?Mat appalling catastrophe.

Since writing the foregoing, I have seen and con
versed with a gentleman from the rains of San Hal
r. He informs me that seventeen persons had
taken oat of rained houses alive, and it was be
d that others might yet be saved. He describes
the sufferings of its late inhabitants as very great.
WKhont means of purchasing the necessaries of life,
Without homes?in a word they are houseless fand
?krrving. Here is a case for American sympathy.
I ill not my countrymen at home give their mite to
e warm nearted and generous Salvadoreans, and
thus aid in relieving their sufferings under this most
heart-rending and appalling affliction ? I know, I
feel, they will. Let wuat is done be done quickly,
far the hongry want food and t'ue houseless a home.
Funds may be remitted through Mr. Molina, the
?Aaiaterfor Salvador as well as for this republic, or
tteT can be forwarded, (and which I believe tyould
he the most effectual and speedy maimer), via Belize,
{Honduras), to Messrs. Baily k Castillol at Isaba),
for this go vernment to send down to the President
?f San Salvador.
The town of Ysaloo, eighteen leagues from Han
Balvador, has been the scene 01 a great confiagra
ften. Three hundred houses have been destroyed,
and principally those of the poorer classes. Great
Oetress prevails there also, in consequence.
The State of San Salvador has indeed been strick
tn. For two jears past It has been overran by the
fecosts, destroying the crops, rendering its rich land
barren, and making a dearth and scarcity of pro
visions, which alone has caused much suffering and
akknees too. Then follows this destructive fire, in
me of its principal towns, and, to close the scene,
Ibis terrible earthquake, destroying over one thou
sand lives, annihilating itecapital, and thus leaving
aigkteen to twenty thoim::iid of our fellow-beings
hoaseless wanderers, suffering all the horrors of want
and misery, and even at this moment, with a pros
pect of momentarily being engulpbed in the yawn
fag abyss of some newly forming volcano.

J embrace the earliest opportunity to Inform
you that the city of Ban Salvador, the capital
of that Btate, was destroyed by an eaitliqu&ke,
Which commcnced with great violence on the
night of the loth of April, alt. So sudden and
Violent was the first shock that many of the inhabi
tants were buried under the trails and rnins of their
own houses. Over one hundred and fifty bodies
have already been dug out, and more than that
Uomber are still missing; and when my informant
left, although several days had passed, the shocks
Of the earth were still felt. The entire city has been
destroyed, and in all probability will be entirely
abandoned. This was the most populous and weal
thy city in that State, and its destruction will prove
ft great loss to it, and will, no doubt, seriously em
barrass its financial aflairs. I omit any further par
Honiara, as I am in hopes they may have reached
you through some other channel before this.
The war of Guatemala with Honduras 'has appa
lently died out, as the former has made no further
efforts during the last two months, and probably
will not, as Gen. Correra is out of funds. The proa
MCt of the railroad from Port Cabcllo to the Paci
fic, through the State of Honduras, has excited
strange feelings among various interests at Guate
mala, and, in fact, throughout all Central America.
Here it is considered a Yankee take in, and our stur
*y John Bulls will not believe the thing possible, I
but as the evidence thickens, and the plans begin to
develope themselves, and doubt gives way to cer
tainty, they exclaim, "Can it be possible that a
track for a railroad can be found in the very
mountainous State of Honduras?" I am assnred by a
gentleman from the interior of the State, that he has
ravelled throngh the entire line of the proposed
road, and that it is not only practicable but that it
can be built at a trifling expense in comparison with
any other road contemplated at present. My in
formant is an American, who has travelled both ways
over the Panama and Nicaragua routes, and also
over the inland route from St. Ix>uis to California.
The people at Omao and its vicinity are in raptures,
and cry from their "heart's deep core," "The Amer
icans ore our greatest and best friends.1' The Gua
temalans arc as much depressed, and the feelings of
their dissatisfaction and discontent are very great,
and manifest themselves on every occasion.
The cholera has nearly disappeared from this set
tlement, and as we now ore enjoying very fine
weather, with a strong sea breeze, wo are in hopes
It will not again visit us. The weather is quite warm,
and water very scarce. The public have all the pri
soners engaged in bringing water from a large pond
sixteen to twenty miles up the river, for the use of
fee poor.
