PLtwottErre..—We wore amused the other
evening nt seeing a number of young gents
and ladies try the mysteries of Planehette,
and some of the party were struck with awe
at, its doings. IVe, however, agree 'with
others that it is a humbug. When the per
put their hands on it, it certainty runs
about the paper.(we should like to see two
persons with nerves steady enough to• keep
it from running;) but as for forming letters,
that it quill not do, unless one or both of the
persons whose 'bands are on it scheme and
help the instrument to form the letters.
In, Messrs. pamphlet they say
“Planefietto is sometimes coy, auspicious,
reluctant, will not work for the skeptical,"
etc. They are quite right, it will only work
for those who, make it work. Probably,
however, there arc no spirits living in -this
city. • . •
but Planehette ' by the way, is Rood amuse•

We gatherings, but if it comes to be used as a
fortune' teller, and some persons are silly

Mn. Eamon: —I have been told that the
several_National Banks of this city intend
giving suppers to their officera and a few
pets, with% will cost at least five hundred
dollars for each supper.. I, am not a stock
holder in any bank, and who but the stock
holders pay the fiddler in this case? - Some
'may, say the sinking fund in a bank pays' it.
If I were a stockholder, I would like. to see
the sinking fund examined, so that I would
know how much coal, gold, silver and oil is
to be found. I would like to know too,
when the Directors of the several hanks ever
examined their books: It would not 'do for
me to be a Bank Director, for- I would see
the books, and then .I could tell outsiders
how the cat jumped: I am' going to pay
particular attention to these suppers, and
see who eats canvass-back and drinks cham
pagne and smokes twenty-five cent cigars.
I will give you another eye-opener after the
N. 33. I hope you will not be afraid to
palish the above, for all persons dealing
with banks should know these points, as I
can tell them a thing or two more, if I had a
mind to, and then the, public will know

Thew week opened with a dull business at the
stook board, the principal operations being in
bonds, of which there were sales to the extent of
thirty two thousand dollars. Lehigh Navigation
gold bonds were stronger. and 'advanced to 91,
while city sixes, with very light transactleue,
were Pteady at Some Pittsburg sixes brotight
91. In the stock list the business in Reading was
inside of a thousand shares, at prices correspond
ing to the figures of Saturday last. Pennsylvania
brought 5l and The Erie conflict seems to
have exrended itself no far as its influence on the
stock board is concerned, but It has had the effect
to leave business in a very unsatisfactory and
sotuewhat pathetic rendition. The quarrel be
tween the contending par Ales has been submitted
to the courts, and no matter what may he the re
sult there, we think we fairly congratulate the
public on being, far some time at least, rid of the
scoundrelism which has marked the conduct of ail'
concerned in the "bulling" snit "bearing" of that
stock, and .which has infected the stock boards of
Now York like a deadly poison. If business Is
now dull, it is more healthy, and the recuperating
process is going on silently which will be produc
tive of most excellent results; but it must not be
supposed that there is goinif to he such nn easy
monek market as we had sone weeks ago. Gov

