Curu Sugar MMiiufutiure.
We lat week alluded to the discovery recently
mado and patented, by which syrup and suar
can ! made from Indian corn. The last mail
briDgs us a fuller account of the same, which we
j CJpy below from the Iiufi'alo Commemal :
t Next after bread, there is no staple of food which
j enters so largely iute the consumption of civilized
f I fe, or which is so radical an element of g.-od living,
as sugar ; and any discovery which facilitates its
production, or tends to cheipeu its price to the ccn-
j turner, is a matter of great public Concern. The
' traJe and commerce iu this staple co . mo iity have
j feteadily increased for two hundred years, until it is
! cow one of the controlling interests in the World's
; commerce. Sugar is made largely from sugar car.e,
; although considerable quantities are manufactured
from beets as well as from the mnple. The annual
i product of maple sugar in the United States is 27,000
The total production of cane-sugar in 1853-9 was
estimate! at 1,307,600 tons, of which the United
j States produced 105,000. The total production of
, teet sugar in the same years was estimated at 357,-
OO'J tons, showing how largely this sugar staple en
! ters into the World's ctnsumption. And yet this
j pupply falls far short of the world's demand. This
admitted fact has for more than fifty years stimu
! lated the efforts of chemists and eavans to discover
; some new and more abundant source of suppiy, and
. one which would not be circumscribed by local cli
mate influences, as in the ca-e with .-ugar-cane. It
is weil known that the element or chemical base of
sugar, known to chemists as succharum, exists
j largely in a great variety of substances, and espe
j cialiy in all such as contain starch, including all the
1 cereal grains and many esculent vegetables, 'lhe
: existence of sugar in this form has long been known,
'. and, though frequent attempts have been made to
convert it into sugar in its common edible form, yet
" it has hitherto b-.iil- l the skill of t tie most eminent
chemists. It has been reserved. In wever, to the
present era, and to our own city of lijtlalo, to be-
come the time and place for the solution of this great
; chemical mystery, and the const quent contcriing
i upon the wot Id of so great a boon. About a year
i since, a learned, but obscure and poor German
chemist, residing iu this city, wrought out the great
problem, and successfully accomplished what the
world a chemists had
1 tury. His name is
vainly sougut lor nail a cen
1'rofcsscr Frederick W. Goess-
i We learn that a company has just been formed,
embracing many of the wealthiest men iu the city of
New ork, among them several of the principal
sugar-refiners, with a capital of one million dollars,
which has purchased Professor Goessiing's patent,
paying theiefor, to him and his associate proprietors,
; the nutii of ssG'X,0oX). Ti.ey propose to enter at once
j upon the manufacture of .yrup and sugar from corn
. by the process, upon a large scale, and to introduce
its manufacture throughout the country as fast ns
; expedient. Experiments have already succeeded in
. the production of at least three and a half gallons of
j fcyrup from a bushel of coin, and of a quality which
is pronounced by the most critical judges to be equal
iu every re-pect to the best syrups heretofore pro
, duoel from sugar-cane at the New Yoik refineries.
I An equivalent amount of granulated, first quality
1 suicar, it is claimed, can bo produced ; but we un
: derst ml that for the preseut the com puny will cou
fine its ellorts to the production of syiup. Active
1 preparations are being made, however, to enter upon
the extensive manufacture of sugar, and it is ex-
peeled that the company will be prepared to put the
j new staple into the market during the present win
i The annual corn harvests of the West have reached
j the fabulous quantity of one thousand millions of
' bushels a result so large and so far exceeding the
legitimate, healthy facilities of our internal com
' merce, ns to present a startling problem in regard to
' its disposition. The invention of Prof. Groessling
, happily solves this problem, favorable to the best
1 interest of mankind, and opens a golden road out of
, the dilemna which was closiug around us.
The corn crop of the West, limitless a? it may be
' in the future, is now destined to become the source
of the world's supply of sugar or its equivalent
pyrup, and the West the repository of untold wealth.
; The new era of sugar manufacture will, to a great
; extent, derauge tac old currents of trade. The
; West will become a great sugar-jroduciiig, as well
a? a great corn-growing region. Its great stable
will lie compacted both iu bulk and value, for the
manipulations of commerce.
The North will i freed from tribute to the world
for the purchase of one of the most important articles
of consumption, au -I ultimately become a controlling
exporter of this neffly discovered article, by reason
of possessing an almost entire monopoly cf the
: world's production of Indian corn. We are not over
: sanguine in this matter, if the new discovery we now
i first publicly announce shall prove all that is claimed
! for it, as we have no reason to doubt it will. The
world has long been striving and waiting for just
such an accomplishment, and its discovery at this
time and in this country, would seem to be only
another solution of the natural law of development
and supply, which seems ever to attend the world's
progtess and its gradually developing necessities.
The Passport System. The following was ofli
cially promulgated on the 17th of December :
Ji yurtmtttt uf Stutr, H (s.'ii.or?, Dec. 17.
The President directs that, except immigrant pas
sengers, directly entering an American port, by sea.
. no traveler shall hereafter be allowed to enier the
United States from a foreign country without a pass
port. If n citiz"n, the passport must be from this
Department, or from some United States Minister or
Consul abroad ; and, if an alien, from the compe
tent authority of his own country, the passport to be
countersigned by a diplomatic neLt or Consul of
the United Slates.
This regulation is intended to apply especially to
persons proposing to come to the United States from
the neighboring llritih p ovinces. Its observance
will be strict Iy enforced by nil officers, civil, mili
tary and naval, in the service of the Unite 1 States ;
iiioi trie State and municipal authorities are request
el to aid in its execution. It is expected here that
no immigrant passenger coming by sea, in the man
ner aforesaid, will be obstructed, or any other per
son who may set out on their way 'hither before in-teilig-nce
of this regulation could reasonably be ex
pected to reach the country from which they may
have started. William H. Sewarh,
Secretary of State.
Re-ilt of t;ie Wak. The New York llerall,
under the head of " Rlessings in Disguise," has the
following on the resul's of the war:
" In a great war like this, the individual is lost in
' the grandeur of the results. Private Jones labs and

