-In opening the summer course of lectures
at Surgeons' Hall, Edinburgh, Dr. Eeiller
staled that, had Miss Elisabeth Garrett entered
in'.o competition at the written examination ot
the previous year, she would have carried off
tho 3rst prize. Dr. Hellier said that, on
handing the diploma of doctor of medicine to
Miss Garrett, now Mrs. Garrett Anderson, he
Ead the satisfaction ol telling her that she was
entitled to the flr.-t medal, and that if there
were to be many graduates like her, lite male

-There has been a lively competition for
the possession ot Rulloff 's head. Three differ
on: parties opened the grave at Binghamplon
on Friday night, with a view to disinter the
par t ol' the body which had never been burled.
The prize was in the hands of a committee of
doctors, who found it almost as difficult to
reach his brain as other people had to get at
his moral consciousness. The skull was from
three-eighths to halt an inch thick-the aver?
age thickness of ordinary skulls being less
than a quarter ot an inch. The scalp was of a
toughness io match, and the cords of his neck
are said, with a slight tendency to exaggera?
tion, to have been as heavy and strong as
those of an ox. Altogether, Rulloff seems to
have had exceptioual natural advantages to fit
him for the dangers Incident to the life of a
criminal; and as his unusually large bruin was
chiefly developed around the base, strong
animal vigor and general absence' ol moral
pei caption In the man are, doubtless, satislac- .
torily explained to all siudents of the philoso?
phy ol the cranium.
-Late European correspondence gives in?
teresting views of life in and around Paris.
At Marseilles lor the past few days all amuse?

given place to the interest or watching the
combat of artillery, and one sees hundreds of
them perched upon walls and fences, their
eyes or lorgnettes carefully following Hie firing
Of the batteries, and in perfect silence noting
the effect o? the shells" on either side. Now
and then their couriers are seou riding rapidly
across the Heids, showing that every phase of
the combat going on is quickly carried to head,
quarters, where the officers are always ready
to call their men tc arms. The scenes about
the gales of Paris, where hundreds of women,
as a general thing (he honest wives, sisters or
mothers of the men beyond the wai lu, gather
about the post for the purpose of getting news ,
from ihe front, are extremely sad. From
morning un tu night they huger lhere, weep?
ing bitterly at limes, Insensible to pam or fa?
tigue, gazing eagerly into the face of every
wounded man -carried by, and pressing with '
-questions all who will pause lo hear chem. 1
-New uses for paper are continually dis- '

claimed for the use ot paper for this purpose
are, that it is noiseless, does not swell or

