Stxaut,Aq.—We were shown, yesterday
morning,..a number of small I;ranches cut
from Apple, Peach and Plum trees which
contained leaves and ' blossoms precisely
similar to those which aro put fotth:by these
fruit trees in the Spriug, These specimens
were shown its by Mr. U. Strickler, of Con.
Aestoga township, this county, who states
that the foliage of the , trees in that section,
having been destroyed by ithe caterpillars,
during the Summer season, they . are putting
. leaSies and blossoms again this fall.
This is certainly a very singular
stance, and we are entirely unable to se
count why Nature should at this late period
in the Autumn, endeavor to produce that
fruit which the ravages of an insect prevent
ed it from producing in prOper season.—
Lancaster Intelligencer.
Avei.v,a.—lt is stated that the apple crop
in the section of the State lying north of
Dauphin county is quite large. We are told
that at Sunbury they are a drug upon the
market at ono dollar per bushel, and from
that town to Milton the venders of the fruit
can find but few buyers at seVenty-five coins
per bushel. In our city, York State apples
bring $6 and $0 per barrel, Containing about
two bushels and .three peeks, and large
quantities hre sold. Dealers get them. by
the hundred barrels at a time. • In the East
and West,.we believe, the very good,
and considerable quantities have already
been shipped in barrels to the New York
and Philadelphia marketii, where they are in
demand. We do hope our farmers will pay
more this excellent fruit, as the
demand for it is increasing yearly, and noth
ing that,they can raise will pay bettor.

• Affairs in Wall street are in a mixed condition.
The. street is agitated with rumors now - on the
"bull" side, but chiefly in aid of the "bears." The
suspension of two banks in the West, ono in Mil
waukie, and the severe losses known to have fallen
on Western banks and dealers from the heavy de
cline in the prices of Western produce and Western
railway clique shares, have added to the uneasi
ness:among out bankers and money-lenders. The
stock-Jobbing cliques and their friends are said to
have hypothecated their clique stocks with nation
al banks in the West to an amount which has
brought them into a critical condition, and that
they are pressing the cliques to return these loans.
The clique stocks have boon carried since August
by time loans frpm German baakeis in this qtly
and l bythe aid of Western national banks and bank
ers. The wi(hdrawal of these permanent loans
will throw the cliques on the general money mar
ket for supplies to carry their load. Tho banks
aro in no condition to assist speculators in carrying .
stocks. All their surplus funds will be required
fee the legitimate wants of trade. The legal tend
ors in the New York City banks have not boon so
low as at present since October, 1865, and the drain
upon ; them will be greater than ever before to
meet the demand for greenbacks to the Southern
States. The ease in the money market since Sat
urday is only temporary, arising from the unlock
ing an&putting in circulation of about $5,000,000 of
greenbacks by the bear clique, and at the same
time from a decreased demand owing to the les
sened transactions on the Stock Exchange. The
reports. semi-official and otherwise, in' regard to
the re-Issuing by the government of the cancelled
$44,000M greenbacks and three per oent. cortifi-
Sestet; are not likely to be realized. There is no
warrant in law for any such notion on the part of
the Treasury Department, and there is nothing in
the present condition of affairs to render necessary
a violation of law by tho Secretitry oftbe Treasury.
Mr. McCulloch is not called upon by law or sound
policy to assist either bulls or boars in Wall street.
The Stook Exchange is passing through a liquidat
ing crisis which will Swoop out of existence the
stock-bubbles engineered by the cliques, and the
more rapidly this Is carried out the better it will
be for Wall street and •its permanent interests.—
italliatives to stem the natural dovrnward course
of prices on the Stock Exchange to l e sound stand
ard are injurious, because they simply delay that
Which le inevitable, and the sooner it Comes of
course the better, The surplus funds which have
been monopolized by speculators for years
will be then liberated for the use of legitimate
trade and the increase of national wealth. The
sooner the stook jobbing cliques are annihilated
tho bottor it will bo for the mercantile community,
The-suggestions for Inflation by Mr. McCulloch
aro unlawful and are in the interest only of tho
Wall street stook Jobbing cliques.

