Belligerent. A young man named Hen
ry Meek, was arrested and committed to

with committing an assault ou his uncle,

X Walks and Homes of Jesus A new book
by Rev. Daniel March, D. D., author of
"Night Scenes in the Bible," is an inter
esting work, and should bo in every chris
tian family. Miss Emma Toland is agent
for this work, and will shortly visit New
port and Duucanuon, soliciting subscribers.
Kllie young man who was so anxious to
find relations as to try to palm himself off
on Mr. John Henderson, of Carroll town
ship as his son Nathan, has succeeded in
finding a relative. His Uncle Sam has
claimed him, asserting that he has a right
to his service for several years, and has con
sequently taken him to Carlisle Barracks.
The Sehocppe case has again been brought
before the Supreme Court, by his counsel,
making application for a review of the case
under the recent law. Judge Reed replied
that he did not know how the case could
now be before tho court, from the fact that
it had already been decided before the pas
sage of the law. It is probable that a new
writ of error will be issued.
An Insurance Agent at Cleveland, Ohio,
writes, "A lumber horso ran away with a
bob-tail wagon, and tipped in the street
over a small woman and six elderly children.
The horso began to cry and tho wagon
bled freely at tho nose, but otherwise the
street is doing well. No insurance.
If your property is not insured go at once
to Lewis Potter, and get insured in the
uEtna Insurance Company, of Hartford.
Hoop Skirts. Godey't Lady' Book, for
March, has tho following: "From tho
numerous sources of reliable information,
including tho latest advice from the courts
of France and London, and tho leading
modistes in general, the subject of crinoline
has had a thorough overhauling, and the
unanimous decision is in favor of wearing
tho hoop skirts at all evening and full-dress
toilettes, in not over two yards circumference
at tho bottom ; while for general uso and,
all outdoor toilettes, the sizes vary from two
to two and a quarter yards.
The weather statistics for the month of

Attempted Escape of a Murderer. Quite
an excitement, was caused in Huntington,
last "Tuesday morning by the attempt of
Bohner, one of tho Pieghtal murderers, to
escape from jail,, by knocking down the
keeper with his hand cuffs, when he enter
ed the coll. ' After striking him so as to ren
der him, partially insensible, Bohner en
deavored; to, rpacli the keys, but the keep
er recovered, and grappling with him, called
for help, and another prisoner came to his
assistance and, inflicted several severe
.wounds upon, Bohner with a poker, before
he was secured. Tomorrow is the day set
for the execution of the murderers.

Mall Change. Another ehatigo has been
made in the mail facilities from this sec
tion of the county, and again a person
wishing to write to ILtrrisburg or even to
Duncannon must wait two days for tho let
ter to reach its destination, the stage not
arriving at Newport in timo to connect with
tho mail train East. For a week or two
past, the mail has been leaving too early for
those residing west of this office, and con
sequently they petitioned for this change by
which they gain nothing, unless it be tho
satisfaction of knowing that their letters
are lying at Newport, and that we enjoy no
better a.vomimxlations than they. The
whole matter might be arranged so as to
please all, if tho noon train would carry tho
mail. As it is, tho last change benefits no
one except tho mail carrier, while it is a
disadvantage to those really anxious to have
a letter go through without delay. Some
arrangement should at once bo nisulo by
the post office department to remove all
cause of complaint, as the present arrange
ment is one that gives general dissatisfaction.
lPnblic Sales. We call attention to tho
following sales of personal property, bills
for which have been printed at this ofiice :
On tho 8th hist, Win. Glen, at his resi
dence, near Shermansdalo will sell horses,
cows, wagons and various farming imple
ments. On the ICth inst., Win. Garlm will sell at
his residence in Centre twp., 1J miles
west of Blooinfield, four head of work hor
ses, cows, young cattle, wagons;, plows, &c.
Ou tho 22nd inst., at his residsnce three
miles east of Bloomflcld, D. Myers, sr., will
sell three cows, eight sheep,, wagon, har
ness, cooper's tools, and various other im
plements. Newport Items. The ice-houses in this
place have all boon illlod with good, solid
ice, although it was feared that tho supply
would bo short, but thanks to the last cold
snap which has caused such a bountiful
supply. Over 300,000 pouuds were ship
ped to Harrisburg during tho last few
days, and found ready salo at pretty high
figures. Should tho cold weather continue
a few days longer, tho above figures will be I
swelled to at least 1,000,000 pounds.
The revival in the Methodist and Luther
an Churches still continue, services every
evening for tho past mouth, at which ma
ny persons have been converted. Much
good has been done, and much more can
yet be expected, as the interest appears to
increase each evening, and the churches,
crowded every night.
Trouble at the Pcnu'a Hotel. On Mon
day afternoon last, a man by the name, of
George Kiner, of Bealo township, was
stopping at tho Penn'a Hotel in Patterson,
and whilst at the tabic, commenced indul
ging, in tho presence of ladies, in rough
and obscene language, when Mr. C oilman,
tho proprietor, ordered him to l'jave tho
house. Kiner retired to the bar-room, but
positively refused to go further. Mr. Coff
man and he then grappled, and in tho
first round both went to the. floor, with Ki
ner under, who then cried ''enough," when
ho was allowed to get up and leave the
house. After Kiner wer.t outside, he then
picked up a broken bottle.tnd with great
violence, threw it in tho door, striking Mr.
Coft'man on tho right arm, and inflicting
a painful and dangerous wound. Drs.
Crawford and ltundio were called, who
promptly dressed tho lacerated arm. Juni
The following bill has been passed by
