' [FROM OCR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] CAMDEN, S. C., November 2. This vicinity is at present agitated upon two subjects, widely different in their essential quali? ties. The two are railroads and a religious revi? val. The latter, however, is confined to the fol? lowers of John the Baptist, and may be said to have culminated in the immersion of six newly made members on Sunday last, a cold and windy, or "raw and gusty day," which made sold immersion a thing to be shuddered at. In reference to the i allroad, I see that you have published the resolutions adopted by the late con? vention held in this town. From them you can learn the spirit of the people cf Lancaster and ? Kershaw with regard to the enterprise. That Lancaster is determined to have an outlet by rail is a foregone conclusion, and that her peo. pie act in harmony with Kershaw ls also evident. Thoeole question requiring solution is, "with what corporation 6hall we associate ourselves T"' The South Carolina Central Railroad offers Its assistance, provided the people along Its proposed route subscribe one-fourth of the requisite amount, in money or land at Its assessed value. But they refuse 40 come by way of Camden, unless the branch of the South Carolina Railroad is in some manner disposed of to Its advantage, either by be? ing taken up from Ringville to Claremont and turn? ed round to Sumter, or so disposed of as not to com? pete with the Central Road. Knowing that there would or might bc Borne difficulty in negotiating this, the convention resolved to lay before tho Board of Directors of thc South Carolina Railroad a copy of the resolutions adopted,in order that they might see the advantage to be derived by ?neem by building the railroad from Camden by Charlotte themselves, under .the charter of the "Wateree and North Carolina Railroad." Should thc South Carolina Railroad Company build under this charter, the Cot?tral Road would find its terminus at Sumter, for thc reason that it could not compete with both the Co' ambla and Charlotte and the Wateree and North Carolina Railroads. The very object of the Cent al Road would bc thereby defeated. Should, however, they see Jt not to make the extension to Charlotte, the'Jentral Road will be built, and a nearly dlrec. route be established from Charlotte to thc seabo trd. The South Carolina Rallr >ad can secure to Itself [ the rich bait thus tempting ?y offered and within its reach. KERSHAW. THE GEORGETOWN ELECTIONS. The folowlng ta I?

The Sparten says: "Our town wa? Ulled on Monday with our friends from the country. Nothing of special Importance occurred. Our magistrates seemed to be kept busy in making or preparing work for the next term of court. Thc sheriff attracted a large crowd to see what Induce? ments he bsd to offer In the way of of real estate." The Crops. The Soartanbnrg Spartan says: "We are glad to hear that the corn crop of this district is much better than was expected. It is hoped that enough will be cribbed to supply oar wants with? out foreign importation. Cotton ls turning out well from the gin, but very scantily from thc field. From all we can learn, we fear that half ls too large a fraction to indicate our cotton crop." Sales-Day in Newberry. The Newberry Herald says : "There were more people in town on Monday than a man of moderate muscle and energy could shake a stick at; the courthouse square was crowded, and all the streets radiating to that common centre were full of humanity, common and otherwise. The dark element were largely and strongly represent? ed, some with sticks, some with guns, (they never visit the metropolis without an old musket, rifle or single-barrel shot gun.) and all with more or less money, which was laid out prodigally. Trade was high/and the mercantile persuasion in full feather and good odor," Survivor's Association. A Survivor's Association for Spartauburg Dis? trict was formed ou Monday. The following oltlcer3 were elected : G. W. li. Legg, president ; Jos. Walker, J. Banks Lysle, and T. J. Moore, vice presidents; H. II. Thomson, secretary; E. H. Bobo, treasurer. It was resolved that *'an.v person who has been an officer or soldier in thc Confederate army and honorably discuurged therefrom, may become a member of this association by enrolling his name with the secretary, and paying to the treasurer one dollar." The following gentlemen were appointed dele? gates to attend a convention to be held in Charles? ton on the isth of November next : J. II. Evins, J. H. Blassingame. C. E. Fleming, T. J. Muon , Wm. M. Foster, H. II. Thomson, E. ll. Bobo. J. Earle Bomar, J. C. Wlusmith, J. Buuks L.vslc, Wm. Choice. . ' Judge Orr. At a meeting of thc Har held at Newberry Court? house, on October 27, the following were adopted: Resolved, That the Bar of Newberry lender to his llonor, Judge Orr, their sincere thanks for holding, at their request, thc special term of the Court of Common Pleas for this county, which is now drawing to a close. - Resolved, Thut the manner lu which he has dis? charged the laborious duties which thus devolved upon him, in disposing