THE PBES8. THÙBSDAY MORNING, MAB. 27, 1878. KvfîBY regular attache of the Press is furnished will) a card certificate countersigned by Stanley T. pullen, Editor. All railway, steamboat aud bote managers will confer a favor upon us by demanvling credentials ever> person claiming to represent our journal, as wo have information that several "hum mers" are seeking courtesies In the name of the Ρ κ ess, and we have no disposition to be, even pas A voly, a party to such fraud. We do uot read anonymous letters and communi cations. The name aud address of the writer are in all cases indispe ab e, not necessarily for publication but as a guarauty of good iaith. W ; cannot undertake to retaru or pre erve com· municauons that are not useu. Hon to Settle Railroad Quarrels. The telegraph announces that two railroad companies in the State of Ohio have institut ed a new method -jf making war upon each other. One rival company with its adherents seizes a road that it claims, tears up the track, cuts the telegraph wires and stops the trains and there waits the result. At list accounts the other party was approaching with its armed bands of men. Viewed from the ideal stand point of 19th cantury civilization and the advanced prece dent ot the Treaty of Washington,this method of settling a rial road broil, isn't quite the thing. Nevertheless there are valid roasons why an adjustment ot such troubles by an appeal to the arbitrament of revolvers and Henry's rifles, should be generally adopted. Humor hath it that e, cry Legislature in the land is scandalized by their outrageous enactments In the interest of railroad corporations. The State of New Jersey is often called New Scotland because of the power of Tom Scott over its legislation. The New York legisla ture has been so demoralized by fifteen years of railroad lobbyism that two of those bodies elected as reformers have agonized in vain to get out of the bad old ways. The legislature of Pennsylvania has its money valuation as accurately fixed by experienced railroad kings as is that of other property in the Siate. In Maine where all men possess such rare vir tue that they cannot be purchased by annual passes, the legislature does very strange things for railroads, aud neglects the business of the people. In short, from all we can gather from the papers, despite such rare and shin ing examples as Oakes Ames, Daniel Drew, Jay Gould, Commodore Vanderbilt and Tom Scott, the railroad rulers of the land are a class that the country would be more happy and virtuous vere it rid of them. Now suppose they change their mode of warfare so that instead of buying legislatures, bribing courts or justice and harrassing the people general ly, the magnat ;s be allowed to enlist their several bands of retainers, place themselves in tlie fore front ran s of their armed cohorts, and in every case where a dispute arises, set tle it by a vigorous appeal to arms in an open field where there can be no subterfuge. It' this new system of adjusting troubles is adopted and the great leaders are as valient on this arena as they have proved themselves persistent in demoralizing legislatures and good but weak men, we may not only expect a speedy adjustment, but that the railroads of the nation will be left without kings andown ers. Then we shall be prepared to adopt the plan of Mr. Charles Francis Adams, Jr., which is that the State own the railroads and run them for the benefit of the people ; for the mighty magnates and the corrupt corpor ations having committed mutual hari-kari, the roads will naturally fall to the State. The more we think of this plan the more strongly impressed are we with its great value ; for it will hurry up the millennial period at least a thousand years. Doubtless the Amer ican Peace Society and Mr. Bergh will pro test against this method, but let us remind them that peace must come by the tword. The pending fight between the Boston & Maine and Maine Central affords an excel, lent opportunity to try the experiment. We d>u't positively insist upon it; but if they conclude to fight it out on the lino we pro. let them give us non-combatants timely notice that w; may get to the rear. Last tall three young ladies paid tbe regular matriculation and entered the Penn sylvania Dental College at Philadelphia. During the first session the young women were among the first students of their class in diligence and intelligence. But at the beginning of the second session the doors of tbe institution were barred against them because twenty of the young men of the class petitioned tbe fac culty to refuse them further instruction un der the threat that they would leave the in itiation. One can hardly conceive of a young man so utterly deficient of the spirit of fair play as to object to a woman's obtaining a pro fession by paying for it, or of the utter soul lessness of a college faculty who would mildly cringe to the selfish dictates of such students. It is to be said in behalf of a large majority of the students that they signed an indig nant protest to the contemptible action of the faculty. A ο heat many, if not a majority, of the Roman Catholics of Michigan have lately been greatly exercised thiough the passage of a bill by the State Senate to restrict the powers of their