W'K.have received from the Superintendent of the Census advanced sheets of 'iable No. I, giving the population of the several States and Territories by counties cud parisbeK. Koine of the most curious .revelations furnished by these figures relate lo the Chinese in the I'uited States. They are distributed throughout twenty-three of lhe thirty-seven States, Beven out of the right organized Territories, and the Federal I'iirtrict of Columbia. The total number, including fifty-three -lupiuiese, who for convenience are classed as Chinese, is 1 1:1, '.". I. Bgainst M,MJ I" I :'. alul 'H in ,,H"'" i showing that while this element multiplied itself forty-five times within the first decade, it did not even double itself within the second. Of the Rggregate nurnberCalifornia has thiee-fourlhs, or 4'.i.:!K. Idaho, Oregon. Nevada and Montana come next, with from one to four thousand each, while tin- remainder of the States and Territories have from one to a hundred apiece. This does not greatly look as though the country were on the verge of ruin from "cheap Chinese labor." The Indians not included in tribes that is. those who for one reason or another have abandoned their communal existence, entered on reservations or otherwise become incorporated among the people, number MfM&i against 44,017 in lsiio, showing a fulling off during the last de"ade of l.'!st;. This enumeration embraces by far the larger portion of the Indian race, and is quite suggestive as indicating a likelihood that the Indian problem will ultimately be solved by a power greater than laws or legislator extinction by mortality. The colored element has increased from 1,441,827 in lK;o, to 4,80, WW, a gnin of MS, 183; which docs not argue the running out of the lace, as predicted by Democratic statisticians at the close of the v:ir. The only htates which show a decrease in this class of population are Kentucky. Missouri, Virginia and West Virginia, the total decrease being :''-'. 47" persons. Taking one person in six as the ratio of voters, the colored electors num-4er H,M4 1 with one in five as the ratio. !'", (H1. In some of the States now classed as doubtful the influence of the colored vote will be very perceptible hereafter : in a number of cases, indeed, they will hold the balance of power. Peuusylvn liia haR a colored population of 66,994, against C$,941 in lsiio. being an increase of S,M& This should give a colored vote of nearly or quite eleven thousand, the great Juilk of hi. h will of course be thrown for the K publi can ticket in the ensuing State election. When, in his Saratoga speech a week or two ngo, Mr. Speaker Hlaine cited the onor-mouH wealth of the members of the Tam many King as presumptive evidence that a ortion of ttie public money had stuck to their fingers in the process of handling it, the Maine iStiindtin. a Democratic journal, ejjdeavored to break the force of the argument by holding him up as a millionaire rolling in luxury, and intimating that he had procured his money through connection with public affairs. The only fact adduced in support of the statement was that Mr. ! uni: paid a tax on real and personal estate of f.lT.iHHi; after which the Hlandiird pioceeded to say i "Thlg IS;, COO, however, sloes not lucluile a large coal aud un. I property In trie BtotfM of Pennsylvania and Virginia, nor a valuable Interest in a Lake yu-is-rlor copper mine, nor Ium pririe.-lv residence In VVat-hiiigtoh, valued at $4n,nos or Ifin.uoO, or any other property. " This article was copied and commented npoti bv the New York World, and subsequently by pretty nearly every Democratic journal in the country, as proof of the cosy manner in which Radical officials feathered their private nest.-. The charge having come to the notice of Mr. Blaise, that gentleman replies through the columns of the paper which started the calumny, that he never owned a dollar of any kind of property in Virginia in his life, that he never owned a dollar in copper mines or copper stocks, that his ' princely residence" in Washington was purchased for (38,609, which saves him about ift'J.lXX) annual rent, and that his property in Pennsylvania was purchased near his birth place at very low figures, several years Iefore his name was ever mentioned for Congress, anil that the income derived therefrom yields only a respectable competency instead of the great wealth assigned to him. Now let the WH4 and its lesse? echoes have the candor ami honesty to publish the retraction as swiftly and heartily as they gave tongue to theslander : and while doing so let Ink and Company disclose the sources of their own incomes, and the manner in which they were obtained, as frankly and fairly as Mr. Hlaine has done. Ten years ago Tweed was a lankrnpt chair maker to-day he boasts himself worth twenty millions of dollars. A few yearn since was a poor clerk: he in now a modern Cbkscs. How did they amass their immense riches ? Was it by diligent attention to legitimate business, like Speaker Blaine, or was it by devoting their time and energies to systematic and scientific violation of the Eighth 4 ommandment ? Wins, lost spring, the llcmocratic put;, knelt at the confessional and acknowledged itn manifold lapses from virtue, we expressed, it will be remembered, very grave doubts an to whether the moist-eyed penitents vi odd hold out more than half-way to the distant shrine which the priest had named as the end of their journey of penance. Out worst forebodings have beou more than realized. Had Vai.i.ani.igHaM lived he would 1 n.bablv, as we stated at the time, have trudged on faithfully enough, and possibly the cheery magnetism of his companionship might have caused a baker's dozen or so of his fellow-sinners to have stuck to him through thick and thin. W ith hiH loss, however, no one was left to I. oar "the banner with the strange device," to cry "Excelsior,'' or to give prompt and Mifhemg answer to the men and maidens who warned of danger and welcomed to rest. Hence the further proseeution of the pilgrimsge has been indefinitely postponed. Oilman wus too far off, Jordan was a very haul road to travel, the sandals of the pilgrims gave out, their feet grew sore, the j o i Us of the Egyptian flesh-pots were wafted to them enticingly, Phahoah was not so i .ol a fellow as had been thought, there was a good deal of lighting to be gone through, should the parly push ahead, it is hard to ver oh! lies, ou the whole we had better fgo back, they said, and - such is the end of the New Iieparture. li ti i: likes tsj be called the "Hero of llitlicl." in the hope, probably, that t.,u r ftl will thiiik he was actually light f mad at the front ou that acciWion.

