WEDNESDAY, . November 27, 1S72. I.OOKOFT rOB THE MHOXOTIYF- For a period of more than twenty years the citizens of this county, and notably of the eouthern portion of it, labored to induce the construction of a Railroad through its borders. Our large mineral resources and more particularly our valuable coal fields were pointed out and urged upon the attention of capitalists, and article up on article amounting to volumes, were w ritten and published in this journal. Another corporation stood like a gi ant in our path, and forycars the struggle was long and weary, and apparently hopeless. At last success crowned the prlouged contest, and loss than two brief years since the Pittsburgh and Connellsrillc road be came an accomplished fact. Many and great arc the changes wrought within this period ; development and prosperity have followed rapidly on the track of the iron horse, and now it seems as if there was to be a strug gle for the mere transportation of that mineral wealth, the very cxibtance of which they eo blindly ignored. Pro jected railroads to reach the coal fields of Somerset county are as plentiful as lerric8 in mid-summer, and moun tains arc to be pierced and chasms to be bridged, to secure that wealth w hich for more than twentj- years lit erally begged from door to door, pe titioning for recognition and accept ance. Here are three of the projects, which we find in the journals coming to our table, w ithin the space of tLree davs. The Fhipnensburg Sentinel says : We learn that a few days ago, a corps of engineers appeared in thai place to make a survey of a projiot-cd route from the coal fields of Somerset county and the coal regions of Broad Ton to Philadelphia. The road is be ing built by the autboity of an act of the Legislature of Pennsylvania, in corporating the "State Line and Juni ata Railroad Company," approved April 5, 1870, together with supple mental enactment of May 18, 1871, and March C, 1872. The company intend to construct and equip the main line of its railroad, extensions of the main line and branches of the same, lying along and east of Licking creek, iu Fulton county, The main line commencing at a point on the Maryland line, where the said line crosses the Licking creek, in the southwest corner of Franklin count, and by way of Licking creek valley, and the extensions of the said main line eastwardly through the counties of Huntingdon, Fulton, Franklin Adams, York, Lancaster, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, Philadelphia and Bucks counties, at a point on the Delaware river at or nearMorrisville, in 6aid county, ia length about one hundred and ninety-eight miles, as now located bv the compauv. Cum-! ocnana county is not mentioned in the route, j et Sbippensburg is marked in the line upon the map. From that place the line takes an easterly course through Pine Grove and thence to York. It is the purpose of the com pany to construct a double track, narrow-gauge (three f-et) railroad from the bituminous coal fields in Somer set county, and the seini-bituminous coal regions known as "Broad Top," in Huntingdon, Bedford and Fulton couuties to Philadelphia. The main line, with its branches, w ill be about twa hundred and twenty-five miles in length. This road wiil reach the vast fields of coal and iron deposits,! west of the Tuscarora mountains, by a shorter and cheaper route than ' now exists. Besides the mineral dep osits in the localities above mention ed, the entire country traversed by this railroad is the richest agricultur al district and the most densely pop ulated in the State. The company expect to build the road on a loan of $4,000,000, secure!) by first and only mortgage, at the rate of seven per cent. jer annum, payable in gold semi-annually, clear "of State and United States taxes, on the first days of April and Octoler. Then comes our contcmporarv the Cumberland Daily Xews of the 25th with the following information re garding a project that has been moot ed for some time. A gentleman just from New York city informed us yesterday that it has been determined to extend the West ern Maryland Railroad to the Mey ers' mills coal fields, instead of to Cumberland. The route has- not been definitely determined, but it is supposed it w ill run almost directly from HagerstOwn to Meyers' Mills, departing from the line from Hagers town to Cumberland at a point some miles east of our city, probably in the vicinity of FlintstonC Daniel Drew, the great capitalist from New York, w ho is largely interested in the Can ton Works, of Baltimore, is said to be pushing the enterprise, and our infor mant seems to be under the impres sion that the work w ill be speedily commenced and vigorously prosecu ted. Wc arc of courc unable to say how much foundation there is in the re port we have noted, but iu view of several publications of the same pur port which have lately appeared