Orl?aniste, that the proclamation of the Count
dc> Chambord has ruined by far the best chance
the Monarchical party has bad since 1843, and
that the hopes of the elder branch must now
be set at rest for several years to come,
-In driving 3 London underground railway
tunnel we are told that In one part ol the line
the cuttings were made through a mass of
skulls and bones sixteen feet in thickness,
the remains ol an old burial ground. In
another place, a forgotten secret passage,
twenty ieet wide, was discovered, supposed to
date from the fourteenth century, and this
also had to be turned to good account.
-Koopmanschaap, the famous importer of
heathen Chinee, has been to Tuscaloosa, Ala.,
to look after the Interests ol about 350 China?
men who were taken there to work on a rail?
road and received no pay. He lound tbem

-A piece of "iron paper," a thousand of '
which were required to make a layer an inch
thick, was Bent from this country to the Inter- 1
national Exhibition at London, In 1851. But
English workmanship has now attained a far
mere remarkable result, in the production of
a ?heet of Iron so thia that it requires four <
thousand eight hundred such to iorm an inch
In thickness. It ls the thinnest sheet-Iron ?

length, by five and a half in width. It we'ghs
only twenty grams.
-George H. Miles, the Maryland poet and .
playwright, died on the 24th instant, at (
"Thornton," his country residence, about four
miles south of Emmettsburg, Frederic county, '
Maryland, ol Bright's disease ol the kidneys. 1
Mr. Miles is best known to the public for his 1
magnificent prize play of "Mohammed," which '
he wrote for Edwin Forrest, then in ihe zenith 1
of his hlstrlonio success. Mr. Forrest paid <
the writer $1000 for this work. The play l3 t
full ol rich imagery and gorgeous orientai (
scenes, but Its production on the stage was (
attended with too much cost to make it. pop- .
ular with managers.
-The disaster which hos overtaken an
island of the Phllllplne group, as reported by 1
cable dispatches recently, is a compr natively 1
familiar one in the history of that beautiful
but unfortunate portion of the Malay Archipel- j
ago.. The Islands^re all of volcanic formation; t
and abound with active as well as extinct era- <
ters, and lt ls in such regions that earth- ,
quakes occur with greatest frequency and in ,
the most violent forms. It is only eight years
since Macillo, ihe chief town of Luzon, and
capital of tbe group, was almost obliterated
by one of these natural convulsions, and a
year later there was a terrible earthquake in '
the island of Mindanao, which swept away vii- 3
loges and destroyed numbers of lives; at the '
same time some of the smaller Mauds disap- 1
peared entirely. . <
-Peabody Square, London, another bloch. ;
of model dwellings erected under the bequest :
of George Peabody, will be formally opened
on Angust?. The square contains two line
quadrangles of light airy-looking buildings,
the white and red brick-work" of which ls re?
lieved hythe clusters of trees. The rooms
are described as well lighted, well ventilated,
and thoroughly comfortable. Water pipes
run through the buildings, bath-rooms are
provided in abundance, and the staircases and
passages are lighted with gas. The two quad?
rangles afford accommodations for three hun?
dred and twenty tenants, who pay sixty-two"
cents a week for one room, one dollar for two
rooms, and one dollar and a quarter tor three,
rooms. At these rates, it is stated, all the
rooms la the buildings have been taken, the
applicants being twice as many as the premises
could accommodate. Every effort, lt is said,
was made to Insure that the tenants should
only belong to the deserving Industrious poor,
whom the trust ls charged to benefit.
-The marriage ol the Princess Louise with
the Marquis of Lorne was not, according to
late English gossip, by any means the love
match lt has been popularly supposed to be,
and the wedded pair are now far from happy
together. The story is that lie Princess in?
herits her mother's quick and imperious tem?
per, and the two women had such frequent
quarrels that the peace ol the royal domestic
circle was quite destroyed. Tbe marriage of
the Princess and her residence elsewhere
being the only resource in the emergency,
a certain number of young noblemen were se?
lected and Invited to Windsor Castle, and the
Princess required to choose a husband from
among them. She obeyed, and her choice fell
on the young Marquis, but there was no more
love between them than usually attends such
business-like arrangements. The result has
been that the Princess's temper ls as bad as
ever, only it is exercised on a new object. The
exclusion of tho Marquis from the royal circle,
and the consequent separation of bim from his
wife cn state occasions, ls said to be owing to
these conjugal differences, and not to any law
Of etiquette. It 1B even reported that not long
ago the Queen was sent lor, and went down to
Claremont, the residence of the young couple,
to prevent a complete rupture.
-A cargo of elephants sounds like a laney ol
Dean Swift or DeFoe, but this was what actu?
ally arrived at New York a day or two ago,
direct from Ceylon. There were eleven ol the
intelligent animals, and owing to the precau?
tions taken for their proper feeding and sta?
bling, only one died on the passage, and the
lemaining ten were hoisted upon tho New
York dock, ia tue best of health and spiriit,
a ad to tbe great delight of a large and entbu
.slastic but respectful audience. Ceylon was
left on the 20th of March, and the weather re?
mained favorable until passing the Cape of
Good Hope. Most of the elephants, however,
became sea-sick, and went through the agony
in the most orthodox fashion, recovering at
last like members o? the human family.
After passing the Cape a Beries ol terrific
gales were encountered, and the situation of
the animals was rendered more uncomfort?
able; but beyond giving vent to a fearful roar?
ing, they endured the ordeal with exemplary
fortitude. They used 26,000 gallons of water
on tho passage, and 125 bales of hay, averaging
275 pounds per day, whfah food was in ad?
dition lo two bushels of gramm and "paddy,*'
the last rolled up in the form ol little balls or
cakes, and fed to them frcm the hands ol
their Singhalese keepers. Those on board
would occasionally give them a sea-biscuit,
which was esteemed by the elephants a great
luxury. They seemed to comprehend and
mourn over the decease of their companion,
and in various ways gave token of that won?
derful intelligence BO long noticed as beiBg
possessed by this noble animal.*
A Matter ot* Easiness.
The Radical organ candidly declares that
the Municipal Election is a matter of busi?
ness-a matter of dollars and cents to, the
people. This is the strongest argument
which can be used against the Know-Noth?
ing Pillsbury and the whole Radical ticket.
Mayor Pillsbury hos been in office three
years, and bis wbole administration has
been marked by crass ignorance an4 a de?
liberate discrimination against the mercan-1
tile md laboring classes. The pets of the
Mayor, the Aldermen, and their kith and
kin, seize all the fat jobs, and give the work?
ingmen the fifty-cent-a-day jobs as a small
sized sop to Cerberus. The finances or the
city are more hopelessly mixed up than they
ever were. Enough money is drawn from
the pockets of the people to pay all claims,
yet the interest on the city debt is only paid
when the Manicipal Ring cannot stave off
any longer their inceneed creditors. There
is a talk of improving the city credit, but,
like all the Pillsbury promises, it ends in
smoke. "We have tried the Pillsbury ad?
ministration, and the city sinks deeper and
deeper in the mire. It is time that there
was a change. Two' years hence it will be
too late. Appealing to the record, we call
upon the business men and the laboring
men of Charleston to unite in voting down
the whole ticket of the unscrupulous Pills?
MAYOR PILLSBURY is a Know-Nothing in
Qnance as well as in politics. For three
years he has tried his hand at arranging the
city debt. It is time that a Mayor was
sleeted who has some ideas of his own, and
whose home is not in Massachusetts.

