A STORY IX FOllt PARTS. BY SIRS. It. B. EDSOS. CHAPTER IV. RS. WALLACE stood, regard mg witn an air or pride two mammoth stone jars, filled to the Driiu avi tn tlie sweetest and gohlenest of fall butter. She was a mar vellous dairy-woman, and though Mrs, Livingston had several personal servants at the house, the Wallaces still lived at the cottage, and had the general super vision ot tlie estate; mat is, tner agricul tural nortion of it. " A shadow fell across the window, and aroused her trorn her pleasant contem plation. ' Looking tip she ' beheld the good-natured face of Asa ?Lo we,1 Miss Livihgston's lad-of-all-work,' looking in at the open window, and regarding her with a quizzical smile; 'Doesn't look fit for the pigs to eat, does it?" saitl Asa, with a tantalizing grin. Mrs. Wallace made aim at his head with the churn-flasher, but he suddenly " ducked," and it went straight into a young colony of cabbage plants that were hardly able to hold up their beads scattering death and devastation in their ranks. ' '"Oh dear me! Whatever will Wil liam say ; His beautiful green Savoys that he thought so much of, too! Asa Lowe, you ought to be ashamed of your- sein" exciaimea inn vexeu woman. "I didn't do it, Mrs. Wallace. You can't sav I did. . If 1 hadn't dodged you might have killed me. What's a cab- basre head compared to mine?" . "Xot much difference I'll confess,"sbe replied, a smile struggling to her face, "They both belong to one genus, but are different species., cimeriug prinu pally in their naoit 01 growtn, ana tne color of their foliage one being red, and the other green." Asa looked up to where the voice pro ceeded from, as he slowly replied: - "I ain't a parasite, any way Miss Annie, growing on trunks of old trees." "That's beciuse you don't know what's nice. It's deligbtl'ul up here, and just see! if you won't dodge I'll throw you this 'lady's sweating" they are most gone, you see." "Throw away, but don't aim at the cabbage bed ! I've suffered enough al ready from 'salt and battery.' Ah, this is nice" catching the apple. .'-Now, Miss Annie; I shall have to trouble you tocoine down. My mistress sent me up hero with express orders for your mother and yourself to come to Lintlenwold to day. She bade me say that stie was at -leisure, and should esteem It a lavor." "Certainly, Asa; tell your mistress we shall be pleased to come;" ana Mrs Wallace hastily set about maJdng prep arations for her visit to the "great hous3," while Annie came down from mm mm I W I 1 II u A VOL.

She had an object hi that,- how ever, as presently appeared. After a little desultory conversation she eame at once to the subject. "Toi prqmjsb ine; ., Mr4.' Wallace, when I first came here, that sometime you would give me the history of my uucle SlrTtaoraas's family. . I have been so busy I have not found opportu nity, at least when I felt like listening. But I am in the tinood to-day, and if you are not needed at home, so that there need be no interruptions, it will please me to bear What Oil know coucerniug them." "There is nothing to hinder that 1 know. ' Mr. Wallace has gone to market with vegetables, and won't be back till uight. Aud Arthur," she added, with a little touch of pride in her tones, "is to be admitted to the bar to-day." A swift glow of pleasure lighted up the haughty face of the fatly of Linden wold. A softer flush stained the exquis ite cheek, but she, did uot forget to vast a qi-lct searching' 'glance "toward the unconscious Annie, who stcod with fol ded arms before ber favorite picture of the Lady Alice. : "I congratulate you," she said in the suayest er voices.- "He fe not yonr oiok son, I believe." "Oh no. , But I couldn't love him any better if he were; but perhaps he may be some day," with a meaning glance at Annie, whose fair cheek instantly suf fused with blushes. "Ah?" Sit was only a little-word, but some how it seemed to contain whole volumes of meaning. -It struek the sensitive heart of Annie "with a dead, heavy chill, and even Mrs. Wallace noted the pecu liar intonation, but she continued : "It is nigh fifteen years ago that Wil liam went to the States on some busi ness connected with tbe farm, for Sir Frederic. It was late in the season, and the autumn storms were unusually se vere that vear. Their sloop was over taken by -terrible" gale oit.the return trip, 'i'hey were