,| lip ;fe FBI OA Y EVENING, SEPTEMBER 16. Among the resolutions adopted at the State republican convention of New Yoik Ian Wednesday was tho following: "The1 subservient spirit displayed in Mr. Cleve? land's illegal order to return rebel battle flags, tbe precious trophies of tho Union troops, deserves only reprobaliou.and justly excites the resentment of all loyal people." There is a great deal of democratic opposi? tion to'Mr. Cleveland in the South?moro than many suppose?some of it because, having issued the order referred to, which was not illegal, and which he bad a right to do, he did uot have it executed, in the face of the clamor of the G. A. K ; but the adop? tion of this resolution by the republican convention of tho great State of New York, showing, as it does, the animosity still en? tertained by the republicans of tho North for their fellow citizens of tbe South, will go n long way toward allaying, if not entirely removing, all that opposition.

FRIDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 10. Enormous Railroad Figures?In an address on the business of the London and North western railroad (England) recently delivered, some figures are presented that, on account of their magnitude, are exceed? ingly interesting. That great railroad car poration now ha3 a capital of ?110,000,000 (about $550,000,000), or about the same capi? tal as that of the southwestern group of railroads in this country, although the lat? ter have nearly ten times as many miles o road. The revenue of the London and Northwestern is about $50,000,000 annually. It ha3 G0.000 "servants," or, as we would say in this country, "employes," 16,000 of whom are employed in locomotive con? struction. Although the road, with all its branches, is very little longer than the Pennsylvania railroad, with its leased lines (exclusive of those west of Pittsburg,) yet the London and Northwestern runs through such a populous country that it carries an? nually 60,000,000 passengers and 03,000,000 ...

SATURDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 17. A Colossal Meteoe.?A wonderful phe? nomenon occurred at Barringtorj, N. S., Thursday night r.bout eight o'clock. A iuminous body, looking es large as an ele? phant, with a long tail attached, suddenly appeared in the southeastern sky, and shot out of sight in a southerly direction. The uight was cloudless, and without a moon, hut the stars were out, and a strange, soft blue and white light lit up the whole firma? ment as bright as day. The light was only live or eii6econd3 in duration, when all be? came suddenly dark again. To a person at the south end, it appeared liks a fearful ex? plosion in the vicinity of the northwest arm, iu which direction the light was brightest, but the noise supposed to accompany most explosions was absent. A reporter was crossing North End Common, when he was startled by a sudden burst of fire lighting up the whole neighborhood. The meteor de? scended like a shot out of the misty air. It looked like a large electrio light,...

? ? nim (teilt. MONDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER lit. The Czar'3 Superstition.?The Czar, it has been understood, has a superstitious horror of war, and it is to this circumstance that Prince Ferdinand, of Bulgaria, owes the prolongation of his reign, at least so say the political gossips in London. The Em peror of all the Russias has been warned by some of the modsrn soothsayers, upon whose utterances he seems to place reliance, that be and his reign will come to an end during u war, and he dreads the beginning of hos? tilities. The fate of the present Bulgarian regime may be said to depe?d upon Ger? many, and the existing condition of things will, it is believed, endure until the meeting of the Czar and The Emperor William at Stettin, or, more accurately speaking, until the date fixed for that meeting, for there is strong doubt of its ever taking place. Mean ? while the Czar'a desire to prolong peace as long as possible postpones a crisis which t-veu his inaction cannot defer much longer....
