We often have complaints from residents of Savan

great as to exhaust an Edition very soon afler it* lasue,

BUSINESS DIRECTORY OF SAVANNAH.
We are now publishing s column and more of brief
business announcements, carefully classified, under
the general head of -Sawnnah Business Directory."
It includes some forty leading business men and
firms of Savannah. We propose to retain tills as a
regular feature or the Herald. The expense of In
serting cards In this department of the paper is very
small, and we believe the advertisers will receive
more than a proportionate benefit. Patties wishing
to nave their cards Included in this Directory, can do
a» by sending them to onr counting room, or hand
mg them to Mr. M. J. Divine, who is authorised to
receive them. Prepayment will be invariably re
thc great labor movement.
Among the many subject .which now en
gage the attention of the public mind of this
country, not the least interesting is that of
ilie eight hour system of daily labor by arte
saus mechanics, and laborers. In the I nited
States and Great Britain the labor element is
treated with that consideration which
the vast political influence it can exeit de
mands ; and lor several months past the im
position, which basso long be n coni puls u y
of bearing the toil and heat of the day for elev
en hours has been'growing so irksome to those
who endure of this alleged wrong, a pow-and
erful effort has been made to induce capital
ists to consent to a modification of the rules,
so as to reduce the time to eight hours. In
conformity with this plan a general conven
tion of the trades assemblies throughout this
country is proposed to be held this fall, to
secure the success of this and other measures
effecting the wotking classes. The general
interest felt in this subject, more especially
in the Northern and Western States, will
probably result in a very important gather
ing. The working men's Union in the city
of New York are taking the lead in this
matter, and propose two main topics to be
discussed by the convention, viz: the eight
lioui question and the laws of apprenticeship
Steps are to be taken to establish thc first
and to reform the second, and the wages
question, it is stated, will come up incident
ally, since it is generarly admitted that an
established reduction of the hours will be fol
lowed for a time at least, by a proportionate
reduction in the rates of wages
• Several State and National Trade's Con
ventions have been held already Within a
month the German societies of Cincinat'i
have held their convention, and passed reso
tions in favor of the adoption, by “moral and
legislative action,” of the eight hour system;
and this meeting was considered of much
importance, as it was understood to fully
commit all the working Germans of the
West and South to the movement. Nearly
all the trades were represented in the recent
trades assembly picnic at Chicago, and the
measure was enthusiastically approved.
The leading advocates of the desired
changes propose to continue the agitation of
the subject hntil their efforts are crowned
with success, not by the exercise of physi
cal power, but by systematiziug mental de
mands, —by endeavoring to convince, not to
compel by violent agitation, or improper ap
peals to passion and prejudice. By the
adoption of such a line of policy they are
confident of ultimate success.
A Philadelphia paper, which claims to be
the organ of the classes interested, says, “the
principles advocated are founded upon the
immutable laws of right, and though crushed
to earth will rise again. That by a proper,
judiciouß, and temperate action, all just de
mands will be complied with, and the life of
the laborer rendered a third more happy
than before. The large class interested have
got the power ; they hold the bolts of lightn
ing, and should not be afraid to use them,
but use them wisely.”
We have not, as yet, seen any action in
either of the Southern Atlantic and Gulf
States, responsive to the movements we have
noticed, which is owing, no doubt, to the
present unsettled condition of affairs. It is
reasonable to suppose, however, that the im
portant measure will not be wholly ignored
by the mechanics and laborers of the South.

New York, Aug. 30, 1865.
The Feeble Attempt

of plunder as this long-armed, grasping and
over-reaching Metropolis lias received its
merited sarcastic and sardonic laugh as a re
ward for its almost fruitless ende&v or. It some

place for mammoth investments. The an

sixty-four thousand dollars only provoked a
smile of derision upon the hardened and cal

and the exclamation made in the Gold Room,
during the pandemonium-like operations
there, of “Bully for the Hub !” was received
silently, more in sorrow than in anger.

should be applied to Peach Short Cake. As
popular as Strawberry Short Cake is—and as
deservedly so, as it is—Peach Short Cake,
certainly surpasses it. In proof of this it is
only necessary to quote the remaiks of one
of the waiters in response to an inquiry, “Is