just off Eastport, but the height of the gale did not reach them until they were off Garinet Bock Light which perhaps you don't know is inten ded to warn vessels off a very dangerous range of rocks and shoals, which ex tend along the coast for some distance. It was' a terrible nighty I never slept a wink, for I was momently expecting him, and if it had not been for Annie, who was scarce two years old, 1 should have gone to the city, despite the storm. Oh Miss Livingston! you ' can never know in what a fearful agony of sus pense and dread I clasped my child to in v bosom, expecting she was fatherless ! As soon as it was light, Sir Frederic rode into town himself. Ob. the long hours of that dreadful morning! At last 1 could endure It no longer, and as the gale had -somewhat abated, and- the rain almost entirely ceased, I wrapped Annie in a thick shawl, and taking her in my arms, started tor town. I had uot eaten or slept for twenty-four hours, yet I battled with the elements with the strength of a giant. I remember, in a vague sort of way, of seeing men blown along by the wind, occasionally catch ing at a post, or tne corner ot a duuu ing, to take breath, and then, whirling on again. Presently I saw for I was straining my eyes for some glimpse of it Sir Frederic's carriage coming down Germain street. It was a long way off too far to see anything plainly, and the suspense just crazed me. I started on a swift run, and when they first saw me they thought 1 was an escaped lunatic; and I did look wild and haggard enough, expect, uut 1 looked, and saw Wil liam sitting on the back seat with Sir Frederic, aud then well, then I don't remember anvthinir distinctly, until 1 found invself in Lady-Alice's own cham ber, and her sweet face bending over me, and her lovely blue eyes swimming in tears. w imam was cnaung my hands, and he looked just like a ghost himself. They said I had fainted, and perhaps 1 did ; but it was the nrst and last time.'. As soon as I was strong enougti to sit up and look round, l saw a little pale, drenched face lying among tne. pillows ou tne . lounge that very lounge which is stored away among the rubbish in the north gable. The face startled me,- it looked so weird and ghostly ; and I pointed to it and tried to speak, but my lips were so stiff and cold that tney would uot move. "It is only a poor little fellow, Mary, from a vessel which was wrecked on the Murr Ledges, and every soul on board save him lost! I tied a rope round me and made the sailors lower me down, and picked blm off a' broken spar, where he was clinging with the whole of his tinv strength. He could have held out but a few minutes longer. The vessel was reeling' and pitching awfully, and the pilot had as much as he could do to keep of the rocks, but I was determined to save him, and I did! Are you sorry, Mary? His mother was lost, and his father was already dead.- Can you find room for him in your heart r" "As if I could not find room for tbe whole world in my heart, then! And though I was very weak, and had to bold on the wall for support, I made my way to that lounge, and took, the little drenched lace to my bosom, and kissed the little quivering lips, and vowed be fore Heaven that I would be as true a mother to tills little orphan, as I was to my own child. And I think I have kept my vow, and I could not well help it, for in every one of these years he has been growing more Into my heart, until I say, as I did when you first asked me, 1 love mm as it he were mv own." There were tears in the beautiful eyes of the fair lady of Linden wold, and Mrs. Wallace thought she never saw ner look so lovely oeiore. She never saw her look so' again. ' But 1 beg your pardon." Mrs. Wal lace exclaimed.' suddenly recolleetlns herself. "I have been talking of my self, instead of telling you what you aesireu to Know." "There is no pardon needed. I thank you for tellingme Avhat you have. But x nave a uttie curiosity to know about my cousid Clarence, Sir Thomas's youngest sou.. I have , never heard vou speak of him, and I do not find his pic ture among the family portraits, x lind his name, with tbe record ot his birth. in the old family: Bible; and also the record of his death, but with neither time nor place affixed. What was there about it or about him, rather, that there is such a strange silence main tained?" "Well, it