The case of thc United States vs. Tennessee
railroads is compromised by consent of counsel.
The roads will remain In possession of the respec?
tive company organizations, and after paying
running expenses and interest on State bonds,
the balance of earnings will be subject to the
claims of the Federal Government. Tnis action
defeats the motion of the government to place
the roads in the hands of receivers. It is thought
that an equitable settlement will show that

TRANSFUSION OF BLOOD.
Another Carlon? Case.
The Philadelphia Ledger relates that this ope?
ration, which consists in the actual transfer of the
blood of one living body into the veins of another
has been recently performed in the Pennsylvania
Hospital under the following circumstances:
A young man in the upper part of the city was
wounded on the inner surface of the upper Hp by
tripping and falling on the fragments of a pitcher
which he had been carrying In his hand. The
wound continued te bleed for ten days; after
which time the patient was sent to the surgical
wards of the hospital, which were at the time
under the charge of Dr. T. G. Morton. Several
remedies were then applied, and the arteries sup?
plying the face were tied, but without success In
controlling the flow of blood. Rceourse was next
had to cutting down to the common carotid or
great artery of the neck, and applying a ligature,
so as to obstruct entirely thc course of thc blood
in it. This was done on thc 18th or October lost.
The oozing of blood still continued, but In les?
On the following day, or the 19th, the patient
was in such a state of extreme exhaustion from
the long-continued hemorrhage, that his death
seemed to be imminent, and, as a last resource,
Dr. Morton resolved to try the effect of trans?
fusion. Wc sholl not pretend to describe the ap?
paratus used on the occasion, or the details of thc
operation. Let it suffice for us to say that two
medical students bared their arms and gave the
blood required for the occasion. Five ounces and
a half of their blood were Infused into the vein of
each arm of the patient, the marked good effects
of which were evinced In Ave minutes by a rally?
ing of the pulse and otherwise beginning reac?
tion. There was no further discharge of blood
from the original wound, and In ten days the pa?
tient was able to walk m the ward, and rapidly
Whatever may be the termination of this case,
regarded as one of a wound with complicated
symptoms, there can be no question of the entire
success of the operation of transfusion, and of its
saving Ufe and restoring the patient, for a while
at least, to the exercise of his ordinary functions.

[SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE NEWS.]
COLUMBIA, November 12-9 P. M.
The State Fair closed at 5 o'clock to-day.

