Novel and Serious Accident.
On Thursday morning last, just after
the hands engaged in the Rolling Mill of
Messrs Harris, Burnish Si Co., at Fish
bach, adjoining this Borough, had com
menced the labors of the day, an accident
occurred which threatened utter destruc
tion to the building and all it contained; it
seems indeed miraculous that nf the 22
men who were in the mill at the time, no
lives were lost.
The fly wheel which is attached to the
engine, and composed of cast iron, fifteen
feet in diameter, weighing upwards of
twelve tons, while running with tremend
ous velocity burst asunder, throwing the
parts in every direction. One portion
weighing from 1500 to 2,000 pounds, was
thrown through the roof of the building in
an eastwardly direction, more than one
hundred yards, where it struck the earth,
completely burying itself. Another part
weighing not less than three tons, passed
almost perpendicularly through the heavy
frame timbers and roof, al though they
were composed of jack-straws, and was
seen by persons outside, when at an eleva
tion of somo 50 or 60 feel; in its desconl
other portions of the roof were crushed.
Again 'a fragment alruck the main iron
shaft 13i inches in diameter, to which the
wheel was attached, taking out a piece
some twelve inches in length almost as
smooth as if done with a saw. It hardly
appears credible that in this fearful crash
but one of the 22 men employed was in
jured, and he a fireman whose name, we
could not learn, had his head badly cut,
his shoulder bruised and wrist disloca
ted. The loss lo the proprietors is certainly
very considerable, yet through the assis
tance of Messrs. Wren tl Brothers, Ma
chinists, the damage is already repaired,
and the mill will be again in operation,
probably to-day or to-morrow. J'utlivUle
STnoi lar Case. The Bath, Me., Mir
ror, states that Mrs. Darn!, residing at
V tnnegance, apparently died, Saturday
before last. Preparations were made for
her funeral tho Sunday following. On
handling the body it was discovered to be
slightly warm, and there were other in
dications that although her blood was not
perceptibly in motion, she was yet alive.
The lance was applied and blood flowed
quite freely, and the application of a glass
lo the mouth and nostrils indicated a slight
respiration. Up to Thursday her con
dition appeared lo be improving, but there
were no signs of consciousness. Her body
will he kepi until there adjudications of
Gold Dollars. The Philadelphia
Public Ledger gives the following caution
to those who may chance to handle these
"lillle jokers :
"Split gold dollar pieces are rapidly
multiplying, and the caution cannot be too
often repeated to be on the look out for
litem. J he piece, by some fine and in
genious machinery, is split in two, about
one-half of the coin abstracted, and the
plundered sides stuck together again, tho
face of the piece not the least scarred or
injured. A little care will readily delect
the fraud. The milling around the edge
will be lounu broken, and very generally s
pewter-colored cement may be observed
protruding from it. The coin, too, is ihin
in the middle.
X Niw GoRostr. The new Jwork
which has just appeared at Leipsig "My
Life and Actions in Hungary, by Gorgey,"
is said to be gotten up aa a speculation

His voice is soft and full, rather of the lone

clearly, fluently, and to the point.

Land, and his wife will no doubt, soon re
join him here. He speaks highly of the
soil and climate he has just left, and ex
presses deep sympathy with the free En
glish colonists there, who, he says, are full
of the spirit of liberty, preparing in due
time to take their place, 'amongst the na

preparatory to a public reception of the
young patriot. That he will grace his
honors we have full faith from what we
have seen of him. He does not exago

Another proof will be given that an offi

made an officer's rank his patrimony; he
could only be deprived of it by the sen

of the venerable Dr. S. Nott, on the 20th

He 'was in his ninety -ninth year. About
a week before his disease his gown caught

before it was extinguished his hand was
badly burned. The injury and excitement
consequent upon the accident probably
hastened his death. Dr. Nolt had been