was never talked about much at the house, but of course I knew about it. It was the old story of the younger son, and Clarence was very high-spir- lteu, anu tne manliest injustice iretteu and galled him terribly. He brooded over it until in a fit of desperation, he resolved to go to the States; to cut loose from all communication with his family, and alone and unaided, make or mar his own fortunes. "This project he was verv careful not to broach to his father or brother, but he made me his confident. I was a mere child, and he made me take the most solemn oaths that I would not reveal his purpose, and sortie first his father knew oi it, he naa enectea ins escape He was scarcely twenty a brave, fear less,, high-spirited, handsome fellow as one often sees. He was a true Livingston too iou resemble him strangely while Frederic afterward, upon the death of his father, Sir Frederic resembled his mother morA and I always thought Sir Thomas was more fond of hiin for just mat reason. "Well, Sir Thomas was dreadfully angry when he found Clarence had gone,' and I was forced to tell "what I knew of it. I remember now bow fright- eueu was, ana now x soDDea so ttiat x r ii i li r FAMILY PAPER, PAIXESVIIXE, LAKE COUNTY, OHIO, SATURDAY, OCTOBER could not speak intelligibly for a long time- There was no effort made to re call blm for a long while, and nothing whatever was. heard of him. But after a time, carefully worded advertisements were sent to the leading American pa pers, but without eliciting any reply. Porbably they never reached him. And Sir Thomas died, with the fate of his youngest born shrouded in mystery. It was the thought of his closing life; but the longing remained unsatisfied. Some five years after his death Sir Frederic received a letter from hi3 brother. I never saw the letter, and do not know what became of it, but I know that Sir Frederic answered it, begging him to come back, and offering to share the fortune with him if he would come. But he never cams. About a year after,a paper marked at a certair death was sent to him. Then it was given out that Clarence Livingston had died; in the States. But, it was not until after Sir Frederic's death that I knew he had borne another name in tbe home of his adoption ; what it was I never knew, Olive Livingston sat awhile in a rev erie, and then asked, abruptly : "Was he ever married ?" "No. That is, I don't think he was. There was never anything sail I about it. But I declare! it's near four o'clock, and I haven't thought of them blessed 'pigs to-day, till this minute; so, if you'll ex cuse me, I'll go home now." If you thinkof anything elseany time that you want to ask, I shall be happy to tell you what I can about it." "Thank you. You must let Annie run up sometimes. It is lonely here with only the servants, and I have few acquaintances. "She will like to come, I am sure, and yon arc very kind," and Annie smiled, and looked much pleased at the invita tion, and promised thit she would come. As soon as they were gone, Miss Liv ingston called Asa and went up into the north gable,and after considerable effort, succeeded in extricating a faded, green brocade lounge, and had it carried into her room Hhe one that was formerly Lady Alice's. . "Well, she is a queer one, and no mis take," soliloquized Asa. "What in time did she want of that old thing in there, for?" Jtsut after Asa bad gone down, the haughty - Miss Livingston knelt beside the faded lounge, and laid her proud head on it, and something very much like a tear glistened in the tender eyes. She passed her White jeweled hand caress ingly over it, and dusted it carefully with her own lair fingers. Something fell from the lining as she brushed it. She took it up ; it was a sealed letter bear ing Sir Frederic's superscription. Me chanically she unfolded it. The first word rivited her attention. She read on, growing white and rigid as death as she read, and when she came to tbe sig nature, sue cried as it in sharp pain. Then she arose like one half dazed, and going to a little writing-desk, pressed a curious spring,and deposited it within ; and white and trembling, threw open the window and leaned out. CHAPTER V. Fire! fire!" rang out in sudden sharpness on the heavy silence and gloom of midnight, it ran up and down the deserted streets, and the surround ing hills caught it up and