OUR CIRCULATION. ;v.r iha nforninl !on of ndvertlsersand others who may be interested in know ing, we will state thnt the present circu lation of The TniES lsbctween eighteen hundred and nineteen hundred copies each week. Ex-Fresident Grant arrived in Liverpool on the 28th ult. He was re ceived by the Mayor who extended to him the hospitality of the city which General Grant accepted. , The Republican State Central com mittee, assembled at Harrlsburg, Ta., Wednesday, decided to hold the State Convention at that place on the 29th of next August. At Montreal, Canada, a very im portant decision was made last week by the Court, which mulcted in $500 dam ages and costs member's of the Stone cutters' Association who conspired against non-union fellow-workmen. This la a decision that will have the ef fect to check the interference of trade union members with those who do not belong to their organization in the Do minion at least . It seems to be better in Rome cases to be an Englishman rather than a citizen of the United States. During the in famous attack on Judge Chisholm and his family in Mississippi, there was one man killed who was a British subject. That government is already asking for Information on the subject, while neither the State nor our National government has as yet taken any steps to punish the assassins, or prevent a recurrence of the outrage. , ., . : Ox last Monday in the Presbyterian Assembly at Chicago, the Committee on Church Extension made a report, show ing gross receipts of $100,000, and a cash balance of 520,000. One hundred and seventy-two churches have been erected during the past year, with an average paid to each church of $500. Four hun dred and fifty-two churches have no house of worship, but depend on the Board of home missions. The Board needs $150,000 for next year, and appeals to churches to raise it. A Boston paper has the generosity to pay Philadelphia the following hand some compliment : There is one thing that is.beyond all dispute, and that Is the go-aheadness of the Philadelphians and Pennsylvanians of late. They carried the Centennial along with wonderful tact and persist ent energy; they have returned the ' million and a-half loan to the United States government ; have secured a Per manent Exhibition, unexcelled by any in the world; and now they have organ ized an association to promote the ex porting of American manufactured goods of every description. One of the causes . which drove the Central Railroad of New Jersey into the hands of a receiver has just come to light. For the past four years the com pany has been systematically robbed of over one hundred dollars daily by a combination consisting of ferry masters, conductors, ticket agents, respectable residents of Jersey City and Newark, and merchants whose places of business are on the streets near the ferry. The number of men banded together, and their apparent respectability and stand ing in society, for a time defeated the efforts of detectives to fasten guilt ou them, but last Monday night two of the leading spirits of the affair, one said to be a trusted official of the road, were' arrested at Newark. Details of this systematic robbery will probably be made public within a short time. Prisoners' Rights. Judge Biddle, of Philadelphia, has in formed the District Attorney that he would not hear any case where the com monwealth was not represented by its proper officer. He a'dded : "In the criminal courts the only offenses tried are those against the Commonwealth, and they are not to be prosecuted to suit the vindictiveness of private suitors, but the demands of public justice. The of. fleers of the Commonwealth are under the obligation of an oath to see that the prosecution is conducted with that view alone, and they ure responsible to the law for its proper performance. A pris oner in our Stute is entitled to imparti ality from the prosecuting officer as well as from the Judge and Jury. When the District Attorney desires to associate private counsel with himself in the pros eeutlon, for publio reasons, permission can always be obtained from the court. The Old Three Cent Coin. . A Washington dispatch last Thursday stated that the small three cent pieces coined in 1853, which disappeared with the other silver coins when the fractional paper currency was Issued, are now coming back Into circulation in such quantities as to prove a source of great annoyance to postmasters in different sections of the country. Bo troublesome have they become that the Post-ofllce Department has issued a circular in forming postmasters that these, with the other minor silver, nickel and cop per coins of the United States are re deemable when presented in sums of twenty dollars or any multiple thereof to the Mint In Philadelphia, the Treas urer of the United States, or to any Assistant Treasurer. Thieving Officials. The auditors appointed by the county Court a year ago to make an audit of the Luzerne county finances for the past seven years, have finished their labors, and the report reveals a record of official dishonesty unparalleled In the previous history of the county, and shows how, for seven years past, the commissioners, treasurers, sheriffs, clerks and others, have stolen, boldly, large sums from the treasury. The thefts took all possible shnpes, such as bogus contracts, changing rec ords, altering figures, retaining taxes, &c. Positive proof was furnished, by the auditors of $50,000 Stolen from time to time, but the full amountof the seven1 years steal will doubtless reach $100,000. Some of the dishonest