PRESS AND TRIBUNE.
STTUBDAY MORHIKO, JASUABY 22, 1869.
Proposed lacrease ta U# Kates of
foitsrei
-Quite the most interesting MM connected
with the preseat sitting of fftgrcss, the one
most likely to arrest the attention of all class
,Cß and conditions of the community—the
Bank President who sends bis correspondence
to the Post Office every evening in a Fpecial
mail alike with the wet-nuree who writes
and receives half a dczen letters per annum
is the reported agreement of the Senate Post i
Office Committee to bring in a bill increasing
the rates of postage to five cents for all dis tan- i
ces uoder three thousand miles. This feature,
it is Bald, was opposed by Messrs. Bigler,
Dixon and Hale. The balance of the Com
mittee, Messrs. Tu'ee of Florida, (where the
transportation of letters costs the Department
about twenty cents each,)Gwin of California,
(whose overland mail costs five dollars for
every letter transported,) Ward of Texas,
(where the expensed mail transportation ex
ceeds that ol Florida,) and Pearce of Mary
land—are of oourse in favor of the increase.
The Committee we learn, vere unanimously
in favor of restricting the franking privilege
—an amendment which we would still further
amend by abolishing that abuse altogether or
.transferring its expense to the Departments
of the Government which create it, instead
of saddling it upon the private correspond
ence of the country and then waxing wise
and economical because the Post Office reven
ues show annual deficit of two or three mil
lion dollars!
No measure which could receive the sanc
tion of Congress would elicit so vehement a
protest, or be followed by so extensive a
slaughter of politicians, as this increase in
the rates of postage ; and bolh protest and
punishment would be entirely just. The
older, more enlightened and more populous
sections of the country are already heavily
overtaxed for the benefit of the more primi
tive and sparsely populated States and Territo
ries, while all are burdened to give cheap post
age to the Pac'fii cuast, and exemption from
postage to.lbe vast stream of mail bags to and
from the District of Colombia, where hardly
any but day laborers and washerwomen ever
have occasion for a letter stamp. The ave
rage expense for mail carrying in New Eng
land and New York is one cent and eight
mills per letter, and the six New England
States contribute a surplus of revenue to the
Department of over half a million dollars per
annum. In the Middle and Western States,
excluding California, the expense is under
three cents per letter—Mr. Pliny Miles,
the writer on Postal Heform, computes
it at three cents and three mills, including
California, belore the Overland Route was
established. In the Southern and Southwest
ern States, the average is six cents and teven
mills, and the deficit of revenue one and oce
half millions per annum. Yet we bear of no
complaint on the score of these inequalities*
A uniform rate of postage for all "distances
this side of the Pacific, is essential to a weTj
regulated system of postal service, and is a
luxury which the people would not dis
pense with, notwithstanding Massachusetts,
checkered with railroads and teeming
with population, contributes largely to
supply the same blessing to Texa<?, which ha?
no railroads and a very thin population-
The enormous sums paid every year for ocean
mail service, though tiic benefits accrue to
only a small per centage of the letter writers
of the country would not be grumbled at, nor
would the dissatisfaction created by the ex
pensive overland contract to the Pacific ever
assume such proportions as to trouble the
Adminiptration which fathered it. All these
are looked upon as national necessities. They
furnish facilities which aoy person may re
quiie to use, aud they are not to be abolished
without involving other consequences per
haps more serious than the mere stoppage ol
letter mails.