echoed it back to the bay. Windows were hastily thrown up, and numberless heads, in every shape of dishabille, were thrust out. Firemen were running toward their different engine-houses,, there was a hurried "limbering np," and the famil iar rattle of machines over the rocky streets. A window was thrown np at the Wayerly, just as the "Emerald," Xo. 4, went lumbering down the street. "Where is the nre, boys?" shouted a voice. "Up near the bead of Carmarthan street." And a score of voices caught it 1 up and repeated, 'fire! fire!! Carmar than street!" "All Carmarthan street in flames!" and the like. The window at the Waverly was speedily closed, and almost immediately the Rev. Paul Russel issued from the door, and joined the stream of people that were now pouring in that direction. A sudden turn brought him in full view of the flames, which gleamed with a ghostly, yellowish glare, through the dense clouds of fog and smoke that en veloped the city. It was a large, square building, occu pied as a boarding-house, in which the fire originated, but two or three smaller buildings In its immediate vicinity had already caught from it, and the wildest excitement and consternation prevailed througnout the entire neighborhood. "There's two girls in the back third story yet," somebody cried. "Who are they?" "It's- them two English girls who work at Breeu & Sons. Everybody else- is down, and it's too late to save them." "JSot if they are alive, man! What are you thinking of, to let two women perish without an ettort to save them! This Way boys." And the lithe form of rant Kusset - disappeared around tne back side of the burning building. The wind had blown the hie a'vav from that portion of the building, and having originated in the basement, the back third story was comparatively uu irijnred, although smoke was beginning to issue from the windows, at one of which a white-robed figure was standing, motionless and speechless with terror, A ladder was hastily procured, but it was not so easy a thing to mount it. The heat from the lower portion of the build mg was intense, and burning boards and shingles were tailing in every direc tion. The firemen, knowing better tlie danger, shrank from attempting it. There was an instant's pause and Paul Russel sprang to the ladder. "stop!" cried a voice Trom the crowd It's my young ladies, and if anybody's coin' to save them I am." And Tiinmy JJryne drew back tne rector with his sturdy arm, and amid the shouts and warnings of the crowd, sprang up the ladder like a cat. "Ddn't be frightened, little gfrl," he shouted, halfway up the perilous height, "Faith ! you're too sweet and pretty for the ugly nre to touch '." . In tbe meantime l'aul Kussell was preparing for emergencies. He bor rowed a thick coat from a bystander and sprinkled it literally with water, and then buttoned it to his chin. Then he took a silk handkerchief, and making it very wet, bound it carefully about hi head and' face, Tiinmy Brvne had reached the win dow, but, instead of taking the lady and descending with her. they both disap pearea inside, uut it was only lor mcmcnt, as he almost immediately reap peareu, bearing a light burden, care fully wrapped in blankets, in his arms A wild snout went up from the crowd and somebody proposed three cheers for Ximmy Jiryne, which were given with a will, tor Ximmv was a general lavor Ite; being as brave and generous, as he was honest and warm-hearted. But the cruel flames had no feeling for hiin notwithstanding, and the red-hot cin ders fell on his face and hair, and caught to flame the collar ot his checked shirt, and the wind baffling round blew whole clouds of .-aoke ami name into lug nos trils, but he persevered, until whei within a few feet of the bottom, a se ond-story window loosened from the sash, fell with a crash immediately upon ins liead. He toppled aud would have fallen, but strong arms caught him aud bore him, with his inanimate burden, to a place of safety. Though stunned and bewildered, he had still presence of mind enough to point back to the win dow and make frantic gestures to the crowd. " 'Alas ! they had forgotten there were two; and iu the excitement of watching the descent, had not seen the little white-robed figure s,tlll at the window. IEEW DEVOTED TO LITERATURE, SCIENCE, But there was one who had not iorgot i ten. One who