NEW BL00MFIELD, PENN'A. Tuesday, June 14, 1870. Hon. 11. J. Haldeman has our thanks for public documents and particularly for a copj of memorial addresses on llou. Wni. Pitt lesscnden. Railroad fares in some sections hare been greatly reduced. Passengers are now carried from Chicago to New York for $20, and from Boston to Chicago for $21 75. This is too cheap for the rail road companies to make much money. It is amusing to read the different ex tracts from theN. Y. Sun, by the papers of both parties Each make selections that they claim thows dirt on their op ponents. That paper must bo some like Signor Blitz's famous bottle, which turns out liquors to suit all tastes. Considerable rioting took place du ring the election for Mayor at Washing ton, D. C, last week. Tho police, how ever, succeeded in quelling it before any erious results had occurred. The regu lar Republican candidate, Bowen, was beaten by Emery, the - lleform candidate, upon whom tho Democrats and disaffect ed Republicans united. ' Last week many of the papers devo ted considerable space to the account of a terrible massacre of the Jews in Roma nia. The whole account tnrns out to be a cruel hoax no such occurrence having taken place and the only ground for the tumor was a trifling riot that occurred at an election which was quelled with little difficulty. JJSf An adroit thief entered the jewel ry store of Adolph Frankfield, corner of Fourteenth st., and Gth avenue.N. Y., on the 9th inst., about six o'clock, and while tho clerks were engaged with customers ho managed to secure a tray of diamonds, worth $4000, with which he escaped. No one saw tho theft committed, and there is no oluo to the thief. The increase of emigration this year ever the past two years, is quite marked. Already, the arrivals at New York in 1870, have exceeded the arrivals of the wholo of last year. One gratifying feature of this season s emigration is the largo proportion who at once push for the West and South, to engage in agricultural pur sues, thus preparing to add to the wealth as well as the population of the country. niaii Fees. David Dudley Field re ceived $300,000 fee from the Erie Rail road. Jeremiah S. Black got $135,000 from the New Almaden mine case. Wil liam M.. Kvarts hasa professional income of $125,'000, and recently charged $5000 fpr one speech which occupied eighty minutes. Legal practice pays well if the practitioner onco gets on the upper floor but tho trouble is.so many pass their wholo lives iu the basonient. ' Several elections that have recently taken placo, havo resulted disastrously to the regular party candidates. At tho election in Hartford last week, the regu lar Republican candidate was bcatcu by the citizens' tiokot. In Washington, D. C, at the election of last week, the re sult was the samo. These things go to show that tho people aro gradually cut ting looso from party ties, and claiming the right which a free people ought to en joy tho privilege of voting as thoir judgment may dictate. From these ra sulta the party leaders ought to learn that it is necessary to pay more regard to the wishes Tof the people, in the selection of theiu candidates, and that failing to do this, tha peoplo will no longer blindly vote tho " regular ticket." If these defeats should secure tho se lection of better candidates and tho elec tion of better men, it would be a result most gratifying to good wen of both parties. ' Fairmount Park under the manage ment of the Park Commisioncrs is rapid ly becoming an ornament to the city 6f Philadelphia; and even now, will com pare favorably with tho Central Park, of which the New Yorkers are so justly proud. It is but a few years since the Fair mount Park covered only five acres, and when we consider that it has grown to its present enormous size comprising nearly three thousand acres and that the city has acquired the title to all this land, with an outlay of a little more than three and a quarter millions of dollars, we do not feel surprised that tho Com missioners think they have reason to be gratified with the success of their labors. From a copy of their report now be fore us, accompanied by maps, showing the extent of the improvements made, we cannot help a feeling of astonishment at the amount of labor which has been done in so short a time. It is, however, one of the things that cannot be properly appreciated without being seen, and we advise every reader who visits Philadelphia, to devote one day to the examination of this beautiful place, and they will consider that Philadelphi ans havo good reason to feel proud of Fairmount Park. m m Singular Premonition of Death. William Jones an old citizen and an octogenarian, of Sumner county, Tenn., died near Sandersvillo a short time since with singularly accurate premonitions of the approaching event. He was at the church at thr.t place on the Sunday be fore his death, and in unusual good health. On his return home ho remar ked to his wife that as sonn as his son John returned from Robertson county where he was on a visit that he wan ted his grave-clothes sent for us he would soon die. Mrs. Jones asked him why he thought so ; that he was looking well, &c, but he adhered to his predictions that he would soon die. His son returned on Monday, and he repeated his directions as to his grave clothes, with the additional instruction to go up into the lot and he would find some stones that he had gotten up setting against a certain tree, and that he wanted them put at the head and foot of his grave. They were found as he stated one of them of sufficient weight to try the strength of the stoutest man. He was taken ill the same day, and Dr. James Franklin, a skillful physician, was sent for. lie was administered to, but died the following Thursday, and was buried on Friday. Among the members of his family at tho funeral was a daugh ter, a Mrs. Campbell a wid w, about fifty years of