bishops and clergy in the natter of excommunication and "discipline." The measure in question p-ovides for the punishment, by fine and imprisonment, of any church dignitary who shall take such a course with persons over whom he may claim to have religious control as shall affect their rights in civil actions. The subject was doubtless brought to the notice of the Legislature by Catholics who have suffered from arbitrary proceedings on the part of priests of whose management of church prop erty they have found good reason to disap prove. ■W atebville, which already has six Churches, is to have another. Mr. C. F. Hathaway, formerly a Baptist, on Sundav lait addressed a large assembly in the town hall. He announced that be bad fitted up a chapel on Main street, where he should preach on Sundays and conduit Sunday school, singing meeting?, prayer meetings •ηΛ silent meet'ngs. He modestly states that his superior spiritual-mindedness leads him to take thl« strange step. Good people say, "he means well, but"—and finish the sen tence by tapping the forehead significantly. "Alas for the rarity of Christian charity." Now that the members of Congress have | got or can cet the $6000 that a small major ity votei to all, it is really wonderful to see how many ways the people hare to suggest for its expenditure. One of our most respec ted citizens suggests that the whole amount bî donated to complete the Washington mon ument now balf completed at the national Capitol. Other gentlemen who most severe ly denounce the Butlerian raid, complacently suggest that the Congressmen drawing it eould embalm their memories by giving it to this or that institution. Have they forgotten the legal maxim : Qui/aeit per alium, facit Per tef Perhaps it would have been just as well if Senator Caldwell had not resigned his seat in t"ie United States Senate since it is said that he will be a candidate for re-election. Ex Senator Pomeroy's friends are confident that he will succeed. Following these two rather nn-avory gentlemen there is a large number of candidates, beginning with Congressman Lowe and ending with ex-Rev. Isaac S. Kal loch. Mr. Yorke Is not yet in the field, but the election does not take place until Janua ry, 1874. Josie Mansfield is represented to be ia Paris again, where she is playing the role made famous by Cora Pearl, and "bleeding the pocket of an American millionaire." It is oleasant to know that the lady puts on no foreign al-s, modestly preferring to etick to *ler beloved countrymen. Thil aggregate ice harvest on the Kenne bec amounts to the round figure of 320,000 tons. This goes to show that the Kennebec ers expect warm weather even if there is no immediate prospect of it. The Supreme Court of Illinois lately de- I cided that bonds issued by towns and coun ties for the purpose of influencing tbe selec tion ot certain sites lor public institutions are illegal. Tbe question arose through the re fusal of the Treasurer of Livingston County to pay interest on bonds given to aid in the construction of the State Reform School buildings at Pontiac. The Augusta agent of the Associated Press and night operator ot the Western Un ion Telegraph Company in that city, when he appiopriates our specials will do well to re write them instead of taking them bodily. Such a course will at least indicate a degree ot modesty of which on several occasions he has shown himself painfully deficient. Γηε investigation before the Committee 3f the New York Senate into the affairs of the Erie Railroad Company, reveals the tact that it cost $800 000 to capture the road from Jay Gould and his associates. Of course this large sura came out of the stockholders as other larger sums have. In a few years railroads will pay larger sums for useless wars and corruption than as dividends. A bill lias been introduced in the Massa chusetts House of Representatives placing all publications which illustrate or «'escribe the commission of crime in the same categoiy with obscene publications, and forbidding their sale under the same penalties. The venerable citizen who has found in an experience of fifty years that the last week of March is the time of all the weeks of the year to plant his early peas, now concludes that the full moon of April or May will do quite as well. The shipment of lumber from Burlington is 120,000,000 feet per year, not 12,000,000, as misprinted in our issue of yesterday. This it just about equal the amount of lumber hand led here yearly. Wednesday gold run up to 110 1-8, the highest figu.-e siuce September, 1870. The Fakragut Models.—No one seems to have a good word for the models of a statue to Farragut since the Congressional Committee rejected them all, and a correspondent of the New York Tribune cuts them up in this merci less fashion: Here are the models for the Farragut statue, which are almost without exception the ludi crous failures of unheard-of stoue cutters. Somebody named Turini illustrates bis capaci ties by an Admiral, which is a pleasant combi nation of a poet and a Pecksniff; and another somebody, called Pickett, turns his subject into a gold-laced clergyman of a mournful and sanc timonious aspect, who holds his glass gingerly to his waist with one hand, aud appears to be contemplating doubtfully the future prospects of al'. other Christians. C. L. Ostner presents a pedestal down which two dolphins wiggle, and at whose base stands a fat boy in the act of howling. On the top stands a pompous and ip:isnîhli» !