For a number of days past a certain printing firm of that city has been engaged in printing pamphlet for one of its customers, containing nn expont of the financial operations of Hall. Connolly, Twsrn and Sweeney. This coming to the ears of that noble qnartette, some scoundrels, supposed to have been hirelings of the gang, the other night, after the establishment was closed, surreptitiously entered the press and composing rooms of the firm, and tampered with the type forms as they lay on the press, making a nnniher of alterations which entirely changed the sense of the matter. The firm subsequently learned that OaMN had, through a third party, made vertures to the author for the pnrpose of securing a modification of the pamphlet ; but his offer having been rejected, he retorted to the desperate expedient above mentioned. Fortunately this villainous piece of Vandalism was discovered by the author before any of the pamphlets were irculated, and the firm is now engaged in reprinting them. They were intended partly for distribution at the mass meetingheld on Monday evening to inquire into the frauds in the city finances, and this was probablv the reason why they were secretly tampered with. Link by link these fellows are forging the chains w ith which to hang them. And yet they boast that they have the Democratic party at their back, and express entiro confidence that they shall succeed in transferring their field of operations from the municipal government of New Y ork city to the National Government at Washington. Could insolence and turpitude possibly go further? The meeting of citizens in New York Monday evening to take steps to defend themselves against the Tammany thieves and punish the offenders, was one of the most important ever held in that city. Nor is it likely to end merely in talk. Every means which the ballot-box. Legislature and courts afford will be invoked against the con siurators. Although tne meeting was com posed of all parties, it cannot be disguised that th' Tainmanyites constitute the head of the Democratic party of the country. That organization is the fountain of supplies, the source of counsel to every part of the ountry, and the reliance on which the par ty in all quarters depeuds. The Tammany leaders in one sense are as much before the people of l'eunsylvania as New Y'ork. be cause they are furnishing money to carry this State, as an important help to sustain themselves at home. Nowhere do we find Democratic leaders, their newspapers or con ventions uttering a word condemnatory of Tammany. In this silence, and fre quently by open approval, Tammany receives snpport which it gains by furnishing money stolen from the citizens of New Y'ork to carry State and local elect nns. We repeat, it is in this way that the Tammany leaders are in the Pennsylvania election, and are to be passed upon here as palpably as in New York. Pennsylvania votes first. Should she vote fox Tammany, New Y'ork would be safe for another term, for we need not say what would be the influence which would bo exerted by a Democratic victory here on the election in New York a month later. Now need we add a word why Republicans, to the last man. should come out It is by apathy only that they can be beaten and Tammanv win a victorv. The Royal Commission some time ago tqipointed to investigate and report upon the coal supply of England, has complete 1 its labors and rendered its report. After making due allowances for waste it is estimated that the coal which is or may be made immediately accessible, amounts to 90,307,-000,909 tons, or about .'is,0M tons to every householder. In addition to this it is calculated that 56,378,000,008 tons might be dug at a depth of four thousand feet, making a grand total of 148,489,0119,099 tons. It is not certain, however, that coal could be dug st this depth. Even with the present improved appliances for ventilation it is calculated that the temperature would rise to a hundred degrees. But even supposing that miners eonld live and work at such a depth, at the present rate of consumption and increase of consumption the whole supply will last only a hundred and ten years, although it is asserted that the maximum OMt- -umption has been reached, and that with a diminishing ratio the supply will last three hundnd and sixty years. There is no doubt, however, that the rapidity with which lhe coal fields are being exhausted is somewhat discouraging to the future of her manufactures, unless science shall meantime ,'ome to the rescue, and furnish a substitute for coal. We observe, too, that a new theory has been devised to the effect that unless the encroachments of the sea can he stopped, England will ultimately become so reduced in size as to be unable to contain even a tithe of its present population. These various matters are harped upon somewhat mournfully by the press of that country. which seem to take a certain pleasure in being miserable. Hkiie is a nut for our Democratic free trade friends, who shout themselves hoarse in denunciation of the tariff imposed by the National Government on iron, to crack at their leisure. The city government of New York some time ago passed an ordinance requiring all columns, pillars and girders use 1 for building purposes to be inspected and pay a tax of seventy cents per foot length. In a single building, and that not an extra large one, recently inspected under this law, it is said that the tax in question amounted to some thirteen hundred dollars, in return for which the inspector simply looked at the iron and wrote out a certificate, subjecting neither column, pillar nor girder to any examination or test, however cursory or slight. Furthermore, this Tammany inspector is himself an iron founder, which is suggestive of u possibility that he may sometime u-fose to give a certificate unless the iron is purchased of himself. The iron masters of New York are reported as generally complaining 'hat the whole operation is a blackmailing swindle, devised by the King to benefit its fuvorites by fleecing the people. This intpection tax averages about one cent per pound, or something like twenty dollurs a ton more than double the amount of any tariff ever imposed by -the general Government on any iron of similar character and class. When the organs and orators of Free-Trade Democracy have left off proving that we are mined by Protection, a little attention to this