was an unusual commotion, with volcanic

? -The Great Western Telegraph Company

the manufacture of a new ocean cable. The
work is to be done In England and the project

equal to $6,760,000, and it proposes to lay a
cable from England to New York, by way of |
Bermuda, with a branch line to St. Thomas,
acd a subsequent extension to Brazil. Thc
estimated cost of making and laying the cable
ls equivalent to the amount ol the capital,
and, as a practical guarantee, the directors
nave stipulated that the contractors shall take
one-third ol the whole number of shares.
Agreements have also been made with the
Great Northern Telegraph Company to secure
the irans-Ailantlc traffic of Denmark, Norway,
Sweden, Russia, China and Japan; and when
the Great Northern Company estabilshi** its

of a duplicate route between England and

-A writer ia the last Appletons' Journal
gives a short but interesting account of thc
great American Sahara, the desert region
lying midway between the Mississippi Uiver
and the Pacific Ocean. Over this treeless
waste oo birds fly; on lt no life Is found but the
gray brittle sage brush ano the narrow belt ol
green that skirts the margins of the unfre
qneot streams? And yet, arid, sbrubless, des?
olate as this vast tract-twelve limes the area
of New England-is by nature, there is but
little doubt bat that, by proper irrigation and
tree planting, lt can be made productive. The
writer io tbe Journal advocates artesian wells
like those that have been so successfully sunk
by the French lo Algeria. We see, by the San
Diego Union, that these wells are likely to be
.ooo tested practically. A cumber ol capital- J
lats seriously entertain the idea of reclaiming j
at least a portion of the Colorado Desert by
this meaos. The project to reader the south
era and eastern borders of this desert arable ls
no oew ooe. Ia 1856. and again io 1859, a
proposal to toro the Colorado River upon it
waa favorably reported upon ia the United
States Congress. The plan now proposed by
tbe gentlemen who entertain the idea of sink?
ing wells, is to go before Congress and ask a

-The United States Supreme Court bas
given a decision which is Intended to define
the American doctrine as to the relations of j
Cnurch and State. .The case before the court I
was that of a Presbyterian Church io Louis- \
ville which bad become divided through old
troubles relatlog to slavery aud the civil war.
After various proceedings before the estab?
lished tribunals of the church -the Presby?
tery, the Synod and the General Assembly- |
the dispute waa taken Into the courts; first
Into the State Courts of Kentucky, an tl after
ward to the United States Circuit Court; the
decisions la the Staid Courts belog nil la favor
of ooe party, and io the United States Court
of the other. Fi u al ly, the case was brought
belora the Supreme Court ot the Uaited
States, which decided, substautlally, that no
coon has power to interfere with the action
ol the General Assembly, which ls the su?
premo Judicatory o? the Presbyteriaa Church.
Its decisions, whether right or wroog, must
be accepted as final la all church matters, and
civil tribunals have oot the authority evea to
Inquire whether, under the constitution of
the church, the Assembly has j.irlsdictioa
over cases brought before lt, or whether its
action ia lo conform i ty to the rules and pre?
cedents of the church. From this lt would
appear that lo aoy church the declsioa ol the
ecclesiastical judicatory which ls recognized
.a ol the highest authority, caooot be over?
ruled by aoy civil court.
--Laoor strikes are the order of the day on
both aides of the Atlantic. In this country
New York city IB the centre of the agitation,
which ls mainly to enforce the elght-hour rule,
the movement io favor of which has made
great progress this spring. Over two thous
! and carpenters and Joiners are now on a strike
in New York. They demand three dollars
and fifty cents for eight hours' work. It seems
that the strlk? has been contemplated by the
I Carpenters and Joiners' Union for a lona time,
and the several societies have been hur-band
intr their resources and preparing tor ir. The
strike thus far has been peaceable but earn
e*r. The bricklayers will strike next Monday,
(unless allowed four dollars per day
I for eight hours' work. The painters'
sinke in that city this spring for eight hours
and no reduction was successful, and from
present indication?, wo think that the carpen?
ters and bricklayers of New York will hereal
ter work but eight hours a day. These three
trades are at the base of the building Interest,
and their regulation of the time for "striking"
evinces a carefully prepared plan. They were
aware that at the present season capital in
this branch ls screwed up with contracts and
an ai tack would leave it no resource, but sur?
render. It cannot be denied that the eight
hour law, although obtaining legally only on
government work?, has had considerable
effect in paving the way lor the present
spread of the system to private enterprises.
.The strikes and united trade movements this
spring seem to be more formidable and unani?
mous than they have been at any previous
period; and if the movement spreads, as may
be expected, we shall see, after a season,
what will be the effect of this forced diminu?
tion of the labor product of the trades, in re
gard to which there is now great difference of J
The First Liberal Victory.
Tho recent re-election of United States
I Senator Ferry by the Connecticut Legisla?
ture was a signal victory for 4he friends of |
the Liberal movement The Grant managers
bad resolved that Ferry, who was too inde?
pendent to suit their purposes, must be
kicked out, and one Hawley putin his place.
But the Liberal Republicans in the Legisla?
ture were disinclined to throw Ferry over?
board, and, joining with the Democrats, suc?
ceeded in re-electing that Senator, in this
case there was no compromise of principle
on either side. Senator Ferry is a Liberal
Republican, and as such tbe Democrats in
the Legislature supported him. He had
given them no special pledges. There was
no bargain in the case. They take him for
what be is, preferring his election to that of |
an avowed partisan of Grant's misgovern?
ment. The result which hus thus been ac
j complished not only returns to the Senate an
able, independent and useful member, but it
defeats and rebukes the Grant Administra?
tion where its managers have regarded their
success as certain. More than this, it points
most distinctively and impressively the way
by which Liberal* Republicans and Demo?
crats, united, eau win the Presidential con?
test and reform the Government
OUR correspondent Paysan shows what

