—One of the latest cranks to turn up
in Washington hailed from New Y'ork,

claimed to be the rightful President of

treat him as be bad. aud as soon as
the Senate met he was going to take
the chair and address the Senate on
the subject." When informed that the
Senate had adjourned not to meet again
in December, he left, saying, he would
go home to return again. He did not
belong to either of the great political
parties, but was an old-time Whig,
with strong Know-Nothing proclivities
and was of the opinion that if leaders
of tbe Republican and Democratic par
ties were not put out of the way they
would bring on another war. He add

Karns City, has patented an automatic
grain and liquid weighing scale, in
this weighing scale a revolving wheel,
provided with buckets and held station
ary by spring catches for the reception
in a bucket of the material to be weigh
ed, is automatically dumped. Combin
ed with the revolving bucket wheel is
a pivoted delivery spout arranged be
neath a hopper whicb supplies material
to the wheel. This spout has a coun
ter-balance arm or weight which serves
to adjust it into a non-delivering posi

the rack of the scale commenoes to sinl*
by the weight of material in a bucket.
A spring also acts upon the spout in a
like direction. The ascent of the'dump

said spout into a delivering position.
The apparatus is also provided with a
cam shaft which, on being turned, caus
es a scraper or scooper at its middle to
carry small finishing quantities of the
material to be weighed into the bucket,
after which the rack and bucket con
tinue their descent and the spring
catches which hold the bucket wheel
are rtilcpsed by hammers, and tbe buck

—The Newark, N. J., bank failure
calls attention to the nature of existing
provisions for the protection of the
public. It is commonly supposed that
'business men' take greater care and
adopt better methods for the protection
of their interests in various corpora
tions with which they deal than the
Government in its efforts to protect the
community. We hear a great deal of
tbe excellence of business methods, and
of the importance of applying them to
the conduct of public affairs. When
ever an orator declares that the Govern
ment ought to do this or that 'just as
a partical man conducts bis own busi
ness,' the audience applauds, and it is
thought that the speaker has said a
very good thing. Yet scarcely a
month passes without some startling
revelation of fraud, occasioned by the
habitual failure of eminent business
ruen to.look after their own interests,
Do directors direct? Tbe question
has been asked more than once.
It was asked when the Bank of Cali
fornia went down, when the Glasgow-
Bank collapsed, and when the Bank of
the State of Missouri closed its doors.
It has been asked a thousand times,
when other banking institutions have
plundered tue public. The Newark
L-ase is fresh in mind, but not more
startling than others of comparatively
—The extraordinary deroaud for
Confederate bonds still continues, in
spite of the warning notes of the news
papers that fools are parting with their
money, and the fact that there is no
direct evidence that the alleged deposit
of Confederate funds in Europe has
any existence. The question whether
if it had any existence it would not be
forfeited to the United States Govern
ment and be beyond any claim by the
bondholders, seems too
remote to be considered by the confid
ing purchasers. The buying still goes
on. A Chicago dispatch states that a
New York firm is advertising there
for bonds at $2.50 per SI,OOO, and an
August dispatch says that large
amounts were bought there at $lO and
sll per SI,OO0 —a difference in price
showing, perhaps, the greater faith in
the soundness of Confederate securities
that exists south of Mason and Dixon's
line. It appears from the statements
of Treasury officials that repeated ef
forts have been made in past years,
without success, to discover the alleged
Confederate treasure, but the suspicion
seems to survive that there was much
Confederate property in Europe at the
close of the war which has never been
accounted for and which Mr. Jefferson
Davis's visits to Europe may have
something to do with. Meantime
there comes a distinct denial from Lon
don that there is any doposit of this
nature in the Bank of England. The
new purchasers of Confederate bonds
may rest assured that if any such funds
are found anywhere, the United States
Government will enforce its own rights
in the matter.
—There is no change in the "charac
ter of the statement sent out by the
Treasurv Department in relation to the
national debt. The revenues continue,
—both the internal revenue and the
customs receipts being greatly in ex
cess of the estimates submitted by Mr.
Sherman to Congress,—and the re
duction of debt for the month of Octo
ber is amongst the largest ever record
ed. The interest-bearing debt is now
(November Ist,) stated as follows:
Bonds at 6 per cent, continued
at 31 $ 161,870,030 00
Bonds at 5 per cent, continued
at 3J 401,504,000 00
Bonds at 41 per cent 260,000,000 00
Bonds at 4 |>er cent 733,749,750 0J
Hi-funding certificates 51>8;050 00
Navy pension fund 14,0:X),000 00
Total $1,566,728,750 00
Comparing this to the statement of
October Ist, which showed $1,583,102,-
250 principle debt, it will be peen that
the actual reduction of principal in the
month was $16,373,500. liy the ordi
nary form of making the statement,
however, showing the 'debt, less cash
in the treasury,' the net reduction of
the month was £13,321,458.87. Tak
ing the latter figures as the best for
tbe purpase of such observation, it will
be seen that we are advancing in the
payment of the debt at the rate of one
hundred and sixty millions per annum.
Or, if we take the expejience of the
four months of the present fiscal year,
we are doing more than that Since
July Ist, the debt has been diminished
$55,004,345.08, or at the rate of one
hundree and millious a year.
The fignres tell their own story. They
may readily be applied to the items in
the statement of the interest-bearing
debt. In less than twelve months,
the continued six per cents, will be
paid. In a little more than thirty- i
six months, the continued five per cents
will be paid. That is to say, that, by j
' the autumn of 1884, there will be no
I debt payable, tbe nearest bonds then
j being the four and one-half per cents.
| of 1881, whose payment will be seven
j full years distant,—unless the Secreta
ry is to go into market and buy them
at a premium.
The P. it W. R. R. are now grad
ing the connecting link from Butler
to Evansburg, and by the first of Jan
uary, 1882, the F. & B. R. R. will run
through to Bradford, thus making a
rout from the upper oil regions to Pitts
burg shorter by 140 miles than now.
Will not this" bo an inducement for
business men to locate here?
Tie R. R. managers of the P. & W.

