Perpetual Lease of the Fort

Cflgor5 ' ' ; ' ' l- ; : ' 1 -
The negotiations by committees
on the part ot the Directors
of the Pittsburgh, Eort Wayne
and Chicago, and the Pennsylvania
Central Railroad Companies have
respited in an arrangement whereby
the Central leases the Fort Wayne
perpetually, on what are understood
to be the following terms :
lha Pennsylvania Company
Uar t ani(uUith obligtnona
of the Fort Wayne road, including
bonds and taxes or every Kind, ana
to pay to the stock-holders 1 1,380,000
per annum, net, or 12 per cent, upon
the present eapital stock of $11,500,
00O. The Fort Wayne Company is
to keep up its separate organization
and to have the power of fixing the
amount of its hnre capital.' It is al
so agreed that if the net profits of
the Fort Wayne , road shall exceed
$1,880,000 above the interest and tax
es, the excess shall be invested in the
permanentiroprovementof (he road,
until at least $5,01)0,000 have been
th.ua Invested. The net profits last
year were $1,950,000, and this year
promises to be much more; so that
not less than $000,000 it is believed,
will be applied by the Pennsylvania
Railway Company to the improve
ment of the leased road, during the
first year.'V ; :
' The lease will go into effect o the
1st of July. The Fort Wayne road
have their earnings for the half yearj
as well as the money to be received
from the sale of the supplies now on
hand. The surplus cash will be di
vided and will probably amount to
10 per cent., although -it cannot of
course now be definitely stated.
Tue Central Committee acted under
instructions, but the Fort Wayne
directors will take a vote of the
stock-holders, which will result af
firmatively. - It is understood, how
ever, that tbe beat friends . of the
road, and those who have managed
its affairs with so much success, are
uot friendly to the arrangement.
They vlrtt ally pass out of existence.
The Fort Wayne directors have as
good as agreed upon a dividend of
seventy-two and a half per cent,
.Wfe are Justified in paying, that
thW absorption -tf -the -Fort- Woyne
will result in bringing into existence
a new and independent road or
roads between Pittsburgh and -Chicago,
connecting with the Connells
ville. It is not B-merv surmisn

of the Fort Wayne will have Its
compensating- benefits, and in this
way ultimately will the none nls ot

The New York Times (Radical)
makes a severe criticism upon the
absurd doctrine of Senator Morton
that the two-thirds requirement In

BATTLE MOUNTAIN, Nevada,
May 24th, 1869
-Dear Father: When I wrote
to you last I 'as at Winnemuca in
this State, on the Pacific Railroad.
About throe weeks ago 1 1 left it and
caune to thia place. This is a silver
mining district, and is said to be the
best ia the State, Ihere are several
very rich mines here. The little Giant-
mine is the most important - one
and is. being worked the most; taking
out some t wen ty-one hundred dollars
every twenty-four hours.. The mine
1a owned by a company of lour nieu
one of them, Mr. Fox, is from Tus
carawas County, Ohio.
Since I have been here 1 have been
working for the little Giant Co.-' I
have had to work hard but so far I
have stood It yerv well and am able
to take three hearty meals a day. I
am getting four" dollara a day in
gold, and ; paying r eight t dollaxa." .a

call here a Rauch, which consists
of from 1C0 to. 400 acrei aud vhicb

very fine crops. They do not nead
to feed their stock unless they work
them. Oxen that have worked hard
all summer aod turned out in tbe
be fall,' will, fatted and make good
beef in the spring. . . ' i
Men that have lived here for sev
enteen years say they have not yet
seen a winter, but what cattle would
keep fat running out. By this you
may know that the climate is very
fine and as a stock raising country is
unsurpassed, from the fact that it
costs co thing lor feed and. plenty of
good waler' antf a very line range
either ia Mountain or valley. . . :
The stock business is a very prof
itable one here. There is a man
here now that has a herd of cattle

within hailing distance, under same

She gradually - went ahead of us, 'as
she sailed aster; but when she got
about three .or four times her own

It being at the time very inics and
raining, the consequence was, "the

also, with the Bea making a clear
breacn over us. as we were tne last
to break up, I witnessed the last of
the Zetu9. She was scarcely half an
hour on the rocks when her main
nd mizzen mast went overboard.
Tbe sea by this time was breaking
mountain high, and she went to
peices. We next tried to launch a
boat, when a very heavy sea broke
on board, smashed theboat to pieces,
and washed us down to tbe main
deck, when ' we all got forward.
The second mate's leg and ribs on
tbe right side were broken. - The
weather was very., cold. We then
constructed a raft of deck planks as
they were washed forward Then
the foremast went. We were then
fifteen souls clinging to the bowsprit;
then with a short prayer commend-
ne ourselves to the mercy or uoa,
bowsprit went and all hands with it.

