THE RUSSO-AMEBICAN TELEGRAPH.-The Direc
I tors of the Western Union Telegraph Company
met in New York last week, and resolved to ssu
pend operations in tho construction of the Russo
American Line. Tho company also resolved to
send a commission to Russia to urge the Court to
assume tho construction of this line from the
Amoor river to the Russian possessions in North
America. If the Russian Government refuses to
accede to this request it is probable that the pro?
ject of counecting tho United States with Asia and
Eurppo by tho Northwestern route will be aban?
The cause for this action may bo briefly stated^
The Atlantic cabio has proved a success beyond
tho expectations of even those who projected it,
and it is not fully employed in transmitting the
despatches now ottered, and tho company are gra?
dually reducing rates. If the Russian lino was
now completed it could not compete for European
business with tho cable.
Such being the facts, tho Western Union Direc
tors do not feel warranted in making further ex
penditure on tho Russian Extension Line. This
lino has been constructed some 800 miles above
Now Westminster, in British America, and, strange
as it may seem, is now paying working expenses
as far North as it goes, and'it works satisfactorily,
The company has expended about $2,400,000 on
the Russian Lino, and has property and funda to
the credit of chat line valued at $l',500,000, which
may bo available to tho stockholders.
Tho capital stock of the company was $10,000,
000, on which twenty-five per cent, was paid.
About ninety per cent." of tho stock was converted
into tho bonds of the Western Union Company, in
accordance with an offer made by that company
some time since. There is about one million
standing unconverted, on which thc holders have
paid $250,000.- Rochester Union.
CCBIOSITY IN WATCHES.-An Englishman has
patented a watch without hands that shows on its
face no figures but those which tell the hour and
minute looked for. The figures aro displayed as
they ure wanted, and no others nppear on the
A FEAST rou run BLIND IN LONDON.-An enter?
tainment was lately given to the blind poor of Lon?
don. About four hundred persons were present
.vho were regaled with a sumptuous tea.
Factg to be Remembered.
We deem it our duty to again admonish tho peo?
ple of Virginia that they liare nothing, either of
speedy or of permanent relief, to hope for from tho
I. Long before that tribunal oan inierporo to
protect us, negro suffrage, sustained by the bayonet,
will have been forced upon us. In this city in tho
month of April "ext, and in the State at large in
May, the atrocious bill of Sherman requires thc
miUtary to protect the negro at tho ballot box.
Twice, then, bsforo we. can hope for roliof, this
outrage will have, been perpetrated in Virginia,
unless the military officer, whose will is the law,
may consent to postpone tho city and State elec?
IL The utter contempt with which the recent
decisions of tho Supreme Court have boen treated,
show how powerless that august body is when it
opposes reason to the mad passions of the mob.
Congress and tho subordinate Federal judiciary
delight in a hundred ways to express their con?
tempt of tho five Conservative judges of that ele?
LU. Unless the people of tho South can hope to
select a successor to President Johnson as con?
servative as that eminent patriot, any relief which
they may hope for from tho Supreme Court would
be of very little practical and of no permanent
value. It will be competent for tho next President
and Congress, acting in conjunction, to so frame
and change thc Supremo Court as to saturato that
body with the Radicalism of Congress.
IV. It has been forcibly said that, so far as the
Supreme Court is concerned, the present con?
servative advantage in that court is hold by tho
slender thread of a single lifo. There arc five Con?
servative and four Radical judges. And of tho
Conservative judges, it is doubtful whether ono
will over take his seat again, and almost certain
that ho will not live twelvo months. "The loss of
one conservative judge will make a tie, and no law
can be declared unconstitutional but by a clear
majority. President Johnson cannot replace a
Conservative judge by now appointment, because
Cony ress, at ita last session, passed a law reduc?
ing the number of judges to seven, forbidding any
new appointment until, by the occurrence of va?
cancies, that limit is reached." The Conservative
judges are the old and most feeble members of the
court, and will probably be the first to die.
V. When the constitutionality of the Sherman
law ?B tested,' our success drponds upon the frail
tenure of a lite, which no ono believes will last six
months. Under the most favorable circumstances,
eminent practitioners in the Supreme Court in?
form us that a decision of the Supreme Court can?
not be expected before the Winter of the prosent
year or the Spring of 1868.
VT. In les3 than three months the Sherman law
will have inflicted the insult of negro suffrage
twice upon the people of Richmond, even if we are
the creatures of a military despotism, and no Con?
vention is called.
VU. If the Supreme Court twelve months hence,
sb all declare the Sherman law unconstitutional,
that decision does not restore us to representation
in Congress. Not a bit of it. It will Bimply throw
us back into the clutches of the Fortieth Congress
-a Congress forty times more malignant and mer?
ciless than that which is now in the articles of
death. In the nert Congress thc Radicals have a
clear majority in the House of Representatives, of
one hundred and twenty-seven.

