Camden outfit to take advantage ol Walk
v er'fl opposition and run for Governor^
GnirrpN felicitates herself overthe fact
that the appeal from the decision of the
Circuit Court establishing her as the
connty seat of Taylor, has been refused by
the Supreme Court of Appeals. .
It is slated that Gen.1 Drahosh, of Park
ersburg, has secured a valuable Washing
ton appointment. The General has had
a hard row of stumps in his pursuit of
journalism at Parkersburg, and we hope
ho may find some balm in Giiead.
. Mr. Carboll P. Whiput, chief of the
Maasasaaahusetts Bureau of Statistics, fur
nishes somo figures in his report, just pub
lished pn the subject of convict labor,
which furnish somo means of arriving at
a conclusion as to the effect ot prison labor
on outside industries.
Mr. Wright hus gathered his informa
tion frum all the States aud Territories oi
the Union, aud classified it in tables show
ing thoindilstrios in which convicts are
,>?nployed, and comparing ike numbers so
employed with the number "out of jail"
engaged in the Same occupations. He
flnfls that there aro 129 penal institutions
in the couutfy?.tho inmates of which are
kept more or less at work. The whole
number of inmates of these institutions is
47,769, and the number employed in labor
of one kind or another, -10,12:.'. Of the lat
ter, 4,930*are engaged in-duties connected
with the prisons themselves, leaving :I5,192
to compete in general industries with'the
wholo force of tho "freo labor" of the
country. Of this last number, 23,524 are
'Employed at "skilled" Work, that is in
mechanical trades and various kinds of
manufacture, aud 11,00$ at "unskilled"
work, on furius and. plantations, in quar
ries and ininos, on roads and levees, Ac.
The number of convicts set down as farm
ers aud labdrers is 10,007. Neither this
" 'report nor the United States census fur
nishes information as to tho number of
persons in the country with whom they
are competing, but it is obviously so large
? that the competition is wholly insignifi
cant in its effoct upon the wages or oppor
tunities' for work of tho great mass of
laborers. The department of manufac
tures in which the largest amount of
prison labor is employed is that of boot
and shoe ranking. Convict Crispins are at
work in the penal institutions of 20
States, and the total number employed
is 6,681. The wholO number of persons
engaged in the same iudustry in these
Stntes is 129,989, and in tho United States,
135,889. Thus less than 5 peroent of the
boot and shoe making of the country is
drtneirt prison, in certain States, how
ever, the proportion is much greater. In
Now York, for instance, where it is a
prominent industry in the prisons, and,
not a"protainent oho obtsido, it is some
thing over 10 per cent. N^it in promin
ence is the manufacture of iron goods,
which is carried on the prisons of 14
States, and employs 3,604 persons. But
the whole number engaged in this in
dustry in the country is 137,616, bo that
little more than 2$ per cent of our iron
workers are toiling in prison-shops. In 17
States thero are 2,884. convicts em
nloved in furniture-making, and this
number ia about 5 per cent, of the whole
number Bet down to this employment;
2,202 make clothing .in eighteen different
States; the* whole number qf clothing
makers In tho country beiug 118,375, or
about iifty times as many; 1,087in sixteen
States are workers in stone, and consti
tute nearly 5 nor cent, of the stone-work*
ing force. Other prominent prison indus
tries are carriage making, toe manufac
ture of brooms, brushes, wooden ware,
hats, leather goods, and cigars and tobac
co. The ratio to 'outside workers varies
from a "fraction of' I per cent, to about 10
percent., but' in general, the variation Is
between 2 and 0 per cent.

Sure enough, two of your men gono from

cruel pleasure he swoops the board. What,
ouly two more men left, lie careful. Now
only one more movo possible. Qornered

