WEDKEHOAY, FEB. 14,1877.
The U. it P. Kailkoai).?The C
& P. Kailroad fell behind $-120,245 82
in its reovij>tM for 1876 as compared with
1875. ItM expenses, however, were $207,
010 64 lew, leaving- its net earningi
$101,020 20 less than in 1875. In 187C
it-H surplus to the leasee (Pcnnsylvanit
Kailroad) was $173,385 38, and in 187(
only $11,760 00. Considering the im
wense Centennial passenger business don<
over the linu lust year, this loss in nei
revenue would indicate either a falling
off in tonnage or else lower prices on tin
average business.
A srrciAL committee of the U'gisla
ture will go down to Moundsvllle to-daj
to investigate the affairs of the Peniten
tiary. Thoy will probably Ihj in sessioi
two or three days. It will lie their duty
to inquire into and report upon all ul
leged abuses connected with the ariminis
trillion of that institution. Among othei
things, we hope they will tell us why I
was necessary to spend $3,187 89 in pel
diem ami mileage to five directors, ir
twenty months' time, and what the Stall
has to show for such an enormous ex
ponditure. Also, let them tell us whethei
there aro not one or two oflicials cm
ployed around the Penitentiary whom
offices are mere sinecures, and whethei
said offices could not be merged int(
one office and still leave the incurabcn
plenty of sp .r.- time on his hands.
Legislative committees aro usually
largo consumers of whitewash in theii
reports, but we fthall not prejudge thi
one.

One year ago the Inteluokncer pre
sentcd the breakfast tables of Wheeling
with a unique and detailed account o!
the Mardi Uras muinmery of the preced
ing day in the "Nail City." And agair
it will picture the way of celebrating the
great carnival in this, the farthest Northern
city in which BUch a celebration has
yet been held.
During the entire morning thepopula
lion of the city, augmented by many bun
drcds ot strangers from rail and rivei
tributaries, was on the tip-too of ex
pectuncy. Fortunately the threatening
weather of the preceding morningchang
etl its frowns to the brightest 01 smile.'

supposed origin and object of these mys
terioiiB organizations; and not ever
touching upon the more practical
aspect of business attracted to Wheeling

space than we have at command?wc

condensed description of the outward am!

and mysterious grace it may and inns!
pOPBCM.
The suggestion made by the daily press,
that the citizens decorate their residences
and places of business, was quite generally
adopted. Main and Market streets
especially were gay with bunting, while
many buildings were handsomely decorated
with evergreen. The city; building
was hung with the Hags of all nations,
and the other public buildings tlisplayed
the national colors.
During the morning numerous gay
cavaliers, clowns, warriors, I:nights, imps
and devils could he seen dodging about
the city, hunting for their respective delegations.
and exciting the curiosity of
the multitude to the highest pitch. The
great mass of the crowd, however,
moved toward the Capitol building,
where, at high noon, King Comus and
the Mystic Krewc were to demand of the
M ayor the keys of the city. IJy 12 o'clock
several thousand people had assembled
about the building, and the porticos and
steps of the south front were crowded
with ladies and gentlemen. Shortly alter
12 the sound of music was heard in the
east, and n few moments later the King
of the Carnival, attended by the Grand
Chancellor and about fifty Knights of
the Mystic Krewe, finely mounted and
caparisoned, and headed by the Wheeling
City Band, marched down lGth street
and halted in front of the Capitol, where
the Mayor and other oflicers of the city,
IMU VII/ V;UIIU^I 11 OlillU UlllCl'm mill uicuitars
of the Legislature had assembled to
do them honor, liex and liia Grand
Chancellor occupied a chariot in the
centre of the procession, which halted directly
in front of the Capitol. The Grand
Counselor, whoscr voice bore a remarkable
resemblance to that of our late
Prosecuting Attorney ami ex-Speaker of
the House of Delegated, then approached
the Mayor and delivered a snort address,
demanding of Hw Honor the keys
of the city.
The Counselor, in presenting himself
before the Mayor, read the following:
PROCLAMATION.