yesterday, nee steadily approximating tu the fig

anti they will' probably go somewhat higher-not
because they are intrinsically worth even the
present price, but becriuse investors who desire to
place their money permanently have more confi
dence in them than in any other securities that
are on the market. Gut stooks and bonds of all
kinds are likely ere long to find their properlovel.
The immense sums of money which have been
crowded into the commercial centres must before
long bo largely distr.; butcd,:and that into channels
where it is likely to remain. As wo remarked
some time since, the people of the southern States
aro recuperating, despite the despotism imposed
On them, and the crops which under a benificent
Providence they have this year gathered, are
coming forward to be sold, and it will take cash to
buy them, no matter at what prides they may be
disposed of, The money which is required to pay
for these crops will go into oireulation in the
southern States, which are now, in somelocalities,
almost destitute of currency, and wo shall hence
havit what will prove the same as an important
contraction of the currency; antl,ll3 a consequence,
fancy stocks and puffed-up securities of nil kinds
insist and will, as before remarked, find their pre
In reviewing the history of the past throe
weeks, we reioice that we were prompt in our de
nunelations of the applications made to the Secre
tary of the Treasury for a reissue of the three por,
cents, or a portion of the greenback currency that
had been retired. The result has,shown that we
were not mistaken in our Judgment, and wo take
some credit for having had a part in influencing a
Judgment by tho Sooretary of the Treasury which
has saved to thAnasses of the people billions of
dollars in the aggregate. When the process to
which we have reterred, namely, the distribution
of currency in the South, shall have gone on for a
while, there will ho another stringency. but it will
be all . right and proper. It will ho like the o i pera-
Cod of griping medicine, that the physician pre
scribes for a very sick patient; it will hurt for a
while, but he will surely be cured by it. It will be
needful for the Secretary of the Treasury hnd
Congress"; if it should be in session, to stand very
firm when these pinches come, for there should be
no moo tampering with thissubject.. Lot nature

Cigic Nhinufsouvers have (sailed an ad•
e$A to the trade throughout the United
States mid the New Dominion, wherein they
detail at great i length the; grievances they
have suffered at the hands of their journey
men. address says that the present
price& paid are fully three times as great us
they were ten years eke, and that, notwith
standinkthis, the journeymen are constant
ly clamoring for more. The manufacturers
once proposed the appointment of an Arbi
tration Committee by. each party to the can-
test, to nettle all disputed ptunts, but the
Ilnions would listen to no reasonablepropo•
silica-and knew uobounds in their demands.
Again, the employers offered an advance
over oven the present rates, on the con
dition that the workmen , should pledge
themselves to demand no further in
crease for six months. To this-proposition
.the Executive Committees of the Unions,
alter long delay, replied that they were pre
pared to report favorably •on it, providing
the employers Would consent to employ
none bat trnioti turn. To this proviso the
manufacturers retitled to accede, and, to
protect'themselves•from further imposition,
diseharged all Union men from their faelo
rie's. In conclusion, the address explains
that this step was taken, not on ne,contit of
opposition to Trades' Unions in general,but
as a measure of self-protection. The letter
appeals to'all manufacturers to refrain from
increasing their working force for the pres
ent, and warns them that unless the nu - 101y

with their ekample may becOmo contagious.
A Vim GRUA' MISTAER:-A young man
can hardly make a greater mistake than to
phiee himself in antagonism to his employ
er's business, by the too common error of
trying how little service he may render for
the pay he receives. Thelnatter of remuner
ation ahead have nothing whatever to do
with the fidelity and efficiency of the services
rendered. It is it tidal error to presume that
it is the policy „of an employer to get Mel
mast he can out of a clerk for the smallest
pay. There is. no intelligent employer who
does not know and act uptin 'the knowledo
that money / is of very little consequence in
comparison with integrity and ability; and a
young man Who does his whole duty in these
essentials cannot fail to draw c upon himself
the attention and confidende of his em-.
*Ter. When these are socured the other
desirable things Must folio.
We would advise no ;going man to be un
mindful of his own present interests, or to
submit to indignities or injustice of any kind;
but wo feel constrained to say that, in nine
cases out often, where clerks imagine that
they aro not apprOpiatibd, or aro underpaid,
or overworked, ank'from any such case,un•
dettake to mend matters by making prow
toryAemands, they are in the wrong, and
if thefrailsthey only meet their just deserts.
A little patience, a good deal of persever
ance, and an undeviating fidelity to the best
interests of an:employer, are 4nore potent
in. securing adviincenient in position and pay
than any ether kind of elf-assertion.
These remarks will apply with equal force
to those clerks pr employes who aro thor-
Mighty conscious of having unappreciative,
exactlng,and even unjust employers; for Dt•
ogenes was never mere earnest in his search
an honest man than are business men of
the present day in quest of honestand capa
le clerks; and these ,virtues cannot exist in
active' form without being . found out by
somebody who will appreciate them, and be
pnly to glad to pay for themor-Sdicted.
