NEW BL00MFIELD, PENN'A.
Tuesday, July 12, 1870.
The Funding bill has passed both
houses and has been signed by the Presi

the oath, and .assumed the duties of that
Cabinet Changes are talked about
with so much positiveness that although
the rumors of changes are contradicted,
there must be some truth in the reports.
"Where there is so much smoke there
must be some fire, and it is probable some
change in the State department will be
made before long.
A Teruible Massacre is reported to
have taken place in l'ckin. The natives
appear to have made an attack on the
French quarters and to have murdered
.men, women and children, not even spar
ing the members of the French Embassy.
This will be likely to raise trouble be
tween China and France. A French
fleet has already been ordered to proceed
' to Chinese waters.
European Affairs look rather equal
ly just at present, owing to the dctermi-.
uation or the Spanish Cortes to place
Prince Leopold on the Spanish throne.
France strongly objects to any German
prince occupying that position, alleging
that it is a movement in the interest of
Prussia. If Spain does not reconsider
the vote in favor of Prince Leopold,
France expresses a determination to fight,
rather than to allow themselves to be
out-generuled by Prussian diplomacy, and
unless Spain should back out the result
may be a European War.
The Ingome Tax is after all retained,
though at a reduced rate, and the ex

stead of $1,000, as formerly. This, it is
calculated, will raise above $20,000,000.
of which all but six millions is paid to
Government officials for assessment and
collection. The action of the Senate dis
carding that law, was reconsidered, and
the law as amended above was retained
for two years longer. If no better faith
is kept in regard to the limit than was
. kept before, we see no use of specifying
any length of time for which the law
shall remain in force.
' On the 1st inst., at 2 o'clock the
house of Nathan Fenn, a highly respected
citizen of Jlilfurd, Conn.; was entered by
burglars. Hearing a disturbance, Fenn
arose and encountered the burglar, who

The previous evening Fenn was known
to have had $1,000 in the right hand

was going to New York to make purcha

the burglars. The money, however, had

Horrible Iudluu Atrocities..
A letter from South Pass says that on
June 25th, the Iudians stole from that
vicinity 9 horses and mules. The citi
zens pursued the Indians, but, all their
horses being gone,' could not retake the
stock. They found the bodies of Do.
Bard, Harvey Morgan and Mr.Mason,
they having been captured and tortur
ed to death. Morgan was scalped, the
ring-bolt of a wagon driven through his
head, and the tendons down his spine
taken out for bow strings. This was done
by Arrapahoes and Sioux.
t Dlstnrbance at a Church.
Quite an exciting scene occurred yes
terday morning at St. Paul's Lutheran
Church, St. John and Brown streets, and
before order was restored the police was
compelled to make arrests. It seems
that for some time past the congregation
worshiping there have been divided, one
patty claiming that the Rev. Mr. Keiche
pastor, had no legal right to preach in the
pulpit, whilo the other supported the di
vine. The minority, on Saturday last,
obtained an injunction from the Court
restraining Mr. Keiche from preaching in
in the church edifice.
Yesterday morning Rev. Dr. Mann, by
request, supplied the pulpit for a time.
He had just closed the opening exercises
and was beginning his discourse, when a
large number of the congregation rose to
their feet and left the church. A few
moments later the side walk in front of
the premises was completely blocked up
Those assembled appeared much excited
and language of a threatening character
passed between them. While this was
going on the Mayor had detailed a squad
of policemen, under Sergant Gilchrist,
to the church to preserve order. Reach
ing the place the officers experienced con
siderable trouble in clearing the sidewalk
and it was not until they caused the arrest
of four persons that the mob dispersed.
Soon after the disturbance occurred on
the sidewalk, Rev Dr. Mann ceased his
discourse and left the building. He was
surrounded on the street by an excited
mob. and officers were obliged to protect
him from violence and escort him home
In consequence of the trouble the Trus
tees of the church closed the building,
and no further service were held during
the day. Phil., Inquirer of the 4th inst.
Unwilling Balloon Ascension.
The Shclbino (Mo.) Democrat says
the balloon that goes with De Haven's
circus seems fated to give origin to start
ling incidents. To the list of adventures
and accidents that have attended it, we
add another thrilling scene at this place,
on the evening of the 10th ult. It was
inflated in the presence of 1,500 people,
the wind blowing sharply from the east.
The aeronaut took his position in the
frail bark,the rope that held it to the earth
was loosened, and the ballon sheering as
it started, a sharp east wind blowing at
the time, it caught a second party, who
became entangled in the ropes, and rapid
ly ascended with the involuntary explor
er hanging by the feet. fc
At the height of thirty feet the unwil
ling traveler succeeded in catching the
horizontal rope near the bottom of the
balloon with his hands, and thus support
ed mounted to a height of 400 feet, and
moved rapidly in a westerly direction.
The rapid cooling and condensation of
heated air and gasses that supported it,
and the extra weight of a huudred and
eighty pounds, caused it to descend al
uiost as fast as it went up, landing the
two passengers with a heavy concussion
upon on the eaves of a house, from which
they fell, bruised, gashed and fainting, to
the ground. At first they were supposed
to be killed, but prompt medical attention
soon resuscitated them, and their hurts
proved not very serious.
The emotions of the man hanging by
his feet and hands alone, and moving rap
idly through the air, at an elevation of
four or five hundred feet, many be better
imagined thun described. It was the
most thrilling scene we ever witnessed,
and we do not care to see the like again.
A Human Foot Trlnt Found 800 Feet
The Portsmouth Tribune says : Col.
T. J. Graham, while up the Kanawha
river a few days since, saw the perfect
impression of a man's foot in a lump of
can n el coal taken from the mines at Can
nelton, ten miles below the falls. He
tells us that the impression of the foot is
exact and perfect in all its details, leav
ing no room to doubt its identity for a
moment. A hill eight hundred feet high
is immediately over the coal mine from
which the foot print was taken. As tho
CoL is a good judge of a man's foot, (or
a woman's cither), and a gentleman of
reliability, we leave tho geologists to ar
gue it out.

