It is a most extravazant idea to comoare the v " I causes of thunder and the effects of lightn ing to the noise and effects of cannon and cannon ball; we are face to face with aD essentially superior force. It might be said that it constitutes a transition between this one and a better one; in fact, it is really subject to transcendental laws which our weak intelligence cannot grasp. Bodies have been killed repeatedly by lightning, and they have not given the slightest trace of any wound or scar, no slight touch of a burn or a contusion, no hint of the way by which the bird sprang : i r. i r i . from its confinement. Delicate and most subtle, we havesaid,has often been its work. Think of it melting a bracelet from a lady's wrist, yet leaving the wrist untouch ed; think of it melting instantly apairof crystal goblets suddenly without breaking them. Arago telU how the lightning one day visited the shop of a Suabian cobbler, did not touch the artizan, but magnetized all his tools. One can well imagine the immense dismay of the poor fellow; his hammer, pincers and awl attracted the needles, pins, tacks and nails, and caused them to adhere firmly to the tools. The amazed shoemaker thought that every thing io the shop was suddenly bedevilled, or else that he was dreaming. And there are several well-authenticated cases like this, showing that iron can be rendered magnetic by the electric cur rent. Wc read of a merchant of Wake field, who had placed in a corner of his room a box of knives and forks, and iron tools, destined to be sent to the colonies ;! in came the li??htii!n-. struck onen tha n,i,1 .11 U .rtil nn ! fWr and it was found, when they were picked ' . - . . . up, that every one had acquired new por pertics that they had all been affected by the subtle touch of the current. Some remained intact, others were melted, but they had all been rendered more or less magnetic, so that there was not a single nail in the box but miht have served the purpose of mariner s compass. STROUDSBUHG, MONROE COUNTY, PA., AUG The Growth of Mormonism. Mr. W II. Hooper, Congressional dele gate from Utah, has recently addressed an interesting letter to iUr. John W nanler, giving a sketch of the growth oi Li tah. He says the Mormons have built up Utah from a desert waste, which iwcniy years ajro was twelve hundred miles from cither settlements or navi"a ble rivers, to what is now claimed to bo a nourishing younir state, containing nni hundred thousand inhabitants, with t territorial extension of seventv-five thous and square miles. There arc eighty six flourishing townsind cities in the terri tory, with near one hundred postofBces, Willi ncr imst and- saw-mills.' vnnlon t , - J ..ww.u manufactories and manv other branches of the mechanic arts equal to those of the oiaer states. Ihere are one hundred churches, one hundred and twentv school. houses and three theatres, which equal tuoooi mc siar.es in size ana grandeur. The Mormons left Missouri in 1845, crossing Iowa, then a wilderness, and en camped on the banks of the Missouri, in what was then called the Pottawatomie country. Here they laid out the town now known as Council Bluffs. Io the spring of 1847 an advanced guard of one hundred and fifty men proceeded to Salt Lake valley, and selected the present site of Salt Lake City in July of that year. A few of these pioneers, under the lead of President Young, returned to the Mis souri river the same fall, leaving most of the men at the lake to plough and plant during the following season. In 1848 the great bulk of emigration of that year reached the valley, and found that much had been raised for sustenance. The march was attended by many hard ships. The industry of the pm!cMnf i shown in the fact that during the tedious journey of four months duration the spinning-wheel and loom continued their work, and hundreds of yards of goods were woven, the heavy wagon and slow motion of ox-teams giving an opportunity to spin and weave while the train was in motion. The first printing press ever tak en west of the Missouri was established by the Mormons at Independence, in the years 1832-S3. In 1850 there was not a shingle roof in Salt Lake City, which now contains twenty thousand inhabitants. Mr. Hoop er says that it is a remarkable fact that most of the money which has been made. and most of the fortunes which have been amassed in the territory of Utah in mer cantile pursuits previous to 1SC3, have been made by those who have not been Mormons ; and yet he has never known of a farm having been oncncJ. mill built, and very rarely a house erected in the territory, by any one not a Morman. Mr. Hooper estimates the Mormon emi gration from Europe, from 1850 inclusive, at an annual average of two thousaud souls, or an asuresatc of thirtv-six thousand : while the emigration from the states dur ing the same period has been about twen-ty-lour thousand. The estimated cost of taking these persons