UK It t tl FMrtHntk street T r X JIV ft OAK T13BLL, , / rtrfunn iid vaomnou. (/ KHIDAY? !DEC? SS, 1S77. Abont Narrow Mange. Our tenerable friend, the City Tr?unrer, Mr. D?y, gut ui jeiUrday > little o( hla experience on the Wuhington A Wayneiburg Narrow Oup, during bii mint holiday excursion to Waynesburg. Ho aaya that about lour boure art con* earned cn the trip, (Iwenlyelghl milea) one ol them In waiting at the hall way paving point lor the other train?and that the road ! aa yet too crude (or fut travel. Ill ounei are Tery aharp and lu grader T?ry ettep, and, In addition, it la eminently a pubiio high way, inasmuch aa the earl atop wherenr they are hailed elttier lor passengers or ireignt. roe people who travel are not, generally peaking, 'in a hurry. They remember the old Blow goiog stage and aro satisfied. They can more a little faster and far more comfortably by rail than by the old fashion, and it accommodates their wante and wiiheeao much better than they were evar accommodatcd before that they are jasfc "pleased to death" with the change? I with the idea of having a railroad of their 'own?with the seme of being at last able to go somewhere by the ears like other people. -M The grades are perhaps too steep and lie carves too sh&rp'on the W. W"(arrow Gauge, but it ie the peouliar jr mauty (ourve lines are always lines of weaoty) ie well as the crowning merit of S /narrow guages that they, more than the |/ standard roads, admit of sharp curves j and steep grades. They are therefore the roads of all others for a hilly and rough country, tnd by running at a speed \ i of 10 to 15 miles per hour, they answer / all the purposes of safo'and speedy local travel. Their mission is not to compete with great through lines, but to open up regions otherwise inaccessible to active trade and contact to the world, and thus act as feeders to the great through lines, d just as tho common country roada are ? stow feeders to the same lines and to the rivers of the land. Their sphere is to af* ford the people at this season of the year, when the roads are so nearly impassable, facilities for getting their produce to market. Just at this time we are reading in the Western papera that business is seriously blockaded owing to the condi* tion of the country roaile. The farmers can't ship their produce, and consequent* ly can't psy their bills, and consequently the country merchants can't pay the job* '^.-JJers in Cbicsgo, Kansas City, St. Louis andTndianapolls, and thus the wheels of trade are blockcd. AU0 uiBbici ui luaiiD uun a uiuoi nuportant bearing on the value of country property. Within an hour's ride of the city of Baltimore, according to tbo Sun, the qaeation of contiguity to a railroad regulates tbo value of the place, and makes a difference of one-half in its value. A place six miles from a country depot, which can only be reached in the winter over a road Into which a horee pinks to liU knees and tho wheels of a wagon half way to their hubs, will sell, perhapa, for $40 per aore, whilo if the same place was immediately alongside of the railroad it would sell for $100 per aore. The wear and tear, expenso and i vexation, of getting to and from a counI try place through tho mud depreciates its value immensely in the estimation of the man who desires to raise produco for frequent shipment to the city markots. Of course narrow gaugo roads can never take the place of common road*, hut inasmuch as they can be built and kept up cheaper than a well macadamized road, they undoubtedly have a rairaion before them in the way of penetrating into localities where it would not pay to build a road requiring low grades and wide curves and a great deal of business to keep it in efficient working oondition. The little Pennsboro & Harriaville narrow gauge road in Ritchie oounty, in this State, pays expenses and accumulates a surplus, and so does tbesix miles anu a hall of road between St. Clairavlllp and Quincy: and eo, no far as we see, do most of the narrow gauges of the oountry, especially those that have been built in the cheap times since the panic. Tbia reminds us not only that there is talk of building a narrow gauge along the bore between hero andParkersburg,but hot nnr nuloklinra nvor nt Mt Plamnnt have all of a sudden waked up to the importance of a better connection with tie world than they now possess. Hence we read in the last Martini Ferry Newt the following paragraph: " We learn that citiaena of Mount Plei * sant are talking up a narrow gauge road from that nlace to Martin's Ferry. Jf they not only talk it up but worife it up we are much mistaken if they do not find it the beat speculation they have ever engaged in. We aball at the