The Reynolds Brothers of Port Deposit report their tin i can manufacture a most grati ( fying sucee.-s this season ; no i complaint of a single can proving i fault}' having yet reached them, of the ' tens of thou-wnd they have turned out and are daily turning out from their factory. And we caLnot comprehend how it were possible that any faulty cans could escape after being put through their nevfr process of testing under hot water by compressed air which subjects every c an to a pressure or 30 pounds to the square inch. If there is the smallest aperture or a flaw stopped temporarily with rosin the hot water softens it. and the air bursts out showing the defective spot., although so minute perhaps that the naked eye could not discover it La-t season they tested by the process in common use by having an inspect or to examine carefully every can. and the result proved very unsatis factory. A number of the cans prov ing faulty after having been fillel with goods. Under the present hot water and air pressure test if a can is not strongly soldered it will burst. This is an important manufactory and the enterprising proprietors should receive a most cordial support from our canners. If we can produce the best vegetables in the country, , manufacture the cans and process the goods fitting them for the table, ; and ali accomplished cm the spot, it may be said, where raised, this three fold operation will redound to the wealth of the county and add to the , prosperity of the whole people. Ev ery stage in the business is aproduc , live industry, there being no middle men employed ; and this is the tru ■ road to wealth which consists in universal prosperity, or work for ail ' at good wages. If twenty five per cent of the solid grain growing indust ry of tiie country were devoted to the production of fruits, vegetables and grasses, and canneries and evaporat ors in every neighborhood, the agri cultural wealth of the country would 1 be more than doubled. TUlien, oh when will our farmere study their business and venture to improve on it so as to 1 double their profit, lighten their mus- : cuiar toil and increase their mental \ activity? TJio Largest Cabbage Grower In the World. W. M. Johnson & Co of Chicago use upward of 5000 acres of land for growing cabbages. Last year they < manufactured 19,000 barrels of Sour- ■ krout besides shipping 457 car loads i of cabbages to Eastern Markets. i Such statements should cause cult- i ivators of the soil to pause and think. With 2.0i ! 0,000 lonsumers lying with- < in a radius of 50 miles, and the best < of land for such products, why cannot . they help to supply this large market, i with a portion of this heavy, bulky < produce, that is shipped all the way i from Chicago, and finds a renumera 1 1 ive market for it, right on the borders ] of our own fields that are kept rais- < ing meagre crops of grain at starva. ( tion prices ? The only answer possi- I ble is that old fogyisrn has bound our farming class so firmly in his heavy chains that they are helpless to make ' the slightest yari.atiou from methods 4 acquired in boyhood—scarce a par ticle adyance except so much as new machinery and implements compel- * led! i] The New it arriage Law. The new law which goes into effect in Pennsylvania on October Ist. re q i r s all persons desiring to be mar ried by a justice or clergyman to pro cure a license from the Clerk of the C"iirt, fur which a fee of fifty cents will be charged. In procuring the license the following questions have to be answered under oath or alfirma. tion : 1. Full name of man. 2. Full name of woman. 3. Relationship of the parties, either by blood or mar riage. 4. Age of the man. 4. Age of the woman. 5. Residence of the woman. 6- Parents name—man. 7. I’areots name —woman. 8 . Guard an’s name—man. 9. Guardian’s n:-me women. 10. Consent of parents or guardian. 11. Date of death of man’s former wife, if any. 12. Date of death of woman’s former husband, if any. 13. Date of divorce of man at any time. 16. Date or divorce of woman at any time. 17. Color of parties. 18. Occupation of man. 19. Occupation of woman. Some of the interrogatories will be embarrassing in sp cial cases, but the law is inex orable and must be answered The Clerk of the Court will be liable to a fine if he fails to enforce the law to the letter and parties answering false lv will be subject to the penalty of perjury. The above questions have only to be sworn or affirmed to be fore the Clerk by the would he husb and, the wife prospective not having to appear in the matter at all. A good many Marylanders have been in the habit of going to Pa., to get married, but it will not be so con venient in future, and the trade will doubtless decline. ; The Great Yacht Kaos. Two matches were sailed between the American yacht Puritian and the English yacht Gencsta, in New York bay for the prize silver cup, the Puri tan winning in both races. The first race was on Monday last, with a light wind,the Puritan beating the Genesta 16 minutes and 19 seconds. The sec ond race was sailed on Wednesday with a stiff wind and rough sea, the American yacht crossing the line only one minute and thirty-eight seconds ahead of the English cutter, so little that the race might be called a tie, but it keeps the prize cup in America.

Henry Ward Beecher has accepted an invitation to deliver an eulogy on General Grant at tiie public memor ial services to beheld in Boston. “I was never hurried alive,” said an old clerk, relating his experiences, but I once worked a week in a store that did not advertise. When I came out my head was almost as white as you see it Solitary confine ment did it.’’— Gincinalti Gazette. An elephant connected with a cir cus in Philadelphia broke lo se on Monday,andcreated great excitement lie was fi; ally secured after tossing into the air and severely injuring a young man named John lvimberline, of Altona, Pa. The police declined to assist in the animal’s recapture. Commonplace people are content to walk for life in the rut made by their predecessors, long after it nas become so deep that they cannot see to the right or left. 'I hi-keeps them in ig norance and darkness, but it saves them the trouble of thinking or ac J ,ing for themselves. The man who says, •‘I never split my ticket” is one of these. General Grant’s family appear to be amply provided for. The mort. gage of S6O,UUO upon the Grant man sion was paid oIT by friends of the family, it is said, during the General’s illness- The royalty from his Mem oirs will amount to $250,000 and be sides this there is the $250,000 fund, raised for General Grant, which was assigned to his wife, and which yields an annual income of $16,000, guaran anteed. Congress will also vote Mrs. Grant a pension of $5,000 and prob ably’ the General’s half-pay of $5,500 for one year. So that altogether Mrs. Grant’s income will bo $40,000 or $50,00 a year.