A Woman asserts her Rights Manfully.
Montana has a citizen named Miss
Given Evans, who, as many readily be
inferred from her name, is by birth a
Welsh woman. About a month ngo she
entered the United States District Court
in Montana, and asked to have a naturali
sation certificate made out for her. The
puzzled functionary settled his spectacle
on his nose, examined the applicant with
surprise and then plunged into. the Uni
ted States statutes, in which he found no
legal reason why a yoxing woman should
not be duly naturalized, and so Miss
Evans received her papers, with which
she boldly went to the land office of
the Territory. There she asked a clerk
to make out her declaratory statement to
pre-empt one hundred and sixty acres of
public land. The gentleman, like the
other, was somewhat astonished by her
request, but, examining authorities, he
found no reason to repel the applicant,
and her certificate was duly filed as No,
J.000. The energetic lady then went to
work on her new acquired land, and built
a house, and set about improving her
farm, fencing it, and otherwise showing
that, having it, she intended to keep it.
She now has a cow, a yoke of oxen, and
all the usual farming tools generally used
by pioneers. Her .land is in Deer Lodge
Valley ,and someday the Northern Pacific
railroad will run close to it, making it
quite a little fortune.
A mulatto woman of Cincinnati,
named Henrietta Ward, brings a suit
against one Mr. Ward and a woman named
Rebecca Boyd, for the recovery of $20,000
damages. The plaintiff sets up that in
1853 she was residing in this city, and
had been living in Coventry for a number
of years; that she was free, and the fact
well-known and authenticated ; but, des
pite this, Ward and the woman Boyd con
spired to deprive her of her liberty for
the sake of gain and reward, and, further
more, that they succeeded.
She claims that she was. abducted by
them from her peaceful home in this city
and carried to Kentucky, where Ward
held her in servitude for a period of
seven months. He then sold her to one
Gerard Bronson, of Mississippi, for the
sum of $1,050. This gentlemen took her
to Texas, and there worked her as a com
mon field-hand for fifteen years, without
hire, reward, or emolument she remain
ing there in the bonds of shivery until
her shackles were knocked off by Presi
dent Lincoln. She therefore claims that
she is entitled to recover from Mr. Ward
the full value of her services for the fifteen
years she was deprived of her liberty by
his unlawful net.
Freaks of a Hull
Last Tuesday night, about 7 o'clock, a
bull of immense proportions ran down
Noble street in Philadelphia at railroad
speed. He stationed himself on the
wharf, took a survey of the surrounding
and then leaped into tho Delaware. He
snorted and puffed awhile, turned up
stream and paddled awsiy at a lively rate.
. The crew of Harbor Police boat No. 1,
uuder command of Sergant English, star
ted after tho fugitive bovine and a lively
race was tho result. First the bull would
lead, then the police, and this kept up
to the amusement of a large concourse
of spectators, for fully three quarters of
an hour, when one of the officers threw n
lasso which caught the bull by the horns
and after a perilous voyage of a half-mile
his majesty was safely anchored on shore.
fl3f On the 5th inst., a curious inci
dent occurred in the Christiana, at Wil
mington. Tho little harbor tug-boat
Martha, whilo clearing from a wharf,
drifted against one of the piers of the
Market street bridge, careened over, and
threatened to capsize, whereupon her
crew deserted her, thinking she was go
ing to sink. She righted, however, and
started ahead, making a bee-line for the
wharf of the Eliza Ilancnx, across tho
river, after which she turned down along
the wharf, and making in between tho
sloop and the wharf, was captured and
her machinery stopped. The whole af
fair oocupiod less timo than it requires to
describe it; but for a moment, while the
little tug was cruising about without a
crew, she created a decided consternation.