■':trr:i(πJf, nf t.hp fin#» nlH trail ΐ finifa ru sort, w'io is apparently shouting strong lan guage at the noisy fat boy. J. Drishler, an other unknown, brings a thing whose most striking point is a brow, and which may be tru ly said to be a terror to its foes. Mr. Fiske Mills sends a figure of a gloomy and muscular policeman standing by a park fence and playfully labelled "Farragut" for this occasion ouly. Another Mills griuds ont a chubby and cherubic creature, who grasps his sword and points into the distance in the ex tremely inane fashion which it is well known all naval commanders adopt on important occa sions. The models of Rogers and McDonald— both lashed to the mast—are rather better than the ethers, having something of spirited and enthusiastic action, but they have not, among other lacks, the dignity that anything larger than a statuette requires. A Mr. Eze kiel is represented by a work which looks as much like an uuhappy Feejee as it does like Farragut. Miss Ream's was the only large mod el presented. It nobly sustains the reputation of the artist. It is the figure of a respectable old imbecile, with as much life, soul, verve, spirit about him as a tobacconist. Any plas terer might moid a hundred of bim in a year and never feel it: It is a consolation to know that though needing but one sorry vote to gain the commission, Miss Ream did lose it with the rest of the image-venders. That she came within one vote of getting It is a sufficient com ment upon the critical taste of Congressmen. Ex-Senatob Patterson's Case.—Ex-Sena tor Patterson has prepared a pamphlet of forty pages in which be reviews and criticises the report of the Senate Committee to investigate the Credit Mobilier matter, so far as relates to him. In conclusion be says: "Never in the history of the United States or of Europe did it occur that causes so weak pro duced agitatiou so intense in the higher circles of the government. If it were a great cata c.ysm of corruption and fraud which had over whelmed us like the South Sea bubble in Eng land, or the Mississippi bubble in France.there might be something to contemplate with senti ments of respect for the public weal, and of consequent severity of inquiry into imputed or suspected corruption on the part of men in high stations; men of hitherto blameless lives, unstained honor, and some of them Represen tatives of the semi-sovereign States of the Un ion; but no, it is nothing of the kind. It is only a bagatelle of stock in the Credit Mobilier, utterly insignificant as an inducement to vote adverse to the public interest, wnich was not purchased or owned with auy such thought,and with 110 nroof existing that the fact haa preju dicially affected any measure before Congress, and yet for such a cause as this each house of Congress bas given itself np to the functions ot a tnounal of inquisition,exaggerating the most innocent or indifferent acts into crimes,dissem inating mutual distrust and ill-willj severing long cherished friendships, and laboring to find in metnbtrs subjects of inculpation, which, if fouud, would serve no purpose but discredit and lisgrace the institutions and people of the [Jnited States. I say the people of the United States, for the Senators and Representatives ire the elected agents of the people; their vir ,ues and their vices are the common stock of he nation, and if the Senators and Represen tatives are higher than the people so mucb the more are the latter depressed in estimation by the errors of the former. As to the present inquiry let the Senate look the facte frankly in the face to see that the ef fect of the report, when considered alongside of the report made to the House, and of the ac tion of the latter is to make me the single vic tim of proceedings in Congress, instituted pro fessedly to meet accusations of the public press emanating from an act of larceny or burglary, and pursued under the whip and spur of that same public press. Congress, in the morbid state of mind produced by these investigations, has seemed to sup pôts that sensational paragraphs in the news papers, which are pleasant reading to-day aud are forgotten to-morrow· constitute the judg ment of the people of the United States, and so it seemed to have been thought that Con gress must undertake the great process of self purification in the ingenious form of suicidal self-iuim lation; but the oxcitement was here, and not amont the people of the United States. The moment Congress adjourns reaction com mences in favor of the martyrs to this super fluous agitation in Congress. Gentlemen—The most inculpated are received with triumph when tbey return to theii- respec tive States. The Administration suffers no prejuc ice, either from the panic terror of the Ituvuecu) «.»» IJUV v\|uuo,r p«u*v vwx&wx υΐ ων B1U cere among the accusers. Thus we were told that the investigations regarding the Credit Mobilier were to affect injuriously and perhaps defeat the Republican party in my own State of New Hampshire, when the contrary effect is in dicated by the electoral