D.Medical Examiner Policies Issued as Good as any United States Bonds. Policies Valuable in Life as well as at Death! The Brooklyn Lite is the only Company in the country which guarant.es a definite sur render-value to every policy on which two or more annual premiums have been paid; this amount, in dollars and cents, is indorsed on every policy issued. Should any policy-holder become unable to pay bis premiums, he can thus know the cash worth of the policy at any time after two annual premiums have been paid. This certainly is the greatest Inducement and most tangible advantage ever accorded to parties insuring their lives. Dividends annually (after second year) in cash. Dividends are divided on the Contribution Plan the only equitable manner of dividing the earnings of a idle 1 usurmce Company. The Contriontion Plan was first conceived by Mr. D.P. Fackler, now Actuary 01 this Company, and has been adopted by most of the best managed Life Companies in this country. The Brooklyn Life lias paid and now pays to its Policy b alders larger Dividends than ever before paid by a Li e Insurance Compa ny! The BROOKLYN LIFE, unlike some of the so called Mutuals, pays no percentages or largesses to either Directors or officers; neith er can it afford to spend thousands upon thousands of dollars, belonging properly to the Policy-holders, in misrepresenting and advertising false statements concerning other corporations, as is now being done by certain so-called Mutuals. The management of ,he BROOKLYN LIFE is open,candid, econom ical, a”J prudent; no one man power, as in the so cailed Mutuals, but c osely scrutinized by carelui, experienced, and reputable busi ness gentlemen, who have received but an equitable interest ou tbcir capital invested. By its care, skill, prudence, and economy the BROOKLYN LIFE, as a Mixed Company has fully exemplified the words of the Hon. William Barnes, Insurance Superintendent of the State of New York, who sustains it in his Report lor 1868 in the following language, to wit: “It does not always follow, as is sometimes supposed, that a purely Mutual Company Is tne most prof itable one to the insuied; Mixed • oinpanies. or those substantially Mutual, may by superior skill and oilier advantages, actually make the larg« st dividends ot surplus prof!is to policy-holders.”—Page XC., New Pork Insurance Report lor 1868. In the BKOOKi YN LIFE no Policy-holder cun ever he assessed for any loss or deficiency—in Mu tuals the Policy-holders alone are responsible. The success which the “BROOKLYN" has achiev ed, tully exemplified in its rapid and healthful growth, is a convincing proot ol the confidence re posed by the public in its soundness, integrity, and liberality.

Wednesday Morning, January 6, 1869. fcarih CU»eta. A good deal of attention lias lately been drawn to a new invention devised by the Rev Mr. Monte, an Englishman, and now intro duced to the imerican public in a small pam phlet prepared by Col. George E. Waring, of New York, and entitled Earth Closets; llovo to make them ami how to use them. The subject is not perhaps an attractive one, hut its importance is such that it ought to be ful ly discussed in the public prints. Dr. Monat, inspector ol jails in India sajs that it is im possible to overestimate the benefit which is to result Irom Mr. Monte's inventicn, and be goes ou to declare ‘‘it is, without exception* the greatest public benefit conferred by a pri vate individual, in a matter so essential to happiness, that 1 am acquainted with.” The last Independent has an at tide in re latiou to this matter from which we quote: We have no desire to live to a peat obi age. But we should like to live long enough to see no such thing a3 n water closet existing in the Uniled states. They answered lor a state ol half-civilization; but they are not,des tined to live long. The earth-closet is to take their place. Ol that we are already convince 1 by inspection. The earth-closet is based on the discovery that thoroughly dried earth is the most com plete ot disinfectants. The instant it covers any substance all offensive exhalation ceases. Water, on the other hand,is not a disinfec tant at all; and simply carries away what is offensive more or less impelleet'y, a,.d at the risk ot constant obstructions, freezings, burst ings. and mishaps. The earthcloset consists of a simple appara tus, which discharges a certain quantity ot earth instead ot a stream ol water. There is a seat, a tight receptacle under it, a reser voir for stoiing dry earth, and a contrivance to measure out and throw- in the requisite quantity. This is all, and it is enough. We have in spected the important article, and are satis fied that it is what it claims to be. Indeed, we have never known any person to examine it without being satisfied. It is more cheap ly and easily constructed than a water-closet, works more surely, is altogether less liable t6 get out ol order, and is tar less liable to create those offensive odors from which no water closet is wholly free and which make many insuppor' able. in the form of a commode it is also availa ble lor the sick room, which the water ap paratus is not. It thus removes a chief source of discomfort and diseise. Colonel Waring describes an instance where such a commote was kept in a small room, between two rooms occupied by lever patients, and was the greatest comfort. ‘ There has been absolutely no annoyance, and the attending physician was enthusiastic in its praise ” We happen to have been acquainted with the lacts, and know this statement to be cor rect. There is another va3t advantage in