6 THE VIENNA EXPOSITION, ilto Extortions of tho Blotol-ICoopors— t *li« Swiss Bopurtmunt. j Vienna (Jfay 13) Correspondence of the tfcio York , War has been again declared upon tho hotel-keepers, Tho comidaints of extortion during tho week otter tho opening became so numerous as to demand luvoatlga* tfon. On Saturday tho Mayor of tho city, tho Chief of , Police, tho Vlco-rrcsidcul of (ho Commission, and aomo other dignitaries mot In conference, and) after aomo discussion, resolved upon tho following course: To call upon tho hotel-keepers for a complete state- i tnonl of rooms and prices; If tho prices scorn too high i to bring a strong moral pressure to boar In tho hopo of \ a reduction. Should that fall, to have lists printed— I first of tho moderate, second of tho extortionate i hotels —and causo such lists to bo distributed • it tho statious uud at tho landing-places I •upon tho arrival of every train ond boat, 1 Tho secret of such energetic action Is to bo nought lu 1 tho circumstance that tbo management of tho Exhlbl- < lion Is Loginning to fear for its financial success. Tho dally attendance Is not ono-fourth of what it was rrigtnaUy expected. Evidently It is in tho Interests 1 af tho Exhibition not only to cffaco from tho charoctor 5f tho city tho imputation of extortion, but to mako i cojouru easy and cheap. Tho lower the prices tho {renter tho number of visitors, and vice versa. But >no thing Is operating far more effectually than com* .xUttcos and printed tariffs in beating down prices, i and that Is tho simple circumstance that Visitors aro unquestionably holding off. For a day or two before mm after tbo ' opening tho hotels did a flourishing business, and charged pretty much what lliuy saw fit. For over a week, however, their affairs have i ■ dragged tioroly. Everybody who could get away loft < Vicuna as coon as tho opening was over, Thoro aro now hundreds of rooms in tho principal hotels lying Idle. Besides the hotels there wero at. tho ond of last < week, according to official statement, a,093 apartments, < or 4,7tt5 furnished rooms unoccupied, to say nothing of tho so-called "sleeping places.” In tho Leopold- 1 etadt alone, that district of the city which adjoins tho 1 Prater, amt is consequently most convenient to all 1 having business with tho exhibition, out of C2B apart- • snouts only 143 had been let. Landlords bare simply 1 spoiled their own game. They seemed to think at ono 1 time that all Lqndon, Paris, Now York, and St, Peters- ' burg wero to precipitate Itself at once upon their city, 1 and that orcry ono who camo wero bound to atoy five 1 or six mouths. Their calculations have been put to 1 tho most inglorious shamo. Many exhibitors, after 1 seeing their goods property sot up, bavo loft them in 1 charge of a Vienna agent and departed for homo. 1 Other* will follow their example. As to mere tourism, every ono that can read or think has learned long ago, through tho proas, that tho exhibition Is in a back ward stale, and that tho flight-seeing cannot possibly . begin before tho Ist or tho 10th of Juno. Tho weather also la detestable, Tho reporters for tho press bavo acted with more than their wonted zeal. Many i havo remonstrated hero on tho spot, to my certain | knowledge, tolling landlords to their faces that their . camo of extortion would be stopped, aud all havo | written home la tho plainest terms. Tho landlords 1 uro beginning to bo moved, unquestionably. If tho i present dearth of lodgers continues a fortnight longer, j there will bo a tumble In routs similar to the fall on 1 tho Block Exchange, aud tho Viennese will discover J that they cannot mako their lasting fortunes lu u sum- 1 mcr by lotting rooms. I must not omit to do Justice i to tho Vicuna press. It has boon foremost lu donuu- i elution. It has told tho trutli all times and to all men. < Tho only department complete la tho Bwlss, I havo ' Bpont tho greater part of my time In examining it ' carefully, and tho closer my examination tho Greater has been my satisfaction. Tbo Bwlss have done their beat, and bavo succeeded In giving a remarkably full presentation of their national In- ' duslry. They occupy tho whole of ono transept, and also tho apaco In between It and tho adjoining transept. As you cuter tho Swiss transept from tho' central arch, you find tho first compartment filled with a templing array of silk In every Btago, from tho coccoon to tho finished piece. In tho very centre stands a show-case of mineral salts, used In dyeing. Surrounding this aro four eases of dress goods, exhib iting great variety of color and pattern, and grouped with tho utmost taste. Along tho walls aro coccoous, silk-floes, spool-silk, ribbons, brocades, and more dross goods. Tho general effect of tho compartment la ono of brilliancy, toned down by good tosto. Com partnrcnt’No. 3 la devoted to laces, embroidery, bed ond window curtains, and laco handkerchiefs. In tho middle, a full display of pianos. Although tho Swiss loco In general can scarcely compare with tho Belgian, Bomo of tho