Swann, was sunk on the Bth instant off Red House Cove near Fort Washington. The vessel had taken a load of oysters to Washington and was returning in tpw with Capt. Swann’s stock of Winter goods, valued at SI,OOO. When off lied House Cove the tugs stuck in the ice, and the ice boat in attempting to open the way came close to the Onward and jammed the ice between the tug and the Schooner, crush ing in the port side of the last named craft. The captain and crew were saved, but with the exception of three barrels of coal oil, which broke from their lashing to the deck, the whole cargo is a total loss. SI. Inito't Ileum, (From our Regular Corre*pondent. ] Several cases of pneumonia are reported and one death, that of a colored man, oc curred recently. The roads are almost impassable in some places. Our merchants judging from the number of boxes, barrels, etc., exposed to the eye, have amply prepared themselves tor Christ mas. Thieves are laisy again. Several modern Achans entered the meat-house of Leff Langley, a worthy colored man, of our vil lage, and took several large pieces of pork, including all the spare-ribs, a few nights ago.

Editors: —Having read in your last issue the weights of large porkers, I will now give you an account of Jumbo Hog, two years old in September. This ‘pig’ weighed 540 lbs. and of this 100 lbs was leaf fat. Also, eight March pigs aver aging 218 His. I think this entitles the 7th district to the championship.

A Proper Movement, At a meeting of our Town Commission ers, held on Friday last, it was considered necessary to set forth and transmit to the Postofflce Department the following facts and suggestions looking towards the im provement of our mail facilities. The pa per was enclosed to Hon. Barnes Compton who, we are sure, will make the proper ef fort to have the evils complained of correc ted; "Representing in a measure the rights and interests of the citizens of this town, nd believing from Vnost reliable informa tion that said rights and interests are suffer ing and grossly neglected by the non-de liarture and arrival of our daily mails, viz., caving this place after schedule time and arriving at Mechanicsville too-late for con nection with the out-going train, causing a delay of twenty-four hours; and believing that this state of affairs has existed for some time and will continue to a greater of less degree during the coming Winter; and whereas, we are also informed on good au tuority that irregularities of a similar char acter on other routes in this county exist, w* therefore respectfully ask that you will give this matter your prompt attention. And we further ask that our county post masters will in all cases (as is their duty report promptly all failures of arrival and departure at the proper schedule time; also any unreasonable delays or other violations of the postal laws pertaining to the safe keeping and prompt delivery of our mails. That Leonardlown being the county seat where most of the legal and office business of the county is transacted, we think it is due that our mails should arrive as early as practicable. We, therefore, believe by fix ing the hour of departure from Mechanics vilje to this place at 1 o'clock, F. M., (now 2o'clock,P. M.Jonrniails wonld reach here by or not later than 6 o’clock, F.

