Sinco May last, our town has received frequent visits from Pittsburg and New York detectives no ono knowing the object of their visits. Of course all havo become curious to learn it. The following will explain : Somo two weeks ago, Chief of Police, of Pittsburg, w rote to a gentleman hero, of fering a largo reward for information that would lead to tho arrest of a notorious character, named Charles Simmons, form erly a resident of this place. At tho time, Simmons' whereabouts was not known, but on Tuesday last it was ascertained that ho was in Troy, N. Y. Information to that effect was immediately sent to Pittsbnrg, when the authorities there telegraphed to the Troy Police to arrest him. The Troy Police telegraphed back that ho had left there for Duncannon. Chief of Police of Pittsburg then telegraphed to Mr. John A. Shearer, constable of this borough, to ar rest, and detain Simmons, who, meanwhile, had arrived hero, and got "wind" of how matters stood, nd had gone to tho Juniata Bridge, ono and a half mile west of here, to tako tho 8.30 p. m. train for Harrisburg. Mr. Shearer, accompanied by Messrs. Goo. Caswell and Jacob Whitmiro proceeded to that place, (Bridge,) and found their man in the back yard awaiting tho train. They arrested him without much trouble, but on taking him to tho waiting-room, he espied an open door, for which he suddenly start ed, dragging Shearer with him to tho rail road, where a terrible scuffle ensued, in which he got tho better of tho officer, and would havo then escaped, only for Caswell, who came to the rescue. They again col lared him, and proceeded to tho buggy in which they had came, but while Whitmiro was untying tho horse, and Caswell on tho opposite sido of tho buggy, he, with a sud. don bound, escaped, and turning a corner ran up tho railroad, closely pursued by the trio, and whon nearly recaptured leaped a palo fence, and disappeared in a cornfield, where he kept concealed until tho search was given up, when ho broke tho lock of a skiff and crossed tho river, mak ing good his escapo for tho present. I am not aware of tho nature of tho of fence committed by Simmons, bnt judging from efforts mado to arrest him they must bo serious. W. II. W. ChnrcJi Notices.

Tho young man who jumped off tho cars near Harrisburg last week has since died. Tho population of York according to tho recent census is 11.015. Tho foundation of the Extension for tho Presbyterian Church is being rapidly put up. See advertisement of the New Yokk On RKKVEit in another column. It is sent free to all for one month.

AVantof light has much to d( with these troubles. Two gentlemen from this borough recent ly brought in seventeen squircls as tho re sult of an afternoons hunt. A drunken man with $8000 in his pockets was picked up on tho streets of Harrisburg by tho police, last week. Tho fino rain of Saturday and Sunday will bo very acceptable to our farmers, as it was badly needed. Now is tho time to lay in your winter slock of coal. For a good article well screened, we reconiend Kough Sj Sons of Newport. Isn't it curious that men who are not able to pay small honest debts havo so much time to set around bar rooms and can af ford to tako such frequent drinks ? Dr. John Bechtel of Ilarrisburg has been held to bail in tho sum of $2000 on the chargo of abortion, resulting in death to tho young womau.

Siiekmansdale, Pa., Aug. 20, 1870. Mr. Editor On Saturday, the 0th ult, the American Mechanics, of Shermansdalo Council No. 180, turned out in regalia, on the occasion of a Biblo presentation, by tho ladies of Shermansdalo, and friends of the order. Quito a crowd gathered at tho "Dale," and when the hour for tho pres entation came, as many as could get in the ball crowded in. A large, beautiful Bible, bearing in guilt letters tho inscription, " Presented to Shermansdalo "Council No. 180 O. U. A. M., by tho ladies of Sher mansdalo and vicinity," was then present ed to tho council, and next, a now set of chairs and a rug. A vote of thanks was then tendered to tho ladies by tho council, after which Mr. Thomas Milliken, of Dun cannon, delivered an address ; in the course of which ho spoko of tho origin of tho or der, twenty-iive years ago, which now num bers nearly 800 councils in Pennsylvania alone ; and is rapidly spreading throughout other States. Mr. Jacob Billow next ad dressed tho audience, and as there is so much prejudice in some places against se cret associations, he dared any ono to offer any complaint against tho order that they had any reason to make on account of any injury or damago that they, or any body else, ever sustained from this or any other secret society that carries the word of God with their banner ; but so far, no one has responded, and I am convinced that they are prejudiced without a cause. Tho order is gaining ground here, and I wish them sueces. A Spkctatou. For the Bloomfield Times. Dunciuiuou Improvements. There are quite a number of now houses being built in this flourishing village, this season. The gontloman who laid out a number of lots on tho Clark farm, somo 00 or more, have sold between 40 and 00 some C2 perhaps, and no doubt the whole will ultimately bo taken into the borough. Tho school Directors of Pcnn Township have purchased 6 lots at tho extreme upper and on the north western corner and have con tracted with J. R. Wcnsel to build a now school house 28 by 32 which is to be finish ed by tho 22d of October, the mason work is done, lumber is all on tho ground and the carpenters are at work busily. Mr. Win. Slavery who moved here from Blain in April has a very beautiful house 24 by 80 almost finished not far from the new school house. Mr. 8. displayed very good taste in the planing and building of his house and is welcomed to our town and wo wish him suocoss. Moke Again. A Devilish Plot. Tho Lancaster JuteHiywrr cays : On Monday night hict n most devilish scheme was attempted on the Pennsylvania rail road at ftaby's Curve, about ono mile west of the Gap Station, to throw the (Jin" cinnatti Kxprc.s train off the track! Tho object, it is supposed, was to rob the passengers on (lie. train or tho express car. This curve l very short, and the c-.iiliankiiicnt h pre ay Ii:yh, rendering it a dangerous portion of the road, and should tho attempt have proven success ful, no ono can toll v.hat iniylit have been the loss of -life or how terrible an acci dent would iiavo happened. It appears that a tie was yhnA across the track, but fortunately not fastened tightly thereto. The Cincinnati Express train being con si'lerably behind time, the freight train:) received orders to proceed ahead to Lea niau Place station. O.n: of the freight trains struck tho 'u: carrying it along so.'n.i distance nnt-il tho cn;.v!uo was s.t..) ped and the tie removed, when it was ta ken a Iter wards to .Leainan l'iace. Jt is thought that tho' parlies in putting down the tie were frightened by the approach of the freight train, so that they did not stop long enough to fasten it to tho rails.