macbJuo-mauo laco from Bt. Gall Is ex tremely dcllcuto and rich lu pattern. Compart ment No. 8 contains a lavish exhibition of watebes, chronometers, mathematical Instruments, physical instruments, electrical clocks, machinery used lu watch-making, aud other dollcato apparatus. Compartment No. 4 contains tho exhibition of straws, oboes, cotton, ami woolen yarns. I examined several coses of tho 80-called crepe do saute, a now variety of ■underclothing. It Is made either of Bilk, or all wool, or mixed. It Is woven in a sort of nct-atltch ribbed, and Is very clastic, fitting close to tbe body, and yet constantly producing a gentle friction. Compartment No. 6ls filled with cheap cotton and muahn prints, with their Inevitable dull hues and hideous patterns. Why is it that cheap prints should always bo so ugly, when a trlllo more of Ingenuity In designing might produce something no more expensive and far more esthetic? Tbo additional space outside tbe trannopt Is in two parts. Tbo first consists of a gallery running along tho transept. This is devoted to tho exhibition of Swiss printing and cartography (some of tho maps aro Buporbly executed), cooking apparatus, artillery and Bldo-arms, trunks, and leather goods. I observed In this gallery nothing very original or very superior in ‘workmanship. On the other hand, there was nothing poor or fllorouly. Tho second part of the additional space consists of a detached building, a largo Swiss chalet two stories high. Tho lower story, in four rooms, is niled with specimens of wood carvings. Hero again I saw noth ing now. Thoro wero tho conventional chamois and deer In every possible attitude and size, tho hunters on tho stand, tho big and Uttlo carved clocks and flow er-stands, chairs toonlco to sit upon. We all know what Swiss carving Is. Tho present exhibition Is no worse and no better than what wo can boo anywhere else, and will not compare In originality and finish with thd Inlaid work from Austria and Franco. Tho second Btory of tho chalet contains tho exhibition for Swiss pedagogy. There was a fair show of school-books, physical apparatus, maps, school-work. etc. What Impressed mo more pleasingly than anything else was tho collection of aids lu teaching geology. Besides tho usual colored maps (hero were relief main of various materials—wood, plaster, and pasto-board, each layer colored separately and cut away so as to exhibit tho conformation of the ground. Thoro was, in particular, a glass map of tho vicinity of tho Bozberg tunnel. That is to say, tbo map consisted of a row of detached upright plates of glass a quarter of an inch apart. Each plate was ap propriately colored and doited. By looking through tho row from end to ond ono could got a picture of the general configuration of the district, and by looking own in between any two slips one could see tho geolog ical strata at that particular spot. Aside from tbo Swiss exhibition proper, there is an other building that I visited with much interest. I mean tho private exhibition of Usher, in Bern The building of Mr. Holler is located back of the Swiss res taurant, across tho railroad track.ond in a hue with the end of tho Swiss transept, Mr. Holler hoe a world wide reputation as maker of musical boxes. In gen oral I must confess that musical boxes are not to my fancy. But then there is a difference among them, aud certainly some of Mr. Heller’s ore very sweet lu tone, and some of tbo Uttlo artificial birds that spring out of them sing almost as well as If they wero olive. But tho most Interesting object in tho collection Is tbo orchestrion. This monster musical box, for it is sub stantially that, is 80 feet broad by 20 high, arranged with violin and clarinet pipes, drums, bass viols, aud all tbo other musical aparatus of an orchestra of forty performers. I heard it play an air from tho " Prophet,” and can bear witness to tho precision and richness of the music. Tho volume of sound, however, I should not rate as high as that of forty performers. 1 learned that three workmen were engaged eleven mouths in making the cylinders aud adjusting the parts. Summing up tho exhibition from Switzerland I must nut omit to mention my surprise at seeing no show of Jewelry, of which ono sees so much in Genova, for instance. Aud in general, that branch of Industry which is commonly associated with tho name of Switz erland—that Is watch-making—ls by no means tho most striking feature of tho exhibition. Tho Swiss watches hold their own, hut no more; whereas the display of silks uud cottons is striking, it shows whut changes tho country is undergoing, and how much its system of free trade is doing In tho way of building up an linmeneo industry. Switzerland, with peculiar nat ural disadvantages to overcome, Is running England, France, Germany, uud Belgium very closely in their specialties. A Uurglor’s Fatal Jump TlirougU a Su.mli* From the Detroit Free Press. Shortly before Li o’clock yesterday afternoon a wealthy resident of Windsor, named Thomas Perkins, a Government officer, left bis bouse to accompany bis wife and daughter to tbo circus. Ho bad boon at tbo tent but a short time when a neighbor came lu and Informed him that she bud seen two strange men lurking lu bis garden, lu leaving tbo bouuo Mr. Perkins bad observed two suspicious characters on the walk, near his place, and, though ho gave them no attention at thu time, he had reason, after tbo neighbor’s statement, to believe that tbo fellows bud entered bis bouse. 