Mod Honorable Mayor of the Cily of
ing :
In humble obediencc to the sovereign
command of his Mirthful Majesty, King
Momus, I beg leave to announce to your
Excellency and the Honorable Council
of the city of Wheeling, our Monarch's
most gracious will and pleasure. It
is his Highness' instruction that, as his
. Grand Counselor, I should communicate
to your Excellency and the honored citizens
you so faithfully represent, the most
profound and cordial assurances of His
Majesty's esteem and affection* and the
kindliest considerations of his ^Mystic
Krewo. This is the occasion of His Highness'second
visit to your beautiful Capital
city, and it seems eminently fitting,
in the opinion of our illustrious King,
that the fullest acknowledgments should
bo made to all who have been instrumental
in according to him and bin obedient
subjects this generous and flattering
reception. This compliment from
the worthy sons and fair daughters of
Wheeling to the sovereign and subjects
of the Kingdom of Folly is fully recognized
and .appreciated. This day lias
been set apart by our worthy King as a
day of jubilee throughout all the realms
of his merry dominions. We inspire no
evil example; we inllict no injury upon
society in the folly we excite and in the
innocent mirth and mischief we provoke.
Our coming signifies to all a period of
unrestrained pleasure and rejoicing. This
does not mean, however, an unbridled license
to break the law or violate thecodo
of public morals. It is simply a respite
from care, an exemption from labor, a
truce with trouble, a release lor a short
timo from the harassing anxieties and
responsibilities of every-day life, so ne-1
eessary and healthful to all classes of
men. We offer in the King's namo a |
cordial invitation to all your citizens to
join the royal pageant and participate
in the pleasures of the Carnival; and we
proclaim the freest indulgence to the
fun-loving and mirth-provoking subjects
of the city that may be compatible with
the law and good morals. To the end,
therefore, that His Majesty may have
absolute power this day witliin the
bounds of this city, that tno joys attend
ing hi* Urand Carnival may not be Mi
diminished, lie haa delegated me to aolicit erl
of tour Kxcellencv the keva of the city, a i
which will Hecure for the King full pos? sei
session and control of all its limits uur- coj
ing his royal yiiiit; and VrlilUt the power thi
of your Excellency mar be suspended for on
a short i>eriod, yet the King and his loyal aoi
Knights, whilst seeking to gratify and nu
delight all, will allow no immunity to pl<
violence or indecorous behavior. Again ah
assuring you of His Majesty's confidence, foi
I await your Excellency's pleasure to pu
, deliver tho keys. ed
I TUB MAYOR'S REPLY. jfl
i Most Worthy Counselor: |jj
Nearly one year ago u request, in ef- ftti
, feet just the same oh that presented by to<
. you, was made by your worthy iiredeces'
sor iu oilice to the authorities of this an1
cient city, and promptly acceded to, givi
ing for the day and occasion submission til
. to tho government of his royal Majesty, jjl
the King of Mirth, whom you to-day so
5 gracefully represent. The portly persons ^
t in your train aro ample illustrations of
; the truth of that old saying, "Laugh
. and crow fat.'' and evidence of the fun '0
and "jollity prevailing at ilia Majesty's Cc
Court. '
The circumstancfflsurroundinguh now
aro very different from tho?e one year M
ago. Then the celebration of the "Mardi Y
CJran" wan an event unknown to most of
our citizen*, ami wna awaited with a curiosity,
not unmixed with suspicion. The M
good conduct of the "Mystic K rewe," and .
of the follower of the regal court on .
that occasion, was then satisfactory, and "V
in now a guarantee that the fears then en- 1,11
tertained were groundless. The strict
rule of J lis Majesty, and the enforcement l.?
of the wine lawn of hin government will !*.r
l)c upheld, and necessary assistance ren- <
derecl at all times by the appointed guardians
of the peace, who have received
full instructions to repress anything de- op
rogatory to the dignity of His Majesty's fai
realm. eri
The residents of this loyal city of Wheel- 0f
ing, relying upon the pledges of His Maj- 'fi
esty, which you have so plainly and fore- C||
ihly announced, how in submission to his th
loyal will, accede to his demands, and arc ii,
prepared to enjoy to the full "the poiup n?i
and glorious circumstance" of his entry; pr
to Ik; amused by the pageant, and to lirotit n[>
by that which is the true and renl charm ro
oi the Carnival, the universal prevalence n,
of good humor. inj
While speaking for our citizens, I must nu
not forget to present through you, to His wi
Majesty, the fact that we have in our of
. midst over three ncore gentlemen enti- th
tied to his highest respect and greatest br
consideration. They constitute the Legis- Ki
t lature of our State, a grave and dignified
l?ody; among them are merchants, farmers,
lawyers, physicians, and, 1 am ini
formed, Grange re; and although all
these gentlemen are sedate as becomes ?
their position, you may assure your Liege r.
