J This is to certify that I have this day tested a burn ing lluid or oil, with reference to its Lability to ex plosion. The oil was introduced into a test tul»e, the tube partly immersed in water and heat was applied. The waier w as raised to the boiling point, and tlie heat was continued until the temperature of the oil in the tube was 207 deg. Fahrenheit. Flame was ap plied to the mouth oi the tube, hut there was not sufficient evolution of vapor to take tire. From the test I should regard the oil in question as perfectly safe for household use. when employed with ordinary care. Signed, H. T. CUMMINGS, mand&wlm Assaycr.

A few <layS since Mr. Wilson of Iowa intro duced a bill in the House, supplemental to the ^construction act of the last Congress which was passed by a strict party vote 117 to 27. ’ The Sherman bill, as it passed in its amend ed form, so far as actual reconstruction i'» concerned, was rather permissory than per emptory, and did not provide definitely for carrying its provisions into effect; the new bill of Mr. Wilson simply supplies this defi ciency, so that the President, provided he is disp jsed to perform his duties and enforce the provisions of the first bill, has no reason able excuse for interposing a veto. The ob jections that he urged against the first bill do not lie against this, that having already be come a law. This hill merely provides for a speedy res toiation of the rebel States under the former bill, and tends to limit the period of military rule. It directs the commanding general in each military district to cause a registration to be made before September 1st, of all per sons proper to vote, and who shall take an oath of sincere attachment to the United States government and the Union: when the registration is made the ceneral shall order an election, within thirty days, of delegates to a constitutional convention, which shall form a constitution to be submitted to a vote of the iieople. On the approval by Congress of the constitution, the representatives of the State are to be admitted to Congress. Under it the path of restoration is easy. When the bill of Mr. Wilson reached the Senate, Mr. Trumbull of Illinois, chairman ot the Judiciary Committee, introduced a sub stitute, which docs not differ materially from Mr. Wilson’s except that it is fuller and goes farther into details. In the registration of voters under the act of March 2d, it is provid ed in Mr. Trumbull’s bill that the oath requir edshall be to the following effect, of the per sons registered: I do hereby solemnly swear, or affirm, that I am not excluded from the right to vote by the 5th and fitli sections of said act to provide for the more effectual government of the rebel States; that I w^ll support the Constitution and obey the laws of the United States; that I will to-thc best of my ability encourage all oth ers to do the same. So help me God. This bill also defines the numbers constitut ing the conventions to frame constitutions, lav ing the same as in the popular branch of the respective State legislatures, except In Virgin ia, which is to have the same number as the popular branch contained prior to the war, or belore West Virginia was separated from it.— When organized the conventions shall first determined by vote whether they will proceed to form Constitutions in accordance with the provisions of March 2d, and if so their work when completed, shall be submitted for ratifi cation to the the registered voters. If ratified at the polls, by ballot, a copy is to be trans mitted to Congress, and if approved by Con gress the State shall be admitted to full rep resentation in that body. The other provis ions of the bill are formal, and not of sufficient general importance to render their reproduc tion in this connection necessary. What the late of Mr. Trumbull's bill may be will be known very soou; if passed and tbe President approves it, the work of reconstruc tion will no doubt go torward speedily; 11 ve toed it is believed Congress will not remain in session to pass it over the Executive objections, but adjourn till October, meantime allowing the rebel States to remain as they aie, thank ing their friend, “A. J.,” for compelling them to stay out In the cold for a season longer. The Financial Sqanll in BoMnn. The Boston papers have been very chary ol their comments upon the disturbance in State street last week. The result of the heavy failure of Mellen, Ward * Co., has been to swamp the First National Bank of Newton ville; to inflict upon the Merchants and State hanks a loss of $800,000 or $900,000 which they are trying to throw upon one another; •to victimize another Boston bank to the tune of $150,000, another of $125,000, another ot $50,000; and to leave various business houses ou„ of pocket to amounts varying from $40,000 downward. The entire loss cannot be much less than $1,500,000. Cause, stock gambling. The matter is fully explained by a Boston correspondent of the New York Times, as follows: Some three or four years ago, a nice new iron store on Congress street was occupied lor the first time by three young men, under the style of Mellen, Ward * Mower, with a cap ital of $30,000, it is-said. They started well, but how sad the ending. The first two