HAFER'S IMPROVED COXE RADIAT ORS Mr. John Hafer, of Bedford, Pa., ia the in ventor and owner ot letters patent tor a new and unique mode of saving heat, which, in these times of high prices for fuel is worthy the attention of all men. It consists of a series of cones, which can be placed inside the sheet iron drum of any stove, or which are of oast iron on his patent stove. The operation is simply a keeping back of the hot air from escaping into the chimney, while the draft of the stove is not at all lessened bnt, on the whole, we think it is improved. We have two of them now in operation in oar office, to which we invite the attention of all who may be pleased to call on us. They are cheap, simple, easy to make, oannot get out of order, and are an ab solute saving of heat, a great savins s i eat that they are worthy the attention of all. Mr. Hafer has soli the right to ue his cone raiiator in all the western states except Illinois and Iowa, and is now here fir the purpose of exhibiting his patent stove to our people. lie invites all who wish to give the principle a fair trial to call on him and he will put one into their stove on trial, so cer tain has it been rendered that the invention is the greatest heat saver in use. It would. no doubt, ad J much to the business of anv of our stove dealers to be able to control the use of this invention for this region of country. Mr. Hafer also has a gas burner in opera -tion, ia his room, at the Island City Hotel, warming the room very comfortably Iroji one small gas burner. He invites our citizens to call and see it in operation. In addition to our own trial of his Cone Radiator, we can say that we have seen sev eralot them ia operation in this city, and all who have them declare that their rooms are now more comfortable with one-half the coal they used before they put in the Radiator. Read the following, and then eall on Mr. Hafer, at the Island City Hotel, or enquire at Swiler & Burgh's stove store : Ma. Haver. Dear Sir I take pleasure in laying that Tour Cone Radiator ( Hafer' Pateat) ia the best heater in use. 1 hare had one is the hotel .or several days, and can safety say it does not burn more, ir auy, than naif the iuel of ordinary store and makes greater heat. Yours, very respectfully, JoHS STArFuBD, Island City Hotel, Hock Island. Rock Island, Jan. 8th, 1S66. Hater. Dear Sir 1 have two of your Cone Radiators in use. and 1 cau saielv Ma. Patent say that 1 am producing more heat and am not using but very little it any more than halt the fuel that Idid before 1 got them. Yours, truly, a. E. West, Billiard Room and Saloon. Ala. John Hater, Bedford, Pa. Dear Sir I have one ot your Cone Radiators in use for some time and find lfnot one ot the beat, but the best heating apparatus I ever siw, saving at least fifty per ceuU of fuel and giving more heat. Yours, truly, Hemry VVoltman, VV oilman's Salmon. Rock Island, Jan. Sth, lSGti. Mr. Hafer has a very large uumber of tes timonials of the Bame kind from every place he has visited. At the municipal election in Pittsburgh. Pa., on Wednesday last, Win. C. McCarthy, republican, was chosen mayor, over J awes Blackmore, independent democrat. , The ma jority is probably not far from fifty. The usual renublican maioritv in that citv is , - about fifteen hundred. A vote was beine taken on uo importaLt measure in tbe Indiana senate the other day Mr. . a grave and reverend senator hd not been attending to his "biz," and didu know what tbe question was. ilis name was called by the secretary, lie looked puzzled for a moment, and then rapping the desk with his knuckles, alter the manner of card playing, said "I pass 1" An audible titter ran through the hall, and the president of tbe senate "took it up. ' Nr. Lincoln and the iugltave Slave Law. A private letter from Mr. Lincoln, written just before his nomination for the presidency, has been unearthed Tn Ohio. The only im portance attached to the letter is a declara tion it cohtains on the subject of fugitive slave law, as follows : Two things done by the Ohio republican con vention namely, the repudiation of Judge Swan, and the"plauk"xor the repeal of the fugitive alave law, very much regretted. These two things are of a piece, and they are viewed by many good nien, sincerely opposed to slavery, as a struggle against, and in disregard if the constitution itt etfl and it is the very thing that will endanger our cause if it be not kept uut of our national conven tion. J udge Swan.who is referred to, was at that time a judge of the supreme court of Ohio, and had made a deoision in favor of the fugi tive slave law of 1SG0. Those who censure the democracy for its refusal to violate the constitution in order to nullify the fugitive slave law, have reason to feel themselves re buked by this language of the late president. Falling Asleep. The human body falls asleep by degress, according to M. Cabinis, a French physioWist. The mucles of th legs and arms lose their power before those fl whieh support tbe head, and these last soon- er than the muscles which sustain the baok ; and he illustrates this by the cases of persons who sleep on horseback, or while they are standing or walking. lie conceive that the sense of sight sleeps first, then the sense of tiste. next the sense of smell, and lastly, that f touoh, WINTER. He comes f The tardy winter comes ! 