The New York Sun, for instance makes the remark that "the statement of so high an au thority as Col. Alexander MeClure that Republicans are generally com plaining of the waste of the public money in the entertainments given Gen. Grant, is a striking indication that Grant is not so very popular in his own party." Quoting Alexander McCIure as "high authority" among Republicans will flatter neither him therli. The Sun would not probably nor do so except (or its expressed "hope to see this tide of disapprobation swell." It thinks that If It did it might save the Republican party and the country the infliction upon them of Grant as a candidate. The Sun may with propri ety, we think, retire from a contest in which it stands little chance of ulti mate success,-that of opposing Grant's nomination. That seerns to be almost a foregone conclusion. He has proven that lie possesses a hold tpon the popular heart never enjoyed by any ex-President, perhaps, since the day of Washington, and irespeelive of jioii tics, would bring with him in case of liia election a sense of assuned political peace and cpjietudo, which is is possi ble for no other man, of any party, to produce. His nomination would unite and solidify the Republicans as that of no other could, while thous ands of Democrats would not object even by their votes to seeing him again made President. The cry of intended Cieserism, Imperialism and that the election of Grant would be a step toward turning the government into a monarchy is all foolishness. There is already a tendency in that di rection, however remote and carefully concealed it may lie among some of the leaders of the Republican party, and we believe that while Grant would remain in office he would frown upon and oppose it to the utmost of his personal and official inilueuce.

SfHCExi.to, Clerk Q. S. Dampen the Air Now. Am. Agriculturist for Jan. We can liadly too often suggest the importance of providing ample mois ture In all rooms heated by stoves, furnaces, steam pipes or hot water pipes. There are sound scientific reasons for this, as well as In the re sults of practical experience. As stated in "Short notes on Air" above, every degree of heat added to the at mjsphere in a room gives it a powerof absorbing and secreting moisture. The air in a room 20 by 20 feet and 10 feet high, at 32, holds, secrets, about 1 pints of water. The same air heated to "0, secrets upwards of two quarts of water, and unless this is supplied, it is hungry for more water, absorbs it from every accessible source, from the , furniture, from our bodies, and es pecially from the breathing organs the mouth, throat, and lungs leaving them dry and husky. Therefore, every time the air in the room is changed by the admission of fresh, cold air, and heated to 70, two quarts of water should be evaporated into the room. ' The strong objections some have to warm-air heaters huve arisen mainly from this cause. In using furnace heaters we always put into the hot air chamber extra water-pans besides any that are supplied by the manufacturers, and take good care to always have them filled with Mater. In stove-heated rooms there should usually be an evaporating surface of water equal to one square foot for every 12 feet square of flooring, and more if the water Is not on a hot place enough to keep it rapidly evaporating. Plants in room are mainly destroyed, or have a sickly growth, because the warm air becomes too dry and sucks out the very juices of the plants. The "house plants" "olive" or otherwise suffer similarly. In a warm room, a large towel frequently wet and wrung so as not to drip, and hung over a chair back near the stove, will make a marked difference in the com fortable feeling and healthfulncss of the atmosphere. Exposition ok 1876. Wandering through tlie United States section of this truly wonderful Exhibited, i.y perornamented and over-displayed as the most of it is, I came upon an elegant glass case, whose modesty was the more conspicuous from its neigh bors' finery, surmounted by the motto Diynis I'ra'niifi and displayed, in neat packages, the medical preparations of the house of Dr. J. C. Ayer & Co, Lowell, Mass. I was aware of the word-wide repu tation of this eminent firm, for the character aud quality of their goods, and remember well their agents in London, Messrs. Newberry, in St. Paul's Churchyard. Having a leisure hour, I determined to examine the contents of this case, myself, and I was surprised to see the delicate per fection to which they have brought their household remedies. I was chagrined at the reflect ion that, while we have at home the most skilful and, pre-eminently, the best physicians in the world, these Yankee doctors dis tance us so far in the line of popular medicines for family ubc. They have the sharpness to take ad vantage of the high scientific discoveries among us and make pills and potions as palata ble as they are salutary. I was told by a leadiug druggist in Philadelphia, that lr. Ayer's manufactory was the largest in America, giving employ ment to hundreds. I must go to Lowell and see it on my way home. Correspondence of th6 Loudou (Eng.) Teleyruph. Death in the Jail. For several weeks Sarah Grey, a young woman of seventeen or eighteen years of age, the mother of a child about three months old, has been confined in the county jail, and at the recent term of court was convicted of