-Pera Hyacinthe is about to start a paper

-At . meeting of the building committee
or 8t. Paul's Reformed Church, Titusvllle, Pa.,
It was resolved to ask of King William one of
the French oannon taken by him in the late
war, to be cast as a bell for the new edifice.
The, following letter from Charles H. Meyer,
the German consul at Philadelphia, tells the
result: "I am happy to state to yon that his
Majesty the Emperor William, in reply to the
petition Of St. Paul's Reformed Church, at
Titusvllle, bsa presented one of the captured
French cannon to them, weighing about two
thousand pounds. Yon will please communi?

?-A; Washington telegram says: "Borne
sensation bu been created here by the an.
nounoement of the Chicago Tribune that lt
Intends for the roture to adhere to what ls still
termed the Liberal Republican party. The
Chicago Tribune ls the moat powerful and In?
fluential Journal of the Northwest, and Its con?
tinued adherence to the principles ol the Cin?
cinnati platform, In the face of the decisive
majorities'ra all the Western States for Gene?
ral Grant, has caused considerable surprise
amongst the Western politicians. ThlB action
on the part of the far-seeing men who control
the Tribune la taken as a cheering indication
that the principles laid down at Cincinnati
and reaffirmed at Baltimore are gaining foroe
with the people as time rolls on, and that
good fruit ls yet to be borne of them. Thia
view Is still farther strengthened by the news
fr?nt New York that tbe Tribune of the East
Will stin be ranged under the same banner
with the Tribuns of the West. That Mr.
Whitelaw Beid ls able to control the large
amount required to purchase fifty shares of
the Tribune at the large advance ol twelve
thousand dollars per share, cannot be regard?
ed as' a symptom that the advocacy of "Libe?
ral" doctrines In the Rast does not pay."
-A recent telegram In the NBWB briefly men?
tioned that a JnnoUon of the headings from
the central shalt of the Hoosao Tunnel and
from the east end had been effected, and that
workmen had passed through irom one sec?
tion to the other. This ls the moat important
event so far In the history of that great work.
Two blasts of nitro-glycerine, each from four?
teen holes, whloh required eighty-four feet in
length of the explosive, weighing abouty six?
ty-three pounds- the largest quantity ev<r be?
fore used at one time in the tunnel-made
breaches through whloh the waterrun,and
the men of the two gangs conversed. Lamps
held at the opening were immediately extin?
guished, se strong was the draft from the end
toward the shalt. The last blast made a hole
about a foot In diameter between the
two sections. This was speedily enlarged
by hand-power, and a small boy was let
down from the central shaft Into the east
end, amid tbe abouts and cheers ol both
ganga, Another person o? larger size followed,
and then the east end reciprocated by sending
np two of the men of its gang, who proceeded
to the shaft, and where the first to reach the
top of the monntaln from the east end without
ascending its slope. Although the engineers
have not yet had an opportunity to verify their
calculations by the result, lt ls certain that the
error ls scarcely more than a foot either In
grade or In line, and lt may prove to be very
much less. Another fact, which is likely to
have an Important bearing on the matter or
ventilation, after the tunnel ls finished, ls that
the draft from the eastern end into the central
shalt tunnel ls so strong that it can only be
likened to a very powerful wind. Work may
r.ow be begun on the west heading of the cen?
tral Phaft BO that on October 18, 1873, If all
goes well, there win be an opening through
the Hoosao mountain from east to west, nearly
five miles In length. Not quite half a mlle west
of the central shalt remains lo be pierced.
3JX*4 New York telegram, describing th?
burning of Barnum's Circus and Menagerie In
Fourteenth street, on Christmas Eve, Bays:
The fire was first discovered at 4.16, bursting
through the roof of the circus, Immediately
over where the giraffes were kept, and Imme?
diately after animals and birds began bowling
and screeching in a terrific manner. An
alarm was sounded, which quickly brought
tbe' district engines on the spot. A second
and third alarm was sent ont, but the flames
spread with such rapidity that almost belore
the firemen could get the water on the circus
was gone. Borne of the firemen, who were
first on the ground, state that the roan of ?
the animals were something frightful to listen
to, during the short time that it lasted, as
[.they, were speedily put out ol misery by the
rapidity with which the devouring element
lapped up the Under-like structures In which
they were caged. The only an??
mala saved out ol the valuable col"
lection, which Ur. Barnum had taken
such pains to secura, were two elephants and
a camel. The banding was two stories In
height, and composed nearly altogether of J
corrugated iron and wood, which, with that
portion of the building used as a circus, was
totally destroyed-the whole building burning
