Mifflin county went against license
two weeks ago, notwithstanding which
the landlords over there ere petition
ing court for license as heretofore,
and tbe applicants are advertised in
the Lewistown papers, to be up at
April term. This course ha* been
taken by the Mifflin county landlords
on account of a letter, said to have
been written by Senator Petriken, in
which he gives the assurance that the
local option act would he repealed
this session yet, on account of the
vote et the reeent elections having
shown a large majority in the state
in favor of license. Should the act
be repealed, then the Mifflin county
landlords would be in good time to
oarry their point at next court, hav
ing filed their applications and adver
tised same according to the require
ments of the late licence law.
As was announced in last week's
Riqportkr, the local option elections,
held two weeks ago, in a majority of
of the counties, went overwhelming
ly in favor of licensee, just the oppo
site of the countiee which held their
elections one or two months earlier
The vote all through was a light ooe,
but the total now, in the entire state,
•hows a large majority for license.
After s greet deal of debate and
considerable uncertainty tbe Centen
nial Appropriatioa bill be* at length
passed through both branches of the
Legislature. It has bean amended so
as secure $1,000,000 for the event, in
stead of $500,000 a* was set forth in
the bill The greater portion of thi*
amonat is to be collect-id from the
passenger rail roads of Philadel
phia in the shape of three per cent,
tax npon their gross receipts. It ma;
be that this source of revenue will be
sufficient to cover the entire million,
but should it not there ie yet a provi
sion in the bill that the State Treas
ury can be drawn upon, at tbe most,
for only $250,000.
Our member, Mt. Orvis, wa# the
champion, in the House, of the provi
so that the greater portion of this cen
tennial appropriation shall be collect
ed from tbe Philadelphia passenger
railroad#, which lines will reap fortunes
during the centennial. By this pro
vision there secured to tbe
State Treasury several hundred thou
sand dollars, which would have been
filched from it but for the lead Mr. Or
via took in the matter. He is entitled
to the thanks of every tax-payer in
tbe Bute.
Patterson s Case Settled.
Senator Patterson's case —one of
the Credit Mobilieritee —ie disposed of,
as per Washington advices of 26th
uih, as follows:
The case of ex-Senator Patterson, of
New Hampshire, was very briefly dis
posed of to-day by an agreement of
the Senate to permit hie pamphlet re
plying to the Committee who repor
ted at the last session for his expul
sion to be printed with their report
Tbe defence was not read to the Sen
ale, but waa delivered to Senators by
Mr. Patterson himself, who seemed to
feel even more keenly than did Colfax
the disgrace which has overtaken him.
He left the capital to-day quite a
wreck of his former self, and proposes
to sail for Europe, where he will re
main a year.
The following excellent provision
has passed the Constitutional Conven
tion :
"Section 26. No act of Assembly
shall limit tb amount to be recovered
for injuries to person or property and
in case of death frcm such injuries the
right of action shall survive and the
Legislature shall prescribe for whose
bendit such actions shall be prosecu
ted ; and no act shall prescribe any
limitation of time within which suits
may bo brought against corporations
far injuries to person or property or
for other causes, different from that
fixed by the general laws prescribing
tha time for the limitation of actions ;
and existing laws so prescribing are
annuled and avoided.'
It is reported tbst the Presideut is
suffering from a cold contracted on
inauguration dsj. We never learned
that he suffered from his gold contract
ed in Seneca sandstone.
Two colored members of the Ala*
bama legislature, bad a fight the oth

The next ticket of the rada should
have Colfax for Premdcat with Ames
for Vice, which would be putting
those fellowa where tbey "would do
moat good."

one aide ia stamped a picture of

our recollection the fat promises of
1840 —32 yean ago—when all were to
bare "two dollars a day and good
roast beef," if Gen. Harrison waa
elected. Those allurring promises
found a good many dupes, and "Tip

but the two dollan a day didn't make
their appearance, and the good roast
beef eon tinned under the hides of the

tent himself with his neeastomed fare,
thile the roast beef waa only within
the reach of the rich. The common,

