This new house is located on the edge of the beautiful grove at the head of the now famous Ohateaugay Chasm. It is not quite completed; but when finished will be a comfortable and excellently arranged hotel. The main building is three stories high, with two wings of two stories. It has 25 sleeping rooms, parlor, office, billiard room, large dining hall, well arranged kitchen, carving room, laundry, etc., and will be one of the beBt arranged summer houses in that section. The building has wood balconies on each story, and is surmounted with a spacious cupola or lookout, from which a view of the beautiful country for miles can be had—the St. Lawrence on the one hand, and the Adirondack mountains on the other. The Chasm House will be nicely furnished throughout, and it Is the inten- tion of the manager MB. W. S. MOKEAN, to keep it in first class style. It will be ready for the reception of guests about July the 15th, and is to be conducted upon both the American and European plans. The grove adjacent and surroundings gen- erally are being put in good condition, with a new roadway approaching, which will make the house a delightful place at which to Bpend some time. A beautiful croquet and tennis lawn will be laid out, a rifle range made, bath houses and many other features will be offered. The chasm is also being greatly improved in the way of stairways, footpaths, bridges, &c. An excellent mineral spring has been discov- ered in the chasm, which is another desira- ble feature. A coach will be run to the chasm from the depot at Chateaugay upon the arrival and departure of all trains. A number of our citizens have already en- gaged board at the Chasm House for the month of August, and others who may de- sire information as to rates, &,c, should see Mr. McKean at once. The O. & L. C. R. B. Co., will offer special excursion rates to the chasm this season. The formal pening of the new hotel wi)l be signalled _y an excursion of the manager's friends 111 along the line of the O. & L. C. R. R.— * g Journal. PLATTSBITRGH PUBLIC SCHOOLS. ROLL OF HONOR!

Oak Street School. The closing exercises last Friday morning at Oak street school, of which Prof. W. H. Phillips is Principal, drew together, as usual, a large crowd of appreciative cit- izens, and were of a high order, showing great care in the selections, and the most thorough discipline. We will not go into details. The perfect system and order, for which Mr. Phillips is noted were distinguishing features. While the rhetorical part was the leading feature, music played no unimportant part, Miss Alice Soper kindly presiding at the organ. The songs and choruses were rendered with much spirit and in perfect time. The number of pupils graduated to the Intermediate, which was 46, is the largest ever sent out from any of the primary schools at any previous year. Prof. Phillips' address to the class was very impressive, and he told some truths which parents as well as children should ponder. His remark that he knew more about those children than their mothers might seem extravagant at first thought; but those who understand the vigilance which he exercises over all pupils who come under his care, and the thoughtless- ness frequently shown by parents, -will concede that in many instances the remark is too true. We wish the veteran teacher many more years of success and usefulness in the vo- cation of his life, and hope he may always be assigned the position where he can do the most good. The Kindergarten Entertainment The commencement exercises of Miss Helena Augustine's Kindergarten School were held in Academy Hall, last Tuesday evening, to the delight of the fair-sized and selected audience there gathered. The pro- gramme as advertised was well and skill- fully carried out, with very little change considering the number of small people who were the actors. It is always a joy to wit- ness exercises in which children have a part, and our citizens have come to look forward to the entertainments given from year to year by Miss Augustine's pupils. They are characterized by so much of beauty, grace, innocence and childish abandon, they can- not fail to please. Each flower of a child sends out its spell of fragrance and bloom, and speaks or sings its song of joy to the delight of the looker-on. For the most part, they do so charmingly well too, that it is a pleasant reflection upon the faithful teacher. The Kindergarten is a growing garden in more than one sense of the word. By her unwearied patience and perseverance, Miss Augustine has made it a success, even in ie face of discouragements. With larger and more convenient rooms and pleasant grounds and surroundings Miss A. could do still better work. If some Pittsburgh philanthropist (?) would build a capacious and pleasant hall on the vacant lot near the head of Clinton St., and, on the first floor, have a suite of sunny rooms for ths kinder- garten, a reading room and a free library for the people, something more than \an airy habitation, 1 ' a substantial structure, we would never again think longingly of the public spirit and philanthropy that blesses our sister Burlington. This is wandering from the subject, but in view of the city's need's, a very natural wandering. A Card. To the Editor of the Plattsburyh Sentinel: Permit me through the columns of your paper to commend the Agricultural In- surance Co., of Watertown, N, Y., through their General Agent, Mr. Rogers', \who set- tled my loss on Saturday, June 4th, which loss of my house, barn, &c, occurred on May 19th. Said loss was settled and has been paid to my entire satisfaction, amount- ing to $800, the full insurance, and I here- by return my best regards to the company for the fair dealing of the agent.