Bat when the question comes up of laying a
DOW toll of two ocuio oqoli on tLo mllllonn of
letters transported for short distances, lor the
benefit of the dozens which go across the
ocean or the continent—to perfect the balance
ebeet of the General Postoflise, upon which the
Departments of State, Treasury, War, Navy, j
aud Interior, both houses of Congress, and I
the Ciiy ol Washington are established as
permanent dead beads—there will be resist
aoce to the demand. The injustice is appa
rent in every point of view. The excuses
for the franking privilege fall to ihe ground
utterly, when the revenues of the Depart
ment arc so reduced as to call for an increase
in postage rates. The expensive Oceau and
Ortrlatid service is as properly chargeable
to any other bureau of the public business as
to tiie Post Office. It is well known that the
reason alleged for paying nearly a million of
dollars per annum for mail transportation to
the Collins.sieamers was, not that the service
was worth that sum of money, but that the
steamers conld not be built and navigated for
alessfum. It is also known that the chief
object had in view in establishing the Over
land California mail was not to carry mail
bags which were already provided with a
costly rou'e via Panama, but to open
tip and Kiftle the country between the
oceans, diifuse knowledge of its re
sources and prepare the way for a Pacific
Railroad. It, was alleged, and justly
too, that the Ca.ifornia ocean mail service
was essential to the perpetuity of fraternal
feelings between the citizens of the Pacific
coast and th.; rest of the Union. Why should
the cost of these manifold advantages, accru
ing to so many different interests be charged
to the Post Office and levied upon the letter
writers or the country? The taxis grossly
misplaced even under the present system of
postage rates, and calls loudly for reform.
But without going farther into the subject,
we may say that there is no danger of the
Senate report being adopted by the House of
Representatives, even it it should pass the
body in *h:ch it originates. The people take
too lively an interest in the three-cent ques
tion to tolerate the change longer than would
be required to put in retirement every mem
ber who voted for it. There are not three
members from Ihe Northern States in both
Houses who could be re-elected with the issue
of increased postage against them.
The Revolution in Hayti.
The Empire onijyii occupies the west ecd
Of the Wet laiVm L,l*ud of tho same name
formerly known as San Domingo. Its area,*
including a few small adjacent Islands, is
10,081 Fquarc miles, and its present popula
tion ia estimated at about 550,000. The peo
ple are almo.-t entirely of the Negro race,
speak the French language, and profess tSe
Roman Catholic* religion. The Island was
fonncrJy.irvdepjEdcncy of France, but the
riaves revolted against the despotism and
cruelty of their ma.-tere, and obtained
both their freedom and their political
independence. A Itepublio was established,
but alter variou- mulations, the Span'
ish portion ot the Island revolted in 1844,
overpowered their _llaytieu oppressors, and
Lirrned them wives into a RapnMic under the
name ofSantoDoiningo. After various persons
bad occupied lor a short period the Pres.den
tial chair of the Haytien Republic, Gen. So
louque was chosen to that office. He was a
man of more than ordinary energy, ambitious
and possessed or undoubted courage. In 1849
be undertook the subjugation oi the revolted
Dominicans, but failed in the attempt In the
latter part of the sam- year he overturned
the Republic, proclaimed the Empire, and
was crowned Emperor with great pomp un
der the title of f uu,liii L That position he !
still retains, unless the revolution which was
set on foot ou the 22d of December last has
proved successful.
The leader of the i evolution Is General 1
Fabre GefTrard, formerly "Governor of Jac
mel, one ot the departments of the Empire.
Some lime ago, it seems, Solouqne grew dia- 1
tru-tlul of the loyality or Geffrard, and tn
order to have him under his immediate ob- >
scrvation, attached liim to bis Military StafE
On the day named above, tbis officer, accom
parned by three others, stole away from Port
au Prince to -an opea-iioat, determined to
theohaaoM or « Wolatioa. How tor !
few JiAd Bid? known bli jfttogto confederates
in different parts of the Empire, or whether
be bad aDy euch confederates at is not
yet apparent. All the intelligence \TO have
on the subject is, tbat bo first landed at St.
Maro, forty-four miles from Fort au Prino#,
where no one was disposed to join bU stand
ard. Taking boat again, he proceeded to
Gonaivcs, eomc twenty miles farther up the
coast, whore better fortune awaited bim.
Here he found a solitary sentinel keeping;
watch over the prison, of whom he demanded
the release of the prisoners. This demand
the sentinel at once complied with, oa per
ceiving that, as against himself, the " revolu
tionary army " was four to one, and forty re
leased prisoners joined Geffrard's stand
ard. Willi this acc.ssion to bis force, be
marched to the Governor's bouse, fright
ened that dignitary . into resigning,
and then with his three companions his
forty jail-birds, and Each of the populace as
choose to join them, they proclaimed So*
louque a traitor and Hayti a Reoublic. Sub
eequently the Constitution of 1846 was de
clared to be in force, and GefTrard President —
a position which we are told he only coosent
qi to accept provisionally—and would resign
iuto the hands of the people the moment the
revolution was accomplished.
