E. 11 C'ushiug, Houstuu, Something' about Monopolies, With tho construtioii of the Un ion Pacific railroad, was imuigora a systom ef land grabbing by thoso who aro suddenly taken with rail road enterprises, that is calculated to concentrate tho wealth and in fluence of the whole country in tho hands of railroad raon, unless the powers of the government proso cuto tho steps thoy have begun in tho annihilation of all claims which thoso pioneor spirits profess to hold upon tho coffers of tho public treas ury. Wo are not opposod to mo nopolies when tho tonn is properly applied to groat and necessary en terprises whoroby tho people may be benefited and capital at tho sumo time reap its reward from in vestment thoroin ; but wo- do op poso stoaliug, frauds and corrup tion in all the variod forma and shapes undor which thoy severally disguise themselves when bont upon public ruin in oroeting personal fortunos for thoso who prosocuto thom aud apply them to tho accomplishment of their own baso purposes. Wo would be glad to have a railroad running through every county ir, tho Union and lo know that the dividonds declarod from each were simply magnificent, but we would rather havo the wagon systom to continue thau that tho cities, towns, counties and States, through which they run, should build them for tho benefit of individuals, and tax thomselves and sucneoding gonora tions forever,with untold burdens to consummato tho financial glory of a fewmon.Nearlyalltho roads which havo been constrnclod sinco tho war throughout this whole country, has been built by what is known ns subsidy. Thoir projectors first log roll Congress and gotall the grants they can proouro and sometimes Congressmen take a little stock in consideration of thoir voto, as was tho case In tho Mobilier frauds then thoy repair to tho Stato Logis hitures and got all tho subsides they can from this source, and then for ready cash to bogin with, they inflame the people with ardent hopes, and sot the little towns and villages to bidding against each other for the purpose of becoming station points along thoso stupen dous lines of iniquity which should all bo continuod into some bottom less ocean, and thoir owners started to the terminal point. Monopoly, proporly appliod to enterprises in volving public convenience, is tho delegation of tho right to do a thing, but not to first accomplish tho object and then grant both right and it to the monopolists. When Statos give rights to build railroads, that is all thoy should give, and then thoso who reap tho exclusive privi logo of enjoying tho profits of such rights should be content to invest their own money in tho construe tion of tho works which would thus bo theirs in an honostand legitimate way. We are glad to say to our readers, that in this State, land subsidies bavo "played out." Our legislature is willing to grant a railroad charter to any company of solvont mon who may apply for ono, but it will go no farther in tho en couragement of thoso great inter ests about which railroad owners harp so constantly and loudly. We have hoard thorn proclaim them selves publio bonofactors, aud point, with tho most complacont satisfaction, to tno roaas mcy mm huiltwith the pooplo's money, to prove thoir declarations. Wo don't like this sort of piniantnropy, auu wo rejoice that our legislature has decided to build no more raiiroaus tor a few men to foaat and futtoa tinon the, t)ur!ns of, aa4 booon o indignant if a 6hippoi. who aided with his money in building it, should complain of bad manage ment in tho delivery of his freights. gx Tho now stoamor, San Jacin- to, tho pioneer of tho Liverpool and lialvoston line, arrivod at tho latter city on Thursday of lust week, bringing 221 emigrants.