remembered the sweet, earnest faces" that looked up to him so trustingly every Sabbath, and whose clear, pure voices were always beard in tbe responses. And so when the crowd turned their attention once more to the window, they saw Paul Russel nearly to the top of the ladder. He had very thoughtfully provided himself with a' wet blanket which he threw over the light undress of the girl, and folded carefully over her face. It was well he had taken the precautions he had, for the front roof had already fallen in, and the flames were licking with their forked tongues the doors and ceilings of the chamber from which he had just taken the girl, she yielded berselt submis sively to his directions, only asking ouce; if "Alice was hurt." Some one called out, "the ladder is on fire." Almost immediately he felt it give aud sway beneath his weight. He wastenteet from the ground. He drew his arm a little closer around the muffled figure, aud leaped to the ground just as the ladder snapped in two six feet from the ground, and fell with a crash into the debris of broken glass and bulling cinders. For a moment there was a dead si lence. Only the hissing and crack ling of the flames disturbed the stillness, and then there arose simultaneously, from more than a thousand pair of lungs, a shout that rang and reverberated through the clef ted hills and wooded ravines, startling the night, birds in their secret lairs. And Tiinmy Brvne, with his hair half singed off his head, his face and hands blistered, and his clothes hanging about hiin in scorched ard blackened tatters, sat up on the grass and shouted as loud as any of thein! Timmy had splendid lungsl Arthur St. Orme had stopped in the city that night at the house of his prin cipal, Mr. Vanstone. And it was he who had taken the insensible form of Alice Clair from the arms of Timmy Brvne when he fell. Mr. "Vanstone's house was but a few rods distant, and there he bore the unconscious girl. And a little later, Amy, pale and fright ened, and in a sad state of dishabille, was borne to the same hospitablo shelter, for she had begged pitifully to be taken to Alice. "I forgot to ask permission, Mrs. Van stone," Arthur said, after a little of the excitement had subsided. . "I should have been very sorry if you had, Arthur; for it might have implied a doubt of my humanity." "Do you think they are injured at all?" "Xo; although the youngest Alice, I bciieve her name is still lies in a sort of stupor. Her sister says she had not been well for several days. She has a bad cough, and looks to me as if she was inclined to consumption. She could not rouse her, she said, sufficiently to get her to the window, and the smoke, which came through the crevices from the other rooms, seemed to Btifie her and render her insensible. But Dr. Gray thinks she will rouse betore morning." "Do vou know them these Clalrs?" "I have seen them at church. You know we worship at St. James. I have heard that they were orphan girls, who could not bear to stay in England after the death of their parents and only brother, and so emigrated to America, They have peculiarly sweet, pure faces, but the younger one looks too Iragile. "Sewing girls aren't they?" "Yes, tailoresses. They work for Breeu & Sous, King street." "How long have they been in the Province?" "I think we both have reason to re member the exact date," she replied, smiling. "They came over in the Ber muda, at the same time that Miss Liv ingston of Liudenwold came." Ah : mat s what limmv Jiryne meant by his young ladies. I have heard some thing ot it. borne rivalry between him md English, I believe." x es. you see English was fortunate enough to get the heiress, upon which lie plumed himself a great deal. But iimnv insists that though 'Miss Liv- ngstoii may be a born lady, his young ladies are born angels.' And I think the xoor fellow has displayed his devo tion in a very heroic and praiseworthy manner to-night." 'Tim is a nnbie fellow ! If it hadn't beeu for bun and Russel, these girls would both nave perished. X don't th nk there was another man in the crowd who bad nerve enough to do it. didn't get there till Tim had started to come down ; but if I bad, I don't think 1 should have done it any sooner than the others, I tell you it was terri ble! the firemen said that tbe attempt was sheer madness that the thing was imDOsible.

