4 -3 ' ' J 1 Tlie Tilings that lVere." . A distinguished Belgian author, Dr. Octave Delcjierre, has deliberately gone to work and knocked away a bewildering number of proofs from the most cherish ed aneicut stories and traditions. There is the Colossus of Rhodes, for instance. The Doctor shows it to have been noth ing but an ordinary statute, set up near the harbor, which fiction insists it strad dled. In moments of sober reflection, it is not easy to believe that the sculp tors of the fourth century could build a figure under whose leg a procession of IriJ'tcs might sail, and never touch a piir. Next we are compelled to coucede the Belisarius never was Blind nor a beg g ir; that there was no femala l'ope iu the ninth century; that the tomb in I'aris of Abclard and Heloise is idl hum bug; that the William Tell apple story was conjured up two hundred years after that immortal mountaineer' had twanged his last arrow ; that Petrarch may have been enamored of Laura, but not so in tensely that he neglected to console him self with another woman ; that Galileo ntver uttered the words " still it moves;" that Clarence wasn't drowned in- a Malmsey butt ; and that instead of Le ..nidas only haviug 3t0 tueu to defend Thermopylae,' he had at least 7000. Ter Laps tLe learned Doctor is right in these revolutionary conclusions, but, after all, he simply arrays one set of historians against another, neither set having more than a gra?? or two of truth iu their venerable tomes.

On the 00th of June. 18(52, during the great battles around Richmoud, and at the very moment the bloody and san guinary assault was being made on Gen. ItClellan's positiou on .Malvern Hill, a rolitary horseman, some distance from the scene of action, had dismounted uu ler a cluster of trees, aud was apparent ly listening to the roar of artillery. This elevation had been selected by a surgeon of one of the corps for a field hospital, and so terribly was the conflict that all the shade of the little promontory was needed for the comfort of the wounded. One of the surgeons approached the 6tranger, whom he supposed to bo only a citizen attracted to the spot to witness the battle, and requested him iu a hasty manner to move out of the way. 'Certainly, gentleman," replied the stranger, "the wounded should be kiud ly cared for," and shifted his position. In a very few minutes a courier dash ed up and inquired for Gen. Lee. "Here he is, sir move quickly." The. surgeon was thunder struck, as Gen. Lee, iu citizens' dress, advanced, re ceived the courier, mounted his horse aud gallautly moved to the front. Do the Israelites Neither In ckease sou Decrease? 31 r. J. J Peres recently delivered a sermon in the Jewish Synagogue ia Memphis, on the Passover. It attracted considerable at tention, and was hiahly spoken of as an intellectual effort. The Memphis Ava lanche learns that among the many pro positions he presented was one seeking to prove " how the Israelites were so visibly under the influences of the con se fluence of the dispersion, aud that the it . . - i memies snail not consume you, anu ilthough in the land of your enemies, I will not destroy you,' has been and is literally fulfilled, for the number of the I-rnc-lites this dug is in round figures the s;imc as it was two thousand years ago.

G'titpetitioH vrtu Hum poly. 1. The whole telegraph system of the U. States is now iu the hands of one company. The evils inseparable from such a gigantic aud dangerous monopoly are already num erous arid iucreasiug. Relief can be fouud only ih legitimate competition. Dittributiun of Stock. 2. It is proposed that the benefits of this company shall be enjoyed, not by a few fa vored persons, but by the business men of the country, whose interest it is designed to promote, and whose liberal patronage will insure its success. To this cud it is decided to place the Stock at all commercial points. It w-ii' be distributed to Rankers, Jerchants, Manufacturers, and others in limited amounts. The Caj-iUil Stuck. (H.) Is Ten Millions of Dollars, divided into shares of One Hundred Doars each. Cnll ZiW to hi Uailr. 4. One per ct of the stock will be required on subscribing, and subsequent calls, not to exceed five per cent per month, will be made by the Btard of Directors, from lime to time, os may be necessary to supply funds to construct and equip the lines: but no calls will be made after t he one per cent is paid until the entire capital stock shall have been subscribed. Artuirl Ctpital Required. Tt. The company confidently believe th-it thirty-five per cent of the capital stock will construct and fully equip Twenty-five Thou sand miles of Wire, which will connect all the commercial centers and important places in the United States. This opinion rests upon the most reliable estimates and re sponsible offers to coustrnct and equip the lines. Ct. In all cases the net earnings of this com pany will be applied to the payment of divi dends on its capital stock, and in no event will earnings be diverted to the construc tion of new liues.

