The Excitement in Servia?Pictures
from Servian Life.
THE TRUE STORY OF THE REBELLION.
Bosnia the Great Stronghold of
Belgrade, Sorvia, Sspt. 17, 1875.
ThlH morning there was a new depart urn of volun
tecra for the frontier of Bosnia, and no attempt was
made to conceal the fact. The men were rough and
ready follows, clad in the costume almost universal
\ ?mong tho lower classes in Servia, Bosnia and Her
zegovina, the bagqy broechos and tho loose flowing
?ack of coarse material; tho ornamented leggings and
coarse cowskin sandals; tho gaudy scarf crammed
with formidable looking knives and immense Turkish
and Armenian pistols, aud thoir tanned faces, brought
into siroug relier by the glaring red oi thoir caps.
There seems nothing like bravado about these poople;
they go very quietly away In an orderly manner, as if
thoy fully apprcctato the danger to which they aro ex
posed. If caught thoy will experience the
pleasing sensation of being impaled alivo upon
sharp sticks, which the Turkish troops have
a wonderful talent for preparing. There
la no doubt whatever that the Turks have been, and are
still daily, guilty ol tho most frighfUl barbarities tow
ard their prisoners. As they punish Servians whom
they find in Bosnia Just as sovercly as the Bosnians
thcmsolvca, It is certain that Servia will ere long, what
aver tho Skuptschlnn may do now, bo practically at war
with Turkey, unless tho insnrgonts in tho neighboring
provinces aro completely crushed cut. And, as tho
mountains aro the allios of tho Insurgents, tho Turks
will have much to do beforo they can with truth an
nounce that tho crushing out has been effectual.
All Belgrade was on loot this evening to see the ro
turn of the militia from its annual encampment which
1 have mentioned In a previous letter. Tho scene was
very charming. Tho main aveuue of the town, tho Tc
rasla, was brilliantly Illuminated by the Inst rays of tho
gorgeous southern sunlight, and the picturosquo cos
tumes of tho hundrods ot groups wcro rendered daz
zling by tho after glow. Tho troops curao marching
down the long tree lined avenue leading from the en
campment, and passed In excellent order to tho
mam avonuo. Most of tho men looked hot
ter in lino than they had appeared on
tho field. Thoy were tho butchers, bakers
and hairdressers or tho city and tho sturdy peasants
from tho neighboring towns; but they wero all ani
mated by a dosiro to proservo discipline, nnd succeeded
well. There wero cries for war as these gallant troops
filed past, but there wero no responses from the ranks
beyond occasional significant winking. To-day, also, I
have seen a detachment of tho troops of tho regular
Servian army which will bear favorable comparison
with any in tho Austrian lino, and aro incomparably
superior to anything tho Turks now have In the Held.
If Servia had 60,000 sucli men as these regulars whom I
saw going to their exercise at sunrise this morning sho
could drivo the Turks out of Europo in four months.
THE BXKVUN GENERAL.
The General of the Servian army was kind enough to
accord mo an intorvlow, in which ho declared, without
reserve, that ho believed peace would bo for tho pres
ent preserved. General Lach is one of the most accom
pli shod and polished soldiers In tho 1'anublan I nnel
palitios. He lias in previous years given his sword in
the service of revolutions, and has been well and honor
ably known as a commander, lie did not disguise his
own convictions that In time Servia would ouco moro
have to come to blows with Turkey, nor did he seem to
regard tho eventual federation ot Servia, Bosnia, Hor*
zegoviua and Montenegro as a dream. Ile sympathizes
to the fullest cxtont with tho people in their aspira
tions for Sclavlc unity in their section; but he imagines
that tho present duty of tho government under which
be holds office Is peace. Ho said that Servia could, in
easo of emergency, bring 60,000 men into the field for
Immediato action, but that it would bo a great strain.
While we wero in conversation the General was con
stantly called to receive tho cards of some inystorious
visitors, who came to solicit aid for tho insurgents. Ho
smiled as he spoke of tho groat number of requests
daily mado for arms, and as he mentioned tho Impossi
bility of granting them, there wcro cases, he said>
which were very affecting, cases in which stout
peasants, who were doubtless actuated by the purest
motives, were moved to anger and to tears boeau.so tho
government would not give weapons. These peasant^
he said, always brought talcs of tho most horriblo
lorturo ' Inflicted by the Turks on tho Christians.
