Gift ef Money in a Bank. An interesting case in reference to the rights of parties to deposit itobank was recently de cided in Maryland. An account was opened in a savings baqfc to the creditjcf "James Cannon, fu ject totkis order, or to the order of Mary E. Cannon," bisdaaghter; and money from time to time was thus deposited. Upon tiie death of James Cannon, Mary E. Cannon claimed that her father, in his lifetime, had given her the book of deposit with the money credited therein, to be held by her in trust for herself; and her brothers and sisters. The only mode in which money could be changed from one person's account to an other's in the bank, was "by payment of the one account and a new deposit in another ac count." Upon a bill filed by the administra trix of James Cannon, claiming the money in bank as belonging to his estate, it was held that the deceased had not parted with the legal dominion and control over the money standing in his name in the bank, became it wa3 there mbj#.jt to his order or the order of his daughter ; nor did the deli vet y of the book of deposit constitute a delivery of the money, and the complainant was therefore entitled to it as of the estate of the deceased. It bas, however, been held that the delivery of cer tificates of deposit operated as a good gift, al though not presented until after the death of the original depositor. Bonanza* In Oregon. Baker county, Oregon, appears to oodtain a nest of bonanzas, which, according to current reporte, are of immense valu» Three speci mens were recently assayed that give indica tions of great wealth in the mines opened a short time since. A gold specimen taken from the Virtue mine assayed $1500 to the ton. The entire yield is reported to be very ' rich, and will average fully as good as the specimen. The best paying quartz is said to be that taken from the Monumental mine on Granite Creek, whioh assayed $1403 to the ton. The specimen was from rnby-silvet quartz, taken from the bottom of a shaft flf y feet deep. A third specimen was from the Heath district and also renders a large per cent of pure metal. The great drawback to the thorough open ing of these mines seems to be the lack of transportation facilities, cf tbe coming of which the new telegraph line is believed to be the forerunner. The Portland, Oregon, Journal says there are also valuable deposits in other counties, and farther, that " when men be come willing to work mines which yield them four to five dollars per day, thousands m them can be accommodated in that region, where acres of wild lands need only the hand to work them. A great many Chinamen are now working such claims; and some day, when that country is brought into dose and che^p commercial relation with the great highways of the nation's traffic, thousands oi honest laborers will make those lauds yield money not to be sent to an empire from which it never returns. Files Manufactured by Machinery. A Boston party has succeeding in inventing a process for manufacturing steel files by. machinery, which would appear to dispel ex isting doubts as to the practicability of the undertaking. The machinery is constructed in a manner that makes the process of manu facture an identical imitation of the process of outting by hand. We have seen no state ment as to the number of files thatcairbe produced in any specified period of time, and consequently can give no estimate of the ad vantage of the maohine over the hand work in this respect, but it is certain there would be but little notiee taken of the invention unless it contained this advantage. A machine of this kind, if a complete success, will certainly reduce the price of files. Gaa Machines and Inemance. [N. Y..Bulletin ] The high price of coal gas, the generally arbitrary condoct of gas companies, the bad « of the gas they frequently furnish, e offensive abase of their corporate privileges have forced upon the public the question—how can they best escape theee ex actions and annoyanoes and economise their lighting expenses. A very extensive relief has been found in the use of kerosene. In Brooklyn, we should judge that fully one-half of the stores have adopted this oil in prefer ence' to gas, and in private dwellings a like change has taken place, but perhaps not to an equal extent; and the resnit appears in a light which puts gas entirely in the shade and in a saving of two-thirds of the former expense. So well pleased are consumers with the result that they probably coaid not be in duced to return to the nse of gas if the com panies were to reduoe their charges for it by one-haif. This is a fair speoimen of the wav in which the abuses of monopolies work out their own punishment; and the penalty in this case is a most serious one, as it cannot fkil to ultimately reduce very largely the value of their investment. There is, however, a