Westward the star ot empire
takes its way. The Superintendent
of the Coast' Survey locates the
centre of gravity of onr population,,
by the census of I870t near Wil
' mington, Clinton county, Ohio, forty-five
miles northeast of Cincinna
ti. A line drawn from the north
eastern corner of Ohio - where it
abuts on Lake Erie, to Pensacola.
Florida, divides the population of
the United States, by the census, in
to equal parts.
The severity ofthe season is shown
' in the fact that between Huntington
and Peru, Inana,sixty locomotives
' were frozen up for nearly forty-five
hours. .Hogs, cattle and sheep were
frozen to death, and many person
traveling through the country were
frost-bitten, notwithstanding their
buflo robes. . On Sunday morning
the thermometer stood at 25 degrees
below zero at Wabash: which was
about as cold as people generally
' can stand who have to move about
: in the open air.
The question of removing ' the
capital of West Virginia still agi
tates the people of that State, and
' excites much feeling. . One arga
ment urged against it is that it would
"utterly dismember the Democratic
f party" in West Virginia. ' If that
dismemberment was not accomplish-
i ed in the re-election of Jacobs, and
in casting the electoral' vote of the
State for Grant and Wilson, we have
been laboring under a mistaken im
JOKE ON SUMNER
. A good joke on Senator Sumner
is current in Washington. Every
body knows how persistent he has
been in introducing his Civil Rights
bill in season and oat of season; al
so, how . equally persistent Senator
' Bayard, of Delaware, has been in
opposing it The other day, when
Sumner's bill was reached on the
calendar, Senator Carpenter, who
was in the chair, turned toward Bay
ard and said : "Does the Senator
from Delaware object?" "I will if
the chair desires it," replied Bay
ard, "but I did not say so." A burst
of Senatorial laughter followed this
reply showing not only a keen ap
preciation of the joke itself, but of
the ridiculous attitude that Senator
, Sumner and his Democratic breth
ren occupy towards each other.
A SAD CHRISTMAS.
Never, perhaps, was a Christmas
so darkened by catastrophes in
Pennsylvania as this has been. The
. horror near Corry, where twenty-
one persons suffered death in fright
ful form had scarcely bee announc
ed when news came from Williams
port of another even surpassing it
in fearful character. - During the
Christmas services at a Baptist
Church of that city, whither the
people flocked to give praise for the
blessings of the year, a frail floor
gave away and five hundred persons
- were without a moment's warning
.precipitated into the cellar below.
. Fourteen were killed instantly and
forty maimed in different degress.
Here is another warning to arhitects
and builders! When will they learn
that utmost safety is the first re
quisite of every edifice, and that
ornamentation or proportions are
small in, comparison? At Philadel
phia, on Tuesday, there was still
another catastrophe, the simpl
. weight of snow being sufficient to
crush in the roof of a factory,
among the ruins of which several
workmen were suffocated. N
AN OPEN QUESION.
A tabular statement, compiled
from official sources, of the respec
tive amounts of the national debts
of twenty-seven governments in
1862 and 1872, shows an aggregate
increase within that period of nine
thousand four hundred and thirteen
millions of dollars. There are but
three nations in the world which
pay as they go without adding to
their outstanding obligations onr
own country, Great Britain and the
little kingdom of Holland. In all
the others increase of national in
debtness is continually going on
accompanied, of course, by a cor
responding increase of taxation,
which in some countries is piled up
to a degree that absolutely absorbs
the whole surplus earnings of labor
and capital. Compared with re
sults, it is perhaps an open question
whether modern government is not

RUN ITS RACE.
The epizootic appear to have
very nearly run its race principal
ly because there are no more horses
to conquer. From the Atlantic to
the Pacific, from the frozen North
to the sunny South, it has appeared
and nearly disappeared, "and every

what is it and what is the canse?J
Not along the surface or the earth,

A few nights ago, while Miss Neil-
son was playing Juliet at Booth's
Theater in New York, as she was in
the act of stabbing herself in the
last scene, a lady in the audience
gave a scream of horror that was
heard all over the house, and then,
as if becoming conscious of the il
lusion, shcsupplemented it with a
sigh of relief equally as audible.
The audience roared with a laugh
ter that could not be suppressed.andJ
it was as much as the dead Borneo
and the dyidg Juliet could do to
keep from sharing the merriment.
A question has recently been rais
ed as to the responsibiltiy of the
Pullman Palace Car Company for
valuables lost in sleeping cars. It
is well known that this company
own the sleeping cars wluch are run
over nearly all railroads. It is held
that the Pullman Company is an inn
keeper.and.held liable the same as
any other, keeper of public noose
for the loss of valuables of jts guests
In consequence of this safes are to
be placed in all sleeping cars, in
which passengers can deposit their
valuables the same as at a hotel.
The last few days of 1872 have
been ones of sorrow to many hearts
in onr land. From all quarters of
our country come sad reports of ter
rible accidents by rail, by sea and
otherwise. The extreme cold weather
of the past two weeks has rendered
travel really dangerous. We know
not when we were safe. Tie snap
ping of a rail, the breaking of a
flange, has hurled many a soul into
eternity in an instant. From the
east, the west, the north 'and the
south, comes up the cry of distress.

snow that was scnped up had little

two axes were available, and the
