'Dear Freeman -In your last issue I noted
the arrest of an alleged horse thief by Major
Ryckman, and ' although : circumstances
seemed to indicate that the young man had
came by the horse surreptitiously,' his reti
cence in regard to his name, or anything
pertaining to hhnself, and no possible clue
fixing his identity in the supposed stealing
of the animal being obtainable, it was deter
mined, on Monday last, to discharge him,
but when just about permitting him to tat
his departure a constable from Canonsburg,
Pa., made his appearance, and atonceiden
tified him as a young" fellow named Rode
baugh, who, it was supposed, had stolen the
horse, and recognized the animal as the
property of a citizen of that locality. J After
satisfying the Burgess that he was all that
he represented himself to be, he was per
mitted to take tne prisoner witn mm, to be
lodged in jail at the above place until he
could be tried. The prisoner was "hobbled,"
but at Home wood Station, near Pittsburgh,
he succeeded in making his escape through
a car window, just as the train was starting,
and the strange part of the story is, that al
though the constable jumped of? and caught
him, he alleges the boy's grip was stronger
than bis, and so he escaped. There is some
thing peculiar in the idea of a hobbled boy
escaping from a stout, active man, and I
could not help remarking the singularity of
the affair at the time the constable was nar
rating it. ;To my mind it seems clear that the
supposed officer was a confederate, and after
permitting ni3 prisoner to escape ne returned
to get the horse. " The police had, however,
"smeiled the mice," and refused to deliver
up the animal until the owner would make
his appearance. . .. . , - ,T

' The crops of wheat, rye and grass are said
never to have looked better in tLia county
at this time of the year. Fruit is likely to
be a very slim crop here especially apples
and pears. It was killed in the blossom by
the cold rains. -1 was in some instances as
tonished at the highly cultivated appearance
of many of the farms, especially in the neigh
borhood of towns, and particularly in the vi
cinity of Latrobe and New Detry. You may
be surprised when I . tell you that some of
these farmers have a greater and more taste
fully selected variety of ornamental trees and
shrubbery than there are at Cresson, not to
speak of the extensive and various orchards
otruit trees." Portable steam saw mills are
rapidly converting the larger growth of the
remaining natural grove of timber into fenc
ing boards and other lumber, and fences well
built of locust posts and white oak boards,
are rapidly shoving the old rail back out of
view from the more public thoroughfares.
' Blackberries don't appear to be of suffi
cient .value to induce the farmers in this
county to give them room to grow; even in
the fence corners, and you may ride many
miles in different direeti6ns without seeing a
handful of anything in the briar or weed line..1
But I must not forget to notice the general
neatness, taste and substantiality cf the build-1
ings. Indeed, some of these farmers resi
dences approach a palace-like appearance.'
Uf course there will be too much of this
for your spare space, but I cannot close un-
tild have told you that I saw and took the
dimensions of the log house built on the north
side of , the Loyalhanna creek by Maj. Coch
ran, who accompanied Gen." Forbes on his
expeditions agairibt the Indians in' 1758, X
believe, and whose descendants (the Coch-
rans still reside in that neighborhood. This

culiar interest for the- antiquarian. - It is
built of white oak logs, slightly hewn, and is

Accident A. boy 15 or 16 years, old, son j
of Mr. Sra. George, of this townthip,. en-
gaged as driver at Dysart & Co's coal bank,'
met with a severe accident on Tuesday last.
The mule which he drove being at large, the
bey ? endeavored to catch him,"" when the
vicious animal, wheeling, kicked him in tha
face, literally splitting his nose lengthwise,
from the point nearly up to his eye, cutting
it clean to the bone, as well as inflicting a
cut about an inch and a half ia length on
his upper lip. Dr. Walter Bell was imme
diately snmmoiied, and having dressed the
wounds, the bey was sent home in a buggy
by Mr. Dysart. . ' I must not omit to men
tion in this connection the generous conduct
cf Mr. D., who, happening to arrive just
after the accident, manifested a father's
sympathy for the boy, telling the doctor to
do everything necessary for the poor boy,
and he would "see it right." Mr. Dysart
has a heart of flesh in his breast, and not a
petrified one, as are those of some who are,
or have lately been, engaged in the coal trada
at 'this point.' : ; " ' .' " ; . J
