I The average capacity of the miues is 2,600
tons per day. The number of miners employ
ed 573. The amount of coal mined and seut
to market in 1806 was 280.93(5 tons being
| 36.521 tons in excess of the production of
1867. li e rejoice with our Broad-top lriends
in this evidence of their increasing prosperity,
; and hope they may soon be enabled to* work
I the mines to their lull capacity. We under
stand that the business has been restricted for
some time by reason of insufficient transpor

present is about SOO.OOO tons per year or
about three times the yield of the past year.

'■BRING BACK THAT HAM'' — Petty Thi-.it
ituj appears to be the order of the day in
Bedford this winter, even down in MudTrwn
several long Singered Gents who are pretty
well known have been figuring rather strong
on Woodpiles. Coal-houses and smoke-houi.es.
On Tuesday morning last a ham was found
in the alley leading east from Bedford St. It is
about time that an example be made of some
of these parties. Our citizens have been too
lenient in this line; it they would have this
prowling about at all hours of the night
through stables smoke-houses and the like
stopped and their property protected from
fire and thieves let them act the part of good
citizens and inform on the first rogue they
catch in the act of stealing. A little watch
ing is all that is necessary.
TERRIBLE ACCWENT.— OQ Thursday last a
terrible accident occurred at thestore of John
Kaffensberger. iu Washington township in
this County. Peter Good ling, a son of Jacob
Goodling, who was returning from a gunning
expedition and stopping at the store, met with
an aeiinaintance by the name of Cornelius
Ciepper. Something was said by Goodling.
about selling ortradiug Ciepper hisgun, when
the two, in a friendly way, commenced tuss
ling with the weapon, which was heavily
loaded. W bile thus engaged, it accidentally
went off, the whole charge lodging in Good
ling's stomach, indicting a fearful wound, and
causing a laceration and protrusion of the
bowels. Medical aid was immediately called
in, but of no avail, as the injured man died
about six hours afterwards.— York True
MAIL ROBBERY. —On Friday evening last,
sutne adroit mail robber succeeded in pur
loiriing the through pouch from Philadelphia
to Holiidaysburg, from the baggage car of the
Branch Train, while the baggage master was
attending to his work of leceiving baggage.
In removing the through pouch, the Duncans
ville pouch was drawn from the car and fell
upon the track. This was run over and cut
open by the wheels of the cars, and was
afterwards found beside the track, with the
mail matter uninjured. The stolen pouch
was taken into a freight car, near the weigh
scales, where it was cut open and the letters
taken out and carried away. Mr. Patton tele'
graphed to Philadelphia, and received an
answer to the effect that there was not over
ren letters in the pouch. This being the case
ihe robber did not get much for his trouble.
DEATRCCTIVE FIRE AT At. TOOK A—Pennsyl
vania Railroad Company Car Shops Runted
—Lass 8300,000. —A disastrous fire occurred
at Altoona about eleven o'clock on Thursday
night the 21st inst by which the freight car
shops of the Pennsylvania Railroad company
were destroyed. The building was a frame
-trueture about two hundred feel in length,
fifty feet deep and two stories high, and was
used exclusively for the manufacture ot
freight carß. The fires had beeu slacked
nb,mt seven o'clock iu the evening after the
workmen left the shop and it is not known
positively how or where the fire originated.
V\ ben first discovered the flames were burst
ing out through the roof and windows, and
although the firemen and citizens, a large
number of whom were present, worked nobly
they were unable to combat with the mad
fury of the devouring elemeut, and it swept
everything before it. The entire building,
including ail the machinery in it and twenty
four new freight cars were burned to ashes.
A carload of laid and bacon, and one loaded
with produce, which were standing on a sid
ing near the burning building, and about
thirty thousand dollars worth of lumber in
the rear of the shop were also consumed.
The entire loss by the fire is estimated at
three hundred thousand dollars. There were
between four and live hundred men employed
in connection with the shop, many of whom
will doubtless be thrown out of employment
for a short time at least. It was one of the
most disastrous fires that has ever occurred
in that place.

ANDY JOHNSON. The eagle which sailed
over a Republican delegation from St. Ciairs

portentous to the Democracy about thattim e
was captured some time ago by a man in Ful
ton County ana has since tallen into the hands
of our friend ol the Express Office. Since
his arrival here he has been christened Andy

him, for notwithstanding his good treatment
at the hands of the curious democrats, fresh
meat has no charms for him, aud plump
young chickens walk through his coop aud
roost on his back with impunity, bis eyes are
dull and heavy, probably going blind, and his

