on Tuesday evening, December 23rd,

of the echools to appear before the
public, and as the proceeds are to be
appropriated to the use of the schools,
in purchasing blinds, &c, it is hoped
there will be a good attendance.

New School House. The progress
and popularity of the common school
system of Pennsylvania are exhibited
in the great improvements which have
been made in school buildings and fur
niture. Neat, substantial, and even
eltgant school houses are being built
every year. One of these was erected
during the past summer ntar the Cuba
Mills, in Fermanagh township, and a
new school for the accommodation of
the citizens of that neighborhood. It
will be known as the Cuba School. It
was long needed in that locality. The
bouse, 28x30 feet iti size, is of brick,
and was built after a plan fouud in Dr.
J. P. Wickerseam's School Economy.
The cost of the building, furnituie and
outbuildings was about $1800. It is
pleasantly located, well constructed,
amply large, with a portico in front,
closet for baskets, clothing apparatus,
&c The ceiling is 12 feet high. The
blackboard contains 130 square feet of
ruifaoe. It furnished with the
"Gothic Desk," a neat table, coal stove
of sufficient size, Camp's outline maps
and Sanders' primary charts. The
building does credit to the citizens of
Fermanagh township, and especially to
the present board of directors, which is
composed of the fo'.Iowing named gen
tlemen : William Banks, John Bal en-
tine, Isaac Saylor, Joseph Roterock,
George Hower and R. A. Reynolds.
Mr. C. Bartley was the contractor. Mr.
J. F. Allen, a veteran in the service, is
teacher for this session. He is at work
with 45 pupils. More such bouses are
needed is J oniata.
Court Proceedings continued from '
Commonwealth vs. John Troup, lo-
dictment Fornication and Bastardy.
Continued till February term.
Commonwealth vs. J. English West,
George Fry and David Muthersbaugh.
Indictment Arson. The history of
this case is as follows : John inn, the
prosecutor, lives, and has lived for some
25 or 30 years, in Licking I 'reek Val
ley, between the Black Log mountain
and Black Oak ridge. The late Reu
ben C. Hale claimed the land which
Winn resided on and claimed to bald
by virtue of squatter sovereignty."
Several years' litigation took place be
tween the two, for its possession. In
the meantime, Hale disposed of the
land, or his claim to it, in some way,
and a few years ago, one of the defend
ants, J. Englith West, turned up in
this country, representing himself as
the agect of Wheeler & West, and in
their name commenced proceedings in
ejectmeut against Winn, in Mifflin
county. Ouce or twice, Winn in the
legal tilt was was successful, but J.
Eugiish, with bull dog tenacity carried
tbe case to the Supreme Court, on ap
peal, by which inn's judgment was
set aside, aud on tbe last trial of the
case, in Miffiiu county, J. English car
ried the day, and gained the verdict
Winu, though notified to leave, stub
bornly refused, and a writ of ouster was
issued against him out of the Mifflin
county court, and Sheriff Muthers
baugb, George Fry aod J. English went
on the ground some time last summer,
to formally dispossess Winn. On that
occasion, after removing all Winn's
effects out of bis house and stable,
YY est set fire to both, and tbey were
totally destroyed. Winn, thereupon
made complaint against all three before
Esquire Bartley, alleging that the
buildings were located in Junia
county. A warrant for their arrest was
issued, and tbe defendants arrested,
but liberated by Associated Judg
Troxell, of Mifflin county on Habeas
Corpus, on the ground that the build
ings were located in Mifflin county, con
sf quently Squire Bartley had no juris
diction. Another complaint made be
fore Justice Middagb, resulted in the
aaiue manner. However, on a bill of
indictment having been laid before tbe
Grand Jury, at September term, a true
bill was found. Tbe Commonwealth
proved the burning of the buildings,
but failed to locate them in Juniata.
It was proved, however, that under tbe
Act of 1831, providing for the bound
ary between Mifflin and Juniata conn-
lies, the line should run on the summit
of tbe Black Log mountain, from the
Huntingdon county line to the river.
But fortunately for the defeudaots,
when the Commissioners ran the line in,
tbey started the line south of that
mountain, at the Huntingdon county
line, and followed Black Oak ridge,
down below inn's, and then crossed
ever to tue Black Log mountain proper
and theucc to the river, thus Tunning
all the disputed land into Mifflin coun
ty. While tbe Court was convinced of
the mistake of the Commissioners, yet,
nevertheless, as both the Mifflin and
Juniata county authorities had recog
nized the line, so mistakenly run, ever
since, it had to decide that it Lad no
jurisdiction in tbe premises, and hence
ordered tbe jury to acquit which it did
This was a great triumph for J. Eng
lish West, but very "melancholy " for
General John Winn, of Winn's Gap,
to have to answer such foolish questions
and then be defeated.
Commonwealth vs. John Shinelcff.
Indictment Pcrjuiy. This case grew
out of the litigation prior to the Sep
tember court, and had been continued
from that term. On the case being
called, the District Attorney stated
that he had no case, upon which the
jury found Captain Jack not guilty, aod
saddled the costs on tbe prosecutor,
"J acker Campbell."
Commonwealth vs. David Fink. In
dictment Aggravated Assault and
Battery This case grew out of an ar
gument betweou the prosecutor, Mitch
ell Varnes, aod the defendant, as to
their respective merits as railroad em1
ployees. Prosecutor gave defendant
tbe lie. who struck out with his '- right
duke," which prosecutor caught upon
bis "smeller." A tussle ensued with
little or no further damage, x'rosecu-
tcr proved his nose broken by fiist bio
After bearing evidence for Common
wealth, District Attorney entered
nolle pi o$. as to aggravated assault, aod
the defendant then pled guilty to the
simrle assault and battery. Sentenced
to pay a fine of $15 and costs.
Commonwealth vs. Tbaddeus War
ner. Indictment False Pretence. A,
J. Hertzler keeps a store at Locust
Grove. Defecdant ran a bill there on
the strength, as Hertzler alleged, of his
ronraaentatlon that be bad $100 OO
deposit at Doty, Parker k Co's bank
He bad no such deposit, and on failing
to pay the bill, the suit was instituted.
Tbe iurv cleared the defendant and di
vided tbe costs equally.
Commonwealth vs. Calvin Polm In
diotment Assault aud Battery. This
was another of those contemptibly petty
fum that should never have been
brought into court. Tbe prosecutrix.
Mrs. Sheets, is a sister of defendant.
She and defendant's wife got into a jaw
ing scrape about some boffs, when de
fendant interfered and tried to keep the
peace. Prosecutrix abused bim foully
wben he took bold of ber and led or
pushed her away from his own door.
She then struck him, and be set
i;rhtl in tha boot business. Verdict
of the jury served her right, by clear
ing the defendant7anddivTaing"rhe ;

