A DEER CAPTURED ALIVE.—A beautiful deer
was captured some time last week, while at
tempting to cross the Susquehanna from one
point of the first mountain to the other. It
had been chased by dogs,
,until, wearied an.
alarmed, it plunged into the Susquehanna, ex
pecting thus to escape from its pursuers ; but
it was seen from the shore by some persons,
who pursued it with a canoe, and thus captured
it before it could reach the opposite shore.
FEFLOTS OF THE HIGH WiND.-A portion of
the roof of Gross & Kunkle's warehouse, along
the Canal, was bloWn off yysterday aftdrueon.
he walls of the State cipitol Mills, in State
street, which, was partly destroyed by fire some
time since, were also levelled to the ground.—
The sign of the Union House Hotel, in Market
guest, was also compelled to kiss mother earth.
We hear of several fences having been blown
dowu but are happy to hear that no lives
were lost or Injuries - to persons received,—
We have not experienced mich a heavy storm
for many years, In this locality, and last night
was one of the coldest of the season.
Move DAMAGIL—We understand that a nor_
tion of the roof on the Asylum stable. was
blown off last evening. -
CA antennas OF Fairrossues.-,Many _ thou
eands of dollars are annually wasted by-the
carelessness and neglect of persons in the em
ployment of others. A great ,number of em
ployees never think or seem not to _care how
much the property of their employers is de
stroyed. They do not exercise that economy
with others property tilt they would with
their own, but seem to think the saving of ap
parently trifling matters is not worth observing,
as the cost is but little, and nothing to them
selves. They dp not think or know that the
strictest economy on their part will ensure to
their own benefit. in employer will soon dis
cover this in a band, and will reward it by -in
creased confidence. This very thing of econo
my and care is in a great measure the secret
or success with many young . men. It never
fails to be rewarded.
AMEHLIMENTS TO THE SCHOOL LAWI3.—A very
important bill, proposing changes in the laws
relating to the Common School System, can
be found on the bill file in the House of Re
presentatives. Several important, and, we
think, wholesome changes, are introduced.
Section first' changes the time of commencing
the Common School year to the first Monday
in May. The second and third sections require
that Directors, Controllers and Superintendents
- take an oath to discharge the duties of their
offices honestly, faithfully, and according to
law. The fourth exhonerates teachers from
holding any boroUgh, township or city office,
and from the payment of militia tax. The
fifth requires a vote of the majority of the
members of any Board of School Directors or
Controllers to levy a-tax, buy or sell or locate
any school house, engage or dismiss any teach
er, fix upon any course of studies, or for the
adoption of text books. The sixth requires
the Superintendent's report to be made in Oc
tober of each year. The seventh exhonerates
loans contracted for school purposes from tax
The eighth fixes the payment of Superinten
dents at $5OO for each school up to 100 in his
district, MO for every one ever that up to
200, and $2OO each for each above that num
ber. No Superintendent is to be paid less than
$BOO, eavein Forest County, where his 'salary
is to be but $2OO. Sections nine and ten relate
to taxation for school purposes. Sections eleven,
twelve and thirteen relate to the formation of
new school districts. Section sixteen makes it
incumbent on the proprietors of cotton,woolen,
silk, bagging or flax factories to keep a register
of the names atd age of all minors between
thirteen and sixteen in their employ, and fixes
a penalty for neglecting to make such record.
Section seventeen provides for the recovery, of
a penalty of $5O in every instance where minors
between nine and thirteen are so employed, to
be sued for as debts ‘lctf" like .amount are now
sued for. The seventeenth -section 'empowers
the Trustees of Academies and Seminaries own
ing land, &e., for educational purposes, to
convey it to the Boyd of pirectors of the dis
trict in which it is located ; "'provided, that•
when a high school is established through the
agency of said property, the citizens of the die.

A GOOD ILLIISTEATION.--The Union of these
States is like a bowl of punch, in which all the
parts are amalgamated, so that you cannot sep
arate them, though the whole may he dashed
upon the ground and lost. Nothing can be
more diverse than the original ingredients—
the water, the lemon, the sugar, the brandy,
and a dash of old rum. We leave our readers
to assign localities to the strong and the weak,
the sweet and the sour. Once combined, noth
ing can surpass the strength and flavor of the
compound. Chemistry may indeed devise
means_to analyze and dissolve its elements; but
the parts will be good for nothing but to fling
Ransom> BRIDGE Dreraorun.—The fourth,
fifth and sixth spans froth the Cumberland
side of the Northern Central &dirtied bridge,
at Dauphin, were blown off from the piers lilt
evening about six o'cloCk, by the extraordinary
high winds raging at that time. The wood
work lies on the racks in the river beneath,
and, of course, a great portion of it cau be used
for re-building. The travel will not, however,
be interrupted in the mean time. The connec
tions with their road will, be, made over the
Central and Schuylkill and Susquehanna, on
this side of the river at Dauphin. We presume
the Bridge will be rebuilt, as soon as the weather
proves a little more favorable for . out of door
work. The loss will be considerable and occurs
at a time when companies' are not able to
stand heavy losses. -
GOING TO JAIL ON SPECULATION —The Bo s ton
Traveller noticesan incident which could hard
ly have occurred out of Yankee land. It says:
One of the witnesses for the defence in a rob.
bery case at Rozbury, declined obtaining bonds
although he could probably have done so, but
allowed himself to be committed to jail. He
will have to stay there three months, receiving
$1 Ter day and his board. will have about
$9O at the end of his term of imprisonment,
treble the sum which he would have been able
o earn, above his board, as a common laborer.