causrht me bv the legs and nauied

Aaron Burr. the Third Vice
President of the United States.
In an article lately upon the Vice Presi
dents of the United States, we briefly allu
ded to Aaron Burr, the third person chosen
to that office, intending thereafter to more
particularly notice hint. If he was not the
most eminent man who ever occupied the
station, his life was certainly the most
eventf at To the end of time his name
will figure greatly in American annals "to
point a moral and adorn a tale.1' There
are thousands and tens of thousands who
refer to him who are very imperfectly ac
quainted with, if, Indeed, they know any
thing of, his personal history. We have a
mythological character whom we label
Burr, but which bears nevertheless, but a
slight resemblance to the original person
of that name. .
If there is anything in religious and pi
ous ancestry to govern a child, Mr. Burr
had it ia perfection. He was the grand
son of the Rev. Dr. Edwards, perhaps the
most distinguished religious polemic this
nation has produced. His treatise upon
the "Freedom of uie Will" is in the libra
ry of almost every orthodox clergyman,
and is considered conclusively to dem
onstrate the fact that while God foresaw
from the beginning what the future desti
ny or every person ' would be, he at the
same time placed It in their power to choose
for themselves that destiny. The daugh
ter of Dr. Edwards, Kilher by name, was
the mother of Aaron Burr. His father
was an eminent clergyman, the President
of Princeton College, New Jersey. Grow
ing up under the teachings of such per
sons, they nevertheless had no influence
upon Aaron's convictions, and. when be
arrived at an age to choose for himself,
although never an avowed skeptic, he was
very far from being orthodox. The ear
lier events of his career are w:dely known.
Leaving college leaving a sick bed at
the age of seventeen, with a slight and
fragile form, he entered the Revolutionary
Army, was one of Benedict Arnold s
command which crossed the forests of
Maine, enduring hardships compared to
which Jsapoleou's passage of the Alps was
a holiday tour. He was near Montgom
ery when he fell at the disastrous attack
by the Americans upon Quebec, on the
last day of the year 1 775. Gen. Washing
ton long hesitated wh ither he should ap
point Burr or Hamilton as his military
secretary. Thus early in life did the ri
valry of these two men commence. 1 he
preference was given to Hamilton. The
war being over, in which both din tin gui ti
ed themselves, they became lawyers of
eminence - in New York. Mr. Burr, al
though ' bnt thirty five years of age, had
uch ability as a man, such shrewdness as
a politician,' titai he defeated Gen. Scliy-
lur, Hamilton's father in law, one of the
wealthiest men of the continent, as United
States Senator from New -York. His tri
umph was remarkable, for in that age
wealth and veteran service were almost
Time passed on. Burr rapidly rose.
He passed the crowd of Revolutionary
soldiers, orators and statesmen, and at
forty two was Vice President of the Uni
ted States He would have been President
but for the personal opposition of Alex.
Hamilton. Thomas Jefferson, whom he
so nearly succeeded in- defeating for the
Chief Magistracy, . although of the same
party, never forgave him, but pursued
him ever after with intense hatred. Burr's
time as Vice President being on the point
of expiring, be became a candidate for
Governor of New York. - His election
would have been sure, but for the opposi
tion ot Mr, Hamilton. In the course of
that campaign language of an exceedingly
defamatory charactor, used In private con
versation by Mr. Hamilton respecting
him, came to the ears of Mr. Burr.
In that day almost every distinguished
man fought duels. The Marquis of Wei
lealey, Canning and Casuereigh, Moore
the Poet, Jeflry the critic, ai.d others,
had theirs in England. De Wit Clinton,
Jackson, Clay, Van Nesse and Randolph
resorted to them in the United states to
heal their wounded honor. A son of Al
exander Hamilton, who had hardly reach
bis manhood, had been killed in a duel at
Uoboken. It was there that Hamilton
met, after his son's decease, Burrs chal
lenge, and was killed. The fall of so dis
tinguished a man created great excitement,
and elicited much moral indignation
against dueling. Nevertheless Burr was
not molested, and proceeded to Washing
ton, where for the session he presided as
Vice President. Indeed, he was never
called upon to abide any judicial prosecu
tion. Keeling, however, that a stigma
had been east upon his name in New York,
he determined sever to reside in that city.
He was urged to go to Tennessee to
throw cut his sign as a lawyer at Nash
ville where ia a short time he was prom
ised a seat in Congress. But he abandon
ed this idea and gave his attenUon to the
Mexican scheme Burr's object was to go
to Mexico with an; armed band to place
himself at the head of the patriotic move
ment, and become the Emperor of that
country. In order-to avoid, .the neutrality
laws, it was enveloped in such mystery,
the idea got out that it was his purpose
to separate the South western States from
the Union. The President. Mr. Jefferson,
did not like him. His arrest was ordered,'
and he was brought to trial before the Su
preme Court at Richmond, Va. The Chief
Justice, John Marshall, was one of the
most intimate friends of , Alex. Hamilton
but strong as his prejudices against his
slaver mieht be. he did not allow them
interfere with his conduct as a Judge.
Burr bad able counsel to assist him, bnt
throughout was his .own best lawyer.

