COXrCSSIOM OF A THIEF. Sly father had been dead a month, arbea one morning;, Mr. MsitlsLd, .nr family lsjer, one of njr.faiher's jldest friends, ealikd on me. ".Mr. Unarles," ne said, after we jad shaken hands, "we have arrang ;d roar father's affairs, and - found a purchaser for the estate, but-r-" . ; "Are ai! the outlaying debts paid a full:" 1 interrupted qnicm. "Ther are, bat." continued oar iiod friend, in a troubled roice, "1 tiere to say tnere is bar dly soy- amg left for you and your sister; carcely tbotfaand-douars." "Ab," he went on, "ifToa had aly followed my adrice! There a ere among your father's debts tore than one that could honestly tare been eat down by one-halt i'oar father erer had an open hand tud a frenerous heart, sir." "1 regret nothing that has been Jone, Mr. Maitland, and bare bat oe more question to ask; when ean I hare the thousand dollars." "To-morrow if yoa wisn it." A few days later my sister Erame me and 1 bade adieu to oar once jappy home, oars, alas! no longer and departed for Xew York. I a fpite of my efforts to bear op against tbe sodden adversities that tad fallen upon aa. the blow oearlf over whelmed me at first. I did not bink so much of myself; a man can always make bis way in this world eritb energy and a strong will, bat I as troubled for my dear sister, flow aboold I find means for provid ing for this fragile, delicate girl of -iitieo, all tbe comfort and luxuries b bad hitherto enjoyed? When this terrible problem first presented itself to me, I fell a prey, for jost one moment, to otter discouragement and despair. Bat those of my raes are proud and strong of will, and I men ially resolved that I would fight the oule of life so bravely that victory mast at last crown my efforts. Arrived in New York, we took a inodest apartment, and furnished it ith as much comfort as oor sleoder resources would allow. : I made oat a list of all my father's former friends, resolved to apply to them one after another ontil I had obtained employ ment. Day after day aad week after week I solicited, hoped sod waited. Promises without number, expres--ions of interest in myself aad my sister snd regret for oor bereavement were lavished npoa me. Bat that was aJL It was tbe old story so well known to ali those whose hard doom condemns them to solicit aid or eaccor froca their fellows promises first, then oblivion. We had now been three months in New York, when one morning I fouod that only five dollars remained ia my parse Here then was the end of all my dreams. . Bat bow to face the cruel reality! Tbe winter was approach ing, my sister a pale lace was grow ing paler day by day, and a hacking cough began to harass her. Another fortoignt passed, daring wbicn I Had been obliged to part with my watrh and chain, aad even with some arti cles of clothing, to procure tbe bare necessaries ot ul. iiat worst i all, I was at length forced to acquaint Emmclioe ot oar terrible position. Tho poor child tried to comfort me with tender caresses aad hopeful wordy, bat the words died away on ber quivering lips and gars place to bitter sob. Aad I coo Id do aotji 10 g. Nothing?. Ab, yea! one last hope remained to Be. Some dars previously 1 bad written to Js!r.3f ait- land, teiiiog bun or my desperate condition, aad reMoe-sunr kiss to rive me some ie tiers of iatradoctioa io tbe v 1 ore law emcee, aad taat very morning baa received an a swer ia tba shape of a large, eficia looking letter, bearing tba addr to Boa. Jar. Carietoa, aa eaiaent met ber of tbe judicial beach. Taking; op my bat. I straightway bora tba lettsr to iu destiaatioa, and, having read it, tba jadga said to me kisaij over bis gold-nnVmed spectacles : "In a few days yoa shall bear from ESTABLISHED, 18 PA., WEDNESDAY, me, I think I shall have good news for you." . On the third Monday after this in terview l bad persuaded my sister to take a walk with me. Daring oar promeoada we happened to pass a restaarant in tbo ; neighborhood, whence a waiter had just issued forth, bearing; a luncheon-trsy on which, among other tempting viands, was a dainty, roast chicken. My poor sister involuntarily fixed such a longing bangrT look on the food as it passed before ber that it almost broke my heart. On oar retarn borne I found a letter from Judge Carleton awaiting me. .Apoloriziog for the irregular form of bis invitation, he said he should be happy to see me ss a guest at dinner on the same eveo- As the sertant announced me. Judge Carietoa came toward me, and, taking me kindly by the hand introduced me to bis wife and daugh ter. All were no kind and cordial to me that in a few moments I felt quite at