A Good Okganization. It is cratifying to learn that this quarter of p.ho State is to have the advantage of an agricultural organization, which will jrtva this and neighboring counties all the bent-fit usually derived from a State agricultural Society. A number of promioent nnd wealthy gentlemen have obtained a charter for ''The North western Pennsylvania Fair Association." lion. Wm. L. Scott, of Erie, is Presi- and O. B. Grant, Esq., of Elk, is of tho Vice-Presidents. Tho So- offers tho sum of $25,000 in pre. miuiXs, and the first Annual Fair will O 1 1 ISA 1 ouuiuieiieu eepiewuei join, uuu cou- tinue four days. It should be the proud duty of every enterprising agri culturist, horticulturist, manufacturer and stock-grower in Western Pennsyl vania to aid in making the Association complete success. The Premium hit will appear in our paper next week. Hon. A. G. Curtiu will deliver tho ad dress at the Fair. Moth in Carpets One can never quito sure that bis carpets are not bc- ig consumed by moths, except lor a w weeks after having taken them up and thoroughly cleaned, unless some thing is used to prevent their growth or destroy them. This often necessitates be taking up and cleaning of a carpet t otherwise would not need the reno ion. With an ingrain or Lowell, needless labor may be saved by lay- down a damp cloth, and over it ughly rubbing the edges with a at iron; this will kill the moths, have acumulated. But with ta pestry, Brussels or velvet the ironing is not effectual; besides, it injures the carpet- Much bard work can be saved, however, by removing the tacks, one side at a time, rolling back, and exam ining the edges. If there are any moths they must be brushed off and burned; and to effectually destroy the life of all deposits, the edges of the car pet must bo ironed, as before stated, but on the wrong side. The edge of the carpet-lining should be thoroughly looked to, and the exposed edge of the floor washed, and while damp spi inkle w wiin nan. xi iDe carpet is 10 do ioiucu the folds, and see that the floor iwel! covered with salt for an inch or two un der the edge of the carpet all around. If salt were always put under carpet be fore tacking them down moths would have but slight chance to trobblo them.

Waynesburg, Pa., August 8, 1874. It is confidently believed hero that the stolen boy Charley Ross and his abduc tors were bere about tho eleventh day of July. The circumstances attending the coming and goiug of three men and a very small boy, answering the descrip of the boy and his captors, are strongly corroborated by published facts in ref lation to their movements.

This rulo was granted because It was alleged that Burk advised Lizjio Wil helm to secret herself from tho otliccrs of justice Cacoht. It has been no secret for a long time, that Mr. Thomns K. Metsgar, a worthy passenger couductor of tho P. & E. R. R, was the victim of domestic infelicity; that he suspected his wifo of improperly receiving the visits of men during bis absence, and the general impression was that there was some groundwork for these suapic ions.espeoially by thoso who remembered a circumstance of bygono days. Once upon a time a detective named Al llorrell was caught thcte at an unseas onable hour by tho indignant husband and tried to use a slung shot, but Mr. MetKgar wrested it Irom him and gave him a rap with it which caused llorrell to carry the mark for many a day. That was forgiven. How much more, probably tew will know. About a month ago Mr. Melzgar, after paying eomo heavy bills contracted by bis wife, published a notice warning mcrchauts that he would pay nouo con tracted after that date. Since that time be applied for a divorce, and a subpecna was awarded and the case is pending The complaint charges his wifo with adultery and the first person named is Chailes Joachim, a painter, aged about 2:1- Mrs. Mct2ar and a hired girl occupy tho house,, which is a comfortable dwell ing on Kighteenth street, near Peach, Mr. Metzgar boarding elsewhere while in tho city. That Joachim has becu in the habit of visiting there often, seemed to be well known and he was warned rcspectcdly to'stay away. On Saturday, when Metzgar should have gone to Em porium with his train, ho quietly changed off with another conductor;kcpt out of sight and went to tho vicinity of his house last n'ghtto see if any visitors came, lie espied a man on all fours pass an alley way but tho fellow disap peared before ho could get another view, and after waiting awhile, ho went into tho houe aud instituted a search. Hiero was nobody to bo found, though every nook and corner was looked into, and during this time Vi9 was aided by tho jeers of his spouse who denied any one had been there and made fun of (he searching. Finally he was going out baffled, when Mr. Dieffenbach, a neigh bor, shouted out; ''There bo is Tom, on top of the porch," and there he whs, hutlcFS and coatless as ho had emerged irom an upper window, waiting for the hunt to cool so that he could get down. Metzgar ordered him down Under a threat that ho would shoot him if be didn't, nnd like Scott's coon, the youn' man came down by going back Ihouub the window. It was Mr. Charles Joachim, and just as he got to the front door where Mr. Metzgar awaited him, ho applied a very opprobrious epithet to the latter and the nest instant was lying on bin br.ck from the effects of Mr Mctzgar's fist. There was a brief melee in which Mrs M. joined, against Iter husband, but tho upshot was that Mr. M. collared Joachim, took him to the police station and had hirn locked up in readiness for a miirj-tcvial interview to day. Ei iu D iatvh. Fire At RitooKViLLn, A destruct ive fuo occurred at lirookvillo on Thurs day night last. The fire commenced its work of destruction about nine o'clock in the evening in tho foundry and machine shops of Urown, Son & Co.. aud was not controlled until the devour ing flames has consumed not only these variable .-.hops, but .had damaged the Drookville House and the property ot Sheriff Ran- to some extent.