On the 20th *n Indian was hung in this town for
mnrder. He had murdered his wife by eating her
bead off with an axe.
On the same day a public meeting was held by
her Majesty's superintendent, in the Court House,in
regard to the colony of the Bay Islands. A no
tice of this meeting had been posted up for several
days; and although it was announced that the supcr
fctendent (who is the Lieutenant-Governor of the
oniony,) would take the chair, and that the Chief
Justice, Matthew Newport, D. D., the rural dean of
tills settlement; Mr. Cuyler, the chief magistrate of
the new colony; the Rev. Mr. Arthur and Joseph
degg, and several other gentlemen, would address
the meeting, yet all was of no effect, as at the time
of meeting only its officers, speakers, and their
families, were in attendance. This rather threw a
damper on the afTair, and the superintendent felt
thpt he had been led into an affair which the people
cared bat little about. In this emergency the pub
Is officers had the large court house bell rung loud
and long; and, as this would not bring the people, it
was again rung louder and longer. But all would not
jo; the inhabitants did not and would not come, and
the meeting was then organized with less than fifty
persons in attendance?and at no time were there ,
over fifty-nine persons present?among whom were
forty public officers, and members of their families.
1 wish time and space would allow me to give you a
report of each of the speech^, which were great
novelties in their way; and as one remark from Mr.
J. W. Travis, a member of our Legislature, was of
great importance to the wealthy, 1 will venture to ,
five it for the benefit of all great, rich rascals
throughout the world. At the cloae of his speech
he said " When you die, your money is the first
thing that leaves you?your fricuds the next; they j
follow you to your grave, and there they leavo you. i
Bat if yon will give your money to this good pur- I
pose?i. e., to establish a Church of England, clcr- .
Snan and school, at Rnatan?it will be a good act, |
ich will not leave, but go with you, and open a
passage for jou into heaven." " Enough sed!
The superintendent, after all the speakers had
had their Fay, and the meeting had adopted their
rcsolstions," made a most excellent .and practical
spcech, ana as it was his first speechas well as Ids
first appearance in public flace his arrival, I am
happy to say that, although evidently unprepared
tod unpremeditated, it gave evidences of a strong
mind, deep thought, and intimate knowledge of the
pest and present history of this continent. He '
spoke highly of the institutions and man of your
country, and then gave a history of the Bay islands; !
and aH this will be Interesting news to many of your 1
readers, I will give you that part of his speech :?
** A great many years have passed," said he, "since
atoy of the wealthiest and most intelligent of the
inhabitants of this settlement called the attention of
the crown of Great Britain tothe importance of sc
ouring to the crown of England the island of Koatun
and its sister islands- This step was urged with
great force by all of our eminent men in this settle
ment, down to the time that her Majesty granted to
those islands the charter by which they now are a
colony of Great Britain. Although often thus
nrgedto take possession of the*c islands, and fully
aware of their importance, with their fine harbors,
coves and inlets, as a key to the bay of Honduras,
uiJ as of vital importance to this settlement,
it was not until recently, and when fully
satisfied that onr near and enterpiizing neighbors
vron'd, if we did not, her Majesty's government,
yielding to the request of her most loyal subjects
here, and the prayer of the inhabitants of tliosc
Islands, took possession and bronght them un
der the protection of the Britidi crown. Recent
events, and a thorough acquaintance with their
coast and excellent harbors, capable of affording se
csre and good anchorage to large fleets of mer
chant and naval vessels?their being to windward;
the only good harbors on the whole bay, and their
beautiful supply of sweet water?have fully proved
the nest wisdom and ntillty to the English nation
Of that ^ct of her Majesty's government."
Thus It will be perceived that the right of Great
Britain to these islands rests so'elv on the grounds
of their advantages as a naval station, ajid their
commanding position in the bay of Honduras; thus
at last huvc the facts in regard to this -top on the
part of tireat Britain come to li^ht: and thns va
nishes into " thin air " the long and much talked
about dependences to Belize, as they havo been
called.

Captain Edwin Reed, a native of the United
States, formerly a resident of Philadelphia, died last
P?? v1 ?' f holer a. on the island of Ronacco. He
had, by energy, industry and perseverance, amassed a
email property besides nis plantation?a very large
and good one; he owned two vessels, and Besides
had a good sum in round dollars by him when he
died. This property will all be lost, as he died
without a will, and left no one to take care of it or
his children bat the family of a Creole woman whom

wife. It is to be hoped that some of his or her

The Latest Revolution \?wi from New
Urinadt.
|From the Afrpinw&U Courieribne 15.]