After thc Fair had closed, sales were made, at
good prices, of a large part of the stock which
had been exhibited. A number ot miscellaneous
articles were also sold.
There was no tournament to-day. Appropriate
costumes were lacking, and there was no dispo?
sition to mar the uniform brilliancy of the Fair
by a partial success at thc close. The festivities
end to-night with a ball at the Columbia Hotel.
A large number of visitors to the Fair left Co?
lumbia to-night homeward bound.
Notes of the Fair.
Among the specimens or manuracturcs are sev?
eral rolls or leather-kip, cair, sole and harness
exhibited by Colonel Thomas, of Columbia. This
leather is tanned here and, looks, and doubtless
is, as fine as the best bought in the Baltimore
market. The entire material ls of native growth
except the dressing oil. The exhibitor claims that
he can manufacture this leather at mere reason?
able rates here than it can be bought in the
North. Labor is cheaper, fuel is cheaper, mate?
rials are from our own woods and hills, and can
be gathered at less expense. The old channels of
trade, however, arc sometimes hard to turn.
There is on exhibition by Dr. Morse, of Green?
ville, a specimen of Northern kaolin flue or chim?
ney pipe, to be run between the timbers of Train?
ee buildings, thus saviHg the expense or chimneys
of brick, as ls usual. The flue ls four by twelve
inches, and costs in the North about 25 cents a
foot, while transportation and breakage run the
cost up to thirty or more. Mr. Morse claims that
he can manufacture a ie?Ta colfa Due or same
use, durability and safety, at his ractory in Green
vUle, at a cost of about 20 cents a root. Feldspar
and fine clays abound in Greenville. Earthen?
ware is also on exhibition, Identical in quality
with Northern wares, and can bc sold here for less
A COMBINATION RAIL.
Thc new rail invented by Mr. H. T. Peake, the
General Superintendent or thc South carolina
Railroad, which takes the gold medal, combines
all the advantages or thc steel and thc iron rail. As
is well knowu a steel rail is too brittle to bear the
pounding of heavy trains running at high speed.
The irou rail ls not hard enough and wears out
rapidly. And the steel-faced rail, on account of
the unequal expansion and contraction of face
and body, soon becomes unserviceable, thc face
peeling orr. The Peake rail has all the softness
and toughness or the iron and all thc hardness of
the steel. It is made In two parts. Thc lower
part or thc bed, ls made or iron uud is spiked to
the ties in the usual way. Into this bed
Ats a cap of steel which is secured by
bolts passing through the bed. This cap or head
ls hard enough to bear the heaviest travel, while
the elasticity of the bcd makes breakage virtually
impossible. Ncr ls there any loss of spikes in
changing the head of the rail. The bed will scarce?
ly wear at al!, and, when thc tics are good, the
bolts are unscrewed, a new head is slipped in the
bed, the bolts are made fast, and spikes, bed and
ties are not ;a any way disturbed. Mr. Peake has
already applied for a patent for what promises to
be a very useful invention.
The portable turuace ror shrinking and remov?
ing tires, patented Ly Mr. W. Bell Smith, is a val?
uable invention. One bushel of charcoal will
shrink on any size tire, two and a half inches
thick, with one-sixteenth allowance for expan?
sion, In less than thirty minutes, and will remove
an old tire in less than twenty minutes, not heat?
ing the wheel centre enough to injure the paiut.
Thc furnace is spoken of very highly by our first
practical machinists and railroad men.
Thc biack doeskin, beaver cloth, cassimere and
flannels exhibited by the Rock Island Manufactu?
ring Company, of Charlotte, N. C., attracted gen?
eral attention. These goods are or linc quality,
and show the rapid progress made by the South
in attaining a manufacturing excellence of which
her people may be proud.
WARTS AND CLOTHS.
The cotton yarns .md cloths of the Batesville
Company arc of fine texture, and won the admi?
ration or every housewife, as did thc warps ex?
hibited by the Saluda Factory.
BOOTS AND SHOES.
Vogler A Co., or Salem, N. C., exhibited a case or
boots and shoes of all kinds, from the tiny gaiter
of the lady, to the daisey-crusher or the roll grown
man. The shoes and boots are well made, and
are sold at a low price. They took the prize
the Raleigh State Fair.
THE BIG DOO
On exhibition is a large dog, or the St. Bernard
breed, which breed or dogs, according to popular
belief, live altogether with monks in out-of-the
way places in mountains, and as soon as the
snow lays well, rush out, pick up frozen travellers
laying around loose, place them upon their back
carry them to the monasteries, and request a Ut tie
wine and food for their burdens. This animal
a fine specimen of a canine, and is owned by
gentleman living in Columbia. He bas giv
several indications of his humanity and affection
ror human beings, by chewing up the arm or
little girl, and yesterday bit a man who was
standing near the railing, inside of which he
chained. A veiy pretty young lady very prettily
called him "Bruno," ''Bruno,'' and he appeared
to like it so well, that he Induced the young lady
to pat him, whereupon lie snapped at her hand
and succeeded In tearing off ?1 portion of her
glove, fortunately not injuring b.w. He is not
fond of dogs, and, it is said, that when his master
turns him loose to "air" himself about Columbia
the resident dogs immediately go to see their
country relatives, and there remain until St. Ber
nard is rechalned.
The Visitors and Hotels.
The hotels during the Fair have been packed
and jammed, and from each house come start
ling tales of omnibus loads of visitors turned
roomless away. At thc Columbia Hotel, where
your representative has stayed, four hundred
and eighty persons were accommodated at one
time. Tills was accomplished by squeezing and
doubling up, and the proprietors and their as
sistants showed a laudable desire to make every
one comfortable. They did stow half a dozen
persons in one room and make one wait an awrul
time for dinner; but they did all that hotel keep
ers could do, kept thc crowd in good humor, and