1 bear his footsteps through the nights I ' ' I hear his vanguard from the heights ' -: March through the pines with m filed drams I His naked feet are on the mead ; The glass blades stiffen ia his path, No tear for child ef earth he hath, No pity for her tender seed ! The bare oaks shudder at his breath ; A moment by the stream he stays Its melody is mute ! A gate Creeps o'er its dimples as of death ! From fettered stream and blackened moor, Tbe city's Valla he silent nears; The mansions of the rich he fears ; He storms tbe cabins of the poor ! The curtained couch, the glowing hearth, The frost-rimmed gray beard's defy ; He curses as he hurries by And strikes the beggar dead to earth ! For every glimmering hall he apares, A hundred heartless hovels hold Heart pulseless, crisp with ice and cold, . Watched by a hundred grim Despairs ! The forests grow by His command Who saith: "He lendeth to the Lord Who giveth to the poor!:' Your hoard Is His ! Y'e stewards of the land ! liere is your mission ! Ye who feed Your lavish fires ! Not far, But at your doors, your Heathen are ! God's poor your creditors take head ! The path is long to Pagan shores ; Their skies are sunny ; God's o'er all I The winter's deadly harvests fall Around you ! Deal your Master's stores ! A clerirvman in Colorado, conversing with a lady ot that part of the world on the vital eubiect of religion, asked her whether the consolations aud ministrations of the church were as precious to her in her new home in the states To which query she respond ed (in no irreverent spirit, but simply from the force of habit) "you bet I" The Adams Express car in the train be tween New York and New Haven, on the 6th. was robbed of about $500,000.

Mr. Argfs-ik, Dear Sir: Please send me a copy of your paper containing the re port ot tbe lecture ot that female woman on "Man's relatione to the Outer World," and oblige yours, truly. P. S. Enclosed you will nod stamps to defray funeral expenses. Mrs. tVILHKLM'S LECTURE. Editor Arscs : The lecture of Mrs. Wil helm, oo Sunday morning, was a lecture of a spiritualist, with spiritualism left out. She took general, common ground, the common premises of all believers in the immortality of the soul, tier argument was well sustaiu ed, and forcibly delivered, but, like the usual and old arguments in natural theology, noth ng new m it. it is a very pretty doctrine, as they teach it, if one can believe only in the beautiful. All humanity in passing on in a grand panoramic procession, up higher and higher. The wicked and vicious are apologized for. It is not in themselves but in their circumstances, and peculiarity of or (sanitation. It malorganized, tbey did not make themselves so ; no fault of theirs Now, this is very. pretty logic, if not for the drawback that, it is altogether heresy, and the history of mankind belies those vagaries. tier theory cuts loose tae iios ot in rai ac oountability. Society at large would break up, under it. as New Lanark did, and chans would oomo again. Do nut the worldly and carnal grasp at it. Hoping it is true, as a drowning man grasps at a straw, and draw this solaie from it, viz : they may keep right cm with itnpuuitv, as heretofore a much nicer idea than tbe one taught in the church that tbey must leave their sins, nnd lead I new life. Jtc. it suns the last young men, us tbey can do much as they please, as there is no lieu, so thy can j on in their Iicen tiouenexs unchecked and unbridled, travoling on the broad road that leads to destruction. Those that belicvo that goodness is inate and virtue intuitive may say what they like, but it practically bas that effect. A person that ignores revelation and bis tory and draws only upon tne ideal, may dramatize wuu some effect, but it is nothing worth, no saving efficacy in it It may play around the head but not effect the heart. Th burden of her argument?, in the even ing, was an attempt to snow taut J ex us was merely a good man, "the representative of i principle the same as Washington and JefFer on were," which she called the Washington- lan Hnd Jeffersonian principles, and the "Christ principle." which she said was the "principle of doing good." This is true as fur as it goes, tut those that stop there and go no further, have not the spirit ot Chrut within them. If Christ was only a good man, be was not a good man, but an impost S J r i i- .. - er anu a aeceiver, ior ne ciaimea to be more than man, and the miracles which he per- r , . ..... iormea, Bucn as raising tbe dead, came not of any pwjr that pertained unto man. Mrs. Wilhelm's elocticism, of takiog just what suits her and rejecting what does not, is preposterous and absurd in tbe extreme. In running a parallel between Christ and tbe apostles of the first century, -she l.Iowed on a great ueai in a uttie time, but it was the height of'impadence, fu!l of swagger and breathings ot detiance. It is not a question ot tmpassionate blowing simply. Is it true, what these spiritualists pretend to 7 There was nothing, from the alpha to the omega of