The President is still waging his campaign in New York for the United States Senatorship. A gentle man fresh from that State raid to day thit there was a movement being made in the city of New York of those who advocated Mr. Arthur's nomination at Chicago to have him elected to the Senate at ail hazards, and to force him Into the Presidential nom ination four years hence. They contend that Mr. Arthur could have been elected had he been in Mr. 15! nine's pace; that ha must be the rext liepnblican nominee, and thnt the only sure ro&d to it Is through the Senate.

A Kweeplrg Itcductioa in Ttleraph ltate, C'otunieiicli; With the New Year, irpf c!al to tüe bentmci. New Yohk. Dec 31. The B. and O. Tele graph Company has made ISSt memorable in telegraphic history by the construction of the greatest number of miles cf wire ever known within a period f twelve month?. At the opening of the year it3 mileage was less than 20 000; it is notf 17,000, co ls:s than 23,000 miles having bsen etrung from January 1 to December 31. Certainly it would appear beyond all further cavil that the R. ahd O. has come to stay, and that its pcimf cenca was coincident with, its progress. The character, too, of the construction is a self-evident' Iact cf eolidity. As the majority cf the new extensions are of largs gauge, galvanized Iron wire, wiih over 4,000 mi!e3 of bard-drawn copper wire, which ia as much anadv&ncs upon tbe old-time ma terial ta ia the substitution of steel for iron railroad?. "With tuch a record for the j ear just c!oied tbe B. and O. signalizes tbe new year with such a wholesale reduction of telegraphic rstc3 as must fairly divide the honors cf the day in an interchange ot the compli ments of the Efaeon. The tumble ia the tariff Is con decidedly a general one, embrac ing til the great commercial centers within the widely extensive system ot the Baltimcre and Ohio Company.
