New Yore, Jan. 30. It is reported
that newspaper compositors contemplate
advancing their rates to sixty cents per

Thero is little prospect of the printers

lt is officially announced that the
rVsnsylvania Railroad has leased, for
lbrtyfour years, tho Columbus, Chicago
and Indiana Conlral Railroad, running
from Columbus. As tho Pennsylvania
company already controls tho roads be
tween Pittsburg and Columbus, this leasef
with their own road through Pennsylva
nia, gives them an unbroken lino from
Philadelphia and, by tho New Jersey
Central road, from Now York to Chi
cago. Other arrangements, nearly per
fected, will carry the line to St. Louis.
The number of miles road thus united in
tho bands of a single company will not bo
far from two thousand.
Jay Gould acting for tho Erie railroad
company, had nearly completed the lease
of the Columbus and Chicago road, but
tho Pennsylvania company stepped in at
tho last moment and offered better terms.
Unless, therefore, tho Erio can get the
Central Pittsburg, Fort Wayno and Chi

it will be unable to secure through cons

Horace Greeley and his followers. He
sharply assailed Mr. Whito, of Greene,

upon extending suffrage to the disfran

carried out, a Democrat will be the next

fusal of this body to act in accordance

Wo must commiserate the unfortunate
Charles VI., of France, who sought to bo
guilo thought in any way, however
puerile, whon we remember what man
ner of woman was his coarso and cruel
consort, Isabella, of Bavaria. Surely no
man in his senses can wonder that tho
sight of her did occasionally scare the inis
becilo King, for on her head she wore
horns, and these grew widor, and, in pro
portion, higher. This formidable horn
head-dress, variously decked with jewels
and fur, was introduced into France by
tho Queon above named, and became
eventually so monstrous that the horns
growing at least two yards apart from
each other, doorways were enlarged to
admit tho breadth of them. And not
only horns, but tails were at that time
worn by ladies, and to the robes a queue,
or long train dresses, were attached
sleeves which swept the ground. In ad
dition to all this it maybe observed that
ornaments resembling animal's ears,
were sometimes appended to tho horns,
but the under garments of this amazing
costume were usually of wool or coarso
cloth, for fiuo linon was at that time so
rare in France that tho mighty Isabella
herself possessed but a scant supply of it
as a luxury.
The Bainbridge Georgian has had a
visit from Mr. J. W. Pratt, an extensive
manufacturer of Randolph, Massachu

matters in Georgia very different from
what ho supposed they were from the

professional politicians, and is much
pleased with tho South, and the hospita
ble and agreeable manners of our people.

'The riot of robbery and murder in tnis
city has recently been the subject of calm
but ominous discussion among all classes
of the people. Soon after tho assassina
tion of Mr. Rogers, the first murmurs of
popular indignation such whispers as
have, generally preceded resort to
Lynch law in tho "West and other parts
of the country wero raised by many
who bad stood aghast at the audacity and
enormity of a murder committed at day
break, in a public street, in front of tho
venerable victim's house; bnt the better
judgment .of theso avengers in embryo
prevailed, and they wisely resolved not
to move in haste. This course was ren
dered necessary by tha fact that they
had at hand no human sacrifice to atone
for the foul deed; for the murderer walk
ed tho earth as free as tho most exemp
lary citizen. It was generally hoped, that
the villain who murdered Mr. Rogers
might be arrested by the police, but this
hope has not been realized, unless, in
deed, ono of the Logans who are in cus
tody is the man.

have dono much in a quiet way to ens
courage tho movement. Nearly every
member of the force has been taunted
with his inefficiency in not securing the

From what our reporter can learn of
the movements to which wo have al

citizens of the Fifth Ward met a few
nights ago and formed themselves into a
Vigilance1 Committee; confining their
number to only well known andtrustv
citizens of high character, and taking

premature publicity. Some of the more
notorious thieves and murderers of the
West Side were mentioned aa fit objects

robbery be committed in their ward. A
similar committee was formed in the
Fifteenth Ward, but the proceedings of
both meetings wero ordered to be Kept a
profound secret. 1
These men; it is said, havoiresolred to
summarily adopt the.San Francisco Vigi

crime be committed in their respective
wards. They will then take the places
of judges in a summary jail delivery of
