The I.ofW" ai the Charlemon Fire.
Mr. John Ursnop, ol the Franklin Insurauce
Company, returned from Charlestun
jesierdsy, where be has been lor two
necks past adjusting the losses ol the
Wheeling companies by the fire at that
place oo Ibe lHlb nl last montb, From
kls report we learn-that the losses of the
Wheeling compsuies are as follows:
Franklin $8,403 20; Fire & Marine
$4,311 40i I'eabody $3,454 IS; .(Etna
f3,247 93; German $3,755 58; Nail City
$4,037 40; Citizeus $3,500; total $38,708 84.
In udditiou to these losses of the Wheellug
companies, the State, ol Parkersburg,
lust $2,500; the Gerinanla, of Mew York,
lost $1,500; the Underwriters $500; the
Continental $1,130; the Flro Association,
ol Philadelphia, $403.80; the Huubury, of
ol Pennsylvania, $400; the Union, of Hal
liuiore, $5073; the Home, ol Columbus,
(500; the Atlantic and Pacific, ol Chlrign,
$304 50; the Hartford $102.50; the
Pa-nix liui.ou. Total 1038 ol all tbe compmlts,
$:)?,899.23.
Mr. Bishop estimates that Ibo loan pa not
covered by iusurauco will not exceed
tW.IHW Bo that the whole loss by the
tire will lull abort ol $60,000. The block
burned was remarkably well iusurcd.
Up lo this lime no movements have been
made lor rebuilding tbe burned district.
Tubhe will be a meeting to day of the
Directors of the Pittsburgh, Wheeling &
Kentucky Kailroad, at their olllce in thia
city, lor the purpoao uf winding up auch
UDliaisbed business as may need their atteutiou
prior to the annual election lor a
new Board. From all we can learn the
Directors are not Iu receipt of any additional
information from the managers of
the Pittsburgh, Cincinnati & St. Louis
Company iu regard to their views on the
condition and prospects of the Pittsburgh,
Wheeling & Kentucky road. It is not
therefore known what to expect Irom that ^
Company Iu the way of co operation iu
tbe spring in the work ol getting tho road
in order lor its superstructure. Meanwhile,
as we have noticed before, a meet- |
ing ol taxpayers is called at Wellsburg ,
lor Ibe 9th Inst., to take into consideration ]
tbe steps proper to be taken by tbe ,
Counties of Brooke aud Ohio, in view
of the condition of their road. We pre- ]
sume, Irom what we have seen in tbe 1
Wellsburg papers, that the question ol '
an out and out Bale of tho road to the J
Pennsylvania railroad, or Home otlmr Ml- ,
sponsible company,will be agitated. Such !
a aale has been already suggested aa the j
speediest, surest and most direct method
of extricating the road from its diiliculcultlea
and insuring its completion at an
early day. The people of the two counties
are not suupoaed to be in favor of any
further subscriptions to the capital Block. |
They would probably prefer to glvo away |
their investment as It now stands rather j
than vote an additional subscription. The
prospect lor dividends on the stock is si?
exceedingly remote in any aspect of the
question that the investment may be
called a donation. We shall not therefore
be surprised to see the Wellsburg meeting 1
declare in favor ol selling out the road
to some company prepared to go on in
the aprleg and'finish It.
Tub editor of the Moundsville National
is becoming belligerent. He has served
a notice on the editor ot tbe Democrat to 1
keep bis name out or his paper, and ac- 1
companies the notice with,tbe observa- 1
tiou that if he was a lighting character he '
would ere this have blown out the Demo- 1
crat man's brains. The latter, nothing '
daunted, replies by alluding to the JVa- 1
lional man as an idiotic editor, whobaan't I
any brains of his own that any body
knows of to blow oot. This sort of re- ;
partee is what is known as personal joor- ,
naliain. There ia a bad case or the Bauie J
style of journalism now in progress in the |
San Francisco papers. The editor of the
Chronicle called the editor of the Sun " a ,
bigamist and a liar," aud the Sun retorted ,
in severe terms concerning the mother ,
and sister of the editor of tbe Chronicle. {
The editor of the Sun is in jail on a i
charge ol libel, and there 1b a probability |
that the Chronicle man will soon be sent .
to keep him company. a. somewhat .
novel phase of the difficulty is the performauco
of a son ot the Chronicle editor, '
who entered the Sun office with a hatcliet '
and demolished the forms containing the {
libelous article aboat his grandmother
and aunts. We presume that this Moundsville
difficulty will yet take the shape of
a hatchet.