[No. 2.] Some weeks ago, when we began our article on the pulp industries at Ticonder- oga, we thought we could have a charming article,—we formed a fine foundation; the superstructure not so fine. Our intentions were good, the result not so good. We found to onr cost that in all cases where one aims at sketch writing that the sun in its inimical height does not alway illu- minate the depths of the sea, but we trust our failure in what we attempted was suf- ficiently apologized for in our article. To-day we will see what we can do with article No. 2d, with a similar work for our subject, situated at the upper village. As these works are not under the ban of secret conduction we trust we can tell our readers more of the ins and outs of paper manufacture from one of the many articles used not long since. We read in a promi- nent journal an article on paper making of the past, and as a few extracts will fit in our article so nicely we trust to be pardon- ed for the clipping. The people of to-day pride themselves on the wonderfuHnventions and stupend- ous projects of the present, when in reality they are but the outgrowth of thought in the dark eyes of the past and the result of seed sown in some obscure corner of hea- thendom. Many of the many industries of to-day were originated centuries gone by, and the originator thereof builded on firm- er foundations then. He knew, and like the rippling of the pebble splash circled far and wide, yet unlike it, for, as the rip- ple increased in dimensions by the varioms improvements made by the people of each decade, increased in proportion till nearly every place from pole to pole feels and knows its presence. Eeferring to our extracts we find that in the year 704 the Saracens in their con- quest of China brought to Spain paper made by the Chinese, where the process had been in vogue for over a thousand years. This process was to simply beat some sort of vegetable fiber to a pulp in a large mortar, and when of a right consis- tency spread it in sheets to dry, and as the flowery kingdomites are so adverse to labor Baving machinery, the process is the same to-day, and strongly in contrast with the ponderousness and complexity of the pres- ent. ] Europe learned from the Saracens in the middle of the seventh century the art, and in the latter part of the thirteenth century, in Germany, was built the first mill foi paper making. It run by water, and sim ply reduced by stamps, something like the trip hammer styles vegetable fiber to pulp. Various improvements were made from time to time, till in 1588 a German manu- facturer made such beautiful paper from rags, and gave some to Queen Elizabeth. She was so delighted and pleased with the beautiful paper that as a reward for his genius she created him a knight, and gave him the monopoly of gathering and hold- ing for his own special use all the rags in her entire domain for the space of ten years, thus creating the first corner in rags. A short time since we made a tour of the mill belonging to the Lake George Pulp and Paper Co., and by the courtesy of the Superintendent we were shown the process from beginning to end. We were first con- ducted to the upper story where the rag sorting is done. The room is large and airy, and from the windows on either side is seen the beautiful landscape of Lake George surroundings, and the cool, moist air is in constant circulation as the first rapids, cascades and falls that leave the lake rush downward and onward to the next mill, past two sides of the building, and their dashings make music for the girls who sort the rags. The rags are received in this room in average bales of 700 pounds, and are picked up country rags, no foreign or hospital rags being used. After sorting, they are removed to a lower room where two men with wet sponges covered over their mouths and noses, and closely veiled faces, feed them to the machines that cut, tear, and grind them to shreds, and blow the dust out preparatory to the cooking process. This room can not be conspicuous for its cleanliness, and no doubt many a good dame would uphold her hands in holy hor- ror to see the dust, which is on an average of six inches in depth over everything; pure unadulterated dust. On one side oi the room they are passed down and fed to a huge boiler. The boiler being filled with rags, a lime solution is poured in and the rags are cooked by steam for twelve hours, after which an opening in the Bide of the boiler is opened and the rags pulled out to the floor—the cooking process being done (o start the dirt and. oolors of the rags. What appeared to be dirt before now has become a mass of reeking fllthiness and nauseating odor. But wait a few moments and then see. After draining a while they are carried to a large tank, one side having an