BANK OF Enui.AND—THK PI. AN*
PKVWKU AND EsutNKKHI l> BY VN
Amkrk-an.
New York, March 17.—London
paper* of lite 3d and -Bit are at hand,
with the followiug detail* of the great
forget ice on the Bank of Kngland:
It wa* discovered on Saturday that
hill* to an enormous amount had been
fotpnl upon all the principal house#
in the city of lauhlou, and that these
bill* bad been discounted at the West
ern! branch of the Hank of Kngland,
iu Burlington Qardent, which doc* an
entirely different kind of busine**
from the parent establishment in the
city. It i iuiended for the conveni
ence of gentlemen and ladies and
West-end tradesmen, who might find
it inconvenient to journey to the city
iu order to transact their occasional
business. It ia not, therefore, ordi
narily concerned with laige bill tram*
actions of city commerce, aud iu con
sequence is lea* bound by strict regu
lations in dealing with any business of
that nature which might accidentally
be brought to it. The conspirator#
must have been aware of this, and
they laid their plans for approachiug
the Bank of England by thi* weaker
portion of its defense*. Warren, an
American, who managed the plot,
was in no hurry and took care to
gain good before he veutured
on hi* ultimate enterprise. i/e
behaved iust like an ordi
nary customer of good resources. He
diew upon his balance and reuewed
it, bat kept it always a good figure
After a while he deposited some bills.
They were good and genuine bill#.
Still ho was careful not to be hasty,
and be continued his transactions with
tbe bauk until be had acquired the
reputation of a person engagedjiu le
gitimate commerce and thoroughly
trustworthy. At length the moment
came for tbe preeentation of forged
bi.'l*. They were discounted without
hesitation, and the author* of the fraud
had to ail appearance succeeded in
safely pocketing about one hundred
thousand pounds. All these arrange
ments were master-pieces of ingenuity
and patience, but the bills themselves
must have given the greatest amount
of labor. In the first place many of
the large firms upon wbora the bills
purported to be drawn are in the hab
it of using a peculiar kind of paper
with certain water-marks and piinted
matter. All this would have to be
imitated, and, as the bills were drawu
on more than one firm, there must
have been several such imitations.
There then remained the drawing of
the bills and affixing the signatures,
and each bill must have required a
series of feats in successful forging.
Some bills were backed by several ac
ceptors, so that there might easily be
as mauv as half a dozen signatures on
a single bill. Yet the bills were so
perfect that not one of them was ques
tioned on the ground of tbe accep
tances not appearing genuine. But
the men who had exerted a skill, fore
sight and perseverance sufficient to iu
sure |the unhesitating acceptance of
tbe forged bills could uoi escape one
trivial blunder which revealed tbe
plot. They presented two bills in
which the date of acceptance had been
omitted. Inquiry was of course made
of the firm whose acceptance was thus
undated, and it was discovered that
the bills were not genuine, and the
whole series was then found to be for
geries. How much further the plot
might have been carried it is impossi
ble to say. Advertisements published
caution bankers, brokers and all oth
er persons against dealing in a num
ber af United States five-twenty, ten
forty and funded loan bonds, amount
ing in tbe aggregate to 1237,000,
they, it ia alleged, having been acquir
ed eut of the profits of the forgery.
Tbe loss to the Bank of England is
stated at eighty thousand pounds.
The Rothcbilds are mentioned as one
of tbe firms on which forged drafts
were drawn, but no other names are
given.
A HEARTLESS MURDER.
A Saloon Keeper Kick* a Customer
out and then Shoots Him.
Dubuque, lowa, March 25.—The
village of Monona, lowa, was on Sat
urday night, the scene of a most heart
less murder. Ooe Biagbun, a notori
ous character, keeper of a saloon, en
ticed Lyman Ingalls, a young man of
quiet, unassuming manners, into his
saloon, and after getting him drunk
kicked him out of doors. Ingalls at
tempted to re enter, and finding the
door locked, began pounding and
and kicking for admission, which
proving of no use, he went round to
the back door, when Biagbun, now
enraged at having bis rest broken,
rose and seized a shot-gun, muttering
"I'll stop your noise," and going up to
Ingalls fired, the charge entering the
heart and coming out at the neck, kill
ing him instantly. Much excitement
prevailed and threats of lynching
were made, but the authorities suc
ceeded in getting him lodged in jail.
Ingalls was burried, an immense
crowd following his remain to
the grave.
The primitive mode of counting and
weighing Dails has left some remind
ers of itself in our modern nomencla
ture. We say four penny, six-penny,
ten-penny nails, and so on. Nails used
to be counted by the 1,000 ; and
when tbey were of such a size that
1,000 of them weighed four pounds,
tbey were called four pound nails,
and similarly six-pound and ten pound
nails, and in rapid speaking the
"pound" became corrupted.to "penny"'
which is more easily uttered by the
organs, as any one will see who will
try it for himself. Thus the current
designation of sizes depended original
ly upon weights.
MISSISSIPPI HURRICANE.
Canton, Miss., March 29. A hurricane
swept through this city last night destroy
ing many houses and it is reported killing
several people. Two loaded cars were
lifted from the railroad track and one of
them was badly wrecked. The track ef
the hurricane is about one hundred yards
wide. Fifty houses were destroyed. Loss
SICO,OOO. Only ene iife was lost, a negro
woman, and about five persons were in
jured, none seriously.