V INTER RULES.—Never go to bed with cold
or damp feet. In going into a colder air,
keep the mouth resolutely closed, that by
compelling the air to pass circititously through
the nose and head, it may become warmed
before it reaches the lungs, and thus prevent
those shocks and sudden chills which fre
quently end in pleurisy, pneumonia, and
other serious forms of disease. Never sleep
with the head in the draft of an open door or
window. Let more covering be on the lower
liuibsthan on the body'. Have an extra cov
ering within easy reach in case of a sudden
and great change of weather during the night..
Never stand still a moment out of doors es
pecially at street corners, after having walked
even a short distance. Never ride near an
open window of a vehicle tor a single half
minute, especially if it has been preceded by
a walk: valuable lives have been lost or good
health permanently destroyed in this way.
Never put on anew boot or shoe in the be
ginning of a walk.— l'uik True Democrat.
LAMENTABLE AND FATAL ACCIDENT.—The
Fulton Democrat says that a most distressing
and fatal accident occurred in Licking Creek
township, last week. Mr. Franklin Sipes,
son of Am s Sines, went into the woods, on
Tuesday, (the sth in-t.,) to cut saw logs. He
had felled a tree which lodged on another
tree, near by. Whilst endeavoring to dis
engage the partially (alien tree, it lurched
away from the lodgement and striking Mr.
Sipes in the face, prostrating him to the
ground, falling across both of hi- legs. As
m ; ght be supposed, very serious injuries were
the result. Besides other severe contusions
and serious wounds, the bones of both legs
below the knees suffered dangerous com
minuted fractures. The surgieal aid of Dr.
11. S. Wishart, of HarrisOnville, was called
in, as speedily as possible, and the wounds
most skillfully dressed and cared for: but the
unfortunate man had been wounded past the
help of surgery, and on Friday he died.
ARSCONDIKO POSTMASTER. —On Thursday
morning last, Andrew Dalryrnple, Postmaster
at Brown's Mills, this county, left for pans
ut,known. Before leaving he gave a letter to
be deliveted to a gentleman who was on bis
bond for the faithful Derfortnance of his
duties. He hud told his wife on the morning
of his departure that he was going to Cham
bersburg, and would return in the evening.
Evening catne, and night too, but no Andrew.
His bondsman in the meantime had read the
letter, and learned from its contents that he
tvas in for about SSOO. The defaulter stated
that he was sorry he liad to leave, sorry that
there was such a deficiency in his accounts,
but told his friend that he did not see any re
lief except in his paying tbe money. He was
very thankful he had signed hishoud.as well
as for the many kindnesses he bad received at
his hands. Tbe whole transaction is about
tbe coolest piece of rascality we have heard
of for some time. Dalryrnple has not yet
been heard cf. — Franklin Repository.

T Bit American Year-Book for 1869 is the
title of the initial volume of a proposed an
nual publication by O. D. CASE A Co., of
Hartford, who have sent us a portion of its
pages in advance. Since the '"American
Almanac "Was discontinued in 18'ift, and the
two years of the "National Almanac" in '63
and "6.4, the broad field of information thus to
be annually harvested has been entirely un
occupied. These publishers enter upon it
now, appreciating the public needs, under
standing the perils of the work, and confident
of their ability to supply successfully and
permanently, a year book and register which
ghali be indispensable forthe intelligent pub
lie The sheets before us fully sustain their
promise to give to their work a broader and
more valuable range than was covered bv
either of the annuals above spoken of. As a
compendium of astronomical, historical,
religious, political, financial and con'mercial
information, as well relative to our National
and State governments as to foreign countries,
aud carefully edited by competent writers,
the completed volume of 80ft pages will
satisfy so nearly all the current requirements
of public men or private citizens, as to com
mand for the enterprise n well-merited suc
cess. It is to be issued in February, and
travelling agents will soon place copies
within every man's reach.
To ORR PATROSS. —We have a large amount
of money charged upon our books, but we
find the money in our pocKet very scarce. Our
friends have always responded liberally to
our call and we trust that they will do so
again. We have been building during the
past season, and our carpenters,
lumbermen, painters, in short every one we
employ wants money. In fact money is the
very thing we want ourselves. Now all we
ask is that every one who owes us, however
small the sum, will promptly pay us. Every
dollar we get will pay two dollars of debts.
We only want those who owe us to pay, in
order that we may pay our debts; and we are
quite sure that all this class will cheerfully
aid us in so laudable an enterprise. Every
one can tell the exact amount be owes us lor
subscriptions by examining the label that he
finds each week on his paper. Geo. Giles
Apl. 1 08 indicates that Mr. Giles has not
paid in advance tor his paper but has been
going it on tick. Now if he knows how to
save money he will hurry up and pay us $2.50
before Apl. 1. 09 for atter that time it will be
$3.00; if he had paid for it nine months ago it
would have only been $2.00 and he would
have saved OOcts. In the came way each one
can determine how much he owes, always re
membering that it is economy to pay in ad
vance. All who owe us for advertising if
they have not received bills, can ascertain the
amount by culling at onr office, where we will
' at all times be pleased to see them, and to
! receive and receipt "for all the little bills due
as. Come along quick. W< want money
badly or we would not ask for it. t. f.
