Altlidiih it is only oiiilit mouths since wo were compelled ti) Turcliao n now Washington jnosH on account o(' our ro pceJ eiil irgeu.cnt, the vapid increase in uur circulation has again forced us into making still greater iinrn'ovcnionts in our jiress-rooin, and to discard the hand pre.-s us too slow in its operations for printing the large number of papers wo now cir culate Wo have accordingly purchased A NEW l'OWKll PUESS, which was made expressly for this i.fiiee. It is of the style known as the Potter Country Press," and was made by Messrs. C. Potter, Jr. & Co., of Xew York, and 111 UppCUl'IlIKC ii nd workmanship reflects much credit on the makers. The case and rapidity with which it docs its work must be seen to be appreciated. This press is arranged to run by steam. OUR ENGINE, by which the press is to be driven, is an upright engine of three horse power, and is furnished by Messrs. Wcimer & Bros , of Lebanon, Pa. It is one of the nicest arranged pieces of machinery that can be devised for a printing cilice j not only supplying ample power to drive three such presses, but taking up little more room than a stove the use of which is dispensed with, as the engine supplies both power and heat. We have now the only steam power press in the county and this, with other improvements we have added, make the Jioomjieil 'I'lmes office the most com plete newspaper and job office in this section of tho State. Our steam press will run every JIou day aud Thursday afternoon, when those interested in such matters can see it in operation. Meeting of Congressional Conferees.

B. Ruber, receiving a majori ty of all the votes, was declared the can didate. The nomination was then made unanimous, and the meeting adjourned. Senatorial nominations.

