Tlie oil was introduced Into a test tube, the tube partly immersed in water and heat was applied. Tho water was raised to the boiling point, and the 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, but there was not sufficient evolution of vapor to take tire. From tho test I should regard the oil in question as perfectly safe for household use, when employed with ordinary care. Signed, H. T. CUMMINGS, mar7d<£wlm Assayer.

Monday Morning, March 18, 1867. A Startling DiNCOvrry. The Democratic organ in this city lias made the startling discovery that our “Government has been revolutionized,” and that “the tact” is * confessed by high Repubtean authority. To ptovc the correctness of this wonderful revelation it quotes two New York papers which it says “are two as able papers as there are in the Republican party.” These two papers, so “able" and so orthodox in their republican doc trines, are the Commer cial Advertiser, which swung clear around the circle with Andrew Johnson, and has been one of his most obsequious supporters, ready to engage in any amount of executive dirt-eating, and to hiss whenever “A. J.” was spit upon, no matter by whom, on what occa sion or at what distance removed from the expectorant act. The other “able” Republican paper is the Times, owned and edited by Mr. Raymond—really an able paper, but one whose soundness Republicans are hardly willing to admit, since its editor and controlling spirit did almost everything required by the circle swinging processs, even to being a chief spirit in Mr. Johnson s Philadelphia convention where he became the conlerre of Wood, Pen dleton and Vallandigham; participated in the New York Democratic State Convention, and hesitated in his downward movement oidy when required to swallow the pill—copper pure and simple—prepared by the political doctors who made up and controlled the lat ter body. No matter, however, for all this.— We suppose the Argus feels as Thurlow Weed did in iuiti-masouic times, when it was for his interest to continue the impression that Morgan had been murdered by the masons, and to this end he pulled otf the bushy whiskers from the taco of a decomposing body found in the water, saying, “he will make a good enough Morgan till al ter election.” The Times and Ad vertiser are able enough Republican papets with it,for the purpose of giving forte to its owu article, but we doubt it intelligent readers will be any more cheated by such a deception, than the intelligent people ofNew York were, by Weed’s artful dodge, into the belief that the swolen, mutilated mass of corruption taken from tho lake was the veritable whiskerless Morgan. Because the Commercial Advertiser quotes approvingly the Times, to the effect that the Reconstruction act is “at war with the Con stituti >n and hostile to the dictates of a wise and considerate statesmanshipthat “wher ever the right may be, the power of this gov ernment rests with Congress;” that “that body overrules alike the vetoes of the Presi dent and the deeisions of the Supreme Courtthat “all the limitations to the exer cise of power contained in the Constitution, the opposition of the 1'resident and the de cisions of the Supreme Court of the United States, have been overridden and set aside by Congress,” and that “thus has our vaunted limn of government been revolutionized by war,” it no more follows that Congress has done wrong or exceeded by one hair breadth its rightful and constitutional pre rogatives, than it follows the Times and Advertiser are “able Republican papers,” or that the Democracy of to-day is even distant ly related to the Democracy of Jefferson and Jackson. The former of these eminent men regarded the Supreme Coutt, with its life tenures and irresponsibility to the sovereign power of the nation, as the most undemo cratic and monarchical element in our super structure of government, and the latter in sisted that neither the Supreme Court nor any other tribunal was authorized to pre scribe Constitutional limitations for the action of either Congress or the Executjye, but that each branch of the government had the right to read the Constitution and interpret its du ties and prerogatives lor itself. It is very queer to hear professed Demo crats calling in question the rights and powers ol the people—the people being aloue sov ereign in this country; and their power is called in question in questioning the acts of a Congress fresh from their hands, especially when its acts are so plainly the echo of the popular will. Conservative, slave-loving lo gics may croak and howl, but the people are omnipotent and their will must be the law. The