THE IELEGEAPH BUSINESS.
its Growth in the United States-Four
Thousand Offices, Five Thousand Five
Hundred Operators and Seventy Th?n?
se nd Miles of Wire.
The number of telegraph stations and opera?
tors employed in the United States is not gener?
ally known, even among telegraphers. According
to official information the total number of tele?
graph offices now daily transmitting and receiv?
ing messages is as follows :
Western Union oftlces, 3469; Franklin, Atlantic
and Pacific, Pacific and Atlantic, and Bankers' and
Brokers' line offices, 545; total number of public
offices In the United States, 4014. Thc estimated
number or private offices, at which no public
bnslness is received for transimisson, is 100
making a grand tot U of 4114.
The number of mi es of line now In actual use is
as follows: Western Union Company, 52,099;
Franklin, Atlantic and racine, Pacific and Atlan?
tic, and Bankers' and Brokers', and co nections,
The number of persons employed, including
presidents, superintendents, managers, opera?
tors, clerks, messengers and Une repairers, has
been carefully estimated at five hundred. A
large number of good operators have left the busi?
ness during the past few years; and in New York
there are many professional telegraphers engaged
in other pursuits.
THE COLD INDICATORS
About two years ago a company began thc dis
trlbutlon of the little box-like "gold indicators,"
connecting with the New York Gold Room by
telegraph; and at the present time there are one
hundred and fifty-five of these important lnstru
ments placed In the counting-rooms of snbscrib
ere throughout New York. The price charged per
week for the use of this indicator ls five dollars;
and as the company is at no expense, except for
the salary of the one operator required in the
Gold Room, the profits are very large.
Within the past year a printing operator has in
vented an Instrument for recording the prices of
all the stocks called in the New York Stock Ex?
change. This machine ls self-recording, and the
figures are plainly printed upon a slip of plain
paper. The name of this company ls the "Gold
and Stock Telegraph Company;" and so useful
and popular have these instruments become, that
they are to be found in the offices of all the prom?
inent bankers and brokers of Wall and Broad
streets, and Exchange Place. The price per week
for the use of this indicator is six dollars. Thc
clear profit of this company are estimated at live
hundred and fifty dollars per day.
SYSTEMS OF TELEGRAPHING.
The Morse system of telegraphing has rapidly
superseded all others. The House ? Phelps com?
bination printing sytem, although about e3S>
third faster than the Morse, has been proved to
be less trustworthy and more expensive than the
latter. The newspaper press generally prefer the
manuscript copy of Morse operators to thc incon?
venient printed tape-like narrow strips, of the
printing instruments. A prominent Boston
morning journal at one time refused to receive
special dispatches from the Washington corres?
pondent because they had been transmitted by
the printing line.
A rapid "sound-reading" Morse telegrapher
can receive from thirty-five to thirty-eight words
a minute, and transfer them to paper in a clear,
legible manner. Within the past five years the
Morse Register (through which a slip of narrow
paper was originally run by simple clock work to
obtain the characters) has gone entirely out of
use, and there are not probably half a dozen'of
them now working in New York. Nearly all the
operators have learned to read the signals entire
ly by sound; and a skilful telegrapher can also
read the signals distinctly by night.
The salary of first-class Morse sound-reading
operators ls fixed at $118 a month; but there are
a large number m New York who receive but $100.
A large majority of the more intelligent Ameri?
can operators in the business were originally
from the country, and, until very recently, com?
paratively few students In the city had an oppor?
tunity to learn the business. In country offices,
where business is light, there are unusual facili?
ties for young men to learn the method of oper?
ating; and this In a measure accounts for thc fact
that thc more skilful and proficient come from
the small stations in the interior, within the
past two years, the Western Union Company have
annually received from thc public schools a num?
ber of young men, who have ?uccessfully gradu?
ated, and have taught them the business. These
youths invariably make good tele ?xphere. Thc
time necessary for a person tc . rn how to
send and receive a message va. from two
weeks to three months. Thc youLi. ,'am very
rapidly. There are many children \-hose age
does not exceed twelve years, who can transmit
and receive dispatches; but to become a first-class
sound-operator requires a practice of at least a
year and a half. A good musician, or any one
rond of music, learns very rapidly ; but persons
over twenty-five years of age rarely become pro?
ficient In telegraphing. Il is believed there is not
an exception to this rule in this country. .
