The progress of our country in the Arts

by a knowledge of the aluinis made here
for patents. At no period in our history
has the subject dr invention, awakened
such attention. Silk raanufactnriug ia io

raw silk is ned yearly. This sum can be
increased a thousand fold. The profitable
production of cocoons in this country is no
longer a problem. The silk worm, will
thrive every where aud women and ohil-'
dren can uwiize unoccupied time in tlie

made for a simple form of hand reel for
use in unwinding the cocoons. There is
it fortune to some genius who will patent
such a reel. The value of inventions is
shown by au oiler of $5,000 made by a

inventor to assign the U. ,S. and Cauada
patents to the company.
The Cabinet makers are still at wort,
and a decided boom has been made in fa

knowledge of other countries in the world
would be of untold advantage to our
manufacturing and commercial interests.
No better appointment could be made.
Judge Shollaburger, of Ohio, is not an im-
f robable candidate for Secretary of the

the confidence of the whole country.

A PIONEER SKETCH.
S'U. Tel: In Uie for part of October
1605 family consisting of father, mnth-r,
two sob. and three daughter., drove tl.ei
team up to a flue, nntntnl mound situate
in the theq unbroken wilderness of 'orth
Kingsvilie. Tbey had been over six wseks
working their way, through the woods, from
Massachusetts, with liltlo or no rosd., suf-
fering every imaginable discomfort through
vue jung anu ira ions journey. I hey wr
no doubt glad when they arrived at ihei
new home in the woods. Their situation
with but four other families who came a
year or two previous iu anything but
cheering, for family who had been usod
to all the convenience and comforts of
well .ottled country. The uppermost ob
ject, however, and that which was tbe
most inspiring of all, and which was com

The recent earthquake at At? ram. Aus
tria, was almost as terrible as similar con
vulsions in South America. Tbe damage
to private dwellings in that city alone
amounts, according to the best estimate,
io upwarus oi inur millions ol norms.
Among the minor inconveniences conse
quent npon the disaster, the total suspen
sion of lighting by ga. is severely felt.
But the inhabitants are not simply deprived
of the light by night, but even of fire by
day. The chimneys of most dwelling
houses have fallen down, and thonch the
cold has been very severe the citizens have
not ventured to light their fires as usual.
The damage to the Cathedral is so great
mat um tower, at least, win nave to be
pulled down and rebuilt from its founda
tions; but it ia feared that tbe nave of the
building is also-' intermediately ruined.
This is the more to be regretted, as the
Agrsm Cathedral is one of the oldest and
most intereaing ecclesiastical slrnotores in
the Austrian Empire. It was consecrated
as long ago a 1217. The loss and damage
in works of art and antiqnities in the city
is very great. A most extraordinary natur
al phenomenon was observed at spot
about nine kilometres from Agram. There
are a number of fountains of hot water burst
out from the earth, These geysers, which
resembled the hot springs in Iceland, were.
however, only temporary. It was also no
ticed that all rivers and streams within a
certain radius of Agram suddenly rose

The recent decline in coffee, of which
this country uses more than any other
nation in tbe world and five times as
much as Great Britain, will probably
prove permanent, as it is due not to a cas
ual over supply, but to a change in the
manner of conducting the trade. Kail
roads, recently constructed from Rio Jan
eiro, bring the coffee more speedily from
the plantations, and steamers, which havo
supplanted sailing, vessels, have greatly
shortened the trip'' from Brazil to this
country. The trade" in coffee, In other
words, has gooe through the same secular
chunge aa the traid in tea. The day for
great firms buying by the shin-load and
carry ing great stocks has passed. Orders
by cubit-, shipments by steam and purch
ases by job lots have taken the place of
the slow but princely methods of a few
years back. Tha recent failures in the