time has gone by,thank lleaveu, wheu the people are to be frightened from doing acts of justice and right,—when they are to be held back through fear that acting in har mony with their best instincts will upset the fabric ot government. The same sovereign people who rose in their might to put down u gigantic rebellion waged agaiust the nation's liberty and life, will see to it that the life and liberty saved by them shall be preserved, and no power under Heaven will change their fixed and determined purpose in this regard. To this end they have a right to insist, and they will insist, that dangerous repels shall lie disarmed and that loyal men shall be armed, not of weapons of war in the former case nor with such weapons in the latter; but the weapon to be taken from the rebel and se cured to the loyal man, irrespective of class, race, caste or color, is the only legitimate wea pon with which to decide all peaceful battles —the freeman's vote. The loyal men ot this nation—the men who remained loyal when treason lifted its bloody hand to grapple the throat of liberty and constitutional law—have decreed, and they have rightfully decreed, that the men who slew our sons and brothers, who were responsible for the horrors of Andersonvitle and Salisbury, and whose rebellion imposed a burden of thousands of millions upon the nation, opened a million of new made graves, and filled the land with sorrow and lamenta tion, shall never be permitted to accomplish with the ballot what they failed to do with the bullet; that their “lost cause” shall never be regained so long as the sun shines. How far Criticism may go. In this world, and especially in this teeming age of it, when there is so much to criticise and so many ready and willing to engage in tho work whether they are qualified for it or not, it is quite desirable that all should know how sharp the pen of criticism may be made and to what extent it may he used. In the first place we should hear in mind that there is a very wide difference between a just criti cism and indiscriminate puffing, for the latter has become rife in the land $nd quite sickening in its details, while the former is more spar ingly used, and not so well paid for. An interesting case has recently been decid ed in the Court of tho Queen’s Bench, which throws some light on tho subject, and shows to what extent criticism may be carried with out rendering the critic liable to penalties as l lie publisher of a libel. Dr. Straus last spring brought an action for libel against the Athe nian in based oil a critique appearing in that journal on a work called “The Old Ledger.” This book was said by the Athenaeum to he characterized liy “vulgarity, profanity and in delicacy, bad French, bad German and bad English, and abuse of persons living and dead.” This was severe criticism, but the publisher of the Athenaeum considered it no more than the hook deserved. He admitted the publication and pleaded justification. The plaintiff’s coun cil was too shrewd to bring the hook in evi dence to enable the Court to decide whether the criticism was just; hut the council for tho defendant read some extracts from it which convinced the opposing council of the propriety of withdrawing the case from the jury and al lowing it to drop. The Athenaeum commented on the result in a very trenchant stylo. It said: “We found the hook abominable, and said so. Our read ers were satisfied with our verdict, since it is alleged that the sale was instantly arrested. It seems a tew extracts from the book con vinced the Bench, the Bar, tho Jury and ev erybody in Court and even Sergeant Bullen tine hiu self that the case was hopeless. He even begged in deference to hi s own feelings as a gentleman and to tho credit of his pro fession to be allowed permission to abandon the case. It would have been well for him if he had read the book before he commenced the libel suit—a duty which he certainly owed to himself, to the Bench, to the Bar, and to tho community generally." But it seems that Dr. Straus was not satisfied with the sud den close of this and brought mother suit, hav ing, we suppose engaged other counsel of more easy professional virtue. Extracts from the book convinced the Court and jury that the criticism was just which hud been levelled at it. The Lord Cliiel Justice thus detiued the law on the point: ‘‘It was ot tlic last importance to literature and through literature, to good taste and good ly feeling, to morality aud to religion, that works pulitished tor general perusal siiuuld be sueli as were calculated to improve, and not to demoralize the pu lie uund; aud therefore