Itontl Robbery In Hro:ul SI reel
Ifow 7W Young .\ftit Iltnmt /W#•*.#•
eti of $1 (>B,OOO H orfA of Hand*.
The bold hinl robbery perpetrated
in Wall #troct on Beturday continue*
to be a topic of in to real and .-pecula
tion. A Sun reporter yesterday call
d upon Col. S. t\ ilohutuu, I'ri-oitlcnt
of tne Pennsylvania We#tern Rail
road, in hi* otHee, 60 Broad trcct.
Col. Johuaou #ail that last Saturday
morning, about 11 o'clock, Mr. Kooae
veil, an officer of the Company, with
another official, went to the Safe I>e
[H*it Company in Broadway to get
aoinc bouds of the railroad. Mr.
Kooaevelt carried the bumU and hi*
companion* walked by hi* ide. In
Broadway, uear Wall *tieet, two men
joalled Mr. UooacvcU, who a*kcd hi#
companions to walk a few feet ahead
of htiu until they reached the office.
Mr. Kooncvell #aid he wa# afraid that
autnebody would throw pepper iu hia
eye* aud rob him. Reaching the of
fice, Mr, Kooaevelt wa* left alone with
the bond*, whose nominal value wa*
$168,000.
Col. Johtisau occupies two office* n
the ground floor. The front one faces
the street. Iu the rear of thi# office
there is a high desk, running across
the rootu. The back office i# directly
i behind the desk, aud is also accessible
frotu the main hall by a door, which
is always locked. A few uiomeuts af
ter Mr. Kooaevelt had placed the
bonds at oue end of the high desk two
well-dressed young tuen entered the
office, aud after makiug the usual in
quiries about the road, one of them,
who is described as a short man with
a sandy complexion, asked permission
to write a note, which was granted.
His companion asked to be allowed to
go into the back room and adjust his
dress. At this juncture Mr. Kooae
velt grew cautious, and goiug to the
desk he stood with his elbow on the
bouds, and did not turn his back to
ward the man in the rear office for an
instant. The young mau in the front
office finished his letter, aud both men
politely bowed themselves out.
After their departure Mr. Kooaevelt
took the bonds to the other end of the
desk and threw a soiled towel, an old
shawl, aud several other articles over
them, and sat down at another desk
near the window to write. About an
hour later Col. Jobnaon entered aud
theu the bonds were inissed. When
Col. Johnson stepped from the office
before tbe bonds were stolen he locked
the door of the rear office leading to
tbe hall on the inside. It is thought
that confederate No. 2 went into the
rear room to ascertaiu whether any
body was there, and that he subse
quently picked the lock from the out
side. The thieves must have done
their work very quietly to pick the
lock of the back office while the key
was in it, open the door, and then go
into the front office where Mr. Roose
velt was sitting, remove the towel,
shawl, aud other articles from the
bonds, and depart without disturbing
Mr. Roosevelt.
The bouds were numbered from ">7
to 238, and will be valueless to the
thieves, as they had uot been put on
the market. Col. Johnson said that
he had intended to send llieiu to Eu
rope to-day. Tne detectives are at
work, and Mr. Roosevelt said that the
company knows more concerning the
thieves thau it desires to give to tbe
public.

