The new one-dollar Treasury notes is-atied under the recent silver bill, and which are so badly needed in business oirclea, are now being printed at the rate of forty thousand a week. Eighty thousand fivea are being produced in tha same time.  The twoa will be ready shortly. Severai. days ago, in Ohio, a man by the name of Wheat, was married to a woman by the name of Corn, and the choir astonished tb� oatirea by einging "What shall the harvest be." The bride fainted and the groom has not been heard from aince. He probably has gom to "Gather in the Sheaves." Akd now Mr. Cleveland has been putting his foot in it by writing a private letter which the recipient gave to tbe press. It was all about Senator Ingalls, and as it aimply expressas the average democratic opinion of that diatingnished gentlemen, we don't see why Mr. Cleveland should be 80 angrj over ita publication. Hesrt George says that "Democrats, so called, aiti beginuing to know something abont real Oeiaucratia principles. Roger Q. Mills ia tbe last comyaign was not afraid to announce himself a free trader pure and simple, without any spots of tariff reform upon bim." Tbe free traders are on top io the Democratic party, and tb� "tariff reformers" might aa well throw off their disguise and follow Miila. Under the head of "The Winter of Our Content," Charles Dudley Wainer ooutri-butea to the December issue of Harper's Magazine an aitiole descriptive of the Climate of Southern California. He is careful not to encourage wild hopes and more than intimates that people who enjoy a broiling sun, or an air tiebt room in winter will Qod the atmosphere rather chilly, but on the whole he inctiues to the oonvicfioo that the earthly paradise is located somewhere near San Diego.

The annouDoemant of the assignment was made from the rostrum of tbe Stock Exehange about 2 o'clock and caaaad a profound sensatiou. The firm i* ons ol the oldest in tbe aity, and was in business at Third and Chestnut streets, prior to ita rsmoval to Fifth atraet, fur many years. Tbe firm o{ B. E. Jamison & Co., is an old eaublisbed house, ita origin going back to 1856, when it was foundod by B. J. Ross & Co. They were anoceedsd in 1859 by P. F. Kelley & Co., the co-partners being P. F. Kelley and B. K. Jamison. Mr. Seller ^>ad '� 18^9. n^ the firm of B. K. Jamison cS: Co., wss then organized, tha other partner being William M. Stewart. This firm oootinued antil 1873, wben J. Henry Eersbaw was admitted, and later on Philip F. Kelley aad Arnold G. Plam-mer were taken into the firm. Tbe house was established for years at the Dotthwest corner of Third and Cbestnnt streets, and followed tbe movement-west Inaagorated by tbe Drexel Building enterprise and the change of the stock exchange, and located in tbe Brown Bnilding, at the north eorner of Fifth and Chestnat streets. B. &.

WHAT MR. jaikson sats. B. K. Jamison, bead of tbe firm, said tbia afternoon: "Our affairs are in such a confused state at this time that I cannot say what our liabilities and assets will amount to. If we are pushed by our creditors we will probably not be able to resume, as then our liabilities will exceed oar assets. A full statement is being prepared and will be made public in a few days." Alter the failure of the firm was an-nounecd on the atock exchange eleven hundred shares of Northern Paeifio common and preferred, Pennsylvania and Reading were sold under the rules. The liabilities are varioualy estimated at from 1500,000 to �1,000,000, but no flg-ures whatever have been given out on which to baae thia estimate. the 8tatk ib istkbk8tbd. A special from Harrisbnrg to the Puhlie Ledger says B. K. Jamison & Company have deposited with them $25,000 of State funds.

Tbe runners sent north by the Caddos and Kiowas have not yet returned, and scouts are on the lookout to intercept them, aa it is feared that reports of bloodshed may hasten an oat-break... i.The greatest uneasiness prevails among the whites on the west border of OAktahoma and Green county, Texas. The departure of General Miles, commander, (or Washington this morning, is more than significant, lu abort tbe General baa been sammonod to the national capital by General Schofleld and the Secretary of War, for the purpose of discussing the details of bis plan for at onee dismonnting and disarming the hostile Indians in tbe northwest.

Chicago, Not. 28 -A special from Wichita, Kan., says: Reports from Fort Reno tell of greatly increased ezaitement among the gbott dancers and considerable aocassiuns to their ranks, especially from among tba Kiowas and Apaohas, who seem most interested and tnolined to be turbulent. The more excitable redskins are cutting themselves with spears and knives, and tbe sight of blood has had tbe effect of greatly arousing the warrior spirit. Vuanab and several other well-kaoWD chiefs reached tbe scene of Oboet Dancing last night, and they appear to hare bees tbe bearers of some information from the North wbiob inflamed the blood of aeveral I lodges of braves, that tbey moauted their l.ltCTar7 Mate. In tbe oonrae of a toog artiale oa "Or-ganlzed Assassination among tbe Italians' ITit lUuftraled Ameriem ssjs: "A certain priest was thrown into the prisons of the Yicaris. Ha was approached at bis en' trance by a Camorrist, who demanded money for the lamp of the Madonna. The prieat had nothing. The Camorrist raised his stick. "Ab," said the priest, "^you would not be so fierce if I were armed as you are." "There is no difficulty about that," replied the Camorrist, wounded in bis sense of honor. Be lelt the room, returuiig with two knives, gave one to tha priest. They fought. Tbe priest most dexteronsly killed bis adversary. Then, for tbe first time, the priest felt afraid. He had killed a man, and that man was a Camorrist. He was exposed to tbe vengeance of the state, and to that of the society. To bis surprise he escaped both. The Camorrlsts, admiring his ooarage, concealed tbe homieide, and wben the priest went to bis bed be found upoa it bis share as a Camorrist, of the weekly distribution of tbe gains of tbe frater^ty. This share be eontinoed to reoeive during the whole period of his tmprisonment." TRANSPIRIfiGS OF A DAY. News of Interest for Our Many Eeaders to Peruse. THE LAT�3T LOCAL NEWS BULLETDT.

