Under the tboro head tho Philadel
phia Ileal $tato Journal says:
A curions and interesting cam has
been decided la tho Superior Court, in
Yoking now and somewhat peculiar
points of law, of interest to all who ad
vertiao. Tho facts aro briefly as follows,
omitting tho naves of tho litigants : In
December, 1870, A, doing business ns a
wholesale grocer, discharged B, who had
been employed as head of the tea de
partment of his storo. B sued A in tho
Superior Court for 230, one avonth's
alary. In circulars sent out by A, was
the statement that they had the best tea
buyer, whose solo duty it Was to watch
tho market for bargains. A's defense
was that B spent too much timo in tho
tea market. Chief Justice Curtis charged
the jury on tho trial as a. matter of law
that "when n man presents to tho public,
in tho form of circular or advertise
ment statement, 'hu tn bound bythotxj
statements. It w not for him to say
that it is a matter of business, or when
business is dull as a matter of course, to
issuo statements that aro untrue. If,
after advertising hi wares, goods or
medicines with statements fur the public
to act upon, ho conic into n court of
justice, ho is bound by tlioso statement.
Tho law knows no diffcrenco between
pretenses that aro falsi except in tho de-
See of moral or criminal turpitude, and
tho punishment that attache to them.
The man who seek by f'abo statements
in regard to liU busiuesi through an ad
vertisement to ileludu tho public, when
he docs it to reap profit for bis own ad
vantage, is taking tho lint ttcp on that
road which terminates with falso pre
tciucs, with forgerv, with crimo and
with those nets wliicli imperil tho inter
ests of all of us, and which tend to de
stroy tho proper!, and perhaps tho rep
utation, of every citizen.
Tho jury gave a verdict against A for
92t3. It must lie admitted that there
is much sound prueiic.il common senso
in Judge Curtis' deeiiiuiu This is a
very diltercnt pi nut trom that covered in
tho decision in tho ca.w of Hull v. Hull,
Kimhark & Co., which our readers may
remember. In the. caso Ut named the
plaintiff tonic advantage of tho defend
ant's circular, otll'iing certain g'uods at a
very low price, to order tv largo lino on
speculation. Tho ordir was not filled,
but tho court held that the iL'ieiulantrf
were hound by tin offer inuda in their
circular, and tho plaintilf recovered largo
damage.!. J'ctli c:cs aw of importance,
however, nH showing th i practice of our
courts in lix.ng thu measure of legal re
sponsibility which they must nxsmuc
who make pofiitiw statements in udver
tiscment.i. Mn. Adam Baueau, United States
Consul General at London, iu a dispatch to
tho Stato Department at Washington,
refers to tho annual report cf tC3 Consul
at Manchester, mid invites particular at
tention to tho influx of workmen from
tho United States to various points in
Great Britain, whether as carpenters to
Manchester, masons to Louden and
Glasgow, or miners to Derbyshire, in
consequence of a notion spreading among
American mechanics that tho labor mar
ket on tho other sido of tho Atlantic is
better tlian in tho Unitod States. Ho
says that, utilc&i tho mechanic has pre
viously obtained a contract Insuring liim
employment, ho-now irencrally find him
self without cither money or work ; his
condition rapidly becomes wor.se, and he
u obliged to part with his clothintr. in
ord.T to obtain food and lodging, until
finally bo appear at tho nearest United
States Consulate, half BWrrcd, and with
hardly buflicient raiment to cover his
nakudticM, begging to bo sent back to the
United States. Tho Consul General urges
tho importance cf bringing beforo Ameri
can mochanii's tho improvidence of their
course in Evoking wor!: from Rtrangcrs und
at a distanco from home, without having
iwsitivo aasuranto that tlioy will bo cue
eesKful, nud especially to warn such per
sous that the Connular officers of the
United States aro not authorized to grant
them any relief whatever.

r to Purify Air. &
At a mount eating of the Now York
Aoademy of useful Arts, attention was
called to a simple method of flltsriog e
air of an apartment. The object -fa to
free tho air from dust, cacossive damp
ness, and possibly from tho germs of
malaria. Tho contrivance oonskts es
sentially of a . fibrous woven fabric,
strengthened by brass wlro. , It is to
bo applied to windows and ventilators,
and may bo of service on railway cars to
eulade dust. It hat tho merit of
chocking drafts while admitting air. Its
general use might tend to prevent tho
spread of malarial diseases, and modify
the dangers that dirty streets occasion
to tho health of city residents.
Toko say ten gallons, new eider, and
suffer it to ferment fully, which will
probably bo in about two weeks if the
weather bo warm ; then add about eight
gallons of new cider for producing a sec
ond fermentation, and in about two
weeks add a like quantity to produce a
third fermentation. Stop tho bungholo
of the barrel with an empty bottle with
tho ucck downward and expose to tho
sun. When the vinegar is come, set in
a cool place. When making let there bo
a moderate degree of heat and free access
of external air. Tho process is hastened
by adding td tho cider a quantity of
mother of vinegar, as it is called, a whit
ish, ropy coagulum, of mucilaginous ap
pearance, which is formed in vinegar
and acts as a ferment. Tho strength of
vinegar depends upon tho amount of
sugar or starchy matter to bo ultimately
converted into acetic acid. Cider made,
from late apples is esteemed tho best for
vinegar. Scientific American,

sumed in Great Britain is 000,000 tons,
being about 00 pounds for every one of
tho population. Haw Migar, when im

A case was lately beforo the Circuit Court,
Glasgow, which showed that arsenic was
mixed with sugar. A captain was charged
with causing tho death of several seamen
by serving out putrid pork to them, but
on tho sugar being analyzed by Dr.
Maclagan of Edinburgh, it was found tu
contain sufficient arsenic to cause death.
