"Tiid New Orleans Exposition as it la."
Tbe public are aware of the relations Maj
Jed Hoteu kiss sustains to the interests Virgin
la has at the great Exposition now in fall tide
of success at New Orleans. He is United States'
Assistant Commissioner for tbe State, and to
bis untiring efforts we are chiefly Indebted for
the fine disply the Old Common wealth wll I
make there In the departments to which he
was assigned. He has returned home for a few
days, and kindly consented to lecture last Frt
day night for tbe benefit or tbe Young Men'
Christian Association, taking for his themi
the subjects indicated above, having been then
perfecting arrangements for his State, and at
the opening ceremonies.
In referring to the lecture, but a few items
upon which the speaker touched can have h
place now, and the reference Is wholly in
adequate to express the interest which fol
lowed the Major as he glided along through Its
course. He always makes his illustrations
clearly portray the subjects he has In hand,
and by his skillful touch on tbe black board
c.A is accomplished which the instructor can
impart by speech and drawings.
Tbe vast area occupied, the style and extent
of the buildings, tho grounds, the avenues and
walks, the parks, shrubbery, flowers and fruits,
with the wonderful displays of nature, genius,
and skill, coming, as contributions, from all
parts of tbe world, presented a picture which
the human eye never before feasted upon.
No person could imagine the Intensity of in
terest as it was exhibited in the main building
when the Exposition was declared open bj
the Director-General, Mr. Burke, followed by
the response of President Arthur coming by
the electric current.
Tbe Orchestra and the bands are features
which attract immensely. The band of the
6th Mexican cavalry, 70 pieces and a piper,
charms the vast throngs ot persons listening
to the volumes of rich music, and tbe piper as
be imitates every bird that sings a note In his
bower and forest home.
From the center of the city to the grounds is
9 miles by steamers, and 7 miles by railway.—
Tbe grand St. Charles Avenue extends the en
tire distance, and In addition to tbe lawn and
floral decorations and beauties, in place by or
der of the Exposition management, thecitj
and its residents have vied in efforts to present
the entire scene a living garden of fruit, shade
grass, and flowers. Contributions from the
South-lands and the Tropics, In ail their rich

The undersigned committee to whom was re
ferred a petition from a number of our citizen
ttx-payers. praying your honorable body to In

streets Ac, beg leave t» report, that after as
minute an Investigation as could be well made

most practicable methods of gas making (for
this locality) are by what Is known as the
bituminous coal process, and the water gas
From data kindly furnished us by Mr. J. H.
Knowles, for thirty-odd years past the efficient
Superintendent or the gas works of Richmond
and from estimates fumishett by tire Tanner

he plans and specification submitted here
with, Tbe cost of all the buildings, according
to the same plans, would ba about $2,000
There will be needed for street mains say
1000 feet or S inch cast Iron pipe at 78c. per foot
laid and 21,000 ft of 3 inch o. 1. pipe»t 35c. per

Exclusive of the cost of lot on which the plant
would bs made, the outlay would approximate
The cost or material necessary to manufac

Estimating the entire cost of the works at
125,000, we have an annual outlay as follows:

Cost of prod uci ng 7,300,000 cv. ft. gas 5.300

From this it will appear that coal gas can be
made at, say, $1.00 per 1090 ft, when made at tbe
rate of 20,000 cv, ft. dally.
The city is now using 600,0i)0 onbio It. of gas
annually, and allowing iju.ooo cubic feet for

A Horrible Crime.
On the summit of tbe mountain at Rockfish
Gap, and near tbe dividing line between Au
gusta and Nelson counties, a horrible crime
was perpetrated on the evening of Monday,
29th or December. The parties, one dead and*
the other under arrest, who figured in the t rag
edy had their homes ln Nelson. During the
afternoon ot tbe day named, Jane Harris, a
colored woman, supposed to be about 4) years
of age, left her home going west, and calling at
the house of other colored persons Just beyond
the top of the mountain, met there another
colored man who lived ilill further on, who re
quested her to take a lamp and leave it at his
house. In the meantime Jobu Jordan, anoth
er colored man, coming up, proceeded along
the Journej the woman. They were ob
served together bj ,Hher parties, one of whom
heard them in . .vorsatlon near the spot
where the woman v7as subsequently found. —
The man wbo had rt. quested the woman to car
ry the lamp resetting borne and no lamp hav
ing been left, Marco was made tor her the next
morning, and tbe parties passing a ravine
heard guttural '-..- ..1, and going to the spot,
the woman was found in a deplorable condi
tion. Marks of violence were on ber
neck as If cboklng had been perpetrated, as
well as scars upon one of her legs, and her
oletbing mutilated and pressed into vbe mud.
Near whe; c she n »s lying, were marKs on the
ground which Indicated that one person had
resisted Ota -rtolenee of another. The woman
was unable to ■■■■.. ;'■'- when found, and death
ensued soon thereafter.
The alarm was gl yen, and Sergeant S. A
Ferguson, of Waj! «s!;oro', upon the warrant
of Justice Jocoi. Coj 11 r, arrested Jordan.
In the meant tne, 11 is authorities o! Nels- n j
receiving inform at lon, hastened to the place. >
and after examiuu the body, and testimony
being taken before !■ oroner's July, a verdict
was rendered that tbe i*ath of the woman was
caused by apoplexy so| erinduced by strangu
lation, which was tbe opinion ot Dr. Williams. |

examined tbe body,
Meade F. White, Esq., Commonwealth's At

last Monday to the vines of the tragedy, and
investigated the case wilch was one of cou

the. "jooj-y of ,-ir.aeut; hence the
machinery's '. ■-, elos.-ly home to the
people, -and de 3 tbe personal interest
, of every citize lie subject.
The present 1 Commissioners were
appointed, by t. te County Judge, to
hold for one ye: •<-. In May next, the
people of the d. . ■ will elect commission

each commissio * ill be the district Su

by various systems not pi fins, to better the
county roads. .. Fror: t.«esd various trials,
something may be evolvri which will prove
helpful to all. Therefore, let opponents
and friends of the new Hw, for our county,
unite in giving it a p"j*ent trial. Mean
while, if any one l is able to prepare a better
law than those wbich ha-e been considered,
let him present it for consideration through
the press, or in cpunty meeting, where all
can be present tfind heard. The county
roads are a fruitfeil subject for discussion.
Let tbe several ylans be fully ventilated
and understood. "he debating clubs in the
country are frequently at a loss for a subject.
Here is a theme on yhich every farmer has
something to say. .qf, on trial, the new law
prove a failure, the" Board of Supervisors
may remit us under he general road law,

The Northwestern farmers who have keen
reerving their wheat Tor better prices, it Is
said cannot much longer hold on, as necessity
will compel them to yield. This will consid
erably increaso the grain movement, but will
probably not enlarge the bulk ln our own
ports, as all accounts agree that foreign ship
m mi» will be more active. These remarks ap
ply also to corn. A small advance in wheat
ruled in the large exchanges last week.