earliest convenient season lay before them facts and figures to prove this assertion. In the meantime go on good friends, go on. The narrow guage is the road of the future. A good friend who pose??es rooro than . the ordinary amount ol sagacity predicts that tie next ten years will witness the construction and completion of more narrow gauge roads in Ohio than there are railroads now iu operation in the State." In addition to thia Jit. Pleasant Narrow Gauge, the Ntvi warmly advocate* the extension of the 8t. Clairaville road from Qninoy to Bridgeport. Wc observe alio that the Steubenville Qcmttu of yesterday evening has a fervent exhortation ?? it vw lue j>vuj'ifc vi tun iu ginnji IIIO importance of the Will* Creek Narrow Gauge." The tone of the article is rather despondent about the buiineM outlook at 8teubenvllle. We quote from it a* follows: "It looks to ui aa if our people were * going to tit down and let the other river towns leave ua awar behind. Bellaire is moving right ahead ua. East Liverpool is a verv busy town. Steubenville la dull, and business men are losing ileah in consequence of the bluea. We ought to and most do something to revive our drooping business spirits. The new road on the other side of the river will be in operation next month, and it is the testimony of all that this road will injure Steubenville, but it will be the making of Wellaburg. Now, should we go to work and build the Wills Greek road it would bring to us the business of a scope of oountry that would surprise us." In addition to this Wills Greek enterprise, a movement Is in progress at Steubenville to build a narrow gauge to Richmond, In Jefferson county, to be known ae the Island Greek 6 Richmond railroad.

Devotional extremes were conducted by Her. 8. E. Wilson, of the Difciplea' Church. Mia ute? of veaterday were read, and the roll was called. F. H. Crago asked the privilege of reading an extract from a letter juat received from J, A. Sharpies*, County Su? nerintendent of Mineral county, which is as follows: "We enrolled thirty-five teaohern today. There are only forty-one teachers in the county. Our start is excellent, and the teachers come up to the work with a will to do. 1 am much pleased at the opening. Say tctyour teachers that we send them greeting*, and wish that they may throw out an influence that shall extend from valley to valley until we shall feel it at the eastern base of the Allegheniea." The subject of spelling by advanced classes was taken up by Rev. J. H. Aughey by request, as W. E. Mason, the Instructor, was absent, A class was called tld .AVA.,1 ilitfa.Mt malloul* ?i?? lented. After recess the subject of ratio and proportion ?u presented by Samuel Kobinaon, by conducting a recitation in tbe name. The Inntltnte then proceeded to the election of officers, which resulted as follow* : W. M. Wirt, President; J. W. P. Bied. David Bon nr. T. J. Parsons and Samuel Robinson, Vice Presidents; W. 8. Powell, Corresponding 8ecretaryj L. G. Brock, Recording Secretary; Mira India Evans, Secretary; F. V. Yoho, Auditor. AFTERNOON. Singing. L. G. Brock spent a short time in explaining VHolbrook'a system of diagrams." He showed that he was well informed on tbe subject. W. C. Wallace gave his plan of teaching descriptive geography. His plan ia to begin at home, and impress the minds with something they have seen if possible. The subject was further discuiBed by a number of the teachers. This was followed by a talk to tbe teachers on the subject of "Why so Many Teachers Fail" by F. H. Crago, and many teachers aviated the discussion by asking questions at the close. The Committee on Time and Place of Next Meeting reported a* follows: Time, last Monday of September, 1878, aud place, Moundsville. The Committee on Resolutions and Obituaries reported as followu: Raolud, 1." That the law requiring teacher* to attend Institutes is well calculated to raise the etandard of schools. 2. That we consider institute* conducted by the teacher* of the county of more practical advantage than those conducted by a special instructor. That we recommend tho use of White's County and District map in our schools and would repectfully request' the various Boards of Education to purchase them for the schools of their various districts. 4. That we rccommend the adoption of a text book containing oral and written arithmetic. 3. That the thanks of the Institute are due Rev. J. H. Aughey for the very able manner in which he has instructed its members. 0. That wo cordially extend our thanks to those louies and gentlemen lurnishing music for the Institute. 7. That in the opinion of this Institute the Electic system of geographies is far superior to Mitchell's in every respect, and we favor its adoption in the schools of the Stato. 