of the vast accumulation of business on our dockets, aud in the trial of cases of great magnitude and importance, entl; ties him to our highest praise as an able, impar? tial and enlightened jurist, and has won for him the admiration and esteem of our people. Resolved, That the patience and courtesy which have characterized his conduct on the bench has made his administration of justice and his inter? course with the Bar and community of the most agreeable and pleasant character. vi** Resolved, That our brother, Colonel S. Fair, bc requested to present the above resolutions to Ins Honor in open court, and that ' they be published in the newspapers. Lynch Law. Thu Sumter News, alluding to the recent burn? ing ol the store of Mr. D. G. Robinson, in that county, says: "We are palued to hear that two similar occurrences have taken place, one at the store of Mr. DuBose, and the other nt that of Mr. Tindall. These acts were committed by a party of men tn disguise, ard are supposed to" bc a retri? bution for the habitual purchase of seed cotton from persons not authorized to seU it. The pro? vocation is great; thc farmer has been robbed of the fruits of his toil, of that upon which he rolled for the support of his family, and to pay for sup? plies, perhaps, furnished to the thieves them? selves; to pay his taxes for the support of a gov? ernment '.hat fails to protect him-or to save the remnant of his property from sacrifice at a sher? iff's sale-while the stolen crop is sold somewhere, to men who must know that it is stolen. We do not accuse the men whose stores have been de? stroyed with being engaged tn this infamous traf? fic. We know nothing about it. But there are men who keep their stores open all night for thc reception of seed cotton, and a great deal ol' cotton has been stolen from the-tlelds." The Fire Fiend. The Edgeileld Advertiser says: "On Wednesday night, 27th ultimo, the gin house of Mrs. Gregory, near Riehardsonville, was destroyed by fire, with a loss of five bales of colton. Late on Monday afternoon lust, shortly arter the hands had deliv? ered and stored their day's picking, the giu house of John Ralnsford, Esq., at his Burt place, was dis? covered to be on Ure. It was totally consumed, and with it, sixty bales of eotton. On the same evening, a few "hours later, however, the gin house of Mr. Charlie Mathis, living a mlle below the Pine House, was also discovered to be burn? ing. It was destroyed, with sixteen bales of cot? ton. These plantations are about three miles apart. Nothing ls known as regards the origin of the fires, but the striking coincidence of two neighboring gin houses being burned on the same evening," very naturaUy suggests the torch of the incendiary." The Darlington Democrat says: "The barn of Mr. W. P. Gee, containing six thousand pounds of fodder and about two hundred bushels of choice cotton seed, was destroyed ,by fire early in the evening of the 30th ult. Th? fire was undoubtedly the work of Incendiaries." THE CONFEDERATE DOLLAR. Opinion of Chief Justice Chane, ih Fall Enforcement of a Vendor's Lien in a Contract Entered into under the Late Confederate Government-Thc Confed? erate Dollar and its Status in the Contract and after thc War. The following important opinion delivered in the Supreme Court or the United States on Monday last, ls of so much interest that Southern readers will hardly be content with the telegraphic abstract already given in THE NEWS. We there? fore publish the decision in full, as pronounced by Chier Justice Chase: THORINGTON VS. SMITH 4 HARTLEY-OriNTON OP THE COURT BY CHIEF JUSTICE CHA8E. This is a bill in equity for the enforcement or a vendor's lien. lt ls not denied that Smith k Hartley purchased Thorington's land, or that they executed to him their promissory note for part or thc purchase money, as .set forth in bis bill; or that, if there was nothing more in the case, he would bc enti? tled to a decree for tl? amount of the note and interest, and for the sale or the land to satisry the debt. Hut lt is insisted, by the way or defence, that the negotiation for the purchase or the land took place, anti that the note in controversy, pay? able one day arter dnte, was brade at Montgome? ry, In the State of Alabama, where fill the parties resided in November, 1864, at which time the authority of thc United States was excluded rrom that portion or the State, and the only currency, in use consisted of Confederate Treasury notes, Issued and put in circulation by persons exercis lng the ruling power of thc States in rebellion, known ns the Confederate government. It was also insisted that the laud purchased was worth more than three thousand dollars in lawful money; that the contract price was forty five thousand dollars; that this price, by thc agreement ol the parties, was to be paid In Con? federate notes; that thirty-five thousand dollars were actually paid in these notes; and thal the note given for the remaining ten thousand dollars was to be discharged in the same manner; ?iud it ls claimed on this state of facts, that the vendor is entitled to no relief In a