Boylan, who died in a small house in the Sixth
ward, near the Round house. One of the jurors
informs us that the scene presented was one of the
most shocking ones he ever witnessed. Boylan was
laid upon a board, and the wife, stupefied with
liquor, was lying in the cradle, while several chil
dren were seated upon the floor—.nothing resem.

a son of Boylen, was committed to prison as a va

LIABILITIES OP RAILROADS FOR CATTLE KILLED
L TES STATE OF DELAWARIII.-AR important dent
don, involving the rights and liabilities of railway
companies, and the owners of oattle killed by trains
when on the track, has just been made by Chief
Justice Gilpin, of the State of Delaivare. Four
main points were made by the learned Judge, and
RBlO established by his decision as the law of his
particular jurisdiction, to wit :
1. That a railroad company, legally chartered,
hue the Vllloltriletcd right of way over its own
2. That it cannot be held in damages for any
loss which owners of cattle may sustain if their
cattle are killed or injured while upon the track,
and when due diligence and caution are observed
on the part of those in charge of the train, to pre
vent said destruction or injury.
8. That the company is not bound to fence in
the lands or farms along the line of road merely
for the eake of keeping cattle off the track; but
that it is the duty of owners of cattle to see that
such cattle do not interfere with mid *batted the
passage of the trains, and thus become trespassers.
4. That persons who suffer their animals to roam
at large upon the track, to the detriment of the
travel by obstructing the road, are liable in a Suit
for trespass thereof.

FACTS ABOUT THE Om litrenntss.—Under this
caption the Pittsburg Chronicle has a lengthy and
well-digested article in its 'edition of Thursday last.
Pittsburg is evidently awaking to the vast impor
tance of the oil business to her manufacturers and
mechanics; or, in fact, to her whole people. To
show the large amount of cash that city alone has
received from oil operators during the past year,
we condense a few facts from the Chronicle's state
ment, obtained from the books of the establish
ments which furnished the work.
- - - - .
The number of engines built in Pittsburg during
the last year, and sold and delivered, exclusively
for the oil interest, is 239. Of this number 140
were for the wells in that region ; the remainder
having been sent to Mecca, Kanawha, Smith's
Ferry and Blairsville districts. Faber Co. alone,
show an aggregate for engines and boilers fur
nished, and in hand, the snug sum of $85,000.
The aggregate of cost for engines and boilers paid
to Pittsburg in 1860, is $176,976. This work is
called a year's business, and it is a wonderful in
crease to Pittsburg, even counting a year, but it
has nearly all been done during the last three or
four months. It will be well enough to remember
61119, that this aggregate of engines alone, and
cost, does not, by any means, express the benefits
resulting to machinists from the discovery of oil.
The sum represents the share accruing to Pittsburg
only. Although this region has been the heaviest
purchaser of Pittsburg engines, we have not con
fined our custom to that city. Cincinnati, Buffalo,
and A. N. Wood do Co., of Madison county, N. Y.,
are well represented here in the engine business.
Of tubing, tools, pumps, rope, lc., the aggregate
cost furnished in 1860 is $178,002. Of this
amount J. B. Sheriff foots up $70,000. A large
amount of tubing is supplied by Erie, in addition
to that purchased in Pittsburg, and a heavy amount
of tools is manufactured in Franklin. Mr. Sheriff
has throo shops in operation in this region.
The sum total expended in Pittsburg, in 1860,
for engines, boilers, tubing, tools, rope, Ic., by oil
operators, is $527,720 : or more than half a million
The estimate of crude Petroleum received in
Pittsburg, during 1860, is 17,000 barrels. This
estimate, we are certain, is under the mark con
siderably. The value of this, at $l2 per barrel,
the average price obtained, is $233,208.
The refiners of Pittsburg have also been doing a
good business. Refining has become a business of
great importance, and in it is invested a heavy
amount of capital. Forsyth & Bro. nett 400 battele
of crude oil every week, Sawyer & Co. refine about
40 barrels per week ; Woodside & Parry 75, which
they will soon double; S. M. Kier k Co., about
500, and W. Mackeown about 600. Mr. Mackeown,
during the last twelve months, bought 3,000 bar
rels of (wade oil, which produced, when refined,
2,400, all of which went westward. The refined
article commands from $24 to $26 per barrel, and
the demand is greater than the supply. The
amount realised by the refiners at $25 per barrel,
is $219,500. The number of refineries reported is
Fix ) but 1911ral 011911 are almost ready to go into
The coal trade of Pittsburg is yet to be largely
benefitted by the oil business. It presents a mar
ket for that great staple where none existed be
fore, and at remunerative prices. Oil offers down
freight for empty coal barges, and would make the
business pay at each end of the river.
The coal oil trade is not taken into consideratim
in the above statistics. That is a heavy and im
portant business of itself, and must continue to be
until the supply of Petroleum shall become equal
to the demand.
When it is remembered that Petroleum, so far
as great practical effects are concerned, is a new
article just brought before the public—that all it
has accomplished in attaining a fixed demand and
a commercial value, has been done within one
year—it is no marvel that even true tales of its
success should seem beyond belief. The facts pre
sented to-day ought to satisfy the mostincredulous
that somebody must have struck "lie" somewhere.
HINTS ON WASHING THE HANDS, &c.—Some
philosophy is useful in even so simple a matter as
washing the hands; if any one doubts it, let her
with a microscope examine the surface to be clean
sed by water, and she will be interested, and per
haps shocked, at the discoveries made. Instead of
a smooth surface of skin, presenting, when un
washed, a dingy appearance, there will be seen a
rough, corrugated surface, with deep irregular fur
rows, in which the foreign particles are deposited
like earth among the rough paving stones of the
street. If they lay loosely, it would be an easy
matter to dislodge them with a little cold water;
but the pores, the waste pipes of the body, are con
tinually discharging into these open drains per
spiration and oil, which, by evaporation, become
cement to hold the particles of dust, Ac., and to
remove them requires both chemical and mechani
cal action. When water softens this cement, ex
pands the furrows, and makes the skin pliable, so
that by rubbing the soil is disturbed and partly re
moved. But At
caistry Met aid a little before the
process is complete ; and soap is added, the alkali
of which unites with the oily matters, and the
whole is then easily disposed of.
The wash cloth is useful, because its threads or
fibres work down among the furrows like so many
little brooms, sweeping them out; thence it should
be soft and pliable. Flannel is preferable to cot
ton for this purpose, and sponge is the beet of all.
Rough coarse cloths are objectionable, as they
abrade the skin and leave it rough, and more easily
filled with dust than before. Harsh, strongly
alkaline soap should be avoided for the same rea
son ; it abstracts all the oil from the upper layer
of the skin, and makes it chap or crack. Where a
sponge is not obtainable, a very neat and service
able cloth may be knit of soft cotton twine, either
with the crochet or with coarse wooden needles,
knitting back and forth, as garters are knit. A
mitten knit of tidy cotton, with the crochet needle,
is very handy for this purpose, and makes a neat
article for the washstand. A wash rag will not be
tolerated by. a tidy housekeeper. If clothe are
used, let them be neatly hemmed, and kept scru
pulously clean. Applying a little vinegar and
water to the ban& or face, after the use of soap,
and rinsing off the vinegar with clear water, is a
capital process to prevent chapping or roughness.
The acid neutralizes the alkali of the soap, and
keeps it from destroying the skin. Try this fre
quently, especially on washing days. Diluted
vinegar or other acid is excellent for the face after