years they did a large and prosperous business, be ing agents tor the sale of government securi ties, on which their commissions were large, and as commission stock brokeis they also re ceived an excellent share of that sort of busi ness, which was then in ‘‘lull tiue of success ful experiment.” But a change came over the spirit of their dreams. The sale of gov ernment securities had its run, and their pro fits from that source rapidly declined; the speculation in stocks, which was so rampant iu 1864, became a thing ol the past. Office expenses and cost ol living were both heavy, and something must be done. Mr.Mower re tired from the Arm, and, alter some unfortu nate operations in gold, retired to the Green Mountains, the home of his relatives. Mel len and Y\ ard kept on, and admitted Carter, a Director of the First National Bank at New ton into the firm. Be is reported to have paid in $30,000. “Big things” now began to be talked of. Carter has big ideas. Be was building a big house at Newton; he kept a big spau of horses, and was considered a “big bug.” Be was interested iu the raising of swine; it is said he recently had on bund one hundred big hogs. Be soou conceived of big operations in stocks, and matters were ar ranged tor a big comer on Copper Falls, but tbe thing seemed to hang fire—the brokers were shy, and outsiders could not see why Copiter Falls, which never paid one dividend, should sell at $70. Finally, an “old stager” in Coppers was lound, who thought the thing had gone about far enough, and was willing to “sell short.” Another joined him; between both some 2,000 shares were oversold. Now wus the opportunity, thought Carter, but mon must be used, and that freely, too. The en tire mnds of the Newton First National were absorbed; the funds of the United States Suit-Treasury had been used through the cashier, it is said, at one time as high as $1, 200,000, until suspicion began to rest on him, and he could not go on in that way. It was too much for his nerv ous organization, and was killing him. Bis cash was to be examined—the deficiency was to be made right on examination day.— What was to he done? A large amount of Gold certificates were purchased iu New York, and sent here (how they were paid for, if at all, does not appear.) They were carried to the Merchants' Bank and deposited, and a loan of $(kHi,000 obtained for Mellien, Ward & Co. fhat was something in the way ol working capital to carry on the ‘-comer.” To pet the certificates away from the Merchants’ Bank, Mr. Smith, the Cashier ol the State, was caUefi in. Be requested that the deposi tors be allowed to remove the certificates to tbe Slate Bank. The “point” was not “seen” by the Merchants until Smith stated that the check of Mellen, Ward <ft Co. on that bank was good, and was willing to certify to it which he did, and tbe certificates were re moved, but not to the State Bank. Down they went to the Sub-Treasury, the cashier wishing as he told them, to bridge over the first of ihe month, when he would return them next day. Me had no idea of doing this, how ever, for he was already tired of the game._ Bis wife had found out about it, and it is said a detective was at the time on his track. The certificates once in the treasury office of the Custom-House, the Government cash was made right, the cashier “resigned,” the cer LiuKiica were hui uenverea 10 toe Copper Falls “ring’’ whsn they applied for them the next morning. The jig was up—the checks oi Mellon, AVard & Co, were refused at the banks during the day—the explosion took place, and very fortunately perhaps, (or had the clique again got control of the certificates as they intended, and of the Suit-Treasury cashier, the matter, as had as it is, might have ended worse a month or two hence. I he men who have caused this row arc all young, ami all have now or have had hard-working and frugal ancestors, hut they were not will ing to tread in their footsteps to acquire wealth—a short cut must be resorted to — They thought they had the game in their hands, and wer,; expecting to make the “old fogies” off State street take of their hats to them.— It is possible that State-street may be instru mental in having their heads shaved at Charles town. The father of the Cashier ot the New - ton Dank (who U thought to have known all about the matter) is said to be a cler/yman at Somerville. Carter lived in style at Newton, and moved in the first circles. Smith, ol the Slate Uauk, was keeping bis fast horses, and building a large house at Jamaica Plains. The Directors of the Bank supposed he w as a pru dent and economical young man. Iiartwell the Sub-Treasury Cashier, was keeping up appearances, living in a large bouse with rich merchants for neighbors. Neither ol them have been arrested as yet. Everybody won ders why. State-street has experienced no such financial excitement lietore, aud it will not soon be forgotten. But it seems that only innocent parlies are to suffer. The Treasury reports its cash all right to-day. About a year ago the salary of the Sub-Treasurer was rais ed, Mr. Iiartwell, deeming his pay insufficient. Most of the (icople hereabouts are ot lhe opin ion that the same law which is applied to a hungry woman who steals a ham, ought to be applied