They have built a round house and
will extend the shops and raise tbe
depot, moving the latter back so as to
give more room in front; besides which,
they are laying new tracks and are
putting the road in good repair
With all these things established
facts, what is to hinder these capital?
ists from putting in their money, when
they can only get per cent, for U.
S. Bonds ? If they have not the brains,
let them employ experienced men to
manage the business for tbetu, and
then they will be doing good to the:r
fellow-men, and besides making a rec
ord that will always be remembered by
those whom they helped to make happy
by giving them'woik to do.— farktr
—During the last week the price of
wheat has declined about ten cents on
Duncan Stewart, of Detroit, writes to say
that the winter wheat in Michigan iieyei look
ed so well as now. He adds:
The speculators of Vienna tried the Chicago
trick of tilling the warehouse there with wheat
to produce a railroad blockade and catch tho
shorts by making it iinposible for them to de
liver even if they had the wheat on hand in
the country. Fortunately the railroa.ls and
warehouse are state property, and the Govern
ment directors just trebled the sot rage
charges and broke the b '.ok of the ooqspinioy
to rob the working wan of his fcinall wages by
an artificial inurease in the price ol liis bread.
They declared that there was a shortage in
stead ot'a surplus in the crops of Austro-Hun
garv, but it turned out that the lying scoun
drels had on the 30th of September 1,900,000
bushels in store in iVieni.a, against none on the
same day in 1880.
i On the same day Paris had of wheat and
flour 1,880,000 bushels against 520,000 bushels
on the same day 1880.
Boroeaux was reported without stocks for
two months Shipments were sent from all
quarters, when it turned out the storehouses
were full. All the lighters in the harbor
have been used for storage, and many vessels
are now lying in harbor unable to discharge for
want of storage room, and the owners of the
wheat are obliged to pay damage.
In about two weeks the head of the Califor
nia and Oregon avalanche of 60,000,000 bushels
will strike Europe, and about the same time
the sailing fleet from the Azof and Black Seas
with the first installment of Russia's 100.000,-
000 bushels, and the tail end of last year's crops
of India. Australia, Kgypt, New Zealand, and
and Chili will keep dropping in for the next
two months, and in sixty days from this time-
Australia will begin to ship her new crop; then
India, then New Zealand, etc., with their new
crops. In the meantime our farmers hold on
for famine prices promised by the 'bulls,' and
the bovine animals hold on to their dear-bought
purchases, But before tliey get rid of thpru
not a bull among them will make a decent ox,
and I doubt whether a three months' old calf
could be manufactured out of any oi" them.
Most of them will ask like old Dogberry, to be