in the Hagcrstown Mail it apjtcars as if there might be something in it. If so, it wm lc rather unfortunate for Cumberland. The object in carrying the road to Meyers' Mills :s twofold first, to secure a good coal depet ; second, to avoid the large hills near Cumberland. Both circumstances are against us, and if the road is not originally brought here wc think that the "branch" to Cumberland vaguely spoken of will never exist And here is what the Johnstown Tribune has to say regarding that - slow moving, but certain to be ac complished purpose, of reaching our coal and iron fields from that noint: Mr. Wm. X. Allen of Philadelphia, in charge of a corps of engineers commenced the survey of the route for the railroad from Johnstown to Somerset on the first of last April, pursuant to resolujion of the Board of Directors elected by the stockhold ers, and on the last week in Septem ber completed the work. They loca ted the road from Johnstown to Stoystown, and ran experimental lines from Stoystown to Somerset and from Stoystown to Berlin, it has not yet been decided by the stockholders which route will be taken from Stoys town. They found a very practica ble route with a comparatively light grade, the maximum being only 49 feet to the mile, while the maximum on the Pennsylvania Railroad is ui w ards of 80 foct The distance to Strrrtown by tha route selected w! at the old 23V miles. It commences canal basin and runs on the bed of the old feeder above the upper end of trie cemetcry.ana crosses iuu imw -runtlv to near the tenement house of Geo. W. Osborne on bis larm ; then follows the west side of i lie creek to above E. A. Viekroy's farm, from which point they have surveyed two routes to Kring's Mills, one of the routes to cross to the cast side of the river, and the other to remain on the west side and run past the old Bens creek furnace property to Kring's Mills, then cross the river and follow it, passing near Faust's Mills, Davids, and Hooversville, to Stoystown. The experimental lines run from Stoystown to Somerset and from Stovstown to Berlin. The onlv avail able line to Somerset is on the line of the Stony Creek to Mostoller's Mills, then un Well's Creek past Friedens- burg, crossing the dividing ridge at, the Summit, near Eh tuppa. ana thence down to Somerset, where con nection is made with the Somerset and Mineral Point Railroad. The whole distance from Johnstown to the main street of Somerset is 36 miles. The line from Stoystown to Berlin follows the Stony Creek, past Shauks ville, to the headwaters of the creek, at Berlin, the whole distance from Johnstown to Berlin being BS miles. Near Berlin connections can be made with the Buffalo Valley Railroad, a branch from the Connellsville Rail road. The distance from Somerset to the main line of the Connellsville Road is 9 miles, and from Berlin 8 miles. The distance from where the Berlin branch connects with the Connells ville Road, at Garrett, to Pittsburg is 108 miles ; and from where the Som erset Branch connects with the main line of the Connellsville Road, at Mineral Point, is 100 miles. The route has been a very tedious one to survey, owing to the unoven ness of the "country and the great 2-rowtb f laurel "and underbrush. Frequently as many as four or five axiuen were employed, and these on several occasions were able to clear away the underbrush a distance of only three-quarters of a mile a day. But the suveys are now all complet ed and in the hands of the directors, and hopes arc entertained that the building of the road, work on which will be first done on this end, wiil 1c commenced in the spring. That all three of these roads will be prosecuted to completion, just as is now contemplated, wc do not antici pate, but that each of the projects will be substantially carried out ad mits of no doubt in our mind. The demand for fuel and ores is daily aud hourly on the increase, and the ex- haustlcss fields of both, in this county can no longer be overlooked. The lately discovered South Hampton mines, the Elklick and Meyers' mills, the Berlin, the Ursina, the Stoney Creek and other lesser and partially unexplored coal fields, and the almost continuous ore veins throughout the five hundred and fifty square miles w ithin the limits of the county, are a prize well worth struggling for, and it looks at last as if Somerset county, was on the high way to the develop ment and realization of her immense mineral wealth. On Thursday last there was a per fect flood of proposed amendments to the Constitution, poured into the Convention at Harrisburg and laid on the table to be referred to the ap propriate committees when appoint ed. Among others, the following were offered by Wm. J. Baeu Esq., of this county. "Any person holding offices under the laws of this State who, except in payment of his legal salary; fees or perquisites, receives, or consents to