ber discourse, that proved the troth of this specific doctrine. Censorious. Elihu B. Waskbume. To the Editor of the Chicago Times: You are doubtless familiar with the habits of that engaging bird of the desert, that fan cies itsell concealed from public vision when its bead only is in tbe sand. Mr. Elihu B. Washburhe, representative in congress from Galena, having got bis head well into the preent railroad excitement, is laboring under the earns pleasing delusion as to bis posteri or. It is not necessary to enlighten the pub lic upon his situation, but as what little brains he has are now exposed, it may be possible to enlighten him. Mr.Washburne wants to be re-elected from his district. What he wants to hide is his record. His constituents had two ereat ma erial interests to be protected, if possible, by lavorame legislation, iney raised immense quantities of the raw material of whisky. Their representative, with a felicitous devo tion to their interests rarely equaled and nev er exceIled,introduced and strenously labored for a law imposing an excise tax that has, in fact, stopped the manufacture of whisky and destroyed the market for corn, the chief pro- duet of his farmer constituent 8; and, in addi- tioa thereto, compelled the farmer, in case be desires to use whisky, to pay a tax of $ 8 for the whisky manufactured from a bushel of corn. Lead was also a ereat interest of the peo ple of his district. While the imported arti cles are so taxed as to afford tbe domestic producer ample protection, Mr. Washburne favored a tariff upon lead so low that that metal from Galena finds a rival on the very wharves ot Chicago from the mines ot the in terior of Spain. He wants these ugly facts hidden, or these betrayed men won't vote for him again. Hence he plunges into a fight, seaseleea and indiscriminate, against railroad corporations, and, under the smoke he raises, hopes to find his record obscure. I trust you will assist in exposing the whole of him. X. A Shrewd Editor. At a Welsh celebration in New York, Doo tor Jones tells tbe following amusing story : The speaker said editors were like other shrewd men, who have to live with their eyes and ears open. He related a story of an editor who start ed a paper ia a new village at the west. The town was infested by gamblers, whose pressnee weie a source of annoyance to the citizens, who told the editor that if he did not eeme out against them they would not patronize his paper. He re plied that he would give them a "smasher" next dar. Sure enoueb his next issue contained the promised "smasher," and on the following dav the redoubtable editor, with scissors in hand, was seated in his sanctum cutting out news, when in walked a large roan with a club in his aand, and demanded to know it the editor was In. "Ko, sir," was the reply, he has stepped out; take a sest and read tbe papers; he will return in a minute." Down sat the indignant man of cards, crossed his legs, with his club betwt-en them, and commenced reading a paper. In the meantime the editor quietlv vamosed down stairs, and at the landing below he met another eicited man with a cudgel in his hand, who asked him if the editor was in. "Yes, sir," was tbe prompt re sponse. "You will find him seated up stairs reading a newspaper " The latter, in entering the room with a furious oatn, commenced a lo re nt auiull upon the lorirer, which was resitted with equal ferocity. The fight was continued until they had both rolled le the loot of the stairs and pounded each other to their heart's content. Kalr Play. We have not the slightest disposition to screen any man from the consequences of a crime of which he has been fairly proven guilty. Let he axe of justice fall upon the neck of the offender, but let it fall alike on all equally euilty. Let not one man be make the scape goat for the sins of others, and especially let every man be fully convicted beyond the possibility of innocence be fore he it punished at all. We are led to these comments by an observation of some of the testi mony in the case of Wirz. AVhen such as that of Boston Corbett, referred to below, is allowed to influence the judgement of men, verily is it only necessary to accuse, to insure condemnation. The Seir York Xewt peaks ot Corbetl's testi mony as follows : Some of the 'testimony' which is being given before the military commission at Washington is of a character most extraordinary. When Bos-, ton Corbett, a turgeaut of the federal army, was for example asked : "If Captain Wirz had been more careful to protect the innocent from the desperadoes, would tic not have been obliged to be more strict in his discipline ?' Boston Corbett answered; "I never knew a man more atlrocious tliau Captain Wirz.'" The malicious cunning prompting that evasion ot the question is, however, but a feeble commentary on the worth of that evidence for the prosecution competed with the following; : Ttiis Boston Corbett testified, it will be recollect ed, that lie had been, on one occa.