gentlemen, Leaded by. Captain Ashland,
passed -through Washington -last fall, -
with • dogs, guns - and other sporting re
quisites, intending to spend some time in

well pleased with the country that a large
tract of land has been purchased near;
Gainesville on the Manassas Railroad, -
and two of the party have sailed for t
Europe for the_ purpose of bringing out
&small colony of English emigrants. It

Dm You hear about the unique enter
tainment the other evening at a certain
up-town residence, called the unveiling
of the statue of Venus ? It seems a geu
tleman had a statue of Venus, and as he
proposed to unveil it, he thought to issue
.cards to his friends, so all the - elite were
there, including such well known per
sonsas Charles O'Conor, Bishop Potter,
and others. Upon entering the house all
the guests were shown into tirciom where
a maiden stood with abasin of water and
towels. Each one was expected to wash
his hands and face in the true Roman
style, after which they were taken into
anotherioom, and presented with a wreath
of flowers and a lyre. Mr. Charles O'Con
nor objected to being crowned, but all
the other gentlemen allowed the flowers
'to be put upon their brows. Imagine
the good and venerable Bishop Potter
with a wreath of roses on his bead, and
a lyre in his hand I But he does not ob
ject to such harmless fun. After this the
guesta.were taken into the room where
'Venus was. Here dancing and singing
about the statue took place, and theri the
marble was unveiled. Soon after this
performanc - e the g entleman of the house
came down in aßoman toga.—The New
Tux. following English 'railway station
tableau is from the Birmingham Post:
A. thick chain; three little boys on either
. side and a bigger boy at the end; all
handcuffed. Several poor women cry
ing. Lots of children and _policemen.
One of the childien was so little that a
policeman had to wrap a handkerchief
Around his wrist to make the handcuff's
fit. "What's theelnatter--what have these
boys done, and where are they going?"
_ "Been a gambling, sir.. Going to Staf
,ford for seven days." "Gambling, did
you say?" "Yes, sir. Pitch-and-toss on
Sunday." - "Pitch-and-toss Do I un
denstand you? Five little boys under
twelve and two not sixteen, all going to
jail for pitch.aud-toss?" "Yes, sir."
"Without the option of a fine?" "No, str;
fined sixpence." "That's three-and-six
pence for. the `seven ; I'll pay the
lot." "But, then, there's the costs, sir."
''Well, what's the totatf".,"Four pounds
-no shillings, and sixpence, sir." Now,
.ss I understand neithei of the boys had
ever been in custody before, and, as their
dress denoted, they must of necessity be
exceedingly poor„ I inquired of a wo
won, who appeared in great distress, the
habits of the boys. i"I can only," she
said, "speak for my boy, sir- He earns
. Ise six shillings a week.. He's a good
lad. I haven't money enough to free
him, and what's he to do when he comes
out of Stafford, I don't know. He can't
- walk the twenty miles home." For.
tunately, two gentlemen appeared on the
scene, and inquired particulars,' which
' , were soon' forthcoming. "Scandalous,"
said, one. '"ldonstrousl." said the other.

the boys , did not go to jail.
Home, Consumption of WoOh •
The. number of sets • of machinery or
series of cards—a` set forming the unit for
calculation in woolen machinery—em
ployed in:the United States, reported to
the National Association of Wool Manu
facturers, on the 25th of October, 1865,
was 4,100. The estimated number in
the United States, as all were not reported
at that time, was 5,000. From a care
fully prepared table we find that Massa
chusetts consumes more wool in her fac
tories than any other four States in the
Union, her weekly consumption being
857,496 pounds of scoured wool. Of this
aggregate 560,396 pounds are domestic
wool and-the balance is of foreign pro
•duction. Connecticut stands nest to
Massachusetts in her consumption of
wool, using weekly 232,880 pounds of
scoured wool. New York uses 236,510
ppunds, and New Hampshire, 217,110
ponds. The_ total amount used
weekly in the 'United States is, accord
ing to the table, 2,252,545 pounds. It
will thus be seen that Massachusettts man.
ufactures more than one-third of all the
'wool consumed in the woolen mills
of this country. .The smallest consump
tion of any given in this table, is that of
Min ektipta, which is only 1,200 pounds
per week. Some of the States and Ter
ricories consuming little wool are not,
however, reported; bat they will not vary
the statement to any noticeable extent.