Women have lately been employed in American
offices, and there are Instances on record where
one of them has received and copied by sound
news dispatches of ten thousand words. There
are few, howev er, who are able to receive more
than six thousand or seven thousand words, or
lour columns of newspaper type, without relief.
In no part of the world is thc telegraph ?o lib?
erally used by the newspapers as in the United
States. Tae greater amonnt of this work is done
at night, when the financial and commercial busi?
ness of the day is concluded, aud the various coru
?anies can, therefore, afford to send news cheaply,
he number of words contained in the press dis?
patches delivered to the different journals in the
United States during the past vear. by all the
lines, is estimated at 400,500,000; and the amount
of tons upon this class of custom in the same
year was one million dollars.
The longest direct circuits, with which New
York operators exchange business without repe?
tition, are from New York to Chicago, Cincinnati,
Louisville and Wilmington, N. C.
The Franklin Telegraoh Company about one
year since adopted the use of double transmit?
ters, and are constantly working one wire to
Philadelphia and one to Boston, both ways at thc
same time. This invention was made by Dr. Cin?
tel, of Germany, a few years ago, and has proved
a decided success. Th.re is scurcely a day in the
year but this company work these Instruments
upon this system without serious Interruption by
Within the past two years several private com
panies or corporations have erected lines for their
own use. Among others are two wires recently
completed between this city and Philadelphia,
one for Smith, Randolph & Co., brokers, of New
York, and Harrison Brothers ,V Co., dealers in
paints, oils, Ac. No public business is transacted
over these wires, which arc owned and managed
exclusively by these firms.
MR. PEABODVS "RESIDENCE."-Mr. Peabody,
as the cable informs us, died at "his residence m
Eaton square." It was one of the peculiarities
of Mr. Peabody that he never would have a house
of lils own. He cared little for himself in all
things-lt was his habit, for instance, to dine oir
a mutton chop at the grand dinners he used to
give, where every luxury was spread upon the
table. He had a room in the house of his old
friend, Sir Curtis M. Lampson, in Eaton square,
and it was there that he died. He used to live
there in the most qslet and retired manner: and
his name did not appear in any directory or
"Court Guide." He ha3 suffered much during the
last four years, and could very seldom bc induced
to call in a doctor; when he did lie neither obeyed
the doctor's orders nor took his medicine. As one
of his physicians complained a short time ago. Mr.
Peabody was a "most unsatisfactory" patient.
He hated io be asked after his health, or to have
any fuss made over him. He wtU, no doubt, be
buried in Danvers, Massachusetts-that, at lea1;!,
was the wish he often expressed in his life?
time.- New Torte Times.
SINGULAR REQUEST OF A CONDEMNED MUR?
DERER.-Pike, who was to bc hanged at Concord,
New Hampshire, on Thursday, for murder, makes
a request, which will probably be granted, that a
quartette of young ladles In Concord, who have
often sung to him and other prisoners, be allowed
to remain in bis cell after he passes out for the
last time, and stng while preparations to launch
him Into eternity are being concluded; that ls,
after the cap ls drawn over his face, while the
straps and ropes are being adjusted. He also re?
quests that no relatives of his victims shall be ad?
mitted to witness Ids death.
