V XL 3D W 6c CAMFSEIili, ITBLIMIXK! AKD 7R0PW*I0*!<. UKUXENUAY, Oirr. ?l, IST7. A llltf I.UUII Null. Cut Ciolhcra, of WcUaburg, wan in the titj litnl evening on his way home from Clarksburg, where he baa been serving an a jajyman in an important land auit in Iho United Btate* Diatrict Court. The deciaion of the cane involved titles to the homes of 120 West Viiirinia citizens, ami is known as the case of O. E. Woods vs. Jonathan Arniatrout ami others. The original patent covered 100,000 acres of land, situated mostly in Uraxton and Gilmer counties, in 6,000 acre lots, nnd wax obtained on the 112th of May, 1700, by Richard Smyth. Since tlio original patent was granted many other patents have been taken out for portions of the land, and it n4w embrace* about one bun* Ired and twenty?iix farms in Braxton and Gilmer counties, and this suit has been brought against all the occupants of these farms who hold by virtue of the patents obtained by them since the grant to Hmyth, or by deed from other persons who obtained patent*. Each defendant therefore has a separate law suit and the title of some of thcin may be good, while that of his neighbor may be worthless. They all claim by idverse possession. Their titles are all subsequent to the Hmyth title, but they claim that they have been in actual possession under ad* vcrco title long enough to bring them within the statute of limitations. It is also claimed that the Smyth title has been forfeited for taxes. The plaintiff* in the case are New York parties, and were represented at Clarksburg by Judge Uirdseye, a distinguished luwyer of New York, and by Caleb BogKens of this State. The defendants were represented by Judge Camden, Ilenry ljrunnon and ex-Senator Uennett. No decision was reached, as (he jury failed to agree. The-is are the nort of cases that arc vexing the land owners of West Virginia to-day and curbing tlie prosperity of the State. I he Moral Hazard** ot luNUrntice. During the la.st nice monlhs'the losses b/ lire in the United Sinter amounted to $52,360,990, and in Canada to $27,358,400; while for the corresponding period of 1S7G the lostes for tUeiwo countries were respectively $-17,400/200 aud $7,587,1)00. The -V. V. Chronicle, looking at these figme* accounts for the excessive increase in the case of Cauad i l?y making allowmice for the St. John lire, but it cannot believe that the great amount of loss this year was due to accident. There can be little doubt that the hard times augmented tho "moral hazard," while at the Mame time the insurance companies were obliged to lower their rates to meet the ability of the public to pay. The Chronicle states that risks which could not be taken at any rate whatever formerly had been placed on the book*, i I any compaiiiab Mifiafu mnnav (liii ttotp If liiftut ImvA lioon the foreign one* having immense capital aiul able to insure large and costly buildings which weaker companies cannot touch; and such edifice* are conspicuously thei*afer.

The nail feeders at the iEtna Iron Works, New Castle, Pa., work from Hix in the morning till nine at night. The iron business in that city is said to be bet* tor now than it lia? been for the past two or three year?. Money im cheap out at Cambridge. The Building Association there a few days ago sold $1,200 for 2 per cent premium. Loans hare been made heretofore iu the same association a* high as 03 per cent. The Oil City Da-rick says than an electric alarm belJ, for indicating the time for commencement and suspension of business, has been placed in the Oil Exchange by the Western Union Telegraph Company* Similar ones arc to be ulaced in the exchange at New York, Parker's and Titusville. They will be attached to the wires of the Western Union and all sounded at precisely the same time. The lessees of the Larear Coal Works above town, we learn, expect to ship coal by rail to Wheeling this winter and to thia end a switch will be put in at the tipple for their accommodation.

Business U less aclire, the fall trade being about oyer, but the prosperity of the agricultural interest thin season can scarcely fail to infuse new life into other branches of industry. But before full prosperity can return there must be a rcadjustment of industry and business, which will enable the products of our labor to competo with thoce of other nation* in the markets of the world.?