-ion, pursued bv the prison dogs : and though the animals hud failed to find him notwithstanding that, it ap pears, they might have traced him by the otlor of his sanctitv thev had, during their search, ac tually touched his nose! Iu croda-examinatiou the witness was asked : "You 8iy that on one occasion when vau lav concealed, one of the hound rubbed against your nose. v hv UiU ne not bite you? To that pertinent question tbe said Boston Corbett replud as follows : ' The same power that kept the lions from tearing Daniel in pieces is the same in whom I trust !" That man's oath ought not to convict a weasel of robbing a hen roost if found in the hei house with blood and feathers in his mouth. A jockey furnishes seme hints as to how to sell alior.e: "I t-'ll you it's all by" comparison have the critter, for sale, 'long side of a scrub aiu't one in fifty but what' II get fooled. Tliey loo first at the scrub and then at the other. and they think its a 'strordinary critter.'' Wooles Factories. Bio and Little. -We have seen estimates made that buildings and machinery sufficient for a woolen mill in our neighboring cities cannot be had short of some 160,000. We hold these figures tj be three times larcer than is necessary lor the real bul lies wants of any of our towns, unless the fac tory is intended for an immense business. We can cite a case in point right here at home. W hen Joseph Shields started his woolen ta.-torr here, he invested not to exceed ten thousand dollars. Events proved that a larcer mill w. required so he more than doubled his facilities and has invested in buildings and machinery about thirty thousand. This makls a sile thing of it. Moderate beginning, and careful manage meut is what is wanted not huge carital and extravagant outlay. A large share of the money invested in magnificent mills, is merely unpro ductive property used for ornament, and not a a means of profit. Many a noble project fails because too muh money is expended in getting ready to commence the work ; and not bwimw the project would not pay if conducted on an economical plan. In almost everything the or namental costs more than the useful, and the greater pari o: onr lailures are attributed to the frescoing instead of the soliditv of . tbe struc ture, and the necessities of running it machinery. But few men, comparatively, are competent to carry on an extensive business. They mav be successful when they keep within their depth, but when the .get into deep water, and lose their tootliold, the tide becomes too sironc for thpin and they sink. The same laws which hold in larminc, rules mechanics and manufacturers To succed, there muet be a system an economy in the arrangement of things. A farmer would be considered insate to hitch a span of five thousand dollar horses to a wooden plow in order to oreaa up bis lana, and on tbe scratches made by that instrument, sow his grain with the ex pectation of getting a full crop.

If there was to be but one mill in the whole state, U would be well, perhaps, to rear a magnificent structure provided all the woo! raised bv our farmer m.l obliged to be manufactured there and the people forced to patronize it to their utmam unt As It is, the business is open to competition and wise men should look at the matter in a !;.. point of view, before branching out into a need less expenditure. There is no doubt of the profitableness of woolen manufactories, when conducted on the right plan, but it must be economically.. Those who follow this plan will have no cause to fail ia business, and if they do i not get suddenly rich, they will make a comfor table living, and in time lay by a competence. Dav. JJern. A Few Questions tor the Radical. : Is slavery abolished as an institution in the United States ? If so, how waa it done unless the amendment to the constitution of the United States to that effect was ratified by states iu the Union ? Waa the proclamation of President Linaoln, abolishing slavery, of any binding force unless binding on states subject to the powers of the. general government or the Union 7 If so, bow could they be subject to the general government unless they were in the Union? If the confederate states were out of the Union, and not subject to its constitution and laws, but to their government established, why had tbey not power to create a debt which mortgaged the land and property of its inhabitants, and wnicn, being held by foreign nations, at least so far. be came a debt not to be repudiated either by its own subjects or by the nation conquering it by force of arms 7 Ilad the confederacy succeeded in seceding from the Union, and accomplished the object of their rebellion, and subsequently we had, through purchase or annexation, united, should we not have been obliged to assume its debt as well as its territory 1 If so, under a peaceful annexation, are we not equally liable through conquest, if those states were out of the Union and a distinct people were an established govern ment ? Can anv legislation by congress, anv expres sions in anyof the proclamations or messages of President Lincoln, any statement in any ot our diplomatic correspondence, any orders from our generals iu tne held, be produced, which for moment can ne construea into an admission on our p.irt that those states were, or have been out of the Union, and were not subject to the re quirements ot the constitution 7 Motion rout.