From the Now York World. The Dark Side of New York, Whilo Mikdisou Avenue wua dining and Fifth Aveiiua was winiug on Chriulmus Day, while the New York of West Twenty Third Btreet wits looking at the- tircoious holiday girts It hud received, the )our of New York were doing what lhy hud been doing all tho rest of the year i suf fering. Wandering about dunk iu the uoighborhood of the Five Points, the wri ter saw ut the oorucr of Worth and Bax ter streets, Btanding under a lump iost in iu the very cnltu of wliut wns unco the most dangerous part of Now York, withiu a stone's throw ol the site of the old llrew ery, a litlle girl about five years old, cry ing with hunger and shivering with eold. She was oue of two ol.ildreu of a )oor Iialiou woman, whose little all had been used in defraying the expouses of a litlle illness, brief In duration, but quite long enough lo render her literally "without a cent." This woman andher children had passed Christmas eve huddled arouud a scanty tire in I lie slove of a bar-room in the neigh borhood, whose proprietor let her '.stay round'' the fire because she had no where to go till midnight. Then when tho place olosed for the night, the woman and her two ehildrcu slunk awny and tried to keep from freezing in the doorway of an old houso in the neighborhood, where they wero found about 3 o'clock on Chrisemns morning, by a policeman going his rounds, the mother nearly frozen still', standing upright, holding to her breast her two children. Had tho policeman bocn a few minutes later, the throe would probably havo died died on Christmas morning, of mingled cold and starvation and weari nesswithin a few rods of the wealthiest portion of the wealthiest oily on tho Amer ican continent. In Mulberry street, not far from whero the little girl was met, a little boy asked the writer for alms. On inquiry it was found that bo and his moth er had lived u live cents und oue loaf of bread since Thursday morning thirty six hours of existenoe for two beings on one loaf of bread and a five cent piecel Corruption in xiik Body Politic. Corruption in the affairs of the Govern ment seems to be spreading like the small pox in some eastern cities. Besides the Credit Mobilier abomination, the various laud grab jobs in Congress, the develop ments in New York oity, the elcotion of a United States Senator from Kansas and the live and ten thousand dollar checks in connection therewith, we have now calls for investigation in the manner of the elcotion of a United Slates Senator from Missouri, and one from Nevada, each of whom, it is alleged, owes his succoss to the distribution of large sums of money among members of the Legislature, the figure in the case of the Nevada Seuator elect reaching, it ie said, the snug amount of three hundred thousand dollars. Verily this is an era of corruption, and the searching brooms of investigating com mittees ought to make clean sweeps all round. In the case of Senator Caldwell, of Ken ans, the evidence that he purchased his seat in the United Slates Seuate by a free and unscrupulous use of money Is conclu sive. There is something revolting in coarseness with which the bribery and cor ruption were conducted. The bargaius for voles and influence were made with as litlle delioaoy and as litlle attempt at con cealment as would bo displayed by two Texas drovers haggling ovor so many head of cattle Yet the radical papers can dis cover no oflensiveness iu the transaction, and are only calculating upon the political efi'cet that would follow the expulsion of Caldwell from a body two-thirds of whose members owe their positions to the same lullueuces that were used to secure the success of this Kansas Senator. Shreve port Timet. Fatal Siiootino. On Sunday evening Inst about dark, a difficulty ocoured at Poletown in thia county, which resulted in the killing of Mr. Kd. Murray and the probably fatal wounding of Jatrfns Lidon, by two brothers named Abbllt. From the best information we can get the parties had a difficulty on Friday night previous at a party. The parties who did the shooting are still at large.' Much credit is dm our sheriff, Mr. Parker, and his deputy, Mr. 0111, for their untiring effort! to arrest the perpetrators of the deed. Courtesy. Nowhere is well-bred courtesy, er the lack ot it, more observable than in travel l ng. On I he steamboat and in the oars the quiet observer easily doteots those who are educated under refined intluenoes,or those who, without speoial cultivation, are possessed of native politeness. It is not education alono, nor wealth, nor high social position, nor costly trapping, that makes one a pleasant travelling compan ion. There must exist a kindness of feel ing toward strangers, a general recogni tion of equal rights in the oomforts and conveniences provided for the public, and a quickened discernment for the needs of others. The gentloman who spreads out his luggage on a couple of seats in the