REMARKABLE CLOCK. - They have been adding all manner of conveniences to the offices of the Clerks of the Fourth, Twelfth and Fifteenth District Courts, and beautifying them with paint, and making them smell infernally by the same means. But the last astonisher in this line is a handsome clock, which runs three years with once winding up. We are not entirely certain on the latter point -- we only jumped to the conclusion because the clock is hung so high up on the wall that it will be at least three years before they will find anybody tall enough to reach up there and wind it.
