The V?m or Human Wishes.?There is no mere striking evidence of the vanity of human ambition than in the gropoaml to sell the honse of Mr. Jay ooke in Pennsylvania, and the transfer to a railroad company of the palace ol the late Mr. LeGrand Lockwoou, of Con? necticut. Ten years ago Mr. Cooke and Mr. Lockvraod -were among the richest, most enterprising and most celebrated merchants , of this . country. Wealth 'rolled upon them in the fatness of a spring tide. With wealth came the am? bition to found a family and a home?an ambition which, whatever we may think of our democratic and liberal institu? tions, seems to be an instinot of human nature. ' Mr. Oaoke built his bouse at Ogontz, which, from reports, cost hlhi more thane $1,000,000. The auctioneer, the other day, oouid ?nly obtain a bid of 435Q.000. Although the sale was Under decree of bankruptcy, it was postponed. Mr. LookwoodVpaJase at Norwolk cost $1,250,000, and was recently offered for salo at $110,000. This, the reporter in? forms us, "is probably the finest private dwelling in America, ? constructed of solid blocks of granite, finished inside with rosewood and mahogany and cedar of Lebanon." Mr; Lockwood is dead, and a railroad corporation possess his do? main. Mr. Cooko is a bankrupt, and the auctioneers are vainly asking the world to buy for a song what cost him .a for? tune. How true it is, as the wisest of men once said, "All is vanity and vexa? tion of spirit." A few days .ago the United States steam frigate California was sold at San Francisco for $23,650. She was one of the frauds built in 1866 and cost $1,500, 000, which was a $1,000,000 more than she was worth. She was utterly unsea worthy and was shelved St an early pe? riod, presenting' a fair sample or the wonderfully economical management of our naval affairs. The San Francisco Chronid*, referring to the California, makes tbo following suggestive state? ment: \Wrf- ?H "The family of which she was a mem? ber consisted of'eight sisters, all of whieb have been of little account The Java, New York, Pennsylvania and An tietarn are all on the stocks since 1864, and the Illinois disappeared very myste? riously in 1873. The Ouerriere on her first trip to the Mediterranean unfortu? nately ran aground on the Italian coast, was taken on, repaired at a cost of $100, - 000, and returned to New York, where she was sold in December, 1872, for $54,000. Her Original cost was $1,154, 325.10, and her age seven years. The Delaware, after a trip to the East Indies, has returned to New York unfit for any future service. ? Thus it will be seen that of the whole family only three have, for n space of three years, done any sea ser? vice, although $10,000,000 have been ex? pended on these ships. The aggregate tonnage of theee eight vessels was 19,020 tons, and intended to carry 126 guns." ConxEcnoN.?The Philadelphia Press says: "The officers of the United States Centennial Commission desire to say that on erroneous'report is in circulation concerning the selection of orators, poets, and marshals for the opening of the international exhibition and centennial celebration next year. No selection has been made and no programme adopted. A partial and imperfect plan was offered at the meeting of the commission last week, which was immediately recommit? ted for revision. This action probably gave rise to the report" The towns of Osceola and Houtzdale, in Pennsylvania, which have just been destroyed by fire, were built of wood, with millions of feet of cut lumber piled all around and in them. Of course, no? thing could be saved when such powder magazines caught fire, and the destitu? tion reported by talegmph is unboubted ly a true statement It was fortunate, however, for tho sufferers that the fire occurred at the commencement of sum? mer and not at the opening of the winter season. Two Mrm Bcbved to Cixpew?.?A fire occurred on the 29th ult, in a frame house, No. 877 Seventh avenue, New York, occupied as a stable by Bichard White, John Dagget, and Henry Still, who were asleep in an undertaker's wagon, in the stable, when the fire start? ed, and were burned to cinders. Every? thing in the building was comsumed, The fire extended to an adjoining build? ing. Lofts about $6,000. Mr. Wm. M. Blackmon, of Lancaster, lost by fire .his wood and blacksmith shops on last Wednesday morning. Loss several hundred dollars. 6 CICARB For 25 Cent?, at PBftRY at 8LiAWSON*8 Election for City Physician. Coismata, 8. C. May 27, 1875.
