Notwithstanding the extreuio cold
weather or lntq. we have heard of
several instances of the ice breaking
underneath the weight of the teams
used in breaking roads for lumber-,
bering, such was the case with the
ox-team or Mr. Augustus Drew, on
the Stevens Pond, in Maidstone, on
Friday last. One yoke of oxen were
submerged in the mud an.l water but
were rescued with no further damage,
than a wetting.
Charle9 XV. Farr has moved bis
family into the house on the Ather

The M. E. Society held an "Old
Folks conceit in connection with
their Christmas tree on the eve. of
the 24th inst. All present received
gifts from the tree, and the evening
was passed very pleasantly by all.
We hear of several who were more or
less frost-bitten during their ride
Lome, none very seriously, however.
The thermometer indicated 44 de
grees below zero on the morning of
the 2oth ult. We are informed that
at Lancaster the thermometer indi
cated as low as 54 degrees at the
same time, but of the t ecu racy of
the report, we are not able to state.
Such extreme cold is seldom experi
enced in this county, the last before
this we believe having occulted in the
month of February 18o7, at which
time the temperature is said to have
been as low as Go degrees at the
Darling Store in this village. The
extreme cold of that year continued
for nearly a week with such severity
as to suspend travel and business
over the 11. 11. lines. We remember
the "cold snap" of 1857 was followed
by a heavy snow storm and wind
which filled the roads with drifts and
the cold was so extreme t hat no effort
was made to open the roads for, three
or four days.
The Guildhall Debating Club held
their first meeting on the evening of

O. B. Boyee, II. C. Bates, and Jos.
Chase. The present organization
is Jos. Chase, for President, John
Moore. Secretary, and Chas D. Chase,
Treasurer. The Society bids fair to
be the means of much good in the
village. The next meeting is to be
held on the evening of the lOtli inst.,
at which time the question of whether
the "Annexation of the Biitish Amer
ican Possesions to the United States
would be for the mutual advantage
of both Governments" will be up lor
discussion.

Some .enterprising thief stole a
traveling bag containing eight thotis
and dollars in notes, the property of
L. 1). llobson, together with his lum
ber account with Simon Cole for a
year, from his sleigh, while he was in
this village, on the 13th til t. Hav
ing cut the bag open and left it in the
Grand Trunk scales shed, it was af
terwards found by E. M. Dunbar,
while seeing to the weight of some
custom cars and returned to the
owner with its contents complete.
The thief doubtless supposed the bag
contained money.

The Tin Wedding of L. B. Harts
horn and wife was celebrated on the
evening of Jan. 1st, about one
hundred of their friends gathering at
their residence for th-it purpose. The
usual display of articles manufactured
of tin, embracing many not often
seen, were lavishly contributed and
presented to tlie "happy groom" and
"blushing bride" often years expe
rience, in behalf of the assembled
friends,in an appropriate and pleasing
speech by Mr. Tenncy, Mr. Hartshorn
making a most happy response
thereto, himself, after which a further
response was made by the ltev. Mr.
Ilariis. On the whole the occasion
was a decided success and highly en
joyed by all present.
Timothy Chauncey was brought
before Justice Chandler of this town
on the 2d, inst., charged with steal
ing a pair of mittens and a quantity of
candy from the store of J.G. Bowker,
on New Yeats evening, and having
plead guilty was ordered to pay a fine
of six dollars, and the costs of prose
cution amounting to the sum of six
dollars and sixty-five cents. Not
having the means to respond to this
demand he was on the 4th inst., com
mitted to jail in Guildhall, where be
now is.
Cliar'es Marden was brought before
John W. Hartshorn and Wm. Chan
dler, Justices of the Peace, on Thurs
day, the 2d inst., charged with an as
sault on Moses Eastman, with intent
to kill, and was ordered to give uouus
in the sum of two hundred dollars,
far his appearance at the March term
of Essex County Court.
The circumstances of the case, so
far ns wo have been able to learn, arc
these: Marden, who is a son-in-law
to Eastman, claims a balance of some
seventy or eighty dollars due him
from Eastman, and there has been ill
feeling between them concerning the
matter for. some time past, and some
threats of personal violence made by
Marden to Eastman. On Wednesday
as Eastman, in company with anoth
er man, was passing by Marden's
house on his wiy home from the vil
lage, as they approached the -house
they saw Marden come out and run
down the road they would take, in
advance of them. Driving on they
encountered him some fifteen rods
from the house, behaving a gun in his
hands Stepping aside out of the road
he allowed the horse to pass, and as
Eastman came opposite him, ho lev
elled the gun at Eastman's head and
attempted to discharge it, but the cap
only exploded ; Eastman whipped up
the horse and drove on out of the way.
This, we understand to have been the
testimony of Eastman and his compan
ion. Marden's story is substantially
that he had no gun, but did have a wil
low stick, which he bad picked up as ho
came from his house ; and his wife
being admitted to testify, said that
the gun was hanging in its accustom
ed place in the house all the time.
The gun on being produced was said
to show no evidence of having been
recently used, but on the other hand,
was in such a condition as would not
admit of its being fired. O. B. Boyce,
Esq., States Att'y for Essex County,
conducted the examination in behalf
of the Male.