Insurance Against Accident.
In these times when railroad accidents are
almost as plentiful as peaches, anew style
of life Insurance has attained great popularity.
Before imperiling his or her lite on one of the
slaughtering machines ’yclept a railroad, the
male or female passengers who is posted
takes out, for the small sum ot ten cents, in
surance against casualty to life for twenlj
four hours to the amount of three thousand
dollars. If life is lost, the company guarantees
to pay the entire sura over to the heirs of the
person butchered. If he or she loses a leg,
or arm, or is otherwise temporarily disabled,
the insurers will pay so much per week,
varying, as to the damage done, from five to
twenty-five or fifty dollars for half a year, i
Just now’ the insurance companies are not
profitting vastly by this style of busiuess, for
since the 25th of January there have been no
less than t wenty.four accidents invoU ing great
loss of life. But with ordinary care on the
part of the directors, the profits of these cou
cerns will be very remunerative. They are
an excellent thiug in their way, and thou
sands are securing their insurance simulta
neously with their railroad tickets.

THE CABLE AND ITS PROSPECTS.
Moorings had been laid down for the Great
Eastern at Sheerness, and the inference was
drawn that she would not go out again tills
The London Times says t'>e experience of
the expedition is full of encouragement tor
the future. The ouly discouraging circum
stance is the apparent inability of electriciaus
to discover serious faults In the cable betore
it is payed over the side of ship. The delay
for another year will not be thrown away if
it enables them to devise better tests of ex
cellence of cable before it is submerged.—
Though, whether they do so or not, we must
believe the possibility of an Atlantic tele
graph established, and look forward to the
| day as certain, even If distant, when Eng
lauu and America will throb with one pulse
The Daily News special correspondent says:
It is more than probable that the Great East
ern will be despatched to fish up the severed
cable as soon as she can be refitted with
stronger ropes and grapnels. No formal de
cision can be taken until the meeting ot the
various boards on the 21 at; but it toler
ably certain that the expedition will re-start
The piospects of the Atlantic cable were
the prevalent topic.
The report of the Great Eastern had a
tavorable effect on the shares, which rallied
fiom 1 1-4 to 1 1-2. There was much differ
ence of opinion as to the prospect of recover
ing the cable; but generally the feeling was
that it might be done.
CAPTAIN ANDERSON ON THB CABLE.
Captain Anderson of the Great Eastern, In
a lelier, says it will require ten months to
provide proper gear for lifting the Atlantic
cable and to make the necessary repairs to
the Great Eastern. He suggested that the
new cable should be made and laid In May
next, and the old one be then picked up and
repaired- He has every confidence In the
future success of the cable, but thinks It