THE NEWSPAPER PRESS OP CHARLESTON, 8.
C. A Chronological and Biographical His?
tory, embracing a period ol one hundred
and forty years. By William L. Klug.
Charleston, S. C. : Edward Perry. 1872.
We have received from the author a copy of |
this interesting volume, the contents ol which
were fully described la these columns some
time since. Mr. King, with a zeal and indus?
try which do him credit, has brought to light a
variety of striking facts connected with the rise
and progress ot the Cnarleston press. To
these are added many pieces of local informa?
tion which, without Mr. King's assistance,
might have passed into oblivion. A full ac?
count is given of the different newspapers
which had their day and died; and there are
sketches ot the eminent men who, at different
limes, have been connected with the local
press. The newspapers cow published ia
Charleston are noticed, and ia conclusion the
author makes aa earnest appeal for the con
tinuance of a spirit of kindness and good
fellowship among the conductors o? the press.
Mr. King has succeeded in giving the public a
valuable little work, the baudsome typograph?
ical appearance ol which is the evident result
ol the directing hand of a skilful pi act leal
CRIF. A story of Australian Life. By B. L.
Farjeoo. Author ol Joshua Marvel. Blade
o'Grass, Ac. New York: Harper A Bro?.
1872. Charleston: Fogariles, King street.
The successor to Dickens, as fir. Far
jeon ls called, chooses his subjects in the
lowest walks of Ufa, but lt ls not for the
purpose of exciting laughter, at the queer?
ness ot the bed-fellows with whom pov?
erty makes them acquainted, nor for cari?
caturing the grotesqueness of their ways.
In all that he writes he suggests for the
consideration of the public the terrible so?
cial problems ot the century. The wretched
boy who is ignorant of the moral law and
steals a foal of bread to appease his raging
hunger-ls he to blame, or that orderoi things
which denies bim work and training ? The
vagrant who finds that a petty tbelt will send
him to a jail where for some weeks, at least,
he has better food, clothing and sheller than
he can possibly get in the streets-is he to
blame if he longs for* prison and thinks liberty
a curse t The wretched girl whose one false
Btep brands her forever in the eye ot the sister?
hood-is she alone to blame if she falls lower
and lower, and rests at last on the breast of
the placid river ? These and olher phases of
lite are kept before the reader; they are ex?
plained, not as la a homily but by example.
Grit, it need hardly be said, is a sad story, and
It is vividly interesting. In the plot there is
nothing especially striking; but the characters
are powerfully drawn, and there is in the story
a true pathos, which Dickens never reached.
They who read Grif and its companion works
may lay the volume down with a melancholy
sense of the extent ot th? cankering sore at j
the root of this boasted civilization of ours;
and they may determine to read ? no more
books which ore not printed iu rose color
and do not "end happily;" but they will have
gained something io the thoughts forced upon
them, and will have made the acquaintance ol
one who, in the opinion of many, is the
strongest and most earnest novelist ol the day.