Natural Ability.
We invite our yonng workers of educa
tion, to reflect on a subject, that cause*
many a young mind to retire in detpair.
They are burdened with the idea that
their companion* have more natural ability
than they have. Indeed, the minds of
Philosopher* are termented by thi* very
thought. If the mind created with the
genu of knowledge within it, or ha* >t on
ly the |>ower to acquire it * Confessing
that eminent men uphold the doctrine of
innate idea, we have sufficient evidence
that it i* more philosophical to believe that
tbe element* of our first knowledge are ac
quired. We believe the mind to be a pure
spirit, an intellectual being, without
any idea* comparing it to a white
sheet of paper, ready to write any
kind of knowledge on. Likewie will
there be written on, if not good, why then
bad, for the huuiau mind i* provided with
ample power for improvement, and the
only way to acquire knowledge i* by men
tal activity; would it be rational to suppose
that God would create one man wi*e and
the other ignorant? ' So ; we all have that
blank sheet of paper given to u a* a her
itage, and ho who improve* the gift, reaps
the reward in abundance. lie who ne
glect*, reap- it in sorrow. It i* sad to
think that many parent* who are now laid I
low in the earth, have deprived their chil
dren from improving that heritago
which God ha* given thorn; we!
should ever remember that we have
the whole world before u, and that there
i* always room for new inventions; also
that our mind* aro a# susceptible to make
theiu a* the mind* of others. It it an en
couraging thought to know that out mind*
ttand on a level with thone of our fellow
men at the time of creation. Rut we muft
not forget that the human intellect grow*
only by it* own inherent energies; theo
men who have bright intellect* made them
se by mental aclixity. ll<- who desire* to
become a tcholar, must make improve
ment, and the only way to do *o ji by hard
work, and time will soon tell that natural
tmartness it an absurdity. Val.

sending him to the post house. He said
that he knew he had to die to-day. and
h
would not die with a lie on his lips; that his
statement was true, and he woul i reas

tempted to reproduce.
In lhilt<otcured in Pennsylvania what is
popularly know n as the "Uuckshut war." j
Innocuous, altuest ridiculous, as it turned
out to be, It threatened at one time to as
sume alarming proportions, lis stoiy Is
one of the s|adls of time of which the pages
of Mr. Thaddeus Steven's llle then, as
ever, artificer of evil—were very rich. In
the autumn of that ) ear be and bis oonfed
efttes organised a plan by whkh through
false or rather mutilated returns, a major
ity of the lower branch of the Legislature
should be secured to the tottering minori
ty aduiiui*lratioii of Mr. It liner. The
game, though played boldly, was encoun
tered by a spirit on the part or the De- i
mocrucy quite a* bold. The Senate
Chamber was intaded by violence, and.
lb# obnoxious conspirators—Thaddeus I
leading the way—lumped out of the back
wiudow. and escaped. In the House ef
Representatives, where the relative
strength of parties was neaaly equalised a
differ.-nt result occurred. Two Speakers
were elected and two houses were orgab
ixod, each claiming, with threats of vio
lence, to be the legal one. Crowds of ex- {
cited men filled the ordinarily quiet streets
of Harrisburg. Something very like'
"demotic violeuce" existed. The Gov
ernor was the only official whoee author-,
ity was unquestioned. Then it was that
hi* advisor* took it into their heads to
solicit Federal interposition, first by ask
ing a captain of cavalry, stationed not far
off, to interpose, and then by an appeal to
Wuhingtoii. We ask the thoughtful
reader, byway ol contrast, to note the
process and the result. The Federal sol
dier wa* the late General, then Captain,
.Sumner, stationed at Carlisle Barracks,
j some fifteen miles off. Tho President was
1 Mr. Van Bureii, with Mr. Forsyth Secrv