110 therefore hurried homo, and bud bis latch-key ready when bo reached tbo door. Ah bo opened It and stood lu tbo ball, bo caught sight of a man in tbo parlor bedroom to tbo loft, and beard auotbor lu thu parlor to the right! He entered the bedroom, and was confronted by tbo thief, who bad been rumoglug a dressing-case. Mr. Per kins Is well along In years, but a stout, hearty man, and though without weapons bo unhesitatingly mode for tbo thief and struck him two or throe heavy blows. Tbo rascal cither meant to leap through tbo window to tho veranda, or else tbo last blow knocked him through ouo of tbo large panes. As bo was half wav through Mr. Pcrkius caught him by tbo leg aud held him across tbo sash with Its broken glass 'nu ll! bis grasp was kicked loose. Tbo thief then bounded off tbo veranda, over tbo fence, and running about half a block turned Into a lot, run across that, pulled an old wagon away from an opening near a barn, aud ran to a spot directly back of tbo bouse and fell down. Mr. Perkins bud been pursuing him all tbo way, and ns the fellow fell bo was rapped over tbo bead with tbo gentleman’s cone. Uo cried out:. “Don’t strike mo— I’m dead now 1” and Mr. Pcrkius saw that bo bad boon terribly wounded aud was dying. Three or four poi sons came up aud tbo thief gave bis name, said bo was sorry on bis mother’s account, and bo was dead in tbroo or four minutes. The glass In tho window had been broken down to with in an Inch of tho lower sash, and tho rem nant left there was the causo of bis death. Ills leg was drawn down hard upon tho Jagged fragment by Air. Perkins' grasp, and hla struggles severed tho femoral artery Just above tbo kueo, producing a most horrible wound. As ho rose to Ids foot on tbo veranda the blood spurted fully four feet agalust tbo bouse, and tbo shrubbery, fence, grass, and everything bo fiasßOd over in bis flight was bespattered. Where be oil aud died the blood bad gurgled out and made a great stain on tbo grass. Ho gave bis namoasjobu anly, and slated that bo was from Danville, On tario. Mr, Perkins bad paid no attention to tho other thief, who escaped through the back way and fled across the commons to tbo woods, being out of sight before any one gave chase or had a good description of him. Hanly wan a young man of 20 or thereabouts, smooth face, brown hair, ami dressed in plain, heavy clot lion, the worse for wear, though ho had on a flqo while ahlrt ami gold buttons in It. Ills hands boro evi dence of Imr having boon n laborer. That both men wero common thieves and not professional burglars was evident in Itielr work. JOHN STUART MILL. Wlmt Herbert Spencer Snyn of IBiim _ .... From the London Fxaminer, Todllaloupon Mr. Mill’s achievements, and to In sist upon tho wideness of his Influence over the thought of bin time, and consequently over the no tions of his time, scums to mo scarcely needful. Tho facts aro sufficiently obvious, and aro recognized by all who know anything about tho progress of opinion during tho last half century. My own estimate of him, lutollootualty considered, has boon emphatically, though briefly, given on an occasion of controversy between us, by expressing my regret at "having to contend against tho doctrine of ouo whoso agreement 1 should value more than that of any other thinker.” While, however. It Is almoct superfluous to assert of him that Intellectual height so generally admitted, thoro Is more occasion for drawing attention to a moral olovnllon that Is less recognized, partly because his activities, in many directions, afforded no occasion for exhibiting It, and partly Locaumo some of It most remarkable manifestations In conduct are known only to those whoso personal relations with him have called them forth. I fool especially prompted to say something on this point because where hotter things might havo boon expected thoro has-boon not only a grudging recognition of Intellectu al rank, but a marked blindness to those fine traits of character which lu tho valuation of men must go for moro than superiority of Intollgonco, It might, Indeed, havo been supposed (hat oven those wlio never enjoyed tho pleasure of personal ac quaintance with Mr. Mill would havo boon Impressed with tho nobility, of bis nature, as Indicated la his opin ions and doeds. How entirely hls public career has been determined by a pure and strong sympathy for hls fellow-men J how entirely this sympathy has suit ordinated all desires for personal advantages; how Ut tlo oven tho fear of being injured lu reputation or position has deterred him from taking tho course which ho thought oquitablo