In New York - there are 124 mills that
have not been heard from. In Massachu
setts 74 have not been reported. In all
the States there are 624 mills not repor
ted! against 917 which have forwarded
their statements. From this it will be
seen that the large aggregate weekly con
sumption; as above stated, falls much be
low the reality. It is lair to suppose,
however, that many of ShOse not heard
from are small' establishthents; but, grant
ing that, the weekly consumption will'
not fall far below 3,000.000 pounds.
The value of the wool manufacture, as
given in the report of the United States
Commissioner of Revenue, is $121,868,-
1 2.50.33. .
The effect of the, establishment of mills
in California and Oregon has been greatly
beneficial to the, wool growers of those
States ; previous to their erection they
were at the mercy of speculating monopo
lists from the Atlantic States.- This is
another illustration of the value of home
Returns of woolen' machinery con
structed by the principal manufacturers
of cards and jacks in the country show
that two thouiand and eighty six sees have
been made since January, 18G5. These
facts show that the wool industry of the
United States is already not only a large'
and important, but a vigorously growing
one.--Seie' ntsjic Ameriean.
The New Darien Canal.
Peter . Uooper and Comm odore Vander
bilt are at the head of the company or
ganized to construct the inter-oceanic
canal. A doien other big capitalists are
in with them, and enough money is pro
mised to start the work and push it on
just as soon as Mr. Cushing's treaty is
ratified and Congress enacts the neces
sary laws. The amount of ' capital need
ed is not yet known, but it will not be
less than a couple of hundred millions,
and some old hands at big jobs think the
work cannot be completed for less than
five hundred- millions. Whatever the
amount may be, it will be raised without
much difficulty, for millions are mere
bagatelles to the men who have secured
this magnificent scheme. It will proba
bly be three or four years before the work
is commenced—the treaty allo,ws five—
and it may take ten years to finish it, but
when completed it will be a splendid
thing for the parties interested. It is be
lieved that the annual earnings will not be
less than $100,000,000, of which, though
the ownership of the canal is nominally
vested in the United States Government,
a large share will, of course, go'into the
pockets of the parties constructing it.
The Colombiaagovernment is to receive,
according to the treaty, ten per cent. of
the net proceeds of the canal for the first
-ten years, and after that one-fourth of the
net profits. But "after, that" where will
the Colombian government be ? Cer
tainly, if Gen. Banks remains in Con
gress,-it won't be his fault if the noble
bird of our country does not flap his
wings over every mile of Central Amer
- By the time the canal is finished,
net to speak of ten years after, the Co
lombian government and some others. on
this continent will probably have "passed
in their checks," - as the boys used to say
in the army, and Uncle Sam will then
haye it all to himself.—New York Leiter.
AT AN oil refinery in Cleveland, on
Saturday morning last, a singular acci
dent occurred. One of the tanks, access
to which is had hy the ladder extending
downward from a man-hole in the top,
needing repairs, a man named Pool de
scended to the bottom, when he began to
feel the effect 'of gas and, started up the
ladder again, but was overcome and fell
back insensible. His condition was . dis
covered, and another workmen named
Gibbons entered the tank to rescue him.
Gibbons succeeded in reaching Toole,
bore him in his arms up the ladder, and
lifted him up so that he was taken out by
others, but fell back himself insensible.
