Navigation, on account of tho open Fall, was kept open to December. Hud thoro beon a sufficiency of boats to mcot the de mand for transportation by water It is probable that the shipments would have exceeded 50,000,000. During the season of 1878 the total amount ship ped was only 17,172,000 lect, less than half that of 1879. In 1877 it roAchod total of 34,011,003 feet ; so It will be seen that during the year just closed thcro was a slight increase.,, 1EOAPITUI.ATION.

The lint that the enormous total of over two billions of foot of lumber have boon scnttoinarkotliom Williaius port (luring tho past ten years shows the magnitude ol tho lumbering inter est and the heavy capital required to carry it on. It also gives the reader a practical idea ot the vast numbor ol trees that have boon cut on the moun tains and in tho valleys to supply the material for this amount of lumber. It is estimated that four saw-logs aro averaged to a tree, so that nearly throe million of trees have beon sacri ficed within this period of tinio. THE OUTPUT TI1IS WINTER. Kncouragod by tho buoyancy of the market and tho prospect of a continu ance of good times, tho manufacturers aro engaged in cutting a very heavy stock this Winter, and, if thote 18 plenty of snow in tho mountains dur ing January and March, tha amount of logs bunked along tho streums, roady for tho .Spring freshet, will be very largo. Loggers are at work along the streams of Clearfield, Elk, Clinton and I'otlor counties, and tho forests are musical with the ring of tho sturdy woodsman's ux. ft is estimated by thoso best qnulified of judging that not less than 230,000,000 lect will bo cut this Winter, and others put tho stock as high as 300,000,000, two thirds of which will be pinealono. With sufficient floods in the Spring this will bo floated down tho lateral streams to tho river, and thence carried to the great boom at Williamsport lor safe keeping until it can be rultod out and handed ovor to tho respective owners to he manufactured Into lum ber. The logs of each manufacturer are designated by cortain marks, w.hich are well known to those engaged in tbo business, and which all'ord acurious .tuny- to iue Hiimuuico. n ages in the woods this inter rango from 810 to t'-l per month and found. THE PLANING Ml U.S. worhmtW,llttrtfn,SrW'(lt'1 lYirArl I are compelled to run extra hours in order to keep up with the demands abroad. 1'ooin, sash and blinds are in much demand for building purposes, as well as flooring. Heveral firms ship their manufactures to boutu America, the West Indies and Kurope. I'ntil within a low weeks the box lactones have been very much crowded with work, but at present there is a lull, caused by the holidays. Large quanti ties of boxes are made hero for tho shipment of oil cans to foreign coun tries, principally uormuny and Italy. Tho manufacture of toy pianos also gave employment to a large number of boys and girls, as -weft 'as skilled workman. One firm alono had a con tract to furnish 50,000 of thoso little instruments for a houso in Now York, and it is probablo that noarly 75,000 wero made in the last six months. This is a now industry for Williamsport, and enables manulacturors to profita bly consume much material that oth erwise would bo lost This industry will undoubtedly grow, bocauso thoro is a certain amount of refuse at the mills that could be utilized in tho manu facture of millions ol woodon toys that is now burnod in order to get it out of the way.

The particulars ot the tulo of tho tier man lu.mil von Kim river were received to-night. Thoy wem moving from a shanty into a now house, and were anxious to get settled in better quar ters bel'oro Thursday, and before the prevailing blir.card grow worse and the mother was conllncd. Two little boys were bundled op and plaued in a dry-goods box. The father and mother wore carrying things into their now houso when tho overexertion caused her suddenly to give birth to a child in the now, cold house. The father stopped with her for some time and then wont alter anothor boy and girl that were making their way from the shanty to the house, lie succeeded in bringing them to thoir mother. Ho then went after tho two little boys in tho box, who wero wrappod up moro socurely than the larger boy and girl that he had piloted in first. The Btorm evidently blew harder and tho man got numb and bewildered. When found ho was by tho box, and appar ently had attomptod to raise it on bis bock to carry it and tho children to the bouse. One liltlo boy was found sitting upright, and tho other with his head dropping forward into his liltlo brother's lap. Tho formef hud bit bis hps while his tooth continued to chat ter. The boy and girl were badly fror.cn in the legs, arms and liico, but not fatally, lhe lather not returning to tho house told tho mother his fulo, and sho started for a neighbor, half a miio distant. She walked part of tho way and rolled a part. How she got through is moro than sho know. The neighbors went in search of the father and boys and found thorn as stated, slone dead.

