entertainment which ap
peared to give great pleasure to all the spec
tators, took place at Sixth and Penn streets,
on Saturday afterno,on. Two rather rough
looking Italians entered the bar-room of the
Keystone House, and contrived to raise a
row, when one of them was 'knocked down
by a scientific blow "straight from the
shoulder," and both were ejected._One left,
but the other retailed to go, and - ned some
very unparliamentary language, whereupon
a young and lightly built, but plucky clerk,
."went in" and thlashed him soundly. This
not satisfying the stranger, he "went in" on
his own responsibility a few minutes after
wards, and received another dose of the
same medicine, after which he concluded
that the Keystone was the wrong, place for
rowdies, and. departed. In the scuffle the
clerk received a cut over the eye. which,
hoVrever, was not serious. ‘-The manifest de.
light of the audience proved that many of
the citizens of Reading have, a high appre
ciation of the "arts and sciences."
A PENNY FOR A RAINY DAY.—flow few
comparatively of our laboring classes'real•
ize the importance of laying by something
for a rainy day, and yet such a course is but
the suggestion of prudence. Too many per
sona, unfortunately, are willing to incur the
risk of sickness, want of employment and
other unhoped for but not improbable con
tingencies, and spend from week to week
their entire earnings. This is simply gross
improvidence, especially in the cane of
persons who have families to support, and
whose income is dependent upon their daily
labor. We are aware that it does not sound
generous on our part to come' a hard
working man to practice economy, and yet
the advice is sound and sensible. A very
small sum laid by. each week, with the deter•
mination that it shall not be touched, except
in cries of absolute necessity, soon grows
into a very reseeetable amount; and when
once this practice of setting apart a penny or
a dime or a quarter of a dollar becomes habit
tial, it is scarcely missed from the week's
wages. Last winter, when eighty thousand
persons were said to be out of work in New
York, most of them, it is said, were able to
support themselves from the savings laid by
during more prosperous seasons. Phis is an
instructive fact ; and as our city abounds in
savings institutions of known reliability and
safety,. and in which the smallest sums are
received and interest paid therefor, we can•
not but feel it a duty to urge upon our'read:
era the importance of availing themselves of
the advactages Miley offer, and deposit a por
tion of their weekly earnings in them. A
workingman, With a hundred dollars in a
sound savings bank, enjoys a feeling of inde
pendence and satisfaction which must neces
sarily be a stranger to him wh'ese rent.mark

DAILY: REVIEW OP BUSINESS.
Tat business of our city condones to move &lons
In spite ot the eruptions in business circles In Larg
er elites. There may be some branches of busi
ness dull with us at the present time, while others
are driving establishments to their fullest capacity.
The iron business of our city is brisk; builders
and carpenters have their bands full: the whole-
Mile and retail establishments aruaoing as much
business as usual ; our hat factories are running at
full speed; ttie cotton factory is in operation, and
In fact we hear of no one that is idle for the want
of employment at the present time. Of course.
how it will be in the future, we are not able to,sai,
but it ie not necessary for, our people to be de
pressed. The quiet every-day life of the business
community of our city, partakes but little otthe
activity and excitement of the gold and ,stock
speculators in the larger cities, and whatever
taken place in Philadelphia and blOw York, should
not give tut so much concern. With us business
goes Slowly but steadily, no wild speculations
topipt us, which may mike us rich to-day, and
may leave us poor to-mortow. We go along slowly,
but surely up to the pinnacle of wealth. Dut not eo
in the larger cities, for there speculation runs high
and men's fortunes are made and lost in one day,
hence if an eruption takes place inthe "workings"
of gold and stocks. it falls heavily upon somebody,
and he comes down with a "crash" that is soon
heard all over the country. Thus the cry is her
alded far and near that business is dull, and times
aro in a critical state,slmply because a few specula
tors have failed,and as people are too apt to be de
pressed and influenced by such reporti. they lose
their courage, and will not invest, or drive their
business as before. This is all wrong; as long as
the days are not darker for the future than now,
we have no reason to whine. Dispel &lithe whim
sical ideas of the future hard timmand drive your
business.as long as you can, and if you fail to have
a few less orders this week, don't tell your neigh
bor that business is very dull. This cry of dull
times" has much effect upon the business commu
nity, and as soon as people will make up their
minds that they can get along, even if a dOllOll
gold gatablets do fail, things will move on in their
natural channel, and we will all do our share of
IN Philadelphia, the mn e ey market continues to
improve, and the banks a fire discounting nearly all
the first-class mercantile obligations presented at
the legal rate. On the street the quotations are
007 per cent. for call loans on Government boOs,
and 7(0 per cent. sin mixed securities. The spirit
of speculation, so rampant in New York for some
time past, has materially abated, which has a ten
dency to cause a more contldentfeeling throughout
the entire community, Trade is dull for this period
of the season, with but little probability of any
improvement until the commencement of the new
year. Prices of merchandise, however, fluctuate
comparatively little, and the only marked activity
last al k has been a wild speculative movement
in petr loam of which 180,000 barrels were pur
chased forpresent and forward delivery, at a ma
terial advance. But few of the community have
the remotest idea of the amount of business ef
fected in,this article at that port. The total foreign
export since Jan. let amounts to nearly thirty-six
million gallons, against twenty-six million three
hundred thousand gallons for tho same period last
year I The shipments of the past week alone ex
ceed two million and twenty-two thousand gallons.
There aro twenty-four yeast)]s loading there with
the article, and with quite a number on the way
from neighboring ports for the same purpose.
The business at the Stock Board on Saturday
morning was small, and there was evidently less
disposition to embark in speculative operations.

