Resistance to the Dbaft. One day
last week, while Dr.'G. "W. Stroheoker,of
Chess Springs, was engaged notifying" the
drafted men of Clearfield township, this
county, to report for examination at Pro
vost Marshal headquarters, his horss was
shot from under him by some miscreant
unknown. Tho time was after nightfall.
and the place a dark woods, and it is not
certain that the bullet that "killed the horse
was not intended for the Doctor. This
act is most criminal and outrageous.
Many people may be, and no doubt are
bitterly opposed, to the system of conscrip
tion, but that system under the present
condition of affairs is necessary and a lava,
and no one can resist ito enforcement
without rendering himself amenable to veij
severe penalties. Especially ia it most
senseless in him who is opposed to the
system to manifest his disapprobation of
the same by assaulting a mere executor of
the law. Better assault the law makers,
or Gen. George B. M'Clellan, who has the
Luuor of first suscresting the draft as a
measure necessary to the filling up of our;
armies. This outbreak is the legitimate
result of the teachings of such papers as
the Dem. & Sent, and Johnstown Demo
crat. It were wise in these to call off their
dogs, for nothing has ever been gained and
nothing will be gained in an attempt of
illy advised men to measure mere physi
cian strength with the Government. i

ist of drafted men on our outside to-day,

Correspondence of The Alleghanian.
Johnstown, September 25, 1864.
A sad accident occurred last week to a
son of Rev. A. C. Ahrenfeldts, of this
place. He was engaged in oiling the
machinery connected with the rolls, at
the" Mill, and lying down in the vicinity
of the fly-wheel to oil a journal, his legs
were caught in the monster wheel, and
one of them crushed in such a manner as
to necessitate amputation at the knee.
Hopes are entertained of his recovery. -
A man named Rively was killed by a
freight traia-about three miles cast of this
place last week. He had gone back to
flag an approaching train, and sitting
down on the track'was overcome by sleep.
Ihe next tram ran over him. This
brakeman had worked out his notice" to
qut, and was running his last trip, when
ne lost his life. Another brakeman
named Luther, from Carroll township, this
oounty, was. killed at the east end of the
tunnel, while making his first trip. The
accident was caused by a couple of stock
cars running off the track, by which a

To-day the new Catholic church was
dedicated, and it was the occasion of one
of . the most imposing ceremonies ever
witnessed in our city. Bishop Domeneo,
of Pittsburg, assisted bv nine Priests,
dedicated the building to the service of
Almighty God, after which the grand and
solemn Pontifical High Mass was celebra
ted. The music was under the leadership
of Miss Maguire, assisted by the Misses
Crouse, and was most admirably rendered.
Rev. Pollard, formerly of Loretto, this
county, preached the dedication sermon,
and tho Right Rev. Bishop preached at
Vespers. Fully 2,000 persons witnessed
the interesting ceremonies. Universal
praise is awarded to the designers and
builders of this noble edifice. It will
be an oraament not ouly to4 the growing
prosperity of our town, but also to the
religious spirit of the congregation. Too
much praise cannot be awarded to Rev.
P. M. Oarvey, pastor, and Messrs. Easly,
and Crouse, contractors, for the interest
they have manifested in pushing forward
the work to an early completion.
Two brave soldiers" belonging to the
12th Cavalry, who wero shot at Charles-
town, Va., in a recent cavalry charge,
and supposed to be killed, have failed to

Long, formerly a clerk in the company's
store of this place, was shot in the head,
and was sent to a hospital,.. but has not
since been heard of. It is thought he
died on the road, and was buried in an
unknown grave. He was kuown here as
a brave, generous young man, and his loss
will be felt by his many friends. Sergt.
Cramer was at the same time shot through
the bowels, and as the wound was mortal,
it is generally believed by his regiment
that he is now no more. Brave boys!