Ii?a:ons for the U- lief. (8) May be found in the enormous pro: of every considerable telegraph line operated on this continent. The present telegraph monopoly has "watered its stock to the ex tent of orer one thousand per cent on the amount paid in; and still it pays, on the stock thus inflated, satisfactory dividends. Our company will duplicate all the 'remun erative lines now operated by the monopo ly, and subscribers w ill pay for our stock only the exact cost of our lines. Additional Ilea font. 9. The existing telegraph monopolies have never sought to supply adequately the de maud for the use of the telegraph, much less have they attempted to stimulate such demand by an increase of facilities and a reduction of rates. While their facilities have remained about constant, their rates have steadily advanced, until the use of the telegraph has come to be a prodigious tax upon the commercial necessities of the coun try. Au advance in rates is their uniform expedient for limiting the amount of their business to their restricted facilities. Ineretutd Facilities and Lotrer Hates. 10. Every intelligent man knows that an enterprise founded upon 'he necessities of trade has a healthier aud more durable basis when it aims to do a constantly iucrea.siug business at fair rate thau when it does merely a restricted business at exorbitant and increasing rates. The success of cheap postage in Europe and America seeuis never to have been thought of by the telegraph monopolists. It is believed that if ten times the present telegraphic facilities vere furnished to the public at one-teuth of the present rates, the increase of business would justify the change. Our Proposed Telegraphic Range. 11. " Trunk lines throughout th United States and Territories, which shall ultimate ly connect with lines to Europe, Asia, and South America.

It is provided that every stockholder, in addition to his regular dividends, shall receive an equitable rebate on the amount of business furnished by himself, payable an nually ; thtss, the stock being widely dis tributed, Dd every stockholder having a special interest to augment the business of the company, success is deemed inevitable. Distribution of Director. 14. To secure i:i the management an equit able representation of the stockholders throughout the country, the. large commer cial centers will be rcpreseutad in its Board of Directors, and local agetits will be ap pointed on the recommendation of the stock holders in the various localities, aud the operations of the company thus become gen eral in its management as well as its busi ness. The company Permanent. 15. Heretofore every new telegraphic en terprise has soon?r or laN.r been absorbed by the dominant monoply ; but the third sec tion cf the act of Congress which confers upon this company its valuable frauchises absolutely requires it to maintain a separ ate and independent existence. See the Act below. j TU Old Srt'in. 10. Under it telegraphic companies have been organized by a few wealthy capitalists; these companies have beeu consolidated un der one Board of Management; they are made up of orpoiition companies, with par- ftfl. lateral, and jselesa routes, costly to maintain.

' 17. The shareholders in this organization will be many times more numerous than those of any other telegraph company, and will be interested in its business and suc cess. We shali establish only direct trunk routes required by the business of the couu try. We shall incur no liabilittes beyond our means in the treasury; and we hope by energy, economy, dispatch, and careful management, to be enabled to compete suc cessfully with the present consolidated monopoly, and to furnish the public cheaper and better facilities of telegraphic commun ication. the Prorpect. 18. The ImsJess of telegraphing is in its infancy. It must rapidly increase in the im mediate future and yield still greater re turns. The business of the Southern States having been suspended during the war will soon be re-established. Lines of telegraph are projected and in process of construction to Europe, Asia,and South America, which, when completed, w ill at once materially add to the telegraph business of the country. Th proposed routes of our range are an nually becoming more and more populous. Cheaper rates and more rapid, certain and reliable facilities will greatly popularixe the telegraph and insure its substitution for the mails for the purpose of current com mercial correspondence. All these consid erations poiut to our future as an import ant one, and plainly show that this is the golden opportunity for inaugurating a tele graphic enterprise of the character aud magnitude of the one now proposed. ' .-la Extraordinary Advantage, 10. On the application of The National Telegraph Company, Congress at its recent session enacted The National Telegraph Law, which is printed herewith. The exist ing consolidated monopoly opposed the pas sage of this law with all the iufiuence and Tower it r--.il- -"7 --.l hut thm juM5e In terest prevailed, and we have now a nation al recognition of the importance of our en terprise with a graut of the most valuable franchises ever conferred upon a Telegraph company. The National Telegraph Company fully accepted the terms of the Law, July 30th. UStji), by filing their written acceptance with the Postmaster General of the United States. JB Subscribers should in all cases trans mit funds to the Treasurer of this company, Frederick Prentice, Esq., No. 20 Pine street, who will send by return mail receipts for the same. All other communications should be directed to George B. Walter, Secretary, National Telegraph Company, G4 Broadway, New York. Whenever subscribers desire so to do, they can pay at once thirty-five per cent an the full amount of their subscriptions and receive certificates of stock issued by the company; and iu all cases were thirty-five per cent has been paid in, and the Treas urer's receipts returned, certificates w ill be issued to holders of the receipts, or their oriler. Your attention is called to the papers accompanying this, and a prompt resporse is necessary to ensure a certain participa tion in the beirs of this organization.