to Utah is eight mil- ion three hundred thousand dollars. The emigration from Europe this year is estimated at four thousand souls ; but it will.probably be greater. About one-third of the emigrants have paid their own expenses. The remainder have been taken out by what is styled J "the perpetual emigrating fund," which has been in organized existance about twenty years, and is composed of contri butions, tithe3; legacies, and funds drawn from various sources both iu Europe and America. The fund is kept up, in fact, by those who received its benefits repay ing when convenient the expense incur red in their emigration, in order that oth ers may receive a like benefit. During the present year 6150,000 was contribut ed in Salt Lake City, alone, to cnablo others to reach America. Mr. Hooper proves that it is cheaper to treat the Indians midly than to fight them, by stating that the United States Government paid only scventy-fivo thous and dollars for suppression of Indian hos tilities in Utah since the organization of the territory, while the Indian wars in Oregon and tho adjacent states have cost the Treasury millions. Mr. Hooper also asserts that Utah has done much, directly and indirectly, todc vclope California, Nevada, Montana and Idaho, enabling the latter territories, through the supplies drawn from Utah, to work the gold and silver mines, which have contributed so largely to the na tional wealth. To Horsemen. A correspondent of the Scientific Amer ican gives this advice to horsemen: Whenever they notice their horse direct ing his cars to any point whatever, or indicating the slightest disposition to be come afraid, let them, instead of pulling the rein to bring the horso towards tho object causing its nervousness, pull it on the other side. This will instantly divert the attention of the horse from the object which is exciting 'his suspiscous, and in nnety - uine cases out of a hundred tho nor80 wm Pay 00 nioro attention to tllO lobjcct, from which he will fly away if 'TArAltilir Iflnn trt ii 1... .11. forcibly driven to it by pulling tho wrong rein.

Bingham of Ohio, who, whilo speak ing at a llepublicau meeting in Bangor- iue., was insulted by a Copperhead, who cried out. "How about Mrs. Surratt." Mr. Bingham instautly responded : 'How about her ? Go and consult the records of the court that tried and convic ted Iter. Go and ask Gen.

Ex Gov. Seymour says i "Never bc foro in tho "history of our country has Congress taken a "menacing atitudo to ward its electors." It U certain that tho Democratic electors for whom Mr. Scy inour speaks have often taken a menacing attitude toward Congress. They did in 18G0, when they voted their States out of tho Union, and during the entire Rebel lion, until their "menacing attitudo" waa taken out of them by Gen. Giant. 27, ISGS. Description of the New Stamps for Dis tillers' Use. The Printing Bureau of the Treasury xcparimeni is now actively engaged in printing the tax-paid stamps for distilled spirits, in accordance with the new " accoruance wiui tnc new rev enue law. The stamna arc' about fivft in encs square, with a handsome vignette i . . : representing the reaping of grain, and arc made of ten different denominations, from twenty to one hundred and thirty. JGach denomination of stamps has nine coupons aiiucueu, so mat tucsc ten stamps will an swer for any number of gauged gallons, between those numbers. They arc bound in books, with stamps attached to each stamp, like bankers' checks, and bcin charged for their Tull value to the collector he get3 credit for all unused coupons re- maining in tnc book on its return ; and thus operates as a check upon the collec tor, preventing fraud cither by collusion or otherwise. The method by which re use, or the use a second time, of the stamp is prevented is new and ingenious. The stamp is pierced with a large hole in the centre, which is covered by a thinner pa per before printing. After it is printed and attached to the barrel it cannot .be soaked off and re used, as the beer stamps have been, because the stamp will come off in two pieces, which, from their pecu liar construction, cannot again be united on another barrel. The stamp is perman ently defaced by any attempt to remove it. One peculiarity of the stamp is that it cannot be printed except by what is known as the dry process, by hydrostatic power so that the stamps cannot, in the present state of the art, be printed any where but in the Treasury Department. This effectually prevents counterfeiting. The stamps, as well as the paper upon which they are printed, were invented by Mr. S. M. Clark, Chief of the Printing urcau. Operations of Solitary Confinement The Philadelphia penitentiary being an institution designed for separate or solitary confinement, there arc no large machine or workshops, no factories, no moving gangs of workmen convicts. The labor is all performed in the cells. Those engaged in chair-making, shoemaking