other matter will be in order. Thulf: seems to be a possibility that, after .11. th- young Ksjmnitih King will win the nits f his pSOJple in spite of thnir dter-miruititdi to the contrary. He lias taken the sensible course of making a journey through bin dominions for the purjose of acquainting himself with the condition and wants of the people by actual observation, aud it appear, from onr cable reports, that thiH stroke of policy, or whatever it may be called, is working a complete revolution of sentiment in his favor in many parts of the country: added to which, his liberal amnesty policy has drawu toward him very many who 1 ut a short time ago hated him as an alien usurper. These are hopeful signs, and all hough it is exceedingly ditn:ult to tell what a day may bring forth in Spain, M chronically chaotic are its constituent elements of society, it begins to look as if some slight taste of the blessings of peace and pronperity were Btill possible for her volcanic j.nd impoverished people. Certain it is that the young Italian has thus far proved a far better Spanish King than any recent ruler born on Spanish soil, and it is earnestly to ne hoped that the manly energy with which he has addressed himself to the situation may induce his subjects to second his efforts nnd to he as true to each other and to himself as he is loyal and true to them. A w biter in the Norfolk Yiryhiuui states what the Democratic party will do if it only regains control of the Government. We ( I note : DtH(rue It aH you will, to this favor thincs will come at iaat.' Tne West, the Northwest ami the South, which are one in Interests, will combine anl repeal ttie tariiT.the act of emancioation it neeasarv, ainl the new amendments to the Constitution, whi;h are fraufls on that instrument. As a question or dollars and cents, of simple addition and subtraction, not to sav justice and common honesty, the new allies of the Sonth will rind It to their interest to a.s-biinie their share of the present debt of the rebel kov-emmfiit. and to pay by a (reneral tax on ail property the war debt of the South." Now let the Republicans of Pennsylvania, i! ti,. v feel like it, by absenting themselves from the polls, or by going squarely over to the Democrats, contribute to carry out this programme. Tub Philadelphia w, noticing the fact that Mr. Ueorge O. Kvaus, .State aeut, charged with eaiWez-Bj stent, Is in New York City, adds : "Mr. Evans's J air and )card have turned while as sivtw, and he ih in w rlbed as exceedingly nervous; liLi haa l trembles a il fct.icU-u with Hie palsy." FnoM the re-port of the Bureau of Statistics it appears that last year petroleum was the fourth article of export from the I'nited States, the total value being nearly thirty-six millions of dollars, and exceeded only by breadstuff's, enttoa nnd coin. When it is considered that almost the entire exports of petroleum were from Pennsylvania the importance of the product as contributing to the wealth of our State is at once apparent. And yet it is secondary to our mineral wealth, a statement which suggests the immense natural resources of Pennsylvania. New Depnrlnre in the Episcopal Church. A new litieral movement, of some Importance when considered In connection with its probable results, has Is en Inaugurated in the Episcopal Church. It appears that for some three years a number of distinguished divines, of this country and of England, have len jointly engaged in revising the hook of Common Prayer, with intent to exclude from it those passages which had given rise to controversy and contention In the church, and to so frame the work as to make It acceptable to Christians of all denominations who desired a litargy. This work, alter much consultation and labor, has just tieen completed and published. The vestry and congregation of Emanuel Church, New Y'ork city determined to adopt It; and last Sunday being agreed upon as the date of the ehunge, the rector of the church, before commencing the morning service, explained that It had ninny been his principle, while counected with any organization, to yield obedience to Its laws, and that, consequently, although the wishes of the vestry and congregation exactly coincided with his own, and although the new ritual appeared to him tn every way scriptural and right, he hart felt it his duty before adopting It to withdraw from the Old Communion, In which no such change of liturgy would lie legal. He had therefore addressed n tetter to the Bishop of the diocese, resigning his position as a Presbyter of the Protestant Episcopal Church, and requested hini to erase his name from the list of clergymen under his charge. At the close of the rector's statement the services were proceeded with according to the revised ritual, the congregation apiieaiing greatly pleased with the changes made in the old form, suit responding with great heartiness. It is stated that a large number of influential clergymen have Indorsed the new prayer hook, as tending to bring Christian people of different names more closely together, and it is likely that lhe example or the rector and congregation of Emanuel Church will in time be widely followed. .Mr. Sliollr Itrbukrd. In nn age when snobbery and siioddyism have it pr ttv much their own way in "society," it Is extremely refreshing to untie across an instauce like this. A number of young ladies, school teachers of New York city, who had been spending their vacation at a seaside hotel on Long Island, were in the habit of participating in the parlor -heps," which of course constituted an Important feature of the eve-nUig's diversion. A recent fashionable arrival in the person of a lady who was wealthy enough to buy out the whole establishment, however, caused a change in the programme. The lady objected to association with school teat hers, and the latter were requested to refrain from joining in the dance ; and like sensible young ladies they are, served their own dignity by refusing to enter into a controversy with the lady of "many stamps." But tin- circumstance corning to rhe knowledge of the landlord, he laid the subject before a lady guest 01 superior inn-Uuence and hih position, who spcedi'y reversed h,- ortaroJ the dancing parties, and the name of the la ly whn ' bjM t s m lhe society of sch"; IBM hers lias been dropped from lhe roll of the fair revelers who as--seuibje ar the parlor "hops" in that hotel.

