The Liquor Bill—lts Main Features.
Our readers are aware that the mem
bers of the State Legislature have been
'tinkering,' ever since they went to liar
rtsburg nt a new License bill for the re
tailing of ardent spirits. Every low dein
agog on the people send to the Legislature
must have his fingers in the Liquor busi
ness, but they do not want to, or cannot,
concoct anything of a permonent charac
ter on this question, but keep it continu.
ally before tho public as mere political
'gammon.'
The following are the main fewures of
the Liquor Bill, us it has passed both
[louses :
Licenses to he granted in Philadelphia
by the Board of Appraisers, in Allegheny
county by the Associate Judges and Tree_
surer, and in other counties by the Judg
es of the Courts, with a qualified discre
tionary power over the applications.
The minimum prier of licenses. with
sales of over $lOOO to be $25, and under
$lOOO . to be $l5. In Philadelphia and
Pittsburg, the minimum to be $5O —llO.
telt and taverns to be classified and rated
according to the sales. On sales of $lO.
000, the license to be $400; on sales of
$BOOO, the license to be $250; on sales of
$2,000, the license to be $5O.
Retail brewers to be rated as eating
houses. Appraisers to be appointed to
examine and detect adulterated and drug
o•ed liquors, and the sole of such liq .ors
prohibited and punished.
We presume that, after the Governor
shall sign this bill, that it will minim in
force one year and no longer- After the
meeting of the next Leg,islitture, some in
dividual. in hopes of making a •point.'
will concoct something to take the place
of the above, and so it will go on to the
end.

The Poughkeepsie Girl in a Trance.
The New York Post, of not evening says
On Friday the Pougnkeepsie girl revived a
s tale, and Mr Garrison, who was present advi
sed that she should be raised up, on that the
blood would circulate, when she exclaimed,
"Don't toneh me: see Jesus, see Jesus ain't
he beautiful T he is sitting on a dazzling throne
—angels are giving him praise—and then ex
claimed, "Pin going back again," and ag , tia
swooned. While looking at what she thought
to be hell, she said, "Jesus reached forth his
lily•whitc hand, and dragged me Irwin the pit.
In heaven is a tree—the angles are climbing
pp and down, giving praise. My friends," she
then exclaimed, "get ready, get ready—the
judgement—day is near at hand. Ido not ex
pect to be byre with my friends long; and if
you knew whai I knew, no one would live any
limy, in their sins." She attends meeting
regularly,and is getting tjuite strong. Many
in Poughkeepsie believe that she was laboring
under HUMAN excitement ; but she'll'. lived
the last seven months with Mrs. Garrison, and
,inring that time has never once complained
ol• sickness, and she is also a very strong 111 hi

at the same church, two persons also, while at
the altar, fell back in a trance, but did not re•

The Level of the Great Lakes.
Mk Of
There is said to be a mysterious rise and
fall of the great level of the American Mims,
which has long occupied the attention of many
scientific Men. In addition to the variations
which depend upon the changes of swims
there is also a local, fitful, irregular °win ion
°fa few inches to a few feet, not to he predic
ted, its period of oscillation being from three.
to five minutes, and which continues from oue
to twenty four hours. In the course of sever
al years' observations no wave has been mien
over tune feet in height in stormy weather,
and m calm weather over one and ono half
feet. The average interval hits been found to
be four and one half minutes. Tho waves in.
variably come in from the open sea in a line
parallel with the shore. The phenomenon
has not yet been accounted for; but Mr. Clots
Whittlezbey. of Cleveland, Ohio, who has re:

thinks that the causes are to be sought in the

TREASURER'S SALE Or UNSEATED
LANDS IN EUNTINGDON 00.
A number of our subscribers hearing
these sales talked of while in town atten
ding court, called on us for information
respecting them. This informationis rep
resented to us as being highly important,
and such as none but designing specula•
tors would seek to concea I him the people.
As we profess to guard the public inter
est as much as our own, tee feel bound to
publish the list of land subject to sale by
the Treasurer, at our own cost. This will
not only extend the publicity of these im
portant sales three fold, but it will pro.
mote the ends of justice, by reducing the
chances of 'lat bargains' to heartless spec
ulators. We linen gratuitously rendered
similar service heretofore; in this instance
ge do it zheerfully and we shall do so
hereafter whenever the public interest re
quires it, Though this course has uni-
Jormly excited the Ire of 'money grubs'
and their convenient Jackal's, time people
hove nobly sustained us; and enabled ue
