-The Rev. Mr. Murray, a young man re?
cently settled over the Park-street Church in

whose youthful hopes bad been disappointed."
-Tho Rev John A tottj of West Virginia,
has invented a camera .jr taking photographs
of the earth's surface from ?ny desired height.
It is sent up by a ba loon, with a clock work to
open and shot it at the right elevation, and
when it is pulled down the photographic im?

great use in war.
-Tho Judges of the United States Supreme
Court wcro in consultation on Friday and

no decision has been reached. Tbe consulta?

thors will be two opinions prepared, but at
this time it is unknown upon which side the
majority opinion will be made. Future con?
ferences will decide this and who shall be
selected to prepare thc opinions.
-General Grant authorizer tho statomoot
that he has not in any way, in conversation or
otherwise, made known his preferences for the
persons to fill his Cabinet. He has uniformly
indicated that he would take no action ci tho
subject until ofter be shall receive official noti?
fication of his election, which notification can?
not reach him for about a month from this
date. There is the same authority for saying
that General Grant has not intimated an opin- 1
ion as to what course should be taken by tho
Senate relative to nominations made bj Mr.
Johnson, nor what offices should bo left in
abeyance until after the fourth of March.
-Commodore Vanderbilt says that the secret
of his success in managing railroads is econo?
my. He says : "If 1 cannot use the capital of
that road (New York Central) tor pretty nigh
$2,000,000 better than any one that has over ;
been in it, then I do not want to bo on the
road. If you have been running a road,
and yon spend nine or ten millions to rou it,
if I cannot do lt for eight, and do it as well, I
am ready to go from the road. That has been '
my principle with steamships. I never had
any advantage of anybody in running steam- ;
ships; but if I could not run a steamship i
alongside of another man, and do it as well as <
he, for twenty per cent, less than it cost bim, I ,
would leave the ship."
-An attempt was mado the other day in tho
House to secure pay for the members from the '
reconstructed States for the full term of the '
Fortieth Congress. The resolution, as drawn, f
included only the Arkansas members, but was <
equally applicable to all the rest. It recited ^
the precedents of the Louisiana and Tenuessee ]
members in tho Thirty-seventh Congress, when
both States were also represented in the Con?
federate Congress, and tho case or thc Tannes- 1
see members in the Thirty-ninth Congress, <
who were admitted during tho second year of 1
the term, butreceived pay for the full torm. <
After numerous motions, the House evaded <
responsibility of a direct vote by referring it to ,
the Reconstruction Committee, though no?
body could see what they have to do with it.
-The latest ind most horrible form of sui- ?
oide is that chosen by a young girl in Danby, 2
111., about twenty-five miles from Chicago, t
last Thursday evening. She threw herself un- t
der a railroad train, which passed over hor, \
severing her hoad from the body, and throw?
ing it several feet away, and also cutting off .
one of her feot and crushing ooo arm. The 1
caiue of tho terrible act is said to be the rc- '
fosal of thc parents to allow the poor girl to I
marry a young man to whom sh? was attached.
A letter was round in the pocket of her dress
directed to her lover, bidding him an affec- '.
tionate good-bye. The suicide was commit- i
ted after dark, and the girl .apparently threw <
herself under the oars instead of before tho .
-New York has a number of "velooipod*"
schools. Each school has three classes-one
fer beginners, one for t'noso who can ride
without tumbling every few minnies, and ono
for those who are nearly ready to make their
debut in tho street. These schools are well
patronized, and tbe managers are miking
money. When the roads harden after the
spring thaws, the voIo:iped33trhu3 will infest
every nighway and byway. Already we hear
ofsomocletks and merchants making their
way down town in tho morning on volo upedes
and by n xi May we shall meet them coming
in from the country m the samo fashion. At
least ten thousand who do business in New
York live in the suburbs; and it costs them
from fifty to tw o hundred dollars a year to
come in and j>o ont during tho summer. They
can save moiey by buying velocipedes, which
cost from $63 to $150 each, and will soon bc
cheaper, learning to ride them, and then travel?
ling on their own steeds. Tho number of
velocipedes now in uso in New York is about
two hundred and fifty, and in a few months it
