day last by the freaks of a run-a-way horse
The horse became frightened at the rat

OrOur former townsman, Mr. George P
Ulcim, paid a flying visit to his many friends
in this neighborhood, on Tuesday last.
George resides nrsr Iloboken, N. J., and
is one pf the proprietors of the celebrated
Schwann Brewery near that place. If the
.lager he brought with him, a sample of
..which we tested slightly, is a fair specimen
. or the 4wet goods" dispensed by that exten
sive establishment, we must confess that the
"Schwann" is clearly entitled to the first
premium for good lager. The sample we
tested, rightly of coarec. was the best wc
ever drank, and was as rich in quality as is
George in those characterises which go to

Kirby Davis has opened a Classical and

experience as a successful educator o

Academy at Blairstown, Is. F., where he
taught to the improvement of the pupils
Tinder his chame, and to the acceptance
-of parents. The school is located in o
of the most beautiful and healthy sections
of the mountain region. Shawnee, the
site of the school, is one of the oldest
Fettled points in Monroe county, is but
Ahr.ce miles from the Del. Water Gap,
iacd five miles from Stroudsburg, both o
which points are railroad depot3, and is con
wquently easy of access to persons from
abroad. A more delightful point at
-winch to place children, or a person bet
tcr qualified to take charge of their men-
cal, moral and physical education can
Siardly be found.
Mr. Dairiel Coss, of Middle Smithfield
township, in this county,' had his right

in escaping with no more sirious in

Friday last. lie had gone to the station

fright at a locomotive, and for a time be
came unmanageable. In attempting to
subdue the horse Mr. Huston was thrown
with some violence upon his face, which
was badly cut and bruised, aud consider

most warlike character. The securing of
peace wIHiout a struggle is an idea made
obsolcte the attitude and preparation
of the opposing governments. Austria
assumed3 the character of the belligerent
boy, andjplacing the chip of its own will
upcu its shoulder, dared Prussia to knock
it off. Prussia, determined not to be
dared, kuoeked the chip off by marching
into and taking possession of llplstcin,
from which Austria at once receded and
decided to resort to the sword as a meaus
to settle the trouble. Both countries have
powerlul armies, and as Italy takes a
hand in, and the liberals of Europe gen
erally squint an cyo at the matter, in hopes
of discovering an opportunity to make
things ,play to the advantage of liberal in
stitutions and constitutional and represen
tative government, the contest promises
to be a long and bloody one. Its final re
suit may, and we hope will, be the wiping
out of the dogma of the " Divine right of
Kings," and the establishment of the
living and eternal principle that "all
nower is inherent in the people." The
two governments will probably bring 1,-
500.000 meu into the field, while Italy,
on its own account, to settle old scores
with Austria, will muster men by the
hundreds of thousands. Kossuth, Garri
baldi, and their revolutionary compeers
of 1S4S, are actively at work in hasten
iug matters to a crisis. A rumor prevail
cd, at the sailing of the l:iststcauier, that
war liad been officially declared by Aus

has already began, though no fighting

Principal, Mr. A. S. Christine, and his
talented assistants arc duly appreciated,
and in a fair way to be properly rewarded.
The plan of the Academy embraces thor

cure a complete English and Classical edu

average of institutions of like promincucc

when a special class for teachers, aud those
preparing to teach, will be formed, to
which instruction will be eiven iu the
Theory aud Practice of Teaching, on the
plans adopted in the leading Normal
schools of the tate, in connection with
the common and higher branches of edu
cation. In addition to the exertions of
the Principal and his Assistants, students
will have the advantage of the educa
tional experience of the County Super
intendent, who will also give instruc

teachers, or those who design becoming
teachers, is a rare one, and we would ad
vise such to make application for a circu

so many good looking folks and so much

not fail to be, in every sense of the term,
"a good time generally," and as the wives

