senate,
b - proviens" Tor the' incorporation of
larrow guage companies, was only a
ubstautial adaptation of the new sys
ein of the present general railroad law,
vith the omission or correction of some
if the many incongruities of the latter.
Che speaker also claimed that such
oad?s which experience has shown, can
>e very cheaply constructed and will
vork-were exactly what is needed for
he newer portions of the Stat? wnpsfi
vants tliey would relieve fully as well
is the more expensive styl? of railway,
vhile they would entail fewer burdens
ipon thc communities constructing them,
ie also disclaimed any personal interest,
lirect or indirect, present or prospective,
ii any narrow guage line or lines, and
>rescntcd the matter not as one to be
lenefitted by it, but only a matter of
.reat possible importance to the State
if which he is a citizen."
From tho Ciuo'munti (Ohio) Tiuics.
On Saturday morning last carpenters
et to work iu the third story of Beck
et's paper mill, in Hamilton, Ohio, for
he purpose ol' making repairs and im
uovemen.ts in the third story uf thc
mildirig. In the course of their re*
lairs it became necessary to take up a
lortiou of thc floor.
After this had been done, it seems the
:arpenters went to some other portion
>f the building fur the purpose of pre
paring material ta complete the im
provements. It appears that this apear
itire was directly over the huge hopper
>n the second floor used for grinding
.ags. The carpenters had, it seems,
'ailed to erect any barricade arqur?d this
During the afternoon, a party of
foung ladies employed in the establish
nent were passing through the third
itory, when one of their number, Miss
Martha Breckenheart, who was in thc
ead, suddenly disappeared through the
No sooner did her companions dis
cover thia than the horrible thought
Bashed upon them that she had fallen
into, the huge jaws of thc rag-hopper
below. Indeed, they harl not much
poom for doubt, fdr the next instant the
shrieks of the unfortunate girl ran"
through tho building, curdling the blood
of all vho heard.
The screams were heard throughout
the building, but none but the persons
who hid witnessed the fall knew whence
they crime. Several of the girls, know
ing thit the only salvation of the girl
was in the stopping of the machinery,
ran dewn to the first story and had
it stomped-but too late, as the sequel
As soon as the ponderous machinery
could be brought to a stand-still, the
whole force pf tb.e establishment rushed
to the hopper to see what had become
of their friend and companion. The
hopper was found to be nearly empty,
but tie shreds of bloodstained rags
gave painful evidence of the tragedy
that had just been enacted.
A hurried examination of the re
ceiving trough below showed the re
maim of th? girl crushed into a shape
less mass, and .ground into pulpy mince

Ku Klux Raid,
On Monday morning last, about 1
o'clock, a-party of disguised men, sup
posed to number fifty or sixty, came
into Yorkville and proceeded to the
building known as Bose's Hotel. In
this building is tho office of E. M. Rose,
theCotmty Treasurer, and a liquor es
tablishment belonging to D. L. Bussell
& Co. One of the rooms is also used
as . the office of tho County Commis
sioners." A front door was broken open
by means of a piece of timber used as
a battering ram.
On entering the room, the party who
had effected an entrance, immediately
stated that the object of their visit was
to obtain possession of E. M. Rose, the
County Treasurer, and proceeded forth
with to search the house for him, forc
ing the doors of the building, when
they found one locked or fastened. The
furniture in the rooms occupied by the
Oounty Treasurer and the County Com
missioners was demolished, and the pa
cers and records of the respective . of
ices scattered and strewn over the
loors. The liquors in the bar-room of
Russell & Co., were also poured out
ind destroyed. A hole was made in
iie outer covering of the safe, but no
miranee into it was effected- by this
During Monday, the whereabouts of
.he County Treasurer was not general
y known ; but on Tuesday, he made
lis appearance on'the street. In an in
terview with him, he informed us that
vhen he heard a noise in the street, he
nade preparation to leave the premises,
md that it was with the greatest diffi
culty he escaped from the crowd.. The
milding sustained no' further injury
han the forcing of the doors and de
duction of tbe office furniture as above
ecited-the only object apparently of
he raiders being to get possession of
he Treasurer. There are stories in
irculation ?f other aots said to have
leen, committed by the Ku Klux at this
milding, but they lack confirmation, for
rhich reason we withhold them.
The raiders next visited the dwelling
f Thomas Wright, colored, one of the
?ounty Commissioners, probably for the
urpose of capturing him ; but he and
is family had taken the precaution to
bsent themselves, and fortunately no
iolence, further than slight injury to a
iW articles of clothing and the breaking
f a lamp, occurred at this house.
The party were mounted, though while i
ngaged in town their horses were in a
kirt of woods in the vicinity. We sup?;
ose they remained about an hour, and
,'hen they left, took tho Howell's Ferry
load in the direction of Broad Biyer.

EVIDENCES OF GOOD MORAL CHAR- 1
LCTER.-During a brisf term of oourt -
jeld by Judge Sall, iX Martinsburg,
/a., several applications were made for
laturalization papers. Among the ap- J
?licantflwasa native of "Faderland.'-'
Ie took with him a German friend to
irove his residence in the country. Of
his witness the judge asked. " Do you
:now the applicant, Mr.-?"
" Yesh, I well knows him.."
H Is his moral character good ?"
" ?, yesh.-yesh, shiidgo, he's all right
-he votes mit ue !"
The judge could scare repress a smile c
,t the answer to his question. ' fc
A bright, trenchantwriter, who docs
the editing for a Baltimore Episcopal
sheet, talks with his head level about
the impolicy and detriment of excluding
Southern statesmanship from the na
tional councils. His photograph of
Southern Mongrel representation is apt,
vivid and truthful. Readhim
" If the world, as we hare said,- does
not exhibit as rapid a rise in progress as
America presented under Southern coun
sels, neither can it suppress, the sudden
and profound descent which' has" been
made since Southern men were driven
off by the aggressive means of Badical
ism, and kept out by its continued
triumph. There is not a ?material or
political interest of this country which
has not deteriorated in Radical hands.
" The qhange in our condition is as
great as from the genial temperature of
summer to the freezing atmosphere of
mid-winter. In nothing.have we pro
gressed under Badical rule save in the
wholesale increase of debt, national and
State, and in taxation unequaled in any
part of the world, and in an amount of j
afficial corruption which has never been
surpassed from the earliest history of]
mankind. Yet, in the face of these
facts, Badicalism.persists in ostracising
md excluding from the national coun
3ils the statesmen of that section which
las heretofore furnished us our wisest
ind safest guides and leaders -in- pros
perity and adversity. The raee which
ilaims consanguinity with Washington.
Fefferson, Madison, Calhoun, Clay and
ither bright and numberless stars in our
political firmament, are consigned to
futward darkness, whilst the farthing
;allow dips of carpet-baggers are put in
"The very sight is portentous of J
voe-those lean and ill-formed '.ne.
vho have eaten up the fat-fleshed and
veil-flavored ; those empty and blasted
tars of corn which devour the full and
?ood ears. And in a Senate which was
mee Boman in its integrity and power,
,nd on the very spot where the South
am giants-once stood, wen:w?see, as
epresentatives of the South, narrow
irowed, stunted, evil-eyed adventurers
iud scalawags, who look likeacombina
ion of the Wandering Jew and the
mpenitent Thief. And this at a j uns
ure when the country .needs, more than
ver, especially in the state of our
:>reign relations, its best statesmanship,
'he South does not ask to control this
ountry ; but as its future fate is bound
p with the rest, to have some voice in
ts control and in the general guidance,
s not this a reasonable request ? Do not
he interests of tho country demand
hat it should be granted ?"