age. She stated to a sister, after the interment, that she would be the next one buried there. Her sister re plied that no one could foretell when death would come. She replied " Yes," that "she knew very well that she was to die soon," and, sure enough, in a few days she was laid by the side of her father. Murder and Suicide. A terrible murder was committed in Philadelphia on Tuesday evening last. The victim was a young woman living as servant with Mr. 11. Holloway in South 8th street. Tho murderer had paid at tention to tho girl for several years, and was rather a dissolute character, and had been forbidden the house by Mr. II. On the evening mentioned, the family were absent, and Stratton the murderer, enter ed the room where the girl was sitting, and shot her through the heart, producing instant death. lie then shot himself through the temple, living only a lew minutes alter the arrival of Mr. Hollo way, who came in just as he heard the explosion of the pistol. The cause of the murder is unkuown, but it is supposed to have been instigated by jealousy. A Cuban PriTateer. The English Board of Admiralty are greatly excited over tho clearance of the steamer "Chieftain" under extremely suspicious circumstances. Her papers were in excellent shape, but her unusu ally heavy arniameut excited suspicion, which was somewhat allayed when the commander explained that he feared con tact with Japanese pirates. It has since beeo ascertained that she has flung to the breeze the flag of the Cuban insurgents, and was on her way to Cuba. The British Consul at Havana has "been tele gruphed, and measures will bo taken to prevent Spanish coMmcrce from being pillaged. JKiy A man- in Philadelphia had anothier ono arrested the other day for calling him a shillysholler; Ho said he did not care for tho name particularly bub he wanted to know what it meant. Bold Robbery. Last Monday night thieves effected an entrance to the gold and silver-plating establishment of George P. Pilling, N. W. corner of Seventh and Chestnut streets and robbed it of $1000 worth of silver, ware, Masonic jewels, &o. Tho rascals entered off Seventh street, by means of false keys. They then "jimmied" the door leading to the office, and onco in side commencod working at the safe. To prevent jarring, they placed tho wed ges in the side, and under the wheels cot ton pads. They then took a ten-pound sledge-hammer and battered the doro off the hindges. The rascals were evi dently experts, as they selected from the stock of plated and genuine silver goods nothing but tho standard articles. Hav ing secured sufficient booty they left, leaving behind them twenty augcr-bits, the slodge-hanimcr, a dark-lantern, and two jimmies. All this was done without any knowledge on the part of our "effi cient" police force, although within two squares of the Mayor's office. Philadel phia Inquirer. Indian Troubles. Captain Mitchell, of tho Fifth infantry, arrived at St. Louis, last week, from the Indian country. He furnishes an account of a recent at tack on Bear Creek station forty miles south of Fort Dodge. A band of thirty five Indians came to the station, which was guarded by Sergeant Murray and four men of theth'.id infantry, who rep resented themselves ns Arrapahocs. Af ter cooking and eating some time in a friendly manner all but seven left. Those remaining then shot two of Mur ray's men and severely wounded the ser geant himself, after which they fled. Sixty mules belonging to Mr. Trahig, a trader of Camp Supply, were run off and one herder was killed. Two or three other men were also killed at differeut places. Fearful Accident. On the 8th inst., on tho Vermont R. R. a terrible accident occurred. The night train from Boston ran into a cul vert and wrecked the train about two miles from Summit station. An engine with a car attached was sent from the latter place to render assistance, and after taking on board the passengers and train men started for Ilutland. About one mile north of Summit the relief train ran into another culvert, the passenger car going down with the engine. The result was three men were killed and twelve men badly wounded. The Coal strikes have brought tho re sult many expected. That is an attempt which bids fair to be successful, to put foreign coal on the free list. Should this action be finally taken, and our coal op erators have to compete with cheap for eign labor, they will have only them selves to thank for it. For Eeveral years the people have been at tho mercy of theso greedy coal operators, and compelled to pay the fiddlcr,while the miners danced. If this effort should fail, tho coal dealers can, wo trust, learn wisdom enough to, in future conduct their business in such a manner, that there will be no further in ducement for placing this article on the free list. A Terrible fire occurred in Constan tinople last week. For a long time the attempts of the citizens and firemen to control tho flames were futile, churches Mosques and hundreds of houses fell a victim to tno devouring element. The loss of life by falling of walls was consid erable, and the only way the fire was stopped, was by blowing up some build ings. Among tho burned houses are the residences of nearly all the principal Am bassadors. The loss of property is very great, us the burnt district was the finest portion of the city. Tho loss of life is reported to exceed one thousand persons. JttSF A distressing accident occurred at the Alhambra Concert Hall iu London on the 7th inst. While the ballet was in progress, and the scene was crowded with dancers, one of tho largo trap-doors in tho centre of the stage gave way, and a number ot the dancers, who were group ed on tho spot, wero violently precipita ted into the space under the slage, which was unusally deep and was filled with machinery and theatrical lumber. Eleven of the uufortunato girls were badly injured.and some, it is feared fatally.