as thongh lt were a tlnder-boz. Nothing
could be done to Bave any more o? the
animals. The firemen state that they would
aooner risk falling walls, any time, than enter
that den of wild or tame beasts In a case of
this kind. Firemen, policemen and others
wbo were In the vicinity were unable to Btand
within one hundred feet of the burning build?
ing, the heat was so intense-which is veri?
fied by the fact that the windows o? the
Academy of Music were cracked and broken
by the heat; doors were blistered, and
the bill-boards in front of the Acade-1
my were burned on that side towards
the circus. Ic was very much feared that the
Academy ol Uuslc would also be consumed,
and lt evidently would had not the wind chang?
ed. Tbe fire next extended to tbe church ad?
joining, which ls known , as Grace Chapel or
Church o? the Redemption, and although the
firemen used their ntmost endeavors ' save
the building, they were unavailing, as lt shared
almost the same late as the circus, only the j
front walls being left standing. Barnum's i
losses are pot down at different sums, varying J
from $150,000 to 1300,000. As those parties
that do know anything about lt cannot be
found, lt ls Impossible to make any true esti?
mate of his losses. Ur. Barnum ls said to be
In New Orleans at present.
Pay Vp I
The State and county tax of fifteen mills,
for the fiscal year ending October 81, 1873,
I is payable before January 15 next, after j
which day delinquents will become liable to
a penalty of twenty per cent, which pen?
alty will be rigidly enforced. Ii anything
were to be gained by delay, and if any
hanging back would give tbe taxpayers any
additional security that the public revenue
wonld be faithfully appropriated to the pur?
poses for which it is levied, THE NEWS might
advise the people to withhold the taxes for
a time, or altogether. Bot snch a course
would be foolish in the extreme. The rate
of taxation is enormously high. It la, how?
ever, somewhat less than the people had
reason to expect and the prompt payment
of the tax will go far to enconrage friendly
relations with the government, by proving
that there is no disposition to engage in
factions opposition to the administration.
This is something gained. It should be dis?
tinctly understood, nevertheless, that tbe i
people pay this tax aa the only tax which is J
to be levied npon them daring the year.
That if the understanding, and the specu?
lators in Colombia need not imagine that
because aillions are to be paid into the
treasury in fifteen or twenty days, millions j
more can be had for the asking. So far and |
no farther, is the temper of the people.
The Sonta Carolina Railroad.
The subjoined article from the New York
Stockholder, an authority in financial mat?
ters, ls a pleasing indication that the Sooth
Carolin a Railroad Company is beginning to
obtain, in the money markets of the co an try,
the recognition to which Its sound position
and fine prospects entitle lt The Stock?
holder might bave gone farther, and still
have Bald ranch less iban the troth. In
bollding op its road and equipping it with?
out any increase of debt, the Sooth Carolina
Railroad Company accomplished a work
without parallel in American railroad histo?
ry; nor B3 on ld it be forgotten that tbe en?
tire cost ol $42,180 a mlle, which the Stock?
holder deems a moderate figure, includes an
investment of one million dollars in railroad
and steamboat connections, as well as the
cost of the large landed estate of the com?
pany in Charleston and along the line of
road. Wo ventare to say that there is no
railroad in the Southern country which, con?
sidering the difficulties of its position, has
been more admirably managed than the
Sooth Carolina Railroad, and no railroad
in the money market offers a better invest?
ment to t&ose wbo seek a high rate of inter?
est coopled with solid and unquestionable
[From the New York Stockholder, Dec. 22.]
"It ls noticeable In regard to the best man-1
aged and most successful railroads In the
Southern States that they are operated and
maintained at a ninon less percentage of gross
income than even the most prosperous trunk
lines In the Northern and Western States.
Taking the average of the latter class, it will
be fonnd that the annual expensee rather ex?
ceed than tall short oi sixty-six per cent of
the earnings. Probably the difference la in
some degree accounted for In the fact that
the competition for trafilo ls sharper in the
Northern and Western States, and that conse?
quently much busluess ls done which barely
pays a profit But stl!l we think that more ls
due, In tho case of a few conspicuously well
managed companies in the Booth, to a closer
and more conscientious scrutiny by the di?
rectors of tbe expenditure Incurred in run?
ning and maintaining the roads.
"In the case o? the railway mentioned at the
head of ibis artlole, owned by the Booth
Carolina Railroad Company, the directors of j
which are some of the most eminent and
wealthy cl?zens of Charleston and other towns
fn the State, we find that for a period of five
The aggregate earnings were....$6,822.913 86