wi 1 probably b- :ncroosed to two thousand. 1
The demand for themis so great that the man?
ufacturers havo moreorderajon hand than they
can fill in two months. - I
-An eating match against time is the latest
novolty in the New York" spoiling world, which,
judging from its description in the Tribune,
must have been a most disgusting exhibition.
Two woeks agc,~a beT of $50 w?'. Th?de thaTtt
certain notorious gourmand would eat three
dozen hard boiled - eggs, without drink of any
kind, within the space of thirty-six minutes.
The match came off Satuiday. The first 17
eggs were bolted whole in Hi minutes. The
eighteenth stuck fast in the throat ; tbe ope?
rator gulped painfully, but the obstruction
would not stir. Tho sufferer soizsd the iron
handle of tho saucepan which containod the,
boiled eggs, and was about to inject the ob?
struction when the opposite party called "foul."
Tho umpire, with extraordinary judicial
persp cacity, rondered his decision-that the
operator might inject or eject at pleasure by
mechanical aid, but tho eggs so injected or
ejected would not count. Ho went on to give
his reasons, and got to the "thirdly," when
the suffocating wretch, now purple in the face
as the gills of a male turkey, eyes distended
outsido their sockets, breathing etentoriously,
bolted [thc recalcitrant egg with the handle of
the saucepan. Seventeen regular eggs and a
blank in sixteen and three-quarter minutes.
The eater sank into a chair entirely exhausted,
with stomach in a volcanic state. After two
minutes rest, three more eggs were bolted in
manifest pain, eyes running water, and thc
whole frame twitching spasmodically. Twenty
four eggs in twenty-five minutes, and the ope?
rator throws up thc sponge and is taken away
by his backers.
FRIDAY MORNING. JANUAHY 29, 1669.
Tlie President of the South Carolina
We publish this morning a preamble and
resolutions adopted at the last quarterly
meeting of the Board of Directors of the
South Carolina Railroad Company, in which
is expressed the high opinion entertained
by the board of the services rendered to the
company by its President, Mr. W. J. Ma?
grath. The terms of the resolutions explain
the general nature of the work which Mr.
Magrath bas performed, but to the words of
the directors, who know better than the pub?
lic can know what were the difficulties to
eurmount and the opposition to overcome,
we may add the expression of our own con?
viction that Mr. Magrath has not only re?
trieved the fallen fortunes ol the South Car?
olina Railroad Company, but has also been
instrumental in the promotion and advance?
ment of every commercial and business in?
terest of this city and State.
The South Carolina Railroad Company,
which at the close of the war was in a bank?
rupt condition, is now financially strong,
and in a fair way of relieving itself of the
burden of indebtedness which has pressed
so heavily upon the attention of its manage?
ment. The road itself has been rebuilt, the
ravages of war have been repaired, and
there is not now in the whole Southern States
a railroad moro thoroughly equipped, or bet-'
ter prepared^) meet the exigencies of a grow?
ing business. The floating debt of the com?
pany has, we believe, been virtually extin?
guished, the reconstruction account is closed,
and the prospect is bright that tho road will
soon become actively and permanently pro?
fitable. And every step which has been
taken has been of benefit to the city and
State, as well as to the company. The South
Carolina Railroad has met foreign opposi?
tion with tact and vigor; it has carried the
war of trade into the country of the enemy;
it has been generous in its outlay of money
to draw business over its road to thc seaport
of South Carolina; it has carried the sign of
the Palmetto to the banks of the Mississippi,
and h '.8 made Charleston the port of entry
and shipment for the freight of Mobile,
New Orleans and Vicksburg, as well as
Memphis, St. Louis and the whole mighty
West. And, in behalf of the State at large,
the South Carolina Railroad has fought,
without fear or favor, against every project
for carrying trade away from the State, be?
ing animated, not by petty rivalry, but by
the feeling that we must work for South
Carolina as Georgia works for Georgia, and
Virginia works for Virginia, if we would
iiave our State as prosperous, as honora
lie, as rich, as free from reproach. We
ilready feel the effects of the broad and
comprehensive policy which has inspired
,he management of the South Carolina Rail
?oad Company; we begin to unterstund
low much has been done in the face of jeer
ind reproach, and now say, iu the words of
>ne of the resolutions before u?, thst we
