CITY inTiiLLiuuncc.
The Kew Narrow Gauge Enlnci Now
Building at the Baldwin "Work The
Vew Theory Successful.
The Baldwin Locomotive Works of M. Baird
& Co., of ibis city, are now building some nar
row gauge locomotives for tbe Denver and Rio
Grande Kailroad, on the new principle of the
very narrow three-foot Range. The first of
.hese engines has just been completed, and is
oow at the works from, whence It will be for
warded in a few days to Its final destination. It
is called the Montana, and is the first locomo
tive of narrow gauge for general passenger or
freight service ever built io this country. Its
completion signalizes the "new departure" in
railway practice, and consequently great in
terest is naturally attached to it.
Tbe engine is six-wheeled, four of the wheels,
forty Inches in diameter, being coupled as
drivers, aud one pair of leading wheels in front
having a swing bolster and radius bar, forming
what is known as a "pony truck." This arrange
ment enables the eugine to pass short curves
readily, as the rigid wheel base is ouly six feet
three inches. Tbe general plan is similar to
that of ordinary full Range locomotives. The
cylinders are outside and placed horizontally,
and are nine inches in diameter by sixteen
inches stroke. Its total weight in running
order is 25,300 pounds, of whicli 20.500 are car
ried on the four driving-wheels aud so are avail
able loradhesion. A four-wheeled tender, having
a water capacity of 500 gallons and a coal capa
city of about onu and one half tons, is attached.
The proportion of driving-wheels relatively to
the stroke of piston admits of a speed of 30 to
40 miles an hour, with a facility equal to that on
the full gauge.
In addition to this, two other locomotives of
the tame gauge are now finishing for the same
road, which are Intended for freight service ex
clusively. They have each three pairs of drivers
and a pony truck.
As an evidence of the great interest now pre
vailing on the narrow gauge question, as well as
of the grent business connections and prominent
standing of this Philadelphia manufacturing
firm, this establishment now holds contracts to
furnish locomotives for quite a number ot nar
row gauge roads both in this country aud Cana
da. The firm also receive by every mail letters
and inquiries or information on the subject
from all parts cf tbe United States, from
Mexico, from the British Possessious. from
South America, and from Americans residing in
Jrdia and China.
"West Laurel Hill A Beautiful Tomb.
This new cemetery is situated on the west
bunk of the Schuylkil river, and from
the plateau, which is 225 feet above the
water, a commanding view extending for
miles both up aud down the valley is ob
tained. The cemetery grounds comprise 110
acres, bounded on the we6t by Belmont avenue;
and as the entrance gate is only four miles from
Market Street Bridge, it la eaiy accessible by
this tbe fluest avCLtie of the city.
A ride through this newly laid outplace forms
a pleasing extension of a drive through tbe
paik, and the vistas here obtained are so supe
rior to any in the latter that it has already at
tracted several of our artists to paint its beau
ties. Nuttire seems to have designed it for ilia
especial purpose to which it is now appropri
ated, and it has had the care of the founder of
Luurel Ilill in the development of its charms by
landscape adornment. Besides the elevated
phueau already referred to, its hillsides afford
admirable locations for vaults. These, wheu
built into the I ak, give an opportunity for
horizontal torabf Jj'tid thus at the same or less
outlay a greater TP.iect can be secured with one
ornamental front than it upon level, ground,
where it is necessary to adorn all four sides.
A capacious reeeiviug vault has lately been
built lor the company by Messrs. Johu Comber
& Co., who have the extensive granite aud ilag
btoae yard at Twetity-second and Chesnut.
A slight description of this tomb may be of
Interest, as it is unique and worthy of com
mendation from its thorough construction aud
It is a bank vault, 80 feet square, with an
Egyptian facade of blue Quincy granite, which
is a perfect specimen of that stylo of architec
ture. '1 he outer doors are made of heavy gal
vanized iron, and arc intended to be left open
during the day, iaside ot which is au open work
iron gate.
One enters ttie vestibule of the vault by rising
two slept, aud here, as well as in the main
vault or rave, it is paved with North river blue
stone. On three sides of the main vault are
solid stone catacombs, each of which is pro
vided with a heavy galvanized lrou door. These
latter have secure hinges, bolts, and brass locks,
and are intended to be sealed with cement
whenever used. These catacombs, over 50 in
number, are each thoroughly ventilated by Hues
at tbe back, and the coolness and dryness of the
whole are secured by chiniueys and substantial
(J Trills,
columns of granite at the four corners of the
Bave support heavy granite lintels, from which
epring three brick arches. The arch over the
nave is high and of fine proportions, and all are
covered on the outside with a thick coat of
Tna bank snrmounting the vault is grassed
and planted with evergreens.