Whim our friend' Bishop was at 1
Charleston settling insurance 1 osses, his
Iscieuttnc tastes would assert themselves, 1
and accordingly we find lliat he baa
brought bomc a geological curiosity in the
shape ol a pelrllied Cactus leaf. It was i
uuearthed some time ago lu tbe neighborhood
ot Charleston, and is adjudged to be
the work ol ages. The Cactus la a tropical
plant, and does not grow wild In the
? uiguur mutinies. The argument there- 1
lore i> that the Kanawha Valley was once
a tropical or semi-tropical region. The ,
theory ol Captain John Com, the Artist i
anil Burveyor, with whom Mr. Bishop 1
fell Id, It that the earth at one period aud- '
denly reversed its inollou and thus i
changed Us former latitudes. We presume
that It was this ancient temperature
thai Colonel Bih. tin mi had in mind
when he made that allegorical and hyperbolical
statement about Charleston being
in a land o( perpetual summer. Colonel
But. himself Is a sort ot pre historic leafll,
and no doubtliadaDaawuiuit existence
In those days.
The Street Can >n Baltimore.
TUo enterprising street railway companioa
lu Baltimore make mora money In
bail than in good weather, at all street
railroad companies ought to. The following
Is the way they do it:
"In the city, the street cars of the OUy
Passenger Hallway lines, Governor Bowie,
double-teamed and salted the tracks; but
the Cltlzena' line, James Hagerty, swept
the tracki with the new 'snow scraper,'
which made the snow fly. The scra|ier
is a patent of Mr. Uagerty's. A small
Iron socket la fastened under the front
platform; an arm thiee leet long la hinged
in the socket, terminating with a steel
acrapcr. This scraper works upou a
hinge, so as to allow the car to be moved
backward or lorward. The scraper,
being placed immediately in front of the
wheels, removes the snow with great rapidity
and efleoliveneas. The results of
the scraper are two hones instead of four
to a car, a full line ol cars running, an absence
of slush In the streets from aaltlug,
and a saving in one day to the Company
or?125.
Apropos to this subject of street cara
we notice the following extract from a
letter written by Gen. G. T. Beauregard,
who is president of the Mew Orleans and
Carrnlllon Railroad Company, to a gentleman
In New York:
"The tireless locomotives have now
keen In use two months on a portion of
that road ol about three miles. They have
resulted in a gain over horses of twenty
minutes to the round trip. They are more
mauageable than horses, being more readily
stopped and started, and give the driver
opportunity to make change and attend
to the passengers. They start with
IS.1) pounds pressure, make the round trip
of six miles, and get back to the starting
point with 40 to 50 pounds. One dummy
is equal to nine mules. A calculation lor
twenty years makes the running expenses
I a road with these engines one-fourth of
that of equal conveyance with mules."
The New York lyibunt remarks that
if these figures are near the true ones, the
Jays of street cars drawn by horses are
numbered. "We can Imagine nothing
that would have a greater tendency to
uake cities grow in spaciousness?that Is,
ipread out and allow everybody to have
t plenty of fresh air and plenty of room
rvcry way?than street cars run, as Gen.
3kau regard's are, without horses to be
rlghleaed, or steam to frighten horses."
Mesmeric Influence at Falrmoal,
A lecturer from Washington City has
jeen entertaining the people of Fairmont
with discourses on "the laws of Ills and
lealth," and also subjecting some of them
:o mesmeric Influence.
"One became as rigid as marble, and to
wove the genuineness of this action, he
vas placed wi|h his extremes rosting upon
'.hairs, at least five feet apart?a position
vhich he could not possibly have main;aiued
under ordinary circumstances?
tud then subjected to a weight of 175
pounds, without the least relaxation ol the
muscles. The same person, while under
this Influence, had a lancet thrust into
hin Itnnd nno.Miinl nf on InoK oml
uo indication ol anfleriug pain, jfany
utber wonderful experiments were perlormed,
but we have no space to particularise."
We should prefer not to be a subject of
meauieric influence at Fairmont. This
tiling of thrusting a lancet a third or an
inch into a man's band to test the delicacy
!>f his sensibilities seems to savor too much
]f the heroic practice for thi9 advanced
>ge.
By the abolition of the franking prlviluge,
the Post Office Department saves
over $200,000 a year in its payments to
one railroad alone,?the Baltimore &
Ohio. In view of this fact, the people
can decide whether a nation that cannot
pay its expenses without Issuing a fresh
lot of irredeemable paper, can altord to
liave franking restored as a Congressional
perquisite. We know or no surer way
For a few Congressmen to commit a political
hari-kari than to introduce and
urge such a bill. II they honestly think
;hey ought to do ?o, let them go ahead,?
ind let their friends, If they have tears,
prepare to shed them.