A disgraceful affair occurred in one
of the district schools of our town
hist Friday. Three lads, the oldest
not more than sixteen 3-cars of age,
procured a bottle of liquor, which
they drank, and while under its influ
ence made such disturbance as to
break up the school. The question
suggested, and to which not only the
parents of these boys, but every
father and mother in town should de
mand an answer is, Who sold them the
liquor?
The lot of land opposite the Lan
caster House, between the residences
of I'.enj. F. Whidden and J. A.
Smith, was 011 the 4th inst., deeded
by Hiram A. and Persia E. Fletcher
to Messrs. Wm. I ley wood, Henry O.
Kent, Wm. S. Ladd and J. A. Smith.
It is understood to be the object of
the purchasers to secure this lot as a
site for an Episcopal Church, the
building of which there is a strong
probability will be commenced at an
early day.
The handsomest haul of fish we

The Der-nociatic Sixth Councillor
and Twelfth Senatorial Districts, and
Coos County Conventions were held
at the American House Hall, Thurs
day evening, the Oth. James J. Barrett
of Littleton was re-nominated for
Senator, but declined to serve, and E.
B. Parker of Franconia was nominated
in nis stead. Nathan K. Perkins of

On Thursday morning, about 12 :30
o'clock, one of the most disastrous con
flagrations occurred that ever visited
our village. The lire caught in the
machine shop on Middle St., owned by
Alexander Thompson, and when dis
covered had made such headway that
nothing could be done to save that
building or the grist mill adjoining. By
the strenuous efforts of the fire com
panies and citizens, the fire was confin
ed to the two buildings named, although
others were closely connected on both
sides. The entire loss is estimated at
about 825,000 as follows : Alexander
Thompson, machine shop and machin
ery, 17,000; no insurance. Frank
Smith & Co., and John P. Hodge,
grist mill and contents, 88,000.
Insured for 84,000. Mr. A. J.
iUarsnall, proprietor ot the car
riage shop, nearly opposite the burned
buildings, was seriously, and it was
thought at the time, fatally injured ,by
the falling of a chimney upon him as
he was .in his wheel-house endeavoring
to set his force pump in operation. He
was rescued from his perilous situation
with much difficulty, and carried home
in an insensible condition. J lis inju
ries, though severe, proved to be most
ly external, from which he is in a fair
way to recover.

There will not be as large an amount
of lumber hauled this winter as last,
owing partly to holders of timber
lands refusing to sell to lumbering
companies, except at exorbitant
prices.
It is rumored that the ex-Selectmen

Mr. Churles Hight, of this town,
died very suddenly on Monday. He
was in his usual health until within an
hour of his death and during the fre
part of the day was cngwged chopping
wood. Mr. Hight represented his
town in the Legislature in 1870 ami
1871, and had held other town ollices.
He leaves a family.
The great "Mountain case," Henry
B. Wells vs. The Jackson Iron Man
ufacturing Company, was settled by
the parties, at Concord, last week. It
has been pending in court eleven years.
It has been once partially and once
fully tried by a jury, the last time oc
cupying three weeks, and It has been
transferred twice to the Law Term,
and the decisions are reported in the
47th and 48th vols., of the N. H. Re
ports. The County of Coos will have
no further expense for the trials of
this suit. One other case depending
upon this was settled at the same time,
besides other chances for litigation
that might have furnished business
for the courts for an indefinite length
of time.
State Items.
Newfane recently lost its most nota
ble personage in the death of David
Brown. He suffered a disapointmcnt
in love when young, which nearly un
settled his reason, and he developed
an extraordinary passion for books,
particularly books of travel. When
forty-four years old he married and
lived happily for four or five years,
when his wife 'died, leaving an infant
daughter. After this he turned her
mit, and for the last fifteen years had
lived in a house alone, buying and
reading books and writing poetry.
In his earlier days he wrote and pub
lished fiva hundred copies of a small
book called "Florence Mangrove,"
and it is said, though it seems hardly
credible, that at the time of his death
he had the largest collection of books
and papers in Vermont.
An influential county convention
was held at Burlington recently, to
take measures to resist the payment of
the oppressive State tax laid by the
Legislature. The feeling was unani