"What," said one stout farmer to the General, drawing
bla tall form up to its fullest height and placing one
huge brown hand on tho little arsenal of knives in his
girdle, "What! our brethren ore perishing under tho
bastinado and wo are not to be allowed to have guns
with which to shoot their tormentors," and, although
the peasant took his leave of tho General politely, tt
was evident that ho was doeply wounood and offended
sad would not fall to work against tho government's
projects or peace. Tho General shrugged his shoulders
when 1 asked him If tho people wero likely to be head
Strong and might refbso to llston to the cautions show
ered ujmn them from all parts of Europe. "I? is a
people," ho said, "jealous or interference, hot-blooded
end apt to rcsout, without much regard to consequences,
any check upon their doslros." Tho Skuptschlna is
largely composed of peasants who know almost nothing
of the affairs of Europe, outside of their own country,
end who caro less. The ono-tbtrd or tho Assembly
which Is appointed by tho government docs its best to
act as u leaven of moderation, but does not always
succeed. Goneral Lach mentioned tho fact that the
Bkuptschtna has tho power, In case It is entire
ly displease I with tho courso of events in
Servia, to convoke an extraordinary Assem
bly for tho revision of the constitution and
for special measures generally, and this, although tho
Gcueral did not say so, might give a severe blow to the
government Itself. After an Interview which the pres.
once of clamorous Insurgents in tho antc-cbamber
necessarily made brief sweets and coffco were served In
the Eastern fasbton, and I left the General, convinced
thai he would, in case of actual war, do the Servian
nation good service and much credit.
AX INSURGENT CHIRP.
You have, of courso, heard of Mitcha Llnbobratich,
the celebrated Insurgent chief, who has been making
such a stir among tho Turks in the Herzegovina
Uubobraticb started from nero on his tour In search of
m new fight against the Porte ami its oppressions. He
la a man of some learning and much energy; his per
sonal friends hero speak very highly of hire, although
Ihey frown on any prospects of modintlon, such as
those essayed by the consuls at Muster and Stolats, and
would not aauction Liubobratlch should lie participate
IB them. Ho had been living for some tlmo in Bel
grade, where he had retired at tho close of a previous
movement against tho Turks, a movement in which he
was ono or the leaders, when an Incident occurred
which really began the prcsont Insurrection,
jand brought him ouoe moro Into the field. It appears
that certain prominent Christian citizens in Herzego
rina had becomcconsplcuous as counsellors of resist
ance to the crushing taxation of which the Turks aro
guilty The heavy hand of the Porte was about to bo
laid on these men, when they were warned nnd fled to
tho mountains of Mcwtooegro, taking refuge under the
protect,on of tho Prim* of that Principality. There In
the caverns and amon^he almost impenetrable ravines
?I the Lernuyora they tvere meditating plans for future
action when they rccciv^ from the Montenegrin capl
lal me.-sages announcing vthat tho Turks, In a spirit of
toacilialion, had agreed to'pardon them If thoy would
return; and, in addition to* this, ail kinds ol reforms
?, the local administration wets promised. The unfor
tunate men were loolisb enougir to believe the Turkish
word and returned to their homes They were irame
f ately arrested, taken beforo some local functionary,
and every ono was executed before any attempt at a
rescue could be planned by fho Christian m
tabilan is. This vindictive slaughter, which
was ono of the many inexplicably foolish acts
which tho Turks are constantly committing, in their
European provinces, terribly oxaspcrated the popula
tion of Herzegovina. It appeared to them Hit# ?
wtorkery of their prayers for peaceful reform, liko a
tlrcot Insult to all their overtures for conoiltatlou
Mul GttiuucwBLM^ The Turk, uqt content with LfUuk t%l
?? glaoura, mill massacre (hose leaden who (tared to
easert that their souls were their own. A kind of mad
ness selgpd upon tho rayah, who trembled as he
Uought of hie own folly in ruing against tho turbancd
tyrant who haa kicked, bastinadoed and sabred hla race
lor nearly 400 yearn Messengers were sent through all
tho land, into tho mountain passes, slong tho roaming
Naronla and down the smoothly flowing Save, through
forests, and to tho monasteries o* the clitlk, and tetters
describing the massacre of the Herzegovinians were
sent to Ltubobratlch In Belgrade.
