NEW YORK, October 23.-The horse
disease, oooaring in the different cities
outside of New York, and whioh had
oaused a great deal of excitement among
the stable-keepers and oar companies,
has made its appearance in this city,
causing tho greatest panic. The disease
seems to have appeared first in the city
in magnitude Monday afternoon, al?
though there were some few cases of an
earlier date. The contagious qualities
of the disease are very violent, and with?
in twenty-four hours from the time the
first symptoms of uiokness wore noticed
in one large stable, 1,000 horses, under
the same roof were similarly afflicted. A
reporter ha? visited a number of tho
principal stables, and s tat os that no les?
than 7,000 horses in all were affected up
to yesterday evening. The horses of the
different lines of stage, street car and
omnibus are all more or loss affeoted.
On the 6th avenue line railroad 200
horses were stricken down ia a few hours;
the company having been compelled to
withdraw some of their oars. Over 2,000
horses on the 3d avenue line are suffer?
ing. In the stables of twenty-three stage
lines, some 600 horses are laid up. Up
to midnight last night, no deaths had oc?
curred, except in the 6th avenue stables.
In Brooklyn, the disease is reported as
spreading. It is gravely apprehended
tbat the disease will spread so as to ma?
terially interrupt the means of traffic
throughout the city. There are some
14,000 car and stage horses in New York.
If equine travel becomes stopped thie
season, the losses to business will be very
heavy. The disease is denominated
oatarrbal fever. It commences with s
oongh, and in about thirty-six hours ie
accompanied by a.running from the oyo.'
and nose, and the horses become weak,
The affection is thought to be similar tc
the Canadian epidemic.

A COLORED MAN KILLED AT DORN'S
MINE.-A colored man named Jack
Brown was killed at Dom's Mine on last
Wednesday night by a piatol|shot, whioh
passed through his lungs. According to
the testimony before a coroner's ioqnest,
held on the next day by James McCas
lao, Esq., he occupied ono end of a
double log cabin, and the inmates of the
other end heard the shot and the cry of
the murdered man aud the falling of his
body, but did not learn of his death till
next morning, when the dead body was j
discovered. Tho whole matter ia in?
volved in mystery. A white man named
Lewis Banks bas been arrested for the
murder, but the circumstances amount j
only, we leam, to some grounds of sus?
picion. Neither Banks nor Brown went j
to the election on Wednesday, and there
was no known ill will between them, and
certainly no political quarrel. What?
ever the causo, and whoever the perpe?
trator of the crime, there was certainly
no connection with politics in the affair.
HANGED.-Martin Baynard, who was
convioted with Columbas and Oovan
Adair at Hendersonville one year ago, of
tho murder of Silas Weston and three |
of his children, was hanged at Hender?
sonville on Friday last. He was twice
respited, and made a confession before
the Adairs were executod, in which he
stated that Henderson Adair, Oolnmbue,
Govan, Oraton and Averv, all so aa of
Henderson, and himself, murdered
Weston and his family. The old man
and Oraton and Avery were arrested
upon this confession, and are now in jail
at Rutherfordton. The State proposed
to make a witness of Baynard, but Gov.
Oaldwell refused to further respite, and
he paid the penalty of his crime on Fri?
day last.-Raleigh Era.
INCENDIARY FIRE -We learn from
Capt. J. G. S. Brown that on Tuesday
night last, his gin-house, with teu bales
of cotton, two gins, fan, thresher, 4.000
bundles of fodder, and four loads of hay,
were entirely consumed by fire. Oapt.
Brown states that there is not a shadow
of doubt but that the fire was set, and as
his property has been on several other
occasions set fire to, the last occurring in
February, by which he lo9t several valu?
able horses, no one will doubt the fact j
now. This is a most diabolical and out?
rageous act, and the sympathies of the
whole people will be enlisted in behalf of
bim who has been so repeatedly made
the viotim of hate.-Newberry Herald.
DEATH OP A USEFUL YOUNG CHARLES
TONIAN.-A large oirole of friends will be
pained by the announcement of the
death, yesterday, of Mr. George E.
Steinmeyer, a son of the popular pro?

ceased gentleman had exhibited, in a
marked degree, energy and business taot
in the successful development of the
lumber business, and bade fair to have
achieved an enviable prominence among
tho pushing business men of our com?
munity. Mr. Steinmeyer was a member
of the German Friendly Society and of
the Pioneer Fire Company.

Tins TELEGRAPH BUSINESS.-The ex
teat of the telegraph basiaess ia tins
country, as Well ns its profits, is denoted
by tho annual exhibit of a singlo com?
pany, the Western Union, just made at
its meeting in New York. In the elec
tion for its twenty-nino dircotors, the
number of votes east was 273,110, repre?
senting stock amounting to $27,311,000.
Large as the list is, we do not see among
all the nnmoB any one residing South of
New York. Tho list ie composed mainly
of New Yorkers, with a few WeBt of that
oity. The polioy of the company for?
merly was to distribute the directors at
the prinoipnl pointB along tho main lines.
From the report read on the occasion by
President Orton, wo learn that on the
30th of June, 1872, tho company ope?
rated 62,032 miles of line, with 137,190
miles of wire, through 5,237 offices. The
increase during the year past was 6,000
miles of line, 16,039 miles of wire, and
631 offices. To perform tho lubor re?
quired, the company haB in its employ
8,347 operators, who last year transmit?
ted 12^444,495 messages, being an in?
crease ot 1,788,422 over the year pre
codiug. The gross receipts for the year
were $8,437,095.77, the expenses $5,600,
863.16, leaving a not profit of $2,7.70,
232.61, whioh is au increaeo over the last
?ear of $819,646.92 ia the gross receipts,
562,075.97 in the expenses, and $257,
570.95 in the not profit. The present
Western Union system datos from tho
consolidation of tho United States, the
South-western aud tho American compa?
nies, iu 1860, and its not profits during
the six years ending June 30, 1872,
amounted to $17,116,694.23. Of this
sum, $4,850,879.34 was distributed to tho
stockholders in dividends, and 81,81)8,
401.98 disbursed for interest on the com?
pany's bonds. The balance-$10,361,