'regard this improvement as due chiefly to
'the able administration of the President
'of the South Carolina Rtilroad Company,
'Mr. William J. Migrath."
Mr. Magrath himself has doubtless been
mstained, through the trials and labors of
fears, by the consciousness of his own puri
y of purpose, and the confident belief that
?me, which setteth all things ar'ght, would
ie at last his surest vindication. Time
ind events have justified his policy, and he
s now spoken of by his board in a manner
which is as generous as it is just, as compli?
mentary as it is well deserved.
At tho regular quarterly meeting of the
Board of Directors of the South Carolina Rail?
road Company, held ia the City of Charleston,
m tho evening of the 20th instant, L. D.
DeSaussurc, Esq., presiding, as chairman pro
icm., tho following preamble and resolutions
were unanimously adopted, and ordered to be
engrossed as a part of tho minutes of tho
Whereas, At tho termination of tho lato war
the proporty of thi? oompiny was in a ruinous
conditionals treaeury was empty and its finances
disordered; and, wliereas, tho Board ol' Direc?
tors will now have the Batistaclion of submit?
ting to the stockholders, at tho approaching
annual convention, an account of their property
highly satis'actory as to its presont condition,
and equally promising in respect of its future
Resolved, unanimously, That the Bmrd re?
gard this improvement as duo chiefly to tho
able administration of thc President, Mr. Wil?
liam J. Masrath.
Resolved, unanimously, That they take pleas?
ure in expressing their tense of bis zeilou-<
devotion to the interests of this company during
?t?o long period of twonty-threo years in wtiich
?3 bas been m its service, and of the eminent
ability and success with which he has adminis?
tered its affairs since ho was elevated to the
honorable position of President.
.f ' Ode European cbusintfare accustomed
'dread, the wink of King William or
sneeze of Emperor Louis, as ominous por
tents of the immediate avenging of "Le
Vaterloo," or tho coming of a continental
war. But they may be~? little "surprised lo
find that in' this Republican country every
"word" of'G'eneral Grant is listined to as
anxiously as though the President elect the
likeness of a kingly crown had on, and were
the master absolute of half a million of sol?
We admit that this hero-worship is some?
what strange on the part of a people who
do not allow their ambassadors to wear
knee-breeches, and who sturdily proclaim
their rererenoe for simple Benjamin Frank?
lin. And yet we have a good excuse, a
brave excuse, why we now act as though
the fate of these United States depended on
the will of one man alone.
We have been in an unsettled condition
for about eight years, during the greater
part of which the life of thousands hung
on the crook of a finger, and their liberties
on the tinkling of a bell. We beoame accus?
tomed to see the supreme law of the land
torn and patched to suit the exigencies of
the times. For a while a President was
supreme, then a Minister was master, then
Congress became lord of all, so that in our
desire to forget that the government of the
country bad been entrusted to three co-or?
dinate powers, and measured our chances
for thc future by what was said tc done by
the demi-god of the day.
And it is just this feeling that causes us
to count the wreaths of smoke which
surround the head of the "Coming Man,"
to see tribulation in a frown, joy in a smile,
and the fruition of all our hopes in a mono?
syllabic speech. We have grown accustom?
ed to being well shaken before taken, and
pin our faith to General Grant for the very
good reason that wo might go further and
fare much worse.
But this will not endure in this shape
forever and a day. There will be a change
before long, and either the Union will be?
come the Union of old, or the shadow of
Republican institutions will be sent to keep
company with the substance which some
time since departed.
In the meanwhile, Democrats and Repub?
licans will keep a close eye upon the Presi?
dent eleet, and interpret all that he does
not say as a promise of better days to come.
They will watch every word of the favorite
of fortune, and, like good Republicans, con?
tinue to worship the powers that be, no
matter what some folks say.

The February number of (his popular

Among the twenty articles composing the

contributes a sketch of Sir Fobert Peel.
The crilioism on Ilalleck assigns to him a
much higher place than will be awarded by
posterity. The outline history of the In?

the whole, it is a capital number.

subject, delivered in sermons before the
University of Oxford. The ladies will
peruse with soma amusement and some in?
