HEW OF STEAM COLLIERS.
g Trial Trip f the Httles;ake.
The Pennsylvania, New York, and New Kngland
Mtam NaviaMoa Company ha?e Buccesntully in
Miirurated a nev movement In the coal-oarrytn
trade which promises to lead to results of the first
importance. The facilities Tor the transportation of
coal to various points on the seaboard have for a
ion time been notoriously Inadequate, and the eg.
tabllshment of a new line of fast and reliable colliers
In an ernt that will be appreciated by onr coal-shlp-ning
mcrctianis, as well as by the Kastern manufac
turers and others who have to depend upon the
Pennsylvania mines for their supply of el.
The Tproducttoa and consumption of coal In the
United States during WUTni lJlrIlm
Pennsylvania and Maryland alone, was over 10,000,.
tons ana ih increasing at the rate of about fifteen
ITr centrMnum (or.Tn round numbers, 8,500,000
ms) andwe must therefore look with favor to a
vstefn which proposes to carry this tonnage direct
to tiie manufacturer and consumer in a reliable
nianner. or, at least, that portion of it which requires
transportation by sea; and experience lias taught
that railroads cannot successfully compete with
water transportation in carrying coal and iron. We
must, therefore, avail ourselves of the most desirable
IniMieof transit on the great maritime highway, and
call to our aid the power or steam.
It has been the experience of many large manu
facturers that they must necessarily contract for
their coal early In the season to enable them to get
tt forward, owing to the Inadequate transportation,
frequently obligfng the manufacturer to buy at a
time when the price for coal wan high; and again,
when the price did decline, freights would be
largely advanced, from no upparent reason save ttie
oft-repeated one, scarcity of vessels, or else none of
proper draft of water; and shippers of coal from the
mines to Port Klchmond on the Delaware, as tvcll as
all other shipping points, have been put to great In
convenience on account of the uncertainty In pro
curing vessels for the Hast, frequently obliging them
to withhold tneir shipments, or suspend, tor a time,
operation?. To avoid, in a measure, some of these
contingencies, the manufacturers have been obliged
to keep large stocks of fuel on hand, Involving loss
of Interest on capital so locked up.
The coal, where lurge quantities are used. Is pur
chased early in the season, ut a fixed contract price,
free on imurd at the point of shipment. Tims far the
manufacturers are safe : but now comes the question
of marine transportation. No one schooner, or live
schooners, can or will : gree to transport the coal at
a stated time, and at u fair fixed rate of freight;
neither will any shipping house undertake the trans
portation except ut uu enormous charge for freight,
to cover the risks.
Thus the buyer is left at their mercy, and must
take his coal whenever he can get it, and at almost
any rate of freight he may choose to charge, and
accumulate a stock of coal.which, in many instances,
nroves an Inconvenience; whereas under the new
system he can be supplied at any time when it suits
Ills convenience 10 nuj, ami cuu eoiuruui lur me
delivery of his coal and iron at his mill (if on the
line of 'railroad) at a regular ami uniform rate, as
clung as navigation remains open.
The iron screw steamers currying uu1 iiuuui en ions
of coal can be bulit and equipped at a compara
tively small cost, and these vessels can make four
trips to one of the schooners, on an average. A fleet
of thirty of these iron steamers, of from live hundred
to one thousand tons capacity each, with iron barges
as auxiliaries, will be immediately put upon the line,
built in the most substantial and economical man
ner the entire hold devoted to coal, and motive
liower sufficiently stronir to tow the barges to the
ound ports, with iieciuiimodutloiis on deck for only
olllcers and crew, mid solely Intended for freighting
iron and coal, without regard to return freights to
8tcam at an average speed of from ten to eleven
know per hour, ami with a draft of water six and a
half to nine and a hulf feet ; and It Is confidently ex
pected that a cheap and unilorni system ol paying
freights can be maintained, - remunerative and
prolltuMe to all concerned.
The economical manner in which they can be
coaled is also an Important feature to be taken into
consideration. The furnaces will b constructed to
burn pea or small coal, which can be purchased at
the shipping-ports at very small first cost.
These vessels will carry their cargoes under locked
hatches; and the coinpsny will be responsible for all
the coal put on board, the dangers of the seas only
Owing to the peculiarity of their construction, the
screw steamers arc enabled to transport cargoes of
fiOO to 600 tons Into harbors which can only admit
schooners carrying 160 to Ko tons, and then not
always to be obtained when wanted. The new line
of steam colliers will transport coal cheaply, quickly,
and elllciently, ami will enable consumers to cal
culate always on having their coal delivered exactly
on time under all circumstances.
The Iron screw steamer Rattlesnake, which made a
trial trip on Saturday, is u specimen vessel of the new
line of colliers, ami her performances were in every
way satisfactory to tine large company of gentle
men who were invited by Messrs. V. D. Crane Co.,
the projectors, to inaugurate the new enterprise.
The Rattlesnake was imilt by Messrs. Keauey, Son &
Archbold, at Chester, and her const ruction was
superintended by Captain Alexander Shaw, an ex
perienced ottlcerj who will also give his attention to
the other vessels of the line.
Her dimensions are 160 feet In length, nearly 29
feet In breadth, 12 feet in depth from baseline;
area, 277 square feet, midship section ; displacement,
light, 816, and laden, lft tons ; her draft is only 11
feet; her engine with 84-inch cylinder; her stroke 28
Inches; one tubular boiler; urea of grate, 50 square
feet; diameter of screw, 9 feet; pitch, 1 feet; at
sea, and fully laden, she will make so revolutions per
minute: pressure of steam, 35 pounds; average
speed, fully laden, 9 knots per hour ; weight of Iron
in hull, 163-89 tons; surface of hull. 6506 square feet;
average weight per square foot of hull. f2!. pounds;
weight of machinery, carpenter-work, and outfit,
161 tons. She has 7 iron kelsons, and water-bottom
over them. Her cargo will be distributed in three
compartments, viz., tons aft, 200 tons midships,
and 176 tons forward. Her coal bunkers will carry
no tons. She will be commanded by Captain V. li.
Such an iron screw-steamer as the Rattlesnake,
tarrying 600 tons of coal, can be built and equipped
for a sum considerably under Joii.ooO. A schooner
of 600 tons would coot 40,ouo. The screw-steamer,
however, can make four trips to the wooden
schooner's one. Say that a schooner carries a cargo
of 250 tons of coal at tiW per tos, and averages
twenty-two days for each trip, her clear earnings
will be about 1 192, her performance at the rate of
1)4 trips per month, ami her average monthly earn
ings will be (261. The iron screw collier will carry
600 tons per voyage, at $1-70 per ton, will make four
voyages, have a clear gain of $2210 per month, aud
carry In that time eight times the quantity or cool
borne by the schooner.
The construction of the vessel herself, her move
ments through the water, the ease with which she
can be manoeuvred, and other good qualities, ejceited
ranch favorable comment from those who were best
able to Judge on Saturday, and Mr. V. 1). Crane, who
was In attendance, and to whom the various guests
are indebted for many courteHles, found his highest
expectations more than gratllled.
The Reading Railroad Company, fully appreciating
the advantages of this enterprise, have given it their
hearty co-operation and support. Indeed, the Influ
ence of the new line of steamers on the coal trade of
Philadelphia can scarcely be estimated, and they can
scarcely fall to realize the most suugulue expecta
tions of the projectors.
The Rattlesnake has been chartered by Lewis
Audenreld A Co., who loaded the first coal schooner
at Port Richmond, and site will sail next Wednesday
with a full cargo of coal.
Dirty Streets. The special policemen who have
leeu detailed to inspect the streets throughout the
city, this morning reported the following thorough
fares as being in a filthy condition, and needing the
broom and scraper immediately. : Essex street,
Cadwalader street, Montgomery avenue, Marseilles
Btreet, between Broad and Fifteenth ; a small street
lielow Master, between Ninth and Tenth; Alder
street, north of Master; American street, north and
south of Columbia avenue; Prospect allev, between
Ninth and Tenth, and Mervine street, above Thomp
Hon. The policemen also cull attention to the con
dition of a number of choked Inlets, and to the'Ulthv
state of the gutters over which the iron coveriniM
have been placed by passenger railway companies.
Inciting to Riot Henry Cornell, David Barclay
and Albert Gaw have been held by Alderman Carl
penter for inciting to riot, on the wharf above Wal
nut street, last evening. John G. Smith, the pro-
Erietor of a tavern in that locullty, testified on the
earing that this crowd were engaged in battering
ilown his door, when he requested them to desist.
They then threatened him, aud he was compelled to