Advance in Hinges.--A meeting ol the
EAstern Hinge Manufacturers was held
yesterday In Now York and prices were
idvanced 10 per cent on Straps and 71
[>er cent on Butts of all kinds. The
Wheeling Hinge Company was not rep eaented,
but we understand that they
will issue a card to correspond with the
idvance. The new card will be 30 distant

rable binges and 35 on reversible and

rhe Second Ward School Building*
ro the Editor! of the Intelligencer:
In a former article it was stated that
ground had been purchased on the corner
ol (old) Fourth and Union streets as a site
lor a school house lor the Second Ward,
at a cost ol about $12,000, and that a Committee
or the Board of Education had decided
to report In lavor of a plan for a
school building, the estimated cost of
which Is about 120,000; and that with
furniture, furnaces, lencing of grounds,
etc., the total would approximate f40,000
?an amount larner by several thousand
dollars than the cost of any other school
premises In the city, and for the benefit of
> Ward whose school going population Is
leas than 200. It was shown, too, that the
yropned building would well accommodate
hill 500 pupils. The committed reported
as stated, and the Architect is nou
under instruction to prepare detailed
drawings and specifications In accordance
with the plan reported by said committee.
Now it shall be the purpose ol this article
to make known to the people ol this
goodly city ol Wheeling some Important
lacts which the writer has taken pains to
collect, and which should not be hlddea
under a bushel since they go to show the
unbounded and unn&ralelled liberalMu (ft.
of the Board of Education.
The public school Ifuililiigs of the city
already completed are provMod with alt.
tinga lor the aooommodallon of tall thirtyI
it hundred pupil*.
There ire, beeldee, moral unfurnithtd
ami unaenifiini nwou. The hJghott
number oi pupils ever known to Be In
attendance at one time, and thla qoly lor
one month, WH 3,934. Of thia number
8,874 were white and #0 colored. The
average monthly enrollment during the
last school year was 2,508; and the bv-crane
dally ftttond&ncl 2,14(1. Thus will
it be seen that there are, usually, more
than 1,000, and never less than 700 vacant
seats in the school houses !
In the First Ward ;achool house there
are said to be 150 or more vacant scats
and one or two uuforniutied rooms. This
school building of IimII is ample for (he
entire school going population of both
the First and Second Wards. And were
these two Wards united as one sub-district,
as I hey well might be, tliere would
be no utcMity, whatever, for the propoxtil
new school house in the SecouU Ward!
" lint," say the Second Warders, " we
pay school tax, aud because, forsooth, wo
are permitted to exist as a senarate
Ward, weareeutillcd to separate tchool
privileges, aoil wo aru not disposed to
end our cblldrcn into another Ward to
school be the accommodation ever so
ample. And then our poor children
would have no fur to go. Those in the
lower end ol the ward would have nearly
six squares to go. It matters not that
some of us do send our Jlttlo girls way
oyer to the Female College, and that the
walk is lor them a healthlul recreation;
but|to compel these poor children to
walk four or tlve squares to school would
be sinful. They jlou't need the exercise
nor: recreation. To such irresistible '
logic has the Board oi Kducatiou
succumbed, and a tax paying
constituency are to be bled to the extent
ol $40,000 or thereabout, lor an improvement
not needed, but simply lor the <7ratification
of a local prejudice / Liberality (?)
truly I Well may it challenge a parallel!
A thousand vacant uats and five hundred
more to be added Ihertta!! And with
what very remarkable unanimity, too,
this matter has beeu carried through the
Board ol Education! It is said that only
one member has had the audacity, the
temerity, toataud out agaiust the measure
Irom its inceptiou, on the ground that it
is an uncalled lor aud useless squandering
ot the people's money; and that one 01
two other members expressed themselves
as not fully satisfied that there exists any
necessity whatever for this improvement,
but yielded to the importunities ol the
members Irom Madison (2d and Tth
Wards) sub-district, so lar as to vote for
the purchase ol the $18,000 site; uot,
however, until pledge was given ou the
part ot the Madison members that only a
building sufficient for a primary school
(or the Second Ward would be demanded,
and that there would be no grasping for
the possessions ot their honest, though
Tioi uiiswpccimg neigiiuors. now well
this pledge has been kept the sequel
allows.