or generous, ought to bo manifest to overy antagonist, however bitter. A generosity that might almost bo called romaulio was obviously tho fcoUng prompting sundry of tho courses of action which havo been commented upon as errors. And nothing Uko a true conception of him can bo formed unless, along with dissent from them, thcro goes recognition of tho fact that they resulted from tho eagerness of a noble nature, Impatient to rectify injustice and to further human welfare. It may perhaps bo that my own perception of this pervading warmth of feeling has been sharpened by scolug it exemplified, not m tho form of expressed opinions only, but in tho form of private actions. For Mr. Mill was not ouo of thoso who, to sympathy with their follow-mcn In tho abstract, Join indifference to them in tho concrete. There camo from him generous acts that correspond with his generous sentiments. X say this not from second-hand knowledge, but having In mind an example known only to myself and a few friends. I havo hesitated whether to give this exam ple, seeing that It has personal Implications. But It affords so clear an insight Into Mr. Mill’s character, aud shows so much moro vividly than any description could do how fluo wero tho motives swaying hts con duct, that 1 think tho occasion Justifies disclosure of it. Bomo seven yean ago. after bearing as long as was possible tho continued losses entailed on mo by tho mbUcotlon of tho “System of Philosophy,” I notified o tho subscribers that 1 should bo obUgod to cease at tho close of tho volume then in progress, Shortly after tho issue of this announcement, I received from Mr. Mill a loiter, In which, after expreealous of regret, and after naming a plan which ho wished to proaecuto for reimbursing me, ho wont on to say: "In tho next plnco .... wuat I propoio is that you should wrlto the next of your treatises, and that 1 should guarantee tho publisher against loss, i. 0., should cn , [ngo, after such length of time as may bo agreed ou, o mako good any deficiency that may occur, not ex ceeding a given sum, that sum being such as tho pub lisher may think sufficient to secure him.” Now. though these arrangements were of kinds that I could not bring myself to yield to. they none tho less profoundly impressed mo with Mr. Mill’s nobility of feeling and hls anxiety to further what ho re tarded as a beneficial end. Such proposals would lave boon remarkable oven had thcro been entire agreement of opinion. But they were tho more remarkable as being mado by him under tho consciousness that there existed between us certain fundamental differences, openly avowed. I had, both directly and by implication, combated that form of tho experiential theory of human knowledge which characterizes Mr. Mill’s philosophy; in uphold ing realism I had opposed in decided ways thoso motapliyalcal systems to which hls own idealism was closely allied ; ami wo had long carried ou a contro versy respecting tho test of truth, la which 1 had simi larly attacked Mr. Mill’s positions In an outspoken manner. That under such circumstances ho should have volunteered bin aid, aud urged It upon mo, as ho did, on tho ground that It would not Imply any perso nal obligation, proved in him a very exceptional gen erosity. Quito recently I have seen afresh illustrated this fluo trait—this ability to boar with unruffled temper aud without any diminution of kindly feeling tho publicly expressed antagonism of a friend. Tho last evening 1 spent at hls house was In tho company of another in vited guest, who, originally agreeing with him entirely on certain disputed questions, had some fortnight previously displayed bis chougo of view—nay, bad publicly criticised somo of Mr. Mill’s positions in a very undisguised manner. Evidently, along with hls own unsworviu; allegiance to truth, there was in Mr. Mill an unuoua. power of appreciating in olliora a llko conacieiitiouu nose; and so of suppressing any feeling of irritation produced by difference—suppressing It not in appear ance only, but lu reality; aud that, too, under tho most trying circumstances. I should say, indeed, that Mr. Mill’s general charac teristic, emotionally considered, was an unusual pro dominance of tho higher sentiments—a predominance which tended, perhaps, both lu theory and practice, to subordinate tbo lower nature unduly. That rapid advance of ago w*hlch has boon conspicuous for some years past, aud which doubtless prepared tho way for .hls soznowhat prematura death, may, I think, bo ro J’ardod as tho outcome of a theory of ilfo which mado earning and working tho occupations too exclusively considered. But when wo ask to what cuds ho acted out this theory, and in so doing too illtlo regarded bin bodily welfare, wo sco that ovou hero tho excess, if such wo call it, was a noble ouo. Extreme desire to further human welfare was that to which he sacrificed hlmsolf, Herdkut Spxkoku. THE WATERFORD BONDS. 