ble calamity at the mines at this place bag cast a gloom over tbe whole valley, and the excitement attending tbe sudden advent of the king of terrors bas caused many kinds of rumors to be put before the public. As near as can be ascertained from the excited state of things, we draw the following facts: The West Pittston shaft, owned by the Lehigh Valley railroad company, and operated by C. A. Blake & Co., of New York, and of which S. H. Brown, of Wilkesbarro, is resident manager, was DISCOVERED TO BE ON FIRE at one F. M. Saturday. Tbe fire was cansed by an improperly oiled journal of the sliivo or pulley over wbich the wirerope for hoisting carriages from thh shaft is run. This occured in what is called tbe head house, some forty feet above tbe mouth of the shaft. Tbe fire rapidly communicated to the breaker, and soon the whole structure was in flames. The scene now beggars all description. It being well known throughout town that tbe men were in the shaft working, altho...

Dr. Duncan, delivered a lecture last night, in Petersburg. Ilia subject waa 'The power and perils of the age." An excursion party visited Petersburg, Saturday last from Weldon, N. C. It is said tbey came to see the sights. Hard up for Bights, we think. The gas lamps on Sycamore stroet, Petersburg, were not lighted the night after the electiou. Tbe "lamp lighters" felt a little dull, we suppose. The people of Virginia are growing rather "cheesy." The "cheese" fever we hope will result in the building of a number of factories.

The horrors ot tue t_oiu_j__e arc __..- plcmented by excesses of the Versailles Government. The last fight in the Cemetery of Pere La Chaise was simply slaughter, the maniacs of the Commune, by a resistance as vain as it was inhuman, provoking a terrible fire from tbeir enemy which destroyed aliko the men and tbe women aud children who had followed their fortunes. Sinco the surrender tbe men taken in arms have been shot by platoons, a hundred falling at a single fire, and these summary military executions have taken place simultaneously in three or four places.— Such policy is incomprehensible to us, who have not shot a single leader of a much greater insurrection ; but such a populace as that of I'aris is also incomprehensible aud fortunately unknown to ns. Humanity will condemn it without question ; but it is uncertain if any other less cruel course of action is open to M. Thiers. He must be cruel to maintain himself, and it is doubtful if the most positive action can now save his...

Bad Beverbe of Fortune.—-A write in the New York Times says ho was walk iDg down the Rua Dereita, the great boil levari! of Rio de Janeiro, one evening las January, when he was accosted by a miserable, ragged, and squalid-looking object who implored him, "for God's sako, give me only a vinte" (less than a quarter of a cent) "to get something to eat." The wretched man said that he had been in Brazil four years. He had left a young wife and child in Baltimore, and had emigrated with many others, whom he said were then as destitute as he, hoping to repair his fortunes, but instead, he had been going rapidly down hill ever since he bad first landed on Brazilian soil. The gentleman—for, despite his haggard look and ragged appearance, the man bore tho somblance of respectability —said that he was a graduate of the Jefferson College Medical Bohool, in Philadelphia, and had at oue time a large and lucrative practice in Richmond, Virginia. When reaching Brazil he had at first endeavored to p...

Petersburg, May 31, 1871. To the Editor of the Slate Journal : For several days a perjury rase has been b.fore th. Mayor. One Junius Branch, a bitter little rebel, in revenge, I suppose, for oue or two bouts he lias had with tbe law, charged Feter Miles, a colored man, with perjury in swearing that he was twenty-one years of age. The case assumed greater interest from the fact that it was one of the first under the new law, where the magistrate acts as both judge and jury. The testimony was very conflicting. The mother of Miles— who ought to know best—testified positively that he was born on June Ist, 1849. That ought to have settled the matter. But the //.___■—becau.-e two while women testified otherwise—goes oil" into a rage about the Mayor "accep'ing the statement of two ignorant negroes, who hardly know w...

Horace Ore-ley In Tuns. A FAREWELL SPEECH AT GALVESTON ON SATURDAY. Qalveslon, Texas, May 29.—0n Saturday night a largo crowd assembled in front of tho Exchange Hotel to hear Mr. Greeley's address, on the political topics of the day. Mr. Camp introduced Mr. Greeley, who spoke as follows: I desired for some time to come into your State with a view to examine its material interests and present them afterwards as I thought they looked ; but tho whole people of Texas united in extending me an invitation, and without exception have treated me with the greatest courtesy and uniform kindness. Hitherto I havo confined what I had to say to topics about which there was no difference of opinion as between North aud South ; but as I am on the eve of departure from the State, 1 have been invited for the first time to speak on political matters, and shall speak with deference to the kindness and with regard to the feelings of all; and I trust my remarks will tend to harmonize differences.

