At Centralis, last night, a notice was posted at Mr. Provost's colliery that no man or boy should work except tho engineers und firemen. Thu night men in charge of the pumps, while repairing them, were frightened away by being fired, and, fearing trouble, pumps, it being unsafe to continue work upon them longer. Great damage must follow to the mines iu that vicinity, by being flooded with water, if the men are prevented from operating the pumps regularly. Mutinous Miners—A Ifuscally Act. Pottsville, Pa., April 2.—Tlie riotous feeling among the miners and laborers is increasing. During a riot at Ashland only a few shots were fired, and no dam age wan done. A dastardly attempt was made to wreck tho evening train from Philadelphia, two miles below Pottsville. A large stone rolled down the mountain side and struck the rear cur, damaging it, but not wrecking the train. When the train reached Mount Carbon the by standers asked the conductor how ho got through and if tho train had not been stopped, show ing that the stone wa-s not dislodged accidentally. Tho outrage was doubtless the work of the men recently discharged. The Philadelphia and Read ing Company's miners at Schuylkill Ha ven have resumed work. a shot left tho accumulation of Tin* lifiteMt Idiotic Murder.