Now that tlie Territories have assumed a significance, not to say grandeur, un known in the days of Jackson and Polk we may better appreciate Thomas H. Benton's stereotyped advice whenever young man called on blm at Washing ton to iisk ins innuence ior it clerkship in one of the departments: "Go to the Territories, sir; or to one of tbe new States. Go to Iowa or Missouri ; go to Wisconsin or Illinois. It vou are a law yer haug out your shingle and show that you are deserving; if a farmer, buy a quarter section of laud and culture It; if a mechanic, open a shop and work ; but don't stay here to burn yourselves out with rum, or to rust out with idleness. Do anything but to serve as a slave in one of these wretched bureaus." Good advice thirty, forty, even fifty ytsars ago and better to-day. The men who went forth into the Territories in Xtaiilou's OHIO time, ;when be leftenuessee for. MTssii-l n, or .wnen sam-xiousun leit leuucssee i ior x tried from Kentucky to. Iowa, after the Mex-1 ican war: like the early, pioueers to oth-1 er regions," when tlie West was bounded by the Missouri river these men had a hard time of it.

PETER CART WRIGHT. One of the oldest " and "most " widely known Methodist preachers in America died on Wednesday, at his home, .near leasant i'lains, Sangamon county; 111. X'eter Cartwright was eighty-seven years old. He was a native of Amherst comity, v a., and was born in 178o,' two years after tlie close or the Revolutionary war, While he Was still a child his parents re moved with him to Kentucky. His early years were spent in that wild frontier land, where the war-wnoop ot the sav age often aroused his father ana ins neighbors' to the defence "of their' lives and homes.' Peter was scarcely sixteen years old when be was converted by an itinerant preaeer, and became a member of the Methodist Episcopal Cbnrcb. "The event determined the' career of his whole life. He conceived the idea that he had been called to preach the gospel in the wilderness, and almost immediately he entered upon that duty. In his auto biography, published about fifteen years ago, he relates many interesting and often amusing incidents of his early la bors in the backwoods. Like - many of the men ot his time and section, he had an iron constitution ana a strongly marked individuality, and was a bold, courageous,' and zealous worker, tie feared neitner man' nor tne devil, ana tor his cause was ready at any time to fight both if they stood in his way. His speech was homely, but it was earnest, and went straight to the hearts of his rough audiences, xie was heard to say a few years ago that he had received into the church no fewer than 12,000 persons and that: m inS : long career he had preached 15,000 sermons, in the eany pioneer days he naturally met some hard characters, who, insti gated by the adversary, would endeavor to bring disgrace upon him. lie tells Id his autobiography that once a brutal fel low threatened ' to whip him. Peter said, ' Well, sir, I never like to live in dread, it you really intend to whip me come and do it now." Tlie man con tinued to bluster, whereupon' the fight ing preacher, dismounting from his horse, walked up to him and said, "XoW, sir. you nave to whip me, as you threat ened, and stop cursing me, or 1 will put you in the river aud baptize you in the name of the devil, for surely you belong to him." 1 his cowed the bully. An anecdote is also related which illustrates his .singular boldness and independence; He was preaching before the Nashville Conference,' when the time-servlng"cler- gyman whose pulpit he occupied, seeing uenerai Jackson standing in the aisle, leaned over and said in a loud w hisper, " General Jacksou has come in. General Jackson hascoine in." Wbo-isGene-ralJackson ?"cried Cartwright in a voice Of thunder, "if be don't get his soul converted God' will damn hiin as quick as he would a uuinea negro.r' . This did not convert Old Hickory at the time, but it commanded ins respect for his moni tor, and he treated him with tlie great est consideration ever afterwards. . i Mr. Cartwright was first appointed a presiding elder in 1812.. . He spent eight years in the Old - Western. : .Conference, eight years in .the Tennessee Conference, aud oyer forty-five years in the Illinois Conterence. He held at "different times many of the most important offices in the church, and was , delegated to General Conference thirteen times. In 1833 and 1838, m the absence of the-Bishop, he was President, of the Conference, . It is recorded of him that in all the years of bis ministry he was never discontinued. located, or superannuated, and was never dismissed for a time for misdemeanors of auy kind. In 1856 he publislied the story ot his lite lu a volume entitled cVutobiograDhv of Peter Cartwriehti the Backwoods Preacher." This book had a wide circulation and made the old man better known in the East, where he seldom had visited. During the last few years the feebleness ot advanced years prostrated him, and it was only a few montns ago mat nis death was prema turely announceu. JOY. " No joy so great but runneth to aa end. No hap so hard but may ia time amend." What melancholy and yet what conso lation in that couplet of the old poet, Southwell, xt contains within its simple ihyme the secret of life's greatest sad ness the instability ot earthly happi ness; and it shows that property of good in all things evil which makes the evil tolerable to the most impatient aud insubordinate spirit, and profitable in a high degree to the patient and obedient.

