Somo moan thief, a few lays Hi nee, entered the school house, No. 3. in Tusciirora township, whicli Ik used as a )lacc of worship by the United Brethren, and stole a large hanging lamp belonging to the congregation. Old Persons. There are few election dis tricts in the State which have so large a proportion of old persons among their vo ters as there is in this borough. Of the whole list of voters in lilooinliold borough, more than one HL'th are over sixty years of The new Church Edifice erected by the Reformed Congregation in Newport, will bo dedicated to the service of tho Triune od, on Hunday, the 1G7A of January, 1870. Several eminent ministers are expected to be present on tho occasion. The public are respectfully invited to be present. y The Iterlval. Tho protracted meeting of tho Presbyterian Church, which at the timo of issuing our last number, was still in session, has been closed. The result of the meeting was very gratifying. Already twenty-nine persons have been admitted to membership in that church, and there is a prospect of still further addition. In this case, the number of men among tho con verts is unusually great, they being more than half of the number. A scries of meetings are now being held by the Lutheran congregation in this bor ough, which wo hope will meet with equal success. A spirited revival is also going on in tho Lutheran Church at Mansville. Sixteen poisons were forward on Saturday evening last, seeking forgiveness. God speed the good work. Lucky Hunters. Some of the hunters who go from this co unty to Black log, are inoro fortunate than those who went from this borough. Itufus and Henry Potter of Milford, on a recent visit to Black Log Val ley, captured five deer. One large buck they brought home witli them and the oth ers they disposed of there. h( Teachers' Institute. During the past week, Superintendent Korr and tho teach ers of Perry county have been holding their annual Convention. Of tho ono hundred and sixty-eight teachers employed in tho county, about ono hundred were present. From what we heard, wo think, as a gen eral thing, the exercises gave entire satis faction. If tho gentlemen did not pass the week pleasantly, it certainly was not be- causo they were deprived of ladies' society, for it is not often that in this borough we have the opportunity of seeing so many rosy cheeks and bright eyes. We don't blamo the young mon for being in favor of "Teachers' Institutes." Read our UQTertlscmcuts. They are not o dull and uninteresting as you think them, and you may oftjn in them stumble over something to your advantage ; at any rate ; read the one inserted for AVanamakcr & Brown, and see if it does not porsuade you that Oak Ilall is the place where you should buy your fall suit Very Unfortunate. Our readers will re member tho account of an accident which happened nearly three mouths since, to Mr. Emanuel Dugan, of Whcatiield township, wuereoy ins leg was brolcen. jsy some means the bono got misplaced, and a short tinio sine, the splints were taken off, when it was found that the bone had not knit in tho least, and the fracture had to bo re-sct, The medical men now fear that it never will knit together, as such things rarely occur. Singular Hog Disease. Mr. Robert Neil son of Centre township, this county, killed several hogs a few days since, two of which had to bo thrown away, owing to their hav jug somo peculiar disease They soemcd as well before being killed, and were as fat as the others, but when cleaned all tho fat meat was of a deep yellow color, and tho lard had the saino appearance Nothing just like this has been seon in this vicinity, and the question now is what was the matter with them. ScTcnty Dollars Out. A bout two weeks since a man named Wells, in tho employ of Mr. David I. Rice, at Porrysville, was sent to bank by himtodeposittheabove amount, He, however, forgot to cofno back, and af ter waiting somo time for his return, search was mado for him, when ho was found in Tuscarora twp., making tracks for the mountains. Tho money was not recovered, as Wells asserted that he lost it before re a ching the bank. Justice Wharton committed him to jail. A Narrow Escape. On tlia morning of the 22nd ult., two men named Jacobs and Zeigler crossed one of tho foldings of the Canodoguinct Creek, in Cumberland Co., to do a day's butchering. On their return the samo evening they found tho creek had risen considerably, but cono luded to ven ture tho crossing. They had not proceeded far before tho horse and carriage began to move rapidly down the stream. The men called loudly, hoping to alarm Mr. Wolf a near resident, but the roaring of the water was such, that they failed to make Jiim hear, but succeeded in starting up ijip dogs, so that they continued barking, and at tracted the attention of tho family. Mr. Wolf then wont to their assistance and suc ceeded in getting both the men safely nto his boat. During tho excitement of gptr ting the men out of the parriage the polo used to push the boat was lost, and tho only thing left, with which to navigate the boat was a sausage stuffor, With this they howover succeeded in reaching tho shore, bringing the horse and vehicle with them. It was a fortunate escape and had it not been for tho prompt aid of Mr. Wolf, both men and horse would have been drowned. As it was the horse was nearly exhausted. Suicide. On tho evening of tho 24th ult., the wife of William Lidig, a carpet weaver residing a littlo distance from Mont gomery's Ferry, on the Bucks Valley road, committed suicide by hanging herself with somo carpet chain, to a cherry tree in the yard. She had just recovered from a fit of sickness, but for several weeks had shown some symptoms of insanity, and it was probably during ono of these fits that tho deed was committed. She was discovered about 10 o'clock at night, while tho body was still warm, but instead of cutting her down, and trying to restore life, she was al lowed to hang until tho alarm had brought some neighbors, and tho coroner was sum moned. By that timo she was stiff and cold. The branch to which she attached the chain was so low that her knees touched the ground, upon which they firmly rested. A Change. We call attention to tho chango which has taken place in tho firm of Wright & Siddall. Tho firm uow being Siddall and Markley. Those who have heretofore dealt with Mr. Siddall will bo sure to continue their dealings, and those who have not yet giveu them a call should take an early opportunity of so doirfg. The place of business is still at No. 119 Market street, Philadelphia. Don't be Hunibugcd with the foolish idea that catarrh cannot be cured ! The world move, and medical science is progressive.
