cept that the stags rapport the letter 0, which
is of rod enamel, with gold edge. The female

-Tbs statistics of divorce in CcoBeotioat
BJ?startling. Patins; last year tbs divorcee
numbered four hundred and seventy-eight, or
more than one-tenth the number of mafriiges.
AU the marriages oelebrated in the State dur
iagtbeyear are included in the total of 4784.
The Norwich Bulletin says: "A large propor?
tion of these are marriares between foreign?
ers, communicants of the Roman Catholic
Church, whovexoept in very rare cassa, nev jr
trouble the courts. The twen y-3ve unhappy
souples whose names adorned the Superior
' Ooart docket for thia county at ita last term
Its, without exception, native citizens. Add to
this the number who are practically divorced,
but who, from family or other consid?rations,
neglect to obtains legal separation, and the
extent of the evil will be nude apparent."
The nsw Governor of Connecticut has re com
commended to the Legislature a modification
of the existing divorce lews, the provisions of |
which are so lax that there is hardly any appli?
cation for divorce which the judges could le?
-Last Wednesday, in New York City, a^
election was held among the Methodists raB|
Ive trastees to take charge of tho ossa! great
Camp meeting, to bs held at-Bing Slue, in Au?
gust .The female members were'entitled to
Tote, and asgstat complaints wore made last
year by thm portion or the church in regard to
the unfair and injudicious allotment of the ]
.nts, great excitement prevailed. Five print?
ed tioLc?s, containing the names of the candi?
dates differently combined, were distributed
by canvassers stationed neai the polls, but
"scratching" also prevailed to some extent.
By six o'clock only thirty-five female votes had
been oast, but according to the tactics of an
ordinary political election, the women reserved
their strength ti l the last moment, and at 8
O'clock, the time of closing the polls, came np
to a large body of neara hundred, to decide
thc contest. In addition, the mimed women
exercised a supervision over their husband's
Totes, examining the ticket and depositing it
in the box, with the remark in some cases :
"You may vote that, dear; that's all right."
This incident caused the general observation,
That's what were coming to."
-The)newest of the new plans for connect?
ing Bogland wi th. France by railway, is that of
submerged iron tube, to be supported at a
fepth of about 60 feet below the surface of the
Irater by iron trestles, the feet of which will
rest upon the bed of the straits. The tube is to
be lu tte outside diameter 23 feet 6 inches, and
with a view of giving it sufficient strength it
is to be of cast iron, 8 inches in thickness.
Its length between each pair of legs or sup
potto is to bo 800 feet, and the weight of each
or these sootions 8000 tons. Bach of those
lengths is to be made up of 8 segments of 37
feet 6 inches, and these are to be firmly bolted
together by means of steel bolts passing
through external flanges. Each segment will
bo mado water-tight by a bulkhead, and will
be lowered until it is brought into oxict posi?
tion with the pott ion previously fixed, and
when made fast by the bolts the near balk
head will be removed, and tho workmen will
pass on to the next segment. The ventilation
of the tnbe is to bo provided by stationary
steam power at one of the entr??eos to the
tube, which will force a sufficiency of air
through a channel constructed along the inner
roof of the tube to a point about midway of
ita entire lensrth, where it will be "discharged
and force itself along the tube to either end.
All this sounds impracticable enough; but we
live in an age of marvels, and perhaps the
the scheme may one day be realized.
TUESDAY MORNING, JUNE 1, 1869.
Our Western Connect loma.
Ike report of John B. Lafitte, Esq., the
representative of the City of Charleston,
before the City Council of Cincinnati, is a
clear and comprehensive summary of the
arguments in favor of a railway connection
between the Qaeen of the West and the great
seaport of South Carolina. And while it
shows conclusively that the most advanta?
geous terminus for the proposed Southern
road is Knoxville and not Chattanooga, it
gives us the encouraging assurance that
whatever route may finally be adopted, we
shall have a connection with both Louisville
and Cincinnati, by the time that the Blue
Ridge Railroad is completed. The Knox?
ville route would give Cincinnati a connec?
tion with Norfolk and with the railroad
systems of North Carolina, Georgia, and j
Alabama, as well as with Charleston, but j
even if the tess favorable route via Chatta?
nooga be chosen we shall still be able, by
taking advantage of the commercial energy
of Louisville, to reach up into the heart of |
Cincinnati, no less than Charleston, wi'l
be benefitted by obtaining a cheap and
rapid communication with our seaboard. If j
we send to her the foreign produce, the salt [
and other commodities that she may require,
the West will send to us the iron and ooal
of Tennessee, provisions of every kind, and
the manufactured articles which Cincinnati
can produoe more oheaply than any oity of1
the East. These facts, now for the first
time, of late year?, forced upon the atten?
tion of the people of Ohio, will have great
weight in determining the manner of ex
pending the ten millions of money which
Cincinnati is authorised to lay out in build?
ing a Southern railroad. And, however,
much private Interests may be opposed to
the Knoxville route, its dalma are now so
strong that they cannot well be isna**?*
If Kuoxvig* be indeed mads the termi?
nus, the result will be due to the exertions
of Mr. Lafitte, President Harrison, of the
Bine Ridge road, Chief Engineer Low, and
the other gentlemen who have so faithfully
repr?a?Bt*d tho interests of our City and
Bute. And in any event, we may now go
to work with the assurance that it rests
with ourselves; to decide whether the mil?
lions already spent are to be thrown away,
or whether by adding to them we make the
whole profitable, and secure that commer?
cial prise which has so often eluded our
