ADULTERATED LIQUORS.
Dr. Lowls Feuchtwanger in a notice to
liquor dealers in the Si. Louis Leader,
aJvor isitig his Flavorings says:
"Tl it Flavorings ar« put up in pack
ages of 6, 10, and 40 ga'lons, and re
quire but tho additions of pure spirit,
either 1st or 4th proof, and liquors such
as cognac., either dark or pale Holland
and English Gin, Jamaica and St. Croix
Rum, Monongahela, Bourbon. Irish and
Scotch Whisky, Apple, Peach, Cherry
and Raspberry Brandy, Port and Ma
dcira Wines will be insUuuly produced.
It requires no skill, but an addition of a
good spirit, say .50 gallons to one gallon
of the respective flavoring.
"The best cognue oil, green, yellow
and white, warranted genuine, as low
as any other importer in the Uniied
States.
"Raw whisky may by Dr. F.'s age
and body preparation be made smooth
with but a trilling cost."
This is as good a temperance lecture
as wo have semi for years. Think of
pa} ing si dollars for a gallon of slow
puis^M under the name of cogniao, put
up in a bottle with French labels! The
in induction of arscnie in:o Ohio whisky
has become so common that the legisla
ture of Ohio lias passed a law inflicting
a severe penalty on the makers of julul
terated liquors. "Whisky has become a
popular drink among drinkers, for its
sttppos purity.
We are prohibiiionists so far as the
manufacture, sale and use of adulterated
liquors are concerned. Such beverages
are as injurious to health and perilous to
life as diseased flesh and decayed fish,
and we should like to see them proscrib
ed by public sentiment and legal enact
meut.
Legislation for th« protection of the
public against the evils of intemperance,
would in our judgment be vastly more
ellectual if directed against the manu
facture and sale of the impure beverages
than in attempting to pronibit, tho use of
the genuine articles. We do not be
lieve that suppression is practicable, as
in all ages and countries stimulating
drinks have been used so they will con
tinue to be, and the best that can be done
is to prevent abuses and to protect the
public against impositions. Intemper
ance is the leas, where pure liquors are
consumed. It is tho inipuro that chief
ly possess the property, that does the
mischief, tho influence that steals away
the senses, when individuals
and society
are injured. Iu wine countries where
real wine and pure brandy made from
the grape are only used, inebriation and
crime resulting from it arc rare. In
this country before adulteration was
commencod, people drank ardent spirits
freely and lived to a good old age not
wi I a anding, aud drinkers were ac
counted as moral as those who abstain
ed, if there were any such persons two
or, three generations ago.
If the evil of intemperance it not
wholly caused by adulterated liquors it
is enormously aggravated by them.—
The practice of adulteration and medi
cation has become so general that is now
almost impossible to obtain pureanicles
in the market. This practice ought to
be entirely broken up by public opinion
backed up by law with penalties suitable
to tho olience.
We have inspectors of beef, pork, fish
and other articles of consumption, and
laws to punish those who for gain attempt
to^palm oii'npon purchasers and consu
mers dhmftged and deleteriouK articles
of food. Why not have inspectors of
spiritous liquors and laws with penalties
to punish those who from sinister mo
tives put into the market damaged or
adulterated articles of drink It is as
much a fraud and crime to do one as the
other, and why should not the offenders
in both cases be treated alike
Wc veuly believe that to suppress
tho manufacture and sjtle of adulterated
liquors would greatly advance the cau e
of temperance and good morals, and
that the public would receive more beue
fit from it than from all the attempt that
have been or can bs made to prohibit
tho manuficturc, sale and use of spirit
ous l'quors. There is a wide difference
beiween aiming to suppress and exter
minate adulterated articles, and to pun
ish those who manufacture and vend
them, and in endeavoring to prohibit
the manufacture and sale of pure articles
of this kind, good in themselves aud
bad only whon used improperly or to
excess. Almost everybody uses in some
form moro or less spiritous liquors, and
all desii'e them to be good almost the
entire people therefore can be arrayed
against adulterations, while there must
be n great majority of them •i^ain&t pro
hfbPn£ pure «t*4 genuine article*.