- the N.-w York Mall says: '?Alfred Zieg
meyer, the German who wus brought lo this
pori lu t he Weser yesteniac, lo answer a charge
ol murdering Will-am Gumbleton.iu Chicago in
March, is a young mau uventy one years of
age, ot mild and even pleasant a id rene, wiib
features in ?viucii li would bu ilitBcull to trace
indic t'ions of me ferocity and tieieruilualioa
usually associated willi great entum?is. He is
about Ave leet lea inches m lieigut, slightly
but strongly built. Tue shape ol his head is I
remarkable, his skull, at the back, being per?
fectly Sat, as if crashed In by tbe application
of some enormous pressure. His face is al?
most circular, owing to thc great width Of
the cheek-bones; and the most singular
feature lu it is the great space between the
eyes, which are small and of a light blue color.
Zeigmey er says that he ?asl saw Gumbleton in
a lager beer saloon, on the evening, he thinks,
of the 13th ol November. On the following
day, findiug that Gumbleton did not return to
his lodgings, he appropriated bis effects, and
among t'uein :Le letter ot credit on which be
alterwards raised tue money. He confesses
this thei., but velrcmeally denies that he is a
murderer. After possessing himself ol the
money, lie says he went to Europe, not deem?
ing he would be pursued, and accounted for
his sudden wealth to his parents by reporting
that he had been fortunate in speculation.
The first use he made of the money was tc
pay off i. mortgage on bis father's farm, and
he wa3 anticipating a life of comparative ease
when he waa arrested. He told lils story at
police headquarters to-day fluently and natu?
rally, but is evidently ill at ease in his mind,
and trembled several times during its recital.
The City Election.
It ?3 now many weeks 3ince the Radica!
organ in this city made a distinct and forma!
proposition looking to the avoidance of s
political conte3t in the approaching citj
election, by the nomination of a mixed 01
compromise ticket, to be nude up of tb*
be9t anl most moderate men of both par?
ties. The proposition, we believe, was mad?
itt gooc. faith, and the movemen:, if practl
cable, seemed to ua eminently wise and
timely, as affording the only pertain pros?
pect of an improvement in the administra?
tion of our municipal affairs. TnE NEWS,
therefore," as an independent journal, hold?
ing the welfare of this community above all
considerations of party sueeeef?, gave its
prompt and uaqualiOed approval to the
plan. Some of our friends expressed sur?
prise al. our course, aud we were honored
with moro than one anonymous communi?
cation intimating, in terms more energetic
than polite, that this paper had "gone over"
to the enemy. But a majority, as we have
reason to kdow, of our solid business raen
cf Lhos2 who have the largest 'stake in the
future of Charleston-were heartily with ns
in our endorsement bf any scheme that
promised to wrest the government of our
fair cit.r from the clique of ignorant, vicious
and waal politicians who now, in great
measure, control it. A striking evidence pf
the strength of this feeling may be found in
thc correspondence with General R. H. An?
derdon, which we print to-day. A very large
number of citizens offered that gentleman a
nominr.tion for the Mayoralty. In a modest
aud characteristic letter he requests them, in
view cf the proposed compromise, not to
press Iiis nomination at this time. We are
assured that the General's manly and disin?
terested letter is received by hisftiendsin
the spirit in which lt WES written, and that
they arc uow iu full accord with his Yiews.
-It remains for those who originated the
idea of a compromise to show what real
Strength, if any, they can muster in support
of the plan among those for whom they
claim lo speak. ''Fine words," the proverb
tells u3, "butter no par3nip3," and while
the nole of active preparation and organiza?
tion resounds in the cump3 of the black
Uudia.ls all around us, the white people of
Charleston demand something more than
pretty phrases to convince them that all this
means Peace, and not War.
Narrow Gnu Rt Railroads.
The world moves. Macadam ization a few
years back was considered the perfection of
road-making. Railroads, however, proving
so immeasurable un improvement over the
"old way," rapidly commended themselves to
intelligent and enterprising minds through?
out the globe, till our own day, when'
plank roads and McAdam are scarcely
ever heard of. The one great obstacle to j
the n J i versal introduction of railroads has
hitberto beet: their inordinate cost. But fur
the great expense of construction, every
neighborhood would have its railroad-every
rtllage, town and hamlet would send its
: hariet, drawn by the snprting iron horse, to
avery other neighboring .town. But rail?
roads cost money-in -fact, a great deal of
money to build ; and even after they are
built the." -jost a great deal to "run," and
keep io repair; so much so that it is perhaps
safe to say that in the majority of cases,
throughout the United States, the original
stockholders or builders of railroads have
been losers thereby, however great benefit
their public spirit may have conferred upon
the ^tate or country at large, by facilitating
There is a remedy at ha'nd. The four feet
eight-and-a-half gauge, hitherto deemed in?
dispensable, ?3 now 6hown by competent
engineers, and by actual proof, to have in?
volved an enormous waste of material,
power and money. Narrow gauges, of one
foot eleven-and-a-half inches, two feet six
inches, and three feet, are now being built
in various paris of the world, and are found
perfectly safe, ample for all business rvquire
inents, and incomparably cheaper than the
old broad gau^e lines. The narrowest gauge
of which we bave heard-23? inches-is in
use ou a shem railroad of thirteen miles, be?
tween ihe slate quarries of Festiniog and Port
MuilOCk, in Wales. When the company first
begun to'carry passengers on this line, the
government inspector of railroads limited
the rate of speed to twelve miles an boor.
UH I I LUS since given authority to run tim pas?
senger trains ut any rate of speed they may
think fi'; and in dis last official report be
uffir-ris that he ..travelled over this lilli?)
"road at thirty miles au hour, with ?very
"feeling of safely." Engineers In different
paris of Hie-world have for some years past
hud their attention lurued to this subject,
and deviation!?, irrfuier or less, from the old
broud guille liuvii berni made, generally with
SUCOesej t'Ut this-.xp. rim.iiit in Wub-s hue
gone so tar beyond nil preceding attempts,
thal, it has naturally attracted great alten
tior; ami accoruingly we find that nearly
every government of Europe bas sent its
best engitfoers to the slate quarries of Wale3
to witness thc new railroad wonder. There
are several lines-also now being constructed
in thi3 country.-.on the new principle, among
them the line,'-three'hundred miles long,
froin Santa Fe to Denver City.
The saving.of the new over the old method
is much greater than any one not familiar
with thc details of railroad building would
imagine. The roadbed of the present broad
gauge is almost uniformly eighteen feet wide
iu cuttings and fourteen feet wide ot em?
bankments. The reduction of two feet in
the gauge would allow of more than a cor?
responding redaction in the width ot em?
bankments. It is also acknowledged by the
most eminent engineers that a narrow gauge
admits of steeper grades and sharper
corves ; both of which items sensibly dimin?
ish the cost of construction. The same les?
sening of C03t applies to tunnels, bridges,
culverts, sleepers, cross-ties, ballasting,.?c.
The smaller weight of the trains, too, admits
the use of lighter rails. Io fact the cost of
construction of a narrow gauge line may be
fairly put down as .at least $10,000 a mile
less than that of a broad gauge line. But
;roat as it is, the first cost of construction
of a broad gauge line is not a greater drain
on tho resources o' railroad companies than
the excessive cost of operating them. But
this saving will be better understood by a
comparative estimate ; and we therefore
1 subjoin the following, furnished by Messrs.
I Paul Brothers, o? Akron, Ohio, based on
the plan3 and profiles of a survey lately
made by them, for a railroad of one hundred
miie3 on the three feet, and oe the four feet'
eighi-and-a-haif inch gauges. Each system
is supposed to have an identical line, and
the same maximum gradient of 528-10 feet
to the mile:

Of eourse, in a twenty-three-and-a-half
inch gauge, the saving will be still greater;
in fact it bas been ascertained that the cost
of 'construction decreases in geometrical
ratio to the lessening of the gauge.
This is an eminently practical subject, and
will readily commend itself to railroad men,
engineers, and to thinking men generally.
It can hardly fail to exercise a potent influ?
ence lo the development of the more sparsely
Bottled portions of our country. The great
reluctance of capitalists hitherto, and even
now, to embark in railroad enterprises, has
been the almost universal conviction that
they 'cannot be made to pay the construc?
tion, i. e., the stockholder. But this is solely
because the cost of building and stocking
them has beeu much greater than necessary.
We arc ^ on the brink of a great revolu?
tion in ru.iioad building, and we earnestly
hope that South Carolina may ere long en?
joy nor share of benefit from this great and

been too many of these lawless gangs in some
sections nf the State ; but the truth is not near
sobad PS the Radical Journals are disposed to
believe. It bas become the fasbion to send
Ku-Klux notices, with a skull and cross-bones,
and horrid Imitation of a coffin, to every ob?
noxious character who has rendered himself |
locally infamous by his. official conductor pri?
vate misdeeds. In many instances, these
'warnings' are the poorest kind of jokes.
'.Where have the genuine Ku-Klux ever
given warning of their approach ? We believe
there ls such an organization, and that it was
originally intended for the purification of the
country and the protection of .good citizens
against lawless characters. But Its purposes
have been sadly perverted, and in tills State
there are numerous deeds attributed to this
organization never contemplated for a moment
'in ihe sccrel recesses of thal mysterious band.
Indeed, we confidently believe that only one
or two instances of retribution may be right-1