This hope seems in a fair way of realization. We observe that a H Refrigerator CM Company" has t-en orguuized and is in Hi ful operation in St. Louis, having for its object tfu- h apt-mug of fresh beef in that and oth Bff citt-s. The beat proof of the perfect adapttntiity of the car to ttie sen ice in which they are employed Is afforded In the fact that th-y bring beeves frOOla distance of several hundred miles, and put tht tn upon the market at a greatly Ndsettd pffe, ft with flesh as fresh and firm as any that comes direct from the slaughter of the city butchers. Another advantage is that while the cars, if devoted to th? carriage of live stock, wonld bring to the market at iest only eighteen head, thus employed In carrying only the marketable produce, will brin.-thirty dead, reducing the freightage upon the net beef nearly ont-half. Not only so, but as the beeves are killed frese from the grass, the product is not feverish, 1 an and tough as that from cattle driven or brought by rail. We understand that the company proposes 10 extend it sphere of operations, atnj ultimately to ship their beet rresh from Texas pastures through to Cincinnati, New York, Philadelphia, our own city and oilier places, a benefit to be appreciat'-.l b$ housekeepers who are coiiipeiled to puy the same for beefsteaks now as when beeves were worth ih on foot.

It is due from the editor and publishers of that magazine that they explain its appearance, otherwise the inference will be that they conduct the publication on principles wholly foreign to the standard set up. A repetition of the adver- tibement should cause ttie magazine to be banished irom respedable families.

A cob res ti n dent, taking time by the forelock, writes to aay that, M inasmuch as General Sweltzer was generally conceded to be the fittest caudidate for Mayor In the late canvass, and that the worst thing that could be said against him was that he 'came out too late,' his friends wish it to be understood now that he will be a candidate next time." The r iter points to the vote of General Kweltzer to prove that his capital is abundant to begin with. Discoveries of the greatest interest have been made recently at the Hathh of ( aracatia In Rome. A chamber has been excavated with the marble oaslns still in their places, and a fountain in the center, in which it is proposed to convey the Acqua Marcia. Near the Pantheon, part of the ancient aqueduct that used to convey the Acoua Vergme to the Baths of Agrippa has come to light, and some great discovery Il expected near the Forum.

Preparations on an extensive scale are now making tn New York for the grand demonstration of the workingmen, week after next, tn favor of the eight-hour law principle. All the Trade Unions will turn out on the occasion, and two speakers will be invited from each of these organizations. Mr, Arthur Cur-ran, of the stone Cutters, has been appointed to act as Grand Marshal, and Mr. William J. .lessup Chairman or the meeting to be held in the evening at the Cooper Institute. Horace Greeley will be one of the orators, and possibly Wendell Phillips. From present indications, it is saTe to say, the demonstration will be the most imposing of its kind ever witnessed in New York. It Is stated by the Vrrite newspaper that for some time pat a large number of priests m Pans have allowed their In-ards to grow; the annoyance to which they were subjected during the Commune having, it ts supposed, led to this innovation.

THE ATLANTIC AND GREAT WESTERN ROAD. .From the Clv(dnd Herald. 1 At noon or Friday, September I, the Atlantic and Great Western Railway, with all the property connected with that organization, was formally transferred by the receiver to the trustees under the reorganization of the company. The transfer took place at Akron, and on Its completion, the three trustees. General McClellan, Judge Thar man, of Ohio, and Mr. New York, took possession of the railroad and all its appurtenances in behalf a the newly organized Atlantic aud Great Western Railroad Company. The new organtzat 9i com; rises all the variousf classes of bondholders, witti the exception of a portion of the tKmds held In Holland, and so many of the stockholders as signed the agreement and consented to the scaling down of their stock. It Is believed that by far the greater portion of the stockholders have come into the arrangement. There Is no oppsitlon to the scheme on the part of the bond and stockholders who nave not come Into the arrangement, they merely hfSffsflUtff tn take their rbances outside of the arrangement. Th- Dutch ix,i,ohoiiers have ttccn paid tnetr overdue Interest, and are now working in harmony with the new organization. The ateeltttottfara who stand outdo so bpcaaae they think the Investment Ih good, aud that after the tsnds have all been provided for there will be more value left in the common stock than ts allowed ror it now in scaling down for the new organization. 'i he trustees who now have temporary control of the pre pert j, during the perfectment of" the re organization, will probably surrender their trust within thirty days to the company, when General Mc,-LleUan will income tta President. Of the other details ol organization It would lw premature to apeak as yet, other than to say the arrangements are such as wm guarantee the efficient, economical, and UwrOHgluj satisfactory working of the line to the beat interests of the proprietors aud the public. The future policy Of thecompanv Is to be a wise lltnjr-Hhty In furnishing fa -ilitles for the prompt and Rat iwtnctory dtapatoS of all the huwineas offered the n nn, i.o ruaiiT now great mat may n, and especially for the rostering Of the local interests along the line. All arrangements with the Erie Railroad Companv ceased at noon ou Friday, and the two lines are now merely connecting roads. This, however, wii! work no inconvenience to the traveling or business