A PROFESSOR of the lowa University
is charged with placing eighty kegs of beer
where they would do the most good iu electing
him to the State Senate.— lCr. This is certainly
a clear ease of "trouble brewing." The peculiar
difficulties of placing eighty kegs of beer
where they would work to the best advantage,
politically, is and must have been a novel
study for the ambitious savant, and one of those
problems which the oldest brewer in the land
could not help him one single step toward sat
isfactory solution.

IT has come at last. Sitting Bull,
as a prominent slaughterer at large, has un
doubtedly been neglected, for he has never
been invited to take the lecture platform ; but
virtue is its own reward, and the ferocious
chief is now in demand by a gentleman who
wishes to make him the leading feature of a
travelling show. There can be no doubt that
Sitting Bull would succeed as a popular attrac
tion if he could draw audiences as steadily as
he drew rations and raise the hair of his hear
ers as effectively as he has raised that of scores
of white men.

THE inevitable bill for the transfer
of the Indian Bureau to the War Department
turned up in the House at \V ashington, last
Wednesday. Of the other bills put in that
day, the "most remarkable is that of Mr.
Weaver, of lowa, who wants the Treasury to
pay to the soldiers and sailors of the late war,
or their legal representatives, the difference
between the currency which they received and
the gold win which they should have received,
with six per cent, interest, and for this pur
pose to issue new greenbacks up to the limit of
1300,(XX),000. These greenbacks Mr. Weaver of
lowa would have made legal tender for all
dues, public and private. Bills for the refund
ing of the National debt were introduced by
Garfield and Fernando Wood.

THERE has been one church fair too
many. The Oxford Presbyterian congregation
of Philadelphia, having a six thousand dollar
organ to pav for, resorted to the everlasting
church fair and held it in the church building.
Too much fire was left in the stove used for
cooking oysters and such things necessary to a
church fair, and the society, to use worldly
language, last Wednesday morning found it
sely out a two hundred thousand dollar church
a six thousand dollar organ, which it still owes
some monev on, and eight thousand dollars'
worth of fair goods, on all of which there was
little more than forty thousand dollars of in
surance. The net loss is considerably more
than a hundred thousand dollars, and all be
cause the church had bought an expensive
musical instrument before it had the money to
pay for it.

AT last General Grant has been
heard from on the Presidency question. A
friend of the General's—name not given—met
him at the Governor's reception in Nevada and
asked what fie thought concerning his nomina
tion. General Grant answered without hesita
tion and with emphasis, "I sincerely hope no
necessity will arise calling for my nomination."
Come to look at it, forward anil backward,
from above and below, standing up and lying
down, and finally ending it up to take a more
thorough view, tfiere is a sort of indefinitness.
as it were, about this answer when considered
as a refusal. — Ex. We d > not believe that
Grant ever made the conceited answer here
credited to him, for he must well knoar that it
is impossible for any contingency to arise in
this country necessitating the calling of any
one particular citizen to the Presidential chair.
ONE of the largest stocks of Ameri

SINCE the addition has been built to
the Carbon Black factory at the station on the
Branch road, B,(MM) gas jets have been burning
day and night. The gas is conducted from the
well to a large tank or meter and from it in
parallel lengths, of 2 inch g;is pipe, through
the building. Along the sides of these are
fitted short branches of A gas pipe, terminating
in a slight upward curve and tip|>ed with or
dinary gas burners of 0 foot per hour capacity.
Above these burners, at a distance of 10 inches,
are placed a series of (Mist iron plates, contigu
ous and forming a smooth surface whereon the
carbon black is deposited. A small car travel
ing on rails laid between burners and plates,
and furnished with a scraping device, plies
forward and back every ten minutes during
the twenty-four hours. This earrage is pro
pelled by steam power, operating through
wire rope and suitable gearing, drums, etc.
The smoke or carbon black is scraped into pans
hung upon the car, and these are dumped at
each end of the route into receptacles, which
are in turn emptied and deposited in tne puri
fying and packing house. After limply re
moving cinders, etc., by passing through sieves,
the soot is ready for the market. It is
then packed in bust-wood barrels mode*especi
ally for the purpose, ami then shipped to New
V'ork. Two qualities of the black arc made,
the finest for use in manufacturing job ink,
and the other for news Ink. We do not know
what the production of the works is, though
we see it stated in the Scientific Ami-riant, that
each burner will produce 4 pound daily. What
(he black is worth also, we do not know, and
we can sec no quotations in our daily ex
changes, but if the price of the finer article
correspond* in any degree with that of job ink
for which we pay from $1 to $2 per pound, the
manufacture of Carbon Black is undoubtedly a
very profitable business. A new works is be
ing built at Murravsville, Westmoreland
county ( and Captain llazlett's works at Den
ny's mills will soon be in operation.

