: ' Tklbghaph to England. The New
Tork evening Post under tlie head of
""news from Europe in five days!" notices
Hlie giant that hat recently been made hy
the public authorities of New Found
land to Mr. H. B. Tibhatis and associates
of New York city, of the exclusive right
to construct and use the magnetic tele,
graph across that Island, for the period
of 30 years. The grant is designed to fa
cilitate Mr. Tibbatts in his scheme for
the establishment of steam and telegraph
ic communication between New York
and ; Liverpool or London in five days
which now appeals to be perfectly prac
ticable.
: MV. Tibbatts proposes to intersect that
line at the nearest point with his line
which is to terminate at St. Johns. The
distance from St. Johns to Cape Ray
across New Founuland, is 450 miles.
.The distance across the St. Lawrence is
about 480 miles, and from thence to the
intersection with the Halifax line, about
60 miles, making in all, about 550 miles
of which 43 only are sub marine. The
navigable distance from St. Johns to Gal
way is 1 ,647. miles or about five d ay's sail
The telegraphic communication between
Galway and London will be complete
the current year, when without difficulty
or any special effort, (the Post says) the
New York merchant can communicate
with his London correspondent in about
half the time now usually consumed."

"We have seen the mBteiials accumu

was bigger than a mini a hand l.elore ine
the session of the late CnnstiiuUonalCon
vention. In the proceedings of that

lapidity. Recent movements have shown
that an attempt is made to stiike a sweep
ing blow at all the corporations in the
State, and that the entire Locofoco par
ty is, if possib'e, to be organized upon
that basis as upon a leading principle.
Locofocoism cannot keep its force com
pact, hut unonaome plan of affirmative
aggression upon some giand public in
terest. It is the duty of the public to be
igilant, and we are assured that a few
days will develope conclusive testimony
of the facts winch we have charged.
ryOnly the American and English
prisoners of the Cuban expedition have

Hungarian and Creole prisoners have
been condemned to ten years hard labor
in chains, and have been sent to Ceutra, a

Mormuna sailed from Liverpool Feb. 10,

Some 250 of the lattter company left

tTAt ibe present day, ssys the Chi
tago Journal, there is no fact so repeat
edly proved as that a railroad creates bu
nines ln ratio that even;the mostcalcu
lating doea not dream. The last report
of the Massachusetts Railway, which
passes over the Green Mountains, indi
cates how magically business of this kind
grows. To the present time, this road
of only 150 miles in length, has cost SO,
953,758 84, and yet the whole sum earn
ed by this road, since its beginning, in
1839, is 810.556,8.')6 37. It has already
earned almost a million of dollars more
than its entire cost; and this on a route
where a few schoonera and a few stage
coaches were sufficient to do all the
: business before tile road was built.

spanking of the prititine' ipjeslioii, the
Statesman of Saturday says:
"It has surely come to a pretty pass,
when democratic victories re to enure to
whin advantage. We might just as well
let the Whtgs take the held at once, and
save the troub'd of political contests! It
would be a pietiy exhibition for freemen
to make to Ihe world a fitio specimen of
(lep.ihlicm success."
An honest confession, Iru'y! If the
printing is I" be given to the loiresl hid
der, as ihe present 'Democratic ('..nsti
'tltioti prescribes, the IJrmoctacy
"rn'njht just as well let the U big fake
the field si once!" "A fine specimen of
Republican success," sure enotioli, for a
Pemoerntic porty to submit the dispensa
tion of "spoils" to a law nf its own crea
tion! No, w; that would never do!
John C. Calhoun was a prominent Demo
crat, and he said the party was "held to
gether by the cohesive power of public
plunder." So the Statesman seems lo
think, for it proposes u disband the par
ty and "let the Whigs take the field."

to contain five men of ordinary size,
measuring in width, three feet four inch

"Three men could have woiked in it
at the same time, with convenience. It
required six men to take him from the
bed on which he expired. This waa
done by raising a platform removing
the head board ofthe bedstead, and tak
ing him out endwise. They could not
get the coffin into the house, but by tak
ing nfT the ilonr faeinz of an old vacated
house that stood in the yard, they got it
into that, and carried the corpse thither
on three empty bags. A waemi and four
horses stood prepared, anfl ten men
placed the c liio and its Contents upon It.

Tariff of Frririits for Railroads

urn Tariff of charges, bevnnd which the
Chartered Company should not go, ihe
object being lo compel Such compa
nies to accommodate the pulilic at tne
lowest rates. It was left lo the present
day and our Board of Public Works, to
discover that the public interest which
diclated loir fare andj'reight, is opposed
to the State interest! It is now thought
to be sound policy by these wise ones, to
compel such Companies to keep their
charges to the highest point, and pi event
low charges. The producing classes and
business men, who have the most freight,
and travel most, are to be compelled to
pay more to such Companies than ihey
ask. In accommodate the State! This is
something new.