JAPAN AND ITS Cusroms.—The population of
Japan, which has been much overrated, does not
amount to more than 20,000,000. Japan is com
posed of four large islands, and several smaller
ones of but little importance. The whole area is
150,000 square miles, about the size of California;
but Japan proper is only about two-thirds the size
of 1 1 6 - kait, containing 115,000 square miles. The
people are chiefly engaged in agriculture, and the
wages of mechanics and laborers average 12 cents
per day_ In their manners the people are very
courteous, but they are proud, irascible and licen
tious. Society is divided into eight classes, three
of whom bear swords. They are noted for what is
called "ofacial lying," no man being expected to
tell the truth if he can gain anything by a false
The houses are usually two stories high, but the
first is on a level with the streets, so that they do
net present a very imposing appearance 3 but the
inhabitants have good reason for this style of tene
ments, for typhoons and earthquakes are frequent.
The rooms are usually separated by partitions of
paper, made of mulberry, and of very handsome
patterns. The ceilings and wall are prepared with
the same material ; and not unfrequently the
wealthy have their apartments covered with gilt
paper, bearing designs of birds, flowers, Ac., which
present a beautiful appearance. An apartment in

inmates must suffer from cold during the winters
when the thermometer falls below freezing point,
as their houses are illy adapted to protect them,
having no fireplaces nor chimneys, using braziers
filled with burning charcoal instead, around which
often a numerous family assembles.
The streets of their cities are 25 feet wide, with a
sewer along the middle of each. They are paved
and have granite sidewalks, and in the principal
streets large gates are erected, which are closed in
cases of riot or hostile attack. Jeddo, the capital,
contains 2,000,000 of inhabitants. Their language
is the most difficult in the world to learn, being
made up of 72 sounds. The greater portion of the