Attorney-General. Governor Kiincr on
the 4th of December wrote to Captain
Sumner:
"An insurrection havtug broken out at

W *l DEPARTMENT, Dec. 11. 183A
Sir : The letter addrc*ted by your Kx
cellency to the President of the United
States under the date of the 27ih instant
wa* received yesterday and referred to
this Department, where it ha* received
that respectful and earnest consideration
to which the high source whence it ema
nate* and importance of the subject enti
tled it.
In this communication your Excellency
iaiornts the President that such a state of
domestic violence exist* at llarrisburg a*
to put an end, for tho present, to all the
exercise* of the regular function* of the
State Government, and randers it your du
ty to request the Provident, in accordance
with the fourth section of the fourth arti
cle of the Constitution of the United State*
to lake measure* to protect the State of
Pennsylvania against the effects of the do-,
meatic violence which
fitms to be than in existence.
The clause of the Constitution te which
your Excellency refers, and the act passed
in pursuance thereof, authorises the Presi
dent to call out the militia ouly on the ap
plication of tho legislature of a State, or ofi
the Executive of a State when tho Legis-i
iaturc cannot bo convened. The nature of
the President's duty being, therefore, dis
cretionary, it it incumbent on hitn to exer.
cite the utmost care in examining into all
the circumstance* of the case, as well as to;
determine whether the occasion contem
plated by tho law has occurred.
The commotion which now threaten* the
peace of the commonwealth of Pennsylva
nia doe* not appear to rise from any oppo
sition to the lews, but grows out of a pell
tical contest between different member* of
the Government, ramt if not all of them ad
mitted to be the legal representative of the
people constitutionally elected, about their
relative right*, and especially In referenoe
to tho organisation of the popular branch
o( the legislature. To interfere in any
commotion growing out of a controversy
af so grave and delicate a character by tho
Federal authority armed with the military
power of the Government, would he at
tended with the most dangerous conse
quences te our republican institutiena. In
the opinion of tho President his interfer
ence in any political commotion in a State
could only be justified by the application
for it being clearly within the meaning of
the fourth aection of lha fourth articla of
the Constitution, and of the act of Congress
passed in pursuance thereof, end where
the domestic violence brought to his no
tice is of such n character that lha State
authorities, civil and military, after hav
ing been duly called upon, have proved
inadequate te suppree* it.
The law, as has been already stated, re
quires that the interposition of the Federal
Government should be invoked by the
Legislature of the State, unless it cannot
be convoned; and notwithstanding tho
Speaker ot the Senate states, on the 4th in
stant, that the body over which bo pre
sides cannot assemble; and your Excollen
cy, in your communication of the Blh, ex
presses the opinion that the Legislature ot
Pennsylvania cannot bo convened, still
from subsequent information, which al
though not offioial comet In a form suffi •
clently authentic to entitle it to credit, it
appears that both branches of the Legisla
ture were in session in the capital of th# i
Bute on the Bth Inst , and transacted busi
ness there, and that the Striate received
me*age* from the House of Represents- i
tiveson that day. If this bo so, (and there 1
is no reason to doubt the fact the Legit- i
lalur* of the State ha* boon ccsvened ilnoi'
the date of your Excellency's tetter. Nor
duo* li appear, oltlior from your Excellen
cy's letter or llio published document,
which trotUpinM it, that tho civil or
military authorities of tho State have ro-'
fused to iterform thoir re.peetlve duties in
suppressing any existing disturbances
Your Excellency doe* not oven allude to
their heitiK inadequate to suppress the do j
meoiic violence of which you complain, or
to protect the Legislature in the perform
lance of it* official duties, either at the seat
..f government or wherever eUe they may
he convened. It appear*, on the contrary,