The nnrln Tuttle I tuft Float In the Delaware.
on the 4th day of ,lnne, l67, more than two years
Since, a tiny raft, named the Nonpareil, worked Its
way out of New York harbor to the broad ocean be
yond, and, hoisting sail, dilfled away towards Ea
rope. The people of Southampton, England, were
astonished on the 25th of the following month to see
a novel crart nearlng their wharves upon the tide. It
was the Nonpareil, and from that day she was
famous. When Captain John Mlckcs, her builder,
stepped upon her for the long voyage, many deemed
him more than bold, and expected to hear or see
nothing again of either him or his raft. The success
of the enterprise, however, proved that he well
knew the capacity of his tiny vessel, and demon
strated that even the raging deep might be dared
almost npon a plank. The Nonpareil now lies at
Smith's Island, opposite Chesnnt street wharf. She
is made of three air-tight cylinders 2a feet in length
and 20 Inches diameter. The cylinder are made of
gutta percha, encased In heavy duck covers, and
connected by means of heavy duck flanges, which
form a deck surface iy, leet wide. On the top ami
across thtse cylinders arc placed a series of thwarts
or planks, which keep the cylinders apart, and also
afford seats for passengers. An air-valve is attached
to each cylinder, and in elRht mlnhtes the rart can
be put in readiness for service. The raft, it Is said,
lias a buoTs nt capacity of ln,oH) pounds, and a deck
surface of 204 square feet, she Is now rigged aud
equipped as she was at the time of making her cele
brated voyage the same water casks, beds, binnacle
and tackling being on board. Captain Mlckcs, who
is with the boat at Smith's Island, says that during
his voyage across the ocean, the bcddiiig, which was
elevated about two feet above the deck, was never
wet. He also states that the raft cannot beswamped
or capsized by surf or sea.
A Pnlr of llelligrreut Female Make the Fur
At an early hour In the morning, a few days ago,
on North Second street, In the vicinity of Callow
hill, an amusing occurrence, In the shape of a melee
among the hucksters of the said street, took place.
The main participants two brawny females of the
truck-vending vocation, both of rather Irascible
temperament becoming Incensed at what each
thought an Infringement or the other upon her espe
cial rights, In order to solve the question n to who
was to have the mastery, engaged lu a hand-to-hand
For the space of some moments, the contest waxed
warm, the two being well matched. At length,
however, In desperation, one of the combatants, the
smaller of the two, endeavored by a seientllle move
ment to lay hold of the other by her long, unkempt
hair. The attempt proved a failure, f sr that other,
a native of "Ould Ireland," skilled from many pre
vious engagements of the kind, succeeded well In
keeping the perilled locks out of reach, and for a
while had the best of her opponent. Presently the
smaller, who had appeared almost vanquished, re
gaining her self-possession, dashed boldly In, and the
warfare again grew hot. Strawberries, cabbages,
nnd potatoes, all were trampled In the dust ; baskets,
barrels, and buckets rolled around promiscuously.
ai lengin, just wnen our pugilists were
preparing for the fourth round, one of the
most corpulent of the Second street storekeepers
proceeded to the scene of conflict and Interfered.
With great exertions he succeeded in partially pro
ducing a cessation of hostilities, when a brace of
policemen made their appearance and ordered the

