meaning of those unrivalled pictures of Lon'

-The Dally News understand tbat pending
the arrangement of the misunderstanding re?
lative to the Alabama case, no further steps

told in the newspapers. He had lived in
Hartford, Connecticut, and having saved a
good deal of money, retired, bought a fine
- farm, stocked lt, and weat to live upon it like
a financial Diocletian. The directors of his
' bank were so pleased that (hey voted him
thanks and a money gratuity; whereupon he
went to their next meeting and calmly inform?
ed them that he had made his little pile by
speculating with the fonds of the bank, and
he also cautioned them lo keep a good look?
out for his successor, who might not be so BUC
cessfol as he had been. It is not probable
that the directors considered these remarks
to be either grateful or complimentary.
-"Consortium" ls the latest speculative
coinage of the New York Stock Exchange.
There was an advance In Chicago and North?
western common Btarea from 74| to 77$ on
Monday, and in the early hours of the day it
was reported that a "consortium'" had been
formed In the slock, with a capital of sixty
thousand shares, on the Eogiish "limited''
plan, and that the treasury of the "consorti?
um" waa already in possession of thirty-five
thousand shares, or a little more than one
half of the total amount of stock which the
"consortium" is limited to buy. The head?
quarters of the Northwestern "consortium"
are in William street, and lt is sail that Its
operations have been Interfered with to some
extent by the outside operations ol its mem?
bers, who have purchased freely of Northwest

run ap a little higher.

from being consumed and saved si

succor lay in extricating the wound

the bridge and o? the cars and seats, t
extrication was impossible, but all.'

The City ?nd tbe Road.
We have endeavored, we hope sue
ly, to demonstrate that it is indispens
the growth, and to the existence, of C
ton that the control of the South C
Railroad should not pass away from t
pie of the State. We have shown tl
danger,of losing that control can c
averted by causing a majority of the
to be BO held that it cannot be bought
large amounts, by afiy Railroad R
speculative clique. And we have sub
the reasons which lead us to the cone
that the corporation of Charleston ca
the city the needful safeguard and sei
more surely and expeditiously than it i
given by individual citizens.
The City Government is the represec
of the citizens in matters which affect
as a commntity. There would be no
ity in Charleston if it were left to groi
citizens to organize their own police. }
the streets be kept clean if every c
1 were required to act as bis own scave
and no penalty nearer than a possible
demie punished his neglect ? The inco
the city Is spent for the benefit of a
citizens, but what would the revenue (
city be if every citizen were allowed to d
for himself how much he should pay
the treasury? We do not assert tha
regulation of a railroad and the regal
of a Board of Health and a Fire Depart
stand upon precisely the same footing;
it is clear to us that, in any question w
concerns the whole city and every pers
it, corporate action, which ls united ac
mnst be preferred. Assuming that it be
pedient to expend a sum of money foi
advantage of all the citizens, the city
cause the burden to be divided amongst
citizens according to their means, wh
the procuring of the money be left to I
viduals,. it will, if obtained in suffit
amount, pres3 with unequal weight npoi
feront persons. The city can assess a ta
meet the interest upon money which it
borrow, but where the funds for a pc
object are collected from individuals, rc
must contribute more than their shar
compensate for the calculating delinque
of those who furnish little or nothing,
feel, therefore, that, if it be necessary..
' several tb0u3a.ua aaainonar shares of Sc
j Carolina Railroad stock shall beheld irre
vably in Charleston, those shares can bet
and more justly, be obtained by the cit:

That it is held to be within the provine
the City Government to subscribe to
capital stock of railroad companies is she