Showing net earnings of.$2,600,796 74
'The expenses are thus but a little over
58$ per cent of the earnings, leaving 41J per
cent o? the Income as net earnings, and
this upon a trafilo o? little over $6000 per
"We should be pleased to be able to an?
nounce that the State finances of South Caro?
lina were and had recentj been In as good
condltien and in as sale and responsible bands
as are those of this prosperous and well
"We have noticed the same large ratio of net
earnings In the case of a few other of the best
railways in the South. High rates for freight
and Pausengers are obtained, while upright
and careful management secures low outlay
In all departments of expenditure.
"The South Carolina Railroad connects
Charleston, the ohlef port of South Carolina,
with Augusta, Georgia, one hundred and
thirty-seven miles, having two branches, one
to Camden, S. C., and another to Columbia,
the capital o? the State. The branches are J
one hundred and eight miles in length, making
the whole mileage operated by the company
two hundred and lorty-three miles. The
company's capital stock and funded debt
amount to $10,159,505, showlDg the road Lo be
capitalized at about $42,180 per mlle, which ls
considerably lower than the average rate of
cost of our Northern roadB. Tbe road is well
equipped, having 43 locomotive eDgines and
cars to the number of 532.
"Messrs. William J. Magrath, George A.
Trenbolm, L. D. DeSaussure, and other citi?
zens of like character and standing, compose
tbe board of directors. Mr. Magrath la presi?
dent, Alfred S. Tyler, vice-president, and J. j
T. Welsman, treasurer.
"Tbe company aonounces that it ls about to
retire its non-mortgage bonds and other tem- j
porary obligations through the proceeds of
second mortgage bonde, the amount of the |
issue of which will be $3,000,000. The price
ol these, so the treasurer gives notice, will,
after the 31st day of December instant, be 75
per cent, and accrued interest. The bonds thus
offered bear date October 1, and have attach
ed coupons for 7 per cent, per annum interest,
payable in April and October, in the City of
"The first mortgage upon the company's
valuable properly, which is fully equipped and
In excellent condition, amounts to only $3,
000,000, or about $12,500 per mlle.
" For the new bonds payment will be ac?
cepted as follows, viz : Two-thirds of the pur
chase money will be received in the 7 per cent,
non-mortgage bonds of the company at 76 per
cent, and the balance in cash.
"The low rate at which these bonds .are
offered, and tbe abundant security supplied in
the value of the property and the profitable
trafile ol the road, make the Investment a de?
sirable one, paying nearly 10 per cent, per
annum. The bonds may be purchased and re?
ceived in exchange at the Fourth National
Bank, in this oity, where John C. Cochran,

The Bine Ridge scrip.
The Columbia correspondent of THE
NEWS fears tbat there ia mischief in the
manoeuvrings of tbo unlucky holdera
of Blue Bldge scrip. It is not likely
tbat these mean anything more than a
fixed determination, on the part of the
holders, to get their money If they can.
We do not think that they can. But the
speculators who hearkened to the syren
voices of the Bing cannot be expected to
look upon this question with that lofty mo?
rality which controls the minds of the peo?
ple in general. These look upon the issue
of the Blue Bldge scrip as a swindle of the
first magnitude, and as they decidedly ob?
ject to giving any countenance to a swin?
dle, they decline to be taxed for the liquida?
tion of that scrip. The people of South Car?
olina, in other words, appeal toa law higher
than that which is framed by legislatures
and expounded by courts. ' That higher J
law Is the law of s elf-pro t ec Hon. which comes
into active operation whenever, under the
forms of a so-called law, a swindling job is
attempted to be fastened npon them.
So for the decisions of the courts are on the
side of right; and even if the holders of the
fraudulent scrip contrive to give a color or |
legality to their claims, they will still break
down, because the people will refuse to pay
them or to have anything to do with them.
Let them try it-just once 1
The Weenie IiftW.
The license law, proposed to be adopted
by the City Council, has excited considera?
ble discussion on the streets and at the fire?
side. It is denoancsd OB unconstitutional,
and as being unequal and oppressive in its
provisions. THE NEWS does not pretend to
decide whether it is, or is not, unconstitu?
tional-that is a matter for the courts to
determine. There is little doubt, however,
that the ordinance, as it stands, presses with
undue weight upon certain classes of citi?
zens. It is to be hoped that the whole ques?
tion will be carefully considered. And we
most not forget that, whatever deficiency in
the city revenue may arise from a total
abolition of the license law must be made up
by an additional tax upon real and personal
property; and every article of property,
from a dwelllog house to a child's cradle,
must submit to an extra tax. Let us, at
least, know what we are doing.
Help the Shivering Poor.
Christmas week, so far, has been a trying
time for all persons employed outdoors, like
policemen, car drivers and conductors,
newspaper carriers, Ac. Even in the clear,
bright sunlight of yesterday the cold was
catting and severe. Hard os it was, how?
ever, for those whom we have mentioned,
how terribly severe it must have been for
the poor, shivering wretches who have
scarcely enough clothing to cover them, and
who have neither fires nor fuel. Think of
them, you who gather around your own
raddy hearthstones, and send a Christmas
gift to the Ladies' Fuel Society.