limit to the extent to whioh kerosene can be used as a substitute for oommon gas. It can not so well be used in large buildings and in faotories, owing* to the trouble bf trimming the lamps and to a certain atnount of danger from oarelessness where sooft patters have to be trusted .to em ployees without oversight The same sort of objeotioa is felt by some of the large store keepers andwfiil more by families occupying large and toell-farnished residences. These classes prête the use of gas for its greater cleanliness and convenience. To such con sumers the only relief offered is in the use of gas supplied by the gasoline machines, to which, unter the circumstances, much atten tion is bMng directed. These machines are fixed fib * the dwelling, store, or factory at à moderate outlay, and supply gas through the ordinary fixtures. The quality of the light is Car superior to that of coal gas, involves no more trouble ihn it does, end, for the amount of light furnished, Is far cl An idea ' cheaper. hto prevailed, however, that the use of gasolkto is more or less dangerous, and as the publie revulsion against the nse of com mon gas has brought a larger number of these machines into use, the insurance companies have found it necessary to examine thoroughly into the question of the danger attending the use of fhie* kind of light The National Board of Underwriters recently appointed a special oonunittee to inquire whether the use of gas machines increases the hazards of insurance. The. report of that committee is now before us, and shows that, after a careful and scien tific inquiry, the conclusion was reached that when tne machines are properly pat np and by oompetent mechanics, then is no more daoger attending them than there is in the use of or dinary gas. The comchitiee reported a series of rules in respect to the locating of the apparatus and the proper construction of the fixtures; which, if followed by the insurance compa nies,, would proteotthem from all special risk; and if parties nsing the machines will follow those regulations they will find no objections and no demand for special rates from insurers on account of their using gasoline. It is satis factory to find the doubts on this point thus set at rest by competent authority: and those who may desire to save expenses and at the pam. time indulge in the luxury of light ing their homes or their stores with the best of ail lights, need have no scruples about doing so, cn the ground of any supposed danger or extra insurance. Direct Tiade with Brazil. [St Louis Trade Journal, 10th inst ] Mr. Mogridge, accompanied by Mr. J . B. Cooke, left New Orleans last Tuesday even ing, and reached this dty yesterday. They are here now for the purpose of securing sub scriptions to the capital stock of the New Ot or de be in it of to of a a to y of m oi by. leans and Bio Janeiro Steamship Company, and we have only to say that they bring with them such evidence as should satisfy all of the propriety of lending substantial couramment and aid. At a meeting held in New Orleans last Friday night the attendance was large and the results in evt-ry way sa<is factory. Over $40,000 worth of stock was subscribed for in a few moments, and to this amount $10,000 more was subsequently added, making a bona fide subscription of $50,000 in N-w Orleans to start. Now that New Orleans has taken so decided a stand, it is desired that St. Louii should take some corresponding action. The ad vantages fo the Mississippi Valley of direct trade with Brazil and various ports between New Orleans and Itio Janeiro have been shown repeatedly, and we do not think there are any who remain unsatisfied. It only re mains now to crystalize that belief into de cided form here in St. Louis. The company will begin active work under its charter as soon as $80,000 shall have been subscribed to the capital stock, and $50,000 for this pur pose ought to be raised in St. Louis in one day. ___ The road to a brilliant Democratic victory is now open. It needs only that the National Democracy shall put the currency question as far as practicable behind them ; that they shall continue their policy of retrenchment of expenses and redaction of taxation; that they shall pnsh their investigations, lay bare every sore, and make manifest every dishonest act of every pnblic officer, and that they shall— first, last and always—make the Constitution and the law their platform, and pare and capable government the prime object of their endeavors. Thus can they win. Nay i they bave the game in their own hands ; the cards will almost play themselves. It is inconceiva ble that the Democrats shall be beaten; but the National Democracy bave an extraordi nary knack of doing the wrong thing at tie right time, and we shall not feel safe until the election is .over .—Charleston News and Courier.
