BELL T. & T. CO. Supreme Court of the United States. May 22, 1809. A TELEPHONE COMPANY IS NOT ENTITLED TO THE BENEFIT ipV'' THE ACT OF CONGRESS ALLOW? ING THE USE OK POST ROADS BY TELEGRAPH COMPANIES. This was a suit by the telephone com? pany to restrain tho City of Richmond from interefrlng with Its poles, wires, etc., on the streets of said city, the com? pany claiming the right to use the streets without the consent of the city under the act of Congress which allows to telegraph companies the use of all post roads, etc. The lower court decid? ed in favor of the plaintlfr, and the city appealed. The Court says: The principal question In this case is whether the Circuit Court and Circuit Court of Appeals erred In holding that the appellee was entitled to claim the benefit of the act of Congress approved July 24th, 1S66. (After reciting the act in question and referring to decisions upon It, the Court continues): But independently of nny question as to the extent of the authority grant? ed to "telegraph" companies by the act of 1806, we are of opinion that the courts below erred In holding that the plaintiff. In respect to the particular business It was conducting, could In? voke the protection of the act. The plaintiff's charter, it Is true, describes \t as a telephone company and tele? graph company. Still, as disclosed by the bill and the evidence In the ease, 'he business In which It was engaged 7 nd for the protection of which against hostile action It Invoked the aid of the Federal Court, wns the business trans Tcted by using what Is commonly called i telephone. It may be thnt If the telephone had been known and In use when the act was pnssed, Congress would have embraced In Its provisions "Orripnnlos employing Instruments for electrically transmitting articulate ?meecb. But the question is not what Congress might have done In 1SR6. nor what It may or ought now to do, but ?vhat was In its mind when enacting ?he statute In question. ? * ? When, therefore, the not of ISW speaks of tele? graph pnmp'n'os It could have meant, inly stich companies ns employed the means then used or embraced by ex istlng Inventions for the purpose of ? rapTrlMlner messages merely by ?ound?"of Instruments nnd by signs, or ivrljlnvs. Wo now odhtrlire that the ?>ct of nnd the sections of the Revised Statules In which the provi? sions of tliM net have been preserved, have no nnnllent'op to lelnpjinne com nbnles whose h?i!?lni?!?ii I?

TITF MEASURE OF DAMAGES FOR BREACH OF A CONTRACT TO BUY BREAD TS THE NET PROFITS THE PLAINTIFF WOULD HAVE MADE DURING THE TIME OF THE CONTRACT. A CONTRACT TO FURNISH "GOOD WHEAT BREAD." PROVIDING THAT IF BUYER'S SUPERIN? TENDENT DID NOT CONSIDER IT GOOD HE COULD CANCEL THE CONTRACT. MAY BE CANCELLED BY HIM WHETHER OR NOT THE BREAD FURNISHED IS OF THE QUALITY CONTRACTED FOR. This wns an action to recover from the defendant damages for the breach of a contract Ihey had made with plain? tiff to buy bread of him for three months. The plaintiff alleged '.?that - In ?pursuance "rtrUve^c?iil75c.l lie delivered" to defendants good wheat bread, such as tho contract called for, as long as they would receive the same, but was afterwards prevented from delivering the an me by said defendant's, and that he w.tk damaged $100. Jt was part of the contract that, "should the quality of the bread not be what the super? intendent, in his judgment, considered good, he should have power to cancel the contract." The court, charging the jury, says: If you believe that the bid made by the plaintiff was accepted by the de? fendant without the condition or qual? ification as claimed by defendant * ? the measure of damages would be what his net gain or profits would have been had he been permitted to perform the whole contract; that 16 furnish the bread for the entire quarter covered by the agreement. And, further, If you believe from the testimony that It was made a condition of the agreement by the defendant that defendant's super? intendent should have the power to cancel the contract if the quality of the bread should, in the judgment df said superintendent, be considered not good, and that euch condition wa? made known to th'e plaintiff and ac? cepted or agreed to by him, and In the exercise of such power the euperin riakes the Hair grow.