8500,000 Returned Thirty-five Por Cent Paid for Tlieim From, the Troy (Y. Y.) Times, Three hundred thousand dollars’ worth of (ho bonds stolon from tho Waterford Bank on tho night of the 14th of October last bavo been returned to tbo vault from which they wero taken. This faEt probably no counts for tho withdrawal of tho Bank Committee from tbo prosecution of Gurloy aud Brandon, aud tho manner in which tbo lost trial of tho former was car rid on. Tho Bondholders’ Committee, consisting of Ohauu coy Houghton, Joseph B. Kuos, and O. House, say that they received information since tho termination of Curley's trial that by tho payment of a certain per centage—reported to bo 35 per cent—ln Now York Im mediately, a very largo amount of tho stolen bonds and other securities could ho recovered. They accord ingly started for Now York yesterday morning with tho necessary funds, and empowered by nearly all tho owners to socuro tho bonds. This fact was carefully ooucealcd from everybody except tho few interested, and outside of (ho losers and thu Times ollleo nut half a dozen persons know of tho excursion. They returned at a lato hour, and wo havo their authority for tho statement that they brought back with them nearly all of tho railroad coupou bonds, registered Government and railroad bonds, miscel laneous securities and stock certificates, Those cer tificates wore never advertised—not being negotiable and of no value to any person except tho original owners. Tho face value of tho bonds and securities brought back is $300,000 and upwards, for which near ly SIOO,OOO was paid, Tho Committee assort in tho strongest language that they made every possible effort to socuro tho return of some of tho Government coupou bonds, of which upwards of $150,000 were stolon, hut woro entirely unsuccessful. AH tho information they woro able to got on tho sub ject was that they had been, together with the money, divided among the burglars and disposed of. *Tho Committee were informed that thoy could have pro cured tho bonds soon after tho robbery by paying nearly tho par value of tho bouds. This tho losers ot the time refused to authorize tho Committee to do. U is probable that tho bonds recorded will bo restored to tbo original owners, and that there will bo uo pro rata division. It is supposed in Waterford that tho com promise was effected through Curley’s New York coun sel.

A young wolf bad been caught aim killed lu tbo neighborhood, and tho oars cut off to be carried to tbo County Clerk, as a vouched for tbo money paid as bounty. Our youth,—lu whoso cuticle tbo futuro Lack-pay Congressman Is unconsciously contained, as, before the sculptor uses bis chisel on the stone, Art's deathless dreams lay veiled by many a vein of Parian marble,— our youth, wo say, found tbo mutilated and earless carcass, and as bo contemplated tbo hairy remains, tbero was “ speculation lu bis eye.” Ho further cut aud bruised bis treasure trove, and then carried It boldly and bodily Into tbo presence of tbo County Clerk. “Wbero did you get It, my llttlo man 7 ” asked tbo potlto official, bound to encourage tbo youthful as pirant to tbo honors and emoluments which reward THE CHICAGO-- PAIbV tho aiieoon*fnl wolf-huolor )• '“'"■'l ‘ j— dec’H Marsh,” replied Vho Juvenile dead-beat, * Any ret away?” inquired the official, “yea.” responded lie adolescent Colfax; “ the old ono amt the other pup: tho old ono carried tho nun off in her mouth,” '* Bov | how camo this oar off 7” thundered the officer of tho law.

Ouo ol tlio Features of tlto Ccnsua*^ From the Keto Yor,k Times, Tho interesting feature which has appeared la tbo other volumes of tho ninth census, has Just boon sp illed to tho volume upon "Industry and Wealth”— hat Is, tho representation of statistical result* by col ored charts, lu tho matter, however, of maps deline ating production, tho Superintendent hod a peculiar difficulty. If, for Instance, ho wished to represent tho per capita production of wheat, the natural method would bo to divide tho aggregate crop of each county by tho population ; but under this scalo aomo of our best wheal counties would happen to contain a largo town or a manufacturing population, would show tho loorcat production. Or again. If two counties' were aken of equal area, and with entirely agricultural population, and If ono Jiad 10.000 inhabitants, and iroducod 750.000 bushels of wheat, this ought certainly a bo ranked iiigbor than another with 1,000 inhabi tants producing 80,000 bushels, or 80 bushels per capita. Suppose, on tho othor band, another ratio wore taken, the number of bushels or pounds to tho aero an related to tho number of acres cultivated. This would bo still moro fallacious, as representing tho pro ductive power of different parts of tho country, for, as is well known, there small regions round aro favorable conditions whore tbo yield of wheat may reach from forty to fifty bushols per aero, and yot if tbo crop wero extended over the State tho yield would not ovorago ten bushols. Tho Superintendent has mot these difficulties by n formation of o somewhat peculiar ratio, which Is, perhaps, ns fair as anything that could bo