I From the various rumors which have been in circulation during tho week past, it is evident that tho Prussians are still having tho best of tho light, though their success has been attained at a terrible cost. A dispatch from tho Crown Prince says : " Our losses in the recent battles have been so great that I shrink from learning the actual facts." The attention of tho Prussian army for a few days past bus been occupied with MacMahon, endeavoring to prevent his effecting n junction with Bazaine, and consequently the advance on Paris has been stayed. Later despatches say that MacMahon is now so effectually disposed of, that the march on Paris will bo again resumed. It is? even rumored that his army is entirely destroyed, and that from ten to twenty thousand have been driven on to Belgium soil ami were there dis armed. The largo surface of country over which the recent battles have ex tended, render it difficult to get correct reports of the events which arc so rapid ly transpiring. There is no doubt that a great part of the French reverses are owing to that nation having made no calculation for the battles boingfought on French soil, but all their plans were laid with the expectation of being the invaders, instead of having to defend their own territory, while tiie Prussians made their plans to invade Franco and appear t know all about the roads, bridges, defences, and resources of every locality. This must be ono of the secrets of their great success. Since the above was written, we have despatches to the effect that Napoleon has surrendered his whole army, and that the war is virtually over. However much we may hope for the truth of this state ment, we think it. best to wait for furth er dispatches before believing it. The Chinese Question. The tide of public sentiment is setting strongly in favor of tho adoption of strin gent laws at the new session of Congress forbidding the importation of Chinamen under contracts engaging them to labor for a term of years. Similar legislation was adopted more than half a century ago to check the importation of the Ger man redemptioncrs, who had been hired out to redeem or repay the cost of their passage to this country; and the hostility to tho Chinese which is displayed in vari ous quarters can scarcely fail to induce analagous action now. The coolie sys tem, which has bceu tried by several coun tries has led to the perpetration of many acts of inhumanity to tho Chinese, and if all other motives are thrown out of view, it should not be tolerated in any form. As particularly exemplified in the Peruvian guano islands, in Cuba, and in the French colonies, it united tho infamies of slavery with the horrors of the slave trade, and if it was allowed to expand iu this coun try unchecked by public opinion and Govemiental interference, it would speed ily become here, what it has been else where, the fruitful cause of frightful suf ferings. The worst phases of this coolie system have never been tolerated by American authorities, for our Consuls have at least prevented the embarkation from China for our shores of all persons who did not profess a desire to try their fortunes in this new world. Tho special point now aimed at, however, which is the preven tion of tho transportation hither of Chi namen whose passage-money is dependent upon the labors they arc to perform after their arrival here, will be a more difficult task than the prevention of the exporta tion of unwilling emigrants from the Flowery Kingdom. It will bo comparu atively easy to deceive a Consul, or to evado stringent regulations on u poiut like this, aud perhaps tho best that can be douo is to pronounce all contracts made for the proposed purpose not only null and void, but punishable by fine and imprisonment. As comparatively few Chinamen bo longing to tho laboring classes can save money enough to pay iu advance i'or tho voyago across the Pacific, such a require ment would dcKtroy all danger of an ex cessive influx of these people; und us white men ulono can be naturalized, there would bo no serious cause for either po litical or industrial apprehension in any quarter if it could bo rigidly enforced. From the notice this problem is now receiving tho above which wo copy from tho Inquirer, being only one of muny on tho same subject it is evident some de cided action will bo taken before long to wards settling the question. Hand bills Circulars and al kinds of Job Work, done promptly, at tlie?7YiM Office. A Singular Case. Since the full of tho Pcmbciton Mills tho city of Lawrence, Mass., has known no such excitement as that produced on Saturday, tho JSOth ult., by tho unaccount able appearance of n, female's features in a light of glass in tho window of a house on Broadway. It appears that a few days previous to the discovery of the phe nomenon, an elderly lady, after a long and wearing sickness, had died. The day succeeding that on which the funer al occurred, a lady, who was visiting one of tho tenants of tho same house, in pass ing saw a figure in tho attic window, which she instantly recognized ns that of the deceased lady, and with great con sternation communicated the fact to the other occupants of the building, and in a short time the entire neighborhood was made acquainted with the strange and exciting discovery. The window of tho room in which tho woman had died was immediately under that in the attic, and was the usual sit ting place oi tho deceased. None pro fessed to believe a word of the wild story and were only convinced upon an actual view with their own eves. A sister of the deceased, hearing of the matter, visi ted tho place and pronounced the like ness to be that of her relative. The only remainiug members of the family are two small children. The. excitement momentarily increased as also did tho crowd iu the street, and by noon it was so great as to render the passage of the horse-cars quite difficult. The inmates tried various means to re move it from tho glass, but were un successful, and, with a view of sending the crowds away, removed the sash to the rear of the building. Early on Monday morning another crowd gathered around the house, and Dr. William 1). Lamb, u prominent phy sician, obtained permission to remove the sash to his office, on Essex street. Hero it was placed in his window, opening up on the main business street in the city, and every one could get a fine view from below. Tho window was examined by intelligent and scientific men ; and while some were of the opinion that it might be the result ot the action ot lightuiug. when some person had been sitting near, others thought tho theory one ot mipos There is one thing about it, at least, tliat seems strange, and tliat is that no face or fiirure is to be seen iu looking out from the inside. During the day a firm of photographers, after several attempts, succeeded iu getting a very good likeness of the sash aud face it contained. Experimenting on Whisky. Dr. Parks of Loudon, has been cxpcrl meriting on a healthy soldier to find tho effects of alcohol. He had him first take no alcohol for six days, then he took in di vided doses, from 1 to 8 ounccB of pure alcohol ; thou water for six days and then for three days twelve ounces of line brandy containing forty-eight pcr-cent, ot alcohol Tho effect in modifying weight was in appreciable. Alcohol produced little effect on the temperature of tho system, though slightly raising it. The pulse was materially affected, rising from 77-5 before alcohol to 94-7 after the largest dose. Estimating the normal daily work ot tho ventricles ot the heart as equiva lent to the lifting of 122 tons a foot, it was found tliat during the alcoholic peri od the heart was compelled to lift an ex cess of HJ-8 tons, aud during the last two days of 2-i tons, lhe conclusion was that it was utterly useless in health, and positively injurious, in larger quantities than two ounces daily. There seemed to be indicated an advantage iu its use if employed in rousing a feeble appetite and ot exciting a lecble heart. Miscellaneous News Items.

J lieso third parties all lack political weight in their respective localities. The polico of New York have arres ted a man named Michael Ryan, on sus picion ot being implicated m the murder of Mr Nathan. Tho evidence, so far, against him is slight, and no doubt ho will bo dis charged. An occasional arrest as in this case, serves to revive public interest in tho tragedy and convinces tho public that tho detectives still endeavor to earn tho re ward for tho apprehension of tho murderer. A most amusing scene occurred the other day on tho departure of a Berlin regi ment to the scat ot war, at a IJeilin railway depot. A woman was dividing her fare well addresses pretty equally between two men, and every body supposed they must bo her husband and her brother. After tho train had gono a sympathizing specta tor made the remark to her that it must conio very hard on her to lose in this man ner her husband and her brother at tho samo time. " Oil, you aro mistaken, sir," exclaimed tho weeping woman, "it was not my brother ; one ol them is my present husband, and the other is a man from whom I was divorced six months ago." CS A young couple started in a buggy last week to Scales Mound, 111., for the pur pose of being joined in wedlock.

In all her troubles she declined to be sent home as sho had come, and in tho courso of tho afternoon tho services of a civil officer were procured, and tho pair made man and wile. E2T C. Nutt, D.
