YE take the following from a sketch, by

recently been On a trip through a portion of

"One bf the niost.interestib'g and pleasant

located near Ckurchville, which/ derives; its
name from the venerable and sacred edifice.
This Church, known as "The Church of the
Blessed Sacrament;" was founded over one
hundred years ago, and the title to a _large
tract of land with which it was endowed was
obtained from William Penn himself.
Though originally small,it has been enlarged,
improved and beautified, from time to time,
and will now compare with our largest and
finest churches in Reading. The pews will
comfortably seat over'. ono thousand persons.
Its interior is richly adorned with sacred
emblems and works of art. A very ancient
Flemish painting of "The Last Supper," in
a good state of preservation, graces the
Altar, and we were informed by the vener
able Father BALLY, who for thirty-two years
has had charge of this Church, that ono of
the first elaborate efforts of the celebrated
Benjamin West, was a copy of this painting,
for which ho received a large sum. Mr.
West's father resided in this vicinity, and it

resulted disastrously except to stock i speenlators,
and, as a general rule, obligations wero met with a
degree of promptitude that indicated a command
of means on the part of the operators that could
scarcely be ontiolpated.
There Is a great diversity of opinion prevailing
respecting the interference of the Treasury De
partment wlth'the regular course of financial af
fairs. but the Immediate effect of the re-issuing of
greenbacks by the Department is decidedly re-as
suring. The wants of the merchants are limited
and the banks are disposed to accommodate them
to the extent of their means. It is highly probable
that the Government will only be obliged to place
a limited amount of currency in circulation, but the
very knowledge of its determination to resort to
this action has produced a very favorable effect.
There was a firmer feeling at the Stock Doard,

but subsequently prices advanced under false re
ports that the Treasury was buying bonds and the
receipt from Washington of a rehash of the semi
official stock -jobbing despatches of Friday, Satur
dot pnd Suriday last, each oi o contradicting the
other more or less, but alldesigned to bull the

in order that this Treasury ring might put monoy

The ,stock makot was alternately strong and

fore, these will have to decline heavily, and wo
warn the publio against buying them and caution
the banks against 'lending on them, for they aro
liable to fall away as rapidly as Mitwaukie and St.

equal to fifty par cent. The ,progress of demorali;
ration has only been temporarily stayed by the
stook•jobbing canards from Washington, and be.
fore the present year expires there will ho sad
havoc in Wail street. We aro entering upon a
period of financial depression like that which Eng
land passed through prior to the resumption of
specie payments, and prices must gradually tend
nearer to specie values, and the bull cliques that
have boon doooying the public into their snare for
a long time past will be engulfed in ruin. Money
was in good supply at seven per cent, in currency
to first class borrowers, with exceptional transac
tions at this rate in gold to weak borrowers, but as
the banks aro remitting largely to the South and
Southwest, the money market will naturally wo4k
snore active as the season advances, and the &F.

precursors of misery—which, in fact, they
are to a great extent—they bring with them
many pleasures, such as balls, parties,, so

these aro in prospective, and the season will
no doubt be one of unusual enjoyment.
These festivities rob winter of much of its
disagreeableness. Permit us to edd'm con

Profs.- Sehitene and Borg.; a Waltz t original
composition of Prof. Scheme, was given with
splendid effect by the Prof. and Mr. Rhoads,
and_Prof. Berg's brilliant piano solo could
not be surpassed. The musical burlesque
"A Sleighing Party"' (by . Chwatal) executed
by the Mwnnerchor in costume, was receiv
ed with the - greatest delight, and had to be
repeated: The four tableaux vivants—
"Wacht and Rhein"—"Sehiller's °lecke"
—"Columbia and Germania; and "Gating ,
en" were tastefully ( grouped and arranged:
The last one, a very comicalpiece, Balled
forth a storm; of applause ankof course, had
to' be repeated. The first part of the festival
tieing thus happily concluded, the seats were'
'tilltriedly, removed, and the young and the
fair soon indulged in the:enjoyment "on the
light fantastic toe" till nigh on to the dawn
of day. , • •
These pleasant entertainments of our Ger

AN OBSERVATORY IN READIN4I.-- 2 111V01101
the kind invitation °flan T. A. Willson, of
the firm of Messrs. T. A.-Willson Co - ., 524
Penn street, we have had the pleasure of
Seeing their scientific mode Of,taking time
'from the sun ,• and wo think that a descrip
tion of it w ould bo l interOsting to ,our cloud.
Messrs. Wilson having felt the necessity
of having'a standard time by which the own
ers of fine watches and clocks can set and
regulate them, knowing that the time they
sot and compare by is correct, they have, at
some expense, erected on the top of their
elegant building, No. 524 Penn street, an
Observatory, on which nro placed the 1111C08•
surf instrunients which are used in this truly
The observatory is of an octagonal shape,
and . erected in the most permanent man
ner, it being arranged •. with a sliding
roof, which can ho removed at will, and used
for observing the transit of the sun and fixed
stars ; also doors to open at any. desired
.In the centre of the building' is built a
solid pier of masonry, in which are imbedded
large iron bars, to which• the bed•plate of
the transit instrumt4 ia fastened. It is of
the greatest impartanCo to have a solid body
to place the instrument on, for 'the least vi•
bration or shaking would cause aw error in
the observation ; consequently the floor is so
arranged as not to touch the pier, thus rend
ering it perfectly isolated from everything
Tho transit instrument is'a piece of splen-
did workmanship, and was made to their or•
der. It has all the latest improvements,among
which is a perforated axis, graduated rid
ing level, Vernier scale. The perforated
axis is used for illuminating the field of view,
when observing a star which does not give
light sufficient to make the spider-web lines
apparent, and is done by a lamp constructed
for astronomical purposes.
•Wo must not forget to mention an electri-
cal register, which, was constructed by Mr.
T. A. Willson, who has charge of the obser
vatory. -It is intended to assist in the regis
ter of the transit of the sun or star across
the spideriweb lines in the instrument with
more accuracy than the naked eye.
It is done by moans of electricity—i. e.
having a battery connected with an wren•
omical chock, beating seconds, which aro
telegraphed to the observatory, and passed
through a paper register.
It is astonishing to those who
have not witnessed the process of tak
ing time, to see with what a nicety it can he
done, and wevompliment Messrs. Willson &
Co. on their successful endeavor to estab
lish,correct time for their OustOinerS, thus
adding another useful addian to- their

Troubles In Tennebsie.
MEMPIIIs, November 10.-,-A de'spateh, was
received by . General Granger last night from
Prieq,Commissioner of, Registration,
at Mason's Poet, Tipton counth; stating
that the greatest excitement existO there
in consequence of a report that iGeneral
Smith, the defeated candidate for Congress,
was coming there with a largo body of arm•
ed negroes to take depositions for the pur
pose of contesting the election of 'Leftwich,
and asking for troops to preserve order. -
This morning a despatch was received
from Sheriff Slaughter, stating that . about
1000 armed negroes,principally from Fayette
country, had arrived there. The greatest ap
prehension was felt for the safety of the
whites, and many women and children had
left on the train in consequence since noon.
It is impossible ' to communicate by tele
graph with that point, and it is believed the
operator has been driven away.
General Granger despatched fifty men of
the Twenty-fifth infantry, under - three °Ili!.
cers, by a special train to-night, for thi n
purpose of preserving order.
—Dr. Livingstone, it is said, ' may arrive
in England before the new year.