pubiie. Via will have ihe same facilities as before, to say the leasi. Important GtaSflNM are in eontem -platlon, and will be commenced at once, the object of which Is lo make the Atlantic and Great Western independent of the Erie, whilst maintaining friendly n ;;in"Tis with it. A few of these changes we can iiidit ate, others in contemplation It is not yet proper to announce. The hrat step, to tie taken immediately, is the laving a double track (narrow gauge) with steel rails, on the Cleveland Branch (Cleveland and Mahoning.) This is rendered necessary by the Immonae business, local and through, pouring over the line he-twfn i-avutshurg ond Cleveland. At the asm a utne the roiling stock will be enormously Increase J ao bat the business offered the line, now very largely in excess of its capacity, can he promptly and satisfactorily done. 1 to rstlf taken up fr m the Cleveland branch will U s-d towards laying a third rail frawi Lea v it-tabu rg eastward, so that Mima, gaiiwa nia oan pass over the main line east of Leavltuoanr Arrangements have already teen perfects! with the Philadelphia and Kne Railroad, bv which narrow-gauge t raffle between Cieveiand and the Atlantic cities can paa over tee Atlantic and Great Western to Corry. and thence over the Philadelphia and Erie and lis naaMAa itnea fVmiii ttkmi will tie made with the New Y(rk Centra! also, either over ttie Buffalo divtslou of the Atlantic and Great Western, which in that case will bar or t 'eterl w ithout delay, or over another hoe in a urse ut construction.

BOTTI.KU VP. !From the Wahtngtnn SUr.J The Pciiiisylvania Railroad Interest seems to have driven another nsti in the coln of the Baltimore and ohm company. As the former combination virtually controls the lines between Baltimore and Philadelphia and New York, it uow refuses to carry bet we n these poiuts the freight brought to Baltimore by the Balt'iuore and Ohio tine from pMKta in the west which are reached lu common by the connections o! the Pennsylvania and the Baltimore and Ohio roads. The result is that New York and Phil-iMhiphta ft eights t insight by the t'entral tihio branch i l the Ba'timore and t dno road to the tmlo river, t ot-1 ad ol tietng brought in bulk across the hp lend id new bridge at P-ellatr, and ao over the main stem of ihe line, have to take the Clove laud aud Pittsburgh toad at that place, and reach their destination Wm Pitlf-burgh and llurrtf burg.

There was recently filed at the Secretary of State s office, Columbus, the certificate of incorporation of The Valley Railway Company,"' with the northern terminus at Cleveland, and the southern at Bowers-town, In Monroe township, Harrison county, the road to pass through the Intermediate eouuties of Cuyahoga, Summit, Stark, Tuscarawas, and Carroll, captai stock f3,iHMt.noo. The corporators are Beary ChiahOtm, N. P. Payne, James Parmer, Warrick Price, and Samuel A. Fuller, of Cleveland, and David L. King, or AJETOCL A NEW KAI1.KOAD CENTER. Mr. C. P. Huntington, ice President of the Cen tral Pacific Railroad, has returned from Caiiforn a after a visit of several months, and says that important railway combinations were effected daring his absence, of which some announcement has already been made, and it la probable that further in formation will be attainable by and by. Mr. Huntington Is also largely Interested In the building of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad, the western rer-mlnuHOf which Is the new town of Huntington ou the Otiio river. Tills town is already an important railroad center, several lines having this for a focal point, A large number of British capitalists have bought extensive tracts of iron and coal lands through the region traversed by i In i fhtiaannafrfi and Ohio Railroad, and they have in view plans which involve the expenditure of over a million dollars along the roa t. These gentlemen are making application to the railroad conioany for ttie establishment of a tariff of freight on coal and iron, to tie fixed unchangeably for ten years. It is naturally expected that the lineral policy of the company, which is to induce the Investment of capital along the line of the road, will make fair concessions to the applicants. A leading iron manufacturer in l'eunsylvania has also made propositions looking to the establishment of iron works at Huntington. It is expected that this new railroad center, which is adiidrably situated in the midst of one of the richest iron and coal districts of the country, will soon become one of the leading manufacturing cities or Pennsylvania, BALTIMORE, NEW CASTLE AND FRANKLIN. The New Castle JiAtrnal of the 1st blatant, says: Baltimore, New Castle and Franklin railroad matters are progressing slowly but satisfactorily. On Monday last the subscription footed up $149,000, and by a private report of a meeting at Mercer, we are informed that a paper was started last week with SS6,09C, and that the heaviest interests were not represented. Everything looks propitious for an early beginning ol the road. ANOTHER LINK. The Pennsylvania Railroad Company have acquired half the capital stock of the new Pennsylvania and Delaware Railroad (Pomeroy to Landen-burg, and have guaranteed the payment of theinterest on the llrst mortgage bonds. Mr. Martin linden berger, of Philadelphia, has been appointed trustee or assignee of the old corporation, and al! its assets are to be placed in his hands. Under the new arrangement the construction of the road will lie rapidly pushed forward, and it is expected that it will be completed by the first ol February. The Pennsylvania Company will then operate the road, paying over to the Pennsvlvania and Delaware Company ail the excess over actual expenses. IN BKIEF. We learn from the Greensburg Hermit that the engineera have completed the location Of the Southwest Pennsylvania Rail way. The various proposed routes along and adjacent tn the understood direct