What in going on in Society — T/u: Theatre* The Joibor World — VoUlir * — The Ap proaching Holiday*, cfcc. The great mass of people of New York must be amused uml the social problem is how to do it. Not long since it was the fashionable thing to be received by Stan ley, the African explorer. This famous man received like a king in Uie prim ely Fifth Avenue home of a Wall Street mil lionaire. Last week it was Munkacsy, the Hungarian painter, whose picture, “Christ before Pilate,” on exhibition in 23rd street, has created such favorable comment as to make the artist famous, and it is now the “proper caper” to pay a half dollar and view the painting. The work is really meritorious and the only thing of the kind, I believe, that has ever succeeded in draw ing an audience in this city at a price of admission. But the lions arc gone, and enough has been done in the gay world du ring the week to satisfy the most exacting debutant and to exorcise the demon of en nui from the breasts of mothers and ma trons. Two balls, a Mendelssohn glee con cert, teas and receptions, three Opera nights and a matinee form the record, while sand wiched in among them was an undertak ing for charity’s sake, which took place at the Assembly on Thursday night. It was a pretty affair, prettier than a Kurues, by rPMfth tTMhe air of its refinement and dain ty appearance of the stalls and ladies who presided overthem. Yourciirrespondent was pleased with nil but one thing. Ho does confess to a dislike in seeing our young girls disguised as Swedes, Swiss and Hol landers, in short petticoats and grotesque head-gear exchanging rose buds for bank notes and engaging in national dances with a mixed crowd; but it is for sweat charity’s sake and “English, you know.” The distinguishing feature of the Junior Patriarch’s Ball, which took place at Del monico’s on Thursday night, was the fresh ness of the new, beautifully decorated dan cing hall and the dainty white gowns of theyoung girls who danced there lor the first time. Dowagers were not numerous, but those that were there were resplendent with jewels, and although Mis. John Astor,Mrs. Parran Stevens and Mrs. Win. Astor were all missed from Duchesses’ How, yet the glitter of precious stones was not feeble nor occasional. The costumes were superb— satins literally sown with pearls, tulles that glittered with silver and gold—a blending of colors and a perfection of style and fit not often to be seen outside of Paris. The theatres are all good for the coming week. R. B. Mantel opens at Fifth Ave nue Theatre on Monday night in an entire ly new play, “Tangled Lives.” Mr. Mantel’s merits as an actor are too well known and he is too great a favorite to predict anything hut a success. His rendition of “Loris” as Fanny Davenport's support in Pardon's “Pidora" was a masterly and scholarly pro duction, and has given him u reputation as one of our brightest stars. Mrs. Langtry—“The Jersey Lily”—is drawing crowded houses (it Kfb'lu's. this week. Mrs. Langtry has wonderfully im proved since her last tour and as an actress of beauty and ability in the legitimate dra ma is excelled by none. “Jim, the Rus sian,” is doing an immense business at the Madison Square. It has already run 150 nights at that theatre ami is likely to hold the boards w T ay into the coming season. But lor real solid fun and a genuine N. Y. char acter one has to see Ellwood Iloragan in the “O’Reagans” at the Park. He will be remembered as Horagan, of Iloragan & Hart, "Bards of Tora” fame. The Lyceum, Wallack’s, Daly’s and the Union Square are all doing good, with Joe Jefferson at the Star in the never-failing “Rip" and “LinJ in Five Shillings” one cannot help being satisfied in the way of amusement here. All ig quiet in the labor world just now. Henry George is out of the city addressing meetings in the New England States ami is receiving ovations that would tickle the fancy of our ablest leaders. The Labor party has assumed enormous proportions here in the last few months and seems to ef fect Church ami State alike. I mean In the case of Rev. Father McGlynif, the pastor of St. Stephen’s church in this city. He lias been suspended from his church by Arch bishop Corrigan and summoned to Home by the Pope to answer charges preferred against him in conduct unbecoming a priest. Dr. McGlynn is a powerful man in his par ish, a remarkable debater and was a weal thy man when he received the pastorate of St. Stephen’s. By his individual efforts he has built up a mighty congregation there. It is a well known fact that his kindness and generosity to the needy has made him a poor man. Those unfortunates, together with the entire labor clement of this city, now stand shoulder to shoulder and protest against this proceeding; they remember with some bitterness that when the Dr. addres sed a meeting at Chiekeriug Hall two years ago, in the interest of the Democratic par ty, the church did not theu raise a question of conduct unbecoming a priest, but praised him for his zeal. It seems the ignominious defeat of Roose velt, the republican candidate for Mayor, has dampened what little ardor remain ed in the breasts of the adherents of : the O. O. P,, so much so indeed, after re i pcated calls of the Presidents of the several | clubs, they cannot bring together enough to transact the necessary business. Eroin positive information that only seven an swered the calls last week. McQuade, the “boodle Alderman,” has i been convicted. The jury, after delibera ting 15 minutes, brought in a verdict of guilty. He will be remanded for sentence to-day. Jake next. As the Holidays approach the big stores put on a gayer air, and the groat thorough fares of Broadway, Grand and’ 14lh streets, lith avenue and 23rd street arc resplendent with Xmas goods. The crowds of mag | nificently attired ladies and gentlemen that tbroog Sidlcy’s, Macey’s, Aultman's, O’Neil’s stores.and Arnold, Constable & I Co. are enormous.