court of the United States, and this claim was sustained in the court below, and the bill was dismissed. The questions before us on appeal are these: First, can a con? tract for the payment of Confederate notes, made during the late rebellion, between parties rebiding within thc so-called Confederate States, bc en? forced at allin thc courts or the United States ? Second, can evidence be received to prove that a promise expressed to be for the payment or dol? lars was in ract, and for the payment or any other than lawful dollars of thc United States' Does the evidence m the record establish the fact that thc note for ten thousand dollars was. to be paid, by agreemcnt of the parties, in Confederate notes? The first question is by no means free rrom diffi? culty. It cannot be questioned that thc Confede? rate notes were Issued in furtherance or an un? lawful attempt to overthrow tho Government or the United States by Insurrectionary force. Nol? ls it a doubtful principle of law that no contract made lu aid of such an attempt can bc enforced through the courts or the country whose govern? ment ls thus assailed. Hut was thc contract of the parties to this suit a contract of that charac? ter-can it be fairly described ns a contract in aid or the rebellion? In examining this question, thc state ot that part or thc country in which it was made must bc considered. It ls familiar history that, early iu 1801, the authorities or seven States, supported, as was alleged, by popular majorities combined, for the overthrow or the National Union, and for thc establishment, within Hs boundaries, of a separate and independent con? federation. A governmental organization, repre? senting these States, was established at Mont? gomery, In Alabama, first under a provisional constitution, and afterwards under a constitu? tion Intended to be permanent. In thc course of a few months four other States acceded to this confederation, and thc seat of thc central au? thority wah transferred to Richmond, lu Virginia. It was by the central nutliority thus organized, and under its direction, that thc civil war was carried ou upon a vast scale against the Govern? ment of the United States for more than four years. HR power was recognized as supreme In nearly the whole .of thc territory of the States eon federated. lt was the actual government or all the insurgent States, xcept those portions of them protected rrom Ito control by the presence ot the armed forces or thc national government. What was the precise character or this govern? ment tn contemplation or law? It is difficult to define it with exactness. Any dennitton mat may be given may not Improbably bc found to require limitation and qualification. But the general principles or law relating to de facto government will, we think, conduct us to a conclusion suffi? ciently accurate. There arc several degrees or what ls called defacto government. Such a gov eminent, in its highest degrees, assumes a char? acter very closely resembling that or a lawful government. This ls wheu the usurping govern? ment expels the regular authorities from their customarv seats and functions, and establishes Itself In their places, and so becomes the actual government of a country. The distinguishing characteristics of such a government ls that ad? herents to lt In war against the government de jure do not incur the penalties or treason; and, under certain limitations, obligations assumed by it in behalf of the country or otherwise will, in general, be respected by thc government (Injure when restored. Examples or this description or government de facto are found in English history. The statute ll, Henry VII, C. I. (Brit. Stat, at Large,) relievos from penalties for treason all persons who, In dc reucepr the king for the time being, wage war against those who endeavor to subvert lils author? ity by force or arms, though warranted In so doing by thc lawful monarch, (4 Bl. Comm., 77.) But this ls where thc usurper obtains actual pos? session or the royal authority of thc kingdom: not when he lias succeeded only in establishing his power over particular localities. Being in such possession, allegiance is due to him as king defacto. Another example maybe found in thc govern? ment of England under the Commonwealth, flrst ? by Parliament and afterwards by Cromwell, as Protector. It was not, iu thc contemplation of law, a government de Jure, but tt was a govern? ment tte facto in the absolute sense, lt made laws, treaties and conquests, which remained the laws, treaties and conquests of England ofter the restoration. The better opinion is that acts done in obedience to tills government could not bc justly ?cgarded as treasonable, though in hostility to the king de Jure. Such acts were proierted from criminal prosecution by the spirit, If not thc letter, of the statute or Henry the Seventh. It was held otherwise by the Judges hy whom Sir Henry Vane was tried for treason. (5 Stale Trials, iii?,) In the year following the restoration. But such a judgment in such a time lias little author? ity. it ls very certain that thc Confederate