All this work has been done since the

In the meantime Capt. Jones has been

: Judge Black on Railroads.
The business of New York being so de
pendent on the railroads, the question of
controling those greiit winks which tend
towards that city has ussnmed pressing
importance. The New York Assembly
appointed a committee to investigate the
matter two yers since, and! we were sur
prised to find that the chief officers to
whom' 'were, committed thc responsible
function of fixing rates stated under oath
that the rates agreed on were. tint found
ed on any principle, nor ooreany relation
to the cost of crrriage.. Of the actual cost
of transportation, these officers stated
they were ignorant.
hnrely they were incompetent and
ought to have been t oiice displaced.
Railroading is not only a business, but a
most important business, and every ele
meut which affects the working of a road
ought to be understood by j those officers
charged with fixing the rates of carriage.
There is no mystery in tho matter it
merely requires attention to details. Be
canso of he powrrful influence which
these corporations, exert upon tlie business
prosperity of New York city, its chamber
of Commerce has appointed a torn mittee
on rail roads, and these have obtained from
Judge Blacli his opinion on the question
of the control of railroads bv State au
thority. Judge Black takes an extreme
view, but his view is getting to be large
ly entertained by thoughtful lawyers. In
what is known as the Dartmouth College
case, Mr. Webster insisted that charters
ot incorporation were con tracts. Thecourt
long hesitated, and it was supposed were
about to decide adversely to Mr. Web
ster's argnmeht, but it is now said that
some unusual influence was brought to
bear niton the couit, aud a decision was
made but little anticipated, which has
been very far-reaching in its effects. For
half a century the country has submitted
to that decision ; but of late years it has
been greatly questioned and the tendency
of tlie courts is to emasculate it bv uiviii"
prominence to the well settled priuciple
that property used in and about tlie pub
lic becomes impressed with'the character
of public property and is subject to rea
sonable control of the public expressed
through the Legislature. And just as the
records of our courts show that tho old
time judges and justices used to fix the
price of drinks and of board at the taverns
so now the right is claimed for tho Legis
lature to fix the price of carrying the
public and its grain upon i the railroads.
Judre Black takes this view and savs:
"A public highway cannot bo private
property, and a railroad laid out and built
oy the authority of the State for the pur-
Mises of commerce is as much a public
highway as a turnpike road, canal, or nav
And he again savs : J
the habit of calling themselves 'the owners
of the railroads have no proprietary right,
titlej or claim to the roads themselves but
a mere franchise annexed to and exercisa
ble thereon. They are the agents of the
State for the performance of a public duty.
If tiio franchise be forfeited or surrender
ed, or if it expire by efflux of time, the
State takes possession of the road, and
runs it herself, or employs a new agent.
The company cannot keep the road any
more than au outgoing collector of u port
can' appropriate' to himself the custom
house where he did his official work."
Speaking of the unlawful practice of
granting rebates, he s.ays
'Suc!i wrongs as these' are done, not
only in a few sporadic cases, but gener. 1
y and habitually on a Aery large scale.
Certain oil men, whose refinery was on
Long Island, got rebates amounting to
$10,000,000 in eighteen months ; , and
seventy-nine houses (I believe that is tho
number) engaged iu the same business
were broken up"
In conclusion, he remarks :
'I maintain that all the. States have a
clear and indefensible right to protect
their people against such wrongs, and to
exercise tlie power as a sacred duty. .When
that duty is properly performed the inter
nal trade of each, State will ceaso to be
enslaved and crippled as it is now. "But
the coiunierco between the States will
still be open to inequalities, aud liable to
oppression aud plunder by transportation
companies unless the national Legislature
does something to save it. Congress has
power 'to regulate commerce between the
.. "It is not strictly within the scope of
tliat authority when it makes a law for
bidding carriers through the State to in
jure, impede, or destroy the general trade
of .the country by extravagaut and dis-
cnniinaung cunrgesT ii mat ue not a
regulation of inter-State commerce, what
would be I The power bing conceded, an
effectual mode of righting the wrongs now
complained of can easily be devised.?, .

