ble calamity at the mines at this place bag
cast a gloom over tbe whole valley, and the excitement attending tbe sudden ad vent of the king of terrors bas caused many kinds of rumors to be put before the pub lic. As near as can be ascertained from the excited state of things, we draw the follow ing facts: The West Pittston shaft, owned by the Lehigh Valley railroad company, and operated by C. A. Blake & Co., of New York, and of which S. H. Brown, of Wilkesbarro, is resident manager, was DISCOVERED TO BE ON FIRE at one F. M. Saturday. Tbe fire was cansed by an improperly oiled journal of the sliivo or pulley over wbich the wire rope for hoisting carriages from thh shaft is run. This occured in what is called tbe head house, some forty feet above tbe mouth of the shaft. Tbe fire rapidly communicated to the breaker, and soon the whole structure was in flames. The scene now beggars all de scription. It being well known through out town that tbe men were in the shaft working, although contrary to the provi sions of tho mine ventilation biil, which provides tbat not more than twenty men shall be allowed to work in a mine with only one opening, and those to be employ ed in making a new one. Notwithstand ing this law there were at least sixty men down the shaft, and wives, mothers and sisters rushed to tho scene of disaster, fill ing the air with their cries and lament,.. One poor woman had a father, husband and three brothers buried in this living tomb. The engineer stood nobly at his post, and commenced the work of bringing out the miners as fast as possible, but only succeeded in hoisting the carriage three times, when on tho fourth trip the rope broke, precipitating tbe carriage and its occupants to the bottom. Tbo engineer still kept to his post, how ever, keeping the fan in operation which supplied the mine with pure air, until bo badly burned he could no longer work, _dil the belting burned, when tbe fan stop ped, and thus cut off the supply of tbe life-giving element for the poor fellows Dispatches were quickly sent to Wiikes barre and Scranton for fire engines to as sist In subduing the flames, and they were as quickly forwarded by rail, special trains being provided for the purpose. Upon arriving on the ground, it was found no water could be procured nearer than the river, (the Susquehanna,) about 8,600 feet distant. Fortunately hose enough had been brought, and one engine was set to work drawing water, while the other played on tho fire. Tbe work of subduing the flames con tinued till about 6 P. JU. When they wero sufficiently under control to commence re moving the debris of the breaker, whicb had fallen over the mouth of tbe shaft, — rigging was hastily constructed. for the ! purpose of lowering as soon as an entrance [ could be affected, and at 11 P. M. this ob- . ject was attained, and a dog lowered into the shaft to ascertain the condition of the air. After remaining about three minutes be was drawn up alive. This gave hopes ! to the crowd of anxious watchers. A man was then lowered thirty feet, and upon be ing drawn up, reported the air foul but till bearable. Volunteers were then called for and speedily found* for the humane yet fearful task of entering the shaft for the rescue of their comrades. At 12:30 the first man was brought out alive, and cheer after cheer rent tho air. The work of mercy then progressed as rapidly as possible, but still very slowly to those watching for their loved ones. feL'p to 5 P. M. to-day tbe men were fought up one and two at a time. Thos. Edwards, one of the men brought \ i, is able to converse, and says when it is discovered that tbe shaft wag on fire some of the men grew frantic and vainly endeavored to scale the sides of tbe shaft, whicb is 260 feet deep, only to be driven back by tho falling embers ; others fell to praying and singing hymns. Fathers and sons and brothers kissed each other and bid farewell, knowing full well their fearful doom. A party of twelve went towards the eastern gang-way and built a barricade, writing on the outside, "We are all here." They were found in a state of intenße agony, having been for twenty-four hours in the foul air of the mine. Five of them only were living. Mr. William Abbott, one of the Penn sylvania coal company's men, says, tbat when be went down in the mine this morning, he found tbat the water was but three or four feet deep, but the air was so bad that it was only by the most strenuous exertions that he was able to retain strength sufficient to get the men out. He had two assistants, who were almost unable to aid bim in the least. The people here, while sorrowing for the dead, cannot help giving vent to feelings of thankfulness that so many were saved. During the day people from Wilkes barre, Plymouth, Scranton, Carbondale, and all the surrounding towns and villages have visited tbe scene of the disaster, and it is thought tho total number of visitors has not been less thau ten or twelve thou- It is thought that several of those who were brought out alive cannot live ; but all is being done for them that is possible for any human being to do. At tbe churches and Sunday schools to day tbe attendance was so meagre tbat tbe regular order of exercises was not at tempted. The feelings of the community can bet ter be imagined than described ; and now tbat all anxiety for those in the mine is past, every one seems to be looking to the welfare of those living, yet so near death. ■ , ... The "Forward march" is not genera' along the whole line, as the following from the Lexington (Mo.) Caucasian will Rescind every act, repudiate every debt, cancel every obligation, annul every amendment, bill, and resolution; undo everything that has been done in the last ten hideous years—except just so much as may be maintained by a freo, full, fair, I uotrammeled vote of the whole people of i tbe country—return to the grand old con stitution of our fathers as it was, uu patched, uustniued ; in fact, wipe out and begin anew. -• • A man by the name of W. ,f.