receive, directly or indirectly anything of value or of personal advantage or promise therefor for performing or omitting to perform any official act, with the express or implied under standing that his official action or om isson to act, is to ltc in any degree in fluenced thereby shall be deemed guil ty of felony, and on conviction thereof shall be punished by imprisonment at hard labor in one of the penitentiaries of the State for a term not exceeding five years, or by a fine not exceeding five thousand dollars, or both, in the discretion of the court. Also that the Constitution be amended as follows: That "iu all trials for libel, both civil and criminal, the truth, when published with good motives and for justifiable ends, shall be a sufficient defence. Also, that the Constitution be amended as follows: No divorce shall be granted in this State except by the judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction, and for no other cause than adultery. Also, a resolution providing that no costs shall be paid by a person ac cused on a bill returned ignoramus, nor on acquittal by a jury. Also, that trial by jury in all cases in which it has heretofore been used shall remain inviolate, except that in suits before aldermen and justices of the peace, provisions may be made. by general law for trial by a jury of less than twelve men ; but a jury trial may Ikj waived by the parties iu all civil suits. Also, a resolution to enable a debt or, being the head of a family, his wife or widow, to enjoy the comforts of life, and rear, educate and mantain his or her children, there shall be ex cempt from levy and sale for the pay men of all debts and liabilities here after contracted (taxes excepted) projK-rly of the value of $1,000, which may consist of real rr personal projt erty or of either, and the same being set aside as provided by law, shall not-be sold or conveyed, pledged or pawned during the joint life of husband and wife without their joint assent, ascertained in such way as may be prescribed by law, and all contracts waiving the benefit of the exemption hereby created are hereby declared to be void: provide J, That the lien for purchase money of real estate as against the real estate sold, shall not' be impaired. The Daily Cleveland Herald says: Ex-Geveriior Curtin has gone over to the enemy both body and breech es. In the Pennsylvania Constitu tional Convention he votes steadily with the Democrats, his last perfor mance being a vote against the elec tion of the Republican nominee for Sergeant-at-arms, because he was a colored man. The Curtin has fallen, indeed ! Kentucky was to give Greeley and Brown a majority ranging from CO.OOO to 80,000. It did give them just 7.C90 majority, aud tho great de feated may well exclaim, "O, what a fall wag there, my countrymen !" I Secretary Boctweli. has reitera- ted his determination to retire from ! the head of the Treasury Department after the fourth of March, and as Sen ator Wilson will then take the chair of the President of the Senate, as Vice President of the United States, it is confidently expected Boutw'cll will be chosen to take bis place. As Secretary of the Treasury, Mr. B. has done much, very much, to strengthen the administration with the people, and give it credit at home and abroad. In the Senate he would rank with the ablest men there, and add to his distinguished services to the country. The friends of the passage of a gen i. eral local option law, by the next L . propose to hold a con , - (1i.Wnia intprcStPd in the passage of such a law, in Pittsburgh on the 10th of December next. The plan of the temperance element ia to bring organized action to bear on the Legislature, . so as to indues n com pliance with its wishes, and remit to cverv community in the State, for its own decision, the ucstion wheth cr intoxicating beverages shall be sold within its limits. Save' one, these -aro all practical much needed reforms, but in our judg ment, Mr. Baer's proposition to re turn to the old Mosaic law on di vorce is a mistake. The loosencsB with which the marriage tics are now ossumcd and dissevered, is a crying evil that should be remedied, and while divorces should not be granted for trivial causes, yet inhuman and brutal treatment as often disclosed in our courts, should be sufficient cause The Republicans of Indiana have done themselves honor, and paid deserved tribute to a faithful officer in deciding to return the Hon. Oliver P. Morton to the United States Senate. It will be a matter of congratulation so the country that hisemiucntscrvices have there been recognized. - Uxper the new revenue law, the force of internal revenue assessors and collectors, bcinj now 230 of each das, will be reduced to 80 by the first of J.-nuary next The con solidation of the districts, to effect the reduction, will soon bo commenced The Philadelphia City Item says that lion.