For the facia herein set lorth, so far us
they relate to attendance iu the schools,
the writer derives his information from
the reports which have appeared irom
month to month, and from the official records.
For the statement with regard to
the number of sittings in the school
buildings proper, his information comes
In part from other sources entirely reliable.
The figures will not be questioned.
For spreading these tacts before the
public at this particular time, circnmstances
furnish a sufficient justification,
and "Old Commissioner" holds himsell
responsible to public sentiment tor the
ast.
The cause of education is one which he
has ever had at heart, and there is no man
who would sacrifice more in order to elevate
the public schools of Wheeling, and
place them on a standard in point of cfllciency
with the best in the country. But
be candidly admits his utter inability to
see how this object Is to be accomplished,
or In the slightest degree promoted by
the building ot school houses at the cost
of tens o( thousands of dollars, while there
are now sufficient accommodations in the
houses already built for a thousand more
children than attend the schools. By a
proper dlstributlMi of the Bchool population
ol the city, which can readily be effected
by judicious divisions ol the city
Into sub-districts, irrespective of Ward
lines, there would be no ntrjunilu tnr npw t
school houses lor at least tea years to '
come. The Board ot Education has full 1
power under the law, and it la made a J
duty of this body to divide the district ol j
.Wheeling into ''convenient sub-districts, J
having reference to the school houses al- J
ready built," etc. But more anou.
Cid Commissioneh. 1
That Second Ward School Hcnue.-A I
Hint to the Wise.
Editors of tbe Intelligencer:
Without assuming that there ti no ne- ]
cemty for a new school house in the Sec- '
ond Ward, I beg, in all kindness and as a '
devoted friend of our public schools, that :
the School Board Btop and honestly con- J
sider the serious objections to going lurther ,
In the direction they have taken. Let '
them also remember that many of the ob- "
jectlons are widely known and earnestly J
discussed by people all over the city j and '
that tbo discussion has taken a range :
which may lead to ateps that will threaten 5
to bring every school In tho city to a dead
stand still.
The "evidence on the street" is that the
Board have made a great mistake in selecting
aa a site the old lanyard property,
at the corner of Uth and Chapllne (late
Union and 4th) streets.
It is said to be well known:
That when sinking post holes at the
upper aide of the lot, old tan vats were
discovered at a depth of tiro feet, extending
thence downward to an unknown
depth, and that from these vats tanned
hldea were taken In a state of nreaervation
and sold to J erry Sheppard. \
That at one time there vita a bark abed /
standing on poets, under which the cattle "
stood and shaded In the summer season. ?
and tbat.the topa of these posts are now
about even with tbe surface.
That on another part was a well seventy
feet deep, which la now boarded
over twenty lent below tbe sutfacc, and c
filled up with tan baric. j
That one of the late owners. IIr. Clem- t
ens, perhaps, in excavating lor a privy j
vault, bad to abandon It at a depth ol 3
seven leet, by reason of a constant Influx (
of water from tho well and surrounding a
porous made earth. I,
That on another portion of the lot j,
there once stood an Ice house 18x30 feet ?
in size and 18 feet deep. These may |,
serve to explain why that deairably lo- c
cated property has not long since been
built up, and it may be worth while to
inquire whether the house that now
stands there waa not kept Irem falling by
unusual appliances of wooden Bills, etc., ?
to keep the stone toundation from iroiug ?
"all thp way down." ? t
Now If tneee things, oVth'e ball ol them, >
bo true, what will idv linnm ... I
needless, cost tlie city on such ground 1 '
Usual estimates, I believe, are based upon 1
excavations three leet for foundation. l( a
the Board go on and blindly make contracts,
then there is no backing out, the
District must then go on and build, even
U wo have to go 20 feet for foondation I
walls, and there will be no end to ex- i
penditures. The foundation alone win 1
coet from $16,000 to |30,000. Now is the '
time to itop?tell the property, even If yoti t
in nit sell it IV ft alight HoriUot; yea, It
woip Wfcr to fflw it away tbia to build
thero. "will not say this proposed school
bouso is urged by parties who should employ
their tlrno quite difleromly lor the
pay th?y get; nor will I say it is a scheme
to divide aud add three more Commissioner!
to the Uoard lor a population not
nowilo great all in tome u[ tbe other subdlatrJctH,
nor .will 1 say other barah
things now, but I do say that inauy better
reasons thau any yet given must be ollcred
belore the Board can reconcile the building
of this bouse in this place, with economy,
necessity and good management.
Lookout.
The Iron Trade, Present and Future.