Mr. J. Biscoe Bunting, ofChaptico, has located in Calvert county, hung up his shingle ami published his professional card. Mr. Bunting is a graduate of the Maryland Law School and a gentleman of much promise. We wish him success. A St. Inigo’s friend writes us that Mr. Henry Wible, of that district, has killed two fifteen-months-old “jocks” which net ted 703 pounds, one tipping the beam at 385. For an answer to the query which ho propounds we refer him to this week’s paper. Sunday evening, a valuable marc belong ing to Mr. Luke Knott, of tins district, was severely and possibly fatally injured. The animal trod upon a tobacco stick, one end of which How up and struck her in the lower part of the stomach penetrating to the depth of four or five inches. The following are the reports of heavy porkers which have reached us since out last issue: Judge Dan’l. J. Payne killed 3 with an average weight of 810; French V. Greenwell, 1 weighing 430; James Russell, 8, netting 1000 lbs., the oldest (17 mos) and heaviest weighing 445. Mr. B. 11. Swann, of the 7th district, Is, however, the champion, his pig weighing 540 lbs. CHHINT.MAN IN IIEttR. Christmas is near at hand, bearing in its j coming the gladsome tidings of “peace on earth, good will toward men.” It Is the i season of rejoicing, of heartfelt thankful ness for the blessings of the past and of hopeful anticipations of the future, an era of good will most appropriately celebrated by kindly presents to kindred and friends, large or small as the means of the donor will permit. The most perplexing ques tion is, what to buy and where to buy it ? Our merchants are smiling and cheerful in anticipation of the good limes a-coming. All are well-stocked and anxious to sell— | those who advertise, of course, selling , cheapest. Mns. L. A. Jokes has an array of fine millinery and of useftil Christmas presents, Mid what is more ap propriate at any season than a useful gift?

CIIAHI-OTTK Hau,, Dec. 19, 18m(5. Messrs. Editors • —The; following problem seisms to bo occupying tlio attention of some of our business men, and as various solutions have been suggested, all of which appear to me unwarrantable sequences from the known premises, I take this means of provoking discussion on the mooted question : “A wishes to borrow from B $3,500 for five years at 8 per cent. 'The mortgage is executed bearing interest at (1 per rent. What bonus must B deduet, which added to ins interest will make 8 per cent, on ids investment ?” Bince the mortgage is SB,BOO and interest at 0 per cent., the interest for 5 years, of j course, is $750. Tills added to the face the mortgage makes $0,250. Now, this must cover the money loaned and interest on same at 8 per cent. The problem re solves itself into finding what sum of money on interest at 8 per cent, will, in five years, amount to $0,850, One dollar in this time amounts $1.40; hence, the sum which will amount to $0,350 will be a sum obtained by dividing $0,350 by $1.40, which will bo $3,031.43. $2800—3381.43 $178.58, the bonus. Proof, $178.58 [bonus] plus $750 [interest] $938.58, income from money loaned for five (5) years. It is easily seen that this is 8 per cent, interest on the amount loaned [53,031.43], and this was what we desired, It is interesting in this connection to trace tlie same result by Algebra. Let x equal tlie sum loaned ; then, 3,500 —x bo nus. interest on face of mortgage at 0 ; per cent, for five (5) years amounts to $750. Now, the bonus + the interest 8 per cent, on sum loaned. Then, 8x 3,500 —x i 750 —x 6. 100 Transposing, collecting and dividing, we obtain, x 3,021.43, the amount loaned, a result corresponding in all respects with the former one. All teachers of Mathematics deplore the impractical spirit which governs the com pilers of our text books on Algebra. That Algebraic study, per , is of incalculable. value in training a human miiul i< n fact! unquestioned among educators. Among the laity this is not so evident. The pro- ; judiee with which they view it, in a meas ure, arises from their failure to recognize its practical feature, and this failure is due to the subject matter of the general Algebra, such as the “Dog, Horse. Problem," the “Digit Problems," the "Clock Problem," et al. Now, 1 hold that an Algebra can be compiled with sufficient combination of thought to yield any desired mental, gym nastic exercise from the practical affairs of life. Algebra is but a full-grown Arithme tic. The human mind in developing passes from die particular to the general and on tins latter vantage ground Alegbra is built. It should boa structure of a practical and substantial nature, and not one built of mental conceits and fanciful combinations, i hope that you will pardon me, Messrs, Editors, for tins digression and lind my ex cuse in the zeal I entertain for the cause.
