THE APPBOACHIKQ ECLIPSE. The World says the total eclipse of the tun which takes place on the 11th of next month, visible in India and the islands South of ABia, ia already at trading the attention of men of acience, and instrumenta are being placed yi po sition to seize upon all phasea of phe nomenon during the two or three minntea of its duration, that it may be after wards subjected to study and specula tion, from which important reaulta in astronomical science are anticipated. Much is expected especially of the Eng lish expedition to Ceylon, which, with the recent experiences in Sicily less than a year ago to guide it, has made elabo rate preparations and been furnished with all needed appliances. Tho vexed question as to the nature of the bright corona which surrounds the disc of tbe moon during the obscuration ia in a fair way to be settled if no " act of God " jotervenea to thwart the efforts of the observera. Connected with this question is that of the existence and nature of the atmosphere of the sun and the sub stance and condition of the luminary itself. Accurate data regarding these will furnish a basis for study and con jecture concerning the fixed stars. Hence the importance attached to the phenomenon. It is to be hoped that the observers will meet with all success. , KOSSUTH. It is said that Louis Kossuth ia of the opinion that the House of Hapsburg, or rather Austria, ia drawing to an end. He thinks that the German provinces of Austria will join the German Confede ration, and that the Sclavonic provinces will lean to the protection of Russia. He is more than ever convinced that Hungary should be an independent State, and be the barrier between itus aia and Germany. In this connection he says: If Hungary allows herself lo be the tool of the House of Hapsburg she will be lost. Upper and Lower Austria, with Vienna, must become a part of the Ger man empire. The House of Hapsburg will then count on Hungary to save its waning strength. If Hungary puts her self forward at this juncture to oppose German unity, she will, like Poland, be cut up and parceled out to her neigh bors. It is hsr inevitable destiny. Even this morning I find in the journals of Peslh, which coinc to me every day, mat there ia a great emotion in Pesth, be cause the writers say that Austria trem bles in the balance. Thus you perceive that Hungary, through her leaders, has been seduced into becoming subservient to the House of Hapsburg. KU-KLUX TEIALS. The Charleston (8. C.) Courier, in reference to the arrest and trial of citi zens of that State before the tribunals of the United States, says: We learn that the ex-United Slates Attorney General, Mr. Stansbury, of Ohio, and the Hon. Keverdy Johnson, of Baltimore, have been engaged to de fend the men to be tried under the Ku Klux Act of Congreus at the approach ing arsaion or the United States Court, to be held in this city. It will be neces sary to raise a sum of money to carry this proj'-ct out, and it is hoped that each county iu this State will make a contribution. The object is to see that ample justice may oe secured for the Drisoners in arrest, and that the consti tutionality of the Ku-Klux proceedings may be called into question. the scheme meets our hearty approval, and we commend it to those able and wilting to help Let us see to it that the great writs of personal liberty shall be vindi cated before the legal tribunals of the country, and U't us see, further, that the humblest citizen of the Slate, white or b'.ack, shall have all the advice and as sistance that able counsel can give at a time ,when party prejudices aud party enom are pursuing our people even into the Uoittd States Courts. We have no apology for those prisoners guilty of crime, but we repeat it that at this time South Carolina ueeils deltrnce and vindi cation in the press and in the forum. Messrs. Stansbury and Johnson will, no doubt, do all in their power to see that tbe case of the prisoners is fully and ably presented. XOBKOir FAITH. A Northern paper ia disposed to make l'ght of Mormonism. It says we have arrived at last at a solution of the Chi cago question which is personally satis factory. We never believed that the town was burnt because it was built chiefly of wood, or that Mrs. O'Leary's riciout bovine kicked over a lamp be cause the people of Chicago were wont to behave in an unchristian manner when toe marriage yoke galled them. Elder Lindley, a Mormon elder from Salt Lake City, preached to a congrega- lion of Mormons at Williamsburg, Long Island, last Sunday, and he told them mhr Chicaeo was wined out.