to the principals In this case of fraud. M«Ple Sugar and Syrup. Nothing of a saccharine quality is more de licious to most tastes thau pure maple syrup and the sugar crystallized from it. The for ests of our State abound in the noble and cleanly trees which produce It, and nowhere can a maple grove lie made to yield more sap in quantity, or better in quality, tbau our own native sugar orchards. At tbe present high cost of West India molasses aud sugars, it can but be an object to many farm residents to secure as much sweetening from their ma pie trees as possible. Tbe business of col lecting and boiling down the sap comes op portunely, at a time when little or no other farm labor can be carried on—it being too late for sledding and too early for spring op erations. It is a work, too, in which almost all tbe members of an ordinary household, old or young, can participate. Sugar made at such a season, is about clear gaiu; and ii sold, will bring a bigli price. me ocsi, muue ui lapping trees is a mailer of importance. The practice, by some, cf cutting into the tree with an axe, is bat bar ons. Boring with a bit or auger is more to be commended. A few years ago, the Brat tleboro’ (Vt.) Agricultural Club caused an experiment to be made on this subject. A committee, consisting of three persons, was appointed to ascertain by actual experiment the proper size and depth of the bore in tap ping the sugar maple. They accordingly pro ceeded to test this question in tho most thor ough manner, using ali sizes of hits from half an inch to an inch and a half iu diame ter—making each his experiment independ ently of the other—and the result was, that no difference could he perceived—the half inch giving as mnch sap as any other. Each one also tapped several trees, setting two buckets to a tree, with a single spile to each, but bored to different depths, from one la three and a half inches; and the results in this ease were, in every instance, when the weather was sufficiently warm to thaw the tree through, that the flow of sap was In pro portion to the depth of bore; and to make the matter more certain, on deepening iLe shallow bores subsequently, they immediately overtook the others iu quantity. These ex periments were repeated the year following by a different committee with the same gen eral results. In regard to the process of making the su gar, the lollowing is the statement Mr. Woodward made to the Stale Agricultural Society which awarded to him the first pre mium for the best article of inapie sugar: In the first place I make my buckets, tubs and kettles ail perfectly clean. I boil the sap iu a potash kettle set in an arch in such a manner tnat the edge of the kettle is defend ed all around troin the tire. This is continu ed through the day, taking care not to have anything in the kettle that will give color to the sap, and to keep it well skimmed. At night i leave fire enough under the kettle to boil the sap nearly or quite to a syrup by the next morning. 1 then take it out ot the ket tle and strain it through a flannel cloth into a tub, if it is sweet euough, if not, I put it in a cauldron kettle which I have hung on a pole in such a manner that I can swing it on and off the tire at pleasure, and finish boil ing, then strain it into a tub and let it staud till the uext morning. 1 then take this and the syrup in the kettle, and put it all together iu the cauldron, and sugar it off. To clarity 100 pounds ot sugar, 1 use the white of five or six eggs, well beaten, about one quart ot Dew milk and a spoonful of saleratus, all well mix ed with the syrup before it is scalding hot. I keep a moderate tire directly under the caul drou until the scum is all raised, then skiin it off clean, taking care not to let it boil so as to rise iu the kettle before 1 have don? skim ming it; when it is sugared off, leaving it so damp that it will diain a little. I let it re main in the kettle until It is well granulated; I then put it into boxes inane smallest at the bottom, that will hold from fitly to seventy pounds, haviug a thin piece of hoard fitted iu two or three inches aiiove the boitom, which is bored mil ol small holes to let the molasses drain through, which 1 keep drawn off through a tap at the bottom. I put ou top ot the sugar in the box, two or three thicknesses of clean, damp cloth, and over that a hoard well fitted in so as to exclude the air Irom the sugar. After it has nearly done draining, 1 dissolve it and sugar it off' again, going through the same process in clarifying ana draining as before. Tuaxi. Alain* Cl*ver. This is a Swedish variety of clover, recently introduced into this country, through the Department of Agriculture at Washington, which is said to be more nutritious and pro lific than any of our American fodder plants. It is hardy, and as far north as Maine it is sure to yield two full crops in a season. The Superintendent of the experimental Farm connected with the Agricultural Department at Washington, has cultivated it for the last two years, and he reports that it is a success. He says: ‘-The clovers, of which two varie ties were sown, have taken with the ground well. • * The Alsiko is per ennial in its nature, and will prove a great ac quisition to this