A local correspondent to the Commoner writes as follows.

The employes of the Hemingray glass factory are all busy again. The portion of the works, which were closed for a day or two, on account of the demand made by the boys who went out last week, is now being operated and there is general harmony existing.

The first of the week, will record a change in the manufacturing of glass at this factory. The blowers are now engaged in making cuspidors of glass. This is a new feature with the glass factories in this city. The first of the week, the order will be changed to that of amber fruit jars. This will continue for an indefinite period as there is a great demand for them. The factory is not crippled by the strike of the boys, at present, and it is thought that the factory will be operated by steadily henceforth.