' Lord that they nre fond of innocent fun,
r.nd can really enjoy his mirth as fully as ^
any. May lie succeed in making his visit
; of to day eo delightful that all, ot every Cl?>
f class, who observe it, may cherish it in
after life as a pleasant recollection.
' And now Worthy Grand Counselor, n
fully justified by the experience of His i,.|
' Majesty's visit last year, and resting upon
1 the royal pledge of -his honorable inten- W'
lion to again, upon this occasion, minis- <:i<
- ter to the healthlul pleasure and enjoy- ~
ment oC our citizens and distinguished ,|m
visitors, 1 hand you for conveyance to 1
His'Majesty these, the keys ot this loval .1
city, now confided to his care, assuring
him, through you, of our high regard rod
1 and consideration.
TIIE l'H0CES3I0tf. ~~
At the conclusion of the ceremonies ut
, the Capitol, the King and his Cavaliers
I disappeared in the direction from which
r they came, and an hour later the grand ^
| procession was formed on Main street, jis
, between 12th and 10th, in the following
ori,er : th>
I Karl Marshal of the Empire.
Bearer of Keys and standard Bearer. Kre
I Ten Trumpeters iu double row, lite abreast. Sot
First Assistant Marshal. .1
Klnjj's Advanco Guard.
King's Hoyal Band.
King'* Chariot and Knights of the Mystic Krowe.
Second Assistant Marshal.
Oddities, Imps and Devils.
Tblnl Assistant Marshal.
Our Centennial Curiosities. ?-?>x
German Fidello Bociety.
The President of the 5jodety, ottended by two
Aids, horoctiack.
Standard Bearer of the Society, with two Knights
as Guurds.
Four Heights In Court Coatuuiea of tho Fifteenth
Century.
Master of Ceremonies of the.Society, with Kramer's
Music Band.
Tableaux. En
Masks of all kinds.
There was a general feeling of disapi
pointment over the display, which was
not nearly so grand a* last year. The An
procession was not more than half as ?1
long as before. However, the different *
representations were very line, and excited
a good deal of sincere admiration.
The trumpeters, with their long tin ~jhorns,
heralded the approach ot the
King, whose chariot was a conspicuous |
feature of the proccssion. This chariot
was about fifteen feet high, handsomely Th
mounted, and drawn by eight horses.
Upon one side were the words "Ilonor
to the King." The King and his ptime
ministers pat high in State, while higher ?
still was a clown, who distributed confec- H
tions right and left among the good people
of the realm. Immediately after the
chariot came a host of oddities, imps and ym
devils, clowns, pantaloons, harlequins,
columbines, Indians, negroes, Chinamen, W
Kiaiiin, uwuriH, rvnigms Ol ine MySUC ^
Krewe in carnival costume?, and a num- t\u
ber of decidedly original and striking
representationii. Among the latter vre
noticed a wagon finely decorated with Wil
Continental mottoes, in which pat a Con- c1';
tinental Roldier quenching his thirst with or *
a glass of beer; a wagon load of oddities ja
in the shano of aged and respectable ~
looking colored people, who stretched
their necks right and left to the distance
of several yards with the greatest of ease,
and to the delight of the crowd ; a Steu- 1?
benville man on horseback, with a head
bigger than his horse; a buggy containing
several female darkies, who manip- j.h
ulated tho.?c instruments of torture
known as "the bones" in a manner fear- y i
fill to contemplate, and distracting to the W?
ear.