THE OE AND OPERA IN PARIS.
its Construction, Interior Arrangement
The Paris correspondent of the London Tele?
graph writes :
Yesterday I paid a visit to thc interior of the new
Grand Opera, Pans as yet of course an architectu?
ral chaos, and hardly revealing "its future glories
to exoteric eyes. Most of your readers have seen
the grand mass of Haussiuaunic conception. I
used to dislike it, but it has grown on Paris, and
if vou waik down the Ruc Louis lc Grand you w?l
see a facade, and behind it a theatre, never yet
equalled in Europe. I remember being conducted
with solemn awe to the Scala, and with hushed
reverence to San Carlo. I had even then seen
theatres and was disappointed, as every one who
goes to see anything after twenty-five will
probably be; still, there they were. But, looking
to the actual dimensions of those two theatres, it
seems to mc that you might pack them up and
carry them home in the parterres of the new
Grand Opera of Paris. What that edifice has cost
and will cost is nothing to the readers or to the
writer of this letter. Do they know what the
Crimean war cost? the Indian mutiny or thc
Abyssinian expedition ? No. Well, then, we have
our own little expeditions; and I say with Lever.
"Silence a la mort.'"
To build over a quicksand is not a good plan,
and certainly is not a cheap one. There is a
tower in London-not the Tower; who cares for
that?-which also in early life met witli very
shifty fortunes. I do not say that I admire the
brazen Images which thc architect has set up-I
do not ?ike them at all; and, indeed, I fancy that
bronze will hardly express what they will be in a
year; yet they glitter, and thc Parisian, basking
in the sun as he drinks lils corree and water, says
to a friend from the country who pays, "Behold,
my cousin, that is line.'' i do not think so, but
the whole effect is grand. The walking public
are to walk into their places by the grandest en?
trance, that which faces the site whereon stood
the Rue de la Paix before it was "Shunted right"
about half a turn. If you are to judge
about what you go to hear and see
from the entrance which admits you to
your seat you must auticlpate something mag?
nificent. Crossing the Graud Place de l'Oper?,
you, a cheap, walking, stall-going person, mount
a staircase worthy of Venice, and go through gal?
leries In which you need not be puffocat?d be?
tween the acts, either to pit. upper boxes or gal?
lery. It was ot'Jccted that the entrances were Tow
and narrow. They are not the latter: and, as for
the height, a man of six feet two, with his cane,
could scarcely touch the top. Round the build
lng a corridor, open in summer, closed in winter;
to thc north, the carriage entrance, under cover
of which comes the general public, and that com?
posite body will drive up to its stalls and boxes
through arcades, whicli will remind the younger
male mind of Burlington. So far as we could
ludge, the rest of thestaircases will be perfect.
But "Halt-what have we here?" 'Tis the cn
trance of the Emperor and thc Empress, and is
truly Imperial. Prom a loggia we see it-a grand
gallery, which in hot weather will allow ail the
upper boxes to lounge out of their places, smoke
In the open air, watch those who come and go,
and look down on that vista which will lead to
th? Theatre Fran?ais. The imperial box is enter?
ed by a somewhat heavy gateway, which, from
above, gives rather the effect that its occupants
had better get out and walk: but once thal they
have threaded the eye of the needle they are in?
deed m a broad way which leads to a suit of
rooms unequalled, I should say, In any theatre
in Europe, and "who says Europe, says the
world." Then we must turn to thc foyer
I pledge you my word that it is as big as
one of the loggie of thc Vatican. Years ago the
foyer of a Pans theatre was an institution-per?
haps the beaux jours will return willi more
space. We pass through miles of passages of
brick and stone buildings-walls as thick as any
I have ever seen in casements, and on which I
am sure the enemy, armed with the largest musi?
cal Instruments, will never produce any effect
and we Inspect the boxes. They are very nice.
By the way, officialism here is carried to thc very
extreme of the tape. A friend of mine made a
note. It was, I believe, to the effect that thc
"grand groups" outside arc not solid, but in de?
tached blocks; that hence Harmony has a flaw on
her throat and Composition a linc across her
Orow, which is true. "It ls entirely forbidden to
make notes here," was announced. Now In a
besieged fortress one can understand this; in an
unopened theatre one says, it is excessive cau?
