What Effect a Railroad has
to a Town.
The population of New
Straitsville, Perry county, at
the present termini of the
Straitsville Branch of the Co
lumbus & Hocking Valley
Railroad, is GOO. The first
house was erected on the town
site in September last. A
school house and an Odd Fel
lows' Hall have since been
built, and a Catholic and
Methodist Church will soon be
erected. So much for having
a railio:d. What a changer
there would be in this town

To Whiten Yellow Flannel.
Dr Artus tells u?, that flan
nel, which has become yellow
by use, may be whitened by
putting it for some time in a
solution of hard soap, to which
strong nmraonia has been nd
ded. The proportions he gives
m e one and n half pounds of
liard-curded soup, and two
thirds of a pound of strong
ammonia to fifty pounds of soft
water. The same object may
be obtained in a shorter time
by placing the garments for n
quarter of an hour in a weak
solution of bisulphate of soda,
to which a little hydrochloric
acid has been added.
To Clean Furniture.
Mix linseed oil, one quart;
gin or spirits of wine, half a
pint; vinegar, half a pint; but
ter of antimony, two ounces,
with half a pint of spirits of
turpentine. This mixture re
quires to be well shaken, before
it is wed. A little of it is then
to be poured upon a rubber,
which must be well applied tu
rtle surface of the furniture.
Several applications will be
necessary for new furniture, or
for such as has previously been

Republican Opinion on the
Legal Tender Reversal.
[From the Nation.]
The present action of the
court ia to be deplored, (1) be
cause this sudden reversal ot a
former judgment, which hat!
been maturely considered after
full argument, will weaken
popular respect for all decis
ions of the court, including thi
last one : (2) because the valuer
of a judgment does not depend
on the number of judges who
concur in it, judges being
weighed, not counted, and be
cause the rehearing of a cause
in consequence of the number
of judges baring been increas
ed, ia peculiarly, and for obvi
ous reasons, ooicctionabie.
where the number is depend
ent on the will of the rery body
whose acts the court baa to ro
view, ana wnicu in mis very
case it is reviewing and
because the judges who have
been added to the bench since
the former decision are men
who were at the bar when that
decision was rendered, and
were interested professionally
and personally in having a dif
ferent decision, we. do not
mean to insinuate that this baa
effected their judgment, but
we do say that it is not enougu
for a judge to be pure ; ne musi

that is, he must only be honest,