will only permit us to take a look at and

well mixed together; then some more slush

.. Canadian-Bluster -
We observe that in the Canadian Parlia
ment" Canadians arc getting quiteFpugna'
cious, and have all at, once taken it into
their foolish noddles that they have been
misused by Uncle Samuel, and that for
security in the future they must make
present provision for an army to guard
against ulterior designs on our part. The
essence of buncombe, or braggadocio, has
soaked into their craniums, andthey fear
we intend annexing them whether they
are willing or. not. Now we have no
reason to love either Canada or the Cana
dians, but we will venture the sage advice
that they quit their foolishness, and set
tle themselves down into a decent state
of sobriety! When they were scared al
most to-death by the eccentricities of a
few thousand Fenians, Uncle Samuel
heeded their cries for help and scattered
the armies which threatened to squelch
them. A few hundred happened to slip
into Canada and gave the "Queen's own"
a most unmercifully drubbing; aud yet
it is the "Queen's own," who now bluster
and blow, and want to stand in belligc
rent attitude towards us want to line
the border and shake fists and make faces
at us, in return for our kindness in having
saved their hides from a well 'merited
tanuiug. They had better be quiet, or
they may wake up some fine morning to
fiud themselves inhabitants of an outside
dependency of ours a sort of second
southern confederacy, similar to that con
federacy with which they once so loving
ly cahoglcd to send fire and destruction
into our cities, pestilence into our land,
and to murder our President undersroinsr
the. pains of taxation without the -pleas
ures of representation. They have no
cause of complaint against us, but much
cause to love us. Our Government stood
by them when their fear came upon them
and helped them in the time of their sore dis
tress. We do not know but that it was
too fast. Indeed wc think the govern
nient might better have let the Fenians
worry them a little more, so as to hav
taken the blustering starch out of them
But Fenianism is not dead yet.
. A Heavy Hani by Pickpockets
One of the heaviest operations in pick
ing pockets that has lately taken place
occurred in Philadelphia last Friday even
insr, of which Aaron Kratz, a horse deal
er, belonging to Plunisteadville in this
county was the victim. Mr. Kratz has
been engaged in the horse trade in con
nection with Hocknian and Company, and
had just made arrancemcnts to start West
to buy stock. About 9 o'clock on Friday
evening, he started from his hotel in the
city to go to the depot of the Peunsyl
vania Bailroad, having previously put his
pockct-bpok containing his money in an
inside vest pocket. At the corner o
Ninth and Market, as he was getting up
on the rear platform of a passenger car
which was very much crowded, he put
his hand to his pocket to be sure that his
money was safe, when to his dismay he
found it was gone. On attempting to as
cend the platform he noticed a confusion
in the crowd, and the suspicion of the
light-fingered gentry being on hand, and
that they were engaged in the crowding
process, which is a plan they sometimes
take to divert attention while engaged at
their ucfarious business, at once flashed
upon his mind, but the sharpers were too
quick for him. The whole thing was but
the work or a moment, as but a very short
time elapsed from the time of hisgettingon
the car until he discovered his loss. The
pocket-book contained between 2500 and
S300U in money, besides a number of val
uablc papers, including several notes pay
able at the Doylestown jNational uiank.
Mr. Kratz is himself a heavy loser by the
operation. The matter' was at once pu
into the hands of the detectives, and a re
ward of 1000 offered for the recovery o
the money, with, however, but faint hopes
of obtaining it. Mr. Kratz of ccurse
abandoned his expedition to the West
and come home on Saturday. Bucks Co
The Supreme Court of this State, sit
ting at Wilkesbarre on Wednesday, gave
a decision in the case involving the righ
of deserters to vote, which came up from
Franklin county. The decision does not
seem to touch the constitutionality of the
law itself, but relates to the right of a
judge of election to reject the vote of a
man who is marked as a deserter on the
listofvoters. Messrs. WoodwaadStrong
and 1 hompson hold that the judge of
elections could not refuse a man s vote
until he had been tried and convicted of
desertion, while Messrs. Bead aud Ag
new were of the opinion that the judges
of elections were the proper persons to de
cide the question.
Under the recent act of Congress, all

-dollars ; those who have lost both eyes or
both hands, twenty-five dollars. This act
also restores pensions to soldiers employ

The Triple Homicide in York-County,
From a SpOcial Correspondent. , "
Lewisbebry, York Co , Pa., June 18.
A most flagrant murder was commit
ted in Warrington Township, this County,
on last evening. The victims, of this hor
rible tragedy are Mr. George Squibb, an
aged and highly respected citizen, his wife
and little grauddaughter. These three
persons constituted the entire family, Mr.
Squibb is still liviug, but is sinking rap
idly, and cannot survive many hours.
He has 14 wounds inflicted about the
head and face, three of which are within
thn comnass of the temple. Thirteen of
these wounds peutrated the brain, and
seemed to have been made with a sharp
instrument similar, to a morticing chisel,
The old lady' received but-three blows,
which look as is they had been inflicted
with a "billy" or "slung shot." The at
tending surgeon cntertaius slight hopes
of her recovery. The little granddaugh
ter was killed instantly, her skull being
broken by a blow from a club. The
stroke was evidently dealt by a left hand
This terrible affair is enshrouded iu
mvsterv. The position of the bodies
when found indicate that the murder was
committed at an early hour on Sunday
night, and while the family were making
preparations for retiring. The old man
must have been enticed from the house
and murdered on the porch, where his
body was found, shockingly mutilated.
He evidently made a desperate struggel
for his life, but was over-powered. Two
persons were certainly concerned in the
bloody work, aud the old lady and grand
daughter were doubtless assaulted at the
same time the struggle was going on out
side iho house.
The murder was discovered near noon
to-day (Monday), by the son of a neigh
bor who visited the house on an errand.
The neighbors immediately assembled.
and found the mutilated bodies of the rest
of the family. The object of tlfc mur
derers was doubtless to get possession ol
a sum of money which Mr. Squibb had
by industry and oconomy managed to lay
up. The bureau, was broken open, and a
pocket-book containing some 200 taken.
Hut he had money secreted iu different
parts of the house, and consequently the
greater portion of it escaped the notice of
the murderers and robbers.
No clue has been obtained to the per
netrators of this fiendish act. Several
suspicious characters w.ere observed in
the neighborhood on fcunday alteruoon
and this morning passed through Ross
ville, in the direction of York. They
were ostensibly engaged in selling the con
fession of Probst,, whose wholesale mur
der, if report be true, they have success
fully rivaled. Other circumstances tend
to implicate one acquainted with Mr
Squibb's pecuniary circumstances, as the
story and half log-house in which he re
sided with its primitive and dilapidated
surroundings, would not indicate any
hoard of wealth.
Criminals Struck by Lightning.
The Fort Leavenworth correspondent
of the Columbus (Ohio) Journal writes:
A peculiar freak of nature occurred
here on the 19th ult. Four men who
some crime, for
which crime warrants were issued for their
arrest, and the proper civil authorities
were in pursuit of, sought refuge under
a tree between here aud the city, about
half a mile from the fort, to protect them
from the rain, as it was raining very rap
idly and was uncommonly stormy, and
storms as are only known in Kansas
wind blowing with terrible fury and the
rain coming down in torrents, thunder
ing and lightning as though the clerk of
the weather was on a "bust." Well, as
we may say, by an interposition of Prov
idence, these men who were struck by
lightning, and, of course, instantly killed.
But, strange to say, although every man
was killed of the four, not a sign of the
freaks of the olectric fluid was visible on
the tree. The bodies (the men) were as
black as coal, aud two of them horribly
mutilated; the ground was torn up for
several feet around the tree, but it rc