Now the population of the United States,
at a liberal estimate, is forty millions. Of
these, one-half - are males. Of the remain?

too young to need the article in question.
Deducting negro and poor white females,
who never use the article, there will be left
not above eight millions who do use the
article. Divide one hundred and twenty
one millions five hundred thousand by eight
millions, and it will be perceived that each
woman in the United States who ever used
the article uses fifteen and a fraction of the
article every year. And the article, we are
But what is the article? As we do not
use invisible Ink, we are unabie to say. It
may be hinted, though, that the article is
something in the nature of what carpenters
would call a strut. It may incline the wear?
er to strut, but it is not a strut. Nor is it,
properly speaking, a prop, a ring-post,
a trestle-work, though its operation is
analogous to these. In a barrel factory, it
might be called a hoop, but it is not a hoop.
Sailors who are familiar with main-stays
and back-stays might tell what manner of
article this article is. We dare not whisper
its mysterious name. Ten million dozen of
the article are imported annually, and each
year sees a considerable increase not only
of the imported, but of the home-made

The Bennettsville Railroad.
The President of the Wilmington, Char?
lotte and Rutherford Bailroad writes to Mr.
Hudson, of Bennettsville, to Bay that, if the
citizens of that place, will grade a road to
Laurinburg, and furnish cross-ties and
iron, his company will, no doubt, lease the
road at six per cent., and furnish their own
locomotives and cars. It is proposed that
the new road be a three foot gauge. Mr.
Hudson, in communicating this proposition
to the Marlboro' Times, says that, in his
opinion, the route to Society Hill is more
advantageous, but, if that road cannot be
buiH, the community should do all in their
power to meet the offer of the Wilmington,
Charlotte and Rutherford Railroad.
REMINISCENCES OP FIPTT YEARS. By Mark
Boyd. New York : D. Appleton <k Co. Price
Mr. Boyd is a Scotchman who has lived
for nearly half a century in London, and has
in that time moved in "the best society," of
which it is evident that, io his own opinion
at least, magna pars fuit. His reminis?
cences of the people he has met and known
form a curious olla-podrida of things wise
and unwise, amusing and stupid. His style
is slipshod aud inelegant; and many of his
anecdotes are so ScotckUy told as to be al?
most "caviare to the general." Bat here
and there one stumbles over somethicg that
repayB search; and, taken altogether, the
book is chatty and agreeable enough.
