CNG kkssio nat, EbKCTioN. -I5y alaw passed ut tlie last session of Congress, the Tuesday following tho first Monday in Js'oveiiiber, is fixed as the day Jor all tSiates to elect members of Congress. The heat of the Summer has been most destructive to human life. n New York city alone, over six hundred cases of sun stroke, have occurred, and in all parts of the country, an unusual number of such accidents have been reported. Gknuiak SiihiUDAN and General For-f-yllie, a member of his stall", sailed from JN'ew York last Wednesday, for Europe to visit the camp of the French and Prus sian armies. General Sheridan is granted furlough for the purpose of this visit, lut pays his own expenses. The Hack between the English Yacht Cambria, and the American Yacht Daunt less, resulted in the defeat of the Amer ican vessel. I he Cambria arriving nrvm It miniicK in advance of the lhiuntless. hi a race from Kuropc to New York .such a little difference is to say the least, re markable, and shows that tho vessels are well-matched. The Old Gkxti.kmax who is unfortu nate enough to be called the l'ope, is likely to have more trouble in his old age. Tire French troops have been called away, and revolt already shows itself in the "Eternal City." Without the French bayonets it is very probable that the l'ope will set on u very uncertain throne. Intkkkstiso to Soldi kiis. Soldiers who lost limb;', during the Jiebelliun, will be glad to know that a law was passed, giving to each soldier so maimed, an arti ficial limb, or to those who have had one furnished-, a renewal every five years. If. however, he so desires, he can, instead of the limb, receive money at the following rate. For a leg $7o, arm $50, i'eet $"U. Apparatus for resection 330. Those whn have lost limbs, but from tho nature ol the case cannot use aa artificial one, can take tho money. A law was also passed making pensions payable quarterly, instead of semi-annually as heretofore. A Wondkukul Dkcisiox has recently been rendered by ono of the officials of the Internal llevenue Department, in proof of which wo refer our readers to the following letter: OIIIcb Treasury Department, ) Washington, July 8, 1N70. S Sir : J. Bustress, Cashier First National Bank, of York, Pa., writes under data of the seventh Instant, to this ollicc, enquiring if the clause "without defalcation" inserted in a promissory note, subjects such note touu addi tional tt..nip. llu lias been referred to yiu, nnd you aro therefore advised that such notes should, in ad dition to the stamp required upon thein,is ?, be stamped agreements,- with respect to the clause or words quoted. Respectfully, J. W Poitgi.ass, Deputy Commissioner. 3. W. Patton, Esq., Collector, Calisle, Pa. AVe always suppo.-ed a note una an agreement inils' lj- an agreement to pay u certain uuiount at a specified time. That the words ' without defalcation,' which hae btea ri ited as u n. utter if form, into iieailyull blank notes for years, should 'change the character of the agree ment so as ui require an additional stamp, is an idea that could only originate in the mind of a lievcuue official. Ordinary minds fail to comprehend, the justice of such a decision. V'hy not with -tho fame propriety add still another Mump if the note contains the words, "with interest?" us those words, with more show of reason do add au urccuieiit. The Needle Gun. At the present time, a description of tho needle gun. upon which weapon the Prussians depend, may bo interesting to our readers. 1 his celebrated gun is a brcech-lond-ing, single barrelled, non-revolving rifle. With a movement of nn apparent trig ger, a section of the top of the barrel slides back far enough to ad. nit the cart ridge to be placed in tho cavity of the barrel, which is done by tho gunner, with his left hand, without removing the piece from his shoulder, or, necessarily, losing his nim. Another movement restores the section of the top of the barrel to its place, and firmly fastens it. ready st the instant for firing. It can be fired, there lore, twelve times in a minute, until the barrel is too hot to admit of the introduc tion of the cartridge, and this is not easily done, as the cartridge ignites by friction only, and not by Micro heat, and the time it remains in tho chamber before being fired is but an instant. Behind the cartridge, us it lies when the f:un is loaded, is the air-chamber, about two and half inches in length, through which the needle darts forward to pierce the charge. The cartridge is made up with the ball resting directly against the pow der, without wadding and in the rear of the powder is a percussion substance which is ignited by the piercing of the needle, wheu the trigger is pulled. Fall of a SIctror. A letter from Freedom, Missouri, gives an account of a recent fall of a me teor near that place. The substance of the letter is that on (he "lli of July, the family of Joseph Yoiinge were startle.! by tho appearance of a column of flame in the air, which extended many hundred feet upward to a point, and rapidly