Practically Settled. Mr. Wetteroth

yesteiday in the circulation of a peti
tition asking the appointment of Mr,
Henry Wetteroth, for several years
wellknown .'and popular citizen
Americas, bat who for a year or two
past has resided in New Jersey. From
this action nron the part of his friends
here it is presnmed^that Mr. Wetter

created by the demise of Postmaster

Postmaster Mitchell had the strongest
indorsements possible for the office,
and it was generally supposed that the
appointment would be given him
onetime. And this [may still bo the
result, though it is not known what
efieot this latest entry may have upon
the situation, if any. There were