fornication, but tlie Judge taking pity upon her owing to her helpless condition, ordered that she be dismissed and sent to her home in Knox township. This privilege she did not take advantage of but re mained with the jailor, Mr. L. C. Smith, helping to do the work of the family. Last Sunday morning, at about live o'clock, she rapped at Mr. Smith's door and asked to come in, saying that her baby was dead. She was admitted aud Mr. Smith sum moned a physician, but it was too late, death having already taken place, caused uo doubt by strangulation, done accidentally by the mother in her anx iety to make it comfortable. The Sheriff provided a coffin for the corjise and it was decently interred in the old grave yard on Sunday evening. The mother, we understand, is an illiterate creature has not a particle of education and is the victim of some scoundrel who should have languished in prison in her stead. Hers is a case that calls for sympathy, but we are afraid that it will be given in such particles as to be entirely valueless, even professing christians wrapping themselves up in self-righteousness so closely that char ity cannot find its way out to such poor creatures as her, who is hardly capable of a proper appreciation of her pitiblo condition.

Two brothers, Harry and Thomas Zimmerman, aged nine and ten years respectively of Bethlehem, Pa., were drowned Monday morning while playing on the ice, The Supreme court, of this State, has decided, in a case taken up from Washington county, that the mother inherits from an illegitimate son dy ing without issue, and that his wife is only entitled to a life interest in one-half of his estate. Persons contemplating bringing actions against country newspapers for libel, should read the following from the New Bethlehem Vindicator.' We see by the court proceedings of Arm strong county that Walker, the man who was going to sue us for libel, lias gone on a visit to tlie Western peni tentiary for a period of fifteen monhs. An Erie county colored gentleman stole a hog recently, which he killed. A string was tied around its legs, and the animal thrown around his neck. While crossing a fence with tlie stolen property, he slipped, the hog going on one side, the darky on the other, breaking his (Sambo's) neck causing instant death. This is evidence con clusive tlmt it is wrong to steal. ' About four o'clock Monday morn ing an explosion occurred in the Painterstown coal mine, near Irwin's Station, on tlie Pensylvania railroad some sixteen miles east of Pittsburg. Samuel Kistler, a married man, and Michael Kessler, who leaves a wife and four children, were instantly killed. Chris. Fry was seriously burned, This is the first explosion which lias ever occurred in these mines, aud it is intimated that it was caused by foul play, which could have been pro duced by reversing a trap or draft door thus shutting off air from tlie work ing entries. If the explosion hud oc curred an hour later sixty men would have been in the mine. Eii Vasbinder, Been Smith, Jno. Clark ami Robert Steward, the hun ters who left Brookville last October for the purpose of hunting in the Michigan forests, returned home last week. They say deer are exceedingly plenty in that locality, and, although this was a very poor season for the business, they succeeded in bagging forty-one. This was done by three of tiieni, the other party failing to make even one bite tlie iliist. They say tliey arc confident fully twenty-live more were killed, which they failed to cap ture, ou account of not having either dog or riiow. They report a very pleasant trip. Brookville Dcmm-ntt. Pittsburgh, December 2t. The indications are that Alleghany county will be able to effect a very satisfactory compromise on the rail mad riot losses. A consultation was held yesterday morning between representatives of tlie Pennsylvania railroad company, the county authorities, and a number of prominent citizens. The meeting was a private one, hut it is understood that the railroad comrianv scaled down their claims very considerably, and representatives of private claimants Intimated that they had similar propo sitions to otfer. It is probably that a public meeting wiil lie held at an early day, when the propositions will bi fully discussed and n commended for,, adoption. It is thought that the en tire claims can be reduced aiie-third or probably one-half. On Christmas Eve, during a hall at the Shilller Hose-house Lancaster Pa., a tight occurred, in which George Grolf, aged 23 years, was struck on the head with a blackjack. Little attention was paid to the matter at the time, but at 5 o'clock on Christmas morning Adam Grolf, living in the vicinity of the hose-house, was awak ened by knocking at his door, end. responding to the summons, he went down and found his injured brother sitting oil the step. He helped him in, and soon after sent for u physieion w ho did all he could to relieve the sufferer. Tlie latter remained uncon scious from that lime until! ten o'clock this morning, when lie died. Coroner Mishler held an inquest this afternoon at which two reputable physicians testified that deceased tiled from con gestion of tlie brain, produced by blows from some hard instrument. Tlie inquest then adjourned until to morrow evening, when it is expected witnesses able to disclose tlie name of the party who struck the fatal- blow will lie present.

