House Cleaning The Scientific American says,' as this is about the -season when good housewives clean their houses from garret to cellar, it may be well to say a few words on tho sob* ject. When you wash paint, don't use soft soap and wairn water, for that will fake off the paint as well as- the dirt. 'Use cold water and bard soap. Scrub the floors with soft soap, and don't put down the "carpets until the floor is perfectly dry. A|wayi put down some fine linen (mind clean) straw under the carpet nnd lay it smooth .ana* level. Carpet may be cleaned by pounding them in strong soapsuds and washing'them out, well of the soap. The; suds must be very strong ond cold. .This is done' by ^ cutting the hard soap and dissolving it in warm, water. .The suds should feel slip, pery between the fingers. Bedsteads should, ¦ receive a complete scrubbing with soap and water, and should not bo put up until per* feclly dry. The seams! and holes should then be annointed with corrosive sublimate ...

Another Discovery. Mr. Paine, who claims to havo invented a method of producing light and heat by the combustion of water, not satisfied with this discovery, has hit upon a cheaper and more abundant fuel. The Worcestor Spy rays : Although the patent of the Hydro Electric Light has been secured, Mr. P. has not remitted his,-, investigations, and at last has discovered a process of catalyzing the oxygen of the atmosphere, and rendering it highly luminiferous at a mere nominal expense, without the cost of machinery, or any other apparatus than an air receiver, capable of holding common air. We have it in operation in our office, examined it midntely, catalyzed the oxygen ourself.and read by the light so produced, which1 is equal, if not superior, to the best gas turned in the cities. -The flame is peculiarly bright and brilliant, burns with a clear, steady light, -is entirely inoderous, and during the half hour that we watched its operation, we could see no consumption of .the ca...

From the Harrisburg, American. Election Frauds—Beed& Kneass. Hon. R. Kneass, and William B. Reed were candidates at the; last election, for the office of District Attorney of the city and county of Philadelphia. Mr.' Kneass was returned as elected by a majority of eightyfive votes. On a complaint of certain electors, alledging that Mr. .Kneass was'unduly and fraudulently elected, his election was contested before the Court of Common Pleas—King, Kelly and Campbell, were the Judges on the bench. The returns of three election districts were impugned as erroneous and fraudulent, to wit: the borough of West Philadelphia, the Eastern precinct of the District of Penn, and the Secbnd Ward of Moyamensi'ng-There was a manifest error in the returns of West Philadelphia, which reduced the majority of Mr. Kneass to thirty-five votes.

The steamboat Webster, Captain Samuel Reno, took fire yesterday afternoon, and was burned to the water's edge, at the head of Island E,ghty.s.x, one hundred miles above yieksburg. The fire was first discovered and the alarm given about 3 o'clock, and almost instantly afterwards the boat was enveloned in flames. v The pilot, Mr. Buckman, to whom great credit is due, having charge.o'f the wheel immediately endeavored to run the boat ashore. He was in part successful; but the flames finally drove him from his post, and the boat being unmanageable, floated again into deep water, thus depriving the passengers and crew of^ the first and last hope of safety. ' -.. At the first alarm a scene ensued which it is impossible to describe, and mingled as it was with the burning boat, from which the flames were spouting in all directions, became terrible in the extreme.

Strange Coincidence. We' have been informed by a friend in Philadelphia pf a remarkable circumstance which recently took placain that city; A young lady of a wealthy family was devotedly attached to a gentleman" who loved her in return sincerely and disinterestedly. The lady's mother was bitterly averse to the continued attentions of the lover and finally forbade him to enter the house. Thusxrepulsed, he was obliged to meet his betrothed—for such she was—in a clandestine manner. They were accustomed to meet in Ronaldson's cemetery, doubtless to talk of their hopes for the future and to exchange vows of.fidelity while walking in that beautiful spot. This was discovered^ and the mother in order to stop further communication, with a cruelty that needs no comment, kept her daughter strictly closeted. Previous to this the i latter had made an agreement to meet her lover in the cemetery on the 23d of April, three weeks hence; by which time she expected to make definite arrangement...

Flax Cotton From present indications there is not much doubts as to the feasibility of substituting flax and hemp for cotton. The experiments thus far are most encouraging, and if the results*which they promise are but half realized, there is to be a great change in the trade of the world, at no distant day. Linen fabrics are so far superior to cotton, both in style and texture, comfort and durability, that if the" cost of production can be nearly equalized, it cannot be doubted that linen would speedily supersede cotton for most- domestic purposes.— The experiments already made, go far to prove that flax and even hemp can be so prepared, as to cost very little, if any more than cotton, but approximate very nearly to silk, in beauty and durability. If it shall turn out, on a fair and full experiment, that flax can be produced at about the same cost as cotton, it will completely revolutionize the trade of more than half the civilized world. Cotton is now the great lever which r...

Scott and Johnston. It can't be helped—it don't need helping —its all right—that fuss about making Gen. Scott President in 1852—and there is no use in grumbling about it, or finding fault with it. The thing is a fixed fact. A grateful people have decreed it; and " all the rest of mankind" can't prevent its consummation. We don't care who started the ball, or who's to- be benefitted by rolling it along; its bound to go ahead. And if Gov. Johnston has put his manly shoulders to the wheel, and is a leader in the good work, he has but given another proof of his wise forecast and good sense. We commend him for it. A Loco paper before us says'he wants to ride into the Gubernatorial chair for a second term on the popularity of Scott, as he did for the first term on the popularity of Taylor. So be it. Thus we shall have a good Whig Governor for three -years more. But, perhaps he don't need any backing of that sort. His wise, honest, and economical administration of public affairs si...