Till GREAT PUIlLISHKa EXPIRES AFTER A UHIEF IM.NRS8 HISTORY OF fl!8 LIFE. Henry Carter, belter known by his adopted name, "Frank Leslie," died on Saturday cvpning, Jan. 8lh, 1880, at b o clock, at In lute residence, io. nil tilth avenue, Hew York city. Hi death waB caused ly complicated dis cases, and his wife said it was buslciitd by tho vexation caused by a recent lawsuit with his son Henry. His vitalily was so great that as late aa the day piovioua to amis death he prepared the plan lor bis pictorial journal, and Saturday morning ho dressed, walked about the room and partook of a hourly meal. Toward tno atternoon hiB con dition bccarsis tnaro critical, ho grad tiallv Bank i ' iMConscionsness. uud about 4 o'clock was ublo only to recog nir.e his wife. lie died calmly and without any pain. Ho was born at Ipswich, England, in 1821, His tathor was Joseph Carter, a clove manufacturer, and Henry wus designed to follow bis lather in that business. A very slight circumstance had turr.od voiitiir Carter's mind in the direction which mado him a poor glovemakor but a fiist-class engravor. On his way home Irom from school ho was accus tomed to puss a silversmith's shop, and looking through tho window ho saw tho workmen engraving lottcrs and designs upon silver aid gold. Hu no ticed tho tools and tho manner in which tho workmen used them, and fired with the ambition of becoming an ongruvor, ho saved kits monoy, penny by penny, and bought tools, ono by one, until he had a complete set. Then ho began to work fir himself in the ovcnings alter his tabor in the glove factory was over, and in this way, lit tle by liltlo, and without teaching, he acquired tho rudiments of tho trade to which ho secretly intended to dovoto his life. In 1833, when 17 years of ago, ho wus sent to London by his father, and became clerk in tho glove establishment of Iib undo, with a view of obtaining a more extended acquaint ance with tho glove-making business. Ho was placed in charge of tho glove department of tie large dry goods houso which his uaclo managed, and he performed his duties conscientiously, but with no enthusiasm. His heart was not in the work. Every moment that could be taken from his work was dovotcd to drawing, sketching, engrav. ing, and his productions found a ready murkct in the London illustrated pa pers. His father and his uncle con tinually discouraged him in his artistic aspirations, and he was forced to en gage in the work surreptitiously. In order to keep his secret, ho adopted the nom de crayon "Frank Leslie," and is was under this naino that most of hit rodl,.in ttnnMrcrl Three years ' r ,Ki. .,,. ' ' ,u , of this secret work passed, and then the dull roulino ot business became unbearablo to him. He had gained a by tto'alil orTus'lloitarVWru'ile Mm mined to do It, This was In 18U, when ho was but 20 years of age. He began his now life by getting married, and then accepted a position on the London Illustrated Xeu-t. In a very short timo ho was placod in chargo of tho engraving departmont ot mat journal, and in this position he re mained six years. It was while here that ho became fully acquainted with all tho details of tho management of a great illustrated journal, a knowlodgo he turned to (rood account when no embarkod in businoss for bimsoli in this country. It was here that ho learned the operation known to tho crall as "ovorlaying" in pictorial prints, by Inch Imlu and shade ellccts aro regu lated, which system he was tho first to introduce into Amoriea. During lua managemont of tho engraving depart mont of the Nexes ho mado many draw ings, and oxoeoled many engravings, all of which bore tho old namo ot Frank Loslio." In 1818 Mr. Carter determined to como to this country. Ho was still a young man, but his work in p.nglund had given him a name hero, and he be hoved bo would succeed. His first move was to secure the passage of an Act nf the Legislature of Mew York, enabling him to assume tho namo of "Frank Leslie," tho ground of tho poll- tion being that it was by that namo ho was known hero as an artist. His first work In this country was upon Ulrason's Pictorial. In 1.54, having accumulated a small capital, ho began publishing on Lis own account. 