Suggestions for tin Jloriiflrntlon nnd Improve
Some time since, as has not been forgotten, the
Congressional Committee of Ways and Means met iu
this city for the purpose of Investigating the work
ing of the various manufactories iu our midst, ami
collecting from this source, as well as from others,
such information as might prove valuable in the
proposed revision of the tarill'. Before the sittings
of the committee were closed, the "Industrial
League" was requested to draft such a schedule of
taritr rates, to be accompanied by documents as
proof of its feasibility, as could bo approved by the
dillcrcnt industries represented by the League, and
to present the same to the committee for considera
tion: Tho oPRoers of the League wish to respond to this Invl
tatinn by submitting to the coinm.ttoe, upon their return
to Philadelphia in August or September, a schedule
worked up with nch care nnd thoroughness, so carefully
adjusted to the wanis of both producer and consumer, ana
wilhul so moderate and practical, as to challenge the
favorablo attention of the committee and to uiuke pro
bable t lie adopt ion of its provisions.
All persons or corporations belonging to trftde associa
tions represented in the Industrial Loaguo are, therefore,
invited to forward their suggestions concerning tariff
modifications to the secretaries of their respective bodies
lor transmission to the League.
It is desirable that tho taritf schedule prepared by the
Industrial league in lsiH should ho adhered in as far as
puf..i.i. Ki-4.tiua.iu arguments intended to elucidate
any special point must be concise and clear in order to
insure attention on the part of the committee.