MLLE F1FI. The Philadelphia Public Ledger says of "Mile. Fin." which is to be presented at the Academy of Music next Tuesday, September 19th: "Mile. Fill" was introduced to an au? dience that crowded the Chestnut Street Opera House last evening, and proved to be the brightest French farce that has been seen here for a long time. Iz treats very lightly the old subject di? vorce, but In most original fashion. The play treats delicate subjects with a great deal of freedom, but It Is filled with humor, and Its originality makes It refreshing. There were many cur? tain recalls, not only after the first two acts, but at the end of the play, the In? terest being fairly sustained In the last act by the Introduction of new matter, and the audience was hearty in Its ex? pression of approval. Scats on sale this morning. Prices: 25c. to $1. The N. Y. Mercury says of "The Mys? terious Mr. Bugle," which comes to the Academy next "Wednesday and Thurs? day, and Thursday matinee: "The Mysterious Mr. Bugle" is billed as n new farce in three acts, and it may honestly be called a legitimate farce. It certainly made a most fav? orable Impression on last night's au? dience at the Lyceum, and it is fairly entitled to be classed among the few real successes of the year. Mrs. lty Icy throughout has shown wonderful skill In her work; she has built.a play that grows stronger from the first net or. to the close. The first act is deli? cately artistic, and tho second and third abound in amusing scenes and complications that are handled with the certain touch of a skilled cratsman." FRED WARDE. The appearance of the distinguished actor, Frederick Warde, In "The Lion'a Mouth," at the Academy of Music, September 22-23, is more than a dc Pghtful anticipation. Mr. Warde, who has always been a favorite In this city, not only on account of his being the foremost expositor of classic roles on the American stage and the pleasing entertainment which he always pre? sents, but in part because he is a Ben la) fellow who always makes a host of friends nnd followers wherever he ap? pears.

A MM f Dollar lllnriiK, The day before the battle of Wll llamsburg the writer hereof heard a Confederate soldier offer a silver halt dollar for a biscuit. He held It in his fingers, high above his head, as he marched on toward Wllllainsburg, shouting his offer repeatedly as he moved on. At last he got a response. A whitish looking fellow (not a soldier, thank goodness!), wearing a paper cap and a long apron, saw the gleaming silver, ran back to what was evidently a cooking-tent, and soon re-appeared with a biscuit?one small biscuit. It corresponded with the cook hi size, however; he was small, very small, and he felt smaller, no 'doubt, when he took the money for the biscuit, and every? body Jeered at and hissed him. The rest of us that morning had re? ceived a ration of hard corn on the ear, filched from our artillery-horses?three small ears apiece. Some men received only one ear, and glad to got It, as others got nothing at all that day. The Yankees, in those days, sometimes call? ed us "Corn-fcd-euates"; but they hard? ly knew how the gibe, and fact corres? ponded now and then. I'rlcn ? f Fionr A <l \ n nr cd .

The concensus of opinion and years of experience com? bine to maintain that pure woolen underwear is the most htalthful and comfortable in which to clothe the human race. When we consider that we. pass two-thirds of our lives, from infancy to old age, in our underwear, no further argu? ment is necessary to prove I that the matter of good or bad j health and general comfort or I discomfort, is most closely connected with the class of material worn next to the skin. Here are a few reasons why "STUTTGARTER" IS THE BEST SANITARY UNDERWEAR. It is made of pure natural sheet's wool, which is a non-conductor of heat, viz: H does not conduct or draw heat away quickly. It is porousxind light. Although it absorbs the moisture off the skin, it does not absorb it into the fibre.which is actually unabsorbent and somewhat oily, thus allowing the moisture to pass of. The natural heat of the body is greatly lost by what is called "radia 1 tion." We are always radiating heat from our bodies, and if we were turned into the open air in different climates without clothes, we should die of loss of animal heat, or of exposure, as it is called, very much quicker than wc would die from want of food. Wool, as a non-conductor of heat when worn next to the skin, allow us to keep for the important uses of di? gestion, energy, etc., the heat which the food and air has made. Wc are not supposed to preserve all the heat that the body creates by ex? ertion in the course of a day's work, and we desire to get rid of it gradu? ally. We must dispose of it in such a manner if we do not wish to subject j ourselves to rheumatism, inflamma? tion, bronchitis, etc. Nature aids us in the evaporation of the perspiration, and k is in order to allow this to escape from the body (so that it shaH not lie soaking upon it) that we must wear porous undercloth? ing. The foregoing facts should convince even the most skeptical that any one wishing to wear garments beneficial to health should never wear next to the skin anything but wool, which means "Stuttgarter."