Govern? ment was never acknowledged by thc Untied States as a de facto government iu this sense, .nor was it acknowledged as such by foreign pow? ers. No treaties were made by it. No obligation of a national character were created by lt bind? ing, after its dissolution, on thc States which lt represented or on thc nationai governnieni. From a very early period of thc war to its close it was regarded as simply the military representative or the Insured ?on against the authority of the United States. But there ls another description or govern? ment, called by publicists government de facto, but which might, perhaps, be more aptly denom iuated a government or paruniouut Toree. Its distinguishing characteristic arc (l) that Its exis istence is maintained by active military power within thc territories and against the rightful authority for established and lawful government; and (2) that while it exists it must necessarily be obeyed in civil matters by private citizens, who, by acts of obedience rendered In submission to su?h force, do not become responsible as wrong doers for these acts, though not warranted by the laws ot the rightful government. Actual govern? ments or this sort arc established over districts dutering greatly In extent and conditions; they are usually administered directly bv military au? thority; but they may be administered also by civil authority, supported more oriels by military te rc e. One example of this sort of government is found in the case or Castine, or Maine, reduced to a British possession (the war or 1S12.) From the 1st or September, 1314, to the ratification of the treaty ot peace in 1816, according to thc judgment or the court, in the United States vs. Rice (4 Wheat., 253,) "the British Government exercised all civil and military authority over the place." Thc authority or thc United States over the terri? tory was suspended, aud thc laws or tho United States could no longer bc rightfully enforced there, or bc obligatory upon the Inhabitants who remained and submitted to thc conqueror. By thc surrender the Inhabitants passed under a temporary allegiance to thc British Government, and were bound by such laws, and such only, ns lt chose to recognize and impose. It is not to be Interred rrom this that thc obligations of thc peo? ple or Castine, as citizens or the United Slates. were abrogated. They were suspended merely by the presence, and only during the presence, ?r the paramount force. A like example is. found in the case ol' Tampico, occupied during the war with Mexico by thc troops of the United States. lt was determined by Mils court, in Fleming vs. Page (9 How., 614,) that although Tampico did not become a part of the United States In consequence or that occupation, still, having tome together with the whole State of Tamaulipas, of which lt was part, into the exclusive possession or the na? tional forces, it must be regarded and respected by other nations as the territory ot the United States. There were cases or temporary posses? sion or territory by lawfol and regular govern? ments at war with the country, ot which the ter? ritory so possessed was part. The central gov? ernment established for the Insurgent States dif? fered from the temporary governments at Castlno and Tampico in the circumstance that its authori? ty did not originate La lawful acts or regular war; but it was not on that account less active or less supreme, and we think that it must be classed among the governments of which these are exam pies. It is to he observed that thc rights and ob Igallons of a belligerent were conceded to it in its military character, very soon after the war began, from motives of humanity and ex? pediency, by thc United States. The whole territory controlled by it was thereafter held to bc the enemy's territory, and the inhabitants of that , territory were held In most respects for enemies. To the extent, then, of actual supremacy, however unlawfully gained, in all matters of government within its military lines, the power of the insurgent government cannot bc questioned. That supremacy would not justify acts of hostility to thc United States. How far lt should exercise them must be left to the lawful government upon thc re-establishment of its au? thority. But it made civil obedience to its au? thority not only a necessity but a duty. Without such obedience civil order was impossible. It washy this government exercising its power through an Immense territory that the Confed? erate notes were issued early bi the war, und these notes, in a short time, became almost ex? clusively the currency of theunsurgent States. As contracts in themselves, in the contingency of successful revolution, these notes were nullities, for except in that event there could be no payer. They bore, indeed, this character upon their face, for they were made payable-only "after a ratifica? tion of a treaty of peace between the Confederate States and the United States of America." While the war lasted, however, they had a certain contingent value, and were used as money in nearly all the business- transaction's of many millions