agitator possessed with a series of knives, and filled with water; they are placed in this and are made to revolve round and round. An instrument in one side constantly pumping in fresh air and water, and the dirty water running out. Here they assume a shade of whiteness and are passed on through other and yet other tanks, having agitators and filled with water. When the last one is reached they are as white as is possible for anything to be. They are then paSsed to a series of vats for draining, a fine, soft, substance, which when taken up crumbles in your hand. After draining it is thrown out with forks and carried to an- other set of tanks, being then mixed with from 20 to 30 per cent, of wood pulp and size, it is sent through another series of agitators, then through some dainty tum- bling agitators which gives it the final shaking up, and sends it out with as real substance as sea foam, it having the closest resemblance to that of anything compar- able; it is now ready for ihe> finale. It is passed to rollers, that carry between them, the rollers, below a fine wire netting that forms the bed for the blankets to move on, and the rollers above carry the blankets to another set of rollers. The foamy mass is carried over and under at a velooity of some where near a — well, we won't say, for we should not get it right, but a little less than a thousand feet per minute. The blankets are of a felty material and see about three months of active service. From the blankets the wet paper passes to and over large rollers, heated by steam, when it is pressed, smoothed, dried, polished and otherwise perfected into beautiful paper. From thence it passes to the cutting and folding department, then sorted and pack- ed into bales and boxes ready for shipment. The building throughout is a solid and permanently builded one, no pains or ex- pense being spared for perfection. The foundations are more than solid, being of the rock, placed by nature, and excava- tions being blasted out. There is some masonry, the supports for the boilers and engines. Turbine water wheels of several sizes supply the motive power for the most of the machinery, and a furnace fed by saw dust and waste wood, furnishes the cook- ing and heating purposes. The machinery is complicated, yet not as ponderous as in the Chemical mill. Several things were particularly noticeable: First, there was no tremor about the building, eren when all the machinery wasin operation. Second, economy in the management of material. Nothing wasted. The general appearance of the work rooms and men, who, notwith- standing the work, was much above the general average. The workmen, both men and women, were courteous, perfectly un- derstanding their work, and appeared to hold their superintendents in respect. The wood pulp mill is situated near by and fur- nishes the pulp required in the paper mak- ing. Large quantities are now being ship- ped to' San Francisco to be used in the manufacture of giant powder. The Lake George branch of th»D. & H. It. It. parses a few feet from the building, thu» a s&ving in cartage. To Mr. Higgins, the Superintendent of the mill, we extend our most sincere thanks, who conducted us through the entire build- ing and showed us everything, and so kindly telling and explaining, as he went. We acknowledge we were in the same boat with the deaf old woman who went to church and sat on the back seat. After service she went forward and shook hands with the minister and said, \That was a powerful sermon yon preached, but I couldn't hear a word of it,\ The explana- tion he gave was elaborate and concise, but owing to the din of the machinery we heard three words out of every ten. How- ever, we extend the thanks just the same, for the courtesies received in return for our woman's inqtiisitiveness and question- ings. KATE E. STANLEY. A Word of Wisdom. We wish to say a word to those who con- template the building of new dwellings, or the alteration of old ones, whether in country or town, as to the value of slate roofing compared with other kinds, viz: tin, shin- gles, etc. It is a well known fact that nearly all the tin now imported is of a very inferior quality, and when used for roofing, (unless kept well painted at a large expense every year), the acid from coal fires will soon eat its way through and thus render the roof worthless. On the other hand everybody knows that the great bulk of shingles now manufactured are not only made from poor quality of timber, but very little care is taken in their manufacture to keep out the knots, etc.; they are sold cheap on the market, which fact is evidence that at least two-thirds of the shingles now laid through this country are really not worth the labor of putting them on. Nevertheless people continue to use them for roofing