SATURDAY, -NOVEMBER 16, 1872. JASES E. CHAIBEES, Editor. EDITOBI1L PAK16B1FHI . Ik consequence of an unexpected de mand upon our columns for advertising purposes, jnst before going topreos, we are obliged to omit much matter in tended for this issue, and yet, while making the apology we cannot but be pleased at the occasion that has giv en rise to the necessity. As an adver tising medium, the merits of the Journal are rapidly becoming appreciated and practical evidence of this, in the shape of patronage cannot but encourage us in our efforts to furnish the best home paper published in this section of the State. That the managers of great railroad routes should now and then be brought to realize the fact that freight charges are inadequate and must be raised, would not per $e be particularly re markable. But that these discoveries should invariably be made Just as there is a positive necessity for getting the Hutumn crops to market and just as nav igation closes, is a fact which character izes the movement as extortion, of a na ture so indefensible as to rank but one degree above direct robbery. And in consideration of the disastrous effects of the horse disease upon canal towage at this present season, the late advances in freight furnish a powerful -argument against the monopolies which so coolly assume that might makes right and whose criminal greed induces them to make avail even of public disaster to en rich their own pockets. Probably the Interests of shipper and consumer will at some time force a recogition for them selves and possibly such result will be hastened by transactions of this nature. In a late number of the American Edu cational Monthly is published a transla tion of a report made by Dr. Virchow in 1869, to the Prussian Minister of Pub lic Education, which cannot but be in teresting reading, not alone for parents but for school authorities and all who have anything to do with the building and management of schools, as well. Under the direction of Dr. Virchow, Dr. Hermann Cohn, of Breslau, and as sistants appointed by him, made exami nations of the pupils of five village schools in Lagenbielau, twenty element ary schools, two higher girls' schools, two intermediate, two polytechnic schools, and two gymnasia, and found that of 10,060 scholars and 410 students at the University of Breslau, 19 per cent, of the former and 68 per . cent, of the latter bad not normal sight. In the village schools 1 per cent, of the abnor malities was acquired that is, not nat ural or caused by real disease; in the city elementary schools this was the case with 0 per cent, of the pupils; in higher schools with 7 per cent. ; in the inter mediate with 10 per cent. , in the poly technic (realschule) with 19 per cent. in tlio gymnasia with 36 per cent. ; and in the university with 60 per cent. The difference between the eyes of appren tices and journeymen laborers and stu dents is very markedly to the disadvan tage of the latter. The defects were held to be plainly traceable to bad me chanical arrangements of and in the schools. . Condensed within the brief limits of a telegraphic dispatch there comes to us in simple outline the story of an heroic act of self-forgetful uess and chivalrous gen erosity which, despite its humbleness and the fact that Fate ordained it hap less and unavailing, is nevertheless move deserving of monument and com memorative song than many of the builded and blazoned deeds to which the world lias given its frescoes and its pil lars. Some few days since the circus of John Robinson was performing at Golds- borOjXorthCarolina and during the even ing entertainment there was placed, pro jecting from one of the tent poles of the canvass,a peculiar gas-jet light.alternat- ing every moment from a steady, ordi nary flame to a darting hissing tongue of fire. Immediately in front of this ' and only a few yards away there hap ' pened to be an old, disused, nearly dry and uncovered well. An old negro woman, without the means to more f ul- . ly gratify . ber curiosity, was pottering about outside to hear all she could, and haply through some small hole "coign of vantage" get a forbidden glimpse of the Paradise beyond, when by evil chance she came opposite this shifting light and the well, just as the former revolved into the performance of one of it fantastic.and to her most fearful tricks. Fleeing from it, and blinded by the glare, she fell headlong into the well, shrieking as she went down. watchman of the circus company, going his rounds with a large oil lantern, and nt far behind the old woman when she fled' and fell, ran with his light to the verge of the well, holding it over the dark mouth to see, if ha might, the bot tom, and the poor victim there of her own curiosity and ignorance. But the crowd attracted by the shrieks imme diately after, so rushed and crowded upon him as to endanger his own balance and in resisting it, to secure his own safety, he bad to, or at least for some cause did, let go his lantern, and it fell into the well, breaking as it struck the bottom. : Instantly the entire void what with its own foul gases and the oil from the lantern was one sheet roaring flame rising far above the mouth ot the well. And now followed, on the part of one of the humblest employees of the exhibition, a deed of true hero ism that noblest heroism indeed which consists in the performanoe of a duty without hope of reward or anticipation of applause. - The flames bad subsided but little, ir any, when this man pro posed and unhesitatingly put in instant execution the lowering of himself by rope to the bottom of the well, to rescue ir possible the still humbler victim there from unspeakable torture, if not already past all pain. And he succeeded in so far as to bring up the charred but still breathing and groaning remains of the poor creature. The telegram does not tell us this heros name and only adds that the negro woman expired ' within a few minutes after her rescue and that the unregarded hero who sought to save her, is lying at the point of death himself, burnt almost to a crisp in his fearful venture of humanity. BOOKS AND PiPEBS. Notwithstanding the utmost care of publishers, it is Impossible to always guard against the impositions of the skillful plagiarist, and articles now and then appear, even in our best magazines as origiual, when in truth they are but stolen from some rare or forgotten work. An instance of this kind occurred in Ap pleton's Journal of date November 16th, In that issue some writer, contributes, over the signature of ALEXANDER YOUNG, on article entitled "The Pope and the Conjurer," which is taken vr -batim et literatim from the " Memoirs of Robert Houdin," a work translated form the French, edited by Dr. R. Shel- ton Mackenzie, and published in 1S59 by Geo. G. Evans, of Philadelphia. Changed in the phraseology only in one or two places, and with the same names, incidents, and wording, the article can be found in toto commencing on page 105. As an illustration of successiui literary theiving, Mr. Alexander Young mav certainly consider tne Duplication of this sketch as a chef d'ouvre. CrofutVt Western World for Novem " ber is at hand, and contains, if anything, more than its average amount of inter esting correspondence, valuable statis tical information, and reliable official reporst concerning the Great West. Al though in one sense the World is a class journal, yet the ability with which it is conducted prevents any dullness irom tnat cause, ana renders it in every re spec f a readable publication.

J Your paper the Journal, reaches me every weeic, and t.nougn tne a rencn Postoffice, owing to the necessity of pay ing the five milliards to the Prussians, charge eight cents extra postage, yet I am the gainer, for it is worth more than double that sum. Enclosed are the lines you refer to, but I doubt whether you will find them worthy to print. It is perhaps fortun ate that the spirit has not moved me of ten into similar strains, or rather I should say into poetic errors. Early in life, when separated afar from our own '"Grand River" when I remembered the days I had wandered there, bathed and fished and had my heart made glad, tnen my leeungs got the better of me. Eater on it was a lady fair who made me try to string the harp but alas ! some years since I saw her, and she like the waters of our River, seemed to have lost much of her beauty andgrandenr. But this time it was not the peaceful water, or woman's beauty, that moved me, but human blood and human rage in all its horrors. ' You will remember it was the 22d of March that the "National Guards" fired upon the unarmed people; only four days after they had driven away the government of M. Th iers and established what they called the "Commune of Lib erie, Egalite, Fraternite." Alas, what prostitution of words. Where was the boasted liberty and fraternity ? These armed National Guards had taken pos session or tne city, taken possession ot the streets and squares and stopped peaceful citizens from going to and fro, where It was tneir wont to go, where they had a right to go. and, because a number or tnein moved uy tne love or liberty, and in the most peaceful man ner .without weapons or any Kind formed in procession, and wished to pass by these raise nearted villains, wno with Liberte and .Fraternite on their banners and on their lips, turned and murdered their own peace-loving brothers. Since that day, thank Providence, many of them rot in tne ditcnes ot tneir own bar ricades; lie in the graves of their own making. Why f'o 1 repeat this ; all these times or noiror you Know tun well. When I think of all this and fear that one day our own beloved land may pass throucrh the same trial. I onlv nrav that the still small voice of truth,- wis dom and justice, may grow among our people, and that we may learn e're it is too, late tne saa, sau lesson mat tne ma jority of mankind are bad, and that the majority ought not to rule; only the ma jority of the good, or rather I should say the majority ot tne better ; as lie who is and was wiser than 1, said there were none good. He also says that the major ity take the broad road which leads neith er to good Government or to Heaven. Think not that long years away have made me forget my Republican home. or that I am not a Republican in soul and body, but I have learned that the tyr anny or one is Detter iar tnan tne wicked, fickle rule of many. In religion, that a weak or even a false faith is better than no faith at all. But why should the brave, the honest and the true, be ruled either by the tyrant or the mob ? No, in tne name ot uoa away witn Dotn and let the honest, the responsible class rule themselves and tneir weaker brethren. But vou may say who Is to judge. Let the love of God so far as we know it judge. Let the best laws that man has made or can make, judge, but let not the thief and the drunkard bear rule over us or have one vote ; yea and he who owns not a foot of land or a tree or cot, vote equal with him who with toll and care has loved his native land so much that he has bought and keeps with care a little corner of it. Just think what would be the fate of Paris this night if universal suttrage was proclaimed. That which seems so beautiful in the ory would leave this beautiful city in blood and ashes before morning. A standing army is indeed a heavy curse, but it is one curse to keep down a greater. Never did my heart entirely despair or tne last nope or humanity die within me, until I saw the majority rule in this great city. The majority which uo to this time has . uled so well in America, win x rear oruig us ruin ana sorrow also. We must remember that we are voung and in youth one can do much with safety that in middle life or old age brings death. When I was a boy I could eat two big pockets full of new cnestnuts wnue now one quarter of a small pocket full would kill me as dead Julius Caesar. But now I will ston Caesar is a good name to stop with or i may serve you with this ions hard in digestible matter, with the same fate tnat tne cnestnuts would serve me. So good night L, 8, B, It is so sad, with a weary heart. To watch on the dreary shore For him, the fondly loved one, She will see no more. Sad, sad to mase amid the g-raTes Of the departed gone from life Mouldering beneath our footsteps, Mother, child, or wife. But sadder far, a thousand fold. The rage, and more fatal trance. That has to day its mortal hold Of poor, dying France. The nation once so brave, so high. Could laugh at the Northmen's guns) And fall ye, now, by the stroke ot Your own degenerate sons, Liberte. Equallte, Fraternite," Fairvivas for rebel bands, Better wash the fraternal blood stains Off your guilty hands. Awake I if there yet be an arm Not shrouded in the blood-red pall. Tear it from the face of the land, And save degenerate Gaul, Or else will the moss and the rust. Alone gild your temples of fame. And the owl hoot over the dust, The graves of your shame, Paris, March wa, 1871. The day the Communists fired on the people in the Rue delaralx. I tan Salt Lake City, Oct. 15, 1671. Mb. Editor: Any person who visited this city two or three years ago, and who has not been here sinee,.would scarcely recognize to-day the far-famed City of the Saints. True, there are the same wide, rough, unpaven streets, with here and there a bordering of locusts or Cottonwood, the same irrigating canals, the same Tabernacle, Lyon lie use, and Beehive, - and the same snow-capped peaks of the Wahsatr"' hills, surround ing the valley with i almost impene- traulu lOcky wall, which, according to Mormon geography, was expressly cre ated as a barrier between the inheritance of the chosen saints and invading sin ners. But in spite of their special mis sion, these same hills re-echo daily with the sound of miner' , toohtr uul their dark chasms and ravines are illumi nated by the gleaming fires of many furnaces, which are - converting their natural treasures Into a convenient lorm for 'transportation ; or, to descend from the sentimental to the practical, are dally reducing tons of ore to , immense bars or bullion, in ract tne advent or the "Gentiles" has worked a complete metamorphosis, and almost as quickly as the transfoi mation scene in a Christmas pantomime. The streets of the City no longer look like the pathways.of a de serted country village, which once made the name of "city" seem almost ludi crous, but have a thriving and business like appearance. Instead of the scant drapery and Shaker sunbonnet, the homespun suit or tne "good saint," may now be seen the richly dressed lady and gentleman, arrayed in the latest Paris fashions. The stores no longer exhibit a "denim" or calico as the beau ideal of a saintess' dress, but in Walker's or the G'o-OD." a lady may find as handsome a silk or Irish poplin as can be seen at Lord and Taylor's or A. T. Stewart's. And the improvements in the gocds is not th3 only one noticeable, but tne buildings also keep progress with the times. Many of the stores have large additions with new and imposing fronts, while a large number ot buildings for commercial purposes are in progress of erection. Hussey's new bank will per haps be the finest building of its kind west or the Missouri, designed to De four stories high with iron fronts. The sinners are no longer compelled to go to the Tabernacle to worship witn tne saints, but have now several churches of their own. The Episcopalians have a handsome edifice on Theatre street, which cost over $o0,000, and they are now building a fine school house; trie Methodists are Drosrressinsr with their church, and the Catholics have a neat, tasteful little Duiiding and a good con gregation. Many of the little, adobe houses or tne nrst settlers nave oeen demolished or entirely transformed by neatly ' plastered additions, while num bers of beautiful cottages, interspersed with more imposing buildings are going uu daily as if by magic, residences for these selfsame wicked Gentile invaders. And it is said that Gentile enterprise anrLcapital has exercised such an influ ence over the prophet Brigbam that he contemplates erecting a beautiful "fam ily residence at the cost or sou.wu, just opposite the Lion House and Beehive. Hnghara Jr. is also Duiiding a nanusome new house, and many other saints are following the example of the sinners In enlarging and beautifying their dwel lings. But the principal object ot notice and Interest in Salt Lake City is the new hotel, the Walker House. It is four stories high, front of pressed Philadel phia DricK, imported at great cost, witn all the "modern improvements," which are a God-send to the dwellers in this city of "ancient inconveniences," and is situated on tne main street at a con venient distance from the banks, post- office, theatre, and other places fre quented by the business man or traveler. Tlis ijit modern improvement wnicn has taken place in Ziou, is the street railway running from the Utah Central railroad depot to .ast Temple or main street and down said street passing by the doors of the Walker House to Third South street thence . east one block, making the entire route now finished about one mile long. John W., Young, Esq., one of Brigham's sons, is the principal mover in this enterprise, a-id he is now id New York purchasing iron to continue the railway to the celebrated Warm Sulphur Springs baths, and also in the direction of Camp Douglas Mil itary Post. Gas . and water works are also being constructed and will be completed late in the fall. ' Next spring will therefore find Salt Lake City as far advanced in modern civilization as any of our eastern cities, and thus Ziou is at last emerging out of heathenism. is. A.M.. NEWS OF THE WEEK BOSTON FIRE. MASSACHUSETTS. Boston has sustained the greatest ca lamity recorded in ber History, eighty odd acres of territory, nine-tenths of which was occupied by the nuest pal aces of trade in the city, have been swept by Are. The section of the city which contained all the euinces which were regarded with pride by every busi ness man, and which combined the mod ern commercial appliances with archi tectural beauty, are a mass or ruins. Summer street and Franklin streets, the locality of the largest dry goods Arms in tne city, .f earl street ana nign street, the headquarters of the leather, boot and shoe trade , Washington street, from Summer to Milk street, and also Milk street, Congress street, where the large wool