Tub Turks have sat down in I'levna and the Russians have sat down around it, and it eeems to be a regular Sitting Bulgarian campaign. ll'liw iirc "CnpllallflfM.*' In a n|*ech at Baltimore, the other 1 night, Hon. W. T. Hamilton diacuieed the iniue between capital and labor, and among other things, laid: ] "My honorable friend said that capital and labor sympathized and went together. Capital ami labor go together! I aeo around me 1,000, it may be 3,000.5,000 or 10,000 heads, and among these 10,000 1 venture to an.crt that there are 5,500 capitalist*. Why, the drayman before ine is a capitalist. Tho drayman, by hla aurpluH earnings, which ia capital, by hi* frugality and savingly may have acquired a horie and dray. That ia hin .capital. [Laughter.] It is capital only lew in degree than that of the greatest manufacturing establishment in thia city. His intereata are as much involved in the protection of that capital as aro those of tho greatest manufactory in thia city. When liia capital , ia protected, he ia protected; when it ia i employed, he ia benefitted, and when ; it la not, he ia wrecked, poasibly worse i wrecked than the largeat capital in the i city. The truth of thia matter U thia: you talk about tho wreck of labor, but tiio wrccK 01 capital surpasses anyraing ( (hat thin country oyer witnessed. I venture to assert that within the limit* o( thin little State of Maryland today , there is a wreck of two hundred million* of capital. You do not appreciate the fact that there are capitalists of $100, a* well an SI 00,000. and that the interests of the capitalist of $100 are as dear to him an those of the man who owns $100,000. He has toiled for it, and haa determined to lav it ty in some invested fund, savinga hank, bond, mortgage, or ban loaned it to Home friend upon personal security, and it i* gone. Let me tell you to night that the depreciation of railroad Hocks and bonds In Ohio and Maryland, and in other speculative stocks, has cost the people of this State all of $200,000,000. I don't think 1 exaggerate. This is $200,000,000 taken from the homes and fireaidea o( hundred* and thousands of people, to meet whom upon the street yoti would consider in a measurable degree of prosperity. Sol say that there is a greater wreck of capital to-day than there ia of labor. A* an illustration. When the man with the horse and dray lias no work, his capital is eating him up. He must not only support himself and his family, hut he must support his horse and keep his dray in repair. Bo that, in fact, when the snmll capitalist ceases to have work he had belter give away his capital, else it may starve his family and himnelf." 1IIUSC Ul JUIC. llllCU* J'l'IUU. London aiedicil Examiner. The case of Mile. Tiliens has excited so much interest, and ita pathological and clinical features are bo remarkable, that we hasten to put them before the profession. This distinguished artiile, who appeared oji the stage at the early age of seventeen, was only forty-four when she died. Two years and a half ago Mile. Titicnahad symptoms of obstruction of the bowels at Brighton, and on Dr. Howell's arrival a femoral hernia was found on the left side. This was reduced, and Mile. Tiliens was left in a satisfactory state; but a fewdava afterward sickness returned, and with it abdominal pain. A carcful examination discovered a tibroid tumor attached to the base of the retroverted uterus, the cervix uteri being pressed against the pubis. The tutnor was pushed up into tho pelvis, and the patient was relieved. The same accident occurred on three other occasions, the tumor each time being pushed up into the pelvis after a few dap' rest. Mile, Titiena noticed last April that the abdomen waa increasing in size, and that there were Bome ascites. Mr. Spencer Wells then saw her, with Dr. Howell. Diuretics were used, hut on the 20th of the month the kidneys ceased to secrete, the bowels would not answer to aperients, and vomiting ensued. The patient was then seen bv Sir William Jenner and Mr. Spencer Wells, with Dr. Howell, and it was determined to tap the abdomen. This waa done by Mr. Wells, and sixteen pints of lluiu escaped. The omentum was thickened, hard, and attached to the abdominal walls by strong adhesions. The fluid was examined microscopially, and it was found to contain large cordate, irreguln? anil mntlmi. pnllo ?. f - the operation the patient was' tapped again, and twenty-five pints were withdrawn. A month later 21 pints were evacuated, a month afterward 1G pints, and a fortnight later 1-1 pints. The solid ma?.', which is now considered to have been of a sarcomatous charactcr, steadily increased during the whole period, and at the time of death probably weighed 10 to 18 pounds. Sir J as. Paget and Dr. Wilson Fox saw the patient in j the latter part of her illness, and tlie case ran the usual course, withmckness,acuto pain, and comparative temporary relief after the tapping. During the last months thai Mile. Titiena resided at Worthing general dropsy of the lower extremities supervened. The kidneys acted fully after the tapping, but the eecretion gradually and progressively diminished after each operation up to the time when 1 the operation again became necessary. Kindergartens in St. Lobis leema to have found congenial soil. They have thriven and multiplied in the four years sance the first was opened by the enthusiastic Miss lllow. In* 1874, the second year, two new kindergarten* were established, the next year nine more, and the next 1-1 more, or 20 in all, in which over 1200 young children are enjoying the developing freedom of the new nyj?tem. Each of these schools is in charge of a woman teacher, who has oversight of from four to six volunteer assistants, who are receiving instruction in kindergarten 1 methods oi teaching. The 26 "gardens" are connected with 13 schools, and hold sessions half in the forenoon and half in the afternoon. Tuition costs nothing, but parents of children who have the ineana pay a dollar a quarter for the use of the material. The assistant*, afier one year ' of teachiag, receive a "practical diploma," and after two years a "theoretical diploma," if, in the opinion of the teaeWn thoy are worthy of it. One hundred anil twenty-Beven pupils arc now in the train- : ing class. The system is popular among j the people, and lias good promise of what it may achieve anywhere under equally enthusiastic managers. Ivarts 011 I'umerou. \V*>hiug?un Ilspatch to the Phlta. American.
