-A New York letter says: "A new and

men. These intend giving several large re?
ceptions during the autumn and winter, io
vitlng only pretty women, for so the laws of
the club especially direct and specify. Mar?
ried men are only allowed to "look on" in this

invitations to these may ieel doubly assured
of ber appearance: therefore fatvit? will not

?-& letter from Paris gives what purports to
?e tha line o? defence which General Rossel,
ex-communist minister of war, proposes to

plea is acuriouB one. It will be that be Join?
ed the Commune merely to endeavor to drill
the National Guard of Paris into such a condi?
tion of efficiency as to be able to drive the ,
Prussians oat ot' St. Denis. In this enterprise

promised to exert himself to save his life.
-The Pope'sjjrunclo, says the Paris Gaulois,
had an interview with M. Thiers recently.
Monsignor Chigt spoke of the Intention of the
Pope to quit-Rome and go and seek the hospi?
tality of Malta or Spain. M. Thiers showed
himself decidedly opposed to such a step.
"There is," he said to the Nuncio,'-a French
proverb which Bays that he who quits bis place
loseB it. The Pope in quitting Rome compro?
mises the future of the Holy See. His pres?
ence at Rome ls, at least, an eloquent protes?
tation, against what passes there. I have no
counsel to give his Holiness; but were I In his
place I would not badge; I would wait."
-The parchase pt the Engl'sh telegraphs by
the government has been a good speculation
lor the nation. The total amount of purchase
money was seven and a half million pounds
sterling. The receipts so lar amount to ten
per cent, on the Investment, the expenses to
only Ove and a half per cent. The profit of
four aDd a half per cent, is very satisfactory,
considering the newness of the enterprise, and
it is announced as being constantly on the in?
crease. It is proposed at the earliest possible
time to make the uniform price ot messages to
all pans ol the United Kingdom sixpence, and
thus more effectually popularize the system.
The present rateB, however, are very mach

the beef, when unloaded, found to be as iresh
and sweet as on the day of Its shipment. This
is said to be the first consignment of tbe kind
that has ever reached Philadelphia from Texas;

trade, which will greatly reduce the cost of

Who are Responsible ?
A number of the victims of the Westfield
disaster have commenced legal proceedings
against the Staten Island Ferry Company,
and will, doubtless, recover heavy damageB.
This may compensate the survivors, in some
measure, for the personal injuries they sus?
tained ; but no money-verdict can restore to
life the unfortunates who, through the crim?
inal negligence of the Company, were hur?
ried, without-wanaipg, into^ eternity. Nor
do we believe that any pecuniary loss which
the Company may suffer will serve to pre?
vent that carelessness and parsimony which
cause, every year, so many so-called acci?
dents. We want a striking example-one
which will force the officers of public compa?
nies, if they value their necks, to put capa?
ble men in charge of their machinery and
rolling stock', and. to neglect no precaution
against disaster which experienpe may sug?
gest The officers of the Staten island Ferry
Company, no more guilty than scores of
presidents and superintendents, who, under
similar circumstances, bare gone soot-free,
may think themselves harshly treated in be?
ing made, as it were, a sacrifice to the just
indignation ol Ibo public. But the in.au.
! nity which a lax administration of justice
has given to others cannot be held to pnt
them beyond the reach of the law, and* for
the common good and general safety, we
trust that they will be severely, although not
vindictively, punished. The ase must be
laid at the root of the tree. It is useless to
, send an ignorant? engineer to Sing Sing,
I when the officers who gave him tbe power,
apd the opportunity, to slaughter a bost of
j men, women and children, go unwbipped of
A Railroad for Bennettrvllle.
One or the few counties in Sooth Carolina
still unblessed by railroad transit, ?B Marl?
boro'; and a Bore point it is to her enterpri?
sing citizens. The subject, as may be sup
posed, bas engaged the. attention of the
good people of Bennettsville not a little.
They obtained a charter for a road to Society
Hill, there UT connect with the Cberaw aod
Darlington Railroad, bot what with General
Sherman, the Thirteenth amendment, poor
crops and high taxes, reconstruction has not
as yet progressed far enough to briog the
people of that ancient borough fairly np to
There is, however, et ill another reason for
01B delay; arising not from poverty, bnt
rather from a wealth of choice. There are
three routes proposed to the people of Ben
nettBville, by means of which they are prom?
ised conthiuDicatibn with" the .'oater world.
One of these, to Marion Courthouse, bas bat
little to recommend it, as it is Dearly forty
miles in length, and would only open the
way to North Carolina.
The second route bas more advocate?. It
is proposed to build a roa"d from Bennetts?
ville due' north to Laurinnurg, a station on
the Wilmington, Charlotte aod Rutherford
Railroad. The distance is only about twenty
miles, over a fine country-thjough which a
road could be built at comparatively small
cose The objection is, again, that Buch a
road would force all the trade of Marlboro'
to Wilmington; wbile tbe merchants, plant?
ers and other citizens of that county have
always (with very few exceptions) done their
entire business with Charleston houses.
It is clear, therefore, that Society Hill is by
far the best choice. It is the nearest point
to a railroad. It puts tbe people ic comma-j
nication with their friends and correspond?
ents, and with their market, by the most di?
rect route. They already have the charter,
aod there is a bridge over the Peedee River, <
whieb, we understand, is admirably adapted
for a railroad, requiring but a very small
outlay for such a modification.
All these points are discussed by Major D.
B- Townsend, the President of the Cberaw
and Darlington Railroad, in a letter ad?
dressed to the Marlboro' Times. Major
Townsend estimates the cost of grading the
line from Bennettsville to Society Hill at
$50,000, and tbe rolling stock of the Cberaw
and Darlington Railroad might serve both
roads. Taking the whole cost at $100,000,
of which one-half could be raised apon a
first mortgage, a subscription of S50.000
will cause tbe line to be speedily built Bat
this subscription must come from the people
of Marlboro'; neither the Wilmington, Char?
lotte and Rutherford Railroad) cor the Cbe?
raw. and Darlington Railroad can aid the
enterprise materially. In conclusion, Major
Townsend expresses the opinion that a pro?
per preliminary step would probably be to
call a public meeting at Sen netts ville in Sep?
tember or early in October, when represent?
atives from the roads on either side might
be invited to attend. Major Townsend is a
practical railroad man, familiar with tbe
waaia and the resources of the County of
Marlboro', and bis strong recommendation of
tbe Society Hdl route cannot fail to bave
great weight with the people.
Charleston has no small interest at stake
in this, matter. If the merchants of Wil?
mington should build the road from Laarin
barg to' Bennettsville they would draw the
trade of Marlboro' more surely than Wil?
mington now controls the trade of Sumter
and Marion, which towns have some choice,
while Bennettsville would have no choice
We would, therefore, direct the attention
of our merchants and railroad men to this
little coroer of South Carolina asking for
aid aad direction. The trade of that section
is very considerable, as is well known to our
jobbers, and still better to our factors and
commission merchants. Charleston cannot
aflord to Bend this trade to Wilmington.
The Torr at the North.
The New York Times offers some comment
on the change which a few years have wrought
In one of the popular means of recreation at
the North. Ol the many thousands who have
witnessed the recent race meetings at Sara?
toga, Jerome Park and Monmouth Park, few,
it says, have probably given a thought to the
remarkable rise of the sport which is now so
popular. Little more than ten years ago there
was in that part of the country no such thing
as a track devoted exclusively to racing. That
pastime was, indeed, almost unknown,
known only to be despised. Trotting matches
were then the passion of the Hour, and a con?
test between the famous trotters often drew
immense crowds to Union or Fashion Course,
To-day all that is changed. The trotting track
is deserted, and the fickle crowdB that were
wont to encourage the historic struggles of |
Patchen and Flora Temple now hang with
even greater zest on the flying steps of Long?
fellow and Kingfisher. Trotting, indeed, as :
spectacle, may be said to have fallen into com?
parative disrepute, and fashion and popularity
alike have declared In favor of its long-ne?
The Taxing Power.
There ls scarcely anything in this world
which may not be subjected to a tax through
the exigencies of an Insolvent government.
One of the latest financial schemes io Pariais
a tax of .five francs upon each and every cat,
and of one franc upon each bird kept in a cage.