with the mistaken idea that they are much cheaper than slate, and that they cannot afford to use the latter. Not so, as we will endeavor to show you later. It is the prevailing opinion that a slate roof is a great deal heavier than shingles. The plain facts are as follows: Cedar shingles, when dry, weigh about 300 pounds to the .square (10 feet sqr.); in wet weather, or even with the moisture from dew, their weight doubles, and in winter when covered with from one to two feet of snow, they weigh not less than two thousand pounds to the square; this great weight causes the roof to sag in the weaker places, and when the snow disappears a portion of it will spring back into place again, and a part will remain depressed, thereby causing great damage to the building. Frost also will draw out the nail from the seating and rafters, which materially weakens the struc- ture. All this is avoided by using slate for roofing; its weight is uniform through all seasons of the year, viz: 500 pounds to the square; hence it is plain that any building strong enough to stand under the load of shingles, as stated above, will certainly be able to carry the much lighter load of slate, with far less strain upon its timbers. Fur- thermore, slate is impervious to frost or moisture, consequently the seating and rafters are preserved in a perfectly dry con- dition. Another great feature in favor of slate roofing is that the snow will not stay on it, and it is well also to know that the dew that collects on 20 sqrs. of slate will make a barrel of good clean water every day; which in the dry seasons, or in places where the soil contains hard water only, is of Inestimable value. Last but not least, is the protection from fire that a slate roof affords. Any one can see at a glance that slate properly laid makes the best and cheapest roof in the market, and we advise those who intend to build or repair to call at Williams & Velsey's office on Clinton street, Plattsburgh, and examine their stock of slate and prices before deciding about the roof. Applications by mail or other- wise for estimates on jobs of roofing will receive prompt attention. 63w4 From the Ogdensburgh Journal. Ogrdensburg; and Lake Cbamplain. Walter L. Frost, the new President of the Ogdensburg and Lake Champlain Railroad company, is in town, and expects to remain a month or six weeks, looking after the in terests of his company, which naturally centre here, so as to gain a knowledge of the things to be done to increase the busi- ness of his road and make it an important link in one of the great lines stretching from the Pacific to the Atlantic. He represents the progressive spirit which has recently been infused into the Ogdensburg and Lake Champlain company, and which is building the new bridge at Bouses Point and the link at Swanton so as to give it better connec- tion with the net Work of New England roads, and a direct line to the seaboard at Portland. This same progressive spirit will bridge the Oswegatchie here, and give the Ogdensburg end Lake Champlain direct connection by rail with all points west and the Canadian Pacific Railroad at Morristown and Brockville.

No. 9, of West Chazy, but will promise not to take it to heart, as reporters are not sup- posed to possess that appendage. —When in Plattsburgh a fevr days since we had the pleasure of meeting Mrs. Oliver Lapham, who with her husband is the guest of George L. Clark, Esq. Having left their home in Brooklyn they have secured this pleasant place of abode in which to remain during the very severe illness of Mr. L's aged mother, widow of the late Chauncey Stoddard, whom we regret to learn lies dangerously ill. ' Mrs. S., who until very recently has been an honored resident of Peru, is now over 90 years of age. Her husband, who died some three years since, had also attained the same advanced age. They have been unusually healthy and active, choosing to toil when necessity did not demand it and the result has been a long and useful life. But now with mother so very ill and one of the sis- ters suffering from that almost incurable disease, Cancer, both in the same house, the grief stricken family should receive the sympathy of all. —The little village of Lapham's, not to be out done by larger fry, celebrated loudly on the morning of the Fourth, fifty salutes being fired between the hours of 12 and 2 o'clock, during which time a chicken chowder had been prepared at a bonfire, which which was piled high about the base of the large Garfield liberty pole which had been taken down to prevent falling, and the boys, after making noise enough, sat down to a sumptuous feast just as the ele- ments of heaven began to be disturbed, thus avoiding the drenching rain accom- pained by vivid flash and deafening thun- der. -We would acknowledge