Let there be a full attendance.
BARN BURNED.-A barn, belonging to Mr.
Samuel Merkle, in Richmond township, was
destroyed by fire last night. A portion of
the live stock was saved. The barn was a
large one and well stocked with hay, grain,
etc., and is a great loss. It is believed that
it was the work of tin incendiary.
ARTRONOMICAL.—Tho satellites of Jupiter
have been recently undergoing interesting
changes. On the 9th instant, at half.past
six, P. M., satellites Nos. 1 and 2 were mov-_
ing across the disc', of, the , planet t reflecting
their shadows. OA the 10th instant,, at nine
o'clock, P. M., satellite No. 2. appeared on
the planet, a little lower than the bolts; its
shadow, and that of No. 1, appeared as dig.
tinct as a black wafer would appear on white
paper. On the 19th, at eight P. M., one
satellite was apparently following the other.
THE Wsmixa.--=-Yesterday was about the
first really cold day we have had this season.
The rain of Saturday morning' andiTriday
night lett the atmosphere damp and dis
agreeable, and the northeast winds of yes
terday made overcoats, mud's and furs in
dispensable. This is the season when there
is the widest field for the .exercise of true
philanthrophy. A good idea of some - of the
distress existing could be gained from the
host of lodgers, which occupied the station
house on Saturday and 184 night. It was
dull and cloudy yesterday with the wind
principally in the East, sometimes threaten.
ing us with snow, tho thermometer rising .
from 88 degrees in the iiiorning to 47 de.
grace in the 'afternoon, and the barometer
having a slight variation below 80 degreeli.
There was a slight fall of rain between 12
and 1 o'clock.
GROWTH OF RRADINO,—The cllng year
will boa Marked one in the !Oven ement of
Reading as a city. To one who has not
visited us since November 1867, parts of
our city would now present a strange ap
pearance. In place of humble or insignifi
cent buildings, he now beholds great piles
rearing their handsome and massive fronts
three or four stories high, with all the Mod•
ern beauties of brown stone or pressed
brick. Gaps of vacant lots he would find
filled up with snug private residences and
some fine stores, with the whole people giv
ing more heed to business enterprises, and
evincing a more energetic and enterprising
spirit than they have for many -years. We
trust this spirit of enterprise will, continue
with us, until we are up to the mark and
rank as the second City in the State. We
possess all the national advantages for be
coming a great manufacturing city.
CHURCH DEDICATION.—The new Trinity
Reformed Church, Rev. J. H. Dubbs, Pao.
tor, at Pottstown, was dedica!ed, - with 0r.."
propriate services,on Saturday and yester.
day. The opening sermon was preaChed on
Saturday morning by Rev. S. H. Dubbs, of
Allentown, father of the Pastor. Dr. Gans,
of Norristown, preached in the afternoon.
The dedicatory services yesterday morn•
in were of an impressive character. The
dedicatory sermon was preached by Rev.
John W. Nevin D. D., President of Frank
lin and Marshall College.
The Paitor read a very. interesting sketch
of the origin and progress of the various
churches connected with the - denomination
in Pottstown. [This sketch will be publish.
ed to-morrow in the Montgomery Ledger.]
In the afternoon, Rev. R. Hausman, of
Reading, preached in German, and in the
evening Rev. C. F. McCauley, - also of this
city, preached in 'English. -
Several other clergymen, of Pottstown,
participated in the services.
Largo collections were taken up on each
of these occasions. Crowded audiences were
in attendance throughout, many of those
present being from Reading, Norristown
Chester county, and elsewhere. -