the new system. When thoroughly adopted, it wilt reform the sewage ol every town. On Baron Rothschild's estate in Buckingham shire, with a population of 800 persons it ha3 been in exclusive use lor eighteen months. “The overflowing and lever-breeding cess pools, ditches, aud privies have been cleared; and not a toul smell can anywhere now lie tound. A man and a hoy, with a horse and a cart, were sufficient to attend to this popu lation of eight hundred.” this is a statement of a correspondent of the London Standard, Oct. 1857. This method is especially applicable to large public institutions, jails, school-houses, hotels, etc. Captain Arnitaga, of the Wakefield (English) prison, has a hundred, ol them in use, aud testifies strongly to their value. English schoolmasters, who have tried them tor a year, testify that nothing would iuduce them to return to the trouble, expense, and uncleanness of the water-closet system. Low levers, such as often curse large inst'tutious, are tound to be removed at ouce wbeD this change is made We have just beard Irom one of the proprietors of the Dew St. James Hotel, now in process of erec tion at Jacksonville, Florida, that the earth closets ate to be introduced there as a sani tary measure. Finally the new system has an immense advantage, on which Col. v\ aring dwells with the zeal of a scientific fanner. By this means a noxious substance is converted into one of the attributes of life—lor the earth from the closet, though entirely inodorous, is as strong a tertilizer as guano. We thus avoid the present most lavish waste of the most vital elements of the soil. Liebig as setts that the greatness ot the Roman Em pire was sapped by the Cloaca Maxima, through which the entire sewerage ol Rome was washed into the Tiber. It impoverished the agriculture of the nation; while the Chinese, by the opposite method, have kept their soil fertile. Will the Ogdcnsburgh (toad Pay f We find in a pamphlet addressed to the citi aens of FrankliD County, Vermont, a reply to this question, which must stop the mouths ot those whose injudicious criticisms have only made the friends of the route more active aud successful. After the discussion of some local questions the pamphlet says: The only question now remaining for con sideration is, will the road he a paying road? It bus been shown that the local busii ess that will be lurnished the road in this county, will more than pay the interest upon the cost of constructing the road through this county, and what is true of this county, is undoubtedly true of every county between Swanton aud Poitlaud. nussing as the Portland & Ogdens burgb road, of which the Lamoille Valley road is a part, does through a fertile agricultural count;y, with no other meaus of transporting its productions to market, and abounding with vast forests in close proximity to the road, af fording an abundant supply ol lumber. The. country through which the road will pass, is unequaled in me richness and variety of its mineral resources. Tlieiiouore beds in Elmore, unrivalled in richness by aD.v in North America; the Slate quarries in Woodbury and Enosburg, nn boui ded in supplv and unsurpassed in excel lence; the flue Stone quarries in Waterville anu Johnson, now valuable foretoves; the rich mines of Copper ore in Wolcott, and the bed of Moulding Sand in Highgate, of superior qua ity; aud the beds ol Ocbre aud Terre de Sene in Hyde Park; the Mineral Springs along the route of the road; its nearness to the beautilul and enblime scenery of Stowe and the White Mountains, will give the road an amount of business almost beyond conception. The freights of the business of a siugle firm in Sr. Jobnsburv, it is believed, will amount to S100.000 annually. It would seem that the local freights between Swau'ou and Portland, consisting of the pro ductions of the couutry through which the road passes, and merchandise from the sea board for the consumption of the inhabitants accommodated by the load, will he of such an amount as to reLdor it certain that the road will ho a paying road. The road will he a part, and a very important pait, of a great thoroughfare across the conti nent, Irom Portland to Puget Suuod on the Pacific, having advantages that uo other route possesses. Portland has oue ot the best, most commodious haroors on the Atlantic coast, with facilities for shipment and transhipment of merchandise that no other city upon the sea-board has. Portland has the advantage over Boston of a regular line of steamships to Europe, is nearly oue day’s sail nearer Liver pool than Bosion, and nearly two days nearer than New York. The distance from Ogdens burgh to Portland is seveu'y miles less than to Boston. Puget Sound, the western terminus of the Northern Pacific Kailroad, is 700 miles nearer the ports of Eastern Asia thau is San Francisco, the western terminus of the Cen tral Pacific. And the distance ft om Portland acioss the continent, by wav of the Portland & Ogdensburgb Kailroad, the Lakes and the Northern Pacific Kailroad, is 500 miles less than by way of the Uuion Pacific and the Cen tral Pacific roads to San Francisco. The Northern Pacific road passes over the Rocky Mountains at an elevation ol 3000 leet less thau does the Uuion Pacific road, aud overthe Cascade range at an elevation of 4000 feet less than does ihe Central Pacific over the Sierra Nevadas. Thus freeing the Northern Poetic road from the daugeruud expense of the foriy miles of sheds, which the Union Pacific and the Central Pacific roads are under the neces sitv of erecting to protect the roads from the deep snows to which those