NEW BL00MFIELD, PENN'A.
Tuesday, Avgust 16, 1870.
Elections will be hud this (all to fill
the vacancies made by expiration, of the
tonus of the following Senators :
Messrs. Nale, Stinson, Jjindcrninn,
Brown, Davis, Randall, JJeek, M'lutirc,
Robinson, Howard, and Lowry, represent
ing respectively the Third, i'it'th, Sixth,
Seventh, Eighth, Ninth, Fourteenth,
Twenty-First, Twenty Fifth, and Twenty
Ninth Senatorial districts. Four of the
retiring Senators were elected ac Republi
cans and seven as Democrats, fourteen
Republicans and seven as Democrats
holding over to the next Senate.
Value of Cent and Firo Cent Pieces.
The one and two cent coins now in cir
culation are composed of Copper, 95 per
ocnt.r and Tin and Zinc, 5 per cent.
The weight of the five cent coin is
77.16 grains; the value of the Nickel is
$1.20 per pound in gold, and the Copper
twenty-four cents in currency per pound.
The weight of the three cent piece is 30
grains; the two cent 90 grains, and the
one cent 48 grains, from which we readily
determine that the value of the five cent
coin is $0.00783, of the three cent
$0.00409, the two cent $0.0041, and of
the one cent $0.00205. We may there
fore say that in round numbers a five cent
piece is worth nearly 8 mills, and that 20
of theui, or one dollar in face value, are
' worth as metal less than 16 cents; and
that one hundred one cent coins are worth
as metal 20 cents.
The New Pension Law.
The second Auditor has issued a circu
lar calling the attention of soldiers and
otliers to the following facts, and to cor
rect certain misapprehensions in regard
to the action of the last Congress : Sol
diers" who enlisted under the act of July
4, 1864, are not entitled to the unpaid in
stallments of bounty under section 1, act
nf March 2, 18G9, and decioion of At
torney General of Jauuary 19, 1870, un
less their discharge certificates declare
' them to be discharged by reason of expi
ration of term of service. The bill which
passed the House of Representatives,
giving eight and one-third dollars per
month to each soldier during his actual
sorvice, not having passed ihe Senate, is
not a law. , No law granting bounty was
enacted by the Forty-fint Congress nor
has any such law been enacted since the
act of March 3, 1869.

A terrible buttle appears to have been
fought between the French nnd Prus
sians, on the lith hist. In this engage
ment fully 200,000 troops were brought
into action. The result was a very deci
ded victory for the Prussians. The loss
oLlifg, was terrible on both sides, and in
audition to this loss, the French had ?out
10,000 taken prisoner. This battle was
fought near Woerth, which is a small
town, about twelve miles south-west of
Wcissenbourg, the samo distunco south
east of Bitche and some nine miles from
" llagenau. It stands almost in the centre
of the triangle formed by llagenau,
Uitche, and Weissenbourg. It is almost
at 'the bafte of the Vosges Mountains the
surrounding country being exceedingly
hilly. JJy the dispatch of tho Crown
Prince of Prussia, which says that Mar
shal Macjlahon 8 army retired upon
JiUche, wo are placed in doubt whether
tho French line of communication be
tween, that place and llagenau is intact
or not.- Should it bo broken, a new 'line
is possible between Bitche and lirumat.lt.
The report of this fight, and tho result,
brought political matters to a crisis, and
compelled a chance in the ministry. All
; the political factions unite for the saving
of 1" ranee, Irom regard to the honor ot the
" nation not from respect to Nopoleon,
who is fast losing ground in the esteem
of the people. As matters now stand,
. another battle is imminent at any mo
How $50 are Made out of $41.
A very ingenious trick, by which a
gang of swindlers are making money by
mutilating mtional bank-notes of the
denomination of five dollars, has recently
come to our notice. The dodge consists
in making ten bills out of nine, and is so
managed that there is but one pasting to
each of tho manufactured notes. The
nine whole bills are taken, and from tho
right of the first, one-tenth is sliced off;
from the right of tho third thrco tenths,
and so on to the number nine, from which
nine-tenths are taken from the right, or
what amounts to the same thing, one
tenth from the left. Number one is
pasted to the residue of number two, from
which two-tenths had been taken, these
two-tenths arc made to answer tho place
of the three-tenths takeu from number
three, and so on through. Thus nine
five-dollar notes arc completed, making
the original nine, with a tenth gone from
the left as a tenth note. It will be seen
that but a tenth is gone from each bill
aud iu a different place on every one
and a little ingenious pasting makes the
loss imperceptible to ordinary observers.
It is certain that largo numbers ot these
mutilated bills have been put in circula
tion, aud our readers will do well to look
out for them. Tho rogues who have car
ried out the fraud were cunning in selec
ting the denomination they did. Larger
bills would have been more closely scruti
nized, and smaller ones would not be so
remunerative. The department will not
redeem a bill which bears evidence on its
face that it has been tampered with, and
we advise our friends to scrutinize their
five-dollar bills closely. l'ihburg Even
The Outfit of French Soldiers.
Though the foot soldier has a much
lighter weapon in the Chassepot than in
the old muzzle loader, he still has to car
ry on his back and shoulders a weight oi
about seventy pounds French, that is,
upwards of one third of the regulation
weight carried by a sumpter mule. I irst
there is the Chassepot, seven and a half
pounds ; the sword, bayonet, and Bcab
bard, three pounds ; ten pounds of amu
nition, distributed partly in two pouches
and partly in his knapsack ; a pair of
shoes ; a four-pound loaf of bread ; a can
vas bag slung over the left shoulder, and
containing any creature comforts tho man
may have procured. Over the knapsack
first, a great-coat; secondly, a blanket;
thirdly, his share of the canvas for the
te.iile d'ubri, aud sticks for tho same ;
and fourthly, a huge camp kettle. Inside
the knapsack a second pair of trousers,
combs, brushes, needles, thread, buttons,
a pair of gloves, a couple pairs of socks,
and three shirts; in addition, a flask, ca
pable of containing about a quart of liq
uid is flung over the right shoulder. A
long march with such a weight must in
capacitate all but the very strongest men ;
and it is only too easy to understand how
it happens that knapsacks and impedi
ments are invariable dropped the moment
the first shot is fired. In the French
army the practico is generally to order
tho men to lay down their knapsacks on
going into action, but tho stamina of tho
men has been tried to the uttermost be
fore they get up to the front by the carry
ing of such monstrous loads. Picked
men may stand it, but it is sufficient to
look at an average regimeut of the line
after a few miles' marching to form an
opinion of this vicious system of over
loading. Fearful Punishment in China.