maintained the reputation of the house. Mr
Davis, the bookkeeper, and Mr. Kinloch, thc
clerk of the Columbia Hotel, were as untiring
and energetic as they were courteous and atten
AN UGLY INCIDENT.
The crowd, which has made thc town and it
hotels present a very lively appearance, conse
quently makes every one uncomfortable; all, how
ever, bear their little troubles with most cora
mendable patience. Thc difficulty experienced in
obtaining sleeping quarters is very great. Last
night at thc Columbia Hotel pallets were spread
in the barber shop and in the parlor ror the male
boarders. Early this morning they were turned
out or both places. Onc,*howcvcr, who had his
pallet partly behind a sora, slept on arter thc oth
ers had made their toilets and had gone. Abou
seven o'clock many voices and laughter aroused
him, and to his intense horror he saw that thc
parlor was nearly full of ladies. To think
with him was to act. His clothes were under
his head. Placing these inside of thc blanket,
which he then rolled gently around him, and
with head and ears and feet covered, rolled hastily
out of the parlor; then bounded to a place of safe?
ty, leaving his boots to the mercy or the ladies
whose surprise at seeing a mass or what-they
knew-not moving rapidly across the floor, can be
better imagined than described.
REWARD OF MERIT.
During tne aay, a cuiureu woman, witli a hus?
band who is about fifty-five or sixty years of age,
bearing In her arms three female Infants, and
surrounded by eight children, applied for tickets
of admission. On lt being stated that a short
time since the three infants were born unto her at
one birth, she was granted a free pass. She and
all of her children appear to be healthy.
The State Agricultural and Mechanical Society
met again last (Thursday) night. Various re?
ports were made. For the year 1870, the Execu?
tive Committee were authorized to expend $10,000.
The following officers were elected for the ensu?
ing year: Johnson Hagosd, president; Dr. A. M.
Forster, William M. Lawton, William Wallace,
Thomas W. Woodward, vice-presidents; D. Wyatt
Aiken, secretary and treasurer; w. s. Henerey,
Edwin McIntosh, J. B. Palmer, J. P. Thomas, R.
J. Gage, Executive Committee. Hon. John Town?
send having declined a re-election, his place has
been filled by thc former eltlcicnt secretary or
the society, Col. Gage. On motion, a committee
was appointed to nominate delegates to the
Macon Agricultural Convention.
THE EMPRESS IS THE EA ST.
How Eugenic was Greeted by the Grand
Turk-Tin Mother of the Sultan Snubs
his Fair Visitor.
A Constantinople lotter of October 13, to the
New York Tribune, says:
It was a bcautirul sight when the Empress'
yacht, along with twenty steamers, came to-day
into thc Bosphorus, which was almost literally
covered with caiques. Thc Empress was on deck
with hair a dozen other ladles all the time. In
about ten minutes the Sultan, who had been wait?
ing lier arrival at the palace, came out to her
yacht in one or the most magnificent of boats,
manned by twenty men, with a gorgeous
throtie and canopy at the stern. Arter some
difficulty in getting alongside thc yacht,
thc Sultan rushed up thc stairs with no
little empressement. She met him at the top
with a cordial greeting, but did not kiss him,
remembering, perhaps, her own reelings when she
saw Napoleon kiss Queen Victoria. They then fell
back and looked at each other a moment. As they
could not talk they did the next best thing; they
bowed at each other, and then the Empress went
down luto the Sultan's boat. He followed Imme?
diately, and they sat side by side. She
wore a plain high necked dress of straw-colored
satlu, with a trail two yards long, and a bonnet of
the same color. Thc current in front of the palace
ls very strong. Five hundred caiques and twenty
five steamers crowded with people were jammed
togelherin liorribleconfusion, and I can hardly un?
derstand now how we all got out of it without loss
or life. The Sultan, on landing, conducted the Em?
press to her apartments and left her to rest there
rorsomc minutes. He then presented to her all the
Ministers of the Sublime Porte and thc runctioua
ries or the palace.and hastened across to lils oillcial
place at Dohna Baghdie, whither the Empress
followed him in about an hour, to pay her re
pec ts to thc Valide Sultana (Sultan's mother.)
This old woman is, by unalterable custom, su?
preme within thc palace, and she docs not at all
approve or thc way In which thc Sultan is dis?
gracing himseir with this bold-raced Infidel wo?
man. She has thrown every possible obstacle In
her way. ami made herself Just as disagreeable as
she dared. She could not refuse to see her to-day,
but she overturned thc arrangements of t he Sultan
by reruslng to receive thc Empress with Musta?
pha Pasha's daughter as lady in waiting and in?
terpreter. She said she would teach Mussulman
girls not to learn infidel languages and not to as?
sume Infidel customs. The visit ol thc Empress
to her was short and ronna!, and she passed out
or Ute harem Into thc apartment or the Sultan
to dine with him in state. No doubt thc
Valide Sultana ground her teeth with rage,
and no doubt she will rate thc Sultan,
ror lils indecent violation or all propriety;
but thc deed is done, and she will rave lu
vain. A shameless female giaour has gone where
even thc Sultan's mother was never permitted to
go. This shows more real pluck on the part of
thc Sultan than you can well realize. Thursduy,
Eugenie received thc diplomatic corps at Beyler
bcy. In conversation with Mr. Morris, our mlnls
Ister resident, thc Empress declared that there
was nothing which she more desired than to visit
America; that she was only waiting ror some pre?
text for going, which she hoped would be round
before long. She conversed with a!l the ladies in
their own languages. She speaks English re?
markably well, and certainly looks more like an
English than a Spanish lady. During the recep?
tion, she wore a robe of amber satin, with a very
rull train, (with hoops, too, I believe,) trimmed
with mauve velvet; her bounet was also amber
colored. Her only Jewelry was a pear! necklace,
and she wore no ear-rings.