roads are sunjectin passing the Rocky Mountains and the Sierra Nevada*. . . Only 800 miles of new read have to be built in order to connect Lake Su|>erior with Puget Sound; forming, wheu the Portland & Og densburgh road is completed, a thoroughfare across the continent, by means if these roads, and the great American chain ol lakes. By the Northern Pacific road the distance to East ern Asia is 1200 miles less than by the Union and Central roads, insuring tor all time the transit over this route ol the productions of the hundred millious ol inhabitants ot East ern Asia and the great Northwest destined lor Europe and Northern New England. So, too, the vast amount of merchandise irom Europe and New England, uecessarv tor the cou-ump tion of the inhabitants of those almost bound less reg'ous of country, will mostly pass over this great northern thoroughfare. The amount of business from the West has doubled within the last teu years, and undoubtedly will dur ing every decade ot future years, until the boundless regions of the West arc inhabited by civilized men. Some idea ot the amouut of husine-s that these roads will do may bo formed from the fact that the business of the Lakes now require a fleet ol sixty steamers. How enormous will the business of these two roads he when the West becomes thickly inhabited, and the commerce of Asia with Eu rope and the United States, is changed from iis circuitous course around toe Cape of Good Hope, by tbe building of a railroad across the coniiueut to tbe Pacific coast. That the Lamortle Valley road will he eco nomically builr and prnd.ntly inuuuged, the public have the strongest guaranty in the character and financial ability oi the nun en p.iced in the enterprise. The Passumpsic road, extending from White Itiver Junction, north, between the Connecti cut River and the Green Mountains, with no through connections, is a paying road. Can there, then, he any doubt in the mind» of any one hut that stork in the Lamoille Valley road will he a profitable investment? *••»•» • But when the road is completed, and the cars are running, aud it is demonstrated by ac tual results, that the road is a paying road, capitalists will seek to iuve t their money in its stocks. And additional stock can then ha readily sold at par sufficient to raise any amount of money that mav be requ'red. The stuck oi the Lebanon Spiiugs road is now sell ing at nar, and is eagerly sought after. The towns iu the south part of the State ailed that road largely by issuing their bonds lor stock. T ose towns cau now exchange their stock in the road tor their bonds, thus obtain ing the benefits ot the road without the cost of a single dollar. The advantages of that road for business are not equal to the advantages of the Lamoille Valley road over which will pass most o. the business of Maine, northern New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, aud the three million square miles of territory in the great North west. together with the productions oi East ern Asia. A DisTivonsiiED Sb.vatob.—Senator Pat terson, son in law ol the President gets a good many‘•notices” in the papers, but has never had a more amusing one than that from the pen of George Alfred Townsend, who saw him at the childrens' party at the White House, Christmas eve. He says: The happy appetite of Senator Patterson, which took him into a side room frequently aud penodieallv, and sent him in again chang ed in not a grain—a little merrier, may be— made his countenance quite Ren>brauti*h be side the colorless complexion of his good wife. There is no painter like Rembrandt aud Cog nac. Their chef d'ctuvrea are both portraiis. I recall many a gray-haired old portrait by Rembrandt with rosy cognac veins showing fibronslv through the skin, as if the subject had been a sedate feeder upon the best of the for est and viulage. And I regret that Rembrandt had not met with Senator Patterson, to show the beantil'nl arterial developments ol Cognac, the greatest of the Mast, rs, upon the Western physiognomy. There he stood childlike in his heartiness, enjoying it all—head a little swim ming, perhaps, as it undecided and careless as 10 whether it were “ sunup” or dark. Nobody laughed so entirely from the pit of his stomach to his eye-brows.

Hundreds of them in passing over the charred districts had their feet so burned the drivers were obliged to shoot them. The bears and wolves feasted on mutton. Deer and elk collected along the monmain streams in surprising numbers, and were at the mercy of panthers, wolves and hunters. The raint have now extinguished the fire. - The stag hunts at Compiegne having proved a lai lure—the ridiculous stags would not let themselves be caught—the Empress devised an ingenious means of passlug the time. She inaugurated what is styled “the Paper Hunt." Her Majesty starts off, en horseback through the forest, dropping hure and there pieces of white paper. At times she crosses the oreeks and lakes in the val leys, or rides through long ravines a consider able distance, without letting tall any bits of paper. At last the horns sound, and those ladies and gentlemen, who are to be ot the bunt, undertake to trace out Her Majesty, by following the paper. Hours elapse sometimes ere some successful hunter reaches the Impe rial game, and, of course, during the forest rides much amusement and no end of dota tions take place. —A new process of refining iron without ‘‘puddling” has been creating a sensation among iron manufactures in Pittsburg. Thu process consists simply in eomhining, mechan ically, oxides of iron with melted crude metal.