of people. "They must be regarded, therefore, as a currency Imposed on the community by irresistible force. It sccni3 to follow as a necessary conse? quence from the actual supremacy of thc Insur? gent government, as a belligerent, within tho ter? ritory where it circulated, and the necessity of civil obedience on tho part of all who remained In it, that this currency must be regarded in the courts of law In the same light as ii it had been Issued by a foreign government temporarily oo cupying a part of thc territory of the United States. Contracts stipulating for payments lu that currency cannot be regarded as nude In aid of the foreign invasion lu the one case, or of the domestic Insurrection In tho other. They have no necessary relation to the hostile government, whether invading or Insurgent. They are trans-, actions lu thc ordinary course of civil noclcty, and, though they may indirectly and remotely promote the ends of the unlawful government, arc without blame, except when proved to have been entered Into with actual Intent to further the Invasion or insurrection. Wc cannot doubt that such contracts should bc enforced in thc courts of thc United States, after the restoration of peace, to the extent of their first obligation. The first question, therefore, must receive au affirm? ative answer. The second question, whether evidence ?an be received to prove that a promise made in one of the insurgent States, and ex? pressed to bc for thc payment of dollars, without qualifying words, was, in fact, made for thc pay? ment of any other than lawful dollars of the Uni? ted States, ls next to be considered. It is quite clear that a contract topsy dollars made between citizens of any State of the Union maintaining its constitutional relations witt: the national govern? ment ls a contract to pay lawful money of thc United States, and cannot be modified or ex? plained by parole evidence. ' But lt ls equally clear, If In any other country colas or notes de? nominated dollars should be authorized of differ? ent value from the colus or notes which are cur? rent herc under that name, that In a suit upon a contract to pay dollars made in that country evi? dence would be admitted to prove what kind of dollars was Intended; and, if it should turn out that foreign dollars were meant, to prove their equivalent value in lawful money of the United States. Such evidence does not modify or alter the con? tract, lt simply explains an ambiguity which, under the general rules of evidence, may be re? moved by parole evidence. We have already seen that thc people of the Insurgent States, under this Confederate Government, were, in legal contemplation, substantially lu tko same condition as inhabitants of districts of a country occupjed and controlled by an invading bellige? rent. Thc rules which would apply to the former case would apply to the latter, and, as lu the for? mer case, the people must be regarded as sub? jects of a foreign power, and contructs among them bc interpreted and enforced with reference to thc laws Imposed "by the conqueror, soin the latter ease the Inhabitants must bc regarded ns under thc authority of thc insurgent belligerents, actually established as the government of tue country; and contracts made with them must be interpreted and Inferred with reference to the condition of things created by the acts of thc governing power. It is said, Indeed, that under the Insurgent government the word doimisttiwcryimtnej^fta? ? mg as under *the Government of the United States; that the Confederate notes were never made a legal tender; and, therefore, that no evi? dence can be received to show any other meaning of the word when used in a contract. But lt must be remembered that thc whole con? dition of things in the insurgent States was matter of fact, rather than matter of law; and as matter of fact these notes, payable at a future and contingent day, which has not arrived, and eau never arlve, were forced into circulation as dollars, if not directly by the loglslatlon, yet Indi? rectly and quite as effectually by thc acts of thc Insurgent government. Considered in Hiern? ach es, and in the light of subsequent events, these notes had no real value, but they were current as value by irresistible force; they were the only measure of value which this people had, and their usc was a matter of almost-absolute necessity, and this gave them u sort of a value, Insignificant and precarious enough, lt ls true, but always having a sufficient definite relatlou to gold and silver, the universal measures of value, so that lt was easy to ascertain how much gold and silver was the real equivalent of a sum ex? pressed in the currency. In the light of these facts it seems hardly loss than absurd to soy that these dollars must be regarded os identical in kind and value with the dollars which constitute thc money ol' the United States. We cannot shnt our eyes to the fact that they were essentially dif? ferent in both respects, and lt seems to us that bu rule of evidence, properly understood, re? quires us to refuse, under the circumstances, to admit