route, have had a thorough, practical examination; nnd to satisfy all parties interested, and the Company, accurate locations or the line have been made of all the different divergent portions, to determine the relative cost of each. A meeting of the directors was held on the 29th ult., when maps, profiles and estimates for the entire line were submitted, but have not yet been made public. A project has been started for building a road from Philadelphia to Newtown, Bucks county. The whole of the route is through a rich agricultural region, thickly settled, and through villages at short distances. Several streams are crossed, possessing a vast amount of power for manufacturlm? purposes. There appear to be no insurmountable engineering difficulties on the route, and the road could be built quite as cheap as in any direction in the State out of Philadelphia. We learn that the pnipositton is that ir the citizens on the line or the road will raise fluty,. 000 in stock subscriptions the road will be built, the remainder of the cost to be raised in Philadelphia. No instalment or the subscription is required until the road is surveyed, put under contract, and the work actuallv commenced. Therefore Newtown has one more'ehance ror a rai iroad, and we trust this time we shall not be disappointed. The Miramar Railroad, between Shtppenshurg and Meehanicshurg, has been put under contract, and it is said the work of building the road will commence at once, A force of hands will commence simultaneously at both ends Meehanicshurg and Shippensburg. The road Is to be put in running 0g-$erat HMOi per mile, and completed in eighteen months. A meeting of the Farmers' ami Miners' Railroad Company was held in Franklin a few days ago to elect officers. Thecompanv have a charter to build a railroad from Franklin, through Butler county to some point in Allegheny county. COUNTY POLITICS.

In St. Petersburg" the cases are considerably diminish e-1. since the downfall of the French empire a great many predictions, ancient and modern, relating to that event, have neeti unearthed, the fulfilment or w hich Would seem to have ieen accomplished by re--cent ocr urreneea. Having printed a number or these, we now publish the latest, which turns out to he by Carlyie, and which is certainly not less re-mat kaWe for clearness of insight than the most pro phetlc of its predecessors. A writer ia the Opinion Xationale mentions that after 1S4S M. Emile Monte-gat, a well known translator and author, wrote to Carlvle. a translation of whose -'French Revolution' he had undertaken to make, for advice as to his conduct iu political life, which M. Monte-gat had just then entered. Mr. Carlyie, the writer goes on to say, replied iu the sense Of the following words: "The men whom the revolution has placed at the head of affairs iu your country have scarcely the political skill needed tor so difficult a situation. The republic is not yet rata nttotiort in men s minds, especially not in the rural :istiH ts; and I doubiif the present Government will be able to maintain itself. There is uow here, in Loudon, a man oi whom no one in your land thinka, and who will, nevertheless, infallibly attaiu to power ere long; I refer to Prince Louis Uona parte. If the men of February Bucceed in surrounding him, and In forcing him to advance at the head off the Republican partv. the republic will eu dure ; else she w 111 inevitably wink, and you wilt have the empire." These prophetic lines were written in March, t8ff& We occasionally hear off children which in the estimation of their parents are too good to live; an opinion to the conception of hard sense that presupposes something supernatural, or good-tor-nothingness, which doting parents mistake for something of the heavenly sort. So of cities, we conclude, if we may inter anything from the following from the Philadelphia Inquirer: "The tone of Philadelphia is essentially a moral one. We live quieter, better lives than those of the surrounding large cities', and it there, is less dissipation in our pursuits there is more genuine happiuess round in them. Youth, however closely guarded from evil, will dud them out if they are ali about, tempting them at every step and set before them by the majority. Laxity of morals in a city will Impart Itself to ali breathing Us atmosphere. The old Quaker leaven of simple living still works in Philadelphia for good. Parents long ago discovered that they might Barely entrust their children to the care of our schools, in the lull knowledge that not only their minds would receive development, but that their best instincts would be carefully educated." The Springfield BfpvDHeem says: "It now seems probable, not only that the greater part of the $S0,-000,000 bonds at six per cent, coming under Mr. l.outwell's published notice, and held abroad, will be exchanged directly for the new five per cents, but that a market can soon be found for another huudred millions or more of our four and a-half and live per cents, on tne other side of the oceau, and lor an equal amuant here. Nor would it be surprising If, before the first of January, all the five per cents, except $,oou, and $20o,ooo,isio of the four and a-half per cents, should thus have been taken up; in all, more than a third part of the whole refunding loan of $1,500,00,000. Thts would be a brilliant success for our persistent Secretarv, and w ould reduce the yearly interest by $7, 000,000." New Yohk has a report that Captain Jake Vander-btlt Is contriving to evade all prosecution for the Westfield calamity under an obsolete law which forbids the people traveling on Sunday. He will, it is so reported, contend through his lawyer, that as the victims were violating this enactment, they should not be allowed to collect damaged. The statement that Mark Twain had purchased a house and was going to take up his residence in Hartford, Coun., is contradicted. EVROPE.

