Carrolic Aciu mk FuEsKaviKu Bodies It is stated that Prot. Gulllery has demonstrated anew the powerful antiseptic properties of car t>olic acid in some additional eynerimentslatelv made. He enveioiwd a lresh corpse in a cloth saturated with a solution containing two per cent, of the acid, and after an interval of four or five days poured more of the solution over the body. By this treatment putrefaction was entirely prevented, the body after six months exhibiting no signs of decomposition, and being but slightly altered in appearance. At the Morgue in Paris a solution containing one twentieth of one per cent, of carliolic acid sprinkled over the bodies arrested putrefaction even during the heat of summer. Ghlorine had previously proved ineffectual to disinfect the atmosphere of the dead house. 1 he New Political Pow er?In rogard to the new and rising political power in the west, among the rural population, it may be stated Uiat scarcely two years have eUpsod since the first grange, or lodge of the Order of the Patrons of Husbandry was organized in the state or Iowa, and now granges are to be found in almost every community of farmers, in twenty two states of the union, and the aggregate membership is estimated at 1,*J0,0U0. In Iowa, they claim 166,000 patrons, while then are said t? be still a larger number in Illinois. Ix the Sandwich Iolards afl classes of people?the natives and foreigners alike?are said to be anxious for the negotiation of a rieiproelty treaty with the United States. They think it will give a decided impetns to commerce between this country and theirs, and lu this opinion San Francisco merchants agree. The Hawaii mis are willing to code to the United states a naval station there in return for the treaty.

Two Additional Kailroads Through Nkw Jersey?The railroad legislation in New Jtrsey in the passage of the "free railroad bill" is likely to result in two additional lines to the P> n* sylvama line throughtout that state.

The survev for the Nation al air-.ine, it is stated, is a Traction over ten m !c-i shorter than the Pennsylvania line. Al?out twenty miles of this road has been grad ed, and the work of construction will soon com mence. The law requires Its completion tn two years. More recentlv the '-New Jersey rail road company" alleged to be in the inter *st ol the Pennsylvania companv, have orgttiiiM, and the survey of that portion of the line ex- I tending to Bound Brook has been Hied. In many places It is little mere than 100 feet from the rocte of the National line, and it is intend- | ed to l>e parallel with it. Both start from al most the same point on the Delaware, al>ottt four m 1 ?? al ove Trenton, and run side by side to found Brook. It is the intenthm of the' New Jtrsey railway company to continue this par alleln-m ami to construct a line, as declared, to the city of Newark, where they will connect With their ro ids already established. A Mtrdfrocb Somnambulist.?In Candia, New Hampshire, Monday night, a mysterious attempt was made t-> murder a boy fifteen year." or age, named John Emerson, at the house of Charles Hone, a farmer. A noise alarmed M>me of the family about midnight, when young Emerson was found in bed quite iusenslhle, with three terrible gashes upon his head ami face. inflic*ed with an axe, which was found on the floor. There is slight prospect of his recav try. The assassin obtained an entrance through a window and escaped the same wav. Som- of the neighbors think the act was committed by a boy about the same age, named Fit*, while asleep. Fit* is a somnambulist, and lias fre quently gotten up in his sleep, and one night last we?-k he was found in the attic of a neigh bor's house fast a-loep on the floor, with a largf l>road-axe by his side.
