Curious Case for Philadelphia Lawyers—Amusing
Scenes in the Pennsylvania Supreme
A caaa which afforded good deal of fun, and
whloh InTrJlyed a knotty point of law under Ita
oomioal exterior, came op recently In the 8u
preaa Court of Pennsylranla, at Philadelphia.
The hlBtory of the eaee and the acenea In the
Court are thus related by the Bulletin: '' ''
It Bcema that away op in Luzerne county
Hrcd a man named Ellaha Harria. He owned
a large farm, and waa tnppoacd to hare Bared
oonelderaoie money, tie waa an eccontrle and
close-fisted individual, and he lived entirely
eoluded and alone. In July, 1858, he died.
Hie administrators could Una no property but
the ordinary household furniture, tie. Accord
Ioe to custom, tbey had a vendue-, which waa
well attended, it being inferred that the money,
wdioq it waa auppuseu tuw uoceaseo aieu pos
leeied of, bad been concealed somewhere, and
old oheeta and bureaus probably never before
sold so well at an up country sale. N .
Well, one David M. Uutbmacher, an honest
Dutchman, went to the sale, apd a nondescrint
article of furniture was struck off to him for
fifteen cents. It was a iqnare block of pine
wood, about three, feet loui and ten or twelve
inchea square, supported bx.. lour legs, each
about a foot and a half in length. On the top
waa a horizontal wheel, with an iron spindle at
tached to it. It was an outlandish affair, and
it might, for all we know, have come out of the
ark, and ' been applied to antediluvian uses.
David paid his fifieen.cents, hauled his purchase
home, and threw it on the wood pile. In course
of time it came to be split open for fire wood,
wnen, 10: it was louoa to coutain a,7&4 50 in
sold and silver coin and promissory notes Da
rid, tbongh poor, was houcet, and he informed
the administrators of his discovery. The result
was, a suit was entered to determine to whom
the treasure should be Ion i. The lower Court
decided against honest David, and ha BDoealed
Such was the oase that came up yesterday, and
It occasioned much merriment.
The oase was argned by Hendrick B. Wright,
Esq., for David, and E. L. Dana, Esq . for the
estate of Harris.
Mr. Wright contended that David waa entity
of no fraud or misrepresentation, and that he
waa entitled to have all that he bought log,
spindle and money. He cited divers old esses,
sucn aa mat oi tne oeasteaa ot Kichard ill.,
whloh, many years after the battle of Bosworth
Field, was sold, and the buyer found the frame
and poets filled with gold coins: and the oas
ol a tropical bird, sold recently In Mew Orleans,
the owner fiDding in its otaw some valuable
diamonds. Were these jewels sold with the
Chief Justice Lowrie suggested he had for
gotten one case that of the man who boueht
"a pig in a poke." Mr. W. replied that waa an
Irian case, and might not be considered as aa
thority in our Courts.'
Mr. Dana contended that log and sciudle were
all that uavia nought, or tnat the adminis
trators intended to sell, and that David could
not have any more, except on the paradox that
the administrators sold that which they did not
assent to the sale of, and bad not offered for
sale, and that David purchased that which
he did not bid lor nor pay rot .bote of oth
er "wise aaws and modern instances" were
oited by Mr. Dana, from Plutarch down to
Story. He gave the following from the'
life of Solon: 1 Flut. Live, p. 205 -"When
some Coana once were drawing net. some
strangers of Miletus nongnt the drangbt nnseen
and at a venture. There chanced to oome ud
a golden tripod, which Helen at her return
from Troy, on the remembrance of an old pro
phesy, had thrown in there. ' The strangers
contesting with the fishers about the tripod, and
the cities espousing tne quarrel so far aa to en
case in war, Apollo, to end the controversy.
advised that the, tripod be presented to the
wisest man. After passing around in fruitless
seafeb from one to another, it eventually came
back to the temple of Apollo, and the Court, by
reason of inability to decide tbe case, became
the owner of the tubjtct matter of the eontroveriy."
Mr. wngnt said ne aid not wish to intrude
any advice upon tbe Court, but if they found
David's case knotty one, they could make
short work of it by following the examde of the
It is needless to say that there waa mure
laughter In the Conn Room than is usual in
arguments before this angust tribunal. The
Judges will decide, at their leisure, the ques
tion Involved In the case.
Changes in the World's Highway.
Dr. Solger delivered a lecture recently before
the American Geographical and Statistical Soci
ety, In New York city, upon the subject of the
"World's Highway," or commercial communi
cation with the Pacific and the Indies by way
of the Mediterraneans whether by a realization
of Mr. Stephenson's project of connecting Lon
don with tbe River Indus, by a continuous chain
of railways, through Belgium. Hungary, Austria,
ate, to Belgrade, irom tnence to Constantino
ple, then to the held of the Persian Gulf, and
along ita northern shore to the mouth of the In
dus, cf by a completion of the proposed Sues
Canal by the French Sovernment. He illus
trated the relation of commerce to olvilizatioo.
explaining the causes whloh ebanged the com
mercial centre severally from western Asia, It
aly and the mediterranean, rortngal, and the
Baltlo and the German Ocean. The discovery
of America, and of the communication with
India around the Cape of Good Hope,' were the
great influences which brought about the
changes. We are now approaohing, said be, the
fourth great change the beglnniug or the Pa
clflo civilization Tbe Valley of the Mississippi,
being between the two great commercial lluke,
that of the Atlantlo and Pacific, la destined
to become the great commercial centre of the
world. He expressed the belief that the seats
of the anoient civilization of Asia and West
ern Europe wonld be reclaimed, and the com
merce or Jan, ueyrout, Smyrna, as well aa
that of the north coast of Altloa, where old
Carthage flourished, wonld be revived and In
creased a hundred fold. The commerce of the
Mediterranean had declined by the diversion of
trade with India from thence aronnd the Cane
a canal across Sues or communication by lall
wonld revive it. The traffic of New York with
China and the Pacific would all take that direc
tion, as the route would be much nearer: , ". "'