Frank Graham then went to Ws relief,
with the same result. He succeeded in
getting Gibbons out, but fell back him
self, overcome by the gas: - A fourth'
man, Doyle ' then went down to rescue
Graham, and shared the fate of all the
rest. He bore Graham to the top, but
before he could be taken out, fell back
into the tank. Charles Stillman, mem
ber of an adjoining firm, then succeeded
in rescuing Doyle without exposing him
self to the deadly vapor. The injured
men, all insensible, 'were conveyed to
their homes, where restoratives were ap
plied, but Gibbons and Doyle were at last
accounts suffering froth violent spasms.
BRONIBLAIIB &WAR°, one of the most
able and popular of the leaders of the
Polish' national movement of 186142,
disappeared mysteriously a few months,
after thelniurrection broke- out. He has
just found means to communicate with
his friends, who, after making every ef
fort to find out:what bad become of him,
had given him up for lost. He was sen-
tenced early in 1863 to Siberia, bat it now
appears that for the last five years he has
been chained to a wall in one of those'
fatal casements, lying below the level of
the river Neva at Cronstadt, where so
many political prisoners have died a mis,
erable death. Those who have seen him
there, and who knew him at Warsaw,.
when he was a handsolne, spirited young
man, say that it is now quite impossi
ble to recognize him. Ile is a cripple,
prematurely old, utterly broken down
by disease and suffering, and • witnout a
spark r of_his old energy left.

ECONOMY BUTTER CO.
ask the attention of all interested In the reduc
tion of the extravagant cost of Butter, to their
practical and economical System of making pure
prime Buttes Lee the aid of the
EXTRACT OF BUTTER PLANT.
A brief allusion to the origin of this imr °neat
discover y may not prove uninteresting• Among
the authent'cated records of the renowned Cap
tain Cabk's voyage around the world, is found s
the statement, that while sojourning fora short
time on the Brazilian Coast of South America, he,
observed the natives using, in the preparation of
their food, a oeculter oil. which, upon examina
tion. he found to possess- the appearance, taste
and (laver of Butter; nron further inquiry, how
ever, he ascertained that it was simply a sub
stance that the natives distilled In a crude and
Imperfect manner, from a rich and luxuriant
plant that grew spontaneously and abundantly in
that warm tropical country. A few 3ea rs ago,
an eminent 'French chemist, while on a profes
sional visit to the tropics, made numerous exper
iments with this remarkable production of na
ture, and succeededln extracting a concentrated
essence of the plant. The formula for its prepa
ration, and the Sete Right to its sale In this
country are the exclusive property of this Com
pany, by whom it was purchased from the origi
nal discoverer. We claim for this remarkable,
yet simple and perfectly harmless preparation—
W.—That by its use a net gain of from 50 to 200
per cent. is made In the manufacture of Butter.
2d.—That Butter, which from age or whateFer
cause, may be strong, rancid, streaked or
coarse-grained, and comparatively useless for
general use, by the aid of this Extract, is re
stored to its original freshness and sweetness,
fine-grain, and even color.
3d.—By the use of this Extract, one pound of
delicious, fresh Butter is actually made from
one pint of milk.
4th.—That a pure and excellent table Butter can
be made, at a cost of from 15 to 20 c nts per
pound. The chief expense wherein being But
ter, which Is the essential base.
sth.—That Butter manufactured by the aid of
this Extract ls equal.tri every respect to the best
Butter made by the ordinary method.
6th.— Tne Extract after thorough analysts, by
I able chemists, Is pronounced perfectly free from
any deleterious substance, the ingredients be
ing purely of a vegetable nature.
proof of ;he foregoing assertions, the
factory of this cempany Is making one ton of
Butter per day, which meets with ready sale
in the New York Mrtket, and is consumed from
the tables of the first Hotels, Restaurants and,
Private families in this city and elsewhere.
A sample package of the Extract (sufficient to,
make 50 lbs. of Butter> with full directions for
use, will be sent to any address on receipt of $l.
CAUTION.—As articles of real merit are sub
ject to spurious Imitations,, we would specially
caution the public against counterfeits and worth
