Milten Gess,the boy who a charged with having set fire te Jacob Behrer's barn in Btrasburg township en July 12th, was taken before Judges Patterson and Livingston en a writ of hahem eerput this morning. The evidence showed that the boy lived with Witmcr J. Rohrer, the young man who farms the place en which the barn was burned. On the day et the fire the boy who had been working in an eats field was sent by Mr. Ilehrcr te go te work hoeing in a patch near the house. About 2 o'clock 3Ir. Kehrcr and his men, while at work m the harvest field, discovered that the barn was en lire. They quickly ran te the burning building and did all in their power te save the property. Ne notice was taken of the boy until supper, te which he came late ; he then told Mr. Rohrer that he first smelt the smoke while at work in the patch ; he went te the barn and saw two tramps leaving the bam. That evening six tramps were arrested and taken te Strasburg where they heard be fore 'Squire Boek. The boy who is new accused of the crime was present :it the heariiig. Four of the tramps were dis charged at once and the two ethers were held until the next morning when they were discharged. At the squire's office the boy get mixed up in his story in regard te 1 he tramps, and the squire suspected that he was lying. He took him into a private room and after talking te him a short time went away and sent young Mr. Rehicr te talk te him. The boy finally confessed te Mr. Rohrer that he had set the barn en fire ; he struck a match en his leg and it fell down the hay hole, but he did net want te fire the barn. A number of witnesses were called te tes tify as te the character of the boy. Seme, said that he had for years been very mis chievous ; he is a boy who has been teased a great deal by his companions, as well as by ether folks, including some of the wit nesses ; he is very quick, and people teased him in order te hear his ready answers. Several of the witnesses thought him a bad boy, and one said he knew nothing of him which he would consider bad previous te this charge. . The court said there was sufficient evi dence te send the ca.se te the grand jury and they would fix the bail at 8500. The security could net be furnished te-day and the boy was taken back te prison. Wild llarry'H" Case. Harry Mc Alpine, better known as "Wild Harry," was before the judges en a writ this morning.

The Alleged "Bad Housekeeping aad Bad Boek-keeping" A BeaoIaUea Adopted by the County CMamlateaen. At a meeting of the beard of county commissioners held this morning, the fol lowing preamble and resolution were adopt ed : WnEHEAS, The act of A's jmbly of 1830 P. L. p. 9GSec. 8, in reference te the ex penses of the Lancaster county prison, provides that Fer the funds necessary for keeping, finding aud maintaining said prison the inspectors shall apply te the commissioners of said county, aud if it shall appear te said commissioners that the sum applied for is reasonable, and and the accounts of the said inspectors are properly kept and adjusted, the commissioners :ball draw their elder en the county treasurer in favor of the treasurer of said prison for such sum as shall benccessary, &c; and, Whereas, In the last annual report of the auditors of said beard of prison in in siwcers, they say : " In examining the ac ac aceunts of the treasurers of the beaid of prison inspectors of Lancaster county we discover that these treasurers did net charge themselves with all the money icceivcd from the ceunjy commis sioners and prison keeper," &c. "That sometimes mine money is drawn from the county than is necessary in order that the keeper may have funds en hand for cigars, "The difficulty seems te be a lack of a stamps." &c. prejier system of accounting between the prison keeper and the beard of prison inspectors. That the prison keeper with the power of disposing of the large quan tity of goods manufactured by inmates should fall se far behind the necessary funds as te lequire the inspectors te leave balances in his hands for which they are charged by the county treasurer and directly lespensible te him, argues a system of housekeeping which reflects en all parties connected with this institution, destroys the system of checks and vouch ers by which alone the people can be pro tected, and leaves a loop hole from which te escape the closest scrutiny of the ac counting officers. The auditors cannot tee strongly advert te the loose manner of accounting which at present exists in prison circles, especially the freedom with which the treasurers of that institution pass ever the items which should fortify their accounts, aud deal only in balances which the public when tlie.se sicceunts are filed for inspection, have no 111010 means of verifying than if no accounts had been filed." And whkkkas, By the icpert of the proceedings of this July (1SS0) meeting of said beard of prison inspectors, it ap pears that the " eash book of said prison containing certain cash acceurts was miss ing, by which the inspectors are prevented from collecting outstanding bills, and can net tell who has been paid and who has net. New, therefore, IleiMlced by the beard of commissioners or Lancaster county, that while we de net wish te threw any impediment in the way of the beaid of prison inspectors in their prompt and efficient perform ance of duty, yet in face of the above reports and in recognition of our duty under the law as above cited, we de hereby request the said beard of prison inspectors at the time et applying ter mr ther funds for the expenses of said prison, that they exhibit te us such accounts, books and reports as may be necessary te satisfy this beard that the amounts de manded are reasonable and that the ac counts of said inspectors are properly kept and adjusted as required by law. C. Cem.E, President. Isaac IJrsnoxe, Runr.KT Montgomery. Commissioners. OFFICIAL VISIT. The Lancaster County Commissioner! Visit Berks. Yesterday morning our county commis sioners, Messrs. Bushong, Ceble and Mont gomery, took a run ever te Reading, where they were met by Commissioner W. S. Yeung, who paid them every possible attention. They inspected the court house, prison and ether public institu tions, and come home very favorably impressed with the management of them, and arc satisfied that Berks is far ahead of Lancaster. Their prison is as sound as a rock, while ours is tumbling te pieces. The maintenance of prisoners in Berks last year cost only $5,000, while in Lancaster the cost was $29,000. The coroner's fees arc net mere than $400 or $500 annually, while ours are $2,300. Their magistrates' fees for dismissed cases, including constables' bills, are only about $2,000, while ours, exclusive of constables' bills, resch almost $15,000. The bill of the district attorney of Berks coun ty, for the past three months, was about $250; our district attorney's bills are mere than four times as much. Fer printing Mid publishing, including all blanks and books used by the county, Berks pays about $3,000 ; we pay $10,000. And se it is with all ether expenses. In Berks the officers appear te de the best they can for the interests of the county ; in Lancaster the officers de the best they can for themselves. Our commissioners tame home last even ing impressed with the belief that "reform is necessary," and about the first thing they did this morning was te dispute Corener Mishlcr's last bill, and next te adept a preamble and resolution relative te prison affairs, which we print elsewhere. CATTLE KILLED. The Result of Malicious Blischicr . This morning about half-past 2 o'clock a herd of cows, ten in number, belenging te Emanuel Dcnlingcr, strayed from his barnyard near Gordeuville aud get upon the track of the Pennsylvania railroad. The second Empire freight train west ran into the herd, struck one of the cows, crippled it and threw it te the north side of the track. The Philadelphia express train east came along about the same time and running into the herd killed two of the cows and severely injured;three ethers. Fortunately no damage was done te either of the trains. Mr. Dcnlingcr is positive that his barnyard gate was securely fast ened last night, and has no doubt it was opened by some person unknown, probably with the intention of wrecking the trains then nearly due, and robbing the dead or disabled passengers. Conductor Glenn's Condition. Conductor Charles Glenn is reported te be rapidly improving at the Harrisburg hospital. His amputated limbs are heal ing nicely. His sister is still with him. The committee of gentlemen living along the line of the Pennsylvania railroad, in the vicinity of Philadelphia, appointed te eriHecf. subscrintien for a testimonial te Conductor Glenn, report that 2,501.60 has been collected for the stations along the Pennsylvania railroad, the largest contribu tor being Edward N.