To the Honorable the .fudge* of the Court of
Quarter Sauious of liutlcr County :
We, the Grand Jury now in session for the
county of Butler, through our Foreman, do
present that we have visited the county jail in
a body and inspected the snrne, ami have sum
moned In-tore us a number of witnesses and
examined them in relation to said jail. And
we find raid building very defective for want
of proper ventilation. We, therefore, recom
mend that steps be taken immediately by the
County Commissioners to have said building
properly ventilated. And do further recom
mend that some change be made with regard
to the separation between the male and female
apartments, to prevent the immoral conversa
tion and improper conduct that we find is
carried on and practiced between the sexes.
And do further recommend that the Super
visors of the different townships be specially
ordered by the Court to repair all bridges and
dangerous places ; erect barriers on bridges or
embankments not having the same.
And would especially call the attention of !
the Court to that particular point in Summit I

Stevenson's l>am, and have the projier parties
erect a barrier between the railroad and
the public road ; and also that hand boards be

Literary Notes.
The Atlantic Monthly in to contain more
good things than ever, and in more inviting
form. Beginning with the January number,
it is to be printed from larger type on a page
considerably larger than the former, and will
be increased to 144 pages.
A new Serial Storv, by Mr. Howells, be
gins in the January number, and will run
through six months or more. This is prolmbly
the most gratifying announcement that could
IK* made to American magazine readers.
The fine lite-fize portrait of Dr. Holmes,
which Messrs. Houghton, Osgood & Co., offer
for a dollar to the subscribers for the Atlantic,
can hardly fail to have a very large circula
tion ; certainly not, if the American people
remember how much the wise and witty "Au
tocrat of the Breakfast Table" has contributed
to the brightest and best, and most entertaining
partion of American Literature.

An Apolosry and Big Business.
[From the Pittsburgh Sunday Leader, Nov .'so.]
Thanksgiving day was so bright
and beautiful that many persons hav
ing leisure took advantage of it and came
to the Studio of Sperber, in Allegheny,
in such numbers that all the resources
of this model establishment were not
able to meet the demands and many
had to go away without having their
Photographs taken. This could not
be prevented, though partly foreseen
and supposed to he provided for; but
when patrons come so fast that it is
impossible to serve then all, it is to be
hoped that this explanation will show
how sorry .Mr. Sperber is that some
were disappointed in not being served.
Hut he wishes us to state that lie will
treat all alike, and invite those who
have been at his Studio and those who
have never been there, to call on him
and examine his work, and, if he is
thronged with work, to make engage
ments for sittings, which will be faith
fully adhered to. .Mr. Sperber is ac
knowledged by all artists to be a first
class workman, and t he best test of all is
that his pictures always please and
are much sought for. Remember the
place, NOB. 90 and 02 Federal street,
Allegheny City.

Llttell's Living Ago for 1800.
The fact that this standard weekly magazine
has had a successful career of over thirty-five
years against luueh competition, is proof suffi
cient that it meets On undoubted want of the
public. It furnishes what is essential to Amer
ican readers in A great and itidcHpenitable cur
rent literature a literature which embraces
more and more every year the work of the
ablest thinkers and writers of the day. As the
only satisfactorily complete and fresh com
pendium of this literature, its iuiportanee and
value have steadily increased. It enables the
reader, at trilling expense considering the
quantity and quality id' the reading furnished,
t<i keep pace with the best thought and literary
work of our time ; and its great convenience
to every intelligent person or family can there
fore hardly be over-rated.
The extra offer to new subscribers fur IMKO,
and the reduced clubbing rates, lire worthy of
note in tin- prospectus published iu another
column. The magazine is well worth the at
tention of those who are selecting their read
ing for the new year. As the multitude of
periodicals increases more and more beyond
the means and leisure of readers, the value of
such a comprehensive one us this become more
and more apparent.