Fire Last Nioiit A Hose Carriaoe Thrown
Into the Schuylkill. About 10 o'clock last night
the carpenter shop of Stanton ft McGarvey, situ
ated in the middle of a lumber yard, in the rear of
Twenty-third und Market streets, was totally de
stroyed by fire. The building contained a lurge
amount of tools, valuable fixtures, and work in a
finished and unfinished state, all of which was con
sumed. The loss Is about f Mioo, on whicti there is an
Insurance of 1400 in the Aitna Insurance Company.
The lire was the work of an Incendiary, and was
evidently by a crowd of loafers who infest thst lo
cality. It seems that the firm has had considerable
trouble with these fellows of late, and have been
compelled to eject some of them from the place.
This same crowd has had some ditllculty with the
West Philadelphia Hose Company, against whom
threats have been made. The rain storm
of last night gave a splendid
opportunity for these villains to carry out their
design. They at first broke the fire-alarm box at
the corner f Twenty-third and Market streets, In
order to prevent an alarm being given over the
wires, and to prevent too many llreiuen getting on
the ground und interfering with their preconcerted
plan of attacking the West Philadelphia Hose, which
Is only a few blocks distant. The building was then
touched oil, and the West Philadelphia Hose ami
the Philadelphia Engine arrived on the ground at
about the suine time. A portion of the hose was ran
off the carriage, and the firemen proceeded to run
a line from the Philadelphia steamer. During their
absence the villains manned the rope of the car
riage and ran her down along the wharves to San
som street, where it was run overboard. The car
riage was recovered at a late hour by the police
of the Fifteenth ward, under Lieutenant Campbell.

ENTHUSIASM of the patriots.
The following Is an extract from a private
letter l eceivcd by a gentlemen iu this city, and
dnted Havana, Juno 12:
"You have no Idea of the enthusiasm which
Is noticed among the Cubans with refercuco to
the opinion emitted by the North American
press. The poor OorriowK are apparently
united upon one point, and that is to get to
gether all tho money they can and sail away
afterward. Yes, mauy of thom are getting up
nil their means, and it would seem incredible
were I to tell you of tho great numbers of
J'eniuftularrs that have left, and who are now
preparing to leave for their country. The mobi
lized troops In Sngua la Chica have raised the
devil, as well whites as blacks. They turned
against the Government; there .was a big row,
but the disaffected, it is said, remained masters
of the situation."
CUBA LOST TO SPAIN.
Espinar, the Governor-General, attempts by
every means to make himself popular, and some
times is met clothed in volunteer garb, without
adjutant, promenading In the Purso de Taeou.
It tickles me each time that I look upon his
lordship, but, knowing his thoughts as I do, I
force myself to contemplate calmly the farce.
Espinnr lias himself often said aloud, and In dif
ferent places, that Cuba was lost to Spain, and
lias counselled all his friends who could to leave,
inasmuch as one day, when least expected, the
river of discontent would flow over Its banks aud
the current would sweep all before It..
THE FIGHT AT RIO BLANCO.
The rebel account of the fight at Rio Blanco
lias been confirmed by several Spanish olllcers,
who confess that their roar guard, consisting of
107 men nnd seven olllcers, was entirely cut off
and captured, together with one cannon. The
olllcers sent to Las Tunas for their clothing,
which was sent to them. So it seems the insur
gents do not shoot down their prisoners in cold
blood, as the Spaniards frequently have done.
THE PERIT EXPEDITION.
On the 10th tilt., a day after the engagement
near the Bay ot Aipe, a ueruian, giving ills
name as John Jnger, presented himself or was
taken by the Spanish gunboat Africio. He stated
that he embarked on the steamer Perit, Captain
Fletcher; that he sailed from New York on the
7th ult. with thirty-nine Americans, twenty-niue
Germans, and one hundred Cubans. Her cargo
onnsiKtcd rf Iwn thousand rifles. rd'ht;cil cau
non, and other articles of war, with provisions.
Tlie steamer arrived at Nipe on the 14th, and,
after landing her cargo and passengers, sailed
away. He was shot in the net of jumping over
board to make his escape, as say the Spaniarde.
He was a native of Guttenburg, Germany,
twenty-six years of age, a citizen 6t the United
States, and served In the Federal army during
the late war.
In looking at the situation here, it Is evident
that the struggle will continue a long time. 1
do not see any advantages on either side which
promise an early restoration of peace. Many of
the Spanish oilicers are disheartened; they speak
in very disparaging terms of their commanders,
seeming to have no faith in them. As an otlicer