Gov. Brownlow'? Pro-Slavery anil Anti
No public man of the South has gone, either in
Eublic or private, in writing or speech, further in
is efforts to justify and perpetuate negro slavery
io the South and in Tennessee than Gov. Brown?
low. No public man, even sinco tho war, in Ten?
nessee, has expressed more decided hostility to
the negro being invested frith the voting privilege
than this same Gov. Brownlow. The proof of this
we have in the columns of the Knoxville Whig for
along series of years-in his debate withPryne
in his speeches, sermons and pamphlets (for he
preached pro-slavery and bocame a pamphleteer
on behalf of tho "pe.vdiar institution")-and in his
messages as Governor of the State, since the act of
emancipation by a vote of tho people amending
the State Constitution. From these we are pre?
pared to show that Gov. Brownlow assumed to
play the role of a "Moses" to the colored people,
after the clock had struck twelve, and the tune for
honest and sincere repentance had expired. At
the proper time we shall unearth these proofs, and
bring them 'io view in such unquestionable snape
that he cannot escape their crashing effect, when
contrasted with his present position. The rod is
in pickle, and when the lime arrives we intend to
take it out and apply it ; and promise that it shall
never fail to touch "the raw."
The naked truth is that the franchise question
with these Tennessee Radicals has been a matter
of experiment all the while. The first of the tenta
mena was made in June, 1865. The elections held
in the following August and March showed that it
would not answer the Radical purpose. They
were then bitterly hostile to negro enfranchise?
ment. The next experiment was made by tho
passage of a still more stringent disfranchising
law in 1866, under a careful registration by Brown
low's own appointees. But lo 1 when the returns
were all in, it is plain that this law will not serve
to keep the Radicals in power. It was not until
they had exhausted all means of keeping them?
selves in office, in opposition to the unmistakable
Wish of an overwhelming majority of the legal
voters of the State, that choy thought of the last
expedient, which was to enfranchise the negro, and
bamboozle them into their support. This was tho
last straw that this piratical crew could clutch,
and they did it. But wo mean that the negro, so
far as our power extends, shall know the real truth
and the real hypocricy of these pretended friends
of his-and of this we give thus timely notice.
The North German Confederacy.
On Saturday last the first Parliament of this
newly constituted Confederacy was opened with
all the required pomp of State, at tho Ci tv of Ber?
lin, by the Sing of Prussia in person. This fact is
suggestive. It shows that the sovereign rights
and privileges of the minor States forming tho
Confederacy in junction with Prussia are virtually
things of the past, and that the King of Saxony,
the Grand Duke of Mecklenburg, and all tho other
Princes, who theretofore laid such great stress
upon their independence, have all now one com?
mon sovereign over them in the Prussian King.
The brief abstract of tho King's speech it is hardly
worth our while to notice, for what we are told
that he said are mero common-places, and, may?
hap, intended to be so. For the sako of the fur?
ther consolidation of this new Empire of the Ger?
man North, we aro glad to learn that Count Bis?
marck was present at the interesting ceremony.
The reports of his serious illness, as telegraphed,
were calculated to create alarm. They are now
proven to have been exaggerated; ana we rejoice
at this-for tho loss, evon temporarily, of the ad?
vice of this man of strong will, olear mind and un?
bending energy would have been seriously felt hy
the King not only, but also by all those who favor
the firm constitution of this Confederacy upon a
basis alika glorious to Prussia and beneficial to the
people of the rest of Germany.

THE FEENCH PEESS.-The French "Blue Book"
for the present year contains some interesting
statistics of journalism in France. On the 1st of
January, 1866, there wero published 330 political
journals-63 at Paris and 267 in tho Departments.
On the 1st of January, 1867, tho number of politi?
cal journals was 836, of which thero wero 64 at
Paris and 272 in the Department?. At the former
date, tho nuiuber of non-political newspapers was
1807, of which 703 were publishod in Paris and 604
in the Departments. During tho year those fig?
ures have increased respectively to 1435, 710 and
725. There have been sixteen 4 'warnings" given
during the past year. Ono weekly journal-tho
Courrier du JJimanche-has been suppressed. No
provincial shoot has been suppressed or suspend?
ed. Communications have been aldressed to 144
Parisian and 201 provincial papers. Thirty-two
judicial condemnations have been pronounced dur?
ing the year; 13 at Paris, 19 in the Departments.
One thousand five hundred and seventy-eight
works were presented for authorization in 1866, of
which number 155 wtre refused.
LIABILITY OP STOCKHOLDEBS IN LIMITED Con
POBATION8.-Tho unexpected and disastrous failure
of the banking houso of Gurnoy, Overdid & Co.
(limited), has led to much litigation. Ono of tho
questions arising out of it has just been decided by
vice-Chancellor Malins. Tho holders of alargo
number (six hundred and seventy-six) of shares
applied to have their names removed from the list
of shareholders called upon for contributions to
meet the liabilities ol' the company, on the ground
that they were induced to take shires by false and
fraudulent statements in the prospectus. The
vice-Chancellor reviewed the cases which boro
upon the question which had been argued before
him, and decided that though the shareholders
who moved to bo relieved might have claims as
against tho directors, they were liable to tho
creditors, and their application must be refused.