officials, Includ ing an ex-treasurer, three county com missioners, a clerk and a former auditor, have been already con victed and are now in prison. The people are determined to bring the perpetrators of these crimes to justice. Attempt to Murder a Family. Philadelphia, May 28. Theresa Weiss, aged 45 years, was arrested to day charged with attempting to poison the family of Mr. Slegel, No. 215 George street, by sprinkling corrosive sublimate over some strawberries, butter and other articles of food, and also putting some of It in a pitcher of milk which was to be used by the family for supper. Rosa Bishop, aged 18, saw some of the poison adhering to the pitcher and swallowed a mouthful of the milk. Mrs. Knew, who resides in the house, also tasted the milk. They were both seized with a burning sensation in the stomach, but receiving medical aid were soon relieved. Quite a large quantity of the posion was found on the person of the prisoner. She had some difficulty with the family, which led Mr. Seigel to serve on her a notice to leave the premises. A Short Wedded Life. On Sunday, April 1st, 1877, Rev. Abram Long,' Pastor of the Bethel Church In Donegal township, was called to the house of Mrs. Beatty to unite In holy wedlock John Eichly, Jr., to Martha Beatty. The wedding ceremony was performed and to the dismay of every one (says the groom) the bride re. fused to further sanction the marriage by insisting on living separately from her husband. Over a month has elapsed since the happy (V) event, and now the groom appears in a card which we pub lish elsewhere, warning the publio not to trust his wife on his account as he will pay no debts contracted by her. The groom is not 20 years old while the lady is 20. Marietta Time. A Very Sad Case. Two children (a girl and a boy) of Ja cob F. Mentzer, of Lancaster, died sud denly of something like diptheria, and were buried last week. During the double interment a gang of drunken rowdies fought in an open Held adjoin ing theburying-ground, interrupting the funeral services by horrible paths and imprecations, for which several of them were arrested. The parents had scarcely returned home when the third child died of the same disease as the first two. A Novel Will Case. Honesdale, Pa., May 29. The Fos ter will case, which from its novel feat ures excited such wide Interest through. out this section of Pennsylvania.has been decided against the contestants. This was the case in which Isaac P. Foster, a wealthy citizen of this village, died, and no will was found. W. H. II. Foster, a son, Insisted that the deceased had made a will, and the alleged document was re produced by C. S. Minor from notes given him by the deceased, from which the missing will had been drawn. This was admitted to probate by Register Barnes. It deviBtd the bulk of the prop erty owned by the testator to his son W. H. Foster, leaving a comparatively small portion to bedivided among a large number of heirs. These latter appealed from the decision of the register , and contested the document, which they de clared was no will, taking the ground that Mr. Foster had destroyed the will he made previous to his death in Decem ber last. The case came up at the May session of the county court, and the de rision of the register in admitting the document to probate was affirmed, the will reproduced being held to be a valid Mill. Judge Dreher, before whqm, most of the Molly Mogul res were tried, deliv ered the opinion. Associate Judge Av ery dissented from the decision. The case will doubtless be carried higher. 3T A deacon In one of the Newburg churches was deeply Interested in the sermon last Sunday night. He sat In the corner of his pew, two little boys came next, and beyond them was a sharp-vlsaged woman. He leaned back, rested his arms on the back of the seat, touched somebody's hand, and, suppos ing it to be a child's fist, covered it with his own and pressed it. Suddenly the lady In the pew shrieked; "You had better look out ; I'll slap your face ;" and the bewildered deacon received a stinging blow across the mouth. The deacon sought refuge in the open air, and the congregation gossiped after the benediction. Who Owns this Gold I A man in Dearborn county, Ind., bought a house and some land of anoth er, and in tearing up the floor of the house found" $1,400 In gold, which the former owner had hidden there, and for got to remove when he sold the proper ty. The finder insists that this is one of the appurtenances thereunto appertain ing. The former owner resists this in court. A Heavenly Show. Albany, N. Y., May 28. There was one of the most extensive displays of aurora borealis here to-night ever seen in this section. The atmosphere was so strongly impregnated with electricity that communication was kept up for some time with New York, Boston and Montreal over the Western Union tele graph wires without the use of the bat tery. The sky was brilliantly illumina ted. Miscellaneous News Items. Montreal, May 80. Another disastrous conflagration occurred at one o'clock this morning, by which about sixty houses were destroyed and about the Berne number of lamilies rendered homeless, IW The daughter of ex-Governor Henderson, of lexas, has died from the exposure and anxiety of being lost in the woods, witn tier almost belpless lather, and going two days witnout lood. tS Frederick Vilkinuinc;, a German. aged thirty-three years, hanged himself a tew days since in jNew York city, because ills partner in business cbarged liim with defalcation in regard to a saloon Haktford, Ct, May 80.