weaving, jobbing, or what not, work in their own cells cat thercj drink there, sleep there. They never move out of them. Their day's labor over, the dirt, scraps and shavings arc swept in barrels or baskets, and removed by carriers. Of the poor fellows themselves you sec noth ing.. Outside workmen are employed to do what ever is required about the place. The prisoners are sedulously secluded in their rooms, and the vistor is not permit ted even to view them. They are shut off from the outside world as completely as if dead. Their very names are obli terated ; they are known only by num bers. That is the extent of their in dividuality. Of relatives or friends they sec but little. Oace in a period of three months an inspector's pass admits a wife or a mother to a conference with her criminal though loved one, and even then such are the precautions of the prison discipline, that they meet and talk only through the bars of a cell-door, and iu the presence of an officer of the institu tion. Poor satisfaction for the lips that moisten, for a kiss, for tho heart that yearningly throbs for an embrace ! Fif teen or twenty minutes also is the brief time allowed for the meeting. There arc in the institution at the present time somewhat over COO convicts. Two Serpents and a Cat Singular Case. 'PI. - V? .. 41 I. .1 n. .nu uM-sstifcr utjcrion relates tne lol lowing curious story : "A very singular occurrence took place in the warehouse of the Jlcssagcries Iniperialf, at Stora. . large case containing two serpents, direc ted from Batna to the superintendent of tne zoological Gardens in Marseilles, was deposited in the warehouse for shipment. While there, a cat, ignorant of what the case contained, got into in No sooucr had it done so, than the reptiles spran at it with the rapidity of an narrow, and squeezed it to death in their immense coils. They then relaxed their hold, and commenced the process of swallowing. The male serpent seized the dead cat by ncad end, the lemale swallowed the tail end. It is well known that when serpents take into their mouth a substauce of a certain size, the conformation of the teeth and jaws in such that they cannot let go their hold. In the prcscut case both snakes were brought face to face, the pro cess of deglutition was arrested, and it be came doubtful how the matter would end. At length tho famalc snake mado a des perate effort to swallow tho other, aud in doing so was choked. In coroboratioa of tho above facts, the animals have been preserved in rpirits of wine. The direc tors of the Zoological Gardeus of Marseil les are goiug to bring an action against tho Eessagerics company for the loss of the scrpcuts, whilst the owner of tho cat demands that tho skin at least should be given up to him as a matter of curiosity.

' To the Voters of Pennsylvania : Within' sixty days you are to decide at the polls up on the principles and general policy tha. arc to control the administration of nublin affairs for tho next four years. On tho result hangs the grave questions of tha" peace and good order of society, the pro sperity of the industrial interests, the development of the resources of the coun try, tho integrity of the Union, aud tho guarantees of liberty. in the outcst, the party that for four" years parlayzed the arm of industry by iuauiug it wun a burden of twenty-fiver hundred millions of debt, involved tho. country in civil war, and threatened th destruction of the Union and the over throw of liberty, solicits'vour suffra7es declaring that it has no principles to ad vocate or measures to support, and callar upon its followers everywhere to defend nothing. With nothing in its history for years worthy to be defended, it is wis dom not to make the attempt; for it has manacled the freedom of the press, crush ed out liberty of speech and brutalized: me public conscience in fifteen States. It ostracised every man who had the cour age to declare human bondage a sin against God and a flagrant violation oi the spirit and genius of the republic. Ifc- waged a cruel war against tho pioneer set tlers of Territories and covered tho prai ries of Kansas with murdered heroes, bte- cause mey preierred lrcedom to slavery.

Defeated in its efforts to elect a President of it3 choice it appealed to arni3 to nullify the decision of the ballot-box. In tho struggle it laid a million of brave men in untimely graves, shrouded the nation in mourning, .and flooded it with tears. Such are the ghastly testimonials of what the Democracy has done in years past. Np thanks to that party that to-day wo. have a country to love or a Constiution to revere. It did all in its power to destroy both. J And now it again cocks power, through, discord and civil strife. For four years. ' during the height of the nation's peril1, the only hope of the party for success was in disaster to our arms. Henco it rejoiced at every Union defeat, and mourned over every Union victory.