devised. Ho has taxon two elements; first, tho number of bushols or pounds produced to each Inhab itant, and second, tho number of bushels or pounds to each aero of improved land. These are cort&lnly tho two important elements. Ho has then compounded thorn by multiplying, and taken the square root of tbo product. This final ratio bo bollovos will fairly rep resent tho productive power of each portion of the country, . . ... Tho first chart prepared by tills scalo Is ono.whlca represents, by greon bands of various depths of color, tho production of whoat. Tho deepest nhado of groon, or highest production of wheat, is found in California, in Southern Minnesota, Western Wisconsin, and Northern Iowa; uowhoro olso docs It appear on tho next lighter shade of groon, or tho third grade, appears in Oregon, In u small district of Montano, in Eastern Nebraska, In a portion of lowa, in Southern Illinois and Indiana, In Central Michigan and Eastern Wisconsin. Nowhere, however, is this grade reached cant or south of tho Ohio Illvor. Tho noxt lower grade of production, or tho second grade, appears largely in tho Northwest, tho Central West, Central Virginia and Pennsylvania, oml Northern Now York. Tho lowest shade of color Is scon covering Now Jersey. Pennsyl vania, and a lino stretching west from Chesapeake Bay to Kansas. Tho Southern and Now England States ore entirely whito on this chart. In the chart for hay production, tho highest scale Is represented by a pink color, aud in tho map all tho Northern and Western Statas aro of & moro or loss deop shado of pink, while all tho Southern aro white, with hero and thoro Uttlo islands scattered about rep resenting the lowest grado of production. Tho deep est pink color, showing tho highest production of hay, Is seen in tho oxtromo North and tho oxtromo West, In Northern Now England, Northern Now York, in Min nesota. lowa, Nebraska, aud Kansas.. On tho tobacco chart, tho deepest color, showing tho fourth grade of production, is scon alone In Southern Maryland and Western Kentucky, with a smaU island In Tennessee ond North Carolina. Tho third grado. however, Is found in a strip along tbo Connecticut Biver, os woU as through Virginia, Tennessee, Mis souri, and In Southern Illinois. Nearly all tho union has sm&U islands scattered through it, indicating tbo lowest grado of production. If wo turn now to tbo corn chart, tbo highest grado of production, tho fourth, Is Indicated by a deep yel low. This deepest color wo find alone in tho Central West; tho largest patch of U Is In Central HUnols. Still another in Control lowa, Eastern Nebraska, and Northeastern Kansas. Another small patch of this deep color appears on tho Mississippi. Just below St, Louis. Tho noxt lighter shado of yellow, or tho third grado of production, Is found in a broad baud through Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, Southern Illinois, South ern Ohio, uud Northern Kentucky. Tho lowest grade of production in seen all through tho South and a large part of (he Middle States. On this chart, how ever, the Now England States, Now York, and a largo portion of Wisconsin and Minnesota appear perfectly white. In tho chart for dairy products, tho highest production Is represented under a different ratio, of so much por capita. Tho deepest yellow, ortho fourth grado, represents a value of S4O and over per capita. On this chart Now York is tho yellowest por tion of tho Union, tho deepest shado apnea ring In various portions of It, aud In no other Slate oxcopt a small patch in Vermont on tho borders of Luke Champlain, and a small patch in Northern Ohio, near Lako Erio. Pennsylvania, which has generally been supposed to bo tbo dairy State, par excellence, shows generally tbo lowest shado of production—that Is, a value between $6 and (9 per capita; and In only ono small district, near Philadel phia, docs sho reach tho third grade, of from S3O to $39 per capita. . Tho Now England Slates present gen erally the second grade, of from $lO to $lO per capita { aud in Western Vermont and Western Qon noctlcut reach tho third grado. Northern Ohio at tains also tho third grado, Nearly all, however, of tho Central West and of tho Northwest present only tbo faintest shade of yellow, or a production of from $5 to SO. Eastern Massachusetts and tho South aro com pletely white, Indicating a value of dairy products un der $5 per capita. California, it should bo remarked, equals Now York In its grado of color in tho coast near San Francisco, where dairy products attain the value of S4O and over per capita. These picturesque charts will give to every casual observer a wonderful bird’s oyo view of tho various productive powers of different portions of tlto country, and ho wifi boo how remark ably nature has supplemented tho yield of ono region by that of another. So that a general famine or destruction of agricultural products seems almost impossible in tbo American Union. A Now Panama Object. From the Few York Evening Poet, M. Bsblllot, tho well-known engineer and a member of tho Academy