through this medium the honor and pleasure given us by the bright little serenade with which we were favored by the Thespian club on the evening of June 29. Though the shad- dows of evening had fallen we could not mistake those well trained and perfectly modulated voices which atoned in perfect harmony, reminding us that the day had been spent on the water with a row-away- row o'er its silvery surface, and that life was all too short to be given up to constant toil. Recreation and rest should inter- mingle freely with the cares of life. The party was gotten up in honor of Mrs. Dr. Chapman, of Minneapolis, Minn., sister of Messrs. George and Hiram Heyworth. The visitors present were Mrs. Chapman, Dr. Glough, of Burlington, and Dr. Morehous, of Albany. They dined in Baggs' grove, and a party of them returning by way of Peru Landing did not forget that we should have enjoyed being one of their number. ANT I. QXJASY. PEASLEVIIXE. The people of tills place were called up- on to pay their last respects to and consign to their last resting place, the remains of one of our former residents, Mrs. Lydia Wescott, wife of Bev. L. O. Hathaway, who died in Panton, Vt., on the 6th day of June, aged 42 years. She was sick for about eight weeks, during the last five weeks of her life she suffered beyond des- cription, but was sustained amid it all by the consciousness of the presence of her Savior, and the assurance that the end would be peace and rest, and joy forever- more. She was born in this place and always lived here within a stone's throw of the church, (in fact the church is built upon her father's farm), until her mar- riage with Bev. L. O. Hathaway, about 15 years ago, and seemed really one of us. She leaves a husband, two bright promis- REDFOBD. —Fishing seems to be the rage at present. I Master Henry Good, and M. T. Good, Allie Ormsbee, have gone to Chateaugay Lake. We expect a great fish story. Allie Ormsbee h&s accepted a position as clerk, in A. Sehiff's store, at Dannemora, where he will move in a few weeks, with his family. Mr. Ormsbee has been in Mr. G. P. Martin's store for the last three years; he is a son-in-law of the late Dr. O.

Funeral services were held in the church, June 8th, at 10 o'clock A. M. , conducted by Rev. Mr. Bennett, of Vergennes, who was with her during her last illness, and who kindly volunteered to accompany her remains to this place. He was assisted by Bev. S. B. Gregg, preacher in charge. Her numerous friends wish to convey their thanks to Rev. Mr. Bennett, and the people of Panton, for their uniform kindness and care for their relative during her sickness, for they are assured that they did every thing that was possible for them to do to allay her suffer- ing and make her comfortable. L. M. H. RO6KRSH£LD. —The lovlieat summer resort in the country, whose green clad hills and tower- ing mountains, we could admire forever. —Yesterday, in response to a cordial in- vitation to make a two weeks' pleasure trip to the mountain, we hastily dressed while friend packed our satchel, and we took our seat In an easy riding coach, amidst pleasant company, behind a lively team and wended our \way up the long bill till we came to the beautiful Chateaugay Lake, of which Northern New York may justly be proud, where a ride of eight miles along its placid shores brought us to this thriv- ing romantic little woodland village. Not so very little either, as it is said to be the second village in size in the county, and certainly contains several nice buildings that no vlilage need be ashamed of, especially the store and hotel belonging to the company, which latter, with its new addition, and enterprising and obliging landlord, Mr. Bipley, we have no doubt, will prove an attractive place to summer tourists from both far and near. The vil- lage also has other attractions, chiefly among which is its grand cornet band, whose soul-stirring, and we had almost said nerve electrizing music, we had the extreme pleasure of listening to in the spacious dining hall of our host and host- ess, Mr. and Mrs. C. N. Templeton, whose popular boarding house is second only to the hotel in size, location and accommoda- tions. • DOT. CHAZY. —Thursday of last week was the hottest day of the season. Men were obliged to quit the fields and to keep quiet under the shade of trees. The weather is getting dry; we had a very peculiar shower here Friday. One mile west of here they had the heaviest shower of the season—clouds stood nearly still and poured for one hour. It rained a little here, .while a short distance north the sky was clear.

Potatoe bugs are ex- tremely plentiful and the warmer the weather the better their appetite. —Mr. Edward Standish, from Iowa, is visiting friends in this vicinity after an absence of seventeen years.