The leading Democrats and assist ant Democrats of some of the south ern states, seeing, perhaps, that they are upon their last legs, arc endcav- orin? to make the most of their lease of power. Thus in Louisiana,- Assist ant Democrat Warmoth, who, w hile pretending to be a Republican for the purpose of using and betraying that party,' was so thoroughly denounced by Democrats as a thieving carpet bagger, has become exceedingly pop ular with them. He is the Boss Tweed of Democracy in Louisiana, where he is at present engaged in run ning a political counting machine for the counting out of Republicans re cently elected, and counting in those who wear his collar. 1 he courts have been appealed to for redress, but little greater fairness is to be expected from them, according to report, than from the courts of New York during the Tammany reign. The election of a United States Senator for six years, is the high game these unscrupulous men arc playing for. In Alabama, where the Democracy was palpably defeated, the desperate. Democratic officials have refused cer tificates to senators and representa tives elected to the legislature bv a fair vote duly certified by the election officers, and the Democratic secretary of state, who holds temporary power, has returned as elected, the defeated candidates of his defunct party in suf ficient number to elect a Democratic United States senator. In Barbour and Marengo counties, where this was done, the Republicans had a ma jority at the last three election, and it is well known that the colored vote which turned the scale in favor of the administration, was better organized and more thoroughly uuitcd in favor of the Republican candidates at the late election, than ever before. But this fact, together with the actual count of votes polled, did not restrain these reckles s Democrats from an at tempt to set at rought the decision of the ballot, for the purpose of clinging a little longer to the power that has departed from them through the vox jxtpuli. In Arkansas, the same tac tics of desperation are employed, and the object is the same, viz: the elec tion of an opposition United States senator. INVESTIGATION NEEDED. I am informed by parties here from Memphis, that Jeff Davis is as mad as a turtle over the result of the recent election. It is believed by those who ought to know, that he and Jeff Thompson have packed away some of the confederate gold for their special use. Jeff was always known as a greedy dog while in high office- here in Washington. Jeff Thompson, whose home is in Memphis, man aged to be suddenly absent just pre vious to the expose of his attempt to spread the cholera and incendiarism in the north during the war, and has rleen in Europe since that time. It would be a good idea for congress to institute an investigation into the dis position of that confederate gold. PHILADELPHIA APPOINTMENT. G. AV, Fairman, Esq., has just been appointed postmaster at Philadelphia, vice II. n. Bingham, resigned. He was assistant postmaster the next in grade of promotion, under tho civil service rules, and also naa the sup port oMIon. W. D. Kelly, Hon. Wm. 15. Mann and other influential Phila delphians. Mr. Truman was also press ed for the place by a number of Penn sylvania politicians, and some of his friends, it is rumored, intend to op pose the conhrmation of Mr. Fairman by the Senate. This ia probably a weak invention of the enemy, as Mr. Fairman is known to be qualified for the place in every respect NATIONAL RAILROAD. A series cf letters to Gov. Cooke, of this District, are now being pub lished by A. 13. Davis, Esq., of Mary land, in favor of building a national jair-line railway from Washington to j Harrisburg. Ho furnishes tho most cogent reasons for the building of a road from the natioual capital to this grand centre of the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. It certainly does seem strange that railway facilities should not be pushed out from the capital in all directions, and especially due north a few miles to this great railroad cen tre in the midst of agricultural wealth of untold value to our people. RECONSTRUCTION OP COMMITTEES. So far as can bo gathered from members and senators now here, aud others that have been heard from, it is quite apparent that the senate com mittees will be reconstructed, and as usual, the dominant party will coutrol the chairmanship of all the leading committees at the coming session. Messrs. Farnsworth, Blair and Bauks are all heads of important commit tees, and it ia said they will resign these positions at the opening of the sesion. Xo attempt will be made to remove them. - L. JM. Cnparalleled Ilerrloaac. . New York, November 20. The London Times of the 8th has the fol lowing account of a hurricane in Sicily, which destroyed the town of Halazzolo : There has been no instance of such a calamity within the memory of liv ing man. Xo earthquake ever caused so much destruction. There are houses ruined, houses fallen to the very ground, walls cleft from end to end, walls hanging outward as if to rest on adjoining