A Collar of Fire.
PiTTseynG, pec. 2. A thrilling acci
dent 'occurred at tp American Iron
Works, on South Side, this afternoon.
Wliile Robert Moore was at work at his
rolls his catcher failed to seize with his
tongs a bar of white-hot iron, which had
been placed between the rolls. The iron
twisted itself thrice around the rolls,
forming a "collar." The catcher struck
tne iron, when ttiere olew oil a piece in
shape of a ring with a. stem twenty inches
long. Running oft' at right angles to the
circle the band flew back and fell around
Moore's head, resting on his shoulders.
Quick as thought he grabbed the long
stem with his tongs and the white-hot
ring with his hand, and with steady nerve
and gentle movement lifted the fiery thing
from his'shouWeTS. His 'face was badly
burned ly the; heat emitted from the iron
and the rlesli of his hand was cut into the
bone. Afterwards he put tlie ring over
his head. It was but tnro inches lamer
in diameter than his head.

Maj. S. M. Vhiger, of Newton, was iu
the city yesterday, returning from a
meeting of the board of directors of the
Chester and Lenoir Narrow Gauiie Rail
road, at Dallas. Tlie directors boarded
a train night liefore last, and made the first
trip over the Simth Fork river bridge,
just completed. The bridge is descrilied
as a substantial structure aud a credit to
the builders, private contractors from
Atlanta. At a meeting of the board the
financial condition of the company was
discovered to be : such as to justify them
in pushing tho work forward to com
pletion as far as Newton. With the ex
ception of a half mile, or something of
the kind, in the vicinity of Lincoluton
the grading is completed to Newton, and
the building of the trestles has heeui pro-
vidd for. The company already has
sufficient iron to lay the track to within
four miles of Newton, and this has al
ready I ecu pai tly distributed. It is ex
pected that trains will be running to

A few days; since, we spoke of the need

"What could not Kaliegh do if her eo-
ple had some enterprise t When we . sec
what other places have done aud are

There are now about twenty lobneeo

Commenting on this that excellent
paper, the Fayetteville Examiner says it
hopes we are mistaken in the implica
tion of a waut of euergy on the part of
the people of Raleigh. . It goes on to. say:
tlie statcuieui is certainly true as to the
immense value of manufacturing to a
section or community. Cotton mills,
woolen mills, tobacco factories, .Jron
foundries, and other her enterprises of
like character are the great motive pow
ers which build up towns, enhance the
value of real estate, put capital to work
and money iu circulation, and contribute
to the general proierity by the employ
ment of skilled and remuaerative labor.

KsoxvitLK, November 29. Further
particulars have been received of a terri
ble ioisouiug case in 'this State. The
marriage of Joel Hambreo and Miss Jane
Dale, of Roune count v, drew together a
large company of tlieir friends aud . rela-
tivus, who belong to the prominent fami
lies Iu the viciuity. The' wedding bad
long been talked of, and was the social
event of the year. Aftei the ceremony
the compiiny was invited to the hospita
ble board of Col. Dale, the bride aud
bridegroom iu the menu time withdraw
ing. The table was bountifully supplied
nud all ate heartily. Tlie evening was
8 pent iu festivities, j Another supper was
served. After the second meal several
guests began complaining of illness, but
it was laughed off and the gayety contin
tied. About 1 1 o'clock a sudden lethargy
seemed to overtake tho whole company
and in a few minutes 27 were unconscious.
The few who retained consciousness set
themselvels at work to resuscitate their
companions, but without avail, f Twelve
were removed to other . houses in ; tho
neighborhood, and as the news spread
the whole country-round was aroused
with excitement, as nearly every promi-
nent family, had members present at the
fatal feast. Such medical aid as could
be summoned could give little relief, and
two days after the occurrence six of j the
w eliding guest were dead. Robert Dale

arc very low, aud their death is inomem

dy was the use of arsenic instead of salt

purchased a quantity of arsenic a day or

left it iu the kitchen. A blundering ser-