Thu day after the receipt of tho letters Llubobrntich
purchased a simple outfit and left Belgrade for the Her
zegovina In the wild mountain passes he rallied
around htm s little band, and tho insurrection at onco
began to make a noise in Europe. Liubobruttch lias not
since that time been thoroughly satisfactory to the in
surgents as a leader, but mainly because bo lias not
been able to furnish thom with arms and munitions.
They need something besido leaders; they need good
guns and plenty of cartridges.
Liubobratlch and Popo Larcbo aro the two loaders
who have, thus far, done most to gtvo tho insurrection
force and prospect of continuanco than any one else.
Tbo priests'in Bosnia aro nearly all interested in tho
rebellion. They aro men of extraordinary will and
much learning. They have succeeded in infusing con
siderable courage into oven tho trembling rayah.
Larebo and his men made a curious beginning. T hey
"bolted," as the English would say, with some cannon
belonging to Servia trora a poiut on the frontier, and
made a series of reckless attacks on the Turks when
ever they found them. The Bosnian Mussulmans aro
nearly all Serbs In reality?that la, tlicy, like the Chris
tians'or "rayaha," apeak the same laneuage spoken in
Servia, and have other points ol' resemblance with
their neighbors. They aro nearly all renegade Chris
tians, and besides being great fanatics llioy are great
cowards. Popo Larcho and his UtUe army created a ter
rible sensation among them. Their frightened imagina
tions pictured tho war-inspired priest followed by a
hordo of bloodthirsty peasants boarmg down upon their
villages, and they at once huddled together for protec
tiou In tho large towns. Larcho has not allowed any
massacres of prisoners to occur, although tho Turks,
whenever any priests aro taken, put them to eat i
with tho most cruel tortures. Let me give you an ex
ample, which 1 have had from tho mouth of an eye
TUB TURKS TOKTURB AND IMPALE A I'RIEST.
Two priests lu a monastery not lar from Berblr,
which is a Turkish fortress opposite Alt Gradiska, in
i Austria, were convicted by tho Turks of participating
I In the Insurrection. A force was sent to the monastery,
and ono of tho priests was captured. Tho other suo
' ccedod in escaping to tho mountains. The priest who
| was taken had his hands and feet cut off while he was
' alive, and after boiug allowed to suffer the horrible tor
tur. J consequent on mutilation for some tiino ho was
, impaled on a sharp stake and left as a warning to all
others. A troop was sont into the liiUsiilo forests in
i pursuit of tho second priest, but he was not round until
a day or two after, when hunger forcod him to
1 stray into a neighboring village. Thoro he was
recognized, denouueed by some Bosnian Mussulmans
| and at onco arrested. A guard was sent for und tho
1 unfortunate priest was brought into Berblr half dead
'' from wounds and with a huge iron collar around his
I nock, llo was thrown into a filthy dungeon and
was not oven given food. Ho soemod likely to start o
beforo UUtormoutors should decide to kill him.
At this junrturo tho Austrian Consul nt Berblr heard
! of the priest's horrible treatment. Now tho Austrian
Consul there is a man, and his blood boiled as ho saw
tlio Ignorant and degraded Turks day by day abusing
men who are in everything their betters. When tho
fate of tho first priost and the danger of tho second was
related to him ho went straightway to tho local func
I tiunury and said something very IIko this:?"You mis
' cruble old cur, Is it possible that you can treat human
I beings, and above all ministers of God, as you have
I treated this poor priest? Aro you not aware that an
Intelligent Europe, which despises you, Is looking on (
The Consul, whatever he said, used very strong language
and demanded that tho collar bo at once taken Irom
tho priest's neck and that ho be given decent
food and some kind of protection against tho howling
mob that surrounded the JaiL Perhaps there was a
tinge or Sclavonic blood In this Austrian Consul's veins,
and that thcro was beneath his earnest pleading for tho
priest tho fervor of a dangerous menace which even
the dull Turk could discern. At any rate, the consular
suggestions were heeded, and tho lifo of the priest up
to dato has been spared, although ho is still in prison.