perpetrated on the customer." "in such cases,"
lt says, "neither the doctor nor thc druggist is

-The Cologne Gazette, in commenting upon
the influence exercised upon the Emperor Napo?

for Foreign Affairs, contends that his advice was
thc moving cause of thc changes recently made
in the Constitution of France. Thc Gazette
asserts that Lord Clarendon, finding that recent
events had prepared the French Cabinet for a
peaceful policy, made the best use of the golden
opportunity, and showed the Emperor that a mo?
derate reform would deprive the opposition of its
sharpest weapons, and help to secure his dynasty.
In foreign affairs Lord Clarendon recommended
non-intervention in German matters, and that
every step which might hurt the pride of Prus?
sia should be avoided. It is asserted that Clar?
endon has never used his influence to impede
the reconstruction of Germany, notwithstanding
the general belief that his leaning towards Aus?

archists and republicans going freely and quietly
about thc streets examining thc destruction
caused by their dissensions. The force accumu?
lated for the capture of Valencia, where the in?
surgents amounted to about 10,000 ill-trained
men, was out of all proportion to the resistance
expected. The Spanish army consisted of thirty
battalions of Infantry, two thousand cavalry,
fifty-six field guns, besides a heavy siege train.
Resistance was, therefore, useless, and the policy
of crushing out the revolution at once, though at
a heavy expense, was less injurious than a pro?
tracted conflict. Bexar, where a republic bad
been proclaimed, held out for a short time after
Valencia fell; but as soon as news of the ap?
proach of the regular army was received, the In?
surgents abandoned the town. One or two petty
encounters with the remain? of thc Insurgent ar?