ap proaching the earth. It was attended with a rushing noise which became al most deafening as it drew near, and en ded with a report like the loudest thun der. From the commencement of the light until the report, was scarcely more than a second. Soon after the occurrence at a distance of some two hundred yards from .Mr. Younge's house, was found a body, of n.etalie characteristics and ir regular form. From its position and the appearance of the ground it must have fallen from the touth. Its weight is about as much as a man can readily lift. Its color is dark brown, almost black, and in ono spot it shows a inctalic tint. When struck with a hammer it gives a sonorous ring and indicates a good de gree of elasticity. It also bears evidence of having been subjected to intense heat This strange visitor from the regions ol the air is attracting much attention in the neighborhood. JB-Qf There is a new use for petroleum. One Samuel Uiyaut, of Carrolton, .Mis sissippi, has discovered that it will make the hair grow. The way bo found out this new property of coal oil was simply this: He had a large boil on the bald place on his head, which gave him much pain, nod in the absence of anything else lie rubbed coal oil on it. He says it re lieved the pain almost instantly, so ho continued to rub on the oil until the boil was entirely well, when to his sur prise, he found a thin, coating of hair coming out over tho bald place, lie contiuued the use of the oil for a mouth or two, and uow has a heavy coat of hair oq his head. AVar News. At tho seat? of war, affair. still remain in about the same condition as at our last report. There have been .several slight skirmishes, but nothing of importance has yet taken place. Until parties a re getting ready for the conflict by massi ag troops and collecting materials, and when the shock does come, (which may not be for some days) it will undoubtedly be oue of the greatest battles of this century. So far, both Franco and 1'russia are acting on the defensive, as neither natiou is alto gether prepared. Fatal Accident. An nccident happened at Profit Island about four miles below Port Hudson on the Mississippi, last week. There are on the island quite a number of those deadly missiles which were known during the war as lamp-posts, und which were probably thrown there from the gun-boats. One of them a 150-pound shell, a number of men and boys took it into their heads to investigate, drilling at tho vent with a steel hatchet and chisel. The result was that the shell exploded, killingoutright two men and two boys, and wounding another boy. Tho four persons killed were lit torully torn to utoins, being nn uudis-tiugui.-:hable mass of human flesh. A Singular Case. Tho lliclimund correspondent of the Petersburg CtmrtW writes : The chief topic of the town now is the out raucous treatment ot their neicc, Miss Mollie Ste vens, by Mr. Liva l.aloiid nnd his wife. The accused have been arrested on a charge of gross cruelty toward tho un fortunate young lady whom they had in their power. The matter has been much talked of for several weeks in that part of the city where Lafond lives. The neighbors have obsorved how Miss Ste vens was beaten, starved, imprisoned and otherwise infamously dealt with She has had no sufficient or decent clothing and she has been kept in a most tilth, condition, so as to deter her from ventur ing abroad should she get out of her lock room. At the windows of this room she has often stood, pitcoiisly begging every one who came in hearing for bread. . On Sunday last, her cries becoming heart-rending, the neighbors again in vaded the premises, and caught Laibud himself, armed with a paddle bored full of holes, und beating her pitilessly. She is a skeleton, bruised and scarred from head to foot, scarcely able to walk alone, and almost air idiot from her sufferings. Clothes had to be given her to cover her before she could be brought into the police court. The examination d' Eal'oud and his wife is postponed, and Miss Stevens has been placed in charge of a family that will take good care ol her. Her guardian and brother, who live in an adjoining county, have been sent for. All the parties are said to be respectable and of good family, and the guardian of Miss Stevens pays Lafond a liberal monthly allowance for her board and clothing. A Curious Accident. The Serantoii Jtrjiiiburun is responsi ble for the following: An accident of a curious character occurred to an old gentleman named Pet feboue, who carries the mail between Wilkesbarre and hake post-ofiiee, on Thursday last. About four miles from Wilkesbarre, on the road to Harvey's liakc, Mr. Pettebone attempted to pass one of the wagons of the G. A. 11. Ex cursion, and the road being very narrow, he drove horse, wagon and ail oer an embankment into a ravine of stumps, rocks, and brush. The members of the Grand Army immediately rushed to the rescue, and i:i a few minutes had raised the wagon and horse, to neither of which any damage wis perceptible. The old man was more