of Prance, has excogitated a project for a Panama ship transit which, though it has somo peculiarly original features, tho Paris Moniteur men tions as having tho simplicity and value of a practical •iporituco. His project in uo way contemplates tho 'construction of a ship canal, though It proposes to transport vessels from tho Atlantia to tbo Pacific Ocean across tho neck of Panama, connecting, bo to speak, the head of tho Western Continent with Uo vital southern body, A gigantic tramway or railroad of tremendous gauge forms tho basts of the work. Tbo train is to no of such construction as lo receive a vessel, with cargo and passengers, exactly as it moors at tho (lock, carrying it across, and lowering it into tho waters of the Pacino. Tho fundamental idea of tho system la to employ what oro termed docks roulanta {wharfs on wheels), containing on either side the engines necessary to move them, and reinforced at tho termini of tho route with such appliances aa to receive tho vessel from ouo ocean and deposit it in the other. It should bo understood that these cars are primarily docks which rest on wheels. Tho plans pro vide for six rails upon which those wheels revolve in the some manner us those of an ordinary railroad. Tho docks vary in proportions and dimensions accord ing to tho needs of tbo service, and consist uniformly of throe parts—in a basin for tho recep tion of tho vessel; on both sides compartments for en gines of 600 horse-power, four in number, for tho pur pose of propulsion. Tho weight of ono of them, filled with water and carrying an Aspluwall steamer, is cal culated by M. Soblilot ut 16.000 tons, thus described: Dock and engines ......4,000 Water In ship-basin ........4,000 Vessel and cargo 7,000 Tho speed to ho attained by these tremendous and picturesque railroad trains is put at eighteen kilome ters (eleven and ouo-faurth miles) per hour, thus traversing tho isthmian interval in from four to five hours. The vessel enters tho dock by means of a gate, which, whon closed, renders tho basin water-tight; the 300 wheels begin to move, each with a momentum of fifty tons; tbo vast and picturesque though noudo script eroaturo of an engineer’s brain tugs and puffs and strains like somo huge boast, then rolls slowly, with terriblo roar of wheels, across tho interval from suu to eca. Strange as this project seems at first glance, It In volves uo very dliUcuit problems of engineering none which have not, severally considered, been solved over and over in thu progress of science. It does not seem so now to us aH, doubtless, It docs to tbo members of tbo French Academy, as a singular project, both for tho truuHlt of ships across the Isthmus and around Niagara Falls, was years ago proposed In this country; differing only lu this. If wo recollect aright, that by the American project tbo ship was to ho carried In a dry-dock. A Parallel to tlio Header Horror* From t/u> Charleston {H, C.) News and Courier, . Tbo recent revelations la regard to tbo atrocious murders committed by tho Bonder, family, in Kaunas, will probably recall to tbo minds of somo of the alder citizens of Charleston a similar series of murders that occurred near this city more than half a century ago. In that day travelers did not enjoy tho faclbtics of railroad transportation, aud in consequence there wore many little wayside Inns scattered along tbo public highways, somo adjacent to tiio cities, and others more remote, Huohunhm was kept a few miles from Charleston. Being near tbo city, it was quite common fur travelers, going or returning, to atop for rest and refreshments. It was kept by two nooplo, a man and bis wife, who wore accounted to bo honest, and, withal, very prosperous persons, Tbolr hostelry was convenient to thu traveling public, and therefore popular. Occasionally a traveler would suddenly dis appear lu a very mysterious ami unaccountable man ner; but uo suspicious attached to tho hospitable Inn keeper and bis wife. Mutters went on thus for some time, tbo mysterious disappearance mcaUwbllo becom ing more and more frequent. Fathers, sous, and brothers going to or from Charleston would suddenly bo missing, and no poanlblo clue to their whereabouts could bo obtained. I’uhUo excitement, oa may bo sup posed, was wrought up to tbo highest pitch, until finally tbero camo a sudden and horrible solution to tbo mystery. Ono night—-so tradition milth—a belated traveler, on bis way to Charleston, stopped at tho Inn. Hitting at tho fire, In tbo bar, sipping bis toddy. It suddenly occurred to him that tbo actions of the boat and bust ess were somewhat peculiar. Tho fato of other travoUf ors lu that section probably maUo bis sense of UaiiMV more than usually ucuto, and bo resolved to be sharply on tho alert. Hu was shown to bis room by bis oblig ing host, and vrbou tbo stops of the latter died away on the stair, bo made o careful in spection of tbo surroundings, Uo discovered 0 ..Act thing* that tho bed upon flitch ho wan* expected to Bleep vu Ingeniously filled In elides, bo that it