Of conrse it Vfna tho inovitabln result that tlin immllor htko boats, the." old wooden IjargcH iuic( nailing vessels, which in thoir tinio had dona the bjtBinem of the great InkoB, should be orowdod out.

This came when u few weeks ago a reprosontativd of u lioh New York syndicate known as tho Atlantic Transportation company appeared in various lake ports and began chartering for long terms barges arid vosselH of every duKoriptlon.

TnrantiunH 01 uio syrnmtuiH, wi $ii,000,000 of capital, were the cause of uo little nutii^imiBs in coal circles in tbfl east. A rumor was Btion afloat to the effect that a monopoly of the coal carrying trade vvao ninied at, and this only found freHb verification when tbe company started ont by expending $750, 000 for vessels. The purchases continued until a floot of eight seagoing tugs, four steamers nnd 42 barges had been acquired. Later an order waa given to a Bath (Me.) shipbuilder for four barges of larger dimensions and coating abont $48,000 each. Gradually tbe purpose of tbe Atlantic company leaked ont. Tho company so- cured control of the entire output of the coal mines on tbe Chesapeake and Ohio railroad, or rather that portion of tbe output which found a market in the east and which, with otber contracts secured about the name time, aggregates fully 4,000,000 tons of coal annually. Tbe Atlantic company found a few wenlts ago, however, tbat of tho 250,000 tons of coal or more that must be moved every mouth they bad facilities for the movement of only 175,000 tone, and so Mr. Walter 3, Basse, the general nr.auager of the company, went to the grent hikes cities expecting to expend abont $800,000 in the purchase of several vessels to be takiin to tbo coast. Mr. Berne is a young man, but .he is ehrewd, aud so when he gained an insight into the situation on tho lakes and saw that many of tbo smaller wooden craft, if not exactly being driven ("• * of business, were at Itiast being operated unprotitably, he quickly conceived the scheme for chartering these vessels for a term of years. The vcBsolB are to be engaged in the coal trade between Newport News and Mew York, Boston and other New England ports This is not regarded an nearly no dangerous a route as that traversed in going from Buffalo to tbe head of tbo lakes. In tbo first place, it ia a run of only 110 miles from Newport Newa to Delaware breakwater, and only 125 miles from there to New York.

Bat Portsmouth proper uinst always retain its individuality in oue respect. Neither Sontbatm, with its villas, nor Landport, with its hulls, can take from it tbe characteristic features which are its glory and its renown. It is with Portsmouth that Englishmen connect the first appearance of a regular naval establishment, when, by order of that eminent prelate who was, as it were, secretary of the navy to King .lohu, the docks for the war galleys were inclosed in a fortification and penthouses were built for their tackle. Portsmouth and its yard were very small affaire in thuse days, when the navy of England consisted of abont 60 galleya Tbongb not perhaps tbe first established — since Deptford and Woolwich claim priority — Portsmouth dockyard has, since its foundation in 1512, boon the principal national institution of tbe kind. On its slips some of tbo finest ships have been built, aud from its wharfs tbe noblest wooden walla and Ironclads of England have taken tboir departure. There ore fewmonnrobs who have sat on England's throne who have not paid Portsmouth dockyard a visit, snd many foreign potentates have seen an} marveled at its numerous docks, sheds, factories and basins busy with naval preparations uneqnaled on the faoo of the globe.

At tho McDaniel residence the burglar succeeded In entering tbe house, but a member of the family was awakened and frightened him away. Seven families have now been visited by house breakers during the last two weeks, and citizens are beginning to realize that something must be done to locate the robber and prevent further depredations. While suspicion can be placed on no particular parties, people are beglnnlcg to believe it is not the work of professional burglars but of persons much nearer home, and very well accomplished In their profession.

Reports of much irregularity in tbe voting at EdwardBvilie on last Tuesday are being circulated and gross 'rauda are charged to tbe Democratic ward-beelera and vote-buyers at tbe county seat. It ia said tbat tbe Ed- wardsvllle Democratic politicians bought up the slum vote of the town, paying 92 apieee for votes. To Insure the delivery of the vote these politicians adopted methodsjtbat would do credit to a Shylook. They gave to each man who wished to sell bis vote a piece of "impression" paper upon which tbe vote was recorded aa the ballot was marked. Upon returning the tissue paper showing now the ballot was marked the price was paid. There Is some talk .of throwing out the whole vote of the township because of this irregularity, but It will not affect the raault of the election. Edwardsvllle township went heavily Democratic and the only effect of the throwing out of the vote would be to Increase the Republican majorities all down the ticket.