RAILROADS IN PENNSYLVANIA.-0111* State hits
now more miles of railway in operation than
any State in the Union, except Ohio. The
latter has 3,057, while, we have 2,943, accord
ing to an account published in the United
States Economist, a New York paper. The
next States in rank to us in this respect are Il
linois, with 2,924 miles in operation, New York
2,808, and Indiana, 2,058. But as regards the
total length of lines, of which these miles form
parts, our State is far ahead of all, except Ohio.
We rank thus : Ohio, 4,133 miles-, Penneyr
vania, 3,972; Illinois, 3,651; New York, 3,456;
Teas„ 2,667; Indiana, 2,622. While, hereto
fore, Illinois is now very near us in the matter
of miles in operation, she will be ultimately
distanced when all our roads shall have been
" In the item of coat of construction and equip
ment we head the list , thus : Pennsylvania
$161,629,629; New York, $146,259,792; Ohio,
$117,363,116; . Thin0i5, $106,975,681. No other
States comes within gunshot of these figures.
When we call to mind ,the roads yet unfinish
ed in this State, such as the Sunbury and
Erie, Allegheny Valley, Pittsburg and Erie,
and Pittsburg and Connellsville, and many
others, it is not difficult to understand how
our State steadily rises in the naiad record,
and bids fair ultimately to become the-great
leading railroad State of the Union. Western
Pennsylytnia is not yet one-third accommodat
ed in this respect. Her bituminous coal, salt,
mineral oil, manufactures,, wool prodact, and
rapid growth in population, all demand large
ly extended railway facilities.
PRTHOLEIIM OIL -AND ITS PROPBWITINL,--A
chemist, writing in the North American of the
Petroleum and Naptha says "they are
highly impregnated with oxygen, hydrogen
and carbon, which are found in ail olean
gineous snbstances. Theyarec supposed to be
generated by the action of internal hest upon
beds of coal upon rocks rich in bituminous
matter, the thinner being generally' called
naptha, and the more viscid Petroletun. These
oils are also found in various localities in Per
sia, in the neighborhood of the Caspian Sea,ln .
Italy and Burnish. A well in the latter named
country has been known for over one hundred
years, and has produeed several thousand bar
rels per annum. In the hands of some chem
ists the productions taken from . these oils have
been of a character almost incredible. They
are, first, benzola ; second, oil of bitter
almonds ;, third, an illuminating oil, which
burns with a brillianc3r equal to gas, with a
flame three inches in height, and emits' no
smoke. One superiority , that this illuminatar
'Las over many others is, that it is perfectly
non-eiplosive. Fourth, a lubricating oil,
which is equal to the best sperm, inasmuch as
it will not freeze or gum ; fifth, a carbonate
polish, equal in brilliancy to any other yet pro
duced. Various others, such as musk and oil
of rose, and a colouring matter of a royal,
purple, a,perfectly fast color. In fact, all the
original colors ire,in a greater or less degree,
combined these oils, and, can, by proper
scientific application, be produced.

A MAN FORGES HIS SISTER'S NAND, AND GETS

deposited in that bank belonging to his sister,
The Nashville Gazette says it - appears ihat

bank on Thursday, and learned to her astonish

small amount, had been drawn out' by her
brother. The officers of the bank immediately
caused the arrest of Whitley, Who was arraign

TIM OIL BUSINESt3.—The people in Venango,
Mercer, , .Erie and several other counties of that
portion of the State seem to be in a perfect
furore about the•oil speculation; One of the
papers says that`soo teams are engaged hauling
oil to Union Mills. This gives employ to 500
men. The feecktbat 500 teams will - Consume,

the amount of lumber, barrels, &c., which have
to be transported to the points of demand. It
is hard; indeed,
„to estimate the addltiopar
mount of labor in . other departments of If
man industry, that is made necessary by the
oil business. The demand for lumber in the'
"oil regions" is now very great, and priceti
high. The yearly product of the saw-mills of
that vicinity, that has heretofore been sent to
Pittsburg, is now connumeclat home, at a higher
price than could have been obtained after run

In no 'branch of the mechanic arts In this
country has more rapid strides been made than
in the manufacture of Piano-Fortes, the favor
ite, and, we may say, the universal musical
instrument of the household. Every well-reg
ulated establishment must have its Piano; in
deed, the parlor, with its gorgeous and luxur
ious furniture, its pictures, its bronzes, its pa.
rians, would be badly appointed without one.
And it behoves every man in selecting an in
strument, not to fail in obtaining one of good
tone - and finish ; for, like furnaces, ranges and
cooking-stoves, the cheapest are by far the malt
expensive. We know by experience—by pocket'
experience—for, within a term of six years, we
purchased three of as many different Makers.
and although it would have pulzle'd any but an
expert to have pointed out why they were not
equal to anything in the market, yet they
turned out to be miserable rattletraps end tink
ling cymbals compared to those - of which,we
write-; and all the skill and ingenuity of good
workmen failedin rendering them fit for an am
ateur artist to play Yankee Doodle upon in a
satisfactory manner. We got rid of our ' 'bad bar
gains" one after another, ata sacrifice of course,
and were recommended to purchase one of
Chickering's Perla- Grande, which we did,
three'yeare ago, and we can now asseverate
that it was the only " good' bargain" in the
Plane line we ever made. It is truly a magnifi
cent instrument and one that we are proud to
have our friends listen to ; arid, moreover, it
haanritrequired a cent to keepit In good coil

semi-annually. But while we are boasting of
possessing a superior instrument, we halo.

The truth is, the Chickering. Piano has never

a more perfect instrument. It is, therefore,

It is, indeed, a great satisfaction to possess a