wholesale Poisoning by a Boarding
house Keeper in Pittsburg,
A PENNSYLVANIA BORGIA.
[From the Pittsburg Post, August 26.)
As we remarked on Friday, a saturnalia
of crime appears to be passing over the land.
On Thuisday evening a middle aged woman
named Mrs. Grinder, who has resided for
some time upon Gay alley, near river avenue,
Fourth ward, Alleghany city, was before the
mayor, dressed in deep mourning, charged
with latceny. The mayor demanded $1,500
bail, which to us seemed exhorbitant, and
our sympathies ran with the woman, al
though we suspected that something beside
larceny was lurking behind the information,
Ou Friday a development took place which,
if proven, will certainly exhibit a state of
facts that will brand this woman as one of
the most expert and systematic poisoners
that has turned up recently. On the charge
of larceny she entered bail, a well-known
citizen becoming her surety, and she was
discharged, although kept under surveillance
by two officers, during the night.' But In the
morning it was discovered that the bird bad
tit least been taking an alriug, If she had not
absolutely flown. The baiiman, who Is a
gentleman of more goodness of heart, per
haps, titan discretion, was annoyed at the
circumstance, and interested hliuself to pro
curing officers to at once make an at rest.
She was destined to the custody of Mayor
Lowry, when a gentleman named George A.
Carulhers, employed in the dry goods estab
lishment of James M. Carr, ot Alleghany,
appeared at the mayor’s office and preferred
an information against a woman named Mar
tha Grinder, residing in Gay alley, near Ri
ver aveuue, Fourth ward, Alleghany, charg
ing her with murder, and administering poi
son with Intent to kill.
Mr. Cambers allege* that on Tnes r
evening, June 27, last, hi* wile, Mary.jv
Caruthers, was Invited and did take tea w*“
Mrs. Grinder, who resides next door to hi”’
and that shortly after she returned to h* 1
home she was taken with riolent purging
and vomitiug. which m* prostrated liei that
she was coo tl bed to her bed. The next day,
however, she partially recovered, when lie
took her to the country for the purpose of
recuperating her hosllh. He returned im
mediately, and on Friday evening following
also took supper at Mrs. Grinder’s house
He, too, was taken with a similar spell, only
of a more aggravated character, and was
compelled to remain in the house lor several
weeks, the physician in attendance giving up
all hopes of his recovery ou two occasions.
Mrs. Grander was, during his illness, ap
parently very kind and unceasing in her at
tentions, frequently preparing his food In
the meantime, however, his wife was tele
graphed for, and returned to the city.—
Through her ministrations to his disease he
recovered, although terribly shattered in
health aud constitution.
On the 15th of July Mrs Caruthers again
took supper with Mrs. Grinder, and was
again suddenly 111. A physician was seut for,
who gave her some medicine, but shortly
after left, remarking that she would sood re
cover. Mrs. Grinder was requested to wait
on her and nurse her, wbicu she did, and the
lady, instead of recovering, grew worse.—
The physician could not account for her sud
deD change, but again prescribed, and from
that time became regular in his attendance.
Mrs. Caruthers lingered until the Ist of
August, when she died, and was taken to
Newcastle for burial.
Mr. Caruthers, after the burial of his wife,
returned to the city, and shortly after leased
his house and sold a portion of his furniture
to a geutlemun named Johnson. On the 15th
instant, Mr. Johnson took possession, and
his wife, Amanda Johnson, visited the house
for the purpose ot cleaning and preparing it
for occupation. She worked away until noon,
when Mrs. Grinder kindly invited her to
dine with her. After some persuasion, Mrs.
Johnson complied with her request, went
into the house and partook ot a hearty dinner,
But a few minutes elapsed after she left the
table until she was seized with spams, which
continued until late in the night. Owing to
her excessive prostration she remained in
Mrs. Grinder’s house for several days, during
which time she appeared to get better. At
length her own house was fitted up and she
was removed in Mrs. Grinder continued in at
tendance, preparing her food, and the lady
again became worse.
Mr. Caruthers hearing of this case, called
to see Mrs. Johnson, when his suspicions
were aroused, and he informed the physician
in charge of his belief that Mrs. Grinder was
administering poison. The doctor gave or
ders that Mrs. Johnson should not eat any
food prepared by Mrs. Grinder, but that it
should be retained for examination. This
was done, and a chemical analysis made,
which shewed conclusively the presence of
some mineral poison. Mrs. Johnson is uow
better, and will probably recover. Her hus
band lias also preferred an information,
charging Mrs. Grinder with administering
poison with intent lo kill.
Mrs. Grinder has heretofore borne an irre
proachable character, and is well known in
both cities, where she has pursued the occu
pation of nurse for many years. She is per
haps forty years of age and rather preposses
sing iu appearance.
It is also alledged that during the past few
mouths several persons have died at her
house, all in a mysterious manner. We were
unable to learn the names of hut two, a Mrs.
Gallagher and a brother ot Grinder.
Mrs. Caruthers is a native of Newcastle,
where he married a Miss Mary E. Phillips,
and only removed to the city a short time
ago. Her body will be exhumed, and a
chemical anavsis made of the stomach in a
few days. Mrs. Grinder was arrested and
committed tor a hearing on Monday next, at
The motives for such a refinement of de
viltry, if proven upon the woman, has not
transpired ; and until she is proven guilty
we should hold the woman innocent. But
it appears, as we have stated, that an epi
demic of crime is raging at the present time.