It is evident to .11 Intelligent mln.ls that the time bu come when those engaged In rnral pursuit should have an organization devoted entirely to tbeir Interests. Buch It is Intended to make the Order of Patrons It was Instituted In 1807; iv growth Is unprecedented In the hintory of secret as sociatloni, and It Is acknowledged one of the mos useful and powerful organisations In the United States. Its grand objects are not only general 1m provetuent In husbandry, but to increase the general happlneis, wealth, and prosperity of the country. 1 i. tonnded upon the axioms that tho products o the soil eoraprise the basis of all wealth ; that mdl vidua! happiness depends npou general prosperity and that tbe wealth of a country depends upon the general Intelligence and mental culture of the pro ducing classes. In the meetings of this Order all but members are excluded, and there is in its proceedings a symbol ized rttual, pleasing, beautiful, and appropriate, which is designed not only to charm tho fancy, but to cultivate and enlarge tbo mind and purity the heart, having at the same tlrae,strict a.aptation to rural pursuits. Tbe secrecy of the ritual and proceedings of the Order have beon adopted chiefly for tho purpose of accomplishing desired efficiency, extension, and uni ty, and to secure among its members, in the internal working of tbe Order, confidence, harmony, and ... Women are admitted to full iiiewber.hip, and we solicit the co-operation of women because of a conviction that without her aid success will be less certain and decided. Much might bo said in this conne'tion, bnt every husband and brother knows that whero he can be accompanied by his wife or sister no lessons will be learned but those of purity and truth. The|Order of the Patrons of Husbandry will ac complish a thorough systematic organization among Farmers and Horticulturists throughout the United Stiites, and will secure among them intimate social relations and acquaintance with each other, for the advancement and elevation of their pursuits, with an appreciation and protection of their true interests. By such means may be accomplished lhat which exists throughout the country in all other avocations and among all other classes—combined co-operative association for individual improvement and common benefit. Among the advantages which may be derived from tho Order are systematic arrangements lor procur- I aud disseminating, in the most expoditious man* , information relativo to crops, demand and sup prices, markets, and transportation throughout country ; also for the purchase and exchange of k, seeds, and desired varieties of plants and s.and for the purpose of procuring help at home rom abroad, aud situations for persons seeking iloyment; al'O for ascertaining and testing the Its of newly.iuventod farming lmploroonts and ip not In general use, and for detecting and ex ng those that are tiuwortby, and for protecting, all available means, the farming interests from id and doception ; and combinations of evory kind. rv*o Ignore all political or religious discussions in the Order; wo do not solicit the patronago of any sect, association or Individual, upon any grounds whatever except upon the intrinsic merit of the Or* dor. Tho hotter to secure greater benefits to our mem bers, wo desire to establish Granges iv every city, town, and village In the United States.

Sydnor wo.klng the Watt plow and 8 Graves the Diile— both of whom bandied them with masterly skill and The plows entered were the Dixie two horse right and left-hand plows, and the Watt two-horte left hand. Soon after the trial commenced, the beam of the Dixie right-band broke in two and was laid aside, the contest being narrowed to the Watt left hand and Dixie left-hand. The soil first selected was a stubble loam without soil ; but at the plows were new, and did not turn in consequence of the roughness of the castings, after a short trial it waa decided to take them into another field where the toil waa a well-trodden, tenacious clay, with a timo thy sod covered with vegetation and with straw. The plows hero performed their work admirably, cutting and turning clear without choking. As the Dixie waa a new comer, aa the contest waxed warm most of the judges took hold of it to I eat personally its practical working. While there a no intention to do injustice to any, as neither I tarty had agent or representative present, and Loth ilows did well, yet the trial, with the award of the udges, Is deemed of sufficient importance to the in- I terest of agriculture to justify its publication. The award of the judges was unanimously in fiftvor I f the Dixie on the lollowing grounds: t Ist. It cut a deeper furrow. 2d. It cut a wider furrow. Sd. It more effectually inverted the sod. 4th.
