A NEW l'OWKll PUESS,
which was made expressly for this i.fiiee.
It is of the style known as the Potter

C. Potter, Jr. & Co., of Xew York, and
111 UppCUl'IlIKC ii nd workmanship reflects
much credit on the makers. The case
and rapidity with which it docs its work
must be seen to be appreciated. This
press is arranged to run by steam.
by which the press is to be driven, is an
upright engine of three horse power, and
is furnished by Messrs. Wcimer & Bros ,
of Lebanon, Pa. It is one of the nicest
arranged pieces of machinery that can be
devised for a printing cilice j not only
supplying ample power to drive three
such presses, but taking up little more
room than a stove the use of which is
dispensed with, as the engine supplies
both power and heat.
We have now the only steam power
press in the county and this, with other
improvements we have added, make the
Jioomjieil 'I'lmes office the most com
plete newspaper and job office in this
section of tho State.
Our steam press will run every JIou

WAR NEWS. I
From the various rumors which have
been in circulation during tho week past,
it is evident that tho Prussians are still
having tho best of tho light, though their
success has been attained at a terrible
cost. A dispatch from tho Crown Prince
says : " Our losses in the recent battles
have been so great that I shrink from
learning the actual facts."
The attention of tho Prussian army for
a few days past bus been occupied with
MacMahon, endeavoring to prevent his
effecting n junction with Bazaine, and
consequently the advance on Paris has
been stayed. Later despatches say that
MacMahon is now so effectually disposed
of, that the march on Paris will bo again
resumed. It is? even rumored that his
army is entirely destroyed, and that from
ten to twenty thousand have been driven
on to Belgium soil ami were there dis
armed. The largo surface of country
over which the recent battles have ex
tended, render it difficult to get correct
reports of the events which arc so rapid
There is no doubt that a great part of
the French reverses are owing to that
nation having made no calculation for the
battles boingfought on French soil, but all
their plans were laid with the expectation
of being the invaders, instead of having to
defend their own territory, while tiie
Prussians made their plans to invade
Franco and appear t know all about the
roads, bridges, defences, and resources of
every locality. This must be ono of the
secrets of their great success.
Since the above was written, we have
despatches to the effect that Napoleon has
surrendered his whole army, and that the
war is virtually over. However much
we may hope for the truth of this state
ment, we think it. best to wait for furth
er dispatches before believing it.
The Chinese Question.
The tide of public sentiment is setting
strongly in favor of tho adoption of strin
gent laws at the new session of Congress
forbidding the importation of Chinamen
under contracts engaging them to labor
for a term of years. Similar legislation
was adopted more than half a century
ago to check the importation of the Ger
man redemptioncrs, who had been hired
out to redeem or repay the cost of their
passage to this country; and the hostility
to tho Chinese which is displayed in vari
ous quarters can scarcely fail to induce
analagous action now. The coolie sys
tem, which has bceu tried by several coun
tries has led to the perpetration of many
acts of inhumanity to tho Chinese, and if
all other motives are thrown out of view,
it should not be tolerated in any form. As
particularly exemplified in the Peruvian
guano islands, in Cuba, and in the French
colonies, it united tho infamies of slavery
with the horrors of the slave trade, and
if it was allowed to expand iu this coun
try unchecked by public opinion and
Govemiental interference, it would speed
ily become here, what it has been else
where, the fruitful cause of frightful suf
ferings. The worst phases of this coolie system
have never been tolerated by American
authorities, for our Consuls have at least
prevented the embarkation from China
for our shores of all persons who did not
profess a desire to try their fortunes in
this new world. Tho special point now
aimed at, however, which is the preven
tion of tho transportation hither of Chi
namen whose passage-money is dependent
upon the labors they arc to perform after
their arrival here, will be a more difficult
task than the prevention of the exporta
tion of unwilling emigrants from the
Flowery Kingdom. It will bo comparu
atively easy to deceive a Consul, or to
evado stringent regulations on u poiut
like this, aud perhaps tho best that can
be douo is to pronounce all contracts
made for the proposed purpose not only
null and void, but punishable by fine and
As comparatively few Chinamen bo
longing to tho laboring classes can save
money enough to pay iu advance i'or tho
voyago across the Pacific, such a require
ment would dcKtroy all danger of an ex
cessive influx of these people; und us
white men ulono can be naturalized, there
would bo no serious cause for either po
litical or industrial apprehension in any
quarter if it could bo rigidly enforced.
From the notice this problem is now
receiving tho above which wo copy from
tho Inquirer, being only one of muny on
tho same subject it is evident some de