friendly to his cause were AndrewJack

to interest either England or rrance in

Secret Organizations Against
No doubt can exist that there is a dan
gerous organization of white men against
the employment of Chinamen. It is a se
cret . organization, extending throughout
this " State and , Nevada. The circle., in
Truckee alone numbers over two hundred.
This organization had much to do willi the
recent foolish strike by the miners in Grass
Vallev. It is plausibly regarded ' as a pop
ular move to humbug workingmen into
voting the white man's ticket. A snort
time since Santa Cruz had quite a demon'
stration of these noble specimens of the
"white man's party." Some ot them ea

Vine Hill, during the absence of himself
and wife, drove some Chinamen off after
horribly maltreating them, abused and ter

The fallowing, - which was received last
Tuesday, by John Elitcli, restaurant keep1
er of San Jose, is a fair specimen ot lbs
threatening letters sent to men who em
ploy Chinese, and a' fitting illustration of
the teachings of the "constitutional" De
mocracy on the Chinese question :
"Mr. Elitcu Sir: Having heard that
you employ Chinamen in your establish

of the committee of Regulators and Pro.

;: -We heard yesterday anr incident,
from, which had we- the space . to
spare, a first-class I romance vmlght
be written up," ' -Some time last fall
a young lady came to St. Joseph from. .
the East,; to spttndthe winter with a
relative.;-! Unassuming, handsome.
graceful. and,inteliigentv she created
a most favo'rnbie impression '-with
those wha enjoyetr-the pleasure- of
her acquaintance, iand ; formed an
agreeable addition to the social circle
lo. whii h-sl.y.jnoved. . She was re
markably j'tlred and quiet in her
manners, ami studiously sought - to
avoid all ostentatious display, in her
apparel, bat at thd same time exhib
ited in her dress tbe; most exquisite
taste, and In her. manners: the most
elegant refinement "'' ; uii 'Jr"
. Shortly after the lady 's arrival she
was called upon by a young gentle-
man (a resident of this eounty.) who
had formed her acquaintance in the
East, and soon alter his visits became
frequent and -his attention marked
and devotedj . It was noticed, as tbe
friendship of the two ripened into in
timacy, that the lady began to Insti
tute, in a very cautious manner, in
quiries for the purpOse of ascertaining
whether the gentleman had the least
idea of her history and condition,
AI af a . a a.
nuu particularly 01 ner naanciai af
fairs. , These inquiries were prosecu
ted for some time, ' and seemed to
haVe resulted satisfactorily. At last,
after a courtship of some months,
she committed her happiness and
fortunes to the care of tbe gentleman
alluded to; and the celebration of the
nuptials were duly recorded In the
early part of the present spring. Tho
happy couple immediately started to

And now comes the seqnel.; 'The
quiet and unassuming young ' lady
was in reality the possessor of Im
mense wealth and the undoubted
heiress of an estate worth over $4,
000,000 a fact wholly unknown at
the time, even to the gentleman who
had sought her hand and heart. She
bad taken this method to test the
sincerity of her admirer, and finding
bis heart the true gold, had committ
ed unhesitatingly a golden treasure
and a pure, warm heart to his keep
ing, without even permitting the
many gallant youths of St.' Joseph to
catch tbe faintest idea of the glitter
ing prize apparently -within their
reach. The parties to this romantic
affair are now living happily togeth
er, and it is not probable that the
agreeably disappointed husband will
ever move to Chicago and apply for
a diyorce on account ot the -innocent
little fraud practiced upon him. 11;:
