On the 9lh of April, a great natioual fair was
opened in the sacred City of Kioto, and lor the
space of fifty days foreigners were to have I
free permission to visit the city, go where they
pleased in it without restraint, and to exhibit
their goods. This is regarded by foreign resi?
dents of Japan as an important step toward
the final and complete abandonment of the
old policy of exclusiveness which has so long
been characteristic ot that country.
-The Norfolk Virginian of May 12 contains
a letter from the Hon. John Goode, a member I
-ot' me~ national rjeuiuuitttic committee, coi-1
recting the statement of the New York Her
aid's letter, that he was urging extreme Dem- j
coralie views. Mr. Goode says that as at pres-1
ent advised, he la prepared to support the
nomination of the Liberal Republicans, and
be thinks it would be unwise for the Baltimore
Convention to make nominations. James
barron Hope, the editor, In commenting on
Mr. Goode's letter, says it prefers "Captain
Pen to Captain Sword."
-The English Anti-Tobacco Society desir?
ing practical evidence of the evil effects of to
bocco, took Into their service Professor New
man. This gentleman had never used tobac
co in any form, and the agreement was that I
be should take a good smoke, get sick, and
then describe his horrible sensations in a
course of lectures. In fulfilment of this, the
professor smoked a pipe lor half an hour, but,
singular enough, instead of getting sick,
awoke to the fact that he had discovered al
new source of pleasure, and, far from being j
utterly disgusted, has continued to smoke j
ever since, greatly to the discouragement of I
the society. i
-New York is foll of trouble. There were
twenty new cases ot small-pox ID that city-a
large Increase-on Saturday, and seven deaths;
the spotted fever Is on the increase; the
croton water is impure, leading to fears o? a
visit from the cholera; and the street contrac
tor, one Brown, allows "disgusting heaps ot
filth" to accumulate in the thoroughfares and
spread their foul odors broadcast. Desperate
diseases require desperate remedies, and the
Bulletin saggests, as the only effectual cure
for the inefficiency which is running the eily,
the radical measure of hanging two or three
street-cleaning commissioners, and shooting
the contractor. j

cite considerable apprehension on the part of
the Democratic managers, and there is much