.Reasons for Grant , ng State aid to Kansas.
EDITOR PATRIOT AND UNION :—Last year not ORO
tenth the usual amount of rain fell in Kansas, and
through a great portion of the Territory the ground
was not wet to the depth of three inches during
the entire summer. The result was, an almost en
tire failure of crops. Carefully gathered statistics
from more than sixty townships show that while
the average crop of corn in 1859 was thirty-eight
bushels per acre, in 1860 it was but one bushel and
§ half P9r Th9USotido 044r91 yielded netbing,
and in whole counties not as much was raised as
was planted and sown. So wide-spread is this des
titution that thousands are eating the bread of be
nevolence, and those who can support themsolvea
are in a condition to do little for their neighbors.
Some contradictory reports have recently come
from Leavenworth, Kansas, signed by several cid
tens of that place. That ocumemt was drawn up
partly from personal animosity to Thaddeus Ity
att, (who is not now a member of any committee,
but has spent several months time and more than
two thousaed dollars from his own pocket to feed
the hungry in Kansas ' ) partly from local preju
dice, and partly from opposition to the relief move
Local prejudice exists because Atchison is neces
sarily the distributing point, as the railroad from
the east is not completed to Leavenworth. These
towns, twenty-five miles apart, are rivals, and little
souls are affected by it in this matter.
Some of the Signers to the dispatch from Leaven
worth, strange as it may seem, have always opposed
asking for aid, on the ground that a disclosure of
the true condition of Kansas would injure our
future prosperity by preventing the desired influx
of immigrants and capital.
There are persons in every State who would,
under cover of law, rob a widow of her last dollar
and leave her helpless children to beggary, and if
these persons were in Kansas they would prefer
that great suffering should ensue, rather than have
the facts before the country, and they suffer lose
in the price of corner lots and quarter sections.
The Mayor of Leavenworth, Hon. J. L. McDow
ell, informed me in January that his county had
raised less than a quarter drop this year, and that
many peroone there were. dependent upon bolp
from abroad. Others who signed the dispatch,
issued a call for aid two months ago, under their
own signatures, stating that more than 30,000
needed assistance. Finally, in this dispatch, they
say that twenty thousand need aid. Certainty this
is enough to call for generous assistance. The
truth is, however that Kansas has always hitherto
raised good crops, and will, in a few ybilte, re
cover from this terrible Providential dispensation.
A memorial which I recently presented to the
New York Legislature, gave in detail figures show- 1
ing the necessities of Kansas for seed and fuel, '
with the following result. The value of seed re
quired is about as follows—allowing that there are
in Kansas 460,000 cultivated acres, or an average
of one farm of thirty acres to every seven persons :
Wheat 75,000 acres, sorghum 45,000, potatoes 7,500,
corn 285,000, oats. .te., 30,000, garden vegetables
7,600 acres, at a first cost for seed of $162,749.00
—cost of bags and freight to Atchison $65,911.00.
Allowing that one quarter of this can be fur
nished by the people themselves, it will require
$152,440 for seed alone.
The 11. S. army rations for each man daily arc
18 ounces bread and 20 ounces beef, or 16$ pounds
solid food per week, or, for 30,000 people—the
towel estimate deducible from reliable returns
-498,750 pounds per week, or 14,962,500 pounds for
30 weeks, or 247,041 bushels at 60 pounds per
bushel. This being caleulated for flour at $1.25
per bushel, gives $308,801. freights on same
at 20 eents per bushel to Atchison, $49,408. One
third of this seed and food must be transported to
the interior to those whose teams have died or been
disposed of to procure bread, which will cost about
$25,000, making a total of $535,649. Towards
this sum Wisconsin, besides large private contribu
tions, has appropriated $5,000, and New York
Will not the Legislature of Pennsylvania, with
her vast wealth, contribute at least $30,000 ?
The sum is too vast to be attained by private
contributions, liberal as they have been, and the
relief is needed immediately. The Territorial Leg
islature has memorialized legislatures in session
asking for aid. Nothing can be done towards re
lief by issuing State bonds until too late, because
the Legislature was elected several months since
and there are several vacancies to be filled, while
our representatives are many of them at a great
distance from the capital with no telegraphs or
railroads to facilitate communication and travel.—
In the name of thousands who are, suffering for the
commonest necessaries of life, and many of whom
went from this State,l beg the Legislature to make
a speedy appropriation for relief.
It cannot be that Pennsylvania will refuse bread
to her own children ! C. C. HUTCHINSON,