will, and with 110 sense of weariness,
the movement and time being describ

Wright's Mountain, near Bradford,
received its name from the fact that
a religious fanatic by that name once
ascended thai eminence to fast fortv
days, in imitation of Christ. He got
a belt with forty holes, by which to
tighten himself up eacli day one hole.
He tried it two days, and came down
to his house to get some luncheon.
A black bear undertook to cross
Glastenburg railroad track, in Ver
mont, just v.heal of the down truii the

and didn t stop to take an account of
the damage done to the ugly wander
er, oeoiire says it lie hit him he
made the fur fly ; but the storm of
snow and wind that night covered all
tracks. He didn't even stop to give
the animal the salutation one of our
ady citizens did who saw a bear sit
ting 111 the road just ahead of her,
on the old turnpike, a few years since.
She shook her apron at him and told
him to "shoo, you devil," and he
shoo'd !
A serious accident occurred at the
Memphremagog House, Newport, last
Sunday evening. An escape of gas
was noticed and while the proprietor
ami his engineer were looking for its
cause the gas ignited froine the match
which they carried and uotn were
badly burned. The engineer was in
jured internally, it is thought ; and
Mr. Bowman was so badly disfigured
that Ins leaturcs were hardly recog
nizable.

hair is thickened, fallen hair checked,

of fouling tho hair with a pasty sedi

Its occasional use will prevent ths hair

Cherry Pectoral,
For Diseases of tho Throat and Lungs,
bucU as Coughs, Colds, Whooping
Cough, Bronchitis, Asthma,
and Consumption. .
Among tlio grmt
discoveries of modern
fciencc, low aro of
more nnl . value bi
mankind than this ef
fectual remedy for all
dieasc9 of the Tliroat
and LuHgf. A vast
trial of its virtues,
throughout this and
other countries, lint
shown tliut it does
surely nd effiotually
control them. Tlie testimony of our best citi
rant, of all classes, ettablinhes Iho fact, that
Cnunnv I'kctobal will and does relievo and
euro tho aftlictir.ft disorders of tho Throat and
Lungs beyond any other medicine. The most
dangerous affections of tlia Tulmonary Organs
yield to its power; snd cases of Consump
tion, cured by this preparation, aro public
ly known, so remarkablo as hardly to bo bo
lievod, wero they not proven beyond difpute.
As a remedy It Is adequate, on which the publio
may rely for full protection. By curing Coughs,
the forerunners of more serious disease, It suvos
unnumbered lives, and an amoutit of suffering
not to be computed. It challenges trial, and con
vinces the most sceptical. Every family ehojdrt
keep It on hand as a protection sgalnKt the early
and uupercelved attack of I'ulmonary Aflectien!,
which aro easily met at first, but which becomo
incurable, and too often fatal, if neglected. Ten
der lungs need this defence; and It U unwiso to
bo without it. Ai a safeguard to children, amid
tho distressing diseases which beset tlio Throat
and Chest of Childhood, Cherry 1'hctoi;ai.
Is Invaluable; for, by its timely use, multl
titudes aro rescued from prematnro graves, and
-saved to tho lovo and affection centred on them.
It acts speedily and surely against ordinary colds,
securing sound and health-restoring sleep. Xe
one will suffer troublesome Influenza and pain
ful Bronchitis, when they know bow easily .
they can bo cured.
Originally the produrt of long, laborious, and
successful chemical investigation, no cost or toil
is spared in making evory bottle In tlie utmost
possible perfcetiou. It may bo confidently j-o-Hod
upon as possessing all tho virtues It has over
exhibited, and eapablo of producing cures as
memorable as the greatest it has cror eflbctod.