tion. I am quite sure that none of our party
roar poor pilgrims from distant lands,
ind going to see the "Chatte Blanche"
had the least idea, even if we had
the means, which, Indeed, judging individually, I
.loubt, of building an opposition Grand Opera in
my capital In Europe. But I must go back to
Dur tour of Inspection. We went next to see the
dressing rooms of the ladles and gentlemen, and
were charmed. Then we went to sec the theatre
Itself. "Why, it ts not so big as the Olympic I"
was the cry. Yet I am told lt ls a little larger,
even; nay, it ls even bigger than thc now existing
Grand Opera of Paris, being capable, in fact, of
rontalning three hundred persons more-"and
they will all be comfortable" was said by our
eery taciturn guide. Now the present house con?
tains 1950, and they are certainly not all "com?
fortable." Standing with your face to the stage
the Impression would be, 1 think, that you had
traversed miles of massive masonry, climbed up
many stairs, gone through long lines of passages,
merely to see a very handsome but small theatre.
It is only when you pass on to the stage you dis
:o vcr the enormous size of the building, t he height,
width and depth of the actual stage lstelf,
ina the vast spaee which ls not seen from the
rront. You exclaim, "Why. this ls keeping the
promise of tue outsiae !" what wonderful spec?
tacles will our sons see on that vast scene; and
sr hen the whole pit, stage and back-stage arc
boarded over for thc bal masques, what a sight it
?ill be ! There is only one epithet for the size of
the stage, and that is "vast." You must under?
stand, too. distinctly that the theatre only seems
miall, while lt is very large; and I suppose that,
is there is a limit to the human voice divine, so
lhere must be a limit lo t he size of a theatre. Ad?
orning the stage, ami lu the old Ruc Neuve des
tfathurius, is the library of the theatre-very
large, as lt needs be, to contain all the manu?
scripts and printed music of a national opera of
IO long standing. The building itself looks as if
.ntended to lust as long as the monuments of
[lome, and will give a very distant New Zealander
i flue chance of a sketch.
Fire, too, would be, I should say. an impossi?
bility, there being, literally, nothing to burn; but
certainly what most strikes the unaccustomed
?ye ls the immense mass of stonework, the long
-ange of supplementary passages and stairs ne?
cessary to form a theatre. They cover between
leven and eight English acres of ground. Wc
?vere taken In nt the back or workmen's entrance,
ivhere we saw two Egyptian coluraus, not in good
?ste, and much too "small, which are to adorn
he actor's entrance; and then we were gradually
jrought baek to the place where wc had entered,
ind were thence dlsmisssed to our breakfasts.
They said, but lt has been almost contra
licted, that the 15th of November would
iee the whole of the outer works finished,
ind that on the 15th of August, 1870, the
muse would be opened. The flrst anticipa
ion is probable, but I doubt thc possibility of the
iccond. Inside there is nothing but the rough,
>are stones and the cement which binds them. 1
lave necessarily given you a very imperfect idea
>f the Interior of thc Grand Opera, but an archi?
ed alone could describe tho coming theatre from
he existing shell. As for statistics, tliev are
luite tabooed; they will not show you a model or
i plan, and the consigne of the man in uniform
vho is toled off to conduct you over thc structure

THE CHINESE PROBLEM.
V Practical Solution of thc (?in . ?iou.
[From the Overland Monthly.)
To tempt Chinese immigrants, and introduce
hem into our cotton States in Bnfllclent numbers
o further a higher prosperity, will require skilful
nanagement. Chinese merchants, entitled to es
ecui in their several companies, have latelv re?
amed from a prospecting tour to the Atlantic
.'oast, where universal kindness was bestowed
ipon them, and unmeasured good feeling mani
Csted toward their people. Pioneer gangs have
ately started for places in thc Eastern States,
vhere their labor is represented as almost a press
ng necessity. These, after a short period in n
ountry where all is new to them, write b^cn lo
heir friends accounts, favorable or otherwise, of
he locality, people aud occupation. Thus, by dc
;recs, through these means, au immigration will
?e established. They will come freely, when every
cttcr written home unites in confirming the en
:ouraglug assertions of those who visit China per*
onally, to start them forward. Thc travelled
;hlnainan, telling stories of his wanderings, will
.?corne a sage in his native district when describ
ng railroads, factories, ami numerous inventions
Foreigners will certainly come from the ovcr
Towded districts to a desirable country, with a
lopulation of less than ten persons, and to a State
vith only two anti a half persons to a square
nile. The national constitution makes no dis
irlmination regarding who may come, but affords
iqual tights to all. If Chinese present themselves
ve must admit them. Wc are bound by treaty
o afford them thc same protection we" accord
?Hier nationalities. Great nations cannot afford
o be unjust.