TIM flour market of the larger cities is dull,there
being no demand other than for home consump
tion. This leaves an abundance of wheat at home.
Although this state of affairs exists,priees seem to
hold out firmly, and it Is not probable that a de
cline will take place until after the holidays,- As
the cold and gloomy winterapproaohes much com
plaint is made in regard to the high price of our
bread. A few weeks ago people anticipated a de
cline to a reasonable figure, but they are disap
pointed. IVagos aro low., and the price of broad is
high. Who must we blame for this? Somebody
certainly lies at the fault of it. It is not because
there is a scarcity of grain I There is more grain
in the country now than ever before, but it is
through speculation, that we are now compelled to
pay $12@13 for a barrel of flour, and there is
no other way to remedy this until we try National
Legislation. Whenever flour is high, it is the cus
tom for everybody to blame the Western farmers.
Ono might as justly blame the coal-miners for the
high price of gas in this city. Even the United
States Economist; in a late article on holding back
grain at the West—stated that for years that jour
nal has "warned farmers and grain -dealers" of the
danger of holding back produce to their own hurt;
that this year they are likely to hold an enormous
supply until the close of navigation ; that, in the
winter, grain can only be sent by railroad, at much
higher freights; and that, although it might be
expected that' this holding back would advance
prices at the East, yet as it is known the supply is
held back, this is not the cue. Wo blame the
"grain-dealers"—that is to say the grain -specu
lators of the West,and not the farmers, for hoard
ing graiti. There have boon two "corners" in the
Chicago grain market within a few months—one in
wheat and the other in - corn—and a halfa dozen
,grain dealers have been pecuniarily
ruined thereby. Many pecitile d(not understand
what "cornering the grain market" means, al
-though there aro few who have not suffered from
the iii effects of it. To effect a "corner" then, it is
only necessary for a body of mon to conspire to
gether to buy five hundred thottsand bushels of
corn or wheat at a certain price, to be delivered on
a certain day, in a certain market, which is capable
of supplying four hundred thousand bushels only
ln That time. It is principally the smart money
drawn from the failure to deliver the ono hundred
thousand bushels that cannot bo obtained, on
which' the conspirators make their profit. Such
operations u these aro not chargeable to the far
nters,-and never can bo prevented by them. But
they ought to be prevented somehow. If State
legislation is ineffectual, National legialation rapt
be tried.

WOMAN / 8 Disenimitamow.—Women gen
erally respect men in proportion as they
possess good and worthy qualities. They
are not fools ; nor are all men. It is worth
while for every man to possess something
worthy the admiraltick of woman ; in other
words, to have adme sort of a po_ssession,
more or less—and more, if possible, rather
than less—that is intrinsically' valuable.
Good looks come of nature; but almost every
thing else comes df man's own effort. Wo
men have no respect for mere dummies and
figure-heads—shells and skeletons—but they
like realities, We repeat, women aro no
tools, although they are very near theta,

IMPOItTANT TO 11611,OERS.—The introdue
tion, in some sections, of corrugated iron
for various building purposes, and its do
cided superiority over any other form, is
largely attracting the attention of builders.
As the added strength of corrugated over
plain iron results from folding it, so that
its resistance is wore edgewise than from
a fiat surface, it is clear that the more close
the folds the greater will be the stiffness of
the, iron. It is contended that a beam with
eprrugation half an inch in width from
centre to centre, and four indica deep, is
much stronger than a solid beam of the
same size, and weighing over ten tiling as
much. If this be correct—and scientific ex
periments have demonstrated' that it is—the
adoption of -corrugated iron will be a vast
saving of material, combined with ' he Secur
ing of great additional strength. The
prevenient has been satisfactorily applied to
the entire outside of buildings, rendering
them fire•proof, and at the same time giving
them a neat and showy appearance.—Phila,
Evening Star.
.Reported by Louts Riehards r -Attorney at
Law, 6130 Court .Street.
Comm. vs. Charles H. P. RePpert, Henry
K. Treichler, Jesse Eschbach, Jeremiah
Kohs, and Nicholas Kehs. The defendants
were indicted nailer the 110th section of the
Aet of July 2d, 1889, known as •the General
Election Law of Pennsylvania, for the, riot
ous disturbance f the peace at the polls of
l i o
Hereford towns ip, on the occasion of the
October election. According to the gener
al testimony of the Commonwealth, the de
fendants,who are all residents of the adjoin
ing township of Washington , came to the
tavern of Mahe' Geary, who're the election
wrs being held, about 2 o'clock in the after
noon. They hurrahed for the candidates of
their choice and took a drink at the bar.
'Ono of the party then became involved in a
quarrel with an old German of opposite po
litical predilections, in the courde of whlth,
according to the statement df one of the wit
l'atsses, the-fernier attempted to kink his op
illonent. These occurrences disturbing the
lection officers in the adjoining apartment,
, wiry S.Walker t the constable of the town
ipovhose duty it was to preserve the peace,
was appealed to by the citizens to restore
order. He accordingly repeatedly requested
the defendants to behave; themselves, but
they defied him, and finally, a ft er throe re
monstrances, ie constable put two of them
out, the rest following. .
This prosecution was brought by the con
stable, and the indictment was laid, in the
language of the Act before referred to, for
''riotously disturbing the peace at an elec
tion." . The Court in charging the jury stated
that in order to convict of this offence under
this indictment, something more must bo
proved than mere noise,tnmult and.disorder
—something more oven than the violence
of an assault and battery', ,or •of an a ff ray.
There must be those elenients of violence
and threatening demonstration which would
be calculated to intimidate the citizens
about the polls and obstruct the business of
the occasion, otherwise the occurrence
would not amount, in its legal features,
to a riot. It was for the jury to say whether
the disturbances here were such as
were likely to produce those consequences.
In case of acquittal the question ofeosts was
to be disposed of under the well known rules
of law, which the court reiterated.
Thejury acquitted the defendants, but di
rooted that they pay the costs. Seine twen
ty-fivo witnesses were examined in this case,
and the trial occupied the greater part of the
day. D. Ermentrout for Comm. Tryon
and J. 8, Richards for deft-,
Edward Williams (colored) and. David