A TEBRiiiLB accident occurred in this villago last Wednesday morning, by which one young lady received, it is thought, a mortal wound, and another is plunged into inconsolable grief by the reflection that it was at her hcuds the mischief was wrought. Tho facts are these,' After Miss Elli Johnson's en counter with the burglar in her sleeping apartnieut some time ago, when she dis played so much genuine heroism, firing at him and driving him from the house, some of our citisecs wishing to demon strate their appreciation of her eourage, contributed a sum sufficient to buy a gold-mounted revolver and presented it to her. It has been much admired by many young ladies of that neighborhood, and pistol practice has entered largely into the pastime of the owner and her friends. Last Wednesday morning the two daughters ot Mr. II. G. White were present during the target firing, at the termination ot which the pistol was cleaned and loaded. Miss Johnson was on the point ot putting it away, when she noticed a spot on the hammer, drawing it back to wipe it off, her thumb slipped and the pistol was dis charged, the ball entering the lower bowels of Miss Adel YVhito on the left sido. The young lady was imme diately carried borne, aud surgical aid called. Everything nas been done that the promptings of affection and friend ship ean devise, but tho latest advices from the sufferer give but little hope for her recovery. This is an occurrence of sad import and casta a gloom over tho wbolo village aud it is hoped it may have a tendency to check the recent mania of our young ladies to possess nroarms, as far more danger is appre hended from bunglers than burglars. Wellsville Democrat. Miss White has since died, and was buncd oil buuduy lust. t:i t8 t'la Assistants. Under the old Constitution of this State, but ten days rcsidenoe in an elec tion distriot was necessary to qualify a voter, and the payment of a tux assessed within ten days would cnablo him to vote, if otherwiso qualified; and the people having grown used to this short period of preparation for an election, there is danger that many of them will forget that the new Constitution im poses a longer period and exacts a greater amount of early attention to what bus heretofore bfcon put oil until the last moment. Under the uew Constitution, every person offering to voto must show I. That ho has been a citizen of the United States at least one mouth. This ill cut off all persons naturalized alter the 8d day ol October in tho pres ent year. 11. That be has resided in the State a year or, if f'oimeily a resident nnd re moved therefrom shall have returned six months preceding the election. This is tho same provision that prevailed in the old Constitution. III. That he hns resided in tho el ection district whero he offers to vote, nt least two months immediately beforo the election. And IV. That lie has, within two years and at least a month before tho election, paid a State or couuty lax assessed at least two months prior to the election. Heretofore, taxes could be p.iid up to and on the day of election. .Now they will have to be puid a month before. Assessments Diti.-t be made at least two months previously, instead of teu day, and a two months' residence in the dis trict must be shown. It behooves every one Who wants to vote at the ensuing election to seo th?t his name is on iho Assessor's list for his district before the ild of September next The Assessors are required, by law, to exihbit their lists nt tho polling places, arid imy one can see for himself whether he is assessed or not It will also bo essential to see that the taxes as. ecssed are paid before the 3d of October, or tho receipts will not avail; and persons who aro applicants for naturalization will do well to get their papers out in season Any person naturalized after October 3d of this year will not be entitled to vote until next year.