home. Tbo dinner was a brilliaut one. I was eacaged in an animated conversation with a charming and "try witty ladr beside whom 1 was seated, wbeo suddenly all my gayety nea irora me. I bad just perceived a pleodid rors-fwl that a domestic bad placed theraj. Tbe scene of the morning and tha hungry look in my sister's eves rose op before me. and my heart was wrung by the remem brance. Tbe next instant a portion of the fowl was! placed before me. in the meantime! tbe lady beside me, finding I had suddenly become taci turn and distant! gare her attention to my next neighbor, and left me to my devices and .the satisfaction of my greedy appefte. I made such good use of the liberty thos sccorded to me that in a fcw moments eery trace of food on Iny plate bad disap peared, ihnner? was nearly over wnen tne conversation turned on a lawcnit that my host had gained for one of his clients; "Well" said the judge, laughing, "the case is one of my best, I'll al low ; but my client deserves a little mentioa too. Just look at the hand some present he baa sent me; and he drew from his foger a magnificent diamond ring, and handed it for in Fpection to tbe lady who sal next to him.' In tbe midst of the expressions of delight and admiration, tbe jewel was handed from one guest to anoth er ronad the table, and Mrs. Carietoa bad just risen, and was proceeding to pass into the drawing-room, when ber husband exclaimed, -My dear, bare yoa my ring?" " "No, indeed ; Mrs. M. returned it to yoa a few minutes since." "Bless me! " Then where can it be ?" he said, shaking out bis napkin. and feeling ia I1 bis pockets, one sr tertbeotber. -No one stirred from the table, and for some minutes the room was filled with a confused ham of voices and the jingliog of knives and forks, china and glass, brought into violent collision by tbe excited guests in their search after tbe miss ing jewel Bat the search wa all ia vain ; the ring had actually disap peared. "I see how it is," said the judge, jf tinlji ; "that ring must be some wicked fairy who has maliciously bidden herself away in the pocket of one of our number. Now I am go ing to make a proposal, if you will and which you would utterly reject if it came from any other quarter; bat which yoa will accede to, coming from an eccentric individual like me." "Explain! explain!" cried all tbe guests in chorus. I propose then," continued our host, "that before we leave this roo.ii we shall proceed to search each other, the ladies on this tide, and we gentlemen yonder. Let ail who object hold np their hands. At tbe word "search" all tbe blood in my veins rushed back to my heart,' and a cold sweat broke out on ur forehead and trickled down my face, which I fell bad become asby pale. I stood there apart, with a rash of sound in my ears, a mist before my eyes, and swaying to and fro like a man drank with wine. And through it all 1 could hear the laaghing voice of my host counting tbe rotes in fa vor ot my proposal. Suddenly he confronted me, and said, in a pecu liar time and with A sio-nifirant glance at my arms, which were tight- ly folded on my breast: "And you, sir, uo not approve ot my suggestion ?" I do net, air," I replied with oat ward firm Des, but with a face paler than ever. A silence aa of death suc ceeded these words and every eye in the room was turned in my direc tion. . 1 beg your pardon lor this foolish joke," aaid tbe judge, after a pause. in a tone 1 sbail never forget. "I would rather bo loser of ten thousand dollars thaa wound the feelings of a guest under my roof." and, moving toward the door, be added, lightly, Gentlemen tbe coffee will be rained if we delay here lange-." Just as bo was passing through tbe open door, I advanced toward bim. I owe yon an explanation, Mr. ; Carleton," I said ; "you will bear me? Pray do not refuse me," I added, seeing bim turn coldly away. He ftooU auu iur a moment, and then, turning towards me, bo said, brusquely, but without looking at me Yerv well, come," and be led tbe way to bin study. Tbe door was hardly closed be hind aa when shouts of laogbter were beard from tbo drawing room. aad before I bad time to otter a word. Mrs. Carietoa burs, into tbo room, holding tbo missing ring ia tbe palm of bar band. There is your ring." she said. handing it to her bosbaad ; a ee-vant has joat found it. "Where?" summered Mr. Carie toa with a look of stupefied amaze ment. . ; . ' ; "Just in yoor plate,'' she answered. laughing merrily. . ery well, Aaaie, leave u for an iastaat, aad we will join yoa ia tbe drawing room." At tbo door closed babiad bis wife, Mr. CarWtoa came op to mo and seized sm by both hands.

