Vnluuble Cow. Some of our farmers be lieve in buying fine stock ; Mr. Frederic Barnctt having recently bought one at $115. The Attention of the august body, called the Board of Health is called to several cess-pools in our borough, that are very offensive. t Serenading Parties have been busy dur ing the evenings of the past week. Tho music must be very effective when it puts their followers to sleep on the porches. Census Appointment. Geo. C. "Wclker, Esq., having resigned the position of Dep uty Marshal for this district, Mr. John A. McCrosky has been appointed in his place. The Democratic county committee met in the court house last Saturday and ap pointed tho loth of August as the time for holding the nominating convention. Appointed. Gen. Gregory, U. S. Mar shal, lias appointed David A. Wertz, Esq., of Chamborsburg, to take tho social statis tics of Adams, Franklin, Cumberland, Dau phin, York, Perry wild Lebanon counties. to Beat. Mr. Henry Cooper, of 1 yrone township, cut a crop of timothy which we think will be hard to beat. From a three acre lot he hauled in eleven eight horse loads each load weighing fully a ton. During the severe shower which visited this vicinity last Wednesday evening, ( a large gum tree, standing near Mr. John Clark's house, in Centre township was struck by lightning, making a complete wreck of it. i Accident to the Aqueduct. Tho bottom lias fallen out of one span of the aqueduct by which the canal crosses tho Juni ata, leaving the canal empty from Bri- ner's to Baker's lock. It will probably stop boating on the Juniata canal for the balance of the season. J. J. S. Tho course we intend to pursue in respect to party questions, and candi dates was plainly set forth in tho Times, of tho 18th mst. By referring to that, you will see that such communications as yours can only be inserted as an advertisement, tho cost of which will bo two dollars. A Gentleman in Middletown recently was awakened by something pulling at his hair and on reaching to the spot caught a large- sized animal, which does not usually inhab. it the head of a man, in the shape of a mouse. His mous-eship was no doubt pro euring material with which to make his ucst comfortable. Fine Berries. We have received from Mr. Morris Hcston a basket of Lawton blackberries which are remarkable fine in appearance and quality. For canning they are the best that can bo had as they pre. serve their shape. Ho has already sold a quantity of them at ten cents per. quart, while ordinary berries have been plenty at four to five cents. ric-Nic The Sunday school scholars , of tho Methodist Church in this borough had a.pic-nic at Milans spring on last Thurs day. The scholars met at the . church and proceeded to -the pic-nio grounds in proces sion, currying .some very pretty . banners, having on them appropriate mottos. About three hundred person partook of the good things, which were so plentifully contribu-, tod. Addresses were made by the Revs. Miller.Bouse and Schriher.and all who were, present express them selves highly pleased with the day's entertainment. Bather Frcnchy. Johnny Steele at one titoe the oil prince, who is now .teamster in that. vicinity, is. said to have t reoently re ceived a letter requesting his. instructions concerning $20,000, which he deposited in. a New York Bank during the high day. of. his prosperity and had utterly forgotten.

