SrNTFXCFD Charles W Scott t fornwlr of Newbury, was on Tnes-! day of last week sentenced to the New Jersey state prison for three years, for several forgeries, swind ling, Sic. He had been at work selling lightning rods for Mr. John P. Felker of I'arton, and he would ajrree to rod a man's building for ?, or 10 as the case might lto, write a ftote for the amount ami afterwards add a cipher ; he would then deliver them up to his employer. In other cases he would sell a man some rods, jet the money and make no returns to Mr. Felker, His various transac tions resulted in a Kss to the latter of some over 8300), though lie is able to stand it. We knew Scott some twenty years ago in Xcwhury ; he at that time bid fair to land where he now is ; he war a wayward young man, though possessing fine talents and a good academic educa tion. At that time he forged an or der upon II. & F. Keyes of that town, signed his lather's (Rev. Orange Scott) name 10 it. drew the money and went to Uoslon, was ar rested and brought back again. We have heard of him several times ince, hut never any very good re port. His father was one or the first men of his time, a man of rare gifts and oitst earnest Christian. He died sevrml years since; his mother (Amy Scott) and whose " Me luoirs" are published, died when he was quite yoking; both called home before the crowning shame of their Bon. Let us give him our pity. Newbury Seminary. The fall term of this Institution closed on Wednesday. On Monday evening Rev. W. S.