country, as it produces a very abundaDt crop, and is likely to suit this cli mate.” Mr. Commissioner Newton, in his pamphlet reports to the President, in speaking of the operations and experiments of the experimen tal Farm, lor the past year, 1806,says: “In experimenting with the clovers, the Alsike proved very satisfactory, growing with rank luxuriance in this climate, and remaining green and succulent to a late period in the season. It has been cut three times, and at the present writing (Nov. 15) presents a fine appearance,” What may be suitable for the climate at Washington, may not tie equally successful here in New England. But in the Country Gentleman we notice a letter from Hon. Levi Bartlett, of Warner, New Hampshire, who has had some experience with the Alsike clo ver in that northern region, and he speaks of it as follows: Our common red clovers are considered biennial plants, and give their heaviest yield the two years succeeding the grain crops, with which the seed was sown. But the Alsike lieiug a perennial, does not attain its lull growth and luxuriance till the second or third year alter it Is sown. It shoidd be sown with timothy seed, as it is later in blossoming than red clover, and comes in the season for cut ting with long-leaved grasses. krom some little experience I had with a patch oi it, I think it a fur preterahle forage plant lor all kinds of farm stock than the sev eral varieties of red clovers I have usually grown. For green manuring, I should prefer the large northern or pea-vine clover. •Fudging from the great number of honey bees that visited my Alsike clover ;<atcli, I think it one of the best honey producing plants that can be grown. I should have greatly extended Its cultiva tion if I could have obtained the seed. 1 he two ounces of seed I sowed was scattered over too large a surface, and part of the seed laded to germinate, and the tough-rooted Juno grass finally rooted it out. We know not where the seed in any quan tity may be found. Tuaxi. Bridging tub Mississippi.—We learn from the Chicago Republican that “it is the intention of the corporators of the Illinois and St. Louis Bridge Company, chartered at the late session of the legislature, to commence operations as soon as practicable. The bridge will be one of the grandest works of engineer iug on the continent. It will cost not less than live million dollars—will be built of iron after the latest and most approved designs, and will bo placed at a sufficient altitude to allow the largest steamers to pass under it at high water. Mr. L. B. Boomer of Chicago will have supervision of the work. Several Other Drmges across the Mississippi were char tereilby rhe late legislature; at Hannibal and one at Alton, besides legaliz ing the company already formed to bridge the river at Quincy. Additional time was also given lor the erection of the bridge at Dun leitb. All these gateways, and more, will soon be necessary lor the iron fingers stretch ing out for the rapidly-growing commerce of the mighty West.” JohuNVa n, Jubn.OH, In the various veto messages of President Johnson, he has persistently insisted that the ^ Southern States have not lost any political right by rebellion, that the Southern rebels should not be disfranchised, that their repre sentatives should bo admitted to Congress as though rebellion had never occurred, and that the whole work of reconstruction should bo committed to tliem, to be fixed up to suit their own purposes and caprices, subject only to such conditions as he, in his individual wisdom as commander-in-chief has seen fit to impose. This is President Johnson as he it, since he “swung around the circle” and fell on|the dis loyal side. Opposed to this view we now in troduce President Johnson as he mat, before his patriotism had burned low and he threw himself into the embrace of those who at one time would have paid a bounty for his bead.— On the 21st of April, 1865, six days after ha was sworn in as the successor of the murdered Lincoln, Mr. Johnson, alluding to the war for the Union, said to a delegation of his fellow citi zens: ; .1" !'? a11 t,li’ c*rnage and devastation? It is that treason might be put down and traitors punished. 1 lieietore I say that traitors should take aback sent 111 the work of restoration. If there be but five thousand men in Tennessee, loyal to the Constitution, loyal to freedom lot al to justice, these true and laithful men should control the work of reorganization and reform ation absolutely. I say that the traitor has ceased to he a citizen, aud in joining the rebel lion hxs become a public enemy. He forfeited his right to vote with loyal men when he re nounced his citizenship and sought to destroy the Government. My judgment is that ha should be subjected to a severe ordeal beioro he is restored to citizenship.” The patient of 1865 is the patient of 1867.— Congress has simply administered a dose of Dr. Johnson's pills. Let not that distinguish ed practitioner go back on bis own prescrip tion. Keeeat Publications. Memoirs and Cobrespondench or Madame Kecamikk. Translated from the French and edited by Isaphene M. Luyster. 