houses; there are roofs t wholly swept away, tunken vaults, ' balconies torn from their places, windows and shutters either entirely carried off or hanging loose, frame walls, lamp-posts forced from their sockets, uprooted trees, and this is all one sees along the northeast side of the town. Xot a single house remains to which the whole roof and windows do not require thorough repairs. The streets are a mass of fragments and rubbish. The incidents of the disaster are so strange as to be almost incredible. Tbcrp was a store with twenty-five hectoliters of wheat, of which not a trace is anywhere to be seen. The books of the excise and of the land registry offices have vanished, and only their torn leaves have beeu found here and there at great distances. In one house all the copper kitchen utensils were blown through the roof; in another benches and heavy chests flew through the windows. The iron bars of one balcony are to be seen curled up one way, those of another twisted up another way. There is a pillar of a palace w hich has been moved forward one foot without breaking and stands up isolated all in one piece. 1 here is a wall ol another palace which has fallen back more than three feet without a crack. Here is a beam of one house which has thrust itself into another house. There is half of a bedstead the other half of which lies no one knows where. All thotile3 of one building are huddled together in one spot on the roof crushed and broken up as small as if they had been pounded. The rafters of another building are all bare ; the tiles have flown no one can see where. In a stable on the bare ground men are laying the bodies one by one as they are being dug out. Most of them are in their night dresses, having been crushed as they were quietly sleeping. Their features and forms are so disfigured that one cannot look at them without shuddering. Their nostrills, ears and mouths arc stopped up with earth. white dust has everywhere pierced through the skin. Here is the body of aman holding close to his heart a child, probably his own child. The skulls of both arc shattered. There are two young men in each other's arms, probably brothers ; ihe chests and backs of both are crushed. Near them is another youth covered with blood ; he was a clerk in a gov ernment office. He has his eye glass still stuck in his right eye, and was probably reading or writing when he was struck. There are some mutila ted past recognition ; others seem unhurt and look as if they were sleep ing. Without exaggeration one-third of the town is dismantled, and more than a thousand families are literallv without a home. About one thousand more have only one little corner of what was once their house to shelter them. The dead number thirty-two, seriously hurt about half a score. Boston's Third I'lrr. UosTON, November 20, 7 p. m. Fire has burst out in Hand & Avery's large printing house at the foot of Washington street, and the entire es tablishment will be destroyed. The adjoining buildings on Cornhill are threatened. A general fire alarm has been sounded, and the fire depart ments of Charlestown and Chelsea have been called upon. Another dispatch gives the follow ing particulars: Shortly before seven o clock this evening flames burst forth from the upper windows and roof of Hand fi Avery's extensive printing house, No. Cornhill, near the foot of W ashing- ton street 1 he flames shot up fun- odslv to a crcat bight, and a strong north wind earned showers of burn ing cinders over buildings on the eas terly side of Washington street and across State street In response to a general fire alarm the firemen were promptly on the spot, and the steam ers at once opened play from State and Washington streets, Cornhill and other points adjacent to the fire, and in thirty minutes the flames which threatened another great conflagra tion were entirely subdued and con lined to the limits in which they first broke out - 1 he general fire alarm and grand illumination caused by the shooting flames caused great commo tion, and immense crowds of excited people gathered from all parts of the city to the scene of the conflagration lhe military guard, which has been kept up since the great fire, were of important service, forming a cordon across streets and keeping back the crowd and giving the firemen ampl room for most efficient service. Hand & Avery were almost entirely burned out. They had one of the largest and best appointed book and job print ing establishments in New England, employing some two hundred 1 ands. Losses not yet ascertained. Hand & Avery estimate their loss at $ 2a0,000. Insured mostly in Bos ton offices. The following is a list of other losses, which are more or less insured, mostly in Boston offices: Abbott's bindery, $3,000 ; Adams & Baker's bindery, $8,000 ; Congrega tional Publishing Society, $40,000; Henry Hoyt, book publisher, $20,000 ; the Congreqationalid newspaper, $2,000, and building about $3,000. The fire originated in the press room of Hand & Avery. Mr. Spurgeon's sister is preaching at Willinghatn Cambridgeshire, Eng