A correspondent of a London paper, writing from She rase under date of June 23, says: The famine in Persia may now be said to have almost oosae to an end. but the distress caused by it will continue for a yet long time. The price off bread has fallen considerably, but all property of the pwrer classes, excepting only the most necessary ciothes, has long siuce been sold or exchanged for bread, and it is but too evident that starvation will be the fate of a great many more. On the road from RoSfeffre to Sherase, one can see at many places half interred bodies. At a earraansary about thirty miles from Sherase, many people, it is stated nro hundred, died of starvation in about a week. Kaseroon, a town eighty miles from Sherase, Is half depopulated. Many or its inhabitants went to Sberaae. Ilushrie or other large towns, and great numbers died. On all the roads and highways crowds of beggars in the last stages of destitution waylay travelers. Sanguinary lights, often resulting in loss of life, take place over the carcases of mules, donkeys or horses which have died on the roa 1, and robberies with violence are very rreqnent. At Vezd and Gland Herman the famine raged more than anv where else. In a letter dated at read ou April last, it was stated that corpses had been resorted to for rood, and eight out of twelve cases of children having been killed and devoured by their parents were enumerated.

An Engli-thnian'a View of French Affairs Thier- Bold .Move in the Assembly. The Paris correspondent of the London T'UgrapK, under date of August Sh, says: We had yesterday by far the most exciting scene in the Assembly that I have w itnessed since the deputies met In February last. The question was the dissolution of the National Guard. M. de Meaux made an excellent and practical speech, very conciliatory, but not sparing the plain truth when it had to be told. After Vicomte de Meaux rose, Thiers, never before, ia my opinion appeared at such an immense disadvantage. From the very first he went dead against a majority of certainly two-thirds of the Chamber, and almost without .'deigning to offer any argument in favor of his own views, he stated broadlv that the Executive alone was the judge as to when, or how, or where, or in what measure the National Guard should le disarmed. He was at first almost hooted down, and retorted bv telling the Rijrht, Right Center and Left Center that if thev did not respect themselves, thev ought to respect the man whom they had placed as chier of the executive department. This deplorable exhibition ended by a curt declaration on the part, of Thiers that if the As-semblv did not on his question vote as he wished, he would at once resign his position. That a man of of TTier's parliamentary experience would even dare to transgress in such a wav the first rules or constitutional government seems alike incredible and incromprehensible. If the ft Him hi j could have tamelv taken sucn a flog ging, and, like so many naughty children, sumnitted to be put in a corner, and that upon a measure on which I deliberately assert all Frenchmen except those who look to revolution as the future pameea for French troubles, are of one mind, then adieu to all ideas of parliamentary or constitutional government in France.

Au impartial looker-on at passme event's in France must, I fear, come to oulv one conclusion respecting the present state of affairs; that the statesmen of this land have somehow got to be what we call "soft," and the French term wa There exists among all classes a deplorable want cf moral energy.

Similar reports were made trom Switzerland, and some parts or France. A letter from Berlin, dated August 1 7th. says the main point of the dispute which caused the sas- pension ot negotiations at Frankfort, between France and Germany, for settling the details connected with the restoration of peace and the gradual evacuation of France by the German troops, was the refusal of the French to assist the German government In attempting to avoid a commercial clash in Aisace. by consenting to admit the produce of ner former subjects Into France fn-e of duty, for a year or so after the 1st of September. In return for such favor Bismarck offered tbe withdrawal of the German forces from the Parisian forts and the whole French soil, Champaign excepted, even before the whole $300,000,000 were paid as provided in the treaty. The latter says the French brought forward demands atter demands, oot never consented to any favor asked in return. No choice was left to the German Government in theinterest of the safety of the country, but rigorously to insist npon the righta reserved to Germany in the treat v of Frankfort. "THE ONE TEEM PRINCIPLE." Horace Greeley's Article on the Galaxy for November. New York, September 6, 1STL Horace Greeley will open the Presidential campaign with an article In the forthcoming November Galaxy nn The One Term Principle. The following summary is made from advance sheets: Starting with the idea that civu aerrice reform ia essential and demanded by ail thoughtful citizens, Mr. Greeley contends that the desire and hope or the President to secure re-election, and his eiTorts to that end, effectually prevent the reform. Civil service reform means the selection of the fittest men for office, instead of the most effective (or noisy) politicians of the dominant party. Tne fruits of the present system are wlibgaead incapacity, lneiS- i iency, u-bhonesty aiiopee.jlation A postmaster not to be too exacting ought to know how to read, which some do, while others do not. All will admit that such ability is desirable in his vocation, but if one who lacks it is the most efficient partisan, and has done the most toward the President's election, his "claims' cannot well be over borne. Will not hts services ts wanted four years hence 7 And how are they to be retained if his "claims" are postponed to those of one who can read, but has no skill in manipulating voters or