General Posada is ordered to laxe command of
the Province of Carthagena and the department of
Magdanela.
He is now raising recruits in runama, ond will
leave this for Carthagena in the first English stea
mer with such force as he may collect*
It is understood that all laborers employed on the
railroad are exempted from military service.
The Pananunosays, by a letter received from
Carthagena, June ?. we are informed that on tho
24th of last month General Melo attacked the con
stitutional forces assembled iu Capiquira under
General Franco, and routed them with considerable
loss. The defeated party had fallen on Aiubalema,
Honda and I^Mesa; that Meio's agents iu Bogota,
Berinas, Obregon, Ac., committed all kinds of cruel
ties and excesses, in order to effect the payment of
the tax which was levied on every person. A person
of the name of Don Raimundo Santamuria had been
imprisoned and kept in prison twenty.six hours
without food, light or water, who Unally had to ran
som himself with $0,000.
The Panameno gives tbe following:
"General Franco, with his troops, was occupying
Chocanta, and Melo, Capiquira.'' The former being
greatly moles ted.by the gueriUa parties of the latter,
in his advance on Capiquira, determined on attack
ing and taking that city, although General Herrera
and himself had agreed not to attack the enemy.
The rebels had fortified themselves Htrongly in their
houses, and by these means caused serions injuries
to the constitutional party; bnt even with all this,
fighting desperately, they managed to cut their way
through and reached the ?' plaza Mayor," but Gen.
Franco was killed by a discharge from the church
steeple. Discouraged by this unhappy event, the
troops began retiring in good order, but Melo in per
son pursued and completely routed them. The loss
sustained is estimated at 500. In consequence of
this, the forces of Gen. Lopez, stationed in the town
of La Mesa, formed with the troops that marched
from Popayan, Antiooula and Cauca. Gen. Herrera
had escaped uninjured from the defeat of Capiquira,
and eflected his march to Ambalema, after separa
ting in San Juan del Rio 8eco from Senor Jose de
Dios Ucroe, who had arrived at Honda.
Gen. Juan Jose Reyes Patria was in Tunja with
15,000 men, awaiting 400 44 llaneros."
The Diario de Avisos de Caracas says:-?
"It gives us much pain to read in the Pamaneno
that the citizens of the American Union positively
refuse to pay the provincial contributions, and treat
the authorities with contempt, causing them a thou
sand difficulties, which cannot in the end fail to pro
duce most disastrous results. We can conceive how
the members of a strong Union, governed by ambi
tious tyrants, who do not respect any principle or
any law, would bring to the countries where tbey es
tablish themselves the immoral customs of their gov
ernments; but we cannot possibly conceive that men
born and reared under the most beautiful political
institutions in the world, who have contracted habits
of order,and who kuow theoretically and practically
the value of the authority of the law for fostering iu
du.otry, can comport themselves, hi a regulated so
ciety, like people who for the first time come out of
the forest, and know no other limit to their actions
than that which material force imposes."
44 Tbe citizens of the American Union," where
ever they are found, refuse to suffer imposition and
insulting exactions from 44 ambitious" and tyran
nical officials, " who do not respect any principles
or any laws," whether weak or strong; they treat
with contempt any authority which is merely nomi
nal, wholly inefficient; 44 they know theoretically
and practically (the misery of) the authority of
the law,' (and) the officials that foster laziness
and every appearance of fraud iu themselves and
others, and they comport themselves with the inde
pendence and freedom of the denizens of the forest,
recognizing not the 44 limit " of 44 material force."
The Panama Star of the 10th, has the following:
General Joaquin Posada Gutierrez has been or
dered into active service, likewise to organize a
body of troopa to be called to 44 Division del Iatmo."

