The prevalence of a large quantity of inferior 'and dangerous oils in the market, at a ch an price—many of which are little better than Naptha itself—and the existence of false reports in regard to the Portland Kerosene Oil, renders it a matter of justice to our selves, as well as safety to consnmers,4hat some no tice should be taken of these facts. Therefore, we again present an advertisement, and would call atten tion to the high standard of our Oils. The Refined Petroleum, the fire test of which is 122; The Port land Kerosene, the fire test of which is 125 degrees Fahrenheit, and often reaches considerably higher; also, we would say, that we are determined to main tain their long established reputation. PORTLAND KEROSENE OIL COMPANY. We quote from chap. 39 R. S. 1871, the title of said chapter being “Inspection and sale of Manufactured Articles.*’ Sect. 31. Every person and corporation engaged in manufacturing petroleum, coal oil or burning fluid shall cause every cask or other vessel thereof to be so inspected and marked, by a sworn inspector, And if any person manufactures or sells such oil or burn ing fluid not so inspected and marked in this State, or that has not, been so inspected and marked as un safe for illuminating purposes, he shall pay a fine not exceeding Five Hundred dollars or be imprison ed six months in the county jail, upon indictments therefor.

In a recent ai tide on a fair in his locality, the editor of a Western paper says: A brother editor took a valuable premium, but an un kind policeman made him put it right back where he took it from. A new ominibus and horse-car check has been invented in England, which not only registers those who enter, but where they get out. It is said to be a perfeet telltale. Now if somebody will invent a check upon bank officers we shall all be happy.

I’ve two of those blank checks left yet.” Let the Toast Go Round.—Good Templar: “Very warm, coachman, have a drop?’’ Coachman: “Thank ye, sir, (Drinks) Aueh! O murder! ’Ain poisoned!

The jacket of black velvet is perfectly covered with finely cut Bteel stars, the overskirt has a heavy fringe of steel pendants and a tablier of steel orna ments runs down the front. The hat is a small Turkish turban with a steel aigrette. A demand seems to be springing up for va rious strange shapes in note paper. It is no uncommon thing for any one carrying on a large correspondence to receive a variety of shapes each day, such as would have aston ished our forefathers. Stationers may take a hint from this, and work up old slips and out sides with advantage. A “dead cat” swindle is the latest devel opment of ring trickery. It has just been ex posed in Troy, where the Corporation paid fifty cents for the removal and interment of pauper felines. The surprising number of fuuerals bd to suspicion, and an examina tion disclosed the fact that the city was pay ing several times for the last sail rites of each individual cat, the corpse being resur rected and reburied until it could no longpr be handled. Not satisfied with the profits of this swindle, however, the lascals were found to have used stuffed hides when legiti mate subjects were scarce. Parties in French Assembly. A Paris letter fn the Independence Beige, discussing the chauces of a monarchcial res toration, says: At this moment there are 725 deputies. At the reopening live will be added to them; and, without rashness, the assertion may be made that they will all Ire Republicans. But let us deal with those existing. They form eight groups, half of which belong to the Right and half to the Lett. The former are —1st, The Extreme or purely Legitimist par ty, called Club of the Reservoirs, because its meetings are held at the hotel of that name. It consists of 175 members; it is the most numerous royalist group, and the one in which the least defection is to be looked for. However, in my opinion, and 1 think I know the Assembly w'el), I consider that there may be seven or eight doubtful deputies amongst them; either that they have intimate Bona partist connections, or they are disposed to belong to such fractions as will best satisfy their ambition. Second, the Moderate (or mitigated), which is confined to the Right Centre and Bonapartist traction, the exact number it would he difficult to state, because it has been recently decomposed to form the Prauie meeting, and to attract a part of the Legitimist and of the Right Centre portions; but its special disintegration will result from that of the t vo other groups to be considered. Third, the Right