BARR Y Elditor anti Proprietor

After a.ll almost uninterrupted session of
nearly four months, the Court of Quarter Ses
sions, &C. terminated on Saturday ; the judges
will commence to sit in the Common Pleas,
with a trial list of nearly a hundred cases to
dispose of. The amount of labor performed
has been enormous, the important criminal
cases which have been disposed of frequently
requiring the Court to sit not only eight or
nine hours In the day time, but also to bold
night sessions. It cannot be denied by any
one at all familiar with the vast amount of
businesg thrown upon the judges of the Quar
ter Sessions, that entirely too much is required
of them. It is next to impossible that their
duties can all be properly performed within
the allotted time. One term runs into anoth
er with scarce o breathing space between.
The judges are not to blame, if all the business
required at their hands is not done as speedily
as lawyers and clients may wish, as the
amount of labor assigned them is manifestly
greater than they can dispose of, for in addi ,
tam to the very heavy amount of criminal
business, and the trial of civil pleas, all the
Orphans' Court—an". important and most re'-
sponsible part of their duties—and all spe
cial business relating to roads, bridges, tavern
licences, &c., falls to this Court, and as a
matter of course much of it must be dispatch
ed in great haste, and frequently to the injury
of suitors. It seems apparent that the vast
increase of business in these Courts in the last
ten years requires some change in their
organization. Tne public perceives the evil,
and it is frequently the subject of remark and
discuision. Several remedies have been pro
posetL Some are favorable to a Court exclu
sively' for criminal trials, for the cities and
country, while others think that an additional
law judge to this Court would mend the evil.
The former would be expensive, but the latter
would we think, go far towards relieving the
pressure of business. The cases m - ght be so
arranged that while one judge was engaged in
criminal trials the other might • dispose of the
Orphans' Court, Road, and a great vafety of
other public business. The Orphans' Court
business in a large and wealthy county like
Allegheny is most important. Th a court is, in
some sense, the legal custodia•; and guardian of
the fortunes and interests of a el .ss of persons
who arc incapable of attending to their own af
fairs. Its duties, properly performed, require a
great degree of deliberation, and patient and
thorough examination into a great vari,dy of
details. The haste and pressure of business
which at present exists in this Court is not
consonant with public justice. - The same
reasons also cause the " laws delay " to be too
easily obtained in the Court of Common
Pleas. An additional law judge upon this
bench would be a great benefit to the public
and greatly facilitate the transaction of •busi
. It has also been proposed, with a view
relieving the Quarter Sessions from the duty
of trying criminal cases of a trival nature,
that, the Mayors and A_ldernien of the two
cities should be empower , d to summon a jury
of six-persons to try cases of assault, and bat
tery.-surety of the peace, and perhaps petty
larceny cases,—the jurors to decide upon the
nature and amount of punishment in cases of
conviction. This might relieve the Court,hut it
would probably greatly increase the expenses
to the county. If the party demanding a jury
trial of this desbription before an Alderman,
could be compelled to deposit the probable
,anount of costs before trial, the scheme might
answer, but if costs could always be saddled
on to the lroad shoulders of the county, the
temptation to magistrates to " increase their
:busineirs and the emoluments of &l ice would
be too strong to be resisted. Petty cases
would increase instead of diminish. If we had
a House of Correction, where those mulct iu
costs might " work it out," we would not ob
ject to the plan, but it is not desirable that the
crowd of idlers which now throngs our jails
supported at the expense of the honest, indus
trious citizens, should be increased. The most
feasible remedy for the evils complained of,
appears to be for the people to ask the Legis , ,
lature for the power to elect au additional law
judge. if the facts as they exist were properly
laid before them, there could be no hesitation
on the part of that body. A few statistics
taken fnarn tlie dockets of the courts would
convince them of the necessity of the meas.