From Goaaives, Geffrard marched upon
Saint Mire, which place It was supposed he
would take with as little difficulty as attend
ed his conquest of the former. His next
march would be upon the capital. A letter
from Gonaiyes by the vessel which brings
this Intelligence, expresses the belief that all
the Northern portion of Hayti would at once
ruih to his standard. Solonque ; £ strength is
in the southern half of his dominions and in
his army, if indeed the latter should prove
•true. Upon that point we suspect the fate of
the revolution will turn. The populace do
not appear to be martially inclined, while the
army numbers 40,000 men, the navy 15 ships
and 1,000 men. If these remain loyal,Faustin
will 6oon pat down his reroltiog General.
Should tbey go over to Geffrard, his sable
majesty must succumb. The next arrival will
probably inform us as to the result.
Another Railway Meeting at Minne
apolis Alinuebota.
We referred a day or two since to two pub
lie meetings at Minneapolis, Minnesota, at
which fraud was charged upon the managers
of some of the Minnesota railways. A cor
respondent of the St. Paul Minncsotian of
Jan. 18th, furnishes that paper with a long
account of another meeting held' in Minne
apolis oa the previous Saturday evening.
There were many sharp shots on bolh sides;
but the railway men seem to have had fho
wor6t of the encounter. A serici of resolu
tions were passed by the meeting only the
fifth and six'.h of which are published. They
are as lollows:
5. Jtctolved That the rumored proposition of
calling a special session of the Legislature for
the purpose of levying a tax on the people of
Minnesota to pay the interest on the bonds is-
Bued to the various railroad companies, after
> the repeated assurances and pledges from such
companies that the people should never be tax
ed lor such purpose, and atter the publishing of
a card by the members of the Legislature who
favored and advocated the policy of the State
Loan in the first instance, pledging themselves
1 ibat they would not vote lor, but would resist
such a tax—meets oar disapprobation ; that oar
citizens are already so oppressed with taxes as
to render it impossible for them to pay, at pre
sent, a tax for such purposes.
( Jietolved, That the people of Minnesota have
not realized the benefits expected under the gen
eral Banking Act of this State; that this is at
tributable to the unwise preference given to the
railroad bonds as a backing basis, over the good
State bonds of other States ; and that we hope
the law in this respect will be changed at the
next session of the Legislature,
Personal and Political.

The Cuban Conspiracy—Final

r Democracy com'ng up to the revival
. of the slave Trmde.
( rFrom oar own Correspondent].
Washisctos, Jan. 18. lESS.
The Democratic conspiracy to rob Spain of
Cuba, and to get us-into a war with her Euro
- peen allies, tfest is. with England and France,
is progressing. The first general caucus was
held last Saturday evening. Douglas greedily
seized the chance of getting into free and pro
fessed oommnnion with the party. He was at
the caucus, and made speeches in the real Buc
canneering rein for which he is famous. lam
told that his remarks had the ring of the true
freebooter metaL He scorned to boy Cuba, he
would wait for an outrage like that of the Black
> Warrior, (where a ship was detained a few days
> for violating the revenue laws), and then
i promptly seize the island, and negotiate after
wards. That advice has a noble, dare-devil
sound that must be very taking to the frequent
ers of Tammany Hall, and the Pewter Mug.
The seizure of Cuba., could, of course, bo ac
complished in a weelf or two, and Democracy
may well believe that the negotiations which
1 would follow would be hardly more tedious.
! They-ffould be conducted by a hundred war
steamers and ships ot the line, and after the
1 trenchant conquerors of Cuba had been depos
ited m their holds, as prisoners, it is not at all
unlikely that the war might be carried into Af
rica, by way of " indemnity for the past and se>
cunty for the future." In that eveitt, Charles
( ton, Savannah, Pensacola, and Mobile, might be
taught lessons which they are likely to learn in
no other way. The deportation of half a mil"
! lion of slaV^f' o° r semi-Africanized sec
' tion, would be ot immense service in a double
1 sense. It would create vacancies for a corre
! sponding number ot white working men, and
I" would furnish Coba with 500,000 black soldiers
i ready to defend themselves and their new homes
i against all filibusters, and pirateß in general.