In England and Wales, with a popula tion of leas than 23,000,000, there were on the 1st of January, 1871, no less than 1,086,000 paupers. Thus one out of every twenty-one persona is a aubject of charity. Thia ii absolutely frightful, and indicates a terrible state of social civilization. This Btate of things cannot endure long without terrible results. The number of paupers in the manufac turing districts IB less by tone-half than in the agricultural. t Tbk Cincinnati Enquirer rises to re mark: " One of our finest and richest States is Tennessee, and yet out of 28, 000,000 acres no leas than 20,000,000 are uncultivated, and that although it has been a State in the Union for three quarters of a century.' Thia indicates in a striking manner how certainly we are on the verge of that wonderful' de velopment which the territory embraced within the limits 'of the tnited States is destined to attain." THE UNITED STATES COtBTS. Letter from Judge Emmona. A United States offioial in Cincinnati baa received the following letter from Judge Emmons, with reference to the compensation of District Judges, etc. During the last year, in the hope of clearing off the mass of business accu mulated in some of the districts, I suf fered great numbers of cases to be sub mitted on briefs. My intention was to forego my summer'a vacation and dis pose of these causes. I quite broke down in the attempt aud became so se riously ill that an entire suspension of business became a necessity. Since early in September I have been dispos ing of such matters in my circuit as the District Judges cannot hear, and that business is now nearly all finished. I have over two months hard work on my hands if I dispatch it ever so rapidly, and nothing will be gained by Court in suit as to longer delay judgments in the cases submitted for the purpose of hear ing other matters. I have no doubt my duty is to dispose of what is before me. In the future I shall receive no more cases in thia form than I can decide im mediately after their submission. Can you not stimulate some action in reference to the compensation of District Judges when doing duty out of their home districts? I have made one journey to Washington expressly for this object. I found no one opposed to the reasonable law I asked, and had the promise from the Judiciary Committee of its early passage. But it was late in the session, and there was no one there to press it upon their attention, and it was not reported. The old law was re pealed on account of some abuses under it. I was afraid that in some cases fifty dollars a day had been allowed as such expenses. In such old fogy temperance men as you and I thia would be unneces sarily liberal. I proposed to limit it to ten dollars, and conceded if Congress would not be ashamed to go so low, I U the mfUirnam wns nve dollars. The could partially accomplish what! wished nreaent condition was lamentable. With ample force in the circuit to do all ILK JUUIUiai UUllC jjiumjiitj, vvuiu it only be adjusted to the work, there are some districts where business ia ao much behindhand as to bring discredit upon the court, and in dollars nnd cents in jure the Government a thousand fold the trivial expenses asked. Such ia now the diacreditable insufficiency of the District Judges' salary that those who are more than willing, even anxioua, to go where work is awaiting them, are wholly unable to do so. I cannot make an order for Judges to go and do the pub lic work, that which is in excess of their contemplated duties, when Congress re fuses to pay the actual cash disburse ments which their extra efforts cause. The law which so complains of delay could, by a little exertion, cause this to be remedied. If it were so, a single year would shrw the creditable and un usual sight of United States dockets free from causes ready for hearing, and not heard. Mormon HUlory chronology or tie Latter Itoy MmIbi. The existing criaia in Utah lends in terest to the following sketch of Mormon history, furnished to the New York Her ald by Elder Ernest Lisle: Joseph Smith, the prophet and founder of the church, was born in the State of Vermont, in the year of our Lord 1805 The designs of beaveu were first made known to him at the early age of fifteen, when he was informed in a vision of the utter apostacy of the primitive church. September 22, 127, Joseph Smith re ceived from the hands of a messenger from the Lord the golden records con taining the ancient history of this conti nent, written by various prophets, and concealed by Moroni in the year 420. Joseph was informed then that he was to be an instrument in the bands ot liod to re-establish His Chuich on the earth in its former purity and holiness. The prophet then proceeded to translate the golden recorda. 1830 The " Church" was organized. 1833 Our people suffered great perse cution in Independence, Missouri. 1837 Elders and priests were sent to the different nations of the earth in order to establish the " Church" through out the world. 1838 Persecution raged. The prophet was betrayed into the hands of his ene mies by a second Judas a professed friend. Shortly afterward Governer Boggs, of Missouri, issued his order of ' extermination, followed by the massacre of a nurrlber of our people in that Slate. 18,-i9 I he people began to build au voo, Illinois. 1841 The corner-stone of Nauvoo Temple was laid by the prophet. 1842 Joseph prophesied that our peo ple would be driven to the Kocky Moun tains. . 1844 The prophet and his brother were murdered in the prison at Car thage, 111. Daring an eventful life of thirty-nine years, he was arrested, tried, and honorably acquitted over forty times, which so incensed his enemies that they shed the blood of innocent men. Before going to prison Joneph said, in a prophetic manner, "I go like a lamb to the slaughter, but I nn as calm as a summer's morning, for my conscience is void of offense toward God and toward all men. Jt shall he said of i me, he was murdered in cold blood 18.5 A large mob, led on by two ! Christian ministers, attacked nauvoo, i and a battle was fought, j lHlo-The exodus from Nauvoo began.