I Ah we go to press wc have time to glance at the
southern summary of the Panama Star and Herald,
frsm which we learn that an agent of Castllla, the
aspirant for the Presidency of Pern, who has been
endeavoring to oust Kcheni'ine, the inenmhent, had
proposed to some of the returned Australians to aid
in upsetting the government: that in consequence
a rumor had been circulated that one or two hun
dred foreigners were to assault the palace and rob
the national treasury; that El Heruldo contains a
long article npon tlie danger of allowing the A tneri
ean emigrants to remain in Lima; that Americana
and Australians arc frequently attacked in the vi
cinity of Lima; and that when the Americans suc
ceed in captnring the villains, the authorities, in
stead of aiding them, throw them into prison; that
the Americans who have come there are geneially
in considerable distress from want; that several
small parties are going, and have gone to Cbancha
mayo, about fifty leagues from Lima; that it was
thought they had taken a good route for explora
tion, and that the balance of emigration from Aus
tralia in bound for the Isthmus.
[From tbe Valparaiso Eclio, May 14.)
, We have it from good authority that in the
prospect of an open war between England and
France and Russia, the two former powers, with a
I view to the protection of the commercial interests
of their citizens on the shores and waters of the Pa
cific, have ordered to this coast two vessels of tvar,
viz., H. B. M.'slfrigatc Pique, of 44 guns, and. the
French frigate Alceate, of 32 guns, These vessels
left England in the beginning of March, and may be
now almost, dailv expected in this port. With this
reintorcement tnere i? little fear of either British or
French shipping being molested cither by the Rus
sian men of war, privateers or corsairs, as we think
the Pacific ocean will be in a very short space of
time completely swept of anything like Rosm* ship
ping.
Isi.ai, April 12,1954.
The most important news at ]>rc-cnt here, is the
arrival of the Gumarra, If! gun Peruvian brig, hold
ing herself ready to blockade the port it is supposed.
On the morning of the loth. arrived the Cockatrice,
' 4 gun schooner, ('apt. Dillon, from Arica, to see
what is going on. Iu the nij(ht of the lutb, also ar
, rived the Rimac steamer, searching for the Gamar
rn, which, after communicating with the Cockatrice
I held on her voyage for Arica.
I On the 18th, arrived the Gamom^nd on the morn
I ing of the ISth the Rimac returned, and after stay
; ing the whole day, went away in a northerly direc
tion. No communication is allowed either by the
; authorities on shore, or by those on hoard the Oa
! marra. On the evening of the 20th, a boat from
i that vespcl came up to the mole and took away the
, "CaptainV boat, leaving in its place their own?
? merely an old battery of a thing; they returned
! again shortly after, wnen some smart tii ing took
| place, which ended in the retiring of the brig's peo
ple with one man killed. In this port is stationed a
| large force, headed by first rate officers, who know
! their duty and doit. (!en. Castilla is at Cnzco, re

or money. Gen. Yivanco and San Roman are still
i in Tacna, and will proceed to Areqnipa in a day or

By private advices wc have learned that the rc*
1 ports we have previously had of the arrival of Gen.
Mosqr.era in the vicinity of Bogota, and the union of
his forces with those of Ilerrerii, under ??en. l'i,;iico.
, were incorrect.
On. Mosqnera, up to the 1st, had not Wt B?rran

A rumor wa? in circulation in oufciiy, on Sunday,
that a small party in the province of fiuenaventurs
had deelaitd for Melo, and that Ten. Posada wan
; raising a force to go to the suppression of the move
m?nt. But letters under q! th? ?th tost,, jrn?

doubt the credibility of the story,
The general impression now seems to be, that
the task of putting down Melo will be very diffknlt,

The Walker Divorce Case.
COlWON fLEAB?fabt II.
cathkrini k. t. walker, by her hkxt ruirsn.
christian S. sloanb, VS. WILDES p. waxjuth.
Before lion. Judge Ingraham.
FIFTH DAY.
Juni 23 The courtroom wad as crowded asu'-ual
this morning, at ihe opening of the Walker divorce
case. Among those present were a large somber of
ladies, who had either teen summoned as witnesses,
or were interested in the suit.
Mr. Churchill, for the defence, as soon as the jnry
had answered to their names, moved to strike on;
the evidence of Amasa llagar, on the ground that it
was not pertinent to any of the plaint ill 's allegations
in her complaint.
Mr. Blunt, after reading the allegations in the
complaint, which charged the defendant with visit
ing houses of ill fame in Mercer street, cited the evi
dence of Hagar andWark, (see report in TImuu>
of Thursday,) and contended that the facts there
sworn to were sufficient to go to the jury, whose
province it was to settle the question of the perti
neney of the evidence to the charge.