n was of vast impoi lance tiiat criticism, so long as it was fair aud reasonable and just, should be allowed the utmost latitude, aud that tin* most unsparing censure of works which were fairly subject to it should not be held libellous. A man who publishes a book challenges criti cism; he rejoices in it if it tends to his praise, aud if it is likely to lead to increase the circu lation of his work—and therefore lie must sub mit to it if it is adverse, so long as it is not prompted by malice or characterized b.V such reckless disregard of lairiicss as ludicates mal ice towards its author. The above is a clear statement of the rule that should be observed, and protects the writ er xs far as protection is merited. The pub lisher or author ot au obscene or scandalous book merits the severe lashing of a just crit cism. \V e are all aware that there are pub lished son.e books not quite bad enough to ex pose the authors or publishers to the penalties of tlie law, and yet their tendency is to demor alize the community. Such cases can only be dealt with by criticism, aud no matter how se vore it is so long as it is not p romp ted by mal ice or characterized by such reckless disre gard of fairness as indicates malice towards the author. The interest of the public demands that tho critic should be allowed the utmost latitude. Lot him “cry aloud aud spare not,” iu all such eases. Wlii'e his withers are un wrung let the galled jades wince. • ■.labor and Capital. Profits are the product of labor and capital combined. Mere capital is worth only the current rate of Uterest. Invested capital, not secured but risked and managed by the owner, ought to pay more. It ought to pay the interest which might be obtained by simp ly loaning it, aud a reasonable compensation tor the time devoted to its management, with a margin for extra risks. The two latter ele ments are difficult to determine and capital ists ;ire accustomed to estimate them vary lib erally. What is left, alter these deductions frrm the gross product of labor and capital, is wages. People sometimes say there is no real conflict between employers and employed, and in certain respects there Is none; hut in other and very important respects there is an irrepressible conflict, winch in some couutrie3 is assuming portentous dimensions. The div ision of the profits is a question upon wnicli these two classes have always been and al ways will be at variance, so long as they re main distinct classes. In England, where a large proimrtion of the workingmen look forward to no change in their condition, expect neither in tbeir own peisons nor in the persons ot the Jr children to become employers, the conflict is organiz ed. The employers are and have long been in close alliance. The tactical manoeuvre by which they usually seek to compel submis sion to tbeir terms, is called a Lock-out— is to say, they lock the doors of their mills and factories, and try to tame their opponents by starvation, just as thekeepersof wild beasts deal with their troublesome animals, lint the workingmen, gaining slowJy in intelligence through centuries, have discovered the advan tages of combination, and the United King dom is at last covered with Trades-Unions.— Their lavorite manoeuvre is the Strike, which needs no explanation. There are 21Wot these Unions in Loudon', 97 in Manchester, 57 in Liverpool, 00 in Sheffield, 42 in Birauiigliaiu, 50 in Glasgow, 45 in Dublin. Due id these societies, the Carpenters and Joiners', was founded in June, 2600, aud rose within a year to a membership of 016, distributed in 30 branches, with a capital of $1,0001 • In 1805, the Society of Carpenters and Joiners num bered 104 branches and 5,070 members, and bad a fund ot $75,000. It was represented in 04 towns, and in 52 of those towns it had gain ed important advantages tor its memoers within the year, sometimes an increase ol pay, sometimes a reduction of time, sometimes both. The Trades-Unions in the kingdom number now over half a million ot memoers, with an annual revenue ol »5,u0u,000 aud a reserve amounting to very neatly the same sum. These funds are chiefly used to sustain workingmeu on a strike, or to enable them to hold out agaiust a lock-out. Now men who have the capacity to organ ize so effective a resistance as this to what they consider uiyu»t treatment, are surely ca pable of organizing tor other purposes. Bod ies of men, able and willing to raise sucU a iund as we have named, to he tattered away In squabbles about wages aud lime, are cer tainly able to raise money for some better purpose. In this country, where einpljyers and employed are continually