land, with such success that the po lice authorities there have expressed their thanks to her for effecting a de creaso in the number of criminal cases. ' Hing-nlar AtmoKphrrie Phenomena onirinl Report or theMljrnnl Service Observer. Washington, November 21 The following official report of the signal service observer stationed at Boston relative to the anetnonietical and other observations taken by himself during the fire, will be found of great interest a.l highly instructive. They clearly huw that the tire was attend ed with phenomena distinctly cy clonic. Boston, November 13. To the Chief Signal Officer of the Army, Washington, IK C. General: Iu reply to your tele graphic dispatch received this morn ing, directing mo to make a full re port of the meteoric phenomena at tending the recent great fire, I would respectfully say that the wind at this station during the progress of the fire varied from north-northwest to north, with a velocity of from five to nine miles per hour, weather being clear, cool and pleasant On approachinsr the fire on the north or windward side as close as the heat would allow, the indraught of air through the burning streets assumed the character of a brisk wind, probably sixteen or eigh teen miles per hour, while the heat was so intense as to cause sm ike, steam, Ac., to be carried up in spirals to a great elevation. On tho south or lee side induced currents of air were very strong, probably thirty or thirty-five miles per hour, carrying fire bodily to windward. This state of affairs appears to lo the reverse of the Chicago fire, where the strength of tho wind was suffi cient to overcome the induced strength and the fire burned to leeward. It appears as if high winds permitted the indraught to rise at a considera ble angle after reaching the fire, leav ing a large space of highly rarified air iu its front, inducing stronger cur rents to flow, which, meeting the in draught, gave a spiral or whirlwind form to the ascending current Dur ing the fire a flock of ducks passed at a great bight overhead, and the light reflected from their plumage made them appear as fire balls passing rap idly through the air. Many who saw them called them meteors, and likened them to balls of fire said to have been seen in the northwest during the great fire in that region. As an example of the great heat diffused, I would state that during the night I exposed a thermometer in the observatory to the full glare of the fire, when it rose nearly fivo degrees, although placed upwards of two thousand feet from the burning distric, to windward of! it -o other phenomena occurred; the barometer rose slightly, and the weather remained unchanged. I have the honor to be, General, very respectfnlly, your obedient ser vant, II. E. Cole, Observer Signal Service, U. S. A. Terrible Know Storm In Minnesota. Chicago, November 21. A spec ial from St. Paul, Minnesota, says that gloomy news may bo anticipa ted from the Minnesota track-layers on the extension of the Winona and St. Teters railroad. They were ap proaching the western State line at the rate of two miles daily, when the terrible storm of last Thursday night enveloped them and cut them off from all communication with the civilized world. The working force numbers over eight hundred men, and so san guine were their expectations that fa vorable weather would outlast No vember that no preparation was made to avoid the calamity which it is feared has befallen them. Only a small supply of provisions was kept ia store, for although one hundred miles from the telegraph, construc tion trains maintained regular commu nication with Sleepy Eye, the near est white settlement When intelli gence ofthe storm had reached Wino na, J. II. Stewart, General Superin tendent, started out with -two loco motives and a train of cars, but 60 heavy and deep were the snow drifts, and so intense the cold, that up to Saturday morning they had not pass ed New Ulm. There two additional locomotives were attached to the train and then taking on board ra tions for thirty days, and one hun dred and fifty men, besides material with which to fit up boarding accom modations in the cars, the train was again started, and a passage ivay was forced through drifts eight and ten feet deep, and even where tho snow did not exceed one foot in depth, so hard was it packed that recourse was had to shovels before advance could lie made. On Sunday the train had penetra ted twenty-five miles. In the mean time the storm had raged with a vi olence unprecedented, and w hen last heard from, on Tuesday night, the re lief train was stuck fast in the ever accumulating snow forty miles west of Sleepy Eye, and eighty miles short of the suffering track-layers. Yester day morning the Telegraph wires were down west of St. Peters, and nil communication was shut off. The latest reports from Arizona in the afternoon state that the wind had increased into a furious gale. For six days the storm has continued with unabated fury. The painful im pression created is that the men at the end of the track will actually starve