that noble band of patriotic women, the "Ladies

ing the accomplishment of this truly national
object. The leading men of the land, such as
Edward Everett, arc lending their aid, and the
Masonic fraternity of Virginia have submitted
to the Association a proposition which has
been accepted of, the feasibility and practi
cal result of which there can be no doubt. It
is proposed thateach member of the Masonic
fraternity ih the United States pay one dollar
in aid of the purchase of Mt. Vernon, the

with an average membership of 8000 each,

with the discharge of this precious Masonic
duty." Thus writes the Secretary of the
Grand Lodge of Virginia, where this move
ment was initiated.
Such aid as this will command success to
the Mt. Vernon Association, and others who
are not Masons will rejoice to lend their aid
to a purpose so pure and noble, and so con

Soimi days ago a bill supplementary to the
geherat: banking law'of this State, passed in
1850, was introduced in the Senate by Mr.
Wilkins. The following is a brief abstract of
The first section of the bill proposes to limit the
divideJ-1;2 of the banks to eight per cent. per
:Mlllllll, clear of State tax, on the capital. The
second section provides that the reserved or con.
tingent fund shall bo published semi-annually,
arid within three months after publication shall
he investea in the loans of this State, or those of
the federal government, and deposited with the
A Editor General, who shall collect the interest
and pay it respectively to the banks entitled to
receive it.. The securities so deposited with the
Auditor General to be sold by public sale when
ever the banks suspend—or so much as any banks
suspending deposited—to be applied to the re
demption of said bank's bills. The third section
prohibits the purchase, directly or indirectly, by
any bank, savings fund, insurance or trust com
pany, of any cf the notes of the incorporated
hanks of this State at less than par, under a
penalty of $5OO to $lOOO. The furlh section
makes it unlawful for a bank to acquire its own
stock, except in payment of debts to itself, in
which ease such stock shall be sold within ninety
days. Banks holding their own stock at the time
of the passage of this act shall dispose of the
same within one year, or as soon as par can be
obtained therefor. Section fifth prohibits dis
counting whenever the circulation exceeds by
three to one the coin. Section sixth prohibits
the banks from receiving bank notes of less de
nomination then ten dollars. Section seventh
amends the 48th section of the general banking
law, so as to make it accord with the foregoing
provisions. Section eighth makes perpetual the
provisions of the law of October last, requiring
the hanks to make and publish weekly and
monthly statements. Section ninth confines the
discounting of bills of exchange to the votes of
the directors of the banks at stated or special
meeting, and to bills having not more than ninety
days to run. Section tenth to obviate the com
plaint that the banks discount too largely in
foreign bills of exchange, proposes to limit the
amount to per tentage left blank. Section
eleventh is a repetition of section second ; and
section twelfth makes it. a misdemeanor in the of
ficers of any bank to allow any overdrawing by
checks or drafts.
In speaking of this bill the Philadelphia
LtAlger says, that there are some wholesome
provisions in it, but as they are such as no
bank in the Commonwealth would voluntarily
accept, it seems to be hardly worth while to
speak in detail of any of them, there being
little probability of the passage of any law
that is not entirely agreeable to the interior
banks. We are so informed from Harrisburg,
and the fact that the very reasonable request
of the banks that have resumed the payment
of specie, to be relieved from the unjust pro
' vision of the relief law requiring them to
take the depreciated bills of suspended banks
in payment of debts, has met with such op%
position as to render it probable, in the opin
ion of intelligent persons in Harrisburg, that
it will not he granted. Indeed there is appre
hension in some quarters that the unjust, and,
by sonic gord lawyers, believed unconstitu
tional provision, will he made perpetual. If
the interior banks have the power in the legisla
ture to depreciate their bills and force the
specie paying banks of the Commonwealth to
receive them as coin, discretion would seem
to dictate that the less said upon the subject
of hank reform this session the better.
AN article appeared in our paper the other
day stating the prig? of gas in Pirtsburgh to
be $2 per thousand feet. This error, of
course, would be patent to all consumers here,
but would not he so ci ar to parties abroad.
The price of gas in Pittsburgh is one dollar
and slaty cents per thousand feet—cheaper,
we believe, than any other city in the world.
Three months ago money could only be had
in New York at two per cent. a month, and
even higher in some cases. It is now said that
the brokers refuse it at live per cent, per an
um for a fixed time. The revival of business
in the spring will soon afford an avenue for
the useful employment of capital.
It is said that the Island of Madeira has
ceased to produce the vine, and from W. C.
Br 3 ant's last letter fromlSpain, we learn that
the grape has been destroyed by mildew. The
past year the fruit has suffered more than any
previous season, and if no remedy can be found
the culture of the vine must be abandoned. In
a few years it will be to the American Conti ,
nent that the world will look for its wines.
The valley of the Ohio and Mississippi, Texas,
California and perhaps most of the Sont ern
Slates will evLntnally become wine produ ere
to a much greatcr extent than at present, and
already the annual wine product of the Unted

