A PETITION is now circulating through
out the State, asking Congress to give

bounty from the'government, the sum of
eight dollars per month for the time

TllE cry of fire, raised some eveningB
ago by the burning of a chimney in the
vicinity of East Point, turned nearly the
whole population into the streets to look
np ihe fire. Mifflin is sensitive on that
question. A little noise of that kind
stirs her. Tbe Teachers Institute was
in session at tbe time. The cry broke it
np in a pell-mell manner. Some went
out at the windows instead of at tbe
doors all went out in a hurry. After
the excitement abated which it soon did,
when the character of the fire was learned
tbe Institute was again called and
completed the business of the evening,
A Parting- Glance at the Old Tear, and a
UraeUng for the Sew Tear.
We bear a noise like the report of a gun
in the distance. We rise "from our bed
and walk rw VSwndow and look out, and
as we etarejuto the thick fog that covers
the town and valley, we hear other re
port. We look at the' clock ; its bandti
indicate the hour of 1,'A. M, January
1st. 1S72. The sound of fi re arms that
we beard was made' by man rejoicing
over the advent of the New Year, and in
our heart we say to tbe' rejoicing party,
rejoice, for good cheer and peace reigns
here. Wbat-a contrast ! One year ago,
at the. very hour of ibU writing at 1
o'clock on the morning of January 1st,
187 the fire fiend was pouring out bis
fiery wrath upon our town. Peace and
quiet had fled from it, and' hundreds of
people frem the country for miles around,
with saddened-faces, looked on and saw
onr substance licked up by flames of fire.
The year 1S71 was a year full of calam
ity. From eur wayside town it took up
its dreadful march,' and scarce a time
since has it abated its fury. It com
passed the whole earth. Chicago, the
towns, prairies and forests of Minnesota,
Wisconsin, Michigan and Iowa, aud hun
dreds of districts in other States, bear
evidence to the fury of the calamities by
fire. Tbe earth contributed her share of
calamities. - Earthquakes in South
America swallowed up whole towns and
their unsuspecting inhabitants, and vol
canos poured forth their molten lava.
The winds and the waves were not idle
to the mandates of calamity, but lent
their fury, and shipwrecks in large num
bers upon every sea appear, and at one
grand sweep almost our entire whale fish
ing ships, cruising north of Hearing's
Staits, are gathered np and destroyed.
The rains and the floods, too, contrib
uted to the grand round that calamity
made, and iu the land of the ''Heathen
Chinee,' flooded vast districts, and
drowned thousands of people. Famine,
in her guant and ghostly form, bowed
approvingly to calamity, and Persia is in
the throes of hunger, aud thousands npon
thousands die there for want of food.
Violence and fraud, too, did homage to
calamity, and at the centre of European
civilization Paris held high carnival
for a time, and destroyed the finest pieces
of art aud labor, aud hastened thousands
in untimely graves.
" midst these ajip iliug scenes we have
much to thank Heaven for, and we should
ask God to give us the understanding
: near! to teel mat such calamities are al
ways lor man's good.
To our readtrs we extend greeting,
aud our best wishes fur their happiness
and the earnest hope that they may be
exempt from one and all of the calamities
that, during the old year 1S71, visited so
many of our brethren.

that it will cure poison of any kiud, both

take a spoonful of it internally and bathe

it requires eight times as much as for a
man. One of the extreme cases of snake
bites occurred eleven years ago. It had
been thirty days standing, and the pa

I gave him a spoouful of the oil, which
effected a cure. It will cure bloat in

between the two houses. 'Some two
weeks siuce, such was her nervous ex

physician discovered mild sy interns of