12mo. pp. 408, Boston: Roberts Brothers. Beauty is a born queen, and counts her sub jects every where. In all grades of life, in all lands and ages there have been women whohy the sheer force of persona) attractions have ex ercised a surprising and irresistible ascend ancy over all who come within the sphere of their fascinations. Among such women few are more eminent or remarkable than the ono whose memoirs are here presented to us. Duriug her long life of more thau seventy years she continued to exercise over all who came in connection with her the same controlling Charm, Her biographer says in reference to this remarkable influence: It did not lie in her beauty and wealtli alone; for she lost one while time dimmed the other. Nor was it due to powerol will;for she was not grout intellectually, and, had she been a per son of strong convictions, she never would have been so universally popular. As it was, sho pleased persons of every shade of opinion and principle. Her instinctive coquetry can part ly account for her sway over men, but not over women. Whal then, was the secret of ht?r influence? It lay in the subtile power of a marvellous tact. This tact though uurtured and ripened by experience, was not the off spring of art. It was an effect, not a cause; not simply the result of an intense desire to please, regulated by tine intuitive perceptions, but of higher characteristics, such as natural sweetness of temper, kiudness of heart, and forgetfulness of self. In short, she liad received the gift of fascina tion at her birth, and it was as natural for her to charm as to breathe. Her conquests were nearly always enduring. Sainte Beuve pret tily said of her that she brought the art of friendship to perlection. Coquettish, she was seldom capricious; aud the meu who began by loving her passionately usually ended bv be coming her true friends, and she deserved their friendship by the constancy and faithfulness of her own. The material for the present volume has been chieiiy drawn front an imperfect biography of Mmc. Recauiicr written by a ineoe of her hus band, and published in Faris in 1830. It has been carefully revised and added to by the pres ent editor aud translator, and is lor the first time presented in an English dress. It con tains fewer details of the personal history of Mme. Reeamior and fewer extracts trout her own correspondence than we could have desir ed, but is occupied chiefly with the letters to her of Madame de Stael, Chateaubriand, Bal lanclte, aud other eminent persons of tho day, with whom she was ou terms of intimate friendship.— Those of Chateaubriand in particular, are nu merous and from their confidential character, and the long period over which they extend, have almost the interest of a biography of that distinguished man. The whole collection is valuable as offering a very vivid illustration of the political and social condition of France in tho first half of the pre ent century. This, added to tho personal interest which attaches to the subject of the memoir, is likely to gain for the liook a wide circle of readers. Bailey & Noyes have it. The \Vobd. The House of Israel.

It is written with special reference to youthful readers, a class that Miss Warner has a happy faculty of interesting. Much time aud labor have been expended upon the book in the careful examination and comparison of au thorities, and in the searching out of a great mass of information hearing upon the familiar life of ancient oriental nations.

The Earl of Carnarvon said the delegates had been apiwintod by large majorities of both branches of the Legislature of Nova Scotia, with full powers to represent that province at the conference which lramed the l>ase9 of the bill. The amendment was withdrawn, and the bill was theu read a third time and passed. An Archtralogirnl t'tllrrli#a> The Sound Tablt gives information in regard to a very valuable collection of antiquities re cently brought to this country lrom Northern Europe. It says the collection belongs to a fentleman wlio was lung a resident of tho 'russian island of Bugen in the Baltic, near the roast ol l'omeninia. Though the flint ar ticles of Bugen have swelled the collections of Europe, their unmlier is not yet altogether ex hausted, and some of them are still found, either in the aneieut barrows (Hunengaber) or on tlie suriace, like most ol our Indian stono weapons and utensils. Bugen is supposed to be the island mentioned by Tacitus where the Germanic god.loss Hertba was worshipped. Most of tlie articles composing the collection were found on the island; but Sweden, Nor way, the Banish isUnds, Schleswig and Hol steiti have also furnished many specimens. Ihe Unit implements, which form by far the most important part ol the collection, consist ot knives,saws, daggers, arrow and -pear heads, chisels, and a great variety of cells or unperforated axes. Among the most interest ing articles of flint must be counted those that are in an unfinished stale and serve to illns trate the process of manufacture. In this col lection one may trace tlie progress in the man ufacture of the urticles through all inter mediate stages, from the rude piece, to w hich only a few strokes bad been applied, to tho highly polished axe or the delicately serrated sawing implement; even the lumps ol flint, from which the knives were split, are not wanting.