11 is first venture was the Gazette of Fash ion, a success Irom tho beginning. Year by year he waa enabled to increase its siec, until at length it becamo a lull neducd mauczino. I he name was changed, and it is now known as Frank JjfMie -Lady i Magazine. The journal with which tho aamo of Frank Leslie is most intimately associated in the public mind is Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper. Tho first number was piintud Decomber 11, 1855, and tho success ot tho ven I ii ro was established from the beginning. Ho invented for this a new syatom of engraving largo pictures, lie found that for a double page illustration the constant work ol a skillful engraver for two woeks was required. In order to socuro rapidity of execution on snch blocks, he had them cut into thirty-two squaros, and omployed an engravor for each square, on which a section of tho picture was imprinted. By this means a double pago Illustration can bo prepared for tho press insido of twenty-four hours, and every large engraving house in the country has adopted the, system. Tho domestic relations of Mr. Leslio had not boon pleasant from tho timo of his marriage in London, and In I860 he and his wife scparatod. Three sons wore horn of tho marriago, via: Harry, Alfred and Soipio. Of those, Harry and Alfred are still living ; Seipio died last year. Mr. Leslie married again, nnd his second wife- survives him. In 1805, tho Chimney Corner was atnrtod, and the management of this was in trusted to Mrs. Leslie, as waa that of the riitfi'g Magazine. The success which atlondod all his ventures led Mr. Leslio on to further publications. In rapid succession ho issued the Boys' and (UrW Weekly, Pleasant limit, tho Lady's Journal, edited by Mrs. Leslio, the Popular Monthly, the Sunday Mag azine, tho Budget of Wit and Chatter box. In addition to these he published the llhistrite SCeitung, an illustrated pa per in German, which at once bocamo popular among the Germans. He also published reprints of the novels which appeared from time to time in his journals, books of travel, and other works, and every venture which he made waa uniformly successful. Mr. Leslie spent tho money which ponrod into his coffors with great liberality. He owned a magnificent bouse at Sara toga, surrounded by boanliltil gardens, where he oxtendod bis hospitality to his friends. He fairly squandered his money, and the result was Inevitable. On the 8th of September, 1877, be saw rnln staring him In tho faco. Tho - REPUBLICAN. mugnificcnt business which he had built up in earlier und mora prudent days oould not support tho constant drain which ho mode upon its resources. A nolo went to protest, and then Frank Leslie assigned all his property in trust to I. W. England. Sinco then tho busi ness has been carriod on by the As signoc. Mr. Leslie, however, has hud much to Buy regarding the conduct of affairs, and, up to within two weeks of ins death, was dully til ho seen in the establishment in l'ark 1'laeo making suggestions to tho workmen, with whom ho was ulways popular. . Tho funeral took placo from liev. Dr. Chnpin's Church, on Tuesday, tho 13th inst., and was largely attended. The remains were intcrrod in Wood lawn Cemetery. THE TA Y BRIDGE HORROR. I.OOKINU FROM TDK WINDOWS OF A COSt 7 ROOM ON TBI FLASH I N1 DOWN OF THE TRAIN. The English papers contain very littlo of interest concerning tho Tay Bridgo disaster not already laid before our roadors by cable. The London Telegraph of tho !i0th contains this de scription by an oye-witnoss of the catnslropbo : "Pnjoying tho coscy comlorts ol my own parlor firesido on Sunday night, 1 listened to the horco clamor of tbo storm without and felt a deep soiibo of gratitude tor tno security 1 possossod mingled witu a tooling ol compassion for tho sailors on tho sea battling with tho storm.