centrate on Morten, if he could make it
appear that be i* not a partaker in Colfax'*

put himself forward a* the champion and

a* it may eem, be ha* cho*n this rote,
and be made hi* firrt appearance on the

him, and Morton lake* the credit of push
ing him out of the Senate, in apite of the
defemive intrenchment* of Conkling, Lo

In the neit encounter. Morton thought
it prudent te be let* active, a* the subject
touched the President (with whom hedoe*
n>t wish to break) in 100 lender a spot. It
related to the confirmation of Brother-in
law Ca*ey, which Morton meiely dicoun
lenanced, while hi* Indiana colleague,
Pratt, fioured in hot (hot. Brother-in-law
Caey wa* saved, and Conkling may claim
to have-carried the day, having the strong

killed was lying asleep in a berth, and
when the cook announced supper one of
the crow (not yet af age) picked up one of
the guns, and notieing that there was no
cap on it, remarked to the captian, who
was standing near, "If this gun is not
loaded. I'll wake that fellow up and
frighten him," end drawing the ramred
ran it down the barrel, pronouncing the
gun not loaded
Taking a seat on tho rail of tho boat he
raised the hammer, put on • cap, and
reaching forward with the gun at arm's,
length, ran the barrel through a small,
grated window in the side of the trunk to j
within a lew Inches ef the sleeper's fare,
pulled the trigger, and instead of frighten
ing him by Ike explosion of the cap, sent
a load of shot through the side of the poor
fellow's face and out at the back of hts

GEORGIA AND A PROPHET OF THE
NEW DISPENSATION.
Augusta, Ga., March 28.—Joseph F.
Furry, a se-called prophet of "the new
dispensation," wa* tried at Appling, Co
lumbus Ceunty, to-day, on charge* of
adultery and fornication, before County
Judge Gibson. Curry came from Massa
chusetts with a colony of about 290 men
and women over a > jar ago, and bought
lands and settled in Columbus County.
They lived in tent* and held the property
in common. Curry called himself "Eli
jah" and "The Prophet of Jehovah"—su
preme in thing* spiritual and temporal.
Tho colony went en swimingly for a brief
period, hut the "prophet" took too many
wive*. Jealousy and insubordination en
suod in the colony, and many of tho col
onist* roturned to Massachusetts, being
provided with free passage to the nearest
seaports, either Charleston or Savannah.
Finally the colony became so demoralise.!,
and Curry so licentious, that the Grand
Jury indicted him and his queen para
mour. Curry, robed in white linen with
bead and feet bare, In imitation of the Sa
viour, appeared before the Court. Bis
queen appeared In the same attire, with
white stockings on her feet and a white
bow on bar head. Speaking in hit own
defence, ha maintained that men and wo
men could live together without cohabit- ,
ing, and that by mortification and prayer
they could become perfect. He repelled
the charge of insanity, and displayed much
erudition and familiarity with the Scrip
tures. lfe said he had revelations after
revelations that a new era had dawned
when men and women should come out ol
the natural order of things to a higher
stale of purity.
After speeches from the prosecution and
defenca jury retired, and alter half an
j hour's absence returned with a verdict
!of guilty, with a recommendation to war
joy. Sentence has been deferred for a lew
weeks. It ia thought that the prophat and
j Ida followers will be given an opportunity
j to find another Canaan far away from here
in which to pilch their tents.