Habeckei at .Newport, was struck by lightning during' the shower o Wednesday evening ; the electric fluid de scending the rod until it reached the shin gles) when it divided, passing overcach side Of the roofi The timbers of tho house, and the furniture were considerably damaged, but fortunately no injury was done to any person except to stun one of the children, who soon recovered. Tho makers of that lightning-rod ought not to feel particularly proud of their work, if their rods are all of that stylo. A Strange Incident. The Raftsman's Journal says : Some time last fall, Miss Cora E. Hayes, aged 7 years, daughter of 8. J. Hayes, of Curwensville, Clearfield county, swallowed a needle of 1 J inches in length. The little girl experienced no un pleasant results at the time, fiom swallow ing the needle. Several months ago, how ever, sho began to complain of having a pain in her stomach, and more recently of pain in the region of the bowels and side Thus matters stood until Thursday, Ju ly 7th, when tho needle was taken from her hip, near tho lower extremity of the ileum, by Mr. Hayes and his family physician. This is certainly a very singular aijd rare incident, and one worthy of note. Parents should exercise much precaution to prevent their children from swallowing needles or pins, lest death result from such occurrence. The News in commenting upon a commu nication which appeared in our columns last week intimates that the article was "our own production." From tho readiness with which our friend of the News makes the above charge, it is evident that he personally knows something about that manner of getting communica tions. 'We object, however, to being meas ured in his half-bushel. We did not write the article, but as wo require tho name of every correspondent we know who did, and also know that he does not live such a very great distance from Newport. Orphan School Examinations The sol diers' orphan school at Mount Joy, which is under tho charge of Rev. Jesse Kennedy, had the second annual examination on last Monday. The school now has 1U8 pupils. On the day following an examination was had of the school at White Hall,, the pi in. cipal of which is Capt. J. A. Moore. Both Capt. Moore and Mr. Kennedy are well known in this county, and their friends will be glad to know that the examinations proved that the education of the pupils was entrusted to good hands. Under your Hat. In this country every man of sound mind is a capitalist. Of course this assertion will be challenged. You, Sir Reader, of the thread-bare coat and vacuous wallet deny it utterly. You insist that your brain is healthy and well furnished, but intimate with a sneer that if any conjurer will make discovery of your capital you will doff your napless hat to him and be his to command for evermore Sir, put on your rusty beaver, and4 we will tell where your capital is. . Right under it. We will suppose that i there is common sense a fair stock of - worthy knowlcdgo, and plenty of energy within the circlb of felt that you have just crowned ; yourself withal. That's capital "working capital' of the best kind. If you don't think so you are over modest, and the- sooner' you get rid of your diffidence the better for you and yours. Why;, man, such a head as yours is better , than the philosophers stone. It is an engine that only requires to be set at work, and kept at work, to procure you all the comforts and enjoy, ments that a national being can desire As to 'Wealth its clomonfcs aro lying in their" rude state on every side of you, and only . require perservi'ng manipulation to convert them into the circulating medium Indigent ! With brains and health you have no right to be indigent in a country whoso magnificent resources auo out of all proportion to the numbor of heads and hands thtfre are to develop them. Fifty roads to Success are. open to you. Take the one that suits you best aiul push ahead But yoii wust push' not loiter.. Take this screed of hemcly advice, . and. our word for it your coat hereafter shall be of glossy broadcloth with all accessories to match Don-'fclean on friends, don't borrow, .don't wait for deadlmen's shoes, don't tarry for something to-tHrn up, .or ten to one- it will be the world's nose at; your lack of pluck and industry. Employ- the capital under your hat. Work it wisely, honestly, resol vedly, and the returns are sure to be satis factory. For The Bloomjteld Times. Mr. Editor : Having had the pleasure if beiiii; present at the examination of the pupils of the orphan school at Loysyille, al low me to mako a few notes of it for your paper. 1 Ins school was for some years a -school for soldiers' orphans, exclusively, but some time since the buildings and grounds were purchased by the Lutheran Church, for the purpose of establishing a permanent orphans' home, under the care of the church. The larger number of the pupils are still soldiers orphans there being as yet only twenty supported by the church alone. The examination took place on last Tuesday, July 10th; There were pres ent during the day Rev's. Sell, II. W. and 1. j . Hollmeier, Mr. Bol. liernlicisel and several ladies. The examination was very creditable both to teachers and pupils. It embraced reading, spoiling, mental and written arithmetic, geography and gram mar, interpersed with singing. The chil dren gave their answers very readily and correctly, and gave evidence of having studied well, and of having been carefully instructed. 1 heir deportment was hielily commendable. It was a real pleasure to see them enter the dining-rooin and take their places at the table, all with the great est quietness and order. Throughout the meal they maintained the same good order. 1 he homo is under tho etucient superin tendence of Rev. II. Williard and his fami ly ; who take a great interest in tho welfare of the children, and do all in their power to make secure the comfort and improvement ot the orphans. 1 he children, too, seem to be very much attached to rappio Wil liard, as they call him. The home well deserves, and should re ceive the hearty support of the church that has founded it, as well as of the community in wiiiuu ii. is lociiieti. We remained until late in the evening. seeing tho children in the school-room, in the dining-room and at play : and we camo away very much pleased with our visit to tho Loysvulo Orphan School. F.