proof of the sense in which the word dollar was actually used in the contract before us. Our answer to the second question ls, therefore, also in the affirmative.. We are clearly of the opinion that such evidence must be received In respect to such contracts in order that Justice may be done between the parties, and that the porty entitled to be paid in these Confederate dollars eau only receive their actual value at the Unie ami place of the contract in lawful money of Hie United States. We do not think lt necessary to go into a detailed examination or the evidence in the record in order lo vindicate our answer to tho third question, lt is enough to say that lt has left no doubt in our minds that the note roi- ?io, Ouo, to enforce payment of which suit was brought in the Circuit Court, was to lie paid by agreement In Confederate notes, it follows that the judgment of the Circuit Court mus; be ?evers ed and ihe cause remanded for a new trial, in conformity with this .opinion. TEE STONEWALL JIOItllOR. A Woman's Self-Possession-Thc Drowning of the Man who Proposed to Save Her-The Caudle that Set thc Fire-A Murder in thc Struggle ?"ur Itlft. The Missouri Republican prints the follow? ing account of the remarkable experience or Anna Gurney: There was a young lady on board of the Stone? wall, about seventeen years of age, with whom Anna was well acquainted, and they kept togeth? er, on Wednesday evening, after supper, Anna invited her companion to go down with her on the main deck and sleep with her, as she had a comfortable berth. The women, being tired, di? vested themselves of their outer clothing and went to bcd, On tue deck there were several Italians who were drunk and noisy, one of whom hail a candle lu his hand, and carelessly placed lt on a bale of hay, setting lt ou lire. The alarm was Immediately given, and lu a second the boat was a sheet Of llame. Anna jumped up In lier night-clothes to save herself. All was confusion. She stood on the guards of thc boat as long as it was safe, (lin ing which she felt perfectly calm and self-possessed. A gentleman caine up and proposed that il' she would jump off with him into thc water lie wouid try and save her. Sift said, "N'o; try and save yourself; I think I can save myself." He Jumped oil", and she saw him drown. She stayed on Hie guards until she waa forced to jump Into the river or burn to death, as the boat tn. th at quarter bi came nearly enveloped in Hames. She made the plunge ! and went to Hie bottom. When she ernie up she caught hold of a rope, and thought il led to thc boat, but was a rope attached lo the spar, which had tumbled over into thc water. She pulled her? self along by thc rope until she came to the spar that had drifted under the burning sicamor. While here a post of thc burning cabin overhead fell down, anda portion struck her on the,should? ers, injuring her severely. By this time she got off the spar, and while holding, her hand was burned by drops of melted pitch, which trickled down. She being under thc guards, was saved rrom being crushed by the falling spars and smoke pipes. A gentleman at this time, who was struggling In the water, managed also to get astride or the spar. At this time the bursting or the coal oil cans covered the water with a liquid sheet or fire. As she expressed lt, "thc water was on fire." She and her companion held on to the spar until a boat came from Neeley's Lauding to their res? cue, a mile and a hau* distant, their safety being due to their position under the gnards. As near as can bc estimated, there were aboard the boat: Cabin passengers, 35; deck passengers, i6?; officers, 16; deck crew, 38; cabin crew, 20; total, 27f-. A group of men in the water sought to save themselves by the aid or a bale of floating hay, which was too small to float them all. A savage contest ensued for Its possession/all struggling to obtain a lodgment upon, it, when one more desperate than the rest was roused to demoniac passion, and drawing a knife, plunged lt into a companion's body, and the lifeless form rolled over into the current, which was reddened by his blood. Thc act of fiendish Impulse was speedily avenged, for the whole party are believed to have been drowned. ? URRENT NOTES. -The gas In New Tork is the subject of bitter complaint In the Journals of that city, who assert that there is no town In the Union furnished with such miserable light and charged such extrava? gant prices. -The Irou bridge at St. Louis, connecting the Illinois add Missouri shores of thj Mississippi River, is reported to have been commenced, and four hundred and thirty men, with all thc mo? dern steam appliances for excavating earth and moving heavy stones and timbers, are new at work. Thc bridge structure ls to be composed of three wrought and cast Iron arches, one of Ave hundred and fifteen feet In length, the other two four hundred aud ninety-seven feet each. Thc lower part of the bridge ls intended for the pas sago of railway trains; the upper for ordinary travel. -Sewage, as a manure, Ls now attracting great attention in England, and it ls asserted that thc members