The Court said that the jury would be instructed
to disregard this evidence, if the defence could show
that it was not pertinent.
Mr. Busteed then renewed the motion, of
which he had given notice yesterday, to dismiss
the action, on the gronnd that at the time of the
filing of this complaint Mrs. Walker was nob
a resident of this State, and that during the
time of the commission of these alleged acts
of adalterv, neither Mr. nor Airs. Walker were resi
dents of this State, and that iho court had no juris
diction over the oase at all. lie said that all actions
of divorce were governed by statutory regulation.
Where the question of jurisdiction was made an
issue in the case by the pleadings it must be clearly
proven. If the issn?was taken in the answer of the
defendant that at tne time of the tiling of the com
plaint the parties were not residents of this State,
affirmative proof of the existence of this court's
jurisdiction must appear. In order to give the
court jurisdiction one of three things must affirma
tively appear?tirst, the parties or one of thorn must
have been inhabitants of this State at the time of
the commission of the ofTcnce. It could not be con
tended here that at the time of the commission of
the first offence Mr. Walker was an inhabitant of
this State. Yale, the first witness for the plaintiff,
swears that Mrs. Walker came to Brooklyn on the
2l)th September, 1833. Up to this time she had
been living in Maine. Certainly at the time of the
alleged commission of these offences Mrs. Walker
was not an inhabitant of the St ite, and therefore
she can take nothing by her writ and complaint.
Secondly, it is within the authority of this court to
grant a divorce when the marriage has been
solemnized within the State, but no proof has been
adduced where this marriage was solemnized.
If the powers of the court have been properly
invoked, that jurisdiction must be l'ouudcd
on one of the three subdivisions of the section of
the statute. The Court here will remark the care
fulness of the language employed by the legislature.
For injured parties to obtain relief, by divorce, in
our courts, tney must be inhabitants ot the State at
the time the acts complained of were committed.
In the first subdivision, where both husband and
wife are inhabitants of the State, the word "actual"
does not occur. In the second subdivision, which
speaks of the solemnization of the marriage, the
injured party must be an "actual" inhabitant of the
State; and so in the third subdivision. lie con
tended that the word "actual'' was used here tr in
du stria, that there was a difference between inhab
itants and "actual" inhabitants. The question then
was, whether Mrs. Walker was an actual inhabitant
of the State of New York. Now, it appeared in
evidence that, on the 30th September, 1853, she
went to the Mansion House, in Brooklyn; that her
name was inserted in the books as a resident of
Maine,and as a transient hoarder; ..bp was a married
woman, and her domicil was the same as that or her
husband. No proof has been brought forward to
show that the parties were living separate. If the
other side has failed in proving that they were then
living apait by agreement, or that Wildes P.
Walker had abandoned his tamily; if they have
not shown this, they have failed to show a
jurisdiction. The learned counsel produced a
great number of authorities to show the nature
of a domicil, and that if a right in a domicil
is once fixed it will contiuue, notwithstanding the
absence of the party, until a new one is taken.
The counsel referred, among other authorities on
these points, to the cases of Jenningson and others
vs. At'.wood, and Greene vs.Greene, 10 and 11 Picker
ing R., 3 Grcenleaf R. 4t>o and o ib. 3'JO, 1 Biadford
K. 09.
Mr. Blunt said that the following section of the
law was an answer to the whole tirade of the conn
Mi (see Revised Statutes, p. 3jO):?"If a married
woman, at the time of exhibiting a b 11 against bcr
husband under the provisions of either of the 'wo
last articles, shall reside in this State, she hall be
deemed an inhabitant thereof, although her lituband
may reside elsewhere."
The Court said that whether the defendant was
or was not an inhabitant of the State of New York
was a question of fact, which, like all other facta,
would have to be submitted to the jury.
The ease for the defence wa.s then opened.
