IBOX SHIPBUILDING AT CHESTER, i Vtxr York Capital not Coming to Time Some Inquiries About Johnny Roach. Ttie ancient fable of. "the Farmer and the Larks" la not yet obsolete, and it is still true that If you want anything; done you must dolt yourself. Our enterprising little neighbor, Chester, is having this fact renewedly and forci bly pressed upon her attention. 8ome months aeo her people revelled in golden-hued prophecies ot brr future greatness, founded on the fact that John Koach, prpprietor of the Morgan Iron "Works In New lork, bad made an extensive pnrcbase of land within the city, along the river front. We had, at the time, doubts as to whether this purchase would result in the establishment of any mighty enterprise, and our doutts were much Increased when we learned that Mr. Koach proposed to "build his hulls on the Delaware and his machinery at his New York works." This, it seems to us though perhaps practical, was not a wise policy, nor one tending to the great result of lessening the cost of building iron ships. Mr. Koach, however, has as yet done nothing toward building his shipyard, and the Chester Democrat facetiously asks, "iiow are you, Johnny Koach i"' and then proceeds to inquire Whether or not Mr. Koach really means business, or is merely speculating in land. It says that New Yorkers, of whom they have expected so much, have thus far been a failure, and thinks that the idea that New York has any respect for Chester is a mere hurtful fallacy. It gives several instances in which great expectations founded on New York capital have come to naught, and returning to Mr. Koach, says: "Now, how are you Johnny Koach? is the qneption, and what are you going to turn into? A leviathan or a speculator? Did you come over here and bur a tract of laud, and make promises, to get the Pennsylvania delegation in Congress to vote for your subsidy scheme? Out with it or down comes the printer's devil. VVe would like to have vou come bat we sincerelv believe that if you had got your $20,000,000 subsidy bill through you would have gone to New York to build the said steamers. Chester would have been a land of promise. You must remember that, when the Keaney works were offered, you did not see it. Do you think that your 'big thing' will come to town?" The Democrat evidently has doubts n the matter, and in all similar projects depending on New York capital, and says further: "That we are to be a great and rapidly-growing place, mostly through iron shipbuilding, few will deny; but that the capital is coming from New York, or that those who have thus far come among us are anything more than mere specu lators, few persons can be persuaded." We hesitate to say anything which would ap pear to cast a shadow over this bright hope, and could scarcely be induced to do so, did we think Chester would accept the unpalatable truth, but eince she will doubtless attribute what we eay to the jealousy of a supposed rivalry of interest, it will not hurt her, and will serve the cause of truth, to state the simple fact that Chester is, for several reasons, not especially adapted to iron shipbuilding. Nature has given her some great obstacles to contend with, and her efforts in that line of industry have never yet been suc cessful. For many kinds of manufacturing no place has better advantages, but in the building 01 Iron ships it is doubtful If any amount of capi tal and enterprise can make her great. mmgion vei.) vommerciai. YANKEE ASSURANCE. Young New York In the Vatican. The New York correspondent of the Boston Journal tells this story: One of our most eminent brokers has a portion of bis family travelling in Europe. Among them is a young son, who is preparing by travel to join his brothers in the business of the street. In company with some friends he made one of the party who were to have an audience with the Pope. As is well known, these audiences are held in the library of the Vatican. The visitors who have tbe honor of an Interview are ranged on either side, single file. The Pope passes down the line. As he passes slowly aloug devout Catholics kneel and kiss the slipper; quasl-Catholics kneel and kiss tbe hand of bis Holiness. Others stand and salute the hand which is extended to all. The young New Yorker was the last on the line. He did not kneel to kiss tbe shoe, nor did he kiss the outstretched band, but seized it, and gave it a good, hearty, Yankee shake. The consternation at the auda city of the young man was very marked. The Pope, who was evidently taken by surprise, was tbe first to recover himself. lie shook his finger roguishly at the youth, laid his hand on bis shoulder, and said: "You are from New York. I presume, young man?" "I am a New Yorker, was the reply. "I thought so," said the Pontiff, as he passed on, intimating that a New Yorker was quite daring enough for any thing. When questioned how he dared to do such a thing, Young America replied: "Dare do it?, I shook hands with General Grant and General Scott, and why should I not shake bands with tbe Pope as with any other eminent mani" The atlair is quite tne taiK ot tne street, where the youue man is well known. It will make bim quite as famous as the act of Raleigh when be flung his cloak in the mud before Queen Bees. A SINGULAR SUICIDE. A Man Throw Himself tn Front of a Lo- comotlve and lit Cut to i'leces. The Indianapolis Evening A'ews says that just before the ot. Louis express on tne lerre Hante, St. Louis and Vatidalla Railroad started from the Union Depot at 750 o'clock that morn ing, a strange man was observed to be slowly walking back and forth near the engine on the couth side of the track. In one hand he held a valise and in the other a shawl. Just as the train beiran to get in motion, and while still in the depot, he was seen to drop his valise and shawl, give a sort of groan or exclamation oi come kind, itoop a little and plunge headfore most under the en trine, between the forward trucks and the drive-wheel. Of course no mortal could have rescued him from death under the circumstances. One drive-wheel struck him. turning the man over on his back, just above the left hip, and literally crushed the lower part of the body, severing tue leu leg ana tne tmgn therefrom, and permitting bis bowels to pro trude. His right leg was also severely bruised above tbe knee, and broken below. Tbe engine was reversed and the train stopped within four feet from the place where the man fell. Tbe body was pulled out and taken to the Surgical Institute, where death followed within two or three minutes alter us arrival. PERILS OF THE DEEP. A Bark In Distress All Hands Days at the Pumps.