nouses are located, these and other enumerated below may be seen only in sad outline of half burnt facades and skeleton side walls. The wealthiest portion of the city of Boston exists no longer, and since Saturday night last at half-past seven it is estimated by the city assessors that property, real and personal, to the amount ot between one and two hundred million dollars has been destroyed. Fortunately the heavy blow has not caused so large a: amount of personal suffering as the great Are ac cinicago, as mere were comparatively few habitations destroyed in Boston. In the vicinity of Fort Hill and to the south there were some tenements, and many families were driven out to And shelter as they could among the mass of goods which accumulated upon the un improved portion of Fort Hill. The Are broke out . in a build ing on Summer street ' occupied bv Tibbitts, Baldwin & Davis, at half past seven ir. M. ihis block, valued at $90,000 was soon destroyed and the fire rapidly extended in all directions, be coming in a short time entirely beyond the control of the firemen. The beauti ful and valuable blocks on all the ad joining streets were soon destroyed and in an lncreaioiy snort time the entire city was lighted by .the blaze of burning buildings. By ten . o'clock the Are had reached and consumed Federal street on the S.ist side and Sum' ir street, Wln throp Square, Otis sti - . and Devon shire otieet to Fraukliu . street on the North aide. . From this time there seemed no possible stay to the destruction until the entire city should be consumed. To add to the calamity a strong wind now sprung up, and soon increasing to a gale, seemed to carry the flames forward with frightful rapidity. At eleven o'clock the Are had extended to the rear of the stores on the north side of High street, and the wind was still rapidly increasing. By this time the whole city was in a fearful state of excitement. The news of the conflagration had spread rapidly, and thousands were crowding the streets. The sky was brilliantly illuminated by the glare of the burning buildings and immense flame carried by the wind wen shooting out in every direction, in many instances leaping entirely across whole streets. Sparks and embers Ailed the air, and the terrible, thick smoke combined with the falling timbers and masonry rendered all effort to subdue the fire too hazardous to be attempted. In addition, to add to the horrors, the lack of horses made the noble efforts of the fire depart ment of little avail. By twelve o'clock, the flames had reached Franklin street, and every building between Cbaiincey and Franklin was In flames. At this time, taking new start.the flames spread in a southerly direction to Kingston street, and soon reduced - the dwel ling houses 'there to a mass of Are, driving thousands of poor people forth homeless into the streets. Within half au hour the Are had extended down Summer tlreet to the wharves and com municated to the shipping, then reach ing Congress street the flames seemed to gather ntV force and soon the entire area enclosed by Washington, Bedford and Milk streets and to the water front, was a mass of destroying fire. Again starting out the fire communicated to the blocks below Franklin and Milk streets, and in this direction started afresh on its destructive course. During the whole night the fire was marching steadily toward the water easterly, carried by the northwesterly wind. The water" was reached by the flames about midnight, taking all the stores on the southerly side of Summer street, the new block of buildings at junction of Bedford and Summer streets, ending in the destruction of the Boston, Hartford and Erie Railroad depot. At the same time the tire spread to the right and left, taking as its outer course to the north toward State street. From the corner of Milk and Washington streets the uutreu ot lln tit was along the southerly side of Milk street, until it passed the new Post Office building, when it crossed Water street, and flu ally at a late hour Sunday afternoon at tacked the Post Office on State street. This was the general outline of the course which the fire took. " - . WILLIAM C CHAMBERS. I JAMBS K. CHAMBERS, f J. b. Mclaughlin. ) Before J. Cavendish, J. P. Painesville, Township, .Lake Co., Ulno.

During the past fifteen years I have mostly spent my time tnning and repairing pianos, and have tuned many old and new Hazelton Pianos. The tones are fine and clear, yet brilliant, the action good; they-stayin tune admirably, and, taking all things into account, I think there are no better pianos made than the Hazelton Bros.'