before relief can reach them. No supplies are known to be accessi ble, for the lino is being constructed in advance of the Government sur veys far into the country, inhabited only by a few adventurous squatters and sickly Indians. A Ulff Swindle. New York, November 21. A special from Newport,' Rhode Island, says: The following swindling oper ation came to light in this city to night. About six months !tgo a mail called on Oliver Head, a wealthy broker of this city, and requested him Jo purchase $17,000 of Central Pacific railroad ten per cent, income bonds. Head told him that he would not purchase, but that he would sell them for bim for ono aud one-half percent The man consented, and Head imme diately forwarded them to Fisk & Hatch, New York, for them to sell for him. In due season Read received a telegram from Fisk & Hatch stating that they had -succeeded in disposing of them, and that they had placed the proceeds to his credit at a bank in that city. Thereupon Head iufornied his man, who by the way had failed to state his name, that he bad sold them and paid the man $14,500, after deducting his commission and that of Fisk & Hatch. This morning Head received word from Fisk & Hatch, stating that the bonds were counter feit, and they also sent him $f(,000 of them, requesting him to make good their loss. At noon he also received another letter from them with $1,000 more of the bogus bonds. This fraud was detected at the office of the rail road company in New York, when the coupons were presented for pay ment It is reported on good author ity that tho swindler was in New York yesterday, and doubtless will soon be in tho hands of justice. uiKBisnrnu. I'rorerlinr of I ! Constitutional Convention. llAKRisniuo, November 30. The standing committees are not ready to be announced. Another adjournment is talked of to give the President more time. The Auditor General reported the expenses of the convention of 1538 for printing, binding, reporting and contingencies ut $150,8 10. Mr. Addrii'k, from the Pix-cial ciini mittee of Philadelphia Councils, re' ported that Concert Hall, Chestnut street, had been secured. The motion for reporting and print ing came up on the report of the spec ial committee of fifteen. The convention voted down, by fif ty to fifty-seven, the resolution declar ing it expedient to report the debates. A resolution was adopted that the standing committee on accounts re port all the. cost of reporting, and that on their report the convention elect the official reporters upon the re ports, which will be limited to speech es made within the bar of the conven tion. An attempt was made, but failed, to reconsider the resolution providing for holding the sessions in Philadel phia. Haruisburg, November 21. The convention is making slow progress. The committees have not been an nounced, and nothing can be doni un til they are. About an hour was occupied this morning in receiving propositions to amend the constitution from nearly half the delegates. They were read and laid oa the tabic as received, to be referred to. the appropriate com mittee when appointed. Among the propositions were the following : Making the term of Gov ernor four years, and ineligible to re election until out four ; changing the election of law judges to appointment by the Governor for life," with provis ion for a retired list and favoring fe male suffrage. The convention adjourned at elev en o'clock until to-morrow morning. FIRE IN JFKSEY CITY. New York, November 20. About six o'clock this evening a fire broke out in Perrin Si Hauce's steam saw mill on Fourteenth street, near Hen derson street, Jersey City, destroying the building and surrounding lumber yards. Loss $15,000. The flames extended to Jarvis & Honwood's tobacco inspection warehouse, bound ed by Thirteenth and Fourteenth, Provost and Henderson streets, con taining about 5,000 hogsheads of tobacco. Loss on tobacco about $1, 200,000, loss on building about $18, 000 which is insured, principally in New York companies. The store house destroyed was a building 400 by 200 feet, one story and attic high, and filled with tobacco, recently re ceived over the Erie road, and be louging to a large number of firms, who aro supposed to be insured, though ihis is uncertain. In colse proximity was an immense six story building, containing fully five thous and hogsheads of tobacco, which for tunately escaped injury, though the wooden shutters to the windows, painted to rcpresenteil iron, were somewhat charred. The newly-erected shops of the Erie railroad, also close at hand were not injured, though for a time in great danger. The dwellings in the vicinity, which were a great many, built of wood and occupied by laborers, were soon emp tied of their contents but were saved by the firemen. The loss on tobacco is variously estimated, though the most intelligent statment we are able to procure places the quantity burn ed at three thousand hogsheads, which would bring the loss in the vicinity of $C00,000 to $800,000. The burned saw mill was insured for $11,000. The PrrHidential EIrrtlon.