His crime is kidnapping children, lie

a hole in the top, his toes barely touching

him every day, laughing and jeering at

of broken b: icks in the cage, and at times
he would try, by standing tiptoes on one
foot, to bring the broken bricks together
with the other, so he could raise himself
up a little aud easo tho weight from his

The Remarkably Hot Summer The Solar
Spots to Blame for it.
One of t ie most reuiui kablo spot-clus
ters ever seen on tho sun is now visible
on that side which is turned toward
us, and situated in about 25 degrees of
suh latitude. An observation taken at
6 o'clock, a few afternoons since, showed
a group of fourteen spots, most of them
small, but the central one very large.
The principal spot was intensely black,
and shaped something like a minnie bul
let, the uxle being nearly parallel to the
sun's equator ; it was about 1 1 ,000 miles
broad by 20,000 miles in length. Around
it was a monster penumbra, its outline
corresponding almost exactly with that of
the spot proper, except at the apex of the
bullet-shaped mass, where it flowed off,
forming a wavy tail, which extended ful
ly 100,000 miles, running east, and then
curving round to the uorth.
The tail portion enclosed three of the
smaller spots, and just touched the outside
of two others. The appearance of tho
pcnunibra in the telescope can best be
likened to that of a closely woven spider's
web, which had been thickly strewn over
with dust particles. The diameter of the
penumbra at its broadest part was a little
more than 28,000 miles, and its total area
750,000,000 of miles, or one part in 880)
of tho total apparent surface of tho sun.
A Just Sentence.
Recently in the Quarter sessions,
Judge Paxson imposed sentence on John
W. Baldy, alias Welsh, and W. II. Dun
can, for the outrage on Miss Jervis on
South Broad street, Phila., on the night
of July 14th. The Judge said:
" 1 am very sorry for both of you, and
it pains me to see in such a position men
like yourselves, in the prime of life, who
might and ought now to bo useful mem
bers of society. But you have been guil
ty of the most heinous and brutal crime
that has for years disgraced tho history
of this city. Never has the community
been more aroused than by your foul deeds,
and in some communities you would have
met with a more summary judgment
then the one you are now to receive, you
would have been suspended at the end of
a rope from tho limb of the nearest tree.
But we aro a law-abiding people, and
though our most violent passions are
aroused and our dearest sentiments out
raged, wo submit to tho regular course
ot the law for tho vindication of our
wrongs. Your crimes are grave and your
punishment . shall be correspondingly

The universality of the demand for the Tain
Killer, is a novel, Interesting, and surprising fea
ture in the history of this medicine. Its " fame has
gone out," Into every quarter of the habitable
globe. The Fain Killer is now regularly sold in
largo and steadily increasing quantities, not only
to general agents in every State and Territory of

and other South American States to the Sandwich

African lands; to Australiaaml Calcutta, liangoon
und other places In India.' It has also been sijnt to
China, and wo doubt If there is any foreign port or
inland city in Africa oi Asia, which is frequented
by American and European missionaries, travellers
or traders, into which the Fain Killer has not been
introduced and been sought after.