3 It is true that a little bill of two or three
, hnndred millions would close the transaction;
but with the example of Mississippi and the
genius of Cobb, the vision of debts unpaid need
not disturb our Democracy.
When Broderick was told that Douglas had
gone into the conclave, he said he might as well
have entered a den of burglars. Broderick is a
true outspoken man, seeking to cheat and de
ceive ncflbdy, and is mnch more likely to reap
the highest rewards which a public man can re
ceive, than any of his persecutors.
' A large amount of paper, signed or indorsed
by Secretary Floyd, has been put in circulation
• by Hon. Allison White, of Pennsylvania, a con
tractor, or the brother of a contractor, for army
■ supplies, and a Lecomptoa Democrat. Constitu
, ents of Mr. Covode, holding SIS,OOO of the pa
per which is over-due, have come here to ascer
) tain why it is not paid. Mr. Covode attempted
to introduce a resolution into the House on the
subject, but failed. Of course, there was noth
ing wrong in the transaction, and it had no con
' ' nection with Lecompton nor with votes in Con
gress. Of ccnirte not But this may be re
r marked, that if Secretary Floyd bad been a Re
\ publican, he would have been hounded from the
Cabinet long since, with the whole Locofoco
1 pack growling and snarling at his heels.
\ The Pacific Railroad still lives, to the aston
" ishment of its friends. Its life must be sup
-1 ported by secret medicaments, tor the brains
1 were out long ago.
The Washington Union glorifies the 32d par
* allel mail route at SSSO,(jOO a year, and contrasts
| it with the disasters that have occurred on the
' Salt Lake and Albuquerque lines. The facts
, are these:—The Butterfieid Company had one
: year from the forming of the Company till the
5 beginning of the service, to make their prepar
ations. Tbey have made contract time only
once or twice, and we hear no more of their an
' ticipatiog the mail tin Panama and Tehnantepec,
though tbey run twice a week, while the ocean
' line runs twice a month. For every letter con
: veyed by the El Paso line, the Government pavs
| five dollars aud receives three cents; and this
| while the' deficiency of the general revenue to
i meet expenditures is $80,000,000 a year.
Neither of the other routes has yet been
tried at all. The contractors on the
Salt Lake route had but seventeen days in
which to make their preparations for a weekly
mail over an unsettled country of one thousand
miles in extent. They have tailed exactly once
to make the lime required by their contract, end
that in cpnsequence of a terrible storm which
tbey had not taken the requisite precautions to
meet. The government organ publishes the
i itinerary ot the mail party on this route,
which encountered the storm, and says that the
service has been suspended six weeks. There
is not a word of truth in this assertion. Mr.
Gerrish, a merchant of Salt Lake, has been
here a week, and be Btarted from the valley
with the mail which left on the 11th December.
He reached Independence within the contract
time—twenty-two days.
As to t&e Albuquerque route, service m
have been suspended upon that line for the
very excellent reason that a war of extermina
tion has been waged by our army otficers against
the civilized Indians, upon the trumpery alle
gation that Major Brocks had lost his slave.
Alter the cruel massacres and barbarous burn
ings ol crops and houses inflicted by our troops,
it is not wonderful that the lodians have stopped
the mail parties. This Navt>joe war is a dark
and bloody page in the history of our relations
with the Indians, and the wanton outrages per
petrated upon that tribe ought to receive the
severe censure of Concrete.
The Committee on Naval AfTairs is preparing
to report on the resolution ot inquiry relative to
the slave trade- The majority, Southern slave
holders and Northern Democrats, will recom
mend the withdrawal of the African sqaadron,
and its employment on and near the coasts of
Cuba. The intention of this movement is to re
move any practical check, through our agency,
to. the export of slave cargoes from Africa, and
to form a blockadlog squadron around Cuba, in
order to cover the descent of Filibustering par
ties. •
Messrs. Sherman and Morse will present a
minority report, advising the strengthening of
the African squadron, by the addition of r everal
fast and efficient mail steamers. The substance
of the intended action, of the majority is to
withdraw .the han of the Government from the
traffic, end to prepare the way for a positive
policy in its favor, should the South decide to
reopen it
The House Committee on the S3O 000,000 Cu
ban appropriation, are favorable. They will re
port a bill at the first good opportunity, and the
subject will be the burtnen of Buncombe SDeeches
during the rest of the session. Ju.sics.