Kinlngor of Tay. lor township, Cambria county, on the charge of having criminal intercourse with a ten-year old daughter of a man named Keefer, and to whom the child la now enciente. A remarkably cool-headed and fear- loBs woman of Covington, Ky., in order to prevent her dog, which bad suddenly gone roao, irora running loose ana biting any body, got it into the house and held it down by the throat for more than two hours until her husband came home. The dog was then taken to the river and drowned. IW The Winston, N. C. Sentinel says a child in this vicinity was lost week stung or bitten by a locust, and died from the effects two days afterwards.

After he had been initiated he was in the most exuber ant mood in the belief that he bad been made a member of the order.

She left a paper setting forth ber reasons for refusing to live, in which she writes that sue was young and healthy tuat she had never felt the lack of love, of friends, of food or clothing.

JJucboslay, a Bohe mian, in the enjoyment of a prosperous business, requested him to accompany her to Baltimore Cemetery to adorn the grave of ber husband with turners, lie declined, and, as on previous occasions, appeared melancholy at her attention to the memory of ber former spouse. She went to the cemetery, however, strewed the grave with flowers, and spent several hours in the grounds. On returning she found the house closed. An entrance was forced, and the corpse of Duchoslay found hanging to a wardrobe. The body was warm when found, but efforts to restore animation fail- Mr. Duchoslay was fifty-two years old. Barah C. Cregg was a graduate of (Jane mil College : un tue lira ot (Septem ber, 1876, she was married to George Elliott, contrary to the wishes ot her father.

The little girl went into the room where Mrs. Elliott was, and said she wanted to go to sleep. Mrs. Elliott in duced her to go out by promising to give ber nice dresses and ribbons, and tuen she shot herself in the heart. The Dictionary as an Instructor. We notice as a matter well worth mentioning that at the recent great pub lishers' trade sale In New York, tho books that were most in demand and brought the best prices were Webster's Dictionaries, from the famous Quarto to the neat and handy pocket edition. This fact Is a good indication of the almost universal popularity of these books, and of the growing publio de mand for them. It Indicates also a fact of far greater importance, and that is the interest tho people are taking in the study of their own language. This is encouraging, as there is no branch of education that is now and has been so much neglected as the common branches of spelling and denning. It is often as tonishing and grievous to see how grosslv ignorant are children and youth and even men and women, of the or- thogiaphy, pronunciation and meaning of ordinary words and phrases. They cannot express their thoughts for the want of words, and often they express thoughts very different from what they intend, because they do not understand the words they employ. And very fre quently, from the same cause, they take no idea, or wrong Ideas, from what they read or near. The remedy for these evils is the proper training in the study of words.by the use of the Dictionary, and this train ing should begin as soon as thechild can distinguish between one word and an other, and continue Indefinitely. The apparatus for this study should.of course be the most complete and thorough to be had, and this is abundantly supplied in Webster's Dictionaries, which are justly recognized, wherever our lan guage is spoken, as the standard author ity hi English. Parent and teachers can in no other way so effectually or so cheaply promote the educational interests of their children, when of suitable age, as by putting in their hands any one of Webster 8 ecnooi Dictionaries, lor utiuy use in connection with the study of their lessons, and by placing on the family center table, or the teacher's desk as the authorative guide and standard, a copy of the Unabridged. The unabridged contains 8,000 Illustra tions, over 114,000 words In Its vocabu laries, and 10,000 words and meanings not in any other Dictionary ; theabrldg ed editions comprise ' the Primary,' wnica nas uie largest scale, ana whlcli 1ms some capital rules for spelling. "The Common School" Is similar, but larger, with tables of synonyms, Ac. " The High School," still fuller, with many useful tables', "The Academic" and " Counting-house" for advanced schools and for general home and business use. i ne latter lias some specially valuable commercial and financial tables. The little " Pocket" edition, with its bright gilt edges and morocco binding. Is trulv an invaluable pocket companion. It contains more man in,ooo words, rules for spelling, many abbreviations, words and phrases, proverbs, etc., ordinarily met with in the Greek, Latin and Mod ern languages. Whether it Is convenient or not to have copies of any of the other books of the series, we certainly recom mend mat an snouiu possess a copy of the Pocket, which, when not otherwise obtainable, may be had by mall, by in closing $1.00 to the publishers, Messrs. 1VIKON, J5LAKEMAV, TAYLOR ft CO., 138 and 140 Grand Street, New York.