Many schemes are resorted to by swindlers to cheat people though tlie agency of the malls, aud among the cleverest recently discovered was that known as the revolver dodge. A firm pretended to send "good revolvers" to each purchaser remitting $3. The goods were purchased fi'tmi a firm in New York, ami thousands of revol vers were sent out through the mails. After a time, however and when the business had become very extensive the sending of revolvers suddenly ceased. The proprietors of tlie estab lishment then confined their attention solely to the receipt ami division among themselves of the remittances which were coining in great numbers. This, of course could not go tin for ever ami tine morning the proprietors all decamped. They however, left written orders with an agent for the receipt of their malls from the post office, and private instructions to tie liver tlie enclosure i to the wife of one of the proprietors. A flay or two later the proprietor of tlie New York -establishment from whom the revolvers had been pur chased, ami who seems also to have been a victim of tlie swindle, appeared upon the scene ami took possession ol all he could lay his hands on, as satis faction for his debt. Heseems to have attempted to make himself whole by continuing the business of sending re volvers in return for remittances re ceived, but he declined to fill the orders which had been received pre viously. One enterprising firm sent out a circular which read thus "The solargraph watch awarded a medal at the late fair, is a combina tion invention of the ancient sou dial and the mariner's compass. Its ex treme simplicity excites the wonder and surprise of all when they realize what it accomplishes The solargraph watch is inclosed in a neat metallic case, anil is as small aud com pact as the smallest ladies watch. It is furnished with a neat chain, and is worn in the vest pocket like any watch." A sample "solargraph watch" is found among the papers dealing with the subject. Tlie "neat metallic case" is of tlie value and general appearance of a small blacking box. Tlio "neat chain" i of the kind found by lucky purchasers of penny prize candy. The internal "works'' of tlio "watch'' con sist of a paper dial and a tiny magnetic needle The whole arrangment may have cost five cents The "unparalleled offer'' of the Bristol piano company is such a man ifest humbug that it is a marvel that anyone should have been duped by it. A flaming poster with a wood cut of a grand piano contains an offer to semi free "a beautiful piano, solid black walnut case," etc., to "any person who will forward us a, list of twenty persons in their locality who have no instrument and who you think would be liable to purchase a piano." The significant condition is appended that the persons sending the lit shall en close 15 "to cover expen.-es of box ing, packing, etc." Of course the whole affair was a barefaced swindle. Awi-'i'i. Accident. Mrs. Elizabeth Hill, of this borough, was burned to death on Thursday night, December 19th, under the following painful cir cumstances: Her husband, having returned home about 12 o'clock, re tired to bed, ami Mrs. Hill, finding the oil in tlie lantern very low, pro ceeded to till it. Bv some means tlio oil was spilt and her clothes caught lire. Hearing her wild screams, Mr. Hill jumped up from his bed and seized his wife, took her out on the back porch, where he stripped her of the burning garments, and then as sisted her to bed. The unfortunate woman died the next morning from her injuries. Huutzdalc yews. A Terriule Fall. A young mar ried man named Georgo Richards, residing in the "block-house," in West Clearlield, near the lower bridge, and wlio was employed as a carpenter at tlie new tannery buildings, met with an unfortunate and rather sell oils mishap on Tuesday forenoon of last week. He was working at tlie roof of one of the buildings when he accidentally fell to the frozen ground below, a distance of about Wiirty feet, alighting on his head and shoulders. Both of his arms were severely frac tured and he was hurt internally, having had several hemorrhages. He was immediately carried to his home, where a physician gave his injuries tlie necessary attention, ami bis re covery is probable, although the result of the accident cannot yet be deter mined.