unfortunate, and was bleed ing profusely from tho face. Two medi cal gentlemen in the party made an ex amination, ana found-that tho only injury he had received was on the nose.. It ap pears that Mr. Pettebone was alilicted with cancer on the nose, and on falling struck his nasal organ in such a manner as to cut the cancer clean oil'. The nose was put into us good shape as possible by the two doctors, and if tho cancer does not again make its appearance the ncci dent will prove to have beeu a blessing in disguise. Desperate Attempt at Bobbery. A desperate attempt to rob Mr. Brown ing, Teller ol' the First National Hank of Fishkill village, was made at Cold spring N. Y., rn last Wednesday. Mr. 11 own ing was standing in front of a store, near the depot, waiting for the up train, and had in his hand a carpet bag containing several thousand dillnrs. collected for de posit in his hank. Suddenly a man walk ed up to him, and, throwing a handful of rod pepper in his eyes, seized the satchel and run into Mr. Munsell's grounds, near tho depot, where Mr. Miiuscll's coachman seized him and threw him to the ground and recaptured the satchel. The thief then drew a revolver and fired three shots at tho coachman, one of which took effect in tho luttcrs abdomen mortally wounding him. Citizens at once seized the thief anil handed him over to the sheriff, who took him to Car-, mel jail. Tho thief gives his iiaino as John Smith, and says lie resides in New York. Mr. Frowning,' eyes v.ero badly injured by the pepper. All severe harrassing Coughs are cured in less than one-half the time necessary to cure them with anything else by using J)r.

Shortly after midnight, on Thursday Mr. Benjamin Nathan, a banker residing at No, 12 W. Twenty-third street, New York, was murdered in his sleeping cha i. her. by robbers. An evening pa per of that city says : As the details of tho crime became known, it is apparent that for atrocity the murder is unparalleled in this city. Since the murder of Helen Jewctt, and later, that of Dr. Burdell and old Mr. Bogers in Twelfth street, no crime of a similar nature has been committed in the ciiy that presents so many revolting features. 23 A frightful crime has come to light iu the West. Some speculators liavo been buying infeeti d buffalo robes from the Indians of the plains who are are afllicted Willi small-pox, and have transporicd theiii Kat ami resold them so that the loathsome d.sease has been scattered brwaucust in tiie States. '1 he facts have only recently been discovered, (hie 'housaud three hundred robes have been sei.ed by the government at Mi"ta station.

UTS'" A cat belonging to a lady at Halifax Court House, Virginia, a few weeks ago discharged from its stomach a lnoeiiasin snado 2'J inches long. The suako was alive and killed by persons present. From its appearance, being thoroughly bleached, it is supposed that when qui to young and small it was swallowed by the cat, and had grown and been nourished for a long time within tho stomach. Tho owner of the cat had noticed for somo time its voracious ap petite, which it was almost impossible to satisfy. The snake accounts for it. The " Pain-Killer." The foreign anil domestic demand for Perry Pa vis & Son's great inediclne tlie l'uln Killer was never before so large at it lias been of late ; and w e think the time lias arrived when the declaration may be made, without the possibility of refutation, that the city of Providence, In the State of lihodo Island, of the United States of America, ha's fur nished the habitable globe with a medicine, which, in point of universality of demand, extent of use fulness, complete elllcienry for all the purposes for which it Is designed nnd wide-spread, enduring popularity, lias never been equalled by nny medi cine In Kurope or America. The un.rcnnlity if the ilemnnd for the Tain Killer, Is a novel, interesting, and surprising fea ture in the history of tliismedicine. Its "fame lias gone out," into every quarter of the habitable globe. The Pain Killer is now regularly sold in large and tteiulily IncriniHinn quant Mm, not only to general agents in every State and Territory of the Union, and every I'rouineeof liiitish America, but to Huenos Ayies, 111 uzil, Uruguay, Peru, Chill and other South American States to the Sandw ich Islands; to l'.nglnnd and Cunlinental Kuropc; to Mozambique. Madagascar, Zanzibar and other African lauds; to Austialiaand Calcutta, ltangoon i. ud other places in India. It lias also been sent to China, and we doubt if there, is any foreign port or inland city in Africa ot Asia, which Is frequented by American and Kuropean missionaries, travellers or traders, into which the Pain Killer has not been Introduced and been sought after. The extent of itn HwtOiesx is another great fea ture of this remarkable medicine. It is not only the best thing ever know n, as evervbody w ill con fess, for bruises, cuts, burns, &c. but for dysen tery or cholera, o'r any sort of bowel 'complaint it is a remedy unsurpassed for etliciency and rapidi ty of action.