Our city continues to improve slowly. The
St. Croix and Lake Superior Railroad is pro
gressing; a hundred men have been at work
ell winter upon it, and Mr. Noyes, the contrac
tor, intends to complete the coming season
twenty miles of the road in running order. It
appears to us here that the people of Chicago
and St. Panl .would further their interest by
running a road direct to this place, connecting
with the Superior road, it being the most direct
and shortest route. As the Minnesota roads
are now running tbey virtually cut off St. Paul
There is still another fact which it would be
well for railroad men to look at. The Grand
Trunk Railway of Canada could cross the St.
ilary aat the foot of Lake Superior, running
thence west and strike the St. Croix and Su
perior Road some fifty mile's northeast from this
place, running through St. Paul, and thence
west on the roads now building in Minnesota.
By taking this route, the far West or the Pacific
may be reached much sooner than if the road
were built to the north of Lake Superior, and
would run through a much more thickly settled
country. If the Fond dn Lao Company would
extend their road to SL Paul, they would com
mand the entire through business. lam not

From Tahiti. J
By the arrival at Honolulu, Nov. SSlb, of the
schooner Lewis Perry, we have received advices
from"Tahiti to Nov. 10th.
Mr. Henry Owner,' ex United States Consul at
Tahiti, was a passenger on the Lewis Perry.
A change took place in Angnst last in the
Governorship of Tahiti. The new Governor has
instituted a new order of things. The principal
changes are, the removal of the military (Tahiti
to be mainly a civil and not a military port), and
the abrogation-of the obnoxious laws in respect
to shipping.
Rsiatee and Tabaa, two of the Society Islands,
have applied to the united States to be annex
ed. Tneae are two small islands of the Society
group, separated from each other by a strait
eight or ten miles wide, and are situated about
one hundred and forty miles northwest of Tahiti,
and seventy miles west of Huahine. Riiatea is
the larger of the two; and about forty miles in
circumlerence. Both islands are surrounded in
common by a coral which has numerous
through it, of sufficient depth to allow
the entrance of the largest war vessels, which 1
can moreover sail around both islands inside of
the reef, constituting one of the most remarks
ble as well as safe harbors in the Pacific.
It is generally supposed that these islands are !
under the protection of t.e French, but we are
informed by Mr. Owner that such is not the
case. So far from that, the French are bonnd
by express treaty not to interlere with the ad
ministration of those islsnds, and certain it is
that no French authority has ever been exer. (
cued on them. On the other hand, they are ,
considered at Tahiti to be perfectly free and in
dependent The papulation of Riiatea ia about j
eight thousand, and that of Tabaa about three (
thousand. Both islands have several chiefs, but <
no king.

f Edlton Prera ind Tribune:
One of the ablest political economists of the
State of New York who is most conversant with
| canal system and policy, remarked to me
the other day, "that no place in the world woald
"profit so much by the recent liberal reduction
41 in the tolls on the Erie Oanal as Chicago. It
woald enable the great system of railroads
''centering npon her to. bring much larger
"amounts of prodnce and from greater dis
"tances to her port, and distribute merchandise
"over a wider range of country from it, be
" cause of the cheapened rate of transportation
"b7 water between Chicago and New York."
The extent of this redaction of Erie Canal
tolls is one-third on wheat and fionr, and one
half on merchandise,—a great reduction, for if
the reduced rates were now to be increased
again to what they have hitherto been, it will
be perceived that it would be an increase of bO
per cent, on wheat and floor, and one hundred
per cent, or double, on merchandise.