Centre consists of 152 mem bers; but of chose several also belong to the Right, and some also form part of the Left Centre. These latter are principally counted upon to form a majority on either side. Fourth, finally, the gioup of the appeal to the people, which publishes neither the names nor the numbers of its adherents, but which is known it 1 he lobbies to consist of about 38. Well, will they or not be faith ful? The question is a grave one. 1 be lieve only from 15 to 17 can be relied upon. Let. us turn to the Lett. On this side we have three distinct groups, firstly, the Union Republicaine, 88 members, all abso lutely to be depended upon, second, the Republican Left, 188, all equally safe, but many of whom belong to the former (I will make the necessary deductions present ly) ; third, the Lett Centre, itself divided into two factions—the one called simply by the original name, and the other called the meet ing of the Conservative Republicans, or the Casimir-Perier meeling. From this party was especially recruited on the 24th of May the Target group. Beyond these specially characterized factions arc to be tlund a cer tain number of deputies who do not belong to any special section, They are about 122, and amongst them are the 38 Bonapartists of the Appeal meeting and the members of tbe Pradie assembly. This latter, which also gives no information relative to its constitu tion, contains some deputies of the Right who will adhere to any monarchy; in a word, they may equally be Legitimists, Orlcanists, or Bonapartists; anything except Republican. We have, tlierelore, as a possible monarchi cal majority—the meeting of the Reservoirs, 175; Right Penttc, 152: deputies of the Pra die group which may go with either centre, 53; to'al, 380. But wc must substract tbe persons who, at the same time form part of tbe Right Centre and the Right pure. They are 43. Therefore the 380 will be reduced to 337. But we have also to deduct both several members of the Right Centre who appear as if they would neverc onscnl to vote a legiti mate monarchy, and some others who, by tlieir previous votes or their personal connec tions, mayr bo considered at the satue time as doubtful, both for the republic aud the mon archy. They may, in my judgment, be counted at 15 or 10, thus .reducing the total, to 321. That is the extent of the votes which in ease the leaders of the intrigue can be believed, are, according to my view, to he safely counted upon for a monarchical vote. But the majority demands 302. Where are the 41 wanting to be found ? They must Itc sought in the groups Target, Casimir Perier, and the Appeal to the People. Thus, 1 cal culate. that there are about fittv deputies, uncertain, floating or doubtful, as they may be ca.led, who are scattered over the diHerenl parliamentary groups. Amongst them will be found tbe 40 or 45 indispensable tor the famous vote of the half plus one.” [From M. D. Conway’s Letters iu Cine iuuati Coiu meiclal.] The American Abroad. The London hotel-keeper or a tradesman has a voice and manner for Americans, another for the rest of the world, and I fear, he has two sets of prices also. A shopkeeper ot long experience told me that he had, per haps, once or twice in his life, mistaken a southern or a western man for an English provincial, hut regarded liis perception of a New Englander or a New Yorker or a Phila delphian as absolutely infallable. Hut to iny questions concerning their peculiarities lie could give no answer. Even long trav el in Europe does not seem to obliterate them, however. The other day, I was traveling with an Araetican who has been on this side of the Atlantic for eight or tcu years, auu wl om I should not have taken for ,n can by his manner, voice or ‘,n •f- " But when we were bright, slender lady who might weil bl’ye been thought a Bostonian, remark d of some thing that “it must be worth a hundred dol lars.” The American, hearing the word “dollars,” instantly replied “What, are you an American ?” “No,” replied the lady, “but as you were I thought it bc,t to put it in dol lars.” The gentleman was quite astonished, as he had in no way disclosed his nationality, and fancied it unrecognized. It the case of the uewly-arrived American the difficulty of explaining this phenomenon is. of course, not great. The American physique is gener ally different from the Eng.ish, the accent very different—the Americans usually giving an upward inflection at the end of a sentence when the English give a downward one. Tne English voice is more flat, more mo notonous, and