Rather than prevent their coming, if it were
)osslble, let us study to understand and become
nasters of the situation, and direct a system fur
lishlng us Asiatic laborers, so as to advance and
devate all of our present white laboring classes
iVho have within them ability to rise. Their iu
:roduction will be gradual but constant: and
liter supplylug the large deficit of labor at thc
South, and furnishing sufficient for the inaugura?
tion of new enterprises, it will enable all who are
capable to advance and keep pace witta thc gradu?
al withdrawal or their competitors from menial
labor to higher positions.
lt is the opinion of well-informed Chinese mer?
chants, who are close observers, that the annual
savings remitted to China by the 05,000 Chinese
now on thc Pacific coast do not exceed ?30 to
each man; against which, as a State, we have the
profit on 23,720,000 days' labor and ull permanent
Industries developed through their presence,
which afford further employment topare white
laborers. A very large portion of even this sum
sent to China generally goes to assist in bringing
more neighbors and friends to this country and
contributes largely to support American shipping.
Eight out of every ten ships plying between
California and China are American, Chinese mer?
chants having invariably given them preference,
even when compelled to pay war risks, which,
with all their other insurance, they give to our
local insurance companies. During the war their
merchants gave freely to the Sanitary Fund.
They have no desire for suffrage, and study to
keep out of politics. All return to China, general?
ly after about five years. A majority return here,
bringing others with them. If they die abroad,
their bodies are carefully prcverved, taken to
their native place, aud buried lu line at their an?
If California could manfacture as cheaply as
Massachusetts, she might retain annually $14,
000,000 in the State, which now go East to pay for
Imported goods. Her wealth may also be large?
ly Increased by employing Chinese In silk and tea
culture. In China, where the use of silk origina?
ted, lt was a noted Industry 4767 years ago-2808
B. C., or by Hebrew record, A. L. 1293. They arc
recorded as using silk strings for musical Instru?
ments, 3200 B. C. The world now annually pro?
duces silk valued at $225,380,000-over hair of
which still comes from China, Japan, aud thc
neighboring parts of Asia. Thc United States
produces but JlOO.OOO worth, and Imports
from $40,000,000 to $45,000,000 worth annually, of
which about $27,000,000 worth comes from France,
which, in 1860, manufactured $140,000,000, and ex?
poned $110,000,000, thus giving employment to
over 500,000 persons, aud adding vastly to her na?
tional wealth. We can furnish America all her tea
and silk, with '.he assistance of Chinese laborers.
California can thus, singly, settle our national ex?
changes, by a solution far" more satisfactory than
England, when she forced opium upon the Chi?
nese. Accessions of cheap laborers, without In?
terfering with those now here, would enable her
to supply herself and produee raisins, almonds,
olives, prunes, oil. tobacco and wine profitably for
export. These fields or productive Industry will
reap far ampler rewards, enriching California
more than any present export from the gold
fields. These ar'icles are, also, more valuable ns
exports, because annually produced and consum?
ed; while the production of gold is ningle and ex?
haustive, and not being perishable, its relative
value to other property diminishes in nearly the
ratio of its annually-Increasing value.

-In the City of Bristol, England, the annual
death-rate has lately been reduced from twenty
eight to twenty-two and a hah* per thousand of
the whole population; iu other words, there are
fewer deaths by a thousand In a year than for?
merly. Thc change ls ascribed to the action or a
health officer, Mr. Davies, who, aided by four in?
spectors, has visited every tenement court three
times a week, examined every house and closet,
dislnrected every nuisance, and superintended
the clearing or drains and thc whitewashing or
walls. Although a gr?a*, part or the population
live in these crowded courts, Mr. Davies has suc?
ceeded in extirpating typhus and other malignant
fevers, and has thoroughly interested thc laboring
people themselves in his measures.
