Some person committed a very bold
theft at Mr. Joseph Miller's residence in
Centre township, last week. They had
just butchered, and while the family
were eating dinner, Rome persons carried
off the back bones, some Hitch and
several other pieces of a hog.
David M. Zook and son, citizens of
Miiflin county were out hunting game
in the woods, recently. The father saw
his son Samuel in the bushes, mistook
him for a piece of game, and delivered a
rille shot at him. Fortunately the bullet
did no more damage than to pass through
the son's clothes.
On Tuesday night the residencies of
Messrs. Peter Young and Jos. 13. Jack
son were entered by thieves. In the
house of the former they succeeded in
getting about two dollars in money and
a valuable gold ring, and emptied the
contents of the cupboard over the floor.
In the last named residence the inmates
happily awoke immediately after the
depredators entered, and of course made
after the rogues, who were obliged to de
, part without any booty. Ditneannon
1 Bound to Close Out. Mr. O. S. Mills,
of Centre, Laving sold his real estate is
now selling off his stock of goods at
cost to close his business.
v Hotel Changes. There is great change
'to take place in the hotels In this
borough. The Perry House is now kept
. by Sheriff Williamson; the lease of the
Mansion House and the fixtures have
been sold to Mr. George F. Ensminger,
formerly a merchant at Shermansdale,
and the Eagle Hotel has been purchased
by Henry L. Hochenshilt, Esq., of
Madison township. The two latter
hotels are not to come into possession of
the new landlords till March.
A Lottery Fraud. Some set of scamps
are issuing circulars, stating that they
are a committee to distribute unclaimed
lottery prizes. They send us one of these
circulars, stating that our interest as
shown in one of these lotteries id $14. As
we never had an interest in a lottery
(and never expect to have) we knowr
they are lying.
We can therefore set down Russell &
Co. as frauds, and E. D. Fish, Secretary,
as one of their aids and abettors. Let
no one for a moment suppose they can
make any money by Investing in any
Murphy Meetings In Bloomfield. Mr. Ab
britt, who conducted the Murphy meet
ing in Newport so successfully, is ex
pected to be present Dec., 81st, to con
di ct a meeting here.
The laborers in this good work ask no
coVnpensatlon beyond fare (from Mifflin)
and hospitality while here. ; Any collec
tion taken' at close of entire services id
for warded to head quarters at Pittsburgh.
Thtase desirous of such a work here will
please meet In basement of Methodist
church next Saturday at 7 P.M., es
pecially representatives from each
church. The church buildings will have
to be used in turn as Court House will
be in process of cleansing and afterwards
be used by Court.
Almost an Accident. A party composed
of Rev. Leas and wife, Henry Foulk,
Esq., and Reuben Wallace met with an
exciting adventure while on their way
to church on Wednesday evening last.
In going down a long hill the wagon
pole got detatched from the axle, but
Mr. Wallace managed to keep his horses
under control until they reached the
foot of the hill, when they were stopped
without any further damage being done.
The party however had to walk home.
A Narrow Escape. A short time since
the stace running from Landlsburg to
Carlisle made a narrow escape while
near Gibson's Rock. The driver chanced
to get too close to the edge of the preci
pice, and the stage and horses were pre
cipitated down the steep descent, but
fortunately lodged against some trees and
bushes. One passenger was somewhat
hurt, but no one seriously Injured. The
horses escaped with slight bruises, but
the stage was badly broken. On the
night of the accident it was unusually
Painfully Afflicted. The many friends
of Rev. A II. Aughe.of Boiling Springs,
Ta., formerly pastor of the Lutheran
church of this place, will regret to learn
that the reverend gentleman was alarm
ingly stricken with rheumatism of the
bowels, on Monday. We are pleased to
announce his improvement and the
physician's hopes of ultimate recovery.
By his sudden Illness, the intended
marriage of his daughter, Ida, which
was to have taken place the following
Tuesday, was postponed until Tuesday
of next week. Xewport Keivs,
Found Dead. Mrs. Catherine Schriber
residing in Rye township, was found
dead in bed on Friday morning a week.
She had not been well for quite a while,
but was supposed to be recovering. An
inquist was held but we did not learn the
report made by the jury. The deeeaswd
was an esteemed christian lady, aged
about CO years.
Explosions. Ou Sunday night last,
a coal oil lamp exploded at the residence
of Mr. G. W. Nitterhouse. The lamp
was on the table, near to which Miss
Nitterhouse was standing. Her large
apron which she wore and a handker
chief were burned which was the only
On Broad street, while the family of
Mr. Jones were scaled at the supper
table, the coal oil lamp suddenly explod

