The increased rates of duty given to manufacturers of woolens will transfer to this oountry the manufacture of from �15,000,000 to �20,000,000 worth of woolen goods now made abroad. The slight advance in tbe duties on wool will enable our farmers at an early day to supply substantially all home demands for wool. The production of 600,-000,000 pounds of wool would require about 100,000,000 Bheep-nearly donble the present number. The fourteen years of revenue tariff found us with 60,000,000 pounds of wool, or one and Beven-tenths pounds per oapita of population. Twen-ty-four years of protection increased that product to 308,000,000 pounds, or five and four tenths per capita. With such an experience surely wa are justified in offer-ing this important agricultural product Adequate protection.

Another man named Ronrke fell off an electric car to-night on the way home to Lowell and bad his ankle fraotured. * The Lowell officers were s'ationed at the line and arrested and handcuffed the intoxicated persons as fast as they came over. In the vioinity of tbe saloon scores of Hoodlums laid out in the fields,trampled over planted land, drank and danced in high carnival. At seven o'olock to-night tbe holder of the license was forced to shut down business for bis own peace, and it is believed that a general uprising of citizens will cause a change in affairs. base bali�� In the Senate Senator Jones' speech on tbe bill authorizing the issue of treasury notes on deposits of silver bullion- took up almost tbe entire session to-day. At the suggestion of Mr. Teller Mr. Jones, postponed finishing bis speech until to-morrow. The scene in tbe Senate chambers during the delivery of tbe speech was a fail indication of the great interest felt in it, ,and in tbe subject by the Senator* ,froo the mining States.

The curative properties of his wonderful specifics are,- and have been for yean, tbe delight and wonder of two eot*> tinents, and recently tbey have made their way into malarial Africa in snob quantities as to show there ia always a want for' an article of proved reliability, Thiai* why Humphreys' Specifics are everywhere re-oelved with confidence.-Hampton, Vs.