The Three Negro Mnrderera or the I'ork Family Hung by a Mob. LoL'isvn.i.g, November 18. The three negro murdercra of the Park family were hung by a mob a little after two o'clock this morning. The mob numbered about fifty on horseback and on foot, and were disguised with faces blackened and veiled. On entering Charlestown they broke open' a blacksmith shop and sup plied themselves with sledge-hammers, chiaels, etc. They then proceeded to the jail, and with drawn pistols demand ed the keys of the jailor. He had given them to the Sheriff, and they sent him under guard for them. The Sheriff said the keys were in Jefferaonville. Orders were then given to break tbe doors down, and with chisels, sledges, crowbars, etc., they broke down three ponderous iron doors and took the negroea Taylor and Davis. They then went to the upper jail room for Johnson, when the Sheriff, to aave the jail from total ruin, gave up the keys, and they took ont Johnson. Placing ropes around the negroes necks, they closed the jail doors and went to a place known as the Gipsey Camp, one and a half miles from the town, where they strung the threa mur derers upon separate tro as. At two min utes past three o'clock the leader said, " Our wort ia dona till called together again." The whole affair was done with military precision. Not a word was spoken, only to order or to keep some of the byatandera quiet who attempted to give the alarm. So far as is known there waa not a man absent from his home anywhere in the neighborhood, and while there is no doubt of the guilt of tha negroes, there is general feeling' of regret that the course of the law has been frustrated. The coroner at noon yesterday sent out a wagon for the bodies, and has held an inquest, but gained no information as to who the mob were. The jail was dam aged to the extent of five hundred dollars. WASHINGTON. The Hn-KIni Snb.fmrallli IMa. banded-California foliiiM. WABniKOTOH, November 18. The Con gressional Sub-Committee who have been investigating affairs in Alabama, Georgia and Florida, have finished their labors and disbanded. From what they heard and saw, none of the committee are prepared to reeommend any strin gent measures to be inaugurated in those States. Representative Schofield freely admits that all he heard of the Ku-Klux bugbear time through third parties, aud rested entirely upon hear say evidence. The committee paid no attention to financial matters, leaving those for the consideration of the sub Committee appointed expressly for that purpose. From the reports now in course of preparation it is evideut that the esti mates for the annual expenditures will be greatly increased for the coming year. Senator Williams, of Oregon, arrived here last night from the Pacific coast, in which region he has been for the past five months. He gives it as his belief, from the evident change in public senti ment, that the Btate will go Republican at tbe spring election, and that the party will be enabled to continue a Republi can in the United States Senate. In California, Judge Williams says, the be lief is general that Sargent will be elected Senator in place of Cole, al though the latter is a candidate. The Federal oflice-Tiolders fa"or Cole, but Mr. Sargent and his friends are confi dent of victory, and appear to have a majority of the Legislature. NEW OBK. To t'helera Epidemic Apprehended nNDennlon oi 1 1 u a Bank Hank atobbery. New Yobe, November 18. There were two additional deaths from cholera at the quarantine hospital yesterday, the victims being the children of emigrants. There appears at present to be no rea son to apprehend the spread of the dis ease. The majority of those now ill are in a condition favorable to recovery. The Guardian Savings Bank, of which Tweed is President, has suspended and a receiver been appointed. The Bank has ample securities and depositors will be paid. The Union Trust Company, No. 73 Broadway, was robbed last night, just after bank hours, in a most-daring mari ner. A little after 3 o'clock, just when the clerks were busy, two respectable looking strangers entered and asked for Mr. Frotbingham, the president They were diraoted to his room and were ad mitted by Mr. Frotbingham in peraon. One atated that his name waa Edwards, and wished to borrow three or four thous dcllarj. While he and the president w.