Com..--The demand for coal is sleekin g
oil a little, and the price of Stove and Egg
coal has receded, in order to keep the trade
moving. The fall in stove from the highest
point has reached nearly twO dollars a ton ;
and unless there is a reduction in the recent
advance in wanes, nt the end of the month,
caused by the advance in coal, many of our
operators la find it necessarrto suspend
operations at the close'of this month. A re
duetion in the rates a transportation ought
to take place also after this. month, as they
are higlur now, to Philadelphia than they
were during the ltebellion.--Miners Jeer.
A (InAND 81100TIND MATCII, \ for six tur
keys, took pinee at the White House yester
day afternoon. The first three turkeys re.
quire(' good marksmanship. They were put
singly in a box, so as to expose only the
head and neck as a target. Tlie others were
won alive by shooting at a piece of paste
board, with a white bull's eye in the centre.
Eyerything being prepared by our friend
Edwara A. Mass, landlord of the White
House, who is a capital host, and knows
how to make his guests enjoy themselves,
the fir ing
commenced. The distance was
sixty yards; "off hand" (without rest) with
short target rifles, carrying a small round
ball, at 25 cents a shot.
Fourteen shots were fired at the first three
turkeys before their heads were shot of The
first was won by John Undheim, the second
by Joseph Lutz, and the third by Louis
Swayno. The shooting was excellent.
_co, a mark then took place,
in which the following marksmen, all splen
did shots, participated : Adam Hoff,'Joseph
'Lutz, Adam Faust, Joseph Schmucker, C.
W. F. Hoffeditz, Trexler, - J. Kantner,
Louis Swayne, Nelson Delany, John Ernst
and John Undheim.
The first'of the three ; remaining turkeys
was won by John Undheim, the second by
Adam Faust, the third by Nels9n,Delany.
The prizes then stood as follows: 1 .
Ist and 4th turkeys, won by John Und
heim ; 2d by Joseph Lutz; 8d by Louis
Swayno; sth by Admit Faust; oth by Nelson
- The beat shot during the match was made
by John Undheim, the next best by Nelson
Delany, and the third best by Joseph Lutz.
Although the wind was too strong ntid fit
ful, and the light varyihg, causing most of
the shots.to go slightly to the left, the shoot
ing was excellent,
Our friend A. S. Witman, late of the
Daily Times, who acted as marker, has our
thanks for favors rendered.
