The Canadian newspapers are complain
iig that no methed hus yet been discovered
whereby Canadian petroleum tan bo refined
so as to equal that of Pennsylvania for Illu
minating purposes The Canadian petro
leum emits disagreeable odor, and Injures
the tea, sugar, and oilier goods, near wbith
it may be stored. The duty of fifteen per
cent, imposed upon Pennsylvania petroleum
prevents its consumption by the Canadians,
and a demand bas been extensively made
for the repeal of this heavy tax upon-an ar
ticle which Is essential to the comfort of ev
ery family. In New Brusswiok, the coal
oil work works bavo been closed, and the
bad-smelling petroleum from the Province
of Ontario is the only substitute. Hence
the newspapers insist that a more adective
plan for refining the oil should be attempted
or that the duty of fifteen per cent, upon the
foreign article should be removed.

lieve that in thin deviation th river is only
returning to a bed oa the north side of the
highlands of Shantung, through which it
formerly flowed; and according to Chinese
records, It has repeatedly shifted its chan
nel, sometimes divided by a delta, some
times entering the sea at a single mouth.
Sheep multiply so prodigiously iu Aus
tralia, that the boiling down ol the animals

Four hundred sheep are cut to pieces and
thrown into a big boiler, steam from another
boiler is turned on, and the carcasses are re
duced to pulp; the tallow rises to the top, and
is drawn eff through large tups into barrels
for export The gravy and other juices, the
remains of the meat, aad the bones, which
are so softened as to crutubto easily in the
bauds, are given to pigs. Four thousand
sheep are boiled down a day.
