MAKING CHANGE. A Reform in the Matter of Church Col lections, with an Incident by way of Illustrations. The New York Times advocates an important reform in the matter of tak ing up church collections. It is to grant to every contributor the right to tak« change out of the plate. As is well known,[this is at present impossible, and whatever sum is now placed in the plate, must remain there. Could a man put in, say 25 cents, and take out 15 he wonld never be compelled to choose between giving too much or giving nothing at all. In illustration of the possible evil effetfs of the present practice of giving n(rchange, the Times tells the following little story: "Black Run, as any map may fail to show, is situated in the Colorado mining district, and the the Baptist church is presided over by an able athletic preacher. On the fourth Sunday in February last a collection was taken up for the Franz Josel land mission, and the plate was passed around by one of the deacons. There was present a...

I A REMARKABLE DISCOVERY. #~"Tlu Petrified Remains of an Indian Chief. Washington Rational Republican. Tuesday afternoon, while Messrs. John L. Hampton and Samuel R. Walker were engaged in digging a trench on a piece of ground belonging to the latter, about two hundred yards from Shell bank, on the Eastern Branch, back of Bladensburg, their im plements struck, as they thought, a very hard and substantial substance, and concluding that it was only a stone, continued to remove the earth to prv the stone from its position. After working for some time they managed to clear away sufficient earth to permit a view of the great mass. They were greatly astonished to find that it resem bled in shape a human being and was savory weighty. After many futile at- Ttempts to raise the mass, they wisely concluded to rig a derrick. Mr. Walk er sped away to his home and soon re turned with the requisite apparatus, which they speedily put in working or der. Placing strong ropes around each end of the b...

THE iron workers of England include 140,000 laborers in furnaces and forges, 169,000 in the manufacturing of ma chinery, 5,500 in steel works, 48,000 in shipbuilding, and about 200,000 in vari ous branches of iron and steel manu facture, making about 570,000 in all.

He was the father of Marcus T. Sacia, who was recently sent to state prison by Judge Nixon* in the United States Court at Trenton, for conspiracy in the Lewis will case. Oae of the wit ness esin the case implicated the elder Sacia in that conspiracy. The old man and the son were engaged in very many operations—Cbarles suggesting ana Marcus executing the schemes.

IF war really breaks out between Russia and China, the wear and tear to which the innocent telegraph and newspaper man of civilized countries will be subjected is painful to contem plate. Geographical names in that pari of the world are peculiar. THE merchants of Manhattan, Kan sas, were unable to discover who ha bitually robbed them, until a detective advised them to search the students' rooms in the State Agricultural College. The result was the recovery of $400 worth of boots, clothing, jewelry, and other things, and the confession by seven students that they were the thieves. A DISPATCH from St. Petersburg says that the programme of the Czar for a new liberal course toward the Jews and the people of Poland has met with the determined Opposition of the aristocrat ic classes in St. Petersburg, and their hostility has aroused such a clamor against the measure that its execution has...
