Thirty Thousand Word Telegraphed
A New York correspondent of the
Chicago Tribune, writing from New
York concerning the improved tele
graph instruments now used by the
Atlantic and Pacific Telegraph Com
pany, says :
A number of merchants and mem
bers of the press of this city and other
cities to-day witnessed n trial of the
automatic system of telegraphing, at
the olllce of the Atlantic and Pacific
Telegraph Company, 1!8 Broadway.
The wires were connected between the
New York and Washington offices,
and the uew invention thoroughly
tested. The test lasted one hour, and
proved highly satisfactory, aud was
pronounced a success in every respect.
Five hundred words per minute were
transmitted. The total number of
words sent amounted to 80,000 in the
hour occupied in the trial. Tbe auto
matic system has been used during the
past week between Washington, Bos
ton, and Buffalo, in sending and re
ceiving the dispatches of the American
Press Association, and has given entire
satisfaction, the quantity of matter
transmitted being nearly doubled, and
the time consumed greatly lessened.
The Atlantic & Paclflo Company's
lines are to be equipped throughout
with automatic machinery at the ear
liest possible moment. This will give
the Company facilities for transmitting
business several times greater thau
those of any competing company, to
any point, besides decreasing one-half
the cost of labor.
The Atlantic & Pacific Telegraph
Company is now the exclusive owner
of Edeson'a quadruple! patents, by
which four messages are transmitted
overoue wire at the same time.
It is also expected that within ten
days the Company will have comple
ted aud iu operation a new system of
automatic printing, by which 260
words can be Bent between New York
aud Washington, or 200 words between
New York and Buffalo.
Hnonron of TruiNiM Hailed Down
The following circular has been sent
out by the Commissioner of Immigra
tion for tbe past two years. By this
enterprise it has obtained through the
press of Great Britain and the North a
circulation of several hundred thou
sand. The State's attractions could
hardly be preseuted In more condensed
form, not tbe benefits be eveu approxi
mately calculated :
Tennessee contains 29,000,000 acres
of land, of which only 6,000,009 are
improved, but from this small portion
the productions by negro labor before
the war, principally corn, wheat, cot
ton and stock, made the Htate third In
wealth of the Union. This indicates
the oharacter of soil.
Negro labor has lost its reliability
and efficiency since the war, and white
labor Is scarce, depreciating real estate
26 to 50 per cent. This depreciation
can be immediately restored by relia
ble and efilcient labor, because our
markets are better now than before the
war. Thus a bonus of 26 to 60 per
cent, is offered to every good farmer
that will invest and work here.
Slavery abolished, necessitates di
versity of industries. Nature has pro
vided peculiar advantages for manu
factures iu Tennessee. Inexhaustible
iron ore, of the best quality, costs at
furnace $1.70 to i3 per ton. Is made into
pig irou here for from $12 to $22 per
lou. Heavy timbered laud, oak, hick
ory, poplar, ash, walnut, etc., at $1 to
$6 per acre. Coal that will make irou

Commissioner of Immigration,
A curious condition of affairs exists
in regard to a new session. Tbe Dem
ocrats in the House, under lead of Mr.
Randall, take every occasion to an
nounce their strong aversion to any
early sessions of tbe next Congress.
Some of the prominent Republicans iu
the Senate think indications are strong
that the Democrats therein intend to
delay important business so as to make
a session necessary. There are also
numbers of Republicans who regard a
new session with great fuvor, thinking
that the sooner the Domocruts assume
the responsibilities of legislation tbe
better. The majority of both parties
in each House, however, seem opposed
to forcing a call for an extra session

Dear Faulkner Dogs are the only
specimen of the brute pcrswashun who
liave to belong to sumtKMly. u they nave
a master they are proud aud happv, and
it makes no difference to them whether
they belong to a king or a pauper. A dug
wlio don t belong to ennyuody is uz lone
suin and hopeless az a lost goose. They
never ts-como vagrants hi choice, and will
stick to a man, and lite for him too, after
every other friend has deserted bun. This
takt alone makes a human being noble,
and it ought, ut least, to make a dog re
specktable. I hav knowu ritch people to
lose a dog, and hav to advertise for him,
and giv 10 dollars to git him bak, but I
never knu a beggar to hav to do it. It iz
az hard for a beggar to git rid ov his dog
as It iz for the dog to git rid of hiz fleas.
Dear Seymour The grate trouble with
most ov the literary people now days, iz
they read too much and think too little.
They kau tell yu the title ov every book