terms of the highest eulogy, and draw
ing immense crowds wherever it appears.
Accompanying NIXON & KEMP'S estab
lishment is the great musical steam in-:
strumont, called tho "Calliope." The1
following notice of this attractive nov
elty, appeared in the Chicago Time's the
day after tho circus left that city:
"THE CALMOPK.—The latest, and in
some respects the greatest, musical
novelty of the age, the Calliope, arrived
in this city yesterday, and filled the
streets, alleys, vacant lots, and all other
placea accessible to sound, with its five
hundred horse power music. A larger
audience was attracted than ever assem
bled to hear Parodi, La Grange, or any
other musical celebrity of tho humnn
species aud what was more, such was
the potent spell of its high-pressure
no.es that the Calliope, like Orpheus'
lyre, drew after it men, boys, dogs, don
keys and vehicles of all descriptions,
wherever it went.
This instrument (or engine, as the
case may be.) consists simply of a num
ber of steam whistles, precisely like
those in use on 1 comr.ivos but of dif
ferent sizes, and tho no'es of all care
fully graduated according to the musical
scale. The steam, which is generated
in a boiler on a separate vehicle behind,
is conducted to them by pipes, and con
trolled by s op3 upon a keyboard, like
ti at of the organ or pianoforte. Tne
number of whistle* is forty-four (em
bracing three octaves with the necessary
flats and-flff&rps) and the tone of each
may be graduated by a contrivance by
which it is brought nearer or removed
from the orifice through which the jet
of steam escapes, so that music of al»
most any quality, and certainly in any
quanti y, in iy be exeou ed upon this
mighty instrument. The music is aw
fully powerful, and nearly beats the
music of the spheres" in every quali'y
except sweetness. It yells, howls,
screeches, and in fact is a perfect baby
ivaker. It may be heard, it is said, at
a distance of fifteen miles, and one man
whose auricular organs were saluted by
it at about that distance, declares that
he supposed it to be Gabriel blowing
tho last trumpet. Another who was on
a railroad train, thought that the bridge
was breaking down, and engine, cars,
and all, were rushing into "one eternal
smash." To us, the first tune which
wo heard performed on the Calliope
sounded mere like the internal din which
every morning at seven o'clock set etch
es in the oars of Chicago from innumer
aole and vociferously blown steam
whistles, than anything el«e ire now
think of. Tho Calliope is certainly a
screamer.
How Lager-Be or is Made.
We enter the brewery, and the first
object that greets our eye is an exten
sive malt boiler. This boiler is made
of sheaJi copper, and is capable of hold
ing 22 barrels, or 694 gallons. The
malt is, after being gtound, pouted in
to this kettle and boiled four hours
then it is dipped out and goes to the
malt-mash, where it undergoes a slight
manipulation. It is then returned to
the kettle aud is boiled again, then sent
back to the pit for another stirring up.
This operation is repeated three several
times, when it is placed in the boilur
for the fourth and last time, on which
occasion the hops are added. Af.er
this fourth boiling, the liquid is drawn
off and placed in the cooling-box or
shoal-pit.
We now go to the cellar, which has a
leyel entrance from tho north side of the
brewery. Alter penetrating a conside
rable distance into the solid earth, we
descend a flight of steps, some 17 feet,
and enter the main cellar. On each side
are piled up huge hogsheads, each hold
ing 15 barrels, to the height of 15 fe»t.
These arc filled with the generous and 4k' W.
cooling liquid called Lag- Beer. We Woodward.
now proceed to the fur herest extent of ..
this underground vault, and are 188 feet
from the entrance, and upwards of 5U „,
feet be'ow the surface, and protected by

