James J. Brooks sworn : In September
was a Revenue Detective under the United
States Government, commissioned by C. Dela

September I was acting as such detective in
this city ; in the early days of September I
.was acting on .Richmond, and also on Front
street and Seethed street; from South Front,
near Shippen street, as far as Callowhill;
it was mainly on that part, although my busi
ness may have called me to other points ; my
mornings were principally spent around Front
street', and in the afternoon up Richmond way;
I passed up and down Walnut street in my
visitations ; I went, through Second street
some the office to which I. reported was on
Library street, near Fifth; I have been in

after o'clock. ,

RA i1.110.11> SAFETY SIGNALS—A CAPITAL
INVENTION—APPLICATION OF ELECTRICITy.
—yesterday, ti party of gentlemen—railroad
men and journalists, chiefly—went to Trenton
- upon the Invitation of Gen. Joshua T. OWen
and J. Phillips, Esq., to examine the opera
tion of a new safety signal,worked by electric
ity, and designed for application .to railroad
switches, drawbridges, &c. The inventor of
the system is. Mr. Robert Stewart. an accom
plished electrician, the . Superintendent bf the
-Telegraphie-Department-of—theilamden_aod__
Amboy Railroad COmpany. The, company
lave placed one of these signals t Trenton,
to test it, with the intention to use them upon
all the roads over which they have control, if.
it should be found perfect. The following de
scription will give the reader some notion of
the character of the invention;
To a switch a short distance above the de-
pot the electrical apparatus was attached. The
instrument, a small affair concealed by a brass
box, is fastened against the upright support
to the lever of the switch ; to it is connecteci a
telegraph wire running , underneath the gin
,
face a few feet to telegraph poles ? where it is
attached to insulators. The wir stretches
from pole to pole until it reaches the signal
station, a small building containing the bat
teries and other necessary apparatul for work
ing the signal.
The letter is placed on the top of the house
at an elevation of about eight or ten feet,'and
resembles a ..miiiiature building. The signals
in colors are the same as used for many years.
The red signal is fastened to a square frame so
as to easily lift up and down in the box. When
the switch is displaced the red signal is always
exhibitediand when'it is properly and securely
cloffed the/white signal is displayed.
As before stated, the magnet or instrument
is fastened to the upright of the switch. Pro
jecting from it is a small handle of iron.
When the lever is arranged so as to close the
switcl;' the handle of the magnet presses
against it. This operates on the machinery
and the signal-box as a current of electricity
misses through the wires and sets the ma
chinery in motion, winding around the spin- •
dle a cord. connected with the top of the frame
of the set signal, eausing,lt to raise aboVe the
glass window in front of the box, and disap
pear behind the upper door. The moment the
switch is displaced, the hold of the handle of
the magnet IS no longer supported by the
lever, and causes the red signal to descend, the
electricity operating the machinery in a simi
lar manner, winding the cord up and support
ing the frame.
The advantages of this invention are that

asked for the whole of that day to prepare.
The course now taken by the Court will give
the time. The special order of the Mayor to
an officer to be in court at 10 o'clock takes the
place of a subptena. "I should like the au

OYSTERS.—Thiti business is more active than
. it was at this time last year. 'The bivalves are
in better order than for several yearg past.
More will probably arrive by rail ; during the
present ' season than at anytime hitherto, al
though there is no diminution in the number
of boats. An immense number-of oysters are

IlErAvEn.—Second street, south of Mifflin,
,extending more than half a mile, was paved
two or three years ago with , coal ashes and
cobble .stones ; the latter of course did not long
retain their position. The -work of repaving
was ordered by the Righway .Department
some time ago, and gravel being introduced
in place of ashes, the street is now well paved
and likely to last for years.
THE Sarrri.En CLocs.—For some time past
the Shiftier clock has stopped, and the tone .
of its bell has not awakened a single echo in
recording passing time. The reason is that
during one of the recent heavy rain storms the
wind blew the water into the works and rusted
them. The work of cleansing off the rust will
be finished in a few days, and the - proper ar
rangements will be made 10' protect the ma
chinery from the weather.

the Navy Yard a day or two since. l'slonday
next is pay-day, at which tithe it is expected
that five lundred mechanics and laborers will
be placed on the retired list. There is very
little-work to be done in the Yard at present,
and probably it will be slack during,: the
winter.

woman, nicely dressed, jumped into tlie Dela

GIRARDAVEZTUE BRIDGE.—The footway of
this bridge seems to be in rather a dangerous
condition. Some of the timbers are rotten,
and the flooring in some places shakes' very
much under the tread of passengers.

There'is an immense amount of travel in this

located in'either snrveyed or unaurveyed land
anywhere on the public domain of the United

the 64,000 acres of land, or the $320,000; the .
market price ofthe same ? These figures may
be wrong, but your correspondent. is assured
they are entirely reliable. It is a well-known
fact that this half breed Indian scrip has been
located by the thousand acres throughout the
estern States and Territories. On the sup
position that the foregoing is true, then, not
only the half breed Indians have been:credited
with more than they claimed, but " Uncle

The Mechanics of thipirit.Rapping.
The Pali 'krzette says :
"Those who have been in the habit of list-
ening_with_a_We_and adoration to the solemn
utterances of domestic furniture will readwitli
some .surprise a letter in the Stapdard , from
Mr. W. F. Faulkner,philosophical in.strument
maker, in which he states that for many years
be has had a large sale for spirit-rapning mag
nets and batteries expressly made for conceal
ment under the door,..m.euebards, under ta
bles, and even for the' Ulterior of the centre
support of large round'tables and boxes. He
has supplied also quantities ofprepared wire to
be placed Under arpets and oil-cloth,or under
the wainscot and gilt beading around ceilings
and rooms. All these, he says, were obviouSly
used for apiet,rapping ; and-the - connection
to each rapper and battery was to be made by
means of a small button, like those 'used for
telegraphic boll-ringing purposes, or by means
of a brass-headed or other nail under the car
pet, at particular patterns known to the
spiritualist. These rappers, he adds, when
carefully placed, are calculated to mislead the
most wary. Then there are spirit-rapping
magnets and,batteries constructed expressly
for tlmpocketl,and these, he tells us, will of
'course rap at any part of the room. He ha's also
made drums and bells which Will beat and
ring at command ; but these two latter are
not,so frequently used as the magnets are, be
cauSe they are too easily defected. We quite
believe Mr. Faulkner, but we should like to
know - w 12,0 gave him the order for all these
!..v.i.res; magnets and:batteries."