are not liable to this complaint. It requires
many thousand dollars every year to keep
them sufficiently smooth to be piosible.
In Baltimore the large amount of $124,907
has been expended in repairing paved streets
in the last three years, and yet the city Com
missioner has laid before the Councils a list of
forty-seven streets which he discribes as " al
most, if not entirely, impassable." This keep ,
ing up of streets in our large cities is an ex
pensive business. We have found it so iu our
own city, the streets of which are in as bad
condition as those of any city in the Union,
New York not excepted. The new paving law,
passed by the Legislature last winter, will
probably give us better streets hereafter, but
the improvement will necessarily be gradual.
irattlan Depredations in Texas
Startling intelligence has been received at
Austin, Texas, of Indian depredations in
Brown county, of that State. Five persons
bad been murdered in cold blood, and the sets
tiers generally, alarmed at the unchecked
enormities of the savages, dividing into three
separate parties, had taken refuge in the adja
cent forts. The legislature of Texas has pass
ed a bill for the raising and equipment of . one
hundred men, and an appropriation for the
purpose of seventy-five thousand dollars. A
public meeting had been held in Austin,
when resolutions were adopted, urging the
legislature to provide the most ample and epees
dy means for the protection and security of
the frontier setlements.
THE CENTRAL BANK.—The gentlemen who
were to have taken the stock required to set the
wheels of this institution in motion, having failed
to make their apperance, the books have been
ologed fur the present. Application will be Ina&
to the Legislature for a reduction in the amount
of the capital stock to $lOO,OOO. If the ap
plication is granted, and there is no good reason
why it should not be, there is no question th
the requisite amount of stock to put the bank in
operation would be at once subscribed. And
what is of equal importance, it_would be taken
by our citizens, and the institution placed under
the control of men of whose honyty and integ
rity of purpose there could be no question. The
citizens of. Blair county want a "solid" bank or
none at all.

A. Singular CirCUMEltalite
We find in the Boston Journal, the following
singular circumstance, as having occurred on
board the brig Helen Jane, on the passage from
Boston to Honduras:
"Capt. Nickerson relates a singular adventure
with the steward of the vessel on the outward
passage, which somewhat enlivened the usual
dull monotony of ocean It appears that a
white man, having an AMerican protection, and
giving his name as Hawes Crowell, of West
Dennis, Cape Cod, shipped at this port in the
capacity of steward, and received his advanced
wages before going on board. Tho vessel pro
ceeded to sea, and on the morning of the first
day out the steward was, missing, supposed by all
on board to have fallert into the sea during•the
night, and drowned. Accordingly another was
appointed to do his duty and everything went on
without suspicion. The voyage continued pros
perously, and nothing occurred to admonish the
captain that his cargo was leaking in a very 1111-
usual manner, and becoming daily beautifully
less by an operation which might well be com
pored to some late financial manoeuvring ashore.
It seems, however, that after some days one
of the crew accidentally discovered that the
cargo in the hold had been broken into, and an
empty basket of champagne was found, and other
indications of r Thbery. , The captain's attention
was immediately called' to the fact, and he of
course suspected the crew of committing the
depredation, and instantly called them to an ac
count, but nothing could be olioted from the in
vestigation, to fix the crime on any of the crew,
who stoutly denied all knowledge of the matter.
Thus the affair rested until their arrival at Trux-
illo, 22 days after leaving Boston. On the first
night after anchoring, the crew were suddenly
startled by the appearance in the forcastle, of
the lost steward, and so firmly convinced were
the frightened sailors of the death of their ship
mate, that they all instantly fled ou deck, from
the supposed apparition, and told the captain
These fears, however, were soon quieted, for the
steward had really appeared, and upon being
questioned, confessed that he secreted himself
in the hold on rho first day out, under the intlu
ence of delirium tremens, and for 22 days fel
lowing had lived luxuriously on champagne,
raisins, ham, &c , dining sumptuously every day,
and had enjoyed what on shore would be called
a " bonder." Ile mmsumed during the voyags
eight, baskets of champ:tip, six boxes of raisins,
and oilier things in p3rportion. He was left in
the bands of the United States Consul; and would
be sent home for trial. The loss to the daptain
will amaunt to about $250.
The name of Crowell is probably assumed, as
the prisoner is undoubtedly English 110 was