of new lines, the ereotion of additional

SOUTH AMERICAN GOLD DISCOVERIES.
It never ruins but it pours, and tho dis?
covery of Arizona diamonds, as big as
pumpkins and much more plentiful, is
followed by reports of gold fields from
the land of the Orinoco, whose shining
ore takes the shine all off the now
prosaio Pacific Blope of our own Union.
The gleam of hidden treasure now re?
vealed in gems and precious metals
scintillates through the brains of eager
fortune bunters, and only the stability of
our young men, so far famed, keeps
them from deserting the busy spindles
of the East and leaving tho rich loam of
the gardons of the West unturned, to
debouch from the defile of slow accumu?
lation into the broad plain of sudden
wealth. The gold fields of the Guayana
lie in the richest portion, sixty milos
South of the upper end of the Delta of
the Orinooo, though the territory claim?
ed to be rich in the precious ore extends
over four degrees of longitude and three
of latitude. The Congress of Vene?
zuela has enacted laws and regulations
removing all obstructions to the full de?
velopment of the region, and already
American and creole companies have
availed themselves of the new advan?
tages and amassed vast fortunes. It is
more accessible to New York than Ari?
zona is, and no reason exists why the
riches of that quarter of the globe should
not fall into tho same encrgct c bunds that
have uncovered the wealth of California.
As a Now Yorker claims a discovery
whereby he made 1,500 pounds of dia?
monds in a singlo night, which were to
him $24,000,0(JO, thero seems uo good
reason why everybody shouldn't be
banded in gold and glitter in solitaires.
RUSSIAN THIEVES.-The French Jour?
nal des Debata quotes a letter, dated
Nijui Novgorod, the 10th ultimo, in
which an account is given of a daring
robbery perpetrated by thieves at that
place. The correspondent says: "On
the 3d of September, at 7 o'clock, tho
greater theatre, whioh contains 1,000
persons, was full. The pieco represented
was a favorite ono, entitled "Crime and
its Punishment." Among those present
were tho leading military and civil of?
ficers, the head of the polico, and a
largo number of police officers. While
the first act was being played, and the
attention of the spectators was fixed on
the stage, a report was suddenly heard,
a slight smoko filled the upper part of
the theatre, and aery of 'fire' was raised.
Everybody rushed to the doors, but only
one was open. Terror became general
when this was discovered. The orowd
was enormous, and persons were thrown
and trampled upon. The thieves, who
had combined to cause this alarm, took
the opportunity of seizing whatever they
could lay their bauds upon. They tore
ear-rings from thc women, and stole
watches and studs from tho men. This
scene lasted for about ten minutes, until
the people employed in tho theatro and
the polico made it known that there was
no trace of fire. When tranquillity had
been restored, inquiry waa made respect?
ing the articles stolen, and it was found
that the value exceeded 100,000 rubles.
Several persons wore killed; three men
and a woman were taken lo the hospital
dangerously wounded, and an actress re?
ceived a serious wound. The thieves
ooutrived to escape."

A RUM ONE.-Tho celebrated Sam.
Briok, of Augusta, Mu., made a speech
lately, in the Augusta reform club, whioh
for both pathos and humor is not often
excelled. It is neoessary to note tho
fact that Mr. Brick lost a portion of his
nose somo years since by a surgical oper?
ation. In concluding bis remarks, the

rum has done much for me.
TUE COMMUNISTS.-The pardoning of
the Communist prisoners, in Parit-, na?
turally led to tho belief that the field of
Satory would witness no more execu?
tions. lu this, however, the people
havo beeu mistaken. The throe men
lust shot there were too deeply stained
willi thc crimes of that sanguinary epoch
to bo pardoned. Their names were Lo
live, D?nivelle and Deschampa. Lolive
formed one of the party that massacred
the Archbishop. When the latter raised
bis hands to bless his assassins, Lolive
interrupted him with a "Hold, there is
my blessing," and raised bis rille and
fired upon him. D?nivelle, after tortur?
ing the Count Beaufort for an hour, shot
him with a revolver while lying wounded
on tho ground, and, lastly, ran him
throigh with a bayonet. Deschamps
atao behaved with the utmost cruelty to
a young soldier taken prisoner, before
tho entry of the troops from Versailles.
These condemned men were, as usual,
tied to stakes, blind-folded, and shot.
The whole proceeding was conducted in
tho mest stolid and business-like man?
ner. They died bravely, which, it is
said, is tho more remarkable, as they did
not expect to bo executed, and were
awakened out of a sound sleep ouly two
hours before they were shot.
WHOLESALE HORSE MURDER. - The

All the reports, which have hitherto

President and Seoretary of the Indian
Commission so pronounce them. Ac?
