HOW TO MAKE A FlEE IS A COM
MON Gbate. A correspondent of the
London I! uilder thus describes a now
method of burning bituminous coal in
a common grate : .
Clean out your grato and cover tho
bottom with a Bheet of paper folded
to fit; then place tho coal in tho grate
to the level of the top bar. Tho fire is
then to be lighted on the top, and al
lowed to burn downwards.
It is Btatod that this plan of burn
ing bituminous coal Bavea a great
deal of -fuel, and makes a cheorful,
brilliant fire. - The theory of this sa
ving consists in the gases arising from
tho fresh coal bolow having- to pass
through the fire,- where they are con
sumed, and thus give-out heat in com
bustion, at tho Eame time preventing

Wo desire, in tho lanoiin. nf n rn.
temporary, to show tho Farmer and
iuecuanicuow tne exemption or the
stock of the Banker and Bondholder
from taxation, under this now law,
will affect them. Wo will give a sim
ple but fair illustration : j .
bnpposo that VV arner Peters, Hi

Esqrs., had all their money invested

better than Messrs. Peter3, Gaveu,

threo Farmers would havo to pay
doublo this yoar what they did before
tho dealers in Bank and Stato stocks
wero exempted, i. e. $100 each?
it is in this way that the exemption
of Bank and Stato stocks, from taxa

proportion as tho tax is lessened from

A bill introduced in tho House and
passed through that body, was passed
m tho Senato yesterday to regulate
the admission of persons to practice
a3 attornies in certain cases. Al
though perhaps not of very great con
sequence in its self, it affords another
notable instance of the lovo of this
Assembly for olnas leglsation. By
this law, tho man who is in affluent
circumstances enough to attend
course of lectures at a law school, and
there obtain a certificate of his fitness,
is to be admitted to tho bar, provided
ho has 6tudied ono year. The man
who has not the pecuniary means to
attend such a school, is left to study
two years betoro hecan be exammod

Tho practical working of this measure
will be to admit tho rich man's Bon
to practice ono year before the poor
manes; while tho latter may bo better
qualified than tho former, the day he
receives tho certificate of the law
school. This is one law for the rich
and another for tho poor. Where is