Lexington. Ky., November 21. A fire broke out in Dow & Bro.'s plauing-mill at nine o'clock to-night which is likely to prove nnst disas trous. The fire has already extend ed two blocks, and over twenty-five houses have been burned. A later dispatch says: The fire which broke out about uino oVlok to night in Dow Si Hro.'s planing-mill on Mechanic street, is now under complete control and the loss will not be as great as at first estimated. A strong northwest wind was blow ing at the tune, which carried the sparks a great distance, and at one time the entire northern portion of the city was threatened with destruc tion. The epizootic has disabled all the horses of the fire department, and steamrcs which were drawn by the citizens were considerbly delayed in reaching the fire. There were nine teen buildings destroyed, the majority of which were tenement houses, princi pally occupied by negroes. The prin cipal losers were Wm. Bruce, Dow & Brother, Wm. Brcsh, and John M. Headley. It is impossible at this time to give even an approximate es timate of the loss. THE HORSE DISEASE. Memphis, November 21. The horse malady is steadily increasing. The weather being damp and cool, contributes to the spread of the dis ease, liusincssis unaffected as vet but should it become general its effect on the cotton market and trade gen erally is serously apprehended.

From some recently arrived Frenchman the fact ha U-en obtain ed that a party of about twenty ban ished Communists started from Ver sailles last week fr New York.

Of the 1,051,C:0 population of Wisconsin more than one-third are foreigners, and more than two-thirds are put down in the census as "hav ing one or both parents foreign," and 670,759 inhabitants, or nearly two thirds, ns "having foreign fathers and foreign mothers." Forty four cargoes of corn in bu'k have been shipped from New Orleans across the Atlantic in the last fourteen months, and the Picayune savs : Out of all these shipments onlv one or . i i. ....... .!..: two cargoes, wnicu weni uui uui ring the germinating season, have been in- hired by heating.

In some States there will be but one or two assigned, but in the larger densely populated cities the a sufficient force to do the work with out inconvenience to the business. It is claimed that the immigrants who landed on our shores last year added upward of $2S5,0O(.O00 to the national wealth; computing their value merely as unskilled laborers. Statistics show, however, that forty six per cent, of the male immigrants have been trained to various pursuits, i half of whom are skilled laborers and ; workmen. The value of these men to j the country can hardly be computed. ; The Queen of England has re vers- ed the gallantry of Sir Walter' Raleigh, w ho spread his rich plush ' coat out for his sovereign to tread j upou. The Duke of Sutherland is! having a shafsunk ii his estate to' improve some mines, and being told of these operations while there, the! Queen expressed a desire tosee them. The Duke escorted her thither and j while Her Maiesty was standing on i the bank inspecting the work it com-! menced to rain. A fe w yards off one of the men was sawing some timber! for the shaft, pud, heedless of the rain, continued h's work without a coat. Presently he was surprised to feel a light touch, and on looking up perceived the Duke, who laid a costly rug over his shoulders, at the same time exclaiming, "The Queen requcs-j ted me to prcsc lit yen with her own riig; you may keep it and wear it." Among the minor but still very J seriou.s and irreparable losses occa- i sioned by the Boston conflagration was the complete destruction of the letters, papers and manuscripts of the historian Prcscott During the al sence in Europe of the members of the family into whose possession they had come, - had been stored ' for safety" in one of the burned build ings. Mr. Prescott's physical infirm ity had made it necessary for him to cause copies to be taken of an im mense number and variety of ancient and authentic documents concerning Spain and the two Americas, and the destruction of these as well as of his own correspondence and literary memoranda is in its way a public calamity to the world of letters. With these also perished some of the finest portraits ever painted by Coplcy, the fathcrof Lord Lyndhnrst, and the first of American artists to win a name and fame in the world. GRVOKM.N.

The names of the killed and wounded have not yet been ascertained, though it is believed that nearly nfl were residents of Wilmington.