girls in Europe: "I do not wish to undervalue

It is not only their beauty and grace, but their

A SHOCKING RECITAL.
Disgraceful Criminal Practice In New
York-A Mur tcrcd Man's Head Severed
from tlic Body nm! Laid Before Ute
Some time last Mareil the body oi'a man named
Joachim Fuertcr was round, horribly mutilated,
lying in a Held near New City, Rockland County,
New York. Antoine Maurer, a Frenchman, was
Subsequently arrested, tried ror murder, round
guilty and sentenced to be hanged on ihe Pth of
December next. A correspondent ol the New
York World gives a long account of the incidents
or the murder and Hie trial or the condemned.
The writer then says:
Circumstances more startling than any that
have ever accompanied the administration or jus?
tice in this country, I believe, marked tho course
or this trial. That they have never before occur?
red has been due to the enforcement of the prin?
ciple-running through every code and statute
book-that every advantage for defence shall bc
given to the accused, so tneir existence in this
ease ls to be credited to the thirst for vengeance
upon the supposed murderer that has been, since
last spring, upon every man's lips in this horror
stricken couutrv. That I have to write these
facts, that have" never before been published of
any court of justice in America, is one of thc
evidences of thc decay of our judicial integrity:
and let me express the hope that publicity will
raise a fervor or indignation against these per
vcrtcrs or justice that will help to prevent a re?
currence of their ghastly deeds.
During the time that FueiWs body lay unre?
cognized after its discovery in the corn field, the
thought of severing the head from thc trunk and
preserving it for identification seized the mind
or the prosecuting attorney. This course might
be pronounced commendable, hut the death head
was not used alone ror this purpose. When the
poor little villain Maurer was safely lodged In
his prison cell, and when evidence was accumu?
lating daily to fas:en more and more firmly the
guiltiness of this dark crime upon him, then it
was that the fiendish genius of thc district attor?
ney developed a new idea. The murderer should
he confronted with the face of his victim; the
pale features and sunken eyes should meet him
at unexpected moments; the grim head should
be popped at him from beneath common table
blankets and out of prison buckets; it should bc
rolled at him in his couch and presented to his
horrified vision in thc dead of night; thus it was
hoped a confession might be wrung from him in
thc startled moments of his dread when this un?
earthly object should bc thrust upon him. And
this scheme was carried out. I have it through
one of the gentlemen most prominent in the
prosecution, that the prisoner before his trial
wanted to wash his hands one day, and thc
opportunity was taken to confront him then
with all that was left of the murdered mau
Fuerter. Maurer, when he repeated the second
time his request, was sent Into an adjoining cell,
where he was told he would find a bucket of water.
He went and he was watched. As he stooped to
dip his hand in the pail the hideous face was
there-the grizzly features marked with the hor?
ror of the death struggle. There was terror mark?
ed on the face of the poor prisoner when he ran
out of the cell from the ghostly bucket, but his
laughing spectators saw or heard nothing that
thry could construe into a proof his guilt. Again,
when he sat in the hall off which his cell opens, a
blanket suddenly lifted from the table by him re?
vealed again the cadaverous head. How horrible
ls this story in the recital ! When I heard it from
the lip* -of one of the most reliable and estimable
citizens of the county, I felt a terror that it is
hard for me now to describe or ta? realize. What
must have t>een the horror of the puny little pris?
oner when he met in that gloomy cell the gaze of
the deathly eyes is more than I care to imagine. I
could hardly credit these facts, but when 1 learn?
ed that the head ls still within the prison, and
when I was shown thc can in which it ls still pre?
served, I could no longer doubt that in Rockland
County they have discovered a new method of
procuring proof in cases of crime.
The district attorney, under whose directions
these little incidents were carried out, is a young
man-very young and inexperienced-and was
appointed to fill a vacancy by Governor Fenton.
It is currently reported that his appointment was
made upon the reception of a telegram by the
Governor, and that lt was then supposed that the
person named in thc dispatch was the appointee's
father, who is a very respectable gentleman.
Some of these strange rumors coming to the ear
or the French Consul General In New York, he visit?
ed the prisoner a few days ago in company with a
large party or French gentlemen. It is rumored
that he promised the prisoner to use his influ?
ence in procuring a demand lor a new trial and
fair play for his fellow-countryman, for it ls
stated that there were other "Irregularities'' con?
nected with tko trial and the evidence, which
gave Just grounds for the demand. That there
cannot be much doubt as to Maurcr's complicity
in thc murder, I firmly believe; but it is also cer?
tain that his conviction was accomplished by
circumstances that are a blot upon our civiliza?
tion. The French residents of New York are deeply
Interested in the case, and Maurer receives daily
packages or wine and rood from them. He is
visited also frequently by parties of Frenchmen;
who are anxious to assist him in obtaining fair
play. Maurer has made two or three confessions,
but since the visit or the French Consul he has de?
clined to venture any information. The state?
ments that he made arc conflicting in almost
every particular, and there are those here who
believe that the prisoner had become partially de?
ranged by his confinement and his incessant
thinking over of thc testimony brought forward
against him. His conversation is certainly wan?
dering, and sometimes Insane. Thc same estima?
ble lady, who took his confession In the French
language, now visits him from time to time to
time to pray with him and offer him religious in?
struction. He appeared to be well schooled in
thc doctrines of his church, repeating the con?
fession of raith and his prayers with great fluency.