The Erie Canal this season and hereafter, un
til complete, is to hare six feet of water in it in
stead of four feet. When the enlargement is
fully completed it is to haye se7en feet of wa
ter. This increased depth of water enabling
boats now to carry cargoes of 200 tons; and the
reduced tolls, will, in the opinion ot intelligent
forwarders of tbid State, divert trade enough
from railways and qther channels to the Erie C
anal, not only to compensate for the redcction
and maintain the revenues of the cacal to about
their present standard, but greatly to enhance
the business, commerce and wealth of the State
and of her unrivalled commercial metropolis,
and thus prove a very wise stroke of policy in
every way.
My informant expressed the opinion, that this
action on the part of the State of 2few York,
would be so marked in its efiects on Chicago, as
to enhance its real estate ten per cent, or more,
L and increase its population and business in a
far greater degree. The recent great revulsion
j in business and moneyed affairs haswrought eeri
-1 ous changes, irjared the fortunes, and dampened
i the hopes ot mauy, and the effects of it will
still take some time to obliterate. Prom this
) time forth, however, everything must improve,
until all is well again, and none should be dis
heartened because of the past, or the present
[ so soon to be reckoned among tho things of the
i past.
With a buoyant condition of affairs, all things
r are hoped for and confidently anticipated; when
depressions and misfortunes come, hope shrinks
and the future is too much overshadowed and
involved in the gloom of the present.
I Though none can well be shaken in their faith
, in regard to tho onward course and increasing
destinies of Chicago, many may have been lately
so affected in feeling and purse as not to see that
much, if anything, is transpiring just now to her
advantage and to that of t'ne great West gener
* ally. Let us see if such impressions are not
> very far from the truth.
In the first place the fortunate and unexpect
[ ed redaction in tolls, and the increased depth of
3 water in the Erie Canal are great points gained,
and the beneficial effect upon us, will be extend
ed to all other avenues of communication with
, which we are connected, and that are contend
s ing for our trade and travel. Secondly, the Ca
i nadian movement, indicated by the report of
| Messrs. McAlpine and Kirkwood. survivors of
r Capt. Child, tor the enlargement of their canals
and deepening of their channels, will now neces
| sari ybe hastened on, because of the superior
advantages presented by the Erie Canal route
s with its reduced tolls, until scarcely second to
' it in importance to us.
On the other side of us Minnesota has
i voted five millions to railroads, which must con
' nect with, Indeed aro but extensions of, the
' great system of which Chicago and her port are
I the admitted Western centre and key, and by
i the construction of which her circle of trade
I will be greatly enlarged. South of us the New
| Orleans, Jackson and Great Northern Railroad
) Company have, within the month past, com
* pleted and opened their road from New Orleans
' to Canton, in Mississippi, 206 miles. From Can
ton north to Jackson, in .Tennessee, 225 miles,
i the line is complete and in operation, except SO
r miles of the Mississippi Central Railway, which
[ is graded and ready for the iron, and will be
completed within twelve to eighteen months.
' from Jackson, Teooessee, to Kentucky CHj, on
I the Mississippi, 18 miles below Cairo, the road
I is complete except 40 miles. The iron is being
laid on that now at both ends, and it will be in
operation by September. The ferry over the
Ohio connecting these roads with the Illinois
Central, will for the present be from Kentucky
City to Cairo, because of the heavy embank
-1 ment necessary in building the road across the
bottom lands to a point on the Ohio opposite
Cairo.
The Mobile and Ohio Railroad from Mobile to
Jackecn, Tennessee, where it joins with the line
from New Orleans to the same point, has more
than 200 miles of its road in operation and is
daily progressing to completion.
With these roads from Mobile and from New j
Orleans complete to Cairo, and in full connect
ion with the Illinois Central Railroad, as they
so soon will be, a new trade and travel will
spring up between the Northern Lakes and prai
ries and the cities of the Qulf of Mexico, in tro
pical fraits and productions and in the inter
change of travel, which difference in climate and
seasons make agreeable and necessary, and im
portant to both, and especially so to the Illinois
Central Railroad and Chicago.
The beneficial effects of these great lines of
communication with the extreme South may be
developed less rapidly perhaps than is the case
with similar lines to the Eist, but tbey cannot
fail to become in due time avenues of trade and
travel of the first importance, throughout the
length and breadth of the vallev of the Missis
sippi, and between the extreme southern por
tion of the United States, the bordering towns
on the Gulf of Mexico, Cuba, and other Weft
India Islands, and the cities, lakes and prairies
oftbe great North-West.