Mrs. Dickson's New Pettlooat.
A meek, quiet looking person, calling
himself John Dickson, was detected on
Friday n the very act of stealing a large
roll of red flanuel from the door of a
dry good store in Eighth street. He
did not deny the fact, but attempted to
palliate his offence by the following ad
dross to the Mayor:
"Sir, I confess that I did take the
flannin but when you hear why I took
it, you will say that I am an unfortunate
man, and ought to be pitied. My wife
says to me yesterday morning:
'John I've got a two dollar note,
Bank of Harrisburg (says she I made
it by washing and ironing, and I want
you to go and buy mo eight yards ot
flannin—red flannin (saysshe)—to make
me two petticoats, for tho Spring is back
ward (says she,) and the weather keeps
cool, and I haven't a rag that's fit to
wear. And mind yoa don't lose the
money nor go near any grog shop (says
she,) for you know your weakness and
don't you get into conversation with any
other loafers as you are going along on
this errand."
"So I took the money—the two dollar
note (I did)—and iot out, and went
three squares around to keep clear of a
groggery that's in tho upper end of our
street and that's the way I missed it
for in the t'other street I met Joe Hin
son. Says he— I „i

"Says I—'To get eight yardsofaftmr*

petticoats.'
"Says he—'Dock the old woman half

won't mind having a scant pattern.'
"Well, I thought half a yard of flan
nin wouldent make much difference, so
in we went to the hotel, changed tho
noie, drank a glass apiece, and that puts
us in the notion of
i u
e n 1
five cents left out of the two dollars.—
Well what could I do then I ax any
reasonable man what could I do 1
couldn't go home without the flannin
and I couldn't buy it without the mo
ney. So I hooked a bolt of it, (I did)
that's a tact, and I'm not ashamed to
acknowledge it, for nothing else could
be done and if I hadn't been nabbed

Cons AND Hoos.—From carefully I
conducted experiments by different per-
•ons, it has been ascertained that one
bushel of corn will make a little over
1G£ pounds of pork—gross. Taking
this resuk as a basis, the following de
ductions are made whioh ull our farmers
would do to lay by for convenient re
ference. That.
When corn costs 12^c per bushel,
pork cost l£c per pound.
When corn costs 17e, per bushel,
pork costs 2c per pound
When corn costs 26c per bushel, pork
costs 3c per pound.
When corn costs 33c per bushel, pork
costs4c per pound.
When corn costs 63c per bushel, pork
costs 6c per pound.
The following statements show what
W hen pork sells for 4c per pound, it
brings 33c per pushel in corn.
When pork sells for 5c per pound, it
brings 45c per bushel in corn.
When pork soils for 6c per pound, it
brings 5JC per bushel iu corn.

An English Opinion of the U. S- St*aaa
Frigate Niagara.
The steam frigate Niagara was
by the United States, to assist
Britaiu in laying down the Submarine
Telegraph Cable, between Europe aiti
America. The London Times gives all
interesting description of her, aud a f#,
vorable one.
*Tho Niagara is ona of twelve stoani
frigates which, a short time siuce. Con
gress ordered to be built, by way of j|
counterbalance to the enormous increaafti
of the Euglish and French marine. Thjf
construction of the Niagara was intrujtjr*
ed by acclamation to Mr. Steers, tl#
builder of the celebrated clipper yaulj§
America. In building hor, ho had iovfr
conflicting purposes to reconcile—til
make her a good gun boat, good seaboa%
goed sailer and good stcamor. The rJ*
suit is the Niagara—in design a kiud (jf
compromise, and which leaves her this
fastest sailer in the world, one of the
fastest steamers, a fine seaboat, and a
very good man-of-war. Her lengt^
over all is 375 feet, breadth (extremoj^
55 feet 6 inches, depth of hold 32 feei
6 inches, and her burden 5,200 tons, oe
nearly 2,000 tons larger than the Him
alaya. Now she has on board only fjur
small guns—that is, small in compari
son to the armament she is intended U*
carry but when the peacefnl task of
laying tho Atlantic Submarine cable ia
completed, the Niagara will be fully
armed and equipped for war. She will
then carry 12 Dahlgren guns, 11 inoh^
es diameter in the bore, and throwin" 4
solid shot of the enormous weight ol
270 pounds a distance of 7,000 yarde
or four miles. These shells for thes*
guns will weigh 130 pounds, aud the
guns themselves 14 tons. These mon