-re encaged in settling the prelnnina-r'.i-s of the loan, his companion slipped i ii io un adjoining room and seiaed one hundred bonds of one thousand dollars each of the Montioello Company, lying on the desk. Shortly after they left sus picion alining, Mr. Frothingham dis patched an officer after the strangers, and the one named Edwards was se cured, but tbe other escaped. The bonds stolen cannot be negotiated, as notice has been given by the president of tbe company, but ignorant persons might buy them. $ The Tribune is authority for the state ment that it is asserted in well-informed circles that Tweed banded his resigna tion to Mayor Hall. At a late interview between Tweed and 8weeney, on tbe 8th inst.Mr. Francis M. Bixby is said to have been chosen by Tweed as his suc cessor. It is announced this morning that District Attorney Garvin has resolved to take part in the prosecution of James Fisk, jr., in the suit instituted by Miss Mansfield. The charge is a criminal one. deoraro Franrle Train at Kaabvllle. Special to tha htigtr.) Nashville, November 18. Another grand ovation greeted tbe next Presi dent in thia city laat evening, surpassing Louisville.

The United State, standing between the " East" and " West," according to the old division of the world, are the natural receptacles of tidings from both hemispheres. The London Daily News gives', on good authority, a programme by which our continent ia to be utilized more than heretofore in the inlereat of commerce. It says that three lines of telegraphic cable are about to be laid, under the direction of Mr. Cyrus W. Field. One will be from San Francisco to Honolulu, thence to Midway Island, and thence to Yokohama, five thousand five hundred and seventy-three miles. Another will be from Victoria, Vancou ver's Island, to Hakodadi, Japan, thence to Asiatic Russia, communicating with Poxiette, which is already connected by telegraph with St. Petersburg. From Ate ha, one of the Aleutianlsles, a line is to go to Yokohama and Shanghai, thus communicating with China, while from Yokohama a line is to go to Niphon, thence to Poasiette, Ruasia. It is esti mated that eight thousand fonr hundred and sixty-three miles of wire will be re quired from San Francisco to Possiette. Russia, by the first line. By the other line, from Victoria to the same place, about five thousand two hundred and forty-fonr miles will be needed. Lines from Honolulu to Australia will join San Francisco and Melbourne, touching at the Fiji Islands; thence lines will reach New Caledonia and Brisbane, which is already connected with Mel bourne, Adelaide and Fort Darwin on the north coast, and a contract has been already made for a line from that place to Java. Java is already in communica tion with India aid China. Thus New York may soon become the world s clear ing house for electric mejwages; the re ceivinghouse and distributor of the world s news- Poatal Teleatrapby. The rumor that Postmaster-General Creswell will recommend a system of poatal telegraphy ia probably well grounded, and it ia probable that a bill will be introduced in Congress looking to the adoption of telegraph communi-l cation at rates within the reach of the j poorer classes of tbe people, embracing the more practical features of this system j not under the direct control of the Onv-1 ernment, hut under its supervision. Tbe I plan now suggested is simply to let out f to companies offering the best terms tbe 1 contract for poatal telegraph commune cation. Of the manner of carrying the j mailt over the postal routes, the compli-1 cated schemes embraced in the bill of ' It (irate Brown when in the Senate, and 1 the lesa cumbersome bill introduced in j the House by Mr. Washhuroe, now Min-I istrr to France, are aubatantialiy aban doned.