National Fall li and National Bonds,
The New York Journal o f Commerce, in the
course ol a review of the national finances,
reaches the sound conclusion that "the truth
"is that % five per cent., and probably a four
"and a half percent., bond could easily be ne?
gotiated at par if our government had not j
"undertaken, by packing the Supreme Court,
"to enforce the doctrine that a contract to pay
"money may be lawfully settled, if an act of
"Congress so order, by the tender of another
"contract or a paper promise. That legaliza
"tlon of a shana bas damaged American credit
"more than all else besides, and there never
"will be a permanent recovery and re-eBtab
"llsbmentof that credit until this ls revised, or
"an express stipulation is incorporated In the
"fundamental law of the land lorbidding any
"such interpretation of a contract.*'
A Sensation for "Society.*"
A book ls in preparation in England-the
first part of which has been published-where?
in will be git*eu a brief account of the earlier
emigrants to this country-their social posi?
tion at home, and whether that "home" was a
castle, a thatched shed, or, as not unfrequent
'ly happened, a penitentiary. Tills plan has
been devised by a curious Englishman, who
bas set about preparing for publication these
brief genealogical sketches. The part already
published contains some account of the lof
elgners-English-*who came to this country
between the years 1600 and 1700. The writer
of the book proposes also to consider the con?
vict and apprentice element which was ban?
ished to these shores, or was sent here under
bonds, and of whose descendants many now
furnish the material for the most interesting
bits of "society news."

^MEDICAL MISTAKER. -IT TOOK
the faculty about a thousand years to discover
that the best way to cure disease was not to rend
er tbe patient too weak to contend with lt. With?
in the last twenty years, however, the whole,
fystem cf medical practice bas been changed
for the better. In diseases or complaints caused
by excessive heat, for instance, the doctors no
longer recommend the reduction of the invalid's
btrength by prostrating medicines. The vast sue
cess which Kas attended the use ol HOSTETTER'S
STOMACH BITTERS as a remedy lor debility bas
given even the most prejudiced members or the
old Behool an insight icto the only trne and ra?
tional theory or cure, cambar ides, calomel, and
overpowering doses or opium are now among the
obsolete nostrums of another age. The lancet,
once as much the legitimate weapon of the physi?
cian as the sword li ol the soldier, ls seldom
drawn from Its case. The principle or life ls no
longer drained from thelvelns by the quart, and
ter-gruel lor the strengthless invalid has
ceased to ba considered an appropriate diet.
Vigor la the motto or the rational members or the
profession, and they understand at last the value
or a sterling vegetable tonic. So also with the
people at large; and without consulting medical
men at all, they have adopted the Bitters as a
household remedy, thereby economizing both cash
and health. ?
Note the ract that HOSTETTER'S STOMACH
BITTERS Is sold In bottles only-never In bulk
and that the abortions springing up in various
parts or the country, and sometimes offered as
substitutes for tbe great national sped Bc, are all
