The Second 13rAncl) of Council having! ^
chosen to put itiielf in the position of an |(
obstructionist to tho taking out of license ti
by the saloon keepers of the city at the
rc^iilur time, should bo prepared to as- ^
4IUH0 whatever responsibility attaches to g|
their gratuitous position. Those of die
saloon men who nro impatiently waiting J
to receive permission to go on ns hereto- ^

understand that it is the Hecornl Branch K
that stands in their way. That body has

heretofore, but the Second Branch, in ^
spite of the prctwing necessities of
the city for revenue, have chosen ^
to f step in and try to beat down n
the old price. It appars al.?o that ?oiue y
of the members are putting on en air of (j
injured innocence in the matter, on the (|
gronnd that they are being dictated to by
the First Branch. Dr. Logan placed the
hoot on the other leg l:wt night by re- |(
marking very properly that if any body n

this point by Dr. J/Ognn, Mortimer Pol- s
l-ii'k made a telling point to the effect that
despite all the talk in the Second llranch >,
about the inability of the xuloon uien to ^
pay tliu licence heretofore charged, the R
number of saloons had steadily increased, ^
and was now decidedly lar^r limn when Q
the present rate wan fixed threeyearn ago j

in order that thu-e who ore Hiiaiou* to

who it in that in standing in their way. H
Tliey should saddle the responsibility on c
the Second Branch where it belongs. The
First Branch have bten ready all along ^
to grant license on the' usual terms. ^
Those of the saloon men who have been ^
arrested for felling on Monday t|
without license, and who will b? f(
forced ito litigate their cases at j
considerable expense, can appreciate ^
the fact that between what they will lose j
in that way, and wh.it they will lone in j

will much more than overbalance any

The last essential patent by which the e
price of all Sewing Machine* ha* been c
kept at from four to five hundred |*'r h
cent above their cost, expiicd venter '
day, and inasmuch as all o Hurts to get a :l
renewal or cxieniuon 01 anv 01 mew e??ential
feature* of machine building have 1
b*en in vain, the price has suddenly colUpsed,
and machine* that a few weeks
i^o were felling at $70 and $S0 are now
ireely offered at $33 and $10. The patent
(hit expired yesterday wa< the Hatchd<ler
patent on the needle plate, which
rctjuired every Sewing Machine to pay a
royalty of* $il to the combination
unless it was intended for exportation.
It has been a marked peculiarity
of the machine business that while
they were exported to Kitropu anil sold
there at retail for $20 to $40, they were
sold here all the way from $f?"> to $Uo.
The combination has consisted of the
Singer, the Wheeler iS; Wilson, thn Howe,
and the CSrover & Baker companies. According
to a statement made on good authority,
il appears that the cost ol a $70
machine was only about $15. The other
additions of cost tirr classified as follows:

We observe by the Pittsburgh papera of
yesterday that Sewing Machined are now
being pressed on the market, as it were,
in that city at onediulf the obi price.
We presume the price is correspondingly
reduced at the various agencies in this
fity. If not it soon will be. At all
events, no one who want* a machine
need now pay the former exhorbitant
price. In a abort time they will be as
cheap and available to every family in
the land as cooking stoves. The time
was, twenty-live years ago, when cooking
Moves were luxuries, to be indulged in

on Clarksburg, but there was a time only >
u few weeks ago when the Regiftcr did not f
ex pre itself that way. The tiles of that d
paper during the time that tin) Capital ^
bill was under discussion, and especially
after the introduction of the bill providing
for a vote between Martinsburg,
Clarksburg and Charleston, show that
the fcyialtr held Charleston, and no one ?
else, responsible for the kill. Charleston c
was tantalized with having caught a Tar- s

the latter to suspension from rank

the wife of nn absent officer, aud in using
the whole force of his power, as the commanding
officer of the post, to gratify his
resentment against her, cannot bo too
strongly condemned, but after a long
deliberation oil all the circumstances as
shown in the record of the trial, it is
thought his gravo offenses, grave as they
are, do not warrant the sentence of dismissal
and all its consequences upon one
who has lor 20 years borne the reputation
of a brave man and honorable officer, and
has maintained that reputation upon the
battle fields of the rebellion and in contests
with the Indiana. The President
has therefore modi lied the sentence, and
it is hoped that Major Keno will appreciate
the clemency thus shown liiui, an
well as the very reprehensible character
of the acts of which he was found guilty.

Lick, provided that all the. societies shar- 0

to cotuc out of the residue set apart to be t
divided equally between the Academy of j-,
Sciences and Pioneers, And had filed 0
their answer consenting to the payment ^
on that hypothesis. The trustees of the y
Lick estate expected the two residuary ?
legateca to acccpt tliat idea and to come jj
to-day into court, so that the whole H
matter could be closed up. * J.oth the v
residuary legatees and societies, however, 0
now refuse to consent that all the money
required for the settlement should come v
out of their purses exclusively. Whether a
the other societies"will now consent to *r
pay the.deduction of 14 per rent, that is,
the amount needed of the specilic ln?queats

intent for the continuous feed motion,
irhich was the moot valuable patent in

rital value. Machines constructed with>ut
the motion have no value in the marcct.
This sewing machine combination
ileared no lefls than $0,000,000 prolit
rom this patent. The four Companies
leretofore named in 1851 entered into an
igreement of mutual protection, by
vhich all patents of any value owned by
itiier of them should become common
property to all; it was also stipulated
hat no machine should he sold hi
ens than the regulation price, which was
placed at six time* the coat of- first manufacture.
They would also license other
companies not in the combination to use
'heir patents, demanding a royalty of
rom $5) to SUOnper machine, according to
:lie number 01 machines made; but always
Btipulatiug that tho price should be
jniform. The arrangement gave the four
companies the absolute control of all sewng-mnchines
manufactured in America.
The invnluableiJatchelder patent has been
iwicc extended, and Inst winter the com|>anies
interested pooled $1,000,000 and
Jinpatched attorneys here to endeavor
to indtico Congress to further ex
lend the patent by legislation. The
novement, however, strange to way,
ifith ho much money behind it, failed.
Ever since great efforts have been made