"AH that glitters is not gold," aad what appears as golden batter is not in every case that luctous article. When Solomon lifted up his voice, and said the'e was nothing new un der the sun. be showed that wise be was. be waa aot versed ia tbe tricks of tbe butter trade. As far aa history extends this produce of the a m nr at . cow was known. lor rainer a.ora- hare, according to Biblical history, set "butter and milk" oeioro tne three miraculous guests wbo vis ited bim while he soioarned on tbe plains of Mamre by the brook of Heb ron in Palestine, mat was aoou. 4.000 rears ago. and from that time down has been frequently mentioned as an esteemed article of diet So much so that one of the punishments inflicted upon tbe wicked is, to nse tbe words of Jophar in the time of Job, that "be" (the wicked) "shall not see" tbe brooks of honey and butter. In fact, from time immem orial has it been used by all nations as an article of food. It supplies a great natural want of man for fatty material to supply tbo n at oral wear of tbe body. Different nations have their wants in this direction supplied in characteristic ways. The Rus sian peasant diets oa tallow candles, the African bathes and saturates his skin in rancid oil, tbe Arab drinks his cup of rancid melted butter, and the sailor and backwoodsman swal low their bonne bouchet of fat salt pork with a gusto. But among civi lized nations the use of tbo finest grades of butter is universal, and tbe man wbo does not use it on nis bread or in other forms is a rare ex ception to the general rale. WHERE IS BCTTEB THt MADE or ratber wbere ooes tne suppiy come from ihst appears upon tbe tables iu our city? It requires an immense amount, and is drawn from the immediate neighborhood of the cu in nart. and remote points for tbe-great bulk. It is calculated that in ibe whole United Slates there are about twelve and a half pounds con sumed on an average by every per son included in its popalstion. ibe orodact increased in a faster ratio than the population during the last tbree decades, for while it was 313,- 345.30C pounds in 1350. in I860 it amounted to 453.680.327 pounds. and in 1S70 it was estimated at 650,- 000,000. Philadelphia needs for her consumption alone about 250,000 to 275.000 pounds per week. Macn ol it, as above stated, is made ia the neighboring coumiee of Delaware and Montgomery and Chester and others But the great bulk of the tub and firkin butter comes from Bradford county, -jw lork wbere tbere are extend've dairy farms, and from Illi nois and Iowa. 1 torn tbeae two lat ter States the finest grades of packed batter are brought, much of which is hardly inferior to tbe best "pound batter" from tbe adjoining counties. A few years ago "Goshen Butter" from Orange county. New York, was one of the best known brands in tbe market, but for a few years tbe dairies in that county have sent all their milk to tbe city of New York. HOW IT IB MADS. In olden times, when Abraham set tbe butter before bis mysterious guests and for ceo tunes after, tbe manner of making butter waa to put tbe cream ia a leather bottle, sucb as was used fur carrying wine or wa ter, and by a process of shaking il up until the buttery particles formeu. Tben tbe modern process of churning in wooden churns became general and the process of making it was one that tended to give strong arms and a fall expansion of tbe cbest to the sturdy country girL Up to within a very few years tbe old upright churn was universally used, with iu plain up-aod-dowa dasher, tbe weight sometimes counterbalanced by a spring above, to which it waa attach ed by a cord. But although in tbe interior, and even ia the thicaly set tled part of the country, these old fashioned churns are used yet. Yan kee ingenuity has bent itself to tbe task of making labor-saving churns that bring tbe butter from tbe cream wiib lean labor aad in quicker time than ever. Bat while Yankee inge nuity has thus lessened the butter- maker's labor, French science has al so been at work and produced A!l AXTTnCIAL BCTTZR. itself Tbe discovery arose oat of some chemical experimeau that were, at tbo insuace of the French Government, made by M. Hippolyte Mego with a view to Gad some arti cle to be used as butter, to have the same general qualities, and at the same time to be cheaper in price aad capable of being kept without spoil ing. These experimeau were eon ducted at tbe Government farm at Yincennea. By placing several milch cows on a strict diet of non-fat-prod ad Qg food be found that, al though tbe animals decreased inj weight aad gave leas milk the milk itself always contained batter. From this M. Mege was coavinced that the fatty particles of tbo milk from which the butter was obtained was a direct contribotion from the fat of the ani mal itself, which being absorbed and carried into circulation, waa deprived of iu stesrine by natural eombostioo in tbo lungs and tbea furnished as oiec margarine to tbo mammary glands, and tbere by eoauct with tbo butyric . acid developed in them changed to hotter. Reasoning oj ibis bo waa induced to try by experi aaont tbo deductions of reason and procuring some eow'a fat aad beef aoet bo succeeded, by the oao of a small quantity ot milk ia addition, in making a good sample of batter. HOW ARTIFICIAL BCTTES U MAPS. The first step ia making it is to separata the fat from the tissaea. Te do tbia it is aoeeaaary to bo ex tremely careful not to allow tbo tem pcrMsre to exceed 120 F-. akboogb 1033 iaaoficieot. Wbea melted at a higher temperatoro tbo fat acquires a clLng-r-eabs taste that cannot bo re moved by any proceoe.