of the Metropolitan lioord of Works, of London, by their apathy on the subject, are con? niving at an enormous waste of money and ferti? lizing power by neglecting to utilize the sewage of London. The annual outflow.of the sewer water of London is estimated at one hundred and eighty millions of tons, and this refuse is calcu? lated to be worth nine farthings a ton. Hence, it is cont ended, valuable manure ls discharged Into thc Thames worth $7,500,000 per annum, or $20, 54." a day. -The suffocation of four persons at a fire in Liberty street, K6w York, has called attention in that city to tue*ncce38ity of constructing outside iron stairways to the tenement houses, which arc frequently crowded with human beings from the cellars to thc attics. Ladders leading to the roofs, scuttles and ropes have been tried, and fouud to be ineffectual. It ls asserted that within four years over thirty persons have been suffocated or burned to death in consequence of,the absence of suitable fire-escapes. Thc four persons who were suffocated in Liberty street, it is contended, could have been saved had thc firemen ascended to the roof of thc building, and then descended through thc hatchway, instead of attempting to force a passage upwards from below. -From tr% reports in the London papers, lt ls evident that thc people there have become much more expert than before at the business of mak? ing Thames tunnels. A new one, which has gone on without much cosmopolite notice, is now nearly completed from Tower Hill to the street of thc "Three Tailors"-Tooley-strcct-a distance of over 1300 feet, 300 feet or so shorter than our great Brooklyn bridge, that ls to be. The work was going on at the rate of nine feet lu twenty-four hours-a much more rapid speed than that of thc first Thames tunnel, which, for one cause or other, took twe've or thirteen years to complete lt. In the new tunnel people can hear thc sound of pad? dles and other noises on thc river overhead; but the arch Ls pronounced a perfectly safe one, and the listeners are Quittes pour la peur, as the French say. -Some of the Ideas proposed at the recent Woman's Parliament In New York are rather startling. A married woman ought to have a legal right to dispose In any way she may please of a share of her husband's income. According to that plan, an extravagant woman might a^engaatetof Jmnband'a aomiaga feefet* -hft pfc eelved them, and he would have no power to help himself. In cases of profligacy, thc money which properly belonged to husband and chil? dren could be withdrawn by the wife. Another speaker contended that children should be allow? ed greater freedom-that no article belonging to them should bc touched without their consent; .that any question they liked to put should bc answered, and that they should bc accustomed to the Idea that they arc to think and act- inde? pendently. It is generally supposed that In this country there ls not much room for Improvement in thc last-mentioned particular. -The Array and Navy Journal says that thc Navy Department proposes to take the defence of our habors out of thc hands or thc engineer corps, of thc army, entrusting it no longer to forts, but to monitors and torpedoes. The new torpedo corps ls being put Into an effective condition, and in case of need will prove itself a valuable auxili? ary. A new irou-clad ls in progress, embodying the main idea of the monitor, having an elonga? ted turret carrying rourtcen guns, five on each side and two each front and rear, thus command? ing ihe whole horizon with its artillery, and with? out changing thc position of its guns. It will carry sall and have telescopic masts, which'COO bc taken in when preparing for action, and a bowsprit that eau be triced up and got ont of the way of the forward guns, lt will carry five or six inches of iron armor, backed with forty-two inches of oak. These are, wc believe, the main feature of the . easel proposed, lt is expected to combine thc excellencies of the monitor with thc advantages of a broadside vessel. -Two or throe of the French newspapers or tho Republican side complain with bitterness of the lack of sympathy which they meet with in the United States and England. Thc Americans who reside in Paris are accused of being, to a largo extent, toadies of the court-ready to fra? ternize with anybody who will procure them ad? mission to court balls and festivities. It is de? clared that thc French opposition, which no doubt consists or thc most illustrious men of the country, linds more friends among any other class of foreigners than the Americans and Eng? lish. Certainly the articles or some of the London papers are offensive enough-the Tory journals even advising the Emperor to try another 2d or December. From thc French point ol view, this, as every one will understand, seems selfishness Itseir. On thc other hand, it is not clear how any class of residents arc to manliest their pref? erence for the opposition if they do preier lr. The most they can do is to abstain from ostenta? tious marks or regard for the powers that are In? stalled. JUST NOTICE.-NATIONAL FREED?