Inl?r?l!nK iDformntiun Conecro*
In* Uie Lady Itonnilfol of tbla Age.
The Baroness Burdett-Coutts is proba- j
ily the only person living who would g
lave fonnd It necessary to deny moro than
mce that she had given $2,500,000 (or the
elief of the diatreas in Ireland; but when j
he atorv was told of her, the largeness of c
ler heart and her fortune alike made it ,
wily credible. Her annual, income as t
ie owner ol a half interest in the liistor
c banking house of Coutta & Co. was giy- 1
an at $000,000 several years ago, and it is
icarcely likely that it is less now, while 1
the record of her charity is simply ? mag
?ificent. She has endowed three Bishop- 1
rics (in Africa, Australia and IBritish Co
lumbia), at a coat, it is statea, little less t
than the sum she was said to have given
to the Irish. '
The magnificent Church of St. Stephen,
Westminster, with a parsonage and three i
adjoining Bchools, was built aud endowed
at her sole expense, and several other
churches amischools, notablva Magdalen
Reformatory, would not now; be in ex- '
istencehut for her efforts. She supplied i
the funds tor Sir Henry James topo
graphical survey of Jerusalem, and it is
quite certain that she would have; made
good her offer to supply the city with
water by rebuilding ;tbe aqueducts of-Sol
omon, had not the work been undertaken
(though afterward abandoned) by tlio gov
ernment. She endowed the Ideological
Professorship at Cambridge;shobaserect
ed more drinking fountains in more cities
than can be catalogued here; she assisted
Dr. Livingstone when he was in his great
est need; add a square of model dwell
ings was built by her around the Colum
bia Market, which also she built and
presented to .the corporation of Lon
d<Even this list does not exhaust her pub
lic charities, and in private she is reputed
to be no less munificent. But litUe can
be added to complete the life-story of this
"Lady Bountiful" of our age. She was
horn in 1814, and is the youngest daugh
ter of the late Sir Francis, Burdett, Baronet
Her fortune comes to her from her mater
nal grandfather, Sir Thomas Colitis, and
she assumed hiB name when she inherited
his property. This was in 1837, upon the
termination of the life interest of his
widow, who was Miss Mellon, the actress,
before he married her as his second wife,
and who died the Duchess of St. Albaus.
Sir Thomas Coutta' first wife, tho grand
mother of the subject of this sketch, was
Elizabeth Starkey, the daughter of a Lan
cashire peasant, who was a servant in
the employment of the banker s brother
until her marriage made her ono of the
Unit ladles of the Kingdom. The Baroness
received hur title in 1871. She received
the freedom of the Olty of London In 1872,
and eighteen months, later, the City of
Edinburgh similarly honored her. At tnu
ond of the last Busso-Turkish war the
Sultan decorated her with the grand
cordon of the Order of Medjidie in recogni
tionof her services to the wounded, lne
estimation in which she is held by the
people of England is shown by the fact
that when, in 1868, the reform procession
puHsed her house and she was recognized
at the window, a shout was raised, aud for
over two hours the air rang with the
criea of tho thousands who filled the street.
Wheeling Cor. Cltrkiburg Kew?.
I was asked the other day: "JIow
much money had been made and what
amount of dividends had beon declared
in January by the corporations in the city
and those adjacent and principally owned
by citizens of Wheeling?" Of course I
didn't know, but when my informant said
the dividends would touch- nearly half a
million, while the profits would swell the
net earnings to many thousands more, I
opened my optics and marveled like unto
the maiden, perhaps, when she first saw
the great "Kohinoor'' diamond in the
British Crown,-and exclaimed, involun
tarily, "Oh, if it were mine!" My won
der soon turned into doubt, and thenco
?into disbelief. An adjournment to a re
freshment stand, where' the problem
i could be demonstrated over tlie More
said nourishment to my entire satisfac
. tiou, was in order; and then, sure
enough, the figures were produced to
show that over $455,000 were divided up
? in dividends hut January by thtf nail
mills, blast furnaces, banks and other
joint stock concerns in and around the
city, and that in addition to these divi
dends there were over $250,000 of profits
which were not divided, but went over to
the surplus funds or stock. The amount
of capital represented in this calculation
was just $4,140,000 and the average divi
dend is a shade over 8} per cent on the
capital. The dividonds varied from 1G to
3 per cent. There are some corporations
in tho city which declared no dividends
and therefore are not included in the list
in any way. Of this entiro amount the
iron mills have made the lion's share.
The capital represented by them is nearly
$3,200,000; tho declared profits nearly
$409,000. It is they which nave made tho
bulk of the undeclared profits and which
they very properly hold back for future
Tilden and tirnnt.
Washington cor. SpringQclil Republican.
The Democrats continue shy about dis
cussing the question of their candidate.
The shadow of Tildon hangs over tho
party. There is a growing impression that
"the old man" means to capture tho nomi
nation again, and a growing fear among
his opponents?and they number an over
whelming majority of the Democrats in
both branches?that he may succeed.
Members report that they find evidences
in their districts that the samapeculiar
methods are being employed in his inter
est which were used so successfully in
1870, and thev dread a repetition of the
same result If Tilden could show a united
party behind him in New York, his op
ponents would have no hope of preventing
iie"noinination; as it is, many of them feel
far from confident that he can be shaken
ofT. Some of the most cloar headed Re
publicans have insisted all along that Til
den was tho predestined candidate of the
Democracy, and that nothing but death
could take himout of the way. Thoir faith
in his success only grows as time goes on,,
and nothing will please them more than to
find it justified by the event. Tilden is
unquestionably tho favorite Democratic
candidate with the Republicans, as Orant
is the choice of the Democrats for the Re

New York Expr??.
A good joke was unconsciously got off
recently on a local physician. In arrang
tng a patient's broken leg, he connected
with it a tackle having a flat-iron as a com
pensating weight, and toll the man's wife
to let it stay there until his return. She
wanted to use the iron next day bad, and
she used'ft. While at work she saw tho
doctor coming, and in her fright roplaced
the iron glowing hot on the tackle, lie
came in, examined the leg and took up the
hot iron. It dropped like lead, ahfl the
man of physic went .on an iraprdmptu
can-can, equaled only by tho vigorous use
he made of his tongue. Thore was music
there for half an hour, and he thinks yet
that woman put up a job on him
The Wheeling Beg'utrr has been pump
ing the Hon. Ben. Wilson, on the political
situation, State and National, and the re
sult reminds us of the opinion given by a
very prudent Doctor who had been called
in by over anxious parents to see their
child, and tfho after looking at the tongue
and feeling the pulse of this patient, in an
swer to the anxions inquiries of the parents
said: "There is nothing at all the matter