I lookod at my watch and saw that it was ex. actly 7 o'clock. 'Tho Edinburgh train will bo duo immediately. 1 exclaimed to my wile, 'come and lot us watch to see if it will attempt to cross on such a night.' So saying, we turned down tho gas in the parlor and prepared to await the appearance of tho train. Tbo ight by tbist!tno had become most fitful. Great masses ot clouds were hcavens7at times totally obscuring the liirht of the lull moon. 'Thoro she comos,' cried ono of tho children, and, at that moment, the slowly moving lights of the Edinburgh train could be distinctly soon rounding tho eurvo at Worlmot, and passing tho signal-box at tho South sido, ontoring upon the long straight lino ol that portion of the bridgo. Tho train onco on tue bridge seemed to move along with greater swiftness, and whon the engine entored tho tunnul like cloistore of tho great girders my little girl exactly do- scribed tho ctlcct OI 1110 lights as seen through the lattico work whon sho exclaimed, 'Look, papa, isn't that like lightning 1" All this take somo lime to writo down, but to tho eye it seemed as if almost simultaneous.wnn tno cn- tranco of tho train upon the bridge. A comet-like burst of fiory sparks iprnng out as if forcibly ejected into the darkness from the engino. In a long visiblo train tho streak of fire was seen till quenrhed in tho water bolow.

Solomon put himself on record con cerning matrimony to tho effect that "whoso findcth a wile flnduth a good thing." Houghton, of Yonkera, in the Slate of Now York, had evidently read this. Having found ono wilo, ho reas oned within himself that the findings of tho man who should find two wives ought to bo twico as desirable ns of the poor lullow whoso ambition led him no higher than to seek 'nnd litui one. Having turned to tho history of tho wiso man ol old, he found a record of wholo wagon-loads of wives and concluded that Solomon must have been greatly blessed in his household. Solomon had plenty ol monoy as woll as plenty of wile. Houghton was by no means as flush as Solomon in the mat ter of wagos, and aa he received only fifteen dollars a week, was forced to content himself with two wives. To tho first Mrs. Houghton he was mar ried twonty years ago. To Mrs. Hough ton number two he has been united only two years. It was with Borrow in his heart and a black bandngo around his hat that ho made lore to tho latest Mrs. Houghton, llo laid beforo her his alleged condition ot be reavement. Shu wept with him and for him, and together their tears coursed down liko tho Summer rain, llo told her the story of his old love, and took her to an adjacent cemetery that thoy might plight thoir mutual ndection over tho gravo of tho departed. Tho gravo afterwards proved to be that of his mother-in-law or somebody elso. At all events it was not that of! the first Mrs. Houghton, (or now that lady appears in the solidity of ber own flesh and tho vitality of her own blood and she indignantly scoffs at tho idea of over having boen laid in any gravo. Houghton rashly complicated bis house hold affairs by Keeping his wives with in a tew miles ot each othor, and ad ded an additional complication in letting bis daughter by tho hrst wile into the dreadful socrct. By ono of those haps or mishaps which must sooner or later happen when a man has a braco of wives, theso two ladies fell into each othor's society. They woro naturally astonished. Under such circumstances ladies usually claw at each other's faces and tear down each other's back hair. JS'ot so with theso two wives. Thoy acted liko philosophers. Instead of fighting for an undivided interest in their liege lord thoy calmly sat down ovor a cup of tea. Tbey resolved to join their funds and forces in employ ing a lawyer to secure punishment lor tho deceitful Houghton. The unhappy man was mado a prisoner. He under took to show that ho bad nine years ago been divorced from bis first love, and that with all ber 'faults ho loved bor still, and with such devotion as to cleave unto bor notwithstanding the legality of the separation. But Mrs. Houghton tho first held up her hands and screamed aloud at tho idea of divorce, saying thot this was tho first ohop-lullon Houghton groanctt aloud and said ho was in a bad dox. in tins sentiment tho bystanders unanimously agreed with him. 1 Tho miserable uougliton languishes in jail awaiting trial and preparing for a protracted term of bard labor. His views on matrimony havo undergone a radical revolution. Ho is opposed to women, and says that for the rest of his li lo ho will live a bachelor, and that no man ought to bo such a fool as to attempt the luxury of two wives unless ho can lodgo tho twain at least ten thousand miles apart. miadcU phia Times.