Mr. Busteed rose and said:?May it please the
Court, and you, gentlemen of the jury, on the 15th
day of July, 1840, at the toivn of Bath, in Maine,
Wildes F. Walker, the defendant in this action, was
joined together in the holy bands of matrimony with
Catherine F. 1'. Patten. The nuptial ritcj were at
tended with circumstances of more than common
intciest. The father of the fair one not only re
[rated to be, but in fact was, the wealthiest burgher
n the whole State. The sails of hiB shipi, freighted
with rich merchandise, whitened every sea. (A
laugh.) The lands in his nGighl>orbood were called
after bis name; the great men of the city and State
gladly received bint into their companionship and
council. This magic wand converted into shilling
gold all tlie baser substances which his genius for
money-making subjected to his will. Ho was clothed
in purple and tine linen, and fared sumptuously
everyday; his magnificent equipage, with the gay
'emblazonments of heraldry, and the gaudy trap
ping of outriders and footmen, proclaimed daily tho
power and wealth of this peer of the realm, and be
was the ?nvy and wonder of the parvenu w/'-o,
starting in life with (Icorgc F. Patten, lnd been left
immeasurably behind in the race. lie was rich,
and he was proud. In bis lordly mansion in Maine
he kept his best jewels; several daughters were at
once tne pride and solace of his heart, and attracted
to his board all of the other sex who, per
force of good fortune, possessed the magic sesame.
One of those girls, then in her nineteenth year, was
the bride of the occasion to which T have adverted.
Blusbingly beautiful, highly accomplished, and
liberally educated, she was to all human ker good
enough to be the wife of an European autocrat, yet
none too good (looking at the defendant) to be the
wife of a son of New Kngland, a mothei of Ameri
con freemen. She had been wooed an.l she ha 1
bees won by the man into whose keeping, for weal
or woe, she placed her destinies. Scorning tho
opposition of the millioniarc father to her alliance
with a man whose little all counted but some beg
garly five thousand dollars, she willed to be his wife,
e'en though sl.e cea:ed to be her father's daughter.
Tlie pride of the citizen ltnd to bow before the
majesty of parental love, and Wildes P. Walker was
condescendingly allowed to enter the fmnily. The
Lappy groom, then hi his twenty-sixth year, was the
possessor of that kind of character which lath- birth
right of an American boy. Industrious, capable,
honest and fearless, he lived in the future, and
made the present but the entering wedqetothe
glory that was to come. He had dared to beard
"the lion in liis den. the Douglas in his bulb"
He had entered the list of competitors, and )vd
borne off in triumph the rich prize for which
all had contended. Eren his rivals ad
mitted his worth, and worshipped his prowess.
Pardon me, gentlemen, if I love to linger in eontcm
! plntion of such a scene. The atmosphere of such a
world is a holy one. There stood the man of God,
and at his aide, the man on the right hand, t&c wo
man on bis left?those who Were to share together
this honorable estate. Clothed with the plenipoten
tiary power of his holy calling, he calls upon all
present to show any just cause w liy those two loving
hcaits should not be joined together. The rich fa
ther dare not in that hour even suggest that the r.an
who aspired to his daughter's hand was poor. No
other cause of embarrassmr nt exist' d. The father,
thus invoked, was silent. Let him see to it that he
forever after holds his peace. \nd now the minis
ter of the altar addresses himKolfto the twain, and.
liftiug up his voice, charges them both, M they will
1 answer at the dreadfal day of judgment, when the
i ceretsof all hearts shall m disclosed, that if either'
of th< m know any impediment why th.ey may not bo
Iawfi.; v joined in matrimony, they then confess it.
1 No such cause is in the way. And now, a low,
| t weet voice, musical as tho spheres, tremulously is
a fluttering dove, and yet confidently as a loving
^hild, is heard distinctly, and with r.ubdued, but
marked intonation:?"I, Catharine Patten, take
thee, Wildes p. Walker, to be my wedded husband,
to have and to hold from this day forward, for.,bet
ter, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in siciucps and
in health, to lov.e, cherish, and to obey, and, forsak
ing all others, to keep only unto th?c as long as we
both do live. An t thereto I give thee my faith."

FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL.
MOW IT MARKET.
Fuday, June M?C P. M.
There was a alight let op to day in the stock market.