Tbo latter opera-j WHOLE NO. 1.M7. tion occupies about three hoars and is done in large kettles having hol low sides, in which condensed steam gives a temperature of 120 J. From these large kettles it Is ran off into smaller ones and kept at the same temperatoro until tbe floating par ticles of tissue are deposited. It is then run off into other vessels and al lowed to cool at about 80 tempera ture. After it has become tolerably firm it ia moulded into small cakes, wrapped in doth and subjected to an immense pressure (sometimes over 200 tons) which presses out tbe oleo margarine and leaves the stearine. Tbe former is then free from any dis agreeable taste or odor and c&o be and is ased for culinary purposes and ia called cooking grease. It is composed of tbe tame elemenu as batter and is the same substance that passing iato tbe mammary glands of tbe cow is by tbeir action converted into batter. To do tbia artificially a small potion of pure milk or cream is added, and then bv working ii to gether genuine butter is formed Tbe cooking grease is a very valua ble addition to tbe cuisine, and is es pecially so for using oa trip either at sea or on land, as it keeps perfectlv clear and sweet for a long time In a report made by M. Felix Bendee to tbe Board of Health of the Depart- ment of tbe Seme, he nave, after peaking in high terms of tbe first product : "Tbo second, p-xwes-aed of properties wbicb allow of iu close comparison with butter in a chemic al point of view ta regards its uses may Uke tbe place of the latter in many instances; and in con sequence of tbe small expense at which it can be made it has been put in competition with milk butter, which will lower necessarily the price of tbe letter to the benefit of the consumer, render tbe con sumption of it less considerable and allow the breeders to devou a much creater quantity of milk to the rais ing of calves, a great advantage to their industry." INTRODUCTION INTO THIS COCNTBT. In 1373, shortlr after M. Mege made his discovery, in the course of bis researches ho obuined a patent in France, and then seeing what an immense field lay before him io the great territory of the United Sutes, he started to get a patent in this country. But tbere was one ahead of him, a party from Alsatia, by the name of Paraps who, leaning through the report of tbe method of making artificial butter, applied for a patent as bis own discovery, and ob tained it M. Mege, however ly the presenution of proof of Lis prior dis-, eovery, and as tbe fact that Parap. had obtained bis knowledge from current publications in France, sue ceeded in oasting tbe latter and hav ing bis patent annulled, and got one himself. He immediately started a large company, called the United Sutes Dairy Company, assigned tbe patent to them. This compear ea- ublisbed others in New lork and NewJersey and also in this Stale. Tbe factory in New York is on a largo scale, having a capacity of ren dering 500,000 pounds of caul fat per week. This produces 100 barrels of tbe oleo-marganne.of which the but ter is made, ten bogrbeada of stear ine and ten of Uflow. Everything is utilized, and even tbo water is strained before being run off, and tbe refuse is sold to the snap makers. Tbere are tbree stesm-cbarna, each of the capadty of 200 pounds of the oleo-margarine. About eight qnarts of milk are added to each of the charns, and after being thoroughly worked, is laid out on large fiat trays. inspected, recburned until tbe milk is all worked out, and tben packed in firkins for the wholesale trade, or stamped ia one pound and half pound lump. It is then ready for the mar ket, and is of a clear, light yellow color, and ia Uste and smell not to be distinguished from good cream batter, but.is said by the dealers not to keep, but soon gets rancid. About 5,000 pounds per day are "old from the factory in New York, at a price ranging from 20 to 25 cents. Tbe branch of this estsblisbment is situated in West Philadelphia near tbe Pennsylvania Railroad depot Tbey now make the hotter ready for the market, although for some time after iu establishment they only made the cooking grease which re quired churning with milk to produce toemarkeuble batter. (7) Tbere is no doubt that it appears on many a table, and it is said that not one in a hundred can tell tbe difference be tweeo it and the best pound batter that is made in the country. Iu ef fect is already teen in the td action in tbe price of batter. The exports from this city for the past month of March aggregated about 71,000 pounds. Although extensively used in the hotels and boarding-bouses, aod sold by a great many provision dealers, none of them like to ac knowledge it, as people are not yet educated op to Ukiog it on iu own merits.

At a meeting held at Judges' Hall in Sep tember, 1376, in tbe Ceatenniel grounds, there were very strong speeches made against iu manufact ure, and a committee was appointed by the national convention to Uke steps torn emeriaKze Congress to pass a law to compel the man-aiaetarors of it not to stop making it, bat to seii it for what it was. By this means it would enable people to make their own selection, and although it might at first retard iu introdactioB, yet iu advocates say that it would oory ia the end make iu iatrodoctioa the more sore, as tbe deakra could sot tbea palm off the rancid better as the real botteriot.