Again, notwithstanding the hard times, the
Joliet and Chicago Railroad has been completed
to Chicago the past winter, making the line of
the Chicago, Alton and St. Louis Railroad com
plete from Chicago to St. Louis, and more or
less progress has been made meanwhile on the
Illinois River, and other roads in the State and
in lowa.
By the last arrivals from Europe, we have ad
vices authoritatively announced in the papers
of the purchase of the iron, and raising of the
funds necessary promptly to complete the Cin
cinnati and Chicago Railroad to Chicago.
Whether it is intended to make it an independ
ent line quite to Chicago, or to connect it with
the Pittsburgh, FL Wayne and Chicago Rail
road at Valparaiso, as has heretofore been pro
posed, is not stated.
Within the past week the Pennsylvania Rail
road from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh, a strong
and very ably managed company has entered
into and fully executed a contract with the Pitts
burgh, Ft. Wayne and Chicago Railroad for the
completion of the latter by the former to Chica
go by January next; and thereafter these roads
will be run in close connection as one nnbroken
line from Chicago to Philadelphia, without fer
ries, and shorter, it is claimed, than any other
route, and passengers over this more southern
route'will have little fear from snow-drifts and
obstructions of that sort in winter, and nothing
at any time from failure to make connections;
-Jfor the train will be one and continuous from
Chicago to Philadelphia, and vice ttrsa, withont
break or delay. Mr. J. Edgar Thomson, the ac
complished President of the Pennsylvania
Central Railroad, is 'made Chief Engineer
1 of the Pittsburgh, Ft. Wayne and Chicago Rail
road, and its construction, and the disbursement
of the funds to be provided will be under his di
rection7and great energy, competency and faith
fulness are thereby secured, and its early com
pletion made certain. i
Wtih this new and favorable third eastern 1
route fully completed; Chicago gains great al- <
lies in Pennsylvania, central Ohio, and northern ]
Indiana, and especially in the city of Philadel
phia, and is assured t>f improved facilities, in
creased good treatment and attention over all
three of her splendid lines ot Railway to the
East, and a wider range of country trade and
travel will be attracted to her, and over these <
roads, as a consequence. <
With all these tnlngs done and promised in a 1
yearof depression, and with good health,an early 1
and every assurance of good and abundant 1
crops, Cnicago and the Northwest have little oc- t
cation for despondency as to the future. t
Beyond all this, other important and advanta- 1
geous chtogcs from new quarters are contempla- !
ted, if not already decided npon. A great combi- t
nation of interest has already been lormed, it is E
pretty well understood) betweta the Grand Trunk f
Kailroad of Canada, (to terminate at Port Sarnia
and Port Goderich on Lake Huron and extending
via Hamilton, Toronto, and Montreal to Quebec
and to Portland in Maine,) and the Easlbn lines
or tcrew steamers now running to Quebec and to
Portland, (in which tatter line »he great steamer t
Leviatuan is said to be included) for the great In- (
crease (by improved facilitejot transportation,) c
of emigration to the West, by establishing agentd t
permanently at t e joint txpen.-e ot ruads and t

emigrants and emigrant lamiliea, to take them np
at their homes bag and baggage for so moon, and

Ihe Disaster at ihc Victoria Theatre.
[Fromtbe London Times]
The results of panic fright at the Victoria
, Theatre, on lloaday, were iruly calamitous.
) Within a few minutes, in a shorter time than it
must occupy to relate the catastrophe, sixteen
persons were crushed to death, and a much
■ larger number more or le3S seriously irjured.