[Prom tlio Cleveland Leader of Wednesday |
The mere fact that on the 29th Instant
a'general meeting ol Western Iron manufacturers
was held at Pittsburgh, has been
briefly announced. Concerning what was
said and determined on at that meeting
the telegraph has been so vague and Indefinite
that the purposes of the conference
are as yet but very Imperfectly
understood. The substance ol the press
report ol the meeting was that the tnanu
faclurers agreed that the business ot the
put year had been done on tbe whole?t a
loss. Owing to the high price of ore and
labor, the constantly declining market and
the outbreak of the panic just at the tiuie
that the heavy autumn trade UJtially begins,
hut! combiued to make the year ono
ol unltorm loss to the Iron business. A
few mauutacturers with especial advantages
in respect to ore supply, special
markets, &c., bad perhaps squeezed
through with a small profit, but the vast
majority were poorer at the cud of the
year tUau at its beginning, and several
had tailed.
Under these circumstances it was unanimously
decided that rales should now
be advanced sufficiently to prevent future
losses. The mill owners who have kept
their, turnacea' slight lor a year past
merely to keep their workmen employed
?nd their machinery from going to wreck
through disuse, now leel that the market
baa reached a condition which should secure
them at least a visible margin ol
profit. It should be understood, more- i
over, that all through the recent depres- 1
iion the iron makers have been paying i
fur labor a higher rate than the 1
selling market justified. According,to 1
the labor system now prevalent, In' tho i
iron mills, the pay lor puddling, rolling, I
stc., 19 carefully adapted to the selling
price nf the product. Thus If merchant 1
iron Sells lor St. per lb. the dillerent 1
iinds ol labor Involved in its mauufac- '
lure are piid accordingly. II the market 1
jJvanct-s or declines the labor scale ad- I
ranees or declines iu proportion thereto. i
Now the fact is that whereas the irou
narketlias been ior months .as low as
!}c, the labor rate'paid Is the one hased <
}n a market ot 3 U-lOo. The manufac- '
iurers are therefore entitled to au advance I
)l tully half a cent in their selliug rate
without any advance lu labor. This dis- ;
parity between the wages paid and tbe
prices received has been one ot tbe |
ieavv burdens of the rwwt vear. and the i
ran masters naturally think that it is
,iine that the normal relations between
eceipts and expenditures be restored.
Does the present condition of the iron
narket justify this stand in favor of
ligker rates? Let us seo. .
During the pastsix months the demand
or iron in largo quantities by Western
railroads and dealers has been almost
;otally suspended. Consumption has gone
m steadily, although at a diminished rate,
md the large stocks ol iron in the hands
)f wholesale dealers and commission men,
is well as the working stocks of railroads,
oundries,ctc., have been exhausted. All
hese must soon come into the field again
is buyers. Meanwhile the iron mills of
he West, running on under bare poles, so
0 speak have turned their entire
jroduct into the Eastern markets,
diey have in this way taken control of
he Eistera trade, and driven English
ron entirely out ol New York and .New
England. Labor In England costs nearly
is much sow as it does in the United
1 tales. Coal Is becoming scucc and costy
there, and the British makes can no
unger compete wun IUOBO 01 ine unuou .
States for the American trade. Iron baa J
ieen sent from Pittsburgh to New Tork ,
luring tbe paat two months and aold at .
51S 00 per ton less than it could be
mported. New York auppliea the
nyriad manufactories ol New England '
rtth their raw material, and that heavy ,
ind constant demand has come to be filled .
>t last mainly from mills west of the ,
Uleghenies, The situation ia therefore 1
ilaiu. With the earliest impulse oi spring
ictivity?and the first of March is but J
hree weeks distant?there must come a
harp demand for iron from the West '
there the surplus is already exhausted.
Phe eastern demand will contimie aa long )
is western iron ia eheapcr than the iu- ?
lotted, and we may be ' sure that .the
Vestern mill owners, once In posaeaiion .
il the Eastern market aa they now are,
fill not sufler'it to be taken away. Undor .
his double draiu, East and West, there |
s a positive assurance of such a recovery V
n rates as certainly Justifies the manufacurera
now iu refusing, to accept large orlerafor
their fnture products, except as ^
object to tbe prevailing market at tho
ime ol delivery, Tho market cannot be ,,
Dwer, and theroia every reason to believe .
hat it will be higher. Tho decision of
ho Pittsburgh convention was based npon e
he facts above stated. The past haa been _
I long, dark year for the Iron makers,
rhey have sailed close to the wind and
;ept their prows to tho front. Tho signs .
