How TO GET RID OF CANADA THISTLE. —Mr.Jacob Bubb, this place, has been experimenting to some extent in order to ascertain the best way of getting rid of Canada thistles that grow on his farm. He has tried salt, coalol, and a number of other reme dies, but with no success. Sometime ago he took it into his head to try apple pomace from the cider press, knowing by experience that it would kill grass and other weeds. The ap plication was duly in ide and the result was entirelysatisfactory. By cutting off the stalk of this objectionable Weed, and placing a common shovelfull of po mace over the roots they are sure to die and the following season you will find no trace of the weed. Mr. Bubb has repeatedly tried this remedy and every effort has oeeu attended with en tire success. It is upon his authority that we give it to the public, that it may beuefit many who are bothered with the Canada thistle. Try it.— Jersey Shore Herald.

It was the largest bank in New Jersey and one of the most ln flunetial. Its capital was $500,000 and its surplus $466, 000. The exact amount of its deposits we have not yet learned, but that they were large. The bank had an excellent credit, atip some of its managers are indentified with the management of other im portant corporations, like the Mutual Benefit Life Insurance company of New York,and the principal saveigs banks there. All the rumors current ' agree on the point that there has been a heavy defalcation, and this is charged to the cashier, O. L. Baldwin, who was the acting executive officer of the bank. It is said that yesterday he called the directors together and confessed to them all that was left of the resources of the bank was its buildiug, which is worth about SSO, 000. The news came like a thunder clap on the community. There was not a suspicion that the in stitution was not the strongest in New ark. The directors have been con sidered the most trustworthy body of men in the city, the reputation of Baldwin ns a financier probabiy stood first in the state. The bank is closed to all comers, ar.d no official facts have been made known beyond the arrest of Baldwin on a charge of embezzlement and the sending for goterment exam iners. Coyle, the alleged murderer of Emily Myers, was found guilty of murder in the first degree at York. Yesterday a motion was made and reasons filed for a new trial.