-There was a very alarming shock or an earth
quake in and around Schemacha, in the Caucasus,
on the 21st ol August. Nearly the whole town,
with the neighboring town or Sundi, was de?
stroyed. Hardly a house escaped serious dam?
age. The earthquake signalized Its approach by
several phenomena, among which were an tinu
?ual turbidness ol t lie water and Hie prevalence
of an odor or garlic in the air. Duriug the
trembling the magnet lost Its attractive power.
The motion was undulatory, and thc earth-waves,
following different directions, met and crossed
each other. This wave-like rolling of the ground
was accompanied by a vertical movement which
has been but rarely observed in such phenomena.
Thc centra! point of thc earthquake was a chain
of mountains in the neighborhood or Schemacha.
-Asia is suffering from thc combined attacks
or cholera and a lamine. At Lucknow, thc deaths
from the former are averaging eight or ten a day.
During themonth of June alone there were 20,000
deaths from cholera in the central provinces, and
for the following two months the rate was not
much less. In Eastern Bengal there have certainly
been 20,000 deaths during the season, and in the
Punjab, Upper Bengal and Rajpootana the deaths
have at thc very least been sufficient to swell up
the grand total to 100,000 for the whole ol Eastern
and Central India. Six hundred Europeans have
perished ont of a scanty population of some iso,
000. Tlie famine Ls also doing its part towards the
diminution of the population. In Delhi rood has
risen to rour times thc usual price; rice that used
to be procurable at rorty seers (eighty pounds)
for thc rupee now commands a rupee for ten
seers, and in spite of the general well-to-do char?
acter or the population there ls widespread dis?
tress. People are selling off their idols and jewel?
ry lo keep themselves alive; the rood shops, ap?
prehensive, possibly, of riots, expend a large
share or their profits in dispensing provisions
gratuitously to the people. In Ajmere aud some
or the native States of Kajpootana the suffering is
dreadful. Ia Gwalior alone there have been two
thousand deaths from starvation in the past six
weeks. The Maharajah or .leyporc has expended
?l',o,ooo in reeding his people; but even this mu?

-Tlie following account or the recent torture
or a Christian woman by the Chinese, in Clinton,
comes to us in our latest foreign (Iles: ?A native
Christian woman, much respected by the Chris?
tians, and even by the pagans who were acquaint?
ed with her, has devoted herseir for twenty years
to iii" rescuing and bapUziug infants abandoned
by their parents, At thc beginning or July she
was arrested on the charge ol" practicing sorcery
upon young children, and or taking out their
eyes, the marrow or their bones, and even their
souls, with a view to the preparation or magical
remedies. She was several times savagely beaten
on the race with leathern straps to induce her to
confess lier guilt. In the midst of her tortures, how?
ever, she maintained thc greatest courage and con?
stancy in coufessiug the faith. S'ac was con
deiuucd to death, aud it was feared the sentence
would be immediately executed. Upon this M.
Girardin, the resident missionary, succeeded in
obtaining entrance to thc prison, heard her con?
fession, and administered to her the Holy Viati?
cum, whUe the bishop, Mgr. GniUemln, left no
means untried to obtain a respite. This was
granted, and the Viceroy spread a report that the
cause would he carried by appeal to Pekin. But
in thc meantime thc populace was excited to
fresh violence, and the mandarins subjected the
acensed to fresh examinations, forcing her to re?

Thc Subject of Marriage.
