Thk reported suffering in several'coun
ties of this State appeals with eloquen
force to those West Virginians whos

been denied promptly the Intklliobjjck:
does not doubt that before this Wheelinf
would have lent a helping liailil.

Wheeling is not able to do what sh
could have done in other years. Many c
her people who would give if they coul
are unemployed. Oar Income as a peopl
has been considerably diminished by th
industrial depression. But tor a north
object so near at home the I.ntkluokkck
believes that the people of Wheeling n il
find succor.
The Intilugxncbr, therefore, kegs t
suggests meeting of citizens to conside
what ought to be done and what can b
done to help the needy. If it bn though
well to make further inquiries, the meel
ing would doubtless be able to institut
an investigation that would be promp
and thorough. Wheeling was helped i
her distress of a year ago. She has neve
been deaf to tho appeal of suffering.

I spoke ol in my last letter la a "newse
paper road." It was built and owned by
e the proprietors?of the Boston Herald, who
conceived tbo plan and built it with jour*
9| nalistic promptitude and vigor. It is a nare
row gauge road three feet between the
y rails, is well constructed and equipped and
is the pioneer of what some consider a
great railroad Bysteui. You would be surprised
and pleased with its exquisite para

of the conductors. Tho directors

on the road, among them were Mr.

for Florida, and Mr. PulsilTer.
J There are various settlements and proI
grefsivo towns about Sanford and Tampa,
Orlando being the principal, a place ol
some 3,000 inhabitants. Land that could
k have been bought at Orlando three years
ago at $10 an acre is now selling at $1,000.
Any land within a mile of the town centre
y is held at not le<s than $1,000, whilo man v
a acres in town at many thousands. Among
the places are Winter Park, Manatee anil
Kissimme. You cannot realize the im"
mense increase in price of land.- I met a
. Mr. Chase, who secured 100 acres as his
homestead, now Winter Park. It cost
- him $14 for the 100 acres. It is now laid
? out as a town cite, beautifully cultivated,
and the price is now $1,000 per acre,

consisting of clocks and show cases. The
most valuable part of the goods was in the

Pittkrv, March 28.?The University
host race between Cambridge and Oxford
came off this morning. The river banks
, were lined with spectators. The water
was smooth and the conditions favored the
Oxford crew. Both got off well together.
Oxford soon took the lead, and maintained
it to tho end, winning by two lengths.
London, March 28.?According to the
latest information, the victory for Oxford
was more decisive than at first reported.
They won tho race by three lengths, instead
of two. The time of the race was 21
minutes, 30 seconds?a trifling improve;
ment over the time a year ago, when the
record, was 21 minutes 30 seconds. The
improvement is not bo great as anticipated,
in view of the finer weather and smoother
me refillll oi me race was in accoruanco
with the betting. This at the start was 5
to four in favor of Oxford. During the
Brit quarter mile the boats kept pretty
evenly together. Then Cambridge made
a spurt, and pushed her boat slightly
ahead. This advantage was maintained
only a short time, for by the end of the
first mile the.Oxonions had drawn up
even with their rivals once more, and bv
the time the Hammersmith soap works
wero reached, a half-mile further on, they
. were well in the lead,
Cambridge strugulod manfully, bnt at
Hammersmith Bjidge all hope of their
success was practically abandoned. They
seemed to be fdone for," and the race already
as good as won. Oxford, from this
point, continued to increase the distance
between the boats, and at Chiswlck Church
they were three good lengths ahead and
rowing a nice, clear stroke. The Cambridge
crew was here steering badly, their
boat running dose to the Middlesex shore.
Oxford rowed easily toward the close, and
came in at the finish in excellent form,

London, March 28.?Rumors have prevailed
to-day of bad faith on the part, of
the Ministry, that the calling out of the
resorvesis merely a ruse to lull the suspicions
of the Conservatives, and that the
reports of phenomenal activity in preparing
naval vessels for service have been
secretly prompted by the Admirality.witli
a view of frightening ltussia If possible,
and at the same time popularising the
Government with tho masses, who are
red hot for war. It is asserted in high
quartern that Mr. Gladstone has nover
dreamed ot going to war in the lost retort,
hut will, when no longer able to continue
this Mime of bluff, have recourse to the
doubling tadica so often pursued it
late in dealing with foreign questions,
and that Kngland is to bo again treated
to humiliation as much greater than the
Gordon episode as the scene of that disgraceful
drama is inferior in importance
to Russia and her Asiatic dependencies.
The plain answer to such rumors is that
the preparations for war are real and earnest,
and far greater that the utmost necessities
of the Egyptian ariny would demand
were it increased by four times its present
strength. The government is sending all
its energies to place the empire in an eflicient
state of defence, and the situation is
such now that ltussia must consent,to
sacrifice to some extent her prestige if ahe
desires peace, or?acontinmncy not likely
to happen?the whole Afghan dispute
must be submitted to arbitration.
Bismarck is generally conceded to be
tlio supreme arbiter ol Europe, and that
autocrat has shown no disposition to interfere,
hut rather chuckles over the misfortunes
of bis powerful neighbors. It is
difficult to perceive where the peacemaker
is to come from. Italy, France, Austria,
and even despised Turkey, hope to benellt
by a collision between ltusaia and Kngland.
Already negotiations are pending
for a partition of the Uanubian principalities
and tbo other provinces
wrested from Turkey in 1878, With
these are coupled projects for tho cession
of other territory in Africa, which
will appease the insatiate greed and asuage
tlie jealousies of die Continental powers.
The treaty ol Berlin,-in these negotiations,
is regarded as having lapsed, and
several of the parlies in Interest have gone
to far as to map out accurately the meets

is more than suspected of foaterin?
this nilscbievoiis spirit, and would doubtleas
hail with pleasure the rumored alliance
between Russia and Turkey. The
Utter, howover, is not bo thou?htof.
It Turkey lias over entertained such a
proposition it has been merely for the purpose
of forcing England's hand. Sho has
nothing to gain and all to fear from Russian
triumphs, ltussia could not restore
Turkey's lost European possessions in the
facp Of t||0 unanimous public bentiment
on the Continent, even If she so desired.
Such an alliance would he mora absurd
than (hut of the lion and jackal, for when
Russia had Bniahed with the prey Turkoy
could help her to hunt sho would turn on
tho "sick man" and rend bim for sport,
would disposeefiectually of any aid which
Turkey could glvo to her ancient enemy.