cars, and persistently reads his newspa per, determinately uuoonscious that oth ers who have paid as much as ho has are looking in vain for a scat, is as truly ill. bred as the country girl who noiselessly eats her pintof ponnute, souttering shells on seats aud floor, utterly regardless of the annoyance she gives hor (neighbors. In this democratic country we travel in publio oouveyauoes too much as if they wero our own private carriages. How of ton the eleventh and twelfth passengers in a cty omnibus, who know they have full claim to a seut, are disoomlltted by the ottlsproud garments, the immovable attitudes, and the blank faces of those who happen to have entered the stage before them I Common civility domands that a movement be made to give room until the complement, is filled out; aftarward cour tesy and generosity will often prompt to attentions wniou. justice may not require, It is surprising how much tho comfort aud pleasure of any journey, whether long or short, is enhanced by those little name, less courtesies whiou are offered Instinct ively nnd iiuotfiuiously to stt'i tigers by refined, well-bred travellers, aa! persous iu whom native tact and delicacy almost make up fur the lack of tho eduoatittg and refining inlliteuoos of good Bociety, Summer journeying in crowded boats uud oars is a test of both patience and po liteness. Thrice happy tttoy who pass nobly through it, for thoir own siike, for tho comfort of companions, and for the reputation of poor human nature m gen oral. The Clarkaville Times gets off the fol lowing j Usu or a Receipt. In a city not a then. sand uiilos from this locality, there lives a lawyer, orafiy, subtile, aud oute as a fox An Indian of tho Choctaw tribe, Riser, by name, owed him ststno money. The law yer had waited long for the tin. His pa tmnce at last gave out and he threatened tho Indian with law-suits, processes and executions, lho poor Chooluw got scar cd and finally brought Hie money to his creditor. He waited for tho lawyer to give hi in a receipt. "What aro you wailing lor" said the lawyer. "Receipt, said tho Indian. "A receipt," said theluwyor, "a roooipl what do you know about a receipt? Can you uudorsiaud the nature of a receipt? Tell tno the nature of one and I will give it to you." Tho ludian looked at hiui a moment and tlieu said: "S'nose may be medio; me go to hoben me find the guto locked ; me seo lho 'poe tic l cter ; he say, 'Ktser, what you want t may say, 'want to get in ; ho Bay, 'you good man ?' me say, 'yes;' he say, 'you pay A, that money t What me do ! I hub no receipt ; hnb to hunt all over hell to find you.' Ho got his receipt. An Elephant. If anybody wants an elephant let him by a dualino faolory. A man hud one near Millwatikto. The thing blew up, and the proprietor and foul assis tunis resolved into infinitesimal a to .us. and tho fragments of the building were scattered for half a milo around. Pualine as a u explosive is said to be safer thun nitroglycerine. The peculiar feature of it is claimed to be that it can be handled in a solid state with safety. Twenty pounds of it would knock any block of building In the country to smithereens The slightest ooncussion shoots it off. Jltia a dulicate matter to baudle. A good joke is told of a firm blasting rook:in the Mis sissippi river that bought a very litlle of it. They were afraid to bury, or explode, or move it, for fear the rascally thing would go off and send them all lo the reigons of space. They finally lowered it into tne river, where as water does not hurt it, it rests to explode at the touch of some passing vessel, or movemeut of an object under the water, and scatter deatn and destruction for a mile or two around. That dualine will make a sensation some day. A Banquet Without Win. Recently the Union Merchants' Exchange, of this city, held their annual eltotion for otli cers to serve during 1873. Upon the af ternoon of the election a banquet was giv en by the Directors of the Exchange, to which all of the ex-Presidents of the insti tution and other leading oitiiens were in vited. The banquet was ft decided suo eess, yet, will it be believed that not a drop of wine, beer or spirituous llquots of any kind was provided lor tne oocas on i There were some sound speeones maue ny several of our leading men. Many stnti. ments wore pledged in hot coffee or cold water, and so fur as we could see alt enjoy ed themselves fully as well as if they had filled themselves full of strong drinks. At all events, there was an air ot sober sense, a decent command or self, and grave re spect for others that does not prevail at publio fesBts wb ire spirituous liquors are served. We trust that the commendable example set by our merchants will be fol lowed by all other associations wnon puo lie repasts are meditated, L Louit Tern peranct Monthly, An unlettered correspondent in the in terior writes to ask "what is this Credi Mobilior the papers arc talking so much about?