: but tiie war sets thousau l of other merchints upon
their feet, tec what tins war has .aire a ly iionc for
the country. It has developed resources of which we
were pievioUsly ignorant. Iron, coal, copper and
saltpeter mines have been discovered in the South in
great numbers, and iu localities undreamed of befote
the war. Canals have been buiit like those upon the
Mississippi and at Dutch Gap, which were simply
impossible to private enterprise, and which will
greatly facilitate navigation. Harbors hitherto un

Soldiers turn editors and stirt newspipers iu the
enemy's country, and our generals take the .stump as
soon as they hue taken a city, an I proceed to in
8' met the pet pie they have conquered. The slavery
question, which was our only source of disturbance,
has been cat by the sword, like the Gordiau knot,
and now sterns in a fair way to settle itself through
the desperate measures of the rebel leaders. The
whole South, hitherto reserved for negro plantations,
is being thrown open to foreign immigration. This
same immigration constantly recuperates the North,
and is rather increased than diminished by the war.
Domestic manufactures are wonderfuliy encouraged.
Inventions multiply upon us. We have created an
iron clad navy, such as it is. On sea or on land,
with sailors or with soldiers, we are now more than
a match for any other nation upon t lie face of the
These are some of the benefits which we, as a peo
ple, have already derived from this war, and we
iiiijht enumerate many more were our space equal to
the requirements of the subject. But any one who
cm .appreciate the full scope of the benefits we have
recited, will need no farther argument to convince
him that the w ir is really a blessing to tie country.
When it shall end in the complete restoration of the
Union, its blessings will be even more apparent. The
anjer, prejudices, the jealousies which it has created
wid soon pass away; but the telegraphs, the rail
roads, the coa'e-, the harbors, and the various im

Borax to Kill Water Bcgs. At the last meet
ing of the licston Society of Natural History a report
was made by a member upon the effect of pulveriied
borax upon the water bugs and cockroaches that in
fest our bouses. The experiment was tried by sprink
ling it aroun d every crack and crevice suspected of
atbirdiog phelter to these insects, with this e5ect,
that after three or four days quantities of dead ones
were fuand on the fhor, aud hardly a live one found
in the house. Another experiment was tried by
confining two healthy specimens in a bottle, with a
little borax on the bottom of it, with air freely
admitted. At the end of twenty-four hours one was
fouud dead, the other quite feeble; in thirty six
bouts the la3t oue was also dead. Thus proving this
simple and perfect remedy, the value of which most
housekeepers will appreciate. Boston jidctrtistr.
A singularly atrocious murder has been committed
in the outskirts of Loudon. The headless body of a
man was found in the Plaistow Marshes. From the
appearance of the corpse it is conjectured that the
first blow, either with a hatchet or other sharp in
strument, apparently failed to accomplish its intended
effect, leaving only a gash upon the neck ; but the
second blow wis apparently delivered decisively, and
severed the head from the trunk. In the evening, a
German sugar-baker, named Kohl, and his wife,
identified the clothes of the deceased as those of a
form?r lodger of theirs, a German; and, from va
rious circu mstanceo which subsequently came to the
knowledge of the police. Kohl aud his wife were ap
prehended. The murdered man was on his way to
the United States. The case was under judicial in.