The Consul merits a modal from his government for his
intervention in behalf of humanity. Tho story goes
that ho threatened to pull down his flag and retire if
tho Turks did not yiold to his request; hut that is not
Tho stories of Turkish cruelty are indisputably true,
and there aro enough of them to condemn forever tho
administrations or tho oppressed provinces. Servia
herself has umple cause to day for making war on
Turkey, for sho has recoivod provocations which seem
almost incrcdiblo because of their audacity. At tho
very moment that the Turks announce their intention
of in no manner interfering with Servian affairs during
the progress of the present struggle, their troops peno
trato a frontier Servian villago and kill women
and children and Impalo men alive. Ono could almost
refuse to believe It were it not for the testimony of Buch
a cloud of respectable witnesses. After a brief inspec
tion of the Turkish troops and the Bosnian Mussulmans
who aro aiding in suppressing tho insurrection I can
believo anything. Such men as 1 have seen would do
anything, and llioy arc certainly well provided with
weapons for tho currying out of any bloody design
which they may desiro to undertako.
Pope Larcho is one of the main stays ot the insurrec
tion now. If he falls, tho troubles both in Bosnia and
Herzegovina wilt bo considerably abated. If not entirely
quelled. He is a kind of Peter the Hermit, preaching a
crusade with such eloquence and the force of his own
example. Ry the way, It is only a short distance above
Belgrade, on tho Danube, whero Peter, tho renowned
hermit, actually did preach his famous sermons to tho
soldiers of tho llrst crusade. Tho rook w hence phi
lippics wcro once fulminated against tho inildol now
servos as tho foundation of a huge Stato prison and
a garrison of 3,000 soldiers which the gov
ernment finds it Anvenlent to maintain on tho mili
tary confines of Sclavonic. To return to Pope Larcho,
there is no doubt whatever that ho receives both aid
and comfort from Servia and that the hardy volunteers
now leaving Belgrade will flock in great numliera
around his standard. Ho is ouo of the apostles of Ser
vian unity. Ho hasdtmly conceived In lus own mind
the idea of a groat State in which all the peoples of tho
same general type, even including tho Bulgarians, shall
bo Joined for mutual protection. Larcho knows that
the Turks wilt kill him If they catch him, and ho will do
his best not to engage in any general battle, either in
Bosnia or Herzegovina, but to harass the Turks and
cause them grievous loss perpetually. This is now tho
main object of the insurgents. They will do their best
to keep up the strugglo In an irregular and desultory
fashion nntil the sympathies of Europe are really
aroused and the arms which they so bitterly need aro
furnished them. Then even the fngitivo rayahs may be
induced to roturn from their rofuges in Austria and
strike the crowning blow.
Perhaps the Servian government may And itself In a
short ttmo forced to bo lax in the matter of granting
arms to those who apply for them. The peasants who
have been horo for tho last few days en
deavoring to get weapons are loud in tholr
murmurs of dissatisfaction, louder than can possibly be
agreeable to tho occupants of the pretty little palace on
the Theresla. I had an instanco this evening of the
careful manner In which the porson of tho present
Prince is guarded. I was returning, in oompany with
Dr. Long, of England, a well known Oriental scholar,
and Mr. Meissncr, the accomplished assistant
librarian at Belgrade, from a call on tho ex
Minister of Finance, MiJatowico (a man of un
common energy and taiant), and wo found the
pavement In tho street so very bod that we clam
bered on to tho narrow sidewalk, which was s little
hotter, only a short distance from ono of the gateways
of the palace. Instantly a soldier on guard at the gate
cried "Haiti" and naturally enough we halted. He
thon made us leave tho sidewalk and again lake tho
middle of the street, crying out?so said my com
panions?"What do you want that you oome so near I"
We laughed, which drow forth a load and angry throat,
but wo proceeded homeward without farther advonturo.

FURTHER EVIDENCE OF CORBUPTIOH?A DAROE
PROPORTION OF THE CONSTITUENCY B.UD TO
BE PURCHASABLE. ,
[From the London Standard, October 7.]
Th* Commissioner* continued their inquiry thi*
Mr. J. W. Gilbert, Conservative agent, being recalled,
stated that he did not caution any of the voters em
ployed In the election that if they voted they would be
guilty of a misdemeanor. He was not aware of any
outstanding accounts on either side. The conservative
bill of costs for the petition against Mr. Tillett had not
been sent in, because of the diiflculty of getting an ap
pointment during the long vacation for the purpose of
taxation, but the bill would be lodged next week. It
was all perfectly in order.