usually in a lower tone. But I cannot help thinking that the difference is generally permanent because it is more radi cal, and blends with both the American char acter and with the circumstances amid which he is necessarily placed in a foreign laud. As to these circumstances they must give him a certain feeling of helplessness in the presence of a hotel-keeper or shop-keeper. He will meet their demand without surprise, not kuowing the standard of prices. When an Englishman would at least grumble at the stated price, or perhaps walk out indignantly, the American discloses his ignorance, and thereby his nationality, by continued affabil ity, even if lie does not purchase. But still more, there are in the American certain traits which arc unconscious and habitual. For one thing, his sense of equality appears at every moment, and that, in a region of snobe and an atmosphere of servilities, constitutes a very important distinction. Every English shopkeeper is servile, and meets his customer as he would meet his master. He doesn’t ex pect to is: treated as a gentleman or an equal, and the Americau who speaks to him respect fully excites a momentary surprise. Again, the English people always come directly to the point. No word ever passes between buy er and seller except such as is needed for the dry purposes of commercial barter. But the Americans—the ladies puticularly—will cun veise pleasantly with clerks and shop girls, as if the latter were human beings. How to Sell Patent Gab Burners.— “Sir!” said a tall, thin man, clad in a worn, very shining garb, suddeuiy appearing in the room ‘T have ventured to call to lay before you one of the most astonishing inventions of modern times.” They all begin in some such impressive wav as that. “A gas burner, sir.” I was busy arranging some papers in a corner, and having both bauds full, with a pen held crossways in my mouth. I was for the moment quiie at his mercy. Pe hap*, sir, yon are aware that in the case ot every kind of burner but this I show you, gas give# a most noxious effluvium, having a peculiar ly ruinous effect upon the eyesight.” By this time I ha.l emptied my hands and mouth and was advancing upon him. Fixing bis eyes upou mine, he started back in distress ful horror. “Heaven help us, sir,” he ex claimed, “how you have suffered already! Your sight, sir, would not last six months longer. This must not be.” Before I eoul-1 sav a word or raise a finger to «top him, he rapidly glided past me to the table on which the lamp stood. With a niro bleness which rooted me to the spot in ap prehension, he whipped off the shade, then the old burner; in a moment the lamp wrs a ruin. “It is a merey of Providence, sir, that I happened to call.” “Stop!” I called. “Replace everything as it was, instan'Jy.” “The number of cases of premature blind ness,” he caimly proceeded, “that I have had the gratification of preventing makes ray labor a most pleasant one.” Thinking lie might be deaf, I bawlsd; “I don’t waut your burner; I won’t have it; take it off,” for he was lightly twirling the new one in its place. “There, sir, you will feel thankful to roe aa j long as you live! The only thing that troub les me iu the matter is, I know I am ruining the spectacle makers.” “Do you hear?” I asked. “I shall not pay yon for it.” He struck a very effective attitude. “Pay ment! ot what consequence is that? I could not remove that inestimable burner tor aDy amount of money, when the alternative is the ruin of your valuable eyesight. For, sir, your eyes are worth many burners. 1 make you a present of it willingly. I am a poor man, under heavy travelling expenses, and I have a family in want.” He sighed. “But dutv shall be done. The price is three-pence [ half-penny, or three shillings a dozen. I know you will regret this momentary harsh ness in the long years to come, when you are euioying the fruits of that burner. But that is not ray affair, though I am sorry to think of it. Good morning, sir. If at any time, no matter how long an interval, by some in conceivable accident anything should become out of order in it, you will find the name of the manufacturers stamped 011 the side. Be food enough to drop a line to their well nown house at Glasgow, and a man will in stantly be sent to attend to it.” I was beaten. This offer to send a man from Scotland into the heart of England, after the lapse of years, to put a gratuitously bestowed three-pcnce-half-penny gas tiurner to rights was too much for me. I had to make a purchase.—Chambers' Journal. ai8Clia.ANEOC« NOTICES.
