Tug coal business of our city still continues
brisk, though people do, not buy mere than they
really need for a short time. It Is generally be
lieved that the highest point in prices bats ,been
reached, and hence, people buy sparingly. We
hope it will not be long before wo can report a, de
cline, as the cold winter is upon us, and as wages
are low, there must naturally bo much suffering
among the poor. In New York things have al
ready taken a turn in favor of consumers, and no
doubt there would be much of a reduction if the
coal were not in. tho "clutches" of speoutatore,
who a few weeks ago, bought up all the coal they
could reach ; and at the same time entered into
co-partnership with the operators In a scheme to
hold or raise prices; and now in order to hold
their heads above failure, they hold on to present
prices with a determination, like , rats to ,the sink;
ing ship. Speculation, as We have before stated,
is at the bottom of the extortionate prices,, we
must now ;my for everything we eat and wear. and
we do hope a move will soon be made, on the part
of the working classes, to have a law passed to
prevent it.
The Coal )r ado from Schuylkill county last
week reached 131,008062 tons, of which 95,c01i
tons were shipped by railroad, and 35,483 10 ton&
by , Canal. The demand is slacking off a little at
New York,and egg and stove coal have declined in
price while the rates of transportation' have a&
vanced considerably.

Clewell, 430er Penn street, a curiosity in the
shape of the Berke County Court Housei
built of waling candy. . It hi feet high, mut
3 feet wide, and is a true resemblance of that
building. It is really a curiosity worth sew

COMPLAINT.—Very often people coma to
PA and complain that certain pace Offieers
do not do their duty, and that at &any plaCes
the city authorities should , make repairs or
impovements. ; If we hod the honov off'
being • rather of the - City, complaints
would come to the right person, but as it is,
they should go to the ?davit-of the city. We
guarantee His Honor will hear them, and see
that 'batters are set right wherever needed!
Of course, if it comes under our observa4
Lion, or if , we are convinced that o ffi cers,
the Mayor, or any. other. man, neglects his
`cluty, tee shalt be after him with a shall);
stick, but we cannot be .responsible for the,
petty complaints that are.daily made to us.
we live wo are more than ever convinced
that nine-tepths of the misfortunes which'