[From the New York Telegraph.] HOW SHALL LABOB BE RENDERED MOST PRODUCTIVE? Undoubtedly the great question of the future with us, after we have succeded in planting tho constitution once more on solid ground, will be that of labor. How to prevent wages from falling below the living point or the zero of the labor thermometer? How to make employment easily fiodable at all times and seasons ? are forms of tho workingman's political questions, to which an effective answer requires be to given. TO DIMINISH POVERTY. To diminish the pressure of poverty upon a sober population, to provido sufficiently paid work for every arm and for the greatest number of arms an encouraging marriage law could possibly produce, easily accessible highways between labor and capital, inexpensive labor removing machinery, "cheap trainsacross the ocean," the constant development and multiplication of labor markets, and the active circulation of money in reproductive channels, are indispensihle.

The Worn Lands of Eastern Vlrglnln and how to restore litem. NO. 11. Passing down tho Totomac the other day on ono of the splendid steamers of the Richmond and Washington line, we met a friend from the West. He remarked the absence of towns and of other signs ol thrift seen along the great thoroughfares o the North. The banks of this noblest o rivers Btretched away for 150 miles to tht sea without a single village worthy ol note on either side ; vast tracts of forest f old fields grown up with broom sedge and pinOj hills washed, gashed and furrowed, with here and there a farm showing enterprise and intelligent culture. This is the panorama which the tide-water region of the Potomac presents. Beautiful everywhere in its bracy expanse of bay and river, its bold promontories, sharp, overhanging rocks, wood, crowned hoights, aud slopes grassed to th( water's edge, it gives us hardly a sign o social life. Beyond the cabins of its fishermen, and the fine old mansions, mostlj in ruins, whi...

[From tho New York Telegraph.] THE WAY OP DEVELOPING MOST WEALTH. Every uncultivated aero of land tends in some degree to keep wages low and food dear. It ia thoroforo a double grievance to the poor. And every horae kept for pleasure, or at work which could be performed by human or mechanical agency, has a tendency to produce the same two-fold evil result. If it were posaible to till the soil and draw our vehicles by some mechanical power, the immediate effect of destroying our horses would bo very conaiderable, and the general productive result of scientific husbandry would be mush greator than it is at present with horse husbandry. Suppose that X, V and Z possess an equal amount of money and 1,000 acres each ofthe some quality of wheat-growing land ; that X lets his property in lots of five acres to two hundred tenants, who cultlvato the soil by manual labor; that V lets his in farms of two huudrod and fifty acres to four tenants, who employ in tho aggregato thirty or forty horses...

dition of womeD, there are one or two points which are really practical arid ia urgent Deed of being granted ; and we bolieve thai such a course would have the effect of lessening the clamor for tho ballot and its political accompaniments. We refer to a higher education and a wider opportunity for employments. These two questions are almost inseparably connected, for employment must always depend very greatly on the education of those seeking it, and the education, in its turn, must be of the sort required for a given trade or The complaint goes up from every shop, every avenue of work in which women are employed, of the scarcity of skilled workwomen. There are plenty of women seeking employment, and but lew that understand any business thoroughly. The prejudice against giving to women tho most liberal educational advantages that ore open to men, is fast dying out, and although public opinion has not yet so entirely agreed to give them free choice of occupations outside tho home, th...

tion i>. *... r.iy in mi. cnatr, _, w. Chambers, secretary. There was talk at the outset of the annual vacation, and when it ought to begin. Several reasons appeared for the belief that adjournment should not bo deferred—among them the advent of willing weather, the sparse attendance, almost entire exhaustion of the supply of letters from country correspondents, and the press of farm work, which keeps some of the best members away, and even prevents the reports being read. However, tho subject was temporarily hid on the table, liable to be call up at any meeting, and tbe old mill bein once more set in motion, ground out t grist in the old way. ARE THERE TWO SORTS OF ASPAHAGU The question was suggested by a let l from James Smith, Pittsfnrd, N. V., w said: "Two years ago this spring bought fifty cents worth of 'Colossal A paragus Seed.'

It is impossible to publish them all ; for our paper would be filled with such matter alone, if we did so.