Mr. Lafitte is especially forcible in his
statement of the reasons which should in?
duce us to airain avery nerve to secure the
prompt completion sf the Blue Ridge. Bail
road. These reasons need not be recapitu?
lated here. But in assuming that the com?
pletion of the Blue Ridge Railroad is the
ons great object for which to strive, we
must not forgot that we have no reason to
hope for any outside help. . Cincinnati and j
Louisville already have their hands full;
they will push forward towards our bor?
ders. We most be ready to meet them.
The State Legislature has already au?
thorised the guarantee of four millions of |
dollars for the completion of the Blue Ridge
Railroad, and has pledged the faith and
credit of South Carolina to the pusotual
payment of th? bonds that may be issued
for that parp?se. Bat the great work will
require about six millions, and it is all-im?
portant that it should not be suffered to lag
for want of funds. South Carolina has, at
this tims, fully $200,000,000 of taxable pro?
perty, and this most be so increased in
amount by the opening of the Blue Ridge
Road and the influx of new trade and com?
merce, that we shall be able to pay, if ne?
cessary, the whole interest on the money
to be spent in building the road, and yet be
less oppressed by taxation than we are at
thia time. We can give an abundant secur?
ity for all our debt, and as the Blue Ridge
Railroad is for the benefit of the whole
State, we should be ready to give it assist?
ance from the common fund, and so hasten
the coming of the day whioh shall link
South Carolina and Ohio together, and
make each the means of swelling the for?
tune of the other.
We repeat, that the completion of the
Blue Ridge Railroad is the one thing to
whioh we must direct all our efforts. The
State, the city and individual citizens must
never slacken their endeavors until the
great work is accomplished.
A Good Usn Gone.
The active business circles of the South?
west have not receiyed, for a long time, so
grave a blow as has been dealt them in thc
oasualty by which Colonel L. T. Woodruff,
of Mobile, lost his life. He was one of the
best of'the old school of Southern mer?
chants, and his dignity, courtesy, and nise
sense of honor were only equalled by his
untiring energy, enterprise, and public
spirit as a oitisen. In the war, he bore a
eouspiououaAnd honorable part as colonel
of an Alabama regiment, and since the
close of hostilities the unflagging zeal whioh
he has displayed in the work of the material
restoration of our section, won for him the
Presidency of the Mobile Board of Trade.
Colonel Woodruff waa well known to
many of our oitizens, and the writer oan
never forget the genial hospitality with
whioh the members of the press were wel?
comed by him during a recent visit to Mo?
Th,? Preifcy torlang of the North,
Some days ago we had a brief announce?
ment by telegraph of the steps which had
been taken by the Presbyterian General
Assemblies in New Fork to reconcile the
differences which have so long separated
the Old and New Schools of that denomina?
tion. The New York papers bring us the
particulars of the basis of reunion which
has been agieed upon by the two bodies.
The doctrinal differences which led to the
separation of the Old and New Sohool de?
nominations in 1838, consisted mainly in a
more or less rigid construction of the stand?
ards of the church, especially with refer?
ence to the doctrines of election, original
sin, &c , the Old Sohool aooepting more in?
flexibly the oreed of Calvin, whilst the
Confession of Faith was interpreted by the
New Sohool in a less literally Calvinistic
sense. The basis of reunion now adopted
requires that "the Confession of Faith shall
"continue to be sinoerely received and
"adopted as containing the system of doc
"trine taught in the Holy Scripture." As
each school had professed to do this in its
separate organization, there would seem to
be no difference on that point warranting a
permanent separation. The plan of reunion
abstains from deciding the original ques?
tions at issue, and each party is left to put
ita own construction upon the standards,
only that henceforth the differences upon
these points are not to interfere with the
unity and harmony of the church. This
plan has yet to undergo the discussion
of the various Presbyteries of the two As?
semblies, who are to express their approval
or disapproval before the 15th of October
next, and if approved of by three-fourths of
each, the two Assemblies, meeting in Pitts?
burg in November next, shall so declare,
and take action for formal reunion. The
unanimity and heartiness evinoed in the
aotion of the Assemblies would seem to
warrant the belief that the Presbyteries
will aot in the same spirit, and that the
reunion of the two churches will be fully
completed in November next.
This, however, is not, as some have sup?
posed, a reunion of the Northern and
Southern Presbyterian churches; though
that subject came up for discussion in the
Old Sohool Assembly on a report of the com?
mittee on bills and overtures, and was re?
ferred to a speoial committee. The Mode?
rator, however, stated that any aotion at
the present time might be damaging to the
peace of the Southern church, and would

YOU OUGHT TU INSURE III THIS

1st Because it le a home institution managed and
controlled by your own citizens.
3d. Besanas it is the only monied institution of
the k ind that loans its funds in the state? from which
they are derived.
3d. Because lt ie purely mutual; all policy holders
share in its profits or earnings. Its large and in?
creasing assets belong exclusively to the policy
alb. Because its rates are Icwer than those of most
other companies, and ita dividends will be larser.
S th. Because it invests its funds at rates of interest
averaging ten per cent., while Eastern companies'
rates average less than seven per cent. This makes
the dividends of the Association larger and the ratea
of premium smaller. One hundred dollars Improved
at six per cent for fifty j ears will amount to tl.842 Ol.
The same amount invested at ten per cent, will pro?
duce til,799 09. Diff?rence m favor of the ten per
