Lomdon, November 21.?A remarkable event occurred at Cambridge on Saturday last, which haa given riae to much comment and surprise that auch a degree of intolerance ahould exiat in England. On that day the degree of Doctor of Civil Lawa was conferred upon Charles Darwin by the University. Notwithstanding the illustrious rank which Mr. Darwin haa long held in the scientific world, the clerical power has been ntrong enough in the governing body ! of the University of Cambridge and Oxford to prevent anj honorary degreo from being awarded to him heretofore. The capture of the honorary diploma for Mr. Darwin wan, therefore, REUARDKD A8 A GREAT VICTORY for the anti-Clerical party, and this fact has given the occasion much interest that it would not otherwise have had. Accordingly, ton Saturday, Mr. Darwin'tt friends presented themselves in great force, determined that the moral effect of a large representation of scienti6c and literarvmen present in the interest of the heretofore neglected scientist should not be wanting. The under graduates thronged the galleries of the great hall, and the desire to Bee the savant was general. When Darwin and Huxley appeared, the mi wirt iuucu tu iuc Buaricb gown oi a Doctor, TREMENDOUS AND ENTHUSIASTIC CHEERS Broke forth from all part* of the building. The massive features of Darwin were immobile as stone. No one present could detect even a trace of gratification in the lines of the face or in the expression of the eyes. It was certainly a moment of great victory for the aged philosopher. The impressive ceremony was diversified by the usual hooting sna chafing from the students, which was far worse than the uproar heard in Oxford on the occasion on which General Grant received a similar degree. The licenne accorded to the boys on tbo?e occasion* far exceeds anything that can be imagined by the College faculties of the United States. At a critical moment in the proceedings an effigy oi a monkey, robed in an undergraduate's gown, was lowered into the middle of the hall from the most (imminent nnint In tka nallarv Tl.Ia efligy bore a legend, in iarge letters, read* ing: "THE M1861K0 LINK." Notwithstanding all thin cbafling and laughter there waa much sincere enthusiasm. In the evening Dr. Darwin was further honored with a public dinner, but the delicate health of the kaxanl pre* vented liia attendance. Professor Huxley made the speech in response to the toant of Mr. Darwin's health. The event has, beyond question, created a deep and gratifying impression among the scientific claaaeB throughout Englaud. Pittsburgh to Wheeling via WaNbingtoii, l'u. Waihlogtoo Letter in Pittsburgh Gazette. In view of the already completed and prospective roads passing^through our town, itseems we are to become a rail* road centre of some importance. Even now (he travel went from Pittsburgh to Wheeling, is being diverted from the old to thin newer route. .And there are good reasons for this preference for our line. It is shorter by a goodly number of miles; again, the rich hills and beautiful valleys of Washington county,from a picturesque scenery that is a tiling of beauty and an everlasting joy to the intelligent traveler; moreover, tne hour or so of leisure, between trains, spent in our time honored town, the home of the alma mater of so many men eminent in politics and the professions, is not to be despised in the dar of small things. Just here let me record our annMcla.. tion of the eflorta being marie on the part of the Hewpfield(B. <k 0.) rood in the interest of our town and community. First, they reduced the fare all along the line about 25 per cent. Next, they .give us an early train from Wheeling, which furnishes ua daily papers with Associated Preaadinatchea at least two lioura and o half earlier than theChartiers road does; this train alaogirea farmer* living along the line an opportunity to do a day'a ahoppling and go home on the afternoon train. Besides, in all matters connected with a milrnaii it tn il? ~i ? ... . ...~j U.UO. m >v IKS lUlCIKII U1 onr people to patronise them in prefer* ence to the Chartiers. Itnilroml Excitement ln;Camberland. The citizens of Cumberland held a mass meeting Tuesday evening to'express their views concerning the project for the ex* tension of the Pennsylvania Railroad to that place, which is being resisted by the Baltimore & Ohio Company. Addresses were made strongly favoring tho exten* sion, and denunciatory of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad for "endeavoring to trouble the enterprise," and a preamble and resolutions adopted requesting the council to pass, and the Mayor to approve the ordinance authorizing the issue of $65,000 of city bonds to aid in the building of the new road, and that it be sub miueu 10 a vote 01 tuo. people on the 12tb of December. Local Live Stock Markets. The farmers of Lake county, Ohio, have adopted a scheme which, we think, could be profitably imitated by the agriculturist* of every county in the State. Every Saturday afternoon they have what can appropriately be termed a stock mar* ket. "If any man has a horse or other kind of stock to sell he can take it to one of these gatherings and be pretty sure to find a buyer, on the other hand, if a man wants to purchase any kind of stock, the meeting gives bim a chance to get what he wants without much trouble. It i> made a sort of general market day for stock, and is found to bo a great benefit to both Dtfyer and seller. Health Notes. Pereoae troubled -with neuralgia *111 be glad to town > cure.