Manhattan Cub, Fifth avenue, and Hie New

-At Boston recently the vane on the steeple
of the East Cambridge Methodist Church, re-1
quit.ag repairs, a man named Dooris volun?
teered to ascend and throw it down. He
climbed up by means ot a small ladder, and
having accomplished his object, proceeded to
descend. After coming down part of the way I
he found himself on a tower twenty-five feet I
above the root of the church, his ladder im-1
movably fixed, and himself quite unable to
move either upwards or downwards. After I
remaining some hours, he was at length res
cued from his perilous position by the chief ol
the fire department sounding an alarm and
bringing a hook and ladder company to the I
spot, which soon relieved bim. j
-We have heard o? a great many amphlbi-1
ons things, from the hippo po tam us to the ex-1
tlnct animals of the earliest ages. We have
read of balloons calculated to carry detacha?
ble boats, so as to save their passengers if, by
any chance, they should alight in the ocean; I
and wo have seen a kind of broad, boxed lu I
wheel, which a sanguine Inventor claimed
would cany passengers inside, by a curious
self-adjusiiug arrangement, either over land J
or water. Mr. Burns, o? Wisconsin, now I
brings before the public the most novel scheme
for combining land and water transportation J
(tut has yet come under our notice, This is j
nothing let?8 than a railroad from the Atlantic
to Lake Ene, with a gauge of thirty
feet. The mol ive power to be used on
it being a wonderful un ch i ne, a kind of am?
phibious locomotive, which will navigate ihe
water as well aa traverse the laud. Its speed
on the former ls expected to be twenty-five
ro'Ies, and on the latter one hundred and
twenty-five miles per hour. What we are
compelled to call, for want of a belter phrase
[ under ihese novel circumstances, the mode of
I Its taking to the water is as follows: The road?
way will run out for some dksinuce into Lake
Erie, and when this locomotive arrives at Hie
end of this wharf, presto! like a scene in a
pantomime, it changes its machinery slightly,
becomes a steamboat, slides gracefully Into the
water, and with Its train of cars, like a duck
with its attendant ducklings, it glides on its
-The directors of the Paris Jardin des
Acclimation are busily engaged in replenish,
lng their menageries, the beasts whereof, and
the birds also, were enshrined in the stom?
achs of patriotic Parisians during the siege.
The prices then paid for a leopard steak or a
quarter of a llama are said to have been ex?
travagantly high, but what mattered that so
long as the terrible Germans were kept out of
the sacred city ? But the animals went to the
shambles; the Parisians ate them; and, alter
all, the city succumbed. So now the lions and
tigers, the elephants and camels, have again
to be gathered together wherever they can be
purchased. The restocking proceeds slowly.
The English menageries have been searched
In the hope of" finding suitable animals, and
wherever a number of American bisons or a
pair or elephants, or a cageful of Hons can be
bought at a reasonable figure, they are secured.
The collection at the Jardin, therefore, thanks
to such energetic measures, though it will be
many years before lt attains* its former mag?
nificent proportions, beelns, nevertheless,
even now to look respectable.
The Enterprise Railroad Company.
The splenetic remarks in which some of
the members of the City Council indulged
on Tuesday night cannot receive the appro?
val of those citizens who expect tho Alder?
men of Charleston to discuss malters of
gravo interest with discretion, and to act
upon them with impartiality. Admitting
that there is no nlterior motive, and that the
acrid criticisms upon tho Enterptlse Rail?
road Company have no other object than
the vindication of the corporate rights of the J
city, it is none the less evident that the ma?
jority of the City Council have taken a
course which exposes thom to serious mis?
construction, if to nothing worse.
The Enterprise Railroad Company, under
their charter, claim that they have authority
io lay their tracks through the streets of the
city without the consent or approval of the
City Council; but the City Council deny that
the Legislature can grant this authority,
and when work on the road began the Chief
of Police was instructed to give notice that
he must arrest any persons who might be
found breaking the earth or obstructing the
streets for the purpose of laying the tracks.
The work was suspended, and the company
ol i tai ned an injunction from Judge Graham
restraining the City Council from any further
interference with them. This enabled the
Company to resume operations. In the
meanwhile the Mayor had consulted with
the City Attorney and- the City Recorder,
both of whom gave the opinion that the city
could not prevent the building of the road. I
it WM Uetcnutuod, However, lo employ
counsel, and at the meeting beldon Tuesday
night the City Council engaged the services
Of two lawyers, with a fee of one thousand
dollars each, who should test the question in
the courts. The counsel BO engaged frankly
said that the case was full of doubt, and we
know that connsel ef high rank agree in the
opinion given by Mr. Corbin and Judge
Pringle; but the majority of the Council wore
not in the humor to stick at trifles, and the
motion for the engagement of counsel pre
We do not undertake to decide whether
the General Assembly has, or has not, tho
authority to confer upon a corporation the
power to tear up the streets and lay tracks
without regard to municipal regulations; bat j
we do believe that the public interest is best
served by remitting these matters, under J
proper restrictions, to the decision of the
people of the city or town in which the work
is to be done, and we do not suppose that
there wonld have been any objection ill
the City Council had quietly, through its
own officer, obtained a settlement of the
question. This is not done. The City
Council, with the adverse decisions of two
experienced lawyers before them, appropri-1
ate two thousand dollars for counsel fees;
although in the same meeting an alderman
notifies the Council that some of the prop?
erty of the city has been seized by a creditor
whose just debt the city refuses to pay. The
same alderman was confident that be would
be able to prevent the creditor from paying
himself. There is not money to pay that
claim, but a sum sufficient, very nearly, to
liquidate the claim in full is to be thrown
away in a suit in which success would be j
more disastrous than defeat Nor do we
think that the Council bad any right to ap-1
propri?t? this two thousand dollars for the
payment of eminent counsel. It is just one
of those Sotanees in which an injunction J
might save the city a considerable* sum of
Unfortunately the animus of the majority
of the Council was made evident by their
conduct in regard to the license fee proposer*
to be levied upon the City Railways. The I
fee suggested was one hundred dollars for
each car, but an amendment was at once
offered to make the fee five hundred dollars
for each freight car-that is, for each of the
cars with which the bulk of the work of the
Enterprise Railroad is to be done. The
Council could not materially inereose the
fee upon passenger cars, because by so do?
ing they would injure the present monopoly,
which has passenger cars only. Thqy
therefore confined the proposition to freight
cars, with the hope of taxing out of exist?
ence what they could not kill in the courts.
The new license law, upon the request of the
President or the City Railway Company, was
allowed to lie over, and no vote was had ;
but, as we have pointed out, tho whole drift j
of the proceedings shows that certain mem?
bers of the City Council are more intent
upon crushing the Enterprise Railroad than
upon consulting the public good. That j
railroad, or some similar work, is nec?
essary for the proper conducting of the
growing commerce of the city. And the
City Council, in opposing the building of the
road for personal reasons, are standing in
the way or the development of the trade or
Ready for Action.
Mr. Greeley has uoted wisely in retiriog
absolutely from the editorship of the New
York Tribune (luring the Presidential can?
vass. As Ung as Mr. Greeley retulned his
position it was wis not practicable for the
great newspaper which he founded, to do its
full work in the campaign; and his oppo?
nents were free in expressing their joy that
the guns of the Tribune were silenced by its
editor's nomination at Cincinnati. The
sound sense or Honest Horace has upset the
kind calculations of his enemies, anrl we
may expect the Tribune to pitch into the
Grant clique with all the vim which, in past
campaigns, bas made it so doughty a cham?
pion of its candidates and party. There is
no fear now tnat Its words will be twisted to
Mr. Greeley's disadvantage. The Tribune
is ready for the fray.