JITEDiCINB AND FOOD COMBINED
VALENTINE'S MEAT JUICE.
TESTIMONY OF CHARLESTON PHYSICIANS. !
This valuable preparation, recently discovered,
has been extensively tested here and throughout
the country during the past summer, and has
muy merited the character claimed for lt.
Each bottle contains the Juice of four pounds of
the best beef, exclusive of rat.
Mr. valentino, the patentee and proprietor of
this preparation, has in his possession numerous
testimonials from the best and most experienced
physicians of the land. Among them the follow?
ing are presented to the readers of TH B NIWS,
who will need no further assurance or the quality
and efficacy of the article here offered:
CHARLESTON, s. C., September 26,1872.
Dear Slr-Some time ago 1 had trie honor to re?
ceive by express specimens of your "Meat Juloe"
for trial. I bave not thus far acknowledged your
kind communication for the simple reason that I
never certify to things of which 1 know nothing.
I have, in the meantime, tested your "Prepara?
tion," fully and cautiously, and the result of my
experience has been, thar In all oases where sup?
port ls demanded, whether In the teething child
or the adult worn down by disease, your "Prepa?
ration" has, under my observation, proved far
more efficacious' than all the farrago or farina?
ceous articles and so-called extracts, which often
do more harm than good.
I am. very respectfully, your obedient servant,
E. GEDDINGS, M. D.
Mr. M. S. VALENTINE, Richmond, Va.
CHARLESTON, S. C., September ll, 1872.
MR. M. S. VALBNTINB:
Dear slr-I have made quite au extensive trial
of your "Meat Juice" dur luz the past summer,
particularly in those protrac ted and exhausting
dit e^ses Incident to Infancy and childhood, so
familiar to our Southern physicians. The trial
has resulted lo a preference for your "Meat
Juice" above anthe Extrada which I have hither?
to used. So far, ic has tully come up to all that
has been claimed for lt, and If its preparation ls
conduct!.d with the same care, and the purity of
ihe materials maintained as heretofore, 1 have
no doubt its use will oe greatly extended.
Very respectfully your obedient servant, 1

MR. M. S. VALBNTINB:
Dear Slr-Your samples of "Meat Juice" were
received through the politeness of your agent,
and uBed very freely during the summer In cho?
lera infantum, low forms of fever and other dis?
eases peculiar to this climate.
I cheerfully add my testimony to its dietetic
value, and regard your "Meat Preparation" of
great benefit, not only In inland e. but also in
adult practice. It ls with pleasure that I can
recommend Its use to tho profession generally
from pact experlenoe and the happy results in my
practice. Very respectfully, Ac.

Mr. M. S. VALBNTINB, Esq.: *
Dear Slr-During the past Bummer I have had
afuiropportnnlty if testing your "Preparation of
Meat Juice." particularly amongst children suf?
fering from Darrhota from "Teething." I And
that as soon as they lose their appetite and com?
mence to degenerate generally, your Preparation
administered is well retained and most often en?
joyed by the little suffere/s. They improve rapidly
in health and strength. Other preparations are
not so easily tolerated, on account of their un
plea?ant odor and taste. K??M?
I consider the contents of your little bottle
most invalusble In all acute waji lng,d Besses.
Very respectfully, W. M. ?ITCH, M. U.