STEAMt OS THE ERIE 'c ASA 1.1 . It w ill be remembered that the New York State authorities last winter offered one hundred thousand-dollars to any person . who - would, construct a - steam canal boat, capable of carrying -200 tons of freight from Buffalo to New York at a cheaper rate than towing by horses,: the average speed to be three miles per hour. .Numerous experiments have been made and a boat has just been-completed at r ishkill Landing designed to compete tor the prize. The boat and engine were de signed by Mr. William Baxter, ot New ark, . The boat, can be run at the rate of five miles an hour on the riyer.. ; Three hils of coal will furnish power sufficient to move the boat from Troy to Buffalo, A horse boat averages nine trips a season a trip meaning the passage between New xork and Uuttalo and return. The steam canal boat will make fifteen trips. When the saving in; time is considered, causing a decrease-in the amount paid for wagesi provisions, &e.,..besides movr ing so much more freight, ,, the advantage of the new mode of navigation .wllLbe seen, on Minmiuy atrial was made and among those on boain was David A.

The boat started from tlie landing at one o'clock, and ran above A ew Ham burg a distance of ten miles in one and and a halt Hours," returning against a strong tide, in two and a half honrs, making an average of five miles an hour, the consumption of coalbeingten pounds per mile, tne cost ot towing being thirty five cents per ' mile. The .Erie Canal Is 352 miles in length, and is openfomavi- gation 212 days out ot rfbo. A boat towed by horses travels-one mile and a half ner hour, and thetowaare costs from. 3o to Snoonlz' nal -mllo - iVctAniirt nonal- hnQt will run three miles ner hour lit less ex- pense.

CHEMICAL, PAPERS! A new style of colored paper has been recently introduced, designed to be used for checks, drafts, and other commercial purposes. Such is the preparation oi tins paper that figures once made, upon it cannot oe erased or chemically re moved without leaving a mark, that I would lead to immediate detection. In the samples of this paper that have been shown an admirable degree of perfection. nas been, obtained, ana the invention or discovery promises to become very pop-; ular. . The preparation ot-tins paper Is extremely simple, and It ' is a matter of surprise that, the process - was not dis covered years ago. The coloring mate rial used Is simply dilute wntinsr fluid. winch gives the paper, a delicate French gray shade. Characters written with a pen on this cannot be removed iu any manner. Xf scratching is . resorted to, the surface Will be removed and the white body .of the paper underneath would show the attempt. The coloring matter of the surface being the same as the ink used in writing upon it, any chemical preparation that would remove one would remove - the other, and thus any attempted alteration won id be dis covered, a ne process, it would appear, is designed to furnish an article for bank checks aud valuable documents that will be absolutely proof against alteration. If this result is obtained the - paper will undoubtedly come into general use, as it will be much more .convenient and satisfactory than the variety of stamps and punches that are now used to secure tbe same result. The machines used to cut out or impress the figures upon the check, at best, disfigure it, and a prepar ed paper that would be equally sate would u idoubtedly take their place At Bnvonne New Jersef Frirthv 'f 4nZn- of nitr'o-fflvce,-- - , ,". r.,, t,.S,' ., .

The question Wlio is to be the next Pope; is much discussed in Europe in private and in public. Many schemes in different countries and in different inter ests are formed for securing the succes- sion.

This Cardinal was born at Terranuova, in was born at Terranuova, Sicily, on the 14th of August, 1808, and was made cardinal by X'ins ia. in the consistory of the 26th of September, 1861.