returns from that State, and indications of similar reaction have occur red iu other States. In conclusion, let me say that X have re viewed tbe report with anxious purpoae to dis· cipline myself to a candid examination of its contents; discharging my miud of the natural feeling ot'resentfulness, in view of the severe conclusions of tbe Committee, penetrating into the recessee of my owi conscience to judge my owe actions and motives, without reserve or mercy; in a word, discussi ng the case impar tially and without bias, favor or affection, as if it were a question of history relating to some third person of another age. of other foreign country; and on such a retrospect of the facts, I do solemnly appeal from the condemnatory opinion of the Committee to the better judg ment itself, of my countrymen and of my God. Suspicious Destruction ok λ Mail.—The Springfield Republican says there are strange rumors concerni ag the railroad accident near Springfield at two o'clock on the morning of March 8, by which a train was thrown from'the track down an embankment, and the mail car burnt. A large and valuable mail from Boston and Springfield to New York was utterly d<· stroyed, save tbe insignificant items of two reg istered and fifty other letters. The accident was attributed at the time to a broken rail. The circumstances of the affair are under investiga tion, and in the course of tbe week severnl sin gular facts have been developed. For instance, it is said that tbe padlooks of the destroyed bags were all found unlocked; that there w<rj fewer traces of burned paper around the scene than would bave been left by so many letters; and that the "broken rail" was not broken un til after the accident, but that tbe spikes which fastened it to tbe sleepers, had been removed. Mk. Geo. O. Gosse, the well known and brilliant Assistant Editor of the Arjus, has resigned his position on that journal with whicli he has been connected for fifteen years. During that period he has acquired an envia ble reputation as an accomplished and versatile journalist. Hu lias a happy and genial facility of expression, and an unfailing fund of good natured wit and humor. He will be seriously missed by the press of this city and we sin cerely hope that his retirement is but tempora ry. We learn that Mr. Gosse'e services have been secured by tbe Boston & Maine Railroad Company to look after their advertising in Maine and the Provinces. Nftws and Other Items.

It is said that it has recently been discovered that liquor dealers in Iiarrisburg buy large numbers of empty ink-bottles, which the.v fill with whiskey and sell to the members as "ink, warrante 1 not to corrode," which accounts for the frightful stationery bills. The Pennsylvania constitutional convention has adopted a section making it bribery for a member of the legislature to receive from any corporation or person "any money, testimoni al, reward, thing of valne, etc.," for his vote, or to act as agent or attorney for a corporation or person. A Mr. Von Vlick, ex-medium, has made something of a stir in Chicago by the exposure of spiritualistic quackery.

In glancing back at the history of proprietary med icines in this country, it becomes at once evedent that Hostetter's Stomach Bitters has been the mott bucc ssful of them all.

The amount of disease and Buttering that has been pre vented by its exten lsivo use as a preventive me^jcina is, of course unascerlainable, but it is a well known and undisputed tfact that the malaria which gener ates periodic fevers and many other distressing and dangerous disorders seldom, if ever, produue I any injurious, effect upon systems that liave been fort! ft od in advance by a course of this invaluable vegetable tonic.

Sometimes medicineâ that will stop a cough will of ten occasion the death of the patient. It locks up the liver, stops the circulation of the blood, hemorrhage follows, and, in fact, clogging the action of the very organs that caused the cough. Liver complaint and dyspepsia are the causes of two-thiids of the cases of consumption. Many are now complaining with dull pain iu the side, the bow els sometimes costive and sometimes to loose, tongue coated, pain in the shoulder blade, feeling sometimes very restless, and at other times drowsy ; the food that is aken lies heavily on the stomach, accompani ed with acidity and belchiug of wind. These symp toms usually originate trom a disordered condition of the stomach or a torpid liver. Persons so affected, if they take one or two heavy colds, and if the cough in these cases be suddenly stopped, the lungs, liyer and stomach clog, and remain torpid and inactive, and before the patient is aware of bis situation, the lungs are a mass of sores, and ulcerated, and death is the inevitable result. Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup is an expectorant which does not contain any opium, nor anything calculated to check a cough suddenly. Schenck's Seaweed tonic diss ν the food, mixes with the gastric juice of the sto ach, digests easily, nonrishes the system, and créât a healthy circula tion of the blood. When the els are costive, skin shallow, and the patient i3 a billious habit, Schenck's Mandrake Pills are required. These medicines are prepaired by Dr. J. H.