A Singular Case.
Since the full of tho Pcmbciton Mills
tho city of Lawrence, Mass., has known
no such excitement as that produced on
Saturday, tho JSOth ult., by tho unaccount
able appearance of n, female's features in
a light of glass in tho window of a house
on Broadway. It appears that a few
days previous to the discovery of the phe
nomenon, an elderly lady, after a long
and wearing sickness, had died. The
day succeeding that on which the funer
al occurred, a lady, who was visiting one
of tho tenants of tho same house, in pass
ing saw a figure in tho attic window,
which she instantly recognized ns that of
the deceased lady, and with great con
sternation communicated the fact to the
other occupants of the building, and in a
short time the entire neighborhood was
made acquainted with the strange and
The window of tho room in which tho
woman had died was immediately under
that in the attic, and was the usual sit
ting place oi tho deceased. None pro
fessed to believe a word of the wild story
and were only convinced upon an actual
view with their own eves. A sister of
the deceased, hearing of the matter, visi
ted tho place and pronounced the like
ness to be that of her relative. The only
remainiug members of the family are two
The. excitement momentarily increased
as also did tho crowd iu the street, and
by noon it was so great as to render the
passage of the horse-cars quite difficult.
The inmates tried various means to re
move it from tho glass, but were un
successful, and, with a view of sending
the crowds away, removed the sash to
the rear of the building.
Early on Monday morning another
crowd gathered around the house, and
Dr. William 1). Lamb, u prominent phy
sician, obtained permission to remove the
sash to his office, on Essex street. Hero
it was placed in his window, opening up
on the main business street in the city,
and every one could get a fine view from
below. Tho window was examined by
intelligent and scientific men ; and while
some were of the opinion that it might
be the result ot the action ot lightuiug.
when some person had been sitting near,
others thought tho theory one ot mipos
There is one thing about it, at least,
tliat seems strange, and tliat is that no
face or fiirure is to be seen iu looking out
from the inside. During the day a firm
of photographers, after several attempts,
succeeded iu getting a very good likeness
of the sash aud face it contained.
Experimenting on Whisky.
Dr. Parks of Loudon, has been cxpcrl
meriting on a healthy soldier to find tho
effects of alcohol. He had him first take
no alcohol for six days, then he took in di
vided doses, from 1 to 8 ounccB of pure
alcohol ; thou water for six days and then
for three days twelve ounces of line brandy
containing forty-eight pcr-cent, ot alcohol
Tho effect in modifying weight was in
appreciable. Alcohol produced little
effect on the temperature of tho system,
though slightly raising it. The pulse
was materially affected, rising from 77-5
before alcohol to 94-7 after the largest
dose. Estimating the normal daily work
ot tho ventricles ot the heart as equiva
lent to the lifting of 122 tons a foot, it
was found tliat during the alcoholic peri
od the heart was compelled to lift an ex
cess of HJ-8 tons, aud during the last two
days of 2-i tons, lhe conclusion was
that it was utterly useless in health, and
positively injurious, in larger quantities
than two ounces daily. There seemed to
be indicated an advantage iu its use if
employed in rousing a feeble appetite and
ot exciting a lecble heart.

CHOLERA ! ! !
Tho following letter is from Mr. Woodward, of
St. Louis, to J. N. Harris, Esq., of New London,
Conn. Mr. V. Is a gentleman of high rospectabll
it y, and during the prevalence of the cholera In
St. Louis, watched the result of the application of
tho Pain Killer for this disease, and his testimony
can be relied upon with the utmost confidence :

On the appearance of the Cholera In this city,
such was tho conlldence in tho l'atn hillerasa
reuiedv. that many who purchased it remarked to
nie that they had no fears or dread of tho cholera
as long as thev had the mm killer ny mem. mm
hundreds took It daily as a preventative, for no
person can have a derangement of bowels or di
arrhu'a if they use this medicine. This was the
security and conlldeneo of hundreds acquainted
with it, and when their friends were attacked with

large quantities, and In every ease when it "has