Court ProcccdinQ8. Saturday morning,
22nd inst., the Court bell rang at 10
o'clock A. M. The following proceed
ings were had, to wit:
An order was read by tlio Court, fixing
Tuesday, the lUlh day of March, 1878, the lltli
of June, 10th of September and 10th of De
cember, 1878, as days upon which adjourned
court of Common fleas, Quarter Sessions, aud
Orphans' Court should be held, and that all
Administration aud Trustee Accounts should
be advertised aud presented for continuation at
Orders of tale of real estate were granted to
Jos. Smith, Assignee of Wm. McCoy, to soil
a house and lot la Peon twp., near to Dun
cannon. To Henry Lepperd, Committee of Blaln,
Stewart, a lunatic, to sell 11 acres of land with
improvements In Wheat Held twp.
The sale by Wm. T. Flckes, Administrator
of Lydia Shatto of a house and lot in Mew
port to J. W. Shatto was confirmed.
The first case argued was that of Catharine
Bhuman vs. Elizabeth Cnutt'inun and David
Caullinan. This was a rule to show cause
why an execution issued upon a judgment
against the defendants should not be set aside
as to Elizabeth Caullinan who Is a married
woman. The defendants were cued before
Esq. Leas, of Greenwood twp., upon a note
and did not appeal from the judgment given
by the Justice against them. A trauscrlpt was
eutered in the Court of Common Fleas and a
fifia. Issued thereon upon which Mrs. Caufl
ii a u made application to have the judgments
Bet aside as a nullity so fur as she was con
cerned. The Court decided that, like the
foolish virgin who did not get oil in time for
her lamp and failed to enter in, so because ehe
failed to till her lamp with the oil of dofenee
provided by the law in due time, that the doors
were closed and she could not come in ut this
late day. The rule was discharged by tlio
Jacob Klnert, rift. In error, V3 William Gibbons
Pelt, in error was a Certorarl to 'Squire Fenn.
The case grew out of a prosecution under the Act
of 1821 for damages done by the entile of Klnerc
to the buckwheat and corn of Gibbons. The evi
dence showed that the fences were bad. the cattle
mischievous, the parties themselves belligerent
and spoiling for a muss, and the Justice, upon
consideration gave Gibbons one dollar damages.
Ilia Honor, Judge Junkin. being a skllllul agri
culturist, as well as a learned Jurist, necessarily
had to call all his abilities into play, for the ques
tion of buckwheat and eorn hud to tie craupled
with as well as ancient Acts of Assembly. His
Honor reseived the decision of the case and will

On Wednesday evening a tarty of
colored folks passed up Hanover street
singing, which raised an alarm of fire,to
which the department promptly re

house, Alex. Comfort, who was acting
as steersman was thrown from his post
violently, but was not hurt: a boy was
also run over, but was not hurt. Both
truck and carriage then came down
l'omfret and up Hanover, the truck in
the lead. The hose company stopped at
me engine house, winch convinced the
" hlvers" that It was a false alarm, and
they turned to go home : the hose lad

the railroad, and away they went for
JMaln street, colliding with the truck
company as the latter was turning in
front of the Franklin House, and sev

none were hurt much.

With most of Its contents, was totally
consumed. The neighbors succeeded in
rescuing all of Mr. V burton's horses
six in number and Mrs. Stewart Whar
ton got all the milk cows out but one.
Mr. Wharton's loss Is estimated at about
$3,000 with a small amouut of insurance.
Peter Koons, of Fayette township,
this county, aged 70 odd years, recently
chopped down a chestnut tree that
measured forty-five inches across the
stump, gathered about three pecks of
chestnuts from it, and carried then on
his back to the store about one mile
distant. Returning to his work, he
cross-cutted the tree ofF some seven or
eight times and split forty-seven posts
out of it, all himself. And what is
more than most men can say, he has
never been in a railroad car; he has never
been a juror; has never had a suit in
