The particulars of the seunilal in which

respected resi .'entsof the village wire im
plicated, with McDiarmid's confession, his
resignation of the charge 'and subsequent
departure from the village, which was 'pre
t ipitated by the threats of indignant resi
ilents, are already known to our readers.
The seciind chapter in this scandal was en
acted on Saturday, the 2'tli ult., when Mc
Miarmid, who suddenly made his .appear
ance in the village the night previous, was
arrested, and hentcneed by Mr. James
Dickson. Justice of the Peace, to jail for
three months or a line of $25 and costs, for
carrying tire-arms, and, in default of hav

she would not keep liiiu.itr.il that he should

his wife ami children, and shook hands
with some neighbors who were in the room
at the time. U afterward went, tip to

he was arrested, charged by his wife with

the lock-up, where, after being searched,
and a pistol that he said he curried to pro

a chain of ice which owes nothing for

THK flltK.tr ICR linilXIB.
A Courier reporter was sent to the Falls
yesterday and learned that the ice bridge
lieeaiiM! an assured fact on Sunday la.st.
For some days a large amount of snoir
covered ice from Lake Erie had been pass
ing over the Falls and alxiut the beginning
of the week old inhabitants began to
look exxrtanly for in ice bridge.
At aliout eight .o'clock Hmulny mrit--r
ing the nceumalatcl nia.-wi ofiee enuie" to a
stand-still b'-iieatli the aiisoension bridge,'
and the tvnvhcrs licgn to linoi. there
would be a bridge with a . uioorh sinfice
it thing unprecedented so fur hisinry
or tradition ln:ar record, lint th'1 hojie
wassiKin dispelled, for the huge dam of
ice suddenly U-gan to heave, giiud i nd
break up into fragments with a loud nuis".
which is descriU-d as being exceedingly
trying to the nerve. At ten o'clock there
was a second stand still, nnd it socmctl cer
tain that the bridge had been formed, but.
at two in the afternoon there was a third
and mors severe disturbance as the prison
ed waters exerted their gaint strength in
an ellovt to le tree. Die hattlo was a
grand one. Vast quaniries of ice. and snow
were caught in the water's arms and tossed
hither and thither like playthings, lighting
and struggling with one another and grind
ing themselves to fragments. Great hum
mocks weighing hundreds of tons were
pushed into the air and remained there as
monuments of the fearful battle. Larg
boulders were torn from the shore and
swept into the stream.
The slow, awful strength of the infuriiated
waters was so apparent that it seemed as if
they must rend the great gorge in tw ain and
escape from their thraldom by some n 'v
road; but there was only one gateway fr
them, ami as they could not freak the
mile wide dam in two they lifted it ii
iHhlily and swept away beneath, still raging
but completely conquered by the annie