Could bo lowered with ease to tho ground floor, beneath* Other circumstances convincing him that ha was In a trap of somo kind, ho blow out Ids light and patiently awaited developmental A 111110 after mid night ho hoard nloaUhy slops on tho stairs, and ho Im mediately put hlmeolf in a position to defend himself. Tho slops drew nearer and nearer, and finally tho door, whlolf was guiltless of ollhor look or latch, waa cautiously opened, and tho hospitable host slop ped in. Tho traveler foiled him with a chair and raado his oncapo to fbo city, closely pursued hy both man and wife, who followed him nearly to tho city limits. Information waa at ouco convoyed to tho authorities, and a guard wan sent out to the lun and tho wretches arrested. Tho investiga tion that followed revealed a pit below tho room in which tho traveler waa to have rested. In this thoro woro found tho remains of all who had so mysteriously disappeared. Tho spectacle was a most ghastly one. and the revelation of such atrocity created, in that BrlmillVo day. a much more Intense thrill of horror all irough tho country than tho Bonder butcheries, and .Justice was swift In overtaking tho murderer and his accomplice. THE FIJI ISLANDS. IKorriblo iTlnssncro of Wlixto Mon and Polynesians by mountaineer Sav- ages. Tho Australian mall brings Intelligence confirmatory of previously-received brief reports of tho massacre in njl of a family of white seltlora named Burns, and some imported Polynesian laborers, by a mountain tribe of King Oakabau's fellow-countrymen and sub jects. Thera seems to have been no survivor who could glvo any intelligible account of tho affair. The following particulars were supplied to tho Pijl Times by a Mr. Omle: About half-past 7 on Tuesday morning some of tho imported labor from Mr. Burns' plantation arrived at Itarawal, stating that tho mountaineers had killed Mr. Burns and bis wife. Mr. Macintosh Immediately dis patched Messrs. Stirling and McGrath with about forty Imported labor to render assistance. In about half an hour they got In sight of tho wretches, and saw them coming out of tbo house as thick an bees. When they saw tho two while men coming they quietly walked away. Stirling and McGrath followed them up tho plantation until they crossed tbo river, whore they managed to fetch one down at a long distance. In looking about tho plantation they found tho bodies of Mr. and Mrs, Burns some distance from the house, both qullo naked and mutilated. In a short tlmo after nearly all tho settlers on tho river wore on tho place. At tho oxamluntlon of tho bodies I saw that Mr. Burns bad been clubbed aud tomahawked. Ho only managed to shoot two of them before they managed to give him his death blow. Mrs. Burns, poor lady, must avo suffered agony, by tbo look of Lor. BUo must have received two cuts with on axo or tomahawk on tho lop of her loft shoulder on tho first attack; her loft hand was raised to tho wounds, end still remains in tbo same position now In her grave. BUo had a cut under her loft Jaw ; part' of her teeth down her throat. Two boles, one on each side, evidently made with a spear, which had passed through her body before she fell. I believe her death was caused by a club. Tho mountaineers, no doubt, wore tnkiug Lor away with tho intention of eating her, but were too closely pur sued aud compelled to leave her. Tho Utllo boy was found outside tho house, with a deep out on the right sldo of his head, ami three deep cuts In his right groin, and bis little head clubbed to a o Utile girl, an infant, was a shocking sight. It would appear they had taken her by tho logs and dashed nor brains out against the post of tbo bedroom door, aud then dropped tho child among Its scattered brains, Tho four bodies woro brought and laid out under tho verandah sldo by sldo. As far as I can ascertain at present there ere ton Er romangn’men, five Tanna men, and one Solomon woman killed. Two Tanna men, found with their legs out off and carried away by tho mountaineers, also several othor bodies, no doubt for a cannibal feast. A number of clubs, spears, etc., wore picked up, In and about tho bouse, which by their appearance havo done a great deal of work in murder and destruction of

property. After ransacking everything they commenced to destroy oil they possibly could. Somo money, a chock and other valuable papers, letters, a clock, Jewelry, and a gold watch were found all over tho floor | papers, &c., recovered In good preservation. Everything In tho bedroom, with tho exception of ono largo mirror aud medicine chest (unbroken) were taken away. They were very successful In taking away a number of guns. I tbluk not lees thou twenty, but they did not got much ammunition. Next morning tho mountaineers were plainly to bo seen with a largo amount of their plunder spread out upon tho rocks to dry. Tho mountaineers sent us word that they do not Intend stopping at this, oh they have had a complete success, murdered twenty tn nil, carried a great deal of property away, and destroyed very much more. . . .