The structure is as excellent in the details of
its construction as it is faultless lu its architec
ture! design and proportions, and reflects great
credit on Messrs. Comber & Co. W'e suould
have mentioned that its size is such that, oh the
last occasion ot its use, the whole fuueral com
pany were gathered inside during the perform
ance of the Episcopal burial service.
The Heading Kailroad have constructed a
Biding at the Cemetery Station (feneoyd),
which has-been used for funeral trains, and the
time may not be far distant whem this means of
access to cemeteries will be enforced by the
growth of our city.
The New TIooi ital. The Presbyterians of
this city will hold au out-door meeting in the
grove of Saunders College, Thirty-ninth 6Lreet
above Maiket, to-morrow atteruoon, at 4 o'clock,
when the Rev. Dr. Saunders will convey to them
his premises for a hospital. This square, bounded
by wide streets, one of 50 feet, two of CO, aud
the fourth of 80 feet, compri.es three and one
filth acres, beautifully variegated with large
native forest trees of different kinds, aud opeu
spaces filled with shrubbery and flowers. No
one will be disappointed who will go with the
expectation of seeing as beautiful ground as
this city or any other can present iu the form of
a square. They are more than six hundred f set
long on the suinmu of a ridge running from
north to south. Oa the east side, along the
street, is a line of ornamental trees of rare
beauty. Parallel with them, Inside the en
closure, is a row of Norway spruce, aud then
rise the lofty forest trees which have occupied
these grounds for ages. It is worth a vblt to
see this grove; but to-morrow visitors will see
thousands of our best citizens assembled to take
part in the exercises of a great occasion. Rev.
Dr. Musgrave will preside, and many of our
most distinguished speakers, including the
Mayor, will be on the platfarui, aud many of
our best singers are engaged to make the
grounds resouud with melody. All are invited
to be present.
Beer Saloon Robbed. The lager beer
saloon of John YVeller, at the comer of Judson
and Brown streets, was entered souse tuna last
night, and robbed of a gold watch, valued at
a revolver, a small quantity of jewelry, aud
to in cash., lie above wre UKcn from tin

tation of his ExceHency M. Catacazy, the Im
perial Russian Minister to Washington, yester
day visited the Russian diplomatist s summer
residence at Clilion, fciatea island. After coi
vei ting at length upon the various topics now
agitating European political circles, the con
versation turned upon h coming visit of
hie Imperial Highness thesGrand Duke Alexis
to the United mates. M. X-atacuzy remarked
that he bad DoLieed that a number of Journals
had, throunh their Washinsrtori correspondents,
positively contradicted the statements published
in the 2'itnrs in regard to the visit of the Prince
Alexis, stating that the report wits manufactured
out of whole cloth, and that the titate Depart
ment at Washington had iiotA received any
intimation, either from the Russian Minister
at Washington, or Governor CurVin, tne United
States Miuibter at St. Petersburg of toe pro
posed Imperial visit to Amerif'a M. Cata
cazy observed that these contradictious were
ceriaiuly made without the sliKhteot investl
pation bv the gentlemen of the press in
Waehing-ton. and had they appliad to the State
Department, ho said, the verity ottne announce
ments made iu the Times woii'd have been
proved conclusively. On the 14t'A f May, he
lirtLcr stated.be received a diplomatic note from
St. Petersburg, from his enlightened chief,
Prince Gorlscbakotf, the Imperial! Minister for
Foreign Atfairs, in which the Legation at
Washington was notified of the iiitcuded visit
of the Grand Duke Alexis Ale&udrowitsch
to America, with a squadron frcJtn the Im
perial navy. Tbe otllclal despatch stated
that bis Imp' rinl Highness would leave Cron
studt in the latter part of August,! and would
probably reach New York about tbe first or
second Week lu September, whei the Grand
Duke would immediately do himstflf the honor
of making a formal visit to the president of the
United States. A copy of the otlit'ial notifica
tion of Prince Gortschakoff was trusmitted to
Secretary Pish on the 15th of May by Al. Cata
cazy, for the information of the Pre ident, and a
few days uftcrwards the usual ackt owledgmcnt
of its reception at the Slate Depart ne"t was re
ceived at the Russian Embassy. l'be Russian
Minister further informed the Times that
tLe Imperial corvette Vsadi ick, which,
sailed for England yesterday, had been
ordered here by Admiral ( rabbe, the
Russian Minister of Marine,
the ariival of the Grand Duke's 84
to await
ad roo; but,
on account ot the postponement o
necs' visit until September, iu con
his High-
equence of
the heat of tbia climate, the order
n counter-
manded. M. Catacazy savs that he
ill occupy
he arrival
riter was
his summer residence at Clifton until
of the Imperial party, and wheu the
bidding his Excellency adieu.- the Courteous
diplomat took particular paius to observe that
"there is not one word of truth in tbt1 contra
dictory statements to the effect that tlo Grand
Duke has abandoned the Idea of visaing tbe