The Convention of Jewish Rabbis reassem?
bled in Philadelphia, on Friday last, at the resi?
dence of Rev. Dr. Hirsch. At the opening of the
session Rev. Dr. Hirsch called the attention of the
conference to the death of the great philanthro?
pist, George Peabody, and, warmly eulogizing
him, moved that the conference express its sym?
pathy. The president seconded the motion in fit?
ting expressions, and requested the convention to
rise, in token of respect, which was unanimously
acceded to, and ordered that the proceedings be
entered on the oillcial minutes. The following
resolutions were passed :
Thc dissolution of marriage pronounced by a
civil court is of full validity in the eyes of Juda?
ism, if the judicial documents furnish evidence
that both parties have consented thereto; where
the court issues, however, a decree of divorce by
constraint against one or the other parties, Juda?
ism recognizes the validity of such divorce then
only If thc grounds on which such a decree ls
issued are deemed sunk-lent in accordance with
the spirit of the Jewish religion. It is recom?
mended, '.lowcver, that the deciding rabbi obtain
the concurrence of competent men.
The decision of the question whether the hus?
band or the wife is to be declared, In doubtful
cases, as dead or lost, h to be left to the courts.
It was further resolved:
The command to marry the widow of a de?
ceased brother and of taking oif the shoe has lost
for us all understanding, all validity and bind?
Further-The male child of a Jewish motlier ls
by its birth not less than the female, in accord?
ance with a principle never disputed lu Judaism,
a member of the Jewish community.
The following propositions were adopted:
Thc benediction now in use ls to be replaced by
one which fully expresses the moral elevation of
the married state and emphasizes the biblical Idea
of the fusion of man and woman into one person?
ality and the Divine prohibition of Illegal Inter?
Polygamy is in direct opposition to the idea of
marriage. Thc marriage of a man with a second
wife can be as little valid, therefore, and as little
claim thc sanction of ecclesiastical authorities as
thc marriage of a woman already married to an?
other man is to bc considered null and void.
The Conference then adjourned to meet In Cin?
cinnati next year.
Fearful Murder in Bruaiels-Two La?
dies Murdered in their own Dwelling.
Tlie correspondent of the London Morning
Herald gives details of a fearful murder, still
shrouded in the deepest mystery, and perpetra?
ted in Brussels.
An elderly widow, Mme. Vandenpoel, occupied
a house at Ko. 7 Rue de Brabant, close to the ter?
minus of the Cologne Railway, together with her
daughter, an old maid, about forty years of age.
Thc liousebelonged to them, and they were very
well oh", but rather miserly In their habits. They
led a very quiet life, occasionally received a few
friends and neighbors, and very seldom went out.
On Friday last, the 15th Inst., their door remained
closed. A card was stuck np outside with the
word "absent" written upon lt. On thc previous
day a lady, who had rented their first floor,
had moved out, and the two ladies, who kept
no servant, were thus quite alone In the house.
The neighbors were rather surprised at their hav?
ing gone away without saying anything about lt,
but the notice aiilxed outside thc door prevented
any suspicion being entertained of any fool play.
Six days passed, and the notice still remained
nailed to thc door and neither Madame Vanden?
poel nor her daughter made their appearance.
The neighbors got alarmed. An old friend of
theirs bethought himself that they had relatives
at Louvain, und. thinking lt possible they might
have gone there on a visit, took train to Louvain,
but soon returned, having ascertained that the
ladles had not been there. He then put himself
In communication with the police. An entrance
was made into the house, and the murdered
bodies of tho mother and daughter were found
in the dining room. The daughter's corpse show?
ed signs of a fearful struggle; her hair had been
torn off In several places; her face was all over
scratches; her skull had been beaten In, after
an attempt at strangulation, which had left
Ineffaceable marks on her throat; thc body was
lying in a pool of blood. The mother had been
killed by repeated blows about the head, inflicted
by a hammer; lier head rested on her knees, as If
tn her terror she had wished to shut out some
dreadful sight. Thc cloth was laid In the dining
room for three persons, and the furniture was not
broken nor disturbed. The drawers of a writing
table were found open, and title-deeds, shares and
other securities in them are untouched. In the
bedroom of the mother the bed showed traces of
having been slept in. On the last day they were
seen alive. October 14, they were bustling about
the bouse. superintending the removal of their
tenant's furniture. During the evening or the
14th, the neighbors fancy thcv recollect hearing
some noise and men's voices, and supposed they
were receiving company. No clue whatever lias
been discovered to thc assassin, or rather assas?
sins, as it ls supposed there were two persons en?
gaged lu this bloody work.