William Hook, landlord of the Old Friends Tavern, 1b
Der street, put on twenty five men on the liberal side
for two days at tho last election. They wcro paid 2a
6d. per day, and were employed for the purpose of pro
tecting the band iu the procession.
Mr. .1 Wutten Brown, a magistrate and a conserva
tive in polities, expr< hsed an opinion that S.Oou of tho
111,000 voters in the constituency were Corruptible, and
tliut so long as the "residuum" wero allowed to voto
there would be no pure election in Norwich, unless the
existing system wus entirely swept away. An election
might be fairly fought for ?2,000, hut ho did not
i accept tho estimate of one witness that ?500
| would bo suilloicnt; did not believe that
i If tlie expenditure was limited tho corruptibto
| section would start a third eandidato. If both parties
I could agree to an understanding to avoid corruption,
i and to prosecute ulI who resorted to it, no matter on
j which side they might be found, perhaps special legls
! lation would not he necessary; but still tie thought it
would lie an advantage ev< n then to get rid of tho prcs
, cut system. It was exceedingly creditable to Mr. Tillett
i that ho had proposed to work his election without
j agents, its he stall d by Mr. Smith yesterday, but, as tho
Commission) rs hadlieard, his supporters would not per
I mil in in to do it.
Mr. Stevens, the liberal agent, was again examined,
and explained how it was that Gardner, the rag mer
chant. had a special committee room in 1874. lie was
an outsider, und directions were given to tho ward
managers in tho Seventh ward to ki ep him out of tho
committee room, and then he engaged one of his own.
They were not responsible for that. Believing that in
1874 too many persons hud been employed, ho gave ex
tra cautions to the ward managers at tli i last election,
i saying, "No more eats than will catch mice''?moaning
; that tie v would ha\ i no more men thnn could have
work to do. Ho still thought the managers, although
the employment had been exorssive, had not tried to
get votes di: honestly There wero no outstanding ac
counts so far is ho know, lie believed he should havo
no further claims.
Samuel H. Wil y, publican and shopkeeper, deposed
that a few days beforo tho laid election Mr, Coaks sent
for him and asked him to get voters to vote for Stras
sey and Hudiilestou, or for C'olman and Httddleston, to
keep "ihat ieilow Tulett oul." He promised to pay
whatever expense witness might incur. Witness bought
some twenty or thirty men, who looked like bricklayers
or laborers, at f>s. per head. They said they would not
I voto unless paid. Mr. Coak said aftefwurd- that lio
appreciated what had been dune, and would make it all
right by and by.

Fiftieth Anniversary of. the Iron
Horse at Darlington.
The Lord Mayor of London and Other
JOSEPH PEASE'S STATUE.
Contrasting tlio Past witli
DARLINGTON, Eng., Sept. 28, 1875.
There Is something very appropriate about the quiet,
ordorly way in which the descendants of the uuob
trusive and persistent Inventors to whom the world
owes so much have celebrated tho fiftieth anniversary
of the opining of tlio first railway in England. In a
mauner much like unto that in which William Bonn de
veloped tho resources of Pennsylvania havo theso
Quaker peoplo of Durham opened up any quantity of
"new worlds" to civilization. They began in a de
termined way; they earned their cause through Parlia
ment by the most perslstout effort; they surveyed tho j
railway routes ucross tho meadows of Durham and j
Yorkshire at tho point ol tho bayonet, or, to speak
more accurately, at tho point of the pitchfork, for thero
is no evidence to show that the worthy Friends resorted
to any other offenslvo or defensive weapons. Tho theo
ries of Stephenson and Pease wero laughed at; tho ac
tual work was carried on over all sorts of obstacles and
through all manner of legal diillculties. Tho first rail
was laid whilo tho wliolo of England looked on and
laugned. The last spike was driven in the presence of
a gaping, grinning gang. Tho first engine started in
full view or a great multitude, more than half of whom
had come "to sco tho machine break down."
Stephenson and Pease regarded tho Journey to Stock
ton as a remarkable achievement ol human Ingenuity.
