As the Major and bis troupe have been here before they need no recommend from u as they wlU undoubtedly get a lull bouse. We ahsU mentloo this troupe hereafter. Ambrose Weaver, everybody knows blm, visited Kaoe City ibis forenoon, and fell in with a party ol good fellows , Ha will state the case at Sober Opera boose, In a day or two, and all should attend. Kaoe City Is now koown by a new name. Tbey cell It Paradise. A good joke on tbororlglosl -paradise. The boys all, or nearly all, had a call to Franklin,., yesterday and today.

It Is proposed to convene a, Constitutional Congress ol the Protestant Episcopal Cburob in this couutry some time before the .veur 1B76, with a view to settling tbe diO'ereoo that btve cropped out among its ptvUisa. Mr. Abraham James, well koown as a believer In tba affleaey of tba spirits In eon oeetlon with tba looatlon of oil wells, bat written a letter to tba Clarion Democrat, which wa publish. Mr. J, Is known at the owner of tbo Harmonlal well at Pleasant- villa. W are Inclined to believe that tbo spirits will not help htm In bis Clarion en terprlsa as tbey did ( ?) at Pleaeantvllia. Here Is the tetter t Mill Crbbk Township, April If, I87S. Ma. Editor I came loto Ibis s township In November 1171, leased land and made arrangement for linking an oil well, de. clarion both publicly and privately, my foil confidence and belief that, a large pro ducing and lasting oil territory, existed beie. In Febrnary 1872, 1 commenced tba well that 1 am still drilling at, known as tbe Alliance No. I, and have been prosecuting the work-ever since, under many adverse circumstances, tls true; getting tools fast, breaking of machinery, and serious deten lioos in getting repairs by tbe Inacoessibll ity of machine shops and well supplies to But my faith In tbe ultimate result, til been suob that I have persisted against all obstacles until I have arrived at a depth of 1,645 teet, at a point wbloh is 'about 400 feel above tbe level of the Clarion river. Now I am a'.mosl dally asked tbo question why I ever oame into this seotion to seek for oil ? and wby I thus continue the search ? And oow I wish to answer tbelr quesllous that all may understand hereafter. First I am emphatically a believer in tbe Immortality of the human spirli ; that the aolive, Intelligent, Individual be ng, after tbe obange called death, still lives, having lost nothing of Its knowledge and attain meats reoelved In this life, and tbat tbe enfranchised spirit Is free to, and does com mune with Us tellow mortal still la earth life, aidiog tbem whom it loves and is at tracted to in various wsys; Inspiring tba spesker upon tbe rostrum, tbe editor in bis sacotum, tbo meohanio at his lathe, tbe obemist In bis labratory, and the geologist In bis researohes after tbe bidden myster les of old mother east A Thus have I been aided for many year In my labor, by a band of spirit friends. By propbetio words and visions, by word of encouragement, both by day and by night, and by written messages through tbe mediumsbip of others. And Id the progress ol ibis work tbey have given me testimony from lima to time of truth beyond question. Tbey tbu brought me here, mapped out to me (as they claim) the deposits ef pel roleum, shown me In visions new and uo. developed oil fields of great extent and rloboess, and urged ma to? persevere aod briog II forth for tbe use ot mankind. Thus It Is I oame and sm still urging on tbe work, with full confidence of a most successful result, and to tbem alone b the credit of tbe success, or otherwise. Yours Truly. Abra'm James. Major Goodman,, of Tionesca, wear In formed has purobssed an elegant residence at tbe upper end of Wasbiagtoa street and will soon remove to tbi place.

Oil is going up wito a jump. Wo 'quota at t!,0 today. Oil men predict it will fro np to $3 within a abort time. Good! Tbo seoner tba better. Tba Farmers' Club ol Brandywine, Peno. thinks Its State Agricultural College a dls grace. b for a local Item. There's nothing buf tbo weather aod that' gloomy enough. Capt.

Hi place Is as Beet'and clean as a new pin, and Ibose who desire to pas a pleasant hour should pay blm a visit. The water la lb lakes bas hsen very low for Iba past season, and' boats' bav been compelled lo load much lighter, than tbelr capsoity, but It Is believed tbat,. by reason, of tbe heavy fall of aoow tbe past winter, there will be bo trouble oor this ecconnr tbe coming summer. It Is a well known Not that heretofore "marryiug out" bas beeu sufficient ground for; disown meat Irom tbelr Friends. At tbelr reoent annual gatbenog, however; In Newport, Rhode Island, this provision of tbe discipline wa changed. Tbe new attempt at a revision of tbe Bible seems lo have done two good things.