Chicago Shaking Hands with Liverpool—Extraordinary
Proposition of the Chicago Grain
Last September, a Canadian purchased in
vuicago sixteen mousano oosneia of wheat tor
shipment to Liverpool, part by the St. Lawrenoe
route and part by New York. The wheat waa
shipped to Port Dalhouale on Lake OntariOrf
where tbe oargo was divided, ten thousand
bushels going down tbe St. Lawrenoe, and six
thousand to Oswego and through the canals to
the Hudson and this city. The .time occupied
in transportation to Liverpool by the t. Law
rence route was twenty-six days, at cost, cor.
ering all charges of freight, Insurance, commis
sion, &c of sixty-seven cents per bushel; while
mat sent by tne new York route coat eleven
cent, more per bushel In charges alone, besidee
arriving at Liverpool fifty.fonr days alter that
sent by me at. Lawrence, it should be stated
that the lot from Montreal was shipped by a
steamer and crossed tbe Atlantlo in ten days,
while tbe six thousand bushels irom this city
waited four days here for a Balling- veasel, and
when finally shipped, were fifty-live days In trar
sit, whloh will readily account for the difference
in time between tbe two routes. .
The Chicago papers are aeitatins a oroleot for
tbe establishment of a rcsolar line of propel
lers between Chicago and Port Colborne, to
cooneot with a similar line from Port Dalhousie
to Quebec. At tbe latter point it is proposed to
transfer the cargo, by the use of elevators, to
ocean steamers, and to forward grain direct to
Liverpool, at a through cost for freight, insur
ance and commissions, of only thirty seven cents
per bushel. Before this can occur, however, tbe
"dally line of propellers of one thouiand tons eacb,
and a speed of twelve miles per hour," must be
launched, the elevators at Quebec erected, and
the money ror both purpoaea be raised; all of
which may be said to go "against the grain"
just now, as matters stand at Chicago. '
isy tne proposed route, tbe wheat must be tran
shipped at three places Port Colborne, where
it goes by tbe Wetland Railroad to Port Dal
housie, where it is shipped to Montreal or Que
bec, and thence to its destination, Liverpool.
By the New York route, It ia shipped from Port
uaioousie to uswego, too by canal to new X ork.
Tbe distance from Chicago to Liverpool by tbe
Lakes and the St. Lawrence la 4,025 miles.
Some four years ago. there was auite an ex
citement at Chicago on the snbjeot of direct
shipment of grain from that port to Liverpool.
a scnooner, me tuenmond, started with a cr
go of wheat, passed through the Likes, the St'
Lawrence, and across the Atlantic, making the
entire passage,' we believe, in lest than iorty
days. On her arrival tbe oargo and vessel were
sold at a handsome profit to tbe owners. Sub
sequently another vessel from Milwaukee made
the same voyage with equally successful result.
Wheat at that time was held at "war prices"
In the neighborhood of two dollars a bushel
and might have been sent bv almost anv mode
of transit, short of ballooning, and tbe shipper
could well afford to pay the freight. Tbe en
terprise of direct csmmunication between Chi
cago and Liverpool came to a sudden end; first,
oy tneiau in wheat; next by tbe lall In freights;
and especially tbe difficulty In findine return
freights to Chicago at anything like remunera
tive prices. " - - -
There is one thing which wonld probably re
sult in the establishment of the DroDosed line
of steamers between Chicago and Quebec, and
tuae is anoiner war on tne continent lor a
European war Is almost always attended by a
short crop of wheat on the shores of the Baltic.
With even this Impulse, it wonld be some time
before the line wonld be a "daily" line, and,
considering the matter of return frieghts, a
wtille longer belore it would be a paying line.
The latter consideration la supposed to have
some Influence In so important a matter aa that
of establishing a dally line of steamers, partic
ularly wnen one terminus oi ise nronoscd route
is oaiiea vnicago. -

In September. 180S. A Bennileai vnnnw ma.
chanio, lately arrived from England, encounter,
ed a pleasant faced gentleman, In his wander
ing abont New York, standing- in the door-war
of his house. He was made welcome to stoo
there till he could get employment and a home.
Twenty-five years after, that aame mechanic
was employed by Major Noah then surveyor ol
the port, to pot together a machine, then in the
Custom House, and take models of It. This was
doner improvements were made, and he died In
1833. The son succeeded bis lather In the bos

day; the maohlne is Hoe's 10 cylinder press;
tbe penniless English lad waa Robert Hoe; the
good Samaritan was Grant Thorburn. ". -
That famous kinsmen tn sons: and nartnera
in business have their own fun sometimes is ev

The Effict of Tea on tub Hon an Srstia!
Tbe effect of the ntt of tea has been muoh dis
cussed. Professor Johnstone, a rood authority.
has asserted that it prevents the waste of tha
body, and nourishes it. Dr. Smith, recently. In
a leoture before the Society of Arts, maintain
ed that lea was good only in helping our diges
tion of fat or farinaceous food, and thus far was
nourisning; bat ir the tissues are wasted by ei'
ertions or too profuse penetration, tea Is Inlurl
ooa. It does not suit a spare habit, or much
exertion, or low temperatures, or a aeiectirs
skin. These opinions are not generally held.
