He holds that the true inteut and meaning of the law in giving the Judge power grant or refuse licenses, **iu the discretion of the Court," is to confer "sound judicial discre t on" in the premises, and "not to give an au thority which would enable the Court to say 'the discretion of the Court is to grant no licenses.'for that would not l>e discretion but arbitrary power, not the judicial opinion of the Court but the private will of the Judge." In this his views do hot differ materially, if at all, from those which governed the late Judge McDermitt in his action on the question.— Mercer Dispatch. —lt is a curious coiucidence, at least, that the late cold spell was almost contemporaneous with the January fall moon —confirming a too njuch-overlookfed observation of Artie explor ers, especially Kane aud McClintock,_ that "the lull moon season, with cloudless nights, is always in correspondence with the lowest mean temperatures of our meteorological re cord." That the lull moon, whose surface is probably heated to more than 212 degrees, does exert a very marked dispersive influence over terrestrial clouds is a meteorological tact, which Humboldt speaks of as well known to seamen of the Spanish Main and which Her schel's observations coufirm. Tha fact seems not to have escaped the fine eye of Coleridge, who, describing in "Christabel" the attenuated night cloud, says;— The moon is behind, and at the full, And yet she looks both small and dull. The night is chilly, the cloud is gray. Wool. By the act of the National Legislature of 1867, all wools, hair of the alapaca, etc., ported into this country were classified and taxed as follows: Clothing wools, such as merino, down cloth ing wools and wools of like character, such as are imported from Buenos Ayres, New Zea land, Australia, Caoada and elsewhere, to be Class 1, and be taxed ten cents a pound and eleven per cent ad valorem when valued at 32 cents a pound or less, and 12 centß a pound and 10 per cent, ad valorem when valued at over 32 cents a pound, Combing wools—Leicester, CoUwold, Down combings, Canada long, etc., also hair of the alapuoa, goat and other like animals to be Class 2, and be taxed 10 cts a bound and 11 cents ad valorem when valued at 32 cents a pound or less, and 12 cents a pound 10 per cent ad valorem when valued at over 32 ct*. Carpet wools, such as Donskoi, Native South American, Native Symrna, etc., to be Class 3, and be taxed 3 cents a pound when valued at 12 cents or less and 6 cents valued at over 12 cents. The duty on washed wool of the first class is double that of nnwashed and the duty on scour ed wools of all classes is three times what it would be if imported unwashed. Wools on the skin were taxed the same, and wool rags 12 rents a pound, and besides this all manufactured wool, such as shawls, blankets, flannels, carpets, clothing, etc, were heavily taxtd—ready-made clothing, for instance, be;ng taxed 50 cent? a pound and 40 per cent, ad valdrem. The new tariff bill—that passed last March and which went into effect on the first of last July—classifies wool about the same as before, but reduces the taxes or tariff on the first two classes by omitting the 11 and 10 per cent, ad valorem duties and reduces the tax on the 3d class from 3 and 6to 21 and 5 cents. The reduction in the first two classes amounts to about 3 cents a pound, on an average, and this is what the wool growers of the country are at present complaining of. They claim that the reduction is seriously interfering with tho industry 3 and in wool-growing or ; £abT*ing btttte and County Wool-Growers' Associations with the object of bringing about the restorations of the tariff of 1867 on foreign wools. Some of the prominent wool-growers of this county met in tnis town a few days since and organized an Association, to be known as the Butler County Wool-Growers' Associaii> n, of which Mr. Alex. Hunter was elected President; R. D. Stevenson and Josiah M. Thompson, Vice President'; J. E. Byers, Secretary, and Thomas R. Iloon, Treasurer. The Association was addressed by Mr. Herriott, Secretary of the State Association, A. D. Wier, Josiah Thompson aud Wm. M. Brown, and afterwards adopted a Constitution, stating the object of the Association, fixing the time of holding meetings, etc., apd also passed the following resolutions; WHEREAS. The reduotion of the tariff on foreign wools by the late Congress does materi ally cripple the wool-growing interests of the United States, aud threatens the destruction of our flocks; therefore be it Renoltrd, By the Wool Growers' Association of Butler county in convention now assembled, 1. That we recognize the tariff law as it now stauds to be an usjust discrimination to the wool.growers of the oountry, and dangerous to their interests and that it meets our disap proval and condemoation. 2. That we urge and demand our representa tive in Congress to "ote and twe hiu influence to repeal tt,"t present law, and to restore the tariff of 18t»7 on foreign wools. 3. That we ask only such protection from foreign importations as will enable us to pro duce sufficient wool for home consumption as a nation. 4. That we will cordially co-operate with all kindred organizations in an honest endeayor to secure these ends and protect our interests. It was also agreed that another meeting of the Association would be held next March, the President to name the date and place, aud that any one could become a member by sending his name and one dollar to the Sopretary, J. K. Hyers, M. D , at Butler, The wool-growers cannot reasonably expect any relief froin the preset Congress, as the House of Representatives has elected a free trade or "tarjff for revenue only" speaker, and Mr. Morrison, the chairman of the Ways and Means Committee is reported to be preparing a new tariffschedule, putting all raw materials on the free list.

We call our readers' attention to the value, usefullness and direct profit of supplying themselves this year with the American Agri culturist, the cheapest as well as the most val uable journal in tne country. Every number contains one hundred columns of original read ing matter, by the leading writers of the coun try, upon all topics connected with the Farm, Garden and Household, and nearly one hun dred engravings made specially for the Ameri can Agriculturist. The papar, now in its 43d year, is unquestionably more valuable than ever before. Each number brings fresh evi dence that no time or money is considered where the iatarest ot the paper is at stake. Its House Plans and Improvements, profusely illustrated, are worth more than any Costly architectural works. Its persistent and fear less exposure of Humbugs and swindling schemes, is of great value to the whole coun try, particularly the farming community. In short it has something good and valuable for everybody. Owing to a special arrangement with the publishers, we are enabled to offer the CITIZEN* and the American Agriculturist for one year, and the engravings "Foes or Friends?" and "In the Meadow" for $2.75.

M. on Thursday, carrying eighty passengers and a crew of forty-five At 3:45 A. M. to-day, Gay Head Light rearing South half East, the vessel struck on the outside of Devil's Bridge buoy.

All of the passengers excepting a few women and children, came on deck, nearly all wearing life preservers. All of the boats were cleared away, but were immediately swamped. A major ity of the passengers were washed over board. Seven passengers left the vessel on .a life raft, and about forty more took to the rigging. At 10:30 A. M. the Gay Head life boat put off and took seven persons. Another life boat put off between 12 and 1 o'clock. The revenue cutter Deiter came along at about 12:30 and sent off two boats.
