Orange Judd, the veteran editor f the Amerioan Agriculturist, writes be following letter to the New York 'ribune : !o the Editor of the Tribune : Sin-The aooount in Saturday'a 'ribune of its now clock, with the ppearanoe of a false story that just ow wet my eye for the hundredth or aousandth time, leads me to send ou a t[uO ace unt of an incident in ,y business experience, of groat in. frest to me and probably usefully uggoestive to others. The old Tri une clock was an important factor in ho transaction., Some twenty years ago, having just i..cooded from the editorial chair to ia proprietorship of the American .griculturist, I decided tW aacertain y trial whether advertising would ot do as well for a good thing as for utent wediciuos and other humbugs. hough having a small working capi- t il, I resolved to do what was thon a tber largo thing, viz : to- take forty nes under "Special Notiues," all in ne advertisenieut. .Being unex, .etedly delayed, I reached t .e 'ribune oilico at 3 p. in., with the ad. ertisewent biall to write, while an ngagemaent in the country required ie to take the four o'clock boat frti ulton-slip. Sceuring forty lines paue at the head of the first column, s ent to a little desk on the southwest de of the oflice, over which hadr rood the old clock for many yoars. intended to write r..pidly a variety 14 f mattei during thirty minutes, and i the next twenty minutes pick out iae strong points and condense to the )rty lilies. Keeping my ego on the look occasionally, I wrote on "letter. aeks" furnished at the desk, and abted them1 together until Iha urteet or more of copy to condense rom. I turned to the clerk and skod if I could have a line or two iuro than forty. ''Yes," he - maid, on have the first place ; tal e all the pace vou want " chin,1;-o to utauo thei City 11.11 clock, it pointed j ten iuinutes of four. Tle old lock bad stopped at twenty minutes ast three, unnoticed by we. I at iupted to d~iaw the pencil through )me portious of the manusoript, and idespair threw the whole at the Lerk with an order to insert it, and in for the boat, to save a nino mile ight wa.k. The matter troubled me all night, s an over-basty thing, and I feared J bee th '1'iibuno aced the probable ill. Starting before daylight the i ext morning, 1 bought the first copy j i the hands of a newsboy, ant; count d 196 lines, costing $24 50 at that me, when ordinary advertisements ere eight cents and specials twelve d a half cents a line-a terrible ose for a literary man, now in ther usiness and with a -small capital. Fastening to the Tribune office I aid the bill, and slowly and sadly cut down to my second-story otlioe, lly re.olved to ot more deli berate in the future. 1'he result. The bold advertise. I ient, conspicuously inserted, at. racted the atteution of the multitude ningn in on the morning traing. )ver 100 dropped in and subscribed a their way to business ; ethers sent u messongers, and others called on heir way to a noon loub. At 8 p. i. [ had recived 226 subscribers om that one advertisement, anid more camne next day by mail. I re eated the dose in the l'ribune and : ther papers. This experience taught ic that if I winted to move a crowd dith a big rock I would hurl it at hem, and riot throw it out in bits of cobble oir sand. From that day to his I have noer been afraid to ad. 'mi time largely and boldlhy-the only imit being the time I could devote o~ prprn good, truthful adver iseents, and to seleoting good mue iuius.-theo latter a work of no little bilicult.y. MIy succoss in business ins beenm ab~undauntly satisfacto y to 13self, and, 1 trust, to my patrons lso.

Glycerine Thermometer. Tho glycerine thermometer is a recent invention brought to notie by M. Jaksoh, of Bohemia, and is -uito a novelty in it4 way. In its 3o struotion, an ounce bottle is ;wo-thirds filled with glycoerine of tny desired color, and the bottle placed in a frozicg mixture of sal aammoniao, saltpetre, and water, so is to cool the liquid to thirt3.wo degrees Fahrenheit. A glass tube twolve to fifteen inches long, is pass. ad through a good fitting cork, so as to dip nearly an mob into the gly. 3orine. The cork is inserted in the bottle and rendered air-fight with caling wax, or a coment of varnish md chalk, and the thermou'otor is ,hen ready to be graduated. On userting the cork, the liquid rises i the tube a few inuhes. 'he but. to is now placed in melting ice, nanl ho lo- of the liquid marked thirty. wo degrees, if the scale is to be ?ahreuhojt,'s.

The Bludgeon and the Press, Last night, a little after 8 o'clock, a Mr. John A. Mot oso, of the News ,ud Courier staff, was walking dowrn 3road street, he was waylaid and as aulted by Bowen's champion jury nan, W. II. Abrens, who was kulking in the dark alley which eparates the store of Messrs. John . aul & Co., from lrunning's bar oom. As soon as Mr. Moroso had mased, this cowardly footpad, taking dvantage of the darkness, rushed out, and with a stiek of some kind (ealt him several blows. Mr. Moroso irew his revolver to defend himself, when Ahrens incontinently fled ,hrough Brunning's bar-room, naking his exit by the baek door, mnd so suceeedd in escaping the >unlishmenlt which ho so richly do erved.

Such licentious and violent demonstrations, long continu ed, are the sure preocursors of anarchy and military rule, or rather of both, the one sucoecodiog the other.
