7 WENTY-FOUR O'CLOCK.
tX ktvt method of mcnsnrin;; t!mo
fas adopted at (be Greenwich cb-
l.ervalon j eslenla. Tbo day of
ttveaty-four hours will be reckoned
from mi'lmghr. Tbo hours will no
1 aser be divided, as now, into luehe,
bat will be counted on to twenty
four. A number of clocks and watch
es liave already appeared with faces
adapted to the new method of count
ing. But more tban this would be
required. Tbe hour hands of watches
must be made to traverse the twenty
four sections instead of twelve. By
this measurement 1 o'clock r. m.
wutild become 13 o'clock, and so on.
The change about to ba made at
Greenwich is an official one, tbat be
ins government observatory. The
proposed change is already encoun
tering some opposition. The change,
however, will bo greatly expedited by
tbe watch and clockmakers, who will
introduce the new dial faces exten
sively, if for no better reason than
that it would make business in their
line bribk. The ttventy-four hours
on the dial, says the JhiUetin, will
probably not becomo popular. Old
fashioned people will find it hard to
conform to the new usage. There
will bo but little use for "r. m." and
"a. m." when the new dials are adopt-

Furale timekeeper, a watch can
ho greater merit than easy legi-
. so tuat 11 can be consulted by
licht or by a nerson with defec
tien: and nothincr is so condn
to this particular kind of excel-
as a wliite dial, with bold and
senarat d fi cures, and -with
igly marked hauds.Hc!an ordinary

Um the airu. -T-ite of the inter
nees; ami, ir twenty-frqr sets of

interspaces at all. Even the large
d.als of the observatory clock at
Greenwich looks uncomfortably
crewded: and in a watch divided in
the same m:.uivr the circle would be
I tactically unbroken. The love or
11 velty will bj sure to produce some
deanud for such watches; but, if we
arc not gvatly mistaken, the balance

"cdly some advan
cing time according to
method adopted at the Green
wich observatory. Young bloods
might find it inconvenient to be out
late when the small hours are no
longer noted, and H o'clock is substi
tuted for 2 o'clock. It is not likely
that n system which works well
euough in all matters of business,
will be mado to give way to a system
which, while better for scientific pur
poses, would work confusion and be
attended with great additional ex
pense in altering lime pieces. The
world will still get along with a day
divided"into two sections of twelve
hours eacht
A doctor was lately brought be
fore the German tribunals for having
neglected to keep himself informed as
to modern methods of practice. A
servant who received a wound in the
chest in April last died from septicae
mia under the caro of this doctor,
who despising antiseptic dressings,
treated his patient according to an-
cient usages. The court held that
f every medioal practitioner should
;eep himself informed on the accom-
lJished progress of science, and have
an exact knowledge of modern sys
tems of treatment. If these had been
employed tho patient's life might
haveheen saved, henco the liability

GENERAL GRANT.
The papers at the cast, says the
S.
F. Chronicle, aro much concerned
about the fortunes of General Grant
All his property, high and low, has
been seized under the judgment ob
tained against him by Mr. Vander
bilt and is to be sold by tho sheriff.
It is intimated that Tanderbilt's is a
j friendly suit instituted to protect
the general's property from other
j creditors of Grant & "Ward. But
such a course of action is not in tho
least in Vauderbilt's line. He is the
very man to exact his pound of flesh
from the soldier who saved the conn
try. It is miserably petty business
quibbling about Grant's having this
or that little driblet of income left
A man who has rendered the country
such services as ho rendered should
be munificently rewarded as En
gland rewarded Wellington, as France
rewarded Napoleon. It is humili
ating to think of this great man be
ing reduced to write magazine articles
for a living in his old age. He has
testified a willingness to bo restored
to the rank in tho army which he
surrendered in order to lake tho
presidency at a time when perhaps
lie was tiie only man in whom the
people had confidence. Is there any
reason why congress should hesitate
to restore him? Wo know of none.
Canadian merchants and manufac
turers who have large mails save a
third in their postage expenses, it is
said, by sending their mail matter in
bundles by express to the nearest
postoffice on tho United States side
of the boundary line, where they mail
it at tho two-cent rate, whereaB they
would have to pay three cents if the
matter were mailed on the other side.
At the high court of judiciary in
Edinburg the other day a man was
condemned to two month's imprison
ment for having knocked his wife
down and kicked her unto death.
The next prisoner was convicted of
having stolen a letter containing two
half-soverigns and sixty stamps.
His sentence was five years' penal
servitude.
The Washington monument will