SENDING THE NEQBOES TO AFRICA.-We are siU'C
that almost everybody will agreo with tho opposi?
tion which was made recently in tho Houso of
Representatives to any further appropriation for
the purpose of aiding negroes to emigrate from
thia country to Liberia. In the old times of slavery
and pro-alavorvism, tho Colonization Society per?
formed a most excellent and commendable work.
But now that blacks are everywhere free, and
their rights as men guaranteed and enforced,
there is no reason why we should send any portion
of them to Africa to work out their salvation. No
one now entertains the idea which was formerly
held by many of our prominent statesmen, that thc
negro nico on this continent will over bo retumod
en masse to Africa; and thc practice of shipping off
a few hundred yearly, at a heavy expense to the
Government and people, serves no reasonable pur?
pose of any kind whatever.-New York Times.
The cultivation of flowers and rare plantB in
Paris has largely increased. At the beginniug of
1855 tho number of gardeners and workmen bo
longing to the municipalitv was only 3; in 1858, 12;
in 1862, 40; in 1864, 60; and in 1805, 101. The plants
md shrubs have similarly increased. In 1855, only
300 coidd be furnished; in 1863, there were delivor
3d 1,602,265, of which 1,575.660 were furnished by
he florist of La Muette, 23,579 by the nursery of
Longchamps, and 3186 by the fir nursery.
NAPOLEON.-A Paris correspondent of a Belgian ?
ournal mentions that tho Emperor fainted the I
?thor clay, on his return from a hunting excursion, !
md that he is Bubject to fainting fits after great 1
?xertion, but that his general health is very satis?
factory. ' ]
"MUOHLY" M ABETED.-Some month or B?I weeks
since we published a paragraph giving an account
of the reappearance or a husband, after a prolong?
ed absence, who found his wife married-to another
man, and living on Oregon Hill. "No. 1" took
possession of wife and premises and ousted "No.
2" unceremoniously. "No. 2" wants a "show,"
and we give it to him. We anuex hie. epistle, after
having corrected his orthography, punctuation,
&c, somewhat, and refer the reader particularly to
the verses with which he concludes hiB appeal :
" JANUARY 27, 1867.
"There was a Confed?rate soldier in Howard's
Grove, who married a widow with three children,
whoso name was M. E. W. The former husband
came and took possession, after an absence of
eight years. Ho wrote letters stating that be was
dead, and J. E. W., tho first husband, now draws
rations at the Southern ration house to support
his family, notwithstanding be was absent during
the whole war; and I think he would do better to
go and support his family by bis own labor, in?
stead of walking about the street; and I think it is
a poor way to walk atout tho streets to make a
"?umber One came down and took possession ot
Number Two's wife, which Number Two does not
consider right, but with which be must be satis?
"It is statod that Number One was married
agaiu while in Pittsburg, and if such is the case, I
think be had better remained with her, provided
sbo is able to take care of him. He had better go
back to his latter wife, who is ablo to support bira.
What can a woman be thought of who would, after
a desertion of eight years, again take the deserter
to her heart.
"Sho has been Hving happy these last four years,
but now her happiness ia at an, end.
"Oh, Number One, why did you go,
From your wife, who sees woe ?
And married Two with a sweet content,
To go with a man wi tb discontent?
"Oh, thou who was my own true wife.
Went with a man of great strife,
Destroyed ray fortune in this world,
And never better'd thyself.

PAKISTAN SOCIETY.-A French journal says that
at a ball recently given by ono of tbe leaders of
Parisian society, tuero were twenty-eight French
people, forty-one English, seventeen Americans,
thirty-six Italians, sixty-nine Germans, nine Hus?
sions, five Greeks, six Turks, twenty-nine
Spaniards, three Swedes, two Danes, and seventy
three of other nationalities not French.
COINCIDENCE EXTBAOBDINABY.-A remarkable,
and perhaps unparalleled, coincidence is recorded
in the civil registry of Bar-sur-Aube, in France. In
18G6 there were inscribed there ono hundred and
B?X births, ono hundred and six deaths, and one
hundred and B?X marriages. _\

From SAMUEL HENRY DICKSON, M. D., Professor
Practice of Physic, Jefferson Medical College, Phila?
delphia, formerly of Charleston, S. C.:
PHILADELPHIA, November 16,1865.
I have been for a year or moro past in the habit of
taking the water of the "Excelsior" Spring of Saratospa.
Accustomed during thc great portion of my invalid hie
to use thc different waters of tho several fountains widen
boU up along that remarkable valley, dependent, indeed,
upon them tor much of the comfort I enjoy, I am aaU9
flcd that the Excelsior Water is au well adapted as any
other among thom, if not moro to, to tho purposes tor
which they are generally employed. It is very agreeable,
strongly impregnated with the carbonic acid, Uvely and
spar kiters;- * * * I can heartily and conscientiously
recommend it to all who m ed a gentle cathartic and
diuretic. SAMUEL HENRY DICKSON, M. D.
The Water ls put up in Pint and Quart bottles, aud
packed in good order for shipping, Pints in boxe^ ot
four dozen each, and Quarts in boxes of two dozen each.