changing pla ces, where almost every employer remembers the time when he was dependent on bis daily labor, and every workingman who has any sjieeial capacity knows perlectly well that within a lew years lie wifi probably be paying instead ol' receiving wages, the parties are ca llable of regarding questions at issue betweeu them with more equanimity than could oth erwise be expected. Nevertheless strikes are not uncommon among us, and lock-outs are beginning to be talked about. Is there not some way in which these wasteful methods of adjusting conflicting claims may be avoided? What would be the result, for instance, if workingmen should employ themselves? The experiment has been tried in various places, and notably by the iron moulders of Troy, New York. A little more than a year ago, prompted by a lock-out of eight weeks’ duration, the moulders opened their subscrip tion books, raised the money to put up a new foundry, purchased machinery and tools, coal and iron, aud the right to manutacture one or two patent stoves, all for cash, and went to work ou tlio 10th July last. The number ol stockholders ami employees is 44. All who can, work by the piece, and tbeir wages aver age $25 or $30 a week. They have paid off regularly every Saturday night, have paid their superintendent, and own now properly worth $30,000 or $31,000. During (lie dull season in winter, these establishments are usually closed for three or four months. The Troy foundry lias not been closed. These men have an advantage over moststove found ers : they can afford to work at a lose. Work ing at a loss with them means only a slight reduction of their wages; with employers who are not also laborers, it means ruin and bankruptcy. This, after all, is the cheapest and most satisfactory way of harmonizing the relations of labor and capital. It is iii this direction that iuteHigent workingmen ought to look. It should be added that the other founders in 1 roy have shown no jealousy ot the new foundry, and have not suffered by its competition. ■•Mr*, It is about time our friends who desire to add one month to our growing sea son, were preparing their hot-beds. By means of these, they may have plants which are as large and forward the first of May, as they would be the first of Juue if the seed were planted at the ordinary time in the open ground. As all may not know just how to make a hot bed, we will ven ture a few simple directions tor their benefit Take, or make, a good strong box w'thout top or bottom as large as you waut the bed to be. Let the ends siope to the front, which should be but half the height of the back. Have a window sash or sashes glazed, that will exactly fit the top of the frame. It should be so light as to keep the rain out. In order to make the tied, place the frame where it is to stand, having a southeastern aspect With a poiuted stick mark the ground ail around the inside of the itame. Kemovo the frame, and dig out this space about eighteen inches deep. Ttis done, replace the frame, which will rest immediately on the edge of the pit. Now procure some (resb stable manure—lion e droppings intermixed with the straw- nS is thebest-and place it in a heap near where you are making the bod. Shake every or • j I t’uM well topeices, mixing the long with the short. Let this heap stand till it ferments briskly; then turn and shake It with the fork piece-meal making a new heap of it near by. When this heap ferment?, • n J it will steam in a lew days, Itegin to make the bed by shakiii" every fork-full into the pit, suffering no lumps to go iu; and let tbe bed rise in all its parts together as much as possible. Press tbe mass down suantly with tbe fork as you proceed. When it is thus tilled to within nine inches °ll1le toP ot the front part of the frame, level it oil and let stand a day for fermentation commence. Have ou band the requisite q mutuy 01 light, rieb soil; and on the eusu o aj i eitosii this on the manure bed about T Tu\J"PU'- Put °“ tl“- ^ sash i lie. mk « Kmaia 0,1 ,wenty-lour hours, flien take them off and stir the ea„h with your hand* which are the oaf, tools to bo used thereafter in a hot-bed. The earth should bo level,’not siopin- like the glass. Tbe glass slopes in order to" meet the sun somewhat vertically, and to shed the rain. The dirt which was taken out of tlia pit should be drawn up around the outside of the frame, so that no water may lie near it, and the inside moisture may be retained. Tbe bed is now ready for seed. Sowing seed in the hot-bed. Take off tbe sashes or lights, and make little drills with your finger from the back to the front of the bed, half