A new method of creating an electris al current was accidentally discovered by Mr. Bloxton this mornitg. While bruebing the duet from a wire screen with a large feather dneter, he felt bis fingers tingle, and was at a loss to know the cause. Repeating the operation he heard the crackling as the feathers pass ed over the wire, and again felt the ehock. This might prove the founda tion for some important discovery.