We had bardly supposed there was
any one demon euough in Mifflin county
to attempt to throw a train off the
track on a high embankment alongside
the river, where there is lioui 8 to 10
feet of water, but it seems we have one,
as a villainous effort was made on Thurs
day evening to throw off tbe Fast Line
east of the station. Tbe locomotive on
that evening struck a tic which bad
been placed on tbe track near tbe rocky
cut and carried it along to the depot.
where it got under the cow-caU-her,
throwing tbe front part of the engine
off the rails and tearing up tbe rails in
all directions. There were nine coaches
on tbe train, and the bare idea what
might have been the result, is enough
to make one shudder. Those engaged
in such fiendish woik must place little
value on their own lives, for if caught
in the act indignant passengers would
be fully justified in torturing them to
death on the spot.
A barn belonging to John Toder, in
Union township, was destroyed by fire
on Saturday night, the 29th ult., to

Tbe horses and cattle were saved. Tbe
origin of the fire is unknown. Tbe
place was rented by Lewis liar man,
who, of course, is also a great loser by
the fire. There was no insurance, the
policy having expired in June last, and
unfortunately was not renewed.

HUNTINGDON COUNTT, AS PER HUNT
Ws are indebted to tbe Hollidaye-
burg Standard following particulars of
the death of Levi Smith, of Union
township, Huntingdon county, father of
Drr-Or-Wt SnrrrhT-of-Hottidatsuuig :
A short distance from his residence a
saw-mill bad been erected by his sou
Samuel S. and snn-in law, and it was
bis habit to pay frequent visits to the
same. ' On Monday, November 17fh,
be paid one of bis accustomed visits to
the mill. While walking across a plank
which partially covered tbe pit into
which tbe sawdust fell, a scantling which
be was holding in bis hand was caught
by the saw. Tbe shock was so v.oleot
and unlooked for that Mr. Smith was
thrown against the saw, tbe right side
of bis head striking the sharp teeth.
Tbe result was that bis bead was sev
ered half through, and from the terri
ble wound thus inflicted several ounces
of brain matter exuded. Notwith
standing the fearful nature of bis in
juries tbe victim of this unhappy acci
dent lingered until Sunday, 30th ult.,
when death came to his relief and . he
entered into his eternal rest. i r. Smith
was in 67th year of his age. He was
one of the best citizens of Huntingdon
county, and many there are who will