Memphis and Charleston, Nashville i
Chattanooga, and Bine Ridge Railroo
The subscription to the last named road n
be wholly lost unless the Railroad Commit
and the City Attorney take proceedings
once, nader the resolution adopted by Coi
eil, for the protection of the municipal
terests. From the other investments of I
city, no return, in the shape of additioi
business with the West, has been obtain
But the fault lies with the nature of the
vestment, not with the principle which die
ted it. There is all the diff?rence in I
world between patting money into a conce
at Nashville, or Memphis, or even at And>
son, and patting money into a road whi
has its terminas ia the city, and upon whi
we depend for our commercial health a
vigor. The practical business sense whi
would condemn the one investment woe
unhesitatingly approve of the other.
Charleston, we know, is poor, and b
a heavy debt An increase of debt is equi
aient to aa iacrease of taxation, and we a
taxed already heavily enough. It ma
however, be wise for the city to pond
whether it ls not better to enlarge taxati?
in order to avoid far heavier - losses
another form. Take away from Charlestc
her main railroad, and the most valuab
real estate in the city will soon becon
worthless. AB the aggregate value of tl
real and personal property decreases, tl
rate of taxation mast be advanced. Th
is what we have to look forward to, if v,
allow the South Carolina Railroad to s)i
through our fingers for fear of encounterin
an additional charge of forty or fifty thot
saud dollars a year. We hope, howevei
that an increase of debt and taxation ma
be avoided; although we are emphatically c
opinion that it would be cheaper to add
million to the city debt than to hazard th
loss of many millions by permitting th
South Carolina Railroad to be worked ad
versely to the city. Charleston has valnabl
assets which might be made use of in th
present emergency. A transfer of securit;
would not Injure persons who may hav
claims upon the railroad stocks owned b;
the city. And it cannot be deniet
that five or ten thousand shares of Soutl
Carolina Railroad stock would be infialteli
more advantageous to Charleston than i
like number of shares in a railroad companj
ia the West. The South Carolina Railroad
stock would offer equal prospects of benefil
as a bare investment, and it would, in ad?
dition, make the commercial position o
Charleston absolutely impregnable.
These subjects demand the serious consid?
eration of the City Council Ia that bodj
we have represeutatives of every class and
interest. We say to them that this matter
of the South Carolina Railroad is as
urgent as any other business which can
come before them, and we earnestly invite
them to give it their immediate attention.

The Blue Ridge Swindle.
The Colombia Union attempts to gloss
over tbe Blue Ridge swindle by asseverating
that the Democratic press always counted
the four million dollars of Blue Ridge bonds,
endorsed by the State, as a part of the pub?
lic debt. What IT they did? The event:
shows that the Democratic press were right,
and that the Radical politicians, from Slr.
Chamberlain down, were wrong. Bat in no
event contd the State be called on to pay the
bonds until they fell due, even if their issne
was legal, and they were lawfully used. The
Radicals, however, step in and pay $1,800,
000 in bills receivable to release the State
from a contingent liability of fonr millions,
at a time when the public interest is unpaid
and State bonds are selling at thirty cents on
I the dollar. Not content with buying np the
Blue Ridge bonds at Ave times their value,
the Legislature have released the mortgage
upon the Bine Ridge Road, which mortgage
was the State's only security. They furnish
the means of paying off the debts of the
road, and turn it over, free of all encum?
brance, to a Ring of unscrupulous specula?
This Blue Ridge bill was passed by the
votes of the Radical members, and they are
responsible for the swindle. The wriggling
of Hie Union will not help them.

Thackeray-Thc "Crown Edition.
Everybody, of course, has read Thackeray,
but nobody until now has had an opportunity
of enjoying the works of the great novelist as
they ought to be enjoyed. The "Crown
Edition"-ot which we have, in The Newcomes,
the Initial volumes-ia a literary luxury which
will be appreciated by every lover of Thacke?
ray. Printed In fine large type, on tinted
paper, the text is illustrated profusely by
Doyle, In a style far superior to anything of
the kind that has before been attempted la a
popular edition. Eleven volumes, we believe,
will complete the series, which is decidedly
English in Us drees, though lt bears the im?
print of Lipplncott, of Philadelphia.
The Newcomes form volumes 1 and 2. which
are handsomely bound in one, price $3 25.
They may also be :had separately at $2 each.
The "Crown Edition" !s for sale at Fogartie's

A Naturalization Recoid.
The bill which has been introduced in Con?
gress for a record of naturalization in the
Slate Department at Washington provides
that the department shall keep a book in
which all declarations of intention to become
citizens and actual naturalizations shall he
systematically entered and kept for reference,
and that the process of naturalization eha'l In
no case be complete until the entries have
been made. All courts are required to for?
ward tbe naturalization papers they issue to
the S:ato Department for record, and the de?
partment Is lo give certified copies ot natural?
ization certificates to person? who may have
lost them, and to publieh every year a Hst of
all the naturalizations granted. The alleged
necessity of this measure arises from the fre?
quent loss of cet t?fica tes of naturalization and
the imperfect manner in which the records of
courts authorized to grant such certificates
are kept,"ana ?rom the Ooo is of fraudulent
naturalization papers which are issued in some
ol the large cities Just before Important elec?
