perience was somewhat similar
those of other merchants of
l, Pt day, and nothing especially
ewortliy occurred during his

naither of Michael and Jacob
ltbk, several years deceased, in
takdng bees, of which sho had a
'."isiderable number. The Cook

John C. Fetter, Esq., in tho
days of a young aud crude postal
system, here stainjK'd "10 cents
duo" and "25 cents duo" on
closely written, wafered letters,
envelopes in thoso days not being
in vogue, ho being postmaster in
connection with tho tailoring
business. The latter business
did not interfere with his occ u
pation to a great extent. We
venture to say that the mail mat
ter sent out from the McCou
nellsburg postoffice in one clay
at present would exceed that sent
out under Mr. Fetter's adminis
tration during a whole year, al
though postotficos in the neigh-
hood.are more numerous, and the
population has not materially in
creased. Mr. Fetter was an un
cle of the members of the Selsor
family William F. Selsor, of
Mercersburg, and John, and sis
ters, of this place. lie was an
obliging official aud would not al
low a letter to remain long in his
care if there was an opportunity
for prompt delivery. lie, with
his family, moved to Fairfield,
Iowa, in the latter part of the '40s,
and he has long since been gath
erod to his fathers. The writer,
just here, recalls another case of
comparison in postal affairs fav
orable to the present. lie has in
his possession a letter of that
time of only a few lines, from
Peoria, Illinois, on which tho post
ago was 50 cents. For this sum
he could now mail a pair of boots
across the continent, or to auy of
"Uncle Sam's" possessions.
About 1850, the mercantile spi
rit that had its abode in the an
cient structure, took its flight,
like a sheeted (?) ghost, never to
return again, and a new enter
prise, and ono of advancement,
took pjssession. It was in this
building that Fulton County's
first newspaper, Tho Fulton Dem
ocrat, made its appearance under
the ablo management of James B
San'som, docoasod. This journal
was started at Bedford under the
title of tho Jackson Democrat and
was removed here at the forma
tion of the county. The editorial
tourneys in which Brother San
som were engaged are well re
membered by many of our older
citizens. After remaining for a
year or more, the Democrat took
up new quarters, and tho rooms
were fitted for school purjwses.
James Allen hero exploited his
peculiar methods of enforcing or
dor and imparting knowledge,
and was followed by Messrs,.
Crooks and Rhodes, whoso sys
terns had more of common sense
and loss of cruelty and harshness
than Mr. Allen's. Wo believe tho
old McCounellsburg Band then
took possession of it and mado it
headquarters. Tho old band
mado many trips to different
points in tho county, and mado a
great deal of history as well as
music. During tho war of the
rebellion, Messrs. Tostou & Bax
tor carried on carriage making
in these all-purposo premises.

His Counsel W. S. Angleman, Made a
Strong Plea For Mercy In His Behalf.
New Brunswick, Sept. 21 Wil-1
Ham Darling, who shot and killed
Harry Dunham at Now Market
four years ago, pleaded non vult
to the indictment of murder in
the first degree at the court of
Oyer and Terminer this morning
aud Justice Collins sentenced him
to a term of twenty years in the
The arraignment this morning
was a surprise! as it was generally
understood that Prosecutor Voor
hees was not yet ready and that
the arraignment would not take
place until Tuesday.
Tho plea was the result of an
understanding between the Pros
ecutor and W. S. Angleman, of
Plaiutield, council for the de
fence. The killiug of Dunham took
place August L'Oth, 1!)5. Darl
ing was indicted for murder iu
tho first degree shortly after tho
fatality took place. Darling was
finally captured this .summer at
McCounellsburg,. Fulton county,
Pennsylvania, and has since been
lodged in tho Middlesex county
jail in this city.
Darling was brought beforo
Justice Collins this morning. Ho
was apparently cool and self com
posed, lie showed no sigus of
nervousness. After Lawyer Au-
gioman had offered the plea of
non vult, which had already been
accepted by the prosecution, he
made a strong appeal for mercy
for his client. His speech was
an excellent one.
During his remarks he intro
duced an affidavit by Edward
Mitchell, a colored man who wit
nessed tho murder. Mitchell de
clared that the quarrel started
during a game of pool at Dautz's
hotel, New Market. Dunham
mado an insulting remark about
Darling's mother and there were
several words passed. Then
Mitchell said that Darling fired a
shot over Dunham's head to in
timidate him. Dunham started
for Darling as if to come to close
quarters and Darling shot again,
tho bullet striking Dunham iu the
Prosecutor Voorhees made no
reply to Lawyer Angleman's
speoch, and Justice Collins im
mediately sentenced Darling to a
term of twenty years in State's
prison. Darling showed no signs
of agitation when tho sentence
