Tlie question of cartage, which lias been a subject for several let? ters aud of editorial comment iu Several issues of our paper is now dofluitely settled. No commission merchant in New York now charges cartage, so far as we aie advised. The question has been solved, as we understand, by the superb fa? cilities provided by the railroad company at their magnificent pier in New York, for the receptiou ot our produce, and the arrange? ments made by the manager of the New York, Philadelphia ami Norfolk railroad for its delivery there. To which of the commission merchants of New York, especial credit is due for hasteniug the re? lief from the burden of cartage, we do not kuow?no one of them surely can claim the credit exclusively, Iu fact, we believe that the most of those receiving shipments from the Eastern Shore, worked diligeutly to seenre ...

Warmth from Paper. A single newspaper spread upon a bed confines a layer of air under it, and this of itself is a non-con dui'tor of heat, and far less of heat escapes from the bodies of the per? sons in tbe bed. At tbe same time it, keeps that layer of air from mo? tion, and thus affords extra protec t:on. Let anyone try pasting to? gether several sheets of common newspapers, to form a covcrli<i,and they will find its protection almost ;is great as that of an extra closely woven bedspread. Two or three sach layers will equal in warmth quite a thick comforter. They can be pasted or fastened together at the edges for easy handling, and l>c kept fohle?! in a closet for extra cold nights. This is of pent im )M?rtancc to poor persons, and to all w ho have nor an abundant supply of warm bedding.

Locomotive Headlights. "There are 25,000 locomotives in the United States," said a railway official, "and every one of them is furnished with a headlight. A locomotive without a headlight would look like a dog without a nose, and most people would say that it is next to impossible to run a locomotivo without a big lamp in front. Yet I am of theopiniou that these lamps are almost useless,aud that they could bo taken off most locomotives without detriment to anybody. Headlights are not iu use in England, and we have used thom iu America simply because somebody used them before us. We Lav.' become so accustomed to them that most people think that a loco? motive without a lamp could not be run with safety,bntl am convinced that there is more da tiger in their use than in their absence. I speak, of course, ot road engines, and not of those used iu yards.