It appears that the pt'endance at the theatre cn
j KoxiDg-driy is so large as to induce the manag
ers to gi*e two performances, one in the after*
1 noon and one in the evening. On Monday iast
r great numbers attended the afternoon pertorm
j ance, which commenced at one o'clock. lJetore
it was concluded the audience began to collect
in the approaches for the evening performance
i and the gallery entrance was besieged at an
r early hour by an eager crowd. It was not con
sidered desirable to keeptbetn in the street, and
they were admitted. In a short time the stair
-5 case leading to the gallery was crammed Irom
• the bottom to the top. The managers bad made
prudent provision in anticipation of this. They
bad closed the door at the top of the gallery
1 stairs, to as to prevent either ingr 83 or egress
! till the morning occupants of the galfery should
, have cleared away. In order to tacilitate this,
operation, a side lobby leading doxn to the
boxes were thrown open, the stream of people
descending by which would have poured out at
the principal entrance, without interferiag with
the ascending crowd. On the ordinary stair
case there are four landings, and the crowd as
cended to the third, on which tQe money-takers
box was placed, and where tnere was a barrier.
About half-past four o'clock a cry ot "Fire" was
raised. It would appear from t e most reliable
evidence that it originated in the dress circleof
boxes, either from the accidental ignition of a
box of fusees, or from a boy having ignited one
to light a pipe, and at the same time set fire to
the remainder in the box. The appearance of
fire, as seen by four or tire persons, was but mo
mentary, and the burning losses were instantly
trampled out. The cry, However, spread faster
from the boxes to the pit, and from the pit to
the'gallery. A rush began in the boxes and
pit, but it was immediately checked by tde
servants of the theatre, woo behaved with ad
mirable promptness and coolness. In the gal
lery the alarm spread like electricity. The
people seated there could not see any tire, but
they heard the cry; they thought oulF of the
danger, and they instantly made a'rusb for the
door. In vain the check-taker and another en
deavored to direct their course to the staircase
leadiog to the boxes. The crowd were panic
stricken and could no: be controlled. They
forced past, rushedjdown to the third landing,
broke opeo the door there, and then the leartu!
death struggle commenced. The fugitives from
the gallery wildly precipitated themselves on
the ascending crowd, while the people at the
bottom, uoconscious of what was going on,
continued to press upwards. Tbota in the cen
tre were wedged in between the two contending
masses. Still cries of "Fire" came from above,
and still the pressuae continned, upward and
onward. The weak and nervous fell down and
were trampled under loot. Sjme sprang orer
the balustrades and alighted upon the heads of
those on the lower landing. The scene can no
more be described than the crisis of a battle, or
the horror of a shipwreck. The result was that
when, alter some tea minntes or a quarter of aa
hour, the police were enabled to clear a way to
the first landing, they found there a contused
and motionless heap of bruised and trampled
human bodies, among which no less than six*
teen wers corpses.
Sach are the leading facts of this valy shock
ing atfiir, in which it does not appear that any
one was very greatly to blame.
More Tronble abont the Chaplains to
Coogress*
The Washington correspondent of the Boston
Traveller fays that there is at present s-ome little
feeling amocg the clergy of ih"u» city in regard to
a step taken by the Speaker ot the House, who
has stricken off from the list of those appointed to
cfficiate as chaplains of the House aud Senate, the
names of„six of the most prominent and popchr
Protestant ministers, and supplied their places by
those of the six Catholic priest■» of this city.
The feeling excited thereby ig not that the
priest; ere to officiate instead of these gentlemen
thpy have supplanted, bat that tie Speaker has
taken ihc liberty to abd the names of the - priests
who would not attend this called meeting of the
cKrg/, and that in so doing he 1113 violated the
spirit of the resolution of Invitation passed by the
House, which specified that they shonld officute
I in the order upon which they might agree among
themselves. Among those stricken ou; of tin* list !
are the Rev. Byron Sunderland, D. D.,of the First
Presbyterian Church; the Krv. G. W. Limson,
D. D..of the Tenth street Baptist Church ; the
Bev. F. Swen'zsl, of ttie Methodist Protestant
Church ; aud tne Rev. Dr. Xadal, of the Metho
dist Church. The Kev. Fathers Stone- '
street, OTuole, IfcGrath, sestini, and others, sup
ply thtir places. J

Heaet Disease.—Sudden deaths, which are
becoming very frequent of late, are usually as
cribed to disease of the heart. This is only a
guess, aad probably not a correct one. Dr.
Wynne, in u recent lecture before tbe New

heart disease were extremely rare. Of twenty
six cases of sudden de%ih examined by one
physician, not one was by heart disease, but 15