THE TABLEAUX
were very good, setting oft'the display
nicely. The first was entitled "Iiock
ICifl'hauser," showing Frederick Burbarossa,
the German Emperor, at the moment
when he awakes from Ilia thousand *-%
years' sleep to er^t the new Emneror fcj
William 1, with his stall", after receiving
the news of the formation of the German
Empire, tho result of the German-French
War of 1870. The next represented a V
cremation furnace, a la Dr..Le Moyne, ?
with His Satanic Majesty tossing human "I "]
beings inside. A tableau entitled "No U
Coffee House on tho Island" came next,
representing the Island Councilinen sit- p|;
ting in a drug store drinking, while on
one of tho windows was displayed the
significant phrase, "Pull Down the
Blinds." with tho following lines ap- Nos,
(tended:
"Surroundcdjby water, supports! Itjr Stone, -^1
Our 'Sycamore' scums us a little kingdom of our ^
own?" (4
Following this was a tableau representing
the different classes of people in pf
Euroj?e, which attracted a good deal of wl
attention. Then came n wagon with
four collectors appealing to tho charity \ar
of the public, the amount collected to !*
given to the orphans. Tho tableau representing
the Louisiana returning board
counting the votes at the last Novomber
election followed next in order, and excited
the merriment of the populace
everywhere. A tableau representing G
Indians returning from a bear hunt closed
this part of _ the procssBion. In this
wagon was a live black bear, belonging ?
to Mr. Adanirom Newland, of Martin's f
Ferry. JJ
MISCELLANEOUS.
The procession closed with a miscellaneous
crowd of masks, in carriages and
on horseback. There were some good
features in this tail-end of the display, fe1
notably the rather uniquo apparatus ?
representing our State capital on wheels, VT
and a wagon containing a burlesque ren- -1^
resentation of the West Virginia Legis- Jf
lature in eession. The "Fourth Ward a*
irtial Band," which. owing to tho ex.
Jons of Unolo John Boring, haa earned
liche in history, was faithfully repreited
by several seedy individuals in a
rt drawn bf a s<Jraggy home. Then
jre waa a vehicle with a troupe of coled
minstrels, with bones and banjo,
Qga and dances; a cart containing a
mber of striking miners, with their
:ka on their shoulders, and last, and
10 least, was the diminutive coach and
ur ponies of Mr. Harry Deakin's LUiitian
troupe, which waa closely followby
a crowd of admiring little folks,
icre were a great many other vehicle#
the procession of which we nave not
f space to speak. All were appropri.
fly decorated, and boro sign Meant mot*
ps and inscriptions.
THK ROUTE.
After taking full possession of the city,
o following line of march was followed:
p Main to 7th, up 7th to Market,down
nrkct to 21st, up 21st to Chapline,down
iniilino to 3Jd, up 33d to Kofi, down
>11 to 39th, down 39th to Jacob, down
cob to 44th, up 44th to Wood,up Wood
-18th, down 38th to McCollocn, tip Mcilloch
to 32d, down 32d to Wood, up
ood to 31st, down 31st to Chapline, up
lapline to 21th,down 24th to Main, up
sin to 12th, up 12th to Chapline, down
lapline to l ltli, up 14th to Jacob, down
cob to 16th, down 10th to Main, up
ain to 9th, and countermarch down
ain again to ICth.
On H?th Htreel, after the route given
ove had been panned over, tho uroceHin
wrnt halted, and the King delivered
i address, winch wo regret the crowded
ite of our columns will not permit us
publish. At the conclusion of tho adess
the procession broke up, and the
ystic Krewe retired to prepare for the
EVKNINO FESTIVITIES.
The goodly Knights were at no loss for
ortunitv to diaport themselves after ibe
igue of the march. There were spy.
al masquerades, the most prominent
which were: the A. liolf boat elub, at
imer Hall, tho F. A. Hritt boat
ib, at Melodcon Hall, and the Beeoven
Singing iSociety, at Beethoven
ill. Tho Parkersburg excursionists
ido night merry on the steamer Exess,
and there were other social balls
out town. With all these terpsichoun
entertainments, tho Mystic Krewe
imaged to enjoy the evening of Wheeli?'s
second Mardi Graa in a right royal
inner. We trust that King Comua met
th such a loyal welcome at the hands
his subjects in this part of tho realm,
ut ho will return again in even more
illiant style next year. Ixjng live the