A Man Charged with the Murder of bin Mother.
From the Mmcatim (Iowa) Courier, June 15.
We are Indebted to John D. Sheare, Sheriff of
Cedar county, who passed through tho city, for
a few of the details of a most horrible affair
which occurred last week on Rock creek, Cedar
county, three miles southwest ot Tipton. Mary
Boyle, a decrepld old woman, eighty-five years
of age, was cast off by her two sons, Daniel and
Patrick Boyle, both married men, and compelled
to seek support from the county. The County
Superintendent, flndiug that her two sons were
able to support her, compelled them to take her
aud keep her, but soon ascertaining that they
treated her Inhumanly, she was taken away and
placed in the poor-house, to be kept at her sons1
expense. They refusing to pay for her keeping,
suit was brought against them for the amount of
After this, It appears, Patrick Boyle, who lived
three miles Bouthwest of Tipton, on Rock creek,
while Daniel lives in Tipton, got his mother to
come to his residence on yesterday two weeks
ngo; and, after remaining there a week, it was
given out that she had died. On last Tuesday,
when the corpse was prepared for burial, a lady
living near discovered a cut or bruise behind the
left ear, and marks on the throat, and also dis
covered staius of blood on tho floor of the house.
On Tuesday the remains of the old lady were
Interred, and on that day or tho next the lady
who discovered the murks on the dead body and
the blood on the floor sent her son to Tipton to
inform the authorities, when a justice of the
peace, acting as coroner, a jury, and Drs. May
nurd and Kennedy repaired to the place where
the body was interred and exhumed it, finding
the marks on the head and throat as described,
the face presenting the appearance of one whose
death had been caused by strangulation.
Patrick Boyle, when questioned lu relation to
the cause of his mother's death, said that she
bad fallen out of bed, which had caused her
death. But as It was ascertained that she slept
iu a trundle bed, and that a tlat-iron was found
in the house with blood on It, aud that on the
evening of her death she was seen by some of
the neighbors at the door weeping, and when
asked what caused her to weep, replied that she
was very much abused, but that things would be
different if her youngest son was alive, and
Patrick then making his appearance and calling
her a , ordered her in, telling her that she
had only one more day to live, all fastened tho
guilt upon him, aud he was arrested and taken

The Conduct of Our MinlHter to Itra7.il.

and the business of bis (our) Government has

will be taken of his conduct by our Government.
The Brazilian Minister here asserts that what

owing to the conduct of Miuister WebB, and will

Fhtladelphlnin. Trying to Purchnne Monitor.
It li understood that Benjamin Berry, of your
city, and D. C. Forney are endeavoring to make
contracts with the Navy Department for the
purchase of several monitors advertised for sale,
with a view of selling them again to the Cubans
and certain of tho South American States.
Berry and Forney were at the Navy Department
to-day, but they could not come to an under
standing with Admiral Porter, owing to the fact
that the price they offer is much below the ap
praised value of the monitors.

Upon the beardless mun ;
Bronchitis cracks your voice, and cold
Invited there will stand.
Man leaves his home and wanders f ir
To earn his daily bread,
Who know and feel thov hare Cutanh.
That's rotting out the head.
Undreams of future years of bliss.
Yet lost tho sense of smell.
From wife or baby steals a kiss,
His breath corrupt can tell.
He has dull, heavy, dizzy brainx.
His voioe now coarse or irrum.
Slime from his head in throat remain.
Or to the stomach come.
The vital organ fed with slima
From ulcers in the head.
Rot out the lungs in shortest time.
And leave her victim dead.
God's Providence! the preacher cries.
It's false! Catarrh's the cause ;
One-third of all the lives
Are subject to its laws.
If healthy lanes you would not lose,
Drive lrom the tiead Catarrh,