votes ? Mr. Greeley asks, "how much better Is this than the absurdity of hereditary Legislators? If our Federal and 'local functionaries were ctesen bv lot. would ihey average worse than they now' do? That the King can do no wrong, '11 taken literally, .s irrational ; it understood to mean only that he ta elevated above ail temptation to misrule; that hia doing wrong would argue Ntorai. if not mental Insanitythat he cannot le awWMon to have acted within his prerogative under the sway of any unworthy motive, then ttie maxirn becomes intelligible. The justification or royalty is its alleged tendency to place the chief ruler of a nation above ail temptatloa to regard ana pursue his own interest at the expense of the public weaL" Mr. Greeley then discusses the question historically the growth or the patronage of the President; the efforts to rest net the President to one term by Constitutional amendments; the selfish reasons for the defeat of these latter, and the rapid accumulation of evils growing out of the power of patrouage, and the temptation of the President to use that patronage for Ids re-election. Mr. Greeley conclude his historical argument thus: "The Whigs in due time took up the one-terra principle, and Mr. Clay gave It his powerful support. He la: ed to achieve the Presidency, aud did not succeed m engrafting that principle into the Federal Constitution ; but Van Huren, who was first chosen in 3S3G bj a decided majority, was left in a mearer minority at the close of the canvass for a seco;idT term. He tried again in 1S44. and was badiy beaten in the National Convention or his pirry by James K. Polk, of Tennessee, who, though then elected, declined even to seek a second terra. General Tayior, who succeeded him. died early tn the 'second year of his term; and Millard Fillmore, who, being Vice-President, succeeded trim, was beaten by General Scott In the Whig National Convention or MBS. General Franklin Pierce, whom tbe iH-mocrsts then elected, tried to be renominated in but was beaten in Convention by James Buchanan, who did awtseek a reaomination, knowing well that such quest would be vain. "Mr. Lincoln, who was then chosen by the Republicans, was re-elected by them in 1864; the civil war was ihen m progress, impelling many to support htm lu cefereuoe to the law that discourages lhe "swap-omg oi horses," while in the act or crossing a raging t rrvnL Mr. Lincoln thus constitutes the sole exception to the failure of so many efforts to re-elect a President since l-vt2. Meanwhile, these efforts have undoubtedly c st Some signal defeats to either partv. Had Mr. Van Bares gracefully retired at rhe close of his first tern?, his party might, very possibly, have avoided their stunning defeat in 140: hail Fillmore done likewise in f8Da- the Whig party might have been de-teated, out could not have been crushed by Its defeat m the triumph of Pierce that year. Time and again, since the Federal disaster of isoa, lias first one and then the other party, run or tried to run a President for a second term ;" lor a quarter of a century these enorts proved successful; off late they have very generally proved disastrous. 'Can ye not discern the signs of the times?' That the change has been real and based neither upon personal nor partisan considerations, is evinced by the gradual adoption of the contested principle in other, yet kindred spheres. Witness the post of Governorwhich was formerly filled in near.y or qcite every State without restriction on this head, whereas ac this time m the States of New Jersey, Virginia. Georgia. Indiana, Illinois. South Carolina ami Kentucky a Governor is not elgibie to re-elec-ttOB while in office or for the term succeeding that for which he was elected; in Arkansas, Texas and Oregon be may serve hut eight years out or aay twelve: in Maine, North Carolina, Alabama and Mississippi hemav serve but (our years out ol any six; iu Pennsylvania six years out "of any nine; la Tennessee six years out of any eight. The intent tn each case ; however imperfectly developed) is to check. If not overbear, the tendency to use patronage tor rhe indefinite perpetuation of power." Mr. Greeley concludes ny saying: "All that Is needed is an intelligent, earnest, wide-spread conviction that the practice of re-electing a chief magistrate while iu office ia fraught with evil and peril; that it distracts his attention from the proper carea and duties of hia station, and impetls him to con-eider, not wr!o are fittest and most worthy to fill the nttott in his gift, but what choice will be most likely to improve his chances of renominatioo. We shall yet achieve a civil service reform. Nay, we moot Office seeking ta our national vice, depriving onr workshops of apprentices and our farms of half the Intelligent, energetic, aspiring youth, who ought to make our agriculture of the next thirty years exhibit a series of brilliant advances and "improvements upon ail that preceded it Hut vainly shall we hope for such reform throaga the Joppinc off of branches, while the root or the upas remains intact and vitaL That root Is the re-cleetien while in office of Presidents. Governors and "thcr dispensers of vast patronage, with their consequent temptation to use that patronage in aid of thesr own continuance in power." A Remarkable Trotting Feat. MiLwrkEE, September 6. The race at Cold Springs this afternoon, between Goldsmith Maid and Lucy, w as one of the most remarkable ia trot-ing annals. Goldsmith Maid making the fastest single heat, aud also the best three heats on record. The race was witnessed by about 4,000 people, who were fairly carried away with excitement.

The actual time or the heat was 2:i6, but as the watches of the judges didn't agree, one making 2 :!;.:, another 2:ifi4,and the third 2:17, the lasi was adopted in order to dlsne. any doubts which might result from the complication. 4 Third h atThe horses got off on the sacoad start, passing the judges stand abreast.