Yet both were laughed at wbon they prophobied that a
spcod ton miles an hour could bo obtained. 1 astidious
gentlemen of leisure, liko Mr. Buskin, of those days,
insisted that tho introduction of steam would destroy
all tho romance in this life, and that thoy would rather
spend four or five days in a stago coach between
Darlington and London than to be transported over the
distance in five hours. It is worthy of remark, how
ever, that Just such men were tho first to accommodate
themselves to tho new mode of travelling just as soon
as it was fairly introduced. From this experiment has
grown up a better commerce, a better civilization,
and with It has followed progressive journalism. The
railway and the newspaper wero soon allied, as tho
former became the means of bringing to the latter that
strangely Indefinite articlo of merchandise called
"news," and then again of spreading the printod pages
In which tne work of tho news gatherer was utilized.
Tho electric telegraph has greatly trenched upon this
branch of tho railway's occupation, but tho introduc
tion of lightning expresses for tho distribution of tho
information which tho telegraph has gathered together
from tho north, east, west and south has become a fea
ture and necessity of modern Journalism. So it will
ho seen that to tho railway journalism owes too great
a debt to cast It off at this late day. All will recall tho
famous races of tho New York newspaper press to ob
tain and print the first news from Kuropo at tho time
war was threatened between England and America on
tho Oregon question, and how on ouo occasion tho loco
motive dashed over the Long Island Railroad faster than
it had ever done before or has ever dono siucoy bearing
tho news to tho Herald, distancing by hours all Its
rivals. Mr. Frederick Hudson graphically tells tho
story of that ride, which in more than one respect was
fully us Important an event and as well worthy tho pen
of a poet as Sheridan's gallop from Winchester.
PREJUDICE AND IlIQOTKY.
The crowd of working peoplo and farmers who camo
together at Darlington on the occasion of the inaugura
tion of tho railway, now fifty years ago, formed an
assembly very strangely in.contrast with the solcct and
educated body of engineers and railway men who are
here on this occasion. Many. Indeed most, of thoso
who, on September 27, 1825, saw Stephenson's cngino
travel at tho wonderful rate of fifteen miles an hour
wero unwilling to concede any great success, lailuro
would havo been their delight, calamity their choicest
morsol of sweet revenge. To-day there are In Darling
ton the most experienced railway men in Europo, many
of whom have watched tho growth of the iron monster
from infancy to Its prcsc.nt perfoction. In just as great
contrast, too, Is likely to bo the centennial celebration
fifty years hence, when, probably, expresses will mako
tho Journey between London and Darlington in two
hours, just as thoy now do in flvo. Then no man will
bo living to speak of tho timo when railways did not
exist. For this reason thero is much greater Interest
attaching to tho present occasion than there possibly
can be to any future one. There aro present many living
witnesses of tho early struggles against silly prejudice
and conservative bigotry.
THE JOURNEY PROM LONDON
was made by way of tho Great Northern Railway route,
through tho most uninteresting piece of country I havo
yet encountered in the whole of England. The ride
to York, through Peterborough and Doneaster, Is so
devoid of picturesque scenery that tho tired passenger
counts tho time as wasted when ho was not asleep.
About an hour suffices to transport us from York to
Darlington?still to'tho northward. This quiet Quaker
town has been very much maligned by guido books;
but it stands on a lovel platoau overlooking tho sur
rounding country and made up of a succession of well
paved aud closely built streets. Tho town is very com
pact; and although tho last census gave it a
population of 27,720 it hardly equals in tho
extent of Its "ground plan" our Now York
Stato villages of 4,000 or 5.000. Yet hero
aro located the cngino works aud the repair shops of
tho Northeastern Railway. Tho dwelling houses are,
fur the most part, of cleun looking red and yellow brick,
but here and there crops out an old house dating far
behind the days of railways and railway jubilees. For
more than a week every liouso owner and tenant has
boon preparing lor this" event. No household so poor
hut has Invested largely In Chineso lanterns and gas
fittings for transparencies; no street so shabby but its
residents bavc decorated It whh arches of green and
streamers of blazing red bunting. Tho whole was a
gala occasion such as the qutet peoplo of Darlington
never dreamod of in the olden time.
THE GROWTH OP T1IK LOCOMOTIVE.
It was an eminently proper and fitting Idea for tho
Stockton ami Darlington Railway Company to make a
collection of ull tho iortna of locomotive engines, aud to
have thorn on exhibition on this occasion. As tho pto
neer company thoy already possessed the first locomo
tive, and thoy had plenty of the latest patterns on hand.