Hugh Workman and Joseph Hous
ton, two well-known citizens of our
ancient borough, who In their day
lived on opposite sides of south Main
street and were of opposite politics,
once made a bet of a yoke of oxen on
the result of the State election. Hous
ton having lost the bet ordered his
boy to drive the oxen across the street
and deliver them to Workman. The
latter came out, looked at the oxen
and 3aid to the boy, "drive them back
and tell your master he must fulfill the
bargain—our bet was a 'Jjoke of oxen
and I'm not going to take the animals

immediately yoked up the oxen and
sent the boy over the street with them.
Workman then said to him—"that
makes it all right—now drive them
back, I can't think of taking my old
iriend's yoke of oxen away from him."

WASHINGTON, November I.—There
have been several applications at the
Treasury Department recently by per
sons to make contracts to collect for the
Government the balance remaining in
the Bank of England to the credit of
the defunct Confederate States. One
man of this city, named Agar, had a
contract of this kind made with Sec
retary Sherman. The contract expired
last September and Agar failed to get
the money. It is said that this money
was deposited in some peculiar manner
and controlled by five of the trustees,
who now collect the interest annually,
and that Jeff. Davis and Judah I*.
Benjamm are two of these trustees. It
is with the hope of getting this money
that the English capitalists are buying
the Confederate bonds, and i-hat Beu
jumin has been retained by these capi
talists as their lawyer, and he thi iks
he can recover the money in payment
of Confederate bonds. Solicitor llay
nor, of the Treasury, iutends to call
the British Government's attention to
the money, with a view of recovering
it for the United States.

NEW YORK, November 2.—The Hol
land hydrogen process, which involves
the disintegration of water and the lib
eration of hydrogen by naphtha gas, is
developing some remarkable results,
and appears to be an unqualified suc
cess. The claims of the iuventors at
first seemed extravagant, but now are
admitted by good scientific authority.
Within a month a locomotive built
specially for a thorough test of the pro
cess will be placed upon the Brooklyn,
Coney Island and Flatbush Railroad,
and it, is expected that its wonderful
achievements will effect a revolution
in transportation and industrial opera
The company that owns the patent
has applied the process successfully to
open fire-places, to the ordinary beating
apparatus of a dwelling and to ranges
for cooking. I have seen the operation
in the latter case, where the entire ma
chinery (two retorts) occupies the
space of a man's closed hands, and the
process of lighting a fire consists mere
ly in turning two stop-cocks in narrow
pipes that supply water and naphtha
and scratching a match, and in two
minutes there is heat sufficient to cook
a steak. No kindling wood is needed;
there are no coals or ashes, and when
the fire has served its purpose a turn of
the thumb-screw extinguishes it. If
connection is made with a gas recepta
i cle, enough gas to light up a fair-sized
house for twenty-four hours can.le
made while the meal is cooking. The.-e
domestic experiments illustrate the ex
, tent of the field to which the process
may be applied; but the inventors haye
that if they wished to compel
a prompt acknowledgment of their suc
cess it cou'd best be done by applying
j it to transportation and travel on the
railway. If water as fuel supercedes
coal and wood in the locomotive everv
railway line, steamship company and
j all who use stationary engines will
! have to adopt the new method.

lo handle, a request to put them In communi
cation with one or more suitable persons In this
locality, to act as agents in introducing several
ol their patent household urtielcs to this com
munity, and after consideration, we take this
method to comply with their request. The firm
are manufacturers of a large number of house
hold articles, which they introduce lo the pub
lic by means of agents, having sometimes as
many as 1,000 persons in their employ. The
particular articles which they seek to introduce
here, at this time, are : Brown's Peerless Sifter,
generally aeknowled to be the best in the
world of which nearly one million were sold
du-ing the last year ; the Kitchen li'teen, the
latest and best invention In Coil Oil Lamps,
and the only absolutely S ifc Lamp made ; the
Centennial Cuke and B.ike Pan, an article

Egu Beater, which always sells at sight, and
the new Alto Relievo Brorze Profile Cast of
JAMES A. GAKFIEI.I), with memorial
frame, the best selling article ever put into the
hands of an agent, the best of all the portraits,
cliromos or sled engravings that have been
offered. It is a truer likeness of the martyred
hero than any we have ever seen before, and ils
price brings it within the reach of all. For