Fourfold Murder In Belgium-T h r c c
Brothers put to Death.
Thc London Times of October li gives an ac
count of four murders committed by one man at
a village called Horno, near Mons, nearly thirty
miles from Brussels.
Tlie murderer, for about three years, has been
a small farmer and sheep dealer. His name is
Dessous-le-Mousticr. He is twenty-eight years of
age, and was married some three years ago to
thc daughter of a farmer. He was acquuinted
willi three brothers who were extensive traders
in sheep, near thc forest of Audennes. The elder
brother, Pierre Joseph Thirion, aged sixty-two.
was on friendly terms with the murderer, and in
March, 186s, called upon him on business. He
was never again seen alive, and it was known
that he had upon him thc sum of three thou?
sand francs. About a month afterward his
brother, Nicholas Thirion, aged lifty-clght, visited
thc prisoner to make Inquiries respecting
his missing brother, but he never return?
ed to his home in the forest. A month still
later-namely. May, 1808-thc youngest of
thc three brothers, Gustave Thirion, aged forty
two years, went in search of his brother, and
shared the same fate. The mysterious disap?
pearance of the three brothers naturally excited
considerable suspicion, aud Dessous-le-Moustier
was called before the authorities and interrogated,
but gave such a plausible explanation that, In the
absence of any proofs, he was discharged. A few
days ago lils wife became suddenly ill, and he re?
fused her medical aid, but she induced a neigh?
bor, who accidentally called in, to send the vil?
lage doctor. She rallied a little, but afterwards
had another attack, under which she sank. Before
her death she mude some disclosures respecting
her husband, and avowed thc belief that he had
poisoned her. The doctor eoiiilrmcd her sus?
picions, and, acting on this information, the man
was arrested. The previous suspicious then re?
vived, and thc dying wife's disclosures prompted
an examination ol' the premises of thc prisoner.
An old pit that had been lilied up in his garden
was excavated, and there at different depths
were found tlie remains of tho three victims. Of
course considerably decomposed. In poisoning
Iiis wile the wretch appears to have hail a double
motive. A woman in the neighborhood has co?
habited with him and is enceinte. To bring this
paramour into his home, and at thc same time to
rid himself of thc only dangerous witness of his
previous crimes, he resolved to com pass lier
death. When arrrcstcd and charged with the
murder of his wife, he, with great coolness, ex?
claimed, "Oh ! is that all r" He was on Saturday
confronted with the remains of his victims, but
was very collected and disclaimed all knowledge
of the matter. He has, however, since admitted
his guilt, and inculpated an old man, who has
been arrested, as an accomplice, lie pleads for
speedy execution. Thc stomach. Ac, ol' his wife
are in the hands of au eminent analyst in Brus?
sels for examination. The remains bf the three
murdered brothers were on Sunday interred in
thc village cemetery, iu thc presence ol' thousands
of spectators from the surrounding towns and
villages. _ _
SLEEP POR SALE.-De Quincey says that
when he tirst purchased opium, it was like dis?
covering thal pleasure could be brought by the
bottle and oblivion by the rules of liquid measure.
The New York Medical Society is making known
the fact that something very like this has been
done in thc discovery ol' thc anaesthetic known as
chloral-hydrate. When the proper quantity is ju?
diciously injected, a sound, refreshing sleep en?
sues, from which thc patient awakes with tiie ap?
petite and resilient spirits which follow the sleep
of health. It is said to bc superior to ether, chlo?
roform and morphine, and may be taken with
water, mucilage or orange-peel. It is due to the
experiments ol' Dr. Liebright, or Berlin, who first
brought lt to light last July, and was introduced
into this country three weeks ago by Dr. Jacoby.
With tlie exception of the small quantity brought
by Dr. Jacoby, there Ls none in the United States,
so that its success among sleepless Americans re?
mains to bo tried.