S. Kern vs. Henr y ., S. Kern, 91 Sept. T.,
1868. Thia was a feigned issue directed• by
the Register's Court to try the validity of the
will of Daniel. Kern, late of the borough of
Hamburg, deceased. The will was dated the
Bth day of March, 1800, and a codicil to the
satin) the 26th day of Julr, 1866. The plain.
tiff called the subscribing witnesses to the
will and codicil, who proved the due execu
tion of the instrument and the mental com
petency of the testator at the time of sign
ing. There Was no defence offered, and the
jury, under the instruction of the Court,
rendered a verdict for the plaintiff, and in
favor of the validity' °tithe will. A. R.
Wanner and Ilagenman for plaintiff. 'Ja
cobs and Young for defendant. ,
The court called - ; the attention of the
members of the bar tai a recent decision of
Judge Agnew, of the Supreme Co rt,
effect that no money was to be con sidered
in court for distribution, until act ally paid
into the oflico of the Prothonotary, subject
to the order of the court. This decision,
by which this court will hereafter be govern•
ed, uprooted the practice that had prevailed
for the past twelve years.
The court referred with some felicity td
the fact that there were no cases remaining
on the list for trial before Wednesday morn•
ing next, Sixjurors were selected to try
an inq uisition i of lunacy in the case of Ma-
Reda Troutman, of Centre township, At two
o'clock to-morrow afternoon; The bAlance
of the jurors were discharged until 9 o'clobk

TIIR Use ov CARBONIC OXYD IN" FOR.
NACES.—It has often been proposed to use,
in some way or other,(whom oxyd as a
heating material in urnaees. It forms a
large proportion of the gases produced in
Sion= s regenerative furnaces, and or the
"heating gas" which it was proposed to
distribute about Barming . hain some years
ago. A German metallurgist now suggests
its use in - blast-furnaces, alone -with air to
diminish the nitrogen while increasing the
heat. 41Ie proposes to make it by, in the
first-place, calcining chalk with some cheap
combustibles in retortB, and passing the
carbonie.acid thus let st liberty into another
idea filled with coke, kept at a rod heat.
'f%e ctirbenie oxyd so obtained is super.
heated and carried on to the air.blast. The
production of the carbonic oxyd in this way
would seem expensive, but • the writer says
the time made in the first retorts will nearly
cover the cost.—Atnerlean Journal of Min.

"The stock market was calm after the exciting
events of-the week and, outside of transactions in
those Mocks which are supposed to be on the pro
gramme for a "corner" by the Erieclique, business
was dull. There is little or nothing new to say of
the situation in Erie, large quantities of which
are in the possession of the elique,without a mar
.ltet. Were it not for the fact that thenyerissues
:of stock may be required at orsy, moMent and the
stook thus got rid of without lossetiliss honest deal
ors in Wall street would haves irsarent oppor;
tunity of turning the tables on e,parindlerii by
refusing to make a Turkel for tothus leaving
them with their load. ,Indeed, there; iiss a proposi
tion to throw out the stock in transactions among
brokers until it is registered in some trust com
pany or respectable lbanking house. Such a step
would not, of course, be of any direct injury to the
swindlers but it would put them to the inconveni
ence of retiring the - overissue, As there are all
the Way from fifty to two hundred thousand shares
on the way front Europe consigned to them their
perplexity would be u much the greater. They
might be forced to take some stap which the law
could punish. The suit against the directors of
the Erie Company will probably be permitted to
remain in the pigeon-holestf the Supreme Coutt,
as the chief operator, the religious six-director and
confessed confederate of ( ) he swindlers has come
promised and abandoned 1 e tight minus a million
and a quarter of dollars, the overissues are now
in a place where they, can do no harm to the pub
lic, if the speculation in Erie °usu. They an a
dead weight to the swindlers. which they can get
rid of cal by another bold step its their Conroe of
fraud, If they take this step they confess the
crime of having fraudulently overbilled the stock.
If they do not they will be how/Wets if the out
side public and the respectable hankers' and brok
ers refuse to have anything further to do with Erie,
old or now, common or preferred. That they are
emrassed by their load wOuld seem to he prov
en by the fact that the • hanks relived to certify
their checks, They were compelled. in conse
quence, to make loans of stook along with the giv
ing •of checks until the money was deposited
against the latter. This - may be some very deep
trick. and it is suggested that it was done to break
the price of Rock Island, which they are reported
to be gathering for another "corner."