Through tho kindness of the secretary ol the company
I, in company with a London correspondent, was ud
mitted to u private view of this interesting collection
on Sunday. Thero aro twenty-six locomotives sent lor
exhibition by various railway companies of Grout Brit
ain, which show at a glutico the several gradations
through which the iron burse has passed since the first
attempt of George Stephenson. Side by sido
stand tho historical "Locomotion" and "No. 1,068,"
tho former small and apparently fragile, the latter
the very newest, strongest, healthiest of his rare. It
has often been a matter of curiosity to me how tho In
ventor should have struek upon the right shape lor she
boiler, the position of the driving wheels aud the loca
tion of the engineer. By tho right shape I must bo
ondcrsiood to mean tho .shnpo which It has been deemed
best to retain through fifty years of trial. Why tho
first locomotive holler w as not spherical or squaro ptob
nbly iio living man can exactly explain. Sir Isaac
Newton, who probably planted the seed from which
locomotlvos grew, priqioscd to construct a spherical
steam generator on whouls, witb a seat for a passenger
In frout aud a long pipe or tuho extending from tho
boiler behind. Tho escape of tho stooin from this pipe
would, ho hold, propel the carriage In nn opposite direc
tion In manner similar to the recoil of a cannon.
Btephcnson's great idea was tho utilization of tho cylin
der and tho crauk movement.
Here. then, under one roof was ocularly told tbo
whole story of the steam engine as applied to railways.
In one place stands a locomotive winch lias travelled
the amazing dtstauce of 3150,000 miles. Whether this
will exceed tho number of miles traversed by .los
Wood's famous engine, whoso reputation as a last
traveller has reached this sids of the water, 1 am uu
able to stato.
THE EIRST ENGINE
stands near her. She Is mounted on a lied of masonry,
so that her wheels do not touch the rails?tho original
lUh bellied mils of cast Iron, fastened by oak treenails
to stone blocks embedded In ballast. Thero were no
"tics" in those old times, and it Is no longer marvel
loos that the gauge was sometimes lost,
so that "Locomotion" wont off tho line. Tlmse
osk treenails, too, It was found expanded whon
saturated by tbo rain, and Invariably split tho stone
blocks, to George Stephenson's sad discomfiture. The
extreme length of engine and tender Is 24 feet; bur
weight In working order u tons. The pressuro of
steam permitted to the square inch was 24 pounds, and
her four wheels, which aro connected by welded metal
between the Uivkfik we 4 Ret Ml UlWMfiM ISMtfUj.

In the coal mine* before Stephenson was l>orn, aud, '
strange to say, it la the gauge retained on the great j
majority of the railways of the world.
TUB Lamm BM.litfU LOCOMclTIVa.
As I before said, by the side of old Locomotion,
for contrast's sake, stand* one of tho very latest en
gines out ol the shop. What a startling growth In both
' slzo and strength! No. 1,00k is over 44 feet long;
| her weight is 111 n tona, tho pressure of Hicntn to the
square inch permitted la from loo to 240 pounds: the
| fore wheels are four feet high and tho ??drivers" six
| feel. Tho tender, 14 feet long, carries 2,40o gallons of
water and seven tons of fuel, aud she has done a I
mile a minute with six passenger cinches. She cost
fll.'JOO, which seems a large sunt by the side of her 1
?400 grandparent, Locomotion.
Recommencing our survey and tatting the locomo
tives in regular chronological order, we next encounter
the Inviclo, an engine bunt in Isjo aud sent for ex
hibition by the South Kasturn Railway Company. The
InvHSta was the lirsl engine built with the cylin
der on the side like the American locomotives.
Strange as it may appear, all Knglish locomotives have
the cylinders underneath the boiler, and power is com
municated to tile driving wheels by cranks on the
axles. Tho connecting rods on the outside uud the
double "drivers," do not appear to be in use any
where in Englund.
Tho Auckland, built by Timothy Ilackworih, in
1811U, bt the next in order. She waa "guaranteed to do
fifteen miles an hour." Six wheels, connected by rods,
are used In this engine, and In some places tho strain
on the crunk pins uppearod to bavo been very great.
