Coffee is a stimulant and tonic t the mus
cular and fleshy parts of the body, and gives
greater power of physical endurance, white
tea gives energy and vlj;or to the nerves
and brain. He would give coffee to the
physical hard worker anil laborer, the sol
dier uu the murcb, the mechanic in the
workshop, and the man of bard muscular
work, and tea to the mm who pleds among

Tub Tiikathk. The performance at the
Opera House Inst evening was largely at.
tended. The popular aad talented young
actor, Mark Rates, took the leading charac
ter in ''Black Eyed Susan." Mr. Rates is
an actor of very superior talent, and Messrs.
Carner So Peterson bare shown excellent
judgment in securing his services. The
great attraction of the evening was "Rip
Van Winkle." The leading character in
this play was Mr. J. W. Curner. whoso act
Ing was superior to anything of the kind
ever before witnessed in this section of the
country. As old "Rip" be was a complete
success. It is niid by theatrical critics that
he tins rarely if ever been equalled in bis
rendition of this character. We have heard
many of our citizens express the desire that
the company would repeat this play during
its stay here. "
To-night will be presented the beautiful
play of '-Don Ctcsnr do Kazan," and the
comic drama of "Solon Shingle.'"
Souk time ago, we published an account
of Mr. Saxhy'g method of dotecllng Haws in
iron bars or rods, by means of uiugnelisa,
and pointed out the great prnctionl advan
tages to be derived from usinjr the test. We
now learn that the same method has been
applied in testing rolled iron plates lor
boilers and other purposes, and that their
molecular condition can be plotted down on
paper, so as to admit a critical investigation.
The importance of this method, it' really a
practicable one. in selecting plates for steam
boilers, it would be difficult to exaggerate.
A daily paper has been started at Pleas

The oil market which closed firm on Sat
urday, at $5 00 was a little oft yesterday,
buyers offering only $4.C01.70.
Last' evening the election for Chief Engi
neer excited very much interest, moro in
fact than we sometimes sou in an election

the position were Messrs. U. W. Hoag, tbe
present efficient Chief of tho Department,
and C. W. Arnold, of Protection No. 2.
We had no idea that tho numerical force
of tho Department was so heavy as it ap
peared at tbe polls, and can now account
for tbe fact of its great efficiency on the oc
casion of a visit of tbe devastating element.
Notwithstanding the excitement tbe best
possible feeling prevailed, establishing the

An obvious Improvement'lins taken place
in the grading of tbo sidewalk in front or
the M. E. Church. The three step nuisance
has been removed and tbe sidewalk rises at
an easy grade from the railroad truck to
Spring street. This work, with permission
from tbo Council, for which wo propose
they should give him a vote of thanks, if
they don't feel able to pay he bill, was
done by our old friend Kellogg the pioneer
painter, and one of tbe most enterprising
business men in the oil region. If every
business man in Oil City had ICellogg's en
terprise, we should soon have a,, town com
peting with Corry orMeadvllle, neither of
which have tbe natural advantages as a
railroad centre which we enjoy.

Congress resumed Its session yesterday at
Mr. Perry offered a resolution requesting
tbe President to transmit a copy of bis late
amnesty proclamation with a statement of
me authority by whlcn lie Issueu it.
Mr. Kerry said he offered tho resolution
because although he favored the amnesty he
doubted tbe right of tbe President to grant
it in (his sweeping way, and he wished to
have tbe question settled.
Mr. Howard was glad the attention of t'ifl
Senate had been called to the question, lie
thought it important that tho people of tbe
United Stales should know whether tbe
President had such a dispensing power rs
was implied in tbe issuo of this proclama
tion. After considerable debate tbe resolution
Mr. Stewart introduced a bill to enable
the people of Georgia to form a State Gov
ernment, republican in form, which was re
ferred to the Committee on Judiciary.
It provides tor repealing Ibo act by
which Georgia was restored to tbe Union
nnd remanding it to a provisional govern
Several bills were introdneed, but no
business of importance transacted.
Till! Tei.kuraph It seems almost in
credible Ibat in 1S43, only twenty-five years
ago, (here should have been such a debate
in Congress as Pref. Morse quoted in his
speech at the banquet on Tuesday evening.
It was proposed to appropriate thirty thou
sand dollars for experiments with Morse's
Electro-Magnetic Telegraph. Mr. Cave
Johnson, afterward Postmaster General
sneeringiy proposed to devote half the a -
propnation to mesmerism. Mr. Houston, of
Alabama, proposed to add "Millensm" to
the list, and Mr. Stanley, of South Carolina.
facetiously proposed to make Cave Johnson
the subject. However, the bill passed by
eighty-nine to eighty-three. Tbe experi
ment was made .and was successful. After
this, Professor Morse offered tbo whole in
vention to tbe Government for one hundred
thousand dollars. The proposition was vir
tually killed by a report of tbo Postmaster
General (Cave Johnson), who observed Ibat
the operation of tbe telegraph between this
city (Washington1) and Baltimore has not
satisfied him that under any rate of pottage
that can be adopted its revenues can be
made lo equal its expenditures. Neverthe
less, Prof. Moree kept the offer open until
March, 1817. The raport or the Postmaster
General was fatal to the project in Congress,
and such language, coming from such a
source, well nigh paralyzed the energy and
faith of those wbo were engagod in erecting
telegraph lines Philadelphia Globe.
