Dated Petroleum Centre, Aug. 21, 1872, A very disgraceful affilr, in wblcb a wo man of the town named Rose narper figured very extensively, occurred near tbe upper end of Washington street, last night Our Informant slates Ibal the woman was Intox icated at the lime, and outraged all manner of decency, by using tbe mot vulgar lan guage In tbo vocabulary, throwing eto net ai and grossly insulting tbo patseta-by. We trust tbe next time thia vixenish female wo man gstson the "rampage" the polios will take bold of Ibe matter end see to It thai she la punished. It does not follow because it is a woman, that she should be privilege ed to kick op a rompa whenever sbe takes It Into ber addle pate to do so. Let them be learnt better by too attoog arm of jus.

Thia Is from a lady'a diary: "At last night's party there were some two or three women loo much decollette, and wheo a gentleman bent over to apeak to liism they used Ihelt fans lo bide their necks. True modesty ought not to be aware of exposure, and thia effort of concealment excites . nun's Imagination more than simple expos ure." A mueb needed eootrivaaea baa recently been Invented by a Ciooionatt mecbenio by whloh cars may be coupled without tbe necessity of going between them. . Tbe Jujube is a native of the East Iodlts, and was originally called by botanists Ma in Indioa or Iodinn Apple. The trees are of medium size, solrtom growing more than twenty-five or thirty feet high. They have very orooked braocbes, covered with long recurved thorns, and a foliage of dark shin ing green. In tbelr native country tbe tree loom in January or February, aud the fruit rlpena In June and July. Fruit oblong, of a brownitb color, and one locb in length, containing one seed, somewhat resembling that of Ibe date. It is esteemed delicious, being ol a most plesssnt subacid. It dries readily, and can thus be preserved with but very little trouble. Tbe jujube has been cultivated to a limited extent in tbe southern Atlantlo and Gulf States. It will prove bardy wherever tbe orange cao be grown, and should be more extensively cul tivated. In Connecticut a new school law has been pasted wbioh provides for giving the minori ty an active part In tbo management of schools.

If there are nine mem ben, three to be elected annually; eaobbal lot may bave two names only, and Ibe two namss on the majority ticket will be elected together with tbe one which receives tbe highest number of votes on tbe minority ticket. If the two names on the minority tlckei receive an equal number ol votes tbe first in order on tbe ticket it to be declated elected. This la tbe way in wblcb Indianapolis got Its name. In tbe old days, when Ibe first colony of white settlers arrived there, the ooly tavern waa kept by an old Delaware Indiao, called Apollos, because be always watered bia wblsky, of wbioh be waa very (ond. The tow o was named after him, "In dian Apollos," wbioh was finally corrupted Into Iudianapolla.

A Thrilling War Sceae. Out In a certain Western fort, com tine ago, tbe major conceived tbe Idea that ar tillery might be used effectively, In fighting with ibe Indians, by dispensing Iwlth gun- carriages, and fastening tbe cannon upon backs of mules. So be explained bia view to the commandant, and it waa determined to try the experiment. A howitzer waa se lected and strapped upon an ambulance mule, with tbe muzzle pointing towards tbe tall. When tbey bad seoured and loaded tbe gun with a ball cartridge, tbey lead the calm and steadfaat mule out on a bluff, and set up a target in tbe middle ol tbe river to praotice at. Tbe rear of Ibe mule was turn ed towards tbe target, and he waa backed gently up to tba edge of tbe bluff. Tbe officers stood around In semicircle, wbile Ibe major went p and inserted a timefuse la Ibe touobbole of tbe bowitaer. When tbe fuse waa ready, tbe major lighted it and re tired. In a moment tbo hitherto unruffled mule beard tbe fining upoo bia neck, and tbls made blm uneasy; be moved bis bead round lo ascertain what waa going eo, and, as;be. did ibis entire body turned like wise, and thus tbe muzzle of ; tbe bewltzir began to sweep around tbe horizon. The male became more and sore excited, bia curiosity became most intense; la a see ond or two be waa standing with bia feel in a branch, almost touching ooe another. making six revolutions In a minute, and tbe bowltzer,;do yon understand, tbrealeniog sudden death la every man within half a mile. Tbe commandant waa ' observed quickly climing up a tree; the lieutenants were aeon dim log ever tbe bluff Into tbe river, as if tbey didn't care at all about tba price of uniforms; the adjutant made good time towards tbe fort; Ihe sergeant began o mrow np breattworkt with bia bayonet, and tbe major rolled over the 'ground and groaned. In two or three minutes there waa a puff of smoke, and a dull tbud, and the mulalO, where was bet A solitary mule might bave been aeen turning succes sive back aomrrsalta over tbo bluff. Anally ooly to rest at anchor with bia howitzer at tba bottom ol tbe river, while tbe ball went forward toward tbe lort,,blt tbe chimney of or toe major's quarters, scattering tbe bricks into tbe parlor, and frightening tbe major's wife Into convulsions. Tbey do not allude to it now, and no re port of the experiment was ever soot to Ibe War Department It is said that tbe mule artillery is not only a decided failure, bat when any of Ibe men speak of It Ihe major says tbe guard'bouse It the beat place for tbem.