OIL FliaNl A New Sooner:.--An important
branch of manufacturing at Marseilles is the
production of oil from peanuts, and for mak
ing soap it is said to be preferable to the
other seed oils. The shell is not removed, but
is crushed with the kernel. In the process of
extracting the nil, the nuts are subjected to
several operations. They are first passed through
a series of crushing cylinders, and then are
crushed again nutter millstones After being
thus treated, they are ultieed in wrappers made
of hogs' or gnats' hair and then put into hydraul
ic presses, which express the oil, and it flow.; off
into a bucket. In the centre of the bucket rises
a tube nearly lb the height of the rim which
tube passes through the bottom of th&bucket
and fits as a socket upon a large tube or pipe,
from which the oil is constantly being pumped into
vary large casks. The use of the tube in the buck
et is to cause the heavier parts of the oil, together
with all refuse matter to sink to the bottom,
while none but the purer parts of the oil pas
into the large tube or pipe. There is no process
of clarification. The oil remains in the casks
from six to ten days without being touched, at
the end of which time it is found to he clear.
The nuts are crushed and pressed three times,
at each pressure the superior nut yielding a dif
ferent quality of oil, and it is only after the third
pressure that the cake is formed. The oil result
ing from the first pressure of the nut is used for
eating; that from the second pressure for burn
ing ; and that from the third for making soap.

Pacific Hotel Burned—Loos of Life
Sr. Louts, February 20.—Thu Pacific Hotel was
burned at throe o'clock this morning. Eight or ton
persons were killed, and many were seriously in
jured, by jumping from the windows. It is impos
sible to ascertain now the particulars or names of the
killed and wounded.
The burning of the Pacific Hotel proves to be a
much more terrible calamity than reported this morn
ing. About one hundred persons were in the house,
between forty and fifty of whom are missing. The
following are the names of the persona so far known
to 13e .ktiled : Bruce M'Nitt, Birkbart Worst, Paul
Sterril, Mrs. Jenny Jones and child, all of St. Louis;
Mr.'Johnston, of Chicago; Henry Rochester and T.

Mr. Towns, William Turner, and Sharpe, the watch
man of tho house.
The lire caught in the drug store under the hotel
and the flames spread so rapidly before the inmates
could be roused that the stairways were enveloped by
the fire and all egress was cut off, except at the win
dows. Many leaped front the third story and were
horribly mangled or instantly killed, and many more
were unable even to reach tie windows, and were
burned in their rooms. Several more bodies are sup-
posed to be in the ruins, and hundreds of excited
men are energetically engaged removing the rubbish.
The wounded were promptly taken charge of by their
friends, or sent to the hospital. where their injuries
were immediately attended to. Several of the wound
ed cannot possibly recover. The loss of property is
upwards of $50,000.

pose of holding meeting, when a strong odor was
observed. Efforts wore made to discover the leak
age of the gas. Light was applied to the metre,
when a blaze burst forth, but was extinguished by a
bucket of water. Quiet had been somewhat restored,
when a tremendous explosion occurred, tearing up
the floor, shattering the walls, rind making a perfect
