The I'imnrM Chronicle says: "Tho
channels of commerce are to-day stuffed
so full of currency that every bank is
oversowing with surplus cash, money
is worth next to nothing and capital is
lowing out of the country to find employment
in Kit rope which itcannotfind here."
This is not the stuff that panics are made
'.f. In addition to a plethora of money
there is a slowly but surely reviving conJiJencc,
and conliden90 is more than half
the battle. j
Klsewiikhb "Duplex" writes about the
removal of the State Capital. The main
jtoint has been raised before, but it conies
now with additional interest. The Ixtkuioenceh
lias taken it for granted
that the Capital would be removed, yet
there are good lawyers who think the
.Supreme Court would decide against removal.
Wheeling is not suffering great
grief in contemplation of tho loss, but -if
the act is not lawful that presents tho subject
in another light. It is hard to say
what the Supreme Court would hold.

Tjik proposition to open the University
to women is not meeting with unqualified
approval. The Kanawha Gazette, Democratic,
and ono of the best balanced newspapers
in the State, fays:
Better lend onr energies toward making
the school a successful mule school than
to experiment with co-education. The
discipline and system of tho University
ur? not favorable to such an experiment,
which cannot i?ossibiy give the
.school higher rank and which may bo its
death blow. Wait awhile.
This is one of the severest criticisms ever
pifeil on the unhappy University. If
the discipline and system are not favorable
to the education of women, then tho
young men who attend that institution
are not having a fair chanco. Tho Intei.uoKxcKit

Iv dynamite is a sovereign baltn for all

' I/jsuqs, Jan. 25.?Tito west end ?l
Westminster Hall is full of wreckage
caused by yesterday's explosions. The
destruction of tlie magnificent stained
glass window at (lie end of the hall is
greatly lamented. It is believed that one
of the conspirators entered the crypt, passing
a policeman at tho entrance, and deposited
the infernal machine at the bottom
of the steps. The policeman removed
tho parcel which exploded, making a hole
in the floor thrco feet in diameter, twisting
iron railings and sinashiug the irou and
lead work of all tho wiudows in the
hall. The policeman's hair was Binged
and his face burned. His clothing was
torn from his body by the force of the explosion.
He is still alivo but there is no
hope of his recovery.
Tho man ami woman who drove from
the Parliament buildings immediately before*
the explosion and who wero arrested
011 suspicion have been liberated, the evidence
being insufficient to hold them.
The foundation o[ the hall is uninjured
but the roof is badl y damaged. The bases
of the statues of William IV and George
IV,which wero overturned, are greatly injured*
The elaborately carved oaken wall behind
the seats beneath tho gallery were
completely thrown down. The flooring of
the strangers' and Speaker's galleries is so
torn up that it is deemed unsafe to venture
across The Peers' gallery suffered
the moat damage. The- side galleries and
reporters' gallery were not injured. Tho
pared which caused the first explosion
was wrapped in brown cloth and was two
feet long uy one foot wide. A gentleman
complains tiiat the shock of the explosion
broke one of his Hood vessels.
The Queen sent a telegram to-day
of inquiry as to the condition of the .injured
policemen, Cox and Cole. A reply
was sent stating both were progressing favaribly.
The greatest indignation prevails
throughout the provinces. The outrages
were referred to and denounced in
all the cbarchcs to-day.
An inspection of tho Parliament building?
to-day shows that excepting the
beautiful window overlooking the staircase
at the south end of Westminster Hall,
scarcely a pane of glass escaped destruction.
The foundations of the building are
badly shaken. Tho roof pf the crypt, in
spite of its massive strength, was greatlj
damaged, rifts being visible here and there

Commons by some Saturday visitor. b\

damage was much greater than first i
po3ed. The western extremity of
House is a total wreck, and there is i
no doubt but the explosive was pic

work in that part of the building was s

J" time of his own at his disposal, he had requested
u friend to draft a bill for snch
\. purpose, which was the hill he nowsubmilted.
From the casual examination he
-c had given the matter he was of opinion it
,t was by no means perfect and would raise
,i questions as to the rights of the United
,t States, hut he introduced the bill this
m morning in the hope that the Judiciary
r. Committee might Ik? able to perfect a
? measure which could meet tho ends proposed.
The hill wyi read twice ami rei(

to be used by any other persons for any
u such' purpose shall be deemed guilty of
lelony/and, upon conviction in any court
ofthe United StaUs, shall bo punished by
imprisonment for a term of years and

inland abetting l>y skilled labor in the

knowing tlie uses to which they were to
H bi applied, or acting as agents for tlio
r Mrinctpals in such transactions, should be

j "iii^ttW tflrminer.
Section two provides that any person