or three fourths of an inch deep. Make them equi distant, parallel and straight. Drop tbe seeds along tbe drill regularly and pretty thick, as they are designed for trans planting whilst sinuii and young, Cover the drills neatly, pressing the earth with a nar row strip of board upon the seeds. Write the names on little bits of shingle with a com mon lead pencil, and stick them down at the end of each row. Put on the lights. See that they tit well; and “then (says Cobbett,) look U|>on your Spring work as happilv begun.” Management of hot-beds. The main prin ciple is always to give as much air as the plants will endure; taking advantage of eveiy mild daw to remove the sashes and give the soil air, oven before the seeds begin to break ground. Give air to tbe bed every day, un less it be very cold. The usual way of giving air, is, by bits of board cut like we Iges broad at one end. and coming to a point at the oth er. Each light is lilted up, either at the back or front of the frame as the wind may be, and the wedge or tdter, as it is called, is put in to hold the sash up. Hut if more air be wanted, raise tlie lights higher, and on a fine day take them entirely off. UTkon ♦ --a .1 _ -j Hll UI>OI > C5, they will soon tell you about air; for, if they have uot enough, they will grow up long-legged, and will have small seed leaves; and indeed, if too much deprived of ai-, they will droop and die. Let them grow strong rather than tail; short stems, hroad seed leaves, very green—they are the signs of good plants and or proper management. • *• Remem ber, (says Cobbett again,) out of a thousand failures in hot-bed culture, nine hundred and ninety-nine arise from giving too little air.'1 Wittering the hot-betl. When it is necessa ry to water, take oil tbesasbes, one at a time, and water with a watermg pot that that does notponrout heavily; water just at sunset, and theu shut down the lights. The heat will rise from the fermenting bed, and the plants will grow prodigiously. Protecting the hot-bed. Should high winds or very sharp frosts set in, protect the bed with straw or moss; and if a cold northwest wind, make a small skreen ol boards or bush es ot some sort, Itussia mats, or old grass bags, or on oid carpet should be kept to cover the sashes with, iu case of hail, suow or very cold weather. Should these uot be at haud, use straw, hay or moss. The bed should contain plants of lettuce, peppergiass, radishes, tomatoes, cabbages, tur nips, peppers, cucumbers, melons, squashes, aud if you choose .several sorts ot flowers, which may be transplanted to the open ground, as soon as the weather becomes suitable.

M. **». Francis Is the name ot a tributary of the St. John river about three hundred miles Irom its mouth. It lorms the boundary between Maine and New Brunswick Irom its mouth to Boundary Lake, a distance of thirty miles. It is nearly or quite one hundred miles by the usual route bom Presque Isle to the St. Fran cis, aud our friends who think they have reached the juinping-otf place when tiiey ar rive at our illage, will lind they a.e yet Some distance irom tiial uncertain loc ility. There are two routes by which one can reach the upper st. John. The shortest is via Ashland, tneuce over the Fish Kiver road to Fort Kent, hut tee road is usually in bad condition, and what is gaiued in distance is lost in horse flesh. The road through Caribou village to Vioiette Brook, thence up the St. John through the Madawaskaor trench settlement to Fort Kent, is much traveled aud usually in good condition. TOIL ncuk, mh; uiwoi nuiur'iiv Village III Maine, is situated at the mouth ol Fish diver, and has made hut little progress since our first visit seveu years ago. This wa-> toiiuer ly a military post, when there were tears of invasion* from eur biuenose neighbors, and Uncle bam was actually induced to build a tort and block-house,and keep a watchful eye liritiskwurd to guard against a surprise. Tho block-house still stands upon the bank of the river, hut it ts tenantless, no occasion having occurred to test its invulnerability, there was a piece of artillery left in charge of a U.

An outrage so gross could not be silently submitted to by the good people of Fori Kent plantation, and it was leared an internecine war would be the consequence, but tlie matter was referred to a legal tribu nal and happily terminated without the loss of blood. Its contiguity to the Province ol New l.rans wick and Canada renders it an easy matter to carry on smuggling, and as rqprc or lessof this business is carried on along the entire boun dary we presume Fort Kent forms no excep tion to the rule.
