It is said that the Knij^bts ot P>thia8 are so well drilled tbat Ibcy could put an army of 50,000 men into tbe field at two weeks' oottoe. Natural gas Beems to tiave bad its day in Pittsburg aud old king coal has anumod bis aucient reign wbiob now, as id tbe past, promises to be a long and prosperous one. The Now York World is dow boused in its new buildiog, one of tbe completest of tbe kind in tliia or any otber laDd, It Is typical of tbe organization of the first-class newspaper tbat tbe removal was effected in a few hoars, ScROEON Gesekal Hamilton would keep undesirable people out ot tbe country by retiuiriog all who want to come to furnish the Amerioan consul nearest to their bomta with offioial evidenoa that they are Bound alike in health and morals. When lorelgD Eovcrnmenta assist tbe ill and evil-minded to this country, it would bean easy matter for ttiem to furnish the evidence required under the Surfeon-Geueral's plan. The friends of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad will be pleased with the annual statement just made by tbe oiEcers of the road. The earnings during the past year Bhow an Increase of three millions of dol-lara. The net increase ia iiot only sufficient to pay the bonded indebtedness interest, he rentals, taxes and other charges, hut o leave a balance of more tbao a miUioa in the treasury. It looks as if this valuable properly was about to emerge from its financial embarrassments. The reoaperatire power of France is BOmething marvelous. After being wrecked and apparently almost ruined in a terrible war, paying an enormous indemnity to Germany, sinking 8400,000,000 in the Panama Canal and losing some smaller anms in the collapse of the Copper Syndicate, she stands ready to furnish England with money to save that nation from floan-oial troubles. National frugality and tho encouragement of small property holders ia working out its beneficial results ia tbat country. Tbe closing of the oontraot for a new line of Bteamera betwan Galveston and South American ports is evidence that tbe ocean carrying trade of this country is about to be distributed over a wider area tkan heretofore. Tbe selection of Galveston aa tbe shipping point" for Sonlk American trade is especially significant. The company, which has been formed with a capital of �50,000,000, appears to be a Chicago concern principally, although many of tbe cities west of the Mississippi are represented in it, and the evident design is to open a trade between the West em wheat-growers and provision houses and the South American countries, without passing it through the Atlantic ports.

LoMDOS, Nov. 35.-Parliament re-assembled to-day. Tbe serious illneea of the wife o( Mr. Peel, Speaker of the House of Commons, neceseitated tbe abeenee of the Speaker from the opening session of the House to-day. Mr. Parnell held a conference with Mr. Justin McCarthy before noon in one of the roome of tho Parliament building. During the conference Mr. Parnell handed to Mr. McCarthy a bundle of papers containing memoranda for his guidance as sessional Chairman of tbe Irish party. There waa a (uU attendance at the opening session of the House of Commons. Mr. Parnell was present, and took the seat he usually occupies, but soon retired to the lobby. When the Deputy Speaker read letters announcing the convietion of Messrs. Dillon and O'Brien of inciting the tenanta on the Smith-Barry estate in Ireland to refuse to pay rent, Mr. Parnell reappeared, and from tbe extreme end of tbe benches, below the gangway, pushed his way forward to a seat on the third bench. Mr. Sexton sat on his right and Mr. McCarthy onhisleft.and tho three con-versed. Shortly after Mr. Parnell re-appeared Mr, Gladstone entered tbe [louse and-WBs greeted with loud cheers. balfoub'a assocncemest. After tbe reading of tbe Queen's speech Balfour gave notice that he would introduce four bills relating to Ireland. Gladstone gave notice of tbe introduction of a bill to remove the disability wbiob prevents C&tholios from oocnpying the office of Lord Chanoellor of England and Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. Balfour announced that ho wonld introduce tbe Irish Land Bill OB Thursday next.   W. H. Smith, government leader, ntimated that the government would take the whole time of the House until the land bills were read a second time.  In reply to nquiries about the Behrlng Sea negotiations Smith declared the government bad tbe strongest hopes that they woLld prove successful. He knew no reason for apprehending any difficulty in connection with the matter. In regard te the Emin relief ex^tedition tbe government has no right to institute an inquiry, as tbe expedition was purely avoiunt-iry undertaking. Regarding the distress in Ireland ample measures would be taken to meet the trouble and care for the people in every district. Morley intimated tbat he would introduce a motion concerning tbe recent events in Tipperary, and Smith promised tbat no opportunity would be given for full discussion of tho subjt^ct. tbe paknell qdestio!). The Press Association states that if Parnell msMa in retaining public leadership of the Irish party, Gladstone will refuse to countenance any amendment to the addreiis in reply to the Qqeen's speech, and trill immediately return to Hawarden 1    ,        , .     ...       , _,,, _ .   n  ,-       .     . , I will be sufficient to defray all the costs of and not appear in Parliament until after L,ai,tji,i,g proposed park as well �a the Cbrisimas holidayp. j the interest on the bonds to bo issued for Tlie Waite Company Score Another Success in "Led AstrBT." The annooncement that tbe Waite Comedy Company were to present Octave Feuillotl's famous play of "Led Astray" bad the effect of drawing a large and fashionable audience at tbe Opera House last night. Those who had never read tbe fasoinating work of this most brilliant novelist as well as those who were familiar with the lines followed tbe striking scenes of the dramatization with an earnest intensity that bespoke the deep interest they felt in the play and its presentation, which was unbroken only by bursts of entbusiastio applause, or the dropping of tbe curtain upon tbe ending of an act. Prom beginning to ending there is opportunity for brilliant dramatic work, which is taken advantage of by Miss Crego and Mr. Waite and the various members of the company, which were seen at their best. Miss Katharine Crego as "Atmande" touched a chord in tbe hearts of her hearers tbat won their undivided admiration, esteem and praise for her artistic efforts. Mr. Jas. R. Waite sustained the rol^ of "Rudolph Chandoioe" with the ability of tbe artist tbat he is. Misses Lester acd Waite and Messrs. Bradley, Knight and Clayton were decidedly clever in their various roles aud in making tbe performance the success it was. Tbe toilets of the ladies wore varied, riah and becoming. .As usual tbe music of the orchestra was charming and every selection was applauded. 3Ii8s Georgia Dean Spaulding gave a solo on tbe Swiss bells wbiob called forth an encore. To-night Miss Crego will impereooate "Fanoheon, the Criket," a play made famous by Maggie Mitchell, and as Mr. Waite gives us his word, as in his opinion. Miss Crego excels this famous actress and a most delightful and artistic performance is assured. To morrow afternoon, special holiday matinee at 2 o'elock, on which occasion will be prodaoed "Kathleen's Dream," and in the evening tbe late Lester Wal-lack'a favorite play, "Rosedale or the BifloBall." The Opera House will undoubtedly be jammed, so if you desire to enjoy these Thanksgiving attractions secure seats at once, A State Park. The State of New York is grappling with the forestry question in a way that promises satisfactory results, la tbe heart of the State lie the Adriondaok mountains aud forests. Tbe Stale already owns 800,-000 acres in that region, an erca one-third larger than Lancaster county, and to this it is proposed to add two or throe million acres more, and then convert the whole into a State Park. This region is tbe source of tbe great water supply of tho Hudson valley, and the State is interested in preserving intact the forest that cover it in order tbat her great river may forever lave tbe feet of her great metropolis with an undimiuished supply of water. T!;e Forestry Committee has just made an interesting report, in wUiob they say "these lands, when acquired by the State and put under a wise forestry administration, directed by a thoroughly competent forester, educated and trained to bis profession, will be forever preserved in their forest condition, while tbe ripened product will bo removed and marketed at an annual income to the Statu of not less than a half million dollars."  It is stated this income At tbe request of Gladstone Mr. Morley has eommunicated to Parneil a letter written by him on Monday, in which be (ays that notwithstanding splendid services rendered by Parnell to his country, bis continuance at the present moment in leadership would bo produolive of consequences disastrous in the highest degree to the cause of Ireland. "I think I may be warrai'ted in asking you so fur to expand the conclusions given above as to add that Paruell's oontinuance as a leader would not place many hearty and effective friends of tbe Iritih oauso in a position of great embarassinent, but would render my intentions of tbe leadership of the Liberal patty, based as it baa been mainly upon prosecution of Irish cause, almost a nulli. ty." SAI-ISllUHY o-s TBETAllIFF. Lord Salisbury addressed the Ucuse-Begardlng tbe McKlaley tariffs law Lord Salisbury would not say tbat England's trade with Africa and the colonies would Immediately compensate her for the loss caused by the American tariff, but it would he a motive for preventing the territory in Africa from falling into tbe bands of nations axeroiaing prohibition. It was lamentably true, he said, tbat the colonies did not fellow tbe motherland in free trade, yet it was a fact tbat the trade of Australia Increased faster than elsewhere.

There was a report in circulation in this city yesterday tbat a man at Renovo bad been beheaded by; falling under a car wheel which passed over bis neck.