Courier Journal. Buried Alive-A Horrible Story From oavounaa. The Savannah Advertiser relates the ' following : Un Tuesday ef last week clored man died (or wag supposed to have died) and great lamentation was made over his body by the relatives and friends. The oorpse was lal'l out, the liiuba composed, the eyei Closed, and the features were exceedingly natural, As is sometimes the custom, so called mournors were provided with food uou intoxicating liquor, which they plied themselves with until surfeit and drunk. Noisy tud indecorous demonstrations of grtet were made until the third day (Sat urday), when the brotbor of the suprosed eorpse became incensed at the disgraceful proceeding and determined to bury it at once. The other folks remonstrated and de clared that the body was yet warm and perhaps not dead. But he insisted as he said, bocause he would prefer to bury it than have a continuanoe of the shooking demonstration!. Accordingly his remains wero deposited temporarily, in a roooiving vault. Thursday the vault was opened, and the oollin brought out for permanent burial . ebowhere, when it was noticed that the strong sorews whioh had been tightly driven in three days previously, . wer strained ana the top of the oomn pried half open. Tremblingly, and with the most dread ful anticipations, the box was opened, and horrible, most horrible to relate the body was round to be turned and twistod over, tho face downward, one hand olutohing tho liuir or the head, Uie olhor reaching out, with the nails driven Into theiwood: the teeth olutched, the eyes glazed and distended, and even tho toot giving evi dence of having boon used in the last . hopeless and frightful effort to escape suf focation. These are the facts as narrated. The name of the victim was Andrew Dow. The plea of insanity in criminal oases it likely lo fare bad iu Illinois. It does not matter much to the ortintnal, however, as at the present day, to use a hamely phrase, the lawyers know many tricks that are worth two of that. Insanity may serve at. occasion, but it is not the reliauoe it was in olden tiinos. ; Illinois is, therefore, ' somewhat late in doallng with the subjeot. but hor proposed law is an excellent one.. If a jury acquiis a man of murder as in sane, he is certainly a sufficiently danger, ous tuuatio to beplaoed in safekeeping., , A bill now belore the Leglslatuee or Illi nois provides that whenever an Indicted -person is found not guilty by reason of his temporary insauity the court shall Bend him to a luuatio asylum for a term ... of years proportionate lo his crime. It is impossible to form arty correct idea ' as to the numbor of oattle that hare died ' west of the Colorado during tbo present ' winter, but we have recently eouversed witli persons from tho several surround- -' ingcouuties who estimate the loss at fully, oue third of the entire Hook, possibly . more, li the thousands of Hides already taken from carcasses on tne prairies to say uothing of many more thousands that have escaped the notios of the "skinners," and which have beon lost to the leather . trade be any criterion, then the above estimate may be regarded as about oorreot. The sovore freeze or last Tuesday will without doubt increase the loss very oon- ; 8iderably. Qon. Inq. . , The Washington eorrespsndent of the BaltimoreSun says: . . -' "There has been in operation here for sevoral years an association of ladies oon- neoted with the rrolostant Eptsoopal Churoh called the Sisterhood of St. Joltu. It is composed of three grades sisters, ' probationers and associate sisters and ' the community now oonsists of three sis-' tors who visit in the hospital oonneoted . , with St. John's Churoh in this oity, and , who have taken solemn vows, one prob.s. tioner who aspires to be a siBler, and ' twenty-four associates who live in the , world, and yet devote a portion of each day, undor the direotion of the other sis. , tern, to the benevolent work of the order. The sisterhood is under the direotion of ' 1 Rev. J. Vaughn Lewis, pastor of St. John's Church." The Louisville Ledger says "Indiana s Is convulsed from renter to oiroumstance. A great calamity has fallen upon Iloojler- ' dom. Morton howls likes grizzly bear with his foot In a trap and his nose in ft , bee tree. The darkies, from the Pocket to' the shore of Lake Miohigan, are cawing like so many crows. A blaok mm by the name of Brown married a white woman, and an Indianapolis judge has sent the happy African to I he penitentiary under the old municipal blaok laws of the State." i ...... , ; Os:r.