Tho Dart, constructed in 1S40, has larger wheels
and was warranted to travel thirty miles an hour, feho
is In active service on the Stockton and Darling i >u line
to this hour, and tho samo whoels and gear are still em
ployed, tho boiler only having been renewed. There
are some engines of elaborate workmanship from
r I?,,tm named
the best shops ol Liverpool?-one named
mo neat soups ,
the Huddersfleld being a largo locomotive in which
steel tiros and a copper soon-circular firebox with
dome top are introduced. The rnammoth engine of the
lot Is the Colossus, sent for exhibition by the Ureal
Northern, whoso driving whoels are eight loot three
inches in diumeter. She is "good" lor sixty miles an
hour with any ordinary passenger train, and makes
this time in every ouo of tho trips of the Edinburgh
mail, otherwise known as Ibo Flying Sculcjiniau.
THB FIRST DAY
of the Jubilee opened unpropitiously, but before nine
o'clock the skies were bright aud all tho world looked
fair and smiling. Darlington was rich in (lugs, festoons
of flowers, strings ol lamps, gas devices, crown3,
wreaths, escutcheons, triumphal arches and tho thou
sand and oue indications of happy hearts and homes.
Special trains began to arrive beiuro daylight, and at
noon not less than 40.000 visitors wcro added to tho
population of Darlington.
A procession of the railway employes was formed
after noon, l'hero were loyal sons of Vulcan and sons
of temperance?whether loyal or not was to lie be t
proved by tapping a keg of whiskey or beer. Tho pro
cession then proceeded to the railway station to meet
Lord Mayor Stone, of London, who arrived with all bio
suite and tho four traditional trumpeters. The Lord
Mayor of London was welcomed by the Mar
quis of Londonderry, the Marquis of Blpon,
Lord Fcvcndiain, Lord Wunlock, tho lion.
M'aldogravo Leslie, the Dean of Durham and Sir II. and
Lady iiavelock. The procession then started back to
the market place to witness the unveiling of a statue
to Ihe lato Joseph l'easu, M. I'., who championed the
railway in Parliament, and was tiio first Quaker ever
sent to that body. The houses fronting upon tliu
square were crowded. Here the Duke of Cleveland
Joined the throng, and, descending from his carriage
stepped up to tho monument, said?"I usk that this
staiuo be formally unveiled." Tho statue was then laid
hare amid tho wildest expressions ot Joy. The Duke of
Cleveland followed in a very appropriate speech, and
closid by presenting tho Statue, on behalf of the sub
scribers, io the town ot Darlington. Aldorman Luck

man of about Ulty years of age and is in modern cos
tumo. Ho stumts holt upright, his left land resting by
his side and ids right arm thrust iuto his waistcoat and
across his breast, iu tho attitudo familiar to him when
he was about to make a hit in oue of those manly,
direct speoches for which ho had acquired a name. His
head is bare and the hair is brushed back in a defiant
style. The rugged lineaments of the lace, tho deter
mined stare, tho genuine English cut of the whiskers,
the very paletot uud tho old-la.-liioued seal hanging
down from under his vest, are all characteristic of
the man as he bore himself in life, and the like
ness?which was taken from a picture painted from a
photograph?is so good that tho wonder is that so
admirable a counterfeit presentment could bo undo
by a sculptor who had never met him lu the flesh. The
statuo is elovutcd on a square pedestal with a sqimro
' baso; tho upper portion is of red Aberdeen granite,
: polished, wlili bronce panels, and tho lower of gray
granite unpolished. The panels are adorned with
j hassl-relldvi, illustrating remarkable phases in tho
career of tho dccoaeed. On one ho is shown in the
| House of Commons, talking to Lord l'aluierston and
j surrounded bv a group of members. The likenesses of
Sir Francis Burden. "Joe" Hume aud others can bo
distinctly recognized. In another, illustrative of his
efforts in tho cause of education, a number ol Sunday
school children at class are clovorly reproduced. The
third panel is devoted to his commercial and manufac
turing labors, and railway engines, ships and other
emblems of progress are exhibited, and in the fourth,
which is tho most artistic of all. u number of emanci
pated negro slaves nro powerfully depicted, rendering
| thanks to iboso who struck oil' their fetters. Tho
! design is by Ueorgo A. Luwson, the sculptor of the