At the Unit board there ?w considerable activity, but
mo*t of the tranaactiona were on time. Caab ?tock ap
peer* to be scaroe. Canton Company advanced to day
per cut; Nic*r?fua. Transit, 3^; Cumberland Co*!,
New York Central Railroad, 2; Erie Railroad, 1, B?rleui, 1;
Reading Railroad, New York Central Bonds declined
*4 per cent; Michigan Southern Railroad, lj Northern
Indiana Conatructlon, }i, New Ilaven Railroad, \; Cleve
land and Toledo Railroad, At the opening thla m"rn
ing the market wee weak, and prices did not vary ma'.eri
ally from tho?e current at the close yesterday, but for
some unexplained cause,an improvement s?jon after coin
menced, and at the close there waa quite an upward ten
dency. We have no faith in the advance. Nothing hat
occurred to ranterixlly change the condition ot ?l.in:.* I
allaire, and bo fur as the internal affairs of the princ.pal
railroad companies are concerned, th' y are daily ?lmo? t
hourly, getting worse. Many of the manager* of th"
railroads occupying a jirominent place in the booi-e of the
stock exchange, are active speculators in the st< .!?-? of the
different companies, sometimes for a rise And sometimes
for a fall. Many others who do not openly appeur u specu
lators in the stock, avail themeelves of their pom.ion to
make money out of the company. We can point out dozens I
of instances where the stockholders have teen awfully |
swindled upon sales made by tho director* to the com
pany. l*roperty has frequently been bought by directors,
after it was known only to themselves that the road re j
quired it, and sold to the company at an advance of t^o, |
three, and live hundred per cent. This U tha only way ,
the directors of our railroad companies can ge'. any pay
for their services, and the stockholders cancot expect
them to work for nothing. Unfortunately th?y ge
much more tlian the best of them arc worth, .*nd they
are rather expensive employes. Rich men do not line to
work for nothing, and the time and service <levGted to
railroad management are no trifling matters.andm be
paid for. It would lie much better for any con.MDy if
they wore paid directly so much per annum, incteac of
leaving them to fleece the stockholders by making tlicin
pay lour or Ave prices for everything required. A rail
road president who is willing to work without ray is
the deareet officer any company can employ. Tin re are
too miny of these unpaid president*, and the fooncr a i
change is made in such a system, the better for j
tbe interests of the stockholders. It !s full
time something was done to do away with the nests oi ;
?peculators which now infest tho office of all our lead ug
railroad companies. The Eric Railroad Coiupauy s office*
have swarmed with stock speculators. The old brood
has been pretty well scattered, but ?e shalihave another,
perhaps equally destructive to the best interests of
stockholders. There probably never has been a railroad
company in this country so deliberately used for the pur- t
pose of filling the pockets of its management as tiie j
Erie. From the very commencement it has been in the
hands of speculators, and every movement mule in thu j
administration of its affairs has been for the aggran
dizement of. some clique of financiers. Wc hare come 1
in for our share of their abuse for evposlng fiom time j
to time their financial operations, but that did not trou
ble us much. It convincod us more of the truth of our ;
strictures, and induced us to make more tho- j
rough investigations. The plank which has for j
some time past hold the wreck together, is about i
being torn away, when the whole concern will j
probably go to pieces. All the old rats have been j
leaving the ship, and before many weeks elapse not a
?vestige will be left of this once grand enterprise. It is a
pity that such a great work should have falien into such I
hands. The New York Central is likely to go in the same
way. Its managers are fast followiug in the footfteps j
of their illustrious competitors, and the result ie likely
to be the saino. Cumberland was in demand to day at '
the improvement. The appreciation in the market value |
of this stock may bo attributed to more important causes ,
than appear at first glance to the casual observer. The
depreciation in railway shares la not owing to any decline (
in the traffic, but to the enormous increase cf expense".
One item alone on some railways is alarming, and the
saving of one-half the cost of fuel maybe made by the
u?e of eoaland coke, in some instances equal to a divi
denil. It Is difficult to overcome tho prejudices and
habits of firemen and agents of roads; but there is no al
ternative. The Maryland railroads use Cumberland ronl.
I with great economy, and the firemen could not be induced
to go hack to wood, so much is the labor lessened. 1 lie
New Haven and Springfield Railroad Company arc also
I using Cumberland coal on their l'reigbt engine*, and tbe
Norwich company have it on a passenger train.
The I'nion Ferry Compnny bavo just made a contract
with the Cumberland Coal Company for thirty thousand
tons of coal. It ie a greet saving in expense ard the
effect on boilers. By an experiment recently made, it
was proved that 100 tons of anthracite coal lasted two
tow boats eight days, while 100 tons of Cumberland coal
lasted the same two boats twelve days. Here l? ? fact
which cannot be controverted, and tucU facts will
rapidly increase and exteud tho conaumi tion of the
Cumberland coal into the remote-t eectious of the
country.