Good -histructors have been procured. Wilh an array of instructors suoh as Mrs. Monroe, Profs. Cougblin, Gobble, Eldoo, Dick, Kitchall, Beardsley and Me-loy, su Institute must be a success. One evening session and all the day sessions will be held in tbe Court House. The admission to the day sessions is free to the pnblio. Teaahers' Institutes are held in the interests of teachers, directors, patrons and children, hence every body should be interested. The holding of the institute is mandatory and aois the attendance of teachers. School directors should find it possible to be in attendance as often and as much as possible. It is only by thinking, reading and association with each other, and the teaohen that tbey can best subserve the interests intrusted Into their care and keeping. If patrons attended these annual teachers* gatberiogs more, tbey would find the training of the future citizen, less of a.task and more of a pleasure. Our schools will never be what they should be until all co-operate with each other In giving them the attention they so ranob deserve. People frequently say they would come if the distance were not so great. Just, allow as to say that distanee is not nearly so great a hindrance as, perhapj, Isok of interest. If you have never given the matter any thought or attention, please do so this year. Ton will see who the teachers of your ohildren are, what tbe nature of the instruction they receive aad how they reoeive it. Wbeu you get home and send yoor child to school you will know,.in a measure what to expect.

The noted soprano eoloi8t,Miss AmeliaFee,will be present to abarm you with pleasant songs. All tbe exercises will be interspersed with music. The people of Lock Haven should give tbe institute such a greeting by tbeir attendance at tbe day and evening sessions as to make tbe instructors and teachers feel that their week's stay waa appreciated. Don't forget the time, December 15,18, 17, IS and 18. Tell every onetlat you meet that Mrs. Monroe, Coughlio, Nourse, Dowlicg and Miss Fee are coming. Axa Factor; to Shat Down.

London, Nov. 28-A canvass has been eouducted by members of tbe Irish Par-liameotiry party who are opposed to Par-uell'a retention of the ivMty leadership, with a view to ascertain bow tbe poll is likely to go at Monday's meeting. The result was tbe securing o[ pledges from thirty-three of the members of the party to vote against Parnell. The adherents of Paroell wbo have announced their intention to ttiok to their old leader through thick and thin, number twenty-three. ^ rARSELL's manifesto. Parnell has issued a manifesto to tbe Irish people, in which he says: The integ-; rity aud loUepeDdence of tbe section ot the Irish parliamentivy patty having been apparently sapped and destroyed by tbe wire pullers of the liberal party, it baa become neeesaary for me as leader of tba Irish party to take counsel with yon, and having given you the knowledge wbiob is in my pos^ssiou tj ask your judgment upon a matter which now solely devolves upon you to decide. The letter from Gladstone to Morley, written for the purpose ot iullueiioing tbe decision of the Irish party iu the choice ol tbeir leader, aiid claimiug for the Liberals and their leaders tbe right to vote npon Che obOMC, is tbe immediate cause of the address, the pnrpoce of nhioh is to remind you and parliamentary repre-'sentativea that Ireland oonsiders the independence of her party as her only safeguard within tba conatitation and above and beyond all other considerations whatever. impelled by the threat. The threat Itt that letter, lepeatsd ao insolently on many English platforms, and in numerous British newspapers, that unlsbss Ireland Concedes this right of vote to England she will indefinitely poat-pone her chance of obtaining home rqle,' compels me, while not for a moment admitting the slightest possibility Of sooh loss, to put before you information wbiob until now, so far as my oolleagnesareeon-cerned, has been solelylio my possession, aud which will enable yon to understand the measure of the loss with which you are threatened unless you consent to throw me to tbe wolves now bowling for my destruction. Parnell then detailed his visit to Gladstone at Hawarden, where be received details of tbe intended proposals of Glad-stoneand his colleagues of tbe late Liberal Cabinet with regard co home rnle in tbe event of the next general election favoring the Liberal party: 1. Tbe retention of tbe Irish members in the Imperial Parliament. 2. The settlement of the land or agrarian difficulty in Ireland. 3. The coDti'oi of tbe Iriab oonitabo-lary. 4. The appointment of- the judiciary including judges of the Supreme Court, County Court judges, and resident magistrates. "I do not believe that soy action of the Irish people in eupporting me will endanger the homo rule cause or postpone tbe establishment of an Irish parliament, bat even if the danger with which we are theateoed by the Liberal party of to day were to be realized, I believe that tbe Irish people throughout the world would agree with me that a postponement would be preferable to a compromise of our national rights by tbe acoeptacoe of a measure which would not realize tbe aspiration of our race."
