. We condense thi' follow ing f i om
the New Yoik Imlepnmhnt of Aug.
llilli, on the Geneva nwaidc on the
Al.ib una claims. It will, no doubt,
be inteiestinp;, as sonic of our citi
y.i.iis are claimants under this award:
CongiobS pushed an Act in June
this year which settles that the 1111
denvi iters had 110 claims and that
the money .should be distributed to
the ship owners, the owners of
cargoes, the otlleers and seamen that
were on the captmed vessels, and
that lhi same class of persons of
any loud who paid picmUuns to in
sine their propcity against lisk of
capture by the Confederate ci niseis
are the proper and lawful iceipienta
of that award.
The- balance yet to be distributed
under the awatd, accumulated inter
est amounts to about SI 1,000,000.
The owner of a vessel or cat go or
the insuier against var risk can
(lining the ensuing two years pi ove
his claim and get what the Comt
bays lie is legally entitled to.

" We do not hold otiiselvcs responsible
fur the opinions epicsscd by our cor
Mk. Kuitou: I found in your
well-read little paper, on the Mth,
unaiticlcin which you complain of
the high pi ico of beef. I llhil some
tilings in it which aie wrong. First,
tvc do not cliaige (ifteen cents a
pound all lound, but only for the
choice cuts: moie than half a bul
lock is sold at ten cents and under.
Taking one bullock it stands hs in
seven and a lia.lf to eight cents a
pound all lound. We get (ifteen
cents a pound for less than a quarter
of it, twelve and a half cents a
pound for a qtiuiter of it (the round
and boiling beef,) and ten cents a
pound for the 1 est, except in large
coiiliauts for which we get seven
cents a pound. In addition to this
the hide and inside of the bullock is
worth live dollars, and not ten dol
lars as you state. Out of this we
have to pay for labor, for lioises and
feed, for cait and driver, (some
times the cart will have to be sent
but of the road to deliver ten cents
worth of meat,) and for tho loss on
stock (in two weeks I lost 1 bullock
and 0 slieep,) and for'loss on meat
not sold or tetunied. Then, look at
the tioublo c have: every morning
1 am at wotk from one to half-past
two, while other people are sleeping.
Suppose some morning I. wasn't to
got up at tho usual hour, but slept
an hour or two later, wheio would
you be then? You would have 110
breakfast till seven or eight o'clock,
waiting for the meat to conic. Then
again everybody, 'whether they buy
five cents or flvedollats worth, wants
it bent round to their house, and if
anything is not as good as they want
they send it right back and leave it
011 my hands. Now, Mr. Editor, if
you think tliuie is so much money in
butclieiing, why, I ask you, did the
Family, the Coninieiclal, and the
City Maikets shut up? I don't think,
taking it all lound, that we charge
too high a pike for beef, and if we
had to employ white labor we would
have lochaige twenty cents a pound.

" Bless me, this is funny,
Riding on a Rail!"
I recollect reading many years ago
in tho papois, a shing of verses in
which some one desciibed his sen
sations on aiding in a railroad car
for the first lime, and the ending of
each vol so was in the abovj woids.
If not exactly " funny," it was cei
tamly a lemaikablc sensation to llud
myself the oilier day with ling along
after the iion Iioikc, f 10111 Maliukona
to Unlaw a, on the Kohula Rail load.
What, I thought, would bo the
cogitations of the ghost of Kanielia
nu'ha the Conqueicr, if, peiinittcd
to lovisit these glimpses of the moon
once so familiar to him, he should
see the smoking train, snake-like,
winding along thoshoic, around and
tluough hillt. and in and out of deep
gulches, eer and anon making the
echoes with a hoaisc blast or shrill
sci cam of the steam whistle !
Mr. Wilder ceitaiuly deserves all
the praise and fame that lie gets for
the accomplishment of this great
woik great for Koliala and great
for the Hawaiian Islamls. Any one
who has e or iu former days mado
the journey over this lough mute
either on hoise-back or on a wagon,
will in some dcgieo appieciate the
(lilllculties to be overcome iu hying
a lailway tiack; but tho tiip must
be taken iu the cars iu daylight :n
older to get an inkling of the amount
and kimlof viork that has been
occoniplislied here, and tho pluck
and eneigy that were lcquisitc to
oveicomo natural obstacles. But
the worst of these aie now over.

The North Gcrmnn Lloyd's

for New Yoik from Bremen, and had
on board 18 cabin passengers and
000 steei nge. Tho weather was
calm and no lives were lost. It is
believed that the vessel will not bo
got off, but the cargo, although
damaged, will be saved. She is of
3,114 tons Inn then, and was built
in Gieenock, 1872. The Hansn, now

Exliactfiom account of battle of
Ksssassin, Aug. 25th:
For the sake of fairness It should
bo mentioned that those who took
pait in this gallant nehievment work
ed for ncaily twenty -four hours on
empty stomachs, but never di earned
of grumbling. The horses have
been without food the same lngth
of time. The Hritish cavalry chaig
ed straight at the guns, sabering the
guiiueis as thoy passed, and cutting
down the Hying infantry beyond
them. A scene of wild "confusion
eiisiied, some of tho guns still filing
and the bodies of infantry keeping
up a fusilado, Our infantry at Kas
sassin had a hot time. Hundreds
of shells burst in the confined space.
The shelter of the trenches afforded
but insufficient protection. The
Egyptians came on with great biav
cry, and iirspite of the heavy fire of
our men weic rapidly gaining giound
and would soon have 1 ushed upon
our inticnchiuents when tho roar of
our guns on their left, followed by
the lush f our cavalry, proved too
much tor them, and from that mo
ment they thought only of lliglit.
About ten o'clock the cavalry came
in in high spii its over their brilliant
achievement. Many iore missing
111 me uaiKiiess, out llioy no doubt
will turn up in the 11101 ning. Upon
the return fiom puiBUit they weie
unablo to find the guns over which
they chatged, but these will doubt
less bo discoveiad at sunrise.