8. That we approve the action of the Board of Examiners in deciding to raise the standard of teachers' examinations. Crantaud 18S0--Somc Plausible l*jcnl Objection* to I1U Candidacy in ttont Year. Cor. of Philadelphia Pre*; "General Grant and 1880" is a suggestive combination which one hears on every aide and sees in every newspaper. General Grant will not be a candidate for the Presidency in 1880. And why? Because, under the Constitution of the United States, he will be ineligible to hold that high otlice for the space of fourteen years after he shall have seam set foot within the United States. The provision of the Constitution which creates this ineligibility reads thus: "No person, except a natural-born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time (of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that oiBce who shall not have I attained to the age of thlrty'five years, and h**n hurt**** ?'iL;~ ?i. 1 ?j?.- >. iHwtm wwnnine United States. In the lirat and last provlsiono ol this claim) the framera of the Constitution say, in effect: "It would be dangerous to intrust tbe powera which we propose to vest in the President of the United 8tate? in the hand* ot a person likely to be imbued with monarchical principle*." The Supreme Court of the United States has defined, to dome extent, the application . of tbit constitutional inhibition, For instance, it haa decided that it does not anply to a person sent abrotd m Minister, Consul, Embassador,etc. Hence James Buchanan, who was once our Minister at the Court of St. James,afterwards became President of the United States. With General Grant tbe case is widely different. He went abrotd among the Kingdoms of tbe earth intending to stay for years. He went to examine into the different forma of Kingdoms and Ernfires, into tbe cause and effect of ab?oute and limited monarchies. And who knows with what uew ideas of "Cwsarism" his brain way be effected before he returns. The framers of the Constitution wisely provided that a person who docs this shall be allowed, upon his return to this land, where every man ia potentate and none a subject, to cool bis heels and his head for fourteen years, amid tho practical working of "institutional liberty under constitutional government," before he shall be given b chance to put into execution any of his contemplated count d<tm. Let us heur no moreot Grant (or Pr?ident In 1880, So uota It be. H. 3. D, Philadelphia, Pa, Da. 18, 1877. College Auoclullon Meeting.

The day was occupied in the dUcuialos ?[ the ?ubj?U -Ioilruotion, b7 Lecture" and "Philosophic and Rhetorlo Languages." A ainaular Modal tioanUal. CwcmjilTi, December26,?A burglary waa committed In tbli city an en early hour yeiterday morning which will bate an Important bearing upon the TytuiDickey omM, Mlae Dicky, ayoung woman of wealth and of great beauty, wbo formerly moved in the flrit circle* of aoolety In Cincinnati and the lurroundiug cltlea, recently brought mil agatnat John B. Tyttu, ?on of a wealthy piper manufacturer at Illddlatown, for baatardy. Mlu Dickey'e child waa born four yaara ago, and her diegraoe wai kept a profound aecret until a few weeka iince. when the woman who had charge of the child wrote to Mill Dlckey'a relatlrei. Suit waa then brought agalnat Tytua for breach of proulae, damagee being placed at $20,000, and alio a criminal lull tor bastardy, The preliminary examination, held a few dayaelttce, diacloeed the fact that a phyaIclan in thla city named Dr.McCarthy, of No. 100 Weat Seventh atreet, attended Mlu Dickey at the time her child waa born, and had In hie poaaeealon a aerlea of letters and other document* ahowing that Tytua paid all blila growing out of the case and acknowledged iile responsibility in the affair. Thla package of napera waa yeaterday'morning atolen from MrPtrlkv'a hnni*hwahnrolif who effected an entrance through a front win* dow. Dr. McDarthy believes the burglar had no other motive in entering the houie than to secure these papers, and cites as proof of this that a gold watch, lving in plain sight, was left untouched. The interest in the scandal has been great from the start, owing to tbe prominence of the fiarties involved, but this event has made t intense. Other gentlemen of the highest social position in Cincinnati are accused of improper relations with Miss Dickey years ago, and the destruction of this evidence may enable the defemie to shift tbe responsibility for her ruin upon their shoulders. It in said that $10,000 worth of notea were also taktn by the burglar. Latbb.?A man named Henry Courtis has been arretted as the man who com* mitted the burglary.
